Translator: EndlessFantasy Translation Editor: EndlessFantasy Translation
Lu Rui was injured by Leng Chi’s aura, and he spat out a mouthful of blood. Leng Chi’s aura swept out again and pressed against him, forcing him to take a few steps back.
With every step back, Lu Rui spat out a mouthful of blood as his face turned pale.
Despair showed in Lu Rui’s eyes when he saw the third wave of Leng Chi’s aura swept out.
Although he was a martial artist at the peak of the Void, his strength was nothing compared to the Lu Clan’s three major Guardian Elders who were Martial Monarch powerhouses.
He was just like an ant at their mercy in the eyes of Martial Monarch powerhouses like Leng Chi.
He was already breathless and injured when the other party merely exuded his aura.
If Leng Chi did that a few more times, it was highly likely he would be killed by Leng Chi’s aura.
“Humph!” At the moment when Lu Rui thought he was going to die, he felt a strong breeze next to him.
A purple figure stood in front of him and shielded him.
“Elder Duan!” Lu Rui’s face changed dramatically when he saw the familiar figure.
The reason he had rushed to the front was to help Elder Duan. That was why he became anxious when he saw Duan Ling Tian shielding him. He thought everything he had done was in vain.
However, his expression froze on his face in the very next moment.
What did he see?
He watched as the purple-clad young man stood in front of him and allowed Leng Chi’s aura to sweep over his body. However, he was not affected at all. He stood there as still as a mountain.
“Elder Duan’s strength… He’s so strong?” Lu Rui’s face was filled with amazement.
Although he knew about Elder Duan’s background, and how he had killed one of their Lu clan’s elder who was at the Eighth Level Void Transformation, he thought Elder Duan’s cultivation was at most on par with him which was at the peak of the Void.
However, the current scene had undoubtedly changed his view of Elder Duan. “He’s worthy of being the third reincarnation of the Rebirth Martial Emperor… He’s already at the Martial Monarch stage at such a young age!”
Lu Rui thought Duan Ling Tian was a Martial Monarch powerhouse based on the fact that he could directly face Leng Chi’s aura.
It made one wonder what his expression would be like if he found out Duan Ling Tian was not a Martial Monarch powerhouse.
On the other hand, Cheng He who was initially calm was stunned. He had a solemn expression on his face when he saw Duan Ling Tian was unaffected by Leng Chi’s aura.
“Who is he? Not only is he a grade one alchemist at such a young age, but he could also face Leng Chi’s aura!” Cheng He was completely shocked by Duan Ling Tian.
When Leng Chi realized his aura did not affect Duan Ling Tian, there were some changes on his indifferent face.
Suddenly, Leng Chi stepped forward. His hand extended out as fast as lightning as it headed toward Duan Ling Tian.
Boom! Boom! Boom! Boom! Boom!
In that instance, the Heaven and Earth Energy stirred at the void above Leng Chi’s head. It was followed by a thunderous air explosion that showed his power.
Duan Ling Tian’s face sank. His eyes gleamed coldly when he saw Leng Chi aiming his hand at him.
Currently, his strength had greatly improved. Hence, he was able to stay as calm as still water in the face of a Martial Monarch powerhouse like Leng Chi.
Duan Ling Tian was calm, and his face turned solemn.
He could see that Leng Chi was not an ordinary Martial Monarch powerhouse!
At least, he was not one that Duan Ling Tian was a match for even though Duan Ling Tian’s strength was comparable to ordinary Martial Monarch powerhouses.
When Duan Ling Tian was about to retreat, a short-lived sound of sword whistling reverberated in the air. He was stunned when he heard how familiar that sound was.
In the next moment, he saw a sword-shaped flame sweeping toward Leng Chi with great momentum.
“Tian Wu!” When Duan Ling Tian saw the sword-shaped flame, his face changed dramatically. He recognized the person, it was Feng Tian Wu.
More accurately, it was the Feng Tian Wu who had amnesia.
Duan Ling Tian moved in the next moment.
However, he did not rush toward Leng Chi nor did he rush to Feng Tian Wu who was attacking Leng Chi with her sword.
His target was Cheng He who stood at the side while he watched all the action.
Instantly, Duan Ling Tian seemed to have transformed into a hurricane and flew toward Cheng He. He did not hold back and exerted all his strength.
All five Ninth Level Void Transformation Concepts were cast. It was equivalent to 5,000 ancient horned dragons’ strength.
The Ninth Level Advance Earth Concept drew support from Earth Energy and added another 500 ancient horned dragons’ strength.
He fueled the Fire Concept with the Wind Concept!
As the Ninth Level Advance Wind Concept merged with the Ninth Level Advanced Fire Concept, the latter surged and added another 500 ancient horned dragons’ strength.
All of the Concepts Duan Ling Tian had comprehended when fully exerted were equivalent to 6,000 ancient horned dragons’ strength!
Additionally, his Ninth Level Void Transformation’s Origin Energy gave him another 1,200 ancient horned dragons’ strength. His current speed was driven by 7,200 ancient horned dragons’ strength.
Due to that, Duan Ling Tian was so fast that Cheng He who was a First Level Martial Monarch could not react in time.
An ordinary First Level Martial Monarch Stage martial artist’s Origin energy fully exerted was equivalent to 2,000 ancient horned dragons’ strength.
A First Level Monarch Stage Profundity was equivalent to 2,000 ancient horned dragons’ strength.
Two types of Ninth Level Void Transformation Stage Concepts were equivalent to 2,000 ancient horned dragons’ strength as well.
In total, it was 6,000 ancient horned dragons’ strength.
Cheng He belonged in the ordinary category.
Therefore, Duan Ling Tian had an additional 1,200 ancient horned dragons’ strength compared to Cheng He.
In an instant, Duan Ling Tian arrived near him.
On the other hand, Leng Chi’s killing intent rose when he faced Feng Tian Wu. However, his face changed dramatically, and he became anxious when he noticed Cheng He’s situation.
Following that, he hurriedly swatted Feng Tian Wu’s attacking sword aside.
Meanwhile, Cheng He quickly flew to the side as his piercing gaze shifted from Feng Tian Wu to Duan Ling Tian.
His palm met with Feng Tian Wu’s sword that contained more than 8,000 ancient horned dragons’ strength. It completely neutralized the force contained in Feng Tian Wu’s sword and forced her to take a few steps back.
Feng Tian Wu paled, and her body was on the verge of collapsing. It was apparent she was suffering from internal injuries.
“Don’t kill him!” At this time, an urgent voice sounded and caused Feng Tian Wu and Lu Rui’s faces to change dramatically.
Feng Tian Wu was startled by a large explosion. There was panic in her eyes.
In the distance, the purple-clad young man was batted away with a boom. The purple-clad young man had decided to charge at Cheng He when he saw Feng Tian Wu. It was a case of trying to ‘besiege Wei to rescue Zhao’.
“Ouch!” Duan Ling Tian vomited blood as his body flew out like a fired arrow. The only thing he felt was the sharp pain in his body.
That feeling was very uncomfortable.
The part that hurt the most was his chest, followed by his internal organs and finally all over his body.
These were the thoughts running through Duan Ling Tian’s mind.
Due to his injuries, Duan Ling Tian found it hard to mobilize his Origin Energy. Due to that, he was batted off by Leng Chi’s palm. He flew back in the distance before he finally fell to the ground.
A flame-like figure immediately lunged toward Duan Ling Tian.
Although the red-clad woman did not say anything, the anxiety between her brows displayed her emotion.
“Elder Duan!” Lu Rui’s face changed dramatically as he hurried over.
When he flew toward the injured Duan Ling Tian who had fallen to the ground, a weird bead appeared in his hand. He crushed it the instant it appeared.
Duan Ling Tian would have recognized the bead if he saw it.
It was a bead inscribed with Detection Inscription.
Once it was crushed, it would be detected by the intended people, and they would come rushing over.
In the entire Lu clan, there were only a few people Lu Rui could summon by crushing the bead. They had to be at the Martial Monarch Stage or higher.
“I… I’m alright.” Duan Ling Tian who laid on the ground was miraculously able to stand after he consumed a grade one Life Recovery Pill he had refined.
“Undoubtedly worthy of being a grade one Life Recovery Pill with more than 90% purity!” Cheng He’s eyes brightened as he witnessed this scene. His breathing instantly quickened.
Imagine it. If he could obtain the method of refining grade one pills with such high purity, his status in the Alchemist Guild of Cloud Continent would definitely rise!
It was even possible for him to be the Guild Master of the Cloud Continent’s Alchemist Guild, the Supreme Main Guild. At that time, he would be worshipped by other alchemists.
“I must obtain the method of refining grade one pills with such high purity!” Cheng He’s gaze gradually turned steely.
This was the reason why he shouted at Leng Chi to spare Duan Ling Tian’s life. He still wanted to obtain the method of refining grade one pills with such high purity from Duan Ling Tian.
He would have come in vain if Duan Ling Tian died.
Duan Ling Tian had accurately guessed Cheng He’s thought. That was why he had risked himself to save Feng Tian Wu with the tactic of ‘besieging Wei to rescue Zhao’.
If he did not do that, Feng Tian Wu would have certainly died!
Although he risked his life by doing so, he made a gamble that Chen He would stop Leng Chi from killing him.
The fact proved that he was right.
“Duan Ling Tian, don’t blame me for being brazen since I gave you face, and you didn’t want it!”
Cheng He looked at Duan Ling Tian and coldly said, “I’ll spare your life today if you tell me the method of refining grade one pills with more than 90% purity!”
