Chapter 1120: Killing the Sword’s Sect Sect Leader
Translator: EndlessFantasy Translation Editor: EndlessFantasy Translation
Ever since Feng Tian Wu left the Martial Emperor’s secret treasure, she had not left Duan Ling Tian’s side. All of them knew this very well.
Therefore, betraying Duan Ling Tian meant that they had also betrayed Feng Tian Wu. Due to this, they felt a little guilty and ashamed when they look at Feng Tian Wu.
“Wu’er!” Soon after, Feng Wu Dao noticed Feng Tian Wu. He smiled and flew to her in an instant.
However, in the next moment, the smile on his face faltered when he realized Feng Tian Wu’s gaze was a little different. It looked cold and confused as though she was looking at a stranger.
When Feng Wu Dao realized something was wrong, he immediately turned to Duan Ling Tian and asked, “L-Laddie Ling Tian, w-what’s going on?”
“Uncle Feng, Tian Wu temporarily lost her memory. However, please don’t worry. Just give me a little time, I’ll be able to restore her memory,” Duan Ling Tian replied truthfully and reassured him.
“What?! Lost her memory? How did this happen?” Horror dawned on Feng Wu Dao’s face.
Feng Tian Wu looked at Feng Wu Dao and asked in a hesitant soft and voice, “Y-You’re my dad?” Her tone was cautious.
“Yes, it’s me! I’m your father!” Feng Wu Dao immediately replied. He turned to look at Duan Ling Tian unhappily, “Laddie Ling Tian, what’s going on? How did Wu’er lose her memory suddenly without any reason?”
“Uncle Feng, it’s a long story.” Although it was a long story, Duan Ling Tian told him everything without any reservation.
“It’s my fault for not protecting Tian Wu properly.” After Duan Ling Tian finished retelling the story, he sighed with a guilty expression on his face.
“Then, does this mean the Fire Spirit Body’s energy inside Wu’er is now gone? It’s no longer a threat to her?” This was the matter Feng Wu Dao was most concerned about.
The Fire Spirit Body in his daughter’s had always been the source of his worries and headaches. Now that he found out his daughter no longer had a Fire Spirit Body, he heaved a sigh of relief like he had been relieved of a burden he had been shouldering for many years.
“Yes.” Duan Ling Tian nodded.
“In a way, this is a blessing in disguise. I don’t blame you for this matter.” A rare smile appeared on Feng Wu Dao’s face. “As for Wu’er’s memory, I’m sure you’ll be able to help her regain her memory eventually.”
“Don’t worry, Uncle Feng. I’ll definitely help Tian Wu regain her memory,” Duan Ling Tian replied earnestly.
“However, how did those Martial Emperors from the three great second-rate forces find out both of you were in the Darkhan Dynasty? How did they know both of you were in the Crimson Sky Kingdom?” Feng Wu Dao was puzzled.
“Well, we must thank a few people in the Blade Sect for this.” Duan Ling Tian looked at the group of Blade Sect’s senior officials, including Saber 5, Sword 13, and the Sect Leaders of the Saber and Sword Sect, and sneered.
Previously, when they heard Duan Ling Tian managed to escape from the evil clutches of the three Martial Monarchs, the Blade Sect’s senior officials were filled with disbelief. In their opinion, this was impossible.
When they had disclosed Duan Ling Tian’s background to the Martial Monarchs from the three great second-rate forces, they were certain Duan Ling Tian would die.
Thus, they were shocked when they saw Duan Ling Tian again.
Initially, they assumed Duan Ling Tian was not caught by the Martial Monarchs from the three great second-rate forces because he was simply not in the Darkhan Dynasty. That was probably how he escaped his doom.
After hearing the exchange between Duan Ling Tian and Feng Wu Dao, they realized Duan Ling Tian and Feng Tian Wu had encountered the Martial Monarchs and escaped from them. However, they had no idea how Duan Ling Tian and Feng Tian Wu managed to do that.
Duan Ling Tian had breezed through the most important part and only said that he and Feng Tian Wu had dodged the crisis, but they had to pay quite a hefty price for that. Feng Tian Wu had lost her memory because of that.
“Duan Ling Tian, it’s indeed our Blade Sect’s fault regarding this matter… We won’t deny this.” The Sect Leader of Saber Sect sighed and said regretfully, “However, if we didn’t do as we were told at that time, the Blade Sect would’ve been annihilated. We had no choice at all!”
“That’s right. We had no choice at all!” At once, many of the Blade Sect’s senior officials chimed in as well.
“No choice at all?” The smirk on Duan Ling Tian’s mouth widened as his eyes swept across the Sect Leaders of the Saber Sect and Sword Sect, Saber 5, and Sword 13. “Isn’t is because all of you fear death?”
The moment Duan Ling Tian’s words left his mouth, the Sect Leaders of Saber Sect and Sword Sect turned pale immediately. Saber 5 and Sword 13, on the other hand, had a guilty expression on their faces as they smiled wryly.
“Duan Ling Tian, just because you’re lucky and managed to escape from the powerhouses of the three second-rate forces, don’t think you’re really powerful! This is the Blade Sect, it’s not a place where you can simply cause a ruckus!” The Sect Leader of Sword Sect shouted out of embarrassment.
“It’s not a place where I can simply cause a ruckus? Really?” Duan Ling Tian snorted.
“You’re looking for death!” The Sect Leader of Sword Sect originally had a bad temper. Now that Duan Ling Tian had enraged him, he could no longer hold back and released his Origin Energy. The Ninth Level Advance Sword Concept and the other Ninth Level Advance Concepts followed closely like shadows.
The Sect Leader of Sword Sect seemed to have transformed into a gigantic sword that was about to fall on Duan Ling Tian and cut him in half.
“Please have mercy, Sect Leader.” Horror dawned on Sword 13. Although he wanted to rescue Duan Ling Tian, it was too late.
“Idiot!’ Duan Ling Tian spat out this one word unhurriedly. He casually lifted one of his hand and punched out to intercept the attack.
In just an instant, a five-colored energy soared up from Duan Ling Tian’s punch. It was his Fused Profundity!
Fused Profundity burst out like a gigantic beast with an open and bloody mouth and collided head-on with the gigantic sword the Sect Leader of Sword Sect had transformed into. It swallowed the gigantic sword in just a mouth.
In just a second, the rolling Fused Profundity shrouded the gigantic sword the Sect Leader of Sword Sect had transformed into without leaving any trace behind.
Without warning, the menacing Fused Profundity quivered before it vanished before everyone’s eyes. Duan Ling Tian withdrew it smoothly.
The entire place fell silent.
The only sound they could hear was the heaving breathing from the Blade Sect’s senior officials.
The Sect Leader of Sword Sect from their Blade Sect had just been killed in just one blow?
If it was not for the fact that they witnessed this with their own eyes, they would not have believed it.
Soon after, the Sect Leader of Saber Sect regained his senses and pointed a trembling finger at Duan Ling Tian. He asked with a horrified expression, “Y-You have broken through to the Martial Monarch Stage?”
“Do you want to give it a go as well?” Duan Ling Tian who had just killed the Sect Leader of Sword Sect with just one punch licked his dry lips as he looked at the Sect Leader of Saber Sect with interest.
The moment the latter heard this, he immediately shut his mouth and no longer dared to utter another word.
At this moment, everyone, be it Feng Wu Dao, Sword 13 or Saber 5, was staring at Duan Ling Tian in disbelief. They did not expect Duan Ling Tian’s strength would be so terrifying now.
He killed the Sect Leader of Sword Sect, a person who was at the peak of the Void, with just one punch.
“Since the Blade Sect is neither virtuous or righteous, there’s no reason for me to remain here any longer.” Feng Wu Dao looked slightly enraged as he announced coldly that he was leaving the Blade Sect.
“I used to be a Blade Sect’s disciple?” Feng Tian Wu muttered and quickly followed suit to announce, “In that case, from now onward, I no longer have anything to do with the Blade Sect.”
Feng Wu Dao and his daughter both announced their departure from the Blade Sect.
Duan Ling Tian looked at Sword 13 as he said, “Senior, I still remember that I owe you a debt of gratitude. Today, I won’t cause any trouble for the Blade Sect for your sake. However, the debt of gratitude and revenge offset each other. There’s no longer any debt between us.” His voice was calm and cold.
Honestly, he was very disappointed when he found out it was Blade Sect that disclosed his background to the three great second-rate forces.
Naturally, the person he was most disappointed in was Sword 13.
Other than Feng Wu Dao who joined the Blade Sect later on, he only acknowledged Sword 13 alone among all the Blade Sect’s senior officials. This was because Sword 13 had saved his life twice before.
A good deed had to be repaid by manyfold, let alone a debt of life… However, he only wanted to sever his relationship with Sword 13 now.
“Sigh…” Sword 13 opened his mouth, seemingly about to say something. Alas, no words left his mouth at all. All that could be heard was just a sigh.
“Duan Ling Tian! You’ve misunderstood my Master!” At this moment, a voice reverberated in the air followed by the appearance of a figure.
It was a young man whom Duan Ling Tian was familiar with — it was Su Li.
“Misunderstood?” Duan Ling Tian frowned. A hint of bafflement could be seen in his eyes.
Su Li nodded before he quickly explained, “Actually, from the very beginning until the end, Master did not agree with disclosing your background because he didn’t want any harm to befall you… However, the Sect Leader of Sword Sect who had long known about your background ignored Master’s advice and told them everything. Master had no say at all from the beginning until the end. He did not betray you!” Su Li said in one breath.
“I’m sorry, senior.” The moment Su Li finished his words, Duan Ling Tian fell silent for a moment before he looked at Sword 13 apologetically. “I’ll repay you for the things that you’ve done for me, senior. On the premise that you no longer stay in this cold-blooded Blade Sect! Moreover, I’m certain the Sect Leader of Sword Sect was not the only one who had a say at that time.”
When Duan Ling Tian reached the end of his sentence, he began to study the Sect Leader of Saber Sect who looked a little guilty and the group of Blade Sect’s senior officials, including Saber 5.
Although the Blade Sect’s senior officials were unhappy with Duan Ling Tian’s scrutiny, none of them dared to express their displeasure at all.
What a joke!
Did they not witness the scene of Duan Ling Tian killing the Sect Leader of Sword Sect who was at the peak of the Void in just one punch?
Even if they collectively attacked him, they would only be given a one-way ticket to hell.
“Su Li, this Blade Sect is so ruthless that they might even betray you and your relatives in the future! Why don’t you follow me?” Duan Ling Tian looked at Su Li. “Believe me. If you follow me, you’ll have a brighter future waiting for you!”
“Duan Ling Tian.” Su Li shook his head. “If Master had also betrayed you, I would follow you. However, Master didn’t betray you. He did not let me down at all. Even if there’s nothing else, just the gratitude for Master’s teachings all these years, I’ll choose to remain here.” Su Li smiled when he reached the end of his sentence. There were no regrets contained in his smile at all.
