The next morning, I was eating breakfast after I had finished with training when a flurry of people came by. They were the people from the previous dungeon attack. I organized my presence of mind and greeted them with a polite smile.
Oh! So you’re here to buy potions! Thank you for your patronage!
I was feeling afraid because both Margo and Juno stayed expressionless. People tend to become expressionless when they are really angry, right? Since they came here so suddenly even though they had already visited me not too long ago, that must’ve meant they were forced to come abruptly too. If not, they would’ve already said something to me when they visited me before.
Sarasa was with us today too, she looked extremely worried.
That stupid nobleman gallantly descended from his horse with a wonderful smile on his face. He grabbed my shoulder tight with his right hand and said something that sounded like “I’m counting on you” to me.
I could feel the tears coming from my eyes. The song ‘donna donna’ started to flow in my head again when…
That incident occurred.
That stupid nobleman’s right arm was suddenly torn off from the base. It was happening so suddenly that I didn’t know what had just happened. Fresh blood started gushing out from the open wound. I was stained red with blood. My consciousness instantly froze.
In the sky, a big winged lizard was flying and roaring.
I fell into a state of panic.
I grabbed a hold of Ash, who was standing nearby me and raised my shield up against the flying lizard in the sky while leaning against the stump chair and activated ‘fortress’. I tried to make my body as small as possible behind the shield.
Please, don’t let that lizard notice me!!
Juno pulled Sarasa’s hand and took her to hide in the blacksmith workshop. The Healer-san from that Unparalleled Five helped in stopping the bleeding from that stupid nobleman’s arm.
Among the other Unparalleled Five, the guild master, Kai-sensei, Tank-san and Magician-san were starting to launch an attack on that flying lizard. This was already at the level of the Great Monster War.
I curled myself up behind my shield, shivering and trembling while holding onto Ash.
An earth-shattering roar reverberated, along with the sound of angry voices and tremendous roar. I timidly looked out from behind the shield to see the glimpse of the flying lizard being directly hit by the tornado magic. The injured dragon then flew away, running from us.
Although a lot of us were injured, none of them seemed to have died. Margo, Juno and Sarasa were also safe.
After making sure that the flying lizard had gone, I gave potions to the injured person. That stupid nobleman was somehow able to escape death but he seemed to be in a state of shock. His face was ghastly pale. Feeling merciful, I also gave potion for that stupid nobleman to drink.
The area around my house became a mess. Some of my fields became ruined but I should still be satisfied because I was able to keep my life intact.
After all the wounded people were tended to, the guild master decided to withdraw for today. The dungeon attack personel returned to town while walking around the wagon carrying the wounded stupid nobleman.
T/N: That stupid nobleman is still not giving up… Hopefully after losing his right arm, that nobleman can finally have some working brain cells… Also, dragon?! MC THERE’S DRAGON NEAR YOUR HOUSE? ISN’T TIME FOR YOU TO IDK SEEK SHELTER SOMEWHERE ELSE?
