Nuclear Dragon - Chapter 30
“Huh?” Andre looked at Shillong even more warily.
“Kid! Your ambition is not small! You actually want to buy an audio-visual stone from me, then steal my business? Dream! Go! Go! Don’t hinder me from doing business! “
In the end, Andre waved his giant claws vigorously, trying to drive Shillong away.
“I’ve said it before, I’m not going to grab business with you! With such an amazing thing as audio-visual stone, you never thought about making some other types of movies by yourself?” Shillong explained.
“Other…other…you mean, you can shoot some other type of entertainment apart from these scared videos about the origin of species?”
“Are there any storybooks? Let’s start by recording videos using these storybooks!”
“Starting from storybooks?” Andre’s eyes suddenly lit, he slapped his thigh with a look of excitement on his face.
He felt like he opened a door to a new world.
Since they can shoot this type of ‘video’, why not shoot the wonderful stories in those storybooks?
’If it were these famous and non-adult stories, the dragon management team won’t ban me from publicly showing them on dragon island.’
’I can make my business bigger, and more profitable!’
The Metal Dragon clan is a very united social group.
Similar to human beings and other intelligent races, the transactions between them also follow the way of exchanging goods and money.
There are many dragons doing business, selling, and buying things on this island.
Andre is a golden dragon with an extreme desire for money. A few years ago, while wandering in the human world, he discovered this audio-visual stone.
The ‘content’ recorded inside of them immediately attracted his attention.
He had heard that a powerful red dragon of the five-color evil dragon clan organized a group of his subordinates to shoot various adult films for sale, whether it’s humans, elves, orcs, or dwarfs…This red dragon became very rich because of this.
Andre’s sense of business immediately tingled upon hearing this. He bought many such audio-visual stones and returned to dragon island, showing them to his friends. Of course, not for free.
His friends are all teenage dragons, with a lot of energy and a keen interest in such adult videos. In the face of such an interesting thing, even their stingy nature has disappeared. After happily paying the money, a group of dragons watched these “Interesting” videos excitedly.
After watching these movies repeatedly, they became very excited. Everyone had a positive review of it, so Andre naturally asked them to invite their friends to watch it together next time.
The number of interested dragons continued to grow and so was the money he made. Just as Andre was happily making money, he was discovered by the management of the island.
As the righteous metal dragons, they naturally can’t allow such shameless things made by the five-color evil dragon clan to run rampant on dragon island, directly forbidding such things to appear.
Apart from some hidden ones, all of Andre’s audio-visual stones have been confiscated.
Since then, Andre can only secretly gather some of his friends from time to time to watch these movies together. However, this caused his income to dwindle to just a fraction of his previous income.
Such a thing is unbearable for the money-hungry Andre.
However, he has seen the dawn of the future. As long as it’s an indecent movie, it’s fine!
He will become rich!
The more Andre thought of it, the brighter his eyes became. He even started hating himself, why didn’t he think of this sooner!
A teenage dragon interrupted Andre’s fantasy, his tail constantly slapped the ground as he said with an impatient look.
“Andre! Quickly play the video! Everyone is waiting! Are you planning to show us the next video or not? If not, then just say it, we will leave!”
Andre was awakened by the sudden voice. After laughing awkwardly, he quickly turned on the audio-visual stone and placed it in front of the dragon group to appreciate.
The teenage dragons immediately concentrated on the video. They looked at it without blinking their eyes.
Andre took Shillong and Arman to the side, he is very interested in Shillong now! He wants to discuss their money-making plan together!
“Come on! Tell me more about it!” Andre said excitedly.
“Do you have any human world storybooks? If so, take them out, I want to have a look.”
Andre immediately took out some books from his space ring and placed them on Arman’s back for Shillong to read.
[My Noble Lady]
[His Royal Highness Fell in Love with Me]
[The Wandering knight]
Shillong quickly turned the pages of each of these books. His dynamic vision and memory are extremely powerful, far beyond the limits of human beings.
It might not even be appropriate to call it reading as he quickly turned the pages of each book, rarely stopping for even 1 second on each page, but despite that, he remembered every single word on each page of these books.
This shocking scene caused Andre to raise his eyebrows.
“Oh-ho! Young dragon! can you read books like that?”
Andre was shocked and skeptical at Shillong’s reading speed, but Shillong didn’t explain anything to him.
Soon after, Shillong’s reading session was over.
He dropped the books on Arman’s back, then gently stroked his chin with a pensive look. The serious and thoughtful look was very adorable on his childish, tender face.
After reading all of these storybooks, Shillong discovered that most of them are romance books!
The starting point is almost always ‘boy meets girl’!
This is not the most critical! The most important point is that the protagonist of all these books are males!
What the hell is a female-targeted romance story where the protagonist is a male and it’s all from his point of view!
This is trash!
For example, [Gray Boy]
It’s a story about a boy whose parents died when he was a child and was forced to live with his relatives. He was bullied every day and had a miserable life!
Until one day, a local aristocratic lady was about to get married, but this aristocratic lady was unwilling to marry other aristocrats. Mostly because the aristocracy is too abusive and the relationship is purely that of interest, so she hosted a competition for her hand in her territory.
Naturally, the protagonist chose to participate in this competition.
On the way to the competition ground, the young protagonist met a traveling mage. The mage tested the protagonist’s temperament and found that he was a good person despite the environment he grew in, so he helped the protagonist realize his wishes and gain the favor of the noble lady. Finally, the two of them got married.
There is also [Snow Boy], it’s a story about a boy that is as handsome as an elf, living in a forest with seven short girls as his neighbors. As the story progresses, they meet a mage who is jealous of the male protagonist’s handsome face, cursing him and making him fall unconscious. The 7 short girls finally informed a passing female knight that at that time.
After splitting the evil mage into pieces, the female knight saved the handsome boy, then they lived happily ever after.
The more Shillong looked at these two stories, the more had a feeling of deja vu. Why do these two stories look like copies of Cinderella and Snow White!
Others are basically stories about an ordinary man at the bottom of society who lust for a woman at the top of society. Each with a different but similar ending.
This may be related to the structure of human society in this world.
Shillong felt that only Dragon Quest is normal.
It’s a story about a young handsome knight killing the evil dragon and saving the princess.
“Have you read all these stories?” Shillong said while rubbing his brows.
“Of course! These are the hottest and most popular stories in the human world! In order to study humans, I naturally read them many times!” Andre said with a confident look.
“What do you think of them?”
“Umm~ I don’t like them very much. After all, they are mostly about humans. As a glorious golden dragon, I don’t care about human stories at all.” Andre said with a look of caution.
“Do you feel it’s boring because you don’t feel a sense of substitution? You feel that it has nothing to do with you?”
“Yes! That’s why!” Andre slapped his thigh with a look of realization on his face.
He was wondering before, why doesn’t he care or appreciate the masterpieces that are so praised in the human world, but it turned out to be for this reason!
’This young dragon really has some skills!’
“If we change the story for a bit. For example, the protagonist of Dragon Quest becomes a metal dragon traveling the continent. The wizard who helped the gray boy becomes a metal dragon. We can even add a new character to some stories. For example, Snow Boy. The female knight couldn’t defeat the wizard. When she is in despair, she encounters a metal dragon traveling through the mainland. The metal dragon helps her defeat the mage…”
Shillong slightly modified all of the previous stories, adding or changing a character from a human to a righteous metal dragon.
Andre’s pair of giant eyes began brighter and brighter the more he heard.
