Chapter 649: Ageless Root!
Translator: KurazyTolanzuraytor Editor: Jay
As far as they were concerned, this was the Zhang Clan!
Not to mention the Zhang Clan’s Patriarch was either their husband or father, it was even impossible for all the Zhang Clan elders to side towards an outsider like Duan Ling Tian.
But now, Zhang Shou Yong sticking his foot into the matter and his words that threatened everyone in the Zhang Clan caused them to notice danger.
The Zhang Clan elders recovered from their shock and all of their expressions darkened.
Only the Zhang Clan’s Patriarch had a helpless and bitter smile on his face, and he seemed to have realized since long ago that Zhang Shou Yong would do this.
In next to no time, the group of Zhang Clan elders looked at each other, and the atmosphere at the scene became silent.
Duan Ling Tian knew clearly that the group of Zhang Clan elders were probably communicating via voice transmission now…
Not long after, they would have an outcome.
With Big Brother Zhang’s natural talent and strength, it’s exceedingly easy for him to advance from the Dynasty Martial Competition, and it’s even to the extent that Big Brother Zhang will most probably be able to break through to the Void Interpretation Stage before the Martial Competition of the Ten Dynasties!
A young genius at the Void Interpretation Stage was sufficient to become eminent in the Martial Competition of the Ten Dynasties and crush everyone! If a young genius like this was able to obtain an extremely great honor in the Martial Competition of the Ten Dynasties, then as the power that he’s from… The Zhang Clan would surely be able to obtain numerous benefits.
So… At this moment, it’s impossible for the Zhang Clan to allow Big Brother Zhang to leave. This was something that Duan Ling Tian was extremely sure of.
The facts proved that Duan Ling Tian’s thoughts were entirely correct.
The group of Zhang Clan elders had quickly come to a common view, to follow Zhang Shou Yong’s wishes and punish the culprit!
“Eldest Young Master.” Amongst the group of Zhang Clan elders, the white haired and white browed elder with the highest prestige slowly said, “Although this matter is related to the Madam and Second Young Master, but as the saying goes, all men are equal in the eyes of the law, so we naturally can’t be partial… However, in consideration of this Little Brother being completely unharmed and the three people that attacked him are already dead. According to our Zhang Clan’s rules, the crime of the Madam and Second Young Master doesn’t warrant death.”
“It doesn’t warrant death… But it ought to be sufficient to cripple their cultivation, right?” Zhang Shou Yong spoke directly.
Cripple their cultivation!
As soon as Zhang Shou Yong finished speaking, the atmosphere at the scene became heavy.
On Cloud Continent where the Martial Dao prevailed and the strong were respected, to most martial artists, their cultivation was must more important than their lives.
If they didn’t have their cultivation, then living would be worse than death!
On the other side, when the Zhang Clan Patriarch’s wife and Second Young Master heard Zhang Shou Yong, their countenance went pale.
Cripple our cultivation?
“Mother, I don’t want my cultivation to be crippled.” The Second Young Master shuddered in terror, and he was almost in tears as he spoke.
“Yuan, don’t worry, no one can cripple your cultivation…” The Patriarch’s wife took a deep breath and took a step forward, then she looked at Zhang Shou Yong and said with a low voice, “Without my command, it’s impossible for anyone else to order about the guards by my side… So, this matter is unrelated to Yuan!”
Zhang Shou Yong said indifferently, “If it’s unrelated, then it is unrelated… But your cultivation must be crippled to give my Brother Ling Tian an explanation.”
“Hmph!” The Patriarch’s wife snorted coldly, and had an expression as if she placed herself at the mercy of the Zhang Clan.
Yet her eyes were still filled with killing intent as they stared fixedly at the nearby Duan Ling Tian.
Duan Ling Tian’s face sank when he felt the killing intent of the Patriarch’s wife.
It has already come to this, yet this hateful woman is still so impervious?
She truly deserves death!
“Do it.” The Zhang Clan Patriarch sighed when he saw the group of elders looking over, and he waved his hand as he spoke.
“Enforcement Elder.” The white browed and white haired elder looked at an old man in green clothed and spoke slowly.
The green clothed old man was precisely the Zhang Clan’s Enforcement Elder.
“Madam, I’m sorry.” The Enforcement Elder took a deep breath before walking slowly towards the Patriarch’s wife.
Duan Ling Tian watched all this coldly from the sidelines.
When the Enforcement Elder arrived by the Patriarch’s wife’s side and slowly raised his hand.
“Don’t touch my mother!” An explosively shout suddenly resounded out, it was Zhang Shou Yuan who was unable to endure watching, and his figure flashed out to block before the Patriarch’s wife and blocking the Enforcement Elder.
“Second Young Master.” When the Enforcement Elder saw Zhang Shou Yuan interfering, he couldn’t help but laugh bitterly and slowly put down his hand.
“F**k off! Otherwise, you’ll be crippled as well.” Zhang Shou Yong’s eyes narrowed as a cold light flashed within it, and he shouted with a deep voice.
When Zhang Shou Yuan heard Zhang Shou Yong’s grim shout, his face couldn’t help but go ominous, and his body started trembling. “You… You… Zhang Shou Yong… I’m your blood related younger brother!”
“Blood related younger brother?” Zhang Shou Yong sneered. “Now you admit that you’re my younger brother? In the past, I could endure it when you made things difficult for me, and I could refrain from fussing about it with you… But today, you mother and son have tried to do harm to my friend, and I absolutely will not stand idly by!” Zhang Shou Yong’s words were spoken resolutely, terrifying Zhang Shou Yuan to the point his face went ghastly pale, and his body trembled ceaselessly without any signs of stopping.
“Yuan, move aside.” The Patriarch’s wife spoke with a low voice.
“Father!” Zhang Shou Yuan looked unwillingly at his father, the Patriarch of the Zhang Clan.
But unfortunately, the Zhang Clan’s Patriarch himself was in a difficult position with no way to back down as well.
He was extremely clear about the character of his eldest son.
The words spoken by his eldest son were like poured water, and it was difficult to take back.
Today, if he is unable to give his eldest son an explanation, then he didn’t doubt in the slightest that his eldest son would leave the Zhang Clan.
“Yuan, listen to you mother.” The Zhang Clan Patriarch shook his head as he spoke to Zhang Shou Yuan.
“Second Young Master.” The Enforcement Elder looked at Zhang Shou Yuan and sighed as his hand rose once more.
“Zhang Shou Yong!” But Zhang Shou Yuan still didn’t move aside, and he instead looked at Zhang Shou Yong and said in a low voice, “I know you want to stand up for your friend today… How about this? I’ll use a thing as exchange. So long as you let my mother off, I’ll give that thing to you.” Zhang Shou Yuan’s words caused most people present to be unable to refrain from being stunned.
Could the matter of today be turned back with a single thing?
“I’m not interested!” As expected, Zhang Shou Yong glanced at Zhang Shou Yuan with disdain and spoke indifferently.
“Are you sure you aren’t interested in it?” Zhang Shou Yuan took a deep breath as he slowly raised his hand. “If I’m not wrong, you’ve already been looking for this thing since a few months ago…”
Practically at the instant Zhang Shou Yuan finished speaking, an item had appeared in his hand.
This was a strange thing that looked like a medicinal material.
Most importantly, this medicinal material looked like a root of an old tree, extremely ordinary and no value could be perceived from it.
The group of Zhang Clan elders originally thought that Zhang Shou Yuan would take out some treasure, yet they never expected that it would be such an inconspicuous thing, and they couldn’t help but shake their heads.
All of them felt that Zhang Shou Yuan would be unable to save his mother.
However, Zhang Shou Yong’s originally calm face was completely stunned when he saw the medicinal material in Zhang Shou Yuan’s hand.
Why does this thing look so familiar?
In next to no time, Zhang Shou Yuan reacted to where he had seen it, and he looked at Duan Ling Tian who was beside him.
Presently, Duan Ling Tian stood there dumbstruck, and he stared blankly at the thing in Zhang Shou Yuan’s hand…
“Age… Ageless Root!!” Duan Ling Tian’s feelings now were difficult to describe and exceedingly excited.
Never had he imagined that the thing he yearned for day and night would appear here and appear in the hands of Zhang Shou Yuan.
“Brother Ling Tian.” Meanwhile, an exceedingly clear voice transmission entered into Duan Ling Tian’s ears, and it was precisely the voice of Zhang Shou Yong. “You… Do you want to continue making my Second Mother pay for her actions, or do you want this medicinal material?”
Now, Zhang Shou Yong had recalled it, the thing in Zhang Shou Yuan’s hand was precisely the Ageless Root that Duan Ling Tian had asked him to search for!
“I want the medicinal material!” Duan Ling Tian didn’t hesitate in the slightest and spoke directly.
What a joke!
Even though he hated the Zhang Clan Patriarch’s wife extremely, before the Ageless Root, that little bit of enmity between him and the Patriarch’s wife was nothing.
The Ageless Root was one of the two secondary medicinal catalysts of the Rebirth Pill.
The other type of secondary medicinal catalyst, the Phoenix Wing Herb, had already been obtained by Duan Ling Tian.
Even if the most important main medicinal catalyst of the Rebirth Pill, the Scarlet Phoenix Blood, had been obtained by Duan Ling Tian long ago.
As for the other medicinal materials, they were all extremely ordinary, and Duan Ling Tian had prepared them long ago.
Presently, Duan Ling Tian could be said to have everything but a crucial item ready…
So long as he obtained the Ageless Root, he would be able to directly refine the Rebirth Pill.
The Rebirth Pill was an extremely overbearing medicinal pill that could allow one’s cultivation to advance by leaps and bounds… The greatness of one’s improvement in cultivation was shocking!
I’ve already broken through to the sixth level of the Void Initiation Stage now… If I’m able to consume the Rebirth Pill, my cultivation is probably able to directly breakthrough to the ninth level of the Void Initiation Stage in a short amount of time!” This was something that Duan Ling Tian didn’t doubt in the slightest.
The medicinal strength of the Rebirth Pill was recorded in detail within the memories of the Rebirth Martial Emperor.
After all, when the medicinal strength of the Rebirth Pill was completely consumed, it was even able to allow the Rebirth Martial Emperor who’d already attained the Martial Emperor Stage all those years ago to directly break through a few levels.
At the Martial Emperor Stage, the difference between every level was undoubtedly like a great chasm.
The Origin Energy of merely a single level in difference would probably surpass the difference between Duan Ling Tian’s current Origin Energy and the Origin Energy of an expert at the first level of the Martial Monarch Stage.
“I understand.” After he obtained Duan Ling Tian’s reply, Zhang Shou Yong nodded and then looked at Zhang Shou Yuan as he said indifferently, “Deal!”
Zhang Shou Yong’s words caused Zhang Shou Yuan to be unable to refrain from heaving a sigh of relief.
Actually, he originally didn’t have any confidence.
Although he knew that Zhang Shou Yong had started to search for the medicinal material in his hand since a few months ago, but he wasn’t sure about how great Zhang Shou Yong’s desire was to obtain this medicinal material.
Now, when he heard Zhang Shou Yong agree, his heart that was at his throat eased up.
He wasn’t worried that Zhang Shou Yong would go back on his word.
After all, there was a group of people that witnessed the trade between him and Zhang Shou Yong, so he wasn’t afraid of Zhang Shou Yong acting shamelessly.
“Here!” With a raise of his hand, the Ageless Root in Zhang Shou Yuan’s hand flew out to flash directly towards Zhang Shou Yong.
He wasn’t the slightest bit unwilling.
Because up until now, he hadn’t discerned what was special about the Ageless Root.
This was just a medicinal material he didn’t recognize that he obtained by luck a long time ago, and he’d always had it casually thrown in a corner of his Spatial Ring.
