Alchemy BOX c33
In the dining hall of an abandoned inn…. It was now transformed into a chic café.
The floor was covered in carpet, and the dusty tables were now covered by white table cloths.
An expensive looking tea set sat on top and cookies were served too.
All of this came out of a small bag.
Ain: “Is that…...an Item Box?” Eriol: “Yeah, that’s right. This is something my grandfather found while he was inside a Dungeon. I received this from him on my 15th birthday.”
If it’s the Prince’s grandfather, it must have been the previous King, right?” The Royal Family goes exploring inside Dungeonsー?
All of his attendants received tea as well, and we all finally got to relax and take a break.
Eriol: “So, about the main topic I wanted to speak to you about, Lou Quain. Have you noticed what’s happening on this island?”
He suddenly popped the question at me.
What’s happening on this island……? I wonder what he’s referring to?
Ain: “Are you talking about the Pirates?” Eriol: “Ohー yes, there was that too. Last night, I heard the story from him and his crew. As a representative of the Kingdom, I would like to convey my gratitude. Thank you.”
Ain: “OーOh no. Please raise your head, Prince Eriol.”
Eriol: “No no no. If someone is kind to you, I was taught from a very young age to always convey my gratitude. I cannot turn away from my upbringing.”
WーWould a Royal Noble really teach thatー?!
ThーThe Royalty here are very different from what I imagined. I thought they would be more...you know....be very proud of themselves, brag a lot, and look down on people. That was the image I originally had.
Ain: “BーBut what about representing the Tronstad Kingdom….?” Eriol: “Oh, yes. That ship’s cargo ー it was something our Royal Family purchased from the Western Continent. It was to celebrate my engagement with the Andestan Princess. That ship was carrying that cargo.”
Ain: “Ohhh, well then…..I guess that would be really importanーーengaged to the Andestan Princess?!”
I think there were 2 Princesses. One was about 20 years old? I think the other was younger than me.
Eriol: “It’s with the younger Princess.”
As if reading my thoughts, the Prince laughed as he spoke.
Eriol: “I say engagement, but the actual marriage will be in the distant future. The Princess is still underage.”
Ain: “I thought I remembered the Princess being younger than me. Since we both just reached adulthood, if she’s younger than us, that would make her underage.”
Although it’s hard to feel like an adult at 15.
But the “happenings” the Prince was talking about was not about the Pirates then.
Then what is it?
Eriol: “The Dungeon ーー were you aware of the one on this island?” Ain: “I know of…….wait, are you talking about the revival of the Dungeon?”
Eriol: “So you do know. So the Dungeon on this Island did indeed revive?” So he came to investigate that.
From what the Prince was telling me, this island belonged to the Tronstad Kingdom’s Territory in the past.
Oh crap. That’s not good. I landed on this island without anyone’s permission.
Eriol: “Right now, it is part of the Andestan Territory. Although it’s not being managed by anyone though.”
Ain: “Oh, is this Andestan then?”
Eriol: “I believe it was about 15 years ago. My uncle welcomed an engagement with the Admiral of the Andestan Navy, the Duke of Appunto’s daughter.”
Ain: “Wait, did they offer the engagement for the rights to this island?”
The Prince nods.
Oh……….that means, they were letting the Pirates use this island since then.
I decided to show Prince Eriol the secret contract I found.
Although he was delighted at first, took it up, and read with curious interest, his expression gradually darkened as he read further.
The Knight and one of the Mages, the two eldest of the group also read the document alongside the Prince, and their shoulders began to tremble.
“HーHow dare they! They married off one of the Duke’s daughters so they could allow the Pirates to use this island?!”
The one who slammed the table with his fist wasn’t the Knight, but the Mage.
Eriol: “Well, hold on, Royce. My uncle and aunt seem to be very content with their marriage. There’s a good chance that my aunt was not aware of the circumstances.”
“That would be likely. Looking at those two, it would be hard to imagine that it was all arranged for this purpose. The one who committed this crime is most likely the Duke of Appunto alone.” Royce: “Unforgivable! The Admiral tasked to protect the seas cooperated hand in hand with Pirates that were ravaging our ocean?!”
The Mage was more hot-headed, and the Knight remained calm and cool…..it was an odd sight.
Eriol: “We are getting off topic. So you know that the Dungeon here was resurrected. Was that since you landed on the island? Orーー”
Okay, what should I do?
If I explain about the Dungeon’s Resurrection, I would have to explain about my [Alchemy BOX].
The [Alchemy BOX] is a [Talent] of mine that can analyze, combine, reshape, and develop materials.
I don’t think it’ll be to my disadvantage to speak about it.
Eriol: “I want to investigate why this Dungeon was able to resurrect in order to resurrect another specific Dungeon.”
Ain: “To resurrect another Dungeon? Why would you want to do that?” The Prince nodded with solemn resolve burning in his eyes.
Eriol: “It is to help save my younger sister who has fallen ill. In that Dungeon, if you defeat the Boss Monster at the lowest level, a medicinal flower blooms and is said to be able to cure any illness.”
Ain: “But that Dungeon’s core was destroyed?”
“Yes. It was a Dungeon that appeared on the largest continental route that ties our country to others.”
So travelers and merchants, and the local resident’s safety was prioritized, and as soon as the Dungeon appeared, the Kingdom determined immediately that it had to be removed.
That was about 100 years ago, and the Dungeon was conquered a month after it was born.
At the time, the top Adventurer Parties tackled the Dungeon together and was able to swiftly destroy the Dungeon Core in record time.
And once the Boss was defeated and the mission completed ーー one flower bloomed.
“One of the Adventurers decided to take it home, but as soon as he touched the nectar, all the wounds on his body was instantly restored.”
Ain: “Just by touching it….”
“But the flower wilted within a few hours, and from its description, after comparing it to past recordsーー”
Ain: “...the result?”
By the way, the explanation was being done by the Knight.
I would have thought that the Mage would be more excited about explaining these kinds of things…..
“We found out that it’s one of the main components to make an Elixir.”
Ain: “Ohh, an Elixirー ……….AN ELIXIR?!”
THE STRONGEST FANTASY POTION APPEARSーー!!
