I, The Dragon Overlord Chapter 40 - The Dragon’s Railgun

“Alpha Squad, Alpha squad, this is the helicopter support detachment. Come in when you hear me! Come in when you hear me!”

Three Apache helicopter gunships were heading to the location where the ground squad had signaled for help. The buzz of their propellers either chased or aroused the curiosity of the forest’s many denizens.

The Boeing AH-64 Apache, despite its shortcomings, was one of the world’s best in terms of integrated performance, having followed the United States of America’s forces across major battlefields.

One of the pilots listened carefully into his headset in hopes of making out any trace of response.

He checked the signal and confirmed that it was adequate. Even within the jungle, it should have been easy to communicate.

“FUCK, there’s no response. I don’t know what the hell happened down there... Increase flight speed and stay alert!”

“Yes, sir!”

The thick green forest canopy made it nearly impossible to make out what was happening on the ground. Despite their anxiety, they could only proceed towards the distress signal’s location.

Suddenly the officer saw a golden flash from the corner of his eyes. His instincts kicked in as he prepared for a missile strike, but the helicopter’s warning systems remained inert. In that case, it wasn’t a stinger missile or any kind of projectile. Just as he was about to look closer at the light’s location, he felt a jolt as the aircraft’s metal shell was struck by something.

“What the hell is going on!!!”

The next moment the helicopter was split in two, and both halves fell into the thick of the forest before detonating into burning wreckage.

Its passengers had not realized what happened, but those on the two other helicopters saw everything.

“WHAT THE FUCK IS THAT?!”

“I DON’T KNOW. IT LOOKS LIKE SOME KIND OF LIZARD!”

“DON’T BE STUPID!”

“WAS THE ALPHA SQUAD WIPED OUT BY THAT THING?!”

“SHUT UP AND FIRE ALREADY! DON’T LET IT GET CLOSE TO US!”

Flustered but organized, the soldiers readied their weapons to launch a barrage of ammunition into their target.

Louie had not presented himself directly to the helicopters at first. In his demigod dragon form, he would barely need to yawn before turning all three into scrap metal. But as a juvenile dragon - even a super one - he needed to act more prudently. Pitting his body in a direct confrontation with advanced weaponry would be dangerous and inefficient.
