Chapter 631: Slim Chance of Survival
Translator: KurazyTolanzuraytor Editor: Jay
At this moment, Duan Ling Tian could feel that Han Xue Nai’s tone contained helplessness.
But he still nodded seriously and replied to what Han Xue Nai said. “Xue Nai, don’t worry, when we meet again, you’ll surely see a completely new me.”
“Mmm.” Xue Nai nodded, and her depressed expression completely vanished to return to a bright smile.
But she quickly sighed again and looked at Duan Ling Tian while slightly hesitant to speak. “Big Brother Ling Tian, Little Black and Little White…”
Meanwhile, how could Duan Ling Tian not understand what Han Xue Nai meant by this?
His gaze descended onto the two little pythons on Han Xue Nai’s hand, and he was slightly unwilling.
Little Black and Little White had been by his side since they were born, and although they’d left for a few years, their feeling towards him were still extremely deep, whereas, Duan Ling Tian had always taken them to be his loved ones.
“Hiss hiss~” The two little pythons seem to have realized something, and they restlessly flicked their tongues as they ceaselessly swung their tails.
In the next moment, a black and a white bolt of lightning flashed out from Han Xue Nai’s hand to tear through the sky and coil onto Duan Ling Tian’s hand.
“Big Brother, I don’t want to go. I want to follow by your side.”
“Big Brother, I’m not following Big Sister Xue Nai to leave here, I want to follow you. I miss Big Sister Ke Er and Li Fei.”
The voice transmissions of the two little pythons sounded out in Duan Ling Tian’s ears in a timely manner.
At this moment, it caused Duan Ling Tian to feel warm in his heart.
Originally, the two little pythons had left him for many years, and there was a slight shapeless distance between them.
At least, it was like this for Duan Ling Tian.
But now, the actions of the two little pythons had instead caused Duan Ling Tian to feel warmth, and the trace of distance in his heart vanished without a trace.
“Big Sister Xue Nai, I want to stay by Big Brother’s side.”
“Big Sister Xue Nai, I don’t want to leave Big Brother again.”
Han Xue Nai stood in the distance, and her gaze was extremely complicated when she heard the voice transmission of the two little pythons.
During these past few years, although she’d been together with the two little pythons from day until night, the hearts of the two little pythons were obviously not with her.
This caused her to feel both helpless and bitter in her heart.
“Big Brother Ling Tian.” Han Xue Nai looked at Duan Ling Tian and sighed. “Since Little Black and Little White want to stay by your side, then I won’t bring them along this time.”
Right when Duan Ling Tian wanted to say something.
It was as if a gust of wind had blown by.
The azure clothed old lady that was standing in the distance a moment ago had suddenly appeared to stand behind Han Xue Nai, and she looked at Duan Ling Tian as she spoke with a hoarse voice. “These two little fellows are variant Saint Beast descendants…”
“In terms of natural talent, they aren’t the slightest bit inferior to the Jade-eyed Heavenly Mouse on your shoulder.” The azure clothed old lady, Qing Nu, looked at the little gold mouse on Duan Ling Tian’s shoulder as she spoke slowly.
Variant Saint Beast descendant?
Duan Ling Tian looked at Little Black and Little White with an astonished expression.
He was extremely clear of Little Black and Little White’s origins.
They were the children of two fierce beast pythons, so how could they possibly have anything to do with Saint Beasts…?
“Senior, are you mistaken?” When he thought up to here, Duan Ling Tian looked at Qing Nu and asked.
At the same time, he slowly spoke of the origins of the two little fellows.
The offspring of two fierce beast pythons?
Qing Nu hadn’t said anything yet Han Xue Nai had already exclaimed in shock. “Big Brother Ling Tian, you said that Little Black and Little White are the children of two ordinary fierce beasts?”
“Yes.” Duan Ling Tian nodded. “At that time, it was I who brought the two of them that hadn’t hatched back home, and their appearance after they were born had once caused me to be puzzled for a time… Because their appearance wasn’t similar to their mother, nor was it similar to their father.”
“This isn’t difficult to understand.” Qing Nu spoke once more, and her voice was still hoarse as before.
Instantly, Han Xue Nai and Duan Ling Tian’s gaze were successfully drawn over by Qing Nu.
Qing Nu continued. “The so-called variant Saint Beast descendant is different from an ordinary Saint Beast descendant. An ordinary Saint Beast’s descendant is like this Jade-eyed Heavenly Mouse, and it’s able to inherit the bloodline of the Jade-eyed Heavenly Mouse Clan from its mother, whereas, a variant Saint Beast descendent is rarely inherited via bloodline, and it’s more of a random chance. Just like these two little fellows.”
When he heard Qing Nu’s words, Duan Ling Tian seemed as if he was lost in thought.
These things weren’t within the memories of the Rebirth Martial Emperor.
“If you want to say something then speak frankly.” In the end, Duan Ling Tian returned to his senses and looked at Qing Nu.
He was able to perceive that Qing Nu had intentionally said those words, and she was obviously foreshadowing for something.
Qing Nu’s eyes that were dim and listless abruptly lit up, and then she glanced deeply at Duan Ling Tian and said, “No matter if it is a variant Saint Beast descendant or an ordinary Saint Beast descendant, their latent potential is extremely enormous… For the sake of their own good, you ought to give them a better future and allow them to be able to become a Demon Emperor in the shortest time possible.”
“Hiss hiss~” As soon as Qing Nu finished speaking, the two little pythons that coiled on Duan Ling Tian’s hand started becoming restless, and they ceaselessly flicked their tongue.
Obviously, they were unhappy after hearing what Qing Nu said.
“Hmph! Haven’t you said so much all for the sake of wanting us to leave with you? I’m not going to leave with you… I want to follow Big Brother Ling Tian.” The little gold mouse stood on Duan Ling Tian’s shoulder as she bared her fang and brandished her claws.
“Little Fellow, you’re really intelligent… Your ability to speak at the Void Initiation Stage has completely broken the convention towards demon beasts. Looks like I’ve underestimated you.” Qing Nu looked at the little gold mouse with an astonished expression, and she was obviously shocked by the little gold mouse suddenly speaking out.
“Squeak squeak~” The little gold mouse raised her head complacently and cried out twice when she heard Qing Nu.
At the same time, the little gold mouse looked at the two little pythons. “Two dummies that don’t know how to speak, are the two of you going to follow Big Brother Ling Tian like before or continue to follow Big Sister Xue Nai and this old hag?”
The little gold mouse’s words caused the corners of Duan Ling Tian’s mouth to be unable to refrain from twitching.
Little Gold called this expert that seemed to be at the Void Transformation Stage or above as an old hag?
If it was another existence like this, Duan Ling Tian’s heart would be burning with anxiety since long ago.
But now, he was instead able to maintain his composure.
After all, the existence before him that seemed to be at the Void Transformation Stage or above was someone by Xue Nai’s side.
He believed that Xue Nai wouldn’t allow her to do anything.
In next to no time, Duan Ling Tian noticed that Qing Nu wasn’t even angry in the slightest bit towards the little gold mouse’s disrespectful words, and she had a calm expression that was calm like an ancient well.
Perhaps, in the eyes of Qing Nu, the little gold mouse was only a child and children said what they like, so there was no need for her to fuss about it with the little gold mouse.
“Hiss hiss~” The little gold mouse’s words didn’t infuriate Qing Nu, yet it had infuriated the two little pythons, causing them to glare angrily at her.
In next to no time, they clearly stated their stand, they would follow their Big Brother Ling Tian.
“Of course, it’s fine if you want to forcefully keep them by your side.” Qing Nu added.
Duan Ling Tian glanced indifferently at Qing Nu. “I wonder what the better future you speak of is.”
Qing Nu didn’t hesitate to say directly, “Let go, allow them to return to the wild… A demon beast can only stimulate all its potential in the most adverse conditions and overcome their former selves!”
“With their natural talent, so long as they experience sufficient tempering, then even transforming into a real Saint Beast isn’t impossible.”
Transform into a real Saint Beast?
Duan Ling Tian’s heard trembled.
Although he didn’t know what a Saint Beast that Qing Nu spoke of was as the memories of the Rebirth Martial Emperor had no records of it, since the Jade-eyed Heavenly Mouse was only a Saint Beast descendent, the formidability of a Saint Beast was obvious.
A Saint Beast descendant was a Demon Emperor when matured to the limit.
Then what about Saint Beasts?
It was unimaginable!
“You have a way to help them?” Duan Ling Tian looked at Qing Nu and asked in a low voice.
Although he was unwilling to let the three little fellows leave, if the three little fellows were able to obtain a better future, then he would absolutely not demand that the three little fellows stayed by his side.
He’s taken the three little fellows to be his family, and it was no different than a father’s care to his sons.
It was all for the sake of their own good.
“I know of a place that’s suitable for them… But the time needed is slightly long.” Qing Nu said, “At least seven or eight years, and it could be over 10 or even 20 years.”
Seven or eight years?
Over 10 or 20 years?
Duan Ling Tian’s face had a slightly shocked expression as he never imagined that it would be so long.
“Qing Nu.” Han Xue Nai who’d never spoken since the beginning had finally spoke, and her expression was extremely unsightly. “You want to send Little Gold, Little Black, and Little White to that place? You’re mad!” As she finished speaking, Han Xue Nai was like a mother wolf that was protecting her pups. “They’re still small, they’re only children!”
Duan Ling Tian was stunned.
After knowing Xue Nai for so long, it was still the first time he’d seen Xue Nai lose her composure like this.
He could guess that the place with adverse conditions that Qing Nu spoke of was an extremely terrifying place.
At least, even Han Xue Nai who was a Void Interpretation Stage martial artist couldn’t maintain her composure when speaking about that place.
“Young Miss.” Qing Nu sighed. “Even though they’re young, they possess extraordinary bloodlines that are far from something an ordinary demon beast can compare to… You ought to know that if they’re able to come out from that place, they’ll surely be able to obtain an exceedingly great benefit that’s of profound and lasting effect.”
Han Xue Nai went silent for a moment when she heard this.
She naturally knew what Qing Nu said was true.
Not to mention anyone elder, just Qing Nu was an existence that had once come out from that place.
Presently, Qing Nu’s cultivation had long ago surpassed the limit that her natural talent could attain, and it could be said that Qing Nu had precisely been changed by that place.
That place was Hell to over 90% of the demon beasts that entered it, but to other less than 10%, it was Heaven.
Heaven and Hell, a struggle of life and death is what gave birth to experts.
“Xue Nai, is that place really so good?” Duan Ling Tian looked at Han Xue Nai and asked.
“Big Brother Ling Tian.” Han Xue Nai laughed bitterly. “I can only say that the demon beasts that enter that place have a slim chance of survival, whereas, those that survive are existences with extraordinary strength and natural talent that was at the absolute limit.”
“That place is indeed the best touchstone for demon beasts… But the dangers within it can’t be underestimated.” Han Xue Nai finished in a single breath.
