The time of ten breaths quickly passed.
However, there was still no one that ascended to the combat ring to battle Duan Ling Tian…
“Such being the case, the first place of today’s outer court martial competition is without suspense, and is Duan Ling Tian.” The voice of the Mizar Peak’s Peak Master, Zheng Fan, was calm as he announced.
Duan Ling Tian had become the deserving first place winner of the outer court martial competition today!
“Duan Ling Tian!”
“Duan Ling Tian!”
“Duan Ling Tian!”
After the Mizar Peak was silent for a moment, it completely went into an uproar.
All the Seven Star Sword Sect outer court disciples had faces that flushed red, as they shouted out Duan Ling Tian’s name in excitement.
They were clear in their hearts that from today onwards, Duan Ling Tian would become a milestone in the Seven Star Sword Sect’s outer court.
The number one disciple in the outer court at only a little over 20!
In the thousands of years of history of the Seven Star Sword Sect, there had never been someone who could obtain such an achievement at this age.
Duan Ling Tian stood there with a carefree expression when faced with the fervent and excited Seven Star Sword Sect outer court disciples, his face seemed as if it wouldn’t change even if Mount Tai were to collapse.
“What a fellow!” Zheng Fan had always been paying attention to Duan Ling Tian, and when he saw Duan Ling Tian being able to be so composed even at this time, he couldn’t help but look even more highly of Duan Ling Tian.
“Duan Ling Tian!” Abruptly, Zheng Fan shouted out, with a voice that suppressed all the Seven Star Sword Sect outer court disicples that were present.
Under the concentrate gazes of all the Seven Star Sword Sect outer court disciples present, Zheng Fan raised his hand and a flowing light flashed out.
Duan Ling Tian became vigilant when he heard Zheng Fan speak, and now when he saw Zheng Fan throwing something over, he hurriedly extended his hand to catch it.
He looked carefully and noticed it was a Spatial Ring.
Meanwhile, Zheng Fan said, “The prize for the first place in the outer court martial competition this time in within this Spatial Ring… Besides prizes that are about the same as the prizes from the previous outer court martial competitions, there’s an additional prize, the Profound Origin Fruit.”
Profound Origin Fruit!
Even though before the outer court martial competition started today, the Seven Star Sword Sect outer court disciples had heard that the Profound Origin Fruit would be the additional prize for the first place in the outer court martial competition this time.
But when it came to the moment the Profound Origin Fruit was really obtained by someone, their hearts were filled with jealousy and envy.
Burning gazes successively shot onto the Spatial Ring in Duan Ling Tian’s hand.
There was a Profound Origin Fruit within it!
“Thank you Peak Master.” Duan Ling Tian nodded with a smile to Zheng Fan, then put away the Spatial Ring in his hand, intending to look at it after he returned.
Duan Ling Tian’s figure flashed out to descend by Li Fei’s side.
“Scoundrel.” A wisp of a smile appeared on Li Fei’s face, as she was happy for Duan Ling Tian being able to obtain the first place in the outer court martial competition.
This was her man, her, Li Fei’s, man!
Duan Ling Tian looked at Li Fei, and his sharp gaze turned warm, tender and soft as water… Compared to his appearance when he was battling Shi Hao, he was like a completely different person.
“Tsk tsk… Duan Ling Tian and this Alkaid Peak Junior Sister are a perfect match, a match made in heaven!”
“Yeah, only a young genius like Duan Ling Tian is worthy of this Junior Sister.”
“Truly causing one to feel jealousy and envy.”
The crowd of Seven Star Sword Sect outer court disciples all sighed with emotion.
“Hmph!” Hu Xue Feng’s expression was extremely unsightly.
Earlier, flames of rage arose within his heart when he saw Duan Ling Tian obtaining the Profound Origin Fruit, because as far as he was concerned, that Profound Origin Fruit ought to have been his.
But Duan Ling Tian came out of nowhere and seized away his Profound Origin Fruit!
Disregarding that, now, Duan Ling Tian was actually chatting and joking with this drop dead gorgeous young woman that he coveted, and this caused another evil flame to arise within his heart.
“Duan Ling Tian!” At this moment, Hu Xue Feng hated Duan Ling Tian to the point he gnashed his teeth.
Duan Ling Tian naturally noticed Hu Xue Feng’s gaze, but he completely disregarded it.
Duan Ling Tian’s eyes squinted as he looked towards the faraway Zhao Lin.
Zhao Lin’s eyes were wide open and stared at Duan Ling Tian with his ghastly gaze for some time, then turned around and left the Mizar Platform.
Duan Ling Tian knew from Zhao Lin’s gloomy gaze that in the future, for the sake of obtaining the fictitious Muscle Meridian Rebirth Scroll cultivation method in his possession, Zhao Lin would surely try from every angle possible.
“Zhao Lin!” Infinite flames of rage arose within Duan Ling Tian’s heart towards Zhao Lin’s caseless efforts.
At the same time, besides Duan Ling Tian, the other 9 disciples continued to carry out the competition for their placement in the outer court martial competition.
Even though the first place in the outer court martial competition was seized by Duan Ling Tian, but the higher their placing, the more the prizes that would be obtained, so the other 9 people still spared no effort.
Amongst the 9 seventh level Origin Core Stage outer court disciples, Zuo Qing, He Dong, and Hu Xue Feng were the strongest, and when the three of them fought the other six, it was practically a one sided battle…
Duan Ling Tian was able to perceive that the only reason the three of them were able to firmly suppress the other seventh level Origin Core Stage outer court disciples was because the sword skills they cultivated were much more brilliant.
Just like Zuo Qing’s sword skill, every sword strike moved out freely, like a delicate touch.
He Dong’s sword skill was bold and unconstrained, but concealing killing intent within, causing it to be very difficult for one to guard against it.
Hu Xue Feng’s sword skill had a total of 13 sword strikes, one strike after the other, like overlapping waves, containing boundless might.
The final result.
Hu Xue Feng relied on the grade seven spirit sword that provided a 29% amplification in his possession to exert a strength of 129 ancient mammoths, forcefully suppressing Zuo Qing and He Dong to be obtain the second place in the outer court martial competition this time.
Second only to Duan Ling Tian.
As for the third place in the outer court martial competition, it was obtained by He Dong.
Zuo Qing was fourth place.
Along with Zheng Fan distributing the prizes for the other 9 disciples, his clear voice resounded out. “The outer court martial competition this time has come to an end! Those who didn’t obtain any prizes, don’t be dejected, as you still have a chance next year.”
The outer court martial competition of the Seven Star Sword Sect was held once a year, unchanging no matter what.
“Duan Ling Tian, work hard, and enter the inner court soon… I think highly of you.” Zheng Fan looked at Duan Ling Tian, and his face revealed a warm smile.
Zheng Fan’s attitude caused the group of Mizar Peak outer court elders to be shocked.
As outer court elders of Mizar Peak, they naturally knew the temper of this Peak Master, and even when he was facing an outstanding inner court disciples, he had never once put off his haughty manner and been so amiable before.
“I will.” Duan Ling Tian lightly smiled as he nodded, then held Li Fei’s hand under the envious and jealous gazes of the crowd of Seven Star Sword Sect disciples, to walk shoulder to shoulder with Zuo Qing and leave Mizar Platform.
They followed along the stream of people to arrive nearby the Mizar Peak’s Trade Hall, then stepped onto the chain bridge to leave Mizar Peak.
Duan Ling Tian followed Li Fei to return to her residence, and the pair of man and woman who were caught in a passion once again tangled together with each other for a while, then reluctantly parted.
“Profound Origin Fruit… Once I consume the Profound Origin Fruit, I’ll be able to break through to the seventh level of the Origin Core Stage at this first possible moment! At that time, not only would my strength be comparable to an eighth level Origin Core Stage martial artist, but even the Quake Energy will advance once again.” On the way back to Megrez Peak after leaving Alkaid Peak, Duan Ling Tian’s mood surged.
“Most importantly… Once I break through to the seventh level of the Origin Core Stage, I’ll be able to condense grade seven Pill Fire and grade seven Weapon Flame, and become a grade seven alchemist and grade seven weapons craftsman!” Now, Duan Ling Tian was impatient to return home, and after he stepped onto Dubhe Peak, he walked onto the chain bridge that headed to Megrez Peak and returned to Megrez Peak.
“Senior Brother Duan Ling Tian!”
“Senior Brother Duan Ling Tian!”
Duan Ling Tian had just step foot on the Megrez Peak stone platform when he noticed the crowd of Megrez Peak disciples that he encountered all respectfully greeted him.
In terms of age, all these Megrez Peak disciples were older than him.
But now, they all called him senior brother, calling incomparably fervently.
“In this world where the strong are respected, it’s realistic like this… Strength is the foundation for one to obtain a foothold. When I’d just entered the Seven Star Sword Sect, and just entered Megrez Peak, I was unknown to the public and no one paid attention to me. Now that I’ve seized first place in the outer court martial competition, these people are sticking to me like ulcers growing on the bone.” Duan Ling Tian couldn’t help but sigh emotionally in his heart.
This was a world where the strong were respected, and if one wanted to obtain the respect of others, then one must be sufficiently strong.
Otherwise, one can only become the ant below another’s feet, and let another trample upon them.
The lives of the strong were loftier than the heavens!
The lives of the weak were lowlier than grass!
Duan Ling Tian slightly smiled when faced with the Megrez Peak disciples, then lightly nodded before leaving.
When he left, his heart constricted.
“That Zhao Lin is very likely to be concealed in the shadows, monitoring me… But wanting to follow me isn’t that easy.” Duan Ling Tian took a deep breath when he thought of Zhao Lin’s gloomy gaze from earlier, and he followed along the stream of people as his figure flashed out.
He only appeared on a remote mountain path on Megrez Peak after half an hour.
Only now did Duan Ling Tian dare swagger back to the peak of Megrez Peak, then return to the stalactite cave. “Now I’ll return and consume the Profound Origin Fruit, and my cultivation will break through to the seventh level of the Origin Core Stage in one go!”
Thinking and thinking as he walked on his way, Duan Ling Tian was excited in his heart.
At the same time that Duan Ling Tian arrived at the peak of Megrez Peak, on the side of a mountain path halfway down Megrez Peak.
A palm print that haf condensed into form whistled out to descend onto an enormous rock, instantly, the rock shattered and rubble flew out in all directions.
“He escaped again!” Zhao Lin’s expression was gloomy, and he was flustered and exasperated.
After Duan Ling Tian returned to the peak of Megrez Peak, he leapt downward as usual, letting gravity bring him down through the clouds and mist to descend onto the tilted tree.
But, he had just stepped into the tilted tree went his face went grim.
His Spiritual Force clearly sensed that there seemed to be two formidable auras coming from within the cave passage…
These two formidable auras were extremely terrifying.
In next to no time, he noticed that these two auras came closer and closer, and at the same time, they were accompanied by a light sound of footsteps…
Duan Ling Tian became vigilant and looked towards within the cave passage.
With a glance, Duan Ling Tian was stunned.
Presently, a yellow clothed young girl was walking slowly out of the cave passage.
The young girl was around 15 or 16, with a slightly immature face that was as if carved and chiselled from jade. She had a tiny dimple beside the corner of her mouth, her skin soft and smooth, her smile like a flower, and her appearance beautiful and enchanting.
“Who are you?” The young girl had a fragrant aura of orchids, and the more one looked at her the more beautiful she was, caused one to be reluctant to move one’s gaze from her.
