Legend of the Asura Chapter 45

Chapter 45: Radiant Sacred Dragon’s Tear
“Is there really no way?”  The Heavenly Dragon Emperor had a face like dying ashes as his hands holding doctor Huang unconsciously tightened.

Doctor Huang grimaced in pain, but did not dare say a word about it.  He said in a difficult voice, “This lowly minister is helpless…..Princess Shui Yue’s illness has already reached her bone marrow, this lowly minister truly cannot do anything…..Princess Shui Yue…..it is hard for her to live past tonight.”

“......This one, understands.” The Heavenly Dragon Emperor seemed like he had lost all his strength.  He had a depressed face as he released doctor Huang and weakly waved his hand, “You can all leave, let this one stay with this one’s daughter.”

“Emperor……”

“Scram!!!”

“Yes…..Yes, emperor.  Please forgive this minister’s leave.”  Doctor Huang’s balls almost exploded in fear from the Heavenly Dragon Emperor’s roar and he quickly left.

The Heavenly Dragon Emperor walked in front of the phoenix jade bed with heavy steps and gently stroked his daughter’s pale face, feeling like he had wronged his daughter too much.  If he normally cared about his daughter’s condition, matters would not have reached this point of no return.

“Royal…..father.  Will Shui Yue…..really…..die?”

The Heavenly Dragon Emperor’s hand trembled.  He lovingly looked at his daughter and he forced his lips into a smile, “How could this one’s precious daughter die?  Look at you now, can’t you even speak? This means that your illness will soon be cured.”

“Royal father is…..lying.  Shui Yue knows…...this…..is called the light…..before the dark.”  Her voice was like a weak wind in a deep valley which tugged the emperor’s heartstrings.  He could not resist as his eyes gently closed his daughter’s eyes and tears fell like broken strings of beads from his old eyes.

“Sleep good daughter.  If this one says you won’t die, nothing will happen to you.  No one has ever disobeyed this one’s orders.”

Princess Shui Yue’s aura became weaker as she went into a deep sleep.  It was as if…..she would not awaken again.

“How could this one let you die, you are this one’s only daughter……”

A clear jade bottle appeared in the Heavenly Dragon Emperor’s hand and he carefully opened the stopper.  He took a greedy and reluctant sniff of the smell wafting out…..After a while, he gave a soft sigh. A drop of purple liquid slowly floated out of the jade bottle and that drop went into Princess Shui Yue’s lips.

Seeing the qilin blood slowly dissipate on his daughter’s lips, the Heavenly Dragon Emperor finally revealed a happy and relieved smile.

“This one…..can finally be a real father.”

“Yao’er, is it you?”

Feng Yao’s ingame name was Yao Dreams of Loving Winds, it was a name that was a bit strange.  After Feng Yao ordered Yao Yao to go out, he immediately called her.

The communication device in the game was a band around one’s wrist.  As long as one knew the other side’s name, they could call them and the other side’s communication device would sound out which nearby people could hear.  For private communications, one needed to think of the other side’s name and then communicate with thoughts.

The wristband had another function which was to see the time in reality and in the game.  To put it bluntly, the communication device was a watch that could be used to call others.

“......It’s me.  Big brother, did you leave that special map already?”  Feng Yao’s soft voice was filled with happiness.

“Un, I just did a quest and I couldn’t communicate with others.  Yao’er, what are you doing? What level are you now?”

“I’m level 6.  Earlier I was watching little monsters dange and now I’m doing a troublesome quest!”

Watching monsters dance?  Feng Xiao broke out in sweat.  Were there monsters that could dance?

“Work hard, Yao’er!  The sooner you leave the Beginner Village, the sooner you can adventure with your incomparably handsome big brother!”  Feng Xiao said with a happy smile on his face.

“Un, I won’t fall behind big brother by much…...That’s right, big brother, what is this ‘Appraisal Skill’?  Is it very powerful?” Feng Yao asked like a little dummy. After all, she had not played games before and in her free time, she mostly thought of her big brother.

“Eh…..How to say this.  It is indeed a very powerful skill, but it isn’t related to us players.”  Feng Xiao replied. The Appraisal Skill was the special skill of the NPCs in the appraisal shop, player could not learn it.

“It’s like this big brother, then I won’t do this troublesome quest then.  It’s good I asked big brother, otherwise I would have used a lot of time to learn this useless ‘Appraisal Skill’.  It’s better if I go level up.”

“.....Wait a minute, what did you just say?  Learn the Appraisal Skill? Is there someone that wants to teach you Appraisal?”  Feng Xiao thought he had misunderstood something.

“Un, I received a hidden quest from the village chief and he said he would teach me the ‘Appraisal Skill’ after I finished the quest.”

Feng Xiao: “......”

What did learning the Appraisal Skill mean?  That would be a large pile coins on a large pile of gold coins…..If they could start an appraisal shop, they could only gain without losing.  No investments and only profits. The amount could be imagined just be looking at the terrifying amount of people outside the Heavenly Dragon Imperial City’s appraisal shop.  Especially when they reached the mid and late stages of the game and there were more high level equipment, the speed of earning money would make one’s blood boil.

This damn charm, even NPCs took the initiative to give hidden quests.

“Yao’er, you definitely cannot give up this quest.  This ‘Appraisal Skill’ is one others can only beg for and never get…..”  Feng Xiao quickly explained. He had almost thrown away the pie that had fallen down from the heavens.

“......Un, big brother, then I’ll continue doing this quest.”  Feng Yao never went against her big brother and would not ask why.  The dependence and trust she had in him was blind and solid.

“What kind of quest is it?  Is it very hard?”

“It’s just very troublesome.  The village chief lost an important purple necklace, so he wants me to collect the fangs of 30 monsters so he can create a scroll to summon the necklace back.”

“Purple necklace…..Yao’er, what number is the Beginner Village you’re in?”  FEng Xiao’s voice suddenly became strange.

“It’s number 99999, it’s a very good number.”

“.....It’s very good.”  Feng Xiao scratched the non existent cold sweat.  It really was that village chief, the Purple Jade Clear Heart Necklace he had found for him just three days ago had been lost already.  He still said it was a treasure that was worth more than his own life, wo pei! I think you’re throwing it around like a toy every day.

But the difficulty of this quest was not low.  In the Beginner Village that was short on variety of monsters, who knew how long it would take to defeat 30 kinds of monsters.

Turning off the call with Feng Yao, Feng Xiao thought something and a golden sword appeared in his hands.

He could unlock the Xuanyuan Sword’s second seal now.

The absorption and release of liquids from the Spiritual Jade Bottle was controlled by one’s mind.  A drop of purple liquid slowly came out of the bottle and fell onto the Xuanyuan Sword. It was immediately dissolved and a purple light enveloped the entire sword, shining for around half a minute.

Without any accidents, the Xuanyuan Sword’s second seal was successfully unlocked.  The golden glow around the sword became brighter and the aura released by the sword became stronger as all of its stats increased by a level.

Sealed Xuanyuan Sword: Unknown Grade
Requirements: None
Attack speed: Ordinary
It has recognized a master.  It cannot be traded, dropped, destroyed, or stolen.  
A golden thousand year ancient sword.  Legends say that this sword was bestowed upon emperor Xuan Yuan by the gods to defeat Chi You’s unrivalled divine sword.  It is a divine sword that contain infinite power to cut down demons. Currently in a sealed state.
Seals unlocked: 2/7

Stats: Physical Attack +200, Physical Attack +20%, HP +200, MP +200, four basic stats +20, Luck +20, Accuracy +10%, Critical Attack +5%, 5% chance to block attacks, 3% chance to break weapons, 3% chance to shatter armour, 2% chance of instant killing.

Skills:

Xuanyuan Sacred Flames: Support Skill
Basic Level.  Uses the sacred flames of the Xuanyuan Sword to increase the user’s fighting spirit.  It will greatly increase the user’s abilities for a certain amount of time.
Effects:  Attack Power +100% and Critical Attack +100%.  Lasts for 20 seconds. The user will be in an invincible state for the first two seconds of using this skill.  Can only be used once per day.

Dominating the World: The Xuanyuan three forms.  The Xuanyuan Sword explodes with dominating might and ignores all things in the world, to launch a world defying exterminating attack at the enemy.  
Effects: Single target attack and ignores all defence, dealing 5000% damage.  Causes all enemies within a ten meter range to fall into a 1 second fear that stops them from moving and makes it so they cannot attack.  It can only be used once a day. Because of the user’s insufficient abilities, the user will fall into a weakened state for three hours and HP, MP, attack, defense, evasion, and accuracy will fall by 70%.

It truly was incomparably strong, especially the Xuanyuan Sacred Flames.  The duration had been doubled and there was an extra “absolute critical attack” state!

And Dominating the World had changed from all stats falling down to being able to keep 30% of his power, it wasn’t like only having 10% of his strength remaining like before.  Even if Feng Xiao had 30% of his strength, he was still much stronger compared to normal players that were at the same level as him.

“Big brother Feng, you’re really powerful.  You used only four days to complete an almost impossible quest.  I thought that it would take many, many years before you could complete it.  Wan’er is liking you more and more.”

“How could that be, how could that be, I was just lucky.”  Feng Xiao awkwardly said. Xuanyuan Wan’er’s sweet voice made him unconsciously become “humble”.

However, being able to obtain the qilin blood really was luck and it was heaven defying luck.

“No!  It’s destiny.”  Xuanyuan Wan’er honestly said, “Big brother Feng truly is a chosen person, Wan’er is more and more confident on this.”

“......”

“Speaking of this, Wan’er, what is the way to unlock the third seal?”

The Purple Lightning Qilin had said before that each Xuanyuan Seal would be more difficult to unlock.  The second seal was already this abnormal, so what would the third seal need to unlock. Feng Xiao was a bit nervous after all, if it wasn’t for that strange situation, he would not have been able to find the qilin’s residence even if he reached level 500.

“The third seal requires…...Requires…..”  Xuanyuan Wan’er’s voice suddenly became unnatural, “Big brother Feng, this condition is even harder than the qilin blood, you have to prepare your heart.”

“......”

“To unlock the third seal, you need the Radiant Sacred Dragon’s Tear…..”

Putong!

Feng Xiao’s head almost hit the ground.

“Ascend’s system, I want to stab you…..”  This condition was too abnormal, they were simply making it hard for people.  Not to mention the Radiant Sacred Dragon’s Tear, even a rabbit’s tear was impossible to obtain!  Would they cry if you wanted them to cry?

The Radiant Sacred Dragon, almost every 23rd century game had its existence and it would be the final boss.  In «Rebirth», it was only second to the Sacred Beast Azure Dragon and was the three strongest divine beast with the Giant Golden Dragon and the Demonic Dark Dragon in the Dragon Clan.  

Wanting to find its tear, their head must be kicked in the head.

“.....My little Wan’er, regardless if I can find it or not, how will I make it cry?  Has anyone ever seen a dragon cry?”

“Probably not…..”

Silence……

“.....Wan’er, you better tell me how to unlock the four other remaining seals.”  Feng Xiao weakly said.

“Big brother Feng, I can only see the condition after unlocking the previous seal.”

“Fine then!  No matter what, the next target is finding the Radiant Saint Dragon!  But, it’s a good idea to level up first.”

“Un, perhaps this young master will be lucky again and the Radiant Sacred Dragon will obediently reveal itself like the qilin……”
