Journey of an Exiled Middle-Aged Adventurer Becoming a Hero [Chapter 13]

Worms

Count Rieton, who seemed excited and unable to calm down, carried me on his shoulders as we headed towards the mine.

“Ugh… I feel like I’ll be crushed by the muscles…”

“Hahaha! Although I’ve thrown men, it’s been a long time since I carried them on myself.”

Moreover, he was incredibly fast. At a speed that didn’t seem human.

“Hey, wait for us!”

“They’re going too f-fast…!”

Elisa and Yui are quickly getting away from us. They probably will never catch up to me.

…While I’m stuck with this muscular man.

I regret accepting this request.

I’d rather be surrounded by two cute girls than this sweaty guy.

“We’re almost there!”

But I admit, he is quite fast.

Ah… I want to be next to Elisa and Yui…!

…Although it’s not something a man of my age should say.

“This is really tough, isn’t it?”

“The resources are being devoured by the worms… this is quite disheartening…”

It’s easy to notice people’s mood changes; after all, the mine was in very bad condition.

It’s full of holes everywhere.

It wouldn’t be surprising if it collapsed at any moment.

Given that there is a nearby village, if a collapse were to occur, it would cause significant damage.

It’s a matter that needs to be addressed urgently.

“So, where are the worms exactly?”

It’s late, but it’s still early to call it night.

It seems the worms are not awake currently. We cannot determine their location from here.

“Leave it to me! I will wake them up!”

As he said that, Count Rieton began to touch the walls of the mine.

“What are you doing?”

“Although this place is in danger of collapsing, if you hit the right spot, those guys will wake up suddenly.”

Count Rieton raised his fist and struck the wall hard.

The previous impact made the mine shake violently.

It’s hard to imagine that someone can cause a tremor manually, but I suppose he can.

“…It’s coming!”

“Is it really coming?”

I took a step back immediately and readied my fist.

“Hmm… Are you not going to use that sword hanging from your waist even in situations like these? That’s impressive!”

“Well, it’s more for precaution than anything else.”

Although I have a sword, I don’t usually use it.

There is no deep reason, but if I had to mention one, I would say it’s easier to fight with fists.

“It’s here!”

A worm leaps out from a hole in front of us.

Both Count Rieton and I stepped back to assess the situation.

“Wow… it’s huge!”

“It’s a large specimen!”

What is its total length?

If Count Rieton was facing this worm alone, that makes it terrifying.

“Alright, let’s do this…”

I gave myself a tap on the cheek and prepared to face the worm.
