Chapter 40 .
40 Spider vs Bee ③
For the time being, I was able to secure food .
When thinking about the size of the bee’s body, I can survive from starvation for a few days .
It’s not necessary to worry about my stamina now .
Then, the choices of action increase .
The most realistic one will be keep hunting the bees with the same method until I level up .
I can earn experience steadily and safely rather than exploring .
Another idea is to expand the nest more .
Towards the top .
I don’t want to explore the bottom area here .
It’s not the problem whether it’s possible or not .
No way .
Earth Dragon is scary .
That’s why, I want to crawl up back to the original passage .
To do that, I must somehow dodge the bees .
I would become the bee’s prey if I climb the wall simply, so I must think about some measures .
Therefore, the idea that I can think of was to extend my nest to the top .
Calling it an idea or just basically bulldozing through .
Un, it’s a terrible brute force even if I say so myself .
But, I can’t think of another method to return to the top .
Of course, there are various demerits too .
First of all, making the nest consumes a lot of stamina .
Moreover, I need to make the nest to climb the wall to the top unlike the usual one .
Because the situation is different, I don’t know how much stamina I will use .
It will become a considerably large-scale nest making and with the bee I have now, my stamina won’t last long .
It’s necessary to replenish it somehow .
Besides, I might end up fighting against the bee .
Though now I’m overlooked by them, but if I extend my nest upwards, I will be invading the bee’s main territory .
It’s an airspace violation .
Will those guys overlook me?
The worst, several hundreds will attack and if I’m unlucky, the large army of bees of several thousand will attack all at once . It might become such nightmare-like situation .
As expected, the nest won’t be able to defend against such a number .
What I should be cautious of is not only the bee .
At present, there’s no other monster except the bee that enter the bottom of this pit .
Only the snake and Earth Dragon at the beginning .
But, if that Earth Dragon appears suddenly . . . .
Although I hide in the rock shade last time, I will stand out if I expand my nest .
It’s the end if it’s curious about it .
Even now, I’m still scared that the Earth Dragon might come or not .
That’s why, if I succeed, I can escape from this very dangerous zone, but the risk of the strategy is high .
But, I don’t have any other choice .
Perhaps, there’s one but it didn’t come into my mind .
Therefore, I resolved myself and start making the nest!
First of all, the foundation .
At first, to build a house, I must make a strong foundation .
It’s not an exaggeration to say that the result of the house is decided by the foundation .
A rock suitable for such a foundation is here!
The first rock which I escaped to .
The rock enshrined close to the wall having the height around 7 meters and the width around 5 meters . It’s considerably large .
I will make this rock as the foundation and expand the nest .
The completed nest is made between this rock and the wall and a little protruded sideways .
First of all, I block the gap between the rock and the wall on the other side .
And I attach a thread to the wall diagonally from the top of the rock .
I connect the rock and the wall with that thread as a core .
With this, the foundation is completed .
After that, I just need to expand the nest to the top slowly .
Recovering stamina by eating the bee and continue working .
On the middle of working, the group of bees looked here several times, but as expected, it didn’t attack .
It seems that I’m still in the range that can be overlooked .
I stopped the work on this day after I finished eating the bee and I went to sleep .
Fifth day .
I think that the pain has softened somehow .
HP is as usual, still 6 .
My skill level of the “Pain Alleviation” didn’t increase while I was sleeping because I didn’t recover .
It’s probably so .
It’s wonderful that there are few pains .
After all, thanks to “Pain Nullity”, I was able to move without any problems, but as expected, there’s a huge difference between there’s pain and there’s no pain .
No, it’s not like the pain has gone completely and my wound was not cured yet .
It’s quite comfortable .
Because I never suffered such a serious wound before when I was a human .
The most painful experience I had when I was a human was when my little toe hit the corner of the door .
That was painful .
But, I can’t compare it with the serious wound on my back .
The work advances smoothly because I’m in a good mood .
In the middle, a lost one came close .
But, the group is relatively near too .
With the meaning of experiment, I will meddle with the lost one .
Whether the group will react for the lost one or not .
If the group reacts, I will withdraw immediately deep into the nest .
If it doesn’t react, I will go as it is .
I swing the Kumorning Star .
That reminds me, the skill called “Concentration” that I acquired previously, is it a skill that only increase the ability to concentrate?
Well, it won’t have great effects in level 1 and even if it has a different effect, I just leave it if I can’t use it .
Concentrate . Concentrate .
The concentration is disturbed when I was thinking of “Concentration” . What is this!
I aim well and, Here!
Ah, it hit .
Isn’t that amazing?
Though I thought I can’t hit it, it has hit 2 times in a row .
In a physical fitness test of softball throw, me, who got the lowest score in my school year .
Oops, I was surprised and I didn’t see the movement of the group .
The group was there .
No movement .
So there’s no counterattack even if I attack a lost one .
Aren’t they heartless?
Or is it that it can’t live in the wild if it’s not that strict?
Well, either way, it’s convenient that it doesn’t attack .
With this, I can hunt the lost one without reserve .
I recover the bee that I caught with an overjoyed face .
I finish it off with my “Poison Fang” .
