In the end, Dumby dragged the Skull-winged Blue Bat out of the cage. It looked as if Dumby was dragging a dead body.
“Oh, how pitiful. It got beaten up so badly that it got a nosebleed.”
“It won’t be able to show off anymore. In the past few days, this bat has been riding high. It became too proud.”
A group of people gathered around and talked about the fight. They all felt surprised, shook their heads and chatted, taking delight in the misfortune of the bat.
Although the Skull-winged Blue Bat was a ghoul type, its body wasn’t made up of bones. It was just that many of its bones were visible from the surface. Its body was still made of flesh and blood.
“Instructor, will you keep your word? I am able to do as I please with the Skull-winged Blue Bat, right?” Gao Peng asked.
“You can do whatever you want with it,” Chief Instructor Chen said and waved his hands. This Skull-winged Blue Bat only had value in the outside world. It was just another normal monster before it would be sold for Alliance credits.
There were a lot of monsters in the wild for the military to choose from. As long as they put in the effort, there weren’t any monsters that they wouldn’t be able to catch. Half of the monsters that were currently being traded in the marketplace were caught by the military. The military were the real power behind the scene.
Since that was the case, Gao Peng was relieved and nodded.
Gao Peng stood on something that elevated him and shouted, “Is there anyone who is interested in this Skull-winged Blue Bat? It will cost you 500 Alliance credits. If you miss this deal today, you won’t get a chance tomorrow. Who knows when the next chance will be for you to get a top-tier familiar?”
Chief Inspector Chen got angry. He thought that Gao Peng wanted to use the bat himself. Who would’ve thought that once he got his hands on the Skull-winged Blue Bat, he would just sell it?
He closed his eyes. If he wants to sell it, then just let him sell it, he thought. How he dealt with the beast was his own business.
This Skull-winged Blue Bat was of no value to Gao Peng. Its combat power was not strong and besides flight, its abilities were not very good. Even its ability to fly was not really to its advantage.
Among the flying type monsters, the Skull-winged Blue Bats were not able to fly high or fast. They could only bully monsters that couldn’t fly. Living this sort of lifestyle would only guarantee that they would be destroyed when they met larger monsters.
Gao Peng wanted to train flying familiars to fight against other flying types. After all, he already had Dumby, Da Zi, and Stripey. He did not need a Skull-winged Blue Bat.
Although Gao Peng could level up the monster’s grade to improve its combat power, it would take more than one grade. The higher the grade, the more expensive the materials needed to up its grade.
Therefore, Gao Peng was preparing to cultivate a flying type familiar that already had a high stats. At the very least, it couldn’t be dominated by other flying types.
Mu Tieying came over and said, “I want to buy it. Sell it to me.”
Gao Peng was a little surprised. He did not think that Mu Tieying would want to buy it.
“Are you sure you want this bat…?” Gao Peng asked, hesitating.
“Yes. Stop fussing. You may look down on this Skull-winged Blue Bat, but we value it a lot,” Mu Tieying said. She rolled her eyes at Gao Peng.
Gao Peng returned a polite smile. Being called out on his true feelings in public was a little embarrassing.
The Skull-winged Blue Bat was able to pick up on some human emotions. It knew that it was being given up on. It couldn’t help but turn to look at Gao Peng.
Gao Peng was indifferent. After he took the money, he even looked slightly happy.
“I will buy you a good meal tonight!” Gao Peng said with gratification as he patted Dumby on the shoulder.
Dumby nodded. When it saw the bat lying on the ground, it went into deep thought. Would it get a good meal every time it gave this bat a beatdown?
Mu Tieying finished the transfer quickly, and Gao Peng was notified of the transfer within a short time.
Gao Peng was somewhat emotional. It seems that she was a rich little lady.
To sign a contract with a monster, the monster had to agree. Using brute force would not work. After all, this was a wild monster. Gao Peng reminded her, “You should pay attention when you interact with it. Its sonic attack can easily accidentally injure you.”
Mu Tieying nodded to show she understood.
At the end of school, many monster trainers continued to stay and train. After all, it was only two weeks until the final exam. As long as they felt the pressure, the students would stay back after school to train.
When they were out of school, Mu Tieying said to Gao Peng, “Can I reserve a position this weekend?”
“What?” Gao Peng asked, stunned.
“Your studio. Do think that you are still not as famous as before? Chang’an monster breeder rising star Mr. Gao, isn’t it?” Mu Tieying said. “Your reputation within this circle is well known. Although your greediness for money is also well known. The number of people who want to reserve a spot with you is quite high. So I want to reserve a position with you. If it isn’t convenient for you, then forget it.”
“Do you want to up Lotus Seed’s grade?” Gao Peng was put in an awkward position. After all, if Lotus Seed went up by another grade, it would be at the epic grade.
He did not want to reveal his ability to help a monster go up to epic grade so quickly.
Even if someone finds out that Lotus Seed is at the epic grade, they would think it was caused by a mutation during evolution. They would not have guessed it was because of Gao Peng’s ability.
“No, I want to level up the grade of that,” Mu Tieying said. She pointed to the Skull-winged Blue Bat lying besides her feet.
“You are sure you can sign a contract with it within a week?” Gao Peng was a little surprised. He then realized that this solved his dilemma. He quickly shut up.
Being able to tame monsters to make them into your own familiar was a skill that was cherished. There were ways to get them to follow orders.
Monsters also had feelings and intelligence, but they were relatively simple-minded. As long as one could find the monster’s preferences and use that knowledge to improve the relationship with the monster, it wasn’t that hard to get them to sign a blood contract.
This method would continue to be the secret of every family, passed down from generation to generation.
“Oh. My ride has arrived. I’ll head back first. Goodbye,” Mu Tieying said. She waved to Gao Peng and walked across the street.
An eight-wheeled truck was parked there.
Gao Peng was somewhat envious. She really was nouveau riche. She was picked up in a luxury vehicle that cost millions of dollars.
The rear compartment of the big truck slowly opened, and a heavy steel plate fell from the carriage. It looked like a ladder. Lotus Seed stepped on the steel plate and walked into the rear compartment of the truck, carrying the injured bat on its back.
Trucks had become a very popular luxury car in the new world because sports cars and saloon cars were too small. Humans could sit in them, but familiars wouldn’t have enough room. Familiars had become something indispensable in the new world, so some of the world’s top luxury car brands were introducing new lineups of luxury trucks, both practical and beautiful.
