Adopting Disaster - Chapter 79 Part 1

 Kalton Mountain Range (2)

'I thought she would have a lot of muscles since she's a giant slayer, but why is she so slim...?'

She looked no different than when she first saw her portrait.

Bright blonde hair cut neatly into a bobcut, and jade-like green eyes.

A sleek jawline with a restrained beauty in her expression and face.

She looked like a lady who, if she just took off her armor, any man would easily fall for.

'No, maybe she has a lot of muscles underneath...'

She shook off the ugly jealousy that came up once again.

She looked at Adonis with the most polite face she could muster.

Contrary to Dolores' thought that she had calmly moved on, Adonis noticed the subtle change.

'Are magicians always this wary of others?'

Adonis thought that the jealousy Dolores had shown was political vigilance.

It's a place where the rulers of a kingdom and the tower masters in charge of a region confronted each other, so it's natural to be tense.

'I understand it's a reasonable thing, but I wish she would let go of such vigilance when entering this jungle...'

Knights are protectors.

If you don't trust those who protect you, the knights cannot fulfill their mission.

As Adonis was thinking, he quietly approached Reed and started a conversation.

"Master of Silence Tower."

"Yes, please speak, Adonis."

"I have something to tell you about the Master of the Wallin Tower."

Hearing Adonis' worried expression about the Wallin Tower's master, Reed couldn't help but be tense.

"Is there a problem? If you don't like the master of Wallin Tower..."

"No, it's not that. Among the magicians, she seems like a nice person similar to the master of Silence Tower... But this is my problem."

"What's the problem?"

Adonis's face turned slightly red.

"I'm embarrassed to say, but I don't know what the most appropriate conversation would be with a woman of the same age...”

"…Excuse me?"

Reed blinked his eyes at those words.

Seeing Reed's reaction, Adonis became even more flustered.

"I've lived among rough men, and since my teenage years, I haven't had a single conversation with a female peer. In order for the knights to fulfill their duties, I should at least help her relax, but it's not going as well as I thought."

"…I understand. Don't worry too much. I'll try talking to her."

"Thank you."

At Adonis's words, Reed went behind Dolores and called her.


"Oh, don't call me that! Why?"

"Adonis is a little awkward with women her age, so I think you need to help her. Is that okay?"

"Me, me?"

Dolores was taken aback by those words.

"If Adonis doesn't like it, there's nothing I can do, but at least for this mission, I'd like you to help her relax."

When Reed politely asked her, Dolores averted her eyes.

It was a similar feeling to Adonis.

"Well, even if you say that…"


"I, it's my first time too…"


"Even when I was in Escolleia, and when I entered the Magic Tower, I was the youngest... and I achieved the title of tower master at the youngest age too…"

She didn't have anyone her age who could be called a friend.

Other magicians were also intimidated by the genius Dolores, so she didn't have any peers who could be called friends.

'…How do I deal with these two?'

It was pitiful how they awkwardly tried to smile at each other when their eyes met.


"What is it?"

"Can you make something that selects conversation topics? Right now."

"…What kind of nonsense are you talking about?"

"No, it was just a silly idea."

Reed retracted his words when even the eccentric inventor Kaitlyn looked at him like he was strange.

A moment later, Larksper, who was maintaining his weapons, stood up and spoke to Reed.

"Larksper is ready. Can we leave now?"

"It should be almost over. Is it safe to go from Kalton Mountain Range to your tribe?"

"I can't guarantee it. There are many monsters in the Kalton Mountain Range. And there are many other orc tribes."

It meant that not all orcs were as friendly towards humans as Larksper.

"The tower master helps Larksper. Helps the tribe. So you are like my life and my brother."

"A brother. Thank you for that".

Larksper approached Reed and carefully nudged his head forward.

As the big head approached, Reed was surprised and backed away.

"What are you doing?"

"Um, sorry."

With that, Larksper quickly turned his body.

Adonis and his knights seemed to have finished their preparations, and the march began.

Larksper, the guide, led the way, and the others walked in formation to easily protect Reed and the other magicians.

Reed not only observed but also instructed the accompanying magicians to use detection magic to help with their vigilance.

"It's quiet."

About 30 minutes into the walk, Larksper, who was in the lead, spoke, and Adonis agreed.

"That's right. I don't even feel the presence of monsters."

"We should be on guard. Monsters could ambush us."

Adonis, who had entered the Kalton Mountain Range during the selection test, and even Larksper, who had lived in the range, felt that this phenomenon was strange.

'It's fortunate that we don't have to fight a bloody battle.'

Although it was strange, it was good news for Reed.

Because he could more comfortably protect Rosaria.

As Reed looked down at Rosaria, her ruby eyes, which had been looking up at him for a while, curved into a crescent moon and smiled.

Despite everyone being tense, she looked like an innocent person out for a walk.

"I feel the presence of monsters."

A magician using detection magic said so.

Larksper, who was in the lead, walked about ten more steps and raised his right hand, signaling to stop.

He picked up some dirt from the ground and sniffed it.

Larksper dusted off the dirt and took a deep breath.

With a confident posture, he shouted loudly.

"Larksper! Lokan! Krea!"
