The Amber Sword - v4c107




Aloz had not left for long when she was called back by Brendel for no other reason than they still had to get information from that fat Dragon, Shitah. But unfortunately, this timid young Dragon would only agree to meet Aloz and no one else, so Brendel had to ask a little female Dragon to drag Shitah out of his storage room.
 
But after this guy was dragged out, the first question asked immediately caught Brendel by surprise.
 
"What?! You’re telling me that you swapped the Heart of the Dragon with a star-shaped stone and let Arreck take it?! Brendel looked dumbfoundedly at the nosebleeding fatty in front of him, and he felt lost.
 
The little fat Dragon nodded with an innocent look as if what they gave away was not a star-shaped stone but a random pebble fished up from the riverbank.
 
"Despicable and cunning." He put a definite word in his mind, but still felt that it was not enough and he added, “It was so insidious and shameless.”
 
"What is the star-shaped stone?" Both Veronica and Brendel had the oddest expressions on their faces, they knew there must be something wrong with this so-called star-shaped stone, so she tried recalling but could not think of any semblance of relevant information.
 
She thought that it must be a type of gemstone. It was true that among the variety of gemstones, there was a type called the star-shaped sapphires, but that was just a general luxury item that did not seem to have much connection to the current situation. Besides, Veronica did not think Arreck would recognize a star-shaped sapphire as a Heart of the Dragon, even if his brain had been swept by a Dragon’s tail.
 
"Have you heard of the Elemental Frontier?" Brendel asked with an odd look on his face.
 
"I know that the Elemental Frontier is the frontier of Vaunte, and Lord Marsha descended the Code on the Sea of Magic to form a solid world. The four Elemental Worlds hold down the four directions of Vaunte, but scholars generally believe that these four directions are not in the spatial sense and that the part of the Elemental Frontier visible to the naked eye should be above the sky, right?" Shido replied in a little voice.
 
"Good answer. The world generally believes that the elemental frontier is an abstract, or theological concept, but in fact, it is real, and there are special creatures living. It is said that the giant whales of the heavenly realm as huge as mountains swim on the Elemental Frontier, but they can only be seen on the day of March Common Yao."
 
Brendel paused for a moment as if he was lagging, he felt that this matter was too outrageous or simply unbelievable, "And the star-shaped stone, is actually a more euphemistic name for it, its scientific name, formally speaking, I think it should be called the excrement of the Heavenly Whale."
 
"Huh?"
 
The Kirrlutz noble officers present felt that they simply saw or heard all the bizarre and odd things in their lives today. Some could not help but ask, "Lord, you mean this......giant Dragon ...... used a piece of Heavenly Whale excrement to trick Arreck?"
 
This was really a playful statement. The crowd could not help but roar with laughter.
 
But Brendel looked at Shitah who was sitting at the side. If it was that simple, then, of course, it would be counted as a fairly funny anecdote, but he knew more. He coughed and continued, "In fact, there is much more than that, the star-shaped stone...... although excrement, however, it is safe to say that it is worth a lot of money, but ...... common people can not use it. "
 
"So, Brendel, what exactly is going on?" Veronica frowned suspiciously and asked with caution.
 
"The Heavenly Whale feeds on energy on the Elemental Frontier, and its excrement is actually a residue of refuted energy ...... it’s just that the heavenly whale eats a lot, to the extent that the amount it eats every day is enough magic power to sustain the Buga's floating city for a hundred years. Because it is at the edge of the Sea of Magic, that's why there is an endless supply of magic power for it to draw from ......" Brendel stopped and asked rhetorically, "Do you know what it means the more mottled the magic power is?"
 
On the side, Ciel’s complexion suddenly changed, "Wait, it can't be?" He muttered a reply.
 
"You guessed it right, the star-shaped stone...... is an unstable, super-sized bomb that can explode at any time. Most star-shaped stones crash when they enter the Law of Tiamat. I don't know where Shitah got this stuff from, but I do know that Arreck is probably about to have some serious bad luck if he's planning to put that thing on that precious portal of his......" Brendel baffled.
 
Veronica was also slightly stunned, "How powerful is it?"
 
Brendel looked back at her. He was tempted to ask the female chief if she knew of a weapon called a thermonuclear weapon, but obviously, she would have never heard of it. He thought for a moment and described, "Might be enough to move Lusitar from this end to that end, making it a completely flat ground."
 
"You're kidding right?" Veronica blurted out. Behind her, the noble officers of Kirrlutz sat frozen as if they had seen a ghost and were petrified for a moment.
 
 
"No, what I said is true. I don't know how this thing appeared in Vaunte. Theoretically, it should have ceased to exist before entering this world." Brendel muttered. Speaking of which he suddenly thought of something. He subconsciously turned back to see the hunter girl Peya’s face immediately turned pale, "My brother ......"
 
"We have to find a way to stop them." Veronica also immediately reacted, "Marsha high above, this thing will completely wipe out the Stained Frost Forest Labyrinth...... Brendel, the seal in the center of the Stained Frost Forest Labyrinth......"
 
Brendel nodded. In fact, he had already thought of this. He could not help but glare harshly at Shitah, Does this guy not get the situation? Once this thing explodes, not only them but even this damn Dragon himself will turn into ashes.
 
They could not escape from this place in such a short time.
 
"Those guys who snooped around my treasures certainly deserve this." Shitah pouted and replied with a defiant face. Of course, those treasures he mentioned were the several caves of food he had stored. Lord Marsha, this frost young Dragon was not lying. Whoever dared to touch his food, he would rather destroy the world in revenge.
 
Blowing up a frosty forest, what about that?
 
"Aren't you the guardian here?" Shido asked, staring at the little fatty with some incredulity.
 
Shitah, with a disdainful face, replied, "Hmph. If it was not for him promising me good food every day I would not have agreed, but the food he gave was not good at all. Don't he dare think that I didn't know he created the food by magic. The food... so annoying, I didn't want them since long ago already. The funny thing is that those idiots actually thought they could lure me out by going to the Holy Cathedral of the Hibernator. What a bunch of idiots, I might as well take a nap if I had that time... Owwww!"
 
Before he could finish his sentence, he received a heavy blow to the head. Aloz glared at him and slapped him on the back of the head, almost sending the little fat boy under the ice, "You idiot, have you got no shame? You sold yourself for a little food and became a watchdog for others?" She was so disappointed that she could not help but loudly rebuked, "Also, you actually handed over such a fun thing casually, what's wrong with throwing out that crappy Heart of the Dragon then?" 
 
"Fun stuff?"
 
"Fun stuff......"
 
"Fun stuff......?"
 
Brendel, Shido, Veronica had the same emerging thought, How is this fun stuff? This was something that would kill, okay, you two have not figured out what the problem is. Brendel suddenly felt his legs weakened. He felt that giving the leadership of the topic to this little female Dragon was a wrong choice, he hurriedly interrupted the conversation, "Wait, let's not talk about this first."
 
"I don't know," Shitah answered cleanly, so much so that one could tell at a glance that the fat guy was lying.
 
But this time Brendel was not going to let Aloz come, he called instead, "Haruz, you come here."

The young prince, with a bewildered face, walked over holding the Lion's Fang and asked with some confusion, "Teacher, what are your orders?"
 
"You go over and convince him to tell us where Arreck is going." Brendel pointed at Shitah and said. "Me?" The young prince did not understand, "I...can I?"
 
"Of course, rest assured, in just a moment he will listen to you like a dog, but you remember, don't give him all you have, don't sell yourself." Brendel replied coldly.
 
Give him? Give him what? The little prince blushed, but the teacher's words could not be disobeyed so he walked over stiffly. When Shitah saw Haruz, his eyes lit up slightly, but soon showed a disappointed look and said loudly, "What is this? This is a man, I will not be interested in such a guy. Quickly, find me a little girl to this big master, maybe I will promise to tell you the news you want to know-"
 
It was lucky for him that Brendel did not immediately pull out the Halran Gaia and cut the perverted and damned Dragon. He took a soft breath, told himself to calm down. After all, the other party was a Dragon, and even it was a young Dragon, it was not someone he could deal with. 
 
But this guy was really bad to a certain level. What on earth was he thinking about?
 
Brendel finally managed to calm down when he saw Shitah's gaze suddenly became motionless, to be exact, his eyes were fixed on Haruz.
 
Then everyone as if this guy's vision started to blur and from the corners of his mouth, saliva was dripping like a line of crystals.
 
At that moment, everyone seemed to have been petrified except for Brendel. Whether it was the Kirrlutz nobles, Brendel's entourage of knights, Shido, and even Veronica was frozen for a while.
 
What is this situation?
 
The young prince, who was the one involved, was startled and shouted, "You... what are you trying to do?"
 
And as if Shitah heard nothing, he lunged at Haruz at once.
 
At that moment, Aloz could not help but look back intolerantly, Brendel laughing in his mind. Exactly as how those guys mentioned.  

"Obviously still a child." He heard Haruz scream, but that was what he thought.
