Chapter 433: Slow, Too Slow!
Translator: KurazyTolanzuraytor Editor: Jay
No one was clearer of Elder Kong’s ability.
Elder Kong’s strength might not be considered to be second to none in Darkhan Dynasty, but in terms of the art of inscriptions, if Elder Kong admitted to be number two in Darkhan Dynasty, then no one would dare admit to be number one…
Even if it was the few great dynasties that surrounded the Darkhan Dynasty, Inscription Masters that were able to compare with Elder Kong could be counted on one’s fingers.
There was practically no Inscription Master that surpassed Elder Kong in the art of inscriptions!
Elder Kong actually said that a young man around the age of 22 was sufficient to be his teacher?
Instantly, Feng Wu Dao’s chest rose and fell like a bellow, and it was difficult to calm down even after a long time.
Earlier on during the Groom Search Competition that day, he was already shocked when Elder Kong said Duan Ling Tian’s Spiritual Force was already at the breakthrough point between the Nascent Soul Stage and Void Prying Stage.
Now, when he found out that Duan Ling Tian’s attainments in the art of inscriptions, he was shocked to the point he was stunned.
“Duan Ling Tian… He’s worthy of being the destined man that great grandmother divined for Wu… The son-in-law of I, Feng Wu Dao, is extraordinary, as expected! HAHAHAHA!” After his shock, Feng Wu Dao was wildly excited in his heart and a brilliant smile appeared on his face.
At this moment, he seemed to have completely forgotten that Duan Ling Tian still hadn’t agreed to be his son-in-law.
Deep in the night, the sky was as black as pitch.
Duan Ling Tian lay on the soft bed and thought of the events that occurred after he arrived at Phoenix Nest City.
The talk of Feng Tian Wu’s destiny caused him to have a strange feeling in his heart.
It was as if after he’d arrived at Phoenix Nest City, he’d ascended the Groom Search Competition’s arena for the sake of the Soul Transformation Fruit, and even defeated Feng Tian Wu… All this seemed as if it was pushed forward by a large shapeless hand, pushing him step by step into the vortex of destiny.
This feeling causing him to feel extremely uncomfortable.
“Destiny? What f**king destiny!? I, Duan Ling Tian, refuse to belief in this heresy! The destiny of I, Duan Ling Tian, is controlled by me, not by the heavens!” In next to no time, Duan Ling Tian tossed away this absurd thought, and a strand of cold light flashed within the darkness in his eyes.
Unknowingly, he’d thought of Feng Tian Wu, the kindhearted young woman that was warm like fire.
“Fire Spirit Body… I hope I really am able to help her. Otherwise, such an extraordinary young woman like her dying halfway through her life is truly a pity.” Duan Ling Tian sighed in his heart.
Gradually, Duan Ling Tian fell asleep.
His injuries hadn’t completely recovered yet, so this sleep went all the way until noon the next day before he woke up.
After he awoke, he felt his mind was refreshed!
Not long after, just after Duan Ling Tian had worn his clothes, Feng Tian Wu brought some servants along to place the food on the table. “Big Brother Duan, you’re awake.”
Duan Ling Tian nodded then sat before the table, intending to eat.
“Squeak squeak~” The little gold mouse’s speed was the swiftest, she seize two pieces of meat slices and started taking big bites, eating with great relish.
“Big Brother Duan, I never imagined that your attainments in the art of inscriptions were so advanced… Even Grandpa Kong was ashamed of his inferiority. To think that Father and I even spoke of asking Grandpa Kong to guide you yesterday, yet in the end it became you who was guiding Grandpa Kong.” Feng Tian Wu’s paid of beautiful eyes stared fixedly at Duan Ling Tian as if she wanted to know exactly how many secrets were hidden in Duan Ling Tian.
Now, she was finally able to understand the meaning of what Duan Ling Tian said yesterday.
For a moment, she was filled with adoration towards Duan Ling Tian.
Duan Ling Tian smiled lightly but didn’t say anything and started to eat by himself.
“Big Brother Duan, why do you have such advanced understanding of the art of inscriptions?” Feng Tian Wu blinked her beautiful eyes that were like autumn water, her voice was gentle and filled with curiosity.
“Tian Wu, it’s your Father and Elder Kong that asked you to come ask me, right?” Duan Ling Tian glanced deeply at Feng Tian Wu, and she was unable to stand up to it and nodded with a slightly embarrassed expression. “Actually, I’m slightly curious myself as well… If it’s inconvenient for Big Brother Duan to speak about, then take it as I never asked.”
“It isn’t inconvenient.” Duan Ling Tian shook his head. “My art of inscription was taught to me by my master…”
“Big Brother Duan’s master?” Feng Tian Wu exclaimed in a low voice. “I never imagined that there’s actually such a formidable great Inscription Master hidden within the territory ruled by the Darkhan Dynasty! In the past, I thought that there wouldn’t be an Inscription Master stronger than Grandpa Kong within the Darkhan Dynasty and the various Empires and Imperial Kingdoms under its rule… Looks like I was looking at the sky from the bottom of a well.”
“No…” Duan Ling Tian shook his head once again. “You aren’t wrong… If it’s only the surroundings of the Darkhan Dynasty, then Elder Kong’s attainments in the Dao of inscription can indeed be considered as at the top.”
“Hmm?” Feng Tina Wu was slightly puzzled.
“My Master isn’t someone from the Darkhan Dynasty… I heard him say that he seems to be from the ‘Foreign Lands’!” Duan Ling Tian said slowly.
Feng Tian Wu’s beautiful face was covered in an expression of disbelief. “Big Brother Duan, your Master is actually a great Inscription Master from the Foreign Lands?”
Duan Ling Tian lightly smiled as he nodded. “Yes.”
“No wonder Big Brother Duan’s attainments in the Dao of inscriptions is so advanced. So it turns out that your Master is from the mysterious ‘Foreign Lands’.” Feng Tian Wu sighed with emotion.
Foreign Lands, a mere two words, yet it was sufficient to strike terror in one’s heart and cause deep admiration.
Experts were numerous like the clouds in the Foreign Lands, and erudite people were innumerable.
Amongst them included various great Inscription Masters, high grade Alchemists, and high grade Weapons Craftsmen…
“Big Brother Duan, I’ll be going first, recover well.” Feng Tian Wu bid her farewells to Duan Ling Tian before leaving hastily.
Duan Ling Tian nodded.
Duan Ling Tian knew clearly in his heart that this girl was surely anxious to return and report to Feng Wu Dao and Elder Kong about the matter regarding his Master.
City Governor’s Estate, the independent large courtyard that the City Governor resided in.
“What?!” The red clothed middle aged man and the grey clothed old man instantly left their seats and stared blankly at the young woman in fiery red clothes before them.
“Wu, is what you said true?” The red clothed middle aged man was exactly the Phoenix Nest City’s Governor, Feng Wu Dao, and he revealed a shocked expression as if his daughter had just spoken of an extraordinary thing.
“Young Miss, he really said that his Master is from the ‘Foreign Lands’?” The grey clothed old man was visibly moved as he asked.
“Father, Grandpa Kong, Big Brother Duan told me all of this himself… If you don’t believe it, then feel free to ask for yourselves.” The red clothed young girl, Feng Tian Wu, said slightly helplessly.
“No wonder, no wonder… No wonder a little over a 20 year old young man like him is able to possess such advanced attainments in the Dao of inscriptions. So it turned out that he has a great teacher behind him.” The old man came to a sudden understanding, and the bewilderment in his heart was completely solved.
“Now, I believe even more that he’d the man in Wu’s destiny… I, Feng Wu Dao, want this son-in-law for sure!” Feng Wu Dao’s eyes squinted and he started laughing.
This caused Feng Tian Wu to flush in embarrassment. “Father, what nonsense are you talking?”
“What? Wu, could it be that you don’t like him? I heard that you personally instructed the kitchen to make good food to send to him for these past two days…” Feng Wu Dao looked at Feng Tian Wu, and his eyes contained a slightly dubious meaning.
“Father!” Feng Tian Wu lightly stomped her beautiful legs, and she was angry to the point she turned away and walked off without even looking back.
For a time, Feng Wu Dao and the old man by his side couldn’t refrain from laughing.
“Soulcleanse Pool, three months from now…” Within the spacious room, Duan Ling Tian sat cross-legged on the floor, and he closed his eyes to start cultivating after consuming a Nascent Nurturing Pill.
Nine Dragons War Sovereign Technique, Wind Wyrm Form!
Presently, Duan Ling Tian’s cultivation had already stepped into the fifth level of the Nascent Soul Stage, and what he had to do now was charge towards a higher level to possess a stronger strength…
The two year agreement of his with Zither Young Master was in another nine months!
At that time, he would rush back to the Seven Star Sword Sect and battle the Zither Young Master.
Zither Young Master, Zi Shang, was already a martial artist at the seventh level of the Nascent Soul Stage over one year ago. As one of the five great young masters that were the most outstanding within the younger generation of the Azure Forest Imperial Kingdom, his current cultivation might already have stepped into the eighth level of the Nascent Soul Stage!
When the two year period was over, the Zither Young Master might have already become a ninth level Nascent Soul Stage martial artist.
Ninth level Nascent Soul Stage…
Duan Ling Tian felt quite a strong pressure.
For almost three months of time, besides cultivating, Duan Ling Tian would occasionally bring along the little gold mouse and leave the City Governor’s Estate with Feng Tian Wu, and they would stroll around all over Phoenix Nest City to relax…
Besides that, during this period of time, he was disturbed by Elder Kong on many occasions, and every time Elder Kong looked for him, it would be to ask him questions related to inscriptions.
Whereas Duan Ling Tian would answer and explain them one by one to Elder Kong.
To him who’d fused with the memories of the Rebirth Martial Emperor, Elder Kong’s questions were only basic questions.
The admiration Elder Kong felt towards Duan Ling Tian had practically reached the limit.
Dawn, Duan Ling Tian awoke from his cultivation, and he shook his head as he sighed. “I’m still quite far away…”
Although his cultivation was close to the sixth level of Nascent Soul Stage, it would at least take another one to two months for him to break through.
“Slow, too slow!” Duan Ling Tian frowned and his expression was gloomy.
“The two year agreement between me and Zither Young Master is in another half a year… At that time, with the Zither Young Master’s natural talent, his cultivation would at least be at the ninth level of the Nascent Soul Stage.” At this moment, Duan Ling Tian couldn’t help but be slightly impatient in his heart.
After all, the battle between him and Zither Young Master half a year from now was related to his honor as a man, and he had to be cautious.
“Unless I’m able to break through to the seventh level of the Nascent Soul Stage in half a year, otherwise, it will be difficult for me to have a chance at winning!” Duan Ling Tian took a deep breath and was filled with yearning for the seven level of the Nascent Soul Stage.
Once he broke through to the seventh level of the Nascent Soul Stage, then not only would his strength improve greatly, he would also be able to smoothly condense a grade five Weapon Flame at the same time, and become a grade five weapons craftsman!
At that time, he would be able to refine a grade five spirit weapon!
Although the Zither Young Master, Zi Shang, similarly possessed a grade five spirit weapon, in terms of quality, it would be far inferior to the grade five spirit weapon Duan Ling Tian refined himself…
Coupled with his Elementary Wind Force and Quake Energy.
“So long as Zither Young Master hasn’t comprehended a Force Seed, or his comprehension of a Force Seed doesn’t surpass Saber Young Master… Then it would be nothing for me to defeat him as long as I break through to the seventh level of the Nascent Soul Stage!” A bright light shot out from Duan Ling Tian’s eyes.
But, Duan Ling Tian knew clearly that even if he was able to break through to the sixth level of the Nascent Soul Stage within two months, it was very unlikely for him to break through to the seventh level of the Nascent Soul Stage before the date of the two year agreement arrived!
After all, the sixth level of the Nascent Soul Stage to the seventh level of the Nascent Soul Stage was a divide that was extremely difficult to leap over.
