Chapter 498: Press Forward!
Translator: KurazyTolanzuraytor Editor: Jay
Duan Ling Tian stood on the open ground and he could see many young geniuses walking over here one after the other from all directions. Excitement and arrogance was contained between their brows.
“So many people? They’re all people that have been recommended by the various powers of the Azure Forest Imperial Kingdom?” Duan Ling Tian was shocked when he saw so many people, yet he understood with a quick thought.
“These few days are the last few days for the young geniuses of the various powers to register for the Dragon and Phoenix Academy… Many people ought to only be coming to register during these few days.” Duan Ling Tian thought in his heart and his gaze shot ahead.
There was an arched gate over there.
At the side of the gate stood a tall stele and four large words were engraved in exquisite writing on the stele…
Dragon and Phoenix Academy!
“These four words were engraved in one go without stopping, and they’re filled with a peerlessly fierce aura… I presume it was personally engraved by an expert.” Duan Ling Tian thought in his heart.
Presently, there were three old men sitting behind stone tables that were situated before the arched gate, and a brush and ink were placed neatly on the stone table.
The young geniuses that gushed over from all directions arrived one after the other before the three old men, then they withdrew their proof and passed it over for the three old men to inspect.
After they inspected that nothing was wrong, the three old men would complete the registration for them and give them a command token.
The people that obtained the command token would jubilantly pass through the arched gate and walk into the Dragon and Phoenix Academy.
“There are really many people…” Duan Ling Tian looked at the three extremely long lines before him and couldn’t help but shake his head, then his body slightly inclined forward as he intended to line up.
Right at this moment.
“Roar!” A loud roar sounded out by Duan Ling Tian’s ear, and it was like a thunderclap.
Not only did it alarm Duan Ling Tian, even the young geniuses that were lining up couldn’t help but turn around and look.
Duan Ling Tian turned around. With a glance, he saw an enormous leopard walking over here, and everywhere it passed, everybody would move away.
This leopard’s entire body was covered in snow white fur, like a white flame that was burning, and every time it opened its blood mouth to emit a low roar, it would make others to feel coldness that came from the bottom of their hearts.
“Snow Leopard?” Duan Ling Tian was slightly surprised as he never expected there were people that used fierce beasts to move around in the Imperial City…
The Snow Leopard was a seventh level Nascent Soul Stage fierce beast.
In Duan Ling Tian’s heart, two words emerged at the first possible moment.
“It’s the Yin Clan’s Yin Zhe!”
“Yin Zhe, the second young master of the Yin Clan. In terms of natural talent, he’s only inferior to the five great young masters of our Azure Forest Imperial Kingdom… I’ve heard of him since long ago.”
“Since he’s able to tame a Snow Leopard, the strength of this Yin Clan’s second young master is surely at the seventh level of the Nascent Soul Stage or above.”
“This Yin Clan’s second young master, Yin Zhe, is 29 this year. Supposedly, his cultivation has already stepped into the ninth level of the Nascent Soul Stage.”
Many people whispered in discussion, and it also allowed Duan Ling Tian to find out about the identity of the person that had arrived.
Duan Ling Tian’s brows raised, as he’d never heard of this clan.
However, it may be assumed that it was probably a clan in the Azure Forest Imperial Kingdom’s Imperial City, and it wasn’t an ordinary clan.
Duan Ling Tian was able to discern this from the fearful gazes of many young geniuses.
“Haha… Yin Zhe, you’ve come really early.” Right at this moment, a hearty laughter sounded out.
Accompanied by this hearty laughter was a shocking beast roar.
An enormous wolf with black striped fur appeared, and its pair of blood red eyes stared fixedly at the Snow Leopard as if it might pounce on and battle the Snow Leopard at any moment.
“Black Striped Wolf!” Many people emitted surprised exclaims.
Black Striped Wolf, a seventh level Nascent Soul Stage fierce beast that was even more ferocious than a Snow Leopard.
“Another formidable fierce beast!” Many young geniuses looked at the person on the back of the Black Striped Wolf with envy.
Duan Ling Tian looked over as well.
This was a young man that wore black clothes and was around the age of 30. His appearance was ordinary, yet overbearing arrogance was emitted from between his brows.
“Half-step Void Stage?” Duan Ling Tian’s Spiritual Force stretched out and detected this person’s cultivation at the first possible moment.
“It’s the Sima Clan’s Sima Yang! Sima Yang is a genius martial artist of our Azure Forest Imperial Kingdom as well. In terms of natural talent, he’s similar to Yin Zhe and is only inferior to the five great young masters.” Someone recognized the black clothed young man and exclaimed in a low voice.
“Hmph! Sima Yang, it’s truly a coincidence, I can even encounter you when I’m just going to register.” Yin Zhe grunted coldly, and he was obviously not on good terms with Sima Yang.
As soon as he finished speaking, Yin Zhe disregarded Sima Yang and directed the Snow Leopard to continue towards the gate of the Dragon and Phoenix Academy.
Everywhere he passed, all the young geniuses moved aside.
In next to no time, the Snow Leopard beneath Yin Zhe had arrived before Duan Ling Tian.
Duan Ling Tian just happened to be standing in the empty space before the gate.
At this moment, Yin Zhe had two choices.
The first, go around Duan Ling Tian’s left.
The second, go around Duan Ling Tian’s right.
After all, this empty space was extremely spacious.
But Yin Zhe didn’t choose and instead glanced coldly at Duan Ling Tian before coldly shouting. “Where did this little fledgling kid come from? F**k off!”
Duan Ling Tian glanced at Yin Zhe indifferently then paid no attention to him, and it was as if Duan Ling Tian entirely didn’t hear Yin Zhe’s words.
Yin Zhe’s face sank.
“Roar!!” The Snow Leopard beneath Yin Zhe seemed to have noticed its Master’s rage and howled at Duan Ling Tian.
Duan Ling Tian frowned and finally spoke lazily. “The road is so wide, don’t you know how to go around?”
When Yin Zhe heard Duan Ling Tian, his face that was already gloomy couldn’t help but emit an expression of ridicule. “Fledgling kid, I, Yin Zhe, never go around… If you’re sensible then quickly f**k off! Otherwise, I’ll make my Snow Leopard directly press forward over you.”
His words were filled with a threatening intent.
Duan Ling Tian’s calm expression finally sank.
Make the Snow Leopard press forward over me?
This Yin Zhe really thinks he’s the judge that decided life and death?
“Then I really want to know how you will make your Snow Leopard press forward over me.” The gloominess on Duan Ling Tian’s face vanished in an instant, and replacing it was a brilliant smile.
“Hmm?” Duan Ling Tian’s words caused Yin Zhe to be unable to refrain from frowning.
As the second young master of the Yin Clan and a martial artist that possessed extraordinary natural talent in the Martial Dao, it was naturally impossible for him to be an idiot!
Presently, there were only two possibilities as to why the violet clothed young man before him still dared be like this after knowing of his identity.
The first, this was a hotheaded fellow that completely didn’t know what status the Yin Clan possessed in the Azure Forest Imperial Kingdom’s Imperial City.
The second, this was an existence with a shocking background and was unafraid of his Yin Clan.
For a time, he instead started to hesitate.
“Roar!” Right when Yin Zhe was hesitating, another beast roar sounded out.
A young man in embroidered clothes sat on an enormous tiger that was covered in sky blue fur and walked over. Everywhere the tiger passed, the people on the road would move aside.
“Ji Feng!” The brows of Sima Yang who sat on the Black Striped Wolf raised up, and he greeted the young man in embroidered clothes.
“It’s him!” Duan Ling Tian recognized the person that had arrived. It was precisely the young man in embroidered clothes that he’d met in the restaurant earlier.
At that time, he’d tossed the simple-minded subordinate of the young man out the window…
Duan Ling Tian originally thought that the young man would stand up for his subordinate.
But unexpectedly, the young man actually left directly.
At that time, Duan Ling Tian knew that this person was one who was extremely scheming, and before the young man fully understood Duan Ling Tian’s background, it would be absolutely impossible for the young man to make trouble for Duan Ling Tian.
This sort of person was extremely terrifying.
“It’s the Ji Clan’s Ji Feng!”
“In terms of natural talent, this Ji Feng is a figure on par with Yin Zhe and Sima Yang… His age is only 29, yet his cultivation has already stepped into the ninth level of the Nascent Soul Stage!”
Many young geniuses recognized Ji Feng.
“Yin Zhe, you should obediently go around… Haha!” Ji Feng imperceptibly nodded with a smile to Duan Ling Tian, then he looked at Yin Zhe who rode the Snow Leopard and stood before Duan Ling Tian, and he laughed loudly.
There was no lack of ridicule within his laughter.
Obviously, Ji Feng didn’t get along with Yin Zhe.
Sima Yang looked at Yin Zhe as well, and the corners of his mouth curled into a slight ridiculing smile. “Yin Zhe, go around obediently… Do you really think that the road before the Dragon and Phoenix Academy’s gate belongs to your Yin Clan?”
“Hmph!” Yin Zhe was originally suspicious of Duan Ling Tian’s background and identity, but now that he was ridiculed by his old rivals, his face instantly flushed red and he was enraged to the extreme, causing him to completely lose all reason.
“Kid, I’ll give you one last chance… F**k off! Otherwise, I’ll take your life!” Yin Zhe’s icy cold eyes stared at Duan Ling Tian as he shouted sternly.
At this moment, he’d vented all his rage onto Duan Ling Tian.
“Want my life?” Duan Ling Tian shook his head and said indifferently, “There’s a large empty space here and the spectating young geniuses can bear witness that I was standing here first… As the saying goes, first come, first serve. I’ve come first, and you came later. Logically speaking, it ought to be you that goes around.”
“Now, you actually want my life for this trivial matter?” As Duan Ling Tian finished speaking, although his tone was still calm, his eyes already flickered with frightful cold lights that were difficult to notice.
Duan Ling Tian was enraged.
“Has this young man gone mad? Does he know who he’s talking to?”
“He’s also a young genius that has been recommended to the Dragon and Phoenix Academy? I wonder which power recommended this person, does that power have no other people? A little youth like this is able to be recommended to the Dragon and Phoenix Academy as well?”
“He’s going to suffer.”
“Of course! Yin Zhe’s temper is famous for being bad… Since this young man doesn’t know how to appreciate the kindness Yin Zhe has shown him today, he will surely completely enrage Yin Zhe!”
The surrounding crowd of young geniuses whispered in discussion.
“Yin Zhe, I think this Brother speaks logically… First come, first serve should be stressed on for everything.” Right at this moment, the enormous tiger Ji Feng rode slowly walked over, and when it arrived near Duan Ling Tian, it went around him. After that, Ji Feng looked at Yin Zhe, and the ridicule on his face remained the same.
“Hmph! Ji Feng, you’re really getting more stupid the longer you live…” Yin Zhe glanced coldly at Ji Feng, then his gaze descended onto Duan Ling Tian before saying with a sneer. “You actually went around for a little kid like this? Today, I’ll let you see how I, Yin Zhe, will make this person that can make you go around him to obediently lie down!”
As he finished speaking, Yin Zhe’s tone was filled with ruthlessness.
“Press forward!” Yin Zhe shouted out with a low voice and ordered the Snow Leopard.
