Chapter 263: 10,000 Year Stalactite Milk
Translator: KurazyTolanzuraytor Editor: Lucas
Duan Ling Tian noticed that around the part of the cliff that the tilted tree was stuck into, traces of moisture was emitted in the area around two to three meters around it. This was completely different from the other parts of the cliff.
Moreover, this part of the cliff had a slightly darker color than the other parts of the cliff.
If one didn't carefully observe it, one wouldn't notice it.
"Hiss hiss~" The sound of the two little pythons sounded out from behind the cliff and passed through the two small holes to echo out, seeming to be urging Duan Ling Tian to quickly come in.
"You two little pythons wouldn't be wanting me to learn from you two and force my way in, right?" The corners of Duan Ling Tian's mouth curled into a bitter smile. He looked down to glance at the bottomless chasm beneath the tilted tree and a trace of coldness arose within his heart.
Right at this moment, a loud noise echoed out. It was the sound of knocking from the inner side of the cliff, and the sound of knocking was deep and powerful.
Duan Ling Tian knew that this activity was surely caused by those two little fellows.
Just when he was curious about what the two little fellows wanted to do, he instead noticed that the cliff before him had actually cracked open, and crack after crack spread out....These cracks became like a spider web in the blink of an eye, enveloping half of the cliff.
"Could it be...?" Duan Ling Tian's gaze couldn't help but light up when he saw this scene, and at the same time he shouted in a low voice. "Little Black, Little White, move away!"
"Hiss hiss~" The sounds of the two little fellows flicking their tongues grew further and further away.
Duan Ling Tian took a deep breath and clenched his right hand into a fist, then Origin Energy suffused onto his fist.... Above him, 71 ancient mammoth silhouettes condensed into form as if they were hunting on the sky, ready to dash out at any time.
Suddenly, Duan Ling Tian moved!
He pulled back his right arm abruptly as if pulling back the string of a bow, then in the next moment, his fist shot straight out as if transformed into a cannonball, fiercely smashing onto the cliff before him.
An ear-piercing explosive sound echoed out.
The cliff that already had countless cracks on it was shattered by Duan Ling Tian's fist strike. Stone pieces and stone chips flew out to fall down into the bottomless chasm. The sound of them hitting the ground couldn't be heard.
"Hmm?" Duan Ling Tian's gaze abruptly lit up when he saw the scene behind the cliff.
However, the swaying that came from beneath his feet caused Duan Ling Tian's face to go grim, and his heartbeat raced. At this moment, he was truly worried that he would fall down into the bottomless chasm along with the tilted tree....
Luckily, at the critical moment, the swaying tilted tree returned to peace and held on!
"It's truly terrifying....My heart nearly jumped out." The corners of Duan Ling Tian's mouth curled into a bitter smile and had a slight lingering fear. But when his gaze once again returned to the space behind the shattered cliff, he instead seemed to have forgotten his great trepidation from earlier and had a face full of excitement.
Duan Ling Tian exerted force with his feet and seemed to transform into a spirit serpent as he flashed into the space behind the cliff.
There was really a hidden cave behind the cliff after all, and it was a naturally formed cave passage.
If it wasn't for the two little pythons discovering this cave, not to mention him, even if Rebirth Martial Emperor arrived here personally during his peak, he would still be unable to discover this place....
In certain aspects, the ability of a fierce beast was far beyond the reach of humans.
The two little pythons transformed into bolts of lighting and returned onto Duan Ling Tian's hand, then they nodded to Duan Ling Tian before swinging out their tails to point to the cave.
"You two want me to go in and take a look?" Duan Ling Tian looked at the two little fellows and lightly smiled.
The two little fellows hurriedly nodded like humans.
Duan Ling Tian let out a deep breath and slightly loosened up his stiff nerves from before, then he walked towards the inner part of the cave in large strides.
Even if the two little pythons hadn't reminded him, he would've still gone in.
This place was extremely strange, and it revealed mysteriousness from every corner, causing Duan Ling Tian to have a desire to explore it until the end arise within his heart.
This passage within the cave was full of twists and turns.
Not long after Duan Ling Tian walked in, he noticed total darkness before him.
However, this wasn't a problem. With a strand of Pill Fire burning in Duan Ling Tian's hand, the entire cave was instantly bright as day, allowing him to continue walking forward slowly.
"Hiss hiss~" Suddenly, the two little pythons that were coiled on Duan Ling Tian's hand seemed to have sensed something and were extremely excited.
Duan Ling Tian took a few more large strides forward.
Instantly, the two little pythons transformed into black and white bolts of lightning and flashed forward.
Duan Ling Tian didn't hesitate when he saw this and his body moved to follow the two little fellows.
Spirit Serpent Movement Technique!
At the corner in the front, Duan Ling Tian noticed that the two little pythons had stopped, and their gold and silver eyes were looking into the distance in stupefaction.
Duan Ling Tian looked over curiously as well.
"That is...." Duan Ling Tian saw that at the end of the cave passage before him, a trace of a gentle, white light actually flickered there.
Now only that, as he stood here, Duan Ling Tian could still clearly feel the Origin Energy within his body pulsing.
And the Origin Energy within his Dantian seemed to start boiling as well.
"What's that place?" Duan Ling Tian had a face full of astonishment, then he put out the Pill Fire in his hand, as this place didn't need the light of a flame to illuminate it.
Duan Ling Tian brought along the two little pythons to walk towards the end of the cave passage step by step.
This was the center of the Megrez peak.
Before long, Duan Ling Tian left the cave passage and stepped into a space that was bright as day.
The air here was slightly cold, and Duan Ling Tian couldn't stop himself from shivering when he'd just arrived here.
But when he carefully sized up this place, he was completely dumbstruck.
This space that was bright as day was around the size of an ordinary room, and in the front was a natural pond. Within the pond was a puddle of milky-white liquid....
A clear sound echoed out by his ears, and Duan Ling Tian clearly saw a drop of milky-white liquid dropping into the pond, causing circles of ripples that spread out.
Duan Ling Tian abruptly raised his head to look above him.
A large stretch of stalactites appeared before his eyes.
"This type of stalactite...." Duan Ling Tian searched through the memories of Rebirth Martial Emperor. After a short moment he came to sudden enlightenment, and his pupils couldn't help but constrict. "This....This is 10,000 Year Stalactite Milk?"
10,000 Year Stalactite Milk!
According to the memories of Rebirth Martial Emperor.
Stalactite milk formed from 100-year-old stalactites could be used as medicine, but its effects were minimal.
Stalactite milk formed from 1,000-year-old stalactites had extremely high effects, was able nourish Origin Energy, and to a certain extent was able to slightly increase one's natural talent in the Martial Dao.
However, stalactite milk formed from 10,000-year-old stalactites were of the highest grade!
Once 10,000 Year Stalactite Milk was formed, the medicinal effect of it was even better than 1,000 Year Stalactite Milk.
Even Rebirth Martial Emperor who'd experienced two lifetimes only encountered 10,000 Year Stalactite Milk once during his second lifetime.
And it was precisely that fortuitous encounter that allowed the natural talent in the Martial Dao of Rebirth Martial Emperor's second lifetime to increase to a monstrous state, and the time he used to cultivate to the Martial Emperor Stage was only 50% of the time he spent doing so during his first lifetime!
What sort of notion was this?
The 10,000 Year Stalactite Milk was able to increase a person's natural talent in the Martial Dao to a monstrous state!
"I've struck it big! I've struck it big!" Duan Ling Tian's face flushed red and he was extremely excited.
He'd never imagined that his luck was so good. He'd only just entered the Seven Star Sword Sect and only just entered Megrez Peak, but he'd encountered the 10,000 Year Stalactite Milk that one could find by luck but not by searching for it.
Moreover, that pond of 10,000 Year Stalactite Milk, it was at least....
Duan Ling Tian was thinking in his heart, and subconsciously looked towards the puddle of milk in the pond.
This glance instead made his eyes nearly split!
"Little Black, Little White!" Duan Ling Tian's pupils constricted, and his voice was filled with an ear-piercing howl that was slightly exasperated.
What had he seen?
The two little pythons were currently greedily sucking the 10,000 Year Stalactite Milk, and in a short moment, half of the puddle of milk was eaten by them, an entire half!
At the instant that Duan Ling Tian looked over, the two little pythons had already lied down in satisfaction and fallen asleep with their bloated stomachs.
On their bodies, the gold and silver markings flickered with a light luster.
The corners of Duan Ling Tian's mouth twitched, and he wished for nothing more than to expel the 10,000 Year Stalactite Milk from the stomachs of the two little fellows....So much 10,000 Year Stalactite Milk, and half of it was swallowed by them in the blink of an eye.
Duan Ling Tian walked over and took out a few unused pill bottles, then he filled the bottles with the remaining 10,000 Year Stalactite Milk.
After cleaning out the puddle, Duan Ling Tian raised his head to look at the 10,000 year stalactites above him. He noticed that another drop of 10,000 Year Stalactite Milk hadn't dropped down after a long time.
"According to this speed, this 10,000 Year Stalactite Milk will probably need a few months before being able to drip down another drop of milk...." Duan Ling Tian guessed.
Duan Ling Tian's gaze descended onto the two little pythons who had fallen asleep with bloated stomachs, and he thought in his heart while filled with curiosity, "These two little fellows swallowed so much 10,000 Year Stalactite Milk, it can be considered to be a great fortune....I wonder how they will change in the fortune."
The two little pythons were both variant fierce beasts and already had extraordinary talent that was not inferior to the little gold mouse who was a Jade-eyed Heavenly Mouse.
Now, after swallowing so much 10,000 Year Stalactite Milk that was able to increase natural talent, they would surely be even more heaven-defying in the future.
"Even though it's cold here, it is full of spirit energy.... It's a good place to cultivate in." Duan Ling Tian found a stone platform at a side of the cave and sat down.
His eyes narrowed and he circulated the Nine Dragons War Sovereign Technique's Wyrm Python Form mental cultivation method....
Duan Ling Tian could clearly feel that at this place, the Origin Energy within his Dantian boiled, and when he cultivated, his advancement was incomparably swift.
"Even the place with the most abundant spirit energy in the Seven Star Sword Sect's main peak, the Dubhe Peak, might not be able to compare to this place," Duan Ling Tian secretly thought in his heart.
"I never imagined that there actually existed such a place in the Seven Star Sword Sect's Megrez Peak....These stalactites have already formed for 10,000 years and are even older than the history of the Seven Star Sword Sect. The members of the Seven Star Sword Sect have obviously not discovered this place; otherwise, the 10,000 Year Stalactite Milk would have long since been cleaned out."
After an unknown amount of time, Duan Ling Tian slowly opened his eyes.
He noticed that his cultivation at the fourth level of the Origin Core Stage had completely stabilized.
"I originally thought it would at least take three to five days for my cultivation to stabilized, but I never imagined that within this 10,000 year stalactite cave, it would be done within one cultivation session." Duan Ling Tian's face revealed a sense of pleasant surprise.
