“Squeak squeak~” The little gold mouse hurriedly nodded, then leaped to the side of the hall and pointer towards a broken stone tablet and said via voice transmission. “Big Brother Ling Tian, the aura is inside this… However, that aura vanished not long after we arrived, as if it concealed itself.”
“So strange?” Duan Ling Tian couldn’t help but be stunned when he heard the little gold mouse’s voice transmission, then he took large strides to arrive before the broken stone tablet.
“This stone tablet…” Duan Ling Tian squatted down, wanting to lift up the stone tablet, yet he noticed that the little tablet seemed to be connected to the entire hall.
However, Duan Ling Tian’s extended Spiritual Force instead told him that this broken stone tablet was separate from the hall.
Duan Ling Tian took a deep breath, the muscles on his entire body bulged up as he grabbed onto the stone tablet with both his hands.
Subsequently, the entire strength in his body exploded out!
But, even then, his strength of 1,011 ancient mammoths was still unable to move the stone tablet in the slightest.
“Exactly how heavy is this stone tablet?” Duan Ling Tian was astounded, then he extended his hand out to knock the stone tablet as he swiftly searched through the memories of the Rebirth Martial Emperor, yet in the end, he was unable to find any clues relating to the materials the stone tablet was made of.
In other words, even if the Rebirth Martial Emperor was still alive, he would also be unable to recognize the materials this stone tablet was made from.
According to the memories of the Rebirth Martial Emperor, even the heaviest stone on Cloud Continent was far lighter than this broken stone tablet before him.
This stone tablet was only a small piece, yet it was already heavy to the extent that Duan Ling Tian wasn’t able to move it in the slightest.
“Little Gold, see if you can move this stone tablet.” Duan Ling Tian looked at the nearby little gold mouse.
As far as he was concerned, Little Gold was a third level Void Prying Stage demon beast, and Little Gold strength was stronger than him as well.
The little gold mouse swiftly ran over when she heard this, but, even when the little gold mouse fully exploded forth with her strength of 4.000 ancient mammoth, she was still similarly unable to move the stone tablet in the slightest.
“Exactly what stone tablet is this?” Duan Ling Tian gasped when he saw this scene.
After all, the strength of one ancient mammoth was comparably to the strength of 10,000 pounds.
The strength of 4,000 ancient mammoths was comparably to the strength of 40 million pounds!
What sort of notion was 40 million pounds?
If converted to the ton unit of weight measurement in his previous life, it was 20,000 tons…
“The weight of this stone tablet exceeds 20,000 tons?” Duan Ling Tian was completely dumbstruck as he gazed at the stone tablet before him.
“Squeak squeak~” Right at this moment, the little gold mouse’s enraged cry sounded out by Duan Ling Tian’s ears.
Subsequently, he saw a sword light flash over to fiercely strike the stone tablet.
It was precisely the little gold mouse utilizing her entire strength, her grade five spirit weapon, and her Half-step Advanced Lightning Force to attack the stone tablet
The sword strike that contained the strength of 6,500 ancient mammoths struck onto the stone tablet, and the terrifying force swept up all the dust on the floor of the hall.
“Squeak squeak~~” The little gold mouse’s helpless cry sounded out as the dust settled down.
Duan Ling Tian looked towards the stone tablet and his eyes sprung open like saucers as he was inexplicably shocked. “This… Exactly what materials is this stone tablet made of? A stroke strike that contained the strength of 6,500 ancient mammoths had struck it, yet it didn’t leave behind a single mark!”
After all, the little gold mouse’s sword strike had left behind a conspicuous white mark even on the scale armor of the Crimson Armadillo that possessed heaven defying hardness.
But now, the little gold mouse had exerted her full strength yet didn’t leave behind any marks on the stone tablet.
“Big Brother Ling Tian, this stone platform is too hard… I can’t do anything.” The little gold mouse’s small head drooped, then she dejectedly stood to the side after putting away her grade five spirit sword.
“I saw.” Duan Ling Tian laughed bitterly, then extended his hand to pat the stone tablet, and he didn’t notice anything wrong with it.
The entire stone tablet was icy cold and extremely strange words were engraved on it, and Duan Ling Tian didn’t recognize a single word. “What words are these? It seems to not be the words used commonly on Cloud Continent…”
Under his helplessness, Duan Ling Tian could only search through the memories of the Rebirth Martial Emperor.
However, according to the memories of the Rebirth Martial Emperor, even the Rebirth Martial Emperor who’d experienced two lifetimes had never seen this type of words.
“Even the Rebirth Martial Emperor hasn’t seen these words before…” Duan Ling Tian couldn’t help but be amazed, and he was able to realize how unordinary this stone tablet was.
“Based on the gap on this stone tablet, it should be lacking less than half…” Duan Ling Tian placed his hand on the stone tablet, and his hand felt cold as if he was touching an ice cube.
Finally, Duan Ling Tian couldn’t bear it any longer, and his Spiritual Force swept out to envelop this broken stone tablet as he wanted he wanted to see if he could use his Spiritual Force to sense the profundities of this stone tablet…
Right at the instant Duan Ling Tian’s Spiritual Force touched the stone tablet.
An unexpected event suddenly occurred!
Duan Ling Tian felt a gloomy wind assault him, then his Spiritual Force shook as a Spiritual Force that caused him to feel suffocated surged out from the stone tablet to follow along his Spiritual Force and swept towards his soul.
A trace of despair emerged in Duan Ling Tian’s heart without rhyme nor reason.
The strength of this Spiritual Force completely exceeded the scope of his understanding…
Even the Spiritual Force of Elder Kong from Phoenix Nest City wasn’t worth mentioning when compared with this Spiritual Force, and it was like the difference between heaven and earth.
“Even the Rebirth Martial Emperor at his prime might not have a Spiritual Force that’s this strong!” Instantly, many thoughts flashed past Duan Ling Tian’s mind.
“Who exactly are you?” Duan Ling Tian’s Spiritual Force shook as he communicated with the strong Spiritual Force that had touched his Spiritual Force.
Accurately speaking, the thing that swept towards his soul via his Spiritual Force ought to be an extremely formidable ‘soul’…
Duan Ling Tian was extremely familiar of the feeling he had now.
All those years ago, when he’d just come to this world from earth and had possessed Duan Ling Tian’s body, the soul of the Rebirth Martial Emperor that was concealed deep within Duan Ling Tian’s soul had once given him a similar feeling.
However, at this instant, he had a clear intuition.
Even the soul of the Rebirth Martial Emperor at that time seemed to be far inferior to the strength of this soul that had swept towards him.
“The Rebirth Martial Emperor was an existence that stood at the peak of Cloud Continent… His soul had experienced two lifetimes and was even tempered to an extremely terrifying degree! During his second lifetime, it was even to the extent that not a single Martial Emperor Stage expert was able to receive a single Spiritual Force Attack from the Rebirth Martial Emperor! The strength of the Rebirth Martial Emperor’s soul is imaginable from this.”
“Could it be that I’m mistaken?” This thought had only just emerged in Duan Ling Tian’s heart when he felt the extremely strong soul had already entered his mind.
At the same time, a gloomy, loud, and clear voice entered into Duan Ling Tian’s soul. “Kid! You can only blame yourself for being unfortunate! If it wasn’t for your soul touching the Devilseal Tablet, it would be impossible for my primary soul to leave the Devilseal Tablet… I really have to thank you properly.”
“Now, I’ve escaped the Devilseal Tablet, so long as I destroy your soul and occupy your body… I’ll be able to go look for my secondary soul. At that time, when my primary soul returns to the side of my secondary soul, I’ll be able to annihilate that stupid fellow! HAHAHAHA!” Along with this arrogant and wanton voice sounding out, Duan Ling Tian’s soul shook intensely.
At the same time, Duan Ling Tian’s extended Spiritual Force completely dispersed along with the trembling of his soul.
“No!!” Duan Ling Tian’s face went ghastly pale as he shouted out miserably.
Once his soul of destroyed, it would also mean that he would completely vanish from the world.
Even if his body was still alive, it was only a shell and wasn’t him any longer.
But everything that was happening now wasn’t something that Duan Ling Tian was able to control.
In Duan Ling Tian’s senses, the strong soul that swept towards his soul was simply even stronger that the soul of the Rebirth Martial Emperor that day.
Finally, the extremely strong soul collided with Duan Ling Tian’s soul.
Instantly, Duan Ling Tian’s body shook and he felt dizzy.
In the next moment, Duan Ling Tian who thought his consciousness would be destroyed noticed to his astonishment that his shaking soul was ceaselessly stabilizing and recovering…
In the end, the unwell feeling completely vanished.
“Eh?” Meanwhile, Duan Ling Tian noticed that the strong soul from before seemed to have suddenly vanished without a trace.
Raging thunder yet a tiny shower.
“Could it be…?” To Duan Ling Tian this scene was similarly so familiar.
“Could it be that he suffered a similar fate as the Rebirth Martial Emperor at that time… Suffering some sort of restraint from the law of the world because of my soul doesn’t belong to this word, so he didn’t succeed? Not only did he not succeed, he instead lost his own soul in the process?” Duan Ling Tian had a strange expression when he thought up to this point.
“What an unlucky ‘ghost’!” Duan Ling Tian heaved a sigh of relief and revealed a slightly complacent smile. “So what if your soul is strong? Trying to destroy my soul is simply like seeking death! Looks like the Rebirth Martial Emperor has a companion.”
“Big Brother Ling Tian, you… Your current appearance is extremely annoying.” Right at this moment, the little gold mouse looked at him in all seriousness as she sent him a voice transmission.
The smile on Duan Ling Tian’s face froze when he heard this, and he was slightly embarrassed.
At the same time, at an extremely distant place, in an extremely luxurious and magnificent palace that was on a ‘floating island’ that hung in midair.
“HAHAHAHA! Hei Ming, I truly never expected that you’re so unfortunate, even your primary soul was destroyed by someone.” A wave of unrestrained loud laughter of freedom sounded out from within the palace.
Subsequently, the airflow in the sky scattered about as a tall figure abruptly appeared in the sky above the magnificent palace.
This was a young man.
The young man wore azure clothes, his face exceedingly handsome with a perfectly contoured outline, and he possessed a graceful bearing.
His pair of sword shaped eyebrows erect and gave off a dignified aura.
His pair of calm eyes seemed to have azure colored strong winds leaping about within, and his sharp gaze seemed to be able to penetrate everything.
Presently, the young man’s face was filled with extreme joy.
As if he hadn’t been so happy in a long time.
Suddenly, the distant air roiled.
Two figures that were exceedingly swift appeared before the young man at almost the exact same time.
This was two old men.
One wearing blue clothes, the other wearing red clothed.
“Mansion Lord.” The two old men looked at the young man and were extremely humble.
“I’ll be leaving for a period of time… During this period of time, both of you will be fully in charge of all the affairs of the Azure Cloud Mansion.” The young man glanced lightly at the two old men, then shot out a command token with a raise of his hand.
On the command token was azure colored strong winds that twined together, seeming like an azure dragon.
