Chapter 3: Uninvited Guests
While Geo and Headon we’re talking a raven haired woman was walking on stairs heading down to their direction.
“Lady Yuri! Lady Yuri! My lady, please wait!” a silver haired man with a height of a dwarf carrying a bag bigger than himself, shouted to woman.
“Come on Evan, we need to hurry!” Yuri shouted with glee to the man that was identified as Evan.
“But my lady, why are we going to the first floor?” Evan asked while promptly following Yuri.
“An irregular has interred the base tower! he opened the gates by himself!.” Yuri answered with excitement like the thought of such events could bring no amount of trill in her heart.
Not long after descending down the stairs, they arrived to an opining in the floor. Below the opining, they could see the floors guardian, Headon, talking with a raven haired kid.
“So that’s him, Huh. I thought he would be.. well… scarier.” Yuri said as she lay down the edge of the opining while observing the irregular.
“Hey Evan, since your a guide why don’t you come take a look at him. See if there’s anything spacial about the kid.” Yuri said as she called out to the panting Evan.
Evan scotched over the edge of the opining to observe the irregular to see if he has any outstanding features.
“hmmm… well, as far as I can see, his just a regular guy. There’s nothing special about him.” Evan said after scrutinizing the irregular up and down.
“What!? but aren’t Irregular’s like supposed to be giants with trunks for legs.” Yuri asked in confusion.
Evan just stared at her in a deadpan and said “Princess, I don’t think Urek is even that big..”
Yuri prop her head up with her left hand and said “Well that’s disappointing, I was hoping for something exciting.”
“Why would you want to bring chaos to the tower?” Evan asked in surprised.
“I don’t know. To lighten up the tower I guess.” Yuri answered. Then when they directed their attention to Headon, they saw what kind of test the irregular kid was given.
“The Ball test!? Is Headon trying to kill the kid!?” Yuri exclaimed when he assessed the difficulty of the test.
“Maybe his doing it to deter the kid from climbing the tower. He’ll probably just run away considering the difficulty of the test.” Evan said sagely like he knew the answers to the world.
“Hmmm… should we help him?” Yuri asked more to herself than anyone else.
“What!? Why would you do that? If Headon finds out that were here, where toast.” Evan asked hysterically. Then he immediately composed himself and regained his composure.
“Well, no matter. His clearly thinking things out. As far as I can see, he doesn’t have the strength to take on this test.” Evan said evenly.
Yuri just swayed hear feet back and forth and said “Let’s see.”
But against all of Evan’s expectation, the kid started running towards the entrance of the gate where the armored eel was located.
“Hahahaha! You see that Evan! That kid got spunk! I’m going.” Yuri laughed merrily. She stand up and leaped through the opining.
“My lady wait!!” Evan yelled with his hands stretched out.
“Don’t worry Evan! nothing well happen to me~!” Yuri yelled as she descended from the hole.
“It’s not your head that I’m worried about my freaking lady, it’s mine.”
