Leon told both Jace and Sicily to run ahead of him, while he follows behind them.
The dragon relentlessly chases Leon to eat him.
A moment ago he was about to be eaten, fortunately only a part of his robe was torn.
“… I’m going to do have to fix this tear later.”
Hearing me Sicily turns her head a bit and says,
“Don’t worry, Leon-sama. I’ll sew back the torn part.” (Sicily)
“Is the princess good at sewing?”
“I’m not really good at it, but since I lived in the downtown area of the royal capital before, I learned everything that a normal girl can do.” (Sicily)
“I see. I want to eat some home-cooked meal someday.”
“How about a dragon steak?” (Sicily)
Sicily jokingly says. I also fired back with a joke.
“Please don’t. It sounds bad.”
“Because it’s carnivorous?” (Sicily)
“Not really, he ate goblins. I don’t want to indirectly eat goblins.”
“I see your point.” (Sicily)
“And now we are going to have to smash him with a big rock. There won’t be any parts left for steaks.”
“Well then, let’s make it a hamburger steak.” (Sicily)
Sicily also fires a joke against me.
“Okay, I can see the cliff. Chloe is probably waiting.”
“You can see from this distance!?” (Sicily)
“I am a magician. If I put magical power into my eyes, I can have a hawk-like vision.”
“That’s amazing.” (Sicily)
Speaking of which, Sicily is faster than Jace. He seems to be barely able to keep up with our pace.
It’s hard to decide whether to praise Sicily for being fast or to reprimand Jace, but I don’t have time to comment.
Creating an ice spear in my right hand so I can make a safe distance.
I turn around and throw it at the huge dragon.
It was stabbed, but the dragon did not even falter.
“… Are you that angry you can ignore the pain?”
A berserker. This dragon is a berserker.
I keep doing this repeatedly, in my heart I’m not pessimistic. However, I don’t think I can defeat the Red Dragon and get out “unscathed”.
Besides, this was convenient for the plan.
He should be so angry and unable to notice his surroundings.
Thinking about it, I ran to the bottom of the cliff and shouted out.
“Chloe! Now! Drop the rock.”
She didn’t make any reply. Apparently, Chloe got confused by my situation. Or rather, it seems that she realized something.
Now, if she drops the rock, I’ll be crushed too.
She is a surprisingly smart girl.
But it’s has become quite troublesome, I scream!
“Chloe! Don’t hesitate! Who do you think I am? I’m your dear lady’s strategist! I’ve secured an escape route.”
Perhaps she was convinced by my voice, a small stone fell. Chloe seems to be pushing the rock above.
If this is the case, the rocks will fall soon.
I thought, now I finally looked around.
“… Well, I said that, but where do I run to?”
While I said there was a way to escape, the cliff was extremely narrow and there was no place where I could avoid the large rocks for sure.
As I was wondering what to do, the angry dragon opened its big mouth and came at me.
As I stared at it calmly, like I was looking from the outside, I clapped my hands.
“Why, the escape route is right in front of you.”
When I noticed it, I jumped into the gaping mouth of the dragon.
I avoided the dragon’s teeth and went straight for the back of its throat.
Now at Chloe who is about to push the huge rock.
She can push the rock to fall by making full use of her superhuman strength, but Chloe suddenly became worried.
At first, I thought it was the best strategy to crush the dragon with the rock, but I realized while doing it.
Even if the dragon can be killed with it, what happens to the person luring it? I thought–.
I thought that they would be crushed together while they are baiting the dragon.
My imagination was not wrong.
In fact, I notice that the dragon and Leon-sama appeared under the cliff.
There is no space for him to escape anywhere.
The dragon is surprisingly agile.
I know that I can’t get the desired result of the plan unless I crush the person acting as bait with the dragon.
At that moment, I was lost in thought, but I still dropped the rock down the cliff.
This is because Leon-sama shouted out loud.
“Believe in me!”
His words were full of conviction, and there was something about them that made people trust him.
So I stopped hesitating and pushed the big rock, but what was the result?
I went to the flustered Princess Sicily down the cliff.
There was a dragon whose head was crushed. The ferocious dragon now lays dead.
I felt that he was a genius strategist, but the problem was his survival.
The whole area is dyed bright red. This dragon’s blood pooled around it. Still, I cannot confirm Leon-sama’s safety.
I began to imagine something ominous, and Sicily-sama finds a piece of cloth and shrieked.
“No way…” (Sicily)
She trembled and shuddered. What she found was part of Leon-sama’s robe.
“Is Leon-sama dead? Did my strategist, my librarian; is he no longer here in this world?” (Sicily)
Milady was grieving. Her eyes were full of tears, but I had no words to say.
I didn’t know what to say, partly because I was very sad, but more so because I believed that Leon-sama was alive.
I tried hard and said in a calm voice.
“Don’t worry, Milady. Leon-sama won’t die in a place like this.” (Chloe)
Just when I say this, a miracle happened trying to prove my words.
The body of the dragon, that we thought to be dead, begins to move. The dragon with a crushed head began to shake.
The people around me were wary for a moment, but I was immediately relieved. I realized that the dragon wasn’t alive.
A pale flash of light streamed from the dragon’s belly. Then a line of light creates a round silhouette as if it were melting, then it popped open.
Of course, what came out of it was the strategist who was going to bring balance back to this world.
As far as Chloe knows, he is the strongest magician.
The name is Leon.
He said in a casual tone as if he had just got sidetracked.
“I’m back Princess Sicily, Chloe.”
The smile was natural and very light.
Even I, who was not interested in the beauty and ugliness of others, was captivated for a moment.
Milady hugged Leon-sama. It was a shameful act, but I couldn’t blame her.
I was stunned for a while at the appearance of two people who would be called beautiful by the masses.
