There was no penalty, such as feeling heavier.

“So, how much for both of them?”

“You don’t need to pay for anything.”

“Hmm? What do you mean?”

“It’s covered as necessary expenses.”

Then her face turned serious as she brought her face closer to Haruki.

“We asked a lot of Adventurers for help, but due to Oiso going down there of her own accord, and because it was so soon after the stampede, no one lent us a hand. All the strong Adventurers are headed off to Shinjuku Station, and the others wouldn’t be able to reach the 8th layer… Mister Karaboshi, you are the only one who would accept the quest. Both of you!”

“…”

Haruki wanted to tilt his head to the side after hearing this.

This was the biggest city in Hokkaido.

Was it even possible that there were no Adventurers who would accept the quest?

He could understand if this was for the lower layers.

But this was on the higher layers.

Beginner Adventurers were able to go up to the 9th floor. There were many in Sapporo who could do that.

On top of that, the client was a big company.

It didn’t seem likely that no one would accept it…

However, if that’s what she was saying, then it must be true.

And so Haruki pushed his doubts to the corner of his mind.

“Please. Please find Oiso for us!”

“…Okay.”

She was probably thinking about the worst-case scenario already.

He could see a resolve in her eyes. Whether he brought back the bones or didn’t find anything at all, she would not be shaken.

“I’ll do my best.”

With renewed determination, Haruki left the store behind him.

And in his heart, he pleaded to Oiso.

They care about you so much. And so, do everything you can to survive!

[The Road to becoming a Noticeable Being]

The Rescue

Hello, it’s Air(^o^)

I’ve been hunting Silver Wolves for a while.

It was scary at first, but now I’m used to it. In fact, they’re kind of cute? That’s what I think these days.

I wonder if there’s a way to keep them as pets?(>_<)

They seem like they’d make really good watchdogs.(^o^) Bark! Bark!

I accepted a quest and came down to the Chikaho dungeon.

The search starts today!(>_<)

We have to search between the 6th and 8th floors.

As we’re not strong enough to rush through the area, we plan to slowly increase the field of search.

But I’ll do my best to be quick. (= =;

I’ll find you no matter what.

So please stay safe until then!

I worked hard leveling up again today!

Now, maybe I’m one step closer to being noticeable? Maybe?

67 Name: Beware of Bears, Deer, and Anonymous

Hey, I saw the masked man today.

68 Name: Beware of Bears, Deer, and Anonymous

What’s that?

69 Name: Beware of Bears, Deer, and Anonymous

I think it’s that guy that Masatsugu talked about before.

70 Name: Beware of Bears, Deer, and Anonymous

>> Details

71 Name: Beware of Bears, Deer, and Anonymous

That mask was weird.

The kind that you know immediately that the person is messed up.

He didn’t have much of a presence, but the mask did.

It was like the mask was floating in the air. Lol

72 Name: Beware of Bears, Deer, and Anonymous

What the hell. That’s scary.

Did he seem strong?

73 Name: Beware of Bears, Deer, and Anonymous

His equipment was a combination of old and new.

Maybe he cleared the higher levels.

74 Name: Beware of Bears, Deer, and Anonymous

Huh, that’s surprisingly normal.

Still, a guy wearing a mask…

Was there such a guy in Sapporo before?

75 Name: Beware of Bears, Deer, and Anonymous

He might be one of those people that live near a countryside dungeon.

After all, I’ve never seen him before.

76 Name: Beware of Bears, Deer, and Anonymous

I see. That’s possible.

Try talking to him if you see him again.

77 Name: Beware of Bears, Deer, and Anonymous

Got it.

If he seems strong, I’ll invite him to the team.

78 Name: Beware of Bears, Deer, and Anonymous

Don’t do that.

He’s clearly nothing special.

He won’t be impressive.

79 Name: Beware of Bears, Deer, and Anonymous

Is this the first time you’re posting here?

Well, have some tea and pull up a chair.

80 Name: Beware of Bears, Deer, and Anonymous

No, really. He’s just a weakling.

Masatsugu only talked to him because of the incident.

81 Name: Beware of Bears, Deer, and Anonymous

Incident?

Oh, when the Adventurer suddenly attacked another Adventurer.

I heard rumors that a certain team member had a bone to pick.

Does this masked guy have a lot of baggage?

82 Name: Beware of Bears, Deer, and Anonymous

That was the masked guy’s fault.

Maybe he wanted to fight the other team.

He whispered rumors into Masatsugu’s ear.

Something about abandoning beginners or unsheathing their weapons first.

83 Name: Beware of Bears, Deer, and Anonymous

>> 82 You sure know a lot.

Are you related?

84 Name: Beware of Bears, Deer, and Anonymous

I just saw it up close.

That masked man.

He was talking very loud, after all.

85 Name: Beware of Bears, Deer, and Anonymous

Hmm.

So, we shouldn’t get involved with him?

86 Name: Beware of Bears, Deer, and Anonymous

Of course, not.

People like that who think they’re sly will always end up dying in the dungeon.

So leave him alone and don’t get involved.

87 Name: Beware of Bears, Deer, and Anonymous

>>86 I see. Understood.

So.

Who the hell are you?
