“No, it’s delicious!”
Still, it made me smile.
Besides, Kathe ate a lot. Which was always nice to see.
“By the way, Kathe. What were you doing today?”
“I was patrolling the area around the water dragon settlement. To see if the dark ones have been up to anything.”
The barrier around the settlement had been broken on the day we crushed their main base.
The broken barrier was repaired with the power of all the water dragons and my own help, and now it was stronger than ever.
I had even added resistance to physical damage, so it would survive a meteor strike.
That being said, caution was still good.
So Kathe’s efforts were much appreciated.
“Did you notice anything?”
“There were lesser vampires and goblins. That’s all.”
“…Are you sure about that?”
“You wouldn’t be getting humans and goblins mixed up again, would you?”
“Oh, I am passed that.”
Kathe said proudly.
“I am now able to tell humans and goblins apart.”
“Oh, that is quite an achievement.”
“Hehe. It is because I now meet you humans every day. It is only normal that I can tell the difference now.”
That is a very good thing.
Serulis said as she at her meat.
“But why was the barrier broken in the first place?”
“The obvious reason. They brought in magic machines that hadn’t been activated yet.”
But there were magic circles that detected any enemy intruders.
And so the water dragons were aware of it and tried to stop them.
But the gate was suddenly attacked at the same time, and the main fighting force was lured away from the center of the barrier.
That gave the enemy an opportunity to destroy the core.
“They were probably attacking the settlement every day so they could find the location of the core.”
The barrier that protected the base of the dark ones was very powerful, but the concealment magic was insufficient.
Perhaps it was the strength of the barrier that led them to believe that they didn’t need to hide their core as much.
So we were able to find it quickly and drop down meteors.
However, the core of the settlement was hidden well.
And so it required many attacks to find it.
“But we strengthened the concealment magic and changed the location as well. They won’t be able to get in so easily next time.”
“Would it be hard for you too, Mister Locke?”
“It would be hard if I didn’t know anything about it. It would take me a lot of time.”
“Then it must be quite safe.”
Shia sounded relieved.
