I, The Dragon Overlord Chapter 39 - This Giant Dragon Speaks English!

The truth was that Hollywood blockbusters were deceptive. Film after film portrayed a rag-tag group of soldiers hacking their way through impressive monsters or mysterious aliens. Relying on nothing but their iron wills, bravery and skill, they would banish all attackers and save the world.

Total bullshit.

Aliens and monsters would never be as stupid as they were portrayed in the movies. With their intelligence and power, why would they fight humans on their terms?

The soldiers’ equipment was useless before the dragon’s natural defenses. Bullets ricocheted off, frag grenades bounced away and even a howitzer shell was stopped dead in its tracks. A crazy soldier even took out a knife to slash at the reptile but was rebuffed with a flick of its tail. He was promptly snapped in half.

Well, it was not as though their attacks did absolutely nothing. At the very least they managed to smudge Louie’s scales slightly. He might need to give them a good wiping to get them gleaming again.

Louie was unbelievable fast and unbelievable strong to the soldiers. All too soon the battle was over, and the soldiers’ dismembered corpses littered the forest floor.

After his evolution, Louie’s genes had become optimized. Even juvenile dragons from San Soliel would be unable to bridge the gaps in their physical abilities. Truly he was the Terran Civilization’s ‘ultimate strategic weapon’.

“P-professor…… what do we do…….”

A trembling student turned to their mentor. Among his peers, he was the only one who could still stand. All the others had collapsed moments ago and were lying on the ground crying and vomiting. The dragon’s vicious motions and the gruesome aftermath of its assault had left them paralyzed in terror.

Perhaps of all its victims, the three who had died initially had it best. Their deaths were instant and clean, unlike their mangled and dismembered compatriots.

A few unfortunate soldiers were split in two, their entrails decorating the forest floor right before their own horrified eyes. Their screams as the pain clouded their final moments rent the otherwise tranquil air of the Amazon.

None of the students had ever expected to witness such a wretched scene.

Of course, myths told of how only special weapons could harm dragons, but they never expected even modern weaponry to do absolutely nothing.

"I... I don't know what to do... I haven't studied how to survive against a dragon."
