dorm, Ning Chu immediately lifted the covers and got out of bed, locking the door behind him.
He pulled out the box under the bed and showed the dragon egg inside to the little black dragon, saying excitedly, “This is Little Five! She should be breaking her shell soon, I…”
Ning Chu’s voice trailed off as he stroked the egg, “Do you know about this?”
The little black dragon squatted beside Ning Chu and nodded gently.
He had already seen it once last night and wasn’t so excited about it, but Ning Chu didn’t care.
Cubbie used to be such a quiet and silent character, but he always took good care of Little Five, every time he would take the oat grass that Little Five offered, and then quietly put it back into her bowl.
Ning Chu sighed and put away the dragon egg.
There was no Cubbie in the game’s contract menu, so he couldn’t sign a contract with him, which meant he couldn’t communicate with him either.
Ning Chu still had some questions he wanted to ask, so he asked Third Cub to help translate the message.
“Did you find Cubbie nearby and that’s why you brought him here?” Ning Chu asked as he squeezed Third Cub’s paw.
Third Cub took a look at the little black dragon and gave an “aowu”.
“I know Fourth Cub is on Dragon Island, but where are the other dragons?” Ning Chu asked again, “Does Cubbie know where Boss and Second Cub are?”
Chilly was on another island taking care of the juvenile dragon cub, and Blast was MIA.
In fact, Wuuth and a few other dragons hadn’t heard from the Gale Dragon in a long time either.
By roughly translating and then passing to Ning Chu it turned out that First Cub was now occupied with something and Second Cub was nowhere to be found.
“Mn,” Ning Chu turned his head to hug the little black dragon, “If only I could sign a contract with you too… Is it because your breed hasn’t been discovered yet?”
He still didn’t know Cubbie’s real name and ability, and couldn’t even sign a contract.
The little black dragon couldn’t understand the meaning of the second half of the sentence, only that Ning Chu said he couldn’t make a contract with him.
How could he be with other dragons… He swept a glance at Third Cub, who was lying on the side licking his claws, with cold eyes.
After asking what he wanted to ask, Ning Chu talked about his situation, “I’m a student now, so sometimes I have to go to class during the day, and at night I have to earn money.”
Earn money? The little black dragon looked up.
Was he short of money?
Ning Chu said while buying two skinned rabbits from the game store, giving both little dragon cubs a share.
“When I’m not in the dormitory, you must hide well.
Don’t be found by others.”
Ning Chu’s expression became serious, “There are bad people looking for magic dragons outside, so you guys should stay by my side, so I feel more at ease.”
The little black dragon was silent for a moment, biting down on the rabbit’s leg.
Perhaps the school was indeed a good place to hide, those people must not be able to guess that magic dragons would follow a first-year student.
When the time was right, he could take Ning Chu with him to get out of here and return to Dragon Island.
Ning Chu stayed in the dorm until the afternoon, during which time Bowen returned at noon to join him in the cafeteria, and the two little dragon cubs hid under the covers together.
Wuuth looked at Third Cub who was next to him, [Every day is like this?]
Third Cub thought it was fine, so he curled up in the bed sheet, [Yes… But only for a while.]
He liked following Ning Chu, so even though he had to hide, he didn’t feel uncomfortable, especially since Little Five was also in the dorm.
Wuuth pressed on, and when the people in the way finally left, he immediately came out from under the covers.
Later in the afternoon, Ning Chu went to Crow Market.
Wuuth knew he was going to the arena and turned back into his human form, “I’m going out.”
Third Cub plopped down on the edge of the bed and wagged his tail in response.
Yesterday Wuuth was defeated without a fight, and Ning Chu’s name was raised a few more notches.
More challenges were sent in, and this time there were even a few in the top 20.
Ning Chu didn’t want to take on challenges with too high a ranking for the time being, since he would still get the same number of points if he won anyway, so he might as well take his time.
He still chose two with similar rankings to his own and gave them to Donald to arrange.
Donald squeezed his eyes at him, “Tell me honestly, why did Wuuth admit defeat yesterday?”
Ning Chu was confused, “I don’t know.”
His face didn’t look like he was pretending, and Donald wondered, “You two really don’t know each other well?”
“More than that,” Ning Chu emphasized, “I don’t know him at all.”
We’ve only met once or twice, and we’ve bet with Bowen.
“Then…” Donald was even more puzzled, “Wuuth came backstage to find you after the match yesterday.”
Ning Chu was stunned, “He was looking for me?”
Ning Chu was wary, “He’s not trying to back out, is he? He said he would admit defeat, and the bets are over…”
Donald laughed, “Of course not, he just asked and left.”
Strange… Ning Chu put on his mask, “I really don’t know him.”
As the battle was about to begin, Ning Chu entered with his round shield.
As soon as he appeared, a loud cheer erupted from the viewing platform.
Some people thought Ning Chu had lost yesterday when Wuuth conceded, but that didn’t stop Ning Chu from gaining a whole new group of fans.
Some students even made their own support signs, holding up a big “Ning” and shouting “Victory!”.
The expression under Ning Chu’s mask was incomprehensible, and he turned his head away from it, only to stumble upon a familiar figure.
An… unexpected person.
Wuuth had actually come.
He must’ve arrived late, the viewing platform has long since run out of seats, so he stood at the very top of the railing, looking far away at the arena at Ning Chu.
His aura was so strong that students around him didn’t dare to crowd him, so they consciously left a large circle of seats open, which was very conspicuous.
Naturally, others noticed Wuuth’s arrival and were talking about it.
“Am I hallucinating… Wuuth also watches other people’s battles?”
“Then I’m also hallucinating…”
“They must know each other! They must! I want to know who ‘Ning’ is…”
Ning Chu, “…”
If he wasn’t sure his memory wasn’t wrong, he probably would’ve believed it as well.
Ning Chu withdrew his eyes and stopped caring about Wuuth outside the ring, concentrating on the battle.
After winning two matches in a row, Ning Chu subconsciously looked up before retiring.
Wuuth was still in his original position, like a statue.
There was a break between the two matches, and he seemed to be standing there without moving.
Ning Chu hesitated for a moment and waved his hand in Wuuth’s direction.
Wuuth had come to see him… Right? Although he didn’t know him well, he should respond out of courtesy.
Seeing Ning Chu waving at Wuuth, the crowd outside was so excited that it almost confirmed the suspicion that they knew each other.
However, when Wuuth saw this scene, he turned around and walked away.
Ning Chu didn’t care, and then also left the arena.
He first went to visit the Cloud-Winged Dragon at the animal farm and fed it food and medicine before returning to the school dormitory.
Bowen was taking a shower and the door to their bathroom was finally fixed today.
Ning Chu, the one who was the cause of it all, offered to pay for it, and Bowen didn’t refuse.
Ning Chu sat on the edge of his bed, took out the money he made today, and counted it.
He won two games and earned 400 gold coins, but betting odds weren’t high, so he only earned 2 purple gold coins.
Ning Chu recharged all the money into the game, bought a cut of opaque fabric and planned to cover up the bed like Bowen did.
There were all kinds of tools available in the mall, and when Bowen came out of the shower, Ning Chu was almost done.
Bowen squinted at it, “Where did you get this curtain? It’s quite nice.”
“Outside the school gate, I picked it up randomly.” Ning Chu said casually, he pulled the curtain, put on his pajamas and went to take a shower.
When he came back, the little black dragon was squatting in the middle of the bed with a small bag in front of him.
Ning Chu picked it up and looked at it, “Whose is this?”
He turned his head, Bowen wasn’t in his bunk, probably went to visit another dormitory.
And this seemed to be… a storage bag.
Third Cub lifted one side of his dragon wing and pointed at the little black dragon.
Meaning, it was…
Ning Chu was surprised, while opening the pouch,, “Where did Cubbie get this thing…”
There was a space magic in the storage bag, so nothing could be seen from the outside, but when Ning Chu put his hand into the bag, he took out a round thing.
A purple gold coin.
Was it money?
Ning Chu carried the storage pouch and emptied out all the contents inside.
Purple gold coins kept pouring out from the pouch, piling up a small hill on the bed.
Ning Chu was dumbfounded, “This, this…”
The pile of purple gold coins was about 200, and there were several gold and copper coins mixed in it.
He was stunned for a moment and hurried to put the money on the bed back first.
Before Bowen returned, Ning Chu carried the bag, “Are these really Cubbie’s?”
Not to mention how Cubbie had a storage bag, where did he get so much money?… It couldn’t be that… Ning Chu immediately denied this thought, his cub wouldn’t do such a thing.
The little black dragon seemed to sense Ning Chu’s thoughts and was very unhappy, turning his head and flying to the inside corner of the bed with his back to him.
Third Cub came over and bit Ning Chu’s sleeve and tugged it, “Aowu…”
It told Ning Chu that these were really Cubbie’s and told him to take them without worry.
Ning Chu held the pouch, both touched and relieved.
He moved closer to the bed and picked up the little black dragon, “Cubbie is great, he has saved so much money.”
Ning Chu lowered his head and kissed the dragon’s horn on his forehead, “I still have money for myself, I’ll keep this for you first…”
The little black dragon claws were propped against Ning Chu’s face, before he rolled over to break free in panic, returning to the pillow and squatting on it as if nothing happened.
Ning Chu temporarily didn’t intend to charge the money in the storage bag into the game, he was afraid to put it elsewhere or that it would be lost, so he bought a small box with a lock from the mall.
He put the storage bag into the box and hid it under the bed, right next to the dragon egg.
At night, the bed curtains blocked out all the light and Ning Chu was sleeping.
The little black dragon rose in the darkness, squeezed the Third Cub out of his place just like yesterday, and lay down right next to Ning Chu’s neck.
