Chapter 1319: Immortality
Translator: EndlessFantasy Translation Editor: EndlessFantasy Translation
After the group followed the First Island Master of Hidden Fog Island to the Half Moon Island, they headed straight to the center of the island.
The Heaven and Earth Origin Energy was denser the closer it was to the center of Half Moon Island.
‘It seems like… the Half Moon Island’s supreme-grade Origin Stones’ vein is buried under the center of the island.’ It was not difficult for Duan Ling Tian to figure this out.
Along the way, all they saw was a lush green forest when they flew. The air they breathed was extremely fresh, and it felt like a spring breeze.
“Earth from my past life was industrialized and developed… It was rare to have this kind of environment.” At this moment, Duan ling Tian could not help but think of earth from his past life. Those days on earth felt like a lifetime ago.
‘Unknowingly, it has been more than ten years since I came to this world.” Duan Ling Tian sighed.
‘More than ten years… I don’t know if that guy is dead.’ Duan Ling Tian’s eyes gleamed coldly when he thought of that person who betrayed him.
‘In this world, we can also see the stars when we look at the night sky… This means the land I’m standing on is probably a planet.’ Duan Ling Tian’s thoughts wandered. ‘Both are planets… I don’t know if the Saint Stage powerhouses on Dao Martial Saint Land can leave the planet and travel through space physically.’
When Duan Ling Tian thought of that, he felt very excited.
If that was possible, he might be able to travel to other planets or even back to earth.
Although Duan Ling Tian had nothing he cared for on earth, he felt a lump in his throat whenever he thought about that person who betrayed him. He wanted to tear him into a million pieces!
It would bother him as long as that person was alive.
‘Perhaps, I’ll feel better when that person dies naturally after a hundred years,’ Duan Ling Tian thought to himself.
It was not uncommon for humans on this planet to live for more than two hundred years once they had broken through to the Martial Emperor Stage.
As for going back to earth, Duan Ling Tian was merely toying with that idea.
After all, it was too unrealistic.
‘The Sword Saint, Feng Qing Yang, mentioned something about ascending to Heaven and becoming an immortal. In fact, Xue Nai had mentioned it as well… In my hometown on earth, there were also ancient myths about ascending to Heaven and becoming a God.”
‘According to the ancient myths and legends, a mortal can cultivate immortality and Dharma. In the end, they’ll ascend to Heaven and soar into the Immortal World and become Gods or immortals.’
‘I don’t know if this world’s ascending to Heaven and becoming an immortal is the same as the one in the ancient myths and legends.’ A million confusing thoughts filled Duan Ling Tian’s mind.
Duan Ling Tian could not suppress his curiosity and asked Han Xue Nai, “Xue Nai, you mentioned a Sword Saint powerhouse who opened up the 81 Saint Veins, ascended to Heaven and became an immortal… Do you know what ‘ascending to Heaven and becoming an immortal’ means?”
Han Xue Nai frowned when she heard his words. There was a gleam in her mischievous eyes. She said, “I’m not exactly sure what it means… However, there’s a rumor on the Dao Martial Saint Land since ancient times that ascending to Heaven and becoming an immortal means one is leaving the Dao Martial Saint Land.”
“Leaving the Dao Martial Saint Land?”
Duan Ling Tian frowned. “What does that mean? Did they die? Or did they move on to another world?”
According to the ancient myths and legends on earth, ascending to Heaven and becoming a God meant they had left earth and had soared into the Immortal World to become Gods or immortals.
However, he did not know how things worked in this world.
“I’ve never heard of that before… However, I don’t think they died. After all, a Saint Stage powerhouse’s life is extremely long.”
Han Xue Nai said, “A powerful Saint Stage powerhouse’s life can be endlessly long. They can live as long as heaven and earth!”
Han Xue Nai’s words were like a bolt of lightning, stunning Duan Ling Tian.
Living as long as heaven and earth?
“Isn’t that like immortality in the legends?” At this moment, Duan Ling Tian felt his heartbeat quickened. It was beating so fast, it felt as though his heart was about to leap out of his chest.
That was everyone’s dream!
Back when Duan Ling Tian was still on earth, he had heard that the immortals in the ancient myths and legends could live as long as heaven and earth.
However, that was only a legend.
Previously, Duan Ling Tian thought immortality only existed in legends. However, Xue Nai just told him that powerful Saint Stage powerhouse could live forever!
How could it not shock him?
Duan Ling Tian took a deep breath in an attempt to tamp down his excitement and asked, “Xue Nai, is what you said true? Powerful Saint Stage powerhouses can really have endless lives, living as long as heaven and earth?”
“It’s true.” Han Xue Nai nodded. “It’s not rare on the Dao Martial Saint Land. However, not all Saint Stage powerhouses can live as long as heaven and earth… Those powerhouses who have just broken through to the Saint Stage can only increase their lifespans to 1,000 years old.”
1,000 years old!
Although Duan Ling Tian was still surprised, he could remain calm because he had discovered that immortality existed.
‘Once you break through to the Saint Stage, your lifespan can increase to 1,000 years old? Powerful Saint Stage powerhouses can live forever?’ Duan Ling Tian’s heart was filled with desire when he thought about this. He yearned to break through to the Saint Stage and become a Saint Stage powerhouse one day.
“Boy, if you can break through to the Mortal Shedding Stage, your lifespan will increase to 300 years old… If you make it to the Saint Rudiment Stage, you can live up to 500 years old,” Wang Ba’s voice sounded in a timely manner.
Duan Ling Tian’s eyes lit up after he heard Wang Ba’s words.
Even if one broke through to the Martial Emperor Stage and became a Martial Emperor powerhouse, their lifespan would only be increased to almost 200 years old.
However, the Mortal Shedding Stage could grant a lifespan of 300 years old?
In addition to the Saint Veins, Duan Ling Tian currently also yearned for longevity. He desperately wanted to improve his cultivation base and break through to the Mortal Shedding Stage!
“Haha… Tang Zhen, it’s been a while.” Hearty laughter sounded suddenly and shocked Duan Ling Tian.
Duan Ling Tian looked up and discovered that they had arrived at the center of Half Moon Island. They were hovering in mid-air, above a few buildings.
An old man stood before them. He was followed by another two old men and a middle-aged man.
The old man and the three people behind him wore the same outfit.
There was an embroidered half-moon on their chests. The shape was similar to Half Moon Island. Their outfits were obviously a uniform of Half Moon Island.
However, unlike the blue half-moon on the old man’s chest, the other three people had green half-moons.
‘It seems like the color of the moon represents their status on Half Moon Island.” Duan Ling Tian managed to figure it out with just a glance.
At the same time, some whispering entered Duan Ling Tian’s ears.”It’s the Vice Island Master and elders of Half Moon Island.”
“How do you know their identities?”
“Just look at the embroidery on their chests. On Half Moon Island, the class is clearly divided by the colors of a rainbow; Red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo, and violet… Red is a mark for the lowest status. It’s only for ordinary outer island disciples. On the other hand, violet is a mark of the highest status. It represents the Island Masters of Half Moon Island.”
“I’ve also heard about that… Below the violet moon, the indigo moon belongs exclusively to the three Vice Island Masters of Half Moon Island. After the indigo moon, the blue moon represents the inner island elders of Half Moon Island.”
Most of the people who were whispering were the core disciples of Hidden Fog Island.
As one of the Overseas Saint Islands, they had heard some things about Half Moon Island.
“Xiao Kun, you haven’t died yet.” Faced with the greetings from the Vice Island Master of Half Moon Island, the First Island Master of Hidden Fog, Master Tang Zhen, smiled. However, the words that came out of his mouth were not polite.
Most of the people from Hidden Fog Island and Duan Ling Tian were shocked when they heard his words.
In comparison, the three elders of Half Moon Island were a lot calmer. They did not seem surprised.
Meanwhile, the Vice Island Master of Half Moon Island, Xiao Kun, smiled at Tang Zhen. “How can I die when you’re still alive?”
“Don’t you forget that you’re older than me by a few years,” Xiao Kun said triumphantly.
The group from Hidden Fog Island including Duan Ling Tian finally had an inkling of what was happening.
The First Island Master of Hidden Fog Island must be old friends with the Vice Island Master of Half Moon Island. In fact, they must be quite close. Otherwise, they would not be so casual with each other.
“You old fart, you have nothing else to say apart from this?” Tang Zhen retorted snappily after he snorted.
He always lost to Xiao Kun because of that.
“Haha… Saying this is good enough.” After smirking and laughing, Xiao Kun looked at Duan Ling Tian and the others. “All of you must be tired from your journey with that old fart… I’ll bring you to a place to rest.”
After that, he and the three elders of Half Moon Island turned around and led the way, descending to the ground.
However, the Hidden Fog Island’s disciples did not follow them. Even Duan ling Tian and the others from Cloud Continent did not follow them. They only looked at Tang Zhen.
They did not dare to follow them because they were afraid of the First Island Master of Hidden Fog Island’s strength.
If he was dissatisfied, he could kill them in just a second.
Naturally, there were some who were not afraid of Tang Zhen.
Han Xue Nai did not follow them because she saw Duan Ling Tian did not move. It was not because she was afraid of Tang Zhen.
Duan Ling Tian and the others only made a move when Tang Zhen moved.
Under the Vice Island Master of Half Moon Island, Xiao Kun’s arrangement, Duan Ling Tian and the others stayed in a building in the center of Half Moon Island. It was also the main building on Half Moon Island.
This was where everyone under the Island Master of Half Moon Island, Di Yong, stayed. This included the Vice Island Masters of Half Moon Island, inner island elders, core disciples, and inner island disciples.
When they were in a spacious hall, Han Xue Nai looked at Xiao Kun who was flying away and muttered, “This Vice Island Master of Half Moon Island is a Dao Cultivator.”
“Dao Cultivator?” Duan Ling Tian’s eyes lit up when he heard that. He immediately followed Han Xue Nai’s line of sight and looked over.
However, he could not find any difference between Xiao Kun and martial cultivators no matter how he looked at him.
