Chapter 1301: Innate Ability
Translator: EndlessFantasy Translation Editor: EndlessFantasy Translation
“What… What are you trying to do?!” Although Chen Zhi’s mouth was smashed into a bloody mess now, not being able to speak did not mean he could not use Voice Transmission.
While he was speaking to Duan Ling Tian through Voice Transmission, he had fear written all over his face.
How could he behave arrogantly earlier?
Duan Ling Tian did not speak. Instead, he responded to Chen Zhi with his action.
He swung four swords simultaneously. It was so fast that most of the people present only heard the fleeting sound of sword whistling.
Only a few of them heard the sound of all four swords whistling.
Pu! Pu! Pu! Pu! Pu!
Blood spurted from Chen Zhi’s body. Terrifying bloody wounds appeared on both of his arms and legs at the same time.
This scene caused chills to run up everyone’s spines.
Meanwhile, Chen Zhi’s devastating scream reverberated in the air over and over again.
However, his scream sounded strange since his mouth was destroyed.
One could imagine the pain he was going through from his shuddering and his terrified face.
The pain was unbearable.
Although he hated Duan Ling Tian, he was no longer glaring at him like before.
He was only left with one thought at the moment.
‘I don’t want to die!’
Chen Zhi was suffering from unimaginable pain. He looked at Duan Ling Tian and said through Voice Transmission, “I surrender… I surrender! I surrender!”
However, Duan Ling Tian did not seem to hear him as he lifted the sword in his hand slowly. There was a cold gleam in his emotionless eyes.
“Why isn’t Chen Zhi surrendering?” Many of the spectators were shocked.
The outcome was clear, but why was Chen Zhi not surrendering? Was he asking for death?
“That’s not right! Chen Zhi’s mouth is destroyed… It’s impossible even if he wants to surrender!”
“That’s right. Even if he surrenders to Duan Ling Tian through Voice Transmission, Duan Ling Tian can still kill him and pretend like he didn’t hear him.”
Many people reacted soon after.
At this moment, they came to a realization. “No wonder he destroyed Chen Zhi’s mouth… He didn’t want Chen Zhi to surrender.”
“He could’ve killed Chen Zhi in the beginning if he wanted to… It’s obvious that he wants to torture Chen Zhi slowly now and kill him later. He must be worried that Chen Zhi might surrender, that’s the reason why he destroyed his mouth.”
Many of them managed to figure it out.
They felt a chill from the bottom of their feet that rushed straight to their heads as they thought to this point.
There was fear on their faces and eyes when they looked at Duan Ling Tian again.
Their words entered Chen Zhi’s ears, causing him to regain his senses.
At this moment, Chen Zhi turned his head strenuously to look at the Third Island Master of Hidden Fog Island. He said through Voice Transmission while he endured the unimaginable pain, “Third Island Master, save me! Please save me!”
“I surrender! I surrender!” Chen Zhi continued to speak through Voice Transmission. His voice was laced with anxiety.
When Chen Zhi was calling out for help from the Third Island Master, a sword ray fell from the sky and sliced him into two.
The entire process was very neat.
Meanwhile, the sky above the vast ocean fell silent.
Although there was a crowd, it was as quiet as the still ocean.
The spectators regained their senses when Chen Zhi’s body that was sliced into two fell into the water.
Before that happened, Duan Ling Tian remembered to collect the rewards. He put away the Spatial Ring and Quasi Royal Grade Spirit Sword in Chen Zhi’s hand without leaving anything behind.
Chen Zhi must have possessed something good since he was the only son of the Second Island Master of Hidden Fog Island.
The Third Island Master looked deep into Duan Ling Tian’s eyes.
Although he did not plan to respond to Chen Zhi’s call of distress through Voice Transmission, the speed in which Duan Ling Tian killed Chen Zhi was faster than the time it took for him to react.
Even if he wanted to save Chen Zhi, which he did not want to, it was too late.
‘He’s really daring, he even dares to kill the Second Island Master’s only son.’ The Third Island Master was shocked as he studied Duan Ling Tian. Although he was shocked, he was a little happy because he had long wanted Chen Zhi to die.
He could not do anything to Chen Zhi due to the promise he made to the First Island Master back then.
Naturally, he was happy that somebody killed Chen Zhi now…
The young man, the Third Island Master’s grandson, revealed a charming smile on his face as he stood in the distance. His smile turned a little maniacal. “Chen Zhi’s dead, Chen Zhi’s dead… Chen Zhi’s finally dead! Cai’er, did you see that?”
Duan Ling Tian entered the top ten after killing Chen Zhi.
When Duan Ling Tian returned to the people from Ling Xuan Peak, he looked at the Third Island Master of Hidden Fog Island and asked, “Third Island Master, your Hidden Fog Island has a rule that says killing is allowed during the Hidden Fog Martial Competition… I know Chen Zhi is the Second Island Master’s only son. I presume there won’t be anyone trying to seek revenge from me due to his death?”
“Of course not.” The Third Island Master shook his head. “Life and death are meaningless in the Hidden Fog Martial Competition! Even if my grandchildren and my direct disciples were to die in the Hidden Fog Martial Competition, I won’t look for trouble with the person who killed them.”
“That’s great then.” Duan Ling Tian nodded lightly.
At that same time, an uproar erupted among the crowd as expected.
“He really killed Chen Zhi!”
“It’s true he’s allowed to kill Chen Zhi in Hidden Fog Martial Competition… However, even if the Second Island Master of Hidden Fog Island can’t kill him publicly, he’ll definitely kill him secretly to avenge his son.”
“This Duan Ling Tian has gone insane!”
Everyone looked at Duan Ling Tian one after another. There were shock and sympathy in those eyes.
In their opinion, the fact that Duan Ling Tian dared to kill the only son of the Second Island Master of Hidden Fog Island was akin to asking for death. It was impossible that Duan Ling Tian would live.
However, had Duan Ling Tian really gone insane?
Naturally, he had not.
‘There are so many people here… Even if that Second Island Master of Hidden Fog Island heard about this, it’ll definitely be difficult for him to attack me. I’ll leave with Ke’er and Little Fei’er after obtaining the ten Saint Stones.’
‘As long as I stay far away from this Hidden Fog Island, why should I be afraid of the Second Island Master of Hidden Fog Island?’ Duan Ling Tian made up his mind.
He was not a hasty person.
Since he decided to kill Chen Zhi, he already had a plan.
Naturally, this was just his current plan.
‘I can’t believe he really killed Chen Zhi… In that case, it’s impossible for that Hidden Fog Island’s powerhouse to help him. I’ll follow him and kill him after the Hidden Fog Martial Competition ends.’ A cold gleam flashed in Martial Emperor You Han’s eyes. ‘And I’ll also kill that two bitches around him!’
“Could that fellow be a Demon Emperor? This doesn’t seem like something a timid human Martial Emperor is capable of doing,” Demon Emperor Man Wu speculated, shocked.
Demon Emperors were demons.
A demon’s nature was that of a demon beast.
Compared to humans, demon beasts had an irascible temper. Although they possessed intelligence that was on par with humans, their temper was not as restrained as humans.
This was why Demon Emperor Man Wu came to his conclusion.
“He’s a Martial Emperor,” Martial Emperor Qing Xuan said calmly at this moment.
“He’s a human?” Demon Emperor Man Wu was shocked.
“He’s not just a human… He’s an extraordinarily talented human!” Martial Emperor Qing Xuan said.
“Qing Xuan, do you know him?” Demon Emperor Man Wu was stunned.
Martial Emperor Qing Xuan smiled. He did not respond to Demon Emperor Man Wu.
‘Damn it! How did this Duan Ling Tian become so powerful?” Meanwhile, Zhou Yi who was at Thundercloud Peak’s side had an extremely terrible expression on his face. ‘With his ability, it’s impossible for me to pressure him into telling me about the secrets of the mysterious tablet…’
‘I can get Martial Emperor Lei Ming to help me in other matters… But this is about the mysterious tablet, it’s impossible to ask for Martial Emperor Lei Ming’s help.’ Zhou Yi knew that very well.
If Martial Emperor Lei Ming found out about the amazing things the mysterious tablet in his hand was capable of, he would definitely take it for himself.
That was something he did not want to see happening.
‘Oh, well… I’ll have to give up.’ Zhou Yi made a hard decision.
His current situation was like a beggar who had not eaten for days and had suddenly found a fragrant roasted chicken out of nowhere. However, just as he was about to eat the roasted chicken, somebody told him the roasted chicken was poisoned. He would die if he ate it. Naturally, he would have to give up eating it.
“Brother Ling Tian, you are too impulsive,” Yang Hui said with a forced smile.
“Nobody’s allowed to humiliate my women!” Duan Ling Tian said calmly as his eyes gleamed. The tone in his voice brooked no argument.
Ke’er and Li Fei’s beautiful eyes were gentle like flowing water when they heard what Duan Ling Tian said as they stood next to him.
They leaned on Duan Ling Tian’s sides and held his arms.
They were willing to be with their man whether in life or in death!
“The Hidden Fog Martial Competition will resume…” At this moment, the voice of the Third Island Master of Hidden Fog Island resounded in the air. He announced that the Hidden Fog Martial Competition would carry on.
Perhaps the gory scene earlier had affected the people, the participants in the next match did not hold back as they attacked at full strength and used killer moves as soon as the match began.
Soon after, a few Martial Emperor powerhouses had fallen.
“Innate ability!” Someone suddenly shouted and woke Duan Ling Tian who was resting with his eyes closed.
When Duan Ling Tian opened his eyes, he saw a black lotus shooting out from between a black-clad young man’s eyebrows. It was headed toward his opponent.
The black lotus did not stop spinning as it shot out.
Facing the ferocious black lotus, a blue-clad middle-aged man, the black-clad young man’s opponent, exerted his energy to block it.
However, the defensive shield formed from his energy could not block the black lotus at all.
The black lotus pierced through the defensive shield without any resistance.
Although the defensive shield remained, the black lotus pierced through the blue-clad middle-aged man’s body. He shook from the attack even though there were no apparent wounds on his body.
In the next second, he fell silently with his eyes open.
‘It’s a Soul Attack innate ability!’ Duan Ling Tian’s heart jolted.
The black lotus was the black-clad young man’s innate ability that was mobilized with his Spiritual Energy. It was a Spiritual Energy Attack, and it was also a Soul Attack.
It was difficult for an ordinary Martial Emperor powerhouse to attack another Martial Emperor powerhouse with Soul Attack unless one specially cultivated Soul Attack.
Meanwhile, people who possessed Soul Attack innate ability were different as their own Spiritual Energies were used as tools to mobilize their innate ability.
