Chapter 1314: The Leading Island of the Four Great Overseas Saint Islands
Translator: EndlessFantasy Translation Editor: EndlessFantasy Translation
Feng Qing Yang was the person who had left the word ‘sword’ behind at Duan Ling Tian’s hometown back then. He called himself a Sword Saint.
The word had benefitted Duan Ling Tian by heaps.
One could say that the Sword Profundity he comprehended could be credited to Feng Qing Yang.
If Feng Qing Yang’s message was true, he was indeed the top person in Dao Martial Saint Land.
“Three continents? One’s ruled by Martial Cultivators, while another’s ruled by Dao Cultivators and the last one’s ruled by Martial Cultivators and Dao Cultivators together?” At that moment, the crowd learned an astounding truth from the Third Island Master of the Hidden Fog Island, Fang Wen.
Apart from the people from the Cloud Continent, even the Hidden Fog Island disciples revealed shock on their faces.
“I didn’t know that there are two other continents apart from our Cloud Continent! And the two continents have Martial Cultivators just like we do. Hmm, and there’s something called ‘Dao Cultivators’!” Many of them were surprised.
However, Fang Wen was not done speaking just yet. “At the same time as the Hidden Fog Martial Competition took place here on the Hidden Fog Island, the other two Overseas Saint Islands held similar martial competitions too. They also chose thirty most outstanding participants from their own martial competitions.”
“The two Overseas Saint Islands are neighbors to the other two continents, so it’s only natural that the sixty participants that they chose came from those continents. The thirty participants chosen by our Hidden Fog Island will go to Half Moon Island with them,” Fang Wen proceeded.
“Half Moon Island?” Many of the Martial Emperor’s disciples from the Cloud Continent had doubts on their faces.
“Half Moon Island is one of the Four Great Overseas Saint Islands. It’s located in the middle of the three Overseas Saint Islands including our Hidden Fog Island and it’s the leading island of the Four Great Overseas Saint Islands.”
“The Island Master of Half Moon Island is Master Di Yong. He’s the Overseas Saint Islands’ No. 1 powerhouse!” Fang Wen looked respectful as he spoke.
The Island Master of Half Moon Island, Di Yong.
The Overseas Saint Islands’ No. 1 powerhouse?
As Fang Wen introduced him, apart from those who already knew about this, the rest were astounded.
“A powerhouse called Di Yong, who is also the Island Master of Half Moon Island, is the Overseas Saint Islands’ No.1 powerhouse?” Duan Ling Tian was shocked as well. “The First Island Master of the Hidden Fog Island seems to be already at the peak of the Martial Emperor Stage.
“Since that Island Master of Half Moon Island is known as the Overseas Saint Islands’ No.1 powerhouse, doesn’t that mean he’s even more powerful than the First Island Master of the Hidden Fog Island who’s at the peak of the Martial Emperor Stage?”
‘He’s even more powerful than someone on the peak of the Martial Emperor Stage? If he ends up in Dao Martial Saint Land, that would mean he’s even more powerful than anyone at the peak of the Innate Stage… The stage after Innate Stage would be the Mortal Shedding Stage.” Duan Ling Tian looked serious as he weighed the facts.
Fang Wen soon revealed the reason behind the Hidden Fog Martial Competition. “The reason why our Hidden Fog Island held the Hidden Fog Martial Competition and the other two Overseas Saint Islands hosted the martial competitions… It’s for the Island Master of the Half Moon Island, Master Di Yong.”
Master Di Yong wanted to recruit the most outstanding direct disciple. It was said that the chosen direct disciple would be the descendant of the Island Master of the Half Moon Island.
“Whoa!” An uproar broke out within the crowd after Fang Wen revealed the reason.
Half Moon Island was the leading island of the Four Great Overseas Saint Islands and was revered by the other three Overseas Saint Islands. Now, it appeared that such a mighty Island Master was eager to recruit a direct disciple as his descendant.
As opposed to the excitement from the rest of the people, Duan Ling Tian could not help but frown.
“The Island Master of the Half Moon Island is a little strange… Since he’s been managing Half Moon Island for years, wouldn’t he already have outstanding direct disciples under him? Moreover, he’s getting the direct disciple that he’s going to recruit to be his descendant to look after the entire Half Moon Island?” Compared to the rest, Duan Ling Tian was calm as he was doing a lot of thinking.
He found many loopholes in the information that Fang Wen had provided so far which he found illogical. Therefore, he tried a different perspective.
If he were to put himself in the shoes of the Island Master of Half Moon Island, it was impossible to get a new disciple to be the descendant.
Years of observation were needed to pick a suitable descendant. It only made sense for the Island Master to get to know a person deep down so that he could hand over the entire Half Moon Island to the descendant.
“The Island Master’s too hasty… It only hints that there’s something more complicated behind it,” Duan Ling Tian said to Han Xue Nai who was next to him through Voice Transmission while shooting her a dubious look.
“No matter what he’s up to… I’m quite interested,” Han Xue Nai replied.
Hearing Han Xue Nai’s casual reply through Voice Transmission, Duan Ling Tian’s lips twitched indistinctly. This Little Devil wanted to see the world burn!
“Among the ninety people chosen from the three Overseas Saint Islands… Only one person will become Master Di Yong’s direct disciple and the descendant of Half Moon Island,” Fang Wen declared, “However, although those who rank among the best won’t be Master Di Yong’s direct disciple, you’ll be granted attractive awards.”
“Those of you among the thirty people that we’ve chosen from the Hidden Fog Martial Competition who are willing to head to Half Moon Island can stay… Those who are don’t want to join may leave now. We won’t force you to stay,” Fang Wen looked around and told the crowd at this point.
However, apart from Zhou Yi who was absent, none of them left.
“Very good.” Fang Wen nodded in satisfaction and subsequently said, “Since a person’s absent and we have a vacant spot, I’ll pick someone else now.”
As Han Xue Nai was interested in the last spot, she clinched the spot like a piece of cake.
She won the spot smoothly after directly fighting another two participants who ranked in the top thirty in the Hidden Fog Martial Competition and defeated them in one blow.
From the beginning until the end, Fang Wen did not even manage to explain how he was going to pick the last person for the vacant spot.
“Including our Hidden Fog Island, the ninety participants from the three Overseas Saint Islands must have their age verified through the Age Measuring Pearl. Only participants under seventy are eligible to participate. You must fulfill this condition whether you’re a Martial Emperor or a Demon Emperor,” Fang Wen looked at Han Xue Nai as he explained.
“Seventy?” Han Xue Nai scoffed softly upon hearing what he said. “Do you think I’m that old?”
“How dare you!?” As soon as Han Xue Nai spoke, Leng Yun who stood behind Fang Wen glared at her with a dangerous gleam in her eyes. Her solemn face was getting more and more terrifying now.
“Hmph!” Han Xue Nai jeered softly as Leng Yun shot out from where she was like an arrow leaving its bow.
Red roses scattered all over the sky as she flew out.
Upon closer inspection, the red roses were actually fresh blood spurting continuously from Leng Yun’s mouth.
“That’s insanely fast!” Fang Wen’s pupils shrunk. He was shocked recalling Han Xue Nai’s attack as she charged at Leng Yun a second ago. “Ability-wise, I’m afraid she’s nothing lesser than that Duan Ling Tian!”
One would wonder what kind of expression would Fang Wen have if he found out that Han Xue had actually Nai held back when she attacked earlier.
Apart from Duan Ling Tian and the team, Martial Emperor Qing Xuan was the only one who did not show any expression towards Han Xue Nai’s lightning speed attack.
Nobody noticed the respect in Martial Emperor Qing Xuan’s eyes when he looked at Han Xue Nai. The respect came from his heart; he was not faking it.
“Little girl, don’t you think you’re crossing the line?” Fang Wen said in his deep voice.
No matter what, Leng Yun was his direct disciple after all.
As her master, it would be wrong for him to not stand up for his direct disciple seeing her being injured so badly.
Fang Wen took a step forward while his majestic aura swept out as he spoke in an attempt to pressure Han Xue Nai.
However, she did not seem to notice his threat. She turned around and returned to Duan Ling Tian’s side, ignoring Fang Wen. She said while snickering, “Brother Ling Tian, I’ll be going to the competition to fight for a place as that the Island Master of the Half Moon Island’s direct disciple with you.”
In reality, Han Xue Nai was not interested in being a direct disciple. She just thought that it would be fun to take the deceased Zhou Yi’s spot.
“You…” Fang Wen glared angrily at Han Xue Nai as his face turned pale. Eventually, he did not do anything because he needed to take care of the Hidden Fog Island’s reputation because so many people were watching.
He was the Third Island Master of the Hidden Fog Island after all.
“Go and get ready. We’ll depart to Half Moon Island in a month!” Fang Wen commanded and left with his people.
The Hidden Fog Island disciples, or to be exact, the Hidden Fog Island core disciples left one after another.
At that moment, only the people from the Cloud Continent including Duan Ling Tian were left.
Naturally, Han Xue Nai was not considered as someone from the Cloud Continent.
Not only was she not from the Cloud Continent, but she was also not from the Overseas Saint Island either.
Soon, somebody could not help but gush, “The other two continents… Dao Cultivators? This is so exciting!”
“According to what the Third Island Master said earlier… Dao Cultivators have a completely different technique from Martial Cultivators. They can fight by drawing upon Heaven and Earth Energy. It’s mind-blowing!” Another person said.
At that moment, many of them showed excitement on their faces, including Duan Ling Tian.
“It’s not my first time hearing about Dao Cultivators. Although I’ve used a Dao Talisman drawn by a Saint Rudiment Stage Dao Cultivator, I’ve never seen any Dao Cultivators fight.” Duan Ling Tian was excited to see how Dao Cultivators fight and how it was different from Martial Cultivators like them.
The people from the Cloud Continent then left one after another. However, they stole a glance at Han Xue Nai before leaving. Her actions were simply too shocking.
Leng Yun was Fang Wen’s direct disciple and had ranked the top three in the Hidden Fog Martial Competition ten days ago. However, she was shot out by a casual attack performed by a young girl in yellow who looked only fifteen or sixteen years of age.
It was too mind-blowing.
Not long later, apart from Duan Ling Tian and the team, Martial Emperor Qing Xuan was the only person from the Cloud Continent who stayed after commanding his disciples to leave.
At that moment, Han Xue Nai greeted Martial Emperor Qing Xuan with a smile, “It’s been a while, Little Xuan!”
