Translator: EndlessFantasy Translation Editor: EndlessFantasy Translation
In that split second, the bandit had a timely discovery of the arrow Duan Ling Tian shot. He lowered his head and rolled away pathetically.
However, he managed to avoid Duan Ling Tian’s True Energy arrow.
A few strands of long hair of his were falling in the air.
“Mastery Mortal Shedding Stage!” Seeing how the bandit avoided the arrow, Duan Ling Tian was not disappointed. Instead, his eyes lit up.
Immediately, he released another arrow.
Body and Arrow Synchronization!
Duan Ling Tian jumped and shot out with the arrow. In the blink of an eye, he arrived in front of the bandit who was getting up after rolling away embarrassingly. Then, he landed steadily on the ground.
At that time, the bandit also discovered Duan Ling Tian and his face shifted. “Earlier, was it you who hit me below the belt?”
“Mastery Mortal Shedding Stage, seven points.” Duan Ling Tian’s gaze on the bandit was like a hunter looking at his prey. They sparkled brightly like two shiny stars in the night sky.
“Boy, you dare to ignore me?! You’re looking for death!” Being on the Mastery Mortal Shedding Stage, the bandit had more pride than an ordinary person. He was enraged when he saw Duan Ling Tian daring to ignore him.
He stomped his feet on the ground until it shook and cracked. Then, he seemed to transformed into a cannonball and launched towards Duan Ling Tian.
In his hands, a huge saber appeared.
The True Energy around the huge saber raged while the saber ray flared as if it had transformed into a foot-long giant saber. It fell towards Duan Ling Tian as if it wanted to split him in half.
“Die!” As the saber fell, the bandit smirked as if he had already foreseen the scene whereby the purple-clad youth in front of him was split into two halves.
In face of the bandit’s saber, Duan Ling Tian appeared calm.
Body and Arrow Synchronization!
With another arrow shooting out, Duan Ling Tian stood on it on his feet were able to avoid the bandit’s strike and instantly got near him.
Within the time needed to raise a hand, Duan Ling Tian took another shot.
When the bandit finally reacted and changed his expression dramatically, a sky full of arrows rained with an immense force as if there was a meteor shower.
Seeing this, the bandit did not dare to hesitate. He rapidly slashed out the saber in his hands while he lifted his arm to block the overwhelming arrow rain.
While the bandit was resisting the arrow rain and trying to escape, Duan Ling Tian made another move.
One arrow pierced between the eyebrows of the bandit and killed him.
Mastery Mortal Shedding Stage martial cultivators apart from those at the Peak Mastery Mortal Shedding Stage were like clay chicken and ceramic dogs in front of Duan Ling Tian; they were simply not worth mentioning.
“Duan Ling Tian, this bandit managed to avoid your shot earlier.” At that time, Zhu Lang who caught up commented in surprise.
It should be noted that almost all the bandits that they met along the way were killed by Duan Ling Tian in one shot. Now, this was the first bandit which managed to avoid Duan Ling Tian’s arrow.
“He was a Mastery Mortal Shedding Stage martial cultivator,” Duan Ling Tian responded with a smile.
“Mastery Mortal Shedding Stage!” Instantly, both Zhu Lang and Guo Li’s eyes lit up.
That was the first Mastery Mortal Shedding Stage bandit they had ever met.
“With this one, we probably have 39 points now.” Zhu Lang looked delighted. He would have 13 points even if the three of them divided the points equally. 13 points could be converted into 1,300 Merit Points in the City Governor’s Estate of Mound Hill City.
“We’ll continue.” Duan Ling Tian jumped up again and continued traveling on top of the trees with his left Strange Pupil in operation.
Naturally, the speed of the Strange Pupil operating was very slow. Otherwise, his spiritual energy would not be able to keep up.
It was also because of all that saving, Duan Ling Tian had only depleted one-fifth of his spiritual energy with four-fifths more for him to utilize.
Wherever the trio passed, it was as if they were harvesting the bandits’ lives.
Naturally, the one who did all the attacking was Duan Ling Tian.
“I really don’t know why Duan Ling Tian would want to cooperate with the others. Along the way, the two of them never made a single move.” One of the middle-aged men in silver armor, who was hidden in the dark and tailing the trio, could not help but shake his head.
“Everyone said beautiful women are worth dying for… It’s so shocking that Duan Ling Tian would make such a choice for a woman.” The other man also shook his head.
Obviously, he thought that Duan Ling Tian would cooperate and help Guo Li because he was hung up on Guo Li’s beauty.
“Yes. If this woman didn’t exist, the first place in the Lord City Governor’s test today would definitely be his,” sighed the former person, thinking that beautiful women were the root of all trouble.
From the beginning to the end, they could see that it was not Duan Ling Tian and Guo Li who had brought along a burden, but Duan Ling Tian himself lugging two burdens on his own.
“However, his eyesight is amazing! He fired his arrow even before we saw anyone in front of us. Apart from that Mastery Mortal Shedding Stage bandit, the rest were killed in one shot.”
“Yes, I don’t think I could go that far either! His eyes aren’t like human eyes. How can human eyes possibly see that far?”
The two persons, who were hidden in the dark to record the trio’s results and protect them, were discussing through True Energy Voice Transmission.
From the start, they noticed that Duan Ling Tian’s eyesight was far superior to an ordinary person’s.
Perhaps, they were stronger than Duan Ling Tian, but they believed that their eyesight was far inferior to his.
While Duan Ling Tian was clearing his path, there were several rapid-moving figures in the other directions which were headed towards the depth of the valley at a speed no less than Duan Ling Tian’s.
Xiong Hu who ranked No. 2 among the Thirteen Gangsters was leading with Jin Yuan Bao who ranked No. 3 closely behind him.
After that, there was Sun Ge who ranked No. 4 and Zheng Jian who ranked No. 5.
Along the way, they met a handful of Mastery Mortal Shedding Stage bandits and a lot of Early and Intermediate Mortal Shedding Stage bandits from whom they earned quite a lot of points.
However, although Sun Ge and Zheng Jian had each killed a Mastery Mortal Shedding Stage bandit, they were also severely injured.
“People from the City Governor’s Estate of Mound Hill City? There’s nothing that special about them!” A bang exploded along with a disgusted sneer while a figure flew away and smashed to the ground. He was disheveled and kept vomiting blood.
Looking at the Mastery Mortal Shedding Stage bandit whose killing intent was apparent on his face walking towards him, Zhang Ji Long’s face turned extremely gloomy.
‘Duan Ling Tian… It’s all your fault! If it weren’t for you, I would’ve at least evenly matched him even if I couldn’t defeat him!’ In face of the bandit who wanted to kill him, Zhang Ji Long gnashed his teeth but the target of his hatred was not the bandit before him. Instead, it was Duan Ling Tian.
In his opinion, he would not end up in this current predicament if it were not for Duan Ling Tian who had severely injured him the day before yesterday, which led to him partaking in the test with an injured body.
Just as the bandit was about to kill Zhang Ji Long, a silver figure appeared.
“36 Guardians of the City Governor’s Estate of Mound Hill City!” When the bandit saw the youth in silver armor before him, his face changed dramatically and he hurriedly turned around to escape.
Currently, there was only one thought in his mind.
Run as far as he could!
However, could he escape?
The youth in silver armor disappeared on the spot. By the time he reappeared, he was already blocking the bandit’s escape route and the bandit was killed before he had time to even beg for mercy.
The whole process was as smooth as passing clouds and flowing water.
After killing the bandit, the youth in silver armor coolly glanced at Zhang Ji Long and declared, “You’re eliminated.”
Zhang Ji Long stood up with a sullen expression as he turned around and walk along the way he came…
He knew that he was not fated with the City Governor of Mound Hill City to be his disciple.
’12 points…’ Zhang Ji Long became moodier and moodier when he thought of the points he had obtained.
While Zhang Ji Long was eliminated, Hou Lin was also severely injured by a Mastery Mortal Shedding Stage bandit someplace else. Fortunately, the guardian who was guarding him made a move and managed to save him.
However, he was also eliminated after that.
When Zhang Ji Long and Hou Lin walked out of the valley, they discovered four others who had been eliminated before them. The four of them ranked the bottom four among the Thirteen Gangsters.
However, the four of them were merely Intermediate Mortal Shedding Stage martial cultivators.
After discovering that, both their faces became a little bit sadder.
“Damn it! Duan Ling Tian still hasn’t come out…” Both of them were in a foul mood when they saw that Duan Ling Tian had not been eliminated.
Even though they really wished that he would die in the valley, they knew that it was impossible because of the protection of the 36 Guardians. Now, they only hoped that he would be eliminated earlier.
Unfortunately, they were destined to be disappointed.
When the trio almost reached the end of the valley, four others had also reached consecutively and they saw one another.
“Duan Ling Tian! Guo Li!” Four pairs of eyes landed on Duan Ling Tian and Guo Li in unison. Zhu Lang who was by their side was totally ignored.
“Duan Ling Tian, I didn’t expect you to be so lucky that you managed to reach this far… I thought you’d be eliminated halfway through,” Zheng Jian mocked with a fake smile.
“I’ve always been lucky. That’s nothing extraordinary.” Duan Ling Tian cooly glanced at Zheng Jian. “You, though, surprised me by coming this far.”
“Hmph!” Zheng Jian scoffed and looked towards Guo Li who was beside Duan Ling Tian. “Sister Guo, you should’ve cooperated with me… By cooperating with Duan Ling Tian along the way, you didn’t score many points, did you?”
As Zheng Jian spoke, he looked at Duan Ling Tian with a smirk.
Duan Ling Tian was silent even after hearing Zheng Jian’s words.
However, Zhu Lang who was beside Duan Ling Tian and Guo Li almost laughed out loud. Did not score many points by cooperating with Duan Ling Tian?
“Hahahaha…” Just as Guo Li’s face sank and wanted to say something, a burst of mad laughter burst from the depths of the valley, getting closer and closer to them.
Not long after, a figure appeared in front of Duan Ling Tian and the rest.
It was a middle-aged man dressed in a gray robe with several scars on his face which looked hideous.
“Since you’ve made it here, it must mean that all of you are pretty strong. It’s a pity that all of you have to die here today!” The person glanced back and forth between Duan Ling Tian and the rest indiscreetly.
