Chapter 806: The First Person To Come Out
Translator: KurazyTolanzuraytor Editor: JayC
When they saw Sword 13 reveal a cultivation at the ninth level of the Void Transformation Stage, Ning Can and Feng Wei both revealed expressions of terror, and they seemed as if they were facing a dreadful monster.
“Sword 13, since you’re already a ninth level Void Transformation Stage expert, the two of us know that we aren’t a match for you… But the rules of the second round of the selection today were announced long ago, and it’s only for the sake of competing for the sake of ranking the young geniuses by the number tokens.” Ning Can took a deep breath and said calmly, “These rules were set by the Lord Fort Master. If you have any question, you can follow me to confirm it with the Fort Master.”
The Lord Fort Master Ning Can spoke of was the highest leader that dominated over the entire Skywolf Fort, the elusive Fort Master of Skywolf Fort.
After Ning Can brought up the Fort Master of Skywolf Fort, slight fear flashed past Sword 13’s eyes, and then he grunted coldly and didn’t say anything further.
Even though he wasn’t afraid of the two Vice Fort Masters of Skywolf Fort before him, but he had no choice but to slightly fear the Fort Master of Skywolf Fort.
The Fort Master of Skywolf Fort had made a name for himself since many years ago, and even if Sword 13’s cultivation had broken through to the ninth level of the Void Transformation Stage now, he felt that he wasn’t a match for the Skywolf Fort’s Master.
“Duan Ling Tian, let’s go!” Sword 13 paid no further attention to Feng Wei and Ning Can, and spoke to Duan Ling Tian.
Duan Ling Tian nodded, and at the same time that he followed Sword 13 to leave, he didn’t forget to put away the Devilseal Tablet while fiercely shooting a glare at the nearby Zi Shang.
When Feng Wei rushed over in time, Duan Ling Tian knew that it would be impossible for him to kill Zi Shang.
Even if he was unwilling, he had no other choice.
No matter what, this place was the Skywolf Fort and Feng Wei was its Vice Fort Master.
Moreover, the rules of the second round of the selection really didn’t indicate that the young geniuses could kill each other… So Feng Wei’s interference couldn’t be considered to be a breach of the rules.
“If I knew earlier that this would happen, then I wouldn’t have put the Devilseal Tablet away when I attacked the first time…” Duan Ling Tian felt a wave of regret envelop him when he recalled the scene from before.
Zi Shang had hastily called for help from Feng Wei when he attacked Zi Shang the first time, whereas because he was worried that Feng Wei would notice the Devilseal Tablet in his possession, he’d put it away at the first possible moment.
At that time, he urgently wanted to kill Zi Shang and temporarily forgot that there was still an incomplete soul that seemed to belong to a Martial Emperor Stage expert within Zi Shang’s body, and it allowed Zi Shang to be able to escape doom while under his soul skill, Thousand Illusions.
When he returned to his senses and realized that he’d made a mistake, and then took out the Devilseal Tablet once more with the intention of annihilating Zi Shang with the Devilseal Tablet, Feng Wei had already arrived and forced him back to save Zi Shang.
“A single mistake caused everything to go wrong.” Duan Ling Tian sighed. He originally had the chance to kill Zi Shang today, but because of a mistaken decision, Zi Shang was allowed to luckily escape doom.
Of course, Duan Ling Tian understood as well that since it had come to this, it was useless to continue thinking about this.
There was no medicine for regret in this world.
What he needed to do now was to not let the next opportunity slip by and strive to kill Zi Shang at the first possible moment!
He couldn’t feel at ease in his heart until Zi Shang was dead.
“All in all, my current strength is still too weak… If I possess a strength that surpasses the Skywolf Fort, then not to mention Feng Wei and Ning Can, I wouldn’t need to be afraid even if the Fort Master of Skywolf Fort personally made a move, and I’d be completely capable of killing Zi Shang right before their eyes!” Duan Ling Tian once again realized that his strength was still too weak.
Now he didn’t compare himself with the younger generation, but instead compared himself with the experts of the older generation like Feng Wei and Ning Can.
“Strength, I need formidable strength!” Duan Ling Tian shouted ceaselessly within his heart, whereas, the Origin Energy in his body seemed to have heard his soundless shouts, and it completely boiled and seemed to have transformed into numerous enraged dragons that flashed through the meridians within his body.
At the same time, the medicinal strength of the Rebirth Pill that was originally accumulated in the depths of his Dantian had fused into his Origin Energy a step further.
At this instant, Duan Ling Tian felt his entire body filled with strength, and he advanced another large step towards the third level of the Void Interpretation Stage and had even arrived at the bottleneck!
“So long as I charge through this bottleneck, I’ll be able to officially step into the third level of the Void Interpretation Stage!” Duan Ling Tian’s eyes flashed like two flickering dazzling stars.
Before he left the Illusory Crypt, Duan Ling Tian didn’t forget to glance coldly at Zi Shang.
One day, he would kill Zi Shang, and he’d use the Devilseal Tablet to annihilate the incomplete soul that was concealed within Zi Shang’s body.
He wasn’t the slightest bit afraid of Zi Shang, yet he was afraid of the incomplete soul concealed within Zi Shang’s body, and it was the greatest threat to him.
“Duan Ling Tian, I’ll make you die a graveless death!” Right at this moment, Zi Shang’s voice transmission that was filled with a bloody and ruthless feeling entered into Duan Ling Tian’s ears, and it seemed as if Zi Shang wished for nothing more than to tear him into pieces before burning his bones and scattering his ashes.
“We’ll see who dies first.” The corners of Duan Ling Tian’s mouth were suffused with a wisp of disdain as he replied indifferently to Zi Shang, and then he followed behind Sword 13 and Saber 5 to pass through the mist at the exit of the Illusory Crypt and returned to the combat arena at the outer fort of Skywolf Fort.
Duan Ling Tian noticed numerous burning gazes descending onto him when he left the exit, and these gazes contained admiration, disbelief…
Numerous feelings indicated the feelings in the hearts of the representatives of the various Dynasties in the sky above the combat arena.
“It’s actually him!”
“How could it possibly be him? He’s only 28 years old… A 28 year old was the first to exit the Illusory Crypt?”
“Even though I feel it’s unbelievable, yet the facts prove that he’s indeed the first person to come out… The number 1 token is most probably in his possession.”
“He probably used some special technique and took a shortcut… Otherwise, it’s impossible for him to come out of the Illusory Crypt so quickly.”
“A 28 year old would at most be at the first level of the Void Interpretation Stage, and it’s even possible that he hasn’t broken through to the Void Interpretation Stage.”
Besides the representatives of the Darkhan Dynasty and the Darming Dynasty, the representatives of the other eight Dynasties revealed doubtful expressions as they discussed it animatedly.
Obviously, all of them didn’t believe that Duan Ling Tian possessed the strength to be the first to traverse through the Illusory Crypt.
“Duan Ling Tian was actually the first to come out?!” The gaze of the Darkhan Dynasty’s Emperor lit up as he hurriedly sent a voice transmission to Duan Ling Tian. “Duan Ling Tian, congratulations on being the first to pass through the Illusory Crypt, did you obtain the number 1 token?”
Duan Ling Tian raised his head to glance at the Darkhan Dynasty’s Emperor when he heard this voice, and then he nodded indifferently.
“Haha… Good!” The Emperor laughed extremely brilliantly.
At the same time, the gaze he shot at the representatives of the other nine Dynasties changed, and it was filled with complacency and seemed to be saying. “So you’ve seen it, right? This is the young expert of our Darkhan Dynasty!”
Bai Nan Yin, Zi Shang’s master, glanced at Duan Ling Tian with a complicated gaze, and he couldn’t help but break out in cold sweat for Zi Shang in his heart.
He knew clearly of the conflict between his disciple, Zi Shang, and Duan Ling Tian, and it was a conflict that was irreconcilable until the death of one party.
“No wonder even Wei Yi lost at his hands… Duan Ling Tian is extraordinary indeed.” The representative of the Darming Dynasty, the expert from the Darming Dynasty’s Zhao Clan, Elder Qian, looked at Duan Ling Tian with a gaze that was filled with astonishment.
Duan Ling Tian wasn’t unfamiliar to him, and it was even to the extent that he’d heard of this young man that was capable of easily defeating their Zhao Clan’s strongest expert of the younger generation a few months ago while he was still in the Capital of the Darming Dynasty.
When he arrived at Skywolf Fort and saw this young man for the first time, he felt shock that came from the bottom of his heart.
Never had he imagined that this person was actually so young.
“I originally thought that the first person to pass through the Illusory Crypt would be his Majesty the Crown Prince… Yet I never expected it would be this Duan Ling Tian instead.” Elder Qian sighed in his heart.
Duan Ling Tian who became the center of attention after leaving the Illusory Crypt stood silently in the air with Sword 13 and Sword 5.
“You passed through the Illusory Crypt long ago and had obtained the number 1 token?” Sword 13 glanced at Duan Ling Tian and asked.
“Yes.” Duan Ling Tian nodded.
“So in this way… The reason you didn’t come out at the first possible moment was because you were waiting for Zi Shang? How long were you waiting for?” Saber 5’s pupils constructed as he asked with shock.
“I waited for around fifty or sixty breaths worth of time,” said Duan Ling Tian.
Fifty or sixty breaths?
Sword 13 and Saber 5 couldn’t help but glance at each other when they heard Duan Ling Tian, and they both saw astonishment in each other’s eyes.
Only a single thought remained in their hearts — Freak!
Duan Ling Tian is simply a freak!
“Junior Brother Sword… No matter what, this little fellow must be pulled into our Blade Sect!” Saber 5 looked at Sword 13 and spoke with a serious expression.
Even though he and Sword 13 weren’t on good terms and he was even unconvinced of Sword 13’s ability in many aspects, yet that was only a private matter.
Once it was related to the Blade Sect, then he would instead stand on the same side as Sword 13 and unite against outsiders.
“I understand.” Sword 13 nodded.
Duan Ling Tian naturally didn’t know of the voice transmission between Sword 13 and Saber 5 as he was currently holding a Wind Concept Fragment as he silently comprehended Wind Concept.
It wasn’t just that, he’d even closed his eyes and sat cross-legged in the sky to cultivate concentratedly.
Nine Dragons War Sovereign Technique, Sword Dragon Form!
The Origin Energy in Duan Ling Tian’s body became restless once more along with him starting to cultivate, and it circulated ceaselessly according to the mental cultivation method of the Sword Dragon Form before continuing to charge towards the bottleneck that lead to the third level of the Void Interpretation Stage.
“So long as I break through this bottleneck, I’ll be able to smoothly break through to the third level of the Void Interpretation Stage!” After he experienced the incident from before, Duan Ling Tian was filled with yearning towards formidable strength, and he urgently wanted to advance his cultivation with the fastest possible speed.
“Vice Fort Master Ning has come out!” At the same time, someone shouted out, and it caused the gazes of the representatives of the various Dynasties in the sky to turn towards the exit of the Illusory Crypt.
Even though these people were puzzled towards the reason why Feng Wei, Ning Can, Saber 5, and Sword 13 had entered the exit of the Illusory Crypt earlier, yet they didn’t know what had happened.
Although Zi Shang’s earlier shout for help from within was loud, almost 80% of it was filtered out by the Inscription Formation at the exit of the Illusory Crypt, causing it to become like the sound of a mosquito.
At that time, only Feng Wei, Ning Can, Sword 13, and Saber 5 were amongst the people outside that heard it clearly.
