Chapter 665: 5,000 Low Grade Origin Stones
Translator: KurazyTolanzuraytor Editor: Jay
“Uncle Feng, is there any limit to the betting in this Cage Battle Arena?” Duan Ling Tian asked curiously.
“No.” Feng Wu Dao shook his head, and then asked curiously. “Could it be that you’re asking this because you want to bet as well? But a bet of gold and silver has to be done in the other two spectating areas below.”
“No! I’m not betting in gold and silver.” Duan Ling Tian shook his head, and then he contemplated for a moment before he raised his hand and a pile of low grade Origin Stones appeared in his hand.
A few thousand low grade Origin Stones were held up like this by Duan Ling Tian with his Origin Energy.
It wasn’t that he wanted to do this, but it was truly too many Origin Stones, and if he didn’t use his Origin Energy to support them, he wouldn’t be able to hold all of them even if he extended both his hands.
For a time, Feng Wu Dao, Elder Kong, and Feng Tian Wu were stunned as they looked at the Origin Stones in Duan Ling Tian’s hand.
“Tian Wu, there are 5,000 low grade Origin Stones here… Help me place them on myself.” Duan Ling Tian lightly smiled, and with a raise of his hand, the 5,000 low grade Origin Stones flew towards Tian Wu and floated before her.
“Yes, Big Brother Duan.” Feng Tian Wu recovered from her shock and put away all the Origin Stones into her Spatial Ring.
Low grade Origin Stones weren’t unfamiliar to her.
But even she had at most a few tens of low grade Origin Stones in her positions.
She believed that even if it was her father, he wouldn’t be able to take out so many low grade Origin Stones at a single time.
“We’ll share the gains equally.” Duan Ling Tian smiled.
“Big Brother Duan, I can’t accept it… No matter how much the gain is, I’ll give it all to you.” Feng Tian Wu shook her head and was unwilling to take advantage of Duan Ling Tian.
When he saw Feng Tian Wu persisting, Duan Ling Tian didn’t continue persuading her. At any rate, Feng Tian Wu had Feng Wu Dao standing behind her, so she presumably had no lack of low grade Origin Stones.
In the Darkhan Dynasty, even though mid grade and high grade spirit stones were rarely seen, but low grade spirit stones were numerous.
After all, the Imperial Family of the Darkhan Dynasty controlled a low grade Origin Stone vein.
Of course, guarding this ore vein wasn’t something a mere Imperial Family was able to do, and it still had to rely on the assistance of the formidable powers like the Feng Clan, Zhang Clan, and Ye Clan.
So everytime low grade Origin Stones were mined, besides the Imperial Family obtaining a big portion, the other powers like the Feng Clan would obtain a portion.
The amount the Feng Clan was able to obtain was merely inferior to the Imperial Family.
As the Eldest Master of the Feng Clan, an existence with extraordinary strength, Feng Wu Dao naturally had no lack of low grade Origin Stones.
“You wouldn’t be thinking of informing your superiors, right?” Suddenly, Duan Ling Tian’s brows raised, and he looked at the nearby armor soldier and spoke with a low voice.
Presently, the soldier was intending to leave.
Obviously, he was intending to secretly deliver the information and ask them to reduce the payment rate for Duan Ling Tian being victorious.
Meanwhile, Elder Kong reacted to this, and he glanced coldly at the soldier and grunted. “If you dare make another move, I’ll kill you!”
Elder Kong’s words caused the soldiers body to stiffen, and his face became ghastly pale.
But he didn’t dare get up to any little tricks.
He knew clearly in his heart that with the status of this old man in the Darkhan Dynasty, killing him was as simple as crushing an ant.
“Ling Tian, even I don’t carry so many Origin Stones with me… Where did you get them?” Feng Wu Dao looked at Duan Ling Tian and asked with slight surprise.
Duan Ling Tian withdrawing 5,000 low grade Origin Stones in one go had shocked him as well.
The corners of Duan Ling Tian’s mouth lightly twitched when he heard Feng Wu Dao.
He wondered that if Feng Wu Dao knew that besides a few thousand low grade Origin Stones, there were also a few tens of mid grade Origin Stones and a single high grade Origin Stone in his Spatial Ring at this moment, what would Feng Wu Dao’s expression be like?
Of course, he didn’t plan to tell Feng Wu Dao.
“Uncle Feng, I went wandering in the surroundings when I first arrived at the Darkhan Dynasty… Later on, I found a concealed cave in a remote mountain ridge.” Duan Ling Tian spoke at random and fabricated a bizarre experience. “At that time, I noticed a skeleton and a Spatial Ring within that cave. Those Origin Stones are from that Spatial Ring.”
“Big Brother Duan, your luck is really good.” Feng Tian Wu spoke with surprise.
“Yes, a fortuitous encounter like this isn’t something that anyone can chance upon… Brother Duan is a person with good luck as expected. All those years ago, you found the underwater abode; now, you encountered the remains of a predecessor with an extraordinary background.” Elder Kong sighed.
As far as he was concerned, a person that possessed 5,000 low grade Origin Stones in his Spatial Ring was surely of extraordinary background.
“Yeah, your luck isn’t bad.” Feng Wu Dao glanced deeply at Duan Ling Tian, and it caused Duan Ling Tian to feel slightly afraid of being found out.
He was able to discern that Feng Wu Dao didn’t quite believe what he said.
“Tian Wu, I’ll go join King Yong and the others.” After notifying Feng Tian Wu, Duan Ling Tian flew out and headed towards the second-class spectating area and firmly descended onto the spectating area where King Yong and the others were, and he descended just before the seats of King Yong and the other.
Meanwhile, many gazes descended onto Duan Ling Tian…
This young man had obviously come down from the first-class spectating area.
“Who exactly is he?”
“He seems to be someone from an Empire under our Darkhan Dynasty… But, he seems to have ascended the first-class spectating area earlier. Looks like he’s acquainted with a distinguished figure of our Darkhan Dynasty.”
“It’s probably like that.”
The crowd of spectators at the third-class spectating area discussed animatedly, whereas, in the other second-class spectating areas, the young geniuses of representatives from the various Empires looked at Duan Ling Tian with astonished gazes now.
“When did the Darkstone Empire have such a figure? He’s actually related to a distinguished figure of the Darkhan Dynasty.”
“If I defeat him, then wouldn’t it be a great honor?”
“I’ll surely make him become my stepping stone!”
At this moment, the young geniuses of the various Empires looked at Duan Ling Tian as if they were hunters looking at their prey, and it was as if they wished for nothing more than to enter the arena and defeat Duan Ling Tian.
“King Yong!” After he descended, Duan Ling Tian lightly smiled as he greeted King Yong.
“Duan Ling Tian, come, sit here.” King Yong gestured at Duan Ling Tian to sit by his side.
Presently, amongst the group of people from the Darkstone Empire, King Yong was sitting alone at the front.
The two old men instead sat at the row behind him, whereas the row behind the two old men was where Su Li and the other young geniuses of the Darkstone Empire sat.
“I’ll sit by Su Li’s side.” Duan Ling Tian smiled to King Yong and flashed out to descend onto the empty seat by Su Li’s side.
King Yong didn’t persist when he saw this.
After he sat by Su Li’s side, Duan Ling Tian’s Spiritual Force couldn’t help but stretch out and envelop Su Li, and he quickly detected Su Li’s cultivation.
“Eighth level of the Void Initiation Stage! As expected.” Duan Ling Tian sighed in his heart, and he wasn’t surprised by this.
The other day, he’d detected that Long Yun’s cultivation has already broken through to the seventh level of the Void Initiation Stage, so he guessed that Su Li’s cultivation ought to have improved again.
Now it would seem that his guess was correct.
“Su Li, how’s your comprehension in Sword Concept?” After he detected Su Li’s cultivation, Duan Ling Tian couldn’t refrain from asking.
“Wouldn’t you know when it’s my turn to fight?” Su Li smiled mysteriously.
Duan Ling Tian shook his head and smiled.
Su Li is actually keeping me guessing?
But when he thought about how he liked to keep people guessing as well, he couldn’t help but shake his head.
Could it be that this is retribution?
Subsequently, Duan Ling Tian’s gaze started to flash past the numerous second-class spectating area, “Including our Darkstone Empire, there are a total of 17 Empires that have arrived… But it seems that not all of them have arrived.” In next to no time, Duan Ling Tian saw many more people arriving at the second-class spectating area.
Along with the passage of time, the people of the 31 Empires had quickly gathered.
Meanwhile, the people that arrived grew fewer and fewer.
“I wonder how many Empires are there in total within the Darkhan Dynasty.” Duan Ling Tian muttered to himself.
“There’re a total of 36 Empires in the Darkhan Dynasty.” Su Li heard Duan Ling Tian’s muttering and lightly smiled as he spoke.
“Su Li, you even know this?” Duan Ling Tian spoke curiously.
Su Li smiled. “Not only do I know of them, I’ve practically gone to all of them.”
Duan Ling Tian was astonished, as he never imagined that Su Li had once gone to so many places. “I presume it’s that master of Su Li’s that brought him to these places.”
Now Duan Ling Tian was more and more interested towards Su Li’s master.
“Su Li, has your master come today?” Duan Ling Tian asked curiously.
Today was the Dynasty Martial Competition and Su Li would be participating to compete for the qualification to participate in the second phase of the Dynasty Martial Competition.
“No.” Su Li shook his head.”
“Right.” Duan Ling Tian smiled. “It’s only the first phase of the Dynasty Martial Competition today, and it will decide on the 30 strongest young geniuses of the various Empires… With your current strength, I presume it’s in the bag. Your master knows the outcome, so it isn’t strange that he isn’t coming.”
Su Li glanced at Duan Ling Tian with astonishment.
He never imagined that Duan Ling Tian was so confident towards him.
After all, he’d never revealed his current cultivation in public, and only he and his master knew about it.
“No.” Su Li shook his head. “Not only will Master not be coming today, even if I pass through the first phase of the Dynasty Martial Competition and obtain the qualification to participate in the second phase tomorrow, Master will still not come.”
“He isn’t coming tomorrow either?” This time, it was Duan Ling Tian who was completely stunned.
Could it be that Su Li’s master isn’t interested in the Dynasty Martial Competition and even the Martial Competition of the Ten Dynasties?
Or perhaps, he feels that Su Li will surely obtain the qualification to participate in the Martial Competition of the Ten Dynasties?
So there was no need to come?
The more he thought about it, the more Duan Ling Tian was sure about it.
“Duan Ling Tian, let’s not talk about my Master first… Earlier, that person that brought you up to the first-class spectating area seems to not be simple.” Su Li glanced at Duan Ling Tian and asked with deep meaning in his words.
“He is.” Duan Ling Tian nodded, and then he said, “But no matter how extraordinary, I’m afraid he can’t compare to that master of yours… After all, your master is an existence from the Foreign Lands.”
The words ‘Foreign Lands’ possessed an absolute deterrent force in the various Dynasties.
Never had Su Li imagined that in the blink of an eye, Duan Ling Tian had turned around the topic, and he shook his head helplessly and didn’t ask any further.
Otherwise, he didn’t know to where Duan Ling Tian would twist the topic to.
