Chapter 647: Three Corpses
Translator: KurazyTolanzuraytor Editor: Jay
Relying on his acute Spiritual Force, Duan Ling Tian could determine that these three people were the three people that were following him three months ago, and they seemed to be sent over by the Zhang Clan Patriarch’s wife and son.
As for their objective, Duan Ling Tian was vaguely able to guess that they ought to be here to take his life.
Since all of you are so patient and have waited for three months… Then I’ll play with you. Duan Ling Tian stood outside the Darkstone Estate, and the corners of his mouth curled into an evil smile.
Of course, the three people that were concealed in the shadows were bound to be unable to see Duan Ling Tian’s current smile.
Subsequently, Duan Ling Tian acted as if nothing happened and distanced himself from the Darkstone Estate.
Duan Ling Tian could clearly notice that after he left, those three people followed behind him like shadows, and it was as if they were three strands of cancer.
Not long after, Duan Ling Tian just happened to pass through a remote and empty alley.
Besides Duan Ling Tian, not a single other person could be seen at either side of the alley.
Whoosh! Whoosh! Whoosh!
Right at this moment, three ear piercing howls of the wind swept out at almost the exact same instant, and they charged towards Duan Ling Tian.
In the blink of an eye, Duan Ling Tian was surrounded by three middle aged men in black clothes, and it was as if a heaven encompassing net had tightly trapped him.
Duan Ling Tian had a carefree expression when faced with the sudden arrival of the three people.
The scene before his eyes was within his expectations.
“If I’m not wrong, all of you ought to have been sent over by the Zhang Clan’s Patriarch’s wife and the Second Young Master, right?” Duan Ling Tian glanced indifferently at the black clothed middle aged men and spoke slowly.
The three black clothed middle aged men remained unchanged in expression, and it was as if they’d utterly not heard Duan Ling Tian’s words.
But Duan Ling Tian who had an acute observation ability was still able to notice a trace of surprise in the depths of their eyes.
It really is them! Now Duan Ling Tian had completely confirmed it.
“Kill!” Suddenly, the middle aged man that stood at Duan Ling Tian’s left side shouted out with a low voice.
Practically the instant he finished speaking, he moved as if he’d transformed into a starving tiger that opened its blood mouth as it pounced towards Duan Ling Tian.
As for his other two companions, they’d attacked along with him.
Whoosh! Whoosh! Whoosh!
At the instant they made a move, 11 ancient horned dragon silhouettes appeared above each of them…
At this moment, the three of them didn’t utilize their spirit weapons or Concept.
In other words, their true cultivation was at the eighth level of the Void Initiation Stage.
The cultivation the three of them revealed wasn’t the slightest bit surprising to Duan Ling Tian.
Because when he noticed these three people three months ago, Duan Ling Tian had used his Spiritual Force to detect their cultivations.
Three eighth level Void Initiation Stage martial artists.
At that time, Duan Ling Tian’s cultivation was only at the fifth level of the Void Initiation Stage, and not to mention utilizing the Quasi Royal Grade spirit weapon, even if he used all his ability, it would still be difficult to kill them.
Even if Duan Ling Tian utilized his Spiritual Force that had attained the seventh level of the Void Initiation Stage and executed the soul skill, Thousand Illusions, it would still be impossible to do anything against them.
So at that time, Duan Ling Tian acted as if he didn’t notice them.
At any rate, the Darkstone Estate was protected by King Yong, and he wasn’t worried about the three of them entering in to kill him.
Now, his cultivation had broken through to the sixth level of the Void Initiation Stage, and his Spiritual Force had followed along this to break through to the eighth level of the Void Initiation Stage…
Three Eighth level Void Initiation Stage martial artists, and none of them are Inscription Masters. This was something Duan Ling Tian had already confirmed three months ago.
If there was an Inscription Master amongst the three of them, then when Duan Ling Tian used his Spiritual Force to detect their cultivations three months ago, they’d have surely noticed it. Yet the three of them didn’t notice Duan Ling Tian’s Spiritual Force in the slightest on that day, and Duan Ling Tian could know from this that there wasn’t an Inscription Master amongst them.
When face with the three eighth level Void Initiation Stage martial artists that approached menacingly, Duan Ling Tian’s eyes squinted as strands of dim lights started flickering within.
In the next moment, Duan Ling Tian’s Spiritual Force instantly fused into the soul brand at the depths of his soul to execute the soul skill the belonged exclusively to him.
An illusory space that was difficult to perceive was constructed by Duan Ling Tian, and it swept out to envelop 10 meters around the area he was at.
At the same time, the three eighth level Void Initiation Stage middle aged men who had withdrew their spirit weapons and utilized their Concept entered successively into the illusory space.
In Duan Ling Tian’s field of vision, after the three people approached him, they instantly changed their targets and started fighting each other.
Meanwhile, Duan Ling Tian unhurriedly walked to the side of the remote alley and leisurely watched the three people fight to their heart’s content.
The battle between the three people was extremely tragic, and one of them was heavily injured by the joint attacks of the others after a short moment.
“Ah!” A shrill cry sounded out, and the person that was heavily injured had been killed by the other two people.
Duan Ling Tian watched coldly from the side when the black clothed middle aged man fell into a pool of blood.
Although he was complete strangers with the three people before him, since they wanted to kill him, he naturally wouldn’t hold back.
Karma would one day come to bite back!
At the same time, the remaining two people started to battle each other.
After half an hour, another person was killed.
The last person was heavily injured and at the gate of death, and he used his spirit saber to support himself. Obviously, he wouldn’t live for long.
“Clap clap clap clap!” When he saw this person wasn’t a threat any longer, Duan Ling Tian clapped as he dispersed the illusory space created by the soul skill, Thousand Illusion.
At the same time, the black clothed middle aged man that was heavily injured and at death’s door noticed that he’d left that mysterious place to return to the remote alley.
With a glance, he noticed his two companions that were dead in a pool of blood, and he couldn’t help but go pale.
In next to no time, he noticed an extremely terrifying thing.
The injuries on both his companions were extremely familiar to him…
Subsequently, his gaze descended onto the spirit saber in his hand.
Fresh blood was ceaselessly dripping from it.
“It… It was me?” The middle aged man’s face went deathly pale as his pupils constricted, and his body started shivering. He was unwilling to believe that all this was real.
“Exactly, it was you.” At the same time, an indifferent voice entered into the middle aged man’s ears in a timely manner, and it caused him to have an astonished expression.
“You… How can you…? No… Impossible!” When the middle aged man turned around, he saw Duan Ling Tian, who stood at the side of the alley as if nothing had happened, and he couldn’t help but be terrified to the point of ceaselessly shaking his head.
As far as he was concerned, it was impossible for everything before his eyes to be real!
He’s obviously killed the young man twice earlier…
But now, the young man was perfectly well, yet his two companions were dead instead.
“Nothing is impossible.” Duan Ling Tian glanced indifferently at the black clothed middle aged man, and seeming to have noticed the middle aged man’s disbelief, Duan Ling Tian said slowly, “There’re many things in this world that you’re unable to understand… Just like what happened earlier.”
“Perhaps, you utterly don’t know how you’d suddenly arrived at another place and don’t know why I would appear once more after you killed me once… At the same time, you wouldn’t have imagined that the two people you killed successively were both your companions.” As Duan Ling Tian spoke, every word of his seemed to transform into a sharp blade that ceaselessly penetrated through the middle aged man’s chest, and it caused the middle aged man’s body to trembled even more violently.
Presently, in the eyes of the black clothed middle aged man, the violet clothed young man who carried a light smile on his face was no different than a devil. “Devil… You… You’re a devil! You’re a devil!”
“Devil? Perhaps.” The corners of Duan Ling Tian’s mouth curled into an indistinct evil smile.
“Devil! I’ll kill you!” The middle aged man struggled to charge towards Duan Ling Tian and kill Duan Ling Tian.
But unfortunately, he’d only taken a step out when his body that lost the support of his spirit saber couldn’t support itself any longer and crashed onto the ground.
His injuries were too heavy.
“If you have another life, remember not to be the lackey of another… Only by becoming one at the top would you be able to control your own fate.” At the same time that Duan Ling Tian spoke indifferently, the Origin Energy in his hand condensed into a three foot long blade, and then his hand rose and fell to end the life of the black clothed middle aged man.
Since both of you want to play, then I’ll accompany you. After Duan Ling Tian dispersed the three foot long blade on his hand that was condensed into form from Origin Energy, he swiftly turned around to look towards the direction of the Zhang Clan Estate, and his face was covered in a layer of ice.
Subsequently, Duan Ling Tian raised his hand to pull off the belt of one of the middle aged men before tying the three corpses together.
In the next moment, Duan Ling Tian dragged the three corpses as he soared into the sky.
Even though he was carrying three corpses, Duan Ling Tian’s movements were still extremely swift, and he seemed to have transformed into a gust of wind that quickly arrived before the Zhang Clan Estate’s entrance.
“Young Master Ling Tian.” Duan Ling Tian had just descended outside the Zhang Clan Estate’s entrance when the Zhang Clan guards outside had already bowed respectfully to Duan Ling Tian.
Duan Ling Tian lightly smiled and nodded to these Zhang Clan guards, and it caused them to feel as if they were bathing in the breeze of summer.
“Young Master Ling Tian is truly amiable.”
“As expected of the Eldest Young Master’s friend, he’s neither arrogant nor conceited.”
The three Zhang Clan guards whispered in discussion and they held Duan Ling Tian in extremely his esteem.
“That’s… Three corpses?” In next to no time, a Zhang Clan guard with a discerning gaze saw that Duan Ling Tian was actually dragging along three corpses and had thrown them at the entrance of the Zhang Clan Estate.
“What does Young Master Ling Tian want to do?” For a time, the Zhang Clan guards went slightly pale and felt their scalps go numb.
Wasn’t the violet clothed young man before them the friend of their Young Master?
Bringing along corpses to pay a visit wasn’t something a friend did, right?
“Do all of you know these three people?” Duan Ling Tian looked at the Zhang Clan guards and lightly smiled as he asked.
But at this moment, his smile was no different than the smile of a devil when it entered the eyes of these guards.
However, they still couldn’t refrain from moving their gazes onto the three corpses.
After a short moment, their expressions turned to one of shock.
“They… Aren’t they the guards by the Patriarch’s wife’s side?”
“It’s them! I still remember when the Madam was married over all those years ago, these three people were part of the Madam’s dowry.”
Some of the Zhang Clan guards recognized these three corpses with a glance.
“They’re all existences at the eighth level of the Void Initiation Stage… I wonder who killed them.”
“The relationship between Madam, Second Young Master, and Young Master Ling Tian seems… Could it be…?”
In next to no time, the Zhang Clan guards looked at Duan Ling Tian with a fearful expression.
Although they didn’t think that Duan Ling Tian had the ability to kill three eighth level Void Initiation Stage martial artists, it might have been an expert backing Duan Ling Tian that made a move to kill these three people.
