Translator: EndlessFantasy Translation Editor: EndlessFantasy Translation
“Yellow-clad girl? Mischievous?” A familiar figure instantly emerged in Duan Ling Tian’s mind after he heard Martial Emperor Shi Qi’s words.
Han Xue Nai!
“Xue Nai’s back?” Duan Ling Tian’s eyes lit up. It was not difficult for him to guess that the yellow-clad girl was most likely Han Xue Nai. He looked at Martial Emperor Shi Qi and asked, “What about the white-clad little girl? Are there any distinctive features? How did the yellow-clad girl address her?”
Martial Emperor Shi Qi took a while to remember before he finally said, “The yellow-clad girl called her Little White.”
Duan Ling Tian was shaken.
He was just guessing earlier that the yellow-clad girl was Han Xue Nai. However, he was certain now.
Was Little White not the little white python from back then?
“It seems like Little White managed to transform into a human… And she took the form of a little girl.” A slight smile hung on the corner of Duan Ling Tian’s mouth. The little thing from back then had already grown so much, he could not help but feel a little sentimental.
“Xue Nai brought Little White… I wonder if Little Black and Little Gold came along.” Duan Ling Tian could not help but think of the other two little fellows when he thought about Xue Nai and Little White.
The two little fellows were naturally the little black python and the little gold mouse.
Back then, the three little fellows were left with Xue Nai. They had been away for so many years. After Duan Ling Tian heard that they were back, the memories hidden deep in the recesses of his mind resurfaced.
‘After we’re finished with the matters on the Overseas Saint Islands, I’ll bring Ke’Er, Little Fei’Er, and Tian Wu back to Cloud Continent… After so many years, I really do miss them.’ Duan Ling Tian planned in his heart.
Han Xue Nai’s figure and the figures of the three little fellows flashed in his mind one after another.
‘According to Martial Emperor Shi Qi’s words, it seems like Xue Nai is still the same. As for the three little fellows, I’m afraid I won’t be able to recognize them now since they’ve transformed into humans.’ Duan Ling Tian’s heart pounded when he thought of this.
“You said they’re Demon Emperor powerhouses?” Duan Ling Tian recalled Martial Emperor Shi Qi’s earlier words and looked at him.
“The yellow-clad girl was the leader of the duo… The white-clad little girl easily defeated me! With her strength, she could’ve killed me if she wanted to.”
Martial Emperor Shi Qi smiled bitterly and said, “What are they if they aren’t Demon Emperor powerhouses?”
Although human martial artists might be able to maintain their appearance after breaking through to the Martial Monarch Stage, the yellow-clad girl only looked about sixteen or seventeen years of age.
Was it possible for one to break through to the Martial Monarch Stage at fifteen or sixteen years old and maintain her youthful looks?
As for the white-clad little girl, she did not look like she was older than ten years old. It was even more unlikely for one to break through to the Martial Monarch Stage before the age of ten. That was why he was certain they were demons who had transformed into humans.
“Little White is so strong?” Duan Ling Tian was shocked when he heard Martial Emperor Shi Qi’s words.
He did not expect the little white python would become so powerful.
In his excitement, Duan Ling Tian left Martial Emperor Shi Qi and turned around to catch up to the people from Ling Xuan Peak. ‘That’s surprising… Even Little White broke through to the Martial Emperor Stage and became a Demon Emperor powerhouse.”
‘It would presumably be the same for Little Black and Little Gold, they should’ve become Demon Emperors as well…’
‘And Xue Nai too.’ Duan Ling Tian felt a bit sentimental when he thought about that mischievous yellow-clad girl.
He still remembered he met Han Xue Nai at the Azure Forest Imperial Kingdom’s Seven Star Sword Sect. At that time, he had guessed that Han Xue Nai was probably a young miss from a rich family and a powerful force in Darkhan Dynasty.
Later, he discovered Han Xue Nai was not from the Darkhan Dynasty. Then, he speculated that Han Xue Nai was from Cloud Continent’s Ancient Han Clan, but that did not seem like it.
“Xue Nai shouldn’t be from Cloud Continent… There are only two possibilities. She’s either from the Overseas Saint Islands or the Dao Martial Saint Land!”
Between the two possibilities, Duan Ling Tian preferred the latter.
Han Xue Nai was from the Dao Martial Saint Land.
Dao Martial Saint Land!
In Duan Ling Tian’s opinion, it was a strange place filled with the unknowns.
There were many powerhouses there, even Cloud Continent’s Martial Emperor powerhouses were only equivalent to an Innate Void Restoration Stage martial artist there.
The Innate Void Restoration Stage was nothing in the Dao Martial Saint Land.
Duan Ling Tian was familiar with some things on Dao Martial Saint Land thanks to Wang Ba’s soul that was hidden in his body. Wang Ba claimed he was a Saint Stage powerhouse.
Duan Ling Tian’s heart was as calm as the sea he was currently flying across.
He did not catch up to the people from Ling Xuan Peak because the people from Ling Xuan Peak had already arrived at the venue of the Hidden Fog Martial Competition. It was held at a vast and calm area of the sea.
Currently, the sky above that area was filled with people, it was densely packed. Duan Ling Tian could not help but wonder if everyone from the Hidden Fog Island was here.
Duan Ling Tian quickly found the two women and the people from Ling Xuan Peak and flew over to them.
“You’ve resolved it?” Yang Hui asked with a smile.
Duan Ling Tian nodded.
Meanwhile, at a place close to them, Zhou Yu, who was standing behind Martial Emperor Lei Ming and the group of people from Thundercloud Peak, suddenly changed his expression.
‘Why’s he here?’ Zhou Yi’s expression turned gloomy as he stared at the purple-clad young man in the distance.
He was naturally familiar with that purple-clad young man.
Duan Ling Tian was the one who had broken into Lost Stone Forest and tried to save Feng Tian Wu whom he had kidnapped.
The Sect Leader of Ling Tian Sect, Duan Ling Tian.
When he saw Duan Ling Tian, he immediately thought of the fierce battle between Duan Ling Tian and Martial Emperor Shi Qi.
‘Right… His stone tablet is already in my hands, he can no longer rely on the stone tablet. I have nothing to be afraid of.’
Soon after, Zhou Yi calmed down. Put aside the fact that his opponent could no longer rely on the mysterious stone tablet and use the secret technique, his strength was not what it used to be.
Currently, he had broken through to the Martial Emperor Stage. His strength had improved a lot compared to the past.
“I’ve studied the stone tablet for so long, but I still can’t figure out its secrets… It seems like even the Gods are helping me by leading him to me.”
Zhou Yi’s gaze on Duan Ling Tian suddenly brightened as though he saw an extremely precious treasure.
Previously, he had witnessed the purple-clad young man using the secret technique from the stone and the power it granted him.
Therefore, he concluded that his opponent knew how to use the stone tablet.
‘Once I learn how to use the stone tablet and the secret technique… Coupled with my current cultivation, even Martial Emperor Lei Ming won’t be a match for me.’ Zhou Yi could not help but feel excited when he thought of this.
While Zhou Yi was staring at Duan Ling Tian with glowing eyes, Duan Ling Tian was also looking at him.
However, Duan Ling Tian merely glanced at him before he turned to look at the old man standing in front of him. “He’s the master of Thundercloud Peak, Martial Emperor Lei Ming?”
Duan Ling Tian looked at Yang Hui and asked through Voice Transmission, “That Martial Emperor Lei Ming… Is he very strong?”
Although Yang Hui did not know why Duan Ling Tian was suddenly interested in Martial Emperor Lei Ming, he still responded. “Among all the known Martial Emperor powerhouses on Cloud Continent, Martial Emperor Lei Ming’s strength is on par with Martial Emperor You Han. Both of them are ranked top three among the strongest Martial Emperors!”
“So strong?” Duan Ling Tian was shocked when he heard that.
He had witnessed Martial Emperor You Han’s strength, she was very powerful.
With his current strength, even if Martial Emperor You Han did not utilize her Spirit Weapon and presented him with an opportunity to use the Colossal Aerolite Arrow, he would be at most evenly matched with her.
He managed to break Martial Emperor You Han’s Heaven and Earth Wipeout with his arrow previously because Martial Emperor You Han was unprepared.
If he had aimed his arrow at Martial Emperor You Han, she would have regained her senses in time and utilized her Spirit Weapon to block that shot.
Once Martial Emperor You Han utilized her Spirit Weapon, killing him would be easy.
His current strength was equivalent to the strength of Martial Emperor You Han when she was not using her Spirit Weapon. He was stronger than a Fourth Level Martial Emperor Stage martial artist but weaker than an ordinary Fifth Level Martial Emperor Stage powerhouse.
‘It seems that my only hope is to wait for the Hidden Fog Martial Competition to begin so that I can fight this Zhou Yi… Only then will I have the chance to kill him and snatch the Devilseal Tablet,’ Duan Ling Tian secretly thought.
With Martial Emperor Lei Ming there, he could not fight them directly. Otherwise, he might die.
Meanwhile, Zhou Yi was also thinking about how he could find a chance to threaten Duan Ling Tian so he would reveal the secrets of the mysterious stone tablet.
Sou! Sou! Sou!
Suddenly, the sound of wind whistling came from the distance.
Six figures were flying toward them from the distance, getting closer and closer.
Among the six people, a young man dressed in a green robe was in the lead. He was holding a folding fan in his hand and wore a silk kerchief on his head. He looked exactly like a scholar, radiating a gentle and suave demeanor.
An old man, a middle-aged man, and three young men followed behind him.
The six of them looked mighty and gave off a strong sense of oppression when they approached. Many people were overwhelmed to the extent that they could not breathe.
“Five Martial Emperor Stage powerhouses?” Duan Ling Tian stared at the five people behind the young scholar in surprise.
The five of them deliberately did not weaken their aura and their cultivation base at the Martial Emperor Stage. As long as one was above the Martial Emperor Stage, they would be able to sense it.
“Something’s wrong! There should be six of them.”
Soon, Duan Ling Tian’s eyes landed on the young scholar at the lead who was surrounded by the five Martial Emperor powerhouses. He must also be at the Martial Emperor Stage.
Moreover, he was definitely stronger than the five Martial Emperor powerhouses!
‘He’s the Hidden Fog Island’s Third Island Master?’ Duan Ling Tian guessed inwardly.
Based on what he knew, the Hidden Fog Martial Competition today was hosted by the Hidden Fog Island’s Third Island Master.
At this moment, a voice filled with admiration was clearly heard by Duan Ling Tian. “Martial Emperor Qing Xuan!”
