“Chen Wei!” Duan Ling Tian noticed Chen Wei and Ke Zheng with a single glance.
Beside them was another robust young man that was almost two meters in height and a little bit over 30 in age. He seemed to be rough and broad, and his eyes were brimming with vigor.
“You’re Duan Ling Tian?” The three of them had just approached Duan Ling Tian and Ye Xuan when the robust young man’s gaze locked onto Duan Ling Tian, and his eyes were filled with dense battle intent. “I heard that you once defeated Chen Wei with a single strike?”
“Yes.” After Duan Ling Tian greeted Ke Zheng, he met the robust young man’s gaze and nodded.
“I’m able to defeat Chen Wei with a single strike as well! Come, fight me!” As soon as the robust young man finished speaking, his entire body seemed to have transformed into a bolt of lightning that arrived at the center of the practice grounds in a short moment, and his robust body didn’t seem to be a burden or cumbersome in the slightest.
“Hmm?” Needless to say, Duan Ling Tian was shocked by the robust young man’s words.
He knew of Chen Wei’s strength.
Fourth level of the Void Interpretation Stage!
Third level Intermediate Fire Concept!
This robust young man that looks to be a little over 30 is capable of defeating Chen Wei with a single move as well?
Duan Ling Tian didn’t detect the robust young man’s cultivation at the first possible moment, and he looked at Chen Wei instead with a gaze that contained slight curiosity as he was curious if what the robust young man said was true.
Chen Wei nodded with a bitter smile, and he squeeze out a few words after a short moment. “Both of you are the same, freaks!”
Duan Ling Tian’s eyes flashed, and he was slightly surprised.
He’d long since been accustomed to being called a freak.
Now, Chen Wei had called the robust young man a freak as well, so the robust young man presumably possessed some strength.
“Duan Ling Tian, you wouldn’t be afraid of fighting me, right?” The robust young man who stood at the center of the practice ground and waited for Duan Ling Tian’s arrival for a long time grunted coldly with a tone filled with disdain.
“Big guy, what’re you saying? How could my Big Brother Duan be afraid of you?” Duan Ling Tian hadn’t even spoken when Ye Xuan was already unable to bear the sight of this. She admired Duan Ling Tian the most, so she was naturally unable to tolerate someone ridiculing her idol.
“Go on, Duan Ling Tian.” Chen Wei smiled to Duan Ling Tian, and then he said via voice transmission, “I only told him that you defeated me with a single move. I didn’t tell him that about the incident where you dealt with eight bandits and the strongest three amongst them were even at the sixth level of the Void Interpretation Stage.” As he finished speaking, Chen Wei had an evil smile on his face as if he was taking revenge maliciously.
Duan Ling Tian shook his head. This Chen Wei wouldn’t be thinking that I have to utilize my soul skill, Thousand Illusions, before I can deal with this robust young man, right?
Ke Zheng didn’t say anything, and he stood at the side while waiting to see the show.
Even though he hadn’t known Duan Ling Tian for too long, based on his understanding of Duan Ling Tian, Duan Ling Tian would absolutely not refuse the challenge of the robust young man.
The facts proved that Ke Zheng was right.
Duan Ling Tian’s figure flashed out to transform into a gust of wind that instantly arrive before the robust young man and stood in confrontation with him. “What’s your name?”
“Want to know my name? You’ll have to defeat me first!” The robust young man stared at Duan Ling Tian with a burning gaze, and his voice was like a thunderclap that rumbled out.
“Oh? Interesting.” Duan Ling Tian started laughing.
“Hey! Big guy, you better not cry when you lose to my Big Brother Duan.” Ye Xuan cried out from the side while laughing, and she desired to stir up trouble.
“Me, lose to him?” The robust young man was infuriated when he heard Ye Xuan, and he roared. “Little girl, open your eyes wide and watch… See how I, Huang Daniu, defeat him!”
“So you’re called Huang Daniu?” Ye Xuan playfully spat out her tongue and said with a smile, “What an unfashionable name, it’s much inferior to my Big Brother Duan.”
“You!!” Only now did Huang Daniu realize that he’d accidentally let his name slip, and he instantly felt slightly angry from his embarrassment.
But he naturally wouldn’t vent his anger on Ye Xuan, who was a harmless little girl, and he stared at Duan Ling Tian as he said with a low voice, “Duan Ling Tian, I’ll let that little girl know today that having a nice name doesn’t mean anything!”
Duan Ling Tian felt a wave of speechlessness when he heard Huang Daniu.
Huang Daniu’s temper was really no different than a child.
“Please go ahead.” Duan Ling Tian looked at Huang Daniu and smiled lightly, and then he indicated that he was already prepared.
Huang Daniu didn’t dally when he heard Duan Ling Tian, and his legs stomped on the ground as two strands of earthen yellow energy gushed out to push him to flash directly towards Duan Ling Tian.
The earthen yellow energy was precisely the combination of his Origin Energy and Earth Concept, and it transformed into material energy of the earth.
In the sky, the energy of the heavens and the earth roiled to finally converge into 160 ancient horned dragon silhouettes that charged menacingly towards Duan Ling Tian along with Huang Daniu.
Duan Ling Tian’s expression finally turned to shock when he saw these 160 ancient horned dragon silhouettes.
Never had he imagined that Huang Daniu was actually so formidable!
It had completely exceeded his expectations.
Huang Daniu’s speed was so swift that Duan Ling Tian’s eyes were slightly unable to catch up, and he hurriedly pierced his Spiritual Force into the soul brand in the depths of his soul to execute his soul skill.
Along with a dim light flashing in the depths of Duan Ling Tian’s eyes, an illusory space appeared out of thin air, and it enveloped down with Duan Ling Tian at its center and practically enveloped half of the practice grounds.
Huang Daniu just happened to be within this area.
Huang Daniu had arrived nearby Duan Ling Tian, and the first he raised up was almost about to smash down, but in the next moment, his figure swiftly stopped moving.
Subsequently, Huang Daniu turned around to charge towards the side, and his fist that moved menacingly along with him smashed out, causing vast earthen yellow energy to sweep out and give rise to waves of ear piercing explosions of the air.
The airflow in the air was suppressed and flashed about before spreading out to form waves of piercingly cold gales.
“Fifth level Void Interpretation Stage, when his Origin Energy explodes out completely, it’s comparable to the strength of 70 ancient horned dragons… Fifth level Intermediate Earth Concept is comparable to the strength of 60 ancient horned dragons. Coupled with him fighting on the ground, he’s able to obtain assistance from the energy of the earth which is half the strength of his fifth level Earth Concept, and it’s comparable to the strength of 30 ancient horned dragons.”
“Even if he doesn’t use a spirit weapon, he’s capable of exerting a strength comparable to the strength of 160 ancient horned dragons on the ground… Even if it’s a fifth level Void Interpretation Stage martial artist that has similarly comprehended fifth level Intermediate Concept, the martial artist would probably be unable to withstand a single strike of his!” Duan Ling Tian took a deep breath, and he was shocked by Huang Daniu’s strength as well.
Even if it was amongst the younger generation of the entire Five Element Sect, Huang Daniu would probably be able to be ranked at the top with his strength.
If Duan Ling Tian didn’t utilize his soul skill, Thousand Illusions, he would really not be a match for Huang Daniu.
Bang! Bang! Bang! Bang! Bang!
Every single punch of Huang Daniu’s that smashed out contained a vast earthen yellow energy that swept out like numerous furious and roaring earth dragons.
But unfortunately, they struck the air every single time.
“An illusory realm?” Suddenly, a surprised voice sounded out.
Subsequently, an aged figure appeared outside the practice grounds. It was a one-armed old man, and it was precisely the Wood Peak’s elder, Yang Ling.
“Senior Brother.” Ke Zheng looked respectfully at Yang Ling.
“Martial Uncle.” Chen Wei bowed respectfully and reverently.
“Both of you knew since long ago?” Yang Ling’s eyes flashed as he glanced at Duan Ling Tian who stood in the practice grounds with a composed expression, and then he looked at Ke Zheng and Chen Wei.
He was able to discern that Ke Zheng and Chen Wei weren’t the slightest bit surprised by this scene before them, and they obviously knew of it since a long time ago.
“Senior Brother.” Ke Zheng nodded, and then he said, “That’s an illusory realm constructed by Duan Ling Tian’s Innate Ability!”
“Innate Ability?” Yang Ling was stunned, and then he seemed to have thought of something, causing his eyes to light up abruptly as his breathing became slightly hurried. “What you mean is… He’s a Variant?”
Yang Ling had heard of Variants and knew that they were existences that were richly endowed by nature and possessed unique Innate Abilities.
“Yes.” Ke Zheng nodded.
“Haha… Good! Ke Zheng, I never imagined that you actually found two young disciples that are so outstanding this time. With their addition, the Wood Peak will surely be able to be ranked second in the Battle of the Five Peaks this time!” Yang Ling laughed heartily and seemed to be extremely delighted.
The reason he said ‘second’ was because Yang Ling knew that even if Duan Ling Tian and Huang Daniu’s strengths were not bad, they weren’t a match for the outstanding disciples of the Gold Peak.
The Gold Peak was the number one peak in the Five Element Sect, and its status remained eternally unchanged.
“Moreover, with their strengths, they’ll surely be able to fight for the biggest benefit for our Wood Peak at that place… If they’re able to obtain the thing the Peak Master requires, then our Peak Master will become the first Martial Monarch Stage expert in the history of our Five Element Sect!” Yang Ling’s eyes glowed, and he seemed to have already seen the scene of the Wood Peak rising once more in the Five Element Sect.
“Martial Uncle, where are those two fellows?” Chen Wei looked at the surroundings and asked slightly curiously.
“Them? They’ve already been killed by me!” said Yang Ling indifferently.
“Hmm?” Ke Zheng and Chen Wei were shocked.
“They were spies the Earth Peak’s Tang Lin placed in our Wood Peak… They wanted draw Duan Ling Tian over to the Earth Peak a few days ago, and they even promised him a grade two spirit weapon and a seventh level Concept Fragment.” Yang Ling’s eyes flickered with cold lights as he explained.
“What?!” Ke Zheng and Chen Wei were greatly shocked when they heard this.
“I truly never imagined that I misjudged them… But Tang Lin is really going too far! Not only did he place spies in our Wood Peak, he even wanted to draw over a disciple of our Wood Peak to his Earth Peak.” Ke Zheng’s expression was extremely gloomy, and his eyes flickered with cold lights that seemed ready to swallow his enemies at any moment.
“It isn’t the first time they’ve done this… But Duan Ling Tian is not bad indeed. If it was me, then perhaps I would have been moved by the grade two spirit weapon and seventh level Concept Fragment, but he wasn’t.” As he finished speaking, Yang Ling revealed a smile.
Grade two spirit weapon!
Seventh level Concept Fragment!
“Our Wood Peak will absolutely not treat him shabbily.” Ke Zheng looked at Duan Ling Tian, and the cold lights in his eyes vanished gradually to be replaced by a gratified expression.
“I was already pleasantly surprised when you found Duan Ling Tian for the Wood Peak… Yet I never imagined that you’d find another young expert… Huang Daniu’s strength isn’t bad. I was inferior to him all those years ago when I was his age.” As he looked at Huang Daniu that flashed about ceaselessly in the practice grounds while attacking the air, the smile on Yang Ling’s face grew wider.
