Chapter 283: Duan Ling Tian’s Demand
Translator: KurazyTolanzuraytor Editor: Jay
Duan Ling Tian’s expression was incomparably unsightly, and wished for nothing more than to tear apart the mouths of these Megrez Peak disciples…
“Humph!” Right at this moment, a cold snort sounded out from afar and everyone could see a middle aged man walked over in large strides.
“Elder Zhao Lin!”
“Elder Zhao Lin!”
The crowd of Megrez Peak disciples instantly shut their mouths when they saw Zhao Lin arriving, no longer daring to rashly discuss anything anymore.
“What are all of you gathered here for?” Zhao Lin frowned, then swept the crowd of Megrez Peak disciples that were present with his gaze. His eyes then descended onto Duan Ling Tian, and was slightly surprised before shooting his gaze onto Huo Xin and Yuan Wu who stood opposite of Duan Ling Tian.
In next to no time, a Megrez Peak disciples that desired to stir up trouble spoke of the sequence of events of the matter.
Zhao Lin’s gaze quickly descended onto Huo Xin and Yuan Wu’s figures.
Instantly, Huo Xin and Yuan Wu’s faces went grim, and their heart were filled with nervousness…
As far as they were concerned, if Duan Ling Tian and Zhao Lin really had the relationship like in the rumors, then they would surely be met with misfortune today.
“Looks like Senior Brother Huo Xin and Senior Brother Yuan Wu are going to suffer misfortune.”
“Elder Zhao Lin is surely going to stand up for Duan Ling Tian.”
Most of the Megrez Peak disciples present now all had the same thoughts as Huo Xin and Yuan Wu.
“Yuan Wu, you intend to invite Duan Ling Tian for a battle on the life and death arena?” Zhao Lin’s gaze descended onto Yuan Wu as he slowly asked.
A trace of brilliance lit up deep within his eyes, as far as he was concerned, this was perhaps a chance to probe Duan Ling Tian…
He was filled with interest towards Duan Ling Tian’s cultivation method, the Muscle Meridian Rebirth Scroll.
He wanted to know if the rebirth within the Muscle Meridian Rebirth Scroll was similar to the rebirth provided by the 10,000 Year Stalactite Milk, and was able to increase natural talent in the Martial Dao…
If he was able to prove that both of them were similar, then he must obtain this cultivation method from Duan Ling Tian!
But, now when Yuan Wu heard Zhao Lin’s question, he thought that Zhao Lin wanted to condemn him. “Elder Zhao Lin, I’m in the wrong… I didn’t know earlier that Duan Ling Tian is yours, I…”
“What Duan Ling Tian is mine?” Zhao Lin’s face sank and said furiously. “Could it be that you believe those fictitious rumors as well?”
Yuan Wu was stupefied, as he never expected Zhao Lin’s reaction would be so huge.
“Hmph!” Zhao Lin coldly swept Yuan Wu with his gaze. “If you’ve worried about me, then you can be at ease. There’s no relationship between me and Duan Ling Tian, whether he’s dead or alive has nothing to do with me! If Duan Ling Tian really has an irreconcilable enmity with you, then you can continue to invite him to the life and death arena! The Megrez Peak life and death arena hasn’t seen blood in years, and I really look forward to it.”
Zhao Lin’s words were like a stone that gave rise to a thousand ripples!
The spectating crowd of Megrez Peak disciples were all shocked.
“Could it be that Elder Zhao Lin really has no relationship with Duan Ling Tian?”
“Nonsense! Elder Zhao Lin already said so, it has nothing to do with him whether Duan Ling Tian is dead or alive. How could they possibly have a relationship…?”
“Exactly, if it was you, would you allow your lover to ascend the life and death arena to give his life away?”
Even though what Zhao Lin said caused Duan Ling Tian to be extremely uncomfortable, as it was like instigating Yuan Wu to invite him to battle on the life and death arena.
But now that the relationship between him and Zhao Lin had been cleared up, it caused him to heave a sigh of relief as well.
It didn’t matter if others misunderstood him on any other matter.
He wasn’t willing to be misunderstood!
Yuan Wu’s eyes lit up when he heard what Zhao Lin said, and the corners of his mouth curled into a slightly evil smile.
Huo Xin who stood beside him had a face full of smiles as well.
It looked like they could take revenge like they wished…
Duan Ling Tian noticed the expressions of Yuan Wu and Huo Xin, and his eyes narrowed as the corners of his mouth curled into a cold smile.
If Yuan Wu and Huo Xin were really impervious to reason, then he wouldn’t show mercy!
There was a ball of fire that was burning within Duan Ling Tian’s heart, and would explode out at any moment…
Before long, Duan Ling Tian saw Yuan Wu take two steps forward, and look at him. “Duan Ling Tian, have you finish considering? Will you agree to battle me in the life and death arena, or will you refuse and allow me and Huo Xin to slowly torture you in the days to come?” A smile of victory appeared on the corners of Yuan Wu’s mouth, as if Duan Ling Tian was only a piece of meat on the chopping block.
Along with Yuan Wu once again proclaiming his invitation to battle on the life and death arena to Duan Ling Tian, the gazes of the surrounding Megrez Peak disciples all descended onto Duan Ling Tian.
They didn’t think that Duan Ling Tian would agree.
After all, Yuan Wu was a fourth level Origin Core Stage outer court disciple, where Duan Ling Tian was only an outer court disciple that had just entered the Seven Star Sword Sect, and seems to be around 20 year old.
As far as they were concerned, at such an age, his cultivation would at most be at the first level of the Origin Core Stage.
Zhao Lin stood at a distance, and lightly stared at Duan Ling Tian with a calm expression.
Just as he’d said, whether Duan Ling Tian lived or died had nothing to do with him.
What he wanted to confirm was whether the rebirth within the cultivation method Duan Ling Tian cultivated, the Muscle Meridian Rebirth Scroll, was able to increase the natural talent in the Martial Dao…
“Duan Ling Tian!” Huo Xin looked at Duan Ling Tian with a vicious expression. “If you refuse, then so long as you appear in the future, I’ll break all the bones on your body, then allow you to slowly heal up… In the future days, you won’t have any more time to cultivate, because your time will all be used to tend to your injuries.”
The surrounding Megrez Peak disciples felt a chill run down their spines when they heard Huo Xin.
“Senior Brother Huo Xin is too ruthless!”
“Looks like Senior Brother Huo Xin really hates Duan Ling Tian.”
“Aren’t you talking nonsense? If he didn’t hate him to the utmost limit, would he invite Duan Ling Tian to battle in the life and death arena?”
What Huo Xin said caused the burning flames within Duan Ling Tian’s heart to be unable to be suppressed any longer, and it completely exploded out!
“Huo Xin!” Duan Ling Tian’s gaze descended onto Huo Xin, and his eyes flickered with an icy cold sheen. “I can agree to Yuan Wu’s invitation to battle on the life and death arena… but I have a demand!”
“What demand? Speak!” Huo Xin hadn’t even spoken when he heard Duan Ling Tian’s words, when Yuan Wu’s gaze had already lit up and he asked eagerly.
As far as he was concerned, so long as Duan Ling Tian was willing to ascend to the life and death arena, and have a life and death battle with him, he would agree to any demand that wasn’t too overboard.
“What demand?” Huo Xin frowned as he asked.
“I hope that it’s three people who ascend to the life and death arena today… If you’re unwilling to agree, then I won’t ascend tp the life and death arena!” Duan Ling Tian looked at Huo Xin as spoke of his demand.
“Could it be that this Duan Ling Tian wants to get help?”
“OI the life and death arena, battles were ordinarily one against one. Duan Ling Tian is actually shameless to the point of wanting to get help?”
The surrounding Megrez Peak disciples were in an uproar, as they all felt that Duan Ling Tian’s demand was going too far.
“What? You want to get help?” Huo Xin sneered, and a trace of disdain appeared on the corners of his mouth. “Looks like you know your own limitations, and know that it’s impossible for you to be a match for Yuan Wu…”
Yuan Wu frowned, as he never expected that Duan Ling Tian would put forth a demand that was excessive!
“Huo Xin, I think you’ve got it wrong… I don’t want to get help.” Duan Ling Tian heard the discussions of the surrounding Megrez Peak disciples, then heard what Huo Xin said, and he knew that everyone misunderstood what he meant.
“You don’t want to get help? Then why did you put forth such a demand?” Huo Xin and Yuan Wu said at almost the exact same time, and their eyes that looked at Duan Ling Tian revealed dense and ruthless coldness.
“Hmph!” Duan Ling Tian said coldly. “Since your comprehension ability is so bad, I’ll say it more directly… I can ascend to the life and death arena, but I don’t hope to only have one opponent. I hope that I can battle both of you at the same time in the life and death arena!”
“I, one person, against the two of you!”
“A battle of life and death that doesn’t end until one side dies!”
As Duan Ling Tian finished speaking, his voice was sonorous, and filled with a majestic and powerful imposing manner!
Don’t you two want me to ascend to the life and death arena?
Then I’ll ascend to it!
Not only will I, Duan Ling Tian, ascend to the life and death arena, but I’ll even fight the both of you alone!
At the same time, battle intent and killing intent converged together within Duan Ling Tian’s eyes, and leapt up.
The blood in his body boiled!
As Duan Ling Tian finishing speaking, the scene went deathly silent, terrifyingly silent.
Now, even if one were to throw a needle on the floor, perhaps one could clearly hear the sound…
All the Megrez peak disciples were completely stunned.
At this moment as they gazed upon Duan Ling Tian’s figure that stood there, a portion of the Megrez Peak disciples felt that Duan Ling Tian was so lofty, lofty like a mountain, as if he’d transformed into an undefeatable war god that caused everyone to feel heartfelt admiration.
Moreover, not to mention anything else, just the courage from Duan Ling Tian daring to say this was already worthy of their admiration!
Even if Duan Ling Tian was killed in the life and death arena today, he would still have died a glorious death, and would be remembered in their hearts.
This was an outer court disciple who’d only just entered the Seven Star Sword Sect and dared to challenge two fourth level Origin Core Stage martial artists in the life and death arena…
Of course, there were also a portion of Megrez Peak disciples that did not spare a glance when they heard what Duan Ling Tian said.
“A mere outer court disciple that just entered our Seven Star Sword Sect dares to be so arrogant? Wanting to battle two Senior Brother’s in the life and death arena? He’s simply courting death!”
“According to me, he probably feels that if he faces Senior Brother Yuan Wu alone, he won’t die fast enough.”
“I think so too. If Senior Brother Huo Xin and Senior Brother Yuan Wu attacked together, this Duan Ling Tian would probably die in a single move!”
Zhao Lin’s brows knit, and he looked at the far away Duan Ling Tian, as if he was absorbed in thought and his heart jerked.
This Duan Ling Tian, did he really have confidence, or was he overestimating himself?
He urgently wanted to know the answer now.
“Hahahaha…” Huo Xin and Yuan Wu glanced at each other with faces full of shock, then couldn’t help but burst out in laughter.
“Duan Ling Tian, are you sure you want to ascend to the life and death arena and battle the two of us together?” Huo Xin suppressed his laughter with great difficulty, then looked at Duan Ling Tian, his brows knit and his eyes were filled with a trace of amusement. “I really hope that I’m able to battle you with Yuan Wu, as in this way, I’ll be able to kill you with my own two hands to vent the hatred in my heart!”
