I’m level 10 .
I see . I guess my level increased because I defeated the beginner’s party .
But if that’s true then I have defeated more than 20 adventurers with level of 10 and more, is that even possible?
Well, I don’t even understand the standard of level . I feel like I should get more level up but then it’s still alright to have this much level up .
When the thief killed his companion earlier, my level didn’t increase I guess it was because it wasn’t me that defeated them .
Even so, I thought I should have asked Suratarou senpai first; however, I don’t want to return so soon and I think it’s fine for me to ask about it later .

“Well, it’s just making me anxious because I still don’t understand anything . ”

Then I looked up at the ceiling . It had cracks all over it .
Well, the ceiling is made from stone not wood . The momentum earlier even caused a crack, it was no strange thing for me to feel painful because I caused that using my head .
The increased in my defense makes my body sturdier(harder)?

“Well, I guess I need to do some experiment . ”


It was a light jump . The next try, I am prepared . Because of it, it wasn’t hurt that much .
It was increasing my movement speed, because of that even if I move at full speed and crashed, it doesn’t hurt so much .
I don’t have to worry if I crashed into something at full speed since the power behind it isn’t enhanced .
This time, let’s practice moving forward . This way I don’t have to worry about hitting the ceiling and cause some cracks .

*bam* *bam* *bam*

The body wasn’t accustomed to it at first but soon enough I can move at a decent speed .
The key point is keeping my center of gravity stable by leaning my body forward .
I also able to change my speed between normal and the fastest . This way I can move at a speed which is acceptable enough for me to control .
Depending on the situation I can move slow and fast when needed . Yes, I can move quickly . But also I need to pay attention to the road whether it’s bumpy or not .
Well, somewhat I grasped the basic trick, so I resumed exploring the first dungeon floor .
When I was moving at a fast speed I can’t see the surrounding well and I get tired easily, so I decided to walk while exploring .
*Step step**Step step*
I do not know if all dungeons are the same, but it seems that the standards are quite high here .
The size of the first room I designated to was about 5 meters square, which seems to be the smallest size room .
Every aisle seemed to be separating sections as far as I see .
It was very convenient to mark the location and know your position .

“There’s something on each section . ”

If you look carefully on the ground, there’s a small metallic steel plate embedded on it .
E9N12, that’s what written on this one . If I move one section down, it was E9N13 .
I see . I guess this is the coordinate name . I guess that I have successfully moved one block to the north .

“So, will I found the entrance at E0N0? Let's found it out . ”

*step step**step step*
Since the design of the dungeon wasn’t that complex, following the guide of the plate I soon found the direction towards E0N0 .
As I approaches close, I can hear some noise . It gets louder the closer I am there .
There’s something, because I feel uneasy, I decided to peeped at the other side quietly from the corner .
Yes, it was very convenient to be able to change your viewpoint . The limit was around 30 centimeters from my body, but it was enough since I can set starting point of my viewpoint, because of this I can peep without showing my body . (Tl note: our MC have ability to view out in 3rd person / bird view as it already happened before at 1st chapter when she examined her own body)
*shrug shrug*
There’s a large amount of adventurers, they can fill up a mountain with their number . I also can see the stairs going up, it is probably the entrance of the dungeon .
Naturally speaking, the entrance to the dungeon is supposed to be the most crowded .
There are also things that looked like stalls . It's like a festival .

“Hmm, but I didn’t meet a lot of adventurers on my way here . ”

It was so busy and bustling over here on the first floor however after I left Suratarou senpai’s room, I haven’t met any adventurers .
Apparently, most of them seemed to head eastward . Most of the adventurers were moving there and coming from there . Oh, the place I’m peeking there was placed on the north side .
Somehow, people who go there giving off ‘expert’ vibe . Their equipment is dazzling . I guess, over there is where the advanced path is located .

“Hmm . Was it analysis? If I could use that skill, I can easily found the weak guy . ”

Oh dear, it was said that monsters will die if they come out from the dungeon, I wonder if I should check if it was true .
No other choice, I turned back and move .
For the time being, I won’t move towards the south so I decided to move north . It's a pity . Let's start with just going to the north . I want to know the size of this dungeon .
*step step*
When I turned in a corner, suddenly a black haze appeared in front of me .

“What is this?

I am thinking whether to touch it or not . When I did, I feel nothing in particular, not even the feeling that the black haze is making my hands dirty .
Well, I guess it doesn’t have any effect . I think I should keep moving forward .
Well, I should try stepping in first .
Wow, I’m alright, nothing happened to me . However, it was dark everywhere I see . I can’t see anything .
I take a step back . Oh, I can see again .
Alright, I will keep moving forward just like this .
Soon I was enveloped in darkness again . After I walk for a while, I can see lights in front of me .
I think that I have walked one block, so it seems that the dark haze zone was also occupying an area with a block measurements basis .
I can also see another dark haze area one block in front of me .
Well, in this kind of place I can only move forward .
Bright . Dark . Bright . Dark .

It appears alternately . Oh, I can see someone in front of me .


Although I was surprised and screamed, I still look at the face in front of me that looked familiar .
I guess it was called a pig-man . The monster was colored pink all over of its body and I saw it earlier at the briefing room . There are five of them .
The pig-man wasn’t expecting something to come out from the dark haze so it was surprised but it soon noticed that I am also a monster .

“Hello . ”
“Oink oink oink!”

Yup, I don’t understand it .
I wonder what’s wrong with this . Even though there are a lot of fellow monster inside the dungeon, I feel lonesome .

“Well, well, let’s give it our best!”

I try raising my hand . The pig-man also raised his hand, it seemed that my intention of sending encouragement have been accepted . Yeah .
Ah, next time I have to be careful when entering and exiting the darkness zone . Suddenly there’s sign of adventurers .
It came from the north side behind the pig-man .


I have only been moving for a bit then I heard the pig-man’s cry so I turned around .
They encountered adventurers .
Three warriors acted as the front liner . The rest of the party composed of thief, priest, and mage on the back line .
The simultaneous attack from the three warriors knocked down three pig-men in a flash .

“If it’s only level 5 orcs, we can end this easily . ”
“Don’t feel complacent . After all we’re still beginners . ”
“With the first strike we take down three of them already, two monsters remaining, oh, was it three?”

Oh, I seemed to be counted in the number .
However, the remaining two pig run away quickly .
I guess Suratarou senpai is correct . I can understand why they are doing this . For monsters that are designated to guard the first floor, we can’t do anything to defeat the adventurers .

“So, what now? Mimic? Well, it’s only one level 10 monster, we can defeat it . ”

All of the adventurers are looking at me . I wonder if it’s a common sense for adventurers to first do analysis whenever they saw a monster .
Well .
It is easy to run away .
But, the pig killed earlier is my friend, we have a relationship of giving encouragement to each other . Since they are the enemy that killed him, I need to have my revenge!

Well, this is good anyway . I can also do some experiment! It's like that .
The warriors come approaching while holding a shield .
Really, it’s too much for three of you going against me alone .
Anyway, experiment number one .


I kicked the floor with full power .
I almost hit the ceiling in another moment but I am prepared .
I kicked the ceiling and move towards a warrior, a falling attack!


First of all, I crushed the first person .
Hahaha! I used the sharp corner part of the treasure box and he die .
That’s right, should this technique be named Mimic Meteor?


The adventurers around are opening their eyes wide . I rushed up and started approaching the warrior nearby .

“Take this!”

The warrior swings the sword down .


Experiment no . 2 .
It was a bit dangerous but I wanted to know whether I can withstand their attack .
It turned out that this degree of attack which come from novice warrior have no danger for me at all .
Yeah, it’s right . Since I am a treasure box, it wasn’t even hurt when I crush a human being using my body .

“Wh-wh-what’s with this monster!”

Oh, oh, they’re panic, they are panicking!
Well, my tongue was coming out like a normal mimic, I am impatient and this is my way of showing it .
Next, experiment no . 3 . I’d like to use explosive legs, but since I have something on my mind, I will split the attack between the front-liner and back liner .
It’s okay if they hit my body . It is also okay that he has his shield . I just need a single person and I want to separate him from the others .
Baiting one warrior away from the rest of the group, I achieved my goals .

“Explosive legs!”

My kick landed .
Well, If it is the same as last time … … .


The warrior has exploded
It takes around 5 seconds to explode .
Somehow I can feel that the center of the explosion is the location where my kick lands . Well, it is hard to tell about that because they exploded without anything remaining .


The remaining four adventurers ran away . They are rushing away to the darkness zone .
Oh dear . When their fellow adventurers exploded, they escape without caring for anything .


I chased after them into the darkness zone at once .


All the adventurers are petrified seeing me in front of them .

“Hahahahahah! You can’t run away from me, the mimic!”

Oh! I am playing with them .
They think they have escaped but I have long surpassed them in the darkness zone .
After that, I wait for them here .

“Explosive legs!”

I quickly get close to the warrior who is at the front and kicked .
I retreated .
Okay, five seconds .


The warrior exploded .
The thief who are nearby also received a lot of damage from the fragments of the exploding warrior .
After another five seconds .

*bang bang bang*

The remaining thief, priest, and mage all exploded at once .
Yeah . The explosion can be chained . Since the first warrior exploded far away from them, I wonder if the chain explosion is only possible if they are in close range .
It was a strange feeling, knowing that I am calm despite all of that .
Well, I’m twisted right?
