Chapter 1720: Spirit Pool
Translator: EndlessFantasy Translation Editor: EndlessFantasy Translation
This name was not unfamiliar to those who were present.
The Rising Sky Ranking Battle had made Li Feng rose to fame. Ever since that battle, not only did the name Li Feng swept across the entire Rising Sky Mansion’s district, but even the surrounding districts knew about him.
Currently, most people in the Lower Province of Dao Martial Saint Land must have heard of him as long as they were not staying in a very remote place. Due to this reason, many quasi third-rate forces were trying rope Li Feng into their forces.
Unfortunately, ever since the Rising Sky Ranking Battle, Li Feng had completely disappeared as though he had disappeared from the world. However, there was someone claiming to be a friend of Li Feng today!
If he was just an ordinary person, no one would be bothered with him. However, he was a genius Martial Cultivator among the younger generation with monstrously high innate talent and strength. People even suspected him to be at the Intermediate Refined Saint Stage or above even though he had not even reached the age of forty.
Wang Fei Xuan stared at him with widened eyes as she beamed, sizing him up. She asked him again, “You… Do you really know Li Feng? Li Feng’s really your friend?”
“Why would I pretend to be Li Feng’s friend?” Duan Ling Tian smiled faintly.
“I just wonder why someone as strong as Li Feng is friends with you,” Wang Fei Xuan said with a smile as she blinked.
“Li Feng’s strong, but it doesn’t mean I’m weak,” Duan Ling Tian said lightly as his faint smile still remained on his face.
“Tsk! Is your strength comparable to Li Feng? He’s someone who has entered the peak of the Refined Saint Stage even though he has not even reached forty years old. Don’t tell me your cultivation base is the same as Li Feng, and you’ve entered the peak of the Refined Saint Stage as well,” Wang Fei Xuan said as she began to laugh.
Wang Fei Xuan’s laughter was enchanting, and it seemed to eclipse everything in the surrounding. Even Duan Ling Tian could not help but feel distracted for a moment.
In terms of Wang Fei Xuan’s appearance, she was definitely extremely beautiful. In fact, her perfect figure would not lose if she was compared to his fiancée, Li Fei.
Although Duan Ling Tian was only distracted for a moment, that moment was still caught by Wang Fei Xuan. At once, a smile crept on to the corner of her mouth. Currently, she no longer doubted her own charm.
“Put aside the peak of the Refined Saint Stage, I haven’t even entered the Mastery Refined Saint Stage or the Intermediate Refined Saint Stage.” Duan Ling Tian said with a faint smile when he regained his senses.
“Haven’t even entered the Intermediate Refined Saint Stage? Who are you trying to kid!” Wang Fei Xuan shot Duan Ling Tian a dirty look.
However, Wang Fei Xuan’s reaction made it seem more like she was flirting. She began to blush in a rosy and seductive color as soon as she returned to her senses.
“That’s up to you to believe or not!” When Duan Ling Tian saw Wang Fei Xuan did not seem to believe him, he said indifferently, “Although my cultivation base is low, my strength’s actually comparable to Li Feng… With my current strength, it shouldn’t be a problem to win Li Feng.”
When Duan Ling Tian’s statement was heard by the others, including the Vice Palace Master of Heaven Palace, Xiao Yi, everyone thought he was just shamelessly boasting.
Fortunately, those who heard Duan Ling Tian’s words were those who joined the Heaven Palace. If it was heard by the people from the other three palaces, they would probably sneer and jeer at Duan Ling Tian.
At some point, even Xiao Yi began to frown.
‘He hasn’t even entered the Intermediate Refined Saint Stage? And his strength surpasses Li Feng? This Ling Tian has pretty good innate talent and strength. It’s just too bad that he boasts too much… Nevertheless, it’s understandable for young men to show off in front of females. However, he has gone overboard so it’s unlikely for Wang Fei Xuan to believe him.” As someone who had been through this, Xiao Yi could understand the current Duan Ling Tian. However, he did not think Duan Ling Tian’s words were true at all.
If his cultivation base was not at the Intermediate Refined Saint Stage, how could he be so at ease during the pressure test?
It should be noted the pressure in the pressure test was controlled by him personally. Unless they were powerhouses above the Intermediate Refined Saint Stage, it’s impossible for them to endure until the end as though they did not feel the pressure. That was why he was certain Duan Ling Tian must be above the Intermediate Refined Saint Stage! He had totally disregarded him when he said he had not even entered the Intermediate Refined Saint Stage.
As for the fact that Duan Ling Tian said he knew Li Feng, he did not totally dismiss it, but he had his reservations. He felt Duan Ling Tian might just be boasting.
Xiao Yi only thought this way because he did not understand Duan Ling Tian.
Currently, not only was Duan Ling Tian’s cultivation base not at the Intermediate Refined Saint Stage, but he was still a short distance away from the Early Refined Saint Stage. Although he was merely a short distance away, it would still require a lot of effort and opportunity to break through.
Duan Ling Tian’s cultivation base might not be high, but his strength was extraordinary because of the existence of the Sun True Origin.
With his current cultivation base at the peak of the Pristine Saint Stage, coupled with his strong body, he was almost invincible compared those below the Eminent Saint Stage even without utilizing the Jasper Celestial Sword.
Even ordinary Early Eminent Saint Stage Martial and Dao Cultivators might not necessarily be a match for him. Naturally, he was not boasting when he said he could defeat Li Feng. This was because Li Feng was him, and he was Li Feng!
Whereas the Li Feng whom the world knew was himself a year ago. His cultivation base back then was only at the Intermediate Pristine Saint Stage.
His current self had broken through to the peak of the Pristine Saint Stage. It was only natural his strength was no longer the same.
Currently, he would only need one move to defeat his former self.
Naturally, no one believed Duan Ling Tian’s truthful statement.
“I didn’t expect someone who looks proper like you with high innate talent and strong would like to boast so much,” Wang Fei Xuan said distastefully as she frowned.
‘At this time, no one believes me even when I’m telling the truth.’ Duan Ling Tian shook his head and sighed.
His words were too outrageous. Therefore, the entire group of people, including the Vice Palace Master of Heaven Palace, Xiao Yi, did not believe him at all.
“I really thought you’re friends with Li Feng… I didn’t expect you to be just boasting,” Wang Fei Xuan said somewhat disappointedly.
“That’s up to you to believe or not,” Duan Ling Tian said indifferently.
What else could he do? Admit that he was Li Feng?
“Let’s go! Follow me to the Heaven Palace,” Xiao Yi commanded. After that, he led Duan Ling Tian and the others toward the steep peak in the east. Heaven Palace stood there.
When they neared the peak, Duan Ling Tian could see sparsely populated buildings on it. When looked at from a distance, it seemed like an independent force’s estate.
However, it was no independent force’s estate but one of the palaces of the quasi third-rate force’s palaces, the Heaven Palace of Mystical Sky Mansion.
As soon as they arrived at a steep cliff halfway up the peak, Xiao Yi said to the young man who was closely following behind him, “Wang Pi, bring them to collect their identity order token and inform them of things to take note of.”
Duan Ling Tian had long discovered that young man had been following closely behind Xiao Yi ever since he appeared. It was the same with the other three Vice Palace Masters. They all had a young man closely following behind them.
However, the four young men remained silent from the beginning until the end.
After listening to Xiao Yi’s words, the young man nodded in response instantly. “Yes, master!”
It must be mentioned that everyone, including Duan Ling Tian and Wang Fei Xuan, was stunned when they heard Wang Pi’s words.
That Wang Pi who did not speak before this was actually the disciple of Vice Palace Master Xiao Yi?
“Ten of you shall follow Wang Pi to retrieve your identity order token. As for things to take note of, Wang Pi will inform you about them.”
After Xiao Yi spoke to them, he looked at Duan Ling Tian again. “Ling Tian, since you’ve rejected the three other palaces to join the Heaven Palace, I won’t mistreat you. After you’ve retrieved your identity order token, you’ll follow Wang Pi to the Heaven Palace’s Spirit Pool. I hope you’ll make a breakthrough there.”
After hearing Xiao Yi’s statement, Duan Ling Tian was stunned. He was baffled since it was his first time hearing about this.
Nevertheless, Duan Ling Tian quickly realized that everyone, including Wang Pi and Wang Fei Xuan, was looking at him enviously.
‘How can I forget the Spirit Pool? If I didn’t join the Heaven Palace and join the Earth Palace or Mystical Palace, I would definitely be able to enter their Spirit Pool! Although their Spirit Pool is inferior to the Heaven Palace’s Spirit Pool, it’s still better than nothing. It seems like I have no fate with the Spirit Pool.’ Feeling remorseful, Wang Fei Xuan glared at Duan Ling Tian.
In her opinion, if this Ling Tian fellow did not resist her charm, she would not have followed him and joined the Heaven Palace out of spite.
Fortunately, Duan Ling Tian was not aware of Wang Fei Xuan’s thoughts. Otherwise, he would definitely feel aggrieved since he was as innocent as innocent could be.
Xiao Yi left after speaking to Duan Ling Tian.
After Xiao Yi left, Duan Ling Tian looked at Wang Pi and asked curiously, “Senior Brother Wang Pi, what’s the Spirit Pool?”
Although Wang Pi had the appearance of a young man, Duan Ling Tian could sense he was not young at all.
In fact, he could faintly sense the aura of an Eminent Saint Stage on Wang Pi. That also meant that Wang Pi was most definitely a powerhouse at the Eminent Saint Stage.
“You don’t know what’s the Spirit Pool?” Wang Pi who was originally looking at Duan Ling Tian enviously was rendered speechless when he heard his words. This guy probably did not know about the benefits he was about to obtain.
The other nine people, including Wang Fei Xuan, had also heard Duan Ling Tian’s question. Everyone fell into a daze immediately. They were all staring at Duan Ling Tian speechlessly.
Which village did this bumpkin come from?
