BLCI Chapter 24-Settlement
Now, then, it’s the Dragon Princess Vielle……..
After the pork steak filled me up, she challenged me to fight again as my digestion progressed and I was able to move again.
Apparently, the sense of mission wavered from listening to Sensei’s explanation.
In an attempt to overcome the ordeal given to her by father dragon, she returns to her dragon form and attacks.
Trying to take the Holy Sword.
I don’t want to be killed too, so I used the holy sword to fight back.
I won in five seconds.
「I’m strong, 」 I said, surprising myself.
Still undeterred, I beat Vielle that tries again, and as she tries again and again, her stomach digests more and more, so if I make a steak with the leftover thawed meat, Vielle will be happy to eat it.
I’ll attack you again when I’m full.
I’m starting to get good and tired of being in the middle of it too, so I decide to use the last resort.
「You won’t get any more steaks when I’m dead.」
That stopped Vielle.
The dragon had been baited.
「In order to get over my father’s test, I must kill this human. If you kill the ningen, you can’t eat delicious meat. What should I do? Oh, oh…?!」
I was really worried.
「If I could just hand over the holy sword, I wonder if that would be the end of it? 」
When I think about it, I don’t have a hair’s breadth of reason to stick to this sword myself.
Isn’t it enough if the person who wants it most, owns it?
「Give me that, it’s not too late to give it to me now, give me the Evil Sacred Sword! 」
Vielle clutched at me with a change in her eyes, but as it turned out it was still no good.
The holy sword doesn’t leave my hand like it did at that time.
I handed it to Vielle in a scabbard and the moment I tried to let go of my hand, the blade stuck to me like a sucker and wouldn’t move away.
「Oh, I knew it! 」
It was a semi-predictable situation, so I gave up quickly.
It seems that Vielle is still living in the mountain dungeon and thinking about ways to get the holy sword away from me, because she can’t return to her father without it.
「Remember, Ningen, one day I’ll definitely snatch the Evil Sacred Sword out of your hands! In the meantime, I’ll come back to eat delicious meat from time to time, so please take care of me!」
「Oh, you can come by anytime.」
This is how I got another good friend and neighbour.
The second person after Sensei.
We’ve got the world’s two biggest calamities on our list of acquaintances right away!
「”Good heavens! So we can continue to collect and hunt in that mountain dungeon from now on 」
Platy went crazy about that.
That was the point at which she was most pleased.
「Not only that, the ingredients you can get in the mountain dungeon are much more plentiful than in the cave dungeon! 」
「Don’t be a good sport, mermaid. I will not allow you to catch all you can. 」
It wasn’t so much a pleasant story.
「The monsters in my dungeon are a valuable food source for me. If you catch what I eat, you’ll be the enemy.」
When I asked for the details that square boar or horned boar are Vielle’s favourite food.
It was her favourite food, to attack in them in dragon form and swallow them whole while they were still alive.
This time, she was angry and came to beat us down because she was frankly pissed off at us for overfishing dozens of those horned boars.
「The amount of food we eat is insignificant compared to the dragonized you. I was going to spend about a year consuming what we hunted this time, too. 」
「Oh, really? 」
「Besides, with the help of your hands I can eat square boas in a way that’s far better than swallowing them whole and that’s already been proven, isn’t it? 」
「Well, certainly…! 」
We can get material in dungeons with the endorsement of the dungeon master, the dragon.
Vielle can eat her prey in a more delicious way as a reward.
A great give and take has been established…!
「 If that is decided, I’d like to consult with Vielle.」
「What’s that human? 」
The horned boar is not the only thing that can be collected from the mountain dungeon where Vielle lives.
There will be many other kinds of monsters living in the area, and there is an abundance of other mountain products with wood, wild vegetables and nuts.
The hut we live in was built with lumber cut from the mountain dungeons of the Vielle, if you think about it.
「Are there any bird monsters in the dungeons you control? 」
I heard earlier in Platy’s story that there are several types of bird-type monsters as well.
I haven’t heard anything specific, but I wonder if they are in the dungeons of Vielle.
「Of course there are. Many kinds. But I don’t know much about them, they’re smaller than a square bore, not much bigger, and they’re too bony to be very tasty.」
Apparently with Vielle the ranking of bird food is lower than that of wild boar.
And underneath with quite a bit of space between them.
「darling, could it be? 」
Platy gulped down saliva as she remembered the earlier story.
Yes, I’m talking about eggs.
「Poultry is nice, but right now I’d rather have eggs.」
Vielle also has a puzzled look on his face.
「If there’s any kind of monster that lays eggs on a regular basis, I’d love to catch it and keep it…! 」
「If you have eggs, you can cook a better square bore than the one I just had! 」
Platy’s excitement propagated to Vielle.
「 What! The food I had today is ridiculously good, but even better! You say you can do that with a bird’s egg? 」
Tonkatsu. (It is a fried pork cutlet.)
You’ll need breadcrumbs as well as eggs, but you’ll be one step closer.
And it’s not just tonkatsu….
「 I’d really like some eggs and with eggs, the repertoire of dishes I can make will expand dramatically…」
The two beautiful women responded to those words at the same time.
「…… Darling, a question」
「How much does the repertoire expand, exactly? 」
「that’s very dramatically 」
Even if it’s just an egg, it’s fried eggs and boiled eggs.
There’s an explosion of food that can be made with other ingredients.
… Ah, I can make mayonnaise with eggs.
That’s another abundance of seasonings.
Also, eggs are essential in sweets.
I still have a few more problems to solve to get there, but it’s definitely a dream come true.
What they have been mute about? Silence
And you’re pulling and shaking your body?
「I’m going home, I’m going back to my dungeon right now! 」
But then suddenly Vielle exclaimed.
「We must capture the bird-monster by the roots and sort it out! I’ll definitely find one that’s laying eggs to suit your needs! 」
「Wait, Vielle, take me with you, I have a better eye for monster ecology than you do! 」
Thus, Platy rode on the back of Vielle, who had returned to her dragon form, and flew away with her.
Oh, are they close?
『well then it’s a very lively bunch of people to live with…』
And the No-Life King teacher has so far just watched in silence to see how things are going.
Calmly. That’s exactly what I felt like watching from behind the grass and leaves, and I didn’t realize an ounce of his presence.
As expected King of the undead.

By the way, the chicken monster I wanted was not found in the mountain dungeons dominated by Vielle after all.
Instead, it will be found in the cave dungeon where the sensei lives.
