Whether You Call Me a Guardian Dragon or Not, I'm Going to Sleep – Chapter 25: The Dawn of Human Life (7)

Chapter 25: The Dawn of Human Life (7)


The leader's gaze was fixed on the crown in my hand.

A dazzling silver crown. It's naturally remarkable at first glance.

I twirled the crown on my finger, tossed it up, and caught it again.

The crown and the leader's eyes moved in unison, which was somewhat amusing.

"Do you want this?"


The leader did not hide his desire for the crown. A desire honest to its primitive nature. Even after learning language and forming a primitive society, that desire remains as honest as that of a beast.

Well, I made it to give it away in the first place, so it doesn't really matter.

That's why it holds even more value.

"Alright. I will give you this crown."


"But, there is a condition."

I said with a faint smile on my lips.

"Lead the humans well. That is the condition."

The number of humans is not yet large, so I could intervene and meddle. But if the number of humans increases, I won't be able to care for all of them.

If I ask the leader to look after the humans in my stead, wouldn't he do well?

Just like how I left all matters of the dragons to the Dragon Lord.

"Is that all there is to the condition?"

"That's all? Do you know how difficult that is?"

Even the dragons who inherited my scales hardly listen to me, let alone humans.

Creatures with strong egos are hard to manage. Un (nod).

Ah, right. I should add some magic to this crown to help him govern the other humans.

Not too powerful magic. Just a modest... minor effect should be fine... maybe something like an increase in charm?

Even if it's an increase in charm, not too dramatic of an effect, just something that makes the person wearing the crown be seen more positively, with more favor.

And add immunity to disease and poison so he doesn't die prematurely... while I'm at it, should I also add an increase in vitality? If it works properly, it should extend his lifespan a bit...

My magic flowed from my hand into the crown, bestowing it with magic. A weak enchantment that captivates the minds of others. Magic that completely negates poison and disease...

Ah, congenital diseases can't be helped with this. It's a mechanism that reverts to the base state when a disease or poison is detected. Congenital diseases are considered the base state, so there's nothing I can do about them.

If I were to cure that disease, it might revert back to the base state and the disease could reappear.

Well, would that even happen? Unlikely. Surely not.

In addition to a slight increase in vitality. The silver, transformed by magic, seems to absorb the magic well. Un.

I examined the crown in my hand, now faintly glowing due to the magic I had bestowed. The crown, glowing faintly, certainly looked like a precious item.

Hmm. Quite a nice feeling.

Honestly, I could make it a cheat item if I wanted to, but since it's supposed to be a light-hearted item...

Just wearing this crown should slightly extend one's lifespan. Not a tremendous effect, but it should be fine!

Let's see, the magic used includes...

Automatic size adjustment.

Charm increase (minor).

Poison immunity.

Disease immunity.

Vitality increase (minor).

Something like that.

Hmm... Would a slight increase in charm or vitality be enough? Should I add a bit more?

No, this should be sufficient. It's still an era without magic or anything. This level of magic should be enough. Surely.

And as a finishing touch, let's add an automatic repair magic. More precisely, a time-related magic that reverts to a designated point in case of damage.

Just by wearing it, one gains favor from others, becomes immune to diseases and poison, and even increases vitality. And if it gets damaged, it automatically repairs itself.

With these minor magics applied, it's a modest crown, but in an era without magic, this should be more than enough.

"Take it."

I levitated the crown with my magic and sent it in front of the leader.

"This crown is a token of your promise to me. If you keep your promise to lead the humans in the right direction, this crown will bestow blessings upon you."

The crown, emitting a faint light. The human leader stared blankly at the crown and threw away the branch crown he had been wearing on his head.

"If you do not lead the humans in the right direction, the crown will fall off your head. So be careful, and remain vigilant."

The crown settled perfectly on his head.

As if it was meant to be there all along.

"Oh... Ohhh...!!"

The crown on the leader's head began to glow brighter.

It looked as if a halo was shining from behind his head.

The Immortal Crown.

One of the symbols of the Emperor of the Empire, and one of the three wonders of humanity.

The year of creation is unknown. There are theories that it was created right after the birth of humanity, but due to being made of pure mithril, it is impossible to measure its magical era, and thus it cannot be confirmed.

It's natural, considering it's an imperial treasure that has never been approved for era measurement.

It protects the wearer's life from poison and disease and enhances the wearer's charm with primitive magic, and because it is made of pure mithril that enhances magic, its effects are maximized.

However, more important than the magic it carries is its symbolism.

Since ancient times, it has been used as a symbol of power among human kings, and there is even a legend that whoever possesses this crown becomes the king of humans.Fdd ew updts on n(o)v/e/lin(.)com

Its symbolism is so immense that wars have broken out among those who coveted this crown, leading to the disappearance of several kingdoms into the annals of history.

Although there was a period when it disappeared from history, it became a symbol of the Emperor of the Empire and a national treasure of the Empire after the founder of the Empire overcame all sorts of hardships to find it again.

According to some theories, when one wears this crown, it asks a question, and if the answer is incorrect, the wearer cannot fully benefit from the crown's effects, and if the answer is completely wrong, the crown tightens around the wearer's head, causing pain.

Now that I've given away the roughly made crown, let's get back to the main point.

Since the humans, still without thread, are pitifully wrapping themselves in leather.

I presented a spinning wheel, thread, and a needle made of bone.

"This is a gift."

"This is...?"

"It's a tool for spinning animal fur or plant fibers into thread like this. You can't always live wrapped in animal skins, can you?"

It's troublesome since I don't have knowledge about sewing.

Could I figure it out by searching on the internet over there? I can make materials as much as I want...

Well, it's better to do it than not.

"How do you use this?"

"This? You use it like this."

I snapped off a branch from the hut, trimmed it appropriately, and fitted it with a spindle that would act as a weight.

Then, I sharpened the back into a hook shape, intertwined the animal's down well, and spun the rod with the spindle attached to spin the thread.

Of course, it's a primitive form, so the efficiency isn't great, but for humans at the Stone Age level, even this much would be a big help.

"By spinning it like this, you can make thread like this. You can use this thread and needle to sew leather, use a fishing rod and hook to catch fish, and by weaving the thread horizontally and vertically, you can also make cloth."

I levitated the thread in my hand, weaving it back and forth in the air to make cloth.

The sight of thread being woven into cloth. The leader of the humans just stared blankly as the lines stacked layer by layer, turning into fabric.

"Well, I don't expect you to do this from the start. For now, just focus on using the thread made from this for various purposes. Making cloth is a task for later."

You can't expect to be full with the first spoonful, can you?

Telling those who have no concept of thread to weave cloth is no different from telling a baby who can't even crawl to run.

For now... it should be enough to just let them know that such a thing exists.

Moreover, this spinning wheel can be made by carving a stone appropriately or by firing clay... Ah, come to think of it, they don't have pottery yet, do they?

I thought pottery would appear soon since they have fire and can use tools. Hmm...

Well, they'll probably figure it out on their own. Surely I don't have to teach them everything one by one, do I?
