Chapter 563: Aurora Dragon Ant

An Emperor-tier familiar appearing with a snap of one’s fingers. While Tong Xiang had much to say, he only wanted to say three words.
But to save his skin, he swallowed those three words. “That’s nice.”
“Master, I found this.” Floating Light held out a silver metal ball in its left arm.
“See, it’s still alive,” Floating Light flaunted to Gao Peng like a child who had received a trophy and went home to show it to its father.
“Good boy, Floating Light!” Gao Peng patted its small bare head as encouragement, then turned to look at the Meteorite Magic Ball.
[Monster Condition]: Moderate injury
“Do you know what this is?” Gao Peng pointed to the Meteorite Magic Ball and asked Tong Xiang. He noticed the strange look that Tong Xiang had when he looked at the magic ball and thought he might know something that he didn’t.
“If I’m not wrong, this should be the Starry Magic Ball,” Tong Xiang gushed enviously.
The Starry Magic Ball… the name differed slightly from the Meteorite Magic Ball title that he saw.
“You should have seen how he used this item just now… Don’t look at it as an item. It’s a familiar. You should know that monster trainers can only sign one familiar…” Tong Xiang was suddenly reminded of Gao Peng’s identity, and his heart ached even more.
“Well, some of us can only sign one familiar, and then our personal strength becomes greatly limited. As the strength of monster trainers is weak, this Starry Magic Ball, to a large extent, compensates for our individual combat power and because it latches onto another body, it can also help with the drawbacks of protecting one’s life.
“However, such familiars are precious, and more importantly, rare. Only a handful of monster trainers own this beast.” Tong Xiang sighed.
Gao Peng looked Tong Xiang up and down. “Do you want it?” Gao Peng asked suddenly.
“Uh?” Tong Xiang’s heart fluttered. He said hesitantly, “But this beast is very precious. If you groom it properly, it’ll be like having another familiar… You can take it over directly, and it’ll allow you to get a taste of the power of the beast. More than physical strength, it has elemental power.”
Gao Peng chuckled. “Does your tribe have this kind of familiar?”
“Yes.” Tong Xiang nodded honestly.
“Well, I’ll find another one after I exterminate the Youhu Tribe. Even Yin You has one. I don’t believe that I can’t find a second one in their tribe.”
“Ah?” Tong Xiang’s eyes widened. Exterminating the Youhu tribe… would he really be so cruel?
The earnest Tong Xiang shook his head quickly. “Their tribe has an Overlord-tier familiar, so even if you wanted to take revenge, you don’t have to go now.”
Gao Peng took a second look at Tong Xiang and his thick eyebrows. “I have my plans. All you need to do is tell me what you know. Giving you this Meteorite Magic Ball is conditional, and the condition is that you tell me everything you know about the Youhu Tribe.
“Don’t tell me you don’t know anything. If you can be here today, a thick-browed guy like you must know about the Youhu Tribe.” Gao Peng laughed.
Why does Gao Peng always mention my thick eyebrows when he’s talking to me? thought Tong Xiang. Aside from the Starry Magic Ball, Tong Xiang was fearful of Gao Peng’s powers, so he shared every detail of what he knew with Gao Peng.
“The Youhu Tribe has two Overlord-tier familiars, ten Emperor-tiers, and countless King-tiers.” Tong Xiang sighed.
“On Earth Star, except for yours, the number of top familiars is very small. For example, the King tier is considered rare on your planet, but in the Youhu Tribe they have hundreds and thousands.” Tong Xiang had an unreadable look in his eyes.
“This is why the Youhu Tribe appears conceited when facing your planet. It’s because of their strength… Of course, that was before I met you,” Tong Xiang quickly added after he noticed Gao Peng’s expression.
“Where is the Youhu tribe?”
Tong Xiang fell silent. He felt like his actions that day lacked integrity. After all, he was from a tribe, but now he was giving information to another ally. He hesitated slightly, then shook his head vigorously. “The Youhu Tribe is in the Jiuli Wilderness, and the Jiuli Wilderness is a long way from our Sang Tong Tribe.”
“Where is the Sang Tong Tribe?” Gao Peng asked, faking curiosity.
Tong Xiang tensed up, like a vigilant baby hedgehog. “What are you up to? As you wished, I already told you the location of the Youhu Tribe.”
“I’m just wondering where the Sang Tong tribe is.” Gao Peng gave a friendly smile. “But I won’t force you since you don’t want to say it.
“Anyway, if I entered the Spatial Rift that you guys came out of, I would reach directly where you came in,” Gao Peng added thoughtfully.
“Yes…” Tong Xiang sighed. “Forget it. I know you’ll ask. The space crack for the Youhu Tribe is 18 miles outside the Qingzhou base city. The specific address is inconvenient for me to identify in words. When I head back, I’ll send it to you via Penguin. I’ll also add you as a friend in Penguin.”
“You have a future,” Gao Peng praised while patting Tong Xiang on the shoulder.
He threw the injured Meteorite Magic Ball to Tong Xiang, who scrambled to catch it. The ball was limp, maybe due to the death of its “master.” The meteorite seemed to have given up and resigned itself to its fate.
“Okay, let’s head back.” Gao Peng willed Floating Light and the Power King Kong Dragon Ant into the Familiar Space, then summoned a Level-70 Flamy to cleanly burn away all evidence. The place looked like it had just had a forest fire.
Then, with his arm over Tong Xiang’s shoulder, he returned from the suburbs to Mo Du City as though nothing had happened.
This was highly uncomfortable for Tong Xiang. The route had plenty of cameras. He knew that if anyone had bad intentions, they could definitely find out that he and Gao Peng had appeared together. He wouldn’t be able to shirk this relationship.
After returning to Mo Du base city and leaving Tong Xiang, Gao Peng called He Wei. “Uncle He, can you help look after my five students for the next few days? I have something going on and will need to leave Mo Du City for a while.”
He Wei easily agreed.
Gao Peng didn’t pack anything and simply summoned Fourth Baby when he was in the wild. A slender physique like that of a giant flying ant familiar appeared before Gao Peng. Its silvery white wings floated in the air, and the tip of its wings exuded a colorful sheen.
A sprinkle of light fluttered outward from the top of the wings, the silvery-white wings like molten silver.
