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 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 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 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 .
