Chapter 610: Reappearance of the Nine Swords
Translator: KurazyTolanzuraytor Editor: Jay
“Hiss hiss~” The two little pythons were the same, they’d stuck out their heads from beneath Han Xue Nai’s sleeve and stared at Duan Ling Tian with interest.
On the other hand, Duan Ling Tian, who’d attracted the gazes of everyone present, held the jade sword in his hand.
Subsequently, his Origin Energy fused within it.
“I hope my guess isn’t wrong.” Duan Ling Tian thought in his heart.
According to Duan Ling Tian’s guess, it was extremely likely that the reason the jade sword in his hand was able to transform into nine swords and combine back into one was because of some sort of miraculous Inscription Formation inscribed on it.
It was precisely because of this that the nine jade swords were able to combine into one.
The Rebirth Martial Emperor had once encountered this type of Inscription Formation, and although he couldn’t be considered to be extensively knowledgeable in it, he knew a certain amount of the principles behind it.
Along with Duan Ling Tian’s Origin Energy fusing into it, a milky white flame arose explosively on the surface of the jade sword, and it burned brightly.
“What does he want to do?” This was the thought in the hearts of most people.
“Big Brother Ling Tian.” Han Xue Nai looked at Duan Ling Tian with her beautiful and watery eyes that contained slight anticipation mixed within.
“Hmph!” As for Elder Hu who stood far away at the side, he snorted to himself as ridicule leaped about in his eyes.
“Let’s see how you lose face!” Elder Hu laughed slightly at the misfortune he perceived Duan Ling Tian would encounter.
“It works!” On the other hand, the eyes of Duan Ling Tian who originally had a serious expression flashed, and a smile bloomed on his face.
Duan Ling Tian’s Origin Energy fused into the jade sword, and sure enough, he noticed the traces of an inscription. Moreover, it wasn’t only a single inscription, but nine that formed into a miraculous Inscription Formation.
“It’s exactly similar to the Inscription Formation the Rebirth Martial Emperor was lucky enough to see all those years ago!” Duan Ling Tian heaved a sigh of relief.
It looked like his guess was correct.
“Since nine can unite into one, then one can naturally divide into nine…” With a thought in his heart, his Origin Energy fused into the Inscription Formation, and it started to disturb the circulation of the nine inscriptions within.
After a short moment.
A dazzling jade glow suddenly arose on the jade sword in Duan Ling Tian’s hand, and it was like the scorching sun as it caused everyone present to unconsciously close their eyes, and even Han Xue Nai was no exception.
When they returned to their senses, they were completely stunned.
What have we seen?
In the distance, the violet clothed young man stood there, and he faintly revealed traces of mysteriousness.
Of course, this was a thought that suddenly arose in their hearts.
Most importantly were the nine jade swords that were in the violet clothed young man’s hand.
“The jade sword has divided into nine again?” Everyone looked at each other, and it was slightly difficult for them to believe it.
Some people even rubbed their eyes fiercely, and they even thought they were seeing things. Only after they rubbed their eyes and still saw nine jade swords in Duan Ling Tian’s hand did they confirm it.
The jade swords had really become nine once again.
“Big Brother Ling Tian, how did you do it?” Han Xue Nai’s beautiful eyes glowed as she looked at Duan Ling Tian with surprise.
Although she had an extraordinary background, it was still the first time she’d seen such a miraculous thing.
The nine jade swords that had united into one had actually split up once more.
“I don’t know as well… I just fused my Origin Energy into it and then it divided into nine.”
The complicatedness of an Inscription Formation was something an outsider wouldn’t know, and only Inscription Masters understood it.
So Duan Ling Tian only shrugged and casually replied without speaking the truth.
But Han Xue Nai wasn’t fooled so easily, and she glanced deeply at Duan Ling Tian before sending a voice transmission. “Big Brother Ling Tian, once we come out from the Sword Monarch’s Treasure, you must tell me how you did it…”
“When I picked up the jade sword earlier, I fused my Origin Energy inside to probe it, yet it didn’t have the slightest reaction, whereas, in your hand, it directly became nine jade swords, so you’ve surely done something to it.” Han Xue Nai finished speaking in one go.
Duan Ling Tian laughed bitterly.
This young girl was really intelligent, and she was even able to see through this.
“Alright, after we come out from the Sword Monarch’s Treasure, I’ll tell you in detail… Wait! How do you know I’m able to open the Sword Monarch’s Treasure?” As he finished speaking, Duan Ling Tian shuddered and asked Han Xue Nai.
After all, the door to the Sword Monarch’s Treasure was completely flat, and not a single keyhole had appeared…
“Big Brother Ling Tian, I believe that you surely have a way,” said Han Xue Nai.
Duan Ling Tian was slightly speechless.
This young girl believes so much in me?
But needless to say, the feeling of being adored like this was very satisfying…
Especially when it was a ‘monster’ like Han Xue Nai, and it caused Duan Ling Tian to feeling as if he was walking on air.
“Brother Ling Tian, now that the jade sword has split into nine, what will you do?” Dong Ming looked at Duan Ling Tian and asked curiously.
Presently, Dong Ming’s expression contained slight admiration mixed within.
Although Duan Ling Tian said that it was extremely simple earlier, he knew clearly in his heart that it was impossible for all this to be as simple as it looked on the surface.
Otherwise, why would only Duan Ling Tian have thought of doing this?
Since everyone present was an existence at the Void Initiation Stage or above, it showed that none of them were stupid people.
“There’s no need for me after this.” Duan Ling Tian shook his head.
Under the astonished gazes of everyone present, Duan Ling Tian let go of his hand that held onto the nine jade swords.
Subsequently, the nine jade swords shot out to flash towards the door of the Sword Monarch’s Treasure, and they seemed to have transformed into nine jade green bolts of lightning.
Practically at the instant the nine jade swords flew out and under the gazes of everyone present, nine holes that flickered with white light appeared out of thin air on the door.
More precisely speaking, it was nine keyholes.
Swish! Swish! Swish! Swish! Swish!
The nine jade swords flashed out, flashing through the sea water and emitting a wave of sword howls.
In next to no time, the nine jade swords had aimed precisely at the nine keyholes on the door and fiercely collided onto it.
Clang! Clang! Clang! Clang! Clang!
The nine jade swords had aimed precisely at the nine keyholes and flawlessly entered into it.
Right at this moment, nine strong lights flashed by, and it caused everyone, including Duan Ling Tian, to be unable to refrain from closing their eyes, and when they opened their eyes once more, they noticed that the nine jade swords had actually already perfectly fused with the door…
Suddenly, the door started trembling.
A wave of rumbling clearly entered into the ears of Duan Ling Tian and the others, and it was like thunder reverberating in their ears.
The speed the sound transmitted out underwater wasn’t the slightest bit slower to when it transmitted out in air.
At the same time, the door moved upwards to gradually vanish before the eyes of Duan Ling Tian and the others.
“What’s that? An Origin Energy barrier? It actually completely separated to sea water outside…” Suddenly, someone exclaimed in shock.
Meanwhile, the others clearly saw that after the door was opened, a layer of semi-translucent barrier had appeared before the eyes of everyone.
Behind the barrier was a completely dusky scene, and it seemed as if extremely dark clouds and mist were pulsating, causing them to be unable to clearly see the situation within.
“It’s an Inscription Formation again!” Duan Ling Tian’s pupils constricted as his heart started trembling lightly.
“Could it be that the Martial Monarch who left behind the Sword Monarch’s Treasure was an Inscription Master? First it was the miraculous Inscription Formation that united nine swords into one and split one sword into nine. Now it’s an Inscription Formation that keeps the sea water out.” Duan Ling Tian sighed emotionally in his heart.
Two types of Inscription Formations.
The formed was something that even the Rebirth Martial Artist didn’t study extensively all those years ago, and the Rebirth Martial Artist had even taken this to be a regret of his, whereas, the latter was more ordinary.
So long as Duan Ling Tian’s strength was sufficient and the materials were enough, he would be able to set it up.
“It’s all thanks to Brother Ling Tian.”
“Yeah! Otherwise, we’d probably be denied entrance today.”
Instantly, the people present looked at Duan Ling Tian as they gasp in admiration and praised him generously.
Although Duan Ling Tian had said that splitting the sword into nine was easy, everyone present was astute, so how could they possibly be unable to discern that those words were just an excuse of Duan Ling Tian’s?
As far as they were concerned, unless Duan Ling Tian lent a hand, then even if they arrived before the door to the Sword Monarch’s Treasure, they would probably be unable to find their way in.
“Hmph!” Right at this moment, Elder Hu who stood in the distance snorted coldly, and then his figure flashed out to be the first to charge towards the barrier formed from the Inscription Formation and kept the sea water out.
Elder Hu’s figure easily merged into it.
In the blink of an eye, he’d vanished before the eyes of Duan Ling Tian and the others.
When she saw this scene, the smile on Han Xue Nai’s face was restrained as a cold light flickered within her eyes. “At the biggest contributor, Big Brother Ling Tian hasn’t even entered yet, but this old goat actually dares to enter the Sword Monarch’s Treasure before him!”
“He better hope that I don’t see him again, otherwise, I’ll surely kill him!” As Han Xue Nai finished speaking, her tone was filled with ruthlessness.
This time, no one felt pity for Elder Hu, as they all felt that Elder Hu had gone slightly too far.
Amongst them included Dong Ming.
Dong Ming looked slightly embarrassedly at Duan Ling Tian. “Brother Ling Tian, I’m sorry… Elder Hu’s temper is like this, I hope you can forgive him. How about this? Since Elder Hu was the first to enter, then for the sake of fairness, I’ll be the last to enter amongst the rest of us. How about it?”
“I advise you to keep your distance from him… If he encounters any treasure within the Sword Monarch’s Treasure, a person like this would perhaps be the first to kill you and keep all the treasures for himself.” Duan Ling Tian had an indifferent expression.
As far as he was concerned, this old fellow was going to die sooner or later.
He’d endured over and over again simply because he had the intention of making the old man open a path for him.
Although that old man was extremely hateful, needless today, his strength was not bad and would provided an extremely great use in the Sword Monarch’s Treasure.
Dong Ming sighed and didn’t say anything further.
“Brother Ling Tian, Young Miss Xue Nai, both of you please go ahead.” Meanwhile, the others all moved aside and then looked towards Duan Ling Tian and Han Xue Nai as they spoke.
“Xue Nai, let’s go in.” Duan Ling Tian nodded to Xue Nai, and then they brought along the little gold mouse and two little pythons to fly towards the semi-translucent barrier at the door.
During this process, the Origin Energy on Han Xue Nai’s body skyrocketed to envelop Duan Ling Tian within it as well, and then she protected Duan Ling Tian to pass through the barrier and enter into the Sword Monarch’s Treasure.
Before Han Xue Nai entered the door, she didn’t forget to instruct the Three-Eyed Flame Tiger. “Big Guy, obediently wait here for us to come out… If we don’t see you when we come out, then I’ll surely freeze you into a popsicle once more!”
Along with Han Xue Nai’s figure being concealed behind the barrier, the body of the Three-Eyed Flame Tiger that waited outside trembled for no reason.
