Chapter 823: The Fate of An Innate Spirit Body
Translator: KurazyTolanzuraytor Editor: JayC
“Composite Chain Sword?” Duan Ling Tian muttered to himself as he looked at Su Li, who’d become the center of attention after killing Lu Yong.
Earlier, when Su Li abandoned the enormous sword and allowed it to be destroyed by Lu Yong, Duan Ling Tian had noticed the flash of movements by Su Li.
After abandoning the enormous sword, he mobilized his sword in the first possible moment and killed Lu Yong, who didn’t have the time to react.
Lu Yong had a strength that was more formidable than Su Li, yet a single mistake costed his life, pitiable.
“Even though this Composite Chain Sword Su Li cultivated is only a low grade Heaven Rank sword skill, yet based on his execution earlier, it’s obviously already cultivated to the Mastery Stage!” Duan Ling Tian thought to himself.
Sure enough, Su Li was a natural born sword cultivator.
Meanwhile, the surrounding spectators that were shocked by Su Li’s actions had successively recovered from their shock, and they couldn’t help but exclaim loudly.
As far as they were concerned, the sword skill Su Li executed earlier was marvelous!
So what if there was a difference of five ancient horned dragons?
He was still able to kill his opponent while possessing a weaker strength!
Under the gazes of everyone present, Su Li flew out to descend by Duan Ling Tian’s side in a short moment, and then he said with a smile, “Duan Ling Tian, I’ve helped you take revenge… How will you repay me?”
If it was anyone else, then since the person was the personal disciple of Feng Wei, perhaps Su Li wouldn’t strike a killing below.
But Lu Yong had once made a move against Duan Ling Tian during the first round of the selections, and according to what Zhang Shou Yong said, Duan Ling Tian almost died at the hands of Lu Yong.
It was precisely because of this that he struck a killing blow at Lu Yong!
Duan Ling Tian was a friend he’d known since his younger days, and Duan Ling Tian had even been generous with aid when he needed help, so Duan Ling Tian had an extremely special status in his heart.
No matter who it was, one who wanted to kill Duan Ling Tian was his enemy!
“What repayment do you want?” Duan Ling Tian smiled.
“Alright, I’m only joking.” Su Li shook his head and smiled.
Duan Ling Tian’s eyes narrowed as a wisp of gratefulness appeared in his eyes.
Actually, since the moment Su Li killed Lu Yong, he’d guessed the reason behind Su Li killing Lu Yong.
It was precisely for the sake of taking revenge for him!
Otherwise, Su Li was entirely capable of heavily injuring Lu Yong, yet had utterly no need to kill him.
Because there was no benefit to Su Li by killing Lu Yong, and it was even to the extent that he would offend the Vice Fort Master Feng Wei because of this.
This was something that could be discerned from the hateful gaze Feng Wei looked at Su Li with.
Duan Ling Tian didn’t speak of any words of thanks because there was entirely no need. The relationship between him and Su Li didn’t require these things that were expressed on the surface.
Everything was conveyed within silence.
“The possessor of the number 6 token, Lu Yong, failed in his challenge of the possessor of the number 10 token, Su Li. Su Li has obtained the number 6 token! Besides that, because of the death of Lu Yong, there’s a lack of a participant in the top 10 of the martial competition, so it will be replaced by the possessor of the number 11 token.” Ning Can announced with a sonorous voice.
The possessor of the number 11 token was Zhang Shou Yong, and he obtained Su Li’s number 10 token.
As for Su Li, he obtained Lu Yong’s number 6 token.
“Su Li, looks like I have to thank you.” Zhang Shou Yong originally thought he had no fate with the top 10 of the martial competition, yet who would have known that such a turn would actually occur, and it allowed him to replace a position in the top 10.
Moreover, Zhang Shou Yong didn’t intend to agree to the challenge of anyone because he knew that there was still a certain amount of distance between him and the others in the top 10.
Even if he fought, he would only bring embarrassment to himself.
So why not stand on the spot and wait to obtain the rewards of the top 10?
The fourth round of the selections continued.
The possessor of the number 7 token, Feng Tian Wu, seemed to have transformed into a fairy of flames as she arrived in the central area of the sky above the combat arena in a short moment. [Editor’s note: apparently the author forgot she’s got the number 2 token now, but he corrects it in the next chapter more or less…]
Her gaze descended onto the possessor of the number 9 token, Ye Ling, at the first possible moment, and she challenged Ye Ling.
Ye Ling took a deep breath and flew out to stand in confrontation with Feng Tian Wu.
Now, after she witnessed Feng Tian Wu’s true strength, Ye Ling didn’t dare underestimate Feng Tian Wu in the slightest.
Even though Feng Tian Wu’s cultivation was inferior to her, yet Feng Tian Wu’s comprehension of Concept far surpassed her.
So, Ye Ling seemed as if she was facing a great opponent when facing Feng Tian Wu.
The two female young experts stood in confrontation and drew the attention of everyone present.
Ye Ling had become famous in the Darqing Dynasty long ago, and the members of the other Dynasties had heard of her.
Even though Feng Tian Wu was beautiful like a celestial maiden and even possessed an extraordinary strength, yet she wasn’t known of before this.
But after Feng Tian Wu fought earlier, no one dared question Feng Tian Wu’s strength, and everyone knew that this young woman that was beautiful like a celestial maiden didn’t just have a drop dead gorgeous appearance, her strength far surpassed most of the experts in the younger generation.
She was merely at the age of 25, yet her cultivation was at the second level of the Void Interpretation Stage, and she’d comprehended fourth level Void Interpretation Concept.
Not to mention a female martial artist, how many male martial artists were capable of such an achievement?
“HA!” Ye Ling let out a delicate shout as she took the initiative to attack, and the sword in her hand was like a swimming dragon that was peerlessly graceful as it flashed out like a leaf that struck towards Feng Tian Wu like a dragonfly skimming the surface of the water.
There seemed to be strands of jade waves and ripples that pulsated and coiled on the surroundings of her sword, and it was precisely materialized Water Concept.
The sword struck out in a mediocre manner, yet it contained an extraordinary strength.
In the sky, the phenomenon of the heavens and the earth condensed into form.
98 ancient horned dragon silhouettes soared down the sky along with Ye Ling that seemed to have transformed into cats, and they brandished their claws and bared their fangs as they pounced towards Feng Tian Wu.
Feng Tian Wu moved like the wind as she moved swiftly to intercept Ye Ling.
Her whip that was coiled with flames seemed like a spirit serpent that swung out with its tail, and it fearlessly moved to intercept the sharp sword in Ye Ling’s hand.
The phenomenon of the heavens and the earth rose abruptly in the sky and transformed into 100 ancient horned dragon silhouettes, and it was an entire two more than the ancient horned dragon silhouettes in the sky above Ye Ling.
100 ancient horned dragon silhouettes bared their fangs and brandished their claws as they pounced towards the 98 ancient horned dragon silhouettes and were locked in combat, and they were temporarily equally matched.
The grade three spirit whip and grade three spirit sword collided with each other, and then both of them shook before backing away at the same time.
At the instant they backed away, both of them advanced in unison and struck towards each other.
Swish! Swish! Swish! Swish! Swish!
For a time, sword images and whip imaged that covered the sky intersected past each other like waves of violent storms, and the two beautiful figures were like the meeting of fire and water as they ceaselessly collided with each other.
In the end, it was Feng Tian Wu who occupied the advantage, and she pressed on to injure Ye Ling and obtain the final victory.
Ye Ling breathed heavily as she looked at the beautiful figure in the distance, and her gaze was as complicated as complicated could be.
Could it be that this young woman that’s wearing red clothes and looks like a fairy of flames is one that’s favored by the heavens?
Not only did she possess a peerless appearance that could be said to be drop dead gorgeous and cause envy in others, she also possessed a shocking strength.
“I originally thought that the Darqing Dynasty’s Ye Ling could be considered to be the number one female expert in the younger generation of our ten Dynasties… But now it would seem that it isn’t so.”
“The Darkhan Dynasty’s Feng Tian Wu is the strongest female expert in the younger generation of our ten Dynasties!”
“It’s still the first time I’m seeing a peerless beauty who possesses such natural talent!”
The surrounding crowd of spectators sighed with emotion.
Ou Chen, the possessor of the number 8 token stood in the distant sky, and he stared at Feng Tian Wu with a gaze filled with fear and seriousness.
Even though he felt his strength surpassed Ye Ling, yet it didn’t surpass Ye Ling by much.
Once he faced Feng Tian Wu, he didn’t have sufficient confidence in obtaining victory.
It was fine if it was anyone else, but Feng Tian Wu was only a young woman at the mere age of 25, and it caused his heart to be filled with bitterness, as a young woman like this had caused such feelings to be aroused in his heart.
The fairy of flames flashed through the sky and returned to Duan Ling Tian’s side.
“Could it be that the heavens are envious of outstanding geniuses?” Sword 13 and Saber 5 looked at Feng Tian Wu as they sighed in their hearts. Feng Tian Wu was a possessor of the Fire Spirit Body, and it caused them to feel pity in their hearts.
Of course, they knew as well that if it wasn’t for Feng Tian Wu possessing the Fire Spirit Body, it would be impossible for her to possess such achievements at such an age.
“So that’s how it is.” In the sky, the Sect Master of the Emotion Severing Sect, Pei An, withdrew his gaze from Feng Tian Wu and muttered to himself.
“Master, have you noticed something?” Zhang Yan stood at Pei An’s side as he asked respectfully.
“If I’m not wrong… This Feng Tian Wu is probably a possessor of an Innate Spirit Body.” As Pei An spoke and finished speaking, his gaze seemed to become slightly distant, and he seemed to be recalling something.
“An Innate Spirit Body?” Zhang Yan’s pupils constricted as he spoke with astonishment. “Could it be an Innate Spirit Body like Senior Brother Hong?”
“Yes.” Pei An nodded lightly as he spoke with an emotionless expression. “But your Senior Brother Hong is different from her… Your Senior Brother Hong possessed a Lightning Spirit Body, whereas, she ought to possess a Fire Spirit Body.”
Even though Pei An’s expression didn’t possess any expression since the beginning, yet a trace of sadness flashed past his eyes as he spoke.
“So that’s how it is.” Zhang Yang couldn’t help but gasp when he heard this, and he sighed as he looked at the young woman who was like a fairy of flames.
Because of that Senior Brother Hong of his, he knew a little bit about the fate of an Innate Spirit Body.
Senior Brother Hong was supposedly the one and only personal disciple his master had taken before him, yet he’d never seen his Senior Brother Hong.
When he joined the Emotion Severing Sect, his Senior Brother Hong was already gone.
Supposedly, when Senior Brother Hong was 30, the energy of the Lightning Spirit Body within his body had erupted, and it caused him to die young.
But the natural talent and strength of his Senior Brother Hong before death was sufficient to cause him to be unable to compare to it and even feel embarrassed of his own inferiority.
Supposedly, throughout the past history of the entire Emotion Severing Sect, the natural talent of his Senior Brother Hong was something that no one was capable of comparing to, and it could be said to be unprecedented.
“After breaking through to the Void Interpretation Stage, because of certain reasons, an Innate Spirit Body in unable to consume spirit fruits to cultivate. Otherwise, with Senior Brother Hong’s natural talent, he would be entirely capable of breaking through to the Void Transformation Stage by the age of 30 and escape the fate of the Innate Spirit Body.” Zhang Yan sighed in his heart.
“The heavens envy outstanding geniuses.” Zhang Yan muttered in a low voice. Perhaps he was speaking of that Senior Brother of his that he’d never met, or perhaps he was speaking of the red clothed young woman in the distance.
The fate of an Innate Spirit Body seemed to be something that there was rarely anyone capable of turning around in the history of the Cloud Continent.
But once it was turned around, the person would soar into the skies with a single leap to become a genius favored by the heavens.
