Translator: EndlessFantasy Translation Editor: EndlessFantasy Translation
Apart from that, the Gold Thug also comprehended two types of Profundities and one Concept. They were the Sixth Level Monarch Stage Profundity, the First Level Monarch Stage Profundity, and the Ninth Level Void Transformation Concept.
The former was similar to the power of 7,000 ancient horned dragons while the latter was similar to 2,000 and 1,000 ancient horned dragons’ strength each.
Together with the Origin Energy and the Spirit Weapon, the Gold Thug could mobilize the strength of two ancient black dragons and 5,000 ancient horned dragons at his full force.
Whoosh! Whoosh! Whoosh! Whoosh! Whoosh!
The whistling of a sword reverberated in the swift boat. The purple and gold silhouettes that were flashing brought the fight above the sky unintentionally.
“His strength’s more powerful than the Gold Thug’s!” An exclaim was heard at that moment.
The people on the swift boat gazed into the sky in unison and realized the Heaven and Earth Phenomenon that appeared later. There were two ancient black dragons’ silhouette and 6,000 ancient horned dragons’ silhouette.
That was Duan Ling Tian’s strength, the purple-clad young man who was entangled in a vigorous fight with the Gold Thug at the moment!
His First Level Fused Profundity was similar to the power of two ancient black dragons!
A Second Level Martial Monarch Stage Origin Energy at full force was similar to the strength of 3,000 ancient horned dragons. By using a Quasi-Royal Grade Spirit Sword as a boost, it would elevate it to the strength of 6,000 ancient horned dragons.
“Although his strength’s more powerful than the Gold Thug by 1,000 ancient horned dragons, he doesn’t seem to have the upper hand.” Very soon, many people noticed.
“The Gold Thug’s the leader of the Four Southern River Thugs, and he has gone through at least 10,000 fights in his life. He has reached perfection in his combat experience and techniques,” some of the more experienced people mumbled.
“Even if that’s the case, isn’t it ridiculous? How could he ignore the gap of the 1,000 ancient horned dragons’ strength?” Many of them were stunned.
To them, it was something unfathomable.
“Young Master… Seems to be holding back on his full strength,” Xiong Quan mumbled softly as he looked at the silhouettes that had been intersecting each other before his eyes.
“Touchstone,” Feng Tian Wu spoke with her beautiful lips which was a rare occurrence, her breath fragrant like flowers.
Just like what Feng Tian Wu said, Duan Ling Tian treated the Gold Thug as his touchstone at the moment.
Ever since possessing such strength, although he had killed a couple of Martial Monarch powerhouses, their abilities were a huge gap compared to his. They were not fighting at the same level as he was.
However, the Gold Thug’s ability was a challenge to him that day.
Naturally, the Gold Thug managed to threaten him under the circumstance of Duan Ling Tian not using the Sword Profundity.
Until now, Duan Ling Tian had only used Origin Energy, Fused Profundity and the Quasi-Royal Grade Spirit Sword in his hand. He had yet to use the First Level Monarch Stage Sword Profundity.
However, he noticed his inadequacy as the fight went on.
The Gold Thug was much better than him when it came to combat experience and techniques. He had cultivated each and every martial skill including movement, combat and defensive martial skills to their optimum level.
According to Duan Ling Tian’s speculation, the Gold Thug’s three martial skills must be on the heaven rank advanced level.
“You have 1,000 ancient horned dragon’s strength more than I do and the fight’s a tie… Useless!” Gold Thug mocked after parting from Duan Ling Tian once again. His tone was sarcastic and filled with disdain.
Although he said that, there was fear deep in his eyes.
He was lucky that Duan Ling Tian’s combat techniques and experience were far behind him. Otherwise, he would have been doomed based on the gap of the 1,000 ancient horned dragons’ strength.
“Oh really?” Very soon, a cold voice came into the Gold Thug’s ears. It was Duan Ling Tian’s voice.
As the Gold Thug spun around, he saw Duan Ling Tian swinging his Quasi-Royal Grade Spirit Sword, prepared to perform a sword skill that he had not shown earlier.
“What’s happening?” As soon as he saw Duan Ling Tian lift his arm, the Gold Thug felt a chill that rose from the bottom of his feet straight to his head.
He had been around the southern area of Ruo Shui River where he adopted a sharp instinct. His instinct had saved his life many times, which was why he always trusted his instinct.
“So, he was holding back just now?” The Gold Thug looked terrible.
Nine Dragon’s Radiant Flash!
Duan Ling Tian finally moved. As he swung the Quasi-Royal Grade Spirit Sword, nine sword rays flew out rampantly in the air and turned into nine Divine Dragons that appeared alive.
Eighteen ultimate beams of lights were shot from the nine Divine Dragons’ eyes and landed directly on the Gold Thug’s vulnerable body parts.
It was sufficient for the eighteen ultimate beams of lights to hit the vulnerable parts all over the Gold Thug’s body.
The Gold Thug’s expression changed. He was sure that Duan Ling Tian had not shown all that he had earlier.
Without any further delay, he rotated the Origin Energy in his body immediately and performed his defensive martial skill. A defensive luster rose within his body and enveloped his entire being in it.
Apart from that, he swung the sword in his hand like a wind blowing towards the eighteen ultimate beams of lights that were coming towards him.
However, he did not perform his movement martial skill.
It was not that he did want to; he did not have the time to.
The speed of the eighteen ultimate beams of lights exceeded his speed of dodging.
Whoosh! Whoosh! Whoosh! Whoosh! Whoosh!
The eighteen ultimate beams of lights dashed at Gold Thug like rain pelting down. Although the Gold Thug managed to block twelve of them, the remaining six pierced through his body anyway.
Naturally, the ultimate beams of lights that he managed to block were aiming at his vulnerable spots.
There was nothing else that he could do than allow the remaining six ultimate beams of lights to hit him. They were aiming for his legs, and there were three bloody holes on each of his legs in the next second.
His legs were severed just like that!
Although he would not lose his life because of the assault and neither would it affect his ability, he was scared.
What if the eighteen ultimate beams of lights that Duan Ling Tian performed the next time aimed at his vulnerable body parts?
Would he escape death once again?
“Such a powerful sword skill!
“So, he has been holding back… I was just wondering how would it be possible for the fight with the Gold Thug to be a tie when he has 1,000 ancient horned dragons’ strength more than the Gold Thug.”
The people on the swift boat flashed happy smiles on their faces one after another seeing the Gold Thug’s legs severed all of a sudden.
They knew that they had dodged a bullet this time.
“So, he’s actually that powerful… I didn’t have to warn him at the Ruo Shui Riverside earlier after all,” the old man who stood among the crowd sighed.
“Young Master!” Xiong Quan displayed a charming smile on his face.
Feng Tian Wu stood there quietly while a faint smile emerged on the edge of her lips.
“Sir, I admit that I can’t fight you… Since you didn’t lose anything today, let’s put this to an end now. How about I give you all the fortune that I’ve been saving all these years?” The Gold Thug, whose legs were severed and was as pale as a sheet, wanted to call it even with Duan Ling Tian.
Naturally, calling it even was just a disguise.
He was frightened. He was afraid of Duan Ling Tian now.
He knew if their fight were to go on, not only would he not be able to run, he would even die by Duan Ling Tian’s sword.
“Isn’t your fortune mine if I kill you anyway?” Duan Ling Tian smiled in disdain and said sarcastically.
“Whatever is in my Spatial Ring’s just a tenth of the fortune that I possess… If you kill me, you’ll lose the hefty fortune that I’ve kept elsewhere!” Hearing what Duan Ling Tian said, the Gold Thug’s expression remained unchanged and he said calmly.
“Really?” The smile on Duan Ling Tian’s face was getting wider. “It’s my first time hearing that… A ruthless pirate would put his fortune away somewhere else.”
“Is it because you don’t have enough Spatial Rings? I don’t think so.” Duan Ling Tian was observing the Gold Thug while feeling bemused.
His bright eyes seemed to be able to pierce through the Gold Thug’s heart.
At that moment, the Gold Thug could no longer keep his face calm as he looked dreadful.
Naturally, he had not put his fortune away somewhere else.
He had indeed stored all of his fortune in the Spatial Ring that he had with him wherever he went. To him, that was the safest place to keep his fortune.
However, never had he thought that such a young man would exist in the swift boat that he had full confidence in robbing. The man’s ability was so suppressive that he was suffocating.
Furthermore, his life was in the hands of the man right now.
“Do you want to live?” As the Gold Thug was feeling despair and wondering if he should fight with all that he had left, a clear voice reached his ears.
“You… Are you willing to let go of me?” The Gold Thug’s heart jolted when he heard that, and he looked at Duan Ling Tian with hope.
He could tell that it was this purple-clad young man before his eyes who had asked the question.
Everyone was fearful of death, including him.
Why would he want to die if he could live?
“I could let you go.” Duan Ling Tian took a careful look at the Gold Thug for a while and nodded thoughtfully.
“Thank you, thank you!” The Gold Thug thanked him immediately. He revealed a smile on his face; it was a grateful smile that came from escaping death.
“You can thank me after agreeing to my conditions.” Duan Ling Tian grinned evilly.
As the Gold Thug felt goosebumps rise on him, he was anxious at the same time.
There was definitely a condition for Duan Ling Tian to let him go.
He made up his mind at that moment.
No matter what condition Duan Ling Tian was to name, he would do anything to satisfy him even if he had to give up all of the fortune that he looted throughout his life.
To him, his life was the most important thing while nothing else mattered.
As long as he lived, why would he have to worry about making a fortune back with the ability that he possessed?
It was quiet on the swift boat. The conversation between Duan Ling Tian and the Gold Thug was heard crystal clear by everyone on the boat. Most of them to had a change of expression.
“This purple-clad young man has the intention of letting the Gold Thug go?”
“Isn’t that releasing the tiger back to the mountain?”
Naturally, nobody dared to say anything even though many of them wanted to stop the purple-clad young man. They had no right to tell him what to do since he was the sole reason for their survival.
“Young Master?” Xiong Quan had doubt written all over his face. He had no idea what was Duan Ling Tian trying to do.
Feng Tian Wu was the only one who showed no emotion on her face. Her expression would not change even if Mount Tai were to collapse before her. She had full faith in Duan Ling Tian.
“What condition is that?” The Gold Thug took a deep breath and asked.
“I’ve prepared two conditions for you… You’ll only have to agree to one, and I won’t kill you,” Duan Ling Tian paused as he spoke. A cold gleam flashed in his eyes as he enunciated word for word, “The first condition is… Be my dog!”
