Chapter 1121: Before The Departure
Translator: EndlessFantasy Translation Editor: EndlessFantasy Translation
Duan Ling Tian nodded at Su Li before he looked at Sword 13 again and calmly said, “I respect your decision. Senior, if you decide to leave the Blade Sect one day with Su Li, I have something good to give you… something beyond your imagination!”
“Uncle Feng, Tian Wu, let’s go.” Duan Ling Tian motioned to Feng Wu Dao and Feng Tian Wu before leaving the sky above the Blade Sect’s estate.
After Duan Ling Tian and the other two left, the atmosphere in the sky above the Blade Sect’s estate was tensed for a very long time.
“Sect Leader, I’ve given it some thought, and I’ve decided to leave the sect.” Sword 13 looked at the Sect Leader of Saber Sect and bowed as he announced, “From now on, the person with the name Sword 13 no longer exists. Su Li, let’s go.”
The moment Sword 13 finished his sentence, he flew away.
Su Li followed closely behind. From the very beginning until the end, he did not utter a single word at all as he followed at the heels of his Master.
Su Li and his Master left the Blade Sect, but they did not chase after Duan Ling Tian. Instead, they were headed in the opposite direction.
Duan Ling Tian and the other two were headed south, but they were headed north instead.
Su Li’s master chose to leave not because of the thing Duan Ling Tian promised, it was due to his heart.
After the three figures left the Blade Sect, they continued to head south.
Soon after, they entered the area of the Ten Great Dynasties and entered Darming Dynasty.
“Wu’er’s cultivation base has also made a breakthrough to the Martial Monarch Stage?” The red-clad middle-aged man looked at the red-clad woman next to him in shock. His eyes were filled with disbelief.
In his opinions, this was just too absurd.
His daughter was so young, and she was already a Martial Monarch?
Although his innate talent and comprehension were quite good, he only managed to break through to the Eighth Level Void Transformation and comprehended a Ninth Level Advance Sword Concept.
“Uncle Feng, although I still have a Sword Profundity Fragment in my hand, it’s something that I’ve already comprehended. I’ll bring you to a place, and I guarantee you’ll be able to directly comprehend the Sword Profundity!” Duan Ling Tian told Feng Wu Dao.
The Third Level Monarch Stage Sword Profundity Fragment that he obtained from the Sword Monarch’s treasure had helped him to comprehend the Sword Profundity, it would be useless to other people.
Just like a glass of water.
Duan Ling Tian had already drunk half of it so there was only half a glass left. One would need a full glass of water to get rid of the thirst. Even if one obtained Duan Ling Tian’s half glass of water, it still would not be enough to quench one’s thirst.
“Oh?” The moment Feng Wu Dao heard Duan Ling Tian mentioning an amazing place, his interest was instantly piqued.
The place Duan Ling Tian mentioned was no doubt the word ‘Sword’ carved inside the canyon deep inside the mountain range near Xiong Quan’s village. A guy named Feng Qing Yan who called himself the Sword Saint left behind a Sword Dao.
It was quite a coincidence that Feng Wu Dao also comprehended the Sword Concept and had already raised his Sword Concept to the Ninth Level Advanced Stage.
“Seeing the word ‘Sword’ for the first time will greatly benefit you for sure. It’ll be easy for you to comprehend the Sword Profundity, Uncle Feng.” Duan Ling Tian was certain of this.
Xiong Quan had also previously comprehended the Advanced Sword Concept in one fell swoop when he first laid eyes on the word ‘Sword’.
When Duan Ling Tian first laid eyes on the word ‘Sword’, his Sword Concept was raised from the Ninth Level Intermediate Stage to the Fifth Level Advanced Stage. He made an extremely huge progress.
Feng Tian Wu was even better.
She had gained the ability to create Sword from Fire. From her Fire Concept or Fire Profundity, she created the Sword Concept and Profundity that had the same level as her Fire Concept or Profundity.
Due to this reason, Duan Ling Tian was 100% certain Feng Wu Dao would not be an exception.
Duan Ling Tian felt nostalgic visiting this secluded mountain range again.
The canyon was still the same as last time. It was very quiet.
Duan Ling Tian and Feng Tian Wu entered the canyon and did not immediately comprehend the word ‘Sword’, unlike Feng Wu Dao.
“I’ve been here before?” Feng Tian Wu asked Duan Ling Tian.
“Yes.” Duan Ling Tian nodded before flashing a smile. “You gained the ability to breed the Sword Profundity from your Fire Profundity after you looked at the word ‘Sword’.”
Upon hearing this, Feng Tian Wu looked at the word ‘Sword’ and said in disbelief, “I feel like there’s a lot of messages contained in this word. B-But… why did m-my… my… he become like that?” Feng Tian Wu looked at Feng Wu Dao who was in a daze before she asked her question.
She originally wanted to say ‘My father’ but chickened out at the last minute.
Duan Ling Tian did not miss the sudden change in Feng Tian Wu’s words, but he was not particularly concerned. Everything needed time, and Tian Wu also needed time to accept her father.
“This is his first time coming here. Previously, it was the same as well when you and I first came here.” Duan Ling Tian smiled when he recalled the first time Xiong Quan brought him here.
He could still remember that Xiong Quan took the shortest time followed by Feng Tian Wu and then him. He was absorbed in the word ‘Sword’ for the longest time.
“I wonder how long Uncle Feng will stay in that state.” Duan Ling Tian wondered as he glanced at Feng Wu Dao. However, he could not come up with an answer at all. “I guess, I’ll just wait until Uncle Feng snaps out of it.”
“Tian Wu, we’re almost done comprehending the Sword Dao we memorized from this word previously. Since we’re leaving the Outer Land soon, let’s memorize as much as we can so we’ll be able to slowly comprehend it in the future,” Duan Ling Tian told Feng Tian Wu.
She nodded. Under Duan Ling Tian guidance, she began to memorize the Sword Dao contained in the word ‘Sword’. The obscure messages were memorized by her one by one.
Time continued to pass by quietly.
After ten days, Duan Ling Tian felt he had reached the limit of memorizing the Sword Dao contained in the word ‘Sword’ so he did bother to continue.
To his surprise, Tian Wu was still memorizing it.
‘Looks like Tian Wu has comprehended quite a lot of the Sword Dao contained in the word ‘Sword’ she previously memorized when she raised her Sword Profundity,’ Duan Ling Tian thought to himself.
For this reason, Tian Wu could memorize more.
Duan Ling Tian shook his head and proceeded to sit cross-legged to cultivate under the sky.
Nine Dragons Sovereign Technique — Divine Dragon Form!
While Duan Ling Tian was cultivating, he did not forget to stay vigilant. He would extend his Spiritual Energy once in a while to check his surroundings.
Eventually, Feng Tian Wu was also done with memorizing the Sword Dao contained in the word ‘Sword’.
When she woke up, she saw Duan Ling Tian was cultivating. Instead of disturbing him, she also sat cross-legged under the sky to cultivate.
After an unknown amount of time had passed, Duan Ling Tian was suddenly awakened by a piercing aura in the air.
“Uncle Feng, you’ve comprehended the Sword Profundity?” Duan Ling Tian instantly looked over to Feng Wu Dao the moment he woke up. He could clearly feel the piercing aura Feng Wu Dao’s body emitted earlier was the aura of the Sword Profundity.
“I’ve just woke up as well… It feels like there are some changes.” Feng Wu Dao was still in a daze.
“Give it a try then.” Duan Ling Tian smiled.
“Alright.” Feng Wu Dao nodded. With a raise of his hand, his Origin Energy condensed into a sword that swept out.
In an instant, a piercing sword Chi with bloodcurdling aura appeared. The place it swept past in the air turned turbulent as the sound of explosions reverberated faintly in the air.
When the explosion sounded, airwaves appeared and flurries of hurricane wreaked havoc in the canyon.
Nobody knew when but Feng Tian Wu who was sitting cross-legged under the sky cultivating had also been awakened by this. She woke up just in time to see Feng Wu Dao trying out his Sword Profundity.
As Feng Wu Dao’s sword swept out, a Heaven and Earth Phenomenon that corresponded with his cultivation base appeared above his head before the Heaven and Earth Phenomenon that corresponded to his Sword Profundity also appeared.
The silhouettes of 3,000 ancient horned dragons!
The Sword Profundity was equivalent to the strength of 3,000 ancient horned dragons,
“Second Level Monarch Stage Sword Profundity!” Duan Ling Tian’s eyes lit up and he quickly congratulated Feng Wu Dao, “Congratulations, Uncle Feng!”
“S-Second Level Monarch Stage Sword Profundity?” Up until now, Feng Wu Dao was still a little dazed. It felt as though he had only taken a look at the word ‘Sword’ before he became deeply immersed in it.
A long time seemed to have gone past before he finally awakened.
As soon as he woke up, his Ninth Level Advance Sword Concept had transformed into the Second Level Monarch Stage Sword Profundity, totally bypassing the First Stage Monarch Stage Sword Profundity. He had skipped an entire level.
“Impossible! Impossible!” Feng Wu Dao took a deep breath. Shock was written all over his face.
Feng Wu Dao finally calmed himself down and asked curiously, “What exactly is that word ‘Sword’? Why is it so amazing?”
“It’s left behind by a person who called himself the Sword Saint. Uncle Feng, you can go there and have a look. There’s a passage written by the person who inscribed the word ‘Sword’.” Duan Ling Tian motioned to Feng Wu Dao to go have a look at Feng Qing Yang the Sword Saint’s message.
After Feng Wu Dao had taken a look, he was shocked again. He felt as though a door leading to a whole new world was slowly appearing before him.
— although he wanted to enter it, he was still lacking.
Originally, Duan Ling Tian wanted Feng Wu Dao to memorize the Sword Dao contained in the word ‘Sword’ and ask him to follow him and Feng Wu Tian to the Inner Land. However, Feng Wu Dao declined his invitation.
“With my current strength, I won’t be any help to you. I’ll be a burden to you instead. Due to this reason, I won’t be following both of you there. This place is not bad, I want to stay here and slowly study the word ‘Sword’,” Feng Wu Dao replied.
At first, Duan Ling Tian kept persuading Feng Wu Dao. However, Feng Wu Dao still remained unmoved. Duan Ling Tian had no choice but to respect his decision.
“In that case, I’ll introduce someone to you, Uncle Feng.” Duan Ling Tian went to the Xiong Family Village and brought Er Hu back so that he could introduce him to Feng Wu Dao.
After everything was in place, Duan Ling Tian and Feng Tian Wu left the canyon and the Darkhan Dynasty as they continued to head north.
“It has already been a few months, I think Xiong Quan should’ve already broken through,” Duan Ling Tian muttered.
