Chapter 1744: The Shameless Luo Brothers
Translator: EndlessFantasy Translation Editor: EndlessFantasy Translation
Naturally, Duan Ling Tian and Luo He’s battle did not come to a ‘real’ draw. After all, Duan Ling Tian had only used the True Origin Consolidated Beast whereas Luo He had used his True Origin Consolidated Territory.
In fact, Duan Ling Tian was holding himself back. Otherwise, with his current strength, he could have easily defeated Luo He just by using his True Origin Consolidated Beast. He did not do so because he did not want to expose his trump card so early.
Since so many people thought he had broken through to the peak of the Refined Saint Stage, then he would maintain his strength at the peak of the Refined Saint Stage with all his might. An ordinary Martial Cultivator at the peak of the Refined Saint Stage would not be able to defeat a Mastery Refined Saint Stage Martial Cultivator by using the True Energy Consolidated Beast technique. They would be evenly matched at most.
“The peak of the Refined Saint Stage!”
“Ling Tian has actually broken through to the peak of the Refined Saint Stage!”
As it turned out, things were going according to Duan Ling Tian’s wish. After his first fight with Luo He, everyone present on the scene thought he was a Martial Cultivator at the peak of the Refined Saint Stage.
‘This guy! It’s fine if he has made a breakthrough, but he doesn’t want to admit it.” Wang Fei Xuan shook her head and looked at Duan Ling Tian shyly although there was a tiny hint of resentment in her eyes.
“The peak of the Refined Saint Stage!” Luo He’s expression changed dramatically. He did not expect Ling Tian had already broken through to the peak of the Refined Saint Stage. A Martial Cultivator at the peak of the Refined Saint Stage was not someone he could fight alone no matter how ordinary or weak the Martial Cultivator was.
Luo Shan who was observing at the side had a slightly more dignified expression on his face. “Ling Tian has actually made a breakthrough!”
Since Duan Ling Tian had shown the public his strength at the peak of the Refined Saint Stage, he did not intend to stop after one failed strike. He moved and shot toward Luo He like a specter.
“Luo He, be careful!” Luo Shan’s expression changed, and he quickly reminded in a timely manner.
Even without Luo Shan’s reminder, Luo He had already sensed the impending danger heading his way and intended to dodge it immediately.
However, as a Mastery Refined Saint Stage Martial Cultivator, how could he dodge a preemptive strike from a Martial Cultivator at the peak of the Refined Saint Stage. Duan Ling Tian was charging toward Luo He at the maximum speed a Martial Cultivator at the peak of the Refined Saint Stage would possess.
As the sound of a loud explosion sounded, under everyone’s watchful eyes, Duan Ling Tian appeared standing in Luo He’s place. Luo He, on the other hand, had been sent flying before he fell to the ground. His appearance was disheveled.
From the beginning until the end, the True Origin in Luo He’s body was suppressed by Duan Ling Tian’s True Origin. He could not mobilize it at all.
Silence descended on the entire scene.
Luo He was the one who provoked Ling Tian and issued a challenge to him. In the end, he was even sent flying with just a blow.
“If Ling Tian didn’t fool around with Luo He by using the True Origin Consolidated Beast in the beginning, I think Luo He would’ve been defeated in one move.”
“Isn’t it obvious?”
“This Luo He is too overconfident. He brought this upon himself!”
Most of the disciples of Mystical Sky Mansion had hints of mockery in their eyes as they looked at the disheveled Luo He who finally stood up. They were not polite with their words at all. More and more people began to mock him until eventually, more than 90% of the people present on the scene were doing so.
Perhaps, many of them were not a match for Luo He. However, so many people were mocking him, they were not afraid Luo He would retaliate. It was impossible for him to retaliate against everyone present after all.
After Luo He stood up, his face turned purple before it turned pale. He could not say anything at all. At such a time, what else could he, as the loser, say?
“Ling Tian!” At this moment, Luo Shan spoke up, successfully garnering everyone’s attention. He looked at Duan Ling Tian and said in a low voice, “First, I have to congratulate you. After entering the Spirit Pool, you managed to break through to the peak of the Refined Saint Stage… Since you’ve broken through to the peak of the Refined Saint Stage, it’s normal that my brother and I are not a match for you. However…”
Before Luo Shan finished speaking, Duan Ling Tian interrupted him and said, “However, if I’m willing to accept a challenge from both of you joining forces and defeat both of you, then both of you will submit to me. Is that it?”
Once Duan Ling Tian finished speaking, all the Heaven Palace’s disciples threw Luo Shan a dirty look. If it was like Duan Ling Tian said, then Luo Shan was really shameless!
In the Mystical Sky Mansion’s Heaven Palace, who did not know that when the Luo Brothers joined forces, they were able to defeat quite a number of powerhouses at the peak of the Refined Saint Stage.
Luo Shan frowned. He did not expect Duan Ling Tian to know what he was going to say. However, he had no way out at this point so he nodded and said, “That’s right! Naturally, if you don’t dare to accept the challenge, you can refuse it. Even if you refuse it, no one would say anything since you’re indeed stronger than any one of us.”
No one expected Luo Shan to be so frank. Although it was shameless, it was very honest and blunt.
Luo He who had recovered slightly after consuming a few Healing Medicinal Pills looked at Duan Ling Tian and asked in a deep voice, “Ling Tian, do you dare to fight us brothers?”
Since Duan Ling Tian was already at the peak of the Refined Saint Stage, he was not ashamed of losing. However, if there was a chance for him to defeat Duan Ling Tian and break his spirit, he definitely would not pass up the chance. He did not care that it was despicable that he had to join forces with his brothers to do so.
“Ignore them!” When Luo He finished speaking, a familiar voice sounded in Duan Ling Tian’s ears. It was Wang Fei Xuan. “These Luo Brothers are strong individually. They’re two of the strongest people among the Heaven Palace’s Mastery Refined Saint Stage disciples… Once they join forces, someone who had just broken through to the peak of the Refined Saint Stage is not a match for them.”
“In the Heaven Palace, the number of disciples at the peak of the Refined Saint Stage who’s defeated by both of them are in double digits,” Wang Fei Xuan said solemnly.
At this moment, another familiar voice was transmitted into Duan Ling Tian’s ears. It was Guo Lu. “Junior Brother Ling Tian, they’re as shameless as I thought they would be… You can just ignore them.”
Once he finished speaking, Guo Lu looked at Luo Shan and said mockingly, “Luo Shan, just say you want to win by numbers and cut the bullshit! Both of your ages would total up to more than a hundred, and yet, you’re not ashamed to say you want to join forces with your brother to challenge a new disciple who’s below the age of forty?”
Once Guo Lu finished speaking, even more people looked at the Luo Brothers with a peculiar look.
“Guo Lu’s right. The Luo Brothers are shameless!”
“In my opinion, they aren’t willing to submit and wants to seek revenge by joining forces.”
“Shameless! So shameless! People whose age that totals up to more than a hundred could bear to join forces to challenge someone who’s not even forty years old yet.”
Many people spoke up and mocked them. The Luo Brothers’ faces turned pale before it turned purple.
Naturally, when they looked at Guo Lu, there were hints of coldness in their eyes. If it was not because there were so many people here and the strict rules in the Mystical Sky Mansion, they would have exploded and hit or kill Guo Lu.
Luo Shan took a deep breath before he looked at Duan Ling Tian and said, “Ling Tian, I said you can refuse the challenge.”
“Ling Tian, if you don’t dare to accept then you’re a coward and a bastard!”
“Ling Tian, if you don’t accept it, you’re not a man!”
Simultaneously, two voices were transmitted into Duan Ling Tian’s ears. They were the Voice Transmissions from the Luo Brothers. It was obvious they were trying to anger and provoke him into accepting the challenge.
After listening to their Voice Transmissions, Duan Ling Tian snorted as his expression darkened. His cold eyes landed on the Luo Brothers, “Even if you didn’t provoke or anger me through Voice Transmissions, I wouldn’t have refused the challenge. Since you want to join forces and challenge me, then go ahead!”
When Duan Ling Tian’s words were heard by the people present, it struck them like a bolt of lightning during a sunny day.
Most people did not expect Duan Ling Tian to accept the challenge.
You’re being too reckless!”
“Junior Brother Ling Tian!”
At the same time, Wang Fei Xuan and Guo Lu’s Voice Transmissions entered Duan Ling Tian’s ears.
Both of them sounded anxious. They did not expect Duan Ling Tian would accept the Luo Brothers’ challenge even after they had advised him against it.
“Ling Tian… a-agreed to it?”
“He’s too reckless!”
“Indeed, he’s too reckless. Anyone of the Luo Brothers is almost invincible among the Heaven Palace’s Mastery Refined Saint Stage disciples…With the synergy between twins, when they joined forces, the numbers of disciples at the peak of the Refined Saint Stage they defeated are in the double digits.
“It’s impossible for someone who has just broken through to the peak of the Refined Saint Stage to defeat the Luo Brothers when they join forces.”
“I’m afraid Ling Tian doesn’t know this. Otherwise, he wouldn’t have accepted the challenge.”
“I think Ling Tian knows. He’s close to Guo Lu, and Guo Lu must have reminded him… I guess he accepted the challenge because the Luo Brothers provoked him through Voice Transmission.”
“Earlier, he did say the Luo Brothers provoked him through Voice Transmission… The Luo Brothers are too shameless! To get Ling Tian to accept the challenge, they stooped so low. They’re an embarrassment to the Heaven Palace!”
“Even so, Ling Tian’s too reckless… It’s obvious what the Luo Brothers’ intentions are by provoking him… He’s still too young.”
The crowd began to discuss among themselves.
Many people looked at the Luo Brothers disdainfully, and many shook their heads as they looked at Duan Ling Tian. All of them felt Duan Ling Tian was being too reckless.
“Haha… Good! Good!” After hearing that Duan Ling Tian had accepted their challenge, the Luo Brothers laughed happily, especially Luo He. He was so happy, it was as though he could already see Duan Ling Tian lying on the ground after being defeated by him and his brother.
