Chapter 526: Taking Revenge
Translator: KurazyTolanzuraytor Editor: Jay
Chi Ming believed that under the boost of the Void Refining Fruit, Duan Ling Tian would be able to go higher and further.
Duan Ling Tian naturally didn’t know of Chi Ming’s thoughts.
Presently, he was searching for the tracks of the bandits on Blackwind Ridge as if he’d gone mad.
Not only was Duan Ling Tian searching, the little gold mouse was helping him search as well.
The little gold mouse was unable to help Duan Ling Tian kill the bandits, but helping Duan Ling Tian find the bandits before Duan Ling Tian attacked them himself was possible.
This was something that even Chi Ming didn’t say anything about.
After all, this didn’t count as breaking the rules.
The mission this time was only for a duration of half a month.
Where four days had already passed, and only 11 remained.
After searching for three days, Duan Ling Tian didn’t discover the tracks of a single bandit.
No matter if he searched on the ground or searched by looking down from high above in the sky.
“Unfortunately, the area my Spiritual Force can extend out is limited… If my Spiritual Force was able to cover the entire Blackwind Ridge, then those bandits would surely have no way to hide!”
Of course, Duan Ling Tian was only thinking.
The Blackwind Ridge was so large that even Rebirth Martial Emperor at his prime all those years ago, would perhaps be able to cover it completely when he used his Spiritual Force to search it…
But the Rebirth Martial Emperor was an existence at the Martial Emperor Stage during his prime!
Presently, not to mention the highest known cultivation stage in Cloud Continent, the Martial Emperor Stage, Duan Ling Tian was even quite a distance away from the Void Initiation Stage.
“Hmm?” Suddenly, the movement ahead attracted Duan Ling Tian’s attention.
Duan Ling Tian approached and looked from afar, and he noticed a few familiar figures…
These few people weren’t bandits, yet Duan Ling Tian’s sank slightly.
“Liu Yue!” The people that had appeared in Duan Ling Tian’s field of vision was precisely the people from the Azure Forest Tri-Sect.
When he recalled Tang Huo and Zhao Ming, and recalled the Seven Star Sword Sect disciples that had died at the hands of these people on that day…
Duan Ling Tian’s chest was almost filled by flames of rage!
“Vice Deal Chi!” Duan Ling Tian didn’t move to meet Liu Yue’s group nor did he let the Void Prying Stage martial artist behind Liu Yue’s group, and he concealed himself at a side first.
“What?” Chi Ming was slightly puzzled when he heard Duan Ling Tian’s voice transmission.
“Those Azure Forest Tri-Sect disciples… Can you do me a favor?” Duan Ling Tian’s voice transmission was filled with boundless killing intent.
“Hmm?” Chi Ming was first stunned when he heard this, then he noticed Liu Yue’s group as well.
He naturally knew the meaning of Duan Ling Tian’s words.
Duan Ling Tian wanted him to take a bribe and allow Duan Ling Tian to kill these few Azure Forest Tri-Sect disciples…
If it was in the past, Chi Ming would directly refuse.
But now, when he recalled those two Guardian Elders of the Azure Forest Tri-Sect that didn’t respect the Azure Forest Imperial Kingdom’s Imperial Family, a trace of evil flames couldn’t help but emerge within the heart of Chi Ming who was one of the five great Revered Elders of the Imperial Family.
Chi Ming was a person as well, and he had emotions.
Because of the actions of Tang Huo and Zhao Ming a few days ago, he didn’t have the slightest favorable impression of the Azure Forest Tri-Sect.
Moreover, Duan Ling Tian had said it clearly now, it was to give him a favor!
Perhaps, the favor Duan Ling Tian owed was nothing at this moment.
But what about in the future?
He looked extremely favorably upon Duan Ling Tian’s future.
In the end, Chi Ming gritted his teeth and agreed. “Then make it clean… I’ll instruct the people that are following behind them to not interfere in the matter between you and them.”
At this moment, Chi Ming had a slight guilty feeling.
But when he recalled Tang Huo and Zhao Ming’s arrogance before him, the guilty feeling vanished completely.
It wasn’t worth for the Azure Forest Imperial Kingdom’s Imperial Family to protect the members of the Azure Forest Tri-Sect.
“Thank you Vice Dean Chi, Duan Ling Tian is indebted to your favor.” Duan Ling Tian heaved a sigh of relief when Chi Ming agreed.
He was really worried that Chi Ming wouldn’t agree.
If that was the case, then even if he hated Liu Yue’s group to the extreme, he would have no way of doing anything.
Of course, he was able to guess that a portion of the reason Chi Ming agreed so readily was surely because of Tang Huo and Zhao Ming capturing Duan Ling Tian a few days ago…
At that time, Tang Huo and Zhao Ming had caused this Vice Dean to lose all face!
“Senior Sister Liu Yue, it has already been four days and we haven’t even encountered a single bandit… Where exactly are they hiding?” An Azure Forest Tri-Sect disciple smiled bitterly as he looked at Liu Yue.
“You’re asking me? How would I know?” Liu Yue said angrily.
“Senior Sister Liu Yue, don’t get angry… So what if we have no gains from coming to Blackwind Ridge this time? Presently, the two Guardian Elders would have probably already killed that Duan Ling Tian, and that’s a great merit!” Another Azure Forest Tri-Sect disciple grinned.
“Right… Once Duan Ling Tian is dead, the three Sect Leaders will surely be happy. At that time, all of us are people who have rendered meritorious service and will obtain the rewards of the Sect! After all, it’s we who told the two Guardian Elders of Duan Ling Tian’s whereabouts.” The eyes of the last Azure Forest Tri-Sect disciple glowed, and it was as if he’d already seen the rewards bestowed by the sect.
Liu Yue’s expression eased up slightly when she heard this.
Indeed, nothing could be more delightful than this.
When she thought of how Duan Ling Tian was already dead, she couldn’t help but heave a sigh of relief.
A few days ago in the Dragon and Phoenix Academy, the icy cold gaze Duan Ling Tian look at her with caused her to have nightmares successively for a few days…
In those nightmares, she was killed by Duan Ling Tian several times.
“I can finally have a good night’s sleep tonight.” Liu Yue was rather happy in her heart, and the depression from being unable to find a bandit was completely tossed to the back of her head.
“It really was all of you that leaked the news!” It was at this moment that a voice that was like a ghost caused the expression of Liu Yue’s group to go grim.
Especially Liu Yue, this voice was one she’d heard countless time during her dreams in these past few days…
Of course, they were all nightmares.
Duan Ling Tian had approached Liu Yue’s group since long ago, and he’d clearly heard what Liu Yue and the others had said.
He was originally suspicious that it was Liu Yue’s group that had leaked the matter of the experience missions in Blackwind Ridge.
Presently, Liu Yue’s group had admitted it themselves.
“So Tang Huo and Zhao Ming were brought over by them… Duan Ling Tian, you can deal with this matter however you want!” Right at this moment, a voice transmission entered into Duan Ling Tian’s ears, and it contained traces of rage mixed within.
It was precisely Chi Ming!
Obviously, Chi Ming had heard the conversation of the Azure Forest Tri-Sect disciples.
As soon as Duan Ling Tian’s finished speaking, his figure moved to appear before Liu Yue’s group.
“Squeak squeak~” The jade green eyes of the little gold mouse on Duan Ling Tian’s shoulder flickered with cold lights as she stared at Liu Yue’s group.
“Duan… Duan Ling Tian!” Besides Liu Yue who was mentally prepared, the other three Azure Forest Tri-Sect disciples went pale when they saw Duan Ling Tian.
What we said earlier was heard by Duan Ling Tian?
Also, Duan Ling Tian actually didn’t die?
Could it be that the two Guardian Elders haven’t made a move?
“Liu Yue, and you three… You killed the disciples of my Seven Star Sword Sect that day, and owe my Seven Star Sword Sect numerous debts of blood. Today, the time for payback has come.” Duan Ling Tian stared coldly at Liu Yue’s group, and he spoke indifferently.
His words didn’t contain any emotions.
However, anyone would be able to feel the killing intent that swept out from Duan Ling Tian.
Along with the terrifying killing intent on Duan Ling Tian’s body sweeping out, it enveloped onto Liu Yue’s group and caused all their faces to go pale.
Duan Ling Tian’s killing intent was obtained from his career of bloodshed in his previous life.
How would it be something that Liu Yue’s group was able to endure?
“Duan… Duan Ling Tian. Don’t you forget that we’re undergoing the experience mission of the Dragon and Phoenix Academy, and there’s someone following behind us to record our score. The academy won’t let you off if you dare kill us.” Liu Yue took a deep breath, and she could feel her heartbeat ceaselessly increasing in speed.
“Really?” Duan Ling Tian started laughing. “Are you sure the academy won’t let me off?”
Duan Ling Tian’s words caused Liu Yue’s group to become absent-minded.
It was at this instant that Duan Ling Tian attacked.
Duan Ling Tian pointed out with his finger, and a material point force condensed from Origin Energy howled as it flew out.
A piercing howl sounded out and an Azure Forest Tri-Sect disciple beside Liu Yue directly fell to the ground.
On his head, a savage bloody hole had appeared, and blood flowed endlessly from it.
“Ah!” One of their fellow disciples from the same sect was killed, and it terrified Liu Yue’s group to the point their faces instantly went ghastly pale.
“Duan Ling Tian, you… You really dared kill him!” Liu Yue’s voice was slightly trembling.
As far as she was concerned, Duan Ling Tian was simply a madman!
But in next to no time, when she noticed that there was no movement behind her, terror appeared on the faces of Liu Yue and the others.
“Where’s the person from the academy? Isn’t there someone following us to record our scores?” The three of them took the person from the academy that recorded their scores as their life saving straw.
However, that person of the Dragon and Phoenix Academy didn’t appear.
When Duan Ling Tian saw Liu Yue’s group looking left and right, he said in ridicule, “You don’t have to look… All of you are bound to die for nothing here. After the experience mission ends, the Dragon and Phoenix Academy will announce that the disciples of the Azure Forest Tri-Sect didn’t heed advice and wandered arbitrarily in the Blackwind Ridge before disappearing.”
The expressions of Liu Yue’s group went deathly pale.
Duan Ling Tian pointed out once more, and the point force condensed from Origin Energy howled as it killed another Azure Forest Tri-Sect disciple.
It pierced through between the brows again, a similar death with the previous Azure Forest Tri-Sect disciple.
After killing two Azure Forest Tri-Sect disciples successively, Duan Ling Tian’s expression remained expressionless from the beginning until the end.
These two Azure Forest Tri-Sect disciples had killed countless Seven Star Sword Sect disciples on that day.
Today, he was only making them repay their debts of blood with blood.
“Flee!” Besides Liu Yue, the last remaining Azure Forest Tri-Sect disciple had a ghastly pale expression when he saw two of his senior brothers falling to the ground, and he turned around and fled.
But could he flee?
After all, even Liu Yue couldn’t arouse the thought to flee now.
Because Liu Yue knew that it was impossible for them to flee under Duan Ling Tian’s eyes.
“Flee?” When Duan Ling Tian saw the Azure Forest Tri-Sect disciple turn around intending to flee to the distance, the corners of his mouth couldn’t help but curl into a sneer.
With a raise of his hand, two point forces condensed from Origin Energy whistled out and hit directly on the legs of the Azure Forest Tri-Sect disciple.
The body of the Azure Forest Tri-Sect disciple who had two bloody holes pierced on his legs shook before his body crashed to the ground.
He fell near Liu Yue.
“Senior Sister, save… Save me!” The Azure Forest Tri-Sect disciple struggled to stretch out his hand and grab onto Liu Yue’s legs, then said in panic, “Senior Sister, I don’t want to die… I don’t want to die!”
Liu Yue had a bitter expression on her face.
Presently, she was hardly able to protect herself, let alone save another.
