After receiving a love confession from Pigna, I leave in the morning to defeat the demon .
However I traveled alone . I couldn’t sleep because of the monster on the way . I think I will get some companion later .
The first one is a warrior called Broad . I met him on the way when he lost all of his money . It was stolen by his party then they abandoned him . He attacked me at first because he is now a bandit . However after I defeat him and tell him I am the hero, he is willing to help .
I will have taciturn expressionless genius magical girl Paula to help me . A genius child from Torumekia empire . She will accept to be my helper at the cost of me gathering materials for her research .
I have a hard time .
From rare medicinal herbs, internal organs of powerful monsters . Afterall is her research successful?
The last one is bloody priest Gorham . Rather than his healing capability, he was famous for repelling monster by beating them using a staff . The time he finished, his robe is dyed red with blood . He was feared by the people however he agreed to join me when I tell him that I want to defeat the demon lord .
Pigna, look at me now . I have dependable friends .
After that I come to Assurado continent . I will be going trough a rites of passage of the Guardian Dragon God of Sloth .
They said the first hero doesn’t need to do this, but since the demon grow stronger, we need to get the blessing to be stronger .
However, God of Sloth . Is it the real deal? I mean, getting stronger and “sloth” is like the completely different things .
Except from Gozman empire coronation ordeal, usually the area is off limits .
We asked Harold emperor which newly enthroned and he said .
“The shrine of God of sloth may not look promising . However the legend was true . If you could pass the lazy barrier, the Dragon God will give you his blessing . ”
I was asking about the detail but he said .
” Don’t worry . It’s something you could handle . However I wish for your success . ”
After that the guards take us to the shrine entrance . We enters afterwards . ” how long . . ? ”
” it’s far… ”
After a while we entered, no one is not complaining .
Hours! I’m tired physically and mentally .
” Why did the emperor said it was easy? ”
Broad sighed . Although he loves training, just walking is boring .
” Assurado people is famous for hard work . We need to be diligence . The seemingly endless cave is the embodiment of their national policy . ”
Gorham said that with a villainous face that emerges under the torch light .
” This place have a great mana atmosphere . ” the eyes of always taciturn expressionless Paula is shining .
” The emperor said the barrier is making us lazy . ”
” Also it was harmful to the body if we stayed too long . Will be too lazy to think, breath, and eventually died . ”
” How scary . . ”
Broad was groaning and sweating .
” This is truly a trial of God of Sloth . ” ” Just hang on . ”
I keep on yelling to keep our spirit up . We finally arrived at the inner shrine .
What greets js is a incredibly beautiful woman . There is also a huge black dragon . It must be the Guardian Dragon God of Sloth .
It’s dangerous . Just facing him, my legs is trembling . The 3 people behind me also suffered under the pressure . However we can’t give up .
“My name is Ars Funnel . I am here to ask for a blessing . ” it is the hero courage .
” Oh well . If that’s so, hero . Please be prepared . ” He show his fangs, I’m not afraid . Absolutely not . Pigna is waiting for me .
Oh, the hero have come again . I wonder when did I started the brave hero operation . Because I know the truth .
Makai world is a harsh world . Because of mana stream, they couldn’t cultivate enough food . Therefore to resolve it, the resident of Makai decided to invade the ground . Therefore I was the guardian of this world . I also have a responsibility to protect it, regardless of race .
I want to create a peace between human world and Makai, however battle between race is hard to resolve .
There are races like elf, fairy, beast, dwarf and many more . They also have guardian god like me . However no one is liking my hero idea . How to solve it? Battle between races like elf trying to dominate using magic, beast race against slavery, it all run deep down . Like Makai against human, only time could tell . To resolve the dispute is my job as a Guardian God .
It was a happy future but it is a cumbersome work . I need to overlook the hero .
Well, I need to change my appearance because the pressure was too great for them . I jumped of my bed and lift my mana . I am a Guardian God but not exactly a Dragon . The Dragon shape was made by my consciousness by shaping mana . That’s the real form of Guardian Dragon God . It was made from my memory as a high school student .
I was in a presence of almighty being . I was told that I will be the world’s guardian . To do that, I need to be the strongest . My thoughts was the strongest creature . Because of that, I ended up with a dragon shaped body .
Before I land, my makeover is complete . It is my human form .
Dressed in scales instead of clothes, long black hair flowing, three pairs of wing and tail comes out from my back .
“Now, are you ready hero? ”
