Chapter 1040: Concern of the Two Martial Monarchs
Translator: EndlessFantasy Translation Editor: EndlessFantasy Translation
All of a sudden, the two Martial Monarch powerhouses faced each other as though they were on the verge of a fight!
The both of them were unwilling to concede since both of them wanted the Emperor Stage Profundity Fragment that Duan Ling Tian possessed.
Duan Ling Tian watched coldly as he stood aside. It was all within his plans for them to fight each other!
However, Duan Ling Tian’s expression changed in the next moment.
He saw the two Martial Monarchs who seemed as though they were about to fight suddenly prick their fingers. Two drops of blood appeared and ascended into the sky before they vanished into the clouds.
“I, Bai Yu Hai, Anicca Sect’s Supreme Elder, vow with the Ninety-Nine Heavenly Tribulation oath that I’ll fight fairly for the ownership of the Emperor Stage Profundity Fragment with Feng Tong after I obtain it from Duan Ling Tian… If I violate this oath, I’m willing to be killed by the thunder penalty!”
“I, Feng Tong, North Nether Sect’s Supreme Elder…”
The two Martial Monarch powerhouses, Bai Yu Hai and Feng Tong, came to a common understanding quickly.
They would obtain the Emperor Stage Profundity Fragment first before they fight for it.
Obtaining the Emperor Stage Profundity would remain as their top priority.
“Bang! Bang! Bang! Bang! Bang!’
Eighteen consecutive deafening claps of thunder broke the silence above Crimson Sky Kingdom’s sky.
It was the confirmation of the duo’s Ninety-Nine Heavenly Tribulation oath.
The explosive thunders made everyone in the Crimson Sky Kingdom anxious. Many of them sat weakly on the ground. It took them a while before they could stand up again.
“Are those thunders?”
“I think so.”
“Could it be Commander Duan is fighting with the four unknown powerhouses?”
“It could be.”
Everyone in the palace had anticipation written on their faces. They were anticipating Duan Ling Tian to win the fight and come back with glory.
In their opinion, Duan Ling Tian was not only the strongest powerhouse in the Crimson Sky Kingdom, he was also the kingdom’s guardian angel.
Duan Ling Tian was the only one with the ability to get them out of this predicament!
It was apparent how highly they regarded Duan Ling Tian. It was to the extent that they were almost worshipping him. It would not be an exaggeration to say that his status and charm was even higher than the Emperor of the Crimson Sky Kingdom.
However, the people in the palace did not know their Commander Duan was facing the biggest crisis of his life. A crisis that could possibly take his life away.
He was a Sixth Level Void Transformation martial artist who was simultaneously targeted by two Martial Monarch powerhouses.
Perhaps he was the only Sixth Level Void Transformation martial artist in the world who would ever encounter such a situation.
Above the palace, Bai Yu Hai and Feng Tong stared fiercely at Duan Ling Tian after they came to an agreement.
There was greed deep in their eyes.
“Duan Ling Tian, hand over the Emperor Stage Profundity… We’ll keep your dead body in one piece!” Feng Tong said calmly.
Although Bai Yu Hai could kill Duan Ling Tian directly with the back of his hand since he was a Martial Monarch and take the Spatial Ring in his hands, he did not dare to do that.
After all, he was not sure if Duan Ling Tian kept the Emperor Stage Profundity Fragment in the Spatial Ring he carried wherever he went.
If Duan Ling Tian did not have the Emperor Stage Profundity Fragment with him, that meant only he knew where he hid the fragment away.
If they killed him, they would lose the only lead they had on the location of the Emperor Stage Profundity Fragment.
They were most unwilling to see that happen.
“Duan Ling Tian, if you hand over the Emperor Stage Profundity Fragment… I’ll forgive you for deceiving me earlier!” Bai Yu Hu said as he glared fiercely at Duan Ling Tian.
Similar to Feng Tong, he was afraid Duan Ling Tian did not have the Emperor Stage Profundity Fragment on him.
He and Feng Tong did not dare to take the risk.
They could kill Duan Ling Tian and obtain his Spatial Ring, but everything would be in vain if the Emperor Stage Profundity Fragment was not in the Spatial Ring.
Duan Ling Tian could not help but grin when he heard what the two Martial Monarch powerhouses said.
Naturally, he knew what they were thinking.
They were worried he did not have the Emperor Stage Profundity Fragment with him, and they might not be able to find the Emperor Stage Profundity Fragment after if he died.
“It’s my honor to die by two Martial Monarch powerhouses’ hands… Please do it,” Duan Ling Tian said suddenly as he closed his eyes. He opened his arms with a smile on his face. The pose clearly indicated he was ready to die.
Feng Tong and Bai Yu Hai’s expression changed when they heard Duan Ling Tian’s words.
The more Duan Ling Tian behaved like that, the more worried they became.
In their opinion, Duan Ling Tian would not be able to remain so calm if he had the Emperor Stage Profundity Fragment with him.
Feng Tong and Bai Yu Hai looked at each other. None of them planned to attack at all.
“Hmph! Since you want to die, there’s no need for my master to do it himself… I’ll kill you on behalf of my master!” A scoff could be heard at this moment. All they could see was a silhouette charging out from behind Bai Yu Hai toward Duan Ling Tian at lightning speed.
The silhouette’s speed did not concern Bai Yu Hai.
He was concerned about the fact that the silhouette had arrived close to Duan Ling Tian and was preparing to attack him.
“Zuo Yue, stop!” Bai Yu Hai shouted immediately, and his expression changed when he saw Zuo Yue poised to attack. Zuo Yue’s Origin Energy ran rampant as his Concept trailed behind like a shadow.
Everything would be over if Zuo Yue killed Duan Ling Tian!
They would not be able to obtain the Emperor Stage Profundity Fragment, and it would be all for naught.
That was why Bai Yu Hai panicked.
“Stop!” Feng Tong shouted as soon as he regained his senses. His facial expression had changed drastically.
He might not be able to use the Emperor Stage Profundity Fragment now, but he might be able to witness the birth of a Martial Emperor if he contacted a Ninth Level Martial Monarch powerhouse on Cloud Continent.
If that happened, he and the North Nether Sect would be allied with the Martial Emperor. At that time, they would be invincible on Cloud Continent.
Which first-rate force or top force would dare to provoke a Martial Emperor powerhouse?
Bai Yu Hai and Feng Tong vanished from their spots in the next moment.
They were going to stop Zuo Yue. Unfortunately, they were too late.
A loud explosion resounded. Bai Yu Hai and Feng Tong immediately stopped moving. They were standing near Duan Ling Tian so they could see everything clearly.
Feng Tong sighed in relief when he saw what happened.
Bai Yu Hai, on the other hand, looked terrible.
Zuo Yue was charging toward Duan Ling Tian in an attempt to crack his head. However, it was his own head that exploded like a watermelon following the loud explosion.
Blood splashed everywhere and rained down like bloody flames. The scene was strangely beautiful.
Meanwhile, Zuo Yue’s headless body fell from the sky and smashed to the ground. His body was nothing more than a pulpy mess of flesh and blood.
Zuo Yue’s body landed less than ten meters away from Izumo Sect’s Supreme Elder Tong Shan’s body. The way they died was exactly the same. Both of their bodies were mangled beyond recognition.
“Duan! Ling! Tian!” Bai Yu Hai enunciated each word fiercely in his deep voice. His eyes had turned red.
The pause between each word seemed to emphasize the rage he felt.
All of a sudden, a milky Origin Energy ran rampant on Bai Yu Hai’s body. It transformed into a blue energy surrounded by purple bolts of lightning and wisps of green energy.
Heaven and Energy whirred above the air and eventually formed the Heaven and Earth Phenomenon.
A total of 6,000 ancient horned dragons’ silhouettes appeared out of thin air as it descended majestically.
“He has the same ability as Tong Shan.” Duan Ling Tian’s heart jolted when he saw the scene before his eyes. However, he remained calm on the surface.
It seemed as though he was enjoying the view as he fearlessly observed the 6,000 ancient horned dragons’ silhouettes. Not only did he not seem shocked, it seemed like the scene before him did not interest him at all.
“If I, Duan Ling Tian, have to die, I rather die by a Martial Monarch’s hand… Zuo Yue is not worthy!” Duan Ling Tian calmly said to Bai Yu Hai who was glaring at him in anger. There was a hint of coldness in his voice when he spoke.
He had defeated Zuo Yue back then, and Zuo Yue could only run away when he encountered Duan Ling Tian.
Due to that, he had never taken Zuo Yue seriously.
Zuo Yue was only looking for death when he attempted to take advantage of the situation to kill him.
“You!!” Bai Yu Hai’s expression changed greatly when he heard Duan Ling Tian’s words. The energy on his body fluctuated wildly as though he was going to attack at any given time.
However, he did not attack in the end.
It was only natural for him to be mad since his direct disciple was killed.
After all, he had trained his direct disciple for more than twenty years. He had treated him like his biological son.
If it was someone else had killed him, that person would have already been killed by Bai Yu Hai.
However, Duan Ling Tian was the who killed his direct disciple. He was the one who obtained the Emperor Stage Profundity Fragment, and they still did not know if he had hidden it somewhere.
Therefore, he chose to endure for the Emperor Stage Profundity Fragment. At least for now.
‘Zuo Yue, rest in peace… Please wait a moment on the path to death. I’ll accompany you after I kill Duan Ling Tian and find out where the Emperor Stage Profundity Fragment is,’ Bai Yu Hai thought to himself with a grave expression on his face.
Initially, it did not matter to him if Duan Ling Tian died or not. He was only interested in the Emperor Stage Profundity Fragment.
However, he was enraged now that his direct disciple Zuo Yue was dead.
He could not wait to kill Duan Ling Tian right away!
Feng Tian Wu, who had remained silent all this while, had a change of expression. At the same time, her concerned voice entered Duan Ling Tian’s ears.
“Big Brother Duan!”
