Chapter 1350: Training and Testing
"Aino was actually scared away by a thief? How embarrassing seems like hes not that powerful. Hes just using his position to bully his subordinates."
Jiang Fei could not help but start to despise Aino.
In actuality, Jiang Fei had gotten the wrong idea of Aino. As a high-ranking Valsalrian that owned a sector, Aino was top in both strength and intelligence. Although he did not deal with the death of his beloved son very well, he was definitely not the kind of person that liked to bully his subordinates.
He ran away as soon as he saw Theon because Theon was way too evil. Many have tried to catch him. Even a group with dozens of powerful fighters with tens of millions of combat power could not catch him, and Theon ended up getting revenge on all of them.
Their treasure vaults have been looted for several years, which meant that their life savings have been cleared out. Who wouldnt feel sad about that?
Since there was no way to stop Theon, why would Aino stay behind? Was he supposed to stay and watch Theon steal his stuff? Rather than seeing it with his own eyes, Aino felt that he would be better off not knowing the details. So, leaving with his son was the most reasonable thing to do.
"Come on, lets go in."
Theon pointed at the metal door in front of them. Aino did not close it when he left with his son, because he knew that even if he had ten thousand locks, he still would not be able to stop Theon the thief.
"Okay!" said Jiang Fei, following Theon into the treasure vault.
Theon stomped his foot after entering and a shock wave radiated out, completely destroying the treasure vaults defense system.
Considering how strong he was, Theon would normally not destroy the defense system. However, Jiang Fei was with him today. Although Jiang Fei had around five million combat power at his full potential, it was still too dangerous for him to enter a treasure vault of this level.
With Theons one move, the entire place was immediately left defenseless, allowing Jiang Fei to easily follow him into its core.
"Youre only allowed to take three things. Dont be greedy."
Since Theon had accepted Jiang Fei as an apprentice, Jiang Fei had to abide by his rules. However, Aino was out of luck. Theon had already planned to take three items. Now that Jiang Fei was here too, Aino would lose another three items.
Theon looked for a place to sit and wait for Jiang Fei to tidy up the treasure vault.
"Ill leave it to you."
Things were different for Jiang Fei this time. As the thiefs accomplice, he had been very nervous back when they were in Alexis treasure vault. Now, however, he was Theon the thiefs apprentice. When they came to steal, the owner of the treasure vault immediately left without a word. This made Jiang Fei feel extremely smug.
Jiang Fei happily looked through the treasures, determining the value of the items through the goggles that Theon gave him. These goggles were of much better quality than his previous ones. The information stored in it was more detailed, so this helped Jiang Fei increase his knowledge while he rummaged around.
As a high-ranking member of the Valsalrian Army, Ainos collection was much more high-end than that of Alexis. Compared to Ainos, Alexiss treasure vault was as shabby as a waste station.
"D*mn it! All of these items are good. How nice it would be if I could take all of them away!" Jiang Fei muttered to himself while he looked through them.
"Hey kid, you have to obey my rules as my apprentice. In the future, even when you become a master yourself, you cannot be greedy. Otherwise, dont blame me for kicking you out!" said Theon, giving his new apprentice a serious warning.
Jiang Fei nodded quickly. "Yes, Master."
With so many valuable treasures before his eyes, Jiang Fei gained a lot of knowledge while going through them. It was almost like a training program. Since Jiang Fei had to withstand the temptation of taking all the treasure, this significantly increased his determination.
Ainos treasure vault was not only huge, but it also housed a huge collection of items. Jiang Fei took three entire days to look through the whole place. Theon only sat quietly by the side, without moving or talking.
Throughout the process, since Theon was always meditating with his eyes closed, 0541 had suggested on several occasions that Jiang Fei secretly store a few treasures in the Spatial Ring. However, Jiang Fei did not do it.
He did not dare to do so because he was a little afraid that Theon might catch him. He hadnt even learned anything from Theon yet. Even if Theon did not punish him and just expelled him, it would still be a loss.
Secondly, deep down in his heart, Jiang Fei was someone of integrity. Although these treasures were tempting, Jiang Fei had promised that he would abide by Theons rules, so he would not go back on his word.
After three days of work, Jiang Fei finally finished sorting all the treasures into different categories.
"Im done, Master."
Theon simply took the three most valuable ones and left the rest alone.
"These three are mine. You can take another three."
For Theon, these treasures had no meaning at all. Owning a Galactic Specter was already enough for him to dominate the universe. Other than for fun, he only stole in order to suppress the Valsalrians, to let them know that there was always someone better than them.
He made Jiang Fei organize the treasure vault to both train and test him. Jiang Feis knowledge would definitely soar upon going through so many treasures. And if Jiang Fei could withstand the temptation and still abide by his rules, this showed that he did satisfy the condition and truly deserved to be Theons apprentice.
Jiang Fei nodded eagerly. "Okay!"
While going through the collection, he had already picked out the items he wanted. This time, Jiang Fei also chose based on the purpose they could serve.
Creed Battle Uniform
Type: High-strength armor
Note: Can protect the wearer from high temperatures and can effectively prevent energy attacks of up to seven million combat power. A Vulcan specialty. The best combat clothing in the universe, sells for about fifteen million Aetherytes.
The new goggles could not only display information about the items, but also provide details on their origin and price. Aetheryte was a hard currency used between the civilizations in the universe. It was similar to what gold was to the humans on Earth.
Jiang Fei chose this armor for a very simple reason. He was timid and afraid of death. Although he had Theon supporting him now, there was still a chance of him being killed instantly if he encountered a strong enemy.
With this combat uniform, coupled with the effect of his Bio-Armor, Jiang Fei would at least have the chance to activate his Domain during surprise attacks. This would remove the risk of him being killed instantly.
After picking out an armor, Jiang Fei picked a weapon for himselfPsiblade. This was a high-technology weapon. Although it was not as lethal as the Zhanlu Sword used to kill the Latair Reaper, it was a lot better than the ordinary Chengying Sword.
Moreover, it was easy to carry around as it was worn like a gauntlet. When used, a light blade would directly pop out of it. It was lethal enough to break energy shields formed of up to six million combat power.
