Chapter 4-36 : Cat’s Strange Dance (part 1)


Baron Hansen told his butler to call the magician he was talking about to his mansion, and about an hour later, the magician got to the mansion and waited in the mansion’s backyard, ready to duel Mylia anytime.

「Well then, shall we move to the backyard?」(Baron Hansen)



Baron Hansen and his two sons got up from the sofa and headed for the backyard. Mylia and Chloe were following from behind.

「Lady Mylia, I hope you will learn how harsh aristocratic society is after this duel and stop being an ignorant child.」(Baron Hansen)

While walking down the hallway, Baron Hansen glanced back at Mylia and talked to her as if he was confident that his magician would win the duel.

(Kuuuhh!! This fat pig really pisses me off!)

As soon as they got to the backyard, a man wearing a black turban and a black cloak who seemed to be the magician bowed deeply to Baron Hansen.

「Baron Hansen, it’s an honor to be summoned by you.」(magician)

「And it’s my pleasure to have you here. Thank you for coming.」(Baron Hansen)

Baron Hansen stood next to the magician and turned around, facing Mylia.

「Lady Mylia, this man is a descendant of a famous Dragon Slayer. He himself is also a talented Dragon Slayer. His magic skill is top-level in this kingdom. Not only did he kill dragons, but he once eliminated a group of Saber Black Tigers by himself, and above all, he is also a specialist in combat against humans.」(Baron Hansen)

When Baron Hansen introduced him, the magician in a black outfit silently bowed to Mylia.

He looked like a mysterious assassin in Mylia’s eyes.

「Lady Mylia, you might be strong, but unfortunately, I doubt you would win against him. I suggest you give up and accept my offer before the duel starts. I honestly don’t want to see a young girl like you get hurt.」(Baron Hansen)

「No way!」(Mylia)

「Hmph. I see…」(Baron Hansen)

「M, Mylia, he looks strong. Baron Hansen’s right. I don’t want you to get hurt. I think you should stop…」(Chloe)

「I’ll be fine, Onee-chan. I might lose if he was as strong as Master, but I doubt there was someone who was on the same level as Master in this kingdom.」(Mylia)

「Are you sure?」(Chloe)

「Of course!」(Mylia)

Seeing her little sister’s confident face, Chloe couldn’t help but nod.

「…Alright. I trust you. Good luck, Mylia!」(Chloe)


After nodding cheerfully at her older sister, Mylia moved away about twenty meters from the magician and faced him, ready to kick his butt, while Chloe, Baron Hansen, and the two sons moved to the edge of the backyard, watching the two from far away.

「Nice to meet you. My name is Drakia. I’m a descendant of Cornelia who was a famous Dragon Slayer two hundred years ago.」(Drakia)

The man in a black turban and cloak bowed to Mylia and introduced himself.

He wasn’t that tall, but because Mylia was short, there was quite a difference in height between the two.

His entire body was covered by a black robe except his face. He had a dark-skinned face and narrow eyes. Judging from the way he looked, he seemed to be in his early thirties.

(Cornelia…? I think I’ve heard that name somewhere before… He looked more like an assassin than a magician with that dagger on his waist…)

Mylia just noticed that he had something that looked like a dagger on his waist.

After the man introduced himself, Mylia nodded at him once and introduced herself.

「I’m Mylia de la Atwood, a baron and a Dragon Slayer…」(Mylia)

Soon after Mylia introduced herself, the man smiled at her.

「I heard rumors about you, but I’m surprised that the youngest Dragon Slayer is much younger than I expected. I heard that you are a student at the Royal Girls’ Academy. Is that true?」(Drakia)

「Yeah. I’m a first-year student.」(Mylia)

「I see… It is said that age doesn’t matter in the world of magic, but I still think that being able to defeat dragons at such a young age is an incredible thing. I remember I was still practicing magic when I was your age.」(Drakia)

「Uhh… I’ll take that as a compliment…」(Mylia)

「By the way, was the explosion that happened about an hour ago your doing?」(Drakia)

「Yeah, did I scare you?」(Mylia)

「Ahaha! You did, actually. I live at the edge of the town, but the explosion you made was so loud that I flinched for a split second.」(Drakia)

「Well… I’m sorry for that.」(Mylia)

Mylia scratched her head, feeling a little embarrassed.

「I was hanging my laundry in my backyard when the explosion happened. I’ve never seen such a big explosive spell before. Ah, by the way, my laundry was all black robes and clothes as you can guess. Hahaha!」(Drakia)

「Y, you like black so much, huh…?」(Mylia)

「I do!」(Drakia)

Seeing the man’s laughing face, Mylia started to think that he might not be a bad person.

(Unlike that fat pig, this man seems to be a good person. I think he just couldn’t refuse Baron Hansen’s order.)

「Actually, I planned to refuse when Baron Hansen’s butler came to my house and told me to duel someone, but I ended up accepting it after he said that I would be fighting the rumored young Dragon Slayer. Lady Mylia, would you like to use that explosive spell on me? I want to feel it with my entire body.」(Drakia)


(He wants to feel it with his entire body, he said…? He might look like a good person, but could it be, he is an… M-person…? Ugh… I don’t know how should react to this…)

Without realizing it, Mylia looked at the man with disgusted eyes.

Noticing Mylia was looking at him that way, the man laughed.

「Ahahaha! Lady Mylia, I think you’re misunderstanding me. It’s not that I have a weird hobby or anything like that. I just think that I can be stronger if I purposely receive my opponent’s spells in duels.」(Drakia)

「Are you sure? You might not survive my Explosion Magic, you know?」(Mylia)

「Thank you for your consideration, but you don’t have to worry about me.」(Drakia)

The man answered Mylia with a confident smile on his face.

「Alright then. Don’t blame me if you get badly injured!」(Mylia)

「I won’t.」(Drakia)

「Well then, here I go!」(Mylia)

In this way, the duel between a veteran Dragon Slayer and the rumored Dragon Slayer had begun.
