Chapter 1208: Break In
Translator: EndlessFantasy Translation Editor: EndlessFantasy Translation
Duan Ling Tian dashed into Lost Stone Forest like a streak of lightning.
To ordinary martial artists, Lost Stone Forest was undoubtedly a great forbidden land.
If they were not careful, they would trigger the Killing Formation from walking into Illusory Formations and would be instantly killed.
Only people from Lost Stone Forest considered it as a normal ground and treated the Illusory Formations and Killing Formations like they were nothing.
However, walking in Lost Stone Forest was like walking on a normal ground for Duan Ling Tian.
He ignored the Illusory Formations completely and avoided the Killing Formations.
His successful intrusion of Lost Stone Forest very quickly caught the attention of the Martial Emperor’s followers who guarded the entrance of Lost Stone Forest.
After being momentarily stunned, the Martial Emperor’s followers showed themselves one after another.
They were shocked because the purple-clad young man before them was not affected by the Illusory Formations at all after entering Lost Stone Forest.
Moreover, the purple-clad young man even intentionally avoided the Killing Formations.
It could be luck if he only avoided it once, but how could it be luck when he avoided it two, three, four, and five times.
At this moment, the few Martial Emperor’s followers who were in charge of this entrance noticed something was wrong. They showed themselves immediately one after another and surrounded Duan Ling Tian who broke into Lost Stone Forest.
Faced with the purple-clad young man who walked in Lost Stone Forest as though it was a normal ground, the Martial Emperor’s followers did not dare to be reckless. One of them asked courteously, “May I know who are you, sir? Why did you break into our Lost Stone Forest?”
Duan Ling Tian briefly glanced at the few people before him. “Martial Emperor’s followers?”
“Yes.” They nodded.
“Bring me to Zhou Yi.” Suddenly, Duan Ling Tian looked at one of the Martial Emperor’s followers with a ferocious gleam in his eyes. It gave the follower goosebumps, and it shook him to his core.
“Sir…” Before the Martial Emperor’s follower could speak, he was interrupted by Duan Ling Tian.
He only saw Duan Ling Tian vanishing before his eyes as he moved and felt a strong wind sweeping in his direction.
When the follower snapped back to his senses, he felt an immense force on his shoulder, causing him to feel weak all over his body.
To his surprise, it was Duan Ling Tian who appeared before him like a lightning. Duan Ling Tian had grabbed his shoulder before he coldly said, “Lead the way!”
At this moment, that Martial Emperor’s follower and the others snapped back to their senses.
The purple-clad young man before them was here for Zhou Yi.
Naturally, Zhou Yi was no stranger to them. Not only was he a direct disciple of Lost Stone Forest’s Martial Emperor, but he was also the Martial Emperor’s favorite direct disciple.
‘How did Senior Brother Zhou offend such a violent person?’ The Martial Emperor’s followers’ hearts jolted.
They noticed how remarkable Duan Ling Tian was when he entered the Lost Stone Forest and walked in like it was a normal ground. Now that they heard he was here to look for their Martial Emperor’s direct disciple, Zhou Yi, with unconcealed ill intentions, they realized he was someone they could not and should not mess with.
It was not a joke!
It showed how confident the purple-clad young man was of his ability since he dared to come for Zhou Yi, the direct disciple of their Lost Stone Forest’s Martial Emperor.
Someone whose ability was on par with Zhou Yi could kill them with just a finger.
The Martial Emperor’s follower who was caught by Duan Ling Tian turned pale. Although he feared death, he did not dare to bring the purple-clad young man before him to look for his Senior Brother Zhou Yi.
He would still die anyway if he did that.
He would even drag his family into this. That was something he did not want to see happen.
Lost Stone Forest had strict rules that involved the followers’ families. Therefore, even if he died, he did not dare to break Lost Stone Forest’s rules.
“You’re not afraid of death?” When Duan Ling Tian noticed the Martial Emperor’s follower in his hand showed no signs of moving, his eyes turned even fiercer. Oppressive killing intent surged out of his body, causing the Martial Emperor’s follower’s face to change drastically. He had fear in his eyes.
However, although he was afraid, he remained motionless.
“Sir, please don’t put him in a tough spot.” Another Martial Emperor’s follower begged Duan Ling Tian at this moment, “There are rules in our Lost Stone Forest. We can’t betray anyone who is under Master Martial Emperor… If we do that, not only will we die, our families will be dragged into it as well.”
“Therefore, even if you kill him or us, it’s impossible for us to bring you to Senior Brother Zhou Yi… If we bring you there, it means we’ve betrayed Senior Brother Zhou Yi. At that time, not only will we not escape death, even our families won’t be able to escape death,” the Martial Emperor’s follower said with a bitter expression on his face.
“Sir, I can inform Senior Brother Zhou Yi about you through a Voice Transmission Jade Slip,” another Martial Emperor’s follower said soon after.
When Duan Ling Tian realized it was impossible for the Martial Emperor’s followers to bring him to Zhou Yi, he took a step back and said in a deep voice, “Tell him to hand over the person he took from my Ling Tian Sect… If anything happens to that person, I’ll take his life!”
“Also, tell him that… I’m Duan Ling Tian!” He added after that.
“Yes, yes.” After they heard what Duan Ling Tian said, the Martial Emperor’s followers did not dare to delay, and they quickly tossed a Voice Transmission Jade Slip that immediately vanished before his eyes.
The Voice Transmission Jade Slip’s lightning speed was on a higher level compared to his since it was made by a Martial Emperor Inscription Master.
The Martial Emperor’s followers felt relieved when they saw the purple-clad young man did not give them a hard time after the Voice Transmission Jade Slip was sent. However, they still felt a little anxious.
Although they had yet to see him attack, it was clear he was extraordinary based on his ability to break into Lost Stone Forest and walk in as though it was a normal ground.
Moreover, he was here to look for their Senior Brother Zhou Yi whom they respected. That made them realize the young man was not someone simple.
Therefore, they felt fortunate they managed to live.
At this very moment, Duan Ling Tian stood at the side as he calmly looked at the direction where the Voice Transmission Jade Slip went. He ignored the Martial Emperor’s followers before him.
When the Martial Emperor’s followers saw that, they knew they managed to extricate themselves from a tough spot.
They looked at each other and saw the gratefulness and anxiety in each other’s eyes.
Soon after, they began to communicate with each other through Voice Transmission as soon as they calmed down.
“I heard him saying earlier that… Senior Brother Zhou brought someone away from the Ling Tian Sect?” One of them was skeptical.
“Could it the woman that Senior Brother Zhou brought back previously?” Another person speculated.
“I guess it’s possible… That’s why I’ve been wondering why the woman ignored Senior Brother Zhou when he brought her back. As it turns out, Senior Brother Zhou kidnapped her.”
“Senior Brother Zhou’s so powerful. He was never interested in any woman. When he’s finally interested in someone, he immediately captured her.”
The Martial Emperor’s followers could not help but exclaim secretly.
Meanwhile, a silhouette appeared before the stone house made from a hollow gigantic rock deep in Lost Stone Forest. It was a tall, young man dressed in a black robe.
The black-clad young man suddenly lifted his arm and grabbed a streak of light that was shooting toward him.
A slip appeared in his hand when he opened it. His eyes gleamed. “Voice Transmission Jade Slip?”
Subsequently, the black-clad young man inserted his Origin Energy into the Voice Transmission Jade Slip in his hand. A voice entered his ears immediately. “Senior Brother Zhou, we’re at the southeastern entrance of Lost Stone Forest. Someone has broken in… He called himself Duan Ling Tian, and he’s asking you to hand over the person you took away from some Ling Tian Sect.”
“He also said… If something happens to that person, he’ll take your life.” The voice ended here.
“Duan Ling Tian? The person who killed Yang Chun?” The black-clad young man was Zhou Yi, the direct disciple of Lost Stone Forest’s Martial Emperor. He knew what was happening after he listened to the message in the Voice Transmission Jade Slip.
Duan Ling Tian was the Sect Leader of Ling Tian Sect. He was the lover of the woman that Zhou Yi liked.
Previously, he had taken the Nine-Nine Heavenly Tribulation oath that he would not kill Duan Ling Tian if the woman he liked stayed in Lost Stone Forest for ten years.
“I took an oath not to kill you, but I didn’t say I won’t cut you up… You came to me before I come for you… I like this.” A grin unknowingly appeared on Zhou Yi’s lips as his eyes gleamed coldly.
Although he had never met Duan Ling Tian before, he did not like Duan Ling Tian at all.
Not only did he not like Duan Ling Tian, but he could not wait to kill Duan Ling Tian!
Naturally, it was not because Duan Ling Tian had killed Yang Chun.
He could not care less about Yang Chun’s death.
The reason he went to Ling Tian Sect was not as simple as avenging Yang Chun, he was there for something else. He wanted to send a message to the person who killed Yang Chun. ‘Find out who is the master of the dog before beating it.’
Apart from that, the reason he despised Duan Ling Tian and could not wait to kill him was due to the woman he brought back to Lost Stone Forest with him.
He liked that woman and could not wait to make her his.
However, Duan Ling Tian was the woman’s lover.
If not for the Nine-Nine Heavenly Tribulation oath that he took to spare Duan Ling Tian’s life, he would definitely not let Duan Ling Tian live.
An evil grin appeared on Zhou Yi’s lips as he mumbled softly, “I’m interested to see… If she’ll still like you and call you her man when your cultivation base and four limbs are severed!”
Fortunately, there was nobody here. Otherwise, that person would have goosebumps from the grin on Zhou Yi’s face.
“There’s a path for you in heaven but you rather come to hell… Duan Ling Tian, you sent yourself here so don’t blame me!” Zhou Yi’s heart jolted before he vanished from his spot.
Naturally, he did not really vanish, but he was so fast that it seemed as though he had vanished into thin air.
Zhou Yi head to the southeastern side of Lost Stone Forest.
Duan Ling Tian was there.
At the southeastern entrance of Lost Stone Forest.
“He’s here!” Duan Ling Tian’s eyes that were fixed ahead suddenly lit up.
