Chapter 379: Elder Peng
Translator: KurazyTolanzuraytor Editor: Jay
Needless to say, the medicinal strength of the Jade Origin Fruit was extremely domineering.
Duan Ling Tian had only spent an entire day and night, and he’d already broken through!
There were still another two days before they departed.
Duan Ling Tian spent the remaining time to the two little girls…
Just like this, two days passed in the blink of an eye.
Dubhe Peak, Dubhe Hall.
Seven figures were gathered together.
Three middle aged man with extraordinary bearing and four Seven Star Sword Sect inner court disciples.
“You’re Duan Ling Tian?” A middle aged man in sky blue robes shot his gaze that was brimming with vigor at Duan Ling Tian, and at the same time, a terrifying imposing manner enveloped out to press itself onto Duan Ling Tian.
However, Duan Ling Tian instead remained unmoved.
He stood there, not moving like a mountain, as if he would remain unfazed even if Mt. Tai were to collapse.
“As expected of the number one genius in the history of our Seven Star Sword Sect, you’re worth of your reputation.” In next to no time, the blue robed middle aged man withdrew his imposing manner and praised.
“Duan Ling Tian, this is the Peak Master of Phecda Peak, Ke Zhen.” The Peak Master of Mizar Peak, Zheng Fan, who stood nearby, lightly smiled as he introduced to Duan Ling Tian.
“Peak Master Ke Zhen.” Duan Ling Tian greeted the blue robed middle aged man.
Relying on his acute Spiritual Force and the lifetime worth of memories of the Rebirth Martial Emperor, Duan Ling Tian could vaguely perceive that this Peak Master of Phecda Peak seemed to be an expert that had stepped into the second stage of the Void Stage, the Void Initiation Stage.
The Void Stage was divided into four stages.
The first Void Stage, the Void Prying Stage.
The second Void Stage, the Void Initiation Stage.
The third Void Stage, the Void Interpretation Stage
The fourth Void Stage, the Void Transformation Stage.
“Sect Leader, you don’t intent to take Duan Ling Tian as your personal disciple?” Ke Zhen nodded with a smile to Duan Ling Tian then looked at the nearby Linghu Jin Hong. “If Sect Leader has no intention of taking Duan Ling Tian as a personal disciple, then I won’t be courteous…”
Ke Zhen’s words displayed his thoughts of wanting to take Duan Ling Tian as his personal disciple.
Duan Ling Tian smiled bitterly
When did I become such a hot cake?
Linghu Jin Hong hadn’t even spoken when Zheng Fan had already started laughing. “Ke Zhen, I and Sect Leader both think we have no qualification to be Duan Ling Tian’s Master… Could it be that you think you have sufficient qualification? If Duan Ling Tian takes you as his Master, what do you have to teach him?”
Ke Zhen’s face froze when he heard this.
Exactly, if Duan Ling Tian were to take me as a Master, what do I have to teach Duan Ling Tian?
Force and Concept relied more on individual comprehension, and others weren’t able to affect it.
As for sword skills and other various combat methods.
As an existence who could kill a first level Nascent Soul Stage inner court disciple while only at the ninth level of the Origin Core Stage, would Duan Ling Tian need me to teach him?
When he thought up to here, Ke Zhen shook his head and laughed in self ridicule. “I really forgot this… Indeed, not to mention our Seven Star Sword Sect, even throughout the entire Azure Forest Imperial Kingdom, Darkstone Empire and the Darkhan Dynasty, there might not be a person who possessed the qualifications to be Duan Ling Tian’s Master.”
A master delivered teachings and cleared confusion.
If he wasn’t even able to do this, then how would he be a master?
At this moment, Ke Zhen could perceive that the reason the Sect Leader didn’t take Duan Ling Tian as a personal disciple wasn’t because he didn’t intend to, but because he felt he didn’t have the qualifications.
“Hmph!” The nearby Huang Ji coldly swept Duan Ling Tian with his gaze and snorted secretly.
Ke Zhen saying this was undoubtedly indirectly saying that he, Huang Ji, the personal disciple of the Seven Star Sword Sect’s Sect Leader, was inferior to Duan Ling Tian!
After all, Duan Ling Tian was someone that even his Master, the Sect Leader of the Seven Star Sword Sect, didn’t have the qualifications to take as a disciple…
“Get ready to depart.” Suddenly, Linghu Jin Hong spoke indifferently.
Duan Ling Tian was stunned.
It was at this moment, that the sound of wind and a bird sounded out in the distant horizon.
An enormous black shadow descended from behind the distant clouds and mist, and it passed through to appear before the eyes of Duan Ling Tian and the others.
“This is…” Duan Ling Tian’s pupils constricted as he gaze at the enormous flying demon beast before him.
This flying demon beast was a Grand Roc. Its entire body was dark grey and when it opened its wings, it was like clouds that covered the sky.
It didn’t possess the sharp feathers like the Dark Roc that Zither Young Master rode, and its feathers were no different from the feathers of an ordinary fierce beast, seeming to be extremely ordinary.
However, its sharp claws that flickered with cold light were sufficient to cause one to be terrified…
It was like a sharp weapon that could destroy anything!
Most importantly, at the instant this Grand Roc appeared, Duan Ling Tian sensed that its aura was extraordinary, to the extent that it was not inferior to Zheng Fan and Ke Zhen.
Duan Ling Tian took a deep breath and couldn’t help but extend his Spiritual Force out, desiring to inspect the strength of this Grand Roc.
However, when Duan Ling Tian’s Spiritual Force touched the Grand Roc, a strand of cold light suddenly flashed past the originally dim eyes of the Grand Roc, and the gaze covered in an icy cold sheen that shot at Duan Ling Tian caused him to shudder and hurriedly withdraw his Spiritual Force.
“Little fellow, you’re not bad… You actually possess such a strong Spiritual Force at such an age.” Right at this moment, an aged voice sounded out in Duan Ling Tian’s ears.
“Who?!” Duan Ling Tian was stunned, he was able to discern that this voice transmission wasn’t sent by any of the people present.
Right when Duan Ling Tian was looking around.
“What a naïve little fellow.” The voice transmission sounded out once again.
This time, Duan Ling Tian reacted, and he was completely dumbstruck as he gazed at the Grand Roc that was flying downwards swiftly.
It was this Grand Roc that was speaking to me?
Demon beast condensing Origin Energy into sound?
According to the memories of the Rebirth Martial Emperor, Duan Ling Tian knew very well that condensing Origin Energy into sound was something a seventh level Origin Core Stage human martial artist was able to utilize, but if it was a demon beast, it instead had to step into the Void Initiation Stage to be able to condense Origin Energy into sound.
“This is a Void Initiation Stage demon beast?” After he recovered from his shock, Duan Ling Tian felt a chill run down his spine.
The intuition of a demon beast was innately more acute than humans.
Duan Ling Tian’s Spiritual Force was something even Linghu Jin Hong was unable to notice, where this Void Initiation Stage demon beast was able to notice it at the first possible moment.
The Grand Roc’s enormous figure descended swiftly outside Dubhe Hall with a bang, giving rise to dust and dirt that covered the sky.
Right at this moment, Duan Ling Tian saw that everyone present including Linghu Jin Hong respectfully bowed to the Grand Roc.
Whereas the Grand Roc nodded like a human, then its eyes descended onto Duan Ling Tian before looked at Linghu Jin Hong, seeming to be asking something.
“Elder Peng, he’s Duan Ling Tian and is the disciple with the strongest natural talent in the history of our Seven Star Sword Sect… Presently, he’s only 22 years old, but his cultivation has already stepped into the second level of the Nascent Soul Stage!” Linghu Jin Hong respectfully introduced Duan Ling Tian to the Grand Roc.
When the Grand Roc heard this, its sharp eyes contained a sense of surprise.
Obviously, he was shocked by Duan Ling Tian’s natural talent in the Martial Dao as well.
Second level of the Nascent Soul Stage?
Not only did what Linghu Jin Hong say shock the Grand Roc, even the Zheng Fan and Ke Zhen were moved now.
Although they knew that Duan Ling Tian had already stepped into the ninth level of the Origin Core Stage one year ago, if Duan Ling Tian was only at the first level of the Nascent Soul Stage now, they wouldn’t be surprised. After all, Duan Ling Tian’s natural talent was there for all to see.
However, Duan Ling Tian had actually broken through to the second level of the Nascent Soul Stage!
“Junior Brother Duan Ling Tian, you… You’ve broken through to the second level of the Nascent Soul Stage?” Zheng Song looked at Duan Ling Tian with a surprised expression.
Amongst the young disciples of the Seven Star Sword Sect, only he was acquainted with Duan Ling Tian.
Duan Ling Tian laughed lightly, but didn’t affirm it nor deny it.
However, Duan Ling Tian’s current attitude instead caused Zheng Song to be deeply convinced.
The other two people were respectively the personal disciple of Sect Leader Linghu Jin Hong, Huang Ji, and the personal disciple of Peak Master Ke Zhen, Meng Qiu.
Meng Qiu was a young man with an ordinary appearance, and his age was slightly younger than Zheng Song.
Presently, the gaze he shot at Duan Ling Tian was filled with shock.
22 year old second level Nascent Soul Stage martial artist?
“Hmph! If it wasn’t for the Jade Origin Fruit that Master bestowed to him, would he be able to break through to the second level of the Nascent Soul Stage?” Huang Ji’s voice sounded out abruptly, and traces of jealousy was mixed within.
For a time, everyone present came to a sudden understanding, so it turns out that Duan Ling Tian consumed a Jade Origin Fruit.
“Sect Leader, what extravagance! You actually bestowed a spirit fruit like the Jade Origin Fruit to Duan Ling Tian…” Ke Zhen couldn’t help but sigh with emotion. He could feel the great hopes that Linghu Jin Hong had entrusted to Duan Ling Tian.
“Jade Origin Fruit!” Zheng Fan and Zheng Song both revealed expressions of shock.
Meng Qiu looked at Duan Ling Tian and his eyes contained traces of envy…
If he was able to obtain a Jade Origin Fruit, he was confident of directly stepping into the fifth level of the Nascent Soul Stage once he consumed it!
Before Duan Ling Tian had appeared, Meng Qiu’s natural talent was able to be ranked at the second amongst the younger generation Seven Star Sword Sect disciples that were below 30.
Only below Huang Ji and surpassing Zheng Song!
But unfortunately, the appearance of Duan Ling Tian had completely thrown this ranking into disorder.
The three of them were all smashed by Duan Ling Tian’s outstanding natural talent, and could only place themselves behind Duan Ling Tian.
Duan Ling Tian was the presently publically acknowledged number one in the Seven Star Sword Sect…
Even to the extent that within the long flow of history in the Seven Star Sword Sect since it was established, a monster like Duan Ling Tian had never appeared, and Duan Ling Tian’s natural talent could be considered to be unprecedented.
“Hmph!” Huang Ji’s sudden interruption caused Linghu Jin Hong to be slightly displeased, and he grunted coldly. “Even if Duan Ling Tian didn’t consume the Jade Origin Fruit, even if Duan Ling Tian was only at the first level of the Nascent Soul Stage… Do you think you can compare to him? What cultivation did you possess when you were at the same age as Duan Ling Tian?” Linghu Jin Hong’s words contained a sense of disappointment that Huang Ji didn’t live up to his expectations.
Huang Ji lowered his head when taught a lesson by Linghu Jin Hong, as he had no means to refute him.
“Second level of the Nascent Soul Stage?” Duan Ling Tian shook his head and smiled.
The Sect Leader and everyone else all seemed to think that he only broke through to the second level of the Nascent Soul Stage after consuming the Jade Origin Fruit.
“Duan Ling Tian.” Meanwhile, Linghu Jin Hong looked at Duan Ling Tian and introduced the Grand Roc who’d withdrawn his wings that were like clouds that covered the sky and stood there like a small hill. “This is Elder Peng, he’s also our Seven Star Sword Sect’s Sect Guardian Revered Elder…. Elder Peng is the senior with the highest seniority in our Seven Star Sword Sect.”
It undoubtedly displayed that the time this Grand Roc existed was even longer than the two great Guardian Elders of the Seven Star Sword Sect.
