Chapter 724: Origin Drawing Pearl
Translator: KurazyTolanzuraytor Editor: Jay
“Hmm?” In next to no time, Duan Ling Tian’s Spiritual Force encountered the crimson red rock that the higher-ups of the Azure Forest Tri-Sect had surrounded, and there was actually a formidable force stretching out from it. Moreover, this force was ceaselessly increasing in strength.
At this moment, the entire attention of the higher-ups of the Azure Forest Tri-Sect was on the crimson rock, otherwise they’d probably have noticed Duan Ling Tian’s group that stood in the nearby sky.
“Long Wei.” Lu Yuan, the Sect Leader of the former Origin Convergence Sect looked towards the former Sect Leader of the Demonic Lotusblade Sect. “Could it be that the spirit energy of heaven and earth we’ve poured into it isn’t sufficient?”
Long Wei frowned and looked at the nearby middle aged scholar. “Logically speaking, it ought to be sufficient… Xue Rui, pour a bit more in to try.”
The middle aged scholar was precisely the Sect Leader of the former Snow Moon Sect, Xue Rui.
Xue Rui nodded and with a raise of his hand, a pearl that flickered with a dense milky white sheen appeared in his hand.
Along with his Origin Energy being poured into it, spirit energy of the heaven and earth that was almost liquid gushed out from the pearl and ceaselessly fused into the crimson red rock, whereas, the crimson red rock seemed to be a greedy kid that welcomed everything, and it swallowed all the spirit energy that came its way.
“This is the final Origin Drawing Pearl…If the spirit energy of heaven and earth within it is still insufficient, then I can only extract the spirit energy accumulated in the Spirit Points of our old sects.” Xue Rui frowned when he saw the spirit energy within the Origin Drawing Pearl about to be completely consumed.
“Long Wei, didn’t you say before that the origin energy accumulated in the Spirit Points of the Mountain Split Sect would be sufficient? Now, not only have we utilized the spirit energy within the Spirit Points of the Seven Star Sword Sect, it even seems to be insufficient!” Lu Yuan’s expression sank slightly. “Could it be that you intend to extract the spirit energy accumulated within the Spirit Points of my Origin Convergence Sect and Xue Rui’s Snow Moon Sect? Let me be frank, even if we have to extract spirit energy from our Spirit Points, we have to first extract the spirit energy in the Spirit Points of your Demonic Lotusblade Sect!”
“Lu Yuan, what are you talking about? Your Origin Convergence Sect? Xue Rui’s Snow Moon Sect? Our Demonic Lotusblade Sect? Don’t forget that we’ve long since combined into a single sect! Or perhaps you intend to withdraw from the Azure Forest Tri-Sect? If it’s really like this, then I and Xue Rui will absolutely not stop you.” Long Wei mocked.
“Long Wei!!” Lu Yuan’s expression darkened as he spoke in a low voice. “What do you mean by this? Want to burn the bridge after crossing it? Don’t forget that if you didn’t have the assistance of my Origin Convergence Sect all those years ago, would your Demonic Lotusblade Sect and Xue Rui’s Snow Moon Sect be capable of annihilating the Seven Star Sword Sect?”
“I naturally have not forgotten the assistance of the Origin Convergence Sect.” Long Wei said indifferently, “But the words you spoke earlier was spoken while considering yourself to be the Sect Leader of the Origin Convergence Sect… Don’t forget that you’re currently a Sect Leader of our Azure Forest Tri-Sect.
“So long as we’re able to successfully open up this Firebreath Rock, our Azure Forest Tri-Sect will soar into the sky, and it’ll even surpass the Imperial Family of the Azure Forest Imperial Kingdom… Even if we enter the Darkstone Empire or the Darkhan Dynasty, there will be a place for our Azure Forest Tri-Sect!”
“Remember, look far into the future. You want to do great things with your petty character?” Long Wei wasn’t the slightest bit courteous with his words.
Lu Yuan took a deep breath and didn’t flare up in the end, and he mocked. “I only hope that it’s really successful… No matter what, all of you are on the same boat.”
“This won’t do, it still needs some more.” The Origin Drawing Pearl in Xue Rui’s hand had already transformed into a crystalline and translucent crystal pearl at this moment, and the dense spirit energy accumulated within it was completely gone.
At the same time, the aura emitted from the crimson red rock became even more vaster and tremendous, and it brought about an enormous pressure towards many Azure Forest Tri-Sect disciples.
Some Azure Forest Tri-Sect disciples with low cultivations went pale as they hurriedly withdrew to the borders of the gorge and didn’t dare approach any closer.
Lu Yuan, Long Wei, and Xue Rui’s discussion resounded out within the silent gorge, and it completely entered the ears of Duan Ling Tian’s group that stood high up in the sky.
“Their three great sects combined into one and annihilated the Mountain Split Sect before annihilating our Seven Star Sword Sect as well… All of this was for the sake of the spirit energy of heaven and earth accumulated within the Spirit Points of our sects?” Qin Xiang’s expression was unsightly to the extreme.
Now she finally found out the reason the three great sects had combined all those years ago.
It was for the sake of extracting the spirit energy of heaven and earth within the Spirit Points of the Seven Star Sword Sect and Mountain Split Sect and pouring it into the crimson red rock via the Origin Drawing Pearls.
The crimson red rock seemed to be some sort of Firebreath Rock.
“Origin Drawing Pearl?” Duan Ling Tian’s face sank. “I finally understand why the spirit energy within the nine great Spirit Points of the Seven Star Sword Sect would be completely gone… This Origin Drawing Pearl is indeed capable of extracting the spirit energy accumulated within the Spirit Points.”
Origin Drawing Pearls were an extremely special type of treasures, and they were capable of extracting the spirit energy contained within Origin Stones and spirit points, but the spirit energy extracted couldn’t be directly utilized to cultivate, otherwise, one’s body would explode from the violent energy.
After all, the spirit energy accumulated within the Origin Drawing Pearl was spirit energy that had turned into liquid.
So long as Origin Energy fused into it, the liquid spirit energy within would directly gush out, and the meridians within the bodies of martial artists below the Martial Monarch Stage were utterly incapable of enduring such a force.
Even a Martial Monarch Stage expert wouldn’t dare rashly take the risk and utilize liquid spirit energy to cultivate.
“The Mountain Split Sect and the Seven Star Sword Sect were only sacrifices for the sake of opening that Firebreath Rock.” Suddenly, Duan Ling Tian clenched his fists tightly as the cold lights within his eyes grew colder to the point of seeming to be waiting for a chance to swallow his enemies up.
“I truly never imagined that there’s actually a Firebreath Rock of legend in this tiny Imperial Kingdom.” Feng Wu Dao stared fixedly at the crimson red rock in the gorge, and his eyes lit up.
“Father, what’s a Firebreath Rock?” Feng Tian Wu asked curiously.
“You’ll know soon enough… If I’m not wrong, this Firebreath Rock only requires a little more liquid spirit energy to be poured into it before it’ll open up.” Feng Wu Dao kept Feng Tian Wu guessing, and it caused her to be both angry and irritated.
“Ling Tian, what do you intend to do? Do you want to go down and meet your acquaintances now, or do you want to wait a while more?” Feng Wu Dao asked Duan Ling Tian.
“Let’s wait a while more… I’ve already waited a few years, so there’s no rush.” The corners of Duan Ling Tian’s mouth curled into a cold smile as cold lights flickered within his eyes, and it seemed as if he was waiting for something.
“Alright, it’s more interesting like this.” Feng Wu Dao’s calm face revealed a rare smile.
Besides Elder Kong, Feng Tian Wu, Qin Xiang, and Mo Yu had perplexed expressions, as Duan Ling Tian and Feng Wu Dao were keeping them guessing.
As for Elder Peng, he seemed to have not heard the conversation between Duan Ling Tian and Feng Wu Dao at all. His sharp eyes were staring fixedly at the higher-ups of the Azure Forest Tri-Sect.
So long as Duan Ling Tian gave the order, he wouldn’t hesitate in the slightest to pounce down and launch a bloody slaughter!
At the same time, the numerous Azure Forest Tri-Sect disciples in the Demonic Lotusblade Gorge had remained silent since the beginning.
At this moment, they were staring at the three Sect Leaders and all the elders in the sky with burning gazes.
Of course, even more of them were staring at the crimson red rock.
“Long Wei, you ought to extract the spirit energy within the Spirit Points of the Demonic Lotusblade Sect now, right?” Lu Yuan looked at Long Wei and said indifferently, “The Demonic Lotusblade Gorge is one of our Azure Forest Tri-Sect’s bases, and it’s close at hand, you…”
“Hmph! Take it.” Lu Yuan hadn’t finished speaking when he was interrupted by Long Wei, and with a raise of his hand, a pearl that flickered with white lights appeared in Long Wei’s palm before shooting towards Lu Yuan.
Lu Yuan raised his hand to receive it, and his pupils constricted as he gazed at the pearl in his hand. “Origin Drawing Pearl? Moreover, it’s filled with liquid spirit energy… Long Wei, where did you get this? Hasn’t the spirit energy extracted from the Spirit Points of the Mountain Split Sect and Seven Star Sword Sect already been used?”
“You can be at ease, it wasn’t extracted from your Origin Convergence Sect’s Spirit Point… The spirit energy within is from the Demonic Lotusblade Gorge.” Long Wei mocked.
Lu Yuan’s face froze, and he felt slightly embarrassed.
Earlier, he was still displaying his displeasure towards Long Wei, and he said that if the liquid spirit energy was insufficient, then Long Wei should extract the spirit energy accumulated within the Spirit Points of the Demonic Lotusblade Sect.
Unexpectedly, Long Wei had extracted the spirit energy within the Spirit Points of the Demonic Lotusblade Sect long ago, and he seemed resolute to pay any price for the sake of his objective.
“Lu Yuan, quickly… I feel that when the spirit energy within this Origin Drawing Pearl fuses into the Firebreath Rock, then it ought to be enough.” Xue Rui urged Lu Yuan.
“If it isn’t enough, then we’ll extract the spirit energy within the Spirit Points of the Origin Convergence Sect… Long Wei, I wasn’t convinced of your ability in the past, but I admired your resolution today!” Lu Yuan looked at Long Wei and spoke sincerely.
“Enough! If the Origin Drawing Pearl in your hand isn’t enough, I still have two more… The Demonic Lotusblade Gorge has a total of seven Spirit Points, and I’ve extracted the spirit energy from three. I originally thought that it was better to be prepared, yet I never imagined that it would really be of use.” Long Wei spoke indifferently.
“Three?!” Lu Yuan and Xue Rui glanced at each other as their pupils constricted.
Never had they imagined that Long Wei would be so resolute.
This was the Demonic Lotusblade Gorge, the base of the Demonic Lotusblade Sect that he used to be the Leader of. It possessed a total of seven Spirit Points, yet he’d actually extracted the spirit energy from three of them?
For a time, they could feel Long Wei’s resolution.
“I’m inferior to him.” Lu Yuan and Xue Rui sent a voice transmission to each other, yet they spoke the same thing, and it caused them to be unable to help but be stunned.
After a short moment, they glanced and smiled at each other once they recovered from their shock.
Lu Yuan didn’t dally any longer and poured his Origin Energy into the Origin Drawing Pearl in his hand. Instantly, dense liquid spirit energy gushed out to once again fuse into the crimson red rock, whereas, the crimson red rock continued to greedily swallow the liquid spirit energy, and the crimson red sheen on its surface grew darker and darker.
When the half of the liquid spirit energy in the Origin Drawing Pearl’s was swallowed, the enormous crimson red rock had finally stopped swallowing, yet it suddenly expanded to the point it seemed it was soon to explode, causing it to seem extremely peculiar.
Suddenly, a clear sound resounded out, and a crack had appeared out of thin air on the surface of the crimson red rock.
