How to Live as a Half-Dragon - Chapter 11
How to Live as a Half-Dragon chapter 11
Three Slayers, including Veronica, fell to the floor.
There was no one to say first.
It happened so quickly that it was meaningless to cover the order.
“Is there only one person who reacted?”
The one who subdued the three Slayers in a single moment was calm.
There was no sign of surprise or nervousness.
As if this is natural, I just express my feelings in a low voice.
“I don’t think I was like that… .”
Looking at the three fainted on the floor, the person who muttered that next confirmed was the corner of the cave.
A scarred Dragonian caught my eye.
Although injured and wounded, it was a dragonian who still boasted an off-white color.
“Can I help? Miss Hughes?”
The handcuffs holding Hughes’ wrists are special restraints made of mana light.
Since it absorbs mana non-stop, it was an object that most people who were detained could not cut off on their own. but… .
Hughes cut off the restraints and stood up with his quantum power, saying he didn’t need any help at her question.
As if she could have escaped at any time, even if it wasn’t for her.
“Still, it seems he hasn’t sent anyone.”
“know… Were you there?”
“What are you asking? Miss Hughes was a dragonian? Or that he sent you?”
In this case, it was a question that encompassed both, but well, that was irrelevant now.
Because I already found the answer I was looking for in her question.
“Kalad-nim asked Sarah not to be found out, but… .”
“why? Maybe I should ask where you are?”
“… … .”
Judging by the reaction, I guess it really was.
Sarah grumbled like it was ridiculous.
“What do you see people as… .”
“Still, Calad-nim has always been proud of Sarah-sama.”
“Of course! Who am I to live through this suffering!”
Still, Sarah’s voice was a little friendly, as if her mood was a little relaxed unlike her words.
“Why were you arrested anyway? From the looks of it, I think I can handle it lightly at this level.”
Even if there were dozens of low-level Slayers, if he could lightly cut off the handcuffs in such a wounded state, he would not be able to compete with them.
It doesn’t make sense to be caught by only three people in the first place.
“Because if you deal with the Slayers in the village, there will be problems.”
In the village of Orn, lives Xian, no one else.
If the Slayer is killed or injured, additional personnel will eventually be dispatched from the headquarters, and that will put Xi’an at risk.
“Then what is Miss Hughes’ purpose?”
“I cannot go into detail. But I’m sure you’re on your son’s side.”
“hmm… . What is it?”
Hey, it was clear that he had no intention of harming Xian, just by looking at his actions during his stay in the village.
No, in fact, the reason I came here today was because I knew that.
“Miss Hughes, let me ask you one favor.”
“I’m begging you… ?”
“Please stay by Xi’an’s side until she arrives at her mother’s house.”
* * *
‘You’re gone… ?’
Xian, who opened the door and checked outside, wondering if it was an illusion, was dumbfounded.
It was really the reason my mother disappeared without leaving a trace.
Seeing the ceaseless rain, Xian calmly fell into thought.
That thought came to mind for a moment, but Xian immediately erased the hypothesis from his mind.
If it was a kidnapping, it would have been better if there were no traces left.

Moreover, the current situation seemed a little nonsensical to see it as a kidnapping.
Because my mother obviously left the house on her own two feet.
Even with a raincoat.
‘Can I have no choice but to wait?’
Aren’t you worried about your mother?
But there was no way of knowing where he had gone.
Not to mention, I don’t know anything.
For what purpose and why?
Even in which direction he went, Xian had no idea.
So I have to wait… .
“If the roads cross each other, it will be a big problem.”
Conversely, the mother worries about herself, and there may be a commotion.
After returning to her seat, Xian sat on the bed and waited.
In my ears, I heard the sound of rain falling non-stop.
Sometimes thunder can also be heard.
‘Anyway, I knew you weren’t an ordinary person… .’
Xian was surprised inside.
A mother with amazing abilities for an ordinary villager.
Of course, Xian already knew that his mother was an extraordinary person, but he thought it was just knowledge.
“But now I don’t think so.”
It was clear that the physical ability also had something that Xian did not know about.
‘Because he said she was a noble lady.’
She was also the daughter of a fairly prestigious family.
If Xian didn’t know this, he wouldn’t have been so calm, but now that he knew it, there was nothing to panic about.
“Should I see them as more than Slayers?”
Although they were low-ranking slayers, even they couldn’t dare to disappear at once to avoid Xian’s feelings.
But my mother did it.
There was no problem even if it was at least on the same level as the Slayers.
“Will the rain stop soon?”
As in the rainy season in summer, the non-stop raindrops are weakening.
Around the time when it was hard to find the rules, the sound of hitting the ground became smaller and the raindrops on the roof made an even melody.
I started to feel the presence of my mother who had disappeared.
It was a slow pace unlike when he went out.
‘But why two people?’
It was around the time that Xian was puzzled by the two pairs of sounds he could hear as well as the presence he could feel.
The next moment the door opened and my mother appeared.
“Are you awake?”
“Because of the thunder.”
There’s no need to lie, but I didn’t say it outright.
You can’t say that you woke up to the sound of leaving.
“I was a light sleeper, indeed.”
Of course, it seemed like he was caught.
Seeing the usual smile, Xian asked softly.
“But where have you been?”
“… … .”
The mother, who had been quietly making eye contact with Xian’s question, opened her mouth.
Xian turned his head to the presence outside the door.
Xian was very surprised to see the person waiting outside the door come inside.
‘Somehow it felt familiar!’
Curly hair down to the waist.
A neat and innocent appearance.
In addition to that, even the white skin that exudes a mysterious atmosphere.
Hughes tucked his light blue hair behind his ear and bowed politely.
“Nice to meet you, Sian.”
* * *
Xian was perplexed for a moment.
Why is Hughes, who was captured by the Slayers, still here?
Why did you come with your mother?
There was only one inference that could be made.
‘Could it be the mother?’
Xian’s head turned to her mother, who had just finished going out.
It was because I wondered if he had killed the Slayers.
‘Why did you do that?!’
I know that my mother is not an ordinary person, but if she has a long tail, she will be caught.
It was the time when I was afraid that there would be some kind of problem in the future because of this incident.
“I asked where you have been?”
“yes… ? Ah yes… .”
When Xi’an gave a bewildered answer, her mother smiled and said,
“draft. I think it’s time to leave home.”
Xian’s body froze for a moment.
did i hear it right?
Seeing that he must have heard it wrong, Xian asked again.
“I beg your pardon… ?”
“Leave the house with Hughes, Sian.”
Xian’s heart skipped a beat.
It was because he was telling me to leave alone.
It’s not that Xian didn’t think of the option of leaving town for today’s work.
However, it was a home with my mother to the end, and I had never thought of leaving alone.
“Are you going with me?”
And when he heard the answer from the question he asked just in case, Xian couldn’t help but become more confused.
It was the reason why I felt a stronger will than ever before.
Xian naturally spit out the question in his head.
It was because I couldn’t understand why I had to leave alone.
“uh… chop? Why do I have to leave alone?”
“I think the conversation is going to be long, so shall we sit down first?”
Both Mother and Hughes said that and moved to the table.
Xian had no choice but to move and sit down.
As he sat facing his mother, Hughes’ mother offered a seat as well.
“I want Hughes to sit there too.”
When Hughes acted modestly and sat next to Xian, the mother opened her mouth.
“Now, where should I start talking… .”
* * *
She was a human who hated dragons more than anyone else.
Do you have a grudge against dragons?
No, it wasn’t really like that.
That’s why he hates dragons, but the world doesn’t need such a thing.
If you are just a human being, you have been taught that you should be able to do that since childhood.
Propositions beyond doubt.
That’s why Sarah hated dragons.
Until I met him… .
‘Yes, it’s just about time.’
Sara has always been happy since she gave birth to Cyan.
Some sympathize with her raising a child alone and offer consolation at will, but for her, the past 10 years have been such a blessed time that she has no time to regret.
Proof that you and him are connected.
The only blood of his own in the world.
She had no regrets about caring for a child she loved, not a child of a dragon.
‘So maybe I didn’t want something like today to happen… .’
I hoped that Xi’an would realize the reality late.
The pain his son felt was also painful, but it was all because of his own happiness.
A bird that cannot courage itself cannot fly.
Sarah had a hunch that the time had come for her to fly, whether she liked it or not, and that the time had come for her to let go.
“So it’s time to leave.”
“I can’t understand. Why did I have to leave for that reason?”
A deep hatred sown among humans.
Just by realizing that, the young son asked why he had to break up with himself.
“Can you hang out with your friends as usual?”
Her heart was shaken, but Sara only spat out her words more firmly.
He drove them into a corner without giving them a chance to make excuses.
“Then what about the neighbours?”
“… … .”
“What about the villagers?”
“… … .”
“No, do you still love this town?”
“I don’t know about that, but if that’s the case, we can leave together.”
“Mom has to wait for Dad.”
I left with a promise to come back.
Although that’s already 10 years.
Although he wants to be savage because he didn’t even show his face for such a long time.
There must be more important things than coming to see you… .
Sara believes him when he says that she has something that needs to be done.
“… Are you coming back?”
“Don’t hate your father too much, he was such a sweet and funny man.”
It’s an expression that seems to be difficult to understand even his own words.
However, to Xian, he is nothing more than an indifferent father who neglected his family for 10 years.
It would be difficult to fully convince them in just a few words.
“… … .”
The son who keeps his mouth shut.
I feel sorry for the trembling hands that are tightly clasped on my lap, so I want to soothe them… .
Because parting is always hard.
Sara said in a bright voice, as if trying to freshen up the atmosphere.
“Would Mom recommend a way to be safe from the Slayers?”
Sara smiled bitterly at Xian’s slightly crying voice.
“Go to your grandfather’s house. And become a Slayer.”
“I don’t like Slayer. I don’t know why that’s a safe way.”
“Originally, it’s the darkest under the lamp, isn’t it?”
Sara pointed proudly under the back of the corner of the table.
“And above all, why do you think dragons are near extinction?”
Dragons are seemingly perfect creatures.
excellent physical abilities.
inexhaustible life span.
On the other hand, humans are weak.
His natural body was never strong compared to other creatures, let alone dragons.
Even so, dragons are in a position to be hunted by humans.
“Then try to find an answer to that. Then you will understand naturally.”
Leaving had already become an established fact.
Her son Xian, who was only 10 years old, thought so, and Sarah had already accepted it.
Sara looked at Hughes, who had been listening quietly all this time.
“As requested, take good care of Xian.”
Hughes nodded quietly, and Sara spoke to Xian.
“Miss Hughes will guide you on the way to your grandfather’s house. and… .”
Sarah got up and moved towards the kitchen.
There, she lifted the shabby wooden floor and returned with a pocket the size of a fist and a dagger.
“Take it and go, because there will be a place you need it.”
“Then go away.”
At her words, Xian stood up from his seat.
“Let’s go, Hughes.”
Xian got up from his seat and moved on.
Being a young but clever kid, he seemed to know that if he had to leave, it was better not to procrastinate.
The young dragon, about to leave the nest, stopped.
but don’t turn around
Sarah looked at her small back and said.
“I’ve lived as a human for about 10 years, so try living as a dragon. After living as a dragon, if you still want to live as a human, then you can come back anytime. Mom will always be here waiting for you.”
Xian’s feet started moving again. There is no answer.
Now the young dragon doesn’t hesitate.
Sara opened her mouth toward the door that Xian had left before she knew it.

My son’s outing this time somehow seemed to be quite long.
