Chapter 77

When I noticed, I was a dragon .

……Or at least that was what I couldn’t help thinking from the view that was spreading before me .


Under the expanse of the sky which continued until the edge of horizon, ‘I’ turned swiftly while receiving the wind on ‘my’ wings .

It wasn’t only my sense of vision, but I could also feel the wind pressure struck my skin and wings, and hear the sound of the whirlwind .

Furthermore, I was still holding hands with Auguste on the deck of the aircraft carrier .


Surely, Auguste used the unusual power of Theurge, but—

What should I do, somehow the information flowing into my brain was too much for me to handle .


“Oops, sorry . I unintentionally transfer the entire thing .

I will reduce it a bit over to my direction . ”


Along with Auguste’s words, the burden suddenly became lighter .

At the same time, the tactile and auditory senses of the dragon disappeared and only kept the visual information .

It felt like I was looking over the sky from a camera attached to a dragon .

In the meantime, the position of the camera gradually lowered backwards and became a viewpoint straddling the back of the dragon’s neck .


“How about now?”



In a position that embraced me from behind, Auguste was also sitting there .

It was like a two-seater ride on a horse .

I rode on top of the dragon unknowingly, but it didn’t feel like it, my hair and dress didn’t flutter at all .

Perhaps this ‘me’ and ‘Auguste’ were only images that were not substantive to make it easier for the senses to be muted .


“An ancient dragon in the sky above this city lent me his eyes .

It seems that he was the Throne of the King of the olden days, in other words my ancestor, and he missed that time terribly .

I cannot take you to ride on top of a dragon with the real body, but there is a method like this . ”

“I think that this is very wonderful . ”

“Let’s try to lower the altitude . Knot Reed seen from the sky is also beautiful . ”


In the span of a few seconds, the dragon with our images on top rotated his body and moved in an inverted flight .

The dragon started a steep descent with a movement like diving into the sea of clouds through the back .


Piercing through a layer of thick clouds, the visibility became clear at once .

A beautiful jade-colored canal rings spread below us, forming a geometrical figure .

The irregularly arranged orange roofs, when viewed from above Knot Reed, seemed like crystals .

The way the large and small boats traveling through the canals and bays made me feel like I was currently looking into an elaborate machine .

The light of the lighthouse could be seen through the mist that was hanging over the sea in intervals .

Lots of wagons and people were crowding in the Town of All Kinds of Goods, and it seemed that it was also prospering today .


“Since this is a rare moment, take a look at whatever you like . I will focus it for you . ”

“Yes . ”


Prompted by Auguste, I concentrated on the visual information .

First of all, this .

Find a ship that stood out among the many ships floating in the bay .

The new aircraft carrier we were riding .


As if nestling close to the new aircraft carrier, another slightly smaller aircraft was beside it .

Compared to the old model, the new type seemed to be two or three times larger .


I could see myself and Auguste on the other side .

It was a strange feeling to see my own figure from the sky with my own eyes .

There were also the figures of Tirnanog and Palug at our feet .

I waved my hand reflexively, but when I thought about it carefully, the other side should only be able to see the dragon .


“Do you understand the trick?”

“Yes . Somehow . ”

“That’s nice, so let’s try it quickly . ”


I took a closer look at the city of Knot Reed as I was told .

After a few seconds of staring, the vision zoomed in to the distance at once as if I were right above the crowd of people .

Even if the time lag due to Auguste’s response was subtracted, the eyes of a dragon were frighteningly high-function .


I looked at Water Palace which was easy to find at the moment .

It was a beautiful building even from the sky .

Perhaps Harold’s father, Earl Nibelheim, was running around somewhere inside, but as expected I couldn’t see through the building .

In the square in front of the palace, the monks who seemed to live in the nearby church were playing with the neighborhood’s children .


I moved to the guild hall which was the next conspicuous building .

Bernhard, the notary public, was in the square in front of the guild hall and was stopping a horse-drawn carriage .

It seemed that the man who was steering the horse carriage was the elderly coachman who was said to be favored by Turm family .

When Bernhard got into the carriage, he removed his pince-nez and polished it with a cloth .

I couldn’t read the documents on his lap, but were they related to Earl Nibelheim as well?


As I kept following the canal, I arrived at Barker Street .

I saw a woman with red braid pursuing a barrel that seemed to have been thrown off balance .

She was the perfumer Bell that had scattered the bergamots before this .

The one that stopped the barrel was Gilbert who had something like a sandwich in one hand .

After the two gazed at each other for a while, Gilbert averted his eyes awkwardly .

I was somewhat curious about their speech, but as expected the dragon’s ears didn’t pick up voices .


At Crucible Street, I could see Harold who was in low spirits loitering in front of the wand store .

The store owner who was yawning as he came out to put up the sign while preparing found him .

The store owner pushed Harold’s back and invited him to the store with a somewhat gentle gesture even though he was frowning .


There were children meeting at the bridge between Crucible Street and Goblin Street .

Everyone had a fishing rod in their hands .

A lanky boy was waving his hand to get the others to come along, and they kept running while laughing .


In Crescent Moon Street two bridges away from Goblin Street .

Sergei, who was Harold’s acquaintance, was carrying a packed box of potions into a pharmacy-like store .

Speaking of which, he was a potion maker .

Sergei shrugged his shoulders with a strained laugh to the pharmacy’s shopkeeper’s gestures that looked as if he was gulping a beer mug .


Three girls in uniforms, who seemed to be the clerks of some sort of business, were buying some sweets by pooling their money together .

It seemed that the proprietress, who seemed to be a baked-confectionery seller, increased the number of the candies one for each of them as a service .

The girls were walking away while chatting after thanking the proprietress .

The cookies they got were in human shape, similar to the one I ate when I was given the magic lecture .

I wondered if that woman was the one called ‘Gizella-obasan’ .

Gizella’s store seemed to be popular, and customers ranged from adults to children were constantly visiting .


In the miniature-like city, everybody’s livelihood was alive .

Since I was watching from the dragon’s point of view, everyone felt cute .

Just as I was thinking about such a thing, I could feel my head was becoming heavy again .


“……It seems that you will reach your limit soon . Take a deep breath . ”


Auguste’s palm covered my eyes on the image .

In the darkness, I slowly took a deep breath .

I felt that I gradually returned to my own body, which felt far away .

I finally felt like I got my feet back on the ground .


When I opened my eyes, Auguste let me go in a relieved state .

The moment I was released, exhaustion suddenly washed over me .

Although I didn’t notice it when I was absorbed in the experience, it seemed that it was a considerable burden even when it was only the visual sense .


“I’m sorry I didn’t notice that it was a burden on your body . ”

“No, I’m happy that you have showed me something rare .

Auguste-sama always sees such a beautiful world, huh . ”


When he heard my words, a proud smile showed on his face .


“Can you use this Theurge technique to be in complete control when you do it by yourself?”

“Well, if I am compatible with the dragon, I can share senses with them for hours .

It seems that I will be able to do something like what Professor did before long, but I haven’t actually experienced it personally . ”

“Really . ”

“But, it’s pretty difficult if it the other party is a human .

If the other party is not conscious of me, defenseless, and compatible—”


Auguste raised his right hand straight .

Then, ten people who were chatting on the deck raised their right hand at exactly the same timing .


“In this way, I can interfere with just a bit of action at a harmless level .

It’s difficult if the person is conscious of me or has a magic defense .

Since the compatibility is generally bad with the Visitor’s Clan, it seems that it is useless unless I use the power while in full contact with the person .

If even that doesn’t seem to work, I have to invite their spirit to my side . ”

“I see……”

“It’s fine . You don’t need to worry, I won’t use this power for wrongdoings . ”

“You don’t have the tendency to do such bad things . ”

“Erica is kind, for you to have such faith in me .

Even if I look like this, I may be a devil, you know?”

“No, no, you’re a self-proclaimed angel, right?”


Towards my reply, Auguste burst out laughing .

While looking up at the cheerful prince, Palug who was at our feet looked happy .


“Oops, you must be tired, sorry for keeping you here for too long .

I will be the one to tell Sir Ernst, so you’d better take some rest in the cabin . ”

“Thank you for your thoughtfulness . ”

“You also come again~ . Next time I’m going to pat you a lot, so prepare yourself, okay~?”


Auguste lifted Palug and tickled her under her chin .

Palug narrowed her eyes pleasantly in Auguste’s arms .


Auguste called a servant and asked him to guide us .

I took Tirnanog and Palug and left the deck behind .
