Chapter 437: Spiritual Force Attack
Translator: KurazyTolanzuraytor Editor: Jay
This was a completely sealed abode, and only the underwater passageway lead to and from this place.
The furnishing within the abode were extremely simple, only a stone table, stone stool, and stone bed.
“Hu~” Duan Ling Tian arrived before the stone table and blew a mouthful of air, and dust suffused the air. “Looks like it has already been a long time since someone came here.” When he recalled the objective he came here with, Duan Ling Tian’s Spiritual Force extended out.
In the end, he sensed a strand of dense spirit energy behind the stone bed.
“What exactly is it?” Under the urging of his curiosity, Duan Ling Tian walked forward to take a look.
After passing the stone bed, Duan Ling Tian saw a gap in the ground, and within the gap was a dark green plant growing tenaciously there. On the plant, a translucent and glittering dark green spirit fruit hung there.
“This is…” Duan Ling Tian’s pupils constricted.
His guess was really correct.
The spirit energy within the Soulcleanse Pool was indeed similar to the encounter of the Rebirth Martial Emperor all those years ago, it was also emitted from a spirit fruit and fused into the water.
Presently, when Duan Ling Tian approached the spirit fruit, he noticed his soul shook.
In the next moment, Duan Ling Tian felt his mind go blank, and at this instant, it seemed as if something had split open within his soul.
“My Spiritual Force has changed!” Right at this moment, Duan Ling Tian noticed to his delight that his Spiritual Force that had fallen into a bottleneck had actually broke through the shackles in one go, and smoothly broke through to the Void Prying Stage!
He’d finally broken through!
“It’s all thanks to this.” Duan Ling Tian’s burning gaze converged onto the spirit fruit, and at the same time, he started swiftly searching the memories of the Rebirth Martial Emperor…
He was unable to recognize what spirit fruit this was.
Finally, within the lifetime worth of memories of the Rebirth Martial Emperor, Duan Ling Tian obtained an answer.
“Nether Soul Fruit!” Duan Ling Tian’s heartbeat abruptly quickened.
The Nether Soul Fruit was similar to the Soul Transformation Fruit, it was a type of spirit fruit that could improve the soul and improve the level of Spiritual Force.
In terms of medicinal strength, it far surpassed the Soul Transformation Fruit!
“I really never imagined that my luck is so good… Even though I didn’t acquire the Soul Transformation Fruit, I acquired an even better Nether Soul Fruit.” Duan Ling Tian’s breathing became hurried.
Subsequently, Duan Ling Tian started to size up the Nether Soul Fruit seriously…
In next to no time, he noticed a problem.
“This Nether Soul Fruit seems to have not ripened yet.” Duan Ling Tian was stunned, and as he looked at the wisp of green on the surface of the Nether Soul Fruit, a slight bitter smile unconsciously appeared on the corners of his mouth.
“However, it ought to be soon… Just this little bit a greenness. This Nether Soul Fruit will completely ripen in three days at most.” Duan Ling Tian’s gaze abruptly lit up and he was slightly excited in his heart.
“Three days… I won’t go out first.” Duan Ling Tian said to himself.
As far as he was concerned, three days would pass in the blink of an eye.
Feng Wu Dao’s group of three and the little gold mouse knew of Duan Ling Tian’s strength, and knew that there surely wouldn’t be any danger to him after entering the Soulcleanse Pool.
As for the inscription formation, he could use his Spiritual Force to open it.
With a raise of his hand, Duan Ling Tian swept off the dust on the stone bed, then he sat cross-legged atop it and started cultivating.
Nine Dragons War Sovereign Technique, Wind Wyrm Form!
Duan Ling Tian completely immersed his heart and soul in cultivation, and he quickly entered into a state of cultivating.
Duan Ling Tian noticed that after his soul transformed, his cultivating speed seemed to have improved slightly compared to before.
“Looks like even natural talent that is at the limit still needs to rely on a formidable soul to tap into it, to a certain extent.” Duan Ling Tian gradually calmed his heart down and continued cultivating.
A day’s time quickly passed.
Within the spacious gorge, behind the ball of cloud and mist that had split open, figures flew out one by one and they were all the young geniuses of the various cities that had entered the Soulcleanse Pool.
In next to no time, the 29 people came out successively.
“Where’s Big Brother Duan?” Feng Tian Wu’s beautiful face beneath the veil went slightly pale, and her pretty eyes that were like autumn water contained slight worry mixed within.
“Don’t worry Young Miss. With Brother Duan’s ability, he will absolutely be fine.” The grey clothed old man that stood at the side shook his head and smiled, and his words were filled with confidence to Duan Ling Tian.
“City Governor Feng, then we’ll be taking our leave!” The 29 City Governors brought along the young geniuses by their sides and successively bid their farewells to Feng Wu Dao.
Feng Wu Dao nodded indifferently, his gaze never leaving the ball of cloud and mist that had split apart, the entrance to the Soulcleanse Pool. He seemed to be waiting for something and entirely didn’t look at the 29 City Governors in the eye.
The 29 City Governors didn’t dare be displeased, and they summoned their respectively flying demon beasts before flying off.
For a time, only Feng Wu Dao’s group of three and the little gold mouse remained within the spacious gorge.
“Why hasn’t Brother Duan come out yet? The inscription formation atop the Soulcleanse Pool is about to close right now.” The old man looked at the cloud and mist that started to converge together and he frowned.
“Squeak squeak~” Right at this moment, the little gold mouse that had stayed on Feng Tian Wu’s hand all the time cried out, then she transformed into a gold light that shot into the wind and clouds that hadn’t fully closed, entering the Soulcleanse Pool.
“Little Gold!” Feng Tian Wu’s face went pale, and before Feng Wu Dao and the old man could even react, her figure had flashed out, seeming to transform into a ball of flame that fused into the clouds and mist.
Feng Wu Dao and the old man went pale, and they didn’t dare hesitate as they both flashed out to follow her.
Meanwhile, the clouds and mist converged together and the entrance to the Soulcleanse Pool had completely closed, and it would only open again three years from now.
“Where’s Little Gold? Little Gold, Little Gold…” Feng Tian Wu wasn’t unfamiliar with the Soulcleanse Pool as she’d come here three years ago. However, now when she entered the bank of the lake outside the Soulcleanse Pool, her beautiful face concealed beneath the veil was filled with a worried expression.
“Little Gold, Little Gold!” Feng Tian Wu noticed that after the Little Gold Mouse entered, she actually went missing.
Feng Tian Wu’s gaze descended onto the Soulcleanse Pool. “Could it be that Little Gold has entered the Soulcleanse Pool?”
“I promised Big Brother Duan that I would take good care of Little Gold…” Suddenly, seeming to have recalled something, Feng Tian Wu’s beautiful eyes squinted as she leaped into the Soulcleanse Pool.
Meanwhile, Feng Wu Dao and the old man had entered as well, they just happened to see this scene, and they looked at each other and smiled bitterly.
However, they weren’t worried as the Soulcleanse Pool was just big and there wouldn’t be any danger.
Especially when the old man’s formidable Spiritual Force extended out, he was easily capable of sensing Feng Tian Wu’s location and confirming Feng Tian Wu’s safety.
Feng Wu Dao sized up the dusky clouds and mist in the surroundings of the Soulcleanse Pool, and he lightly frowned as he asked. “Elder Kong, do you have a way to go out?”
“No, I don’t have the ability to break through this inscription formation.” Elder Kong had a serious expression, an inscription formation was an existence that he hadn’t encountered yet. “This inscription formation can’t be said to be difficult or easy… But it’s the outcome of a Void Transformation Stage expert after all, and it’s far from something I’m able to see through. Perhaps Brother Duan has a way.”
“Is your Spiritual Force able to find Duan Ling Tian’s location?” Feng Wu Dao asked.
“No, my Spiritual Force can only touch the upper half of the Soulcleanse Pool… There’s no trace of Brother Duan or the little gold mouse. The Young Miss on the other hand is about to leave the scope of my Spiritual Force, let’s go down and take a look.” As soon as he finished speaking, the old man flew out and entered the Soulcleanse Pool.
Within the abode.
Duan Ling Tian quietly cultivated, and when he felt the time was about right, he opened his eyes.
His face emitted a happy expression, and raised his hand intending to pluck the Nether Soul Fruit.
However, when his gaze glanced over, it caused Duan Ling Tian’s face to go gloomy.
He saw that the plant was still there, yet the Nether Soul Fruit atop it had gone missing. “Where’s the Nether Soul Fruit? Who plucked the Nether Soul Fruit?”
Duan Ling Tian’s expression was extremely unsightly, his gaze swiftly and fiercely swept pass as he searched within the abode.
He could be sure that there was surely someone that seized the Nether Soul Fruit before him.
“Hmm?” In next to no time, Duan Ling Tian noticed the culprit.
At the other side of the stone bed, a fluffy gold colored little mouse lay there in deep sleep.
It could be seen that on the corners of the little gold mouse’s mouth was a wisp of dark green liquid held there, and traces of profound spirit energy was suffused on the dark green liquid.
“Little Gold, you… You actually ate my Nether Soul Fruit!” At this moment, Duan Ling Tian’s mood was complicated, and was difficult to be expressed with words.
Once he consumed the Nether Soul Fruit, it could allow his soul to advance a great deal of levels, and even become directly below the soul of an ordinary Void Initiation Stage martial artist…
But now, all this had transformed into a dream.
Whereas the culprit was exactly the infant Jade-eyed Heavenly Mouse.
“This little fellow wouldn’t be pretending to sleep, right? Didn’t I ask you to obediently stay by Tian Wu’s side? Why did you come in?” Duan Ling Tian slightly helplessly grabbed up the little gold mouse yet noticed that the little gold mouse had indeed fell into an extremely deep state of slumber.
“Looks like she’s digesting the Nether Soul Fruit.” Duan Ling Tian thought in his heart.
If it was any other demon beast that are the Nether Soul Fruit, Duan Ling Tian would surely kill it without hesitation.
But the demon beast that ate the Nether Soul Fruit was Little Gold instead, and Duan Ling Tian could only endure it.
“Never mind, I’ll just take it as helping you, little fellow.” In next to no time, felt at ease and didn’t think about it any longer.
Presumably, Little Gold had obtained quite a great deal of benefit from consuming the Nether Soul Fruit.
When Little Gold was strong, her assistance to him would be greater.
Good moved in a cycle.
“It has been three days, I ought to go out.” Duan Ling Tian brought along the little gold mouse as he dived down the underwater passageway and left the abode.
“This Little Gold was actually able to find the underwater passageway, she really has ability… As expected of the descendant of a Jade-eyed Heavenly Mouse.” Duan Ling Tian couldn’t help but sigh emotionally in his heart as he swam within the underwater passageway.
“According to the memories of Rebirth Martial Emperor, besides their brute force, the Jade-eyed Heavenly Mouse was also skilled in soul attacks, and knew some mysterious soul skills… Human martial artists could only touch the essence of the soul when the martial artist had become a Martial Emperor, and come into contact with the mysterious soul attacks!
“On Cloud Continent, soul attacks were ordinarily called Spiritual Force Attacks… Many demon beasts with extraordinary natural talent were able to utilize their Spiritual Force to attack before becoming a Demon Emperor, and this included the Jade-eyed Heavenly Mouse!” Duan Ling Tian thought in his heart.
Through the memories of the Rebirth Martial Emperor, he was able to deeply feel how terrifying Spiritual Force Attacks were.
A thought was sufficient to injure or even shatter another’s soul.
What an overbearing ability that was!
