Chapter 1138 Heavenly Jewel
All demon beasts with outstanding talent on Cloud Continent were notorious.
Especially those powerful demons talented enough to break through to the Demon Monarch Stage or even Demon Emperor Stage. Their names would be famous on Cloud Continent, just like the Jade-eyed Heavenly Mouse. Apart from the people living in remote and rural places, everyone knew about the Jade-eyed Heavenly Mouse.
Duan Ling Tian naturally heard the whispering among the people on the swift boat.
He did not find that odd.
Let alone the people from this era, not many people on Cloud Continent knew about the Golden Hellhound even 10,000 years ago.
According to the Rebirth Martial Emperor’s memory, the Golden Hellhound Clan had perished in the great war 20,000 years ago.
However, a Golden Hellhound had appeared now out of nowhere. Moreover, it belonged to the Imperial family of the Golden Hellhound Clan.
Otherwise, it would have been impossible for him to break through to the Demon Monarch Stage.
Sixth Level Demon Monarch Stage!
“I don’t only know about the Imperial family of your Golden Hellhound Clan, I also know the Berserk Mongrel Rodent Clan was your sworn enemy 20,000 years ago!” Duan Ling Tian answered Gold Thug’s question calmly.
Berserk Mongrel Rodents!
Almost as soon as Duan Ling Tian was done speaking, Gold Thug who had reverted to his true form emitted a terrifying aura from his body and glared with his green eyes.
The passengers’ expressions changed as the aura spread. It was as though a huge rock was pressing down on their chests, suffocating them.
Soon after, Gold Thug retracted his aura. His green eyes turned calm again.
The passengers on the boat were visibly relieved. However, their eyes still held fear when they looked at Gold Thug.
“Hmm?” Duan Ling Tian did not expect Gold Thug to react that way. He frowned as he said again, “Based on what I know, the Golden Hellhound Clan treated the Berserk Mongrel Rodent Clan as their enemy… but that was more than 20,000 years ago.”
“Both clans almost perished during the battle back then… It has been so many years… Why would you hold such a deep grudge toward the Berserk Mongrel Rodent Clan even though it happened so many generations ago? How did the grudge last 20,000 years?” Duan Ling Tian found the matter unfathomable.
“Master, you have no idea… The Berserk Mongrel Rodent Clan is just like the Golden Hellhound Clan. A branch in both clans survived the war 20,000 years ago,” Gold Thug said, “Not many people know about our existence because we maintained a low profile.”
“I see.” Duan Ling Tian was surprised when he heard that. He asked, “Do the two branches still have enmity between them?”
Gold Thug growled and said through clenched teeth, “We’re sworn enemies!”
Everyone on the swift boat could hear the bone-deep rage and grudge through Gold Thug’s voice.
Although it was not targeted at them, they still felt chills running up their spines.
“Put the four miniature swift boats away. We’ll speak further along the way,” Duan Ling Tian said to Gold Thug.
“Yes,” Gold Thug responded respectfully. The blinding golden light rose from his body once again, causing the people around him to squint.
When they opened their eyes again, they were greeted with the sight of an old man dressed in a golden robe.
Gold Thug did not stay on the swift boat. He flew out immediately and put the four miniature swift boats that were hovering around Yin Yang Sect’s swift boat away.
“Do you know the way to Yin Yang Sect on the Inner Land?” Duan Ling Tian said as he looked at Gold Thug.
“Yes, I do.” Gold Thug nodded.
“Alright. Start the swift boat and head toward the Yin Yang Sect,” Duan Ling Tian said to Gold Thug.
Gold Thug went to the front of the swift boat and started it up.
He adjusted the direction of the swift boat and set it to auto-pilot before he returned to Duan Ling Tian’s side.
He had a few Spatial Rings in his hands.
One belonged to him, and the other five belonged to the two Yin Yang Sect’s elders and his three brothers.
Duan Ling Tian took them shamelessly and said, “Based on the collective ability of you and your three brothers, I’m sure you’ve made quite a fortune from robbing swift boats in the southern area of Ruo Shui River.”
“Yes.” Gold Thug nodded. “It’s all in our Spatial Rings.
Duan Ling Tian performed Blood Ownership Claim on the five Spatial Rings when he heard Gold Thug’s words.
Despite inheriting the Rebirth Martial Emperor’s memory from his two lives, he was stunned when he saw what was contained in the Spatial Rings.
Apart from mountainous piles of Origin Stones, there were many materials such as grade two and grade three Spirit Weapons. There were also medicinal pill bottles with pills in them.
Naturally, Duan Ling Tian was not impressed by the Spirit Weapons and pills.
However, there were many materials that Duan Ling Tian could use. Some of them were rare materials that were just tossed aside.
The number of Origin Stones was even more astonishing.
‘The total Origin Stones from Gold Thug and his three brothers combined amount to more than 100,000 Origin Stones!’
More than 100,000 Origin Stones!
How did they manage to do that?
Perhaps first-rate forces in the Inner Land would have hundreds of thousands of Origin Stones.
However, that was because they owned their own mineral mines and could mine their own Origin Stones.
Everyone on the swift boat, excluding Feng Tian Wu and Xiong Quan, looked greedily at the Spatial Rings in Duan Ling Tian’s hands.
There must be a massive fortune contained in the rings!
It was not difficult for them to figure that out.
However, all they did was look before they obediently returned to their seats. They were afraid of provoking Duan Ling Tian and thus, forced to leave the swift boat.
They felt extremely fortunate for being able to escape the robbery. They did not dare to ask for more.
“Our journey will definitely be smooth-sailing with him here. We’ll arrive in the Inner Land safe and sound.” Many of them smiled in relief.
“Little… Sir, thank you.” The old man who warned Duan Ling Tian at the Ruo Shui Riverside earlier looked at Duan Ling Tian. He was about to call him ‘Little brother’, but he recalled Duan Ling Tian’s terrifying ability and addressed him as ‘Sir’ when he thanked Duan Ling Tian.
“Senior, you’re too polite,” Duan Ling Tian responded with a smile. He had a good impression of the old man.
“Please! Please don’t call me that!” The old man waved his hand immediately. Fear was written all over his face.
He did not dare to sit near Duan Ling Tian and found a seat far away.
Although Duan Ling Tian felt helpless, he did not say anything.
He knew it was useless for him to say anything.
There were many powerhouses on Cloud Continent. The more powerful one was, the higher one’s position would be. For some, their statuses were so high up that it was hard for the masses to reach.
Soon after, Duan Ling Tian introduced Xiong Quan to Gold Thug, “He’s Xiong Quan, my attendant.”
Xiong Quan was grateful when he heard the way Duan Ling Tian introduced him. He nodded before saying to Gold Thug, “I hope we’ll be able to serve Young Master better together.”
“Hmm.” Gold Thug nodded lightly.
Xiong Quan had expected that response.
If it was not for his Young Master, Gold Thug who was so powerful would have ignored him completely.
‘I’ll surpass you sooner or later!’ Xiong Quan decided as he looked at Gold Thug.
Subsequently, Duan Ling Tian looked at Feng Tian Wu. He paused for a moment before he bluntly said, “She’s Tian Wu, she’s… my woman.”
Duan Ling Tian covertly looked at Tian Wu after he finished his sentence. He was worried Feng Tian Wu would get angry.
Duan Ling Tian felt relieved when he saw the faint blush on Feng Tian Wu’s beautiful face. It seemed like she was not angry.
He felt happy when he saw that even though he did not show it outwardly.
Gold Thug behaved casually with Xiong Quan, but he did not dare to behave the same way to Feng Tian Wu. She was his Master’s woman after all. He bowed to her respectfully, “Mistress.”
“Hmm.” Feng Tian nodded lightly at Gold Thug.
Subsequently, Feng Tian Wu and Xiong Quan sat down after Duan Ling Tian asked them to. Gold Thug did not dare to sit. He stood to the side, his back ramrod straight.
“You mentioned the Golden Hellhound Clan and the Berserk Mongrel Rodent Clan’s branches are sworn enemies?” Duan Ling Tian asked as he looked at Gold Thug, “It has been more than 20,000 years, why did you not make peace?”
“With both clans’ talent and reproductive abilities, it’s only a matter of time before both clans regain their former glory like 20,000 years ago if both sides stop fighting!” Through the Rebirth Martial Emperor’s memory, Duan Ling Tian knew how terrifying the Golden Hellhound Clan Hell and the Berserk Mongrel Rodent Clan were 20,000 years ago.
Back then, apart from Martial Emperor powerhouses, even the Ancient Clans did not dare to simply offend them.
They were similar to the first-rate forces back then!
“It’s impossible for that to happen,” Gold Thug said after he took a deep breath. There was sorrow on his face as he continued saying, “I’m the only one left in the Golden Hellhound Clan… My parents and clan people were killed by the Berserk Mongrel Rodent Clan’s branch.”
Duan Ling Tian learned many things from Gold Thug.
A hundred years ago, when Gold Thug was still a puppy, the Berserk Mongrel Rodent Clan’s branch had a powerhouse whose ability far surpassed all the powerhouses in the Golden Hellhound Clan.
The powerhouse led the Berserk Mongrel Rodent Clan’s branch to annihilate the Golden Hellhound Clan’s branch.
“Too bad the old fellow died! Otherwise, I would seek revenge from him. To avenge my parents, and to avenge my clan’s people!” Gold Thug said with his deep voice.
“Master!” All of a sudden, Gold Thug looked at Duan Ling Tian as though he had recalled something. “Since you know about the Golden Hellhound Clan and the Berserk Mongrel Rodent Clan, you must know about the Heavenly Jewel?”
Duan Ling Tian frowned and began to browse through the Rebirth Martial Emperor’s memory.
Soon after, his eyes widened and his breath quickened as though he had discovered something incredible.
“Heavenly…Heavenly Jewel?!” Duan Ling Tian stood up immediately and stared at Gold Thug. His body began to tremble from his stirred emotion.
