482-480 New Emperor Development Note 13

 The rebellious dragon Agi Bend took us to a place called...

 We were at the top of a mountain.

 It seems to be one of the many mountains connected to the Black Widow's Mountain Range, a dungeon originally ruled by Sister Marie.

I've set up a dueling arena at this spot, which has a great view, but... I didn't know my servants were using it for their own purposes...

 Sister Marie, who accompanied him, said in a dumbfounded manner.

''Bwahahahahahaha! Now come on up! To the place of your death, let this Master Agibend of the Grinz Dragon advance to give the false emperor a fitting end!

 Agibend has already returned to his dragon form and is waiting for me.
 I'm not going to be able to get out of it, so I'm going to take on the form of a dragon and fly on my dragon's wings once before descending to the dueling grounds.

 It's wide and big. It's not likely to cause any unnecessary damage, even if it's a bit violent.
 I've been using it as a dueling ground, and it seems to be blocked off from the surroundings by a ward. The source of the magic power is your sister Marie.

 I'm sure you're not going to be able to get away with it.


 Before the fight could begin, one strange thing caught my eye.

 At the top of the dueling arena, on a pedestal high enough to look up, there was something there.

''........A human?''

 There are not just one Ningen, but dozens of them on a pedestal.
 It seems that they are fixed with magic or something to prevent them from escaping.

 I've heard that this place is in the area of the demon kingdom as humans call it, so.......demon race?

"What is a ningen doing in a place like this?
Did you notice that? You seem to be a moderate gourmand when you see how quickly you realize that, don't you?'

 No way.........?

There are several villages of Ningen around this dungeon. Or is it the demon tribe? You're the one who blackmailed them into making a sacrifice. I'm quite fond of ningens! Especially the tender flesh of a young female! I've been wanting to eat such a treat every day for some time!'

 Sister Marie lets out a cry of indignation.

''You took a sacrifice from a ningen! Such vulgarity in my domain!'
"I'm in control of this place now! I don't care how the ruler behaves! You've been out of this land long enough, and I don't need you to tell me what to do!'

 Sister Marie was with me for a long time to support me in my early days as a Gaither Dragon.
 I've been away from my home base, the Black Widow's Mountain, for a while now.

 If that void led to the rise of such a lowlife, then the blame lies with me.

I'd like to ask you one question.
'You took a sacrifice from a ningen while your sister Marie was away, didn't you? How many people have you killed?
'Hmph, I'm afraid we haven't eaten a single one yet. We've collected the sacrifices and are about to break up the feast, when you arrived.

 I see.
 So, an irreversible situation has been avoided.
 Thank goodness.

'But that's good timing! I will be the one who kills you, and I will feast on those niggers as a celebration! I'm sure it's all delicious!

 Then it's all the more reason why I can't afford to lose to you.
 The people who were brought here as sacrifices will be sacrificed if I lose.

I won't let that happen!
d*mn it! You are nothing but a future where I kill you! Eat 'Breath of Fire'!

 A huge flame shot out of Agi Bend's large mouth.
 It's a high-level attack that surpasses the "Breath of Fire".

 I'm sure you'll be able to find a way to make it work.

It's not a good idea. He ate it right! Even if they are dragons, they can't live under the blasting breath of their own kind! You'll be a whole roasted dragon!

 The flames and the blasts blasted away to show that I'm safe.
 In the end, I had to be careful not to spread the damage in the direction of the Ningen's pedestal.

I'm sure you'll be able to find it. My explosive breath doesn't kill you, it doesn't even hurt you?
"You've been licking your lips over the Geiger Dragon.

 I've been greatly enhanced by the Dragon Ball that I inherited from my father.
 My defense has also increased by leaps and bounds.

 Well, it's not cool to be proud of winning with a power that wasn't yours to begin with, so let's keep it quiet.

I'm not going to be able to tell if this is the end of that attack. Then it's this one's turn, eat it, 'Grey Breath'!

 Countless volcanic ashes are spewed out of my dragon's mouth.
 It's not just a matter of time before you get to the point where you can get your hands on it.

''Hahahahahaha? Hahahahahaha? What is this? Ashes? Are you going to sprinkle this stuff on us and attack us? How stupid is this?

 Agievent was winning with volcanic ash all over his body.
 But I wonder how long that specialty will last.

'A typical third-rate dragon, Agibend.
Oh, Father?
Dragons are strong. They are so strong that they sit on their overwhelming power and neglect to train themselves further. Lack of study is part of it.

 My father, who was running away from everything, found himself standing next to your sister, who was watching the game.

"Volcanic ash," he said. You'll get hurt if you mix them with the ashes from burning trees and grass. That's exactly what happened to me. I had to fight Ardheg.
What do you mean, father?
To the knowledge of the niggers, volcanic ashes are microscopic fragments of solidified magma that have cooled and hardened. When the magma cools, it turns into rock. When the magma is cooled down, it turns into tiny drops of rock, and when cooled down, it hardens into tiny grains, smaller than a pebble. As small as a grain of ash.

 The small, solidified, powdery rocks are volcanic ash.

Its nature is much more vicious than just ash. It's a rock, even on a grain. "It's more vicious than just ash," he said, "because even on the grain it's a rock, which, if inhaled by a weak human, can damage the throat, injure the lungs and tear the surface of the eyeballs. Ardheg's Grey Breath spits out tens of thousands, if not millions, of such ashes all at once.

 Because it is on the grain, it goes into any minute gaps and claws at delicate parts.
 Moreover, it is even sharper because the magic of the dragon resides in it.
 It slashes the enemy on a microscopic scale.

"Goooooooooooooh! It hurts! What is that gap in the scales is tingling? It hurts! I can't breathe! I can't breathe!

 The fine volcanic ash is slowly eating away at Agi Bend.
 From the softest, most delicate parts.

'Then let's move on to the next phase. Agi Bend, you deserve harsher punishment than that.'

 Lord Saint, Brother Alexander.
 It's time to unveil the new special move that you have developed by walking under two absolutes.


 I let out a breath, pursing my mouth.
 The smaller outlet creates a more convergent, unidirectional stream of ash.
 The radial breaths consolidate in a line.

''What's this? This is ah!

 With the concentrated flow, more and more volcanic ash is spewed out in great volume and with high pressure.
 What happens then?

 A line of high-pressure volcanic ash from the eruption of the volcano is aimed at Agi Bend as if swinging a sword down.


 The horror of the volcanic ash is already well known to me and I have activated my dragon magic. I'm sure you'll be able to find a way to make it work.

'Ridiculous! The wards will be broken! The best dragon magic on earth?
Isn't that obvious?

 Father will explain things for me while I'm under attack.

A stream of volcanic ash concentrated in one direction. Tens of millions of grains of volcanic ash erupt in a single count. It's as powerful as a gust of wind. Even if they are just tiny grains of rock, if they are rubbed against each other hundreds of millions of times in succession, they can cut through the scales of a dragon. And Ardhöegh adds dragon magic power to every grain of ash,

 The dragon wards couldn't stop the momentum of the breaths in the slightest, and the aggregated volcanic ash breaths that came in contact with them mercilessly split the dragon's scales apart.

 You will be able to find a lot of people who will be able to help you.
 I asked the saint to see this new technique I'd developed. He said to me, 'It's just like a chainsaw.

 --He said, 'It's like a chainsaw.

"Disgusting! I give up! I admit it! I admit defeat! So release the bracelet.

 I was going to stop fighting if I accepted the surrender.
 Until I saw those ningens held captive as a sacrifice.


 You can telepathize with dragon magic while spitting out breath.

'If you only want to rebel against me, it's still good. All dragons have the right to challenge the Geyser Dragon. Because I think so.

 But you took an innocent ninja, trifled with her, and then tried to kill her.

That is unacceptable. No dragonborn shall be allowed to harm the world. "The dragon emperor will be punished for trying to harm a Ningen.

 This is my first action as a Geyser Dragon.

"Oh, no! Help! ''Stop, eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee?''

 Agibend, who was too busy holding back the converged breath to even escape and avoid it, eventually ran out of strength and couldn't even do that, and the breath that couldn't be held back mercilessly cut both sides of the dragon's body.

 Agibend, cut in half, disappeared from the ground without a trace, along with its grandiose ambitions.
