Chapter 432: Who’s Teaching Who?
Translator: KurazyTolanzuraytor Editor: Jay
After Feng Tian Wu finished introducing the Soulcleanse Pool, her gaze unnoticeably shot at Duan Ling Tian’s hand, and her eyes flickered with a complicated sheen.
If it was any ordinary person, they might not have noticed her minute movements, however, how strong was Duan Ling Tian’s Spiritual Force, he’d noticed at the first possible moment.
“What? You like it?” Duan Ling Tian held up the necklace made from rainbow colored gems and the Luminous Pearl and passed it over to Feng Tian Wu. “For you.”
Feng Tian Wu’s beautiful face flushed red first, then she seemed to have recalled something and faintly sighed. “Big Brother Duan, you should keep it to give the two sister-in-laws…”
Duan Ling Tian was able to feel the sense of loss in Feng Tian Wu’s words, he shook his head as he smiled and forcefully pushed the necklace made from rainbow colored gems into Feng Tian Wu’s hand, and when she was touched by him, she shook as if she was touched by lightning.
“This necklace is for you, I’ll keep the Luminous Pearl for myself… You’re not allowed to refuse it.” As Duan Ling Tian finished speaking, his tone was filled with dominance.
Duan Ling Tian knew clearly in his heart that regardless of if it was the Luminous Pearls of the necklace made from rainbow colored gems, the Chang Clan and Qian Clan’s Patriarch had only given such ‘apologies’ to him because they were afraid of enraging Feng Wu Dao.
After all, in their eyes, he’d already become the son-in-law of Feng Wu Dao.
It could be said that he’d obtained these two things as a benefit from being associated with Feng Wu Dao, and giving it to Feng Tian Wu was logical.
“Thank you Big Brother Duan.” Feng Tian Wu lowered her head and was slightly embarrassed.
The necklace made from rainbow colored gems were clenched tightly by her, as if she was extremely afraid she would lose it.
In next to no time, Feng Tian Wu brought Duan Ling Tian to a large independent courtyard.
“Grandpa Kong.” Under Feng Tian Wu’s lead, Duan Ling Tian went to see the old man with her.
The old man wore grey clothes, and he gave others an unfathomable feeling as he stood there.
Duan Ling Tian understood that this old man ought to be the great Inscription Master that Feng Wu Dao spoke of, and is also the owner of the formidable Spiritual Force from a few days ago.
“Elder Kong.” Duan Ling Tian lightly nodded to the old man.
The old man nodded to Duan Ling Tian as well, then looked at Feng Tian Wu with a pair of muddy eyes that emitted a sense of affection. “Young Miss, why have you come here to my place?”
“Grandpa Kong, Father asked you to properly guide Elder Brother Duan’s skill in inscriptions… I won’t disturb the two of you.” Feng Tian Wu smiled to the old man then bid her farewells to Duan Ling Tian before turning and leaving.
For a time, only Duan Ling Tian and the old man remained.
Duan Ling Tian’s eyes emitted a trace of gratitude.
He was able to discern that Feng Tian Wu wanted to help him, but unfortunately, he entirely didn’t need anyone to guide him in the art of inscriptions…
After all, at the same time that Duan Ling Tian had fused with the lifetime worth of memories of the Rebirth Martial Emperor, Duan Ling Tian had also mastered everything the Rebirth Martial Emperor had learned in the art of inscriptions during his lifetime.
As far as he was concerned, in the entire Cloud Continent, there wasn’t a single Inscription Master that possessed the qualifications to guide him in the art of inscriptions.
“Little fellow, the Young Miss is extremely good to you, you can’t let her down… Otherwise, this old man absolutely won’t forgive you.” The grey clothed old man’s gaze were like torches and his words contained no lack of warning.
Duan Ling Tian only smile indifferently towards this.
“Since the Eldest Young Master and Young Miss have spoken, then this old man will guide you in the art of inscriptions… How much you can learn will depend on your own ability. Let me ask you, how much do you understand about the art of inscriptions?” The grey clothed old man’s words contained the style of an erudite person.
How much do I understand about the art of inscriptions?
Duan Ling Tian shook his head and smiled, then slowly spoke, one by one speaking of some of the elementary understandings of the art of inscriptions within the Rebirth Martial Emperor’s memories.
After half an hour.
The old man’s expression had transformed from the beginning stunned expression to an expression of disbelief, then finally to an expression of astonishment.
“You… You…” In the end, the old man completely lost his composure, and even spoke with a slight lisp.
The gaze the old man shot at Duan Ling Tian was completely different now, there wasn’t any of the belittling gaze from before, and there was only reverence.
Because a great deal of the views Duan Ling Tian spoke of caused him to be suddenly enlightened, and many things that he was perplexed or bewildered about had now been readily solved.
“How should the materials be arranged for the various level of Wind Concept in the Windblade Inscription?”
“How do I make the Aurora Inscription completely obstruct the field of vision of the enemy? How do I inscribe it successfully?”
Gradually, the old man who was supposed to be guising Duan Ling Tian was now being guided by Duan Ling Tian.
The old man knew not of exhaustion as he asked.
“Alright, Elder Kong, we’ll have another exchange when we’re free.” Duan Ling Tian answered a huge pile of questions for the old man, and he felt a wave of speechlessness.
The old man’s strength and Spiritual Force was strong, and this was something that he admitted, but Feng Wu Dao actually called the old man a great Inscription Master with that level of skill in the art of inscription? It was truly difficult for him to accept this.
If even that is a great Inscription Master, then what was he?
An Inscription Ancestor?
When Duan Ling Tian left, the old man still hadn’t recovered from his shock and still muttered to himself, occasionally frowning and occasionally easing up.
As if he’d suddenly become enlightened towards something.
“Oh, Big Brother Ling Tian, that geezer has finally finished asking?” On the way back, the little gold mouse’s voice transmission sounded out by his ear.
Early on when the old man started asking that pile of questions, the little gold mouse had already laid down on Duan Ling Tian’s shoulder and fallen asleep.
“I don’t care if he’s finished or not, I didn’t come here to be his teacher.” Duan Ling Tian rolled his eyes and had an indifferent expression.
“Hehe… That City Governor Feng said to ask that geezer to guide Big Brother Ling Tian, but in the end, the old man’s own ability is inferior to Big Brother Ling Tian.” The little gold mouse’s voice transmission was filled with complacency.
As if the one who guided the old man in the art of inscriptions wasn’t Duan Ling Tian, but her.
Not long after Duan Ling Tian returned, Feng Tian Wu brought along servants that held steaming hot food into the room.
“Tian Wu, eat with me.” Meanwhile, Duan Ling Tian invited Feng Tian Wu to stay and eat with him.
The two of them chatted as they ate.
“Big Brother Duan, were your gains great at Grandpa Kong’s place? Grandpa Kong is an extremely formidable great Inscription Master, and many people want to ask him to provide them with guidance, but have no chance.” Feng Tian Wu said slowly.
Feng Tian Wu’s words caused the corners of Duan Ling Tian’s mouth to twitch.
What gains could he possibly have?
“Tian Wu… You should ask Elder Kong about this.” Duan Ling Tian shook his head and smiled, then continued to eat and didn’t say anything more.
“Hmm?” Feng Tian Wu had a bewildered expression when she heard Duan Ling Tian as she didn’t know what Duan Ling Tian meant by this.
“Squeak squeak~” The little gold mouse cried out lightly when she heard the content of Duan Ling Tian and Feng Tian Wu’s chat, and a smiling expression appeared in her jade green eyes.
At the same time that Duan Ling Tian and Feng Tian Wu were eating.
Feng Wu Dao had arrived before a spacious and independent large courtyard. “Elder Kong.”
“Eldest Young Master, please enter.” Along with an aged voice sounding out from within the large courtyard, Feng Wu Dao walked in.
In next to no time, Feng Wu Dao noticed the old man standing there with a dumbstruck expression while muttering some words, seeming to be recalling something.
“Elder Kong, I came here this time because I want to ask something of you… During this period of time, if Duan Ling Tian who defeated Wu on the Groom Search Competition’s arena were to ask you for guidance in the art of inscriptions, I hope you can be generous with your instructions.” Feng Wu Dao spoke to the old man with a tone that contained slight respect mixed within.
The old man had already been following by his side since he was young, and the relationship between the two was no different than a normal pair of father and son.
“Eldest Young Master, don’t make fun of this old fellow.” The old man returned to his senses, and his aged face was covered in a bitter smile.
“Hmm?” Feng Wu Dao was stunned, as it was the first time he’d seen the old man reveal such an expression. “Elder Kong, why do you say this?”
The old man sighed deeply. “As the saying goes, people of exceptional ability emerge in every generation, and the new replace the old… Today, this old man has completely understood the meaning of these words.”
Feng Wu Dao had a bewildered expression as he didn’t know what the old man was talking about.
“The Young Miss brought that little fellow over a short while ago, and asked me to guide him in the art of inscriptions… At that time, I asked him to explain his own understanding of the art of inscriptions.” As he spoke up to here, the old man stopped for a moment and his eyes emitted slight astonishment.
“Who knew, that in the end, it became he who was guiding me… I noticed that his understanding of the arts of inscriptions had practically attained the level of perfection!” When he spoke up to here, the old man’s voice was slightly trembling.
Feng Wu Dao was stunned. “Elder Kong, you aren’t joking, right? Might it be that he was talking at random…”
“Impossible!” The old man shook his head and had a serious expression. “Eldest Young Master, I don’t dare compare my research in the art of inscriptions with the ‘Foreign Lands’… However, in the entire Darkhan Dynasty and even the other few great dynasties, there are really few people that are able to compare with me in the art of inscriptions!”
“Not only did that little fellow speak views and understandings that caused me to be shocked, he even answered my various questions on the art of inscriptions. He didn’t even have to think before answering me when I asked him a great deal of questions that have perplexed me for many years. Moreover, his answers were just right and extremely perfect!” As he spoke up to here, the old man’s Origin Energy poured into the Spatial Ring in his hand.
Instantly, light shone in all direction!
The dazzling white colored strong light practically covered the entire heavens and earth…
Even Feng Wu Dao couldn’t help but narrow his eyes and say in astonishment. “What a formidable Aurora Inscription… Even a ninth level Void Initiation Stage martial artist would surely be disturbed if caught off guard! Elder Kong, you’ve succeeded?”
Feng Wu Dao knew that the old man was researching the Aurora Inscription for many years.
“Yes, I’ve succeeded.” The old man nodded, then laughed bitterly. “Even I never imagined that the Aurora Inscription that had perplexed me for many years was easily inscribed under the guidance of that little fellow… Moreover, the effect has exceeded my expectations!”
Feng Wu Dao was stunned, completely stunned.
It was Duan Ling Tian who guided the old man and allowed the old man to be able to inscribe the Aurora Inscription?
He didn’t dare believe that all this was true.
“Elder Kong… He’s at most around the age of 22, how could this be possible?!” Feng Wu Dao was still unable to believe it.
“If I didn’t see it with my own two eyes, heard it with my own two ears, and tried it with my own two hands… I wouldn’t believe that all this is true either. As they say, the one that has achieved a higher level is the one in the lead. In the Dao of inscription, I sincerely admire that little fellow.”
The old man sighed. “Disregarding everything else but the art of inscription… He is sufficient to be my teacher!”
Feng Wu Dao was moved once again.
Elder Kong actually held Duan Ling Tian in such high esteem?
