Chapter 1024: Duan Ling Tian’s Worry
Translator: EndlessFantasy Translation Editor: EndlessFantasy Translation
After Feng Tian Wu unleashed the First Level Monarch Stage Fire Profundity, it gave birth to the First Level Monarch Stage Sword Profundity.
The power of the two First Level Monarch Stage Profundities added up together was equivalent to the strength of 4000 ancient horned dragons.
“Tian Wu!” Duan Ling Tian was completely astounded when he saw how Feng Tian Wu gave rise to the Wind Profundity through the Fire Profundity. At the same time, his expression was grave as he warned, “Stop communicating and unleashing your Fire Profundity if it’s not necessary!”
At this moment, the Spiritual Energy Duan Ling Tian extended out could clearly feel the agitation of the power from the Fire Spirit Body in Feng Tian Wu’s body. It was as though it was going to burst out of her body.
For a moment, he was deeply concerned, and worry was clearly written on his face.
He did not want Feng Tian Wu to perish.
“Okay.” The moment Feng Tian Wu heard Duan Ling Tian’s words and saw the anxious look on his face, a contented smile crept up on her delicate face as she nodded obediently.
At the same time, the Fire Profundity on her body dissipated along with the Sword Profundity.
“That’s incredible!” Shock was visible on Feng Tian Wu’s delicate face when she withdrew the two Profundities. “Who left behind the word ‘Sword’? It actually allowed me — a martial artist who has never comprehended any Sword Force before — to comprehend a Sword Concept that’s at the same level as my Fire Concept in one fell swoop!” There was no doubt Feng Tian Wu was shocked by her own experience.
“There’s a passage written over there. Go read it, and you’ll know who left this behind,” Duan Ling Tian said to Feng Tian Wu as he glanced at the corner of the mountain wall carved with the word ‘Sword’.
Meanwhile, he was still bewildered.
“I wonder how the word ‘Sword’ merged the Sword Concept with Feng Tian Wu’s Fire Concept? Could it be because of her Fire Spirit Body?” Duan Ling Tian speculated on his own.
“Otherwise, why didn’t the word ‘Sword’ merge the Sword Concept with my other Concepts? Perhaps, it’s because Tian Wu has never comprehended the Sword Force before so the Sword Concept she comprehended automatically took the initiative to merge with her Fire Concept?” Duan Ling Tian speculated again. This seemed plausible as well.
The moment Feng Tian Wu heard Duan Ling Tian’s words, her eyes instantly lit up. She glanced at the side of the mountain wall nearby.
Her gaze soon landed on the words that were too far away to read.
With a leap, Feng Tian Wu flew out like a fiery elf. She arrived at the mountain wall and proceeded to study the passage on the wall.
The passage was left behind by the Sword Saint Feng Qing Yang.
Similar to Duan Ling Tian, Feng Tian Wu was overwhelmed with confusion when she finished reading the passage.
“Cloud Continent is just a mortal continent? The martial artists on Cloud Continent are Mortal Stage Martial Cultivators? Dao Martial Saint Land? Ascend to Heaven and become an immortal?” Feng Tian Wu’s delicate face was filled with bewilderment. Compared to Duan Ling Tian, she was even more confused.
After all, Duan Ling Tian had encountered someone whom he suspected originated from the Dao Martial Saint Land— the black-clad middle-aged man who turned Zhao Ming into a Human Puppet.
Based on the black-clad middle-aged man’s words, Duan Ling Tian learned about the origin of the three talismans his miserly father gave him as well as some information about the Dao Martial Saint Land. For instance, the talisman was called Dao Talisman, and it was drawn by some Saint Rudiment Stage Dao Cultivator.
At this moment, Xiong Quan who had devoted all of his attention to the word ‘Sword’ on the canyon wall had also finally woken up. He exhaled deeply as though a heavy weight had been removed from his mind.
He had a blank look on his face.
“What do those few sentences mean?” Xiong Quan muttered to himself with a frown on his face. He seemed to be deep in thought.
He had a feeling his Sword Concept would definitely progress as long as he could decipher the meaning of those few sentences, and the increase in level would not be limited to just one or two levels.
“Xiong Quan!” A voice sounded and took Xiong Quan by surprise. He instinctively looked toward the direction of the sound. A handsome and charming purple-clad young man with a graceful bearing stood there.
Faced with the purple-clad young man, Xiong Quan did not dare to be tardy. He quickly greeted him respectfully, “Young Master.”
“Xiong Quan, how did you find this place?” Duan Ling Tian asked curiously.
In his opinion, Xiong Quan discovering this place did not only bring great fortune to himself but to him and Feng Tian Wu as well.
Moreover, it would also bring great fortune to the others that come here in the future.
In this canyon, the gigantic word ‘Sword’ on the wall could be regarded as a priceless treasure. It could change a person’s life to a certain extent.
Just take Xiong Quan as an example.
Logically, it was almost impossible for Xiong Quan to comprehend the Void Transformation Concept. However, due to the word ‘Sword’ on the canyon wall, he managed to comprehend the First Level Advance Sword Concept in one fell swoop. Moreover, it also brought out his potential in the Sword Art.
Let alone comprehending a higher level of Sword Concept, he might even be able to comprehend the Sword Profundity in the future.
That word ‘Sword’ on the wall had allowed Xiong Quan to be reborn again.
“According to Sword Saint Feng Qing Yang, it’ll be enough for us to traverse the entire Dao Martial Saint Land once we’ve comprehended half of the Sword Art contained in the word ‘Sword’ that he left behind! Based on this sentence, we can deduce, whether it’s me, Tian Wu or Xiong Quan, we’ve only managed to comprehend a tiny bit of the Sword Art contained in the word ‘Sword’ he left behind.” It was not difficult for Duan Ling Tian to come up with this theory.
“Young Master.” Xiong Quan replied respectfully to Duan Ling Tian’s question, “I found this canyon when I went hunting in the mountains two weeks ago. When I arrived here, I was attracted by the word ‘Sword’ on the wall. When I finally regained my senses, I discovered my Seventh Level Elementary Sword Concept had become the First Level Advance Sword Concept!!” Xiong Quan’s face still held a trace of astonishment when he recounted his experience.
Duan Ling Tian nodded before he raised a brow and smiled. “Xiong Quan, you’ve already comprehended the Seventh Level Elementary Sword Concept before you even found this place? Looks like you didn’t slack at all in these few years!”
“I’ve always hoped that I’ll have the opportunity to stay by your side in the future to help relieve you of your daily worries, Young Master. For this reason, I didn’t dare to slack at all,” Xiong Quan said solemnly and sincerely from the bottom of his heart. It stunned Duan Ling Tian for a moment before warmth flooded his heart.
“Now that your Dantian is healed, your cultivation base will recover in no time. You can continue to be by my side from now on.” Duan Ling Tian smiled.
The moment Xiong Quan heard Duan Ling Tian’s words, his eyes instantly lit up, and he quickly expressed his gratitude. “Thank you, Young Master.”
Initially, he did not think Duan Ling Tian would allow him to stay by his side even if his Dantian was healed since his cultivation base remained the same. However, he did not expect Young Master would take the initiative and allow him to stay by his side.
This made him frantic with joy.
“Who else knows about this place apart from you?” Duan Ling Tian asked again.
“Ten days ago, I brought Er Hu here. Originally, my intention was to let him comprehend the Sword Concept with the help of the word ‘Sword’, but who would have thought he would immediately pass out for three days and three nights as soon as he laid eyes on that word.” When Xiong Quan reached this part of his sentence, guilt could be seen on his face.
“Passed out?” Duan Ling Tian was a little surprised. After pondering for a moment, he could easily guess the reason.
‘It must be his Spiritual Energy… Er Hu’s Spiritual Energy is only at the Origin Core Stage. It would be difficult for him to bear the Sword Art knowledge contained in the word ‘Sword’. As for Xiong Quan, although his Dantian has been crippled, and he no longer has his cultivation base, his Spiritual Energy is not affected at all. It’s still at the Void Prying Stage,” Duan Ling Tian thought to himself.
“Big Brother Duan, do you think the message left behind by the Sword Saint Feng Qing Yang is trustworthy? There are actually another two Mortal Continents — similar to our Cloud Continent — we’ve never heard of before in this world, not mentioning that Dao Martial Saint Land or something.” At this moment, Feng Tian Wu had returned and was staring at Duan Ling Tian with shock clearly written on her delicate face.
“Tian Wu, only you can decide if it’s trustworthy or not. As for me, I won’t say it’s untrustworthy until I’ve searched through every nook and cranny of the world,” Duan Ling Tian replied unhurriedly.
Feng Tian Wu nodded her head. She completely agreed with what he had just said.
“This canyon wall that’s inscribed with the word ‘Sword’…” Duan Ling Tian’s gaze landed on the mountain wall nearby. His eyes gleamed as a crazy idea formed in his mind. In the next moment, he had already flown out.
A sword appeared out of thin air in his hand. It was none other than the Quasi Royal Grade Spirit Sword.
When Duan Ling Tian’s hand shook, the Quasi Royal Grade Spirit Sword’s sword ray swept out and sliced the side of the canyon wall that contained the word ‘Sword’.
“Big Brother Duan intends to cut down that canyon wall and bring it back with him?” Feng Tian Wu could easily guess his intention as she watched him.
She must admit it was a crazy idea!
However, if she had to be honest with herself, she would have done the same thing.
Just the fact that she could give rise to the Sword Concept with her Fire Concept alone was enough to call the mountain wall that was inscribed with the word ‘Sword’ a priceless treasure!
Unfortunately, an idea might be good, but it did not mean it was always possible to accomplish it.
The sword ray Duan Ling Tian released landed on the mountain wall that was inscribed with the word ‘Sword’. However, it seemed to have hit something hard, and it did not even leave any marks behind.
Clang! Clang! Clang! Clang! Clang!
Duan Ling Tian refused to give up. He struck at the wall in every single angle to slice it out. Even so, he noticed half of the mountain wall around the word ‘Sword’ was too hard for him to destroy.
“Unless I move this mountain with me… But the Spatial Ring won’t be able to contain it even if I can move it.” Duan Ling Tian was vexed.
Even a Quasi Royal Grade Spirit Weapon Spatial Ring could not accommodate such a large mountain.
