I’m a humiliated, incompetent person, but I alone can talk to dragons, so I can choose all the SSS skills and loophole items I want to. I’m going to become famous and respected, so, to the people who humiliated me – Go die in a ditch - Chapter 22

“Colette? Is something wrong?” I asked.
“I-It’s nothing!” said Colette.
“Really? But you seem-”
“Kuhahahahaha. She has what is called the mind of a maiden,” said Chris.
Colette suddenly bit into Chris, then glared at the dragon and said, “Stop with the unnecessary comments!”
“Kuhahaha. Did you catch that, my friend?” Chris asked me.
“Huh? Catch what?” I asked.
“She said unnecessary, not false– Ouch, ouch, ouch!”
Colette’s fangs dug deep into Chris’s skin.
After Chris’s cries of pain rang out, Colette reluctantly let go and she stepped away.
There was a bite left on Chris, but the Phoenix-type dragon simply enveloped it in flames and healed it, instantly.
For a moment, I was lost in admiration of how amazing Phoenix-types were.
While all this was happening, the excess of water flowed out of the dragon shed.
Colette seemed like she was feeling a bit better, so I decided to change the subject.
I turned to Louise and asked, “Louise, will you let me form a covenant with you?”
“No problem, master!” she said.
Louise got up from her sprawled out position and stepped forward to stand before me.
“Chris?” I said.
“Ah, yes,” said Chris, not bothering to get up from a lounging position. The dragon casually created a summoning circle on the ground.
The summoning circle was just large enough to encircle Louise and me.
I took out the knife that I had brought in preparation and made a cut on the tip of my finger.
A droplet of blood dripped out and fell towards the summoning circle, but it stopped before hitting the ground and hovered in midair.
Louise then chomped down on her front paw.
In the same way, a single droplet of blood fell and hovered.
The two droplets of blood came together above the summoning circle and mixed.
At the same time, a blinding light shot out of the summoning circle’s border.
“Ahh…” Louise said, worriedly.
“What’s wrong? Is it hurting you?” I asked.
“No, I just felt a little weird,” said Louise.
“It felt like ten people were tickling me under my chin at the same time.”
“Well, that does sound like it would feel weird!”
That was a stranger reaction than I expected.
“Is everything else okay?” I asked.
“Yup, all good… Wait.”
“What is it?”
“You look better than usual to me.” “Really?”
“You look like… a god or something,” said Louise, her eyes glazing over while she gazed at me as if she was in a fever dream.
Considering there was magic working on her, I decided her strange expression wasn’t a call for much concern.
While that was happening, the light from the summoning circle was absorbed into my body.
“Oh,” I said.
“Oh…” Louise said, at pretty much the same time as me. [Read this novel and other amazing translated novels from the original source at the “Novel Multiverse dot com” website @ novelmultiverse.com]
An image started to form in my mind. I figured Louise was having a similar experience.
It was similar to what I felt when I formed a covenant with Chris.
“So, this is… the covenant,” said Louise.
“That’s right,” I said.
“Now, let’s find out what power the covenant grants me… Oh, wow.”
“What type of power is it, my friend?” asked Chris.
“You don’t already know?” I asked.
“Ah, no. Each covenant is different, after all. Some are dictated by the type of dragon. Others are dictated by personality,” said Chris.
“Oh. All right,” I said.
“Of course, since I am the sole dragon of my type, one might say our covenant was dictated by both my type and personality,” said Chris.
“You are quite the anomaly,” I replied.
“Kuhahahahaha!” Chris looked up at the ceiling and laughed, heartily.
“Now, what is your new power?” asked Chris.
“Yeah, well, I think rather than explaining it, it would be quicker just to show you,” I said, looking over my surroundings.
Most of the water was gone, and because of Chris’s fiery nature, the ground beneath us was dry.
I sat down cross-legged on the patch of dry ground, and slowly closed my eyes.
I felt sleep come over me, faster than I had ever previously experienced. It took about three seconds for me to fall into a slumber.
“…Ah!” I gasped, snapping awake.
I had felt like I was falling just before I woke up.
As I looked around, all four dragons were staring at me.
“How was it, master?” asked Louise.
“Take a look at this,” I said, holding out my finger.
“What is it…?” asked Louise, cocking her head to the side in puzzlement.
“Ah, the cut on his finger is gone, and there is no scar whatsoever,” said Chris, as if explaining what had happened.
“Oh… It’s true. The place where master cut his finger for the covenant is completely healed,” said Louise.
“That’s right,” I said, nodding.
“Sleep Recovery… That’s one way to put it, anyways. While I sleep, I physically heal much faster than usual,” I explained.
“Kuhahahaha. It is not as simple as that. It has the power of advanced healing magic,” said Chris.
“Healing magic?” I said, thinking that this was better than I had thought.
It was a convenient power to have, to be able to heal just by sleeping.
It wasn’t an instant effect, but sleep was already the best remedy for injury or fatigue, and so there was really no downside. I was grateful for my newfound power.
I turned to face Louise, and said, “Thank you, Louise. This is amazing.”
“Oh! I’m glad you like it,” said Louise, smiling happily.
“Well, then, I suppose I am next,” said Emma, stepping forward.
“Emma, huh? I expect I’ll receive a power that has to do with fighting,” I said.
“Perhaps,” said Emma.
“I’m excited… Let’s do this!”
Emma and I faced each other, and in the middle of the summoning circle that Chris prepared, we each let fall a droplet of blood.[Read this novel and other amazing translated novels from the original source at the “Novel Multiverse dot com” website @ novelmultiverse.com]
