Translator: KurazyTolanzuraytor Editor: Jay
Presently, Meng Qiu had abandoned any prejudice he had towards Duan Ling Tian, so he naturally hoped that Duan Ling Tian would be able to defeat Saber Young Master and bring glory to the Seven Star Sword Sect.
He could imagine that if Duan Ling Tian were to obtain victory in the battle with Saber Young Master today, then Duan Ling Tian would surely become a legend of the Azure Forest Imperial Kingdom.
A mere 22 year old Seven Star Sword Sect disciple had defeated Saber Young Master, one of the five great young masters, that were most outstanding within the Azure Forest Imperial Kingdom’s younger generation…
This would be such an unbelievable and shocking thing!
When he thought up to this point, Meng Qiu had an expression of anticipation, as he anticipated Duan Ling Tian being able to create a miracle again!
As far as he was concerned, Duan Ling Tian was already bound together with the Seven Star Sword Sect now, and they shared their glory together.
If Duan Ling Tian were to win, then as a disciple of the Seven Star Sword Sect, he would be able to benefit from it as well.
“Duan Ling Tian!” When Saber Young Master, Long Yun, confronted Duan Ling Tian, he had a serious expression, as if he took Duan Ling Tian to be a formidable enemy in his life.
After all, even when Long Yun was facing Liu Yue earlier, he’d never been so serious.
During the match between him and Liu Yue, from the beginning until the end, he’d never taken Liu Yue seriously.
He said he wouldn’t take more than three breaths of time to defeat Liu Yue, and he didn’t exceed the time…
“Saber Young Master, I’ve heard much about you.” Duan Ling Tian lightly nodded to Long Yun with a carefree expression.
Even though the Saber Young Master was far-famed, he didn’t cause Duan Ling Tian to feel any pressure…
Within the Martial Competition Courtyard was a wave of deathly silence.
The gazes of everyone present descended onto Duan Ling Tian and Saber Young Master and they stared fixedly at them, deeply afraid they would miss even the slightest detail.
“Duan Ling Tian, let me see what ability you have exactly that you’re actually able to make the Saber Young Master look so highly upon you, and he actually said you’re stronger than me.” Liu Yue returned to the pergola and she who had consumed a medicinal pill had recovered her injuries by a great deal, then her eyes squinted as she stared fixedly at Duan Ling Tian.
“Duan Ling Tian I hope you use your full strength when fighting me… Otherwise, I’m afraid you won’t have the opportunity.” Saber Young Master reminded with good intentions.
“Don’t worry.” Duan Ling Tian lightly smiled. This Saber Young Master was interesting. Although arrogant, he seemed not to be one of those brainless people.
Saber Young Master nodded and he who had a serious expression chose to make the first move to gain the advantage.
Saber Young Master’s figure move out, his entire body seeming to have transformed into an incomparably swift bolt of lightning that flashed straight towards Duan Ling Tian, as if he wanted to suppress Duan Ling Tian before he could even react.
In the sky, the energy or heaven and earth roiled before developing into 800 ancient mammoth silhouettes that dashed out behind him in full fury.
Sounds of air exploding continuously rose and fell everywhere Saber Young Master passed, and it was incomparably ear piercing.
When Saber Young Master flashed straight at him, Duan Ling Tian felt as if a gust of piercingly cold strong winds had swept towards him.
Instantly, Duan Ling Tian’s expression became serious.
In the next moment.
Instantly, Origin Energy rose explosively on Duan Ling Tian’s legs, and 611 ancient mammoth silhouettes condensed into form above him…
The strength of 611 ancient mammoths!
Obviously, now, Duan Ling Tian had exploded out with all the strength within his entire body.
But this little strength was far inferior to Saber Young Master.
The corners of Duan Ling Tian’s mouth curled into an evil smile.
In the next moment, strands of a strange aura suddenly jumped about within the Origin Energy on his legs.
In the sky, another 200 ancient mammoths appeared beside the existing 611 ancient mammoths….
Duan Ling Tian flashed out, his entire body seeming to have transformed into a gale. The instant the grade six spirit saber in Saber Young Master’s hand unsheathed, he’d dodged away from Saber Young Master.
In terms of speed, he was even above Saber Young Master!
The grade six spirit saber in Saber Young Master’s hand had just been unsheathed, he wasn’t even in time to attack when he noticed Duan Ling Tian vanish before his eyes and his face instantly went grim. He and Duan Ling Tian brushed past each other and exchanged positions.
Then he turned around to continue facing Duan Ling Tian who’d flashed behind him.
“Duan Ling Tian, that is…” Saber Young Master gazed at the raging Origin Energy on Duan Ling Tian’s legs, and he was able to perceive that it contained strands of strange aura.
This aura was extremely familiar to him.
Not only that, he was able to perceive that Duan Ling Tian’s Force was far stronger than his Saber Force Seed.
“When Duan Ling Tian dodged Saber Young Master’s attack earlier, he seemed to have utilized the strength of over 800 ancient mammoths… Could it be that he’s a sixth level Nascent Soul Stage martial artist?”
“That’s impossible… He’s only 22 years old! A 22 year old sixth level Nascent Soul Stage martial artist? How could that be possible?!”
The disciples of the various great sects were dumbstruck as they gazed at Duan Ling Tian.
The terrifying speed Duan Ling Tian displayed earlier was actually even swifter than Saber Young Master, and it caused their scalps to go numb.
Exactly what sort of freak is this Duan Ling Tian?!
Bang! Bang! Bang! Bang! Bang!
Right at this moment, a wave of sounds of tea cups being crushed sounded out abruptly.
The Sect Leaders of the five great sects and their Elders had astounded expressions as they looked at Duan Ling Tian, and their hands that held the tea cups subconsciously used force and directly crushed the cups.
“Wind Force Seed?”
“No… That isn’t a Wind Force Seed! That’s Wind Force, genuine Force… Drawing upon the energy of heaven and earth to condense 200 ancient mammoths’ silhouettes is Elementary Wind Force!”
“A Nascent Soul Stage martial artist comprehending Elementary Wind Force? Is that possible?”
“No matter if it’s possible or not… What Duan Ling Tian utilized is indeed Elementary Wind Force! Although I’m unwilling to believe it, he’s broken convention.”
The Sect Leaders and Elders of the Demonic Lotusblade Sect, Snow Moon Sect, Origin Convergence Sect, and Mountain Split Sect all had astounded expressions as they discussed animatedly.
A Nascent Soul Stage martial artist comprehending genuine Force had completely exceeded their imaginations!
“Elementary Wind Force… Duan Ling Tian has actually comprehended Elementary Wind Force? He seems to only be a fourth level Nascent Soul Stage martial artist.” Within the pergola that the Seven Star Sword Sect’s Leader and the two Peak Master sat, Phecda Peak’s Master, Ke Zhen, had an astonished expression. He was stunned as he felt the strange aura contained within the raging Origin Energy on Duan Ling Tian’s legs.
That was Wind Force, genuine Force.
It wasn’t a Force seed.
“This little fellow really shocks people to death!” The Mizar Peak’s Master Zheng Fan was dazed for a moment before coming back to his senses, and he looked at Duan Ling Tian and shook his head with a bitter smiled on his face.
Although he’d realized Duan Ling Tian was extraordinary since long ago, he’d never imagined that Duan Ling Tian would be able to comprehend Elementary Wind Force at the fourth level of the Nascent Soul Stage…
It had completely broken convention!
According to convention, only a martial artist at the Void Prying Stage or above was able to comprehend genuine Force.
If a Nascent Soul Stage martial artists comprehension ability was good, although they were able to come into contact with Force, that was only a seed of Force, and not genuine Force.
Earlier, when Saber Young Master and Liu Yue had battled, it had already caused them to be shocked when Saber Young Master utilized a Saber Force Seed…
Comprehending a Saber Force Seed at the sixth level of the Nascent Soul Stage martial showed that he possessed boundless prospects.
Now, Duan Ling Tian instead had directly utilized genuine Force.
Most importantly, he was only a fourth level Nascent Soul Stage martial artist!
“Comprehending genuine Force at the fourth level of the Nascent Soul Stage?” The Seven Star Sword Sect’s Leader, Linghu Jin Hong, was usually steady, but at this moment his body unnoticeably started trembling and his eyes contained bits of excitement.
Duan Ling Tian had truly given him a pleasant surprise…
This pleasant surprise was too huge!
Huge to the point he felt as if he was dreaming.
But everything before his eyes instead told him that he wasn’t dreaming, and everything was real.
“The heavens have blessed my Seven Star Sword Sect, the heavens have blessed my Seven Star Sword Sect!” Linghu Jin Hong’s mood was completely agitated, and it was difficult to calm down even after a long time.
“Genuine Force?” The sounds of the five great sect’s higher-ups entered into the ears of the disciples from the various sects as expected.
For a time.
Swoosh! Swoosh! Swoosh!
The gazes of the disciples of the various sects shot at Duan Ling Tian in unison.
“Duan Ling Tian has comprehended genuine Force? Moreover, it’s Wind Force?”
“Wind Force is a force of nature and is unlike Sword Force, Saber Force, Rod Force, and similar weapon Force. The latter can only be used on offense, whereas the forces of nature are able to be used for offense and used to increase speed, and it can be said to possess both offense and speed!”
“Forces of nature are even more difficult to comprehend than weapon Force. Even if Duan Ling Tian only comprehended a Wind Force Seed, it would be more than enough to be shocking… But he directly comprehended genuine Force! Although it’s only Elementary Wind Force, yet it’s comparable to the strength of 200 ancient mammoths!”
“Isn’t genuine Force something only a Void Prying Stage martial artist and above are able to comprehend? Duan Ling Tian is only a fourth level Nascent Soul Stage martial artist, how could he possibly comprehend genuine Force?”
“Duan Ling Tian can’t be judged by logic… According to me, he’s a freak, a super freak!”
The disciples of the various sects discussed animatedly.
The saying that Duan Ling Tian was a super freak had obtained the acknowledgement of most people.
Duan Ling Tian naturally heard all of these discussions, and the corners of his mouth couldn’t help but curl into a bitter smile.
No matter where he went, he was unable to run away from being called a freak.
“Junior Brother Duan Ling Tian… I knew it, you surely won’t lose!” A brilliant smile hung on Zheng Song’s face.
He knew clearly in his heart what it meant when Duan Ling Tian utilized Elementary Wind Force.
What it meant was that Duan Ling Tian’s speed was already on par with Long Yun…
Although Saber Young Master had comprehended a Saber Force Seed, Saber Force was unable to assist in speed.
Now, when Duan Ling Tian utilized his movement technique while relying on his Elementary Wind Force, his speed would firmly surpass Long Yun by a level, and could be said to be in an invincible position.
“Unbelievable! Duan Ling Tian is only at the fourth level of the Nascent Soul Stage and he’s already comprehended Wind Force?” Meng Qiu’s eyes shone and he had a pleasantly surprised expression.
“Dammit!” Unlike Meng Qiu and Zheng Song’s thoughts, Huang Ji’s expression was as unsightly as unsightly could be. “Duan Ling Tian has actually comprehended genuine Force, moreover, it’s the Wind Force that possess both offense and speed… How can this be possible!? How can this be possible?! This utterly does not conform to logic.”
“I’m dreaming, I’m surely dreaming!” Huang Ji shook his head and he stretched his hand out to pinch his thigh.
The pain that came from his thigh caused him to be as if struck by lightning.
Only now did he realize that he wasn’t dreaming and that everything before him was real.
