Translator: EndlessFantasy Translation Editor: EndlessFantasy Translation
“If I could meet the Great Sage Sun even just once in the future, I guess my life would be worth it then,” Duan Ling Tian mused.
Sun Wu Kong, The Great Sage and the Equal of Heaven was the most beloved character in ancient mythology in his past life.
“There might be a chance in the future,” Elder Huo replied, “But right now, you’re too far away from that level. Don’t think so much and just focus on your cultivation first.”
After Elder Huo finished his sentence, he no longer said anything and went to repair the Seven Treasures Exquisite Pagoda.
Duan Ling Tian nodded.
After turning the Seven Treasures Exquisite Pagoda smaller — as small as a baby’s fingernail — Duan Ling Tian casually tossed it into his ear and stuck it at the top of his ear canal.
In that case, no matter what he did, the Seven Treasures Exquisite Pagoda would not fall out easily.
He walked out of the room and saw the two girls chatting with each other idly. The moment the girls saw Duan Ling Tian appear, their eyes lit up right away.
“You scoundrel, you just came back and instantly went back to the room in such a haste. Did you experience some enlightenment and a breakthrough in your strength?” Li Fei asked curiously.
“Yes.” Duan Ling Tian nodded as he smiled. He did not tell them about the Seven Treasures Exquisite Pagoda for the time being as it would be too inconceivable for the two girls to understand.
It would be better if he slowly let them understand bit by bit in the future.
“Young Master, have you made a breakthrough to the Seventh Level Martial Emperor Stage?” A look of intense admiration could be seen on Ke’er’s beautiful, delicate face.
“Yes.” Duan Ling Tian nodded again. He did not tell them that he had made a breakthrough to the Ninth Level Martial Emperor Stage because if he did, the two girls would most likely be terrified to death.
After he had accompanied the two girls for a long time, he finally bade them goodbye. “I’ll go look for the three Vice Island Masters of Half Moon Island first.”
The moment his words left his mouth, he immediately left.
It was a coincidence that the three Vice Island Masters of Half Moon Island were gathered together.
“Three Vice Island Masters.” The moment Duan Ling Tian appeared, he instantly took the initiative to greet the three of them.
“Island Master.” Although the three Vice Island Masters, including Xiao Kun, were unwilling to accept Duan Ling Tian as the new owner of Half Moon Island, because they were bound by their oath, they did not dare to ignore him.
However, when they greeted Duan Ling Tian, the new Island Master of the Hidden Fog Island, they did not add the word “Lord” in front, unlike how they would address Di Yong the last time. They used to call him “Lord Island Master” in a respectful manner.
“Hmph!” Duan Ling Tian snorted and cast a sharp glance at the three of them before saying in a deep voice, “It looks like the three of you don’t really respect me as the new Island Master…”
In the face of an enraged Duan Ling Tian, the three of them ignored him completely.
“I’ll give you one more chance! The three of you, join forces and fight with me. If you can block my three blows, I’ll automatically leave this position of mine as the Island Master of Half Moon Island!” Duan Ling Tian snapped, “In this case, all of you won’t be considered as going against your oath either.”
Xiao Kun and the others did not expect that Duan Ling Tian would throw such a challenge. They were taken aback at once. A glimpse of hope started to appear deep in their eyes.
If they could, of course, they would not be willing to bow to him.
“But if you three are defeated, I hope you’ll respect me as you would respect Di Yong,” Duan Ling Tian demanded.
“Sure.” Xiao Kun and the other two did not have any qualms with the condition. Right away, they agreed to it.
In their opinions, Duan Ling Tian was merely a young calf who was not afraid of tigers. Did he want to defeat them in three blows? What an idiotic dream!
They knew Duan Ling Tian’s strength.
Even though he was quite powerful, he was still a distance away from them.
“Hmph!” Seeing how Xiao Kun and the two others had agreed to him, Duan Ling Tian snorted and with a raise of his hand, the Royal Grade Spirit Archery Set appeared. With one hand holding onto the bow, his other hand gripped the arrow.
The moment the bowstring appeared, Duan Ling Tian flexed the bow and slid the arrow onto it before pulling the bowstring into the shape of a full moon and then letting go of the arrow in his hand.
At once, the arrow soared through the sky like a black lightning streak.
Body and Arrow Synchronization!
At the same time, Duan Ling Tian took a great leap and landed on the black lightning bolt lightly. Charging out along with the lightning bolt, his speed increased and soon he became a residual image in front of Xiao Kun and the two.
At that moment, the three of them turned grave.
Casting aside all the others, just the speed that Duan Ling Tian demonstrated alone was in no way inferior to theirs.
However, they still did not think that he would be able to defeat them.
Judging from the speed that he demonstrated, his strength was on par with any one of them at the most.
It was almost impossible for him to defeat them when they joined forces with one another, let alone defeat the three of them.
“Go!” After exchanging glances with each other, the trio rushed out and shot out to three different directions with a speed that was the same as the speed that Duan Ling Tian cast using his Body and Arrow Synchronization. Then, they charged towards him and surrounded him.
“This is just in time to test just how powerful my body is right now.” As the three men charged at him in fury, Duan Ling Tian’s face remained unchanged. A faint five-colored light shield appeared by his side and enveloped him in it.
If one noticed clearly, one would see that this five-colored light shield was actually formed by multiple five-colored divine dragons that were soaring quickly.
Nine Dragon’s Barrier!
The technique that Duan Ling Tian cast now was the Heaven Rank Advanced Defensive Martial Skill attached to the Nine Dragons War Sovereign Technique!
After the five-colored light shield rose, Duan Ling Tian came to a halt right away.
The arrow underneath his feet had also returned to his hand now.
“Die!” Seeing Duan Ling Tian come to a halt and set up a defensive light shield in an attempt to withstand their attacks, Xiao Kun and the two others smirked with a movement in their hand that remained the same speed as they charged out thunderously.
Boom! Boom! Boom! Boom! Boom!
Three lightning-like figures charged towards Duan Ling Tian from three different directions. Some were using punches while the other used his palm. As they pounced out, they set off a series of thunderous blasts.
In just the twinkling of an eye, punches and slaps landed on the five-colored light shield surrounding Duan Ling Tian’s body.
Boom! Boom! Boom! Boom! Boom!
As a series of thunderous explosions resonated, gushes of rolling impact waves were set off and the five-colored light shield proceeded to crumble underneath them.
At the same time, the trio’s attack also landed on Duan Ling Tian.
Boom! Boom! Boom!
Two punches and one palm landed on Duan Ling Tian as three stifling sounds reverberated in the air.
Duan Ling Tian, on the other hand, did not change his expression at all as he remained composed and collected.
“Is this the body that’s more powerful than the true form of the five-clawed divine dragon? The three of them are all at the peak of the Martial Emperor Stage and without any spirit weapon, their punches and palm attacks seemed to be scratching some itch for me when they landed on my body after having a part of it blocked by my defensive martial skill.” Duan Ling Tian’s heart skipped a beat. Only then did he realize just how terrifying the transformation that his body had undergone was.
Duan Ling Tian was very clear about his own strength.
The reason his speed was on par with Xiao Kun and the other two was that of the Body and Arrow Synchronization, the movement technique in the Saint Grade Martial Tactic, and the Colossal Aerolite Arrow that he cast.
His Body and Arrow Synchronization had now reached the Fundamental Awareness Stage.
As for his defense, for he did not cast the defense skill in the Saint Grade Martial Tactic. By right, he would not have been able to withstand the attack. However, right then, he had blocked them.
All of this was because his body’s defenses were strong.
Right then, his body was no longer comparable by the other ordinary human Martial Emperors. After he was reborn with the help from the Seven Treasures Exquisite Pagoda, his body was now even stronger than a five-clawed divine dragon according to Elder Huo.
In fact, the five-clawed divine dragon’s body was so powerful that it was already well-known in Dao Martial Saint Land.
In the entire Dao Martial Saint Land, there were only very few others who had a body that was as strong as the five-clawed divine dragon.
“H-How is this possible?!” After Xiao Kun and the two others noticed that their attacks were blocked by Duan Ling Tian’s body by force, horror dawned on them right away as they stared at him as if they had just seen a ghost.
Although the force of their attack was already blocked partially, the energy contained in it was still extremely bloodcurdling. At first, they thought that Duan Ling Tian would at least be severely injured if he did not die.
However, the outcome had totally exceeded their expectations. Duan Ling Tian was completely unharmed.
Was he still a freaking human?
Was there any human who had such a freaky body?
“It’s my turn now,” Duan Ling Tian announced indifferently. His tone was calm, but he managed to take Xiao Kun and the two others by shock.
When they finally returned to their senses, they noticed that Duan Ling Tian had already shot out an arrow which appeared like a lightning bolt, and he himself had already left along with that arrow before appearing in the distance in just the blink of an eye.
Upon seeing this, they breathed a sigh of relief.
However, soon, they saw that when Duan Ling Tian slipped his body to the side, he suddenly turned around without warning and the eyes that were looking at them had become extremely sharp. At the same time, he had raised the archery set in his hands.
“Sh*t!” Horror dawned on them right away. Each of them hastily took out their own spirit weapons.
They knew that Duan Ling Tian was going to make his attack now.
“First blow!” Just as the three had their spirit weapons in their hands and had no time to dodge yet, Duan Ling Tian’s calm voice already echoed in the air once again and entered their ears, sending chills all the way down their spines.
At the same time, the arrow in Duan Ling Tian’s hand shot out at a speed so fast that Xiao Kun and the two others could not react in time.
Two gushes of dazzling fresh blood splattered in the air. The shoulders of Xiao Kun and the other Vice Island Masters of Half Moon Island were stabbed, leaving only two horrendous bloody holes that continued to gush non-stop with fresh blood.
With just one shot of his arrow, he managed to injure two of them.
The two of them who were injured exchanged glances with each other and a bitter smile crept upon the corner of their mouths.
They were clear in their hearts that their opponent had already shown some mercy towards them. Otherwise, the arrow just now would not have pierced through their shoulders. Instead, it would have been their chests.
Just as the last Vice Island Master of Half Moon Island came to his senses and was about to flee, Duan Ling Tian announced once again before shooting out another arrow from his hand, “Second blow!”
Since his single arrow could injure the two of them, injuring just one of them was an even easier task for him.
In just the blink of an eye, the shoulder of the last Vice Island Master of Half Moon Island had also been pierced through as well.
He had defeated the three of them in just two blows.
With the help of the movement technique’s first stage — the Fundamental Awareness Stage — of the Saint Grade Martial Tactic that he cultivated, Duan Ling Tian’s speed was on par with the three of them.
Given the help of his powerful body, he could withstand the attacks from the three of them.
With the help of the offensive technique’s second stage — the Elementary Stage — of the Saint Grade Martial Tactic that he cultivated, the three of them could not withstand his attack at all.
“Lord Island Master!” Right at this moment, as Xiao Kun and the other two were consumed by bafflement. They were also sincerely convinced from their hearts, that Duan Ling Tian was the new Island Master of Half Moon Island.
They now acknowledged Duan Ling Tian from the bottom of their hearts.
