Chapter 397: Gifting The Pill
Translator: KurazyTolanzuraytor Editor: Jay
Right when the attention of everyone had descended on the Profound Nascent Pill in Duan Ling Tian’s hands.
“Senior Brother Zheng Song!” Duan Ling Tian suddenly turned to look at the nearby Zheng Song.
His actions startled Zheng Song. “Junior Brother Duan Ling Tian, what is it?”
“Senior Brother Zheng Song, didn’t you say you want this Profound Nascent Pill? Now, I’ve got it, and I’ll gift it to you.” Duan Ling Tian passed the Profound Nascent Pill in his hand to Zheng Song with a light smile.
As if he what he was gifting wasn’t the legendary Profound Nascent Pill but was instead a medicinal pill that was beyond ordinary…
“Ah!” Zheng Song was startled by this and couldn’t react for a time.
“Duan Ling Tian wants to gift away the Profound Nascent Pill?”
“Has he gone mad? This Profound Nascent Pill is able to increase a martial artist’s natural talent for half a year, a marvelous medicinal pill capable of allowing the martial artist’s cultivation to advance by leaps and bounds, and is something that can be encountered by luck but not sought after… He actually wants to gift it away?”
“Madman! This Duan Ling Tian is really a madman!”
“With his natural talent, if he were to consume the Profound Nascent Pill, then he’d surely be able to break through to the fifth level of the Nascent Soul Stage…”
“The world of a madman isn’t something we can understand.”
For a time, the disciples of the various sects shook their heads as they sighed with emotion.
Duan Ling Tian’s current actions were truly inconceivable.
The Profound Nascent Pill was a medicinal pill of legend, a pill that had a price but no market, a pill that could be encountered by luck but not sought after…
Now, Duan Ling Tian actually wanted to gift it away?
Presently, even the higher-ups of the five great sects all had dumbstruck expressions.
Especially the Demonic Lotusblade Sect’s Leader, the corners of his mouth twitched.
This Duan Ling Tian wouldn’t be intentionally provoking him right?
“Junior Brother Duan Ling Tian, this Profound Nascent Pill is too valuable and I can’t take it.” Although the gaze Zheng Song shot at the Profound Nascent Pill was filled with burning desire, he still shook his head and refused Duan Ling Tian’s kindness.
As far as he was concerned, the effect this Profound Nascent Pill could display in the hands of Duan Ling Tian was far stronger from the effect it could display in his.
If Duan Ling Tian were to consume this Profound Nascent Pill, then he would surely be able to break through to the fifth level of the Nascent Soul Stage within half a year!
At that time, Duan Ling Tian’s strength would be even stronger.
“Senior Brother Zheng Song, if you don’t take it, then I’ll toss it away.” Duan Ling Tian frowned.
To an ordinary martial artist, this Profound Nascent Pill couldn’t be considered a treasure, but to him it was no different than lowly grass.
When he consumed sufficient 10,000 Year Stalactite Milk that day, his natural talent had already reached the limit.
If it’s someone with natural talent that had reached the limit, then even if they consumed the Profound Nascent Pill, it would be of no help at all.
The Profound Nascent Pill was only of use to a martial artist whose natural talent hadn’t reached to limit.
“Duan Ling Tian, don’t be rash!” The three higher-ups of the Seven Star Sword Sect were anxious, as they felt Duan Ling Tian was recklessly misusing great things.
If it wasn’t for Duan Ling Tian being a person who’d rendered meritorious service to the Seven Star Sword Sect now and was the future of the Seven Star Sword Sect, they would even have the heart to strangle him to death.
That was a Profound Nascent Pill!
A medicinal pill that could be called a treasure to a Nascent Soul Stage martial artist… The level of its preciousness wasn’t any inferior to a spirit fruit.
Duan Ling Tian actually wanted to toss it away?
Besides the Seven Star Sword Sect’s three higher-ups, everyone else wished for nothing more than to strangle Duan Ling Tian to death.
“Duan Ling Tian is intentionally vexing everyone?”
“He actually said he would toss away the Profound Nascent Pill? That’s too vexatious!”
The disciples of the various sect’s gnashed their teeth.
Meng Qiu within the pergola looked at Zheng Song with an expression of envy. If Zheng Song were to consume the Profound Nascent Pill, then after half a year, Zheng Song’s cultivation would be sufficient to surpass him.
Right when the attention of everyone had descended on the Profound Nascent Pill in Duan Ling Tian’s hand.
“Senior Brother Zheng Song!” Duan Ling Tian abruptly shouted out explosively, and it was incomparably sudden.
“Ah!” Zheng Song shuddered when he heard Duan Ling Tian’s explosive shout, and he unconsciously opened his mouth in reply.
It was right at this instant.
Duan Ling Tian raised his hand and the Profound Nascent Pill transformed into a flowing light that directly shot into Zheng Song’s mouth, and the moment Zheng Song closed his mouth, the Profound Nascent Pill’s medicinal strength instantly dissolved within his mouth, fusing into his body…
Zheng Song was stupefied.
He’d eaten the Profound Nascent Pill?
All of this was too sudden, and it was slightly unexpected to him.
“Junior Brother Duan Ling Tian, you…” Zheng Song had a bitter smile on his face, he’d never expected that Duan Ling Tian would take action so suddenly and forcefully shoot the Profound Nascent Pill into his mouth.
Within the Martial Competition Courtyard, it was completely deathly silent.
Duan Ling Tian’s actions had startled everyone present.
“Duan Ling Tian really gifted away the Profound Nascent Pill?”
“This Seven Star Sword Sect disciple’s luck is too good, right?”
“How nice would it be if Duan Ling Tian tossed that Profound Nascent Pill into my mouth.”
“Stop dreaming! This Seven Star Sword Sect disciple surely has a good relationship with Duan Ling Tian, otherwise, Duan Ling Tian wouldn’t gift the Profound Nascent Pill to him.”
Numerous gazes of envy and jealousy descended onto Zheng Song in unison, causing Zheng Song to have a bitter smile on his face and feel slightly uneasy.
The three higher-ups of the Seven Star Sword Sect frowned, and at practically the exact same instant, their voice transmissions entered Duan Ling Tian’s ears.
“Duan Ling Tian, you’re too rash! That Profound Nascent Pill was sufficient to allow you to step into the fifth level of the Nascent Soul Stage in a short amount of time, how could you gift it away?” Duan Ling Tian was able to discern that this was the voice of Linghu Jin Hong.
“Duan Ling Tian, what should I say about you? That kid’s natural talent is limited, even if he consumed the Profound Nascent Pill, his improvement wouldn’t be as great as you, it’s such a waste!” This was the voice of the Mizar Peak’s Master, Zheng Fan, who was also the father of Zheng Song.
“Duan Ling Tian, you… That was foolish of you! If you consumed that Profound Nascent Pill, it wouldn’t be long before you broke through to the fifth level of the Nascent Soul Stage. The two year agreement between you and Zither Young Master will arrive in another year, how could you not think for yourself?” This was the Phecda Peak’s Master, Ke Zhen, and his tone contained a mix of a sigh and helplessness.
The three voice transmissions cause Duan Ling Tian’s heart to feel warm.
Duan Ling Tian naturally knew the three of them were concerned about him, so he hurriedly sent a voice transmission in reply. “Sect Leader, Peak Masters… All of you only saw the use of the Profound Nascent Pill. But do all of you know that the higher the natural talent of the martial artist, the less the effect of the Profound Nascent Pill?
“My natural talent if something all of you have seen, and this Profound Nascent Pill is useless to me! Since it’s like this, why shouldn’t I help Senior Brother Zheng Song?”
Duan Ling Tian’s words caused the three Seven Star Sword Sect higher-up to come to a sudden understanding.
This was something they’d never thought of earlier.
“No matter how small a mosquito is, it’s still a piece of meat… Giving the Profound Nascent Pill to that kid is too wasteful,” Zheng Fan said via voice transmission with a bitter smile.
“Peak Master Zheng Fan, is Senior Brother Zheng Song really your son?” Duan Ling Tian was stunned and couldn’t refrain from asking.
Zheng Fan never expected Duan Ling Tian would suddenly ask such a question, and he was instantly depressed.
Right at this moment, Zheng Song who stood by Duan Ling Tian’s side said with a bitter smile, “Junior Brother Duan Ling Tian, giving the Profound Nascent Pill to me is too wasteful.”
“Senior Brother Zheng Song!” Duan Ling Tian’s expression became serious as he said in a clear voice. “Do you know why I seized first place in the Martial Competition today?”
“Wasn’t it for the sect?” Zheng Song asked.
“This is only one of the reasons.” Duan Ling Tian looked at Zheng Song and smiled lightly. “Earlier, when the Demonic Lotusblade Sect’s Leader took out the Profound Nascent Pill and proclaimed that it would be the prize for the first in the Martial Competition, didn’t I ask you if you were interested in the Profound Nascent Pill?”
Zheng Song nodded as he remembered of course.
Moreover, as far as he was concerned, he was far more than just being interested in the Profound Nascent Pill…
Besides Duan Ling Tian who was like a ‘different species,’ there was probably no one amongst the disciples of the various sects present here that wouldn’t be interested towards the Profound Nascent Pill.
“Since that moment, I’d already decided that I would surely seize first in the Martial Competition… Besides competing for the glory for the Seven Star Sword Sect to repay the Sect Leader for all his help, at the same time, I wanted to obtain the Profound Nascent Pill to gift you, to repay the many times you and Peak Master Zheng Fan have assisted me in the Seven Star Sword Sect.” Duan Ling Tian finished speaking in one go.
At this moment, when they heard Duan Ling Tian’s words, everyone present came to a sudden understanding.
So it turned out that everything Duan Ling Tian did was to repay debts of gratitude.
For a time, many people has a good impression of Duan Ling Tian, as this was a person that knew how to owe a debt of gratitude and try to repay it…
“Gifting away a Profound Nascent Pill that’s of extraordinary value for the sake of repaying a debt of gratitude… Duan Ling Tian’s resolution is shocking.” A Snow Moon Sect disciple couldn’t refrain from sighing.
His words caused everyone to nod in deep agreement.
Presently, Duan Ling Tian had obtained the acknowledgement of most of the people that were present.
Zheng Song’s figure lightly trembled when he heard this, then he sighed with a bitter smile on his face. “Junior Brother Duan Ling Tian, there was no need for you to do this. What I and my father owe you is much more than what you owe us… Today, you giving the Profound Nascent Pill to me has instead caused me to owe you even more…”
In the distance, Zheng Fan sighed as well.
It was exactly as Zheng Song had said.
What the two of them owed Duan Ling Tian was really too much, and they were unable to repay it.
The Martial Competition of the five great sects came to an end.
The Seven Star Sword Sect disciple, Duan Ling Tian, seized the glory of first place in the Martial Competition!
“Seizing the glory of first place in the Martial Competition at the age of 22… Duan Ling Tian has created an unprecedented record! This record is something I’m afraid even the people of the future generations will be unable to break.” The Snow Moon Sect’s Leader sighed. His gaze had a sheen of envy and jealousy mixed within as it descended onto Linghu Jin Hong.
Now, he’d realized that wanting to poach Duan Ling Tian from the Seven Star Sword Sect to the Snow Moon Sect was almost impossible.
Earlier, what Duan Ling Tian said to Zheng Song has undoubtedly displayed that Duan Ling Tian was a person that that knew how to owe a debt of gratitude and try to repay it…
A person like this would absolutely not be ungrateful and betray the sect.
This was something that the Snow Moon Sect’s Leader firmly believed.
Through the reminder to the Snow Moon Sect’s Leader, and the people present reacted. “Right, Duan Ling Tian has created a shocking record! Participating in the Martial Competition of the five great sects at the age of 22 and seizing the glory of first… It could be said to be unprecedented and will never be broken!”
In next to no time, Duan Ling Tian noticed that numerous gazes filled with reverence gathered onto him from all around.
He’d become the center of attention.
