Chapter 924: Crimson Moon Sect’s Provocation
Translator: EndlessFantasy Translation Editor: EndlessFantasy Translation
“Let’s go!” Guo Chong, the Sect Leader of Five Element Sect, shouted lightly. He continued leading the group of Five Element Sect people, including Duan Ling Tian, to fly forward to their destination.
Very soon, they reached a hill that had a vast area. It stretched as far as the eyes could see.
Suddenly, one of the Five Element Sect disciples cried out in surprise as if he had discovered something, “There’s someone over there!”
Everybody immediately looked in the direction where he was staring, and they soon saw a group of people flying towards them swiftly from afar. In just a blink of an eye, this group of people arrived before them.
The other party had also noticed them as well. Each and every one of them came to a halt and stood confrontationally before them.
All of these people added together totaled to 24 people. There was a middle-aged man, three old men, and twenty young men and women that appeared like they were below forty years of age.
Other than the middle-aged man who was dressed casually, the three old men and the twenty young men and women were all wearing a red robe that had gold or copper trims. The three old men were wearing robes with gold trims while the twenty young men and women were wearing red robes with copper trims. The badges pinned on their chests looked like a reddish moon.
“Uniforms?” Duan Ling Tian raised his brows. Skywolf Fort immediately came to his mind.
The group of Vice Fort Masters from the Skywolf Fort and their disciples were all usually in some sort of uniform too.
‘Skywolf Fort, we’ll eventually settle the bill between us once and for all!’ The moment he thought about Skywolf Fort, Duan Ling Tian’s eyes immediately flashed with crimson red.
The scene when Ta Mu died from blocking an attack for him when he was hunted by the five Vice Fort Masters of Skywolf Fort was still vivid in his mind.
A blood debt had to be repaid with blood!
“It’s the people from Crimson Moon Sect!” A loud clamor erupted next to Duan Ling Tian’s ears. Many of Five Element Sect’s disciples started to whisper to each other.
“The Crimson Moon Sect?” Duan Ling Tian finally understood when he saw the crimson moon badge pinned on the chests of the group of people before him.
He was not unfamiliar with the Crimson Moon Sect at all.
Originally when he was still staying with the Ye Family at Driftcloud Town, Ye Xuan had mentioned Crimson Moon Sect to him before.
For this reason, he knew that Crimson Moon Sect, just like Five Element Sect, was also one of the three major forces in the eastern district of the northern desert.
Their strength was in no way inferior to Five Element Sect.
“Sect Leader Ren,” Guo Chong greeted lightly when he saw the middle-aged man who led the group. “I didn’t expect that Crimson Moon Sect has also received the news.”
“That middle-aged man, who’s dressed casually, with a medium-built body and ordinary looking features, is the Sect Leader, Ren Ji. It’s said that his cultivation base has already reached the peak of the Void,” a familiar voice entered Duan Ling Tian’s ears instantly when he looked at the middle-aged man.
It was none other than Chen Wei who was using Voice Transmission to tell him about the middle-aged man’s identity.
“Likewise, I didn’t expect news to travel so fast to your Five Element Sect! However, only a capable man will be able to obtain the secret treasure left behind by the Martial Emperor!” Ren Ji said as he swept a glance at Guo Chong indifferently before pausing for a little while.
His sharp gaze swept pass all the twenty young Five Element Sect’s disciples one by one before it landed on Duan Ling Tian, and he burst out laughing, “Sect Leader Guo, looks like you really don’t have any other candidates among the younger generations in Five Element Sect huh? Don’t you think a young boy like him should just stay back and be nursed at home?”
“Hahahahaha…” The moment these words left Ren Ji’s mouth, the three old men behind him and the twenty young men and women burst out laughing instantly. Their laughter was full of mockery.
“Sect Leader is right! Such a young boy should just stay home and drink milk instead!”
“Look at him, I’m sure he’s only around 25 years old. Is that trash seeking for his death in the Martial Emperor’s secret treasure?”
“Perhaps he feels that dying in the Martial Emperor’s secret treasure is something to be proud of!”
Many of the Crimson Moon Sect’s disciples commented without restraint as they mocked Duan Ling Tian with their intentionally raised voice. They deliberately followed the Sect Leader of Crimson Moon Sect’s example and wanted to shame the Five Element Sect on purpose.
What a blatant humiliation!
Despite the calm look on Duan Ling Tian’s face, his narrowed eyes gleamed coldly. It imperceptibly exposed his current feelings.
His gaze was focused on the few Crimson Moon Sect’s disciples who were mocking him happily without restraint.
When the opportunity presented itself later, he would definitely kill these people off without mercy!
His dignity should never be trampled on by anyone.
Guo Chong’s expression turned very ugly.
The three forces of the eastern district in the northern desert had no tolerance for each other all along. If anyone of them had the ability to annihilate the other two forces, they would definitely not wait until the next day to make their moves.
However, Guo Chong did not expect the Crimson Red Sect to be so blatant during an occasion like this. The moment they met, they had immediately mocked his Five Element Sect’s disciples.
“Sect Leader Ren, as the dignified leader of a sect, don’t you think it’s a little inappropriate to treat a junior like this?” Guo Chong asked in a deep voice.
“Inappropriate? No, I don’t think so!” Ren Ji replied nonchalantly with a calm expression. “If he thinks what I said is incorrect, he can always come out and challenge any one of the twenty young disciples from my Crimson Moon Sect! If he can beat any one of them, I, Ren Ji, the Sect Leader of the Crimson Moon Sect, will take back my words from earlier!”
The instance the words left Ren Ji’s mouth, a purple figure had already flew past the group of Five Element Sect’s people and stood right in front of Guo Chong, the Sect Leader of Five Element Sect.
It was none other than Duan Ling Tian.
“Boy, you really dare to come out huh?” When Ren Ji saw Duan Ling Tian stepped out from the Five Element Sect’s group, his eyes were immediately filled with surprise before he continued to mock him, “I have to remind you though, you might lose your life by being so blindly courageous and impulsive!”
“Sect Leader Ren, do you intend to take back your words from earlier willingly?” Duan Ling Tian’s gaze was extremely calm. Even when he was faced with Ren Ji, the Sect Leader of Crimson Moon Sect, he was neither haughty nor humble. With his indifferent tone, it was like he was talking to a person who was of no significance.
“Huh?” Ren Ji was astounded before bursting into a fit of laughter, “Looks like you intend to seek death then?”
“Lad! Come! Come and challenge me! I’ll fight you!”
“Oy, that boy from the Five Element Sect, come and challenge me if you have the balls!”
The seven Crimson Moon Sect’s disciples who trampled on Duan Ling Tian’s dignity with their words along with Ren Ji’s words earlier were looking at him as they shouted. It was apparent from the smug look on their faces that they looked down on Duan Ling Tian.
As he hovered in the sky, Duan Ling Tian narrowed his eyes and swept his gaze across the seven Crimson Moon Sect’s disciples who were still clamoring about. His cool voice resonated emotionlessly, “Since the seven of you want to fight me, then I’ll just go along with your wishes! All seven of you, come out now and fight with me together!”
The moment Duan Ling Tian’s words left his mouth, not only were the seven Crimson Moon Sect disciples stunned, the remaining thirteen Crimson Moon Sect’s disciples were taken aback by his words as well.
The three old men who were wearing red robes with gold trims and Ren Ji, the Sect Leader of Crimson Moon Sect, were also stunned.
On the other hand, on the side where the Five Element Sect stood, the group of people under Guo Chong the Sect Leader did not even have a change in their expressions. It was like the scene before their eyes did not even warrant any change of emotions in their hearts.
‘Hurmph! This guy is trying to show off again!’ Cha Bai, the Peak Master of Fire Peak, and his direct disciple, Hu Fei, snorted secretly.
“Huh?” At this moment, Ren Ji, the Sect Leader of Crimson Moon Sect, had also noticed the group of Five Element Sect people’s expressions. His heart jolted instantly.
Could it be that he had made a wrong judgment?
When Ren Ji thought of this, he eyed the purple-clad young man in front of him from top to bottom with great attention. The eyes were so sharp as if it could pierce through everything were tightly locked on Duan Ling Tian as though he wanted to see through him thoroughly.
Duan Ling Tian’s face remained indifferent, neither happy nor angry, as he faced Ren Ji’s scrutiny.
“Hahahaha…” At the same time, the seven Crimson Moon Sect’s disciples who were just called out by Duan Ling Tian regained their senses and burst into a fit of laughter. It was as if they had heard the biggest joke in the world.
“Wanting to challenge seven at the same time alone? Seven of us simultaneously?”
“Is he even sane?”
The seven Crimson Moon Sect’s disciples looked at Duan Ling Tian with a sneer, the words that came out of their mouths were even ruder than before.
At this time, even among the other thirteen Crimson Moon Sect disciples, many people could not help but burst out laughing as well.
Naturally, there were also a few of Crimson Moon Sect’s disciples who were observant and had noticed the calm and indifferent looks on the group of Five Element Sect’s people. When they shifted their glances towards Duan Ling Tian who looked as calm as before, a hint of dread could be seen in their eyes.
“What? You dare not?” The expression on Duan Ling Tian’s face remained unchanged even when faced with the repeated provocations from the seven Crimson Moon Sect’s disciples. Hovering in the sky, the purple robe on his body billowed from the light breeze as he stared at the seven people before his eyes.
“What? Did you just say that we dare not?!”
“Just because we didn’t bare our fangs, you think that we’re some sick cats huh?!”
“Brothers! Since he looks down on us so much, we must teach him a good lesson!”
The seven Crimson Moon Sect’s disciples were completely infuriated by Duan Ling Tian. One by one, they flew out and surrounded Duan Ling Tian as they glared at him viciously.
Ren Ji, the Sect Leader of Crimson Moon Sect, frowned. He was beginning to vaguely feel that something was not right. That purple-clad Five Element Sect’s disciple seemed to be a bit overconfident.
Was he really that confident in himself?
Or was he deliberately trying to look mysterious?
At this moment, Ren Ji saw the calm expressions on the Five Element Sect’s people again, and he began to feel uncertain as well. However, since things had already progressed to this point, how could he stop it now?
After all, he was the person who asked the other party to come out for a challenge. If he stopped the fight now, would it not be like slapping his own face?
The three old men wearing the gold-trimmed red robe in Crimson Moon Sect also began to look more sullen. Similar to Ren Ji, they could also faintly feel that something was wrong.
“Sect Leader Ren, I remember you told me earlier that I might lose my life due to blind courage right?” Duan Ling Tian, who was surrounded by the seven Crimson Moon Sect’s disciples, looked at Ren Ji as he nonchalantly said, “Then, does this mean that you agree for me to fight with your seven Crimson Moon Sect’s people to death, Sect Leader Ren?”
Upon hearing this, Ren Ji’s face fell instantly. However, there was no way for him to refute it at all.
He indeed did say it previously.
“You lad! Looks like you really want to die huh?!”
“We’ll help you if you really want to die!”
The seven Crimson Moon Sect’s disciples who surrounded Duan Ling Tian roared loudly one after another. The Origin Energy on their bodies whirled, and their Concepts immediately rose.
