I Became a Beautiful Girl, but I’m still an MMO Junkie - Chapter 79.1
“So, what are we going to do with the blond, twin-tailed girl?” Kouya asked as he closely observed the immobile Giant Zombie.
In response, Lily was completely on guard. When she was freed from Kouya’s paralysis ability, she immediately took on a stance to counterattack, but she couldn’t because she was surrounded by everyone, with weapons aimed at her.
“We have to kill her, right? Can’t let our guard down for a moment and have the party taken out from behind, can we?”
While calmly lighting the red, beautiful Dairin-Kazan (Great Wheel Fire Slash), and pointing its sharp tip towards Lily, Yurachi nonchalantly responded to Kouya.
“I agree. Also, how is this girl here in the first place? It’s suspicious.”
It seems that Anon-san was also on-board with this opinion. The naginata that she was gripping seemed to assert that it could take Lily’s life at any moment, and the blade of the spearhead was shining dimly.
“Lily the Bandit… I’m sorry, but in a place like this dungeon, we can’t have a mercenary like you in the party with your kind of reputation. Even though we fought together before, the risk of having you along is just too great, right?”
As the party leader, I believed it was appropriate to say that we should eliminate dangerous individuals. However, I also wanted to hear the opinion of everyone.
“I think that… dangerous people should be killed.”
Mina, although she chose her words carefully, did not show any hesitation with the mace in her hand.
“Punishment is also good. Captain Yuu?”
In the midst of everyone exuding a tense atmosphere, only the small and beautiful young man who spoke in a military-like tone had a humble smile. What exactly does RF4-you, also known as Yuji, mean by this “punishment”? Knowing Yuji’s preference for beautiful girls, it could be something not very appropriate.
“Wait a minute, everyone. Lily-san just helped us earlier, so I don’t think we should treat her as an enemy.”
“But Taru… her reputation, and the actions she has taken before, do not allow for any carelessness on our part.”
Yuuki’s firm expression showed that there was no room for change in this decision. Everyone else also seemed to disagree with my opinion this time.
The situation was explosive and the person who created it, Kouya, was whispering to himself; “attack is impossible, extraction is impossible… when it doesn’t move it’s nothing but a complete corpse or, is it an object that mercenaries can’t interfere with…” and gave a calm analysis of the Giant Zombie without any regard for what’s happening around him.
He may be regretting his decision to distance himself from Lily and use a paralyzing attack without warning. That’s why he did not want an opinion on what to do with Lily’s future and may believe he has no right to say.
Lily, on the other hand, had been silent throughout and her attitude showed that she was ready to fight if anyone takes action against her.
“But if Lily secretly followed us and was waiting for an opportunity to strike, why would she reveal herself by helping us?”
Everyone probably had a big question and mistrust towards Lily being here. We were probably the only ones who entered the underground city of Jorn.
“Hmm… I can understand how Taru-chan feels.”
“Generally, when unexpected situations occur in this dungeon, when we judge that we cannot handle it alone, she may have been secretly considering the opportunity to propose a cooperation with us.”
“Rumor has it that her cooperation is always temporary…”
“That’s right, Taru.”
Yurachi, Yuuki and Anon-san rejected Lily joining the Party. But if the quick-shooting archer, Lily, became our ally, it would be reassuring. Just me and Kouya alone could only take down one Luna Homunculus at a time, and earlier we were caught up with dealing with the Giant Zombie and couldn’t fight it properly.
If we could only eliminate the Luna Homunculus. We can’t waste this strategy and with our current strength, there shouldn’t be a better choice.
“But… I want to trust Lily. We fought together once.”
“Taru, the situation is different now than when you fought together with Michelangelo and his group. Even if she betrays us here, in some cases, depending on the timing, there may be no one to blame and it may be too late to do anything.”
Yuuki spoke to me in a gentle tone, explaining the danger of Lily to me. How her personality can’t be trusted.
“Then… I trust Lily’s bow skills.”
This way of speaking may not be good for Lily, but now, having Lily, who had a strong attack method for this dungeon, join the party, had not only negative aspects but also big advantages.
“With her bow, we can easily defeat the Luna Homunculus. With that, our strategy in this dungeon will become much easier… and it’s certain that we’ll struggle on our own.”
Yuuki, who was usually always cheerful, surprisingly narrowed his eyes and glanced at Lily.
Feeling that my best friend was about to give up, I knew that I was one step away. Was there any other material to use and persuade them?
While I was desperately searching for words to convince everyone, Kouya suddenly shouted.
“Hey, it’s bad! Flying Leg!”
Everyone focused their gaze on Kouya, but he was already jumping. Ahead of where he flew, a pale blue light shone.
I had forgotten that I left the door open because I was focused on dealing with Lily.
From the gap that led to the outside of the city, two Luna Homunculus, the False Soul longing for the Moon, were trying to enter.
Kouya quickly noticed the emergency situation and took action.
Even in the air, he was at a disadvantage, his irregular movements made it easy for the homunculus as they avoided Kouya’s fist.
My friend, who was about to hit the stone door, succeeded in an aerial backflip and, as a bonus, after kicking the door close, landed on the ground like a gymnast.
The door was slightly closed by Kouya’s kick, but the next moment, it opened with a heavy sound.
There was only one being that could easily open such a heavy door from the outside.
“Another Giant Zombie of the Giant’s Lineage is outside!”
“It’s the fault of the two Luna Homunculus that entered! The corpse of the Giant Zombie!”
Following my prediction, Yurachi let out a scream.
Along with the pale blue light, an unpleasant sound of something huge rising up resounded.
“This is bad…”
One outside, one inside. In total, we were about to be sandwiched by two Giant Zombies of the Giant’s Lineage and our legs started to freeze with the approaching despair.
T/N: Sorry for my late release guys, I fell ill for a while now. Still not at 100% but I’ll try to keep releasing slowly. Again, sorry guys.
