I Found Tiny Dungeon That Can Only Produce Metal Slime – Chapter 20

Chapter 20: The Golden Magic Ore

When Yuma came home from school, he was lying on his bed and playing with his phone.

Search the website of the jewelry store and call the number listed.

‘Yes, this is Tanabe Precious Metal Shop.’

A nice lady answered the phone.

“Hello, I’d like to have my gold appraised.”

‘Hi, yes, it’s a gold appraisal. Would you like to sell?’

Yeah, I’d sell it if I could.

Yuma was ready to sell the ‶Gold Magic Ore‶ that he dropped. If it has zero mana, it’s no different from ordinary metal.

It’s not yet decided that it’s gold, but it weighs 20 grams, so it must be worth 140,000 if it’s pure gold. This must be a gift from God.

That’s what Yuma thought and he wanted to exchange it for cash right away.

I understand. The price of gold is going up right now, so I think it’s a good time to sell.

“Okay… So how do I actually sell it?”

‘If you have your ID and something to prove where the gold came from…’ By the way, is the gold stamped?

“Marked”? What’s that?

It is like a mark that shows the value of an item. When we purchase an item, we check it first.

“Would they buy it without it?”

‘No, we’ll buy other items as long as we can find out the purchase history.

I see. By the way, is it okay for a minor to sell alone?

‘You’re a minor… That’s a no-no. We’ll need the consent of a parent or guardian, and the only way we can confirm that is if you come with us to the store…”

“So, right~?”

Yuma said, “I’ll talk to my parents.” and hung up the phone.

I knew it. I knew it.

You’re disappointed and your shoulders slump. If I told my parents I wanted to sell the gold, they’d say, “Where’d you get all that stuff?” They’d ask me.

There is no such thing as an ‘imprint’ or ‘certificate’ on gold dropped from demons.

I sigh and wonder if it’s realistically impossible to sell.

“Let’s use it… I don’t know what kind of powers we’ll get.”

If the mana index is zero, as it is with ‶Black Ore‶, you should be able to use it.

Yuma picked up a wet wipe and carefully wiped the demon ore. If there is any mana in it it will just come out in the form of feces.

“Okay!” and you take it in your mouth and pour it down with water.

I gulped it down and waited a while.

“Hey, you’re gonna be okay, right?”

I know I can use black magic ore, but I’ve never had gold magic ore before today.

I’m sure it won’t hurt you, but I’m still worried. You’re not going to turn into a gold mine, are you?

My abdomen is burning up thinking about it.

“I’ve got it! I’ve got it! I’m getting this feeling!”

A rush of electricity through my body. Consciousness slips away.

I’ve experienced the changes that occur when I take in magic ore many times before. I’m sure you’ve taken it into your body this time too.

When the strange sensation subsides, Yuma looks around his hands and body.

“No change… Nothing. Are you gonna woge again?

Yuma puts his whole body into it and says, “Change! Change! He tries to change.

His body turned black and he turned metallic as usual but nothing more happened. This is the effect of the black magic ore.

“That’s strange. I don’t know what kind of change has happened.”

After that, I tried many other things, but I still couldn’t figure out anything.

“Oh, man… I should’ve thought of a way to sell it.”

Yuma regretted it a little and went to sleep that day.

The next day–

You head languidly to the garden, pat Mamezou on the head, and slay the metal slime.

The fact that the ‘Golden Demon Ore’ had no effect even after a night’s sleep was a shock to Yuma, and he was depressed.

You sigh and try to get out of the hole, but you find the black magic ore.

“Oh! You dropped it.”

It’s been two months… I picked up the magic ore and went back to my room.

The next day, when he defeated the metal slime again, the magic ore dropped again. Yuma was quite surprised, since he had never had two drops in a row.

The next day, another magic ore drops.

That’s not right… It was a clear anomaly. Yuma remembers the gold ore he swallowed.

“I didn’t think…”
