Oukoku e Tsuzuku Michi Chapter 231
The morning sun hits my face and wakes me up.
Not good, the sun is already rising.
When I lift my upper body up from the bed, it makes Leticia and Sharon, who are resting their b.r.e.a.s.t.s and arm respectively on my chest, let out a small moan.
This is Leticia’s shop, which also serves as their residence, that I gave them so they could earn their livelihood.
They let me enjoy a grand feast last night so I paid them back by making them climax more times than they could count with their fingers.
I continued to thrust into Leticia and Sharon even after they pa.s.sed out.
Oops, this isn’t the time to be getting hard again. I’m late.
I kiss the two whose eyes are still half closed before getting up from bed and quickly putting my clothes on.
Leticia wakes up first and stands up unsteadily after her hips were thoroughly overused last night, then tidily adjusts my clothes.
Sorry to bother you while you’re busy and thanks for being so kind to us. Please feel free to drop by and embrace us again whenever you want.
I hug her soft body and suck on her irresistibly juicy lips.
Come on, Sharon. Get up so you can see him off. Laying asleep like that is rude!
U, uun I want to, but my a.s.s got dug too much and I can’t stop ejac- no, I can’t stop squirting.
I made lots of love to Sharon yesterday too.
You’re fine staying there. What a cute girl.
I lower myself to Sharon and steal her lips.
Something rises under the futon but it’s nothing I need to worry about.
I leave the shop after being sent off by the two girls whose flushed faces tell me they’re still thinking about the s.e.x from last night.
There is nothing which makes a man more proud than that.
Sis. I think I really should cut it off after all I can’t think of myself as anything other than Hardlett-sama’s woman now.
Let’s ask for his opinion the next time he comes over. I’m sure he’ll guide you in the right direction.
I don’t know what they’re talking about and I don’t want to ask.
Three Days Later. Lintbloom.
I’m just going to visit the dwarves. You didn’t have to come with me.
I tell that to Celia after arriving at Lintbloom while petting her head.
I didn’t come because of some complicated reason like doing inspections.
I just want to apologize to Balbano for losing my weapon and see if I can ask him to make me another one.
That’s why I wanted to only bring the minimum amount of people with me from the escort squad in Gido, Kroll and Christoph.
Speaking of which, Celia is always by my side so she isn’t included in the count.
Ara, we just so happened to want to check on how the city is doing. If we were going to the same place anyways, why not go together is that no good?
Accompanying us are Claire, Laurie and their followers.
You said it was a coincidence, but it felt like you rushed to follow me when you saw I was setting out on a trip.
You’re imagining things.
All the followers are female not only that, they all have bodies which Aegir-sama prefers.
It’s just your imagination.
Claire and Laurie reply to me and Celia respectively.
I’m happy there are more girls around me but it’s painfully obvious she has some kind of hidden agenda.
Aegir-sama, you can’t be lured by the women and make any strange promises!
Celia glares at Claire as she says that.
On the other hand, the female merchant remains unperturbed and grins back at Celia.
There are things in this world that a human can do nothing about. They can only do their very best and hope they can put up a fight.
The use of seductive techniques is not something that powerful!
Celia climbs on top of Leah, who is resting on top of my lap.
Waah, Celichan, you scared me~
When Celia heard Claire would be joining us, she quickly dragged Leah, who she’s close with, along with her.
I’m not enough to fully occupy Aegir-sama. That would mean Aegir-sama would go embrace the girls provided by that female merchant.
I’ll do my best.
Leah was forcefully taken by Celia, but she doesn’t seem dissatisfied.
She happily clings to my arm and presses her chest against me.
I don’t often get to come along on long trips so I’m happy to be together with you~
I pat the fawning Leah while inspecting her body.
She’s one size shorter than Celia.
Her body is more on the chubby side instead of being muscular because she doesn’t train.
When I fondle her b.r.e.a.s.t.s, I can tell they’re fairly larger than Celia’s.
Perhaps it’s because she’s been eating good food, her b.r.e.a.s.t.s and a.s.s are growing bigger and bigger.
I want you to touch my b.o.o.bs more. It makes me happy when Master touches me~
Her body isn’t the only thing that’s soft, her demeanor is soft too.
In spite of that, she is extremely skilled in bed and I can’t get enough of the insides of her excellent v.a.g.i.n.a, which coils around me like a separate living being.
I’d be happy if you take me around to more places too. I’m usually just left behind on long journeys after all.
Leah, unlike Celia, isn’t used to fighting and isn’t quick on her feet either, so I really don’t want to bring her to any dangerous places.
Goods are frequently transported to and from Lintbloom, plus there are inns and regularly maintained paths along the way, so I thought it would be safe to take her with us.
I’ll do just that if the place we’re going to is safe. Now, let’s not keep Balbano waiting.
It would be nice if you got a new weapon
Celia becomes somewhat gloomy again.
I told you not to worry about that.
I stroke Celia’s head lightly.
Then I quickly remember to stroke Leah’s head right after.
Leah is as tall as Celia was a little while ago and at just the right height for me to pet.
I realize my improper wording after I said it.
Celia slumps down onto her knees.
I guess getting her head pet by me is something quite important to her.
My bad, my bad. I’ll pet you too.
Habubu my head please.
We make our way to where the dwarves live while I squeeze Celia’s face.
Dwarven Residence. Tunnel in the Mountains.
So you lost that spear?
Balbano and I speak to each other one-on-one.
Celia wanted to say something but I don’t like using a woman as an excuse so I left her in the adjacent room.
Balbano is short and stout as usual, at about 160 cm in height, but has a bulging muscular fram and extremely short legs.
His face is decorated with a beard and his limbs are covered in a thick layer of hair.
Yeah, I know you took time and effort to make it for me, but I thought it wouldn’t do any good if I died.
I exchanged it for my life and a woman’s life, and while I might be sorry, I’m not ashamed.
Balbano closes his eyes and chugs some alcohol.
No worries. That was a good weapon, but it’s nothing compared to losing a friend. I’m glad you came back alive.
The bearded man stands up and pulls me in for a firm hug.
I don’t like hugging guys but I’ll put up with it for now.
I still have something left to do. I can’t die just yet.
I want to meet Lucy and embrace her once more.
I gained so much experience in sleeping with women after leaving the forest.
My body and d.i.c.k are much bigger than before.
As I am now, I can probably face her head-on and make her submit with my meat rod.
I would continue to pound Lucy even as she screams she’s at her limit, bite her neck and squeeze her b.r.e.a.s.t.s so hard that it hurts.
Still, she would wrap her voluptuous thighs around my waist while clenching tightly to my shaft.
don’t mind me.
As my delusions go wild, so does my d.i.c.k.
Balbano swiftly steps back from me.
It’s a misunderstanding.
So you came here only to apologize?
Balbano takes his seat.
He’s sitting a bit further away than before.
That’s one reason I also have a request for you.
A replacement spear?
As expected of him, he knows what I want.
Come closer, why are you stepping so far back?
Yeah, I’m putting a request in this time so I’m naturally going to pay you for it.
The dwarves don’t show much interest in money so I’ll reward them with meat and alcohol.
Apparently they drink our alcohol like it’s tasty water.
However Balbano strokes his beard while looking somewhat troubled.
I take one step forward.
I’ll reward you with as much as it takes to satisfy you.
Balbano takes a step backward.
Our friendship can’t be measured with the amount of payment. It’s just that I don’t have any materials.
He did say that the materials used in that spear was precious.
You don’t have to use the very best materials. It’s enough for me if it doesn’t break when I use it in battle.
The important materials have all been used up in making cannons and what not. I can still make something better than your local blacksmiths with what I have on hand but I can’t give something like that to a friend.
I’m fine with something like that though.
It’s not like I’ll be hanging it up as decoration.
I will forever regret it if the spear breaks and my pal dies. I won’t hand over anything half-a.s.sed!
Balbano is, just like his outward appearance, stubborn.
It won’t improve the product if I continue to hound him.
Do you have someone to supply you with materials?
Recently, a young crowd has been digging through a new tunnel, probably inspired by your friends. We can probably gather some materials there.
Hmm seems it’ll be pretty time-consuming.
Right as I was thinking about asking the blacksmiths in Lintbloom to make something in the meantime, I feel a rumbling in my stomach.
At the same time, the earth beneath my feet shakes and dust falls down from the ceiling.
I-is it another earthquake!?
Celia quickly runs over.
No, it’s much closer and shorter than what we experienced in Vandolea.
A cave-in!? Check to see if anyone got caught under the rocks!
Balbano instantly realizes the truth of the situation, tosses away his alcohol and dashes out of the room.
It’s the path that Bonbo and Dogon dug!
Search for them, they might be buried underneath the rubble. Take shovels and pickaxes with you!
Dwarves start gathering around from nearby.
Sorry, but we’ll have to continue this later. I have to go now as well.
I’ll go too.
For now, I’ll take the hammer hung up in this room.
With this, I would be able to smash any boulders blocking the way.
We’ll go too.
Celia, Gido, and Christoph will be coming with me.
I speak to Balbano as we run through the tunnel.
Do cave-ins happen often?
I hear that it happens frequently in the iron mine leading to casualties.
Of course not, we’re dwarves that live in the mountains. Screw-ups like that are rare. That’s why I’m worried. There’s a chance it would pierce through that place.
There is a place deep down in the mountains filled with monsters called ‘the abyss’ and there are rare times when digging tunnels would cause a slit which connects to that h.e.l.l to open up.
When that happens, monsters will keep rushing out until the hole is sealed.
I don’t want to see another spider like the last time. I don’t have my spear either.
As we grumble our ways down the tunnel, we reach the end and sure enough see that the ceiling has collapsed.
Two dwarves were pinned underneath the fallen rocks and dirt.
They’re trapped under there! Dig them out!
While their buddies are busy digging, Balbano and I check the wall at the very back.
There’s a crack.
It is a large enough opening that I can easily see through to the other side.
I try looking through the crack and see nothing but darkness.
Does that mean it’s connected to that abyss?
Move, let me see.
Balbano takes a pot of oil lit with fire uses it like a torch and throws it over to the other side through the crack.
After a few seconds, I could hear the pot shatter and a small flame grows inside the pitch black s.p.a.ce.
Seeing that, the dwarves sigh lightly in relief.
So it isn’t the abyss like we thought. If it was, it would be a bottomless hole.
But Balbano’s face quickly tenses up.
It looks like a relatively large cave. It might be possible that it leads to the abyss so investigations must be done.
It’s true that it took several seconds before the pot fell and shattered at the bottom, meaning it’s definitely a deep and wide hole.
I make sure I have my hammer just in case enemies appear.
You have a sword too!
Celia brought my Dual Crater with her.
What a good girl, I’ll lick her p.u.s.s.y enough to make her dripping wet later.
Balbano takes a st.u.r.dy-looking rope from his friends woven together with what looks like something metallic, then hammers the end of it to the ground before tossing the other end through the crack in front of us.
I guess we’ll be going down the hole with this.
I’ll go first. You come after me.
Might as well, since I’m already here.
Balbano takes the lead, followed by me and then Celia. We descend down the cavity while relying on the metallic chain.
When I pause briefly, Celia lowers her soft a.s.s on my face.
Please don’t play around right now!
She got upset.
I’ll prepare myself for what’s to come then.
You idiot! Don’t fart on my head!
Sorry, I tensed up too much.
When we reach the bottom, we get some light by setting fire to flammable ore.
We have to make sure this hole doesn’t connect to the abyss.
Everything looks clear over here.
Nothing over here either. There is no hole or crack.
In darkness, you can see the truth
Uwaaaaaah!! nevermind, it was just a mushroom.
Celia and the others didn’t find anything.
Balbano also runs around, checking the wall here and there, not finding any particular problems.
Nevertheless, this is such a large area this s.p.a.ce is easily over 50 meters tall and the radius seems to be greater than 100 meters.
In most cases, areas like these would be irregularly shaped but this place is almost perfectly circularit makes me think I’m inside a giant building or something.
The ground is flat and clear too.
There are no rocks, b.u.mps or dips in the ground.
It was as if someone tidied the place up.
I find a spot in the perfectly round walls that looks abnormal.
I shine a light on the area and see a large protruding bulge.
Is it a sculpture or something?
Only this part is a different color.
I take my hammer and try hitting that spot, but it makes a ‘kac.h.i.n.k’ sound and makes my hand feel numb.
It’s strangely hard.
As I grimace in pain, I look up to find two shining orbs of light.
I hold my torch up and don’t find anything unusual.
It’s just a little big.
I sigh and turn around, then quickly run to where the rope is.
Aegir-sama, something strange is- mgh!
As Celia runs and meets me halfway, I stop her mid-sentence, then pick her up and carry her.
Balbano as well as Gido and company also silently signal each other with hand signals before running full speed.
Oi, oi what is that?
Christoph freezes as he turns to look behind him.
Gestures were made to tell him not to let out a sound, but that idiot doesn’t seem to have the courage not to do so.
Christoph’s scream echoes throughout the entire s.p.a.ce and then, as if answering back, a terrifying, head-splitting roar shook the air.
Gido tumbles after hearing that sound while Balbano and I stop moving altogether.
Christoph, who was the closest to the sound, gets blown away and faints.
Kroll closes his eyes and spreads his arms wide. Celia lets out a weak whimper.
After the roar, that thing slowly gets up and makes its way toward us.
I say it’s heading toward us, but it really takes just two or three steps, and yet it was able to close a lot of distance.
It doesn’t look possible for us to turn our backs to it and climb the rope.
Who would have thought it actually exists
