Chapter 736: The Things Left Behind By Duan Ru Feng
Translator: KurazyTolanzuraytor Editor: Jay
Even though he was currently a ninth level Void Initiation Stage martial artist and had even obtained the honor of taking the top ranking in the Dynasty Martial Competition of the Darkhan Dynasty, he knew clearly in his heart that the young geniuses of the Foreign Lands were on a completely different level when compared to the Darkhan Dynasty’s young geniuses.
“According to the memories from the two lifetimes the Rebirth Martial Emperor experienced… Not to mention the shocking achievements he obtained before the age of 40 during his second lifetime… Even if it was other martial artists, there were many that had stepped into the Void Transformation Stage before the age of 40.”
At the Void Transformation Stage before the age of 40.
What sort of notion was that?
Duan Ling Tian didn’t dare continue thinking about it.
“Not to mention anything else, just amongst the people that I know… Even though Xue Nai’s current appearance is maintained at the age of 15 or 16, her true age is only a little over 20.
“Perhaps she’ll be able to smoothly step into the Void Transformation Stage before the age of 30!”
When he thought up to here, Duan Ling Tian seemed to have been doused by a bucket of cold water, and he felt his achievements in the past were utterly not worth mentioning before Han Xue Nai.
“Xue Nai, you really strike a blow to others.” Duan Ling Tian sighed in his heart and couldn’t help but recall that mysterious young girl.
When he recalled the young girl, Duan Ling Tian naturally couldn’t help but recall the three little fellows.
“Little Black, Little White, Little Gold… I wonder how they are now, and if they have entered the extremely dangerous place that Qing Nu mentioned?” Duan Ling Tian thought in his heart.
In next to no time, Duan Ling Tian pulled back his thoughts that had drifted far away, and his mood gradually calmed down.
“Right, that Spatial Ring my Father left for me.” As he rushed on along the way, the bored Duan Ling Tian withdrew the Spatial Ring Nie Yuan passed to him a few days ago, the Spatial Ring his father, Duan Ru Feng, had left for him.
A drop of fresh blood dripped down to establish ownership of the Spatial Ring, and then it gave Duan Ling Tian the feeling as if they were joined by blood.
After he established ownership of the Spatial Ring, Duan Ling Tian impatiently looked into the space within the Spatial Ring.
The entire large space was practically empty.
Within it was a jade slip, three pieces of ‘Talisman Paper’ that seemed like the talisman paper Daoists of his previous life used to deceive people, and a tightly closed thick book that flickered with a faint glow.
The book was completely jade green with a pattern that didn’t have anything special about it on the cover, yet Duan Ling Tian had instead felt that the flickering faint glow on its surface wasn’t ordinary.
“It’s a Voice Transmission Jade Slip?” In the end, Duan Ling Tian noticed that he only recognized the Voice Transmission Jade Slip amongst the things his father left behind. “I presume it’s the message my Father left me before leaving… I wonder what he said.”
Under his curiosity, Duan Ling Tian withdrew the Voice Transmission Jade Slip and fused his Origin Energy into it.
Instantly, a familiar voice clearly entered into Duan Ling Tian’s ears, and this voice was Duan Ling Tian’s father, Duan Ru Feng.
“Tian, when you hear this message, Father has already brought your mother, Jing Ru, and those two future daughters-in-law of mine to leave the Darkhan Dynasty…” The corners of Duan Ling Tian’s mouth twitched when he heard up to here.
Two future daughters-in-law?
He’s speaking about Xiao Lan and Bi Yao?
Is this still my real Father?
He wished for nothing more than to get far away from those two girls, yet his father had actually increased his troubles from the side. So how would he face those two girls in the future?
Left the Darkhan Dynasty?
Duan Ling Tian couldn’t help but gasp, and he was shocked to the point his heart shuddered.
Didn’t they go out to relax?
Why have they even left the Darkhan Dynasty?
After recovering from his shock, Duan Ling Tian’s feelings temporarily calmed down, and he pondered about the scenes after his deadbeat dad, Duan Ru Feng, had returned all those years ago.
Firstly, his Father had returned only after 23 years.
Secondly, his Father had only vaguely spoken of his experiences during those 23 years.
Duan Ling Tian still remembered what his Father had said that day.
“That year, I went to the Swamp of Death to find a Serene Epiphyllum for your mother and you, and during my journey, an unexpected event occurred… Because of some reasons, it caused me to lose control of myself, and I had no way of returning to look for you and your mother!”
“If it wasn’t for the sake of being able to return and look for you and your mother, I would have chosen to destroy myself with him… I would have entirely not needed to have been ordered about by him for many years and linger on alive until today!”
“His evil had already been rewarded with evil, and he had already been completely obliterated… Otherwise, Father might not be able to return and look for you and your mother.”
These were the words his Father had spoken to him all those years ago.
At that time, Duan Ling Tian thought that his Father had been trapped and enslaved by someone, whereas, that person’s strength was extremely strong, and his father had only just found the opportunity to escape and looked for him and his mother.
But when he thought about it now, there were numerous holes in this story.
Since that person was so formidable, how could he so easily be destroyed?
“Besides that, Father said that his Origin Energy doesn’t exist already… Because of those words of his, I subconsciously believed that his cultivation has been crippled. After my Spiritual Force searched his body and didn’t notice any traces of Origin Energy, I was even more sure that his cultivation had been crippled.” When he thought up to here, Duan Ling Tian frowned. “If Father really doesn’t have his cultivation, then how did he bring mother, Jing Ru, Xiao Lan, and Bi Yao to leave the Darkhan Dynasty?”
Even if his father had something to use as a means of transportation, experts were numerous as the clouds in the world outside the Darkhan Dynasty and how could it compare to the Crimson Sky Kingdom?
For a time, Duan Ling Tian couldn’t help but be slightly worried.
He was worried for the safety of his mother and father, and he was worried for the safety of Jing Ru, Xiao Lan, and Bi Yao.
“What’s going on?” Duan Ling Tian was completely unable to wrap his head around the matter, and he gradually stopped thinking about it and instead fused his Origin Energy a step further into the Voice Transmission Jade Slip to continue hearing his Father’s message.
“Are you bewildered about why I brought your mother and the others to leave the Darkhan Dynasty? Are you worried about our safety? If it’s this, you can be at ease, we’re extremely safe now.” The corners of Duan Ling Tian’s mouth twitched when he heard up to here.
At this moment, he really felt like his father was like a worm in his belly.
But he was able to perceive confidence from his father’s tone.
Duan Ling Tian continued listening.
“I know there are many questions in your heart, but it’s impossible for me to tell you now… Besides that, we won’t return to the Crimson Sky Kingdom in a short period of time. Perhaps, when we meet again, it will be in the world outside and not the Crimson Sky Kingdom.”
“The natural talent of those two girls, Xiao Lan and Bi Yao, is not bad, and if they’re polished slightly, they’ll surely achieve greatness! As for Jing Ru, her natural talent is still not bad, and coupled with your mother being used to having her by her side, I brought her along with us.”
“At this moment, I presume you’ve already seen the two things I’ve left behind for you… Firstly, the three ‘Talismans’ that are stacked together will perhaps be able to save your life three times, and the method of utilizing them is to toss out the Talisman towards your enemy before locking onto your opponent with your gaze and shouting the word ‘Descend’.”
Duan Ling Tian frowned.
Truthfully speaking, Talismans weren’t unfamiliar to him in the slightest.
Of course, it wasn’t because he possessed the memories of the Rebirth Martial Emperor, as there was utterly no record of Talismans in the memories of the Rebirth Martial Emperor.
The reason Talismans were familiar to him was because they weren’t anything rare in the earth of his previous life.
Especially in the eastern ancient country that he stayed in, Talismans were even extremely common things.
“I was slightly curious towards those three Talismans earlier, as they possessed scribbled writing that was extremely similar to the talismans of my previous life… Yet never had I imagined that they’re really Talismans!”
“Moreover, Father said that these three talismans are capable of saving my life three times? Could it be that those three talismans have some sort of profundity within them?” Duan Ling Tian’s heart was filled with questions, and he wished for nothing more than to take out one of the talismans and shout ‘descend’ as a test.
But his reason stopped him.
Subconsciously, he felt that those three talismans ought to not be wasted like this, and it should instead be used in the best situation.
“Why would Father possesses these talismans?” This was something that Duan Ling Tian was unable to wrap his head around of since the beginning.
Wasn’t his father a person without the slightest cultivation? So where did his father get these strange talismans?
After all, even if he searched through the two lifetimes worth of memories of the Rebirth Martial Emperor, he didn’t notice any records related to talismans… In other words, the Rebirth Martial Emperor has never heard of, let alone seen, any talismans in the Cloud Continent.
The scarcity of talismans could be seen from this.
Where did Father obtain these strange things?” Duan Ling Tian didn’t know whether to laugh or cry as he looked at the three talismans in the Spatial Ring.
No matter how he looked at them, these three talismans looked like the things those swindling Daoists used to deceive others in the eastern ancient country he was from on Earth.
“But Father ought to not deceive me.” In next to no time, Duan Ling Tian caught his breath, and he continued listening to the voice that sounded out from within the Void Transmission Jade Slip.
“Besides those three talismans, I’ve left behind an ‘Exquisite Jadebox’ for you, and you’ll know where I and your mother are after you have the ability to open it in the future.”
“Alright, I’ve almost finished saying what I want to. I’ll leave it at this… You don’t have to worry about us, we’re extremely well.”
“Besides that, I’ve still not met the other two daughters-in-law of mine. Stinking brat, bring them over to meet me soon…” The voice stopped here abruptly.
Duan Ling Tian laughed bitterly.
Based on his father’s tone, his father seemed extremely free and unrestrained.
“This is the Exquisite Jadebox? I thought it was a book.” Duan Ling Tian’s gaze slowly descended onto the thing in the Spatial Ring that looked like a book.
With a though, Duan Ling Tian withdrew it from the Spatial Ring.
“How cold!” When the Exquisite Jadebox entered into his hand, it felt icy cold, and the icy cold feeling spread throughout his entire body in the blink of an eye, causing him to be unable to refrain from shivering.
After carefully inspecting it for a while, Duan Ling Tian was able to notice a fine split at the center of the Exquisite Jadebox, and it was precisely the split that appeared from the box closing from together from up and down.
“The message Father left behind in the Voice Transmission Jade Slip said that when I have the ability to open this jade box, then this and that? Just a jade box like this? I can casually…” Duan Ling Tian muttered and didn’t continued after this point.
Because at the same time that he muttered, his hand’s hand already been coiled with Origin Energy as he tried to open the jade box.
But the outcome was the jade box didn’t move an inch, and it was utterly impossible to open.
