Translator: EndlessFantasy Translation Editor: EndlessFantasy Translation
Puff! Puff! Puff!
Five bloody arrows shot through the lean young man’s vital organs. His shimmering bright eyes dimmed as he trembled and then faltered.
Boom! He was dead, and his body eventually fell and slammed on the ground.
At the same time, the three khaki divine dragons surrounded by purple lightning and green energy dissipated in the air as if they were never there.
Duan Ling Tian kept the Quasi Royal Grade Spirit Sword he was holding in his hand. His eyes gleamed as it fell on the lean young man’s body. He continued muttering, “I would not be a match for him if I did not make a breakthrough in my cultivation and progress to the Second Level Void Transformation.”
Duan Ling Tian was certain of that.
Naturally, Duan Ling Tian was not afraid even after realizing that.
Even if he was no match for his opponent, or if he was incapable of escaping, the one who would die would not be him.
It was because he had two amulets from his father only in name, Duan Ru Feng. It was not difficult to kill a Second Level Void Transformation martial artist.
He had no fear because of that.
He deemed it worthy to waste an amulet to save his life.
After all, nothing was more important than one’s life.
Duan Ling Tian kept the Spatial Rings and spirit weapons from the hideous young man and the lean young man into his own Spatial Ring. He guessed inwardly. ‘These two people… should also be from the second-rate forces.’
If they were not from the second-rate forces, they would not be so strong. That was how Duan Ling Tian arrived at his conclusion.
“Their strength… should be at ranked at the top few places among all the young disciples from all the forces.” Duan Ling Tian guessed again.
‘Now, I should start looking for the person who obtained the Tricolour Fruits… If a single person obtained all three of them, that person should only be able to consume one spirit fruit at the most.’ As the idea appeared, Duan Ling Tian began a thorough search in all directions from the center of the cave to find the person who had obtained the Tricolour Fruits.
If he managed to locate that person, he would be presented with a precious opportunity if that person was alone.
‘If I manage to obtain two Tricolour Fruits, the medicinal efficacy will be sufficient to trigger the Rebirth Pill’s potent medicinal efficacy… Then I’ll able to advance to the Fifth Level Void Transformation.’ Duan Ling Tian was fairly certain of it.
He understood the Tricolor Fruits’ medicinal efficacies very well due to the Rebirth Martial Emperor’s memories. The Tricolour Fruits were enough for him to achieve the Fourth Level Void Transformation!
With the addition of the Rebirth Pill’s medicinal efficacy, he was almost a hundred percent certain he would be able to advance to the Fifth Level Void Transformation or even the Sixth Level Void Transformation.
‘Fifth Level Void Transformation…Sixth Level Void Transformation…’ Just the thought of it made Duan Ling Tian excited, and his feet moved faster and faster.
‘I sincerely hope all of the Tricolour Fruits were obtained by the same person and that he had indeed found a hidden spot nearby to cultivate so that I’ll have a chance to find him and obtain the remaining spirit fruits.’ Duan Ling Tian prayed as he searched thoroughly in all directions.
On the other hand, in a hidden cave not too far away from the damp cave, a person was sitting cross-legged inside as he silently cultivated in a dark and gloomy cove. The cove was situated inside one of the grooves at the top corner of the hidden cave. It was extremely hidden.
Most people would miss it while passing through.
Judging from the looks of the groove, it was not weathered so it was very likely that it was artificially made not too long ago.
Suddenly, a breath was heard in the dark and gloomy cove.
A voice filled with happiness and excitement sounded, “I finally managed to advance to the First Level Void Transformation!” The owner of the voice was none other than Zi Shang who had obtained three spirit fruits a month ago.
One month ago, Zi Shang tried to find a remote location to cultivate after obtaining the three spirit fruits. However, he failed to find a suitable place even after he looked for a long time. Eventually, he found this hidden cave and opened up a cove in an inconspicuous corner on top of the cave. The cove was against the light, thus there was no light in it.
Unless someone outside purposefully and thoroughly searched, it would be almost impossible to discover the cave Zi Shang opened.
Hence, Zi Shang had been cultivating in it with a peaceful mind.
After a month, he finally absorbed the medicinal efficacy of one of the spirit fruits and managed to advance from Seventh Level Void Interpretation to First Level Void Transformation.
“Quickly eat and absorb the other two… That’s the only way you’ll be able to achieve anything in the Martial Emperor’s secret treasure! Or else, you won’t be able to defeat the leaders of the young disciples from second-rate forces even with my soul in you,” a gloomy, hoarse and ancient voice echoed in Zi Shang’s mind, reminding Zi Shang of the situation at hand.
“Yes, Elder Ghost,” Zi Shang answered respectfully when he heard the voice. He hurriedly took out another spirit fruit and ate it without delay.
Shortly after, he was once again focused on his cultivation, improving rapidly.
The current Zi Shang did not realize that his mortal enemy, Duan Ling Tian, was thoroughly searching for him from the damp cave where he found the three spirit fruits.
Duan Ling Tian could arrive at any given time.
Martial Emperor’s secret treasure, in a cave as wide as a Martial Arts Practice Hall. Crushed stones were scattered all over the ground as it accumulated there.
Among them, there were green fragments. There were hundreds of them, and all of it were Wind Concept fragments.
Three groups of people were in a standoff in the cave.
At that moment, most of their gazes were on the exquisite box mounted in the center on top of the cave. It was obvious that everyone was interested and yearned for the treasures in it.
A red-clad young man who stood beside a tall and strong young man took a deep breath and asked softly, “Daniu, are you confident?”
The third man, who was slightly older stood aside. He looked at the other two groups with a hint of panic in his gaze.
“We’ll have to try.” The tall and strong youth was Huang Daniu, the disciple from Wood Peak of Five Element Sect. His face was solemn as he stayed guarded.
As for the ones who stood beside him, they were disciples of Blade Sect, Su Li, and Zhang Shou Yong. All of them met and became friends because of the same person.
“Since everyone wants the treasure… Let’s battle for it,” one of the groups shouted. They moved forward and flew toward another group.
In just a second, three individuals from the former group easily overpowered the duo in the latter group. One of them was even in a life or death situation.
“Oh, no!” Huang Daniu and his two companions did not expect that three individuals from the former group to be so strong. Their strength surpassed the duo and also surpassed the three of them.
The three of them could imagine what was waiting for them once the duo was killed.
“We’ll help you!” Huang Daniu and his companions flew out and joined the battle. They helped the duo resist the group who was stronger than them. It caused that group to be at a disadvantage.
‘Heng’ Soon after, a blue-clad young man from the former group, who had not shown his strength, exerted his real strength. Ninth Level Void Interpretation with Ninth Level Intermediate Earth Concept! That turned the battle around.
The three of them immediately became evenly matched with the five of them on Huang Daniu’s side.
However, Huang Daniu’s side slowly slipped into a disadvantageous position since the other party had a Ninth Level Void Interpretation martial artist who had comprehended the Ninth Level Intermediate Earth Concept.
“Damn!” Huang Daniu and the others’ faces took on an extremely ghastly expression.
Finally, they were forced to retreat further. They look at the three-person group from afar, their faces filled with discontentment.
However, even if they were discontented, nothing could be done because they were no match for their opponents.
“Heng” The strongest youth among the three-person group glanced at them with disdain. He then flew upward to retrieve the exquisite box mounted at the center of the cave.
Under Huang Daniu and the others’ envious gazes, he opened the exquisite box.
A piece of fragment shimmering with green energy appeared before their eyes.
“That’s…” Huang Daniu stared. “A Concept Fragment? But it doesn’t look like one…Concept Fragment doesn’t shimmer with energy, right?”
“Is it a Profundity Fragment?” Zhang Shou Yong swallowed his saliva and guessed with a shocked expression.
Zhang Shou Yong’s speculation stunned Huang Daniu and Su Li into silence.
“It’s a Profundity Fragment,” said one of the duo who stood beside Zhang Shou Yong.
At that moment, his eyes were trained on the fragment shimmering with green energy inside the exquisite box, his gaze seemed to be rooted to it.
“Congratulation, young one… This Eighth Level Monarch Stage Wind Profundity Fragment is now yours.” A familiar but strange voice was heard just as Zhang Shou Yong and his two companions wondered how the young man beside them from unknown forces recognized the Profundity Fragment.
The voice spread from the opened exquisite box. It was extremely penetrating, and it transmitted far away.
“Ei-eighth Level Monarch Stage Profundity Fragment?!” Huang Daniu’s pupils shrank. He looked at the young man who was holding the exquisite box with a killing intent. However, helplessness soon showed on his face.
His opponent, like him, had comprehended Earth Concept and could draw support from Earth Energy. However, his opponent was also a Ninth Level Void Interpretation Martial Artist. Hence, he was no match for his opponent.
“Damn! It’s an Eighth Level Monarch Stage Profundity Fragment!” The duo’s faces, who stood beside Huang Daniu and his two companions, changed dramatically.
