“Aww, I came to save you all with good intentions, but you guys just took it for granted. That makes me feel so disappointed…”

Lilith spread her arms, shaking her head as she sighed.

“We should be the ones who are disappointed…”

Durance looked at Lilith with an unfriendly gaze. He knew the name of this blonde girl in front of her and remembered the arrogant attitude speech back in the academy’s opening ceremony. Not to mention, after that flashy ‘funeral’ the vice dean held for her, everyone in the academy knew who this petite and lovely blonde girl was… After all, seeing such a huge a̲s̲s̲ monochrome photo of hers on the display, it was rather hard to not know who she was.

And because of the two events, Durance’s first and lasting impressions of Lilith were ‘reckless’ and ‘ignorant’.

Her arrogant speech to everyone during the academy’s opening ceremony and her abduction by Golden Demon Htilil at the Dragon God Lake had both confirmed Durance’s suspicion.

And the current situation had further convinced Durance that Lilith was… A completely useless good-for-nothing! Not only that, she was one that would lead the party to their doom

“Ah, forget it. I can’t be bothered to continue this.”

Lilith turned her head and looked far ahead of the corridor on the other side. With her powerful senses, she spotted someone approaching them before everyone else.

Footsteps were heard before an abnormally slender figure showed up in front of them.

He was at least three meters tall, face strangely painted in black and white, body shrouded by black robes. Who else could it be, if not Shiloah?

He just looked rather pale.

“Lady Cornelia… Your humble servant has screwed up, please punish me as you see fit…!”

“So you ARE aware of your slip up?” Cornelia said angrily. At this moment, she wanted to toss Shiloah and Gaz, these two useless servants of hers, into a furnace so badly and rebuild them!

“My sincerest apologies!” Shiloah lowered his head and said with great remorse.

He only had to look at anyone on the scene to find out what had transpired. In the end, the current mess was caused by his own incompetency to stop this bunch of humans.

Shiloah glanced at Lilith scornfully, as an indescribably bitterness welled up in his heart.

This dragon monster… escaped again… It is no surprise why Lady Cornelia is this upset.

“Yoohoo~ Shiloah! It’s been awhile! I haven’t properly thanked you for taking care of my Lesiah last time~” Lilith greeted him with a smile, as if she was reunited with a long lost friend. However, it was a smile that did not reach her eyes.

“Ohoho, no thanks necessary.”

Shiloah wiped the cold sweat beading on his forehead. For some reason, the way Lilith was waving the black crowbar in her hand sent chills down his spine.

“Who are you calling yours…?” Lesiah shot an embarrassed glare at Lilith and huffed.

“HMMMM~” Lilith brushed her off then looked past Shiloah, far into the corridor behind him. “Looks like everyone is here.”

As soon as her voice fell, Diana came flying out from the depths of the corridor, sitting on a bare magic staff that looked no different than a dead tree branch. Her gaze scanned everyone before settling down on Lilith and Lesiah, who was next to her. There was some confusion in her eyes at first before she looked like she understood what was going on.

“Haha, so you’re all here. How lively.”

Diana stopped beside Lilith, then jumped off her magic staff. She patted the blonde’s shoulder and gave her a thumb up. “For the first time in my life, I’ve found someone worthy of my admiration. Good job, Vice President Lilith.”

After saying that, she leaned closer to Lilith and whispered into her ear, “How did you do that, Vice President Lilith? Share with me your experience, I promise I will reduce your future workload by thirty percent.”

Lilith rolled her eyes at Diana, before her lips curled into a cunning smile. “Call me ‘Martial Aunt’,” she whispered back.

“This is my bread and butter, I can’t simply give it away. But if my martial niece is willing to give up her president title for me… then I think there’s no harm for me to teach you a thing or two.”

“…….”

Diana puffed her cheeks up from having her curiosity doused by a bucket of cold water. Her position of being a president in exchange for a trick or two? If she were to give that to Lilith, how could she continue abusing… ahem, serving the public?

And how could she face the former president, who gave up her position after being threatened by her?

“Alright, since everyone’s here. Then…”

Lilith took two steps forward and fixed her gaze on Cornelia, with determination to fight her until the end. “Go first, I’ll bring up the rear…”

“You think… you can get away?”

Even without any wind around, Cornelia’s white hair was floating about. The suppressed power that did not belong to the mortal realm began stirring in her body.

Durance and a few others immediately found it hard to breathe, almost as if they plunged into the deep sea. The immense pressure instilled fear to their very core.

Horror filled their eyes, as they wondered if this was the real strength of that monster named Cornelia.

Just her presence alone was enough to immobilize everyone, how could they continue the fight like this?

Lilith swiftly grabbed Lesiah’s hand. The dragon blood in her body and the remaining dragon blood in Lesiah’s body began resonating with each other, resisting the pressure from Cornelia.

“Oh, my dear Cornelia. We’ve fought so many times before and as usual, you like to go all out. How uninteresting.”

“What do you propose then?” Cornelia frowned.

“Just both of us. Swear we won’t go beyond that realm of power. That way, it’s all up to our ability whether we can get away from you. How about that?”

“……”

Cornelia fell into a deep thought.

Lilith did not rush her either, because she knew….

“Fine, I agree.”

It took Cornelia only a few seconds of thinking before she made her decision.

Lilith did not look surprised by her response. Between dying together and seizing that glimmer of hope, any sane person would know which was a better choice.

“A wise choice.”
“I can agree to your terms, but how can I be sure that you won’t go back on your word?”
“Easy.” Lilith gave her a smile. “You are not the only one who has things to protect.”
Cornelia snorted coldly. “Looks like I have done a good deed.”
“Perhaps.” Lilith shrugged, then said to Lesiah, “Bring the others and leave now. Same old tactics, buy time until we get teleported out of here.”
“Alright… Got it…”

Knowing that there was no point for them to stay here any longer and that Cornelia would have a hard time dealing with Lilith without using her super power, Lesiah chose to heed Lilith’s command without any hesitation.

“Take care.”
“Don’t worry. I can’t say much for anything else, but I feel invincible when it comes to my bloodline.”
Lesiah nodded, then turned to the rest. “You guys, follow me! Leave this to Lilith!”
“Huh? We’re leaving just like that?” Diana asked in confusion. “We’re going to leave Lilith to bring up the rear…? If she gets taken away, won’t all of our effort up to this point be for naught?”
“Rest assured, that won’t happen.”

There was absolute faith shining in Lesiah’s crystal-like eyes. Her aura had changed entirely, into that of Crown Princess Lesiah who ruled a nation of her own.

“I ask of you all to have the same faith as I have in Lilith. This is no longer our battlefield,” she said in a commanding tone that left no room for doubt.

As soon as she finished speaking, a ray of golden sword light burst from behind Cornelia, as if to deliberately challenge her statement.
