Chapter 34: Blood Thirsty Killing Intent
Translator: / KurazyTolanzuraytor Editor: Lucas
Seeing Duan Ling Tian about to lose his life to Duan Ling Xing, a loud shout came from afar.
A giant palm made of Origin Energy appeared out of thin air, flew forward, and grabbed Duan Ling Xing.
Instantly, Duan Ling Xing's palm strike towards Duan Ling Tian hit an empty space.
The person who lent a hand was the person leading the three people who had flown out of the Li family's audience hall, a middle-aged man whose face was filled with stubble.
At this moment, the middle-aged man was frowning.
"Nascent Soul stage!"
Li Nan Feng's pupils constricted as he followed from behind.
Origin Energy discharge, something only Nascent Soul and above martial artists were capable of it...
A gentle and graceful figure flew out to Duan Ling Tian's side.
After examining her son's injuries, Li Rou's icy cold gaze fell upon Duan Ling Xing. "Duan Ling Xing, no matter what, my son is still your cousin, and you actually attacked so mercilessly!"
Duan Ling Xing sneered as he said, in a sarcastic voice, "My good third aunt, don't you forget, third uncle crippled my father's Dantian that year, causing my dad's life to be painful beyond death. I just wanted to let my cousin repay some interest on that debt."
The middle-aged man with a face full of stubble frowned and coldly shouted, "Ling Xing, if you want to act in such an unrestrained manner, you can scram back to the clan right now!"
Duan Ling Xing laughed dryly. "Fourth uncle, I won't say anymore."
Duan Ling Tian looked at Li Nan Feng, gritted his teeth, and said, "Patriarch, hurry and take Li Xuan to see Grand Elder!"
Only now did Li Nan Feng notice Li Xuan lying not too far from them. His face changed greatly as he carried Li Xuan and flew towards Grand Elder's residence.
"Ke Er, Ke Er..."
Subsequently, Duan Ling Tian came back to his senses and painfully crawled over to Ke Er, who was also crawling over to him. When he got close enough, he grabbed her hand and asked, "Ke Er, are you alright?"
"Young Master, I'm fine."
The young girl firmly shook her head.
Li Rou helped Duan Ling Tian and Ke Er up, then she took in a deep breath and looked towards the middle-aged man with the face full of stubble. "Tian, this is your fourth uncle."
"Mom, I don't know him and I don't want to know him!"
Duan Ling Tian gazed coldly at the middle-aged man, his face full of disdain.
"Tian, don't be disrespectful!"
Li Rou's willow-shaped eyebrows frowned.
"Mom, respect is something that is given to a senior who is worthy of it... A person who doesn't treat their juniors fairly, on what grounds would I respect him on?"
Duan Ling Tian swept the middle-aged man with a cold and indifferent gaze.
Ever since he appeared, the middle-aged man had not once reprimanded Duan Ling Xing. A person who wasn't impartial was unworthy of being his senior!
"Fourth brother, I'm sorry, I've spoiled Tian."
Li Rou looked at the middle-aged man apologetically.
"Third sister in law, I understand; I don't blame Ling Tian."
The middle-aged man sighed before saying, "What happened today was my fault. If only I hadn't suddenly felt the urge to come see third sister in law while I passed by Fresh Breeze Town, it wouldn't have... Never mind, I'll take my leave now."
The middle-aged man looked apologetically at Duan Ling Tian as he finished speaking, then he took Duan Ling Xing and left.
Before Duan Ling Xing left, he shot a cold and indifferent gaze at Duan Ling Tian. The corners of his mouth had a trace of a mocking smile of ridicule...
Duan Ling Tian clenched his fist tightly. The sound of his bones rubbing against each other sounded constantly and his eyes were emitting a bloody-thirsty killing intent...
In his two lifetimes, it was the first time he had encountered such humiliation.
This enmity and hatred was irreconcilable!
Sooner or later, he will make Duan Ling Xing pay a hundred fold, a thousand fold!
No matter who Duan Ling Xing was, no matter his identity, status, or the relationship between them...
Abruptly, as if he remembered something, Duan Ling Tian looked up towards his mother with an impatient expression. "Mom, I'll be going to Grand Elder's residence. I want to go see how Li Xuan is doing."
"Tian, mom will support you and Ke Er back home to rest first," Li Rou said with concern.
"Mom, I'm aware of my injuries. I just need to get a grade nine Gold Injury Pill from Grand Elder and I'll be fine. You carry Ke Er back while I go see Li Xuan and bring Ke Er a grade nine Gold Injury Pill as well."
After taking a deep breath, Duan Ling Tian released Li Rou's hand and gritted his teeth as he slowly walked away.
"Young Master, I'll go with you," the young girl stubbornly said.
"Ke Er, be obedient and go home."
Duan Ling Tian looked at the young girl with a serious expression.
Only then did the young girl nod. She went home with the support of Li Rou.
Only after Duan Ling Tian arrived at the Grand Elder's residence and got a grade nine Gold Injury Pill from Li Huo did his injuries finally recover slightly.
But he quickly noticed that Li Huo's face was getting uglier by the second, which made his heart jerk. "Grand Elder, how's Li Xuan's injuries?"
Just when Li Huo was about to respond to Duan Ling Tian, a figure flashed into the room like the wind. When he noticed the blacked out Li Xuan, his expression became ugly. He looked towards Li Huo and said, "Grand Elder, my son he..."
"Luckily, this kid has thick skin and thick flesh. His internal organs aren't injured, but his chest bone is almost completely shattered, so I'm afraid he won't last much longer..."
Li Huo sighed.
Duan Ling Tian and Fifth Elder Li Ting's faces both changed greatly.
"Grand Elder, is there any way to save him?"
Li Ting looked towards Li Huo. His heart was burning with anxiety.
"He would survive if we gave him a Bone Formation Pill, but this pill went extinct years ago; I've only seen it recorded in some ancient books."
Li Huo shook his head with an expression of helplessness.
Bone Formation Pill?
When he heard this, Duan Ling Tian immediately searched through Rebirth Martial Emperor's memories...
Eventually, he found the medicinal formula for the Bone Formation Pill.
Duan Ling Tian looked toward Li Huo and said, "Grand Elder, I have the Bone Formation Pill's medicinal formula!"
"Splendid!" Li Ting excitedly said. "But don't get happy too early. The Bone Formation Pill is a grade eight medicinal pill, so only a grade eight Alchemist or above is capable of refining it. Even if I have the medicinal formula, I'm incapable of refining it..."
Li Huo sighed, the difference between a Grade Eight Alchemist and a Grade Nine Alchemist was like the difference between heaven and earth.
Subsequently, Li Huo looked at Duan Ling Tian. "Kid, in three days, can you get in contact with your teacher?"
Duan Ling Tian was dazed.
That grade seven Alchemist teacher of his was made up; there was no such person on this world.
He could only laugh bitterly. "Grand Elder, my teacher is secretive about his whereabouts. After passing on the medicinal formulas to me, he left Fresh Breeze Town and I have no way of finding him."
"Then I can't do anything." Li Huo shook his head and sighed.
"Grand Elder, how long can my son hold on for?" Li Ting asked.
"Three days at most." Li Huo replied.
"Three days?" Li Ting's face changed greatly. "Three days is too short. That's not enough time to notify his grandfather... Grand Elder, is there any way to prolong his life?"
"I'm powerless." Li Huo shook his head.
"I might have a way," Duan Ling Tian said before looking at Li Ting. "Fifth Elder, I can endeavour to lengthen Li Xuan's remaining time by a month, but can Li Xuan's grandfather find a grade eight Alchemist in such a short amount of time?"
Duan Ling Tian had long ago realized that Li Xuan's grandfather was no ordinary person, it wouldn't be surprising if he could invite a grade eight Alchemist over.
"I don't even need a month, half a month should be enough! Ling Tian, it's up to you."
Li Ting turned around and walked out, only leaving behind his last sentence. He obviously trusted Duan Ling Tian without even a shred of doubt.
The more he was like this, the more guilty Duan Ling Tian felt.
"Kid, do you really have a way?" Li Huo asked.
"Grand Elder, I have the medicinal formula for a type of medicinal liquid. As long as Li Xuan's body soaks in the liquid, it will be able to prolong his bones' vitality for another month," Duan Ling Tian said.
"What materials are needed? I'll get someone to buy them." Li Huo's gaze shone.
Duan Ling Tian wrote down the medicinal formula without further ado, including the medicinal material proportions. At this moment, he didn't care about concealing anything, and it was only a low grade medicinal formula anyway.
Li Huo looked through the medicinal formula and couldn't help himself from gasping in admiration. "Miraculous! Miraculous!"
"Grand Elder, it's up to you."
After finishing what he said, Duan Ling Tian got another grade nine Gold Injury Pill from Li Huo before leaving.
Only after bringing the grade nine Gold Injury Pill home and confirming that Ke Er's injuries were not serious did he breathe a breath of relief.
If anything had happened to Ke Er, he would never have forgiven himself.
With Li Rou's Origin Energy assisting her to dissolve the pill, Ke Er's injuries were almost recovered by dusk.
Duan Ling Tian's injuries were more serious, so he needed to rest for a few more days.
"Tian, is Li Xuan alright?"
When she found out from Ke Er that Li Xuan also got injured, Li Rou was worried about Li Xuan's injuries.
If it wasn't for Li Xuan, she might not have been able to see her son anymore in this lifetime.
"Mom, he will be fine," Duan Ling Tian said seriously.
"Mom believes you." Li Rou nodded.
Suddenly, Duan Ling Tian looked towards his mother but hesitated to speak.
He wanted to ask about the father he had never met, but he didn't know how to ask.
"Tian, go back and rest. Mom will tell you about what you want to know tomorrow.
Li Rou saw through Duan Ling Tian's thoughts.
Duan Ling Tian nodded before returning to his room to rest.
Lying on his bed, Duan Ling Tian looked towards the ceiling. His eyes flashed coldly. "I originally thought that with my current cultivation progress and my current natural talent, not even mentioning Fresh Breeze Town, even in the cities outside, there would not be many who could compete against me..."
"That Duan Ling Xing is only twenty-something years old, but his cultivation has already stepped into the sixth level of the Core Formation stage. When he uses his full power, he is able to draw upon the forces of heaven and earth to develop eight ancient mammoth silhouettes! Today, if I hadn't used the Spirit Serpent Movement Technique to incline my body backwards in time, his first palm strike would have certainly killed me!"
At this moment, only Duan Ling Tian realized how weak he was.
Although he was able to kill a first level Core Formation martial artist out of luck, he was powerless against a sixth level Core Formation Duan Ling Xing.
Even when he had attacked with Drawing Sword Arts at full strength, it was have easily been stopped by Duan Ling Xing.
The difference in cultivation between him and Duan Ling Xing was like a chasm.
"Duan Ling Xing..."
Whenever he thought of this name from now on, Duan Ling Tian would not be able to stop himself from having a flame burn in his heart and emitting a blood thirsty killing intent.
For the first time ever, he strongly desired to kill a person.
This desire was something he didn't experience even in his past life.
After a moment, he thought about Li Xuan.
To be honest, since the beginning, although he had accepted Li Xuan as a little brother on the surface, he was still a little distant from him in his heart.
After all, in his previous life, he was betrayed by his best brother, causing him to be unable to easily trust a so called 'Brother'.
But this time, Li Xuan, with no regard for his own life, used his own body to help him block that lethal attack. This truly touched Duan Ling Tian's heartstrings...
At this moment, he really thought of Li Xuan as his brother!
