Chapter 312: Monster
Translator: KurazyTolanzuraytor Editor: Jay
The 81 sword images that were exactly similar whistled as they approached, causing Duan Ling Tian to feel a trace of pressure as well.
Of course, it was only a trace.
“This sword skill is slightly interesting… It would be difficult for an ordinary person to see through.” After merging with the lifetime of memories of the Rebirth Martial Emperor, it was equivalent to being in possession of the lifetime worth of abundant experience in the martial arts of the Rebirth Martial Emperor, thus with only a glance, Duan Ling Tian was able to discern the how formidable this sword skill of Shi Hao’s was.
This sword skill stressed on transforming the real into the false, and the false into the real.
With the naked eye of an ordinary person, it was utterly impossible to identify which sword image amongst the 81 sword imagines was real.
“But, to me who’s an inscription master and knows how to utilize Spiritual Force… Even though this sword skill isn’t bad, but it’s unable to hide before me.” Duan Ling Tian thought in his heart and a wisp of a smile appeared on the corners of his mouth.
He had to admit, the sword skill Shi Hao executed was extremely strong.
Moreover, he was able to discern that this sword skill was extremely difficult to cultivate, let alone cultivate to the Perfection Stage…
This sword skill would have provided quite a contribution for Shi Hao to become the number one in the outer court and suppress the group of seventh level Origin Core Stage outer court disciples.
“Die!” Shi Hao’s gaze went cold, accompanied by his figure flashing out, the 81 sword images surrounded Duan Ling Tian, and seemed to transform into incomparably swift flowing lights that pierced towards Duan Ling Tian from every direction.
Even until now, not one of the 81 sword images had revealed even the slightest inkling!
This was also the point of the Nine-Nine Sword Technique that was terrifying.
“Deliberately mystifying!” Duan Ling Tian’s Spiritual Force flashed out, and easily found the location of the true sword within the 81 sword imaged.
He abruptly turned around, and his gaze went slightly cold.
Sword Drawing Arts!
Duan Ling Tian made his move, a sword strike that shot out like a bolt of lightning!
The incomparably swift sword light quickly found the location of the true sword within the 81 sword images within the Nine-Nine Sword Technique Shi Hao executed…
The two grade seven spirit swords directly clashed, and emitted an ear piercing sound of iron weapons clashing together.
“Impossible!” The hand that grasped his sword shook, and it caused Shi Hao’s face to go grim. Instantly, his triangular eyes emitted a sheen of disbelief.
No matter what, he’d never imagined that Duan Ling Tian was actually able to see through his sword skill, see through the location of the true sword strike within the 81 sword images, and make a move to block his sword strike in time…
After all, since he’d cultivated the Nine-Nine Sword Technique to the perfection stage, not one of the Seven Star Sword Sect outer court disciples could see through it.
It could be said that the Nine-Nine Sword Technique was the foundation that allowed him to be undefeatable in the outer court.
And now, his biggest reliance was seen through?
“Luck, it’s surely luck!” Shi Hao was unwilling to believe that Duan Ling Tian had the ability to see through his sword skill, his state of mind quickly eased up, and was in time to grasp his grade seven spirit sword tightly.
Luck was only a part of one’s strength.
The biggest thing that one’s strength relied on was still formidable power, all-conquering power!
Shi Hao’s hideous and distorted face revealed a sense of madness.
Instantly, Origin Energy suddenly increased explosively on the sword in Shi Hao’s hand that was in a stalemate with the sword in Duan Ling Tian’s hand, and it revealed a formidable and matchless strength…
The strength of 127 ancient mammoths fully exploding forth!
The terrifying strength flowed along the grade seven spirit sword to whistle out, desiring to blast Duan Ling Tian and his sword flying.
At this moment, Shi Hao seemed to have already seen the scene of Duan Ling Tian being blasted flying before being pursued and killed by him…
His face revealed a mad and ferocious smile.
“Want to use strength to suppress me?” Duan Ling Tian’s hand shook as he felt a formidable strength transmit over, instantly suppressing the strength on his grade seven spirit sword.
He guessed Shi Hao’s intention, his face went cold, and a wisp of disdain appeared on the corners of his mouth.
Suddenly, Duan Ling Tian willed in his heart.
Instantly, the Origin Energy on Duan Ling Tian’s grade seven spirit sword fluxed in an unrestrained manner, and vibrated at an extremely high frequency…
This frequency was still ceaselessly increasing!
Om! Om! Om! Om! Om!
The Origin Energy on the grade seven spirit sword vibrated at an incomparably high frequency, but not a single person present was able to notice it.
Even the Mizar Peak’s Peak Master, Zheng Fan, only shook his head and sighed when he saw Shi Hao exploding out, as he didn’t have any expectations towards Duan Ling Tian…
“What a waste of a peerless genius.” Zheng Fan shook his head, a wisp of a bitter smile appeared on the corners of his mouth as he sighed.
Since it was a life and death competition, he naturally wouldn’t interfere.
A man was nothing without his word.
Not to mention that this was a life and death competition, so it wasn’t just the credibility of himself, but it was related to the credibility of the entire Seven Star Sword Sect…
As a top sect within the Azure Forest Imperial Kingdom, the Seven Star Sword Sect always complied with being credible, and only because of this could the sect have a foothold for thousands of years.
This was the foundation of the Seven Star Sword Sect as well.
“Ah!” Right at this moment, Zheng Fan heard a shrill cry sound out, and it pierced his ear drums to the point they trembled.
For a moment, he instinctively thought that it was Duan Ling Tian who emitted the shrill cry.
But in next to no time, he seemed to have noticed something and his figure suddenly trembled.
This isn’t the voice of Duan Ling Tian!
When he raised his head and saw the faraway scene, his eyes instantly sprung wide open!
At this moment, it wasn’t only Zheng Fan, even the group of Mizar Peak outer court disciples and the crowd of Seven Star Sword Sect outer court disciples that were present, their eyes sprang wide open as well, as they stared blankly as the faraway scene, and their faces were covered with an expression of disbelief…
How could this be possible?!
“Scoundrel.” Li Fei heaved a sigh of relief when she saw this scene, and she smiled like a flower.
“Trash!” Hu Xue Feng’s face was gloomy, and his eyes narrowed into a line as a cold light flashed within, then he spat out a word in disdain.
In the first combat ring.
The hand that Shi Hao held his sword with had split open, and fresh blood scattered.
As for his grade seven spirit sword, it had already been sent flying, and dropped on the ground in the distance with a clang…
A layer of fresh blood could be vaguely seen to have tainted the hilt of the sword, and the fresh blood formed red roses as it dripped onto the combat ring.
“No… Impossible! What is that…?” Shi Hao shuddered, and his hideous and distorted features were covered in terror as he stared at the young man that stood before him. He had an expression of disbelief, he was even unable to speak properly, and his speech wasn’t smooth.
After Duan Ling Tian used the Quake Energy to suppress Shi Hao and make him abandon his sword, Duan Ling Tian’s kick flashed out, his leg moved like a bolt of lightning, with Origin Energy that increased explosively and raged.
Quake Energy appeared once again!
His leg swept out, and descended onto the arm Shi Hao swung out in an attempt to block his kick…
The terrifying Quake Energy poured out!
“Ah!” Shi Hao felt a terrifying quaking energy come from his arm, this was an extremely terrifying energy that vibrated at an increasing frequency, practically affecting the flesh, blood, and bones in his entire body, causing his face to go ghastly pale, and the Origin Energy within his body was difficult to utilize.
Moreover at the moment that Shi Hao stood there and ceaselessly dances about, and caused all the people present in the crowd to not know what was happening.
Duan Ling Tian’s sword swung out!
He didn’t utilize a sword skill, and a straightforward and direct sword strike flashed straight out.
The Origin Energy in Shi Hao’s body was currently being affected by the Quake Energy now, so he was utterly unable to utilize it, let alone obstruct Duan Ling Tian’s sword strike.
A strand of blood bloomed like a flower, and the peerlessly swift and fierce sword strike directly entered into Shi Hao’s chest, penetrating through his body and coming out the other end.
Shi Hao’s body that was quaked to the point it was limp and powerless, shook, he then looked at the young man before him with a lax gaze and an expression of disbelief. He struggled wanting to say something. “No… im… pos…”
In the end, Shi Hao didn’t finish what he wanted to say, as he directly collapsed with a pair of triangular eyes that were sprung wide open.
A blast of dust surged to suffuse into the air on the first combat ring.
Shi Hao, the number one disciple in the Seven Star Sword Sect’s outer court…
Duan Ling Tian coldly swept his gaze at Shi Hao who lay there with his triangular eyes sprung wide open, and the corners of his mouth curled into a cold smile, then he put away his grade seven spirit sword.
Of course, he didn’t forget to put away Shi Hao’s grade seven spirit sword and Spatial Ring…
These were all his spoils.
And at practically the exact instant that Shi Hao’s corpse crashed onto the ground, the Mizar Platform was deathly silent.
Besides Li Fei whose face revealed a smile of joy, the other people were all stupefied to the spot, and they seemed as if their throat were choked by someone, as their faces flushed red and couldn’t make a sound for a long time…
The shock from the scene before them was just too great!
As far as they were concerned, Duan Ling Tian who should have been killed by Shi Hao, actually relied on the strength of a mere 101 ancient mammoths to reveal a shocking reversal, and kill Shi Hao instead!
At this moment, it was as if there were roaring torrents within their hearts, torrent that wouldn’t calm down even after a long time.
Finally, Zheng Fan was the first to recover from his shock, and his burning gaze descended onto Duan Ling Tian…
If this gaze could light a flame ablaze, then perhaps it could light Duan Ling Tian ablaze.
“Such a monster has actually appeared in my Seven Star Sword Sect… Merely a little over 20 and possessing a cultivation at the sixth level of the Origin Core Stage. I’ll just leave all this at that! But, he actually relied on the strength of 101 ancient mammoths to kill Shi Hao who exerted his full strength, a strength of 127 ancient mammoths!
“Even in the entire inner court, Shi Hao’s Nine-Nine Sword Technique was something that the sword skill of very few inner court disciples were able to compare to… But, he instead saw through it with a single glance! Even a Nascent Soul Stage martial artist might not be able to easily see through Shi Hao’s Nine-Nine Sword Technique!”
Presently, it wasn’t just Zheng Fan who was excited, even the crowd of Seven Star Sword Sect disciples all had excited expressions…
Such a monster appearing within the Seven Star Sword Sect, was undoubtedly significant to the Seven Star Sword Sect.
They could imagine that after another few years, this monster would surely be able to compare to figures like the Azure Forest Imperial Kingdom’s five great young masters…
No, perhaps he would even surpass the Azure Forest Imperial Kingdom’s five great young masters!
For a moment, all the Seven Star Sword Sect disciples that were present looked at Duan Ling Tian with burning gazes…
Even though the Seven Star Sword Sect was the strongest top sect within the Azure Forest Imperial Kingdom, but the younger generations for these past few years weren’t really outstanding, and were far inferior to the five great young masters whose fame had spread far and wide.
Now, the Seven Star Sword Sect’s younger generation urgently needed a true young expert, a young expert that was able to compete with the five great young masters!
They saw hope in Duan Ling Tian.
“Abnormal!” He Dong stared blankly at Duan Ling Tian’s location, and only after some time, he spat out a word.
