Naturally, the lethality of the combination of inscriptions Duan Ling Tian had inscribed with his current Spiritual Energy was limited. It could only kill martial artists below the Seventh Level Void Transformation Stage.
The Killing Formation Duan Ling Tian set up could not kill martial artists above the Seventh Level Void Transformation Stage. He simply did not have enough strength yet!
The strength of the Inscription Formation depended on the Inscription Master’s Spiritual Energy. It was a significant part of the process.
‘My current Spiritual Energy is still weak… I can only inscribe a higher level inscription and Inscription Formation when my Spiritual Energy grows more powerful!’ Duan Ling Tian sighed inwardly.
However, he knew he was incapable of achieving that right now.
“I’ll increase the level of the Inscription Formation when my Spiritual Energy increases in the future,” Duan Ling Tian mumbled to himself as he glanced at the ice coffin hovering in the air from his control.
“Xiong Quan, let’s go!” he said to Xiong Quan and lifted his arm. The ice coffin looked like it had transformed into a translucent lightning when Duan Ling Tian moved the ice coffin against the wall of the side palace.
The airflow rumbled in the ice coffin’s wake as a big hole appeared on the wall of the side palace, and Duan Ling Tian and Xion Quan flew out through the hole.
‘Whoosh! Whoosh! Whoosh!’
Meanwhile, Duan Ling Tian moved the ice coffin along with him as he flew. Soon after, they disappeared like three bolts of lightning before the eyes of the Darkhan Dynasty’s Old Princes.
The two old men’s lips twitched when they saw the big hole in the wall.
“Didn’t we strengthen the wall?” One of the old men asked. Shock was written all over his face.
“I heard that even a Ninth Level Void Interpretation martial artist would need at least half an hour to break the wall,” the other old man said. He felt a little numb.
“That makes sense… He’s a Sixth Level Void Transformation powerhouse. He’s much more powerful than a Ninth Level Void Interpretation martial artist.” The two old men had no other choice but to accept the reality before their eyes. All they could do was force a smile on their faces.
‘Whoosh! Whoosh! Whoosh!’
After the three bolts of lightning left the treasure vault in Darkhan Dynasty’s Imperial Palace, they did not leave the Imperial City immediately. Instead, they went to the Zhang Clan’s estate.
“Big Brother Zhang!” Duan Ling Tian’s thunderous voice resounded when they arrived at the Zhang Clan’s estate.
Suddenly, a tremor could be felt at the Zhang Clan’s estate.
Soon after, a silhouette seemingly transformed into lightning before it flew to them. It arrived before Duan Ling Tian immediately. It was a young man who looked mature.
“Brother Ling Tian, what happened to Tian Wu?” That person was Zhang Shou Yong. He noticed the ice coffin hovering next to Duan Ling Tian as soon as he arrived.
It was hard not to notice since the ice coffin was too eye-catching.
Who would carry an ice coffin when they traveled?
After a while, Zhang Shou Yong’s expression changed when he saw a familiar figure lying in the ice coffin.
“Something happened to Tian Wu so she’s in a coma for now.” Although Duan Ling Tian said it casually, Zhang Shou Yong knew the matter was not as simple as Duan Ling Tian made it out to be.
However, he did not ask further since Duan Ling Tian did not explain further.
Through the ice coffin, he could see Feng Tian Wu’s Origin Energy had formed a protective layer to defend her from the chill that the ice coffin constantly released.
The active Origin Energy showed that Feng Tian Wu’s life breath was still strong.
“Brother Ling Tian, since you’ve come all the way to the Zhang Clan’s estate… Why don’t you stay for a little while?” Zhang Shou Yong extended an invitation. “Tian Wu can also rest here.”
“It’s alright, Big Brother Zhang… The reason I’m here is mainly to ask if you and your wife are planning to return to the Blade Sect? If you are, I can send both of you there since I have to run a few errands anyway.” Duan Ling Tian said hurriedly. He was in a hurry to bring Feng Tian Wu to look for the great treasure the Rebirth Martial Emperor left behind.
When he obtained the Royal Grade Resurrection Pill the Rebirth Martial Emperor left behind, he might be able to heal Feng Tian Wu’s soul.
Naturally, this was only a possibility.
According to the Rebirth Martial Emperor’s memory, one would need a massive amount of Royal Grade Resurrection Pills to heal an injured soul.
Meanwhile, the Rebirth Martial Emperor only left behind a limited amount of Royal Grade Resurrection Pills, and he was not sure if it would be enough.
It did not matter to Duan Ling Tian, he wanted to give it a try anyway.
Moreover, the Rebirth Martial Emperor’s great treasure was originally his next destination anyway.
“Brother Ling Tian, Qiong’er and I won’t be returning to Blade Sect for now… I want to stay and bring her to each and every corner of Darkhan Dynasty before we travel to the nine dynasties.” Zhang Shou Yong wore a smile filled with love when he mentioned Wang Qiong.
Duan Ling Tian nodded. “If that’s the case, we’ll make a move first.”
Without waiting for Zhang Shou Yong’s reply, Duan Ling Tian brought the ice coffin containing Feng Tian Wu and headed toward the northern desert like three bolts of lightning along with Xiong Quan.
The journey was smooth-sailing.
Naturally, it was mainly because Duan Ling Tian, Xiong Quan, and the ice coffin’s flying speed were too fast.
They realized that Duan Ling Tian was strong and was not a pushover so they did not dare to look for trouble.
Just like that, Duan Ling Tian entered the northern desert once again and arrived at the first city he went to when he first came to the Foreign Lands previously. It was the Ancient Desert City.
It was also the Skywolf Fort’s territory.
The reason he came to the Ancient Desert City back then was to participate in the Martial Competition of the Ten Dynasties organized by the Skywolf Fort.
A light sound resounded in a spacious restaurant. An ice coffin flew in and floated near a table that was close to the window before everybody’s eyes.
Meanwhile, two individuals appeared before the table. A purple-clad young man took a seat while a middle-aged man stood before the purple-clad man.
“Is that an ice coffin?”
“The ice coffin looks like it’s made from the 10,000 Year Frost!”
“The purple-clad man must be powerful to be able to find such a huge block of 10,000 Year Frost to make an ice coffin.”
The restaurant was filled with the chatters from the customers as they looked at Duan Ling Tian fearfully.
“Xiong Quan, take a seat and let’s eat,” Duan Ling Tian said to Xiong Quan.
“Young Master, I’m not hungry.” Xiong Quan had no intention to sit as he stood respectfully behind Duan Ling Tian.
“What? You’re not listening to me anymore?” Duan Ling Tian said calmly.
Although Duan Ling Tian’s tone was calm, it was like a thunderstorm in Xiong Quan’s ears. He jumped and sat on the other side of the table without thinking twice.
Subsequently, Xiong Quan called out to the restaurant waiter and ordered a table full of dishes and wine.
As soon as the dishes arrived, Duan Ling Tian and Xiong Quan began to eat hurriedly. They were done with eating soon after.
“Eh? An ice coffin made of 10,000 Year Frost?” Just when the both of them were about to pay and leave, a voice filled with surprise sounded. A silhouette in the distance began to approach them as it observed the ice coffin floating next to Duan Ling Tian. That person ignored Duan Ling Tian completely.
Duan Ling Tian frowned when he looked at that person.
It was a wealthy-looking middle-aged man. It was apparent that he was not someone with an ordinary background.
The way the man dressed caught Duan Ling Tian’s attention.
He was familiar with the way the man was dressed. There was a badge of a skywolf’s head on the man’s chest, and the skywolf’s eyes were bronze.
He was a Skywolf Fort’s disciple!
The most shocking fact was the two old men following behind the middle-aged man. The two old men wore a badge of a skywolf’s head on their chests, and the skywolf’s eyes were silver.
It was obvious the two old men were Skywolf Fort’s elders.
Duan Ling Tian figured out the Skywolf Fort’s disciple before his eyes was not simple since he was escorted by two Skywolf Fort’s elders even though he was only a disciple. His background had to be extraordinary at the very least.
“Xiong Quan, let’s go!” Duan Ling Tian did not have any intention to stay despite that person’s extraordinary background. He took the lead and walked out of the restaurant after calling out to Xiong Qian.
The ice coffin followed him wherever he went.
“Such a beauty!” The Skywolf Fort’s disciple saw the red-clad lady lying in the ice coffin. His face revealed a lecherous and greedy expression when he saw the red-clad lady’s beautiful face.
He could not wait to make her his property and slave.
Soon after, the Skywolf Fort’s disciple realized that the ice coffin was being pulled by Duan Ling Tian as he left the restaurant.
“Hold on!” The Skywolf Fort’s disciple suddenly flew out and blocked Duan Ling Tian’s way.
He said coldly, “Brat, put my cousin down if you know your place… Otherwise, you’ll die as soon as you take a step out of here!” The Skywolf Fort’s disciple sounded so certain that Duan Ling Tian had kidnapped his cousin.
“Cousin?” Duan Ling Tian grinned when he heard the Skywolf Fort’s disciple since he knew what the man was trying to do.
However, he disregarded his words and replied coldly, “Get out!”
“I’m going to kill you!” The Skywolf Fort’s disciple had never been yelled at before. His expression changed as he shouted. The Origin Energy on his body ran rampant, and his Concept charged at Duan Ling Tian.
“You’re like a mantis attempting to stop a moving car!” Duan Ling Tian only smiled in disdain when faced with the lightning attack from the Skywolf Fort’s disciple. He simply lifted his arm and punched.
His punch seemed as though it came from the hand of God. It was as though it had transformed into a heavy hammer when it landed on the Skywolf Fort’s disciple’s lower abdomen before he could even touch Duan Ling Tian’s clothes.
A loud thud sounded as the Skywolf Fort’s disciple flew from the punch. The Origin Energy was completely released from his Dantian similar to a balloon after it was pricked with a needle.
The Skywolf Fort’s disciple fell hard on the ground. He felt a wave of drowsiness and only regained his senses after a while.
His face flushed when he realized his Dantian was severed by Duan Ling Tian’s punch. There was rage in his eyes as he glared at Duan Ling Tian. “How dare you severe my Dantian! You’re so cruel! So cruel!!”
“Cruel?” Duan Ling Tian grinned and did not take it seriously.
If he did not suppress the fury within him, the Skywolf Fort’s disciple would have been dead instead of just having his Dantian severed.
