A blue water dragon appeared in front of us.
Blue Water Dragons are water-attribute creatures that are the third most powerful of the dragon species .
However, as they grow into adult Dragons, they become much stronger and wield the highest power among mid-ranking dragons.
And the scary thing is that there is a tremendous power difference between the lower and middle ranks.
To be honest, I don't know if I can even win against it.
"Toru-Sama, what are you going to do?"
"I guess I'll have to fight it. It's not like it's going to just let us go free."
The Water Dragon stares at us.
I would never have imagined that I would meet such an enemy at sea.
"Captain, how's the magic tank coming?"
"More than 90%."
"Will it stop a Dragon's breath attack?"
After giving orders to the captain, I went up to the deck with Kaede and Frau.
I ran into Monica in the hallway.
Apparently, the noise across the ship caused her to leave the infirmary.
"What's going on, is it the Kraken?!"
"No, it's a water dragon."
I stumbled backwards from the movements of the ship.
Even on another continent, a dragon is a monster that the races fear....
Even if the Kraken is dead, there is still a risk that the ship will be wrecked, I think the Dragon sees no difference between the Kraken and us.
Kaede came over to me and helped me to my feet.
"Don't worry. Master is here, and with him by our side, the Dragon will be eliminated in no time."
"You trust me that much? But it's hard for a person to kill a mid-ranked Dragon."
"Master is the master, I know you will be able to defeat it."
That is not really encouraging.
Monica tilts her head sideways.
But I'm a little worried because I feel Kaede's expectations of me are getting higher and higher.
Even if I have a high level, I am not invincible.
"We'd better get out soon."
"You're right. Monica, go back to the infirmary and stay there."
Monica returned to her room while I went out on deck with Kaede.
"It's still on alert."
"Yes, I wish it could just go away and leave us alone."
As the dragon looked at the ship, it was completely immobile.
The ship will try to change course and slowly move us away from the Dragon, just as I had ordered.
I thought maybe it might lose interest in us.
Suddenly, a roar from the Dragon echoed throughout the ship.
Do not run.
That's what I felt after hearing that roar.
"It's quite motivated."
"Maybe it thinks the ship is a living creature."
"So it thinks we're a monster that has entered its territory."
"Yes, there is no choice but to fight back."
I'm going to have to unleash the power of the sacred weapons.
Level 3000 → 4200.
I also activate my [Dragon Knight] and [Great Thief] jobs.
I called Rosuke, Sharkboy and Chupi for support.
And I accidentally let Kuratan out as well.
It's too much trouble to bring him back, so I've decided to leave him under Chupi's command.
"I will put up a shield. Please be prepared for impact."
A message was transmitted from the control room.
The Dragon was making a preliminary breathing motion.
A thin pink membrane covers the ship.
This was another function of the ship.
A blast of water hits the boat.
But thanks to the shields, there is almost no damage.
As expected of a ship built by an ancient race.
Its resistance is more than extraordinary.
"Start the bombing."
A flash of light shoots out of the weapon portals and strikes the Dragon.
An explosion is generated and the dragon screams in pain.
It appears to have been damaged.
Chupi gives the order, Rosuke and Sharkboy start attacking from the sky and sea.
Rosuke would fly past the dragon and smash his blades into the dragon's body.
In addition, Sharkboy released a flash of light under the sea and struck the beast, penetrating its body.
But the damage was so slight that it is far from being strong enough to defeat it.
I will use my [Master Tamer] job to boost Rosuke and Sharkboy's power.
Rosuke and Sharkboy's reinforced attacks seemed to have annoyed the dragon.
The Water Dragon seemed to recognize that the two were enemies that needed to be defeated first, and tried to eliminate them with several bites and breath attacks.
Chupi's instructions flew from above, and the two animals repeated their coordinated attacks with precision, as if they had trained beforehand.
"Thanks to Chupi, the beasts look more focused and powerful in their attacks."
"Yes, but Chupi is vulnerable because she only gives instructions, so Rosuke and Sharkboy are forced to be on the defensive."
"So why doesn't it just hit her directly?"
The dragon's mouth turned to Chupi.
Just before the dragon released its breath, Kuratan appeared and intervened.
Kuratan was hit hard by the blast of high pressure water.
No, he wasn't. Kuratan generated a shield that blocked the attack.
Meanwhile, Rosuke and Sharkboy continue to inflict damage and reduce the dragon's strength.
"Chupi, chupi, chupi."
The two began to back away after Chupi's instructions.
Looks like it's my turn.
I drew my sword and jumped into the sea.
With the lightness of [Great Thief], I ran over the surface of the sea.
I cut clean through the dragon's head like it was butter. My sword met no resistance as it pierced its body.
"That's a lot of food."
"We won't even be able to eat it all."
"Is there no choice but to pack as much as possible into storage and leave the rest as food for the monsters?"
The dragon's huge body floated in the sea.
And on top of it, the crew was chopping it up.
"Ueeh, you defeated the dragon!"
Looking back, there was Monica.
She approached us, leaned forward and looked at the corpse.
"Amazing, isn't it? The Lord defeated it."
"Toru-San is so powerful!"
Monica's eyes lit up as she looked at me.
Suddenly, she grabbed my hand and pulled me close.
"You have great power, Toru-San. I am impressed."
"It's no big deal."
"I don't think you should underestimate your power like that."
"You are too close to the Master. Please step away."
Kaede stands in the middle and pushes Monica back.
It looked like she was growling.
The hairs on her tail stood on end.
Then Kaede pulls me a bit, creating a distance of more than three meters from Monica.
"Now you may continue your talk."
"At this distance?"
"Yes, that's the right distance."
Suddenly she wavered, looking rather pale.
"You're still not in perfect shape. We'll talk about it later, but for now, get some rest."
I held out my hand and helped Monica up.
Monica leaned on Kaede and returned to the infirmary.
"Hey, my Lord!"
Frau appeared flying in front of me.
"Look, I've moved up a level."
"Oh yeah? How high is your level?"
“1300. I thought my eyes were deceiving me."
As one would expect after defeating a Dragon, the experience gained is nothing short of extraordinary.
Kaede probably also should have leveled up, I'll ask her later.
In the meantime, I checked my status and discovered that my level was 3300.
Chupi flies and descends to the ground before me.
She squats down and starts pecking at my feet.
"You've done very well."
I reached out my right hand and stroked her head as she rubbed at me.
She is very tender.
Now, let's ask the captain when we can resume our voyage.
Just after we left the deck, we heard a voice from behind us.
"Where is the dragon that Toru-Dono defeated?"
"Luvue-Sama, please take a closer look at it. It's right in front of you."
"Wow! This is amazing! So this is a mid-rank dragon of the original species! Vice-capitan, write this down in the research journal!"
"As I've said many times, your personal stuff should be written in your diary, not in the... Wait, what did you say, write this event in the journal? Wow, finally, Luvue-Sama gets it right!"
"What's that supposed to mean?"
After that, Luvue climbed on top of the dragon's carcass and was screaming excitedly.
Only a few days to go until we reach land.
