Translator: EndlessFantasy Translation Editor: EndlessFantasy Translation
“We’re not as powerful as you are, Senior Brother Duan. We’re living in the wooden house district now.” Xiong Hu felt a little embarrassed by Duan Ling Tian’s question.
“Now that you’ve caused such a commotion, Liu Huan will soon find out about this… After this, you better be careful, and don’t leave the sect,” Ling Yun warned Duan Ling Tian as he looked at him solemnly.
“I think he has already found out by now,” Duan Ling Tian answered nonchalantly.
“Huh?” Ling Yun and Xiong Hu were dumbfounded.
“If I’m not mistaken, that Lin Fu who issued the duel invitation is actually Liu Huan’s man… Although he spoke in a high handed manner, I could tell the idea did not come from him just by the look in his eyes.” The eyes would not be able to lie.
Apart from the Rebirth Martial Emperor’s two reincarnations, Duan Ling Tian had already undergone two reincarnations. His judgment was very accurate due to this.
“If that Lin Fu is really Liu Huan’s man, then Liu Huan will be angered that he’s defeated by you! I’m afraid Lin Fu is only the beginning,” Ling Yun said anxiously.
“To sum it up, Liu Huan’s men will definitely focus on me for the time being… Use this period of time, cultivate with all your might and raise your strength as much as possible,” Duan Ling Tian added, “If they find out they’re unable to go against me in the sect, they’ll definitely shift their attention to both of you.”
Upon hearing Duan Ling Tian’s words, Ling Yun and Xiong Hu’s face turned grave immediately.
They knew very well that Duan Ling Tian was not exaggerating just to scare them.
The two of them immediately bade farewell to Duan Ling Tian and returned to their respective wooden house to cultivate… Duan Ling Tian’s words had given them immense pressure. It felt as though a mountain had just crashed down on them.
“Liu Huan!” Duan Ling Tian muttered as his eyes gleamed coldly.
If he found out about this when he had unwillingly acknowledged Fang Hui, the City Governor of Mound Hill City, as his teacher in the beginning, he would have remained indifferent to the matter between him and Liu Huan.
However, during the six months he had stayed in Mound Hill City, he had truly regarded Fang Hui as his teacher due to the sincere care he had given him.
The incident that left the deepest impression on him was the matter regarding the Zheng Clan.
The three Zheng Clan’s members had tried to kill him when he left the City Governor’s estate.
The instant execution of the three people was just the beginning… On that day itself, the entire New South Town’s Zheng Clan was annihilated!
All of this was ordered by his teacher.
Put aside his opinion on whether he agreed with Fang Hui’s extreme method of handling the matter, his heart was still enveloped with warmth. After all, Fang Hui was just trying to protect him and seek revenge on his behalf.
He, Duan Ling Tian, was not an iron-hearted person.
After discovering his teacher, Fang Hui, had been humiliated by Liu Huan from the Moon Illumination Sect, he had decided to come to Moon Illumination Sect to use it as a stepping stone and also deal with his teacher’s matter.
At the very least, he had to make sure that Liu Huan dies!
Naturally, that included Zhou Qi, his direct disciple!
Although the Moon Illumination Sect had a rule that forbade killing, these so-called rules were all set by the powerhouses.
His strength did not even have to surpass the few Saint Stage powerhouses in the Moon Illumination Sect, he only needed to be on par to with them before he could ignore their rules.
“Teacher, don’t worry… There will come one day when you’ll be able to walk with your head held high,” Duan Ling Tian muttered to himself.
“After Lin Fu, I’m sure Liu Huan’s men will still have other tricks up their sleeves… What’s more important now is to break through to the Perfection Mortal Shedding Stage.” Although he managed to win the battle with Lin Fu quickly, it did not mean he had the ability to single-handedly overpower Lin Fu.
Although his strength had improved by leaps and bounds due to his body’s two transformations, he could only overpower people like Ceng Zhi who was at the Paramount Mortal Shedding Stage… As for people at the peak of the Paramount Mortal Shedding Stage, Ceng Zhi was not comparable to them at all.
Today, if Lin Fu had not been so careless and underestimated him, he was not confident he could defeat Lin Fu in less than 30 moves.
When Duan Ling Tian returned to his independent courtyard to cultivate, the outer court that had been quiet for a month broke out in a commotion again. The spotlight was, naturally, on Duan Ling Tian.
Inside a vast mansion in the inner court.
“You trash!” Upon hearing about Lin Fu’s situation during the battle, Zhou Qi was livid. That night itself, he left the mansion to look for Lin Fu.
“Senior Brother Zhou, I’ve let you down.” Lin Fu felt a little guilty when he saw Zhou Qi.
“Hurmph! You were defeated in two moves! You’re brilliant, aren’t you? How much did you find out about his strength?” Zhou Qi asked after he snorted.
“Senior Brother Zhou, I was careless today… Otherwise, he wouldn’t have been able to defeat me even in 180 moves.” The moment Lin Fu recalled the battle, he felt a little aggrieved. If he had not been so careless, how could that Duan Ling Tian defeat him?
“Didn’t you hear me?” Zhou Qi’s face darkened immediately when he saw Lin Fu trying to evade the subject and steer clear of the crucial point.
“Senior Brother Zhou, I don’t dare to speak for others, but I, more or less, have a grasp on Duan Ling Tian’s strength… When he shot the last arrow, he had already cast the Silver Shirt. This means he must have unleashed his full strength,” Lin Fu quickly replied when he saw Zhou Qi’s expression.
Other than being a defensive technique, the Silver Shirt could also strengthen one’s body once it was cast… This was not a secret to Lin Fu.
When Duan Ling Tian shot the arrow and cast that Silver Shirt, it was obvious that he had accumulated his strength and struck with all his might.
“Do you think he’ll able to enter the top 30 in the outer court with his strength?” Zhou Qi asked.
“I think so,” Lin Fu replied truthfully after pondering for a while.
‘I can’t believe there’s actually another person who’s even more monstrous than Su Qi in Mound Hill City… I can’t leave this Duan Ling Tian alive! If Master finds out about him, he’ll definitely want to take him in as a direct disciple.’ The moment Zhou Qi thought of this, he began to feel a sense of urgency. He was tempted to barge into the independent courtyard Duan Ling Tian was staying him and directly kill him.
However, he managed to calm himself down in the end.
He knew he would succeed in killing Duan Ling Tian, but he would have to forfeit his life as punishment.
Due to this reason, no matter how much he wanted Duan Ling Tian dead, he would not be so stupid to make a move himself.
“Even if I can’t directly make a move, there’ll be somebody else who can make a move… With Duan Ling Tian’s innate talent, his position will most likely be even higher than Su Qi if he’s taken as a direct disciple by Master.” Zhou Qi had no doubt about this.
He was almost certain Duan Ling Tian’s innate talent was higher than Su Qi’s.
When Lin Fu saw Zhou Qi keeping quiet for such a long time as his expression changed constantly, he began to panic and called out to him, “Senior Brother Zhou.”
When Zhou Qi finally regained his senses, he glanced at Lin Fu indifferently. “Lin Fu, you don’t have to interfere with Duan Ling Tian’s matter anymore. Just stand aside and enjoy the show… If you dare to wag your tongue, I’ll never forgive you!”
“I won’t! I won’t!” Lin Fu swore as he quickly shook his head.
“Scram!” Zhou Qi snorted. No matter how he looked at Lin Fu, he was still angry with him.
Lin Fu heaved a sigh of relief. When he turned to leave, he ran even faster than a rabbit. It was as though he regarded Zhou Qi as a tiger.
“So his strength can be considered to be in the top 30 in the outer court? This result is acceptable. It’s within my expectation as well,” Zhou Qi muttered as a plan formed in his mind.
Duan Ling Tian was unaware that someone was scheming to kill him at this moment.
Currently, he was doing his best cultivating on the second level of the Seven Treasures Exquisite Pagoda.
The Nine Dragons War Sovereign Technique, Nine Dragons Form!
The five dragons carried the Heaven and Earth Spirit Energy from the air and the Saint Stones before shuttling through the 52 Saint Vein’s inside Duan Ling Tian’s body, circulating a great Qi cycle again and again.
Every time a great Qi cycle was completed, the Heaven and Earth Spirit Energy would transform into True Energy and merged with his Qi Sea that was the size of a basketball.
Just a little bit more, and the True Energy would be able to fill up the Qi Sea that was as big as a basketball.
“I’ll definitely be able to open up my Qi Sea to the Perfection Mortal Shedding Stage in a month and open up new Saint Veins in two months!” Duan Ling Tian was filled with confidence.
Currently, he looked forward the most to finding out how many Saint Veins he would be able to open after he made a breakthrough to the Perfection Mortal Shedding Stage.
Although he was only at the Mastery Mortal Shedding Stage, he had already opened 52 Saint Veins.
When he broke through to the Mastery Mortal Shedding Stage, he had opened 20 Saint Veins… In other words, when he opened his Saint Veins again, he would be able to open 21 of them at the very least.
“Even if I can only open 21 Saint Veins this time and another 22 when I break through to the Paramount Mortal Shedding Stage, the total number of Saint Veins I’ve opened at that time would be 95! And that’s just the lowest estimation.” The moment Duan Ling Tian thought about this, his heart could not help but beat faster.
Duan Ling Tian was eager to find out how many Saint Veins he would be able to open when he made a breakthrough to the Perfection Mortal Shedding Stage.
He was not worried about his strength after his breakthrough. He was certain it would definitely be a lot stronger, and it would be on a different level.
Although Mound Hill City was far from the Moon Illumination Sect, and Fang Hui, the City Governor of Mound Hill City, had left the Moon Illumination Sect after the entrance exam had ended, he still had his own way of finding out about what was happening in the sect.
“He just entered the sect, and he has already defeated the outer court disciple who was ranked 85th? Moreover, he also defeated another outer court disciple who was ranked 47th after a month?” When Fang Hui found out about this, he instantly stood up with a baffled expression on his face.
Although he knew that Duan Ling Tian’s innate talent was peerless among the ordinary younger generation, he did not expect Duan Ling Tian to be so monstrously talented.
“I guess only in the Moon Illumination Sect he’ll be able to stretch his limbs… The City Governor’s Estate of Mound Hill City is just too small so it can’t fit him at all. I think, in another few years, even the Moon Illumination Sect wouldn’t be able to fit him.” Fang Hui’s smile remained plastered on his face.
Although he was delighted, he could not help but worry. “Liu Huan definitely won’t just watch as he grows stronger…”
