“I’ve no idea.” Duan Ling Tian forced a smile as he shook his head.
Although his miserly father left the exquisite jade box for him, he had no idea what it was or what was in there.
However, there was one thing he was certain of.
He was sure his miserly father would include information about the other continent on the other side of the deep sea in a Voice Transmission Jade Slip in the exquisite jade box.
Naturally, there would be other things apart from the Voice Transmission Jade Slip in the exquisite jade box.
Duan Ling Tian had a strong feeling about that.
‘Perhaps I’ll be able to open it when my cultivation base has broken through to the Martial Monarch Stage,’ Duan Ling Tian thought to himself.
“Let’s go, Tian Wu,” Duan Ling Tian said to Feng Tian Wu, and they continued on their journey to Xiong Quan’s hometown. They were headed there to look for Xiong Quan and fix his Dantian.
“Yes.” Feng Tian Wu nodded obediently as she quietly trailed after Duan Ling Tian like his shadow.
Soon after, they found Xiong Quan’s hometown through Duan Ling Tian’s memory when he sent Xiong Quan home. It was located in a remote little village in the mountain range.
Although the little village was remote, the livelihood was good.
When Duan Ling Tian and Feng Tian Wu arrived, they saw the scene of men farming as the women weaved in the village. There were also children playing happily.
“If I could spend the rest of my life with the person I like here… I would consider my life well lived,” Feng Tian Wu mumbled softly as she looked at the village. Her beautiful lips were slightly parted, and there was a hint of tenderness in her eyes that seemed capable of melting everything.
“It makes sense that you would think that, but they probably wish they possess a powerful ability so they could go out and see the world,” Duan Ling Tian said with a slight smile.
The way they thought was naturally different since they were in different positions.
Feng Tian Wu was born with a silver spoon in her mouth, and she was the precious one in her family. It was only natural for her to be emotionally touched when she saw that scene in the village.
However, the villagers probably wished to be like Feng Tian Wu who possessed a powerful ability and had the opportunity to venture out into the world.
They did not even dare to venture too far from the village due to their inability to protect themselves.
Feng Tian Wu only realized that Duan Ling Tian heard her murmurings when she heard what he said in response. Her beautiful cheeks blushed ruddily as though blood was going to drip out.
Duan Ling Tian became mesmerized when saw Feng Tian Wu’s shy and lovely face. He was tempted to get closer to her and give her a big kiss on her beautiful cheek.
Duan Ling Tian took a deep breath and suppressed his restless emotion. He quickly took the lead to descend from the sky as he said to Feng Tian Wu, “Let’s go.”
Feng Tian Wu was inwardly excited when she saw the passionate look in Duan Ling Tian’s eyes. She could not help but sigh as she watched Duan Ling Tian descend upon the village as though he was running for his life.
“Still a piece of log.” Feng Tian Wu looked at that big, purple silhouette a little angrily and moved like a fire elf as she trailed after him like his shadow.
Duan Ling Tian’s wind-like movement was similar to a goshawk landing as he arrived before the villagers in the village.
The first person who noticed Duan Ling Tian was a little boy who was four or five years old. He exclaimed excitedly as he watched Duan Ling Tian hovering in mid-air, “Woah! He can fly!”
It was as though the little boy had discovered a whole new world.
“I heard from my dad that only powerhouses at the Void Prying Stage or above could fly and hover in the sky… It seems like he’s a powerhouse above the Void Prying Stage!” A young lady who looked thirteen or fourteen years old said.
“A powerhouse that’s above the Void Prying Stage? Then isn’t he as powerful as Uncle Xiong Quan?” A little boy of seven or eight years old exclaimed out loud.
As opposed to the naive kids, the faces of the adults who noticed Duan Ling Tian changed as fear appeared in their eyes.
They looked at Duan Ling Tian as though they were looking at some destructive beast.
Their way of thinking was simple. Theoretically, such a powerhouse would not deign to come to their village. Nothing good would come out of Duan Ling Tian’s arrival at their village.
Soon after, a gleam flashed in a villager’s eyes, and he quickly left. It seemed like he was going to inform someone about what just happened.
Meanwhile, a group of adults’ eyes gleamed when they saw a red-clad lady appearing next to the purple-clad young man hovering in mid-air.
The red-clad lady had a graceful body and a beautiful face. Their bodies turned as stiff as logs, and they were mesmerized by her beauty.
“She’s so beautiful!”
“Is that a fairy?”
“Miss Fairy is descending from heaven!”
The group of adults was not the only ones attracted by the red-clad lady, even the children who were playing in the village had stopped to stare at her.
The adults were also blatantly staring at the red-clad lady.
They spent all their lives in this remote little village where they were self-sufficient and did not have to venture out of the village.
Where would they have a chance to see such a beauty?
“Tian Wu, the kids are calling you Miss Fairy,” Duan Ling Tian said to Feng Tian Wu with a slight smile as he looked at the group of innocent kids.
Feng Tian Wu’s cheeks flushed again when she heard what he said.
“Who are the both of you?!” Somebody suddenly shouted from the back of the village.
An agile body like a cheetah followed after the fierce scream. It entered the village in seconds and glared fiercely at Duan Ling Tian and Feng Tian Wu.
“Hmm?” A big, young man about twenty years old appeared before Duan Ling Tian.
The young man had a pair of thick eyebrows. Although there was fear buried deep in those eyes under the thick eyebrows as he glared, the young man stood upright and held his ground.
There was admiration in Duan Ling Tian’s eyes at the moment.
“Eh… This young man looks a little familiar.” Duan Ling Tian who was observing the big, young man sensed a familiarity in him. It felt like he had seen him before.
‘This is Xiong Quan’s hometown. I’ve only been here once when I sent Xiong Quan back years ago… This young man is around twenty years old so he should only be twelve or thirteen years old back then.’ Duan Ling Tian thought about this, and his eyes lit up.
He was stunned as asked the big, young man, “A-are you Er Hu?!”
As soon as Duan Ling Tian said that, the group of adults, including Er Hu, was stunned.
“Eh! This brother who came with Miss Fairy seems to know Brother Er Hu.”
“Brother Er Hu’s so amazing! Even this flying brother knows him.”
“That’s because Brother Er Hu’s the only powerhouse who has left this village with Uncle Xiong Quan to explore the world!”
The children in the village wore a dramatic expression on their faces.
“You… You know me?” The big, young man named Er Hu looked at Duan Ling Tian with confusion written on his face.
“What? Er Hu, you’ve forgotten about me?” Duan Ling Tian smiled. “I remember you were only twelve or thirteen when I came to this village with Xiong Quan… You even invited me for a meal at your house.”
Er Hu narrowed his eyes when he heard Duan Ling Tian’s words.
‘I invited this person to my house for a meal when I was twelve or thirteen?’
“You… You’re Big Brother Ling Tian?” Er Hu finally recognized Duan Ling Tian after browsing through his childhood memory. He could not help but reveal an excited expression on his face.
Over the years, he had listened to Xiong Quan talked about things this purple-clad young man had done.
This purple-clad young man had already possessed the Eight Level Origin Core when he was Er Hu’s age.
Er Hu had always treated him as his idol.
Now that he met his idol again, how could he not be excited?
“He’s Young Master Ling Tian?” At this moment, many villagers who heard what Er Hu said recalled the distinguished guest they had years ago.
Even the No.1 powerhouse in their village, Xiong Quan, had to address this guest as Young Master.
“It’s really Young Master Ling Tian!”
“It’s been so many years, Young Master Ling Tian did not change at all.”
“Yes, Young Master Ling Tian’s still so young.”
The fear in the villagers’ eyes was long gone. Their eyes were currently filled with respect as they looked at Duan Ling Tian.
“Er Hu, where’s Xiong Quan?” Duan Ling Tian looked at the big, young man before him. He felt a little emotional, the kid back then had grown into an adult so fast and currently possessed a cultivation base at the Fourth Level Origin Core.
Although Er Hu was not as powerful as Duan Ling Tian at his age, he was considered talented in the Azure Forest Imperial Kingdom.
“Uncle Xiong Quan…” As Er Hu was about to speak, he was interrupted by a loud voice.
“Who’s that? Who dares intrude on our Xiong Family village?” A loud voice that was like an explosion came closer and closer.
When everyone heard the voice, a silhouette that seemed to have transformed into a giant sword dashed into the village and appeared next to Er Hu.
The person with Sword Energy forming and sparkling around him had two hundred ancient horned dragons’ silhouettes following him above his head. The majestic silhouette descended.
“First Level Advanced Sword Concept?!” Duan Ling Tian had already seen the two hundred ancient horned dragons’ silhouettes before that person, who seemed as though he had transformed into a giant sword, dashed into the village. He could not help but narrow his eyes.
When that person revealed himself, he could not help but say in shock, “Xiong Quan, when… when did you comprehend the First Level Advanced Sword Concept?”
That person was a tall, big middle-aged man with stubbles all over his face. He looked unkempt.
‘Isn’t he Xiong Quan, the person who was by Duan Ling Tian’s side back then?’
“Young Master!” Xiong Quan had rushed here after a villager informed him about the commotion in the village. His emotions were stirred up when he saw the purple-clad young man’s face and heard his voice.
