Chapter 185: Imposters, fear the warrior Part 2

Imposters, fear the warrior Part 2

A large amount of sand enters the enclosed room.

“There’s a lot of sand coming in!”

“This is bad!”

“I don’t want to die like this.”

“Fufu, I guess we’ll meet again on the other side.”

The members of the fake Manyu Brigade hugged each other as they accepted their fate.

Kaede, Frau and I exchanged glances as we watched.

…. Why are they giving up so quickly?

The three of us then nodded and began looking around.

There must be some way out of here. What if I try to break down the walls? Or maybe I shouldn’t?

With this in mind, I suddenly heard Kaede, who was exploring the place, shout.

“It looks like this place has a special coating. It’s a dozen times stronger than usual.”

“You mean we can’t break it?”

“I think so…”

It’s really interesting to see how strong the ruins of this continent are.

“Master, if we don’t do something soon, we’ll all be buried alive.”

“Shit.”

I might die if I get buried in all this sand.

I have to find a way to get out of here.

I hurriedly pounded the ground with great force using my fists.

Suddenly, the sand was washed away by the impact, exposing the floor that had been completely covered up, causing the bottom of the floor to start cracking, with the lot of us falling through the ground.

“…Are you all right?”

I push aside the debris and stand up.

It’s too dark to see my surroundings, but I’m sure I’m in a very big place.

The smell of dust was unbearable, though.

“*Cough cough*, Master… Here.”

Kaede had created an orb of light with her magic.

We were in a straight hallway, with large stone statues of warriors placed evenly on either side.

The hole we fell through was right above us, sand still falling from it.

Where are Frau, Panda, and the fake Manyu brigade?

As soon as I looked around, I saw them lying a few distances away from me.

“Hey you guys… Wake up.”

“Huh? Where are we?”

The fake Toru stands up.

The other three also stand up as soon as Kaede calls out to them.

“Where are Frau and Panda?”

“Here!”

A bright light appeared at the end of the hallway.

What could that be?

Is it some kind of monster?

But I dismissed those thoughts upon seeing up close that it was Frau.

She was illuminating the place as she flew over on Panda.

“I thought we had fallen together in the same place.”

“And we did. But I woke up first and wanted to investigate the surroundings.”

“Good thinking.”

“Hehe, thanks.”

When I stroke her head, her expression relaxes into a smile.

“Okay, let’s keep going.”

“Hey, what do you think you’re doing? We’re the real Manyu Brigade, we’ll be the guides.”

“Ah, yeah, sorry.”

I played along with the fake Toru and stepped aside. With that, we resumed our exploration of the place again.

Further down the hallway lined with stone statues, we were led into a large room.

There was a pedestal and a magnificent golden chest at its center. It looked like it could hold a lot of jewels or valuable objects inside.

“Treasure!”

“Kyui!”

Frau and Panda flew towards the chest.

When I decided to walk towards them, someone suddenly tapped my shoulder. I turned my head back to see what was happening, and saw fake Toru frozen in place with his sword in his hand.

…Hm? What is he trying to do?

“Impossible… What is that thing?”

“How could you not notice something like that!”

“We can’t fight it! It’s as strong as a rock!”

“Kyaaaaaaaaaaaaaa.”

Suddenly, Frau’s scream echoed through the place.

There was a six-headed Hydra in the room.

Hmmm. I see… Maybe that’s why that guy had the sword in his hand. Maybe they weren’t as bad as I thought, they wanted me to notice the monster by warning me about it.

However, Kaede had a look of distrust in her eyes.

“They are very suspicious people, but I think they are good after all.”

“Do you really think so? Well, if you say so, Master.”

Kaede looked hesitant, but quickly changed her expression to a smile.

There are people in this world who judge things based on appearance. It doesn’t make me happy that they impersonated us, but perhaps it has deeper reasons than simply stealing our identity.

“No, not that way.”

“Kyui! Kyu!”

“Shut up and keep flying!”

Frau swung her hammer to knock the Hydra down, but with a deft swing of its long neck, the monster quickly dodged the attack.

Panda, who was supporting her, tries to read its movements, even though they were both elated due to all their attacks missing.

“Frau-san, you have to aim downwards, at the base, not at their heads.”

“The base? Ah, right.”

Frau realized what Kaede was trying to say. Despite being a creature that has six heads, it still only has one body.

If you want to defeat a monster like this, you must strike it at the base.

“Frau, draw it here.”

“Fairy Hammeeeeeer!”

Frau swung her hammer at the hydra sending it flying towards me. I then swung my sword and slashed at its body.

As soon as my sword touched its body, I couldn’t cut through it completely. So I decided to strengthen my muscles with my physical enhancement skill and instant acceleration.

With one strike, the blade pierced through the hydra’s scales and I managed to cut its body in half.

I shook the blood off my sword and re-sheathed it.

“Is anyone hurt?

“……”

“……”

“……”

“……”

The four shook their heads, pale faced.

“Let’s go to the treasure!”

“Kyui~”

As I focused my attention on the fake Manyu Brigade. Frau headed towards the treasure chest.

Kaede and I also proceeded to approach it to see what surprises would be waiting for us… But we were extremely disappointment after realizing that it was actually empty.

What a waste of time.

“Master, wouldn’t this chest be of some value?”

“Maybe the chest itself is the treasure.”

“Kyui?”

The design of the chest itself was beautiful. If we managed to sell it, we could probably get a good price for it.

But my ‘Great Thief’ skill tells me there’s more, deep inside this room to be precise.

I walk over to the wall and start feeling around.

I can’t find any holes. Or any mechanism that we can move.

So I tried to pry it open.

*Boom*

A hole opened up in the wall, revealing a hidden room.

“Kaede, I need light.”

“Okay.”

Soon the room is illuminated, revealing a large egg inside.

“This is what I think it is…”

“Yes, it’s a strengthening egg.”

I can’t believe there’s something like this here. And not only will I be able to improve Rosuke’s stats. But also SharkBoy’s.

Although I should also upgrade Chupibi or Kuratan.

Well, it doesn’t really matter who I choose. The important thing is that I will be able to improve the stats of one of them.

“Kyu~”

“You’ll have to wait until next time, Panda-san.”

“Come here, Frau will give you lots of love.”

Panda, who was circling the eggs, seemed to not be very happy.

I think I should look for an egg to improve his stats specifically.

“That thing is shaped like an egg.”

“What are we supposed to do with it?”

“No way we’re taking it, that thing is probably dangerous!”

“Let’s just leave it with them, settle for the chest and then get the hell out of here.”

When I looked back, all four of them were smiling and rubbing their hands together.

“Is it okay if I keep it?”

“Go ahead, we’ll settle for the money from the chest! Oh, as long as you guys are willing to split the earnings fifty-fifty!”

“I don’t mind splitting the money from the chest with you guys, but can I really keep the egg?”

“Sure, don’t worry about it!”

After the fake Toru’s words, the other three members nodded vigorously.

Hmm, I don’t know what to think of these people anymore.

I can’t believe they’re giving us the egg. But, well, I guess it’s okay.

After that, I put the egg away in my magic storage.

When we arrived in the city, we went to a merchant’s stall, sold the chest we found, then split the money for the sale as we had agreed.

I was also willing to share some materials we extracted from the Hydra with them, but they flatly refused to accept it.

And so, we parted ways in front of the guild.

“Hehehe, thanks for everything.”

“What’s with the attitude? You used to act a bit overbearing before.”

“Because you’re so superior to me! Clearly the difference in our strength is too great, and I’ve been quite the boor in that regard… Ha, how I wish I could punch myself in the face.”

I don’t think it’s necessary to be so self-deprecating.

“By the way, about the fake Manyu Brigade…”

“Ah right, tell me, what do you want to kno- EEEH?!”

The fake Toru quickly hides behind me.

After that strange behavior, I have a lot of questions.

Quickly his companions hid behind him as well.

I turned my attention in the direction where they were looking and I saw two people, a man and a woman.

They were dressed in what appeared to be red military uniforms.

“Hey hey, what are those people doing here?”

“How many times do I have to tell you, you idiot? We knew they were going to show up any minute, now we have to figure out a way to get away.”

“You make it sound easy.”

“Oh yeah? You got a better plan, genius?”

“…Eeeh, yo….”

“Yeah, I thought so…”

What the hell is going on with these people?

Are they running from someone specific?

As these questions invade my head. The two people the fake Manyu Brigade were hiding from walked in front of us without even seeing us.

“Impossible…?”

“What?”

“Those two are level 3000.”

“Huh? Are the two of them just as strong as me?”

Wow, the world is a very small place. I never thought I’d find such strong people in a place like this.

Well, that doesn’t matter now. I must focus on getting information out of the fake Manyu Brigade.

But when I turn to look at them…

“What the- Where are they?!”

“Huh?! But they were just here a minute ago.”

“They just ran off like their lives depended on it.”

“Kyui.”

Those little…!
