Chapter 596: Possessing Treasure Brings Calamity
Translator: KurazyTolanzuraytor Editor: Jay
The Three-Eyed Flame Tiger was unable to care about the gorge being shaken to the point it quaked, he raised his head to look up into the sky, and his pair of eyes that were like gongs sprung fully open into two circles as he looked at the yellow colored figure that slowly descended.
Why has this Lady returned?
My life is over!
The Three-Eyed Flame Tiger shouted in his heart.
“Big Guy, I never expected that you miss me so much, you’re actually so excited from seeing me.” The yellow clothed young girl descended from the air to stand on the spacious back of the Three-Eyed Flame Tiger, and her cheeky eyes flashed with slyness as she lightly smiled.
Instantly, the Three-Eyed Flame Tiger’s body stiffened, and it didn’t dare tremble in the slightest any longer.
He didn’t want to infuriate this Lady.
If this Lady were to be unhappy and condensed ice with her Ice Concept to seal him up, then he would really not know what to do.
From the beginning until the end, the Three-Eyed Flame Tiger never took a since glance at Duan Ling Tian who followed behind.
“This big fellow is completely afraid of Xue Nai now.” Duan Ling Tian couldn’t help but sigh with emotion.
“Big Brother Ling Tian, come over quickly.” Han Xue Nai stood on the back of the Three-Eyed Flame Tiger as she called out to Duan Ling Tian.
Duan Ling Tian was in midair when a black and a while bolt of lightning flashed out from beneath his sleeve, and they descended onto the back of the Three-Eyed Flame Tiger first.
It was precisely the two little pythons.
“What swift speed these two little fellows possess.” Duan Ling Tian couldn’t help but sigh when he saw the scene before him.
In the past, the cultivation of the two little fellows had surpassed him.
Now, many years had passed since then, and he’d obtained fortuitous encounters again and again, yet he was still unable to catch up to these two little fellows.
“I hope a can surpass these two little fellows in one go after I come out from the Sword Monarch’s Treasure vault this time.” Duan Ling Tian silently thought in his heart.
Meanwhile, Duan Ling Tian descended onto the back of the Three-Eyed Flame Tiger as well.
“Big Guy, let’s go! We’re returning to the Darkstone Empire.” Han Xue Nai raised her leg and lightly stomped, shocking the Three-Eyed Flame Tiger to the point it shuddered, and then the gorge shook once more. At the same time, it flew up into the air and entered high above in the clouds.
Subsequently, it carried Duan Ling Tian and Han Xue Nai to head all the way to the Darkstone Empire.
On the way, Duan Ling Tian sat cross-legged and cultivated silently.
Nine Dragons War Sovereign Technique, Lightning Wyrm Form!
A month of time passed by extremely swiftly.
Meanwhile, Duan Ling Tian had completely exhausted the medicinal strength of the Void Fuse Fruit, and his cultivation approached the bottle neck at the end of the ninth level of the Void Prying Stage, the final bottleneck of the Void Prying Stage.
So long as Duan Ling Tian comprehended a type of concept and broke through this bottleneck, then he’d be able to officially break through to the Void Initiation Stage and his cultivation would undergo a tremendous change.
“My cultivation will step into the final bottleneck of the Void Prying Stage in at most one month of time… At that time, what I have to do is comprehend Wind Concept or Lightning Concept to step into the Void Initiation Stage in one go!” Duan Ling Tian’s eyes flashed as he thought in his heart.
“Big Brother Ling Tian, we’ve arrived at the Darkstone Empire.” Meanwhile, Han Xue Nai’s voice that was like an oriole sounded out.
“Xue Nai.” Duan Ling Tian suddenly recalled something. “Ask this big fellow to head towards the eastern part of Darkstone Empire… I want to go take back something.”
“Big Brother Ling Tian, what do you want to take?” Xue Nai asked curiously.
“I don’t know yet.” Duan Ling Tian shook his head.
When she heard Duan Ling Tian’s words, Han Xue Nai was even more curious, and she instructed to the Three-Eyed Flame Tiger to head towards the east of Darkstone Empire.
“Big Brother Ling Tian, where do you want to go?” Han Xue Nai couldn’t help but ask.
“Flourishing Summer City.” Duan Ling Tian spoke slowly.
“Flourishing Summer City was precisely the city in the Darkstone Empire that Duan Ling Tian had gone to before he headed to the Darkhan Dynasty for the first time during the period before the Young Genius Competition began.
He’d issued a reward assignment in the Flourishing Summer City’s Treasure Gathering Pavilion.
Rewarding a grade four spirit sword for the Ageless Root.
At that time, after his reward failed to bear fruit in the Darkhan Dynasty’s Milky Way City, he didn’t rush to go take back the grade four spirit sword in Flourishing Summer City when he returned.
He’d always been thinking that perhaps during this period of time, there would be someone who was able to locate the Ageless Root.
“I wonder if someone has located the Ageless Root now…? If there isn’t, then I’m afraid there’s no hope in the Darkstone Empire.” Duan Ling Tian thought in his heart.
Meanwhile, he hoped so much that when he arrived at the Flourishing Summer City’s Treasure Gathering Pavilion, what he took back wasn’t a grade four spirit sword but the Ageless Root.
If he was able to obtain the Ageless Root, then not to mention a single grade four spirit sword, even if it was ten grade four spirit swords, Duan Ling Tian would still pay without the slightest hesitation.
The Three-Eyed Flame Tiger’s speed was extremely swift, and they arrived nearby Flourishing Summer City before long.
“Big fellow, wait here for me and Xue Nai.” Duan Ling Tian looked at the Three-Eyed Flame Tiger and spoke.
The Three-Eyed Flame Tiger raised its head proudly and utterly disregarded Duan Ling Tian.
“Big guy, do you want to become a popsicle again?” Right at this moment, Xue Nai’s voice that was like the sound of a devil caused the Three-Eyed Flame Tiger’s body to be unable to refrain from trembling, and it enormous head started swaying.
“Since you don’t want to, then do whatever my Big Brother Ling Tian asks you to in the future… Did you hear me?” Xue Nai continued.
Meanwhile, the Three-Eyed Flame Tiger could only grievously nod its enormous head, yet didn’t dare be displeased in the slightest.
Duan Ling Tian shook his head and smiled, then he brought along Han Xue Nai and the two little pythons to fly down and enter Flourishing Summer City before heading towards the Treasure Gathering Pavilion.
“Hey, what a beautiful little girl… Little girl, don’t follow this pretty boy anymore in the future, follow this Lord instead. I guarantee you’ll have a very good life.” Suddenly, a frivolous voice sounded out.
At the side of the roar, a bald man that was covered in alcohol flew out to pounce towards Han Xue Nai, and his face was filled with a smile of lust.
“You’re courting death!” Duan Ling Tian’s face sank and he was about to make a move.
Yet right at this moment, a piercing howl sounded out, and then saw a black bolt of lightning flash by.
Subsequently, the bald man was still halfway over when his chest suddenly exploded open, and it ceaselessly sprayed dazzling and beautiful fresh blood.
The bald man’s pupils constricted, then his legs split open before directly falling onto the ground, and he was completely devoid of any signs of life.
The black bolt of lightning appeared once again, and it descended onto Han Xue Nai’s shoulder this time to reveal its figure.
It was precisely the little black python.
“Hiss hiss~” The little black python complacently shook his head, and he flicked his tongue as he looked at Han Xue Nai as if he was seeking credit.
“Little Black is so good.” Han Xue Nai wasn’t surprised in the slightest by the little black python swiftly killing the bald man, and her face was covered with tender affection as she lightly rubbed the little black pythons small head.
Meanwhile, the surrounding people like with terrified expression at this pair of girl and snake, and all of them kept a good distance away, as they were deeply afraid of offending this pair of maleficent existences.
Duan Ling Tian glanced indifferently at the bald man’s corpse before raising his head and continuing forward.
Although the Flourishing Summer City was chaotic as always, because of the bald man’s death, Duan Ling Tian and Han Xue Nai had become existences that no one dared to offend easily.
They moved smoothly all along away to arrive at the Treasure Gathering Pavilion.
After walking into the pavilion and ascending the second floor, Duan Ling Tian withdrew the jade ornament half before the same counter and passed it to the middle aged man behind the counter. “I offered a grade four spirit sword as a reward for the Ageless Root, was it successful?”
The middle aged man was the same person from that day, he returned to his senses when he heard Duan Ling Tian, and only now did he recognize Duan Ling Tian. “Guest, the thing you’re looking for hasn’t been obtained yet… Will you continue keeping up the reward, or will you withdraw the reward item?”
“I’ll withdraw it,” said Duan Ling Tian.
He currently held no hope towards finding the Ageless Root in the Darkstone Empire.
“Alright.” The middle aged man withdrew an exquisite long box from beneath the counter, and after he opened it, a spirit sword silently lay within…
It was exactly the grade four spirit sword Duan Ling Tian placed here that day!
The middle aged man combined the half jade ornament that Duan Ling Tian passed over with the other half within the box before nodding. “It’s correct. Guest, this is the item you place as a reward.” As he spoke, the middle aged man withdrew the spirit sword and passed it to Duan Ling Tian.
Duan Ling Tian received the spirit sword and directly put it away into his Spatial Ring.
“Guest, aren’t you going to check it?” The middle aged man couldn’t help but be stunned when he saw Duan Ling Tian’s movements that were so direct.
Wasn’t this young man afraid that spirit sword isn’t the grade four spirit sword from before?
After all, the outward appearance of a spirit sword was copied extremely easily.
“There’s no need!” Duan Ling Tian shook his head before turning around and leaving with Han Xue Nai.
What a joke!
Not to mention his Spiritual Force was sufficient to directly detect the grade of the spirit sword, even if he didn’t use his Spiritual Force today, he’d already confirmed it at the instant his hand touched the spirit sword.
The spirit sword from before was indeed the grade four spirit sword he’d casually refined that day.
After he left the Treasure Gathering Pavilion, Duan Ling Tian and Han Xue Nai had a meal together before leaving Flourishing Summer City.
They’d only just exited the city gate when Han Xue Nai said to Duan Ling Tian via voice transmission, “Big Brother Ling Tian, someone is following us…”
“Yes.” Duan Ling Tian nodded.
He’s noticed since long ago that since the moment they left the Treasure Gathering Pavilion, there was a person that was following him and Han Xue Nai from the shadows.
That person’s cultivation was rather high, and it was an existence at the Void Initiation Stage.
“Possessing treasures brings calamity… These words aren’t wrong in the slightest.” Duan Ling Tian sighed.
“Big Brother Ling Tian, what you mean is that person has come for the grade four spirit sword you just took from the Treasure Gathering Pavilion?” Han Xue Nai asked.
“There’s only this possibility.” Duan Ling Tian nodded as his eyes flashed. “Moreover, the person’s identity ought to be not simple, and it’s even to the extent that he’s possibly the Pavilion Master of the Treasure Gathering Pavilion!”
An existence at the eighth level of the Void Initiation Stage.
Within the entire Flourishing Summer City, Duan Ling Tian could only connect this person together with the Pavilion Master of the Treasure Gathering Pavilion.
As for other people, it would probably be impossible for them to have such a cultivation.
Duan Ling Tian and Han Xue Nai had only just exited the city gate for a short period of time.
A piercingly cold howl of the wind swept over and in the blink of an eye, it had appeared not far ahead from Duan Ling Tian and Han Xue Nai.
An aged figure appeared before the eyes of Duan Ling Tian and Han Xue Nai.
This was an old man with a strong body and a goatee, and his eyes flickered with a sheen of greed.
“Pavilion Master of the Treasure Gathering Pavilion?” Although Duan Ling Tian had already guessed it, he still wanted to confirm it by asking.
“You’re really smart to actually be able to guess my identity.” The old man with a goatee glanced deeply at Duan Ling Tian. “But smart people normally don’t live long.”
