h was a common occurrence.

“Well, is everyone all right?”

Among those who had escaped from the danger zone, it was Eiji who first had the leeway to check on the safety of everyone.
He counted the familiar faces of the dwarves, who must have been out of breath from running at full speed, as they slumped down.

“…… Good, everyone is here”
“Thanks to you I’m saved, Eiji”

The one who said that was senior dwarf who had broken his leg at the start of the escape and had to be carried by Eiji.

“If you hadn’t carried me, I wouldn’t have escaped from the collapse and would have been buried alive.
You saved my life”
“I just did the right thing”

Compared to other races, dwarves have higher muscle strength and endurance skills, but they have lower agility skills.

Therefore, they were running faster than their limits to escape from the collapse, so they were exhausted.

“In this kind of situation, it is advantageous to human who have average skills in all areas.
You can handle any situation”
“I’m just a jack of all trades.
In a situation like this, goblins or elves with high agility skills would have been able to escape more easily”
“You’re an idiot.
Forget about goblins, but there is no way the beautiful elves will come to an underground like this!”

The sound of laughter echoed through the narrow tunnels.

“Is it something you can laugh about!!”

A proclamation came in to the dwarves group.
Moreover, the voice of the proclamation was very high-pitched and sweet-sounding.
It wasn’t surprising because the one who made that proclamation was a captivating beautiful woman.
She was young enough to be called a girl rather than a woman.

“Miss Gyariko……!?”

However, the boorish dwarves froze their body at that girl.
The girl’s name was Gyariko, and she was the daughter of the chief who manage this entire mining village.
Moreover, she was also in charge of overseeing the tunnels area.
In other words, the person in charge had just arrived, and this made them nervous.
Naturally, Eiji also stuck his arms to his torso and stood upright.

“The cave-in is a major incident, you know!! You can’t just laugh it off because no one died! Who dug the tunnel!?”
“Hiiiii!?”

One of the dwarves, who had been exhausted, shrank back.
That dwarf must have hit underground water while digging the tunnel and caused the collapse.

“I told you to raise your mining skills up on a regular basis to avoid accidents like this, right!?”

With『Danger Detection』which can be learned with a mining skill value of 500 or higher, it is possible to foresee and avoid underground water veins and gas reservoirs that are buried underground.

In other words, the dwarf who was digging in the lead this time had not reached 500 in drilling skill.

“W-Well, Miss……!”

Eiji, unable to just watch, tried to intercede.

“It can’t be helped, because the tunnel area is also short of manpower.
It’s impossible to arrange the vanguards with those who have enough skills”
“After all, they even hire a human like you!”

Gyariko’s strong sarcasm hit Eiji.
Because of that, Eiji was speechless.

“…… Well, fine”

With a sigh, Gyariko’s furious facial expression returned to a cute, girlish one.

“Anyway, it’s a good thing no one died.
The tunnel has been buried by the collapse, so the team here will disperse and help with the other excavation.
Anyone can do it until the digging skill value exceeds 500″
“Y-Yes……”
“Also……!”

Gyariko’s gaze turned to Eiji.

“You too, thank you for helping our miners.
You’re a great help”
“Ehー……?”

Eiji couldn not respond quickly enough to her sudden appreciation and let out a strange sound.

“But, don’t be full of yourself, all right.
It’s your fault for causing the collapse in the first place.
I won’t give you credits just because it turns out well!!”

Gyariko said that with angry voice and left.
Did she think of Eiji as her enemy or something?
