However, Wang Tao’s appearance left him no choice but to give up.
It was apparent Wang Tao was sent by Bai Li Hong to protect Fang Hui, the City Governor of Mound Hill City.
Although he was confident he could defeat Wang Tao, he was not confident he could kill him. After all, both of them were at the Paramount Saint Rudiment Stage. Unless there was a great disparity in their strength, he really could not say he had the confidence to kill him.
Moreover, even if he was confident he could kill Wang Tao, Bai Li Hong would definitely suspect him when he returned and found out that Fang Hui was dead.
Not many people in the Moon Illumination Sect’s surrounding districts could kill Wang Tao. It was not hard to figure out it was him.
Killing Wang Tao was completely different from killing Fang Hui. Anybody above the Master Saint Rudiment Stage would be able to kill Fang Hui.
“Thank you, Deacon Wang.” Seeing how quickly Liu Huan left, Fang Hui sighed in relief before he quickly expressed his gratitude to Wang Tao.
“There’s no need to thank me. I was only asked to do this by someone,” Wang Tao replied indifferently before he left.
Naturally, he did not really leave. He had concealed himself to protect Fang Hui in the dark.
On the other hand, after Liu Huan had left, he became more furious the more he thought about it. “F*ck! That old man Bai Li Hong is such a busybody!”
At this moment, a sense of helplessness rose in his heart. It was as though every step he made was already accurately predicted by Bai Li Hong. It caused him to feel extremely aggrieved.
‘I hope the Mountainshade Black Market’s people would seize this chance during the Hunting Assessment and kill Duan Ling Tian in one fell swoop! Once Duan Ling Tian is dead, Bai Li Hong will no longer be against me in the future,’ Liu Huan thought to himself.
“Apart from that, from now on, the disciples that I, Liu Huan, accept have to swear by the lightning penalty oath that they’ll never betray me… If they refuse to take the oath, I won’t accept them as disciples no matter how high their innate talent is.” Upon remembering Su Qi and Zhou Qi whom he had killed, Liu Huan felt a wave of irritation.
He really felt he was going through a patch of bad luck. The two disciples he accepted had betrayed him. Due to this reason, he had made up his mind. Whoever wanted to become his disciple would have to swear on the lightning penalty oath first.
When Liu Huan gloomily returned to the Moon Illumination Sect, Duan Ling Tian had already killed many wild beasts in that lofty mountain range.
Although he had killed many wild beasts, his robe was still clean and nice. It was as though he was having an easy time killing the wild beasts. In fact, it really was not difficult for him at all.
Casting aside the fact that he could defeat an enemy with a higher cultivation base with his cultivation base at the Mastery Saint Rudiment Stage alone, there were no other wild beasts that could match up to him in regard to cultivation base in the lofty mountain range.
‘I think there are not a lot of Mastery Saint Rudiment Stage wild beasts here,’ Duan Ling Tian thought to himself.
Throughout the journey, he had already killed several dozens of wild beasts at the Intermediate Saint Rudiment Stage.
The wild beasts he had killed were at the most at the Early Saint Rudiment Stage. There were about several hundreds of them.
Perhaps God had heard Duan Ling Tian’s inner thought for when he continued to walk for a while, an ear-deafening roar resonated in the air. It was as loud as a clap of thunder. Duan Ling Tian felt as though his eardrums were on the verge of bursting.
“This is a Mastery Saint Rudiment Stage wild beast?” The moment Duan Ling Tian heard the impactful roar, his heart jolted.
Soon after, he saw a gigantic beast the size of a tiny mountain charging toward him. As it charged toward him, the ground trembled in its wake, and the trees fell one by one.
It left its gigantic footprints in its wake as well. Every footprint was like a huge pit.
“What a timing!” In the face of this menacing and furious Mastery Saint Rudiment Stage wild beast, Duan Ling Tian did not feel afraid. Instead, he charged ahead.
At this moment, vast True Energy surged out of Duan Ling Tian’s body and transformed into a huge hammer in the sky in just a blink of an eye. Like a meteorite crashing down, it crashed down violently at the Mastery Saint Rudiment Stage wild beast that resembled a gorilla.
In the face of the gigantic hammer that was consolidated by Duan Ling Tian using the True Energy Consolidated Weapon, the Mastery Saint Rudiment Stage wild beast opened its bloody mouth and roared loudly.
The horrifying sound formed a sound wave attack immediately. There were visible ripples in the air.
As the sound waves rolled out, Duan Ling Tian’s gigantic hammer that was consolidated using the True Energy Consolidated Weapon seemed to have smashed into a bed of cotton. In the end, it was crushed.
“What a powerful sound wave attack.” Upon seeing this scene, Duan Ling Tian was astonished. He did not expect the Mastery Saint Rudiment Stage wild beast’s roar would be able to shatter his True Energy Consolidated Weapon.
In fact, the gigantic hammer that was consolidated by his True Energy Consolidated Weapon could actually kill an Intermediate Saint Rudiment Stage wild beast with just a smash.
“What a good fellow! I didn’t think you’ll be so powerful… In that case, I’ll accompany you for a game then.” In the face of the Mastery Saint Rudiment Stage wild beast’s power, Duan Ling Tian was not afraid. Instead, his eyes were gleaming brightly as he took out a heavy broadsword. It was none other than the Thousand Mass Sword.
At the same time, the wild beast began to roar again before raising both of its fists that were similar to gigantic stones and brought them down on Duan Ling Tian. Wind howled thunderously it in its wake, it was deafening.
“Good timing!” In the face of the iron fists that were like gigantic cannonballs, Duan Ling Tian laughed and raised the Thousand Mass Sword in his hand before charging toward the wild beast in a manner that seemed as though he could hold up thousands of men.
“Gargantuan Taishan!” Duan Ling Tian seemed particularly excited as he shouted out the name of his next technique. The Thousand Mass Sword in his hand suddenly crashed down like a collapsing mountain, smashing on the wild beast’s iron fists.
As two deafening explosion reverberated in the air, the Thousand Mass Sword in Duan Ling Tian’s hand clashed with the wild beast’s iron fists. The True Energies clashed and raised violently opposing airwaves.
The rolling airwaves set off a series of thunderous air detonation and a flurry of tyrannical hurricane swept out, blowing the stone rubbles in the surroundings up in the air as the trees fell.
The wild beast roared loudly and took a step back. A hint of terror could be seen in its red eyes that were as huge as a gong.
Although wild beasts did not have the intelligence of a Saint Beast, it still possessed survival instinct after living in such a harsh environment.
Duan Ling Tian had blocked its fists with just one sword. At this moment, he had already regarded Duan Ling Tian as a powerful enemy.
When Duan Ling Tian saw the terror in the wild beast’s eyes, he thought it would retreat after being made aware of the overwhelming odds against it. However, a shocking scene took place.
Boom! Boom! Boom!
As a series of drum-like sound resonated in the air, the wild beast continued to beat its chest with its fists continuously in a frenzy. Its manner was similar to a gorilla, there was almost no difference at all.
If one really had to pick out a difference, it would be the size of the wild beast was several times bigger than a gorilla.
“Don’t tell me it has gone crazy?” Just as Duan Ling Tian thought the wild beast before him had gone crazy, a shocking scene took place.
As the wild beast continued to beat its own chest, a red mist emitted out of the place where his heart was located. It shrouded it completely before it seeped into its pore.
The bloody red mist continued to expand until it covered the wild beast entirely. It was as though it was covered by a layer of blood-like energy. Bolts of lightning could be seen in the blood-like energy.
“What’s this?” Duan Ling Tian was completely astounded by the scene before him. What the hell was this?
“Don’t tell me that it went into berserk mode?” At this moment, a light bulb came on in Duan Ling Tian’s mind.
The idea appeared suddenly because he remembered a type of demon beast clan he had previously encountered. It was the Berserk Mongrel Rodent Clan. It was a clan that could go into berserk mode. Once it had entered berserk mode, its strength would be greatly amplified.
The wild beast that was covered entirely in the blood-like energy suddenly seemed to have transformed into an invincible battle god at this moment. As it roared at Duan Ling Tian, sound waves rolled out and continued to compress and explode in the air, setting off thunderously loud sounds.
“As expected, it has really become so much more powerful now!” Even Duan Ling Tian felt pain in his ears from this sound wave. It was apparent that it was on a completely different level from the one earlier.
Duan Ling Tian took a deep breath, he did not dare to hesitate. His True Energy merged with the Thousand Mass Sword in his hand, and he instantly activated the Two Star Saint Inscription, the Thousand Mass Saint Inscription. Just as the wild beast swung its fists toward him again, he charged forward in a timely manner.
The same sword had become even more terrifying because of the Thousand Mass Saint Inscription’s energy.
However, such a terrifying sword had actually been smacked away by the wild beast’s iron fists. Moreover, it vibrated so much until the part where Duan Ling Tian’s thumb met his index finger tingled. A red mark could also faintly be seen as well.
Although it did not draw blood, it was still enough to shock Duan Ling Tian.
His body was unlike those of ordinary people.
Even the five-clawed Divine Dragon from the Dao Martial Saint Land’s dragon clan that was at the same level as him could not compare to him in regard to the toughness of their bodies.
However, the part where his thumb and index finger met had actually been hurt by the tremor.
Duan Ling Tian’s broadsword was pushed away, and the wild beast’s iron fists also shifted their directions. However, it missed its mark. Soon after, it regained its senses and swung his iron fists at Duan Ling Tian again. It was as though he would not rest until he killed Duan Ling Tian.
“I’m not going to play with you anymore!” With a raise of his brow, Duan Ling Tian’s True Energy surged out of his Qi Sea into his hands through the 99 Saint Veins. At the same time, he put away the Thousand Mass Sword and swung both his fists out directly at the wild beast’s fists.
If somebody else was here, he would definitely think Duan Ling Tian had overestimated himself.
He had been defeated by the wild beast that had gone berserk when he used his sword earlier. Now he actually dared to fight the wild beast with his bare hands? He really overestimated himself by a lot.
However, what they did not know was Duan Ling Tian’s punch had activated his brute strength.
His strength now was a level higher than the five-clawed Divine Dragons’ brute strength. It swept out tyrannically together with his rolling True Energy on his fists as it clashed against the wild beast’s iron fists that were intertwined with the blood-like energy.
