Chapter 609: The Door That Can’t Be Opened
Translator: KurazyTolanzuraytor Editor: Jay
The door to the Sword Monarch’s Treasure that was situated at the bottom of the sea caused Duan Ling Tian to be shocked.
According to the memories of the Rebirth Martial Emperor, even if it was the Rebirth Martial Emperor himself all those years ago, although he’d played many similar ‘games,’ yet it wasn’t exaggerated and energy consuming to this extent.
“The Martial Monarch that left behind this Sword Monarch’s Treasure seems to have gone too far in playing this game…” Even though he thought like this in his heart, Duan Ling Tian didn’t feel anything was off.
Perhaps the Martial Monarch that left this behind was comparatively more playful.
“How do we go in?” In next to no time, someone noticed this problem.
For a time, the gazes of everyone including Duan Ling Tian started to go around the door and size it up.
They wanted to find the method to open it.
After they looked for a long time, they still couldn’t wrap their heads around it.
“According to the rumor, the nine jade swords are the key to opening the Sword Immortal’s Treasure… But this door doesn’t even have a single keyhole.” Someone said with a frown.
“Looks like we can only force our way in!” A blue clothed middle aged man took a step forward, and with a raise of his hand, his Origin Energy skyrocketed, then his Concept followed like a shadow by his Origin Energy’s side to press onto the door.
An enormous bang sounded out, causing the sea water to roll and become extremely muddy.
At the same time, it shocked the lifeforms at the bottom of the sea to the point they fled in all directions, and it was as if they were fleeing for their lives.
These lifeforms at the bottom of the sea couldn’t even be called wild animals, and they didn’t possess the slightest offensive ability.
The blue clothed middle aged man’s attack caused a great stir, yet the door to the Sword Monarch’s Treasure didn’t budge an inch.
“What a solid door!” The blue clothed middle aged man had a shocked expression as he looked at the door.
He was an existence at the seventh level of the Void Initiation Stage at any rate, but even if he exerted his full strength and Concept, this door actually didn’t move in the slightest.
“Hmph!” Han Xue Nai who stood by Duan Ling Tian’s side snorted lowly, and then she ridiculed. “Don’t forget that this Sword Monarch’s Treasure is a treasure left behind by a Martial Monarch… A Martial Monarch is an existence that is above the Void Transformation Stage. Not to mention a Void Initiation Stage martial artist like you, even a Void Transformation Stage martial artist might not be able to cause harm to something a Martial Monarch left behind.”
The blue clothed middle aged man laughed embarrassedly when he heard Han Xue Nai. “I was rash. Making a move before Young Miss is truly slightly displaying my slight skill before an expert.”
“Young Miss, do you have a way to open this door of the Sword Monarch’s Treasure? If we’re unable to open the door that we’d have really come for nothing.” A green clothed old man looked rather respectfully at Han Xue Nai as he asked.
Instantly, besides Duan Ling Tian who was still sizing up the door, the others had all shot their gazes at Han Xue Nai.
Han Xue Nai was undoubtedly the strongest existence amongst this group of people.
Han Xue Nai frowned slightly unhappily from being stared at by so many people. “Didn’t all of you hear what I just said? This is a treasure left behind by a Martial Monarch. Not to mention me, even a Void Transformation Stage martial artist is unable to do anything, let alone a martial artist like me that hasn’t even stepped into the Void Transformation Stage.”
Everyone was slightly embarrassed when they heard this.
But when they heard the words of the young girl, they finally confirmed a thing, and that was that the young girl wasn’t a ‘Demon.’
If she was a ‘Demon,’ it would be impossible for her to not possess a cultivation at the Void Transformation Stage.
“Looks like this young girl is probably a disciple from a formidable power in the Foreign Lands… Her age is so young, yet she’s already broken through to the Void Interpretation Stage. How strong would the power she’s from be?” The same thought emerged in the hearts of many people, and they felt a wave of shock.
This was more shocking that the young girl being a ‘Demon.’
No matter how strong a Demon was, it would only be a single existence, an existence at the Void Transformation Stage, whereas, a power that was able to develop a Void Interpretation Stage expert that was at the age of 15 or 16 had hidden resources and reserves that could be easily imagined.
Even if there was a Martial Monarch existing within that power, they wouldn’t be surprised.
Not to mention the Darkhan Dynasty, even if it was in the history of the various Dynasties, a Void Interpretation Stage expert at the age of 15 or 16 had never appeared.
It was even to the extent that even a Void Interpretation Stage expert below the age of 30 had never appeared in the various Dynasties.
“Big Brother Ling Tian, have you noticed anything?” Xue Nai looked at the nearby Duan Ling Tian and asked.
The reason she asked was mainly because she saw that Duan Ling Tian’s eyes had suddenly lit up briefly.
“Xue Nai.” Duan Ling Tian’s eyes flashed and stared fixedly at the door to the Sword Monarch’s Treasure as he spoke slowly. “In the rumors, the key to opening this treasure was the nine jade swords… I think that if we want to open this door, we have to start with the nine jade swords.”
“Hmph!” Han Xue Nai hadn’t even spoken when the azure clothed old man that stood at the side of the door, the one called Elder Hu that came with Dong Ming, had already spoken in ridicule. “All of us know of what you just said…”
“Not to mention there isn’t even a single keyhole to fit a jade sword on the door… Even if there really are nine keyholes, the nine jade swords have already combined into one now, so how do you want to open it?”
Elder Hu’s words obtained the approval of many people.
“Old goat! My Big Brother Ling Tian is speaking, what are you interrupting for? If you think your life is too long, then this Young Miss doesn’t mind to send you on your way!” When she saw Elder Hu ridiculing Duan Ling Tian, Han Xue Nai was instantly unhappy, and she flared up.
Since she was young, because of her special identity, besides some sisters that were of similar age to her, she didn’t have any other friends of the same age.
Practically all the other people of the same age as her would treat her with an attitude of looking up to her, and every single one of them would be respectful and reverent.
Everyone she saw others having big brothers and big sisters to dote upon them, she would feel a wave of envy in her heart.
All of this was until she met Duan Ling Tian.
Duan Ling Tian didn’t treat her like the people that used to be by her side, he’d completely treated her like a little sister, and allowed her to feel the warmth that came from a big brother for the first time.
Since that moment, she’d taken Duan Ling Tian to be her big brother, and she enjoyed the loving care of a big brother.
Now, someone actually dared to ridicule her big brother?
Along with Han Xue Nai speaking, strands of coldness arose around her body for no reason.
The coldness was icy cold to the extreme as it swept out.
For a time, the sea water rolled and it was affected greatly.
After a short moment, some of the sea water at the bottom of the sea had even condensed into pieces of ice that fell down to the ground.
The amount of ice pierces increased ceaselessly.
If this were to continue, it would probably not be long before the seawater around everyone would condense into ice.
“You…” Elder Hu’s face went pale, only now did he recall how terrifying this yellow clothed young girl was, and she wasn’t someone he could deal with.
Now, he wished for nothing more than to slap himself.
Why did he have to have nothing better to do and say so much, it was simply like he himself was looking for trouble.
“Young Miss, I think this Senior ought to have no ill intentions.” Someone looked at Han Xue Nai and persuaded in a light voice.
“Yeah, this Senior was thinking for the common benefit of everyone, and that’s why he was slightly rash… I hope that Young Miss can calm your anger.” Many people followed suit.
In their eyes now, the yellow clothed young girl before them was a living King Yama, and she controlled their lives.
If the young girl were to continue like this, they would undoubtedly be burial objects by the azure clothed old man’s side.
That coldness that was icy cold to the extreme was still ceaselessly increasing.
It would probably not be long before the surrounding seawater would transform into hard ice, whereas, they would be frozen within with a slim chance of survival.
Unless they left now, abandoning the Sword Monarch’s Treasure, and abandoning everything that was within it.
But how would they be willing to leave like this?
They’d anticipated this day for a long time.
Now, the people present hated Elder Hu to the extreme. If it wasn’t for him, would the young girl become enraged?
“Brother Ling Tian.” Dong Ming looked at Ling Tian with a gaze that was filled with an imploring expression.
As far a she was concerned, only Duan Ling Tian was able to calm the young girl’s rage now.
“Forget it, Xue Nai.” Duan Ling Tian glanced coldly at the azure clothed old man, and then he lightly smiled as he looked at Han Xue Nai. “There’s no need to get angry with some people, just take it as if his words are farts… Moreover, if a dog bites us, we can’t bite it in return, right? Then what difference would there be between us and a dog?”
Duan Ling Tian’s words caused the gazes of everyone present to become strange.
Elder Hu’s expression was grim.
Duan Ling Tian called him a dog?
The corners of Han Xue Nai’s mouth lightly trembled as a trace of a smile appeared.
At the same time, the coldness on her body was restrained, yet her eyes that were filled with rage still stared at Elder Hu. “Apologize to Big Brother Ling Tian, otherwise, die!”
When the people present heard Han Xue Nai’s angry and overbearing words, they felt a chill run down their spines.
They didn’t doubt the young girl’s words in the slightest.
They’d witnessed the young girl’s strength with their own two eyes.
Elder Hu’s expression went gloomy.
She wanted him to apologize to a person that had just humiliated him?
As an eighth level Void Initiation Stage martial artist, he had his own dignity.
But when he felt the killing intent contained in the young girl’s eyes, his heart couldn’t help but tremble.
Especially now when numerous anxious voice transmissions pierced into his ears.
Without exception, all these voice transmissions were the people present persuading him to apologize.
This time, he’d obviously aroused public anger.
In the end, Elder Hu gritted his teeth, and then he took a deep breath before looking at Duan Ling Tian. “I’m sorry.”
Duan Ling Tian nodded indifferently.
“Xue Nai.” When the others heaved a sigh of relief, Duan Ling Tian looked at Han Xue Nai. “Pick up that jade sword and pass it to me.”
Presently, they were at the bottom of the sea, and Duan Ling Tian knew that it was difficult for the barrier formed by his Origin Energy to withstand the water pressure.
So he had no way of picking up the jade sword that was on the ground before the door by himself.
Although she didn’t know what Duan Ling Tian wanted to do, Han Xue Nai still flew out, and she raised up an Origin Energy barrier on her body before grabbing the jade sword with a raise of her hand.
In the blink of an eye, she’d returned to Duan Ling Tian’s side and passed the jade sword to Duan Ling Tian. “Big Brother Ling Tian, why do you want this jade sword?”
“It’s nothing, I just want to try and see if my guess is correct.” Duan Ling Tian lightly smiled.
For a time, the gazes of everyone descended onto Duan Ling Tian, and they were all curious about what he wanted to do.
“Squeak squeak~” The little gold mouse stood on Duan Ling Tian’s shoulder with her jade green eyes opened wide as she sized up the jade sword in Duan Ling Tian’s hand with interest.
