10 Years After Saying 'Leave this to me and go,' I Became a Legend - Chapter 104
F-Rank Warrior vs Dragon
I immediately created a magic barrier to protect everyone.
It would be pointless to only cover one side, and so I made it cover us from every direction and above our heads.
The fire was incredibly powerful.
It burned the walls of the ruins and the bodies of the goblins were burned in an instant.
The magic barrier kept it from hitting us directly, but the temperature was still rising.
And it didn’t seem like the fire would stop any time soon.
“This is a very long fire attack.”
“If this continues, we will not be able to breathe anymore.”
This fire was magical. Magic fire did not need oxygen to burn.
That being said, it did make things easier.
And speaking of air…
“I was thinking about braving it and then attacking when it let its guard down and entered, but that won’t be easy now.”
And so I began to use wind magic while maintaining the magic barrier.
From inside the ruins to the outside. The wind burst out into the open.
Unlike most wind magic, I could not use the air that was around us.
If I did, it would create a vacuum.
But I could create wind magic by substituting the air with magical energy.
In other words, it was a powerful wind of magical energy.
And it now pushed out of the ruins, driving out the flames in an instant.
I heard a scream coming from outside. It must have been hit by the flames.
Its own flames. You reap what you sow.
If we wanted to escape, this was the time.
“We’ll go out at once. Follow me.”
They followed me as I ran.
I could stop the flames again if we were attacked, but it was a lot of trouble.
And so I took them all and ran straight out of the cave.
And there was a dragon.
A dragon so close to the royal capital was no ordinary thing.
And it wasn’t a small lesser dragon either.
It was a giant great dragon.
The dragon looked at us and gave a terrifying roar.
Shia and Serulis shuddered.
They had been overwhelmed by the magic energy in the roar.
The hunting rank for great dragons was AAA.
That meant you needed to have a party with multiple A-Rank members.
Shia was B-Rank and Serulis had the combat abilities of a B-Rank, so it would be too much for them.
Nia and Grulf let out a scream.
Facing a dragon’s roar on your first Adventure was rather shocking.
Grulf’s tail was curled between his legs and he was shaking.
A yellow puddle appeared on the ground under him. He must have been so scared.
But he was still a pup, so it couldn’t be helped.
And in a way, it was a good thing to have an instinctive fear of dragons, who were so overwhelmingly more powerful.
So Grulf still had some of the wild animal in him. I would have to praise him later.
“We should retreat at once!”
Shia and Serulis had decided to escape and then call for reinforcements.
It was a good and well-thought out decision. But that would take too much time.
“I think I’ll have to do something about it for now.”
I sent magical energy throughout my body in order to strengthen it. Then I rushed towards the dragon.
The dragon unleashed its fiery breath. The ground turned into a sea of fire.
I created multiple barriers to protect Shia and the others.
At the same time I cover my left hand with magic and wave away the fire that was directed towards me.
The dragon screamed weirdly, perhaps in shock.
I reached the dragon and then jumped up into the air.
When I was level with the dragon’s eyes, I slammed my fist into its nose.
It stumbled and then its knees hit the ground. Its mouth opened in order to breath once again.
My attacks don’t stop there, and I drive my foot into the side of its giant head.
As the dragon’s head twists to the side, so does its breath.
The forest began to burn. This was bad.
And so I unleashed a wave of ice magic over a wide area.
In a flash, the entire scene was bathed in white as if it were a winter day.
The dragon groaned as I shot a magic bullet into it.
I wanted to avoid the spreading of damage by taking too long.
It would be simple enough to kill it. But I wanted to ask the dragon why it was here.
I had to make it surrender and then talk to it.
But even after being hit by the magic bullets, the dragon would not give up.
It tried to breath again. I filled its jaw with ice.
As its mouth was closed, the fire spewed out from its nostrils.
Then the dragon spread its wings. It would try to fly away in order to escape.
But I wouldn’t let it. Just as its body lifted from the ground, I froze its wings.
The dragon fell and crashed to the ground.
And with that, I started to cover the dragon in ice.
Everything but its face. And it wasn’t just any ice. It was magic ice.
It would not melt easily and it could not break.
The dragon could no longer move.
“Surrender, and then I will forgive you.”
“You have defeated me. Do as you will.”
The dragon declared its defeat in the human tongue.
Serulis looked surprised.
“It-it just talked!”
“Well, yes. A dragon this great would not find that difficult.”
“Is that so…”
As Serulis and I talked, the dragon interrupted us.
“Can you release me now? I am very cold.”
“Ah, sorry about that.”
And so I deactivated the ice magic.
The released dragon continued to shiver for quite some time.
