One Day I Became a Hatchling: Chapter 7

“What should I do with this bundle of cuteness!”

Christina hugged and breathed out through her nose, feeling relieved inside.

Although it was suffocating, she was successful in making a good impression as expected.

‘It feels like all my scales are going to come off, take it easy.’

If anything, the effect was too good.

‘I guess I shouldn’t brag too recklessly.’

Christina repeated how cute it was and then put it down in the cradle.

He raised his arms again making a sound of ‘Kyuu.’


But no matter how long he waited, the milk was not brought out.

“What should we do? We don’t have milk today.”


The Imugi looked up in shock with wide eyes while still reaching out his arms.

‘No milk…?’

Thinking that he might starve instead of benefitting after showing his grown self, his legs gave out and he plopped down sitting.

From his expression, it seemed as if he had lost a kingdom.

‘Starving a creature that was just born not too long ago. As expected, you can’t trust recklessly.’

With hunger added to the sorrow, a feeling of helplessness started creeping in.

He looked at Christina with eyes full of distrust.


‘Are you laughing?’

As he couldn’t hide his dissatisfaction and twitched his mouth, Christina slightly smiled.

“I’ve brought something better than milk today.”

When Rai, who was hidden behind Christina’s body, floated up together, the basket that was obscured by Rai’s light came into view.

The Imugi squinted his eyes looking at Christina, realizing the situation.

‘Did you want to tease me?’

Even so, because it seemed like he was receiving a return gift from Christina, he overlooked the unpleasant part.

“Here. It’s something you can eat even if you haven’t grown all your teeth yet.”


The eggs in the basket were much bigger than usual eggs.

When Christina handed it to the Imugi, it was so big it filled both of his hands like a full moon.

“It’s the egg of a phoenix. It’s a bird that is said to be reborn from its own ashes even if it dies.”

‘I feel like I’ve heard something similar.’

Because it was such a fascinating creature, the Imugi remembered it as well.

Jujak (Vermilion Bird).

It was a divine creature that would come back to life no matter how it died.

‘No way it’s a Jujak’s egg though.’

The Jujak that the Imugi knew did not hatch from an egg.

He suppressed the feeling of discomfort and pondered how to eat the egg.

‘An egg from a bird with resurrection abilities.’

He could definitely feel strong energy from the egg.

Although the shell seemed really hard, as he pressed it with his claw, it gradually cracked.

He raised his forefinger and made a hole in the egg.

Because it was so hard, it took some effort to pierce it, but since the shell didn’t break easily, it maintained its shape without shattering.



When the Imugi peeled off the shell, the cooked, milky flesh was revealed.

Without waiting, he opened his mouth wide and took a big bite.

‘…! It’s delicious?’

It was as soft and savory as gourmet chefs would admire it.

The Imugi devoured one egg in an instant as if it had disappeared without a trace.

Seeing that, Christina let out a sigh of relief.

“I’m glad it suited your taste. I heard it’s a delicacy especially because it was baked with Red Dragon’s flame, but I was still worried.”

‘Delicious. It’s really delicious. How can there be such an egg.’

The Imugi made small noises while licking the egg crumbs around his mouth with his tongue.

The firm whites were so soft that they crumbled and melted like pudding in his mouth, and the yolk had a rich nuttiness that even felt invigorating.

Moreover, thanks to being roasted with dragon flame, he could absorb the magic power, and the seasoning was just right, not requiring additional salt.

“Kyuu. Oong!”

‘This really tastes amazing!’

Once he started eating, he couldn’t stop his hands.

Episode 7 Devoured!

In the midst of devouring them quickly, he already found himself holding the third roasted egg.

Looking at that scene affectionately, Christina gently said.

“Hehe. There’s plenty, so don’t rush. You should eat while drinking milk too, right? Even if you have a Hatchling’s stomach, you should be careful.”

He nodded but did not significantly reduce his eating speed.

Not only was the texture smooth and easy to swallow, but the taste was so good that even peeling the shell felt like a waste of time.

‘Huh? Why is this one so hard?’

He quickly put aside the particularly hard-shelled egg and turned to the easily peel-able roasted eggs.

As he chewed mouthfuls and drank milk, he gulped and ended up downing a whole bottle.

Despite being huge eggs, he ate five or six before finally lying down on his back.

‘Ugh. I’m full.’

Even though he already had a plump belly, now it was swollen and puffed up.

His belly was so full that every breath he took made a squeaking noise.

Christina cleared away all the egg shells and moved the basket near the cradle.

“I never imagined you’d eat so well. I guess I’ll have to get more.”

“Kyuu! Kyuu!”

Seeing the Hatchling kicking his feet in joy, Christina laughed contentedly.

“Alright. I’ll be off since it’s mentioned. Rest well, baby.”


The Imugi, rubbing his satisfied belly, waved his front paws in farewell.

‘Overeating, which is unlike me. I’ll need time to digest this…’

Though he had good digestion, he needed to rest a bit because his bloated belly made it hard to breathe.

He lay in the cradle, took deep breaths, and closed his eyes.


‘Did I doze off?’

Blinking his eyes open, the Imugi looked around.

Noticing he had fallen asleep, Rai seemed to have moved so that his light wouldn’t interfere with sleep.

The room was very quiet with neither Christina nor Rai around.

Looking around, the egg basket caught his eye.

He smacked his lips and thought.

‘I’m not that hungry, but… should I have one more?’

The sight of the well-roasted eggs was tempting.

‘Yes. One more won’t hurt.’

Strengthening his back muscles, he flapped his wings.

Although small compared to his body, the wings were enough to lift him.

Fluttering to the egg basket, he landed and eagerly picked up an egg with his front paws.

The smoky aroma stimulated his appetite.

There was no reason to hesitate.

Crunch. Breaking the shell, he took a big bite.

‘Indeed. This is the taste.’

It was amazing how one egg could make him experience heavenly flavors.

He was getting curious about the Red Dragon race.

‘If they can create this flavor, they might have incredible cooking talent.’

Resolving to eat just one more proved futile as he naturally ended up peeling and eating egg after egg, leaving only one egg behind.


It was an unusually large and beautifully shining egg.

Different from other eggs, it uniquely emitted a faint reddish glow and was the hardest one that he couldn’t break even when he threw it aside.

‘Eventually, only this one is left.’


Staring at the egg, he stood up using it as a support.

‘It was something I had to face head-on at some point.’

Mana energy subtly radiated from the Imugi’s eyes.

‘I didn’t want to go this far, but. Now’s the chance when no one is around.’

The energy he had gathered through training started to envelop his small body.

‘Kyuu… Huuh.’

Taking a deep breath, the Imugi spread his legs apart and got into a punching stance.

It was an unbelievably steady form for someone who had struggled to stand on two feet.



At the moment when his breath and energy perfectly aligned, he punched the egg.



Despite landing a proper punch filled with mana, he didn’t make a single crack, making the Imugi frown in frustration.

‘Well, if it could crack this easily, it would have broken already.’

He straightened his right hand and performed a knife-hand strike.


‘That didn’t work either?’

Not even his attack, sharper than most blades, had any effect.

Instead, his hand that struck the egg’s surface felt sore.

It even felt like the egg was nullifying his mana and draining his strength.

‘For a mere roasted egg?’

It was getting on his nerves.

‘I didn’t want to go this far, but…’

It also helped that he needed an outlet for his built-up energy from only focusing on training.

‘Just once. I’ll use all my strength.’

A seemingly unbelievable killer aura for such a small hatchling started emanating.

Having eaten plenty of mana-filled foods, he was brimming with energy.

‘This time, for sure!’

He gathered all his accumulated power.



The terrifying energy in the Imugi’s feet anchored itself to the egg’s surface.

‘Break (破)!’

The explosion of concentrated energy sent shockwaves inside the egg.

The central part of the egg seemed to quake as if an earthquake hit, making faint cracks and vibrations.
