Chapter 370: The Reason for Everything
Translator: KurazyTolanzuraytor Editor: Jay
“Duan Ling Tian… You’re very good.” The Sect Leader of the Seven Star Sword Sect, Linghu Jin Hong, looked at Duan Ling Tian, and his face that was emotionless and still from the beginning until the end revealed a rare trace of a smile. “I won’t pursue the earlier matter and I’ll drop it right now!”
Drop it right now!
Linghu Jin Hong said this because he obviously didn’t intend to fuss about what happened earlier with Duan Ling Tian.
“Sect Leader.” Zhao Lin’s gaze went slightly cold and he had an unwilling expression. “This Duan Ling Tian…”
Zhao Lin hadn’t finished speaking when he was interrupted by Linghu Jin Hon. “Zhao Lin, are you questioning my decision?”
Linghu Jin Hong’s voice was calm with coldness mixed within, causing Zhao Lin to shudder and shake his head in panic. “Zhao Lin doesn’t dare!”
Meanwhile, a wave of commotion arose on the peak of Dubhe Peak again.
“The Sect Leader really does regard Duan Ling Tian highly, letting it go just like that?”
“Looks like possessing a formidable natural talent in the Martial Dao does indeed provide privilege.”
The words of some Seven Star Sword Sect disciples were filled with extreme envy of Duan Ling Tian.
Presently, the group of people that cared for Duan Ling Tian like Li Fei, Ke Er and the others all heaved a sigh of relief.
As for the people who wished for nothing more than for Duan Ling Tian’s death, like Wu Yong Qian, and Hu Xue Feng, their faces all went gloomy.
“I never expected that this little bastard was saved from destruction!” Hu Xue Feng glanced at Li Fei and Ke Er who followed behind Duan Ling Tian and he gnashed his teeth.
On what basis does this Duan Ling Tian get the favor of so many beauties?
First it was Li Fei.
Now, it’s another young woman whose beauty is not inferior to Li Fei!
Moreover, it’s the personal disciple of the Alkaid Peak’s Peak Master.
For a time, a bellyful of flames of envy and hate that seemed like they could burn through everything arose within Hu Xue Feng.
“Thank you, Sect Leader.” Duan Ling Tian thanked Linghu Jin Hong in a neither humble nor arrogant manner.
Linghu Jin Hong looked at Duan Ling Tian and nodded in admiration, and he thought in his heart. “This Duan Ling Tian is different from the other Seven Star Sword Sect disciples… When the other disciples stand before me, they would be filled with respect and reverence, and wouldn’t even dare breathe heavily.”
Duan Ling Tian however didn’t know that because of his current casualness, he’d caused Linghu Jin Hong to look even more highly of him.
“Sect Leader, you have to give justice to my foster father!” Suddenly, Wu Yong Qian’s voice sounded out, and it was like a wick that completely lit the atmosphere atop the peak of Dubhe Peak ablaze.
Meanwhile, everyone present recovered from their shock.
“The death of the Peak Master of Megrez Peak wouldn’t have really been caused by Duan Ling Tian, right?”
“It’s very unlikely… The Peak Master of Megrez Peak possessed a cultivation at the ninth level of the Void Prying Stage, how could Duan Ling Tian possibly have caused his death?”
“This isn’t necessarily so. Don’t forget the various miracles that Duan Ling Tian has created…”
“Yeah, no matter what miracle, I wouldn’t be surprised so long as it happened on Duan Ling Tian.
“If the death of the Megrez Peak’s Peak Master was really caused by Duan Ling Tian, then no matter how highly the Sect Leader regards Duan Ling Tian, Duan Ling Tian would probably be unable to escape death today.”
The crowd of Seven Star Sword Sect disciples started whispering in discussion again.
At this moment, the gaze Linghu Jin Hong shot at Duan Ling Tian suddenly became fierce and he asked in a deep voice. “Duan Ling Tian, Wu Yong Qian said that you caused the death of the Megrez Peak’s Master… Do you acknowledge your crime?”
Wu Yong Qian looked at Duan Ling Tian in a timely manner with his crimson red eyes, and he seemed to have transformed into a bloodthirsty fierce beast that lay in ambush as it watched Duan Ling Tian.
Ready to pounce at any moment!
“Sect Leader, the death of Peak Master Wu Dao has nothing to do with me, what crime have I committed?” Duan Ling Tian shook his head and flatly denied it.
Although Wu Dao had died because of consuming the Soul Severe Fruit, as far as he was concerned, Wu Dao’s death had nothing to do with him…
If it wasn’t for Wu Dao coveting his method of Origin Energy utilization, he wouldn’t have casually described the characteristics of the Soul Severe Fruit.
Wu Dao finding the Soul Severe Fruit and dying from consuming it was completely Wu Dao’s own misfortune, and it was something Wu Dao brought onto himself!
“Duan Ling Tian, you’re lying!” Wu Yong Qian’s face went gloomy when he heard Duan Ling Tian denying it, and he was almost roaring as he said, “If it wasn’t for you misleading my foster father to look for that venomous fruit, he wouldn’t have consumed it and died of poison… It’s all because of you! You deceived my foster father, and caused him to mistake that fruit to be a spirit fruit that was able to allow his Origin Energy to undergo a change!”
“What actually happened?” Linghu Jin Hong’s sword shaped brows trembled, and his fierce gaze seemed to transform into a sword that flashed straight at Wu Yong Qian, causing Wu Yong Qian’s body to trembled unconsciously and cold sweat to drip out of his forehead.
Wu Yong Qian never mentioned all this earlier, he’d only said that it was Duan Ling Tian who’d caused the death of the Megrez Peak’s Peak Master…
“Allow me.” Duan Ling Tian seized the initiative to look at Linghu Jin Hong and said, “Sect Leader, after Peak Master Wu Dao saw through my secrets that day, he wanted to obtain from me my method of Origin Energy utilization to defeat a stronger opponent…” As he spoke up to here, Duan Ling Tian stopped briefly.
“Origin Energy utilization method?” Linghu Jin Hong’s brows raised and he was slightly surprised.
“Sect Leader, the reason I’m able to defeat a stronger opponent is because my Origin Energy can execute an extremely profound ability! Peak Master Wu Dao had precisely seen through this, so he summoned me and wanted to obtain it from me and take it as his own!” Duan Ling Tian said straightforwardly.
“Hmph!” Wu Yong Qian snorted coldly. “Duan Ling Tian, my foster father wanted to obtain your Origin Energy utilization method that day for the sake of contributing it to the sect… Don’t you make slanderous charges and defame my foster father!”
“Defame?” Duan Ling Tian started laughing and said indifferently, “Wu Yong Qian, I’m truly curious. Do you believe what you just said? If Peak Master Wu Dao wanted to contribute my Origin Energy utilization method to the sect, why didn’t he first report it to the Sect Leader before making a decision?
“Thus it can be seen that he did it for the sake of his own selfish desire!” As Duan Ling Tian finished speaking, he spoke bluntly, without a shred of mercy.
“You!!” Wu Yong Qian’s expression was unsightly. At this moment, he could feel the gazes of doubt that shot towards him from the surroundings.
Obviously, no one believed what he said.
Duan Ling Tian continued. “After that, I told Peak Master Wu Dao of the secret behind my Origin Energy utilization method…”
When Duan Ling Tian spoke up to this point.
Besides Wu Yong Qian, the gazes of practically everyone present had descended onto him.
No matter if it was all the higher-ups of the Seven Star Sword Sect, or the crowd of Seven Star Sword Sect disciples.
At this moment, they were all filled with interest towards the secret behind Duan Ling Tian’s Origin Energy utilization method.
Only because that was the method Duan Ling Tian used to defeat a stronger opponent.
It was Duan Ling Tian’s trump card!
“Duan Ling Tian relied on that type of Origin Energy utilization method to use a ninth level Origin Core Stage cultivation to defeat an inner court disciple at the first level of the Nascent Soul Stage?”
Some of the Seven Star Sword Sect disciples whispered in discussion, and their gazes shone as they stared at Duan Ling Tian.
They could imagine that if they were able to master this ability, their strengths would surely obtain an extremely great improvement.
But they never thought for a moment, if there really was such a miraculous and profound method, would Duan Ling Tian share it?
Under the gazes of everyone present, Duan Ling Tian spoke once again.
“I told Peak Master Wu Dao of the secret behind my Origin Energy utilization method… My Origin Energy had undergone an unusual change because of a spirit fruit I’d encountered while I was in the primeval forest. At that time, after I consumed the spirit fruit, my Origin Energy underwent an unusual change, and it’s because of this that I possess the ability to defeat stronger opponent!”
Duan Ling Tian’s words caused a wave of sighs to echo out.
“So it turns out that Duan Ling Tian consumed a spirit fruit to obtain his bizarre ability!”
“A spirit fruit, especially such a miraculous spirit fruit is a fortuitous encounter that’s difficult to come by, and is difficult to be replicated by another.”
Some of the Seven Star Sword Sect disciples couldn’t help but sigh with emotion.
Duan Ling Tian continued. “After that, I described the characteristics of that spirit fruit to Peak Master Wu Dao… Since I left the Megrez Hall after that, I never saw Peak Master Wu Dao again.”
As he spoke up to this point, Duan Ling Tian looked at Wu Yong Qian and said indifferently, “As for why he slandered me for causing the death of his foster father, I do not know. Hmm, perhaps it’s because I crippled his right arm that day, so he wanted to use this slanderous methods to take revenge…”
“Or perhaps, the death of Peak Master Wu Dao was caused by him! He’s only doing this for the sake of slandering me and for the sake of obtaining Peak Master Wu Dao’s grade six spirit sword, Autumn Water.” As Duan Ling Tian finished speaking, the corners of his mouth curled into a cold smile.
“You’re talking nonsense!” When he heard Duan Ling Tian, Wu Yong Qian’s face became gloomy and the Origin Energy on his body roiled as his body flashed out, seeming to have transformed into a ruthless fierce beast as he pounced towards Duan Ling Tian.
In Wu Yong Qian’s hands, the grade six spirit sword, Autumn Water, appeared once again…
The strength of 160 plus ancient mammoths fully exploded out!
When faced with Wu Yong Qian who approached menacingly, Duan Ling Tian’s gaze was calm as he suddenly raised his hand and a narrow sword appeared out of thin air.
It was a grade six spirit sword as well!
Instantly, Duan Ling Tian attacked.
Sword Drawing Arts!
The two grade six spirit swords collided with each other, and Quake Energy vibrated out from Duan Ling Tian’s hand, forcing Wu Yong Qian to abandon his sword.
At the instant Wu Yong Qian’s sword dropped from his hand.
Duan Ling Tian kicked out, kicking Wu Yong Qian flying to fiercely plunge to the ground in an extremely sorry state…
“I’ll kill you!” Wu Yong Qian struggled to stand up and once again pounced towards Duan Ling Tian.
“Idiot!” Duan Ling Tian’s gaze went slightly cold and killing intent arose within him.
“Hmph!” Right at this moment, a cold snort seemed as if it has sounded out from an icy pit, causing even the air to become slightly solid.
Instantly, Wu Yong Qian who flashed swiftly towards Duan Ling Tian seemed to strangely stop halfway. His body was frozen stiff and didn’t make any movements after a very long time, cold sweat dripping off of his forehead.
“So strong!” Duan Ling Tian’s eye squinted as his heart shook.
The moment Linghu Jin Hong’s imposing manner condensed and flashed out to descend onto Wu Yong Qian, Duan Ling Tian’s acute Spiritual Force had clearly sensed that Linghu Jin Hong had merely used his imposing manner to cause Wu Yong Qian to find it difficult to move at all.
As expected of the Seven Star Sword Sect’s Sect Leader, a Void Initiation Stage expert!
Wu Yong Qian was only able to move after Linghu Jin Hong withdrew his imposing manner, and Wu Yong Qian’s face flushed red as he said agitatedly, “Sect Leader, don’t listen to Duan Ling Tian’s deceitful statements! My foster father died because of poison from the exact spirit fruit that he’d described…”
“He surely did it intentionally, he surely did it intentionally!” As he finished speaking, Wu Yong Qian was slightly hysterical.
Meanwhile, the people present came to a sudden understanding.
So it turned out that this was the reason for everything.
