Chapter 78 – To subdue a foolish, adorable, pampered spirit (5)
The mother dragon and the fire phoenix’s fight was at the peak of ferocity for the battle, but it still found the time to turn its head. Only to see its treasured little baby was actually laying in the arms of a person from the insignificant human race. Moreover, that human was even wielding a dagger and making motions towards the baby with it!
Oh, my god!
The mother dragon let out a ear-piercing sound that resonated loud and clear. The sound volume blasted straight through the clouds into the sky.
The mother dragon thought that it would be best to immediately release a dragon’s breath to burn Su Luo to a crisp, until there would almost be nothing left. When the transformation to ashes was complete, the residual would float away light as a feather.
However, Su Luo’s good luck rested on the dragon hostage she held in her hands as this placed her in an advantageous position. Therefore, none of the mother dragon’s long range attacks could be used.
The mother dragon was afraid that while wounding the rat, it would hit the fragile jade vase.
So, it refrained from shooting at the rat
for fear of breaking vases (1).
Suddenly, Su Luo saw the enormously large body of a divine dragon leaped in her direction. Such an awe-inspiring, dignified, powerful dragon jolted her heart and caused it to throb violently.
A startled expression passed through her eyes. It was too late to think clearly. She hugged the adorable little dragon close, turned around, and just ran.
This was definitely an unconscious action.
Run, run, run——
Su Luo knew that if the mother dragon was to catch up to her, any hope of getting dragon’s blood would be dashed.
Not only that, her life would cease to exist beneath the flying claws of the violently raging mother dragon.
The divine dragon’s bursts of dragon roar, shocked Su Luo, making her blood rush forth. The power of the dragon roar was deafening, like a magnificent army with thousands of men and horses (2) surging forward.
While the divine dragon was chasing after Su Luo to kill her, the fire phoenix behind was also chasing after the divine dragon. It was also because of the fire phoenix’s interference that Su Luo had a slight chance to escape.
It appeared like a blazing path that pierced the vast sky. Ten thousand thunder claps started to echo across the sky, its power to destroy also contained an endless murderous intent.
Su Luo while running also took
took the time to look back. She only saw the dragon’s malevolently cruel and vengeful expression. The light of bloodlust shining out from the dragon’s eyes. The soccer ball sized scales glittered like snow and frost as if each piece contained an inexhaustible strength.
“Damn it!” cursed Su Luo. Her expression changed slightly when she saw the distance between the divine dragon and herself shrinking.
The divine dragon had long ago become enraged. If she was captured by it then her end would absolutely be quite tragic.
Su Luo accelerated her pace. Her footsteps seemed to give birth to the wind. With powerful jumps, she rushed forward without looking back.
Su Luo’s heart was very agitated.
With her current speed, she was sure that halfway down the road, the dragon will overtake her.
How can she escape from it?
The divine dragon chased her until she had to go up to Heaven or down to Hades (3) fleeing and still couldn’t escape.
In the meanwhile, the little guy in her arms was also restless. It apparently felt that they
that they were playing a game. It stretched out its round, plump head and joined with its mother dragon in issuing dragon roars up here, down there (4).
Su Luo was frustrated to death. She half threatened and half menacingly patted its head. “Do not call out!”
The adorable little dragon did not seem to understand the meaning of Su Luo’s words. Its round, circular eyes were full of confusion. However, after seeing Su Luo’s cruel and sinister expression, it weakly withdrew its neck and silently contracted its little head back into Su Luo’s arm.
However, after a short while, the little dragon reverted to its old ways. The little head once again came out to explore.
“You’re not allowed to yell, go back!” Su Lu said while tapping its head. The little dragon once again did what it was told and very obediently pulled back into Su Luo’s arms.
As a result, every time the little dragon would spring out, Su Luo would flick it back in.
It would come out to explore and then once again be bounced back in.
Due to this back and forth, the adorable little dragon was under the impression that Su Luo was playing a game with it. Ha, ha, ha, it laughingly chortled while playing along happily.
Later on, Su Luo was too lazy to poke the little dragon so it became so it became upset. The little dragon started to wail awooo awoo loudly. An expression of being wronged appeared on its little face, its eyes were gleaming with tears.
The three black lines on Su Luo’s forehead once again appeared.
All she wanted was a little dragon’s blood. It should have been easy, right? In front she had an adorable little dragon stirring up trouble, behind she had a large divine dragon pursuing closely and unwilling to let go…
The divine dragon’s speed was like lightning. Wherever it goes all the grass and trees would fall to both sides, as if to open a path.
