Chapter 14:

Ghost in a dungeon! - Chapter 14

Summoned as a Ghost in another world


I didn't let Aya go too deep into the forest since I didn't want her to encounter another monster. We aren't ready to fight any powerful monsters yet, so if we happen to find one, I don't think the same strategy as last time was going to work. And I know that Aya doesn't want to meet a monster as well. I'm not that familiar with this world, so I don't know what kind of monsters there might be out there. But I'm glad that Aya only wants to gather herbs and nothing more. But joining a guild isn't just about gathering herbs, on the way, adventurers might even encounter monsters, and some of them might even die. Yet again, I'm not sure if this applies to this world since most of the information I have is based on games and anime. While Aya was looking around, she finally noticed some herbs near the roots of a tree and immediately pulled them out of the ground. It had the same looking appearance as the herbs she gathered last time. Aya didn't have a bag with her, so she had to hold them in her hand.

Wait, now that she is holding it, maybe I can appraise it! I moved Aya's hand in front of me so I could see it better.

“Huh? Ghost-san?” After focusing on the herb I was feeling on the hand for five seconds, a transparent screen appeared with the herb's information in it.

It worked! Aya was still confused about what I was doing. Wait, can't she see the information near the herb she's holding? I wanted to test this skill a bit more, so I took control of Aya's body and went near a small rock that could fit in her hand.

“G-ghost-san? What are you doing?” She couldn't understand why I was acting like this. But I didn't have any method of communication to explain it to her. After five seconds of holding the rock in my hand, the skill worked once again.

With this skill, I can find out anything I want about any kind of object around me. I threw the rock away since I didn't need it anymore.

“Wha?” And Aya, who couldn't understand why I was doing this.

*Clack*

But as I was on my way to walking away, I heard the sound of the rock I threw hit something. That rock wasn't that big, so I wasn't expecting to make any kind of sound like that. Did it hit something?

“Where are we going?” Aya asked as I was using her body to go towards where I threw the rock. But since I wanted to say something to her, I pointed my finger in the direction I was going. But after passing through some bushes, there was a pathway made of rocks that led to an entrance.

“Why are we-- Oh, you find more herbs! Thank you, Ghost-san!” Aya reacted the moment she saw the herbs which were near the entrance. I only wanted to check out the sounds that came from the rock I threw, but I never expected there to be more herbs around here. But what's even weirder was that the entrance was made out of stone. After gathering all the herbs around here, she noticed some more herbs inside that stone entrance.

“There are even more inside here.” I won't allow Aya to go too deep inside this place since I wasn't sure what this place was. Aya started gathering the herbs she could find around.

“mh hm mhh mh” Usually, young girls would get scared from this kind of place, but Aya seemed unaffected by this. She was even humming some kind of song happily as she was gathering the herbs. But after she pulled out the last herb around here, she got up, ready to leave this place. She had more than enough herbs on her hands. And things were going really well... until… The ground started shaking a little causing Aya to fall down on her butt.

“Aah!” A stone-like wall was sliding, blocking the entrance of this place. The sun rays were entirely blocked by this kind of stone door, which shook the ground as it moved. But why did it close now? What was the cause of it? Was it because we entered inside?

“What happened?” She asked as she was trying to get up. I also got out of her body and tried passing through the stone door. I could get out of this place without any problems, but Aya would still be stuck inside. From the inside, it looked like the entrance was never there now that it was closed, so even if someone passed by, they wouldn't be able to find this place.

What do I do? Is the only option for us to continue going deeper inside? I went back inside this place, finding Aya who was crying. But the moment she saw me passing through the door, she rushed towards me and hugged me really tight.

“Ghost-san! I thought you l-left me as well! Why did you leave?” I pat her head in order to calm her down a little. Well, I would be scared as well if I had gotten stuck somewhere where there is no light.

“Please don't *sniff* leave me like that again.” She said as she looked at me. I wasn't sure what to do in this kind of situation, so I just gave her a smile. Her sweet-looking face kept looking at me as she didn't want me to go anywhere else.

Oh, right, what if I try this? I thought as I possessed Aya once again. She didn't react or say anything. She just felt relaxed as if me possessing her was a normal thing to do. I used Aya's hand and touched the walls of this cave-like place.

Wait, huh?

Dungeons are underground tunnels and rooms filled with traps and monsters where anyone can die easily if they aren't careful. This is the kind of dungeon I know. But I really hope the same thing doesn't apply in this kind of world. I got out of Aya's body and looked at her.

“Ghost-san?” She called out to me as she was looking at me.

I got near her and placed my hand on her cheek. Her face softened and became a little red as she was looking at me. I don't know what kind of danger awaits us in this kind of place, but I won't allow anything to harm Aya!
