Translator: EndlessFantasy Translation Editor: EndlessFantasy Translation
First Level Void Transformation Stage!
That was Feng Tian Wu’s current cultivation base.
Back then, after the collapsed energy from the Fire Spirit Body merged with her Origin Energy, it helped her Origin Energy to elevate itself all the way to the First Level Void Transformation Stage.
Apart from First Level Void Transformation Stage’s Origin Energy, the Concept Fragments in Feng Tian Wu’s body had transformed completely into Profundity Fragments.
Now, she was a First Level Void Transformation martial artist who had mastered Fire Profundity!
Unfortunately, she had yet to fully master her power ever since she lost her memory.
However, it was something fortunate as well or the sword that was directed at Duan Ling Tian when she had just woken up from her slumber would have been much faster than before.
If that was really the case, Duan Ling Tian would be too slow to dodge it, and she might not be able to recall the sword in time, causing it to pierce Duan Ling Tian’s heart.
It was quite fortunate that Feng Tian Wu had yet to fully control her strength after losing her memory or it would have been a sure death for Duan Ling Tian!
‘Whoosh! Whoosh! Whoosh! Whoosh! Whoosh!’
Apart from Feng Tian Wu getting used to her strength, there were gushes of ear-piercing whistles coming from a sword nearby. It was Xiong Quan practicing with the sword.
“Perhaps, it’s time to look for the Clan Leader… The Spirit Fruit and Profound Assimilation Formation are the ‘things’ that I and Xiong Quan desperately need right now!” Duan Ling Tian glanced at Xiong Quan and mumbled.
“Elder Duan!” Right at that moment, a bird-like voice not unlike an oriole came from afar but began getting closer.
“Xiao Yun?” Duan Ling Tian was doubtful as he looked at servant Xiao Yun who walked into the backyard anxiously. “What happened? Why do you look so anxious?”
“Elder Duan, the Clan Leader is here. He’s waiting for you at the main hall,” Xiao Yun said respectfully.
“The Clan Leader?” Duan Ling Tian’s eyes lit up and he began smiling. “Speak of the devil! I was just talking about Cao Cao and here he comes.”
“Who is Cao Cao?” Servant Xiao Yun could not help but be stunned at what Duan Ling Tian said.
“Uhh…” Duan Ling Tian was stunned and realized that there was no Cao Cao in this world.
An idea flashed through his head. Duan Ling Tian, who had no idea how to explain decided to lie. “Cao Cao… is how the people in our hometown addresses the Clan Leader. Cao Cao is the Clan Leader.”
“Really?” The servant Xiao Yun was a little surprised and said, “Elder Duan, please hurry… It’s not good to let Cao Cao wait for too long.”
Duan Ling Tian’s lips twitched without him realizing after hearing what she said. The girl learned fast and applied what she learned right away.
There was a main hall in the middle of the mansion Duan Ling Tian was living in. However, he had never been here as the place was only used to welcome guests, which he never had.
“Clan Leader.” Arriving outside the main hall, Duan Ling Tian noticed the familiar silhouette standing there. It was the Clan Leader of the Lu Clan, Lu Rui.
“Elder Duan.” Lu Rui’s eyes lit up and he stepped forward to welcome Duan Ling Tian into the main hall himself.
“Is there anything that I can do now that Clan Leader is here?” Although he figured that Lu Rui had to be here for the grade one pills that he asked someone to send to him this afternoon, Duan Ling Tian pretended to be clueless.
“Elder Duan, I’ve never expected your medicine refinement level to be this powerful! You’ve gotten to a heaven-defying level!” Lu Rui exclaimed as he looked at Duan Ling Tian with mixed feelings.
The terrifyingly young grade one alchemist before his eyes did not only have stunning medicine refining speed, his success rate was rather high as well.
The high success rate aside, its purity was ridiculously high as well! It was so heaven-defying that the purity was above 90%.
In his memory, he only knew of someone in the Cloud Continent’s history who was able to refine pills with a purity beyond 90%, and that person existed 10,000 years ago.
He knew of such a person because of the ancestor who founded the Lu Clan.
The Lu Clan’s ancestor left behind a handbook that was passed down to this day.
Only the Clan Leader of the Lu Clan could read the handbook while the rest did not even have the right to look at it.
According to the recordings in the handbook, their ancestor was helped and advised by this person in the past, and that was their ancestor became an outstanding grade one alchemist.
‘Following what our ancestor said, the powerhouse whom he treated as his master had a comprehension far beyond a grade one alchemist in the Medicine Refinement Dao!’ It was hard for Lu Rui to imagine how powerful that person was.
‘From the handbook that ancestor left behind, I think that person was a Martial Emperor powerhouse! He was also the top Martial Emperor powerhouse on the Cloud Continent… Everyone called him a Rebirth Martial Emperor!’ Lu Rui’s heart jolted as he thought about this.
‘I remember our ancestor noting in the handbook that… ‘Rebirth’ was the Martial Emperor powerhouse’s appellation! The reason why the Martial Emperor powerhouse was given the title Rebirth was that he cultivated a powerful method.’
‘As opposed to ordinary people who could only live one life… That Rebirth Martial Emperor could live three lives through that method! He was living his second life when our ancestor met him,’ Lu Rui seemed to recall something when he thought at this point and completely snapped back to his senses. His eyes opened wide and were fixated on the young purple-clad man before his eyes.
It was then that his body began to shudder without him noticing. It was the shudder of his stirred emotion.
‘According to the recordings in the handbook that our ancestor left behind… That Rebirth Martial Emperor would require 10,000 years to rebirth! Looking at the time, the Rebirth Martial Emperor should be reincarnated into his third life now!’ Lu Rui’s became short of breath as he looked at the young purple-clad man before his eyes, ‘C-could he be the Rebirth Martial Emperor?’
‘If he is… His being an ultimate freak makes complete sense… The Rebirth Martial Emperor was a powerful alchemist who had knowledge of various powerful medicine refinement methods, and he should possess immense medicine refinement experiences in his blood since he was reborn!’ Lu Rui became excited as he continued thinking in his mind.
A Martial Emperor powerhouse!
The young man who was standing before him was most probably a reincarnation of a Martial Emperor powerhouse. That being said, the young man before him would most possibly become a Martial Emperor powerhouse in the future!
“Clan Leader, a-are you alright?” noticing how Lu Rui was looking at him, Duan Ling Tian got goosebumps and could not help but ask.
“Elder Duan!” After Lu Rui was snapped back to his senses by Duan Ling Tian, he took a deep breath and tried his best to suppress his stirred emotions. Then, he looked into Duan Ling Tian’s eyes and asked, “Do you know… about the Rebirth Martial Emperor?”
‘Rebirth Martial Emperor!’
What Lu Rui said was like thunder to Duan Ling Tian. He was shocked and those words jolted his heart.
‘Rebirth Martial Emperor?! How does he know about the Rebirth Martial Emperor? And why did he mention about the Rebirth Martial Emperor in front of me?’ Questions began to pop out as Duan Ling Tian began to experience shock.
Nevertheless, he maintained his composure and did not show a thing in his expression.
Who would know if the Lu Rui standing before him could be a descendant of the Rebirth Martial Emperor’s enemy?
‘The Lu Clan has existed for 10,000 years… That means the ancestor who founded the Lu Clan existed 10,000 years ago! He might really have something to do with the Rebirth Martial Emperor.’
‘Moreover, he must’ve left some notes or handbook… Otherwise, it’s impossible for Lu Rui who’s the Clan Leader 10,000 years later to know of the Rebirth Martial Emperor!’
Duan Ling Tian thought of many things in the blink of an eye but as he thought this over thoroughly, he did not show any emotions on his face.
10,000 years ago, the name Rebirth Martial Emperor was heard throughout the entire Cloud Continent’s Inner and Outer Lands as he was the top powerhouse in the continent.
In that era, even a three year old child would cry if he heard the name Rebirth Martial Emperor.
One could only guess how powerful the name Rebirth Martial Emperor back in the day.
“Rebirth Martial Emperor? Martial Emperor powerhouse?” Duan Ling Tian pretended to look lost. “I’ve never heard of that.” Although Duan Ling Tian did not show any emotion on his face, Lu Rui was not one to be underestimated, especially since he was the Clan Leader of the Lu Clan. He did not believe the show that Duan Ling Tian put up, not one bit.
“Lu Zheng!” Lu Rui continued to stare into Duan Ling Tian’s eyes and enunciated the two words slowly. He seemed to be confirming if Duan Ling Tian was the reincarnation of the Rebirth Martial Emperor.
Lu Zheng was the ancestor who founded the Lu Clan 10,000 years ago. He was also an outstanding grade one alchemist.
Lu Rui believed that as long as the young man before him was the reincarnation of the Rebirth Martial Emperor, he would definitely know of the Lu Clan’s ancestor.
“Lu Zheng?” Duan Ling Tian was stunned by instinct after hearing what Lu Rui said. He had never heard of that name.
Lu Rui was a little disappointed after seeing how Duan Ling Tian was lost in his eyes. ‘Seems like I got it wrong… Elder Duan probably isn’t the reincarnation of the Rebirth Martial Emperor.”
‘Lu Zheng!’ Duan Ling Tian’s heart jolted as he found memories related to that name as he browsed through the memories of both lives the Rebirth Martial Emperor lived by instinct.
The Rebirth Martial Emperor loved traveling when he was living his second life. He had helped and advised many from his hobby.
Among the people he had a greater impression on was a person named Lu Zheng!
In the Rebirth Martial Emperor’s memory, Lu Zheng had great talent in the Medicine Refinement Dao so he spent some time advising him, which made them master and disciple for a little while.
Although the Rebirth Martial Emperor did not officially take Lu Zheng as his disciple, he called the Rebirth Martial Emperor master anyway.
‘10,000 years ago, not many people knew about the Three Lives Rebirth Technique that the Rebirth Martial Emperor cultivated and the cultivation method of the technique… However, Lu Zheng was among the ones who knew!’ Duan Ling Tian managed to guess quite a number of things by then, including why Lu Rui asked him if he knew about the Rebirth Martial Emperor out of the blue.
Lu Rui undoubtedly would have guessed that he was the reincarnation of the Rebirth Martial Emperor.
‘Seems like this Lu Zheng was the person who founded this Alchemist Family that has been passed down for 10,000 years… Also, Lu Zheng probably left behind some notes or a handbook that mentions the Rebirth Martial Emperor for the Lu Clan descendants.’ It was not difficult for Duan Ling Tian to figure these things out.
