How to Live as a Half-Dragon chapter 33
033. What the trials gave and went (1).
It was right after Xian witnessed Hughes’ butterfly.
The butterfly exploded, releasing harsh cold air.
The entire dragonian’s tail was swept away by the cold.
Thanks to this, Xian was able to move to the back of the target without any burden.
Xian’s dagger pierced the heart of the dragonian who was about to turn around.
I didn’t forget to twist the dagger just in case.
As Xian drew his sword, the staggering Dragonian soon lost his strength and collapsed.
Xian’s first words, which drove the persistent guy to death, contained neither joy nor sadness.
“That butterfly… It was for an attack… .”
The range wasn’t that wide, but the power was amazing.
No matter how long the battle has weakened it, it is strong enough to kill its tail in one fell swoop.
“Wait, Hughes says there are butterflies?!”
I looked around, but Hughes was nowhere to be found.
Only the collapsed Leah can be seen.
“ah! That’s right Leah!”
Sian hurriedly approached Leah.
It’s been quite a while since Leah’s poison aura was rising.
just as expected.
Leah’s condition was serious. It seemed unconscious that there was no answer when I called.
“What can I do?”
It’s much more serious than you think.
It was clear that he was overworked while he was already in a bad state.
If left as it is, I wondered if I would be able to hold out until Drake came.
Sian sat Leah up and put her hand on her back.
“Was it here?”
At that time, I had watched Drake help from afar.
It was when Xian tried to inject mana.
“Sian, wait a minute.”
Sian turned his head at the familiar voice.
Standing where the voice came from was Hughes, who was breathing heavily.
Xian exclaimed happily, but Hughes only spoke with a rather serious face.
“What are you trying to do?”
“Oh, yes, Leah… .”
“Just in case, if you’re trying to inject mana clumsily, it’s better to stop, that’s quite difficult. On the contrary, if you make a mistake, even the child could be in danger.”
Come to think of it, it seemed like Drake had said that before.
He said that if someone else’s mana doesn’t settle inside, he could be crippled.
“So what? Is there a way?”
“Sorry, but not right now.”
Even though he knew what would happen to Leah if left as it was, Hughes was calm.
“To be honest, it’s unfortunate, but it’s actually a good thing for Xian.”
“What is that… .”
“It means that Cyan doesn’t have to arouse Drake’s suspicions. You took off the necklace.”
I felt sorry for Xian.
Before he solved it, he forgot about it as he knew about it and fought over the line of fire.
“If that child lives, there is a high chance that Xi’an’s secret will be found out. I hear you revealed to Drake that you are from the Alteon family, right?”
In a word, the destination and the place to stay were already disclosed.
What if Drake was suspicious of the current situation?
No, what if doubt turns into certainty?
That’s when it really ends.
As Hughes said, for the sake of future work, it might be better for Leah to stand by.
“that… Then you should call your grandfather… .”
“If it’s Drake, I won’t be able to come right away because I’ve been playing around a bit.”
“Why did you do that!”
“… … .”
Hughes was speechless.
“Why did you do that… why so… .”
I didn’t understand.
what did you even do?
It doesn’t matter if you leave here.
But at least I wanted to open a way for Leah to live.
It was then that Hughes’ mouth opened.
Hughes’ voice was still calm.
It was to the point where he doubted whether the caring Hughes he knew was right.
“Because it’s for Xian, I’m Xian’s guardian, not the child lying here.”
Hughes said firmly.
“I really have to go to Xian this time. It’s different from the stubbornness you showed earlier. It could endanger your life… .”
“ah… Come to think of it.”
Sian rummaged through his pockets and pulled out a pocket.
It was a pocket containing money and valuables received as compensation from the Slayers the other day.
“this… Will this not work too?”
I don’t know why I forgot this.
Seeing that he told me to eat it in case of aftereffects later, it is clear that it is similar to a cure.
“Is it working?”
It was clear from Hughes’ reaction.
It was when Xian opened the lid of the potion and was about to pour it into Leah’s mouth.
Hughes grabbed Xian’s arm.
“Sian, wait a minute.”
“Hughes, I don’t want to be a coward.”
“… … .”
“I know that dragons can’t live with humans, but if you turn away from dying simply because you’re human… What’s the difference between me and the Slayer?”
Hughes closed his mouth for some reason at Xian’s words.
For Hughes, it would have been a simple argument, but for some reason it was.
“Then make me one promise.”
“You must convince him.”
When Hughes let go of his arm, Sian poured the potion into Leah’s mouth without hesitation.
I could see the green spots all over my body quickly subsided.
“done… Hughes!… .”
Xian, who turned his head to find Hughes with a happy heart, swallowed his words behind him.
It was because of her that she was distant.
“Soon you will come back to consciousness. Say hello briefly and come, I’ll wait at the end.”
“… … .”
I tried to call Hughes, who was moving away, but Sian shut his mouth.
It was because, as Hughes said, it seemed that Leah’s consciousness was about to return just in time.
Sian moved Leah to a nearby tree and sat her down.
Leia woke up shortly after.
Those eyes opened slowly.
What Leah did after seeing Xian’s face was to raise the corner of her mouth.
“Looks like you won?”
It was the first time I’d seen Leah smile, so to be honest, I was surprised.
Are you pretty?
Why are you so pretty?
“You see, so how are you feeling?”
“Refreshing, poison… disappeared? Why?”
It was natural to be surprised that the poison that had weighed down his body for days had disappeared.
Leah was a little taken aback when she checked the empty potion bottle that Xian was holding.
“Did you eat it?”
“uh… It is, but can’t we?”
Leah shook her head.
“It’s not like that, but I feel like I’m in debt.”
It was when Xian tilted his head at Leah’s words.
Hughes’ voice came.
“Sian, I don’t have enough time.”
“that… My companion, so to speak, Leah.”
As Xian was unable to speak, Leah slowly closed her eyes and spoke.
“If that’s the case, don’t worry, I won’t tell anyone.”
“uh… really? Do you know what I’m talking about?”
“Isn’t that the necklace?”
right. It was strange that he would keep the secret more obediently because he was right.
“You don’t have to worry, and that was a secret for me too.”
“Biyeongnanmu, grandpa doesn’t know.”
In fact, there was a secret behind the fact that it took half a year to learn non-spirituality. In fact, more than half of the time was devoted to learning Biyeongnanmu, a skill that is one level higher.
Drake doesn’t know that.
Leah smiled and said to Xian, who looked at him blankly.
“So you exchanged secrets with each other?”
* * *
After the conversation, Leah, who watched Xian disappear with her companion until the end, closed her eyes again.
In fact, even though the poison energy had disappeared, it was because it was right after the battle ended, so it was the reason why it seemed like the body would be cut off.
“When did you learn to sleep?”
Leah opened her eyes again.
It was because the owner of the voice was none other than Drake.
The empty space was refracted, and surprisingly, Drake appeared.
It is a technique that burns all the mana in the body to instantly increase physical abilities, and eventually erases even the shape and shadow.
This was also the technique Leia used right before the duel with the Dragonian.
However, I couldn’t erase the shape because my proficiency was low.
“Since when have you been watching?”
“It was from the time you wrote Jamyeong.”
In fact, it meant watching all the battles.
It was also the story of Xian’s battle with the Dragonian.
“No matter how much speed was needed for non-young dance, it was reckless to use jam-young that had not reached full maturity.”
As much as submergence increases physical ability, it leaves a big aftereffect if the user’s bowl is poor.
Just like Leah now.
“I couldn’t help it, because I didn’t know that my grandfather was watching.”

Maybe that’s what everyone did.
Xian, who fought alongside Leah.
Even Hughes, who was boasting, did not know.
“But, are you going to kill me?”
When Leado Xian untied the necklace, it was a long way to go, but the conversation with the dragonian was decisive.
At that time, the conversation was cut off as Xian rushed forward, but what he was trying to say could be roughly inferred.
However, to be honest, it was the first time that Leah knew that a dragonian could learn dragonskill.
Drake, who was looking at Leia’s face, said in a spirited manner.
“It seems that you put it on for a while and then you were bewitched.”
“… … .”
Drake erased the kindness from his face and looked at the distant Dragonian. Drake said seriously.
“Kill me… Well, I don’t know about that.”
Both dragons and dragonians must be killed.
That is humanity’s task before the fate of the Slayer.
However, Leah was greatly surprised, as if it was honestly surprising that such words came out of Drake’s mouth, who was even in charge of the mission.
Naturally, it was because he knew how to reprimand or yell at himself for spitting out such a question.
“… … .”
said Drake, recalling an old memory.
“I’ve seen it a few times.”
“… … .”
“A dragon more human than me.”
It was just a coincidence.
And that’s why Drake was also confused.
I had never imagined that a dragon known as the personification of greed and destruction could be such a being.
Since then, Drake has had occasional thoughts like that.
Grounds for hatred towards dragons.
It was said that there was a time when I doubted and distrusted.
“So I’m going to watch it a little longer, and I’m interested in it.”
“Are you going to follow me?”
“No, isn’t there something to do before that?”
“Come to think of it… Are people all right?”
Even if the threat of the Dragonians is gone, monsters are active around this valley.
It is of course dangerous to leave only ordinary people alone.
“No need to worry about that. You put up a witch’s barrier.”
Perhaps because of that, the guardian, the dragonian, thought he would be trapped there, but the problem is that he didn’t know that no matter how advanced the barrier was, if it had overwhelming speed, it could be broken through.
“If it’s a witch’s barrier… Is that woman a witch and not a dragonian?”
“No, it must be a dragonian, with witch’s blood flowing through it. Witches are already extinct.”
Drake said to Leia.
“Can it happen?”
