Chapter 65: Strong Self-Confidence
Translator: / KurazyTolanzuraytor Editor: Lucas
The Violet Meteorite Flexible Sword descended and blood sprayed everywhere…
Li Fei’s complexion turned pale.
Although she had killed many wild animals in the Misty Forest, she had never once killed a person.
Now that a well and alive person was killed right in front of her eyes, it caused her to feel disgusted and she ran aside to vomit.
Putting away the Violet Meteorite Flexible Sword, Duan Ling Tian extended his hand and removed He Zu Dao’s Spatial Ring.
After biting open his index finger, he dripped blood on the ring to establish ownership.
A feeling of being joined by blood descended upon him. Duan Ling Tian’s face couldn’t help but curl into a smile.
Possessing Rebirth Martial Emperor’s lifetime worth of memories allowed Duan Ling Tian to use the Spatial Ring like how he directed his arm…
“F**k, so small!”
When his thoughts entered into the Spatial Ring, he saw that there was a mere one cubic meter of space. He was dazed for a moment before he couldn’t stop himself from shouting in vulgarities.
“You’re the He Clan’s Supreme Elder, but you’re actually using the lowest grade Spatial Ring.”
As he said this, Duan Ling Tian glanced in contempt at He Zu Dao’s body.
It was imaginable that if He Zu Dao wasn’t dead, he would certainly be angered to the point of spitting blood…
“Never mind, I’ll just improvise.”
Duan Ling Tian didn’t wear the Spatial Ring on his hand but instead kept it in his pocket.
The Spatial Ring wasn’t something that could be exposed in public.
Only once he steps into the Core Formation Stage and becomes a weapons craftsman, he can alter the Spatial Ring’s outer appearance; only then could he publically use the Spatial Ring.
“How is this the He Clan’s Supreme Elder? He’s virtually a pauper! Besides a few Grade Seven Gold Injury Pills and a few cultivation methods ond martial skills, there is actually only a bit over 100 silver of spare change…”
After examining the items inside the Spatial Ring, Duan Ling Tian couldn’t help but mock him.
Duan Ling Tian, however, didn’t know that as the He Clan’s Supreme Elder, He Zu Dao had an extraordinary status.
If he wanted money, the He Clan would spare no effort to fulfill his request, so he didn’t have a need of keeping silver on his body.
His face represented an enormous wealth.
Following this was destroying the corpse and obliterating all tracks.
Duan Ling Tian lit a fire and directly burned He Zu Dao’s corpse.
“Where’s the Snow Python’s nest?”
After looking for a long while, Duan Ling Tian was unable to locate the Snow Python’s nest. His treasure hunt completely came to nothing.
“Damned He Zu Dao, not to mention you yourself are poor, you even destroyed the Snow Python’s body to such an extent… The Blood Explosion Inscription, you were actually willing to use it!”
Looking at the Snow Python’s badly destroyed body, Duan Ling Tian had a pained expression.
As the king of the fierce beasts, the Snow Python’s entire body was filled with treasures, but it was completely destroyed by He Zu Dao.
Just at this moment, Duan Ling Tian’s eyes shone.
On the Snow Python’s body, a white ball that flickered with a faint brilliance floated up.
Duan Ling Tian’s breathing became rapid. He didn’t expect that the Snow Python’s Beast Core was actually completely unharmed.
Just when he walked out and wanted to fetch the Beast Core.
The smile on his face froze completely.
The two little pythons flashed out, quickly dividing and consuming the Snow Python’s Beast Core.
“Never mind. Even if I took the Beast Core, I would have no use it for it in the near future. I might as well let them take it.”
Duan Ling Tian quickly got over it.
A human was unable to directly consume a fierce beast’s Beast Core.
If consumed, the lighter consequence would be qi deviation, whereas the heavier consequence would by death by explosion.
Humans could only use fierce beast Beast Cores as medicinal catalysts; only after being combined with other valuable medicinal materials to refine into a medicinal pill can they be consumed.
A Beast Core of a formidable fierce beast like the Snow Python that was comparable to a Nascent Soul martial artist would at least require a Grade Seven Alchemist to refine…
Grade Seven Alchemist.
To Duan Ling Tian, it was quite a distance away.
After burning the Snow Python’s corpse as well, Duan Ling Tian brought Ke Er and Li Fei along as he left the Misty Forest.
On the way back.
“That Spatial Ring…”
Li Fei looked at Duan Ling Tian with a spurious smile.
Duan Ling Tian glared as he said, “Don’t get any ideas about the Spatial Ring, it’s mine.”
“I’m not. Even if I had any ideas about it, it would be of no use. I’m just curious… If someone knew you had that Spatial Ring, what would happen?”
Li Fei’s charm-filled eyes flickered with a faint smiling expression.
“Are you threatening me?”
Duan Ling Tian’s eyes narrowed as the corners of his mouth curled into grin.
A bad omen arose in Li Fei’s heart.
“Heh, looks like someone doesn’t want me to help her grandfather get well… Never mind, I’ll save my energy.”
Duan Ling Tian mischievously smiled.
Li Fei’s face turned pale as she angrily said, “You, you… you rascal! You plainly promised me.”
“Did I promise? Why, don’t I know… Ke Er, did I promise her?”
Duan Ling Tian glanced at Ke Er with a slight smile.
At this moment, Ke Er was taking care of the two little pythons that had gone into a deep slumber after consuming the Snow Python’s Beast Core.
Her beautiful, clear eyes emitted a motherly brilliance.
“Young Master, I didn’t hear anything.”
Ke Er naturally stood on Duan Ling Tian’s side.
“You two…You two are bullying me.”
Li Fei’s eyes turned red as if they were about to tear up again.
“Enough, as long as you keep today’s matter a secret, I will surely return a healthy grandfather to you. Not only that, I can even allow him to smoothly become a Grade Eight Weapons Craftsmen without leaving behind any aftereffects.”
Duan Ling Tian compromised.
Li Fei smiled through her tears.
“Right, since your grandfather knows that He Zu Dao killed his father years ago, why didn’t he make the blood letter public? That would allow everyone to clearly see He Zu Dao’s true face.”
Duan Ling Tian asked about the uncertainty in his heart.
“Did you think my grandfather didn’t want to? But when my grandfather found the blood letter, He Zu Dao had already become Aqua Mist City’s He Clan’s Grand Elder and had extraordinary status. Even if my grandfather made it public, it would be impossible for the Li Clan to offend the He Clan’s Grand Elder over a disciple who had died years ago.”
“Moreover, my grandfather was also worried that once the blood letter was made public, it would cause He Zu Dao to get angry from embarrassment and even take revenge … At that time, my grandmother just happened to be pregnant with my father, so my grandfather chose to bear it patiently, and this matter slowly became a knot in his heart.”
Li Fei heaved a sigh.
“Now the knot in your grandfather’s heart can be unlocked because this future son-in-law of his has taken revenge for him!”
Duan Ling Tian laughed slyly.
“Who would want to marry you?”
Li Fei gave Duan Ling Tian a disdainful glance as her enchantingly beautiful face blushed.
Deeply afraid that Duan Ling Tian would notice, she hurriedly turned around.
Under the setting sun, the outline of Aurora City eventually appeared before them.
Duan Ling Tian and the two young girls returned directly to the Li Clan Estate.
After asking Ke Er to take the two little pythons home first, he followed Li Fei and arrived at Li Fei’s home.
“Fei, you’re back?”
In the vast courtyard stood an old man that was over seventy years of age.
The old man had a thin figure; it was as if he would be blown down by the wind.
“Grandfather, I have good news to tell you.”
Li Fei walked into the courtyard and grabbed the old man’s hand. Her face emitted a light smile.
The old man had a doting expression as he smiled and asked, “What good news?”
Li Fei put her mouth close to the old man’s ears and lightly said, “Grandfather, He Zu Dao is dead.”
Instantly, the old man’s body shook as if struck by lightning, and his breathing became hurried…
The old man took in a deep breath and slowly said, “Fei, you can’t joke about things like this.”
Even though he knew that this granddaughter of his had never lied to him before, what his granddaughter said right now was really too inconceivable.
“Grandfather, He Zu Dao was killed by him. If you don’t believe me, you can ask him.”
Noticing the old man didn’t believe her, Li Fei instantly became anxious and hurriedly looked at Duan Ling Tian with an expression that said that she was begging for help.
“You’re Duan Ling Tian?”
The old man’s cloudy gaze instantly flickered with a sharp light and descended upon Duan Ling Tian as if trying to see through him.
But unfortunately, he was bound to be disappointed.
Duan Ling Tian stood there, unmoved, like an immovable mountain.
“Not bad, you’re worthy of your reputation. I now believe that you have the strength to defeat Li Qing.”
The old man nodded.
Duan Ling Tian greeted the old man.
Instantly, the old man was dumbstruck.
Li Fei’s face instantly blushed as she fiercely glared at Duan Ling Tian.
Noticing his granddaughter’s expression, the old man seemed to have understood something and laughed out loud.
“Grandfather, it’s not like that,” Li Fei explained in panic.
“Fei, you don’t have to be shy. Men should get married and women should be married… Moreover, I think this kid isn’t bad; he has the qualifications to be my grandson-in-law. Although sometimes he likes to talk big, these are just small problems and are not a big deal.”
As the old man finished speaking, he seemed to contain a hidden meaning pointing to something.
“Grandfather, whether I’m talking big or not, you’ll know soon. I’ll first testify on behalf of Li Fei that your personal enemy who killed your father, He Zu Dao, is indeed dead. He was killed my sword strike…This Spatial Ring is the best evidence.”
Duan Ling Tian withdrew the Spatial Ring from his pocket as he spoke, then he handed it over to the old man.
The old man’s hands trembled as he received it and sized it up.
The old man was agitated.
“Right… Right, this is indeed He Zu Dao’s Spatial Ring! What exactly happened?” he asked after returning the Spatial Ring to Duan Ling Tian.
Duan Ling Tian quickly told the entire story to the old man.
“Snow Python? Haha…The heavens aren’t blind, the heavens aren’t blind…”
The old man laughed loudly and joyfully.
The knot in his heart for many years had finally been unlocked.
For a moment, his face glowed as if becoming a few years younger.
The old man gathered his breath before sincerely saying to Duan Ling Tian, “Ling Tian kid, thank you.”
“We’re family, so you don’t have to be so courteous, Grandfather… If I’m not wrong, besides having a burning sensation in your Origin Energy lately and having a hard time sleeping, when you refine weapons, you frequently feel restless and even feel like you have the heart but not the strength to complete the refinement, right?” Duan Ling Tian said, with a serious face.
The old man took a deep breath before asking in disbelief, “Ling Tian kid, you can really notice my hidden injuries from forcefully increasing my Weapon Flame’s grade just by looking at the Spirit Weapon I refined?”
“Of course. Not only can I notice the hidden injuries, I can even help grandfather heal them, but you have to wait until I step into the Core Formation Stage,” Duan Ling Tian said.
The old man was puzzled.
“Because only when I step into the Core Formation Stage will I be able to condense a Pill Flame from my Origin Energy and refine a medicinal pill which can help grandfather’s hidden injuries heal,” Duan Ling Tian slowly said.
“Ling Tian, kid, even if you have an alchemist’s natural talent, becoming an alchemist isn’t so simple…”
The old man laughed bitterly as he that felt Duan Ling Tian was reaching beyond his grasp.
“Grandfather, no matter what I say now, you wouldn’t believe me. In two months at most, you will know whether what I said is true or false.”
Duan Ling Tian’s body emitted strong self-confidence.
