The Smell of Treasure
Carolina’s support was successful.
Our exploration of the mine continued to go well.
The appearance of Mud Puppets increased as we continued to the center.
This was a place where normal adventurers would give up, but I had the one-hit Capsule Ball skill.
In particular, the Mud Puppets were essential for making Golems, so I was capturing them all without leaving even one behind.
When we had walked for a little while, Sheryl called out excitedly.
“Hm. What is it, so suddenly?”
“Inside this wall is the smell of precious orez!”
“Furthermore, many of them! It’s the first time I too have seen a place with such an abundance of orez!”
Has the time come for my dream to be fulfilled!?
I never thought that we would get results so quickly!
“Fufufu. It seems my turn has come! Watch closely my mining technique!”
The one who jumped at this moment faster than anyone else was Aphrodite.
Aphrodite took the pickaxe in hand and took a big swing at the wall.
A sharp metallic sound echoed in the cavern.
Even though she hit it with all her might, there wasn’t even a scratch on the wall.
“Gyaaaaaaaa! My hand…my hand is nuuuuuumb!?”
Having received an unexpected recoil, Aphrodite was writhing on the ground and her hand was inflamed and swollen.
“Master. It seems that this area…has become exceptionally hard. I believe it would be ill-advised to dig with something like a pickaxe.”
Carolina announced while placing her hand on the wall Aphrodite had attacked.
It’s natural when you think about it.
To say it another way, the ores that hadn’t been mined by adventurers up until now were protected by this unique region that was unyielding to a pickaxe.
“What should we do? I think my magic can damage it sufficiently.”
“No. That’s not necessary. I’ll use this guy for this mining operation.”
I had a monster prepared just for this kind of manual labor.
“…The Golem? As expected of Master. Certainly, if it’s this monster, it can probably break through the wall.”
Its total height was about 10 meters.[i]
That body was so huge it seemed as if it would go into the ceiling.
(Golem! Face this wall and punch!)
At my command, the Golem very slowly raised its arm overhead.
The Golem’s punch, which carried its own weight, unmistakably hid the strongest power out of all my monsters.
A thunderous sound resounded throughout the cave.
I was at a loss for words when I looked into the hold the Golem made.
From here on out…we couldn’t help but sense treasure.
Inside wasn’t the rare ores that Sheryl had mentioned—.
There was a hidden staircase that continued deep into the mine.
It’s the release day of “Other World’s Monster Breeder”!!
Kabocha-san’s high-quality illustrations are amazing!
Please take care of me with the published version as well.
