A Misunderstood Mentor – Side Story 1 – Alice and the Ancient Dragon



 

 

It hast been several millennia since I was born.

Born as the Dragon King, I reigned over the summit of life.

Thus, I could not recognize this disgusting emotion at first.

 

Fear.

 

In front of my eyes was a human who could make me feel fear.

I was left trembling.

I had nothing left; no trump cards, no plot armor.

 

When I first saw her, I could not believe that she was a human.

She came to my emerald-studded limestone cave without warning.

Her aura seemed to be at the verge of exploding. She was trying to contain such a brutal strength withing her body, but a fine, sharp aura was leaking out of her small body without end.

The girl’s long, flowing hair fluttered in the wind, shining in a beautiful gold. Her eyes sparkled like an azure gem, and I couldn’t help but to admire its beauty.

Her features were yet more beautiful than any other human I had seen before. Clad in a silver armor and with a longsword strapped on her back, I was reminded of the mythical Valkyrie. 

 

“I’ve come.”

 

Whispering a single sentence, the human peacefully and calmly walked towards me.

I would give her a light blow.

Just a small sweep of my claws to pin her to the ground. Or that was how it was supposed to be.

However, the one to be pinned to the ground was me.

It was simply a pure difference in power.

This small human girl was overwhelmingly stronger than I.

Terror and dread echoed within my body.

It would seem that I was completely unable to get a single hit on this single human girl. Impossible. I could not forgive myself for such a lack of power.

 

“What is thy name?”

 

It hast been over a thousand years since I last asked a human for their name.

 

“Alice.”

 

A clear, pleasant sound resonated through my cave dwelling.

“Alice” became the second human’s name to be engraved upon my soul after the Grand Sage Nerissa.

 

“Splendid, Alice. Thou hast almost reached the summit of power. Thy power hast surpassed the limits of what a human can train to be. However, that is all thou amount to. Thou cannot defeat I, the one who standeth at the peak of draconic power.”

 

I bet my everything.

I undid my internal limiter.

My sealed power exploded out of deep within my body.

It was a power that I had crystalized within my body every day for the thousands of years since I was born. My final trump card.

 

“Farewell, Alice. I shall not forget thy name for forever into eternity.”

 

The most ancient of dragons. 

It was the deepest, most hidden secret of the one known as the Ancient Dragon, me. I had never used this most strongest attack.

 

“Rawr uwu xD”

I uwu’d with the strongest strength I’d ever mustered.

Thousands of years of accumulated power was unleashed into the material world with that single uwu. It was an uwu at contained the essence of my soul.

The uwu had no name. It was just a regular uwu, nothing more.

However, the power of muttering the forbidden word was just too strong.

Alice was looking at me, not even attempting to dodge. Perhaps she too realized that nothing could escape the might of the uwu. 

A great uwu, not dissimilar to the uwu that created life, enveloped Alice and the rest of the cave.

Everything was over.

Yet, right as I was about to relax, I heard a noise.

 

“OwO”

 

Alice yelled another forbidden word, its might equivalent to the omnipotent uwu.

It was a supreme OwO filled with e-girl and 40-year old male catfish vibes.

And that was all it took to completely disappear the uwu I’ve built since the start of my life. Swoosh, and it was gone.

 

“NANI!?”

 

“Omae wa mou shindeiru. owo”
