Chapter 608: Sword Monarch’s Treasure
Translator: KurazyTolanzuraytor Editor: Jay
“Relying on the senses of my Spiritual Force, Xue Nai’s current Ice Concept ought to be an Intermediate Concept… Moreover, it’s at leaser at the seventh level or above!” Relying on the lifetime worth of experience of the Rebirth Martial Emperor, Duan Ling Tian was vaguely able to deduce the level of the Ice Concept that Han Xue Nai had mastered.
Seventh level Intermediate Concept was equivalent to the strength of 80 ancient horned dragons…
Han Xue Nia’s strength was already extremely shocking to Duan Ling Tian when just solely based on the strength from her Concept and not her cultivation.
After he came back to his senses, Duan Ling Tian didn’t continue cultivation, but instead grabbed the little gold mouse from beneath his sleeve and held her in his hand.
“This little fellow is actually cultivating as well.” As he looked at the little gold mouse that lay in his hand without moving, Duan Ling Tian shook his head and smiled.
To Duan Ling Tian, finding the little gold mouse once again was undoubtedly an extremely happy thing.
What caused Duan Ling Tian to be pleasantly surprised was the little gold mouse had broken through to the Void Initiation Stage, and not only that, she even comprehended second level Lightning Concept.
After he lightly put the little gold mouse down, Duan Ling Tian stood up and walked over to stand on the shoulder of the Three-Eyed Flame Tiger before looking ahead.
Ahead of them were vast lands and behind this vast land, Duan Ling Tian could vaguely see traces of inconspicuous blue that was extremely far from where he was now.
“That’s the… Aqua Domain?” Duan Ling Tian thought in his heart.
A few days later, Duan Ling Tian looked at the blue color that came closer and closer, and he finally confirmed it. “It’s really the Aqua Domain!”
The sea in the distance almost joined into one with the azure sky.
“As the saying goes, both sea and sky are of the same color, it probably speaks of the scene before my eyes.” Duan Ling Tian thought to himself.
Another day and night passed.
At this moment, Duan Ling Tian who stood on the shoulder of the Three-Eyed Flame Tiger could feel waves of sea breeze blowing over, and contained within it was a trace of the smell of the sea mixed within.
“It’s the first time I’m seeing the sea since I came to this world.” Duan Ling Tian sighed in his heart as he gazed at the boundless sea that stretched as far as the eye can see.
The entire Cloud Continent was situated within the boundless Aqua Domain, and this was something that Duan Ling Tian had found out from the memories of the Rebirth Martial Emperor.
Even the Rebirth Martial Emperor at his prime didn’t dare explore deep into the boundless Aqua Domain.
No one knew what was at the other side of the Aqua Domain.
Perhaps it was the boundless Aqua Domain at the other side, or perhaps it was another continent, or perhaps it contained dangers that even Martial Emperor Stage experts were unable to withstand.
Not long after, Duan Ling Tian saw the jade swords enter into the sky above the Aqua Domain and enter the Aqua Domain.
“That Sword Monarch’s Treasure wouldn’t be deep in the Aqua Domain, right?” Meanwhile, someone couldn’t help but exclaim in a low voice.
“The jade swords have stopped!” Suddenly, someone shouted out in surprise, and it attracted the attention of everyone.
Duan Ling Tian looked over and saw that the jade swords that were moving forward all the way had stopped in the distant sky.
Meanwhile, the Three-Eyed Flame Tiger stopped as well.
Instantly, Han Xue Nai and the little gold mouse that were silently cultivating on the back of the Three-Eyed Flame Tiger awoke.
“Squeak squeak~” The little gold mouse blinked her hazy eyes before transforming into a gold light that flashed onto Duan Ling Tian’s shoulder, and then she sized up the scene before her with interest.
“We’ve arrived?” Han Xue Nai arrived by Duan Ling Tian’s side as well, and she looked at the jade sword in the sky with Duan Ling Tian.
The jade sword stopped there and ceaselessly revolved as strands of a jade colored glow suffused out.
“Hiss hiss~” Meanwhile, the two little pythons drilled out from beneath Han Xue Nai’s sleeve, and they flicked their tongues and were in high spirits.
Suddenly, the jade swords moved.
A jade light flashed by and the jade sword actually pierced straight through the calm sea.
Along with the jade sword entering the sea, the calm surface of the sea roiled, transforming into circle after circle of ripples that undulated out, and under the scorching sun, it seemed to glisten.
“Big guy, let’s go down! Remember to use your Origin Energy to protect us.” Han Xue Nai spoke indifferently.
The Three-Eyed Flame Tiger nodded before plunging down.
At the same time, a layer of barrier that was milky white arose on the surface of the Three-Eyed Flame Tiger’s body, and it was precisely the protection barrier formed from his Origin Energy.
Along with the Three-Eyed Flame Tiger’s enormous body entering the sea, waves of violent waves shot into the sky, and it was a shocking show.
With the Three-Eyed Flame Tiger’s Origin Energy barrier protecting them, Duan Ling Tian, Han Xue Nai, and Dong Ming weren’t hit by the sea water.
The sea was completely separated outside by the Origin Energy barrier, and it formed two different worlds with the place Duan Ling Tian stood on.
“Over there!” Suddenly, a wave of voices sounded out through the sea water.
It was Elder Hu who came with Dong Ming that noticed the tracks of the jade sword deep within the sea.
Instantly, the Three-Eyed Flame Tiger and the remaining group of people entered deep into the sea.
After a short moment, the group of people had entered deep sea.
The deep sea was completely pitch black like the night sky, and some life forms that emitted light could be faintly seen to be living in the surroundings.
The milky white barrier that arose on the body of the Three-Eyed Flame Tiger was like a big lightbulb that illuminated half the deep sea.
The remaining group of people opened up an Origin Energy barrier as well as they chased after the jade sword.
“This is the deep sea?” Duan Ling Tian sized up the deep sea and he was able to see some fierce beasts that overestimated themselves and pounced over.
However, these fierce beasts hadn’t even come close when they were easily wiped out by the Three-Eyed Flame Tiger and the others.
For a time, waves of the small of blood suffused out in the deep sea, whereas, the fierce beasts that smelt this blood and came over were even more, they came wave by wave as if there was no end to them.
“Are there no demon beasts here?” As he gazed at the fresh blood that tainted the deep sea’s seaweed red, Duan Ling Tian couldn’t help but be stunned.
Logically speaking, if there were demon beasts here, they would have smelt the smell of blood long ago, and followed it to come here.
“Big Brother Ling Tian, there naturally are demon beasts here… But, don’t forget that demon beasts are existences that possesses the intelligence of humans, and they’d sensed this big guy’s aura from far away, so how would they dare come over to give away their lives?” Han Xue Nai shook her head and smiled.
Duan Ling Tian came to a sudden understanding, and only now did he recall that the big fellow beneath his feet was a formidable demon beast at the ninth level of the Void Initiation Stage.
An ordinary demon beast wouldn’t dare be presumptuous before him.
“But, this is still the outer sea. Although there are many demon beasts, but the strongest are at most at the Void Initiation Stage… If we continue forward towards the inner sea, there’s even the possibility of encountering a Void Interpretation Stage demon beast!” Han Xue Nai said.
“Xue Nai, you seem to be familiar with the Aqua Domain?” Duan Ling Tian asked curiously.
He noticed that when Han Xue Nai introduced the Aqua Domain, she spoke with great familiarity.
“When I was small, my father didn’t have time to accompany me, so I basically asked Qing Nu to bring me to the sea to play.” Han Xue Nai’s face revealed a wisp of sadness as she sighed. “As time passed, the boundless sea had become a part of my childhood…” When she spoke up to here, Han Xue Nai stopped for a moment, and the sadness on her face vanished without a trace. “I heard from Qing Nu that in the depths of the inner sea, there even existed some Void Transformation Stage ‘Demons!’ If one were to towards the core area of the inner sea, it was even possible to encounter a Demon Monarch and Demon Emperor.”
“Demon Monarch? Demon Emperor?” The corners of Duan Ling Tian’s mouth twitched.
According to the information he obtained from the memories of the Rebirth Martial Emperor.
All those years ago, when the Rebirth Martial Emperor had gone deep into the boundless Aqua Domain, he’d once encountered some Demon Monarchs and three Demon Emperors…
One of those Demon Emperors even had a strength that was approaching his.
It was precisely because of this that the Rebirth Martial Emperor thought of how it was unknown what lay within the boundless sea, and he chose to return to Cloud Continent.
“Perhaps, if the Rebirth Martial Emperor continued to go deeper into the boundless Aqua Domain all those years ago, it was possible for him to encounter Demon Emperors that were even stronger than him! This was also the thing the Rebirth Martial Emperor was worried about.” The Rebirth Martial Emperor’s choice at that time was undoubtedly a wise choice in Duan Ling Tian’s opinion.
Dong Ming who stood nearby was terrified to the point his face went pale when he heard Han Xue Nai.
It was the first time he felt that the sea was so terrifying as well.
He originally though only the Foreign Lands possessed existences at the Void Transformation Stage…
Unexpectedly, there were even some in the sea.
The jade sword opened a path in the front, and Duan Ling Tian’s group followed behind.
The deep sea was originally extremely peaceful, yet Duan Ling Tian’s group moving through it caused this peace to be broken.
All along the way, patches of seaweed that glowed and various types of deep sea lifeforms entered into their eyes, causing Duan Ling Tian and the others to be slightly dazzled.
“It’s still going down.” Duan Ling Tian’s brows raised.
He noticed that amongst the 11 people that were outside the Three-Eyed Flame Tiger’s barrier, the Origin Energy barrier on the surface of the bodies of some of them with comparatively weaker cultivations had started to tremble.
The deeper they went down, the greater the pressure that acted upon them.
“All of you, come in.” After another period of time, when he noticed the Origin Energy barrier on the surface of their bodies was close to the verge of collapse, Duan Ling Tian spoke out to them.
When they heard this, it was as if a heavy burden was lifted off their shoulders, and they all passed through the Origin Energy barrier on the surface of the Three-Eyed Flame Tiger’s body that was firm like Mount Tai before descending onto the back of the Three-Eyed Flame Tiger.
“Thank you.” They looked at Duan Ling Tian and thanked him repeatedly.
Duan Ling Tian nodded indifferently and paid no further attention to them.
They didn’t get angry as they were already extremely grateful that this young man would able to lend a hand at a time like this.
Moreover, when they left this place, they’d probably have to rely on this Three-Eyed Flame Tiger, so they had to look for him for help.
When they thought up to here, they were completely unable to get angry.
“We’ve reached the bottom.” Suddenly, the azure clothed old man that was right at the front stopped.
Meanwhile, everyone saw that the jade sword that lead them forward had stopped in the sea now as well, and then it ceaselessly revolved, as if it was searching a step further for the location of the Sword Monarch’s Treasure.
At the bottom of the sea, it was a completely different scene, and it was absolutely beautiful and dazzling to the eyes.
Suddenly, the jade sword moved, and it flashed towards a side.
Everywhere the jade sword passed, Duan Ling Tian and the others would chase after, causing half of the bottom of the sea that was pitch black like ink to be bright like the day for a time.
In next to no time, a tall mountain at the bottom of the sea appeared before the eyes of Duan Ling Tian and the others.
This tall mountain was a few hundred meters tall, whereas a grand door stood at the side of the tall mountain that was before them.
The door was extremely ancient, and although it was at the depths of the sea, it didn’t suffer from any corrosion. Obviously, it was constructed from extraordinary materials.
When the jade sword arrived before the door, it lost its glow and fell down to the ground.
“We’ve arrived.” The gazes of many people lit up.
“This is the door to the Sword Immortal’s Treasure?” Duan Ling Tian’s heart shook lightly as he looked at the large door before his eyes.
“I wonder which Martial Monarch left this treasure? It’s actually so extravagant, and even concealed deep at the bottom of the sea.”
