Translator: KurazyTolanzuraytor Editor: Jay
Presently, when she heard Duan Ling Tian, Han Xue Nai’s expression revealed a light smile that could turn all living creature’s upside down.
“Big Brother Ling Tian, what do you think?” Han Xue Nai looked at Duan Ling Tian with an intention of allowing Duan Ling Tian to decide.
From the beginning until the end, Han Xue Nai didn’t look the four people that surrounded them in the eye.
Perhaps in her eyes, these four people weren’t worthy of her looking them in the eye.
“I think we can let them have a taste of their own medicine… For example, let them choose to either put down the jade sword or be thickheaded and die!” Duan Ling Tian spoke indifferently, and as he finished speaking, his gaze swept past the four people that surrounded him and Han Xue Nai.
As soon as Duan Ling Tian finished speaking, everyone in the surroundings couldn’t help but be stunned.
“Has this young man gone mad?”
“He’s obviously courting death!”
No one looked favorably upon Duan Ling Tian.
Dong Ming frowned, he originally wanted to say something, yet when he saw the confidence that Duan Ling Tian’s eyes emitted, he instead became slightly hesitant for a time.
“Where does Brother Ling Tian get such great confidence from?” Dong Ming’s heart was filled with curiosity.
Subconsciously, he had a strong feeling of intuition that Duan Ling Tian’s confidence seemed to not be something without reason.
The four people that surrounded Duan Ling Tian were stunned for a moment when they heard Duan Ling Tian’s words.
The emaciated old man was the first to react, and he said with rage, “Looks like both of you really don’t want to hand over the jade sword… Since it’s like that, then this old fellow will send you on your way!”
As soon as the emaciated old man finished speaking, he flashed out like an eagle that plunged towards Duan Ling Tian.
His vast Origin Energy condensed into form in his hand, transforming into palm prints that covered the sky, and it formed a heaven encompassing net that enveloped down towards Duan Ling Tian.
In the sky, ten lifelike ancient horned dragon silhouettes appeared.
“Seventh level of the Void Initiation Stage!” Duan Ling Tian’s brows raised.
“Hmph!” Right at this moment, a cold snort suddenly sounded out.
It was Han Xue Nai who was beside Duan Ling Tian that made a move, with a raise of her hand, piercingly cold winds swept out to meet the emaciated old man, whereas, the emaciated old man’s figure instantly stopped halfway.
His entire body had transformed into an ice sculpture that was connected to the ground, and he didn’t move in the slightest.
The palm prints that covered the sky were blasted into dispersion by the cold wind that was icy cold to the extreme, and it transformed into nothingness.
The gorge was completely deathly silent as expected.
Everyone stared blankly at the scene before them, and they were completely dumbstruck.
For a time, only the sound of a breeze blowing by could be heard in the gorge.
A great seventh level Void Initiation Stage expert was frozen into a popsicle by a young girl around the age of 15 or 16 with a raise of her hand?
“Old man!” The grey clothed old woman went pale in expression as she exclaimed in sorrow and pounced towards the ice sculpture with the intention of saving the old man that was frozen within.
“Stay your hand!” Meanwhile, the two middle aged men in embroidered clothes went grim in expression as they hurriedly shouted out to stop her.
Unfortunately, their warning was still too late.
When the hand of the grey clothed old woman touched the ice sculpture.
A hideous crack instantly split open on the ice sculpture, and it was like a spider’s web as it spread out towards the surroundings.
When the cracks spread to the limit.
The ice sculpture transformed into countless pieces of ice that crashed to the ground, whereas, the body of the emaciated old man that was frozen inside shattered into pieces along with the ice sculpture.
Even though the old man had died, he didn’t leave behind even a trace of blood.
The peculiar scene caused the people that had recovered from their shock to gasp.
“Old… Old man…” The old woman was stunned, completely dumbstruck.
She’d killed her own husband?
“I want you dead!” Under her extreme rage, the old woman lost all reason and disregarded her life as she pounced towards Han Xue Nai.
The outcome was obvious.
The old woman transformed into an ice sculpture as well, and she stood there with a strange posture.
“Hmph!” Along with Han Xue Nai snorting coldly and lightly raising her hand to touch the ice sculpture, the ice sculpture that sealed the old woman within was instantly shattered into countless pieces.
The old woman followed in the footsteps of her husband.
“What a terrifying Ice Concept!” Dong Ming’s pupils constricted, and his heartbeat abruptly quickened.
Now he finally understood why Duan Ling Tian would be so confident.
So it turned out that such an expert existed by Duan Ling Tian’s side.
Killing two seventh level Void Initiation Stage martial artists was simply as easy as killing chicken and cutting grass…
If he didn’t see it with his own two eyes, it would be difficult for him to believe it.
A young girl that looked to be 15 or 16 at most actually possessed such a terrifying cultivation.
Most importantly, from the beginning until the end, when the young girl attacked twice, the energy of heaven and earth hadn’t completely condensed into ancient horned dragon silhouettes when she’d already stopped attacking, and it caused others to be unable to see through what exactly her cultivation was.
In the next moment, a thought suddenly emerged in Dong Ming’s mind.
After this thought arose, it was difficult to disperse any longer.
A Void Transformation Stage demon beast was able to take human form, and it was called as a ‘Demon.’
This was something that was common knowledge.
Most importantly, after a Void Transformation Stage demon beast took human form, it had a chance to construct its outward appearance by itself.
According to rumor, some demons with strange tempers like to transform themselves into the appearance of human children.
In the Foreign Lands, it would usually be very likely that human children that looked to be around 7 or 8 years of age were Void Transformation Stage Demons, and their strengths were extremely terrifying.
It wasn’t only Dong Ming, many people had similar thoughts.
“She… She…” The body of the old man called Elder Hu that stood by Dong Ming’s side started to tremble imperceptibly.
When he recalled the conflict he had with the young girl earlier, he couldn’t help but feel a lingering fear in his heart.
If he were to have dared make a move against the young girl at that time, he could imagine the outcome.
The young girl killed seventh level Void Initiation Stage martial artists like she was cutting grass and slaughtering chickens…
He didn’t think that he would be any better than those seventh level Void Initiation Stage martial artists.
Along with Duan Ling Tian and Han Xue Nai’s gaze moving to shoot at the two middle aged men in embroidered clothes that surrounded them, the gazes of the other people descended onto the two of them in unison as well.
At this moment, their gazes were filled with pity.
“You… Both of you… Both of you are the people that slaughtered all the higher-ups of the Tang Clan including their Grand Elder and Patriarch two days ago?” The middle aged man that held the jade sword had recalled the incident that gave rise to much discussion in the Eastern Mulberry Empire’s Imperial City two days ago since long ago when Han Xue Nai attacked the first time.
Now he had to connect that incident with the yellow clothed young girl before him, because their methods were too similar.
“I remember now!” An old man that was spectating couldn’t help but exclaim in shock. “I heard that two days ago, a terrifying young girl that comprehended Ice Concept transformed all the higher-ups of the Tang Clan into ice sculptures before killing them… So it was her!”
“I heard of that incident as well… Supposedly, that young girl can even kill eighth level Void Initiation Stage martial artists with a raise of her hand.”
“Looks like someone is going to be struck with misfortune.”
The surrounding people whispered in discussion.
They didn’t have the slightest pity towards the two middle aged men that went ghastly pale and were shivering.
At the root of it all, the incident was something that the two middle aged men had brought upon themselves, and they couldn’t blame others.
When you come out into the world, you have to pay your debts in the end.
“I’ll hand over the jade sword to you, I’ll hand over my jade sword to you… Don’t kill me, don’t kill me!” The middle aged man that held a jade sword took the jade sword to be a hot sweet potato at this moment, and he hurriedly tossed it below Han Xue Nai’s feed as he spoke in panic.
“The jade sword is yours, we give up out chance to enter the Sword Monarch’s Treasure, we’ll leave now, we’ll leave now!!” The other middle aged man glanced at Han Xue Nai with fear, and when he noticed Han Xue Nai’s face was expressionless, he took a deep breath before Origin Energy skyrocketed beneath his feet and he charged into the sky.
The other middle aged man before him instantly followed up when he saw his companion leaving.
“Big Brother Ling Tian gave both of you a chance, and it’s both of you that didn’t treasure it properly.” Han Xue Nai spoke slowly with a voice that was moving like an oriole’s, but when it entered into the ears of everyone present, it was instead no different to the voice of a devil.
Along with Han Xue Nai raising her hand, a strong gale that was icy cold to the extreme swept out and shot into the sky.
Instantly, the two middle aged men that had just soared into the sky stiffened, and they transformed into two ice sculptures that floated in the sky, and they gently glowed under the rays of the scorching sun.
The Origin Energy on their bodies were ceaselessly being suppressed, and after a short moment, it was completely consumed.
The two ice sculptures lost the support of Origin Energy and crashed onto the ground to shatter into two piles of ice fragments.
The gorge was deathly silent once more.
Besides Duan Ling Tian, the gazes everyone shot at Han Xue Nai was filled with terror, terror that came from the soul.
This young girl’s ability had completely stunned them.
“If she’s a human, she’s at least a Void Interpretation Stage expert! Or perhaps she’s a ‘Demon’ that has stepped into the Void Transformation Stage!” This was the uniform thought that arose in the hearts of everyone present.
Duan Ling Tian took two steps forward and searching for a moment in the pile of ice where the emaciated old man’s ice sculpture shattered before digging out the jade sword that originally belonged to the old man.
The jade sword was without a single scratch on it, and Duan Ling Tian wasn’t surprised by this.
This jade sword was the key to the Sword Monarch’s Treasure at any rate, something that was left behind by a Martial Monarch.
Unless it was an expert at the Martial Monarch Stage or above, it would probably be as difficult as ascending the heavens for an ordinary martial artist to damage it.
Subsequently, Duan Ling Tian picked up the jade sword that was by Han Xue Nai’s feet.
For a time, Duan Ling Tian had three jade swords in his hand.
“Everyone, please take out your jade swords and allow the nine swords to unite into one so that it may lead us to head towards the Sword Monarch’s Treasure!” Duan Ling Tian’s gaze swept past the remaining six groups of people.
These people were all the people that had agreed to unite the jade swords.
They didn’t refuse to unite the nine swords earlier, and not that they’d witnessed Han Xue Nai’s strength that was terrifying to the extreme, they didn’t dare dally even more and let go of the jade sword in their hands, whereas, Duan Ling Tian let go of the three jade swords in his hand as well.
Instantly, the nine jade swords shot into the sky and collided together.
A strong light flashed by, and it caused everyone to unconsciously narrow their eyes.
When everyone including Duan Ling Tian opened their eyes once more, a completely new jade sword had appeared before their eyes.
This was a jade sword that flickered with jade green flowing lights on its entire body, and it emitted waves of sharp and fierce aura.
The jade sword trembled before transforming into a jade light by itself and flashing towards the south.
Instantly, all of them transformed into flowing lights that chased up to it.
“Let’s go as well!” Duan Ling Tian called out to Han Xue Nai before following up to the completely new jade sword.
