A Divine Dragon Girl (Bahamut) Falls In Love At First Sight With A Failure Dragon Knight - Chapter 4 Instant Defeat
- A Divine Dragon Girl (Bahamut) Falls In Love At First Sight With A Failure Dragon Knight
- Chapter 4 Instant Defeat
I live in Almort, the dragon country.
As the name suggests, it is a country where dragons coexist with humans.
The city is built at the foot of the mountain, with the other side of the mountain being where the dragons live.
The dragon is said to be the strongest creature, and its power is overwhelming.
An ordinary demon would be no match for it, and if a person tried to confront it, they would be easily killed.
They are said to be the strongest and most powerful creatures, but they are also the most intelligent.
It is said that they understand human language and are, in fact, more intelligent than humans.
They are also a proud race that will not get caught up in greed.
The first King of Almort had an audience with such a dragon and succeeded in forming an alliance with it.
Since then, Almort has been known as the Dragon Kingdom…
People and dragons have walked hand in hand together and have prospered.
Because of this historical background, in Almort, dragons are seen as friends and not something to be feared.
Normally, the dragons live in the mountains, but…
They occasionally come down to the city to interact with each other.
It was unheard of for a dragon to transform into human form and enter the Dragon Knight Academy.
With Justina’s appearance, the academy was buzzing with excitement.
“So… once again, I’m Justina Eltoselk! You can just call me Eltoselk. Or my nickname if you like. Oh, but names are sacred to dragons, so I can’t let anyone call me by my name. I’m sorry about that.”
Back in the classroom…
Justina, who was assigned to our class, introduced herself again.
Everyone was stunned by the new student, who they never expected.
I know how you feel.
I’m still stunned, too.
The sensei said as he looked around the classroom.
“Let’s see… then, Eltoselk-san’s seat is…”
“I want to be next to Alto!”
“Eh? But the seat next to Estenia-kun is already…”
“Hey, can you switch seats with me?”
Not listening to the teacher, Justina went straight to the student sitting next to me.
“Eh, uh… yes, that’s fine.”
“Mmm, thanks! You’re a good guy.”
The boy sitting next to me was blushing as he was greeted by Justina’s sparkling smile.
That’s how attractive Justina’s smile is.
Justina took a seat next to me and smiled at me, a smile that was many times more beautiful than the one she had just given others.
“Ehehe, we’re neighbors.”
“Nice to meet you again, Alto!”
“Nice to meet you…?”
What was going on…
I couldn’t catch up with the hectic flow of reality, and I remained confused.
The first period of class was over, and recess was upon us.
Immediately, her classmates gathered around the seat… next to her.
“Hey, hey, is Eltoselk-san really a dragon?”
“Yes, I am. Didn’t I show you how I transformed at the school assembly? Other dragons can’t, but me and some select others can transform into humans. We haven’t talked about it much, so I guess you were not aware of the fact.”
“Maybe, just maybe, but… would the Bahamuts, the strongest dragon species, be equal to royalty in human terms?”
“Yeah, that’s a good answer. But it’s not like I’m a big deal or anything, so I’d appreciate it if you’d treat me normally.”
She was asked a barrage of questions, but she answered each one with a polite smile.
With her appearance and personality, she quickly became a popular girl in the class.
“Um, is it… true that you fell in love with Estenia at first sight?”
“Yes! Of course. I love Alto very much!”
That’s what I’ve been told…
I’m not going to lie, I’m more confused than happy.
I don’t remember doing anything that would make her like me.
That’s why it doesn’t feel quite right to me…
I can’t accept Justina’s affection, and I don’t know what to do about it.
“I-I see…Eltoselk-san said that Estenia…”
My classmates gave me a subtle look.
If I were a normal student, they’d be screaming…
Unfortunately, I’m a nuisance in the eyes of a nobleman’s son.
My classmates were confused as they didn’t seem to know how to react.
“Oi, oi, oi, you’re in love with Estenia? A dragon is? That’s impossible.”
He couldn’t miss a conversation like this…
Cedric stepped forward and got himself involved.
“Estenia is helpless, he’s a failure. To fall in love with someone like that, Eltoselk, is a bit in poor taste.”
Justina looked blatantly unhappy at Cedric’s sudden appearance.
“And you are?”
“I’m Cedric Astheim, the eldest son of the Astheim family, one of the five great noble houses of Almort.”
Justina tilted her head and nodded her head as if to say.
You definitely don’t know me well.
“You don’t have to worry about this guy, Eltoselk-san. Your love at first sight is probably just a misunderstanding. You’ll find out soon enough. You’ll find out who really is a great guy.”
“What do you mean?”
“Don’t you think I’m better than that piece of sh*t? Come on, don’t you think so?”
Cedric boldly put his hand on Justina’s shoulder.
“I’ll show you what a real man is like. Fortunately, you’re beautiful. You definitely deserve my favor.”
“You should be flattered. I’m the eldest of one of the five great noble families, and it’s not normal for me to be so serious. It’s the greatest happiness of all. Hey… Justina.”
Justina’s eyes flashed with anger as she heard him use her first name.
Dragons only allow their family members or those who are close to them to call them by their first names.
That is how sacred and important a name is to a dragon.
A Cedric that casually jumps over that line can no longer be called anything but an idiot.
Justina’s anger exploded…
But before she could, I grabbed Cedric’s hand that was on Justina’s shoulder and pulled him away.
“…Oi, what do you think you are doing?”
When Cedric stared at me, I shuddered pitifully.
I know I don’t want to lose to this guy, but…
The fear of being bullied has seeped into my body.
I can’t shake it off and I was at a loss for words.
“You’re not gonna fight me, are you? Ah? You’ve got to be kidding me… apparently, I didn’t train you well enough.”
“Now, shall I thoroughly destroy that shabby inn that is your parents’ home? Or shall I beat them to a pulp with my training? Hey, hey, which one do you want? I’ll give you a special choice.”
“No, you wouldn’t…!”
“Well, I’m not a demon. I’ll forgive you if you get down on your knees and apologize for just thinking about interfering with me. Also, please tell Justina. Tell her that it’s not you who deserves Justina, it’s me…”
I’ll be honest.
I’m ashamed, but I’m afraid of Cedric.
Even if it wasn’t for my parents’ house, I would have apologized.
There’s no way I’m going to sell out Justina here.
I don’t know if I’m going to reciprocate her feelings, that remains to be seen…
But, no man can sell out a girl who says she loves him!
“…Ah? What the fuck did you just say?”
“I said no. I won’t listen to Cedric.”
“Justina is not a girl Cedric should be messing with. Stop it.”
“All right, all right. If you want to die that badly, I’ll do whatever you want. For the sin of pissing me off, I’ll teach that body a lot…”
Completely ignoring Cedric…
I mean, she didn’t seem to see a piece of him, and suddenly, Justina hugged me.
Unable to cope with the suddenness of the situation, I involuntarily fell.
Justina leaned in close to me as if she was going to push me over.
Her eyes were shining brightly.
“I’m so touched that you said that much for me!”
“Eh, no… that was more like…”
“Yeah, I know. Alto doesn’t know what to do with me yet, right?”
“…Yeah, that’s right. Sorry.”
“No, don’t worry about it. I understand that I’m pushy. But you know.”
Laughing softly, Justina hugged me again.
“Even so, I’m very happy that you helped me. Thank you, Alto. You’ve saved me again.”
I wonder why.
I couldn’t have been so bold before…
Was it because I was dealing with Justina?
Strangely, I felt brave.
Courage alone is not the answer to everything.
“What a stupid farce you’ve turned out to be.”
Cedric was burning with rage.
“Anyways… Alto, you’re half dead. I’ll beat you up so bad you won’t even be able to eat food for patients. But then again, Justina, I’ll never forgive anyone who mocks me, even if they’re a woman. Fortunately, you’ve got a good face. I’m going to have a lot of fun with you, hehehe.”
I have to protect Justina at all costs.
I was about to get up with all my might…
But Justina stood in front of me.
“ ‘I’ll never forgive you.’ That’s my line.”
“I told you, didn’t I? I told you that a dragon’s name is sacred and not just anyone can say it…”
“Huh? What about it? You think I’m scared of you because you’re a dragon? Don’t underestimate me, you’re just a little girl.”
“And… you’ve been bullying Alto? I’ll never… forgive you for that.”
“What’s wrong with kicking trash? There is no other use for such trash other than to be taken care of by me. He should rather be grateful and guffaw—!”
Justina blew Cedric away with a decapitating blow.
Cedric’s body flew as if he were hit by a giant iron ball.
He knocked over a desk, smashed through a wall leading to a hallway, and then through a window.
His momentum didn’t stop, and he was blown tens of dozens of meters away…
He dropped straight down into the center of the field and finally stopped.
It’s hard to say because it’s so far away…
But I could see his arms and legs moving slightly.
At any rate, he seemed to be alive.
Justina wiped her fingertips with a handkerchief, as if she had touched something dirty.
I thought that even though she looked like a girl, she is still a dragon inside, so I thought she would have some power…
However, even taking into account that she’s a dragon, isn’t her power extraordinary?
A person might be able to fly that far if they were to take the full force of the dragon’s blow.
However, Justina didn’t look like she was putting much effort into it.
It only took a single half *ssed decapitation blow to make him look like that.
This is the power of the divine dragon Bahamut…
The power of Justina…
Once again, I shuddered in many ways, thinking that such an extraordinary girl had fallen in love with me.
