Chapter 63: Little Python's Unusual Actions
Translator: / KurazyTolanzuraytor Editor: Lucas
Spending money like drinking water was exactly what Duan Ling Tian was doing right now.
32 Origin Gathering Pills cost him all the silver bills he had gotten from the medicine store manager earlier...
These silver bills hadn't even gotten warm before he spent them.
But Duan Ling Tian did not regret it one bit.
In the journey of cultivation, if you wanted to take shortcuts, then you must certainly be willing to spend money.
Duan Ling Tian had just finished eating lunch with his family when Li Fei arrived.
She wore light violet clothes that were slightly tight, making the young girl who seemed to be maturing like a honey peach look like a seductive rose. Her gracefully slender figure charmed all living creatures.
Duan Ling Tian's lower regions were burning.
This Li Fei was really an attractive beauty.
Suddenly, Duan Ling Tian withdrew his greedy eyes and instead gazed toward Li Fei's right hand.
At this moment, on the slender fingers of Li Fei's white, jade-like hands, besides her thumb, they all had pitch black rings on them...
These rings were interconnected to each other, looking simple and unadorned.
"Spirit Weapon," Duan Ling Tian thought in his heart. His face had a shocked expression.
Besides being a Royal Grade Alchemist, Rebirth Martial Emperor was also a Royal Grade Weapons Craftsmen.
Duan Ling Tian inherited his memories, so he was able to recognize with a glance that the rings on Li Fei's hand was a Spirit Weapon.
Grade Nine Spirit Weapon.
He remembered that during the Clan Martial Meet yesterday, Li Fei didn't use this Spirit Weapon.
Or else Li An would certainly not be her match.
Li Fei quickly noticed Duan Ling Tian's gaze descending upon her right hand. She couldn't help but be visibly moved as her heart jerked.
Could it be that he recognized that the thing on her hand was a Spirit Weapon?
After a moment, Duan Ling Tian gave her the answer.
"Little Fei, during the Clan Martial Meet, why didn't you use this Grade Nine Spirit Weapon? If you had used it, Li An would not necessarily be your match."
Duan Ling Tian's eyes narrowed as he gave her a spurious smile.
"I wanted to use it, but my Grandfather took it away saying it would be unfair to the others," Li Fei said with a slight, hidden bitterness.
She was slightly shocked in her heart.
This Duan Ling Tian was actually able to identify the Spirit Weapon on her hand with only just a glance.
After all, only a weapons craftsmen with great experience and eyesight could do so.
Otherwise, even if the cultivation of the martial artist was extremely high, they would still only be able to notice and identify the Spirit Weapon when it was utilized.
She suddenly felt that it was even harder to see through this youth than before.
There seemed to be a cloud of mist surrounding him.
For a moment, a boundless curiosity arose in her heart. She yearned to open up this cloud of mist and completely see through Duan Ling Tian.
Duan Ling Tian nodded as he slowly said, "That's true. Your Spirit Weapon, although it's a Grade Nine Spirit Weapon, the abilities it amplifies is nearly on par with a Grade Eight Spirit Weapon... I assume the Grade Nine Weapons Craftsmen that refined this Spirit Weapon for you has already touched the Grade Nine threshold."
The words that Duan Ling Tian spoke struck her like lightning.
The fact that her grandfather was soon to become a Grade Eight Weapons Craftsmen was something she only recently found out.
She was certain that besides her and her grandfather, there was absolutely no third person that knew about this in the entire Li Clan.
But now the youth who had only glanced at the Spirit Weapon on her hand was able to ascertain hat her grandfather was soon to become a Grade Eight Weapons Craftsmen?
"You... How did you notice?"
Li Fei's tone was hurried, slightly impatient to know the answer.
"You want to know?"
Duan Ling Tian smiled mysteriously.
Li Fei hurriedly nodded.
"This is my secret. Besides my women, I won't tell anyone else..."
The corners of Duan Ling Tian's mouth curled up into an evil smile.
She said, in an angry manner, "You! If you don't want to say, then don't. I don't really care."
How could Li Fei not realize that Duan Ling Tian was flirting with her?
"You really don't care?" Duan Ling Tian asked again.
Li Fei was currently angry, so she replied in a very straightforward manner.
Dian Ling Tian purposely sighed as he slowly said, "OK, then forget it. I originally wanted to warn you that although the weapons craftsman that refined this Spirit Weapon for you is soon to become a Grade Eight Weapons Craftsmen... I still hope you advise him not to forcefully increase the grade of his Weapon Flame for the time being."
"What do you mean?"
Li Fei's seductive and beautiful face slightly turned pale.
Duan Ling Tian didn't answer Li Fei's question but instead said, "If I'm not wrong... Recently, every day deep into the night, the weapons craftsman feels the Origin Energy inside his body having a burning feeling. It's so bad that he even has a hard time falling asleep"
Li Fei's face turned slightly red as she angrily said, "How did you know the current condition of my grandfather? You crossed over the wall to peek into our house?"
This was something she knew about, and she even specially got some soothing medicines for her grandfather, but they were all useless.
"Do I seem like such a bored person?"
Duan Ling Tian was speechless. He was kindly trying to warn Li Fei but instead was unjustly accused. He didn't continue to say anything more.
He admitted that he was amorous, but he wouldn't commit such a vulgar act.
Li Fei noticed that Duan Ling Tian didn't have any intention of paying attention to her anymore. This made her realize that she might have unjustly accused him...
Could it be that everything Duan Ling Tian said was through what he observed from the Spirit Weapon on her hand?
But this was truly unbelievable.
Drawing in a deep breath, Li Fei turned to Ke Er for help.
"Young Master, don't be angry anymore. Big Sister Li Fei didn't do it intentionally."
Ke Er persuaded him with a light smile.
"Ke Er, everyone needs to be responsible for what they have done. You can help her for a time, but you can't help her for a lifetime," Duan Ling Tian said indifferently.
Ke Er realized that the Young Master was really angry. She could only look at Li Fei with an expression that showed that she was powerless to assist her.
Li Fei's face turned red out of anger. Her clear eyes contained tears.
Duan Ling Tian looked at her with a cold and indifferent gaze as he ignored her.
"You're bullying me! Wuwu..."
Li Fei finally exploded, her tears flowing as she cried, unable to be stopped.
She's really crying.
Duan Ling Tian was slightly speechless.
He didn't feel wronged after being unjustly accused, but this little girl, what was she feeling wronged about...
Anyone who didn't know would think he really did bully her.
"Tian, did you bully Fei?"
Li Rou walked out of the kitchen and looked at Duan Ling Tian with a frown.
Duan Ling Tian was helpless.
"Enough, I won't fuss about it with you. Stop crying."
In the end, Duan Ling Tian choose to compromise.
"Wuwu...You bullied me."
But Li Fei's tears were pouring down like the rain, completely without any intention of stopping.
"If you want to continue crying, you can wait for something to happen to your grandfather."
When Duan Ling Tian saw that being gentle didn't work, he directly went with the brutal method.
This method was indeed effective.
As Duan Ling Tian's voice sounded and ended, so did Li Fei's crying.
"What did you say? You said something might happen to my grandfather?"
Li Fei voice was shaking.
Her parents were met with an accident when she was still extremely young.
So she and her grandfather had only each other to keep company. In her heart, her grandfather was even more important than herself.
"I sensed a trace of ruthless qi In the Spirit Weapon he refined...If I'm not wrong, your grandfather probably used an unorthodox method to forcefully increase the grade of his Weapon Flame. After a prolonged period, the root of his problems have long since been buried deep within him," Duan Ling Tian slowly said.
At this moment, he seemed to be like a richly experienced weapons craftsman, speaking with reason and evidence.
"Then what should I do?"
Li Fei's pretty face turned pale and extremely anxious.
"It's not like there isn't any method. Ask him to temporarily not increase his Weapon Flame's grade, or else he won't live for more than three months..."
Duan Ling Tian's tone was tranquil.
"Enough. You go and warn your grandfather, I and Ke Er will wait for you outside the north city gate. Get your own horse."
He notified Li Fei before returning to his room.
After Li Fei left, Duan Ling Tian and Ke Er brought the two little pythons along as they left their house and left the Li Clan Estate.
They galloped their horses out of the north city gate and waited for Li Fei.
After half an hour, Li Fei arrived.
Li Fei seemed valiant and heroic in bearing as she galloped over.
But her expression wasn't really well.
Duan Ling Tian frowned.
"My grandfather...my grandfather said..."
Li Fei was hesitant to speak.
"He didn't believe me, and even said that I'm just a kid. What would I know...right?"
Duan Ling Tian was not one bit surprised.
Li Fei lightly nodded.
"Then there's nothing I can do."
Duan Ling Tian spread out his hands to express that he had the heart to help but was powerless.
"My grandfather promised me that before we return, he won't try to increase the grade of his Weapon Flame. After we return, can you go take a look at my grandfather?"
As Li Fei finished speaking, she had a begging expression.
Duan Ling Tian took a deep glance at Li Fei as he asked, "What, now you believe me?"
Li Fei hurriedly nodded.
"OK, I'll promise you."
Duan Ling Tian nodded.
Following which, he brought along the two young girls who were beautiful like flowers straight towards the Misty Forest.
After arriving at the Misty Forest, Li Fei's mood was much better.
But she lacked a bit of the liveliness that she used to have.
After all, her grandfather's matter had already become a knot in her heart.
After entering the Misty Forest, Ke Er asked, "Young Master, how should we find Little White's and Little Black's father?'
"I don't know either. Let's go to the Black Python's nest from before. Maybe we can meet the Snow Python there," Duan Ling Tian said.
"What you mean is... Little Black and Little White are the offspring of the Snow Python?"
Li Fei was slightly shocked.
"That is our current guess."
Duan Ling Tian nodded.
Duan Ling Tian's group quickly arrived at the Black Python's nest.
Presently, there were only traces of dried blood outside the Black Python's nest. The Black Python's corpse and the corpse of the few youths and young girls had all vanished, probably eaten by fierce beasts.
Suddenly, the two little pythons that were coiled around Duan Ling Tian and Ke Er's wrists flashed out.
They went directly into the depths of the Misty Forest.
"Let's follow them!"
Duan Ling Tian brought Ke Er and Li Fei along as he followed them.
Duan Ling Tian guessed that the two little pythons might have sensed the presence of their father.
"This is already the inner area. If we go any deeper, there will be plenty of fierce beasts."
Li Fei warned.
"I know, we'll journey from atop the trees."
Duan Ling Tian brought the two girls along as he climbed up a large tree to the side. Using the dense tree branches as a road, he followed the two little pythons.
Although the treetops didn't lack bird-type fierce beasts, their numbers were not large as mammal-type fierce beasts.
Overall, the top of the trees were much safer.
Suddenly, a beast roar sounded.
An enormous fierce beast blocked the path of the two little pythons. Looking fiercely at the two little things, its sharp fang flickered with devilish brilliance.
Noticing the enormous fierce beast, Duan Ling Tian's expression turned grim.
"It's the Savage Tiger. Its strength is comparable to a martial artist at the fourth level of the Core Formation Stage."
Li Fei's face was slightly pale.
"Little White, Little Black..."
Ke Er's face was filled with worry.
