The Saint Vein was considered the foundation for the Martial Cultivators and Dao Cultivators of Dao Martial Saint Land. The more Saint Veins one opened up, the higher their achievements would be in the future.
Although the person who opened the most Saint Veins was not necessarily the strongest, they would have a very significant advantage.
“It seems like the Martial Cultivators and the Dao Cultivators of the Dao Martial Saint Land still have some other powerful moves later on… So much so as to enable them to ignore the gap between the number of Saint Veins,” Duan Ling Tian secretly thought as he became more and more excited about his cultivation journey in Dao Martial Saint Land.
Currently, his cultivation base had broken through to the Sixth Level Martial Emperor Stage.
As long as he continued to work hard on cultivating, he believed that with Saint Stones, he would be able to reach Martial Emperor Peak within a year. By that time, he could officially begin to break through to the Mortal Shedding Stage.
“I believe in the Nine Dragons War Sovereign Technique,” he thought with conviction.
The reason for his confidence in his ability to break through to the Martial Emperor Peak within a year was Duan Ling Tian’s blind faith in the Nine Dragons War Sovereign Technique.
The Nine Dragons War Sovereign Technique was a powerful cultivation method which was as famous as the Three Lives Rebirth Technique cultivated by the Rebirth Martial Emperor.
Nevertheless, the Three Lives Rebirth Technique cultivated by the Rebirth Martial Emperor was a whole level better than the top tier cultivation methods on the Cloud Continent such as the Han Bing’s Divine Sword Technique, the Galactic Star Technique, and the Demonic Beauty Divine Technique.
Regardless of whether it was one of the three techniques, they were all powerful cultivation methods which could be cultivated up to the Martial Emperor Peak.
If there was a cultivation method which was better than them, it could be considered the strongest cultivation method on the Cloud Continent!
“Three of Vice Island Masters of Half Moon Island are outside right now. When Xue Nai was coming over, she heard them speak of an Early Stage Mortal Shedding Stage sea demon which was guarding a treasure.”
“Previously, the Island Master of Half Moon Island, Di Yong, had tried to steal that treasure a few times, but he never succeeded.”
Duan Ling Tian said to Di Yong, “They thought that as long as you break through to the Intermediate Stage of the Mortal Shedding Stage, you’d be able to steal the treasure from the sea demon.”
“Treasure?” Di Yong’s eyes lit up when he heard Duan Ling Tian. “Let’s go! Let’s end this!” Hearing about the treasure, he became more excited than anyone else and he flew away immediately.
Without hesitating, Duan Ling Tian and Han Xue Nai followed him.
Beyond the misty mountains, three Vice Island Masters of Half Moon Island stood there silently without the slightest hint of impatience.
Shortly, their eyes lit up suddenly.
They instantly looked towards the figure flying out from the mountains. It was a tall, black figure which was familiar to them.
“Lord Island Master!” Facing the middle-aged man in black who flew out from the mountains, the trio including Xiao Kun bowed respectfully to him.
“Hmm.” The middle-aged man in black was none other than Di Yong who nodded faintly at the three Vice Island Masters of Half Moon Island who were bowing to him.
Naturally, this was not the previous Island Master of Half Moon Island, Di Yong. Even though it was still the same body, the soul had changed and he was completely a different person.
However, the three Vice Island Masters could not detect that.
Soon, Duan Ling Tian and Han Xue Nai emerged too and stood behind Di Yong. The appearance of the duo surprised the three Vice Island Masters.
“From now on, this man, Duan Ling Tian, is my direct disciple and also the new master of Half Moon Island!” Di Yong declared.
“What…?” The three Vice Island Masters were dumbfounded. Previously, the Island Master did not take a liking to Duan Ling Tian, did he?
Had he changed his mind at the last minute?
The more they thought about it, the more certain they were.
“I’ve decided to leave Half Moon Island after a few days to head to Dao Martial Saint Land. However, before leaving, you all must swear an oath on the Nine-Nine Heavenly Tribulation to pledge allegiance to my direct disciple,” Di Yong continued saying.
The three Vice Island Masters never expected Di Yong to announce that and their expressions changed drastically.
They were willing to stay by his side and become Vice Island Masters because they respected his strength.
They were willing to be under Di Yong.
However, every fiber of their being was reluctant to be under a young boy.
“What? Are there any difficulties?” Noticing the hesitation among the Vice Island Masters, Di Yong’s eyes turned cold and a vast aura exuded from his body. Instantly, it swept towards them.
Suddenly, the three men trembled and became pale as they spat blood out.
The pressure they felt was getting heavier and heavier as the feeling of suffocation made them despair.
At once, the three of them gave in.
Following that, under Di Yong’s fierce and piercing gaze, the three men swore an oath based on the Nine-Nine Heavenly Tribulation to stay loyal to Duan Ling Tian.
After that, Di Yong asked them to lead the way to the sea demon which was guarding the treasure.
“Lord Island Master, that sea demon has stayed in the west all this time.”
Under the guidance of the three Vice Island Masters of Half Moon Island, Duan Ling Tian and the rest arrived at the sea to the west of Half Moon Island. They headed west all the way and traveled for half an hour.
Above the vast and calm sea, a group of five stood unmoving.
“Go in!” After confirming that this was the correct place, a gentle force radiated from Di Yong’s body and instantly transformed into a transparent light shield which shrouded the five of them.
After that, he brought all of them, including Duan Ling Tian, to enter the sea.
Instantly, the calmness of the sea was disrupted and vast, rolling waves swept out one after another. The calamity did not stop for a long time.
At the same time, Di Yong led Duan Ling Tian and the rest into the deep sea.
After Duan Ling Tian observed the surrounding transparent light shield and sensed the aura of it, he murmured, “This isn’t Origin Energy…”
“Brother Ling Tian, it’s True Energy.” Han Xue Nai heard Duan Ling Tian’s murmur and explained, “When a Martial Cultivator’s cultivation base breaks through to the Mortal Shedding Stage, an energy pool will appear in their body and their Origin Energy will transform into a new force, which is the True Energy.”
“True Energy is a kind of force which is one level higher than Origin Energy,” Han Xue Nai said.
Duan Ling Tian understood and eventually became accustomed to the unusual.
“Where’s it?” Di Yong looked back and glanced at three Vice Island Masters.
“There.” The three of them quickly pointed towards a direction.
The whereabouts of the sea demon would change every once in a while. All this time, the three of them were personally pursuing the whereabouts of the sea demon, so they knew exactly where it was.
Under the guidance of the Vice Island Masters, Duan Ling Tian and the two other finally saw the sea demon.
That sea demon was lying deep in the sea, hidden amongst the algae in the deep waters.
“An octopus?” Approaching it, Duan Ling Tian noticed the details of the sea demon. It was an octopus. More accurately, it was an extra massive octopus which looked like a giant mountain.
The creature lay there like a mountain at the bottom of the sea.
“That’s…” Soon, Duan Ling Tian’s gaze shifted to one of the octopus’s tentacles as if he had just discovered something.
A pagoda as large as an adult was hovering there, wrapped in the tentacle.
From a distance, the pagoda looked very exquisite. Apart from that, it invoked an extremely special feeling within Duan Ling Tian.
It was a rather familiar feeling, but even Duan Ling Tian himself thought that he was misguided.
The Vice Island Masters looked at the pagoda in unison and said to Di Yong softly, “Lord Island Master, the treasure’s there.”
Di Yong’s eyes also landed on the pagoda.
“It doesn’t seem any different… Did you say it’s a treasure?” Han Xue Nai asked.
“Miss Xue Nai, you don’t know… This pagoda doesn’t seem special, but it wasn’t affected by the previous battles between the Lord Island Master and sea demon no matter how strong the aftershocks were,” Xiao Kun said with a dignified expression. “The power was blocked around a one-meter radius from it. Everything was blocked from it. There’s a force on its surface protecting it.”
“Just like it is now… The sea demon’s tentacle seems to be wrapping it, but in actuality, it isn’t even touching it,” Xiao Kun continued saying.
Listening to Xiao Kun, Duan Ling Tian, Han Xue Nai, and Di Yong looked over and noticed that the huge octopus’s tentacles did not, in fact, touch the pagoda.
There seemed to be a protective layer spanning about a meter that was preventing everything from going near it.
“He’s woken up!” Suddenly, Xiao Kun called out.
At the same time, Duan Ling Tian saw the huge octopus open its eyes which were as big as a washbasin and were gleaming with cold flashes.
The minute it woke up, it noticed Duan Ling Tian and the rest.
Immediately, it’s swift and piercing eyes locked onto Di Yong. To it, Di Yong was already an old pal.
Boom! Boom! Boom! Boom! Boom!
When the huge octopus moved, it was like hills toppling, and the earth was quaking on the whole seabed. The water stirred and caused the transparent light shield around Duan Ling Tian and the rest to shake.
However, it was a light shield supported by Di Yong’s True Energy after all, so it was not really affected.
“Hmph!” Di Yong snorted when he faced with the huge octopus rising. Then, he moved as he transformed into a bolt of black lightning, instantly shooting out.
The water stirred and parted, forming a long road, then the path closed moments later.
At the same time, a loud noise spread as the hills rose and fell and the earth trembled again.
“This…” In the next moment, all three Vice Island Masters of Half Moon Island were dumbstruck.
A hole seemed to have appeared on the head of the huge octopus. It was an enormous hole, large enough to fit a person. The hole had torn through the whole head of the huge octopus and killed it.
“The Lord Island Master’s strength…” After the Vice Island Masters regained their senses, they all seemed shocked. Had the powerful sea demon which used to be as strong as the Island Master just been killed by him in one move?
“That’s quite over the top!” Duan Ling Tian was shocked too.
“You… Are you from Yan Huang Land?” Suddenly, an old voice echoed in Duan Ling Tian’s ear, jolting him.
Yan Huang Land?
Was that not the name of the land of Hua in the ancient myths and legends of Hua from his previous life?
The people of Hua were the people of Yan Huang Land, also known as the descendants of Emperor Yan and Emperor Huang.
