Translator: EndlessFantasy Translation Editor: EndlessFantasy Translation
Duan Ling Tian was stunned when he heard the old man’s words.
No wonder the people from Gold-Devouring Organization did not dare to kill as they pleased. They did not want to offend the Yin Yang Sect.
It made sense.
Yin Yang Sect was a first-rate force in the Inner Land after all. It would be easy for them to annihilate the Gold-Devouring Organization.
It would be impossible for the Gold-Devouring Organization to escape if the Yin Yang Sect attacked.
“Little brother, you should leave right now… Apart from the man that you killed earlier and the one who tried to swindle you, many of them hide around here. They must have already informed the organization about this!”
The old man advised, “The Gold-Devouring Organization is just nearby. One or two of the ten guardians of the organizations might come. They’re powerhouses at the peak of the Void!”
“Thanks for warning me… But I would like to stay and watch.” Duan Ling Tian smiled as though the old man’s words did not bother him at all.
‘Peak of the Void huh?’
“You want to watch?” The old man’s lips twitched, and he subsequently shook his head when he heard Duan Ling Tian’s words. He had wasted his effort trying to warn Duan Ling Tian.
However, he did not continue persuading Duan Ling Tian.
He had done everything he could. Whatever happened next was beyond his control.
Just like the old man said, half an hour later, the sound of wind whistling resounded in the sky. Three men arrived at the Ruo Shui Riverside in just a blink of an eye.
Although the three of them were old, they looked energetic. It was obvious their cultivation base was pretty good.
When the three old men appeared, the middle-aged man who tried to sell 3 tokens to Duan Ling Tian immediately bowed respectfully.”Three guardians.” His tone was humble.
Everyone present on the scene turned solemn when they heard how the middle-aged man addressed the three old men.
There were only ten guardians in the Gold-Devouring Organization, but they sent three of them?
Those people who were indifferent earlier turned to look at the three old men who had just arrived.
“So who was the one who killed our Gold-Devouring Organization’s man?” One of the old men asked with his deep voice.
The middle-aged man pointed at Duan Ling Tian immediately and shouted at the top of his lungs, “Guardian Liu, it’s him! It’s him!”
The old man glared at Duan Ling Tian and asked with his deep voice, “You killed our man?”
Duan Ling Tian looked away after glancing at the old man once. He ignored the old man and did not reply him.
“Guardian Liu, look! Look at how arrogant he is! How dare he ignore you.” The middle-aged man added fuel to the flame as though he was trying to start a fight.
The old man’s expression looked terrible, but he did not impulsively attack. He asked with his deep voice, “May I ask who are you?”
“Nobody. It’s not worth mentioning,” Duan Ling Tian replied nonchalantly.
The old man was stunned after hearing what Duan Ling Tian said. However, he did not believe Duan Ling Tian at all.
Would a nobody dare to kill people from the Gold-Devouring Organization?
Would a nobody dare to ignore him?
“Sir, the Gold-Devouring Organization’s business is mutually beneficial… Moreover, if someone is unwilling, we would never force them to purchase the tokens from us. Don’t you think it’s unreasonable for you to kill our man?” The other old man asked coldly as he glared at Duan Ling Tian.
“Mutually beneficial?” Duan Ling Tian laughed as though he had heard a joke after he heard what the old man said.
“Isn’t it?” The third old man scoffed. His eyes gleamed coldly when he looked at Duan Ling Tian as though he wanted to devour him.
Duan Ling Tian nodded and pretended to contemplate the matter before he said, “Well, you might be right if we exclude the fact that you’re trying to swindle people.”
“If that’s the case, why did you kill our man? Do you think our organization’s a pushover?” The old man asked with his deep voice. His voice was as cold as a thaw hole.
“I didn’t know about the Gold-Devouring Organization when I killed him… Are you satisfied with my answer?” Duan Ling Tian stared into the old man’s eyes and responded with no signs of backing down.
Duan Ling Tian’s indifferent attitude provoked the three old men. The three men shouted in unison after they looked at each other. “You… You’re asking for death!”
At the same time, Origin Energy ran rampant on their bodies as Concepts trailed behind like a shadow. They looked like three bolts of lightning as they charged at Duan Ling Tian with a ferocious expression on their faces.
The three of them charged with all their might at Duan Ling Tian’s weak spots. It was obvious they planned to kill Duan Ling Tian with a blow.
Duan Ling Tian remained unmoved in the face of their attack.
He was calm, and there was no trace of panic on his face at all.
‘Is he in shock?’ Most of the onlookers thought he was in shock.
The old man who advised Duan Ling Tian earlier could not help but sigh when he saw this.
Would this have happened if he had heeded the old man’s advice?
However, the old man’s eyes widened in the next second as though he had seen something shocking.
“Hmph!” A thunderous scoff resounded in the air. Everyone’s hearts jolted and their lifeblood pressure increased when they heard the thunderous sound.
At the same time, they heard a fleeting sound of sword whistling.
In the next second, they saw a neat sword wound on the necks three old men who were charging ferociously toward Duan Ling Tian just a moment ago. It was obvious the wound was caused by a sword.
Fresh blood began pouring out of the wounds. The three old men’s eyes dimmed. However, their bodies continued moving toward Duan Ling Tian from their earlier momentum.
At this moment, a specter-like silhouette preemptively appeared in front of Duan Ling Tian and swung his sword.
‘Whoosh! Whoosh! Whoosh! Whoosh! Whoosh!’
The deafening sound of sword whistling reverberated in the air.
Subsequently, the people watched as a sword glow appeared and shrouded the three old men’s bodies.
The three men vanished soon after. Only their blood remained in the aftermath.
When the three-foot-long blade formed from Origin Energy disappeared, the silhouette in front of Duan Ling Tian punched his fist into the air and created an explosion. It stirred up the airwaves, creating strong gusts of wind that swept away all the blood.
Not a speck of blood touched Duan Ling Tian, it did not even touch the man standing in front of him.
The entire place fell silent.
Everyone’s eyes were trained on the spot near Duan Ling Tian. To be exact, they were staring at the silhouette standing before Duan Ling Tian.
The person had attacked as fast as lightning. The Heaven and Earth Energy did not even begin to whir, let alone the forming of the Heaven and Earth Phenomenon.
“How dare you attack my Young Master, you trash! You’re asking for death!”
The voice came from the man standing before Duan Ling Tian. It was none other than Xiong Quan.
Apart from his cultivation base that had broken through to the First Level Martial Monarch Stage, he had also further comprehended the Sword Dao contained in the word ‘Sword’ that Sword Saint Feng Qing Yang left behind.
He had now comprehended the Third Level Monarch Stage Wind Profundity.
With his ability, it was easy for him to kill three Peak Level Void Stage martial artists in one blow.
In fact, he really did kill the three guardians from the Gold-Devouring Organization in one blow!
There were ten guardians in the Gold-Devouring Organization. All of them were Peak Level Void Stage martial artists.
From the beginning until the end, Xiong Quan did not mobilize the Heaven and Earth Energy to form the Heaven and Earth Phenomenon at all. Even the three guardians did not have time to mobilize their Heaven and Earth Energies.
Xiong Quan’s speed was ridiculously fast!
Soon after, somebody regained their senses and exclaimed loudly, “A Martial Monarch powerhouse!”
Xiong Quan suddenly became the center of attention.
However, their eyes quickly shifted to Duan Ling Tian when they recalled what Xiong Quan had said earlier.
“That Martial Monarch powerhouse called this purple-clad young man ‘Young Master?'”
“Wow! He has a Martial Monarch powerhouse as his attendant… Who is that purple-clad young man?”
“I’m sure he comes from a first-rate force or somewhere equivalent to it.”
Many people began to discuss among themselves. The way they looked at Duan Ling Tian was completely different now.
Duan Ling Tian seemed to be shrouded in mystery. They even thought the way Duan Ling Tian acted earlier was acceptable.
The middle-aged man who attempted to swindle Duan Ling Tian and the others immediately ran as soon as he regained his senses.
He only hoped to leave this place as fast as he could.
Perhaps he might live if he ran fast enough.
However, would he really be able to escape?
The answer was no.
As Xiong Quan lifted his arm, a sword glow appeared and pierced through the middle-aged man’s back as he was running away. He was instantly killed.
“Xiong Quan, you’ve comprehended the Third Level Sword Profundity?” Duan Ling Tian noticed the extraordinary Sword Profundity that was entwined around Xiong Quan’s Origin Energy. He could not help but ask in shock, “When did you comprehend it?”
“Hehe.” Xiong Quan chuckled when he heard Duan Ling Tian’s question, “I’ve only comprehended it earlier.”
While Duan Ling Tian and Xiong Quan were talking, the people on the scene were still stunned. Many of them were curious about Duan Ling Tian’s identity.
“The three guardians are dead… I must report to the leader that there’s a Martial Monarch powerhouse here!” Somebody snuck away.
