1349 The Master Thief

    After running for almost two hours, Jiang Fei could not stand it anymore. He had also realized something-they were walking in circles!

    "Ugh, I don't wanna run anymore..."

    Jiang Fei slumped to the ground, as if throwing a tantrum.

    "Get up, kid. We're not there yet!"

    Theon returned to Jiang Fei's side in an instant and kicked his butt. Jiang Fei rolled his eyes in response.

    "Nonsense! We're obviously just walking in circles!"

    After spending some time with Theon, Jiang Fei knew that he only had good intentions and even liked him quite a bit, so he did not stop himself from speaking casually.

    "Not bad, kid. You're pretty smart!"

    Theon was not embarrassed at all that Jiang Fei had exposed his trick. Instead, he just kicked his butt again.

    "Why did you kick me..." Jiang Fei rubbed his butt, but he did not dare to fight back.

    After all, Theon was too strong. He was so strong that there was no guarantee that the 10th Dimension would work on him.

    "Okay, since you've found out, we'll stop walking in circles. Let's head there right now," said Theon as he grabbed Jiang Fei's shoulder and lifted him.

    "Hey, hey, can't I walk by myself?" yelled Jiang Fei.

    "You're too slow."

    Theon laughed loudly, then started running at full speed. Jiang Fei could only feel the gushing wind slapping against his face and he could not see clearly at all. The view on either side of him was almost unreal.

    Two minutes later, Theon stopped running and placed Jiang Fei back down.

    "We're here," said Theon.

    "This is..."

    They were near a small hillock surrounded with overgrown weeds. It did not look like a treasure vault at all.


    Theon waved and the original holographic projection was removed. A huge metal door appeared on the mountain wall.

    Jiang Fei was startled. "He hid it this well?"

    "Hoho, no hidden treasure vault can escape my eyes!" boasted Theon.

    "Being skilled at breaking into treasure vaults... is that something to be that proud of?" said Jiang Fei with a sneer.

    Theon raised an eyebrow. "Hey, what's wrong with such a skill? Don't you think it's good?"

    "No!" Jiang Fei shook his head seriously.

    "Then, if I offer to teach you this skill, will you learn it?" asked Theon suddenly.


    Jiang Fei's eyes sparkled as he nodded eagerly. If he learned this skill, wouldn't he be able to steal lots of good stuff too? Theon laughed heartily.

    "You're so shameless, you remind me of myself when I was your age!"

    Jiang Fei hurriedly urged Theon, "You said you would teach me. Don't go back on your word!"

    "Okay! Since you want to learn, I'll teach you, but under one condition."

    Theon laughed again. Having taken a liking to Jiang Fei, he had already been planning to accept him as an apprentice from the beginning. So, now that Jiang Fei himself wanted to learn from him, Theon naturally agreed.

    "What condition?" asked Jiang Fei.

    "If you want to learn from me, you must stop intentionally killing," said Theon.

    Jiang Fei froze. "I can't kill anymore?"

    "Well, to be precise, you're forbidden from intentionally killing any intelligent beings. Of course, if possible, try to not even fight with others!" added Theon.


    "These are the rules of our Sect."

    Theon did not explain further.

    "Oh!" said Jiang Fei, nodding.

    He'd heard about this from Alexis. Theon had been ambushed several times while trying to steal, but he easily escaped every time, and he never fought with anyone.

    Jiang Fei was not surprised that Theon had always been able to escape. With his strength, he could destroy the entire Valsalrian Army all by himself. Who could stop him? However, it was weird how he never fought back even when he was ambushed. Theon had way too many secrets.

    "What if it's not intentional? Or rather, if it's my last resort?" Jiang Fei accurately grasped the loopholes.

    "Of course, there can be exceptions if you're being threatened or if it's an emergency. What I mean is that you're not allowed to use your powers to willfully kill other intelligent beings," said Theon.

    Jiang Fei nodded immediately. "That's fine with me. Deal!"

    After all, he was not warlike and bloodthirsty like the Valsalrians or the Decronians. As a human being, he yearned for peace. Although he was used to fighting and wars, it did not mean that he was a savage.

    "Alright then. Starting from today, you'll be my apprentice. Will you accept this offer?" asked Theon seriously.

    "Yes, Master!"

    Overjoyed, Jiang Fei immediately bowed to Theon.


    Theon was delighted. After all, Jiang Fei was very talented, and it was difficult to find someone as kind and as reluctant to kill among the Valsalrians.

    Theon wasn't the only one who was happy, Jiang Fei was too. He had been deceiving people for a long time by relying on the fictional Zhuge Shanzhen. As a result, Jiang Fei had been living in fear of his secret being exposed, afraid of the disaster that would surely follow.

    Now, he had finally found someone, and an incredibly powerful person at that, who would really support him. Of course, Theon was not invincible, but it would be difficult to find someone as strong as him. After all, he had managed to tame an Ultralisk, a feat that only very few people were capable of.

    "Since I've accepted you as an apprentice, you're free to tell the world that I'm your master, but you must never reveal my true strength to others!" Theon warned Jiang Fei strictly.

    "Why, Master?" asked Jiang Fei.

    "No reason. Just do what I say!"

    Theon waved, motioning for Jiang Fei to stop asking questions.

    Jiang Fei nodded. "Okay!"

    Although he could not reveal how powerful his master was, the mere mention of Theon's name was already enough to scare away the entire Valsalrian Army.

    While Jiang Fei and Theon were talking, the huge metal door in front of them suddenly opened... and two people walked out. Both were Valsalrians. They had pink, textured skin and bright heads. It was hard to tell how old they were.


    Jiang Fei panicked. Having come here as a thief, he naturally felt afraid by this unexpected run-in with the owner of the treasure vault he was planning to steal from.


    The two Valsalrians were also surprised. When they saw Jiang Fei, they did not really react. However, after they saw Theon, their faces instantly fell.

    "Go! Go! Go!"

    The first Valsalrian lowered his head and pretended like he did not see Jiang Fei and Theon. Then, he dragged the other Valsalrian who was behind him and trotted away. Jiang Fei was frozen in shock and confusion.

    "What's going on? Are they thieves too?"

    "The one in front was Aino, don't you know him? The one behind him was his son," said Theon, shrugging nonchalantly.

    Jiang Fei couldn't help but praise Theon in his mind, "What the f*ck... the owner of the treasure vault immediately ran away upon seeing him. Theon the thief is amazing!"
