Chapter 441: Four Months Later
Translator: KurazyTolanzuraytor Editor: Jay
The blue clothed young man’s pupils constricted and his face went ghastly pale.
Subsequently, he seized the small booklet from the hands of the green clothed youth. “Self-castration… It actually requires self-castration… The second half of the Muscle Meridian Rebirth Scroll requires self-castration before being able to be cultivated?”
This blue clothed young man was none other than Zhao Lei.
The Zhao Lei that had left the Ancient City of Everlast and rushed back to the Seven Star Sword Sect that day after they’d obtained the Muscle Meridian Rebirth Scroll.
It was exactly because Zhao Lei brought back the Muscle Meridian Rebirth Scroll that he got the chance to cultivate within this palace which was on the location of a Seven Star Sword Sect’s Spirit Point.
He’s already dispersed his cultivation three months ago and cultivated this Muscle Meridian Rebirth Scroll, and his cousin, Zhao Ke, had similarly dispersed his cultivation as well.
Zhao Ke was the only son of the Megrez Peak outer court elder, Zhao Lin.
“Big Brother Lei, could it be that we really have to castrate ourselves?” Zhao Ke asked slightly hesitantly.
Obviously, although Zhao Ke wasn’t old, he knew what self-castration meant.
“Self-castration… Self-castrations… Why would it require self-castration?” Zhao Lei had a savage expression and cold lights shot out from his eyes. “No wonder! I wondering why there was no effect akin to rebirth like cousin uncle said, after I cultivated the first half… So it turns out that it’s because I didn’t castrate myself! In this way, the reason that Duan Ling Tian could complete rebirth was because he’d already castrated himself?”
“Self-castration in exchange for rebirth, in exchange for peerless and monstrous natural talent… But at the same time, it also meant cutting off any chance of descendants!” Zhao Lei closed his eyes and his body lightly trembled.
Presently, the road to become an expert was before his eyes.
It all depended on how he chose.
A slight difference in thought would be like the difference between the heaven and the earth.
Suddenly, Zhao Lei opened his eyes, and his gaze emitted incomparable firmness.
“Little Brother Ke, I’ve decided… I’ll castrate myself! Only after castrating myself would I be able to possess the strength and natural talent like Duan Ling Tian.” Zhao Lei looked at Zhao Ke and said resolutely.
“Big Brother Lei… Do we really have to castrate ourselves?” Zhao Ke’s legs started shivering and he had an expression of fear. “Should we discuss this matter with my Father?”
“That won’t do!” Zhao Lei said resolutely, “We can’t let our fathers know of this… Otherwise, they wouldn’t allow us to do it! After all, once we castrate ourselves, the Zhao Clan will have no descendants.”
Zhao Ke went silent as it was indeed logical.
“Big Brother Lei, I’m afraid…” Zhao Ke’s face became ghastly pale and his voice started trembling.
“What’re you afraid of? Could it be that you don’t want to possess a natural talent like Duan Ling Tian? You don’t want to become outstanding and bring honor for your father?” Zhao Lei looked at Zhao Ke as he asked.
Zhao Ke’s body trembled when he heard this, and a fierce light shot out from his eyes. “I do! I want to kill all those people that opposed my Father… Like that Mizar Peak’s Master, Zheng Fan. If it wasn’t for him stopping my Father that day, my Father would have killed Duan Ling Tian long ago and seized the Muscle Meridian Rebirth Scroll!”
“I know Father hates him! So, I must become strong and kill that Zheng Fan to give vent to my Father’s anger!” As he finished speaking, Zhao Ke’s face flushed red and his eyes flickered with bloodthirsty killing intent.
“Exactly, we want to kill all the people that oppose us and our Fathers… But, if we want to become strong, then the fastest way now is to cultivate the Muscle Meridian Rebirth Scroll! So long as we castrate ourselves, we’ll achieve rebirth and possess a monstrous natural talent that is comparable to Duan Ling Tian.”
Bright lights shot out of Zhao Lei’s eyes. “At that time, the entire Seven Star Sword Sect would be ours… You’ll be the Sect Leader and I’ll be the Guardian Elder!”
“Alright!” Zhao Ke fiercely nodded. “Big Brother Lei, we’ll castrate ourselves for the sake of rebirth!”
Just like this, the only sons of the Seven Star Sword Sect’s outer court elder Zhao Lin and external affairs elder Zhao Yu discussed the important matter of self-castration.
Just for the sake of being able to achieve rebirth as said in the Muscle Meridian Rebirth Scroll…
Duan Ling Tian naturally didn’t know about all this.
Presently, Duan Ling Tian was roaming about at the southern area of Darkstone Empire.
A lone swordsman!
One man, one sword, wandering about all over with an extremely imposing manner!
Whereas the two year agreement with Zither Young Master grew closer and closer.
Four Months Later.
Within a quiet forest, Duan Ling Tian leaned himself on a large tree.
On his shoulder, a cute fluffy little gold mouse stood there as it looked left and right.
“Big Brother Ling Tian, are you sure they will come?” The little gold mouse looked at Duan Ling Tian and blinked her eyes as she spoke via voice transmission.
“Don’t worry Little Gold, they will come.” Duan Ling Tian lightly smiled.
Duan Ling Tian had only just finished speaking when a wave of rapid sounds of horse hooves sounded out in the distance as they approached in a formidable array. Over ten robust bandits seemed to transform in a gust of wind that swept towards Duan Ling Tian and the little gold mouse.
After a short moment, the ten plus bandits stopped their horses and looked at Duan Ling Tian from afar.
“Third Brother, it is this kid? Fifth Brother was killed by him?” One of the four bandits in the lead looked at the people who stared at Duan Ling Tian with a livid expression and asked in slight disbelief.
“Exactly, it’s him!” The latter fiercely nodded and spoke with a voice that contained rage mixed within.
“A little youth around the age of 22 or 23 was able to kill Fifth Brother?” Another bandit frowned and didn’t dare believe his ears.
“Fourth Brother, don’t underestimate him… This kid is a sixth level Nascent Soul Stage martial artist!” The bandit that spoke in rage earlier spoke out once again.
Sixth level Nascent Soul Stage!
Instantly, the other bandits beside him all became gloomy.
Such a young man possessed a cultivation at the sixth level of the Nascent Soul Stage? They could imagine how monstrous this young man’s natural talent was.
“Sixth level Nascent Soul Stage…” The middle aged man amongst the four bandits in the lead that hadn’t spoke up till now, shot his slightly cold gaze at Duan Ling Tian. “Your natural talent isn’t bad. Unfortunately, you’re going to die here today.”
“Want to kill me? That will depend on if you have the ability.” Duan Ling Tian’s body that leaned on the large tree slightly stood up as he shrugged, then said indifferently, “You ought to be their leader right? Eighth level Nascent Soul Stage… Your strength isn’t bad. Come at me yourself.” His words seemed to not take the middle aged man who was the leader of the bandits seriously.
“Kid, if you want to fight my Big Brother, then defeat me first!” Instantly, Origin Energy raged on the legs of the one that spoke earlier, the second in command of the bandits and he left his horse to fly out, seeming to transform into a cannonball that shot fiercely towards Duan Ling Tian.
In the sky above this bandit, 1,000 ancient mammoth silhouettes dashed out in tow with an imposing manner that shot up into the sky like a rainbow.
Seventh level Nascent Soul Stage!
In a short moment, the bandit’s second in command had arrived nearby Duan Ling Tian.
“Die!” The bandit shouted out explosively, and the saber in his hand transformed into a flowing light that carried along a shocking imposing manner as it flashed straight towards Duan Ling Tian, as if it wanted to chop Duan Ling Tian into two.
Instantly, another 280 ancient mammoth silhouettes appeared beside the existing 1,000 ancient mammoth silhouettes!
This saber was obviously a grade seven spirit saber that was able to amplify strength by 28%.
Origin Energy skyrocketed atop the bandit second in command’s saber and it tore through the sky, carrying might that could split mountains.
This slash contained the strength of 1,280 ancient mammoths!
“You’re overrating yourself!” Duan Ling Tian’s gaze was cold and indifferent, and at the same time that he spoke these words indifferently, his hand shook and the Violet Myrtle Flexible Sword appeared out of thin air.
Sword Drawing Arts!
His sword shot out like a bolt of lightning, like a swimming dragon that swept towards the bandits saber slash that flashed towards him.
Instantly, over 1,000 ancient mammoth silhouettes flashed above Duan Ling Tian…
An ear piercing sound of iron weapons collided and the clear sound of a sword piercing through a throat sounded out at almost the exact same time.
In the next moment.
The body of the bandit second in command that approached in full fury shook, and he even didn’t have the time to let out a shrill cry before he and his saber fell down at almost the exact same time, devoid of any signs of life.
“Second Brother!” The expression of the bandit leader became even gloomier and his eyes seemed like they were almost splitting.
“Second Brother!” The bandits that were third in command and fourth in command were ghastly pale, and their eyes sprang wide open, not daring to believe that all this was true.
“Since you’ve become bandits, then you should have expected a day like this would come…” Duan Ling Tian coldly swept the three bandits in the lead and the over 10 bandits that were trembling in fear behind them as he spoke indifferently.
“I and my Fifth Brother didn’t offend you, why did you have to be a busybody and kill my Fifth Brother?” The bandit’s third in command asked in anger.
“A busybody?” It was fine when the third in command of the bandits didn’t mention it, as the moment he did, killing intent that shot into the skied arose instantly on Duan Ling Tian, and his tone was icy and indifferent like ice. “It’s fine that all of you robbed a village, it was for none other than wealth… But what did all of you do? Plundering and pillaging, and not even letting the old, women, and children off… Don’t all of you deserve death?”
“Third Brother, why talk nonsense with him…? Everyone attack together and kill him!” The leader of the bandits shouted out explosively, then spurred his horse out to charge towards Duan Ling Tian.
“Bring it on!” Duan Ling Tian’s gaze abruptly lit up, then he sent a voice transmission to the little gold mouse on his shoulder. “Little Gold, leave him to me… Deal with the others however you like.”
“Squeak squeak~” The little gold mouse seemed as if she was on stimulants when she heard Duan Ling Tian, and she transformed into a gold light that flashed out.
Meanwhile, the bandit leader had arrived near Duan Ling Tian.
The saber in his hand split the sky as it flashed out, carrying along a shocking imposing manner as it descended downwards to envelop towards Duan Ling Tian, and Origin Energy coiled around it, causing it to seem as if it had transformed into a snow white moon.
1,408 ancient mammoth silhouettes descended along with this saber and swept out!
Eighth level Nascent Soul Stage and a grade seven spirit saber.
Duan Ling Tian had no intention of dodging, and the Violet Myrtle Flexible Sword flashed out with the raise of his hand.
Sword Drawing Arts!
An incomparably swift violet sword light flashed by, moving boldly to intercept the saber, and it carried along Origin Energy that vibrated intensely.
Quake Energy at the limit!
Within the Origin Energy, the strange aura of wind was pulsing.
Duan Ling Tian had utilized all of the strength in his entire body, Wind Force, and Quake Energy in this sword strike.
Although when relying on the strength of his sixth level Nascent Soul Stage cultivation, the Violet Myrtle Flexible Sword, and the Wind Force, Duan Ling Tian’s strength was still inferior to the bandit leader by the strength of tens of ancient mammoths…
But, his Quake Energy at the limit was sufficient to make up for this little difference.
