Translator: EndlessFantasy Translation Editor: EndlessFantasy Translation
When Song Ting asked his question, everyone’s attention shifted to Duan Ling Tian.
Except for the Nangong Twins, everyone else was curious.
This purple-clad young man’s strength was not inferior to the Martial Emperor’s direct disciples, and yet he came to participate in the Selection of Ling Xuan Peak’s Martial Emperor’s disciples and followers. It was really quite strange.
One had to know there were quite a few Martial Emperors and Demon Emperors who were stronger than Martial Emperor Ling Xuan on Cloud Continent.
Martial Emperor Ling Xuan’s strength was at most average compared to all the publicly known Martial Emperors and Demon Emperors on Cloud Continent.
In their opinion, people like Duan Ling Tian with his strength at the peak of the Martial Monarch Stage could be the direct disciple of a stronger Martial Emperor or Demon Emperor.
“What purpose could I have?” In the face of Song Ting’s question, Duan Ling Tian merely glanced at him coldly. He shrugged lazily and said, “You’re overthinking things.”
“It seems like you won’t talk if I don’t attack.” Song Ting’s face sank, and his tone became colder.
“What? You still want to attack me?” Duan Ling Tian smiled brightly. He narrowed his eyes as he smiled.
“Do you think you’re invincible just because you’re able to kill one of our Ling Xuan Peak’s member? You should know that the Lu Zhong you killed was merely a normal Martial Emperor’s disciple of Ling Xuan Peak.”
Song Ting’s voice held a hint of certainty. “I’ll admit you’re quite strong. However, if you think I’m as useless as Lu Zhong, then you’re really stupid!”
No matter what, Lu Zhong was one of his people.
As the saying went, ‘One has to look at the master before beating the dog’. The purple-clad young man had killed Lu Zhong in front of him. That was equivalent to hitting him in the face. It embarrassed and angered him.
At this moment, he seemed to feel the mocking gazes directed at him from all directions.
Even Zhong An who stood at the side was shocked.
He did not think the purple-clad young man would kill Lu Zhong, Song Ting’s crazy dog.
He had to admit he was a little pleased.
“Zhong An, I’m afraid this person with a mysterious identity came to our Ling Xuan Peak to participate in the Selection of the Martial Emperor’s disciples and followers with an ulterior motive… You and I should join hands to force him to tell us his purpose for coming to Ling Xuan Peak. We’ll kill him if he refuses to say anything to save trouble in the future!” Song Ting sent a Voice Transmission to Zhong An.
Zhong An frowned slightly.
To be honest, he was not unwilling to fight together with Song Ting. However, the identity of the purple-clad young man was too mysterious.
Although he and Song Ting were usually on opposite sides, they were still united in important matters regarding the safety of Ling Xuan Peak. Therefore, he flew out and stood beside Song Ting.
Both of them were going to fight Duan Ling Tian together.
“Senior Brother Zhong An is going to join hands with Senior Brother Song Ting?” That scene shocked many people.
“That Duan Ling Tian… He actually…” In the distance, Qiao Zhong was dumbstruck. He could not recover from the shock for quite a while.
When Duan Ling Tian easily killed Lu Zhong, he was shocked by Duan Ling Tian’s strength. Although he knew Duan Ling Tian was strong, he did not think his strength would be so great.
When he saw the Martial Emperor’s direct disciple whose side he was on, Zhong An, had joined hands with Song Ting to fight Duan Ling Tian, he could not help but feel excited.
Duan Ling Tian could actually make the two Martial Emperor’s direct disciples, who were usually as incompatible as fire and water, join hands and fight him.
“I’m afraid his luck is really bad.”
“Regardless if it’s Senior Brother Song Ting or Senior Brother Zhong An, they’re both Ling Xuan Peak’s Martial Emperor’s direct disciples… The purple-clad young man’s strength is at most on par with a Martial Emperor’s direct disciple. He might win one of them, but it’s impossible for him to win when it’s two against one.”
“How do you know his strength is at most on par with a Martial Emperor’s direct disciples?”
“Hpmh! As we all know, Martial Emperor’s direct disciples are already at the peak of Martial Monarch Stage… Those stronger than Martial Emperor’s direct disciples are only Martial Emperor powerhouses. Do you think he’s a Martial Emperor powerhouse?”
The group of Martial Emperor’s disciples and followers were whispering among themselves. None of them thought Duan Ling Tian had the advantage facing the two greatest Martial Emperor’s direct disciples in Ling Xuan Peak.
“Your strength is admirable… I’m Zhong An, the third direct disciple under Ling Xuan Peak’s Martial Emperor. I would like to know why you’re participating in our Ling Xuan Peak’s Selection for the Martial Emperor’s disciples and followers with your strength?”
Zhong An looked at Duan Ling Tian solemnly and asked, “As far as I know, most of the cultivation places of Martial Emperors and Demon Emperors in the Inner Land of Cloud Continent are also holding the Selection of the Martial Emperor’s disciples and followers.”
“Why do you ask so many questions! I know he’s bad with just a look.” Before Duan Ling Tian could respond, Song Ting sneered again with a cold gleam in his eyes. Then, he disappeared with a ‘Hu’ sound and reappeared in front of Duan Ling Tian.
A loud explosion reverberated in the air, causing airwaves to sweep out in all directions.
The airwaves set off a series of air explosion that sounded like exploding mines. It created a flurry of hurricane that caused everyone, apart from Zhong An, to squint.
Although they did not clearly see what had happened, they knew Duan Ling Tian was fighting with Song Ting.
“Song Ting…” Zhong An’s face sank. He did not expect Song Ting to be so eager.
Naturally, he knew of Song Ting’s intention. He wanted to kill the other party without giving the other party a chance to speak to vent his anger.
Although he guessed Song Ting’s intentions, he still could not stand by and watch because he could see that Song Ting was not a match for his opponent.
Naturally, he intended to fight, but he did not plan to go along with Song Ting’s plan to kill the other party.
He would cooperate to suppress the other party and force him to tell him his purpose for coming to Ling Xuan Peak. If his purpose was not malicious, who knew if there would be a fourth Martial Emperor’s direct disciple in Ling Xuan Peak.
When Zhong An thought about how the other party might become his Junior Brother, he was so excited that he held back his attacks and movement.
However, he quickly discovered that the opponent’s strength did not allow him to hold back.
Boom! Boom! Boom! Boom! Boom!
A burst of deafening explosion reverberated in the air again. Duan Ling Tian was already in a fight with both Martial Emperor’s direct disciples, Song Ting and Zhong An.
Both Song Ting and Zhong An had taken out their Spirit Weapons.
On the other hand, Duan Ling Tian remained empty-handed. However, it did not seem like he was at a disadvantage. In fact, he seemed to have a slight advantage.
Song Ting and Zhong An used a sword and a blade respectively. They still could not win the battle after a while. Feeling embarrassed and angry, they finally decided to unleash their full strength.
As Ling Xuan Peak’s Martial Emperor’s direct disciples, their blade’s ray and sword’s shadow cooperated seamlessly with each other and headed straight for Duan Ling Tian with a great momentum.
Wherever the blade’s ray and sword’s shadow passed, the onlookers evaded.
The group of people who stood on the stone platform behind also had to evade it.
When the blade’s ray and sword’s shadow fell, the vast stone platform was cut into countless pieces like a tofu.
The stone platform with countless cracks was swept by their strength. In a blink of an eye, it began to fall apart.
Moreover, with their attacks, some of the broken stones from the ruined vast stone platform flew up in the air.
When both of them attacked, the Heaven and Earth Energy stirred and eventually formed a vast Heaven and Earth Phenomenon.
At the void above them, there were seven ancient black dragons’ silhouettes respectively. It meant each of their attacks contained the strength of seven ancient black dragons.
“God! He… He’s also so strong?” While many people fawned over the strength Song Ting and Zhong An displayed, someone’s shout caught the people’s attention.
On the other side, stood a purple-clad young man.
The purple-clad young man stood there as his robe billowed in the wind. His long black hair was also fluttering in the wind since his hair band was shattered by the powerful force.
There was a five-colored flame blazing on the purple-clad young man’s body. It exuded a chilling aura.
At the void above him, there were seven ancient black dragons’ silhouettes that indicated he was not inferior to Song Ting and Zhong An.
“That’s why Zhong An and I couldn’t capture him… It turns out he has been using the strength of seven ancient black dragons from the beginning.”
Song Ting was not shocked when he saw the scene. Instead, he laughed. “However, with me and Zhong An unleashing our full strength, anyone of us would be on par with him.”
The killing intent in Song Ting’s eyes intensified when he thought about this.
“What kind of person is he? He can mobilize the strength of seven ancient black dragons without utilizing his Spirit Weapon!” Many onlookers exclaimed in shock.
Their exclamations were heard by Song Ting, and it shocked him. He seemed to have noticed something before his face changed dramatically.
The strength their opponent displayed was before he utilized his Spirit Weapon.
“Third Junior Brother, we have to kill him before he takes his Spirit Weapon out… Otherwise, we’ll be the ones dying today!”
Song Ting hurriedly sent a Voice Transmission to Zhong An who was fighting Duan Ling Tian with him.
After Zhong An heard Song Ting’s Voice Transmission, Zhong An trembled for a moment before he reacted.
Earlier, he was also stunned by the strength Duan Ling Tian displayed without even using a Spirit Weapon. At this moment, he knew their opponent’s strength was greater than theirs.
When he heard Song Ting’s reminder, his expression turned solemn. He no longer dared to be negligent.
If their opponent took out his Spirit Weapon, he and Song Ting would be defeated!
At that time, not only Song Ting, but he would also be at the mercy of the other party.
For a time, both Zhong An and Song Ting’s strength seemed to increase a little. They headed straight for Duan Ling Tian with great momentum.
