Mages Are Too OP - Chapter 569
Chapter 569: 569
Chapter 569 A Dragon
This male cat-human looked rather miserable . The wounds on his body were bleeding hard .
The people who threw him to the street were on top of the building on the right side of the street .
They were a few male human beings, who were pointing at the male cat-human and laughing .
The male cat-human struggled to raise his head while he vomited blood .
Maromatha let out a cry and examined him, only to find that he was dying . She immediately cast Minor Healing on him .
However, it didn’t really work .
After all, this cat-human was too gravely wounded .
Besides, not everybody had a full Intelligence growth like Roland did . Also, not everybody had carefully studied every spell that they knew .
Therefore, Roland was good at the spells of all schools, whereas Maromatha was not even as good at spatial spells as Roland was, not to mention those in other schools .
In addition, her level was far lower than Roland’s too . It was only natural that her Minor Healing didn’t work .
Maromatha tried to save this male cat-human, but his face was gradually turning pale . He would probably bleed to death before his wounds completely closed .
Beads of sweat dripped from the black cat’s forehead .
She was somewhat desperate to find that she couldn’t save her compatriot .
At this moment, Roland stepped up and said, “Let me . ”
He snapped his fingers and cast Minor Healing too, but the mass of light that Roland summoned was brighter and purer .
The male cat-human’s wounds healed at a high speed . His bleeding stopped in three seconds, and he looked a lot better .
Maromatha was greatly relieved to see that the male cat-human was no longer in danger . Then, she looked at Roland in surprise and slightly nodded . “Thank you for your help . ”
Roland lightly waved his hand . Maromatha helped the male cat-human sit down on one side of the street . She then looked up at the few human beings on the top of the building . Her face was rather cold .
This was a populated city, and the street was quite crowded .
Seeing that drama was going on, many passersby surrounded the area and whispered to each other .
The few men on the building were apparently ordinary people, but they weren’t frightened at all in the presence of the cat-girl Mage .
They even looked at the cat-girl cockily .
Maromatha raised her head and asked coldly, “Why did you oppress my compatriot?”
“We didn’t oppress him!” The few men laughed, and one of them said, “He owes us a huge debt that he can’t repay . We asked him whether he was willing to die or sell his wife to us . He chose to die, so we granted his wish . ”
The cat-girl quickly looked at the male cat-human who was leaning against the wall . He guiltily moved his eyes away . “That’s still not a reason to force someone to die . ”
“Miss Cat, your compatriot is neither willing to repay his debt nor sell his wife . There isn’t a third option here, is there?” one of the men said helplessly, shrugging . The other men on the top of the building all laughed hard .
The passersby pointed their fingers and whispered too .
Roland looked around and saw their expressions and behavior . He was deep in thought .
The vulpera prince sneered and looked at the cat-girl with obvious mockery on his face .
The way that those men addressed her was quite sarcastic by itself .
The black cat was very cold . She was furious, but she couldn’t lose her temper because she could tell that her compatriot really owed them money .
She thought for a moment and said, “If you need the money for a good reason…”
But she was interrupted halfway through her sentence .
The men on the building shouted, “Miss Cat, you can’t talk sense into him . He has a gambling problem . He borrowed high-interest loans from us as well as others . His family won’t have a good life even if he lives . If you’re really hoping to help him, either pay the debt for him, or just let him die . ”
The black cat was stunned . The male cat-human kept his head lowered, not daring to look the black cat in the eye . In the end, the black cat heaved a long sigh and asked, “How much money do you owe?”
“One gold coin, 36 silver coins, and forty bronze coins,” the men on the top of the building shouted .
The black cat shivered .
Too much . The money was too much for her .
She was a reasonably strong and registered Mage, but it was universally known that being a Mage was costly .
Hearing the number, Marilyn glanced at Roland . Seeing that he had no intent to help, she kept silent .
The black cat helplessly closed her eyes . A moment later, she asked Roland, “Sir, can I borrow fifty silver coins?” .
Of course… Roland didn’t say anything but simply took out a gold coin from the system Backpack and gave it to her . Roland didn’t want to help the male cat-human; he’s always hated gamblers .
However, the black cat was more or less a friend anyway, and he had to help her now that she requested it .
The two matters should be considered separately .
Looking at Roland gratefully, Maromatha took another fifty silver coins out of her portable space and gave them to the male cat-human . “Repay your debt with this . Buy some meat with the rest of the money so that your health will improve . ”
The male cat-human looked at the coins in his hand with glittering eyes . He bowed at the black cat and threw most of the coins to the top of the building .
The few men collected the money without counting it, and one of them said to the black cat, “The black cat is truly your people’s fortune bringer . Whenever your compatriots who are in trouble meet her, they can always count on her to get them out of it . ”
“Cut the crap and get the hell out of here . ”
The few men laughed and left . The male cat-human looked at Maromatha and said, “Thank you, my lady . ”
“Don’t gamble anymore . ”
The male cat-human nodded and left after expressing his gratitude . He even looked back every few steps, as if he were reluctant to leave them .
Because the drama was over, the passersby soon dispersed .
The black cat looked a lot more relaxed, if not happy .
Although she had lost a fortune, she had saved a compatriot and his family, which was a good thing . But at this moment, the vulpera prince laughed aloud .
The black cat’s smile was frozen . She rounded on the vulpera prince and demanded, “What are you laughing at?”
“Your stupidity, your self-affection, and your unawareness when you were manipulated . ”
“What do you mean?”
The black cat glared at the vulpera prince, having no idea what he was talking about .
Roland heaved a sigh and said, “That cat-human and those human beings were accomplices . ” “Huh? How is that possible?” Maromatha was stunned at first, and then she sneered . “Did you not see how badly he was wounded? He could’ve been killed by the fall . ”
“Indeed, he could’ve . He did owe them money . ” Roland nodded . “But it does not mean he couldn’t conspire with his creditors and let you pay off the debt for him . He couldn’t afford the debt anyway, and he was almost cornered to his death, so he might as well take a chance . If it worked, he didn’t need to pay a debt anymore, and you might save him in the end! Their acting was all too obvious . You were probably the only one who didn’t see it . Even Marilyn noticed something . ” How could that be!
The black cat couldn’t have been more suspicious .
She wouldn’t have been convinced if the vulpera was the only one saying that .
But since Roland said the same, she thought that it was probably the truth .
She bit her lip softly .
It had been her lifelong principle to help her compatriots, but if she were “manipulated” in such a way, even she wouldn’t be too happy about it .
“The lucky black cat . ” The vulpera chuckled and said, “You are a celebrity in this city . Everybody calls you that to your face, but secretly, we call you the idiotic black cat . As far as I know, you did help a lot of cat-humans at first, but the good deeds you did later were mostly the tricks of your compatriots . ”
It was a heavy blow to the black cat .
She felt that the world was swirling, and she could barely stand steadily .
She had been trying to help her people for years, and this was what she got?
Looking at the black cat who seemed entranced, Roland cast Sobering on her . It was a level-two spell that could take care of minor mental problems and might be handy in daily life .
Thanks to Sobering, the black cat was in much better spirits . She heaved a sigh . “Fine, then . Mr . Roland, I’ll take you to put the vulpera in prison first . ”
The vulpera prince chuckled and didn’t say anything .
In fact, the vulpera prince’s life was not at risk . He was the prince of his people, after all, and as a noble, he could be exchanged for a decent ransom . People like him wouldn’t be killed easily unless they did something too outrageous .
The vulpera was a traitor of the Spatial Magic Tower, but he only stole something and didn’t kill anyone; the consequences weren’t too grave . So, he wouldn’t be executed, and the vulpera clan could free him as long as they paid enough ransom .
Nevertheless, it would be humiliating for the vulpera clan .
So, the vulpera prince didn’t want to be caught and had been trying to escape .
Unlike the Red Magic Tower, the Spatial Magic Tower’s campus was rather spaced out .
The facilities such as the library, the classrooms, and the dormitories were far away from each other .
It was the Spatial Magic Tower’s unique layout that was meant to force the students to use teleportation more often in life as exercises .
The Council of Elders of the Spatial Magic Tower was at the center of the city . After the black cat took Roland and the others in, an elder soon greeted them .
The elder was very slim and only about 1 . 6 meters tall, so he appeared very small .
He looked at the black cat and said, “I thought you wouldn’t arrive for another dozen days . You were rather fast . ”
“We came in a straight line without any detours . That’s why we were so fast,” explained the black cat .
“It doesn’t matter . Everything is fine as long as the prisoner is here . ” The elder waved his right hand and summoned two guards who dragged the vulpera prince away . “Roland from the Red Magic Tower, your remarkable performance in the meeting last time left a deep impression on me . I did not ask you to escort the prisoner back here because nobody else could do the job . ”
“You want me to do something for you, right?” Roland sighed .
“Yes . ” This elder pushed four spell models to Roland . “These are the agreed-upon rewards . The Spatial Magic Tower has been caught in some trouble recently, and we need a strong expert who’s unafraid of death to take care of it . ”
“What kind of trouble?”
“A dragon!” said the elder helplessly . “It’s a white dragon . We need a Mage powerful in evocation to help us!”
