Chapter 680: In Confrontation With The Emperor
Translator: KurazyTolanzuraytor Editor: Jay
The two young men followed behind the Eight Bearer Palanquin, and in the blink of an eye, they’d arrived in the sky above the Cage Battle Arena.
Meanwhile, two more ear piercing sounds resounded out, and it drew the gazes of most of the people present.
Subsequently, under the gazes of everyone present, after the Eight Bearer Palanquin left the layer of clouds and mist, two more aged figures had appeared, and they were old men that were beaming with spirit.
In the blink of an eye, the two old men arrived before the Eight Bearer Palanquin and bowed.
“Your Majesty.” The two old man spoke respectfully in unison.
At the same time, one of the old men walked ahead to lift open the curtain that covered the door to the palanquin and looked in. “Your Majesty, please.”
A dignified middle aged man in a golden dragon robe slowly walked out of the palanquin, and he stepped on the sky as if he was stepping on the ground.
The dignified middle aged man had an obvious moustache that was shaped like the ‘八’ character, and it looked to be very distinguishing.
This ‘八’ character shaped moustache caused one to have a deep impression of him, and it was like the deep impression the red mole between King Yong’s brows gave others.
“He’s the Darkhan Dynasty’s Emperor?” Duan Ling Tian thought in his heart.
“Your Majesty!” Meanwhile, besides the group of people that still sat on the spot in the first-class spectating area, and some of them not even having the slightest reaction, everyone in the third-class and second-class spectating area stood up, and they bowed respectfully to the Emperor of the Darkhan Dynasty.
Only Duan Ling Tian stood up with the others and nodded indifferently, and he didn’t even bend his back.
Not many people noticed this scene, yet the Darkhan Dynasty’s Emperor just happened to see it, as he just happened to be lightly smiling and glanced at the area that Duan Ling Tian stood, causing him to notice that Duan Ling Tian didn’t bow to him.
At this moment, Duan Ling Tian was like a giant amongst dwarves in the eyes of the Darkhan Dynasty’s Emperor.
For a time, the smile on the Emperor’s face froze.
It was understandable that the people in the first-class spectating area didn’t have the slightest reaction, as every single one of them had extremely extraordinary identities, after all.
A few of the people were even existences that he didn’t dare easily offend.
“Everyone else has bowed in salute to me, yet why do you not bow?” The Emperor stroked the moustache on his mouth as he stared fixedly at Duan Ling Tian and asked. “Could it be that you feel I don’t have the qualifications to make you bow?” Instantly, the scene went into an uproar.
The gazes of everyone followed along the Emperor’s gaze to descend onto Duan Ling Tian in unison.
“It’s that young man of the Darkstone Empire!”
“Although this young man is young, yet his strength is extraordinary… But he actually dares to not bow when facing his Majesty, he’s truly arrogant.”
“Someone from a tiny Empire actually dares to not bow when facing the Emperor of our Darkhan Dynasty… It’s simply a great disrespect!”
“It looks to me that he’s going to be struck with misfortune.”
The crowd of spectators in the Cage Battle Arena discussed animatedly.
Some took pleasure in Duan Ling Tian’s misfortune while others broke out in cold sweat for him.
“Your Majesty, he was awed by your majestic appearance earlier, and that’s why he was impolite… I hope that your Majesty can pardon his offense.” When he saw the Emperor of the Darkhan Dynasty was directing his words at Duan Ling Tian, King Yong broke out in cold sweat from fear, and he spoke with a terrified expression.
Although he was the number one expert of the Darkstone Empire, he was still nothing before the Emperor of the Darkhan Dynasty.
If the Emperor wanted to kill him, the Emperor only had to say the word.
“And who are you?” The Emperor looked at King Yong and asked indifferently.
“Your Majesty, I’m the representative of the Darkstone Empire this time, a King of the Darkstone Empire’s Imperial Family.” King Yong replied.
“The Darkstone Empire?” The Emperor pondered slightly and then said, “You’re the number one expert of the Darkstone Empire, King Yong? I’ve heard of you.”
“Your Majesty, I am King Yong.” When he heard this, at the same time that he was overwhelmed by the unexpected favor, a bitter smile appeared on King Yong’s face.
The number one expert of the Darkstone Empire?
Not to mention anything else, he could casually find a large number of experts with strengths much stronger than him amongst the group of experts present…
In this place, the so-called number one expert of the Darkstone Empire was nothing worth mentioning.
“He’s a member of your Darkstone Empire?” The Emperor glanced at Duan Ling Tian before looking at King Yong and asked with a low voice.
“Yes.” King Yong nodded as cold sweat broke out from his forehead and his palms went cold.
At this moment, he only hoped that the person from the Feng Clan would be able to speak out and help Duan Ling Tian out of this predicament in a timely manner.
He believed that so long as that person spoke out, even if this Emperor of the Darkhan Dynasty was any more displeased by Duan Ling Tian, he would give that person some face.
“Since he’s a member of your Darkstone Empire, then as the representative, you can’t absolve yourself from punishment as well! Both of you must be punished.” The Emperor’s tone was calm as if he was speaking of a trivial matter.
“On what basis?!” Right at this moment, Duan Ling Tian who’s silently watched the events unfold couldn’t sit idly by any longer, and he flashed out to stand before King Yong and looked up towards the Emperor as he shouted out with a light voice.
On what basis?
Duan Ling Tian’s shout spread out to the entire Cage Battle Arena.
Hiss! Hiss! Hiss! Hiss! Hiss!
For a time, the sounds of gasping rose and fell continuously in the surroundings of the Cage Battle Arena.
Most of the people present felt their scalps go numb.
Has this young man from the Darkstone Empire gone mad?
No matter how high his natural talent is, he hasn’t matured after all. So long as the Emperor says a single word, he’d practically only be left with an end of certain death.
“On what basis?” The Emperor’s calm expression was finally destroyed by Duan Ling Tian, and he abruptly took a step forward before his dignified voice sounded out once more. “On the basis that I’m the Emperor of the Darkhan Dynasty and ruler over the entire Darkhan Dynasty… Is this enough?”
When faced with the Emperor using the power of the Darkhan Dynasty’s Imperial Family to oppress him, Duan Ling Tian’s expression remained unchanged.
Or perhaps, he was utterly not worried in the slightest.
Even if the Darkhan Dynasty’s Emperor wanted to lay a hand on him, Feng Wu Dao wouldn’t be wiling. Not to mention he had a deep relationship with Feng Wu Dao’s entire family, even if they didn’t have a deep relationship, Feng Wu Dao would still not stand idly by.
After all, he was the man that was in Feng Tian Wu’s destiny according to that prediction, and he was the man capable of saving Feng Tian Wu.
“Duan Ling Tian.” Su Li’s expression darkened slightly, and he broke out in cold sweat for Duan Ling Tian.
Besides Long Yun who had an expressionless face, the other young geniuses of the Darkstone Empire looked at Duan Ling Tian with slight worry on their faces.
“Narrow minded and making a fuss over a trifling matter… I really don’t know how the Darkhan Dynasty would have an Emperor like you.” Duan Ling Tian raised his head to look at the Emperor with a calm expression, and he spoke unhurriedly.
In Duan Ling Tian’s dictionary, there was always the saying ‘Offend only when offended.’ If there really was someone who offended him, then he wouldn’t be afraid of the trouble that ensued.
No matter who the person is nor how shocking the person’s identity was…
“Presumptuous!” Right when the Emperor was angered to the point his expression went ominous, the two old men that stood before the palanquin shouted out.
Besides that, the soldiers that held up the palanquin emitted cold lights from their eyes at this moment, and they stared fixedly at Duan Ling Tian.
It was as if they were prepared to leave the palanquin and attack Duan Ling Tian at any moment.
As for the other two young men.
The expression of the black clothed young man darkened slightly, whereas, the white clothed young man looked at Duan Ling Tian with a fearful expression.
Compared to the other people of the Imperial Family, he was more familiar towards Duan Ling Tian and knew that Duan Ling Tian had a deep relationship with that person of the Feng Clan.
“Speaking shamelessly and humiliating his Majesty… You deserve death!” As soon as one of the old men before the palanquin finished speaking, he’d transformed into a bolt of lightning that shot straight towards Duan Ling Tian.
“Father!” On the first-class spectating area that belong to the Feng Clan, Feng Tian Wu looked anxiously at Feng Wu Dao.
But Feng Wu Dao didn’t make the slightest movement, and he only shook his head. “Don’t worry, he’ll be fine.
Practically at the instant Feng Wu Dao finished speaking, the old man had already arrived nearby Duan Ling Tian, and with a raise of his hand, vast Origin Energy raged.
Subsequently, he slapped out with his palm, giving rise to a wave of roiling wind.
In the next moment, an enormous palm print condensed into form from Origin Energy whistled out to envelop Duan Ling Tian.
“Stay your hand!” Right when Duan Ling Tian thought Feng Wu Dao would make a move, a rather familiar voice exploded out by Duan Ling Tian’s ears, and the voice was filled with slight anxiousness.
Subsequently, a wave of ear piercing howls of the wind could be heard approaching him.
A material sword light tore through the sky and easily destroyed the enormous palm print that swept towards Duan Ling Tian.
At the same time, a tall figure appeared before Duan Ling Tian and firmly protected Duan Ling Tian behind himself.
“Pavilion Master Xiang?” When he thought of the familiar voice from before and saw the familiar figure before him, Duan Ling Tian recognized the person that had appeared in time to save him.
It was precisely the Milky Way City’s Treasure Gathering Pavilion’s Master, the Vice Guild Master of the Darkhan Dynasty’s Weapons Craftsmen Guild’s Main Guild, Xiang Ying.
“We meet again… We’ll catch up later.” Xiang Ying turned around to lightly smile at Duan Ling Tian before turning his head around once more.
He didn’t look at the old man that attacked Duan Ling Tian but instead look at the Emperor of the Darkhan Dynasty. “Your Majesty, this is a Little Brother of mine… I hope that you can give me some face and forgive this Little Brother of mine for the incident today. How about it?”
“Xiang Ying!” The Emperor frowned slightly when he saw Xiang Ying appear, and he shook his head when he heard Xiang Ying. “This matter isn’t related to you, you’d better not involve yourself in it!”
If it was anything else, he would perhaps give Xiang Ying some face.
After all, Xiang Ying was one of the few grade four Weapons Craftsmen in the Darkhan Dynasty, and doing a grade four Weapons Craftsman a favor was entirely beneficial.
But when he thought of how Duan Ling Tian had publicly humiliated him, flames of rage leaped up in his heart once more and were difficult to put out, causing him to wish for nothing more than to see Duan Ling Tian die miserably on the spot.
If it wasn’t for him being the Emperor of the Darkhan Dynasty and every action of his represented the Darkhan Dynasty, he’d have personally killed Duan Ling Tian since long ago.
The Emperors resolution exceeded Xiang Ying’s expectations.
For a time, Xiang Ying was slightly hesitant.
If he continued to persist, he would undoubtedly offend the Emperor.
But if he didn’t persist, Duan Ling Tian would probably die here today.
Suddenly, a flash of inspiration arose in Xiang Ying’s mind, and he looked at the Emperor as he said via voice transmission, “Your Majesty, there’s something I have to tell you… Behind this Little Brother of mine is a grade three Weapons Craftsman that has a deep relationship with him.”
Grade three Weapons Craftsman!
The Emperor who originally had a resolute expression couldn’t help but waver slightly when he heard Xiang Ying’s voice transmission, and there was even slight fear in the depths of his eyes.
“Is what you said true?” Meanwhile, the Emperor was slightly hesitant.
