Translator: KurazyTolanzuraytor Editor: JayC
“It’s this kid that wants to help the Ye Clan break off the engagement?” A young man in embroidered clothes had a gloomy expression as he looked at Duan Ling Tian who was in confrontation with Chen Dong, and he asked with a low voice. “A person like him is worthy of fighting my Father?”
This young man in embroidered clothes was precisely the groom in the marriage agreement between the Chen Clan and the Ye Clan, the Chen Clan’s Second Young Master, Chen An.
“Second Young Master, you must not look down upon him.” Chen Lei frowned. He’d never like this good for nothing son of the Chen Clan, yet when he heard Chen An looking down upon Duan Ling Tian, he felt slightly uncomfortable instead.
After all, even he’d lost at Duan Ling Tian’s hands, and Chen An saying this was no different than looking down upon him.
“Third Elder, I think you’ve grown old and are useless.” Chen An glanced at Chen Lei before mocking, and his words didn’t show the slightest fear towards the Third Elder of the Chen Clan, who was famous for his explosive temper.
Chen Lei’s face sank, yet he just happened to be unable to do anything to Chen An.
He’d always done things his own way in his entire lifetime, and he’d become indifferent to life and death. Even if it was the Supreme Elder of the Chen Clan, an existence at the fifth level of the Void Interpretation Stage, he wasn’t afraid of him in the slightest.
However, because he owed Chen Dong his life when he was young, it caused him to be helpless before Chen Dong and even Chen Dong’s loved ones.
Chen An was the Second Young Master of the Chen Clan and was the youngest son of Chen Dong.
Because of Chen Dong’s life saving grace, Chen Lei would never flare up before Chen An.
“The strength of 150 ancient horned dragons…” Duan Ling Tian muttered to himself as he looked at the phenomenon of the heavens and the earth above Chen Dong, and a sword had suddenly appeared within his hand, a sword that faintly emitted a terrifying aura.
The Quasi Royal Grade Spirit Sword!
“Next…” With a command in his heart, Origin Energy and second level Intermediate Wind Concept appeared at practically the exact same moment in Duan Ling Tian’s hand, and it fused easily into the Quasi Royal Grade Spirit Sword.
In the next moment, 150 ancient horned dragon silhouettes appeared out of thin air in the sky above Duan Ling Tian, and it was precisely the phenomenon of the heavens and the earth formed drawn from the energy contained within Duan Ling Tian’s sword.
Under Duan Ling Tian’s intentional control, the ancient horned dragon silhouettes had appeared at the same time, so no one noticed any inkling or noticed the Quasi Royal Grade Spirit Sword in his hand.
Duan Ling Tian stood while resting on his sword with 150 ancient horned dragon silhouettes in the sky above him, and he stood in confrontation with Chen Dong who stood in his spear laying horizontal before him and 151 ancient horned dragon silhouettes in the sky above him.
Even though Duan Ling Tian was capable of instantly and easily defeating Chen Dong by relying on his soul skill, Thousand Illusion.
But Chen Dong frankness from before caused Duan Ling Tian to have a rather good impression of him, so Duan Ling Tian had decided to fight Chen Dong in this way to show his respect towards Chen Dong.
Even though it was slightly difficult to obtain victory in this way, Duan Ling Tian didn’t regret it!
Moreover, fighting Chen Dong with a similar strength would be able to bring forth a tempering effect to a certain extent. “Unless Chen Dong utilizes any other Concepts… Otherwise, I’ll at most utilize the first level Elementary Sword Concept to execute the Nine Dragon’s Radiant Flash and will absolutely not utilize my Lightning Concept and Earth Concept!”
Once he exerted his first level Elementary Sword Concept, it would be comparable to the strength of an ancient horned dragon.
In this way, Duan Ling Tian’s strength would be comparable to the strength of 151 ancient horned dragons, and it would be equal to Chen Dong. Even if Chen Dong’s strength slightly surpassed him, it would only be the strength of a few thousand ancient mammoths
That little bit of distance could be disregarded entirely!
The sword in Duan Ling Tian’s hand faintly emitted strands of fierce aura, and at the same time, a single ancient horned dragon silhouette appeared silently at an inconspicuous corner.
The strength of 151 ancient horned dragons were waiting to be deployed!
“Young Brother, I admire you for possessing such achievements at your age! No matter win or lose, I want to invite you to have a drink in my Chen Clan today!” Chen Dong who stood with his spear laying horizontally before him spoke with a clear voice, and his robe fluttered with the wind.
“Thank you, Patriarch Chen.” Duan Ling Tian who stood while resting on his sword smiled and nodded.
“Patriarch Chen is really magnanimous. The young man has come to provoke his Chen Clan, yet he actually wants to invite the young man for a drink.”
“As expected of the Chen Clan’s Patriarch. With such magnanimity, no wonder the Chen Clan was capable of being the number one clan in our Driftcloud Town.”
“With just Patriarch Chen’s magnanimity, the Chen Clan deserves its reputation as the number one clan in Driftcloud Town!”
The surrounding crowd of spectators nodded successively, and their words were filled with admiration towards Chen Dong.
“Young Brother, watch out!” Suddenly, Chen Dong shouted out explosively, and as soon as he finished speaking, he’d already dashed out with a speed so swift that he only left behind numerous clear afterimages.
A wave of terrifying and piercing howls resounded out at almost the exact same moment. Instantly, Chen Dong who arrived nearby Duan Ling Tian abruptly swung out the seven foot spear in his hand.
Bang! Bang! Bang! Bang! Bang!
Everywhere the spear passed, it was like a wyrm that left its lair, giving rise to waves of deafening sounds of explosions of the air, and the head of the wyrm even smashed fiercely towards Duan Ling Tian.
The strength of 151 ancient horned dragons flooded out completely!
Nine Dragon’s Radiant Flash!
Early on, at the instant Chen Dong had finished speaking, Duan Ling Tian had already started moving. He didn’t choose to dodge, because it was impossible for his speed to be swifter than the spear in Chen Dong’s hand.
It was even to the extent that even if Chen Dong utilized a movement technique, it would be far from something he would be able to compare to.
The phenomenon of the heavens and the earth in the sky above him relied mainly on the amplification of the Quasi Royal Grade Spirit Sword in his hand, and even though his cultivation was comparable to Chen Dong, his comprehension of Concept was far inferior to Chen Dong.
The speed of one’s movement technique relied on one’s Origin Energy and Concept. Presently, because of the difference in Concept, the speed he revealed when executing a movement technique was bound to be far inferior to Chen Dong!
In this way, he could only utilize his advantage, the Quasi Royal Grade Spirit Sword!
Nine Dragon’s Radiant Flash!
Without the slightest hesitation, a sword strike whistling out with a raise of his hand, and a vast and enormous strength gushed out from the sword to finally transform into three divine dragons.
Two of these divine dragons were completely material, whereas, one of them looked extremely illusory.
Instantly, the four eyes of the two divine dragons flashed.
“Hmm?” At the same time, Duan Ling Tian noticed that the seven foot long spear of Chen Dong’s that pierced swiftly towards him had actually slowed down instantly, and it caused his heart to be unable to help but jerk. “Could it be that Chen Dong has noticed something?!”
Swish! Swish! Swish! Swish!
Four extreme flashes shot out from the eyes of the two divine dragons, and directly shot towards Chen Dong with a speed so swift it was astonishing.
At the critical moment, Chen Dong seemed to possess foresight, and the seven foot long spear in his hand shook before the tip of his spear flashed past like a shooting star.
Swoosh! Swoosh! Swoosh! Swoosh! Swoosh!
The seven foot long spear that contained a Spear Concept that seemed to be able to penetrate everything pierced out five times successively in an extremely short period of time.
Even though the speed of these five strikes weren’t as swift at the extreme flashes shot out from the divine dragons, yet they pierced towards the part of the sky the extreme flashes were about to flash past.
When the first strike pierced the sky, the first extreme flash just happened to flash over, and it collided with the spear strike and was shattered!
The second strike shattered the second extreme flash.
The third strike shattered the third.
The fourth strike shattered the fourth.
The fifth strike already had no more extreme flashes to shatter.
It tapped on the sky like a drop of water that dropped on the calm surface of a lake, causing the airflow in the sky to roil like the water on the surface of the lake, and it formed into circle after circle of ripples.
“What a formidable martial skill!” Duan Ling Tian’s strike came to no result, and he stood in the sky while looking with a surprised expression at Chen Dong who stood proudly in the distance.
Of course, his martial skill being formidable was one aspect, but the most important aspect was Chen Dong’s reaction speed in battle.
Even though Chen Dong’s martial skill was formidable, yet it was quite inferior to the Nine Dragon’s Radiant Flash, and the reason it was able to block the four extreme flashes shot out by his Nine Dragon’s Radiant Flash was because of Chen Dong’s terrifying reaction speed.
Five strikes were struck out successively after his opponent’s strike, and the first four strikes shattered his four extreme flashes, whereas, even though the fifth strike hit nothing, it was only because there was nothing for it to hit.
Duan Ling Tian was certain that even if there was a fifth extreme flash at that moment, it would be difficult for it to escape Chen Dong’s fifth strike.
“It’s the Chen Clan’s Heaven Rank martial skill, Thunder Nonastrike!” In next to no time, someone amongst the surrounding spectators couldn’t help but exclaim with shock.
“Supposedly, once the Chen Clan’s Thunder Nonastrike is cultivated to the Perfection Stage, it is capable of instantly striking out nine times, nine successive strikes!”
“I’ve also heard that a single strike can only be considered to be at the Rudiments Stage, three strikes is at the Initial Stage, five strikes is at the Mastery Stage, and nine strikes is the Perfection Stage.”
“So in this way, Patriarch Chen has already cultivated the Thunder Nonastrike to the Mastery Stage.”
The surrounding crowd of spectators discussed animatedly, and they were surprised by Chen Dong’s attainments in the Thunder Nonastrike.
At the same time that the might of a Heaven Rank martial skill was formidable, it was extremely difficult to cultivate.
Everyone knew clearly how difficult it was to cultivate a Heaven Rank martial skill to the Mastery Stage, and it was precisely because of this that they felt heartfelt admiration towards Chen Dong.
“Hmph! His attack looked very good when he struck out, yet wasn’t it easily dealt with by my Father? A piece of trash!” A cold smile suffused the corners of Chen An’s mouth as he looked at Duan Ling Tian from afar.
The corners of the nearby Chen Lei twitched.
A good for nothing disciple like you dares call that extraordinary genius young man as trash?
If Chen An wasn’t the son of Chen Dong, Chen Lei would have scolded Chen An right in the face since long ago.
“Second Young Master, you called him trash because you think you can defeat him?” Suddenly, an aged figure appeared silently by Chen An’s side, and only when he spoke did Chen An and the other members of the Chen Clan notice his presence.
“Supreme Elder!” Everyone from the Chen Clan bowed respectfully when they saw this old man with white hair and brows who was over the age of 70.
“Supreme… Supreme Elder!” As he looked at the old man, Chen An’s face went slightly pale as he hurriedly lowered his head and bowed.
Chen Lei couldn’t help but smile when he saw this scene.
In the entire Chen Clan, besides the Patriarch Chen Dong and the Eldest Young Master that had joined a great power, only the Supreme Elder was capable of restraining the Second Young Master.
“Second Young Master, you haven’t answered me… Do you think you can defeat him?” The Supreme Elder asked Chen An once more, and his aged face revealed extreme seriousness.
Chen An shook his head and laughed bitterly.
Even though he was good for nothing, yet he wasn’t stupid. The violet clothed young man that looked to be at the same age as he was obviously an expert at the same level as his father.
How could he possibly defeat the young man?
