Chapter 434: The Deterrent Force of The Strong
Translator: KurazyTolanzuraytor Editor: Jay
On the back of an enormous flying beast that fly forward swiftly, Feng Wu Dao looked at Duan Ling Tian with a serious expression as he said, “That Soulcleanse Pool seemed to have been left behind by a formidable Inscription Master… That Inscription Master established a complicated inscription formation that opens every three years there, and only during that day are people able to enter and leave from there. So once you enter, you’re at most able to stay a day before you have to come out. Otherwise, you might not be able to come out again!”
Duan Ling Tian nodded.
He’s heard Feng Wu Dao mention this before.
Inscription formations weren’t unfamiliar to him.
After all, he was an existence that had fused with the lifetime worth of memories of the Rebirth Martial Emperor, and had inherited the Rebirth Martial Emperor’s attainments in the Dao of inscriptions.
An inscription formation was a formation formed from various different types of inscriptions, and it could only be placed when one’s Spiritual Force had attained the Void Interpretation Stage.
Because, only a formidable Spiritual Force was able to control many inscriptions and combine them together to form a boundlessly marvelous formation.
“The Dao of inscriptions is boundlessly profound, especially the inscription formation is even more difficult to fathom.” This was something that Duan Ling Tian knew deeply.
“Big Brother Duan, if you’ve entered the Soulcleanse Pool then you must do your best to absorb the spirit energy within to temper your soul… Only in this way would you be able to temper your soul to the greatest extent within a day and come out before the inscription formation closes.” Feng Tian Wu stood at the side and reminded Duan Ling Tian.
“With Brother Duan’s attainments in the Dao of inscription, he might be able to break through the inscription formation on that Soulcleanse Pool.” The grey clothed old man looked at Duan Ling Tian with a gaze filled with sincere admiration.
“If he’s really able to break through that inscription formation… Then it would mean that he would be able to absorb more of the spirit energy within the Soulcleanse Pool and temper his soul a step further. This is a good thing.” Feng Wu Dao’s gaze lit up, and looked at Duan Ling Tian with slight anticipation.
Duan Ling Tian was silent as he never expected that Feng Wu Dao and Elder Kong looked so highly upon him.
At this moment, Duan Ling Tian’s group were heading towards the Soulcleanse Pool.
The Soulcleanse Pool opened every three years, and many people would enter every time it opened… Because the spirit energy contained within the Soulcleanse Pool was limited, so that amount of people that entered the Soulcleanse Pool was always fixed at 30 people.
Whereas these 30 spots were all controlled in the hands of the 30 cities in the surroundings of the Soulcleanse Pool…
The Phoenix Nest City possessed a spot.
Three years ago, the Phoenix Nest City’s spot belonged to Feng Tian Wu, and this time, it belonged to Duan Ling Tian instead.
Two days later.
The flying beast beneath Duan Ling Tian’s group slowed down its speed.
This flying beast was a Void Prying Stage demon beast, and it break through the clouds and mist as it plunged down.
Duan Ling Tian’s gaze never stopped looking forward from the beginning until the end.
Along with the demon beast descending, a vast gorge appeared before his eyes.
Within the gorge, a ball of thick mist and clouds were condensed together, and they emitted all kinds of mysteriousness that caused it to be difficult for one to see through what exactly was within.
When the demon beast descended at the side of the white mist in the gorge, Duan Ling Tian noticed that there were already many people standing outside the white mist.
Amongst these people were young men and women, middle aged men and women, and old men and women.
Duan Ling Tian’s group had only just descended from the back of the demon beast when an azure clothed middle aged man moved over to greet them, and he looked at Feng Wu Dao as he greeted warmly. “City Governor Feng, long time no see!”
Feng Wu Dao only smiled indifferently.
Duan Ling Tian originally thought that the middle aged man would become furious because of this, but unexpectedly, he seemed to no mind in the slightest, and only nodded before bringing along the young man by his side to stand nearby.
From the beginning until the end, the young man’s gaze never left Feng Tian Wu who wore a veil.
Although Feng Tian Wu was wearing a veil, her extraordinary and refined disposition was difficult to conceal; no matter where she went, she would be the absolute point of focus.
“City Governor Feng!” In next to no time, many people came, and the people in the lead of each group would warmly greet Feng Wu Dao.
Whereas Feng Wu Dao didn’t even bother to look these people in the eye.
Even then, not one of these people dared get angry from embarrassment.
This caused Duan Ling Tian to be unable to help from feeling amazed.
“Tian Wu, these people are all the City Governors of the other 29 cities?” Duan Ling Tian asked Feng Tian Wu via voice transmission.
“Yes.” Feng Tian Wu replied via voice transmission. “Big Brother Duan, you’re surprised of their attitude when facing my Father, right?”
Feng Tian Wu continued saying via voice transmission when she saw Duan Ling Tian nod. “They only found out that the Phoenix Nest City had changed City Governors three years ago when my Father brought me here… Then, they more or less looked down on my Father and even wanted to deprive the Phoenix Nest City of its slot.”
After speaking up to here, Feng Tian Wu stopped for a moment before continuing. “Later on, my Father only slightly revealed his imposing manner and it made those City Governors submit completely and didn’t dare look down on my Father again.”
Duan Ling Tian was able to notice that when Feng Tian Wu mentioned this matter, her beautiful face was slightly red as she was obviously slightly happy.
Duan Ling Tian’s pupils constricted.
After all, with his current Spiritual Force, he was more or less already able to sense the aura of a Void Initiation Stage martial artist…
All those people who’d taken the initiative to greet Feng Wu Dao earlier were practically all existences at the Void Initiation Stage! And a few amongst them had even more extraordinary strength.
But even then, Feng Wu Dao didn’t even bother to look them in the eye, yet they were still polite before Feng Wu Dao.
Duan Ling Tian knew clearly in his heart that this was the reverence towards the strong.
“I wonder when I’ll be able to possess a strength like City Governor Feng, and possess a deterrent force like him.” Duan Ling Tian sighed to himself.
“Haha… City Governor Feng, we haven’t seen each other for three years, yet your demeanor remains the same as before.” Suddenly, a sonorous voice entered into Duan Ling Tian’s ears.
Subsequently, he saw a blue clothed middle aged man descend from the back of an enormous flying beast, and behind the middle aged man, a young man around the age of 26 or 27 followed.
The young man’s appearance was cold, yet when his gaze descended onto Feng Tian Wu, it instead emitted traces of burning desire.
“Looks like even if Tian Wu wears a veil, she’s still extremely well received.” Duan Ling Tian said to himself.
Think about it, although Feng Tian Wu wore a veil when outside, her disposition was natural and was sufficient to attract many lascivious men.
Coupled with the existence of an expert like Feng Wu Dao behind Feng Tian Wu.
In this way, there were surely a great number of people that wanted to bow beneath her skirt.
The blue clothed middle aged man didn’t mind when Feng Wu Dao only glanced indifferently at him, and his gaze descended onto Duan Ling Tian as he asked. “City Governor Feng, I heard you obtained a son-in-law three months ago, could it be this person?”
“What? City Governor Zhong, you have some advice for me?” Feng Wu Dao asked indifferently.
“I don’t dare give you advice, I’m just surprised at the age of City Governor’s son-in-law… It’s truly difficult to imagine that there’s still such a young genius that’s able to defeat your daughter, Miss Tian Wu.” As he finished speaking, the blue clothed middle aged man’s gaze spun around Duan Ling Tian before descending onto Feng Tian Wu.
“Tian Wu, when I found out that City Governor Feng held a Groom Search Competition for you, I wished for nothing more than to grow a pair of wings and fly to Phoenix Nest City… But unfortunately, I still couldn’t make it in time. However, I never imagined that someone actually defeated you and beat me to the punch!” The young man behind the blue clothed middle aged man moved his gaze from Feng Tian Wu to Duan Ling Tian, and there was no lack of intention to provoke within it.
Duan Ling Tian had a carefree expression and remained unmoved.
However, Duan Ling Tian didn’t feel the young man’s current actions were worthy of notice, but it didn’t mean that Feng Tian Wu didn’t as well.
Before outsiders, Feng Tian Wu wasn’t so gentle like she ordinarily was when she was before Duan Ling Tian. She looked to the young man and said coldly and indifferently, “You can call my full name, Feng Tian Wu! Tian Wu isn’t something you can speak of. Besides that, not to mention you don’t satisfy the requirements for my Groom Search Competition that day, even if you did, do you honestly think you can defeat me?”
Feng Tian Wu’s sudden outburst caused Duan Ling Tian to be stunned.
How similar was the scene before him and the scene when he met Feng Tian Wu for the first time that day.
Feng Tian Wu at that time spoke with a tone filled with aggression and even directly attacked him…
Later on, after he defeated Feng Tian Wu, only then did her attitude towards him change.
Especially after Feng Tian Wu firmly believed that he was the man in her destiny, she was even extremely gentle to him, and compared to how she was currently, it was simply like two different people.
The young man was angered to the point his face flushed red when he heard Feng Tian Wu, yet he was afraid of Feng Wu Dao and didn’t dare say anything.
This scene caused Duan Ling Tian to be unable to refrain from laughing silently.
But his laughter entered into the eyes of the young man, and for a time, he seemed to have become the venting point for the young man’s rage.
“Kid, what’re you laughing at?” The young man looked at Duan Ling Tian and spoke in a low voice.
“What has what I’m laughing at got to do with you?” Duan Ling Tian glanced indifferently at the young man. The young man was stirred by what Feng Tian Wu said earlier yet was unable to speak a word after a long time, now he’d instead showed off his strength before Duan Ling Tian. Did he really think that Duan Ling Tian was a soft ‘persimmon?’
“Kid, since you defeated the City Governor’s daughter, I presume your strength is extremely formidable… Then I’ll challenge you to a battle. Do you dare?!” The young man roared, and the Origin Energy on his body raged and surged.
Above him, 800 lifelike ancient mammoth silhouettes condensed into form.
“Hmm?” Duan Ling Tian frowned and his face sank slightly.
This person still wanted to fight him?
“Hmph! If you want to fight Big Brother Duan, then first pass through me.” In the next moment, Duan Ling Tian heard a tender shout and a wave of fragrant wind assault his nose, then a figure that was like flames descended before him, protecting him behind herself.
It was precisely Feng Tian Wu!
“Squeak squeak~” Meanwhile, the little gold mouse that lay asleep on Duan Ling Tian’s shoulder was woken up by the racket, and she rubbed her eyes like a human before looking at the scene before her, then a strand of cold light flashed within her jade green eyes.
“Big Brother Duan, do you want me to kill him!?” The little gold mouse’s voice transmission entered into Duan Ling Tian’s ears and it was filled with ruthlessness.
Duan Ling Tian was stunned. “This little fellow just woke up and is already so ruthless?”
“There’s no need, I can deal with it.” Duan Ling Tian replied via voice transmission.
