It Felt Its Shell Was Somewhat Cold

There was a white jade plate on a white jade table with a big piece of meat. The meat was about the size of a small round table and looked like half of a heart that was still bright red in color. It was still pulsating rhythmically when they laid eyes on it.
Gu Xijiu looked at the bloody meat and then looked at her son’s dirty face. “Hao Er, this is…?”
“The heart of a Flood Dragon! Mom, do you like it?” Di Hao looked up at her and waited for praise.
“Uhmmm… I like…” Gu Xijiu never expected this to be the so-called ‘big’ gift from her son.
Of course, she did not dislike it. After all, her son was so young and still brought a gift back for her. She was delighted but just did not expect the kid to bring back such a strange item. He actually took out the heart of a creature.
Gu Xijiu had seen a lot of dragons in the course of her existence, and many died by her hand. Nonetheless, she only heard a dragon’s heart could improve one’s spiritual power. Was it so tasty to consume?Had her son brought it back for her to cook?
Anyway, since it was brought back by her son, she would surely entertain his request. Therefore, she pulled up her sleeves and was ready to cook it. “Hao Er, this probably came from a large dragon, right? It was excellent that you could hunt it down. So, how do you want to eat it? I think it can be made into more than a dozen types of dishes.”
Di Hao remained silent.
“Something smells so good! What is so fragrant?” The mussel and Lu Wu rushed over from a distance. When they saw the big heart on the table, they squinted at it. “It is such a huge heart! It looks so juicy and tender! Master, you can certainly bake a lot of skewers with such a big heart! Master, let’s grill it! It must taste very nice…”
“I think roasting the mussel would also be very delicious.” Di Hao smiled slightly and circled around the mussel. “Its meat is tender. Other than roasting, we can also cook another pot of soup…”
The mussel was speechless. It felt that the clamshell suddenly turned cold. It shrunk and weakly said, “I am too old. My meat is also very, very old…”
“Uhm, how old are you?”
The mussel straightened its chest to reply, “More than 10,000 years old!”
“Well, you are just over 10,000 years old. As compared to the 100,000-year-old Flood Dragon, your meat is still considered tender. What’s more, the meat of a mussel is always tender. Since you have been practicing for so long, I bet your meat must be extra nutritious!” While walking around it, Di Hao stared at the mussel as if it was his next meal!
The mussel wanted to cry in fear. It pitifully said, “I… Master, I have to practice. I need to leave first.”
It pulled Lu Wu and ran away immediately!
The little guy was too ferocious! The mussel only wanted a small piece of meat from the large heart, but apparently, the boy wanted to trade that meat for its entire body!
Gu Xijiu was surprised. “Hao Er, did you say that the owner of this dragon heart is 100,000 years old?”
“Well, it is 100,000-years-old exactly, and it is still a white dragon that has never killed anyone while practicing its immortality.”
Gu Xijiu was stunned.
“Was it turning into a dragon?” Di Fuyi suddenly asked.
“Yes, when I went, it had already turned to be three-quarters of a dragon; it almost ascended.”
Gu Xijiu was speechless again! She felt a little sympathetic to the Flood Dragon. It was not easy to practice for so many years! Furthermore, it had to refrain from killing as well.
A Flood Dragon’s nature was typically savage and cruel. Most of them had dark practices. It was really rare to encounter such a pure breed. Nonetheless, it was unfortunate for the dragon that it had to meet her son.
