Chapter 630: Void Transformation Stage Expert?
Translator: KurazyTolanzuraytor Editor: Jay
I’m surnamed Duan.
A short phrase from Duan Ling Tian had caused the expression of the Treasure Gathering Pavilion’s attendant to be covered in shock.
He still remembered the orders of their Pavilion Master a few months ago: If a person surnamed Duan come looking for me, then you must use the most respectful etiquette to invite him into the Treasure Gathering Pavilion, and I’ll surely heavily punish anyone that’s neglectful towards this distinguished guest!
“Guest, please enter.” When he thought up to here, the attendant broke out in cold sweat before lowering his head and gesturing in a respectful and reverent manner to greet Duan Ling Tian and Han Xue Nai into the Treasure Gathering Pavilion, whereas, the group of people outside the Treasure Gathering Pavilion were instead completely dumbstruck.
“Who exactly are they? They actually made the Treasure Gathering Pavilion’s attendant treat them with such respectful and reverent conduct.”
“According to the current situation, their identity is extraordinary.”
“Rubbish! If their identities were simple, then would they be able to make the Treasure Gathering Pavilion’s attendant treat them like that? If it’s according to me, it’s even possible that they have a deep relationship with the Pavilion Master of our Milky Way City’s Treasure Gathering Pavilion.”
“If it’s really like this, that fellow would really be a fool to have offended an existence like this.”
The crowd of people that were in discussion unconsciously shot their gazes at the corpse of the man that lay on the ground.
As for Duan Ling Tian, he didn’t pay any attention to the bustling scene behind him.
Currently, he and Han Xue Nai had directly entered the Treasure Gathering Pavilion to go see the Pavilion Master, Xian Ying, under the lead of the attendant.
“Brother Ling Tian.” When he saw Duan Ling Tian once again, Xian Ying seemed to be extremely happy.
“Pavilion Master Xian.” Duan Ling Tian lightly smiled in reply before introducing Han Xue Nai who was by his side and Xiang Ying.
“Young Miss Xue Nai.” Xiang Ying nodded with a light smile to Han Xue Nai before disregarding her and looked at Duan Ling Tian before he sighed. “Brother Ling Tian, you’ve probably come this time for the sake of that Ageless Root, right? I’m truly sorry, up until now, although I’ve used my entire network of relationships, I’ve been unable to obtain any news related to that Ageless Root.”
Duan Ling Tian wasn’t surprised that Xiang Ying knew the reason for his arrival.
But when he found out of the outcome, he couldn’t help but be slightly disappointed.
“It’s alright, I’ll think of another way.” Duan Ling Tian shook his head, and he squeezed out a trace of a smile on his face with difficulty.
“Don’t worry Brother Ling Tian, I’ll try my best to continue searching for the Ageless Root.” Xiang Ying pledged sincerely.
“Then I’ll thank Pavilion Master Xiang in advance.” Duan Ling Tian nodded, and then he said, “Since there’s no news of the Ageless Root, then I and Xue Nai will leave first… Pavilion Master Xiang, farewell.”
After he bid his farewells to Xiang Ying, Duan Ling Tian brought along Han Xue Nai to leave the Treasure Gathering Pavilion.
When they walked out of the entrance, Duan Ling Tian noticed the numerous respectful gazes that descended onto him, and it was even to the extent that all along his way, discussions about him had spread everywhere.
“This young man supposedly had a deep relationship with the Pavilion Master of our Milky Way City’s Treasure Gathering Pavilion… Even the attendants of the Treasure Gathering Pavilion were extremely respectful to him.”
“He wouldn’t be an illegitimate son of the Pavilion Master, right?”
“Even though the Pavilion Master is renowned in our Darkhan Dynasty, he ought to be unable to give life to such an outstanding son… Perhaps all of you don’t know, this young man is so young, yet he’s already at the fourth level of the Void Initiation Stage.”
“It can’t be, right? He’s a fourth level Void Initiation Stage martial artist?”
“Yes. He’d fought for a short moment outside the Treasure Gathering Pavilion earlier, and merely a single finger strike of his had killed the seventh level Void Prying Stage martial artist that attacked him for no reason.”
Waves of intense discussions clearly entered into Duan Ling Tian’s ears.
Duan Ling Tian paid no attention to this, and he directly soared into the sky to return to the sky above Milky Way City with Han Xue Nai before returning to the area in the sky that the Three-Eyed Flame Tiger was.
But when Duan Ling Tian arrived there, he couldn’t help but be stunned when he saw the Three-Eyed Flame Tiger.
Presently, the Three-Eyed Flame Tiger stood in the distant sky, and its enormous body was trembling intensely as if it was suffering from some sort of pressure.
Not only that, Duan Ling Tian who had a discerning gaze noticed that slight terror seemed to be mixed within the depths of the Three-Eyed Flame Tiger’s eyes.
That was fear that came from its bones, fear that came from the depths of its soul.
“Squeak squeak~” Suddenly the little gold mouse that lay upside down on Duan Ling Tian’s shoulder cried out in alarm, and its fluffy and chubby body slightly trembled.
It was as if she’d sensed something terrifying.
“Hiss hiss~” Meanwhile, the two little pythons that were coiled on Han Xue Nai’s wrist woke up successively from their cultivation, and they swiftly flickered their tongues as their sharp eyes flickered with a slightly unusual sheen.
“What’s going on?” Duan Ling Tian’s face went slightly grim as he looked around in panic with the intention of finding the reason that such unusual changed occurred on these demon beasts.
But no matter how he searched and even if his Spiritual Force spread out, he came back empty handed in the end.
If he didn’t see the unusual changes in these demon beasts with his own two eyes, he would perhaps really think that there was no person or demon beast existing in the surroundings…
“Even my Spiritual Force is unable to detect anything… It can be seen from this that the person or demon beast’s cultivation is at least at the Void Interpretation Stage or above!” Duan Ling Tian was extremely shocked in his heart, and then he took a deep breath as terror filled his eyes.
If the person or demon beast was an existence at the Void Interpretation Stage or above, then what he was afraid of the most was the demon beast or person was an enemy and was stronger than Han Xue Nai.
“Xue Nai, you’ve noticed as well?” Meanwhile, Duan Ling Tian noticed that Han Xue Nai’s expression had twitched, and her eyes revealed an indescribable flowing light, and he couldn’t refrain from asking.
Han Xue Nai nodded.
“Xue Nai, could it be that this person or demon beast is stronger than you?” Han Xue Nai’s expression that was unsightly to the extreme caused Duan Ling Tian’s heart to jerk, and he realized that the matter wasn’t so simple.
That person’s strength could even possibly have surpassed Xue Nai.
The facts proved that Duan Ling Tian had guessed correctly.
Han Xue Nai nodded once more.
“Who exactly is it?” Duan Ling Tian quickly noticed that Han Xue Nai’s gaze was currently looking high in the sky above the Three-Eyed Flame Tiger…
Instantly, Duan Ling Tian looked over as well.
High above in the sky above the Three-Eyed Flame Tiger, the clouds and mist dispersed along with the wind, and an emaciated figure appeared before Duan Ling Tian’s eyes.
The emaciated figure stood there like a dry corpse, and it caused one to feel a chill run down one’s spine.
“What a terrifying figure!” Duan Ling Tian noticed that his Spiritual Force that stretched out and intended to detect the emaciated figure’s cultivation hadn’t even approached the surroundings of the figure before being struck to dispersal by a shapeless force.
There seemed to be something similar to a ‘field’ in a large area surrounding the emaciated figure, and it completely withstood Duan Ling Tian’s Spiritual Force.
“She…” In next to no time, Duan Ling Tian’s clearly saw the appearance of the emaciated figure.
This was an old lady in azure clothes, her emaciated face carrying a calm expression, her pair of eyes dim and listless, and her mood couldn’t be discerned from her appearance.
She stood there like an ancient statue.
Duan Ling Tian gasped. “This person is probably not just simply a Void Interpretation Stage martial artist… Her strength is even possibly at the Void Transformation Stage!”
Although Duan Ling Tian’s Spiritual Force was unable to approach the azure clothed old lady.
He’d inherited the lifetime world of memories and experience of the Rebirth Martial Emperor at any rate, and he’d sensed traces of an aura that only existences at the Void Transformation Stage or above would possess on the old lady.
The aura was faint yet Duan Ling Tian still sensed it.
This feeling was very strange and it came from the lifetime of experience of the Rebirth Martial Emperor.
Of course, Duan Ling Tian didn’t dare fully confirm it.
“Xue Nai, look for an opportunity and leave first.” Duan Ling Tian took a deep breath before sending a voice transmission to Han Xue Nai.
Presently, he didn’t know why this old lady would appear here, and what she desired… But in preparation for the worst, he still hoped that Han Xue Nai could leave first.
If this old lady really was an existence at the Void Transformation Stage or above and had hostility towards them, then he and Han Xue Nai would die for sure.
An expert at the Void Transformation Stage or above was far from something a Void Interpretation Stage martial artist could compare to.
Even though Han Xue Nai was strong, but she still nothing before a Void Transformation Stage expert.
As a person that had fused with the memories of the Rebirth Martial Emperor’s two lifetimes, Duan Ling Tian deeply knew this.
But even then, he still hoped that he would be able to strive for a slim chance of survival for Han Xue Nai.
“Big Brother Ling Tian, what’re you talking about?” Meanwhile, Han Xue Nai returned to her senses, and she couldn’t help but be stunned when she heard Duan Ling Tian.
“Xue Nai, we don’t know her objectives right now… But she’s extremely dangerous. So you leave first and find a remote place to hide… I’ll see if I can draw her away,” said Duan Ling Tian.
Now Han Xue Nai understood what was going on.
“Big Brother Ling Tian.” Han Xue Nia smiled bitterly. “She doesn’t have any hostility towards us, you don’t have to be as if you’re facing a great enemy.”
Duan Ling Tian’s strained nerves trembled when he heard Han Xue Nai, and he had a puzzled expression. “Xue Nai, what do you mean by this?”
“Big Brother Ling Tian, she’s the Qing Nu that I’ve mentioned before to you,” said Han Xue Nai.
“Qing Nu? She’s Qing Nu?” Duan Ling Tian’s strained nerves instantly eased up, and he had an astonished expression.
The name Qing Nu wasn’t unfamiliar to him in the slightest.
All those years ago, Han Xue Nai had once mentioned this name several times.
Qing Nu was the person by Han Xue Nai’s side. She could be considered to be the ‘umbrella’ that followed by Han Xue Nai’s side, and her strength was only stronger than Han Xue Nai.
Moreover, according to Han Xue Nai, Qing Nu played a huge role in the current achievements of the two little pythons.
“So she’s Qing Nu…” Duan Ling Tian sighed and he laughed bitterly as he looked at Han Xue Nai. “Then why did you have that expression earlier?”
Han Xue Nai’s earlier expression was precisely the reason why Duan Ling Tian was alarmed and nervous earlier.
As she looked at the distance old lady, Qing Nu, Han Xue Nai’s head drooped as she spoke dispiritedly. “Big Brother Ling Tian, Qing Nu’s arrival means that I can’t continue staying at the Darkhan Dynasty… I have to go home.”
Duan Ling Tian came to a sudden understanding. “So it was because of this.”
“If you want to continued playing outside, can’t you discuss it with her?” Duan Ling Tian suggested.
Unexpectedly, Han Xue Nai shook her head instead and said with slight helplessness, “It isn’t so simple… Big Brother Ling Tian, since Qing Nu has come, then I ought to leave as well. I hope that when I see Big Brother Ling Tian next, Big Brother Ling Tian has already become famous in the Foreign Lands.”
