Chapter 869: Moonhowl Celestial Wolf
Translator: KurazyTolanzuraytor Editor: JayC
The fierce and savage face of the Skywolf Fort’s Master, Qing Lang, was covered in a helpless and bitter smile.
After taking a deep breath, Qing Lang raised his hands and pressed them downwards.
Instantly, vast flames sprayed out from his palms and swept through the sky above the inner fort in the blink of an eye, and then it formed into a fiery red colored barrier.
This fiery red colored barrier was like an expanse of burning clouds that blocked off the line of sight of the Skywolf Fort elders and disciples in the sky below, causing them to be unable to see what was happening high above in the sky.
At this moment, Qing Lang couldn’t help but sigh with emotion about his wit.
Under the dumbstruck expressions of the five great Vice Fort Masters, the body of the old man in azure clothes expanded as numerous strands of azure colored fur grew out from him.
After a short moment, his azure clothes were torn apart, and the azure clothed old man ceased to exist. Replacing him was a demon wolf that was completely covered in azure colored fur.
The size of the demon wolf remained at the size of an ordinary steed.
When the azure furred wolf appeared, the five great Vice Fort Masters of Skywolf Fort couldn’t help but glance at the badge on their chest. The wolf head on the badged was actually exactly similar to the head of their Fort Master’s true form.
“Looks like the identity badges of our Skywolf Fort was made from the Fort Master’s own true form as the model.” The five Vice Fort Masters thought in their heart.
The demon wolf that was completely covered in azure colored fur stood in midair, and a crescent moon shaped brand was faintly visible between his brows. The brand was a completely green colored, green moon brand.
“Moonhowl Celestial Wolf?!” Mu Xue Yi who’d always been standing silently by Han Xue Nai’s side couldn’t help but exclaim in surprise when she saw Qing Lang’s true form.
The Moonhowl Celestial Wolf was a formidable demon beast, and a Moonhowl Celestial Wolf that possessed a violet moon brand between its brows was even a Saint Beast of that possessed a noble bloodline.
In the Moonhowl Celestial Wolf race, their natural talents were divided into seven levels, and it could be discerned from the color of the crescent moon shaped brands between their brows.
The seven levels of their natural talents corresponded to the seven colors of the rainbow, and they were respectively crimson, orange, yellow, green, azure, blue, violet.
A Moonhowl Celestial Wolf that possessed a crimson moon brand between its brows was an existence with the lowest natural talent in the Moonhowl Celestial Wolf race, and after they reached adulthood, they would at most be barely able to break through to the Void Interpretation Stage.
A Moonhowl Celestial Wolf that possessed an orange moon brand between its brows had a slightly higher natural talent. After reaching adulthood, so long as it cultivated diligently, then it wouldn’t be a problem for it to break through to the ninth level of the Void Interpretation Stage.
A Moonhowl Celestial Wolf that possessed a yellow moon brand between its brows had an even higher natural talent, and it would usually be able to smoothly break through to the Void Transformation Stage.
As for a Moonhowl Celestial Wolf that possessed a green moon brand like the Skywolf Fort’s Fort Master Qing Lang, they would normally be able to break through to the ninth level of the Void Transformation Stage once they cultivated to their limits, and it was extremely difficult for them to break through to the Martial Monarch Stage unless they obtained a fortuitous encounter.
After that were Moonhowl Celestial Wolves that possessed an azure moon brand, blue moon brand, and violet moon brand.
Amongst them, a Moonhowl Celestial Wolf that possessed a violet moon brand was a true Saint Beast.
As for the Moonhowl Celestial Wolves that possessed an azure moon brand and blue moon brand, they were instead considered to be descendants of Saint Beasts, and their natural talents were extremely extraordinary as well.
When she saw Qing Land transform into his true form, Han Xue Nai’s body floated like cotton to firmly descend onto his back, and she mounted him.
“Xue Yi, come!” Subsequently, Han Xue Nai called out to Mu Xue Yi, and the two young women rode on Qing Lang’s back.
“Big dog, let’s go!” Han Xue Nai let out a delicate shout to urge Qing Lang to fly off, and they vanished before the eyes of the five Vice Fort Masters in the blink of an eye.
“I’ll leave the matter of the treasure vault left behind by the Martial Emperor to all of you… So long as I’m able to obtain a Fire Profundity Fragment or Lighting Profundity Fragment, then I’ll be able to step into the Monarch Stage in one go!” At the same time, Qing Lang’s voice transmission entered clearly into the ears of Luo Fu and the others, and it caused them to nod hurriedly.
The Monarch Stage was the Martial Monarch Stage and the Demon Monarch Stage’s common name.
Human martial artists that stepped into the Monarch Stage were Martial Monarch Stage experts, whereas, demon beasts that stepped into the Monarch Stage were Demon Monarch Stage experts.
Qing Lang was a Demon that took human form, and when he advanced a step further, he would attain the Demon Monarch Stage.
“So long as we’re able to obtain a Profundity Fragment needed by the Fort Master from the Martial Emperor’s treasure vault, then the Fort Master will become a Demon Monarch Stage expert! At that time, our Skywolf Fort will rise a level to become a second-rate power in the Foreign Lands!” The five Vice Fort Masters glanced at each other, and all of them could see the excitement in each other’s eyes.
“Right!” Suddenly, Ning Can thought of something and said with slight fear, “We haven’t had the time to tell the Fort Master about Duan Ling Tian… How should we treat him in the future?”
“Duan Ling Tian obviously possesses an extraordinary relationship with Young Miss Xue Nai… Even that Saint Weapon in his possession is likely to have been given to him by Young Miss Xue Nai.” Meng Yi’s eyes flickered with fear.
If they knew since long ago about the relationship between Duan Ling Tian and Han Xue Nai, then they would absolutely not pursue after Duan Ling Tian and seek to seize the Saint Weapon in Duan Ling Tian’s possession.
“Don’t offend Duan Ling Tian in the future!” A trace of fear flashed in Luo Fu’s eyes. “All of you have seen how formidable Young Miss Xue Nai is. Even the Fort Master is probably not a match for her… Moreover, there’s a mysterious and unfathomable enormous power behind her, and coupled with the Fort Master’s Ancestor is her servant. She isn’t someone our Skywolf Fort can afford to offend!”
“Exactly.” Yu Tang nodded with deep agreement.
“I truly never imagined that Duan Ling Tian was capable of becoming related to that Young Miss… Hmph!” Feng Wei took a deep breath. Even though he was unwilling in his heart, yet he knew that he couldn’t afford to offend Han Xue Nai, so he could only grunt in depression.
“Ning Can, since that personal disciple of yours shared the matter of Duan Ling Tian possessing a Saint Weapon with us, I presume he possesses an irreconcilable enmity with Duan Ling Tian… If it’s possible, advise him not to go against Duan Ling Tian anymore so as to avoid implicating our Skywolf Fort!” Meng Li looked at Ning Can as he spoke.
“Okay.” Ning Can nodded.
“No! Don’t tell Zi Shang about this for now.” Luo Fu shook his head, and after he successfully drew the gazes of the other four Vice Fort Masters, he continued. “Presently, we still don’t know the exact enmity between Zi Shang and Duan Ling Tian… If it’s really that type of irreconcilable enmity, then if Junior Brother Ning asks him to give up on it, he would instead feel resentment and even betray our Skywolf Fort.”
“The Martial Emperor’s treasure vault is about to be opened. Zi Shang is the main force of our Skywolf Fort, and no mishap can be allowed to occur.” As he finished speaking, Luo Fu had a solemn expression.
“Master is correct… We’ll let Zi Shang and Duan Ling Tian settle the enmity between them by themselves! Even if he really does anything to Duan Ling Tian and Young Miss Xue Nai comes here looking for him, it wouldn’t be late for us to expel him from the Skywolf Fort.” Feng Wei agreed.
Meng Li, Ning Can, and Yu Tang agreed with Luo Fu’s suggestion.
Zi Shang, who was the person concerned, was kept in the dark at this moment, and he frowned as he looked at the flaming clouds that gradually dispersed in the horizon and the five figures there.
“The Fort Master and those two young women are gone!” said Zi Shang with surprise.
When Zi Shang saw the five Vice Fort Masters high above in the air dispersing successively, he took a deep breath and soared up into the sky to greet Ning Can and bow respectfully. “Master!”
“Is there something you need?” Ning Can smiled lightly as he looked at Zi Shang as he was still extremely satisfied with this personal disciple of his.
“Master, who was that yellow clothed young woman?” Zi Shang asked with a gaze of yearning.
The smile of Ning Can’s face froze completely when he heard Zi Shang mention Han Xue Nai, and then he revealed a fearful expression as he said, “I’m not too sure who she is exactly. I only know that she’s called Young Miss Xue Nai… But her background seemed to be extremely terrifying, and she isn’t someone our Skywolf Fort can afford to offend.”
“Remember, no matter where you encounter her in the future, you must maintain great respect and must not be disrespectful!” As he finished speaking, Ning Can had an extremely serious expression.
“Understood.” Zi Shang nodded as a flowing light spun in his eyes, and a wicked idea arose in his heart. “If I’m able to conquer her and obtain the support of the power behind her, then wouldn’t I be able to move unhindered in the future?”
Needless to say, Zi Shang’s dreams were extremely glorious, yet reality was an entirely different matter.
As the saying goes, dreams are glorious, but reality is brutal. These words weren’t spoken at random.
Time silently passed by.
In the blink of an eye, almost 10 days passed by.
At the Five Element Sect’s Wood Peak’s point of operations, the estate that occupied a vast area.
There was a beautiful figure flashing ceaselessly in the practice ground right at the depths of the estate, and her movements were graceful like a butterfly.
Swish! Swish! Swish! Swish! Swish!
Every time the sword in the beautiful figure’s hand flashed, it would draw out a streak in the sky that looked extremely gorgeous.
Suddenly, the ancient mammoth silhouettes in the sky above the young woman underwent a change and another few tens of ancient mammoth silhouettes appeared out of thin air yet were unstable.
“Force Seed?” The eyes of Duan Ling Tian who stood at the side of the practice ground lit up abruptly, and he was slightly surprised.
The beautiful figure in the practice grounds struck out successively with a few more sword strikes before stopping, and then she put away her sword and moved towards Duan Ling Tian.
“Big Brother Duan, I seemed to have a slightly different feeling when I cultivated my sword skill earlier… Moreover, its might seemed to have become even greater. What was that?” It was precisely Ye Xuan, the daughter of the Driftcloud Town’s Ye Clan’s Patriarch, that had arrived by Duan Ling Tian’s side.
“Silly girl, that’s a Force seed… More precisely speaking, it was a Sword Force Seed. With this Sword Force Seed’s presence, you’ll be able to quickly comprehend Sword Force once you step into the Void Prying Stage.” Duan Ling Tian smiled.
“That’s Sword Force?” Ye Xuan’s eyes lit up. As the Young Miss of the Driftcloud Town’s Ye Clan, she naturally knew what Force was, but she just never imagined that she would be able to comprehend it so quickly.
“I’m able to help you improve your constitution and natural talent, yet I’m unable to help you with your comprehension ability… So I was still worried earlier. But not it would seem like I’ve worried for nothing, and your comprehension ability has already exceeded my expectations.” Duan Ling Tian smiled.
“Duan Ling Tian!” Suddenly, a sonorous voice sounded out, and it caused Duan Ling Tian and Ye Xuan to look over in unison.
