The Strongest Wizard Becomes a Countryside Guardsman After Taking an Arrow to the Knee - Chapter 413
We walked through the town looking at all the interesting progress going on in Elkay.
The dragon stable was a massive building in the middle of the town, so people were looking it over as they walked by.
「Looks like nothing hit it.」
「Yeah, it was close to the battle took, so I’m happy it was undamaged.」
「Your good work shows, Vi-Vi.」
Saying that caused Vi-Vi to blush a bit.
Since she had cast protection circles around it, it remained untouched.
Shiggy peeked out from my pouch,
She cried out rhymically.
It was very cute, and sounded respectful.
She might have started to feel as dignified as an ancient dragon duchess should.
「You really are noble, Shiggy.」
I patted her head.
There were people rebuilding houses around us.
Maybe Shiggy was ryaaing along with the hammers’ rhythm around us.
I patted her head in tempo as we walked to the dragon stable.
We were still a ways away, but I could hear Jearl.
I think he was quietly huffing instead of crying out.
「Seems that he’s in the stable. I wonder if I should give him something.」
I searched in my magic bag for something. There was some magic boar meat left.
「You’re right…let me see as well.」
Timi started searching in her bag as well.
「I’m still sorry I scared him. Maybe something good to eat will fix that.」
She looked a bit upset about it.
As we stopped and she continued looking,
I could see Jearl’s face looking out from the stable at us.
He probably noticed that we were coming.
Shiggy noticed this and happily called out.
Jearl came out of the stable and greeted us.
It was bad to keep him waiting, so we quickly walked up to the stable.
「Jearl, thanks for coming out to see us.」
He stood proudly before us, but still would not look in Timi’s direction.
His tail wasn’t between his legs, but you could tell he was trying not to shake.
Timi still scared him, I bet.
Shiggy flew on top of Moofy and got close to Jearl.
Jearl patted Moofy with his hand and Shiggy flew onto it.
Jearl’s eyes got bit as Shiggy approached.
「Gaa gaa gaaa」
Jearl shook a bit.
「What is it, Jearl?」
「He noticed that Shiggy grew as well. Good eye, Jearl.」
Timi now got close and patted Jearl. Jearl shook a bit.
However, he didn’t pee himself. I guess he was getting used to them.
「Jearl, you look much better.」
「I’m glad you’re not frightened. You can have some of this.」
Timi took out some ball of meat. He looked at it and seemed to be reserved about it.
「It’s okay, Jearl. Shiggy had lunch already.」
Timi petted him again and the dragon began to eat.
「I have more if you want it, Jearl.」
I gave him what I had and he quickly ate it up as well.
Must have been hungry.
Shiggy said quietly and then flew to me.
「What? You want some too?」
Because Jearl ate so happily, Shiggy must have felt hungry as well.
So I took some more food from my bag as well.
She was a baby, so it was good to feed them when they were hungry.
「Eat it all so you get bigger.」
I enjoyed seeing the tiny dragon eat.
Timi watched me feeding Shiggy and said,
「We came for another reason as well. We want to search that magic circle.」
「Oh, you’re okay with it? Thanks.」
Timi made sure that Jearl knew we were going to check that magical circle as well.
I was surprised they could communicate. But they were both dragons.
So I continued feeding Shiggy and said,
「Timi, you understand Jearl’s language?」
「Wha? I think I know what you’re talking about at least.」
「Yeah, Jearl said it was okay to check. You got that right?」
「I don’t understand the words, but I guess I figured it out, by looking at his face.」
「Is that all?」
Timi looked a bit proud of herself, so I looked at Jearl.
Jearl was still eating.
I guess he really didn’t notice anything special about the circle.
「Jearl, can we go inside the stable?」
So we took a look inside the place.
I didn’t know what he was saying, but he could understand us, I guessed.
So we went over to the magical circle as Jearl looked at us curiously.
He seemed to be asking, 「What do you want with that?」
「The seal hasn’t been broken.」
Vi-Vi said, looking at the sealed entrance.
