“Senior Brother?” Mo Yu, who laid weakly on the back of the Roc with a pale expression, couldn’t help but be shocked when he heard this voice.
After the Roc heard Duan Ling Tian’s voice, he continued to soar into the sky, and he quickly saw Duan Ling Tian who stood on the enormous sword.
Besides Feng Tian Wu that he’d already become acquainted with, there was another unfamiliar middle aged man and old man by Duan Ling Tian’s side.
When he saw the middle aged man and old man, the Roc’s sharp eyes revealed a strand of dense fear.
Even though he was unable to see through the cultivations of these two people, as a demon beast, he subconsciously felt that these two people weren’t simple, and they were existences that he couldn’t afford to offend.
Along with the approach of the Roc, the enormous sword that lay across the sky expanded explosively once more, and it enlarged to be able to accommodate the Roc that was like a small mountain to land on it.
Under Duan Ling Tian’s gesturing, the Roc carried Qin Xiang and Mo Yu to descend onto the enormous sword.
After he descended onto the enormous sword, Mo Yu heaved a sigh of relief and felt that the terrifying aura that pressed onto his body had vanished without a trace in the blink of an eye.
Qin Xiang and Mo Yu arrived successively by Duan Ling Tian’s side, and they looked at Duan Ling Tian with bewildered expressions.
“This is Uncle Feng, Tian Wu’s father. This is Elder Kong, a senior of Tian Wu’s as well.” In next to no time, Duan Ling Tian lightly smiled as he introduced Feng Wu Dao and Elder Kong to Qin Xiang, Mo Yu, and Elder Peng and vice versa.
Both parties nodded and smiled at each other as a form of greeting.
“Peak Master Qin Xiang, where’s the Azure Forest Tri-Sect located?” Duan Ling Tian asked Qin Xiang.
The Azure Forest Tri-Sect was combined and formed from the Demonic Lotusblade Sect, the Origin Convergence Sect, and the Snow Moon Sect. He’d only gone to the Demonic Lotusblade Sect and didn’t know where the other two sects were located, nor did he know where the combined Azure Forest Tri-Sect was located.
“The Azure Forest Tri-Sect was originally located in three places, which were respectively the Demonic Lotusblade Sect, the Origin Convergence Sect, and the Snow Moon Sect… But because of Elder Peng’s frequent visits during these past few years, it forced everyone from the Azure Forest Tri-Sect to gather at the location of the Demonic Lotusblade Sect, the Demonic Lotusblade Gorge.” Qin Xiang spoke slowly.
“The Demonic Lotusblade Gorge?” Duan Ling Tian nodded.
He didn’t know where the Snow Moon Sect and Origin Convergence Sect were located previously, but he clearly remembered where the Demonic Lotusblade Sect was located.
“Uncle Feng, over there.” Duan Ling Tian notified Feng Wu Dao as he glanced at the east, and then Feng Wu Dao controlled the enormous sword to tear through the sky to head towards the location of the Demonic Lotusblade Sect.
The enormous sword traversed the sky with a speed so swift that it caused Qin Xiang and Mo Yu to be unable to help but go pale.
Even the eyes of Elder Peng, who stood at the side of the enormous sword, couldn’t help but be once again suffused with traces of fear that came from the bottom of his heart when his sharp eyes glanced unintentionally at Feng Wu Dao.
“Duan Ling Tian, who exactly is this Uncle Feng of yours?” Qin Xiang took a deep breath and couldn’t help but ask via voice transmission.
“Senior Brother.” Mo Yu looked at Duan Ling Tian as well as he asked the question in his heart via voice transmission, and it was a similar question as Qin Xiang.
“They’re experts from the Darkhan Dynasty.” Duan Ling Tian replied one by one via voice transmission.
Experts from the Darkhan Dynasty?
The pupils of Qin Xiang and Mo Yu couldn’t help but constrict instantly, and they nodded at the same time. If it was like this, then everything could be explained.
It was naturally impossible for an expert from the Darkhan Dynasty to be simple.
“Your cultivation…has broken through to the seventh level of the Void Initiation Stage?” After she calmed down the shock in her heart, Qin Xiang recalled the speed Duan Ling Tian revealed earlier, and she couldn’t refrain herself from asking.
“No.” Duan Ling Tian shook his head.
“No?” Qin Xiang was stunned, and then she frowned. “But the speed you revealed earlier has obviously surpassed Elder Peng… How can you not be a martial artist at the seventh level of the Void Initiation Stage?”
“I’m indeed not one.” Duan Ling Tian shook his head once more, and then he spoke unhurriedly. “My current cultivation isn’t at the seventh level of the Void Initiation Stage, but it’s instead at the ninth level of the Void Initiation Stage!”
Ninth level of the Void Initiation Stage?
Qin Xiang was completely stunned when she heard Duan Ling Tian.
Doesn’t this mean that this little fellow’s current strength has already left me far behind?
Even she was only barely able to break through to the sixth level of the Void Initiation Stage half a year ago.
At the same time, Qin Xian recalled the accomplishments Duan Ling Tian had achieved all along the way while he was in the Seven Star Sword Sect, and when she thought about Duan Ling Tian’s current strength, at the same time that she was extremely shocked, she couldn’t help but sigh.
The little fellow whose name had once shaken the Seven Star Sword Sect and was publicly acknowledged as the number one genius of the Seven Star Sword Sect since it was established had already stood at a height that was difficult for her to reach after a few years.
After all, besides the Void Interpretation Stage Founding Ancestor of the Seven Star Sword Sect, the number of existences that had broken through to the ninth level of the Void Initiation Stage in the history of the Seven Star Sword Sect could be counted on one’s fingers.
“I originally thought that I still had to wait another 10 years or so before you’ll possess the strength to annihilate the Azure Forest Tri-Sect… Yet never had I imagined that after a short few years, you already possess a strength that’s sufficient to take revenge for the Seven Star Sword Sect.” Qin Xiang looked at Duan Ling Tian with an extremely complicated gaze as she muttered.
In next to no time, Mo Yu found out about Duan Ling Tian’s current cultivation from Duan Ling Tian, and for a time, he similarly fell into endless shock like Qin Xiang, and was unable to recover from it.
In Mo Yu’s eyes, his former Master, the Seven Star Sword Sect’s Leader, Linghu Jin Hong, had a cultivation at the sixth level of the Void Initiation Stage, and he was already an existence that caused Mo Yu to look up to.
Yet now, this Senior Brother of his actually possessed a strength at the ninth level of the Void Initiation Stage, and Duan Ling Tian had even far surpassed the Master he respected the most.
For a time, he was both shocked and excited.
The enormous sword shot through the sky with a speed so swift that it was unimaginable for ordinary people.
It wasn’t long before a gorge that was like a demonic lotus appeared before the eyes of Duan Ling Tian and the others, and it grew closer and closer.
“Demonic Lotusblade Gorge… Demonic Lotusblade Sect…” Duan Ling Tian stood on the spacious and enormous sword as he looked down at the Demonic Lotusblade Gorge beneath his feet, and his eyes narrowed slightly.
He had a piece of memory in this place.
All those years ago, he’d followed the Seven Star Sword Sect’s Leader, Linghu Jin Hong, to arrive at this place that originally belonged to the Demonic Lotusblade Sect and participated in the Martial Competition between the five great sects of the Azure Forest Imperial Kingdom.
That time was also the first time he displayed extraordinary talent and became famous throughout the entire Azure Forest Imperial Kingdom.
He still remembered that the first time he saw Long Yun was at this place, whereas, it was precisely because he defeated Long Yun that he became famous.
“It’s here.” When the enormous sword arrived in the sky above the Demonic Lotusblade Gorge, Duan Ling Tian spoke out.
Instantly, Feng Wu Dao controlled the controlled the enormous sword to stop, and at the same time, it slowly descended. When it arrived at a low spot in the sky, the jade sword instantly vanished with a command in his heart, whereas, Duan Ling Tian’s group stood in the air before slowly descending towards the Demonic Lotusblade Gorge.
“Hmm?” When they approached closer and closer to the Demonic Lotusblade Gorge, Duan Ling Tian frowned.
At this moment, he felt a vast and overbearing aura sweeping out from the north of the Demonic Lotusblade Gorge, and it filled the entire Demonic Lotusblade Gorge.
“What happened over there?” Feng Tian Wu looked at the north of the Demonic Lotusblade Gorge with a surprised expression. At this moment, the sky was covered in a red glow, and it seemed as if it had become a crimson red world.
The vast and overbearing aura was precisely coming from there.
“Ling Tian, didn’t you say that the strongest martial artist in the Azure Forest Tri-Sect is only at the sixth level of the Void Initiation Stage?” Feng Wu Dao seemed to have noticed something, and he couldn’t help but ask Duan Ling Tian.
Duan Ling Tian obviously noticed something as well, and he couldn’t help but shake his head when he heard Feng Wu Dao’s question. “I don’t know what happened either… Let’s go over and take a look.”
Duan Ling Tian, Feng Wu Dao, Feng Tian Wu, and Elder Kong flew in the air by themselves, whereas, Qin Xiang and Mo Yu stood on the Roc’s back and were barely capable of following the speed of Duan Ling Tian and the others.
“Senior Brother…” Meanwhile, Mo Yu had completely recovered from his shock, his gaze flickered as he looked at Duan Ling Tian’s back, and his body even started to tremble with excitement.
At this moment, he felt the figure of this Senior Brother of his was so tall and mighty, to the point he could only look up at this Senior Brother of his.
At the same time, he felt extremely excited.
As far as he was concerned, with his Senior Brother’s current strength, the revenge of the sect would surely be accomplished.
“Master… Senior Brother will take revenge for you, and the various Peak Master and Elders today. If you can sense it in the netherworld, you can rest in peace.” Mo Yu silently thought in his heart.
After a short moment, Duan Ling Tian’s group arrived in the sky above the northern area of the Demonic Lotusblade Gorge, and they stood in the air as they looked down at the scene below.
“All the disciples of the Azure Forest Tri-Sect are gathered here?” Qin Xiang couldn’t refrain from speaking with surprise when she looked down at the dense crowd below her.
At this moment, a group of middle aged men and old men stood in the sky and floated at a low altitude in the air, and they surrounded an enormous rock that was like a small mountain.
The rock was completely crimson red, and besides emitting a scorching aura, it also emitted a vast and overbearing aura that struck fear in one’s heart.
“Lu Yuan, Xue Rui… and the former Demonic Lotusblade Sect’s Leader.” Duan Ling Tian looked at the group of middle aged men and old men that stood in the air while surrounding the crimson red rock, and his eyes flickered with cold lights. “All those other people as well… All of them were present when they annihilated my Seven Star Sword Sect, all of them are culprits!” Unknowingly, Duan Ling Tian’s eyes were tainted with a wisp of crimson red, his face was enveloped in a layer of killing intent, and the Origin Energy on his body had unconsciously started to leap about, whereas, the rage of Qin Xiang, Elder Peng, and Mo Yu weren’t any less than Duan Ling Tian at this moment.
Even though he was enraged, Duan Ling Tian’s Spiritual Force still descended to sweep through the group of higher ups of the Azure Forest Tri-Sect, and he quickly detected their cultivations. “Hmph! The strongest is only at the sixth level of the Void Initiation Stage… A group of useless fellows. A few years have passed yet they actually haven’t improved in the slightest.” Unknowingly, a wisp of disdain appeared on the corners of Duan Ling Tian’s mouth.
The strongest amongst them was only at the sixth level of the Void Initiation Stage. Merely he alone was sufficient to completely slaughter all the higher-ups of the Azure Forest Tri-Sect!
