As the old man was shouting, the black fog surrounding his body was roiling like boiling water.
All of a sudden, the air current began to compress, and the sound of air explosion reverberated.
Moreover, a gust of invisible airwave swept out and transformed into gusts of majestic and strong winds that blew in every direction when the air explosion sounded.
The plants and trees in the forest shook with the old man at the center. Birds that perched on the trees flew away one after another from the shock and disappeared into the sky.
It was unknown when a black silhouette appeared in the air above the mountain range.
“This semi-finished product doesn’t look too bad… But he’s still clinging on to old grudges. I’ll need to work on him a little bit more in order to completely control him,” the black silhouette muttered to himself, it seemed like he was dissatisfied.
“The only thing I can do now is to allow him to take his revenge… As soon as he’s done with that, his will is bound to disappear! At that time, I’ll be able to completely control his mind and turn him into a real walking dead.”
“However, his mind is muddled due to his condition… I’m afraid it’ll take some time before he finds his enemy.”
The black silhouette that appeared out of nowhere vanished again like it was never there.
Meanwhile, the old man named Zhao Ming was completely stunned as he stood in the air.
At this moment, his head was raised as he looked at the sky above his head. He was stunned, and a hint of disbelief filled his eyes. “How… How’s this possible?!”
The Heaven and Earth Energy rumbled before a Heaven and Earth Phenomenon formed in the sky.
Ancient horned dragons’ silhouettes appeared one after another. Zhao Ming was stunned as they descended majestically before his eyes.
With just a glance, he could see there were at least 7,000 to 8,000 ancient horned dragons’ silhouettes in the Heaven and Earth Phenomenon before his eyes!
“7,000 to 8,000 ancient horned dragons’ strength… This is my strength?”
At this very moment, Zhao Ming felt the majestic strength lingering in his body as shock filled his eyes. He could not help but smile.
The strength he currently possessed was a few hundred more than what he had previously!
“No… My strength doesn’t seem to come from Origin Energy. Moreover, I… can’t seem to establish a connection with my Concepts… What happened exactly?” Soon after, a wave of energy as black as ink appeared in Zhao Ming’s hand when lifted his arms. The black energy was rolling and sparkling continuously in the surroundings.
“This energy… It isn’t Origin Energy nor is it Concept… but it seems to be even more powerful than Origin Energy and Concept! What kind of energy is this?” Zhao Ming mumbled to himself as he casually pushed his palm out.
All of a sudden, the energy, that was as black as ink, in his hand turned into a gigantic palm surrounded with black fog and immediately shot out before it disappeared as quickly as it appeared.
A loud explosion echoed as gravels flew all over the place.
A gigantic and bottomless hole was created when Zhao Ming slammed his palm on the mountain wall nearby. Zhao Ming stared at his palm for a long time, even he was taken aback by the force of his palm.
“Is this my strength? Am I still… me?” Zhao Ming was completely stunned.
“No! I remember my cultivation base was damaged by Duan Ling Tian, and he destroyed my limbs as well… What exactly happened to me?” Zhao Ming looked lost as he continued to shake his head. He could not figure out what had happened.
“Perhaps this is just a dream?”
“If it’s a dream, why does it feel so real? How did I end up here? How did I come to possess such odd strength?”
Zhao Ming could not figure out anything at all even as he tried to recall them.
“Ahh!!” Soon after, a piercing pain appeared inside Zhao Ming’s head, perhaps it was due to his effort in trying to remember. He screamed from his lungs again.
All of a sudden, the screaming stopped.
At this moment, Zhao Ming’s blood-shot eyes were dimmed. It was as though they had lost their color.
Zhao Ming was like a completely different person at the moment. His eyes were lifeless, and his body emitted an extremely chilly aura. He was like a real walking dead.
Zhao Ming moved and flew out of the remote mountain range. He was flying aimlessly as though he had nowhere to be.
Three silhouettes flying in the sky came to a halt outside of the Darkhan Dynasty’s Capital.
“Brother Ling Tian, Miss Tian Wu… Both of you are really not coming over to my house?” Zhang Shou Yong asked as he looked at the purple-clad young man and red-clad lady before him.
They were Duan Ling Tian and Feng Tian Wu who had followed Zhang Shou Yong back to the Darkhan Dynasty.
Although Duan Ling Tian and Feng Tian Wu had to follow Zhang Shou Yong’s speed, it did not take them too long to arrive in Darkhan Dynasty.
“Big Brother Zhang, you should go back and be with your wife… You don’t have to worry about us. Are you worried that we’ll encounter danger in Darkhan Dynasty?” Duan Ling Tian smiled as he shook his head.
“That’s not it… It’s just that I feel Qiong and I should thank you properly no matter what since you’re helping her fix her Dantian,” Zhang Shou Yong said earnestly.
“Big Brother Zhang, it’s really kind of you to say this… But we’re going to make a move now.” Duan Ling Tian left as soon as he finished speaking.
A red silhouette similar to a fire elf trailed after Duan Ling Tian like his shadow. Zhang Shou Yong’s smiled wryly, and he shook his head as he watched both of them disappear before his eyes.
“Brother Ling Tian and Miss Tian Wu are a match made in heaven since they’re both like wind and fire…” Zhang Shou Yong shook his head and smiled before flying up into the sky toward to Capital. He landed when he arrived above a spacious estate, his movement was as smooth as flowing water.
Zhang Clan Estate!
When Zhang Shou Yong landed, he ignored the servants’ judgmental eyes and rushed excitedly into a compound.
It was the residence he used to live in with his wife, Wang Qiong.
“Big Brother Duan, are you going to look for Xiong Quan?” Feng Tian Wu, who was next to Duan Ling Tian, asked curiously.
“Let’s not rush into visiting Xiong Quan, we’ll follow the proximity principle… Let’s drop by Clarity City first!” Duan Ling Tian said as his eyes gleamed.
“Clarity City?” Feng Tian Wu nodded. Although she had no idea why Duan Ling Tian wanted to go there, she was considerate and did not probe any further since she knew Duan Ling Tian had his reason for wanting to go there.
It was just like what Feng Tian Wu had thought, Duan Ling Tian, indeed, had his own reason for going there.
He was going to Clarity City to look for a person.
That person was Hu Li!
The name Hu Li was a little unfamiliar to the current Duan Ling Tian.
However, he would never forget this name.
He remembered not long after he entered the Seven Star Sword Sect, he encountered a small team from Seven Star Sword Sect when he was testing out the Quake Energy in the primeval forest behind the sect.
There was a total of three people in the small team. They were Hu Li, Shi Lan, and Shao Fei.
Shao Fei was the vicious one, he tried to sabotage Duan Ling Tian many times while they were in the primeval forest. However, his plan failed. Instead, things took a turn in the other direction, and Duan Ling Tian had severely injured and almost killed him.
If Hu Li and Shi Lan’s did not beg for mercy on behalf of Shao Fei, he would have surely killed Shao Fei.
However, that was just the beginning of the disaster.
Later on, Shao Fei got his brother to avenge him. Due to that, Shi Lan died when she fell off a cliff, and Hu Li’s leg was severed!
Although he killed both Shao Fei and his brother to avenge Shi Lan and Hu Li, it was impossible to restore Shi Lan’s life and Hu Li’s severed leg
However, he could heal Hu Li’s leg now that he possessed the Immortal Spirit Herb.
He still remembered Hu Li had someone tell Duan Ling Tian that his home was the Hu Clan Estate in the Clarity City before he left.
Clarity City was a medium-sized city.
After asking around, Duan Ling Tian and Feng Tian Wu finally arrived in this unfamiliar city.
Clarity City was just a small city to them since they had left Darkhan Dynasty and had seen the world outside of the Foreign Lands.
When they arrived in Clarity City, Duan Ling Tian asked for the direction to the Hu Clan Estate and brought Feng Tian Wu along with him.
“Hu Li? Do you mean Sir Li? It’s too bad, but Sir Li returned to the Seven Star Sword Sect a couple of months ago when he found out the sect was being rebuilt. He wanted to contribute to the sect.”
At the Hu Clan Estate’s entrance, Duan Ling Tian learned of Hu Li’s whereabouts from a Hu Clan member. He did not expect Hu Li would return to the Seven Star Sword Sect.
“Since both of you know Sir Li, are both of you Sir Li’s friends?” The Hu Clan member asked.
“That’s right.” Duan Ling Tian nodded.
“Since both of you are Sir Li’s friends, you can stay at our Hu Clan Estate for a few days… When I inform the Patriarch about this, he’ll get someone to inform Sir Li at the Seven Star Sword Sect,” the Hu Clan member said again.
“It’s alright… We’ll look for him at the Seven Star Sword Sect.” Duan Ling Tian shook his head and left Clarity City with Feng Tian Wu in tow as they headed toward the Seven Star Sword Sect.
He was surprised by what he saw when they arrived at the Seven Star Sword Sect.
Compared to that time when he left the Seven Star Sword Sect, there were major changes in the sect. It had flourished.
‘This Mo Yu fellow did a great job.’ Duan Ling Tian could not help but compliment inwardly.
Duan Ling Tian did not notify anyone about his trip.
After he informed Feng Tian Wu, he changed into the Seven Star Sword Sect’s inner court disciple’s clothes he used to wear, and he entered the main peak of the sect, Dubhe Peak.
“Hi there, Senior Brother, do you know where Senior Brother Hu Li is?” Duan Ling Tian asked an inner court disciple, who looked like he was approximately thirty years old after he entered Dubhe Peak.
“I bet you’ve only just joined our Seven Star Sword Sect, right?” The inner court disciple looked at Duan Ling Tian as though he was a fool.
