Chapter 385: Crushed
Translator: KurazyTolanzuraytor Editor: Jay
No one knew that all this was done intentionally by Duan Ling Tian.
He only used a grade seven spirit sword of inferior quality that provided an amplification that was similar to the grade seven spirit saber in the hands of the Mountain Split Sect disciple, as he didn’t want to have an advantage in terms of spirit weapon.
He wanted his opponent to accept the loss wholeheartedly and completely terrorize the Mountain Split Sect disciple with his might.
After experiencing two lifetimes, Duan Ling Tian knew very well that killing a person was easy, but wanting someone to be completely afraid of you and not dare give rise to any thought of going against you was an extremely difficult task.
Presently, what Duan Ling Tian wanted to do was the latter.
Duan Ling Tian wanted to make the Mountain Split Sect disciple completely afraid of him and be terrified whenever they met…
The saber strike that carried that force to split a mountain and the sword strike that was like a flashing bolt of lightning met with each other…
The ear piercing sound of iron colliding echoed out, accompanying the collision of two vast Origin Energies…
Instantly, the collision of Origin Energy affected the air, forming ring after ring of ripples that spread out.
The dust and dirt all over the ground swept out and suffused into the air.
At this moment, besides the few people from the Seven Star Sword Sect, everyone from the other sects, including the Sect Leaders and Elders, couldn’t help but hold their breaths…
They wanted to know who would be the final victor of this head on collision.
In their hearts, they were sided towards that Mountain Split Sect disciple.
After all, the martial skills cultivated by Mountain Split Sect disciples mostly leaned towards raw strength.
Amongst the disciples of the Azure Forest Imperial Kingdom’s five great sects, disciples of the Mountain Split Sect were second to none in terms of brute force…
Allegedly, one thousand years ago, the Founding Ancestor of the Mountain Split Sect was an existence at the Void Interpretation Stage that possessed freakish strength.
Relying only on his extremely strong strength, he was able to slash a vast and continuous mountain range in half with a single slash, and that gorge that was split open with immense force was the current location of the Mountain Split Sect.
That place was originally a Spirit Point that was buried under a vast mountain range that was noticed by the Founding Ancestor of the Mountain Split Sect, and was unearthed from then onwards.
It was precisely because of this that the sect passed down by that Void Interpretation Stage expert was named the Mountain Split Sect.
The ear piercing sound seemed as if it still resounded by the ears of everyone present in the Martial Competition Courtyard.
“Kid, die!” The Mountain Split Sect disciple let out an explosive shout abruptly, the veins on his forehead bulged, and the Origin Energy on the grade seven sprit saber skyrocketed, wishing to dominate the grade seven spirit sword in Duan Ling Tian’s hand.
“Want to kill me? First ask yourself if you have the ability.” Duan Ling Tian had a calm expression when faced with the Mountain Split Sect disciple that had gone berserk, and he seemed to not care in the slightest, staying incomparably composed.
Suddenly, Duan Ling Tian’s gaze went slightly cold and the corners of his mouth curled into an evil smile.
“Not good!” The evil smile that appeared on the corners of Duan Ling Tian’s mouth just happened to be noticed by the Mountain Split Sect disciple. Although he didn’t know why Duan Ling Tian would reveal such a smile at this moment, he unconsciously perceived that he ought to take the initiative and retreat.
But if he were to retreat just like this, then wouldn’t he seem inferior to this Seven Star Sword Sect disciple in the eyes of the others?
Right when the Mountain Split Sect disciple didn’t know what to choose in his heart.
The Origin Energy on the grade seven spirit sword in Duan Ling Tian’s hand abruptly vibrated with a frequency that became higher and higher…
The terrifying Quake Energy flowed out from the grade seven spirit sword in Duan Ling Tian’s hand and poured into the Mountain Split Sect disciples grade seven spirit saber without reservation and in full fury.
Instantly, the Mountain Split Sect disciple went pale.
He could clearly feel the vibrating that came from the sword of this Seven Star Sword Sect disciple before him, and as time passed, this vibration caused his palm to go numb, even his internal organs and entire body seemed to start vibrating with it.
“Let go!” Suddenly, Duan Ling Tian shouted out explosively.
Right at this moment, the Mountain Split Sect disciple whose palm had split open and was dripping blood let go of his spirit saber at the right moment.
The instant he let go of the spirit saber, he could feel the vibrating of his body stop.
At this moment, he had the pleasant sensation as if he’d put down the saber in his hand and achieved ascension.
But he hadn’t even carefully savored this pleasant sensation when he felt a strong wind assault his face, and the wind carried a shocking might of lightning…
“No!!” The Mountain Split Sect disciple only had time to shout out explosively.
Duan Ling Tian use his Quake Energy to dodge the spirit saber the Mountain Split Sect disciple had tossed away, and the spirit sword in Duan Ling Tian’s hand abruptly shook before flashing directly towards the Mountain Split Sect disciple.
“Spare his life!” Right at this moment, the voice transmission of Linghu Jin Hong sounded out in Duan Ling Tian’s ears.
At this moment, besides the people from the Seven Star Sword Sect, there was probably no one that was clear headed…
The others were all dumbstruck by the words ‘let go’ that Duan Ling Tian shouted out earlier.
In the eyes of these people, along with the explosive shout of the Seven Star Sword Sect disciple, that Mountain Split Sect disciple actually really let go and tossed away the grade seven spirit saber in his hand…
This scene was so strange and unbelievable to them!
It was difficult for them to imagine what had happened earlier.
“Demon!” This thought suddenly emerged within the hearts of many disciples of the five great sects, and the gazes they shot at Duan Ling Tian were filled with fear.
Shouting out ‘let go’ explosively and he’s able to make his opponent abandon their weapon?
What ability is this?
It’s too strange!
Of course, there were always many attentive people that noticed the palm of the Mountain Split Sect disciple that had split open and was dripping with blood…
An ear piercing howl of the wind seemed to be exceptionally clear within the silent Martial Competition Courtyard.
At the critical juncture, the spirit sword in Duan Ling Tian’s hand twisted from sword edge to sword body and fiercely slapped onto the Mountain Split Sect disciple’s body.
Under the blast of this enormous force, the internal organs of the latter shook, and at the same time that he flew out, he repeatedly spat out a few mouthfuls of blood before finally fiercely plunging to the ground.
Whereas at this exact instant.
Duan Ling Tian flashed out, his entire body seemed to have transformed into a gale as he arrived at the place the Mountain Split Sect disciple would land in advance.
When he saw the Mountain Split Sect disciple descended, Duan Ling Tian swept his leg out, precisely hitting the knee of the disciple.
“Ah!” The clear sound of bones fracturing and his miserable shrill cry practically sounded out at the same time, and was incomparably ear piercing, causing everyone present to feel a chill run down their spines.
Finally, the Mountain Split Sect disciple emitted a shrill cry as he fell, and he just happened to kneel before Duan Ling Tian.
His features were warped and hideous out of extreme pain.
“Presumptuous!” The Sect Leader of Mountain Split Sect had finally recovered from his shock, and his expression went grim as he stood up abruptly, desiring to flash towards Duan Ling Tian.
“Sect Leader Teng.” At practically the exact same instant, Linghu Jin Hong glanced indifferently at the Sect Leader of Mountain Peak Sect. “I presume you heard clearly what your Mountain Split Sect disciple said to Duan Ling Tian before the battle. Let the juniors deal with their own issues… How about it?”
The Mountain Split Sect’s Sect Leader was speechless.
Only now did he recalled that before his Mountain Split Sect disciple battled this abnormal disciple of the Seven Star Sword Sect, he seemed to have wantonly humiliated his opponent, and he even threatened to change his opponent’s name to ‘Kneeling Ling’…
He realized that he wasn’t in the right, so he could only suppress the flames of rage within his heart and sit back down.
But the gaze he shot at Duan Ling Tian still contained traces of frightful cold lights mixed within…
Such a monstrous genius disciple had actually appeared in the Seven Star Sword Sect.
Fourth level Nascent Soul Stage at the age of only 22!
Such natural talent was simply more monstrous that the most outstanding of the five great young masters in the current younger generation of the Azure Forest Imperial Kingdom.
Even if it was the leader of the five great young masters, the one called the person with the most monstrous natural talent in the Martial Dao in the last one hundred years of the Azure Forest Imperial Kingdom, it was still far from being able to compare to this Seven Star Sword Sect disciple.
As he gazed at this Seven Star Sword Sect disciple, he was envious and jealous in his heart.
Why isn’t my Mountain Split Sect able to accept such a monstrous disciple?
“Now, what do you think?” Duan Ling Tian looked down at the Mountain Split Sect disciple that knelt before him and his gaze was terrifyingly calm. “You’re kneeling on the floor, kneeling before me… Do you still think I’m not worthy of the name Duan Ling Tian? Do you still think you have the qualifications to change my name?”
Do you still think you have the qualifications to change my name?
What Duan Ling Tian said entered into the ears of everyone present and it caused them to sigh with emotion.
Obviously, Duan Ling Tian’s rage was precisely from the words the Mountain Split Sect disciple spoke.
The Mountain Split Sect disciple was already trying his best to endure the pain of having his bones fractured and he gritted his teeth tightly as his body trembled…
Now, he recalled his previous actions when he heard Duan Ling Tian and shame arose within his heart. For a time, he felt his vital qi and blood surge up to a point it was difficult to restrain.
“Pu!” In the end, the Mountain Split Sect disciple’s chest rose and fell for a while like a bellow, then his face flushed red as he spat out a mouthful of blood, and it caused him to fall on the ground and pass out.
Duan Ling Tian frowned, as he never expected the Mountain Split Sect disciple to be so useless, then he returned to the pergola.
Although returning to the pergola was only a few steps away, Duan Ling Tian was able to feel numerous gazes that were like rain as they all descended onto him during this short few steps.
“Junior Brother Duan Ling Tian, I really never imagined that you’ve already broken through to the fourth level of the Nascent Soul Stage, you’ve already caught up to me.” Zheng Song led Duan Ling Tian to sit by his side and laughed in excitement.
But deep within his eyes, a slight dimness was mixed within.
He was seven years older than Duan Ling Tian, yet his cultivation was only on par with Duan Ling Tian, and this caused him to feel embarrassment that came from the heart…
However, in next to no time, he came to an understanding.
This Junior Brother Duan Ling Tian of his was an utterly abnormal person. If anyone were to compare themselves to him, it would simply be looking for trouble.
Huang Ji’s expression was as unsightly as unsightly could be.
Earlier, he’d insistently pushed and mocked Duan Ling Tian to make Duan Ling Tian battle the Mountain Split Sect disciple, precisely for the sake of allowing that Mountain Split Sect disciple to teach Duan Ling Tian a lesson.
“Duan Ling Tian has actually broken through to the fourth level of the Nascent Soul Stage!” However, never had Huang Ji imagined that Duan Ling Tian, who was only at the second level of the Nascent Soul Stage in his opinion, would actually have concealed his cultivation so deeply, and Duan Ling Tian’s cultivation had already stepped into the fourth level of the Nascent Soul Stage!
Meng Qiu, who sat by Huang Ji’s side, had an expression that flickered between one that was livid and ashen.
He knew that from today onwards, he could be considered to have completely joined the side of Duan Ling Tian’s opposition…
At this moment, his heart was filled with regret.
Huang Ji mocking Duan Ling Tian was Huang Ji’s own problem, why did he have to join in?
If it wasn’t for this, it wouldn’t have come to the extent that he became the opposition of Duan Ling Tian.
