Chapter 1029: The Person that All of You were Talking About
Translator: EndlessFantasy Translation Editor: EndlessFantasy Translation
‘The Crimson Sky Kingdom?’
Duan Ling Tian instinctively frowned when he heard that. At the same time, he looked toward the source of the voice. It was a guest sitting nearby.
The guest who had just spoken was a young man who had an evil appearance. He was extremely feminine when he spoke, he was just like a lady.
The terms that were commonly used on earth, where Duan Ling Tian was previously from, to describe this person would be sissy or transexual!
“Crimson Sky Kingdom? One of the many kingdoms under our Azure Forest Imperial Kingdom?”
“The mightiest powerhouse from the Seven Star Sword Sect, Duan Ling Tian’s hometown?”
There were another two young men sitting around the same table with the young man with an evil countenance. They were shocked after they heard what the man said.
“That’s right. It’s that Duan Ling Tian’s hometown,” the man said as he nodded, his voice becoming more and more feminine. “I bet you all don’t know that Crimson Sky Kingdom’s current crisis is caused by that Duan Ling Tian!”
“The Crimson Sky Kingdom’s current crisis is caused by Duan Ling Tian?” The other two men were shocked.
Those three did not lower their voices intentionally as they discussed the matter. It had alerted the other guests in the restaurant.
“Somebody’s attacking the Crimson Sky Kingdom because of Duan Ling Tian?”
“It can’t be? From what I know, Duan Ling Tian was already close to the Void Interpretation Stage when he destroyed the Azure Forest Tri-Sect and rebuilt Seven Star Sword Sect… Even our Azure Forest Imperial Kingdom’s Imperial Family is afraid of him!”
“That’s right. The Azure Forest Imperial Kingdom aside, I’m afraid there are very little people who could defeat him even in the Darkstone Empire! Duan Ling Tian’s advantage is that he’s young. There’s no reason for the Darkstone Empire’s powerhouses to have any conflict with him.”
“Duan Ling Tian ranked first in the Martial Competition in Darkhan Dynasty previously… Since then, he was known as the mightiest powerhouse in our Darkhan Dynasty!”
“The Darkhan Dynasty’s Imperial Family wouldn’t start a conflict with such a genius… unless he’s nipped in the bud before he grows into his potential!”
The restaurant suddenly became lively.
Every topic of the table had shifted to Duan Ling Tian.
When Duan Ling Tian was just a Seven Star Sword Sect’s disciple, he had already defeated the five most outstanding great young masters of Azure Forest Imperial Kingdom and earned his fame in the kingdom.
Although the people in Azure Forest Imperial Kingdom had heard about him, most of them did not take him seriously.
There were many powerful freaks and geniuses in the history of Azure Forest Imperial Kingdom.
However, many of them died at a young age. Some even had a major decrease in their innate skills when they grew older and finally turned ordinary.
Most of them did not think Duan Ling Tian would remain a freak or a genius for long.
However, Duan Ling Tian became an indirect big slap to those people when he avenged the Seven Star Sword Sect by destroying the Azure Forest Tri-Sect all by himself!
The entire Azure Forest Imperial Kingdom was shocked by the news when it spread out!
The Azure Forest Tri-Sect consisted of three powerful sects which were the Demonic Lotusblade Sect, Origin Convergence Sect, and Snow Moon Sect among the five great sects in the Azure Forest Imperial Kingdom back then.
They destroyed the Mountain Split Sect first before destroying the Seven Star Sword Sect. They were at the height of their power.
Their might was comparable to the Azure Forest Imperial Kingdom.
However, such a sect was destroyed by Duan Ling Tian!
It was said that all three Sect Leaders from the Azure Forest Tri-Sect were killed by Duan Ling Tian.
The person who was called a genius martial artist, who had defeated the five great young masters of the Azure Forest Imperial Kingdom back then, had destroyed the Azure Forest Tri-Sect a few years later. The entire Azure Forest Imperial Kingdom was talking about it.
The news had not cooled down when another shocking news came and swept through the entire Azure Forest Imperial Kingdom. At the same time, it elevated Duan Ling Tian’s reputation to a new height.
In the Martial Competition organized by Darkhan Dynasty, Duan Ling Tian defeated the young powerhouses from Darkhan Dynasty and placed first in the competition.
Since then, Duan Ling Tian was named the most powerful young man in the current Darkhan Dynasty!
Ever since the news spread out, everyone in Azure Forest Imperial Kingdom was proud of Duan Ling Tian since he came from their kingdom.
“Hmph! What do all of you know.” The young man with an evil countenance and feminine voice scoffed when he heard the doubts in the other guests’ discussion.
“It’s not the people from Azure Forest Imperial Kingdom who are targeting Duan Ling Tian. Neither is it the people from the Darkstone Empire nor the Darkhan Dynasty!”
The people present were stunned when they heard what the young man said.
“Could it be people from the other dynasty?”
“Perhaps Duan Ling Tian killed somebody from some dynasty at the Martial Competition of the Ten Dynasties… The people behind the person Duan Ling Tian killed are here to look for him.”
The people could not help but speculate among themselves.
“A bunch of pig brains!” The young man with an evil appearance and feminine voice scoffed and smirked when he heard their discussion.
He continued to say after he provoked the people, “Think with your pig brains… Even if such a person from the other dynasty wants to take revenge on Duan Ling Tian, would he dare to create such a big scene?”
“If the person’s daring enough to cause a scene… Then it isn’t just something between him and Duan Ling Tian. The two dynasties would just disagree and go their own way!” One must admit
what the young man had said made sense. Due to that, their anger gradually disappeared.
“Just tell us who’s attacking the Crimson Sky Kingdom if you know! Stop teasing us,” some of them said impatiently.
“Hmph! I don’t know exactly who those people are…” The young man said slowly after he scoffed.
However, he was interrupted before he could finish his sentence.
“I thought you knew something… So in the end, you’re just someone who knows nothing!”
“How dare you call us pig brains? You’re the one with pig brain!”
“You’re wasting my time.”
Somebody took the lead to mock the young man who mocked them earlier and the others followed suit. They did not hold back at all.
“Although I’ve no idea who those people are, I’m sure… they’re from the Foreign Lands! Also, they’ve yet to destroy the kingdom because they want Duan Ling Tian to return.”
“What they want isn’t the Crimson Sky Kingdom but Duan Ling Tian! What’s happening in the Crimson Sky Kingdom is just a bait to get Duan Ling Tian to return. They’re using Duan Ling Tian’s friends and family’s lives to force him to show himself,” the young man continued to speak as he ignored the people’s mockery.
“People from the Foreign Lands?”
“What did Duan Ling Tian do? Did he sleep with some Foreign Lands’ force leader’s daughter so they’re looking for him?”
“That’s very possible!”
All of a sudden, the topic of discussion among the restaurant guests had shifted to figuring out what Duan Ling Tian had done to offend and bring the Foreign Lands’ powerhouses to the Crimson Sky Kingdom.
Some said Duan Ling Tian took their treasures.
Some said Duan Ling Tian killed some Foreign Lands force’s illegitimate child.
Some were even more dramatic and said Duan Ling Tian slept with some Foreign Lands’ force leader’s wife and daughter. That was why the Foreign Lands’ force leader came to Darkhan Dynasty with his underlings.
As they discussed among themselves, they were completely unaware that the person they were discussing was sitting in the restaurant.
Duan Ling Tian’s lips twitched again and again when he heard the discussion in the restaurant. It seemed like it was not going to stop anytime soon.
However, there was a hint of concern in his eyes.
“Big Brother Duan, could it be the people from Izumo Sect?” Feng Tian Wu could not help but ask curiously as she looked at Duan Ling Tian after hearing everything that was discussed.
“It’s hard to say.” Duan Ling Tian’s eyes gleamed with a hint of coldness and ferocity.
The people who were after him were not limited to Izumo Sect. People from the North Nether Sect and Annica Sect were also after him. It was highly unlikely they would just let him go.
Therefore, it was possible that one of the three second-rate forces was the one baiting him with the safety of Crimson Sky Kingdom.
“There are still five days left! If Duan Ling Tian doesn’t show up after five days, those people waiting for him will start a massacre. At that time, the Crimson Sky Kingdom would be bathed in blood,” the young man with an evil face and feminine voice said.
He licked his dry lips before he said dazedly, “I’m sure it’s going to be fantastic to watch!”
Duan Ling Tian’s expression changed immediately after he heard what the young man said.
In the next second, Duan Ling Tian vanished from where he sat and re-appeared before the young man. He extended his arm at lightning speed and held the young man up by his throat.
“Who… Who…are… you?” The young man’s face turned pale when he was held up by his throat. He looked petrified as he stared at the person who had appeared before him like a ghost. The purple-clad young man had restrained him easily.
At this moment, he had completely dismissed the thought of fighting back.
He knew the fact that Duan Ling Tian had easily restrained him and picked him up meant his ability was far below Duan Ling Tian’s ability.
He might provoke Duan Ling Tian if he had forcefully struggled.
If he was killed like that, he would die an extremely torturous death.
Both of the young man’s friends’ expressions changed dramatically. They realized how terrifying Duan Ling Tian was and immediately retreated since they were afraid of Duan Ling Tian attacking them as well.
“Who am I?” Duan Ling Tian grinned and looked around the restaurant. His eyes scanned each and every guest in the restaurant and enunciated his words clearly, “I’m the person that all of you were talking about.”
As soon as Duan Ling Tian spoke, a clamor erupted in the restaurant.
“He… He’s Duan Ling Tian?”
“I was just wondering when did our Azure Forest Imperial Kingdom has such a terrifying young powerhouse… I’m a First Void Initiation Stage martial artist myself, but I didn’t catch his movements at all.”
“The idiot that Duan Ling Tian’s currently chocking said something like the Crimson Sky Kingdom being bathed in blood would be fantastic to watch, right?”
