「IIIIAAAAANNN!!!!」

Lahti’s heart-rending cry echoed out as he lost his best friend.

「Kgh……! Ian……!」
「What are we even to the Highlanders!」

Leone bit her lip, and Liselotte cast her eyes down.

「……Unforgivable! Even death can’t fix his crooked personality!」

Rafinha stood up, eyes blazing with anger.

「Rani! Is Pullum okay already?」
「Yeah. I don’t know why, but I’m in tiptop shape! I managed to heal her faster than I thought.」

This might also be the effect of Dragon Roar. It wasn’t surprising at all that Rafinha, after eating as much dragon meat as Inglis, would also be affected by it. Considering that she didn’t seem to have heard Vufailbane’s voice earlier, she might have just awakened her power now, or perhaps the Dragon Roar in her wasn’t the kind that was suitable to hear Vufailbane. Nobody could tell for sure.

「Pullum is fine now, although she fell asleep from exhaustion. Come on, Lahti, take her inside and lay her in a bed. She’ll catch a cold out here.」
「Got it! Thank you so much, I really appreciate it!」
「Your Highness, let me help!」
「Sure, Luwin. Please do!」

Lahti and Luwin worked together carrying Pullum into the house.

「Now, Glis, let’s go and avenge Ian! Where’s Abel?!」
「……I don’t know yet. But, if he is to show up… I think he’ll be there.」

Saying that, Inglis pointed in the direction they came from, the deep depression of the former town of Lekrea, where Vufailbane was enshrined.

Tiffany the Hyrule Menace claimed that she came to this country as Abel’s successor, and that taking the land of Lekrea by the means of 『Levitation Magic Formation』 was Abel’s plan that she inherited.

The Hyrule Menace herself didn’t seem to know that Dragon God Vufailbane was sealed underground. She probably wasn’t told much about it, considering she and Abel didn’t seem to be on good terms with each other.

While Abel, the planner of that operation in the first place, must have known that Vufailbane was slumbering under Lekrea. It was too much of a coincidence that a Dragon God happened to be buried in the land that he had set his sights on for the next Highland territory.

It was much more natural to assume that he had known about it beforehand. If that was the case, then it was obvious that his target would be the Dragon God Vufailbane.

Which means, he would only show up in front of the Dragon God. A simple guess.

「I’m sure that he is trying to do something to the Dragon God, to Vufailbane.」
「Eeh?! That’s bad news! We were just about to have him understand us! If something happened to him, we won’t get the delicious meat anymore!」
「Well, we’ve already stockpiled quite a lot of it. But, more importantly…」

As for Inglis personally, the venerable problem was that Vufailbane had lost his will to fight her. She would be grateful if Vufailbane would join forces with Abel and attack her together, thinking that they might get the opportunity to win

Even though he wasn’t as strong as Vufailbane, Abel was quite capable himself. The possibility existed. Although, Inglis had no idea what kind of state Abel was in right now, since he died once before.

「More importantly what?」
「Ah, it’s nothing……Hmm…」

It would be amusing to let Abel swim around a bit more, she would be lying to say that it didn’t strike her interest.

「Hello, Glis? You’re not thinking ‘Oh, if we leave him alone for a while, he might become an even stronger enemy♪’, are you……?」
「EH……?! No, no, no, I’m not. It’s just, you know, I’m thinking that it would be really helpful if we saw through all of his plans and made a detailed report of it to Brother Rafa and Special Envoy Theodore…like, for future references? So, why don’t we just let him swim a little bit more and see what he is up to?」
「No can do! Glis, you blew up the Royal Grand Theater exactly because of that attitude! This isn’t about the future, this is about the now. I won’t let any more tragedy happen in Lekrea, for Ian’s sake too! We have to foil Abel’s plan! Come on, chop chop!」

Rafinha grabbed Inglis’ hand and pulled it. Inglis couldn’t refuse it, not when she phrased it like that. Not only because of her position as a Squire, but also because it was a request from the Rafinha that she holds dear.

「Okay. I get it…」

Inglis and Rafinha boarded the Star Princess unit again. Leone, of course, followed suit, while Liselotte didn’t board it. She instead soared into the air with the wings of her Gift. When the Star Princess unit gained high enough altitude, Liselotte gripped the edge of its hull with her hand, prepared to accompany the vessel.

「Let’s make haste!」

Right after Rafinha said that and set the Flygear on full throttle, a loud rumbling occured, and the surrounding forests began to shake.

The epicenter of the occurrence was near the location where Vufailbane was enshrined, exactly where Inglis had pointed out. Cracks appeared on the ground, and they were spreading rapidly.
