Translator: KurazyTolanzuraytor Editor: Jay
Zi Shang wasn’t worried that the Imperial Family would expose his lies after they seize the incomplete Devilseal Tablet from Duan Ling Tian.
Of course, even though he’d held back on something, everything he did wasn’t a lie.
“Your Majesty, Master, this is what I wanted to tell the both of you today… If our Imperial Family is able to obtain this Saint Weapon, then it’s entirely beneficial and completely harmless to our Imperial Family.” As he finished speaking, Zi Shang was slightly excited.
“Zi Shang, you’ve said so much… Yet it wouldn’t be because you’re not resigned to your loss to Duan Ling Tian today and want to use the Imperial Family to deal with Duan Ling Tian, right?” Suddenly, the Emperor calmed down and his wise eyes stared at Zi Shang as he spoke slowly.
“Zi Shang doesn’t dare.” Zi Shang hurriedly shook his head, and then he added. “If Your Majesty doesn’t believe what I said earlier, then I’m willing to take an Oath of Tribulation…”
As he spoke, and before the Emperor and his mater recovered from their shock, he’d already pinched open his finger and caused a drop of fresh blood to charge into the sky before vowing in a clear voice. “I, Zi Shang, vow under the Nine-Nine Heavenly Tribulation that if the broken stone tablet in Duan Ling Tian’s possession isn’t a Saint Weapon and doesn’t possess an amplification of 100%, then I, Zi Shang, am willing to be blasted to death by the Nine-Nine Heavenly Tribulation!”
Subsequently, nine thunderclaps resounded out in the sky above the Imperial palace, and it shocked most of the people with the Imperial Palace.
Even the people in the area nearby the Imperial Palace heard these nine resounding thunderclaps.
For a time, the corner of the Capital that the Imperial Palace was located at was in a complete uproar.
“So many thunderclaps have resounded out, could it be that it’s going to rain? Kid, quickly help mother bring in the clothes that are drying outside.”
These were voices that sounded out from a slum behind a remote alley nearby the Imperial Palace, and it belonged to a widow and her son.
They were people that occupied the lowest levels of the Darkhan Dynasty, and were only ordinary people that didn’t know what those nine resounding thunderclaps meant.
“It’s the Nine-Nine Heavenly Tribulation… Looks like someone in the Imperial Palace has taken an oath under the Nine-Nine Heavenly Tribulation, yet I wonder who it is.” Many martial artists guessed the meaning these nine resounding thunderclaps meant.
Not long after, the news of someone in the Imperial Palace taking an oath under the Nine-Nine Heavenly Tribulation spread throughout the entire Capital and became known to all.
The Nine-Nine Heavenly Tribulation was an Oath Tribulation, and once a person made an oath under it, no one could go against it.
Otherwise, that person would be blasted to death by the heavenly tribulation!
Within the Audience Hall.
When they saw that after Zi Shang took an oath under the heavenly tribulation, yet the heavenly tribulation didn’t take further action, nor had any intention of punishing Zi Shang, the Emperor and the black clothed old man completely believed Zi Shang.
“Zi Shang, you return first. Don’t tell another person about this matter… including your sister.” The old man looked at Zi Shang and spoke with a solemn expression.
“Don’t worry Master, I know what I should say and what I shouldn’t.” Zi Shang pledged sincerely and nodded before turning and leaving the Audience Hall.
When he turned around, a smile of being successful in his scheme appeared on Zi Shang’s face, and his eyes revealed a cold light that seemed to be waiting to swallow his enemies up.
“You’ve done well.” He’d only just walked out of the Audience Hall when a ghastly and aged voice started resounding within his mind.
“Thank you for the praise, Elder Ghost.” Zi Shang hurriedly replied and didn’t dare be disrespectful in the slightest.
“I was able to discern that your master and that Darkhan Dynasty’s Emperor have already aroused greed towards the incomplete Devilseal Tablet in Duan Ling Tian’s possession… It won’t be long before they’ll make a move.” Ghost Flame continued.
“Unfortunately, Duan Ling Tian can’t die at my hand… It’s rather regretful.” Zi Shang sighed.
“Hmph!” Ghost Flame said with disdain, “Even though Duan Ling Tian’s natural talent and comprehension ability isn’t bad… There are many people in the outside world that possess great natural talent and stronger comprehension ability than him.”
“Once you walk out of this little countryside in the future, you’ll know how huge the outside world is… Before some genius experts in the outside world, Duan Ling Tian is utterly nothing.” Ghost Flame spoke slowly. “When you recall this moment at that time, you’ll really see how laughable you are at this moment.”
“I understand.” Zi Shang nodded, and the regret on his face vanished.
Duan Ling Tian naturally didn’t know of the plot the Imperial Family was planning against him, and he was currently already sound asleep in the land of dreams.
He was about to leave the Darkhan Dynasty and return to the Azure Forest Imperial Kingdom tomorrow, and his feelings surged extremely and was utterly unable to calm down to cultivate or comprehend Concept.
Duan Ling Tian slept all the way until the sky lit up before awakening.
After he woke up, Duan Ling Tian subconsciously took out the Devilseal Tablet. “I had a dream last night. In the dream, the Devilseal Tablet could be used as a spirit weapon… As the saying goes, what you think about in the day, you will dream of at night. I wonder if my dreams can come true.”
When he thought up to here, Duan Ling Tian didn’t hesitate to directly fuse his Origin Energy into the Devilseal Tablet.
Right at this moment, 12 ancient horned dragon silhouettes coiled down from the sky above Duan Ling Tian with an imposing manner that shot into the sky like a rainbow.
Along with the Devilseal Tablet being enveloped by a layer of Origin Energy, Duan Ling Tian noticed that another 12 ancient horned dragon silhouettes had appeared by the side of the existing 12 ancient horned dragon silhouettes.
“This…” Duan Ling Tian was dumbstruck when he saw this scene.
His current actions were just a spur of the moment, and even though he’d dreamed about it yesterday, the dream only told him that the Devilseal Tablet could be used as a spirit weapon.
It didn’t say that when the Devilseal Tablet was utilized as a spirit weapon, it was capable of providing an amplification of 100%!
An amplification of an entire 100%…
This seems so be only capable of being achieved by the Quasi Royal Grade Spirit Weapons refined by the Rebirth Martial Emperor all those years ago, right?
Duan Ling Tian possessed a Quasi Royal Grade spirit weapon in his possession, and it was the sword that belonged to the white clothed Sword Monarch that he obtained in the Sword Monarch’s Treasure.
That was a Quasi Royal Grade spirit sword, and it was capable of providing an amplification of an entire 100%, yet now, Duan Ling Tian was completely dumbstruck when he noticed the Devilseal Tablet in his possession possessed the capability of providing an amplification of 100%.
After a short while, he recovered from his shock.
“Looks like this Devilseal Tablet isn’t simple…” Under his curiosity, Duan Ling Tian continued to study the Devilseal Tablet, yet he didn’t notice anything else after studying it for some time.
“Big Brother Duan.” After an unknown period of time, Feng Tian Wu’s voice sounded out from outside his room, and only now did Duan Ling Tian put away the Devilseal Tablet and wash up before changing into a pair of new clothes and walking out of his room.
“Tian Wu, good morning.” After he walked out of his room, Duan Ling Tian bathed under the gentle morning sunlight as he lightly smiled and greeted Feng Tian Wu who stood outside the courtyard.
“Big Brother Duan, let’s go have breakfast together… We’ll leave after we have breakfast,” said Feng Tian Wu to Duan Ling Tian.
“Okay.” Duan Ling Tian nodded.
After finishing his breakfast, Duan Ling Tian notified Feng Wu Dao, Feng Tian Wu, and Elder Kong before making a trip to the Darkstone Estate the members of the Darkstone Empire were staying at.
He came over this time mainly to bid his farewells to Su Li and King Yong.
After he bid his farewells to King Yong, Duan Ling Tian found Su Li. “Su Li, I intend to make a trip to the Azure Forest Imperial Kingdom and to the Crimson Sky Kingdom… Do you want to follow me?”
Duan Ling Tian had actually only thought to ask this at the last minute.
The Crimson Sky Kingdom wasn’t only his hometown, but it was also Su Li’s hometown.
Duan Ling Tian originally thought that Su Li would agree, because according to his knowledge, Su Li hadn’t returned to the Crimson Sky Kingdom for many years, not to mention catching up with those few good friends from the past.
But Su Li had refused instead. “Duan Ling Tian, I’m not going back for now. I’m going to look for my Master in another two days, and I will probably be going to wander about the other Dynasties for a period of time.”
“Su Li, I presume that when we meet the next time, your strength will surely shock me greatly.” Duan Ling Tian laughed.
As far as he was concerned, it was surely Su Li’s master that intended to allow Su Li to increase his strength a step further before the Martial Competition of the Ten Dynasties arrives, and this aroused his intention to bring Su Li around to wander the other Dynasties.
With Su Li’s current cultivation, not to mention competing with the top young geniuses of the various Dynasties, there were even many people in the Darkhan Dynasty that could defeat him.
“I’m afraid that when we meet the next time, your strength will be even more shocking.” Su Li sighed.
In the past, along with the numerous times his strength advanced by leaps and bounds, he felt that he ought to be able to surpass Duan Ling Tian.
But when he saw Duan Ling Tian once more and witnessed the strength Duan Ling Tian revealed, he instead felt a wave of powerlessness that came from the bottom of his heart.
It seemed as if there was an insurmountable chasm between him and Duan Ling Tian, and no matter how much effort he put in, he was unable to surmount that chasm to catch up to Duan Ling Tian in the end.
But he didn’t feel frustrated because of this, and it instead caused him to burn with the will to fight.
He would surely work hard to chase up and even surpass Duan Ling Tian’s footsteps before the Martial Competition of the Ten Dynasties started a year from now!
This was his goal for the coming year.
“After you return, send my regards to Tian Hu, Xiao Yu, and the others,” said Su Li to Duan Ling Tian.
“Of course.” Duan Ling Tian nodded.
Right when Duan Ling Tian intended to leave, King Yong called out to Duan Ling Tian. “Duan Ling Tian, I almost forgot to tell you… Vice Guild Master Xiang asked me to tell you that if you’re free in the future, you can go catch up with him in the Milky Way City’s Treasure Gathering Pavilion.”
“Okay.” Duan Ling Tian replied and nodded with a smile to King Yong before leaving the Darkstone Estate.
In the sky above the Darkhan Dynasty’s Capital.
An enormous sword swept through the sky with an extremely swift speed that was difficult for an ordinary person’s eyes to catch.
If one were to look carefully, one could notice that this sword wasn’t a material sword, and it was instead condensed into form from Origin Energy, Obviously, someone had intentionally condensed it from his own Origin Energy to be a mode of transport.
After a short moment, the enormous sword left the sky of the Capital.
On the enormous sword was a layer of a faint Origin Energy barrier that enveloped the entire enormous sword, and it blocked out the strong winds that assaulted them from ahead.
The body of the enormous sword was extremely wide and was capable of accommodating a few tens of people, yet only four people were standing on it.
“This speed is much faster than the Three-Eyed Flame Tiger.” Duan Ling Tian thought in his heart as he looked at his surroundings.
The other three people were precisely Feng Wu Dao, Feng Tian Wu, and Elder Kong.
Presently, the four of them were heading towards the Azure Forest Imperial Kingdom.
The enormous sword beneath their feet was condensed into form from Feng Wu Dao’s Origin Energy, and its flying speed was so swift that it was comparable to a formidable demon beast at the Void Interpretation Stage.
Compared to the Three-Eyed Flame Tiger, it was a many times swifter.
