Book 7 Chapter 27 The Mother of Blue Luan
In the distant past, a Blue Luan had once emerged from within the land of the Nine Prefectures. But ever since then, a very very long time had already passed without a trace of another Blue Luan reappearing within the land of the Nine Prefectures.
The Divine Bird ‘Blue Luan’ was extremely rare.
It also has a mother?
“I have also seen many demonic beasts, but it seems I still have yet to to see a mother and child together.” Teng Qingshan smiled and sighed, Hearing this, Li Jun pursed her lips. Her nose wrinkled slightly, as a cute dimple appeared on the corner of her mouth: “Big Brother Teng, just because you haven’t seen any may not mean that there are none. It just means you have seen extremely few demonic beasts.”
Teng Qingshan saw Li Jun’s expression, it was remarkably similar to the look that Little Cat would have when she was acting gracefully in his previous life.
“Oh.” Teng Qingshan immediately sobered up and came over, “In that case, let it go ask it’s mother then.”
“Ok.” Li Jun’s sensitive mind perceived that that there was something strange about Teng Qingshan’s expression just now; this caused her heart to sweeten and her face to redden. She faced the Blue Luan that was to the side and produced a sound that the Blue Luan responded to.
“Big Brother Teng, the Blue Luan asked whether or not we want to take a look at its mother.” Li Jun stated.
Teng Qingshan knitted his brows as he considered the option. When the Blue Luan was fully grown, it would be at least at the Golden Dan Innate Realm. As for the Blue Luan’s mother, what kind of strength would it have? Teng Qingshan would not be too surprised if it was at the level of an Emptiness Realm demonic beast! However, he would have no ability to resist in the slightest when facing an Emptiness Realm demonic beast..
Teng Qingshan was not very fond of the fact that he had no ability to resist.
“Let’s go, Big Brother Teng. Don’t you want to know what the Divine Bird Blue Luan’s mother is like?” Li Jun’s pupils were gleaming in expectation; she was very fond of demonic beasts and would naturally wish to meet the mother of the Divine Bird Blue Luan, “Big Brother Teng, I think the Blue Luan’s mother would be unlikely to face us with hostility. If there was hostility, with the flying speed of the Blue Luan’s mother, we would not be able to escape even if we wanted to! We might as well go and have a look.”
Teng Qingshan listened to everything and couldn’t help but nod.
Above the ocean, the Divine Bird Blue Luan’s flying speed far exceeded a Whole Gale Eagle’s! If the other party were to truly attack, Teng Qingshan’s side would truly be unable to escape.
“Okay then, let’s go see what the Blue Luan’s mother is like!” Teng Qingshan laughed out loud.
Li Jun’s face revealed a happy expression. After she told the Blue Luan, the Blue Luan immediately lifted both of its wings in excitement.
“Screech~Screech~~~” Li Jun commanded the Whole Gale Eagle that was not far away.
“Big Brother Teng, I told Little Grey that it can stay to guard the tungsten wooden boat. Right now we should go together with the Blue Luan.” Li Jun smiled. Teng Qingshan held onto the Reincarnation Spear as he smiled and nodded. At this time, a sound reverberated alongside the Divine Bird Blue Luan as they walked into the deeper areas of the island.
The Divine Bird Blue Luan was relatively thin; it’s back was not broad, and although it could carry people, it could barely seat one person.
If both Teng Qingshan and Li Jun were to mount it, Teng Qingshan would have to carry Li Jun.
“The Blue Luan will lead the way ahead.” Li Jun walked happily with Teng Qingshan alongside her, with the Blue Luan leading to enter deep within the deserted island.
The deserted island was extremely tranquil.
They couldn’t see any wild animals as they advanced within the forest, not even the slightest trace of movement. After Teng Qingshan and the others walked for a long time along the undulating hills, they soon arrived within an empty valley. Fiery-colored large trees that were thick and solid grew all over the valley, with the tree leaves being just as fiery in color.
On top of each large tree was a single huge bird’s nests, some of them housing several Ardent Flamebirds.
Teng Qingshan, Li Jun and the Blue Luan finally arrived at their destination.
A sharp sound was emitted from within the forest in the valley and echoed out as several Ardent Flamebirds used their heads to screech from within the bird’s nests on the branches of the trees. Each and every one of them showed hostility. But when they saw the Blue Luan guiding the two humans behind it, these Ardent Flamebirds ceased screeching at once, coincidentally much more well-behaved.
“So many Ardent Flamebirds! Big Brother Teng, what we saw earlier was only a small portion.” Li Jun’s eyes shined in awe.
“The Ardent Flamebirds here...there are more or less just over a hundred.” Teng Qingshan agreed, however his gaze would often linger at the top of the thick and large fiery colored trees, “Blazing Firmiana Simplex! The records mentioned that Ardent Flamebirds will only build nests on top of Blazing Firmiana SImplex trees. It really is so! The branches of the Blazing Firmiana Simplex exceed steel in hardness. Moreover, it is able to resist fire. It’s even slightly more precious than tungsten wood.”
Teng Qingshan gazed at the Blazing Firmiana Simplex.
Li Jun looked at the Ardent Flamebirds, not paying attention to the Blue Luan for a split second.
Relying on two talons, the Blue Luan proceeded to move forward, its long rainbow-colored tail feathers drooping as if a goddess was wandering here.
“Screech~~” The Blue Luan then walked in front of a pool, producing a cry.
Only then did Teng Qingshan and Li Jun become roused.
The Blue Luan continuously called out several times immediately after moving to the middle of the pool. Li Jun turned to face Teng Qingshan, stunned: “Big Brother Teng, the Blue Luan said that her mother is in another valley. The climb is very difficult, so it would be easier to get there through the the pool. It asked us to follow it.”
“Haha.” Teng Qingshan laughed, “This Blue Luan could have directly flown over to the valley to see its mother. However In order to guide us, it has to go through the pool.”
“We will go in.”
Teng Qingshan and Li Jun almost simultaneously leaped into the pool. Because Li Jun had the water-repelling pearl, it was easy for her to be in the pool of water. The water-repelling green pearl repelled the water half Zhang around her. Li Jun had placed the Water Repelling Green Pearl in her stomach so that her body would not be drenched with water. Teng Qingshan moved to pull Li Jun’s hand.
Both of Teng Qingshan’s legs were immersed in the water.
“Walla”As the river surged violently, Teng Qingshan kicked his legs and immediately pulled Li Jun with him. Following the Blue Luan, Teng Qingshan swam for a while and soon rose to the surface of the water.
“Screech~~” Once the Blue Luan emerged from the water, it produced a lively cry.
“Big Brother Teng, the Blue Luan said that we have already arrived.”
Teng Qingshan pulled Li Jun’s hand and rushed out from the water, sending up smothers of spray as they arrived the the lake’s shore.
“This is dwelling place of Blue Luan’s mother?” Teng Qingshan inspected the surrounding environment.
It was a tranquil valley with mountains all around as walls. It was very cold on the sea, but in the valley it was warm like springtime with all kinds of blooming flowers. Not very far away were tall and thick Blazing Firmiana Simplexes. In the middle of the forest of Blazing Firmiana Simplexes, there was a large Blazing Firmiana Simplex that was at the very least three Zhang wide; it could be classified as the King of the Blazing Firmiana Simplex.
Strangely though, the thick grand Blazing Firmiana Simplex was very short, only ten Zhang in height.
An enormous ball of flame sat at the top of the grand tree.
“This is--” Teng Qingshan’s eyes were as wide as saucers
“Could it be that this is……” Li Jun was also stunned.
The Blue Luan spread its wings and flew over there while simultaneously turning its head to emit a cry.
“Big Brother Teng, the Blue Luan says that this is its mother and wants us to come over there.” Li Jun’s throat swallowed, her eyes were filled with shock.
Both Teng Qingshan and Li Jun observed the enormous ball of flame sitting on top of the grand Blazing Firmiana Simplex tree. Naturally, all of the feathers on its body were fiery colored. Its giant Divine Bird’s body was four to five Zhang in length, and its closed tail feathers were much longer than the Blue Luan’s tail feathers. However, the giant Divine Bird’s tail feathers were also fiery in color!
All the feathers on its body were fiery, even the feathers that naturally formed a crown shape on its head!
Its entire body was immersed in flames.
“Screech~~ Screech~~” The Blue Luan emitted a low-sounding cry.
Both of the enormous Divine Bird’s eyes gazed towards the two humans on the lake’s shore. It then proceeded to stand and spread out its wings, completely unfolding its tail feathers.
Its body was four to five Zhang long, but once it unfolded its wings, it was actually around ten Zhang in length.
It flew towards Teng Qingshan and the others just like a blazing cloud dropping from the sky.
“A phoenix, the Undying Phoenix from the legends?” Teng Qingshan was wholly stupefied.
“Immortal Fire Phoenix, Fire Phoenix!” Li Jun also stared in a daze.
If the Blue Luan resembled a noble princess, then the fiery-colored phoenix would resemble a noble queen.
In a flash, the Immortal Fire Phoenix flew in front of Teng Qingshan and Li Jun and then landed.
“Immortal Fire Phoenix, Fire Phoenix?” Teng Qingshan distinctly remembered that in the records of demonic beasts, there was a book focused on a kind of demonic beast called the ‘Undying Phoenix’.
The Undying Phoenix: Also known as the Fire Phoenix, it possessed an immortal body. Wherever the Undying Phoenix passed, the earth would be completely scorched. The Undying Phoenix’s blood could even miraculously save a person at the brink of death. It was one of the most formidable Godly Beasts. Not only that, the legendary Grass of Immortality was said to grow solely in the Undying Phoenix’s nesting grounds.
“How can the Blue Luan’s mother be an Undying Phoenix?” Teng Qingshan was filled with astonishment, “And there is also the Grass of Immortality!”
The Grass of Immortality was incomparably precious! It could extend a person’s lifespan by two hundred years! Bearing in mind that even an expert that had reached the pinnacle of the Innate Realm would only have a lifespan of two hundred years, if one’s lifespan were to increase by two hundred years, then the probability of entering the Emptiness Realm would be far greater. Even if one was unable to step into the Emptiness Realm, just by being able to increase the life expectancy would be sufficient to cause the strong experts in the Nine Provinces to become frantic.
The Grass of Immortality was extremely difficult to obtain. The only thing recorded in the books was that the Grass of Immortality might be found where the Undying Phoenix resides in.
As for the Undying Phoenix, it was an absolutely formidable existence!
“I didn’t expect that the Blue Luan’s mother would actually be the Undying Phoenix!”
“The Blue Luan by itself was already difficult to deal with. If it were to enter the Emptiness Realm then it would be even more terrifying.” Teng Qingshan was secretly afraid.
In front of Teng Qingshan and Li Jun, the Undying Phoenix’s enormous body was like a small mountain as its eyes closely examined the two humans.
“Screech, screech~~” The Blue Luan beside the Undying Phoenix continuously called out in joy.
The Blue Luan’s figure looked like an infant in front of an adult when it was in the Undying Phoenix’s presence.
The Undying Phoenix took a glance at the Blue Luan, its eyes containing a trace of love. Soon after carefully examining Teng Qingshan, it also sent out a few calls.
“Big Brother Teng.” Li Jun was gobsmacked.
“What?” Teng Qingshan looked in Li Jun’s direction.
Li Jun replied, “Just now the Blue Lian told the Undying Phoenix that it wishes to leave with us and venture the world. The Blue Luan even told the Undying Phoenix that you are amazing, saying that last time you were weaker than it, yet now you are stronger than it. Therefore it wishes to go with Big Brother Teng together.”
“Also……It mentioned your fist arts, so the Undying Phoenix wishes for you to demonstrate your fist arts once,” Li Jun added.
“Demonstrate my fist arts once?” Teng Qingshan stared blankly.
“Screech~~ Screech~~” The Blue Luan beside it also uttered a cry towards Li Jun.
Li Jun explained: “The Blue Luan said just now that it also wishes for Big Brother Teng to demonstrate your fist arts once so that its mother will feel reassured!”
Teng Qingshan felt a sense of suffocation in front of the Undying Phoenix, feeling as if he was facing an unparalleled blazing tall mountain: “Since the Undying Phoenix wishes to see my fist arts, very well!” Teng Qingshan waved a hand. The Reincarnation Spear in his hand became an afterimage as it flew towards the mountain wall to the side and pierced in between the rocks of the mountain.
