Getting To Know the Water Dragons
After that, we left the building with the magic circle and headed for the palace.
There were many dragons outside. About fifty from what I could see.
They were large and blue in color.
Grulf looked startled and tried to hide behind me.
“I guess they are in dragon form most of the time?”
Kathe shook her head.
“In the first place, the only dragons that are able to take human shape, are the royal family.”
“There are different kinds of dragons then.”
I looked at the dragons. They were all lined up.
Perhaps they were nervous having Princess Leea right in front of them.
The dragon in the lead shouted.
He was an especially large dragon.
“What is it?”
Leea asked with a tilt of the head.
“Is that human the Great Philosopher, Our Saviour, Grand High Sorcerer, and Grand Duke Ruck Locke Franzen?”
The dragon asked, indicating towards Eric.
“No. This is King Eric.”
“…Oh, I see. Please forgive me.”
The great dragon said as he bowed to Eric.
“It is a great honor to meet such a famous Hero King. I am Morris. The Grand Chamberlain.”
“I am Eric Mendilibar. It is nice to meet you.”
“I cannot thank you enough for lending your help in the protection of the Water Dragons.”
Grand Chamberlain Morris said politely.
However, it looked like the dragons in the back were a little disappointed.
It might have been because they thought that Eric looked weak.
Though, I was sure their opinion would change if they saw him in action.
A dragon that stood behind Morris raised its voice.
“You! You are in front of Princess Leea, the Hero King and the Wind Dragon Ruler. Stand back.”
Grand Chamberlain Morris said admonishingly.
“…Yes. Forgive me.”
The dragon said sadly.
“What is it?”
Leea said in a gentle voice.
The dragon’s tail swayed when it heard her voice.
“Yes. Your Highness. Is the Great Philosopher, Our Saviour, Grand High Sorcerer, and Grand Duke Ruck Locke Franzen not here today?”
“Mister Ruck is right here.”
Leea said with a smile as she introduced me.
The water dragons stirred.
“Great Philosopher, Our Saviour, Grand High Sorcerer and Grand Duke Ruck Locke Franzen. I am Morris, Princess Leea’s Grand Chamberlain. It is an honor to make your acquaintance.”
Morris introduced himself again.
He offered me his right index finger and I shook it.
“The honor is all mine.”
Then the other dragons pushed Morris away and came forward.
“Great Philosopher, Our Saviour, Grand High Sorcerer, and Grand Duke Ruck Locke Franzen! It’s an honor to meet you.”
“Great Philosopher, Our Saviour, Grand High Sorcerer, and Grand Duke Ruck Locke Franzen, thank you for helping to protect our settlement!”
I interrupted them.
