Chapter 283 - Let's Slip in a Hand

Return to Angelite City once, pass through Iskanil Forest, and secure the required number of Power Stones at the Dragonil Shipyard. Then, return to the Vordo Ruins and hand them over to Butler No. 13... that was decided at the party meeting started by Kazane last night.

Though since they were planning to go through Iskanil Forest to the shipyard after exploring the Vordo Ruins anyway, the only difference from the original plan was that the exploration of the Vordo Ruins was finished early.

Originally, Kazane and the others thought exploring the Vordo Ruins would take between three days to a week. With the map given to them by Butler No. 13, they were able to reach the target Grimoire Field in the shortest time, so the schedule was advanced.

Also, they were initially thinking about subjugating the Dragon Eaters in the Iskanil Forest, but they discovered from conversing with Morphia that the total number was much higher than they had expected. So they revised their policy and decided to only hunt prey they happened to come across. It looked like annihilating them would be impossible.

Of note was that almost all of the monsters taken over by the Dragon Eaters were Wyverns. Since they could no longer fly after being transformed into Dragon Eaters, their low defense power due to thin scales made them relatively easy Dragon Eater opponents.

With the party's objectives thus decided, they left the Vordo Ruins and returned to Angelite City, where they stayed overnight. At that time, they also met the Birdmen who had already come to Angelite City.

At that time, they didn't talk about the possibility of the island falling. It seemed Morphia was still at the village, and Mefirus judged that asking someone to deliver a message for such an important and delicate matter was dangerous.

With their only purpose for being there, Morphia, still at the village, Kazane and the others decided to leave a message for him saying they were going to Dragonil Shipyard before they headed towards Iskanil Forest.

◎ Floating Island, Iskanil Forest

「There's no way we can burn down the forest. The Wyverns around here seem to have some degree of resistance to the Dragon Eaters' scent, so shall I talk to Husband about that?」

Kazane said when they reached the entrance to the forest. And gasping breaths could be heard behind Kazane.

「Hey, Yumika...」

「What, Kazane?」

「Could you stop rubbing my breasts?」

Yes, Yumika was holding Kazane's chest with an eagle grip. Specifically, Yumika was behind Kazane and putting her hands in the gaps of Kazane's armor so she could grab them like a hand bra.

「You don't have any breasts?」

「No, I have a little. And if I don't have any, couldn't you not rub them?」

「But it's a happy feeling!」

Yumika had heart marks in her eyes as she said that while clinging to Kazane from behind. When the nape of Kazane's neck was kissed, she made an (Ughya) face. Behind, Naoki and Tiara were watching with indescribable facial expressions. Mainly envy.

There was a reason such a Yuri, or rather, completely lesbian development was taking place. It was due to their measure against the Dragon Eaters: Kazane's『Dragon Pheromone』Skill.

To start with, the genesis of that measure was the material from the Dragon Eaters they had defeated previously called Dragon Eating Wood. Kazane had heard that if they carried that with them, they would be recognized as the same kind by Dragon Eaters and wouldn't be parasitized. That wasn't necessarily wrong, but that simply meant they wouldn't be parasitized; as existences that were part dragon, they wouldn't be able to avoid being charmed by the Dragon Eaters' scent. Kazane learned in an email exchange with Ao the day before that wearing a special mask was necessary. It was a complete oversight in verification.

So as an alternate plan, Kazane decided to try using Dragon Pheromone so that Yumika's consciousness would be turned to Kazane instead of the Dragon Eaters, but trying it out had led to this situation. Kazane was the one to suggest it, so she had been putting up with it so far, but Yumika's state had drastically changed.

「Ufuufu, Kazaneee, Kazaneee. Cuuute, cuuute.」

「Wai, stop! Not my ears! I don't like it, I said! No, stop, going down is no good! Wai... don't put your hand in my pants!!」

She was kicked.

「Wh, what was I!?」

「Yumika is standing by this time! It's decided!!」

With the Skill released, Yumika had returned to sanity, and she was told to standby by their leader, whose face was bright red as she pulled up her pants with teary eyes. It was a leader's order that brooked no argument.

By the way, since Tatsuo's affection rating for his mother was originally Max, it seemed he hadn't really changed, but it looked like his physical condition was worsened by the scent, so they decided he would also ride Hippo-kun Crys with Yumika and stand by in Angelite City.

Also, no one noticed that Naoki had clenched his fist with joy from being able to very slightly see her underwear when her pants were lowered. Fortunately.

Kazane had a history of receiving mascot treatment among girls extending back from high school to middle school, but genuine lesbians were no good. She didn't want something like the incident with Yoshinaga-san to ever happen again. When Kazane told Yumika that she had acted like drunk Yoshinaga-san, she was very depressed. As might be expected, Yumika didn't think she had started acting like Yoshinaga-san. She was so shocked that her face was ghastly pale.

Therefore, forgetting worthless things, Kazane and the others entered Iskanil Forest.

By the way, Jinrai was riding Yuuko-nee. Jinrai insisted that it was to keep them synchronized, but in reality, he just wanted to be with her. Jinrai's Cat Love rank had raised one more level from learning jealousy. In other words, it had become more troublesome.

Also, it seemed that in order to avoid meeting Dragon Eaters, the Birdmen rarely entered Iskanil Forest. As a result, the old road to the shipyard had disappeared long ago. Since it was a trackless path, they decided to ride the Hippo-kuns without bringing out the carriage.

As for the Dragon Eaters in the forest,

「Ah, yeah. Jinrai-san, there.」

In accordance with Kazane's instructions, Jinrai shifted his attention to the slightly raised mass of dirt under the trees in front of him. When he looked very closely, it was a Wyvern type Dragon Eater camouflaged as a tree, tree roots, and lump of soil.

Jinrai quickly lifted his pair of dragonfang spears, put his power into them, and immediately stabbed.

That was『Heart Hunter』, the secret technique Jinrai had invented to cut the Core out of a monster. With that technique, the area around the Dragon Eater's Core was torn to pieces, and it fell out.

「……It's over.」

Jinrai muttered.

Dragon Eaters' Cores doubled as their brains. It was different if they were in an active state, but they couldn't move if the Core was suddenly separated. The parasitized Wyvern was also no longer conscious, so its life peacefully ended.

「Hmph. This can't be called hunting.」

「Even if you say that, without Jinrai-san's ability, they can't be brought down in one blow.」

After finishing the subjugation in a very short time, Jinrai muttered that while collecting materials, and Kazane so replied. The reason the Dragon Eater hadn't moved was Kazane's Dragon Pheromone. Since Kazane was letting out the scent of a fellow Dragon Eater, it had recognized Kazane and the others as companions and hadn't reacted at all.

Then Jinrai cut out its Core in one shot, making it incapable of action, so the hunt was finished without receiving any attacks. If Dragon Eaters were the natural enemies of dragons, the current Kazane could be called the natural enemy of Dragon Eaters.

Though this was only possible because Jinrai could kill Dragon Eaters with a single blow. If it weren't for that, the attacked Dragon Eater would have immediately counterattacked. Kazane could defeat them with a single blow if she used a powerful technique like Mega Beam, but she couldn't do something like quickly cutting out only their Cores like Jinrai could.

Since it was a situation like fish were biting at every cast, Kazane and the others' hunting took up that day and the two following days. In the end, they had successfully subjugated 37 Dragon Eaters.

It was the collection of materials that took time, not the searching and defeating. Most of the parasitized monsters were Wyverns, which had organic Cores that stopped working when they died. However, there were also four normal dragons that had been parasitized, and with the one obtained from the Blitz Wyvern Naoki and the others had defeated in front of the Vordo Ruins, they had obtained 5 Dragon Hearts on this floating island. Two would be used to power mass-produced Tatsuyoshi-kuns, but the usage of the rest was undecided.

Also, Dragon Eater Cores were a high grade material, and they had obtained 37 of them. There was also quite a lot of other material, so the Mysterious Warehouse would soon be full. Dragon Eater Cores were a favorite food of dragons, so Kazane thought they might be good souvenirs for her husband, but since they were property marked for sale, she would have to consult with her companions.

However, this outcome was also proof of how firmly Dragon Eaters had taken root in this area. That was the amount they simply happened to come across as they moved. It seemed eliminating the Dragon Eaters from the floating island would be quite difficult.
