Chapter 494: Tempest Point
Translator: KurazyTolanzuraytor Editor: Jay
At the center of the whirlpool that was formed from the compression of the clouds and mist that covered the sky, a ball of dark clouds was ceaselessly roiling and brewing.
Hiss! Hiss! Hiss! Hiss! Hiss!
Violet colored lightning and thunder endlessly raged within it, seeming like numerous little snakes that danced about, dazzling and resplendent.
However, Duan Ling Tian currently didn’t have the mood to take notice of all this.
Duan Ling Tian’s figure flashed, and he seemed to have transformed into a gust of wind that blew towards the horizon.
Duan Ling Tian stepped on the air and rose up with skilled movements, and there wasn’t the slightest lack of fluency.
If it was an ordinary martial artist that had just broken through to the Void Prying Stage, the martial artist would at least require a period of time to familiarize himself before being able to control the air and fly.
But Duan Ling Tian was different.
Duan Ling Tian had merged with the lifetime worth of memories of the Rebirth Martial Emperor, and he was extremely familiar with the technique to control the air and flying. He was easily able to float in the air and was entirely not like a martial artist that had just broken through to the Void Prying Stage.
“Little Gold is here now as well, and 12 bolts of tribulation lightning will descend from the Six-Nine Heavenly Tribulation! I wonder if I’ll be able to smoothly comprehend Half-step Advanced Lightning Force by relying on the 12 bolts of tribulation lightning…?” Duan Ling Tian looked up into the sky. The violet colored lightning within the dark clouds had brewed to the limit, and the first tribulation lightning might descend at any moment.
Duan Ling Tian’s ambition was extremely great.
He wanted to comprehend Half-step Advanced Lightning Force in one go!
According to the memories of the Rebirth Martial Emperor and the records of the Lightning Wyrm Form, so long as he combined Wind Force to execute Tempest Point to go against the tribulation lightning, he would be able to use this to comprehend Lightning Force.
Based on the calculations of the Rebirth Martial Emperor, he would at most be able to comprehend Elementary Lightning Force.
Presently, the little gold mouse lay on Duan Ling Tian’s shoulder in cultivation. Although she didn’t awaken, because she didn’t leave Duan Ling Tian by 100 meters, the Six-Nine Heavenly Tribulation would replicate an extra bolt of tribulation lightning that targeted the little gold mouse every time a bolt of tribulation lightning descended.
Duan Ling Tian planned to shoulder the six bolts of tribulation lightning that targeted the little gold mouse as well.
Needless to say, Duan Ling Tian’s thought was extremely insane.
Finally, the lightning within the dark clouds in the horizon had accumulated to the limit, and a bolt of lightning that was as thick as an infant’s arm was condensed.
The bolt of lightning descended from the sky, carrying along a shocking might as it struck straight towards Duan Ling Tian’s head.
It was the first tribulation lightning!
In almost an instant, another bolt of tribulation lightning struck down right after the previous, and the target of this bolt of tribulation lightning was instead the little gold mouse that was cultivating on Duan Ling Tian’s shoulder.
“Hmph!” Duan Ling Tian’s gaze was slightly cold and he wasn’t afraid in the slightest as he went to meet the bolt of tribulation lightning head on.
With a raise of his hand, Duan Ling Tian pointed out and his strength fully exploded out.
A milky white beam of Origin Energy completely condensed together before emitting a piercing howl as it shot out, and its target was the bolt of tribulation lightning that had struck down first.
Strands of azure colored energy twined on the surroundings of the beam of Origin Energy, and they were like numerous azure colored little snakes that were swimming about. It was precisely the Half-step Advanced Wind Force that Duan Ling Tian had comprehended.
After he pointed out, Duan Ling Tian didn’t dare dally.
He pointed out again, and a similar beam of Origin Energy pierced towards the other bolt of tribulation lightning.
Two enormous bangs practically sounded out at the exact same instant. The incomplete Tempest Point that Duan Ling Tian executed had easily annihilated the two bolts of tribulation lightning.
Duan Ling Tian heaved a sigh of relief, and he looked at the horizon with a serious expression.
Although he’d easily stopped the first bolt of tribulation lightning, he knew that the truly formidable tribulation lightning was coming later on.
That day, he’d witnessed the little gold mouse overcoming the Six-Nine Heavenly Tribulation with his own two eyes.
In next to no time, the second bolt of tribulation lightning had condensed into form and descended with a bang.
Another bolt that possessed a similar might followed closely behind it.
Two bolts of tribulation lightning again!
One shot straight towards Duan Ling Tian, the other went straight towards the little gold mouse.
However, the little gold mouse was still cultivating now, and only Duan Ling Tian could be relied upon to forcefully shoulder these two bolts of tribulation lightning.
He pointed out another two times, and the milky white beam of light that was twined with Wind Force shot out via the Tempest Point Duan Ling Tian executed and moved to intercept the two bolts of tribulation lightning.
The two bolts of tribulation lightning were annihilated once more.
Meanwhile, Duan Ling Tian felt his vital blood and energy roil. “The strength of two bolts of tribulation lightning is extremely strong, as expected!”
Duan Ling Tian took a deep breath and continued to look up into the sky, awaiting the third bolt of tribulation lightning.
Earlier, Duan Ling Tian obtained a certain amount of gains from successively shouldering four bolts of tribulation lightning.
Every time he executed Tempest Point and pointed towards the tribulation lightning, he was able to clearly feel the changes in the lightning within the tribulation lightning…
Lighting! It was violent, wreaked havoc, and possessed a shocking might.
The third bolt of tribulation lightning came as scheduled.
Behind it, another bolt of tribulation lightning followed.
Duan Ling Tian’s gaze was cold.
Duan Ling Tian pointed out with a raise of his hand, and the beam of light that was twined in Wind Force instantly swept towards the first bolt of tribulation lightning.
The tribulation lightning and beam of Origin Energy exploded at almost the exact same instant, then they transformed into nothingness.
Meanwhile, Duan Ling Tian’s internal organs trembled and he felt his vital energy and blood roil. “The might of the third bolt of tribulation lightning is actually so strong!”
When he saw there was still another bolt of tribulation lightning flashing over from behind, whereas he was temporarily unable to execute a second Tempest Point, Duan Ling Tian choose to avoid.
Duan Ling Tian’s figure moved, he seemed to transform into a gust of wind, and seemed even more like he was racing with that bolt of tribulation lightning.
However, although his speed was swift, the speed of the tribulation lightning was swifter.
But Duan Ling Tian didn’t plan to pull apart the distance between him and the tribulation lightning, because he knew that it wasn’t realistic. The reason he choose to avoid was only for the sake of allowing himself to catch a breath.
After all, after he executed Tempest Point to forcefully withstand the third bolt of tribulation lightning, the Origin Energy in his body had dispersed and it was difficult for it to be converged in a short amount of time, so it was difficult for him to execute Tempest Point once more…
Whereas now, he’d caught his breath.
Duan Ling Tian suddenly turned around and pointed out, a piercing howl deafened the ears and the airflow in the sky moved rhythmically as they flowed apart.
The beam of Origin Energy that contained Half-step Advanced Wind Force shot out, and it fiercely collided with the tribulation lightning.
Another enormous bang sounded out, and at the same time that Duan Ling Tian felt his vital energy and blood roil, this bolt of tribulation lightning that chased after the little gold mouse had finally been withstood.
Right at this moment.
Two thunderclaps sounded out one after the other and descended from the horizon.
The fourth bolt of tribulation lightning descended with a bang.
This time, Duan Ling Tian played the same old trick and successfully stopped the two bolts of tribulation lightning, but even then, he was still lightly injured.
Fortunately, it wasn’t a heavy injury, and after he consumed an injury curing medicinal pill, he recovered in the blink of an eye.
“Lightning…” Duan Ling Tian looked up into the sky, and as the fifth bolt of tribulation lightning appeared, he obtained some comprehension.
Earlier, when he successively withstood numerous bolts of tribulation lightning, and especially when he used Tempest Point to blast them head on, it had allowed Duan Ling Tian to acquire a clear understanding of the characteristics of lightning to a certain extent.
With a command of his thoughts, besides the swift and fierce Wind Force, there was actually a strand of unstable violet energy on the Origin Energy that leaped about on the tip of his finger.
“Lightning Force Seed?” Duan Ling Tian’s gaze abruptly lit up as he knew that he’d already taken the first step.
A Lightning Force Seed was the foundation of Lightning Force.
Comprehending a Lightning Force Seed meant that he would quickly be able to truly comprehend Lightning Force.
“The fifth bolt of tribulation lightning… Come!” Duan Ling Tian looked up into the sky with an expression of anticipation.
He believed that now that he’d comprehended a Lightning Force Seed, so long as he continued to closely come into contact with the tribulation lightning, he would surely be able to comprehend true Lightning Force.
This was something that he was extremely confident about.
Along with two terrifying sounds of lightning strikes, the thick bolts of lightning descended with a bang, and they seemed like two meteorites that fell from the horizon.
Duan Ling Tian stepped up into the sky to greet the first bolt of tribulation lightning and pointed out.
This time, besides the fierce azure colored energy that twined on the beam of Origin Energy that shot out from the tip of Duan Ling Tian’s finger, there was another thread of faint violet colored energy, and it was precisely the Lightning Force Seed.
Duan Ling Tian had a feeling that the Tempest Point he executed now completely couldn’t be compared to the Tempest Point he executed in the past.
The current Tempest Point had both Wind Force and Lightning Force.
Although the latter was only a Lightning Force Seed, it was sufficient to allow the Tempest Point to ascend onto a new stage.
“So long as the Lightning Force Seed is able to transform into true Lightning Force, my Tempest Point will officially step into the Initial Stage!” At that same time that Duan Ling Tian pointed out, he thought in his heart.
Whereas in this instant, the Origin energy beam that Duan Ling Tian shot out, the Tempest Point that possessed initial form, collided with the fifth bolt of tribulation lightning and emitted an enormous bang.
The airflow in the sky flew about as sounds of air exploding rose and fell continuously.
“Pu!” At the instant the Tempest Point collided with the tribulation lightning, the violent energy contained within the tribulation lightning shook Duan Ling Tian’s internal organs to the point he couldn’t refrain from spitting out a mouthful of blood.
Duan Ling Tian was injured quite heavily.
Right when Duan Ling Tian’s body was shaky and on the verge of collapse, the other bolt of lightning that targeted the little gold mouse descended as well.
This bolt of tribulation lightning was replicated on the foundation of the fifth bolt of tribulation lightning of the Six-Nine Heavenly Tribulation, and its might was extremely formidable.
In a short amount of time, not to mention condensing his Origin energy once more, Duan Ling Tian who was injured quite heavily was even slightly unable to catch his breath…
Duan Ling Tian gritted his teeth wanted to execute his movement technique and dodge.
But even with the assistance of the Half-step Advanced Wind Force, his dispersed Origin Energy’s speed was far inferior to the bolt of tribulation lightning.
“Little Gold!” Duan Ling Tian’s expression went grim, he couldn’t take into consideration that the little gold mouse was still cultivating, and he directly sent a voice transmission to pierce into the little gold mouse’s ears.
Practically at the instant he sent the voice transmission, that bolt of tribulation lightning had already descended straight down towards him.
Although the target of the tribulation lightning was only the little gold mouse, the little gold mouse lay on his shoulder, so for a time, he’d become the target of the tribulation lightning as well.
The tribulation lightning was high above in the sky yet its terrifying aura enveloped downwards and practically sealed Duan Ling Tian within it, causing Duan Ling Tian to feel as if he was within a thunderstorm…
A bright light entered his eyes as the aura of lightning carried along the might of nature as it swept over.
At this instant, Duan Ling Tian abruptly closed his eyes, seeming to be lost in comprehension. “This is lightning?”
At this time, Duan Ling Tian even forgot that we was in a dangerous situation, and he still silently savored the aura of lightning, comprehending the characteristics of lightning, comprehending everything of lightning…
The Lightning Force Seed Duan Ling Tian comprehended was slowly strengthening.
When the bolt of tribulation lightning was just about to blast Duan Ling Tian.
“Squeak squeak!!” The little gold mouse suddenly awoke and emitted a sharp cry.
