Translator: EndlessFantasy Translation Editor: EndlessFantasy Translation
“With your ability, it’s not difficult for you to kill Feng Zhu. I’ll give you a chance since you showed him mercy earlier…” The First Island Master of Coral Island said slowly. He looked at Duan Ling Tian before he paused mid-sentence.
He resembled a Judge of Death now. It was as though he was looking at someone whose life or death depended on his decision.
Duan Ling Tian grinned inwardly when he heard the First Island Master of Coral Island’s words.
He did not use his full strength in the beginning because he wanted to spar with a Dao Cultivator. It was not because he was trying to show mercy.
If it was not for Duan Ling Tuan’s curiosity, Luo Feng Zhu would have died earlier.
Luo Feng Zhu was undoubtedly powerful since his strength was on par with Martial Emperor You Han. However, Duan Long Tian had killed her without much effort. Naturally, it would be easy for him to kill Luo Feng Zhu, this Coral Island’s disciple if he had used his full strength.
Their fight earlier was nothing more than Duan Ling Tian trying to understand the Dao Cultivators’ Dao methods. That was why he was not in a rush to use his full strength.
He had only used his full strength when he shot the last arrow from the sky.
He had unleashed all his strength when he cast Aerolite Strike, effectively crushing the defensive Dao method Luo Feng Zhu had cast. He was so close to killing him.
However, the First Island Master of Coral Island had appeared during the critical moment and saved him.
“You! Kill yourself,” the First Island Master of Coral Island began to speak again, “I’ll leave your corpse intact if you do that. However, it won’t be intact if you wait for me to attack!”
As it turned out, the chance he had mentioned earlier was letting Duan Ling Tian commit suicide.
As soon as the First Island Master of Coral Island was done speaking, apart from Han Xue Nai and the three fellows, Ke’er, Li Fei, and the people from Hidden Fog Island’s expressions changed drastically.
Everyone who was close to Duan Ling Tian had a terrible expression on their faces at this moment.
“Kill myself?” Duan Ling Tian was stunned initially when he heard the First Island Master of Coral Island’s words. However, he could not help but smile widely after a while.
“Why are you smiling?” The First Island Master of Coral Island’s expression turned solemn as the killing intent in his eyes intensified. The robe on his body fluttered even though there was no wind. He appeared as though he would attack at any given time.
“I’m smiling at how naive you are! You stopped me from killing Luo Zhu Feng who ranked No.1 in the Coral Martial Competition… What makes you think that Island Master Tang won’t attack if you try to kill me, the No.1 in Hidden Fog Martial Competition?”
Duan Ling Tian looked at the First Island Master of Coral Island as though he was an idiot.
Among those who came to Half Moon Island, the three individuals who ranked No.1 in the three Overseas Saint Islands’ martial competitions undoubtedly had the highest chance of being selected as the direct disciple of Di Yong the Island Master of Half Moon Island.
Duan Ling Tian was one of them.
The three Overseas Saint Islands had sacrificed many Saint Stones to look for the most suitable direct disciple for Di Yong the Island Master of Half Moon Island.
Duan Ling Tian did not believe the three Overseas Saint Islands would not get anything in return for their hard work.
“Tang Zhen?” The First Island Master of Coral Island frowned. He suddenly recalled he was at the residence where the people from Hidden Fog Island were staying.
His eyes gleamed coldly.
He had made up his mind. He would kill Duan Ling Tian before the Island Master of Hidden Fog Island showed up.
At the moment when the First Island Master of Coral Island made up his mind, a gust of wind blew past and revealed a silhouette of an old person standing in front of Duan Ling Tian.
“Liu Zhong!” The person who had just appeared was Tang Zhen the Island Master of Hidden Fog Island. He glared coldly at Liu Zhong the First Island Master of Coral Island as soon as he arrived.
Liu Zhong’s face turned solemn the instant he saw Tang Zhen.
He knew it was impossible for him to kill Duan Ling Tian now that Tang Zhen had shown up.
“Hmph!” Liu Zhong scoffed and gestured to Luo Feng Zhu and Lin Tai. “Let’s go!”
Luo Feng Zhu and Lin Tai followed him when he spoke, preparing to take their leave.
Tang Zhen said nothing from the beginning until the end.
He only came to protect Duan Ling Tian. Since Duan Ling Tian was fine now, he did not want to start a conflict with Liu Zhong… Their strength was similar. It would be a lose-lose situation for them if a conflict arose between them.
“Stop right there!” Although Tang Zhen was willing to let Liu Zhong leave, somebody was unwilling.
When the cold voice reverberated in the air, Liu Zhong who was leaving with Luo Feng Zhu and Lin Tai stopped moving. The three of them turned around at the same time and looked at the source of the voice.
It was a young girl dressed in yellow. She looked like she was fifteen or sixteen years old.
“Xue Nai?” Duan Ling Tian looked at Han Xue Nai and said through Voice Transmission, “Xue Nai, let him go… I’m afraid his ability is on par with Tang Zhen. You might not be a match for him if he has cultivated Saint Grade Martial Tactic.”
Although he wanted to tear Liu Zhong into a million pieces, he knew he did not have the ability to do so now.
He would take whatever happened today to heart.
He would definitely teach Liu Zhong a lesson in the future when his ability surpassed Liu Zhong.
One should bide one’s time and wait for the right opportunity to seek revenge!
That was how he remained calm.
Han Xue Nai did not respond to Duan Ling Tian. Instead, she walked slowly in the air and looked at Liu Zhong and the other two.
“Little girl, don’t think that you can do whatever you want just because Tang Zhen has your back… If you provoke me, even Tang Zhen won’t be able to protect you!” Liu Zhong said in his deep voice as he looked at Han Xue Nai. The tone of his voice turned colder.
Tang Zhen’s face turned solemn as he glared at Liu Zhong. Han Xue Nai glanced at Liu Zhong and said coldly, “You’re thinking too much… I don’t need anyone at my back.”
“Don’t need anyone at your back?” Liu Zhong was stunned before he smirked. “I’m curious… where does your confidence come from? You even have the guts to provoke me.”
“I’ll give you a chance… Kill yourself. Otherwise, you’ll die without an intact corpse!” Han Xue Nai slowly repeated the words he had said to Duan Ling Tian back at him. It was obvious she was standing up for Duan Ling Tian.
“You want me to kill myself? Otherwise, I won’t have an intact corpse?” Liu Zhong was stunned when he heard Han Xue Nai’s words. However, he could not help but laugh after that.
Even Luo Feng Zhu and Lin Tai who followed behind Liu Zhong looked at Han Xue Nai with a ridiculing gaze. They thought Han Xue Nai had gone insane.
In their opinion, only lunatics would say something like that to the First Island Master of Coral Island.
When Ke’er, Li Fei, Martial Emperor Qing Xuan, and the others heard Han Xue Nai’s words, they thought she was just trying to goad him. Duan Ling Tian was the only exception.
They did not think Han Xue Nai possessed the capability to rip Liu Zhong into pieces. They thought she had only said that to stand up for Duan Ling Tian.
Even Tang Zhen the First Island Master of Hidden Fog Island thought the same.
“I’ll give you the span of three breaths starting from now… Either kill yourself, or you’ll die without an intact corpse!” Han Xue Nai proceeded to speak. Her voice was even colder than before.
“The span of three breaths? Great. I’m left with two breaths now… I, Liu Zhong, would love to see how a little girl like you are going to rip me into pieces!” Liu Zhong’s eyes contained disdain when he looked at Han Xue Nai.
In his opinion, Han Xue Nai was just a rude and naive little girl. She was no threat to him.
“One more breath left.” Another breath passed as Liu Zhong reminded Han Xue of it. There was a hint of mockery in his eyes. He was waiting for her to embarrass herself after a breath.
“You’re in way over your head!” Lin Tai who stood behind Liu Zhong mocked.
“Time’s up,” Han Xue Nai finally spoke. To the rest, she sounded normal. However, her voice was like the sound of death to Duan Ling Tian.
Duan Ling Tian knew Han Xue Nai very well.
She would not have said something like that unless she was fully confident of it.
‘This Liu Zhong is going to die.” Although he had no idea why Han Xue Nai was so confident, he did not doubt her words at all.
If she wanted Liu Zhong dead, it was impossible for Liu Zhong to live.
Soon after, Duan Ling Tian received his answer.
When Han Xue Nai spoke, she lifted her arm and something came out of it. Upon closer inspection, one would see that it was a piece of paper. The paper was yellow with scribbles on it.
“Dao Talisman!” Duan Ling Tian’s eyes widened, and his face revealed a shocked expression when he saw the familiar yellow paper and scribbles.
“Appear!” Han Xue Nai said in her deep voice when Duan Ling Tian was still in shock. Although her voice was soft, everyone present heard her.
Subsequently, what they saw was something that they would never forget for the rest of their lives.
When Han Xue Nai spoke, the yellow paper with scribbles on it turned into powder.
At the same time, Liu Zhong’s body exploded. His flesh had completely scattered, not a complete piece of his body could be found.
Before his body exploded, everyone had seen the scornful smile on his face. He had been smiling when he exploded.
“First Island Master!”
Bloody flesh was scattered everywhere and splashed onto Luo Feng Zhu and Lin Tai’s faces since they were standing closest to Liu Zhong. However, they seemed numb as they only looked dumbstruck after a bout of loud screaming.
They were completely shocked by this turn of events.
Soon after, Han Xue Nai moved again. She lifted her arm to freeze the air. She froze the scattered bloody flesh into ice sculptures before she crushed them into powder, and it disappeared from this world.
It was completely silent.
Apart from the three little fellows, everyone, including Tang Zhen the First Island Master of Hidden Fog Island, looked at the yellow-clad young girl in shock.
At this moment, they all felt a chill that rose from their feet to their heads.
‘It’s a Dao Talisman! Although it’s different from the three Dao Talismans my cheapskate father left me, the one that Xue Nai just used is indeed a Dao Talisman.’ Duan Ling Tian finally found out why Han Xue Nai was so confident.
It was because she had a Dao Talisman on her.
With the Dao Talisman, Xue Nai killed Liu Zhong in just a blink of an eye. She killed the high and mighty First Island Master of Coral Island whose ability was as powerful as Tang Zhen the First Island Master of Hidden Fog Island.
