Chapter 1109: The Explosive Point
Translator: EndlessFantasy Translation Editor: EndlessFantasy Translation
‘Could it be that Elder Duan actually knows some secret technique?’
Many of the Lu Clan’s people pondered inwardly.
After all, it was shocking enough that Elder Duan became a grade one alchemist at such a young age. On top of that, he could also refine pills with 97% purity.
A pill with such purity was heaven-defying!
Under the watchful eyes of the crowd, Duan Ling Tian ignored Cheng He. His gaze landed on the red-clad woman beside him, and he asked in an extremely gentle voice, “Tian Wu, who injured you?” A hint of wrath could be heard in his otherwise gentle voice.
Feng Tian Wu’s heart skipped a beat when she heard the anger in his voice. The frost on her face dissipated a little.
Her gaze instantly shifted to that green-clad middle-aged man standing in the distance.
The green-clad middle-aged man stood behind Cheng He like a shadow.
“It’s you again!” Following the direction of Feng Tian Wu’s gaze, Duan Ling Tian looked at the green-clad middle-aged man with cold eyes. “Leng Chi!”
Previously, Leng Chi had also injured Tian Wu and him.
Upon hearing Duan Ling Tian’s words, Leng Chi lazily lifted his head and glanced at Duan Ling Tian nonchalantly. A hint of scorn could be seen in his eyes.
It was as though they were saying, ‘So what if it’s me again? You can’t avenge your woman anyway!’
At this moment, milky-white flames skyrocketed from Duan Ling Tian’s body as he emitted waves of terrifying aura.
The Heaven and Earth Energy whirred above his head and finally gathered into the Heaven and Earth Phenomenon. There was a total of 2,000 ancient horned dragons’ silhouettes.
Just his Origin Energy alone was equivalent to the strength of 2,000 ancient horned dragons.
That was the trademark of a First Level Martial Monarch!
“E-Elder Duan is a Martial Monarch?!” For a moment, many of the Lu Clan’s elders and disciples present on the scene were shocked.
“Duan Ling Tian has made a breakthrough to the Martial Monarch Stage?” Lu Bai was shocked as well.
Although he had once witnessed Duan Ling Tian killing a Lu Clan’s elder who was at the Eighth Level Void Transformation Stage with his own eyes, he did not expect Duan Ling Tian to be a Martial Monarch. He thought Duan Ling Tian was a powerhouse at the peak of the Void at the most.
The scene unfolding before his eyes made him realize that Duan Ling Tian was either already a Martial Monarch at that time, or he had just recently made a breakthrough to the Martial Monarch Stage.
Compared to the rest of the Lu Clan’s elders and disciples, Lu Rui, the Clan Leader of the Lu Clan, was not surprised at all.
Last time, he had personally witnessed how Elder Duan had almost killed Cheng He who was at the First Level Martial Monarch Stage.
At that time, he had already guessed that Elder Duan was a Martial Monarch.
As for Lu Qiu, the Former Clan Leader of Lu Clan, and the Lu Clan’s three great Guardian Elders, they were still slightly stunned even though they had already heard about this matter from Lu Rui.
After all, Duan Ling Tian was just too young!
Naturally, it was still acceptable that he was young!
Being ‘young’ was not the main point!
Elder Duan was a grade one alchemist who could refine grade one pills with 97% purity.
With his current age, his achievement in the Medicine Refinement Dao was enough to make 90% of the alchemists on Cloud Continent to lower their heads in shame.
However, such a young man who was so talented in the Medicine Refinement Dao was also a Martial Monarch?
“I-Is Elder Duan even human?”
After a moment of silence, the group of Lu Clan’s elders and disciples was in an uproar. All of them stared in shock at the purple figure in the distance.
“I didn’t expect I’ll be able to encounter a Variant in this lifetime!” Mo Jie, the Guild Leader of the Weapons Craftsmen Guild’s Main Guild in the Southern Outer Land took a step forward and scrutinized Duan Ling Tian. “It’s said that each Variant has their own special innate ability. I wonder what innate ability do you possess?”
Although Mo Jie’s voice was not loud, everyone present heard his words. His words were like a stone that caused a thousand ripples.
“Variant? Innate ability?” Many Lu Clan’s disciples were confused.
“Does this mean that Elder Duan is a Variant?” Some of the Lu Clan’s elders could not help but narrow their eyes. They knew a little about Variants.
“What’s a Variant?” Most of the people who asked this question were the Lu Clan’s disciples.
“A Variant is born from the copulation of a human and a Demon. A Variant is either very ordinary or monstrous! There are many of the formers on Cloud Continent, but the latter is extremely rare,” one of the Lu Clan’s elders explained solemnly.
“That’s right,” another Lu Clan’s elder chimed in before he continued to say, “It’s said that the latter has innate talent and comprehension that far surpass human being… Even humans who have the best innate talent and comprehension on Cloud Continent are not comparable to them!”
“Moreover, the monstrous Variants also have a special innate ability. The Variant’s innate ability is one-of-a-kind in this world!” Another person added.
Some of the Lu Clan’s elders and many of the disciples broke into a clamor when they found out what Variants were. Their faces were filled with confusion.
“Then, does it mean that Elder Duan is a Variant?”
“Well, this is the only plausible explanation. Since Elder Duan is a grade one alchemist, it means he’s not a demon! However, it’s almost impossible for a human to achieve so much in both Martial Dao and Medicine Refinement Dao at his age!”
“You have a point!”
As the group of Lu Clan’s elders and disciples buried their heads in discussion, they very quickly came to a conclusion — Duan Ling Tian, this First Interim Advisor of their Lu Clan, was a Variant. Moreover, he was the type of Variant that was extremely monstrous.
At this moment, they finally understood why Elder Duan could achieve so much at such a young age.
The only people who did not think Duan Ling Tian was a Variant were Lu Rui and Lu Qiu, the Clan Leader and the former Clan Leader of the Lu Clan.
This was because both of them knew about Duan Ling Tian’s background.
Duan Ling Tian was someone who had obtained earth-shattering achievement in Medicine Refinement Dao, Weapons Refinement Dao, and Inscription Dao in his past lives.
In this reincarnation, he only needed to raise his cultivation base and Spiritual Energy to a certain level, and he would become an outstanding alchemist, weapons craftsman, and an Inscription Master!
In their opinion, calling him a Variant was quite ridiculous.
Milky-white flames soared up from Duan Ling Tian’s body as his icy gaze landed on Cheng He and Leng Chi. He enunciated his words slowly, “I told you previously that you’re playing with fire… Since all of you are here today, you might as well just stay here forever!” His voice was bone-piercingly cold.
“Hahahaha…” Upon hearing Duan Ling Tian’s words, Cheng He burst out laughing.
After a moment, his laughter finally died off. He sneered as he looked at Duan Ling Tian with disdain. “You? You’re going to make us stay here? Just with your cultivation base at the First Level Martial Monarch Stage? Previously, you were injured by Leng Chi with just one blow. It seems like you want to experience that again! I really wonder where you get your courage from!”
Meanwhile, Mo Jie also laughed as he chimed in, “It’s good to have confidence, young man! However, it’s not good to let it turn into arrogance!” There was a hint of rebuke in Mo Jie’s words.
“Although Elder Duan is a Martial Monarch, he’s only at the First Level Martial Monarch Stage. It won’t be easy for him to deal with these people.”
“The fact that Elder Duan possesses such strength at such a young age is already terrifying enough! However, his strength is not even comparable to the three Guardian Elders of our Lu Clan, let alone these people.”
“If Elder Duan is given another ten years, these people definitely won’t be a match for him!”
“Of course! Elder Duan is the rumored Variant after all. A person who can be considered as heaven-defying on Cloud Continent!”
Many of the Lu Clan’s elders and disciples buried their heads together in discussion. They did not think Duan Ling Tian would be able to defeat Cheng He and the others.
“Elder Duan!” When the milky-white flames transformed from the Origin Energy on Duan Ling Tian’s body skyrocketed even more, Lu Rui looked at Duan Ling Tian and shouted, “Take Miss Tian Wu with you and leave. The Lu Clan will block them for you!”
Lu Rui’s words were full of determination. His manner was imposing as though he knew this would be their last battle.
When the last of his words left his mouth, he flew out and charged at Cheng He and the other four.
“I have no regrets if the rest of my life is sacrificed for Duan Ling Tian’s sake! Elder Duan, you must survive!” Lu Qiu, the former Clan Leader of Lu Clan, smiled brightly. When his voice echoed in the air, he was already by Lu Rui’s side. He was glaring viciously at Cheng He and the other four.
If Cheng He and the other four dared to make a move, they would instantly unleash their thunder-like attack.
“Elder Duan, you must live well! If we die, please avenge us!” The Lu Clan’s three great Guardian Elders shouted in unison before they flew out as well, surrounding Cheng He and the other four together with Lu Rui and Lu Qiu.
“Elder Duan, please survive and live well!” At this moment, a group of Lu Clan’s elders and disciples had also flown out and surrounded Cheng He and the other four in a tighter formation with three layers inside and another three layers outside. Each of them had a determined look on their faces.
They truly embodied the word ‘Unity’ at this moment, and they fully displayed the character of the Lu Clan.
Boom! Boom! Boom! Boom! Boom!
Without warning, Origin Energies soared up from the group of Lu Clan’s senior officials with Lu Rui in the lead. Their Profundities followed close behind like shadows.
Soon after, the Lu Clan’s people unleashed their soaring Origin Energies and Concepts as they glared viciously at Cheng He and the other four, ready to make a move at any time.
“Lu Clan…” The crowd before Duan Ling Tian’s eyes blocked Cheng He and the other four from his sight. His heart thumped.
At this moment, he was also affected by the valiant and moving atmosphere the Lu Clan had created.
‘I, Duan Ling Tian, will always remember this kindness of yours!’
‘However, today, let me solve my own matter on my own.’
At the same time, Cheng He who was surrounded by the Lu Clan suddenly yelled at the other four, “Follow the original plan!”
