“Yes, tell me!”
“Please reject it.”
It was a proposal and an answer faster than the speed of light. His manner was fearless with a smile on his face.
Lisianthus’ face, who proposed to reject it, brightened even more, while Caladium had a ‘Hmpph!’ face and smirked. He never imagined that his opinion would be rejected in one second.
“Why? It’s cool!”
“Uhh. It’s not cool at all.”
“What? Your eyes must be so ignorant! Hey, bones! What do you think?”
Surprised by the sudden shout, the Skeletons shook their bones. One even collapsed. Thud! Thud! The sound of bones falling to the floor echoed in succession.
“Caladium! Why are you intimidating your dungeon mates? How mean!”
Adelaide put her hands on her waist and scolded him. She was a woman who opened her knife-like eyes and was stern, unlike the way she always flirted.
“No, when did I…..”
Caladium felt wronged.
I was just asking for opinions! Why did you get scared and collapse? He didn’t know if he ever said anything scary to the bones, but they just met for the first time yesterday so when would he have the chance?
He tried to protest some more, but soon gave up and bowed his head sullenly. If he did that, it seemed like he would only look hateful to Adelaide.
“Come on, next. Anything? Then I’ll suggest one. A little stylish and noble…”
Adelaide paused for a moment.
“How about ‘Dungeon de Adelaide’?”
It’s fashionable to name something like this these days. Adelaide smiled and added. And Caladium, who had decided to just show her hate rather than overcoming his absurd attitude, replied straight away.
It was him with a very refreshing smile. It was not his personality to put up with anything either.
Adelaide protested with a look of incomprehension.
“What?! Why! It’s cool!”
“Uh, it’s not cool at all.”
“Don’t copy me! And you probably don’t have eyes! Lisian, Skeletons, how about you?”
“Adela, don’t intimidate your dungeon mates!”
“When did I…!”
Adelaide was huffing and Caladium giggled. Skeleton chewed snacks and watched them talk. The cookie powder that went through the skull’s mouth dropped wildly on the floor.
Poor Lisianthus intervened.
“Master, I don’t think we’ll make a decision today, so why don’t you postpone changing the name a little? It’s more urgent to install the portal.”
“That’s… That’s right.”
Adelaide replied with a sly smile, staring at Caladium, who was looking at her. She wanted to change the name of the dungeon first and call in the adventurers, but it wasn’t going to happen because of that devil child.
Then she suddenly realized a strange feeling.
If it was the usual Lisianthus, he would have persuaded her to ignore the opinions of the demons under her and do what she wanted, but why didn’t he do that? Maybe Lisian… Is ‘Dungeon de Adelaide’ bad? So he’s asking to put it off so it can’t be changed to that?
Lisianthus’ face, which she glanced at, was still the same. A beautiful, handsome and friendly face. There was no way he could have devised such a heinous scheme with that face.
Adelaide, having made that decision, nodded her head a couple of times and let out a short sigh.
“I don’t think I’ll be able to come to a conclusion today due to someone’s interference, so I’ll postpone the naming of the dungeon until later.”
Referring to ‘someone’, she glanced at Caladium at once. Caladium shrugged his shoulders sarcastically.
Adelaide struggled to suppress her desire to pluck that unlucky red hair.
“Lisian, buy a portal installation magic stone!”
“Yes. Here it is.”
“Already? It’s good to be able to buy magic stones right away since it’s level E!”
Adelaide briefly admired and accepted the magic stone that Lisianthus had given her. It was worth 5 Almas, so the shiny thing looked different.
[Installing the portal. Please specify a location.]
Soon a familiar mechanical sound rang out. Adelaide raised her voice and said.
“Mediar, the border of the Demon Realm!”
[Mediar, the border of the Demon Realm. Entered. The detailed location is adjusted according to the dungeon class. Do you want to proceed like this?]
[A magic stone has been used. A long-distance portal to Mediar has been installed at the end of the dungeon.]
Adelaide ran as soon as the mechanical sound was over. When she ran to the end of the dungeon using the internal portal, she saw what she was looking for. It was a portal shining brightly with blue light.
‘Soon, the adventurers will come through here… !’
Her heart was pounding with anticipation. With Caladium by her side, she had nothing to fear. Because even a few adventurers will not be able to face the devil.
However, the subsequent mechanical sound poured cold water on her expectations.
[The portal is being installed. It will take ‘3 days’ to complete.]
3 days! She trembled because there was not enough time, if it was her in the past she could have waited long enough, but now Adelaide was in a hurry.
It was dangerous to fast on an ‘Empty Stomach’ that long. Pain is also pain, and she might lose your mind.
Adelaide’s face quickly turned white. Lisianthus saw this and took a step closer.
“Master. What’s going on?”
“Are you anemic again?!”
“Let me see!” Caladium grabbed her face and looked closely. Lisianthus quickly knocked off the rude hand.
“Lisian, does it usually take three days?”
“The long-distance portal for the entry of adventurers takes a little longer to install. For an extra 1 Alma you get a quick install, but… I would not recommend it.”
‘The Demon King and his schemes!’ Adelaide cursed the Demon King inside. Lisianthus looked her in the eye and spoke to her.
“I think it is because moving a lot of numbers at once is tricky magic… Only a few can move. It’s not often that we have a small group of adventurers, but once it’s properly installed, they will come.”
Judging that she was disappointed that she could not do so, he advised as kindly as possible. Then Adelaide’s face gradually began to glow.
“Well then, can I use it right now?”
“Yes. It can carry up to two or three people.”
“Wow! I see! Thanks, Lisian! Thank you!”
Adelaide roared with a bright smile. Lisianthus and Caladium exchanged curious glances.
And after that.
Adelaide started disappearing every night. She even secretly erased her traces, without the knowledge of other demons.
Of course, ‘the other demons not finding out’ was just a wish.
If you have a long tail, it will be stepped on.
Mediar Region, the border of the Demon Realm, the Human Area.
It is the place where many adventurers enter the Demon Realm, and there are inns where the adventurers can stay, a repair shop where they can buy and repair equipment, and shops where they can purchase healing potions.
In one of the shabby inn rooms, an adventurer slept and snored. He was stocking up on energy for tomorrow’s dungeon conquest.
A shadow fell over him as he slept. The gentle moonlight poured down on the shadow, it was Adelaide.
Her hair, like a starry night sky, fluttered in the wind, revealing her beautiful face. Unlike her usual expressionless appearance, she boasted a neat and innocent beauty.
Today was the 3rd day. It was also a fact that she secretly escaped the dungeon at dawn and went to an adventurer.
She chose a different person every day, someone who was weak enough that she would not lose even if they confronted her. She went on to pull out just the right amount of energy so she wouldn’t die.
Since he was a weak warrior, the quality of his energy was not good, and the quantity was small, so she could not get rid of the ‘empty stomach’ right away. Besides, it was cumbersome to have to come out every day.
However, she was more comfortable with this, as she had not yet adjusted to her job properly.
‘You’re sleeping, right?’
Adelaide, who checked the adventurer with an indifferent face, nodded her head slowly. She did this for three days, and she seemed to be getting the hang of it little by little. Although, it was still a long way from getting back to the same sense as before.
As their lips were about to touch, Adelaide realized something was wrong.
She could not feel the unique energy of a sleeping person from the adventurer.
Adelaide’s eyes widened. At the same time, she met the adventurer’s red eyes and gaze.
In an instant, the adventurer threw Adelaide on the bed. Then he climbed on top of her and strangled her with both hands.
“How dare you target this adventurer! Die!”
His grip strength was stronger than expected. But she wasn’t completely out of it. Adelaide frowned and squinted her eyes to examine the situation. She was looking for the most efficient way to get out.
Something completely unexpected came to sight.
There was a man standing in front of a large window in the pouring moonlight. An unrealistically perfect face with anger in his sharp silver-gray eyes that glistened horrifyingly.
“What are you doing?”
At the low-pitched voice, the adventurer hurriedly turned around. But it was already too late. The moment he turned his head, the devil’s hand had already sliced his neck.
Bright red blood spurted like a fountain. The bloodstains soon disappeared along with the dead adventurer’s body.
However, there was still a red thing in Adelaide’s vision. The image of Caladium with red hair like a flame.
“Do you have to work overtime at this hour? I don’t think it’s because of your lazy nature.”
Caladium came one step closer to her lying on the bed muttering in a low-sinking voice. The voice that followed raised strangely.
“If not. Do you like this kind of b*stard?”
He kicked the half-faded adventurer’s head.
