Chapter 1157: Preparation
Translator: EndlessFantasy Translation Editor: EndlessFantasy Translation
Upon hearing Duan Ling Tian’s instruction, a group of Yin Peak Elders and disciples left, not daring to hesitate.
“Sect Leader.” Luo Ping looked at Duan Ling Tian,
“Junior Uncle, bring me to Senior Sister Yang Xue’s cultivation place… I want to take her back to her place,” Duan Ling Tian told her.
Yang Xue had died for the sake of his two fiancées. Because of this, without a doubt, he would not mistreat her even after she was already dead.
Upon hearing this, Luo Ping’s body trembled for a moment. Her gaze automatically shifted towards the person in the arms of Xiong Quan behind Duan Ling Tian.
The white figure that was dyed with blood immediately entered her sight.
“Xue’er… How unfortunate.” After a while, Luo Ping breathed a long sigh with a pitiful expression on her face.
Yang Xue was the strongest person among the younger generation of the Yin Peak. Not only that, but she was also a Variant. Had she not died, it would not have been impossible for her to become the next Peak Master of Yin Peak.
“If Xue’er becomes a spirit in Heaven, she’d be happy to know that you treat her so well, Sect Leader,” Luo Ping bowed towards Duan Ling Tian and said earnestly, “Sect Leader, I’ll like to thank you on behalf of Xue’er.”
“Junior Uncle, what are you doing? My two fiancées are greatly in debt to Senior Sister Yang Xue, so it means that I’m in debt to her too. These are things that I should do.” Duan Ling Tian immediately went forward and lifted Luo Ping to her feet.
Under Luo Ping’s guidance, Duan Ling Tian and the other three followed closely behind. Soon, they reached the middle of the hillside near the summit of Ling Tian Peak.
There was a small, established, flat platform. On the small platform stood a small wooden house that was covered in white snow.
“This is where Xu’er would usually cultivate,” Luo Ping informed.
Duan Ling Tian nodded before descending, and he pushed open the door of the little wooden house.
Just as the door was pushed open, some deposited snow fell and crashed onto Duan Ling Tian’s head. However, as though he did not notice it at all, he continued to walk in.
The little wooden house was clean. Other than one bed, there was nothing else. It did not seem to be like a woman’s room
“Ever since Xue’er became Senior Sister’s disciple, she focused on cultivating, and her amenities were very simple… Before Ke’er and Fei’er came, she didn’t really talk much to anybody. It was only until they came to become Senior Sister’s disciples and became her Junior Sisters that she started to become more chatty,” Luo Ping followed Duan Ling Tian into the little wooden house and added.
“I see…” Duan Ling Tian nodded. Then, with a raise of his hand, a crystal-clear ice coffin appeared in front of him. He guided it to land on the bed in the little wooden house with an invisible string.
“T-This is…?” Luo Ping was taken aback.
Before she could realize what was happening, Duan Ling Tian had already asked Xiong Quan to enter and put Yang Xue into the ice coffin.
When Xiong Quan had just reached before the ice coffin, Duan Ling Tian explained to Luo Ping, “This is an ice coffin that’s made from the 10,000 Year Frost. It can conserve Senior Sister Yang Xue’s body forever.”
This ice coffin was the one that he had explicitly carved for Feng Tian Wu the last time. It was now just right for Yang Xue.
“By the time I find the two girls, they’ll definitely wish to see Senior Sister Yang Xue again too,” Duan Ling Tian thought to himself.
“Wait a minute.” Just as Xiong Quan about to place Yang Xue into the ice coffin, Luo Ping stopped him.
“Huh?” Perplexed, Xiong Quan looked at Luo Ping.
“Junior Uncle, is there anything else?” Duan Ling Tian also turned to Luo Ping.
“Sect Leader, I hope Xue’er can lie inside in a clean manner… Give me fifteen minutes, please. I’ll clean her up and change her clothes,” Luo Ping voiced out her idea.
“Alright.” Duan Ling Tian nodded. After he had asked Xiong Quan to hand Yang Xue to Luo Ping, he left with Xiong Quan and closed the door behind him.
“It’s snowing now.” Just when they stepped out of the door, Duan Ling Tian noticed that snow had started to fall around Ling Tian Peak. The sky was dotted all over, and it was stunning.
Extending a hand out, Duan Ling Tian let the snow land on his palm, and he muttered, “Senior Sister Yang Xue, thank you for everything that you’ve done for the two girls. I, Duan Ling Tian, am forever indebted to you.”
Fifteen minutes quickly went by.
In this period of time, the only movement that Duan Ling Tian noticed was the sudden opening of the window of the little wooden house. Water spurt out from inside and there was some blood in the water. Duan Ling Tian knew that this was Luo Ping using her Water Profundity to help clean the traces of blood from Yang Xue’s body.
“You can come in now,” When Luo Ping’s voice could be heard, Duan Ling Tian walked in.
This time, Xiong Quan did not follow him inside. Instead, he stood outside of the wooden house with Feng Tian Wu and the Gold Thug, waiting for Duan Ling Tian to come out.
Duan Ling Tian walked into the wooden house, and he could instantly see that Yang Xue had already been cleaned and had a set of clean, white clothes on. She was already lying in the ice coffin. Through the ice coffin, one could see her graceful body and her ultimately beautiful features that could topple a nation.
Taking a deep breath, Duan Ling Tian gave three bows to Yang Xue’s corpse before leaving with Luo Ping.
“From today onwards, this will be the forbidden area of Ling Tian Peak! Nobody can come here without permission,” Duan Ling Tian told Luo Ping.
Luo Ping nodded.
The next instance, as though he was still not assured, Duan Ling Tian took out a pile of materials and high-grade Origin Stone before starting to get busy with them. He was inscribing an Inscription, and he soon laid out an Inscription Formation.
Luo Ping was utterly lost watching Duan Ling Tian’s fluid movements.
An hour later, Duan Ling Tian started to slow down. However, the materials and the Origin Stones in his hands swept out of his hands and merged into the ground of snow around the little wooden house.
The next moment, a translucent light shield rose up and enveloped the entire little wooden house in it.
After a span of not more than twenty breaths, the translucent light shield vanished before Luo Ping’s eyes.
Of course, she knew that the translucent light shield did not actually vanish for real. Once somebody walked closer, it would be triggered. This was the defensive light shield that was formed by a Defensive Formation.
“Sect Leader, I can’t believe that not only is your power strong, but you actually have such high attainment in the Inscription Dao too,” Luo Ping looked at Duan Ling Tian and gushed in amazement.
Though she was not an Inscription Master, she still had some knowledge about it.
She had witnessed some of the Inscription Masters in the sect inscribe and lay Inscription Formation out before. However, the speed and efficiency of these Masters was not even a fraction of this purple-clad young man’s.
“Perhaps, the Sect Leader can really lay out a large-scale Inscription Formation that can withstand the chill wind blowing from the northern side of the Ling Tian Peak,” Luo Ping thought to herself.
Right now, all that she felt was how unfathomable this Sect Leader in front of her eyes was. She could not see through him at all.
“Sect Leader, what is the highest level of attack that this Inscription Formation can withstand?” Luo Ping could not suppress the question bubbling up in her.
“Well, you’ll need the strength of three ancient black dragons before you can destroy it,” Duan Ling Tian replied.
The strength of three ancient black dragons?!
The moment Luo Ping heard him, her eyes narrowed right away.
Usually, only a martial artist who was on the Seventh Level Martial Monarch Stage and above could cast the strength of three ancient black dragons and more,
In other words, it would be impossible for a martial artist who was weaker than the Seventh Level Martial Monarch Stage to break the Defensive Inscription that covered the little wooden house in front of her.
It had never crossed her mind that the Inscription Formation that was laid out by this person in front in just an hour could actually have such a horrifying defensive force. It absolutely exceeded her imagination.
“Junior Uncle, I might need some materials that I can use to inscribe and lay out the Inscription Formations in these two days,” Duan Ling Tian told Luo Ping.
In the next two days, he would start to lay out a large-scale Inscription Formation that could envelop the northern side of the Ling Tian Peak. However, he did not have some of the materials that he needed to make that Inscription Formation.
“Just let me know if you anything, Sect Leader. I’ll go to Yin… I mean, Ling Tian Peak to search for the things that you want in the storehouse,” Luo Ping replied. She originally wanted to say ‘Yin Peak’ but suddenly remembered that it had already been renamed to become Ling Tian Peak before she could finish uttering the word. It was the same name as the Sect Leader’s.
“Thank you, Junior Uncle.” Duan Ling Tian smiled, taking Luo Ping by surprise so much that she immediately bowed in return.
She was very clear that the reason Duan Ling Tian had called her Junior Uncle was for the sake of his two fiancées. Otherwise, she was basically nothing to him.
Then, under the arrangement of Luo Ping, Duan Ling Tian and the other three stayed behind at Ling Tian Peak. Each of them had a wooden house close to each other in the middle of the hillside.
Feng Tian Wu, Xiong Quan, and the Gold Thug returned to their rooms in an instant and buried themselves in cultivation.
As for Duan Ling Tian, he did not have any time to cultivate yet for now. Instead, he was busy inscribing the materials and high-grade Origin Stones that he already had in hand, scrawling the necessary Inscriptions on them.
Everything that he was doing now was for the sake of preparing for the large-scale Inscription Formation that he was going to lay out in the next two days.
The Inscription Formation could also be considered as a Defensive Inscription, but it could only withstand the invasion from the chill wind.
Initially, such a Defensive Formation was only a simple Inscription Formation and could be laid out very quickly. However, the problem was that the Defensive Formation that Duan Ling Tian wanted to inscribe was one that would envelop the entire northern side of the Ling Tian Peak. The area was so vast that it would stretch out as far as eyes could see.
Had he not merged with the Rebirth Martial Emperor’s memory, he would never have been able to lay out such a large-scale Inscription Formation.
This was because the Rebirth Martial Emperor had experimented on and formed such a large-scale Inscription Formation the last time. Even if an ordinary Inscription Formation could include the same one, he would never be able to create such a large one.
All in all, it all boiled down to one thing: only the Rebirth Martial Emperor could inscribe and lay such a large one out!
After Duan Ling Tian had inscribed most of the materials and high-grade Origin Stones in his hand, Luo Ping had also finished assembling all the materials he had asked her to find without leaving even a single one out.
In the next two days, Duan Ling Tian began to get busy again.
The span of two days went by in just a blink of an eye.
After two days, Duan Ling Tian went to the northern side of the Ling Tian Peak by himself, but he noticed that many male disciples were there being busy themselves. Many Elders were there helping out as well.
While they were busy, the robes on their bodies were flapping loudly in the piercing cold chill wind. Not only that, but some of their hair bands had also snapped because of the wind. Without any restraint now, their long hair billowed in the wind.
“It’s the Sect Leader!”
Without a doubt, Duan Lng Tian’s appearance immediately attracted the attention of many.
However, the thing that they were most concerned about now was not Duan Ling Tian himself.
“Tomorrow will be the three-day deadline that Sect Leader told us about two days ago.”
“I wonder whether Sect Leader can really lay out a large-scale Inscription Formation that can withstand the cold wind!”
