climbed up the trunk of the tree, weaving between the treetops to wait for an opportunity to move.
The team had to retreat to a wider area near the stream, where the dragon lost its advantage and was eventually cut by Bly’s sword.
Bly was so strong that he stomped down on the dragon’s back to keep it from getting up and shouted, “Get the rope!”
The ropes were soaked with magic potion, and the dragon’s limbs and wings were tied up and locked in the prepared cage.
It was very reluctant, and its mouth kept emitting “uh-ga, uh-ga” sounds, trying to provoke the crowd.
Bly’s arm was accidentally scratched by the dragon’s claw, and the team was cleaning the toxins from his wound, asking, “Captain, should we deal with it first?”
The lairage didn’t take blazing dragons, so they didn’t need to bring back live ones.
Bly looked at the dragon in the cage and before he could make a decision, the dragon suddenly started hissing as if he had predicted its fate.
One of the team members took out another rope and tied its mouth.
Ning Chu couldn’t bear to see this scene and turned his head.
These dragons were just being captured and hurt recklessly.
They were magical beasts no less, but to Ning Chu, they meant something different.
But he was new to the area, and if he didn’t go with this group, he wouldn’t even be able to stay alive in the woods.
Bly finally said, “It’s not good to bleed it here, let’s take it back.”
The group planned to rest for a while before setting off again, continuing to explore deeper into the woods to see if they could find more traces of the dragons.
After the team’s reminder, Ning Chu also found two Soul Rejuvenating Grass by the stream.
He squatted by the stream and saw his reflection in the stream water.
Ning Chu’s eyes were surprised and he raised his hand and touched his face.
The features of this body looked exactly the same as his former self, except that his pupils were a light teal color.
Ning Chu briefly sighed at the magic of transmigration and wrapped the Soul Rejuvenating Grass in a wide, washed leaf and put it in his jacket pocket.
He got up and prepared to return to the squad when the air around him suddenly heated up.
The familiar hot scent hit him, and the water on the grass and leaves by the stream smoldered with white smoke.
Ning Chu subconsciously looked up, and a dragon roar cut through the sky.
The blazing dragon in the cage was wilting a moment ago, but now it started to get excited again, and its horns kept hitting the cage.
Bly got up with a start, looking incredulous, “It… It’s still around?”
When he decided to continue capturing the dragon, Bly took a chance, the Scarlet Flame Dragon didn’t like dense woods and didn’t often come to this area, so yesterday’s encounter with it might’ve been an accident.
Moreover, after it rescued its kind, it let them go, so it was likely it was just passing by.
Bly’s face was ashen, still making a last stand, raising his heavy sword in front of his body, “Alert!”
In the nick of time, he didn’t forget to shout towards Ning Chu at the stream, “Hide!”
A flash of red light swept down in a matter of moments, and the hurricane of wind raised by the dragon’s wings instantly lifted the squad over.
The red dragon soared high into the air, reversed its direction in response to the wind, and swooped back down with fury, its claws striking hard at the magic cage the team had gathered in a panic.
The cage was damaged in the confusion and the dragon ran away, but the Scarlet Flame Dragon didn’t stop there, and Bly led the team back into the forest, trying to stall its attack with the terrain.
Ning Chu was the furthest away from the stream, almost completely forgotten.
He could have turned and fled immediately, but came to a halt in the face of the red dragon.
The dense woods couldn’t stop the Scarlet Flame Dragon, and with a swipe of its tail, it easily scraped down a large tree.
It still didn’t use flame attacks, but in front of the strong power… It was almost a one-sided slaughter of the squad.
Compared to now, yesterday was just playing house with them.
The squad of a dozen people were either dead or wounded in a short time, so Bly told the crowd to scatter and flee, those able to run did.
His loud commanding appearance attracted the attention of the Scarlet Flame Dragon, which saw that this man was the leader of the squad.
The red dragon’s eyes squeezed slightly and attacked in Bly’s direction.
Bly raised his sword to resist, but he was too strong to fight a dragon, not to mention he was wounded.
He was jolted back several steps by the dragon’s claws, sweet blood gushing from his throat, and fell to the ground and passed out.
The team was dead and wounded, and when he saw that Bly, who took care of him the most, was also going to die under the dragon’s claws, Ning Chu blurted out, “San San—!”
San San was Ning Chu’s usual way of calling Third Cub.
He wasn’t very good at naming and sometimes called First Cub “Boss” and Second Cub “Two”.
When it was Third Cub’s turn, Ning Chu thought it didn’t sound good, so he called it “San San”.
Although Third Cub was skinny, he still listened to Ning Chu’s words.
He spit dragon flames and often helped Ning Chu to make fire and boil water.
He was so small that he had to follow Ning Chu’s example and went to the back of the mountain to “cut down a tree”.
After scratching the trunk of the tree for half a day, he was so angry that he burned the tree with a fire.
Ning Chu couldn’t say anything to reproach him, only gently pinched his horn, “Don’t do that again.”
The Scarlet Flame Dragon in front of him was no longer the young dragon cub that he once was, and Ning Chu’s heart was actually not hopeful when he called out ‘San San.’
However, the red dragon stopped with a start.
The dragon claws shifted direction and slapped the ground at Bly’s side, sending dirt flying everywhere, and it turned its head in the direction of the sound, only to find a figure not far away.
Black hair and teal eyes, a weak human.
Seeing that Scarlet Flame Dragon was really stopped by his own shout, Ning Chu froze for a moment and moved forward, his voice shaking slightly, “San San… Are you Third Cub?”
Most of the squad had escaped, and the rest of them were on the ground, their lives still uncertain.
He was a little excited, not the least bit afraid of the giant dragon in front of him, wanting to look at its outstretched soft palm and seemed to want to touch its scales.
“San San, I’m…” Ning Chu’s “I’m dad” hadn’t finished, when the red dragon moved.
It spewed hot dragon breath between its nose, slightly annoyed, tossed his head, took a step back and turned to fly away.
Ning Chu watched as Third Cub’s silhouette grew farther and farther away, disappearing into the air as it had yesterday, with an indescribable feeling at the bottom of his heart.
It had just flown away.
It all happened so fast that its hesitation and inquiry just now seemed to be Ning Chu’s illusion.
But the wreckage around it proved that it had indeed stayed here.
Bly’s breath was still there, and Ning Chu struggled to move him to the flat ground and check the condition of the others.
Unfortunately, all but Bly were dead.
Ning Chu counted the number of people in the squad, there were about eight or nine people who had taken advantage of the chaos to escape.
Bly didn’t look too good.
Ning Chu searched Bly’s entire body and found a small medicine bottle on him.
Ning Chu carefully identified it, and the words “hemostatic” were written on it.
Ning Chu poured one out, pried open Bly’s mouth and fed it to him, and then made him drink some stream water.
After waiting for about half an hour, Bly’s breathing stabilized and his eyes opened quickly.
He struggled to get up in spite of his injuries, and Ning Chu rushed to help him, “How are you?”
Bly covered his lips and coughed, his voice was dry, “I’m not dead?”
Before he passed out, he saw the Scarlet Flame Dragon’s claws swinging at him, and thought he would die for sure, but he could still open his eyes.
Ning Chu didn’t mention what happened afterwards, and only said, “It… the Scarlet Flame Dragon left.”
In that situation, Bly didn’t believe Scarlet Flame Dragon would leave him alone a second time, but he did still breathe.
He didn’t have the energy to look deeper and let Ning Chu help him over to the body of one of the men on the ground.
Bly searched through his team’s clothes and found a healing potion to take before he felt better.
He got up on his own, counted the dead team members and relocated them to the stream, covering them with branches and leaves.
Ning Chu helped and said, “The others must be safe now.”
Bly responded, and after doing so, he looked remorseful, “I should have taken them away yesterday.”
This was also the first time Ning Chu dealt with such a thing, so he was silent and didn’t know what to say.
Bly then in turn comforted him, “In battle, death is honorable.
I will personally send condolences to their families.”
The mercenaries signed a life and death contract before they joined, and each time they took the commission they had to be prepared not to return, and when an accident happened to a member of their team, Bly was sad, but he quickly adjusted his mood.
He put away his heavy sword and said to Ning Chu, “Let’s go, I’ll take you back to the Academy.”
Ning Chu didn’t refuse, and when he stopped for a break on the way, Bly took out some purple gold coins and insisted on giving them to Ning Chu.
Ning Chu hurriedly waved his hand, “That’s… That’s not needed…”
Bly insisted, “Take it.”
At the beginning, Bly only intended to help Ning Chu because he remembered an old acquaintance, but now Ning Chu didn’t run away in a crisis.
If it wasn’t for the hemostatic medicine Ning Chu fed him, he might not have been able to wake up at all.
So to Bly, Ning Chu saved his life, and he had to ensure Ning Chu’s safety and escort him back to the Academy anyway.
He also saw that Ning Chu had nothing on him, and a magic wand was old and worn out.
He guessed that he must be from a poor family, and took the second level assignment to earn money and came to the forest alone.
A few purple gold coins were nothing to Bly, he just hoped it would be helpful to Ning Chu.
Ning Chu excused himself a few times, but accepted it.
He was very grateful and thanked him repeatedly, “Thank you…”
He had just put the purple gold coins into his pocket when the familiar electronic system sounded,【Credit detected, do you want to recharge?】
Ning Chu’s eyes widened, wasn’t that what he needed? He said silently in his mind, “Yes.”
Bly gave him a total of five purple gold coins, and the system took them all without question, and Ning Chu’s pockets suddenly lightened.
The《Dragon Island》interface appeared, and the system prompted,【You have unlocked the profile card, do you want to view it?】
The data card was the status bar of all the dragon cubs on Dragon Island, and he could see their current location and status.
Ning Chu didn’t hesitate, “Yes.”
【The data card has been loaded.】
Ning Chu, who was inexplicably nervous at this point, took a few deep breaths and opened the data cards.
