Dwarf Village in the Refrigerator - Chapter 1: Prologue
Chapter 1: Prologue
“Why is the store so humid and unpleasant? You didn’t turn on the Air Conditioner? There are no guests.”
It’s the opposite case. The air conditioner was off because there were no guests.
“Yes it was getting dark so I turned it off. Its still a little hot. Ha Ha.”
I replied with a normal smile.
The grumbling man is the landlord and I am his tenant.
“Only when the customers come in to the building can you make a living. Tsk tsk. Try something new as well. How com there are only the low-level potions and arrows?”
“That’s the basic thing……”
“Phew, yes, I know you will be able to handle it on your own. Well you know tomorrow is the day to pay your rent right? Don’t be late!”
He has been wasting time since a while so this is what he actually want to say.
“Yes, the payment won’t be late.”
“ I am worried that you will go out of business.”
The old man was gone. I know how he feels but I am a little disappointed.
I have never been late to pay monthly rent for the last six years.
Well even if the business hasn’t been that good these days, it has been bad as well.
“Should I close the store?”
A display stand and a old TV on the wall. That’s all there is. My grandfather passed it to me. After losing my parents to a Dungeon, my grandfather was my only family.
I held on to it because I didn’t want to let go of his memory but now it seems I can see a end to it.
“…I was able to successfully attack a Fifth grade dungeon. The boss, Huoron is a plant type monster which swings its branches like a tentacle.”
As the old man left, the audio of the TV entered my ears. This is a news about the attack on a Fifth Grade Dungeon in Korea for the first time. This news has been on all channel past few days.
A burly man with full iron armour on his body, without even a sweat, he preached about the greatness of his Guild.
“I envy him.”
I used to dream of being a Hunter. Their wealth and honour. The superhuman abilities to not break a sweat even in extreme heat. I envy it.
It’s frustrating to continue watching it. I pressed the removed to turn off the TV.
It’s not turning off.
What? Is the remote controller broken?
The led lights blink each time I press it.
I tapped the TV power button with my fingers.
There was smoke coming out of it. I quickly unplugged it.
My stomach is boiling hot. I went out of the store and it’s a little better outside.
“Its not windy.”
Lets take a walk. I locked the store and walked around the neighbourhood. The Hunter Association building caught my eye in the distance.
There was also a large shopping mall with colourful glowing signboards. That was the reason that only flies visit my store.
As I looked at it, my scalp was dripping with sweat. I should go back.
“Since I am out, lets get some milk.”
For years, I have been having cereal for breakfast. If I run out of milk then I will starve next morning.
I went to the supermarket. I opened the refrigerator and got some cool air.
I picked up the milk before the owner can notice it.
I headed for the counter as something caught my eyes.
[Super special Sale!] [ 6 cans of bear in 1 pack! Only for 5000 won!]
A phrase was written with a marker with a pile of beer on the back stand. It’s really cheap. Is it a bad product and they trying to bait customers?
I finally bought the beer. I don’t usually drink much but I was particularly attracted today. Maybe its because of the hear.
It went back way faster.
Lets take a cold shower, have a cold beer and then go to bed.
I headed towards the room behind the store.
A bed, a desk, a computer and an old two-door refrigerator in the corner. That’s all I have.
I put the milk in the refrigerator and then unwrapped the paper to put in the beer.
“It’s a little warm.”
It wasn’t cold because it was on the stand. Tsk, I didn’t think about it.
I thought of a desperate measure while clicking my tongue.
“Let’s put it in the freezer.”
As I got out of the shower, I thought about the some ice in the freezer. I opened it.
The beer can fell out of my hand because of the amazing scene in front on my eyes.
‘What the hell…”
A tiny creature with two knuckles were wandering in the freezer.
“What the hell is this…!”
And before I could properly express my doubts, I was left speechless because of a message displayed in my mind.

This is kinda like a teaser since I found this one unique and got curious. If you want this to be translated regularly then please leave a comment and I will continue I guess.
