front! Let the rest of the village prepare the ballista!”
I yell at Dee as I run and give instructions to the people in front.
Just then, I pass Espada, who stops to look at me.
I yelled his name as I turned around.
Espada looked at the dragon coming towards us and started to prepare his magic.
When the dragon reached the fortification wall, it kicked the ground and jumped up, placing its upper body on top of the wall and attaching itself to the wall with the claws of its front paws piercing the inner wall.
I gasped at the green forest dragon glaring at me as if to check on me in that state.
I had been so proud after defeating the Armored Lizard.
That thing was different from any other magical beast around.
With its wings damaged, it had no choice but to run on the ground, and yet its power was all the same.
“Espada, let’s get out of here!”
I shout, but Espada doesn’t move.
“If you don’t run fast, I won’t run either!”
I exclaimed again.
Then Espada showed his profile with a thin smile.
“That’s a problem, I’m afraid.
Well, let’s just buy ourselves some time and head back, Van-sama, after you.”
“I said we have to go back together!”
Espada chuckled and activated her magic against the dragon, who had easily climbed over the castle walls.
A huge wall of earth appeared in front of the dragon, which used the wall as a launching pad, and the dragon crashed face-first into it.
The earth rumbled, and the earth wall created by Espada collapsed, but the dragon also stopped moving as it was buried in the rubble.
I guess that bought us some time.”
Espada muttered as he stroked his chin between his fingers, then turned on his heel and came towards us.
But it was too late.
“Yes, no walking! Run! I’ll buy Espada a bottle of your favorite red wine if you try!”
“It’s hard for my old bones to run, but I’ll do my best.”
I scolded him, and Espada ran as fast as he could jog.
“Van-sama, I will help you with Espada-sama, go ahead!”
Camsin and I switch places and I start running again.
We were almost at the main gate of the village, but it felt strangely far away, Ortho and the others had already done a lot of running, so they were running slow.
“Boy! We’re in position!”
Panamella shouted loudly, as she was on top of the village wall.
Looking over, all the ballista on the bulwark were already in position with the villagers who would be the firing squad.
“Load the arrows and prepare to fire! You have to draw them in, or they won’t hit! Just make sure you’re ready!”
I instructed as I ran, and the villagers hurried to begin preparations.
Perhaps because it was a ballista of a size they were used to, their preparations were completed more quickly than ours.
“What about me! Can I move on my own?”
Panamella asked me, and I inwardly felt a little surprised as I answered.
“Also, please use the magic you just used to stop it at the last moment! That’s where we’ll aim the ballista!”
Panamella laughed in amusement as she replied.
“Good plan! But this is the first time my magic has been used to halt someone!”
“Sorry about that, could you let me off with some dragon meat!”
“Hahahaha! All right! Now, that meat is about to start moving!”
I turned around at Panamella’s words, and sure enough, the dragon was pushing away the debris to reveal itself.
I shouted loudly and turned my attention back to the entrance of the village.
