Chapter 497: Black Horse
Translator: KurazyTolanzuraytor Editor: Jay
Obviously, the background of this young man in embroidered clothes wasn’t simple.
However, was Duan Ling Tian the type of person that would throw his dignity beneath another’s feet and allow another to trample upon him due to being afraid of another’s background?
The answer was no!
“Kid!” The middle aged man’s face sank when he saw Duan Ling Tian was so insensible, then he shouted in a cold voice. “Do you know who my Young Master is? Let me tell you, my Young Master isn’t someone a lowly commoner like you can offend… If you’re sensible then quickly f**k off, or it might be too late to regret!”
“Too late to regret?” Duan Ling Tian put away the 10,000 gold in his hand then glanced indifferently at the middle aged man that was bloated with arrogance, and his face held a smile since the beginning. “Then I’m curious, exactly how will you make me feel it’s too late for regret?”
Duan Ling Tian’s mood was extremely bad because his meal was disturbed.
“Kid, you’re courting death!” The middle aged man’s face sank as he shouted out explosively, then his body inclined forward as his hand descended like fans, enveloping Duan Ling Tian as it approached menacingly.
Above him, 1,500 lifelike ancient mammoth silhouettes condensed into form.
This middle aged man was obviously a Half-step Void Stage martial artist!
Meanwhile, the customers in the restaurant that saw this scene couldn’t help but shake their heads and sigh. They sighed that Duan Ling Tian was too arrogant and didn’t know how to bide his time and had bitten off more than he could chew.
“Half-step Void Stage?” The corners of Duan Ling Tian’s mouth curled into an arc when he saw the middle aged man attacking him, and there was slight disdain mixed within the arc.
The middle aged man’s palm descended with raging Origin Energy twined around it, and it carried the force to split a mountain as it flashed towards Duan Ling Tian’s chest, desiring to blast Duan Ling Tian out of the restaurant with a single slap.
“Who is courting death is still uncertain.” Right at this crucial moment, Duan Ling Tian spoke with a slightly lazy tone.
Subsequently, the people present noticed to their shock that above the violet clothed young man that spoke lazily, 2,000 ancient mammoths had appeared instantly…
In the next moment, they saw the young man casually raise his hand to latch onto the middle aged man’s hand like an eagle catching a chick.
“Go down!” Subsequently, Duan Ling Tian revealed a cultivation that completely crushed the middle aged man, and after he easily latched onto the middle aged man’s hand, he casually threw the middle aged man out the window.
After the middle aged man was thrown out, the Origin Energy on his body raged, causing him to shake in midair, and he seemed as if he wanted to adjust the way his body fell.
“Hmph!” A wisp of disdain appeared on the corners of Duan Ling Tian’s mouth, and he successively pointed out with his finger with a raise of his hand.
Swish! Swish! Swish! Swish! Swish!
In an instant, numerous powerful fingers that were condensed purely from Origin Energy howled as they flew out and flashed straight towards the middle aged man.
Duan Ling Tian held back in his attack.
The middle aged man reacted and didn’t dare make any rash movements, and he allowed his body to fall while maintaining its original position…
He knew clearly in his heart that once he moved rashly, those fingers formed from Origin Energy that shot down would strike him without mercilessly and penetrate his body.
The middle aged man whose body was stiff and was terrified to the point he broke out in cold sweat fiercely fell onto the street outside the restaurant, he fell flat on his face and was in an extremely sorry state.
As expected, this scene drew the attention of the people passing by to come spectate.
Within the restaurant.
After he taught the middle aged man a lesson, Duan Ling Tian didn’t even look the other middle aged man and the young man in embroidered clothes in the face.
At this moment, the pupils of the young man in embroidered who’d maintained his composure all along couldn’t help but constrict, and he glanced deeply at Duan Ling Tian. “Brother, I never expected that your age is so young, yet you’re already a Void Prying Stage martial artist… Admirable! Admirable!”
Duan Ling Tian disregarded the young man in embroidered clothes.
The young man was slightly embarrassed, then he forced out a trace of a smile on his face. “I’m the Ji Clan’s Ji Feng, I hope that Brother can forgive my subordinate for offending you.”
“Can you not disturb my meal?” Duan Ling Tian raised his head and glanced impatiently at Ji Feng.
Ji Feng’s expression froze, then he took a deep breath and didn’t flare up. “I’m sorry. I’ll leave now, I’ll leave now.”
As he spoke, Ji Feng brought along the other middle aged man and left the restaurant.
The farce ended here, and it caused the people in the restaurant to feel slightly dissatisfied.
“I thought that Ji Clan’s Young Master Feng would avenge his subordinate… But I never expected he would instead leave with his tail between his legs! Truly disappointing.”
“According to me, this JI Clan’s Young Master Feng is an intelligent person… This young man’s cultivation has already stepped into the Void Prying Stage at such a young age! Obviously, he’s a young genius that has been recommended to the Dragon and Phoenix Academy this time.”
“I wonder which power recommended him… This young man looks to be not more than 25 years old! Even if he’s good at taking care of his appearance, I’m afraid he wouldn’t be more than 30 years old.”
“Such natural talent isn’t inferior to the five great young masters in the slightest, yet I’ve actually never heard of him before.”
The crowd of customers in the restaurant whispered in discussion, and they were all shocked by Duan Ling Tian’s cultivation.
As for Duan Ling Tian, he couldn’t be bothered to pay attention to these people.
“Not more than 30 years old?” Duan Ling Tian felt speechless in his heart.
Outside the restaurant, Ji Yu had a calm expression as he brought along the two middle aged men and walked off into the distance, and it was as if he’d already tossed the incident that occurred earlier to the back of his head.
“Young Master, that kid is too arrogant! Could it be that we’re just going to let it go like that?” The middle aged man that was thrown out of the window by Duan Ling Tian earlier had an enraged expression as he spoke while gnashing his teeth.
“Hmph!” Ji Feng glanced coldly at the middle aged man and said indifferently, “I won’t stop you if you want to go back and teach him a lesson… But, let me tell you beforehand. Even if you’re killed by him, our Ji Clan won’t stand up for you!”
The middle aged man was instantly afraid when he heard this. His head drooped, and he didn’t dare speak again.
“Next time, don’t use force to solve every problem… Use your brain more often!” Ji Feng taught the middle aged man a lesson. “That violet clothed young man possessed a cultivation at the Void Prying Stage at such a young age. He’s surely a young genius that has been recommended to the Dragon and Phoenix Academy this time… With his strength, it isn’t difficult for him to become eminent in the Dragon and Phoenix Academy! Even if this type of person can’t become a friend, he absolutely must not become an enemy!”
“Moreover, do you think that a power that can foster a young expert like this is simple?” As he finished speaking, Ji Yu’s tone obviously contained fear.
Ji Feng’s words caused the two middle aged men to nod repeatedly, and they felt heartfelt admiration.
Especially that middle aged man that was making a row about being not resigned, his face flushed crimson and felt that he’d lived these years for nothing, as he was unable to see things as clearly as his Young Master.
“However, he has probably just arrived at the Imperial City… I guess he will go register himself at the Dragon and Phoenix Academy later. Let’s go have a meal first then go register at the Dragon and Phoenix Academy. Young geniuses that came from all around the Azure Forest Imperial Kingdom, I can’t wait!” Ji Feng’s face revealed a smile as he muttered. “The other people ought to not be as abnormal as that fellow from before, right?”
Half an hour later.
Duan Ling Tian and the little gold mouse successively finished cleaning up their tables, then paid the bill and left.
“Do you know how to go to the Dragon and Phoenix Academy?” Duan Ling Tian looked at the attendant and asked.
The attendant was reverent and respectful towards Duan Ling Tian now, and he gave Duan Ling Tian the directions respectfully, not daring to be rude in the slightest.
What a joke!
The young man before him was a Void Prying Stage expert.
Although he’d seen many Void Prying Stage experts, it was the first time he’d seen such a young Void Prying Stage expert.
Moreover, the young man had just thrown the subordinate by the Ji Clan’s Young Master Feng’s side out the window, and his fierceness incurred reverence.
“Okay.” After Duan Ling Tian found out the location of the Dragon and Phoenix Academy, he nodded and looked at the 100 gold on the table from before. “Take this gold bill to pay the bill and keep the change… I never imagined that I’d only just arrived at the Imperial City and there’s already someone treating me to a meal.”
Duan Ling Tian stood up as he spoke, and he left the restaurant after the little gold mouse leaped onto his shoulder.
That 100 gold was precisely the gold left behind by the subordinate of that Young Master Feng of the Ji Clan.
“Thank you, Young Master! Thank you, Young Master!” The attendant’s face flushed when he heard Duan Ling Tian, and he was extremely excited.
It was equivalent to 10,000 silver!
It was equivalent to his salary for tens of years!
Under numerous jealous and envious gazes, the attendant took the gold bill and went to pay the bill.
“That young expert really came for the Dragon and Phoenix Academy.”
“I originally thought that one year from now, the five young genius representatives of our Azure Forest Imperial Kingdom that would head to the Darkstone Empire would be occupied by the five great young masters… Now it would seem that another black horse has appeared.”
“Five great young masters? According to me, the black horse in the younger generations of our Azure Forest Imperial Kingdom isn’t just that young expert from before. Supposedly, the Seven Star Sword Sect that has already been annihilated has a disciple that survived, and with that person’s natural talent, I’m afraid he has already broken through to the Void Prying Stage now.”
“That Seven Star Sword Sect disciples seemed to be called Duan Ling Tian, and he’d once successively defeated the Saber Young Master and Zither Young Master… Most importantly, his age is far younger than any one of the five great young masters! In terms of natural talent, no one in the history of our Azure Forest Imperial Kingdom can surpass him.”
The crowd of people in the restaurant discussed animatedly, and their words were filled with high praise towards Duan Ling Tian.
“However, even if his natural talent is great, even if he has already broken through to the Void Prying Stage now… Would he dare make an appearance? The Azure Forest Tri-Sect have been wracking their brains trying to find him, as they want to drag him out and kill him!”
“That Duan Ling Tian is so young yet he had already caused that Azure Forest Tri-Sect to be alarmed… I can imagine that if he can live on properly and mature, he’ll surely become the nightmare of the Azure Forest Tri-Sect!”
“If I was him, I’d lay dormant, and before I mature, I’ll absolutely not appear under the eyes of that Azure Forest Tri-Sect.”
“I instead hope he can come out. In the path towards the selection of the candidates for the Martial Competition of the Ten Dynasties, I’m extremely curious about how far exactly a monstrous genius like him can go…”
“I’m extremely curious as well.”
Duan Ling Tian naturally didn’t know that the crowd of people within the restaurant he just left were discussing him.
Currently, he’s already arrived outside the Dragon and Phoenix Academy.
