5th Floor, the Day Before

The plan was to dive into the 5th floor today, but I’m still on the 4th floor.
The reason for the delay is because I’m applying for a rank up today.
I was able to apply when I reached BP 40, but I wanted to apply after I break through the 4th floor.

“Takagi Kaito-san”


“Congratulations. This is your Iron-Rank Identification Card.”

“Thank you.”

“Looking at your record, you have a rank up from Stone Rank in just a few months. That’s amazing. Is there some secret to it?”

“No, no. That’s not the case. Haha …”

“It seems that you took more than two years to reach Stone Rank, but only a few months to Iron Rank. That’s not something everyone can do. Please continue to do your best.”

“Yes, I’ll do my best.”

Although I was rarely praised, the guild people praised me this time, and blood concentrated on my face.

“And as an Iron Rank benefit, the purchase price of all items will be increased by 5%. Also, shopping at the dungeon market will be discounted by 5% except for rare items. “

It seems that Iron Rank is given a little more preferential treatment than Stone Rank.
Just a little…

I can’t believe it myself. Many changes have come to me at a tremendous pace since I met Sill and Rusheria.
A little while ago, if I talked to someone about being an Iron Rank and challenging the 5th floor, they would laugh at me.
But now, it’s a reality.
Though there is still a long way to go.

Since it took a long time to complete the procedure, I decided to potspone diving the 5th floor and dive into the 4th floor instead.

I was exploring as usual, but behind me, Sil and Rusheria are murmuring about something.
I’m curious, but I’m a little scared so I leave them be.

“Rusheria, what do you want to talk about?”

“Uhmm, that. It’s that.”

“What is that?”

“It’s your name.”

“What about my name?”

“Sylphy is called Sill. But he still call me Rusheria. I’m pretty much with him everyday, so I wonder when will he give me nickname.”

“Ahh, why don’t you ask him to give you nickname?”

“No, no. It’s not like I want him to give me nickname. It’s just that, you know.”

“What does Rusheria think of master?”

“No, to be honest, at first I thought I was summoned by a dull guy. And he is stingy at that. But he’s been pretty kind to me lately. “

“Yeah, master is kind.”

“I thought he is useless because he is weak, but after all this time. I think he is doing his best.”

“That’s right. He is doing his best for us who don’t like insects. He is so cool.”

“No, no, no!? He is not cool, but well, maybe just a little.”

“That’s right. Rusheria also loves master.”

“Are you stupid!? No. I don’t like him at all. I just think he is better than what I thought!!”

“Yeah, yeah. Then I’ll ask.”

“Wait, is that okay!?”


Apparently, they are done with their talk.


“What is it?”

“I have one request, is that okay?”

“Reauest? It depends on what your request is.”

“It’s about Rusheria’s name, can you give her a nickname like you did to me?”

“Well, to Rusheria? Is that okay? Will she curse me?”

“That’s what Rusheria wants.”

“Hmm, if it’s like that then I’ll think about it. Well then, How about Rushe.”

“Yes. I think it’s very good. Hey Rusheria.”

“O, oh, you don’t have a good naming sense. But well, it’s fine.”

“Oh, thank you for your help all this time, Rushe.”

“Uh, yeah, yeah. You welcome.”

What is with that attitude?
She asked me to give her a nickname, but then she said I don’t have naming sense.
I don’t know anymore.

After all, Rusheria no, Rushe is difficult to understand.

Tomorrow I will challenge the 5th floor.
