Translator: EndlessFantasy Translation Editor: EndlessFantasy Translation
Along with the gusts of green hurricanes that appeared around Tian Zhen’s body, the Heaven and Earth Energy quivered in the sky above his head. Gradually, the Heaven and Earth Phenomenon started to solidify into form.
Silhouettes of ancient horned dragons began to take form as well.
The number kept increasing.
Finally, the number stopped at 80 dragons.
“Seventh Level Intermediate Wind Concept!” The crowd’s eyes were slightly astonished when they saw Tian Zhen’s concept.
After all, breaking through to the Seventh Level Intermediate Wind Concept from the Fifth Level Intermediate Wind Concept was not as easy as entering the Sixth Level Intermediate Wind Concept from the Fourth Level Intermediate Wind Concept.
Tian Zhen finally let out a sigh of relief after he made sure that he had indeed comprehended the Seventh Level Intermediate Wind Concept.
“Excellent! Excellent!” Seeing the huge progress that his son made, Tian Gu let out a wide smile.
With a complicated look, Yu Fang cast a glance at Tian Gu and forced a smile as she congratulated him, “Congratulations, Peak Master Tian Gu.”
“Thank you, Peak Master Yu Fang. I believe that Tan Huan has comprehended the Seventh Level Void Interpretation Concept as well, just like my useless son here,” Tian Gu smiled in response.
“Thank you for the blessing,” Yu Fang nodded her head. Then, with an anticipatory look, she turned towards Tan Huan instead.
At this moment, Tan Huan who could feel Yu Fang’s eyes on her, had beads of sweat forming on her forehead.
The feelings that she had right now was exactly the same feelings that Tian Zhen had earlier. Although she could faintly feel that the Water Concept that she had comprehended had been elevated, she still did not know exactly how much progress it had made.
“Tan Huan.” After hearing the conversation between Tian Gu and Yu Fang, along with Yu Fang’s gaze, everybody’s eyes instantly fell on Tan Huan. At the same time, Guo Chong looked at her as well.
“Yes, Sect Leader,” Tan Huan responded. The water vapors on her body started to spread out and transformed into a series of turquoise ripples — that was the Water Concept that she had comprehended.
Turquoise ripples intertwined with her body and transformed into an aqua blue halo that shrouded her entire body.
Meanwhile, the Heaven and Earth Energy in the sky started to fluctuate and finally came together to form silhouettes of ancient horned dragons.
Finally, the silhouettes of the ancient horned dragons in the Heaven and Earth Phenomenon stopped increasing.
“Seventh Level Intermediate Water Concept!”
Looking at the 80 silhouettes of the ancient horned dragons on top of Tan Huan’s head, the crowds’ eyes shone with glee.
Tan Huan’s progress was the same as Tian Zhen’s.
Seeing that she had comprehended the Seventh Level Void Interpretation Concept as well, Tan Huan let out a sigh of relief before smiling at Yu Fang, “Master, I’ve succeeded!”
Yu Fang nodded her head in satisfaction.
After Tan Huan, Guo Chong called out the name of the other female disciple from Water Peak.
This female disciple had also comprehended the Water Concept, and before she entered the Profound Assimilation Formation, she had only comprehended the Third Level Intermediate Water Concept.
At this moment, after coming out of the Profound Assimilation Formation, she had comprehended the Fifth Level Intermediate Water Concept.
“You!” Next, Guo Chong called out to the other male disciple from the Fire Peak that came with Hu Fei.
Just like the male disciple from Earth Peak, the Concept that this Fire Peak disciple had comprehended was raised by two levels from the Fourth to Sixth Level.
“Hu Fei!” Soon after that, Guo Chong looked at Hu Fei.
The moment Guo Chong called out Hu Fei’s name, Duan Ling Tian’s eyes immediately lit up. A small smirk crept up to the corner of his mouth. The smirk that was full of cynicism.
When they were still in the Profound Assimilation Formation, he had used his Spiritual Energy to control the Profound Assimilation Formation and ripped out 10% of the four Concept Energy that he needed. Due to that, the Spiritual Energy that he had merged with the Profound Assimilation Formation had become more or less depleted.
At that time, he had used the remaining Spiritual Energy for one final task and issued a simple command to the Profound Assimilation Formation.
The command was to prevent Hu Fei from touching the Concept Energy that he needed!
In other words, when they were in the Profound Assimilation Formation, other than Duan Ling Tian who had obviously gotten the biggest gain, the other eight people had gotten significant benefits from it as well. However, Hu Fei was the only one who did not get any benefits at all!
Due to Duan Ling Tian’s foul play, Hu Fei who had entered the comprehension state in the Profound Assimilation Formation was no different from when he was comprehending outside of the formation.
‘I really can’t wait to see the expression on his face when he discovers that his Fire Concept has no improvement at all!’ Duan Ling Tian thought in his heart as the smile that was playing on the corner of his mouth turned wider.
Huang Daniu who was standing by Duan Ling Tian’s side happened to see the smile lingering on the corner of his mouth. With his Voice Transmission, he asked curiously, “Duan Ling Tian, what are you smiling at?”
In the meantime, Huang Daniu looked towards the direction Duan Ling Yian was looking at under the urging of his curiosity. His eyes landed on Hu Fei who just had his name called out by Guo Chong.
“Does it have anything to do with Hu Fei?” Huang Daniu asked.
“It’s nothing,” Duan Ling Tian shook his head and replied via Voice Transmission.
However, Huang Daniu refused to believe him. His eyes were locked firmly on Hu Fei. Something told him that Duan Ling Tian was hiding something from him.
His intuition told him that something must be going on with Hu Fei.
After Hu Fei was called out by Guo Chong, everyone focused their eyes on him, making him the spotlight of the entire scene.
Hu Fei was the direct disciple of the Peak Master of Fire Peak. In the Five Element Sect, a group of Five Element Sect’s disciples had secretly given him a nickname — Ungrateful Bastard.
Although it had been ten years since Hu Fei switched to join Fire Peak and betrayed his master whom he was indebted to for saving his life, and Wood Peak that had trained him into who he was now, he was still being held in contempt by the Five Element Sect’s disciples.
However, Hu Fei’s talent and comprehension were notorious in the Five Element Sect, just a level lower than that of the Nangong Twins from Gold Peak, even though his reputation was not very good.
Yu Fang smiled as she asked Cha Bai,”Peak Master Cha Bai, your Hu Fei has always been second only to the Nangong Twins from Gold Peak among the younger generation of the Five Element Sect. Before this, he already has a comprehension at the Seventh Level Intermediate Fire Concept. I’m sure it’s not a problem for him to enter the Ninth Level Intermediate Fire Concept after coming out of the Profound Assimilation Formation right?”
“Peak Master Yu Fang, you can’t say it like that,” Just as a smile appeared on Cha Bai’s face and he was about to answer Yu Fang’s question, Tian Gu suddenly chimed in without warning, “What you said is outdated. Now, among the younger generation of the Five Element Sect, we have the addition of Duan Ling Tian and Huang Daniu remember? Their talents are definitely not inferior to Hu Fei’s.”
Duan Ling Tian!
The moment Tian Gu’s words left his mouth, Yu Fang was stunned for a moment. Then, she quickly looked at Duan Ling Tian and Huang Daniu before smiling sheepishly, “Ah, I’ve completely forgotten about them.”
Cha Bai’s face turned glum immediately.
Although he did not like what Tian Gu said, he could not refute it because that was indeed an indisputable fact.
Just as most of the people shifted their attention to Tian Gu and Yu Fang’s conversation, Cha Bai announced loudly without warning. From his words, it was obvious that he had full confidence in Hu Fei. “Before Hu Fei entered the Profound Assimilation Formation, the Fire Concept that he comprehended was just a step away from the Eight Level Intermediate Fire Concept. After coming out from the Profound Assimilation Formation this time, I’m sure he has already comprehended the Ninth Level Intermediate Fire Concept!”
Sure enough, the moment Cha Bai’s words came out of his mouth, everyone shifted their attention back to him.
“Congratulations, Peak Master Cha Bai!” Yu Fang congratulated Cha Bai.
“Congratulations!” Guo Chong and Tian Gu also congratulated him.
All eyes immediately turned towards Hu Fei again. Guo Chong smiled as he announced, “Hu Fei, you can begin now.”
Hu Fei nodded his head. From around his body, faint flames started to appear and gradually solidified.
“Wait a minute!”
Right at this moment, a loud voice resonated and shocked Hu Fei so much that he shuddered for a second. The flames that were rising from around his body that had yet to solidify completely were extinguished instantly.
Everyone, including Hu Fei, immediately shifted their attention to the direction where the voice came from.
Over there a young man stood proudly. A purple-clad young man.
“Duan Ling Tian, what’re you doing?” Hu Fei’s face darkened instantly as rage started to fill his eyes.
Originally, when his master had said such confident words about him, although he was still feeling somewhat anxious, he decided to summon up his courage and was ready to demonstrate his Fire Concept. From what he could see, since everyone had made such a huge progress as well, there was no reason for him to be the exception.
Due to this reason, he was confident that he had comprehended the Ninth Level Intermediate Fire Concept. Although he could feel that his Fire Concept was no difference from before he entered the Profound Assimilation formation, in his mind, that was only because he just came out of the Formation and his body was still not fully adjusted.
“Qi Yu, is this how you educate the disciples of Wood Peak?” Cha Bai scoffed as he swept a cold glance at Duan Ling Tian before he looked at Qi Yu.
Perplexed, Qi Yu looked towards Duan Ling Tian and ignored Cha Bai completely.
“Duan Ling Tian, is there anything?” Guo Chong frowned.
Duan Ling Tian’s loud cry earlier was also equivalent to interrupting himself. He could not suppress the displeasure that rose up in his heart.
“I’m sorry, Sect Leader. I just want to have a few words with Peak Master Cha Bai. I’ll feel suffocated if I don’t get this off my chest,” Duan Ling Tian flashed an apologetic smile at Guo Chong before he turned to look at Cha Bai.
Right away, everyone, including Guo Chong, shifted their attention to Cha Bai. They were curious about the thing that Duan Ling Tian wanted to say to him.
“What do you want to say?” Cha Bai’s face was very glum.
“Peak Master Cha Bai, it’s like this. I’m a person who can’t tolerate any lies in front of me. Just now you said that Hu Fei has comprehended the Ninth Level Intermediate Fire Concept right? However, I don’t believe this at all. I think that you’re just bluffing.” In the beginning, Duan Ling Tian’s tone was still fairly calm, but his tone was filled with the smell of gunpowder as he came to the end of his sentence.
The moment Duan Ling Tian finished his sentence, everyone on the scene became completely dumbfounded.
Did this Duan Ling Tian just accuse Cha Bai, the Peak Master of Fire Peak, of bluffing?
The words that he really had to get off his chest was actually this?
Everyone, including Qi Yu, began to shift their attention back to Duan Ling Tian. All they could think about at this moment was how brave this Duan Ling Tian was.
Cha Bai was still the Peak Master of Fire Peak no matter what. Right now, in front of so many people, Duan Ling Tian had just accused Cha Bai and said that he was bluffing!
What a blunt provocation!
“How dare you?!” Cha Bai’s face turned dark immediately as he roared in fury.
“Peak Master Cha Bai, I’m a person who really can’t tolerate even a small unreasonable thing. I’m sorry if I’ve accidentally offended you,” Duan Ling Tian smiled nonchalantly as he looked at Cha Bai.
