Back to the Main Base
Just then, I saw from afar that Kathe and Nia were working quickly and efficiently.
Nia had immediately started to help the dragons after the battle was finished. She was a hard worker.
Her armor had broken in places and her head was wrapped in bandages. It would have probably been better if she rested.
“Leea. You should let Nia rest.”
“That’s what I said… But she said that she couldn’t when Shia was out there fighting.”
Nia was probably still nervous about that. And also scared.
Perhaps keeping herself busy helped with her anxiety.
“Nia! Come over here.”
She replied cheerfully and ran towards me.
Her tail had swayed a little when she heard my voice. It suggested slight relief.
“Nia. I saw you fighting out there. You’ve improved so much. It was brilliant.”
I patted her on the head and her tail wagged.
“You did very well today. But I think you should rest now.”
“It’s very dangerous after an attack. There’s a possibility that they will attack again.”
“Yes. That’s why I want to help prepare…”
“But it’s also important to recover your energy. It will be no good if you couldn’t fight during the next attack. You are much smaller and have less energy than the dragons. You should rest.”
Leea took Nia’s small hand in her large dragon hand.
“He’s right, Nia. You should rest for a while.”
“You can rest on my back. I was so happy when you saved me when I was attacked.”
“In that case…”
Leea was of the royal family and knew how to handle people.
And so a hammock was set up between Leea’s wings.
Nia got in.
It seemed like it would be comfortable as long as Leea did not move too much.
“Well, I have work to do. Leea. I’m going back to Eric and the others. Can I leave the rest to you?”
“Very well. Please be careful.”
“Yes, be careful.”
“Thanks. You two as well.”
And so I returned to the shed and reactivated the teleportation circle.
A great sword rushed towards me. I was barely able to block it with the Devil King Sword and cut the enemy down as I stepped out of the circle.
“You’re back already!?”
Apparently, Eric had been using the shield for its original purpose.
I had popped out of the shield just as Eric was blocking the enemy’s greatsword.
“I nearly died.”
It was a good thing I hadn’t let Grulf go out first.
I would have to be more careful if we ever used a shield for this again.
Grulf walked out cautiously.
“Eric, how are things going?”
“We somehow killed the one who seemed like the leader.”
“Both of us were fighting him and we still struggled. He was no ordinary High Lord.”
That being said, I didn’t think he was the ‘Most High King’ either.
Because there had been a similarly strong vampire in the water dragon settlement as well.
Shia and Serulis were fighting Arch Vampires and Vampire Lords.
Dorgo was flying in the sky and attacking the evil dragons. He looked as strong as ever.
And so I unleashed my own magic on the remaining vampires and evil dragons.
Eric and Goran had already killed all of the commanders and high-ranking vampires.
And so only the weak ones remained. It took a while, but it was not hard to wipe out the rest.
Serulis looked nervous as she held her sword up and said,
“Is it finished?”
“No, not yet. We have to go underground. Eric, Goran. Guard the entrance.”
