Translator: EndlessFantasy Translation Editor: EndlessFantasy Translation
“True Martial Sect’s Sect Leader?” After hearing Wu Lie’s words, Duan Ling Tian nodded in comprehension. “So you’re the father of that two idiots.”
When Duan Ling Tian’s words came out, most people present took on a strange expression.
Many people looked at Wu Lie at once.
What’s the father of two idiots?
“You… You… Duan Ling Tian, don’t push it!” Wu Lie almost attacked Duan Ling Tian in anger. In that crucial moment, he remembered Duan Ling Tian’s strength surpassed him, so he must suck it up and be patient.
Anyway, the people against Duan Ling Tian and Ling Tian Sect today was not only him.
“Don’t push it?” Duan Ling Tian looked at Wu Lie mockingly. “I’m pushing it, what can you do? Would you dare attack me?”
Previously, he discovered that Wu Lie was just an Eighth Level Martial Monarch stage martial artist. That’s why he had disregarded Wu Lie from the beginning.
If Wu Lie dared to attack him, he was confident he could kill him with one shot.
“Provocation is useless against me.” Wu Lie snorted but his eyes still seemed to be able to spurt fire.
It showed how angry he was in his heart.
“Trash!” Duan Ling Tian ignored Wu Lie after coolly glancing at him and made him so angry that his eyes were cracking. Then, Duan Ling Tian’s swift and piercing gaze swept across the remaining eleven people.
“Who killed Ling Tian Sect’s patrolling disciples earlier?” Duan Ling Tian asked he sounded extremely calm. However, if one paid attention, they would be able to hear extreme anger and coldness in his tone.
“I did it!” At that time, the grey-clad old man beside Wu Lie stepped forward as he coolly glanced at Duan Ling Tian. In his words, he did not seem to consider it a serious matter.
At once, the group of Ling Tian Sect Elders and disciples was staring furiously at the grey-clad old man.
“Sect Leader Lin, why would you do that?” One old man behind Zhang San said with a sigh.
That old man was a grade one weapon craftsman of the first-rate force which was controlled by the grey-clad old man.
He left his former first-rate force for Ling Tian Sect because he wanted guidance from the weapon craftsman who could refine grade one spirit weapon which could amplify 90% one’s strength.
He too, left in good terms, but he never imagined that the Sect Leader of the sect he was formerly at would cause a scene at Ling Tian Sect.
“You killed them alone?” the grey-clad old man successfully caught Duan Ling Tian’s attention as he squinted his eyes and asked him in a deep voice.
“That’s right!” The grey-clad old man proudly said, he did not seem to notice the danger was approaching him.
“Very well, dare to take responsibility for your own doing… If that’s the case, go to hell.” Duan Ling Tian, who was nodding seriously, vanished into thin air as he spoke. When he reappeared, he was already in front of the grey-clad old man.
In that split second, a short-lived sword cry sounded in all of the Martial Monarch powerhouses’ ears whereas the Ling Tian Sect disciples below the Martial Monarch stage did not hear anything.
Even though they did not hear anything, they clearly saw that the grey-clad old man instantly fell to the ground as their Ling Tian Sect’s Sect Leader, Duan Ling Tian arrived in front of him.
When he fell, his eyes were wide opened with disbelief as if he had encountered something unbelievable.
Perhaps, he never thought that he could be killed so easily by Duan Ling Tian until the moment before his death.
As the grey-clad old man fell, there was a sword mark on his throat. A clear but subtle sword mark which was also his fatal wound.
One strike to seal his throat!
At that moment, the group of Ling Tian Sect disciples was shocked. In fact, even the True Martial Sect’s Sect Leader, Wu Lie, the leaders of the other four largest forces as well as the people they brought were dumbstruck.
Until a loud bang sounded only did they finally recovered.
It was Duan Ling Tian who grounded the grey-clad old man’s body into dust with a palm. The only thing left was a Spatial Ring and several pieces of Profundity Fragments of which he kept.
“Sect Leader!” The old man who was following behind the grey-clad old man cried and lunged at Duan Ling Tian like a wild beast with his Origin Energy rolling off his and Profundity following like a shadow.
He wanted to avenge the grey-clad old man.
When attacked Duan Ling Tian with his grade one spirit weapon, he was determined to mince Duan Ling Tian into tens of thousands of pieces.
Weng! Weng! Weng! Weng! Weng!
The blade gleam swept across the sky headed for Duan Ling Tian overwhelmingly as if it wanted to shred Duan Ling Tian in ten thousand pieces.
“Die!” The old man yelled. Wherever he passed, air explosion sounds sounded continuously and set off gusts of raging wind that make the robes of everyone present fluttered.
At the same time, Heaven and Earth Phenomenon took form at the void above the old man.
Four ancient black dragons’ silhouette and one thousand ancient horned dragons’ silhouette charged against Duan Ling Tian with sharp claws and bared fangs as if intending to shred Duan Ling Tian.
“Die!” The old man shouted. Air explosion sounds sounded wherever he passed and caused gusts of raging winds which made everyone’s robe fluttered.
“You must have the ability to kill me first.” Duan Ling Tian sneered and faced it without avoiding. He has no fear of the storm-like attacks exerted by the old man.
Nine Dragon’s Barrier!
With a thought, the Quasi Royal Grade Spirit Sword in Duan Ling Tian’s hand was wrapped in a five-colored force. It created a swift and piecing sword qi which weaved around his body wantonly like a five-colored divine dragon.
The five-colored divine dragon was extremely fast, it formed a five-colored light shield on the surface of his skin in the blink of an eye.
Boom! Boom! Boom! Boom! Boom!
Overwhelming blade gleam hit the surface of the five-colored light shield of Duan Ling Tian and caused a burst of loud sounds. The exploded air flow set off gusts of raging wind once again.
However, it failed to break through the five-colored light shield on the surface of Duan Ling Tian’s skin.
Dragon Soaring The Nine Heavens!
Moments later, Duan Ling Tian braced blade gleam which was falling like rain and moved forward like a five-colored divine dragon with exuded swift and piercing sword qi. He arrived in front of the old man in the blink of an eye.
In the next moment, Duan Ling Tian raised his hand with the Quasi Royal Grade Spirit Sword in his hand.
When the five-colored light shield around Duan Ling Tian’s body disappeared, a short-lived sword cry was once again heard by all the Martial Monarch powerhouse who were present.
Immediately afterward, the old man followed the footsteps of his Sect Leader under everyone’s watchful eyes.
Similarly, Duan Ling Tian grounded the old man into dust and kept his Spatial Ring and Profundity Fragments.
The eyes of all leaders of the five largest forces including True Martial Sect’s Sect Leader, Wu Lie, were locked onto the Heaven and Earth Phenomenon forming in the void above Duan Ling Tian. They wanted to know Duan Ling Tian’s strength.
That was the reason why they just stood by the side and watched earlier.
As the saying goes, you would only be ever-victorious if you know the enemy and know yourself!
They needed to delve in deeper to understand this Ling Tian Sect’s Sect Leader, Duan Ling Tian who emerged out of nowhere and raised like a comet.
Unfortunately, they were destined to be disappointed.
The Heaven and Earth Phenomenon in the void above Duan Ling Tian dissipated before it was formed.
Now, one of the force from the original six largest first-rated forces was gone, there were only the people from the five largest first-rate forces left including the True Martial Sect.
“Sect Leader’s amazing!”
“Yes, he’s so strong! Even the leader of a first-rate was instantly killed the Sect Leader in the blink of an eye, the other strong powerhouse from that sect who was of a lofty status wasn’t spared too.”
“What’s the fuss! The Sect Leader managed to get rid of Zhou Clan’s Grand Elder who was at the Ninth Level Martial Monarch stage, it was naturally nothing for him to be able to kill to poor old men.”
“That two poor old men probably weren’t even as strong as Zhou Clan’s Grand Elder who was killed by Sect Leader.”
A group of Ling Tian Sect’s disciples was discussing among themselves, without exception, their gaze was filled with enthusiastic admiration.
Some of the female disciples even stared at Duan Ling Tian longing, they regarded Duan Ling Tian as their dream lover.
However, dignified expression was apparent on Zhang San’s face along with the faces of grade one weapon craftsman and grade one alchemist behind him as well as all three of Ling Tian Sect Vice Sect Leader.
They could see that the rest of the party did not seem to care that two of their own died.
Obviously, the persons who died wasn’t the strongest among them.
Otherwise, they would not stay as calm.
They knew the real crisis of Ling Tian Sect has just begun.
“Not bad, not bad.” Thousand Feet Sect’s Sect Leader, that old man in black robe sized up Duan Ling Tian and nodded. It looked like an elder praising the younger generation.
In the blink of an eye, he changed his expression and smirked.”However, no matter how good your strength was, you’re going to die here today!”
“Let’s attack together… After all, this chap could kill a Ninth Level Martial Monarch stage martial artist like us, we shan’t be careless.”
The old man in a black robe’s eye was locked onto Duan Ling Tian as he said to three other persons.
The three other person he spoke to was leaders of three other first-rate forces apart from the True Martial Sect’s Sect Leader, Wu Lie. The three of them had the same cultivation base as him, they were all Ninth Level Martial Monarch stage powerhouses.
“Zhou Clan’s Grand Elder was a martial artist who had just broke through to the Ninth Level Martial Monarch stage… Even I could kill him with one move!” Among the leaders of the three first-rate forces, a middle-aged man in silver robe said in disdain.
However, although he said that, he still stared at Duan Ling Tian cooperatively with a cold gaze. He was ready to attack at any time.
As for the remaining two people, they also fixated their gaze on Duan Ling Tian at the first instant.
They were on the verge of a war!
“Let’s help the Sect Leader!” The group of people behind Duan Ling Tian were agitated, all of them wanted to help Duan Ling Tian.
However, they returned to silence when Duan Ling Tian lifted his hand. He knew the Sect Leader wanted them to stand by the side.
“Sect Leader! You…” The group of people including Zhang San intended to persuade Duan Ling Tian but was interrupted by Duan Ling Tian in a deep voice, “This is an order!”
For a time, the group of people who did not dare to violate Duan Ling Tian’s orders looked at Duan Ling Tian’s back with a concerned expression as their hearts were filled with worry.
As Duan Ling Tian confronted the four Ninth Level Martial Monarch stage powerhouses, the Ling Tian Sect disciples who had formed the encirclement also began to gather behind Duan Ling Tian.
