“The Peak Master asked me to get you and Daniu,” Chen Wei smiled.
“The Peak Master’s looking for us?” Duan Ling Tian was startled. Had it been two weeks already?
“Yes,” Chen Wei nodded. “We’re all waiting for you and Daniu. Once the both of you are ready, we’ll make our way to Gold Peak to meet with the other four Peak Masters and their young disciples.”
“We? Are you going too?” Duan Ling Tian was surprised.
“It’s not just me. There are another three Wood Peak disciples who’ll be coming along too,” Chen Wei smiled. “Although I’ve no idea where we are headed, six of us are allowed to participate since Wood Peak is the First Peak of the Five Element Sect. The quota for rest of the Peaks is not as many as ours. To be honest, that’s not bad at all.”
“Wood Peak is allowed to bring six people? And the other Peaks are not allowed to?” Duan Ling Tian raised his brows. It had never crossed his mind that there would be so many people from Wood Peak coming along. At the same time, he was curious about how many people were allowed to come along from the other Peaks.
“Yes,” Chen Wei nodded his head again. “This time, the number of people allowed to come along is allocated based on the Five Peaks’ ranking. Wood Peak is the First Peak, so we can bring six people; Gold Peak is the Second Peak, and they can bring five people; Fire Peak, which is also the Third Peak, can bring four people; and Water Peak can bring three people because they’re the Fourth Peak; and finally, the Earth Peak which is the Last Peak can only bring two people.” Chen Wei said in one breath.
“This means that this time, there’ll be a total of twenty young disciples going with the five Peak Masters?” Duan Ling Tian raised his brows and muttered to himself.
“I’ll call Daniu, and we’ll meet with Peak Master and the rest after that.”After he had told Duan Ling Tian this, Chen Wei proceeded to the bottom story of the three-story pavilion and knocked on Huang Daniu’s door to call him out.
When Huang Daniu came out of his room, his face was ruddy, and he was in a very good mood.
After Huang Daniu greeted Chen Wei, he immediately shifted his glance to Duan Ling Tian who was hovering in the air. He grinned as he asked confidently, “Duan Ling Tian, shall we have a practice match?”
Upon hearing Huang Daniu’s words, Duan Ling Tian narrowed his eyes and asked curiously, “How do you want to do it?”
“How about we do it like this? I won’t borrow the Earth Energy, and you’re not allowed to use the Wind Concept. Let us battle without our weapons. How about that?” Huang Daniu’s eyes were gleaming brightly, he was itching for a fight.
“Daniu, you dare to challenge me huh? Looks like your breakthrough this time must be quite impressive,” Duan Ling Tian smiled.
“So? Do you dare or not?” A bright smile crept up on Huang Daniu’s face. His tone was full of provocation.
“Why not? However, I think it’s better if we go slightly further away. Let’s not disturb Little Xuan’s cultivation,” Duan Ling Tian answered without fear. At the same time, he looked at the master bedroom in the second story of the three-story pavilion. A hint of warmth swept across his eyes.
Without any warning, he flew out and made his way to the distant horizon.
Duan Ling Tian gradually turned into a small black dot before Huang Daniu and Chen Wei’s eyes. They were both hovering in the sky.
“As expected of you, Duan Ling Tian! What a straightforward person!” The smile on Huang Daniu’s face turned wider. All the same, he flew out and followed Duan Ling Tian.
“These two fellows… The Peak Master’s waiting for the both of you,” Chen Wei smiled wryly and shook his head before following their footsteps as well.
In the sky, Duan Ling Tian and Huang Daniu stood across each other as they stared directly into each other’s eyes. Their bodies were emanating an intense battle aura as if it was about to explode at any time.
Huang Daniu glared at Duan Ling Tian. The atmosphere was tensed as if he was facing a great enemy.
As for Duan Ling Tian, he appeared very calm and collected. His gaze was tranquil as if he did not see Huang Daniu as a threat to himself at all.
Naturally, in his opinion, he really did not see Huang Daniu as a threat at all.
When Huang Daniu first came out of his room, his keen Spiritual Energy immediately probed Huang Daniu’s cultivation and found out that he was at the Eighth Level Void Interpretation.
Eighth Level Void Interpretation with a Ninth Level Intermediate Earth Concept.
This was Huang Daniu’s current strength.
“Daniu, bring it on,” Duan Ling Tian smiled.
Huang Daniu saw how at ease Duan Ling Tian was at the moment. It was apparent that Duan Ling Tian did not think too highly of him. With his eyes narrowed, he warned in a deep voice, “Duan Ling Tian, you better be careful. I’m no longer the Huang Daniu from two weeks ago!”
“Bring it on,” Duan Ling Tian nodded his head. The smile on his face did not waver at all.
When Huang Daniu saw this, his face darkened instantly.
Although Duan Ling Tian was his friend, he could not suppress the anger that was rising from his heart upon seeing Duan Ling Tian’s low regard for him. He could not contain his temper anymore.
“Ahh!” Without any warning, Huang Daniu roared out loud. The Origin Energy on his body instantly burst out and merged with the Earth Concept that was rolling out. It transformed into waves of khaki energy.
A small part of the khaki energy solidified into form beneath his feet, forming a thick stone platform.
The moment the stone platform appeared, Huan Daniu’s legs leaped up like a running cheetah before he landed on the stone platform. He cracked the stone platform into pieces before it was turned into dust by the vast energy.
In the next moment, a gust of vast rolling air blasted out and transformed into a hurricane that blew in all directions with the cracked stone platform in the center. It was so windy that Chen Wei, who was standing at the side, could not help but squint his eyes as well.
The robe on Chen Wei’s body began to billow from the strong wind.
At this moment, Chen Wei could not help but narrow his eyes when he saw Huang Daniu’s blurry figure charging towards Duan Ling Tian. He was stunned for a moment.
“Since when did Daniu become so strong?” Before Chen Wei could make out the scene in front, he immediately saw the 210 silhouettes of ancient horned dragons that appeared above Huang Daniu’s head. He gaped in astonishment.
Without any spirit weapon, he managed to display 210 ancient horned dragons’ silhouettes. He knew very well what this meant.
A martial artist who was at the Eighth Level Void Interpretation could easily demonstrate the Ninth Level Void Interpretation Concept.
A martial artist who was at the Ninth Level Void Interpretation could easily demonstrate the Eighth Level Void Interpretation Concept too.
If another middle-aged powerhouse from Wood Peak demonstrated this kind of strength, he would not be surprised at all.
However, the person who was demonstrating this strength at this moment was none other than Huang Daniu.
The Huang Daniu who only demonstrated the strength of Sixth Level Void Interpretation cultivation base with a Sixth Level Void Interpretation Concept almost a month ago!
Compared to the Huang Daniu from before, the Huang Daniu now had completely transformed into another person. It gave him a strange and unfamiliar feeling.
Before he even regained his senses, another loud noise resonated in the air.
At the same time, an even more terrifying flurry of airwaves swept out and set off a hurricane. It blew and forced him to retreat a few meters back.
What had just happened?
Chen Wei opened his eyes with a great effort. Soon, he noticed the two figures that had clashed in the distance.
At this moment, the two of them were each punching out a fist.
Originally, the two people in front could be considered as his acquaintances, but right now, he felt like he had only just met these two people for the first time.
Other than the huge, tall young man who had 210 silhouettes of ancient horned dragons above his head, the other purple-clad young man had another 220 silhouettes of ancient horned dragons above his head.
The strength of 220 ancient horned dragons
A martial artist who was at the Ninth Level Void Interpretation who possessed a Ninth Level Void Interpretation Concept!
“Duan Ling Tian, he…” Chen Wei was so shocked that his mouth was wide open. When he saw the purple figure in the distant, he was completely taken aback. He was unable to recover his senses for a long time.
Another loud sound reverberated in the air, and it took Chen Wei by surprise. He could not help but shudder at the sound.
He could clearly see the dense purple thunderbolts that were intertwined with Duan Ling Tian’s fist swept out in the sky and easily overrode the khaki energy that surrounded Huang Daniu’s fist.
In the next second, Duan Ling Tian’s body leaned forward. As for Huang Daniu, he was sent flying by that one fist like an arrow that left the bowstring.
“Barf!” Huang Daniu who was sent flying was completely flushed in the face. The vital energy and blood in his body swelled up, and he immediately spat out a mouthful of blood.
A moment later, Huang Daniu finally managed to brace himself after being sent flying several dozens of meters away. His injury finally healed more or less after he took the wound-curing medicine.
Naturally, this was also because Duan Ling Tian had shown a little mercy earlier. Otherwise, it would be impossible for Huang Daniu to suffer only minor injuries.
“Duan Ling Tian, you freak! Monster! You’ve actually broken through to the Ninth Level Void Interpretation! Just with that two spirit fruits? Did they really contain so much medicinal efficacy?” Huang Daniu who had finally returned to his senses could not help but scold loudly. However, as soon as he reached the end of his sentence, the volume of his voice lowered as well.
He dared to challenge Duan Ling Tian earlier because he thought he had understood the medicinal efficacy of the two spirit fruits that Qi Yu, the Peak Master of Wood Peak, had given them.
In his opinion, Duan Ling Tian’s cultivation base had only managed to achieve a breakthrough to the Seventh Level Void Interpretation in the Battle of the Five Peaks a month ago.
Even if Duan Ling Tian had completely absorbed and digested the two spirit fruits’ medicinal efficacies, the most he could go up to was the Eighth Level Void Interpretation. It was impossible for him to make a breakthrough to the Ninth Level Void Interpretation.
However, the strength that Duan Ling Tian demonstrated today had made him deeply aware of how wrong and ridiculous his previous thoughts were!
“Did you think I didn’t make a breakthrough to the Ninth Level Void Interpretation?” When Duan Ling Tian heard Huang Daniu’s words, he could not help but be a little stunned.
“Of course!” Huang Daniu replied gruffly, “If I had known earlier that you’ve already made a breakthrough to the Ninth Level Void Interpretation, I would’ve never fought with you in the first place! I’m not a masochist okay!”
As he said this, Huang Daniu turned glum immediately.
When Duan Ling Tian saw the glum look on Huang Daniu’s face, he burst out laughing instantly. His laugh was as brilliant as the sun.
“Duan Ling Tian, Daniu, w-when did you become s-so strong?” Chen Wei flew forward and stared at them with his mouth agape.
“Your Void Interpretation Concepts managed to make a breakthrough to the Ninth Level in the Profound Assimilation Formation? And Duan Ling Tian, you actually comprehended the Thunder Concept?” Chen Wei was completely filled with curiosity and bewilderment at this moment.
“That’s right! Our Concepts were broken through in the Profound Assimilation Formation. However, my Intermediate Earth Concept has been elevated to the Ninth Level in the Profound Assimilation Formation. That’s three freaking level of elevation, you know!” Huang Daniu grinned.
“So, are you saying that you’ve now comprehended the Ninth Level Intermediate Earth concept?” Chen Wei’s eyes were as wide as saucers as he stared at Huang Daniu. His face was completely filled with amazement.
Although he had heard that the Profound Assimilation Formation was not something simple, it had never crossed his mind that its strength would be so terrifying to the extent that it raised Huang Daniu’s Sixth Level Intermediate Earth Concept three levels up in just a go.
