Chapter 1: When I woke up, I’ve become an earth dragon.
I woke up.
Hng… I had a good sleep.
Aah, I don’t want to wake up, but I don’t feel like sleeping anymore.
The fatigue from working overtime last night has gone now.
I don’t care. I want to stay in my bed for 3 days.
I don’t want to go to work.
More and more papers just keep piling on my desk. I wonder if it’s better to look for a new job.
It’s already too late, though.
While thinking of useless things, I sluggishly raised my body.
Did I bump into something?
What is this?
That moment, I realized something.
I was in a strange and pitch dark place.
And what is this, am I trapped? It feels like something is blocking my way.
It feels so stuffy.
What’s going on?
Yup, I understand it now.
Strangely, I’m surrounded by walls.
Oddly enough, it feels slimy too.
Is it a wooden box or something? But why is it wet?
Huh? Why am I inside a box?
Huh? By any chance, did I get kidnapped?
Am I being held captive?
It couldn’t be, right?!
I’m just a normal salary man. My life is far from extraordinary to be in this situation.
My saving is little to none. I’m single and both of my parents are living quiet life in the countryside.
You hear that right. I still don’t have a girlfriend.
I know I’m useless, but I never remember doing things that can bring resentment to the company.
What I’m trying to say here is, there’s no reason for me to get kidnapped.
I’m a pretty harmless creature, if I may say so myself.
And of course, I will never go to a dangerous place that can get me kidnapped.
I’m a scaredy-cat. A chicken. I haven’t gone to Kabukichō yet.
Then, how did I end up in this place?
Why I’m in here!
While I was screaming, flailing my arms around.
The box break open.
Rays of light enters the confinement.
It was dazzling.
When I took a closer look at it, it’s not a wooden box.
I wonder what is this?
A thin white shell? And its surface is slimy.
I know exactly what this thing is.
This is an egg, for sure!
It looks exactly like an egg!
…Hmm? An egg?
I have a strange feeling with it, so I quickly look at my body.
What I saw is soil-colored reptile arm and four fingers with claws protruding from each of them.
I looked down at my legs.
Similarly, they were also covered with rough scales.
The eggshell from earlier reflected some light and produced a faint image of me on it.
What I saw is a lizard.
No, it almost looks like a……
Thus, I was reincarnated as a dragon.
