Translator: KurazyTolanzuraytor Editor: Jay
It was an extremely enormous Roc that circled up from below the clouds and mist.
The Roc’s wings that were like clouds that covered the sky were spread out, and its imposing manner shot into the sky like a rainbow.
The Roc’s fierce eyes were staring fixedly at the yellow clothed young girl that was high above in the sky.
“Eh.” The yellow clothed young girl noticed the Roc and was slightly surprised. “I never expected that I would be able to meet a demon beast with the bloodline of the Goldwing Grand Roc…”
Goldwing Grand Roc!
The Roc’s eyes squinted when he heard the yellow clothed young girl, and he said via voice transmission. “Little girl, who are you? You’re actually able to notice that I possess the bloodline of the Goldwing Grand Roc.”
“You wouldn’t know even if I tell you.” The yellow clothed young girl’s gaze passed through the clouds and mist to descend onto a sword peak at the side of the seven great sword peaks. “Alright, I’m not going to continue talking with you, I want to go look for Big Brother Ling Tian.” As she spoke, the yellow clothed young girl flashed down.
Big Brother Ling Tian?
The Roc was stunned, and then he asked via voice transmission, “Are you talking about Duan Ling Tian?”
“You know Big Brother Ling Tian?” The young girl stopped moving and looked at the Roc.
“Of course I know him… But, he isn’t here anymore.” When the Roc saw that the person that had arrived was likely to be a friend of Duan Ling Tian’s, the fierceness in his eyes vanished slightly.
“He isn’t here anymore?” The young girl was stunned.
“Hiss hiss~” Right at this moment, two little heads stuck out from beneath the young girl’s sleeve, and they flicked their tongues as their eyes flickered with slight disappointment.
“Do you know where Big Brother Ling Tian has gone?” The young girl asked.
“I only know that he went to the Crimson Sky Kingdom more than two years ago,” said the Roc.
All that he spoke of now was something he heard from Qin Xiang.
As for where Duan Ling Tian had gone now, he knew nothing of it.
“Crimson Sky Kingdom…” The young girl nodded, and then she raised her hand as she flashed out. “Little Black, Little White, we’re going to the Crimson Sky Kingdom to look for Big Brother Ling Tian!”
“Hiss hiss~” The two little pythons instantly became excited and joyful.
The Roc’s pupils constricted as he looked at the yellow clothed young girl vanishing in the blink of an eye, and his feelings surged.
A young girl around the age of 16 actually possesses such a terrifying cultivation?
It caused him to be unable to help from arousing terror in his heart.
“What kind of people does that fellow, Duan Ling Tian, know?” The Roc muttered in his heart.
The Darkhan Dynasty was vast without bounds.
Even if the little gold mouse was flying at full speed now.
After they entered the Darkhan Dynasty, Duan Ling Tian didn’t see a trace of human habitation for a continuous two months of time.
Everything that entered his eye was a boundless desert.
“We wouldn’t have come to the Darkhan Dynasty’s southern desert, right?” Duan Ling Tian sat on the back of the little gold mouse, and as he looked down at the boundless desert, he revealed a bitter smile on his face.
He’d head of the southern desert of the Darkhan Dynasty.
Supposedly, the southern desert was a desolate place.
Not only were signs of human habitation rare in the desert, even wild beasts, fierce beasts, and demon beasts were extremely rare.
It could be said that the southern desert was an undeveloped region.
Originally, even if it was undeveloped, as the territory of the Darkhan Dynasty, it ought to not be so desolate.
However, in this region of the Darkhan Dynasty, there was a thing that caused even Nether Interpretation Stage experts to tremble upon hearing of it, and that was the sandstorm!
A sandstorm came from nature, and its might was boundless.
If it was a strong sandstorm, then even a Void Interpretation Stage expert would be unable to flee death when encountering it.
Although a Void Interpretation Stage expert’s strength wasn’t weak, before the force of nature, it was instead like an ant that wasn’t worth mentioning.
“I wouldn’t have really arrived at the southern desert, right?” Duan Ling Tian laughed bitterly and prayed secretly. “I hope that I won’t encounter the sandstorm that’s specific to the southern desert of the Darkhan Dynasty…”
“Little Gold, continue flying towards this direction and we’ll sooner or later be able to leave this desert,” said Duan Ling Tian to the little gold mouse.
“Squeak squeak~” The little gold mouse replied and continued flying forward swiftly.
Three days later.
Duan Ling Tian originally had his eyes closed as he cultivated, yet suddenly, a wave of unusually fierce winds assaulted his face.
As a martial artist who’d comprehended Half-step Advanced Wind Force, Duan Ling Tian had extremely acute intuition towards wind.
This was something that the little gold mouse was unable to compare to him.
“It wouldn’t be such a coincidence, right?” Duan Ling Tian looked ahead as he muttered.
Not long after, Duan Ling Tian expression completely went grim.
Because he saw the at the end of the desert before him, sand had suddenly surged up to cover the sky, and it continued to flash towards the direction of him and Little Gold.
The sand arrived nearby in a short moment.
Meanwhile, Duan Ling Tian was able to sense a wave of terrifying fierce winds blow over, and it caused the little gold mouse to be unable to move an inch.
Fierce winds blew in the distance, and the sand that covered the sky was accompanied by a terrifying tornado as it swept over.
Everywhere it passed, the ground on the desert cracked open, and the airflow in the sky moved swiftly and emitted a wave of ear piercing sounds of air exploding.
“Little Gold, turn around! Flee!!” Duan Ling Tian recovered from his shock and hurriedly shouted out explosively.
At practically the instant Duan Ling Tian spoke, the little gold mouse had turned around and flashed out towards where they came from.
“Flee! Flee!!” Duan Ling Tian felt the sandstorm behind him approaching, and his expression was unsightly to the extreme.
At this moment, the band that held Duan Ling Tian’s hair behind him had broken, his hair fluttered lightly with the wind as the violet clothes on him were swept by the wind to the point they emitted flapping sounds.
The fierce winds grew closer and closer!
Even if the little gold mouse moved at full speed, it seemed that it would still be difficult for her to flee from the pursuit of the sandstorm.
“I really am a jinx…” When he thought about what he prayed for three days ago, Duan Ling Tian wished for nothing more than to slap himself.
The good didn’t come true, yet the bad did.
Presently, the sandstorm behind him was practically boundless.
With the little gold mouse’s speed, they were utterly had no place to flee.
“The speed of this sandstorm is probably sufficient to compare to the speed of an ordinary fourth level Void Initiation Stage martial artist…”
Perhaps, this level of sandstorm was nothing in the eyes of a Void Interpretation Stage expert, but in the eyes of Duan Ling Tian, it was comparable to a dreadful monster that would swallow him at any moment.
“Little Gold, flee towards the left! Quickly!” Duan Ling Tian turned around, and after he clearly saw the direction of the sandstorm with a focused gaze, he hurriedly urged the little gold mouse.
The little gold mouse didn’t hesitate in the slightest to flash towards the left.
However, the speed of the sandstorm was truly too swift.
The little gold mouse was utterly unable to leave the area the sandstorm swept through before it chased up to them.
“Big Brother Ling Tian, I’ve tried my best.” The immature voice of the little gold mouse was filled with helplessness.
“I never imagined that our luck would be so good that we’d encounter the sandstorm of the Darkhan Dynasty’s southern desert the first time we came to the Darkhan Dynasty!” Duan Ling Tian smiled bitterly.
Right at this moment, the sandstorm came closer and closer, and it was only a mile away from Duan Ling Tian and the little gold mouse.
The little gold mouse flew desperately, yet in the end, they still were swallowed by the sandstorm.
“Little Gold!” Duan Ling Tian felt a fierce wind assault him from behind, and accompanying it was sand that covered the sky that completely covered his field of vision.
Not only that, at this moment, he felt he’d lost control of his entire body, and he was brought along by an extremely strong fierce wind to revolve in midair, and it caused him to feel dizzy.
Duan Ling Tian’s body tensed as the Origin Energy on his body swept up, and the Half-step Advanced Wind Force and Half-step Advanced Lightning Force suffused out after it.
Even though he’d done this, Duan Ling Tian was still unable to withstand the fierce winds that enveloped him.
His Origin Energy and Force was shattered by the fierce winds swept out and hit him.
Gradually, Duan Ling Tian abandoned resistance, and he allowed the sandstorm to bring him flying.
“Little Gold! Little Gold!” Of course, Duan Ling Tian didn’t forget about the little gold mouse.
But no matter how he shouted, his voice was reversed back by the sandstorm and it entered into his ears.
The little gold mouse had completely vanished.
“I hope Little Gold is fine.” Duan Ling Tian said in his heart.
Time slowly passed by.
Duan Ling Tian didn’t know how long had passed as he didn’t have the mood to count the time.
Presently, he was swept flying by the sandstorm, and he could only use his Half-step Advanced Wind Force and fuse it into the fierce winds of the sandstorm to search for a way to conform with the winds.
The outcome of doing this was that it allowed Duan Ling Tian to escape disaster and not be minced by the sandstorm.
“Little Gold’s strength far surpasses mine, and she has even comprehended first level Lightning Concept. She ought to be fine.” As he felt the sandstorm was ceaselessly weakening, Duan Ling Tian thought to himself.
When he thought about this, Duan Ling Tian’s heart stopped worrying, and he wasn’t so irritable as before.
After he stopped worrying, Duan Ling Tian started to observe the sandstorm.
The sandstorm was mainly formed by the sweeping fierce winds that covered the sky, and the sand within it had only arisen along with the wind.
Its essence was the wind.
The fierce winds swept and slapped onto Duan Ling Tian’s tattered clothes, and slapped onto his face.
Duan Ling Tian’s whose eyes were closed and allowed the fierce winds to take him flying had gradually seemed to have fused into the fierce winds.
“Wind…” At this moment, Duan Ling Tian’s comprehension towards Wind Force transformed.
Duan Ling Tian’s mind had completely fused into Wind Force, and he’s completely forgotten about the outside world.
“Wind, is sufficient to sweep through everything! Just like the fierce wind in this sandstorm that’s strong to the extreme. Even a Void Interpretation Stage expert or a Void Transformation Stage expert wouldn’t able to withstand it in the slightest.” Duan Ling Tian silently thought in his heart.
Suddenly, Duan Ling Tian felt his entire body jolt, and his internal organs trembled.
When he opened his eyes, he noticed that the sandstorm had already vanished, and only the slight breeze that blew ceaselessly remained.
He didn’t have the time to think about where he’d been blown to, he stood up and unclenched his fists.
On the surface of his body, stands of azure energy suddenly condensed into form and suffused out.
At the same time, 2,000 ancient mammoth silhouettes condensed into form above Duan Ling Tian.
“My Wind Force has finally entered the Advanced Stage!” Duan Ling Tian’s feelings surged as he revealed an expression of wild joy.
He was already extremely fortunate that he didn’t die from encountering the sandstorm this time.
Yet he never imagined that he would actually profit from this misfortune and comprehend Advanced Wind Force from the fierce winds in the sandstorm.
Comprehending Advanced Wind Force also meant that Duan Ling Tian’s strength had advanced a level higher.
After his wild joy, Duan Ling Tian calmed down.
“Where’s Little Gold?” Only now did Duan Ling Tian think of the little gold mouse, and he started to search around everywhere.
