Translator: EndlessFantasy Translation Editor: EndlessFantasy Translation
A loud explosion reverberated when Bai Yu Hai and Tong Shan’s palms met.
The energies collided and create a deafening explosion that shocked one to the core. A terrifying energy swept out from the two Martial Monarch powerhouses’ attacks.
In the next second, a gust of invincible airwave swept in every direction with the force of their collision in the center. The airwaves transformed into gusts of magnificent and strong wind.
All the flowers and trees in the Valley were uprooted, and it was in a state of disarray.
The two Martial Monarch powerhouses, Bai Yu Hai and Tong Shan, remained unmoved. Their abilities were at the same level and neither one of them was willing to take a step back.
“Tong Shan!” At this moment, the gray-clad old man spoke, “You should let Zuo Yue finish what he was going to say… What’s the point of you acting up now? Are you able to avenge your direct disciple by acting like this?”
Tong Shan heard what he said and suppressed his rage. At the same time, he stepped away from Bai Yu Hai.
“Zuo Yue, you may speak.” Tong Shan took a deep breath before he spoke to Zuo Yue who was being shielded by Bai Yu Hai.
Zou Yue was relieved when saw Tong Shan no longer had the intention to attack him. He then recounted his story, including the deaths of the brothers, Lei Zhong and Lei Jun.
Tong Shan became even angrier when he found out from Zuo Yue that Lei Jun was dead as well.
Apart from being his direct disciple, Lei Zhong’s younger brother by blood, Lei Jun, was also the direct disciple of the Sect Leader of Izumo Sect.
Tong Shan was the one who brought Lei Jun here. Now that he was killed in the Martial Emperor’s secret treasure, how could he explain this to the Sect Leader when he returned to Izumo Sect?
Although the Sect Leader of Izumo Sect would have to give him some semblance of respect due to his high position in the sect and the Sect Leader would not blame him for Lei Jun’s death, he could not forgive himself for this.
“They were killed by the same person!” Zuo Yue said firmly just when Tong Shan’s rage reached its peak.
“Who is it?!” When Tong Shan heard what Zuo Yue said, his eyes narrowed. He was so angry, it felt like his eye sockets were going to explode. His voice was so cold as though it came from a thaw hole.
“Xu Qing… was also killed by that person!” Zuo Yue did not answer Tong Shan’s question. Instead, he looked at the gray-clad old man who stood at the side. He was Feng Tong, the Martial Monarch powerhouse of North Nether Sect.
Feng Tong could no longer maintain his calm after he heard what Zuo Yue said. His expression changed, and his rage burned. “Who’s that person?!”
Although Xu Qing was not his direct disciple, he was a disciple of his direct disciple. His direct disciple was the current Sect Leader of North Nether Sect, and Xu Qing was his grand-disciple. And now he was told his grand-disciple had been killed?
“His name’s Duan Ling Tian!” Zuo Yue enunciated every word carefully. His eyes gleamed coldly, he had successfully provoked the two Martial Monarch powerhouses.
‘Duan Ling Tian, you’ll still die even if you come out of the Martial Emperor’s secret treasure alive!’ Zuo Yue thought to himself angrily.
In Zuo Yue’s opinion, it was impossible for Duan Ling Tian to survive now that he was targeted by two Martial Monarch powerhouses.
“He entered the Martial Emperor’s secret treasure from the other entrance. He’s a disciple from a third-rate force, the Five Element Sect, in the eastern district of the northern desert…” Zuo Yue revealed everything he knew, but he withheld Duan Ling Tian’s public announcement of his departure from Five Element Sect.
“Five Element Sect?” Bai Yu Hai who stood at the side was shocked when he heard Zuo Yue’s words.
There was a monstrously talented young powerhouse who had appeared in the Five Element Sect many years ago. That was how he knew about the Five Element Sect.
As soon as he found out the two most outstanding young disciples from Izumo Sect and North Nether Sect were killed, he no longer blamed his direct disciple, Zuo Yue, for not obtaining any Profundity Fragments for Anicca Sect.
Based on what Zuo Yue had said, he was lucky that he was still alive!
At this moment, even Bai Yu Hai who was a Martial Monarch powerhouse could not help but feel fortunate on behalf of his disciple.
“Duan Ling Tian? Five Element Sect? I, Tong Shan, will destroy that sect for killing my direct disciple!” Tong Shan lifted his head suddenly and shouted loudly at the sky.
Tong Shan’s voice reverberated, and a sound wave swept up to the sky. It killed a couple of unlucky birds that happened to fly by. The birds’ carcasses fell from the sky.
Although Feng Tong did not shout from the bottom of his lungs like Tong Shan did, there was cold gleam sparkling in the depth of his eyes. It was as though he was about to devour anyone he saw.
His hatred towards that Five Element Sect’s disciple Duan Ling Tian, whom he had never met before, was not any lesser than Tong Shan.
Naturally, Duan Ling Tian was oblivious to what was happening outside Entrance No. 1.
Duan Ling Tian was unaware that he was currently targeted by two Martial Monarch powerhouses. Both of them wanted to take his life.
Soon, Duan Ling Tian returned to the spacious platform under Entrance No.2 at the end of the stone staircase. There were Illusory Formations hidden in the black mist surrounding the platform.
Duan Ling Tian stood on the platform and ignored all the disciples from Blade Sect, Empyrean Temple, and Emotion Severing Sect around him who were leaving one after another. He would only smile whenever he saw Five Element Sect’s disciples passing by.
“Senior Brother Ling Tian!”
“Senior Brother Ling Tian!”
Although Duan Ling Tian had announced his departure from the Five Element Sect, the disciples of the sect still treated him as their Senior Brother and idol.
The idol who singlehandedly killed the most powerful young man from a second-rate force!
There was never such a monster in the Five Element Sect’s history.
Duan Ling Tian waited quietly. Finally, the person he had been waiting for appeared.
A silhouette that looked like a fire elf appeared before his eyes. “Big Brother Duan.”
“Tian Wu,” Duan Ling Tian responded. He smiled when he saw her. That person was Feng Tian Wu.
Her current ability far exceeded Huang Daniu, Su Li, and Zhang Shou Yong. That was why Duan Ling Tian was not surprised she was the first one who arrived.
Soon, Huang Daniu, Su Li, and Zhang Shou Yong walked out of the Illusory Formation one after another. They then gathered around Duan Ling Tian and Feng Tian Wu.
“Let’s go.” Since everyone had arrived, Duan Ling Tian and the others did not stay there any longer. They walked up the stone staircase and flew toward the highest platform like bolts of lightning.
Soon after, they arrived at the top of the platform.
‘Whoosh! Whoosh! Whoosh! Whoosh! Whoosh!’
Duan Ling Tian and the others used the platform as leverage and flew out of the Martial Emperor’s secret treasure one by one. They finally appeared in the vast valley outside of Entrance No.2.
Duan Ling Tian and the three others caught everyone’s attention as soon as they appeared, particularly Duan Ling Tian.
More than 90% of the people present were looking at him.
“Duan Ling Tian’s out!”
“From what I know, Duan Ling Tian’s the only one who obtained the Profundity Fragment out of everyone who entered from Entrance No.2!”
“Five Element Sect’s in luck this time.”
Apart from Five Element Sect’s disciples, a group of disciples from Blade Sect, Empyrean Temple, and Emotion Severing Sect could not help but mutter to each other when they looked at Duan Ling Tian.
Although there was envy in their voices, none of them were jealous because they knew Duan Ling Tian depended on his powerful ability to obtain and hold on to the Profundity Fragment.
If that was not the case, Duan Ling Tian would not have been able to hold on to the Profundity Fragment even if he was lucky enough to obtain it.
“Sect Leader, Peak Master.” Duan Ling Tian left as soon as they exited. He arrived before the Sect Leader of Five Element Sect, Guo Chong, and Peak Master of Wood Peak, Qi Yu. A fragment sparkling with purple energy appeared as he lifted his arm.
It was the Third Level Monarch Stage Thunder Profundity Fragment!
Duan Ling Tian had previously obtained the Thunder Profundity Fragment from the Sword Monarch Treasure.
Ever since he traded the Eighth Level Monarch Stage Thunder Profundity Fragment with Peng Bao, this piece of Profundity Fragment had become dispensable to him.
He had decided to give this to the Five Element Sect, and it could be considered as him returning the favor for the training the sect had given him throughout the years.
“Great, great!” Guo Chong took the Concept Fragment Duan Ling Tian passed him as senior officials from the other sects looked on with fire in their eyes. He laughed sincerely and joyfully.
As a Peak Void powerhouse, he had comprehended two types of Ninth Level Void Transformation Concepts, and one of them was the Thunder Concept.
That meant he could use the Thunder Profundity Fragment Duan Ling Tian had given him.
With the help of the Thunder Profundity Fragment, he would be able to successfully comprehend the Thunder Profundity soon. It would allow him to break through to the Martial Monarch Stage and become a Martial Monarch powerhouse.
“Congratulations, Sect Leader.” Qi Feng was the first to congratulate Guo Chong.
“Congratulations, Sect Leader.” At this moment, the other three Peak Masters, including Cha Bai the Fire Peak Master, congratulated Guo Chong one after another.
“Congratulations, Sect Leader.” The group of Five Element Sect’s disciples who had survived was next to congratulate Guo Chong.
Soon after, Guo Chong put the precious Thunder Profundity Fragment away. He looked at Duan Ling Tian and asked solemnly, “Duan Ling Tian, are you serious about leaving the Five Element Sect?”
The others were reminded by the announcement Duan Ling Tian had earlier.
Duan Ling Tian had invited a disaster of catastrophic proportion to the third-rate force they were in when he obtained the Profundity Fragment in the Martial Emperor’s secret treasure.
Duan Ling Tian killed the two most powerful disciples from Izumo Sect, a second-rate force in the northern desert.
The two young Izumo Sect’s disciples were undoubtedly the future pillar of support for their sect, but they were killed by Duan Ling Tian.
How could Izumo Sect not be angry?
“Yes,” Duan Ling Tian responded after he nodded. He did not deny it when faced with Guo Chong’s questioning.
When he admitted to killing Lei Jun, and when he killed Lei Zhong, every young powerhouse present undoubtedly witnessed it.
“Duan Ling Tian, will you reconsider your decision? Perhaps we can think of a solution,” Guo Chong said as he frowned.
He could not easily let go of a great hero who made a significant contribution to the sect such as obtaining a Profundity Fragment for the sect.
Qi Feng who was standing at the side said calmly, “I’ve got an idea.”
When everyone’s attention was on Qi Feng, Duan Ling Tian said determinedly, “Sect Leader, Peak Master…I’ve made up my mind! Let’s just leave the matter as it is.” Duan Ling Tian made his determination apparent with the words he had spoken.
