Translator: EndlessFantasy Translation Editor: EndlessFantasy Translation
A loud sound reverberated in the air when the woman was killed, instantly taking Duan Ling Tian by surprise. Nobody saw when Duan Ling Tian made a move, but a layer of invisible light shield rose and blocked the blood that splattered toward him and Tian Wu.
In the next instant, Duan Ling Tian looked at the assailant who was slowly walking into the pergola. His face turned grave immediately.
“What a beautiful woman!” When the luxuriously dressed young man brought the old man in, his gaze instantly landed on Feng Tian Wu. He completely ignored Duan Ling Tian.
His breathing quickened when he saw Feng Tian Wu’s extremely beautiful face.
When had he ever seen such a beauty?
“Lady, I’m called Wu Jie. I’m the son of the Sect Leader of True Martial Sect. I wonder what’s your name, miss?” The luxuriously dressed young man arrived before Feng Tian Wu. A warm smile appeared on that fairly handsome face. However, there were lust and desire in the depth of his eyes.
The desire to obtain this almost-perfect woman before him.
At the moment when Wu Jie greeted Feng Tian Wu in a refined and courteous manner, Feng Tian Wu replied with a cold and icy word, “Scram!”
Wu Jie was struck dumb for a moment.
From the moment Wu Jie killed the woman standing outside the pergola, the commotion had caught many people’s attention.
Due to this reason, Wu Jie’s failure in chatting up Feng Tian Wu and her rebuke to him was seen by everyone.
“The son of the Sect Leader of True Martial Sect?” When most of them discovered Wu Jie’s identity, they did not dare to say anything at all. However, their eyes were filled with scorn when they looked at him.
The True Martial Sect was also a first-rate force similar to the Zhou Clan in Ataraxia City and the former Yin Yang Sect.
Wu Jie felt extremely embarrassed when he noticed the scorn from the people in the surroundings. He tried to suppress the wrath rising in his heart. He looked at Feng Tian Wu again before he repeated, “I-I said I’m the son of the Sect Leader of True Martial Sect! The Young Sect Leader of True Martial Sect!”
However, the reply that Feng Tian Wu gave him was also the same word she had given him earlier. “Scram!”
Wu Jie’s body trembled slightly, and his expression began to turn wretched. When had he ever been ignored like that in front of a crowd? There was no difference to being humiliated.
The group of people watching the scene burst into an uproar. While they sneered at Wu Jie, they were looking at Feng Tian Wu in shock. They did not expect this woman to have the balls to treat the son of the Sect Leader of True Martial Sect in such a way.
Although the Sect Leader of True Martial Sect had two sons, the one he doted on the most was none other than his youngest son whom he obtained in his old age. He almost regarded him as his life.
“Bitch! I was nice to you! How dare you act so ungrateful!” Finally, Wu Jie could no longer suppress the flames of fury in his heart and completely erupted. He took a stride forward and raised both hands to grab Feng Tian Wu. “Aren’t you arrogant? From today onward, I’ll make you my slave!”
Wu Jie was the son of the Sect Leader of True Martial Sect. He had just entered his thirties, and his cultivation base was at the peak of the Void.
However, he was like an ant in front of Feng Tian Wu.
“Young Master!” The sound of sword whistling in the air disappeared as soon as it appeared. It was accompanied by a loud scream. As it turned out, Feng Tian Wu had casually drawn her sword and took the life of Wu Jie who was venting his anger on her.
The owner of the loud scream was none other than the old man standing behind Wu Jie. He did not expect the harmless looking red-clad woman could kill Young Master without him noticing.
His Young Master was dead.
How was he going to explain this to the Sect Leader?
Silence descended on the surroundings.
The gazes that landed on Wu Jie who was lying in a pool of blood were a little stunned.
“S-She killed the youngest son of the Sect Leader of True Martial Sect?”
“She just invited a huge calamity! The True Martial Sect will never let her go!”
“I can’t believe she possessed the strength to kill the youngest son of the Sect Leader of True Martial Sect even though she only appears to be in her twenties… Although there was no Heaven and Earth Energy that gathered into the Heaven and Earth Phenomenon when they attacked earlier, I heard the youngest son of the Sect Leader of True Martial Sect was at the peak of the Void already.”
“He was killed in just a blow… She must be a Martial Monarch then.”
The onlookers discussed among themselves as they stared at this woman who possessed unrivaled beauty in astonishment.
Well, it was just like the saying, ‘Women are troubles.’
If it was not for the fact that the son of the Sect Leader of True Martial Sect harbored evil intention toward this woman, he would not have ended up like that.
However, what they did not know was the son of the Sect Leader of True Martial Sect had been sentenced to death by the purple-clad young man standing next to the woman when he killed the woman standing outside the pergola.
“Y-You… How dare you kill my Young Master! Do you know who he is?” The old man was so infuriated that his body began to tremble when he saw Wu Jie lying on the ground. He glared at Feng Tian Wu intently. It seemed as though he had not recovered from his shock yet.
“What does it have to do with me whoever he is?” Feng Tian Wu lifted her head and looked at the old man indifferently. Her question almost made the old man throw up blood.
This woman first killed his Young Master, and then, she actually had the audacity ask what did it have to do with her who his Young Master was?
“You’re looking for death!” The old man could no longer hold back. With a loud roar, Origin Energy rose from his body and transformed into a thunderstorm in just a blink of an eye before it twined around his body. It made him look like a Thunder God.
Apart from that, there were also revolving wind energy and dancing flames around the thunderstorm.
With a flash, the old man charged out. A series of explosions sounded in his wake as he charged out. Invisible airwave rolled out and turned into a flurry of hurricanes that swept through the place.
In the next instant, a sword suddenly appeared in the old man’s hands. The sword sliced toward Feng Tian Wu powerfully as though it had divine help.
The strength that the old man demonstrated was not only more powerful than Wu Jie, it far surpassed Feng Tian Wu too!
However, Feng Tian Wu’s expression remained calm in the face of the old man’s hurricane-like attack. It seemed as though she had no intention of moving at all.
“Has she gone crazy?”
“It looks like she’s wishing for death now!”
Many people thought to themselves as they watched the scene unfolding before their eyes.
Just when everybody thought Feng Tian Wu was about to die, a scene far beyond their imagination suddenly unfolded. Their eyes instantly became as wide as saucers.
What did they just witness?!
The purple-clad young man who was sitting motionlessly next to the red-clad woman suddenly made his move like a thunder when the old man’s sword that contained the strength of two ancient black dragons and several thousand ancient horned dragons was slicing down at the red-clad woman.
With just one finger, he blocked the sword that the old man wielded with all his might.
The finger and the sword met. They were momentarily locked in a stalemate.
Rolling airwaves began to spread out from the meeting point of the finger and the sword before it transformed into a flurry of hurricanes that made the onlookers’ robes flutter.
Some people with a lower cultivation base had to squint their eyes. However, their eyes did not leave the purple-clad young man standing nearby. His strength shocked all of them.
Crack! Crack! Crack!
Right at this moment, the old man’s face flushed as his body trembled ever so slightly. A series of fine cracks began to appear from the place where he stood.
The cracks continued to spread out, appearing like a giant spider web.
“Hurmph!” In comparison to the old man’s lack of energy to carry on, Duan Ling Tian appeared calm and collected. However, he soon snorted as the finger blocking at the tip of the old man’s sword gave a little flick.
A vast energy surged out of Duan Ling Tian’s finger and entered the Spirit Sword in the old man’s hand easily like crushing dried leaves before it entered old man’s body as well.
In just a blink of an eye, the tyrannical energy destroyed the old man’s internal organs, killing him imperceptibly. The old man collapsed to the ground, his eyes turned lifeless when he stopped breathing.
The entire scene fell silent.
“True Martial Sect?” Duan Ling Tian swept a cold glance at the two bodies. A hint of disdain could be seen on the corner of his mouth.
According to Luo Ping, the True Martial Sect was originally one of Yin Yang Sect’s mortal enemies.
“Tian Wu, let’s go there.” Duan Ling Tian took the Spatial Rings, Profundity, and Concept Fragments from the two bodies before he led Feng Tian Wu to an unoccupied pergola to sit.
Meanwhile, everyone’s eyes followed them when they moved.
“Who is this purple-clad young man? He’s really strong!”
“Judging by the Heaven and Earth Phenomenon he mobilized, that old man from the True Martial Sect should be at the Fifth or Sixth Level Martial Monarch Stage at least. However, he was killed with just a finger!”
“He’s just too powerful! I guess he must be a powerful demon!”
“It’s quite unlikely for a human martial artist to be so powerful at such a young age!”
A group of people whispered among themselves. The eyes that were looking at Duan Ling Tian were filled with dread.
Duan Ling Tian and Feng Tian Wu sat down in another pergola. Soon after, the Zhou Clan’s Auction Square’s staff came to clean the previous pergola they were sitting in.
While they were cleaning, it was apparent that they were slightly trembling.
After all, the body they were cleaning up belonged to the dearest youngest son of the Sect Leader of True Martial Sect!
At the backstage of the Zhou Clan’s Auction Square.
“Manager, the two of them are real troublemakers… Before this, they’ve already killed Zhou Li, and now they even killed the dearest youngest son of the Sect Leader of True Martial Sect and the elder of True Martial Sect!” One of the Zhou Clan’s disciples reported as he looked at Zhou Ji. There was a wry smile on his face.
“Looks like our Zhou Clan’s Auction Square is destined to be stormy today,” Zhou Ji sighed.
Soon after, somebody entered and reported, “Manager, I’ve done as you said. I’ve already asked someone to send the two bodies to the True Martial Sect’s industrial property in Ataraxia City.”
“Manager, it’s going to begin soon,” someone reminded at this moment.
“Follow the orders. It must be chaotic outside right now. Let me go out and calm them down,” Zhou Ji ordered before he walked out of the backstage to the auction stage.
Standing on the auction stage, he could clearly see the pergolas in front of his eyes and the customers sitting inside them.
These customers were all here to participate in the large-scale auction fair at the Zhou Clan’s Auction Square today.
“Everyone! I’d like to announce that the large-scale auction fair that’s held every three months by the Zhou Clan’s Auction Square has now begun!” Zhou Ji announced in a lively manner.
