Chapter 465: Kneel!!
Translator: KurazyTolanzuraytor Editor: Jay
“I truly never imagined that Mo Yu has actually cultivated the Minor Seven Star Sword Technique to the Perfection Stage…” Duan Ling Tian was slightly surprised.
He was able to discern that in terms of cultivated stage, the Minor Seven Star Sword Technique that Mo Yu executed earlier was already not inferior to the Minor Seven Star Sword Technique the traitor, Huang Ji, executed during the Martial Competition of the five great sects.
“Martial Competition of the Five Great Sects…” Duan Ling Tian couldn’t help but sigh in his heart when he recalled the scenes from the Martial Competition of the five great sects one year ago.
Presently, only three out of the five great sects still remained.
Moreover, the remaining sects had combined together to form a monolithic whole…
“Why would the Origin Convergence Sect, Demonic Lotusblade Sect, and Snow Moon Sect choose to combine together?” Now, when he recalled the scenes on the peak of Dubhe Peak, Duan Ling Tian still felt it was difficult to understand.
Logically speaking, no matter if it was the Origin Convergence Sect, Demonic Lotusblade Sect, or Snow Moon Sect, there were all sects that had been inherited for over a thousand years, and it was impossible for them to easily abandon the ‘name’ of their respective sects and choose to combine their sects…
“There’s surely a secret within it.” Duan Ling Tian said to himself.
“In the future, so long as I have the strength to annihilate the three great sects that have combined together, I’ll naturally be able to know the reason.” Killing intent flashed within Duan Ling Tian’s eyes before he withdrew his thoughts, and his gaze once again descended onto Mo Yu as he muttered in his heart. “Sect Leader, don’t worry. I’ll assist Mo Yu in rebuilding the Seven Star Sword Sect. Mo Yu is extremely good, extremely outstanding, and you can rest in peace in the netherworld.”
“Mo Yu…” At the table of the Divine Might Marquis Estate, Nie Yuan and Nie Fen looked at each other, and they both saw the shock in each other’s eyes.
Although they were mentally prepared since long ago, when they saw Mo Yu defeat Ge Lu with their own two eyes, they couldn’t help but be shocked in their hearts.
This is a person that has come from a sect in the Azure Forest Imperial Kingdom?
Are all the people that come from sects in the Azure Forest Imperial Kingdom so abnormal?
The corners of Nie Yuan and Nie Fen’s mouth simultaneously curled into a bitter smile, as they both felt that most of their lifetime had been wasted.
When he saw Mo Yu defeat Ge Lu, Duan Ling Tian thought that this farce would come to an end.
As far as he was concerned, the co-called friendly martial competition between the young geniuses of the two kingdoms could indeed only be considered as a farce.
However, the ambassador of the Sun Ascent Kingdom seemed to not be resigned.
“You’re called Mo Yu?” The Sun Ascent Kingdom’s ambassador, Ba Er, looked at Mo Yu with a burning gaze as he asked in a deep voice.
Mo Yu nodded indifferently.
“Are you a member of the Crimson Sky Kingdom?” Ba Er suddenly took a step forward, then his imposing manner as a Half-step Void Stage martial artist swept out to envelop Mo Yu.
His pair of fierce eyes stared fixedly at Mo Yu, as if he wanted to discern if Mo Yu was lying from the changes in Mo Yu’s expression.
Ba Er’s actions had exceeded the expectations of everyone.
Instantly, everyone from the Crimson Sky Kingdom became grim.
“Ambassador Ba Er, what is the meaning of this?” Nie Yuan was the first to be unable to endure it, and his face sank as he asked with a low shout.
“Divine Might Marquis, I only want to know the background of this Brother Mo Yu… I presume that since Brother Mo Yu was able to possess this cultivation at such a young age, he isn’t an ordinary person. But I’ve been in the Crimson Sky Kingdom for many days, yet I’ve never heard of any rumors related to him.” Ba Er’s gaze never left Mo Yu as he spoke with a calm tone. “This time, it’s the friendly martial competition between the young geniuses of my Sun Ascent Kingdom and your Crimson Sky Kingdom… If a person that isn’t from the Crimson Sky Kingdom interferes, then it seems to go against the intention of the agreement between me and his Majesty of the Crimson Sky Kingdom, right?”
Mo Yu was only around the age of 23 and possessed a cultivation at the first level of the Nascent Soul Stage, and he’d even mastered a marvelous sword skill that caused one to acclaim it to be at the acme of perfection.
As far as Ba Er was concerned, if Mo Yu was from the Crimson Sky Kingdom, then Mo Yu’s name would have surely spread throughout the Crimson Sky Kingdom since long ago, and not be unknown to the public like he is today.
When Mo Yu appeared earlier, he noticed that most of the people from the Crimson Sky Kingdom didn’t recognize Mo Yu, and he’d started to suspect Mo Yu since that moment.
It was fine if Mo Yu had lost at the hands of Ge Lu, but Mo Yu had won now.
According to the wager of the friendly martial competition between the young geniuses of the two kingdoms, if the young geniuses of the Crimson Sky Kingdom were victorious, then the Sun Ascent Kingdom would lose three years’ worth of taxes to the Crimson Sky Kingdom.
Three years of tax wasn’t a small amount, and he was naturally unwilling to submissively give it to the Crimson Sky Kingdom like this.
Moreover, he came this time for the sake of winning this wager.
Now that he had the chance to overthrow the fact that the Crimson Sky Kingdom had won, so he naturally wouldn’t let go of it.
“You members of the Sun Ascent Kingdom are such sore losers?”
“Hmph! Hmph! Looks like your Sun Ascent Kingdom intends to go back on your word.”
The disciples of the three great clans of the Crimson Sky Kingdom were filled with righteous indignation as they let out a torrent of abuse.
Ba Er’s face remained unchanged as he said indifferently, “Everyone, I’m only stating a fact… So long as Brother Mo Yu is from the Crimson Sky Kingdom, then my Sun Ascent Kingdom is naturally willing to admit defeat.”
Ba Er stared fixedly at Mo Yu, and his sharp gaze seemed to want to penetrate into Mo Yu’s heart.
“Brother Mo Yu, are you a member of the Crimson Sky Kingdom?” Ba Er asked once more.
“No.” Mo Yu shook his head and said indifferently, “I’m only representing my Senior Brother… I have no objections if you feel that I’m not a member of the Crimson Sky Kingdom and this battle isn’t valid. Of course, in this way, the young genius of your Sun Ascent Kingdom will have to fight my Senior Brother.”
Mo Yu’s words caused Ba Er’s face to sink.
At the first possible moment, Ba Er looked at Duan Ling Tian who sat by the Emperor’s side.
“This young man is the Junior Brother of Duan Ling Tian?” The members of the Crimson Sky Kingdom’s three great sects came to a sudden understanding when they heard Mo Yu.
“You are?” At the same time that Ba Er looked at Duan Ling Tian, his imposing manner swept out to press onto Duan Ling Tian.
Duan Ling Tian glanced indifferently at Ba Er. “Is it fun?”
Is it fun?
Ba Er was stunned.
This young man actually said he was playing?
However, he was able to discern that this young man wasn’t affected by his imposing manner in the slightest, and the young man’s cultivation was obviously not low.
“Since your Junior Brother isn’t a member of the Crimson Sky Kingdom, then his battle with Ge Lu earlier isn’t valid… What do you think?” Ba Er glanced deeply at Duan Ling Tian as he spoke slowly.
“If you’re not convinced, then you can ask him to battle me.” Duan Ling Tian’s tone was indifferent as if he was speaking of a trivial matter.
Ba Er frowned when he saw Duan Ling Tian was so confident.
In the end, he still nodded and looked at Ge Lu. “Ge Lu, battle this young genius of the Crimson Sky Kingdom.”
Ba Er understood that this was his last chance.
Moreover, he didn’t dare believe that the young man that Mo Yu addressed as Senior Brother would have a cultivation that was stronger than Mo Yu.
This young man’s age was similar to Mo Yu.
Although Mo Yu addressed him respectfully as Senior Brother, but who knew if it was due to manners and not because the young man had a strength that was stronger than Mo Yu.
So no matter what, he still wanted to try.
“Yes.” Ge Lu nodded and returned to the center, then he looked at Duan Ling Tian with a serious expression. “Please come down and provide me with your advice.”
With the earlier experience taken from Mo Yu, he didn’t dare underestimate his opponent just because his opponent was young.
Meanwhile, Mo Yu returned to sit down by Nie Yuan’s side, then three of them looked at Ge Lu with a ridiculing gaze…
The Emperor and Princess Bi Yao who sat by Duan Ling Tian’s side, and the members of the three great clans were all looking at Duan Ling Tian with interest.
“Come down?” Duan Ling Tian glanced lazily at Ge Lu then said indifferently, “If you want me to come down, then it will depend on if you have the qualifications…”
“Hmm?” The scene went deathly silent when Duan Ling Tian said this.
Just to come down to the battlegrounds depended on if his enemy possessed the qualifications?
Only these thoughts remained in their hearts.
‘Duan Ling Tian has only left for a few years and he’s actually become so arrogant?’ The people from the three great clans were all dumbstruck.
The Emperor and Princess Bi Yao couldn’t help but be stunned as well.
The Duan Ling Tian in their memories seemed to not be a person like this…
At this moment, even Nie Yuan, Nie Fen, and Mo Wu were stunned, as they didn’t know why Duan Ling Tian would suddenly say this.
Although they knew that Duan Ling Tian’s strength was sufficient to crush Ge Lu, it still required him to go down to the center, right?
Now, Duan Ling Tian seemed to now even have the intention to go down to the battle ground at the center.
“Kid, you’re too arrogant!” The Sun Ascent Kingdom’s ambassador, Ba Er, and Ge Lu spoke out at almost the exact same time, and their expressions were extremely unsightly.
They’d seen arrogant people, but they’d really never seen such an arrogant person…
“Then I’m curious, how do you see if I have the qualifications to make you come down?” Ge Lu looked at Duan Ling Tian with a cold gaze.
Right at the instant that Ge Lu spoke, Duan Ling Tian’s eyes squinted and two dim lights seemed like two nether flames that blazed…
At the instant that Ge Lu finished speaking.
“Kneel!!” Duan Ling Tian shouted out coldly.
The ear piercing sound spread through the entire imperial garden, and it shocked the ear drums of the people present to the point their ear drums vibrated intensely.
The people present hadn’t reacted to this when they saw a scene that was unforgettable in their entire lifetime.
Ge Lu who was originally arrogant had knelt down on the ground with a thump, and his body was shivering as he mumbled. “No… Don’t… Don’t kill me… Don’t kill me…”
Ge Lu’s voice was filled with extreme terror and it caused others to feel a chill run down their spine when they heard this.
He seemed as if he’d encountered an extremely terrifying thing.
“This…” Besides Duan Ling Tian and Ge Lu who were the people concerned, everyone present was dumbstruck.
What’s going on?
Why did this Ge Lu kneel when Duan Ling Tian asked him to kneel?
Moreover, Ge Lu seemed to be extremely terrified when facing Duan Ling Tian.
No one knew what had happened.
All this came too suddenly!
“Ge Lu, Ge Lu!” The Sun Ascent Kingdom’s ambassador, Ba Er’s, face was gloomy and he hurriedly sent a voice transmission into Ge Lu’s ears, wanting to wake Ge Lu up.
But, Ge Lu seemed to have not perceived it at all, and he still knelt there shivering while he mumbled. “I’ve knelt… I’ve already knelt… Don’t kill me… I don’t want to die… I don’t want to die!!”
