Translator: EndlessFantasy Translation Editor: EndlessFantasy Translation
Lu Fuo sighed when he saw how determined Luo Jin was. He knew he would not be able to persuade his nephew so he would have to think of another way instead.
“Duan Ling Tian?” Upon hearing Luo Jin’s words, Qing Lang frowned and asked, “What’s really going on?”
Duan Ling Tian!
He was not unfamiliar with this name.
Apart from taking the first place in the Martial Competition of the Ten Dynasties organized by their Skywolf Fort, he was also close to the Young Miss with the mysterious background.
At that time, the Young Miss was looking for this person.
The Young Miss even called this man ‘Brother Ling Tian’. It made him realize this man was not someone he could afford to offend.
However, right now, Luo Fu’s nephew actually brought people from the Northern Divergent’s Sun Clan to look for trouble with Duan Ling Tian?
“He crippled my Dantian,” Luo Jin spat out.
“Fort Master, I only know he’s the champion of the Martial Competition of the Ten Dynasties that was organized by the Skywolf Fort. I don’t know his origin at all. Please tell me about his origin, Fort Master,” Luo Jin said.
Duan Ling Tian’s origin?
Qing Lang frowned. He really did not know. Even if he knew, he would not dare to disclose it.
If that Young Miss found out he had betrayed her Brother Ling Tian, would she not skin him alive the next time she came here?
“Senior Sun.” At this moment, Luo Fu looked at Sun Zhong and solemnly asked, “You must have heard of the North Nether Sect in our northern desert, right?”
“Of course, I have.” Although Sun Zhong did not know why Luo Fu would ask him this question, he still nodded his head. “The North Nether Sect is a second-rate force that’s more or less on par with our Sun Clan. I’ve even met Feng Tong, the Martial Monarch of North Nether Sect, once.”
“Senior Sun, if I tell you that Senior Feng Tong from the North Nether Sect might have been killed by the powerhouse hiding behind Duan Ling Tian… Do you still dare to kill him?” Luo Fu continued to ask.
“WHAT?!” The moment Luo Fu’s words left his mouth, horror dawned on Sun Zhong’s face at once. “Are you serious?”
“I’m willing to swear using the Nine-Nine Heavenly Tribulation,” Luo Fu said seriously.
At this moment, his heart was filled with a sense of helplessness.
If it was not for the fact that he was worried his nephew would become too obsessed with this matter, he would not have warned this Sun Clan’s Martial Monarch that had no relationship with him at all.
He loathed the Sun Clan because of his sister.
Naturally, he could only hate them inwardly. He did not dare to reveal his hatred since he was no match for the Sun Clan.
He was not aware of his nephew’s intention to seek revenge from Duan Ling Tian. Otherwise, he would have told his nephew all this to discourage him from seeking revenge.
“Hurmph!” The moment Sun Zhong heard this, he snorted and glared at Luo Jin. “Luo Jin, are you trying to get me killed?”
When Luo Jin heard Luo Fu’s words, colors immediately drained from his face. Now that he heard Sun Zhong rebuking him, he was so scared that his body and legs began to tremble.
“You’re right. Indeed, he wants to get you killed.” A vaguely distinct and nonchalant voice reverberated in the air.
Everyone immediately turned to look at the source of the voice.
They saw two figure, one red and one purple, standing in the distance since who-knew-when.
The young man stood there with his purple robe fluttering in the wind.
The woman with a face that could topple the nation stood beside the purple-clad young man as her fiery-red dress fluttered like dancing flames.
Purple flame soared followed by a red flame.
This pair of man and woman standing there seemed like a pair of golden boy and jade girl that was made in heaven. This was the first thought that rose in their hearts when they saw the pair.
In the next instance, the purple-clad young man and the red-clad woman walked side by side in the sky. Soon after, they arrived close to the place where the Skywolf Fort and Northern Divergent’s Sun Clan’s people stood.
It was a tripartite confrontation.
“Duan Ling Tian!” The five Vice Fort Master recognized the purple-clad young man, and their faces immediately paled. They did not expect him to appear the moment his name was mentioned.
Moreover, it was obvious he did not come to the Skywolf Fort with good intention.
The four Vice Fort Masters of Skywolf Fort who had once hunted Duan Ling Tian — Feng Wei, Ning Can, Meng Li, and Yu Kang — turned pale and hints of anxiety could be seen in their eyes.
They had only found out from Luo Fu that there was someone behind Duan Ling Tian who was capable of killing a Martial Monarch!
The four of them could not help but glance at their surroundings as though they were trying to locate the powerhouse hiding behind Duan Ling Tian’s back.
Unfortunately, they could not see anyone at all.
Qing Lang and Sun Zhong looked at Duan Ling Tian and asked almost simultaneously, “You’re Duan Ling Tian?”
“The Northern Divergent’s Sun Clan?” Duan Ling Tian ignored Qing Lang but glanced at Sun Zhong indifferently. “I see you have quite a good cultivation base. Second Level Martial Monarch Stage… A lot more powerful than that Feng Tong from the North Nether Sect.”
Second Level Martial Monarch Stage!
The moment the words left Duan Ling Tian’s mouth, Qing Lang and the five Vice Fort Masters from Skywolf Fort were stunned.
Although they had heard Sun Zhong was a Martial Monarch and number one in the Northern Divergent’s Sun Clan, they assumed he was only a First Level Martial Monarch Stage powerhouse. It did not cross their minds that Sun Zhong was actually at the Second Level Martial Monarch Stage!
The Second Level and the First Level Martial Monarch Stage could not be compared even though it was just a level apart.
“You have really good judgment, sir.” Sun Zhong was filled with dread when he saw Duan Ling Tian. The fact that Duan Ling Tian saw through his cultivation base in just a glance showed how profound he was.
Everything else aside, his instinct alone told him this man was not ordinary.
“The reason you traveled so far from the Northern Divergent Land is to kill me?” Duan Ling Tian asked as he stared at Sun Zhong.
“I dare not!” Sun Zhong hastily shook his head.
What a joke!
Since he already knew Feng Tong the Martial Monarch from North Nether Sect had died in this person’s hands, he did not dare to admit it. Moreover, he had just witnessed how mysterious this person was.
“Since you dare not, can you hand him over then?” Duan Ling Tian asked nonchalantly. His gaze shifted from Sun Zhong to Luo Jin whom he was holding.
Upon seeing Duan Ling Tian, Luo Jin’s face turned vicious again. When he saw Duan Ling Tian looking at him, he shouted at Sun Zhong, “Elder Zhong! Don’t forget that my father asked you to kill him on my behalf! Kill him now! Quick! Kill him!”
However, Sun Zhong did not seem to care about Luo Jin at all. Instead, he looked at Duan Ling Tian and said, “Sir, he’s still the son of our Sun Clan’s Clan Leader no matter what. You can take him with you, but can you at least show some sincerity, sir?”
“Sincerity?” Duan Ling Tian was momentarily stunned. Soon after, he smiled.
In the next moment, he turned his head slightly to look at the four Vice Fort Masters of Skywolf Fort, excluding Luo Fu, standing behind Qing Lang. “Four Vice Fort Masters, you almost took my life away, didn’t you?”
Ning Can and the other three turned pale when they saw Duan Ling Tian staring at them.
Qing Lang frowned the moment he heard Duan Ling Tian’s words. He was about to ask if there was some sort of misunderstanding since he was unaware of the incident where his four Vice Fort Masters hunted Duan Ling Tian. “Duan…”
However, he was interrupted before he could continue to ask.
The sound of sword whistling in the air interrupted him.
He was shocked to discover the four Vice Fort Masters Duan Ling Tian was staring at had a bloody hole on their throats.
Dazzling red and fresh flood gushed out of the bloody wounds. A few moments later, the four bodies fell to the ground.
The four great Vice Fort Masters of Skywolf Fort had all died in just a blink of an eye.
From the very beginning to the end, all Qing Lang heard was the sound of sword whistling that disappeared as soon as it appeared. He did not see any evidence of Duan Ling Tian making a move at all.
Everyone was still shocked when Duan Ling Tian looked at Sun Zhong and sneered. He calmly asked, “Is this sincere enough?”
In Sun Zhong’s eyes, the smile on Duan Ling Tian’s mouth was no different from a devil’s smile.
At this moment, all Sun Zhong felt was a sense of coldness that crept up from the bottom of his feet to the top of his head.
“It’s enough! It’s enough!” Sun Zhong hurriedly nodded. He lifted his hand and threw Luo Jin to Duan Ling Tian. “Sir Duan, I’m sorry for offending you. I hope you’ll forgive me!”
Sun Zhong’s forehead was clammy from cold sweat. It was his first time encountering such a terrifying powerhouse.
Who the hell said Duan Ling Tian had a powerhouse hidden behind him who killed Feng Tong?! It was all false!
Duan Ling Tian himself was already a terrifying powerhouse!
Among all the people present, he was the only who saw Duan Ling Tian lifting his hand. However, he did not see the part where Duan Ling Tian’s sword ray shot out and pierced the throats of the four great Vice Fort Masters.
At that moment, he knew it would be easy for Duan Ling Tian to kill him.
“Good.” Duan Ling Tian caught Luo Jin easily. Luo Jin did not even have time to catch his breath before he was thrown into the big combat ring situated in the Skywolf Fort’s outer fort.
Luo Jin whose Dantian had long been crippled, and thus lost his Origin Energy, dropped down at increasing speed.
“Uncle! Save me!
“Uncle! Save me, please! I don’t want to die!”
“I don’t want to die!!”
Luo Jin who was terrified by the way Duan Ling Tian dealt with things finally regained his senses when he was thrown by Duan Ling Tian. Horror dawned on his face as he screamed for help from Luo Fu at the top of his lungs.
Luo Fu took a deep breath as he painfully closed his eyes. A hint of bitterness could be faintly seen on the corner of his mouth.
Although he wanted to save Luo Jin, he could not do anything at all.
With the strength that Duan Ling Tian currently possessed, it would be as easy as killing a chicken or cutting grass for Duan Ling Tian to kill him.
If he saved Luo Jin, not only would he fail, he would be forfeiting his life as well.
Due to this reason, he could only watch idly.
His own life was the most important after all.
Luo Jin was still screaming up to the moment he fell on the combat ring. His body slammed viciously on the ground, turning into a pulpy and bloody mess.
Silence immediately descended on the scene.
“Luo Fu, what’s going on really?” Qing Lang’s voice finally broke the silence.
Qing Lang looked at Luo Fu fiercely. “Didn’t I warn all of you previously to not mess with Duan Ling Tian no matter what?”
