Chapter 1012: The Regeneration of a Severed Leg
Translator: EndlessFantasy Translation Editor: EndlessFantasy Translation
Although Duan Ling Tian knew how amazing the Immortal Spirit Herb’s medicinal efficacy was, he only knew about it through the Rebirth Martial Emperor’s memory.
Even the Rebirth Martial Emperor had never seen the real Immortal Spirit Herb before, let alone witnessed the Immortal Spirit Herb’s excellent medicinal efficacy. What he knew were all limited to legends he had heard.
‘Chi! Chi! Chi!’
Suddenly, a faint but clear sound entered Duan Ling Tian’s ears and caught his attention.
Duan Ling Tian was surprised to discover bone, flesh, and skin were speedily growing out from Hu Li’s wound on his severed leg wherever the green glow converged.
The bone, flesh, and skin appeared out of nowhere as though they grew naturally from Hu Li’s body, and was no different from the real thing.
“Woah…” Hu Li was completely stunned.
His leg… his leg was really growing!
His leg was not a sapling nor a seedling but real human flesh, bone, and skin. They were regenerating rapidly before his eyes.
His thigh grew first before his knee. After his knee had grown, his calf followed. After his calf was completely formed, the green glow dimmed slightly and the regeneration rate of his foot slowed down.
Hu Li could not help but hold his breath as he looked at it.
He was truly worried the green glow would vanish.
He had somewhat figured out the green glow converging on his severed leg was the Immortal Spirit Herb’s medicinal efficacy. His severed leg would stop regenerating as soon as it vanished.
“This is too magical!” In less than half an hour, Duan Ling Tian witnessed a miracle. It was the complete regeneration of a severed leg.
Duan Ling Tian’s breath quickened when he watched Hu Li’s foot grow.
According to the Rebirth Martial Emperor’s memory, although the Royal Grade Resurrection Pill he refined in his peak was described as having the ability to revive a dead person and grow flesh on bones, there was a limitation to that.
‘First of all, reviving a dead person, in this case, refers to those who are only near death, that means those who have yet to completely lose their lives… It’s definitely impossible for the Royal Grade Resurrection Pill to revive a person who has completely lost his life.’
‘Second, growing flesh on bones. It refers to cases where one’s body part is missing a piece of flesh due to injuries… It’ll be difficult to grow back a severed leg in Hu Li’s case.’
Although the Royal Grade Resurrection Pill was the top Healing Medicinal Pill in Cloud Continent according to the Rebirth Martial Emperor’s memory, its medicinal efficacy was not enough to grow bones.
However, Duan Ling Tian witnessed everything with his own eyes.
‘Although the Rebirth Martial Emperor lived two lives, he had many regrets in his lives…Not being able to see the legendary Immortal Spirit Herb, and witness the legendary Immortal Spirit Herb’s medicinal efficacy was his biggest regrets in his lives!’ Duan Ling Tian’s heart jolted. He knew the Rebirth Martial Emperor’s regrets in his two lives like the back of his hand since he inherited his memory.
‘Chi! Chi! Chi!’
The bone continued growing as flesh and skin appeared wherever the green glow passed. Soon after, Hu Li’s foot was completely formed.
At the same time, the clear and crisp sound stopped abruptly as the green glow faded and vanished.
Naturally, the only flaw of Hu Li’s new leg was that it was too fair.
Instead of calling it fair, it should be described as tender. His skin was like a baby’s skin. It was fair, smooth, and fragile.
“Haha… Hu Li, the skin on your leg is even fairer than those little ladies’!” Duan Ling Tian laughed out loud as he teased Hu Li.
Hu Li began to blush when he heard what Duan Ling Tian said, but there was excitement in his eyes.
‘Whoosh! Whoosh! Whoosh!’
Hu Li stomped hard with both his legs and flew around Phecda Hall. He flew to the left and sometimes to the right, his speed was as quick as lightning.
After testing it out, Hu Li discovered his new leg exceeded the leg he usually trained with when it came to strength and explosive power!
“Hahaha… I, Hu Li, am no longer a cripple! I’m no longer a cripple!!” Hu Li laughed heartily as he halted his movement.
As he laughed, tears began to fill his eyes. Those were tears of joy.
Throughout the years, he had lived his life trying to be strong and even set an extremely strict goal for himself which was to surpass Duan Ling Tian one day.
On the surface, it seemed like he did not really seem to care about losing a leg.
However, how could he not care deep in his heart?!
If one had a choice, who would be willing to be a cripple who lost his leg?
The emotions he had suppressed earlier had been accumulating in his chest. Now that he could finally stop the suppressing it, it was unstoppable. It took him a long time before he finally calmed down.
Duan Ling Tian wore a smile on his face as he looked at Hu Li’s newly regenerated leg, he was happy for Hu Li.
Eventually, Hu Li tamped down the excitement within him after laughing for a while.
“Thank you, Duan Ling Tian.” He looked at Duan Ling Tian and thanked him earnestly.
If it was not for Duan Ling Tian, he would be a cripple his entire life!
However, Duan Ling Tian allowed him to be an ordinary person once again. He was grateful from the bottom of his heart. From today onward, he no longer had to endure judgmental looks from people.
He, Hu Li, could finally stand up like a real man!
“There’s no need for formalities between you and me.” Duan Ling Tian shook his head. He seemed to recall something and could not help but sigh. “Unfortunately, Shi Lan… Although the Immortal Spirit Herb I have is magical, it can’t save Shi Lan’s life.”
“It’s my fault back then for asking you to spare Shao Fei’s life… Otherwise, Shi Lan wouldn’t be dead.” A silhouette appeared in Hu Li’s mind when he heard what Duan Ling Tian said.
He did not know when but there were tears dripping from his eyes. He seemed agitated.
If he had helped Duan Ling Tian kill Shao Fei back then, whatever happened could have been avoided. Shi Lan would not have died, and his leg would not be severed.
All these years, he only had one thought whenever he looked at his severed leg.
‘It’s my fault that my leg is severed!’
“It’s all in the past now, don’t blame yourself… Furthermore, who would’ve thought Shao Fei would bite the hand that fed him and turned around to harm both his life-savers?” Duan Ling Tian comforted.
Hu Li nodded, it took him a while to calm down.
“Duan Ling Tian, why don’t you visit the Sect Leader? He talks about you all the time,” Hu Li asked Duan Ling Tian after he calmed down.
The Sect Leader he was talking about was Mo Yu, the Seven Star Sword Sect’s current Sect Leader.
The lowly position of the outer court disciple in Seven Star Sword Sect, who had disguised himself as a horse-keeper, had skyrocketed, and he had unwittingly become the Seven Star Sword Sect’s new Sect Leader.
“There’s no need for that… I’ll be back when I have the time in the future.” Duan Ling Tian shook his head and left Phecda Hall after bidding farewell to Hu Li. He came quickly and left just as quickly.
Hu Li, who had followed Duan Ling Tian out of Phecda Hall, could not help but feel stunned as he witnessed him disappear before his eyes.
“How powerful is Duan Ling Tian’s current ability?” Hu Li inhaled a cold breath as shock filled his eyes.
“I, Hu Li, have lived a good life for knowing a monster like Duan Ling Tian…” The shock in Hu Li’s eyes faded away and was replaced with a gleam.
A hint of a smile could be seen on his face.
After leaving Phecda Hall, Duan Ling Tian did not meet Feng Tian Wu right away.
“Since I’m here, I should visit Peak Master Qin Xiang and ask if she knows which force do Ke Er and Little Fei belong to in the Foreign Lands…” Two silhouettes appeared in Duan Ling Tian’s mind. They were his two fiancees, Ke Er and Li Fei.
Back then, Ke Er and Li Fei followed Qin Xiang to the Foreign Lands’ force that her Big Sister was in to celebrate her birthday.
Ever since then, Ke Er and Li Fei had stayed at the Foreign Lands’ force and did not return.
Naturally, it was impossible he did not miss the two ladies at all.
“Peak Master Qin Xiang!” Duan Ling Tian entered Alkaid Hall directly without further delay and found Qin Xiang.
Qing Xiang happened to be sitting at Alkaid Hall’s pavilion and drinking tea. She was initially surprised when she saw the uninvited guest who appeared before her eyes, but it turned to relief when she saw who it was.
However, there was still a hint of shock left in her eyes.
“Seems like your ability has progressed a lot since you participated in the Martial Competition of the Ten Dynasties in Foreign Lands,” Qin Xiang exclaimed as she solemnly looked at Duan Ling Tian.
“Yes.” Duan Ling Tian nodded and said directly, “Peak Master Qin Xiang, I…”
“I know what you’re going to ask,” Qin Xiang said directly. “You want to ask me… which Foreign Lands’ force Ke Er and Li Fei are in, am I right?”
“That’s right.” Duan Ling Tian nodded.
“Please don’t laugh at what I’m going to tell you… Although I’ve been to the Foreign Lands’ force my Big Sister is in, I’ve no idea which force it is.” Qin Xiang smiled wryly.
One must say Duan Ling Tian did not expect such an answer from Qin Xiang.
He thought it was unbelievable!
‘Didn’t Qin Xiang go to the Foreign Lands’ force?’
‘How could she not know which force it is?’
“I really don’t know which force it is… The only thing I know is the force is located in a snow peak, almost all the disciples are female, and they wear white,” Qin Xiang said.
“Female sect?” Duan Ling Tian asked curiously with a raised eyebrow.
“Not exactly… Apart from the snow peak, there’s also a majestic volcano in the force! When I was celebrating my Big Sister’s birthday, the people from the volcano were there as well. They were a group of fiery red-clad male martial artists.”
“It seems like people from the volcano and snow peak belong to the same force,” Qin Xiang added.
“Snow peak? Volcano?” Duan Ling Tian could not help but frown when he heard what she said. Meanwhile, he was browsing through the Rebirth Martial Emperor’s memory but he did not get anything.
There was no such sect in the Rebirth Martial Emperor’s memory.
