Chapter 999: The Violetspike Fruit
Translator: EndlessFantasy Translation Editor: EndlessFantasy Translation
When Duan Ling Tian was looking in the direction of the loud explosion, a part of the ground was destroyed by a hidden energy that came from underground.
A stone platform suddenly rose at an alarming speed.
There was an exquisite little box on top of the stone platform.
The tiny box was similar to the one Duan Ling Tian had seen at Qing Feng Palace’s third level.
However, the object in the tiny box at Qing Feng Palace’s third level was a silver key.
“Could… a gold key be in this box?’ Duan Ling Tian’s heart began to palpitate as he speculated on his own.
Duan Ling Tian’s attention was on the tiny box, and it also caught the attention of Xu Qing and Zuo Yue who were charging menacingly toward Duan Ling Tian.
They were in the midst of charging at Duan Ling Tian when their movements came to a halt. A burning desire lit up their eyes.
Soon after, Zuo Yue dashed out and changed his direction to the tiny box on top of the stone platform. The matter of killing Duan Ling Tian was pushed to the side for the time being.
“Zuo Yue!” Xu Qing shouted as his facial expression changed.
He did not expect Zuo Yue to be so selfish. He had promised he would kill Duan Ling Tian first and fight Xu Qing later. In the end, he went for the tiny box that they suspected might contain the gold key.
All of a sudden, Xu Qing dashed out like a sharp gleaming sword at an alarming speed. He attempted to stop Zuo Yue from taking the tiny box with lightning speed.
“Hmph!” When Zuo Yue saw Xu Qing was going to fight over the tiny box that they suspected contained the gold key, his face was solemn as he scoffed. “Hmph!”
Without further delay, he began to fight Xu Qing.
Both of them were old rivals, their abilities were similar, and their fight usually ended in a tie!
However, they fought with all their might for the sake of the box.
They seemed to have completely forgotten about Duan Ling Tian.
Perhaps they felt Duan Ling Tian was no longer a threat to them at the moment, and whoever survived would be able to kill him easily.
On the other hand, Duan Ling Tian knew his life was no longer at risk for the time being when he saw Zuo Yue dashed toward the tiny box that they suspected contained the gold key.
Duan Ling Tian did not show too much interest in the tiny box at the moment.
Naturally, it would be wrong to say he had zero interest in the box.
At this moment, there was no way for him to obtain it even if he was interested.
Soon after, Duan Ling Tian’s attention shifted to what was happening beneath his body. At this very moment, his entire being was lifted by a floorboard that was slowly rising.
Duan Ling Tian leaped and landed on the ground.
With just a glance, he saw a green vine had appeared under the rising floorboard. The rising floorboard was being lifted by the green vine.
Although there was only one green vine before his eyes, it was as thick as an adult’s thigh.
However, what caught Duan Ling Tian’s attention was not the green vine. It was the magenta fruit that hung on the green vine as it sparkled with a faint violet glow.
When Duan Ling Tian browsed through the Rebirth Martial Emperor’s memory, he quickly identified the fruit before his eyes. It was a spirit fruit exclusively for Void Transformation martial artists.
The Violetspike Fruit was a spirit fruit exclusive to Void Transformation martial artists.
Among the spirit fruits in the Rebirth Martial Emperor’s memory, the Violetspike Fruit was considered the top spirit fruit that was exclusive to Void Transformation martial artists.
It was said that after consuming the Violetspike Fruit, even a martial artist who had just broken through to the Ninth Level Void Transformation would be able to break through to the Martial Emperor Stage and become a Martial Emperor powerhouse as long as he had comprehended the Monarch Stage Profundity.
One could imagine how powerful the Violetspike Fruit’s medicinal efficacy was.
‘I’m badly injured now. Even if I attack with all my strength, I can only muster up the strength of one thousand ancient horned dragons… Xu Qing and Zuo Yue can easily kill me!’
‘But if I eat the Violetspike Fruit…’
Duan Ling Tian looked in the distance as he thought about this, his guard was up the entire time.
He could not help but feel relieved when he saw Xu Qing and Zuo Yue did not notice the strange incident that occurred on his side since they were fighting over the tiny box that they suspected contained the golden key.
At the same time, Duan Ling Tian, who felt relieved, immediately extended his hand as quick as lightning and plucked the ripe magenta fruit, the Violetspike Fruit. He immediately put it into his mouth.
Duan Ling Tian swallowed the Violetspike Fruit in just a few bites. He felt a stream of warm current entering his body and releasing powerful medicinal efficacy again and again.
‘Such a powerful medicinal efficacy! The medicinal efficacy is so powerful that it can’t even be compared to the spirit fruit I previously took from Zi Shang. With its medicinal efficacy combined with the overbearing medicinal efficacy of the Rebirth Pill… My cultivation base might be able to instantly break through to the Fifth Level Void Transformation!’
Although Duan Ling Tian had already known how great the Violetspike Fruit was from the Rebirth Martial Emperor’s memory, he only realized how great the Violetspike Fruit really was after he consumed it.
‘No! It’s not just the Fifth Level Void Transformation… It’s even possible to break through to the Sixth Level Void Transformation!’
Duan Ling Tian thought to himself when he sensed the Rebirth Pill’s medicinal efficacy, that usually lay dormant deep in his Dantian, leaving his Dantian at an alarming speed. It then merged with his Origin Energy and the Violetspike Fruit’s medicinal efficacy.
It was his first time seeing the Rebirth Pill’s medicinal efficacy this active. It felt like he was injected with chicken blood as Origin Energy ran lightning fast in the meridians within his body.
Nine Dragons War Sovereign Technique, Roving Dragon Form!
Without further delay, Duan Ling Tian immediately sat on the ground and cultivated with his eyes closed.
At the same time, he did not forget to hold the Ninth Level Wind Concept Fragment in his hand.
One should know that the comprehension speed of Wind Concept would be accelerated whenever he cultivated the Roving Dragon Form’s mental cultivation method.
In his body, Origin Energy and the overbearing medicinal efficacy of the Rebirth Pill and Violetspike Fruit were rotating cycles after cycles with the aid from the Roving Dragon Form’s mental cultivation method.
The bottleneck to the Fourth Level Void Transformation that was already loose became even looser after a few hard impacts. It felt like it would be broken through with just a few more impacts!
‘Bang! Bang! Bang!’
A few impacts later, Duan Ling Tian felt a light bang within his body as he broke through the bottleneck that led to the Fourth Level Void Transformation. Origin Energy surged as it went through a tremendous change.
Fourth Level Void Transformation!
The Origin Energy that had transformed did not stop there.
Triggered by the Rebirth Pill and the Violetspike Fruit’s overbearing medicinal efficacy, the Origin Energy did not slow down as it continued to rotate cycles after cycles with the aid from the Roving Dragon Form’s mental cultivation method.
Duan Ling Tian’s cultivation base was rising at a terrifying speed…
However, Duan Ling Tian’s mind was not on his cultivation base. He could clearly feel his Wind Concept had changed, but the change did not come from the breakthrough.
‘It doesn’t seem like the Wind Concept has broken through… However, I can sense another kind of energy coming out of it. The energy feels charged and ready!’
‘What’s that exactly?!’
Curious, Duan Ling Tian tried making contact with the energy that came from the Wind Concept.
Soon after, he felt a burning aura coming out of his body. In just an instant, a rampant and hot energy soared and enveloped his entire being.
However, the burning red energy that appeared did not cause him any harm.
‘It’s the Fire… Fire Concept?!’
Duan Ling Tian opened his eyes and absentmindedly looked at the energy surrounding his body.
It was a Concept. The Fire Concept!
‘That’s not right… The Fire Concept’s level seems to be… similar to the Wind Concept?’
Through trial and error, Duan Ling Tian discovered a shocking fact.
To his surprise, the Fire Concept that came out of the Third Level Advanced Wind Concept he had comprehended was similar to the Wind Concept. It was also the Third Level Void Transformation Concept!
It meant that the Fire Concept he just comprehended was instantly at the Third Level Advanced Fire Concept.
‘Isn’t this Nine Dragons War Sovereign Technique’s Eighth Form, the Roving Dragon Form, a little crazy? It didn’t only birth the Fire Concept out of the Wind Concept, the Fire Concept it birthed is on such a high level too!’
‘Moreover, there seems to be some kind of connection between the Fire Concept and the Wind Concept… It feels like the Fire Concept would break through whenever the Wind Concept experiences a breakthrough!’
Duan Ling Tian’s heart began palpitating when he thought about this.
‘If that’s really the case… I don’t even have to comprehend Fire Concept separately! All I need to do is elevate the Wind Concept, and the Fire Concept will follow suit.’
‘Perhaps when I have comprehended Wind Profundity, it would follow and turn into Fire Profundity as well!’
Duan Ling Tian’s heart beat even faster as he thought to this point. It was beating so fast it felt like his heart was going to jump out of his chest.
What was happening on Duan Ling Tian’s side finally caught Xu Qing and Zuo Yue’s attention. After another round of attack, they did not rush into the fight again for the time being.
Their attention simultaneously shifted to the other side.
They saw a thick green vine that lifted a floorboard before their eyes.
With their great eyesight, they noticed a new notch on the green vine with just one glance. It was as though somebody had just plucked something off it.
“Spirit fruit!” The two of them looked at each other and saw realization dawned in each other’s eyes.
Both of their faces changed dramatically at the same time.
“Did Duan Ling Tian pluck the spirit fruit?”
“Could the spirit fruit be the other reward that Martial Emperor Qing Feng left behind at the fourth level? ” Both of their hearts thumped heavily.
They remembered Martial Emperor Qing Feng’s message clearly. In the message, it was mentioned that there would be other rewards at Qing Feng Palace’s fifth level apart from the gold key.
Martial Emperor Qing Feng did not reveal what the other rewards were in the message.
Therefore, they did not really pay any mind to the other rewards since the beginning.
As soon as the tiny box that they suspected contained the gold key appeared, they were so focused on fighting over the ownership of the tiny box that they had completely ignored what was happening on the other side.
