Chapter 1275: Duan Ling Tian Strikes
Translator: EndlessFantasy Translation Editor: EndlessFantasy Translation
Did that toy boy just call them a dog?
Instantly, the two inner island disciples felt their rage take over, leaving them almost senseless.
“Boy, do you want to die?!”
They were furious as their strength surged and caused the air to stir. Waves of energy swept out along with a series of air explosions which sounded like detonating mines. It seemed to transform into a gust of raging wind that swept in all directions.
The nearly irrational inner island disciples no longer thought of Li Fei and Ke’er. Their robes kept bulging and then disappearing with the swell of their power.
Two figures flashed like lightning and headed straight for Duan Ling Tian.
“They’ve made their move!”
Although most of the onlookers could not see their movements, upon vanishing, they realized that they had made a move.
“Now, we have something to see!”
While many of them were anxious to see chaos erupt, all of them edged farther away to watch the situation from a distance to avoid getting involved.
At the same time, Duan Ling Tian shifted leisurely as the two inner island disciples who charged towards him with great momentum. When he moved, he appeared in front of Li Fei and Ke’er who stood alongside with each other and defended him from behind instead!
Li Fei and Ke’er, who planned to fight the inner island disciples with their lives, sensed a flash in their eyes before a familiar back appeared in front of them.
“That’s insanely fast!”
At once, they were shocked.
“Your efforts are futile!” After they recovered from their shock upon witnessing Duan Ling Tian’s speed, his indifferent voice rang in their ears.
“Arghhh!” At the same time, they heard a loud bang followed by a horrible shriek.
No! To be precise, two horrible shrieks rented the air.
It was hard to differentiate whether it came from one person or two because the screams rang out together.
When they looked towards the source of the screams, they saw the bodies of the two inner island disciples shoot out like flying arrows and then smashing onto the ground.
The power in their bodies was instantly annihilated as if it had never even existed.
“No! No! My Dantian! My Dantian…”
“You… You’re ruthless! You’re terribly ruthless!!”
Soon, the onlookers including Li Fei and Ke’er saw that the disciples kept rolling around on the floor while crying out continuously.
They soon gnashed their teeth as they glared at the purple-clad youth who stood in the air as if he was their mortal enemy who had killed their father and snatched their wives.
Many people came to their senses and reacted. “Their Dantians have been destroyed?”
“Previously, they said they wanted to destroy other people’s Dantian… Who’d have known that their Dantian would’ve been destroyed instead in just the blink of an eye?”
“Duan Ling Tian is terrifyingly strong! From the beginning to the end, I never even saw him move.”
“Me too! I was looking at him the whole time but I couldn’t see him budge at all.”
There was an uproar amongst the onlookers. When they looked at Duan Ling Tian again, their gazes were laced with fear and admiration.
At that time, Li Fei and Ke’er glanced at each other and saw the shock and awe in each other’s eyes.
Duan Ling Tian completely ignored the fearful eyes of the surrounding people and the ferocious glare from the two inner island disciples. He turned around and called out to Li Fei and Ke’er, “Let’s go.”
Both of them nodded obediently.
Simultaneously, curiosity arose in their eyes. They were inextricably interested in their man’s experience over the years.
Judging from his strength, it was comparable to the strength of a Martial Emperor’s direct disciple on the Cloud Continent!
Such strength was definitely similar to the core disciples of the Hidden Fog Island. Naturally, he could easily destroy two inner island disciples.
When the three of them walked away, the onlookers stared.
Earlier, Duan Ling Tian could have easily killed the two inner island disciples if he wanted to. However, he did not do so.
If he had ended their lives, those who were present were bound to spread the news to even the ears of the senior officials of the Hidden Fog Island.
Then, the senior official of the Hidden Fog Island would definitely be enraged.
After all, if a disciple of the Hidden Fog Island were killed on the island, it would undoubtedly be humiliating for them.
Still, Duan Ling Tian was not afraid of any senior official of the Hidden Fog Island. He could always escape even if he could not match the senior officials who might not be able to react in time.
However, if that were the case, it would mean that he would miss the prize of the Hidden Fog Martial Competition, the Saint Stone.
That was not the ending he wanted.
To him, the two inner island disciples’ lives were far less important than the Saint Stone.
Hence, for the sake of the Saint Stone, he spared their lives but destroyed their Dantian to make their lives a living hell.
The incident today was all because of them provoking him and even publicly proclaiming that they would destroy him Dantian.
As such, his actions could be considered as self-defense.
Even if the people from the Hidden Fog Island were mad, they would not dare to find fault with him publicly. After all, they did not have a reasonable cause to do so.
When Duan Ling Tian left with Li Fei and Ke’er, the two inner island disciples stared them down with angry eyes. They felt like the sky was collapsing on them. Having had their cultivation base destroyed, they were now destined to be mediocre.
Just thinking of how they were reduced to their current state, they almost gritted their teeth until they were crushed while they glared at the three departing figures.
The two inner island disciples were roaring in their hearts, “I’ll never let you go… I’ll never let all of you go!”
The onlookers finally came to their senses. Glancing at the two inner island disciples in pity, they soon dispersed after seeing the three figures leaving their line of sight.
After the two inner island disciples retrieved some healing pills to consume, one of them growled angrily while grinding his teeth, “I want him and those two bitches to die!”
“We must find a way to avenge ourselves!” The other person demanded while fire burned in her eyes.
“I swear I must avenge myself. Otherwise, I’m not worthy of being a person!”
Exchanging a hard look, they left the Hidden Fog City together and headed to the east of the Hidden Fog Island.
On the other hand, Duan Ling Tian brought Li Fei and Ke’er and left for the west of the Hidden Fog City. They only stopped when they reached above a vast forest.
“Young Master, you’re so strong!” Ke’er looked at Duan Ling Tian in admiration. As usual, her face was flushed because of the excitement.
“Rascal, how did you become so strong? I thought that after so many years, Sister Ke’er and I would’ve overtaken you… I never expected that we’d still be left behind by you.” Li Fei had a bitter smile on her face as she thought about how childish her previous thoughts were.
“Young Master, how did you make it through all these years?” Ke’er asked curiously since she was very interested in what had happened to him these past few years.
Li Fei also looked at Duan Ling Tian with the same piqued interest.
“These years?” Duan Ling Tian became quiet after hearing that and then he sighed, “Ever since I lost my memory, even though I’ve recovered bits of it… There are still some that haven’t been restored. I only remember that I’m from the Southern Outer Land, but I’ve forgotten everything else about the place.”
As Duan Ling Tian spoke, he looked at Li Fei and Ke’er expectantly. “I think… The memory of us should belong to the part of memory from the Southern Outer Land.”
“Can you tell me about our past? Maybe I’ll be able to remember something,” he urgently pressed as he looked at Li Fei and Ke’er.
He always wanted to know about his past, but he could never remember it.
Now, he wanted to know about his past even more after meeting these two women who seemed familiar and affectionate towards him, even addressing themselves as his fiancée.
He wanted to know how did they meet, how they got together and how they got engaged.
“Let Sister Ke’er start. She knew you before I did.” Li Fei looked at Ke’er encouragingly.
“Young Master, the first time I met you was on the streets of Fresh Breeze Town… During my darkest days, my most helpless moments.”
“Back then, my mother had just died. She was my only family, so I even felt like the sky was falling. At that time, I only had one thought: no matter what happened, I had to give my mother a proper burial. Mother didn’t get to enjoy her life when she was alive, so I couldn’t let her suffer when she was dead. For the sake of my mother, I was selling myself on the streets to give her a proper burial.”
After she said that, Ke’er’s face was already filled with tears. Then, she looked at Duan Ling Tian and smiled. “That was when I met you, Young Master… You were the first one who was willing to pay for my mother’s burial without judging my appearance.
“From then on, I knew that you were a good person. So, after I buried my mother, I decided to follow you even if you never intended for me to do so.
“It turns out that I made the right choice. After we arrived at the Li Clan of Fresh Breeze Town, you and the Mrs treated me like family and took great care of me. From then on, I’ve regarded both of you as my only family in this world.” While Ke’er spoke slowly, recollection gleamed in her eyes.
“After that, I stayed at the Li Clan of Fresh Breeze Town. I witnessed you rise all the way to become the top among the younger generation of Fresh Breeze Town!
“Not only that, you were later recommended by the Li Clan of Fresh Breeze Town to the Li Clan of Aurora City which was also the original clan of the clan in the latter… That’s where you met Sister Fei’Er.”
Ke’er paused and then she looked at Li Fei beside her. “Sister Li Fei, you can tell him what happened after that.”
Li Fei already knew what occurred after that.
