mine iron resemble ant nest.
They take over the mines that we have worked so hard to dig and turn it into their nest!”

That must be a nightmare for the dwarves.
Their previous hardships would go down the drain, and even their livelihoods were stolen.

“Iron ants usually work in groups.
They send out soldier ants as scouts to find suitable mines to nest in”
“Right now, there is only one iron ant here……!”

That means it is most likely a scout.

“That means, the ant will go back to the way it came from and inform the swarm that there is a tasty mine here.
Then the main unit of the swarm will march in.
If that happens, the whole village will be wiped out for sure!”

Eiji finally understood why Gyariko was despairing.
He once again understood.
Monsters are not only the archenemy of the human race, but the entire human species.

It is only one giant ant.

It was a messenger of the demon itself, bringing destruction to this village.

“Iron ants had destroyed our village before.
They took over the mine.
That’s why, five years ago, my family was looking for a new mine”

On the way there, they were attacked by monsters and were saved by a hero of the human race.

“After all that hard work, we finally found this place.
But they are going to take away from us again……!? Even though it’s only been a few years since we opened the mine……!?”
“I understand”

Eiji put his hand gently on Gyariko’s shoulder who was about to cry.

“Then, that means we must kill that ant here.
Before it return to inform the swarm about the existence of this mine”
“…… What are you talking about?”

Gyariko said anxiously.

“There is no way we can do that! How can a mere dwarf defeat monsters!? Or are you going to do it!? You, who is just an ordinary person!!”

“That’s right”

Eiji said strongly.

“I will do it alone.
Tell the dwarves to not interfere”
“Eh? No way……!?”

Gyariko panicked, because she didn’t think that he was really going to fight.

“Wait a minute! Are you serious!? How can you fight a monster if you’re not a hero……!?”
“I have a way to fight it”

Eiji holds up his right hand.
There was an imposing and straight iron sword held on it.

“That’s……!?”
“Sorry, I’m taking it without permission when we were leaving the workshop.
I thought I will have to use it if there is a monster”

Eiji and a sword.
The two things that should be put together is matched now.
The crowd of dwarves spontaneously split up naturally, opening the way for the warrior.
A path leading to the monster that needs to be defeated.

“…… Iron ant.
How strange.
I thought it was already an old friend after slaying thousands of them”

He gripped tightly the iron sword that Gyariko had made with all her heart.

“Just by holding a different weapon, I feel like I’m fighting you for the first time”
