The End Of The Monster Stampede
“So that guy was not even a monster.
It was just another creature.”
I guess that’s the most natural way to think of it.
And by the way, Tagaya merged with it Did it absorb him But it was not a person.
“If that’s the case, it hurts that I couldn’t get Tagaya to talk.
But if I hadn’t done that, I might have died.”
First of all, without a doubt, Tagaya was responsible for the monster stampede and the boss’s mutation this time.
I felt like he was suddenly yelling at me in a place where no one was around, but I’m maybe right.
Then there was that [Wrath] and the skill he was shouting.
I’m curious about that one too.
Damn, it hurts too much that I couldn’t secure Tagaya.
“Anyway, I’ve got the evidence of its defeat now.
I don’t think I’ll have the answers, and it would be best to have the association look into it.”
But I can’t bring back the bodies of these wiped-out party members.
By the time I’m back on the ground and report it, the bodies will have been absorbed into the dungeon and will be equipment and stuff.
That’s the inconvenient thing about [Item Box].
At times like this, I’d like to be able to retrieve people’s corpses and stuff.
But thanks to that, people couldn’t put a corpse in the [Item Box] after killing someone and then have it go missing, so the world doesn’t work well.
For the time being, I don’t have that many black bags, and I can’t bring them in with me, so I’m sorry I couldn’t take them home.
When I got out of the dungeon and returned to the ground, they already sealed the dungeon’s entrance.
As if the monster stampede had already ended.
A research team from the association or a company would have come to investigate the impact of the dungeon stampede, but I didn’t have time for that.
I’ve got to give the association some of the pieces of meat, fangs, and Tagaya inside my [Item Box].
“Well, let’s hear what you have to say.”
After making the members of the association scream.
The two caught explorers cooperated with Tagaya wrapped in a rope in front of me.
The man who caught them with a rope was a man from the association who was still talking to them.
Nearby is another woman from the association.
This rope is a specially made rope made by [Create Magic Tool], and it’s very sturdy.
It doesn’t seem to be chains or handcuffs because of their appearance and explorers’ skills, but they’re wrapped in a rope.
Well, that’s fine.
“Let me tell you something, lies don’t work, okay We already know that you were cooperating with Tagaya.”
“We already know that Tagaya’s collaborators have been rewriting information in the Explorers’ Association database.
You can’t fool us now, can you”
The two men dispatched by the association wear badges on their chests that look like a red snake pierced by a sword.
I don’t recognize that badge, but since they say that lying doesn’t work, are they taking a skill that I forget its name, but that detects lies
“No talking, huh Then I’m sorry, brother.
Let’s talk to the other brother first, okay”
The man sighed, turned to me, and said so when they didn’t respond.
I nodded silently.
I have many questions I want to ask them, but for now, my priority is to get him to confirm the facts.
Then, as the man urged me on, I began to tell him what I knew about Tagaya’s collaborators.
I’m here, but Rin and the other three are not here because they’re students, got caught up in my situation, and are probably tired.
I wonder if I can’t do it later
At any rate, I re-explained the circumstances in the boss’s room and they trusted me because I hadn’t lied to them.
It was also significant that everyone here believed my story since people already knew those two had cooperated with and were betrayed by Tagaya.
And just as I finish speaking, the man opens his mouth.
“…… I see.
So, did you find out why the boss was mutating”
Tagaya was also using something that looked like a skill called Wrath, but I don’t even know what that was.”
“Wrath…… Wrath huh I don’t even know what that is.
I’ve never heard of it.”
“I don’t know either.
But according to your story, he was shouting something before he used that skill, wasn’t he
If I’m not mistaken, [I’ll give you everything, so give it to me.] Was it ”
At my words, everyone fell silent and thought on the spot.
People in the association have been involved with the dungeon for much longer than I had.
Even they didn’t know about it.
There was no way I could know it.
That’s the end of my story.
There’s nothing more I can do, and I’m done sooner than I thought I’d be.
Now all I have to do is ask what happened to those two.
“Well, …… what happens to them now”
“Hmmm……… I guess so.
They’re still in custody, but the police will probably be here soon.
Then we’ll hand them over.”
If they catch those guys, they’ll probably find out about the other crimes they’ve been doing.
And from the looks of it, they didn’t do that only to me.
Maybe the high death rate Yua mentioned has something to do with it.
No, it’s not me who thinks about it.
If those people go and ask them, they’ll know right away.
And this is where I said goodbye to the people from the association.
I’m sure the association staff is busy.
They started rushing around after they finished listening to me.
Well, I have to talk to Rin and the others later and apologize for getting them involved.
Well, for now, I think I’ll take a good rest today.
Thinking like that, I was heading home.
“Oh What’s wrong ”
“The connection to the terminal got disconnected.
Damn it! Well, that’s okay.
I’m sure you’ll find it again soon.”
“Oh, how I envy you.
You’re so lucky you can find the device so easily.
I can’t find mine at all.”
The woman said and smiled at the man in front of her.
The man snickered at the woman’s smile, opened the door, and walked out.
I want my terminal as soon as possible.”
Saying that the woman also left the room.
After that, the room was empty.
