Translator: KurazyTolanzuraytor Editor: Jay
Duan Ling Tian continued to rely on the Wind Concept Fragment to comprehend Wind Concept in the following days, and he noticed in the end that his improvement was slow, as if he’d encountered a bottleneck.
“Perhaps I ought to stop.” Duan Ling Tian thought in his heart.
Of course, it was only Wind Concept that he stopped comprehending, but he could still comprehend other Concepts.
In next to no time, Duan Ling Tian withdrew the first level Advanced Lightning Concept Fragment he’d obtained a few months ago after killing Bai Nan Xiang with the talisman, and he started comprehending.
As the force of nature that represented heavenly punishment, the might of lightning was naturally formidable.
Besides Ice Concept, Lightning faintly stood above the other forces of nature.
As he held the Lightning Concept Fragment in his hand, Duan Ling Tian quickly immersed himself in the comprehension of lightning, and it seemed like waves of deafening thunderclaps resounded out by his ears.
Bang! Bang! Bang! Bang! Bang!
Numerous thunderclaps practically blasted apart Duan Ling Tian’s ear drums.
Under the assistance of the Concept Fragment, Duan Ling Tian’s Lightning Concept advanced at an extremely swift speed, but he would still try and take up the Wind Concept Fragment once in awhile to see if his comprehension of Wind Concept had returned back on the right track.
Up until the day before leaving, the feeling when he comprehended Wind Concept in the past had returned after he comprehended fourth level Lightning Concept.
When he held the Wind Concept Fragment, he felt as if he was enveloped by a gust of wind, and this sort of feeling was extremely wonderful and peculiar.
At this moment, Duan Ling Tian felt as he he’d transformed into wind.
His comprehension of Wind Concept still continued, whereas the day of departure had arrived at the appointed time.
Right when Duan Ling Tian intended to head to the Imperial palace with Feng Tian Wu, she brought him a piece of good news. “Big Brother Duan, my father has notified the Emperor already. We three will head to the northern desert by ourselves, but we have to arrive at the Ancient Desert City before the Martial Competition of the Ten Dynasties that’s held half a year from now.”
“Ancient Desert City?” Duan Ling Tian was stunned, and then he looked curiously at Feng Tian Wu. “That’s where the Martial Competition of the Ten Dynasties is going to be carried out?”
“Yes.” Feng Tian Wu nodded. “The Ancient Desert City seems to be a city controlled by that power of the Foreign Lands that’s conducting the Martial Competition of the Ten Dynasties.”
“You said we three earlier?” Duan Ling Tian had a bewildered expression when he recalled Feng Tian Wu’s words from before.
“Grandpa Kong isn’t following us this time,” said Feng Tian Wu.
Duan Ling Tian came to a sudden understanding.
Suddenly, an enormous black figure flew over towards them from the distance to arrive above Duan Ling Tian and Feng Tian Wu in the blink of an eye, and waves of violent winds descended from high above in the sky, causing the clothes of Duan Ling Tian and Feng Tian Wu to flutter with the wind.
“We ought to depart now.” Right when Duan Ling Tian and Feng Tian Wu squinted and looked up, a familiar voice sounded out from high above in the sky behind the enormous creature.
Duan Ling Tian and Feng Tian Wu soared up into the sky and descended onto the back of the enormous creature together when they heard this.
Feng Wu Dao had been waiting there since long ago.
“Let’s go!” Along with Feng Wu Dao’s light shout, the enormous creature beneath the three of them instantly transformed into a bolt of black lightning that flashed towards the north.
In the blink of an eye, the Darkhan Dynasty’s Imperial City vanished before Duan Ling Tian’s eyes.
“This is… An Azure Eyed Eagle?” Duan Ling Tian flashed through the memories of the Rebirth Martial Emperor as he looked at the enormous creature beneath his feet, and then he couldn’t help but cry out in shock.
An Azure Eyed Eagle was a formidable demon beast that possessed the bloodline of a Void Interpretation Stage demon beast.
When ordinary Azure Eyed Eagles matured to the limit, they would be demon beasts at the fourth, fifth, or sixth level of the Void Interpretation Stage, whereas, Azure Eyed Eagles with extraordinary natural talent would instead break through their shackles once they matured to the limit and break through to the seventh level of the Void Interpretation Stage.
Even if it was an Azure Eyed Eagle with inferior natural talent, it would still be able to break through to the first level of the Void Interpretation Stage at least.
“Little fellow, your judgment isn’t bad, as you’re actually able to recognize that I’m an Azure Eyed Eagle.” Right at this moment, an aged and hoarse voice entered clearly into Duan Ling Tian’s ears.
“Greetings, Senior.” Duan Ling Tian was able to discern that this was the voice of the Azure Eyed Eagle, and he lightly nodded in greeting.
As a demon beast at the Void Interpretation Stage, it was capable of speaking, and besides being unable to transform into human form, it was no different to humans in any other aspects, like intelligence.
“Grandpa Qing, we haven’t seen each other for many years.” Feng Tian Wu smiled as she greeted the Azure Eyed Eagle, and her tone was rather casual.
“You little girl, you’ve grown more and more beautiful now.” The Azure Eyed Eagle slightly turned his head before his sharp eyes looked concentratedly at Feng Tian Wu, and his voice was filled with amiableness.
But when the Azure Eyed Eagle’s eyes descended onto Duan Ling Tian, it instead became even fiercer. “Little Fellow, if you dare make Little Girl Wu suffer, then I’ll surely tear you into two pieces!” As the Azure Eyed Eagle finished speaking, his tone was filled with ruthlessness, whereas, Duan Ling Tian didn’t doubt the words of the Azure Eyed Eagle.
His Spiritual Force that stretched out had told him since long ago that this Azure Eyed Eagle just happened to be one of those Azure Eyed Eagles with extremely high natural talent, and its cultivation had already stepped into the seventh level of the Void Interpretation Stage.
The words spoke by the Azure Eyed Eagle caused Duan Ling Tian to be slightly embarrassed for a time.
Feng Tian Wu couldn’t watch idly by any longer and she hurriedly helped Duan Ling Tian out from the embarrassing situation and spoke angrily. “Grandpa Qing, if you continue talking nonsense, then I’ll ignore you in the future.”
“Little Girl Wu, you haven’t even got married, yet you’re already starting to help him… Looks like you’ll surely be completely controlled by him in the future.” The Azure Eyed Eagle shook his head slightly as he sighed like a human.
“Grandpa Qing, you!?” The Azure Eyed Eagle’s words caused Feng Tian Wu’s beautiful face to instantly flush red, and she was slightly angry and embarrassed, then she looked hurriedly at Duan Ling Tian. “Big Brother Duan, don’t pay attention to Grandpa Qing… He’s always liked to talk nonsense.”
Duan Ling Tian lightly smiled as he nodded and indicate that he didn’t take it to heart.
At the same time that Feng Tian Wu heaved a sigh of relief when she saw this, she couldn’t avoid from revealing a slight sense of loss in the depths of her beautiful eyes.
“Qing is my good friend, and we’ve already known each other for over 20 years.” Feng Wu Dao, who’d remained silent all this time, spoke out to Duan Ling Tian.
Duan Ling Tian nodded, and he was slightly surprised at the same time. Feng Wu Dao was at most a Void Initiation Stage martial artist 20 years ago, whereas, this Azure Eyed Eagle was most probably already at the Void Interpretation Stage.
Such a great disparity was between them yet they were still able to become friends, so it may be assumed that there was surely a story in this.
Azure Eyed Eagles were famous for their ruthlessness, so since he was able to become friends with Feng Wu Dao, he had presumably helped him with something, causing him to feel indebted in his heart.
This was something that Duan Ling Tian was extremely easily capable of guessing through the records related to Azure Eyed Eagles in the memories of the Rebirth Martial Emperor.
During the following stretch of the journey, this was verified in the conversations between him and Feng Tian Wu.
The Azure Eyed Eagle’s speed was extremely swift, and it was at least swifter than the enormous sword that Feng Wu Dao condensed with Origin Energy to carry them.
Of course, this didn’t mean that the Azure Eyed Eagle’s strength was stronger than Feng Wu Dao, but it was instead because Feng Wu Dao only utilized an extremely small amount of Origin Energy when he controlled the enormous sword, causing the enormous sword’s speed to reduce greatly and only be comparable to the speed of a fifth or sixth level Void Interpretation Stage martial artist.
“Elder Qing, can you open up your Origin Energy barrier a little bit more? I want to try and sense the strong winds that move swiftly outside.” Duan Ling Tian walked slowly to arrive behind the Azure Eyed Eagle’s neck, and he spoke courteously.
“Hmm?” Feng Tian Wu was stunned, and then she said anxiously, “Big Brother Duan, Elder Qing is moving at full speed now, and the wind outside is extremely strong. It’s extremely difficult for you to resist it with your current cultivation.”
“I want to try.” Duan Ling Tian smiled.
“Qing, slow down and cooperate with him, and then increase your speed by an appropriate amount.” Meanwhile, Feng Wu Dao spoke out, as he’d obviously discerned Duan Ling Tian’s intentions and intended to help Duan Ling Tian.
“Thank you, Uncle Feng.” After he noticed the Azure Eyed Eagle’s speed slowed down, Duan Ling Tian’s gaze lit up as he expressed his gratitude to Feng Wu Dao.
Subsequently, the Azure Eyed Eagle slightly shrunk back the Origin Energy barrier behind his head, causing a large empty area to appear, and it was a space sufficient for Duan Ling Tian to temper himself on.
Meanwhile, Duan Ling Tian, who stood behind the neck of the Azure Eyed Eagle, was completely exposed outside, and he could clearly sense the terrifying gale that assaulted his face.
At this moment, the speed of the Azure Eyed Eagle was probably comparable to the full speed of a first level Void Interpretation Stage martial artist that was flying while relying solely on his Origin Energy.
Duan Ling Tian didn’t feel too great pressure from this.
Duan Ling Tian sat down cross-legged as the Wind Concept Fragment appeared out of thin air in his hand. Subsequently, he closed his eyes and comprehended Wind Concept to his heart’s content through the Wind Concept Fragment and the gale that assaulted his face.
“Qing, continue speeding up!” When he saw Duan Ling Tian sit cross-legged there without moving like a mountain and didn’t feel any pressure, Feng Wu Dao spoke out to the Azure Eyed Eagle.
As an experienced person, Feng Wu Dao knew clearly in his heart that only by making Duan Ling Tian feel pressure would it be able to help Duan Ling Tian to a greater degree.
Early on when Duan Ling Tian spoke to the Azure Eyed Eagle, Feng Wu Dao had already guessed that Duan Ling Tian wanted to use this opportunity to comprehend Wind Concept, so he gave Duan Ling Tian a helping push.
The wind grew stronger and stronger.
Gradually, Duan Ling Tian felt his face almost being torn apart.
The strong wind that assaulted his face ceaselessly blew past his ears, and the ear piercing howls of the wind shook his ear drums, causing him to feel extremely uncomfortable.
But he endured it and didn’t make a sound.
He moved his attention to the Wind Concept Fragment in his hand and attempted to forget this uncomfortable feeling.
“This little fellow is really not bad.” Right at this moment, the Azure Eyed Eagle spoke out with words that were filled with praise. “My current speed can be compared to an ordinary fourth level Void Interpretation Stage martial artist flying at full speed, yet he’s still enduring it forcefully. It’s already really good with his current cultivation.”
“Grandpa Qing, why don’t you slow down…?” Feng Tian Wu noticed Duan Ling Tian’s tensed cheeks, and she spoke with a worried expression.
The Azure Eyed Eagle hadn’t replied when the nearby Feng Wu Dao had already spoken. “Qing, continue speeding up… Increase your speed to the extent of being comparable to a fifth level Void Interpretation Stage martial artist.”
As soon as Feng Wu Dao finished speaking and before Feng Tian Wu could react to what had happened, the Azure Eyed Eagle had already sped up once more.
At the same time, waves of vast energy of the heavens and earth appeared between the surrounding clouds and mist and almost tore the clouds and mist apart before finally converging into numerous ancient horned dragon silhouettes.
These ancient horned dragon silhouettes total a number of 70.
The strength of 70 ancient horned dragons.
This was a strength comparable to the full strength of a fifth level Void Interpretation Stage martial artist or demon beast.
