Translator: EndlessFantasy Translation Editor: EndlessFantasy Translation
“It’s really the 10,000 Year Red Fruit!” Duan Ling Tian’s eyes brightened when he looked at the spirit fruit that was so red it was almost purple. His voice was filled with excitement.
Although the burly man and the old man mentioned the 10,000 Year Red Fruit when they were fighting, Duan Ling Tian was not certain if it was the 10,000 Year Red Fruit since the burly man and the old man could have been mistaken.
Now that he had seen the spirit fruit with his own eyes, he was able to confirm it. The spirit fruit was indeed the 10,000 Year Red Fruit because it was exactly the same as the 10,000 Year Red Fruit in the Rebirth Martial Emperor’s memory.
According to the Rebirth Martial Emperor’s memory, Duan Ling Tian learned that the Rebirth Martial Emperor had obtained a 10,000 Year Red Fruit that looked similar to the one his hands in his first life. Therefore, he was absolutely certain the spirit fruit in his hands was the 10,000 Year Red Fruit.
Duan Ling Tian’s voice was clearly heard by the old man whose back was facing Duan Ling Tian. His face changed, and he shouted, “Who’s that?!”
As the old man shouted, he quickly turned around to retreat as though he was afraid the person behind him would ambush him.
A few moments later, he saw the person who was standing behind him. It was a handsome and dashing young man dressed in purple with sword-shaped eyebrows. He looked around twenty-five years old.
“Who are you?!” The old man asked in a deep voice as he looked at the purple-clad young man standing before him.
The person the old man was staring at was none other than Duan Ling Tian.
At this time, Duan Ling Tian had also recovered from his shock. He glanced at the old man indifferently. “It doesn’t matter who I am… More importantly, I want this 10,000 Year Red Fruit.”
When Duan Ling Tian spoke, his tone was unyielding.
“But I found it!” The old man said.
Although he did not know how strong the purple-clad young man before him was, he was able to discern the young man was quite strong based on his speed.
If it was not necessary, he did not want to offend him.
However, the 10,000 Year Red Fruit meant a great deal to him. If he could consume it, he might be able to break through from the Eighth Level Martial Monarch Stage to the Ninth Level Martial Monarch Stage. Due to that reason, he would not easily give up the 10,000 Year Red Fruit unless it was absolutely necessary.
“You found it?” When Duan Ling Tian heard the old man’s words, he was stunned. He could not help but laugh. “If I remember correctly, this 10,000 Year Red Fruit was found by the big guy, right?”
“Before you killed him, didn’t you say it should belong to the most capable person?” Duan Ling Tian spoke as he stared intently at the old man. He then added, “If you don’t agree, you can challenge me… If you win, I’ll return the 10,000 Year Red Fruit to you. How’s that?”
‘It belongs to the most capable person?’
When the old man heard Duan Ling Tian’s words, his face turned even more gloomy. He felt like he had just shot himself in the foot.
He finally realized the other party’s appearance was not coincidental.
Perhaps, the other party had been lurking in the dark since the moment he was fighting the big guy. Otherwise, how would he know about the words he had said earlier?
Moreover, Duan Ling Tian’s last sentence also filled the old man with dread. Since the other party dared to say that, it meant he was immensely confident of his strength.
For once, the old man thought of retreating.
However, as soon the idea of retreating appeared in his mind, it was quickly suppressed by the greed in his heart. “No! I can’t just give up on the 10,000 Year Red Fruit.”
The 10,000 Year Red Fruit made the old man feel unwilling to leave.
There was a hint of mania in his eyes when he muttered to himself. In just a split second, a cane that was grade one Spirit Weapon appeared, and he swung it at Duan Ling Tian.
He unleashed his full power mercilessly, intending to kill Duan Ling Tian with a blow.
However, he retreated as fast as he attacked.
The old man retrieved the grade one Spirit Cane after he attacked Duan Ling Tian with full force. Not only did Duan Ling Tian not evade the attack, but he even stepped forward. Before the cane reached the old man’s hands, Duan Ling Tian hit the old man with his palm as though he had divine help. It landed on the old man’s chest and caused a loud explosion.
Following that, the old man flew away like an arrow and slammed into the wall. He spat out a few mouthfuls of blood.
Duan Ling Tian had actually held back his strength. Otherwise, he would have been killed in an instant with Duan Ling Tian’s strength.
A mere Eighth Level Martial Monarch Stage martial artist was not enough to worry Duan Ling Tian.
After the old man caught his breath, he immediately retrieved a healing medicinal pill and consumed it. He looked at Duan Ling Tian, who stood nearby, in fear after he slightly recovered.
In the next moment, he immediately ran away without saying anything.
He could not help but sigh in relief when he discovered Duan Ling Tian did not chase after him.
After the old man left, he felt that even his inner wear was soaked from his cold sweat. For the first time in his life, he felt he was so close to death.
The feeling of suffocation he felt earlier… He did not want to feel that again in his life.
As for the 10,000 Year Red Fruit, he had completely forgotten about it. He did not dare to contend for it anymore.
Just like that, the 10,000 Year Red Fruit belonged to Duan Ling Tian.
‘When I return, I’ll ask Luo Ping to prepare the other medicinal materials… Once all the medicinal materials are gathered, I’ll refine a cauldron of Profound Monarch Pills with this 10,000 Year Red Fruit.’ Duan Ling Tian could not help but feel excited when he thought about this.
Moments later, he regained his composure and put the 10,000 Year Red Fruit away into the Spatial Ring as though he had obtained a precious treasure.
“Seems like I got lucky… I managed to obtain a 10,000 Year Red Fruit before even finding the Rebirth Martial Emperor’s great treasure,” Duan Ling Tian muttered to himself as a smile crept up on his face.
“I should go look for the Rebirth Martial Emperor’s great treasure now.” Duan Ling Tian began searching the mountain range according to the Rebirth Martial Emperor’s memory from 10,000 years ago. He intended to find the Spatial Ring left behind by the Rebirth Martial Emperor.
During the Rebirth Martial Emperor’s second life, he had collected all types of treasures and rare materials and placed it into an ownerless Spatial Ring.
Duan Ling Tian wanted the Spatial Ring because obtaining it was equivalent to obtaining the Rebirth Martial Emperor’s great treasure.
“Where’s it?” After searching for a day and a night, Duan Ling Tian still did not discover anything.
After 10,000 years, the mountain range had, more or less, changed. Therefore, it was not easy for Duan Ling Tian to find the Spatial Ring left behind by the Rebirth Martial Emperor. He needed some time.
Finally, after three days and three nights, Duan Ling Tian managed to find the Spatial Ring left behind by the Rebirth Martial Emperor. The Spatial Ring was buried deep under the ground. Duan Ling Tian would not have found it if it was not for his sharp Spiritual Energy.
Duan Ling Tian pricked his finger and a drop of blood fell on the newly-obtained quaint Spatial Ring, establishing a Blood Ownership Claim.
Finally, Duan Ling Tian obtained the ownership of the Spatial Ring.
With just a thought, he saw everything in the Spatial Ring.
The Spatial Ring was so spacious that it was terrifying. “It’s worthy of being a Royal Grade Spirit Weapon crafted by the Rebirth Martial Emperor… It’s so spacious.” The space of the Spatial Ring in Duan Ling Tian’s hands was so spacious that it was comparable to a spacious estate.
However, Duan Ling Tian’s attention was quickly caught by something else.
Inside the spacious Spatial Ring, there were mountainous piles of treasures and rare materials. Duan Ling Tian was dazzled by it and was stunned for a long time.
These things were left behind by the Rebirth Martial Emperor. This was the great treasure. From now on, all of it belonged to him.
After taking a deep breath, Duan Ling Tian calmed down and began to take inventory of all the treasures and rare materials in the Spatial Ring. He was totally absorbed in his task.
Despite being mentally prepared, Duan Ling Tian’s heartbeat still accelerated when faced with so many treasures.
Time flew by.
One month had passed in just a blink of an eye.
Ling Tian Peak, Ling Tian Sect.
A gust of wind appeared, and a black figure appeared above the summit of Ling Tian Peak.
It was a tall youth dressed in black. He looked handsome. His face did not look not angry but imposing. When he stood there, it was as though he was one with heaven and earth.
With just a glance, one could tell he was not a simple person.
Suddenly, the black-clad young man’s lips moved slightly, and he said, “Duan Ling Tian!” It was not loud, but it contained Origin Energy. That was why it spread to every nook and cranny on Ling Tian Peak.
“Who’s calling for the Sect Leader?”
“It seems like the voice came from the summit.”
For a time, the entire Ling Tian Sect was shaken. Many Ling Tian Sect’s elders and disciples rose up into the air and flew toward the summit.
As the Ling Tian Sect’s Vice Sect Leaders, Luo Ping, and Zhang San quickly appeared.
Feng Tian Wu, Gold Thug, and Xiong Quan also appeared one after another.
“Xiong Quan, who do you think it is?” Gold Thug asked Xiong Quan through Voice Transmission.
“How would I know?” Xiong Quan gave Gold Thug a look and then muttered, “Someone’s here for the Young Master, but he still hasn’t returned… I don’t know if he’s a friend or a foe.”
Soon after, every elder and disciple of Ling Tian Peak not in closed-door cultivation had gathered at the summit of Ling Tian Peak.
After arriving at the summit, a group of them looked at the black-clad youth in the distance and began discussing among themselves.
“Was it him who called the Sect Leader’s name earlier?”
“Seems like it.”
Many Ling Tian Sect’s disciples were sizing up the black-clad young man.
“Who are you? Why are you looking for our Sect Leader?” Luo Ping asked in a deep voice as she looked at the black-clad young man.
However, the black-clad young man ignored Luo Ping and looked at the group of Ling Tian Sect’s elders and disciples before he loudly asked, “Did Duan Ling Tian kill the Lost Stone Forest’s Martial Emperor’s disciple, Yang Chun?”
The black-clad young man’s question was too abrupt that no one could react for a time. The faces of those who could, changed dramatically.
Although no one admitted anything, the expression on their faces certainly gave them away.
The black-clad young man’s expression remained unchanged, but his tone was laced with coldness as he said repeatedly, “Very good, very good.
