Chapter 171: Little Python’s Breakthrough
Translator: KurazyTolanzuraytor Editor: Lucas
“Smack!” The Su Clan’s Patriarch, Su Bo Ya’s, face sank and his palm crashed downwards onto the armrest of his seat, causing it to be forcefully smashed into pieces.
In terms of natural talent in the Martial Dao, Su Tong surpassed him at the same age.
As far as he was concerned, under the lead of Su Tong, the Su Clan would surely reach even greater glories in the future…. However, now everything was destroyed by the hands of an ignorant child!
“Patriarch, that Duan Ling Tian attacked too viciously; we can’t let this matter go like this!”
“Yeah, if he isn’t punished, how would we uphold the face of our Su Clan!?”
“He must be punished severely!”
All the Su Clan elders were filled with righteous indignation and were incomparably enraged.
“Grand Elder, I’ll leave this matter for you to handle. The Su Clan will support you with its entire strength!” Su Bo Ya’s gaze descended onto Su Nan, as he was clear in his heart that Su Nan was the most enraged among the people present.
Su Tong was Su Nan’s own grandson after all!
“Thank you, Patriarch.” Su Nan was slightly excited when he heard what Su Bo Ya said, and his eyes emitted a vicious lustre that seemed as if it could swallow someone whole.
As far as he was concerned, no matter who it was, at the moment his grandson’s Dantian was crippled, that person had stepped past the gates of hell….
He wouldn’t pay attention to the reasons within, and he didn’t care if it was his grandson who provoked the matter or not; all he knew was that what he had to do was burn the bones and scatter the ashes of the person who crippled his grandson!
On a large tree on a side of the Martial Arts Practice Grounds.
Nine Dragons War Sovereign Technique, Raging Python Form!
Duan Ling Tian cultivated for the entire afternoon, and only when dusk approached did he notice his cultivation bottleneck loosen up slightly….
“If nothing unexpected happens, then I’ll probably be able to breakthrough within this month.” Duan Ling Tian’s eyes flickered and a trace of a smile appeared on the corners of his mouth.
The current him was finally able to increase his cultivation to his heart’s content like a normal Core Formation martial artist. As for the tempering of the fleshly body for the Raging Python Form, it was handed to the Dragon Blood Pill to complete.
A single Dragon Blood Pill was sufficient to allow his fleshly body to instantly completely its tempering with Origin Energy!
Duan Ling Tian, who was in high spirits, jumped off the large tree and watched Xiao Yu and Xiao Xun spar with the other students for a while before leaving Paladin Academy with the two.
“Duan Ling Tian, take care.” Xiao Yu and Xiao Xun had serious expressions as they reminded Duan Ling Tian.
After all, Duan Ling Tian was now facing the entire Su Clan, which was a colossus that couldn’t be taken lightly.
“Don’t worry.” Duan Ling Tian nodded, and a warm feeling ran through his heart.
Duan Ling Tian suddenly stopped dead in his tracks after leaving Paladin Academy and parting ways with Xiao Yu and Xiao Xun.
At this moment, he could feel the restlessness of the two little pythons that were concealed within his sleeve, and it caused his face to sink unconsciously. He became vigilant.
The Su Clan members had moved so quickly?
Duan Ling Tian’s body moved after taking a deep breath. As if transforming into a bolt of lightning, he quickly concealed himself in the deserted alley that he killed the two Duan Clan ninth level Origin Core martial artists the other day.
Duan Ling Tian had only just taken two steps.
Accompanied by two strong gusts of wind, two aged figures surrounded Duan Ling Tian from the front and back, causing him to have nowhere to run.
These were two old men over the age of 70, but their eyes were even more spirited than a youth’s; they flickered with a breathtaking bright light. It was obvious that their cultivation levels weren’t low.
At the first moment, Duan Ling Tian relied upon the memories of Rebirth Martial Emperor and his own formidable Spiritual Force to roughly deduce the cultivation levels of the two. The cultivation levels of these two old men should probably be at the fourth to the sixth level of the Nascent Soul Stage.
In terms of strength, they were far from the Third Prince’s estate manager, Hu San, that Duan Ling Tian killed last night.
“The Su Clan looks down on me in such a way? They think the two of you are sufficient to kill me?” Duan Ling Tian’s eyebrows rose and a trace of a sneer appeared on the corners of his mouth.
“Su Clan?” The two old man were obviously dazed when they heard what Duan Ling Tian said.
The old man that stood before Duan Ling Tian looked at Duan Ling Tian with a calm gaze as he slowly said, “Duan Ling Tian, looks like you’ve made quite a lot of enemies…. However, we aren’t members of the Su Clan.”
“Not members of the Su Clan?” Duan Ling Tian was dazed as he thought this in his heart.
Could it be people the Fifth Prince sent?
Or maybe they are people that Duan Clan’s second master, Duan Ru Lei, sent?
“Duan Ling Tian, you killed two elders of my Yu Clan and two outstanding disciples…. Today is the day you lose your life!” the old man who stood behind Duan Ling Tian said, with a cold and indifferent voice that was like ice, as if it came from the depths of a thaw hole.
Duan Ling Tian’s eyes focused as he came to an understanding.
“Never had I expected that just to kill me, you two would personally rush over from such a faraway place like Swallow Mountain County’s County City…. You really make me feel overwhelmed by the unexpected favor. However, aren’t you two afraid I might make you two stay in the Imperial City forever?” Duan Ling Tian guessed the identity of the two old men. As he finished speaking, the corners of his mouth curled into an evil smile.
Members of the Swallow Mountain County’s County City’s Yu Clan! This was the clan that Yu Hong and Yu Xiang, who incurred enmity with him at the Iron Blood Army, were from.
“Bullsh*t!” The old man that blocked before Duan Ling Tian grunted coldly. He didn’t speak anymore nonsense as his body moved and he abruptly attacked.
Above his head, 600 ancient mammoth silhouettes condensed into form… Fourth level of the Nascent Soul Stage!
The strength of this old man was much stronger than the Yu Clan’s Grand Elder that once intercepted Duan Ling Tian and tried to kill him.
The old man behind Duan Ling Tian moved right after the one in front. Another fourth level Nascent Soul martial artist!
“Little Black, Little White, I’ll leave it up to you….” Duan Ling Tian muttered in a low voice.
In the next moment, he abruptly raised his hand.
A white and a black bolt of lightning flew out at the same time in separate directions from inside his sleeve. Their speed was swift to the limit, causing piercing whistling sounds to explode in the ears of the people present.
In the sky, besides the 1,200 ancient mammoth silhouettes drawn upon by the two old men, 1,200 more ancient mammoth silhouettes appeared out of thin air…. A herd of mammoths danced wildly!
The two old men, whose imposing manner shot through the sky as they flashed towards Duan Ling Tian, never could have imagined that Duan Ling Tian would actually have such a trump card on hand. Their eyes emitted a strand of dread when they saw two fierce beasts with cultivations not one bit inferior to theirs flashing over towards them.
Right at this moment, their minds were in turmoil.
A bloody hole instantly opened up in each of their chests, and their eyes that were originally buoyant with spirit, dimmed down.
Two corpses crashed onto the ground, dying with everlasting regret.
If they knew beforehand that Duan Ling Tian had two fierce beasts guarding him, even if they weren’t a match for the two little pythons, they wouldn’t have been killed so quickly.
The surprise attack of the two little pythons caused the two of them who were similarly at the fourth level of the Nascent Soul Stage to have little to no opportunity to defend against it. When they had reacted to it, there was already no chance of them surviving!
“Little Black, Little White, not bad. I’ll get the kitchen to especially fry two bowls of meat for the two of you once we get home.” Duan Ling Tian praised the two little pythons.
The intelligent, small eyes of the two little pythons flickered with an excited brilliance when they heard that there would be meat to eat…
“The Yu Clan is like a haunting soul that just doesn’t want to leave.” Duan Ling Tian sneered before putting away the two little pythons within his sleeve.
As far as he was concerned, these two Yu Clan old fellows had virtually made such a long journey just to give away their lives.
Duan Ling Tian condensed some Pill Fire after taking the two old men’s Spatial Rings and burned their corpses into ash. Only then did he leave as if nothing had happened.
Maybe it was because Hu San’s Spatial Ring from yesterday gave Duan Ling Tian such a pleasant surprise, but the few million silver within the two Yu Clan old men’s Spatial Rings didn’t cause any fluctuation in Duan Ling Tian’s mood…. However, if there was money to gain easily, then it would be a waste to not take it.
Night slowly descended.
After dinner, Duan Ling Tian made true of his promise and asked the kitchen to fry two bowls of the two little pythons’ favorite mouse meat.
Of course, it wasn’t any ordinary mouse meat, but a third level Core Formation fierce beast, the Subterranean Mouse.
“Little White, even if it’s tasty, don’t eat so much. Look at you, you’ve eaten to the point that you’re going to burst, right?” A voice pleasant to the ear mixed with a trace of reprove sounded. It was the voice of Ke Er as she lightly rubbed the little white python’s bulging stomach.
The two little pythons lied on the table with their stomachs protruding out. They were unable to move for very long time.
Duan Ling Tian and Li Fei were sitting at a side. They couldn’t help but burst into laughter when they saw this scene.
“Hmm?” Suddenly, Duan Ling Tian’s, Ke Er’s, and Li Fei’s gazes descended upon the two little pythons.
They noticed that the markings on the bodies of the little pythons were currently flickering with a glow…
The golden markings on the little black python and the silver markings on the little white python slowly flickered and became even more dazzling by the moment.
In the end, the little black python was completely enveloped in a golden light, and as for the little white python, it was enveloped by a silver light.
Suddenly, Duan Ling Tian noticed that strands of brilliant light descended from the skies.
“This is… Lunaray Force?” Li Fei exclaimed.
“So this is the Lunaray Force?” Duan Ling Tian was slightly surprised. He still remembered how the Galactic Star Technique he passed on to Li Fei utilized Lunaray Force and Sunbeam Force to cultivate. They would be gathered within the body and then condensed into Origin Energy.
However, never had he imagined that the two little pythons were actually capable of drawing upon the Lunaray Force!
According to the memories of Rebirth Martial Emperor, only special cultivation methods were capable of drawing upon the Lunaray Force, and the Galactic Star Technique Li Fei cultivated was precisely one of these special cultivation methods.
The Lunaray Force poured down as if it were casting a gentle veil upon the night sky.
“This….” Duan Ling Tian noticed that the Lunaray Force that poured down actually resonated with the silver light in the surface of the little white python’s body, and the two joined together…
Subsequently, the gold light on the little black python’s body was unwilling to fall behind, as it too converged with the silver light on the little white python’s body.
The three sources of light merged together.
After half an hour, the Lunaray Force withdrew itself; the golden light on the little black python and the silver light on the little white python slowly faded away as well.
Duan Ling Tian’s formidable Spiritual Force noticed the changes that occurred to the two little pythons at the first possible moment.
They seemed to have broken through!
Fifth level of the Nascent Soul Stage!
Before long, the two little pythons flipped their bodies around and stood up straight. They flicked their tongues as their gazes descended upon the remaining fried meat before lowering their heads and starting to eat once more.
Their stomachs that were bulging to the point that they seemed like they were about to burst had sunk down, as the food they had eaten before had now been completely digested.
Duan Ling Tian and the two girls beside him gazed at each other. They didn’t know what had just happened.
“What type of snake are you two little fellows, actually? So bizarre.” Duan Ling Tian laughed bitterly. He vaguely perceived how the origins of these two little pythons weren’t simple.
From everything they had just revealed, it wasn’t impossible for them to even metamorphose into Demon Beasts in the future….
