Chapter 1045: Falling Unconscious Again
Translator: EndlessFantasy Translation Editor: EndlessFantasy Translation
Feng Tong was the strongest person in North Nether Sect. He was at the First Level Martial Emperor Stage.
Even at the northern desert in the Foreign Lands, no one would be able to stop the sword he slashed out with his full strength with just their bare hand.
However, there was somebody in this small and remote kingdom that did not have many Void Prying Stage martial artists who could stop his sword that contained his full strength with just a bare hand.
One should know, his sword contained the strength of 7,000 ancient horned dragons.
However, somebody had managed to stop his sword.
“You… A-Are you really Duan Ling Tian?” He asked cautiously as he looked at the purple-clad young man with purple hair and emotionless blood red eyes.
He could not believe this at all.
Duan Ling Tian, a Void Transformation Stage martial artist whom he did not take seriously from the very beginning, could actually stop his sword even though he was at the First Level Martial Emperor Stage.
The answer that awaited Feng Tong was Duan Ling Tian’s palm. To be more precise, Duan Ling Tian’s palm after he had been devilified.
Duan Ling Tian slapped a palm out. A flood of black energy drowned Feng Tong before he even realized what was happening.
Soon after, Feng Tong had strangely transformed into a human skeleton. All his blood, flesh, and organs had vanished without a trace.
Feng Tong’s skeleton was still holding the sword. He was in the position he was in before his death.
One could still see the three fragments inside the skeleton — one Profundity Fragment and two Concept Fragments.
Suddenly, a faint sound resonated in the air. It came from Feng Tong’s skeleton that trembled before it suddenly turned into dust that was scattered by the wind.
The fall of another Martial Emperor.
Only the Profundity and Concept fragments were left — one First Level Monarch Stage Profundity Fragment and two Ninth Level Advance Concept Fragments.
Three fragments landed in the Imperial Palace of the Crimson Sky Kingdom. Duan Ling Tian who had been devilified ignored it as though he found the three fragments to be beneath him.
“Barf!” The sound of someone throwing up took Duan Ling Tian by surprise.
In the distance, he saw the only remaining elder from North Nether Sect sneakily attack Feng Tian Wu.
After he had successfully made the sneak attack, he instantly fled and disappeared before Duan Ling Tian’s eyes. It was as though he was never there at all.
Meanwhile, Fire Spirit Body’s energy inside Feng Tian Wu — who was injured to the point she threw up blood — that was temporarily suppressed finally erupted.
For a moment, Feng Tian Wu was enveloped by the boundless flame that soared up into the sky.
Red spots appeared on her skin that was as delicate as polished jade. The spots increased as time went by and merged together. It turned her skin into a fiery red color.
The devilified Duan Ling Tian was originally glaring at Feng Tian Wu fiercely as though he was about to attack her. However, he suddenly shook his head as a light appeared in his blood red eyes. He muttered, “T-Tian W…Wu… T-Tian W-Wu…”
“B-Big Brother D-Duan…” Feng Tian Wu could feel her body heating up. Even her soul felt like it was burning as well. She was slowly beginning to lose consciousness.
At this moment, she felt her eyelids getting heavier and heavier, making her feel sleepy.
She knew in heart that if she fell asleep it was unlikely she would ever wake up again.
“B-Big… B-Big Brother D-Duan…” Feng Tian Wu began to lose her consciousness. She felt as though she was drowning in a sea of fire. Her consciousness would be destroyed before long.
Boom! Boom! Boom! Boom! Boom!
The flame on Feng Tian Wu soared up again and again. Every time it soared, it would cause turbulence in the air as heat waves rolled out.
“T-Tian Wu…” Duan Ling Tian shook his head again before he flew out to her.
It was as though he did not notice the boundless flame that was soaring from Feng Tian Wu’s body at all. He entered the area obscured by the boundless flame as though he was walking on a flat land. No matter how hot the flame was, it could not approach the black mist that surrounded his body.
“B-Big Brother D-Duan… I-I feel so… so… s-sleepy…” When Feng Tian Wu saw Duan Ling Tian was within her reach, she stretched out her hand with difficulty. Her voice gradually faded, and her eyes were almost fully closed now.
“Tian Wu,” Duan Ling Tian with his purple hair and blood red eyes had almost lost all his reason. However, his last ounce of remaining consciousness allowed him to reach his hand out to grip Feng Tian Wu’s hand.
In an instance, a wave of terrifying scorching energy passed from Feng Tian Wu’s hand into the devilified Duan Ling Tian’s body. It shook him down to his core as a cold shiver ran up his spine.
At the same time, the layer of red in the devilified Duan Ling Tian’s eyes gradually began to recede.
Apart from that, even his purple hair began to slowly turn back to black.
Before Duan Ling Tian’s completely lost his consciousness, he noticed the black energy from his body entering Feng Tian Wu’s body when her scorching energy entered his body. It was like a mutual exchange between the both of them.
Duan Ling Tian finally became unconscious in the next moment.
He did not know what happened next.
Before he lost his consciousness, he only had time to draw out a wave of gentle energy to support his and Feng Tian Wu’s body as they descended to prevent them from falling.
At their current height, they would fall to their death if they passed out now.
Duan Ling Tian did not know how long he was unconscious.
By the time he regained his consciousness, he discovered himself lying in a luxurious room on a soft bed. He was extremely unwilling to leave the bed.
“Boss, you’re finally awake!” Duan Ling Tian heard a familiar voice just as he sat up. He turned around to look at the source of the voice.
In just one glance, he saw a familiar figure — a big fatty.
His childhood playmate who later formed a brotherhood with him.
“Fatty, what’s this place?” Duan Ling Tian asked curiously.
“Boss, this is the Imperial Palace of the Crimson Sky Kingdom,” Li Xuan replied.
A pang of realization hit Duan Ling Tian immediately.
Indeed. How could it possibly be so luxurious if it was not the Imperial Palace?
Li Xuan suddenly flashed a thumbs-up at Duan Ling Tian as he fawned over him. “Boss, you’re so amazing. You actually killed that old man who was the leader!”
He flashed a dazzling smile as he reached the end of his sentence.
In the beginning, he was caught by one of the three people next to that old man. Due to this reason, he had been holding a grudge ever since then.
Now that the old man was dead, he was truly happy and excited.
“My Spiritual Energy seems to have stagnated… Could it be that it’s going to synchronize with my cultivation base? Is this the consequences of using the Devilseal Tablet?” Duan Ling Tian soon noticed a problem after he performed a check on himself.
During his first devilification by the Devilseal tablet, his Spiritual Energy that was two level higher than his cultivation base was suppressed and became only a level higher than his cultivation base.
Presently, he could clearly feel his Spiritual Energy that was a level higher than his cultivation base seemed to have stagnated.
In the future, the level of his Spiritual Energy might not rise to a higher level than his cultivation base even when his cultivation base had risen. It would probably be at the same level instead.
Currently, his cultivation base was at the Sixth Level Void Transformation Stage while his Spiritual Energy was at the Seventh Level Void Transformation Stage.
By the time his cultivation base made a breakthrough to the Seventh Level Void Transformation Stage, there was a high possibility that his Spiritual Energy would not make any progress.
“It’s a good thing that my Soul Skill, Thousand Illusions, is already long gone. Otherwise, it would be greatly affected.” Duan Ling Tian was somewhat relieved.
If he was still using the Soul Skill, Thousand Illusions, the skill would be useless by the time his Spiritual Energy and his cultivation base synchronized.
Duan Ling Tian finally regained his sense. He looked at Li Xuan and asked anxiously, “Where’s Tian Wu?”
He remembered before he lost consciousness, Tian Wu’s situation was extremely dire. The Fire Spirit Body’s energy had almost broken out of her body!
Even a celestial being would find it hard to save Tian Wu at that time.
Duan Ling Tian’s heart sank when he thought about this.
“Don’t tell me something really happened to Tian Wu?” Duan Ling Tian was anxious.
“Boss, don’t worry. Sister-in-law is fine. Grandmother Meng is taking care of her.” Li Xuan smiled.
Duan Ling Tian did not intend to scold him this time even though he addressed Feng Tian Wu as ‘sister-in-law’.
After the incident, his heart had already accepted her as his, and he did not want to reject her anymore.
“Bring me to her,” Duan Ling Tian said to Li Xuan with anxiety between his brows.
Feng Tian Wu was in a dire situation this time because of him. He felt both touched and guilty.
With Li Xuan’s guidance, Duan Ling Tian went to the place where Feng Tian Wu was recuperating.
On the way, Duan Ling Tian learned from Li Xuan he had been bedridden for a whole month. “What? I’ve been sleeping for one month?!”
“Yes.” Li Xuan nodded.
Duan Ling Tian took a deep breath before he thought to himself, ‘The after-effect of the Devilseal Tablet is not something to trifle with! It’s a good thing I passed out in the Imperial Palace… If I had I gone to somewhere else like the last time, I would’ve died!”
After all, not everybody was as kind as Ye Xuan.
Finally, Duan Ling Tian met with Feng Tian Wu again. She was still in a coma and showed no signs of waking up.
“Grandmother Meng, my sister-in-law is still not awake?” Li Xuan asked as he looked at Meng Ping.
“No.” Meng Ping shook her head.
Duan Ling Tian stood beside Feng Tian Wu who was still in a coma as he extended his Spiritual Energy to thoroughly investigate the situation in her body.
“Huh? The Fire Spirit Body’s energy in Tian Wu’s body has dissolved? Moreover, Tian Wu’s cultivation base… has progressed so much?! What’s going on?” Duan Ling Tian was puzzled.
However, it was a good thing all in all.
“Huh?” However, Duan Ling Tian was shocked when his Spiritual Energy touched the depth of Feng Tian Wu’s mind. “What happened? How did Tian Wu’s soul suffer such a great injury?”
