Translator: EndlessFantasy Translation Editor: EndlessFantasy Translation
“It’s Sect Leader!”
Upon hearing that voice, many Ling Tian Sect’s elders and disciples’ eyes brightened immediately. They began looking around for their Sect Leader of Ling Tian Sect.
Some people even looked at Yang Chun strangely.
‘So what if you’re a Martial Emperor’s disciple? Our Ling Tian Sect’s Sect Leader still called you an idiot anyway!’
Yang Chun had heard the voice that resonated everywhere but did not realize what was happening. However, he was instantly infuriated when he noticed the strange looks he was getting.
“You’re Duan Ling Tian?” His sharp gaze instantly landed on a purple-clad young man who had appeared without anyone knowing when. His gaze was vicious and filled with killing intent.
That purple-clad young man was none other than Duan Ling Tian.
Currently, Duan Ling Tian was standing next to Feng Tian Wu like her guardian angel.
At this moment, Gold Thug and Xiong Quan who were standing in front of Tian Wu had also retreated sensibly and went to stand behind Duan Ling Tian in a respectful manner. It was as though they were his shadow.
“Elder Yun.” It seemed like Duan Ling Tian did not hear Yang Chun’s query at all as his gaze landed on Yun Gang who was standing behind Yang Chun. “That day, the reason you left without bidding anyone goodbye is to find some backup so that you can stage a comeback?”
Yang Chun who was ignored by Duan Ling Tian turned even graver now. His eyes that were filled with murderous intent seemed as though it could shoot out fire now.
“Duan Ling Tian, Lord Yang Chun is talking to you! How dare you ignore him?! You’re doomed now!” Yun Gang had also noticed Yang Chun’s wrath so he could not help but smirk.
However, this time, Duan Ling Tian’s gaze swept toward the two men beside Yun Gang instead. It was the You Brothers.
After his gaze swept across two of them, a piercing gleam flashed across his eyes as though he was about to devour somebody.
He had never mistreated these two people before. However, today, the two of them had betrayed him and betrayed the Ling Tian Sect.
In the face of Yun Gang’s smirk, Duan Ling Tian replied at a speed that was neither hurried nor slow, “Well, I’m afraid you won’t find out whether I’m doomed or not.”
At this moment, horror suddenly dawned on Yang Chun’s face. With a flash, he disappeared from his spot as though he was trying to run away from something. He did not even have time to warn the three people next to him.
Almost as soon as Yang Chun disappeared from his spot, a loud ear-piercing explosion resonated thunderously.
Bang! Bang! Bang! Bang! Bang!
A series of earth-shattering explosion sound entered everyone’s ears. Many of those Ling Tian Sect’s disciples with lower cultivation base were so affected that they were bleeding from all seven orifices of the head.
At the same time, airwaves that were set off by the explosion transformed into flurries of tyrannical hurricane that swept over the entire area, forcing many of those Ling Tian Sect’s disciples with lower cultivation base to squint their eyes.
Under the watchful eyes of the others, Yun Gang and the You Brothers who were standing there safely just a moment ago suddenly exploded into three blood mist in just a blink of an eye after the loud explosion.
Blood mist splattered everywhere like a blooming flame. It was quite beautiful.
The entire scene fell silent.
Even Yang Chun who had dodged to the side had an extremely grave expression now. His gaze was staring fixedly at the place where the three blood mist had exploded. A gigantic figure had just made its appearance.
The three-meters-tall gigantic figure entered everyone’s sight and took them by surprise.
“I’m not dreaming right?”
For a moment, many people exchanged glances with each other as a thought that was more or less the same formed in their minds.
Many people even pinched their own thighs brutally. Only when they felt the extreme pain in their thighs that they were certain they were not dreaming.
Since when could a puppet possess such powerful strength?
Killing an Eighth Level Martial Monarch and two Seventh Level Martial Monarchs in just a blink of an eye.
Chills ran down their spines as they thought about it.
Naturally, this was not the only thing that baffled them. After that three-meters-tall gigantic puppet made its appearance, it actually lifted up a hand like a human and put the three Spatial Rings and more than ten Profundity Fragments contained in the blood mist away.
Then, under the bewildered eyes of the group of people, the puppet threw all of the Spatial Rings and Profundity Fragments out.
The direction that it threw them was toward the place where Duan Ling Tian was hovering.
Swish! Swish! Swish!
Three Spatial Rings and more than ten Profundity Fragments flew across the sky toward their target — Duan Ling Tian. When they were near him, he casually took them and stored them inside his own Spatial Ring.
Upon seeing this, everyone became speechless.
“I thought he was going to attack the Sect Leader with those Spatial Rings and Profundity Fragments! I didn’t think it was actually passing the Spatial Rings and Profundity Fragments to the Sect Leader!”
“Can somebody tell me what’s going on actually? Why would a mere puppet have such powerful strength? This is not logical at all!”
“I’ve never heard of such a powerful puppet on Cloud Continent before! And the most important thing is this puppet seems to be listening to Sect Leader’s orders too!”
“I thought a puppet can only be activated by the corresponding Inscription Formation. Once it’s activated, it would act on its own and wouldn’t acknowledge its owner? Why does it listen to the Sect Leader’s orders?”
“I heard that… several months ago, the Sect Leader bid on the Mysterious Silver at the auction fair organized by the Zhou Clan’s Auction Square in Ataraxia City!”
“Mysterious Silver? What’s that?”
“Mysterious Silver is a special material that would make a puppet listen to orders once it’s coordinated with the Inscription Formation and merged into the puppet’s body.”
“Ah, I see.”
As the group of Ling Tian Sect’s elders and disciples discussed with each other, they no longer found it weird that the puppet listened to their Sect Leader, Duan Ling Tian’s order.
However, apart from being shocked at how powerful the puppet was, they were baffled as well.
None of them had ever heard of such a powerful puppet before.
“This puppet is just too powerful! It’s so powerful that it gives people goosebumps!”
“I think those two Vice Sect Leaders You did not think they would end up like that even in their deaths!”
“I think they were already killed by the Sect Leader’s puppet before they even realized what was happening.”
Many people gasped when the You Brothers died.
Even Luo Ping was taken by surprise and broke out in cold sweat.
At this moment, she could not help but feel relieved she stood by Ling Tian Sect’s side. Otherwise, she would have ended up like the You Brothers. They died without even knowing what happened.
“H-Hammer is actually this monstrous?” Chen Shao Shuai was stunned for a long time before he finally returned to his senses. After he returned to his senses, a lingering fear still could be seen on his face.
At this moment, he finally realized when Hammer attacked him previously, it was only using 30% of his strength at the most. Otherwise, he would not have survived.
The strength that Hammer demonstrated when it killed the two Eighth Level Martial Monarchs and the Ninth Level Martial Monarch made him realized this.
“The Sect Leader actually has such a monster by his side.” Zhang San was staring with his mouth agape.
At this moment, apart from the others, even Gold Thug and Xiong Quan who were by Duan Ling Tian’s side could not help but feel bewildered as well. Both of them exchanged glances with each other and saw the astonishment in each other’s eyes.
“Xiong Quan, how did master make this puppet?” Gold Thug asked Xiong Quan using Voice Transmission.
“If you ask me, who should I ask? I only know that master has created a puppet recently, but it never crossed my mind that it was such a freaky puppet!” Xiong Quan replied agitatedly.
As he reached the end of his sentence, his face was filled with shock.
Although Feng Tian Wu’s face remained calm as usual, there was a hint of bafflement in the depth of that beautiful autumn eyes too.
It was apparent she was shocked by the strength of the puppet Duan Ling Tian had created.
“Give the authority of controlling the puppet to me, and I’ll consider letting them go when you die.” When everyone was still baffled over Duan Ling Tian’s puppet, a cold voice resonated in the air and entered everyone’s ears. Horror dawned on many of them.
For a moment, the owner of the voice became the center of attention.
That owner of the voice was none other than Yang Chun, the disciple of a Martial Emperor.
It was apparent his sentence was targeted at Duan Ling Tian.
“Duan Ling Tian, other than being the older blood brother of Yang Hong, the Peak Master of the former Yin Yang Sect’s Yang Peak, he was also some Martial Emperor’s disciple or something,” Chen Shao Shuai reminded Duan Ling Tian as he looked at him at this moment.
“A Martial Emperor’s disciple?” Upon hearing Chen Shao Shuai’s words, Duan Ling Tian raised his brows. After expressing his surprise with an “Oh!”, he began to re-examine the middle-aged man, Yang Chun, in front of him.
Duan Ling Tian’s surprise “Oh!” filled Yang Chun’s face with pride.
However, the pride quickly disappeared without a trace and was replaced by glumness in the next moment.
It was due to the next sentence that Duan Ling Tian uttered.
“As far as I know, Martial Emperors don’t usually know their disciples… These people always like to swagger around and swindle the public using the title ‘Martial Emperor’s disciple’, but actually, they’re merely the dogs of the Martial Emperor’s direct disciples.” One must admit that the words Duan Ling Tian uttered were sharp, and every word accurately sliced through the heart’s sore spot.
This could be seen from Yang Chun’s glum face.
“If I guessed correctly… You must not be a direct disciple of the Martial Emperor right?” Duan Ling Tian continued to say. It seemed like he did not plan to let Yang Chun go as he continued to ask.
If he was not the Martial Emperor’s direct disciple, then he must be just an ordinary Martial Emperor’s disciple.
According to Duan Ling Tian’s words, an ordinary Martial Emperor’s disciple was basically a dog that was ordered around by the Martial Emperor’s direct disciples as they pleased!
As someone whose memory had merged with the Rebirth Martial Emperor’s memory, Duan Ling Tian naturally knew the hierarchy among those who followed Martial Emperors on Cloud Continent. At the top was the direct disciples, followed by the ordinary disciples, and the lowly followers at the bottom.
“Duan Ling Tian!” Finally, Yang Chun could no longer suppress the wrath in his heart anymore. He bellowed, “Today, not only will I kill you, I’ll annihilate your entire Ling Tian Sect as well!”
At this moment, Yang Chun who was thoroughly enraged seemed like he was no longer interested in Hammer, the puppet that Duan Ling Tian controlled.
Right now, he just wanted to kill Duan Ling Tian. How dare this person mock and shame him after discovering his identity?
“What? Now that I’ve touched your sore spot, you’re infuriated?” The laughter on Duan Ling Tian’s face became even more pronounced as he continued to provoke Yang Chun further. It was as though he was fearless even though he knew Yang Chun was a Martial Emperor’s disciple.
Duan Ling Tian’s further provocation was like a blasting fuse that fully ignited Yang Chun’s flame of fury. His expression turned wretched as he bellowed in rage, “DIE!”
