Kathe was a huge dragon now. And the sound was deafening.
I made a suggestion.
“I agree with this alliance, but perhaps it would be better if it wasn’t made public?”
“Because as we were discussing, there is a possibility that there are those in the city who are connected to the dark ones.”
“I see. It will be harder for the enemy to react if it is a secret alliance. What do you think, Eric?”
“Yes. That would be better.”
Kathe folded her arms.
“What is it?”
“Oh, I was just thinking. We will have to think of a name for this alliance.”
“I do not think that we have to?”
“What? No, it is very important.”
Maybe it was important for dragons. Then she should do as she liked.
After thinking for a while, Kathe smashed her tail on the floor again.
“Alright, how about the Ancient Ruins Protection Committee?”
“I don’t mind.”
Eric said with a smile.
I couldn’t tell if it was because he didn’t care or actually really like it.
“Alright, then. It is decided. I will make an organization chart later!”
So saying, Eric and Kathe shook hands. It was a handshake between a human and a giant dragon.
So it was really just Eric grabbing the tip of one of her claws.
Still, Kathe seemed incredibly happy.
And so I asked her,
“Kathe, you are the ruler of the wind dragons?”
“Yes, why do you ask?”
“Why didn’t you tell me before?”
“You never asked.”
“Announcing it when no one has asked? How could I do something so embarrassing?”
“I understand that.”
Said Eric. I guess it was a king thing.
“But there is nothing embarrassing about it, is there? It is a great occupation. You are working for the people.”
“And yet you were hiding the fact that you were Ruck, the Hero.”
“But that was…”
“You became the Great Philosopher, Our Saviour and Great High Sorcerer by saving the people, didn’t you? You should not be embarrassed about that.”
Well, I couldn’t argue with that.
“Well, I am also Grand Duke. That could cause political strife…”
“Still, that is nothing compared to being a king.”
Kathe looked very smug.
“Looks like you lost this one, Ruck.”
Goran said with a boisterous laugh.
