1216 Innate Void Restoration Stage?
Translator:Insignia | Editor: Insignia /EndlessFantasy Translation The whirlpool in Duan Ling Tian’s Dantian was like a beast with its bloody mouth opened wide as it consumed all the energy that came from the Devilseal Tablet.
During this process, bursts of vast and tremendous energy continued to spread out. It sent chills down everyone’s spines, including Martial Emperor Shi Qi.
The energy was strong and tyrannical.
“What energy is that?” Horror dawned on Martial Emperor Shi Qi’s face. He felt the purple-clad young man’s energy that kept increasing seemed to have gone beyond his comprehension scope.
At a place where nobody could see, inside Duan Ling Tian’s Dantian, waves of black energy merged with his Dantian and continued to gather in the middle of his Dantian before it finally accumulated, solidifying into a black flame that emitted a dark soul aura.
Without warning, Duan Ling Tian’s purple hair that was fluttering in the wind gradually fell over his shoulders. The tyranny in his red eyes seemed to be less intense as well.
In the next instant, he suddenly lifted his head and looked at Martial Emperor Shi Qi.
Just one look made Martial Emperor Shi Qi felt a hint of dread. He immediately became guarded as though he was confronted by a formidable enemy.
Duan Ling Tian’s next move took everyone on the scene by surprise.
After he glanced at Martial Emperor Shi Qi, he disappeared before everyone’s eyes as though he was not there in the first place.
“How fast!” Duan Ling Tian’s speed was so fast. It took Martial Emperor Shi Qi by surprise that he instantly narrowed his eyes. A hint of fear could be seen on his face.
He realized that Duan Ling Tian’s current speed was so fast that he would not be able to catch up to him even if he used his Quasi Royal Grade Spirit Spear and unleashed his maximum flying speed.
Although Duan Ling Tian’s departure was sudden, it made Martial Emperor Shi Qi heaved a sigh of relief.
He had a feeling he would have died if Duan Ling Tian whose Dantian had transformed attacked him earlier.
“That’s fast!” The two Martial Emperor’s direct disciples whose surname was Zhao and Sun were baffled. They discovered they could not even catch any trace of the purple-clad young man’s movement when he disappeared.
Zhou Yi who had also noticed this turned grave instantly.
However, his eyes lit up again in the next instant.
This was because he realized when Duan Ling Tian left, he did not bring the woman along with him. Moreover, he did not even bring the mysterious stone tablet that bestowed him great power.
However, his face very quickly turned grave again when he noticed the stone tablet was already in his master’s hand. He knew it was impossible for him to get his hands on that stone tablet now.
“Big Brother Duan.” Standing by the side, Feng Tian Wu’s extremely beautiful and delicate face was filled with concern.
From the beginning until the end, she did not miss the transformation on Duan Ling Tian’s body.
Although he did not bring her along when he left, she did not blame him at all. Not only did she not blame him, but she was very worried about Duan Ling Tian.
She knew something must have happened to him even though she had no idea what exactly happened.
Feng Tian Wu’s red dress fluttered as she prepared to leave Lost Stone Forest to chase after Duan Ling Tian.
However, she was blocked by Zhou Yi again in the next instant. He warned nonchalantly, “Don’t forget the promise between you and I. If you escape now, I’ll make a trip to the Ling Tian Sect and annihilate the entire Ling Tian Sect!”
Feng Tian Wu’s face turned dark when she heard Zhou Yi’s threat. She snarled in a low voice, “You’ve already seen my Big Brother Duan’s power! You still dare to pick a fight with me and the Ling Tian Sect? Aren’t you afraid of death?”
“Hurmph!” Zhou Yi snorted with disdain. “I admit that Duan Ling Tian is indeed very powerful… However, that was the strength the stone tablet gave him! Right now, he has lost the stone tablet… do you think I’ll still be afraid of him even if he comes back?”
Zhou Yi’s face was filled with ridicule.
In his opinion, Duan Ling Tian was no match for him without that stone tablet. He would be able to kill him easily with just a flip of his palm.
Although Feng Tian Wu was extremely angry, she still held back when she thought about the significance of Ling Tian Sect to her Big Brother Duan.
“I hope you don’t regret your decision.” In the end, Feng Tian Wu glanced Zhou Yi coldly before she turned around to return to the stone house she was staying in.
“Regret? I, Zhou Yi, have no idea what ‘regret’ means.” Zhou Yi snorted before shifting his eyes to the Devilseal Tablet in Martial Emperor Shi Qi’s hands that was left behind by Duan Ling Tian. A hint of greed rose up on his face immediately.
The eyes of every Martial Emperor’s disciples and followers, including the two Martial Emperor’s direct disciples, were also trained on the Devilseal Tablet in Martial Emperor Shi Qi’s hand. They were more or less similar to Zhou Yi.
That stone tablet had given them the shock of their lives.
It actually allowed a Martial Monarch who was no match for Zhou Yi to possess strength that was able to compete with their Lost Stone Forest’s Martial Emperor Shi Qi.
Moreover, even if the person’s Dantian was crippled after his strength was raised by activating the stone tablet, he would still remain powerful and could even fly.
In their opinion, this should have been impossible!
In a faraway place at the eastern side of Lost Stone Forest.
A purple figure disappeared from Lost Stone Forest in just a blink of an eye.
It was none other than Duan Ling Tian who had just left Lost Stone Forest.
At this moment, Duan Ling Tian still retained his appearance from after he was devilified. He still had purple hair and emotionless red eyes like a zombie.
“Your courage is really huge, boy! Much bigger than mine! With the body of an Innate martial artist, you actually dragged the Remnant Soul Energy inside the Devilseal Tablet into your body three times! You really don’t want to live anymore!” A boisterous voice that was full of vigor suddenly rang in Duan Ling Tian’s mind.
“Hurmph! If I didn’t gather my soul and was reborn again after completely absorbing the Soul Remnant Energy in the Devilseal Tablet, you would’ve died a long time ago! However, you don’t have to thank me at all. By using the Devilseal Tablet three times, it can be considered as you indirectly helping me to gather my soul for rebirth. I guess we’ll call it even!” The owner of the boisterous voice blabbered non stop.
“However, you still owe me a life… If I didn’t stop you from attacking that little boy at the Innate Void Restoration Stage, your soul would’ve been shattered! You better believe me… Your soul is already on the verge of shattering after going through all the wear and tear. If you still continue to randomly use the Soul Remnant Energy from the Devilseal Tablet to attack, your soul will definitely shatter! If your soul shatters, I’ll be forced to accept this lousy body of yours. I don’t want this lousy body of yours. No, thank you! Remember, you owe me a life so you must find a high-quality body for me! My requirement is not high. I just want the body of a dragon clan’s lineal descendant.” The chatterbox continued on without any signs of exhaustion.
“Oh, yeah! I forgot that you can’t hear me now, boy… Still, I must admit that I feel much better now being able to talk after not being able to for so many years. I’ll let the remaining Soul Remnant Energy in your body find a place for you to stop before I absorb all of it and revive your soul that’s suppressed. If I absorb all of it now, you’ll definitely die. At that time, both of us are doomed. You’re a disabled person now that your Dantian is crippled. How embarrassing that your Dantian is crippled by a little boy at the Innate Void Restoration Stage!”
The chatterbox continued on, showing no signs of stopping at all.
It was fortunate that Duan Ling Tian could not hear him at the moment. Otherwise, he would definitely be agitated and annoyed.
In just a blink of an eye, three days had gone by.
Lost Stone Forest regained its tranquility, and the southeastern side of the stone forest that was destroyed had been restored as well. It did not look like it had been destroyed before.
The group of Martial Emperor’s followers was very efficient.
Although the stone forest had been restored, the incident that had taken place three days ago would be remembered forever by the group of Martial Emperor’s disciples and followers who were present that day.
Occasionally, when the purple-clad young man with purple hair and red eyes appeared in their minds, it would instantly send chills down their spines and goosebumps would appear their skin.
That purple figure had become their nightmare.
Today, a figure suddenly appeared outside of Lost Stone Forest.
It was a sturdy old man dressed in a long robe. His face was fully covered with a greyish-white curly beard while his unbound greyish-white hair laid behind his shoulders on his back.
When the wind blew, the long robe on the old man’s body fluttered. It seemed as though it had transformed into a blazing flame, causing him to look like a Fire God descending from the sky.
Without any warning, the red-robed old man disappeared from the spot.
When he reappeared again, he was already inside Lost Stone Forest. All the Illusory and Killing Formations in Lost Stone Forest were ignored by him. Entering the Lost Stone Forest was like strolling on normal grounds for him.
“Who is this?” The moment the red-robed old man appeared, many Martial Emperor’s followers were taken by surprise. A group of Martial Emperor’s followers appeared and surrounded the old man.
Dread could be seen on these Martial Emperor’s followers’ faces.
They were a little scared in their hearts.
This old man would not be as freaky as the purple-clad young man from three days ago, right?
The two of them seemed quite similar.
At the very least, the way they entered Lost Stone Forest as though they were strolling on normal grounds and ignoring all the Illusory and Killing Formations were similar.
“Huh?” The red-robed old man was frowning at the appearance of the group of Martial Emperor’s followers in Lost Stone Forest when his eyes suddenly lit up as though he had noticed something.
“Fire Spirit Body?” In the next instant, he sighed before vanishing into thin air before of the group of Martial Emperor’s followers.
The instant the red-robed old man disappeared, all of the Martial Emperor’s followers felt a gust of strong wind that swept through Lost Stone Forest.
“Shit! He went in!” Horror dawned on all the Martial Emperor’s followers.
“Enemy invasion! Enemy invasion!”
“A powerhouse has trespassed into Lost Stone Forest!”
The group of Martial Emperor’s followers immediately flew out at full speed and charged into Lost Stone Forest.
They were shouting at the top of their lungs anxiously, trying to warn the Martial Emperor’s disciples and followers deep inside Lost Stone Forest, not to mention the direct disciples and Martial Emperor Shi Qi too!
