Translator: EndlessFantasy Translation Editor: EndlessFantasy Translation
“Halo? What halo?” Duan Ling Tian looked around, but he did not see any halo the Martial Emperor mentioned in his message.
However, at this moment, he noticed a light shooting inside the stone room out of nowhere, and the light turned into a halo as it landed.
All of a sudden, his entire being was shrouded in the halo.
“If I’m the only one left in the halo after an hour, I’ll be able to enter that something called One-in-Four Stone Room and obtain the treasures in there?”
Since Duan Ling Tian found the halo the Martial Emperor mentioned, he quickly switched his attention elsewhere.
Soon after, Duan Ling Tian noticed that apart from the corridor that he entered from, there were corridors in the other three directions in the One-in-Four Stone Room.
“Could there be another three people?”
At this moment, Duan Ling Tian could faintly guess how the name One-in-Four Stone Room came about.
One-in-Four meant forfeit three people among the four while the remaining one would enter.
“Seems like when there’s only one person left in the halo after an hour… The One-in-Four Stone Room will officially open.”
It was not difficult for Duan Ling Tian to figure that out.
“The other three people… I wonder who they are.”
Duan Ling Tian’s eyes gleamed as he stared at the other three corridors. “It’s obvious their ability isn’t powerful since they’ve yet to arrive until now… It’s impossible for them to be Xu Qing, Zuo Yue or Peng Bao.”
“Luckily I managed to run fast. Otherwise, I would’ve been killed by that stupid stone man… At that time, my fame would be completely destroyed!”
All of a sudden, Duan Ling Tian heard a loud voice coming from one of the corridors, and it caused the expression on his face to turn extremely odd.
“What a coincidence.” A half-smile appeared on Duan Ling Tian’s lips as he looked at that corridor.
Meanwhile, a big and strong silhouette appeared before his eyes.
“Duan… Duan Ling Tian?!” As the big young man walked out of the corridor while he was complaining, he noticed the purple-clad young man standing nearby. A shocked expression appeared on his face.
“Daniu, we really have fate…” Duan Ling Tian could not help but smile when he saw the strong young man.
The person who came was none other than Huang Daniu!
“Haha… Duan Ling Tian, seems like my luck is good. Even god is helping me, it’s God’s will that I met you here! Let’s go, help me kill those stupid stone men. I want those spirit weapons and bottles of medicinal pills,” Huang Daniu said as his eyes lit up.
Naturally, Duan Ling Tian knew which stone men Huang Daniu was talking about. They were those human sculptures in the corridor that he destroyed earlier.
Those sculptures were nothing to him, but some of them were invincible to Huang Daniu.
Duan Ling Tian figured there was still almost an hour until the One-in-Four Stone Room opened so he followed Huang Daniu and entered the corridor that Huang Daniu came from.
It was a killing spree again, Duan Ling Tian destroyed each and every human and beast sculptures that Huang Daniu could not defeat.
Meanwhile, all Huang Daniu did was sit back and relax as he picked up the spirit weapons and medicinal pills from the stone rooms one by one. He was smiling like a kid.
“Daniu, there’s something I need to tell you.” When Duan Ling Tian saw how happy Huang Daniu was, Duan Ling Tian planned to pour cold water on him so that he would wake up from his daydream.
“Yea?” Huang Daniu looked at Duan Ling Tian suspiciously, but the smile on his face remained.
“There’s an isolated stone room at the end of this corridor, only one person can enter… Including me and you, there’ll be a total of four people joining in the fight.” Duan Ling Tian proceeded to tell him whatever he knew about the stone room.
“Damn! What kind of shitty luck do I have that I was arranged to fight you… I wonder who the other ill-fated people are apart from me.” Huang Daniu could not help but curse when he heard what Duan Ling Tian said. Resentment was written on his face when he spoke.
“Daniu, you sure change really fast… Who was the one who said he has great luck that even god helped him to meet me here?” Duan Ling Tian looked at Huang Daniu and smiled wryly. He remembered everything Huang Daniu said when they met earlier.
“Well, I didn’t know about this ‘special stone room’ when I said that… I’m so unlucky to be arranged to fight a freak like you.” Huang Daniu forced a smile.
Soon, he returned to normal. “Luckily there are two more ill-fated people accompanying me… Let’s go, let’s see who the other two ill-fated guys are!”
When Duan Ling Tian and Huang Daniu returned to the One-in-Four Stone Room, they noticed there were already two young men standing there, and the atmosphere was tense.
The two young men stared at each other, and tension was rife between them.
They shifted their attention when Duan Ling Tian appeared.
One glance was enough to change their expressions completely.
“Duan-Duan Ling Tian!”
One of them gulped as his face turned pale while the other did not fare any better. When he looked at Duan Ling Tian, there was fear in his eyes as though he had encountered some catastrophic beast.
“No fun… I thought it would be people from the second-rate forces, it’s just the both of you.” Huang Daniu, who was next to Duan Ling Tian, could not help but feel a little disappointed when he saw the duo.
Duan Ling Tian smiled as he shook his head.
Naturally, he knew why Huang Daniu said that. He wanted to witness those second-rate forces’ disciples beaten up before his eyes. However, who would have known the duo who were arranged to fight them were not disciples from second-rate forces.
Duan Ling Tian had a little impression on the two people before him.
One of them was an Emotion Severing Sect’s disciple while the other was a monk disciple from the Empyrean Temple.
“So? Are the two of you going to fight me?” Duan Ling Tian walked to the halo surrounding the isolated stone room slowly as he looked at the both of them with narrowed eyes. He wore a smile that did not look like a smile on his face.
“I’m not doing that! I’ll leave right away.”
The both of them waved their hands clumsily and retreated from the halo in the isolated room as though they were running for their lives. They then disappeared into the corridors they came from.
‘That’s not funny!’
They encountered the person who killed the most powerful person in Izumo Sect, a second-rate force, how would they dare to fight him.
All of a sudden, the only two left outside the One-in-Four Stone Room were Duan Ling Tian and Huang Daniu.
Huang Daniu quickly retreated from the halo since he knew his place.
“Duan Ling Tian, you’re going to be rich this time… The treasures in this isolated something called the One-in-Four Stone Room must be extraordinary!” Huang Daniu looked at Duan Ling Tian enviously as he stood outside the halo.
Duan Ling Tian smiled and did not say much. However, his eyes that were gleaming brightly revealed the anticipation he felt for the treasures in the stone room.
Time went by silently. Soon, an hour had passed.
‘Fwah! Fwah! Fwah! Fwah! Fwah!’
As the halo surrounding the stone room flashed, a light shield rose around the halo. It then shrouded Duan Ling Tian together with the One-in-Four Stone Room as though it was forming an isolated space.
Duan Ling Tian detected what the light shield was with his Spiritual Energy the second it appeared. He reminded Huang Daniu instantly, “Daniu, don’t touch the light shield… It’s a Killing Formation!”
Huang Daniu nodded solemnly before he spoke up, “The stone room’s opened, go in quick!”
When Duan Ling Tian heard Huang Daniu’s reminder, Duan Ling Tian realized a stone door had appeared at the side of the One-in-Four Room that was initially closed. The stone door was pushed away and was wide open.
After saying goodbye to Huang Daniu, Duan Ling Tian dashed into the stone room.
The instant Duan Ling Tian entered, the stone door at the side of the stone room closed again, effectively trapping Duan Ling Tian inside.
“So unlucky, I’m completely out of luck…” Huang Daniu shook his head and left as he turned around. He left to look for ‘opportunities’ that belonged to him.
As Duan Ling Tian passed through the stone door that was wide open, he arrived in a spacious stone room.
Looking at the stone room, it was not too different from the stone rooms he had gone into earlier.
If he had to state a difference, the only difference was there was no spirit weapon nor were there any medicinal pill bottles with medicinal pills in the room.
Suddenly, a faint noise appeared behind Duan Ling Tian. The noise changed his expression completely.
When he finally responded to the noise, Duan Ling Tian realized the stone door behind him was closed again. He was locked in this airtight stone room with no ventilation.
Just when Duan Ling Tian was planning to leave by breaking the door, the noise sounded again.
‘Rrrrr! Rrrrr! Rrrrr! ‘
The loud noise came from above his head, and Duan Ling Tian could not help but look as he lifted his head.
With just a glance, Duan Ling Tian saw the stone room’s ceiling was moving automatically. It was opened, and a path out of the stone room was opened for him.
“Congratulations, young one… You’re one step closer to my body.”
At this moment, the Martial Emperor’s voice entered Duan Ling Tian’s ears. His Spiritual Energy detected the Polyphony Formation was activated in the stone room when the ceiling moved.
‘One step closer?’
Initially, Duan Ling Tian did not understand the Martial Emperor’s message entirely.
Soon, he recalled the One-in-Four experience that he went through earlier and seemed to understand something. “It seems like when the One-in-Four was happening on my side so I can proceed to the next level…. There are other One-in-Four going on in other places at the same time!”
“Only the ones who manage to walk to the end will see the Martial Emperor’s body and get the three Profundity Fragments in his body!”
It was not difficult for Duan Ling Tian to figure that out.
“The treasures in this stone room…”
When Duan Ling Tian realized he was not locked in the stone room, he looked at the treasures on the stone platform nearby in relief.
It was a plant that was planted in a pot. It was entirely green, and it was sparkling with a faint green light.
To be exact, it was a herb.
“What is this…”
Duan Ling Tian realized how extraordinary this herb was when he saw the sparkling green light on it. However, he could not figure out what it was. The only thing he could do was to browse through the Rebirth Martial Emperor’s memories for related information.
“It’s the Immortal Spirit Herb!” Duan Ling Tian soon found the answer. It was an answer that shocked him and made him rejoice!!
