The Dungeon Seeker – Volume 4 Chapter 5 Part 4

Chapter 5 – Honeymoon ▼ ▼ ▼ ▼ ▼ ▼ (Part 4)

 

 

 

 

 

ーーin a lake that is very near to the ancient forest that is the dragon’s sleeping place, an easy going Kansai-ben echoed.

 

「You guys, aren’t you quite calm?」

 

A golden dragon and a red-haired girl sitting in its back.

The girl she tilted her head to the host-like guyーーHarada.

 

「Calm? What do you mean?」

「You guys, if I’m correct, you had a huge fight very long ago, and currently healing from the damage from that right?」

 

“Yes”, the girl nodded.

 

「And so, since you’re currently healing, it means that you’re still injured right?」

「Exactly」

 

Harada shrugged his shoulder and made a wry smile.

 

「But, if I’m correct, you can’t use the true powers of the Dragon Emperor if you aren’t together, I mean, combined? You’re currently allied temporarily to protect yourselves from the other dragon species……that’s why you’re hiding in this remote place」

 

Once again, the girl shook her head vertically.

 

「Yes, that is exactly true」

「If so, why aren’t you becoming one? By the way, I have the experience of killing tens of dragons within the labyrinth. If you won’t use the power of the Dragon Emperor, isn’t it a little difficult?」

「Do we, really need to start killing each other?」

 

Harada answered the girl’s question with a shrug of his shoulder.

 

「That’s our leader’s intention after all」

「I am asking you yourself」

「I’m also interested in you guys you know? You seem like opponents that would make me level up a lot after a long time……」

「Do we really, need……to start to kill each other?」

「We really need to fight no matter what. Well, in the first place, you guys are……captives of the prison of time, and VIPs in a sense for clearing the dungeon, but you’re also guys who don’t have that many desires, you didn’t even reach the deepest floors before you came out……」

 

The red-haired girl who heard that made a face of sadness.

 

「No, that is wrong」

「Wrong? What?」

「We are not captives of the prison of time」

「……what does this mean?」

「We have chosen to accept things as they are and exist as there is. We controlled the prison of time by assimilating to nature. Well……though I think that it’s something that you who have chosen to continue wandering in the labyrinth even taking time eternal cannot understand. Howeverーーthe path that we have chosen, it is something that you guys can also choose」

 

Harada raised both his hands to show a surrender pose after thinking about something for a while.

 

「Is that something like Zen or something? Too bad but, I don’t want something like that……sorry, Ojou-chan? I’ll say no thank you to those sermons or preach and the kind」

 

And then, the golden dragon who has been quiet up until now opened its mouth.

 

「More words are useless……Balfnaught」

「……it seems so」

 

The red-haired girl jumped off the back of the golden dragon.

The dragon asked the girl after seeing her land with light steps.

 

「Balfnaught?」

「……I’ll go this time」

 

Harada made a wry smile to how the situation went while seemingly amazed.

 

「After not-want-to-fight disease……it’s not-want-to-combine disease huh」

 

“Yareyare”, Harada continued his words.

 

「Haha!……however, you’re really looking down on me huh. This Ojou-chan who’s not even a dragon’s my opponent? For my sake too, it’s better if I kill you in your Dragon Emperor state because I’ll level up much more, so here’s a friendly advice, hurry up and combine with that dragon」

 

And then, the red-haired girl also shrugged her shoulders not losing to Harada.

 

「……that is not needed」

「n? What does that mean?」

 

The red-haired girl distorts her face with a blatant unpleasant expression.  

Furthermore, fury dwelled in the red eyes of the girl.

 

「……Human. Do not look down on dragons too much」

「What a hot gaze……is that some kind of skill? Small fries like Cerberus would get burned just by that……」

 

Harada did not stop smiling and said with a tone of joking around.

 

 

 

 

「Too bad〜!【Physical Attack Reflection】!!」

 

A blue flame ran on the girl’s skin.

She made a slightly surprised expression and snapped her finger.

The blue flame was immediately erased, and burnt smell started to rise from her red hair.

 

「Haha!! You look surprised? That should be so, my skillーーit’s a high class even within the Extreme Skills, cheat within the cheats! It’s the【Physical Attack Reflection】skill!」

「I see. He has an excellent brain」

「I’ve had a hard time until I met with this body after all……there’s so, so many times that the brain won’t adapt」

 

And then, the red-haired girl sent gazes to Harada as if she was looking at a pitiful thing.

 

「Until you met with that body……huh. I see, it looks like you are connecting your life using quite a wicked way」

「You understood with that explanation just now?」

 

The red haired girl nodded to Harada’s amazed words.

 

「You have stopped being a human a long time ago. Most probably……by removing your memories and soul from your body……you were able to achieve longevity by continuing to take over another person’s body」

「Well, it seems though that there are many ways to live very long. It’s just that this way feels the best for me. That’s why, I would get old and die as well」

 

“However……”, the red-haired girl let out a sigh.

「【Physical Attack Reflection】. Oh really……you are dexterous for a human」

「Flame Dragon Emperor Balfnaught was it? The heat’s physical law governance that you’re good at, it is within the physics calculation range that my reflection can cover. That’s whyーー」

 

Harada continued while he raised his middle finger.

 

「The two of you, hurry up and come at me!」

 

The golden dragon asked the red-haired girl.

 

「What do you think? Balfnaught? According to that man……it looks like the situation is bad, but……you want me to help?」

 

And there, “Fu!”, the girl laughed and said.

 

「Charlings? Are you seriously saying that?」

 

The dragon and the girl laughed out loud at the same time.

 

「Haha!……hahaha!! With that level of physical law governance, he said……haha! Hahahaha!」

「Kuha!……kuhahaha!! This is ridiculous!! What nonsense!!」

「Haha!……ufufu……it’s been a while since I laughed this much. Hey, Charlings?」

「What」

「I’ll erase this thing that does not know its position」

「Kufu! Kufufu!……well, you should do what you want」

 

The red-haired girl kneeled with one leg.

The distance between the girl and Harada is about 7 meters.

Furthermore, the girl placed both her hands on the ground and made a crouching start pose.

 

「Oh? Are you going to start track and field or something?」

 

Andーーthe next instant.

The red haired girl’s appearance, no, her existence itself, Harada felt as if it blurred for an instant.

The girl had disappeared when he noticed it.

“What……?”, but the moment Harada thought of that, he heard knuckle cracking sounds from behind.

The next instant, Harada slowly looked back with cold sweat.

In there, at about 10 meters behind Harada, the red-haired girl was cracking her knuckles.

 

「Haha……although I’m like this, I’m in the group that captures the labyrinth at the deepest floors though……to think that you’d move at super high speed without leaving a shadow behind……」

「He〜. I’m surprised」

「Surprised?」

「To think that you could assert that what that thing right now was not teleportation……but just a super high-speed movement. I change your evaluation just a little higher」

 

Harada got silent for a while.

 

「…………aren’t you looking down too much on me? That made me pissed off a little」

 

The red-haired girl did not wait for Harada’s words and started to move around him at a 10-meter distance with him as the center.

It was not simply circling him, but she was walking in zigzag and appears at points within the circle.

More accurately, tens or hundreds of red-haired girls appeared within the 10-meter radius as if she used a multiple clone skill.

Those were the afterimage that super, super high-speed movements made possible.

Harada honestly raised a voice of amazement.

 

「This’s amazing……it’s completely using brute force. With speed and agility that even I can’t capture, this afterimagesーーit’s an excellent physics calculation laws intervention. I mean, the concept of status and skill……you completely left it somewhere」

「The concept of status huh」

 

A grin showed in all of the girl’s afterimages.

 

「Status is important. Even if you’re intervening in the physical laws, the original status will have some effects. Howeverーーjust like your words that describe it as leaving the concept of status and skill somewhere, and because you are still relying on something like that……you are third-class」

 

“PachiPachi”, Harada started to clap.

 

「There’s some truth with those words. What an excellent physics laws intervention」

 

All of her who have appeared within the circle rushed to Harada who is in the center at once.

And, all of them swung their fist.

What their aim, it is Harada’s head and face.

 

「But, even so, you can never win me with that」

 

In an instant, all of the afterimages gathered in one image.

And without stopping, the killing fist was thrown to Harada’s nose.

 

「ーーthat’s as long as I have this【Physical Attack Reflection】!!」

 

After an instant, Balfnaught’s nose got crushed.

*Mishiri*, an unpleasant sound.

Fresh blood scattered. The blood danced in the air. Blood cosmetics was put on her beautiful face.

However, Balfnaught did not stop.

Her red hair disheveled but her fists were still being thrown towards Harada.

 

「【Physical Attack Reflection】!」

 

Balfnaught’s cheek got crushed.

*Gushari*, a dull sound.

Fresh blood danced again. Blood scattered.

But still, Balfnaught did not stop.

Her hair swayed like a lion dance and released a strong fist to Harada without changing her expression.

What she aimed was Harada’s eye.

 

「【Physical Attack Reflection】!」

 

Balfnaught’s right eye got crushed.

*Pachin*, a light sound.

Serum mixed liquid fell and scattered.

Regardless, Balfnaught would not stop.

She swayed her red-hair like a lion dance and repeatedly attacked Harada without changing her expression.

 

「【Physical Attack Reflection】!!」

 

Sticky liquid gushed out of Balfnaught’s right ear.

 

「【Physical Attack Reflection】!!」

 

Balfnaught’s throat got smashed.

 

「【Physical Attack Reflection】!!」

 

Balfnaught’s clavicle got crushed.

 

「【Physical Attack Reflection】!!」  

 

Balfnaught’s ribs got crushed.

 

「【Physical Attack Reflection】!!」   

 

Even so, she still continued to attack.

 

「【Physical Attack Reflection】!!」    

 

Right straight.

 

「【Physical Attack Reflection】!!」    

 

Left hook.

 

「【Physical Attack Reflection】!!」     

 

Right upper.

 

「【Physical Attack Reflection】!!」    

 

Standing lock.

 

「【Physical Attack Reflection】!!」

 

Left hook.

 

「【Physical Attack Reflection】!!」  

 

 

And there, Balfnaught stopped.

Her throat smashed and her bones here and there crushed.

Her broken rib pierced her lung and she cannot breathe properly.

She cannot get enough oxygen supply.

Both of her eyes broken and her whole body full of blood. A state that it is strange that she is still alive.

Harada laughed enjoying from the bottom of his heart.

 

「Haha! Hahaha! You were saying big words, but you aren’t that much huh? I still have no damage, but Jou-chan’s pretty much splattered……haha! Hahaha! My skill was the one overwhelming after all!」

  1. chaosezel says:

    Wow, another quick chappy for me today, thanks a bunch!

  2. caudyr says:

    And now she will show him exactly why he’s third rate.

    …Did he honestly think she was doing that for no reason thinking just that speed alone was enough to overtake him?

    This dude’s an idiot…I hope. XD

  3. Thanks for the chapter. Can’t wait for the next chapter. Can never tell what’s going to happen with this novel.

  4. Taylor Allen says:

    -_- welp, already see the victor and its definitely not Harada, overconfidence in a simple cheat is the most deadliest mistake.

  5. So I guess that junpei is gonna get that skill after the dude dies Jesus Christ that Junpei is gonna get so strong and worse thing yet. He said that he will conquer all the trash in the world which man think about that he is gonna get a skills from that and not counting the ton of points once his Job level changes and that will bump him up to a different dimension think about it his attack is already powerful but after this it will be impossible to stop him. jeez defense as well this world is gonna be changed for the better thank god he is good.

    I mean let us assume that after the revenge he gets more skills that are of course extreme class this would be a huge help for the bosses in the dungeon, led alone the people in this world. Junpei said that he was interested in killing the demon king and remember the insane god said that was equivalent to a boss in a dungeon like the Cerberus which he would still get a level up. Granted the demon king would not give him a ton of levels like the cereberus but at the very least 2 or 3 it is a boss and plus its not like he is gonna fight it head on like others
    Junpei can thanks to those attack skills but i doubt he will because his way of fighting is better and more suited to entertaining the insane god.

    One thing i want out of this series is after the exam and of course the revenge i want Junpei to conquer the world i know he has a 6 month period or a year but again the guy has the ability to do it alone and he would make the world better he hated how elves didnt get equal rights and vice versa cause elves hated humans (for good reason) but again I want him to change the world for the better imagine the entertainment this would be so good one man changing the world from this to a better one. And best way to get noticed by the world is simple take down the demon king than lead a army of those who follow him against those humans who choose to be the dominant species. Also it is not like the elves would say no he would just have to force them a bit BUT for good reason. Everyone gets equal rights by the end the only people to worry about are S rank adventures but those dont hold a candle to junpei he just has to make them join his ranks. All of this can be done with his power

    Shit plus the slimes jesus christ this world is fucked obey king junpei

    PS
    So can someone tell me what trash box extreme skill can do? Explain cause i am confused of its power

    • Paichun says:

      Trash Box allows Junpei to throw away skill cards.

      • Yeah i get that part. But i dont get it like what does it do? Does it give stronger skills in exchange for the weak skills or is it a inventory for skills that he throws away. that is what i dont get please tell me cause again confused about that.

      • wshall1902 says:

        There are a lot of things the Trash Box ‘could be’.
        But it was explained in the story as something that lets him remove equiped skills (trashes them) in order to open up a slot for a new skill.
        Says nothing about ‘keeping’ any removed skills.
        Not a storage box.

  6. next step is pain return. or something like that

  7. ohmariowv says:

    Dang, I was hoping to find out if Ami got poisoned by Junpei’s semen or not. Oh well, thanks for the chapter.

  8. smoggythebear says:

    please tell me pain split (from pokemon) is an actual skill.

    Thanks for the chapter 🙂

    • macktheknife123 says:

      I refer to that wobbuffet character that deflect all attacks towards its opponents.

  9. wshall1902 says:

    Ami is probably going to take a huge amount of damage and then use a Reverse Health type of skill, swapping her health and damage with H’s. She’ll be undamaged, and H will be trashed.

  10. Damage Transfer?

  11. macktheknife123 says:

    Thanks for the chapter. The enemy is much stronger then thought.

    • wshall1902 says:

      Remember the God that sent them here? The two that become the Emperor Dragon are as strong or stronger than that. Mentions something about it earlier in the story, I think.

      • macktheknife123 says:

        Your right. But at least they are strong and gives the MC motivation to become stronger.

  12. btw, why not use Magic / AOE attack ? or a Curse, Poison, Disease, or something similar ? or damage magic that deal internal damage? or Drain, Absorb, Consume and Devour related magic ? there are still a lot of ways to deal with him, like maybe Magic that cut the oxigen supply , Sealing magic, Dimension Magic, Death Magic, Soul magic, Time Magic and so on.

    thx for the chapter ^^
