28-28 Return to the Royal Capital

 We were driving the carriage towards the capital.
 Up to this point, we had maintained full speed, knowing that we were pushing the horses too hard.
 Thanks to our efforts, in less than half the time it took us to get to Mithra, we were back within sight of the walls of the capital and the spires of the royal castle rising in the center.
 But the sky over the city was dark and hazy, a far cry from when we had left in the morning.

"I didn't expect it to be this bad...!

 Inez, who was controlling the reins of the carriage, stared at the sky of King's Landing with a tense expression.

 Black smoke rising here and there...
 The smell of something burning wafting in the wind.

 The smoke wasn't coming from one or two places.
 There were dozens of them, from one end of the city to the other...
 It was as if all of King's Landing was on fire.

 I could understand why my brother wanted to keep me away from King's Landing.
 But to think that we were willing to run away on our own at a time like this...
 Even after all this time, I'm still ashamed of my lack of forethought.

"Hmm? What is that...?

 At that time, Dr. Noor muttered as if he had found something.

"What's wrong, ......?

 The doctor was quietly looking up at the sky.
 He was looking up at the sky, almost straight up.

I have a feeling something's coming from up there.
"Up there...?

 I tried to stare at it, but I couldn't see anything.
 The doctor pointed far up in the sky, just above King's Landing.

There, right there. Can't you see it?
"No, I don't see anything...!

 As I stared in the direction he was pointing, I gradually saw that something was indeed descending from the dim sky above the capital.
 It was a minute flicker that could only be described as a slight discomfort.

 But that flicker was too big.
 It seemed to cover almost the entire sky of King's Landing...
 It's hard to believe that it's the size of a single organism.

 The next person to speak up was Inez.
 At the same time, everyone in the room gasped.

"Oh, my God...!

 As all of us stared up at the sky in amazement, the "thing" appeared.
 Perhaps someone had used the [Concealment Removal].
 I'm not sure what to make of it, but I'm sure it's a good idea.

"...... eh ......?

 I was rendered speechless by the sheer size of the thing.
 I had never seen a creature that large before.

 But I've seen him before.
 It's a legendary being that's been depicted in all sorts of lore - picture books, illustrated books, grimoires, history books.
 It's a legendary existence that's been depicted in all kinds of books.

 I'm not sure if it's a good idea, but it's a good idea.

I'm not sure if it's really ......!

 I couldn't believe what I saw with my own eyes right away.
 I was stunned when I saw the figure floating in the sky of the capital.
 Both Inez and Rollo seemed to be at a loss for words when they saw what appeared before them.

 I'm sure you're not the only one.

 In the event that you do not know the legend of the evil dragon, and even if it is not the evil dragon, it is obvious from the scene in front of you.
 The dragon seemed to be heading straight for the royal castle.


 I muttered to myself.
 Perhaps my father is there now.
 The Royal Castle of the Kingdom of Crais serves as a command center in times of emergency.
 In the event of an emergency in the capital, the king, the supreme commander, is supposed to look over the capital from there and deal with it.
 The one who sent it must have known that and sent him to the royal castle.

 No matter how brave my father is, he can't take on something like that.
 What awaits him there is certain death.

 The destruction of King's Landing, the death of the king.
 In other words, it's the country's...


 My mind was full of thoughts, but I came to my senses at the sound of my teacher's voice.

"That's... not a very good situation, is it?

 The doctor asked me quietly.

"Yes, very much.

 I tried to keep my voice as calm as I could in my confused head.

It seems to be the very existence of the legendary [evil dragon of disaster].
 And that's where your father is. If that dragon gets there... and if it gets into the capital... the capital, the capital...

 But he couldn't say anything else.

 I don't know what the hell I'm talking about.
 What would be the point of telling Dr. Noll such a thing?

 We're a long way from King's Landing now.
 There's nothing we can do from here.
 Even if we could get there, what the hell could we do...

Then we'll have to do what we can to help. If we run now,......, we might be able to make it. Can you do what you did with the last goblin?

"......Eh, ......?

 I'm sure you'll be able to figure out what's going on.

 That's where I'm going.
 And by "that"...

You mean "windblast"? If that's the case, then yes, I can do it if I want to, at ......, but...

I'm sure I'll just get in the way, but ...... maybe I can buy you some time. I've been indebted to that town and to Lean's father, and I want to be of some help.

 He said calmly, as if it was nothing at all.
 Then he smiled at me.

 That's when my doubts were lifted.
 I might not make it.

 It couldn't be.
 Dr. Noll said I could make it.

 So I made a quick decision.
 I'm going to do everything I can to get him there.

 Wind Blast, an advanced wind-based attack spell.

 It's not something you would normally fire at a person.
 It's so powerful that if you hit it directly, ordinary demons will be scattered to dust, and if you hit a house, it will blow down several houses.
 That's why I hesitated when I fired at Dr. Noor's back in the previous battle.
 If I had injured him,......, I'm sure I wouldn't have used even half of my full strength.

 But... I didn't hesitate anymore.

 Because I knew I didn't have to.
 The doctor didn't seem to have sustained any damage after that.
 Not even a scratch...
 Normally, this would be unthinkable, but for him, it must have felt like a gentle breeze.

 Everything about him is out of the ordinary...
 So in order to live up to his expectations, I decided to put all of my energy into shooting [Wind Blast].
 There is no need to hesitate or go easy on me.

 The one who is in front of me right now is none other than Dr. Noor.

"I understand, Inez. I need your help.

 In the event that you have any questions regarding where and how to use the site, you can call us at our own website.
 Point it horizontally in the direction of the royal capital, and have your teacher stand at the tip of it...
 I put my hands on the other side of the "tube of light".

Then... let's go. The impact will be far less than before, so please bear with me.


 I instantly focused my consciousness and began to prepare to fire all my magic power at Dr. Noor's back.

 In the event that you have any kind of questions regarding where and how to use the internet, you can call us at the web site. In the event that you have any kind of questions concerning where and how to use the internet, you can call us at the web site.
 At the same time, in order to further increase the energy of the [Wind Blast], which is powerful enough to blow away a citadel with a single blast, I activate the [Multicast], which was handed down to me by the [Demon Saint] Mr. Oken.

 My limit is three chants with each hand.
 With both hands, it's "sixfold chanting"...
 It's a good idea to have a good idea of what you're looking for.

 I'll use that power to push Dr. Noor out of the way...
 This is the best I can come up with on the spur of the moment - the maximum I can do right now.

 I finished all the preparations while taking one deep breath.

 I can only do so much.
 At most, I can break the speed of sound.
 There's no way I can reach the dragon with that.

 But sir...
 If it's Mr. Noll...

"Here I go... [Wind Blast]

 This is the first time that I've ever seen such a thing.

 It's also a great way to make sure you don't get caught in the middle.
 You'll be able to find a lot of people who are interested in this kind of thing.
 Even after deploying all the defensive magic to withstand the impact, it was still this powerful.
 Taking this hit on his back, Sensei...

 He... disappeared without a sound.

 At least, to my eyes, it looked like he simply disappeared.

 But immediately after, the road leading to the capital caved in.
 And just like the footprints of giants, the road was punctured with one big hole after another, and from there, the ground split wide open. The cracks gradually extended towards the royal capital...

 Suddenly, the earth shook violently.

 A tremendous earthquake...
 It was as if a huge meteorite had struck the earth.
 At the same time, far in the distance, I saw something jump up.

 It looked like a figure holding a black sword in its hand...

"Sir... good luck.

 The shadow seemed to be sucked in by the [Demon Dragon of Misfortune] floating in the skies of King's Landing, and instantly disappeared from sight.
