The Venerable Monster Tamer - Chapter 13
In Chu Yun’s expectant eyes, the miniature Heavenly Fox raised its head, opened its mouth, and began to suck the Ki around.
Like a whirlwind blowing out of thin air, the Ki in the air suddenly thickened. There were all kinds of colors: the blue of water, red of fire, green of wood vitality, gold of metal, yellow of earth,…
Heavenly Fox had nine Paths: fire, earth, water, wind, earth, lightning, wind, light, and dark. The first engulfment was equivalent to building a base. Therefore, the nine energies were gathered together in the cave to form a colorful and splendid vortex.
The Ki’s movement twirled Chu Yun’s clothes, making them wave like a big flag in the wind. The expression of shock and merger surprise appeared in his eyes, as the splendor of the vortex of vitality made him feel as small as an ant. The whole cave was full of strong Ki, the scene was extremely magnificent.
These energies were originally unbalanced. However, under the adjustment of Earth Stone Coins, the environment achieved the same amount of coexistence of the nine Ki.
Heavenly Fox’s aptitude was improving steadily. But the Earth Stone Coins were consumed too fast!
Ordinary monsters had a single path, but the Heavenly Fox had nine, so the building cost was about 10 times bigger.
When Chu Yun found this problem for the first time, his face paled. In his previous life, Heavenly Fox only absorbed the fire Ki. He was preconceived and was caught off guard when the situation occurred.
Fortunately, there were still many Earth Stone Coins in his hands, thanks to the “harvest” last night.
He decisively pulled out an Earth Stone Coin and threw it into the vortex of energy. The Earth Stone Coin was rolled into the air and poured into the vortex, and it immediately produced different kinds of Ki.
Earth Stone Coin itself did not have any energy, but it could transform any kind of Ki into another.
Thanks to the adjustment of the Earth Stone Coin, the nine Ki in the cave has always been in a delicate balance.
The Earth Stone Coin was quickly consumed, and before it landed, it disappeared into the dense vortex of Ki.
Chu Yun threw coin one after another into the vortex. Heavenly Fox’s body was visibly growing up.
Chu Yun was secretly excited. In his previous life, the progress ended here, but now he could clearly feel that this was not the limit of the Perfect-grade Heavenly Fox!
Its aptitude was still increasing!
The Ki flowed from all directions to flood the entire cave. From Chu Yun’s point of view, it looked like a river of colorful air, dazzling with magnificent waves.
A large number of Earth Stone Coins submerged into the raging river of Ki and did not fall to the ground. Instead, the coins kept getting smaller and smaller and eventually completely dissipated.
Chu Yun was shaking with excitement, and could hardly believe it. Eight years to nine years, although only one year apart, was very different. Nine was the extreme number!
However, the long river of Ki still remained.
“Did it…” A thought crossed Chu Yun’s mind, making him dare not imagine, but looking forward to it. He threw out all Earth Stone Coins in his hands without regret, as if he’s throwing ordinary stones.
It’s really ten years!
Nine was the limit, ten was the transcend. If the former was mortal, then the latter was immortal.
The aptitude of 10 Years was a manifestation of Heavenly Fox’s qualifications and transcends the limits of the world. In the future, the growing potential was unlimited!
Chu Yun was completely shocked.
In this world’s history, any monster who has built a foundation over ten years has achieved remarkable achievements and became the mark of history.
“Unexpectedly, unexpectedly …” Chu Yun looked dull and muttered to himself.
In the cave, the colorful river finally disappeared and gradually dissipated. A fox with white fur and an elegant appearance showed in Chu Yun’s vision.
When it was born, it was very compact and could stay on the palm of an adult. But this time, it has grown to a normal fox size.
Its fur was like snow, as if it is satin, giving it a silky and shiny feel. Its eyes, like black crystals, were shining. At this time, it had a serious and tense expression like facing the enemy.
In the atmosphere, as if there was an invisible mountain, gave a very oppressive feeling, which made Cho Yun feel suffocated.
“What’s going on?” Chu Yun frowned. Although he had memories of his previous life, the changes at this time were too great, so he had no reference.
He keenly felt that something seemed to be happening. This was the calm before the storm.
“Look, what’s that?” In the fishing village near the unnamed volcano, someone pointed sharply and shouted in the direction of the forest.
People looked up, and suddenly there was an uproar.
“That’s it!” Someone froze.
“Tribulation cloud! Which monster has caused such a big tribulation?” Someone was inexplicably surprised.
“It’s incredible, the clouds had nine colors. Did my eyes wrong me? Is there a monster in this world that has nine paths?” Someone held his forehead in surprise and doubt.
“Chu Yun seems to be in that position. Damn it, which monster is undergoing such a tribulation? I hope it won’t cause trouble for the boy …” Old Honggun stood at the door of the salt shop, looking toward the forest. At this moment his face was full of worries.
He thought that Chu Yun’s monster egg was just an ordinary Fire Fox egg, so he didn’t associate the scene with Chu Yun’s incubation.
The beasts ran in the forest, and the birds flew away in amazement. In the sky, it’s rendered into nine radiances, which were overwhelming. A feeling of palpitations shrouded Chu Yun’s heart.
“I remember it! Heaven doesn’t accept the transcend. Nine is the extreme number, exceeding nine will trigger tribulations!” Chu Yun’s face turned white, as he remembered–every monster, when grew up to a certain stage, had to undergo tribulations.
In 9 years, 99 years, 999 years, and 9999 years, when the aptitude of monsters has accumulated to these stages, if they wanted to go further, breaking through the extreme number, will trigger tribulations. All the monsters in the world are like this without any exception.
This was common sense, and Chu Yun knew it. But he was too shaken his heart, thus he didn’t react in the first time.
“Yes, Heavenly Fox has unparalleled qualifications. When the foundation is built, it breaks through nine years and reaches ten years. Therefore it provokes the tribulation.” Thinking of this, Chu Yun was shocked with cold sweat.
Every time a monster had to undergo the tribulation, the monster tamer must be careful and fully prepared. Failure in the tribulation was equal to death to the monster.
Now Chu Yun was really not prepared at all. Could the newborn Heavenly Fox survive?
Without giving Chu Yun any preparation time, the tribulation began.
The nine colors cloud converged above the volcano. It was extremely wide, casting a circle of shadows in the air.
Even if he wanted to run now, it’s already too late.
Heavenly Fox suddenly moved, like a bolt of white lightning, rushing out of the cave. It raised its head and sang, and in the eyes of the black crystal, it was a fire fighting spirit.
Suddenly, a huge fireball, like a shell, flew down.
Heavenly Fox’s eyes flashed a sly light suddenly, and when the fireball shot, it ran quickly and plunged into a stream.
The fireball hit the water, and a loud noise burst suddenly. A large amount of water vapor evaporated and dissipated, revealing a completely dry river bed. Heavenly Fox was on the upstream shore, shaking its body and throwing water drops.
“Actually safe and sound? What a smart Heavenly Fox!” Chu Yun stood at the entrance of the cave, surprised and happy. The Heavenly Fox of the previous life has absolutely no such spirituality.
Chu Yun’s heart suddenly raised new hope: “There is a way! Although I didn’t make preparations, if Heavenly Fox has such spirituality, and then couple with my experience …”
The tribulation was the test of Heaven for monsters. Regardless of the method used, whether to hide, to fight, or to rely on others’ help, as long as the monster passed, it’s a success.
“The next one is Earth tribulation. Jump to the big tree.” Chu Yun shouted, reminding Heavenly Fox. He believed that with the aura of the Heavenly Fox, although it has not been trained, it could definitely understand his word’s meaning.
Heavenly Fox’s ears moved apparently to receive Chu Yun’s order. There was a hint of hesitation in its eyes, but it immediately jumped onto a nearby tree.
“It’s so intelligent!” Chu Yun’s eyes suddenly glowed.
After the Fire tribulation, only eight colors remained in the tribulation cloud. The yellow of Earth suddenly lighted up and quickly condensed into a round flying stone.
It flew directly toward the Heavenly Fox. At the moment of attack, Chu Yun shouted, “Jump!”
Heavenly Fox leaped forward, and the ancient tree behind was hit by the flying stone. Many branches and leaves were torn and fell down, but the flying stone was also restrained by wood, dissipating into dust.
Heavenly Fox dived into the water to evade the fireball, that’s just an instinctive action. Luckily, Water countered Fire, so it survived. But Chu Yun’s command this time has used the rich experience and wisdom of previous lives.
Among the five elements, Fire produced Earth, so he reasoned that the one after the Fire tribulation was Earth tribulation.
Because Wood countered Earth, he ordered Heavenly Fox to leap to a towering ancient tree.
It really worked.
“After the Earth tribulation is the Metal tribulation. Fire counters Metal! Heavenly Fox, goes to the crater!” Chu Yun shouted again.
Heavenly Fox heard the sound and ran away. It’s extremely fast, like an arrow left the bow, running up the mountain. Chu Yun followed.
After a period of time, the golden Metal tribulation was brewing successfully. It turned into a golden spear and stabbed at Heavenly Fox.
Heavenly Fox ran around the crater, the golden spear missed once and fell into the crater. It immediately melted by the strong fire.
Chu Yun was overjoyed. Heavenly Fox was extremely spiritual, and he had previous life experience, both of them could not be judged by common sense. In this way, they could really survive the tribulation!
