Chapter 49: 200,000 Silver
Translator: / KurazyTolanzuraytor Editor: Lucas
Dark Spirit Fruit, even in the two lifetimes of Rebirth Martial Emperor, he had heard of it but had never seen one.
That just shows how exceedingly rare the Dark Spirit Fruit is.
If the Dark Spirit Fruit is consumed by an ordinary person, it will allot the person to instantly complete his body tempering, allowing them to step into the ninth level of the Body Tempering stage within three months...
It was indeed heaven-defying!
"Because of the uniqueness of the Nine Dragons War Sovereign Technique's Spirit Serpent Form, I still haven't been able to break through. Maybe this will be a turning point for me."
Drawing in a deep breath, Duan Ling Tian slowly suppressed the excitement in his heart.
He didn't expect his luck would be so good.
This pleasant surprise was really too huge.
As for the other two dark violet spirit fruits, they were extremely rare spirit fruits as well.
Violet Thorned Fruit.
A type of extremely poisonous spirit fruit. If consumed by a human, it would cause instant death.
But if consumed by a poisonous fierce beast, it would be a tonic to it.
"Young Master, let's keep them."
Unknowingly, the young girl had already taken the two fist-sized python eggs in her hand. She was looking at Duan Ling Tian with anticipation.
"Since their mother is dead, let's take them both home."
Duan Ling Tian nodded.
The Violet Thorned Fruits were obviously ripe. The reason the black python still hadn't consumed it was probably because it was keeping it for its two offspring.
After plucking the Violet Thorned Fruits and the Dark Spirit Fruit, Duan Ling Tian and Ke Er left the cave.
Ke Er's gaze never left the two python eggs in her hands. Her clear eyes were filled with motherly brilliance...
"Ke Er, wait for me over there."
Duan Ling Tian walked to the front of a passed out youth.
His sensitive senses felt the suppressed killing intent emitted from the youth.
A killing intent directed towards him!
"Stop acting; your breathing sold you out," Duan Ling Tian said in a low voice, and in the instant that the youth's eyes emitted a terrified expression, his Violet Meteorite Flexible Sword had already silently pierced the youth's heart.
At the beginning, Duan Ling Tian didn't expect he would bump into such a matter.
So he and Ke Er didn't change their clothes which had the Li Clan's crest.
Now, only with the death of this youth could he avoid any troubles in the future.
As a former weapons specialist, Duan Ling Tian deeply knew the maliciousness of a person's heart.
There was also the fact that the youth showed killing intent towards him.
After taking a circle around, Duan Ling Tian noticed that four out of the seven had been killed by the black python. Adding on the one he just killed, there were still two more alive.
Two extremely faint killing intents were indistinctly felt.
They were obviously awake but pretended to be passed out.
In the silence of the surroundings, Duan Ling Tian's ears slightly moved as he clearly heard their rapid and nervous breathing.
Another two sword strikes went directly into their hearts!
After finishing off the other two, Duan Ling Tian collected the more valuable spoils they had.
He then glanced at the black python's corpse before giving up on the thought of cutting it up, then Duan Ling Tian slowly walked towards Ke Er.
Half an hour later.
The body of the short and stout youth who was supposed to have been pierced in the heart by Duan Ling Tian trembled. He struggled to open his eyes, then he removed a medicinal pill from his pocket with much difficulty and swallowed it.
After a short amount of time.
The blood flowing out of the short and stout youth's chest finally stopped.
"Li Clan... Member of Aurora City's Li Clan, you probably never would have imagined that my heart was naturally inclined sideways."
The short and stout youth struggled to sit up, his expression extremely grim.
Because his heart was inclined sideways, he was able to keep his life.
Suddenly, as if he had noticed something, the short and stout youth's expression change into an expression of terror as he hurriedly fled.
After he fled.
An enormous figure moved a thousand meters in an instant and abruptly descended, all while emitting a bizarre roar filled with rage...
Aurora City, Xiao Clan Estate.
In a vast and luxurious courtyard, the youth in the embroidered clothing walked out. His expression seemed anxious.
"That Six Treasures Body Tempering Liquid is virtually godly! Based on my current cultivation level, consuming Body Tempering Pills would require at least around five days of consumption to achieve a breakthrough, but undergoing medicinal baths in that Six Treasures Body Tempering Liquid will merely require two days of absorption before I can break through!"
The youth dressed in embroidered clothing brought along his two bodyguards as he left the Xiao Clan and arrived at the trade market.
"Manager, give me another hundred portions of Six Treasures Body Tempering Liquid!"
The youth dressed in embroidered clothing entered the medicine store and directly proclaimed his needs.
When the medicine store manager noticed the youth in embroidered clothing rushing over, he thought that the Six Treasures Body Tempering Liquid was useless and the youth had come to sully the reputation of his store.
But he never would have imagined that the youth would say this.
A hundred portions?
The manager's heart trembled.
"Young Master Xiao, I'm afraid It would be impossible today; I still haven't replenished my stock. How about two days from now?"
The manager laughed bitterly.
"I really wonder what you were thinking. Such an excellent medicinal liquid and you didn't replenish extra stock. This is 5,000 silver as deposit. I'll come by to get it in two days."
The youth in embroidered clothing frowned, then he put down 5,000 silver before leaving in large strides.
The manager had a distressed expression.
He was only casually mentioning the time earlier, and he was completely unaware when the Li Clan youth would return.
Now he felt a bit of regret. If he had known earlier, he would have gotten more Six Treasures Body Tempering Liquid from the youth.
"Manager, what happened? Why the distressed face?"
Just at this moment, a voice sounded.
The manager's gaze instantly shone brilliantly, as if he found his savior. He quickly went to greet the person.
The person who arrived was indeed Duan Ling Tian!
After leaving the black python's nest, he and Ke Er returned to Aurora City.
They first went and took care of the spoils of their trip, exchanging it for 3,000 silver.
Afterwards, out of a whim, he wanted to know how the sales of the Six Treasures Body Tempering Liquid was going, so he came to medicine store.
Duan Ling Tian looked at the slightly discomposed manager with a puzzled expression.
"Customer, the Six Treasures Body Tempering Liquid you put for sale in my store has been sold."
The manager took out a thousand silver and passed it Duan Ling Tian in a slightly agitated manner.
Duan Ling Tian lightly smiled as he asked, "Then, Manager, do you need more stock now?"
"Yes, yes! I want as much as you can give me!" the manager hurriedly said, seemingly extremely afraid Duan Ling Tian would cut off his supply.
"Do you have an unused room here?" Duan Ling Tian asked the manager.
"We do, Customer. You need it?"
The manager was dazed.
"Yes, I plan to concoct the medicinal liquid here from now on."
Duan Ling Tian nodded.
The manager's pupils constricted as he asked in amazement, "Customer, you concocted the Six Treasures Body Tempering Liquid?"
"It's only a medicinal liquid. Is there any reason to get so excited over it?"
Duan Ling Tian smiled indifferently.
The corners of the manager's mouth twitched. He wondered if the youth in front of him had said that on purpose.
A medicinal liquid that could thoroughly triumph over the Body Tempering Pill, was that an ordinary medicinal liquid?
"Since I'm already here today, go prepare some medicinal materials for me. I'll concoct some for you now."
According to Duan Ling Tian's request, the manager quickly finished preparing everything.
Looking at the pile of cheap medicinal materials in front of him, and then looking at the large crock in the room, the corners of the manager's mouth started to tremble...
According to these proportions, the cost of manufacturing the Six Treasures Body Tempering Liquid was almost negligible.
If this large crock was filled to the brim, it would at least produce around 2,000 portions of Six Treasures Body Tempering Liquid, right?
When Duan Ling Tian and Ke Er were about to prepare the medicinal materials, the manager suppressed the agitation in his heart as he self-consciously left the enclosed room and closed the door behind him.
With the assistance of Ke Er, Duan Ling Tian finally finished concocting the large crock full of Six Treasures Body Tempering Liquid in an hour.
He then walked out of the room and returning to the medicine store.
"Manager, I'll trouble you to divide the Six Treasures Body Tempering Liquids into portions."
Duan Ling Tian lightly smiled at the manager.
The manager entered the small room for a moment before exiting once more with a glowing face.
"Respected Customer, that large crock of Six Treasures Body Tempering Liquid would at least be 2,000 portions... How bout I pay you the silver for 2,000 portions now, and we will sort out the difference later?" the manager asked.
"OK, as for the cost of the consumed medicinal materials, just deduct it from the extra portions."
Duan Ling Tian nodded as he received the silver bills from the manager.
200,000 silver in bills felt heavy when held it.
"No need. Those medicinal materials don't even cost a thousand silver combined, just take it as a gift from me."
The manager was very perceptive in the way he dealt with the situation.
If it was in the past and someone had told the manager that medicinal materials that weren't even worth a thousand silver could be concocted into medicinal liquid worth 220,000 silver, he wouldn't believe it even if he was beaten to death.
Now that the facts were laid out right before his eyes, he had to believe it.
"Manager, since you're so frank, I'll take it. How about this: you can suitably increase the price of the Six Treasures Body Tempering Liquid. My bottom line is...80% for me and 20 for you."
Duan Ling Tian glanced deeply at the manager.
"Thank you, Customer!"
The manager took a deep breath.
He knew that since the youth relented, he would naturally be able to change the price of the Six Treasures Body Tempering Liquid.
"Oh yeah, before the end of our Li Clan Martial Meet, I won't come here again, so you better not sell off all the Six Treasures Body Tempering Liquid in a few days... Precious items are more valuable. Manager, you're an intelligent person."
After saying one last thing to the manager, and under the manager's shocked gaze, Duan Ling Tian and Ke Er returned to the Li Clan Estate.
"Young Master, I didn't think silver was so easy to earn."
Ke Er's face was slightly red because she was mildly excited.
"Haha... Ke Er, not everyone has this sort of ability to earn money like your young master>"
Duan Ling Tian laughed loudly.
In the entire Cloud Continent, it would probably be only him and the Li Family's Grand Elder who knew how to concoct the Six Treasures Body Tempering Liquid.
Whereas only he knew how to concoct the Seven Treasures Body Tempering Liquid.
After returning home and greeting his mother, Duan Ling Tian hastily returned to his room and consumed the Dark Spirit Fruit.
Instantly, Duan Ling Tian felt a warm and boundless medicinal strength filling his entire body.
His lifeblood was strengthening by leaps and bounds, and his fleshly body was undergoing a metamorphosis at full speed...
In the courtyard.
"Ke Er, what type of egg is this?"
Looking at the two python eggs Ke Er placed on the table, Li Rou curiously asked.
"Madam, these are black python eggs."
Ke Er smiled.
Li Rou's pupils constricted.
She of course knew of the bloodthirsty fierce beast, black python.
"Ke Er, what happened?" Li Rou asked.
Ke Er obediently told her about what happened on her trip with Duan Ling Tian.
"So it would seem that the two of you benefitted greatly simply by waiting for it to fall into your laps."
Li Rou laughed.
"Madam, the young master didn't make a move to save them. Isn't that not nice?"
Puckering her pink, small mouth, Ke Er blinked her clear eyes as she looked at Li Rou.
Although Ke Er didn't say anything in front of Duan Ling Tian, in her heart, she found it slightly difficult to feel at ease.
In her pure and simple world, she felt that they should have helped those youths and young girls hunt and kill the black python.
"Ke Er, I don't think Tian did anything wrong in this matter. Not to mention that the black python might have injured you, even if you really had helped them kill the black python, they might have joined hands to deal with you and Tian for the sake of obtaining the treasures that the black python guarded."
Li Rou guided patiently and gently. She had experienced much more than Ke Er and thus knew of the maliciousness of a person's heart.
For the sake of treasures, relatives killing each other could be found everywhere, let alone strangers.
"Hmm, Ke Er didn't think so much about it at that time. Ke Er will listen to the young master in the future."
Ke Er lightly nodded as she slowly felt at ease.
From this moment on, Ke Er would never doubt any of Duan Ling Tian's decisions in the future...
In her world, Duan Ling Tian was the heavens; he was everything.
