They tilted their heads to the side at the same time. It was kind of cute.
“It will take a long time if you use the full title, so just call me Ruck or Locke.”
Grand Chamberlain Morris, who had been pushed to the way back said,
“Su-surely not! You are the Great Philosopher and…”
He was about to start the whole thing again.
“No, really. It is way too long. And what if you needed to call me while we were fighting?”
“Ah, that is true.”
“He is very smart.”
“Yes, what foresight. I am deeply impressed.”
For some reason, the water dragons were impressed by that.
Their tails were swaying enthusiastically now.
“Uh, um! Lord Ruck! Can I shake your hand?”
“Not fair! I want to shake his hand too.”
“You must all wait in line then.”
Said Kathe as she began to organize them.
And so the water dragons lined up in front of me.
“Lord Ruck, it’s an honor to meet you!”
They said as I shook their hands.
“I understand that you want to talk longer, but the next dragon is waiting. Hurry up and move along after you have shaken his hand.”
Kathe urged them along.
As I was doing this, Dorgo introduced Goran to the others.
He also introduced the others to the dragons who had finished shaking my hand.
I guess it would save some time.
And it wasn’t only Eric who the water dragons knew about. Goran was quite famous as well.
“…It’s so cute.”
“Is it a spirit beast wolf?”
As for Grulf, he was being surrounded by water dragons.
He must have been intimidated by their size, because his tail was fixed between his legs.
“Wolf. Would you like to eat some of this?”
By the time I was finished shaking hands with all of the dragons, Grulf seemed to have become friends with them.
He had been fed some snacks and was now wagging his tail happily as they petted him.
“Is there anyone else who wants to shake hands?”
Kathe asked and the water dragons all bowed.
A whole hour had passed since I started to shake hands with the dragons.
“No, no. I look forward to working with you.”
And with that, we followed Leea into the water dragon palace.
