Astral Pet Store - Chapter 337
Chapter 337 See You at the Finals
“Well, soon . ”
Su Ping could not answer this question before that day . However, the system had just given him an assignment . If he could become an elementary trainer, and if he made use of the cultivation sites, he might actually increase the aptitude of one of his pets to become first-rate .
The system was not fooling him .
He had been brutally training his pets in a way that technically anyone could . Indeed, he was not a trainer .
But, the store had been upgraded to LV3 and the system had only issued this mission at the moment to remind him to become a trainer . This had come too late . At this thought, Su Ping could not help but inwardly complain about the system .
“Host, please behave,” the system cautioned him coldly .
Damn you! Eavesdropping again!
Su Ping filed his teeth .
“Soon?” Qin Shaotian looked at Su Ping . The latter’s indignation confused Qin Shaotian . Even after his shock had worn off, regarding the dragon’s actual rank, Qin Shaotian was still in disbelief .
No kidding . He would have bought it if Su Ping said the dragon was at the seventh-rank . Sixth-rank? That was outrageous!
A sixth-rank dragon had defeated his eighth-rank Bloody Servant?
I am no fool, you know?
“Yes, soon,” Su Ping eventually came back to his senses and repeated his answer, “I will post information on the store’s website . Be sure to check it . ”
Qin Shaotian was speechless . Su Ping couldn’t even give him a definitive answer . ‘Be sure to check it’ . Why didn’t you simply say you won’t provide the service?
Qin Shaotian’s doubt was rooted deep in his heart . No advanced pets? Huh, if the dragon had been trained there, then there must be a top-level master trainer present, one who could train ninth-rank rare pets, let alone a seventh-rank Wind Siren .
Of course, he could not force Su Ping to take his pets . “All right . I hope I can find good news from you within a month,” Qin Shaotian said .
A month later, he would leave the Longjiang Base City to further his study in the best academy in the Subcontinent District .
He didn’t say this to Su Ping, though . He did not need to leak this information to irrelevant people, in case he stirred up a hornets’ nest .
Su Ping nodded . It was also his wish to complete the mission within a month .
Right then, he heard people outside the store screaming in surprise .
Su Ping looked up and saw many people in line turning their heads . Someone had shouted out, “It’s Su Lingyue!!”
Su Ping was just wondering what had caused the huge sensation, only to see that it was that girl showing up after waking up and having had breakfast .
As for why he could tell that she had already had breakfast, it was simple . Given his eyesight, he could see the limbs of an ant within a hundred meters . He was able to spot the oil stains near the corners of her mouth . In their family, their breakfast usually had three items and she had surely eaten the deep-fried dough stick!
“It’s Su Lingyue!”
“Oh my god . It is her! Am I right?”
“That horrifying dragon is with her, in that contracted space . ”
“Geez, she looks better in person than on TV . She is so young . People say that she’s still a student . I think that is true!”
The people in line were exclaiming in excitement .
They were looking at Su Lingyue with admiration, treating her as a superstar .
Su Lingyue was taken aback by the huge reaction . She knew that she had become famous . And yet, being recognized and surrounded like this was still startling to her . She ran to the counter with a blushed face .
“Here, your breakfast, congee, and salted vegetables . I’ll get you more if you want . ” Su Lingyue put the thermal container on the counter . “Thanks . ”
Su Ping pushed the container to the side . For the moment, he had no time to eat it . He couldn’t enjoy his breakfast while leaving his customers to wait . He had to finish his business first .
“Eh, aren’t you…?”
Then, Su Lingyue noticed the tightly-wrapped Qin Shaotian who was standing in front of the counter . She wouldn’t have noticed him if it weren’t for his eye-catching and strange look .
After she noticed the odd dude, she took a closer look, only to see that she was familiar with this person . After all, they had spent time together on the stage . Soon, she realized who this man was . She was both surprised and on alert . What is he doing here? Trying to make trouble?
Out of instinct, she stepped forward and put herself between Su Ping and Qin Shaotian .
Qin Shaotian was gazing at the girl as well .
His eyes were fixed on her .
He had already graduated from his previous academy and had skipped a grade . He had never tasted failure during his time in the academy . After graduation, he continued being a leader amongst his peers . He never took any of the young masters from other major families in Longjiang Base City seriously . How shocking, for him to lose to this girl, a nobody!
While Qin Shaotian knew that his defeat had little to do with the girl herself . It was her pet that was too powerful . That being said, she was the master of her pets . Losing to her pet was losing to her! “I will see you at the finals,” Qin Shaotian said coldly . Su Lingyue raised her eyebrows . “That is if you can make it to that match . ”
Qin Shaotian snorted but said nothing else .
Someone suddenly cried out in surprise . Then, a man dashed into the store . Customers only saw a blur and they saw another person by the counter .
Customers were surprised when they were able to clearly see this person, once again . They would have never imagined that other than Su Lingyue, they would have been able to see Xu Kuang at the store; it was another outstanding participant . Xu Kuang still had a chance to win a place in the Top 10 . During his battle with Liu Qingfeng, Xu Kuang’s performance was a feast to the eyes . He had pressed Liu Qingfeng so hard that the latter had to resort to his strongest skills .
In that battle, not only had people witnessed what Xu Kuang was capable of, they noticed how terrifying Liu Qingfeng was as well .
Xu Kuang lost to Liu Qingfeng eventually . But the stunning thing about Xu Kuang was that he used only one pet while Liu Qingfeng used three battle pets that all had high-rank bloodlines . Anyone else could have been crushed by the three pets . “Well?” Qin Shaotian looked at this young man . Qin Shaotian left for home after he finished his match the day prior, but he did watch the live-stream on his way back home . He remembered the young man well because he was well-matched for Liu Qingfeng . But Qin Shaotian believed that Liu Qingfeng had not used his full strength yet or else he would have won against Xu Kuang with a larger margin .
This person’s battle pet is strange in that its rank and strength do not match . Could it be… Qin Shaotian thought of a possibility .
“Teacher, why aren’t you at the venue today!” Xu Kuang kept on cottoning Su Ping up .
Su Ping didn’t even bother correcting how Xu Kuang addressed him . “She’s not competing so we don’t have to go . Why are you here? Don’t you want to watch the matches?”
Xu Kuang smiled, “I thought I could go with you . Since you are not going, then I won’t, either . There’s nothing to see anyways and I can watch the match at home . Besides, I trust you, teacher . If you say I can make it to the Top 10, then I’m sure I will!”
Teacher? Qin Shaotian noticed the word Xu Kuang used .
Xu Kuang had demonstrated marvelous abilities but he called Su Ping teacher?
Soon, Qin Shaotian understood . Su Ping was powerful and even Qin Shuhai was praising him .
Su Ping rolled his eyes at Xu Kuang . “You bought my service but your pet cannot win for you if you’re too much of a loser . You would have lost your chance if you were any bit less lucky yesterday and were assigned to a group where two people were more powerful than
you . ”
Xu Kuang’s neck shrank because of Su Ping’s lecturing and he scratched his head . “You’re right . That Liu Jianxin was falling on evil days but I’m not him . I am blessed . You know what people say: the boys who smile often are blessed with good fortune . ”
Both Su Ping and Su Lingyue were speechless . This Xu Kuang was both scatter-brained and shameless .
Su Lingyue darted a look at Su Ping . All of a sudden, she felt they did look like a teacher and student pair, because they were both dead to shame!
Su Ping noticed her gaze and understood the meaning in her look . He returned the gesture with a glare .
Only then did Xu Kuang notice Qin Shaotian . Xu Kuang burst into laughter after being dazed for a moment . “Who is this? Are you suffering from any kidney deficiency? Why else would you wrap yourself up so tightly on a hot day?”
Qin Shaotian: “…”
At the same time, people behind Qin Shaotian began to press him . “Dude, leave if you have nothing else to do here . We’ve been waiting for a long time!”
That person didn’t sound friendly . Clearly enough, he had been putting up with Qin Shaotian’s dawdling for a long time . Qin Shaotian kept chatting and chatting at the counter without spending any money, not to mention the psychopathic outfit . What is wrong with him!
Qin Shaotian pulled a long face and cast a cold glare at Xu Kuang . “Don’t let me see you on stage!” “Well, well, you should try to reach the Top 10 if you want to meet me on stage!” Xu Kuang shouted .
Su Lingyue eyed Xu Kuang with admiration . What a bold guy .
Qin Shaotian turned around and left, with one last sentence to Su Lingyue, “I will wait for you at the finals!”
With that said, he waved his hand and left right away .
Xu Kuang watched as Qin Shaotian walked away and asked, “Who was that lunatic?”
Su Lingyue said, “The person I fought against yesterday . ” “You fought?”
Xu Kuang was about to say that she had fought many people the other day when an idea came to mind . There was only one person that Su Lingyue fought against the day before, someone who could wait for her in the finals . Qin Shaotian who had already made it to the Top 10!
“No kidding!” Xu Kuang almost jumped up . It was him?
The freak who mastered the Bloody Servant?
What was he doing here?
Su Lingyue found Xu Kuang’s reaction amusing . She laughed for a while and then went to the test room to train . “Teacher, was that really…?” Xu Kuang asked nervously .
Su Ping nodded . Xu Kuang was making too big of a deal . It wasn’t like Qin Shuhai would eat him .
A moment later, Xu Kuang suddenly threw himself to the counter and begged, “Sir, I have an unreasonable demand!”
“Since it is an unreasonable demand, then don’t bother,” Su Ping replied .
“If so, I want to train my pet again . ” Xu Kuang sounded sad .
“No problem . Go and stand in line . ”
