Chapter 415: Duan Feng’s Breakthrough
Lin Feng didn’t care about that Xuan level pill, if the Winged Tiger wanted to have one, why not give one to him?
That Xuan Qi layer pill could only make a cultivator break through to the first Xuan Qi layer, nothing more and the Winged Tiger could easily kill multiple cultivators of the first Xuan Qi layer. It could even kill cultivators of the second Xuan Qi layer. Who was more valuable to Lin Feng? A cultivator of the first Xuan Qi layer or his Winged Tiger companion? For Lin Feng, the answer was obvious.
Since Lin Feng had adopted the Winged Tiger, it was considered as one of his friends.
After the Winged Tiger swallowed the Xuan level pill, its eyes started twinkling in a resplendent way, it roared with pleasure. Immediately after, it started walking away with long strides looking extremely satisfied. It also looked amused somehow.
When Lin Feng saw how happy the Winged Tiger looked, he slightly shook his head and immediately left, he had to find Lan Jiao and Duan Feng.
When Duan Feng saw that pill, he was stupefied, he looked at Lin Feng and shouted: “Lin Feng, big brother!”
He had never even seen such a pill, it was too precious!
“Duan Feng, when you have the feeling that you can break through to the Xuan Qi layer, just take that pill, it will help you through the bottleneck. Of course, if you don’t feel like using it and prefer relying on your own ability, just keep that pill for the future, that is alright as well.”
Lin Feng slightly smiled while he spoke. If it had been someone else, Lin Feng wouldn’t have added those last sentences but Duan Feng had the blood spirit of the Imperial Clan, he also had extremely high natural abilities. He had a pure heart and devoted his life to cultivation and it showed, in just two years, he had broken from the Qi layer through to the peak of the Ling Qi layer, he was only one step away from reaching the Xuan Qi layer.
“Duan Feng is not weaker than the so-called high-officials, it’s just that nobody realizes his talent, that’s all.” Thought Lin Feng. Duan Feng did not have any arrogance, he was discreet and a very introverted character. Besides, he had never thought of himself as someone with a high level of talent. He only focused on improving his cultivation and ignored everything else. For those reasons, Duan Feng wasn’t very well known in the Celestial Academy, of course, because of his personality, he could practice cultivation in peace without any distractions, he could focus his entire attention on his cultivation.
Perhaps Duan Feng, relying solely on his natural abilities and tenacity, would greatly surprise everybody one day.
“I will use it. I have the feeling that I can break through to the Xuan Qi layer anytime now.” Said Duan Feng after looking pensive for a short moment which astonished Lin Feng.
“Duan Feng, are you sure?” Lin Feng couldn’t help but ask. When it came to profound pills, after having using a pill. The same pill would have a much lower effect in the future, except for a few healing pills and other pills with special attributes.
Not only did he not need to use it, but it might also affect Duan Feng’s confidence.
“Lin Feng, brother, there will be no problem.” Replied Duan Feng while nodding.
Lin Feng didn’t say anything at first, and then added: “Alright, well, when you start attempting to break through to the Xuan Qi layer, I will protect you.”
“Alright, sorry for bothering you, brother.” Replied Duan Feng who immediately sat down cross-legged which rendered Lin Feng speechless.
His movements seemed so natural and he clearly didn’t think twice, it seemed like he trusted Lin Feng with his life.
Duan Feng’s cultivation was increasing very quickly. He laid some purity stones next to him and then swallowed the pill. He quickly started absorbing the Qi of heaven and earth as he started his cultivation.
Lin Feng on his side, calmly watched him practicing cultivation. Around Duan Feng’s body was a sharp and dazzling golden light, he truly looked like he was a king among men.
“What kind of skill is he cultivating…?” Lin Feng realized that he hadn’t paid enough attention to Duan Feng in the past. In order to break through to the first Xuan Qi layer, a cultivator needed to cultivate a cultivation skill like his Cosmos-Burning Sun, but Duan Feng had never mentioned anything, but he seemed to be very confident in breaking through to the Xuan Qi layer.
“It looks like a very complex technique.” Thought Lin Feng. His cultivation method contained a brutal and yet elegant Qi. That skill was extraordinary. The fact that Duan Feng’s cultivation had increased so quickly definitely had something to do with the skills he practiced.
Around Duan Feng’s body, a storm was becoming visible, it was terrifying. Lin Feng was shocked and also started to sense the Qi in the atmosphere.
“It’s a Di level skill… Duan Feng surprisingly has such terrifying skills.” Lin Feng was astonished and perplexed.
The speed at which a person absorbed Qi was a good indicator of how strong that person was… And Duan Feng was absorbing the Qi around him at an incredible speed. Duan Feng’s skill was incredible. It was at least a Di level skill of lower quality.
Lin Feng’s Cosmos-Burning Sun skill was also a Di level skill of lower quality, how could Lin Feng not be astonished?
But Lin Feng as sure that Duan Feng wasn’t planning to hide anything from him, otherwise he wouldn’t have used that skill in front of him at that moment. Besides, Duan Feng wasn’t the scheming and calculating type of person.
But… Where did his skill come from?
“All I can do is wait until he’s done and then I will ask him.” Thought Lin Feng. He then continued watching Duan Feng absorb incredible quantities of Qi from his surroundings.
Very quickly, Duan Feng was surrounded by a terrifying storm of Qi which was forming into a crystal around him. Duan Feng was in the middle of that crystal and Lin Feng couldn’t even see Duan Feng’s facial traits clearly anymore.
“He condensed the Qi into a solid state and he’s going to absorb and purify it into pure Qi using a liquefaction process.” Lin Feng narrowed his eyes, he had really underestimated both Duan Feng’s skill and talent.
In such a short time, he would be able to break through to the Xuan Qi layer.
A terrifying Qi started flowing through the air at the same pace as Duan Feng’s heartbeat and it then dispersed.
After a short moment of calm, multiple silhouettes started to appear, Mister Huo, Mister Chi, Lan Jiao, Jing Yun and Yi Xue, they were all fixedly staring at Duan Feng inside his cocoon.
Jing Yun’s mouth was wide-open. Astonishment had invaded her beautiful eyes. Duan Feng was going to break through to the Xuan Qi layer already?! He was going to break through to the Xuan Qi layer!?
That was incredible! Since when was it so easy to break through to the Xuan Qi layer!
“It seems like that pill was wasted.” Thought Lin Feng. Even without a pill, Duan Feng would be able to break through to the Xuan Qi layer. It would have only have been a matter of time.
Of course, saying that it was a waste was also exaggerated, at least at that moment Lin Feng knew how extraordinary Duan Feng was.
Immediately after, the Qi formed a liquid and started to penetrate into Duan Feng’s body and pure Qi started to appear around him which pierced through his cocoon of Qi, it was extremely sharp.
He was going to break through, it was about to happen!
A terrifying Qi emerged from Duan Feng’s body. Behind Duan Feng was a black door, that black door was part of his spirit, the sealed doors spirit.
A creaking sound emerged through the atmosphere, sealed doors continued appearing and after the fifth one appeared, it stopped.
Duan Feng surprisingly had five sealed doors, how terrifying!
At the same time, a sharp pure Qi burst towards the skies. Immediately after, Duan Feng opened his eyes. The Qi around his body had been completely transformed into pure Qi. Pure Qi was now glowing around his entire body.
After the sharp light disappeared, Duan Feng saw that there was a group of people who were all looking at him, he was stupefied. He then immediately looked at Lin Feng and smiled: “Lin Feng, big brother, I have successfully broke through to the Xuan Qi layer.”
Duan Feng’s voice sounded innocent and immature, he wanted to share his joy with Lin Feng.
Lin Feng slightly nodded, his silhouette flickered and landed in front of Duan Feng. “Alright, Duan Feng, you have terrifying natural abilities.”
“What are you talking about?” When Duan Feng heard Lin Feng’s compliment, he lowered his head looking shy.
