Translator: EndlessFantasy Translation Editor: EndlessFantasy Translation
Duan Ling Tian’s action shocked Xiong Quan into standing up as well.
Even Feng Tian Wu who remained outwardly calm had a hint of doubt in her bright eyes. She was curious about what could stir Duan Ling Tian’s emotion to this extent.
“Yes, Heavenly Jewel.” When Gold Thug saw Duan Ling Tian’s reaction, he was certain his Master knew about the Heavenly Jewel. He might even know the use of the Heavenly Jewel.
Duan Ling Tian realized he had lost his composure. He tried to suppress his emotion as he asked Gold Thug, “I supposed you didn’t mention the Heavenly Jewel for no reason at all?”
“A hundred years ago, the old fellow from the Berserk Mongrel Rodent Clan’s branch obtained his overbearing strength to defeat everyone in our Golden Hellhound Clan from absorbing the Heavenly Jewel Energy,” Gold Thug’s face turned somber as he recounted the past through clenched teeth.
Heavenly Jewel Energy!
Duan Ling Tian’s emotion was stirred once again as he found the information about the Heavenly Jewel from the Rebirth Martial Emperor’s memory. It took him a long time to calm down.
The Heavenly Jewel was a legend. Just like its name alluded, it was a jewel.
It was said that the Heavenly Jewel could absorb the Nature Energy in heaven and earth when it was exposed to the air. It would store and accumulate the energy in it.
The jewel would be filled to the brim with Nature Energy after a few hundred years.
The Nature Energy was categorized into five types of energies. It was the Wind Energy, Fire Energy, Water Energy, Earth Energy, and Thunder Energy.
Similar to comprehending Nature Concept to achieve Nature Profundity, those who obtained the Heavenly Jewel could absorb the Nature Energy stored in the Heavenly Jewel to elevate their Concepts and Profundities.
The speed of elevation was beyond one’s imagination!
‘Heavenly Jewel can boost any type of Nature Profundity… My Fused Profundity is the combination of five Nature Profundities. It’s similar to the Nature Energy stored in the Heavenly Jewel! It’ll definitely boost my Fused Profundity,’ Duan Ling Tian thought to himself. His emotion was once again stirred by this thought.
However, Duan Ling Tian calmed down when he recalled something.
The Heavenly Jewel was only helpful if it had Nature Energy in it.
The Nature Energy stored in the Heavenly Jewel was called the Heavenly Jewel Energy. If a Heavenly Jewel had no Heavenly Jewel Energy, it was just trash.
“The Heavenly Jewel the Berserk Mongrel Rodent Clan’s branch has will be fully filled with Heavenly Jewel Energy again in a year… At that time, their soon-to-be leader will absorb the Heavenly Jewel Energy in the Heavenly Jewel to boost his ability,” Gold Thug continued speaking. It was as though he could see through Duan Ling Tian’s mind. There was a hint of unwillingness in his eyes when he spoke.
Once the Berserk Mongrel Rodent Clan’s new leader boosted his ability after absorbing the Heavenly Jewel Energy, Gold Thug’s ability would undoubtedly be far behind the new leader. At that time, he would not be able to avenge his parents and his clan’s people.
He was furious!
Gold Thug fisted both his hands tightly while his body trembled. He could not suppress his emotion.
He agreed to be Duan Ling Tian’s dog because he did not want to die. Apart from that, it was also for the sake of his clan that perished.
He wanted revenge!
If he died, the Golden Hellhound Clan would be extinct on Cloud Continent.
“Do you mean… The Heavenly Jewel in the Berserk Mongrel Rodent Clan’s possession is now filled with Nature Energy?” Duan Ling Tian asked as he looked into Gold Thug’s eyes.
Initially, he had lost all interest in the Heavenly Jewel since he thought the Heavenly Jewel in the Berserk Mongrel Rodent Clan’s branch’s possession did not have much Nature Energy in it.
“Yes,” Gold Thug said affirmatively.
“Why are you so certain?” Duan Ling Tian asked.
“Ever since the old fellow from the Berserk Mongrel Rodent Clan’s branch died, they’re only left with two Berserk Mongrel Rodents with the Imperial family bloodline… They’ll elect a new leader a year later,” Gold Thug said, “The Heavenly Jewel passed down by the former leader of the Berserk Mongrel Rodent Clan’s branch can only be used by the leader of the clan. The leader laid down this rule.” A hint of vengeance could be seen in Gold Thug’s eyes when he spoke about the former leader of the Berserk Mongrel Rodent Clan’s branch.
The former leader of the Berserk Mongrel Rodent Clan’s branch was the powerhouse who killed his parents.
Duan Ling Tian looked deep into Gold Thug’s eyes once again as he asked, “So… Are you hoping that I’ll take the Heavenly Jewel from them?”
“Yes.” Gold Thug nodded. “Although I’ve no idea what kind of Profundities Master has comprehended, I smelled the five Nature Profundities aura from the five-colored Profundity.”
“I figured the Nature Energy stored in the Heavenly Jewel will be able to boost Master’s ability,” Gold Thug said in one breath.
“What an amazing Golden Hellhound! You have such a sharp nose.” Duan Ling Tian smiled. His smile was so charming that it gave Gold Thug goosebumps and chills.
“Instead of saying the Heavenly Jewel’s for my benefit… Isn’t it just you trying to avenge your Golden Hellhound Clan?” Duan Ling Tian glanced at Gold Thug. His expression revealed he had seen through Gold Thug.
“You’re wise, Master.” Gold Thug kneeled on the ground immediately and said respectfully, “If Master can help me avenge the Golden Hellhound Clan, I’ll be willing to give my life and loyalty to you!”
“At that time, I’m willing to take the Nine-Nine Heavenly Tribulation to prove my loyalty,” Gold Thug said earnestly.
“You’ll be loyal?” Duan Ling Tian smiled sarcastically. “I just killed three of your brothers earlier… Don’t you want to avenge them?”
“Won’t you hate me because of them? If you do, I’m afraid you’ll be killed by the thunder penalty right after you take the oath,” Duan Ling Tian said. His piercing gaze was ferocious when he spoke.
“Master, although we were brothers, we’re not blood brothers after all… We banded together for mutual benefit! From the moment we decided to become pirates, we were ready to lose our lives,” Gold Thug sighed as he spoke, “If we went on like that, even if we don’t encounter you, we would’ve been killed by someone else next time.” There was a sense of helplessness in Gold Thug when he spoke.
No matter how powerful a pirate was, he would not be able to escape death if he encountered a powerhouse. It was similar to what happened to them this time.
He became a pirate largely because the estate of the Golden Hellhound Clan’s branch was occupied by the Berserk Mongrel Rodent Clan’s branch. He had lost all his resources to cultivate.
Therefore, the only thing he could do was to rob to elevate his cultivation base.
He achieved his current cultivation base with his two hands without depending on anyone.
“You’re optimistic.” Duan Ling Tian glanced at Gold Thug and asked, “Since the Berserk Mongrel Rodent Clan has two demons from the Imperial family… It’s safe to say they’re the biggest obstacles if I want the Heavenly Jewel.”
“What are their abilities like?” Duan Ling Tian asked with a gleam in his eyes.
“They have the same cultivation base as I do which is the Sixth Level Demon Monarch Stage… If they don’t go into Berserk mode, I can defeat them! But if they go into Berserk mode, I’m not a match for them.” A hint of helplessness could be heard in Gold Thug’s voice when he spoke.
As soon as the Berserk Mongrel Rodent went Berserk, their combat strength would be elevated a level higher.
The purer their bloodline was, the more powerful the effect of Berserk was!
“Sixth Level Demon Monarch Stage?” Duan Ling Tian’s eyes gleamed as he mumbled, “From what I know, as soon as a Berserk Mongrel Rodent from the Imperial family bloodline goes into Berserk mode, they would have a boost of at least 2,000 ancient horned dragons’ strength!”
“Some that are more talented would have a boost of 3,000 and even 4,000 ancient horned dragons’ strength!” Naturally, Duan Ling Tian learned all these from the Rebirth Martial Emperor’s memory.
Berserk was the Berserk Mongrel Rodent’s innate skill.
It was similar to the innate ability that Variants possessed. The difference was the entire clan could perform Berserk, but the innate ability was rare among Variants.
The Rebirth Martial Emperor had encountered the Berserk Mongrel Rodent Clan during his first life.
In the Rebirth Martial Emperor’s memory, the Berserk Mongrel Rodent was the embodiment of the saying, ‘People would always yell at and hit a mouse even if it’s just crossing the street’!
This was due to the Berserk Mongrel Rodents’ inherent viciousness. They would call you brother today and pretend they did not know you the next day. They would stab you from the back for their own benefit.
Not long after the Rebirth Martial Emperor broke through to the Martial Monarch Stage during his first life, he encountered a Berserk Mongrel Rodent.
The Rebirth Martial Emperor treated it sincerely, but it attempted to kill the Rebirth Martial Emperor for its own benefit.
Fortunately, the Rebirth Martial Emperor discovered its traitorous character during a critical moment and killed it before it could harm the Rebirth Martial Emperor.
Since then, the Rebirth Martial Emperor despised the Berserk Mongrel Rodents from the bottom of his heart.
“Yes.” Gold Thug did not find it surprising that Duan Ling Tian knew so much about the Berserk Mongrel Rodents.
He knew his Master was not someone ordinary when he recounted what happened to his Golden Hellhound Clan and the Berserk Mongrel Rodent Clan 20,000 years ago.
“How far away is the estate of the Berserk Mongrel Rodent Clan’s branch from the Yin Yang Sect?” Duan Ling Tian asked.
“Master, you’re going to the Yin Yang Sect?” Gold Thug asked curiously.
“I have to be there within three months at the latest!” Duan Ling Tian said with his deep voice.
He could not help but think about his two fiancees. ‘Ke’er, Little Fei’er… Please don’t do anything foolish! I’m coming to save the both of you,’ he thought to himself.
“It’ll take about a month and a half to get to the Yin Yang Sect from here… But if we head to the Berserk Mongrel Rodent Clan’s branch as soon as we arrive at the Inner Land, I’m afraid it’ll take more than three months to get to the Yin Yang Sect after obtaining the Heavenly Jewel,” Gold Thug said with a frown.
“More than three months?” Duan Ling Tian also frowned. He shook his head before he said, “We can’t do that. The time is too tight.”
