Chapter 286: The Little Pythons Are Missing!
Translator: KurazyTolanzuraytor Editor: Jay
Duan Ling Tian stood in the life and death arena and his restless mood slowly calmed down.
His rage that had boiled to the utmost limit completely calmed down when Huo Xin and Yuan Wu were killed by him.
His headful of long hair that fluttered without the wind slowly dropped down, his crimson red eyes slowly recovered to their normal state, and the Seven Star Sword Sect outer court disciple’s attire that fluttered on his body calmed as well.
Duan Ling Tian’s gaze was calm as he glanced at the two corpses on the floor, as if he’d done something that was of no great importance.
Duan Ling Tian put away Huo Xin and Yuan Wu’s grade seven spirit swords and Spatial Rings, he frowned when he felt the gazes that locked onto him from the surroundings of the life and death arena, and then he strode off, intending to leave.
“Duan Ling Tian!” Right at this moment, Duan Ling Tian’s eardrums trembled, and he clearly heard a voice.
Condensing Origin Energy into sound!
An ability that only a martial artist at the seventh level of the Origin Core Stage or above could master.
When the other person’s voice was transmitted by this method, only he would be able to hear it.
Duan Ling Tian didn’t turn around, and continued to walk forward, as he was able to discern that this was Zhao Lin’s voice…
Duan Ling Tian didn’t have any good impression towards Zhao Lin and directly ignored him.
In next to no time, Zhao Lin’s Origin Energy that was condensed into sound once again entered into Duan Ling Tian’s ears. “Duan Ling Tian, share the cultivation method you’re cultivating with me… I can use other things to exchange with you.”
Duan Ling Tian’s body slightly stopped when he heard what Zhao Lin said, and a wisp of disdain appeared on the corners of his mouth.
Zhao Lin didn’t have any good intentions, as expected.
Actually wanting the cultivation method he cultivated in!
Of course, he also knew that the cultivation method Zhao Lin wanted to obtain was surely the cultivation method he mentioned when bluffing Zhao Lin, the Muscle Meridian Rebirth Scroll…
Actually, he didn’t possess such a cultivation method at all.
It was only something he casually made up when bluffing Zhao Lin.
Duan Ling Tian’s gaze focused as he looked into the distance, and with a glance he noticed the outer court elder Zhao Lin who stood behind the crowd and was staring at him with a burning gaze.
The corners of Duan Ling Tian’s mouth curled into a cold smile as he casually swept Zhao Lin with his gaze, then walked swiftly off the life and death arena.
The Megrez Peak disciples would consciously move to open up a path wherever Duan Ling Tian went.
“Duan Ling Tian, you’re really formidable!”
“Yeah, how the heck do you cultivate? You look like you’re around 20, but your strength is so strong already.”
“Duan Ling Tian, how about we be friends?”
The crowd of Megrez Peak disciples were incomparably zealous wherever Duan Ling Tian passed.
Duan Ling Tian’s gaze was as calm as if it wouldn’t change even if Mount Tai collapsed, and he directly walked in large strides to leave the vast platform that the life and death arena was located on.
“Duan Ling Tian!” Zhao Lin’s face sank. The mocking gaze that Duan Ling Tian swept him with earlier was undoubtedly refusing him.
Zhao Lin slightly clenched his fists, and his eyes emitted an awe-inspiring coldness. “Duan Ling Tian, I always get what I want!”
Along with Duan Ling Tian’s departure, the crowd of Megrez Peak disciples dispersed as well.
But at the same time that they left, they didn’t stop the discussions about Duan Ling Tian, as the strength that Duan Ling Tian revealed had completely shocked them.
A fourth level Origin Core Stage martial artist at around the age of 20, relied on a grade eight spirit sword to kill two fourth level Origin Core Stage outer court disciples that possessed grade seven spirit swords…
And the latter even joined forces.
Such an achievement in battle could be called shocking!
After Duan Ling Tian left the life and death arena, he wound around the windy mountain paths for a while before returning to the mountain peak.
He was worried that Zhao Lin would follow him.
Even though Zhao Lin was an outer court elder of Megrez Peak, Duan Ling Tian was able to discern that Zhao Lin was a person that would use every means possible to obtain his goal.
Now, Zhao Lin had targeted the sheer fictitious Muscle Meridian Rebirth Scroll in his possession, and would surely not let the matter go.
So, he must be careful and absolutely must not allow Zhao Lin to obtain an opportunity.
Duan Ling Tian went along the tilted tree to once again return to the stalactite cave.
“Where’s Little Black and Little White?” Duan Ling Tian had only just entered the stalactite cave when he noticed the two little pythons had disappeared, his face instantly went grim and his heart burned with anxiety.
“Even though Little Black and Little White like to play, but usually, they have never left arbitrarily… Could it be that something happened?” Duan Ling Tian realized that it was no use of him to be anxious, and he must calm down, as only then would he be able to make the most accurate judgment.
“Could it be that someone came here?” Duan Ling Tian’s heart couldn’t help but jerk.
In next to no time, he started searching along the floor of the stalactite cave and the cave passage…
End the end, he confirmed one thing.
Besides him, there wasn’t a second person that had come here, moreover, he’d noticed the traces the two little fellows had left behind on the cave passage…
In other words, the two little fellows left themselves.
“Where did Little Black and Little White go? Could it be that they went to look for me?” Duan Ling Tian noticed that the traces the two little pythons left behind ended at the tilted tree before vanishing.
Duan Ling Tian returned to the peak of the mountain and searched for a while, but in the end he discovered that there weren’t any traces of the little pythons on the mountain peak…
In other words, the two little fellow didn’t come to the mountain peak.
“Could it be that they can grow wings and fly?” Duan Ling Tian frowned, and before long his heart couldn’t help but tremble. “Or maybe… They fell from the tilted tree?”
Duan Ling Tian took a deep breath and his mood that had only just calmed down a while ago once again became restless.
Duan Ling Tian left the Megrez Peak to arrive at Dubhe Peak, then left the Seven Star Sword Sect.
He didn’t go anywhere else, but instead went to the foot of Megrez Peak, as he wanted to confirm if the two little fellows had fallen down…
“Eh.” Under the precipitous Megrez Peak, Duan Ling Tian discovered the traces of the two little pythons after all.
Duan Ling Tian glanced at the precipitous cliff and he noticed that there were traces of the little pythons moving on it.
In other words, the two little fellows had climbed down along the cliff.
“They really have guts.” Duan Ling Tian glanced at Megrez Peak that stood perfectly straight up, the precipitousness of this sword peak caused Duan Ling Tian’s heart to be unable to refrain from having traces of coldness arise within.
“I wonder where Little Black and Little White went.” Duan Ling Tian followed along the tracks on the ground to search all the way, and in the end he discovered that unknowingly, he’d once again arrived at the primeval forest, the dense forest where fierce beasts and demon beasts gathered in great numbers.
The little pythons tracks completely vanished after entering into the primeval forest, causing Duan Ling Tian to have no way of finding them.
“What did those two little fellows come here for?” Duan Ling Tian shook his head, his face full of a bitter smile. “Since I’ve come here, then I’ll look around, and see if I can find them… If I find them, then I must surely teach them a lesson. So disobedient!”
Duan Ling Tian was worried and angry towards the two mischievous little fellows.
Even though the two little pythons were fierce beasts, but they were no different from family to him.
Now that they’d suddenly left, to a certain extent they’d thrown Duan Ling Tian’s life into confusion, and for some time caused Duan Ling Tian to find it difficult to adapt to it.
On the way going deep into the primeval forest, Duan Ling Tian encountered many fierce beasts, and they were practically cleanly swept through by Duan Ling Tian.
Slowly, Duan Ling Tian noticed something.
His Quake Energy wasn’t all-powerful…
His Quake Energy was only able to produce the use it ought to have when faced with opponents that had a difference of strength of within 10 ancient mammoths from him.
Once the strength of his opponent was more than 10 ancient mammoths from him, his Quake Energy would be completely useless.
For example, no matter if it the Elephant Rhino or the Savage Leopard he encountered when he entered the primeval forest earlier, or even the Seven Star Sword Sect outer court disciples, Huo Xin and Yuan Wu, that he’d killing in the life and death arena today…
Even though the strength Duan Ling Tian used when dealing with them was lesser than them, but it didn’t exceed the strength of 10 ancient mammoths!
It was still within the scope of effect of the Quake Energy.
“In other words, relying on this current strength that was comparable to the strength of 71 ancient mammoths, the Quake Energy is able to affect martial artists at the sixth level of the Origin Core Stage… But, it was if no use against seventh level Origin Core Stage martial artists.” Duan Ling Tian thought in his heart, and he quickly came to an understanding.
A sixth level Origin Core Stage martial artist possessed the strength of 80 ancient mammoths, and there was only a difference of the strength of nine ancient mammoths from Duan Ling Tian’s current strength, thus it was within the Quake Energy’s scope of effect.
“However, if a sixth level Origin Core Stage martial artist were to utilize a grade seven spirit weapon, his offensive strength would increase explosively! Even if I use a grade seven spirit weapons…. Solely in terms of offense, I will surely be thrown off by the strength of more than 10 ancient mammoths!” Duan Ling Tian pondered slightly. “Under these circumstances, I’m unable to use the method I used to deal with Huo Xin and Yuan Wu today, on a sixth level Origin Core Stage martial artist…. After all, the amplified strength that my opponent receives from his grade seven spirit sword will be within the spirit sword in his hand, and if I were to use my spirit sword to go head on with my opponent’s spirit sword, the Quake Energy would be unable to be of any use.”
“If I want to defeat my opponent, then I can only think of a way to seize my opponent’s sword, or maybe find a suitable opportunity to force him to fight with me with bare hands!”
A sixth level Origin Core Stage martial artist possessed a strength of 80 ancient mammoths, and once a grade seven spirit sword was utilized, the offensive strength would increase explosively to a strength of more than 100 ancient mammoths…
Whereas Duan Ling Tian only possessed the strength of 71 ancient mammoths, even if he utilised a grade seven spirit sword, his offensive strength would only be close to the strength of 90 ancient mammoths!
In this way, the difference between the two would exceed the strength of 10 ancient mammoths!
And it just happened to exceed the scope of effect of the Quake Energy.
“Truly a headache! Looks like if I really want to battle a sixth level Origin Core Stage martial artist who possesses a grade seven spirit sword, I still have to prepare some auxiliary inscriptions, only then would I be much safer!” Duan Ling Tian thought in his heart.
If he didn’t use an inscription and only a grade seven spirit weapon, under the circumstances that his opponent had a grade seven spirit sword as well, if he wanted to win then he could only launch a surprise attack or lure his opponent to abandon his opponent’s spirit sword.
But, there was a certain amount of danger in doing so.
Once his opponent wasn’t deceived, he would be forced into a passive position, even to the extent he might be defeated or killed.
“Cultivation… I still have to properly increase my cultivation. Along with the increase in my cultivation, the might of the Quake Energy would increase as well. At that time, it would surely not be limited within the strength of 10 ancient mammoths.” Duan Ling Tian took a deep breath, and as he thought up to here, he was even more dedicated towards cultivating.
Duan Ling Tian searched in the primeval forest for a day and night, but didn’t discover the tracks of the two little pythons and could only helplessly leave in the end.
He believed that with the viability of the two little pythons, they ought to not be in any danger within the primeval forest.
