Chapter 64: Nascent Soul Powerhouse
Translator: / KurazyTolanzuraytor Editor: Lucas
The two little pythons' sharp eyes flickered with a fierce light as they stared at the enormous being in front of them.
Their tongues flicked swiftly like bolts of lightning.
Suddenly, the Savage Tiger let out a low growl, dropping down with a loud bang as it lay down on all fours.
Its enormous body was slightly trembling as if it were submitting itself in worship.
The two little pythons ignored the Savage Tiger, continuing to hurry on with their journey. After transforming into two white and black bolts of lightning, they gradually disappeared ahead.
Duan Ling Tian suppressed his shock and hurriedly followed.
Li Fei and Ke Er both had shocked expressions.
In front of the Savage Tiger, the extremely small little guys were actually able to make the Savage Tiger submit itself. It was truly inconceivable.
Duan Ling Tian, however, thought of a possibility...
If the two little pythons were really the offspring of the Snow Python, they would surely have the Snow Python's aura on their bodies.
As a fierce beast that was comparable to a Nascent Soul Stage powerhouse, the Snow Python was surely one of the leader-ranked existences in the Misty Forest.
Intimidating all beasts was a simple matter to the Snow Python.
Thus, because the two little pythons possessed the aura of the Snow Python, the Savage Tiger naturally didn't dare act rashly.
It has to be said that the luck of Duan Ling Tian's group was quite good.
During the entire journey hurrying atop the large trees, they didn't meet any terrifying bird-type fierce beasts.
Although the two little pythons bumped into a few mammal-type fierce beasts, they were all threatening but not dangerous encounters, and the Snow Python's aura frightened those fierce beasts.
Everywhere they passed, all beasts submitted themselves.
If he didn't see it for himself, Duan Ling Tian wouldn't dare believe all this to be true.
Eventually, under the lead of the little pythons, Duan Ling Tian's group arrived at the deepest area of the Misty Forest.
Suddenly, a loud sound echoed from afar, causing the ground to quake and hills to tremble.
The large trees beneath Duan Ling Tian's group shook slightly, but they stabilized themselves with great difficulty.
The area in front of them suddenly cleared up.
A shocking scene appeared before their eyes.
Ahead, on a vast empty space.
A gigantic python that was fully snow white and was twenty or thirty meters long was battling a grey-clothed old man.
The python's body was smeared with blood stains, obviously having suffered considerable injuries.
The old man was also in a sorry state, and his aura was in disorder.
The old man's gaze turned cold as he abruptly lifted his hand.
The three-foot-long blade flickered with a dazzling brilliance.
Instantly, a wisp of sword qi condensed into form, accompanying the three-foot-long blade as it was waved out, piercing through the air as it flashed straight towards the gigantic python.
At the same time, the force of heaven and earth shook above the old man and a thick, white mist condensed, transforming into numerous ancient mammoth silhouettes...
At least a few hundred!
The gigantic python's tail flashed out as if transforming into a white bolt of lightning. Its tail was covered in a layer of force that seemed similar to white mist as it collided with the sword qi.
Once again a few hundred ancient mammoth silhouettes appeared above the gigantic python, drawing upon the forces of wind and lightning.
The sword qi dissipated and white mist fell.
The man and python were equally matched.
"Origin Energy discharge...Nascent Soul Stage powerhouse!"
Li Fei face was drenched in sweat and her breath become slightly hurried.
Only a Nascent Soul Stage powerhouse was capable of discharging Origin Energy.
Suddenly, Duan Ling Tian seemed to have noticed something. His face turned slightly grim as he flew down.
Spirit Serpent Movement Technique!
Before the two little pythons who didn't understand things rushed into the battlefield, he caught up to them and grabbed them with his hands.
The two little pythons had eyes filled with anxiousness.
"Little guys, I know you're worried, but if you go in, it will only cause your father to be distracted."
Although he didn't know if the little pythons would understand, Duan Ling Tian still explained it to them.
The two little pythons restlessly watched the nearby python and man that were battling.
Meanwhile, Ke Er and Li Fei came down as well.
They arrived beside Duan Ling Tian and concealed themselves behind a large tree together.
"Snow Python, instead of hibernating properly, you came out and killed six of my He Clan Origin Core disciples, causing my He Clan's vitality to be injured...Today, I, He Zu Dao, will certainly kill you. I will then shower the souls of my He Clan disciples with your blood!"
The grey-clothed old man's sword flashed like lightning as he battled the Snow Python; his voice was cold and indifferent.
"He Zu Dao!"
Li Fei exclaimed in a low voice as her eyes flashed with a cold light.
"You know of him?"
Duan Ling Tian asked curiously.
"I heard my grandfather speak of him. He's the Supreme Elder of Aqua Mist City's He Clan, and a formidable Nascent Soul Stage powerhouse...I didn't expect that he would actually move out to take revenge for his He Clan's disciples!"
Li Fei's tone was slightly more hurried.
Aqua Mist City's He Clan?
Only now did Duan Ling Tian think of the news that spread about a while back. The few Origin Core martial artists that were killed by the Snow Python were supposedly from Aqua Mist City's He Clan.
Bang! Bang! Bang! Bang! Bang!
The battle continued.
Duan Ling Tian's group was dazed as they watched.
He Zu Dao's and the Snow Python's speed was just too swift.
"Looks like if I want to kill you today, I must pay a price... Being able to die under this inscription can also be considered your good fortune!"
He Zu Dao's cold and indifferent voice was mixed with boundless confidence.
He directly flashed towards the Snow Python, moving towards its bloody mouth.
He Zu Dao's voice was cold as ice. The three-foot-long blade in his hand abruptly glowed with a layer of blood qi as it flew out and entered the Snow Python's bloody mouth.
Duan Ling Tian's expression turned grim.
He recognized the inscription on He Zu Dao's Spirit Weapon.
A loud noise sounded as blood burst forth from below the Snow Python's head.
A terrifying force was spreading through the Snow Python's entire body. Strands of blood shot out from every corner of the Snow Python's body, causing it to feel extreme pain and go completely berserk.
This was also its last struggle before death.
Whoosh! Whoosh! Whoosh! Whoosh! Whoosh!
The berserk Snow Python swept its tail wildly, continuously smashing upon He Zu Dao's body, blasting him down to the ground.
The python's tail descended over and over again, causing the Origin Energy on He Zu Dao's body to be completely destroyed.
His aura was dispirited and on the verge of death.
Only after the Snow Python's enormous body finally smashed onto the ground did the seriously injured He Zu Dao show a smile.
He had succeeded!
Exchanging the life of the Snow Python for himself being seriously injured, it was worth it.
As long as he slightly gathered his breath, he could withdraw a Grade Seven Gold Injury Pill and recover his injuries.
The two little pythons broke away from Duan Ling Tian's control the moment the Snow Python's body smashed to the ground, flashing towards the Snow Python.
They arrived in front of the Snow Python and crossed eyes with it. Their eyes gleamed with tears.
After the two little pythons appeared, the Snow Python's cold and emotionless completely melted...
Transforming into strands of doting.
Being able to see its children before it died, it didn't have any regrets.
At this moment, Ke Er and Li Fei had arrived before the Snow Python. Ke Er took the little white python in her hand as she gently said to the Snow Python, "We'll take good care of them."
The Snow Python's eyes emitted a trace of gratitude before they slowly dimmed down.
The two little python's eyes flickered with the gleam of tears, slowly becoming wet.
The seriously injured He Zu Dao who was far away heard their voices and his face turned grim.
The current him was extremely weak, so even an ordinary person was capable of killing him...
He quickly noticed that a violet-clothed youth had arrived in front of him.
His gaze descended upon the Li Clan crest on the chest of the youth.
"You're a member of Aurora City's Li Clan? I'm good friends with your Li Clan's Supreme Elder Li Qiu. Hurry up and feed me the medicinal pill in my hand for me to consume... I will properly reward you; whatever you want, I'll give it to you."
He Zu Dao's tone was slightly hurried, as if deeply afraid that the youth would attack him.
Presently, he didn't even have the strength to lift a hand.
Duan Ling Tian lowered his head and looked.
On He Zu Dao's palm, a jade green medicinal pill appeared out of thin air.
His eyes abruptly shone.
It wasn't because of being shocked by the medicinal pill.
Although a Grade Seven Gold Injury Pill was valuable, he inherited the memories of the Rebirth Martial Emperor after all, so he didn't consider a Grade Seven Gold Injury Pill to be worthy of his notice.
His attention descended upon the simple ring on He Zu Dao's finger.
He discerned it to be a Spatial Ring.
The Spatial Ring was different from a normal ring. It was a type of marvelous ring that contained a space within, able to contain items conveniently.
On Cloud Continent, only a weapons craftsmen at grade seven or above was capable of refining a Spatial Ring.
Even the Li Clan's Patriarch didn't own a Spatial Ring.
Maybe only the Li Clan's Ancestor had one.
Squatting down, Duan Ling Tian took the Grade Seven Gold Injury Pill in his hand.
He Zu Dao's eyes flickered with a light of anticipation.
Duan Ling Tian's eyes narrowed as he asked, "If I let you consume this medicinal pill, are you willing to remove your ownership of the Spatial Ring and gift it to me?"
Once a Spatial Ring was dripped with one's blood, it formed an ownership, meaning only the owner would be able to use it.
Unless the owner removed the ownership of his own free will, or the owner died, others wouldn't be able to use the Spatial Ring.
Instantly, He Zu Dao's pupils constricted.
The most valuable item on him was undoubtedly the Spatial Ring...
His breathing became hurried and a killing intent flashed in his eyes.
In the end, he painstakingly eased up the agitation in his heart.
"Gift... I'll gift it."
He Zu Dao agreed.
Who was Duan Ling Tian?
A man who lived through battlefields. How could he not have noticed the killing intent that flashed in He Zu Dao's eyes.
Duan Ling Tian sneered in his heart as he place his hand on his waist, touching the hilt of his Violet Meteorite Flexible Sword.
Just when he was preparing to kill He Zu Dao and seize his Spatial Ring.
"Don't believe him!"
Li Fei walked over.
Duan Ling Tian was dazed.
"He Zu Dao can't be trusted. Sixty years ago, he even killed his companion who went out on adventures with him. He killed him without hesitation just for a Spirit Weapon," Li Fei said.
"You... Who are you..."
He Zu Dao's pupils constricted.
This secret was something that in the entire world, only he should know.
"Maybe you didn't know, but one of the people you killed that year wrote down a blood letter before death and concealed it within his personal belongings... That person was the father of my grandfather... You probably won't forget him for your entire lifetime."
Li Fei's eyes emitted a dense hatred.
Glancing at the Li Clan crest on Li Fei's clothes, He Zu Dao's breathing became rapid.
"Looks like you've guessed it."
Li Fei sneered.
"So it turns out that you killed my future wife's great grandfather? You can only blame yourself for being unfortunate..."
Duan Ling Tian's face had a fiendish smile.
This was a timely opportunity for him to make use of.
His Violet Meteorite Flexible Sword soundlessly entered He Zu Dao's chest, piercing through his heart.
