Chapter 1753: The Eminent Saint Stage Disciples On Mystical Sky Rankings
Translator: EndlessFantasy Translation Editor: EndlessFantasy Translation
The Eminent Saint Stage disciples on the Mystical Sky Ranking from the Main Mansion.
Upon hearing Wang Fei Xuan’s Voice Transmission, Duan Ling Tian’s gaze turned cold. When it shifted to Zhao Ji again, a terrifying killing intent could be seen in his eyes.
Originally, he had only attacked because he wanted to teach Zhao Ji a lesson to let him know that not everyone could be bullied by him. At the very least, not his, Duan Ling Tian, friends!
Although he was unwilling to admit it, he had already regarded Wang Fei Xuan as a friend in his heart. How could he possibly tolerate it when he saw his friend being teased and bullied in front of him. If he could tolerate such a sight, he would no longer be Duan Ling Tian.
As though a gust of wind had blown past, Duan Ling Tian disappeared from where he was standing.
“Junior Brother Ling Tian!” Wang Pi’s expression turned grave as he tried to stop Duan Ling Tian, but it was too late.
( NovelFull ) The crisp sound of a slap resonated in the air. Under the watchful eyes of the others, Duan Ling Tian had appeared in front of Zhao Ji, and one side of Zhao Ji’s face was already swollen. A clear palm print could be seen on his face.
Zhao Ji’s expression turned grave as he glared at Duan Ling Tian viciously. He opened his mouth to say, “Ling…” However, before he could finish his words, the sound of another slap resonated in the air.
Duan Ling Tian had slapped him another time on the other side of his face until it was swollen as well.
The killing intent in Zhao Ji’s eyes intensified, but he did not dare to say anything anymore. He was worried the man in front of him would make a move again if he spoke.
‘Be patient, Zhao Ji. You must endure it! A wise man doesn’t fight when the odds are against him! You’ll definitely get your revenge in the future. You’ll definitely make this guy die a horrible death!’ Zhao Ji repeatedly thought this in his mind as he tried to suppress the anger his heart. It was only natural he felt so enraged that he was on the verge of going crazy.
In his entire life, this was his first time being slapped on the face. Moreover, it was by someone who was almost his age.
This was a humiliation to him, and it had been engraved deeply in his heart and bones.
If this person in front of him did not die, he would not be able to live in peace.
Gasp! Gasp! Gasp! Gasp! Gasp!
Meanwhile, the sound of people gasping resonated in the air. The crowd of people began to return to their senses one by one. They were completely shocked by what Duan Ling Tian had done.
“Junior Brother Ling Tian’s really…” Wang Pi smiled wryly. He did not try to stop Duan Ling Tian earlier because he also did not like Zhao Ji’s behavior. However, when Duan Ling Tian made his move again, he wanted to stop him, but it was too late.
“Ling Tian’s too ridiculous, right? Zhao Ji’s not an ordinary Heaven Palace’s disciple,” many Mystical Sky Mansion’s disciples muttered among themselves, shocked. It was truly a shock to them both visually and mentally.
They knew very well of Zhao Ji’s background. In the Mystical Sky Mansion, even those high-ranking elders in Mystical Sky Mansion did not dare to simply offend Zhao Ji, let alone the disciples.
However, Zhao Yi was beaten by a disciple who had not even reached the age of forty and had just entered the Mystical Sky Mansion not long ago. Moreover, he was even slapped twice.
“What a good fellow! Where does Ling Tian get his courage from? Who’s the one giving him this courage?”
“He’s really doomed for offending Zhao Ji to such an extent!”
“I don’t think so. Don’t forget that Ling Tian’s also not an ordinary disciple in our Mystical Sky Mansion. He’s the strongest among the young generation in our Mystical Sky Mansion and is the future hope of our Mystical Sky Mansion. If he’s in danger, I think even Lord Mansion Master will come out to protect him, right?”
“You have a point. However, don’t forget it’s easy to kill someone in the Mystical Sky Mansion without alerting Lord Mansion Master.”
Many Mystical Sky Mansion’s disciples whispered among themselves. They felt Duan Ling Tian was digging his own grave by treating Zhao Ji this way.
“Junior Brother Ling Tian, don’t be too rash!” Wang Pi transmitted his voice to Duan Ling Tian, “The first lesson you taught Zhao Ji can be considered as reasonable. However, the two slaps you’ve given him is only humiliation to him publicly. It’s a little out of line.”
( NovelFull ) Wang Pi said that because he was unaware that Zhao Ji had already sent one of his men to the Main Mansion to look for Eminent Saint Stage disciples on the Mystical Sky Ranking to help him seek revenge from Duan Ling Tian.
“He…” When Wang Fei Xuan saw Duan Ling Tian gave Wang Fei Xuan two slaps, she was also shocked. She only managed to regain her senses after a while. When she thought about Zhao Ji’s background, she was overwhelmed with a sense of fear as she broke out in cold sweat on Duan Ling Tian’s behalf.
“Your two slaps are too rash!” Wang Fei Xuan transmitted her voice to Duan Ling Tian. Her tone was filled with worry. “By doing so, you’ve completely angered Zhao Ji. It looks like only one of you will be able to survive in the Mystical Sky Mansion in the future.”
Although she knew the reason for the two slaps Duan Ling Tian had given Zhao Ji, she still felt he was being too rash. Naturally, she only felt this way because she was worried about him.
“Rash?” When Duan Ling Tian heard her words, he did not explain himself.
He knew Zhao Ji’s background was extraordinary. However, it was not his style to stay meek and submit to being oppressed.
In Duan Ling Tian’s Martial Dao’s path, there was no space for fear at all. No matter how difficult the path in front of him was, he would still travel through it to rise and stand at the peak.
At this time, Gao Peng had retreated into the distance. It was as though he was afraid he would be somehow implicated in this mess.
“I’ve only joined the Mystical Sky Mansion not too long so there’s no one in particular that I admire. However, I must say that I really admire Ling Tian!” Somebody shouted. Although his voice was not extremely loud, many people heard his words.
“I agree! Put aside the consequences he might face later, just his courage alone is admirable!” Many Mystical Sky Mansion’s disciples chimed in.
Some of them admired Duan Ling Tian for his courage, naturally, there were also some that felt he was just seeking death.
“Ling Tian really thinks that he can act as he pleases in the Mystical Sky Mansion because of his high innate talent? Why doesn’t he take a look at his current cultivation base? There are many more people who’re stronger than him in the Mystical Sky Mansion!”
“That’s right! The person he had offended is not someone ordinary. It’s Zhao Ji! Everyone knows of Zhao Ji’s background. This time, Zhao Ji has suffered such humiliation, I’m sure the Vice Mansion Master and the Guardian won’t let this matter go if they find out about it!”
“Exactly! Perhaps the Vice Mansion Master and Guardian Elder might not personally make a move. However, it’ll still be too much for Ling Tian to handle if they ask their subordinates to make a move!”
“Perhaps, the Vice Mansion Master and the Guardian’s men might not dare to kill him openly in the Mystical Sky Mansion. However, who can guarantee they won’t find an opportunity to kill him? Even if his innate talent is high, he’s like floating smoke and passing clouds before he grows into his full potential!”
More Mystical Sky Mansion’s disciples felt it was unwise of Duan Ling Tian to offend Zhao Ji to such an extent.
Naturally, Duan Ling Tian heard their words, but he was not bothered by it.
He knew even if he did not make a move against Zhao Ji now, Zhao Ji still would not let matters go due to their earlier dispute.
He was quite confident of his judgment of people. With just a glance, he could tell Zhao Ji was a petty person. He was the type to turn a molehill into a mountain. Due to this reason, Duan Ling Tian did not regret his actions at all.
Whoosh! Whoosh! Whoosh!
Without warning, the sound of three gusts of wind whistling in the air reverberated in the distance. Soon enough, three figures appeared on the summit of the Heaven Palace.
One of them was the person who had left quietly earlier. He was Zhao Ji’s lackey. At this moment, he was standing behind two young men
Between the two young men, one was clad in white while the other was clad in black. As they hovered in the sky side by side, they looked like the Black and White Impermanence that came from hell to claim one’s life.
(T/N: Black and White Impermanence are two deities in Chinese folk religion in charge of escorting the spirits of the dead to the Underworld.)
“Zhao Bai Ju! Zhao Hei Tu!” When the white-clad and black-clad young men appeared, it, naturally, attracted many people’s attention. Wang Pi was the first to regain his senses.
When Wang Pi saw them, his expression turned grim immediately. At the same time, he transmitted his voice to Duan Ling Tian who was standing not far away. “Junior Brother Ling Tian, come to my side! Hurry!” Wang Pi’s tone was filled with urgency.
At this moment, Duan Ling Tian had also noticed the newcomers. He was not too surprised since Wang Fei Xuan had warned him earlier.
When he heard Wang Pi’s words, he did not refuse Wang Pi’s good intention. With just a flash, he appeared next to Wang Pi.
When the two young men appeared, Zhao Ji who was slapped by Duan Ling Tian until his face was swollen finally dared to speak. He moved quickly to the two young men as he called out, “Senior Brother Bai Ju! Senior Brother Hei Tu!”
Perhaps, Zhao Ji felt more secure now that he was standing next to the two young men, he glared at Duan Ling Tian with killing intent again. “Senior Brother Bai Ju, Senior Brother Hei Tu, it’s him! He’s Ling Tian! Not only did he injure me, but he even slapped me twice in front of everyone! He didn’t only humiliate me by slapping me publicly, but he has humiliated my father as well!” Zhao Ji’s expression twisted in anger when he finished speaking.
After listening to Zhao Ji’s words, the two young men’s expressions turned grave immediately. They glared at Duan Ling Tian with killing intent as well.
“That person in white is called Zhao Bai Ju while the one in black is called Zhao Hei Tu. These two are disciples that Zhao Ji’s father had taken in a long time ago. Since they’re both orphans, they had taken Zhao Ji’s father’s surname, ‘Zhao.’ Although their strength’s considered ordinary among all of Zhao Ji’s father’s disciples, their loyalty is not something the other disciples can compare to!” Wang Pi’s voice resonated by Duan Ling Tian’s ears.
Zhao Bai Ju! Zhao Hei Tu!
Duan Ling Tian nodded.
“The two of them are Eminent Saint Stage disciples who’re on the Mystical Sky Ranking. They are both Early Eminent Saint Stage Martial Cultivators like me,” Wang Pi continued to add through his Voice Transmission.
Early Eminent Saint Stage!
When Duan Ling Tian heard his words, his eyes brightened immediately.
With his current strength, it could be considered as him bullying the weak if he fought with those below the Eminent Saint Stage.
It would be a most welcomed opportunity if he could fight a powerhouse at the Eminent Saint Stage.
Zhao Bai Ju’s expression was grim when he stared at Duan Ling Tian and asked in a cold voice, “You’re Ling Tian?”
