Chapter 1200: Duan Ling Tian with Greatly Increased Strength
Translator: EndlessFantasy Translation Editor: EndlessFantasy Translation
The expression of those who were present changed after Yang Chun finished his sentence.
Yang Chun did not wait for Duan Ling Tian to respond. He moved as though he had transformed into a bolt of lightning. He disappeared before almost everyone’s eyes as he headed straight for his first target.
His first target was none other than Feng Tian Wu who was standing next to Duan Ling Tian.
Yang Chun’s speed was so fast that even Hammer, who was ordered by Duan Ling Tian to chase after Yang Chun, could not catch up. His cannon-like punch landed on an empty spot.
“First, I’ll kill your woman!” Soon, Yang Chun arrived near Feng Tian Wu, and the Origin Energy of the grade one Spirit Sword in his hand surged. Several Profundities trailed after it like shadows before transforming into a several feet-long sword qi that was headed straight for Feng Tian Wu.
Although most of the people present could not see Yang Chun’s movement clearly, the sword qi headed for Feng Tian Wu was clearly reflected in their eyes.
They also heard Yang Chun’s indifferent words.
They knew Yang Chun’s first target was the red-clad woman, Feng Tian Wu, standing next to the Sect Leader of Ling Tian Sect. Everyone had long suspected she was the Sect Leader’s wife.
In that split second, most of them felt as though their hearts had stopped.
That exquisitely beautiful woman was going to die here today?
Along with Yang Chun’s strike that had a great momentum, a swift and piercing wind blew at her face and through her beautiful hair, causing her hair to fly in the wind. She looked ethereal as though she was a fairy that had descended on the mortal world.
At this moment, Feng Tian Wu remained indifferent even though she was facing a life or death situation. It was as though she was unaware of the impending crisis.
Naturally, this did not mean she was unafraid of death.
Although she had lost her memories, she had found a new motivation to live. It was the man currently standing next to her.
It was entirely because of her unconditional trust in that man that she was able to remain so calm.
“Ms. Tian Wu!” Gold Thug and Xiong Quan’s faces changed dramatically. Like most of the Ling Tian Sect’s elders and disciples, they thought Duan Ling Tian’s strength was on par with the puppet, Hammer, at most. They did not think Duan Ling Tian was stronger than Yang Chun.
“Idiot!” A calm and nonchalant voice sounded at this moment when the several feet-long sword qi arrived before Feng Tian Wu in just a blink of an eye.
Following that, everyone heard a loud explosion. The loud explosion spread out, and the airwaves turned into a flurry of hurricanes that swept over the entire place.
The flurry of hurricanes caused most people to close their eyes.
When they finally opened their eyes, all of them saw an unforgettable sight.
What did they see?!
Without knowing when, a purple figure stood in front of Feng Tian Wu with a five-colored light shield around him. It seemed as though he was wrapped in within a translucent cocoon.
When Yang Chun’s fierce strike landed on the five-colored light shield, it merely trembled for a moment before calm was restored.
“How’s that possible?!” Yang Chun’s face changed dramatically as he stared at the purple-clad young man before him. His eyes were filled with shock and amazement.
One had to know that his earlier strike contained his full strength that was equivalent to the strength of five ancient black dragons and 5,000 ancient horned dragons.
That could be seen from the Heaven and Earth Phenomenon in the void above him.
However, his attack was blocked by his opponent’s defensive martial skill?
Yang Chun was completely stunned.
Yang Chun was not the only one. Everyone, apart from Duan Ling Tian and Feng Tian Wu, was also stunned.
The scene before their eyes was completely beyond their imagination.
In the beginning, they thought Yang Chun might have held back when they saw his attack being blocked by their Sect Leader of Ling Tian Sect, Duan Ling Tian’s defensive martial skill.
However, when they saw the Heaven and Earth Phenomenon at the void above Yang Chun, they realized that Yang Chun had unleashed his full strength in that attack.
“Sect Leader’s defensive martial skill can actually block Yang Chun’s strike that contained his full strength?”
“To block Yang Chun’s strike that contained his full strength with a defensive martial skill… How strong is Sect Leader right now?”
“Sect Leader’s progress is too great, isn’t it? Previously when he battled the leaders of the four largest first-rate forces, he only mobilized the strength of four ancient black dragons and 9,000 ancient horned dragons.”
“Perhaps the Sect Leader held back previously, he did not unleash his full strength.”
“That should be it. Four leaders of lower-middle level first-rate forces are not qualified for Sect Leader to use his full strength..”
The group of Ling Tian Sect’s elders and disciples recovered from the shock as their eyes brightened. Although they were glad they managed to escape death again, they were shocked by Duan Ling Tian’s astonishing strength.
At this moment, they felt like they did not know much about their Sect Leader, Duan Ling Tian.
Otherwise, they would not have lost faith in their Sect Leader.
“I don’t know how strong Sect Leader is right now.”
“The Heaven and Earth Phenomenon at the void above Sect Leader is almost formed.”
For a time, many Ling Tian Sect’s elders and disciples’ attention were caught by the stirring Heaven and Earth Energy at the void above Duan Ling Tian.
However, they were quickly disappointed because the Heaven and Earth Phenomenon dissipated before it was formed.
The five-colored light shield on Duan Ling Tian disappeared as an extraordinary three-foot-long blade stopped moving and fell steadily in his hands.
It was his Quasi Royal Grade Spirit Sword.
As for the five-colored light shield, it was formed by the defensive martial skill, the Nine Dragons’ Barrier.
Earlier, he easily blocked Yang Chun’s attack by using this Heaven Rank Advanced Defensive Martial Skill from the Nine Dragons War Sovereign Technique with his Quasi Royal Grade Spirit Sword.
Currently, his strength was way ahead of Yang Chun!
In the past few months, he had never once stopped comprehending the Sword Dao from the word ‘Sword’ left behind by the Sword Saint even though he had slacked off in his cultivation and comprehension of the Fused Profundity. Due to this reason, his Sword Profundity improved again.
The improvement this time even shocked Duan Ling Tian. He was so shocked that it took him half a day to recover from it.
Due to that reason, his strength had far surpassed the strength of five ancient black dragons and 5,000 ancient horned dragons… That was why he was not afraid of Yang Chun.
As someone who possessed the Rebirth Martial Emperor’s memory, he could naturally guess the strength of an ordinary disciple under a Martial Emperor.
In fact, he had overestimated Yang Chun.
“In my eyes, you’re no different from your brother, Yang Hong. You’re both idiots!” Duan Ling Tian said coldly as he stared at Yang Chun with a chilling gaze.
When he heard Duan Ling Tian calling him an idiot for the third time, Yang Chun’s body trembled as his face was filled with shame and anger. However, he suppressed it.
Although he did not know how strong Duan Ling Tian was, the scene earlier proved one thing. Duan Ling Tian was way stronger than him.
He could not figure out how a lower-level first-rate force’s leader was so strong, but he was certain the opponent was stronger than him.
With his strength, the other party could kill him in just a blink of an eye.
“Now what? Didn’t you say you’re going to kill everyone around me, one by one? Still holding back?” Duan Ling Tian glanced at Yang Chun in disdain before he charged at him. It made Yang Chun’s face turned green before it turned pale.
“Duan Ling Tian, don’t let it go to your head! There are a lot of people in this world who can deal with you.” Yang Chun sneered in frustration.
“Perhaps there are many people in this world who can deal with me… However, that doesn’t include you,” Duan Ling Tian mocked. As he spoke, his eyes glinted coldly as though waiting for a chance to swallow him up.
Meanwhile, a cold killing intent rose from his body.
That was the only thought in Yang Chun’s mind when he sensed the killing intent from Duan Ling Tian. He moved and vanished before most people’s eyes.
“Planning to escape?” Many people were shocked by Yang Chun’s sudden disappearance when a voice sounded. It was the voice of the Sect Leader of Ling Tian Sect, Duan Ling Tian.
Subsequently, they discovered that Duan Ling Tian had also disappeared.
Moments later, Duan Ling Tian appeared in the distance. After he appeared, another figure also appeared in front of him. It was Yang Chun.
“A Martial Emperor’s disciple is trying to escape from Sect Leader?” Many Ling Tian Sect’s elders and disciples had a funny look on their faces.
“Don’t forget Yang Chun’s merely an ordinary disciple under the Martial Emperor, the Martial Emperor might not even know him… According to Sect Leader’s words, a Martial Emperor’s disciple like him is just a dog of the Martial Emperor’s direct disciple,” someone else added.
“Do you think you’re capable of escaping from me?” Duan Ling Tian stared at Yang Chun with a sneer on the corner of his mouth.
“Duan Ling Tian, I admit that I’m not as good as you are… However, you should think it through. You’ll have to pay a huge price for killing me!” Yang Chun threatened with fear in his eyes after he took a deep breath.
“Pay a price?” Duan Ling Tian laughed. “Did you think that Martial Emperor Shi Qi will avenge you just because you hold the title ‘Martial Emperor’s disciple’? I don’t think he’ll recognize you even if he sees you,” Duan Ling Tian ridiculed him.
“You aren’t qualified for Lord Emperor Shi to come personally! Any direct disciple under Lord Emperor Shi can easily kill you.” Yang Chun sneered.
Meanwhile, his eyes gleamed as a light shot out when he lifted his arm.
“Oh, no!” Duan Ling Tian had been observing Yang Chun, and his face changed drastically when he discovered Yang Chun’s movement. He wanted to chase after that light, but he quickly discovered the speed of the light was extremely fast when it disappeared before his eyes. There was no way for him to catch up right now.
“Communication Jade Slip!” Duan Ling Tian turned pale. As someone who had the Rebirth Martial Emperor’s memory and knowledge on Inscriptions, he could tell the Communication Jade Slip Yang Chun sent was created by a Martial Emperor Stage Inscription Master.
It was so fast that he could not catch up!
“I was too careless.” Duan Ling Tian took a deep breath and looked at Yang Chun again. The cold glint in his eyes could not be any colder.
