Translator: KurazyTolanzuraytor Editor: Jay
After a short moment, Duan Ling Tian saw a person swiftly flying over from the west.
“Zhao Ming!” Duan Ling Tian’s face sank when he saw this person that arrived.
He understood that this place turned out to be the meeting point of Zhao Ming and Tang Huo.
After a short moment, Zhao Ming arrived by Tang Huo’s side, and his hateful eyes stared fixedly at Duan Ling Tian as he spoke coldly, “Duan Ling Tian, don’t play tricks! Otherwise, I’ll kill you at the first possible moment.”
Duan Ling Tian shrugged when he heard Zhao Ming’s threats, and said indifferently, “Then go ahead and kill me, Elder Ming… We don’t have to go find any 10,000 Year Stalactite Milk.”
“You think I don’t dare?” Zhao Ming burst into rage, and his Origin Energy raged with a raise of his hand.
Eight ancient horned dragon silhouettes coiled down and accumulated force while waiting to be deployed.
“Elder Ming!” Tang Huo frowned then stopped Zhao Ming, and he said via voice transmission. “So long as we’ve found the 10,000 Year Stalactite Milk, are you afraid you won’t have a chance to kill Duan Ling Tian? He’s provoking you to anger, don’t fall into his trap.” Zhao Ming took a deep breath when he heard Tang Huo, then suppressed the rage in his heart.
“Duan Ling Tian, where’s the 10,000 Year Stalactite Milk?” Tang Huo looked at Duan Ling Tian and asked with a low voice.
“Elder Tang Huo… Both of you will let me off if I bring both of you to the 10,000 Year Stalactite Milk?” Duan Ling Tian asked with a ‘vigilant’ expression.
“Yes.” Tang Huo wasn’t surprised by Duan Ling Tian’s request, and he didn’t even think before agreeing to it.
“How about Elder Zhao Ming? You’re willing to let me off?” Duan Ling Tian looked at Zhao Ming.
“Hmph!” Zhao Ming grunted coldly and paid no attention to Duan Ling Tian.
“Duan Ling Tian, don’t worry… So long as you bring us to the 10,000 Year Stalactite Milk, I and Elder Ming will let you off,” said Tang Huo to Duan Ling Tian.
“Then both of you establish a vow under the Nine-Nine Heavenly Tribulation… Otherwise, I’d rather die than take the two of you to the 10,000 Year Stalactite Milk!” Duan Ling Tian had an expression as if he was indifferent towards what happened.
“You!!” Zhao Ming’s face went gloomy.
“Elder Ming!” Tang Huo frowned then persuaded via voice transmission. “So what if we do as he say and establish a vow? So long as we obtain the 10,000 Year Stalactite Milk, we’ll surely be able to smoothly breakthrough to the seventh level of the Void Initiation Stage!”
“At that time, with our strengths, even if we forcefully trespass into the Dragon and Phoenix Academy to kill Duan Ling Tian… I presume the Imperial Family wouldn’t say anything about it.” As he finished speaking, Tang Huo had a confident expression, and he seemed as if he’d already seen the scene of himself breaking through to the seventh level of the Void Initiation Stage.
Zhao Ming pondered for a short moment when he heard this, then he agreed.
Subsequently, under Duan Ling Tian’s gaze, Zhao Ming and Tang Huo pinched open their fingers, then used their own blood and the Nine-Nine Heavenly Tribulation as the witness to establish the vow.
Once they locate the 10,000 Year Stalactite Milk under Duan Ling Tian’s help, they would allow Duan Ling Tian to leave and not make things difficult for Duan Ling Tian.
Duan Ling Tian wasn’t surprised when he saw Tang Huo and Zhao Ming establish the vow.
He was able to sense the yearning the two of them had towards the 10,000 Year Stalactite Milk, so he had nothing to fear.
“Squeak squeak~” The little gold mouse cried out by Duan Ling Tian’s ears and said via voice transmission, “Big Brother Ling Tian, you really intend to bring them to the 10,000 Year Stalactite Milk?”
Duan Ling Tian replied via voice transmission. “Of course I wouldn’t.”
“Then what’s the use of making them establish this vow?” The little gold mouse asked curiously.
“I asked them to establish this vow only for the sake of giving them a preconceived impression, and make them think that I’m really willing to bring them to the 10,000 Year Stalactite Milk…” Duan Ling Tian explained via voice transmission. “Otherwise, if I don’t make them establish the vow, they might think that I’m playing some sort of trick! In that way, it wouldn’t be easy to implement my plan.”
“Plan?” The little gold mouse’s voice transmission was filled with a bewilderment.
“You’ll know very soon.” Duan Ling Tian’s voice transmission was filled with mystery.
The little gold mouse lay on Duan Ling Tian’s shoulder, and her pair of jade green eyes flickered with slight anticipation.
“We’ve already established the vow… Now you can take us to the 10,000 Year Stalactite Milk, right?” Tang Huo asked Duan Ling Tian with a low voice.
“Duan Ling Tian, don’t think of playing any tricks… Otherwise, I’ll surely kill you!” Zhao Ming spoke out in a timely manner that was in perfect harmony with Tang Huo.
“What tricks can I play?” Duan Ling Tian shrugged. “Both of you are sixth level Void Initiation Stage experts. Could it be that you’re afraid that a little first level Void Prying Stage martial artist will play tricks on you?”
Subsequently, under Duan Ling Tian’s directions, Tang Huo and Zhao Ming carried him along as they flew at full speed towards northwest.
After they arrived nearby the Ancient City of Everlast, Duan Ling Tian pointed towards the north. “Over there!”
“Duan Ling Tian, it’s the territory of the Darkstone Empire ahead… Are you sure the 10,000 Year Stalactite Milk is in the Darkstone Empire?” Tang Huo looked at Duan Ling Tian with slight doubt.
“Elder Huo, if you don’t believe me, then you can kill me right now. How about it?” Duan Ling Tian spoke indifferently.
Tang Huo instantly went silent.
The corners of Duan Ling Tian’s mouth curled into a wisp of disdain.
So what if you’re a sixth level Void Initiation Stage martial artist?
Aren’t you being completely played by me!?
“When I was at the Crimson Sky Kingdom the last time, I almost forgot that place… If I thought of it at that time, even if that mysterious expert wasn’t there, I would be able to escape them as well.” Duan Ling Tian thought to himself.
Duan Ling Tian was convinced that once Tang Huo and Zhao Ming were trapped in that place, they would most likely be trapped to death.
“Phoenix Nest City!” In next to no time, Duan Ling Tian was carried by Tang Huo and Zhao Ming to flash past in the sky above Phoenix Nest City.
“I wonder if Tian Wu, City Governor Feng, Elder Kong, and Grandma Xu have already left…” Duan Ling Tian thought to himself.
Not long after, under the guidance of Duan Ling Tian, Tang Huo and Zhao Ming carried Duan Ling Tian to descend in a spacious gorge.
Within the forge was a ball of gas that were like clouds and mist that had fathered together, and the condition within it couldn’t be seen clearly.
“What place is this?” Zhao Ming and Tang Huo curiously sized up the surroundings.
In the end, their gazes descended onto the ball of mist and clouds that was before them.
The clouds and mist revealed various mysteriousness that caused them to feel it wasn’t simple.
“Elder Tang Huo, you can let me go now, right? If you don’t let me go, how do I lead the way?” Duan Ling Tian looked at the hand Tang Huo held his shoulder with and spoke indifferently.
Tang Huo instead disregarded him.
“Then you can go look for it yourself.” Duan Ling Tian shrugged and had an expression of being indifferent and not anxious.
“Duan Ling Tian, I hope you don’t play tricks on us. Otherwise… You ought to know the consequences.” Tang Huo threatened with a low voice.
At the same time, he relaxed the hand that grabbed onto Duan Ling Tian’s shoulder.
“Even if I want to play tricks on the two of you, I need to have the strength to do it,” Duan Ling Tian said indifferently.
Meanwhile, Duan Ling Tian noticed that Zhao Ming had approached the ball of cloud and mist ahead, and a wisp of disdain couldn’t help but appear on the corners of his mouth.
Unless Zhao Ming was an Inscription Master as well, otherwise, don’t hope of recognizing that Inscription Formation.
This place was precisely the place Duan Ling Tian had come to with Feng Wu Dao, Feng Tian Wu, and Elder Kong.
That ball of cloud and mist was precisely an Inscription formation. And the former Soulcleanse Pool was within the Inscription Formation.
However, because the Nether Soul Fruit was already eaten by Little Gold, that pool of water had become ordinary water.
“Squeak squeak~” The little gold mouse stood on Duan Ling Tian’s shoulder and cried out lightly, then said via voice transmission. “Big Brother Ling Tian, why did you bring them here?”
“You little fellow, you still can’t guess what I want to do?” Duan Ling Tian said via voice transmission, “You’re too stupid…”
“Squeak squeak~” The little gold mouse was instantly unhappy when she heard Duan Ling Tian.
“Elders, please follow me.” Duan Ling Tian called out to Tang Huo and Zhao Ming, then walked over to the ball of clouds and mist with large strides, intending to enter into it.
“Hmph! That place can’t be entered at all.” Zhao Ming couldn’t help but laugh in ridicule when he saw Duan Ling Tian’s actions.
Earlier, he’d tried to walk into the ball of clouds and mist, yet he noticed that there was a shapeless energy blocking him out.
It was as even someone had set some sort of restriction here.
But in the next moment, he was completely dumbstruck when he saw the ball of mist and clouds actually split open when Duan Ling Tian walked over with large strides.
What’s going on?
Tang Huo was stunned as well.
He naturally didn’t know that the ball of clouds and mist was the image formed by the Inscription Formation.
Whereas at this moment, it was precisely Duan Ling Tian who’d stretched his Spiritual Force out and successfully opened the Inscription Formation.
“Elders, the 10,000 Year Stalactite Milk is inside.” Duan Ling Tian walked first into the mist and clouds that had split open, and his figure slowly fused into the dusky and light mist.
When they saw Duan Ling Tian vanish before their eyes.
“Let’s go in!” Tang Huo called Zhao Ming and the two of them followed in.
After the two of them entered, they were stunned on the spot.
Their faces were filled with surprise as they looked at the spacious lake before them.
Both of them never imagined that there was actually such a scene behind the ball of clouds and mist within the gorge…
At this moment, they completely didn’t notice that the clouds and mist behind them was swiftly closing, and it completely closed together not long after.
Whereas beside them, a wisp of a grin appeared on the corners of Duan Ling Tian’s mouth, and he took two steps back.
In the next moment.
At almost the instant Duan Ling Tian’s figure moved and charged towards the clouds and mist, an exit that would only accommodate him appeared there.
Duan Ling Tian seemed to have transformed into a gust of wind as he passed through the exit and charged out to return to the gorge.
Whereas meanwhile, that exit instantly closed.
Meanwhile, Tang Huo and Zhao Ming who were within the Inscription Formation behind the cloud and mist both jolted awake from their shock.
“Duan Ling Tian has fled!” The two of them went gloomy and their figure flashed out to arrive at the spot Duan Ling Tian stood at before he fled.
They wanted to go out from here, yet they noticed a shapeless energy sealing them within and causing them to be unable to go out.
“Dammit! We’ve been played by that Duan Ling Tian.” Tang Huo was slightly exasperated.
“Duan Ling Tian!” Zhao Ming let out an alarmed shout, and the Origin Energy on his body skyrocketed.
A spirit sword appeared out of thin air within his hand, then his fifth level Wind Concept fluxed as he stabbed towards the barrier before him that was formed from the shapeless energy.
However, only a muffled sound sounded out in reply to Zhao Ming’s attack.
Zhao Ming was unable to break open the barrier condensed from the shapeless energy when exerting his full strength.
