Chapter 564: Demon?
Translator: KurazyTolanzuraytor Editor: Jay
Duan Ling Tian had only just acquired the demon beast egg when the little gold mouse let out a sharp cry as she pounced over, and she swiftly seized away the demon beast egg like a thunderbolt.
“You little fellow, are you afraid I wouldn’t give it to you?” Duan Ling Tian spoke angrily as he looked at the little gold mouse that embraced the demon beast egg as if she’d obtained a precious treasure.
Meanwhile, Luo Zhan, Su Li, and Chen Shao Shuai’s gazes were slightly dazed as they shot at the little gold mouse.
They were extremely curious why the demon beast by Duan Ling Tian’s side wanted this demon beast egg that had lost all signs of life?
Not only were they curious, even Duan Ling Tian was similarly curious.
He’d bid for this demon beast egg because the little gold mouse wanted it, as for what the little gold mouse wanted to do with it, that was something he had completely zero knowledge about.
After the worker from the auction house received the money and left while closing the door on his way out, Duan Ling Tian’s group of four saw to their shock.
The little gold mouse’s figure slightly enlarged, and at the same time, she grabbed onto the demon beast egg with her hand before directly shoving it into her mouth.
The demon beast egg was just able to be swallowed by her.
“Gulp!” At the instant that the little gold mouse swallowed the demon beast egg, Duan Ling Tian’s group of four couldn’t refrain from fiercely gulping down a mouthful of saliva.
The questioning gazes of Luo Zhan’s group of three had descended onto Duan Ling Tian.
Duan Ling Tian laughed bitterly as he spread out his hands, and his expression was as if he didn’t know anything beforehand.
“Little Gold, you…” Right when Duan Ling Tian was prepared to ask the little gold mouse why she swallowed the demon beast egg.
Duan Ling Tian saw the little gold mouse had shrunk down once again, and her fluffy and chubby figure fell down before falling asleep on the table.
This state she was in was exactly similar to her state after consuming the Nether Soul Fruit.
“Could it be that Little Gold has eaten that demon beast egg like a spirit fruit?” Duan Ling Tian had a strange expression.
“Duan Ling Tian, this Jade-eyed Heavenly Mouse by your side is truly bizarre.” Luo Zhan shook his head as he sighed with emotion.
“Jade-eyed Heavenly Mouse?” Chen Shao Shuai’s eyes lit up. “What a domineering name! Duan Ling Tian, where did you find this little fellow, if I have the chance, I want to get one and raise it as well.”
“I encountered her in an auction house all those years ago… Now that I speak about it, I even spent a few million gold on her.” Duan Ling Tian couldn’t help but recall the scene of him bidding for the little gold mouse in the Black Wind City Ma Clan auction house.
“Only a few million gold?” Luo Zhan had an expression of jealousy and envy. “Duan Ling Tian, your luck is really heaven-defying!”
He knew clearly of how terrifying the little gold mouse by Duan Ling Tian’s side was.
Although Chen Shao Shuai didn’t say anything, he looked at Duan Ling Tian with a gaze of envy.
“Jade-eyed Heavenly Mouse?” Su Li pondered for a short while before his gaze abruptly lit up, and then he looked at Duan Ling Tian. “Duan Ling Tian, this little gold mouse by your side is a Jade-eyed Heavenly Mouse? Are you sure?”
At this instant, Su Li’s breathing had become heavy.
“Su Li, you know of the Jade-eyed Heavenly Mouse?” It was the first time that Luo Zhan had seen Su Li lose his composure like this, and he asked curiously.
Chen Shao Shuai looked over as well.
Su Li muttered. “If this little gold mouse is really a Jade-eyed Heavenly Mouse, then Duan Ling Tian has really made a fortune… A Jade-eyed Heavenly Mouse for a few million gold?”
“Su Li, since you know of the Jade-eyed Heavenly Mouse, then tell us about it.” Luo Zhan and Chen Shao Shuai both had curious expressions.
Su Li’s loss of composure allowed them to realize that the little gold mouse by Duan Ling Tian’s side was extremely extraordinary.
Su Li glanced at Duan Ling Tian as if he was confirming something.
Duan Ling Tian nodded.
Only now did Su Li look at the little gold mouse that lay on the table and had fallen asleep as he said, “I once saw records related to the Jade-eyed Heavenly Mouse in some ancient books…”
“The Jade-eyed Heavenly Mouse is a type of extremely formidable demon beast! When it matured, it’s even able to transform into a ‘Demon’ and take human form.” When he spoke up to here, Su Li’s voice was slightly trembling.
“Demon?” Su Li’s words caused the pupils of Chen Shao Shuai and Luo Zhan to constrict.
As long as it was able to be called a Demon, then it was at least an existence at the Void Transformation Stage.
Even if it was a demon beast at the ninth level of the Void Interpretation Stage, the demon beast didn’t have the qualifications to be called a Demon.
Only a demon beast that has stepped into the Void Transformation Stage and was able to take human form had the qualifications to be called a Demon.
The words Demon had always been a synonym for expert.
In Cloud Continent, every Demon was an existence with shocking strength.
Some formidable Demons even had the chance to become a Demon Monarch and even a Demon Emperor…
A Demon Monarch was equivalent to the Martial Monarch amongst human martial artists.
A Demon Emperor was equivalent to the Martial Emperor amongst human martial artists.
Their strengths were exceedingly high to the point it was difficult to imagine.
“Demon! The bloodline of a Demon actually flows within the body of this Jade-eyed Heavenly Mouse?” Chen Shao Shuai was dumbstruck.
“In other words, so long as it matures, it’s extremely like to transform into a Demon and possess a formidable strength at the Void Transformation Stage?” At this moment, Luo Zhan could almost hear his own heartbeat.
“Yes.” Su Li nodded.
For a time, Luo Zhan and Chen Shao Shuai looked at Duan Ling Tian with eyes that had gone red.
He bought a demon beast that could transform into a Demon for a few million gold?
Why don’t we have such luck!?
“It’s alright if the two of you know this… But you must not tell anyone else.” Su Li glanced at Chen Shao Shuai and Luo Zhan with a gaze of warning.
“Don’t worry.” Luo Zhan and Chen Shao Shuai hurriedly nodded.
After they found out about the background of the Jade-eyed Heavenly Mouse, they knew that it was a hot potato.
Outsiders didn’t know of the background of the little gold mouse by Duan Ling Tian’s side, otherwise, they could imagine that experts from all over would come to seize the little gold mouse from Duan Ling Tian.
At that time, even the top experts in the Darkhan Dynasty would probably be interested in the little gold mouse by Duan Ling Tian’s side.
This little gold mouse was a future Demon.
Its potential was so great that it was shocking.
Presently, they’d already decided to bury this secret in the depths of their hearts.
They wouldn’t sell Duan Ling Tian out.
Not because of anything else, but because of Duan Ling Tian’s acceptance.
Earlier, they’d clearly seen the gaze Su Li specially shot at Duan Ling Tian to ask Duan Ling Tian’s opinion before he spoke.
They knew that if Duan Ling Tian didn’t agree, it would be impossible for Su Li to speak about the background of the Jade-eyed Heavenly Mouse.
Whereas since Duan Ling Tian agreed, it was sufficient to show that Duan Ling Tian didn’t take them as outsiders.
Treat someone how he treats you.
They weren’t ungrateful bastards.
“Duan Ling Tian, not only is your natural talent heaven defying, even you luck is difficult to imagine… Buying a future Demon for a few million gold, even I’m slightly envious.” Chen Shao Shuai sighed.
Luo Zhan nodded in deep agreement.
Duan Ling Tian snickered in his heart.
Actually, when he heard what Su Li said earlier, he knew that Su Li didn’t understand a Jade-eyed Heavenly Mouse.
At least, his understanding was far inferior to the Rebirth Martial Emperor.
In the knowledge Su Li possessed, a Jade-eyed Heavenly Mouse was only a Void Transformation Stage Demon when it matured, whereas, according to the memories of the Rebirth Martial Emperor, once a Jade-eyed Heavenly Mouse matured, it wouldn’t just simple as an ordinary Demon.
In the history of Cloud Continent, the Jade-eyed Heavenly Mouse kind had no lack of existences at the Demon Emperor Stage, their strengths were exceedingly high, and they inspired awe in all directions.
“We ought to leave.” Duan Ling Tian took the lead to stand up before grabbing the little gold mouse in his hand and placing her on his broad shoulder, and then he called out to Luo Zhan and the others.
The three of them walked shoulder to shoulder with Duan Ling Tian as they left the room at the second floor of the auction house together.
This time, besides Duan Ling Tian who bought many materials; Luo Zhan, Su Li, and Chen Shao Shui had more or less bought some things.
After their group of four left the auction house, they directly returned to the courtyard and returned to their rooms to cultivate.
“I wonder if any change will occur after Little Gold swallowed that demon beast egg that had lost all signs of life… I hope she’ll be able to break through to the ninth level of the Void Prying Stage.” Duan Ling Tian glanced at the little gold mouse that was snored loudly as she slept, and he thought to himself.
The stronger the little gold mouse’s strength was, the greater help to him she would be.
“Once Little Gold awakens, I ought to go look for that Ageless Root.” Duan Ling Tian thought to himself.
“If I’m able to refine the Rebirth Pill before the Young Genius Competition of the Darkstone Empire, then I might have the chance to break through to the Void Initiation Stage in a short period of time and even enter the Sword Monarch’s Treasure!” Duan Ling Tian’s mood surged, and he seemed as if he’d already seen his extremely bright future.
Gradually, Duan Ling Tian calmed down his heart.
Nine Dragons War Sovereign Technique, Lightning Wyrm Form!
Duan Ling Tian’s mind was completely immersed into his cultivation, and he forgot the time and everything else.
Azure Forest Imperial Kingdom, the location of the former Seven Star Sword Sect, in the sky above Dubhe Peak.
Suddenly, the clouds and mist in the horizon roiled as an enormous figure plunged downwards.
The enormous figure had an extremely swift speed, and in the blink of an eye, it had descended onto the vast platform on the peak of Dubhe Peak.
“Who is it?!” Right at this moment, three old men came out from the former Trade Hall at the side of Dubhe Peak.
They were precisely the elders of the Azure Forest Tri-Sect.
“R…. Roc! The Seven Star Sword Sect’s Roc!” The three old men looked at the Roc that stared fixedly at them, and their faces went pale. “Dammit! Why… Why has it appeared here!?”
“Flee!” Their hearts trembled, they didn’t dare arouse the thought of going against it, and they divided into three directions, soaring into the sky and intending to fly off into the distance.
But would they be able to flee?
Suddenly, the Roc spread open its wings that covered the sky, and it abruptly flapped towards the ground.
Instantly, the dust on the ground was completely swept away.
The Roc seemed to have transformed into a bolt of lightning as it swiftly flashed out to charge towards one of the old men.
Even though the old man was a second level Void Initiation Stage martial artist with shocking speed, yet that little bit of speed of his wasn’t even worth mentioning before the Roc.
In the blink of an eyes, the Roc had caught up to him.
The sharp claws of the Roc swept out to grab onto the old man’s head before directly twisting it off.
A second level Void Initiation Stage martial artist, dead!
Subsequently, the Roc repeated the same move, catching up to the other two old men in succession before killing them one by one.
After killing the three old men, the Roc looked at the empty Dubhe Peak with a pair of eyes that revealed a trace of grief.
The Roc spread open its wings before started to swiftly search through all over Dubhe Peak and even the surrounding six great sword peaks.
As long as it saw an Azure Forest Tri-Sect elder or disciples, the Roc would kill all of them.
