Chapter 881: Origin Spirit Fruit
Translator: EndlessFantasy Translation Editor: EndlessFantasy Translation
The young man was cloaked in a fiery red robe, and he had a handsome yet devilish face. His pair of eyes were dark and deep, and it contained an infinite amount of charm.
He emerged out of thin air like a ghost. Just a sentence was enough to make the three Fire Peak disciples’ faces become discolored as if they were facing their archenemy.
“Senior B-Brother Hu… H-Hu Fei.” One of the Fire Peak disciples had a look of absolute horror on his face. It looked like it was indeed true that nobody should badmouth another person behind their back.. Just a moment ago, he was still criticizing Hu Fei on how he was an out-and-out ungrateful bastard. In the next moment, Hu Fei himself had suddenly appeared before him.
“S-Senior Brother Hu Fei.” The other two Fire Peak disciples were both in a rather nervous state with their heads lowered. They did not dare to look Hu Fei in the eyes at all.
“Hurmph!” Hu Fei snorted coldly. A cold gleam flashed across that pair of deep eyes. He took a step forward without any warning.
All of a sudden, a vast Origin Energy swept across the sky. Halfway through it, it transformed into a huge flame that blotted out the entire sky. It resembled a fiery beast as it charged towards the three Fire Peak disciples.
“Senior Brother Hu Fei! Spare our lives please!”
It had never crossed the three Fire Peak disciples’ minds that Hu Fei would actually take action against them just because of a few honest words that they had said behind his back while they were objectively discussing him.
The three of them were completely filled with despair, they did not even get the chance to flee when they faced Hu Fei. In just a blink of an eye, they were all consumed by the flame that turned into a huge monster. They were all reduced to ashes, completely vanishing from this world.
Not far away, a few other Fire Peak disciples who happened to pass by saw this scene right at that moment. Horror immediately dawned on them.
“Oh?” Within seconds, Hu Fei noticed the few Fire Peak disciples. His brows were gently knitted together, and a chilling and killing aura could be seen in his eyes.
“S-Senior Brother Hu Fei!”
“Senior B-Brother Hu Fei, w-we didn’t see anything,” The Fire Peak disciples stuttered in haste, they were afraid of being murdered by Hu Fei.
“Take an oath!” Hu Fei glared at them fiendishly, and his voice was as cold as ice.
Upon hearing this, the Fire Peak disciples let out a sigh of relief.
At the same time, they pinched their fingers until blood appeared. Droplets of fresh blood instantly rose up to the sky.
In the next instance, each and every one of them made a vow on their lives. The vow was something like this: they would never tell anyone about the thing that they saw today. Otherwise, they would be punished severely.
A series of thunder instantly reverberated in the sky. That was the response from the Oath Tribulation — Nine-Nine Heavenly Tribulation for the vow they had just made.
Hu Fei was the direct disciple of the Peak Master of the Fire Peak.
Even supposing the Peak Master of the Fire Peak found out that he had murdered somebody on Fire Peak, he still would not take any action against him.
However, the problem lay with the fact that Fire Peak was one of the Five Peaks in the Five Element Sect. There was still one person who had a higher position than the Peak Master of the Fire Peak, and that was the Peak Master of the Gold Peak. Otherwise also known as the Sect Leader of the Five Element Sect.
If today’s incident only spread around in Fire Peak, then nothing would happen to Hu Fei.
However, once the story was spread out to the public, even his master, the Peak Master of Fire Peak, would not be able to protect him.
The Five Element Sect had a rule: all disciples of the Five Element Sect were not allowed to cripple or murder each other at will.
Otherwise, they would be punished regardless of they were.
“Hurmph!” Hu Fei snorted as he looked at the few Fire Peak disciples who was making the Nine-Nine Heavenly Tribulation oath. He then immediately vanished without a trace, disappearing from their sight.
After Hu Fei had left, the few Fire Peak disciples took in a long and deep breath as they exchanged glances with each other. All of them could see the joy in each other’s eyes.
They rejoiced over the fact that they could still live to see another day.
Three young men were gathered, and they were chatting with one another on the balcony at the top floor of a three-story pavilion.
“… For this reason, Elder Yang crippled his own arm and left the sect before going to Settlement City. I guess it’s also a silent escape for him,” Chen Wei sighed.
At this moment, he was answering Duan Ling Tian and Huang Daniu’s queries.
After Duan Ling Tian and Huang Daniu both found out that Yang Ling was Wood Peak’s second strongest powerhouse, they were both extremely surprised and intrigued by Yang Ling’s severed arm.
They had finally found their answers in Chen Wei’s words.
To their surprise, Yang Ling’s severed arm was actually cut off by himself.
The reason was because the person whom he had treated as his own son betrayed him and became the direct disciple of the Fire Peak Peak Master.
“Hu Fei!” Duan Ling Tian and Huang Daniu’s faces darkened instantly.
Although they were not a friend or relative of Yang Ling, putting aside the matter of avenging him, they could not suppress the sense of wrath that surged through their hearts the moment they found out about the dispute between him and Hu Fei.
Yang Ling was the person who saved Hu Fei’s life.
Yang Ling was the person who taught Hu Fei his entire cultivation.
However, he looked down on Wood Peak that was unable to recover after its setback, and coupled with the fact that he could not resist the temptation from the Peak Master of Fire Peak, he betrayed his own master who had raised him into who he was today and subsequently betrayed the Wood Peak as well.
“During the Battle of the Five Peaks… If I come across him, I’ll definitely teach him a lesson!” Huang Daniu bellowed while he waved his fist around. What he hated the most in this life was an ungrateful and treacherous disciple.
Although Hu Fei and Yang Ling’s matter did not concern him in the least, he still frowned upon Hu Fei’s actions, so much so that he totally abhorred it.
In Huang Daniu’s own words, “You’re like an eyesore to me. I, Big Brother Daniu, just want to beat the hell out of you, so what?”
Although Duan Ling Tian did not say anything, the chilliness in his eyes undoubtedly showed that he was having more or less the same thoughts as Huang Daniu.
Hu Fei had crossed his bottom line as well.
“Daniu, don’t underestimate that Hu Fei! I heard that he’s now at the Sixth Level Void Interpretation and has already comprehended the Seventh Level Intermediate Fire Concept! It’s exactly because he’s gifted with an innate talent that the Peak Master of Fire Peak Peak is willing to snatch him away from Elder Yang at all cost,” Chen Wei chimed in with a solemn look on his face.
If it was not for the great cost that the Peak Master of Fire Peak had paid, how could Hu Fei who had been following Elder Yang since he was a child possibly betray him all of a sudden?
“Hurmph! I don’t fear him at all if he doesn’t use any spirit weapon and battle it out on the ground with me!” Huang Daniu snorted.
Although he was only at the Fifth Level Void Interpretation, he had already comprehended the Earth Concept Fragment. Once this technique was unleashed on the ground, he could borrow the Earth Energy that was equivalent to thirty ancient horned dragons’ energy.
If he unleashed his full power, he would be as strong as 160 ancient horned dragons!
If Hu Fei also did not use his spirit weapon and unleashed his full potential, his power would not be as great as the 160 ancient horned dragons!
For this reason, Huang Daniu dared to voice out his claims.
However, although these words actually came out from his mouth, his heart actually did not share the same thoughts.
This point could clearly be seen from the dread that filled his eyes.
“The Battle of the Five Peaks is about to take place, I should go back and cultivate as well… Please practice hard during this period of time alright? Although the two of you have quite powerful strength, there are still many young disciples in the other four Peaks who are much stronger than me,” Chen Wei told Duan Ling Tian and Huang Daniu with a solemn look.
Both of them nodded their heads.
After Chen Wei left, Duan Ling Tian and Huang Daniu separated and returned to their own room to cultivate.
After returning to his own room, Duan Ling Tian sat cross-legged on the bed.
One of his hand held the Wind Concept Fragments, and the other hand held the Thunder Concept Fragment as he comprehended two completely different Concepts while cultivating at the same time.
Nine Dragons War Sovereign Technique! Sword Dragon Form!
If the Ninth Level Void Transformation powerhouses found out that Duan Ling Tian could comprehend two completely different Concepts at the same time by using two completely different Concept Fragments, they would most likely be so jealous that they would spit out blood.
What the Ninth Level Void Transformation powerhouses were pursuing was not to comprehend a Concept to the Ninth Level Advanced Concept but to actually comprehend two different Concepts to the Ninth Level Advanced Concept.
Only then, they could be considered as touching the threshold of the Martial Monarch Stage.
Otherwise, they would never be able to step into the Martial Monarch Stage and become a Martial Monarch powerhouse in their entire lives.
Duan Ling Tian’s case was something that every Ninth Level Void Transformation powerhouses dreamt of. Being able to comprehend two different Concepts at the same time also meant that he could partially step into the Martial Monarch Stage in the shortest time possible.
Compared to other ordinary martial artists, it was much easier for Duan Ling Tian to make a breakthrough to the Martial Monarch Stage.
With the same comprehension and the same conditions, Duan Ling Tian could easily comprehend four different Ninth Level Advanced Concepts within the same amount of time an ordinary Ninth Level Void Transformation powerhouse used to comprehend two Ninth Level Advanced Concepts.
Almost 100% of the Ninth Level Void Transformation powerhouses that simultaneously comprehended four types of Ninth Level Advanced Concepts on the Cloud Continent could make a breakthrough to the Martial Monarch Stage and become a powerful Martial Monarch powerhouse.
Time continued to pass by without a sound.
The overbearing Rebirth Pill continued to converge with Duan Ling Tian’s Origin Energy as it worked in accordance with the Nine Dragons War Sovereign Technique’s Sword Dragon Form mental cultivation method, and it enhanced his Origin Energy swiftly.
Nobody knew how long it took but when Duan Ling Tian reached the bottleneck of the Sixth Level Void Interpretation from the Fifth Level Void Interpretation, he was completely overjoyed.
The appearance of this bottleneck also meant that he was now one step closer to reaching the Sixth Level Void Interpretation.
He was looking forward to reaching the Sixth Level Void Interpretation.
This was because he was very eager to verify one thing.
He wanted to know if his Spiritual Energy would be elevated to the Seventh Level Void Interpretation or if it would remain the same and synchronize with his cultivation base once his cultivation base made a breakthrough to the Sixth Level Void Interpretation.
“If it’s the latter… then I guess the after-effect left on my body from the devilification of that Devilseal Tablet was really too exaggerated.”
Although Duan Ling Tian was mentally prepared to meet the worst outcome, he could not help but feel a little nervous about it.
He hoped that his Spiritual Energy would be subsequently elevated as well.
Otherwise, his Soul Skill Thousand Illusions’s effects would be greatly reduced, it was even close to being useless.
“Duan Ling Tian!”
After a while, Duan Ling Tian who was continuing his cultivation suddenly heard a voice calling out his name from outside
That voice sounded old yet familiar. Duan Ling Tian stopped his cultivation and opened his eyes. When he began to regain his consciousness, he finally recognized the owner of the voice outside.
Duan Ling Tian opened the door and smiled as he looked at the one-handed old man standing outside of the door — Wood Peak’s second strongest powerhouse, Yang Ling.
A faint smile could be seen on Yang Ling’s face. He appeared to have a benign look on his face.
Could it be that the Battle of the Five Peaks was about to start now?
When Duan Ling Tian saw Yang Ling, his heart tightened as he made conjectures in his heart.
In the next second, he immediately knew that he had thought too much.
“Duan Ling Tian, the Peak Master asked me to pass this Origin Enhancing Fruit to you… With your innate talent, I’m sure you’ll be able to absorb its medicinal power and enhance your cultivation base before the Battle of the Five Peaks takes place!” Yang Ling spoke while taking out a piece of spirit fruit.
