Translator: EndlessFantasy Translation Editor: EndlessFantasy Translation
Upon hearing Han Xue Nai, Duan Ling Tian, Ke’er, Li Fei and the rest from Ling Xuan Peak were stunned as they looked at Martial Emperor Qing Xuan who was approaching them in the air slowly.
Martial Emperor Qing Xuan was known the No. 1 powerhouse on the Cloud Continent! To be politically correct, he was known as the top guy to the public.
There were countless powerhouses in the two Ancient Clans on the Cloud Continent, so it would not be surprising if there was somebody more powerful than Martial Emperor Qing Xuan.
However, the two Ancient Clans’ powerhouses kept lower profiles, so not many people knew about their existence.
However, Duan Ling Tian was still shocked by the fact that Xue Nai had called Martial Emperor Qing Xuan “Little Xuan”.
At that moment, a variety of Chinese costume dramas that were showing on the planet Earth that he lived on in his past life was playing in his head.
“Isn’t calling someone ‘little’ a form of address by court nobles for eunuchs?” His lips twitched indistinctly as he thought amusedly about this.
“Miss Xue Nai.” At that moment, Martial Emperor Qing Xuan arrived before Han Xue Nai and bowed to her respectfully.
“Little Xuan, don’t tell me that you didn’t know I was on the Cloud Continent since I created such a major uproar… You’d just left not long ago when I looked for you. It seems like this Hidden Fog Martial Competition’s more important to you than my matter,” Han Xue Nai looked deep into Martial Emperor Qing Xuan’s eyes and huffed.
Martial Emperor Qing Xuan glanced at Duan Ling Tian, appearing to be a little embarrassed.
At that moment, Duan Ling Tian figured what had happened.
Martial Emperor Qing Xuan should have gone to the Hidden Fog Island after hearing about Han Xue Nai looking for him. However, he did not help her as the Hidden Fog Martial Competition was just around the corner.
“Hmph! I’ll definitely tell Qing Nu when I get back… I’ll tell her that you, Little Xuan, treated what I said like wind passing your ears,” Han Xue Nai scoffed.
“Miss Xue Nai.” Martial Emperor Qing Xuan looked terrible as he pleaded. He looked worse than he would if he had just received news about his parents’ death. “Wait… Could you not tell the old lady about this?”
He had a hidden secret.
Apart from his own hard work, the reason how he had managed to achieve what he had today was attributed to lessons that came from a mysterious senior.
The senior was an old lady when they first met. She helped him at length which brought about his achievements today.
By the time he met the old lady again many years later, he was the top person on the Cloud Continent.
He thought he had caught up to his past benefactor, but he realized that just like before, he was merely a tiny little ant compared to her.
The second time he saw the old lady was his first time meeting this young girl before him. The senior that he respected the most called this young girl “Young Miss” while the latter called her “Qing Nu”.
At that second, he realized that the senior he respected the most was simply a servant at the young girl’s home.
It was the same time that he discovered there was a vast world out there with countless powerhouses apart from the Cloud Continent and the Overseas Saint Islands.
It was Dao Martial Saint Land!
Throughout the years, he did not dare to slack although he already dominated the Cloud Continent because he wanted to go to Dao Martial Saint Land to attain a higher level.
“Sure, I won’t tell her… But I heard you obtained quite a number of Saint Stones ten days ago,” Han Xue Nai smiled cunningly. “I’ll forget about the whole thing if you give me two of those.”
“Miss Xue Nai, are you lacking Saint Stones?” Martial Emperor Qing Xuan forced a sheepish smile.
Naturally, he knew that she was just pulling his leg.
However, he handed two Saint Stones over to her obediently anyway.
His heart was bleeding when he handed over the Saint Stones. He was planning to use those Saint Stones to break through to the Ninth Level Martial Emperor Stage and even the peak level of Martial Emperor Stage.
“Hey, I heard that you’re a nice person from Brother Ling Tian. I’ll give these two Saint Stones to you.” After receiving the two Saint Stones, Han Xue Nai tossed them at Martial Emperor Ling Xuan Yang Hui casually like she was getting rid of trash.
Yang Hui grabbed them immediately with a mix of joy and fear on his face.
Although he knew that she was Duan Ling Tian’s friend, never would he have imagined that Martial Emperor Qing Xuan who he idolized most would be tamed like a domestic cat before this young girl despite the fact that he had witnessed how powerful she was.
At that very moment, he felt like he was dreaming.
Noticing Martial Emperor Qing Xuan’s furious eyes, the two Saint Stones were like hot yams in Yang Hui’s hands. He was helpless and scared.
“Martial Emperor Qing Xuan, please don’t hate me because of this!” He anxiously begged in his heart.
“Miss… Miss Xue Nai, Brother Ling Tian has already given me some Saint Stones. Why don’t I return these two Saint Stones to Master Qing Xuan? I…” Yang Hui looked at Han Xue Nai uncertainly.
However, she interrupted him with a dangerous glare before he was done speaking. “What? Are these too little for you?”
“No… No! Of course not!” Yang Hui panicked when he heard the disdain in Han Xue Nai’s tone. Even Martial Emperor Qing Xuan did not dare to offend this Young Miss, let alone him.
“Brother Yang, Xue Nai wants you to have them. Just take them,” Duan Ling Tian said to Yang Hui.
Yang Hui nodded and subsequently turned to Han Yue Nai to pay respect with cupped hands. “Thank you, Miss Xue Nai.”
“Saint Stones?” At that moment, the Ling Xuan Peak disciples who were following him showed doubts on their faces. It was their first time hearing about the Saint Stones.
However, they could tell that the Saint Stones were something precious.
It was no joke!
How could they be something ordinary if a Martial Emperor powerhouse valued it so much?
Ever since then, everyone from Ling Xuan Peak under Martial Emperor Ling Xuan Yang Hui was respectful towards Han Xue Nai. They did not dare to slack and treated her as a regal Young Miss.
They would depart to the main island of the Four Great Overseas Saint Islands, Half Moon Island ten days later.
For the next ten days, apart from cultivation, Duan Ling Tian learned martial tactics from Han Xue Nai.
Throughout the progress, he witnessed the Saint Grade Martial Tactic that Han Xue Nai had cultivated, which was the Dragon Mammoth Destruction Palm.
The dragon mammoth’s strength from the attack could kill the enemy in one blow.
The Dragon Mammoth Destruction Palm was like the Colossal Aerolite Arrow that he cultivated. They were both Primitive Human Rank Saint Grade Martial Tactic with great power.
In terms of close-ranged attacks, it was even more powerful than Duan Ling Tian’s Colossal Aerolite Arrow!
Duan Ling Tian learned something new from Han Xue Nai. “One can only cultivate the Human Rank Saint Grade Martial Tactic when they’ve entered the Innate Void Restoration Stage and that’s the most that they can cultivate… Can’t they cultivate the Saint Grade Martial Tactic of a higher level?”
The cultivation of the Saint Grade Martial Tactic depended on one’s cultivation base.
People with a low cultivation base could only cultivate the low-grade Saint Grade Martial Tactic while those with a high cultivation base could cultivate the high-grade version.
“No wonder my cheapskate father left me this Primitive Human Rank Saint Grade Martial Tactic… So, that’s the best that I can achieve for now.” Duan Ling Tian came to a realization.
“Not only that… According to Xue Nai, even people on the Mortal Shedding Stage and even the Saint Rudiment Stage can only cultivate the Primitive Human Rank Saint Grade Martial Tactic.”
“Only the powerful ones on the Saint Stage could cultivate a higher level Saint Grade Martial Tactic.” A gleam flashed through Duan Ling Tian’s eyes. “Does that mean that the Colossal Aerolite Arrow will keep me company for a long time?
“Also, I initially thought that the Saint Grade Martial Tactic is the same with martial skills on the Cloud Continent whereby it’s divided into attack, defensive and movement martial skills.
“Now that I’ve studied the Colossal Aerolite Arrow more in-depth and learned more from Xue Nai, I found out that the Saint Grade Martial Tactic includes three techniques which encompass attacks, defenses, and movements.
“For instance, apart from attack techniques, there are exclusive defense and movement techniques for the Colossal Aerolite Arrow that I’m cultivating… I’ve only learned the attack techniques for now. It’s only the tip of the iceberg.
“It lives up to its name of Saint Grade Martial Tactic of Dao Martial Saint Land. It’s amazing!” Duan Ling Tian exclaimed.
Apart from cultivating, Duan Ling Tian often sparred with Han Xue Nai who suppressed her strength when they sparred. Otherwise, it would be a piece of cake for her to defeat him.
However, even though she held back, he had witnessed how terrifying Han Xue Nai’s Dragon Mammoth Destruction Palm was.
“Xue Nai, the Ancient Clan Han Clan on the Cloud Continent’s considered a branch of your clan… Did they master the Saint Grade Martial Tactic as well?” Duan Ling Tian asked.
“Yes,” Han Xue Nai affirmed, “The Han Clan ancestor on the Cloud Continent was a collateral disciple of our clan. He passed down a Saint Grade Martial Tactic that originated from the Dragon Mammoth Destruction Palm.”
“The Saint Grade Martial Tactic’s called the Air Shadowless Palm. It’s a Prominent Human Rank Saint Grade Martial Tactic,” Han Xue Nai proceeded to explain, “It’s very different compared to the Dragon Mammoth Destruction Palm. Almost all of the most powerful people in the Han Clan, which are only a handful of people, have cultivated the Air Shadowless Palm.
“That’s the reason why Little Gold couldn’t defeat that old fella back then. Little Gold’s cultivation base was lower than his. Although the Saint Grade Martial Tactic she cultivated was more powerful than the old man’s, her comprehension of the Saint Grade Martial Tactic was far behind his.
“After all, Little Gold had just picked up the Saint Grade Martial Tactic not long ago when they fought,” Han Xue Nai revealed.
“Little Gold has cultivated the Saint Grade Martial Tactic too?” Duan Ling Tian was shocked.
“Not only Little Gold, even Little Black and Little White have done so too… But they’ve just started not long ago, hence their comprehension of the Saint Grade Martial Tactic’s just barely scraping the surface,” Han Xue Nai said.
“Hmm.” Duan Ling Tian nodded in understanding.
He too had just picked up the Saint Grade Martial Tactic not long ago, so his comprehension of the Saint Grade Martial Tactic was very basic.
If that were not the case, he would have had the confidence to defeat Martial Emperor You Han with his Second Level Martial Emperor Stage cultivation base.
Duan Ling Tian learned something new about the Saint Grade Martial Tactic after communicating with Han Xue Nai. He began to put in more effort studying the Saint Grade Martial Tactic Colossal Aerolite Arrow.
The Colossal Aerolite Arrow was the Primitive Human Rank Saint Grade Martial Tactic his cheapskate father had left him with and it was divided into a total of six techniques.
There were three techniques for attacking, two for movement and one for defending.
It was proven that the Colossal Aerolite Arrow was a Saint Grade Martial Tactic targeted mainly on attacking, movement second, and defending last.
Aerolite Strike, Aerolite Shower and Sound of Death were Colossal Aerolite Arrow’s three attack techniques.
