Sisna arrived at the palace on the highest point of the city unhindered. The route was especially clear since the city’s residents kept their distance, fearful of becoming the dragon’s next meal.
Standing at the entrance of the palace, Sisna’s black eyebrows tightened up. As a believer of Lady Silver Moon, she felt awkward when in another God’s church, but thinking of her responsibility as well as Her Majesty’s mandate, she took a deep breath and stepped into the church with a determined expression.
The church’s lavish decorations made Sisna slightly unhappy. As an elf, she preferred the comfort of nature over the lavish use of gold and silver decorations.
The circular palace was silent, eerily so. Sisna calmed her mind before stepping in, and not long after she arrived at the chapel prayer hall.
She heard the jingle of falling coins soon after.
The benches used by the congregation had already been removed. The ground was covered with gold, emeralds, onyx, and other precious stones as well as precious metals. Even as an elf, she felt her heart skip a beat.
On this mountain of treasure lay a dragon whose scales glittered no less than the treasures around it. Its frame was a far cry from its prior humongous stature, but Sisna dared not act disrespectfully in front of it. With the Gods having faded away eons ago, Sisna knew that this eccentric primordial dragon was an absolute existence on the continent.
Now, however, it sported a beautiful crown over its golden head and possessed the mien of a king.
The dragon, lying on top of the gold, was currently using licking a longsword clean. From the weapon’s fluctuations, Sisna could tell that it was a priceless divine weapon.
‘It seems that dragons, even demigod primordial ones, truly can’t help but be greedy. The city is in utter chaos, and yet the lord does not seem to care about his territory at all.’
Sisna secretly sighed, unsurprised by the sight before her. If a dragon wasn’t greedy and covetous of treasures, then it wasn’t really a dragon.
A human archmage was currently using magic somewhere in the basement to push the basement’s wealth in front of the dragon, making a sea of gold and silver.
“Great Lord Caracolon……”
Sisna straightened herself. She slowly stepped a short distance in front of Louie and performed an ancient elven salute.
Louie stopped mid-lick and hid the sword beneath himself. At this, Sisna could not help but smile at his predictability.
After sequestering away the holy sword, Louie regarded the elf.
When he first arrived in San Soliel, Louie could sense her power the instant he saw her. At the time she could cut off his head with absolute ease. But it was only after he transformed into a demigod that he could properly gauge her abilities. She was a legendary ranked ranger!
Gazing at Sisna, Louie discovered that his thoughts became restless. She had long hair like emerald-glaze, a pair of beautiful jade-like eyes that were dotted on her pretty face, willow eyebrows that seemed like shrouding mist, vermillion lips, and unbelievable glistening skin. Even Louie’s dragon eyes could not make out any pores or flaws on her epidermis.
She carried herself tall and had a curvaceous yet delicate figure; her pointed eyes trembled slightly. Louie had seen many beautiful celebrity models on Earth, but they were simply ugly maids in front of this elf.
Other than the elf queen whose face seemed to be permanently hidden by mist, the elf in front of him was the most beautiful woman Louie had ever seen.
It was no wonder that so many races wanted to have elven slaves. Even a dragon-like him had the impulse to have her bear his children.
Louie’s gaze made Sisna feel a burst of oppression. It was not that Louie released an aura, but that his Godly might from before had cast a deep shadow in Sisna’s heart. Even the gaze of Louie's baby dragon form could stir faint awe inside her.
“Right…… I remember that you are called Sisna, yes……?”
Louie recalled his descent into this world. The elf queen had called out this elf’s name, so he said it with his child-like voice.
“Yes. I am Her Majesty’s bodyguard, the leader of the Silver Moon Kingdom’s army, Sisna……”
The elf remained humble. Although the dragon in front looked to be amiable and not at all grumpy, Sisna felt that it was most likely the dragon’s wisdom brought about by his many years of growth that was different from those young dragons.
“So Sisna, tell me what you’re here for?”
Although the elf was beautiful enough to stir even his reproductive urges, Louie decided to prioritize his own safety. After all, as the saying went, ‘after one is fed and warmed, their sexual desires come next’.
“I was ordered by Her Majesty to bring the elven army here and see what we need to do for Lord Caracolon. Without your consent, I have sent troops to patrol the city and maintain law and order. I hope you will forgive me.”
Sisna bowed her head deeply, making herself appear as small as possible and raising up Louie.
The real order that she had received from the queen was not this, but to wait until the dragon had sacked the city, robbed the treasures and left, then the elves would quickly seize it. However, they did not expect the dragon to capture the city for itself. Given the new developments, Sisna immediately changed her goals.
Louie was stunned when he heard Sisna’s words. He felt embarrassed that he had only focused on the luxurious palace and the treasure inside and nearly forgot about the city on the brink of destruction.
He did not expect that his thoughts were becoming more and more like a dragon’s.
But soon, Louie was distressed again. He recalled that his highest ever official position as a human was the leader of a small group charged with collecting homework. He simply did not know how to manage a city!
