Divine Beast Adventures Chapter 104
Edited by RED
Evening came again.
A group of men, all of them riding Elephorses, were riding urgently to the west of the beast world.
The man in the frontmost was Zhang Yujie, Zhang-shao of the Ding Feng Corporation.
At this moment, a trace of shock still remained on his face, and at the same time, a hint of joy could be seen.
Over the past few days, he had been paying attention to the matter between the Tian Yin Squad and the mysterious Sun Che, and he sent out a few groups of men to nose around in the beast world. Finally, he had received some actual news on the matter today.
However, the information his subordinates reported back to him left Zhang Yujie in disbelief, leading to him personally making this trip out.
The group of about a dozen men were silent on their journey, their heads lowered as they rode out on their respective Elephorses, leaving the safety zone speedily.
The beastmasters they came across quickly got out of the way before making guesses on their own. -Could it be that the Ding Feng Corporation discovered some high quality beasts again? Otherwise, why would Zhang-dashao be personally making a move?-
After journeying for over half an hour, a broad hilly area gradually entered their sights.
Zhang Yujie asked loudly, "The Tian Yin Squad members were found dead here?"
As the Elephorses were galloping at high speed, it would be hard to hear each other if they didn't speak loudly.
A Tier Four beastmaster who was following closely behind him replied just as loudly, "Yes, Zhang-shao, but I didn't discover their corpses. I reckon they must have been eaten by the exotic beasts in the area. Only a few pieces of clothing were left on the scene, and the crossbow machines I mentioned to you previously."
A hint of bright light shone in Zhang Yujie's eyes. He asked, "Were the crossbow machines hidden properly?"
The Tier Four beastmaster nodded and answered, "Rest assured, Zhang-shao, no one will be able to find them except me!"
Soon, the Tier Four beastmaster guided them to the location where the Purple Jade Condor had massacred the Tian Yin Squad.
Looking at the still-desolate scene, and a huge rock larger than a compact car sliced into two, every beastmaster present, including Zhang Yujie, revealed looks of astonishment.
-Exactly how powerful is this mysterious Sun Che!?-
Zhang Yujie was very glad that he hadn't provoked Sun Che. The Tian Yin Squad was a very good example for those who did!
Very quickly, under the lead of the Tier Four beastmaster, Zhang Yujie and the others found the six hidden Herculean Crossbows. The group couldn't resist sucking in a breath of cold air when they saw these killing machines.
"As expected of the killing machines developed by the Shooting Sun Research Institute with their utmost efforts. I'm afraid even my subdued beast is unable to take on a bolt shot out by this thing!"
Zhang Yujie caressed one of the Herculean Crossbow, his excited eyes narrowing to slits.
With these Herculean Crossbows as research material, perhaps the Ding Feng Corporation could expand their business into crossbow machine manufacturing?
Although imitations could never replicate the full might of the Herculean Crossbow, they didn't have to worry about sales figures if their product were even half as effective. How much money might they earn then?
More importantly, if his people could successfully replicate the Herculean Crossbow, his position in his father's heart would be stabilized. Those two useless brothers of his would have no hope of threatening his position!
Thinking up to this point, Zhang Yujie actually felt grateful to the mysterious Sun Che.
"What a pity. I was actually not around when he came to Ding Feng Corporation to sell off beast cards the last time. Otherwise, I could network with him; he is a huge, valuable ally to have."
Under Zhang Yujie's instructions, the dozen or so men quickly disassembled the six Herculean Crossbows. Each of them were handed a fraction of the parts and quickly made their way back to the safety zone. It was getting late; remaining in the depths of the beast world was too dangerous!
Zhang Yujie didn't find it strange that Sun Che didn't take these Herculean Crossbows away.
With the might Sun Che had displayed, perhaps these machines didn't even catch his interest at all. Moreover, a Herculean Crossbow weighed over a hundred kilograms. Who would be willing to drag these things along when working solo?
Unbeknownst to Zhang Yujie, Zhang Che had actually been very interested in these crossbow machines. However, he discovered that these machines were too heavy, and he wouldn't be able to operate a machine by himself. As such, he decided to leave them alone.
Moreover, the Falling Star Model X which the frisky monkey was using was comparable to the Herculean Crossbow in power.
In addition, not only did he get rid of the threat that was the Tian Yin Squad in this battle, he had also gained a three-star dark gold-quality beast card. The value of such an unusable deadweight dropped immensely in his eyes, and in the end, he couldn't even be bothered to destroy them.
He considered whoever discovered these Herculean Crossbows lucky.
Four days had passed in the blink of an eye since entering the mountain range.
Zhang Che naturally had no idea that his other identity, Sun Che, had become an unfathomable, mysterious expert in Zhang Yujie's heart. At this moment, he was ordering the Gluttony Monkey to set up his tent under a cliff.
Night was approaching; naturally he could no longer go hunting for exotic beasts.
Considering that there were still powerful beasts hiding within this mountain range, he was very particular about where he set up his camp for the night.
The terrain around the foot of the cliff was very steep. With the Purple Jade Condor and the Gluttony Monkey armed with Falling Star Model X guarding him, it would truly be a high hurdle to overcome to get to Zhang Che, unless it was a powerful beast whose strength far exceeded theirs.
After a whole day of exploring, Zhang Che was tired to the bone, and fell asleep very quickly.
Unbeknownst to him, not long after he entered the land of dreams, something happened in his spiritual sea again.
When he woke up the next morning, he discovered, to his surprise, that the bronze-quality Psychedelic Ghost-Patterned Butterfly had become silver-quality.
"Did it advance in quality while I was asleep?"
Indeed, if he calculated the time, about half a month had passed since the Psychedelic Ghost-Patterned Butterfly's last breakthrough. The time required for advancing from bronze to silver-quality was about that much, too.
Zhang Che blinked a few times in quick succession. This was truly a huge surprise.
The power of the Psychedelic Ghost-Patterned Butterfly's powder were getting less and less effective when faced off against three-star bronze-quality exotic beasts and above, and was gradually losing its value.
Now that it had advanced to silver-quality, its strength had probably increased by a large margin. He didn't dare to conclude whether it would be effective against three-star silver-quality beasts and above, but the powder would definitely be able to put down three-star bronze-quality beasts!
Zhang Che raised his hand up, his palm open. The Psychedelic Ghost-Patterned Butterfly card appeared in said palm, and the updated data on this card appeared before him.
