Chapter 1041: A Threat
Translator: EndlessFantasy Translation Editor: EndlessFantasy Translation
Feng Tian Wu’s face changed slightly when she saw three people from Anicca Sect appeared after Duan Ling Tian had killed Tong Shan with the talisman.
She did not know her Big Brother Duan was targeted by Anicca Sect as well.
She thought Zuo Yue was only looking for trouble and managed to convince the elder in his sect to teach Duan Ling Tian a lesson.
She only realized the people from Anicca Sect were here for another reason when Duan Ling Tian took the Ninety-Nine Heavenly Tribulation oath.
They were not here to take revenge on her Big Brother Duan. They were here for something bigger, and that was to obtain the three Profundity Fragments from Martial Emperor Qing Feng’s body in the Martial Emperor’s secret treasure!
She was familiar with the three Profundity Fragments.
When she saw her Big Brother Duan took the oath, she could not help but feel relieved when the thunder penalty did not come. She thought her Big Brother Duan would escape the trouble this time.
However, who would have thought another person would appear during the critical moment.
It was Feng Tong from North Nether Sect!
She overheard his name when the old man from Anicca Sect greeted the old man from North Nether Sect. The name was not unfamiliar to her.
When she was at Blade Sect, she had heard people discussing the three second-rate forces in the northern desert, including the Supreme Elders from the three forces who were Martial Monarch powerhouses.
Tong Shan from Izumo Sect!
Feng Tong from North Nether Sect!
Bai Yu Hai from Anicca Sect!
Her Big Brother Duan killed Tong Shan with the talisman.
Feng Tian Wu managed to identify the old man from Anicca Sect from how casually he spoke to Feng Tong.
He was the Anicca Sect’s Supreme Elder, the Martial Monarch powerhouse Bai Yu Hai!
She was truly shocked to the core at this moment.
Why would three second-rate forces’ Martial Monarch powerhouses gather in this little godforsaken kingdom?
She was able to piece everything together as time went by.
Bai Yu Hai was here to obtain the Profundity Fragment her Big Brother Duan retrieved from Martial Emperor Qing Feng’s body while Feng Tong was here to avenge Xu Qing who used to be the strongest young man in North Nether Sect.
Her heart was palpitating as the situation progressed and changed constantly.
A bone-piercing chill rose in her heart when she saw her Big Brother Duan was targeted by two Martial Monarchs.
“Hmm?” Feng Tian Wu noticed Duan Ling Tian had turned around to look at her after he heard her call out to him.
She could see the severity of the situation in her Big Brother Duan’s eyes.
‘Seems like Big Brother Duan isn’t as calm as he looks on the surface… The pressure from the two Martial Monarchs is too much!’ Feng Tian Wu thought to herself.
She had tens of thousands of thoughts running wildly through her mind.
‘It’ll be difficult for me to kill these two Martial Monarchs! I’ll have to elevate my Monarch Stage Fire Profundity to the Third Level at least to be able to kill them.’ Feng Tian Wu’s focus shifted from Duan Ling Tian to the two silhouettes in the distance. There was a hint of fear on her beautiful face.
‘With my current condition, I’ll be able to cast the Third Level Monarch Stage Fire Profundity by force and unleash the Third Level Monarch Stage Sword Profundity. My power would be equivalent to 8,000 ancient horned dragons’ strength… However, I’m afraid I’ll only be able to kill one of them before my body explodes!’ Feng Tian Wu understood her condition better than anyone else.
“Tian Wu, you cannot cast the high-level Fire Profundity by force just to fight them!” A voice familiar to Feng Tian Wu suddenly entered her ears. Her heart jolted before it was flooded with warmth and a smile formed on her beautiful face.
Although her Big Brother Duan was in a predicament, he still cared about her wellbeing.
“I’ll try my best to solve this,” Duan Ling Tian said through Voice Transmission as he took a deep breath.
He knew Tian Wu well. That was why he gave her a reminder since he was afraid she would do something reckless.
He had examined the condition of Feng Tian Wu’s body with his Spiritual Energy previously so he knew her condition almost as well she did.
‘As soon as Tian Wu casts the high-level Fire Concept by force, the Fire Spirit Body within her will explode even if she manages to kill Feng Tong or Bai Yu Hai! She won’t be able to endure long enough to kill the second person,’ Duan Ling Tian thought to himself.
“Duan Ling Tian, where’s the Emperor Stage Profundity Fragment?” Feng Tong said in a deep voice as he stared coldly at Duan Ling Tian.
“I’ve already told you… you can take my life. There’s no Emperor Stage Profundity Fragment for you,” Duan Ling Tian replied like a hooligan.
Naturally, he only dared to say that because he was certain Feng Tong would not kill him, not because he really wanted to die.
At this moment, his priority was to find a way to solve the crisis before him.
“Hmph!” Bai Yu Hai who stood nearby scoffed loudly before Feng Tong could reply. His scoff that contained Origin Energy swept toward the Crimson Sky Kingdom like an explosion.
Meanwhile, the people in the Crimson Sky Kingdom’s palace wailed in pain as their eardrums ruptured.
Some of them passed out, and some were even killed by that one scoff!
One scoff from an enraged Martial Monarch could kill people within a thousand miles radius.
Naturally, it could only kill those with low cultivation base.
“Duan Ling Tian, do you think we’ll give up just because you’re behaving like this… We can’t kill you but killing the people around you is not a problem at all!”
Bai Yu Hai seemed like a completely different person after Zuo Yue’s death. There was a cold killing intent in his bloodshot eyes as though he would devour anyone who approached him.
His voice was bone-piercing as though it came from an ice cave.
“We’ll kill you if you tell us where the Emperor Stage Profundity Fragment is! However, I won’t make a move against your close friends and family.”
“If you don’t tell me where the Emperor Stage Profundity Fragment is, I’ll kill one person related to you every hour! If you insist on persisting, you’ll have to watch the people around you die one after another.” Bai Yu Hai threatened Duan Ling Tian.
Feng Tong’s eyes lit up when he heard Bai Yu Hai’s words as he silently agreed with his course of action.
He wanted the Emperor Stage Profundity Fragment as much as he wanted Duan Ling Tian’s life.
Bai Yu Hai’s words were exactly what he wanted to say.
“Shameless!” A chill appeared on Feng Tian Wu’s beautiful face as she rebuked loudly, “It’s embarrassing that a Martial Monarch is threatening a Void Transformation martial artist. Won’t you feel ashamed if people hear about this?”
Meanwhile, Duan Ling Tian’s calm expression changed when he heard what Bai Yu Hai said. His expression was somber now.
If he did not disclose the location of the Profundity Fragment, every single hour one person related to him would be killed?
Did that not mean 24 people related to him would be killed in merely a day?
“Shameless?” Bai Yu Hai looked at Feng Tian Wu after she rebuked him. “If the both of you die, who else will know about what happened here today?”
“Furthermore, so what if people hear about it? Would I, Bai Yu Hai, lose hair over it?” Bai Yu Hai said. His eyes gleamed as he observed Feng Tian Wu.
Feng Tian Wu’s expression changed drastically when she saw the gleam in Bai Yu Hai’s eyes as though she had figured out something.
Unfortunately, she only regained her senses when she noticed a powerful force heading in her direction. She did not have the strength to fight back at all as it carried her away.
“Tian Wu!” Duan Ling Tian’s expression changed dramatically when he saw what happened.
Unfortunately, Feng Tian Wu had already been forcefully pulled to Bai Yu Hai’s side before he even had time to react.
At this moment, flame surged out of her body as she struggled.
However, the flame on her body was suppressed by an invisible force whenever it rose to a certain level. The flame would extinguish on its own.
“What are you trying to do?” Duan Ling Tian’s face turned somber. Killing intent flashed in his eyes as he stared at Bai Yu Hai.
“What am I trying to do?” Bai Yu Hai laughed in an easygoing manner.
However, his eyes were still terrifying when he looked at Duan Ling Tian. “I’ve already told you… if you don’t tell me the location of the Emperor Stage Profundity Fragment, I’ll kill someone related to you every hour.”
“I’ve selected my first candidate… It’ll be her!” Bai Yu Hai said as he pointed at Feng Tian Wu next to him. A grin appeared on his face. “You’ve got an hour… If you insist on not telling us the location of the Profundity Fragment, she’ll definitely die at the end of the hour!”
Bai Yu Hai’s tone was so cold it could induce goosebumps on everyone who heard his voice.
Duan Ling Tian’s face turned grave.
“Alright! I promise you.” Duan Ling Tian said in his deep voice. He looked at Bai Yu Hai after he glanced at Feng Tian Wu.
“It seems like you know just what to say at the right time!” Feng Tong laughed before Bai Yu Hai said, “So tell us, where’s the Emperor Stage Profundity Fragment?”
“You won’t find it even if I tell you… However, I can bring the both of you there.” Although Duan Ling Tian was very unwilling to hand over the Emperor Stage Profundity Fragment to Bai Yu Hai and Feng Tong, there was nothing he could do now. The only thing he could do now was to stall for time.
His priority was to get Tian Wu away from Bai Yu Hai’s devilish clutch.
He would not be able to forgive himself in this lifetime if Tian Wu was harmed by this incident.
“Lead the way!” Bai Yu Hai said calmly as he looked at Duan Ling Tian. Meanwhile, he lifted his arm and tossed Feng Tian Wu away.
‘No!!’ Feng Tian Wu’s beautiful face turned pale as she was tossed out. She reacted immediately, and her eyes turned red. She was screaming in her heart.
‘Big Brother Duan’s bringing them to retrieve the Emperor Stage Profundity Fragment because of me?’
She knew exactly what the Emperor Stage Profundity Fragment meant to Duan Ling Tian.
‘No! I definitely won’t let that happen!’
‘I’m going to kill them! I’m going to kill them!’
The more Feng Tian Wu panicked, the more out of control she became.
