The Hero and the Reunion (part 7)
The Demon Beast Record inscribes: “The dragons were the tyrants of the sky in the olden days . There were scarlet, ink black, and rock colored . They could ignite dragon fire, summon lightning, or shake mountains . Dragons were something even legendary heroes could not defeat . ”
The Record of the Rise and Fall of Middle Earth inscribes: “When the King of Lie[1 . This is a surname . Liè, not lie (lai) . ] was young, he drew his sword and slayed a red dragon, bathed in its blood, and ate its eyes raw . He could see all big happenings, dubbing himself the king of the wind, and called himself the ominous son . ”
At the present…
There was a gigantic red dragon, its massive body hovering amidst the lightning .
It only need to unfurl its wings and roar, and fireballs would rain down from the sky .
All the things touched by the fireballs were burning into ashes .
Demon race, Dragon kind .
Direct subordinates of the demon king .
For the Expedition Regiment, the biggest headache was the sky . Air defense had been the Expedition Force’s biggest weak point for almost forever .
On the ground, forming a solid line of defense worked, however it didn’t in the sky .
So the demon king would often exploit this loophole and send every kind of flying demon to sneak attack the humans from the back .
As the strength of the Expedition Force expanded, a hundred meter range for air defence was possible .
This range was quite considerable and a large portion of demon beasts were deterred by this .
Except for two .
One was the Sky kind, the other was the Dragon kind .
The Sky kind were humanoid demons with wings . The Dragon kind were monsters covered in scales . The former were small and quick, and the latter had formidable scaly armor .
“Guards!! Call the city defense!!”
“Save me aaaaahhhh–”
“Monster, it’s a monster!!”
Every kind of shrieks could be heard in all the streets .
It was no use .
The guards came rushing forward gripping their lances, but the dragon floating in the sky was an existence that left them in the dust .
But even if the dragon came down from the sky, they still would not be able to defeat it .
The red dragon looked up and bellowed .
A indescribably oppressive feeling came down from the sky, almost crushing everyone down .
Our Expedition Regiment once vanquished a dragon, but that was when many people were working together .
We used all kinds of control and weakening skills, and then a furious charge . Even so, we still lost a person .
Dragons are a very strong demon .
At this moment, the black clouds were pierced through with countless holes . A multitude of meteor-like fireballs came raining down from the sky .
There was one that was coming down near where Ailee and I were .
Ah ah .
I grabbed my spear on my back .
There were rivulets of water on the spear when i gripped it, making it feel bone-chilling cold .
“Your Highness Ailee!!”
The butler sprinted towards Ailee, shouting in warning .
“I’m fine . I’m fine, butler . ”
Ailee spoke .
I raised my head to watch the speeding fireball plunge without a care .
Not only did the rain water not extinguish the fireball, but also it produced a layer of blazing water vapor around the fireball due to the water evaporating .
If it was an ordinary person, they would definitely run .
Before this fireball fell, they would piss their pants in terror and escape, and they might be able to live .
But Ailee simply clasped her hands in front of her chest and stared at me .
I smiled .
Of course, how could I let you get injured .
It was hard for us to meet .
It’s like that, Ailee .
Wind wrapped and compressed around –
“Stop making me lose myself in exhilaration , you bastard demons!!”
I gripped the spear in my hands, and in an instant, I launched myself up in the sky .
The limestone bricks beneath my feet cracked, and I pushed off with a bang .
Gripping the bottom portion of my spear, I swept the entire body of the spear in front of me .
The large quantity of magic around the spear kept it isolated from the heat . With a pop, the entire fireball shattered into pieces that flew everywhere .
The cloak on my black was rustled by the turbulent wind, and my hood was lifted a sliver .
The dragon and I looked at each other for a second, and then another .
It wore the expression of a wild beast hunting for its prey, while I showed an expression of loathing .
Then I sped towards the ground, plunging . The instant I touched down on a rooftop, I hurriedly shot up again .
In just a few seconds, I had already reached the dragon’s side .
I still had my momentum, so I readied the spear in my hands .
Rapid Pierce Style · Crushing Armor .
I wrapped magic around the tip of the spear, thrusting my spear forward with my momentum .
At a closer distance, the dragon was even more terrifying . It was definitely over three stories tall and its wings when stretched were approximately forty meters .
I felt that my acrophobia had been triggered a bit due to the height i was at .
But compared to the height where Ailee had hugged me on the magic carpet, this was nothing .
The spear tip hit a chink in that vermillion scale armor, and let out a dazzling light .
Then, a scale flew off of the dragon .
I still can make it! Rapid Pierce–
I drew on my remaining strength to ready the spear and prepared to launch the second attack .
Then, I was struck dumb .
The armor that I had torn off still had another layer underneath .
Without anytime to think, the dragon’s tail slammed into my side and I was sent flying .
Because I had enough time to strengthen myself with magic, I didn’t receive any major wounds .
I crashed through three or four walls, until I managed to stop .
I had used almost a third of my magic . It was fine just to strengthen my speed . Strengthening my jumping strength to temporarily fly consumes a large quantity of magic . This was also the weak point of the Expedition Regiment’s defense .
In reality, the only person who could do the air defense for a hundred meters was Shen Zhen .
