Thank you Sahsahsah for the kofi!
“Why, why are you…Agh!”
Clatter! Clatter! Clatter!
Jewels were thrown into the air wildly.
Every time I moved around, he also moved his feet in my way.
He wasn’t doing anything else.
Only told me to stay still and blocked me whenever I moved.
Only after playing hide-and-seek but not really, did I notice that the atmosphere was a little strange.
What was he doing with me? Don’t tell me he was playing with me. I stopped moving and stared away at him.
If I looked at him like this, he should snap and swallow me in one bite.Why was his tail shaking? Was he ready to attack?
Every time the dragon wagged his tail, precious jewels splashed all over the place and caused vibrations, as if the walls were collapsing.
Popo came back and started to slap his leg.
“Po, po, po!”
Popo was brave, but the ferocious dragon just kicked Popo mercilessly, snorting like Popo’s moves were just like tickling.
Popo was blown away without much resistance.
“Popo! You bad……!”
When I made a loud noise without realizing it, the dragon opened his gigantic mouth.
I was surprised to see if he was trying to shoot a fire, but instead of a fire, a huge amount of jewels poured out.
No, just how much did he love jewelry to sleep with it in his mouth? Just look at this.
A pile of large, fist-sized gems poured down at my feet, slightly different from what had been piled up around. I wondered if this was a sign to suffocate in giant jewels.
“Now, what are we going to….”
With the cave shaking, I rolled down the jewel hill.
What’s wrong with you, you moody dragon!
Someone caught my arm, and pulled me back. It was Popo.
“Ugh!” A dragon right after Durahans? This was far from a B-rated movie scene! In the midst of confusion, my body moved to live. The dragon roared, close behind us, as we rushed to escape.
Boom, boom, boom, boom!
The frightening sound of his feet coming after us, caused a shudder of fear. There were cracks on the stone floor as he moved everywhere. Icicles stuck on the ceiling fell down, unable to withstand the unexpected shock. If Griffin hadn’t flown over my head and stopped them, I’d probably have become a hedgehog.
“Kang, kang! kang! Kang!”
“Baa, bang! Baaaaaaaaaang!”
It seemed that there were more than one or two unauthorized guests living in the dragon’s abode.
With the appearance of an angry dragon without any warning, unknown people jumped out of all directions and joined our escape.
At one point something grabbed me and threw me out hard. Everything seemed to move in slow motion for a moment, pieces of debris floating in the air.
A cannon flew up from the back and sent me down the slope. Not really a canon, but it did resemble one, rolling down the slope.
Then at the end of the slope, it was caught in a rock or something and forced to a halt.
It felt like my eyes were wide open.
Griffin dropped us halfway down in the thick undergrowth. It also stretched out its wings and laid down. Things that might have been half frozen or just snow, fell on my head. I managed to sit up with a cough. Popo and Griffin were all half-lying, looking completely exhausted.
“Guys, are you all right?”
I don’t think this place was okay. No matter how dark it is, is it safe here? What the hell was that dragon, in the first place…….
It was then– Griffin and Popo, who were lying on their back, suddenly rose to their feet. At the same time, a light blue light flashed through the bushes. Oh, come on, what now…
“…My lady?” Among the swept away bushes, stood a man I’d seen a lot.
“…Sir, Sir Andymion?”
Why was he here…?
Why in the world was Andymion here?
While I was just staring blankly, Andymion looked as shocked as me. His wide-open amber eyes were completely blank. I’d never seen such a surprised look.
And… after a while, another blue light flashed.
“My lady, step back…….”
“Stay away from me!”
As soon as I shouted without realizing it, Popo opened its mouth. Its ghastly mouth looked especially horrifying today. Griffin was also already flapping his big wings threateningly, flashing its green eyes.
“No! Don’t do that!” Griffin tilted its head.
Popo, who flinched for a moment, stared at me with its mouth wide open.
I shook my head imploringly. Oh my lord. What was this situation?
Andymion’s eyes showed confusion. He was stunned, and didn’t understand what happened.
“My lady, I……we are…….”
Had it just turned into a misunderstanding?
I felt like crying. I couldn’t let Andymion get eaten by Popo. That didn’t mean Popo and Griffin could die or get hurt.
I was sure that if Andymion was around here…….
Ah, I’m in trouble. The others seemed to be approaching. I turned my back from Andymion and started running recklessly to the other side. Popo and Griffin rushed after me.
I’m screwed, my civilized life is completely ruined! From now on, I can only be a female Tarzan! And then, whether I’ll turn into a personality wrecker’s toy or undergo a witch hunt, we’ll think about it later…….
“My Lady! Lady Rudbeckia!”
I didn’t stop running, but threw a glance back. The silhouettes of the damn Paladins came into my dim view.
Don’t call me, people! Well, you won’t stop doing it anyway!
If I went back like this, I’d be lucky enough to get on a ship bound for Romagna.
If I was unlucky, I’d be misunderstood that all the attacks that had happened so far, after going through all kinds of interrogations, were planned by the Vatican City and me.
I’d then return to Romagna, used as another tool for my father and Cesare, or as a tool for hunting monsters l in Britannia, and when my need is over, I’d be removed without a single mouse or a bird knowing.….
A blue sword that flew like a bolt of lightning, hit Griffin who was about to hold me. Griffin shrieked, bounced off, and fell under a tree.
Popo jumped up.
At that moment, the earth trembled, leading to an earthquake.
Thump, thump, thump.
The shock caused me to fall to the ground and sink. Until the earthquake subsided, the whole area seemed temporarily destroyed. I rubbed my teary eyes with the back of my hand. A dragon was right in front of me.
Yes, the furious dragon had landed right in front of me.
While there was an awkward silence for a moment, I thought he was staring at my face, which was stained with tears, his eyes glistening bitterly. Soon, he turned to my back, twisting his long neck.
Heaven and earth shook once again.
“Shield! Come on, Shield!”
“My lady, come this way quickly…….”
“Oh, sh*t, I’ve never seen a dragon in my life!”
“Don’t bark all at once, you f*cking pieces of shit! My lady!”
I put my head back with my arms wrapped around it. Meanwhile, the dragon, whose thick neck was bent from side to side, opened its mouth vigorously once again. Without a moment’s hesitation, a chaotic ice storm blew out toward the shaken Paladins!
It was crazy.
The light blue membrane around the paladins collided with the cold, causing cracks. The Dragon continued to give off ice attacks by changing the angle of his neck. The surrounding bushes and trees froze white and broke into pieces, and the puddles of rain quickly turned into frozen ice links.
I crept my knees and looked in Griffin’s direction.
Poor Griffin was groaning, its legs shaking in Popo’s plump arms.
“Popo, both of you, get away first!”
I didn’t know what Popo reacted to. It seemed to shake from side to side. At that very moment, the ground once again vibrated loudly, turning white everywhere. The blinding light faded away in time. Taking a few steps back, hesitating for a moment, the dragon stamped his feet, puffing out his nose in a ferocious manner, perhaps displeased by the unexpected visual terror attack.
The ground shook wildly as the ice shards flew everywhere. Leave the ground be!
My eyes grew bigger in size. My lips also parted. I expected him to be nearby, but I felt like I was temporarily out of breath when I met him like this.
It was my husband, whom I hadn’t seen in almost a week.
Izek stood in the middle of the confrontation between the dragon and the paladins, gazing at me with an incomprehensible look.
His large red eyes glowed with unfamiliar and bizarre light.
“Grrrrrrrrrr…….” Seemingly annoyed, the dragon let out a low growl as a warning.
