Chapter 704: Duan Ling Tian Is Challenged
Translator: KurazyTolanzuraytor Editor: Jay
After a short moment, Zi Shang and Bai He both left the central area of the sky above the Cage Battle Arena.
“Next.” Meanwhile, the old man spoke once more.
Practically the instant the old man finished speaking, a figure had already flashed out. He’d arrived at the central area of the sky above the Cage Battle Arena at the first possible moment.
“Ye Xiao!” Instantly, the person that entered the arena drew the attention of most people.
Presently, the person that entered the arena was precisely the Ye Clan’s Eldest Young Master, Ye Xiao.
Up until now, two battles had been carried out in the ranking battles for the top six positions. The first battle was between Ye Xiao and Zhang Shou Yong, and now, Yue Xiao had once again occupied the deciding position, and it caused many people to be unable to refrain from feeling curious.
Who will this Ye Xiao challenge this time?
Under the gazes of everyone present, Ye Xiao’s gaze directly locked onto a single person. “Duan Ling Tian!”
When he saw Ye Xiao look over and call out his name, Duan Ling Tian’s expression remained unchanged as he flashed out to instantly arrive in the sky above the Cage Battle Arena to stand in confrontation with Ye Xiao.
Duan Ling Tian wasn’t surprised that Ye Xiao challenged him.
After all, he’d first taught Ye Xiao’s younger brother, Ye Xiang, a lesson, then killed the second strongest young expert of the Ye Clan’s younger generation, Ye Lu.
It was completely within reason that Ye Xiao would want to get even with him.
“Duan Ling Tian, you possess this cultivation at such an age… Needless to say, your natural talent is extremely strong. Unfortunately, the path towards the Martial Dao doesn’t only rely on natural talent, it relies even more on comprehension ability.” Obviously, Ye Xiao didn’t think that Duan Ling Tian’s comprehension in Concept was high.
“Are you lecturing me?” Duan Ling Tian couldn’t refrain from laughing. “It’s still unknown if you can defeat me, yet you’re already impatiently lecturing me here? It seems to be slightly improper, right? Or to say it more bluntly, do you have the qualifications?”
“Hmph! You’ll know soon enough if I have the qualifications.” Ye Xiao grunted coldly as his feet shook, and then his figure flashed out with the wind to charge towards Duan Ling Tian.
In his hands, the spirit saber than was like a crescent moon had appeared out of thin air, and Origin Energy raged on it as Concept followed the Origin Energy like a shadow, revealing his strength.
After Ye Xiao arrived nearby Duan Ling Tian, the spirit saber in his hand shook with a raise of his hand, and he was about to swing it down towards Duan Ling Tian.
Practically the instant Ye Xiao raised his hand, Duan Ling Tian moved.
In the eyes of many martial artists with low cultivations, Duan Ling Tian had instantly vanished on the spot, whereas, martial artists with deep cultivations were instead able to see that Duan Ling Tian seemed to have transformed into a gale that had already approached Ye Xiao before Ye Xiao swung his saber out.
In that instant, a wave of ear piercing sounds of wind and lightning suddenly resounded out, and then it stopped abruptly.
Subsequently, a slight howl of the sword instantly sounded out a swell, and then it instantly died down.
Besides people with deep cultivations, practically everyone else was unable to hear this howl of the sword.
“What a swift sword strike!” The pupils of many martial artists with deep cultivations couldn’t help but constrict when they saw the violet sword light that flashed in Duan Ling Tian’s hand.
Meanwhile, Ye Xiao’s grade four spirit saber had already flashed out towards Duan Ling Tian, who was extremely close to him, and it seemed to have transformed into a crescent moon that shot out with full fury.
Duan Ling Tian seemed as if he was prepared since long ago, and at the moment before Ye Xiao had swung out with his sword, Duan Ling Tian had moved unhurriedly to the side.
In the eyes of the group of people with deep cultivations, Duan Ling Tian had completed the actions of swinging his sword and sheathing it in the blink of an eye, whereas, at the instant he sheathed his sword, he seemed as if he possessed foresight and dodged to the side.
When Ye Xiao saw the crescent moon that flashed out and was powered by the group of stars lost its target, his eyes squinted, and then he wanted to control the crescent moon to change directions and chase after Duan Ling Tian.
“You’ve already lost.” An extremely indifferent voice suddenly sounded out, and it was Duan Ling Tian that spoke slowly.
Ye Xiao couldn’t help but be stunned when he heard Duan Ling Tian.
After he noticed the numerous strange gazes that shot at him from the surroundings, a bad premonition arose within his heart, and he hurriedly looked at Duan Ling Tian after withdrawing his spirit saber and said in a low voice, “What do you mean by this?”
Duan Ling Tian didn’t answer Ye Xiao, and his gaze moved slightly down to descend onto Ye Xiao’s throat.
A shallow mark of a sword had appeared on Ye Xiao’s throat, and a clear and dazzling mark of blood that was beautiful and resplendent appeared there.
When he noticed where Duan Ling Tian’s gaze was looking at, Ye Xiao faintly sensed his throat feeling slightly cold, and when he stretched out his hand to wipe his throat, he saw that his hand was covered in dazzling fresh blood.
“You… How could this be possible?!” Ye Xiao looked at Duan Ling Tian with a stunned gaze and an expression of disbelief.
Now, he was able to guess that Duan Ling Tian had already attacked the instant Duan Ling Tian approached him.
Earlier, there was a moment that he felt a cold wind blow past his throat, and at the beginning, he thought it was the wind in the air had suddenly become cold, but when he thought about it now, he knew it was caused by the blade of Duan Ling Tian’s sword.
Never had Ye Xiao imagined that Duan Ling Tian’s speed of striking with the sword was so fast, to the point that he didn’t even have the time to react before his throat was sliced.
At the same time, Ye Xiao broke out in cold sweat.
He could imagine that if Duan Ling Tian didn’t show mercy earlier, he would have already been killed by Duan Ling Tian with a single slit of the throat.
Duan Ling Tian’s methods of slitting the throat with a single strike was something that he’d witnessed earlier.
Their Ye Clan’s young genius, Ye Lu, had his throat slit by Duan Ling Tian with a single strike.
“Now do you still think that you have the qualifications to lecture me?” Duan Ling Tian stood at the side as he looked at Ye Xiao with a calm expression, and his gaze contained no discernible feelings.
“I admit that I indeed have no qualifications to lecture you… But I still have to thank you for showing mercy.” Ye Xiao took a deep breath, and his expression flickered before finally squeezing out a trace of a smile in the end.
As soon as he finished speaking, Ye Xiao left the central area of the sky above the Cage Battle Arena.
“Ye Xiao’s character isn’t bad. He isn’t like his younger brother.” When he saw Ye Xiao admit defeat so readily, it caused Duan Ling Tian to be unable to help but be surprised.
“Duan Ling Tian is victorious!” Meanwhile, the old man in the sky above the Cage Battle Arena announced.
At this moment, the two old men that were in charge of presiding over the martial competition looked at Duan Ling Tian with slightly complicated gazes.
This violet clothed young man had entered into their field of vision when they came over with the Emperor earlier.
This was a person that dared be disrespectful to their Darkhan Dynasty’s Emperor.
Originally, they thought that the violet clothed young man was relying on his status at the son-in-law of Feng Wu Dao to dare be so unbridled, but now they didn’t think like this.
With the natural talent and comprehension ability the violet clothed young man revealed, he did indeed possess the ability to be arrogant.
“How can Duan Ling Tian possibly be so strong?” After Ye Xiao returned to the first-class spectating area the Ye Clan members were seated at, his second brother Ye Xiang’s expression was extremely unsightly as he looked at the violet clothed young man that stood in the sky, and his eyes were filled with unwillingness.
“Don’t go offend Duan Ling Tian again in the future… You, I, and our Ye Clan can’t afford to offend him.” Ye Xiao glanced at Ye Xiao with a gaze of warning, and he obviously didn’t speak these words only for Ye Xiang.
Presently, the Ye Clan’s Patriarch and all the Ye Clan higher-ups present laughed bitterly and helplessly.
They knew that Ye Xiao was right.
Not to mention Duan Ling Tian’s own terrifying natural talent and comprehension ability, just his background was sufficient to make their Ye Clan be afraid.
“So it turns out that Big Brother Duan concealed so much strength when fighting me that day… Even the number one expert in the Ye Clan’s younger generation, Ye Xiao, can’t withstand a single move of his.” After Feng Tian Wu received the Spatial Ring brought over by a worker of the Cage Battle Arena, she looked at Duan Ling Tian from afar as she muttered.
From Duan Ling Tian moving to him attacking, and then dodging to the side.
All of this happened in the blink of an eye, and the phenomenon of heaven and earth in the sky didn’t even have the time to condense into form.
It could be known from this that the speed Duan Ling Tian attacked with had already attain an extremely shocking degree.
“What a kid! He actually concealed his strength so deeply!” Feng Wu Dao’s gaze lit up, and a rare smile appeared on his face.
“Young Miss, how many Origin Stones did you earn for Brother Duan this time?” Elder Kong looked at Feng Tian Wu and asked with a smile.
“8,000 plus.” Feng Tian Wu recovered from her shock, and her absolutely beautiful face bloomed into a brilliant smile.
“Not bad… But, you won’t have such a good opportunity next time.” Elder Kong nodded.
Feng Tian Wu deeply agreed with Elder Kong’s words, as the reason she was able to earn so much this time was because the members of the Cage Battle Arena didn’t know Duan Ling Tian’s exact cultivation.
It was precisely because of this that in the battle between Duan Ling Tian and Ye Xiao, Duan Ling Tian’s odds would be must higher than Ye Xiao. Whereas after this battle, it would obviously be impossible for Duan Ling Tian’s odds to be so high. After all, he was an existence that was capable of defeating Ye Xiao in a single move.
“Duan Ling Tian’s strength is actually so strong… He’s able to defeat Ye Xiao in a single move, so doesn’t that mean that he’s also capable of defeating Bai He in a single move?” The Emperor’s brows raised, and he was slightly surprised.
At this moment, he seemed to have completely forgotten about Duan Ling Tian’s disrespect towards him at the beginning.
“He’s worthy of being Zi Shang’s rival. With his strength, he has the qualifications to become Zi Shang’s opponent.” The black clothed old man had a serious expression.
“How can this be possible? How can this Duan Ling Tian possibly possess such a terrifying strength?” The beautiful face of Zi Yan who sat at the side of the old man was covered in disbelief, and slight worry for her older brother, Zi Shang, was contained between her brows.
She knew clearly in her heart that the battle between her brother, Zi Shang, and Duan Ling Tian was unavoidable today.
Moreover, during these past few years, the motivation that drove her brother, Zi Shang, was undoubtedly Duan Ling Tian.
“Duan Ling Tian!” At the same time that Zi Shang himself revealed surprise as he looked at Duan Ling Tian now, he revealed burning battle intent, “Never had I expected that you possessed such formidable strength as well… But it’s good this way. Otherwise, it would be boring if you were too weak.”
“Impossible… Impossible… How old is he? How can he possible possess such a formidable strength?” After Bai He who was defeated by Zi Shang earlier had consumed a healing medicinal pill, his injuries had already completely healed, but after he witnessed Duan Ling Tian’s strength now, his eyes were filled with a sheen of disbelief.
At the beginning, after he witnessed the strength of Ye Xiao and Zhang Shou Yong, he knew clearly in his heart that he wasn’t a match for Ye Xiao and Zhang Shou Yong.
On the other hand, Bai Hao was his cousin brother. Even though Bai Hao had been wandering outside the Dynasty for many years, Bai Hao had sparred with him some time ago, and he knew he was far from being a match for Bai Hao.
