Chapter 304: Winner In Life
Translator: KurazyTolanzuraytor Editor: Jay
Early in the morning the next day, Duan Ling Tian bathed in mountain dew before leaving the Megrez Peak’s mountain peak.
It was the first time Duan Ling Tian had gone to Mizar peak, so he didn’t know its location.
However, after he’d arrived at the main peak, Dubhe Peak, he could see the flowing stream of people moving towards a direction…
He understood in his heart that these people were surely heading towards the Mizar Peak’s Platform.
So he followed the stream of people and walked over.
On the way, he could hear various discussions.
“I never expected that the outer court martial competition this time would actually have its rules changed, and stopped the restriction that only outer court disciples who had entered the Seven Star Sword Sect for less than three years are able to participate.”
“Yeah, I originally thought that I’m at the fifth level of the Origin Core Stage after all, and ought to be able to pass the first round of the outer court martial competition… But now that the rules have been changed, the disciples that advanced from the first round of the outer court martial competition are either at the sixth level of the Origin Core Stage or the seventh level of the Origin Core Stage.”
“Now that the rules have changed, the first place of the outer court martial competition this time would surely be the Alioth Peak’s Senior Brother Shi Hao without a doubt.”
“That might not be the case. Don’t you forget the Megrez Peak’s Senior Brother He Dong, the Alkaid Peak’s Senior Sister Zuo Qing, and the Merak Peak’s Senior Brother Hu Xue Feng. Their strengths aren’t inferior to Senior Brother Shi Hao…”
“I heard that a while ago, the Merak Peak’s Senior Brother Hu Xue Feng had a grade seven spirit sword that amplifies strength by 29% bestowed upon him by his master, the Peak Master of Merak Peak!”
“What?! A grade seven spirit sword that provides an amplification of 29%? Are you sure?”
Grade seven spirit sword that provides an amplification of 29%?
Duan Ling Tian walked on the chain bridge that lead to Mizar Peak, and was slightly moved when he heard the discussion of the Seven Star Sword Sect outer court disciples that passed by.
The higher the grade of a spirit weapon, the more difficult it was to refine.
That time at the Crimson Sky Kingdom’s Swallow Mountain County’s County City, he had a life wager by weapons refinement with the second elder of the Zhu Clan.
The Zhu Clan’s second elder being able to refine a grade eight spirit weapon capable of providing an amplification of 19% was already extremely hard to come by…
It could be considered as top quality amongst the grade eight spirit weapons!
Whereas a grade seven spirit weapon being able to provide an amplification of 29% was even harder to come by than the former!
“Even if it’s me, when my cultivation steps into the seventh level of the Origin Core Stage and I become a grade seven weapons craftsman… At most I would be able to refine a grade seven spirit weapon with an amplification of 31%. And if I were to go all out, I could refine a grade eight spirit weapon with an amplification of 22% now.”
So Duan Ling Tian deeply knew how hard it was to come by a grade seven spirit sword that provided an amplification of 29%.
“I never expected that there’s a weapons craftsman capable of refining a grade seven spirit sword which provides an amplification of 29% in this tiny Azure Forest Imperial Kingdom.”
Duan Ling Tian couldn’t help but be slightly surprised in his heart.
In next to no time, the discussions of those people once again entered Duan Ling Tian’s ears.
“Allegedly, the Peak Master of Merak Peak specially headed to Darkstone Empire and asked a great weapons craftsman there to refine it for Senior Brother Hu Xue Feng…”
“Even if it’s the Darkstone Empire, a great weapons craftsman capable of refining a grade seven spirit sword that provides an amplification of 29% is surely not a nobody!”
“I’d long since heard that the Peak Master of Merak Peak was extremely fond of Senior Brother Hu Xue Feng, but I never imagined that he was fond of Senior Brother Hu Xue Feng to such an extent.”
“With that grade seven spirit sword to rely on, the strength of Senior Brother Hu Xue Feng has surely increased a lot.”
Duan Ling Tian came to a sudden understanding.
So it turned out that the grade seven spirit sword that provided an amplification of 29% was refined by a weapons craftsman of the Darkstone Empire.
If the Crimson Sky Kingdom was the subordinate kingdom of the Azure Forest Imperial Kingdom.
Then the Azure Forest Imperial Kingdom is the subordinate kingdom of the Darkstone Empire.
This was something that Duan Ling Tian had knowledge of.
But, even then, it still caused Duan Ling Tian to be surprised.
According to the memories of Rebirth Martial Emperor, even in the ‘Foreign Lands,’ weapons craftsmen capable of refining grade seven spirit swords that provide an amplification of 29% were rarely seen.
Duan Ling Tian could be sure that weapons craftsman surely had his own unique originality.
Before long, Duan Ling Tian had followed the stream of people to arrive at Mizar Peak and arrived at his destination the Mizar Platform in the end.
The Mizar Platform of Mizar Peak was similar to the Megrez Peak’s Megrez Platform, and was an extremely vast platform that had 10 spacious combat rings atop it.
At the Megrez Platform yesterday, there were only Megrez Peak disciples, thus although there were many people, it didn’t seem crowded.
But today, on this Mizar Platform, streams of people surged, causing it to be difficult for one to move a single step.
“Duan Ling Tian!” Suddenly, a voice sounded into his hears, causing Duan Ling Tian to be unable to help from turning his head to look behind him.
It was an extremely unfamiliar Seven Star Sword Sect outer court disciple that had greeted him.
“You are?” Duan Ling Tian didn’t recognize this outer court disciple.
“Duan Ling Tian, I’m a disciple of Megrez Peak. On the Megrez Platform yesterday, that sword strike of yours that was as if being assisted by the gods was too formidable.” This Megrez Peak disciple had an excited expression when he saw Duan Ling Tian actually replying to him.
Duan Ling Tian was stunned, then returned a smile.
“Duan Ling Tian?”
“He’s Duan Ling Tian?”
“The Megrez Peak’s Little Freak, Duan Ling Tian?”
Duan Ling Tian noticed that along with the Megrez Peak disciples greeting him, for a moment, the surrounding crowd of Seven Star Sword Sect outer court disciples kept a good distance from him as they surrounded him and sized him up.
“He’s at most a little over 20.”
“It’s he who killed the Phecda Peak’s sixth level Origin Core Stage outer court disciple, Shao Ying?”
All the Seven Star Sword Sect outer court disciples’ words were filled with interest towards Duan Ling Tian.
Duan Ling Tian frowned, as he didn’t like this sort of feeling.
“Scoundrel!” Suddenly, a voice that was moving like the voice of an oriole sounded in Duan Ling Tian’s ears.
He’d only heard the voice, and not seen the owner, but Duan Ling Tian already knew who it was.
Duan Ling Tian’s slightly stiff face emitted a trace of a light smile as he walked out of the crowd in large strides.
Perhaps it was because the surrounding people knew of Duan Ling Tian’s identity and were afraid, so the crowd of people automatically opened up a path wherever Duan Ling Tian passed.
Duan Ling Tian arrived outside the Mizar Platform and looked at Li Fei who stood there with a happy expression, and his eyes were filled with tender love. “Little Fei.”
“Duan Ling Tian, I thought Junior Sister was seeing things when she said she saw you earlier.” A delicate and beautiful woman by Li Fei’s side smiled mischievously.
“Senior Sister, what’re you talking about?” Li Fei’s face instantly blushed from embarrassment.
“Senior Sister.” Duan Ling Tian looked at the woman and lightly smiled as he greeted, and in his heart he was secretly shocked.
Earlier, he only knew that Little Fei’s Senior Sister was called Zuo Qing.
But on the way here earlier, he instead heard many outer court disciples mentioning Zuo Qing, and their discussions places Zuo Qing at a position in the Seven Star Sword Sect’s outer court to be merely inferior to the number one disciple in the Seven Star Sword Sect’s outer court, Shi Hao.
Placed side by side with the Megrez Peak’s He Dong and the Merak Peak’s He Xue Feng.
Only at that time did he realize how extraordinary this Senior Sister Zuo Qing was.
Zuo Qing looked at Duan Ling Tian and returned a smile.
The young man before her was the man of her Junior Sister, and under the extension of her love for Li Fei, she didn’t take Duan Ling Tian to be an outsider.
“It’s Senior Sister Zuo Qing!” Before long, many Seven Star Sword Sect outer court disciples on the Mizar Platform recognized Zuo Qing and exclaimed out in surprise.
“The Junior Sister by Senior Sister Zuo Qing’s side is so beautiful!”
“Too beautiful! Breathtakingly beautiful!”
“One smile to overthrow a city, two to overthrow a kingdom, it’s nothing more than that.”
The gazes of all the Seven Star Sword Sect outer court disciples descended onto Li Fei who was beside Zuo Qing.
To them, Li Fei was really too beautiful!
Even though there were many female disciples within the Seven Star Sword Sect, but there was practically no female disciples that had a peerless appearance like Li Fei.
In terms of cultivation, females were born weaker than males, so outstanding female disciples in the Martial Dao was extremely rare.
And a female disciple that was outstanding in both the Martial Dao and appearance was one in a million!
Thus, when the crowd of Seven Star Sword Sect outer court disciples saw such a beauty in the Seven Star Sword Sect, they slightly forgot themselves.
“Hmm?” Even though everyone loved beauty, but now that so many burning gazes descended onto Li Fei, it still caused Duan Ling Tian to be displeased.
Duan Ling Tian extended his hand to grab onto Li Fei’s jade-like hand domineeringly and pulled Li Fei to his side.
As if he was announcing his ownership of Li Fei.
“Scoundrel!” Li Fei’s beautiful face blushed from being pulled over by Duan Ling Tian like this in public, and her pink cheeks seemed as if they would break with a flick of the finger, causing the crowd of Seven Star Sword Sect outer court disciples on the Mizar Platform to be dumbstruck.
But, the strand of indistinct happiness within Li Fei’s watery beautiful eyes was extremely obvious.
Instantly, the Seven Star Sword Sect outer court disciples that recovered from their shock, shot killer gazes at Duan Ling Tian, wishing for nothing more than to kill Duan Ling Tian and take his place.
“A drop dead gorgeous Junior Sister had finally appeared in our Seven Star Sword Sect, but I never imagined that someone had already outstripped everyone else!”
“This Duan Ling Tian is simple a winner in life! Not only is his natural talent in the Martial Dao shocking, but he’s actually able to obtain the favor of this Junior Sister.”
“Anyway, I’m afraid only a man like Duan Ling Tian deserves this Junior Sister.”
The undisguised discussion of the Seven Star Sword Sect male outer court disciples caused Li Fei’s bright red blush to grow deeper.
“Little Fei, has Ke Er returned?” Duan Ling Tian didn’t pay attention to the jealous and envious gazes from the surroundings, and looked at Li Fei as he asked with slight anticipation.
Li Fei shook her head. “I asked Master yesterday. Master said the Peak Master and Ke Er haven’t returned… Looks like Little Sister Ke Er won’t be able to make it for the outer court martial competition this time.”
Duan Ling Tian lightly nodded.
Before long, Duan Ling Tian who only had Li Fei in his eyes seemed to have noticed something, and his expression froze. “Little Fei, you… broke through?”
Li Fei’s angelic face had a light smiled. “I broke through a few days ago.”
“Duan Ling Tian, you have to work hard. Junior Sister has caught up to you now.” Zuo Qing looked at Duan Ling Tian at the right moment, and joked.
A few days ago when she found out Li Fei had broken through, Zuo Qing was extremely shocked…
After all, her Junior Sister had just broken through to the fourth level of the Origin Core Stage three months ago.
And it’s only been three months, but her Junior Sister actually broke through again!
Breaking through to the fifth level of the Origin Core Stage!
