Chapter 1304 – Taming the Thieving Cat
“This cat? How could it…?” The God Eye descendants lunging at the little thieving cat all widened their eyes in shock.
Lin Chengwu’s eye-bloodline technique had clearly struck the little thieving cat, but it failed to do even the smallest bit of damage. Moreover, the little thieving cat didn’t have some supreme physical defense, nor did it appear to use some profound movement technique to dodge the attack; the eye-bloodline technique simply and inconceivably passed through its body.
“Does that thieving cat not have a tangible body?” the beautiful lady murmured in shock.
The azure-robed elder’s expression dimmed as if he had noticed something.
“No, this thieving cat possesses an extremely high-level Space Intent!” Lin Chengwu solemnly stared at the little thieving cat.
He was the one who launched the attack just now, and he had the Eye of Spacetime. Thus, he had the clearest view of the situation.
On the surface, that slender spatial blade of white crystal passed straight through the little thieving cat, but that was actually not the case. The moment the white blade touched the little thieving cat, the little thieving cat used its profound Space Intent to move the white blade to the other side of its body. Thus, to outsiders, it looked like the white blade had gone in and out of the little thieving cat’s body.
This was a short-distance Spatial Shift that Lin Chengwu could also pull off. However, the little thieving cat used it with extreme proficiency, concealing it so well that those who didn’t have very high levels of Space Intent would find it nigh impossible to notice. From this point of view, the little thieving cat seemed to be even more formidable than Lin Chengwu when it came to using Space Intent.
“So that’s what was going on. This little cat really is impressive.” The yellow-robed youth examined the little thieving cat in shock.
“Hmph, if this continues, that thieving cat will eat all the cultivation treasures in the two crystal boxes!” The azure-robed elder harrumphed.
Everyone grimaced at these words. They were all God Eye descendants as well as renowned Ancient God experts. Being played around with by a cat was truly rather vexing.
But they were also Ancient Gods, with the youngest – the yellow-clothed youth – being several hundred years old. The azure-robed elder’s age could probably be counted in millions. They all had extremely sharp eyes and farsighted plans.
In comparison to the cultivation treasures, the benefits from taming this small cat would undoubtedly be much greater.
“Let this old man handle this thieving cat!” The azure-robed elder immediately charged at the little thieving cat.
“We can’t let him succeed!” The young lady appeared frantic. She naturally understood what the azure-robed elder was thinking.
“Ancient God Black Extreme?” Lin Chengwu glanced at Ancient God Black Extreme.
The moment this little thieving cat appeared, Ancient God Black Extreme fell into a deeply contemplative mood. Ancient God Profound Devil seemed to be in the same situation. He also realized that Zhao Feng had a rather strange expression.
At this moment, the azure-robed elder and a Samsara Immortal Body belonging to the young lady arrived next to the little thieving cat.
“Little cat, you’ve eaten so many of our treasures. If you don’t follow this old man, you will undoubtedly die today!” The azure-robed elder’s golden eyes exuded terrifying Destruction energy.
This pressure was focused on the soul. When confronted by this Destruction energy pressure, normal creatures would have their soul energy weaken until they ultimately yielded.
However, the little thieving cat seemed to be completely unaffected, shooting a scornful glance at the elder before hopping away to swallow up some more treasures.
“How could this be? This thieving cat can actually ignore the soul pressure of this old man’s Eye of Destruction!?” The azure-robed elder’s mouth twitched.
Zhao Feng peered with his left eye and realized that, just a moment earlier, a thin and dark film appeared around the little thieving cat’s spiritual body, completely enclosing it. It was precisely this mysterious defensive soul technique that allowed the little thieving cat to remain unaffected.
The little thieving cat didn’t know this secret art before….
“Haha, that’s not how you tame a pet!” The beautiful girl giggled.
At this moment, the young lady took control of one of her Samsara Immortal Bodies and approached the little thieving cat. The Ancient God wielding a golden sword followed the woman’s orders and said, “Little cat, if you follow my master, you will have innumerable treasures like this, and you can eat as many as you want.”
The little thieving cat impatiently waved one of its claws, as if saying, I’m eating right now; don’t disturb me.
Soon after, the yellow-clothed youth and Lin Chengwu made their own attempts to try to tame this powerful and mysterious thieving cat.
In the end, all of them were rebuffed, but they still didn’t want to give up. In their view, this little thieving cat was a creature of these God Eye ruins. It was mysterious, powerful, and possessed unique skills. They might also be able to extract important information from it by taming it.
“Let me catch it!” Incensed, the yellow-robed youth used a secret technique to try to capture the little thieving cat.
Tenacious and twisted green vines sprouted up in the nearby area and began to wind around the little thieving cat.
The little thieving cat, who was feasting on some herbs, appeared rather angry at this situation. The mysterious silver runes on its limbs suddenly flashed and twisted, and its body also seemed to undergo a subtle transformation. It became lithe and tough, bursting with strength. At the same time, everyone present once more experienced an intimidating bloodline pressure.
“What powerful bloodline energy! I have to get my hands on this cat!” The azure-robed elder was extremely excited.
The little thieving cat casually waved its silver claws a few times, unleashing countless silver blades, a dazzling storm that annihilated the vines around it.
“You’re not going to try?” The young lady looked at Zhao Feng and Ancient God Black Extreme.
Other than Zhao Feng, Ancient God Black Extreme, and Ancient God Profound Devil, everyone else was trying to tame the little thieving cat.
“This cat… is very difficult to tame,” Ancient God Black Extreme hesitated for a moment before finally saying.
The young lady nodded. From what she could see, Ancient God Black Extreme was observing the little thieving cat for any weaknesses before making his move.
By now, the little thieving cat had finished swallowing up all the cultivation treasures in the crystal boxes.
“This scoundrel! It actually ate them all!” The yellow-clothed youth was hopping mad.
This evil-faced cat was simply implacable, and none of their taming methods were of any use. And whenever they tried to take the cultivation treasures for themselves, they would be attacked by the little thieving cat.
The little thieving cat seemed to be full. It hiccupped and patted its belly.
“This cat is full now. Perhaps this is a chance to tame it!” The azure-robed elder’s eyes twinkled.
The rest of them were aching to try. The cat had eaten all the cultivation treasures, so anyone who could tame it would be the ultimate winner.
But at this time, the hitherto-silent Zhao Feng opened his mouth.
“Come here….” Zhao Feng somewhat helplessly said. This thieving had begun swallowing treasures the moment it appeared, and yet everyone else was trying their best to get on its good side.
“Haha, you think it’s going to come over if you just call out to it?” The yellow-clothed youth couldn’t help but laugh.
“Little Brother, this taming method of yours won’t work!” The beautiful girl chuckled.
But just as they finished speaking, the silver-gray cat suddenly got up.
In a silver-gray flash, the little thieving cat appeared on Zhao Feng’s shoulder and laid down.
“This…” The calm and confident azure-robed elder and Lin Chengwu were instantly dumbfounded. As for the yellow-clothed youth and young lady, they appeared to be petrified.
Ancient God Black Extreme and Ancient God Profound Devil stared in shock at Zhao Feng, countless thoughts flying through their minds.
After a long while, the azure-robed elder’s eyes flashed.
“Kid, is this your pet!?” the azure-robed elder roared in fury.
“What!?” Everyone stared in shock and disbelief at Zhao Feng.
However, based on what happened, it really did seem like the little thieving cat was Zhao Feng’s pet. This meant that ninety percent of the treasures in the crystal boxes had been obtained by this master-pet pair.
None of them could accept this.
“Zhao Feng, your pet ate all the treasures left here. As its master, you have to take responsibility for this matter!” the yellow-robed youth immediately shouted.
Lin Chengwu and the beautiful lady wanted to voice their approval, but they were also Zhao Feng’s teammates, so they didn’t make their approval too obvious.
“Seizing treasure is dependent on one’s own skill, and besides, while my pet was moving around, I didn’t even do anything, and despite that, none of you were able to outdo it. Moreover, from my point of view, you were intentionally letting it eat those treasures, with your true intent being to steal my pet!” Zhao Feng first gave a soft sigh as if looking down on their attempts, and then his tone shifted as he accused them of trying to steal his pet.
For a moment, they were all speechless. They were all cursing at themselves for not making the agreement a little earlier. If they had, Zhao Feng would have had to pay up. At the same time, all of them were also rather vexed over the fact that this mysterious and powerful cat was actually Zhao Feng’s pet.
Ancient God Black Extreme and Ancient God Profound Devil simply stared at Zhao Feng, their thoughts inscrutable.
“Let’s go!” After a long while, Ancient God Profound Devil took his team and left.
Lin Chengwu and the beautiful lady looked at Zhao Feng with unkind expressions.
“Zhao Feng, if you had this pet, why didn’t you take it out earlier…?” Ancient God Black Extreme’s voice had a tone of reproach, but he was actually probing for more information on the little thieving cat.
“This scoundrel isn’t very obedient,” Zhao Feng casually explained.
But all of them seemed very convinced by this reason.
“Let’s go as well!” Ancient God Black Extreme said, having gained nothing from his question.
“Hold on! There’s still something good here.” Zhao Feng stopped them.
“Something good?” Lin Chengwu was somewhat doubtful. If there was something good, why didn’t Zhao Feng take it for himself?
As everyone watched, Zhao Feng gathered a ball of Chaos Origin Divine Power in his hands and fired it at the edge of a ruined silver slab. After several attacks, the edge of this massive silver slab broke off, revealing what was clearly a palm.
“Is that a hand? Is there someone under there?” the beautiful girl asked in shock.
“No! It’s an automaton!” Ancient God Black Extreme said in surprise.
They all immediately remembered that the Heaven’s Legacy Race had created extremely realistic and intelligent automatons, some of them strong enough to destroy entire worlds.
“Dig it out. It might still be useful or have something we can take!” Ancient God Black Extreme called out.
