10 Years After Saying 'Leave this to me and go,' I Became a Legend - Chapter 163
Grulf’s Walk in the Water Dragon Settlement
From the next day on, I decided to visit the water dragon settlement at least once a day.
I would take Grulf, Tama and Lord Gerberga in the morning and see how it was doing.
So it would include Grulf’s walk.
In the afternoon I could practice with Nia or teach Milka how to do magic.
It was now the third day since we started.
Today, Kathe would come with us as well.
Kathe seemed to have a lot of free time in general.
“Good morning, Ruck. I am so glad that you came.”
“Good morning, Leea.”
When we arrived in the water dragon settlement, Leea greeted us in the room with the magic circles.
She waited here for us every day.
“I am also happy that you came, sister Kathe.”
“You are such a good child!”
Kathe put her hands around Leea and picked her up.
And then she spun around.
Leea squealed in delight.
Grulf and Tama ran in a circle around them.
“Good morning Grulf, Tama and Lord Gerberga.”
After being put back on the ground, Leea petted each of them.
“I’m happy that you come out to greet us, but you don’t have to do it every day. I am sure you are very busy, Leea?”
“Hmmm. But I want to. Does it bother you?”
“No, it doesn’t bother us at all.”
Three days had passed and I had stopped talking to her so formally.
This was by her request.
When we left the room with the magic circles, the water dragons were waiting for us.
This was also quite usual.
“Mister Ruck! Thank you for coming!”
They said excitedly as I walked Grulf and the others.
The water dragons seemed to have a lot of free time.
“Do dragons not have to work?”
I whispered to Kathe. She replied that dragons did not have to eat much.
“Think about it. It would be a disaster if such huge dragons had to eat an amount of food that was proportional to what humans eat!”
“That might be true, but you eat a lot, Kathe.”
“That’s that. This is this.”
“Uh, no, it seems like the same thing to me.”
“You are completely wrong. Don’t humans eat even when they do not need to?”
“Well, I guess they do.”
Kathe had eaten food without paying for it during her first visit to the capital.
And she ravenously ate the food that Milka made.
But as it was not necessary to eat, it probably meant that she just did it because she liked it.
In any case, as dragons did not need to eat much, they rarely had to buy food.
And so there was less need to work.
We talked about this as we jogged and patrolled the settlement.
We were only jogging so that Grulf could get some exercise.
And then we took a break when Tama started to get tired.
While we rested, Grulf continued to play and chase after the water dragons.
“Leea. Have there been any attacks recently?”
“Hmm. I don’t think so.”
“Nothing significant. However, occasionally, lesser vampires have attempted to enter.”
Added the Grand Chamberlain.
“Please tell me more about that.”
“It happens once or twice a day usually. Two to three lesser or arch vampires will attempt to enter the settlement.”
The barrier would stop anything stronger than a lord.
But the barrier didn’t stop weak vampires.
And so the water dragons would have to deal with them personally.
“That’s quite troublesome.”
“Yes, they are a threat, but easy enough to deal with.”
Lesser and arch vampires weren’t exactly worthy enemies for a water dragon.
They were like what cockroaches were for humans. They would die with one hit.
However, they were still gross and you did not like to see them appear in your territory.
And so it was uncomfortable to think about them hiding in the shadows.
Still, it wasn’t something to report to the princess every time it occurred.
And that was why Leea did not know.
“How do you know when a vampire has entered the area?”
“We use our eyes, noses and ears.”
That was surprising, given how advanced the magic of dragons was.
But I suppose they were also good at detecting the presence of others.
Still, it made me a little nervous.
“Kathe. You can use invader detection magic, can’t you?”
“Hm? Do you mean the spell I always use on ancient ruins?”
“Yes, yes. Can you cast that over this entire settlement?”
“Is it difficult?”
“Yes, because this place is very big.”
Well, that could not be helped.
“Then I will do that magic.”
“Locke. You can do it too?”
“Well, probably. Leea, is that alright?”
“Yes, thank you!”
As I had Leea’s permission, I went around the outside of the settlement once again.
It was generally the same as Kathe’s detection magic.
You set something that would become a core for the magic around the settlement and then connected them all together.
“Hmmm. Very impressive, Ruck.”
Then I made several bracelets that would ring an alarm if there was an invader, and then I gave them to the Grand Chamberlain.
“These should tell you if anyone tries to get in. But that doesn’t mean someone can’t fool it with magic.”
I said, and told them to continue to be cautious.
“You will be able to tell which side they are coming from if you look at this part of the bracelet.”
“How… Thank you so much.”
“Thank you, Ruck!”
The Grand Chamberlain and Leea were very grateful.
