Whether You Call Me a Guardian Dragon or Not, I'm Going to Sleep – Chapter 10: Age of Dragons (5)

Chapter 10: Age of Dragons (5)

The dinosaurs that fully accepted Thetis's scales and changed their appearance... No, it would be more fitting to call them Blue Dragons now.

Anyway, the Blue Dragons, quite miraculously.

"Thank you for bestowing your scales upon us. Mother."

It seemed that they had developed intelligence as they transformed.


"Isn't that what you call the one who has given you scales?"

At that, Thetis looked at me.

Well, considering Thetis and the others call me mother, it's not incorrect.


"Calling me mother... means you should call mother, grandmother...?"

"Is that what you were worried about?"

"But! Mother is beautiful! In the stories you've told, grandmothers are old and wrinkled, their beauty faded. But our mother's scales shine beautifully!"

"What are you talking about."

What does beauty have to do with dragons in the first place? The standard of beauty is ambiguous anyway.

"I don't mind. Call me whatever you like."

"Yes! Mother!"

Whether those Blue Dragons call me grandmother or not, what does it matter?

The important thing is that a new intelligent being has been born into this world because they received the scales.

"It seems giving out the scales turned out better than I thought, so I'll be on my way now."

I followed them in case of any problems, but if there are none, there's no need for me to stay.

"Ah, but the names of these children..."

"Shouldn't you be the one to name them? You are their mother."

At my words, Thetis hesitated for a moment before nodding slightly.

"Yes. They are my children, so I should name them, just like you named us."

I simply smiled at Thetis.

And when the other children heard that Thetis had shared her scales.

"If we share our scales with dinosaurs, they will become like us? Then I want to share!"

"Yes. Me too."

Sharing scales became a trend among the other children.

"It's fine to share, but you should carefully choose who you share them with."

"Eh? Can't I just share them with anyone?"

Ifrit... Are you not thinking at all...?

"Sharing your scales means you are dividing your power among other dinosaurs, making them your children. You understand the significance, right?"

"But mother also shared her scales with us?"

"And that's how I made you my children."

Though it makes the space under my jaw itch.

"Anyway, choose wisely who you will share your scales with. Choose those who will follow you well, and whom it would be alright to share your power with."

The other children agreed with my words.

Sharing one's power with another requires careful consideration.

Thus, the children traveled the world, selecting dinosaurs to receive their scales.

Each child's criteria were quite interesting, but to put it simply...

"I chose ones who, like me, wish to fly in the sky."

Sylphid brought dinosaurs that longed for wings to fly.

"I brought brave ones, like flames! They're all incredibly brave!"

Ifrit brought dinosaurs that were brave... or rather, had fiery personalities.

But is that right? They seem rather ferocious.

"I chose ones who, like me, love nature. They're also gentle."

The dinosaurs Yggdrasil chose were similar in temperament to Yggdrasil.

It seems like the children are bringing dinosaurs similar to themselves?

"They're all dependable and good children. They don't talk much, though."

Sagar brought quiet and reserved children.

But they're so quiet they don't speak at all.

"I chose ones who, like me, want to become beautiful. Children who want to emulate me!"

The children Shamash brought were showing off their appearances. Their golden scales were shining.

But in an era where the concept of beauty is still unclear, does Shamash think of themselves as the epitome of beauty?

Well, having confidence is a good thing.

"I chose children who wanted to become family. Thanks to that, the number was quite large."

"Erebus... you... your scales...!"

Erebus came with dozens. No, you have hardly any scales left under your jaw! Only one of the silver scales I gave you remains!

"It's okay. If I can increase my family, this is a small price to pay."

"If that's what you want, I won't say much... but, I wish you knew moderation."

It seems Erebus values family, perhaps because of the stories I told about family.

Honestly, I was worried he might bring children like himself, dark offspring of the shadows. But this is much more positive.

It's good that so many dragons have been born...

"What about those children?"

In the direction I pointed, there were dinosaurs that hadn't fully accepted the power of the scales and hadn't become dragons.

There were ones whose front legs had turned into wings, walking on two legs, a bit smaller than dragons, and those that didn't grow wings and crawled on all fours.

They looked a bit pitiful, but what can we do? It's their own fault for lacking the strength they desired.

Even if I wanted to help... it seems there's nothing I can do.

"Those guys were prepared for this much when they accepted it. Even though they've transformed like that, they've become much stronger than before."

I looked at the dinosaurs that hadn't become dragons. They were pitiful, but perhaps they were satisfied in their own way.

Well, if they're content, then it's fine.

"Let's call the ones with wings wyverns, and the ones without wings drakes."

"Huh? Oh, okay."

Wyverns and drakes, staples of fantasy.

It might not be the best names for children who couldn't become dragons, but they fit too well.

"What do you plan to do with those children?"

"Hmm... there's nothing we can do. They've already partially accepted the power of the scales and transformed."

"What about the scales?"

"We've recovered what we could. Erebus spread his scales so much that many were lost..."

"That was within my expectations."

"Well, if Erebus says so."

Hopefully, the unrecovered scales won't cause any problems.

And so, dragons came into existence in the world.

It's good that dragons have come into existence, but...

"Another fight?"

"The red ones attacked first!"

"The black ones invaded our territory first!!"

"We were just passing by! We even told Ifrit!"

"I didn't hear it!!!"

It was complete chaos.

Especially the hot-tempered red dragons and the blacks, who were too numerous to control, often caused problems.

Haha. What a mess.

"Great Creator Dragon, please make a judgment!"

"Who's the Creator Dragon? Who?"

"But everyone calls you the Creator Dragon. Aren't you the divine dragon that has existed since the beginning of the world, right?"

"Well, that's true, but..."

It's quite burdensome to be called by such a grand title.

"Although the black child did invade the territory, they had informed Ifrit beforehand... So, I think it's Ifrit's fault for not properly conveying the message."

"What?! Why?!"

"Or, it's the fault of the red child who attacked the black child without confirming with Ifrit."


Honestly, the red child is at fault for attacking without assessing the situation.

"From now on, don't attack first. You're not mindless beasts, try to solve things through dialogue. Don't try to solve everything with violence."

The red child, knowing their fault, nodded slightly with a sullen expression.

"And you, black child. Don't just fight to the death if they attack first. Try to solve it through dialogue."


"Though the other side is more at fault, you also fought back. You know what the reds are like."

"That's... but when they attacked first, I just reacted..."

"This time, I'm siding with you because the red's fault is clear, but remember that fighting itself is wrong."

The young dragons, with their slightly better than beast-like mindset, were quite wild.

But well, it's fortunate they can understand through conversation.

And so, I spent my time mediating among the numerous dragons.Gt latest ovel chpters on nv(e)lbj/n(.)c/m
