The Mighty Dragons Are Dead - chapter 40
After Liszt settled the wormgrass of the wheat insect, Glengyle, manager of Wheaton, told him, “My lord, there’s something that I don’t know if I should say.”
“Please speak.” Liszt’s eyes glittered, feeling that he would get the information on the invisible dragon now.
Glengyle, however, replied, “My lord, I found three weird grasses on the desolate land. They are big and tall. The chickens we keep like to eat their grasses.”
Liszt immediately realized that the clue was not about the invisible dragon, but the three wild corn. He immediately asked the manager to bring him to the corn that he had been looking forward to.
After he saw the wild corn, Liszt was baffled.
“Glengyle, how long has it been since you discovered the grasses?”
“And they have always been like this?”
“Yes, my lord.”
Liszt subconsciously touched the Red Blood Sword that he was carrying.
The magic of the ruby was stimulating and nurturing his combat aura all the time. It meant that he was cultivating all the time. With some magic medicines in the future, it was not unlikely for him to grow into a sky knight.
He observed the three wild corns.
The corn he saw did not have straight stems, with leaves, flowers, and cobs. Instead, there were quite a few stems with flowers. A few tiny toothpicks were where the cobs were supposed to be.
The toothpicks were sectioned, and each section was a grass seed.
Don’t tell me that they’re wild corn! This is more like wheat than corn! Liszt knew very well that the three grasses were his reward, but he could barely accept it.
What about big, shiny corncobs?
They’re grasses for livestock… Huh, I remember it now. Are the three wild corns Mexican corn grass?
Liszt remembered that Mexican corn grass, a high-quality and high-yielding grass, had been planted in his home world for pigs, cows, and goats.
That must be it. I don’t think there is really wild corn. Corn was developed after thousands of years of breeding.” Realizing that, he could now sigh and comfort himself. It’s a high-yielding crop after all. I didn’t lose anything.
Getting rid of his frustration, Liszt put on the smile of a noble again. “Glengyle, these are corn grasses that have a high yield and are popular among livestock. You need to take good care of them from now on. I need their seeds.”
“Yes, my lord! I’ll certainly look after the corn grasses and keep them away from the serfs and the livestock!”
“That’s good. I’ll inform Mr. Goltai. He’ll make further arrangements. You only need to carry out his orders.”
“Yes, my lord.”
Looking at the Mexican corn grass again, Liszt took a deep breath. Let’s go back!
The wormgrass of the wheat insect was settled well. The peanut insect, the clover insect, the tulip insect, and the wheat insect had all been properly planted, but the thorn insect and the millet insect were still waiting for appropriate locations.
In any case, elves were always taken care of.
On the way back, Liszt ran into Marcus, who was planning to meet him at the castle.
“Mr. Marcus, what’s up?”
“My lord, Goltai told me that you asked about the invisible dragon.”
“That’s right. Do you know anything about the invisible dragon?”
“I heard about it before,” said Marcus carefully. “I read about it from a half-torn knight novel, the name of which I don’t recall. I read it when I was very little.”
“Is that so? How was the invisible dragon described?” Liszt knew that the reward for the mission had come.
Marcus said, “According to the novel, there’s a fourth type of dragon other than gemstone dragons, metal dragons, and elemental dragons, named sacred dragons. The invisible dragon is one of the sacred dragons. They cannot be seen and bring infinite disasters wherever they go.”
“Disasters? Then why are they sacred dragons?”
“Because they can produce a very special gem.”
“A special gem? They should be categorized as gem dragons. Right, what is the special gem? Does it have any unique powers?”
“The gem is related to a legendary item. My lord, have you ever heard of space rings? They’re tiny rings that can contain a lot of things.”
Were there space rings in this world?
Liszt searched the memories of his former self, but found nothing. “No. Do you mean that space rings are real? Or rather, the gems from the invisible dragons can be used to build space rings?”
“I don’t know if space rings are real. Even if they are, they must be priceless treasures that only real nobles can have,” said Marcus. “The novel I read did state that the invisible dragons left infinite disasters as well as their gems, and that whoever picked up the gems would have a space ring.”
“Was there no other information about the invisible dragon in the book?”
“No. Also, I think it’s only make-believe. You know that most of the novels are written based on pure fantasy.” Marcus came to tell Liszt the information, but he obviously did not believe in the invisible dragon.
Liszt gave no response and simply continued, “What about the other sacred dragons?”
“I don’t know. The book was half-torn. The part I read only introduced the invisible dragon.”
After Marcus left, Liszt was still confused about the reward.
Was it simply the knowledge of the invisible dragon? Or did it mean there was an invisible dragon around for him to capture? Or did it mean that an invisible dragon would attack Flower Town soon? Of course, it could also mean that an invisible dragon would come to offer a space ring to him.
As he thought about it, the mist appeared before him again.
Mission accomplished. Reward: information about the invisible dragon.
After twisting and changing, a new mission was released. “Mission: Have the wild corns in Wheaton attracted your attention? A lord needs to consider why wild corn emerged in Wheaton. Perhaps, there are more wild corns around. Please find the source of the wild corn. Reward: new information about the invisible dragon.”
Liszt’s attention was quickly fixed on the new mission reward.
More information on the invisible dragon. What’s it about? How much information about the invisible dragon will I be given?
