Chapter 225: The Village of the Dragon People (1)
A room in the house where Ragune and her older brother Drago reside in the village of the Dragon people.
Drago, the owner of the house, was astonished by the events and information that came one after another.
Suddenly, a group of people claiming to be his sister’s friends literally appeared out of nowhere, and It was the savior of the village, and yet he was still a boy.
Furthermore, it seems that it was not as I thought, that it was my sister’s ability that brought them here.
If this is the case, it means they must have slipped through the many layers of wards in this village.
Isn’t this a big deal?
Drago’s head was spinning with confusion in the short time he had been here.
No, but first, tea for the saviors?
No, no, no, call the chief and explain the current situation….
No, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no! First of all, I have to find out if they’re a safe opponent…!
Drago’s head was in turmoil as he tried to think, but he was so confused that he couldn’t think straight, and then the savior boy spoke up.
“I think we should all sit down and calm down first. Drago-san, please sit down first.”
Drago nodded, as the boy told him what he, as the owner of the house, had to say.
The sister and the girl used the bed as a chair, the grown man and the boy sat on the chairs next to the table, and I sat on the chair next to the door.
“As I introduced earlier, my name is Tauro. We are a team of adventurers including Ragune. Today, as a result of an experiment combining Ragune’s ‘dimensional corridor’ and my ‘spatial transfer,’ I was allowed to visit here. Sorry for the suddenness.”
A boy named Tauro explained the situation.
“Eh!? ‘Spatial Transfer’!?”
Drago was surprised to hear the name of this legendary ability coming out of the boy’s mouth.
If what this boy says is true, then, is this child an owner of the hero skill?
Nowadays, there is no one who has the ability of “spatial transfer” even among the dragon people.
There are those who were born with the hero skill even in the current generation.
However, it is not always the case that they learn “spatial transfer.”
Even the same heroes have their own personalities, and are competent or incompetent.
No, but it is a rare unique skill that is said to be possessed by only one brave in several generations… Does this boy have it too? My head is spinning!
“Kill…! Oh, I’m sorry.”
Drago was so confused by the surprising information coming from this boy that he involuntarily blurted out something strange.
Tauro and his friends heard the same disturbing words they were accustomed to hearing from their friend, and now they were hearing them from her brother as well.
Your brother has the same habit!
Everyone was inwardly chastising him.
“Um, that habit of yours? I’m also curious about that too, but since your brother seems to still be confused, can you explain it to him Ragune?”
“Brother. Tauro is not a hero, but he is someone who can use ‘spatial transfer’. Just as Tauro explained, they came here as a result of the combination of my “dimensional corridor” and his “spatial transfer”. Brother, do you understand?”
Ragune understood from the fact that her brother was confused, and a habit he rarely said anymore came out, so she explained in a way that calmed him down.
“…I’m sorry. I was too upset. Whenever I get confused, I have flashbacks to my training days in this village, so I say things like that. I say this especially to Ragune because she was in that training until recently, but I hope you all understand that. …By the way, does that mean that you came here as a result of an experiment and not for any other reason?”
Drago summed up the conversation.
“ Yes, sir. So, if you could also lift this siege or let down your guard, it would save us from getting nervous too.”
From a moment ago, Tauro’s “presence detection” had shown that the house was surrounded by people who seemed to be ridiculously strong, dragon race warriors.
Some of them are hard to detect because of their inhibitory skills.
Although they were not trying to kill us, they were exerting pressure on us from the outside, as if they were going to crush us.
Ankh also sensed this and was breaking into a cold sweat.
“… Ah, I’m sorry. It’s a system that senses when an outsider enters and the garrison rushes in. I can’t talk about it any more. I will explain the situation to the garrison, but after that, I think you will all have to meet with the chief.”
Drago then left the room and went to explain the situation to the garrison outside the house.
“I’m going to go, too. You guys stay here.”
Ragune also said this and left the room.
Outside, I heard a voice saying, “Ragune again? and “What? Spatial transfer?!” and “the savior is here?!”
And then, after a series of murmurs were transmitted from outside to inside the room, Ragune came back into the room.
“When I explained it to the captain, he said that he’d take everyone to the chief and he wants us to come, but what do you guys want to do?”
At Ragune’s words, Tauro and the others looked at each other.
”Well…we don’t have a choice, do we?”
Tauro let it slip, and both Aeris and Ankh nodded.
