Translator: EndlessFantasy Translation Editor: EndlessFantasy Translation
In a secluded and mysterious place in the Dao Martial Saint Land.
Deep in the mountains surrounded by clouds, a figure soared up into the sky from a gigantic cave and headed straight for the horizon, dominating the sky.
As the clouds in the sky scattered, his figure gradually emerged.
It was a golden-robed middle-aged man with a huge built. His face was handsome, and his complexion was as clear as jade. His eyes looked majestic without looking fierce. He was like a tower as he hovered in the air, his manner imposing.
“It has been 30 years since I went into closed-door cultivation… I wonder how Yong’er is doing,” the middle-aged man muttered to himself suddenly. A rarely-seen gentle expression appeared on his noble face. It was as though the word ‘Yong’er’ held a magical ability.
As though he was reminded by something, the golden-robed middle-aged man’s face suddenly darkened, and the gentleness on his face disappeared without a trace. “Hurmph! If it wasn’t because of those old men keeping an eye on me constantly, I wouldn’t have to wait until now to leave… Give me another 1,000 years, and I no longer have to fear those few geezers.”
The middle-aged man’s body flashed across the sky. After a few moments, he already appeared in a secluded canyon in a deeper part of the mountains. The canyon was covered in weeds. It was very obvious that few had come here.
Parting the weeds, the middle-aged man walked into a secluded cave.
Initially, the cave was as dark as the night sky, but as the middle-aged man took a few turns, a ray of light appeared before his eyes… When the middle-aged man walked toward it, the light turned brighter. In the end, it became a little too dazzling.
However, the middle-aged man did not seem to be affected by the dazzling light at all. He kept moving forward until he reached the source of the light.
The cave was spacious, and pearls were piled up high like mountains.
These pearls were the source of the dazzling white light.
If Duan Ling Tian was here, he would be able to identify the mountainous pile of pearls was Luminous Pearls with just a glance. Moreover, the smallest of the pearls was at least as big as an adult man’s fist. The big ones were remarkable! They were the size of a basketball. Anyone of it would be considered as an invaluable treasure in the Mortal Continent.
However, in the golden-robed middle-aged man’s eyes, these Luminous Pearls were mere accessories, and they did not interest him at all.
After he walked past the cavern that was filled with Luminous Pearls, the golden-robed middle-aged man entered a small cavern.
The small cavern was plainly furnished. Apart from a bed, there was only a table. Currently, both the bed and the table was covered in a layer of dust.
“Yong’er!” The golden-robed middle-aged man cried out shrilly at this moment. A terrifying aura rose from his body as invisible airwaves swept out, causing the bed and table to shake.
Currently, the golden-robed middle-aged man’s gaze was fixed on the surface of the table.
An exquisite box laid open on the table. It was filled with glittering crystal fragments. If one were to put these fragments together, they would form a tiny transparent pearl. To be more precise, it was a Soul Pearl.
The Soul Pearl was a pearl that stored part of a human or beast’s soul. It was used to determine if someone was alive or not.
If the Soul Pearl was intact, it meant that the owner of the Soul Pearl was alive. However, if the Soul Pearl was shattered, it meant that the owner of the Soul Pearl was already dead.
The golden-robed middle-aged man was so enraged that his vital blood and energy rushed to his heart. Without any warning, he spat out a mouthful of blood that covered half the cavern.
The golden-robed middle-aged man’s body was trembling violently as he said in an extremely cold voice, “I don’t care who it is! You killed my Yong’er so I’ll slaughter your entire clan!” A thunderous sound wave swept out and overturned the bed and table in the small cavern.
The golden-robed middle-aged man suddenly roared loudly as he threw his head back. In the next instant, a golden ray shot out of his body. It was like the glorious light emitted from the sun.
Boom! Boom! Boom! Boom! Boom!
In the next moment, the earth quaked and the small cavern was split open by an unknown force.
Apart from that, the huge cave and the entire mountain that hid all these small caverns suddenly crashed, setting off the dust that soared up into the sky.
At the same time, deep dragon roar spread out in all directions.
A shimmering gold divine dragon rose up into the sky from the center of the collapsed mountain. Golden light emitted out of his body like a burning golden flame.
As he roared, the golden dragon that was hundreds of meters long soared up higher into the clouds.
The clouds trailed after the dragon as he circled around it.
If one were here, one would be able to see that each of the golden divine dragon’s paw had five claws… There was no doubt it was a Five-clawed Divine Dragon. Moreover, it was a Five-clawed Golden Dragon.
In the dragon clan in the Dao Martial Saint Land, the Five-clawed Divine Dragon was undoubtedly the most powerful dragon.
However, there was a hierarchical division among Five-clawed Divine Dragons as well.
The Five-clawed Devil Dragon was the most terrifying one. Followed by the Five-clawed Golden Dragon.
Almost all of the Clan Leaders of the dragon clans were Five-clawed Golden Dragons… Only a Five-clawed Golden Dragon was worthy to lead the entire dragon clan.
As for the other Five-clawed Divine Dragons, they were, at most, elders who assisted the dragon clan’s Clan Leader to manage the clan.
“Di Jue?” Due to the huge commotion, the Five-clawed Golden Dragon created, three old men were attracted to it. These three old men had huge builts and looked like towers as well.
Currently, they were frowning as they looked at the Five-clawed Golden Dragon that kept circling around the clouds.
The Five-clawed Golden Dragon soared up to the clouds. He lifted his huge head as his big eyes landed on the three old men. “It’s because of you geezers! If it weren’t for you old men, Yong’er wouldn’t have died!” When the Five-clawed Golden Dragon reached the end of his sentence, he roared angrily.
“Di Yong?” One of the old men was stunned. “Didn’t he die a long time ago?”
“Hurmph! Can’t you tell from his words? Just as the Clan Leader had suspected, Di Yong didn’t die previously! He was hidden away by his father, Di Jue!” The other old man snorted. “It looks like our dragon clan must thank whoever helped kill Di Yong for helping us to eliminate the trouble!”
“Di Jue, how dare you?! How dare you ignore the clan’s rule! Today, no matter what, I’ll restrain you and bring you back to see the Clan Leader to face your crime!” The last old man snarled angrily.
The Five-clawed Golden Dragon roared angrily again. In the next instant, the gigantic writhing body that was hundreds of meters long shuddered as a tail struck like a gigantic whip at the three old men.
“Di Jue, how dare you!” The three old men did not expect Di Jue to be so audacious and reckless. He actually dared to attack them! They were furious and reverted to their true forms immediately.
In just a blink of an eye, another three divine dragons appeared.
However, these three divine dragons were only Four-clawed Divine Dragons… Although they were only Four-clawed Divine Dragons, their strength was remarkable as well. The three of them joined forces and managed to withstand the attack from the Five-clawed Golden Dragon.
“Seize him! Bring him to the Clan Leader, and let the Clan Leader decide on his punishment!” One of the green Four-clawed Divine Dragons roared. His gigantic body that was several hundreds of meters long quivered as it twined around the Five-clawed Golden Dragon, binding him like a hemp rope.
Another Four-clawed Divine Dragon rushed over and used two claws to hold the Five-clawed Golden Dragon’s head tightly.
Seeing how the last Four-clawed divine Dragon was charging toward him as well, the Five-clawed Golden Dragon sensed the danger he was in. He suddenly shone brightly as though he had transformed into a dazzling sun.
At the same time, a bloody line appeared between his brows.
“Innate Secret Tactic! Di Jue, you’re crazy! How can you use your blood essence to activate your Innate Secret Tactic?!” At this moment, the Four-clawed Divine Dragon who was charging at the Five-clawed Golden Dragon came to a halt, there was a horrified expression his face. There was a hint of panic in the eyes of the two Four-clawed Divine Dragons who were twined around and holding the Five-clawed Golden Dragon.
Boom! Boom! Boom! Boom! Boom!
In the next instant, streaks of golden light exploded in the sky like a golden flame.
The three Four-clawed Divine Dragons were all swallowed by the golden flame.
Meanwhile, the Five-clawed Golden Dragon had also gotten rid of his restraint. However, there was no joy at being freed at all in his eyes. Instead, dread could be seen in them.
His gaze was fixed in the distance.
There was a Five-clawed Divine Dragon that was traveling through the clouds as three of its claws held onto the three Four-clawed Divine Dragons. Only God knew if they were alive or dead. Naturally, they were the dragons that the three old men had transformed into earlier.
The Five-clawed Divine Dragon was fully crimson. It’s bloody-looking scales looked formidable as it gleamed.
Five-clawed Blood Dragon!
Among the Five-clawed Divine Dragons in the dragon clan, it was only inferior to the Five-clawed Devil Dragon and the Five-clawed Golden Dragon.
Unlike the 400 meters long Five-clawed Golden Dragon, this Five-clawed Blood Dragon was more than 500 meters long… His body was even bigger than the Five-clawed Golden Dragon, and it emitted an oppressive aura.
“Di Jue, you’re too reckless!” Suddenly a thunderous voice resonated in the sky. The Five-clawed Blood Dragon said, “Not only did you selfishly rescue a Five-clawed Devil Dragon, but you also ignited the blood essence and used the Innate Secret Tactic to hurt your own clan members! You’ve committed crimes upon crimes! Do you admit to your crime?” The Five-clawed Blood Dragon’s eyes flashed as he asked in his deep voice.
“Elder Xue, I admit to my crime.” In the face of the Five-Clawed Blood Dragon, the Five-clawed Golden Dragon felt fearful.
Although he was a Five-clawed Golden Dragon and had an innate talent that was far greater than the Five-clawed Blood Dragon, the Five-clawed Blood Dragon in front of him was an old powerhouse in the dragon clan.
He was born earlier than Di Jue by thousands of years.
He was no match for him at all.
“Since you’ve admitted your crime, follow me to the Enforcement Hall!” The Five-clawed Blood Dragon ordered.
“Elder Xue, I’ll definitely go to the Enforcement Hall. However, I must leave the dragon clan before that! I must find the person who killed my son to avenge him!” The Five-clawed Golden Dragon bellowed.
“Di Jue, are you trying to bargain with me?” A hint of impatience began to show in the Five-clawed Blood Dragon’s voice.
“Elder Xue, I know it’s impossible to go against you with my current strength. However, I won’t follow you to the Enforcement Hall even if I have to ignite all my blood essence!” The Five-clawed Golden Dragon was extremely determined.
