Chapter 5

1.5 The Matter of You Have to be Careful of Snake’s Mouth

I brought her to the bathroom to explain how to use it. But of course she is still dressed.

“It’s wonderful. What on earth happened to the room inside the dungeon where Toru-sama lives?” (Lia)

Well, she was impressed with the Tatami mats before so I had expected this kind of reactions.

Lia’s looking around the bathroom restlessly in awe. I don’t even know what she is surprised with anymore.

“Well, it’s supposed to be a mansion not a dungeon though, but they’re have similar sound.” (Toru)

“What?” (Lia)

“No, there is nothing. This is the bathtub and you enter there, understand?” (Toru)

“Yes. There’s something like this inside the mansion of the royal family or aristocrats.” (Lia)

I see. This is similar with rich people’s bathroom in the world outside the dungeon.

“But is this alright? For me to use Sage-sama’s lavatory? (Lia)

“Please don’t mind it. This is a shower, do you know it?” (Toru)

Lavatory? It would be a bathroom in the old language. I mostly understood her words just like telepathy. Lia is showing an apologetic face when I ask that.

“Don’t worry. It’s normal if you don’t know about it.” (Toru)

“I-I’m sorry.” (Lia)

Lia shrunk her body further with an apologetic face.

“No, no, no, it’s alright, there is no problem at all. This is an amazing artifact made by me, Great Sage-sama. So it must be the first time for you to see something like this.” (Toru)

“Is that so?” (Lia)

“Also, there are no guests who visited this place since I started living inside the dungeon.” (Toru)

“I see. Though I don’t know how to use it, I think this is indeed an amazing artifact.” (Lia)

Lia seems to be honest girl, she isn’t accustomed of using flattery, of course it’s a good thing.

“Okay, I will teach you how to use it. If you twist this faucet, the hot water will come out. Use it to wash your body. The water has been set to just the right temperature. This is really convenient, right? It’s separated from the bathtub to keep it clean.” (Toru)

I showed Lia how the shower producing hot water. There wass no reaction from her, she was expressionless, or rather she was solidified.

I thought she would show a good reaction. Hmm? Let’s try splashing the hot water to her.

Suddenly her body make a big twitch.

“Uwah!” (Toru)

“It’s re-re-re-really hot water!! Ho-Ho-How on earth does this works?” (Lia)

Even if you asked me that, the water was heated using gas as fuel or something!?

“Let’s see, using fire magic and water magic? (Toru)

“I’ve never heard such things exist, but it’s really amazing. The sage’s usually doing artifacts research for weapon in war. Oh, I want to try it right away….” (Lia)

It seems Lia likes the bath. I also found out that a knight can be this friendly.

“Wait! Wait! Don’t be in such hurry. Do you understand my explanation? (Toru)

“What is this? I’ve never seen this kind of slick material before.” (Lia)

Slick material? Well, of course she didn’t know about plastic. Her eyes shine full of expectation.

“Fufufu, this is…. push here and soap will come out, use it to wash your body or hair. It will make your hair smooth.” (Toru)

“Oh, is that true? Can I try it?” (Tia)

“Of course, push here lightly!” (Toru)

“Wa-Wa-Wa, is this soap? It’s foaming and smells good. Is this a flowers fragrance?” (Ria)

I thought soap had existed since a long time ago. But todays soaps generated a lot foam and were put inside a plastic bottle with a push function. Moreover, it was mixed with flowers fragrance.

Lia is playing with the bubbles on her hands fascinatedly. It will be cruel if I make her waiting any longer.

“I have taught you all the basics, I will be waiting in the dining room. Take off your armor and put it outside the frosted glass. I will bring you extra clothes for change later.” (Toru)

“Thank you very much!” (Ria)

There is also a washing machine and a toilet in front of the bathroom.

She had taken off her armor inside the bathroom. For now, I will bring her a tracksuits and a T-shirt, but how about bra and panties….

Well unfortunately…. there will be a tracksuit above the T-shirt so I can’t see the curve of her breast directly. But under the T-shirt, there is nothing…. no, what I am thinking, Grandma will cry.

“Liaa~! Are you still in the bath? I brought you some clothes, is it alright if I enter?” (Toru)

“Yeaah~! It’s alright.” (Lia)

Lia seems to be able to enjoy the bath. I put the clothes on the top of her armor………



I just noticed it now. This place is strangely fashionable, there is a Japanese-style room too. This frosted glass also the real frosted glass, not a plastic-made fake.

In addition, it’s quite thin and less blurred. At the very least, rather than a silhouette of Alia Eldorax soaked in the bathtub, I can see her washing her body inside the shower.

I can see her excellent well-trained body proportions from the other side of the frosted glass…. just a little….. I’d like to see it just a little more until the last minute before I turn into the dark magician.

“Th-Then I’ll put the change of clothes over here.” (Toru)

“Yeah. Thank you very much for everything ♪” (Lia)

Her voice sounds high-spirited. It seems she’s able to have a good time over there.

I left the bathroom reluctantly while imagining Grandma smiling at me.

“Kyaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa—!!!” (Lia)

What!? Just now, Lia’s scream was heard from inside the bathroom I just left!

“What’s wrong Lia?” (Toru)

“Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa—!!!” (Ria)

I tried to call out Lia who just screamed.

Could it be a goblin appeared? Or maybe a slime? Even though she is a knight, but without her armor and sword, she is just a normal girl.

Damn it! I thought my room was a safe zone! That’s right the pick axe! Good, it’s still hanging on my belt, I’m coming!

“Liaaaaaa!!” (Toru)

I opened the frosted glass door while shouting her name. Suddenly something transparent flew onto my face.

“Coooooooooooooold!!” (Toru)

The shower is running wild like a snake while spraying cold water inside the bathroom.

“Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa—!!!” (Lia)

Lia’s scream still continued.

I found out the cause of situation while still being deprived from my sight. It’s not a goblin or a slime but a shower.

Lia was surprised because she set the amount of water from shower to the max and made the temperature control to the coldest. It’s just a guess, though. I turn off the water to stop the rampaging snake.

“Fwuh…. You see, when you want to increase the amount of water, please adjust it slowly, and then for water temperature….” (Toru)

I explained it while wiping my wet face with my hands. My field of vision slowly recovered….


What’s come to my sight was Alia Eldorax’s appearance on her birthday suit.

“It’s not what you think! That’s…. well…. this is! I just come to help you!!” (Toru)

I turned my body and tried to explain the situation to Lia behind me.

But it’s too late now….

It wouldn’t be strange if she hit me….

I don’t mind getting beaten if it can make her feel better….

But my body that had been cooled by the water from the shower wrapped in a warm feeling instead.

“I was scared……..” (Lia)

Eh? apparently I was hugged by Lia from behind.

I heard a small cry.

Perhaps the fear from that time resurfaced again…. I’m not familiar with this kind of thing so I don’t know how to comfort her.

Inside the dungeon, she’d never know when the enemy was going to attack. She was still being haunted by her fear of the near death experience inside the dungeon alone. It can’t be helped with this situation.

“Lia, are you alright?” (Toru)

“I’m sorry. Just a little more….” (Lia)

I can feel a gentle feeling form her. It would be better if she can rest soundly inside my room. That’s right, I will go to get her shield that I left at the dungeon.

Though I’m still afraid of the dungeon, but it’s alright. I’m sure I won’t meet a goblin or other monster.
