Along with the departure of the two old men from the Bai Clan, Duan Ling Tian and Han Xue Nai had become the center of attention in the entire area.
But the attention of the surrounding people was quickly moved away because the members of the Tang Clan had arrived.
“It’s the Tang Clan’s Grand Elder!”
“The Tang Clan’s Grand Elder is an existence that has stepped into the eighth level of the Void Initiation Stage! In the Tang Clan, his strength is only inferior to the Tang Clan’s Ancestor.”
“I never expected that the Tang Clan’s Grand Elder would personally arrive to preside over the auction this afternoon.”
The surrounding crowd of spectators were in an uproar, whereas Duan Ling Tian’s gaze had descended onto the five people that flew over.
Amongst these five people, the one in the lead was a grey haired old man with a pair of muddled eyes that occasionally flashed with a dazzling bright light.
From afar, the old man looked like an ordinary old man, yet Duan Ling Tian’s stretched out Spiritual Force told him that this old man was an existence at the eighth level of the Void Initiation Stage.
“He’s the Tang Clan’s Grand Elder?” Duan Ling Tian heard the surrounding discussions, and he easily guessed the old man’s identity.
After all, Duan Ling Tian had arrived at the Eastern Mulberry Empire for a period of time, so he had a certain level of understanding towards the Eastern Mulberry Empire’s Tang Clan.
The Tang Clan was the strongest power in the Eastern Mulberry Empire besides the Imperial Family, and a clan being able to be the strongest in an Empire was undoubtedly extremely rare.
Supposedly, there were five existences at the seventh level of the Void Initiation Stage or above in the Tang Clan, and the strongest was existence at the ninth level of the Void Initiation Stage.
That day when Duan Ling Tian had just obtained an understanding of the Tang Clan’s strength, he’d once sighed with emotion. “The Tang Clan’s strength is probably not much inferior to the Imperial Family of Eastern Mulberry Empire.”
“Everyone!” Meanwhile, the five people of the Tang Clan that were led by the Grand Elder descended onto the high platform, and the Tang Clan’s Grand Elder looked around the surroundings before speaking suddenly.
Instantly, the scene quieted down and became deathly silent.
“Our Tang Clan will be auctioning a demon beast here today! A Void Initiation Stage demon beast.” The Tang Clan’s Grand Elder was obviously not a person that liked to dally, and he went straight to the point.
Void Initiation Stage demon beast?
Instantly, no matter was it the surrounding crowd of spectators on the ground or in the sky, they all burst into an uproar.
After all, once a demon beast broke through to the Void Initiation Stage, its intelligence was already no different than a human.
Most importantly, a Void Initiation Stage demon beast normally had its own dignity.
It would rather die than live on its knees!
Even if it was a human that possessed a strength that surpassed the Void Initiation Stage demon beast, it was practically impossible to subdue it.
It was precisely because of this that the value of a Void Initiation Stage demon beast was extremely high in the world of humans.
Now, the Tang Clan wanted to auction off a Void Initiation Stage demon beast?
A Void Initiation Stage demon beast that could be taken out to be auctioned by the Tang Clan was undoubtedly not the type of demon beast that would rather die than submit.
This type of demon beast was something that anyone wanted.
Especially those people who were in powers that possessed limited amounts of Void Initiation Stage experts, their faces flushed red and were bursting with energy as they were prepared to bid for the Void Initiation Stage demon beast.
“Void Initiation Stage demon beast?” Duan Ling Tian’s brows raise. “This Tang Clan has some ability… They’re actually able to capture a Void Initiation Stage demon beast to auction away.”
“Grand Elder Tang, may I know what level of the Void Initiation Stage is the demon beast your Tang Clan is auctioning away?” In next to no time, someone couldn’t refrain from asking.
“First level of the Void Initiation Stage.” The Tang Clan’s Grand Elder replied indifferently.
Although it was only at the first level of the Void Initiation Stage, it didn’t destroy the fervor in the hearts of the surrounding people as everyone looked with anticipation at the Tang Clan’s Grand Elder.
“Grand Elder Tang, where’s that demon beast?”
“Yeah, you have to let us take a look, right? Otherwise, how would we bid?”
The surrounding crowd of spectators were clamorous.
Presently, the people that spoke were mostly the martial artists with a cultivation at the Void Prying Stage or above and stood in the sky.
These people mostly had extraordinary backgrounds and abundant wealth.
“Everyone, please calm down. My Tang Clan disciples will bring over the demon beast right away.” The Tang Clan’s Grand Elder raised his hand to stop the clamorous noise from the surroundings.
Needless to say, this Tang Clan’s Grand Elder had a certain degree of influence, and as soon as he finished speaking, the scene instant became quiet once again.
“I thought it would be some treasure. So it turns out that it’s only a first level Void Initiation Stage demon beast.” Han Xue Nai’s brows knit and spoke with slight disappointment.
“Big Brother Ling Tian, let’s go… I’m completely uninterested towards Void Initiation Stage demon beasts,” said Han Xue Nai to Duan Ling Tian.
“Since we’ve already come, let’s see what demon beast this Tang Clan wants to auction off… I’m extremely curious as well, what sort of Void Initiation Stage demon beast did this Tang Clan subdue.” Duan Ling Tian suggested.
“Alright, then I’ll accompany Big Brother Duan Ling Tian in watching what happens.” Han Xue Nai lightly smiled as she nodded and agreed.
Not long after, a wave of howls of the wind sounded out from the distance.
Subsequently, a middle aged man that carried something that was covered in red cloth soared over in the sky and directly flashed towards the square in the center.
After a short moment, he descended onto the high platform.
“Grand Elder.” Subsequently, the middle aged man respectfully and reverently passed over the thing that was covered in red cloth to the Grand Elder.
The Grand Elder nodded before raising his hand and directly lifting up the red cloth.
A specially made cage appeared in the hands of the Tang Clan’s Grand Elder.
“Squeak squeak~” Right at this moment, a wave of low cries sounded out from within the cage.
A little gold mouse that was covered in fluffy fur lay powerlessly in the cage in a sorry state, and the jade green eyes of the little gold mouse was looking up into the sky of the center square.
The little gold mouse’s eyes were filled with excitement, whereas, at this moment, Duan Ling Tian had become completely stunned as he stared blankly at the little gold mouse in the cage, and he muttered slightly stiffly. “Little… Little Gold!”
“Everyone!” Meanwhile, the Tang Clan’s Grand Elder spoke slowly. “This little gold mouse is the Void Initiation Stage demon beast that my Tang Clan is auctioning off… According to my deduction, it ought to be a variant Goldfur Mouse.”
“Although it’s only a first level Void Initiation Stage demon beast, it has already comprehended second level Lightning Concept!” As the Tang Clan’s Grand Elder finished speaking, his voice became forceful.
“Comprehended second level Lightning Concept at the first level of the Void Initiation Stage?” Instantly, the gazes of the surrounding crowd of spectators lit up.
The comprehension ability of such a demon beast could be said to be shocking.
“Grand Elder Tang, its condition doesn’t seem well to me… Could it be that your Tang Clan has used some medicine on it?” Suddenly, a person with a discerning gaze asked.
“Exactly.” The Grand Elder nodded. “Our Tang Clan has indeed given it Origin Block Powder! But, this demon beast’s will to live is extremely strong, and it’s completely possible to control it using the Origin Block Powder and make it serve all of you.”
When he spoke up to here, the Tang Clan’s Grand Elder was slightly complacent. “The Origin Block Powder is the secret recipe of my Tang Clan… No matter who bid and wins this demon beast today, our Tang Clan will unconditionally supply a hundred years’ worth of Origin Block Powder to him.”
As soon as the Tang Clan’s Grand Elder finished speaking, the scene was completely silent, and only waves of heavy breathing remained.
“Hundred years?” Right at this moment, a sneer broke the silent atmosphere of the scene.
“Do you really think your Tang Clan can still be passed down for a hundred years?” The enraged and fierce voice continued to sound out, and it caused everyone from the Tang Clan including the Grand Elder to go grim.
The gazes of everyone shot towards the source of the voice.
At that place, a violet clothed young man stood there.
“It’s him!” In next to no time, someone had recognized Duan Ling Tian.
“What does he want to do?” Coldness arose in the hearts of many people.
Although this violet clothed young man had never made a move since the beginning, a terrifying expert was concealed behind the young girl by his side.
That expert hadn’t made an appeared yet, was able to kill a seventh level Void Initiation Stage expert.
That level of ability had already exceeded the scope of the Void Initiation Stage.
“Kid, you actually dare be disrespectful to my Tang Clan, you deserve death!” Right at this moment, the middle aged man that stood by the Grand Elder’s side shouted out explosively, and he transformed into a flowing light that flashed directly towards Duan Ling Tian.
For a time, two ancient mammoth silhouettes appeared in the sky above the middle aged man.
Obviously, this was a first level Void Initiation Stage martial artist.
The middle aged man slapped out with his palm, his raging Origin Energy condensed to transform into a palm print that was accompanied by strands of blue colored energy as it enveloped towards Duan Ling Tian.
In the sky, another ancient horned dragon silhouettes appeared…
First level Water Concept!
When faced with the middle aged man’s greatly formidable palm strike, Duan Ling Tian revealed an expression of disdain, and he didn’t even have the intention to dodge.
In the next moment, Duan Ling Tian raised his hand, and his raging Origin Energy converged on his index finger.
Duan Ling Tian fiercely pointed out, his first level Wind Concept and Advanced Lightning Force moved along with his Origin Energy point force to transform into the Tempest Point that pierced towards the middle aged man’s palm print.
In the sky, three ancient horned dragon silhouettes were escorted by 2,000 ancient mammoth silhouettes as they dashed out.
The terrifying Tempest Point easily shattered the middle aged man’s palm print and didn’t lose momentum in the slightest before piercing through the middle aged man’s chest.
“You…” The middle aged man’s pupils sprang wide open, and he raised his hand to point at Duan Ling Tian and wanted to say something, yet he was unable to continue speaking in the end.
The middle ages man’s shook before fiercely plunging to the ground while accompanied by spraying blood that covered the sky, and he was completely devoid of any signs of life.
Meanwhile, the pupils of the surrounding crowd of spectators constricted, and they looked at the violet clothed young man in the sky with astonished expressions.
“What a terrifying young man!”
“His age looks to be around 25 at most… But his cultivation has already stepped into the first level of the Void Initiation Stage. Moreover, he has comprehended first level Wind Concept and Advanced Lightning Force!”
“Where exactly did such a monstrous genius martial artist come from? With his strength, he probably has the qualifications to participate in the Dynasty Martial Competition that’s being held in another eight months, right?”
“None of the experts of the younger generation of our Eastern Mulberry Empire are able to compare to him.”
The surrounding crowd of spectators sighed with emotion as they were all filled with admiration towards Duan Ling Tian’s natural talent and comprehension ability.
“Kid!” Right at this moment, the low and oppressive voice of the Tang Clan’s Grand Elder sounded out slowly. “First you disrespected my Tang Clan, now you killed my Tang Clan’s disciple… Who exactly are you?”
