Translator: KurazyTolanzuraytor Editor: Jay
“Ge Lu, Ge Lu!” When Ba Er noticed Ge Lu had no reaction after he sent a voice transmission into Ge Lu’s ears, he hurriedly change to shouting in a stern voice.
But no matter how he shouted, Ge Lu didn’t have the slightest reaction.
Right at this moment, a wave of a breeze blew past the imperial garden, and breeze that ought to have made others feel refreshed, instead seemed to have transformed into a wave of chilly wind at this moment.
Besides Ge Lu’s muttering and begging for mercy, only Ba Er’s ceaseless shouts remained in the imperial garden.
“You… What exactly did you do?” Ba Er’s gaze moved from Ge Lu’s to descend onto Duan Ling Tian and he asked with a shout.
Ba Er’s voice contained traces of trembling mixed within.
At this time, if he still didn’t know that the young man by the Emperor’s side was the one that did it, then he would have lived so many years in vain…
But the methods of this young man caused him to feel a chill run down his spine.
The young man only sat on the spot without moving at all, and only a stern shout had made Ge Lu kneel down on the floor before shivering and ceaselessly begging for mercy.
What ability is this?
Instantly, this thought emerged within the minds of everyone present at almost the exact same time, and as soon as the thought emerged, it rooted itself to their minds and was difficult to cast aside.
‘Could it be that Senior Brother Duan Ling Tian really knows Demonic Techniques?’ The scene before him similarly exceeded Mo Yu’s expectations.
Meanwhile, Mo Yu couldn’t help but recall the scenes he saw on the life and death arena on the peak of the Seven Star Sword Sect’s Dubhe Peak a few days ago…
The two year agreement between Senior Brother Duan Ling Tian and Zither Young Master.
Zither Young Master had suddenly lost his mind and could only be forced to lose at Duan Ling Tian’s hands.
At that time, most of the members of the Seven Star Sword Sect including Mo Yu had thought that Zither Young Master had really lost his mind, thus he lost to Duan Ling Tian.
But now, Mo Yu didn’t think like this any longer.
He recalled the scene from that time.
‘When that Zither Young Master left, he said repeatedly that Senior Brother Duan Ling Tian knows Demonic Techniques… Looks like Senior Brother Duan Ling Tian really knows Demonic Techniques. No, perhaps it’s only an ability that is difficult for me to understand.’ Mo Yu’s heart trembled, and the gaze he shot at Duan Ling Tian became even more reverent.
Besides Princess Bi Yao, everyone else including the Emperor, Nie Yuan, and Nie Fen, felt a chill run down their spines when they looked at Duan Ling Tian.
The scene before their eyes was too bizarre.
“Now, do you still think I’m arrogant?” Duan Ling Tian gazed over calmly when faced with Ba Er’s question, and he asked indifferently.
Now, do you still think I’m arrogant?
Duan Ling Tian’s words entered into the ears of everyone present, and it caused them to be unable to refrain from recalling the words Duan Ling Tian spoke to Ge Lu earlier.
‘If you want me to come down, then it will depend on if you have the qualifications…’
At that time, the first thought that came to mind when the people present heard this was — arrogant!
Duan Ling Tian was too arrogant!
At that time, no one thought that Duan Ling Tian would be able to defeat Ge Lu without going down to the center.
But now, the people present all came to a sudden understanding.
So it turned out that Duan Ling Tian wasn’t arrogant, but he really had the ability.
The facts proved that Ge Lu indeed didn’t possess the qualifications to make Duan Ling Tian come down!
“You…” Ba Er couldn’t help but be infuriated when he heard Duan Ling Tian, yet he had no way of refuting, and coldness silently rose within his heart.
“Who exactly are you?” Ba Er took a deep breath and asked in a deep voice. “Are you really a member of the Crimson Sky Kingdom?”
“What? Do you want to doubt whether I’m a member of the Crimson Sky Kingdom like you doubted my Junior Brother?” Duan Ling Tian couldn’t help but laugh as his eyes emitted a wisp of disdain.
He’d always looked down on people who couldn’t accept defeat.
“Tsk tsk… Ambassador of the Sun Ascent Kingdom, you wouldn’t be unable to accept defeat, right? You actually dare doubt whether he’s a member of the Crimson Sky Kingdom or not? Perhaps, you don’t have any impression of the name Duan Ling Tian, but you ought to have heard of Commander Duan of our Crimson Sky Kingdom’s Embroidered Uniform Guard from a few years ago, right?”
“You ought to have heard of the genius Star Mastermind Department student of our Crimson Sky Kingdom’s Paladin Academy that didn’t waste a single soldier to capture the Southern Champion Kingdom’s Southern Barbaric City, right?”
“You ought to have heard of the peerless genius that gave rise to much discussion in our Crimson Sky Kingdom a few years ago, right?” At the Xiao Clan’s table, Xiao Xun had a disdainful expression as he looked at Ba Er and spoke sarcastically.
Early on when Xiao Xun hadn’t finished speaking, the face of the Sun Ascent Kingdom’s ambassador, Ba Er, had become gloomy.
As soon as Xiao Xun finished speaking, he looked at Duan Ling Tian as if he’d seen a ghost. “You… You’re that monster, Duan Ling Tian, that was widely known throughout the Crimson Sky Kingdom a few years ago? No wonder when I heard them call out to you before the friendly martial competition started today, I felt that your name seemed to be familiar… It’s actually you, you’ve actually returned!”
When Duan Ling Tian had followed the Emperor to arrive at the Imperial Garden earlier, Xiao Xun and Xiao Yu had once called out his name.
So, Ba Er had an impression of it.
Presently, Ba Er’s extremely unsightly expression was undoubtedly displaying that Be Er had once heard of Duan Ling Tian’s deeds.
Moreover, he knew that Duan Ling Tian had left the Crimson Sky Kingdom a few years ago.
“I never expected that the Sun Ascent Kingdom’s ambassador knows of me… I’m truly overwhelmed with the unexpected favor.” Duan Ling Tian glanced indifferently at Ba Er, and he had a carefree expression that seemed as if it wouldn’t change even if Mt.Tai collapsed before him.
Be Er had a long face as he knew clearly in his heart that he’d failed, that the Sun Ascent Kingdom had failed!
The plan engineered by their Sun Ascent that could be considered to be perfect had completely failed because of Duan Ling Tian who was an external factor to the plan…
They suffered a crushing defeat!
“Your Majesty of the Crimson Sky Kingdom, our Sun Ascent Kingdom admits defeat. I’ll return right now and ask our Kingdom’s Emperor to send over the three year of taxes that belongs to the Crimson Sky Kingdom.” Ba Er took a deep breath, and he intended to leave after bowing to the Emperor.
However, Ge Lu knelt there and remained unmoved, causing him to feel a wave of headache.
He gritted his teeth and didn’t swallow his pride to ask Duan Ling Tian to stop in the end. Ba Er raised his hand and knocked Ge Lu out, then carried Ge Lu and Ha Yi who were knocked out before leaving in a sorry state with Zha Mu.
“Hahahaha…” Most of the people from the Crimson Sky Kingdom, including the Emperor, couldn’t refrain from bursting into laughter when they saw Ba Er and Zha Mu’s sorry figures disappearing into the distance.
They laughed without restraint, they laughed proudly and in satisfaction.
After a short moment, the Emperor returned to his senses and looked at Duan Ling Tian with a complicated gaze. “Commander Duan, how did you do it earlier?”
How did I do it?
Duan Ling Tian’s raised when he heard the Emperor, and he recalled the scene from before.
Earlier, when the Sun Ascent Kingdom’s young genius, Ge Lu, provoked him, he’d utilized his Spiritual Force to fuse into the soul brand and execute the soul skill, Thousand Illusions.
Once Thousand Illusions was utilized, not to mention a mere first level Nascent Soul Stage martial artist, even a first level Void Prying Stage martial artist that wasn’t an Inscription Master would be unable to guard against it…
Of course, if it was a first level Void Prying Stage martial artist, then because of the martial artist’s soul being comparatively stronger, even if Duan Ling Tian utilized the soul skill, Thousand Illusions, it wouldn’t come to the extent that the martial artist would be in a sorry state like Ge Lu.
Ge Lu was only a first level Nascent Soul Stage martial artist, and before Duan Ling Tian’s Spiritual Force, Ge Lu’s Spiritual Force was like a child facing an adult.
Duan Ling Tian’s Spiritual Force crushed Ge Lu’s Spiritual Force in every aspect, and Duan Ling Tian was able to willfully trample upon Ge Lu.
Earlier, Duan Ling Tian had precisely build an extremely terrifying illusion space with the soul skill, Thousand Illusions, and used it to envelop Ge Lu.
Within that illusions space, Ge Lu only persisted for a short moment before his spirit completely collapsed and he knelt on the ground begging for mercy.
When he returned to his senses, Duan Ling Tian noticed that it wasn’t just the Emperor, the gazes of every present has descended onto him in unison.
Obviously, they were extremely curious.
“I don’t know how to explain that ability of mine… All of you can take it as a Demonic Technique.” Duan Ling Tian shrugged as he spoke slowly.
The people present didn’t continue asking when they discerned that Duan Ling Tian was unwilling to say any more.
After all, everyone had a secret that belonged to themselves, and getting to the bottom of it would only cause others to feel detest.
“Alas. Big Brother Ling Tian, when will my Spiritual Force be able to break through to the Void Initiation Stage…? If my Spiritual Force is able to break through to the Void Initiation Stage, then I’ll be able to awaken my soul brand and comprehend soul skills. Hehe… At that time, I want to go and scare people as well.” The naïve voice of a young girl that belonged to the little gold mouse entered into Duan Ling Tian’s ears.
But, when this naïve voice entered into Duan Ling Tian’s ears, it caused him to feel a slight chill run down his spine.
This Little Gold isn’t a good person in the first place.
If she were to awaken her soul brand and comprehend soul skills, then wouldn’t she become extremely cocky?
“I’m happy today, prepare a banquet at noon, and we’ll consider it as welcoming Commander Duan and his Junior Brother… Divine Might Marquis and everyone, all of you stay back and join the welcoming dinner for Commander Duan and his Junior Brother.” The Emperor had a brilliant smile on his face as he spoke to everyone present.
“Yes, your Majesty.” There was naturally no one who would refuse the Emperor’s invitation.
Subsequently, the Emperor gave the command, and the eunuchs and maids in the Imperial Palace went to prepare to banquet.
During the welcoming banquet, Duan Ling Tian and Mo Yu became the absolute center of attention…
Especially the Patriarchs of the three great clans even beat around the bush as they asked Mo Yu if he was engaged, causing Mo Yu to flush red with embarrassment and find it difficult to deal with.
“Senior Brother Duan Ling Tian…” Mo Yu could only seek help from Duan Ling Tian.
However, Duan Ling Tian himself was busy enough dealing with them, so would he help Mo Yu? He instead pushed Mo Yu into the pit of hell. “Mo Yu, I think that the three Patriarchs are correct, you aren’t young any longer, even if you don’t get married, setting up a few marriages is a good thing as well.”
“Right, right!” The three Patriarchs hurriedly agreed, and the gaze they shot at Mo Yu was simply like wolves who’d seen a little sheep.
When he saw this, Mo Yu could only say to himself. “I’ve been careless in making friends.”
“Commander Duan, accompany Bi Yao for a walk.” The Emperor looked at Princess Bi Yao then looked at Duan Ling Tian, and his gaze was complicated.
During these few years, he’d wanted to find a groom for his daughter on many occasions, but this daughter of his only thought of Duan Ling Tian every day.
This caused him who was the father to be exceedingly helpless.
How could Duan Ling Tian not be able to discern the Emperor’s thoughts, and when he saw the anticipation in Princess Bi Yao’s eyes, he nodded and stood up before leaving the banquet with Princess Bi Yao.
