Translator: EndlessFantasy Translation Editor: EndlessFantasy Translation
“Big Brother Duan.”
Feng Tian Wu’s pretty face blushed involuntarily when she looked at the purple-clad young man whom she had missed dearly and dreamt of. Her face was so red it was as if blood would drip out from it.
Feng Tian Wu’s captivating and beautiful face revealed a hint of shyness, it made the people who saw it could not help but want to hold her in their arms and pamper her.
“Tian Wu.” Duan Ling Tian smiled and locked eyes with the red-clad girl, his eyes were filled with deep affection.
He was not certain of his feelings when he faced Feng Tian Wu. There was no awkwardness that was present in the past, and they seemed to be closer now, but in comparison to the feelings between a couple, it was not there yet.
However, whenever he thought of the time when they had just entered the Martial Emperor’s secret treasure, and how Feng Tian Wu followed after him and Zi Shang disregarding her own safety when they fell into the bottomless abyss, his heart could not help but feel moved.
His heart was not made of steel or stones. Naturally, he would be moved by Feng Tian Wu’s sacrifice.
Feng Tian Wu’s status in his heart certainly had an earthshaking change after that incident. It was just missing the last step of putting a name to it before their hearts could completely be one.
“En?” Duan Ling Tian’s Spiritual Energy extended naturally to Feng Tian Wu’s body, he was startled when he realized something.
Feng Tian Wu’s cultivation had progressed to the Fourth Level Void Interpretation.
Although she had improved compared to her previous state at the Third Level Void Interpretation, it was insufficient to startle him.
What shocked him was the wave of burning aura from Feng Tian Wu’s body. The burning aura was hidden in Feng Tian Wu’s body, and it seemed ready to come out with just a command as though it was ready to burn his Spiritual Energy.
“What happened?” Duan Ling Tian’s face immediately turned grave as he retracted his Spiritual Energy. The feeling he had gotten from Feng Tian Wu was as though a dreaded Flaming Demon beast was sleeping in her body.
Once that Flaming Demon beast woke up, Feng Tian Wu would surely die!
Duan Ling Tian was certain about this.
‘Is it the Fire Spirit Body’s power?’ Very quickly, Duan Ling Tian vaguely made a guess. It seemed to be the only reason.
‘But Tian Wu is only almost twenty-six years old… There are still four more years before the Fire Spirit Body’s power will be activated.’ Duan Ling Tian was confused.
‘I think Tian Wu must have encountered something in the Martial Emperor’s secret treasure that caused the Fire Spirit Body’s power in her to be unstable.’ Duan Ling Tian became more and more solemn as his train of thoughts grew longer.
‘What a beautiful woman!’ Feng Tian Wu’s appearance caught the attention of Peng Bao, Zuo Yue, and the two young men in the distance.
At this moment, their gazes at Feng Tian Wu revealed their fascination.
They had seen a lot of beautiful women. However, it was their first time seeing one with such a temperament. They could not help but feel moved by her.
“Brother Ling Tian, you’re really fortunate!” Even Peng Bao was in awe of Feng Tian Wu’s beauty. He noticed Feng Tian Wu’s gaze toward Duan Ling Tian was filled with love and admiration.
When he witnessed the scene, he was envious but also happy for Duan Ling Tian.
Although he had just met Duan Ling Tian, they had become true friends because of their similar temperament.
“Heng!” Zuo Yue scoffed, there was a hint of jealousy in his stern gaze toward Duan Ling Tian.
After he found out about Duan Ling Tian’s identity, his first thought was to kill him and snatch the Profundity Fragment in his hands.
However, he gave up on that idea then because there were two other people present who was equally as popular as him in the northern desert.
He knew that if he attacked Duan Ling Tian, it would attract both of their attention, and they would surely join in the fight.
If that happened, it was very likely that he would end up with nothing.
Just as Duan Ling Tian was about to ask Feng Tian Wu about what happened to her Fire Spirit Body in the Martial Emperor’s secret treasure, a loud voice came from afar and broke the silence.
“Duan Ling Tian, you’re indeed alive.”
Under everyone’s watchful eyes, a bald young man dressed in a kasaya flew out from an entrance on one side of the huge cave. He was extremely fast. In just a blink of an eye, he was standing in mid-air close to Duan Ling Tian.
“Xuan Bei!” Duan Ling Tian raised his eyebrow and smiled faintly when he saw the young monk before him. “Of course I’m alive and well since we haven’t fulfilled the agreement we have.”
Xuan Bei, the strongest person among the younger generation of Empyrean Temple’s disciples, was the young monk who made a pact with Duan Ling Tian at Skywolf Fort.
“How do you feel about fulfilling the agreement we have now?” Xuan Bei narrowed his eyes and slowly said with a smile on his face the entire time, “I’m very interested in the Profundity Fragment in your hands.”
Zuo Yue, whose expression was already grim when he heard Xuan Bei calling out Duan Ling Tian’s name, became gloomier when Xuan Bei finished his sentence.
Earlier, when Xuan Bei called out to Duan Ling Tian, he noticed the two other people from Izumo Sect and North Nether Sect respectively, who were equally as popular as him, instantly focused their gazes on Duan Ling Tian.
However, they did not react at all even after a while.
Then, as Xuan Bei carelessly said the word ‘Profundity Fragment’, he could clearly see realization dawning on their faces as their gazes brightened suddenly.
‘Oh no!’ Zuo Yue’s heart sank. What he least hoped would happen had happened.
Just as Xuan Bei finished his sentence, both of the young men in the distance finally reacted.
Their robes fluttered, and they vanished into thin air in the very next moment. When they reappeared, they were near Duan Ling Tian. They stared intently at him.
At this moment, their eyes gleamed as they stared at Duan Ling Tian. They did not look like they were sizing up a person, they looked more like they were inspecting a precious treasure.
“You’re Duan Ling Tian?”
“That disciple from the third-rate force who obtained a Profundity Fragment?”
Both of them stared at Duan Ling Tian and spoke almost simultaneously with a questioning tone.
Originally, Feng Tian Wu was quietly looking into the eyes of her sweetheart, feeling blessed at that moment. The two voices that sounded like the cawing of crows shattered the moment of peace and caused her face to change.
When Feng Tian Wu was about to react, a gentle Voice Transmission entered her ears and calmed her down.
“Tian Wu, did you encounter anything in the Martial Emperor’s secret treasure? Why do I feel like the Fire Spirit Body’s power in you isn’t as calm as it used to be?” A gentle voice filled with concern managed to completely calm Feng Tian Wu’s emotions. She blushed even harder, it was as if blood would drip from her face.
The feeling of being cared for was nice. Not to mention being cared for by one’s sweetheart.
“En.” Feng Tian Wu nodded and instantly responded via Voice Transmission, “Not too long ago, I obtained a Ninth Level Monarch Stage Fire Profundity Fragment…”
Duan Ling Tian’s eyes narrowed instantly when Feng Tian Wu finished her sentence.
The outer ring of the Martial Emperor’s secret treasure had five Monarch Stage Profundity Fragments. Previously, he was curious, apart from the three that he possessed, who had obtained the two other fragments?
Now he knew one of it was with Tian Wu.
‘And it’s a Ninth Level Monarch Stage Fire Profundity Fragment!’ Duan Ling Tian was really shocked.
It should be noted that the best one among the three Monarch Stage Profundity Fragments that he possessed was merely an Eighth Level Monarch Stage Profundity Fragment. It was incomparable to a Ninth Level Monarch Stage Profundity Fragment.
“When I held it in my hands, it left my palms and entered my body after turning into liquid…” Feng Tian Wu’s voice continued to be transmitted. Duan Ling Tian suppressed his shock and continued listening carefully to Feng Tian Wu’s detailed experience in the Martial Emperor’s secret treasure.
It was Feng Tian Wu’s biggest secret.
However, in front of Duan Ling Tian, Feng Tian Wu divulged everything without reservation.
Duan Ling Tian’s face turned more and more grave as Feng Tian Wu’s story progressed.
‘Tian Wu… is able to comprehend the First Level Monarch Stage Fire Profundity Fragment?’ Duan Ling Tian’s heart skipped a beat.
As a normal martial artist, being able to comprehend the First Level Monarch Stage Fire Profundity Fragment might be a good thing. However, that was not the case for Feng Tian Wu, the owner of a Fire Spirit Body.
‘If it’s a normal martial artist, such an unusual change from using the Ninth Level Monarch Stage Fire Profundity Fragment is impossible. Tian Wu’s Fire Spirit Body must be the cause of the Profundity Fragment’s unusual change.’
Duan Ling Tian was almost certain about this.
“I don’t know if there’s a similar incident in the Rebirth Martial Emperor’s memory…’ Duan Ling Tian was stunned due to his concern, and he anxiously searched the Rebirth Martial Emperor’s memory from both lives and tried to get answers from it.
He had a feeling the changes in the Concept Fragment in Tian Wu’s body, and her ability to comprehend the First Level Monarch Stage Fire Profundity Fragment was not beneficial to her.
Duan Ling Tian and Feng Tian Wu were communicating through Voice Transmission, and they stood there quietly and completely ignored the questions from the two people from Izumo Sect and North Nether Sect.
The faces of the tall and strong young man from Izumo Sect and the green-clad young man from North Nether Sect instantly darkened.
“Haha…Lei Zhong, Xu Qing, they totally ignored the both of you.”
At this moment, Zuo Yue laughed uncontrollably as he looked at his old rivals with derision.
Lei Zhong, the strongest person among the younger generation of Izumo Sect, was the direct disciple of the only Martial Monarch powerhouse in Izumo Sect.
On the other hand, Xu Qing, the strongest person among the younger generation of North Nether Sect, was a direct disciple of the Sect Leader of North Nether Sect.
