And so I had some time to kill.
“Are you sure?”
“Yeah, I don’t mind. I was going to practice with Nia anyway. If anyone wants to join us, they can come.”
The children looked very happy.
When they had run away, Danton turned to me again.
“Locke, you really don’t mind?”
“It’s nothing, really.”
After that, Kathe headed for the water dragon settlement.
And the rest of us went out of the mansion.
Serulis, Shia, Nia, the children, and Luchila. Lord Gerberga and Grulf were also with us.
A few chiefs also came. They said they wanted to watch, and I could not refuse them.
And so I turned to the beastkin children and said,
“Alright, I want to see how advanced you are. Come at me with all that you got.”
I fought each child one by one while Lord Gerberga was still perched on my shoulder.
The children came at me without holding back at all.
I could see that they had a lot of experience as Adventurers.
They knew that there was no point in holding back against someone like me.
When they were done, I also fought against Nia, Shia, and Serulis as well.
And then the children returned for another round.
When that was done, I turned to Luchila.
“Luchila. I have a request to make.”
She had been watching us practice with a serious expression.
“I want you to cast an illusion.”
“Alright. What kind of illusion?”
“Let me see… Make a lesser vampire.”
Luchila had no experience fighting vampire lords.
However, she had fought lesser and arch vampires several times.
And so I could expect a very accurate illusion.
