Chapter 523: Duan Ling Tian Is Captured
Translator: KurazyTolanzuraytor Editor: Jay
When Duan Ling Tian returned to his senses once more, he noticed that the remaining bandits had all fallen down.
Only one bandit remained with his last breath, and he obviously wouldn’t live for long.
“Lo… Lord, save me!” The bandit struggled to plead for help from Duan Ling Tian.
Duan Ling Tian glanced at him indifferently and asked. “Do you know where the other Leaders of your bandit group are?”
“I… I don’t know.” The bandit shook his head with difficulty. Even if he consumed a healing medicinal pill, he was still out of breath.
He’d suffered too heavy injuries, and the low grade healing medicinal pills in his possession weren’t able to provide any effect.
“Little Gold.” Duan Ling Tian paid no attention to this bandit and woke up the little gold mouse.
“Squeak squeak~” After the little gold mouse woke up, she cried out in surprise when she saw the tragic condition within the gorge.
“Big Brother Ling Tian, when did you become so bloody?” The little gold mouse’s naïve voice of a young girl entered into Duan Ling Tian’s ears.
“I’m bloody?” The corners of Duan Ling Tian’s mouth twitched.
Even if there was someone in the world that had the qualifications to call him bloody, it would absolutely not be the little gold mouse.
In terms of both being ruthless and bloody, he felt he couldn’t compare to this little fellow no matter how hard he tried.
“Little Gold, help me gather the spoils.” Under Duan Ling Tian and the little gold mouse’s cleaning up, the Spatial Rings of the group of bandits had become Duan Ling Tian’s.
Whereas during this period of time, that bandit that had survived the battle had died because of his heavy injuries.
This time, Duan Ling Tian could be considered to have obtained an excellent harvest.
“With all these bandits combined… My mission points ought to have passed one hundred, right?” Before Duan Ling Tian left, he glanced indifferently at the pile of bandit corpses within the gorge and thought to himself.
Subsequently, Duan Ling Tian brought the little gold mouse along and left the gorge.
Duan Ling Tian’s face became gloomy right after he left the gorge.
Because he noticed that two extremely familiar auras were approaching with extremely swift speeds…
“S**t!” Duan Ling Tian’s face was gloomy, then his figure flashed out, intending to flee.
Duan Ling Tian’s Half-step Advanced Wind Force and Half-step Advanced Lightning Force gathered beneath his feet, and he seemed to have transformed into the wind as he flashed towards the distance.
“Duan Ling Tian, you still want to flee before the two of us?” Right at this moment, two aged figures seemed as if they’d appeared out of thin air before Duan Ling Tian.
Or course, they didn’t appear out of thin air.
Whereas it was their speeds that had attained a certain level that caused Duan Ling Tian to be unable to catch sight of their figures.
“Zhao Ming, Tang Huo!” Duan Ling Tian’s expression was unsightly when he saw the two old men that floated before him.
He never expected that Zhao Ming and Tang Huo would appear in Blackwind Ridge…
“It’s surely Liu Yue who informed them that the students of Dragon and Phoenix Academy were coming out to gain experience and tempering.” In next to no time, Duan Ling Tian guessed the reason.
“Duan Ling Tian, we were unable to do anything to you in the Crimson Sky Kingdom that day… Let me see who can help you today.” The corners of Tang Huo’s mouth curled into a cold smile.
Zhao Ming’s icy cold gaze stared at Duan Ling Tian, yet didn’t say a single word.
Right at this moment, another aged figure appeared to stand before Duan Ling Tian, and the figure protected Duan Ling Tian behind himself.
It was precisely the Dragon and Phoenix Academy’s Vice Dean Chi Ming.
Chi Ming couldn’t help but be slightly moved when he saw Tang Huo and Zhao Ming.
He wasn’t surprised that the members of the Azure Forest Tri-Sect wanted to look for trouble with Duan Ling Tian.
But what surprised him was the for the sake of Duan Ling Tian, the Azure Forest Tri-Sect actually send out two Guardian Elders…
It was truly unbelievable!
“Even if the Azure Forest Tri-Sect regarded Duan Ling Tian as even more important, it still wouldn’t be to the extent of sending out two Guardian Elders, right?” Chi Ming felt that there was surely a secret hidden behind this.
“Elder Tang Huo, Elder Zhao Ming.” Chi Ming looked at Tang Huo and Zhao Ming with a calm expression and said with a low voice, “Duan Ling Tian is an Inner Hall student of our Dragon and Phoenix Academy now, and he’s undergoing an experience mission right now… I hope that the both of you can leave quickly.”
“Chi Ming, could it be that you think you alone are able to stop both the two of us?” Tang Huo obviously knew Chi Ming, and he sneered.
Chi Ming’s face went gloomy. “Tang Huo, don’t forget… Duan Ling Tian is a member of the Dragon and Phoenix Academy now, and he’d protected by the Azure Forest Imperial Kingdom’s Imperial Family! If you dare touch him, then it’s going against the Imperial Family.”
As far as Chi Ming was concerned, the Imperial Family was sufficient to press down on Tang Huo and Zhao Ming to the point they couldn’t catch their breaths.
However, the development of the matter exceeded his expectations.
“Imperial Family?” Tang Huo and Zhao Ming looked at each other when they heard Chi Ming, then couldn’t refrain from laughing.
“What? After your Azure Forest Tri-Sect combined, you even look down on our Imperial Family?” Chi Ming spoke with a low voice.
“Chi Ming, if you’re sensible then leave quickly… We’re taking this Duan Ling Tian for sure today!” Tang Huo’s words didn’t have the slightest room for discussion.
Perhaps they would have to restrain themselves within the Azure Forest Imperial Kingdom’s Imperial City.
But now, everything was too far away, whereas Duan Ling Tian was before their eyes and about to become their prey. How could they let this opportunity slip by?
After all, once they captured Duan Ling Tian, it would also mean that they would obtain the 10,000 Year Stalactite Milk.
Once they consumed the 10,000 Year Stalactite Milk, they would be confident in charging into the seventh level of the Void Initiation Stage!
At that time, so what if it was the Imperial Family?
The only reason he Imperial Family was able to monopolize the kingdom was because of the seventh level Void Prying Stage expert.
So long as they captured Duan Ling Tian and forged out the location of the 10,000 Year Stalactite Milk from him, seventh level Void Initiation Stage experts would appear in their Azure Forest Tri-Sect!
Moreover, it wouldn’t only just be one person!
At that time, their Azure Forest Tri-Sect would be unafraid of the Azure Forest Imperial Kingdom’s Imperial Family anymore.
Duan Ling Tian stood dare and silently watched the development of the situation.
He noticed that the development seemed to not be going smoothly.
Tang Huo and Zhao Ming seemed to want to capture him even at the hazard of offending the Imperial Family.
As for the reason the two of them did this, Duan Ling Tian was able to guess it.
“Do they really think that I’d take them to the 10,000 Year Stalactite Milk if they capture me?” Duan Ling Tian sneered in his heart towards how naïve Tang Huo and Zhao Ming were.
“Hmph!” Finally, Chi Ming grunted coldly, and the Origin Energy on his body fluxed, causing his robe to flutter without wind.
In the sky, eight lifelike ancient horned dragons gradually condensed into form.
Chi Ming revealed his cultivation.
Sixth level of the Void Initiation Stage!
He wasn’t inferior to Zhao Ming or Tang Huo.
Duan Ling Tian wasn’t surprised when Chi Ming revealed such a cultivation.
His Spiritual Force had detected Chi Ming’s cultivation since long ago.
“Chi Ming, if you really want to look for trouble, then don’t blame me and Elder Ming for being hard on you… I presume that you ought to be clear that you aren’t a match for the both of us together.” As Tang Huo spoke, eight ancient horned dragon silhouettes appeared above him.
Whereas above Zhao Ming, eight ancient horned dragon silhouettes gradually condensed into form as well, and they wriggled as they descended.
In next to no time, strands of material blue energy leaped about on the Origin Energy on Chi Ming’s body.
Subsequently, another five ancient horned dragons appeared in the sky above Chi Ming…
“Fifth level Water Concept?” The corners of Tang Huo’s mouth curled into a wisp of disdain, then as the Origin Energy on his body moved, strands of crimson red energy leaped about, and the scorching aura caused the air to stagnate.
Sixth level Fire Concept!
At the same time, Fifth level Wind Concept appeared within Zhao Ming’s Origin Energy, and the eight ancient horned dragon silhouettes above him became 13.
“Both of you really want to touch someone that’s protected by our Imperial Family?” Chi Ming’s face was gloomy, and he felt a wave of powerlessness in his heart.
He never expected that Tang Huo had actually comprehended sixth level Fire Concept!
Sixth level Fire Concept was already not countered by his fifth level Water Concept.
Originally, he planned to use his Water Concept to counter Tang Huo’s Fire Concept, then pull Zhao Ming into the battle and fight for a chance for Duan Ling Tian to flee.
But now it would seem that his thoughts had failed.
Merely Tang Huo alone had surpassed him, and he was utterly unable to divert his attention to deal with Zhao Ming.
Whereas at this moment, Duan Ling Tian’s thoughts were spinning.
“Even if I lend my grade four spirit sword to Vice Dean Chi Ming, he probably might not be able to suppress Tang Huo and Zhao Ming… Looks like I’m bound to suffer misfortune today.” Unknowingly, the corners of Duan Ling Tian’s mouth curled into a wisp of helplessness.
He didn’t flee because he knew that it was impossible for him to flee under the eyes of Tang Huo and Zhao Ming.
“Elder Ming!” Suddenly, Duan Ling Tian heard an explosive shout.
Subsequently, Duan Ling Tian saw that the azure clothed on Zhao Ming’s body swayed as he transformed into a gust of wind with extremely swift speed and flashed directly towards Chi Ming, and he became locked in battle with Chi Ming…
In terms of attack, the two of them were equal.
In terms of speed, because Zhao Ming had comprehended Wind Concept, he was superior.
Right at this moment, Duan Ling Tian heard a wave of the sound of the air tearing apart sweep towards him, and the sound approached closer and closer, and a scorching aura enveloped down onto him.
“S**t!” Duan Ling Tian’s face went ghastly pale when he saw Tang Huo pouncing at him.
A powerful hand descended onto his shoulder, and the formidable Origin Energy shackled all the Origin Energy within his body.
Subsequently, Duan Ling Tian was brought up into the clouds and swiftly flew into the distance,
Within Duan Ling Tian’s field of vision, Chi Ming and Zhao Ming went further and further, and in the end, they transformed into two black dots that gradually vanished before his eyes…
During this period of time, Chi Ming wanted to save him on many occasions, yet was stopped by Zhao Ming.
“Duan Ling Tian, you’ve fallen into my hands in the end.” Tang Huo’s voice entered into Duan Ling Tian’s ears.
“Elder Tang Huo, you better be a bit lighter… If you hurt me, then I might accidentally forget the location of the 10,000 Year Stalactite Milk, and that wouldn’t be good.” Duan Ling Tian glanced at the hand that Tang Huo grabbed onto his shoulder with and spoke indifferently.
“Hmph!” Tang Huo’s face sank from being threatened by Duan Ling Tian.
But his hand still loosened slightly.
When he saw Tang Huo being so cooperative, Duan Ling Tian knew that his guess from before was correct.
Tang Huo and Zhao Ming utterly didn’t think of directly taking his life.
The objective of the two was indeed the 10,000 Year Stalactite Milk.
“Elder Tang Huo, where do you plan to take me?” Duan Ling Tian noticed that Tang Huo actually brought him all the way east, and he couldn’t help but be curious.
Tang Huo paid no attention to Duan Ling Tian.
Tang Huo only stopped moving when he arrived atop a precipitous mountain that was at the eastern border of the Azure Forest Imperial Kingdom, then he held on Duan Ling Tian’s shoulder as he stood in the sky.
Duan Ling Tian sized up this precipitous mountain and didn’t notice anything special about it.
