Chapter 836: The Voice From Within The Devilseal Tablet
Translator: KurazyTolanzuraytor Editor: JayC
“Both of you can feel proud for being able to flee so far under our pursuit.” An elder of Skywolf Fort looked at Duan Ling Tian and Ta Mu as he spoke indifferently.
“Elders, can all of you let us off? Just say you didn’t find us when you report back. How about it?” Ta Mu grinned and completely didn’t have the realization that he’d become a ‘trapped beast.’
However, not a single person paid attention to Ta Mu.
“If all of you are afraid of not obtaining any benefit from letting us off, then all of you can be at ease… Look at my Master, he’s merely 28 yet possesses a cultivation at the fourth level of the Void Interpretation Stage, and his future is limitless! It’s even to the extent that even your Skywolf Fort’s Fort Master might not be able to compare to him in the future.” As he finished speaking, Ta Mu’s tone contained slight temptation. “So long as all of you let me off, it’s similar to giving my Master a great favor today, and in the future…”
“Shut up!” An elder seemed to be unable to endure Ta Mu’s ceaseless chattering, and he shouted out coldly to interrupt Ta Mu.
“Vice Fort Master Feng said that we should kill them once catching up to them! We only have to bring back their Spatial Rings.” One of the elders of Skywolf Fort spoke with a chilly voice.
Instantly, the other elders revealed killing intent as they looked at Duan Ling Tian and Ta Mu, and Origin Energy and material Concept combines on their bodies as a terrifying might seemed ready to come out.
Duan Ling Tian stood in the sky, yet his expression remained calm while fallen into such danger.
Because he knew that it was useless even if he panicked now, and only by maintaining a calm state would he perhaps be able to find a chance to survive.
“Feng Wei revealed greedy from his eyes when he saw me earlier. Obviously, he wants something from me… Now, these people want my Spatial Ring.” Duan Ling Tian’s heart sank. “What exactly do they want?”
For a time, Duan Ling Tian couldn’t help but be slightly bewildered.
“Could it be the Quasi Royal Grade Spirit Sword?” Duan Ling Tian couldn’t help but arouse this thought in his heart.
After all, when he fought Qi Feng today, he’d once utilized the Quasi Royal Grade Spirit Sword to shatter the arrow Qi Feng shot out.
But he was extremely sure that besides the Emotion Severing Sect’s Master, Pei An, there ought to be no one including Sword 13 that had discerned the sword he used at the time was extraordinary.
“Unless the elusive Fort Master of the Skywolf Fort was concealed in the shadows and noticed how ‘extraordinary’ the Quasi Royal Grade Spirit Sword was… But is this even possible?” Thoughts spun in Duan Ling Tian’s mind as he ceaselessly pondered about various possibilities.
Suddenly, a flash of enlightenment appeared in Duan Ling Tian’s mind.
“Besides that… Zi Shang repeatedly said that I won’t be able to live for long, and he said the same when I left. Could it be that it’s because of him?” Duan Ling Tian gasped when he thought up to here.
As far as he was concerned, that madman Zi Shang was capable of anything.
“But, what did he rely on to convince the Skywolf Fort to deploy such a force to deal with me? Moreover, they seem to want something from in my Spatial Ring…” Duan Ling Tian pondered.
In next to no time, a broken stone tablet appeared in Duan Ling Tian’s mind without reason or rhyme, and it was impossible to eliminate.
“Right! How could I have forgotten the Devilseal Tablet! During the Darkhan Dynasty’s competition that day, the soul hiding within Zi Shang’s body had once mentioned the Devilseal Tablet after possessing Zi Shang.”
“In other words, he knows of the Devilseal Tablet, and it’s extremely likely that he knows the origins of the Devilseal Tablet… Moreover, the Devilseal Tablet in my possession is something Zi Shang dreams to obtain! After all, if I don’t have the Devilseal Tablet, he wouldn’t fall to the extent of being countered by me in every aspect.” Duan Ling Tian thought to himself.
Now Duan Ling Tian could determine that Zi Shang was the one behind everything.
“Not to mention the Devilseal Tablet’s ability to suppress souls, just its amplification strength of 100% is sufficient to make any third-rate power in the Foreign Lands to fight to the death!”
“Since the soul in Zi Shang’s body knows of the Devilseal Tablet, I presume he knows its ability extremely well and even might know the amplification strength of the Devilseal Tablet!”
“Even if Zi Shang only mentioned the amplification ability of the Devilseal Tablet before Ning Can… The Skywolf Fort would surely go mad for it! If the Devilseal Tablet that provides an amplification of 100% were to fall in the hands of the Skywolf Fort’s Master, the Skywolf Fort would even be able to suppress the various third-rate powers like the Blade Sect, Empyrean Temple, and Emotion Severing Sect!” Duan Ling Tian took a deep breath, the more he thought about, the surer he was. The target of the people before him was precisely the Devilseal Tablet that lays within his Spatial Ring.
Suddenly, a wave of terrifying howls of the wind swept over, causing Duan Ling Tian’s entire body to tremble as if it was struck by lightning, and his back even flowed with cold sweat.
“Master, watch out!” Practically at the exact same time, an explosive shout sounded out by Duan Ling Tian’s ears.
An enormous band resounded out, and it caused Duan Ling Tian to be unable to help but raise his head to look. With a single glance, he saw the robust figure that blocked right before him.
However, at this moment, the aura of this robust figure was weakening.
A fist penetrated through Ta Mu’s chest, and it was the fist of the Skywolf Fort elder that attacked suddenly.
“What a touching scene.” The elder casually withdrew his fist, and Water Concept suffused out as his hand moved out to wash away the blood on his hand.
On the other hand, a hideous bloody hole appeared in Ta Mu’s chest and ceaselessly sprayed blood, and in the blink of an eye, it tainted half Ta Mu’s body, yet he still forcefully and bitterly held on.
“Ma… ma… Master… I… I…” Ta Mu struggled for a moment and looked at Duan Ling Tian with great difficult, and he seemed to want to say something.
But he hadn’t been able to finish speaking when his body trembled abruptly and was completely devoid of any signs of life before plunging down from midair and falling on to the plains below.
“TA MU!!” Duan Ling Tian’s pupils constricted abruptly. Never had he imagined that Ta Mu would use his own body to block the fist of the Skywolf Fort’s elder for him.
After all, it could be said that there was utterly no relationship between him and Ta Mu.
If one really wanted to speak about any relationship, then it would be none other than Ta Mu one-sidedly wanting to take him as Master and wanted to learn the soul skill, Thousand Illusions, from him.
Yet now, it was precisely a person like this, a person that he was unwilling to take as a disciple no matter what that had stopped the attack of the Skywolf Fort elder and saved his life.
How great courage would be needed to do this?
Moreover, this wasn’t something that only needed courage, it also required someone that was worthy of someone acting in this way.
“Was it worth to do that for me?” Duan Ling Tian’s heart shook, and he seemed to be speaking to himself yet also seemed to be asking Ta Mu who’d already died.
As far as he was concerned, since the beginning that Ta Mu wanted to take him as master until that moment, he’s never treated Ta Mu properly.
It was even to the extent that he’d berated Ta Mu repeatedly and wanted to make Ta Mu give up.
But what about Ta Mu?
Ta Mu always seemed as if nothing happened, allowing Duan Ling Tian to berate and refuse him as if nothing had happened.
“I’m sorry…” Suddenly, Duan Ling Tian’s eyes were filled with tears that were ready to flow out at any moment.
These tears were his guilt to Ta Mu.
If time could flow backwards for even a moment, he would absolutely not treat Ta Mu so coldly and indifferently as he did before.
But now, he didn’t have the chance anymore.
Ta Mu was dead!
Dead right before him, and he’d died for his sake!
“Your life can’t be said to be lived in vain since someone was willing to die for you.” After keeping silent for a short moment, the six elders returned to their senses successively, and then one of them looked at Duan Ling Tian with a face covered in killing intent. “Now, you should follow him.”
Finally, Duan Ling Tian returned to his sense, and the guiltiness he felt to Ta Mu completely transformed into bone piercing hatred towards the six Skywolf Fort elders and towards the entire Skywolf Fort!
A debt of blood must be repaid by blood!
But did he have the strength now?
Suddenly, Duan Ling Tian’s countenance went exceedingly pale as he clenched his fists tightly to the point his nails pierced into his palm, and after a wave of piercing pain, fresh blood flowed out.
Yet he seemed to have utterly not noticed all this.
“I want strength!”
“I want formidable strength!
“I want the strength to annihilate them, annihilate the Skywolf Fort, and even annihilate everything!”
At this moment, Duan Ling Tian’s yearning for strength in his heart had practically arrived at the limit.
The violet clothed on his body was coiled by waves of strong winds and fluttered.
His long hair that was scattered around him because the band that tied his hair had broken even fluttered with the wind, and it was suffused with layers of azure colored strong winds.
In the sky, the phenomenon of the heavens and the earth rose abruptly to first cause 60 ancient horned dragon silhouettes to appear before another 30 ancient horned dragon silhouettes appeared.
Fourth level of the Void Interpretation Stage!
Second level Intermediate Wind Concept!
“No wonder you were the first to leave the Illusory Crypt in the second round of the martial competition. So it turns out that you’ve always been concealing your cultivation, and you’re actually a fourth level Void Interpretation Stage martial artist!” An elder spoke with surprise.
He wasn’t present during the third and fourth round, so he didn’t know that Duan Ling Tian had broken through later on, and he thought that Duan Ling Tian had been concealing his cultivation.
“Fourth level Void Interpretation Stage at the age of 28… Even if it’s in the entire Cloud Continent, such natural talent can be considered to be monstrous. What a pity…” The elder who’d used the Age Measuring Pearl to measure Duan Ling Tian’s age during the martial competition before felt pity for Duan Ling Tian.
“I’ve killed many people in my lifetime, yet I’ve never killed a genius martial artist like you… Even if you die today, we won’t forget you.” The corners of an elder’s mouth curled into a cold smile as he spoke indifferently.
The material concept on the bodies of the six elders swept out, causing their robes to flutter without the wind, and their gazes descended onto Duan Ling Tian in unison.
As far as they were concerned, the violet clothed young man before them was bound to become a dead spirit at their hands today.
On the other hand, at the same time that Duan Ling Tian was shouting ceaselessly in his heart, he noticed the Spatial Ring on his hand was trembling.
With a command in his heart, Duan Ling Tian noticed that the Devilseal Tablet in the space within his Spatial Ring seemed to have become restless, and it was even more violent than before.
When Duan Ling Tian’s consciousness encountered the Devilseal Tablet, his soul throbbed, and there seemed to be a voice that was filled with temptation speaking to him.
Let me out!!
I’m can give you boundless strength!!
