Clack, clack, clack.

Several light footsteps echoed in the cave.

Right now, several skeletons are gathered in front of Lucia and I.

Skeletons are small fry. We had no trouble defeating them. But if there is a problem, it is the presence of skeletons here.

Perhaps there is a dungeon in the area.

“Kekeke. Good. After defeating the dragon… and the Colosseum, I’m going to go conquer it.”

Dungeons are good. Treasure and monsters spring up in abundance.

That’s why it takes a lot of effort to conquer it, but it was perfect for me because I’d rather put in the effort.

I grab onto Lucia’s hand.

“M-master Luca? What are you……”

“Ignore them. Our priority right now is to get out of here.”


I jumped over the skeleton’s head with Lucia, who obeyed me obediently.

I ran at full speed, covered in aura

Lucia naturally can’t keep up with my speed. So I held her in my arms as I ran.

“H-h-hey, m-m-me !?”

“You’ll bite your tongue !”

I ran further and further into the cave while admonishing Lucia, who was making strange, incomprehensible voices.

From the amount of aura I’ve recovered, I’m going to have a hard time if I don’t find a way out soon.

But if a dungeon has arisen and skeletons are being born…..the exit is not far away.

Skeletons are small fry. Small fry are usually born in the shallow layers of the dungeon.

If you improve your aura without considering the efficiency of consumption, you will run even faster.

After about a minute, we found the exit.

As expected, the fact that there were stairs in the middle was a big helpr. As soon as I climbed up there, I was able to reach the surface.


Lucia covered her eyes with her hand as the sun shone for the first time in a little while.

I also frown slightly.

There is no dragon outside. There was no sound, so Sheila probably managed to escape.

After confirming this, I put Lucia down and sat down on the spot.

“Master Luca? What are you doing?”

“Resting as you see. I’m trying to recover my aura.”


“I’m going to slay a dragon. You need an aura to do that.”

“Y-you’re still going to do it?”

“Of course. I came here to kill it in the first place. I can’t just fall into a hole and run away with my tail between my legs.”

Rather, it is the dragon who does such things. Humans don’t have tails (smug face).

“Even so…..Master Luca can’t beat that dragon yet.”

“Do you think I can’t win?”

“To be honest…”

You really are an honest girl.

It seems like she’s mentally exhausted because her own attacks didn’t work at all.

But it’s an unpleasant opinion.

I can’t beat a dragon? A non-adult dragon?

You need to change your mind.

I have a policy of not taking on battles that I don’t have a chance of winning.

“Then you can walk away. I’m the only one fighting it anyway.”

“Master Luca……”

“Don’t worry. I’ll win. I’ll win and I’ll come back for you. And then I’ll start training.”

I told Lucia with a smirk.

She froze, her face reddening.

She tilts her head at me, and after a moment, she replies.

“……Right. Well, I’ll be watching. For your victory.”

“Leave it to me.”

I’m going to win. If I don’t win, there’s no point.

A few hours of rest.

Enough aura has recovered. I stand up and make a final request to Lucia, who also stands up.


“What is it?”

“Shoot some magic. Something powerful and flashy.”


“Anywhere. Wherever it draws the dragon to you.”

“All right. I’ll get started right away.”

With that, Lucia released a bolt of lightning from her hand.

Lightning flashed across the sky.

A tremendous sound echoed, immediately followed by a yell that seemed to echo from the depths of the earth.

“Rooooooaaaaaarrr ! !”

It was the roar of a dragon.

Was it resting its wings? A red dragon, looking very angry, rose into the sky.

I looked up at it and drew my sword.

“Hey, it’s been a while, you lizard. I’ve come to avenge what you did to me.”

The dragon’s entire body was enveloped in an aura.

The dragon howled in anger once more and came barreling out of the sky at us with great force.

He’s going to finish us off with a single blow from the front.

I decided to respond to its spirit.

“L-Luca !”

“Just shut up and watch. I’ll finish it right away.”

I concentrate on my magic.

I constructed fire and wind magic and combined them.

I created a huge sphere of flame and smashed it into the dragon.

A roar and shock filled the surrounding area.

Thanks to the fact that the dragon came at me from the front, it was unable to lose its magic. Since I didn’t have to aim either, I was able to simply increase the power.

As a result, the dragon took heavy damage, including its own kinetic energy.

It fell to the ground, and about 30% of its mouth popped off.

“No way…….”

Lucia is astonished to see the fallen dragon.

It’s too early to be surprised. The dragon is alive. The strongest species is not just for show.

“This is also the compound magic I’m going to teach you. You’ll get this much power in no time. You have a gift.”

With that, I readied my sword and kicked the ground before the dragon could get to its feet.

Let’s get rid of the lizard that fell to the ground !
