My Super Pet Dragon - Chapter 52
Xu Zhan smiled coldly. “As long as I can defeat my opponents, it doesn’t matter what tricks I use. If I was really despicable, I’d have coated the needle in poison.”
Over the course of the battle, more Warriors had arrived. Many people standing off to the side, watching their fight.
Yang Tian was about to step forward once more when suddenly, a loud shout could be heard from the sky. There was a ‘whoosh’ and a massive Red Eagle descended from the sky and landed on the ground.
Yang Tian had seen this red eagle before. It was very strong, and it easily pecked the Flying Snake blind.
A man jumped down from the back of the Red-feathered Eagle.
It was Butler Wu.
After landing on the ground, Butler Wu said to Yang Tian, “Yang Tian, the Old Master has asked me to bring you home.”
Yang Tian recognized Butler Wu. Hearing Butler Wu’s words, he breathed a sigh of relief. After being hunted for so long, he could finally go home. He knew that if Grandfather Qin asked him to return, he definitely had a plan to take on Shenwei Military Academy’s Du Xiongwu.
Yang Tian did not hesitate, and smiled. “That’s great!”
Yang Tian knew that as long as he was in the air, these Warriors would have no way of catching him.
“No!” Yang Tian had just spoken when Xu Zhan exclaimed. “If he doesn’t hand over this Flying Snake’s Beast Core, he can think again about leaving. Hehe! Even if I agree, I’m assuming these fine folk would not. This Flying Snake is a Grade Eight Monster, and it had a Grade Eight Beast Core!”
Yang Tian had already given the Beast Core to Drago. They did not have to mention the Grade Eight Beast Core; he did not even have a Grade One Beast Core. However, Yang Tian did not bother explaining. Instead, he scanned the Warriors surrounding him, and said with a cold smile, “If you want the Beast Core, we’ll have to see whether or not you’re good enough!”
“Yang Tian, if you hand over the Beast Core, you can leave safely. As for the Warrior Bounty, it’s a paltry 2 billion Wus. We don’t really care.” At that moment, a large middle-aged man walked over, smiling as he spoke.
When he finished speaking, he introduced himself. “I’m a Class Six Warrior of Yangwei Military Academy, Wei Changkong.”
Yangwei Military Academy was one of the three major Military Academies in Tianxiong city, it rivaled Tianwei Military Academy in power.
When the man finished speaking, Yang Tian replied nonchalantly, “You’re a calculative one. My head is worth 2 billion Wus, while a Grade Eight Beast Core is worth hundreds of billions. If I brought it back with me and sold it, I could issue a black market bounty on Academy Master Du. I’m sure that a few Class Seven or Eight Warriors may be interested in a hundred billion Wus.”
Some of the Warriors laughed when Yang Tian finished speaking.
“Since you have a death wish, I guess I’ll oblige you,” Wei Changkong said coldly to Yang Tian. He did not pay any attention to the laughter of the other Warriors.
Apart from Xu Zhan and Wei Changkong, other Warriors of higher Class began approaching.
A Grade Eight Beast Core was very rare, and to these Warriors it was irresistible. Very few people could ignore it.
Yang Tian obviously did not have the Grade Eight Beast Core. He did not attempt to explain because even if he said that he did not have it, nobody would believe him. As opposed to wasting his breath, he might as well admit it through his silence.
Seeing more and more Warriors arrive, Yang Tian looked at Butler Wu. “Uncle Wu, it seems that I can’t leave. Please tell Grandfather Qin that I’ll find my way back.”
Butler Wu sighed helplessly when he heard Yang Tian’s words before replying, “You’re just as stubborn as the Old Master. However, I promised the Old Master I’d bring you home.”
Butler Wu flicked his wrist, and a single thread of silver appeared in his hand.
Yang Tian knew at the sight of the silver thread in Butler Wu’s hand that he was an expert at using unique weapons.
Butler Wu was a Class Six Warrior. In tandem with the Red Eagle, they could take on at least two Class Six Warriors. Yang Tian had not consumed a Grade Six Beast Core but his abilities were comparable to a Class Six Warrior. As for the opposition, there was only Xu Zhan and Wei Changkong who were Class Six Warriors. From the looks of it, it was two against three—they would win.
However, three others approached at that moment.
One of them had shockingly white hair with a massive silver saber over his back. The other was a woman clad in red. She looked to be thirty or so, and her weapon of choice were dual rapiers. The last of the trio was a bare-chested, well-built man who carried a silver spear in his hands.
“Shenwei Military Academy’s Bai Kai, Zhu Hongyu, Zheng Dalong. All three are Class Six Warriors.”
Butler Wu spoke flatly as soon as he saw the trio.
The three Warriors walked over, and the white-haired Bai Kai smiled as he said, “We’re here on the orders of the Academy Master to take Yang Tian’s head. As for the Grade Eight Beast Core on him, I advise everyone not to have their eyes on it, and just leave!”
As he spoke, Bai Kai stabbed the large saber in the ground with a dull plop.
Zhu Hongyu and Zheng Dalong stood silently behind Bai Kai, staring coldly at Yang Tian.
Now, it was more like three against five.
Yang Tian raised his sword and wiped the Flying Snake’s viscera on his sleeve as he replied calmly, “Are you all coming at me at once, or are you going one at a time?”
Bai Kai snickered at Yang Tian’s statement, and replied, “Are you even worth all of us coming at you at once?”
Yang Tian smiled. “That’s fine! One by one then!”
Bai Kai turned and spoke to the lady in red. “Hongyu, this one is yours.”
Zhu Hongyu nodded and wielded her dual rapiers as she approached Yang Tian.
When Warriors of the same Class fought each other in public, there would always be a hesitation to gang up. This was to avoid the victors being laughed at despite winning. Of course, if there was no one around, that would be another matter entirely…
At that time, they were in plain view of others. As time passed, more and more Warriors were arriving at the scene.
Most of the Warriors’ eyes were fixed on the massive carcass of the Flying Snake. Only the high-Classed Warriors would be interested in Yang Tian and the Beast Core that he possessed. This was because the lower-Classed Warriors understood that with their abilities, they were not capable of joining that fight.
In a short few months, Yang Tian had already grown into a high-Classed Warrior that others did not dare to look down on!
This was a first in the history of the Warriors! It was unprecedented that an 18-year-old youth could rise to be a high-Classed Warrior in a few short months. Even if Yang Tian died in battle that day, his name would still be recorded in history.
Zhu Hongyu slowly walked toward Yang Tian, her footsteps slow and measured. However, when she was ten meters away from her target, she suddenly whirled into motion.
Zhu Hongyu’s silhouette was like a spark flying through the air, burning as it closed in on Yang Tian.
Yang Tian pulled on the straps of his backpack. His eyes narrowed slightly as he stared down Zhu Hongyu.
The sounds of whizzing and the clanging of metal on metal could be heard.
Yang Tian suddenly sprang into motion. With one motion, he attacked like a typhoon and raised the speed of his attacks to the highest level.
As for Zhu Hongyu, she clenched her teeth and defended herself for all she was worth. She was pushed back step by step.
In Zhu Hongyu’s eyes, Yang Tian’s attacks could not last for long. When he had exhausted his energy, she would counterattack.
With a terrific sound of metal clashing, Zhu Hongyu was pushed back by Yang Tian’s blow.
Yang Tian took the opportunity to rush toward her before suddenly turning away and making a beeline for the mouth of the valley.
