How to Live as a Half-Dragon chapter 48
048. North Woods (1).
Duke Lugrant’s eyebrows twitched slightly at his atrocities.
“It’s Alteon’s job. Let’s go.”
“What are you talking about, Alteon kid. Have you ever forgotten that you would like to be at home in this house?”
“There is a degree to everything.”
“Are you teaching me etiquette now?”
Even when Lugrant showed off his displeasure to the fullest, Drake was unstoppable.
It was to the point where I wondered if it was okay to just leave like this after breaking into the office of a foreign country, especially the duke.
“Give this guy a chance.”
“That story is already over.”
“No, it’s not over. Because I have a complaint.”
As he said that, he showed his teeth and smiled, to the point where I wondered if he was a complete madman.
I wondered if he really didn’t think about the aftermath.
“Even Pereira has no right to get involved in the affairs of Alteon. It is over-the-top.”
“That’s something we should discuss with our family, rather than that, let’s talk about this guy. give it a decent chance Wouldn’t that be a lot of damage to Alteon?”
If you have talent, you can accept it and use it to raise the status of Alteon, otherwise you can discard it as planned.
Rugrant opened his mouth.
It was a reason I couldn’t understand even more because I was a person who knew that the current situation was obvious disrespect.
The Drake he knew was not a person who showed such interest in others.
“Why are you doing this?”
“Because that’s why I came here.”
* * *
Lugrant was embarrassed inside.
It was a reaction that I did not expect that such an answer would come.
“Looking at it now, it must have been spherical.”
“Yeah, so look at my face and ask for a chance. Even if he left the house saying no, isn’t he his daughter’s child? At one time, to the point of being pointed out as the successor of this Alteon.”
Lugrant, who had been thinking deeply, opened his mouth.
He still looked flustered by the sudden change, but his voice was as dignified as the leader of Alteon.
“Are you going to give me a chance?”
Drake had a suspicious look at his attitude, but…
“No doubt, I have a question for you, so please answer me properly.”
“Okay, which one?”
Rugland pointed at Xian and asked.
“What did this child give you?”
He smiled at Drake’s answer without the slightest hesitation.
I guess I didn’t think it was that way.
Because Xian thought so too.
“Please leave now. I have a story to finish.”
“hmm… what do you do?”
Drake opened the door and closed it.
When the room became quiet, Rugland spoke.
I thought maybe he was pouring out his anger because of Drake, but luckily it wasn’t.
“There is a forest behind the mansion. Go to the end and get the token. Proof that you are suitable for this Alteon.”
“Is that all?”
After telling me exactly what to do, Rugland said.
“Get out. The end is one month.”
* * *
It was when Xian left the room after receiving an assignment from Lugrant.
There was a visible presence.
“What are you so surprised about?”
I was surprised when I burst into the room earlier, but when I saw Drake again, I instinctively recoiled.
Anyway, with Drake’s help, things worked out.
I should say thanks here…
Xian took a step forward and first expressed his gratitude.
“that… Thank you for your help.”
“Oh, what did the kid say?”
“Are you a kid?”
“That kid from Lugrant.”
Certainly, Drake’s age is much older than that of Lugrant.
Even at first glance with the naked eye, there was a difference of at least 15 years.
But society never goes back to age alone.
It wasn’t common to treat a duke of a foreign country as a child.
It was something he could never do even if he became the king of a country, but it was surprising that there was no uproar.
“But is it okay if I just call you like that?”
“Even if I resign from the front line, I am a duke and he is also a duke, what else can I not do?”
I don’t think this is the only reason for normal people, but…
maybe you don’t know If it’s Drake, he might be really crazy and say that.
“I’m afraid that someone will hear me…” .”
I was even worried that someone might hear and suddenly get a knife.
When Drake saw Xian looking around with a really nervous face, he smiled bitterly and then erased his mischief and said.
“I have a relationship with his father. Well, we’re not very close friends.”
Even with that said, it was clear that they were quite friendly.
And only then did Xian know why there was no accident despite the uproar.
It wasn’t the relationship between a duke and another duke’s aristocrat, but because the special relationship between a father’s close friend and his son took precedence, so there was no division.
“If that’s the case, right away… .”
“Rather than that, tell me what the Lugrant guy said.”
He is a very selfish person.
I can’t even talk about it on my own…
“It’s nothing special, please take the certificate.”
“I heard you go to the end of the northern forest?”
Drake stopped abruptly and turned back the way he had come.
At the end of his gaze was the office of the head of household.
“Well, for now, it’s nothing. So are you going? In the northern woods?”
“So is there any special?”
It was when Xian left the main house with Drake.
There were people waiting outside.
It was the boy and girl with the mustache who escorted Xian to his office.
The girl Cecily welcomed Xian.
Like a puppy meeting its owner, it has cute ears that prick up once.
“Are you awake?”
“I couldn’t protect you… Hughes asked for it… .”
“It’s okay, because the opponent wasn’t good. Yes?”
When I asked the man with the mustache, he averted his eyes and said,
“It’s no use complaining about me. I was just following orders.”
“By the way, I guess you saw my father too?”
It was probably certain that he spoke and acted as he did in the market.
‘Originally, I would have cut it, but I said that it wouldn’t work.’
At the time, I wondered what that meant, but now that I think about it, just like my maternal grandfather, Lugrant, the man knew of his father’s existence.
And Xian was curious about that.
What kind of talent did his father, who is not a dragonian but a dragon himself, go undetected even among the slayers?
The answer from the man with the mustache was heard when Xi’an’s thoughts reached that point.
“I have lived my whole life at Alteon. Even if you don’t want to know, there are things you know.”
something like that
Again, it was very fortunate.
If it had been someone else who came under the command of Lugrant, he might have had his neck cut in one or two places.
Xian listened to the man’s answer and this time greeted the boy.
“… … .”
Leah nodded without speaking.
After Xian finished his greetings, he asked the man.
“By the way, where is the northern forest?”
* * *
30 minutes after Xi’an leaves.
Lugrant was looking outside from the window.
Looking at the setting sun, Lugrand’s expression was very deep.
“I guess I was in a hurry too… .”
I tried to chase him away, but I made a mistake.
Fortunately, the guy didn’t seem to notice, but the words to think it’s fortunate that the limbs are back are a bit dangerous.
If he thought otherwise, it was because he himself denied his own words that he had completely cut off the bond between parents and children.
If you really don’t care about anything, there’s no reason to let them live.
Since he was just an impersonator of Alteon, there was no reason to show mercy.
‘Did I say it was fun anyway?’
I was really quite surprised when Drake broke in out of nowhere.
All the more because he wasn’t interested in other people’s affairs.
So when those words came out of Drake’s mouth, it was hard to believe.
‘The Drake of the world… .’
Because he was a friend of his father and a Slayer who lived in the same generation, Rugland had seen him many times.
He was never the kind of person who came and went when someone said he would come.
Ferreira deserved it and had enough power.
But he came here simply with the interest he felt for that child.
In a way, Drake’s words were decisive in temporarily covering up the thoughts he was trying to expel.
‘Well, whether it’s bluffing or the truth, the results won’t change.’
It was around the time when Lugrant was in the middle of thinking about his grandson.
There was a knock on the door.
“Duke, this is Winster.”
At the words of Rugland, a handsome middle-aged gentleman entered.
Winster was like his right hand.
“He guided me to bury the northern forest.”
“Heh, useless thing. Come, sit down, and have a cup of tea.”
said Rugland, who went to the table and poured Winster the tea he had just warmed up.
“How did you quietly follow me?”
“to? Oh, there was a bit of a commotion if you were a boy.”
“That was it?”
Lugrant slightly missed the cup he was trying to lift.
That said, it was agitated.
Even so, Winster is a high-level slayer.
Even in this Alteon, if you look at the power alone, it was a strong one within the five fingers.
It was unbelievable that he would cause a commotion like that.
“It wasn’t like that, because I rarely use mana just to fit in. Because he is the son of that Lady Sarah.”

Mana is the source of power.
It was said that he responded with his own limitations.
Then I understand to some extent…
I wanted to hear the story a little deeper.
“How you see it, that child.”
“Do you mean what I see?”
“Sir Pereira was quite uplifted, and he had a pretty confident face saying he would help Alteon.”
He waited for an answer while drinking a cup of tea pretending it was nothing, but there was hardly any reply from Winster.
It was unexpected.
Reluctantly, he asked again.
“Was it lousy?”
At Lugrant’s words, he pondered over an answer until just before the urgency ran out, and finally spoke up.
“It was great. It reminds me of Princess Gongnyeo when I was young. No, in terms of talent alone, it would be more than that.”
Rugrant was genuinely surprised.
Winster has been in charge of all the martial arts instruction of Alteon’s children.
It was because, if you think about whether he had ever praised someone like this before, there hadn’t been any except once or twice.
From Drake to Winster.
Considering Winster’s usual wild personality, the talent of the grandson seemed not to be bluffing.
“Boy, do you care about your grandson?”
“No, not at all. If so, would I have given you the Ordeal of the Northern Forest?”
Well, it was because he thought it was too harsh when he heard that.
If there was even a hint of reaping, this is not a condition I would have put forward.
Lugrand sipped the tea.
“We have no grandchildren in Alteon. Be careful with your words.”
“Sorry, I made a mistake.”
Yes, things about Sarah, the eldest daughter, were all in the past now.
Alteon is not weak enough to cling to past ties.
Now, the family’s vassals have forgotten him and are facing a new choice, but there is nothing good about the name sticking out.
“It’s enough to know.”
However, unlike his calm expression, for some reason, the tea he always drank today did not suit his taste.
