I Woke Up In The Morning And Became A Seeker, So I Dived Into A Dungeon ~Steadily Leveling Up Starting at the First Level~ - Chapter 25
Chapter 25. Kouhai
After finishing today’s dungeon search, Kodachi-san and I pedaled our bicycles to a family restaurant in front of the station.
In front of the family restaurant, a kouhai girl dressed boyishly was waiting for us.
She was Yuzuki Hotaru, kouhai at my part-time job.
When Yumizuki spotted Kodachi-san and me, she looked somewhat taken aback.
When I arrived at the site, Yuzuki opened her mouth to me and said something like this.
“Mu, Rikusou-senpai! Who is that beautiful woman?
“I told you on the phone earlier. I said I’m going with a seeker senpai.”
“Eeeeee! Was the senior seeker senpai a woman? What are you doing, Rikusou-senpai? Don’t tell me you were diving in the dungeon alone with such a beautiful woman! It’s a disgrace. It’s a disgrace. Ouch!”
“What are you talking about in front of someone you’ve never met?”
I drop a chop on the kouhai’s head.
Yuzuki got teary-eyed and said, “No, I mean Rokuyari-senpai. How could I say such a thing to me in front of someone I just met for the first time?”.
By the way, Kodachi-senpai, seeing Yumizuki’s flirtatious behavior, smiled with a troubled smile and said, “Haha …….” Well, that’s what happens.
I received the phone call after today’s dungeon exploration.
It was a “request” phone call from Yuzuki Hotaru, my kouhai at my part-time job.
What was the “request”?
It was because Yuzuki had awakened as a seeker sometime before.
However, she was not ready to go to the dungeon alone, and when she talked to her parents about it, they told her not to do it because it would be dangerous and to keep her secret from others.
But then she heard that I, a senpai at her part-time job, had become a seeker and dived into a dungeon.
It was reassuring to hear that someone close to her had dived into a dungeon.
I also heard that Yuzuki’s desire to go to the dungeon had grown and that she had convinced her parents to let her dive into the dungeon.
After listening to the whole story over the phone, I consulted with Kodachi-san, who was standing next to me.
As a result, we decided to meet and talk with Yuzuki.
We met in front of a family restaurant in front of the station, and here we are.
Kodachi-san probably didn’t expect me to be such a bold guy.
Unfortunately, Yuzuki’s tension is normal.
Yumizuki bowed politely as she stepped in front of Kodachi-san.
“Nice to meet you, Yuzuki Hotaru. My senpai is indebted to you.”
“It’s nice to meet you too. I’m Kazane Kodachi. Nice to meet you, Yuzuki-san.”
“Please feel free to call me ‘Hitaru-chan. May I call you Kazane-san, too?
“Umm, yes. I don’t mind, but…”
Kodachi-san glanced at me.
I give her a nice smile, and Kazane-oneesan says, “Shhhh! Shh!” and raises her index finger to her mouth.
It’s no use. It’s the mercy of a samurai.
I’ll keep quiet about how funny it is when I call you Onee-chan.
But Yuzuki, who saw Kodachi-san and me, turned a surprised look at me.
“Oh, that Rikusou-senpai is getting along with a woman he’s only just gotten to know, ……!”
“Wait a minute, Yumizuki. What do you mean by that?”
“Well, Rikusou-senpai, you build a wall against girls, don’t you? I mean, you build walls against everyone else, don’t you?
“……No, I can’t deny that, but…”
“Even at work, isn’t it about the same as ours? We can talk without being a stranger.”
Hey, kouhai, cut me some slack.
My mental HP is already at zero.
This guy is a monster of communicative power, too.
She breaks down my walls and gets into my pocket.
After greeting, the three of us went into a family restaurant.
We thought we would have to wait for dinner, but surprisingly, we were shown to our seats right away.
We each ordered our dinner menu.
I did not want Kodachi-san to order beer, but she said, “Just one beer, just one beer!” I allowed her to have one beer.
Why I was in charge of keeping an eye on Kodachi-san was a mystery to me.
On the other hand, Yuzuki, seeing the exchange between Kodachi-san and me said, “Hmmm,” and seemed to be deeply interested in the conversation.
After we had finished placing our orders, I got down to business.
“So, Yuzuki. I heard that you are also a seeker.”
“Yes, that’s right. One day, when I woke up in the morning, I could see my status. ─ ─ [Status Open].”
Yuzuki said and opened her status.
