Chapter 444: Two Year Agreement
Translator: KurazyTolanzuraytor Editor: Jay
“It’s not because of this? Then because of what?” Zhao Lin was startled, and a bad premonition arose in his heart.
“Uncle! You must take revenge for me and Cousin Brother Ke! Duan Ling Tian… Duan Ling Tian is so ruthless, SO RUTHLESS!!” Meanwhile, Zhao Lei recovered from his shock as well, his face was ghastly pale and even his voice was obviously trembling.
“What exactly has happened?” Zhao Ke and Zhao Lei’s behavior caused the bad premonition in Zhao Lin’s heart to grow stronger.
“Uncle!” Zhao Lei extended his hand to grab ahold of Zhao Lei’s hand, then he brought Zhao Ling’s hand to stretch towards his nether regions.
“You…” Zhao Lin only felt emptiness in his hand, the most important part of a man on his nephew had vanished.
Instantly, Zhao Lin’s face went pale. “You… Where’s that thing of yours gone?”
“Uncle!” Zhao Lei cried out tragically, then said in resentment, “There was a page at the center of the Muscle Meridian Rebirth Scroll that indicated some dazzling large words… It said that we would only be able to truly complete rebirth once we castrate ourselves! I… I and cousin brother…”
“What?!” Zhao Lei hadn’t even finished speaking when Zhao Lin’s face became ghastly pale, and he stretched his hand towards his son’s nether regions.
But when he noticed his son’s circumstances were similar to Zhao Lei, his eyes went incomparably scarlet red and practically popped out.
“Pu!” In the next moment, Zhao Lin’s figure shook and he was forcefully angered to the point he spat out a mouthful of blood.
“Duan Ling Tian! I, Zhao Lin, resolve to kill you or die trying!!” Zhao Lin’s voice was filled with bloodthirsty icy coldness and hatred.
“No… No… This isn’t real…” Zhao Ke ceaselessly shook his head as if he’d gone mad. “No… It isn’t real… It isn’t true…”
Zhao Lin returned to his senses when he heard his son’s voice, then looked at Zhao Lei as he said with a deep voice. “Why didn’t you two tell me when you saw those words in the Muscle Meridian Rebirth Scroll?”
Zhao Lei’s body shook and the corners of his mouth curled into a bitter expression. “I and cousin brother Ke were afraid that if we told uncle, then you wouldn’t allow us to continue cultivating the Muscle Meridian Rebirth Scroll… But who knew that the Muscle Meridian Rebirth Scroll was actually fake, it was actually fabricated by Duan Ling Tian!” As he finished speaking, Zhao Lei’s eyes emitted dense hatred and killed intent.
Duan Ling Tian!
It was Duan Ling Tian who had destroyed them!
“You all…. You all…. You all are so silly!” Zhao Lei’s face was ghastly pale, and he felt a wave of heartache when he glanced at Zhao Ke who’d lost his wits.
“Father!” Finally, Zhao Ke came back to his senses and looked at Zhao Ling. “Father, I want Duan Ling Tian dead! I want him dead!!” Zhao Ke’s voice revealed extremely icy coldness, and he wished for nothing more than to break Duan Ling Tian’s bones and scatter his ashes.
“Ke, don’t worry, Father will absolutely not allow that Duan Ling Tian to live happily! So long as I can find the opportunity, Father will surely break his bones and scatter his ashes to vent the hatred in your heart!” Zhao Ling gnashed his teeth, hating Duan Ling Tian to the limit.
Duan Ling Tian caused his family line to be cut off!
This enmity was comparable to the blood feud of killing one’s parents.
“Find the opportunity?” Zhao Ke shook his head ceaselessly. “No! Father, I don’t want to wait… I don’t want to wait! Let’s tell great grandfather, let’s tell great grandfather! Great grandfather is the Guardian Elder of the Seven Star Sword Sect, and killing an inner court disciple to him is as easy as flipping his palm!” At this moment, Zhao Ke had almost lost his reason.
“That won’t do!” Zhao Lin shook his head and restrained Zhao Ke.
“Why?!” Zhao Ke had an unwilling expression. “Father, could it be that you don’t want to help me take revenge?”
“Ke, be a bit more clear-headed.” Zhao Lin said in a love voice, “It was us who was in the wrong in this matter… If we tell your great grandfather, he would surely kill Duan Ling Tian to take revenge for you! But, in this way, your great grandfather will become the target of public criticism.”
“Even though your great grandfather is the Guardian Elder of the Seven Star Sword Sect, he isn’t the only one… In terms of strength, the other Guardian Elder, Elder Xuan, has a strength that surpasses your great grandfather, and he’s impartial! If your great grandfather kills Duan Ling Tian because of the matter that we are in the wrong of, Elder Xuan would surely not stand idly by!”
“There’s also the Sect Leader… The Sect Leader’s strength isn’t inferior to your great grandfather! At that time, even if your great grandfather is the Guardian Elder of the Seven Star Sword Sect, it would still be difficult for him to flee from punishment. Your great grandfather is the hope of our Zhao Clan. Once the matter of him using his position to get private revenge it known by all, he would have no place in the Seven Star Sword Sect. At that time, our Zhao Clan would be finished, do you understand?”
As he finished speaking, Zhao Lin’s voice was incomparably cold and indifferent. “However, don’t worry, I’ll seek revenge from Duan Ling Tian for this matter sooner or later… Once Duan Ling Tian dares to leave the Seven Star Sword Sect, I’ll tell your great grandfather of this matter and ask him to kill Duan Ling Tian! So long as it’s done secretly and we don’t allow anyone to find out, then Duan Ling Tian would have died for nothing.”
“Now, temporarily don’t let your great grandfather know of this matter. Otherwise, with his temper, he would surely directly kill Duan Ling Tian.” Zhao Lin’s words were filled with apprehension.
Zhao Ke’s expression eased up and he took a deep breath. “Father, I’m sorry, it was I who was too rash. But when I recall how in the future, I can’t… I… I feel hatred! Why did I have to believe the Muscle Meridian Rebirth Scroll’s saying that only by self-castration could rebirth be achieved!? Why did I believe it!?” When he finished speaking, Zhao Ke was agitated once again.
Zhao Lei stood at the side with a pair of tightly clenched fist and teeth that were bit together tightly, and his eyes emitted bloodthirsty hatred. “Duan Ling Tian… Duan Ling Tian…”
At this moment, no matter if it was Zhao Lei, Zhao Ke, or Zhao Lin, they had all seemed to have forgotten that they’d brought this all onto themselves.
If it wasn’t for them wanting to seize the fictitious Muscle Meridian Rebirth Scroll that was in Duan Ling Tian’s possession, if it wasn’t for them having killing intent towards Duan Ling Tian…
Would Duan Ling Tian do this?
Duan Ling Tian’s disposition had always been one of not offending unless being offended, and if one offended him, he would surely counterattack tenfold, hundredfold, and even thousandfold!
At the side of the peak of Megrez Peak, in the stalactite cave.
Duan Ling Tian sat cross-legged on the stone platform and closed his eyes in cultivation, and his entire mind was completely immersed in his cultivation.
Presently, he’d completely withdrawn any thoughts in his heart once he found out that Ke Er and Li Fei weren’t in the Seven Star Sword Sect, and he completely concentrated himself in cultivating.
Nine Dragons War Sovereign Technique, Wind Wyrm Form!
When Duan Ling Tian cultivated, strands of strange aura pulsated on the surface of his body, and if carefully listened to, one would even be able to hear a wave of light howls of the wind.
If a Void Prying Stage martial artist was here, the martial artist would surely be able to discern with a single glance that this was the aura of Elementary Wind Force.
“Squeak squeak~” The little gold mouse hung upside down from the 10,000 Year Stalactite, and started nibble on the 10,000 Year Stalactite in boredom. After a short while, she found it uninteresting and scurried around the stalactite cave.
A clear sound resounded out, as a drop of milk had dripped down from the 10,000 Year Stalactite.
“Squeak squeak~” The little gold mouse looked at the drop of 10,000 Year Stalactite Milk that had descended into the pool, and her eyes shone brightly as she looked around the surroundings in vigilance.
Or to be more precise, she glanced at Duan Ling Tian in vigilance.
When she noticed Duan Ling Tian didn’t show any sign of awakening, the little gold mouse transformed into a gold light that flashed out, instantly swallowing the drop of 10,000 Year Stalactite Milk.
After swallowing the 10,000 Year Stalactite Milk, the little gold mouse lay on the floor and dozed off in satisfaction.
For an entire two days, Duan Ling Tian was completely immersed within his cultivation, as if he’d tossed every in the outside world to the back of his head.
In his body the Origin Energy ceaselessly flowed according the mental cultivation method of the Wind Wyrm Form, as if he forever knew nothing of exhaustion.
His Origin Energy flashed past and fiercely charged towards the last bottleneck.
But unfortunately, the bottleneck was only blasted to the point it trembled, yet there was no signs of it loosening.
“Looks like wanting to break through to the seventh level of the Nascent Soul Stage before the two year agreement with that Zither Young Master is indeed slightly unrealistic.” Duan Ling Tian opened his eyes, and a bright light flashed within.
“Big Brother Ling Tian, you’ve finally awaken.” Duan Ling Tian had only just awoken when the little gold mouse’s voice entered into his ears, then subsequently, his shoulder sank as the little gold mouse had jumped onto his shoulder.
“When is it?” Duan Ling Tian asked the little gold mouse.
“Today is the third day since you returned.” The little gold mouse blink her jade green eyes as she slowly spoke via voice transmission.
“The third day? Then isn’t today the date of the two year agreement with that Zither Young Master?” Duan Ling Tian’s pupils constricted, and with a raise of his hand, he’d grabbed the little gold mouse and stuffed her into his sleeve.
In the next moment, Duan Ling Tian’s figure flashed, seeming to transform into a gust of wind that left the peak of Megrez Peak in a short moment, then went all the way down the mountain.
“It’s soon to be noon?” Duan Ling Tian frowned as he gazed at the position of the scorching sun.
In next to no time, Duan Ling Tian had arrived nearby the Trade Hall on Megrez Peak.
The surroundings of the Trade Hall was empty without a single person.
“They ought to have gone to the peak of Dubhe Peak.” Duan Ling Tian knew clearly in his heart that today was the two year agreement with him and the Zither Young Master, Zi Shang, and the outer court disciples on Megrez Peak would have surely gone to watch the battle.
Duan Ling Tian’s eyes squinted after he stepped onto the chain bridge and flashed out for a short moment.
In the distance, there was a familiar figure dashing towards him.
“Mo Yu?” Duan Ling Tian stopped his footsteps and he was slightly surprised as he looked at the approaching person. “What are you doing here?”
“Senior Brother Duan Ling Tian.” Mo Yu stopped and respectfully bowed to Duan Ling Tian, then said, “Master asked me to come look for you… Zither Young Master, Zi Shang, has already been waiting for you for a long time.”
“Let’s go!” Duan Ling Tian nodded, then called out to Mo Yu before leaving the chain bridge and heading towards the peak of Dubhe Peak.
At the peak of Dubhe Peak.
The platform outside the Dubhe Peak Trade Hall was incredibly spacious, but today, dense amounts of people surged in it, causing the entire spacious platform to seem exceptionally cramped.
Presently, no matter if it was outer court disciples or inner court disciples, the crowd of Seven Star Sword Sect disciples were all gathered around the life and death arena.
Tens of figures floated in the air surrounding the life and death arena, and they were all the higher-ups of the Seven Star Sword Sect.
With the Sect Leader, Linghu Jin Hong, in the lead, all the Peak Masters of the other six peaks besides Alkaid Peak were gathered here.
For example, the Mizar Peak’s Master, Zheng Fan, and the Phecda Peak’s Master, Ke Zhen, were shockingly present.
Besides the Peak Masters of the six peaks, there were also the outer court elders of the seven great outer court sword peaks and some Dubhe Peak inner court elders.
For example, the Megrez Peak outer court elders, Lu Qiu and Zhao Lin, and the Alkaid Peak’s outer court elder, Elder Bi, had all come.
