Chapter 712: Fated Battle
Translator: KurazyTolanzuraytor Editor: Jay
“Mmm.” Feng Wu Dao nodded, and with a raise of his hand, a Spatial Ring shot at Elder Kong. “Help me place of bet on Ling Tian with the 100,000 Origin Stones in here.”
“100,000 low grade Origin Stones?” The corners of Elder Kong’s mouth twitched slightly as he received the Spatial Ring, and he felt slightly speechless.
Meanwhile, he really wanted to directly ask a single question: “Didn’t you say I was playing around?”
“Father… You’re placing so many Origin Stones, aren’t you afraid Big Brother Ling Tian will lose?” Feng Tian Wu was shocked by Feng Wu Dao’s extravagance.
“If that kid dares to lose, then I won’t marry my treasured daughter to him,” said Feng Wu Dao indifferently.
“Father… What’re you talking about?!” Feng Tian Wu’s beautiful face blushed, and she lowered her head as she spoke in embarrassment.
Duan Ling Tian naturally didn’t know about the situation on the first-class spectating area that belonged to the Feng Clan, nor did he know that Feng Wu Dao had placed 100,000 low grade Origin Stones on him in the battle between him and Zi Shang.
If he knew, Duan Ling Tian would surely feel even more pressure.
“Third place in the Dynasty Martial Competition today is obtained by Bai Hao… He has acquired the reward of 20,000 low grade Origin Stones.” Meanwhile, one of the old men in the sky above the Cage Battle Arena that were in charge of presiding over the martial competition had passed a Spatial Ring to Bai Hao before announcing.
After Bai Hao left, Zi Shang flashed out to arrive in the sky above the Cage Battle Arena after a short moment, and he stood in confrontation with Duan Ling Tian.
“Duan Ling Tian, do you need to rest?” Zi Shang glanced coldly and indifferently at Duan Ling Tian as a wisp of disdain arose in the corners of his mouth. “So as to avoid that you’ll say I won unfairly after I defeat you.”
“Defeat me?” Duan Ling Tian said indifferently, “Zi Shang, looks like you’re just like before, your full of confidence towards yourself… I remember that during the battle on the Seven Star Sword Sect’s Dubhe Peak all those years ago, you seemed to be confident like this, but the outcome was that not only did you lose, you suffered a crushing defeat!”
“Hmph! It’s impossible for the miracle that happened that day to repeat itself.” Zi Shang’s face sank when he heard Duan Ling Tian mention the past that he couldn’t bear to think of, and he grunted coldly.
“That might not be the case.” Duan Ling Tian continued.
Even though he was already ready to risk everything and intended to directly utilize the soul skill, Thousand Illusions, against Zi Shang, when he thought of the strange flame brand that appeared between Zi Shang’s brows and caused Zi Shang’s strength to suddenly rise explosively… Needless to say, Duan Ling Tian was still slightly worried in his heart, worried that at the same time that Zi Shang’s strength improved, Zi Shang’s Spiritual Force would rise along with it.
If Zi Shang’s Spiritual Force could rise along with it as well, then he would have no confidence in winning, unless a miracle occurred.
It could be said that he was gambling in this battle.
He was gambling that Zi Shang’s Spiritual Force would rise along with Zi Shang’s strength.
“You’ll know soon enough.” Zi Shang’s gaze was slightly cold as the origin energy on his body raged and leaped about before seeming to transform into a ball of white flames that enveloped him within it, and he didn’t have any attention of withdrawing his zither.
“Looks like you intend to directly execute your secret technique?” Duan Ling Tian’s eyes narrowed slightly.
“You’re smart… But unfortunately, you’ll lose for sure today! I’ll let you know that going against me will be an eternal nightmare for you!” Zi Shang’s words were extremely arrogant, and the white clothes on his body fluttered without wind as he prepared to attack at any moment.
Meanwhile, a worker of the Cage Battle Arena made an appearance on the first-class spectating area that belonged to the Darkhan Dynasty’s Imperial Family, and the worker bowed respectfully and reverently to the Emperor.
“What is it?” The Emperor frowned.
“Your Majesty, the Feng Clan’s Lord Wu Dao has placed a bet of 100,000 low grade Origin Stone on this final battle.” The worker took a deep breath and spoke slowly.
“100,000 low grade Origin Stones?” Instantly, everyone sitting nearby the Emperor including the Emperor himself was shocked.
“Yes.” The worker nodded.
“Who did he bet on?” The black clothed old man asked with a frown.
“Duan Ling Tian,” said the worker once more.
“Looks like he’s extremely confident of Duan Ling Tian… But unfortunately, he’s probably going to be disappointed.” The black clothed old man laughed coldly.
“Imperial Uncle, you seem to be extremely confident of Zi Shang? This Duan Ling Tian innately possesses a secret technique to rely on…” said the Emperor.
He was slightly bewildered by the old man’s confidence of Zi Shang.
Even though he felt Zi Shang’s chances of winning were greater as well, he didn’t have such a great certainty like the old man.
“Zi Shang just told me that he isn’t afraid of Duan Ling Tian’s secret technique,” said the old man.
“So that’s how it is.” The Emperor nodded with understanding, and then he revealed a smile. “In other words, this battle of Zi Shang’s is practically certain… Looks like Feng Wu Dao is going to bleed this time.”
At this moment, the gazes of all the spectators in the surroundings of the Cage Battle Arena had descended in unison onto Duan Ling Tian and Zi Shang, who stood in confrontation in the sky above the Cage Battle Arena.
Most people waited with bated breaths for the final battle between Duan Ling Tian and Zi Shang.
They knew that the battle between Duan Ling Tian and Zi Shang would decide the person that took the first in the Dynasty Martial Competition today.
“A battle of two young geniuses that possess secret techniques… This battle will surely be extremely interesting!”
“Who do all of you think has the greater chance of winning?”
“I think that Zi Shang’s chances are slightly better… After all, when Zi Shang attacks, his strength is comparable to a Void Interpretation Stage expert!”
“I think it’s more like that Duan Ling Tian will win, as his secret technique is extremely strange and impossible to guard against.”
Most people felt that Zi Shang’s chances of winning were greater, and a few felt that Duan Ling Tian’s chances were greater.
In the sky above the Cage Battle Arena, after a few years, two rivals had encountered each other once more and stood on the stage of battle.
The last time, Duan Ling Tian had used his soul skill, Thousand Illusions, to completely crush Zi Shang and cause Zi Shang to flee.
What would the outcome be today?
At this moment, not to mention the onlookers, even Duan Ling Tian himself didn’t dare be sure what the outcome would be.
“Hmm?” Suddenly, Duan Ling Tian noticed that a small black dot had appeared out of thin air between Zi Shang’s brows, and the small black dot was ceaselessly growing bigger.
“Duan Ling Tian, I know that you’re capable of relying on your Spiritual Force to execute an illusory realm soul skill. Besides that, your Spiritual Force has even attained the second level of the Void Interpretation Stage… Unfortunately for you, after my secret technique is executes, my Spiritual Force will far surpass yours, and your soul skill will be utterly useless!” Suddenly, Zi Shang’s arrogant voice transmission sounded out by Duan Ling Tian’s ears.
Duan Ling Tian’s expression instantly went grim when he heard this voice transmission.
Zi Shang actually knows that I’m capable of executing a soul skill?
Moreover, he even knows the level of my Spiritual Force?
How can this be possible?
Not to mention Zi Shang might not be an Inscription Master, even if Zi Shang was an inscription Master and was capable of noticing his Spiritual Force, it would be impossible for Zi Shang to know that he used a soul skill to defeat Bai Hao.
Moreover, Zi Shang’s words seemed as if he even knew the specific use of his soul skill.
At this moment, Duan Ling Tian felt a chill run down his spine, and he had the feeling as if he was completely exposed before Zi Shang.
This feeling caused him to feel extremely uncomfortable.
“You. How do you know this?” Duan Ling Tian took a deep breath and asked in a low voice.
“I don’t have the obligation to tell you… You, Duan Ling Tian, are bound to be trampled beneath my feet today!” Zi Shang replied indifferently, and as he finished speaking, his tone became even more arrogant, whereas, the small black dot between Zi Shang’s brows was still ceaselessly enlarging, and it have already possessed the outline of the flame brand.
“Your secret technique probably requires some time to be executed, right?” Duan Ling Tian smiled coldly as his figure flashed out like a bolt of lightning that shot straight towards Zi Shang without daring to hesitate in the slightest.
He wanted to heavily injure and defeat Zi Shang in one go before the flame brand between Zi Shang’s brows appeared completely!
As he flashed out, two dim light started to flicker within the depths of Duan Ling Tian’s eyes.
Instantly, Duan Ling Tian’s vast Spiritual Force once again constructed an illusory space that swept towards Zi Shang and enveloped Zi Shang whose flame brand between his brows hadn’t completely appeared.
When he saw Zi Shang being enveloped by the illusory space and the illusory space showing no signs of collapsing, Duan Ling Tian heaved a sigh of relief.
“Looks like there’s still time.” Duan Ling Tian’s gaze went slightly cold as abruptly flashed out.
In the blink of an eye, Duan Ling Tian had arrived by Zi Shang’s side. His gaze went cold as he punched out explosively, and his Origin Energy emitted an explosive bang as it fiercely smashed towards Zi Shang’s head.
If this punch were to hit its target, then Zi Shang would at least be heavily injured if he escaped death!
At this moment, Duan Ling Tian didn’t notice that practically the instant he moved, the black dot between Zi Shang’s brows had instantly transformed into a flame brand.
When Duan Ling Tian flashed to arrive by Zi Shang’s side and the fist he swung out was extremely close to Zi Shang’s head.
Zi Shang moved.
Instantly, Zi Shang vanished on the spot, and when he appeared once more, he was already over 10 meters away, thus this punch of Duan Ling Tian’s naturally missed.
“Shit!” Practically at the exact same instant, Duan Ling Tian’s expression went grim.
Because he noticed that at the same time Zi Shang vanished before his punch, the illusory space created by his soul skill had actually collapsed.
When gaze descended onto Zi Shang once again, he instead noticed that the black colored flame brand between Zi Shang’s brows had already appeared.
At this moment, Zi Shang’s eyes were obviously slightly dim, and it seemed as if he was a human puppet that had lost its souls.
“Zi Shang wouldn’t be possessed by a ghost, right?” Duan Ling Tian frowned.
At the same time, Duan Ling Tian noticed that the Spatial Ring on his hand that was trembling slightly had actually started trembling more intensely at this moment.
Obviously, the Devilseal Tablet was rising in revolt once more, and it was as if it had taken a stimulant.
Duan Ling Tian took a deep breath and didn’t hesitate to sweep out with his Spiritual Force with the intention of detecting Zi Shang’s strength.
Unfortunately, his Spiritual Force hadn’t even approached Zi Shang before it seemed as if it collided with cotton before vanishing like a stone that sunk into the ocean.
“Why is it like this?” Duan Ling Tian’s pupils constricted, and his face darkened.
Unfortunately, based on the current circumstances, he didn’t have time to think so much because Zi Shang had already attacked.
Zi Shang flashed directly towards Duan Ling Tian with a speed so swift that it caused Duan Ling Tian to be slightly unable to react to it.
When Duan Ling Tian finally reacted, Zi Shang was already before him.
With a raise of his hand, Zi Shang’s bare fist swept out and brought about a wave of deafening explosions as it smashed towards Duan Ling Tian.
Sword Drawing Arts!
At this moment, Duan Ling Tian only had the time to raise his sword to block Zi Shang’s fist.
The fist smashed onto Duan Ling Tian’s spirit sword, and it directly shocked the Origin Energy on the spirit sword to dispersal and caused it to start trembling intensely.
It wasn’t just that, even the palm of Duan Ling Tian’s hand that held the sword split open, causing fresh blood to drip down.
