“Rhea…is a Master Dragon?”
“I’m not sure…but it seems like that doesn’t it?”
I nodded slightly and thought it over carefully.
It wasn’t a certainty that Rhea was a Master Dragon.
It was only Colette’s speculation.
But there was a possibility.
Because dragons were more “genuine creatures” than humans.
And the instinct of living things comes from the need to survive and reproduce.
That claw, and how once it was taken in by a Dragon Born increased the speed, it was most likely was what was left from the original Balaur species.
The remains and an orphan.
The more instinctual a living thing is, the more it tries to leave a child behind before it dies.
The child left behind is surely a child who can be further connected to the “future”.
Thinking of it that way the possibility of Rhea being the Master Dragon that “connects” the Balaur species was a high likelihood.
“Surely…we only have circumstantial evidence, but I think it is the case.”
“You’re probably right…that child…”
I noticed Colette’s reaction and wondered what it was about.
She was able to make me aware through our conversation, but I didn’t understand why she looked like she was still deep in complicated thoughts.
“What’s wrong Colette, is there something on your mind still?”
“Huh? O-oh it’s nothing! Because I can make children…but I’m not thinking about anything…”
Colette became flustered and went into denial.
I wondered if she was stuck on the fact that she could have children, but what about that was bothering her?
While Colette was passionately denying her thoughts, she kept stealing glances at my face.
What exactly was going on?
Two days later, we left Man O’War and returned to Parsolon.
The journey was slow due to Colette being a Mushushu type and not moving very fast.
Slowly over time, the scenery went from “city landscape” to manors for a short time, and then we returned to the “essence of the rural country”.
Lately, this place felt like a place I could relax.
When I entered Parsolon, a young voice called out to me, and I could hear the patter of hurried footsteps. Rhea had arrived.
From the other side of the ridge, I could see a small Rhea rushing over at high speed.
She was still a child, but she was a Balaur species.
With her great feed, she made it over in no time.
She immediately went for a hug, but I lost my balance and I fell on my back.
“Welcome home father!”
While she was on top of me she licked my face.
It was a strong instinct to seek affection through this type of skinship and was common among the young dragons.
“Yep, I am home. Have you been doing okay?”
“Yep. Can we play dad? Let’s race!”
“You are going to have to give me a break.”
I said while patting Rhea’s head.
It didn’t seem like there was much of a difference between dragon children and human children.
Whenever it came to play, I went full force with all my strength, running around vigorously, until I collapsed in an instant like a string had been snapped in my back.
On top of her childish tendency, she was the fast Balaur species. As expected, it was impossible to keep up.
I thought a little.
“By the way Rhea let me see your speed. Will you tell me how fast you can go by going around Pasaron as fast as you can?”
Rhea nodded, then without hesitation took off as fast as the wind.
“Wow, she’s fast…I wouldn’t be able to catch up even if she got a little head start.”
“What? She’s faster than you?”
“Certainly my Dragon Born form is fast, but at this point it would take about 10 seconds to catch up.”
Colette said in surprise.
“Yes…that is the truth”
I could catch up in my Dragon Born form.
However, it would still take 10 seconds to close the distance and catch up to Rhea who was far ahead.
Furthermore, it would deplete a tremendous amount of energy.
If it takes as long as 10 seconds it is like saying “I can’t catch up”.
“Well, it’s a challenge.”
“By myself, I can make up to five Dragon Balls.”
“I see. Thank you.”
I pet Colette.
Compared to Rhea I had to stroke a little harder.
While this was happening, Rhea who had been going at an incredible speed turned around and began to come back with equally as much speed.
I thought I had a chance to hug her properly and stood at the ready. However, just before she reached me, she put on the breaks.
Being able to put on the breaks after just being at top speed was amazing, but Rhea was looking at me cautiously.
No, she was looking behind me.
I turned around. At the entrance of Parsolon, there was a princess getting out of a carriage that I had never seen before.
The unknown carriage waited for the princess as she made her way over.
“What is the matter? What is that?”
“My sincerest apologies. I am a merchant who wanted to meet Master Cyril.”
“Merchant. Ooh, did you ask for me?”
“Yes, how should we proceed?”
“Have you heard the stories?”
“No. I want to have a business negation with you, Master Cyril.”
A big business negotiation that I had to directly be involved in.
“Alright, I’ll listen to what you have to say.”
Perhaps because this princess was not “Jeanne” she reserved her response to a meek nod and turned back towards the carriage at the entrance.[Read this novel and other amazing translated novels from the original source at the “Novel Multiverse dot com” website @ novelmultiverse.com]
We were inside the living room of a house.
I sat facing the princess and an old man she brought along.
The old man was dressed in a well-tailored suit and had a pleasant smile on his face.
“It is an honor to meet you. My name is Pierre Gounon.”
“I’m Cyril Larose.”
“For a long time, I have heard rumors.”
“That’s fine, but what is the purpose here? Princess…I think it would be best if we ask the Royal Highness to be here as well…”
“We apologize for the intrusion. The dragon that was playing with you earlier…”
“Rhea? What about her?”
“Would you show me that dragon again?”
“Please, I beg of you.”
I thought about it for a little while.
I looked at Pierre and tried to gauge my gut reaction.
I didn’t know what to do but their intentions didn’t seem bad.
Even if they did, Pierre was just an old man.
Even if they tried to do something to Rhea, they wouldn’t be able to stop me from changing into my Dragon Born form if we were in the same room.
“Okay, I understand.”
I nodded and stood up.
I opened the window, looked outside, and called in a loud voice.
“Rhea? Are you there?!”
I called in a loud voice and after a while Rhea appeared. I leaned out the window and faced Rhea.
“Would you come here for a minute?”
She nodded, and with a small jump, she jumped up.
I caught Rhea in my arms and brought her into the room.
Then I returned to Pierre and the princess who had been silent the whole time.
“Is this the child?”
“Is it alright if I take a quick look?”
I put Rhea on the table.
Rhea looked at me concerned and I pet her head to reassure her.
Pierre looked at Rhea.
He took out a magnifying from his breast pocket and began to examine her seriously.
“Oooh! This is a Master Dragon and it’s even the original species!”
Guigo’s information was correct.
“What do you mean?”
I was alarmed in an instant as I asked Pierre. He replied in a hurry.
“Excuse me. I received the information about a deal from a man named Guigo. I happened to hear your conversation in the front of the store.”
“The gist is that Master Cyril has a Master Dragon.”
I was certainly talking to Colette at the time. The fact that the conversation was heard was my fault.
“I’ll cut straight to the chase. Will you give us this child?”
“We have prepared one million Reals here. They are in church notes but if you would prefer cash, we can do that.”
I said without hesitation. I didn’t even need to think about it.
“Ugh, then…then how about two… no five million?!”
While Pierre raised the price, the princess sitting next to him let out a sigh. The price of five million seemed steep even for the royal family.
“Absolutely not. She is not for sale.”
“I will give you whatever your heart desires, just name your price.”
“I don’t want money.”
“Do you know who I am?”
“Of course, you are the person everyone is talking about.”
“Do you know the name of my guild?”
“The name of your guild? Why would…hah!”
Pierre remembered to his surprise.
“Does it make sense to come to a member of “Dragon First’ asking for a dragon to be sold to you for money?”
“I sincerely apologize.”
Pierre silently lowered his head.
“I apologize for making you uncomfortable with my thoughtless behavior.”
“Well as long as you understand now that is fine.”
“Yes. I will withdraw to Japan.”
Pierre said as he stood up.
Did that mean he had given up?
At that moment, a white light pierced my mind. I said the words that came to mind.
“In the future if anything happens to Rhea, I will go to you.”
“Because it would make sense that you use your strength to kidnap her.”
“We…such a thing…”
“Oh, I know. Just so you know I will perform an exhaustive search.”
“Yes, I will go through every possibility. And your place would be the first place I would look.”
“I will pray that does not happen.”
Pierre looked as if he was suppressing bitter feelings as he thanked me and left the room.
The princess stood up.
“My sincerest apologies for presenting such a request to you Master Cyril.”
“It’s fine. It was an honest business negotiation after all.”
“I sincerely apologize all the same…but Master Cyril. Why would you threaten him? Even if you hadn’t said that Gounon is an honorable merchant….”
“I understand. He is an influential person, isn’t he?”
“That being the case, I’m sorry but I wanted to put up a barrier.”
“Hmm, for example, he couldn’t do much by himself, but if were to throw around his influence and use his power to go against Rhea, he could damage our business. There will be damage from me, and he may start rumors that I stole her due to business not going well.”
The princess put her hands together and her eyes opened wide as she smiled.
“You are amazing Master Cyril!! You couldn’t even be swayed from your morals by five million Reals!”
I returned her smile. I thought that the Master Dragon was amazing.[Read this novel and other amazing translated novels from the original source at the “Novel Multiverse dot com” website @ novelmultiverse.com]
