Chapter 1286: The Hidden Fog Martial Competition Is About To Start!

Killing three seabirds with a bolt of lightning!
Duan Ling Tian had just literally carried out the saying “killing three birds with one arrow”!
If anyone who was skilled in using a longbow saw such archery skill, he would definitely be taken by shock.
The group of seabirds flying across the sky had initially been moving swiftly. One had to possess advanced archery skills to kill one of them using just a bow and arrow.
If one wanted to kill two birds with one arrow, other than having advanced archery skills, one had to possess strong observation and judgment skills as well.
Only then could one kill two seabirds with one arrow.
The requirement would be even higher in the case of killing three birds with one arrow.
The chance of the three swift-moving seabirds forming a straight line would happen in the blink of an eye.
Killing three of them in one shot in just that blink of an eye would no doubt be even more difficult. It would be far greater than the challenge of killing two birds with one arrow.
Dragon Soaring The Nine Heavens!
Somehow, Duan Ling Tian’s body charged out and seemed to have transformed into a divine dragon that soared through the nine heavens.
As he suddenly came to a halt, the bodies of the three seabirds appeared in front of him and hovered in the air as they were lifted by an invisible energy that allowed him to study them.
“Darn, I missed a little.” After glancing at the three dead seabirds, Duan Ling Tian seemed to have noticed something. With a shake of his head, he sighed regrettably.
The reason he sighed was how the three birds had died.
Two of the birds had their left eyes pierced while the last had its throat stabbed.
His lament about missing his mark a little was due to how the last seabird had died differently from the first two.
When Duan Ling Tian first made his move earlier, he originally wanted to pierce through the three seabirds’ left eyes and kill them with one arrow.
Right now, although they were dead, the cause of death of one of the seabird was very different from what he had previously imagined.
For this very reason, he was very unsatisfied.
If someone else had been there, he would be rendered speechless after knowing what was going through Duan Ling Tian’s mind right then.
Being able to hone his archery skills to such a level in just the span of a day could be deemed utterly shocking.
Yet, he was still unsatisfied!
Was that not a little too much?
Of course, this was also because nobody knew about Duan Ling Tian’s past. Had they known about the life of Duan Ling Tian’s past reincarnation on Earth as a Weapons Specialist, they would not have thoughts like that at all.
During his past reincarnation, his marksmanship was the best in the entire planet Earth.
The meaning of the six words “The strongest Weapons Specialist on Earth” was in no way a joke.
Other than having a horrifying personal combat ability, Duan Ling Tian’s marksmanship was also now at a level that would make anyone panic-stricken if they heard about it.
For this reason, Duan Ling Tian had really high expectations of himself.
“The archery set is still a little behind the firearms… If it were the firearms that I used on Earth, I’d have faith in piercing their left eyes in one shot as long as the force is strong enough,” Duan Ling Tian thought to himself as his heartbeat quickened.
However, he was not dejected because of that. Quickly, he submerged himself in cultivating his archery skill again until he forgot about the time.
Another day passed.
Again, he attempted shooting three birds with one arrow.
However, this time, he precisely shot the three seabirds’ left eyes with one arrow and completed the mission that he had set for himself.
Ever since then, Duan Ling Tian had completely mastered his archery skill.
“Right now, it’s time for me officially cultivate the Colossal Aerolite Arrow.” The moment he thought of this, his feelings turned into turmoil right away.
However, before that, he suddenly recalled something.
“Bastard, is there any particular thing that I need to pay attention to when I cultivate the Saint Grade Martial Tactic?” Opening his mouth suddenly, Duan Ling Tian asked Wang Ba — or to be more precise, Wang Ba’s soul — who had been residing in his body.
Wang Ba said that he used to be a Saint Stage powerhouse in the Dao Martial Saint Land.
Therefore, he had tons of questions to ask Wang Ba since it was his first time cultivating the Saint Grade Martial Tactic.
However, Wang Ba did not respond.
“Oh yeah… I almost forgot.” Soon, as a lightbulb went off in Duan Ling Tian’s mind, he suddenly seemed to recall something.
At the same time, with a jolt, the vast Spiritual Energy that gathered quietly deep in his mind suddenly became agitated.
“Boy, do you want to squeeze me to death?” Just as the Spiritual Energy spread out according to Duan Ling Tian’s control, an exasperated voice entered his ears right away.
It was Wang Ba.
“I’m letting you out now, aren’t I?” Duan Ling Tian replied nonchalantly.
“Boy, don’t you think you owe me an explanation? Where’s the respect for my dignity here by just sealing me off using your Spiritual Energy without any reason?” Wang Ba scoffed in a deep voice.
“Dignity?” Duan Ling Tian’s expression remained unchanged as he asked calmly, “Do you still even have that now? Anyway… Don’t tell me that you don’t even know why I used my Spiritual Energy to seal you off in the first place.”
“Hmph!” Wang Ba snorted coldly, “Boy, you underestimate me too much! I’ve lived for so many years and what kind of woman haven’t I seen before? Do you really think I’d take a peek at you and those two girls having sex?”
Wang Ba still clearly remembered that the last time when he was sealed by Duan Ling Tian using his Spiritual Energy, it had been in that wooden house that he had built together with the two girls nearby. As for the reason why he had done so, well, having gone through a lot in his life, he could easily guess the reason.
It was none other than worrying that he would take a peek at their sexual lives.
“Who knows?” Duan Ling Tian answered nonchalantly, “You said so yourself before… You’re a Devil Cultivator. Just the name ‘Devil Cultivator’ doesn’t sound that pleasant already.”
“You…!” Upon hearing this, Wang Ba became enraged immediately.
“Better be mentally prepared… In the future, I’ll still use my Spiritual Energy to seal your soul off if there’s a need,” Duan Ling Tian continued.
He did not want Wang Ba to watch the fun when he was having sex with the two girls.
Perhaps, Wang Ba might have been a Saint Stage powerhouse once, but right then, his soul that was lodging in his body was extremely weak. Duan Ling Tian could easily use his Spiritual Energy that had reached the Martial Emperor Stage to suppress it.
“Boy, you’ll come to regret it… How dare you treat a Saint Stage powerhouse like that!?” Wang Ba’s tone was full of dissatisfaction.
“Keep talking and I’ll seal you off now!” Duan Ling Tian threatened Wang Ba, causing him not to dare to say a single word more. As the saying went, “one must bow down to circumstances”. He had no choice but to swallow the humiliation silently.
Soon, Duan Ling Tian recalled the main objective and asked, “Oh yeah, the reason I let you out is to ask you if there’s anything that I should pay attention to when I cultivate the Saint Grade Martial Tactic.”
Just like that, with Wang Ba’s help, he began to cultivate the Saint Grade Martial Tactic Colossal Aerolite Arrow officially and got ready to attend the Hidden Fog Martial Competition that was about to come.
Of course, in this period of time, he had done some other things as well such as refining pills.
Or to be more precise, using the Demon Emperor’s Beast Core to refine pills.
Other than the Stygian Scale Bear’s Beast Core that he had obtained the last time, he had also purposely gone to search for a few live targets in the sea when he was cultivating the Colossal Aerolite Arrow. Because of that, he had obtained a few other Demon Emperors’ Beast Cores.
To him, there was not much difficulty in refining the pills using the Demon Emperors’ Beast Cores. Furthermore, the pill forming rate was pretty high too.
However, due to the reason that those Demon Emperors that he killed were of a lower level, the pills made from their Beast Cores did not provide him much elevation in his cultivation base.
However, despite that, they did indeed bring great improvement to Li Fei and Ke’er.
The Demon Emperor’s Beast Core was originally the crystallization of the Demon Emperors’ entire Origin Energy.
After Duan Ling Tian had refined them into pills, the medicinal efficacy became easy to be absorbed.
Therefore, the cultivation base of the two girls improved rapidly as they advanced at a tremendous pace before the Hidden Fog Martial Competition took place.
As the Hidden Fog Martial Competition was getting near, the atmosphere on the Hidden Fog Island started to change too.
On the southern island, a person appeared on top of a spacious mansion and was glaring intensely at a woman waiting there before asking in a deep voice, “Are those two girls still not yet back?”
“Yes, they aren’t back yet.” The woman nodded. She was none other than Xu Rong, You Han Valley’s first Senior Sister.
As for the other person who had asked her in the deep voice, it was none other than Martial Emperor You Han.
“It looks like the two girls seem to have forgotten about me after they have their fiancé.” As Martial Emperor You Han reached the end of her sentence, her voice turned cold right away.
At the same time, a sharp ray gleamed deep in her eyes.
“The Hidden Fog Martial Competition will start in another ten days… and they’re actually not back yet.” Frowning, Xu Rong asked, “Master, should I go look for them?”
“Go.” Martial Emperor You Han nodded.
Immediately, Xu Rong proceeded to leave. As though she had transformed into lightning, she disappeared before the eyes of Martial Emperor You Han after burying herself in the fog not far away.
Seven days later, at the mansion that the Ling Xuan Peak people were staying.
“Why isn’t Brother Ling Tian back yet? There’re only three days left before the Hidden Fog Martial Competition officially starts.” Yang Hui, Martial Emperor Ling Xuan, who found out that Duan Ling Tian was still not back yet frowned slightly. “I wonder where he’s gone. Had I known about this earlier, I should’ve asked where he was heading to when he left after he took that dragon tendon. Now, just great! I can’t find him at all.” Yang Hui felt helpless.
“Master, there are three days more… Junior Uncle Duan will definitely be back,” Zhou Di reassured from behind Yang Hui.
After knowing that Duan Ling Tian had severely injured and defeated Dong Hu from Qiu Li Mountain in just one blow, Zhou Di, who was the Martial Emperor’s first direct disciple under Yang Hui’s command, had another new perspective of him.
At the same time, since his master had called Duan Ling Tian “brother”, he viewed Duan Ling Tian as his Senior Uncle.
“Hopefully.” Upon hearing Zhou Di’s reassurance, Yang Hui nodded.
Another two days had gone by.
Tomorrow would be when the Hidden Fog Martial Competition by the Hidden Fog Island started.
Whoosh! Whoosh! Whoosh!
Three swift figures swept out from the northeast of the Hidden Fog Island and not long after that, they arrived at the southern island and continued to head toward a particular direction at a breakneck speed.
Soon, three people appeared before a spacious mansion.
“Junior Uncle Duan, you’re finally back!” The moment the three of them had just stabilized themselves, a voice resonated not far away. It was a voice that was filled with an inexplicable sense of excitement.
“Junior Uncle?” At once, among the trio, the two ultimately beautiful women turned around to stare at the handsome young man standing in the middle with a confused look on their faces.
“Zhou Di?” The handsome young man who was dressed in purple looked at the person who was walking towards them.
