Chapter 590: Han Xue Nai
Translator: KurazyTolanzuraytor Editor: Jay
The grade four spirit sword Duan Ling Tian used to exchange for the Void Fuse Fruit was precisely the spirit sword given to him by the Pavilion Master of the Darkhan Dynasty’s Milky Way City’s Treasure Gathering Pavilion.
“King Yong, this place is?” Duan Ling Tian’s group of ten followed behind King Yong to arrive before the pavilion, and one of them couldn’t refrain from asking.
“This is the treasure vault of our Darkstone Empire’s Imperial Family. Within it is numerous valuable materials, and some medicinal pills and spirit weapons…” King Yong spoke slowly.
“Spirit weapons?” The gazes of many people lit up. “Are there grade four spirit weapons?”
King Yong shook his head. “There are only grade five spirit weapons.”
Instantly, many people present were slightly flagging with interest.
But there were a few people that were very interested.
Although they had grade five spirit weapons in their possessions, it was temporarily lent to them by their respective powers backing them.
Once they were eliminated in the Dynasty Martial Competition, then they’d have to hand it in once they returned.
If they were able to obtain a grade five spirit weapon now, then it would undoubtedly be a good thing for them.
Of course, there were also those like Duan Ling Tian and Su Li who possessed a grade five spirit weapon that belonged to themselves.
These people weren’t really interested towards grade five spirit weapons.
“The treasure vault of the Darkstone Empire ought to have some good things.” In next to no time, the gazes of those people that possessed their own grade five spirit weapons lit up, and their eyes were filled with anticipation.
“Remember that all of you are only allowed to select one treasure from within… If there’s someone who’s greedy, then they’ll bleed on the edge of a sword!” One of the old men behind King Yong swept Duan Ling Tian’s group of ten with a fierce gaze as he spoke in a low voice.
Duan Ling Tian’s group nodded.
What a joke!
Stealing treasures under the eyes of King Yong and two old fellows that seemed to be at the seventh level of the Void Initiation Stage? Wasn’t that courting death?
Finally, the gate to the Darkstone Empire’s treasure vault was opened.
The scene that entered their eyes was a glitter of gold and jade, and it caused the eyes of Duan Ling Tian and the others to be dazzled.
Right when King Yong was intending to bring Duan Ling Tian and the others in.
“Wait!” A voice that was moving like the chirping of an oriole suddenly sounded out from the horizon.
Instantly, Duan Ling Tian and the others couldn’t help but turn around.
A yellow colored figure was like a bolt of lightning as it descended from high above in the sky, and in the blink of an eyes, the figure had descended before Duan Ling Tian and the others.
A beautiful yellow clothed young girl appeared before their eyes, and even the guards that came over after hearing the sounds over here couldn’t help but be stunned.
This person that descended from the sky is actually a young girl?
Based on this young girl’s appearance, she’s at most at the age of 15 or 16…
A 15 or 16 year old Void Prying Stage martial artist?
The group of guards felt their scalps go numb.
Actually, it wasn’t just them, even King Yong, the two old men behind him, and the group of young geniuses were dumbstruck.
Compared to this yellow clothed young girl before them, they felt that they’d lived all these years in vain.
When they were at this age, it was already not bad if they had a cultivation at the Origin Core Stage.
“Watch out!” Right at this moment, King Yong seemed to have noticed something, and his face went grim as he shouted out.
At the same time, a black and a white bolt of lightning shot towards Duan Ling Tian at an extremely swift speed.
Amongst the people present, only King Yong, the two old men behind him, Mo Xuan, and He Long were able to see the path their two bolts of lightning flashed on.
“Hiss hiss~” In next to no time, they saw a scene that shocked them.
They saw that a little python had appeared on each of Duan Ling Tian’s shoulders.
The two little pythons were black and white respectively, and they were utterly unable to discern what type of pythons these were.
Presently, the two little pythons were flicking their tongues as they licked Duan Ling Tian’s face happily.
“Little Black, Little White.” Duan Ling Tian recovered from the shock of seeing the yellow clothed young girl appear as well, and then he stretched out his hand to grab the two little pythons in his hand before lightly smiling and sizing them up.
“Hehe… Big Brother Ling Tian.” Meanwhile, the yellow clothed young girl that stood at the side looked at Duan Ling Tian.
“Xue Nai.” Duan Ling Tian looked at the young girl, and he had a slightly pleasantly surprised expression. “How did all of you know I was here?”
The yellow clothed young girl before him was none other that Han Xue Nai who took the two little pythons away all those years ago.
“Big Brother Ling Tian, I, Little Black, and Little White went back to that cave to looks for you, but unexpectedly, you’d already left… So, we went looking for you all the way until here.” Han Xue Nai lightly smiled as she said, “I heard that you came to this Darkstone Empire to participate in some Young Genius Competition?”
“It’s already over.” Duan Ling Tian nodded.
“It’s over?” Han Xue Nai drooped her little head, and she was slightly dispirited, and then she seemed to have thought of something and asked. “Then what are all of you doing here now?”
“This is the Darkstone Empire’s Imperial Family’s treasure vault, and we’re about to enter to take our rewards from the Young Genius Competition this time. We’re allowed to choose one treasure each,” said Duan Ling Tian.
“Treasure? Can I go in and choose with you?” Han Xue Nai’s eyes glowed as she’d become interested.
“This… You have to ask King Yong.” Duan Ling Tian looked at King Yong with an embarrassed expression, and then he sent a voice transmission with a slightly perturbed feeling in his heart. “King Yong, she’s a young girl and doesn’t know any better, don’t…”
Duan Ling Tian hadn’t even finished speaking his words of remedy when Han Xue Nai had already walked to arrive before King Yong, and she wasn’t afraid in the slightest when facing King Yong who had a solemn expression.
Han Xue Nai soared into the sky and stretched out her white wrist to lightly pat King Yong. “Uncle Red Mole, I want to go in and choose treasures with Big Brother Ling Tian as well, is that alright?”
“Xue Nai!” Never had Duan Ling Tian imagined that Han Xue Nai would do such an insane action, and he instantly felt his scalp go numb.
Uncle Red Mole?
The others were dumbstruck when they heard Han Xue Nai, and this included King Yong and the two old men behind him.
Subsequently, the crowd of people glanced at Han Xue Nai with a gaze of pity.
As far as they were concerned, although this young girl was beautiful in appearance, and possessed natural talent in the Martial Dao that was extraordinary.
But joking without respect to the number one expert of the Darkstone Empire, King Yong, would probably cause her to lose her life.
“King Yong…” Duan Ling Tian took a deep breath, and he wanted to plead for mercy on Han Xue Nai’s behalf.
“Of course you can.” King Yong spoke, interrupting Duan Ling Tian and causing him to be flabbergasted.
He saw King Yong look at Han Xue Nai with a genial expression and a smile on his face. “Little Girl, since you’re interested in the treasure vault of our Darkstone Empire’s Imperial Family, then go in with them… You can choose all of the treasures within, take whatever you want.”
“Thank you, Uncle Red Mole.” Han Xue Nai’s eyes lit up before her figure flashed out, seeming to have transformed into a gust of wind that dashed into the treasure vault.
At this moment, she’d tossed Duan Ling Tian to the back of her head.
Outside the treasure vault, everyone including Duan Ling Tian was dumbstruck, and all of them looked at King Yong in disbelief.
“King Yong is so amiable?” Duan Ling Tian and some of the people that weren’t so familiar with King Yong thought in their hearts.
Only some of the people who’d heard of King Yong’s deed had expressions of disbelief. “King Yong was actually so courteous to that young girl… Could it be that she’s has some great background?”
At this moment, even the two old men behind King Yong thought in this way.
“All of you, go in.” King Yong restrained the smile on his face and recovered his expressionless face before speaking indifferently to Duan Ling Tian and the others.
Duan Ling Tian and the others instantly entered the treasure vault.
“King Yong…” Meanwhile, the two old men behind King Yong looked at King Yong at the same time with bewildered expressions.
“Revered Elders, I know what the two of you want to ask… We can’t afford to offend this young girl.” King Yong sighed, and slight terror appeared deep within his eyes.
The two old men were instantly petrified when they heard this.
Can’t afford to offend?
King Yong said such words?
In next to no time, they thought of the accomplishments that the young girl had achieved at such an age, and they couldn’t help but come to a sudden understanding. “Perhaps this young girl is the daughter of the higher-ups from one of the top powers in the Darkhan Dynasty!”
Duan Ling Tian followed the group of people to enter the treasure vault.
But in his heart, he constantly carried traces of bewilderment.
The change in King Yong’s attitude was too strange.
“Could it be that Xue Nai used a voice transmission earlier to tell King Yong of her background?” In the end, Duan Ling Tian could only think in this way.
According to his knowledge, the yellow clothed young girl, Han Xue Nai, was from the foreign lands.
According to his guesses, there was an enormous power behind Xue Nai.
Otherwise, how could they possibly assist her to possess this cultivation at such a young age.
“Wait!” Duan Ling Tian seemed to have thought of something, and his face changed into an expression of shock. “How did I not notice earlier… Xue Nai’s current appearance seems to be completely the same as one year ago, there was utterly no change!”
“Logically speaking, she’s at least over 20 years old now… Yet her appearance is still like a young girl around the age of 15 or 16, and she’s just like a little child that can’t grow up.” Duan Ling Tian’s heart shook when he thought up to here.
The maiden of heavenly mountain!
At the first possible moment, a terrifying thought emerged in Duan Ling Tian’s heart.
He still remembered that in the earth of his previous life, there was a famous Wuxia novel that had an existence that was called the maiden of heavenly mountain.
That maiden had an age over 100 yet had the appearance of a young girl.
“Could it be that Xue Nai is a hundred plus year old Old Demon? Old Monster?” Duan Ling Tian’s heart trembled as he felt a chill run down his spine.
Subsequently, Duan Ling Tian looked at Han Xue Nai who was leafing through the entire treasure vault, and then his Spiritual Force silently stretched out with an intention of discovering Han Xue Nai’s cultivation.
Unfortunately, his Spiritual Force had only just arrived a meter away from Han Xue Nai went it was like a stone that sank into the sea, and there was no response from it any longer.
“It seems as if there’s some sort of energy that’s stopping me from detecting Xue Nai’s cultivation… Yet this feeling is completely different from when I use my Spiritual Force on a Void Interpretation Stage expert like King Yong.” Duan Ling Tian suddenly felt that this yellow clothed young girl of unknown background had an identity that was more and more mysterious.
“Hiss hiss~” Right at this moment, the sounds of the two little pythons flicking their tongues sounded out by Duan Ling Tian’s ear once again.
“Right, how could I have forgotten the two of you?” Duan Ling Tian looked at the two little pythons and sent a voice transmission into their ears. “Little Black, Little White… Both of you ought to be able to communicate with me via voice transmission, right? If you two are unable to do that, then both of you’ll be even inferior to Little Gold.”
“Big Brother, we’re much more formidable than her! We were able to communicate with Big Sister Xue Nai using voice transmission since we were at the Void Prying Stage.”
“Exactly, exactly… Big Brother, we’re extremely formidable!”
Two anxious and immature voice transmissions entered into Duan Ling Tian’s ears at the same time.
The first voice transmission was like the voice of a young boy, whereas, the second voice transmission was instead like the voice of a young girl.
