"So, when do you usually get silver lightning bolts?" asked Xiang Shaoyun.
"It depends. Some months we get it twice, and sometimes we only get one every few months," answered the wolf king honestly.
"I see." Xiang Shaoyun sank into thought.
"Young master, I thought you had a way to lure lightning bolts? You can give it a try," said Devouring Ghost.
"Yes, I do, but it's only useful for ordinary lightning bolts," said Xiang Shaoyun.
"Natural lightning bolts all have some sort of resonance with each other. Perhaps it will work," said Devouring Ghost.
Xiang Shaoyun gave it some thought before his gaze landed on the lightning wolf. "You should have some unique object here in your territory capable of attracting them, right? Otherwise, the silver lightning wouldn't show up so frequently. Can I know what item it is?"
Xiang Shaoyun was a quick-witted person and, after a short thought, was able to figure out the reason for there to be frequent silver lightning bolts.
Devouring Ghost slapped his forehead and said, "Right, there must be some unique object here related to silver lightning. Young master, you're smart!"
The wolf king's pupils shrank as he answered, "N-no, there's no such thing."
"Hmph. You dare lie?" Jin Wo could sense that the wolf king was lying. He shouted with a ferocious expression on his face, and his boundless demonic aura roiled out again.
The pressure from the demonic aura tormented the wolf king greatly, causing him to quickly submit. "Y-yes, we actually have a silver lightning stone here, which is why we frequently get silver lightning."
"Silver lightning stone? That is an excellent lightning-elemental material," said Du Xuanhao, who had been staying silent.
Xiang Shaoyun exclaimed joyfully, "Looks like it won't be long before I become a King."
The silver lightning stone was a stone that had undergone a huge transformation after bathing in silver lightning, obtaining a unique property that made it resonate with silver lightning. Because of that, places with the stone would attract frequent silver lightning bolts.
Apart from attracting silver lightning bolts, the silver lightning stone also contained a large amount of silver lightning energy. For a cultivator focusing on the power of lightning, the stone was extremely helpful. At the same time, it was also an excellent material for forging lightning-elemental items.
Thanks to the purple lightning bone, Xiang Shaoyun had an innate lightning power within him. Because of that, lightning-elemental materials were extremely helpful to him as well. Under the suppression of Jin Wo's demonic aura, the wolf king was forced to obediently bring Xiang Shaoyun's group to the silver lightning stone.
Soon, they arrived at the lair of the silver-winged lightning wolves. Here, one could see a silver stone as glossy as jade. It was round with a silvery radiance swirling about its sleek surface, emanating an intense lightning power that caused there to be no life within a radius of 100 meters. Even some low-leveled silver-winged lightning wolves did not dare to approach the stone, and they only dared to absorb lightning energy from far away.
Lightning condor king's eyes became burning hot with desire when he saw the stone. He also cultivated the power of lightning, and the silver lightning stone would be very useful in helping him reach a higher level.
If the silver lightning stone was instead placed in his territory, it wouldn't be a trouble at all to create even more condor kings. Unfortunately, that would only remain a wish.
"It's really a silver lightning stone. Not bad at all," praised both Du Xuanhao and Devouring Ghost.
Not saying anything, Xiang Shaoyun started striding step by step toward the silver lightning stone.
"Be careful, your highness. The silver lightning energy is quite strong," reminded Jin Wo.
Xiang Shaoyun ignored him and continued stepping forth until he finally entered the range of the silver lightning stone.
Instantly, countless electrical currents surrounded his body. Thankfully, he was already prepared. He directly activated his lightning bone, letting it absorb the boundless lightning energy creeping all over his body.
Even with the lightning bone absorbing the silver lightning energy, his body still twitched numbly. The lightning energy was no weaker than natural lightning bolts. Fortunately, he was only absorbing the lightning energy from the fringe of the stone's active range. Otherwise, his body would have turned crisp black.
The lightning bone seemed to have transformed into a purple dragon that opened its jaws wide and started devouring the silver lightning energy. Behaving like a starving dragon, it consumed silver lightning energy rapidly, instantly clearing a large portion from Xiang Shaoyun's body, reducing his pain.
With a powerful absorption force, the purple dragon started absorbing the silver lightning energy in the vicinity as well. Instantly, numerous silvery electrical currents wrapped Xiang Shaoyun's body completely.
The silver lightning energy was extremely overbearing, causing Xiang Shaoyun's body to twitch as he howled in pain. One ought to know that Xiang Shaoyun had an extremely tough body that had survived being struck by natural lightning bolts. But just this bit of silver lightning energy was enough to cause him such pain. The energy's power was evident.
But since the purple dragon dared to pull over so many strands of silver lightning energy, it only meant that it had the capability to devour them all. Sure enough, with a roar, the purple dragon opened its mouth wide and swallowed all the silver lightning energy strands.
After absorbing so much silver lightning energy, the lightning bone started transforming again. Lightning energy rippled repeatedly on its surface as the patch of purple on Xiang Shaoyun's spine started growing again. This time, a slight trace of silvery patches could be seen permeating the purple bone as well, and the inclusion of the silver lightning energy further enhanced the innate purple lightning.
At the same time, Xiang Shaoyun's flesh also went through a cleansing, and even as intense pain assailed him, his flesh grew stronger. He stood there motionless, but Devouring Ghost did not appear worried. With a faint smile, he thought, The Xiang Clan's lightning bone is extremely rare. In the past, master had relied on this bone to become the world's supreme overlord. The young master is not strong enough yet, but he still has a bright future ahead of him.
As for Jin Wo, the silver-winged lightning wolf king, and the lightning condor king, when they saw Xiang Shaoyun standing amid the silver lightning perfectly safe, they were overwhelmed with shock. There was enough lightning power to give any King a hard time. Thus, it was quite unthinkable that Xiang Shaoyun could actually stand there safely.
Even after absorbing such a large amount of silver lightning energy, Xiang Shaoyun still sensed a massive thirst from the lightning bone. He thus continued stepping toward the silver lightning stone.
As he neared, the lightning power in his surroundings intensified, and his lightning bone ceaselessly absorbed the energy, placing him in both joy and pain.
"This feels amazing!" Xiang Shaoyun cried out in excitement.
He started sprinting due to his excitement, and before long, he was standing right before the silver lightning stone. A large amount of energy was converging around his body. The lightning bone was still absorbing the lightning energy at a rapid speed, but it wouldn't be able to devour all the energy anytime soon, forcing Xiang Shaoyun to quickly circulate the Heaven Conquering Overlord Manual. He directed the lightning energy into his first star to start enhancing it as well.Previous Chapter Next Chapter
