“Boy, it’s not that I look down on you, but are you sure you’re able to refine the Mortal Shedding Pill?” Doubt was obvious in Wang Ba’s tone.
“Believe it or not, I don’t care! According to the memories I have left, that energy originated from a pill called the Rebirth Pill! It’s made by me,” Duan Ling Tian replied indifferently after he shattered the first bolt of lightning.
“Rebirth Pill? What did you use as the main active ingredient?” Wang Ba asked again.
“I think it’s called the Scarlet Phoenix Blood or something,” Duan Ling Tian answered after he pondered for a while.
“WHAT? The Scarlet Phoenix Blood?!” Wang Ba exclaimed before he let loose a torrent of verbal abuse. “Boy, you actually wasted the Scarlet Phoenix Blood to such an extent? Come on! You must know that even the worst alchemist in Dao Martial Saint Land could use the Scarlet Phoenix Blood to refine the saint rudiment pill! A better alchemist could even use the Scarlet Phoenix Blood as the main active ingredient to refine a saint grade pill! Y-You actually used it to refine the Mortal Shedding Pill? What a reckless waste of God’s gift! What a reckless waste of God’s gift!” When Wang Ba was at the height of his scolding, he could not help but hurl a few more sentences at him.
“This is not the Dao Martial Saint Land. Besides, since that Scarlet Phoenix Blood is mine, it’s naturally up to me how I want to use it… You’re still not qualified enough to lecture me, Bastard,” Duan Ling Tian replied nonchalantly.
It could be seen from his words that he did not find it wasteful to use the Scarlet Phoenix Blood at all.
In his opinion, all these Dao Martial Saint Land, Saint Rudiment Pill, saint grade pill or something had nothing to do with him now. He just wanted to regain his memory as fast as possible.
He was not concerned about anything else.
No matter what, they were all items unrelated to him.
“Hurmph! Boy, I’m a Bastard if I remind you next time when I see you wasting any rare active medicinal ingredient again!” Upon hearing such indifferent words from Duan Ling Tian, Wang Ba snorted unhappily. When he reached the end of his sentence, his tone was raised a few pitches higher.
“You’re indeed Bastard,” Duan Ling Tian replied as a matter of fact.
“YOU!” Wang Ba was instantly infuriated. At the same time, he cursed the old man who named him. Why the hell would he give him such an easily misunderstood name?
“Boy! I want to change my name! I want to change my name!” Wang Ba was enraged.
“Just change it if you want to, you don’t have to tell me. No matter what name you change to, I’ll still call you Bastard. I’m used to it now anyway,” Duan Ling Tian chimed in.
The moment Wang Ba heard Duan Ling Tian’s words, he was rendered speechless.
Another bolt of lightning struck again. The second lightning tribulation came in a fury, aiming for Duan Ling Tian’s head.
However, as fierce as the lightning tribulation was, it was still shattered by a faint sword ray when it approached Duan Ling Tian.
Using the First Level Void Prying Stage’s Origin Energy and his Emperor Stage Sword Profundity to counter with the Six-Nine Heavenly Tribulation that a First Level Void Prying Stage martial artist faced was as easy as carrying out his daily activities.
Just the Emperor Stage Sword Profundity alone was equivalent to the strength of two ancient black dragons.
Duan Ling Tian suddenly took the initiative to call Wang Ba, “Bastard.”
“What?” Wang Ba responded, irritated. It was apparent he was still unhappy about the matter earlier.
No matter what, he was still a Saint Stage powerhouse in the Dao Martial Saint Land previously. Now that he was dependent on another person to live, he did not even have the authority to change his own name.
Naturally, it was not that he could not change his name. However, Duan Ling Tian would still call him Bastard even after he changed it. It was pointless for him to change his name in that case.
“During these two weeks, I regained some of my memory again. Although I still can’t recall my past, I remember a person named Zi Shang. He seemed to have a soul living inside his body as well. Every time a black flame mark appeared between his brows, his strength would rise several levels, and his voice would change to someone else’s voice too.” Duan Ling Tian frowned as he asked, “Are you able to raise my power too?”
“Hurmph! Boy, these things you mentioned are the techniques of those Devil Cultivators with low cultivation base. If a powerful Devil Cultivator like me try to forcibly control your body, your body will definitely shatter into ashes!” Wang Ba snorted. “You’ll do well to remember this… Even if you encounter any danger in the future, I won’t be able to help you even if you die!”
It was precisely because of this that Wang Ba did not seize the chance to possess Duan Ling Tian’s body when his soul was suppressed by the energy from the Devilseal Tablet. Even if he managed to possess Duan Ling Tian’s body, his body would not be able to support his soul.
His soul would need a more powerful body to support it.
‘However, the soul of this boy seems a little strange… When his soul was suppressed by the Soul Remnant Energy inside the Devilseal Tablet, I could possess his body and let his soul turn into ashes. However, right now, I feel that even if I use my soul to attack his soul, it’s very likely that I won’t be able to possess his body… There’s something in his soul that seems to make my soul fear his. If my soul goes near him, it’ll begin to tremble on its own,’ Wang Ba thought to himself. He dreaded Duan Ling Tian’s soul.
Wang Ba, naturally, had no idea Duan Ling Tian’s soul came from another world.
That world was called Earth.
After Duan Ling Tian came to this world, there was the Rebirth Martial Emperor’s soul and the soul of the Devil Cultivator, Dark Nether from the Devilseal Tablet, who wanted to crush his soul.
However, both of them was turned into dust without any exception.
Due to the restriction in different worlds and different laws, no soul could replace Duan Ling Tian’s soul.
Naturally, it would be different if it was an attack on the soul.
The Soul Remnant Energy inside the Devilseal Tablet that suppressed Duan Ling Tian’s soul was known as a Soul Attack. It could destroy Duan Ling Tian’s soul and make him vanish forever.
“Can’t your soul cast the Soul Attack to help me?” Duan Ling Tian asked.
The Soul Attack was also a Spiritual Energy Attack. Usually, only a powerhouse at the Martial Emperor Stage or above could master it.
Naturally, some talented demon beasts could master the Spiritual Energy Attack faster since they possessed the bloodline that passed down the Soul Skill.
Soul Skill was Spiritual Energy Attack, and Spiritual Energy Attack was Soul Attack.
“What do you even know?! To cast the Soul Attack, you’ll need a body as a support! Right now, my soul is in the soul wandering state. Unless I force my soul to clash with all its might, it won’t have any attacking power at all,” Wang Ba replied, irritated.
“Doesn’t that mean you’re pretty much useless?” Duan Ling Tian asked with a frown.
If it was really as Wang Ba said, then Wang Ba was basically no different from trash to him.
“Boy! How can you talk like that? No matter what, I’m still a Saint Stage powerhouse from the Dao Martial Saint Land, I…” From Wang Ba’s tone, it was obvious he was going to boast about all his glorious deeds.
“Well, weren’t you sealed by the Devilseal Tablet in the end?” However, with just one sentence from Duan Ling Tian, he could no longer continue his sentence.
How could he still continue?
“Boy, I’m not going to argue with you!” Wang Ba replied furiously.
Duan Ling Tian also could not be bothered to talk to Wang Ba anymore as he flew out. “After I’ve re-cultivated to the Void Prying Stage, I am finally able to fly again… Although my Origin Energy is still weak, my speed is still very fast due to my Fused Profundity and Sword Profundity.”
Duan Ling Tian was very pleased about this.
Boom! Boom! Boom!
In the next instant, the third to the sixth lightning tribulation descended successively, one was stronger than the other.
However, when all the lightning tribulations landed on the five-colored light shield surrounding Duan Ling Tian, they did not leave any marks behind at all. It was as though they were just helping Duan Ling Tian to scratch his itch.
After going through the Six-Nine Heavenly Tribulation, Duan Ling Tian returned to the city and went back to his room in the inn.
He continued to cultivate after he returned to his room.
While he was cultivating, he did not forget to comprehend his Fused Profundity and study the Sword Dao from the word ‘Sword’ to raise his Sword Profundity.
Although he had lost part of his memory, he did not lose the memory on how to cultivate.
With the aid of the Rebirth Pill’s medicinal efficacy and the reconstruction after destruction after Duan Ling Tian’s Dantian was healed, his re-cultivation could yield twice the result with half the effort. Due to this reason, his cultivation base was rising at a horrifying speed.
In Lost Stone Forest.
Ever since that red-robed old man, Chi Huo, brought Feng Tian Wu away, Martial Emperor Shi Qi had been studying the stone tablet with a chipped corner in his hand, trying to discover the secret behind it.
In a spacious stone house, Martial Emperor Shi Qi was sitting cross-legged in the air as he looked at the stone tablet with a chipped corner. He muttered to himself absentmindedly, “That day, that purple-clad young man’s strength was not even comparable to Zhou Yi, but he actually gained strength that surpassed mine with the help of this stone tablet…. This stone tablet’s energy must be hiding a secret. It has been almost a month, but I’ve yet to find what’s so special about this stone tablet. Don’t tell me I’m not compatible with it?”
When he was lost in his thoughts, his grip loosened and the stone tablet fell. It was only when it smashed on the ground with a loud ‘crash’ that he finally returned to his senses.
“This…” However, the moment he looked at the stone tablet that crashed on the floor, his eyes narrowed, and his face darkened immediately.
There was a fine crack that appeared on the stone tablet. It extended to both ends of the stone tablet as though the stone tablet was going to split in two.
“Impossible!” Martial Emperor Shi Qi lifted the stone tablet with a raise of his arm. He only exerted his strength slightly before the stone tablet split into two with a loud ‘crack’.
“It’s fake!’ Martial Emperor Shi Qi’s face turned grave immediately.
The stone tablet was a fake!
In other words, it had been changed by someone.
That day, when the stone tablet was still in the hand of that purple-clad young man, it could still fight against the Quasi Royal Grade Spirit Spear in his hand. How could it possibly crack so easily with just a fall?
“Zhou Yi!” Martial Emperor Shi Qi did not need to think too long before Zhou Yi appeared in his mind. He was the only person who had the opportunity to commit this fraud and change the stone tablet.
In the next instant, Martial Emperor Shi Qi disappeared from inside the stone house into thin air.
When he reappeared again, he was already standing in front of the stone house that Zhou Yi stayed in. After blasting the door opened, he noticed that it was completely vacant. Moreover, it was covered with a layer of dust.
