Chapter 400: Mo Yu’s Natural Talent
Translator: KurazyTolanzuraytor Editor: Jay
“Mo Yu, long time no see.” Duan Ling Tian nodded with a smile to the person that had arrived before him.
The Seven Star Sword Sect disciples before him who was of similar age was precisely the Mo Yu that helped him take care of his Ferghana Horses.
After Mo Yu greeted Duan Ling Tian, he looked at the Grand Roc and for a time and he couldn’t help but be stunned on the spot.
When had he seen such an enormous flying beast?
He could imagine that once this flying beast were to spread its wings, it would simply be comparable to those clouds that covered the sky. It was extremely shocking.
Meanwhile, Linghu Jin Hong who stood atop the Grand Peng’s back sized up Mo Yu with interest as he asked. “Duan Ling Tian, he’s the friend you wanted to see?”
“You are?” Mo Yu looked at Linghu Jin Hong with a face full of wonder, as he obviously didn’t recognize Linghu Jin Hong.
Duan Ling Tian was just about to introduce him.
“Senior Brother Mo Yu, this is the Sect Leader.” A Seven Star Sword Sect disciple couldn’t refrain from telling Mo Yu in a low voice.
“Sect Leader?” Mo Yu was stunned, then he recovered from his short and said respectfully with a fearful expression, “Mo… Mo Yu greets the Sect Leader.”
Linghu Jin Hong shook his head and smiled when he saw Mo Yu’s fearful appearance and the gloominess on his face dispersed quite a bit.
Duan Ling Tian’s gaze had never left Mo Yu.
When his acute Spiritual Force extended out and combined with the lifetime worth of experience of the Rebirth Martial Emperor, he’d clearly sensed at the first possible moment that Mo Yu’s current cultivation was at the…
Sixth level of the Origin Soul Stage?
“Mo Yu… You’ve broken through to the sixth level of the Origin Core Stage?” Duan Ling Tian couldn’t help but be shocked.
Isn’t Mo Yu’s advancement too great?
He remembered that when he left the Seven Star Sword Sect two years ago to head to the Solitary Summit, Mo Yu was only at the first level of the Origin Core Stage at that time.
One year ago, when he returned from the Solitary Summit, Mo Yu had broken through to the third level of the Origin Core Stage, shocking him.
Now, another year had passed, and Mo Yu had actually directly broken through to the sixth level of the Origin Core Stage!
“Hehe.” Mo Yu rubbed the back of his head in embarrassment when he noticed Duan Ling Tian had discerned his cultivation.
“Sixth level of the Origin Core Stage?” Duan Ling Tian’s words attracted the attention of Linghu Jin Hong, and for a time, he seriously sized Mo Yu up.
This Seven Star Sword Sect disciple that looks to be of same age as Duan Ling Tian is a sixth level Origin Core Stage martial artist?
He remembered that Huang Ji who’d betrayed him and the Seven Star Sword Sect was only at the fourth level of the Origin Core Stage at the age of 22.
In other words, this Seven Star Sword Sect disciple’s natural talent far surpassed Huang Ji!
“Another freak.” Meng Qiu and Zheng Song glanced at each other and both saw similar meaning within each other’s eyes.
“You’re really at the sixth level of the Origin Core Stage?” Zheng Fan couldn’t refrain from looking at Mo Yu and asking.
A 22 year old sixth level Origin Core Stage martial artist was something that even shocked him.
Duan Ling Tian’s level of abnormality that couldn’t be looked upon with logic was only a minority after all…
“Sixth level of the Origin Core Stage at the age of 22… In terms of natural talent, it’s able to be compared with one or two of the people in the five great young masters.” Ke Zhen stared at Mo Yu with a burning gaze, as if he wanted to see through him.
“Mo Yu, display your strength for the Sect Leader and Peak Masters to see.” Duan Ling Tian was able to discern the doubt in Zheng Fan and Ke Zhen’s words, and he looked at Mo Yu as he smiled encouragingly.
Mo Yu nodded.
He’d always listened to anything Duan Ling Tian said.
The energy of heaven and earth roiled above Mo Yu, and 80 ancient mammoth silhouettes condensed into form, displaying Mo Yu’s cultivation.
“It really is the sixth level of the Origin Core Stage!” Zheng Fan was shocked. “Such natural talent… Throughout the younger generation of the Seven Star Sword Sect, I’m afraid it’s only below Duan Ling Tian!”
“Zheng Fan, you’re wrong.” Linghu Jin Hong shook his head and said slowly, “The Alkaid Peak’s Master, Qin Xiang’s, personal disciple, Ke Er, and the Alkaid Peak’s Elder Bi’s personal disciple, Li Fei… The former’s age is similar to Duan Ling Tian and the latter’s is elder to Duan Ling Tian by two years, and they’re both already Nascent Soul Stage martial artists.”
Linghu Jin Hong’s words caused Zheng Fan to be completely stunned.
Ke Zhen’s pupils constricted and said in astonishment, “I heard a long time ago that Peak Master Qin Xiang had taken a disciple with outstanding natural talent, but I never expected that her disciple would only be at the age of 22 and have already broken through to the Nascent Soul Stage! Throughout the Seven Star Sword Sect… No, even if it’s throughout the Azure Forest Imperial Kingdom, such natural talent is only inferior to Duan Ling Tian.”
Meng Qiu and Zheng Song were slightly moved as well.
They weren’t unfamiliar to Duan Ling Tian.
But they weren’t familiar of those two female disciples.
“I never expected that the two of us would lose to two female disciples.” Meng Qiu laughed bitterly.
Zheng Fan nodded in deep agreement.
Duan Ling Tian knew that Ke Er and Li Fei had broken through to the Nascent Soul Stage before they departed to the Demonic Lotusblade Sect one month ago.
The natural talent of the two girls weren’t inferior to him, and they even cultivated top cultivation methods that could be ranked in the top within Cloud Continent. So their cultivation advancing swiftly was nothing to be surprised about.
What caused Duan Ling Tian to be surprised was Mo Yu’s cultivation. “Mo Yu, why has your cultivation advanced so swiftly?”
Mo Yu rubbed the back of his head embarrassedly, as he said in embarrassment. “Senior Brother Duan Ling Tian, didn’t you give me one million silver before? I bought some Origin Strengthening Pills and after consuming them, my cultivating became even faster.”
Duan Ling Tian was instantly stunned when he heard Mo Yu. “You… Could it be that you didn’t use Origin Strengthening Pills to cultivate in the past?”
Mo Yu’s face dimmed. “I was born from a lowly background. To me, medicinal pills and other items that assist in cultivating were extremely far away… Senior Brother Duan Ling Tian, it’s perhaps difficult for you to imagine, but when I was at the Core Formation Stage, I had only consumed no more than 30 Origin Increasing Pills.”
“Later on when I arrived at the Seven Star Sword Sect, I found this work of taking care of horses and became a horse keeper. Although I had an extra salary, I was barely able to buy some Origin Strengthening Pills. One year ago, the reason why I was able to break through to the third level of the Origin Core Stage was precisely because I consumed an Origin Strengthening Pill.”
When he spoke up to here, Mo Yu grinned. “Now, my cultivation has broken through to the sixth level of the Origin Core Stage and I’m already able to go slightly deeper into the primeval forest to hunt some formidable fierce beasts… The Beast Cores, skin, fur, and scattered parts of those fierce beasts are sufficient to support the Origin Strengthening Pills I need for cultivation now.”
An Origin Strengthening Pill was a medicinal pill used by Origin Core Stage martial artist when cultivation, and it was able to increase the speed of cultivating to a certain extent.
An Origin Strengthening Pill was only a basic medicinal pill to Duan Ling Tian, Linghu Jin Hong, and the others, and it was nothing worth mentioning.
In their eyes, this type of medicinal pill was nothing.
But, in the eyes of Mo Yu, or perhaps in the eyes of Mo Yu in the past, it was instead extremely valuable.
“Senior Brother Duan Ling Tian, if it wasn’t for the one million silver you gave me a year ago, it would have been impossible for me to break through to the sixth level of the Origin Core Stage, and it would be impossible for me to provide for myself.” Mo Yu looked at Duan Ling Tian with a face full of gratitude.
Meanwhile, a nearby Seven Star Sword Sect disciple couldn’t refrain from saying to Duan Ling Tian, “Senior Brother Duan Ling Tian, originally, Senior Brother Mo Yu was already at the sixth level of the Origin Core Stage now and entirely doesn’t have to do this work of taking care of horses… But he still comes here every few days just for the sake of taking care of your and Senior Sister Li Fei’s Ferghana Horse.”
Duan Ling Tian was slightly moved.
He never expected that the one million silver he casually gave Mo Yu would actually help Mo Yu so much, and he never expected even more than just because of this little favor, although Mo Yu had already become a little well off now would still not forget to help him take care of his Ferghana Horse…
Mo Yu’s character could be discerned from this.
Duan Ling Tian lifted his hand and placed it onto Mo Yu’s shoulder before lightly patting Mo Yu, then sighed. “I never imaged that you had such a past… In this way, it would seem that your cultivation ought to have been encumbered and buried quite a bit. Otherwise, with your natural talent, your accomplishments would be even higher!”
“Senior Brother Duan Ling Tian, you’re too kind.” Mo Yu rubbed his nose in embarrassment and had a modest expression.
At this moment, everyone including Linghu Jin Hong were petrified.
According to what this Mo Yu said, he practically didn’t consume any medicinal pills while cultivating to his current cultivation?
“If what he said is true… Then once he’s given similar terms as me, wouldn’t he be able to break through to the seventh level of the Origin Core Stage now, or even higher?” Zheng Song recovered from his shock and had an astonished expression.
As for Linghu Jin Hong, the other two higher-ups of the Seven Star Sword Sect, and Meng Qiu, they all had similar thoughts.
They never imagined that such a shiny piece of gold was actually buried within the Seven Star Sword Sect.
“Duan Ling Tian, you asked Elder Peng to descend here precisely because you wanted me to see him, right?” Linghu Jin Hong’s gaze descended onto Duan Ling Tian with interest, and within this gaze was a trace of unnoticeable gratitude.
“Exactly.” Duan Ling Tian nodded. “Sect Leader, what do you think?”
The scene before him caused Mo Yu to be dumbstruck.
Senior Brother Duan Ling Tian made the Sect Leader come see me?
See me for what?
He was puzzled in his heart.
Linghu Jin Hong took a slow breath, then looked at Duan Ling Tian and said sincerely, “Thank you.”
Even if it was a month before when Duan Ling Tian obtained the first in the Martial Competition of the five great sects in the Demonic Lotusblade Sect, Linghu Jin Hong has only said thank you via voice transmission.
Presently, he’d said thank you in front of so many people.
A word of thanks coming straight from the mouth of the Seven Star Sword Sect’s Leader could be considered to be as heavy as Mt. Tai…
At this moment, Zheng Fan and Ke Zhen glanced at each other and they couldn’t help but be moved.
Of course, they were able to feel the happiness contained in the Sect Leader’s tone, it was sincere gratitude that came from the heart.
“Duan Ling Tian, what are you and the Sect Leader talking about?” Meng Qiu had a dazed expression.
Zheng Song had a curious expression as well, as he hadn’t wrapped his head around what was happening.
Ke Zhen raised his head and slapped Meng Qiu on the back of the head, then derided. “Kid, you can’t even make this out? Duan Ling Tian is choosing a personal disciple for the Sect Leader… This little fellow is really not bad. If everything he said before is true, then his natural talent is absolutely not inferior to any one of the five great young masters.”
“Even if all that isn’t true… His natural talent and character still far surpasses that Huang Ji!” Zheng Fan nodded in deep agreement.
Now, Meng Qiu and Zheng Song had finally completely understood.
As for Mo Yu, he’d been dumbstruck since a long time ago.
“Duan Ling Tian is choosing a personal disciple for the Sect Leader… Duan Ling Tian is choosing a personal disciple for the Sect Leader…” Ke Zheng’s words endlessly reverberated within his mind.
Choosing a personal disciple for the Sect Leader?
Could they be talking about me?
