Half of the goblins fled, and half of the goblins remained.
But they are no longer willing to fight.
They’re all hurt by my magic, Chloe’s pocket watch, or Sicily’s rapier attacks. Some were able to avoid fatal injuries, but they were all stuck on the spot.
I notice that the princess is fidgeting. I think she wants to treat these.
However, goblins are creatures that do not feel gratitude, and it was inevitable that they would attack while getting treatment, so we will withhold doing so.
The princess probably had that knowledge. She didn’t try to force us to treat them. However, when we were about to leave the place with the thought of continuing our journey, the area suddenly turned tonight.
A massive shadow surrounds us.
Then the wind howled.
It feels like the sun has been swallowed, and this does not sound like an exaggeration.
Looking up at the sky, there was a creature as huge as a boulder that sprouts wings.
I shouted and put up a defensive wall chant-lessly.
Bring Chloe and Princess Sicily closer with me enclosing us in a spherical barrier.
It is an absolute barrier that can withstand high heat.
The action seems to be the correct choice.
The instant the barrier was completed, the bright red dragon spewed a breath of fire from its mouth.
The flames of hell danced while it hovered in the air.
It burned the majority of the goblins that had fallen to the ground.
When the dragon landed on the ground, it ate a goblin that had just been roasted.
Take a bite of medium-rare goblins.
A few other small monsters were eaten, but the dragon was eating goblins like these were treats.
We stood still on the spot. However, it was obvious that the dragon with its voracious appetite would eat up all the goblins at this rate. At that point, it was obvious that we would be the target.
――So I decided to withdraw here.
I cast a spell that muted our footsteps, used illusion magic, so we would not get the dragon’s attention. The dragons seemed to have been attracted by the smell of goblin blood, so they didn’t seem to be targeting us. We safely escaped to a safe zone, but fortunately or unfortunately, we came across the “Dragon reverse scale unit”.
A unit selected from the King’s Tiger Division.
The three men who were ordered to collect the reverse scales ran towards us.
They did not see us and tried to go straight to the battlefield with the dragon, but of course, we stopped them.
Calling out his name.
“Sergeant Jace! Stop it. Don’t ruin your life.”
He probably didn’t expect to be called by his name.
Jace and his friends turn around.
“Who are you? Why do you know my name?” (Jace)
“I was late to introduce myself. My name is Captain Leon von Almarsh. I am a court magician and librarian of the Royal Capital and a military strategist of a certain female general.”
“What does this Captain Leon want with a man like me? I have finally found my dragon. I would appreciate it if you did not interfere.” (Jace)
“We won’t. However, if you rush into the dragon as it is, you’ll lose. You can’t kill it like this.”
Perhaps they were aware, Jace and his friends were silent, but still squeezed out a rebuttal.
“… I know we are going to lose. We volunteered for the “Dragon Reverse Scale Collection Unit” for the sake of gold. What if we don’t do it now?” (Jace)
“That’s true, but if you die, one innocent man will die.”
“Do you mean Lieutenant Victor?” (Jace)
“… I’m sorry for him, but I can’t help it.
The Captain is an aristocrat. Also a member of a fairly high-ranking aristocrat. What would happen to a commoner like me if I crossed him?” (Jace)
I didn’t mention that he has already volunteered and is at risk of his life. I thought I couldn’t win his trust with such words.
“I know that you are scared of your captain, and you need to keep your job and money.”
Then I paused for a bit before continuing.
“This is the female general I serve.”
I introduced Sicily, who was next to me. She gave him quite the smile.
“She is a royalty of this country. Princess Sicily, you know her as such.”
“Of course…” (Jace)
Jace prostrates. Then Sicily, said they should raise their heads.
“I swear by my name that I will suppress your captain and the noblemen behind him. I won’t let them lay a finger on Jace or any of you.” (Sicily)
Sicily’s name and reputation must have reached their ears. They did not doubt her words. –However,
“I appreciate your words, Princess Sicily, but we are in need of gold. The reason we’ve gone to this reverse scale collection unit is partly because of the captain’s harassment, but also because some of us came here for our careers, money, and title.” (Jace)
“Well, then there is no problem if the reverse scale is collected.”
Perhaps because Leon said it as a matter of course, Jace and others were dumbfounded for a while before they replied, “What!?”
“Captain Leon, can you help us?” (Jace)
“Once you have the reverse scales and the fear of attacks from your captain is disappear. Then, will you defend Victor in the military trial?”
“Of course. I have always liked Lieutenant Victor. How many times has he saved my life on the battlefield?” (Jace)
“Then we have a deal. Your words and Victor’s life are a small price to pay for one dragon.”
After assuring them of this, I decided to tell them about my plan.
When I said we were going to kill the dragon, I didn’t mean to do it the right way. There was no reason why we couldn’t kill it the right way, but it would cost us dearly. It was a waste of resources, and I am a shadow tactician. I thought that shadow tacticians had their own clever ways of doing things.
