Became a Servant the Dragons Are Obsessed With chapter 12
12 – History of the Drango Continent and its servants
Valkyrie Island of the Drango Continent.
A heavenly fortress and Hetzling’s cradle.
This was an educational institution built by all dragon clans in cooperation to prepare for a crisis on the continent. To prevent a recurrence of a cataclysm like a cruel nightmare that may happen again.
It has been over 300 years since I entered the academy. Now, in 100 years, it will be the graduation I dreamed of.
Yes, if he endures this short period of time, he will finally escape the name Hetzling and become a Jackie Chan.
The bookshelf slides along the fingers.
At the same time, the contents of the book are drawn in the head.
The mana contained in the dragon’s words responds to me and creates voices and images in front of my eyes.
It is easy to understand if you think of it as an audiovisual material. The feeling of absorbing information about what you want to understand just by reading it in your head… … .
‘Since it’s been a while since I picked up a book, shall I read it thoroughly from the beginning?’
[…] The Academy of Valkyrie Island is an academy island for Hetzling, and there has never been such a transcendent educational institution on the continent… ]
That would be the case, we are the 1st class students.
No Hetzling has graduated from the academy yet.
As such, the history of the academy was also short.
If it wasn’t for ‘that incident’, the descendants of all the clans would never have gathered together like this.
Even in the book, it was true that the incident caused a crisis on the continent, but it was described as the moment when the clan was united for the first time thanks to it.
Dragons originally had a strong pride and were not interested in anything other than their clan’s territory. That’s why the clan didn’t cooperate or even interact well.
However, a long time ago, the Great Dragon War broke out that encompassed the entire Drango continent.
It was not a fight between dragon clans or a war caused by humans. It was a war to confront the existence that threatened all living things on the continent.
Ironically, the cause of the war was a dragon.
His true identity is Detronos, an ancient dragon, one of the origins of dragons.
According to the record in the history book, he wanted to dye the whole world into darkness as a being born in darkness. His goal is to make all lands on the continent his rare.
When I read the article 「Ancient Dragon, Detronos」, the silhouette of a huge dragon covered with scales like obsidian is drawn in my head.
A gigantic being that makes you feel awe just by looking at it. Just the image that pops into my head is enough to give me goosebumps all over my body.
It is said that Detronos’s ambitions even broke out into war and caused friction with the ancestor dragons.
That was the 1st Demon Dragon War.
It is said that this war lasted for a very long time.
Still, the ancestors who joined forces after a long war of attrition were able to subdue him. Unfortunately, however, the ancestors lost their power due to the long war.
Because of that, I couldn’t completely annihilate him.
Instead, he could have been sealed.
A mountain located in the center of the Drango continent,
On top of a mountain named Desperino.
After the ancestors sealed him in Mount Desperino, they had no choice but to expect future generations.
I hoped that one day someone who could annihilate its existence would surely appear, and I have kept that position all the time.
so that the same war will never happen again.
To this end, the male dragons of all clans left behind their families and lairs and gathered together at Desperino Mountain to cooperate.
However, despite these efforts,
Unfortunately, the guy eventually resurrected.
About 500 years ago, the seal had been broken.
Whether it was because the seal was old or because it was neglected, no one knew what caused it.
It was because when Detronos woke up, all the male dragons guarding Mount Desperino were devastated.
‘My father, who resisted and endured until the end, was also at this time… … .’
However, Detronos, who was fortunately released from the seal during misfortune, hid in the darkness and shadows and has never been seen until now.
According to the book, they are buying time to regain the lost demonic power.
As soon as he woke up, another crisis arose on the continent of Drango.
The number of males had been severely reduced due to the long war, but most of the remaining males were exterminated when the seal was broken.
Naturally, it was difficult to find male dragons now.
That’s why, 400 years ago, to prepare for the upcoming crisis, he belatedly set up an academy on Valkyrie Island.
Fortunately, peace has been maintained so far. Except for minor incidents.
“Um… … .”
Sophia let out a saliva and began to become more and more absorbed in the contents of the book.
“… Hey Sophia? If you don’t mind, can I know about the contents of the book you are reading?”
“ah? Mr. Breeder?”
A silver-haired man talks to Sophia, who is enjoying coffee and biscuits while reading a history book.
In his hand was a small paper bag.
“Ah, I apologize if I interrupted your reading. Please forgive my rudeness.”
Breather, who was holding a paper bag in front of him, suddenly bowed. I wondered if I might have offended Sophia, so I was hypersensitive.
“I was just curious about the contents because it seemed to be a history book rather than a different meaning.”
“Puhuh… … .”
Sophia gave a small smile at this.
I was just shaking my head
It was just cute to see him apologizing as if he had committed a mortal sin.
“I am okay. I was just reading for review. So keep your head up.”
“Thank you Sophia for your mercy”
The breeder servant was somewhat unusual.
Silver hair and black eyes, too, but
His way of dealing with the dragon stood out.
He was a human being who seemed to be smart in his words and actions, but also had a clever side to him. And above all… … .
“By the way, how did you know the book I was reading was a history book?”
“yes? I thought it was a history book because it said ‘History of the Drango Continent’ on the cover of the book.”
“… … ?!”
Sophia’s face instantly stiffened at his obvious answer.
Sophia’s surprise was simple.
It was because the history book she was reading was written in ‘Dragon’, the language of dragons.
“Oh! And take this.”
Before Sofia could even ask how she knew the dragon, the breather threw in a paper bag. As if he was trying to avoid an embarrassing situation, he immediately brought out what he had prepared.
“This, this… … ?”
It contained the coffee biscuits he had made.
It was something the breeder had set aside for her.
‘I have to raise Sophia’s favorability somehow. If quality isn’t good, we’ll have to compete with quantity.’
The breeder’s purpose was unwavering.
Attack of SSR class dragons.
It worked for all other dragons.
Only Sofia had failed to communicate.
Because of that, a strange desire to win arose.
I wanted to attack Sophia somehow.
Of course, even if I fail again, I just wanted to raise my favorability rating.
And he had one more second-best purpose.
“History of the Drango Continent”
The breeder’s eyes were focused on the history book Sophia was reading.
It was sad to fall into a world without any prior information, but because I was a slave, it was difficult to build background knowledge about this world. For that reason, basic knowledge about this world was required.
In the first place, the story of the game was left behind and only the gacha was played, and the information was too poor because it was possessed.
In the yard where the full-fledged semester began, the information provided by the faculty was not enough.
That’s why I thought of borrowing a book in order to get Sofia’s favor by bringing more cookies.
“What is it all of a sudden?”
“As you can see, it’s a biscuit.”
“Did I ask because I didn’t know that?”
“Ah, I made extra, but before the other ladies took it all, Sophia-sama’s portion was set aside.”
The breeder’s answer puzzled Sophia once again.
“yes? for me?”
“Other ladies have asked for more coffee and cookies several times, but Sophia-sama has been reading all the time. So, I thought I might need more, so I prepared more like this.”
For a newcomer, his conduct was excellent.
Besides, it didn’t look like anything special.
Although clever, there was a strange sincerity in his actions.
「Dang-! dang-! dang-! dang-! dang-! Dang-!」
Just in time, the grandfather clock points to 6 o’clock.
Now it’s time to close the door to the break room.
And soon it was the dragon’s evening time.
“Haha, it’s about time… … ?”
Sophia looks around the empty break room and is embarrassed.
Reading while enjoying tea and refreshments was her noble hobby after school, so she didn’t even notice the time passing.
Especially today was the entrance ceremony, so I had a lot of free time. That’s why I was able to sit in the break room all day and indulge in reading.
“It’s my little courtesy, so I hope you’ll accept it before you leave.”
“Oh, thank you. I will receive it well.”
“Oh, and Sophia-sama? If it’s not rude, can I read that book too?”
“… … ?”
Sophia stares at Breeder’s face as if asking what that means.
“How could it not be… ? I am also very interested in the history of the Drango continent.”
“yes? Are you serious about that?”
“Sure. This is where I have to dedicate myself to serving the ladies from now on—”
“No, I was just asking if you could read dragon words.”
“… … ?!”
This time, the breeder hesitates at Sophia’s question. It was only then that he realized that it was a book written in verbs at Sophia’s question.
‘That’s written as a dragon… … ?’
He didn’t even know that the book was written in verbs.
In his eyes, they all looked the same, and even the words were translated and heard in his ears… … .
“… Big! Yes. Very little, but I know how to read it roughly.”
At the point where he had already read the cover, the breeder nodded while partially admitting that he was futile.
In response to this, Sophia’s eyes sparkle with interest and her lips move.
“How can a human be able to read a dragon word even roughly… … . well, good Now that I have received the biscuits, I will leave the book here.”
“Thank you so much!”
“but… … .”
“Could you make a different dessert for me?”
“A different kind of dessert for Sophia… … ?”
The breeder shows a puzzled expression and asks a question cautiously.
“Could you make me a dessert with mint in it? To be honest, today’s cookies weren’t too bad, but I want to try a dessert with mint added next time.”
After her words, Sophia’s face was filled with anticipation. And as much as he was sincere about Mint, his eyes were twinkling.
“Me, Mint… … ?”
“yes. Do you think it’s possible with your skill?”
On the other hand, Breeder’s eyes were full of confusion.
‘Mint? Did you say it was a real mint? … ?’
As if asking why Mint?
“Whoa, what a strange person you are… … .”
A subtle smile hung on Sophia’s face as she left the break room.
‘It’s strange that I read the verb, but did you think it would be possible to communicate with the verb?’
Sophia asked for a mint dessert and used a mixture of words in the middle.
Even if the characters can be learned somehow,
Conversing with dragons was a separate issue.
It was impossible unless mana flowed through the body.
Breeder spat out the dragon without stopping.
It’s to the point where you can believe it’s a dragon that transformed into a polymorph.
He didn’t even realize that he was speaking with a verb.
“This semester looks like it will be pretty fun.”
Sophia looked back at the dorm common room and murmured softly.
