Chapter 521 – Iron Dragon Tail
Chapter 521: Iron Dragon Tail
Floating Light stretched the exoskeleton on its back, wind circulating between its gaps, then it glided down to the bottom of the deep valley.
The Dragon Slaying Chapter shone with an aura of invisible force. This force protected it while it was drifting to the bottom of the valley. With resistance from the invisible force, its speed down was rather slow.
Flamy ferried Xiao Cao, Dumby, and Gao Peng down. As they flew down, Gao Peng landed directly at the bottom of Dragon Death Valley without alarming any monsters.
The monsters that hid behind the strange rocks quietly sized up Gao Peng and his team. The monster had spikes on its gray exoskeleton, its overlapping blue compound eyes carefully observing Gao Peng’s every move.
The most intelligent hunter in the jungle would never reveal its own prowess without confirming the ability of the enemy. When the enemy had been confirmed weak, they would reveal their ferocious, sandy… claws.
Flowing Light could suddenly be seen standing behind the Dragon Stone Beetle. It turned its head and gently licked the small green crystal on the blade of the knife. The monster core crystal was still stained with blood traces that weren’t dry yet.
The Dragon Stone Beetle remained in its original position, its ash-gray exoskeleton looking exceptionally weak. A dark green crack as thin as a strand of hair stretched from its forehead all the way to its back.
Crack. The Dragon Stone Beetle broke into two—right down the middle. The center of the forehead was empty, and its monster core crystal was missing.
Ooh, ooh, ooh… The numerous curious heads retracted as the monsters became exceedingly serious. Even the trees that were growing on rocks became solemn.
Not to be trifled with. Not to be trifled with. The covetous looks disappeared.
Gao Peng couldn’t be bothered with these low-level monsters. They were simply too low-level to interest him.
“Hmm… This isn’t good.” Gao Peng stopped in his tracks and rubbed his tummy, deep in thought.
Since Dumby had advanced to Emperor-tier, Gao Peng had been in a strange state. It was as though something had been brewing in his stomach, and this had lasted for over a month.
Gao Peng guessed that it might have been a special ability that would be revealed after he obtained his first Emperor-tier monster. Some of the supernatural abilities, like Elemental Barrier, Soul Chain, and Extraordinary Senses were revealed when he obtained his Chief-level, Lord-level, and King-tier monsters.
Although he was slightly fearful, Gao Peng continued to anticipate his new ability this time around. However, to uphold his prestige as a master, he hadn’t told the other familiars. After all, to mention that something was growing in one’s stomach would be too…
Without missing a beat, Gao Peng said, “Wait for me here. I need to be excused.” Making a series of left and right turns, Gao Peng went behind a rock that blocked himself from everyone’s view.
There was a warm heat flowing in Gao Peng’s stomach, and since he didn’t have legendary X-ray vision, he didn’t know what was going on inside him.
Gao Peng closed his eyes, contemplating. If he really gave birth to something, he would need to consider his heroic reputation, and so later…he would claim that he had found it.
The thing that had been gestating in his belly suddenly broke open. It was as if an enclosed world had a seam opened. As fate would have it, the mystery of the situation was revealed in Gao Peng’s mind. At this moment, Gao Peng’s ability as an Emperor-level monster trainer was awakened. Gao Peng opened his eyes, surprised. While this was unbelievable, he was also secretly relieved.
Returning to Dumby’s side, Gao Peng looked at Fourth Baby, bent over, used his palm to stroke the head of the Dragon Ant, then murmured in his heart, “Return.”
As soon as he willed it, the body of Fourth Baby shimmered in red light and then disappeared.
Elder Baby, Second Baby, Third Baby, Fifth Baby, Sixth Baby, and Baldie, who were playing noisily, turned to look at Gao Peng in confusion.
“Is Master performing magic?”
Gao Peng closed his eyes, and there was a mysterious space in his body. This space was an abstract place that existed in Gao Peng’s consciousness. The space was divided by many small boxes, and within one of the boxes lay a quiet Dragon Ant. Gao Peng counted a total of 100 boxes.
There was no concept of time in this space; it was in a special state of suspension. With a flick of his mind, the Fourth Baby disappeared from the space and reappeared by Gao Peng’s feet.
Fourth Baby didn’t seem to understand the situation and started circling around Gao Peng.
Gao Peng thought to himself, With this ability, I won’t have to worry about not being able to carry more monsters around.
However, monsters that were kept within the space seemed to be in a daze without much awareness. However, this space was a different dimension from the outside world. Since monsters could only grow gradually in the outside world as they absorbed the various elements of heaven and earth, being kept in this space would limit their growth. Long-term storage would affect their growth even more.
Nonetheless, to have this ability to bring along one’s own monsters could be wonderful at times, although currently, Gao Peng didn’t know the limits of this ability and the size of monster that it could store.
Gao Peng had Flamy carry him out of the valley, and in front of a shocked Goldie, stored Stripey in the portable space. Stripey could be stored in one box, which also meant that it took up the same storage space as the Ant Dragon.
It seems that the elite team was more suited for me…
A stunned Goldie turned his head, eyes as big as a saucer, its mouth open wide enough to swallow an entire duck egg. With a wave of his hand, Stripey had disappeared?!
“Gao Peng, you’re amazing!”
“Yup.” Gao Peng nodded his head and proceeded to put Goldie into the space.
Now, only a bewildered Xiao Hua, Nan Ju, and Bei Zhi were left in front of Gao Peng, and few King-tier ghouls were standing alone by the side of the cliff. Unless he took them as his familiars, he wouldn’t be able to put them in his space, but then again, it would be easy to release them if there were any accidents…
Despite considering it, he didn’t intend to own these three creatures. One of them was Dumby’s daughter, and the other two were just mascots. Those remaining were Dumby’s resurrected bunch of subordinates.
Gao Peng released Stripey and the rest from the space and allowed them to wait at the cliff for him.
Taking Flamy once more to the valley, Gao Peng took White Paper, Xiao Cao, and the seven Dragon Ants into the space. Only Flowing Light, Dumby, and Flamy were left outside.
Walking deeper into the valley, poisonous mist gradually spread from the strange stone columns, and the soil beneath their feet slowly grew softer. There was a sudden shriek in the forest ahead.
A huge dark blonde monster dashed out from the side of the slope. Without looking down at Gao Peng and the team who were by its feet, it dashed towards the depths of the valley, leaving a strong stench and quickly disappearing from view.
