Chapter 255: Black Bamboo City
Translator: KurazyTolanzuraytor Editor: Lucas
Duan Ling Tian and the two little girls couldn't help but start laughing when they saw the actions of the little gold mouse.
The eyes of the two little pythons went cold, and they transformed into two bolts of lightning that flew out, opening their mouths to bite at the little gold mouse.
800 ancient mammoth silhouettes appeared above each of them.
"Little Black, Little White, don't!" Ke Er exclaimed in surprise. She wanted to stop them, but it was already too late.
"Squeak squeak~" The little gold mouse wasn't afraid in the slightest when facing the two little pythons, and it raised its claws to slap out towards them.
1,000 ancient mammoth silhouettes condensed into form above it.
The two little pythons were successively slapped down by the little gold mouse's claws.
Although the little pythons weren't a match for the little gold mouse, it didn't dare attack with a killing blow, as it noticed the gaze of warning that Duan Ling Tian shot at it.
"Hiss hiss~" The two little pythons felt pain, but they were still unwilling and continued to confront the little gold mouse.
"Little Black, Little White, come back." Duan Ling Tian shook his head and laughed. He never thought that these two little fellows were so aggressive. He didn't even react until after they had fought with the little gold mouse.
The two little pythons returned onto Duan Ling Tian's hand, but their eyes still stared fixedly at the little gold mouse.
The little gold mouse was unwilling to lag behind. It twisted its ass around and swayed its ass at the two little pythons in provocation.
"That's about enough." Noticing the mood of the two little pythons becoming restless and slightly losing control, Duan Ling Tian looked at the little gold mouse and frowned.
The little gold mouse seemed to be slightly afraid of Duan Ling Tian, and it obediently lied down.
"Alright, you two little fellows will surpass it sooner or later....You two are younger than it by more than a year. After a year, you two will surely be stronger than it is now." Duan Ling Tian noticed that the two little pythons were still unwilling to return into his sleeve, so he comforted them.
Of course, he wasn't talking nonsense when he said this.
Based on his observations of the two little pythons for almost three years, their potential was absolutely not inferior to the Jade-eyed Heavenly Mouse, and when they matured in the future, they might become existences comparable to Demon Emperors.
The two little pythons were both variant fierce beasts, and there weren't any records of the two little pythons within the memories of Rebirth Martial Emperor.
But based on their recent growth rate, they'd long since surpassed the growth rate of most demon beasts.
"Hiss hiss~" Hearing Duan Ling Tian's comforting words, the two little pythons obediently returned to his sleeve.
This caused the two little girls to laugh helplessly as well.
The two little pythons and the little gold mouse simply seemed as if they were born to be enemies.
"That Xia Guang really let me gain a lot this time." Duan Ling Tian withdrew the three Spatial Rings. They were precisely the Spatial Rings of Xia Guang and the two old men. There wasn't much within the Spatial Rings of the two old men, but there was a large amount of wealth within the Spatial Ring of Xia Guang.
The Origin Strengthening Pill that he'd refined had returned to his possession, and the Light Edge Inscription that was inscribed on a ring was there too.
He left all these at that because they were worthless to him.
Most importantly, there was an entire 20 million gold in Xia Guang's Spatial Ring!
Now the combined wealth in Duan Ling Tian's possession had already come close to 50 million gold....
Hurrying on their journey at a gallop, after two months' time, Duan Ling Tian's group finally arrived at a city near the Seven Star Sword Sect.
This city had an area that wasn't inferior in size to Black Wind City.
Duan Ling Tian found out the name of this city by looking at the three words above the city's gate....
Black Bamboo City!
At the beginning, Duan Ling Tian still found it difficult to understand why a city would have such a poetic name. And only after he entered the city and saw the black bamboos that were jet-black like ink that rose up from the ground that he came to a sudden understanding.
So this was the origin of the name "Black Bamboo City."
Along the way, Duan Ling Tian saw some people who wore a uniform, green-colored attire
These people were mostly young men and women.
The same symbol was embroidered on their clothes.
A sword encircled by seven stars.
Duan Ling Tian looked at Xiong Quan and asked curiously, "They're all members of the Seven Star Sword Sect?"
Li Fei and Ke Er, who wore veils, looked at Xiong Quan as well, and their beautiful eyes had a sense of wondering mixed within.
Xiong Quan nodded. "Yes, Young Master. This is the uniform attire of the Seven Star Sword Sect.... The seven stars on the symbol of an outer court disciple's clothes are copper in color. They're silver for the inner court disciples, and gold for the Seven Star Sword Sect elders."
Duan Ling Tian came to a sudden understanding.
"The Seven Star Sword Sect's test is another half a month away. Let's first look for a place to stay in." Before long, Duan Ling Tian directly bought a courtyard house.
"Xiong Quan, you can't follow us to the Seven Star Sword Sect, so you'll stay here from now on," Duan Ling Tian said to Xiong Quan. "If I have anything I need you to do in the future, I'll come look for you."
"Yes, Young Master." Xiong Quan hurriedly nodded in a respectful manner.
Ten days later.
Origin Energy rushed out from within Duan Ling Tian's body. He had finally broken through the final bottleneck of the third level of the Origin Core Stage and smoothly stepped into the fourth level of the Origin Core Stage!
Lightly using strength, 71 ancient mammoth silhouettes appeared above Duan Ling Tian.
The strength of 71 ancient mammoths!
Compared to ordinary fourth level Origin Core martial artists, he had entire strength of 11 ancient mammoths more.
Even if compared to an ordinary fifth level Origin Core martial artist, he still had an extra strength of one ancient mammoth.
A brilliant smile appeared on Duan Ling Tian's face. "I've finally broken through."
After breaking through, Duan Ling Tian's mood was elated, and he called Xiong Quan before leaving the courtyard house with the two little girls and finding a restaurant to have a meal.
The restaurant was ancient-styled, giving one an extremely comfortable feeling.
Duan Ling Tian brought the two little girls to find a table that was beside a window, then he sat down and ordered some dishes.
"Seven Star Sword Sect inner court disciples?" Duan Ling Tian's sharp eyes noticed with a glance that amongst the three Seven Star Sword Sect disciples in the neighboring table, the stars that encircled the sword on symbol of one of their clothes was silver.
This young man that was around the age of 25 was obviously a Seven Star Sword Sect inner court disciple.
Relying on his formidable Spiritual Force and the experience of Rebirth Martial Emperor, Duan Ling Tian could confirm that the strength of this Seven Star Sword Sect disciple ought to be at the seventh level of the Origin Core Stage or above.
"Merely around 25 and at the seventh level of the Origin Core Stage or above...." Duan Ling Tian couldn't help but be astounded. As expected of an inner court disciple of a top sect in the Azure Forest Imperial Kingdom, the Seven Star Sword Sect.
After all, among the martial artists of the younger generation that he knew of, when they were around this age, the strongest amongst them was the Junior Marquis of the Divine Might Marquis Estate, Nie Fen....
However, even though Nie Fen was older that this Seven Star Sword Sect inner court disciple, his strength was inferior.
As for the other two young men, they were around 22 and 23, and they were Seven Star Sword Sect outer court disciples.
Their strengths weren't weak either; they were both at the fourth level of the Origin Core Stage or above.
"Looks like even Little Fei can only be considered to have ordinary natural talent once she's at the Seven Star Sword Sect," Duan Ling Tian thought in his heart.
Li Fei was 21 this year, and she had broken through to the third level of the Origin Core Stage a month ago.
Of course, the reason why Li Fei had her current cultivation was because she consumed the high purity medicinal pills that Duan Ling Tian refined.
Before long, their food had arrived, and Duan Ling Tian's group of three started eating.
"Squeak squeak~" The three of them had only started eating for a while when the little gold mouse sprung out from under Ke Er's sleeve. Its green eyes flickered with a strange light as it stared at the food on the table and gulped down a mouthful of saliva like a human.
"What? You want to eat too?" Duan Ling Tian noticed the little gold mouse's current appeared and couldn't refrain from laughing.
The little gold mouse hurriedly nodded.
Duan Ling Tian blinked his eyes and said to the little gold mouse, "Come, roll twice and I'll let you eat."
Unexpectedly, the little gold mouse raised its head and showed an arrogant and disdainful expression as it ignored Duan Ling Tian.
Duan Ling Tian's face sank. This little gold mouse is really intelligent.
Duan Ling Tian could almost be certain now that the little gold mouse was absolutely able to completely understand human speech, and not only that, its intelligence wasn't inferior to a human's.
"Scoundrel, don't bully Little Gold." Li Fei rolled her eyes at Duan Ling Tian, then she clamped up a piece of meat and put it before the little gold mouse.
The little gold mouse picked up the piece of meat and started nibbling on it with gusto. As it nibbled, it looked in anticipation at Ke Er.
Ke Er couldn't help but laugh. She picked up a few pieces of meat and then placed them before the little gold mouse. The little gold mouse nodded in satisfaction....
Right at this moment, Duan Ling Tian heard an exclamation in surprise from the neighboring table. "Senior brother, is that a Goldfur Mouse?"
This was something said by one of the two Seven Star Sword Sect outer court disciples from the neighboring table.
The Seven Star Sword Sect inner court disciple couldn't help but turn his head and look at Duan Ling Tian's table when he heard what the outer court disciple said.
The other outer court disciple looked over with a curious expression as well.
"Infant Goldfur Mouse?" The eyes of that Seven Star Sword Sect inner court disciple lit up, and a flowing light of greed flashed within his eyes as if he'd seen some sort of treasure.
Although the greed within the Seven Star Sword Sect inner court disciples eyes flashed by quickly, Duan Ling Tian still noticed it, but he paid no attention to it. An infant Goldfur Mouse indeed posed an extremely large temptation to a martial artist below the Void Prying Stage.
"So beautiful!" Right at this moment, one of the Seven Star Sword Sect inner court disciples noticed the appearance of Ke Er, who had already removed her veil and started eating, and his eyes shone.
The other Seven Star Sword Sect outer court disciple looked at Ke Er as well when he heard what the other outer court disciple said, and a trace of a burning gaze flashed within his eyes.
Only that Seven Star Sword Sect inner court disciple glanced indifferently at Ke Er, then his gaze once again descended onto the little gold mouse. His interest for the little gold mouse was obviously more than his interest towards Ke Er.
Duan Ling Tian didn't continue to look at those three Seven Star Sword Sect disciples, and his gaze returned to the little gold mouse, then he shook his head and smiled. "This Little Gold is a glutton like Little Black and Little White!"
And at the moment Duan Ling Tian finished speaking, a burst of agitated movement occurred within his sleeve.
Obviously, it was the two little fellows concealed under Duan Ling Tian's sleeve that were unhappy when they heard what Duan Ling Tian said.
Duan Ling Tian shook the two little pythons that were concealed under his sleeve and coiled around his arm and comforted them with a light voice. "Alright, I won't talk about you two."
Only then did the two little pythons quiet down.
"Hmm?" Suddenly, Duan Ling Tian frowned.
Because he noticed that the Seven Star Sword Sect's inner court disciple had stood up and was slowly walking over to their table.
He was coming over with bad intentions!
