Chapter 1395: Savage Eyes
Translator: EndlessFantasy Translation Editor: EndlessFantasy Translation
During the critical moment, Su Qi turned around in the air and stomped both his feet suddenly. The shockwave formed by his True Energy hit hard in the air.
A loud explosion sounded at this moment. The rumbling shockwave descended at a rapid speed as he shot up like an arrow leaving its bow.
It was heading toward Ling Yun’s sword.
One was going upward while the other was going down. The sword rays that charged out first collided hard with the saber as the saber rays followed it like its shadow. They were like two scorching suns trying to outshine each other in the sky.
The collision of the saber and the sword was like the explosion of two suns as they collided with one another.
At this very second, the bright ray that was like sunlight shone as an air explosion was set off in the air. An insanely strong wind swept out in all directions.
As the items in the assembly hall were being blown away, the Heavenly Leader Guardian moved again during the critical moment and blocked the majestic and rampant wind.
“Ahh!!” At the same time, everyone heard the sound of someone throwing up blood.
Ling Yun was kneeling on one knee, using his sword as support, after both of them had descended from the sky.
He was pale as he spat out mouthful after mouthful of blood. He looked terrible.
At the same time, Su Qi landed steadily on the ground. His cheeks were ruddy. It was obvious that it was caused by the rumbling vital blood in his body.
However, he was not hurt.
Everyone present gasped.
They were both at the Perfection Mortal Shedding Stage, but Su Qi defeated Ling Yun who had attacked first with merely three hits.
At this very moment, apart from Duan Ling Tian, the eleven Thirteen Gangsters thought their abilities were not worth mentioning at all in front of Su Qi.
‘He’s worthy of being Master City Governor’s disciple,’ many of them exclaimed inwardly.
Knowing someone by his reputation was not as good as meeting them in person. They were thoroughly convinced by Su Qi’s ability now.
‘This Su Qi’s ability… I’m afraid it has already reached the peak of the Perfection Mortal Shedding Stage! I think he’s only one step away from breaking through to the Paramount Mortal Shedding Stage,’ Duan Ling Tian thought to himself as he looked at Su Qi.
Ling Yun had consumed a Healing Medicinal Pill. After he had recovered slightly, he said to the City Governor of Mound Hill City with a bitter expression on his face, “I’m defeated with three hits.”
Currently, no one thought the City Governor of Mound Hill City had given Ling Yun an ideal test… Ling Yun had failed the test that seemed ideal in the beginning.
“I’ll give you another chance… I’ll take you as my disciple if you can endure three hits and stay undefeated by Su Qi a month from now. You may return now,” the City Governor of Mound Hill City said as he looked at Ling Yun.
“Thank you, Master City Governor!” Ling Yun’s eyes lit up upon hearing he would be given another chance. He left the assembly hall immediately after he stood up and returned to the Latent Dragon Camp to cultivate.
After he left, everyone shifted their eyes to Su Qi.
The strength Su Qi had demonstrated earlier had shocked everyone.
At this moment, Su Qi returned to his position behind the City Governor of Mound Hill City. His expression remained as cold as it was earlier.
“I heard someone in the Thirteen Gangsters also came from the Mortal Continent as well?” The City Governor of Mound Hill City asked as he glanced at the remaining twelve Thirteen Gangsters.
“Master City Governor!” Duan Ling Tian stepped forward.
“Master City Governor, Duan Ling Tian became one of the Thirteen Gangsters on the first day of joining the Latent Dragon Camp… He broke through to the Mastery Mortal Shedding Stage a month ago and defeated Hou Lin who’s at the same stage,” the Heavenly Leader Guardian said.
Hou Lin was, naturally, present on the scene. His face turned slightly solemn when he heard the Heavenly Leader Guardian’s words. He clenched his fists tightly as his body shook.
He would never forget the humiliation he had gone through a month ago!
‘Duan Ling Tian, you’ll regret this… I’ll make you regret this!’ Hou Lin stared at Duan Ling Tian’s back and roared in his heart.
“Mastery Mortal Shedding Stage? Aren’t you only at the Intermediate Mortal Shedding Stage?” The City Governor of Mound Hill City said with a frown after he heard what the Heavenly Leader Guardian said.
Duan Ling Tian knew his cultivation base had been exposed after he heard the City Governor of Mound Hill City’s words… However, he did not mind that. There was nothing for him to hide since he did not commit any crime.
The City Governor of Mound Hill City’s words stunned everyone, including the Heavenly Leader Guardian. He exclaimed out loud, “Intermediate Mortal Shedding Stage?”
Subsequently, he performed the Spiritual Secret Tactic to check Duan Ling Tian’s cultivation base.
His facial expression changed when he discovered the result. “He… He’s really at the Intermediate Mortal Shedding Stage! Duan Ling Tian, you… You’re only at the Intermediate Mortal Shedding Stage?”
“Yes.” Duan Ling Tian nodded. He had sensed the Spiritual Energy coming from the Heavenly Leader Guardian so he knew he was checking his cultivation base.
At this moment, two people exclaimed out loud, “Impossible!”
It was Hou Lin whom Duan Ling Tian had defeated a month ago, and Zhang Ji Long whom he had defeated just yesterday.
Both of them had fought Duan Ling Tian before so they knew how powerful Duan Ling Tian was.
However, they could not believe Duan Ling Tian’s cultivation base was only at the Intermediate Mortal Shedding Stage.
“Hmph! Master City Governor and I both checked Duan Ling Tian’s cultivation base with Spiritual Secret Tactic… His cultivation base is really at the Intermediate Mortal Shedding Stage.” The Heavenly Leader Guardian scoffed softly and glared at Hou Lin and Zhang Ji Long. “Why? Are you doubting Master City Governor and my words? Do both of you think we’re mistaken because we’re old?”
“I don’t mean that!” Hou Lin and Zhang Ji Long said.
Hou Lin and Zhang Ji Long realized they had stepped out of line and looked down immediately.
At this moment, the eleven Thirteen Gangsters, including Guo Li, were looking at Duan Ling Tian in a completely different way.
Someone at the Intermediate Mortal Shedding Stage defeated Hou Lin who was at the Mastery Mortal Shedding Stage?
“A few days ago, Guo Li had broken through to the Mastery Mortal Shedding Stage and defeated Hou Lin who’s at the same level… Later on, Zhang Ji Long who has broken through to the Mastery Mortal Shedding Stage defeated Guo Li,” Jin Yuan Bao who was ranked no.2 in the Thirteen Gangsters said at this moment.
“Just yesterday… Duan Ling Tian defeated Zhang Ji Long in just one blow!” Jin Yuan Bao said. His gaze was complicated when he looked at Duan Ling Tian.
He had witnessed Duan Ling Tian’s fight yesterday… At that time, he was almost certain Duan Ling Tian was the same as him. He thought Duan Ling Tian was also at the peak of the Mastery Mortal Shedding Stage.
However, through the check by the City Governor of Mound Hill City and the Heavenly Leader Guardian who were both powerhouses at Saint Rudiment Stage today, he found out that Duan Ling Tian was only a Martial Cultivator at the Intermediate Mortal Shedding Stage.
“Duan Ling Tian is… is your cultivation base really only at the Intermediate Mortal Shedding Stage?” Guo Li asked in disbelief.
“Yes.” Duan Ling Tian nodded.
“Then how about three months ago? That time when you first defeated Zhang Ji Long, what was your cultivation base back then?” Guo Li asked again.
When Guo Li finished speaking, the remaining Thirteen Gangsters and the Heavenly Leader Guardian recalled that Duan Ling Tian had defeated Zhang Ji Long once before he had broken through three months ago.
Duan Ling Tian did not perform any outstanding ability back then. He had defeated Zhang Ji Long using the advantage of archery.
“Three months ago… I was at the Early Mortal Shedding Stage,” Duan Ling Tian said.
It was as though Duan Ling Tian’s words had triggered a thousand waves. He stunned everyone once again.
“Do you mean… You were only at the Early Mortal Shedding Stage when you defeated Zhang Ji Long and Li Han and became one of the Thirteen Gangsters back then?” Guo Li inhaled sharply.
“Yes.” Duan Ling Tian nodded.
At this moment, most of them looked at Duan Ling Tian as though they were looking at a monster.
He had gotten himself a spot in the Thirteen Gangsters when he was only at the Early Mortal Shedding Stage.
That was insane!
‘Hmph! Hou Lin and Zhang Ji Long are really useless. They really embarrassed us Martial Cultivators at the Mastery Mortal Shedding Stage… They couldn’t even fight a Martial Cultivator at the Intermediate Mortal Shedding Stage,’ Zheng Jian who was ranked No.5 in the Thirteen Gangsters secretly mocked.
Now he was even more confident in defeating Duan Ling Tian.
Duan Ling Tian was just a Martial Cultivator at the Intermediate Mortal Shedding Stage. He was nothing to him!
At this moment, he seemed to have forgotten that Duan Ling Tian had defeated Zhang Ji Long before when he was only at the Early Mortal Shedding Stage… The Zhang Ji Long who was known as invincible among those at the Intermediate Mortal Shedding Stage in Mound Hill City’s border areas.
“Hmm?” Su Qi who seemed bored after defeating Ling Yun became amused after hearing about Duan Ling Tian and his achievements. He began to observe Duan Ling Tian.
This person seemed to be extraordinary, a genius Martial Cultivator from the Mortal Continent just like him.
“The Early Mortal Shedding Stage defeating the Intermediate Mortal Shedding Stage… After breaking through to the Intermediate Mortal Shedding Stage, you defeated two Martial Cultivators at the Mastery Mortal Shedding Stage.” The way the City Governor of Mound Hill City looked at Duan Ling Tian was completely different now. “Is your name Duan Ling Tian?”
“Yes.” Duan Ling Tian nodded.
“Duan Ling Tian, if I’m not mistaken, you must not be entirely human?” The City Governor of Mound Hill City asked.
“Not entirely human?” Duan Ling Tian was stunned.
Noticing Duan Ling Tian’s reaction, the City Governor of Mound Hill City was certain of his speculation, “It seems like you’re really not entirely human… One of your parents is a Saint Beast, am I right? It must be a Saint Beast with a powerful physique.”
As soon as the City Governor of Mound Hill City finished speaking, everyone looked at Duan Ling Tian.
“Only people like you who are created by a human and a Saint Beast would be so strong due to your powerful physique,” A knowing gleam flashed through the City Governor of Mound Hill City’s eyes. “Duan Ling Tian, did I get it right?”
Duan Ling Tian had shock written all over his face.
He did not expect the City Governor of Mound Hill City would have such savage eyes.
It was surprising that he managed to figure out the reason Duan Ling Tian managed to defeat his opponents who were at a higher level easily was due to his powerful physique.
The others were in shock too.
“So Duan Ling Tian’s the creation of a human and a Saint Beast?”
“No wonder he could defeat opponents who are at a higher level than he is… Seems like he inherited the Saint Beast’s powerful physique.”
Many of them showed fear when they looked at Duan Ling Tian.
“Hmph! To be blunt, he’s a bastard,” Zheng Jian scoffed coldly and said in disdain, “He only managed to defeat people at a higher level because he was fighting trash… If he fights with me, I’m sure I can defeat him in two to three moves.”
He glanced at Hou Lin and Zhang Ji Long on purpose as he spoke.
The two of them had a drastic change of expression as a hint of rage filled their eyes.
