Translator: EndlessFantasy Translation Editor: EndlessFantasy Translation
“Be my dog!” Silence descended on the swift boat as soon as Duan Ling Tian was done speaking.
It was an absolute humiliation!
At this moment, many people on the swift boat had a smile on their faces. They realized Duan Ling Tian did that for no reason other than to humiliate Gold Thug. He did not plan to let Gold Thug go at all.
In their opinion, Gold Thug who was at the Sixth Level Martial Monarch Stage had to be prideful. It was quite unlikely he would agree to such a ridiculous condition. He would probably rather die.
“You!!” Gold Thug had expected Duan Ling Tian to name his two conditions. However, his expression changed drastically as soon as heard Duan Ling Tian’s first condition.
Be his dog?
At this moment, Gold Thug only felt his rage boiling up to his head. His breath quickened, and it seemed as though Origin Energy would burst out from his body at any given time.
“What? You don’t agree with the first condition?” Duan Ling Tian asked calmly. His expression remained unchanged when he faced the enraged Gold Thug.
Duan Ling Tian’s words were like a splash of cold water to Gold Thug. It extinguished his rage for the moment.
“What’s your second condition?” After listening to Duan Ling Tian’s reminder, Gold Thug recalled he would only have to agree to either one of the two conditions the purple-clad young man named in order to live.
Since he could not fulfill the first condition, he might be able to fulfill the second one.
Meanwhile, everyone on the swift boat had their eyes trained on Duan Ling Tian.
Many of them were anxious. They hoped the second condition Duan Ling Tian named would be as ridiculous as the first one.
That was the only way to make Gold Thug reject both conditions.
If Gold Thug rejected the two conditions, he would die.
They would only feel relieved if Gold Thug died.
“The second condition is…” Duan Ling Tian said unhurriedly as he looked into Gold Thug’s eyes. He paused as he reached this point in the sentence. Everyone, including Gold Thug, held their breath.
“Sever your Dantian!” Duan Ling Tian enunciated his words clearly as everyone watched.
Sever his Dantian!
Duan Ling Tian’s words were like a bolt of thunder that struck everyone present.
Many of them smiled after they regained their senses.
In their opinion, this purple-clad young man had no intention of letting Gold Thug live at all. Otherwise, his two conditions would not be so harsh.
No matter which condition Gold Thug agreed to, it would be worse than death to him!
Gold Thug looked terrible when he heard Duan Ling Tian’s second condition. The Origin Energy in his body erupted from his rage and turned into a milky flame.
Gold Thug stared at Duan Ling Tian as he gritted his teeth. He shouted, “You have no intention of letting me go at all!”
If he agreed to the first condition, he would lose his dignity. It would be worse than death to him.
If he agreed to the second condition, he would lose his cultivation base. It was also worse than death to him.
It would be impossible for him to leave the swift boat if he severed his Dantian since he would have to face the people’s wrath. He would definitely die at that time.
“Tsk tsk… Look at you. I’ve already named the two conditions. I promise I won’t kill you as long as you agree to either one of them,” Duan Ling Tian mocked as he shook his head.
“What’s the difference between killing me and me agreeing to one of the conditions you named?” Gold Thug asked furiously.
“The first condition guarantees you’ll be able to live. The second one… guarantees you won’t die by my hands.” There was a faint smile on Duan Ling Tian’s face.
Gold Thug shuddered. His face turned gloomier after he listened to Duan Ling Tian’s words.
Soon after, he saw a silhouette from the corner of his eyes. It was a fiery-red silhouette. He thought to himself, ‘If I’m going to die, I must bring a sacrifice with me!”
Naturally, his eyes were trained on Feng Tian Wu.
“Trying to drag other people to die with you? You’re not qualified!” Duan Ling Tian’s voice sounded at the moment Gold Thug was poised to attack. It scared Gold Thug so much that his rumbling Origin Energy immediately calmed down.
All of a sudden, Duan Ling Tian released a majestic wave of energy.
His Origin Energy rose and turned into a milky flame.
Subsequently, the milky flame transformed into a five-colored flame.
Everyone was terrified by the five-colored flame.
Meanwhile, the Heaven and Earth Energy rumbled above Duan Ling Tian’s head. Soon after, it formed the Heaven and Earth Phenomenon.
His energy was sent into the Quasi Royal Grade Spirit Sword in his hand as the Heaven and Earth Phenomenon formed the silhouettes of two ancient black dragons and 6,000 ancient horned dragons.
The people present were familiar with this scene.
However, everyone, apart from Duan Ling Tian, Feng Tian Wu, and Xiong Quan, widened their eyes in shock.
What did they see?!
They saw the Heaven and Earth Energy rumbled above Duan Ling Tian’s once again before the silhouettes of 2,000 ancient horned dragons appeared.
In the meantime, the five-colored flame rose on Duan Ling Tian’s body and transformed into the shape of a sword. The ferocious sword aura seemed as though it could rend the world.
“First… First Level Monarch Stage Sword Profundity!” Someone exclaimed.
“So he was holding back when he fought Gold Thug earlier… He can utilize the strength of two ancient black dragons and 7,000 ancient horned dragons!”
“He could’ve instantly killed Gold Thug if he uses his full strength earlier since there’s a 3,000 ancient horned dragons gap between them!”
“Indeed, the gap of 3,000 ancient horned dragons is too much. It supersedes any techniques and skills.”
People on the swift boat discussed among each other as the way they looked at Duan Ling Tian changed again.
The did not expect Duan Ling Tian was still holding back his power since he was already incredibly powerful when he fought Gold Thug earlier.
“You…You…” Gold Thug expression turned ugly as he looked at Duan Ling Tian in disbelief. “Why did you hold back such powerful strength when we fought earlier?”
“Don’t you dare play tricks with your insignificant ability… This is your last chance, are you going to agree with the first or second condition?”
“Or would you rather die?” Duan Ling Tian said calmly as he glared at Gold Thug.
His calmness was like a silent killing intent.
“I’ll give you ten breaths to think about it… If you don’t give me an answer after ten breaths, I’ll take it that you rather die!” Duan Ling Tian continued to harass Gold Thug who had turned pale and did not respond.
Gold Thug’s face terrible. He seemed subdued.
Be his dog?
He definitely could not bring himself to do that!
Would that not mean he was disappointing his three brothers who died if he agreed to that?
Severing his own Dantian?
The impossibility of bearing the pain of losing his cultivation base aside, he would probably be killed before he could even leave the swift boat if he severed his Dantian.
Many people on the swift boat wanted to kill him.
Five breaths passed in a blink of an eye. Duan Ling Tian reminded Gold Thug, “You have five breaths left.”
Duan Ling Tian’s voice entered Gold Thug’s ears, and he began to shudder.
However, he still had not come up with a decision.
“Three more breaths,” Duan Ling Tian said again after two breaths.
Duan Ling Tian’s words sounded like a curse to Gold Thug. He became even more terrified now.
He was only left with two paths before his eyes.
The first one allowed him to die with his dignity and pride intact.
The second one allowed him to live, but he would be the purple-clad young man’s dog.
He had considered the former, but he truly did not want to die like that.
He knew how difficult it was for him to raise his cultivation base throughout the years.
How hard did he work to achieve his current cultivation base?
Furthermore, he had a bigger goal!
He wanted to break through to Seventh Level Martial Monarch Stage, the Eighth and even the Ninth Level!
He even thought about becoming a Martial Emperor one day. Although the goal was far-fetched, it was still his goal. It was his ultimate goal.
However, there was no way he could achieve his goal if he died, let alone becoming a Martial Emperor.
Although the latter allowed him to live, he would completely lose his dignity.
Being a Sixth Level Martial Monarch Stage powerhouse’s dog was undoubtedly humiliating. Even if he lived, he would not feel proud of himself. It was a fate worse than death.
That was why he was in a dilemma.
Duan Ling Tian looked at Gold Thug calmly with indifference.
Initially, he planned to kill Gold Thug so he could meet Silver Thugs and Copper Thug that Tian Wu killed in hell.
However, after he mulled over it, he thought it would be waste to kill Gold Thug just like that since he was a Sixth Level Martial Monarch after all.
Thus, he thought of making Gold Thug his dog.
Naturally, it was risky.
Even if Gold Thug decided to become his dog, he was a double-edged sword.
Naturally, he did not think Gold Thug would be able to harm him directly. He was concerned he would harm the people around him. His biggest concern was Gold Thug would pretend to submit to him.
Two breaths passed by as Duan Ling Tian thought to himself. His eyes gleamed coldly as he reminded Gold Thug again, “One more breath left!”
If Gold Thug did not make his decision within one breath, he would kill him immediately and put everything to an end.
Although it would be a pity, he did not have to worry about him at least.
As soon as Duan Ling Tian spoke, everyone on the swift boat, including Feng Tian Wu and Xiong Quan, focused their eyes on Gold Thug.
They wanted to know what Gold Thug’s decision would be.
Would he forsake his dignity?
Or would he choose to die with his dignity intact!
