"These seven dragon balls are quite unique and look different from traditional dragon balls!"
Since Xiaya, the creator of these dragon balls, didn't have the traditional thinking of the Dragon Clan and adding the influence of his space-time ability, the dragon balls appeared extraordinarily refined and looked different.
Xiaya looked at the dragon balls in his hand and faintly smiled. He wasn't the least bit bothered. As long as their function was similar, then, appearance was only secondary!
He placed the seven dragon balls on the ground, and they, after reacting to each other, immediately flickered and lit up.
"Lafuli, you should summon Shenron. The incantation is 'Come forth, Shenron'!" Xiaya returned to the crowd and instructed Lafuli who had a curious expression on her face. The incantation Xiaya had set up was in the language of his previous life.
Since the creator of dragon balls needed to maintain the existence of dragon balls, they couldn't summon Shenron directly.
It was here the question comes about the number of times dragon balls should be used. On one hand, the existence of dragon balls balances out the negative energy in the universe and creates miracles; on the other hand, they disturbs the natural order to a certain extent. Therefore, dragon balls had some limits on how much they should be used.
Once dragon balls fulfill a wish, there would be a period of adjustment. At that time, they would turn into ordinary stones because their energy had been exhausted. They would only revert back to being dragon balls after absorbing enough energy.
This adjustment period was related to the size of the planet where the dragon balls were scattered, and also the ability of the creator.
The bigger the planet is, the more energy it can absorb, and the shorter the adjustment period will be. At the same time, if the ability of the dragon ball's creator is good enough, then the recovery time of dragon balls will be shorter.
Regarding this point, the super dragon balls created personally by Dragon God, Zalama, were—without a doubt—the best. They were scattered across two universes and absorbs the essences of both..
Following these is Planet Namek's dragon balls created by Planet Namek's Great Elder. The dragon balls of Planet Namek were very powerful because of the enormous size of the planet, and the special ability of its Great Elder. Next are the dragon balls of Earth which were created by Dende and Kami.
But now, after the super dragon balls, the next best dragon balls should be the crystal dragon balls created by Xiaya. Because the ability of the crystal dragon ball's creator, Xiaya, was sufficiently powerful. After the crystal dragon balls fulfills the wish, they would be scattered across the range of a helix-shaped galaxy; therefore, the energy that could be absorbed would be sufficiently large.
Returning to the topic, as dragon balls are objects that disturbs the natural order. No matter how divine, they are unable to break away from the laws of the universe. If they are used too often, and used for something too great, they would trigger a counterattack from the natural laws. Therefore, it is necessary to use the ability of their creator as a bridge to maintain the existence of the dragon ball itself.
Therefore, dragon balls, generally, cannot be used by their creator to make wish for themselves; furthermore, their use should be limited. Once their use exceeds the limit their creators can bear, a huge counterattack from the universe will be triggered, and this will result in a disaster.
Lafuli nodded and complied. Due to her trust in Xiaya, she didn't think too much and walked enthusiastically to the front of the seven crystal dragon balls, at the center of the square.
She took a deep breath while looking at the dragon balls, which shone with bright lights, and shouted out the incantation that Xiaya instructed her to.
"Come forth, Shenron!"
Lafuli shouted out loud in Chinese language; it was language from Xiaya's past life. No one in the dragon ball world would knew what the sentence means, neither could they use a translation device to analyze the language structure—via words and expressions commonly used daily.
Since she had never spoken Chinese before, Lafuli's tone was a bit weird, akin to foreigners who just learned to speak Chinese, and this caused Xiaya to smile with nostalgia
In dragon ball world, only he understood this "native language".
As soon as Lafuli's voice echoed, the color of the sky immediately changed.
Large groups of clouds floated over from the distant horizon—not dark clouds, but golden clouds.
Soon, the golden clouds covered the morning sun and shrouded the entire Planet Yedola's skies with magical clouds—as if a god about to descend to the mortal world.
Right after that, thunder began to erupt. The deafening bangs of thunder were akin to a war drum echoing loudly—gradually transmitting from far away!
At the same time, the dragon balls, which shone with golden lights, got bigger and bigger; brighter and brighter—in concert with the blue lightning in the sky.
"The summoning scene of these crystal dragon balls is completely different from that of the earth's dragon balls." Xiaya smiled as he commented in his heart.
"Roarrrr!!" A dragon's roar resounded throughout heaven and earth.
Suddenly, the seven crystal dragon balls emitted a large number of golden light rays which then soared towards the sky, before charging, directly, through the golden magic clouds and into the atmosphere. Roar! Another loud dragon roar rumbled outside the planet, and a golden shadow was projected down through the atmosphere.
Xiaya frowned and quietly followed the golden light's trail with his eyes.
He calculated the build of this Shenron in his mind. Looking from here, the Shenron he created seemed a little too big. Hu hu, the shadow gradually become larger. It was as though a huge meteorite was on course to strike the planet, and the golden magical clouds that suffused the horizon were suddenly swept away.
In the sky, a huge silhouette gradually became clear.
Shenron had appeared!
Xiaya whispered in his heart and raised his head. However, the enormous shadow he discovered, blotting out the sun as though it was going to collide with the planet, was only the massive head of the five-clawed golden dragon, and Shenron's body was still outside the atmosphere.
Its head is extremely huge, like an enormous mountain range, and spanned the distance between heaven and earth. If one looked at the golden scales from a high altitude, the scales would seem as enormous as a mountain.
Gradually, the magic clouds were burned away by the fiery aura around Shenron's body, and Shenron's golden body in the distance became vaguely visible.
The gigantic Shenron had a sacred, mighty and noble aura—similar to a Super Saiyan's seething aura. Its physique alone was enough to completely surround a planet.
"That… that's the Shenron carved by Sir Xiaya!" Looking at the huge Shenron, which blotted out the sun as though it was a giant beast from primeval times, Lafuli swallowed her saliva—extremely shocked.
"What divine beast is this? Its so big, and its entire body burns with golden flames; I have never seen such a noble creature before…"
"I heard that this Shenron is something that Sir Xiaya summoned, to help us rescue those sisters who were stranded in the universe."
The elf girls discussed enthusiastically. They were all scared by the enormous Shenron; however, since Shenron's Model was made using the branch of the Mother Goddess divine tree, these girls have a familiar feeling with the celestial Shenron.
Is Sir Xiaya a god? How else could he summon such a holy divine beast?!
Shenron, burning with a golden aura, lowered its head and looked down at the people below. Its enormous mouth exhaled a stream of air, and its booming voice boomed throughout heaven and the earth: "People who have collected all seven dragon balls, speak thy wish—no matter what it is. However, it can only be one!"
Lafuli jolted out of her reverie. With Xiaya's encouragement, she raised her head and made a wish to Shenron—in words that Xiaya had instructed her with: "Great Shenron, bring back my sisters who are stranded outside Planet Yedola, suffering hardships!"
After making her wish, Lafuli proceeded to watch carefully, with an expectant look in her eyes.
Golden-Flame Shenron's blood-red eyes sparkled. It remained silent for a while before saying: "This wish is easy!" Then, immediately, Shenron's eyes glowed red.
As the dragon's eyes shone with a horrifying red light, Lafuli's wish was fulfilled under the effect of the Dragon God's power. At this time, numerous beautiful figures appeared on Planet Yedola. These girls wore crumbling clothing that barely covered their bodies. They had obviously suffered all kinds of grievances outside.
"Thy wish has been fulfilled!"
After the Golden-Flame Shenron finished speaking, it noticed Xiaya and respectfully said: "Mighty creator, I will excuse myself!"
"Umm!" Xiaya gave a brief nod.
The golden magical clouds on the horizon disappeared, and the giant Flame Shenron changed back into beams of light. These beams of light turned back into the seven crystal dragon balls. They were just about to fly toward the universe—their range, precisely, the helix-shaped galaxy.
"This is Universe 6, I can't let you fly away!" Upon seeing this, Xiaya jumped lightly and caught the dragon balls before they could fly away, and kept them in the dimensional space.
After l return to Universe 7, I will release them on Planet Hongshan. The adjustment period of these crystal dragon balls is also one year, and they have to absorb energy from outside to recover.
He then glanced at Lafuli and others—who were hugging and crying below—smiled, turned and used Instant Transmission to leave.
From this moment, on Planet Yedola, besides the mother goddess, the legends of Shenron would also be worshipped.
Xiaya's figure briefly appeared on the Sacred World of the Kai—which was on the other side of Universe 7's membrane—and without stopping, disappeared again using Instant Transmission.
Xiaya had obtained a great harvest on this trip to Universe 6. Not only he could temper himself while searching for the super dragon balls, but he also obtained the ability to create dragon balls and was able to create the powerful crystal dragon balls with the divine tree's branch.
Xiaya's Battle Power had rapidly increased from 700,000 to 3 million in just one year. Remarkably, he also solidified his foundation through both fighting and training.
Moreover, he had surprisingly also obtained a small jar of the Fountain of Youth from the Universe 6's King Kai. Although it was only enough for 20 to 30 people, a mouthful would extend a life for hundreds of years. Xiling and others would surely be delighted.
The thought made Xiaya smile.
Then, in an instant, Xiaya appeared on Planet Hongshan.
He had been away for a year, but no major changes occurred on Planet Hongshan.
However, the number of powerful auras on Planet Hongshan had increased, especially those from the special battle squadron—their strength has been steadily rising. The special battle squadron was established four years ago, and some of its older members—Shaque, and the others—had already become adult and are the core strength of Planet Hongshan.
"Hehe, Planet Hongshan's Saiyans are getting stronger and stronger. Now, they can be the pillar of the race." A wave of accomplishment filled Xiaya's heart upon discerning the powerful auras on planet.
The number of Super Warriors currently on Planet Hongshan was minuscule. This was because 100,000 was an enormous barrier, and only few Saiyans could break through it. For most Saiyans, the Elite Warrior's 10,000 Battle Power threshold was an insurmountable chasm.
Although Saiyans claim that they are a Fighting Race, their overall strength was considered meager compared to others in the universe.
Many races in the universe considers Battle Power of 1,000 quite amazing.
In comparison, Saiyans who have around 10,000 Battle Power, easily stands out, and even the Saiyans of Planet Vegeta's period were more powerful than most of the civilizations in the universe. Therefore, they are a Fighting Race.
However, this didn't mean that Saiyans could breakthrough infinitely; after all, the power of their bloodline is an important factor restraining their growth.
Even if Xiaya imparts the Ki training method to the Saiyans, it wouldn't make much difference at low level. However, the advantages of bloodline would become prominent again, once they attained a high level—above 10,000 Battle Power.
Normal Saiyans could attain Elite Warrior through training, but it was difficult for Elite Warriors to break through 100,000 Battle Power to become Super Warrior.
An people in his past life has said; "Geniuses are 99% effort and 1% talent", and that 1% often plays a decisive role!
There were currently only a few Saiyans, including Xiaya, at the Super Warrior level.
Xiaya concealed his aura and took a walk in a city on Planet Hongshan. The prosperous and bustling scenes made it seem like a civilization had been re-established. Xiaya nodded with satisfaction and proceeded towards Adri's home.
I have not been home for a year; Xiling and the others may not have obediently stayed at his place.
Upon arriving at Adri's doorstep, Xiaya hadn't knocked at the door yet and he sensed auras of three people inside. Two auras belonged to Adri and Rebecca, and the last miniscule one belonged to Xiling's younger brother, Laret!
Xiaya was surprised that Xiling and the others weren't here.
"Knock, Knock", he knocked on the door. Soon, the door opened and a boy, who seemed strong but honest, ran out. The boy was only two years old, and upon seeing Xiaya, he asked with vigilance: "Who are you? Why have you come to our home?"
"Haha, I am Xiaya, your older brother!" Xiaya reached to pet boy's head, out of habit, but the boy ran back inside the house, without sparing Xiaya another glance.
"Father, mother, someone just arrived and claims to be my older brother…" The boy's child-like voice echoed out.
Seeming unperturbed, Xiaya laughed, withdrew his hand which was left hanging in air and immediately entered the house.
Although Saiyan children began to remember things very early and are quite mature, Xiaya has, after all, left for more than a year, and it is normal for Laret to have forgotten him.
"Ah, Little Ya, you are back. Are you done with everything?" Rebecca came out and upon seeing Xiaya, greeted him with surprise.
"Um, it's finished."
Xiaya replied with a smile and then greeted Adri—who was reading a newspaper. He looked around, noting the absence of Xiling and Myers, asked: "Xiling and Myers, why haven't I seen them?"
Rebecca, who was arranging a table, replied: "Since those girls learned Instant Transmission, they haven't been to sit still. Right now, who knows what planet they've ran to again."
"Umm!" Xiaya nodded.
With their current battle power, he had no worries regarding their safety—as long as they didn't provoke any hidden "expert". Not to mention, chances of them running into such an expert in Universe 7 was minuscule.
"Little Ya, your aura seems different!" Rebecca exclaimed as she noticed Xiaya's aura while picking up her son Laret.
"Yeah, Little Ya became stronger again," Adri spoke with a seriousness and confidence.
Not having seen him for an year, Adri's Battle Power had broke through to 100,000. He had become a Super Warrior, only inferior to Xiaya, Xiling, Myers, and Bardock. He was more certain than Rebecca, due to his discerning eyes and Ki perception.
"Hehe, it's like this…" Xiaya proceeded to recount his experiences in Universe 6 to them.
When they learned that Xiaya's Battle Power had already reached three million, Adri and Rebecca were dumbfounded, and it took them a while to respond.
"Three million Battle Power… Three million Battle Power! This strength is unprecedented in our Saiyan race!" Adri was thrilled and his eyes sparkled with a fervent light.
Right from the time they followed Xiaya to Planet Hongshan, Adri had been sure the Saiyan race would develop rapidly, and Xiaya's breakthroughs further increased his certainty. However, he hadn't expected that day to arrive this fast. Just four years after coming to Planet Hongshan, a Super Warrior, with more than three million Battle Power, had appeared among the Saiyans!
Xiaya would easily able to become a Super Saiyan, and as long as he continued to grow, the Saiyan race wouldn't need to fear Frieza and others again! They could rush to East Area and create a place for themselves, like before.
Moreover, as long as the Saiyan's strength accumulates to a certain degree—-that would be the day the Frost Demon race goes extinct.
Adri thought in his heart.
"Right, look!" Xiaya's finger slashed through the air, and seven spherical, gem-like emerald stones appeared which were sparkling with green light. These were the crystal dragon balls in their adjustment period.
"These are the dragon balls I made. As I have just made a wish, they are still in the "stone state". I want to hide them in a special place, so they can absorb the energy on the planet," Xiaya said.
"These are dragon balls?"
Adri and Rebecca took the dragon balls and studied them curiously for a while, and weighed them in their hands. Xiaya proceeded to warn them: "You must pay attention; don't let them be taken away by others. Also, you absolutely can't let slip the information out that Saiyans possess dragon balls."
Dragon balls… these things, which could fulfill wishes, were very attractive. Once the news of its appearance leaked, it would bring about a disaster to the Saiyans.
Saiyans can have such a divine object. This made Adri thrilled.
"Indeed, only the few of us can know about them; we absolutely cannot divulge this information." Mentioning that dragon balls might bring trouble, Xiaya also fully agreed.
Although the incantation for summoning Golden-Flame Shenron was only known to him, those overly-ambitious people in the universe would not stop spying! There has always only been be a 1000 days to be a thief, how could there be defending from thieves for 1000 days.* The most effective way of keeping information about the dragon balls from spreading out would be to limit the number of people who are in the know.
[TL: It is difficult to achieve long-term prevention as there is always a time when you can be negligent.]
The information about the crystal dragon balls was in his hands, and he did not intend on announcing the existence of the crystal dragon balls if it it wasn't necessary.
Next, Xiaya again took out a deep blue exquisite small jar from his dimensional space.
After seeing the jar, Adri exclaimed: "Aiya, this jar is so beautiful!"
"Hehe, this small blue jar is more than just beautiful." Xiaya smiled and threw a heavy bomb. "This is Fountain of Youth that I obtained from Universe Six's Kai. It is said that drinking just a mouthful can extend your life by several hundred years!"
"You can extend your lifespan by several hundreds of years just by drinking a mouthful?" Adri and Rebecca were shocked and dumbfounded.
However, having been shocked previously because of dragon balls that can achieve any wish, seeing the Fountain of Youth, they were still able to keep their expressions under control.
"Umm!" Xiaya picked up the small jar, looked at Adri and Rebecca, and said: "Unfortunately, the amount inside is too small. I roughly estimate that it is only enough for eighteen people!"
Fountain of Youth is a magical spring water that exists in the Yellow Springs of the Underworld. It is said to be the essence condensed from the depths of the Yellow Springs. It can only produce a drop every few decades. This small jar is the result of a thousand years of accumulation. Moreover, Fountain of Youth is extremely special; if you use dragon balls to wish for it, such a wish will go against the laws of the universe and will certainly cause great trouble.
"There are eighteen people's portions, its not few!" Adri said.
Xiaya nodded and said, "I intend to use twelve portions of the 'Fountain of Youth', and the rest will be temporarily reserved for emergency usage."
"Well, that makes sense!" Adri nodded with approval. "So how are you intending to use it?"
"It's like this…" Xiaya told him about his plans.
In fact, the 'Fountain of Youth' he had was not the eighteen portions that he said, but twenty-eight portions. Sometimes hiding something away is necessary!
He planned on taking out twelve portions for the strongest experts of Planet Hongshan to use, so that he can ensure that he will have strong subordinates for a long time. Moreover, it is also a good way to win over the hearts of the people, and make these experts work as his subordinates!
As for who to distribute these twelve portions to, it was actually very simple. Currently, the strongest Saiyans on Planet Hongshan were Xiaya, Adri, and others who belonged to the top most level of Planet Hongshan. Therefore, without thinking about it, these twelve portions would be directly given to them.
There were still about sixteen portions remaining, and Xiaya intends to hold a Martial Arts Assembly, ten years and twenty years later, and give six portions of the 'Fountain of Youth' as a reward to the top three of the competition. As for the remaining ten portions, he didn't intend to use them; this was his private collection.
"That's good, giving 'Fountain of Youth' as a reward to the winner of the competition can inspire Saiyans to train harder!" Adri listened to Xiaya's plan and nodded with approval.
As he spoke, he glanced at Xiaya with an astonished look. Xiaya could plan like this, it was somewhat beyond his expectations. He vaguely felt that Xiaya had become more mature, and was no longer the child who in the past only did things that he liked.
He knows how to give benefits. He took out the twelve portions of 'Fountain of Youth' which would be able to easily win over the hearts of people and create a dozen loyal followers for him.
"But I'm afraid that this is not fair to the Saiyan youngsters of future!" Rebecca doesn't think Adri's thinking is deep, and frowned after hearing him. Being younger meant that training time was shorter, and that there was basically no chance for them obtain a portion.
"Aunt Rebecca, where is there fairness in this world? You have to know that luck is also a kind of strength. There is no solution to it if they have no chance!" Xiaya shrugged with a helpless look. There was only so much 'Fountain of Youth', how would it be possible for everyone to get some.
"What Little Ya is saying is right, just do it like this!" Adri said.
Seeing both Xiaya and Adri agree, Rebecca had nothing else to say. Next, they called Bardock, Brook, Palladi, Alice, Lise, and others to gather together. As the strongest Saiyans on Planet Hongshan, Bardock and Brook were similar to Adri. They already broke through to 100,000 Battle Power to become Super Warrior.
Contrarily, Rebecca had always been in the lead, but because of giving birth to a child her Battle Power had lagged behind for a time. Still, she was same as Palladi, Alice, Lise, and others; at the final threshold.
As for whether they can breakthrough this final threshold, it would depend on their own ability.
"Little Ya, your harvest has not been small on this time's trip!" After landing on the ground, Alice walked over with a hearty laugh, and placed her slender small hand on Xiaya's shoulder.
"Hmm, not bad, not bad!"
At this time, Xiaya's height has already exceeded her, so Alice's action looked somewhat funny.
"Congratulations Sir Xiaya for the huge increase in your strength!" Bardock smiled as he walked forward.
"You know?" Xiaya was somewhat surprised.
"Hehe, this Bardock guy, ever since he came back from Planet Yardrat, he has completely turned into something like a prophet. There were many things that wouldn't be said, yet he would already know it." Palladi said.
Hearing this, Xiaya suddenly revealed an understanding look. It seems that after the curse on Bardock's body from Planet Kanassa disappeared, the ability to predict future was also somewhat strengthened!
"No, this is because the power around Sir Xiaya's body has changed. Plus only with the effect of True Spiritual Secret Art, I was able to speculate. It is simply impossible that I can predict future." Bardock gave a wry smile.
Recently, he consecutively saw the scenes of future, but the scenes he saw at Planet Kanassa have changed. Although the result more or less hadn't changed, the course of the events were truly earthshaking, such that he did not know which one to believe.
"Everyone knows that…" Xiaya pointed to the small jar on the table, and the twelve separate portions of the 'Fountain of Youth' that were placed next to it, inside exquisite glass containers.
"There are a total of twelve portions here, and there are eight people present- one for each person, and from the leftover four, one for Xiling and one for Myers…"
The people present are Xiaya, Bardock, Adri, Rebecca, Brook, Palladi, Alice, and Lise; altogether, eight people. As for Xiling and Myers, who have run over to who knows where with Instant Transmission, both of their portions would be set aside, so there were still two portions left.
No one had any objections regarding Xiling and Myers, after all, they were among the group of strongest people on Planet Hongshan.
The remaining two portions didn't have any suitable person at the moment. Finally, Xiaya made the decision to give one portion to Bardock's wife Gine, and put away the other one.
So that left seventeen portions for other purposes. Anyway, six of them would be used as a competition reward ten and twenty years later.
Bardock was very grateful to Xiaya for giving one portion to his wife. After all, if they were allocated based on strength, then with Gine's weak strength, perhaps she would never have an opportunity to obtain the Fountain of Youth.
"Well, that's it then. I will find time to send Xiling and Myers' portion to them!" Xiaya smiled and unscrewed the glass container containing 'Fountain of Youth' and drank it. It didn't have any special taste, but Xiaya could feel his body transforming little by little.
Lifespan is an intangible thing that couldn't be sensed by the consciousness.
Seeing this, Adri and others also laughed and drank the 'Fountain of Youth'. After that, the several people began laughing and talking about other things.
Milky Way Galaxy, Frieza headquarters.
At this time, Frieza was floating leisurely in midair, looking at the scenery outside the porthole.
"Mr. Dodoria, it seems in these few years conflict has occurred between my eldest brother Cooler and my father because of something! Which side do you think I should be on?"
Dodoria was dumbfounded for a while before laughing. "King Frieza, this subordinate can't make a decision regarding the two Excellencies!"
Frieza clearly didn't care about Dodoria's answer. The corners of his mouth slightly rose, saying: "Father and Cooler haven't had a conflict for many years. But, now a conflict has occurred because of something. I am very curious about what that thing is!"
It can simultaneously arouse Cooler and King Cold's interest, and they didn't hesitate to have a conflict, what exactly could that thing be?
Frieza leisurely looked outside the porthole, his face somewhat gloomy, and his pair of demonlike blood-red eyes flickered with a cold light.
Since Cooler's Armored Squadron was wiped out by an unknown force in the eastern region, although a completely new Armored Squadron was soon once again established, it was nevertheless a huge blow to Cooler's Forces. At that time, Cooler did not go into hiding to quietly lick his wounds, but unexpectedly go into conflict with King Cold without any hesitation. The thing they were looking for is not small, ah!
Frieza really knows too much about Cooler's personality, that if there was not enough profit, he would not take such a big risk.
"Right, Mr. Dodoria, should we expand our Forces?" Frieza suddenly asked.
Frieza's forces were located in the southern region of the North Area. The eastern and northern region were dominated by King Cold and Cooler respectively. Frieza wanted to expand his territory to the center of Milky Way Galaxy in the western region, or further south.
However, the center of Milky Way Galaxy was the location of the Galactic Patrol organization. There were not many experts there, but somehow it was a restricted area for all the Forces.
King Cold once warned him that he was not allowed to expand to the center of the Galaxy, so the idea of advancing further south could only be dropped.
As for expanding to the western region of the North Area, Frieza was frankly not willing. It's not that there was a strong expert in the western region of the North Area that makes Frieza afraid, but that western region was very close to the West Area, and currently the West Area is the territory of King Cold's arch-enemy, King Davidow.
Right now, West Area was very chaotic, and Frieza didn't want to get close and stick his foot into the West Area's territory.
Chapter 173 Frieza's Intentions (Part I)
