The little black dragon was very reserved, and only licked it gently. He raised his head slightly to see Ning Chu’s response.
The skin on Ning Chu’s chin still had a little itch, like being scraped by a cat’s barbed tongue, although he had never owned a cat, somehow he felt it was similar to a dragon. He and the little black dragon’s eyes met, and Wuuth’s face suddenly flew into his mind.
If he were in human form now, would he look like this…
Ning Chu didn’t think much about it on the way back, including when he was suspicious before, but now somehow…
It was a little awkward.
Ning Chu and the little black dragon stared at each other, and a faint blush came to his face. He coughed lightly to hide his embarrassment, averted his eyes, and put the little black dragon back on the bed.
The little black dragon didn’t get the desired response, and silently lay on its side, but he didn’t notice Ning Chu’s abnormality.
The excited Fourth Cub finally calmed down a bit, touching Fifth Cub’s fleshy paws and noticeably grown wings from time to time.
Ning Chu was right, Fifth Cub had really gained a lot of weight! She looked better than her previous state, and her aura was more intense!
Fifth Cub was happy for a while, and returned to Ning Chu’s side, calling out “wuwu”. Why did you come back so late?
Ning Chu locked the door of the room, picked up Fifth Cub, and told her and the little black dragon what happened last night. The only thing he didn’t mention was the pair of dragon horns that he burned in the end, Third Cub and Fourth Cub also didn’t say anything.
Midway the little black dragon approached, [Don’t tell him…]
Third Cub turned his head and gave him a reassuring look, Fourth Cub looked at them both and plopped down and continued to stay close to Fifth Cub.
He didn’t care about the you-know-what between Wuuth and Ning Chu, he only knew that Ning Chu and Little Five were back, and that was the most important thing.
Hearing Ning Chu say that the Church people took the initiative to attack him and Third Cub, and even intended to capture them, the little black dragon’s dark red eyes sank slightly.
Ning Chu’s breath was a little unsteady when he mentioned that none of the men were left alive, trying to conceal his anger.
The little black dragon was keenly aware of Ning Chu’s change and followed his gaze to the dumbfounded Fifth Cub. He must be hiding something else, something to do with Fifth Cub.
The little black dragon guessed almost instantly, got up and flew out.
Ning Chu was quick to catch it, “Where are you going?”
The little black dragon was furious, hot dragon breath sprayed between his nose, claws hooked in Ning Chu’s cuffs. He wanted to go to the Church to take revenge for Little Five.
After coming to the human world for so long, even if Wuuth didn’t like contact with this race, he also knew that not all humans were evil-minded.
After Little Five was killed, several dragons were full of anger and had nowhere to vent it, and wanted to raze a hundred miles to the ground. But Wuuth didn’t want to hurt the innocent, so he asked Third Cub to search the last place where Little Five had disappeared, trying to find traces of the group.
Now that he finally knew who had done it, what was he waiting for?
Ning Chu held onto him and guessed, “You… You’re going to the Church?”
The little black dragon quieted down for the moment, as if acquiescing.
Fifth Cub on the bed was very confused, looking at the one man and the dragon. Fourth Cub raised one side of his dragon wings to block her view, and lowered his head to arch into Fifth Cub, trying to divert her attention.
“The Academy is now blocked, how will you get out?” Ning Chu held the little black dragon tightly to keep him from moving, “Don’t be impulsive yet, what if you are found out?”
The people outside had been unaware of the existence of another magic dragon, and he did not want Wuuth to be exposed. And the people who appeared last night, although weren’t difficult to deal with, Ning Chu felt that the Church wasn’t that simple. He soothed the little black dragon in his arms and took out the things he found on the corpses one by one.
The disk was among them. Ning Chu held it in his hand and examined it carefully, but the pointer on it was lying quietly at the moment, not reacting at all. He tried to inject a trace of magic element, but still no response.
It was still moving last night, could it be damaged?
Ning Chu put down the disk and opened the map.
The map was marked with red, green, and purple lines in various places, and Ning Chu immediately recognized the topography of Enigma Forest and Lance Academy on it.
The red marks were the most numerous around Enigma Forest and one place was the Nuba River.
These… These were the places where Third Cub had appeared before.
Ning Chu was alarmed for a moment, and then noticed that the location of Lance Academy wasn’t marked on the map. He was a little relieved that these people didn’t know that several dragons were hiding in the Academy.
And the little black dragon had calmed down, the Academy now raised its magic shield, wanting to get out wasn’t so easy.
If they forced their way through, Ning Chu and the other dragons may be at risk of being discovered. He restrained himself for the moment, came to Fifth Cub’s side, and touched her forehead.
Ning Chu put away the disc and map, and charged all the purple gold and gold coins he had scavenged into the game. The people of the Church really had money, and Ning Chu’s game account had 20,000 more credits in it at once.
Together with the money he had earned earlier, he had nearly 30,000 credits, which was more than enough to buy the supplies he needed for Dragon Island and the Dragon Crystals for Fifth Cub, and he hadn’t used the bag of purple gold coins that Wuuth had given him yet either.
However… Ning Chu opened the mall again and clicked on the option to create a Dragon Island.
With the new Dragon Island, he could bring all the ordinary dragons there, away from the other races, and they would never have to be hunted again.
If he couldn’t fit them on one, he could build a second one. However, to build a Dragon Island required a million, even if he added the ones given by Wuuth, it was still not enough.
What other way to make money quickly… he didn’t know how long the school would be closed, and couldn’t seem to go to Crow Market these days.
Ning Chu turned off the game and lay back on his bed, dazed.
Or… Like the ones last night, he wouldn’t mind a few more waves.
He had a few dragon cubs in the Academy, so he did need to hide himself, but as long as he had the chance, he wouldn’t let anyone from the Church go.
Fifth Cub came up close to Ning Chu and nuzzled his earlobe at the nape of his neck. Ning Chu rolled over and stroked her wings and horns, and turned his head to see Third Cub and Fourth Cub playing around, and the little black dragon crouching on the side of the bed.
One person and four dragons on a narrow single bed.
Wasn’t it getting too crowded…
Ning Chu looked around, thinking about whether to pull up the bed curtain a notch, make a baffle for a simple bunk, so that all the dragon cubs could sleep on it.
As he was thinking, Bowen came back.
Ning Chu heard Bowen’s footsteps and quickly unlocked the door before he turned the doorknob, pulled the curtain and made a silent gesture to the little dragon cubs inside.
Bowen opened the door, surprised, “You’re back! I didn’t see you when I got up this morning, so I thought you were doing something…”
“I was in a bit of a hurry and left before dawn,” Ning Chu said vaguely, asking Bowen, “When I came back, the doorman said there was a special situation recently. What happened?”
Bowen put down the textbook in his hand and said with some concern and fear, “I heard that the fire dragon is back, and it’s near the Academy.” He put his hand to his mouth and lowered his voice, “And it killed a few Church members.”
Ning Chu sat on the edge of the bed, the curtain behind him drawn tightly, as he pretended to be surprised, “Really?”
Bowen nodded solemnly, “There was a practical class in the morning, but Clark didn’t show up, so it was temporarily changed to a theory class.”
Sure enough, because of the corpse and the mark left by the dragon, the Academy put up the magic shield that rose in the middle of the night to protect the students.
Ning Chu, who had a few dragons hiding behind him, had mixed feelings and was helpless. If he said magic dragons wouldn’t attack Academy students at all, would anyone believe him?
“Oh yeah,” Bowen went to bed for a nap before remembering something else, “the Church’s grand elder is here to ask questions from Wuuth and ‘Ning’ of the arena. “
If someone among the students knew their whereabouts, hopefully they would inform the teacher or the Church in time.
Ning Chu frowned invisibly, “Questioning? What kind of questions?”
“I don’t know.”
On that map, the vicinity of the Nuba River was also marked, and he had a vague feeling that the Church’s desire to find him and Wuuth was related to Third Cub.
The group really had nothing to lose, and had to look for traces of magic dragons.
Ning Chu got into the curtain of the bed and lay down, touching the front paws of the little black dragon on the pillow with his fingers, “They can’t find Wuuth?”
Bowen’s voice came from across the room, “It seems so. No one has seen Wuuth in the past few days.”
“I don’t think it’s a good thing,” Ning Chu poked the little black dragon’s paw again, as if talking to Bowen, and as if talking to himself, “He better not show up.”
Bowen responded casually, and the quarters fell silent immediately after.
The little black dragon lifted his paws, pressed Ning Chu’s mischievous fingers, and plopped down. At this kind of time, of course he wouldn’t show himself.
But wasn’t Ning Chu saying this proof that he was concerned about his human form?
Fifth Cub was at this moment lying on her back in her nest on the dragon climbing frame, taking a nap, while Third Cub and Fourth Cub were huddled together in another nest above.
Ning Chu was now surrounded by no other dragons, so the little black dragon leaned closer and almost got into Ning Chu’s neck.
Ning Chu didn’t know what he wanted and held his breath. Could it be that what he had just said was too obvious and Wuuth had found out? Wait, even if he was found out, he shouldn’t be the one who was nervous, right?
The little black dragon buried its head and rubbed Ning Chu with his horn.
At this time in the past, Ning Chu would’ve been flattered, because Cubbie was too cold, and he could count on two hands to be close to him like this. The little black dragon sniffed Ning Chu’s scent again, even though it had been a night, he still smelled the scent of other dragons on Ning Chu.
Most of it was left by the Heavenly Thunder Dragon, and displeasure surfaced in the little black dragon’s eyes. He was happy to see him once and for all, not to mention that Ning Chu had just cared for his human form.
The little black dragon lowered his head and licked the side of Ning Chu’s face little by little. He was very serious, paws clasping Ning Chu’s collar, like a good black cat.
But he wasn’t.
Ning Chu froze for two seconds, while his face turned red again.
Bowen, who hadn’t fallen asleep yet, was awakened by a sudden sound and pulled back the bed curtain.
Ning Chu somehow rolled out of bed with a weird look on his face.
Bowen asked with concern, “What’s gotten into you?”
Ning Chu got up in a hurry, “Nothing… I just accidentally… This bed is too narrow.”
