Translator: EndlessFantasy Translation Editor: EndlessFantasy Translation
Duan Ling Tian did not have time to react at all. The speed of the old man next to Lu Song was extremely fast.
In just a blink of an eye, the world before Duan Ling Tian’s eyes was bathed in a red glow. It was as though he was standing in a sea of flames. The scorching aura that was sweeping toward him made sweat drip from his forehead to his face.
When a loud explosion sounded, Duan Ling Tian noticed a tremor in the sea of flames before it withdrew. It began to shrink before his eyes.
Eventually, the sea of red flames withdrew until it revealed the silhouette of a person. It was an old man whose body was covered in flames.
However, the flames on the old man’s body was a little burnt out and weak now.
The old man’s face suddenly paled before he spat out a mouthful of blood as he shuddered.
Blood fell on the ground like blooming red roses.
The old man looked at the spot next to Duan Ling Tian. To be more precise, his eyes were fixed on the red-clad lady standing next to Duan Ling Tian.
From the beginning until the end, the red-clad lady was just standing next to Duan Ling Tian quietly.
Neither Lu Song nor the old man saw her as a threat since the beginning.
They did not think she would pose a threat to them because she was so young.
However, both of their eyes were trained on her now.
Soon after, they lifted their heads immediately as though they had noticed something.
Both of them saw the Heaven and Earth Energy that was rumbling above the red-clad lady’s head just a second ago had now formed the Heaven and Earth Phenomenon. Ancient horned dragons’ silhouettes were forming quickly.
The number was still increasing.
In the end, the ancient horned dragons’ silhouettes stopped at 8,000.
8,000 ancient horned dragons’ strength!
“Fire Profundity… Sword Profundity…” The old man exclaimed loudly. There was fear in his eyes when he saw the sword-shaped flame forming on the red-clad lady’s body.
At this moment, the old man took a deep breath as he looked at the red-clad lady in fear. He tried to probe by asking, “Demon… Demon Monarch?”
In the old man’s opinion, the beautiful red-clad lady looked like she was only in her early twenties.
A lady at such a young age had comprehended two types of Monarch Stage Profundities.
It was obvious the red-clad lady was a Martial Monarch powerhouse like him!
However, it was impossible for a human martial artist to be a Martial Monarch powerhouse at such a young age. Therefore, it was very likely that the red-clad lady was a Demon Monarch powerhouse!
A Demon Monarch powerhouse was the equivalent of a Martial Monarch martial artist.
The red-clad lady ignored the old man’s question. Instead, she coldly responded with another question, “You want to kill him?”
If one took a closer look, one would notice her originally cold face had turned even colder at this moment.
The red-clad lady stood there while her body was shrouded in a scorching sword-shaped flame.
However, the old man whom she was staring at did not feel the heat. The only thing he felt was bone-piercing chills from all directions.
The old man remained silent and did not answer the red-clad lady’s question. However, there was a hint of fear in his eyes now.
“Anybody who has the intention to kill him… must die,” The red-clad lady moved her beautiful lips. As soon as the word ‘die’ was heard, she completely vanished before Lu Song’s eyes.
“Be careful, Elder Guan!” Lu Song exclaimed in panic as his facial expression changed dramatically.
However, when he turned to look at the old man, he noticed the old man shuddering before he fell to the ground. There was no breath left in him.
The red-clad lady stood before the old man’s corpse. Her clothes were flapping in the wind like burning flames.
“Elder Guan…” Lu Song mumbled to himself as he shifted his focus from the old man’s corpse to the red-clad lady. He was traumatized. His face had lost all its colors.
Although he hated the red-clad lady for killing the biggest support he had, he did not dare to show it on his face.
Lu Song kneeled on the ground and kowtowed to the red-clad lady as Duan Ling Tian watched in shock. “Please spare my life… Please spare my life!”
The red-clad lady glanced at Lu Song begging on the ground and said coldly, “I won’t kill you.”
“Thank you, senior! Thank you, senior!” Lu Song thanked her immediately and kowtowed even harder. His head soon began to bleed.
The red-clad lady moved like a fire elf and soon arrived next to Duan Ling Tian. She said softly, “I don’t want to dirty my hands by killing him.”
“Let me do it,” Duan Ling Tian said as he smiled.
The red-clad lady was none other than Feng Tian Wu who had lost her memory.
Duan Ling Tian only found out the day before that Feng Tian Wu had full control of her strength now after her memory loss.
She was currently a First Level Void Transformation martial artist who had mastered two types of Third Level Monarch Stage Profundities.
Without Origin Energy, she was able to perform attacks that were equivalent to 8,000 ancient horned dragons’ strength just by depending on Profundities.
That was the reason why Duan Ling Tian was fearless earlier. He knew he was safe as long as he had Tian Wu by his side.
Just as he had expected, Tian Wu did not disappoint. She killed the Martial Monarch powerhouse next to Lu Song in just an instant. Her movement was as smooth as flowing water, and it was a clean-cut.
“Anybody who has the intention to kill him… must die.” What Feng Tian Wu said to the Martial Monarch powerhouse next to Lu Song earlier echoed in Duan Ling Tian’s ears.
Her words were cold with a hint of rage mixed in it.
Duan Ling Tian’s heart was filled with warmth.
Although he knew Tian Wu still could not recall her past, he also knew that she knew him in the depth of her heart. He could see that from her anger earlier.
The sound of wind whistling suddenly sounded at this moment. The sound seemed to be moving further and further away.
It was Lu Song attempting to run away before Duan Ling Tian had a chance to attack him.
What a joke!
Duan Ling Tian killed an Eighth Level Void Transformation Lu Clan’s elder before.
Would it not be easy for him to kill a Fifth Level Void Transformation martial artist like Lu Song?
“Run? Do you think you can run?”
Lu Song heard a mocking voice after he ran tens of meters away.
He lifted his head to look at the source of the voice and saw a familiar silhouettes waiting in front of him.
A purple-clad young man appeared before him.
“How… How’s it possible that you’re so fast?!” Lu Song’s eyes widened. He stopped moving and asked with fear written all over his face, “You… You… You’re a Peak Level Void Stage powerhouse?”
“Seems like you’re not entirely dumb,” Duan Ling Tian looked at Lu Song in surprise. His currentability was similar to a Peak Level Void Stage powerhouse.
Lu Song kneeled down once again and kowtowed as he begged since he knew it was impossible for him to escape from Duan Ling Tian.
However, he was kowtowing to a different person now. He was kowtowing to Duan Ling Tian. “Elder Duan, please spare my life! Elder Duan, please spare my life!”
“I promise I won’t return to the Lu Clan as long as Elder Duan spares my worthless life. I won’t contend for the Clan Leader position with Lu Bai anymore… Elder Duan, I beg you! I beg you!” Lu Song did not stop kowtowing as he begged with all his might.
He did not look like the Lu Clan’s First Young Master at this moment. He looked wretched as though he had no dignity.
“How’s a coward like you worthy of taking over the position of Clan Leader?” Duan Ling Tian glanced at Lu Song in disgust. He did not bother to waste any more of his time on him and immediately killed him.
If Lu Song did not try to seek for revenge from Duan Ling Tian, perhaps he might still be the Lu Clan’s First Young Master.
However, he chose to take revenge on Duan Ling Tian. He was digging his own grave.
“Alright, where should I go now?” At this moment, a familiar voice entered Duan Ling Tian’s ears.
“Elder Zhi?” He saw Lu Zhi escaping from the Illusory Formation in the distance.
Although it was not surprising, he was still rather shocked.
He had observed the Illusory Formation with his Spiritual Energy, and he calculated it would take at least half an hour for an ordinary Martial Monarch powerhouse to escape it.
However, Lu Zhi only took fifteen minutes to get out.
“Elder Duan?” Lu Zhi heaved a sigh of relief when he heard Duan Ling Tian’s voice. “I finally got out.”
He thought he might have entered an Illusory Formation when he turned around and realized that Duan Ling Tian, Feng Tian Wu, and the lecherous middle-aged man who was walking in front of him had vanished.
Subsequently, he began to look for the path to get out of the Illusory Formation. Eventually, he managed to escape after fifteen minutes.
Lu Zhi’s eyes suddenly narrowed.
His eyes were trained on an old corpse on the ground. He frowned as he looked at the familiar face. “Isn’t that Guan Li?”
Lu Zhi was one of the Lu Clan’s three Guardian Elders. Therefore, he recognized most of the elders in the clan especially since he was an old man himself.
One of the people he knew included Guan Li.
He was the clan’s foreign elder who was always at the Lu Clan’s First Young Master’s side.
Suddenly, Lu Zhi lifted his head and looked into the distance as though he had noticed something.
“Lu Song?!” He recognized the corpse lying tens of meters away with just a glance. His eyes narrowed again.
“Elder Duan, what happened…” Lu Zhi took a deep breath and looked at Duan Ling Tian skeptically.
“Elder Zhi, don’t you find it strange that they’re here?” Duan Ling Tian asked with a faint smile on his face as he faced Lu Zhi’s skeptical look.
“Yes, it’s a little strange.” Lu Zhi nodded.
“Actually, the thing that I want isn’t here,” Duan Ling Tian sighed and told him everything that had happened without missing any details.
“What?!” Lu Zhi’s expression changed dramatically. “Lu Song set this up to lure Elder Duan out so he could kill you?”
