Chapter 628: Fourth Level of the Void Initiation Stage
Translator: KurazyTolanzuraytor Editor: Jay
Because when they were heading to the location of the Sword Monarch’s Treasure, the Three-Eyed Flame Tiger was following behind the jade sword that had a speed that couldn’t be considered to be fast, it had intentionally slowed down its speed greatly.
This time, it didn’t have to follow behind the jade sword, so the Three-Eyed Flame Tiger merely spent half a month of time to send Duan Ling Tian’s group of three to the Darkstone Empire.
The Three-Eyed Flame Tiger dashed into the sky as if it had transformed into an enormous ball of flaming clouds, and it swept straight through, leaving behind a crimson mist in the sky that was dazzling and beautiful.
On the back of the Three-Eyed Flame Tiger that was vast like a football field, the yellow clothed young girl stood at the back of its head with two little pythons coiled on her wrist.
The two little pythons didn’t make any movement, and they were possibly sleeping or cultivating.
Nearby, a robust middle aged man sat cross-legged as he cultivated silently.
There was also a violet clothed young man that sat cross-legged in the distance, and he didn’t move in the slightest, as if he was a sculpture without the slightest trace of life.
The little gold mouse that lay on the violet clothed young man’s shoulder awoke suddenly before slowly standing up and stretching lazily.
After she noticed the violet clothed young man was still cultivating, the little gold mouse’s jade green eyes flickered for a moment before transforming into a gold light that flashed out directly towards the far away yellow clothed young girl.
After a short moment, she arrived on the shoulder of the young girl.
“Big Sister Xue Nai, Big Sister Xue Nai.” The little gold mouse stood on the young girl’s shoulder and lightly rubbed the young girl’s neck that was white like jade, and she seemed to be extremely intimate.
“Little Gold, you’ve awoken.” Han Xue Nai smiled slightly before stretching out her hand to stroke the little gold mouse. “We’ve already returned to the Darkstone Empire… I wonder when Big Brother Ling Tian will awaken.”
“Squeak squeak~” The little gold mouse looked at the violet clothed young man in the distance that cultivated with his eyes closed when she heard this, and her eyes flickered with slight anticipation.
Time silently passed by.
Not long after, the robust middle aged man that sat nearby awoke, and a wave of excitement suffused his face when he looked down at the boundless ground beneath his feet. “Darkstone Empire! I’ve finally returned.”
As a person from around this area of the Darkstone Empire, he was extremely familiar with this area.
“Brother Ling Tian hasn’t awoken yet.” The robust middle aged man was Dong Ming, and he glanced at the violet clothed young man in the distance before looking at the yellow clothed young girl that stood at the back of the Three-Eyed Flame Tiger’s head.
“Young Miss Xue Nai, my home is nearby, so I won’t continue disturbing you and Brother Ling Tian… Please pass my farewells to Brother Ling Tian when he wakes up.” Dong Ming intended to leave.
“Okay.” Han Xue Nai glanced at the distant Duan Ling Tian that hadn’t awoken from his cultivation, and she lightly nodded. “I’ll tell Big Brother Ling Tian once he wakes up.”
“Then I’ll trouble Young Miss Xue Nai with that.” Dong Ming respectfully nodded to Han Xue Nai before glancing at Duan Ling Tian and leaving.
He’d always felt grateful in his heart towards Duan Ling Tian.
Duan Ling Tian had been helping him from the beginning, whereas, at the end, he’d even obtained extremely great good fortune because of Duan Ling Tian.
A grade two spirit sword, everything Elder Hu obtained in the third level of the Sword Monarch’s Treasure, and all of Elder Hu’s wealth had now come into his possession.
If it was in the past, this was something that was difficult to imagine, it was something that he didn’t dare imagine.
Now all this had become reality, and all of this was because of this violet clothed young man.
No matter if he was able to meet this mysterious violet clothed young man again in the future, he would surely remember this favor in his heart for his entire lifetime.
If he had the chance to repay the violet clothed young man, he would surely not hesitate to lay down his life!
A few days later, the Three-Eyed Flame Tiger arrived at the border between the Darkstone Empire and Darkhan Dynasty.
Suddenly, a ball of dazzling white flames suddenly rose explosively on the body of the violet clothed young man that sat cross-legged on the back of the Three-Eyed Flame Tiger, and the white colored flames rose ceaselessly.
In next to no time, the white colored flames had risen to the limit, and at the side of the four ancient horned dragon silhouettes that had appeared above him, another two ancient horned dragon silhouettes had appeared.
“I’ve broken through!” Duan Ling Tian’s figure shook, and his feeling surged extremely as he opened his eyes abruptly and a flowing light that was dazzling like an array of stars flowed within his eyes.
At this moment, if someone looked at Duan Ling Tian’s eyes, they would have noticed that besides a strand of a flowing light flickering in the depths of Duan Ling Tian’s eyes, there was also another two strands of dim lights that were faintly visible.
Of course, the dim lights didn’t exist for a long time, and they were completely extinguished not long after.
A brief flash and nothing more than that.
“Crack crack~” Suddenly, Duan Ling Tian fiercely clenched his fists tightly, causing a wave of the sounds of bones rubbing together to abruptly sound out, and it was clear and pleasing to the ear.
“My strength has become much stronger…” As he felt the strength that was contained within his body, Duan Ling Tian couldn’t help but take a deep breath, and his face was covered in delight.
After he broke through to the fourth level of the Void Initiation Stage, his strength had increased by the strength of two ancient horned dragons in one go.
Such an increase could be considered as the first time Duan Ling Tian had obtained such a great increase in his entire lifetime, and it had set a new record.
“Big Brother Ling Tian!” Right at this moment, Duan Ling Tian heard a childish voice sound out.
A gold light moved right at him to instantly pounce onto Duan Ling Tian’s shoulder to reveal a fluffy and chubby figure.
It was precisely the little gold mouse.
“Little Gold.” Duan Ling Tian stretched out his hand to hold the little gold mouse in his hand, and he lightly smiled. “Did you breakthrough during this period of time?”
“Big Brother Ling Tian, I’ve broken through.” The little gold mouse perked up her head and spoke with slight complacency, and her childish voice combined with this tone caused it so seem slightly peculiar.
“Congratulations, Big Brother Ling Tian.” Meanwhile, a voice that was moving like the voice of an oriole sounded out.
After a short moment, a beautiful figure appeared before Duan Ling Tian’s eyes, and she’s obviously discerned something from Duan Ling Tian, causing her to congratulate him.
“Xue Nai.” The smile on Duan Ling Tian’s face grew wider as he looked at the young girl before him.
“Big Brother Ling Tian, you haven’t told me what was the Sword Monarch’s Inheritance that you obtained…” Han Xue Nai said to Duan Ling Tian.
Her pair of big eyes were now flickering with traces of a sheen of curiosity.
Earlier, Duan Ling Tian was busy cultivating, so although she was curious, she didn’t disturb Duan Ling Tian and refrained from asking.
Now, when she saw Duan Ling Tian had smoothly broken through, her curiosity arose again instantly.
When he heard Han Xue Nai, Duan Ling Tian was stunned before being unable to refrain from shaking his head and smiling.
He never expected that this little girl, Xue Nai, would be so persistent.
But to him, those things weren’t anything that needed to be concealed in front of Xue Nai.
Not to mention that Xue Nai had always been helping him, with Xue Nai’s mysterious and formidable background, Xue Nai might not even be interested in the Martial Monarch’s inheritance he’d obtained, and at most, she was just curious.
“Xue Nai, at that time…” Subsequently, Duan Ling Tian carefully spoke of what happened after he passed all the tests in the third level of the Sword Monarch’s Treasure, and he didn’t conceal anything, including the three profundity Fragments.
“Xue Nai, if you’re interested in any of the three Profundity Fragments, I can give it to you,” said Duan Ling Tian to Han Xue Nai.
Although the Profundity Fragment was exceedingly precious, it was far inferior to the feelings between him and Han Xue Nai in his heart.
If Han Xue Nai needed it, then even if he gave away all three Profundity Fragments, he wouldn’t frown in the slightest.
As the saying goes, when one received drops of favors from another, one ought to repay it with a fountain.
During the trip to the Sword Monarch’s Treasure this time, if it wasn’t for Han Xue Nai helping him all along the way, then it was extremely unlikely that he would be able to obtain one of the ten positions to head to the third level with his cultivation.
Duan Ling Tian knew his own strength with regards to this.
It could be said that everything he obtained in the Sword Monarch’s Treasure was given to him by Han Xue Nai.
If it wasn’t for Han Xue Nai, he’d probably have nothing.
“Big Brother Ling Tian, you should keep it for yourself… You’ll need the Wind Profundity Fragment and Lightning Profundity Fragment in the future. As for the Sword Profundity Fragment, perhaps it will be of use in the future as well.” Han Xue Nai shook her head and refused Duan Ling Tian’s good intentions.
When faced with the temptation of Profundity Fragments, Han Xue Nai’s brows didn’t even twitch.
This caused Duan Ling Tian to be even more shocked in his heart and even more curious about this little girl’s background. “Exactly what background does Xue Nai possess…? Even if it was the Rebirth Martial Emperor of all those years ago, even though it was to the extent of being too excitement, but he would probably be unable to maintain such composure before a Profundity Fragment.”
Of course, since Han Xue Nai didn’t want it, Duan Ling Tian didn’t insist.
It was just like Han Xue Nai had said, the Wind Profundity Fragment and Lightning Profundity Fragment were both Profundity Fragments that he would need in the future.
As for the Sword Profundity Fragment, Duan Ling Tian already had a plan in his heart, he would try his best to start comprehending Sword Force and even Sword Concept when he cultivated the Nine-Tribulations Sword Control Technique.
“I just happen to have a Sword Concept Fragment in my possession… So long as I comprehend Sword Concept, I can comprehend that Sword Concept Fragment and increase the might of my Sword Concept.” Duan Ling Tian still remembered that the Sword Concept Fragment in his possession was precisely obtained at the end of the first level of the Sword Monarch’s Treasure, and it was something he was only able to obtain after relying on Han Xue Nai’s ability.
“Big Brother Ling Tian, we’ve already entered the territory of the Darkhan Dynasty now… I plan to participate in the Dynasty Martial Competition with you, what do you think?” Han Xue Nai blinked her pair of cheeky eyes as she looked at Duan Ling Tian and asked.
The corners of Duan Ling Tian’s mouth twitched when he heard Han Xue Nai.
This little girl Xue Nia wants to participate in the Dynasty Martial Competition?
Wasn’t this clearly bullying others?
Duan Ling Tian could imagine that if this little girl Xue Nai really participated in the Dynasty Martial Competition, there would probably be no one that was a match for her.
An existence at the Void Interpretation Stage that was even stronger than the number one expert of the Darkstone Empire, King Yong, would be able to easily sweep through all the young geniuses in the entire Darkhan Dynasty.
“It’s alright as long as you’re interested.” Duan Ling Tian said, “Presumably, so long as you mention this thought to King Yong, he’d surely impatiently make someone give their position to you.”
This was something that Duan Ling Tian could be sure of.
With Xue Nai’s strength, so long as a monster that was rarely seen in the world like Xue Nai didn’t appear, then with Xue Nai representing the Darkstone Dynasty to participate in the Dynasty Martial Competition, the first rank in the martial competition was in the bag.
“That’s exactly what I was thinking… Once we return to the Capital of the Darkstone Empire, I’ll ask Uncle Red Mole to give me a position.” Han Xue Nai grinned.
