Translator: KurazyTolanzuraytor Editor: Jay
After the Three-Eyed Flame Tiger left, Duan Ling Tian and Han Xue Nai entered the Imperial City of Eastern Mulberry Empire together.
After all, it was an Imperial City of an Empire and the area it occupied was equivalent to the Darkstone Empire’s Imperial City.
After Duan Ling Tian and Han Xue Nai entered the city, they casually found a restaurant to eat.
“Hiss hiss~” The tongues of the two little pythons flicked out like bolts of lightning as they seized the food on the table before Duan Ling Tian and Han Xue Nai, and it caused the two of them to be unable to refrain from shaking their heads.
“Big Brother Ling Tian, were Little Black and Little White always so gluttonous?” Han Xue Nai looked at Duan Ling Tian and asked with a smile.
“More or less.” Duan Ling Tian nodded, and then he called over the attendant to order another two tables of dishes for the two little pythons to eat by themselves.
“Hiss hiss~” Instantly, the two little pythons become excited.
“Thank you, Big Brother.”
“Thank you, Big Brother.”
At practically the same moment, the voice of a young boy and young girl entered into Duan Ling Tian’s ears via voice transmission, and they were filled with delight.
It was precisely the voices of the two little pythons.
At the same time that Duan Ling Tian’s face revealed a smile from seeing the two little pythons eating happily, his eyes revealed slight worry.
This scene just happened to be captured by Han Xue Nai.
“Big Brother Ling Tian, what’re you thinking about?” Han Xue Nai asked. “You seem to be worried about something…”
Duan Ling Tian sighed and slowly spoke of the matter of the little gold mouse without concealing anything.
Actually, there was no need to conceal anything.
“Jade-eyed Heavenly Mouse?” Han Xue Nai was surprised. “Big Brother Ling Tian, there was actually another Jade-eyed Heavenly Mouse by your side? How did you encounter it? This Jade-eyed Heavenly Mouse is the descendant of a Saint Beast, and in terms of natural talent and potential, it isn’t inferior to the current Little Black and Little White!”
“I bid for her during an auction,” said Duan Ling Tian.
Han Xue Nai’s gaze become weird.
Bid for a Jade-eyed Heavenly Mouse from an auction?
Who was so wasteful to the point of selling a Jade-eyed Heavenly Mouse in an auction?
Even if it was in the Foreign Lands, a Jade-eyed Heavenly Mouse was an extremely rare existence, and whenever an infant Jade-eyed Heavenly Mouse appeared, it would practically cause a slaughter.
There would utterly be no one that was so wasteful of god’s give gifts to the point of selling a Jade-eyed Heavenly Mouse in an auction.
“That person thought Little Gold was only an ordinary Goldfur Mouse.” Duan Ling Tian perceived Han Xue Nai’s bewilderment and he explained.
Han Xue Nai came to a sudden understanding, and at the same time, she consoled Duan Ling Tian. “Big Brother Ling Tian, don’t worry… Little Gold will be fine. As a mouse type demon beast, the Jade-eyed Heavenly Mouse’s intelligence far exceeds ordinary demon beasts.”
“I hope so.” Duan Ling Tian nodded, yet the worry in his eyes didn’t reduce in the slightest.
After they finished eating, Duan Ling Tian brought Han Xue Nai and the two little pythons along to find an inn to stay temporarily.
Normally, besides cultivating, he would take a stroll all around the Imperial City with Han Xue Nai.
In the blink of an eye, 20 days had passed.
Whoosh! Whoosh! Whoosh! Whoosh! Whoosh!
In the sky above the Imperial City, a figure was like a bolt of lightning that ceaselessly flashed about.
Swift like the find, fast like lightning!
Suddenly, a wave of ear piercing howls of the wind sounded out.
In the sky, the 2,000 ancient mammoth silhouettes that flashed in the sky along with the figure that was like a bolt of lightning suddenly trembled before instantly dispersing.
Meanwhile, the speed of the figure that moved along with the wind instantly increased a few times!
In the sky, after the 2,000 ancient mammoth silhouettes dispersed, an enormous silhouette spiraled down, brandishing its claws and baring its fangs…
It was precisely an ancient horned dragon silhouette!
“First level Wind Concept! I’ve finally comprehended it.” Meanwhile, the swiftly flashing figure stopped, and it revealed its true form.
A handsome young man with starry eyes and sword shaped brows.
The young man wore violet clothes that fluttered in the wind, and at the same time that he muttered to himself, his figure lowered down to actually sit cross-legged in the sky before closing his eyes like an old monk in meditation.
After a short moment, a vast Origin Energy instantly swept out from the then young man’s body.
For a time, the surrounding mist and clouds were all swept away.
Meanwhile, the young man slowly opened his eyes.
“I’ve finally broken through!” The young man’s eyes were like a dazzling array of stars, and a wisp of a dense smile appeared on the corners of his mouth.
Along with a command in the young man’s heart, his gaze lightly raised as Origin Energy that were like flames arose on his body.
At the same time, two ancient horned dragon silhouettes condensed into form in the sky above him, and then they spiraled down and ceaselessly danced about.
“First level of the Void Initiation Stage!” The violet clothed young man was precisely Duan Ling Tian.
After many days, he’d finally comprehended first level Wind Concept, moreover, his cultivation that had been advanced to the peak of the ninth level of the Void Prying Stage had broken through to the Void Initiation Stage in one go.
“Wind Concept…” Duan Ling Tian muttered as his figure flashed to merge with the wind.
At this moment, he felt as if he’d merged into one with the wind in the heavens and the earth, and they weren’t separate beings anymore.
“This is Wind Concept? How miraculous.” Duan Ling Tian could clearly feel that at this moment, when he utilized the energy of the Wind Concept, if was as if he was drawing assistance from the energy of all the wind in nature.
He moved like a shadow!
Presently, Duan Ling Tian utilized his movement technique as if he was controlling his limbs.
“Tempest Point!” With a raise of his hand, Duan Ling Tian pointed out with his finger.
Instantly, his Origin Energy point force whistled out along with first level Wind Concept and Advanced Lightning Force as it shot towards high above in the sky and vanished behind the clouds and mist.
In the sky above Duan Ling Tian, three ancient horned dragon silhouettes were surrounded by 2,000 ancient mammoth silhouettes like a myriad of stars surrounding the moon.
“If I utilize a spirit weapon, my strength would be even stronger!” Duan Ling Tian stopped moving once again, and a satisfied smile appeared on his face.
First level Wind Concept.
Void Initiation Stage cultivation.
This was his current strength.
“Besides that, I’ve broken through to the Void Initiation Stage and am already able to officially start cultivating the sixth form of the Nine Dragons War Sovereign Technique, the Earth Dragon Form!” Duan Ling Tian’s eyes flashed, and his mind was completely immersed in the memories of the Rebirth Martial Emperor that were related to the sixth form of the Nine Dragons War Sovereign Technique, the Earth Dragon Form.
The Earth Dragon Form wasn’t only the mental cultivation method for the sixth form of the Nine Dragons War Sovereign Technique, it even carried a high grade Earth Rank defense martial skill with it, the Earth Dragon’s Barrier!
“The fourth form of the Nine Dragons War Sovereign Technique, the Wind Wyrm Form, helped me to comprehend Wind Force… The fifth form, the Lightning Wyrm Form, helped me to comprehend Lightning Force… The sixth form, the Earth Dragon Form will assist me to comprehend Earth Force!
“Besides that, the Earth Dragon Form carries along a high grade Earth Rank defensive martial skill, the Earth Dragon’s Barrier! The Earth Dragon’s Barrier will be the first defensive martial skill I’m cultivating after the Earth Dragon’s Shield, and its able to combine with the Earth Force and Earth Concept to possess extraordinary defensive ability.” The smile on Duan Ling Tian’s face became more and more brilliant.
He understood that since the instant his cultivation stepped into the Void Initiation Stage, his strength had already undergone a tremendous change.
“Earth Force….” Duan Ling Tian’s figure flashed out, stepping on the sky like a swimming dragon to descend onto the boundless ground outside the Eastern Mulberry Empire.
Duan Ling Tian’s descended onto the ground, and his figure followed along with the momentum to lay down, and then the Origin Energy on his body raged to ceaselessly fuse into the ground.
This was the best method to comprehend Earth Force that was recorded into the Earth Dragon Form, and it was also the method the Rebirth Martial Emperor discovered all those years ago.
It was because that the Rebirth Martial Emperor had lain on the boundless ground for three days and three nights that he was able to comprehend Earth Force…
Duan Ling Tian’s Origin Energy ceaselessly gushed out to become the axis between him and the earth, forcefully connecting him and the earth.
A day passed and Duan Ling Tian didn’t have any feeling.
Two days passed, and he still felt nothing.
“During Rebirth Martial Emperor’s first lifetime, he’d lay down just like me and comprehended Earth Force after three days and nights… Whereas I still haven’t sensed even a trace of Earth Force until now, and I haven’t even sensed a Force Seed.” Duan Ling Tian was slightly helpless.
Just like this, the third day passed as well, whereas Duan Ling Tian had finally sensed a trace of Earth Force and had comprehended an Earth Force seed.
On the fifth day, Duan Ling Tian’s Origin Energy still tirelessly fused into the ground and became more and more intimate with the earth.
“As I lie on this boundless earth, my restless heart seems to have calmed down… Before this boundless earth, everything seemed to be not worth mentioning.” Gradually, Duan Ling Tian understood the ground more and more.
At this moment, he lay on the ground as if he was laying in the embrace of his mother…
Night descended, and strands of dense earthen yellow aura finally arose on Duan Ling Tian’s body.
“I’ve finally comprehended Elementary Earth Force!” Duan Ling Tian’s face revealed a brilliant smile. At the same time, he sat up and the Origin Energy on his body pulsated before transforming into numerous strands of dragon shaped Origin Energy that coiled around his body.
Within these numerous strands of dragon shaped Origin Energy, strands of earthen yellow energy gradually leaped up and fuse within it.
Innumerable strands of dragon shaped Origin Energy combined with the earthen yellow colored energy in the end to transform into a defensive qi barrier that twined around Duan Ling Tian’s body.
If one were to look carefully, one would be able to see that within this layer of defensive qi barrier was numerous earthen yellow energy that condensed into numerous dragon shaped energies, and they ceaselessly flowed and flashed within the defensive qi barrier.
“I’ve comprehended Elementary Earth Force, and this high grade Earth Rank defensive martial skill, Earth Dragon’s Barrier, can be considered to have stepped into the Initial Stage!
“But, this stage of Earth Dragon’s Barrier is only effective in withstanding attacks from martial artists at the seventh level of the Void Prying Stage or below… Only after I comprehend Half-step Advanced Earth Force and allow the Earth Dragon’s Barrier to step into the Master Stage would it be of help to me now.” This was something that Duan Ling Tian was extremely clear about.
A defensive martial skill wasn’t all powerful, and it possessed numerous restrictions.
“Presently, only three more days remain before the agreed upon time of meeting with the possessors of the other jade swords… I ought to return already.” Duan Ling Tian thought in his heart before soaring into the sky and returning to the Imperial City of Eastern Mulberry Empire.
“Big Brother Ling Tian, you… You’ve broken through?” Duan Ling Tian had just returned to the inn and had just seen Han Xue Nai when the changes that occurred on him were see through by her.
Duan Ling Tian wasn’t surprised that his cultivation was seen through by Han Xue Nai, and he lightly smiled as he nodded.
“Congratulations, Big Brother Ling Tian.” Han Xue Nai lightly smiled as she congratulated Duan Ling Tian.
