Chapter 1209: Duan Ling Tian’s Madness
Translator: EndlessFantasy Translation Editor: EndlessFantasy Translation
Almost when Duan Ling Tian noticed it, a gush of wind blew over and made the purple robe on his body flap loudly along the wind.
In the next moment, a black figure appeared before him with a flash before his eyes.
It was a young man who was dressed in black and whose height was similar to that of Duan Ling Tian. The instance he appeared, his gaze was already trained on Duan Ling Tian and was analyzing him from top to bottom.
“Senior Brother Zhou!” Right at this point, the few Martial Emperor’s followers at the side greeted the young man clad in black respectfully.
The young man was Zhou Yi who had just rushed over. He was a Martial Emperor’s direct disciple, and he was a renowned God’s favored in the Lost Stone Forest.
However, Zhou Yi did not appear to hear the greetings from the Martial Emperor’s followers who took the initiative to greet him. Or maybe, he just felt it was beneath him to reply those few Martial Emperor’s followers.
In the eye of the Martial Emperor’s direct disciples such as Zhou Yi, even the Martial Emperor’s disciples of the Lost Stone Forest were merely a group of obedient dogs.
Even if a Martial Emperor’s follower was willing to be his dog, he was not necessarily ready to take him in.
In his eyes, the Martial Emperor’s followers were no different than ants. In his opinion, there was no need for him pay attention to those ants that took the initiative to greet him at all.
With a haughty look, Zhou Yi studied Duan Ling Tian from top to bottom. After a while later, he finally asked in a questioning tone, “You’re Duan Ling Tian? The man that Tian Wu loves?”
In the face of Zhou Yi’s query, Duan Ling Tian did not give a damn as if he had never heard him at all. Not only that, he even glared at Zhou Yi and voiced out his questions, “Are you Zhou Yi? Where’s Tian Wu?”
He had just found out about this newcomer’s identity from the greeting of those few Martial Emperor’s followers.
It was his target: Zhou Yi. Tian Wu had been taken away by this man.
Right now, as he retorted back to Zhou Yi, Duan Ling Tian’s eyes were gleaming with a sharp glint. His entire being seemed to have transformed into a beast that was lurking in the dark, ready to pounce, hurt, and kill anytime now.
Just like how Duan Ling Tian ignored Zhou Yi’s questions, Zhou Yi ignored his too. Looking at Duan Ling Tian, his gaze gradually turned chilly as he spelled out his words neither slow nor fast. “I wonder why Tian Wu would love an ant like you… However, since I’ve sworn not to kill you, I won’t kill you at all.”
“I asked, where’s Tian Wu?” Seeing how Zhou Yi ignored his question about where Tian Wu was, Duan Ling Tian’s face darkened, and his eyes seemed to spout fire out as he glared deadly at Zhou Yi.
Finally, Zhou Yi answered Duan Ling Tian. However, when he replied, his tone was full of contempt. It was a contempt that came from the bottom of his heart. “No matter where Tian Wu is, it doesn’t concern you at all… From now on, you and she are two people from two different worlds.”
“Who the hell are you? Who are you to decide whether Tian Wu and I are people from the same or different worlds?” Duan Ling Tian mocked in disdain with a smirk, “Besides, if you still don’t hand her over, you, as a direct disciple of a Martial Emperor, will soon turn into history just like this.”
He was just insane!
This was what the few Martial Emperor’s followers, who were watching the drama unfolding, thought about Duan Ling Tian.
From what he said, Duan Ling Tian was going to turn Zhou Yi, the Martial Emperor’s direct disciple of the Lost Stone Forest, into history.
In their opinion, this was basically a tale from “Arabian Nights”!
Zhou Yi was the direct disciple of Martial Emperor Shi Qi, the owner of their Lost Stone Forest.
Zhou Yi’s innate talent was incredibly high. He was more skilled than any other direct disciple, and on top of his diligence in cultivating, he had always been highly doted on by Martial Emperor Shi Qi. Eventually, he became Martial Emperor Shi Qi’s fondest direct disciple ever.
Not only that, nobody else knew about Zhou Yi’s strength except for a select few who were extremely clear about it.
Concerning strength, their Senior Brother Zhou was only inferior to the Martial Emperor Shi Qi. Even the other Martial Emperor direct disciples were no match for him at all.
Upon hearing Duan Ling Tian’s words, Zhou Yi was first stunned before he burst out laughing immediately. As he whooped frenziedly, he mocked Duan Ling Tian, “Turn me into history? Well, then, I’d like to see how would a mere low-level first-rate force leader like you will be able to turn me into history!”
However, there was a hint of disdain and contempt in the depth of his eyes.
Zhou Yi’s words had apparently entered the ears of many Martial Emperor’s direct disciples, and they observed Duan Ling Tian with a strange look. “This guy is just a leader from a low-level first-rate force?”
“And here I was thinking how powerful he was… A leader from a low-level first-rate force is just slightly stronger than we Martial Emperor’s followers at most, and he isn’t even comparable to the Martial Emperor’s disciples, let alone the direct disciples.”
“He’s just a mere leader of the low-level first-rate force, and he dares to come to pick a fight with Senior Brother Zhou in our Lost Stone Forest? Isn’t he just seeking for his own death?”
The gaze that the few Martial Emperor’s followers used to look at Duan Ling Tian with was no longer filled with dread but had been replaced by pity instead.
To them, in terms of strength, a mere leader of the low-level first-rate force would never be able to catch up with Zhou Yi, the Martial Emperor’s direct disciple of their Lost Stone Forest, no matter how fast he accelerated his training.
“However, just now, Senior Brother Zhou mentioned that he had sworn not to kill him… I wonder what has happened between the both of them.”
“It seems like it’s precisely because of this that he dared to come and provoke Senior Brother Zhou in our Lost Stone Forest.”
“That must be it! Otherwise, how could someone like him dare to offend Senior Brother Zhou, our Martial Emperor’s direct disciple, even if we lend him 100 guts!?”
“And to think that I actually thought he’s a powerhouse who was at the same level with Senior Brother Zhou… How naive I was!”
Duan Ling Tian clearly picked up the exchanges between these few Martial Emperor’s followers. However, he just ignored them.
“Since you want to see it for yourselves, I’ll show you!” A piercingly cold brilliance flashed across Duan Ling Tian’s eyes after being provoked by Zhou Yi. With a flash, he completely disappeared before the eyes of the few Martial Emperor’s followers.
He was so swift that they could not follow his track at all.
Duan Ling Tian was very adamant that if he did not let Zhou Yi taste the meaning of pain right at this moment, he would never hand Tian Wu over. For this very reason, he had to do something and at least, inflict some pain on Zhou Yi.
Dragon Soaring The Nine Heavens!
Like a Divine Dragon roaring past, Duan Ling Tian’s figure charged towards Zhou Yi.
In the midst of charging, he seemed to have transformed into a Divine Dragon as well. To be exact, he was a five-colored Divine Dragon.
Five different colors gathered by his side and emitted jets of penetrating sword intent. It was the Fused Profundity and Sword Profundity.
In just a twinkling of an eye, Duan Ling Tian arrived near Zhou Yi. He gave his Quasi Royal Grade Sword that had long been prepared a quick flick and instantly, he performed his sword technique.
Nine Dragon’s Radiant Flash!
At that instance, the Quasi Royal Grade Spirit Sword pointed forward and blasted out a sword ray which was divided into nine beams and transformed into nine five-colored Divine Dragons.
A flash of brilliance flashed across the nine Divine Dragons’ eyes, and eighteen streaks of radiant flares burst out.
Swish! Swish! Swish! Swish! Swish!
Eighteen perfect radiant flares blasted out and pierced through the sky, setting off a series of ear-piercing whistling sounds as they charged directly towards Zhou Yi’s vital parts.
“That’s supersonic speed!”
From the very beginning, in the face of Duan Ling Tian who was making his assault towards him, Zhou Yi remained calm as though he felt that his opponent was beneath him.
However, right now, the moment he saw those eighteen perfect beams of light that were charging at himself, he could not help but be taken back by shock.
It had never crossed his mind that Duan Ling Tian would be able to cast such a swift attack.
If this speed had been just a little faster, it would have posed a threat to him already.
Without any hesitation, in a heartbeat, Zhou Yi vanished from the spot in the next instance. He brushed against the eighteen beams of light that were hurtling at him and he fled.
When Zhou Yi reappeared once again, he was already far away in the sky.
“It looks like I’ve underestimated you.” When Zhou Yi looked at Duan Ling Tian again, although his face was still full of contempt, there was a hint of astonishment in the depth of his eyes.
It was apparent that he had never thought that Duan Ling Tian would be able to cast out such an impressive level of attack just now.
At the same time, with Duan Ling Tian’s hand resting on his sword, his Heaven and Earth Energy started to swirl above his head and they gathered into a Heaven and Earth Phenomenon very soon.
The silhouettes of six ancient black dragons and 2,000 ancient horned dragons formed.
Judging from this occurrence, Duan Ling Tian had probably already exerted all of his strength and cast everything out just now
However, with his full power, along with the Nine Dragons’ Radiant Flash, Zhou Yi still managed to dodge him.
“Zhou Yi is much stronger than I thought,” Duan Ling Tian thought to himself while staring at the young man in black in front of him. His expression remained unchanged as though he had long been mentally prepared for this to happen.
“The strength of six ancient black dragons and 2,000 ancient horned dragons?” Other than taking Zhou Yi by bafflement, the Heaven and Earth Phenomenon above Duan Ling Tian’s head had also caused the few spectating Martial Emperor’s followers to feel an inexplicable sense of disbelief too.
“He’s actually this strong!”
“Isn’t he just a leader from a low-level first-rate force?”
“Are the leaders of such forces this powerful now?”
The few Martial Emperor’s followers stood watching each other. With horrified expressions, they whispered to one another.
As far as they could recall, such a powerhouse would already be deemed stronger than many of the Martial Emperor’s disciples from their Lost Stone Forest. In fact, he could already be regarded as the leader of many higher middle-level and even high-level first-rate forces.
However, according to Senior Brother Zhou, this guy was just a leader of a low-level first-rate force.
Swish! Swish! Swish!
A series of faint sword vibrations resonated and that was when the Quasi Royal Grade Spirit Sword in Duan Ling Tian’s hand that had split to become nine swords transformed and started revolving around his body, constantly swirling around.
Duan Ling Tian who was the center of the nine revolving swords appeared to be particularly unreal. He seemed like he was not a normal human at all.
“If you only have such pathetic tricks up your sleeve, I’m afraid you’ll leave the Lost Stone Forest crawling on your hands and knees later,” Zhou Yi looked at Duan Ling Tian calmly and slurred scornfully.
Leaving by crawling on his hands and knees!
He had already decided to cripple Duan Ling Tian’s Dantian and then break all four of his limbs, before making him crawl out of the Lost Stone Forest and disappear from his sight.
He believed that once Duan Ling Tian had become a lost dog, the woman that he loved would no longer look at such a pathetic man anymore.
Then, he would have a bigger opportunity to make that woman shift her love towards him.
