“Nice to meet you-jyana.” (Teruru)
Yes, it is.” (Ryouta)
What came to my mind was the old lady of the candy shop.
A calm old lady sitting in a quiet space, a bit removed from the world (in a good way).
I had that feeling, and remembering my childhood, I naturally became respectful.
“Um, are you perhaps Teruru-san” (Ryouta)
“Ho-ho, that’s right-Jya.” (Teruru)
“Nice to meet you, I’m Ryouta Sato, and this is Margaret …… Huh” (Ryouta)
I turned to the side to introduce myself and was surprised.
I was surprised to see that Margaret was nowhere to be found, as we had passed through the gate together.
“I wanted to talk to you-jya.
I’ve asked that young girl to wait for me at the original place.” (Teruru)
“Is that what you were talking about! Is that the after–” (Ryouta)
I remembered Arsenic.
Arsenic’s spirit, Arsenic, who also has the appearance of an old man.
When they first met, Arsenic was on the verge of death.
I’m still healthy and I can stay here for hundreds of years.” (Teruru)
“Ho……, then why” (Ryouta)
“I’ve been watching you.
Ever since I first came here.” (Teruru)
“Aah, I see.” (Ryouta)
“I’ve been watching how you’ve been getting stronger.
But today’s movement was strange.
…… Something happened, didn’t it” (Teruru)
“Yeah, …….” (Ryouta)
I thought, I see.
And I was grateful.
The fact that someone I’d never met before (well, technically, not for the first time) was concerned about me made me feel a warm glow in my chest.
“Are you suffering from some kind of illness” (Teruru)
“Oh no, actually …….” (Ryouta)
I told her about my experience with Nihonium.
I had a fixed level of 1 and no way to get stronger, but I collected the seeds that dropped in the Nihonium and increased my abilities.
But what the Nihonium wanted was to cause trouble for others, which in turn caused trouble for only me.
And that’s why I got my powers back.
I explained the whole story to Grandma Teruru
“That’s a lot of work.” (Teruru)
“To be honest, it’s a bit of work.” (Ryouta)
But it’s not entirely out of our control.
There are normal bullets, and there are special bullets that are more suited to the situation.
If you need overwhelming firepower, there are still blue flames left, and if you want to end it in an instant, there are still accelerators left.
Above all, the drop S is still there.
I’d say I’m in trouble, but not as much trouble as it looks, in fact.
“Do you require power-jya” (Teruru)
“I’ll lend you my power until Nihonium is in a better mood.” (Teruru)
“You want to lend your power to me…… Why” (Ryouta)
There is such a thing as a cute grandmother.
I thought the old man in front of me was definitely such a “cute grandma”.
“I want all the children who come to visit me to be healthy.” (Teruru)
“…… please.” (Ryouta)
I bowed my head quietly.
I felt like a grandmother who can’t wait to give her grandchildren their allowance.
And then – the spirit.
The spirit wants one thing and one thing only.
They want one thing and one thing only, to the point where nothing else matters.
Otherwise, she is a Teruru grandmother who gives off the vibe that she wants to give her grandchildren pocket money.
It’s unlikely that she’d be too sorry to refuse.
“Then, you should put this on.” (Teruru)
Grandma Teruru held out her hand.
She was holding something, I stretched out my hand as a plate, and she handed it to me.
It was a ring.
“What’s this” (Ryouta)
“It’s a ring that makes my children’s attacks completely unstoppable.” (Teruru)
“Your children as in …… slime” (Ryouta)
Grandma Teruru nodded quietly.
A ring that completely nullifies slime attacks.
This …… is a hell of a piece of equipment.
