Translator: EndlessFantasy Translation Editor: EndlessFantasy Translation
As he continued to head forward, Duan Ling Tian could feel that the gravitational pull was getting stronger.
“Huh?” Suddenly, as though he noticed something, Duan Ling Tian turned his head without warning and looked to his right. A black dot suddenly appeared in the boundless ocean.
“It’s so far away, but I can still see it. It should be either a large island or a continent.” Upon seeing the black dot, Duan Ling Tian became slightly excited.
Be it a large island or a continent, either might have people on them.
The moment Duan Ling Tian knew that he could see a person and ask his whereabouts now, he straightaway flew towards that black dot without any hesitation at a speed that accelerated as time went by.
“It’s a large island!” When he got nearer to it, he could finally clearly see that it was a massive island. “I’m sure there must be human occupants on such a huge island.”
The moment this thought was formed in his mind, he was consumed with emotions right away.
A loud blast resonated and interrupted Duan Ling Tian’s emotions, causing him to change in expression.
He saw a gigantic creature suddenly leap out of the ocean surface. As it set off a tempestuous wave, it soared up to the sky and blocked his way.
This was a completely black wild beast that was covered fully in scales. Its glossy dark green eyes were staring fixedly at Duan Ling Tian and black saliva was drooling from the corner of its mouth.
Although this wild beast kind of look like a pangolin, it was way bigger than one. It seemed like a little hill hovering right there.
“I just so happened to want to look for a person to test my skill and you’ve already come knocking on the door. What a way to help relieve my work!” Duan Ling Tian’s face eased up as he squinted.
He could see that with the speed that this pangolin demonstrated just now, it was already enough to prove the level its strength was at. It was almost on par with Duan Ling Tian who had yet to use his True Energy.
“It’s a wild beast on the Early Mortal Shedding Stage.”
Duan Ling Tian had learned some basic things about the devil beasts from Xue Nai, so he was not surprised to come across one on his journey.
After glaring at Duan Ling Tian for a while, a glimpse flashed across the wild beast’s glossy dark green eyes. As it let out a cry, it charged towards Duan Ling Tian at a speed that was so fast as though it had transformed to become a bolt of lightning.
“Come at me!” In the face of the wild beast, Duan Ling Tian did not seem to fear it at all. With a stride forward, he went head-on with it.
However, he was only maintaining his flying using his True Energy. He was not planning to it to defeat his enemy at all. In the face of the wild beast, all of the muscles on his body swelled up as explosive energy gushed into his punches that swept out right away.
The wild beast arrived before him in just the blink of an eye. Duan Ling Tian punched his head and along with the resonation of a loud thud, he rebounded back with the force.
As for the wild beast, it was sent flying several dozen meters before finally came to a halt.
“What strong defense! No wonder Xue Nai said that a wild beast’s defense could be compared to half of the dragon clan,” Duan Ling Tian mused.
“But what a pity that you came across me. My body has been refined by the Seven Treasures Exquisite Pagoda’s energy before, so I’m much stronger than the Five-Clawed Divine Dragon!” In the face of the wild beast who cried out peculiarly and charged toward him again, Duan Ling Tian’s gaze turned colder as he pounced forward as though he was a cannonball.
He shot out and went head-on with the wild beast.
Boom! Boom! Boom! Boom! Boom!
In the face of the True Energy waves that spewed out of the wild beast’s mouth continuously, Duan Ling Tian punched his fist out continuously, shattering the True Energy waves into bits. Every time when he shattered the True Energy waves, he was thoroughly soaked in a hearty and satisfied feeling.
Roar! The wild beast yelled peculiarly again in a sharp voice. There seemed to be some changes in the tone compared to the one before.
“Huh?” The peculiar cry that he released sent uneasiness down Duan Ling Tian’s spine right away.
Soon, Duan Ling Tian began to understand why he felt so uneasy. The wild beast was calling for its friends.
The ocean surface surrounding them started to become turbulent as raging waves started to be set off. Every time the waves surged up, it was followed by a huge black silhouette that shot out and arrived in the sky.
Boom! Boom! Boom! Boom! Boom!
Along with the series of loud sounds resonating from the surface of the sea ocean, more than a hundred wild beasts that looked identical to each other appeared around Duan Ling Tian. These beasts were exactly identical to the pangolin-like creature just now.
Casting a glance at his surroundings, Duan Ling Tian saw hundreds of glossy dark green eyes staring at him.
“All of them are Early Mortal Shedding Stage wild beasts… What a good boy you are! You couldn’t defeat me, so you called for so many backups!” Looking at the first wild beast that he had overpowered just now, Duan Ling Tian laughed as he scolded.
However, it was apparent that the wild beast which lacked intelligence did not understand him at all. Instead, it proceeded to nod its head at the over wild beasts and they nodded their heads in response as well.
If there were only eight to ten of these wild beasts, Duan Ling Tian would not be scared of them. However, with more than a hundred of them, Duan Ling Tian had no choice but to be more careful when going against them. Hence, he immediately took out his Sun Shooting Bow and the arrow that he always brought along with him.
The horde of wild beasts charged towards Duan Ling Tian like they were clumsy dumplings.
Somehow, three additional figures appeared at the sky above Duan Ling Tian and the group of wild beasts. They were a middle-aged man, a young man, and a young woman.
“What a rare sight!” The middle-aged man, who was dressed like a scholar with his head covered with a silk handkerchief and a fan in his hand, looked down at the scene below and chuckled.
“That’s right! Usually, those people who are able to make the Obsidian Pangolin call for help would usually possess a strength that’s able to kill it in just a short time… Yet, he actually let the Obsidian Pangolin call its clan over!” The young woman nodded in agreement.
“He’s just digging his own grave!” The young man snorted.
“Not necessarily!” The middle-aged scholar shook his head and looked at the purple figure who was surrounded and attacked by the Obsidian Pangolins with interest. “This young man seems to be quite young.”
Right at that moment, the young man beside him continued to answer as he stared at the purple figure, his eyes gleaming brilliantly with a peculiar luster, “He’s thirty-five years old.”
“Ye Man, don’t you think it’s rude to just probe other people’s age like that?” The young woman frowned as she chided.
The young man smiled nonchalantly. When he looked at the purple figure, disdain could be seen in his eyes. It was disdain looking down at him from a higher position.
“Who’s that?!” Duan Ling Tian, who was originally on his guard against the hundred over wild beasts, could suddenly feel a Spiritual Energy sweep towards him and envelope his entire being with a flash before dissipating right away.
At once, he looked up high in the sky.
His gaze instantly locked on one of the three men hovering in the air. That young man was looking at him disdainfully. “Was it him who probed me using the Spiritual Energy?”
Duan Ling Tian’s face turned dark right away. It had never crossed his mind that the people that he just met here over the seas would turn out to be this rude.
Right at that moment, a brilliance flashed over the eyes of the hundred over wild beasts that were surrounding Duan Ling Tian as they started to make their move. Blotting out the entire sky, they pounced towards Duan Ling Tian like locusts flying in the air.
“Senior Lin, should we help him?” The young woman looked at the middle-aged scholar and asked.
“Why should we care about him? Just let him die on his own!” Before the middle-aged scholar could reply, the young man had already answered indifferently. He was pissed off by the gaze that the man in purple had looked at him with just now.
Had it not been for the fact that the middle-aged scholar was present at the scene, he would have made his move long ago and cooperated with the wild beasts to kill him.
Now that the young woman wanted to save that purple figure, of course, he was not willing to do so.
“Let’s not rush and observe first,” replied the middle-aged scholar nonchalantly and he cast a glance at the young man with a calm look at the same time, causing him to turned pale sightly before lowering his head in fear.
“Just come at me!” As for Duan Ling Tian, he merely snarled out loud facing the hundred over wild beasts that charged towards him. As he soared up into the sky, he shot up upward like an arrow leaving its bow.
In just the flash of an eye, he had already arrived high in the sky and obtained the upper-hand.
The hundred or so wild beasts followed him without fail.
In the face of the wild beasts, Duan Ling Tian remained calm and with just a raise of his hand, his arrow slid through the bowstring of the Sun Shooting Bow. Although his strength had now improved a lot, he still only managed to pull the bowstring by a few centimeters. A slight curve could be seen on the bowstring as he pulled it.
“He can’t even pull his bow fully and he still dares to go against those hundreds of Obsidian Pangolins! He’s overestimated his strength too much!” Ye Man, the young man, snapped in arrogance.
“This bow…” Just as the young woman frowned slightly in puzzlement, the middle-aged scholar’s eyes brightened up right away. He could see that the Sun Shooting Bow in Duan Ling Tian’s hand was not an ordinary bow.
As a stifling thunderous sound reverberated in the air, the arrow in Duan Ling Tian’s hand left his hand and traveled all the way to the horizon.
In just the blink of an eye, the arrow dropped and transformed into arrow ray that blotted out the entire sky. Falling down heavily like a meteor shower, the ray soon enveloped the horde of wild beasts!
The technique that Duan Ling Tian had just cast was the Aerolite Shower of the Colossal Aerolite Arrow. Compared to the Aerolite Strike, the Aerolite Shower was actually much weaker in strength.
It was still in the first stage of the Saint Grade Martial Tactic, the Fundamental Awareness Stage.
However, the Aerolite Shower would be much more effective than the Aerolite Strike in such a situation.
Besides that, other than fully unleashing his brute strength, Duan Ling Tian had also used up all of his entire True Energy in his Qi Sea in this shot of his. This was the first time he had unleashed all of his energy in a battle ever since he made a breakthrough to the Mortal Shedding Stage Early Stage.
Whoosh! Whoosh! Whoosh! Whoosh! Whoosh!
The arrow ray blotted out the sky as it fell. It was as though a meteor shower had just taken place. Those wild beasts, on the other hand, were all engulfed by the meteor shower as well.
Thud! Thud! Thud! Thud! Thud!
Along with a series of faint sounds, more than half of the wild beast horde had their scaly armors pierced through and they died instantly.
With just a single shot of his arrow, he managed to kill almost a hundred over wild beasts.
Even though there was still a small number who had yet to die, Duan Ling Tian was already satisfied with such a situation. A wide grin crept upon his face.
“That’s powerful!” A gleam flashed across the young woman’s eyes. Confounded, the gaze that she looked at Duan Ling Tian with was completely different now.
“Not bad.” The middle-aged scholar nodded with a faint smile.
Upon seeing Duan Ling Tian showing off like that, Ye Man’s face was grave as though his parents had just died.
After almost a hundred wild beasts were killed, all of the dead corpses fell into the ocean and once again set off a series of raging waves. Not long after that, the entire sea was dyed a crimson red.
The rusty smell of blood rose in the air, making it extremely pungent.
