Translator: KurazyTolanzuraytor Editor: Jay
Dawn, as the myriad of beings in the land awoke from their slumber.
“Hu!” Duan Ling Tian who sat cross-legged on the bed and cultivated the entire night let out a breath of air as he opened his eyes.
Crack! Crackle! Crack!
Duan Ling Tian lightly stretched his arms, and a wave of light sounds of bones rubbing together sounded out.
“Only a little bit more and I can break through to the fifth level of the Nascent Soul Stage!” Duan Ling Tian’s face revealed a satisfied smile as he sensed his current cultivation.
Duan Ling Tian got off the bed and brought along Little Gold as he left the room.
After he ate the breakfast prepared by the member of the Ancient River Trading Company, Duan Ling Tian went to see Feng Ping and the others to bid his farewells.
With Zhao Yu and Feng Ping in the lead, everyone from the Seven Star Sword Sect were present, and they sent Duan Ling Tian off from the Ancient River Trading Company with their eyes…
They only came back to their senses after Duan Ling Tian’s figure vanished before their eyes.
“Elder Feng Ping, President Lan gave me some tea half a month ago, come have some at my place?” Zhao Yu looked at Feng Ping and invited.
Feng Ping’s gaze lit up and he jumped at the offer. “Tea given by President Lan is surely good tea… Then I’ll do as you ask.” Along with the Zhao Yu and Feng Ping leaving the large courtyard, Zhao Lei and the other two Seven Star Sword Sect inner court disciples left as well.
No one noticed that at this moment, a wisp of an evil smile that was difficult to notice faintly appeared on the corners of Zhao Lei’s mouth.
On the other side, Duan Ling Tian’s Spiritual Force became vigilant once he turned into the small alley.
At the first possible moment, Duan Ling Tian’s Spiritual Force didn’t notice any inklings, and he couldn’t help but say to himself, “Hmm? Could it be that I overthought things?”
But, when he passed through the small alley, he was able to notice a gaze that was locked tightly on him…
Needless to say, this person was extremely cautious and even an ordinary Void Prying Stage martial artist might not be able to notice him.
Unfortunately, Duan Ling Tian’s previous life profession of a weapon’s specialist allowed him to grasp the highest level of counter tracking abilities, and he’d noticed this person that was concealed in the shadows at the first possible moment.
Not only that, Duan Ling Tian was even able to discover the person’s cultivation through his acute Spiritual Force.
“First level Void Prying Stage? That Zhao Yu really looks highly upon me!” Duan Ling Tian rubbed his nose and an evil smile appeared on his face as he shook his sleeve and sent a voice transmission. “Little Gold, drag out that unfortunate fellow for me later… Also, don’t kill him, I want to ask him a few questions.”
“Okay, okay!” The little gold mouse’s voice transmission contained jubilance and excitement.
Duan Ling Tian wasn’t surprised by this.
Little Gold had never fought a battle throughout these two months, and perhaps she was already pent up…
Now, her pent up flame finally had a place to be vented…
Subsequently, Duan Ling Tian circumnavigated into a remote small alley within the Ancient City of Everlast.
Relying on his acute Spiritual Force, Duan Ling Tian was able to sense that the first level Void Prying Stage martial artist that was following him was still concealed at the side, as if intending to wait for an opportunity to attack him.
“Little Gold, drag him out!” Duan Ling Tian sent a voice transmission to tell the little gold mouse of the exact location of the first level Void Prying Stage martial artist, then directly asked her to get him.
“Squeak squeak~” The little gold mouse cried out excitedly, then she transformed into a gold light that flashed out from Duan Ling Tian’s sleeve.
After a short moment, Duan Ling Tian heard a wave of thunderclaps sound out behind him.
It was precisely the little gold mouse utilizing her Half-step Advanced Lightning Force.
In the next moment.
“Ah!” A heavy sound of something dropping onto the floor sounded out while accompanied by a miserable shrill cry.
Duan Ling Tian turned around and saw a middle aged man lying on the ground in an extremely sorry state. The little gold mouse stood in the air beside him while holding the pocket-sized spirit sword in her hand.
“Don’t kill me, don’t kill me!” Although the little gold mouse was only a tiny little thing, in the eyes of the middle aged man, she was like a savage beast that caused him to have a panicked expression and endlessly beg for mercy.
“Who are you? Why did Zhao Yu send you to follow me?” Duan Ling Tian glanced indifferently at the middle aged man as he asked.
But the middle aged man paid no attention to Duan Ling Tian and instead was still staring at the little gold mouse with an uneasy and terrified expression.
Duan Ling Tian frowned when he was disregarded by the middle aged man and he said to the little gold mouse, “Little Gold, if he doesn’t answer my question in the time of three breaths, then you can give him a slash however you like.”
“Squeak squeak~” The little gold mouse hurriedly nodded when she heard Duan Ling Tian. Her pair of jade green eyes flickered with cold light and the pocket-sized spirit sword in her hand flickered with a ghastly sheen of Origin Energy.
“You… You two…” The middle aged man’s face went deathly pale, as he’d never imagined that the Seven Star Sword Sect inner court disciple he was following was actually together with this strange mouse demon beast.
“Zhao Yu, you’ve really put me in deep s**t!” The middle aged man gnashed his teeth as his heart suddenly went cold. “If I knew earlier that this kid had a demon beast protecting him… Then I wouldn’t have accepted this errand even if that Zhao Yu gave me even more benefits.”
“You still have the time of one breath.” Duan Ling Tian’s calm voice sounded as if he was speaking of something that was of no importance.
The middle aged man never expected that the revolving of his thoughts had actually wasted the time of two breaths…
Now, when Duan Ling Tian’s words entered his ears, it was like the sound of death entering his ears and it caused his face to go deathly pale.
When he saw Origin Energy bloom on the spirit sword in the hand of the mouse demon beast that suppressed him, the middle aged man hurriedly looked at Duan Ling Tian and said in panic, “I’ll tell you, I’ll tell you!”
“Squeak squeak~” The little gold mouse was slightly dejected, then she bared her fangs and brandished her claws at the middle aged man as if she was saying, “Can you not be such a pu**y? I haven’t even done anything.”
Duan Ling Tian looked at the middle aged main as he said indifferently, “Go on.”
“Yes, yes.” The middle aged man nodded in panic. “It was Zhao Yu who promised me many benefits to kill you…”
“Kill me?” Duan Ling Tian’s face sank as his gaze emitted cold lights.
“Yes.” The middle aged man continued. “He asked me to deal with you cleanly, then seize your Spatial Ring… He said he doesn’t want anything else but a cultivation method in your possession.”
Duan Ling Tian frowned.
At the beginning, he only thought that Zhao Yu was taking revenge for his Zhao Lei, and that’s why Zhao Yu bribed a first level Void Prying Stage martial artist to kill him.
But now it would seem like the matter wasn’t as simple as he’d imagined.
“What cultivation method?” Duan Ling Tian asked.
The middle aged man didn’t dare hesitate and said hastily, “It was some Rebirth Muscle Meridian Scroll, no, it was the Muscle Meridian Rebirth Scroll…”
“Muscle Meridian Rebirth Scroll?!” Duan Ling Tian’s pupils constricted and he was greatly shocked in his heart.
“How could Zhao Yu possibly know of the Muscle Meridian Rebirth Scroll? Logically speaking, besides myself, only the Megrez Peak outer court elder, Zhao Lin, knows of this fictitious cultivation method that I fabricated… Right, Zhao Yu, Zhao Lin… They’re both surnamed Zhao! Could it be that there’s some relationship between them?” Duan Ling Tian’s thoughts revolved and his fierce gaze descended onto the middle aged man as he asked in a low voice. “Since Zhao Yu looked for you to help him do this, I presume the both of you can be considered to be acquainted… Do you know of that Zhao Yu’s background in the Seven Star Sword Sect?”
“I seem to have heard him mention it before, his grandfather is the Guardian Elder of the Seven Star Sword Sect.” The middle aged man shivered when he noticed the frightful cold light that flickered on the spirit sword in the little gold mouse’s hand, and he spoke of everything he knew.
“As expected!” Duan Ling Tian understood, he completely understood.
So it turned out that this Zhao Yu and Zhao Lin were cousins…
“Perhaps, when Zhao Yu sent people to ask about me in the Seven Star Sword Sect, it was precisely Zhao Lin who he’d asked the person to look for… After that, Zhao Lin knew that I was at the Ancient City of Everlast, so he told Zhao Yu that I possessed the Muscle Meridian Rebirth Scroll! Zhao Yu was similarly greedy of the fictitious Muscle Meridian Rebirth Scroll that I fabricated.” All this wasn’t difficult for Duan Ling Tian to guess.
“Zhao Lin, Zhao Yu… Since the two of you want the Muscle Meridian Rebirth Scroll so much, then I’ll give it to the two of you!” Duan Ling Tian seemed as if he’d recalled something and the corners of his mouth curled into an evil smile.
This evil smile entered into the eyes of the middle aged man and caused his face to go deathly pale as he said in panic, “Young Master, I’ll told you of everything I know… Don’t kill me, don’t kill me!”
“Don’t worry, I won’t kill you. So long as you help me do one thing, I’ll write off the score between us!” Duan Ling Tian said indifferently.
“Thank you, Young Master. Thank you, Young Master.” The middle aged man heaved a sigh of relief and hurriedly nodded.
“Find a secluded place nearby… I need to do something.” Duan Ling Tian calmly swept the middle aged man with his gaze then looked at the little gold mouse. “Little Gold, follow by his side… If he dares make any rash actions, kill him!”
“Squeak squeak~” The little gold mouse hurriedly nodded, then transformed into a gold light that descended onto the middle aged man’s shoulder.
The middle aged man’s body went stiff. “I don’t dare, I don’t dare.”
In next to no time, the middle aged man found a secluded inn for Duan Ling Tian.
Duan Ling Tian sat before the table in the room, then withdrew an ancient and simple booklet that was empty and a brush, then started wielding his brush energetically.
The middle aged man stood nearby, not moving an inch.
The little gold mouse lay on his shoulder as she looked at Duan Ling Tian who was wielding his brush energetically with interest.
Presently, Duan Ling Tian was making a copy of a cultivation method.
The starting part of it was from a cultivation method that could be considered to be not bad that Duan Ling Tian had casually found from the memories of the Rebirth Martial Emperor, then he’d copied the start.
The back was instead something Duan Ling Tian fabricated casually.
Then, he added eye piercing large words in the empty space in the middle…
One must first castrate one’s self if there is desire to cultivate the second half;
Without castration, it’s difficult to succeed in the divine cultivation method;
Once castrated, rebirth shall be achieved!
In the end, Duan Ling Tian wrote four exquisite large words at the cover of the booklet:
Muscle Meridian Rebirth Scroll.
“The start of the cultivation method can be considered to be ingenious, and is sufficient to attract anyone… But, without the second half, the essence of the cultivation method can’t be comprehended in the end. I really want to see their expression when they disperse their cultivations, then cultivate this cultivation method and become captivated by it, only to see those words when they have cultivated it to the middle.” A wisp of an evil smile appeared on Duan Ling Tian’s face.
He believed that at that time, the expressions of the Zhao Clan members were sure to be extremely brilliant.
The ink Duan Ling Tian used to write this Muscle Meridian Rebirth Scroll was first rate ancient ink and coupled with the ancient and simple little booklet, it was difficult to distinguish its authenticity.
“So long as they see the start, they will surely be captivated by it.” This was something that Duan Ling Tian was extremely confident of.
