Ning Chu had looked up the catalog that day and found that this dragon was called a Cloud-Winged Dragon, whose most distinctive feature was the white feathers at the end of its wings, but now the sides of its wings were bare, the feathers having already fallen out when Ning Chu first saw it.
There was no one else around and Third Cub peeked out of Ning Chu’s jacket.
He was surprised and angry at the sight of the imprisoned Cloud-Winged Dragon, and whimpered lowly.
The Cloud-Winged Dragon’s eyes snapped open and looked at Third Cub incredulously, struggling to hold up its weak body and trying to move closer to Third Cub.
The cage was covered with defensive magic, so Third Cub didn’t dare to approach, and turned his head to Ning Chu behind him.
Ning Chu looked around and covered Third Cub with his jacket, leaving only one of his eyes out.
He explained in a whisper, “It’s badly injured, and I can’t bond with it, so I can’t take it away.”
Ning Chu wanted to try to heal it first, so he opened the game to rummage through the mall’s medicine section and spent fifty credits to buy a cure-all.
He didn’t know the health condition of the Cloud-Winged Dragon, but the universal medicine could cure all diseases and came with tonic effects.
Ning Chu quietly put the medicine on the edge of the cage and pushed it in with his hand.
Faced with Ning Chu, a human with the Scarlet Flame Dragon, the Cloud-Winged Dragon remained wary, lying motionless until Third Cub anxiously urged him to move.
He looked down and sniffed the herb-scented orb on the ground, and finally obediently ate it.
Ning Chu sighed with relief and whispered, “I’ll see you tomorrow.”
He hid Third Cub and left as quietly as he had come.
The morning’s earnings were about 60 purple gold coins, and when Ning Chu checked his game balance after returning to his dorm, he only had 130 credits left.
The rest was spent on buying dragon crystals, medicine for the Cloud-Winged Dragon, and other miscellaneous things for Dragon Island.
The time for the dragon egg to hatch was still uncertain, but until then, Ning Chu wanted to ensure the supply of dragon crystals.
Fifth Cub’s body wasn’t in very good shape before, and he didn’t know if it was because she was herbivorous and unlike other small dragon cubs, but she was really skinny.
On rainy days, she was often cold and kept sneezing.
Ning Chu had given her a lot of health drugs that didn’t have much effect.
This time, before she hatched, he hoped to increase her health from the eggshell and maybe her body would have some improvement.
The dragon crystal was one 150 a piece, but it would gradually lose its effect after ten days.
Before saving enough supplies of 100 purple gold coins, Ning Chu couldn’t go to the commissioning house to ask for an advance again.
The most important thing now was to earn money.
Bowen was taking a nap, so Ning Chu turned his back to his bunk and whispered to Third Cub in his arms, “Will you go out with me again this afternoon? Thank you for your hard work.”
Third Cub nodded his head and rubbed his horn against his palm.
In the afternoon, Ning Chu arrived at Enigma Forest by cart, but from far away, he saw some thick black smoke floating over the middle of the trees, it was like the forest was on fire.
Ning Chu was stunned, “What’s going on?”
Ning Chu hurriedly ran towards the direction of the black smoke after the beast cart dropped him off.
On the way, Third Cub wanted to get out of his arms and return to his adult form to fly with him, which would be faster.
Ning Chu reached out and held him down, “Wait a minute.”
He had a hunch that something wasn’t right, so he went over to see what was going on.
The direction of the black smoke was on the outskirts of the forest, and Ning Chu had just entered the forest when he saw a fire spreading in the distance.
He didn’t have time to react when the sound of people came from not far away.
Ning Chu quickly hid behind a dense bush and looked around in the dark.
These people’s outfits looked familiar, they the same group that had come last time.
The leader seemed to be a new one, with an unfamiliar voice, “Keep setting it off until it burns out.”
He said he left in a hurry, leaving a group of subordinates in the same place.
One of the subordinates couldn’t help but ask, “We are so blatantly setting fire, what if someone sees us?”
“What are you afraid of? The goons from the nearby mercenary corps don’t dare to come over when they hear that the fire dragon is here,” Another man answered carelessly, “Besides, the fire dragon is still here, isn’t it normal for it to accidentally set fire to the forest?”
Ning Chu hid behind a bush and listened, his eyes gradually turning cold.
These people set the mountain on fire and tried to put it all on Third Cub.
The vegetation in the forest was dense, and in just a moment, the fire in the distance spread rapidly, and many magical beasts, large and small, fled in all directions.
Enigma Forest wasn’t only filled with magical beasts, but also with dragons.
Ning Chu’s heart sank.
The dragons should be able to escape from the fire, but with so many dragons, if they were forced to leave Enigma Forest, where would they go to settle down?
The men were still talking, mouthing words like “red flame” and “force it to show itself”.
They were also aiming at the dragons in the forest, which would have nowhere to go and the magic dragon would probably appear, as it had done several times before.
Third Cub was getting mad, his paws clutching a few leaves, resisting the urge to go straight up and tear these people apart.
Ning Chu stroked him soothingly, noted the characteristics of the group’s attire, and lowered his voice, “Why don’t you go help them out?”
The current situation, at least half of the forest had already burned, it wouldn’t take long to spread to their side.
Do you want to burn it all? Since the pot has already been carried, it would be a loss not to do something about it.
A few people with magic wands in their hands were throwing fireballs into the forest when they suddenly heard a loud bang nearby.
Everyone’s eyes were drawn, but they saw nothing.
The woods were ablaze, and the already hot air became even more scorching at this point.
Smoke filled outward, and huge black shadows appeared along with the sound of tree trunks being trampled.
Someone looked back and fell to the ground in shock, “…A dragon, a fire dragon!”
They had searched the entire forest before setting fire to it, and the Scarlet Flame Dragon, which couldn’t be found at all, appeared at that moment, with the sky-rushing fire behind it, as if it had risen from hell as the god of Shura.
The Scarlet Flame Dragon raised its neck, and a furious dragon roar tore through the sky, as fire burst out from its mouth, aimed at the crowd.
Ning Chu sat at the top of Third Cub’s head holding the dragon’s horn, listening to the screams coming from below.
These people were obviously coming for Third Cub, and he was reluctant to let them go, but when it really came down to it, Ning Chu closed his eyes and dared not look down.
He leaned down and touched the dragon scales on Third Cub’s forehead, “Let’s go.”
The entire forest was on fire, and there was little hope of these people surviving.
In a few moments, someone else would notice the anomaly, and they had to leave as soon as possible.
Looking behind them at the Enigma Forest, Ning Chu sighed silently.
With the forest burned down, where would he go to earn money?
