Chapter 752: Rapid Growth

Su Ping stopped passing knowledge right then and there.
The Void Bug was also one of his pets, but he had never trained it much; he had only signed a contract with it because he was curious about that special insect that had once invaded the Demigod Burial.
The bug would feed on the gods and was quite usual. However, Su Ping had never studied its other potentials nor did he send it to battle; it was unnecessary to pass knowledge to it yet.
As for the white-scaled Vast Sky Thunderous Dragon, it was a recent acquaintance; he didn’t know whether to keep it as a pet yet.
He had only captured it for the system mission.
Although its aptitude wasn’t bad since it was a mid-level wild beast, Su Ping already had a Inferno Dragon.
He had vowed to train the Inferno Dragon so that it would become the strongest dragon in the world!
Su Ping was aiming to deliver on his promise and wasn’t interested in other dragons. Even if he got one, he wouldn’t spend too much time and effort on it.
After all, if he did manage to find the additional time and effort needed, he might as well invest them on the Inferno Dragon to make it stronger!
The quality of pets rather than their quantity was what really mattered. He wouldn’t consider getting more pets unless it was impossible to further improve the pets he had.
However, Su Ping was still far away from reaching the limits of what his pets could achieve.
“The Pet Aptitude Book can increase the aptitude by one level, right? If I apply it to the Purple Python, will it enter the Chaos Multiverse Ranking?” asked Su Ping.
“The Pet Aptitude Book can only increase the pet to the ultra-high level,” replied the system.
Su Ping’s eyes widened and he asked, “Shouldn’t there be a one-level improvement?”
“That is exactly a one-level improvement.”
Su Ping was gobsmacked by the answer. But still, he realized that it would still be quite horrifying if the ultra-mid level was upgraded to the ultra-high level. The Purple Python would probably get a few powerful skills.
However, since it was impossible for his pet to enter the Chaos Multiverse Ranking, giving it the book was not quite the best choice.
Even if its aptitude was improved to the ultra-high level, it would only have a Star State combat ability.
Su Ping considered for a moment and decided to save it until the Little Skeleton returned.
So far, the Little Skeleton was his strongest pet. He wasn’t biased towards it; he had to strengthen his best pet for his own safety.
It was just like the edge of a saber; it had to be the sharpest part. The Little Skeleton was Su Ping’s edge.
After pondering a bit more, Su Ping decided to return to the temple with Joanna.
Then, he set off from the temple and went to a dangerous place in the Demigod Burial with a Star State God Warrior.
Su Ping commanded the white-scaled Vast Sky Thunderous Dragon and the Green Alligator to charge at an Ocean State beast in that place; the creature had absorbed some divine energy and had become some sort of a semi-divine beast.
The beast could unleash a combat ability close to the Void State when it made use of the divine energy.
The Green Alligator was quite brutal, decidedly charging at the enemy. However, it quickly lost its ferocity when the beast roared at them.
That flinching moment was enough for the beast to get close with the air of divinity and a much higher speed; it slapped the Green Alligator in the head and tore off part of its scalp.
The agony and the intimidation robbed the Green Alligator of its fighting will. It turned around in panic and fled.
As for Su Ping’s command… They had just signed a temporary contract; the creature was only partly loyal to Su Ping. It became furious when Su Ping basically asked it to kill itself; it no longer obeyed him.
The killing intent skill was activated!
Su Ping pointed with his finger from a distance.
The crazily fleeing alligator suddenly had bloodshot eyes and erect scales. It roared furiously and charged at the beast.
The latter was slightly surprised, not expecting its prey to suddenly become that fierce.
However, you dare to fight back?
I’m going to kill you!
The nearby ninth-rank drakeling didn’t back off; it released various lightning skills to block the beast’s attack.
The fierce Green Alligator was torn to pieces. The beast then roared when it saw the drakeling, since it was still casting skills.
The roar was quite intimidating, but the white-scaled Vast Sky Thunderous Dragon didn’t stop attacking after shivering for a moment. It looked even more ruthless.
Su Ping slightly nodded as he watched the battle.
The young dragon was even more relentless than the Green Alligator, perhaps because it had been intimidated by the dragon king before.
The young one was not as scared when facing the Ocean State beast, which was far weaker than the dragon king.
The wild beast felt it had been severely insulted when its roar didn’t awe its enemy. It became even more furious and quickly took action. A rock spear rose from the ground and pierced through the white-scaled Vast Sky Thunderous Dragon like a mountain.
Su Ping instantly revived both of them and commanded them to continue fighting.
The young dragon was obviously stunned. Then, Su Ping’s command came; the dragon turned around and looked at Su Ping. Then, it thought of what had taken place in the Thunderous Woods.
Its father had blocked the hunters on its own to protect it.
Its mother begged desperately for its safety.
It had never felt more helpless or devastated before.
The drakeling roared crazily, determined to become stronger!
It was determined to become stronger!
The drakeling charged forward even more bravely than the Green Alligator, doing so without the boost of Su Ping’s killing intent skill. It was covered in dazzling lightning that tore apart the space around it; that was in fact a bloodline ability unique to the Vast Sky Thunderous Dragons.
That dragon race was congenitally familiar with space; they could understand it and directly enter the Void State when they became adults, as long as their brains were normal.
At this moment—
The white-scaled dragon was only in the ninth rank, but its move had already shaken the surrounding space; the skill hit the beast through space like a flash.
The skill struck and injured the enemy, but it didn’t cause any heavy wounds.
The beast roared in shock and fury; it abandoned the Green Alligator and charged at the Vast Sky Thunderous Dragon.
Flash, dodge and attack!
The young dragon showed great battle prowess, quickly dodging the beast’s attack and continuing with a flurry of attacks.
The Green Alligator was obviously surprised by the strength of its shorty comrade, especially since its level was too low!
Exactly at that moment, Su Ping used his skill and filled its head with killing intent.
The Green Alligator also roared and charged out.
Five minutes later.
The place gradually became quiet when the battle ended. The white-scaled Vast Sky Thunderous Dragon and the Green Alligator had worn the beast to death. The little one had perceived the mysteries of space after the battle; it could have broken through to the Void State if it had enough cultivation. It would have been a great battle pet outside!
Su Ping saw that its aptitude had been improved from the mid level to the mid-mid level.
One fight had produced a minor improvement.
Su Ping gave a slight nod. He intended to train the dragon to attain a high level aptitude.
The young beast had a great power of understanding. Su Ping would have chosen it as his main pet but he already had the Inferno Dragon; they had developed a deep bond.
He could only train it as a substitute pet for the moment.
Su Ping had quite a few pet positions anyway. He could keep it until he found a more suitable pet.
Space trembled after finishing off the Ocean State beast, then a Void State beast stormed out.
Right on time.
Su Ping instantly asked the pets to keep fighting. He also asked the Dark Dragon Hound, the Inferno Dragon and the Purple Python to look for other beasts.
If they wanted to exercise, they could only look for the peak Fate State or Star State beasts.
There were also a lot of exotic fruits in the place.
Many gods in the Demigod Burial would collect the fruits, but that place was so dangerous that they might accidentally get killed even though the fruits were great.
Su Ping was simply collecting the unusual flowers and fruits he saw on the way, while the training progressed.
He directly gave most of what he collected to the Dark Dragon Hound and the Inferno Dragon, even if some of them were lethal.
The pets could be revived even if they were killed anyway. If eating the fruits once would get the pets killed, they could keep on eating them until they became resistant and were able to absorb them!
Some of the fruits that the frost beasts loved contained a powerful ice energy. The Inferno felt quite uncomfortable after eating some of them; still, it was later able to perceive some water skills after the digestion.
As for the remaining fruits, Su Ping would take them back and sell them in his shop.
However, Su Ping had soon realized that pet food was not nearly as profitable as the training services. That was another reason why he preferred giving the precious pet food to his pets instead of selling it.
He preferred forgoing some of the possible profit if they could be strengthened by the fruits.
A day passed by.
The Green Alligator had already been trained until it reached the mid-level aptitude.
Even though it was only an Ocean State creature, it had understood the mysteries of space along with the young dragon. It could flash through the secondary space!
It could also use skills to hit the enemy through the secondary space.
Such results proved that one could make faster progress by following a top student…
While the white-scaled Vast Sky Thunderous Dragon’s aptitude was still mid-mid, it was even more familiar with the mysteries of space. Su Ping trained it as his secondary pet. He would take it to future training sessions, and its aptitude would reach a high level sooner or later.
Su Ping returned to his shop.
He then went to the Demigod Burial again, this time with the other Vast Sky Thunderous Dragons he had caught.
Since there were ten of them, he could only take them in with two batches.
Su Ping had chosen the Void State dragons for the first batch.
All of them were quite surprised to see the drakeling, since it was a huge scandal in their clan.
Leishan—the dragon king’s child and the strongest warrior in the clan—had mated with a lowborn serpent and given birth to a crossbreed.
The white-scaled Vast Sky Thunderous Dragon was exactly as it was claimed to be: a lowborn crossbreed.
The young beast was also surprised to see fellow clansmen. However, it didn’t have time to catch up with them; it quickly started fighting again.
The drakeling was even more ferocious in the next round of battles and was making progress even faster!
The other Vast Sky Thunderous Dragons were shocked by its performance; they didn’t expect that the inferior hybrid could be that brutal!
It was only a ninth rank creature, but it already had the strength to resist a Void State beast for half a minute!
It was almost unbelievable!
