Reigning Supreme With Pets - Chapter 35
In the room, Qin Feng held the Heaven Swallowing Toad in one hand and the spiritual flying sword Gilded Executioner in another to examine, feeling absolutely satisfied.
Spiritual equipment. The entire Qin family had only gotten a few of them over the years.
Although that was partially due to the Qin family putting most of their resources into spiritual beasts, it still showed the rarity of a spiritual tool.
However, that flying sword was made by the Huang family’s grand elder. He would never use it in front of the Huang family. If he was discovered by the Huang family, they would never let him off scot-free.
Moreover, he could not afford to have his father help sell the items off this time because he had yet to join the Beastmaster Sect. It would be difficult to explain how he subdued the Heaven Swallowing Toad.
Nevertheless, it did not matter. After he joined the sect for some time, he could publicly sell Gilded Executioner to someone else.
Although the disciples of the Beastmaster Sect would mainly focus on controlling beasts, it did not mean that they would not use magical tools. It was just that they placed more importance on spiritual beasts compared to magical tools.
Even if the Gilded Executioner was a low-grade spiritual flying sword, it was still worth several hundred spirit stones. Moreover, the surface of the flying sword was golden and shiny, giving it an excellent appearance, leaving him with no worries about presentation.
Apart from the Gilded Executioner, he had also acquired the Huang family grand elder’s hammer and furnace used for tool refining. On top of that, he had also obtained quite a large amount of materials used for spiritual tool refinement.
He made a rough estimate. If all those items were sold, it would at least get him somewhere between three to four thousand spirit stones.
Most importantly, it was due to the value of the refining furnace. Even if it was just a mid-grade spiritual tool, it was a special spiritual tool with a value that could match a high-grade spiritual tool.
However, that item could only be sold to a tool refiner. It had a lesser market compared to a high-grade spiritual tool.
Although he had the urge to, Qin Feng did not take the refining hammer and furnace out. Instead, he had the toad place those items in the Demon Refinement Kettle in case the Huang family’s grand elder traced it to him via his connection to the items.
The subspace within the Demon Refinement Kettle was even greater than the subspace within the toad’s body. Huang family’s grand elder was only at the Foundation Establishment Stage. However, even if he managed to become an immortal, he might still not be able to sense it.
Qin Feng happily stored the Gilded Executioner away.
With these resources as a foundation, he immediately felt a lot more comfortable. Otherwise, with only the support from the family, he would be only slightly better off than those regular disciples without the backing of a family.
After all, the Qin family was not a large one. It was impossible for them to give him several thousand spirit stones as cultivation resources.
After caressing the smooth and shiny skin of the toad, Qin Feng let out a satisfied laugh.
It was not a bad deal to have subdued the Heaven Swallowing Toad. Although it was a glutton, it had an innate ability of spatial control, enabling it to suppress the demonic energy to a set area around itself.
Because of control over its demonic energy, it was very misleading. Unless under detailed scrutiny, it would be very difficult to notice its abnormalities.
That was the reason why it could wander around to swallow spiritual beings without being murdered by the other demon beasts.
With its aura hidden, it would already be at a very close distance by the time its opponents discovered it. That allowed it to ambush them easily.
The toad’s stomach bulged and its mouth let out a light gurgling sound.
Due to their consciousness being connected, Qin Feng understood it.
That fella was asking him for food.
Qin Feng forced a smile.
He had barely praised it and it was already asking for food.
He shook his head helplessly. It had just done a good job and a reward was required.
He took out all the spiritual fruits given to him by his clansmen at the spiritual orchard.
Seeing those spiritual fruits, the toad immediately croaked in joy. It then opened its mouth wide and coiled its tongue around the fruits, taking them in one after another.
Right then, Qin Long’s footsteps could be heard coming from outside the courtyard.
He walked in excitedly and said with a smile, “Feng’er, good news! Have you heard? The Huang family’s Sword Crafting Valley was burglarized. Last night, someone broke into Sword Crafting Valley. Not only did that person steal all the refining materials they purchased with a high price, even the refining furnace that was passed down in their family was stolen as well. After totalling all the items lost, it’s worth several thousand spirit stones.
“Haha, the Huang family will be suffering a huge setback this time. After all, they had to pull quite a few strings and almost emptied their coffers to purchase those refining materials. All that was just to have that grand elder of theirs to refine a few more spiritual tools to sell for a profit. However, they did not expect to have such an accident happen.
“Hmph, I want to see how they plan to nurture that Huang Yulang.
“Feng’er, the Huang family’s next generation is done for. When you join the Beastmaster Sect, you must cultivate diligently. If you can achieve the Foundation Establishment Stage within twenty years while the Huang family had no cultivators that advanced in cultivation, our Qin family might just get our chance to have our revenge from before. We can even take the opportunity to rob the Huang family of their mines and further grow our family’s strength.”
At that, Qin Long’s eyes flashed viciously. “One hundred and twenty years ago when our Qin family were stuck in a tough spot, the Huang family almost obliterated us. If not for our patriarch having successfully advanced in cultivation and brought a few helpers back, our Qin family’s assets would have been taken by the Huang family. Now that the Huang family’s grand elder is advanced in age, he won’t hold out much longer. As long as their next generation fails to grow, that would be the chance for our Qin family to have our revenge.”
Qin Feng replied, “Dad, relax. I’ll definitely train diligently and try my best to advance in cultivation.”
Regarding the peril their family faced a hundred years ago, it was not the first time he heard of it from his father or the senior members in the family.
Only by reinforcing their teachings through example could they ensure the future generations of the family to not forget about the dangers and train more diligently under pressure.
Hearing his son’s answer, Qin Long nodded in satisfaction. AFter that, he looked left and right curiously. “I thought I heard the croak of a frog earlier?”
Qin Feng did not know how to respond right at that moment and the atmosphere turned a little awkward.
Qin Long looked at his son’s awkwardness and came to a sudden revelation. “Were you practicing a toad’s call?”
Qin Feng followed along shamelessly. “I was just feeling mischievous and…and…”
He really could not bring himself to finish the sentence.
Having to admit to croaking like a toad at his age would be really embarrassing if others got news of it.
“Haha, it’s fine. My son is still young after all. It’s only normal that you’re playful.”
Seeing that his son still looked like a naive teenager, Qin Long could not help but let out a hearty laugh.
This son of his had been behaving maturely since young and would rarely fool around. He did not expect his son to still have the heart of a child.
Seeing his father looking at him with that pampering gaze, Qin Feng felt flustered. He was being treated like a child.
However, it was fortunate that his father was not one for gossip and would not tell others of his embarrassing moments.
