Translator: EndlessFantasy Translation Editor: EndlessFantasy Translation
As soon as Cha Bai’s words left his mouth, everyone’s eyes immediately fell on Duan Ling Tian.
Hu Fei continued standing at the same spot. His body trembled slightly as he gritted his teeth. A pair of blood red eyes that were filled with bitter hatred glared at Duan Ling Tian intensely.
At this moment, Hu Fei was like a poisonous snake that was lurking in the darkness, ready to attack Duan Ling Tian at any given time.
“Don’t worry, Peak Master Cha Bai! Since I said that I’ll give you an explanation, I’ll definitely give you one…” After Duan Ling Tian put the Seventh Level Thunder Concept Fragment away, he took a long look at Cha Bai before he said, “Still, I have to thank you first for giving me the Concept Fragment, Peak Master Cha Bai!”
“Hurmph!” Cha Bai’ snorted. His face darkened as Duan Ling Tian tore his wound open. “Cut the nonsense! I really want to see what kind of explanation you’ll give me!”
“Peak Master Cha Bai, you want an explanation on how I knew your useless disciple’s Concept did not make any progress, right?” Duan Ling Tian asked while he looked at Hu Fei. There was no lack of provocation in his words.
Hu Fei, who had focused all his anger towards Duan Ling Tian for having no progress in his Fire Concept, immediately had a change in his expression the moment he heard Duan Ling Tian call him useless.
“Duan Ling Tian! You’re going to hell!” Hu Fei could not hold it in any longer. With a hysterical cry, he charged towards Duan Ling Tian at a high speed. It was similar to a lurking poisonous snake that was agitated and was ready to bite its prey without any warning.
The moment Hu Fei charged out, the Origin Energy on his body erupted. After it merged with his Seventh Level Intermediate Fire Concept, it transformed into a flame that soared up into the sky and enveloped his body in it.
Hu Fei currently resembled a fiery behemoth whose bloody mouth was wide open as he pounded towards Duan Ling Tian as if he was about to swallow him whole.
The Heaven and Earth Energy in the sky swirled while the Heaven and Energy Phenomenon began to solidify.
Along with Hu Fei’s movement, 180 silhouettes of ancient horned dragons pounded towards Duan Ling Tian at a high speed. It had a very imposing demeanor.
When Hu Fei, who resembled a fiery behemoth with the strength of 180 ancient horned dragons, charged out, he left a trail of explosions behind him. It caused a surge of terrifying airwaves as he passed through.
Along with the airwaves, a hurricane raged and blew all of the furnishings in the palace all over the place. Some paintings were even torn off the walls and fell onto the floor with a loud ‘crash’.
In just a blink of an eye, Hu Fei who had transformed into a fiery flame had already reached in front of Duan Ling Tian. With a hysterical cry, he punched out a fist like a meteor falling from the sky.
The fist that was enveloped with flame crashed towards Duan Ling Tian directly. He resembled a fiery behemoth that punched out a fist without mercy.
With the power that was contained in the fist, Duan Ling Tian would die, if not crippled, if he had gotten hit.
“Hu Fei!” Horror dawned on Cha Bai instantly. He had never thought that Hu Fei would attack Duan Ling Tian just like that.
In his opinion, Duan Ling Tian’s innate ability was very powerful. Previously, he had easily wrapped Hu Fei and the Nangong Twins from Gold Peak around his fingers. Now that Hu Fei suddenly attacked him, wasn’t Hu Fei just digging his own grave?
Just as everybody present, including Cha Bai, thought that Duan Ling Tian would use his innate ability to create an illusion to delude Hu Fei again, Duan Ling Tian made a move that took them all by surprise.
Duan Ling Tian did not bother to dodge at all in the face of that menacing Hu Fei. Origin Energy began to erupt from his body.
The vast Origin Energy quickly transformed into streaks of thunderbolts like purple snakes that wrapped around his body. It made him look like a Thunder God that had just descended from the sky.
Boom! Boom! Boom! Boom! Boom!
As the thunderbolts wrapped around Duan Ling Tian’s body clashed against each other, a series of low rumbles from the thunder reverberated in the air, and it shook everyone to the core.
A deafening thunder suddenly shook the entire palace and caused three young disciples from the Water, Fire and Earth Peaks who had a slightly lower cultivation base to immediately put their hands over their ears.
Everyone saw Duan Ling Tian also sent out a punch without any intention to dodge as Hu Fei charged over with his fiery fist. It was obvious that he wanted to clash directly with Hu Fei.
When Duan Ling Tian punched out his fist, streaks of flashing purple thunderbolts pulsated around his fist and interlaced to become an electrified wire netting.
Under the watchful eyes of the others, Duan Ling Tian and Hu Fei’s fists finally met each other.
The fist that was entwined with streaks of purple thunderbolts like electrical snakes clashed with the fist that was wrapped in flames that looked like fiery snakes. It instantly created a loud thundering noise.
Boom! Boom! Boom! Boom! Boom!
The moment when Duan Ling Tian and Hu Fei’s fist collided with each other, the streaks of purple lightning bolts also collided with the burning flames as it set off a series of horrendous explosions.
The moment the explosion was set of, hurricanes surged up again as it swept all over the place. The location Duan Ling Tian and Hu Fei were standing at were in the eye of the hurricane.
Cracks started to appear on the floor below their feet, and it stretched out in all directions. It covered the entire palace in just a blink of an eye. It resembled a gigantic spider web.
Furthermore, the quakes had also shattered many of the windows on both sides of the palace. The pillars in the palace were also being shaken as if they were about to collapse at any time.
However, nobody paid any attention to this at all.
At this moment, all of the people present were staring fixedly at the two young men who clashed directly with their fists. Their robes were billowing, and their hair ties were ripped apart causing their long hairs to fly.
Boom! Boom! Boom! Boom! Boom!
Under the watchful eyes of the spectators, the streaks of dense purple thunderbolt constantly intertwined and produced a series of terrifying thunder sound. It clamped down on the burning flames in one fell swoop and snuffed it out completely.
A clear and crisp bone-cracking sound resonated in the air. The people present at the scene shuddered upon hearing it.
In the next moment, everybody could see Duan Ling Tian’s body suddenly leaned forward and the dense purple thunderbolts that were intertwined with his fist rolled over the flames on Hu Fei’s fist like he was crushing dry weeds.
The instance the bone-cracking sound echoed in the air, Hu Fei let out a grunt of pain.
In the next second, he was sent flying like an arrow leaving the bow before he was slammed against the wall of the palace as if he was pushed by a tremendous force.
After that loud thunderous sound, Hu Fei’s body slid down the wall. His body was curled up in a fetal position as he trembled in pain.
The moment he inhaled, he spat out mouthfuls of blood. The fresh blood around his body turned into a small bloody stream around him. It truly created a ghastly sight.
The entire place was deadly silent. Suddenly, a nonchalant voice broke the silence, “What a pleasant feeling!”
It was none other than Duan Ling Tian who was muttering to himself while he stretched his limbs after sending Hu Fei flying with his fist. The dense interlocking thunderbolts on his fist had already vanished without a trace.
Everyone present was completely petrified.
Cha Bai, the Peak Master of Fire Peak, looked horrified as he rushed towards Hu Fei to check on his wounds.
Meanwhile, everyone else immediately shifted their gazes to Duan Ling Tian as soon as they regained their senses.
“Good job, lad!” Qi Yu’s eyes lit up as he stared at Duan Ling Tian in astonishment.
Qi Yu originally thought Duan Ling Tian would use his innate ability and create an illusion when he saw Duan Ling Tian was about to attack Hu Fei. It did not even cross his mind that Duan Ling Tian would not use his innate ability. Moreover, he did not even bother to dodge. He actually directly confronted Hu Fei and sent him flying with just a blow.
Duan Ling Tian’s cultivation base was on par with Hu Fei’s. They were both at the Seventh Level Void Interpretation. However, the Concepts that they had comprehended were definitely not on the same level.
Hu Fei’s comprehension was at the Seventh Level Intermediate Fire Concept. However, the single Thunder Concept that Duan Ling Tian had cast earlier could actually suppress Hu Fei. That was at least an Eighth Level intermediate Thunder Concept, or perhaps a Ninth Level Intermediate Thunder Concept.
“D-Duan Ling Tian… You bastard! You actually have such a powerful Thunder Concept?” Huang Daniu’s eyes were as wide as saucers. Slightly stunned, he stared at Duan Ling Tian. He was completely taken aback by the strength that Duan Ling Tian had displayed earlier.
That punch was like a punch from the Thunder God. It instantly sent Hu Fei, who was charging forward menacingly, flying back! Duan Ling Tian’s blow was clean and neat. Even the Heaven and Earth Phenomenon above his head did not have time to form yet.
“That was at least an Eighth Level Intermediate Thunder Concept!” Guo Chong narrowed his eyes. Amazement could be seen on his face as he looked at Duan Ling Tian.
Duan Ling Tian, a Wood Peak disciple, was a Variant that possessed an innate ability. His cultivation base was at the Seventh Level Void Interpretation, and he had comprehended the Third Level Intermediate Wind Concept.
This was his understanding of Duan Ling Tian prior to this day.
Previously, he had thought that Duan Ling Tian’s strength relied mostly on his innate ability. If he did not have this innate ability, let alone his own two direct disciples, Duan Ling Tian could not even be compared to Hu Fei from Fire Peak.
However, Duan Ling Tian had given him the surprise of his life today.
Without relying on his innate ability, he used just one blow to directly confront Hu Fei and sent Hu Fei, who had the advantage from striking first, flying. The entire process was neat and efficient. It was not sloppy at all.
“So it turns out that this Duan Ling Tian did not only comprehend the Wind Concept but the Thunder Concept as well! The Third Level Intermediate Wind Concept is the weaker Concept that he has comprehended. The Intermediate Thunder Concept that he has is actually his true trump card!” Tian Gu gasped in surprise and muttered to himself.
“And to think that I actually thought the most powerful Concept that he has is the Third Level Intermediate Wind Concept! Looks like this time, the Concept that he has raised by entering the Profound Assimilation Formation is actually the Thunder Concept!” Yu Fang inhaled deeply before continuing, “In other words, his Intermediate Thunder Concept was actually already at the Sixth or Seventh Level even before he entered the Profound Assimilation Foundation.”
Due to the reason that Duan Ling Tian had shown his Wind Concept when he first arrived at Wood Peak of the Five Element Sect, it was no surprise that the other Peak Masters knew that he had comprehended the Third Level Intermediate Wind Concept.
