“Make it difficult for you?” Zheng Song couldn’t help but laugh when he heard Liu Shi Ge, then he swept Liu Shi Ge with his indifferent gaze. “Liu Shi Ge, you seem to think too highly of yourself? Do you think you’re worthy?”
Liu Shi Ge took a deep breath and slowly suppressed the rage in his heart.
The person before him was far from something Duan Ling Tian could compare to… Moreover, not to mention Zheng Song’s own strength was much more formidable than his, Zheng Song’s father was even the Peak Master of Mizar Peak. An existence that even the clan behind him was unable to offend.
“Since you aren’t making it difficult for me, then it couldn’t be better.” Liu Shi Ge’s figure flashed out, wanting to go around Zheng Song and head down Dubhe Peak.
Unexpectedly, Zheng Song’s figure flashed out to follow him like a shadow, causing him to be unable to move a single inch.
“Zheng Song, don’t go too far!” Liu Shi Ge was eventually unable to endure it any longer, and his eyes squinted as he glared at Zheng Song.
He wasn’t willing to miss this chance to kill Duan Ling Tian, as once he missed this opportunity, he didn’t know when the next time he would find such a good opportunity would be.
With Duan Ling Tian’s natural talent in the Martial Dao, once Duan Ling Tian matured in the future, surpassing him was only a matter of time!
He could imagine that when Duan Ling Tian had grown to a point that had surpassed him, Duan Ling Tian would surely seek revenge… At that time, he would be completely in a passive position.
So, he had to kill Duan Ling Tian before he was able to grow, because only in this way would he be able to wipe off any future trouble and allow himself to have no worries.
“What? Liu Shi Ge, you want to fight me?” Zheng Song’s eyes squinted as he glared at Liu Shi Ge with a faint smile on his face. From beginning until the end, his expression was calm, as if he didn’t take Liu Shi Ge seriously at all.
“Zheng Song, I, Liu Shi Ge, will remember today’s incident!” When he realized it would be impossible for him to pursue Duan Ling Tian and kill the weed by the roots today, Liu She Ge gritted his teeth as he left some words of retaliation before turning around and heading up Dubhe Peak.
The disdain appeared on the corners of Zheng Song’s mouth as he gazed at Liu Shi Ge’s disappearing figure.
Outside the Seven Star Sword Sect, towards the direction heading to Black Bamboo City.
The figure that dashed like the wind seemed to have transformed into a gale as it swept towards the two Ferghana Horses that were galloping at full speed.
This person that was swiftly flying forward was a middle aged man, and as he dashed forward, 2,000 ancient mammoth silhouettes seemed to condense into form above him…
His cultivation was extremely obvious.
First level of the Void Prying Stage!
A wisp of a complacent smile appeared on the corners of the middle aged man’s mouth when he saw the Ferghana Horses getting closer and closer, his eyes revealing a burning desire. “The Muscle Meridian Rebirth Scroll is mine!”
However, in the next moment, the smile that had only just appeared on the corners of the middle aged man’s mouth had frozen.
It was only because an even swifter sound of wind sounded out in his years, and before he could even react to it, he’d noticed that a figure had surpassed him in the blink of an eyes, and the figure stopped in the distance.
Although he was shocked by this person’s cultivation, the middle aged man had no attention of paying any attention to the person. His figure flashed, intending to go around this person.
“Zhao Lin!” Right at this moment, a voice that was like a thunderclap and contained thick Origin Energy mixed within it had pierced into Zhao Lin’s ears, causing the vital energy and blood in Zhao Lin’s body to roil, and Zhao Lin didn’t dare continue dashing forward.
After Zhao Lin stopped, he was only able to ease up his trembling internal organs slightly after taking a deep breath.
Zhao Lin gazed in terror at the person who had his back towards him. “Who are you?”
Finally, the person who had his back towards Zhao Lin slowly turned around, revealing his real appearance.
“It’s you!” Zhao Lin’s face went grim when he saw the appearance of the person, as he’d never imagined that the person who would obstruct him would be this person.
The Peak Master of Mizar Peak, Zheng Fan!
“Peak Master Zheng Fan, what is the meaning of this?” Zhao Lin’s face sank and he spoke with a questioning tone.
Zhao Lin, the outer court disciple of Megrez Peak, wasn’t afraid in the slightest when facing the Peak Master of Mizar Peak, Zheng Fan.
Zheng Fan glanced at Zhao Lin with a calm gaze as he slowly said, “Elder Zhao Lin, please go back.”
“Zheng Fan, are you hell bent on interfering in my matters?” Zhao Lin looked at Zheng Fan and directly addressed Zheng Fan by name, and a fierce light flickered in his eyes as he said in a deep voice, “Zheng Fan, don’t forget who my grandfather is!”
“Haha…” Zheng Fan couldn’t refrain from laughing when he heard Zhao Lin. “Elder Zhao Lin, I’m extremely curious, do you dare tell Elder Ming of your current actions?”
“You!!” Zhao Lin’s face went grim as his weak point was grabbed by Zheng Fan and he was slightly angry from embarrassment.
Zheng Fan looked at the direction of Dubhe Peak as he slowly said, “Elder Zhao Lin, please.”
Zhao Lin’s gaze descended into the distance, and those two Ferghana Horses had already completely vanished from his field of vision…
He understood in his heart that now, not to mention Zheng Fan interfering in this matter, even if Zheng Fan wasn’t interfering, he still might not be able to catch up to his target.
“Hmph!” Zhao Lin coldly swept Zheng Fan with his gaze, then turned around and headed back towards the Seven Star Sword Sect’s Dubhe Peak.
Zheng Fan followed him and flowing lights flashed within Zheng Fan’s eyes.
His thoughts seemed as if it had returned to yesterday…
“Peak Master, I have something that I want to ask for your help with.”
“Speak, so long as it’s within my ability, then I absolutely won’t refuse.”
“I intend to leave the Seven Star Sword Sect tomorrow, but I’m worried that someone will want to harm me. I hope that Peak Master is able to help me leave safely… Duan Ling Tian owes Peak Master a debt of gratitude.”
“It’s only a small matter, I agree to your request.”
“Thank you, Peak Master.”
Flowing lights flashed within Zheng Fan’s eyes and his heart was filled with wonder.
How the heck did that little fellow offend Zhao Lin?
Zhao Lin was only a first level Void Prying Stage outer court elder, and he thought nothing of Zhao Lin.
However, the person behind Zhao Lin was someone that even he who had already broken through to the Void Initiation Stage now, and him he still felt reverence and fear towards.
Duan Ling Tian and Li Fei were side by side as they spurred their Ferghana Horses forward, quickly arriving at Black Bamboo City to meet up with Xiong Quan. After they changed into casual clothes, they were prepared to head towards the location of Solitary Summit.
The Solitary Summit was extremely far away from the Seven Star Sword Sect, and this time Duan Ling Tian had made sufficient preparations to make a long journey.
According to Xiong Quan, it would require spending almost five months to arrive at Solitary Summit from here…
In other words, it would be nearly one year for a return journey.
Of course, this was only the time estimated by Xiong Quan.
When Duan Ling Tian’s group of three spurred their horses to gallop violently and endured the hardships of an arduous journey, it had only been four months when they arrived nearby Solitary Summit.
“Xiong Quan, how far is Solitary Summit from here?” After hurrying along on their journey for four months, Duan Ling Tian was worn out from the journey, and slight exhaustion was mixed within between his brows.
He hadn’t rested properly throughout these four months.
He’d cultivated as they hurried on their journey.
At the same time that a Ferghana Horse was extremely swift when travelling, it was also extremely stable. So it didn’t stop Duan Ling Tian from cultivating while travelling.
Xiong Quan gazed at the surroundings and said slowly, “Young Master, we’ll be there soon. It’s at most another half day’s ride away.”
Although Xiong Quan had travelled for four months as well, he was still brimming with energy and vitality. This was something that was entirely different from Duan Ling Tian.
Of course, all of this was because of Xiong Quan’s deep cultivation.
Moreover, during the journey, Xiong Quan’s cultivation that had recovered to the sixth level of the Void Prying Stage had broken through once again, and he’d officially stepped into the ranks of the seventh level of the Void Prying Stage.
Duan Ling Tian nodded then looked at Li Fei who was beside him and equally exhausted. “Little Fei, endure it for a little while longer. We’ll soon be able to rest.”
“Scoundrel, I’m fine.” Li Fei nodded with a strong expression, and it caused Duan Ling Tian’s heart to ache slightly. He even slightly regretted bringing Li Fei along.
Even though all the bandits they’d encountered on the way during these four months had been killed by Xiong Quan and there was no need for them to worry about it, but because of the long term accumulation of the lack of rest, it had caused Duan Ling Tian’s and Li Fei’s bodies and minds to be exhausted…
Fortunately, Li Fei’s cultivation had broken through on the way, otherwise, she might not have been able to persist until now.
Li Fei’s cultivation had broken through, and Duan Ling Tian’s cultivation had similarly broken through as well.
Cultivating and travelling day and night all along the way had allowed Duan Ling Tian’s cultivation to smoothly break through to the eighth level of the Origin Core Stage…
At the same time that they continued on their journey, Duan Ling Tian thought to himself. “Even if I don’t utilize a spirit weapon now, my strength is comparable to the strength of 121 ancient mammoths, and I’m already stronger than ordinary ninth level Origin Core Stage martial artists! Ordinary ninth level Origin Core Stage martial artists only have the strength of 120 ancient mammoths.”
“Moreover, along with my breakthrough to the eighth level of the Origin Core Stage, the Quake Energy has broken through again… The current Quake Energy’s scope of effect has increased to the strength of 70 ancient mammoths!” As he thought up to here, Duan Ling Tian experienced a wave of excitement.
“However, I’m currently still inferior to that Liu Shi Ge!” In next to no time, the excitement on Duan Ling Tian’s face vanished, as if he was splashed with a bucket of cold water, and his eyes flickered with an icy cold brilliance.
Liu Shi Ge!
First level Nascent Soul Stage inner court disciple.
At full strength, Liu Shi Ge’s strength was comparable to the strength of 200 ancient mammoths…. If Liu Shi Ge were to utilize his spirit sword, then his strength would be even more formidable!
“Scoundrel, what are you thinking of?” Suddenly, Li Fei’s voice that was pleasant to the ear resounded, causing Duan Ling Tian to return to his senses.
“Nothing.” Duan Ling Tian shook his head and smiled, the icy coldness within his eyes instantly vanishing without a trace…
He didn’t tell Li Fei about the matter with Liu Shi Ge as he was afraid that Li Fei would be worried.
Duan Ling Tian’s group of three once again travelled for half a day.
They travelled until the scorching sun was setting in the west, and only then did they see a dangerously steep mountain that was like a pillar that held up the heavens in the distance.
This mountain shot up directly into the clouds, and it caused one to be unable to help from being shocked when one laid eyes upon it.
“Young Master, that mountain is the Solitary Summit,” Xiong Quan said to Duan Ling Tian.
Duan Ling Tian nodded, and his gaze slightly moved downwards to descend into the distance…
In the distance, a vast and magnificent ancient city rose up from the ground within this desert, like an enormous beast that was dormant there, stunning the hearts of everyone.
“Xiong Quan, what city is this?” Duan Ling Tian asked curiously.
Li Fei’s beautiful eyes moved slightly, and her gaze descended onto the ancient city in the distance.
“Young Master, this is the Ancient City of Everlast.” Xiong Quan replied respectfully. “The Ancient City of Everlast is the city within the Azure Forest Imperial Kingdom that possesses the longest history… Allegedly, this ancient city already stood within this vast desert before the Azure Forest Imperial Kingdom even existed.”
