“It’s Senior Brother Chen and Yi!” A voice exclaimed loudly on the vast platform.
At once, all of the Gold Peak disciples on the platform — including those who were fighting — stopped their actions one by one and lifted their heads up to look at the two young men in the air.
At this moment, a hint of respect that originated from the heart could be seen in their eyes.
This pair of twins before them were actually the two strongest people in Gold Peak’s younger generation. They were also the Peak Masters of Gold Peak. In other words, they were the direct disciples of the Sect Leader of the Five Element Sect.
“Senior Brother Chen! Senior Brother Yi!”
“Senior Brother Yi!”
“Senior Brother Chen!”
All of the Gold Peak disciples who were present greeted the two young men unanimously.
The red-clad young man who was known as ‘Senior Brother Yi’ smiled as he waved towards the crowd. He looked very forward and easy-going.
The blue-clad young man who was known as ‘Senior Brother Chen’, on the other hand, stood there expressionlessly like he was indifferent to the surroundings. He looked demure and cool.
However, the crowd of Gold Peak disciples did not mind this at all. It was as if they were already used to it.
Suddenly, the blue-clad young man made his move and disappeared right in front of the group of Gold Peak disciples.
The red-clad young man furrowed his brows. After he smiled at the Gold Peak disciples, he immediately gave chase to him, “Younger brother, I heard that two powerful young men have just joined Wood Peak a few days ago. Have you heard about this before?”
The blue-clad young man did not respond. However, his pair of calm eyes undoubtedly conveyed his answer to the red-clad young man.
“I’ve also heard that… Elder He Gang from Wood Peak was forced to cripple his entire cultivation base by those two young powerhouses!” The red-clad young man continued.
The blue-clad young man still did not show any signs of responding. The expression he had on his face was like everyone in this world owed him money.
However, the red-clad young man did not seem to be discouraged by this and showed no signs of shutting his mouth. Instead, he continued to talk to the blue-clad young man. He talked all by himself without showing any signs of impatience.
Time passed by soundlessly.
The Battle of the Five Peaks was slowly drawing nearer.
The Battle of the Five Peaks was a tradition that ran in the Five Element Sect. It would be held every three years and only the disciples from the younger generation of each Peak were eligible to take part.
At the end of the battle, the Peak would be ranked according to the performance of every Peak’s disciples.
The higher the ranking was, the more cultivation resources — such as the Origin Stone or medicinal pills — the Peak would get in the next three years.
The lower the ranking was, the fewer cultivation resources the Peak would get.
After a series of benign and vicious cycles, the gap between the five Peaks of the Five Element Sect was quite distinct from each other. The Wood Peak that had been at the bottom for the past twenty years was even worse. It had never recovered after its setback.
The first step that the Wood Peak had to take to get out of that dump was to get rid of the fate of being at the bottom every time and then slowly regain its glory from the past.
In the past, even the people from Wood Peak already knew what the outcome would be before the Battle of the Five Peaks even took place.
That was — the Wood Peak would definitely come out last again.
However, the addition of two new young powerhouses to Wood Peak had added a lot of uncertainties to the outcome.
For this reason, all the other four Peaks had their eyes on Wood Peak in this period of time.
They were all curious.
Would the two newly joined young powerhouses be able to help Wood Peak regain its glory?
In the three-story pavilion, the door to the room on the top floor opened.
A young man dressed in purple walked out from the room to the pavilion balcony. A smile could be seen playing on his lips as he stared at the endless blue sky and white clouds before him with narrowed eyes.
“Looks like I’ve underestimated the medicinal power of the Rebirth Pill!”
A hint of excitement swept across Duan Ling Tian’s eyes as he recalled his experience earlier..
“However, this Rebirth Pill’s medicinal power is truly amazing… I’ve used it for so long, and it turns out that I’ve only consumed a little of it. The remaining medicinal power will certainly help me make a breakthrough to the Martial Monarch Stage!” Duan Ling Tian said to himself.
“Unfortunately, my cultivation base is too low at the moment… The speed in which I consume the Rebirth Pill is far slower than the spirit fruit.”
He let out a sigh.
Although his cultivation speed was still rising rapidly with the help of the Rebirth Pill’s medicinal power, the elevation speed was still slower than the speed he gained after consuming the spirit fruit due to the limitation of his cultivation base.
Just like the Origin Enhancing Fruit that he had consumed recently, the medicinal efficacy of that fruit was entirely absorbed in just a few days under the guidance of the supercilious medicinal power of the Rebirth Pill.
Moreover, quite a lot of medicinal power from the Rebirth Pill was also drawn out by the Origin Enhancing Fruit’s medicinal power, and it allowed him to absorb it.
“With my ultimate innate talent, coupled with the medicinal power of the Rebirth Pill, nobody will be able to catch up to me if they don’t consume any spirit fruit!”
Of course, Duan Ling Tian also knew that this was unrealistic. “Perhaps… I need to think of a way to get an assorted variety of spirit fruits to assist me in my cultivation. In this case, not only will the spirit fruit be able to help elevate my cultivation base rapidly, it can also help draw out the Rebirth Pill’s medicinal force so that I can absorb more of it.”
“As long as I have a huge amount of spirit fruits to consume… who’ll be able to cultivate faster than me in the Cloud Continent?!”
Duan Ling Tian believed that as long as he could get his hands on more spirit fruit, coupled with the medicinal power of the Rebirth Pill inside his body, he would be able to surpass the young powerhouses in the Foreign Lands who had consumed spirit fruits since they were young.
“After coming out from the secret that the Martial Emperor left behind and being united with Tian Wu and the others, I should also start planning for my future!”
Duan Ling Tian continued, “I want to make a breakthrough to the Void Transformation in the shortest time possible! Then, I’ll go get myself a rough map of the Cloud Continent and locate the northern desert. After that, I’ll find the place where the Rebirth Martial Emperor left behind his huge treasure!”
“Big Brother Duan!”
A voice suddenly rang by Duan Ling Tian’s ears. It made him return to his senses instantly.
Duan Lin Tian did not know when, but Ye Xuan was already by his side.
Duan Ling Tian looked at her. His Spiritual Energy instinctively extended out, and he immediately noticed the changes in her, “Little Xuan, you… y-you actually made a breakthrough to the Ninth Level Nascent Soul?”
Duan Ling Tian was astonished.
Just a month ago, Ye Xuan had just made her breakthrough to the Eight Level Nascent Soul. However, she had made another breakthrough again.
Ye Xuan chuckled and replied promptly, “Big Brother Duan, it’s all thanks to you that I’m able to break through so fast! If you did not help me to clean the impurities, I won’t be able to possess such an incredible innate talent.”
“Well, I did help you to improve your innate talent, but it has never occurred to me that you’ll make such a huge progress!” Duan Ling Tian exclaimed.
“Big Brother Duan, I saw you staring off into the distance dazedly earlier. What’re you thinking about?” Ye Xuan asked curiously.
“Nope, nothing.” Duan Ling Tian shook his head and immediately looked at her with a smile, “Little Xuan, you’ll most likely be able to make a breakthrough to the Void Prying Stage in within three months with the cultivation speed that you currently possess.”
Only martial artists who had stepped into the Void could be considered as a real true martial artist.
Once a person had reached the Void, he would be able to walk on air and roam the sky.
“My target is to make a breakthrough in two months!” Ye Xuan was full of confidence as she continued to add, “Alright Big Brother Duan, it’s time for me to go back and continue my cultivation now!” Just as she finished her sentence, she quickly left in haste.
“What a hasty little girl!” Duan Ling Tian smiled bitterly.
After regaining his senses, Duan Ling Tian muttered to himself, “Looks like the Battle of the Five Peaks is about to take place soon huh?”
He knew that after the Battle of the Five Peaks, he would definitely become one of the young representatives of the Five Element Sect. He would have to go to the Martial Emperor’s secret to retrieve the things that the Five Element Sect needed.
After all, the Five Element Sect was also one of the three major forces in the east side of the northern desert.
The more valuable items would be spirit weapons that were higher than grade two, the Concept Fragment that was above the seventh level and the priceless Profundity Fragment.
Since this secret was something that was left behind by a Martial Emperor powerhouse, there were no doubts that there would be quite a number of these things there.
“By the time I come out from the Martial Emperor powerhouse’s secret and meet up with Tian Wu and the rest, I’ll leave Wood Peak and the Five Element Sect. This time, I’ll give my all no matter what and strive to gain the best benefits for Wood Peak in the Battle of the Five Peaks!”
“This will be my repayment to the Peak Master of Wood Peak for that Origin Enhancing Fruit,” Duan Ling Tian said to himself.
In the next few days, Duan Ling Tian continued to cultivate and at the same time, earnestly learned the Wind and Thunder Concepts. He even successfully made more breakthroughs in the end.
Under the anticipation of the Five Element Sect’s Five Peaks’ disciples, The Battle of the Five Peak finally raised its curtain.
The Battle of the Five Peaks did not have a specific venue. Instead, it was directly held in the air at the powerful Gold Peak in the Five Element Sect where it was possible for all the Peaks’ disciples to demonstrate their full potential.
Early in the morning, the space outside of Gold Peak was filled with people that had great strength and vigor.
When Duan Ling Tian, Huang Daniu, and Chen Wei arrived, they were also taken aback by the scene before their eyes. What entered their sight was a densely packed crowd.
“It’s Chen Wei! Chen Wei from Wood Peak!”
Soon enough, some disciples from the other Peaks recognized Chen Wei.
Chen Wei used to be one of the most outstanding disciples in the younger generation from Wood Peak. Many people knew who he was.
“The purple-clad young man and that towering young man beside Chen Wei seems to be a little unfamiliar.”
Many people started to notice Duan Ling Tian and Huang Daniu who were by Chen Wei’s side.
“C-Could it be that… they are ‘Duan Ling Tian’ and ‘Huang Daniu’?” A voice exclaimed loudly. Instantly, all of the Five Element Sect’s disciples in the sky turned their heads towards them and stared at the two of them.
In no time at all, the two of them became the center of attention for ten thousands of people.
“Are they the two young powerhouses that Wood Peak just took in not long ago?”
“I heard that when they first joined the Wood Peak, they immediately got rid of that Luo Chen in Wood Peak. Apart from that, they even forced Luo Chen’s teacher, He Gang, to cripple his entire cultivation base with his own hands.”
“He Gang is one of the top elders in Wood Peak, and his cultivation base is at the Sixth Level Void Transformation! In order to welcome these two and persuade them to stay in Wood Peak, he was willing to sacrifice his entire cultivation base!”
“Looks like Elder He really has a lot of faith in their strength.”
“I’m more interested in seeing if the Wood Peak would be able to change their fate of always coming out last in today’s Battle of the Five Peaks!”
All of the disciples of the Five Element Sect had their gazes fixed on both Duan Ling Tian and Huang Daniu as the discussion continued to go on.
