“This means the Profound Assimilation Formation has good eyes and knows that I, Brother Niu, is a man of great potential! As for that Hu Fei, he’s just an ungrateful bastard. Perhaps that’s why the Profound Assimilation Formation turned its nose up at the sight of him!” Huang Daniu grinned happily. The moment his gaze landed on Hu Fei, it immediately turned cold.
“Barf!” Hu Fei, who had just wiped the blood off his mouth, became so distressed that he spat out another mouthful of blood the second he heard Huang Daniu’s words. His face was horrendously pale.
‘Huang Daniu! You’re going to hell!” Cha Bai’s face instantly darkened. A wave of majestic aura emanated out of his body and swept out instantly. It pressed down on Huang Daniu without any warning.
Unfortunately, it was already blown away before his aura managed to reach Huang Daniu.
A figure appeared in front of Huang Daniu. It was none other than the Peak Master of Wood Peak — Qi Yu.
The second Duan Ling Tian saw Qi Yu materialized in front of Huang Daniu, he immediately heard a loud sound resonating in the air. What he saw next was Cha Bai being sent flying backward like an arrow that left the bowstring before he smashed through the wall of the palace and disappeared before his eyes.
A huge hole immediately appeared on the wall.
“Qi Yu!” A cry that was filled with rage echoed from behind the wall. What followed next was a dusty Cha Bai who returned to the palace. He glared at Qi Yu viciously. However, he did not make any move at all.
“Scram!” When Qi Yu saw how audacious Cha Bai was to make his way back again, he glared fiercely at him. Qi Yu was as terrifying as the Buddha’s warrior attendant, and his deterrent force was very obvious.
Cha Bai’s face darkened. He eventually bit his lips and brought Hu Fei and the other Fire Peak disciple to leave the palace together. They disappeared before everyone’s eyes.
“Duan Ling Tian, what’s the level of your Thunder Concept? Why don’t you show it to all of us?” Guo Chong asked Duan Ling Tian.
As for the things that had happened earlier, he acted like he did not see anything at all. In other words, he had chosen to ignore them.
Upon hearing Guo Chong’s words, everybody’s gaze moved to Duan Ling Tian immediately.
This time, among the ten young talents who had come out of the Profound Assimilation Formation, apart from Hu Fei who made no progress at all, Huang Daniu and Nangong Chen both had made great progress.
Before Huang Daniu entered the Profound Assimilation Formation, he had only comprehended the Sixth Level Intermediate Earth Concept. However, when he came out of it, he had already made it to the Ninth Level Intermediate Earth Concept. Even Duan Ling Tian could not help but feel shocked over this matter.
Huang Daniu’s progress had far exceeded his expectations.
‘Or perhaps, Daniu’s body is well suited to the Earth Concept… Therefore, his comprehension of the Earth Concept is far better than other people,’ Duan Ling Tian could only come up with this answer after he ransacked the two reincarnations of the Rebirth Martial Emperor’s memories.
Before Nangong Chen entered the Profound Assimilation Formation, he had already comprehended the Eight Level Intermediate Earth Concept. When he came out, he had already reached the First Level Advance Earth Concept.
Although his Earth Concept was only raised by two levels, the strength that he managed to elevate was far beyond Huang Daniu.
That was a matter of course!
The First Level Advance Earth Concept was far stronger than the Ninth Level Intermediate Earth Concept by 100 ancient horned dragons. The two of them were not on the same level at all.
However, at this moment, be it Huang Daniu or Nangong Chen, both of them had their eyes fixed on Duan Ling Tian.
“Looks like I have no other choice but to show my strength today.” When Duan Ling Tian saw the situation before his eyes, he laughed wryly to himself.
Under everyone’s watchful eyes, the air surrounding Duan Ling Tian suddenly surged and streaks of thunderbolts that resembled purple electrical snakes appeared immediately. It was streaks of solidified thunderbolts!
The thunderbolts kept increasing in number and continuously clashed with each other. It created a series of low thunderous sound.
That was the Thunder Concept!
Boom! Boom! Boom! Boom! Boom!
A series of thunder resonated in the air, the purple thunderbolts around Duan Ling Tian also formed layers of electrical webs that shrouded his entire being. It made him look like a Thunder God.
The Thunder God had descended on Earth, and every corner of Earth would shake in fear!
The Heaven and Earth Energy above Duan Ling Tian’s head whirled, and the Heaven and Earth Phenomenon gradually solidified into form. Silhouettes of ancient horned dragons began to emerge, and it was reflected in everybody’s eyes.
The number of the ancient horned dragons kept increasing.
Soon after, the number finally stopped increasing.
“It’s the strength of 100 ancient horned dragons! Ninth Level Intermediate Thunder Concept!” When Huang Daniu saw the 100 silhouettes of ancient horned dragons in the sky, he could not help but exclaim in surprise.
The Ninth Level Intermediate Thunder Concept!
Everybody instantly focused their eyes on Duan Ling Tian again. Apart from astonishment in the depth of their eyes, there was only more astonishment.
The purple-clad young man before them appeared to be only around twenty five years old. His real age did not exceed thirty at all. A martial artist who was barely in his thirties but had already comprehended the Ninth Level Void Interpretation Concept.
Although the Profound Assimilation Formation did help, his comprehension could be considered as very good in a first-class and second-class sect, let alone a third-class sect like the Five Element Sect.
“Wow, this is really unexpected. Not only does Duan Ling Tian possess that unpredictable innate ability, he even has such a good comprehension when it comes to Concept as well!”
“It’s no surprise! He’s a Variant after all! I heard that a Variant who possesses an innate ability like Duan Ling Tian is also known as God’s Favorite, you know.”
“God’s Favorite? The name really fits Duan Ling Tian like a glove!”
The four Water and Earth Peak disciples, including Tian Zhen and Tan Huan, exclaimed in surprise.
Even Tian Gu, the Peak Master of Earth Peak, and Yu Fang, the Peak Master of Water Peak, were not an exception. At this moment, their gaze that was trained on Duan Ling Tian was filled with a hint of complicated look.
How good would it be if he was a disciple of their Earth or Water Peak instead?
However, a dream was always beautiful while the reality was always harsh.
‘Wood Peak really lucked out this time,’ With a tacit understanding, the two of them thought secretly to themselves.
“Duan Ling Tian, what’s the level of your Thunder Concept before you entered the Profound Assimilation Formation?” Qi Yu asked curiously as he looked at Duan Ling Tian.
Everybody, including Guo Chong, instantly shifted their eyes towards Duan Ling Tian. They were curious about this as well.
“Seventh Level,” A glimpse of brilliance flashed across Duan Ling Tian’s eyes.
“Haha…” The moment Duan Ling Tian’s words left his mouth, Huang Daniu laughed out loud. “Duan Ling Tian, you’re much better than me in every single aspect. However, this time, it looks like you didn’t gain as many benefits as I, Brother Niu, did in the Profound Assimilation Formation! Before your Brother Niu, I, entered the Profound Assimilation Formation, my comprehension was at the Sixth Level Intermediate Earth Concept. After I came out, I’m now at the Ninth Level Intermediate Earth Concept!” Huang Daniu grinned widely when he reached the end of his sentence.
Ever since he met with Duan Ling Tian, he was always a step behind Duan Ling Tian. It made him feel a little dejected. He finally had an opportunity to sit on Duan Ling Tian’s head now. He was absolutely overjoyed from the bottom of his heart.
When Duan Ling Tian saw how Huang Daniu was blowing his own trumpet in front of him, Duan Ling Tian merely rolled his eyes at him. He did not bother paying him any attention at all. If Huang Daniu found out that he was only at the Elementary Thunder Concept before he entered the Profound Assimilation Formation, who knew what his expression would be like.
Of course, Duan Ling Tian would not expose himself just like that.
Becoming rich while staying silent was the most virtuous way after all!
Due to Huang Daniu’s playful antics, the gazes that were on Duan Ling Tian slowly shifted away. He was no longer in the limelight.
Although it was considered quite good being able to elevate his Seventh Level Thunder Concept two levels higher after entering the Profound Assimilation Formation, they thought Duan Ling Tian was still far behind compared to Huang Daniu and Nangong Chen’s progress.
Of course, this was because none of them knew about the real changes that happened to Duan Ling Tian. If they had found out about it, they would most probably stand there dumbfounded the entire day.
“The Profound Assimilation Formation is really weird this time. First, it ran continuously for 60 hours. After that, there’s actually someone who did not benefit from it at all,” Guo Chong knitted his brows together. He kept feeling like this matter was a little fishy.
“Perhaps, the reason why the Profound Assimilation Formation ran for 60 continuous hours is related to Hu Fei? After all, out of the ten people who entered the Profound Assimilation Formation, Hu Fei’s the only one that had a problem. It’s like he entered the Profound Assimilation Formation for no reason at all!” Tian Gu voiced out his speculation.
“Yeah, I think this is very likely,” Yu Fang nodded her head in agreement.
“Indeed,” Qi Yu agreed as well.
The corners of Duan Ling Tian’s mouth unconsciously twitched a little upon hearing the words from the four Peak Masters.
He did not expect Hu Fei would somehow become his scapegoat. If Hu Fei found out about the truth, he would most likely be so aggravated that he would throw up at least three liters of blood until he died from lack of blood!
“Alright, let us call it a day. We’ll depart on time two weeks later,” Guo Chong added.
The moment the words left his mouth, he swept a glance at Qi Yu, Tian Gu and Yu Fang. It was apparent that his last sentence was aimed towards the three of them. The three of them nodded their heads before leading their disciples back to their own Peaks.
“Are we going to the secret place that the Martial Emperor left behind in two weeks time?” Perhaps the Five Element Sect’s young disciples, including Huang Daniu, had no idea what the words ‘we depart in two weeks’ uttered by Guo Chong meant, but Duan Ling Tian definitely knew what it meant.
This time, the reason why Five Element Sect was so generous that they opened the Profound Assimilation Formation was undoubtedly for the sake of the secret treasure that the Martial Emperor had left behind.
There was something in the secret treasure that the Five Element Sect wanted urgently!
The thing that the Five Element Sect wanted the most was undoubtedly the Profundity Fragment that might be hidden in the Martial Emperor’s secret treasure. It was the key to breaking through to the Martial Monarch stage for a Peak Void powerhouse.
On the way back to Wood Peak, Qi Yu lifted up a hand and brought out four pieces of spirit fruit. “These four spirit fruits here are the cultivation resources that we obtained from the sect resources after Wood Peak became the First Peak of the Five Element Sect. I have two pieces of two different types here. It’s just right for the two of you to take one each.”
The four spirit fruits were composed of two different types, and there were two pieces each.
One of was fully blue in color. It emitted a blue luster that gives off a faint fragrant scent.
The other one was green in color. Its body was covered in red tiny lines that were interlaced with each other.
“Blue Origin Fruit? Blood Stained Fruit?”
The instance Duan Ling Tian saw these two fruits, his eyes darkened instantly. A look of joy appeared on his face.
After he had gone through the memories of the Rebirth Martial Emperor, he immediately recognized the two spirit fruits. They were both spirit fruits that were exclusive to a Void Interpretation martial artist
The medicinal efficacy was not inferior to the Origin Enhancing Fruit that he and Huang Daniu had consumed before.
“Wow, everything is going smoothly according to my wish!” Duan Ling Tian’s eyes lit up at once.
