Chapter 741: Successive Shock
Translator: KurazyTolanzuraytor Editor: Jay
“Little Tian, you absolutely can’t forgive them… Otherwise, once they notify the Azure Forest Tri-Sect that they saw a Seven Star Sword Sect disciple like you, the Azure Forest Tri-Sect will absolutely not let the matter go!” Nie Rong was the first to react, and he spoke out to Duan Ling Tian.
Duan Ling Tian hadn’t spoke yet when the expressions of the two old women who knelt in midair froze, and then they looked at Nie Rong with gazes filled with shame and resentment.
Shouldn’t you find a better excuse if you want us dead?
They thought that Nie Rong surely knew of the matter of Duan Ling Tian annihilating the Azure Forest Tri-Sect, and Nie Rong used the Azure Forest Tri-Sect now purely as an excuse to kill them as he wanted to take revenge for his wife.
“There’re also these Flying Rainbow Sect disciples. Since they’ve recognized you as a disciple of the Seven Star Sword Sect now, they can’t be left alive as well,” said Nie Yuan to Duan Ling Tian with a serious expression.
Earlier, the change in expression of the crowd of Flying Rainbow Sect disciples allowed him to realize that Duan Ling Tian turned out to be able to be considered to be a famous person in the Azure Forest Imperial Kingdom while Duan Ling Tian was at the Seven Star Sword Sect.
As soon as Nie Yuan finished speaking.
The expressions of the crowd of Flying Rainbow Sect disciples in the Martial Practice Grounds went pale. If Duan Ling Tian really wanted to kill them, then they would really have no way of resisting, nor could they dream of fleeing.
“I’m willing to make a vow under the Nine-Nine Heavenly Tribulation that I’ll absolutely not notify the Azure Forest Tri-Sect and sell Duan Ling Tian out.”
“I’m willing as well!”
The numerous Flying Rainbow Sect disciples were completely anxious, and they didn’t have the mood to cast flirtatious gazes at Duan Ling Tian any longer.
“Brother Rong, Yuan… Could it be that both of you don’t know the Azure Forest Tri-Sect has already been annihilated by Little Tian?” Meng Ping’s face was already filled with bewilderment When Nie Rong spoke out, and when she heard her son, Nie Yuan, saying similar words, she couldn’t help but ask.
The Azure Forest Tri-Sect was annihilated by Little Tian?
Meng Ping’s words instantly seemed to have transformed into two enormous hammers that fiercely smashed onto the chests of Nie Rong and Nie Yuan, causing their chests to rise and fall continuously like a bellows, and it was unable to calm down for a long time.
“Ping, you… You said the Azure Forest Tri-Sect was annihilated by Little Tian?” Nie Rong recovered from his shock and swallowed a mouthful of saliva with slight difficulty, and then his gaze that was filled with astonishment moved from Meng Ping to descend onto Duan Ling Tian.
At this moment, he suddenly felt that the violet clothed young man before him was so unfamiliar.
Unfamiliar to the point his heart palpitated!
Of course, the reason he had such a feeling was for no other reason than because of the strength that Duan Ling Tian possessed now.
Nie Yuan looked at Duan Ling Tian with a dumbstruck expression as well.
“Yes.” Meng Ping nodded, and then she said slowly, “Not long ago, Little Tian made a move and annihilated all the sixth level Void Initiation Stage higher-ups of the Azure Forest Tri-Sect, and then the he joined forces with the other two sixth level Void Initiation Stage experts of the Seven Star Sword Sect to slaughter all the remaining Void Initiation Stage experts of the Azure Forest Tri-Sect… Presently, the Azure Forest Tri-Sect doesn’t exist any longer and the revival of the Seven Star Sword Sect is near at hand.” Meng Ping finished speaking with a single breath.
Meng Ping’s words were like a stone that caused a thousand ripples on the surface of a lake, and it caused everyone besides Duan Ling Tian and the two old women to be stunned.
Everyone including Nie Rong and Nie Yuan felt that today was the day they’d suffered the most shock in their lifetimes, and it was simply shocking beyond compare.
“Little Tian, you… really…” Nie Yuan gasped and looked at Duan Ling Tian as if he wanted to confirm it.
“Yes.” Duan Ling Tian lightly smiled and nodded.
Nie Yuan had a complicated gaze, and he sighed after a long time. “No wonder you fearlessly trespassed into the Flying Rainbow Sect today. So it turns out that you’re utterly unafraid of these old fellows of the Flying Rainbow Sect.” As he finished speaking, Nie Yuan laughed bitterly, and at the same time, he glanced at the nearby old women that knelt before Duan Ling Tian.
Now he finally understood why the two old women would be so afraid of Duan Ling Tian.
All of this was because of Duan Ling Tian’s actions of annihilating the Azure Forest Tri-Sect not long ago, whereas, the crowd of Flying Rainbow Sect disciples on the Martial Practice Grounds and Nie Rong couldn’t help but gasp. For a time, the entire Martial Practice Grounds was filled with the sound of heavy breathing.
The crowd of Flying Rainbow Sect disciples on the Martial Practice Grounds heaved a sigh of relief when they heard the Azure Forest Tri-Sect didn’t exist any longer.
After all, since the Azure Forest Tri-Sect has ceased to exist, they weren’t worried that Duan Ling Tian would kill them to keep them quiet.
“Duan Ling Tian is capable of killing experts at the sixth level of the Void Initiation Stage? Doesn’t that mean that his strength is at the seventh level of the Void Initiation Stage or above?”
“A seventh level Void Initiation Stage expert below the age of 30… Heavens! Even if it’s the Darkhan Dynasty, there might not be such a heaven defying young expert, right?”
“I truly never imagined that such a great figure has actually appeared in our Flying Rainbow Sect.”
The crowd of Flying Rainbow Sect disciples that weren’t afraid any longer looked at Duan Ling Tian with even more burning gazes, and many even continued casting flirtatious gazes at Duan Ling Tian.
“Lord Duan Ling Tian, spare our lives!” Meanwhile, the azure clothed old woman and blue clothed old woman that knelt before Duan Ling Tian continued to kowtow and beg for mercy, and their voices were filled with terror that came from the heart.
Duan Ling Tian glanced indifferently at the two old women, and then his gaze moved onto Meng Ping as he lightly smiled and said, “Grandma Meng, how should we deal with them? So long as you say the word, I can make them completely vanish from this world right away, and they won’t leave a single trace behind.”
Duan Ling Tian’s words were extremely indifferent, and it was as if killing these two old women was utterly not the slightest bit difficult to him.
In actuality, it was indeed without the slightest bit of difficulty.
“Sect Leader, I won’t dare go against you in the future, please spare us!”
“Sect Leader, save us!”
The two old women hurriedly turned to kneel before Meng Ping when they heard Duan Ling Tian’s words, and tears flowed down their aged faces.
In their eyes, Meng Ping was currently their life saving straw.
The two old women were instantly anxious when they saw Meng Ping standing there with a heavy expression, yet remaining silent, and they hurriedly pinched open their fingers before a drop of blood flew out of the tip of each of their fingers and shot into the sky.
In the next moment, the two old women hurriedly made a vow.
The vow they made was none other than one that said they were willing to be blasted to death by the Nine-Nine Heavenly Tribulation if they dared go against the Sect Leader, Meng Ping, in the future.
A flowing light flashed within Meng Ping’s eyes when she saw the two old women making such a heavy vow, and then she said slowly, “Both of you can live, but you must go to the forbidden area! Unless the sect encounters a calamity, otherwise, both of you aren’t allowed to take a step out of the forbidden area for your entire lives.”
“Thank you, Sect Leader.” The two Supreme Elders knew that they’d saved their lives when they heard Meng Ping, and they thanked her repeatedly.
Living was more important than anything to them.
In next to no time, they left to head towards the forbidden area.
Duan Ling Tian, Nie Rong, and Nie Yuan had instead soared up into the sky with Meng Ping, and they quickly arrived at a higher point on Flying Rainbow Mountain before descending into a vast pavilion.
Under Meng Ping’s lead, they sat down before a pavilion, and then Nie Yuan couldn’t help but look at Duan Ling Tian and give Duan Ling Tian a big thumbs-up. “Little Tian, Uncle Nie really never imagined that you’ll actually be able to obtain such great achievements after you left the Crimson Sky Kingdom.”
“What? Uncle Nie, do you look down on me so much?” Duan Ling Tian asked while laughing.
Nie Yuan couldn’t help but be stunned when he heard this, and then he spoke with slight embarrassment. “It’s not that, it’s just that I feel your achievements are truly astonishing… In the past, not even in my dreams had I imagined that a person from our Crimson Sky Kingdom could ascend to the height that you’ve ascended.”
“Hmph! How can Little Tian be compared to ordinary people?” Nie Rong glared at Nie Yuan as he grunted.
Meanwhile, Meng Ping had made tea for the three of them, and she walked over. “Little Tian’s had already become famous in the entire Azure Forest Imperial Kingdom since a few years ago. But when I found out that Little Tian was from the Crimson Sky Kingdom and had an extremely intimate relationship with Yuan, the Seven Star Sword Sect has already been annihilated by the Azure Forest Tri-Sect…”
When she spoke up to here, Meng Ping stopped and directly gave a brief summary before continuing. “I was deeply afraid that the Azure Forest Tri-Sect would involve the Crimson Sky Kingdom because of Little Tian, and in extension, involve the Divine Might Marquis Estate… So I didn’t mention anything about Little Tian’s deeds in the Azure Forest Imperial Kingdom to Yuan.”
“Little Tian, you don’t blame me, right?” Meng Ping looking lovingly at Duan Ling Tian.
“Grandma Meng, you’re joking. You had the whole situation in mind, what do I have to blame you for?” Duan Ling Tian shook his head.
“Little Tian, you’re already an existence at the seventh level of the Void Initiation Stage or above now… It seems to have been the Darkhan Dynasty’s Martial Competition not long ago, whereas, the young geniuses that advanced from it will obtain the qualifications to participate in the Martial Competition of the Ten Dynasties! Have you obtained the qualifications to participate in the Martial Competition of the Ten Dynasties?” Suddenly, Meng Ping had a flash of realization, and she looked curiously at Duan Ling Tian with eyes that were filled with anticipation.
For a time, Nie Rong and Nie Yuan came to a suddenly understanding, and only now did they realized that Duan Ling Tian’s cultivation had already exceeded their imagination long ago. It was even possible that Duan Ling Tian had advanced from the Empire’s Young Genius Competition to obtain the qualifications to participate in the Dynasty Martial Competition.
As for if Duan Ling Tian advanced in the Dynasty Martial Competition, it was something they didn’t dare be completely certain of.
After all, the Dynasty Martial Competition was the stage where the young geniuses of the Darkhan Dynasty and the various Empires under it competed, and there surely existed many young martial artists with extraordinary natural talent amongst them.
Coupled with Duan Ling Tian being inferior to all of those young geniuses in terms of age, they were afraid that even if Duan Ling Tian possessed a cultivation at the seventh level of the Void Initiation Stage, Duan Ling Tian might not be able to advance from the Dynasty Martial Competition and obtain the qualification to participate in the Martial Competition of the Ten Dynasties.
“Yes.” Duan Ling Tian nodded when faced with Meng Ping’s question. “I’ll be going to the Darkhan Dynasty’s Imperial Palace to gather with the other nine young geniuses in a few months, and then we’ll head to the northern desert to participate in the Martial Competition of the Ten Dynasties!”
Duan Ling Tian’s words had undoubtedly indicated that he’d indeed passed through the Dynasty Martial Competition.
For a time, the family of three that sat before Duan Ling Tian were petrified, and they only recovered from their shock after a long time.
“If his Majesty finds out about this, he’ll surely be overjoyed! A member of our Crimson Sky Kingdom has actually obtained the qualification to participate in the Martial Competition of the Ten Dynasties…” Nie Yuan was excited to the point his face flushed red, and he was unable to restrain his emotions.
The Martial Competition of the Ten Dynasties was a competition amongst the group of top young geniuses in the various Dynasties.
Even though Meng Ping and Nie Rong didn’t say anything, the gazes they looked at Duan Ling Tian were still filled with shock.
“Grandpa Nie, Grandma Meng, Uncle Nie… I still have other matters to attend to, so I won’t disturb the reunion of your family.” Duan Ling Tian bid his farewells to the three of them before standing up with the intention of leaving.
