Chapter 626: Everyone Has Come Out
Translator: KurazyTolanzuraytor Editor: Jay
The little gold mouse transformed into a gold bolt of lightning that flashed out to descend onto Duan Ling Tian’s shoulder.
“Little Gold, you’ve finally come out… How was it? How many of the six tests did you pass?” Duan Ling Tian looked at the little gold mouse and smiled as he asked.
When he heard Xue Nai speak of her encounter in the third level, Duan Ling Tian realized that everyone who entered the third level faced the same tests.
Of course, the last test, the Mirror Puppet, was slightly different.
Everyone faced their own Mirror Puppet.
“Two.” The little gold mouse’s head drooped and she spoke slightly dispiritedly.
“You only passed through two tests? Which two?” Duan Ling Tian was stunned.
“The 100 Origin Shadowpuppets and the Earth Puppet… I failed in all the rest.” The little gold mouse spoke with dejection.
But her childish voice instead didn’t emphasize her current feelings in the slightest.
“Looks like my results are still not bad…” Han Xue Nai walked to Duan Ling Tian’s side before stretching out her hand to stroke the little gold mouse’s smooth back, and she smiled.
She found equilibrium from the little gold mouse.
The little gold mouse closed her eyes comfortably, and she enjoyed Xue Nai’s touch.
She didn’t reject Han Xue Nai in the slightest, and it was perhaps because Han Xue Nai had once helped her take revenge.
Although Han Xue Nai didn’t directly kill them, all the higher-ups of the Eastern Mulberry Empire’s Tang Clan were sealed within ice by Han Xue Nai, allowing the little gold mouse to have the chance to kill them.
The little gold mouse possessed intelligence that wasn’t inferior to humans, so she naturally knew that if it wasn’t for Han Xue Nai, it would be impossible for her to take revenge.
Presently, when he saw Duan Ling Tian, Han Xue Nai, and the little gold mouse chatting cheerfully, the nearby Dong Ming was dumbstruck.
“A… A mouse… That can speak… This… It… It’s a Void Interpretation Stage demon beast?” Dong Ming felt that the surprise he’d felt in his entire lifetime wasn’t as much as his shock today.
“Exactly what sort of people and demon beasts are by the side of this Brother Ling Tian?” Dong Ming felt his scalp go numb.
“Big Brother Ling Tian.” The little gold mouse blinked her jade green eyes, and she stared at Duan Ling Tian as she asked. “How many tests did you pass?”
Duan Ling Tian looked at the little gold mouse yet didn’t reply directly, and he instead said via voice transmission, “All of them.”
All of them?
Shock instantly emerged within the depths of the little gold mouse’s eyes.
This scene just happened to be noticed by Han Xue Nai, and she sent a voice transmission into Duan Ling Tian’s ears. “Big Brother Ling Tian, you’re being unfair. You only told Little Gold, but not me!”
“You little girl, don’t you know already?” Duan Ling Tian replied with a bitter smile.
The reason he didn’t speak directly and instead chose to send a voice transmission wasn’t because he didn’t want to tell Xue Nai, but it was instead because he was afraid of shocking the nearby Dong Ming.
Duan Ling Tian instead didn’t know that Dong Ming had already shocked successively by the three of them, and even if he was shocked again, he wouldn’t feel much.
Because he was already numbed.
No matter how unbelievable something that appeared on Duan Ling Tian is, he wouldn’t be surprised.
“How will I know if you don’t tell me?” Han Xue Nai’s voice transmission contained slight grievance when she heard Duan Ling Tian, and she even revealed a delicate and touching expression and eyes that held tears that were about to drop down.
Presently, she was simply like another person when compared with her previous self that slaughtered resolutely.
Duan Ling Tian shook his head and slightly helplessly sent a voice transmission. “Alright, I’ll tell you. I passed all the tests… When you looked at me like that earlier, didn’t you already guess it?”
“I only felt that Big Brother Ling Tian might have passed all the tests… I wasn’t completely sure.” As Han Xue Nai finished her voice transmission, her delicate and touching expression had vanished, and her tone was filled with astonishment. “Big Brother Ling Tian, how did you pass the first and final test?”
When faced with the curious Han Xue Nai, Duan Ling Tian didn’t conceal anything and spoke all what he’d experienced.
Of course, he left out the things related to the memories of the Rebirth Martial Emperor.
“The grade one spirit sword was actually an incomplete sword that hadn’t taken form? Moreover, it was within a pile of scrap around the cavern?” After Han Xue Nai heard of Duan Ling Tian’s experience in the first test, she couldn’t help but grumble. “That Martial Monarch is really a cheater!” Who would know that a grade one spirit sword is an inconspicuous and hideous incomplete sword? Most importantly, it was even concealed in a pile of scraps!”
Duan Ling Tian shook his head and laughed when he heard Han Xue Nai’s grumbling.
The first test was a test of skill and perhaps only high grade Weapons Craftsmen were able to locate that inconspicuous grade one spirit sword.
“Big Brother Ling Tian, how did you find that grade one spirit sword?” Han Xue Nai couldn’t help but ask curiously.
“I’m a Weapons Craftsman.” Duan Ling Tian’s reply was simply and direct.
“So Big Brother Ling Tian is a Weapons Craftsman… No wonder.” Han Xue Nai came to a sudden understanding. “A Weapons Craftsman has a unique gaze towards spirit weapons… I heard that many Weapons Craftsmen are even able to rely on a spirit weapons outward appearance to discern its grade.”
“Yes.” Duan Ling Tian nodded.
A Weapons Craftsman was an art of skill, the more spirit weapons one refined, one’s sense and discerning ability towards spirit weapons would naturally be more extraordinary.
“Then what about the last test?” Han Xue Nai asked. “I was completely helpless against my Mirror Puppet… In the end, whether I fought it to a tie or because the time was up, I was stopped by the Inscription Formation. Otherwise, it would sooner or later be able to defeat me.”
“Big Brother Ling Tian, how did you deal with your Mirror Puppet?” Han Xue Nai blinked her beautiful eyes as she looked curiously at Duan Ling Tian.
Duan Ling Tian smiled. “Xue Nai, I was actually unable to deal with it as well, I just lead it to…”
Subsequently, Duan Ling Tian the specific process of his final test.
“What? That works too?” Han Xue Nai’s face froze and spoke with slight vexation. “Why didn’t I think of that? So it turns out that the final test can be so simple.”
“Big Brother Ling Tian, you’re too smart.” Han Xue Nai looked at Duan Ling Tian with an expression of admiration.
At this moment, at the same time that Duan Ling Tian felt light headed, he couldn’t help but be slightly ashamed.
After all, it wasn’t he who had found the method.
That was the method within the memories of the Rebirth Martial Emperor, whereas he’d only used another person’s method.
“Big Brother Ling Tian, in this way, you’ve obtained the Martial Monarch’s inheritance?” Han Xue Nai had an extra sense of indescribable excitement as she sent a voice transmission to Duan Ling Tian.
A Martial Monarch’s inheritance, even she was rather interested in it as well.
Duan Ling Tian was just about to speak about the Martial Monarch’s inheritance with Han Xue Nai when two enormous bangs suddenly sounded out and interrupted him.
The two enormous bangs resounded out, and at a place attainable by Duan Ling Tian’s gaze, on another side of the far away cavern wall, another two holes had appeared.
Within the hold, two doors slowly rose up.
At the same time.
A black and a white bolt of lightning flew out from the stone doors, and their destination pointed straight at Duan Ling Tian.
After a short moment, a black and a white little python appeared on Duan Ling Tian’s shoulder.
“Hiss hiss~” They excitedly flicked their tongues as they licked Duan Ling Tian’s face.
“Big Brother Ling Tian, looks like Little Black and Little White are still more intimate with you… They looked for you as soon as they came out.” Han Xue Nai stood nearby and spoke with a slightly sour tone.
“Hiss hiss~” After the two little pythons heard Han Xue Nai, they considerately left Duan Ling Tian to flash onto Han Xue Nai’s shoulder and flicked their tongues to console her.
Han Xue Nai revealed a satisfied smile.
Duan Ling Tian lightly smiled.
In terms of age, this little girl is a little over 20 at any rate.
But being able to maintain childlike innocence is indeed difficult to come by.
“Little Black, Little White, how many tests did both of you pass?” Duan Ling Tian looked at the two little pythons and asked curiously.
“Squeak squeak~” Meanwhile, the little gold mouse looked at the two little pythons with interest, and her jade green eyes obviously contained a perturbed expression.
Obviously, she was worried that the results of the two little pythons would surpass her.
When she found out that the two little pythons were similar to her and had only passed two tests, the little gold mouse was jubilant.
“Little Black and Little White passed the 100 Origin Shadowpuppet and Earth Puppet tests… But, to Little Gold, Little Black, and Little White, the other four tests are indeed slightly difficult.” Duan Ling Tian thought in his heart.
“It’s good that both of you are safe… As for the test, it doesn’t matter if you passed or not.” Duan Ling Tian looked at the two little pythons and consoled them.
Duan Ling Tian, who’d experienced the six tests of the third level, knew deeply that there was a certain level of lethal danger in the three tests of strength, and being able to survive was undoubtedly very fortunate.
“Hiss hiss~” After Duan Ling Tian’s consoling, the originally dispirited little pythons once again became cheerful.
“Big Brother Ling Tian, you haven’t told me about the Martial Monarch’s inheritance you obtained.” Han Xue Nai’s voice transmission once again sounded out within Duan Ling Tian’s ears.
Right when Duan Ling Tian intended to answer Han Xue Nai.
History repeated itself.
An enormous bang sounded out to interrupt Duan Ling Tian once more.
The distance cavern wall split open with a bang, causing bits of rocks to fall down, and a door that slowly rose appeared within.
Under Duan Ling Tian, Han Xue Nai, and Dong Ming’s concentrated gazes, an azure and aged figure walked out from within the door.
“Elder Hu!” The azure clothed old man had just come out when Dong Ming had already exclaimed, and his eyes were filled with a burning expression of yearning.
The person that had come out now was precisely the ‘expert’ that Dong Ming had invited for the Sword Monarch’s Treasure, and he’d come to an agreement with the old man that both of them would equally share everything they obtained in the Sword Monarch’s Treasure.
Elder Hu walked out and glanced indifferently at Dong Ming before soaring into the sky and intending to leave the Sword Monarch’s Treasure.
“Elder Hu!” Dong Ming who was originally anticipating that Elder Hu would equally share his gains with him went grim, and Dong Ming hurriedly soared into the sky to stop Elder Hu.
“If you don’t want to die, then f**k off right now!” Elder Hu glared angrily at Dong Ming as he spoke with a grim voice.
“Elder Hu… Have you forgotten our agreement?” Dong Ming asked with a low voice.
“Agreement? What agreement?” Elder Hu grunted coldly.
“Elder Hu, you said that after we enter the Sword Monarch’s Treasure, then no matter what we obtained, we had to share it equally… Could it be that I’m wrong?” Dong Ming asked once more.
