Shiro: A change of terms… Yu Long Valley > Royal Dragon Valley. This is from chapter 44.
The old cunning fox didn’t understand the matter of the tavern girl turning into the spirit of flame and smoke too. Grandma Wu Teng was also not present, so Yue Yang decided not to pursue the matter anymore.
This matter, the lesser people knew, the better.
The people inside the Main Hall seemed to have finished their discussion and reached to a conclusion.
Yue Yang didn’t know what they had discussed, but seeing that the old cunning fox was winking at him, it seemed like they weren’t discussing a bad thing.
After their long discussion, the eagle-eyed Xia Hou Wei Lie brought Fatty Hai, Ye Kong and the others back, saying that he wanted to give them a special Hell Class. Ye Kong and the others felt that their powers were far too behind Yue Yang’s and that they would only be burdens if they stayed with Yue Yang. They could only grit their teeth and followed the eagle-eyed teacher for their Hell Class. Even the previously lazy Fatty Hai had also started to work diligently, influenced by Yue Yang.
His improvement could practically pop the others’ eyes out.
Before Ye Kong left, he asked Yue Yang if he would want to participate in the Hundred Schools Elite Tournament.
Yue Yang had even killed strong Innate Rankers like Tu Cheng and Kuang Zhan, so he was initially uninterested in fighting against a bunch of school kids. But seeing how Yue Bing was hoping to see him in action, he finally nodded. Yue Bing really hoped that his brother could wash away his bad reputation of a useless trash in the country. When she saw that Yue Yang had agreed, she immediately nodded her head emotionally.
Although Yue Yang had wreak havoc in the Yue Clan’s Castle previously, the number of people who knew that Yue Yang was no longer trash and was a super strong ranker instead was not many.
Yue Bing thought that if her brother swept through the competition and won the first place, there’d be no one else in the whole world who would ridicule him anymore.
“Go to Tong Tian Tower. You should first clear the Tong Tian Tower First Floor Trial Twelve Zodiac Temples. When you have cultivated a Holy Beast, we can go and complete the World Tree Quest together. You have improved quite a lot, but shouldn’t you take care of your sister? Bring her along!” Princess Qian Qian didn’t give Yue Yang a chance to rest, forcing him to work.
“Has your level rose to Level 5?” Yue Yu was worried about Yue Yang’s level the most. If he had levelled up to Level 5 [Grandmaster], then he wouldn’t be able to enter the Twelve Zodiac Temples.
“No.” Yue Yang normally didn’t take out his grimoire during battles, hence his level was still very low. He was only a Level 2 [Braveman].
“Go then!” Princess Qian Qian had already levelled up beyond level 5 due to her daily trainings since young with her teacher. She didn’t have any chance of entering the Twelve Zodiac Temples, so she was extremely envious of Yue Yang. Of course, in order to pursue the strongest power, she had focused on cultivating her Guardian Beast, hence her strength had far surpassed her peers. Other than Yue Yang, this brat with abnormal strength, all the others were not her opponents at all.
The old cunning fox had also supported Yue Yang’s training.
He indicated that he was willing to stay behind and help Yue Yang settle the rest of the matters, and also escort Fourth Mother and Shuang-er to a safe place to stay.
As Yue Yang’s power had increased by a lot to the point that he had even managed to kill the Thousand Goblins Sect’s disciples, Tu Cheng and Kuang Zhan, the Thousand Goblins Sect would probably have no intention to attack Fourth Mother again in the meantime. After a long discussion, Elder Yue Hai, Jun Wu You and the old cunning fox had decided to send Fourth Mother into a secret and safe place for her safety. They wouldn’t let others know about her location.
As for the other things, such as the tavern girl’s families, they had also already ordered someone to bring them away to a safer place and allow them to begin a new life there. Yue Yang did not have to bother with all these.
Yue Yang really wanted to see Yi Nan and Luo Hua City Mistress, but they had both went into hiding and declined to see him.
It was as if they knew that their families had met Yue Yang, so they didn’t want to see him.
Yi Nan was a little better, she had left Yue Yang a letter saying that she would be going home for a while. She would meet Yue Yang again later during the Hundred Schools Elite Tournament. Luo Hua City Mistress, on the other hand, didn’t even leave any news for Yue Yang. Princess Qian Qian said that Luo Hua City Mistress was spending her time growing the Beautiful Demonic Flower and the Starlight Serene Indigo Grass at her home everyday, and was living a contented life. She probably had forgotten about Yue Yang completely.
As for the beautiful School Principal who looked like the mysterious beauty, Princess Qian Qian didn’t mention about her at all, as if she had never existed.
Yue Yang wanted to ask her about the other girls, but he felt that Princess Qian Qian, this tigress, was already fed-up with jealousy when she mentioned Luo Hua City Mistress. If he asked her about the mysterious beauty too, she might even turn into a berserk tigress and attack him. In the end, he decided to endure his curiosity and didn’t ask her about it. If his cousin Yue Yu and his sister Yue Bing weren’t here, Yue Yang would definitely not let go of this opportunity. This tigress was actually a really nice girl. Her body was of top-quality and her strength was also powerful. As for her temperament and character… He would just ignore that. Most importantly, this girl’s [Six Records] Inherent Skill was a threat to him. The quicker he pushed her down and made her his woman, the faster that threat would disappear.
Although her father Jun Wu You was the Emperor, and that pushing down his daughter would probably made him very angry, pushing down the tigress had already been Yue Yang’s long time wish, he would definitely not give up.
Maybe Princess Qian Qian had sensed that it would be dangerous if she stayed together with Yue Yang, hence she had purposely pulled Yue Yu to her side. She even pulled Yue Bing to her side too.
In front of his cousin and sister, it would be difficult for Yue Yang to turn into a Big Perverted Wolf.
Tong Tian Tower.
Returning to Tong Tian Tower First Floor, this time, Yue Yang felt really comfortable, having three beautiful companions with him. Previously, he had ran up the Royal Dragon Valley and was drenched in sweat. Now, he didn’t even need a teleportation scroll, he had sat on a Flying Carriage pulled by a bunch of Deer-Eagles. Furthermore, there were even dinner provided from Princess Qian Qian.
(Shiro: I’ve no idea what a Deer-Eagle is. Here’s the raws… 坐了由大群鹿鹰驾拉的‘空中马车)
“I’ve never seen such a penny-pincher like you. What are you going to do with your pile of money?” Princess Qian Qian was almost driven mad by Yue Yang’s refusal to spend a single cent.
“I’m keeping it for betrothal gifts!” Yue Yang defended himself shamelessly.
“…” Princess Qian Qian only rolled her eyes when she heard his answer. She became gloomy for a long time. As she sat on the Flying Carriage, she thought about kicking Yue Yang out of the carriage. Yue Bing had never taken a ride on this Flying Carriage that had a rental fee of 20 gold before. She was extremely happy as she looked at the amazing scenery from above. Yue Yang had flown on airplanes a lot of times before, so he didn’t think much of the slow moving Flying Carriage. Instead, he took the opportunity to read the mysterious diary that the pitiful guy’s parents had left him as the three girls chatted with each other.
Even with Level 3 [Divine Vision], he still couldn’t read through the hidden words. However, with the help of his [Traversing Naked Eye] state, he could read the information very vaguely.
In Yue Yang’s Dream Realm, under the Heavenly Sword Goddess who had turned into a big loli’s teachings, Yue Yang had also learned a type of Innate Sensing.
When he combined it altogether, he could vaguely sense the piece of information in the diary.
That piece of information seemed to be from the pitiful guy’s mother. She wrote: When cultivating a beast, it would have greater growth if it was cultivated for a longer period in each level. It would also be a good thing if the beast learn more skills and experienced more breakthrough in each level… On the contrary, levelling beasts based on strength instead of teaching new skills was a bad thing for a beast’s growth. She had also pointed out especially that a beast’s growth could be divided into five types. The first type was strength levelling. This method allowed beasts to swallow Magic Cores to level up. This was the fastest way but the most harmful way of cultivating a beast. The second type was battle levelling. This method allowed beasts to learn and level up during battles. This was the best method to cultivate a beast but the slowest and the most dangerous one. It wouldn’t be a problem for strong warriors, but for an ordinary, weak warrior with little power, allowing their beasts to level up solely with battles was practically a joke. This was because such method involved a high risk of the beast dying or become crippled during the battle. There was no guarantee for their beasts to stay alive. This method would be best for a powerful warrior who wanted to cultivate his Guardian Beast.
The third method was a combination of the first two, cultivating the beast by feeding them magic cores and participating in fights. This was a method that most warriors in the Soaring Dragon Continent had adopted. The levelling speed would be fast and this method would also cultivate beasts with stronger power. For ordinary warriors, this method was the best one, but for a strong warrior, this method was not the most optimal one. This was because the beast would reach their limits after levelling to a certain point. Other than anomalies, they would probably not be able to go very far.
The fourth method was to cultivate both the master and the beast together. As they grow together, their growth would become much stronger together. But not everyone could use this method. It was limited to their bodies’ compatibilities.
Yue Yang realized that Princess Qian Qian was using this method. Luo Hua City Mistress and the mysterious beauty were sort of using a similar method too, but they did not only cultivate one beast alone like Princess Qian Qian, who only had her Guardian Beast.
What surprised Yue Yang was that the fifth method was sort of similar to his own cultivating method.
The pitiful guy’s mother had pointed out that this method of cultivation could not be copied. The warrior must have a special type of body in order to make a ‘Spirit Blood Contract’ and turn a beast into his Guardian Beast. Then, after cultivating the Guardian Beast to Holy Beast and above, with a secret technique, the warrior would be able to evolve their beasts to Divine Beasts or even higher. Yue Yang was surprised that the pitiful guy’s mother had actually known about Spirit Blood Contract. Furthermore, he was aware that he had always been using this method to contract Beasts. However, he didn’t do it purposely. The end result was coincidentally similar to what the pitiful guy’s mother had described of the fifth method.
(Shiro: Spirit Blood Contract – refer to chapter 26)
Through the information from the mysterious diary, Yue Yang had managed to learn quite a lot of secret knowledge.
There were even more secret knowledge hidden deep inside the diary.
Yue Yang secretly sighed helplessly. If only his [Divine Vision] Inherent Skill could rise to Level 4 now, he would probably be able to read more secrets.
“The pitiful guy’s mom was definitely a very powerful person. So far, only Empress Fei Wen Li has known about the Spirit Blood Contract. If she also knew about it, she was definitely not an ordinary person!” Yue Yang sighed in his heart.
Now that Yue Yang thought about it carefully, he felt that his body must be ‘special’ because he had come from another world. He was different from the others.
Although the tavern girl had died, she had turned into his Guardian Beast and even formed a contract with him.
This was definitely impossible for a person from the Soaring Dragon Continent.
There was also the Bloody Queen, who had fused together with Phantom Shadow and became his Guardian Beast. Barbarian Cow Shadow was also a beast formed after Yue Yang used [Possession] on the Bronze Barbarian Cow. As for Xiao Wen Li, it was needless to say that she was his Guardian Beast. Her contract was drawn by Empress Fei Wen Li herself right in front of him when she was still in incubation.
There were the mysterious Golden Beast and the Reaper Mantis which was still in incubation too. They were also related to his blood!
Even the Thorny Flower Demoness liked to lick his blood…
Yue Yang thought about it carefully and felt that he should probably investigate more in this direction. Regretfully, his Level 3 [Divine Vision] still could not see through the whole bulk of information in the mysterious diary. The amount of information that Yue Yang could see from the secret diary left behind by the pitiful guy’s mother was very limited.
“What book are you reading?” Princess Qian Qian was very curious.
“Porn.” Yue Yang was afraid of this tigress’ curiosity. He immediately replied with a perverted answer to put an end to her curiousity.
Princess Qian Qian punched him, but did not say anything else. Having her sensitive [Six Records] Inherent Skill, she could tell that this brat was lying. Although Princess Qian Qian was curious about the secret that he didn’t want anyone to know, if he didn’t tell her, she wouldn’t pursue the matter. Yue Yu was blushing a little when she heard Yue Yang’s answer. As she awkwardly brush a glance on the book, she realized that Yue Yang was only holding a diary in his hands. She immediately sighed in relief, as she realized that her naughty cousin was actually only teasing Princess Qian Qian.
Yue Bing had never thought that her brother would do something bad, and she knew that her brother particularly liked to tease Princess Qian Qian. She chuckled happily. Right now, she had laughed even more times in a day than she did in a month compared to last time. She was slowly walking out of her lonely and gloomy space.
Returning to the Star’s Domain, the group went straight to the entrance of the Twelve Zodiac Temples.
Princess Qian Qian and Yue Yu couldn’t enter. They waited outside as Yue Yang and his sister Yue Bing made a party and entered the Twelve Zodiac Temples.
As Yue Yang had cleared the Aries Temple previously, this time, both Yue Yang and Yue Bing were teleported to the Taurus Temple.
“Brother, let me lead the attack!” Yue Bing decided to perform an exceptional performance in front of her brother.
“No, I have a better idea.” Yue Yang suddenly thought about the secret methods on the mysterious diary. Maybe he could use these methods on Yue Bing.
