Translator: EndlessFantasy Translation Editor: EndlessFantasy Translation
Duan Ling Tian seemed like he did not hear what the male disciple from Anicca Sect said.
He gazed at the other six who were surrounding him and said, “The six of you… just come at me together!” When the six young powerhouses from second-rate forces heard what Duan Ling Tian said and saw the disregard on his face, their faces changed dramatically, and all of them were completely enraged by it.
A disciple from a third-rate force challenging the six of them from second-rate forces?
“Since you wish to die, we’ll help you with it.”
“We’ll let you know, disciples from third-rate forces like you are similar to ants in the eyes of disciples from second-rate forces like us.”
“It’s as easy as killing chickens or cutting grass for us to kill you!”
Six of the disciples the from second-rate forces attacked simultaneously as they struck at Duan Ling Tian.
They fully exerted their Origin Energies, and their Concepts followed like shadows as they released the spirit weapons in their hands and gave it their best shot. They charged toward Duan Ling Tian with great momentum.
Each of them had several hundreds of ancient horned dragons’ silhouettes at the space above them as they charged toward Duan Ling Tian who was surrounded in the middle.
More than three thousand ancient horned dragons’ silhouettes formed a siege and lunged toward Duan Ling Tian’s position with their fangs and claws bared.
Boom! Boom! Boom! Boom! Boom!
The full force from the six second-rate forces’ disciples caused the air to compress rapidly, and a series of air explosion that sounded as loud as exploding mines resounded.
When the air explosions sounded, jets of airwaves rolled out in all directions and turned into gusts of strong wind. Everyone’s robes billowed and fluttering sounds could be heard.
“Kill!” The spirit weapons in the hands of the six disciples from second-rate forces seemed to turn into death scythes at that moment as they headed for Duan Ling Tian, trying to reap his life.
The female Anicca Sect’s disciple looked on calmly from the side.
In her opinion, it was impossible for the purple-clad young man, Duan Ling Tian, to survive the attacks of the six young powerhouses from the second-rate forces.
However, when her gaze inadvertently landed on the other two bystanders, she realized they were looking sympathetically at the six young powerhouses from the second-rate forces that were with her.
“En?” Her heart immediately sank, and she had an ominous premonition.
Was the purple-clad young man strong enough to deal with the six of them?
She felt a little absurd on second thought.
A disciple from a third-rate force, even if he was the No.1 among the youths, it was still impossible to fight six young powerhouses who were not inferior to her.
Nevertheless, she was stunned in the very next moment. Her face turned red as if her throat was being choked.
Her eyes were wide as she stared at the scene before her, incredulity and amazement filled her eyes.
What did she just see?!
Under the siege of the six young powerhouses as strong as him, the purple-clad young man casually stepped upward.
A sword that exuded a devastating aura then appeared in his hands.
‘This is definitely not a grade two spirit sword!’ A thought instantly appeared in her subconscious mind.
What surprised her the most was the subsequent move from the purple-clad young man.
He exerted his Origin Energy that continued transforming into a vast amount of khaki energy entwined with bolts of purple lightning along with gusts of green wind that were solidifying.
Apart from that, there was a swift and piercing aura on the purple-clad young man.
“Sword Concept!” The female Anicca Sect disciple was very familiar with it since she was a martial artist who had comprehended the Sword Concept.
‘He has comprehended so many Concepts? All of them seem to be at a high level too.’ Within a few breaths’ time, the female Anicca Sect’s disciple only had time to figure out this much.
In the next moment, she witnessed an unforgettable scene. It was a scene that haunted her for the rest of her life and made her feel grateful for the choice she made today.
The female Anicca Sect’s disciple clearly saw as the purple-clad young man raised his hand and swung his sword. A frightening sword qi turned around as fast as a flash of lightning, and it lasted very briefly.
Shortly after, all the six young powerhouses, who were charging toward him with great momentum, were slashed at their waists into two halves. Their incomplete corpses smashed together due to inertia.
Everything happened in a blink of an eye, all six of them died without time for any one of them to even scream.
The female Anicca Sect’s disciple completely froze.
She only realized what had happened after a while. Her face was filled with horror as she muttered, “Senior brother Peng Bao… I owe you my life once again!”
She knew if she did not back down when the purple-clad young man mentioned Peng Bao, there would have been more than six deaths. She would not have been able to stay alive.
Boom! Boom! Boom! Boom! Boom!
Pieces of incomplete corpses fell on the ground and quickly dyed the ground red like a river of blood, and it was dreadful.
The two Empyrean Temple’s disciples were shocked and pale as their bodies trembled.
Although they had expected the scene before them would happen, they still could not help but feel frightened when they witnessed it.
The six young powerhouses might be disciples from second-rate forces, but to them, the strength of Duan Ling Tian from Five Element Sect had surpassed ordinary disciples from second-rate forces.
They were no match for Duan Ling Tian’s strength unless they were the best among the younger generation from the second-rate forces!
As for the best among the younger generation from second-rate forces, although they had never seen any, they could still identify that the six people who attacked Duan Ling Tian were not at that level.
The six of them would have been at most the better ones among the youths from the second-rate forces.
However, Duan Ling Tian’s ability to instantly kill six First Level Void Transformation disciples from second-rate forces with one move had strike fear into their hearts.
“Duan Ling Tian’s strength seems to have increased.” They came to the same conclusion as they looked at each other. The depths of their eyes were filled with a fear that came from the bottom of their hearts.
“You’ve overestimated yourselves!” As Duan Ling Tian’s coolly glanced at six of the incomplete corpses on the ground, a hint of coldness hung on the corner of his mouth.
His Spiritual Energy had identified the level of cultivation of the six of them. They were all First Level Void Transformation martial artists who were nothing before him.
Waves of Origin Energy rolled out as Duan Ling Tian raised his arms, he kept the grade two spirit weapons and Spatial Rings that belonged to the six of them. These were the trophies and fruits of his labor.
Then, Duan Ling Tian casually glanced at that female Anicca Sect’s disciple and two of the Empyrean Temple’s monk disciples.
“Duan Ling Tian, we won’t tell anyone that you’ve acquired a Profundity Fragment,” the two Empyrean Temple’s monk disciples hurriedly said when they saw Duan Ling Tian’s gaze. They bit their fingers and quickly made an oath with their blood on the Ninety-Nine Heavenly Tribulation.
Duan Ling Tian was speechless when he saw that.
When did he ask them to make an oath?
He knew in his heart that the news of him acquiring a Profundity Fragment was intentionally leaked. It was safe to assume that most of the young powerhouses in the Martial Emperor’s secret treasure already knew about it.
Apart from those uninformed, everyone else must have known.
“No matter who it is… Those who hit below the belt must be repaid with my endless anger!” Duan Ling Tian’s eyes turned cold as the anger in his heart skyrocketed.
Shou! Under the watchful gazes of both of the Empyrean Temple’s monk disciples and the female Anicca Sect’s disciple, Duan Ling Tian moved and disappeared before their eyes in just a second as if he had vanished into thin air.
Only then did the three of them heave a sigh of relief.
In front of Duan Ling Tian, they felt oppressed from the bottom of their hearts.
He was a chilling God of Slaughter!
When they looked at the six incomplete corpses before them, their faces paled again, and a hint of fear that came from the bottom of their hearts shone in their eyes.
The female Anicca Sect’s disciple looked at the two Empyrean Temple’s monk disciples and asked calmly, “Both of you… knew that he was so strong?”
“Of course! He killed forty-eight young disciples from third-rate forces with only two swords when he entered the Martial Emperor’s secret treasure… He’s a freak!”
“I have to say, you made the right choice… Otherwise, you would’ve ended up like them,” said the two Empyrean Temple’s monk disciples as their gazes landed on the remains stacked in a river of blood in front of them and involuntarily shuddered again.
“Killed forty-eight young disciples from third-rate forces with two swords?” The female Anicca Sect’s disciple could not help but narrow her eyes.
Those who were sent into the Martial Emperor’s secret treasure would have been the stronger ones among the younger generation of third-rate forces’ disciples, they would not be weak.
However, to kill forty-eight young disciples from third-rate forces with merely two swords, she knew she would not be able to achieve that with her strength.
Even if she was able to kill them all, she would not be able to do it so simply and swiftly.
“Duan Ling Tian, Duan Ling Tian… Senior brother Peng Bao, what kind of freak did you meet?” A bitter smile hung on the corner of the female Anicca Sect’s disciple’s mouth.
If Duan Ling Tian did not mention Peng Bao in a timely manner, and she did not withdraw from the battle because Peng Bao had saved her life before, she would have been more than dead!
Naturally, Duan Ling Tian did not have the time to figure out the Empyrean Temple’s monk disciples’ and the female Anicca Sect’s disciple’s state of mind.
He continued to search for the directions to the central area of the Martial Emperor’s secret treasure.
Obviously, he was also trying to deduce who was the person that framed him.
‘Knows my name and my background… The person who framed me must have been from one of the six major forces that entered the Martial Emperor’s secret treasure with me.’
‘Nineteen disciples from Skywolf Fort was killed by me as soon as we entered the Martial Emperor’s secret treasure… Could it be Zi Shang who spread the news?’ Duan Ling Tian furrowed his brows as the thought arose.
In his opinion, this was the most viable possibility. Although he had killed Zi Shang, who knew if Zi Shang had already framed him by spreading the news of him possessing a Profundity Fragment before that.
“No!” Very soon, Duan Ling Tian suddenly thought of something and shook his head.
