Chapter 728: The Terrified Jia Hong
Translator: KurazyTolanzuraytor Editor: Jay
Duan Ling Tian’s expression finally sank.
But Jia Hong instead seemed as if he didn’t notice. “So long as you take me as your master and so long as you’re willing, I can even allow you to become the new Sect Leader of the Demonic Lotusblade Sect… Otherwise, you can be an Enforcement Elder that reigns supreme over the Sect Leader, and you’ll only be below me. How about it?”
“Supreme Elder, he killed Vice Sect Leader Lu earlier, he’s an enemy of our Demonic Lotusblade Sect!” Jia Hong’s words caused a Guardian Elder of the Demonic Lotusblade Sect to become anxious, and he looked angrily at Jia Hong.
But in the next moment, the countenance of this Guardian Elder instantly turned extremely pale as his hands grasped tightly onto his throat and fresh blood sprayed out from his throat to taint his hands red.
“W… Why?” The Guardian Elder’s gaze seemed distant, and he looked at Jia Hong with an unwilling expression at the moment before his death before losing all signs of life and plunging down to the ground.
The corpse emitted an enormous bang when is hit the ground.
For a time, there was a corpse laying at the exact center of the gorge.
“How swift!” Duan Ling Tian’s brows raised as he revealed slight fear from his eyes.
He was actually unable to see Jia Hong attack in the slightest, and he only head an extremely slight and brief sound of the wind, and at the instant when the howl of the wind vanished, the Demonic Lotusblade Sect Guardian Elder was already killed.
“Is there anyone else that wants to question my words?” Jia Hong’s piercingly cold gaze flashed past Long Wei and the others.
Instantly, Long Wei and the others went silent.
Even though there were many people in the Demonic Lotusblade Sect, yet not a single person dared speak at this moment.
They were able to discern that the Supreme Elder had taken a fancy towards Duan Ling Tian’s monstrous and peerless natural talent, and he wanted to take Duan Ling Tian as his disciple and inheritor of his mantel.
“Hmph!” Duan Ling Tian grunted coldly with disdain when he saw Jia Hong look over once more. “Old fellow, if I want to suppress all of these people, it’s extremely easy with my strength. Why would I need to borrow your might?”
Jia Hong didn’t get angry when facing Duan Ling Tian’s disdain, and he nodded instead. “You’re right. But, you’ve forgotten something… If you don’t agree to be my disciple today, then you’re dead! You won’t have the chance to deal with them or even annihilate my Demonic Lotusblade Sect.” When he spoke up to here, the smile on Jia Hong’s face vanished, and it was covered in a layer of ice instead. “I’ll give you two choices… Either kneel down and become my disciple, or die!”
Jia Hong’s voice was like a resounding thunderclap that suddenly exploded out in the sky of the gorge, and it caused all the Demonic Lotusblade Sect disciples present to be unable to help but feel a chill run down their spines.
They knew that the Supreme Elder was enraged.
The eyes of Long Wei, Xue Rui, and the other higher-ups of the Demonic Lotusblade Sect flickered with bright lights, as they hoped in their hearts that Duan Ling Tian wouldn’t submit. If Duan Ling Tian submitted, then it would also mean that they would have this kid reigning supreme over them in the future.
This was something they weren’t willing to accept.
Of course, if Duan Ling Tian really submitted, then even if they weren’t willing, they had no other choice.
The true master of the Demonic Lotusblade Sect now was the Supreme Elder that had just risen to power in the sect, and it wasn’t them.
Duan Ling Tian didn’t have any reaction when faced with Jia Hong’s threats, yet Qin Xiang and Mo Yu had already gone pale.
At this moment, the vast and overbearing aura that stretched out from Jia Hong’s body swept over and caused them to feel extremely suffocated.
“Martial Aunt Qin Xiang, Senior Brother really has the confidence to deal with this old freak?” Mo Yu felt slightly terrified when facing Jia Hong, and he couldn’t help but send a voice transmission to ask Qin Xiang.
“He ought to…” Qin Xiang was slightly unsure.
The Roc circled around in the sky above Duan Ling Tian, and his wings that were like clouds that covered the sky had spread out to cause surging waves of air and sharp howls of the wind.
His pair of sharp eyes were staring fixedly at Jia Hong, and so long as Jia Hong dared attack Duan Ling Tian, he wouldn’t hesitate in the slightest to pounce down.
Even though he knew that he was far from being Jia Hong’s match, yet he would lay down his life to protect Duan Ling Tian.
He was willing to use his corpse to pave a path towards survival for Duan Ling Tian!
“I’m truly sorry.” Duan Ling Tian’s expression remained unchanged when facing Jia Hong’s threats, and he had a carefree expression from the beginning until the end as if everything before him was utterly unrelated to him. “I don’t want to choose either of the choices you gave me.”
Don’t want to choose?
Duan Ling Tian’s words entered clearly into the ears of every single person present.
“Duan Ling Tian, our Supreme Elder thinks highly of you, and that’s why he wants to take you as his disciple… Don’t be ungrateful!” Instantly, many members of the Demonic Lotusblade Sect in the surroundings snapped at Duan Ling Tian.
At the same time that Long Wei, Xue Rui, and the Demonic Lotusblade Sect elders snapped at Duan Ling Tian, they couldn’t help but feel fortunate in their hearts, fortunate that Duan Ling Tian didn’t agree.
Unknowingly, a wisp of a smile had appeared on the corners of their mouths as they were able to sense the rage the rose ceaselessly on the Supreme Elder.
Origin Energy gradually arose in Jia Hong who sat cross-legged on the Lotus Seat not too far away from Duan Ling Tian, and then it started to become raging and leaping about.
At the same time, the energy of heaven and earth roiled in the sky above him as numerous lifelike ancient horned dragon silhouettes condensed into form and coiled down from above.
10 ancient horned dragon silhouettes.
20 ancient horned dragon silhouettes.
30 ancient horned dragon silhouettes.
The number of ancient horned dragon silhouettes was still rising unceasingly.
“Third level of the Void Interpretation Stage… Fourth level… Fifth level… It’s still increasing…” Qin Xiang’s expression became more and unsightly.
The body of Mo Yu who stood at the side shivered as his pupils constricted, and there was only a single thought that remained in his heart. “We’re finished, we’re finished…”
Even though he was mentally prepared since long ago, never have he imagined that the strength of the thousand year old freak from Demonic Lotusblade Sect would actually be so terrifying.
Finally, the ancient horned dragon silhouettes in the sky above Jia Yong didn’t increase anymore.
Meanwhile, 100 lifelike ancient horned dragon silhouettes were clearly visible before the eyes of every single person present, and it gave them a strong visual impact.
“The strength of 100 ancient horned dragons… The seventh level of the Void Interpretation Stage!” Long Wei couldn’t help but gasp.
“No wonder Supreme Elder said he can lead our Demonic Lotusblade Sect to obtain a position in the Darkhan Dynasty… With Supreme Elder’s current strength, there are probably only a few people that are a match for him in the Darkhan Dynasty.” Xue Rui was extremely excited as his body trembled lights, and he’d slightly lost his composure.
At the same time, no matter if it was the group of Demonic Lotusblade Sect disciples standing in midair or the disciples standing within the gorge, all of them couldn’t help but seethe with excitement.
They were naturally extremely clear about what 100 ancient horned dragon silhouettes meant.
The seventh level of the Void Interpretation Stage!
Their Supreme Elder was actually a formidable existence at the seventh level of the Void Interpretation Stage!
Everyone was excited.
“Little fellow, I’ll ask you one last time… Are you really unwilling to take me as your master?” Jia Hong who had a 100 ancient horned dragon silhouettes above him stared at Duan Ling Tian with a gaze that was like a bolt of lightning, and he seemed as if he would directly make a move against Duan Ling Tian if anything wasn’t to his liking.
Duan Ling Tian’s expression still remained the same when facing Jia Hong who revealed a strength at the seventh level of the Void Interpretation Stage, and ridiculed. “Old fellow, did you think I’ll be afraid of you and even directly take you as my master just because you revealed at strength at the seventh level of the Void Interpretation Stage?”
“Since it’s like this, then you can go to hell!” Jia Hong’s patience was completely exhausted, and he couldn’t restrain himself any longer. He shouted out explosively before his sleeve flashed as he raised his hand, and a deafening howl of the wind exploded out.
In practically an instant, waves of terrifying gales swept out from the place Jia Hong stood, and it blew out in all directions to the point of causing some Demonic Lotusblade Sect disciples with low cultivations to move back in retreat.
Jia Hong pushed out his palm, and it seemed to be slow yet was extremely swift. In the blink of an eye, his palm was already extremely close to Duan Ling Tian’s chest, and so long as he continued forward, Duan Ling Tian would die for sure!
Right at this critical moment.
“AH!” A shrill cry appeared out of thin air, and it caused the smile that had suffused the faces of Long Wei and the other higher-ups of the Demonic Lotusblade Sect to instantly freeze.
Originally, they were already able to foresee the scene of Duan Ling Tian being killed.
But right at the instant Duan Ling Tian was about to die, they saw to their shock that at this moment, the arm of their Demonic Lotusblade Sect’s Supreme Elder, the Ancestor that had established the Demonic Lotusblade Sect more than a thousand years ago had used to attack Duan Ling Tian was severed, and his severed arm was thrown out by momentum to vanish into the distance in the blink of an eye, whereas, the place Duan Ling Tian stood at earlier was completely empty now.
At this moment, Duan Ling Tian had suddenly soared up into the sky, and there was a fiery red figure by his side.
This was a middle aged man with a cold and dignified expression, his sharp eyes seemed to look down upon the heavens and the earth, and he emitted a formidable sense of pressure as he stood there with his hands behind his back.
“Who’re you?” After Jia Hong stopped the blood that sprayed from the place his arm was severed, he had a rather pale countenance as he looked at the middle aged man in fiery red colored clothes and asked with slight terror.
Earlier, it was precisely this person that had severed his arm.
This person hasn’t utilized a spirit weapon when making a move against him, and the middle aged man had only used pure Origin Energy that was condensed into the form of a sword to easily severe his arm before he could react.
Even though the middle aged man attacked in a flash and the ancient horned dragon silhouettes in the sky couldn’t condense in time.
Jia Hong could be completely sure that the fiery red clothed middle aged man before him possessed a strength that far surpassed him!
Meanwhile, the gazes of everyone in the Demonic Lotusblade Sect descended onto the red clothed middle aged man.
They’d noticed this red clothed middle aged man since long ago as he’d always stood close behind Duan Ling Tian with another red clothed young woman and a grey clothed old man.
Originally, they though these people were survivors of the Seven Star Sword Sect as well.
But now, they realized that they were wrong, extremely wrong…
Would a survivor of the Seven Star Sword Sect possess the strength to severe the arm of their Demonic Lotusblade Sect’s Supreme Elder, a dignified seventh level Void Interpretation Stage expert?
If the Seven Star Sword Sect possessed such an expert, how could it have been annihilated by them?
“Senior, this is an enmity between us and the Seven Star Sword Sect, I hope that Senior doesn’t interfere… If Senior has any needs, our Demonic Lotusblade Sect will spend every effort, and I guarantee that Senior will be satisfied.” As the Sect Leader of the Demonic Lotusblade Sect, Long Wei was an astute person, and he clearly noticed the terror that suffused Jia Hong’s eyes when Jia Hong looked at the red clothed middle aged man.
So, he chose to make concessions in order to gain an advantage.
