Chapter 1191: Fruitful Harvest
Translator: EndlessFantasy Translation Editor: EndlessFantasy Translation
“You four idiots, thanks for the gifts.” When he turned around and faced the attacks of the leaders of the four largest forces head-on, and most of the people thought that he would definitely be a dead man, Duan Ling Tian spoke. His voice was indifferent and did not contain any emotions.
“Gifts?” The leaders were stunned. Before they even reacted, they then saw nine sword qi shoot out of the purple figure who faced their assault boldly.
They knew in their hearts that those were the nine spirit swords which were hovering around the Sect Leader of the Ling Tian Sect, Duan Ling Tian.
However, they did not care.
“Ha, that’s futile effort!” Not only did they not care, they even looked down upon the attack Duan Ling Tian launched from the bottom of their hearts.
From the speed of the nine sword qi, they could roughly estimate the strength it contained.
The nine sword qi might be able to stop any one of their attacks, but it was impossible for it to stop all four of their attacks simultaneously.
Duan Ling Tian immediately exerted the Nine-Tribulation Sword Control Technique.
The Nine-Tribulation Sword Control Technique had a unique characteristic whereby it needed some buffering time for the speed of the swords to be increased to its ultimate when it was controlled by spiritual energy.
That was the reason why the leaders of the four largest forces looked down upon the Nine-Tribulation Sword Control Technique that he used.
Swish! Swish! Swish!
Nine sword qi soared across the sky and strengthened moments later. It was like nine copies of Duan Ling Tian striking altogether. The strength was instantly increased to its maximum as if the gods had aided him.
“How’s that possible?!” At that time, the faces of the leaders of the four largest forces changed.
The nine sword qi suddenly quickened, and the acceleration rate jolted them. At once, they realized that the four of them could hardly block it.
They never thought that the speed of the sword qi would increase and so dramatically too. It was completely beyond their imaginations!
“Damnit! How could this Duan Ling Tian be so powerful?”
“Didn’t Wu Lie say that Duan Ling Tian was only a little bit stronger than the Zhou Clan grand elder who had just broken through to the Ninth Level Martial Monarch stage?”
“Is this more than ‘a little bit stronger than the Zhou Clan grand elder’?”
“We’ve been cheated by Wu Lie!”
At that moment, the four of them also saw the Heaven and Earth Phenomenon which accompanied Duan Ling Tian. They could detect the strength of four ancient black dragons in addition to 9,000 ancient horned dragons.
Just imagine that: the strength of four ancient black dragons in addition to 9,000 ancient horned dragons!
Even their strongest quad member was weaker than Duan Ling Tian.
Besides that, they were panic-stricken about the ingenious sword skills he currently exhibited. It was as if the gods aided him and they did not think that they would be able to block it.
Simultaneously, the same thought appeared in their minds.
However, they did not slow down their hand movements. The violent, stormy attacks headed straight for the nine rapidly-moving sword qi as if they had no fear.
Naturally, it did not mean that they were not afraid of Duan Ling Tian. They just knew that it would inevitably backfire if they forcefully pulled back.
That was not what they wanted to see, so they could only bite the bullet.
They made a decision in tacit agreement. When their own attacks collided with Duan Ling Tian’s, they had to immediately escape by drawing support from the recoil force even if it would hurt them.
Although they might not be able to escape, they simply had to do so.
If they did not run, they would be dead for sure!
If they did, they might have a chance of surviving.
Boom! Boom! Boom! Boom! Boom!
Shortly after, there was a burst of loud noises when the nine Quasi Royal Grade Spirit Sword controlled by Duan Ling Tian through the Nine-Tribulation Sword Control Technique collided with the attacks from the leaders of the four largest forces.
The storm-like attacks were instantly crushed and shattered as they collided with the nine sword qi transformed by the Quasi Royal Grade Spirit Sword.
All of the leaders were injured at the same time. They even spat out a mouthful of deep red blood, but they did not dare to stay any longer. They fled in all directions.
However, would they be able to escape?
As everyone including the True Martial Sect’s Sect Leader, Wu Lie, was shocked by the scene before them, the nine sword qi surged after crushing the four storm-like attacks.
In the next moment, everyone saw the nine five-colored sword qi instantly transform into almost one hundred five-colored Divine Dragons.
More accurately, there were 81 Divine Dragons.
Each sword qi was transformed into nine Divine Dragons.
Nine Dragon’s Radiant Flash!
Then, Duan Ling Tian’s eyes turned cold, and 162 extremely dazzling flashes instantly shot out from the eyes of 81 Divine Dragons.
The speed of these eye-blinding flashes was so fast that even the Seventh Level and Eighth Level Martial Monarch stage martial artists who were present found it hard to trace.
Swish! Swish! Swish! Swish! Swish!
Simultaneously, sharp and short whistles were heard by everyone present. The sounds only lasted for seconds.
After that, everyone suddenly noticed that the bodies of the four first-rate forces’ leaders who were escaping in different directions were frozen in mid-air.
Bloody arrows kept spurting out from their bodies and blood splattered across the sky as if flirtatious red roses were blooming one after another.
Without any exception, the bodies of the leaders of the four largest forces were left with dozens of bloody wounds, and they were very much dead.
At the same time, the purple figure standing proudly in the air in the distance vanished into thin air under everyone’s watchful eyes.
When he reappeared, he was back in front of the Ling Tian Sect members.
In his hands, there were five Spatial Rings and a pile of Profundity Fragments which he stored into his Spatial Ring shortly after.
At that moment, Duan Ling Tian’s words echoed in the minds of everyone who was present, “Four idiots, thanks for the gifts.”
Now, they realized the gifts that Duan Ling Tian meant were the Spatial Rings and Profundity Fragments left behind by the leaders of the four largest forces after they had died.
The scene was deadly silent.
Everyone’s gaze was on the same person. It was the person dressed in a purple robe who now seemed invincible in their eyes as if he was the undefeated God of War.
“No… Impossible… Impossible!” In the distance, the Sect Leader of the True Martial Sect, Wu Lie, was the first to recover from the shock. He shook his head as he looked at the purple-clad youth before him as if he was reluctant to believe that what he had just seen was true.
“Wu Lie, didn’t you say his strength was merely a bit stronger than the Zhou Clan grand elder’s?”
“Wu Lie! His strength was obviously way stronger than the Zhou Clan grand elder’s. Why did you say it was ‘merely a little stronger’? You caused the death of my Sect Leader of the Thousand Feet Sect!”
“Wu Lie, return the life of my Sect Leader!”
Simultaneously, apart from Wu Lie and the old man behind him, the four other people around him glared at him in anger. Their eyes were filled with icy coldness.
At once, Wu Lie turned green.
He had just heard that Duan Ling Tian could kill the Zhou Clan grand elder who had just broken through to the Ninth Level Martial Monarch stage.
He was not clear about Duan Ling Tian’s actual power.
However, according to his speculation in the past, Duan Ling Tian was not that strong. He should be merely a little stronger than the Zhou Clan grand elder.
The reason for that speculation was that if Duan Ling Tian were a lot stronger than the Zhou Clan grand elder, he would not have conceded to the Ling Tian Sect which was renamed from the Yin Yang Sect.
Now, he knew he had been outrageously wrong!
With Duan Ling Tian’s power, he could compete with the top powerhouses of the upper middle-level first-rate forces in the central area of the Inner Land.
Now, he could only curse in his heart, “You’re such a strong powerhouse. What were you doing dominating the outer ring of the Inner Land? Isn’t that bullying?”
From then on, Wu Lie gave up on the idea of avenging his two sons because he knew he could not do it. Being killed by the other party was as simple as slaughtering a chicken or cutting grass.
A loud bang resounded and an old man not far away from Wu Lie briskly attacked him. The furious attack headed straight for Wu Lie.
“Hmph!” As he snorted, the old man, who was following behind Wu Lie like a shadow, helped him block the attacks before he could even react.
“What are you doing?!” Wu Lie’s face changed dramatically as he stared angrily at the old man who attacked him.
“Since we’re dying today anyway… I want to kill you to comfort the Sect Leader’s soul before I die!” The old man shouted, then he attacked Wu Lie once again but it the old man behind Wu Lie defended him again. They were fighting each other, and they were evenly matched. It was a close fight.
“The reason our sect encountered such a crisis today is all Wu Lie’s fault… Let’s kill him!” Soon, the people from the three other first-rate forces also charged towards Wu Lie angrily.
In their opinion, if it were not for Wu Lie who had personally gone to their sect and persuaded them to come, they would not be there, and they would not have to face such a dire life and death situation.
They thought they would benefit greatly from the trip to the Ling Tian Sect. Who would have known that not only would they not benefit from it, but they might even lose their lives?
They got angrier the more they thought about it.
Eventually, they blamed all of this onto Wu Lie who had initiated it.
Boom! Boom! Boom! Boom! Boom!
A burst of explosions echoed in the air. The three powerhouses from the first-rate forces attacked Wu Lie at the same time. They did not show any mercy, and they grievously injured Wu Lie in a heartbeat.
Any one of them could match Wu Lie, so it was effortless to kill him if the three of them worked together.
In the blink of an eye, Wu Lie had his life snuffed out.
From the beginning to the end, Duan Ling Tian just stood aside and watched. From the mouth of the person before him, Duan Ling Tian learned that everything that had happened today was due to Wu Lie, the Sect Leader of the True Martial Sect.
It was Wu Lie who had gathered these powerhouses from the first-rate forces to come to the Ling Tian Sect to destroy it.
It was not hard to guess why.
Wu Lie knew he could not avenge his two sons by himself, so he had dragged the other first-rate forces down with him.
“Wu Lie was actually quite smart… He knew how to seize an opportunity,” Duan Ling Tian seemed to remember something and thought to himself secretly.
