“Of course I mean it.” Duan Ling Tian smiled slightly and lifted his arm to retrieve the Immortal Spirit Herb he obtained from the Martial Emperor’s secret treasure. He plucked a leaf from the Immortal Spirit Herb and put it into Zhang Shou Yong’s hands.
“What’s this?” Zhang Shou Yong wore a doubtful expression on his face when he looked at the odd leaf sparkling with a green glow that Duan Ling Tian gave him.
Although he figured the leaf might help his wife, Wang Qiong, fix her Dantian, there was a hint of disbelief in him.
This was because it was too unbelievable!
Just one of the three leaves on the strange herb could help his wife fix her Dantian?
Was that possible?
“This will help your wife fix her Dantian,” Duan Ling Tian said as he smiled. “Big Brother Zhang, don’t underestimate this leaf… One leaf’s powerful enough to revive a dead person and grow flesh on bones! Even a person with disabilities will grow limbs if they consume this leaf!”
“What?!” Zhang Shou Yong’s expression changed drastically when he heard what Duan Ling Tian said.
There were shock and disbelief in his eyes when he looked at the leaf that was sparkling with a green glow in his hand.
‘Could this leaf revive a dead person and grow flesh on bones?’
‘Could people with disabilities grow limbs after consuming it?’
At this moment, even Feng Tian Wu who was standing next to Duan Ling Tian was shocked. She could not help the change of expression on her beautiful face.
Although her Big Brother Duan had always been a miracle maker to her, she still felt shocked after she heard about the terrifying medicinal efficacy of the leaf in Zhang Shou Yong’s hands.
Zhang Shou Yong’s chest heaved as his breathing quickened. He regained his senses after a while, and asked Duan Ling Tian with a burning desire in his eyes, “Bro – Brother Ling Tian, what kind of herb is this?”
Zhang Shou Yong had full confidence in Duan Ling Tian’s words.
However, he could not help but feel shocked. What kind of herb had such a powerful and terrifying medicinal efficacy?
“It’s called the Immortal Spirit Herb, it’s considered a legend in the Cloud Continent… I didn’t expect to find it in Qing Feng Palace,” Duan Ling Tian said with a smile.
“Immortal Spirit Herb?” Zhang Shou Yong and Feng Tian Wu’s eyes lit up when they heard his words.
Just the magical name of the herb showed it was not an ordinary herb.
“You even found a legendary herb… Your luck is just crazy!” Zhang Shou Yong exclaimed.
There was a hint of excitement in the depth of Zhang Shou Yong’s eyes.
For years, his wife, Wang Qiong, could not cultivate due to her Dantian. It had always been a concern of his.
Now that there was a chance for his wife to heal her Dantian and began cultivating again, he felt an excitement from the bottom of his heart.
He could finally erase the concern he had for years!
“Thank you, Brother Duan Ling Tian.” Zhang Shou Yong sincerely thanked Duan Ling Tian.
The gratitude came from the bottom of his heart because Duan Ling Tian gave him such a precious herb.
“Big Brother Zhang, do we need to be so polite to each other? If it wasn’t for you back in the Ancient City of Everlast of Azure Forest Imperial Kingdom, I would’ve been dead years ago. I wouldn’t have been able to achieve what I achieved today,” Duan Ling Tian said as he shook his head.
“Brother Duan Ling, that’s all in the past… It’s a small matter and not worth mentioning,” Zhang Shou Yong said.
“Big Brother Zhang! Perhaps it’s a small matter to you… But to me, you saved my life! I need to return the favor by many folds. Even more so because you saved my life. Doesn’t that make sense?” Duan Ling Tian solemnly said.
If Zhang Shou Yong did not save his life back then, he would have died, let alone achieved all that he had.
“Alright, let’s not talk about this anymore.” Zhang Shou Yong changed the topic when he saw Duan Ling Tian turning serious. “Brother Ling Tian, are you going to heal Xiong Quan’s Dantian by using the Immortal Spirit Herb when you return to Darkhan Dynasty?”
Zhang Shou Yong clearly remembered Xiong Qian was the middle-aged man who was by Duan Ling Tian’s side back then.
Back then, his Dantian was broken by someone at the Eternal Jade Restaurant that the couple established.
“Yes.” Duan Ling Tian nodded as his eyes gleamed. “Back then, his Dantian was broken because of me… It’s my responsibility. Healing his Dantian can be considered as me returning the favor.”
He could not forgive himself for what happened to Xiong Quan.
“Brother Ling Tian, don’t overthink things… I could see Xiong Quan did not blame you. Moreover, Xiong Quan’s open-minded. I believe he’s been living well all these years even without Origin Energy.” Zhang Shou Yong comforted Duan Ling Tian.
“Hmm.” Duan Ling Tian nodded, he hoped things were like what Zhang Shou Yong said.
Duan Ling Tian lifted his arm and put the Immortal Spirit Herb away in his Spatial Ring.
The Immortal Spirit Herb he had in his hand originally had three leaves. Now that he gave Zhang Shou Yong one, he was only left with two leaves.
After Zhang Shou Yong put the Immortal Spirit Herb’s leaf that he treated like a treasure away in his Spatial Ring, Duan Ling Tian and the other two continued on their journey to Darkhan Dynasty. They were traveling at lightning speed.
“Brother Ling Tian, which level of Qing Feng Palace did you obtain the Immortal Spirit Herb from?” Zhang Shou Yong asked inquisitively while they were traveling.
He was very curious about where Duan Ling Tian obtained such a legendary herb.
Feng Tian Wu heard Zhang Shou Yong and looked at Duan Ling Tian curiously as well.
“The first level,” Duan Ling Tian said. “When I arrived at the first level, I appeared at the back of a corridor… There were many stone rooms you could enter along the way. However, the sculptures outside would attack once you enter.”
“And if you leave the stone room, the sculptures would return to where they were and cease their attacks.” Duan Ling Tian found out about the second part from Huang Daniu.
At the Qing Feng Palace’s first level, each and every one of the sculptures that attacked him after he entered the stone rooms were destroyed by him.
Therefore, he had no idea the sculptures would return to their position if he had left the room.
“We had the same experience,” Zhang Shou Yong said.
Feng Tian Wu nodded, her experience was similar too.
“I found the Immortal Spirit Herb at the end of the corridor at Qing Feng Palace’s first level that was connected to the central stone room at the second level… As long as you’re able to defeat the three young powerhouses who were arranged to fight you, you would be able to enter and continue on to Qing Feng Palace’s second level,” Duan Ling Tian said.
He still remembered the stone room was called the One-in-Four Stone Room.
“I didn’t manage to get there… I was arranged to fight with a North Nether disciple.” Zhang Shou Yong forced a smile on his face.
Perhaps his talent and ability could be considered good in a third-rate force, but he was just mediocre in a second-rate force like North Nether Sect.
Almost all the North Nether disciples who had entered the Martial Emperor’s secret treasure were the outstanding ones in the current North Nether Sect. He was far behind compared to them.
“I went into that stone room… But I didn’t see the Immortal Spirit Herb. I only obtained a grade one spirit weapon that gives an 89% boost,” Feng Tian Wu said.
A grade one spirit weapon with 89% boost was the best of the best among grade one spirit weapons. It was just slightly lesser than the grade one spirit weapons Duan Ling Tian could refine.
Duan Ling Tian was not surprised when he heard what Feng Tian Wu said.
The Immortal Spirit Herb was a legendary medicinal herb after all. It was impossible for it to appear in every single One-In-Four Stone Room.
He had figured it out earlier.
It was due to sheer luck he was able to obtain the Immortal Spirit Herb.
“Tian Wu, what did you go through when you were at the second level?” Duan Ling Tian continued to ask.
Soon after, he learned about Feng Tian Wu’s journey in Qing Feng Palace from the bottom level and all the way up. However, there was nothing about the giant wooden figure on the second level.
In other words, Feng Tian Wu did not encounter the mysterious Inscription Formation that combined the broken wood in the corridor into a giant wooden figure or the odd stone platform on the second level.
‘Seems like it’s similar to the Immortal Spirit Herb… The odd stone platform’s one in a million! Of course, it’s possible Tian Wu did not activate the Inscription Formation on the stone platform at the second level,’ Duan Ling Tian speculated on his own.
‘The rest are similar… At the fourth level, Tian Wu could only retreat since she did not force herself to perform the Fire Profundity when she encountered the Earth Energy that was equivalent to 1,500 ancient horned dragon’s strength on the Bumpy Road,’ Everything was similar to his speculation.
‘Bang! Bang! Bang! Bang! Bang! ‘
Loud explosions came from somewhere as Duan Ling Tian and the other two continued on their journey to the Darkhan Dynasty.
Within a remote mountain range in Darkhan Dynasty, loud explosions suddenly sounded from a dark mountain cave. The mountain range shook intensely as though heaven and earth were falling apart.
After the tremors, an old man with black fog emitting out of his body flew out of the mountain cave.
The old man’s eyes were bloodshot and emotionless.
Suddenly, the old man lifted his arms and held his head. He began to scream as he bent over in pain.
The old man’s voice was heartrending. It was as though he was being tortured.
“I… I’m Zhao Ming! I’m Zhao Ming! Yes… I’m Zhao Ming!!”
“Seven Star Sword Sect… Azure Forest Tri-Sect… Duan Ling Tian… Yes! It’s Duan Ling Tian! He’s my enemy! He’s my enemy!!”
“I’m going to kill him! I’m going to kill him!!”
Finally, the old man stopped screaming as he stood upright again. His eyes were red and filled with killing intent as he looked around, seemingly lost.
“Where’s this place?” The old man frowned and tried his best to remember. However, he discovered he could not remember anything.
“Duan Ling Tian! I’m going to kill you! I’m going to kill you!!” Soon, the old man quit thinking and shouted from his lungs with a somber face.
There was hatred and violence in the old man’s voice when he screamed.
