In the afternoon of the same day, James called me over.
We met at the guest mansion, inside the usual meeting room.
“…Is it really true that you have gained the ability to use Sacred Magic?”
The first thing that came out from his mouth is something that’s difficult to answer.
This is troubling.
Right now, I have to keep certain things a secret because of Princess Scarlet.
Just how much can I say, I wonder…
“Her highness is still too young.”
“Giving you that many gold coins will only invite others to pay attention to you.”
“Is subjugating an Evil Dragon worth that much?”
“That much is appropriate for your deed. However, giving those rewards, especially for the feat of subjugating that dragon which is one of the greatest achievements a noble can get, is not supposed to be handled by the princess. It should be reported to His Majesty and he should be the one to give the rewards himself.”
“But her highness chose to do it by herself instead of returning to the royal capital. The nobles will probably be suspicious.”
Now that he said it, it makes sense that both father and Albrevit had aimed for this achievement.
Certainly, there’s no way that such a huge reward will go unnoticed.
If it’s like this, there’s no reason to keep quiet about it anymore so I answered his question.
“Yes, I’ve learned several Sacred Magic.”
“Can you show it to me?”
I raised my right hand having the dragon emblem which works as a replacement for the grimoire.
I chanted, raised my magic power, and gathered Radon’s power.
After 5 minutes, it activated.
Low-grade Sacred Magic [All Clear].
Just like this morning, the same divine light lit up.
James, who observed right from the beginning, showed genuine curiosity.
“Hou… what kind of magic is that?”
“It’s called [All Clear]. It will erase all [Abnormal States].”
“[Abnormal State]… you mean petrification, poisons and the like, huh?”
“All of them?”
“All of them.”
“…such absurd magic. No wonder Sacred Magic is called the work of god.” James admired the magic.
The recreation of the god’s work. To be honest, that’s hard to believe.
“By the way, have you ever heard the tale about the war of 3 dragons ?”
“War of 3 dragons? Not really.”
“It says that there was a time when 3 types of dragons had waged a war, and each one has enough power to cause a catastrophe.”
“In that tale, one of them managed to win over the other two, and the decisive factor for its victory is
the use of Sacred Magic. The magic to recreate god’s miracle.”
“That same Sacred Magic?”
“And then, it seems that that dragon had interacted with humans. It founded a kingdom of sacred magic users, and that’s how our kingdom came to be.”
“Haa… I see.”
I’ve heard a lot of legend like this as a folk tale but I still can’t believe all of this.
“You still can’t take all of this, huh?”
“Well, that’s to be expected. 3 types of dragons fighting each other… the one left alive mixed itself with humans and founded a kingdom…
it’s a really good fairy tale.”
“By the way, when I said that the dragon mixed itself with humans, what do you think happened?”
“That’s… the obvious way is that they got married and have a child together?”
“Umu, normally, that’s the case. Until yesterday, anyone who hears the legend will think like that one hundred percent.”
“Yes, but, um… until yesterday?”
Did something change?
“That’s the thing.”
James pointed his finger at my right hand.
“You also mixed yourself with a dragon, right?”
I see, you can also see it that way.
Radon had entered my body.
We have become one.
It can also be called as a ‘mix’.
And so, it resulted in giving me the ability to use Sacred Magic.
“Right now, you are the living legend of our country.”
“I, I see.”
“And that dragon that we call as the Evil Dragon… it’s possible that he was the dragon who founded our country… and he’s probably our ancestor.”
“The ancestor… was sealed as a dragon?”
James nodded lightly.
It seems that this is bigger than what I expected.
“From now on, there are two things to worry about. First is the Hamilton house. Your father’s household will be removed.”
“I see… since the achievement that we thought we have is originally not an achievement after all…”
“Well, it’s not a big problem. The problem is the other one.”
“W, what is it?”
“The dragon will probably be angry, and will think of taking revenge on this kingdom.”
“A… I see. Even though we are cooperating, it looked like he was trapped against his will.”
“That’s the problem…”
Having said that, James kept his gaze on me.
I don’t know why he kept looking but after a few seconds, it dawned on me.
He wants to confirm whether Radon is angry or not.
I turned my consciousness inside me.
It didn’t say anything but its feelings reached me.
I’m not angry… in the first place, I didn’t think anything from it.
Then I remembered what Radon had told me.
“I don’t really care about human’s criterion. If more than 100 years had passed, surely, the way they call me will also change…”
“That’s what Radon had told me.”
“More than that, it’s interested in my future.”
After looking at me, James laughed.
“It means that you are this kingdom’s savior. It can be said that the kingdom was unknowingly saved by you.”
That’s how things will be?
“That achievement… it’s bigger than any achievement there is, you know?”
James kept on laughing.
But his eyes are serious.
Translation and Editor Notes:
Is the author living inside a cave? Can he come up with better names? Channel your inner chuuni author-san!
And also, MC claimed that he never heard it then said he heard it. What is this? 🙁
Forgive me if the conversation between James and Liam has a lot of nonsense, believe me, I tried :'(.
This chapter is a pain in the butt, the words are jumbled up, and it’s really hard to make sense of, and it’s full of pointless details and words.
