Chapter 633: Pressure
Translator: KurazyTolanzuraytor Editor: Jay
“I wonder how Ke Er and Little Fei are now… But since they’ve joined that power of the Foreign Lands and are highly regarded by the higher-ups of that power, I presume their cultivations have already advanced by leaps and bounds.”
“Perhaps, their strengths now have already far surpassed me.” Unknowingly, Duan Ling Tian had thought about his two fiancés.
In the blink of an eye, he’d already not seen his two fiancés for many years, and he rather missed them in his heart.
“Ke Er, Little Fei… Wait for me, I’ll come look for both of you soon.” Duan Ling Tian resolved in his heart.
At the same time, Duan Ling Tian seemed as if he’d suddenly been jabbed with a stimulant, and he shuddered as he instantly sat up on the bed before closing his eyes and starting to cultivate while holding a mid grade Origin Stone and a Wind Concept Fragment in his hand.
Nine Dragons War Sovereign Technique, Earth Dragon Form!
In Duan Ling Tian’s body, his vast Origin Energy surged to fill the meridians all over his body before finally converging together and gushing into his Dantian.
“No matter what, I must become eminent in the Dynasty Martial Competition and obtain the qualification to participate in the Martial Competition of the Ten Dynasties… I’ll only be able to join a formidable power of the Foreign Lands by becoming eminent in the Martial Competition of the Ten Dynasties!
“Only by joining a formidable power of the Foreign Lands would I be able to have a trump card to protect myself in the Foreign Lands… With my current strength, if I were to walk out in the Foreign Lands by myself, I’m afraid I wouldn’t be able to go far before being killed.”
“Only by walking out in the Foreign Lands would I be able to go look for Ke Er and Little Fei, and only then would I be able to withdraw the great treasure that the Rebirth Martial Emperor left behind during his second lifetime.”
Duan Ling Tian’s thoughts spun as he drew a flawless blueprint for his future, and all of this was the motivation that urged him to ceaselessly move forward.
After he returned from the Sword Monarch’s Treasure, Duan Ling Tian stayed in his courtyard and cultivated.
Until two months later.
On the bed in his room, the expression of Duan Ling Tian who sat cross-legged on his bed instantly became strained, and it seemed as if he’d encountered something.
At the same time, the Origin Energy in his body gushed out and seemed like raging waves.
The raging waves swept out to charge towards the final bottleneck from the fourth level of the Void Initiation Stage to the fifth level of the Void Initiation Stage.
A light bang sounded out, and Duan Ling Tian’s Origin Energy smoothly charged through the bottleneck, allowing his Origin Energy to undergo a transformation along with this.
“Fifth level of the Void Initiation Stage!” Duan Ling Tian abruptly opened his eyes, and he had a slightly excited expression.
His cultivation had finally smoothly broken through to the fifth level of the Void Initiation Stage!
If someone were to find out that Duan Ling Tian had broken through to the fourth level of the Void Initiation Stage three months ago, yet had broken through to the fifth level of the Void Initiation Stage now, and he’d never consumed a spirit fruit, their jaws would probably be shocked off.
Duan Ling Tian instead didn’t feel surprised.
“With my natural talent that has transformed to the highest possible limit after the 10,000 Year Stalactite Milk, coupled with the assistance of the Origin Stones, spending three months of time to advance from the fourth level of the Void Initiation Stage to the fifth level of the Void Initiation Stage isn’t anything great.” Duan Ling Tian thought to himself.
“Only another six months remain from now until the Dynasty Martial Competition begins… If nothing unexpected happens, then I ought to be able to break through to the sixth level of the Void Initiation Stage in six months, yet wanting to break through to the seventh level of the Void Initiation Stage is practically impossible!” This was something that Duan Ling Tian could be sure of.
Although his natural talent was strong, and he possessed many Origin Stones, yet wanting to break through to the seventh level of the Void Initiation Stage in such a short amount of time is practically impossible.
“The sixth level of the Void Initiation Stage would perhaps be able to crush Mo Xuan and dominate the group of young geniuses from the Darkstone Empire, but the young genius of an Empire is nothing in the Darkhan Dynasty’s Dynasty Martial Competition!
“Not to mention besides the Darkstone Empire, there are young geniuses from another few tens of Empires that will come… Even the outstanding young geniuses of the Darkhan Dynasty would probably possess many existences at the seventh level of the Void Initiation Stage or above.” For a time, Duan Ling Tian felt an extremely great pressure press down onto him.
“It’s difficult to become eminent in the Dynasty Martial Competition with a cultivation at the sixth level of the Void Initiation Stage… If it’s the seventh level of the Void Initiation Stage, then I’ll probably still have a chance.” Duan Ling Tian thought in his heart as his eyes flickered. “Wanting to break through to the seventh level of the Void Initiation Stage in another half a year is extremely difficult, but it isn’t impossible.” Duan Ling Tian’s thoughts spun. “There are two methods. The first, find the Ageless Root and refine the Rebirth Pill. The second, obtain the spirit fruits used by Void Initiation Stage martial artist, and it can’t be a Spirit Void Fruit.”
Duan Ling Tian had consumed the Spirit Void Fruit one in the past, and if he were to consume it again, its medicinal effect would be reduced greatly and not be of great help to him.
“Ageless Root… I’m afraid it’s difficult to find in a short period of time. I would perhaps have a chance to find spirit fruits that are used by Void Initiation Stage martial artists.” In a short period of time, Duan Ling Tian had thought of many things, and the thoughts in his mind became clear.
“But, wanting to obtain spirit fruits used by Void Initiation Stage martial artists isn’t an easy thing as well… Presently, the Dynasty Martial Competition is about to arrive, and even if a spirit fruit used by Void Initiation Stage martial artists were to appear in the Darkhan Dynasty, it would probably have already been cleanly swept away.” When he thought up to here, Duan Ling Tian couldn’t help but be slightly dejected.
“Moreover, I utterly have no way to search for spirit fruits that are used by Void Initiation Stage martial artists… Eh, I almost forgot him!” As he muttered, Duan Ling Tian shuddered and seemed to have thought of someone.
After he thought of that person, he didn’t hesitate to directly leave his courtyard and leave the estate of the Darkstone Empire in the Darkhan Dynasty.
Not long after, an enormous creature soared into the sky nearby the Darkhan Dynasty’s Capital.
“Big Fellow, I’ll be troubling you.” Duan Ling Tian stood on the Three-Eyed Flame Tiger as he spoke with a light smile.
“Roar!” The Three-Eyed Flame Tiger roared in a low voice, and although he was slightly unhappy, he didn’t dare let it show.
Who knew of the fellow on his back would complain to that little devil? If the little devil were to find out that he’d give this fellow the cold-shoulder, then wouldn’t that little devil freeze him into a popsicle?
With the Three-Eyed Flame Tiger’s speed, it wasn’t long before Duan Ling Tian arrived at Milky Way City once again.
After he entered Milky Way City, Duan Ling Tian directly went to the Treasure Gathering Pavilion.
“Brother Ling Tian, you’ve come to see me so urgently, is something the matter?” As he looked at Duan Ling Tian, Xiang Ying had a bewildered expression.
“Pavilion Master Xiang.” Duan Ling Tian went straight to the point and spoke of the reason of his arrival. “I came here this time because I want to ask you to gather something for me… I want spirit fruits that are used by Void Initiation Stage martial artists! Besides the Spirit Void Fruit that Pavilion Master Xiang gave me the last time, I want all of the other types of spirit fruits.”
When he heard Duan Ling Tian, Xiang Ying was slightly surprised. “Brother Ling Tian, is someone by your side participating in the Dynasty Martial Competition?”
The Darkhan Dynasty’s Dynasty Martial Competition would be held half a year from now.
Presently, practically the entire Darkhan Dynasty was discussing this grand occasion.
At the same time, many powers all around the Darkhan Dynasty had already proclaimed that they were willing to spend extremely high prices to exchange for spirit fruits used by Void Initiation Stage martial artists.
Practically all these powers had young geniuses that were intending to participate in the Dynasty Martial Competition of the Darkhan Dynasty.
The people of every power hoped that the young genius from their power would be able to become eminent in the martial competition and win the qualification to participate in the Martial Competition of the Ten Dynasties.
So, they were willing to pay any price to gather spirit fruits used by Void Initiation Stage martial artists without restraint.
“I’m participating myself.” Duan Ling Tian didn’t conceal it and spoke directly.
“Participating yourself?” Xiang Ying was stunned.
When Duan Ling Tian had come to ask for spirit fruits used by Void Initiation Stage martial artists, he’d reacted at the first possible moment that someone by Duan Ling Tian’s side wanted to participate in the Dynasty Martial Competition, and Duan Ling Tian was searching for spirit fruits for that person.
But he never imagined that Duan Ling Tian himself intended to participate in the martial competition, as Duan Ling Tian was truly too young.
Moreover, he’d heard over two months ago that Duan Ling Tian was only a fourth level Void Initiation Stage martial artist…
With Duan Ling Tian’s age, being able to possess this cultivation caused his natural talent to already be shocking.
But just this bit of cultivation is practically impossible to become eminent in the Dynasty Martial Competition and obtain the qualification to participate in the Martial Competition of the Ten Dynasties.
It was precisely because of this that he never imagined that Duan Ling Tian himself would want to participate in the martial competition.
“Yes.” When faced with Xiang Ying’s repeated question, Duan Ling Tian didn’t become impatient and nodded.
Xiang Ying returned to his senses and laughed bitterly. “Brother Ling Tian, I can only say that I’ll try my best. It’s mainly because the Dynasty Martial Competition is about to begin and not only are the various powers of Darkhan Dynasty gathering spirit fruits used by Void Initiation Stage martial artist, even the various Empires are paying attention to the news about spirit fruits used by Void Initiation Stage martial artists.”
“Presently, so long as a spirit fruit used by Void Initiation Stage martial artists appears, it would utterly not be long before it would be directly bought by someone with a high price!” As he finished speaking, Xiang Ying shook his head and sighed.
As the Pavilion Master of the Treasure Gathering Pavilion, he knew clearly about how many people had come to the Treasure Gathering Pavilion to ask about spirit fruits used by Void Initiation Stage martial artists lately.
So he knew how precious and rare the spirit fruit used by Void Initiation Stage martial artists were at this moment.
Duan Ling Tian nodded as he wasn’t surprised by this.
“Then I’ll request Pavilion Master Xiang to be on the look out for me… If Pavilion Master Xiang is able to obtain spirit fruits besides the Spirit Void Fruit that are used by Void Initiation Stage martial artists, I can ask my Master to lend you a grade three spirit sword to study properly.” Duan Ling Tian looked at Xiang Ying and spoke slowly.
As he finished speaking, there was no lack of an intention to tempt, and this temptation was undoubtedly enormous to a grade four Weapons Craftsman like Xiang Ying.
“Brother Ling Tian, is this true?” Xiang Ying looked at Duan Ling Tian with a serious expression as he asked.
At the same time, his breathing had become hurried, and his chest had even started rising and falling continuously like a bellows that was unable to stop for a long time.
“It’s naturally true.” Duan Ling Tian nodded.
“Brother Ling Tian, don’t worry… During this period of time, I’ll surely try my best to find spirit fruits used by Void Initiation Stage martial artists and the Ageless Root for you!” Xiang Ying promised sincerely.
“If Pavilion Master Xiang is able to find the Ageless Root for me, I can represent my Master to promise to refine a grade three spirit weapon for you… Of course, you have to prepare the materials yourself.” Duan Ling Tian continued to add fuel to the fire, whereas, Xiang Ying had instead become even more excited…
