Chapter 710: The Bewilderment Of The Group Of Inscription Masters
Translator: KurazyTolanzuraytor Editor: Jay
Perhaps Zi Shang’s words were able to deceive the others, yet it wasn’t capable of deceiving Duan Ling Tian.
“I truly never imagined that this Zi Shang possessed an ability like that… After the flame brand appeared between his brows, his strength rose by at least a few times! The punch he swung at Bai Hao earlier contained Origin Energy that was at least at the fourth level of the Void Interpretation Stage.” As the person that had merged with the two lifetimes worth of memories of the Rebirth Martial Emperor, Duan Ling Tian was still capable of discerning this even without the phenomenon of the heavens and the earth.
Even though Duan Ling Tian was unwilling to admit it in his heart, he had to admit that he was absolutely not a match for Zi Shang at that moment.
“Looks like the fortuitous encounter Zi Shang obtained is extraordinary.” Duan Ling Tian thought to himself.
He clearly noticed the expressions of the people on the Imperial Family’s first-class spectating area when the flame brand appeared between Zi Shang’s brows and Zi Shang exploded out with a strength that was comparable to a Void Interpretation Stage expert.
At that time, he knew that all the members of the Imperial Family, including Zi Shang’ master, seemed to be utterly unaware that Zi Shang possessed a technique like this.
He could be sure that this technique of Zi Shang’s was something that only Zi Shang knew beforehand, and this technique ought to be from a ‘fortuitous encounter’ Zi Shang obtained in the past.
“Duan Ling Tian!” Suddenly, a voice sounded out by his ears, causing Duan Ling Tian to be pulled back from his thoughts.
It was Bai Hao who was in the sky above the Cage Battle Arena that had spoken once more. “I’m done.”
Obviously, Bai Hao had already finished resting.
Even though he was the party that lost in the battle earlier, yet he wasn’t the party that was injured because Feng Wu Dao had made a move in a timely manner to save him from Zi Shang.
Now, after he consumed a medicinal pill and recovered his Origin Energy to his prime, he beckoned at Duan Ling Tian to battle him.
After returning to his senses, Duan Ling Tian didn’t hesitate to fly out and stand in confrontation with Bai Hao.
Duan Ling Tian had a calm expression as he looked at Bai Hao.
Bai Hao was a Prince of the Darkhan Dynasty’s Imperial Family, his cultivation had surpassed the Second Prince Bai He, he’d comprehended ninth level Fire Concept and second level Rod Concept, and he possessed a grade three spirit spear.
Bai Hao was a formidable enemy to Duan Ling Tian.
Of course, he was only a formidable enemy to Duan Ling Tian if he didn’t execute his soul skill, Thousand Illusions.
Meanwhile, the surrounding crowd of spectators had moved their attention from Zi Shang towards Duan Ling Tian and Bai Hao, who were standing in confrontation.
They knew that the incident earlier had come to an end.
“I wonder if this young man from the Darkstone Empire is capable of defeating Prince Hao.”
“Up until now, his exact strength is still a mystery.”
“I’m really looking forward to him fighting.”
Many people stared at Duan Ling Tian with burning gazes.
Everyone from the Darkstone Empire even held their breaths.
All along the way until now, they’d felt proud of Duan Ling Tian because he was representing their Darkstone Empire in the Darkhan Dynasty.
So, they hoped that Duan Ling Tian would be able to continue going forward and defeat Bai Hao to obtain the second rank in the Dynasty Martial Competition today.
As for the first, they utterly didn’t dare think of it now.
The strength Zi Shang revealed caused them to be shocked from the bottom of their hearts.
That strength had already exceeded the scope of a Void Initiation Stage martial artist, and it wasn’t something Duan Ling Tian could go against.
At least, the current Duan Ling Tian was unable.
“The odds are really low…” On the spectating area that belonged to the Feng Clan, Feng Tian Wu returned to her seat as she mumbled.
“Young Miss, what’s the odds for Brother Duan in this battle?” Elder Kong asked curiously.
“It’s only 1:1.” Feng Tian Wu sighed.
“Then how much did you place on Brother Duan?” Elder Kong asked.
“I of course placed the entire pile of Origin Stones from the winnings and Big Brother Duan’s 5,000 low grade Origin Stones… It’s a total of 13,000 low grade Origin Stones.” Feng Tian Wu spoke as a matter of course.
The corners of Elder Kong’s mouth twitched as he said with a bitter smile, “If Brother Duan wins this battle, then you’ll be able to win another 13,000 low grade Origin Stones… It’s quite a lot.”
The Cage Battle Arena that was slightly clamorous had gradually quieted down.
In the sky above the Cage Battle Arena, the violet clothed young man and the white clothed young man stood facing each other, and the battle was imminent.
“Duan Ling Tian… You and I will battle each other soon! Even if you take the initiative to admit defeat, I’ll surely trample on your dignity, and make you unable to raise your head in the world forever!” Zi Shang stared fixedly at the violet clothed young man as a cold smile suffused the corners of his mouth, and his eyes flickered with a cold light.
Duan Ling Tian naturally noticed Zi Shang’s gaze, yet he disregarded it and his attention was completely converged onto Bai Hao, who was before him.
When he saw Bai Hao hadn’t attacked for a long time, he decided to take the initiative.
“Zi Shang even dared to utilize such a terrifying ability, and he casually fabricated a secret technique to dismiss the curiosity of others… Perhaps I can learn from him.” Duan Ling Tian came to a decision in his heart.
Practically the instant he made this decision, Duan Ling Tian moved.
At this instant, Duan Ling Tian seemed to have transformed into an extremely swift gale that swept towards Bai Hao.
When he saw a seven foot long spear appear out of thin air in Bai Hao’s hand and Origin Energy skyrocket on Bai Hao’s body to finally transform into material flames that were ready to gush out, Duan Ling Tian’s expression remained unchanged.
As his figure flashed out, a dim light flashed into appearance within the depths of Duan Ling Tian’s eyes that squinted.
Duan Ling Tian’s Spiritual Force didn’t hesitate in the slightest to practically instantly fuse into the soul brand in the depths of his soul.
In the next moment, Duan Ling Tian directly utilized his soul skill.
A mysterious illusory space instantly condensed into form before enveloping Bai Hao and followed him like a shadow.
All of this happened within the blink of an eye.
When faced with the illusory space that was constructed by a Spiritual Force at the second level of the Void Interpretation Stage, Bai Hao was trapped within it as expected.
In the world before Bai Hao’s eyes, Duan Ling Tian’s figure flashed out to arrive nearby before attacking him, whereas, he naturally wouldn’t stand idly by and accept death. He fiercely swung the spirit spear in his hand to instantly smash out towards Duan Ling Tian.
In reality outside the illusory space, Duan Ling Tian had already moved to the side before he even came close to Bai Hao, and he arrived behind Bai Hao in a short moment.
“What’s going on?” Meanwhile, a peculiar scene appeared before the eyes of the crowd of spectators in the surroundings of the Cage Battle Arena.
They saw that when Duan Ling Tian flashed to arrive behind Bai Hao, not only did Bai Hao not avoid, he didn’t even turn around, and he instead raised the grade three spirit spear in his hand before fiercely smashing out towards the air before him.
“Has Bai Hao gone mad?” Many people were dumbstruck.
Right at this moment, with a raise of his hand, Duan Ling Tian who had moved to arrive behind Bai Hao had slapped out with his palm to hit directly onto Bai Hao’s back, directly heavily injuring and blasting Bai Hao flying.
“Pu!” Bai Hai’s figure shook as he spat a mouthful of blood. His figure was like an arrow that left the bow before stopping in midair in a slightly embarrassing state, and his eyes were filled with rage as he shouted coldly. “Who attacked me from behind?!”
But he was quickly stunned.
Because when he turned around, he noticed that the person who heavily injured him was actually Duan Ling Tian.
“How can this be possible?!” Bai Hao had a dumbstruck expression and didn’t dare believe that all this was real.
Duan Ling Tian was clearly fighting with him head on earlier, whereas, it was precisely because he was fighting Duan Ling Tian head on that he didn’t pay attention to his back, causing him to be struck with a sneak attack.
But after he suffered a strike from the sneak attack and was blasted flying, he noticed that the Duan Ling Tian he was fighting with had vanished, and another Duan Ling Tian had appeared.
Moreover, this Duan Ling Tian that appeared was the person that launched a sneak attack on him.
He could be 100% sure that it was absolutely impossible for the Duan Ling Tian that was fighting him to instantly move around and arrive behind him before launching an attack from behind.
At this moment, if it wasn’t for only a single Duan Ling Tian remaining at the scene, he would feel that Duan Ling Tian had a twin brother.
“What happened just now?” The surroundings of the Cage Battle Arena were in an uproar.
The scene that occurred earlier caused them to be filled with bewilderment.
Originally, when they saw Duan Ling Tian charge towards Bai Hao, they thought that both of them would fight head on…
But in the blink of an eye, Duan Ling Tian instead moved to arrive behind Bai Hao, and they’d seen all of this clearly.
Yet at this moment, a strange scene appeared.
Bai Hao actually abandoned Duan Ling Tian and attacked the air as if the air was his opponent.
At that instant, they even felt that Bai Hao might have gone mad!
Subsequently, they saw Bai Hao being heavily injured by Duan Ling Tian’s palm strike in a completely unguarded state before being blasted flying and directly losing.
Of course, there was a reason they felt Bai Hao had lost.
So long as it was someone with a discerning gaze, they would be able to discern that it was impossible for Bai Hao to continue battling Duan Ling Tian with his current condition.
“They wouldn’t have discussed and agreed to put on a show, right?”
“Impossible! Bai Hao is the Young Prince of our Darkhan Dynasty’s Imperial Family, how could he possibly act recklessly in an occasion like this?”
“If they aren’t putting on a show, then can you explain what happened earlier?”
The entire Cage Battle Arena was in an uproar, and they were shocked by the strange scene that occurred earlier.
Of course, there was no lack of Inscription Masters at the Void Interpretation Stage present, and every time they watched the battled, they would unconsciously stretch out their Spiritual Force.
Earlier, the instant that Bai Hao attacked the air, they obviously sensed a material Spiritual Force envelop Bai Hao.
Right when they wanted to investigate that Spiritual Force, Bai Hao was already heavily injured and blasted flying by Duan Ling Tian, whereas, that Spiritual Force vanished along with this.
“Elder Liu, what technique is that?”
“I don’t know… It seems to be a technique executed by Spiritual Force! Not only that, that Spiritual Force wasn’t weak, and it was Duan Ling Tian’s Spiritual Force.”
“That Spiritual Force is probably at the second level of the Void Interpretation Stage… I truly never imagined that a mere ninth level Void Initiation Stage martial artist like Duan Ling Tian actually possess such a formidable Spiritual Force.”
“Perhaps he obtained some sort of fortuitous encounter… But this is only second in importance. The most important is the technique he utilized earlier.”
“Elder Kong, amongst us Inscription Masters, your Spiritual Force is the strongest. Did you notice any clues?”
On the nine first-class spectating areas, many Inscription Masters that were familiar with each other had started to privately discuss animatedly via voice transmission.
