We left Philly’s laboratory and returned to the drawing-room.
The laboratory was filled with too many things and was a mess.
This made it unsuitable for a lot of people to gather and talk.
But then again, the drawing-room was also not very large.
When we arrived,
“I’ll put on some tea!”
Milka said as she ran out of the room.
Nia and Luchila followed after her.
“I am sure that Kathe has told you some of it, but I wanted to give you a detailed report.”
What was he talking about? I had no idea.
I looked to the side. Eric and Goran also didn’t seem to know.
Kathe was also tilting her head to the side.
Dorgo saw this and continued.
“Well, first of all, allow me to congratulate you on forming the Ancient Ruins Protection Committee.”
“Yes, thank you.”
Kathe had at least told him about that.
“The dark ones are becoming more active. And so the fighting between dragons and dark ones have increased.”
Dorgo nodded. Then he spread out a map on the desk.
It was a very detailed map. There were red marks all over it.
“These are all of the places where battles between dragons and dark ones have taken place.”
“There are quite a lot.”
“Yes. There are twenty in all.”
I wasn’t sure if that was a lot or not. It was hard to decide.
But it was probably a lot, given that there shouldn’t be that many dragons.
Just then, Milka and the others brought in the tea and snacks.
They looked a little embarrassed as I thanked them.
Kathe exclaimed after taking a sip of tea.
Dorgo watched this and seemed like he was about to say something to her.
But Milka looked very happy, and so he let it go.
Instead, he bowed in front of my apprentices.
“It is very delicious. Thank you so much.”
“Oh, it’s nothing!”
Nia said with embarrassment.
After that, we returned to our conversation.
“It was yesterday. I was hunting down dark ones as revenge for attacking the palace of the wind dragon king…”
“Dad, so that’s what you were doing…”
Kathe muttered. Dorgo glared at her but didn’t say anything.
“And I found something that I could not ignore.”
And then Dorgo took it out of his bag and put it on the table.
I said with surprise. Dorgo nodded.
“I knew that you would recognize it Ruck. Yes, it is an Evil God idol.”
“Philly, do you recognize it?”
Philly had been making them when her parents had been taken hostage.
