Translator: KurazyTolanzuraytor Editor: Jay
“There are three days more before the time to gather with the possessors of the other jade swords… Big Brother Ling Tian, have you contacted them during this period of time?” Han Xue Nai looked at Duan Ling Tian and asked.
“No.” Duan Ling Tian shook his head.
During this period of time, he’d been busy cultivating, so how could he have time to care about anything else?
“I think that some of them have surely arrived at the Eastern Mulberry Empire’s Imperial City at this time… It’s even to the extent that they’re possibly staying in some of the inns in the Imperial City.” Han Xue Nai guessed.
“Perhaps… After we return to the room, we can contact them.” Duan Ling Tian nodded, and then he said, “It’s late, sleep earlier.”
“Mmm.” Han Xue Nai nodded, and her eyes were still filled with excitement when she returned to her room.
“This little girl is even more excited than me.” Duan Ling Tian shook his head and smiled.
After Duan Ling Tian returned to his room, his gaze flashed. “I’ve finally advanced my cultivation to the Void Initiation Stage before entering the Sword Monarch’s Treasure!”
After washing up, Duan Ling Tian lay on his bed and withdrew the jade sword, and his Origin Energy fused into the Void Transmission Inscription in the jade sword.
Instantly, a sonorous voice that seemed familiar entered into Duan Ling Tian’s ears. “Brother, you’ve finally appeared… We’ll be able to meet each other in a few days, I’m really anticipating it.”
“Me too.” Duan Ling Tian recalled who the owner of this sonorous voice was.
All those years ago, when he was still in the Crimson Sky Kingdom and had contacted the other possessors of the jade swords for the first time via the Voice Transmission Inscription in the jade sword, and he’d precisely contacted this person.
“I’ve already arrived at the Imperial City of Eastern Mulberry Empire… Where’re all of you?” Another voice sounded out.
This was a completely unfamiliar voice to Duan Ling Tian, and it ought to be a possessor of another jade sword.
“I’ve arrived at the Imperial City as well.”
“I haven’t arrived yet, I’m still on the way… I ought to be able to arrive at Pheasant Ridge on time, three days from now.”
“I’ll be able to arrive at the Imperial City of Eastern Mulberry City tomorrow.”
Subsequently, numerous voices sounded out, and they were all the possessors of the other jade swords.
“Right, Brother… Have you brought a friend? According to our agreement, every one of us is able to bring along a person to enter the Sword Monarch’s Treasure.” Suddenly, the owner of the sonorous voice spoke once again, and he was obviously speaking to Duan Ling Tian.
“Yes, I’ve brought a friend.” Duan Ling Tian replied.
Originally, he was worried that the possessors of the other jade swords might have objections about him bringing Xue Nai to head to the Sword Monarch’s Treasure with him.
But now it would seem that it wasn’t rude to bring Xue Nai with him.
“But, with Xue Nai’s strength, even if it was to kill everyone at the instant the Sword Monarch’s Treasure opens up… It wouldn’t be a difficult thing.” Duan Ling Tian recalled Han Xue Nai’s strength, and he felt a slight chill run down his spine.
“Right! If Xue Nai kills everyone at the instant the Sword Monarch’s Treasure opens up… Then wouldn’t Xue Nai and I be able to monopolize all the treasures in the Sword Monarch’s Treasure?” When he thought up to here, Duan Ling Tian’s breathing became slightly hurried.
Dawn the next day, Duan Ling Tian and Han Xue Nai both walked out of their rooms before leaving the inn, and then they had breakfast in a nearby restaurant.
Not long after, the restaurant was seated full with guests.
“I heard that the Tang Clan will auction off a treasure at the square at the center of the city this afternoon… At that time, we can properly join in the fun.”
“Doesn’t the Tang Clan have its own auction house? Why aren’t they auctioning it in the auction house?”
“I don’t know about that… But seeing how the Tang Clan is giving wide publicity to it, that treasure is probably extraordinary.”
“I’m interested as well after hearing what you said… Let’s go together when the time comes.”
A wave of discussion sounded out from the table beside Duan Ling Tian, and it was three young man wearing embroidered clothes that were chatting idly.
“Big Brother Ling Tian, let’s go join in the fun in the afternoon as well?” Han Xue Nai’s eyes glowed, and she was obviously interested in the treasure of the Tang Clan.
“Okay.” Duan Ling Tian nodded as he was interested as well.
“It would be great if it’s the Ageless Root…” Duan Ling Tian sighed in his heart.
But he knew that that was practically an impossible thing.
Even if the Tang Clan had an Ageless Root, it would probably be impossible for them to give so much publicity to it.
The center square of the Imperial City of Eastern Mulberry Empire was undoubtedly an existence that was similar to the center square at the Imperial City of Darkstone Empire, and it was extremely bustling with streams of people gushing about.
At that day, the Darkstone Empire’s Young Genius Competition was held in a similar place of the Imperial City of Darkstone Empire.
As far as Duan Ling Tian was concerned, since the Tang Clan was doing it in such a grand scale, that treasure would surely be a publicly acknowledged treasure and not the Ageless Root that many people would be unable to recognize.
After they ate their breakfast, they started to walk around the Imperial City.
All along the way, Duan Ling Tian could hear that every corner of the Imperial City was now filled with the news about the treasure the Tang Clan would auction off in the afternoon.
“We must go earlier in the afternoon so that we can occupy a good spot.”
“It would be great if I was a martial artist at the Void Prying Stage or above, there’re many spots in the sky.”
“Yeah, if it’s an existence at the Void Prying Stage or above, they utterly have no need of fighting for spots on the ground.”
Duan Ling Tian was able to hear these discussions from all over.
“Big Brother Ling Tian, I’m more and more interested towards the thing that the Tang Clan is going to auction off later in the afternoon.” Han Xue Nai giggled as her eyes that were like water revealed a trace of slyness.
“Xue Nai, if you like it later, I’ll buy it for you.” Duan Ling Tian was rather confident now.
All along the way, the wealth in his possession had already accumulated to an extremely terrifying degree.
During these past few years, not only had he found and plundered a great amount of wealth, even the Spatial Rings of the people that died in his hands contained a great deal of wealth.
His wealth accumulated more and more.
Up until today, he was slightly unable to remember exactly how much wealth was in his possession.
“Big Brother Ling Tian, if I’m really interested, then I’ll directly seize it… Is there any need for you to spend money?” Han Xue Nai blinked her sly eyes as she smiled.
The corners of Duan Ling Tian’s mouth couldn’t help but twitch when he heard this.
Right, with Xue Nai’s strength, it wasn’t difficult to seize a treasure from the hands of the Eastern Mulberry Empire’s Tang Clan.
After all, even if it was the number one expert of the Darkstone Empire, King Yong, was extremely terrified before Xue Nai.
The strongest expert in this Eastern Mulberry Empire would at most be at the same level as King Yong and was most probably inferior to Xue Nai.
At the afternoon, Duan Ling Tian brought along Han Xue Nai and the two little pythons to fly in the air and arrive at the center square of the Imperial City.
“So many people.” Duan Ling Tian looked down at the center square, he noticed there was a huge crowd of people, to the point he could see numerous heads ceaselessly flowing about, and it was extremely bustling.
Presently, there were many Void Prying Stage martial artists high above in the sky.
These martial artists had mostly come to join in the fun.
“The Tang Clan made such a commotion today, I wonder what treasure they want to auction off…” Someone spoke curiously.
“No matter what treasure it is, we must properly widen our knowledge today.”
“The Tang Clan has never sought popularity by issuing shocking statements before. I presume they’re really going to auction of an extraordinary treasure today.”
More and more martial artists at the Void Prying Stage and above converged and discussed animatedly.
Duan Ling Tian and Han Xue Nai stood in the sky closest to the square.
Presently, a high platform stood at the center of the square.
This high platform had just been established, and it was obviously specially built by the Tang Clan for the sake of the auction this afternoon.
A young man in embroidered clothes flashed over from far away, and he descended not far from Duan Ling Tian and Han Xue Nai.
Duan Ling Tian didn’t have any reaction to this, whereas, Han Xue Nai had frowned instead, and then she turned to the side to look at the young man. “You, go away! Don’t stand beside me and my Big Brother Ling Tian and disturb us.”
Obviously, Han Xue Nai had taken this area of the sky that she and Duan Ling Tian stood in to be her own private territory.
The embroidered clothed young man was first stunned when he heard Han Xue Nai, and when he turned around and saw Han Xue Nai’s appearance, he revealed a smile of lust. “Little lady, don’t worry, Big Brother guarantees to not disturb you.”
“But little lady, you’re really beautiful… Smile for Big Brother.” The young man in embroidered clothes spoke frivolously as he flew forward to approach Han Xue Nai.
At the same time, he stretched out his hand towards Han Xue Nai’s chin.
Duan Ling Tian glanced at the embroidered clothed young man with pity.
He knew that misfortune was about to strike this fellow.
At practically the instant that this though emerged in Duan Ling Tian’s mind.
Two ear piercing howls resounded out.
A black and a white bolt of lightning flashed out from beneath Han Xue Nai’s sleeve and flashed straight towards the young man.
In the next moment, a bloody hole had appeared on both the chest and throat of the young man, and dazzling and resplendent fresh blood sprayed out from the holes.
The young man didn’t even have the time to emit a shrill cry, and he maintained the posture of wanting to touch Han Xue Nai’s chin as he directly felt downwards.
The young man descended onto the high platform that was built at the center of the square, and he was completely devoid of any signs of life.
Instantly the surroundings went into an uproar.
“Isn’t this the Bai Clan’s Third Young Master, Bai Fan?”
“Exactly, it’s Bai Fan! I truly never imagined that this Bai Fan would walk unhindered in the Imperial City of our Eastern Mulberry Empire for so long, yet has fallen here today.”
“Yeah, I truly never imagined this.”
Waves of exclamations sounded out from all over in a timely manner.
Of course, most of them were taking pleasure in his misfortune.
Obviously, Bai Fan’s public reputation wasn’t good.
“Hiss hiss~” Meanwhile, the two little pythons returned to Han Xue Nai’s hand, and they glared fiercely at Bai Fan’s corpse.
“Alright, he’s already dead.” Han Xue Nai smiled lightly, and she lightly rubbed the little heads of the two little fellows.
The two little fellows instantly closed their eyes in enjoyment.
“Xue Nai, even I feel slightly jealous from seeing Little Black and Little White be so intimate with you.” Duan Ling Tian joked.
But Han Xue Nai was able to perceive that he was joking, yet the two little pythons weren’t able to.
In the next moment, a black and a white bolt of lightning flashed out from Han Xue Nai’s hand and descended onto Duan Ling Tian’s shoulder in the end.
The two little pythons flicked their tongues to lick Duan Ling Tian’s face as if they were consoling him.
