The Ninth Level Sword Concept Fragment!
The moment they heard Chen Feng’s words and saw the Concept Fragment in his hand, many of the Five Element Sect’s and Empyrean Temple’s people were shocked to the core.
They did not think that the Sect Leader of Sun Moon Sect would have such a great deal of courage. With their status, a Ninth Level Concept Fragment was considered extremely valuable.
After all, their status was nothing but a third-rate force in the Cloud Continent, and the strongest among them only had a comprehension at the Ninth Level Void Transformation Concept.
The Ninth Level Concept Fragment in their hands was either left behind by their deceased seniors or obtained by killing a martial artist who had comprehended the Ninth Level Void Transformation Concept.
For a third-rate force, it was not a simple matter for them to kill someone who had comprehended the Ninth Level Void Transformation Concept.
— and, right now, Chen Feng, the Sect Leader of Sun Moon Sect had taken out a Ninth Level Sword Concept Fragment to be the betting wager for the battle between Lu Kai, the disciple of Sun Moon Sect, and Duan Ling Tian, the disciple of Five Element Sect.
If Duan Ling Tian won the battle, he would have to give the Ninth Level Sword Concept Fragment to the Five Element Sect.
When Guo Chong saw Chen Feng took out a Ninth Level Sword Concept Fragment as the betting wager, the Sect Leader of Five Element Sect’s face instantly lit up from the surprise. He could not help but exclaim out loud in astonishment, “That’s so cool of you, Sect Leader Chen Feng!”
“How is it? Sect Leader Guo, are you satisfied with the wager that I took out?” When Chen Feng saw the astonished look on Guo Chong’s face, he thought that Guo Chong was taken aback by the wager. A hint of disdain could be seen in his eyes.
“Stingy!” Before Guo Chong could even open his mouth, a brazen voice broke the silence by calling Chen Feng, the Sect Leader of Sun Moon Sect, stingy.
Taking out a Ninth Level Concept Fragment as a wager was stingy?
Who was this person who was so high handed?
All the eyes from the three forces immediately shifted towards the source of the voice.
They saw a young man fully clad in purple. It was none other than Duan Ling Tian.
“Did Duan Ling Tian just call the Sect Leader of Sun Moon Sect stingy?” Many of the Empyrean Temple’s people’s eyes widened in shock. Disbelief was clearly written on their faces.
In their opinion, let alone a mere Five Element Sect’s disciple, even the Sect Leader of Five Element Sect would find the Ninth Level Concept Fragment to be an extraordinary object.
Even the Sect Leader of the Five Element Sect did not dare to call a person who put up a Ninth Level Concept Fragment as a wager stingy.
“Is Duan Ling Tian crazy? That’s a freaking Ninth Level Concept Fragment for God’s sake!”
“I think he said that deliberately to make things difficult for the Sect Leader of Sun Moon Sect. No matter what wager the Sect Leader of Sun Moon Sect takes out, he will still call the Sect Leader stingy so he can use it as an excuse to withdraw from the battle.”
“This Duan Ling Tian from Five Element Sect is too sinister if that’s true.”
Many of the Empyrean Temple’s monk disciples whispered to one another. Although their voices were not too loud, everyone present at the scene could still hear their words.
The Five Element Sect’s disciples merely snorted at the words by the Empyrean Temple’s people. They were not bothered by the words at all.
They were very clear about Duan Ling Tian’s strength. They knew that it was absolutely impossible for him to retreat in the face of a disciple from Sun Moon Sect, let alone retreating with such an indirect method.
“What is Duan Ling Tian doing? That’s a freaking Ninth Level Concept Fragment that the Sect Leader of Sun Moon Sect took out! How could he call him stingy?” Huang Daniu, Nangong Yi, Tan Huan, Tian Zhen and the other exchanged glances and saw the same suspicion in each other’s eyes.
The Peak Masters of Fire, Water, and Earth Peaks also had the same doubtful look on their faces.
Only Qi Yu, the Peak Master of Wood Peak, had a knowing smile playing on the corner of his mouth. It was as though he already knew what Duan Ling Tian planned to do next. “This little guy is quite greedy, huh?”
Guo Chong, on the other hand, was stunned into silence for a moment before being hit by a realization. He did not say anything else as he stared intensely at Duan Ling Tian’s back.
“How ridiculous! How dare you call our Sect Leader stingy? That’s a Ninth Level Concept Fragment for goodness sake! I think this must be the first time you’ve seen one. Is that the case, you little boy!” Many of the Sun Moon Sect’s disciples finally regained their senses and glared at Duan Ling Tian as they mocked him.
“Well, if you’re that capable, why don’t you come up with a Ninth Level Concept Fragment too? Or you know, some other things that are even more valuable… Otherwise, you’re just a coward who’s afraid of battling Senior Brother Lu Kai!”
“You’re asking him to take out a Ninth Level Concept Fragment? I don’t think he’ll be able to take any out even if we kill him!”
“In my opinion, he’s afraid of Senior Brother Lu Kai, that’s why he’s trying to find an excuse to avoid a battle with Senior Brother Lu Kai.”
A group of Sun Moon Sect’s disciples broke into a clamor of discussion. From their words, it was obvious that they scorned Duan Ling Tian, the disciple of Five Element Sect.
In their opinions, how good could he be even if he was wildly talented and had a high comprehension when he was only 25 years old?
Chen Feng raised his hand, and the group of Sun Moon Sect’s disciple finally quieted down. However, the gazes that were trained on Duan Ling Tian were still filled with disdain that originated from the bottom of their hearts.
Chen Feng narrowed his eyes as he glared at Duan Ling Tian. He asked in a deep voice, “Did you just call me stingy?”
“Isn’t that so?” Duan Ling Tian seemed oblivious to the Sun Moon Sect’s disciples’ mocking. Now that he had heard Chen Feng’s question, he answered as a matter of course, “A dignified Sect Leader of Sun Moon Sect merely took out a Ninth Level Concept Fragment as a betting wager. Don’t you think that you’re stingy?”
“Hurmph!” A sharp gleam flashed across Chen Feng’s eyes. With a snort, he replied, “This Ninth Level Concept Fragment in my hand is just the first wager. If Sect Leader Guo finds this inadequate, I can add more wager on top of this.”
“Of course it’s not enough!” The moment the words left Chen Feng’s mouth, Duan Ling Tian immediately replied, “Let alone our Sect Leader, even a nobody like me feels that the betting wager that you took out is not enough.”
“You’ve said so yourself that you’re a nobody. You think you can represent the Sect Leader of Five Element Sect?” Chen Feng snorted.
“Naturally, I can’t represent our Sect Leader, but I can bet against you myself!” Duan Ling Tian lifted his brow as he said this word for word.
“You? Betting against me on your own?” Upon hearing Duan Ling Tian’s words, Chen Feng could not suppress his bewilderment.
“Hahahaha…. That’s so funny! This little boy from the Five Element Sect said that he wants to bet against our Sect Leader on his own!”
“Does he really think that Ninth Level Concept Fragments are so easy to come by?”
“At first, he said that our Sect Leader is stingy. Now, he said that he wants to bet against our Sect Leader on his own! I’d like to see for myself what exactly he’ll use as a wager to bet against the Sect Leader.”
The Sun Moon Sect’s disciples broke into an uproar once again. Each of them was looking at Duan Ling Tian with a sneer as they waited for him to make a fool of himself.
“This Duan Ling Tian is crazy!”
“If he can’t take out anything better than the Ninth Level Sword Concept Fragment, he’ll only embarrass himself!”
“He’ll definitely make a fool out of himself!”
The monk disciples from the Empyrean Temple shook their heads while they threw pitiful glances at Duan Ling Tian.
Hui Kong, the Abbot of Empyrean Temple, stood by the side and stared at Duan Ling Tian kindly. Even when Duan Ling Tian had boasted, he did not seem surprised at all.
On the other hand, many of the disciples from Five Element Sect were smiling.
Although they did not know much about what was going on, they knew that Duan Ling Tian really had no lack of Ninth Level Concept Fragments. Just a short while ago, he had just obtained two fragments that originated from the recently killed Ren Ji, the Sect Leader of Crimson Moon Sect.
“That’s right! I’ll bet against you myself!” Duan Ling Tian nodded his head solemnly as he stared directly into Chen Feng’s eyes.
“Lad, do you know the value of this Ninth Level Sword Concept Fragment in my hand? I can tell you that not everything can compare to the worth of this Concept Fragment.” Chen Feng sneered as he toyed with the fragment in his hand.
“Well, I don’t know much, but I know that the value of these two added together is definitely worth more than that Ninth Level Sword Concept Fragment in your hand!” In the face of Chen Feng’s sneer, Duan Ling Tian still remained calm. With a lift of his hand, two fragments appeared in his palm, one was blue, and the other was purple.
Be it the blue or purple fragment, the colors were remarkably abstruse. It emitted an aura that made people shiver in fear.
“Sect Leader Chen Feng, what do you think?” Duan Ling Tian smiled faintly as he toyed with the two fragments in his hand.
Just at the moment when Chen Feng’s gaze landed on the Concept Fragments in Duan Ling Tian’s hand, the few Vice Sect Leaders of Sun Moon Sect standing next to Chen Feng turned pale instantly as they cried out.
“The Ninth Level Wind Concept Fragment!”
“The Ninth Level Thunder Concept Fragment!”
On the Empyrean Temple’s side, Hui Jing could not help but gasp. He said in a hoarse voice, “It really is the Ninth Level Wind Concept Fragment, and the Ninth Level Thunder Concept Fragment!”
Earlier, he could feel cold sweat forming when he saw Duan Ling Tian’s licentious conduct. He thought that Duan Ling Tian would make a fool of himself before the public’s eyes.
However, he realized at this moment that Duan Ling Tian dared to do that earlier because he was completely confident in himself. He could clearly see this from the two Ninth Level Concept Fragments that he casually took out.
“T-Those really are two Ninth Level Concept Fragments?”
The Sun Moon Sect’s disciples’ mocking faces froze up completely in an instant. One by one, their faces turned red as though they had been choked. They did not utter a single word at all for a long time.
“My Lord! Who is this Duan Ling Tian? How is it possible that he just casually took out two Ninth Level Concept Fragments?”
“Is he the Sect Leader of Five Element Sect’s illegitimate son or something?”
“How exactly did the Ninth Level Concept Fragments come into his possession?”
Each and every one of the monk disciples from Empyrean Temple was staring at the two Concept Fragments in Duan Ling Tian’s palm with their red eyes. How they wished they could reach out and snatch them away from him.
On the other hand, the people from Five Element Sect appeared calm and collected.
‘This Duan Ling Tian actually chose this time to take out the two Ninth Level Concept Fragments. He wouldn’t scam another Ninth Level Concept Fragment from the Sect Leader of Sun Moon Sect, would he?’ Huang Daniu was stunned, but he could faintly guess his intention.
There were undoubtedly many other people who had the same thought as him. For example, the Peak Masters of Water, Fire, and Earth, the Nangong Twins, Tan Huan, Tian Zhen and the rest.
‘Duan Ling Tian, you want to scam the Sect Leader of Sun Moon Sect huh? I’ll make sure you won’t be able to do as you wish!’ A light flashed across Hu Fei’s eyes as a sneer appeared by the corner of his mouth.
