Chapter 1480: The Other Two Three-Star Saint Inscriptions
“Now that 10 days have passed… I suppose Senior Brother should be done with inscribing the other two Three-Star Saint Inscriptions on my Sun Shooting Bow, right?” After leaving the Seven Treasures Exquisite Pagoda, Duan Ling Tian left the outer court and entered the inner court.
“Did you see that? That’s Duan Ling Tian!” Unlike before, he was soon recognized after he entered the inner court. Many inner court disciples’ eyes were trained on him wherever he went.
‘No wonder those outer court disciples looked at me differently when I left my courtyard… It seems like the news of Senior Brother taking a disciple on behalf of his teacher and making me his junior brother has spread out.’ He had not gone out ever since he left Bai Li Hong’s mansion ten days ago.
He only left the second level of the Seven Treasures Exquisite Pagoda after a month. A month was equivalent to ten days in the outside world.
He knew the news had spread when he recalled those outer court disciples looking at him respectfully during his journey here and the complicated expression in the inner court disciples’ eyes.
Soon after, Duan Ling Tian arrived at Bai Li Hong’s mansion again.
“Young Master Ling Tian, please come in.” Even the servant in Bai Li Hong’s mansion was respectful to Duan Ling Tian now. He treated Duan Ling Tian as his second master.
“Junior Brother.” Bai Li Hong welcomed Duan Ling Tian from far away. He was extremely friendly.
“Senior Brother,” Duan Ling Tian responded with a smile.
“I hope this doesn’t disappoint you.” Bai Li Hong took out Duan Ling Tian’s Sun Shooting Bow immediately and handed it over to him.
Duan Ling Tian looked the Sun Shooting Bow as soon as he took it from Bai Li Hong. Soon, he saw the two extra Saint Inscriptions on it. “Senior Brother, what are the two Three-Star Saint Inscriptions that you’ve inscribed for me?”
“The two Three-Star Saint Inscriptions are Explosive Flame Saint Inscription and Corrosion Saint Inscription,” Bai Li Hong said with a smile, “These are the two Three-Star Saint Inscriptions that I exclusively picked for you. I think it’ll go well and work great with the Penetration Inscription.”
“I would like to hear more about it.” Duan Ling Tian had a curious expression on his face.
“It’s useless to talk about it. Let’s get out of the sect and experiment on the wild beasts outside,” Bai Li Hong suggested.
“That’s a great idea.” Duan Ling Tian nodded. Indeed, it would be useless to talk about it. It was better to put it to practice.
Subsequently, Duan Ling Tian and Bai Li Hong left the Moon Illumination Sect and arrived outside of the Moon Illumination Sect’s estate.
It was Duan Ling Tian’s first time leaving the Moon Illumination Sect since he arrived close to four months ago.
“Hmph! You’re lucky Bai Li Hong is with you.” A silhouette loomed at the side of the Moon Illumination Sect’s monastery gate. From the distance, it looked blurry, making people think it was just a figment of their imagination.
However, one would be able to tell it was a person upon closer inspection. If it was an outer court disciple, they would be able to tell it was outer court elder Huang Cheng with just a glance.
Although Huang Cheng was only an outer court elder, and his cultivation base was not as powerful as Bai Li Hong, he obtained a secret tactic to hide his location when he was young… Now that his cultivation base was at the Perfection Saint Rudiment Stage, it was impossible for people to see him as long as they were not powerhouses at the Saint Stage. This was why Bai Li Hong did not detect his presence.
He had requested to keep watch of the monastery gate recently… Apart from a few outer court disciples, usually there would also be an outer court elder in charge of the monastery gate duty. Naturally, Huang Cheng had an ulterior motive for making this request.
His target was Duan Ling Tian!
He would follow Duan Ling Tian if he dared to leave the Moon Illumination Sect without any powerhouses accompanying him. He would kill Duan Ling Tian once he was far away from the Moon Illumination Sect’s estate. He would then take his Spatial Ring and his Crystal Card.
His goal was to take back the Merit Points he had lost to Duan Ling Tian and kill him to vent his anger.
Naturally, Duan Ling Tian was unaware someone else at the Moon Illumination Sect was plotting his death apart from Liu Huan.
Duan Ling Tian followed Bai Li Hong to a remote place, away from the Moon Illumination Sect’s estate. There was a lot of wild beasts in this place.
Wild beasts were beasts with no sentience in the Dao Martial Saint Land. They were similar to wild animals on Mortal Continent that killed each other for survival and only the strong lived.
Each powerful wild beast had a territory of their own. They were very territorial and would fight to the death if someone were to invade their territories.
“This area is an Early Saint Stage wild beast’s territory,” Bai Li Hong said to Duan Ling Tian.
Duan Ling Tian nodded.
Bai Li Hong told him about this place before they arrived.
This place was called Beast Ridge.
All wild beasts above the Saint Rudiment Stage had their own territories here and were kings of their territories.
As soon as Bai Li Hong lifted his arms and swung them down, an invisible force slammed down on the ground in front of them. Not only was one of the big trees crushed, but a gigantic pit appeared on the ground as well.
“Watch out! It’s coming,” Bai Li Hong said, “Shoot him with all your might when it appears… Don’t shoot at its vital points though.”
“Don’t shoot at its vital point?” Duan Ling Tian was surprised. “Then how do we kill it?”
“Just do as I’ve said. However, you must activate the three Saint Inscriptions at the same time without missing anyone,” Bai Li Hong reminded him.
Duan Ling Tian nodded.
Soon after, a gigantic beast appeared before Duan Ling Tian’s eyes following the sound of a howl. It was a mountain-like wild beast. The earth quaked violently in its wake.
The wild beast’s appearance was very odd. Duan Ling Tian found it difficult to find words to describe it.
It had a triangular head with huge eyes on all corners. All three eyes were glaring at him and Bai Li Hong ferociously.
When a loud explosion reverberated in the air, Duan Ling Tian saw the mountain-like wild beast stomping. It shot into the sky like a cannon, aiming directly at him and Bai Li Hong.
Duan Ling Tian focused on his left eye and activated Strange Pupil quietly during the critical moment.
Suddenly, the wild beast’s speed slowed down in Duan Ling Tian’s left eye. However, it was still quite fast. The rumbling sound of wind echoed in its wake.
Duan Ling Tian lifted the Sun Shooting Bow with his left hand and formed a True Energy Arrow with his right hand. He then placed the arrow on the bow.
As he pulled the bowstring, waves of True Energy surged out of his Qi Sea through the 70 over Saint Veins. They rushed into the bowstring he was pulling and activated the three Saint Inscriptions on the bowstring.
Penetration Saint Inscription!
Explosive Flame Saint Inscription!
Corrosion Saint Inscription!
The three Saint Inscriptions were all Three-Star Saint Inscriptions.
While he held onto the bow and arrow, Duan Ling Tian’s left eye was focused on his target, the wild beast’s lower abdomen. It was not considered a vital point.
‘Since there’s the Penetration Saint Inscription, the arrow would penetrate through the Wild Beast’s body…But since it’s not its vital point, it’ll only be injured at most.’ Although Duan Ling Tian had many concerns, he chose to listen to Bai Li Hong’s words.
The second Duan Ling Tian released his fingers, the True Energy Arrow he was holding turned into a bolt of green lightning immediately and shot across the air.
Due to the Penetration Saint Inscription, the arrow seemed like a falling meteor tearing into space as it shot into the air.
In just a blink of an eye, the True Energy Arrow tore open the Wild Beast’s scales on his lower abdomen, and it cried out in pain. The arrow pierced through it. The arrowhead could be seen exiting from its back in just an instant.
“Look closely!” At this very second, Bai Li Hong’s sounded. It was like an explosion when it entered Duan Ling Tian’s ears.
Duan Ling Tian did as he was told. The scene before them paused in Duan Ling Tian’s left eye.
Everything happened in a blink of an eye.
In the next second, Duan Ling Tian was surprised to see the True Energy Arrow that pierced through the wild beast’s body easily due to the Penetration Inscription began to sparkle with a green light.
Subsequently, the bright green light exploded.
Following the explosion, the green True Energy flame exploded, causing a massive hole in the wild beast’s lower abdomen. The hole was big enough for two adults to pass through at the same time.
‘Explosive Flame Saint Inscription?’ As they listened to the wild beast’s devastating cry, these four words appeared in Duan Ling Tian’s mind immediately.
Whatever happened before them was not his doing.
The only possible cause was the Saint Inscriptions.
‘The Corrosion Saint Inscription is the only thing left.’ As if it was responding to Duan Ling Tian’s thought, black smoke began to emerge from the wild beast’s body. The black smoke began to spread and parts would vanish in its wake.
The hole on the Wild Beast’s abdomen turned bigger and bigger.
The wild beast’s flesh was completely corroded when the black smoke spread to it. It was as though it was splashed with sulphuric acid or decomposing powder.
The wild beast’s cry was getting softer and softer. After a while, it stopped completely.
In the end, the wild beast’s body corroded until it completely disappeared. All that was left was a cloud of black smoke drifting up into the air before it vanished.
Duan Ling Tian was dumbstruck.
A wild beast at the Early Saint Stage that was alive a second ago disappeared completely in just a blink of an eye.
There were many Inscriptions similar to the Corrosion Saint Inscription in the Rebirth Martial Emperor’s memory. The Rebirth Martial Emperor had even used some of it before.
However, those Inscriptions could only be used to fight Martial Artists with mediocre cultivation base. They were useless when used against Martial Artists with powerful cultivation base.
However, this Saint Inscription managed to turn a wild beast at the Early Saint Stage into ashes.
Duan Ling Tian was extremely shocked!
