Translator: EndlessFantasy Translation Editor: EndlessFantasy Translation
Accompanying the thunderous bellow was an old man who was dressed in a silver robe. His eyes were awe-majestic.
Right at that moment, killing intent was clearly written all over his face.
The moment the old man appeared, everyone could smell the gunpowder in the air immediately.
When the group of core disciples and inner island disciples of the Hidden Fog Island saw the silver-robed man, they could not help but exclaim in low voices, “Second Island Master!”
The Second Island Master!
The Second Island Master of the Hidden Fog Island!
At once, the others from the Hidden Fog Island and everyone from the Cloud Continent instantly learned the identity of the newcomer.
It was Chen Bei, the Second Island Master of the Hidden Fog Island, who was also the father of Chen Zhi, the core disciple of the Hidden Fog Island who was killed not long ago.
The moment they thought of Chen Zhi, many gazes instantly landed on Duan Ling Tian quietly as he was the one who had killed him.
“You killed my son?” As the Second Island Master of the Hidden Fog Island, Chen Bei’s observation skills were deadly accurate. In just the blink of an eye, following the gaze of the crowd, he noticed Duan Ling Tian.
As he looked at the supposed murderer, his eyes were filled with an icy killing intent.
Duan Ling Tian, on the other hand, appeared normal with a completely calm expression as though he was not surprised at all.
The group of people from Ling Xuan Peak who was led by Yang Hui, however, turned pale one by one.
Even Ke’er and Li Fei could not help but be drenched in cold sweat for Duan Ling Tian’s sake.
They were both certain that Chen Bei was resolved to die in his attempt to kill his son’s murderer.
In the face of an infuriated Chen Bei, Duan Ling Tian replied nonchalantly with a calm look, “He wanted to kill me, so don’t tell me that I can’t kill him!”
“When my son wanted to kill you, the wisest choice was to stretch your neck out for his sword… Then, only you would’ve died! Unfortunately, you’ve made the most foolish decision ever! You killed my son and I’ll annihilate your entire sect!” Chen Bei snarled coldly, “After killing you, I’ll kill your family and even all of your friends!”
The moment Chen Bei’s words left his mouth, the entire scene broke into an uproar.
Even the group of Hidden Fog Island people felt that Chen Bei was being ridiculous.
Because Chen Bei’s son wanted to kill that person, that person could only stretch out his neck for his son to kill?
What kind of logic was that?
Duan Ling Tian’s face finally revealed some changes as it darkened slowly.
Right at that moment, he deeply understood that the phrase “the strong ones rule” did not only apply to the Cloud Continent.
Even after they had left the Cloud Continent and came to the Overseas Saint Island, the phrase still applied there.
Just as the murderous intent rose in Chen Bei’s eyes and his silver robe fluttered in the wind while he advanced towards Duan Ling Tian, the Third Island Master of the Hidden Fog Island took a stride forward and blocked Chen Bei’s pathway. “Second Island Master.”
Glaring coldly at the Third Island Master of the Hidden Fog Island in front, Chen Bei asked coldly, “Fang Wen, are you trying to stop me?”
Fang Wen was the name of the Third Island Master of the Hidden Fog Island.
Ignoring the chilling gleam in Chen Bei’s eyes, Fang Wen continued nonchalantly, “Second Island Master, I understand why you want to kill him, but I’ve got to remind you something. He’s the champion of the Hidden Fog Martial Competition this time! You should know what this signifies!”
“So what? I only know that he killed my son, so he needs to pay me back with his life! Right now, I’m not killing him under the identity of the Second Island Master of the Hidden Fog Island. Instead, I’m doing it as a father.” The chill in Chen Bei’s eyes gleamed even more intensely.
“I won’t let anything happen to him with me here.” Fang Wen shook his head.
“In that case, I’ll kill you together with him! Don’t think that I’ve no idea that when he killed my son, the reason you didn’t stop him is that you still haven’t let go of your past enmity!” The silver robe on Chen Bei’s body fluttered even more vigorously. The tension soared from his body and skyrocketed to the sky.
“What a joke! In the Hidden Fog Martial Competition, other than the battle of the top ten, life and death isn’t a concern at all! Your son Chen Zhi wasn’t the only one killed before the battle among the top ten took place. Chen Zhi was much weaker and now that he’s dead, what does that have to do with me?” Fang Wen smirked.
Just as Fang Wen’s words left his mouth, Chen Bei’s anger lost control and burst out right away.
The silver robe on his body flapped crazily as though silver flames lit up around his body. Tremendous energy proceeded to soar upwards as it emanated gusts of bloodcurdling aura.
The group of powerhouses from the Cloud Continent, other than Martial Emperor Qing Xuan and Demon Emperor Man Wu, turned pale right away.
They could clearly sense Chen Bei’s power.
“He must be on at least the Eighth Level Martial Emperor Stage,” Demon Emperor Man Wu thought to himself.
“If the Second Island Master of the Hidden Fog Island makes his move, Duan Ling Tian will definitely die… However, now that he’s here, it’s kinda different from what I expected. Yeah, with the Third Island Master of the Hidden Fog Island stopping him, he won’t kill Duan Ling Tian for the time being. In that case, let me do the honors then.” A greedy flame burned intensely deep in Martial Emperor You Han’s eyes.
She still had not forgotten about her target at all — the Spatial Ring in Duan Ling Tian’s hand.
“Right now, his Spatial Ring contains more treasures that the Rebirth Martial Emperor left behind during his second reincarnation… Just now, Martial Emperor Ling Xuan also gave the Spatial Ring containing the Saint Stones to him. That Spatial Ring has also been stored in his own Spatial Ring.” Perhaps, nobody else had noticed this, but Martial Emperor You Han who had been staring at Duan Ling Tian from the very beginning knew this clearly.
Originally, she had decided to wait until the crowd thinned down before she made her move to kill Duan Ling Tian and snatch the Spatial Ring off his hand.
However, now that the Second Island Master of the Hidden Fog Island was there, she had no choice but to bring her plan forward.
Right then, she was waiting for the two Island Masters to battle it out with each other. Once they did, all of the crowd’s attention would definitely be on them.
Then, she would kill Duan Ling Tian and take his Spatial Ring away.
The moment Martial Emperor You Han thought of this, she could not suppress her excitement.
“Chen Bei, do you really dare to attack? Don’t forget the purpose of this Hidden Fog Martial Competition today… If you destroy the plan, the Great Island Master will never let you go!” When Fang Wen saw how Chen Bei was starting to store his energy and was about to launch his attack, his face turned bitter right away.
Whoosh! Whoosh! Whoosh! Whoosh! Whoosh!
The moment Fang Wen’s words left his mouth, streaks of figures swept out and landed in front of Fang Wen, blocking Chen Wei’s path altogether.
This scene took everyone by surprise.
The group of people blocking Chen Bei’s pathway together with Fang Wen was none other than the group of elders from the Hidden Fog Island.
“Please think twice, Second Island Master,” they cautioned Chen Bei in unison. Their voices gathered together like thunder.
Just as many people were taken by bewilderment and confusion, Duan Ling Tian’s eyes narrowed without warning before he muttered to himself, “As I expected, the Hidden Fog Martial Competition isn’t as simple as it looks.”
Actually, long before he heard about the competition, he had already suspected this.
Casting aside the rewards given to the participants who ranked highly, even the rewards that the Hidden Fog Martial Competition gave to referrals was also more than enough to raise Duan Ling Tian’s suspicion.
“A Saint Stone could help a Martial Emperor raise his cultivation base, so one could easily imagine its level of preciousness. Yet, the Hidden Fog Island actually gives out the Saint Stones to lure the crowd of Martial Emperors and Demon Emperors of the Cloud Continent to bring people to join this Hidden Fog Martial Competition on the island. Who’d believe that the Hidden Fog Island has no motive after it has taken great pains to do all this?”
Duan Ling Tian could still remember the time when he was still at the Southern Outer Land of the Cloud Continent. He had once worked hard for a few years to join the Martial Competition of the Ten Dynasties and in the end, he finally obtained the honor of being the champion.
The Martial Competition of the Ten Dynasties was held by the Skywolf Fort of the northern desert and it used a huge number of Concept Fragments to lure the young powerhouses from the ten dynasties to join it.
The Skywolf Fort was willing to take our the Concept fragments to hold the Martial Competition of the Ten Dynasties because of the Martial Emperor’s secret treasure.
Had it not been for the Martial Emperor’s secret treasure, which hid the Profundity Fragments, the Skywolf Fort would not have held the Martial Competition of the Ten Dynasties at all.
Duan Ling Tian, who had been through this, would know that there was no free lunch in this world.
The Hidden Fog Island was like the Skywolf Fort last time and the Hidden Fog Martial Competition today was like the Martial Competition of the Ten Dynasties.
Just like the Skywolf Fort, the Hidden Fog Island must have some intention behind hosting the competition, thus he had not hesitated when he killed Chen Zhi.
Even when Chen Bei, the Second Island Master of the Hidden Fog Island, came to seek revenge from him, he was not surprised at all. He had already been anticipating such a challenge to take place.
However, he was not worried at all, for he knew that as long as he proved his own value in the Hidden Fog Martial Competition, he would no doubt be greatly regarded important by the Hidden Fog Island.
By that time, his value and worth would be great to them.
The Hidden Fog Island would never sacrifice him before they accomplished the purpose of holding the Hidden Fog Martial Competition.
Therefore, becoming the champion of the Hidden Fog Martial Competition with his own strength was the best way of proving his worth.
As a result, he was not worried that Chen Bei would kill him.
Of course, even if the Hidden Fog Island protected him due to some reason, he was prepared to leave quietly and break free from its restraint once the competition ended.
Somehow, he had no idea why, but he felt that the objective of the Hidden Fog Island was not as simple as Skywolf Fort’s purpose the last time.
He had a bad feeling that if he continued to stay on the Hidden Fog Island and just let them do whatever they liked with him, something terrible would definitely happen.
“Even if I leave the Hidden Fog Island and lose their protection, Chen Bei won’t necessarily be able to find me,” Duan Ling Tian thought to himself.
This was his plan from the very start, so he had no doubts at all when he killed Chen Zhi. He did not even have much emotional fluctuation.
He had already long prepared his escape route.
In the face of Fang Wen, the Third Island Master of the Hidden Fog Island, and the group of Hidden Fog Island’s elders who tried to stop him, Chen Bei narrowed his eyes and asked coldly, “Do all of you think that you can block me?”
Just as Chen Bei was about to make his move on Fang Wen and the rest of the people, a cold snort resonated all over the place and entered everybody’s ears, eliciting a sudden inexplicable shock in their hearts.
“That is…” Duan Ling Tian lifted his head slightly. When he saw who it was, his eyes narrowed as surprise crept upon his face.
