Attack of the Dark Ones
Once the defense measures were set in place, life continued as I went back and forth from the water dragon settlement and the mansion every day.
We were also worried about the royal capital.
And so I stopped by the Adventurers Guild every morning.
Josh and Ario were almost always there.
“Mister Locke, why don’t you come rat hunting with us some time?”
“That sounds really fun, but I’m a little busy these days.”
“Of course, you are. You’re so skilled. There must be all kinds of requests coming your way.”
It looked like Ario and Josh were making steady progress.
And I was glad to see young people grow.
After leaving the guild, I returned to the mansion in order to go to the water dragon settlement.
Grulf would get his walk, and I would patrol the place.
In the afternoon, it was practice with Nia and Serulis. And then magic lessons with Milka and Luchila.
A week passed like this.
Then one night at the mansion, I was sleeping with Grulf when my bracelet started to vibrate.
‘Lord Ruck. We are under attack.’
It was Grand Chamberlain Morris’s voice.
I jumped out of bed and answered.
“I’m on my way.”
“Grulf. I’m going to the water dragon settlement. You can stay and sleep.”
I grabbed the Devil King Sword and ran to the magic circle room on the first floor.
I avoided wearing pajamas to bed because of situations like this.
Of course, I wasn’t wearing armor, but still slept in my normal clothes.
Serulis poked her head out from her room. Perhaps she had heard me running down the steps.
“The water dragons have requested help!”
That’s all that needed to be said.
I went into the magic circle room and teleported to the water dragon settlement.
I felt a little dizzy, as was usual after teleporting.
“So you came too, Grulf?”
“Don’t hurt yourself.”
I then ran out of the magic circle building.
Leea was waiting outside.
Tonight, she was in the shape of a dragon.
She was smaller than Kathe and had a pretty, blue color.
“Ruck. There are invaders from the gate! Morris is holding them back now.”
“Understood. There is a possibility that lesser or arch vampires will get in. You should stay with the other water dragons and keep watch.”
And then Grulf and I ran towards the gate.
While we ran, a voice sounded from my bracelet.
‘Locke. How are things going?’
Unfortunately, Goran had been sleeping in his own mansion tonight.
Well, that was usual, so it could not be helped.
“I’m headed towards the scene right now. So I do not know. I’ll call you if it seems like we need help.”
“So you stay and rest for now.”
‘As if I could sleep.’
Eric’s voice also sounded.
This was an advanced bracelet that allowed you to talk to multiple people at once.
‘I’m headed for your mansion right now.’
‘I’m also going. I’m in the underground passage.’
‘I am going too!’
‘I have just arrived at the settlement.’
Kathe was in my mansion and Dorgo had been in the Wind Dragon Palace.
