Chapter 571: Who Can Afford To Play
Translator: KurazyTolanzuraytor Editor: Jay
Duan Ling Tian paid no attention to the people that followed behind him, and he directly headed out of the city.
In next to no time, he’d left the city, and he only just soared into the sky.
Whoosh! Whoosh! Whoosh!
Three exceedingly swift howls of the wind sounded out from behind Duan Ling Tian.
The three figures stood in the sky and were divided into a triangular position as they surrounded Duan Ling Tian.
“Hmm?” Duan Ling Tian wasn’t surprised by the appearance of the three people, and his gaze flashed past the three of them.
These were three middle aged men that stared at him with icy cold gazes.
Duan Ling Tian’s Spiritual Force stretched out, and the cultivations of the three people were unable to hide from him.
Two fourth level Void Prying Stage martial artists, and one third level Void Prying Stage martial artist.
They didn’t pose that slightest threat to Duan Ling Tian.
“Your Eldest Young Master sent all of you?” Duan Ling Tian spoke indifferently, and at practically this instant, Duan Ling Tian’s gaze that never left these three people observed the minute changes in their expressions.
In the end, Duan Ling Tian noticed an inkling.
At almost the exact same instant he spoke, the expressions of the three people had slight changes.
“Looks like I was right.” Duan Ling Tian’s gaze gradually went cold. “But, your Zhu Clan’s Patriarch didn’t say anything, yet all of you have impatiently made a move against me with only the order from your Zhu Clan’s Eldest Young Master… Aren’t all of you afraid that your Zhu Clan’s Patriarch would blame you?”
“After we kill you, the dead can’t bear witness.” One of the fourth level Void Prying Stage martial artists spoke word by word with a voice that was cold like ice.
“Kill!” The other fourth level Void Prying Stage martial artist shouted out with a grim voice, and he pounced towards Duan Ling Tian.
Instantly, the other two of them attacked out at the same time.
Three people divided into three directions had launched an attack at Duan Ling Tian at the same time.
Three strands of raging Origin Energy combined with three spirit weapons and Elementary Force approached menacingly, sweeping towards Duan Ling Tian, and it seemed as if they wanted to kill Duan Ling Tian with a single strike.
“Hmph!” Duan Ling Tian’s gaze abruptly went cold.
In the next moment, Duan Ling Tian made a move.
Sword Drawing Arts!
The Violet Myrtle Flexible Sword had only just arrived in Duan Ling Tian’s hand when it transformed into a sword light that was swift to the extreme as it flashed out.
Two strands of fresh blood shot out violently.
The Origin Energy on the bodies of the two fourth level Void Prying Stage martial artists dispersed completely as they crashed to the ground.
Because they fell from a low position in the sky, Duan Ling Tian and the remaining third level Void Prying Stage martial artist were able to hear the sound of the two corpses dropping to the ground.
The expression of the third level Void Prying Stage martial artist went completely ghastly pale to the extreme at the instant his two fourth level Void Prying Stage companions were killed, and his expression was filled with despair.
Presently, he put away the spirit weapon in his hand and stood in the sky with a shivering figure.
“You… You…” He looked at Duan Ling Tian as he shuddered in terror.
Earlier, although he didn’t see how many ancient mammoth silhouettes were above Duan Ling Tian clearly…
But he’d clearly seen that enormous silhouette that circled down.
“Ancient… Ancient horned dragon silhouette…” At this moment, his heart was filled with coldness.
The young man was able to draw upon the energy of heaven and earth to condense an ancient horned dragon silhouette, and the young man’s strength could be easily imagined.
The young man was at least at the sixth level of the Void Prying Stage, and it was even possible that he was at the seventh level of the Void Prying Stage.
A sixth level Void Prying Stage martial artist was able to draw upon the energy of heaven and earth to develop an ancient horned dragon silhouette when utilizing a spirit weapon, where, a seventh level Void Prying Stage martial artist didn’t have to utilize a spirit weapon to exert the strength of an ancient horned dragon.
Sixth level Void Prying Stage?
Seventh level Void Prying Stage?
Even the strongest in their Zhu Clan, the Grand Elder, had a cultivation that was only at the seventh level of the Void Prying Stage.
“Do you still want to continue?” Duan Ling Tian glanced indifferently at the middle aged man before him.
“No… No…” The middle aged man hurriedly waved his hand when he heard this.
What a joke!
Although the young man looked to be young, the young man’s strength was something that was difficult for him to reach.
If the young man willed it, he would have died long ago.
“Speak of the person who’s pulling the strings, and then scram!” Duan Ling Tian’s sword shaped brows tilted up.
Although he’d already guessed that the Zhu Clan’s Eldest Young Master was the person pulling the strings, he still wanted to confirm it.
“It’s the Eldest Young Master, it’s the Eldest Young Master!” The middle aged man spoke hurriedly.
After he finished speaking, he heaved a sigh of relief when he saw Duan Ling Tian’s figure flash to vanish before his eyes.
“I can’t stay in the Zhu Clan any longer…” The middle aged man sighed as he decided in his heart.
In the next moment, the middle aged man transformed into a flowing light that shot out of the city before concealing itself high in the clouds and vanishing.
Zhu Clan Estate.
As if a gust of wind blew by, a violet clothed figure had appeared out of thin air.
“Zhu Clan’s Eldest Young Master!” The owner of the violet colored figure was precisely Duan Ling Tian who had returned.
Presently, Duan Ling Tian looked down at the Zhu Clan Estate beneath his face and spoke with a clear and cold voice.
His voice contained Origin Energy and spread out throughout the entire Zhu Clan Estate.
Instantly, the entire Zhu Clan was stirred.
“Someone is looking for the Eldest Young Master?”
“He has come with bad intentions!”
Many Zhu Clan members looked up into the sky.
“It’s him! Why has he come back again?” The Zhu Clan’s Patriarch was silently drinking tea in the courtyard when he heard this familiar voice, and his face sank as he stepped up into the sky.
“He hasn’t died?” In the Zhu Clan’s Martial Practice Arena, the Zhu Clan’s Eldest Young Master’s face sank as he soared into the sky.
Subsequently, another three figures soared into the sky.
“Who’s making noise in my Zhu Clan?” An aged figure was the first to arrive high above in the sky where Duan Ling Tian was, and his figure hadn’t arrived yet, but his voice had already sounded out.
Duan Ling Tian looked over when he heard the voice.
An old man with white brows was the first to appear before him.
“Seventh level of the Void Prying Stage?” His Spiritual Force detected the old man’s cultivation at the first possible moment.
“Looks like this person ought to be the strongest in the Zhu Clan, the Grand Elder.” Duan Ling Tian thought to himself.
A few days ago, on the way when he was lead towards Abundance City by Zhu Qing, Zhu Qing had proudly commended her Zhu Clan many times.
Amongst these, she’d mentioned that the strongest person in the Zhu Clan, the Grand Elder, was an existence at the seventh level of the Void Prying Stage.
The Zhu Clan’s Grand Elder was slightly dazed when he looked at Duan Ling Tian.
He obviously never imagined that the person who came to provoke the Zhu Clan would be such a young man.
“Young man, do you know that your actions are already provoking the dignity of my Zhu Clan!” The Zhu Clan’s Grand Elder’s voice was like muffled thunder, and slight rage was contained within.
“Zhu Clan’s dignity?” Duan Ling Tian started laughing. “Your Zhu Clan has dignity to speak about? Truly laughable!”
“Audacious!” The Zhu Clan’s Grand Elder’s voice and another voice sounded out at almost the exact same time.
Subsequently, the Zhu Clan’s Patriarch was the second person to make an appearance, and he stood shoulder to shoulder with the Grand Elder as he glared angrily at Duan Ling Tian. “I said before that my Zhu Clan doesn’t owe you anything anymore… Now, what exactly do you desire by publicly provoking my Zhu Clan?”
“Hmm?” The Zhu Clan’s Grand Elder frowned. Obviously, he never expected that the Zhu Clan’s Patriarch knew this young man.
“What I desire?” Duan Ling Tian smiled as his eyes narrowed. “Patriarch Zhu, your Zhu Clan had indeed not owed me anything anymore… But that son of yours seems to not think in this way.”
The Zhu Clan’s Patriarch went grim when he heard this. “You… What do you mean by this?”
“Patriarch, Grand Elder!” Right at this moment, another two figures soared into the sky to stand by the side of the Grand Elder and Patriarch of the Zhu Clan.
Duan Ling Tian’s Spiritual Force swept out.
The people that arrived now were two old men, and their cultivations were similar to the Zhu Clan Patriarch.
They were both at the sixth level of the Void Prying Stage, and they were probably Zhu Clan Elders.
“What do I mean?” Duan Ling Tian’s gaze abruptly turned to converge onto the final figure that slowly soared into the sky. “I’m afraid Patriarch Zhu has to ask your precious son about this! Ask him what ‘good deed’ he has gone.”
As Duan Ling Tian finished speaking, he intentionally emphasized the words ‘good deed.’
The Zhu Clan’s Eldest Young Master was the last to make an appearance.
He looked at Duan Ling Tian as soon as he made an appearance, and he glared angrily. “Kid, you took my Zhu Clan’s 100 million gold, yet you still dare behave rudely at my Zhu Clan? Looks like you really think your life is too long!”
100 million gold?
The Zhu Clan Eldest Young Master’s words had caused all the three Zhu Clan elders including the Grand Elder so be stunned.
“Patriarch, what exactly is going on?” The three of them asked the Zhu Clan’s Patriarch.
The Zhu Clan’s Patriarch sighed and spoke of the sequence of events.
The three of them came to a sudden understanding.
“Young man, since my Zhu Clan doesn’t owe you anything anymore, why are you still endlessly making trouble for my Zhu Clan?” The Zhu Clan Grand Elder’s brows raised as he emitted a dignified bearing
“Endlessly making trouble?” Duan Ling Tian laughed in ridicule, and then he looked towards the Zhu Clan’s Eldest Young Master. “Who exactly is endlessly making trouble is something all of you ought to ask this Zhu Clan’s Eldest Young Master.”
Duan Ling Tian words successfully moved the attention of the four higher-ups of the Zhu Clan.
Including the Zhu Clan’s Patriarch, four sets of gazes had shot onto the Zhu Clan’s Eldest Young Master in unison.
“Kid, what do you mean by this?” The Zhu Clan’s Eldest Young Master’s face sank as he asked with a shout.
But in his heart, he felt slightly uncomfortable.
“Could it be that he has already found out about me sending people to kill him? Wait! Unless they failed, otherwise, it’s impossible for him to know.” The Zhu Clan’s Eldest Young Master was extremely confident towards the three people he’s sent, and he didn’t think that the violet clothed young man was able to kill those three people.
So, he chose to feign ignorance.
“What do I mean?” Duan Ling Tian’s face seemed to be covered in a layer of thin ice. “Zhu Clan Eldest Young Master, I’d taken the 100 million gold from Patriarch Zhu and the Zhu Clan and I were even!”
“But you actually sent out two fourth level Void Prying Stage martial artists and one third level Void Prying Stage martial artist with intent to kill me when I left… Do you really think I’m easily bullied?” As he finished speaking, Duan Ling Tian’s voice was icy cold to the extreme, and it seemed as if it sounded out from an icy pit.
As soon as Duan Ling Tian said this, the expression of the five members of the Zhu Clan went gloomy.
Especially the Zhu Clan’s Eldest Young Master, his pupils constricted as his mood surged.
“No… Impossible… How could he possible know…? Could it be… Could it be that they failed?” A bad premonition arose in the Zhu Clan’s Eldest Young Master’s heart.
“You… What did you do to the three Revered Elders of my Zhu Clan?” The Zhu Clan’s Eldest Young Master spoke in a low and deep voice as he asked with a shout.
“They followed your orders and wanted to kill me… Yet now, I’m standing all fine and well here. How do you think they are now?” Duan Ling Tian laughed in disdain as he spoke incisively.
“You… You killed them?” The Zhu Clan’s Eldest Young Master’s expression became gloomy.
“What? You can send them to kill me, yet I can’t kill them?” Duan Ling Tian sneered. “Originally, it didn’t matter that all of you were ungrateful after I saved your Zhu Clan’s Young Miss… But you actually wanted to kill me and wanted to stir up trouble… Then I’ll accompany you and play this game!”
“Let’s see if you can afford to play, or I can!!”
