A Harem in the Fantasy World Dungeon Volume 6 Chapter 4 Part 4
Translator: DarkHeartedAlchemist Editor: Weasalopes
Miria looks pretty motivated about it.
「Roxanne, look for a place where Naïve Olives are for us, alright?」
The monster native to the seventh floor of Vale’s Labyrinth is Escape Goat, so there is a possibility that they might also appear on the eighth floor, and if they do, then fighting against them is going to be pretty difficult since they do tend to run away as soon as their HP drops below fifty percent of its total value. That is why I thought that the better idea here would be to go and search for the monsters that were native to the sixth floor, Naïve Olives.
The group that Roxanne managed to find for us consisted of a single Collagen Coral and a single Naïve Olive. Against these monsters, Roxanne and Miria darted forward so that each of them could take care of one opponent, and Sherry slowly followed after them to offer her support. It wasn’t all that long since Miria started fighting together with us, but I could already see that the girls managed to adjust to one another in such a way that they could fight and help each other without the need for me to be giving direct orders to them.
Oh, and I think that it goes without saying, but Roxanne was fighting against the Collagen Coral while Miria took on Naïve Olive. It would be pretty meaningless if it was the other way around, since that’s not what I want to test right now.
Initially, I thought about supporting them from the rear with my Spells, but it became pretty clear that my help won’t be needed against these trash-tier mobs, so I just hanged around in the back waiting for them to be done, only applying 「Plating」 and 「Medical Treatment」 to Miria when it was truly necessary.
「How was it, Miria?」
「She says that it was definitely harder than the battles against the Collagen Corals, but she can fight them no problem.」
「Okay, so it seems like Miria is going to be fine for the time being. However, the question now is: what are we going to do next, or to be even more precise: where are we going to go next? Would it be better if we advanced through the ninth, tenth and eleventh floors in order until we’d naturally come back to the twelfth floor while being wary of the constantly increasing number of attacks required to defeat the enemies on each floor, or do we go back straight to the twelfth floor right now and continue on through it as we did before while keeping Miria safe in the back?」
I was not sure what would be the best course of action myself, so I asked the other three for their opinions on the matter.
It will be much safer for us if we continue to fight the monsters that can be taken out in one or two hits. Not to mention that receiving attacks from them is something that I desire the least. Above all else, since Miria just joined us, I don’t want her to suffer any pain.
However, even if we enter lower floors, we won’t have any kind of guarantee that we’re going to be one hundred percent safe, and if Miria were to receive a mortal wound during this experiment and died because of it, the I’d never be able to forgive myself for what my short-sightedness has caused.
Now, let’s say that we decide to take a gamble and move onto the twelfth floor. Since this is a Labyrinth, then even if Miria stayed in the rear the entire time, she wouldn’t be entirely safe, since there is always a possibility that she might get hit by a stray long-distance Skill or Spells coming our way, but on the flipside, if she gets to observe us fighting on the twelfth floor some more, then she’s definitely going to grow up and learn as a fighter much faster
「In my opinion, we should go and advance through the floors in order, and as for the possibility of receiving attacks, we should not be paying too much mind to it, since here in the Labyrinths getting attacked is something obvious and expected and the risk is always going to be here no matter the precautions we’re going to take to avoid them.」
Roxanne gives her opinion while explaining the advantages and disadvantages of the approaches that I’ve proposed. Well, to someone like Roxanne, taking damage from enemies really might not be such a big deal, since she’ll just avoid all of it altogether, but the rest of us cannot do it, and so we always need to be careful.
「Advancing through the floors in order does indeed seem to be a better option as far as our safety is concerned, even more so since we’re not doing any of this so that we could receive the attacks from the enemies on purpose.」
Sherry’s judgement is as rational as ever.
It will be nice if Miria was as rational as her as well, so that we could take things easy for a little bit more.
「X X X X X X X X X X X X X X X X X X X X X X X X.」
「X X X X X X X X X X X X X X X X X X.」
「Miria says: 「I agree with what Big Sister said. We should do as she says.」」
Are you sure that this is your own opinion and not something that Roxanne forced you to say, Miria? Oh well, if she says that she’s fine with it, then she really must be fine with it, so that’s what we’re going to be doing.
And just like that, after having a majority of us vote in favor of going through the Labyrinth floors one by one, we decided to trek through all of them in order.
We move to the ninth floor of Quratar’s labyrinth and then proceed to its tenth floor. Along the way, we take out all of the monsters that happened upon us, but we always make sure to leave at least one of them for Miria to finish off, but whenever she was receiving too many hits and was taking damage, I would jump in and finish the job myself to not place her in too much danger. After all, she already acquired Swordsman and Monk Jobs, so there’s no need for her to be overdoing things by herself.
「Are you okay?」
「Yes, I’m okay, desu.」
Miria answers when I ask her about her condition while casting another 「Medical Treatment」 on her.
She seems to have learned how to speak the word 「okay」 in Brahim, which means that she took yet another small step towards learning how to speak it properly. Also, through the process of observing her in battle, I learned that she could handle fighting against the monsters up to Spi Spiders Lv.11
「The monsters inhabiting the twelfth floor will be even more difficult than the ones here. Do you still want us to proceed further?」
「X X X X X X X X X X X X X X X X X X.」
When Roxanne translates, Miria replies with a determined expression.
I’m glad to see that Miria seems to be brave person by nature. Being brave is a necessary trait to have if you want to keep going to the Labyrinths and fight in them, but I wonder if it’s a natural thing for people to be so in a world filled with Labyrinths such as this one, or is it something that is still person-to-person dependent?
No, I think it’s actually the exact opposite: it’s the brave people of this world who chose to fight in the Labyrinths while the rest of them stay in the comforts of their houses, perfectly content with not contributing anything to the cause.
Had I chosen to buy a beautiful female slave instead of Miria, I think it might’ve been the same with me, and there is also a possibility that Miria is saying so superficially because she’s our Party Member and doesn’t want to be the one dragging us down.
「Well then, we’ll now move on to 12th floor of Haruba’s Labyrinth. You will not actively take part in fighting, Miria. For the time being, just stay behind me and observe to try and get a hang of it some more. If you can, you can try to poke the enemies with your spear from the distance if you find an opportunity. Anyway, you will be in the rear while Sherry will take your place in the front for the time being.」
