After acquiring all the middle-grade spirits, I remembered the things that I have been holding off for ages.
Once again, I summoned [Item Box]. I took out 2000 pieces of Jamille Gold Coins and placed it in front of Asuna and Jodi-san.
“Uwa! What an amazing amount of gold coins! What’s this for?”
“It’s your share.”
“Share… is it?”
Asuna froze in place and Jodi-san showed a troubled face.
“Yeah. It’s for the Ladon case. There’s a possibility that he’s not really an evil dragon.”
“What do you mean?”
I told them about what Princess Scarlet had told me the other day.
About her request to keep this matter a secret and the 3000 pieces of gold coins in exchange for our silence.
“This money is given to me as a sort of bribe to keep the fact about Ladon a secret so that it won’t spread to others. That’s why I think that you two should also have a share in this.”
Partly because of this, I made sure not to spend more than a thousand gold coins for my house.
“Eh… don’t say something like that~. We don’t know anything in the first place.”
“Yes. More than that, we are also bound by a contract with you, Liam-kun.”
“Yes, that’s right. Instead of this, it’s better to just give us a simple order, right?”
“This and that are different. Please just take this on my behalf.”
I replied to them and strongly pushed the gold coins towards them.
“Alright… I will take it. But, you keep it.”
“Yes, that’s for the best.”
“Me? I’m keeping it?”
“This much… there’s no way I can take it back home. I mean, it’s more dangerous if I leave it there, right?”
“I agree. If I leave this amount of money at home, it’ll be robbed the next day. I’m sure of it.”
“That’s why, Liam, we will entrust it to you. I mean, there’s no way that someone can even eavesdrop in a place like this. That’s why I’m asking you…”
Asuna smiled brightly.
Well, she got a point.
“Okay, I will keep this on me then. Just tell me when you want to use it.”
“Yeah, I will!”
“Thank you, Liam-kun.”
Asuna and Jodi-san smiled happily.
After both of them went home, I was left alone in my house.
So I decided to train the middle-grade summoned spirits and the Ladon Juniors during my free time.
It really makes me happy knowing that I get to learn new summoning magic.
It will take time to master the middle-grade summon spirits but just the fact that it’s now inside the magicpedia gave me goosebumps.
While I was busy in training, a voice called out…
(O’human with a big soul.)
It’s the calm voice of a dragon.
I didn’t think any of it the first time I heard it but when I repeatedly heard it, I can’t help but to think that he might not be an evil dragon.
(This is interesting, O’human with big soul…)
“Interesting? Nevermind that… aren’t you getting tired of calling me that way? Just using my nickname will be more comfortable, I think.”
I can feel Ladon’s bewilderment on my suggestion.
(Haha… fine. O’Liam, that was interesting.)
(The way you’re evolving the spirits.)
“Is that so amazing?”
(It’s a skill that’s only possible with a soul of your caliber.)
So that’s the case…
(You, who hold that special power, there is one thing that I would like to ask of you…)
That Ladon… to me?
The next day, I headed to the forest where Ladon got sealed before.
Originally, because Ladon was sealed over there, the area was off-limits to everyone. However, since Ladon was removed from there, the restriction has been lifted.
I went inside the forest and arrived at the place where Ladon originally slept.
“Hmm… from here, go 100-meter northeast, so he said…”
I went to the direction Ladon has given me and raised my hand.
The summoning magic that I tried to activate on the way here finally activated. It seems that my training from yesterday had paid off.
The light from using sacred magic glowed, and the Ladon Juniors were successfully summoned.
At the same time, the view in front of me got distorted.
I was caught off guard.
The view had become something out of this world.
“Human! It’s a human!”
Something’s in there.
They tend to run away as soon as they saw me.
In there were miniature-sized humans… no, a fairy.
The race of pixies is smaller than human babies. They are translucent and their body shines with a faint light. Furthermore, on their backs are insect-like wings
that made it possible for them to fly.
The wings were semi-transparent and it brightly shines. It seems that a single hit is enough to shatter it.
“Wait, I’m not an enemy. Ladon told me to come here.”
“From Dragon God-sama?”
“Is that true? Is that true?”
The pixies who were about to run away, came to me one by one.
I let the Ladon Juniors I’ve summoned to perch on my shoulders and let the pixies have a good look at it.
“It’s true… that’s Dragon God’s child.”
“What happened to Dragon God-sama?”
“Is it well? Well?”
The moment they recognized my Ladon familiars, they bombarded me questions from all directions.
“Err, Ladon asked me to protect all of you.”
“Then, what should we do?”
I raised my hand and turned towards the closest pixie.
This place is the village of fairies that Ladon has protected for ages.
Ladon said that fairies are weak creatures and are destined to be hunted by humans if their existence was revealed to the world.
Since pixies feather is a special ingredient in making magic tools.
Ladon formed a barrier for their protection and he kept it for ages.
He asked me to continue his legacy. That was his request.
“First, I’m going to use magic. Is that alright?”
Their trust towards Ladon must be really high as they accepted my request without an inch of suspicion.
(You can give them a name while you’re at it.)
Ladon suggested, and I nodded.
“Okay… you are Reina then.”
I faced the pixie and cast [Familia] to her.
She was gradually enveloped by the contract magic’s light.
Inside, her form changed.
Its small body gradually grew to that of a normal human… she’s now as tall as an adult woman.
White skin and golden hair… Her form had changed into a woman with magical beauty.
(I see… she evolved into an Elf, huh… Interesting.)
Ladon praised my power…
