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.
