My Special Ability is Perfect Replication Novel - Chapter 111
Chapter 111: Its Name is Celeste, Komodo Dragon
“Over there, about twenty-six Goldenback Bullwolves!”
Three minutes later, the Goldenback Bullwolf pack was exterminated.
“A group of Goldenhorn Ants are four kilometers away from here. There are about thirty-three of them!”
Five minutes later, the Goldenhorn Ants were exterminated.
“A huge number of Bloodthirster Red Ants are six kilometers away. Those things look appetizing!”
Six minutes later, the colony of Bloodthirster Red Ants was wiped out.
Mob hunting mode started as Ling Jiu brought two girls deep into the wilderness to target Class-Six Direbeasts.
It took the team an average of fifteen minutes to kill a group of Class-Six Direbeasts. In a day, they killed ten groups of these Direbeasts, over three hundred of them.
It stunned Yang Ling-er and Ai Yuhe. They did not know that Class-Six Direbeasts could be killed this way.
Being small fries in Ling Jiu’s team, they got no chance to kill Direbeasts themselves. Even if they had, they could not outdo Ling Jiu.
Ling Jiu’s action was so quick that he killed Class-Six Direbeasts as if he were chopping vegetables.
What was that?
With the ability to teleport himself instantly, the more Class-Six Direbeasts available out there, the more brutal and efficient his killing would be.
The two girls finally figured out why Ling Jiu always got the top spot, and his score was always one million points more than the one behind him.
At Ling Jiu’s speed, leading by over one million points was a piece a cake.
Previously, when Ling Jiu said he just was taking it easy, they believed him. They knew he was not trying to show off, but it was just the way he was.
That night, the three of them had their hearty dinner together on the airship. Ai Yuhe was the chef while the Ling siblings helped. Five dishes—two meat dishes and three veggies—and a soup were a perfect match for the fragrant rice.
“How many arcana do you have, really, Ling Jiu?”
Over the dinner, Ai Yuhe finally asked the question that had been baffling her for a long time.
“You have shown Metal and Fire Manipulations, and Teleportation abilities in the battle earlier today. Coupled with Gravity Arcana, Earth Manipulation, and Tungsten Form, you have six arcanas. Why do you have so many arcana?”
“If you really want to get to the bottom of things, I am going to leave you out of this!” Ling Jiu glanced at her. “Aren’t you not happy with the current arrangement—making light work of things and getting a handsome share of the harvest?”
Ai Yuhe was upset, really wanting to stand up and bang the table and walk out to show that she had backbone. But she back downed at the thought of the top three positions that were already at her fingertips.
Yang Ling-er was laughing her head off on one side.
“See, Ling-er, you brother is bullying me. You just sit by and watch?” Ai Yuhe pouted.
Just then, there was a cat meowing. The two girls stopped talking abruptly. As they turned their eyes towards the sound, they saw a Celestial Magical Cat.
The two girls got to their feet abruptly, face pale. “Gosh! A Celestial Magical Cat! It’s a Celestial Magical Cat!”
“Damn it! How could a Direbeast as terrifying as the Celestial Magical Cat appear here?”
Ling Jiu tried to calm them down with a smile. He then got up and walked towards the Celestial Magical Cat.
“Don’t go over there, Ling Jiu!”
“Come back, Ling Jiu!”
The two girls called out anxiously.
“It is all right.”
Ling Jiu gave them a smile, walked up to the Celestial Magical Cat, and patted it on the furry head under their watchful eyes.
The Celestial Magical Cat seemed to enjoy his pampering as it licked his hand affectionately.
“What is going on here?”
The jaws of the two girls almost dropped to the floor. Was this really a Celestial Magical Cat, not a domestic one?
“This is my cat.”
Ling Jiu grinned as he tore open a pack of nutritional dried meat. Once he put the nutritional dried meat in the bowl that he had specially prepared for the Celestial Magical Cat, it started gobbling up the things.
After that, Ling Jiu came back to his seat and continued his meal.
“W—what is going on, Ling Jiu?”
Ai Yuhe’s face still looked pale. “Why is a Celestial Magical Cat ranked seventy-second on the Direbeast list so close to you? What have you done?”
“It finds me handsome, I guess.”
She was momentarily speechless to Ling Jiu’s reply.
The arrival of the Celestial Magical Cat frightened the two girls. Even when they saw it cozy up to Ling Jiu, it still terrified them. They felt uneasy during the entire dinner time. They went back to the room as soon as they finished their meal. Not for one second did they want to stay.
Ling Jiu cleaned up the dining table, took a shower, and then lay on the bed. The Celestial Magical Cat jumped over and got up next to Ling Jiu.
“Stay here, Celeste. I need your help tomorrow.”
Ling Jiu rubbed the furry head of the Celestial Magical Cat with a smile.
The cat nodded its head like an obedient child.
Ling Jiu smiled, pleased with its response.
Class-Seven Direbeasts were highly intelligent. But Class-Eight Direbeasts were even smarter. They were no less intelligent than humans. It was said that Class-Nine Direbeasts could talk like humans did.
So Ling Jiu was not surprised that the Celestial Magical Cat could understand his words.
Ling Jiu named the cat Celeste—its last name was Ling.
Early the next morning, after three of them had breakfast, they set off at once. Today, Ling Jiu was not looking for Class-Six Direbeasts. He was scanning for the Class-Seven Direbeasts.
“Why are you looking for Class-Seven Direbeasts, Ling Jiu?” Ai Yuhe asked in surprise.
“I am bored with killing Class-Six Direbeasts. Let’s try Class-Seven today!”
Ling Jiu stared at the radar screen nonchalantly.
“C-C-Class-Seven Direbeasts? You are kidding, right?”
Ai Yuhe was trembling. “That is the lord of all Direbeasts. Are you sure we can kill them? What if we get ourselves killed?”
“That’s why I hire a super bodyguard!”
Ling Jiu smiled, pointing at Celeste lying on the bed. “There is nothing to be afraid of with his protection.”
Looking at the Celestial Magical Cat, Ai Yuhe gulped. ‘Why would you let another Direbeast to protect us while we hunt Class-Seven Direbeasts? You must be kidding me!’
“It just so happens that there is a Class-Seven Direbeast up ahead! Let’s try it.”
Ling Jiu woke up the sleeping Celestial Magical Cat. “Get up, Celeste!”
The Celestial Magical Cat was not so happy when Ling Jiu woke it up from its dream. But when Ling Jiu caressed its head, its grumpiness went away.
A lake appeared below. The water was turbid, and under an enormous tree near to the lake lay a hideous behemoth.
The behemoth was over 60 meters long, as large as a bus. Its body was covered with dark brown bumps. Its head was big, with fangs in its mouth and foul-smelling mucus dripping down its teeth.
It was Komodo Dragon, a Class-Seven Direbeast.
Whether in Eastern or Western culture, dragons are synonymous with power and terror. So any beast that can be called a dragon is absolutely terrifying!
Komodo Dragon, a Class-Seven Direbeast unique to Australia.
The Direbeast lord that claimed to have ‘absolute defense’, ‘absolute power’ and ‘absolute venom’ was undoubtedly very terrifying in the world of Class-Seven Direbeasts.
“I will go in the front while you two lie in waiting. You know the drill.”
Ling Jiu issued a combat command, “Celeste, you can just hide and stand by. Unless I am in danger, you don’t need to intervene. Do you understand?”
“Take this, Ling’er.”
Ling Jiu handed a pinch of purple, almost transparent flames to Ling’er. “You can control the five elements, but you don’t have a weapon. Use this first!”
“I am going now!”
