The Dragon Wise let out a howl and floated up into the sky. It turned its neck around and flew towards Alisa! This took everyone by surprise; no one was able to help.
(Big brother, give me strength). At that moment, her small frame danced in the sky.
The Dragon Wise continued flying straight, crashing into a large stone-laden wall.
The stone wall crumbled and fell apart, causing bits of rock to fall on the dragon.
The Dragon Wise extended its neck out as bricks fell and shattered off of it. Alisa then stabbed her sword through its throat! The dragon exhaled one last breath of fire into the sky and then collapsed.
“You did it, Alisa! Even I’ve never beaten a monster this size before,” said Tyrone.
Alisa panted in reply.
Alisa grabbed the jewel from the dragon’s forehead and then sat down with a plop. Finally relieving some stress, she loosened up her tense muscles. (Obtain item AMBER EYE, +2 MAGIC P, +200 MESETA)
“I-incredible! The Dragon Wise was really defeated! And by a girl, no less!” exclaimed the villagers who were just cowering moments ago. They began to gather around.
The villagers told Alisa about a village called Sopia which was nearby. Due to a gas that surrounds the village, there are many people who have carelessly gone there, never to come back. (Action Chart – Check “G”)
“That sounds suspicious. Maybe even La Shiec himself is there…”
Crossing over the desert, Alisa and party arrived at the village of Casba.
“Ah, so from what we heard in Uzo, there should be a cave with monsters in it nearby. Should we try going to that cave first?”
“Wait ― what is that?”
Alisa noticed a plume of smoke rising up. To make matters worse, the plumes of smoke quickly multiplied.
“What’s going on? Is it a fire?”
“Th-this can’t be happening!” From the area covered with smoke, the villagers screamed without cessation. “It’s Dragon Wise! He’s come out of his cave! This hasn’t happened in over 10 years!”
“Did you say Dragon Wise!?” this time Tyrone was shouting.
Dragon Wise was famous among dragons for having the precious jewel “Amber Eye” inlaid on its forehead. It is also known for being one of the more aggressive breeds. It’s said that countless numbers of people have tried and failed to defeat the dragon with the notion of stealing its jewel.
“Is that it right there?”
Alisa and her comrades stood still before a house that was up in flames. An enormous figure floated up from within the flames! The Dragon Wise’s tremendous gaping mouth made it appear as though it were laughing wickedly at the villagers who were scrambling to run away.
