Chapter 922: For the Sake of Profundity Fragment!
Translator: EndlessFantasy Translation Editor: EndlessFantasy Translation
Northern desert, the southwest region.
Swoosh! Swoosh! Swoosh! Swoosh! Swoosh!
Figures flew from the northeast with an extremely fast speed. They passed through the clouds in the sky and left a visible ‘sky road’.
A group of people was led by three middle-aged men, an old man, and a middle-aged woman with twenty people following closely behind. All twenty of them were young men and women. None of them was over forty years old.
“We’re arriving soon.” The middle-aged man who was leading the group was none other than Guo Chong, the Sect Leader of Five Element Sect. When he withdrew his gaze from afar, he also began to slow down his speed.
The rest of the people immediately slowed down as well.
“We’ve arrived?” The twenty young people behind him were stunned.
“It has already been more than a month since the day of our departure. We’ll be arriving at our destination soon!” Guo Chong’s voice was transmitted to all of their ears.
“We’re really arriving soon?” Duan Ling Tian was following behind as he slowed down his speed as well. The instance he heard Guo Chong’s words, his eyes lit up.
Huang Daniu looked at Duan Ling Tian as he spoke to Duan Ling Tian through Voice Transmission, “Duan Ling Tian, we’ll arrive at the Martial Emperor’s secret treasure soon. At that time, you and I will join forces and there’s no need for us to worry about not being able to get the treasures that were left behind by the Martial Emperor!”
Duan Ling Tian was rendered speechless by Huang Daniu’s brazenness.
‘Do I really need to join forces with the others? Even if I really want to join forces with the others, I’ll never choose this guy. Nangong Chen from Gold Peak is more suitable okay?!’
Nangong Chen’s current cultivation base must have already broken through to the Ninth Level Void Interpretation. Similar to his First Level Advance Earth Concept, his strength was extremely strong as well. Duan Ling Tian was the only person he was second to among the younger generation in the Five Element Sect.
Duan Ling Tian had no doubts that Nangong Chen could make a breakthrough to the Ninth Level Void Interpretation. After all, the two spirit fruits that he had consumed previously were issued by the Five Element Sect in a unified manner.
Wood Peak received four while Gold Peak received three. Out of the three that Gold Peak received, at least two must have been given to Nangong Chen.
“Throughout this journey, I’m sure all of you must have been curious about the destination. I’m going to tell you about it now,” Guo Chong’s voice continued to resonate. The group of Five Element Sect’s disciples’ eyes lit up immediately, apart from Duan Ling Tian and Huang Daniu. Even Nangong Chen was not an exception.
The moment Duan Ling Tian heard this, he lifted his brows at once. He knew that Guo Chong was going to tell them about the Martial Emperor’s secret treasure.
“The place that we’re heading to this time is the secret treasure that the Martial Emperor left behind!” Guo Chong’s words entered their ears clearly.
Other than the four Peak Masters, Duan Ling Tian and Huang Daniu who looked very calm, the rest of the Five Element Sect’s disciples were stunned for a moment before chaos broke out among them.
“Secret treasure that was left behind by a Martial Emperor?”
“My goodness! I wonder how many treasures are contained in the Martial Emperor’s secret treasure! It must have all sorts of things like the Ninth Level Concept Fragments, grade one spirit weapon, or grade one medicinal pill right?”
“I knew it! I knew it certainly won’t be for some trivial matter that the Sect Leader and the four Peak Masters personally took us out this time! It’s just that it did not cross my mind that the Sect Leader and the four Peak Masters would bring us to the Martial Emperor’s secret treasure”
The group of young Five Element Sect’s disciples discussed animatedly. Their faces were filled with excitement.
Even the Nangong twins were not an exception.
Nangong Yi looked eager, and his eyes were shining brilliantly. Nangong Chen, on the other hand, still had a cold and aloof look on his face, but his eyes that were gleaming brightly undoubtedly betrayed his mood at the moment.
“According to the news that I received, the Martial Emperor’s secret treasure was left behind when he was close to his death. All of his inheritance is inside, and they’re waiting for the right person from the future to take them!” When Guo Chong was announcing this, his tone became slightly higher than usual.
How could the inheritance that was left behind by a Martial Emperor be something ordinary?
Even he who held the Sect Master position in the Five Element Sect could not contain his excitement.
“Inheritance?” The moment Duan Ling Tian heard this, his heart gave a sudden jolt.
Although he already knew beforehand that they were going to the Martial Emperor’s secret treasure, he thought that it was merely some games that were created by a Martial Emperor when he was feeling bored.
However, it looked like this was not the case at all.
Without a doubt, it did not matter if it was a game or inheritance that was left behind by a Martial Emperor. They would both contain some items that people would fight to the death over. However, it was obvious the latter would contain a much valuable treasure.
This was because the latter might contain the wealth that had been accumulated by the Martial Emperor during his entire life. It was enough to make any force, or anyone, in the Cloud Continent to turn green over it.
“I’m really getting more and more excited about it!” Duan Ling Tian’s eyes shone brightly as he muttered to himself.
At the same time, after they heard Guo Chong’s words, the group of young Five Element Sect’s disciples’ breath began to quicken.
The inheritance from a Martial Emperor?
What did that mean?
“The inheritance that was left behind by a Martial Emperor is all of the wealth accumulated by him during his life. Whoever obtains it would definitely soar up to the sky!”
“I can’t wait to go now!”
“However, since it’s the inheritance left by a Martial Emperor, why did the five Peak Masters bring us along with them? Wouldn’t it be better if they bring the sect elders with them to take the treasures?”
“Could it be that there’s some reason behind it?”
The group of Five Element Sect disciples buried their heads together in a heated discussion. Eventually, one by one they slowly looked towards Guo Chong, the Sect Leader of the Five Element Sect, and the other four Peak Masters with a questioning look on their faces.
“This time, the Martial Emperor’s secret treasure that we’re headed to is filled with all sorts of tests that were left behind by the Martial Emperor. We’ll have to enter the secret treasure ourselves to search for them if we want to get the treasures that were left behind!” Naturally, Guo Chong heard the discussions of the Five Element Sect’s disciples. Slowly, he continued to explain, “We brought all of you here because the gate of that place is covered with an Inscription Formation! That Inscription Formation only allows those who are below forty to enter the place. If we force our way in, the Martial Emperor’s secret treasure will collapse immediately. Now, do you understand the reason why I brought all of you here?”
Guo Chong’s words entered the ears of the Five Element Sect’s disciples.
Other than Duan Ling Tian and Huang Daniu who were already prepared, the other eighteen people could not help but be taken aback.
However, they grasped the situation completely after listening to Guo Chong’s explanation.
It was not because the Sect Leader and the four Peak Masters refused to bring the sect elders with them. It was because none of the sect senior officials, including themselves, were able to enter the Martial Emperor’s secret treasure.
Only young people below the age of forty like them could enter the Martial Emperor’s secret treasure.
“Furthermore, the Five Element Sect is not the only one who knows about the Martial Emperor’s secret treasure. As far as I know, the four major forces in the southern district of the northern desert also know about the existence of the Martial Emperor’s secret treasure. When the Martial Emperor’s secret treasure opens its gate, they’ll definitely bring the best young disciples they have as well.” When Guo Chong announced this, his face turned glum immediately.
“In other words, apart from the twenty of you who’ll enter the Martial Emperor’s secret treasure, the best young disciples from the four major forces in the southern district of the northern desert will enter with all of you as well. As for what’s going to happen inside, I’m sure you can guess it already. For this reason, all of you must be mentally prepared for it,” Guo Chong finished in one breath.
“The four major forces of the northern desert also know about the existence of the Martial Emperor’s secret treasure?”
“Oh, Lord! If the young disciples of the four major forces enter with us, we might not be able to hold on to the treasure even if we managed to find it!”
“The four major forces are in no way inferior to our Five Element Sect! It seems like going into the Martial Emperor’s secret treasure is going to be a perilous journey!”
Other than Duan Ling Tian and Huang Daniu who were already well prepared, the group of Five Element Sect’s disciples was astonished. Judging from their words, it was clear that some of them were filled with dread.
Naturally, there were also some whose eyes shone brilliantly like Nangong Chen and Nangong Yi.
The moment they heard that other young powerhouses from other forces would be entering the Martial Emperor’s secret treasure too, a strong battle intention began to radiate from their bodies unconsciously.
Apart from the twins, Hu Fei, Tan Huang, and Tian Zhen’s eyes were all filled with anticipation as well.
“Naturally, the sect won’t force you if you don’t want to go in. However, before you make any decision, I still want to talk to all of you on behalf of the sect.” When he reached this point, Guo Chong paused for a while before continuing, “Among all of the things hidden inside the Martial Emperor’s secret treasure, the sect’s only interested in the Profundity Fragments. As for the remaining things like Ninth Level Concept Fragments or Grade One Spirit Weapon… Well, finders keepers. The sects will not seize it from you by force.”
The Profundity Fragment!
The moment the words left Guo Chong’s mouth, other than Duan Ling Tian, the other nineteen Five Element Sect’s disciples, including Huang Daniu, narrowed their eyes immediately.
Naturally, they all knew fairly well what the Profundity Fragment meant.
If the Five Element Sect could get their hands on the Profundity Fragment, even only one piece was enough to give birth to a Martial Emperor!
— and, right now, the Martial Emperor’s secret treasure that they were about to enter actually contained the Profundity Fragment?
All of them came around after giving it some thoughts.
After all, that was a place that contained the inheritance of a Martial Emperor during the course of his entire life. There must be no shortage of Profundity Fragments in the wealth accumulated during his entire lifetime.
“Whoever obtains the Profundity Fragment will become a great benefactor of our sect! In the future, the sect will fulfill and never refuse the request of the disciple who turns in the Profundity Fragment as long as it’s within the sect’s ability.” Guo Chong said with a solemn look as he reached the end of the sentence, “However, if you don’t turn in the Profundity Fragments and we find it after we perform a search on you, you won’t get the benefits anymore!”
Guo Chong’s tone became harsher than before as he said, “Whichever Five Element Sect’s disciple who comes out of the Martial Emperor’s secret treasure will have to hand in their Spatial Ring and let us have a thorough search! Once we’ve confirmed that you don’t have the Profundity Fragment on you, we’ll return the Spatial Ring to you. As for the other treasures, the sect will not lay a finger on it at all. Don’t even think about hiding the Spatial Ring from us. You should know that Peak Master Tian Gu is an Inscription Master, and when he expands his Spiritual Energy, he’ll be able to find out where you hide it even if you swallow the ring into your stomach!”
