Leaving the room where Jade and Quartz were, Ruri headed to the fifth ward to see Yuan.
The training ground in District 5 seemed to be more spirited than usual. I don’t think it’s Ruri’s fault that there’s more blood splatter than usual. Ruri, who was getting used to the training scenery of the dragon tribe, also wanted to turn around and return.
She looked around the training grounds and sees Yuan’s figure and approaches her.
“Yuan, can I ask you a little favor?”
“What’s going on? I’m busy too, you know.”
“It doesn’t look like it”
They didn’t seem to be doing anything in particular, just watching the soldiers doing their training.
“Surveillance. They’re getting too worked up about the tournament. Seriousness. If they go on the rampage, the castle will be destroyed, and we need someone to stop them.
“Watching them. They’re too nervous because the competition is getting close. If they went on a rampage, the castle will be destroyed, they need someone to stop them.”
“Oh, you don’t know. There’s a tournament coming up soon to decide the dragon king.”
“Does that tournament decide the dragon king?”
“The Dragon King will be the strongest. We’ll fight in that tournament and decide the strongest dragon. The soldiers who are training for that battle are so bloodshot that it’s hard to keep them down.”
In the training ground, Ruri saw the scene and found it convincing.
“Does that mean Jade-sama will participate too?”
“Of course, he will. It’s compulsory for the Dragon King to participate.”
“So, what do you want me to do?”
“I want to go to town. Jade-sama said it’s fine if I have a bodyguard, so I want Yuan to follow me.”
“Why don’t you ask Joshua?”
“He’s out. It seems like he’s not in the Dragon Kingdom right now, he’s out for work”
“He’s too busy. When do you want to go?”
She hasn’t thought that far yet. Then, just like Yuan, Finn was also monitoring the training grounds.
“Joshua would probably go to Yadakain.”
“Yadakain? That witch country or something?”
“Oh, there was a testimony that a witch was involved in the matter of the Shintoism earlier, wasn’t there? So, His Majesty is concerned about the connection to Yadakain. That’s why Joshua had to go investigate.”
Apparently, Joshua has been assigned to investigate Yadakain because he is actually familiar with the events in the Beast Kingdom.
“But brother, is Joshua going to be okay? I don’t think we’ll be able to get enough information about Yadakain.”
“Are you worried about something?”
“In the past, the Dragon King had frequent diplomatic relations with Yadakain, but after the incident of the Spirit Killer, Yadakain also began to seclude himself and the Dragon King did not want to get actively involved, so now they are in a state of isolation. The spy went to Yadakain several times, but they complained that they didn’t get much information because they were too wary of strangers to be in the country for a long time. So, we know very little about what kind of country Yadakain is now.”
“Then wouldn’t they be alarmed if they found a stranger, Joshua?”
“Are you sure about that? Something happened to Joshua…”
It will stand up well because of Joshua, but I can’t say for sure. After all, it’s a dangerous country where you can make magic to kill spirits. If there might be a connection with that Shintoism, it is even more so. The fact that they don’t know what kind of country it is because they don’t have any information adds to their anxiety.
“It’s okay. Joshua is a good information officer. He’ll soon be back with a hailbombed face.”
As if to reassure Ruri, Finn patted her head lightly.
“You’re going into town, aren’t you? Yuan, make sure you protect Ruri firmly.”
“Of course, brother. As long as I’m around, I won’t let them touch you!”
“Yeah, I’m counting on you.”
At Finn’s words, the brazen Yuan seems to be happy, wagging his invisible tail.
In addition to the fact that it’s the same face that she saw a few days ago.
“Oh, it’s Jade-sama”
“What’s the big deal? What’s wrong with His Majesty?”
“No, I met with the previous dragon king, Quartz-sama, earlier, and the reaction of Jade-sama talking to Quartz-sama was like Yuan’s reaction to dealing with Finn-san.”
The attitude shows too much trust in the other person.
“The previous Dragon King. I hear you’re back now, though I’ve never met you.”
Yuan doesn’t seem to know much about Quartz, but on the contrary, Finn smiles bitterly at Ruri’s words as if he knows a lot about Quartz as well.
“Your Majesty is like Yuan. It can’t be helped. To His Majesty, Quartz-sama is like me to Yuan. I’m not sure if it’s a good idea, but I’m sure it’s a good idea. On the contrary, Quartz-sama was good at controlling his magical power and was able to take care of His Majesty. That’s why His Majesty loves Quartz-sama like an older brother.”
That would make sense then.
Jade would also make a subtle face if he was compared to a bro-con Yuan, but the expression he was giving Quartz was a face that could be rightly described as a bro-son brother.
“With Quartz-sama being the predecessor and the current Dragon King being Jade-sama, it means that Jade-sama beat Quartz-sama in the tournament, right?”
I would have liked to see the fight then, Ruri thought. But…
“No, the two of you aren’t fighting.”
“Oh, really? But Yuan said that the Dragon King’s participation is mandatory?”
Finn’s expression darkens when he asks that question. Yuan doesn’t notice it.
“His Majesty the First King abdicated in the middle of his term of office. I’m sure you’ll be able to find a great deal more information on this in the article. After that, his father left the country and was never heard from again.”
“Why did he abdicated?”
“Come on, I wasn’t up in the castle yet at the time. I’m sure brother would know, wouldn’t he?”
Turning his gaze to Finn, Yuan finally noticed that Finn had an unflattering expression on his face.
“No, Quartz-sama has been through a lot, a lot of things.”
Ruri and Yuan looked at each other.
They could see that there was something that was difficult to say, and the atmosphere made it difficult to ask any more questions, so they kept their mouths shut.
