Chapter 933: An Extravagant Gamble
Translator: EndlessFantasy Translation Editor: EndlessFantasy Translation
“Sect Leader Chen Feng, since I’m taking out two pieces of Ninth Level Concept Fragments as betting wagers for the battle between your Sun Moon Sect’s disciple, Lu Kai and I, don’t you think you should take another Ninth Level Concept Fragment out as well?” Duan Ling Tian stared at Chen Feng as he enunciated every single one of his words distinctly.
Chen Feng’s face turned somber immediately as soon as he regained his senses.
It did not cross his mind that the purple-clad young man before him would be able to take out two Ninth Level Concept Fragments. Moreover, he wanted to bet with Chen Feng on his own by using the two Ninth Level Concept Fragments as the betting wager.
Naturally, he was not a fool seeing as he was the leader of Sun Moon Sect.
Since the other party dared to make such a bet and was willing to take out two Ninth Level Concept Fragments as the wager, he must be very confident in himself.
Chen Feng was instantly caught in between a rock and a hard place.
It was not difficult for him to take out another Ninth Level Concept Fragment. However, if the purple-clad young man won the battle, not only would Sun Moon Sect embarrass themselves, they would lose two Ninth Level Concept Fragments as well.
He took out the Ninth Level Concept Fragment earlier because he was confident his sect would definitely win the battle. He wanted to use his Ninth Level Concept Fragment to win another Ninth Level Concept Fragment from the hands of the Sect Leader of Five Element Sect.
However, the subsequent development of the matter was beyond his expectation.
First, the purple-clad young man before him called him stingy and actually stepped forward to bet with Chen Feng independently. On top of that, he wanted to use two Ninth Level Concept Fragments as the betting wager.
He had to admit that he was a little hesitant when he saw the confident look on the other party’s face.
Although he refused to believe that a young man at such a young age could defeat Lu Kai, his Sun Moon Sect’s disciple who was at the Ninth Level Void Interpretation Stage, he immediately became very cautious the moment he recalled that the matter involved two Ninth Level Concept Fragments.
“What now? Sect Leader Chen Feng, don’t tell me you dare not bet?” Duan Ling Tian saw through Chen Feng’s thoughts when he saw him hesitating. Duan Ling Tian deliberately raised his voice so that everyone could hear him clearly as he burst into a fit of laughter. When he reached the end of his sentence, a contemptuous smirk could be seen playing on the corner of his mouth.
Dare not bet?
Chen Feng became enraged the moment he heard Duan Ling Tian’s words and noticed the gazes around him.
However, it seemed like his rage was immediately put out by a splash cold water as he turned calm and collected without any warning.
He knew that the other party was using the provocation tactic to goad him into accepting the bet!
At this moment, a Voice Transmission suddenly resounded in his ears from afar.
“Sect Leader Chen Feng, you mustn’t agree to this bet with Duan Ling Tian! Don’t be fooled by his appearance! He’s actually a martial artist at the First Level Void Transformation Stage. Apart from comprehending a type of Void Transformation Concept, he has even comprehended three other Ninth level Interpretation Concepts! Duan Ling Tian is trying to provoke you so that you’ll agree to the bet. You must not be fooled by him. Otherwise, your Sun Moon Sect will definitely lose two Ninth Level Concept Fragments!” The Voice Transmission ended without any warning when it reached this point.
The instance Chen Feng heard the Voice Transmission, his face turned ashen immediately.
The First Level Voice Transformation?
Had he comprehended a Void Transformation Concept? Moreover, he had also comprehended three Ninth Level Void Interpretation Concepts?
Chen Feng inhaled deeply as he sized up the purple-clad young man while he continuously asked himself in his heart, ‘Is this Duan Ling Tian really that capable?’
He could not believe this!
In his opinion, it was something that was almost impossible.
It was necessary for a First Level Void Transformation martial artist to comprehend the Void Transformation Concept. However, if he had comprehended another Ninth Level Void Interpretation Concept, he could be considered as a monster in comprehending Concepts!
The Voice Transmission had actually said that Duan Ling Tian was a First Level Void Transformation martial artist who had not only comprehended the Void Transformation Concept but three other Void Interpretation Concepts as well.
It was absolutely absurd!
Chen Feng shook his head. He immediately decided that the other party was trying to deceive him. Moreover, that Voice transmission actually came from the group of Five Element Sect’s people.
Unfortunately, the Voice Transmission came too abruptly. Due to this reason, he could not identify the owner of the Voice Transmission among the Five Element Sect’s disciples.
However, there was one thing that he was completely sure of. He was certain the other party was trying to deceive him.
He could easily guess why the other party was trying to deceive him.
The other party simply did not want him to accept the bet with Duan Ling Tian and wanted him, the Sun Moon Sect, to bend in the face of Five Element Sect. Moreover, the other party also wanted him to embarrass himself in front of the Empyrean Temple.
Although it seemed like the other party was trying to help him retain his two Ninth Level Concept Fragments by doing this, the reason the other party did this was to help Duan Ling Tian and the Five Element Sect if one was to think about it deeply.
This was because if he rejected the challenge now, his disciple would lose the chance to defeat Duan Ling Tian before a big crowd of people. Furthermore, Five Element Sect would win this hands down without a fight, making it easy for them to suppress Sun Moon Sect.
“Duan Ling Tian, I must admit that you’re indeed smart!” As Chen Feng looked at Duan Ling Tian, he told him through Voice Transmission, “You actually know how to make concessions for the sake of advancing huh? You asked someone to exaggerate your strength in front of me so that the Sun Moon Sect and I would withdraw in the face of difficulties, thus letting you and the Five Element Sect win without a fight! If it was someone from the Empyrean Temple who had warned me using the Voice Transmission, I might have fallen for it. However, you actually let your Five Element Sect warn me through Voice Transmission. How foolish is that?!” Chen Feng’s Voice Transmission was filled with disdain.
Duan Ling Tian was stunned for a moment when he heard Chen Feng’s Voice Transmission.
He asked somebody from Five Element Sect to exaggerate his strength in front of Chen Feng through Voice Transmission?
Initially, Duan Ling Tian was somewhat perplexed. He could not suppress his curiosity as he glanced around at the Five Element Sect’s people. Soon enough, he finally found some telltale signs.
The moment he looked at Hu Fei, he noticed that Hu Fei’s gaze seemed to be avoiding him deliberately. The fact that he did not dare to look at him directly was completely out of his character.
“Hu Fei!” A cold gleam flashed across his eyes as the flame of fury in his heart rose up immediately.
He was certain that Hu Fei was the person that sent the Voice Transmission to Chen Feng.
However, it seemed like Chen Feng did not believe Hu Fei at all. This made Duan Ling Tian sighed in relief.
After Duan Ling Tian heaved a sigh of relief, the killing intent in the depth of Duan Ling Tian’s eyes burned even brighter. That killing intent was targeted at none other than Hu Fei.
It was just as he had previously thought, he would not have a day of peace as long as Hu Fei was alive.
“How pitiful! What a pity! Originally, I was a little hesitant when I saw you confidently taking out two Ninth Level Transformation Concepts to bet with me. At that time, I even thought of rejecting that betting wager of yours in order to retain my Ninth Level Concept Fragments even if it means that the Sun Moon Sect and I would make a fool out of ourselves,” Chen Feng’s Voice Transmission that was filled with complacency continued on in Duan Ling Tian’s ears.
“Unfortunately, you asked somebody from Five Element Sect to exaggerate your strength to me through Voice Transmission. I can still accept mild exaggeration, but I can’t believe that he would actually exaggerate to the point that it became ridiculous! For this reason, the person who will be disgraced today will neither be Sun Moon Sect nor I! Instead, it’ll be Five Element Sect and you, Duan Ling Tian!” Chen Feng’s Voice Transmission ended abruptly.
Duan Ling Tian was stunned into silence. Did Hu Fei just inadvertently help him?
If Hu Fei knew that it would turn out this way, he would most likely be so enraged that he would spit out three liters of blood at least.
However, Duan Ling Tian’s killing intent towards Hu Fei did not diminish at all just because of this.
In his heart, Hu Fei was already a dead man. As long as he had the opportunity, he would definitely make sure Hu Fei died in his hands.
Upon hearing Chen Feng’s Voice Transmission, Duan Ling Tian snorted. He deliberately darkened his expression a little.
When Chen Feng saw Duan Ling Tian’s face, a mocking smile appeared on his face instantly. Another piece of Concept Fragment appeared in his palm with just a lift of his hand.
Under the watchful eyes of the others, Chen Feng announced loudly, “Duan Ling Tian, since you wanted to go big, let me accompany you in going big as well! This is a Ninth Level Saber Concept Fragment. Coupled with the Ninth Level Sword Concept Fragment in my hand, these two will become the Sun Moon Sect’s betting wager.”
Chen Feng did not wait for Duan Ling Tian to respond. Instead, he looked at Hui Kong, the Abbot of the Empyrean Temple. “Hui Kong, you bald donkey. Although I’ve never dealt with you before, I’ve heard that you’re a decent man. Today, I would like to invite you to become the witness for the bet between Duan Ling Tian, this disciple of Five Element Sect, and I! As for the betting wagers, I think you should be the one to safe keep them as well.” As he finished his sentence, Chen Feng lifted his hand and tossed the two Ninth Level Concept Fragments to Hui Kong.
After Hui Kong caught the two Ninth Piece Concept Fragments, he put his ten fingers together and said, “Amitabha… Since Sect Leader Chen believes in me, I’ll do as you wish!”
“Duan Ling Tian, don’t you think you should also pass your betting wagers to Hui Kong that bald donkey for safekeeping?” A smirk could be seen playing by the corner of Chen Feng’s mouth as he looked at Duan Ling Tian.
He had chosen to pass the fragments for safekeeping because he was worried Duan Ling Tian would regret his decision later.
If the situation developed until that point, although Duan Ling Tian and the Five Element Sect would make a fool out of themselves, his Sun Moon Sect would not be able to get their hands on the two Concept Fragments in Duan Ling Tian’s hands.
The reason he did that was to make it difficult for Duan Ling Tian to back down from his decision.
Naturally, Duan Ling Tian could still refuse if he wanted to, but the price he would have to pay for his refusal would be extremely high. It would be far higher than the value of the two Ninth Level Concept Fragments.
If Duan Ling Tian really did refuse, it would be difficult not only for him but for the entire Five Element Sect to lift their heads up in the northern desert in the future.
“Good call, Sect Leader Chen Feng!” Naturally, Duan Ling Tian knew what Chen Feng was thinking. After he deliberately showed Chen Feng an expression like he was deep in thoughts, he casually threw the two Ninth Level Concept Fragments in his hand to Hui Kong. “Abbot Hui Kong, thank you.”
After he took the two Ninth Level Concept Fragments, Hui Kong said with his ten fingers interlaced, “Amitabha… You’re most welcome, Little Benefactor Duan.”
“Huh?” When Chen Feng saw Duan Ling Tian passed the two Ninth Level Concept Fragments to Hui Kong without any hesitation, he could not help but furrowed his brows.
However, he quickly unfurrowed his brows again.
In his opinion, Duan Ling Tian was just putting on air to appear impressive.
No matter what, he would never believe that a little boy like Duan Ling Tian would be able to defeat Lu Kai who ranked among the top three among the younger generation of Sun Moon Sect.
At this time, Duan Ling Tian had an aloof expression on his face as he returned to stand before Lu Kai.
“Little Benefactor Duan, Little Benefactor Lu. Although your battle involves the ownership of two Ninth Level Concept Fragments, I hope that the both of you will show restraint,” Hui Kong advised with his fingers interlaced as he looked at Duan Ling Tian and Lu Kai.
