Chapter 414: Bandits On A Rampage
Translator: KurazyTolanzuraytor Editor: Jay
The merchant group that was like a long dragon moved out of the Ancient City of Everlast and headed towards the east.
Besides Duan Ling Tian’s group of five, there was still another team of guards within the merchant group.
The commander of the guards was a sixth level Nascent Soul Stage martial artist.
Duan Ling Tian had a calm expression as he spurred his horse in the desert, and his mind was immersed in cultivation.
Nine Dragons War Sovereign Technique, Wind Wyrm Form!
This scene caused Feng Ping who rode by Duan Ling Tian’s side to be unable to help from being moved.
He then glanced at the nearby Seven Star Sword Sect disciples that were chatting and they formed a striking comparison, causing him to sigh in his heart. “Not only is this Duan Ling Tian’s natural talent high, but he’s so hardworking… No wonder he possesses this cultivation of this as such an age.”
The merchant group moved and stopped, stopped and moved, and half a month’s time quickly passed by.
During this half month of time, the merchant group didn’t encounter an attack from bandits.
Stomp! Stomp! Stomp! Stomp! Stomp!
Rapid sounds of horse hooves suddenly sounded out from the distance and for a time, the entire ground shook like an earthquake.
“Stop!” Along with the explosive shout of the Ancient River Trading Company’s guard commander, the merchant group stopped.
“Elder Feng Ping.” After the merchant group stopped, the guard commander looked at Feng Ping with a respectful expression.
Although he was the guard commander of the merchant group, his cultivation was only at the sixth level of the Nascent Soul Stage, and he was nothing compared to the elder of the Seven Star Sword Sect.
The safety of the merchant group still had to rely mainly on this Seven Star Sword Sect elder.
Feng Ping nodded, then he brought along Duan Ling Tian and the other Seven Star Sword Sect disciples to slowly spur their horses forward towards the distance, the place where the sounds came from.
Meanwhile, under the lead of the guard commander, the 100 plus guards of the merchant group followed behind Duan Ling Tian’s group to strengthen their appearance.
Suddenly, Duan Ling Tian’s eyes squinted.
He was able to see that there were over 100 horses galloping from afar in a vast array.
In the blink of an eye, they’d already approached Duan Ling Tian’s group.
The numerous tall horses stopped and stood still nearby Duan Ling Tian’s group.
There was a person on each of these tall horses. For a total of over 100 people, they all wore various different attire and looked brawny.
“Bandits!” Duan Ling Tian guessed the identity of these people at the first possible moment.
“Leave all your goods and f**k off!” The bandit in the lead was a robust middle aged man with a scar on his face. He appeared to be extremely violent and wicked, and he shouted out explosively to Duan Ling Tian’s group.
This person was obviously the leader of the bandits.
Right at this moment, the guard commander of the merchant group spurred his horse forward to stand by Feng Ping’s side, then he looked at the leader of the bandits and said in a deep voice, “Where are you bandits from? Could it be that you don’t know this is the merchant group of the Ancient River Trading Company?”
“Ancient River Trading Company? Never heard of it!” The bandit leader glared his eyes that were large as gongs when he heard the guard commander, then shouted explosively. “Did you hear what I f**king said? I’ll give all of you 15 minutes to prepare… After that time, if you still let me f**king see the sight of any of you, I’ll f**king…”
The bandit leader hadn’t finished speaking when he was interrupted by a bandit in grey clothes behind him. “Leader! This is the merchant group of the Ancient River Trading Company, let’s withdraw.”
This bandit had a terrified expression and his figure started shivering.
“Withdraw?” The bandit leader frowned and he was puzzled towards what this subordinate of his said.
This subordinate of his was one of the strongest amongst all his subordinates, and logically speaking, this subordinate wasn’t such a cowardly person…
“Leader, this Ancient River Trading Company is protected by the Seven Star Sword Sect… Look at those few people, they are all members of the Seven Star Sword Sect. The middle aged man is wearing the attire of a Seven Star Sword Sect elder. If I’m not wrong, he ought to be one of the two External Affairs Elders of the Seven Star Sword Sect that’s guarding the Ancient River Trading Company’s branch in the Ancient City of Everlast!” As the grey clothed bandit finished speaking, he had an expression of terror. “Supposedly, the two External Affairs Elders of the Seven Star Sword Sect that are guarding the Ancient River Trading Company’s branch in the Ancient City of Everlast are both existences at the third level of the Void Prying Stage!”
Actually, the expression of the bandit leader went pale when the grey clothed bandit mentioned the Seven Star Sword Sect.
Now, when he finished listening to the grey clothed bandit, his pupils couldn’t help but constrict.
Third level of the Void Prying Stage?
“I’ve caused a great calamity!” The bandit leader’s heart shook and his face went pale, then his gaze descended onto Feng Ping who wore the attire of a Seven Star Sword Sect elder, then cupped his hands and said, “Lord, I, Wang Lao San, didn’t know that you’re a senior from the Seven Star Sword Sect… Please forgive me for being impolite.”
Presently, the bandit leader had a terrified expression.
“Hmph! Now all of you bandits know that you’ve bitten off more than you can chew? All of you dare rob the merchant group of the trading company that’s protected by our Seven Star Sword Sect? You really have guts!” Feng Ping hadn’t even made a remark when Zhao Lei had already grunted coldly and sharply denounced the bandit leader.
“You…” The bandit leader’s face went grim.
He was a ninth level Nascent Soul Stage martial artist at any rate.
He was afraid of the Seven Star Sword Sect’s elder, but it didn’t mean that he was afraid of an ordinary disciple of the Seven Star Sword Sect…
But when he thought of how there was a Seven Star Sword Sect elder present, he lowered his arrogant head and hurriedly agreed without daring to hesitate.
He knew clearly in his heart that with strength of a Void Prying Stage martial artist, it was sufficient to sweep through their entire bandit group.
When he saw the bandit leader yield, Zhao Lei who relied on Elder Feng Ping to scold the bandit leader had a complacent expression.
Finally, Feng Ping glanced indifferently at the bandit leader and said, “Since all of you are unable to deal with us, then we’ll do it according to the rules of the boundless desert… Cripple your own cultivation.”
The rules of the boundless desert.
If a bandit group were to be careless and offend an existence that they couldn’t go against, the moment before annihilation, the bandit leader could make a choice to save the entire bandit group.
So long as the bandit leader crippled his own cultivation, the bandit group would be able to escape the calamity.
Feng Ping’s words caused the bandit leader’s face to go deathly pale.
“Respected Elder Feng Ping.” Meanwhile, the grey clothed bandit looked at Feng Ping with a terrified expression. “Our leader and group of brothers have only entered the business not long ago. They were confused for a time and that’s why they stopped the merchant group of the Ancient River Trading Company… I hope that Elder can give us a way out and spare us.”
Entered the business not long ago?
Duan Ling Tian had a strange gaze. In this way, these bandits were mostly reckless fellows?
However, at this moment, Duan Ling Tian felt admiration from the bottom of his heart towards Elder Feng Ping’s deterrent force…
Feng Ping’s strength deterred the entire group of bandits and caused them to utterly not dare attack.
This world where the strong are respected was vividly portrayed at this moment.
“Since you don’t dare, then let me help you,” Feng Ping said indifferently.
Right when Feng Ping had just finished speaking and the bandit leader’s face went deathly pale.
A wave of ear piercing howls of the wind set off ceaselessly continuous sounds of air exploding, and the sounds entered into the ears of everyone present.
Everyone present saw the energy of heaven and earth roil in the sky, then it condensed into 4,000 ancient mammoth silhouettes that dashed out…
“Ah!” An enormous bang accompanied by a shrill cried practically sounded out at the same time.
In the next moment, everyone saw Feng Ping had returned to his horse in the blink of an eye, whereas the bandit leader instead flew out with his horse.
In the sky above the bandit leader, the ancient mammoth silhouettes that had just condensed had fully dispersed.
“No… No… No!!” The bandit leader successively spat out a few mouthfuls of blood, then his expression went gloomy, as if he’d realized something.
His eyes filled with hatred stared at Feng Ping. “You… You crippled my cultivation, you actually crippled my cultivation… Fight to the death, I’ll fight you to the death!” The bandit leader struggled to stand up, then staggered as he charged towards Feng Ping.
“Leader!” The expressions of the group of bandits contained sadness within.
“You’re courting death!” An explosive shout suddenly sounded out, and a figure flashed out.
The howl of a sword appeared.
In the next moment, a bloody hole appeared in the throat of the bandit leader, then his body trembled before crashing onto the ground.
The person that struck the killing blow was precisely Zhao Lei.
After Zhao Lei returned to his horse, he coldly swept the corpse of the bandit leader with his gaze as he said in disdain, “Trash!”
Duan Ling Tian frowned when he saw this scene.
As far as he was concerned, Zhao Lei’s actions had gone too far.
The bandit leader had lost his cultivation and was already without threat.
“Zhao Lei!” Feng Ping frowned and had a displeased expression, as he felt that Zhao Lei had broken the rules.
“Elder Feng Ping, he’s trash without his cultivation anyway, there’s no use in leaving him alive.” Zhao Lei beamed and had an indifferent expression.
“You… You actually killed our leader!” The grey clothed bandit recovered from his shock and looked at Zhao Lei with an extremely furious expression. “The disciples of the Seven Star Sword Sect are so shameless and so unobservant of the rules?”
“Not good!” Meanwhile, Duan Ling Tian was able to notice that streams of killing intent that shot into the sky seemed to be rising from the remaining group of bandits.
“Brothers, they didn’t follow the rules, so even if we die trying, we must take revenge for the leader!” Along with the explosive shout of the grey clothed bandit.
“Take revenge for the leader!”
The group of bandits had completely gone berserk, and they were all as if in a frenzy as they spurred their horses to gallop forward with an imposing manner that shot into the sky like a rainbow.
Origin Energy skyrocketed atop the sabers in the bandit’s hands as they flashed towards Duan Ling Tian and the others.
Om! Om! Om! Om! Om!
Saber lights that covered the sky swept towards them.
When over 100 bandits that were unafraid of death charged towards them, even with Feng Ping fighting at full force, he was still unable to kill all of them for a time.
Before long, Duan Ling Tian’s group was submerged in bandits.
The bloodbath and slaughter had completely unfolded.
Duan Ling Tian sat on the tall horse with one hand pressing on his horse’s head to pacify the steed that was becoming restless, and his other hand held onto the narrow sword.
Duan Ling Tian never took the initiative to attack.
But every bandit that attacked Duan Ling Tian would die beneath his sword without exception.
Before long, the group of bandits realized that Duan Ling Tian was not to be easily offended, and they intentionally avoided Duan Ling Tian.
For a time, the place where Duan Ling Tian was had become a strange no-man’s land.
The bandit leader’s strength was the strongest in the group of bandits.
Amongst the remaining bandits, only a little over ten bandits were comparatively stronger, including that grey clothed bandit…
These ten or so bandits were also the targets Feng Ping took special care of.
However, there was still a fish that had escaped the net in the end.
“You actually dared to kill the leader, I’ll kill you!” Duan Ling Tian heard an explosive shout and couldn’t refrain from turning towards the sound. It was the grey clothed bandit who was charging towards Zhao Lei.
