ITDO - Chapter 48 - Let Me Bring More Surprises to Earth!
Professor Johnson awoke from a trance.
Despite looking no different from before, those familiar with him would likely notice that he had different mannerisms compared to the past. This was because though he was Professor Johnson, he also wasn’t. Louie had used the Dominate Human spell to once again take over his body.
Louie had initially spared the professor and his students so that he could use them to spread the news of his existence to the world and alert other countries. This way, the American government would have to expend effort in dealing with the diplomatic aftermath of his actions. In the meantime, they would be severely limited in their means of finding and confronting him.
Step by step he managed to achieve all of his aims.
Of course, he still didn’t let his guard down. After all, he had his final trump card, which was the ability to escape to San Soliel. If things ever got bad on Earth, he’d simply head there and vice versa. In the meantime, however, he could risk exposing himself.
“Right. Now it’s time to find food.”
Professor Johnson murmured.
Since Louie had once been human, he faced no difficulties in acclimating to the new body. If he had been born a dragon then he would likely be clumsy with it at first.
The spell, Dominate Human, would leave a seed on the body of the target if cast successfully for the first time. The next time the caster wished to control the target, they could easily use the spell once again with the seed as an anchor.
Given that Earthlings had almost no resistance to spells, Louie could manipulate a person for up to several hours.
“I didn’t think the spell could work even at such a distance. Magic is quite potent it seems.”
Louie sighed before manipulating the professor’s body to open the computer.
There were many restrictions to the spell, Dominate Human. For example, it could only dominate a single person and not a group. Additionally, the range of the spell’s initial casting was quite small. Finally, once the caster was in control of the target, they could not obtain the target’s memories and habits. Everything was up to the caster’s actions. And if they couldn’t pull a good enough impression of the host, they’d likely be discovered soon. This was why the spell was relatively unpopular.
If the Crown of Dominance did not have this spell, Louie might not have bothered to learn it.
Perhaps if the spell had fewer limitations Louie would already have taken over the President of the United States of America. It was a shame though, that he was not very familiar with his mannerisms and speech patterns. Even if he managed to get close to the president and take control of him, he’d likely fail to provide a convincing impression.
Furthermore, as powerful as presidents could be, they still had limits. Congress would easily veto anything that seemed too out there. Unless he could take over everyone it would be a pointless task. But if he was powerful enough to do something on that scale, what would even be the point? He might as well just force them instead.
Therefore, it was important to power up.
Pondering, Louie began to collate the resources he needed.
The professor’s body was currently in his clean and tidy home. After the incident in the Amazon jungle, he had been questioned by the U.S. military for half a day, but Louie had cleverly delayed the video’s release to avoid catching their attention. The U.S. government could not convict the professor. Moreover, the professor was very knowledgeable and had many connections. The U.S. government did not dare go too far and finally released him.
In the end, the professor was confused and did not know what he did, because he had no memory of when he was controlled.
After poking around the house, Louie made himself a cup of coffee. He had been a dragon for a while, causing him to feel nostalgia to be back in a human’s body.
Louie first searched the internet and found out that the video had exploded out of proportion. People all over the world were discussing the existence of dragons. They were even launching demonstrations to have the U.S. government reveal more information about it. Unfortunately for them, the US government paid little attention to them, and simply dismissed the video as a clever hoax.
Sneering, Louie ignored the US government’s attempts. As more supernatural events occurred he wanted to see how they’d keep covering things up.
“I wonder how the scientists are going to react”
Louie clicked his tongue and gloated. He was happy to create trouble.
Even Louie himself could not believe how fast he was adapting to his new identity. Although he still had some human habits and thoughts, he had also accepted a dragon’s way of thinking. Now, he was already considering himself as a real dragon, the predator at the top of the food chain.
He was no longer a weak human with a short lifespan.
But there had been merit to having the intelligence of a human. Now, he had both intelligence and power.
“Found it! This person truly deserved to be called a Stanford professor. His network is really rich. Fortunately, I don’t need to meet with anyone. As long as I make a call with the professor’s voice, no one would probably be able to suspect that he was not himself.”
Louie gleefully looked at the professor’s phonebook, which recorded the numbers of many people.
Thanks to modern smartphones, facial recognition, and fingerprint detection, Louie was able to open the professor’s phone.
“Alright! Shall we unleash a few more surprises?”
