Chapter 1721: Jealousy From the Disciples of Heaven Palace
Translator: EndlessFantasy Translation Editor: EndlessFantasy Translation
“The Spirit Pool is located at the mouth of the spring of the quasi grade three Saint Stones reserve. Every six months, it’ll be completely filled with Heaven and Earth Spirit Energy… If you can cultivate in there, you’ll yield twice the result with half the effort! Naturally, Spirit Pools can only greatly increase the cultivation base for Martial or Dao Cultivators below the Eminent Saint Stage, there won’t be much of an improvement if people above the Eminent Saint Stage go in. Hence, the Mystical Sky Mansion’s Spirit Pool generally would refuse entry to those powerhouses above the Eminent Saint Stage,” Wang Pi explained patiently.
“Even if people above the Eminent Saint Stage are refused entry for a reason, it doesn’t mean anyone below the Eminent Saint Stage would also be able to enter the Spirit Pool… There are only four Spirit Pools in the entire Mystical Sky Mansion. They’re at the Heaven Palace, Earth Palace, Mystical Palace, and Yellow Palace. Moreover, only one person may enter and cultivate inside every six months. Hence, under ordinary circumstances, unless it’s someone whose innate talent and strength have reached a certain level, they wouldn’t be granted entry into the Spirit Pool,” Wang Pi continued.
‘The mouth of the spring of a quasi grade three Saint Stones reserve? Filled with Heaven and Earth Spirit Energy every six months?’ After listening to Wang Pi’s words, Duan Ling Tian’s eyes lit up immediately.
Although the cultivation environment inside the Seven Treasures Exquisite Pagoda was better the higher the level, the third level of the Seven Treasures Exquisite Pagoda was still lacking compared to the mouth of the spring of the quasi grade three Saint Stones reserve.
‘When I was just worrying about how long it’ll take me to break through to the Refined Saint Stage, Vice Palace Master Xiao Yi gave me such a fortuitous opportunity… Perhaps, by immersing myself in the Spirit Pool, I’ll be able to progress to the Early Refined Saint Stage in one go.’ With that thought in mind, Duan Ling Tian was naturally thrilled.
He finally understood why Wang Fei Xuan and the others were jealous of him. The rarity of being able to enter the Spirit Pool was something deserving of the others’ jealousy.
“You’re really lucky, the Spirit Pool could only be formed by quasi grade three Saint Stones reserve… In the Lower Province of the Dao Martial Saint Land, only quasi third-rate forces have quasi grade three Saint Stones reserves,” Wang Fei Xuan said in a jealous manner as she looked at Duan Ling Tian.
Nevertheless, as she spoke, she seemed to have recalled something. Her eyes lit up while she leaned forward toward Duan Ling Tian and said, “What if… You offer me your chance to enter the Spirit Pool. How about that? As long as you’re willing, I’ll give you a chance to pursue me?”
If an ordinary guy heard Wang Fei Xuan’s words, he would probably be thrilled. However, to Duan Ling Tian, the allure Wang Fei Xuan possessed was far inferior to the Spirit Pool.
Both his fiancees, Ke’Er and Li Fei, as well as his girlfriend, Feng Tian Wu, none of them was inferior to Wang Fei Xuan.
Due to that reason, Duan Ling Tian merely responded to her indifferently when faced with her attempt to seduce him, “Not interested.”
Wang Fei Xuan did not expect Duan Ling Tian would reject her so directly. She instantly glared at Duan Ling Tian, doubting her own charms.
‘No! I’m sure the problem isn’t me… It must be him! I’m sure he doesn’t fancy women.’ With that thought in mind, Wang Fei Xuan felt goosebumps all over her body.
Fortunately, Duan Ling Tian was unaware of Wang Fei Xuan’s thoughts. Otherwise, he would definitely give this woman a slap for questioning his sexuality.
While leading Duan Ling Tian and the others as they rose into the air, Wang Pi said with a dignified expression, “Let’s go! I’ll first bring you all to retrieve your identity order token. From today onward, you’ll be the Heaven Palace’s disciples… Within the Mystical Sky Mansion, you may compete with the other Heaven Palace’s disciples or the disciples of the other three palaces. However, once you leave the estate, I hope you’ll remember you’re disciples of the Mystical Sky Mansion. All of you must stay united.”
Duan Ling Tian and the others nodded to show they understood.
Under Wang Pi’s guidance, they quickly retrieved their identity order token.
After that, Wang Pi led them to their residence. It was a row of independent courtyards located halfway uphill.
There was a house inside every courtyard and a large open space in front of the house. It should be enough space to practice martial arts.
After settling Wang Fei Xuan and the others before he settled Duan Ling Tian in, Wang Pi said to Duan Ling Tian, “Ling Tian, the next time the Spirit Pool opens is in ten days… I’ll come for you at that time.”
“Alright,” Duan Ling Tian responded and then watched as Wang Pi left. He turned around to retreat into his house after Wang Pi disappeared from his line of sight.
The minute he entered the room, Duan Ling Tian’s ears twitched as he heard footsteps behind him before he even managed to close his door.
Merely by listening to the footsteps, he could guess who it was.
Such light footsteps obviously belonged to a woman, and a woman who would come to him at such a time could only be that Great Young Miss of the Tyrannic Saber Mansion, Wang Fei Xuan.
“Great Young Miss Wang, is there anything I can do for you?” Turning around, Duan Ling Tian looked at Wang Fei Xuan with a frown. Although Wang Fei Xuan was pretty, it made him annoyed that she was sticking to him for so long.
Wang Fei Xuan reached out and tugged a loose strand of her long hair from behind her ears and then said to Duan Ling Tian, “Name a price.”
“What price?” Duan Ling Tian was stunned.
“Spirit Pool.” Wang Fei Xuan reminded.
Duan Ling Tian finally understood when he heard that. This Great Young Miss Wang was still hung up on the Spirit Pool to the extent that she came to ask him to name a price in exchange for the chance to enter the Spirit Pool.
“Great Young Miss Wang, I definitely want to go to the Spirit Pool… If there’s nothing else, please leave!” Duan Ling Tian’s face sank as he sent her away.
Wang Fei Xuan did not expect Duan Ling Tian to be so difficult to talk to, she had already humbled herself, but he did not show her any courtesy. She instantly yelled angrily, “Ling Tian, you asshole!!”
Once she finished speaking, Wang Fei Xuan turned around and left, huffing and puffing.
Duan Ling Tian could not help but laugh when he heard Wang Fei Xuan’s words. He was an asshole for not giving up the Spirit Pool for her?
What about her domineering attitude?
After shaking his head, Duan Ling Tian could not be bothered with Wang Fei Xuan anymore. He shut his doors and entered the third level of the Seven Treasures Exquisite Pagoda.
Ten days in the outside world was equivalent to fifty days inside the third level of the Seven Treasures Exquisite Pagoda. It was almost two months, it would be enough for Duan Ling Tian to improve on his cultivation base. If that was the case, it would help him obtain a qualitative leap in the Spirit Pool.
‘With the dense Heaven and Earth Spirit Energy inside the Spirit Pool, as long as I can further improve my cultivation base, it’s not impossible for me to break through to the Refined Saint Stage with the aid from the Spirit Pool!’ With that thought in mind, Duan Ling Tian fully immersed himself into his cultivation.
Naturally, Duan Ling Tian who was immersed in his cultivation was unaware news of him obtaining the spot to enter the Spirit Pool had spread in the Heaven Palace.
Spirit Pool was a special place in the Heaven Palace because there were no Heaven Palace’s disciples below the Eminent Saint Stage who did not want to enter the pool.
Due to this reason, the opportunity to enter the Spirit Pool every six month was determined through competition.
This time, many people were gearing up and preparing to fight for the opportunity to enter the Spirit Pool in ten days. They did not expect someone would show up halfway and took their chances of entering the Spirit Pool away. Moreover, he was just a new disciple who had just joined the Mystical Sky Mansion.
Complaints were heard all over the Heaven Palace immediately.
“Why is a disciple who has just joined the Heaven Palace allowed to enter the Spirit Pool?” Many of the Heaven Palace’s disciples’ tones were sour and bitter.
“I heard that he’s the most outstanding among the thirty-seven Saint Stage geniuses below forty years of age who joined our Mystical Sky Mansion this time. Due to him selecting the Heaven Palace, Vice Palace Master Xiao gave the opportunity to enter the Spirit Pool to him.”
“As it turns out, it’s Vice Palace Master Xiao’s decision.”
“Humph! So what if it’s the decision of Vice Palace Master Xiao! He, as a rookie who has just joined the Mystical Sky Mansion, doesn’t even know his own ability. How’s he qualified to enter the Spirit Pool?”
“What? Unless you want to fight for a chance to enter the Spirit Pool? Let me tell you this again, it’s the decision of Vice Palace Master Xiao. It’s futile unless he’s willing to give up this chance. Otherwise, those who try to fight him for it will definitely rouse the anger of the Vice Palace Master… It’s not a good thing to anger him.”
“Hehe… Since the Vice Palace Master has spoken, naturally, I wouldn’t harbor any more ideas about entering the Spirit Pool. However, it shouldn’t be a problem to spar with him since we’re genuinely curious as to what kind of talent does he have that Vice Palace Master treats him so nicely?”
“You can even think of that… How cunning!!”
All over the Heaven Palace, similar words could be heard.
Some Heaven Palace’s disciples at the Mastery Refined Saint Stage and at the peak of the Refined Saint Stage even prepared themselves to see the strength of that talented Martial Cultivator, Ling Tian, who had taken their chances to enter the Spirit Pool away.
Duan Ling Tian was woken up after cultivating in the third level of the Seven Treasures Exquisite Pagoda for a month. He felt a slight improvement to his cultivation base.
“Who’s that?” Duan Ling Tian could hear the commotion outside even though he was inside the Seven Treasures Exquisite Pagoda.
“…If it’s up to me, I think we should just break in! There’s no point in just waiting here.”
“Yes. In a few days’ time, Senior Brother Wang Pi would be here to bring him to the Spirit Pool. At that time, it’ll be too late. It wouldn’t be enough even if we could teach him a lesson.”
“That’s right. He definitely won’t feel the pain if we teach him a lesson after he enjoys the Heaven and Earth Spirit Energy in the Spirit Pool. In fact, he might become even more arrogant.”
All those voices were clearly heard by Duan Ling Tian.
At once, Duan Ling Tian understood what was going on. It was none other than those Refined Saint Stage Heaven Palace’s disciples who were dissatisfied about him getting the chance to enter the Spirit Pool. In turn, they had gathered in front of his door, intending to teach him a lesson.
“Teach me a lesson?” Due to the fact that only Martial and Dao Cultivators below the Eminent Saint Stage would obtain significant improvement after entering the Spirit Pool, therefore those who blocked his door and wanted to teach him a lesson must be those below the Eminent Saint Stage. With that thought in mind, a sneer appeared on Duan Ling Tian’s face.
Since he knew what was going on now, Duan Ling Tian left the Seven Treasures Exquisite Pagoda and opened his door.
The minute he opened his door, Duan Ling Tian saw there were a few people near his door. The moment they saw the door open, they took a few steps back subconsciously.
