Chapter 111: Establishment of the Monster Trainer League (Part Two)

In his dream Gao Peng met two men, one with a sledgehammer, and one with a dagger. They were threatening his life.
No matter how Gao Peng ran, he couldn’t lose them. Finally Gao Peng stood still, panting.
Of course, he wouldn’t feel actual exhaustion in a dream. This kind of exhaustion was subconsciously imposed on him by his brain.
Gao Peng felt sweaty and sticky. He was very uncomfortable.
In the dream one of the men had a smirk on his face. Just when one of them raised a hand to pound him, a monster suddenly rushed out from the nearby forest.
It was an eight-story tall spider that used its legs to crush both of the two men.
After waking up, Gao Peng was a little confused. He wiped the sweat on his face. Was he afraid those two men would take his life?
To be honest, Gao Peng was not afraid. After all, he had taken on and killed vicious monsters. Why would he be scared of a few people? Moreover, the two of them were the ones who started trouble with him. If Stripey was not there, he wouldn’t have had the Shifting Constellations ability. He would be the one who died.
A week passed, ushering in the National College Entrance Examination. It was the cultural college entrance examination.
This was trivial to Gao Peng! He did not panic at all. For students who were good at studying, cultural exams were never difficult. It was just about rote memorization.
He used to rank fourth in his grade. He was 15 points away from the student who ranked first. Gao Peng was in a bad condition before. He only had 60 points for his physical education class, just enough for him to pass. It was because of this that his average was pulled down by 20 points.
Ever since he had gotten his new familiar, Gao Peng realized that his physical fitness got better and better. Although he hadn’t become Superman, he could run a kilometer without gasping. It had been proven that the strength of familiars also affected the physical state of the monster trainers.
However, it was not enough to make the monster trainer so strong as to be able to participate directly in a fight between familiars, because the feedback was probably about less than one percent of the power of the familiar. That was too low to allow for the monster trainers to get into a fight between familiars. It was only enough for the monster trainers to last longer when running away.
Even in the best-case scenario, familiars would only be able to increase the monster trainers’ strength by 20.
Two days passed and the cultural college entrance examinations ended. For many candidates, it ushered in the most beautiful summer holiday in 12 years. They were so happy that they could fly.
If one were to rank the top holidays, the summer holidays right after the National Higher Education Entrance Examination would rank in the top three. The students who had just finished their exams were like huskies who were allowed to run free and go wild.
After the test, Gao Peng would be able to leave this matter behind. The results would come out in two weeks regardless of what he did. Worrying about it now would be useless.
After the exam, Gao Peng quickly started the process of training. He found out that there was nothing more fun than training his familiar.
When danger occured, the most reliable partner was his own familiar. He felt a sense of fulfillment and accomplishment growing alongside them.
In the afternoon, the bat monster was delivered to the training ground. It was hung on top of the cage and had become the mascot of the training ground. It was sent there every day like a shopfront. Unfortunately, no familiar had successfully challenged it.
The Skull-winged Blue Bat hanging from the top of the cage yawned with boredom and looked at the humans around it.
After some time, the Skull-winged Blue Bat’s courage grew strong. Its fear of humans had disappeared, as it would get food and water from them every day. They even allowed it to enjoy the breeze. Occasionally, they would let it train by fighting with some small creatures. The Skull-winged Blue Bat’s days were happy.
“Instructor, I want to challenge it today!” Chen Hanqiao said to the instructor.
Standing behind him was his Electric Luster Bear.
Gao Peng glanced at it. After a few days, this stupid bear had increased by another level. Its fur was shiny, and its body was fat and strong. Bears really grew quickly.
This had basically become a daily routine, as Chen Hanqiao would challenge the Skull-winged Blue Bat every two days.
When the Skull-winged Blue Bat saw the Electric Luster Bear, it immediately began to prepare. It was just a toy to the bat. The stupid bear had come to play with it again.
The bat stared at the Electric Luster Bear walking into the cage confidently, but no matter how it provoked it, the bat would not come down.
Therefore, the Electric Luster Bear did not put in a lot of effort. It immediately squatted on the ground after entering the cage. Its ears dropped down to cover its ears, and it fell asleep.
The Skull-winged Blue Bat looked at it for a while and opened the mouth to release an sonic attack. However, the thick-skinned bear was indifferent to it and continued to sleep. After a while, the Skull-winged Blue Bat felt bored. It closed its eyes, and within moments, it fell asleep as well.
A group of people were standing outside the cage. They were shocked. Both of the monsters fell asleep? Just like that?
Watching it made them feel helpless. Chief Instructor Chen was also unhappy. He wanted them to fight, not sleep! He hurriedly told Chen Hanqiao to call out his Electric Luster Bear, saying in disdain, “Only Chen Hanqiao has been striving hard to fight in challenges. Although he did not succeed, his spirit is worth learning from!”
After a pause, Chief Instructor Chen whispered, “To encourage you, if you successfully beat the Skull-winged Blue Bat, it will be yours!”
This Skull-winged Blue Bat was definitely a top elite monster according to its performance. Signing a contract with it or selling it were both good choices. A top-class flighting type elite monster was worth at least a few hundred Alliance credits.
All the monsters that were been beaten before, alive or dead, were given to the military. In this special case, many people couldn’t help but feel tempted. At the same time, they felt Chief Instructor Chen was willing to spend a lot of money in order to motivate them!
Gao Peng had to admit that he was also tempted. It was an offer that touched his utmost desires.
There was only half a month left until the Monster Trainer College Entrance Examination anyway. He would bring Dumby tomorrow. There would be no way to conceal him, but he didn’t have to this time; being low-key didn’t mean he had to conceal everything he did. He could occasionally pretend to be weak in order to defeat a strong opponent as camouflage, but pretending to be weak for too long might actually make him become weak.
When there was a need to showcase one’s ability, one would need to showcase enough of it so that they could attract more resources that would help in their growth.
However, a major event disrupted Gao Peng’s rhythm and it brought the attention of the world on him.
On June 10th, a message spread throughout the human world at an extremely fast pace. That message led to numerous discussions and disputes among countless people: the New World Allied Government united the world’s top 12 monster trainer organizations and monster trainer leagues.
The Monster Hunting Association and Monster Breeder Association officially announced their incorporation into the Monster Trainer League. They became the Monster Hunter Department and the Monster Breeder Division.
Overnight, the Monster Trainer League became the most powerful force, second only to the New World Allied Government.
