Chapter 282: Life and Death Arena Invitation
Translator: KurazyTolanzuraytor Editor: Jay
There was a wide variety of things being traded in the Megrez Peak’s Trade Hall, and among them was the flesh of various wild animals and fierce beasts…
Duan Ling Tian arrived at the Trade Hall once again and spent a bit of silver to buy a large amount of wild animal meat that was frozen, filling a few of his Spatial Rings.
Duan Ling Tian walked out of the Trade Hall. Just when he intended to leave, he seemed to notice something and looked into the distance.
On the chain bridge, two figures walked swiftly to step onto the stone platform of Megrez Peak.
These two young men were similar to him in that they were both Seven Star Sword Sect outer court disciples.
Duan Ling Tian wasn’t unfamiliar with these two people.
“Enemies really are bound to meet.” After he recognized these two people, the corners of Duan Ling Tian’s mouth curled into a cold smile.
When he noticed these two people, they, who’d just walked off the Megrez Peak’s stone platform, noticed Duan Ling Tian as well. Instantly, a trace of pleasant surprise appeared on their faces.
“He finally appeared!”
After the two young man noticed Duan Ling Tian, their faces were full of excitement and wind blew past their legs as they swiftly flew over in the blink of an eye.
They exerted their movement techniques to the utmost limit!
Duan Ling Tian didn’t feel surprised when he noticed these two people flashing over towards him. He withdrew his gaze from the two people, completely disregarding them as he walked towards the mountain path on Megrez Peak…
But would these two people let him leave just like that?
The answer was no.
As if two gusts of wind blew by, the two young men obstructed Duan Ling Tian’s path.
“Duan Ling Tian, still thinking of fleeing?” The young man who spoke was precisely the outer court disciple that chose Duan Ling Tian to enter the Megrez Peak a few days ago when Duan Ling Tian entered the Seven Star Sword Sect…
He was also one of the three Seven Star Sword Sect disciples that Duan Ling Tian ordered Xiong Quan to throw out from the restaurant in Black Bamboo City over 10 days ago.
Duan Ling Tian remembered that this person seemed to be called Huo Xin.
The day he’d arrived, on the way to Megrez Peak Huo Xin had revealed hostility towards him at every turn, as if Huo Xin wished for nothing more than to kill him.
Later on, when he went to receive his outer court disciple’s attire, he was surprised to notice that Huo Xin had left.
At that time, he had been suspicious of whether Huo Xin had noticed that he wasn’t simple…
Now it seemed like that wasn’t the case, or Huo Xin wouldn’t be obstructing his path now.
“Duan Ling Tian! Today, I, Yuan Wu will properly get even with you for the enmity in the Black Bamboo City’s restaurant that day!” The young man beside Huo Xin looked at Duan Ling Tian and his eyes emitted traces of a vicious gleam that seemed ready to swallow Duan Ling Tian up.
Duan Ling Tian had a slight impression of this young man, it was precisely the other Seven Star Sword Sect outer court disciple that was thrown out of the restaurant by Xiong Quan…
Now, besides the inner court disciple from that day, the other two Seven Star Sword Sect disciples from that day had gathered.
“Oh? How are you going to get even with me?” Duan Ling Tian’s eyes narrowed into slits and his tone was calm as he questioned them.
“Humph!” Yuan Wu sneered and a dense flame jumped about within his eyes. “You, do you dare ascend the life and death arena to battle me?”
Life and death arena?
Duan Ling Tian frowned and his face slightly sank when he heard Yuan Wu.
The life and death arena was a place that only Seven Star Sword Sect disciples with irreconcilable enmities would choose to enter to conduct a life and death battle, which didn’t end until one party died!
“Life and death arena?” Yuan Wu’s voice wasn’t soft, causing some of the Megrez Peak outer court disciples that passed by to hear it. They exclaimed in low voices before instantly surrounding them.
Before long, the amount of Megrez Peak disciples that surrounded them grew more and more.
“Eh, it’s Senior Brother Huo Xin, and the Mizar Peak’s Senior Brother Yuan Wu.” Before long, someone had recognized Huo Xin and Yuan Wu.
As for Duan Ling Tian, although he’d once been involved in a farce with Zhao Lin here, the people who had an impression of him were far fewer than the amount of people that had an impression of Huo Xin and Yuan Wu.
“You’re called Yuan Wu?” Duan Ling Tian deeply gazed at Yuan Wu. “Yuan Wu, I don’t feel that the incident from that day can be considered as having any sort of enmity with you… The grudges between us are something that you all provoked. If it wasn’t for you all trying to forcefully buy something from me, would I have asked my servant to throw all of you out? After all is said and done, this is all something that all of you asked for!”
“Now, for this small matter, you want to invite me, this outer court disciple that has just entered the Seven Star Sword Sect, to ascend to the life and death arena for a battle? Don’t you think you’re going too far?” As he finished speaking, traces of cold lights arose within Duan Ling Tian’s eyes.
He wasn’t afraid of ascending to the life and death arena!
However, this Yuan Wu wanted to ask him to ascend to the life and death arena, and wanted to kill him just for the small matter from the other day… This caused him to be unable to help from having flames of rage arise within his heart!
“So that’s how it is.”
“Looks like it ought to be that this Junior Brother got into a conflict with Senior Brother Yuan Wu before he entered into the sect.”
“Forcefully purchase? If it’s really like this, then Senior Brother Yuan Wu is really going too far.”
“Then isn’t he going even more overboard now? Senior Brother Yuan Wu is a fourth level Origin Core Stage martial artist, and supposedly is soon to break through to the fifth level of the Origin Core Stage… Asking an outer court disciple who just entered our Seven Star Sword Sect to ascend to the life and death arena, isn’t this bullying the weak?”
“Actually it’s nothing, so long as this Junior Brother refuses.”
The spectating Megrez Peak disciples couldn’t help but discuss animatedly amongst themselves.
Yuan Wu frowned when he heard the discussions from the surrounding crowd and his face sank as he looked at Duan Ling Tian and sneered. “Small matter? Overboard? I, Yuan Wu, have lived to such an age in this lifetime, but it was still the first time I suffered such a humiliation! In my, Yuan Wu’s, heart, you, Duan Ling Tian, are my absolutely irreconcilable enemy, an enemy I desire to kill!”
As he finished speaking, Yuan Wu’s tone had traces of bloodthirsty icy coldness mixed within.
Duan Ling Tian’s face sank.
Yuan Wu started laughing when he saw Duan Ling Tian’s expression. “Of course, I know you surely don’t have the guts to accept my life and death arena invitation… But let me say first that if you don’t agree to my life and death arena invitation today, then in the future, I’ll heavily injure you every time I see you. So long as I don’t kill you or cripple you, the sect rules are unable to do anything to me!”
As he finished speaking, the smile on Yuan Wu’s face had traces of madness mixed within.
“Me too!” Huo Xin spoke out as well, and looked at Duan Ling Tian with a cold and indifferent gaze. “Duan Ling Tian, what Yuan Wu said earlier is what I want to say as well… Today, if you don’t dare agree to Yuan Wu’s life and death arena invitation, then in the future, there will be no place for you to have a foothold within Megrez Peak!”
As expected, the surrounding Megrez peak disciples were stirred the moment Huo Xin spoke.
“Senior Brother Huo Xin has a grudge with this Junior Brother as well?”
“Oh my god! This Junior Brother only just entered our Seven Star Sword Sect and he’s already offended two fourth level Origin Core Stage Senior Brothers?”
“He’s really too formidable! I have to hand it to him.”
The surrounding crowd of Megrez Peak disciples couldn’t help but exclaim in surprise, and they looked at Duan Ling Tian with gazes filled with a conflicting combination of admiration and pity.
As far as they were concerned, Duan Ling Tian’s courage deserved compliments for daring to offend both Huo Xin and Yuan Wu.
However, now that he had to endure the rage of both of them, his end could be easily imagined. It would surely be extremely miserable.
“Huo Xin, you want to kill me as well?” Duan Ling Tian took a deep breath, then looked at Huo Xin with a calm gaze as he asked with a deep voice.
“Of course!” Huo Xin practically didn’t hesitate in the slightest as he replied with a cold voice, and his tone had traces of viciousness mixed within.
Duan Ling Tian nodded, and the corners of his mouth curled into a cold smile.
This Huo Xin and Yuan Wu were overbearing that day in the Black Bamboo City’s restaurant when they helped the other Seven Star Sword Sect inner court disciple, desiring to forcefully buy his Jade-eyed Heavenly Mouse.
Later on, he only asked Xiong Quan to throw them out as a small form of punishment.
He felt he’d already showed mercy.
But today, these two people weren’t regretful in the slightest towards the mistakes they made that day, and instead atrociously wanted to kill him…
Duan Ling Tian’s gaze flickered, and traces of killing intent couldn’t help but jump about within his eyes.
“Duan Ling Tian, have you made a decision now? Do you want to accept my life and death arena invitation, and allow me to give you a swift death… or do you want me and Huo Xin to slowly torture you in the future?” Yuan Wu looked at Duan Ling Tian with a cold and indifferent gaze.
Duan Ling Tian took a deep breath.
Just when he was about to speak…
“Eh, isn’t this Junior Brother that brother from two days ago?”
“I didn’t recall it if you didn’t say so, but it’s really him! I heard he seems to have already obeyed Elder Zhao Lin…”
“What? He’s that pretty boy that obeyed Elder Zhao Lin?”
“Look at his delicate skin that seems as if it would be injured with a flick of the finger, there probably isn’t a second person in our Megrez Peak who can possess it. It ought to be him.”
Some of the spectating Megrez peak disciples recognized Duan Ling Tian.
Duan Ling Tian heard the discussions of these Megrez Peak disciples, and was nearly angered to death…
When did he obey Zhao Lin?
Moreover Duan Ling Tian noticed that after Huo Xin and Yuan Wu heard the discussion of the crowd of Megrez Peak disciples, their expressions went pale. When they looked at Duan Ling Tian again, their eyes had a sense of fear and disgust.
“Duan Ling Tian, you’re really capable… I really never imagined that you’d only just arrived at Megrez Peak and you’ve already gotten together with Elder Zhao Lin.” Even though Zhao Lin had noticed earlier that Duan Ling Tian’s skin had become white, but he didn’t pay attention to it. Now when he heard the discussion of the crowd of Megrez Peak disciples, he couldn’t help but recall the matter that was spread and gave rise to much discussion within the Seven Star Sword Sect’s Megrez Peak during these past few days.
The Megrez Peak’s outer court elder, Zhao Lin, had a special hobby, he’d taken a fancy towards a pretty boy disciple of Megrez Peak, and the disciple had even obeyed him.
Huo Xin couldn’t help but be slightly afraid in his heart when he thought of Zhao Lin.
If this Duan Ling Tian really had this layer of relationship with Zhao Lin, then he and Yuan Wu would probably have no means of taking revenge on Duan Ling Tian.
Zhao Lin, the outer court elder of Megrez Peak, was someone that they couldn’t afford to offend!
“Duan Ling Tian, you really are capable.” Yuan Wu’s face was gloomy as he looked at Duan Ling Tian.
Duan Ling Tian frowned, then looked at the surrounding Megrez Peak disciples that were discussing animatedly, and abruptly shouted out explosively with an unsightly expression. “Enough!”
Instantly, all the Megrez Peak disciples went silent, but their gazes when they looked at Duan Ling Tian had a sense of ill feelings, then once again went into an uproar.
“I heard Senior Brother Huo Xin and Senior Brother Yuan Wu say earlier that this pretty boy seems to be called Duan Ling Tian?”
“What a waste of such a good name!”
“An outer court disciple that has only just entered our Seven Star Sword Sect dares to yell before us?”
“Don’t all of you forget that he now has the backing of Elder Zhao Lin.”
