“Bai, don’t be rude!” The blue clothed middle aged man that stood beside the young man, the person that was called City Governor Zhong by Feng Wu Dao, frowned as he shouted in a low voice.
But the young man didn’t pay any attention to him and instead looked at Duan Ling Tian as he ridiculed. “Kid, if you have the balls then don’t hide behind a woman! In my opinion, you surely used despicable and shameless methods to defeat Tian Wu.”
“City Governor Feng, I’m sorry. My son…” City Governor Zhong looked at Feng Wu Dao and had an apologetic expression.
“There’s no harm done.” Feng Wu Dao waved his hand and said indifferently, “Let the juniors solve their own problems… If one want’s to become a great person, then one can’t avoid experiencing some suffering on the path of growth.”
City Governor Zhong was stunned and a bad premonition arose within his heart. He looked at his son, wanting to stop him.
But unfortunately, he was still too late.
The conflict had already arisen and it was difficult to retrieve spilt water.
“Tian Wu!” Duan Ling Tian stopped Feng Tian Wu who wanted to come forward on his behalf, and lightly smiled. “Let me handle these small matters… It’s only a clown, you don’t have to get angry because of him.”
Feng Tian Wu lightly nodded, and when she looked back at Duan Ling Tian, she smiled like a flower. “Big Brother Duan, then I’ll watch you teach this clown a proper lesson.”
“Alright.” Duan Ling Tian nodded.
As for the young man, the son of City Governor Zhong, Zhong Bai, his face had gone gloomy since long ago.
This little kid that was slightly over 20 called him a clown?
“Bai…” City Governor Zhong had just spoke when it abruptly stopped.
He was able to discern that his son was truly angry, and with his understanding of his son, then once his son set his mind on something, it would be impossible to change.
Although he was able to use his strong martial strength to stop the following scene from occurring, when he recalled what Feng Wu Dao said earlier, he dispelled any thoughts of making a move.
Meanwhile, everyone within the gorge had surrounded them.
“It’s City Governor Zhong’s son, Zhong Bai! Supposedly, Zhong Bai’s cultivation has already broken through to the sixth level of the Nascent Soul Stage!”
“That young man came together with City Governor Feng… I seem to have not seen him in the past.”
“You don’t know? Three months ago, this young man defeated Miss Tian Wu during the Groom Search Competition City Governor Feng held for Miss Tian Wu, and became the son-in-law of City Governor Feng!”
“I head this son-in-law of City Governor Feng is only a fifth level Nascent Soul Stage martial artist.”
“It can’t be, right? According to my knowledge, Miss Tian Wu seems to be a martial artist at the sixth level of the Nascent Soul Stage that had comprehended a Fire Force Seed, moreover, she even possesses a grade five spirit weapon. How could she possibly lose at the hands of a fifth level Nascent Soul Stage martial artist?”
“Allegedly, this young man used Elementary Wind Force to defeat Miss Tian Wu.”
“Elementary Wind Force? What a joke! That’s genuine Force that only a martial artist at the Void Prying Stage or above is able to comprehend… How could a fifth level Nascent Soul Stage martial artist like him comprehend it!?”
The surrounding crowd quickly became bustling with excitement and the rumors relating to Duan Ling Tian started spreading out.
But no one believed the rumor that Duan Ling Tian had comprehended Elementary Wind Force.
After all, only martial artists at the Void Prying Stage and above are able to comprehend genuine Force, and this was an iron law in Cloud Continent.
They’d never heard of anyone being able to break this iron law.
People which possessed similar thoughts naturally included Zhong Bai.
“Kid, let me properly experience your Elementary Wind Force!” Zhong Bai ridiculed, and a spirit sword appeared with a raise of his hand, then Origin Energy coiled and raged as it suffused the space around the spirit sword.
In an instant, another 300 ancient mammoth silhouettes appeared beside the existing 800 ancient mammoth silhouettes above Zhong Bai…
Based on the strength of amplification, the spirit sword in Zhong Bai’s hand was obviously a grade six spirit sword.
“The Darkstone Empire is worthy of being an existence that transcended the Azure Forest Imperial Kingdom… This son of a City Governor from a mere remote city is actually able to casually take out a grade six spirit sword, truly shocking.” Duan Ling Tian thought in his heart.
After all, even if it was in a sect like the Seven Star Sword Sect, grade six spirit swords were only controlled in the hands of the higher-ups.
Besides him, practically no one amongst the younger generation disciples of the Seven Star Sword Sect possessed a grade six spirit sword.
Of course, Duan Ling Tian knew clearly in his heart that this wasn’t sufficient to show that the Seven Star Sword Sect was inferior to a mere City Governor’s Estate in a remote city of the Darkstone Empire, and it was instead because the level of weapons refinement in the Azure Forest Imperial Kingdom was inferior to the Darkstone Empire.
The level of weapons refinement was decided by the amount of high grade weapons craftsmen.
The amount of high grade weapons craftsmen in the Azure Forest Imperial kingdom was surely inferior to the Darkstone Empire.
The word Empire had already firmly surpassed the word Imperial Kingdom.
“The strength of 1,100 ancient mammoths?” The corners of Duan Ling Tian’s mouth curled into a smile of disdain and indifference, as Zhong Bai posed no threat to him in the slightest.
“Hmph!” Perhaps he’d discerned the disdain on the corners of Duan Ling Tian’s mouth, Zhong Bai’s face sank and grunted coldly before flashing out.
Zhong Bai moved out to attack, seeming to transform into a gust of wind, and everywhere he passed, dust and dirt flew in the air as he swept towards Duan Ling Tian.
“Kid, let me properly experience the genuine Wind Force you’ve comprehended!” At the same time, a voice that was filled with mocking and ridicule sounded out.
“As you wish!” Duan Ling Tian replied in an uninterested manner, and the Origin Energy beneath his legs rages as Wind Force emerged.
Instantly, 900 ancient mammoth silhouettes appeared in the sky above Duan Ling Tian….
Whereas Duan Ling Tian seemed to have transformed into a gale as well, moving aside a step earlier before Zhong Bai reached him, avoiding the grade six spirit sword that was powered by Zhong Bai’s strength of 1,100 ancient mammoths.
Zhong Bai’s grade six spirit sword’s speed was swift because of the amplification of the sword itself, but it didn’t mean that his own speed was swift.
His own speed was only powered by the strength of 800 ancient mammoths.
He couldn’t catch up to Duan Ling Tian’s speed no matter how hard he tried!
So long as Duan Ling Tian didn’t give him an opportunity to get close, it would be difficult for him to catch up to Duan Ling Tian.
“It’s really Elementary Wind Force!”
The surrounding crowd had no lack of people with sharp eyesight, and they saw through the aura of Wind Force that was suffused within the Origin Energy on Duan Ling Tian’s legs with a glance.
That was genuine Force, Wind Force, Elementary Wind Force!
It was comparably to the strength of 200 ancient mammoths.
The expressions of most people changed to an expression of shock. “This son-in-law of City Governor Feng has actually broken the iron law of Cloud Continent since ancient times!”
Swoosh! Swoosh! Swoosh! Swoosh! Swoosh!
Duan Ling Tian was like a ghost as he ceaselessly flashed around Zhong Bai, constantly keeping a length of distance from Zhong Bai, and causing the grade six spirit sword in Zhong Bai’s hand to be unable to touch him.
At this moment, Zhong Bai was incomparably aggrieved.
The grade six spirit sword in his hand possessed a strong strength and swift speed, yet the speed under his feet was far inferior to Duan Ling Tian.
Currently, it was as if Duan Ling Tian was playing tricks on him.
“Let me see how you dodge this!” Suddenly, Zhong Bai who was angry out of embarrassment shouted out explosively, he’d accurately grasped the trajectory of Duan Ling Tian’s movements, and the grade six spirit sword in his hand shook as it flew out from his hand, flying directly towards Duan Ling Tian.
The grade six spirit sword seemed to have transformed into a sharp arrow that tightly locked itself onto Duan Ling Tian, and gave rise to a wave of ear piercing howls in the wind as it moved.
This sword strike was powered by the strength of 1,100 ancient mammoths, and its speed was swift to the extent it far surpassed Duan Ling Tian’s speed.
“Quite intelligent in a small way.” Duan Ling Tian stopped moving when facing this sword strike as he knew that continuing to dodge had no meaning now.
With his current speed, it would be inferior to Zhong Bai’s sword even if he utilized Quake Energy at the limit.
After Duan Ling Tian stopped, a dark violet flexible sword appeared out of thin air in his hand.
Suddenly Duan Ling Tian attacked.
Sword Drawing Arts!
His sword swung out like a bolt of lightning, especially since that besides the raging Origin Energy within it, there was swift and fierce Elementary Wind Force mixed within.
In the sky, 1,200 ancient mammoth silhouettes dashed out with an imposing manner that shot into the sky like a rainbow.
The sword in Duan Ling Tian’s hand was like a shadow that easily stopped the sword that Zhong Bai send out.
With a single sword strike, he’d smashed Zhong Bai’s grade six spirit sword flying in an extremely efficient manner.
Duan Ling Tian seized this opportunity to transform into a gale once again and charged straight towards Zhong Bai whose face went pale.
“Show mercy!” The face of Zhong Bai’s father went pale, yet he didn’t dare move to assist Zhong Bai.
Because he’d noticed that Feng Wu Dao had already locked onto him, and caused him to not dare make any rash movements.
The Violet Myrtle Flexible Sword in Duan Ling Tian’s hand flashed out, and when it arrived close to Zhong Bai, it suddenly twisted to slap out with the blade of the sword.
The blade of the sword smashed onto Zhong Bai’s body, slapping Zhong Bai flying to fiercely collide on the precipice at the side of the gorge, and for a time, shattered bits of rocks flew about and dust suffused the air.
Whereas Zhong Bai brushed on the wall as he fiercely descended onto the ground, then repeatedly spat out a few mouthfuls of blood with an extremely ghastly pale expression.
When he looked at Duan Ling Tian once again, his gaze was filled with terror.
Duan Ling Tian put away his sword then glanced indifferently at Zhong Bai before returning to Feng Tian Wu’s side.
No one noticed that at this moment, Feng Tian Wu’s beautiful face beneath the veil had flushed rosy, as if she was even happier than if it was she herself who’d taught Zhong Bai as lesson.
“Congratulations City Governor Feng for obtained such a superb son-in-law!”
“Congratulations City Governor Feng!”
“City Governor Feng has such great fortune to actually obtain such a son-in-law!”
Presently, the people from the other 28 cities were practically all gathered here, and the 28 City Governors had all congratulated Feng Wu Dao.
Whereas Feng Wu Dao revealed a rare smile.
“Thank you, Little Brother, for showing mercy.” After City Governor Zhong gave Zhong Bai a medicinal pill, he looked at Duan Ling Tian with an expression of gratitude.
He knew clearly in his heart that even if Duan Ling Tian really killed his son earlier, he wouldn’t dare take revenge and could only endure it.
Feng Wu Dao was too strong!
Even if he and the other 28 City Governors were to join forces, they might not be able to be a match for Feng Wu Dao.
Duan Ling Tian nodded lightly.
“There’s still another half an hour before the Soulcleanse Pool opens!” It was unknown who said this.
The gazes of most of the people within the gorge descended onto the ball of cloud and mist within the gorge…
The cloud and wind were converged together and revealed a mysterious and unfathomable aura.
“The Soulcleanse Pool is inside?” Duan Ling Tian’s Spiritual Force extended out and sensed the numerous energies of inscriptions contained within the clouds and mist in the first possible moment.
