Chapter 1081: Split in Three
Translator: EndlessFantasy Translation Editor: EndlessFantasy Translation
“Young Master, I overheard something interesting.”
The old man quickly changed the topic after he saw his Young Master began to reminisce about the past with great sorrow.
The grey-clad young man was none other than the First Young Master of Lu Clan, Lu Song.
Lu Song’s burning gaze landed on the old man before he asked him in a deep voice, “Is it related to Duan Ling Tian?”
“Yes.” The old man nodded.
“Speak,” Lu Song said.
“Today, Clan Leader offered a reward for anyone within the Northern Mountain Land and the Southern Outer Land who’s able to present him with a rare item,” the old man said.
“A reward? How’s a reward given by the Clan Leader related to Duan Ling Tian?” Lu Song asked with a frown.
“What if Duan Ling Tian’s the one who’s offering the reward?” The old man questioned.
“Oh?” Lu Song’s interest was piqued when he heard this.
“What item is the Clan Leader looking for on behalf of Duan Ling Tian?”
“They are looking for a rare medicinal material known as the Soul Stabilizing Grass,” the old man explained what he had overheard. At the same time, a life-like painting of a grass appeared in his hand.
“This copied painting was distributed by the Clan Leader… He’s looking for this grass,” the old man added.
“I have never seen such a grass.” Lu Song frowned and shook his head after taking a look at the painting. “Do you know what Duan Ling Tian wants to do with this grass?”
“I did not hear anything about that.” The old man shook his head. “Although I’m unaware of why he wants this grass… I’m sure this grass is extremely important to him, and he desperately wants it.”
“How come?” Lu Song looked at the old man skeptically.
“Young Master, do you know what’s offered by the Clan Leader and Duan Ling Tian as a reward for finding that grass?” The old man asked.
“Hurry up! Just tell me the answer. How would I know the answer to such a question?” Lu Song said impatiently.
“Duan Ling Tian promised a grade one spirit weapon and ten grade one Life Recovery Pills as a reward for that grass!” The old man enunciated each word carefully.
His eyes sparkled and with greed when he mentioned the grade one spirit weapon.
Although he was a Martial Monarch powerhouse, the best spirit weapon he possessed was merely a grade two spirit weapon.
Although the Lu Clan had several grade one spirit weapons, he did not get one due to his current status and position.
He might have a chance to obtain a grade one spirit weapon if the Young Master he served became the Clan Leader of Lu Clan.
“Grade one spirit weapon?!”
Lu Song accidentally snapped the wooden sword in his hand after he heard the old man’s words. However, he did not seem to notice what he had done.
His gaze was fixed on the old man before him. “Are you sure it’s a grade one spirit weapon?”
“Yes.” The old man nodded with certainty. “I’ve already verified it.”
“There are only four grade one spirit weapons in our clan… Our Clan Leader would go so far as to give up one of them?” A hint of jealousy appeared in Lu Song’s eyes and on his face.
“The grade one spirit weapon that’s offered as a reward isn’t from our clan,” the old man said and shook his head.
“Not a grade one spirit weapon from our clan?” Lu Song was stunned. He asked, “Duan Ling Tian is going to provide the grade one spirit weapon for the reward? I believe he’s capable of refining grade one Life Recovering Pills… However, the Guild Master of the Weapons Craftsmen Guild’s Main Guild is the only person able to craft grade one spirit weapons in the entire Southern Outer Land.”
“A grade one spirit weapon is an extremely rare item in Southern Outer Land… Many Martial Monarchs from second-rate forces do not even have a grade one spirit weapons,” Lu Song said.
Based on the way he spoke, it was obvious Lu Song did not believe Duan Ling Tian was capable of crafting grade one spirit weapons.
“Young Master, don’t forget that Duan Ling Tian is a grade one alchemist. As long as he’s willing, he can always use grade one medicinal pills to exchange for a grade one spirit weapon,” the old man said.
“Now that you mentioned it, this is highly possible… It seems like there’s a lot of treasure on Duan Ling Tian.” Lu Song nodded as his eyes flashed. Greed filled his face.
“This might be a chance for us…” Lu Song murmured to himself. He smiled slyly as if he was thinking of something sinister.
“A chance?” The old man was puzzled
“Yes, a chance… A chance to kill Duan Ling Tian!” Lu Song’s eyes gleamed coldly as his gaze fell on the broken wooden sword.
“Little Huai, rest assured big brother will avenge you! I’m not qualified to be your big brother if I don’t shred Duan Ling Tian into a million pieces,” Lu Song said as he looked at the wooden sword. The old man’s eyes brightened suddenly after he heard Lu Song’s words. He knew his Young Master would not have confidently said that if he was not certain. He looked forward to seeing how things would unfold.
“Young Master, how do you plan on killing Duan Ling Tian?” The old man could not resist asking.
Lu Song explained the plan that he had just came up with a moment ago without any hesitation.
After that, Lu Song looked at the old man and asked, “What are your thoughts on this plan?”
“You are wise, Young Master!”
A wide grin could be seen on the old man’s face after he listened to the plan. “It seems like this time around, we’ll also be making a small fortune apart from avenging little Young Master.”
Lu Song could not help but feel smug after he listened to the old man’s praise.
“Duan Ling Tian, just wait for it!” Lu Song’s eyes were filled with killing intent when he thought of the purple figure.
A huge web of conspiracy was approaching Duan Ling Tian with him being unaware. Those people were waiting for him to fall into the trap they set up.
All the injuries on Duan Ling Tian that was caused by Feng Tian Wu finally healed after he consumed the Life Recovering Pill and rested for a few days. All that remained was a scar on his chest.
The Life Recovering Pill could have completely healed the scar, but Duan Ling Tian left it there on purpose.
‘Let it be. It’s a reminder of an unforgettable memory,’ Duan Ling Tian thought as he touched the scar on his chest while he was showering. A faint smile hung on his face.
After showering, he freshened up and then sat on his bed to cultivate.
The room was empty apart from him and the empty ice coffin. As for Tian Wu, he had gotten a maid to move her into a neighboring room.
Nine Dragons War Sovereign Technique, Roving Dragon Form!
Duan Ling Tian fell deep into his cultivation. He was holding two different Concept Fragments in his hands as he comprehended the Concepts and cultivated at the same time.
“En? Why do I feel like something’s not right?”
Shortly after, Duan Ling Tian opened his eyes. There was a puzzled expression on his face as though a question had stumped him.
“This is not the first time… Previously when I was comprehending two different Concepts, it didn’t feel like this.” Duan Ling Tian shook his head and shut his eyes again to continue his cultivation and comprehending the two different Concepts.
Soon after, he opened his eyes again.
“What’s the problem?” Duan Ling Tian frowned. He did not understand what went wrong.
He felt something was wrong every time he tried to comprehend two different Concepts through two Concept Fragments since the time he left the Crimson Sky Kingdom. Duan Ling Tian always felt distracted whenever he attempted to comprehend the Concepts.
The distraction occasionally occurred when he was trying to comprehend one concept. Then the frequency increased when he tried to comprehend another Concept.
“I must find out the cause this time.” Duan Ling Tian was confounded. It had greatly affected his efficiency in comprehending Concepts.
As time passed, Duan Ling Tian experimented over and over again as he tried to find the cause of the distraction when he was comprehending Concepts.
After an hour of experimenting, he finally found the cause.
“This can’t be right?” Duan Ling Tian was stunned when he figured out the answer.
If there was another person in the room observing Duan Ling Tian, they would have noticed a total of three different Concept Fragments in Duan Ling Tian’s hands.
Just a moment ago, he discovered he could simultaneously comprehend three different Concepts through three corresponding Concept Fragments. Moreover, the speed of Duan Ling Tian’s comprehending the three Concepts was quite fast.
More importantly, the feeling of being distracted was gone.
“Ah, I see. I’m distracted due to my consciousness splitting… It should be the side effect from that time in the Crimson Sky Kingdom when I was devilified by Devilseal Tablet for the second time.”
It was not hard for Duan Ling Tian to figure this out.
He still remembered the reason why he could comprehend two different Concepts simultaneously through two different Concept Fragments. It was the side effect of being devilified by the Devilseal Tablet.
At that time, his consciousness was forcefully split into two.
This time his consciousness was forcefully split into three. That was what allowed him to simultaneously comprehend three different Concepts.
“In conclusion, this side effect is beneficial to me… It’s the total opposite of the other side effect where I can’t control my emotion. The latter only caused me problems while the former is helping me.” Duan Ling Tian heaved a sigh of relief after he discovered the cause of the distraction.
It was always better to be aware of something than to stumble blindly in the dark.
“I didn’t expect the problem that had been plaguing me for so long is due to my consciousness being split into three.” Duan Ling Tian shook his head and smiled bitterly.
“My consciousness has split into three… I’m able to comprehend three different Concepts at the same time! The speed of my comprehension is almost double compared to before.”
Duan Ling Tian felt extremely satisfied when he thought about this. At the same time, he shut his eyes and continued to focus on his cultivation
In his hands, there were three Concept Fragments to assist him in comprehending the three types of Concepts.
