Translator: KurazyTolanzuraytor Editor: Jay
“Little fellow, let’s go!” A wave of violent wind assaulted him. The wings of the Grand Roc that were like clouds that covered the sky crashed down to sweep away all the Azure Forest Tri-Sect members around Duan Ling Tian. The terrifying force swept out, causing many people to be directly knocked out.
In the next moment, Duan Ling Tian felt his body become light as he was heaved up by the Grand Roc.
“Mo Yu!” At the same time that the Grand Roc rose into the sky, Duan Ling Tian’s hand shot out like a bolt of lightning to grab onto the nearby Mo Yu, then pulled him up onto the Grand Roc’s back with him.
“Escort Duan Ling Tian!” The Mizar Peak’s Master, Zheng Fan, and the Merak Peak’s Master, Ke Zhen, looked at each other, then they flashed out to descend onto the Grand Roc at the same time. They forced back all the Azure Forest Tri-Sect elders that pounced towards them.
Right at this moment, a figure that was like a bolt of lightning flashed over from afar and descended firmly onto the back of the Grand Roc.
Duan Ling Tian’s face was gloomy when he saw this person. “Zhao Lin!”
The person that had appeared on the back of the Grand Roc now was none other than the Megrez Peak outer court elder, Zhao Lin, who had irreconcilable enmity with Duan Ling Tian.
“Duan Ling Tian, you destroyed my son’s life. I’ll send you to hell!” Zhao Lin revealed an insane expression, then swung his hand out. Terrifying Origin Energy roared as it swept towards Duan Ling Tian with an imposing aura that shot to the sky like a rainbow.
Above him, 4,200 ancient mammoth silhouettes condensed into form.
Zhao Lin had obviously broken through to the third level of the Nascent Soul Stage.
Moreover, he’d executed Elementary Force.
Duan Ling Tian’s face was white.
His soul skill, Thousand Illusions, was completely useless against Zhao Lin.
“Squeak squeak~” The little gold mouse flashed out from beneath Duan Ling Tian’s sleeve, then she transformed into an incomparably swift gold light that directly moved to intercept Zhao Lin, and the sound of thunder tore open the sky.
In the sky, 4,500 ancient mammoth silhouettes condensed into form…
At present, the little gold mouse had already broken through to the third level of the Void Prying Stage, and her Half-step Advanced Lightning Force moved out with her.
An enormous bang resounded out as the terrifying Origin Energy collided with each other, the airflow in the sky flew out, transforming into circle after circle of ripples that undulated and swept out. A terrifying strong wind swept towards the surroundings.
In the collision between Zhao Lin and the little gold mouse, the little gold mouse slightly took the advantage.
“Who?!” Zhao Lin never expected that Duan Ling Tian actually had an expert protecting him. Zhao Lin’s face was dark as he noticed the little gold mouse that stood on Duan Ling Tian’s shoulder with a single glance, and his gaze became slightly cold. “Little mouse, you’re courting death!”
As soon as he finished speaking, a spirit sword appeared in Zhao Li’s hand. With the raise of his arm, he intended to attack again.
“It’s you who’s courting death!” Right at this moment, an extremely terrifying force swept out to crash onto Zhao Lin and blasted him flying.
Zhao Lin was utterly incapable of going against this force, and his vital signs became weak as he flew out like an arrow that had left the bow.
Obviously, it was impossible for him to survive this.
“Lin!” Right at this moment, an explosive shout sounded out from high in the sky.
After Elder Ming noticed Zhao Lin was heavily injured and close to death, his fifth level Wind Concept combined with his Origin Energy to sweep out, and temporarily forced his opponents to retreat before flying out to catch Zhao Lin.
“Zheng Fan, why did you kill my grandson?” Elder Ming’s gaze was incomparably cold as he stared at Zheng Fan, who rose into the air with the Grand Roc.
Earlier, it was exactly Zheng Fan who blasted Zhao Lin flying. He attacked without holding back in the slightest, shattering Zhao Lin’s internal organs and causing him to have no way of surviving.
“Elder Ming, everyone from our Seven Star Sword Sect is fighting desperately now just for the sake of sending Duan Ling Tian off! Whereas your grandson actually attacked Duan Ling Tian with a killing blow just for the sake of his own selfish interests… Don’t you think he deserves death?” Zheng Fan’s gaze was incomparably frosty as he answered with a deep shout.
“Lin, is it really like this?” Elder Ming’s face was gloomy as he gaze at Zhao Lin in his arms, and he had an expression of being disappointed.
Elder Peng’s wings that were like clouds that covered the entire sky swept out, giving rise to a gust of violent winds as his enormous figure flashed out, and it caused Duan Ling Tian to feel as if he was riding on the clouds and mist.
The piercingly cold strong winds that assaulted his face almost tore him to pieces, and Mo Yu who stood by his side had an extremely unsightly expression as well.
Now, for the sake of carrying them to safety, Elder Peng didn’t intentionally slow down his speed, instead flying at full speed.
“Duan Ling Tian, Mo Yu, live well… The future of the Seven Star Sword Sect is carried by both of you.” Zheng Fan and Ke Zheng nodded to Duan Ling Tian and Mo Yu, then they flew off the Grand Roc and pounced towards the elders of the Azure Forest Tri-Sect, launching a bloody slaughter.
They were resolved to live and die with the Seven Star Sword Sect.
“No!!” Duan Ling Tian’s expression was livid when he saw Zheng Fan and Ke Zhen’s figures were drowned within the crowd of Azure Forest Tri-Sect members, and his expression was extremely unsightly.
“Not good!” Suddenly, Duan Ling Tian seemed to have noticed something, and he shuddered as he looked towards the distance.
There was a figure swiftly flashed towards them from there, and the person’s speed was so swift it caused his face to become gloomier.
Behind the Grand Roc, the Demonic Lotusblade Sect’s Leader who was unrestrained after Elder Ming withdrew had flashed out with eyes that emitted gushing killing intent, and he followed closely behind the Grand Roc.
“Duan Ling Tian, you’re dead!” The Demonic Lotusblade Sect’s Leader’s voice seemed like the voice of an asura from hell, and it was incomparably gloomy.
He’d followed the Grand Roc purely for the sake of killing Duan Ling Tian.
He could imagine that if Duan Ling Tian didn’t die today, then not to mention he personally couldn’t rest easy, even the Azure Forest Tri-Sect would surely be unable to be at peace in the future.
Unfortunately, the Grand Roc’s speed was too swift. Even as he flashed out with full force, the Grand Roc still gradually pulled open the distance between them.
“Dammit!” The expression of the Demonic Lotusblade Sect’s Leader was extremely unsightly, yet he still desperately gave chase,only giving up when the figure of the Grand Roc disappeared before his eyes.
“We actually allowed Duan Ling Tian to flee… Damn Linghu Jin Hong, damn Seven Star Sword Sect!” The Demonic Lotusblade Sect’s Leader suddenly turned around and returned to the Seven Star Sword Sect.
“Grandfather… Duan Ling Tian caused our Zhao Clan’s family line to be cut off… Ke’s family jewels were crippled by him… Grandfather, avenge Ke, avenge me…” Zhao Lin lay in Elder Ming’s embrace and struggled to speak. In the end, he didn’t finish speaking when he breathed his last breath.
“Lin, Lin!!” Elder Ming roared towards the sky with a voice that was filled with misery.
“I, Zhao Ming, dedicated my entire life to the Seven Star Sword Sect… But in the end, my grandson was killed by members of the Seven Star Sword Sect, my great grandson was crippled by the ‘hope’ of the Seven Star Sword Sect! Laughable, laughable… HAHAHAHA!…” As he laughed loudly, Elder Ming flew out and arrived at the side of the grey clothed old man, Elder Xuan, in the blink of an eye.
Presently, Elder Xuan was going against three sixth level Void Initiation Stage experts and was gradually falling into a disadvantaged position, and he heaved a sigh of relief when he saw the arrival of Elder Ming.
But in the next moment, his expression became pale.
Only because Elder Ming’s attacks wasn’t towards his opponents, but was instead towards him.
Elder Ming’s palm strike that contained his fifth level Wind Concept smashed onto Elder Xuan, directly heavily injuring Elder Xuan who wasn’t on guard against him in the slightest.
“Zhao Ming, have you gone mad?” Elder Xuan’s face was deathly pale, his signs of life were weakening, and his expression was extremely unsightly.
He never imagined that Zhao Lin would attack him.
All the three Azure Forest Tri-Sect experts including Lu Yuan who were in combat with Elder Xuan earlier were shocked by Zhao Ming’s actions.
After a short moment, they finally reacted.
“HAHA! Elder Ming, so long as you help us eliminate the Seven Star Sword Sect today, then our Azure Forest Tri-Sect is willing to receive you as a Guardian Elder!” Lu Yuan laughed loudly as the scene before him caused him to be extremely pleasantly surprised.
Subsequently, Lu Yuan and the others attacked once again, they cooperated with Zhao Ming and only spent a few breaths of time to kill Elder Xuan.
Elder Xuan, the number one expert of the Seven Star Sword Sect, dead!
He died at the hands of four sixth level Void Initiation Stage experts.
“Zhao Ming!!” Zhao Ming joining forces with Lu Yuan and the others to kill Elder Xuan caused Linghu Jin Hong’s eyes to almost split apart. “Are you worthy of the fostering of the sect ancestors? Are you worthy of the fostering of the sect?”
“Sect?” Zhao Lin laughed in ridicule. “What sect!? My great grandson was crippled by a member of the Seven Star Sword Sect, my son was killed by a member of the Seven Star Sword Sect… Since the Seven Star Sword Sect is heartless to me, then I’ll be disloyal to the Seven Star Sword Sect! Linghu Jin Hong, die!” As soon as he finished speaking, Zhao Ming seemed to transform into a gust of wind that blew away the clouds and mist on the horizon, then swept towards Linghu Jin Hong.
The other experts flashed towards Linghu Jin Hong as well.
“Sect Leader!” Everyone from the Seven Star Sword Sect exclaimed in sorrow and despair.
“HAHAHAHA! I, Linghu Jin Hong, will go first, and await the arrival of all of you in the road to hell… All of you prepare well to greet the flames of Duan Ling Tian’s rage in the future! HAHAHAHA!” The instant before he was killed, Linghu Jin Hong laughed loudly and wantonly, and he wasn’t afraid in the slightest. All that remained in him was sorrow, heroism, and his confidence in Duan Ling Tian.
Along with Linghu Jin Hong being killed, the fierce battle continued, yet the outcome was already decided.
The Seven Star Sword Sect was annihilated!
At a place extremely far from the Seven Star Sword Sect, within a vast desolate desert, an enormous figure that was incomparably swift plunged downwards to descend onto the boundless ground.
This was a Grand Roc, and it possessed eyes that were like lightning and extremely fierce.
“You two little fellows take care of yourselves… I’ll leave the future of the Seven Star Sword Sect to the both of you.” The Grand Roc unfolded his wings and pulled the two people on his back to the ground.
These people that were pulled down were precisely Duan Ling Tian and Mo Yu who’d escaped from the Seven Star Sword Sect.
On Duan Ling Tian’s shoulder, the little gold mouse lay there dispirited.
“Elder Peng, you…” Duan Ling Tian seemed to have perceived something when he heard the Grand Roc’s voice transmission, and his face went even more pale.
Right when he intended to persuade the Grand Roc to stay.
The Grand Roc’s wings unfolded like clouds that could blot out the sky, and he soared into the sky.
At the same time, a voice transmission clearly entered into Duan Ling Tian’s ears. “My life was given to me by the Seven Star Sword Sect… It’s impossible for me to not get involved and watch idly by at the time of crisis of the Seven Star Sword Sect. Little fellow, with your natural talent, your future is immeasurable…”
“You are the hope of the Seven Star Sword Sect!”
Elder Peng had left, bringing along his resolute will, his will to live and die with the Seven Star Sword Sect.
“Elder Peng!” Duan Ling Tian’s heart trembled for no reason when he saw the Grand Roc charge into the clouds and vanish before his eyes.
Meanwhile, numerous figures that had given up their lives fearlessly for him involuntarily flashed within his mind, and it caused his eyes to once again turn dark red…
They’d all died so that he could live.
An inexplicably large burden had unknowingly pressed onto his shoulders.
It was like an enormous mountain pressing down onto him, causing him to be unable to catch his breath.
