Translator: EndlessFantasy Translation Editor: EndlessFantasy Translation
“Clan Leader, I’ve told you that you can’t stop me.” After taking a glance at Zhou Zheng, the Zhou Clan grand elder then looked at the people below his feet and yelled in his deep voice, “Cowardly rat, you dare to act, but don’t have the guts to bear the responsibility?!”
“The old fella’s so hot-tempered!” Duan Ling Tian ascended into the sky as the people watched in shock and he soon arrived before the Zhou Clan grand elder. He faced him fearlessly.
“It’s you… who killed my son?” The grand elder asked.
“If your son’s named Zhou Li, then I guess so,” Duan Ling Tian responded casually.
“He killed the Zhou Clan grand elder’s son?”
At that time, the people at the Zhou Clan’s auction fair snapped back to their senses.
Never had they thought that the purple-clad young man would have killed the Zhou Clan grand elder’s only son.
They thought about it, and it soon made sense to them.
Duan Ling Tian was probably the only person who had the guts to kill the grand elder’s son. No one dared to do that at all.
“Good, very good… You killed my son. You’ll burn in hell today!” As the Zhou Clan grand elder roared furiously, his robe fluttered without the presence of the wind. He looked like as if he had turned into a raging King Kong with his muscular body.
“Old fella, why don’t you ask why I killed your son?” Duan Ling Tian looked at the grand elder calmly and asked.
“No matter what, you shouldn’t have killed my son!” There was a cold will to kill in the Zhou Clan grand elder’s voice like he would devour anyone who went near him.
“It seems like you already know.” Duan Ling Tian looked deeply into the grand elder’s eyes as he noticed something.
“So, what if I know? Although my son took your two items, even if he were to take your life, you shouldn’t have killed him either! There’s only one consequence since you killed him, which is to suffer a fate of death!”
“So, I can’t kill him even if he took my life?” Duan Ling Tian was stunned at first, and subsequently, he could not help but guffaw out loud as if he had just heard the funniest joke in the world. “You’re worthy of the Zhou Clan grand elder’s position. What a tyrant!” As he wiped off his tears from the laughter, a cold and terrifying gleam began to sparkle in Duan Ling Tian’s eyes. His purple robe flapped without any wind like a ball of purple flame burning.
Zhou Zheng watched whatever that was happening before his eyes from a distance. He knew there was nothing that he could do about it. The only thing that he could do was to watch silently.
No matter what the consequences would be, the result of the fight before his eyes had nothing to do with their Zhou Clan.
If the purple-clad young man died, the Zhou Clan grand elder would leave the clan and become a fugitive. He would have to run away from the hunt by the powerhouses from the sect that the purple-clad young man came from.
“A sect that’s able to bring out such a grade one Spirit Sword and grade one Life Recovery Pill… It’s powerful enough for them to end our Zhou Clan.” It was a no-brainer for Zhou Zheng to figure that out.
If it were not a powerful sect, how else would it get a grade one weapons craftsman who could refine a grade one Spirit Weapon that gives a 90% power boost and at the same time, a grade one Alchemist who refined a grade one medicinal pill with 91% Purity to join them?
If the result were the complete opposite, the purple-clad young man would have killed their grand elder.
To the Zhou Clan, the end result was the same.
No matter what it was, their Zhou Clan would lose their grand elder who had just broken through to Ninth Level Martial Monarch Stage.
“So what if I’m tyrannical?” The grand elder grinned. He spoke in a tone as if Duan Ling Tian was nothing to him. “Don’t worry. I won’t kill you right away… I’ll torture you slowly so that you’d rather die than being alive. Then, I’ll let you die slowly.”
“That’s the only way that I can release the grudge in me!” There was pleasure in the Zhou Clan grand elder’s tone as he spoke. It was as if he had already tortured Duan Ling Tian to death at that moment.
“That depends if you can do what you said,” Duan Ling Tian squinted and said calmly like as though what the Zhou Clan grand elder said did not bother him.
“You’ll find out very soon!” The grand elder shouted while Origin Energy rumbled in his body like an earthshaking, milky flame. A couple of Profundities followed him like shadows, and in the next second, he seemed as if he had turned into a cannon shooting ferociously at Duan Ling Tian.
As the Zhou Clan grand elder flung his entire body at Duan Ling Tian, a Spirit Sword appeared in his hand.
He inserted all of his energy into the Spirit Sword as he swung it and the sword shuddered intensely while a crisp, ear-piercing sword whistling could be heard.
Whoosh! Whoosh! Whoosh! Whoosh! Whoosh!
At the same time, tens of thousands of sword rays that seemed unreal shot out in front of the Zhou Clan grand elder like rain. They were dashing towards Duan Ling Tian without any mercy.
Duan Ling Tian would definitely die from being pierced by the 10,000 sword rays as soon as he was hit.
The speed of the sword rays lashing out was even faster than the Zhou Clan grand elder himself.
“The 10,000 Ray Sword Technique!”
As the Clan Leader himself, Zhou Zheng recognized the sword technique that their grand elder was performing at first glance. It was a Heaven Rank Advanced Sword Skill which was cultivated to its peak.
Only the Peak Level 10,000 Ray Sword Technique could release 10,000 sword rays when it was performed.
Dragon Soaring The Nine Heavens!
Facing the Zhou Clan grand elder’s attack which seemed like a thunderstorm, Duan Ling Tian did not fight back forcefully. Instead, he moved away like he had transformed into a Divine Dragon and dodged the grand elder’s attack that was coming at him.
Whoosh! Whoosh! Whoosh! Whoosh! Whoosh!
However, it was naturally not easy to dodge the Peak Level Heaven Rank Advanced 10,000 Ray Sword Technique. As Duan Ling Tian performed a martial art movement to dodge the attack, the 10,000 sword rays took a swift turn and chased after him.
At that moment, the Zhou Clan grand elder caught up to him. The Heaven and Earth Energy above his head formed into a Heaven and Earth Phenomenon.
There were four ancient black dragons’ silhouettes and over 3,000 ancient horned dragons’ silhouettes.
A Ninth Level Martial Monarch Stage’s full Origin Energy was similar to the strength of one ancient black dragon’s and 2,000 ancient horned dragons!
A grade one Spirit Weapon with an 87% power boost gave the additional power of an ancient black dragon and a couple of hundred ancient horned dragons!
Apart from that, the remaining few Monarch Stage Profundities would add up to the strength of two ancient black dragons and 1,000 ancient horned dragons!
Therefore, the Zhou Clan grand elder’s full force was similar to the energy of four ancient black dragons and over 3,000 ancient horned dragons!
“That’s pretty fast.” Duan Ling Tian, who performed the Heaven Rank Advanced Defensive Martial Skill: Dragon Soaring The Nine Heavens and dodged like a Divine Dragon, soon noticed the 10,000 sword rays that were trailing after him.
Without knowing when, a grin spread at the edge of his lips as he watched the Heaven and Earth Phenomenon form above the Zhou Clan grand elder’s head.
Duan Ling Tian stood where he was as the people watched. He allowed the sword rays from the sword technique that the Zhou Clan grand elder performed to cover him.
“What is he doing?”
“Perhaps he figured that he couldn’t run away, so he decided to let it take his life.”
“No! If he’s dead, how are we supposed to find out how the sword and the pill came about?”
Many of their faces flashed with concern as they looked at Duan Ling Tian at the Zhou Clan’s auction fair.
Naturally, they were not concerned about Duan Ling Tian’s life but instead, they were worried that there would be no way for them to find out about the sword and the pill that had been sold to the Zhou Clan earlier if he was killed.
At that very moment, Feng Tian Wu, who was initially sitting in the pavilion, had walked out and looked into the sky. She fixed her eyes on the purple silhouette which was idle.
Concern showed between her eyebrows.
“Hmm?” At that moment, even the Clan Leader of Zhou Clan, Zhou Zheng, and the auction fair manager, Zhou Ji, were frowning as they looked doubtfully at Duan Ling Tian.
They had no idea what Duan Ling Tian was thinking about.
It was almost impossible for him to fight back impactfully since he just stood there as the 10,000 sword rays advanced closer to him.
Their pupils shrunk very soon.
One after another, the rest of their pupils shrunk.
What did they just see?!
They saw the purple-clad young man standing there with a sword that appeared at the side of his body.
As soon as the sword appeared, it vanished without a trace.
At the same time, everyone clearly saw a layer of light shield rise around the purple-clad young man’s body that appeared out of thin air. They could hear gusts of rapid sword whistling.
It was evident that the light shield was a sword web made of the rapid sword rays.
Whoosh! Whoosh! Whoosh! Whoosh! Whoosh!
Eventually, the 10,000 sword rays got to Duan Ling Tian like rain. They pelted on the layer of light shield that rose around his body.
Bang! Bang! Bang! Bang! Bang!
Loud thuds echoed as the 10,000 sword rays rained down. They drove blasts of airwaves which turned into a strong wind, but it did not manage to break the light shield on Duan Ling Tian’s body after all.
“How is this possible?!” The Zhou Clan grand elder’s jaw dropped, and he had an expression of disbelief as he watched what was happening before his eyes.
Never had he thought that the murderer who killed his son could defend his attack like a piece of cake, given the fact that Duan Ling Tian had encountered the No. 1 powerhouse of the Zhou Clan who had just broken through to Ninth Level Martial Monarch Stage from his closed-door cultivation.
“He’s performing a defensive martial skill, isn’t he?”
“That’s right. Moreover, it’s a defensive martial skill combining the Spirit Sword. It’s brilliant.”
Many people were discussing among themselves at the Zhou Clan’s auction fair. They were gawking at the purple-clad young man who was covered in a translucent, five-colored light shield with respect.
Although they knew that the purple-clad young man was powerful, they did not expect him to be this dominant.
Not only was he fearless when he faced the Ninth Level Martial Monarch powerhouse who was coming at him with the full force of four ancient black dragons and 3,000 ancient horned dragons, but he also defended himself against the powerhouse’s full force attack with defensive martial skill.
Furthermore, he had resisted the powerhouse’s attack entirely.
At that moment, the Heaven and Earth Energy above Duan Ling Tian’s head were forming into a Heaven and Earth Phenomenon.
Just as everyone was looking over, the light shield around Duan Ling Tian’s body faded. He was left with a sword in his hand while the Heaven and Earth Phenomenon faded away before it even managed to form.
Many of them were disappointed to see that go away.
“Did you say that… you’d torture me slowly?” Duan Ling Tian looked at the Zhou Clan grand elder who stood not far away in disbelief and asked calmly.
