Chapter 821: The Devilseal Tablet’s Deterrent Force
Translator: KurazyTolanzuraytor Editor: JayC
Obviously, Pei An who possessed an acute perception, faintly noticed the minute changes in the aura on Zi Shang’s body.
If Pei An knew that the incomplete soul that seemed to be belong to a Martial Emperor Stage expert was hiding within Zi Shang’s body, and the incomplete soul was temporarily possessing him, causing him to possess an increase in strength of four levels, then perhaps he wouldn’t be bewildered.
Along with the Origin Energy on Zi Shang’s body surged, the energy of the heavens and the earth roiled in the sky above him to finally converge into the phenomenon of the heavens and the earth.
“Eighty… Eighty ancient horned dragon silhouettes… Is this really the phenomenon of the heavens and the earth from Zi Shang only mobilizing his Origin Energy?” Many people cried out in astonishment as they looked at the eighth ancient horned dragon silhouettes in the sky above Zi Shang.
Condensing the silhouettes of 80 ancient horned dragons by drawing out the energy of the heavens and the earth solely by way of Origin Energy was the symbol of a sixth level Void Interpretation Stage martial artist!
“I truly never imagined that Zi Shang is actually a sixth level Void Interpretation Stage martial artist!”
“Wait… Feng Tian Wu asked him to execute some sort of secret technique earlier, then a black colored flame brand appeared between Zi Shang’s brows. After that, he revealed a cultivation at the sixth level of the Void Interpretation Stage! Could it be that he’d only capable of possessing this cultivation after executing his secret technique?”
“It’s probably like that… But this secret technique is truly too abnormal to actually allow a second level Void Interpretation Stage martial artist to instantly possess a strength at the sixth level of the Void Interpretation Stage.”
The surrounding spectators were shocked by Zi Shang’s secret technique.
“Secret technique?” At this moment, even the three monks from the Empyrean Temple were shocked by the changes that happened on Zi Shang.
“After executing his secret technique, Zi Shang’s cultivation is actually capable of being equal with mine?” Zhang Yan stared fixedly at Zi Shang as his expression became slightly serious.
After joining the Emotion Severing Sect and possessing his current cultivation, he’d recalled his past on many occasions. Of course, he didn’t recall the wishful one sided love he had that was unbearable to recall, and he instead recalled the various figures that he’d met in the past.
Amongst them was the other four who were one of the five great young masters of the Azure Forest Imperial Kingdom like him, and then it was Duan Ling Tian.
As far as he was concerned, with his current cultivation, then no matter if it was the other four of the five great young masters or Duan Ling Tian, they were bound to be left far behind by him.
Yet now, when he saw the sixth level Void Interpretation Stage cultivation revealed by Zi Shang, he deeply realized that he was too conceited.
“Elder Ghost, kill her!” At the same time, an anxious voice ceaselessly resounded in Zi Shang’s body, and it was precisely the voice of Zi Shang.
Presently, Zi Shang was precisely being controlled by Ghost Fire’s incomplete soul.
Right when Ghost Fire controlled Zi Shang’s body and intended to kill Feng Tian Wu, his figure that was just about to flash out had instantly stopped on the spot.
His listless and dim eyes were instantly suffused with traces of terror.
All of this was only because he saw Feng Tian Wu taking out a broken stone tablet unhurriedly, and that stone tablet was slightly trembling now as if it had sensed something.
“Dammit! Why is the Devilseal Tablet in her possession!?” Subsequently, a ghastly and aged voice resounded ceaselessly within Zi Shang’s body. “Zi Shang, you go play with her yourself… If you can’t, then just admit defeat! Duan Ling Tian actually passed over the Devilseal Tablet to her! Dammit!”
In the next moment, the flame brand between Zi Shang’s brows vanished completely.
Zi Shang’s soul returned to his own body.
“Big Brother Duan really planned thoroughly.” A wisp of a smile suffused Feng Tian Wu’s beautiful face when she saw this scene.
The Devilseal Tablet in her hand was something Duan Ling Tian had passed to her last night, and he asked her to take it out and scare Zi Shang with it once the black colored flame brand appeared between Zi Shang’s brows.
At that time, Zi Shang would take the initiative to admit defeat.
“I admit defeat!” Zi Shang’s depressed and bitter voice sounded out like a shocking tremor that caused everyone that was anticipating the battle to be dumbstruck.
Why did he admit defeat?
This was what most the people present were puzzled and bewildered about.
After Zi Shang revealed a cultivation at the sixth level of the Void Interpretation Stage, practically all the remaining people besides Duan Ling Tian thought that Feng Tian Wu would admit defeat, and even if she didn’t admit defeat, she would be defeated by Zi Shang.
However, reality played a huge joke on them!
After Zi Shang revealed a sixth level Void Interpretation Stage cultivation, he was bearing down menacingly a moment ago, yet was terrified in the next moment and even admitted defeat directly.
“What’s Zi Shang doing?”
“If he wanted to admit defeat, then he should have done it since the beginning? Why did he execute his secret technique and then admit defeat? Isn’t this a waste of my shock?”
“Why did Vice Fort Master Ning take such a trash disciple, he’s too useless! He possesses a cultivation at the sixth level of the Void Interpretation Stage, yet doesn’t even dare make a move against Feng Tian Wu.”
The clamorous sounds in the surroundings were one sided, and all of them were condemning Zi Shang.
“Zi Shang!” At the same time, the expression of Ning Can in the sky above the combat arena went completely ominous as his enraged voice transmission pierced into Zi Shang’s ears. “What the f*ck are you doing? Didn’t I tell you that you must kill Feng Tian Wu?”
“Master, I’m unable to kill Feng Tian Wu due to some reasons that I’m not at the convenience to say now. But I guarantee that I’ll surely give you an answer.” Zi Shang who was prepared since long ago replied when he heard Ning Can’s voice transmission.
“I hope you can do as you said! Otherwise, even if you’re my personal disciple, I’ll still punish you heavily!” Ning Can’s expression eased up when he heard this, yet he still warned Zi Shang.
“Don’t worry, Master.” Zi Shang replied, and then his chilly gaze stared at Feng Tian Wu as he said via voice transmission, “Feng Tian Wu, I truly never imagined that Duan Ling Tian would pass that thing to you… If it’s possible, I hope you can transfer possession of it to me, and I’ll agree to any request of yours for it!”
“It’s even to the extent that I can exchange for it with the eighth level Fire Concept Fragment my Master bestowed to me, so long as you’re willing to give me that broken stone tablet you just put away.” Zi Shang’s words were filled with temptation.
But unfortunately, Feng Tian Wu would utterly not be fooled. “You’re dreaming!”
Instantly, Zi Shang’s expression was livid, yet he was helpless against Feng Tian Wu.
Without the assistance of Elder Ghost, he was utterly unable to be a match to Feng Tian Wu who’d comprehended fourth level Fire Concept.
Zi Shang’s challenge to Feng Tian Wu ended with him admitting defeat, so both of them exchanged number tokens.
The possessor of the number 2 token became Feng Tian Wu, and the possessor of the number 7 token became Zi Shang.
After Feng Tian Wu obtained the number 2 token, she returned to Duan Ling Tian’s side and returned the Devilseal Tablet to Duan Ling Tian at the first possible moment. At the same time, she said with surprise, “Big Brother Duan, what exactly is this broken stone tablet? Zi Shang actually wants to use an eighth level Fire Concept Fragment to exchange for it with me.”
“Eighth level Fire Concept Fragment? He really does think wishfully.” Duan Ling Tian looked at the distant Zi Shang and laughed with ridicule, and then he said via voice transmission, “Tian Wu, I’m not sure what exactly this thing is, but you just have to remember one thing and that is I won’t exchange this stone tablet even if someone gave me 100 ninth level Fire Concept Fragments, let alone a mere eighth level Fire Concept Fragment.”
“It’s so valuable?” Feng Tian Wu’s beautiful face was covered in shock when she heard this.
Even though Duan Ling Tian didn’t clearly say what the broken stone tablet was and what its worth was, yet Duan Ling Tian’s words had allowed her to realize this stone tablet wasn’t simple.
“Ling Tian, thank you.” Feng Wu Dao clearly saw the movements between Duan Ling Tian and Feng Tian Wu and naturally guessed that the reason Zi Shang admitted defeat, so he couldn’t help but thank Duan Ling Tian.
“Uncle Feng, we’re all good friends, so there’s no need to be so courteous… Not to mention, I only lifted a finger.” Duan Ling Tian shook his head and smiled.
“Yes, we are.” Feng Wu Dao laughed joyfully as he looked at Duan Ling Tian then looked at his own daughter, and a spurious smile was revealed on his face.
Duan Ling Tian directly disregarded this, whereas Feng Tian Wu was embarrassed to the point her beautiful face flushed as if blood would drip out from it.
“Imperial Uncle, did you notice?” The Emperor of the Darkhan Dynasty spoke with a serious expression.
“Yes.” Bai Nan Yin nodded and said with a fearful expression, “The reason Zi Shang admitted defeat would because Feng Tian Wu withdrew that broken stone tablet, the Saint Weapon that Zi Shang said could provide an amplification of 100%!”
“I don’t know if this broke stone tablet is a Saint Weapon or if it can provide an amplification of 100%… But I’ve discerned that Zi Shang is extremely afraid of it! During the Dynasty Martial Competition that day, Zi Shang lost after Duan Ling Tian took out this stone tablet.”
“Earlier, the reason Zi Shang directly admitted defeat when Duan Ling Tian challenged him was presumably because he was afraid of that stone tablet. Besides that, he was originally intending to fight when facing Feng Tian Wu, but he directly admitted defeat again when Feng Tian Wu took out the stone tablet.” The Emperor of the Darkhan Dynasty nodded.
“Perhaps Zi Shang had the intention of using our Darkhan Dynasty’s Imperial Family to help him seize that stone tablet since the beginning! But unfortunately, Big Brother had gone missing because of that stone tablet and it’s extremely like that he has been killed.” Bai Nan Yin sighed with an extremely complicated gaze.
The sounds of discussion sounded ceaselessly in the sky above the combat arena.
Practically everyone was condemning Zi Shang.
“Why did Zi Shang suddenly admit defeat?” Zhang Yan frowned, and then he looked at Pei An who was beside him. “Master, have you discerned anything?”
Pei An shook his head.
The three monks from Empyrean Temple had puzzled expression now as well, and they were unable to wrap their heads around Zi Shang’s actions of admitting defeat.
The discussions of the surrounding spectators only gradually stopped when the possessor of the number 3 token Qi Feng ascended the arena.
After Qi Feng ascended the arena, his gaze locked onto a graceful and beautiful figure. “The possessor of the number 9 token, Ye Ling.”
Ye Ling was the strongest expert in the younger generation of the Darqing Dynasty, her cultivation was at the third level of the Void Interpretation Stage and had comprehended second level Void Interpretation Concept, causing her strength to be extraordinary.
But unfortunately, since she’d encountered Qi Feng, she was bound to lose.
Qi Feng was the ninth prince of the Darqi Dynasty, and he revealed a cultivation at the fourth level of the Void Interpretation Stage right off the bat, allowing him to crush Ye Ling domineeringly.
Ye Ling didn’t have the slightest ability to fight back when facing him, and she lost in a single move.
Fortunately, Qi Feng held back and didn’t ruthlessly kill her, otherwise, Ye Ling would die even if she had 10 lives.
“If I don’t utilize my soul skill, I won’t be a match for this Qi Feng.” Duan Ling Tian stared fixedly at Qi Feng and muttered to himself.
