Chapter 16: Martina and the Dragonmancer 6
“You’re so tricky and unpredictable…!”
At the same time, Barvel finished off one of the fire dragons.
After all, he is one of the Eight Demon Generals… He fought without a moment’s hesitation.
” That’s the rest! “
Two flying dragons soar through the skies!
“”sonic boom! “”
Both this old man and Barvel send shockwaves into the sky…
The flying dragons pivot and avoid the “sonic boom”!
“Huh…?! Wow, they’re quick!”
“Then we’ll get them directly…!”
Giant wings appear on Barvel’s back and spread wide.
With a flap, his feet leave the ground.
“You can fly?!”
“Yes…! The wings were just tucked away. Now get on!”
He points at his shoulder.
This old man jumps up and climbs onto Barvel’s shoulders.
Barvel soars into the sky as his wings flap wildly.
In a flash, he catches up to one of the flying dragons and grabs it by the wings.
“On my mark!”
This old man leaps onto the dragon’s back and strikes it in the neck squarely.
He cuts the thick dragon’s neck with a strangely soft touch.
Before my body loses balance and crashes down, I kick back, somersaulting back to land on Barvel’s shoulder.
On the way to The Royal Capital, I’ve gotten used to it enough that I can move my body exactly as I imagined.
“Well, that’s a good move! Let’s get the other one!”
As Barvel approaches, the other rises in a big flap.
He tries to pass this old man over, but…
“Don’t let him escape!”
The face of the flying dragon appears in front of this old man when he performs an air summersault.
and swings his sword down at it head-on.
A single vertical red line ran from the flying dragon’s face.
And in the next instant, the flying dragon’s body split into two pieces and it fell to the ground.
“F*ck… The man who defeated me. That’s how it should be…”
Barvel caught the feet of this old man and took him by the shoulder again.
“Should we keep flying directly to the royal castle? Then we can ignore our opponents on the ground.”
“Yes… but first, let us gather the enemies we’ve defeated!”
Dragon scales are difficult to work with, but they can be used to create high-quality weapons and armor.
You can have them made by a craftsman or sell them to the guild for a good price.
There is no reason not to collect them since it will be over soon.
“Oh, man, hurry up.”
Barvel puts this old man down in a tone of annoyance, but he lets this old man down with an open mind.
After recovering the dragons we had killed, I was once again picked up by Barvel and advanced over the royal capital.
The streets of the Royal Capital below are teeming with dragons.
Despite their large numbers, it appears that the damage to the city’s buildings is minor.
“I’m guessing because Dormina told them to. They appear to have put the city on the defensive.”
“…I wonder if they’re doing this for a purpose.”
“Yeah, I’m sure of it. It’s not a good one.”
“But it’s good that there’s less damage—Tina won’t have to worry about it later.”
Before we left, His Majesty Elfin informed me that human casualties were still low.
Tina had apparently warned the people around her before the strange thing happened, so they could leave while the area around her was sealed off with wards.
However, the damage is minor at this point, but we have no idea what is going to happen in the future.
Because the situation came up so quickly, the raiding parties may lose a lot of people, and the people who were forced to leave the capital may not be able to make it through the long evacuation.
Food shortages and diseases can also be considered prevalent.
The sooner we can put an end to this anomaly, the better.
With this old man’s hands, he will do it today.
It’s the very least this old man can do for Tina, who has waited far too long.
“Why do you care so much? Did you say it for a reason?”
“Well, it’s just a silly old story.”
This old man then tells him briefly about his history and relationship with Tina, as well as how he has been steadily improving his [storage] skills over the last few decades.
“Sniffle! Sniffle! Uwu~uu…! That brings tears to my eyes…!”
Surprisingly, when he hears this old man’s story, Barvel bursts into tears.
