Chapter 956: Three Spirit Fruits
The moment he heard Peng Bao’s reminder, Duan Ling Tian’s heart was flooded with warmth.
The exchange between him and Peng Bao was only an equal exchange. For Peng Bao to be able to do this, it meant that he was quite a worthy friend.
“Okay.” Duan Ling Tian smiled as he nodded.
“Then I’ll go first. Be careful.” Peng Bao nodded at Duan Ling Tian. After he bade Duan Ling Tian goodbye, he flew away in an instant.
After Peng Bao had left, Duan Ling Tian left as well.
However, the direction that he was headed in was different from the one Peng Bao took.
The cavern had seven exits, each leading to a different place. He merely chose a different one from Peng Bao.
This cave was just one of the thousands of caves inside the Martial Emperor’s secret treasure.
Boom! Boom! Boom! Boom! Boom!
Inside a cavern that was covered entirely in vegetation and was awfully humid, a series of energy clashing and explosions echoed inside in succession. It did not stop for a very long time.
Two figures were fighting with each other constantly, sometimes they clashed together and sometimes they separated. They seemed to be quite evenly matched in strength.
Nobody noticed when but a series of cracks had started to appear underneath their feet. The cracks interlocked with each other densely and spread out like a gigantic spider web.
“Is there any meaning for us to continue like this? What about this? I’ll give you one Seventh Level Concept Fragment, and you give me that second piece of spirit fruit. What do you think?” One of the figures could be heard saying as he leaped forward.
“Give it to me, and I’ll give you an Eighth Level Concept Fragment,” another figure said with disdain. At the same time, he rushed toward his opponent. As the power that was formed by the merging of his Origin Energy and Concept expanded vigorously, he charged toward his opponent in an overbearing manner.
“Hurmph! Then I guess we’ve nothing to discuss anymore!” The former snorted and pounced forward. Once again, he was locked in the battle with the latter.
The two of them continued to battle it out, and a series of explosion sound came from the place they clashed as it set off a flurry of hurricanes. It blew on a certain plant inside the humid cave so hard that it was on the verge of collapsing.
This plant was special. Unlike the other ordinary plants that were green in color, it was covered in three different colors instead.
The rhizomes that were slightly exposed were gold in color.
The branches were purple in color.
The leaves were red in color.
What was more important were the three different color spirit fruits hanging on top of the tree. It was gold, purple and red respectively.
If Duan Ling Tian was here and saw the tree, he would definitely be surprised.
A tree having three different colored spirit fruits was extremely peculiar.
Most importantly, the three spirit fruits were from different types of spirit fruits.
In other words, a martial artist could consume these three spirit fruits at the same time so as to allow them to help raise their own cultivation base. Moreover, there would not be a decrease in the medicinal efficacy as well.
At this moment, these two young powerhouses were battling each other because they found these three spirit fruits at the same time.
The three spirit fruits had a rich intense color on the surface, and it was apparent that they had just ripened.
This was the best time to consume them indeed.
Clang! Clang! Clang! Clang! Clang!
The figures of the two young men continued to interlock with each other. The spirit weapons in their hands kept clashing with each other once in a while as it set off a deafening and harsh sound that was truly appalling.
On top of their heads were the silhouettes of over 550 ancient horned dragons each.
Both of them were First Level Void Transformation martial artists who had comprehended First Level Void Transformation Concept. The spirit weapons in their hands were both grade two spirit weapons that possessed 78% boost.
The reason the two of them were locked in a battle was none other than the three spirit fruits.
If it were only two spirit fruits, after knowing that their strength was evenly matched, they would have long called a truce with each taking one spirit fruit, and everyone would be happy.
However, the problem was that there was a total of three spirit fruits.
At this moment, they were trying to use their strength to determine the ownership of the spirit fruits. The defeated party had to die while the winner would get all three spirit fruits.
The thing was they had yet to figure out who the winner was even though they had been battling for a long time.
One of the young men flew backward and said in a deep voice, “I don’t think we should continue on like this. If another person comes to take a share of the fruits, it’ll just be a lose-lose situation for the both of us!”
“Yes! However, I must obtain two out of the three spirit fruits here!” The other young man nodded his head in agreement, but he voiced out a condition that was unacceptable to the other party.
“Hurmph! Since you’re so greedy, I’ll continue.” The former’s face sank. After he snorted angrily, he continued to battle it out with the other party.
Time continued to go on quietly.
“Huh?” Outside of the cavern, a white figure flew in and came to a halt at one of the entrances of the cavern. His attention landed on the two people locked in a battle inside the cavern.
“I think the reason they’re fighting must be because of some loots!” The owner of the white figure — a white-clad young man — muttered to himself as he watched the two people locked in a battle.
“Zi Shang boy, you’re in luck!” At this moment, in the depth of the white-clad young man’s mind, a gloomy, hoarse, and ancient voice sounded without warning. It momentarily stunned the white-clad young man.
The white-clad young man was none other than Zi Shang who had fallen from one of the edges of the high platform below the entrance of the Martial Emperor’s secret treasure previously. He was supposed to have fallen to his death in the bottomless abyss, but he was still alive and well.
Apart from that, he had also entered the real Martial Emperor’s secret treasure.
“Elder Ghost, what did you notice?” Upon hearing Elder Ghost’s voice in his mind, Zi Shang’s eyes lit up at once.
“Look inside the cave yourself. That three-colored tree over there! Do you see it?” Ghost Flame’s voice resonated in Zi Shang’s mind.
Upon hearing this, Zi Shang immediately shifted his attention to the inside of the cavern. With just a glance, he could see that particularly conspicuous three-colored tree that had three different colored fruits hanging on top of it.
“Spirit fruits?!” A light flashed across Zi Shang’s eyes as his breathing immediately quickened.
“Although I don’t know what type of spirit fruits those are, my Soul Energy can sense that they’re not ordinary spirit fruits. Moreover, the medicinal efficacy of these fruits is between the spirit fruits that are exclusive to Void Interpretation and Void Transformation,” Ghost Flame’s voice continued to resonate in Zi Shang’s mind.
“What do you mean?” Upon hearing Ghost Flame’s words, confusion was written on Zi Shang’s face.
“What I mean is, be it a Void Interpretation martial artist or a Void Transformation martial artist, the three spirit fruits can be consumed by them too! If it’s a Void Interpretation martial artist who consumes it, the effect would be even greater!” Ghost Fire explained.
“A spirit fruit that can be consumed by both Void Interpretation and Void Transformation martial artists?” Zi Shang’s eyes brightened instantly. His breathing that was originally rapid accelerated even more. He could not calm down for a long time.
A spirit fruit that could be consumed by a Void Transformation martial artist would naturally have a stronger medicinal efficacy.
He was a martial artist who was only at the Seventh Level Void Interpretation. If he consumed these three spirit fruits, would his strength not advance by leaps and bounds?
The two Concepts that he comprehended had already entered the Void Transformation. Due to this reason, he did not need to worry that his cultivation base would not be able to enter the Void Transformation after he had made a rapid breakthrough to the Ninth Level Void Interpretation.
“These three spirit fruits belong to me, Zi Shang!” A gleam flashed in Zi Shang’s eyes. He looked at the two people who were still locked in a battle with disdain as he flew into the cavern. He did not even bother to hide in front of these two people.
“Who’s that?!” The moment Zi Shang made his appearance, he was immediately discovered by the two young men who were locked in a battle. All of a sudden, the two of them came to a halt and stared fixedly at Zi Shang simultaneously.
“I, Zi Shang, will be taking those three spirit fruits…” Zi Shang cast a glance at the two young men as he announced nonchalantly. The moment he reached this part of the sentence, he paused, but his tone indicated that there was no room left for discussion.
Upon hearing his words, the two young men’s face darkened right away. They bellowed angrily, “You wish!”
At this time, Zi Shang who paused for a while had a sharp gleam in his eyes. He continued in a chilling tone, “As for the two of you, don’t even think of living anymore!”
Don’t even think of living anymore!
One had to admit that Zi Shang’s words were absolutely dictatorial, and it had completely angered the two young men as well.
“How dare you!” One of the young men had murderous intent shooting out of his eyes. His voice was so chilling that it was as though it came directly from a thaw hole.
Taking a deep breath, the other young man asked the former, “The person who kills this lad gets two spirit fruits. What do you think?”
“Deal!” The former did not refuse and nodded his head fiercely instead.
The gazes of that the two young men as they stared at Zi Shang had a noticeable hint of ruthlessness as if they were about to devour a certain somebody.
The next moment, with tacit understanding, the two charged out at the same time toward Zi Shang.
The Origin Energy and Concept on their bodies merged together and transformed into a vast and undulating energy. Coupled with the spirit weapons in their hands, they pounced toward Zi Shang mercilessly.
The Heaven and Earth Energy above their heads whirled turbulently and finally gathered to become the silhouettes of over 550 ancient horned dragons each.
A total of more than 1100 ancient horned dragons bared their claws and fangs as they charged at Zi Shang.
“What a futile effort!” Faced with these two First Level Void Transformation martial artists, Zi Shang who was at the Seventh Level Void Interpretation did not seem to be afraid at all. A disdainful smirk crept up on the corner of his mouth as a seven-foot-long spear appeared in his hand out of thin air.
When Zi Shang saw the two young men charging at him without any reservation, a cold gleam flashed across Zi Shang’s eyes. As the long spear in his hand trembled, it suddenly blasted out in an overbearing manner.
The long spear pointed out as flames twined around it like a fiery dragon that was constantly writhing around the spear. Soon, a gust of blue wind chi appeared beside the fiery dragon and pierced it.
In an instant, the fiery dragon soared up right away as the Wind Concept fueled the Fire Concept.
At the same time, the silhouettes of 878 ancient horned dragons at the top of Zi Shang’s head swept out as the seven-foot-long spear in his hand blasted out like a lightning.
When all of his Origin Energy of the Seventh Level Void Interpretation was unleashed, it was equivalent to the strength of 100 ancient horned dragons. With the boost of the grade two spirit spear, it could be raised up to the strength of 178 ancient horned dragons.
With the the Fourth Level Advance Wind Concept that was equivalent to the strength of 400 ancient horned dragons, the First Level Advance Fire Concept that was equivalent to the strength of 200 ancient horned dragons, and the strength of 100 ancient horned dragons that was obtained from the fueling of Fire Concept with Wind Concept, Zi Shang now possessed the strength of 878 ancient horned dragons when he unleashed his full power.
“SHIT!” Upon seeing the 878 silhouettes of ancient horned dragons in the sky, horror immediately dawned on the two men who were charging at Zi Shang.
