[Time moves 144 times faster inside the dungeon than the surface. So that means one hour on the surface is equals to six hours inside]
Akane’s word determined my next action for the next two days. As the entrance and exit of the dungeon appeared in my yard this mean that it belongs to me legally. Also, with its difference in how time run I can spend six days inside for just one hour on the ground giving me a lot of leisure time that’s why I decided to DIY
[First, I need to put up a fence so that the neighbor won’t see it. Next is to secure the entrance to prevent rainwater from entering. Next up would be to put handrails and rubber padding to prevent from slippage since it’s very steep. The safety zone is to be boarded up and we should check of electricity can be accessed from the outside. Though I assume that changes in time would affect electricity. Anyway, in a chance that electricity from the outside would not be viable, then I would just have to get a home energy storage unit.]
My plan is to turn the safety zone into a <Workroom>. I would like to have some equipment here like a computer which I can work on however the internet connection might have an issue. I also want a refrigerator though I know it’ll be hard to put in and would definitely run electricity every time. Off I go to the DIY store.
[Hello. I’m going to do some remodeling in the yard. So, please forgive me for making a little noise]
While I went to buy boards to hide my garden, I also went to some Japanese sweet store to buy some expensive sweets and use to greet my neighbor. Better not get stingy over these greeting.
After finishing my greetings to my neighbors, I started my home improvement renovation. I did get some fence kit that is 180cm high and 90 cm wide and since it’s not that large six of them are enough. The gaps that might appear would be hidden by using some artificial ivy plant.
Next, I went and remodel the garden. It’s only about two tatamis in size. I went and removed the weeds, level the ground with a shovel and then laid tiles over it. There’s no need to worry about the weeds as the tile is blocking out the sun hindering its growth.
The entrance of the dungeon is then surrounded with concrete bricks and then a blue sheet was placed over it. All this work is done in almost a day.
[I never thought that my first job would be foot rubbing.]
I brought a beach chair inside the safety zone and lay down there. I asked Akane to rub my thigh and shins. Even though she was complaining she was still obeying my command. Akane who had the sexual skill really massaged me well and it really was comfortable especially for my tired muscles.
[If Kazuhiko-sama wants I can do something even more pleasurable. I can make you feel even hotter and harder with my breast and mouth…]
Her thin white hand slips toward my lower body but there’s no voice that tried to stop her because the comfort of her massage put me to sleep. Akane looked up with only a sigh escaping out of her lips.
I looked at my watch and saw that two hours had passed however on the surface it’s only a minute. It looks like Akane kept on massaging me while I was asleep. My thigh just feels so much better.
[I want to make sure that we’re ready for the future. First, I want to make sure that we are prepared.]
As I laid back on the beach chair and talked about my plans on concealing the entrance and exit and my renovation plans for the secret zone making Akana to have a dumbfounded look.
[This dungeon appeared inside my house, meaning no one can enter it. I should be allowed to remodel it in the way that I want, including this room.]
[Certainly, I don’t see any problem with it]
[Hmm do you have something to complain about?]
[No. it’s just that there’s something I haven’t told you about the dungeon system]
Akane’s word made me think of a possibility
[Don’t tell me that demons can escape from the dungeon?]
[That’s unlikely, for the time being… there’s two ways for a demon to get out of the dungeon. First is that to make them into card and its owner became a <dungeon vanquisher>. The one who would conquer the dungeon would receive several rewards depending on the difficulty of the dungeon the cleared. Each conqueror would then gain the ability to manifest cards on the surface]
[I see, so in other words, after defeating this dungeon, I can take Akane out to the surface?]
[Yes, at that time you can take me out… as you wish]
[Well, I’m looking forwards to it. Now, for the second way.]
I urged her to talk. She’s certainly a beauty that can chase away any gravure idol or actresses. Unfortunately, though she had the habit of mixing in colorful talks in between conversation. Yes, it’s kind of a drawback to insert sexual talk in important conversation.
[After one revolution, the dungeon system would fully activate and the 666 dungeons would then appear around the world. Humanity would then have 10 revolutions to conquer all the dungeon or else a demon stampede would occur and monster would overrun the world end masse.]
[Oh, come on! So, you’re telling me that if we don’t clear all the dungeons in 11 years, we’re doomed via a demon stampede?]
[Even though my memories are erased I knew that a lot of worlds that had suffered destruction at the hands of the dungeon system]
I have thought that I could just live inside the dungeon and have fun, but if it’s going to destroy the world in just 10 years then I can’t just ignore it.
[I had to make sure that nobody knows that I am the first contractor…]
[For now, I suggest that you concentrate in the Abyss dungeon as this dungeon have abundant supply of enhancement factor and I believe that you would definitely become stronger]
[hmm… is this < enhancement factor> you call the same with EXP that is mostly found in video game?]
Name: Kazuhiko Ezoe
Title: Contractor no. 1
Number of cards held: 0/∞
Skill: Card Gacha
[This rank thing over here is like a level, right? So, the enhancement factor is the experience value while the rank is the levels?]
[I don’t know what an RPG is, but ranks are strength indicator being F as the weakest and is comparable to an ordinary person then gradually increasing to E, D, C then up to SSS]
[So, if you defeat a monster and get enhancement factors then your rank will go up]
[No, it only goes up once you get stronger]
Something caught my attention on Akane’s words.
[Wait, if I defeat monster and gained enhancement factor my rank should go up and I’ll become stronger right?]
[The cause and effect are different. The reason you rank up is because you get stronger, it not because you rank up that you get stronger. Your body takes in enhancement factor that strengthen your physical abilities and if you train your body in this state, you can become stronger much faster than usual. It also would improve muscle strength, increase reflex, recovers from illness, rejuvenate cell age etcetera. In addition, the person might develop magic circuit enabling the use of magic]
Finally, I got it. The strengthening system is more in line with reality than a game. In game you powered up once you gained a level up but in this set up it means that if I work hard and become strong it will then reflect on my status.
[so that means that constant efforts are essential in order to grow stronger]
[Yes. And I would help you in that. I would also teach you how to fight.]
[Understood. But for now, I need to prepare. I’m not only going to remodel this room but also prepare some equipment for entering the dungeon]
I then returned Akane into a card and returned to the surface.
