Chapter 1270: Hidden Fog City
Translator: EndlessFantasy Translation Editor: EndlessFantasy Translation
To the three Island Masters, the status of the core disciples on Hidden Fog Island was equivalent to the Martial Emperor’s direct disciples on Cloud Continent.
“Sister Ke’er, it seems like we won’t be able to go to Hidden Fog City today… Although the two fellows have left, they might be hiding nearby. They’ll definitely follow us as soon as we leave,” the purple-clad lady said to the lady next to her.
“It’s alright, Sister Fei’er… We’ll go in a few days time,” the latter said.
The two ladies were Li Fei and Ke’er. They had followed Martial Emperor You Han to the Hidden Fog Island.
Although they were Martial Emperor You Han’s direct disciples, it was difficult for them to achieve outstanding result with their current abilities in the Hidden Fog Martial Competition.
They came to Hidden Fog Island just to spectate.
Ever since they arrived at the Hidden Fog Island, they had planned to visit Hidden Fog City. However, two irritating ‘flies’ would always bother them, affecting their mood greatly.
The ‘flies’ that Li Fei and Ke’er were referring to were none other than the two Hidden Fog Island’s inner island disciples who had just left.
Previously, it was these two inner island disciples who had shown them to their accommodation.
Who would have thought they would linger around and irritate them.
As soon as Li Fei and Ke’er were about to leave, they would show up just in time. They were like those medicinal herbal patches that were so sticky that it was hard to get rid off.
“Senior Sister will come out of her closed-door cultivation in a few days… We can ask her to accompany us at that time,” Li Fei mumbled as her eyes gleamed.
“I’m sure they wouldn’t dare to do as they please if Senior Sister Xu is with us.” Ke’er scoffed softly.
At the moment when the two ladies returned to their room to cultivate, a group of guests arrived at the Hidden Fog Island.
They were the people from Ling Xuan Peak.
It was Duan Ling Tian and the others.
Led by Martial Emperor Ling Xuan, Yang Hui, they successfully traveled through the dangerous ocean and arrived safely at the Hidden Fog Island.
“We’ve arrived at the Hidden Fog Island,” Yang Hui said. He surprised everyone, including Duan Ling Tian, with his words.
After a while, everyone regained their senses.
“So this is Hidden Fog Island?”
“We can only see a small part of Hidden Fog Island standing here… Just like its name, most of Hidden Fog Island is hidden by the fog.”
Many of them observed the island before them and discussed among themselves.
Duan Ling Tian stood aside and took a good look at the island.
The Hidden Fog Island really lived up to its name.
As they entered the Hidden Fog Island, two silhouettes came from afar and blocked their path.
“Sir, may I ask which Martial Emperor powerhouse from Cloud Continent are you?” They asked Yang Hui who was at the lead bluntly as they blocked their path.
“Martial Emperor Ling Xuan,” Yang Hui said calmly as he looked at the two people’s waists, “Both of you are the Hidden Fog Island’s inner island disciples?”
“Sir, Island Master sent us to welcome all of you… Please follow me. We’ve prepared your accommodation in the south of Hidden Fog Island,” one of the inner island disciples said respectfully.
“Please lead the way.” Yang Hui nodded.
The two inner island disciples turned around to lead the way. They led Duan Ling Tian, Yang Hui, and the others to the south of Hidden Fog Island.
It was where the southern island of Hidden Fog Island was located.
The southern island was where Hidden Fog Island hosted their guests. Usually, nobody was allowed there.
There would be inner island disciples monitoring and patrolling the southern island from above every now and then. There was only one outcome for all intruders that were caught – death!
Along the way, Duan Ling Tian and the others learned about the Hidden Fog Island from one of the inner island disciples.
They learned about the three powerful Island Masters of Hidden Fog Island, a group of Martial Emperor and Demon Emperor interim elders and elders as well as the matter of some Martial Emperors who were residing here long-term.
Naturally, they also learned many things about the weak natives living in Hidden Fog City.
‘This Hidden Fog Island is closed to public… Apart from some powerful Martial Emperor and Demon Emperor powerhouses, the natives usually don’t leave the island at all from the moment they’re born to the day they die.’
‘This is like a hidden paradise,’ Duan Ling Tian could not help but exclaim inwardly.
Meanwhile, they had also learned of the differences between the Hidden Fog Island’s core disciples, inner island disciples, and outer island disciples from that inner island disciple.
If one were to use Cloud Continent’s Martial Emperor powerhouses as an example, the Hidden Fog Island’s outer island disciples would be the equivalent of a Martial Emperor’s followers.
Meanwhile, inner island disciples would be the equivalent of a Martial Emperor’s disciples, and the core disciples would be the equivalent of a Martial Emperor’s direct disciples.
“So the people from Cloud Continent aren’t the only one who will be participating in the Hidden Fog Martial Competition? People from the Hidden Fog Island are also participating?” Yang Hui’s third direct disciple, Zhong An, asked in surprise after listening to the inner island disciple.
“Yes.” The inner island disciple nodded. “But just like all of you, only ten of us from Hidden Fog Island will participate in the competition.”
“The Hidden Fog Island is so big, but only ten people are participating in the Hidden Fog Martial Competition… I’m sure the ten people who will be participating must be remarkable, right?” Someone asked.
“Of course.” The inner island disciple nodded with pride in his eyes. “On our Hidden Fog Island, we have at least twenty core disciples… The ten people who are participating in the Hidden Fog Martial Competition are ten of the most outstanding core disciples on our Hidden Fog Island.”
The inner island disciple’s words struck Duan Ling Tian and the others like a lightning. They were in shock.
There were at least twenty core disciples on the Hidden Fog Island?
One must know that the Hidden Fog Island’s core disciples’ strength was similar to the Martial Emperor’s direct disciples on Cloud Continent.
The ten people from Hidden Fog Island that were selected among at least twenty core disciples were undoubtedly elite. There must be quite a number of them who were Martial Emperors.
Apart from Duan Ling Tian and Zhou Di who managed to keep their calm, the remaining eight, including the Martial Emperor’s direct disciples, Song Ting and Zhong An, looked a little wretched.
At this moment, they finally realized they might encounter an undefeatable opponent during the Hidden Fog Martial Competition.
Soon after, Duan Ling Tian and the others arrived at a huge mansion under the two inner island disciples’ lead. There were many small compounds in the mansion.
It was more than enough for all eleven of them to occupy a compound each.
“Sir, the Hidden Fog Martial Competition will only take place three months later… Within these three months, if you and your disciples are bored, you can visit Hidden Fog City,” the two inner island disciples said to Yang Hui before they left.
Yang Hui nodded.
“If there’s nothing else, we’ll make a move now.” The two inner island disciples left after bidding them goodbye. They turned around and headed straight to the east side of Hidden Fog Island.
Their mission was to welcome one Martial Emperor powerhouse and his people. Once they have completed their mission, they would report to the eastern island of Hidden Fog Island.
After they gave their report, they would not be required to welcome another Martial Emperor powerhouse and his disciples.
The other inner island disciples would welcome the other Martial Emperor powerhouses who had yet to arrive and the people they brought along.
“There are natives from Hidden Fog Island and also Martial Emperor powerhouses from Cloud Continent who had settled down in Hidden Fog City… How interesting,” Duan Ling Tian sat on the bed with his legs crossed as he mumbled softly, “I’ll visit Hidden Fog City in a few days… I’d like to experience the Hidden Fog Island’s culture.”
“The cultivation environment on Cloud Continent can’t compare to the Hidden Fog Island since it’s an Oversea Saint Island… It feels like there’s something beneath the ground… Could it be a supreme-grade Origin Stones reserve?” Duan Ling Tian speculated as he indulged in the concentrated Heaven and Earth Origin Energy on Hidden Fog Island.
Supreme-grade Origin Stones reserve!
All of the Origin Stones produced from such a reserve were supreme-grade Origin Stones. There might even be some high-quality supreme-grade Origin Stones among them.
An Origin Stones reserve like that did not exist on Cloud Continent.
Although there were supreme-grade Origin Stones on Cloud Continent, they came from high-grade Origin Stones reserves. The quantity was low. It could not be compared to a supreme-grade Origin Stones reserve no matter what.
Although Duan Ling Tian had speculated there was a supreme-grade Origin Stones reserve beneath the Hidden Fog Island, he had zero interest in it.
To him, supreme-grade Origin Stones were just currency for trading and materials to carve inscriptions on. He did not care how many he had as long as he had enough.
“Since there might be supreme-grade Origin Stones beneath the island… Then this Hidden Fog Island can be considered as a treasure island! There must be many precious minerals and herbs here.”
“I’ll make a trip to Hidden Fog City in a few days and see if I can gather all the materials I need to craft the Royal Grade Spirit Archery Set… I’ll be able to form the Royal Grade Weapon Flame once I successfully raise my cultivation base and break through to the Martial Emperor Stage. At that time I’ll be able to craft a Royal Grade Spirit Bow and Arrows if I manage to gather all the materials.”
“By then, I’ll be able to use the Royal Grade Spirit Archery Set to cultivate the Colossal Aerolite Arrow that father left for me.” Duan Ling Tian made up his mind in just a blink of an eye.
Subsequently, he closed his eyes again to calm his mind for cultivation.
Nine Dragons War Sovereign Technique, Divine Dragon Form!
While he was cultivating, he did not forget to comprehend the two types of Profundities.
While his cultivation was rising rapidly, his two Profundities were also rising rapidly.
Ten days later, Duan Ling Tian woke up from his cultivation.
“I’m just a step away from breaking through to the Martial Emperor Stage… All I need is just a little more time before I successfully breakthrough!” Duan Ling Tian’s eyes gleamed as soon as he opened them. There was a hint of confidence in those eyes.
He was only one step away from his breakthrough. There was only one hurdle left before he entered the Martial Emperor Stage.
Once he had broken through, he would be like a carp leaping over the dragon’s gate. His cultivation would sky-rocket at that time!
“I’ll make a trip to Hidden Fog City now.” Duan Ling Tian walked out of the room and left the small stand-alone compound before he leaped up into the sky. It seemed as though he had turned into a bolt of lightning as he made his way to Hidden Fog City.
