It could be imagined that if Feng Wu Dao knew of Duan Ling Tian’s current thoughts, he would surely swing out his palm and slap Duan Ling Tian flying.
However, Feng Tian Wu awakening her interest to Duan Ling Tian was true.
Feng Tian Wu was one who was favored by the heavens.
As the possessor of a Fire Spirit Body, her natural talent was unquestionable since a young age, and no one amongst her peers could surpass her.
This also developed the proudness and aloofness in her heart.
However, all this proudness and aloofness completely crumbled after Duan Ling Tian appeared and defeated her.
Coupled with the fact that she firmly believed Duan Ling Tian was the man in her destiny, Duan Ling Tian’s status in her eyes was greatly diffident.
This was also the reason why Duan Ling Tian felt that the current Feng Tian Wu was completely like a different person compared to before.
Feng Tian Wu’s entire heart was already on him now.
If she wasn’t affectionate to him, then who would she be affectionate to?
The matters of the heart had always been marvelous and difficult to be spoken of clearly.
“City Governor!” Duan Ling Tian looked at Feng Wu Dao and said, “There’s one more thing that I think I should tell you and Tian Wu… I already have two fiancées.”
“What!?” Feng Wu Dao’s face went grim and said angrily, “Kid, not only do you have a fiancée, but you have two? Tell me where they are, I’ll go deal with them right away… How can the daughter of I, Feng Wu Dao, share the same husband with other women!?”
Feng Wu Dao’s words caused Duan Ling Tian’s face to sink. “City Governor Feng, there’s some things that you can’t speak carelessly about.”
“Hmph!” Feng Wu Dao snorted angrily and he still wanted to continue, but was interrupted by Feng Tian Wu. “Father, if you still continue being like this, then I won’t acknowledge you anymore in the future!”
Feng Tian Wu panted with rage and it caused the veil on her face to sway with her breathing.
Feng Wu Dao seemed to become dispirited when he heard Feng Tian Wu. “Fine, Father won’t speak of it.”
He wasn’t afraid of anything, but was most afraid of this precious daughter of his.
“Kid, my daughter must be the principal wife when she marries you… As for the other two girls by your side, I’ll take a step back and allow them to be your concubines.” Feng Wu Dao’s voice transmission entered into Duan Ling Tian’s ears.
Duan Ling Tian frowned and replied via voice transmission. “City Governor Feng, I’m sorry… My women aren’t differentiated by principal and concubine. Moreover, I never agreed to marry Tian Wu.”
“Kid, what’s bad about my daughter?” Feng Wu Dao’s voice transmission contained slight rage mixed within, yet he didn’t dare flare up.
After all, Feng Tian Wu was beside him.
“Tian Wu is very good… But, I don’t have that type of feeling towards her right now. Besides that, I’ll try my best to help her… If I’m really a possessor of the Water Spirit Body or Ice Spirit Body, I can marry Tian Wu and become one with her, and even slowly develop feelings with her.” Duan Ling Tian replied via voice transmission.
Feng Tian Wu was undoubtedly one of the most outstanding women he’d met in this lifetime.
In terms of appearance, she wasn’t inferior to Ke Er and Li Fei.
In terms of bearing, perhaps it was because of her extraordinary birth, it even surpassed Ke Er and Li Fei.
“Haha…” Duan Ling Tian’s voice transmission had only just entered Feng Wu Dao’s ears when Feng Wu Dao started laughing, and it caused both Duan Ling Tian and Feng Tian Wu to be muddled.
After a long time, Feng Wu Dao stopped laughing and looked at Feng Tian Wu. “Wu, Father will listen to you and stop forcing him… Children can take care of themselves and have their own fortune, Father won’t concern myself with what extent of a relationship you can achieve with him in the future. But Father still wants to remind you that sometimes, you have to rely on yourself to pursue your own happiness. Once you miss it, you might regret it your whole life.”
“I know, Father.” Feng Tian Wu’s beautiful face flushed from what Feng Wu Dao said.
Duan Ling Tian heaved a sigh of relief. “Looks like what I said moved Feng Wu Dao and made him give up any thoughts of forcing me to marry Tian Wu.”
“Duan Ling Tian.” Feng Wu Dao looked at Duan Ling Tian and said indifferently, “Since you’re not considered to be Wu’s fiancé now, then I naturally can’t give you her dowry, the Soul Transformation Fruit. When you really do become my son-in-law, then I’ll give the Soul Transformation Fruit to you as Wu’s dowry.”
Duan Ling Tian nodded.
Even though the Spirit Transformation Fruit was valuable and its assistance to him was even extremely great, he wouldn’t falsely agree to the marriage agreement with Feng Tian Wu just for the sake of the Soul Transformation Fruit.
In this way, it would be too unfair to Feng Tian Wu.
“Looks like I’ve really changed greatly… I wonder if it’s good or bad.” Duan Ling Tian sighed to himself.
If it was him during his previous life, he would absolutely have no resistance against a beauty of Feng Tian Wu’s level.
Whereas during this current lifetime, he had an extra sense of responsibility.
As far as he was concerned, if he were to blindly agree to a marriage with Feng Tian Wu before he had any feelings for her, then not only would it be unfair to Feng Tian Wu, it would similarly be unfair to Ke Er and Li Fei.
“Although I can’t give you the Soul Transformation Fruit… I know of a place that ought to be able to assist you in breaking through the shackles of your Spiritual Force and allow your Spiritual Force to step into the Void Prying Stage!” Feng Wu Dao continued.
Duan Ling Tian’s face went grim. “City Governor, the formidable Spiritual Force from that day belongs to you?”
Duan Ling Tian recalled that when he wanted to use his Spiritual Force to investigate Feng Tian Wu outside the Groom Search Competition’s arena that day, there was a formidable Spiritual Force that suppressed his Spiritual Force back.
Fortunately, that formidable Spiritual Force bore no ill will and showed mercy, otherwise, his soul would surely be heavily injured!
After all, Spiritual Force stemmed from the soul.
Moreover, an injury of the soul and an injury of the body were two entirely different concepts.
The latter’s healing could be assisted with ordinary injury healing pills.
The formed instead required special injury healing pills that were of grade three or above in order to be able to assist with the healing of the soul.
Now, when he heard Feng Wu Dao speak of the level of his soul, he’d thought the owner of that formidable Spiritual Force was Feng Wu Dao at the first possible moment.
“It wasn’t mine.” Feng Wu Dao shook his head with a smile. “It was Elder Kong. As for the level of your Spiritual Force, it was Elder Kong who told me.”
Duan Ling Tian was stunned.
“Big Brother Duan, it’s the Grandpa Kong that I told you about… Grandpa Kong is extremely formidable,” Feng Tian Wu said with a light smile.
Duan Ling Tian nodded and he didn’t doubt what Feng Tian Wu Said.
That day, that formidable Spiritual Force had suppressed his Spiritual Force to the point it didn’t have any strength to resist…
Based on Duan Ling Tian’s preliminary estimations, the owner of that Spiritual Force, or in other words Elder Kong, was an existence that had at least stepped into the Void Initiation Stage or even stronger than that!
“City Governor, you said earlier that there’s a place that can assist my Spiritual Force to break through the last shackles of my soul and break through to the Void Prying Stage?” In next to no time, Duan Ling Tian recovered from his shock and recalled what Feng Wu Dao said earlier, and he had an expression of burning desire.
Presently, he was unable to obtain the Soul Transformation Fruit, so he naturally wouldn’t miss the opportunity when he heard of another way to allow his Spiritual Force to break through.
“Father, are you talking about the Soulcleanse Pool?” Feng Wu Dao hadn’t spoken yet when Feng Tian Wu had already asked.
“Exactly… The day the Soulcleanse Pool opens is in another three months.” Feng Wu Dao nodded.
“Soulcleanse pool?” Duan Ling Tian was stunned.
“I’ll let Wu tell you the specifics later… According to Elder Kong, you’re an Inscription Master like him. During the three months before the Soulcleanse Pool opens, go over to Elder Kong’s place when you’re free and let Elder Kong, who’s a great Inscription Master, guide you in your art of inscriptions. It’s sufficient for you to enjoy boundless benefits.” After Feng Wu Dao finished speaking in a single breath, he waved his hand. “Both of you can leave.”
Duan Ling Tian and Feng Tian Wu left shoulder to shoulder, and on the way, Duan Ling Tian asked curiously. “Tian Wu, what’s that Soulcleanse Pool?”
“The Soulcleanse Pool is a marvelous pool at the southern territory of Darkstone Empire… That place is enveloped by an Inscription Formation made from the combination of some inscriptions, and it opens every three years. Every time it opens, the Soulcleanse pool would have accumulated a certain amount of spirit energy.” Feng Tian Wu slowly introduced. “The spirit energy of the Soulcleanse Pool is able to improve the comprehension ability of a martial artist to a certain extent… According to what Grandpa Kong said, it’s none other than tempering the soul.”
“Tempering the soul?” Duan Ling Tian’s pupils constricted and he revealed a surprised expression.
“Yes, tempering the soul.” Feng Tian Wu nodded and continued. “However, the improvement of the soul provided by the Soulcleanse Pool is extremely limited… Even to the extent that if someone who has already gone in were to go in again, the effect would reduce progressively to almost not having any effect at all.”
“This is something similar to consuming spirit fruits, the medicinal strength would greatly reduce when consuming the same spirit fruit.” Duan Ling Tian thought in his heart then asked at the same time. “Tian Wu, once the so called spirit energy within the Soulcleanse Pool is absorbed, it required a certain amount of time to accumulate and recover?”
“Yes.” Feng Tian Wu nodded.
“Then… Have you gone in before?” Duan Ling Tian asked.
“I entered the Soulcleanse Pool once three years ago, Grandpa Kong said my soul strengthened slightly… Grandpa Kong said that the Soulcleanse Pool is only able to improve the soul of martial artists below the Void Prying Stage, and martial artist above the Void Prying Stage would only be wasting time by going in.” Feng Tian Wu continued.
Duan Ling Tian nodded, he possessed a certain level of understanding towards the thing called a Soulcleanse Pool.
“According to the memories of Rebirth Martial Emperor… He once encountered a similar place during his second lifetime. But, that place wasn’t enveloped by a man-made Inscription Formation and was formed by nature. Later on, he’d dug all the way to the depths of the pool and actually found a spirit fruit that was able to strengthen the soul!
“Whereas the spirit energy contained within the water in the pool was actually the energy emitted from the spirit fruit, and it was similar to the wine fragrance of the Monkey King Wine!” Duan Ling Tian’s mood surged.
“Looks like that Soulcleanse Pool might have some secrets,” Duan Ling Tian thought to himself.
“Perhaps, a spirit fruit that can strengthen the soul is also contained in the depth of that Soulcleanse Pool… Just the spirit energy emitted by it is sufficient to assist others in improve the soul, then once it’s consumed, its medicinal effect would surely be even more shocking!” Duan Ling Tian’s mood surged.
According to the memories of the Rebirth Martial Emperor, the spirit fruit that the Rebirth Martial Emperor obtained during his second lifetime was far more valuable than the Soul Transformation Fruit.
“If a spirit fruit like that is really concealed within the Soulcleanse Pool… Then I’ll make a killing!” When he thought up to here, Duan Ling Tian felt a wave of excitement.
