Chapter 979: Trade
Translator: EndlessFantasy Translation Editor: EndlessFantasy Translation
When Duan Ling Tian saw Peng Bao frowning, he could not help but feel as though his heart was being suspended at that moment.
Although he was confident he could kill Peng Bao and take the Eighth Level Monarch Stage Thunder Profundity Fragment from him, he did not even think of doing that.
He thought to himself, he might not be able to defeat Peng Bao if he did not use the amulet when he first met Peng Bao. Moreover, to Peng Bao at that time, he was just an ordinary disciple from a third-rate force and taking the Concept Fragment from him would be easy.
However, Peng Bao did not do that and traded his Concept Fragment the right way instead.
That was why he genuinely liked Peng Bao.
Now that the situation had turned around, it was only natural for him to treat Peng Bao the same way instead of robbing him. He made this decision despite acknowledging that he, himself was a scoundrel since he did not have any qualms about snatching treasures away from people he did not know. However, the person he encountered this time was Peng Bao. The Peng Bao who did not rob the Concept Fragment that he had just because he was a disciple of a third-rate force.
Naturally, Peng Bao had no idea what Duan Ling Tian was thinking at the moment.
If he knew Duan Ling Tian’s current ability, and his thoughts at the moment, he would definitely feel fortunate that he managed to escape the threat.
“What kind of Profundity Fragment do you have with you?”
Just when Duan Ling Tian was hesitating, Peng Bao’s voice entered his ears again. It was crystal clear.
Suddenly, Duan Ling Tian’s eyes lit up. He could tell Peng Bao was interested in the Profundity Fragment he had.
Duan Ling Tian looked at Peng Bao and said with Voice Transmission word by word, “It’s the Wind Profundity Fragment!”
Very quickly, he saw the joy that flashed in Peng Bao’s eyes.
He was excited when he saw that and could not help but exclaim inwardly, ‘Here’s my chance!’
It was natural that he was in a difficult situation before joy flashed in Peng Bao’s eyes.
Speaking of value, the Eighth Level Monarch Stage Thunder Profundity Fragment that Peng Bao possessed was undoubtedly much higher than the Third Level Monarch Stage Wind Profundity Fragment that Duan Ling Tian had.
However, none of the Anicca Sect’s senior officials could use the Thunder Profundity Fragment since none of them had comprehended the Ninth Level Advanced Thunder Concept.
Only martial artists who had comprehended the Ninth Level Advanced Thunder Concept could comprehend Thunder Profundity from the Thunder Profundity Fragment to achieve the Monarch Stage.
Meanwhile, the Anicca Sect Leader, the second most powerful powerhouse in Anicca Sect who was his master as well, could use the Wind Profundity Fragment.
‘As soon as master obtains the Wind Profundity Fragment that Duan Ling Tian has, he can definitely break through to the Monarch Stage instantly and become the second most powerful Monarch Stage powerhouse in Anicca Sect!’ Peng Bao’s heart thumped with excitement as he thought about this.
However, although he was excited, he could not help but think of the grade of the Monarch Stage Wind Profundity Fragment that Duan Ling Tian possessed.
Out of nowhere, a hint of bitterness appeared at the edges of his lips.
Finally, Peng Bao made up his mind.
For the most part, the Eighth Level Monarch Stage Thunder Profundity Fragment that he had was much more precious than Duan Ling Tian’s Third Level Monarch Stage Wind Profundity Fragment. However, the problem was even if he brought the Eighth Level Monarch Stage Thunder Profundity Fragment that he possessed back to Anicca Sect, it was impossible for Anicca Sect to produce a Monarch Stage powerhouse in such a short period of time.
It would take ages for anyone in Anicca Sect to comprehend the Ninth Level Advanced Thunder Concept and ascend to a Ninth Level Void Transformation martial artist by comprehending the Thunder Profundity with the help of the Thunder Profundity Fragment.
To the current Anicca Sect, the Third Level Monarch Stage Wind Profundity Fragment’s value was much higher than the Eighth Level Monarch Stage Thunder Profundity Fragment.
Peng Bao looked at Duan Ling Tian with desperation written in his eyes and asked through Voice Transmission, “Brother Ling Tian, I’ll trade the Eighth Level Monarch Stage Thunder Profundity Fragment that I have with your Third Level Monarch Stage Wind Profundity Fragment… Are you willing to do that?”
Duan Ling Tian did not say a word and lifted his hand as quick as lightning. A fragment that shone with green energy was thrown from his hand toward Peng Bao.
He used his straightforward action to answer Peng Bao’s question.
Peng Bao did not expect Duan Ling Tian to be so outright and trusted him to the extent where he just tossed the Third Level Monarch Stage Wind Profundity Fragment to him just like that.
‘Isn’t he afraid I’ll leave with the Profundity Fragment?’
Although Peng Bao thought of that, he, naturally, did not delay his action at all. He took out a fragment that was shining with purple energy and tossed it to Duan Ling Tian at the same time he caught the Wind Profundity Fragment.
It was the Eighth Level Monarch Stage Thunder Profundity Fragment that Duan Ling Tian wanted.
Duan Ling Tian extended his arm like lightning and caught the Thunder Profundity Fragment tightly in his hand.
‘What a steal!’
At this moment, although Duan Ling Tian tried his best to maintain the calm expression on his face, he could not help the excitement that filled his heart.
He traded his Third Level Monarch Stage Profundity Fragment for an Eighth Level Monarch Stage Profundity Fragment.
Many people’s jaws would drop if the news spread out!
The trade of the Profundity Fragments between Duan Ling Tian and Peng Bao was quick like lightning. Even Huang Daniu, Su Li, and Zhang Shou Yong did not see their movements clearly.
However, there was another person there apart from the duo, Huang Daniu, and the other two.
It was Lei Jun, the second most powerful powerhouse in the current Izumo Sect.
He saw everything Duan Ling Tian and Peng Bao did from the beginning until the end before his eyes.
The way he looked at Duan Ling Tian was filled with greed, especially when he traded the Profundity Fragment with Peng Bao. If it was not for Peng Bao’s sake, he would have taken action.
Naturally, Duan Ling Tian saw how Lei Jun was looking at him, but he ignored it.
His mind was occupied with the Eighth Level Monarch Stage Thunder Profundity Fragment in his hand. He put the precious treasure that he had just obtained away in his Spatial Ring as he thought to himself, ‘Now the three Concepts of nature that I comprehended have their relative high-grade Monarch Stage Profundity Fragments… As soon as I comprehend them to the Ninth Advanced Level, I can use the three Profundity Fragments to elevate them further to the Monarch Stage Profundity!’
When Duan Ling Tian thought about this, a rush of excitement filled his body.
Even if he only had one Profundity Fragment that he could use, it meant that he was one step closer to achieving Monarch Stage. However, he had now obtained the relative Profundity Fragments for the four types of Concepts that he comprehended.
‘Seventh Level Monarch Stage Earth Profundity Fragment, Eighth Level Monarch Stage Wind Profundity Fragment, Eight Level Monarch Stage Thunder Profundity Fragment, and Third Level Monarch Stage Sword Profundity Fragment…’
‘As for the Third Level Monarch Stage Thunder Profundity Fragment, I’ll give that to the Sect!’ Duan Ling Tian planned secretly.
Initially, he had planned to give the Third Level Monarch Stage Wind Profundity Fragment to the Sect after killing the black-clad young man he suspected to be a North Nether Sect’s disciple and obtained the Eighth Level Monarch Stage Profundity Fragment from him.
Unexpectedly, his meeting with Peng Bao presented him with such a great opportunity.
Trading a Third Level Monarch Stage Wind Profundity Fragment with Peng Bao’s Eighth Level Monarch Stage Thunder Profundity Fragment was such a steal.
Naturally, it was impossible for him to give the Third Level Monarch Stage Wind Profundity Fragment to the Sect since it was with Peng Bao now.
Therefore, he could only give another Profundity Fragment that he possessed.
Coincidentally, since he obtained the Eighth Level Monarch Stage Thunder Profundity Fragment from Peng Bao, the other Third Level Monarch Stage Thunder Profundity Fragment that he possessed became dispensable. He could give that to the Sect.
‘There are a total of five Profundity Fragments in the outer ring of the Martial Emperor’s secret treasure… Now that I have three of them, who could have obtained the other two?’ Duan Ling Tian could not help but wonder as his eyes gleamed.
“Brother Ling Tian, I supposed you are all heading to the central area of the Martial Emperor’s secret treasure?”
Suddenly, a voice entered Duan Ling Tian’s ears. After he was pulled back to reality, he turned toward the source of the voice and saw Peng Bao smiling as he looked at him.
“Yes.” Duan Ling Tian nodded.
“If that’s the case, let’s go there together… We’re going there as well,” Peng Bao suggested.
“Sure,” Duan Ling Tian agreed instantly.
However, Lei Jun who was standing at the side looked extremely unpleasant after hearing what Peng Bao said.
The reason Peng Bao did this was naturally to protect Duan Ling Tian so Lei Jun would not be interested in robbing the Profundity Fragment from Duan Ling Tian.
“Peng Bao, since you have gotten what you need… Then there’s no need for us to work together anymore!”
A menacing gleam flashed in Lei Jun’s eyes as he looked at Peng Bao, the glare soon shifted to Duan Ling Tian. The killing intent was rising, it was as though he could not wait to kill Duan Ling Tian to have a peace of mind.
Lei Jun dashed out as soon as he was done speaking, he was headed in the direction of the central area of the Martial Emperor’s secret treasure. He disappeared before Duan Ling Tian and the others’ eyes in an instant.
Peng Bao did not care much about Lei Jun’s departure, and Duan Ling Tian naturally did not care at all.
After asking Hua Daniu and the other two to come along, they headed toward the central area of the Martial Emperor’s secret treasure together.
The objective of their journey was to search and fight the other young powerhouses for treasures when they arrived at the central area of the Martial Emperor’s secret treasure. If they managed to live, each of them would have to exit from the cave that they entered.
‘Whoosh! Whoosh! Whoosh!’
The five of them were quick, and they were getting closer and closer to the central area.
“Peng Bao, since you’re an Anicca Sect’s disciple, you must know something about the disciples from North Nether Sect?” Duan Ling Tian asked Peng Bao curiously while they were on the way.
“North Nether Sect’s disciples… I know a few of them who are rather remarkable.”
Peng Bao said, “Why did you ask that out of nowhere? Do you have friends from North Nether Sect?”
Duan Ling Tian shook his head and casually said, “I’m just asking… Is there a young powerhouse who comprehends the Third Level Advanced Earth Concept and achieved Third Level Void Transformation in North Nether Sect?”
“Are you talking about Leng Ji?”
Peng Bao could not help but be stunned as soon as Duan Ling Tian was done speaking.
