Reborn as a DRAGON - Chapter 5
What is a man that will sacrifice his kind instead of fighting? Who would become a knight in an era where cowardice had become so normal? Indeed, man had less of a moral code than they, for at least a Dragon, would never do such a terrible thing to another dragon. —Records of an unknown Knight.
Green was a shy one, her eyes nervously darted around the cave when her gaze met Blacky’s she sheepishly buried her head into White’s side as she averted her gaze.
This caused Blacky to feel rather proud of himself as he haughtily raised his snout high. One glare from me however was enough to cause him to lower his head in obedience.
Golden boy who was captivated by White’s presence was now even more excited with Green who had just appeared. He constantly circled us, his eyes never quite leaving Green and White.
From the impression I was getting out of him, Golden boy was just curious about our two little sisters. Now that I think about it, I instinctively knew that White and Green were females while Blacky and Golden boy were males.
There was no distinctive feature that set us apart, besides Green being a tad smaller and much cuter than the rest. Perhaps that was the reason behind Golden boy’s curiosity?
As I was thinking about such useless thoughts, a sudden gust of wind suddenly appeared causing Golden boy and Blacky to be sent tumbling backward.
I was also caught off guard yet still managed to stay in place as I used my sharp claws to root myself to the cave rocks. White was pushed back a few steps before she as well managed to stabilize herself.
Green who was the smallest out of all of us raised her abnormally large wings almost instinctively. I watched in surprise as the strong wind raised her to the air. She was flying!
The air current appeared and disappeared abruptly, causing Green to land a distance away from us, yet as soon as she did she hurriedly scurried towards White and hid her head at her side.
Blacky and Golden boy made their way back to us, their gaze astonished as they glanced at the distance. ‘Hmmm?’ White who seemed always indifferent to everything had her head lowered in submission, her body emitting signals full of fear.
It was then that I suddenly realized that the direction they were all staring at was behind me. With my heart threatening to leap out of my chest, I slowly turned my head only to freeze in shock.
A giant eye golden eye was staring right at me. For a second I forgot how to breathe. The eye was easily as large as my entire body, my head unconsciously moved to look at the rest of the monster’s body.
It was a colossal adult female Dragon. Her scales were grey, she was also one-eyed, the other had a large scar running down to her upper jaw. A pair of mighty sharp horns that looked to be able to tear rocks like a hot knife through butter sprouted from her head.
She was simply too huge! Just her head was enough to cover my entire vision. Her one eye carefully examined me. I did not dare to make any sudden movements, though I was a dragon now, the monstrosity in front of me was capable of crushing me with a sneeze!
A sudden thought suddenly sprung in my mind. ‘Wait a minute, mom?’
Seemingly able to read my thoughts, the giant dragon suddenly moved her exceptionally large head and affectionately rubbed it against my body.
Though she tried to be gentle, the force from her action was enough to make me stumble backward. Seeing that the gentle giant Dragon had no intention of attacking, White was the first to regain her bearings as she crept closer to our mother.
Green sheepishly followed behind her not wanting to be left out. Blacky on the other hand seemed to hesitate for a bit as he also slowly followed behind, not daring to get too close.
‘Wait, wait, wait, that stupid muscle brain! Don’t do it!’ My mind suddenly went into overdrive as I turned my gaze towards my stupid little brother.
Golden boy’s eyes were wide in excitement, and I could already see the fighting intent burning within. The idiot was going to attack and it was too late to do anything to stop him.
I wasn’t afraid for our mother’s safety or his for that matter, I was more concerned about ours. If the muscle brain somehow manages to piss of the monstrosity that is our mother, I doubt we would get off unscathed.
My heart drooped as Golden boy made a mad dash towards mother looking more like a bull than a dignified Dragon. I hastily turned my gaze to the gentle giant to try and gauge out her reaction.
To my relief, mother seemed more amused than anything. She lazily brought her giant clawed palm down in front of her to block Golden boy’s suicidal charge.
Like a small moth rushing towards a flame, my stupid little brother met my mother’s palm headfirst and~
‘That’s it? Oh, he’s sleeping again.’ I thought.
The result was rather anticlimactic, his attack unsurprisingly did not cause even a scratch to mother’s clawed arm, quite the opposite, the force of his attack’s collision ended up knocking him unconscious.
Seeing that, White rolled her eyes while Green sheepishly watched the entire ordeal in amusement. Blacky simply looked at Golden boy’s unconscious body in disdain before turning his attention towards mother with awe-filled eyes.
Mother then laid her enormous body down causing the ground to shake as a cloud of dust rose from the impact, she then closed her eyes to rest without paying us any more heed.
Now that I got a better look at her, mother truly had a colossal body. I glanced at my tiny Dragon body in disappointment, ‘When would I get to be that big.’ I thought as I imagined myself soaring in the sky while raining fire on the lands below.
‘Wait! Fire?’ Don’t Dragons usually possess the ability to breathe fire? Thinking about that, my eyes shone with a determined glint eager to test my theory.
I glanced back at my mother who still had her eye closed, then at White who was peacefully snuggled next to her. Green was awkwardly moving her limbs around as she tried to get used to them. Blacky on the other hand was staring intently at mother with a worship-filled gaze, while Golden boy was still peacefully sleeping.
It was now or never!
