Chapter 285: One Move
Translator: KurazyTolanzuraytor Editor: Jay
“What terrifying natural talent!”
“This Duan Ling Tian looks to be around 20 years of age, but is actually a fourth level Origin Core Stage martial artist… In our entire Seven Star Sword Sect’s younger generation, such natural talent is something no one is able to compare to!”
The surroundings of the life and death arena were in a complete uproar.
All the Megrez Peak disciples were shocked by the cultivation that Duan Ling Tian revealed.
It was unknown what sort of expression they would have if they knew that Duan Ling Tian was still holding back…
After all, even if he didn’t use a spirit weapon, Duan Ling Tian was currently able to exert the strength of 71 ancient mammoths at full force, and was comparable to a fifth level Origin Core Stage martial artist.
Just like before in the primeval forest, he was only able to kill that fierce beast Savage Tiger once he revealed his full strength.
Now, he intentionally only revealed a strength of 60 ancient mammoths that was comparable to a fourth level Origin Core Stage martial artist.
Perhaps, as far as Duan Ling Tian was concerned, Huo Xin and Yuan Wu weren’t worthy of him using his full strength.
“Looks like the cultivation method this Duan Ling Tian cultivated does indeed have its own uniqueness… Even to the extent that the rebirth provided by the cultivation method he cultivates is indeed able to increase the natural talent of a martial artist!” A trace of burning desire and greed appeared in Zhao Lin’s eyes.
Even when Duan Ling Tian had held back quite an amount of his strength now, but it was still sufficient to attract the greed within Zhao Lin’s heart.
“However, even if this Duan Ling Tian is a fourth level Origin Core Stage martial artist… The strength he exerted by relying upon a grade eight spirit sword is weaker than any one of Huo Xin or Yuan Wu! I hope that his cultivation method is within his Spatial Ring… Otherwise, it’s a troubling matter.” As he thought up to that point, Zhao Lin frowned. According to the rules of the Seven Star Sword Sect, the battle atop the life and death arena was something no one could obstruct.
Even though he was a Megrez Peak outer court disciple, he didn’t dare interfere in the battle of the life and death arena under the gazes of everyone present.
Obviously, Zhao Lin didn’t look favorably upon Duan Ling Tian, even if Duan Ling Tian revealed a cultivation that caused him to be extremely shocked.
“Duan Ling Tian!” In the life and death arena, Huo Xin suppressed the shock in his heart, then looked at Duan Ling Tian with eyes that were suffused with dense killing intent. “I really never imagined that you actually concealed yourself so deeply… You, are actually a fourth level Origin Core Stage martial artist! But today, you’re dead for sure!”
The might of Duan Ling Tian’s natural talent in the Martial Dao also caused Huo Xin to tremble with fear.
Now, he was slightly rejoicing. Luckily, Duan Ling Tian had ascended to the life and death arena, otherwise, with Duan Ling Tian’s natural talent, it probably wouldn’t be long before Duan Ling Tian would be able to surpass him.
If that time really came, then the one who would suffer misfortune would be him.
It wasn’t only Huo Xin who was rejoicing, as Yuan Wu was similarly rejoicing as well, and his eyes that looked at Duan Ling Tian were even gloomier and more vicious.
He knew that if Duan Ling Tian didn’t die today, then Duan Ling Tian would surely be a great future trouble. “Duan Ling Tian, even if you’re a fourth level Origin Core Stage martial artist, today, you’ll surely die!”
Even though Duan Ling Tian was a fourth level Origin Core Stage martial artist, he only had a grade eight spirit weapon, and as far as Yuan Wu was concerned, it posed no great threat to him.
Moreover, he was now dealing with Duan Ling Tian while joining forces with Huo Xin, and this made him feel even more strongly that there wouldn’t be any suspense from killing Duan Ling Tian!
“I’ve already said it… Both of you will surely die in a single move!” Duan Ling Tian’s long hair that spread out, fluttered without wind, and his crimson red demonic eyes flickered with an awe-inspiring cold light as it descended onto Huo Xin and Yuan Wu.
At this moment, besides him, it seemed that only Huo Xin and Yuan Wu remained within his world.
He was a hunter.
Huo Xin and Yuan Wu were his prey.
“Shameless boasting!” Huo Xin shouted coldly, then his figure jerked as the Origin Energy beneath his feat exploded out, and his entire figure seemed to have transformed into a sword that brought along a shocking imposing manner as it swept out towards Duan Ling Tian.
“Hmph!” At almost the exact same instant Huo Xin made a move, Yuan Wu moved as well, practically moving shoulder to shoulder with Huo Xin.
The grade seven spirit sword in his hand radiated a dazzling sheen, and seemed to transform into a venomous snake that bit towards Duan Ling Tian.
At this time, Duan Ling Tian moved as well.
Spirit Serpent Movement Technique!
Duan Ling Tian wasn’t afraid in the slightest when facing Huo Xin and Yuan Wu who’d joined forces. He moved to intercept them head on, and raging Origin Energy suffused into the grade eight spirit sword in his hand.
The Origin Energy lightly vibrated, and the frequency it vibrated slowly grew higher and higher…
This detail was something no one was able to notice.
The surroundings of the life and death arena were deathly silent as everyone held their breaths, and all their gazes descended onto the three figures that swiftly flashed atop the life and death arena.
The three figures encountered each other in practically an instant!
“Die!” Huo Xin and Yuan Wu’s faces emitted madness when they saw Duan Ling Tian coming over to intercept them, and the grade seven spirit sword in their hands whistled out as it transformed into sword images that filled the sky before enveloping downwards towards Duan Ling Tian, as if wanted to instantly annihilate Duan Ling Tian.
The corners of Duan Ling Tian’s mouth curled into an evil smile when faced with Huo Xin and Yuan Wu’s incomparably swift sword skill that was difficult to find any flaws in.
Exactly, Duan Ling Tian was smiling.
At this instant, including Huo Xin and Yuan Wu, all the people surrounding the entire platform that the life and death arena was located on, noticed Duan Ling Tian’s smile…
It was difficult for them to understand, why was Duan Ling Tian still able to smile at this moment?
It was simply bizarre!
At the instant that the corners of Duan Ling Tian’s mouth curled into a smile, his crimson red eyes squinted abruptly, and the grade eight spirit sword in his hand lightly vibrated, as if transforming into swimming dragon that was dancing about in the air.
As the Origin Energy vibrated, it seemed it even caused circles of ripples to be formed in the air.
Sword Drawing Arts!
Duan Ling Tian’s sword strike didn’t have any fancy style, and wasn’t hesitant in the slightest…
If a word was used to describe it, it would be straightforward!
The Sword Drawing Arts, the sword moved out like a bolt of lightning!
The sword light flashed, and accurately intercepted the grade seven spirit sword in Yuan Wu’s hand that whistled over.
Yuan Wu’s sword was the closest to Duan Ling Tian as well.
Duan Ling Tian’s sword instantly found Yuan Wu’s sword within the sword images that covered the sky, and directly fiercely smashed onto it…
The grade eight spirit sword instantly crashed onto the grade seven spirit sword.
Duan Ling Tian’s gaze abruptly went cold.
The cold smile on the corners of Yuan Wu’s mouth that curled up when he originally saw Duan Ling Tian actually daring fight head on with him, quickly froze, and his eyes emitted dense terror.
And Yuan Wu’s expression stopped at this moment forever.
The grade eight spirit sword in Duan Ling Tian’s hand used the overbearing Quake Energy to directly blast the grade seven spirit sword in Yuan Wu’s hand flying…
Right when the palm on the hand Yuan Wu used to grasp his sword split open, and fresh blood dripped out.
A sword light that one was barely able to catch a glimpse of flashed past Yuan Wu’s throat.
All this only happened in the blink of an eye!
When everyone hadn’t been able to react, the grade eight spirit sword in Duan Ling Tian’s hand turned to intercept the other sword that was only inches away from him.
The owner of this sword was Huo Xin.
Huo Xin hadn’t even had the chance to react to what had happened, when he noticed the grade seven spirit sword in his hand be fiercely knocked away by Duan Ling Tian’s grade eight spirit sword.
Instantly, he felt a terrifying force of vibration transfer towards him form the grade seven spirit sword in his hand.
He didn’t dare hesitate, and directly let go!
Because he could perceive that if he didn’t let go, his arm, even his body, would most like be quaked to the point it shattered…
Even after letting go, his palm still burst open, and fresh blood splattered.
“No!” At practically an instant, when Huo Xin’s thoughts hadn’t even had the time to move on, he saw a strand of sword light flash towards him.
His throat seemed to be forcefully choked by someone, as he wanted to make a noise but was unable to do so…
In the next moment, he felt his throat go cold, and everything before his eyes blurred.
At the instant before his consciousness withered, he only had one remaining thought.
What the heck was that method that Duan Ling Tian exerted earlier?!
The grade eight spirit sword in Duan Ling Tian’s hand flashed, then vanished into thin air, as it was put away by him into his Spatial Ring.
Presently, the Megrez Peak disciples with somewhat weaker strength and slightly inferior eyesight, only saw a flash before their eyes, then the throats of Huo Xin and Yuan Wu spouted out a line of blood that scattered down.
The Megrez Peak disciples with stronger strengths were instead able to clearly see that along with a line of blood appearing on Yuan Wu’s throat, in practically the blink of an eye, a line of blood appeared on Huo Xin’s throat as well.
It was difficult for them to imagine how the speed of a grade eight spirit sword in the hands of a fourth level Origin Core Stage martial artist could actually be swift to this extent!
“How could this be possible?!” Zhao Lin’s pupils constricted, as he looked at the scene before him with disbelief.
As the one and only Void Prying Stage martial artist present, he naturally clearly saw every detail when Duan Ling Tian attacked with his sword…
“Such sword speed… How could a fourth level Origin Core Stage martial artist possibly exert it? Moreover, he actually used the strength of 72 ancient mammoths to completely suppress Huo Xin and Yuan Wu’s strength of 76 ancient mammoths, knocking both their swords flying!” Zhao Lin’s breathing became hurried. He was inexplicably excited in his heart and his eyes emitted a flowing light of greed. “Looks like the Duan Ling Tian’s moves ought to be related to the cultivation method he cultivates, the Muscle Meridian Rebirth Scroll!”
On the life and death arena, Yuan Wu and Huo Xin’s bodies crashed onto the ground one after the other, emitting a heavy sound.
When these two sounds entered into the ears of the Megrez Peak disciples that surrounded the life and death arena, it caused them to be as if jolted awake from their dreams and completely recovered them from their earlier shock.
Subsequently, an uproar rose as expected.
“Oh my god! Duan Ling Tian actually killed Senior Brother Yuan Wu and Senior Brother Huo Xin!”
“He used a grade eight spirit sword, and it was only the strength of 72 ancient mammoths… Senior Brother Huo Xin and Senior Brother Yuan Wu used grade seven spirit swords, and the offensive strength of any one of them was comparable to the strength of 76 ancient mammoths! How the heck did Duan Ling Tian do it?”
“This is completely not logical!”
“Could it be that what he cultivated is an Earth Rank sword skill?”
“Earth Rank sword skill? Do you think it’s possible? Who doesn’t know that an Earth Rank sword skill is only able to be cultivated by a Void Prying Stage expert that has comprehended Force…? He’s an Origin Core Stage martial artist, how could he cultivate an Earth Rank sword skill?”
“Senior Brother Huo Xin and Senior Brother Yuan Wu’s sword skills were both high grade Profound Rank sword skills at the Perfection Stage… But even then, they still died at Duan Ling Tian’s hand. I’m afraid only Duan Ling Tian himself knows how he kill those two senior brothers.”
The gazes of the Megrez Peak disciples that surrounded the life and death arena descended onto the proud and aloof figure on the life and death arena.
These gaze were either dumbstruck, shocked, full of veneration or adoration…
The words that Duan Ling Tian spoke earlier and were ridiculed by them, couldn’t help but reverberate by their ears.
“In a move, you two will surely die!” At the beginning, no one believed it.
But now, Duan Ling Tian instead used his strength to prove that what he’d said wasn’t nonsense!
