Atelier Tanaka Volume 4 Chapter 6 part6
The next day, I travelled to the dungeon with a large group of the escaped prisoners. The ruins they mentioned yesterday were located near the bottom of the crater where Drill-chan’s castle once stood. It didn’t take long for us to reach the entrance as we used flight magic to quickly reach it. The bottom of the crater was nearly pitch black, but in this seemingly endless nothingness was a strange cavity along the wall. This cavity was dimly lit and I could make out what appeared to be a paved road made out of something similar to bricks.
This pathway led into another hole that ran perpendicular to the large crater created by the loligon’s magic. There have been no other passages found within the crater and this is the only known entrance to the recently discovered ruins.
Not that it matters whether or not this is the only entrance. The only thing I’m concerned with right now is earning money as quickly as possible. These newly discovered ruins may be interesting, but I have more pressing concerns. I’ll lead my party of criminals into the dungeon and defeat everything inside.
I shot a Fireball down the dark passage before anything could get the chance to ambush us.
It was about the size of a volleyball and quickly made contact with a monster that was hiding in the shadows. The monster was enveloped in flames and let out a brief scream before crumpling to the ground.
The fire continued to burn for a short time while we waited to see if there were any other creatures in the passage. Once the fallen monster was nothing more than a smoldering corpse and there was no sign of any other creatures, I felt that it should be safe enough for us to continue.
I turned around to tell the others this.
“It looks like that was the only one.”
“Thank you. We didn’t even notice it was there. But for you to be able to kill a gargoyle with a Fireball….”
I was praised for taking the initiative.
Receiving a compliment from the slutty witch feels good.
I want to finish inside of her while burying my face in her massive chest.
“You said that was a gargoyle?”
“Yes, they’ve been a difficult challenge so far due to their high magic resistance.”
The level of the monsters in this dungeon are said to be close to a High Orc. There are some that are stronger and some that are weaker, but the average is around that level. When I first arrived in the Penny Empire, I would have struggled to survive here, but the person I was can’t even compare to the person I’ve become.
I’ve already defeated it but I might as well take this opportunity to learn more about it.
After confirming the creature was dead, my party of criminals was ready to advance further into the passage.
One of the criminals crouched down to collect a piece of the gargoyle as proof of its defeat and continued on. Apparently their ears are required as proof to earn the reward. The criminal took out a long knife and cut off the creatures ear before storing it in a leather pouch.
“All right, on to the next one.”
The criminal said this after finishing their work. In response, the witch issued the command to continue onward.
“Let’s keep going.”
We repeated these actions several times as we progressed through the tunnel.
Honestly, I was enjoying it. We progressed fairly quickly as we already had a map of the ruins. It was like entering a dungeon in a video game equipped with a strategy guide. I used a floating Fireball as a light source, so even the foreboding feeling one would get from a dark dungeon was nowhere to be found.
The variety in the monsters we encountered also helped to hold off the boredom. There was an interesting lineup of Gargoyles, Ropers, and slimes.
Still, the real problem now is that the slutty witch has yet to go pee anywhere. Oh Great Witch, bless this dry dungeon with the oasis between your thighs.
That Great Thief, on the other hand, has peed twice. He must have a small bladder.
“The rate at which we’re progressing can’t even be compared to yesterday.”
As we made our way down the passage, the witch muttered this.
“Is that so?”
“It took us much longer to defeat a single one of these creatures.”
“So that’s what you meant.’
If they’re trying to be safe, I think that method is the best.
This passage is rather small, being only about four metres wide and the ceiling being not much taller than myself. This makes it hard for the monsters to dodge my attacks, but in the unlikely event that one does, they would have a straight shot at landing an attack on me. Which means the easiest thing to do is just kill them all instantly.
That being said, it’s probably for the best that I partied up with them. I know they said they’ve been down here before, but it is a dangerous place to fight for a normal party.
“If we keep going like this you’ll be able to earn the gold you need in no time.”
“You think so?”
“The monsters in these ruins are powerful and the rewards offered for the subjugation are high. These ruins have only recently been discovered but word has already spread to nearby towns about the rewards being offered for clearing them. This is the best opportunity to earn gold while the stronger adventurers that are confident in their abilities have yet to reach this city.”
“So that’s how it is. Then, it may be best to pick up the pace even more.”
“That’s right, but you must be careful not to overexert yourself. Doing so will only lead to a quicker death.’
That’s some surprisingly good news.
Obtaining my blonde loli slave sisters no longer feels like a distant dream. Knowing this, a new wave of motivation surged through me. Oman said he would remain in Dragon City for a little while so I should be fine on time.
We continued on through the cramped passage while the slutty witch and I made small talk.
After a few minutes of uneventful walking, a light appeared not far ahead of us, and as we continued progressing, the walls began to widen on either side of us. This was the first chamber we had seen since entering the passage.
“It looks like there’s a room ahead.”
One of the criminals holding the map acted as our navigator and pointed out exactly what I expected.
I’m not sure what the source of the light is, but it’s possible there’s another party exploring down here.
It could be dangerous if we catch them off guard. As I was worrying about this, I heard a strange voice I wasn’t expecting to hear in a place like this.
“Nn~, aa~ aa~h!”
Someone’s moaning. Someone is definitely moaning!
That’s the distinctive voice of a woman moaning in pleasure.
“…what could that be?” [Hard]
“I wonder what indeed.”[Witch]
The witch and the Great Thief exchanged looks.
“How am I supposed to know. The obvious thing to do is go and take a look.”
This seemed like a good idea to me, but the witch had something else to say.
“Don’t you just wish to see if this woman is naked?”
“Shut up! S-Some of us aren’t as used to that as you!”
“Spoken like a true virgin.”
Seriously? This ikemen thief?
Women must be dying to marry someone like him.
“There’s no point discussing this here when we don’t even know what’s happening ahead. If someone is getting attacked then we shouldn’t be wasting any time. In a place like this, it’s possible that they’re being attacked by a monster or maybe even something else.”
Deep in the dungeon where there are very few witnesses. The perfect place to gangbang girls. Some normal sex would be nice too, but there’s something exciting about gangbangs. It’s the same with tentacle rape or torturing a girl with a vibrator while she’s in public.
After all, human beings all have one thing in common and that is, of course, the spirit of Eros!
“Yes, we should hurry.”
The slutty witch agreed.
Everyone ran full speed towards the moaning. It wasn’t far away, maybe a couple dozen meters, but we had to be careful and watch out for traps.
We quickly made it to the end of the hall before turning a corner and seeing…. Nice.
We spotted the source of the moaning. A woman with a lewd expression on her face was on the ground.
Numerous tentacles were wrapped around the woman’s body. I followed the tentacle back to its source where I saw a rock-like creature with one massive eyeball. This creature moved slowly across the room as its tentacles held the woman in place. When we entered the room, it’s single eye focused on us.
The woman had been stripped half-naked and the tentacles were doing lewd things to her.
If you were to ask me whether or not the girl is out or safe, I’d have to say she’s out. It’s definitely inside.
And it’s a woman that I’m familiar with.
It’s Mercedes-chan’s meat toilet.
“You can’t use your Fireball without harming the girl. We’ll handle this. I’m sorry Tanaka-san, but if you can please stand guard and watch for other enemies.”
“Oh, of course.”
The witch gave me instructions while I was fixated on the assault of the meat toilet. I guess my time to enjoy this scene is up. I would’ve liked to watch it for an hour or so.
The party of criminals acted fast.
Due to their extraordinary teamwork, the Roper quickly had to abandon his assault on the girl and focus his attention on the criminals. I took this opportunity to rush in and grab onto the girl under the guise of trying to rescue her. She was convulsing and breathing heavily, but she seemed okay otherwise.
“You’re safe now.”
“Ah, I…I want more….”
Through her wet eyes, she stared lustfully at the Roper’s tentacles.
Don’t worry, I know how you feel.
Unfortunately, I can’t do anything about it.
Due to society’s morals and ethics, we both were forced to abandon this solitary happiness we found deep within the depths of the dungeon.
I could see the despair in the meat toilet’s eyes as her fully-automatic, multi-pronged vibrator collapsed to the ground with a desperate cry.
