Chapter 1008: A Threat
Translator: EndlessFantasy Translation Editor: EndlessFantasy Translation
Feng Tian Wu had trusted Duan Ling Tian unconditionally ever since she knew him.
Just like how it had always been, she did not once doubt Duan Ling Tian’s words neither did she doubt Duan Ling Tian’s ability to protect them during their journey to Darkhan Dynasty.
In her eyes, her Big Brother Duan was the most outstanding man in this world, and nobody could compare to him!
“Let’s go.” Duan Ling Tian looked at Feng Tian Wu and Zhang Shou Yong before they flew away as many who were present watched them leave.
Everyone in the Five Element Sect under Sect Leader Guo Chong watched Duan Ling Tian leave before their eyes.
“Duan Ling Tian…” Qi Yu looked at the purple silhouette far away and muttered, “I wonder if I’ll have the chance to see you again… If we meet again, how much would you grow by then?” Qi Yu’s eyes were filled with anticipation as he muttered to himself.
He believed if he had the opportunity to see Duan Ling Tian once again, Duan Ling Tian would definitely give him a huge surprise!
He was confident about that since he had personally witnessed Duan Ling Tian’s talent and intellect.
“I hope you’ll live well.” Qi Yu’s heart thumped when he thought about the conflict Duan Ling Tian had with the northern desert’s second-rate force, Izumo Sect. However, the tightness in his heart eased after a while.
“Duan Ling Tian’s wise. Since he dared to kill the most powerful young man in the current Izumo Sect, Lei Zhong, I believe he has a plan.”
‘As long as he hides and distances himself from the northern desert… That Izumo Sect might not be able to find him!’ Qi Yu thought to himself.
Qi Yu might not be so optimistic if he knew it was not only the Izumo Sect that was targeting Duan Ling Tian. There were also two second-rate forces in the northern desert, Annica Sect, and North Nether Sect, that were after him too.
“Duan Ling Tian!” The Peak Master of Fire Peak’s face was grim as he watched Duan Ling Tian leave before his eyes. There was hatred in the depth of his eyes as though he was about to devour anyone who approached him.
Meanwhile, Feng Tian Wu and Zhang Shou Yong had caught up with Duan Ling Tian and flew far away. They soon vanished before everyone’s eyes.
As time went by, two silhouettes flew out of the Martial Emperor’s secret treasure.
“It’s Senior Brother Chen and Yi!” Some of the Five Element Sect’s disciples immediately recognized the duo.
They were Nangong Chen and Nangong Yi, the Sect Leader of Five Element Sect’s two direct disciples.
Initially, when they noticed the two silhouettes flying out of the Martial Emperor’s secret treasure, the senior officials from the Skywolf Fort and Sun Moon Sect were a little excited before they realized who they were.
However, they were greatly disappointed after seeing both of their faces.
“What aren’t any of our Skywolf Fort’s disciples coming out of the Martial Emperor’s secret treasure?”
“Where’s Zi Shang?”
The five Vice Fort Masters of the Skywolf Fort could not keep their composure. They could vaguely feel that something was wrong.
All the senior officials from Sun Moon Sect under Sect Leader Chen Feng did not look too good.
None of the nineteen disciples from the Sun Moon Sect who had entered had come out.
At this moment, they had an inkling that something had happened in there.
“The Vice Fort Masters of Skywolf Fort are still waiting for their disciples to come out?”
The five Skywolf Fort’s Vice Fort Masters’ change in expression alerted many disciples from the Five Element Sect, Blade Sect, Empyrean Temple, and Emotion Severing Sect. They could not help but display a strange expression on their faces.
“It seems like none of them knows that all twenty of Skywolf Fort’s disciples who went in are all dead.”
“It’s not strange they’re unaware of it if none of us takes the initiative to tell them.”
The disciples from the other four forces whispered among each other. Their voices were not loud, but it entered the five Skywolf Fort’s Vice Fort Masters’ ears clearly, and their expressions changed dramatically.
All of their Skywolf Fort’s disciples were dead after entering the Martial Emperor’s secret treasure?
“What happened exactly?!” The five of them suddenly looked terrifying.
When they found out what had happened from some of the disciples from the four forces, there was a hint of helplessness in their eyes apart from the gloomy expression on their faces.
It was a sure death for Zi Shang who failed to kill Duan Ling Tian and fell into the bottomless abyss!
Meanwhile, the remaining nineteen disciples were eyeing the Ninth Level Concept Fragments in Duan Ling Tian’s hands and worked with disciples from the Sun Moon Sect and Emotion Severing Sect to attack Duan Ling Tian in an attempt to kill him and obtain the treasure.
Who would have thought the result of the 48 of them going against Duan Ling Tian would be so dramatic.
With one sword, Duan Ling Tian killed most of the disciples from the three forces. Those who were not killed were severely injured.
With another swing of his sword, all of them were killed!
“Duan Ling Tian… Why him?!” If it was somebody else, the five Skywolf Fort’s Vice Fort Masters would definitely hunt the person down and kill him!
However, why was it Duan Ling Tian?
He was the Brother Ling Tian the Little Devil spoke of!
Unless they could come up with a seamless plan where they could kill Duan Ling Tian without leaving any trails behind, none of them would be able to bear the consequences.
Although they were all infuriated, they could only swallow their rage!
However, the five Skywolf Fort’ Vice Fort Masters’ abilities to endure did not apply to the Sun Moon Sect’s senior officials.
When they heard seventeen of their Sun Moon Sect’s disciples were killed by Duan Ling Tian, their expressions changed drastically as their eyes gleamed coldly. It was as though they would devour anyone who approached them.
“Duan Ling Tian! You killed my Sun Moon Sect’s disciples, I want you dead!” Chen Feng shouted. He was prepared to lead the Sun Moon Sect’s senior officials to chase after Duan Ling Tian and kill him to avenge the seventeen disciples.
“Sect Leader Chen Feng, if you dare to leave… The two most powerful young men from your Sun Moon Sect will definitely die when they come out!” A cold voice came out from the Sect Leader of Five Element Sect, Guo Chong’s mouth. His words were dripping with indifference.
“The two Sun Moon Sect’s disciples are the top young men in Sun Moon Sect, and they might’ve obtained Profundity Fragments,” Qi Yu added calmly as he stood aside and watched the senior officials from Sun Moon Sect.
What Qi Yu meant was simple.
‘If all of you dare to go after Duan Ling Tian when the two most outstanding disciples from your Sun Moon Sect come out, we Five Element Sect will not only kill them, we’ll also take away the Profundity Fragments they might’ve obtained.’
‘Whoosh! Whoosh! Whoosh!’
One had to admit Guo Chong and Qi Yu’s threat was effective. As soon as they were done speaking, all of the Sun Moon Sect’s senior officials under Sect Leader Chen Feng had a change in their expressions.
At the same time, they glared at Guo Chong and Qi Yu in rage, but they did not dare to make a move.
Although they were infuriated that seventeen of their Sun Moon Sect’s disciples were killed, these 17 disciples’ lives were not as precious as the two remaining disciples. The two disciples were their Sun Moon Sect’s future pillar of support!
Moreover, just like Qi Yu said, there was a high possibility they had obtained Profundity Fragments from the Martial Emperor’s secret treasure since they were the two most outstanding disciples in Sun Moon Sect.
“Guo Chong, you’re good!” Chen Feng said through clenched teeth as he glared at Guo Chong.
“Stop praising me, Sect Leader Chen Feng.” Guo Chong smiled lightly.
The corner of Zhang Yan’s lips twitched when he saw the Sun Moon Sect’s senior officials did not dare to give chase to Duan Ling Tian due to Guo Chong and Qi Yu’s threat.
Among everyone present, he was perhaps the only one who knew the two Sun Moon Sect’s disciples were dead in the Martial Emperor’s secret treasure.
He knew that because he was the one who killed them!
Naturally, he was not dumb enough to tell the truth.
Although he did not think the Emotion Severing Sect supporting him would be afraid of Sun Moon Sect, he did not want to bring trouble to himself as well as affect the sect that had trained him and gave him the ability he had today.
“Hmph!” The five Skywolf Fort’s Vice Fort Masters scoffed and were getting ready to return to Skywolf Fort as their hovered in the air.
However, they were stopped by a ghostly silhouette as soon as they moved.
It was the Sect Leader of Five Element Sect, Guo Chong.
“Sect Leader Guo, what do you think you’re doing?” The leader of the five Skywolf Fort’s Vice Fort Masters, Luo Fu’s face became somber when he saw Guo Chong stopping them.
“Fort Master Luo Fu, I’m not doing anything… I just want to remind all of you that if you dare do anything to Duan Ling Tian, the day when I become a Martial Monarch will be the day I end your Skywolf Fort!” Guo Chong’s voice was firm and determined.
“You!!” Luo Fu’s expression changed drastically, the same happened to the other four Skywolf Fort’s Vice Fort Masters as well.
They knew very well that Guo Chong was not joking with them!
Since Guo Chong had obtained the Thunder Profundity Fragment, it would not take him long to break through to the Martial Monarch Stage.
At that time, the Five Element Sect would be elevated and become the new second-rate force in the northern desert!
As soon as Guo Chong achieved Martial Monarch Stage, even the second-rate force, Izumo Sect, would have to think twice if they wanted to make a move on them.
“Sect Leader Guo, don’t worry. We’re just returning to Skywolf Fort. We don’t intend to do anything to Duan Ling Tian… About the useless disciples from our Skywolf Fort, it’s their fault that they’re dead! How dare they attempt to kill and take the treasure when they don’t have the ability to.” After Luo Fu spoke in his deep voice, he did not plan to speak further with Guo Chong and led the other four Skywolf Fort’s Vice Fort Masters to fly toward the Ancient Desert City where Skywolf Fort was located.
In reality, they did not dare to do anything to Duan Ling Tian even without Guo Chong’s threat.
Even their Fort Master of Skywolf Fort was fearful of the Little Devil to the extent where they willingly obeyed her. One could imagine how terrifying her background was.
“Sect Leader Chen Feng, I believe you’re a wise man.” Guo Chong looked at the Sect Leader of Sun Moon Sect Chen Feng. Although his tone was calm, there was a hint of threat and killing intent hidden in it.
Chen Feng’s expression changed when he heard his words. He was angry, but he did not dare to say anything.
Duan Ling Tian, who had left much earlier, was naturally unaware of what was happening outside the Martial Emperor’s secret treasure’s Entrance No.2.
“Big Brother Zhang, when we return… Perhaps I’ll be able to heal your wife’s Dantian,” Duan Ling Tian said with a slight smile as he looked at Zhang Shou Yong who was next to him.
What Duan Ling Tian said struck Zhang Shou Yong like a bolt of lightning. He instantly stopped moving in the air as his expression changed.
“Bro-Brother Ling Tian… Are-Are you serious?!” Zhang Shou Yong asked in excitement as he looked at Duan Ling Tian who had also stopped moving.
