Chapter 885: The Nan Gong Brothers
Translator: EndlessFantasy Translation Editor: EndlessFantasy Translation
As a dark gleam flickered in Duan Ling Tian’s eyes, the Spiritual Energy that he had long accumulated dived into the depths of his soul easily to the Soul Brand and cast his Soul Skill.
In an instant, the Illusory Space rolled out and covered a radius of more than 100 meters. It engulfed Hu Fei who was charging towards him as well.
In the next moment, Duan Ling Tian moved from his position and flew to the side.
At the same time, he looked at Huang Daniu leisurely and told him through Voice Transmission, “Daniu, do as I say…”
Hu Fei who was soaring with flames like an enormous fiery beast missed his target under all the watchful eyes of the audience.
Just when everyone thought Hu Fei was about to pounce again and charge towards Duan Ling Tian, they noticed that Hu Fei who was entirely covered in flames was still standing in the same spot while he looked around in confusion.
A hint of caution could be seen in the depths of his eyes. It was as if he had come across something extraordinary.
At this moment, in Hu Fei’s eyes, he was standing in a vast expanse of desert with nobody around him.
Hu Fei’s face darkened. He immediately knew what had happened to him.
“I didn’t sense any Inscription or Inscription Formation’s fluctuation at all… Could it be that a unique Demon Beast with one-of-a-kind innate talent is trying to plot against me?” This was the first suspicion that rose in Hu Fei’s heart.
In his opinion, since the Illusion that he currently faced was not caused by any Inscription or Inscription Formation, this meant that it had to have come from some Spiritual Energy approach that was similar to a Soul Skill.
The only person among all human being martial artists who could create Illusion through Spiritual Energy approach was none other than the legendary Martial Emperor.
Naturally, he would never think that it was the Martial Emperor who was playing this trick on him.
What a joke!
The Martial Emperor only needed a single thought to kill him. Why would he be playing a trick like this?
For this reason, it had to be the Demon Beast who was creating mischief in the dark.
Apart from that, the Demon Beast’s Spiritual Energy had to be at the Seventh Level Void Interpretation at least.
Otherwise, it would be unable to affect him.
“Don’t use chea…” Just as Hu Fei opened his mouth and was about to say “Don’t use cheap shots if you have balls!”, a strong breeze suddenly blew towards one side of his face, and his face darkened greatly.
Before Hu Fei could even figure what was happening, one side of his face was already slapped loudly. The force even caused his head to turn to the other side. He could not help but spat out a mouthful of broken teeth.
At the same time, that side of his face became completely swollen.
It was obvious that this person had shown no mercy.
‘Who? Who’s that?!”
After Hu Fei, who was stunned by the slap, spat out his broken teeth, he finally regained his senses. The look on his face immediately darkened as the flames on his body soared up again.
Whoosh! Whoosh! Whoosh! Whoosh! Whoosh!
At the same time, a pair of spirit weapon gloves that were made of unknown materials appeared on Hu Fei’s hands.
He raised his hands up and slapped out his palms over and over again, all over his body. It was like an invisible and extensive gigantic dense net that enveloped and protected his entire body.
Wham! Wham! Wham! Wham! Wham!
Hu Fei flung his palms again and again in the air. It caused the airflow in the air to compress. A bloodcurdling explosion could be heard in the air, and it was deafening.
Many solidified palm prints whizzed and landed on one side of Gold Peak’s cliff wall. In a series of loud rumble, dust and sand were also being swept up.
In the sky.
Other than Duan Ling Tian, Chen Wei and Huang Daniu who was hovering in the air quietly, there were no other changes in their expression.
As everyone watched Hu Fei who had gone crazy in the air, each and every one of the Five Element Sect’s disciples were stunned and bewildered.
“Can…C-Can anyone tell me what’s actually happening right now?”
“I-I don’t know! After this Hu Fei charged towards Duan Ling Tian and missed his attack, he’s not continuing his attack. Instead, he just stays in the same spot looking around. It’s like he can’t find Duan Ling Tian at all!”
“What a joke! Duan Ling Tian is just right there. He’s not far away from him at all! How is it possible that he can’t see Duan Ling Tian?”
“Then tell me what’s he doing now? When Huang Daniu got close to him, he didn’t even notice anything! He just took that one slap on his face!”
“Don’t tell me Hu Fei is crazy now?”
The group of Five Element Sect’s disciples was completely stunned. They had absolutely no idea what was happening at the moment.
After a short while, perhaps due to exhaustion, Hu Fei finally slowed down his movements.
“Daniu!” Duan Ling Tian looked towards Huang Daniu and gave him a smile.
Huang Daniu’s eyes lit up instantly. Once again, under the watchful eyes of the spectators, he moved towards Hu Fei and stopped in front of him after a moment. He lifted up his hand again and threw another hard slap towards him.
At that moment, the crowd of Five Element Sect’s disciples who were watching the scene was absolutely horrified. They had chills running down their backs.
Many of them could not help but wonder.
Would Huang Daniu succeed again this time?
Another crisp and loud sound reverberated in the air and answered the question in their hearts.
Hu Fei’s head immediately tilted to the side. Once again, he spat out a mouthful of blood that was mixed with many broken teeth. Many of the Five Element Sect’s disciples could only feel their bodies shuddering in fear.
This Huang Daniu was a little too hard on him, wasn’t he?
The other half of Hu Fei’s originally intact face also became completely swollen at this moment. His entire face was similar to a pig’s face. It was difficult to see his true facial features now.
“No matter who you are… you’ll certainly die! YOU’LL DIE!”
Hu Fei who was slapped twice and became a pig-face kept roaring in anger. At the same time, the speed of his hand movement sped up, and huge palm marks formed a layer of protective enclosure that kept him protected inside.
Perhaps, this was the only way he could get a sense of security that he wanted.
Hu Fei’s roars of anger entered the ears of the Five Element Sect’s disciples who were present at the scene. It startled and astonished them.
“D-Does Hu Fei not know it’s Huang Daniu who slapped him?”
“What the hell is happening actually?! Not only did Hu Fei not notice Huang Daniu’s approach, he even took two of his slaps just like that! What’s worse, he doesn’t seem to know that it was Huang Daniu who slapped him!”
“I-Is he really going crazy?”
“I don’t think he’s crazy! I think he’s going blind!”
Each and every one of the Five Element Sect disciples stared at Hu Fei with their mouth agape. They found the scene that was unfolding before their eyes defied all logic. The situation was totally inconceivable.
Who could tell them what was actually going on now?
“I think he’s not only blind, he’s deaf as well! We’ve said so much and yet, he doesn’t seem to have heard a single word we’ve said!”
“I also think that he’s now blind and deaf!”
“B-But, how did he become like this all of a sudden?”
Other than Hu Fei, Duan Ling Tian, Huang Daniu and Chen Wei, all of the Five Element Sect disciples present on the scene were completely dumbfounded. A look of confusion could be seen on their faces.
Until now, they still did not know what had happened.
When they saw Hu Fei’s movements slowing down again, all of them shifted their eyes back to Huang Daniu. They were all curious which part of Hu Fei he would go for this time.
Duan Ling Tian looked at Chen Wei and asked with a smile, “Chen Wei, do you want to have a go?”
Previously, when Huang Daniu had slapped Hu Fei twice and retreated back to his original position, Duan Ling Tian had noticed Chen Wei’s slight eagerness.
Now that the opportunity presented itself again, he could not help but ask that question.
“Sure!” The moment Chen Wei heard that, his eyes instantly sparkled. In a flash, he proceeded to move towards Hu Fei.
Under Duan Ling Tian’s encouragement, Chen Wei punched out a lightning-like punch. The hit landed directly on Hu Fei’s head, and it sent him flying backward instantly.
Of course, he had already shown some mercy.
Otherwise, he could definitely kill Hu Fei off with just this one blow.
Although he hated Hu Fei to the core and wanted to avenge his Senior Uncle Yang Ling, it had never crossed his mind to take Hu Fei’s life. All that he wanted was to teach him a lesson.
He felt like he was in a dream now that his wish had finally come true.
He reached out and pinched his own thigh. The waves of violent pain that came from his thigh seemed to be telling him:
‘This is not a dream! This is all real!’
“WHO?!” At this moment, Hu Fei who was sent flying with a bloody and badly-battered head looked around in a fluster. However, he did not look at Chen Wei at all.
The crowd of the Five Element Sect’s disciples instantly felt chills running down their spines.
W-Was this Hu Fei possessed?
Nobody knew when, but suddenly, two figures appeared in the sky.
A blue-clad young man and a red-clad young man.
The blue-clad young man had an indifferent look on his face. It was as it had nothing to do with him even if the sky fell down. However, a hint of surprise could be seen in his eyes.
It was like he had noticed something peculiar.
After the red-clad young man returned to his senses from his astonishment, he saw the surprise in the blue-clad young man’s eyes just in time. Curious, he could not help but ask, “What’s wrong? What did you notice?”
“Spiritual Energy.” The blue-clad young man who was usually taciturn opened his mouth. His voice was cold and extremely taciturn.
“Spiritual Energy?” The red-clad young man’s eyes lit up immediately.
“D-Do you mean right now Hu Fei’s acting this way because of Spiritual Energy? Could… C-Could it be that he’s encountering some Illusion?” As he was saying these words, the red-clad young man could not stop himself from guessing.
This time, the blue-clad young man did not answer him. He only stood there in silence. However, the pair of eyes that seemed to be without luster was staring fixedly into the distance on a person.
And that person was none other than the purple-clad young man who was standing in the sky not far away from Hu Fei — Duan Ling Tian.
It was obvious that he had found out that the owner of the Spiritual Energy was Duan Ling Tian.
When the blue-clad young man stared at Duan Ling Tian, Duan Ling Tian also seemed to have noticed something. Without warning, he raised his head up and looked up at the sky.
Within seconds, two figures who were camouflaged in the clouds entered his sight.
Although they were separated by a distance, Duan Ling Tian had eyesight that was far greater than ordinary people. In just a glance, he could clearly see that the two young men before him looked exactly the same.
The blue-clad young man, in particular, was staring at him as if he could see through him completely.
“An Inscription Master?”
Soon after, Duan Ling Tian could feel a faint wave of rippling Spiritual Energy. It came from none other than the blue-clad young man. When he felt this, he could not help but be alarmed by it.
Moreover, Duan Ling Tian was able to confirm one thing from the blue-clad man’s Spiritual Energy’s ripple.
The blue-clad young man’s Spiritual Energy was in no way weaker than his.
Duan Ling Tian was very clear about the meaning behind this.
“C-Could it be that these two are the Nangong Twins whom those Five Element Sect’s disciples mentioned earlier?”
Duan Ling Tian’s heart jumped.
