    Should be, considering it's the same as the novel's title.


    Careful with the spoilers, even small ones - RWX.

    Should also be that there's a "spoiler" function in the forum.

    I'm waiting with baited breath for the next update. Seems a slower pace (so far) compared to Stellar Transformations, though ST falters in some places I feel.

    Book 1, Chapter 7 Coiling Dragon Ring (part 2)

    That black ring had rolled forward, landing precisely in front of the doorway.

    When Linley had strode forward by three steps, reaching the doorway, he came to a sudden halt, because he could clearly feel that he had stepped on something hard.

    Just now, I searched the ground and didnt see a single rock. This must have come from the shattered drawers. Thinking about the collapsed drawers, Linley couldnt help but feel angry, and he viciously stomped on the piece of shattered wood beneath his feet.

    Based on Linleys thinking, if it was a piece of shattered wood, it should be stomped into fragments. But in reality

    Whoah, its hard! Whats under my foot? Linley felt that the item underneath his foot was extraordinarily tough, and immediately stepped aside to take a closer look.

    He saw a jet-black object in the shape of a ring lying peacefully on the ground. It was covered by a layer of dust, and was not at all catching to the eye.

    Oh, a ring? Linleys eyes were bandit-sharp. He happily plucked the ring up, then used his filthy sleeves to give the black ring a vigorous rub-down. Only then could Linley make out what this item really looked like.

    This black ring was made of a material that seemed to have properties of both wood and stone. On the body of the ring, there was a very faint carving of an indistinct object as well

    Earthworm? Linley suspiciously looked at the carving on the ring.

    At first glance, Linley felt that the sinuous carving on the ring seemed to be that of an earthworm.

    Linley laughed to himself, The carving skill for this ring is really terrible. I bet even an average carver could make something more attractive. Alas, what a waste. This black ring doesnt even have a single diamond on it, much less any valuable magic crystals.

    Most rings were adorned with either diamonds or magic crystals.

    Unfortunately, this black ring seemed to have been made out of a material that had properties of both wood and stone. Not even the shadow of a gemstone could be seen. Clearly, it was worthless.

    But for some reason, upon seeing the ring, Linley immediately felt that he had taken a liking to it. He suspected that it was most likely because this was the only thing he had discovered after spending a prodigious amount of effort in searching the manor.

    Hm, this ring is really thick. Theres no way to wear it on my finger without it slipping off. Ill string it through with silk and wear it around my neck. Linleys eyes brightened.

    The eight-year old Linleys hands, after all, were much smaller than the hands of an adult. There was no way he could wear the ring on his fingers.

    Now, what name should I choose for this black ring? Earthworm Ring? No way, that sounds terrible. Linley mumbled for a few moments, then his eyes lit up. Haha, that sinuous object can also be considered a dragon, right? A dragon curled around the ringthen lets call it, the Coiling Dragon Ring! Although in his heat, Linley felt like the carving looked more like an earthworm, but he still chose the name Coiling Dragon Ring for it.

    Coiling Dragon Ring! Lifting up the dark, unadorned ring, Linley felt exceptionally pleased.

    Wait, crap! Its almost time for training!

    Linley suddenly remembered. He frantically stared at his filthy clothes, covered in dust and grime. He looked like a beggar. Oh no Linley had no time to think. He immediately ran out of the ancient courtyard and charged straight for the washroom.

    The sound of rushing water.

    Linley dumped water over himself. His skin was bright and vigorous, and muscular lines were already beginning to develop. This was the result of Linleys training. Underneath the rushing water flow, the dust was quickly washed away.

    Using the least amount of time possible, Linley washed himself clean, then hurriedly put on his training clothes.

    String, string Linley hurriedly looked about for a thread on which he could hang the Coiling Dragon Ring. Suddenly, Linleys gaze fell on a ruined old washcloth. His eyes lit up, and he immediately pulled a string out from within the washcloth.

    Although the washcloth was very ordinary, it was very sturdy and durable. The string, too, would be very resilient.

    He quickly strung on the Coiling Dragon Ring, then immediately wore his makeshift necklace.

    Im gonna be late. This is my first time being late! Linley bolted out like a roaring flame. As he ran, he tucked the Coiling Dragon Ring into his clothes. Feeling the coolness of the ring against his chest, Linley couldnt help but feel happy.

    In exchange for being late, he gained the Coiling Dragon Ring.

    Linley felt very happy.

    In a flash, Linley rushed out of the Baruch clan manor, and then immediately ran towards the empty training ground east of Wushan town. By this time, most of the commoners had already returned home, leaving the streets empty, but as they saw Linley run, they were able to guess the reason.

    Young master Linley, careful, dont hurt yourself!

    Master Hillman is extremely rigorous. Im afraid young master Linley is going to be punished.

    ..

    The kindness which the Baruch clan had showed the commoners caused them to also be filled with love and goodwill towards Linley.

    How will Uncle Hillman punish me? Even as he hurriedly rushed forward, Linley was still thinking about this question. At this point, Linley had no time to chat or pay respects to any of the uncles or aunties nearby. In a short period of time, Linley arrived at the training field of Wushan town.

    By this time, all three squads had already lined up. Hillman was speaking, but upon hearing Linleys footsteps, Hillmans cold gaze couldnt help but shoot towards him.

    Linley ran towards the training squads. Taking position next to the squads, he nervously awaited Hillmans instructions.

    Todays training exercises will be doubled for you. Return to your team! Hillman calmly said.

    Yes sir! Linley raised his head high and said in a bright voice.

    The youngsters nearby couldnt help but stick out their tongues. He was just late by a short amount of time, but was punished with double duty training. Today, Linley probably wouldnt have any time to go home and eat dinner.

    Just as Linley began jogging towards his usual position in the team, suddenly

    THUD! The entire earth seemed to tremble slightly, but with regularity. It was as though a giant creature was walking on the earth, causing it to tremble with each step.

    East. It came from the east. Linley immediately discerned the direction.

    Not just Linley. Hillman, Roger, and Lorry all turned towards the east, their expressions growing solemn. The vibrations were growing stronger and clearer. All of the youths present could clearly feel that the regular vibrations were coming from an enormous creature headed their way.

    Each of the thunderous footsteps seemed to caused a vibration powerful enough to shake Linleys heart.

    What giant creature was causing this?

    Linley widened his eyes and stared east

    CHAPTER END

    Shit's about to get real!

    Book 1, Chapter 8 Magical Beast Velocidragon!

    The giant creature that caused the earth to shake finally revealed itself.

    Upon seeing this enormous creature, Linley and the rest of the children were scared silly. Hillman, Roger and Lorrys reaction speeds were very quick; they immediately stood in front of the group of kids and carefully watched the enormous creature.

    A magical beast of the seventh rank. Velocidragon*! Hillmans facial expression contorted, while Lorry and Roger, by his side, felt their legs grow weak.

    So bi, bi, big! Is, is this a legendary magical beast? Linley was totally stunned.

    Since he was born, the largest creature which Linley had ever seen was the warhorses that sometimes passed by Wushan township. Those large, powerful horses were 1.8 meters tall. But in front of this giant creature, they seemed like nothing more than a babe in front of a giant. The difference was truly astounding.

    This creature was easily two stories high and at least twenty or thirty meters long.

    Magical Beast Velocidragon!

    The Velocidragons entire body was covered by huge, fire-red scales, each scale glittering with the reflected cold, golden light. The scales alone were stunning and frightening to behold. The Velocidragons four scale-covered long legs were even more terrifying in their thickness. Two fully grown men would barely be able to surround them with their arms. The flame-red Velocidragon was entirely crimson in color, with the exception of its cold, deadly looking black claws.

    The Velocidragons long, scale covered tail made up over half of its total body length. Like a whip, it swept across the ground. Each time it struck the ground, a deep thud could be heard emanating from below.

    Grrr

    With a low-throated growl, white steam erupted from the nostrils of the Velocidragon, carrying with it the stench of sulfur. Those diamond-like eyes, nearly the size of a lantern, were also, strangely enough, red as well. The huge head of the Velocidragon turned towards Linley and the children. Its cold gaze terrified all of the children, freezing them in their tracks.

    Tchhh. Tchhh. The Velocidragons mouth tensed, revealing two rows of enormous, saw-like teeth. Each teeth was ivory white, and the sight of them caused everyones hearts to grow cold. No one dared to question its sharpness.

    Linley felt as though his heart had stopped beating. Right now, it seemed as though all sound had faded away.

    Too terrifying. Is there anyone who can possibly defeat such a creature? Linley was scared stiff.

    Just from looking at this huge magical beast, Linley felt as though its power was irresistible. Linley believed that with but a swipe of its enormous tail, most likely even the sturdiest stones of the houses of Wushan town would be disintegrated.

    Is this Wushan town? Suddenly, a cold voice emanated from on top of the Velocidragon.

    All of the terrified children looked up, astonished. Upon the Velocidragons enormous, scaly back, a mysterious man wearing violet robes was sitting cross-legged. The Velocidragon was simply too huge in size, and its back was extremely broad. There was more than enough space for someone to stand, sit, or even roll around.

    Lord Magus, this is indeed Wushan town. Is there anything we can help you with, Lord Magus? Hillmans voice rang out.

    Upon hearing Hillmans voice, everyone seemed to find their bearings again, and recovered from the state of stunned terror. But everyone present, including Roger and Lorry, didnt dare make a single sound. They all stood behind Hillman and fearfully looked at the terrifying Velocidragon and the mysterious, violet robed magus.

    Wushan town. Looks like I didnt get lost. The violet-robed man said in a low voice.

    And then the mysterious, violet-robed man didnt say anything else. After gazing at Linley and the rest of the group with its cold eyes, the Velocidragon continued forward, two more lines of smoke appearing from its nostrils. Seeing the Velocidragon go in the direction of the township, the expression on Hillmans face changed.

    Everyone, stay here. After he spoke, Hillman immediately chased after the departing Velocidragon.

    Uncle Lorry, what is that? Is that a magical beast? Linley was the first to ask.

    Lorry cleared his throat, a look of terror still in his eyes. But he still nodded. Yes, it is. But its a very powerful one, a magical beast of the seventh rank. A Velocidragon!

    Velocidragon?

    Linley memorized the word, forever etching it in his mind.

    The Velocidragons huge body, hard scales, sharp claws, and powerful tail served to create a terrifying appearance. Linley believed.a single Velocidragon could most likely annihilate the entire Wushan township.

    The defensive power of the Velocidragons scales is astonishing, and its attack power is terrifying as well. In addition, it is proficient in destructive fire magic! Lorrys heart was filled with fear as he explained to Linley and the others. If faced with a terrifying magical beast such as the Velocidragon, most likely even a platoon of a thousand soldiers would be wiped out, unless it had a number of sixth or seventh ranked warriors and magi who could unite to penetrate the Velocidragons scales.

    Linleys heart trembled.

    Even a platoon of a thousand soldiers would be wiped out?

    However, the most terrifying thing is not the Velocidragonit is the mysterious violet-robed man. Lorry took two stabilizing breaths, calming his agitated heart.

    By his side, Roger nodded as well. Right. In order to subdue a Velocidragon, one must force the Velocidragon to willingly submit to being a servant. In other wordsthe violet-robed man must be significantly more powerful than the Velocidragon. Based on his clothing, he should be a magus.

    At least a magus of the seventh rank. Perhaps even a magus of the eighth rank! Rogers fists couldnt help but tremble as well. I never imagined such an important individual would come to our home.

    Linley could also feel the fear which was in the hearts of Roger and Lorry.

    Velocidragon, a magical beast of the seventh rank. And a mysterious magus whose power dwarfed that of the Velocidragon? This definitely was enough to cause terror.

    The magus was even more powerful than the Velocidragon? Linley found this somewhat hard to believe.

    The Velocidragons huge body, hard scales, sharp claws, and powerful tailall seemed to dwarf that small human figure of the magus.

    Roaaar!

    Suddenly, an angry roar erupted from the middle of the township.

    Crap! Lorry and Roger were stunned. Linley and the other children grew worried as well. Was the Velocidragons angry roar caused by Uncle Hillman, or by Wushan township? Nobody knew.

    All of you, stay here. Lorry and Roger, although terrified, still raced towards the center of the town.

    Linley gritted his teeth. Uncle Hillman! Linley was also worried for Uncle Hillman, as well as the citizens of Wushan town. He also ran in that direction. At this moment, Lorry and Roger were both panic-stricken at the thought of the Velocidragon, and didnt notice Linley following behind them.

    In but a few moments, they arrived in the middle of the town. Hillman was standing far away, watching.

    Why did you come? Hillman reprimanded in a severe tone.

    But upon seeing Linley follow behind Lorry and Roger, Hillman frowned even further. Linley, its far too dangerous here. Go back immediately. Only now did Lorry and Roger notice Linley had followed them.

    Linley, why did you Lorry and Roger didnt know what to say.

    Uncle Hillman, Im not going back. Linley wasnt willing to return.

    Hillman helplessly shook his head. He knew how stubborn Linley could be, and how hard it was to force him to change his mind. Fine. Then stay behind me, do not go too far. As long as you stay next to me, I am confident that I can protect you.

    Thank you, Uncle Hillman. I definitely wont run around. Linley was overjoyed.

    At this point in time, Hillmans group was roughly a hundred meters away from the Velocidragon. They quietly watched the events in the center of town unfold. In front of the huge Velocidragon, a group of youngsters could be seen. Four men, three women.

    CHAPTER END

    *In Chinese, the term for this creature was 迅猛龙, literally fast vicious dragon, but normally the term is used to refer to the velociraptor dinosaur. But since velociraptors are actually very small (the size of a dog), and since in this world these creatures are classified as dragon type creatures (and are bigger than a T-rex), with reference to dragon claws, etc., I took the artistic liberty of translating 迅猛龙 as Velocidragon.
