Chapter 1199: Threatened
Translator: EndlessFantasy Translation Editor: EndlessFantasy Translation
With a thunderous explosion, Yang Chun disappeared before almost everyone’s eyes.
Naturally, he did not really disappear. His speed was just too fast that the others could not catch his body’s movement.
Although most of the people present could not catch Yang Chun’s movement, it did not mean Duan Ling Tian could not see him.
However, Duan Ling Tian did not react even when Yang Chun was charging at him with a great momentum. He stood in the same place as though he was waiting for Yang Chun’s attack.
Yang Chun sprang like a ferocious tiger. He lunged at Duan Ling Tian with bared fangs and sharp claws.
In his hand, a sword qi that was several feet long surged from the three-foot-long blade. It surged and aimed for Duan Ling Tian as if it wanted to split Duan Ling Tian into two.
Boom! Boom! Boom! Boom! Boom!
While Yang Chun moved, a burst of air explosion reverberated in the air as it also headed for Duan Ling Tian.
When Yang Chun lunged at Duan Ling Tian with his sword and the several feet-long sword qi, a huge figure stood in front of Duan Ling Tian when the attack almost landed on him.
A pair of huge fists punched outward like two cannonballs and collided fiercely with the incoming sword qi.
In just an instant, a tremendously loud explosion was heard. The airflow rippled everywhere from the place where the fists collided with the sword.
Many Ling Tian Sect’s disciples with lower cultivation base were injured by the loud explosion. They were bleeding from their eyes., nose, and ears. Some even spat out mouthfuls of blood.
At the same time, a raging wind spread outward and caused everyone’s robes to flutter.
Those who were not affected were staring intently at the scene before them.
The huge figure that arrived in a timely manner before Duan Ling Tian and protected him by blocking Yang Chun’s strike with its fists was the three-meters tall puppet.
When Chen Shao Shuai saw the puppet and Yang Chun were in a deadlock, he broke the silence as he yelled, “Hammer, well done!”
“Hammer? So he’s called Hammer.” That was when everyone present learned the name of Duan Ling Tian’s puppet.
Soon, their attention shifted to the void above Hammer and Yang Chun.
Two stirring Heaven and Earth Energy were forming the Heaven and Earth Phenomenon.
Five ancient black dragons’ silhouettes and 1,000 ancient horned dragons’ silhouettes appeared in the void above Hammer first before five ancient black dragons’ silhouettes and 5,000 ancient horned dragons’ silhouettes appeared in the void above Yang Chun.
When the Heaven and Earth Phenomenon in the void above Hammer and Yang Chun was formed, another loud explosion sounded. It was the sword qi from the grade one Spirit Sword in Yang Chun’s hands. It suddenly surged and pushed against both of Hammer’s fists.
Hammer was pushed back a few steps, and his body trembled violently because of it.
The strength difference of 4,000 ancient horned dragons completely overpowered Hammer.
Yang Chun did not exert his full force in the earlier strike. He merely used five ancient black dragons’ strength, and it was blocked by Hammer.
He was instantly angered.
It was extremely humiliating for him when his attack was blocked by a puppet.
He immediately cast a Fourth Level Monarch Stage Profundity that he did not use earlier, finally unleashing his full power that was equivalent to the strength of five ancient black dragons and 5,000 ancient horned dragons.
Due to that, the strength of the sword qi from the grade one Spirit Sword in his hands easily overpowered Hammer’s strength and pushed Hammer back.
“The strength of five ancient black dragons and 1,000 ancient horned dragons? Sect Leader’s puppet is really strong!”
“That’s why he’s able to instantly kill three people above the Seventh Level Martial Monarch Stage. His strength is comparable to a Ninth Level Martial Monarch Stage martial artist. In fact, he may be even stronger than most Ninth Level Martial Monarch Stage martial artists.”
“This Yang Chun can actually mobilize the strength of five ancient black dragons and 5,000 ancient horned dragons… Sect Leader’s puppet is not a match for him.”
“Several months ago, Sect Leader managed to kill the leaders of the four largest first-rate forces by himself… Back then, the strength Sect Leader displayed was equivalent to the strength of four ancient black dragons and 9,000 ancient horned dragons.”
“Only a few months have passed… Even if the Sect Leader improved, I afraid he would only improve by 1,000 or 2,000 ancient horned dragons’ strength.”
“Does that mean the Sect Leader’s strength is on par with his puppet at most?”
The group of Ling Tian Sect’s elders and disciples were whispering among themselves. As they spoke, their faces were panic-stricken as though a crisis had befallen them.
At this moment, most of them did not think their Sect Leader, Duan Ling Tian, was a match for Yang Chun who was a Martial Emperor’s disciple.
According to Yang Chun’s words, he was here to annihilate the Ling Tian Sect.
Once their Sect Leader, Duan Ling Tian, lost, the Ling Tian Sect would also be wiped out. They would also die in Yang Chun hands and be buried along with the rest of Ling Tian Sect.
When they thought of that, a hint of desperation was apparent on the Ling Tian Sect’s elders and disciples’ faces.
Many people wanted to leave.
Shortly after, when one of the Ling Tian Sect’s disciples was getting ready to leave quietly, many other Ling Tian Sect’s elders and disciples decided to leave too. They were acting as though they were avoiding the plague.
However, they were stopped by some others who were led by Luo Ping and Zhang San. “Surrender your Spatial Rings, and you may leave. You will no longer be Ling Tian Sect’s disciples.”
Luo Ping and Zhang San did not stop those Ling Tian Sect’s elders and disciples from leaving, but they had to return their Spatial Rings.
In their Spatial Rings, there were Origin Stones mined from the Ling Tian Sect’s estate, grade one Spirit Weapons and grade one pills crafted and refined by the Ling Tian Sect’s grade one weapons craftsmen and grade one alchemists.
These things were not permitted to leave with them.
For a time, many Ling Tian Sect’s elders and disciples hesitated.
“No matter what, nothing’s more important than my life… I don’t want the things in this Spatial Ring.” Shortly after, a Ling Tian Sect disciple took the lead in surrendering his Spatial Ring. He muttered to himself before he quickly left Ling Tian Peak and the Ling Tian Sect.
Many Ling Tian Sect’s elders and disciples followed suit once someone took the lead to leave.
It did not take long for a third of Ling Tian Sect’s people to leave. Chen Shao Shuai’s face turned purple as he said, “Everyone’s really flying off in different directions when disaster strikes!”
In the distant, Yang Chun stopped pursuing Hammer after he forced it to retreat. He did not stop the Ling Tian Sect’s elders and disciples from leaving even when he saw it.
Currently, all his attention was on the three-meters tall puppet before his eyes.
The puppet’s strength was actually equivalent to the strength of five ancient black dragons and 1,000 ancient horned dragons.
Although it was not as strong as he was, such strength was still shocking on a puppet.
‘If I can bring this puppet back as a gift for Senior Brother Zhou… Senior Brother Zhou will definitely be pleased.’ Yang Chun thought to himself, feeling moved.
Although he was a Martial Emperor’s disciple, just like what Duan Ling Tian said, his master in name, Martial Emperor Shi Qi, might not necessarily remember him.
Usually, a Martial Emperor’s disciple was put under the care of a Martial Emperor’s direct disciple.
The Martial Emperor’s direct disciple that he followed was the second disciple of Martial Emperor Shi Qi’s four direct disciples. He was an extremely strong powerhouse at the peak of the Martial Monarch Stage.
Rumor said that Zhou Yi’s strength was not any weaker than the strongest direct disciple of Martial Emperor Shi Qi.
The ranking of the four direct disciples was not based on strength but their sequence in joining the sect.
Zhou Yi was Martial Emperor Shi Qi’s second disciple. He was also the one that Martial Emperor Shi Qi favored.
Yang Chun had always been proud of following Zhou Yi.
Yang Chun became excited when he thought about how he had another chance to please Senior Brother Zhou. However, he quickly calmed himself down.
He knew it was almost impossible to ask the Sect Leader of Ling Tian Sect, Duan Ling Tian, to hand the puppet over to him.
Although he could not wait to kill Duan Ling Tian and avenge his brother, Yang Hong, he had to temporarily suppress his anger for that extremely rare puppet that could be used to please his Senior Brother Zhou.
“Duan Ling Tian, you’ll certainly die today for killing my brother, Yang Hong! However, do you really want so many people to die with you?” Yang Chun asked in his deep voice as he looked at Duan Ling Tian.
As he spoke, he glanced at the others. His eyes sparkled with violence. It incited fear in a lot of them. Those with weaker mental power even trembled from it.
Duan Ling Tian looked at Yang Chun calmly as though Yang Chun’s words did not affect him at all.
“Duan Ling Tian, I’ll give you one last chance… Hand over the control of the puppet! I’ll leave after I kill you and obtain the control of the puppet,” Yang Chun continued saying.
In his opinion, his target today was Duan Ling Tian. He only wanted to kill Duan Ling Tian. He did not care about the life or death of the others.
“Although your puppet is strong, you’ve seen it for yourself… It’s no match for me!” Yang Chun patiently reminded him.
Yang Chun’s words sparked some hope in a small number of Ling Tian Sect’s elders and disciples. They looked at Duan Ling Tian hopefully, hoping he would do as Yang Chun said.
If that was the case, they might be able to escape death this time.
However, the next sentence from Duan Ling Tian’s mouth caused their faces to change when they realized Duan Ling Tian would never agree to Yang Chun’s words.
“Are you done talking?” Duan Ling Tian asked calmly as he glanced at Yang Chun with cold eyes.
Are you done talking?
Yang Chun’s face darkened completely when he heard Duan Ling Tian’s casual remark. He threatened, “Duan Ling Tian, since you’re so stubborn, I kill those from Ling Tian Sect one by one. After all of them die, I’ll kill you too!”
“I hope you can still remain calm at that time!”
“You should know your puppet can’t stop me.”
