Chapter 1773: Two Divine Abilities!
Translator: EndlessFantasy Translation Editor: EndlessFantasy Translation
Upon hearing Duan Ling Tian’s words, the three Mystical Sky Mansion’s disciples from the Zhao Clan finally understood Duan Ling Tian’s words no matter how slow-witted they were.
Horror dawned on their faces immediately.
“Ling Tian, y-you’ve killed Senior Brother Zhao Ji’s clone?” When the Mystical Sky Mansion’s disciples from the Zhao Clan looked at Duan Ling Tian again, terror could be seen in their eyes.
Despite knowing Ling Tian and Zhao Ji had enmity between them, it did not cross their minds he would dare to kill Zhao Ji in the Saint Martial Secret Zone.
In fact, the strongest Mystical Sky Mansion’s disciples from the Zhao Clan who entered the Saint Martial Secret Zone this time was Zhao Ji.
In the Zhao Clan, Zhao Ji was the person with the highest chance to obtain a high-grade Divine Ability Relic and break through to the Divine Saint Stage. It would allow him to comprehend and master the Divine Ability contained inside the Divine Ability Relic.
Killing and eliminating Zhao Ji meant that the Zhao Clan had lost a Divine Saint Stage powerhouse who could comprehend and master a Divine Ability from the Saint Martial Secret Zone.
This was undoubtedly a great loss to the Zhao Clan!
“I remember I encountered him on the third day we came in. Since we’re fated to meet, wouldn’t it be unkind of me if I don’t send him out?” Duan Ling Tian replied nonchalantly as though he was talking about something that was unrelated to him.
After that Heaven Palace’s disciple who was being surrounded heard Duan Ling Tian said that he had sent Zhao Ji out, a shocked expression appeared on his face.
Although he knew about Ling Tian and Zhao Ji’s dispute, it did not cross his mind that Ling Tian was bold enough to directly kill Zhao Ji’s clone.
He was even more shocked when Duan Ling Tian’s words sank in.
Zhao Ji was eliminated on the third day after entering the Saint Martial Secret Zone?
“Z-zhao Ji is just too unlucky, right?” The Heaven Palace’s disciple was rendered speechless. At the same time, he could not help but pity him as well.
“Three days?” Although the three Mystical Sky Mansion’s disciples from the Zhao Clan already knew Duan Ling Tian had eliminated Zhao Ji, they were still shocked when they heard his words.
Originally, they had thought Zhao Ji was only eliminated by Duan Ling Tian a few days ago. They did not expect that Zhao Ji was eliminated three days after he came in.
Just how unlucky was he?
Thinking of the word ‘unlucky’, three of them exchanged glances with each other. They could see they were all thinking about the same thing. Speaking of unlucky, were they not unlucky as well.
They knew they would be eliminated by Ling Tian soon —
“Let’s flee! Although the chance is slim, it’s better than to stand here and wait for death!”
“I agree! Let’s flee!”
Soon after, the three Mystical Sky Mansion’s disciples from the Zhao Clan transmitted their voices to each other and came to a tacit agreement.
At this moment, they had completely thrown the Heaven Palace’s disciple they were cornering to the back of their minds. Only one thought was left in their minds, and it was to escape from Ling Tian.
The weakest among the Mystical Sky Mansion’s disciples from the Zhao Clan was at the peak of the Pristine Saint Stage while the other two more powerful ones were at the Early Refined Saint Stage. After coming to an agreement, one of them counted down through Voice Transmission. The three of them simultaneously made their moves and fled in three different directions. Only then would they stand a chance in escaping!
Even if only one of them managed to escape, it was still better than having the entire army wiped out.
They did not even think of pleading with Duan Ling Tian.
Even Zhao Ji from their Zhao Clan had already been killed and eliminated by Ling Tian. Even if three of them lowered themselves and kneeled down to plead for their lives, they would still be killed.
Since this was the case, was it not better to try and escape?
“Zhao Ji did not even manage to flee from my grasp. Do three of you think you’re stronger than him?” Duan Ling Tian was already prepared. The Sun True Origin was glowing on his skin. When he saw those three escaped in three different directions, he instantly activated the Sun True Origin that was enveloping the surface of his body and transformed it into six streaks of golden rays that shot out dazzlingly in all directions.
Whoosh! Whoosh! Whoosh!
Those three who had fled not far away was caught up by the six streaks of sword rays that were as dazzling as the sun as it landed on them.
The place between their brows and their hearts were pierced.
The three figures vanished immediately.
Although the Heaven Palace’s disciples had already expected such an outcome, he still could not help but gasp as he stood at his spot.
Among the younger generation in the Mystical Sky Mansion, it was very likely that only this man could kill two Early Refined Saint Stage Martial Cultivators and a Martial Cultivator at the peak of the Pristine Saint Stage with just a raise of his hand.
After killing the three Mystical Sky Mansion’s disciples from the Zhao Clan, Duan Ling Tian’s face began to ease up.
When he had slapped Zhao Ji twice publicly, the enmity between him and the Zhao Clan had long been formed. Moreover, it had also reached a point of no return.
Was there a way to return to how it was before?
Zhao Ji’s father, Zhao Deng, was the Vice Mansion Master of Mystical Sky Mansion, and his grandfather was even one of the two great Guardians of the Mystical Sky Mansion.
These two close relatives of his were leaders with the highest positions in the Zhao Clan.
Since he had offended Zhao Ji, it was equivalent to offending the Zhao Clan as well.
Duan Ling Tian knew this clearly. That was why he did not even hesitate when he killed Zhao Ji previously and the three Mystical Sky Mansion’s disciples from the Zhao Clan earlier.
Since he had already offended them, he did not mind offending them further.
After nodding toward the Heaven Palace’s disciple as a greeting, Duan Ling Tian turned around to leave.
The Heaven Palace’s disciple was stunned when he saw this.
He had thought of many possible scenarios, but it did not cross his mind that Duan Ling Tian did not even say a word and would leave after saving him by killing the three Mystical Sky Mansion’s disciples from the Zhao Clan.
Did he not hear the conversation between him and the people from the Zhao Clan? Did he not know he had the clues that lead to a Divine Ability Relic?
He thought about it again and found it impossible.
From Duan Ling Tian’s calm manner earlier, it was apparent he was biding his time at the side for a long time so he must have heard their conversation.
Since Ling Tian was leaving, it was obvious he did not plan to force him to reveal the clues he had leading to the Divine Ability Relic.
The Heaven Palace’s disciple had guessed correctly. Although Duan Ling Tian did not mind snatching clues that led to Divine Ability Relics from disciples of other palaces, he did not have the heart to snatch clues from Heaven Palace’s disciples.
No matter what, he was also a Heaven Palace’s disciple and had reaped benefits from the Heaven Palace’s Spirit Pool.
He felt a sense of belonging to the Heaven Palace.
“Senior Brother Ling Tian!” Seeing how Duan Ling Tian was leaving further and further away, the Heaven Palace’s disciple became anxious and immediately chased after him.
“Is there anything else?” When Duan Ling Tian heard his voice, he came to a halt and turned around to look at the Heaven Palace’s disciple with a puzzled expression.
After taking a deep breath to calm himself down, he replied, “Senior Brother Ling Tian, I want to work together with you.”
“Work with me?” Duan Ling Tian smiled. “I heard earlier that you have clues leading to one Divine Ability Relic. Even if we manage to pass the trials, it’ll be a problem later to decide who gets to memorize Divine Ability first. It’ll be fine if I haven’t agreed to partner up with other people since we can look for other clues for other Divine Ability Relics for the other person. However, the problem is, I’ve already agreed to work with other people. I’m worried I’ll encounter them before we manage to find a second Divine Ability Relic.”
Duan Ling Tian added, “I promised one of them to give them the first Divine Ability Relic we encounter once we reunite.”
“Senior Brother Ling Tian, the fact that you said such words means that you’re a man of your words. I, Xiao Dun, admire you lot!” The Heaven Palace’s disciple said with admiration. Then, he shifted the topic and continued to say, “However, the clues I have lead to not only one, but two Divine Ability Relics! If you work with me, Senior Brother Ling Tian, how about we split the Divine Ability Relics?”
After he had finished speaking, he looked at Duan Ling Tian with anticipation.
“Two Divine Ability Relics?” Upon hearing his words, Duan Ling Tian was taken aback. He did not expect Xiao Dun who was only at the peak of the Pristine Saint Stage managed to find clues leading to two Divine Ability Relics in just a month after entering the Saint Martial Secret Zone.
“Yes.” Xiao Dun nodded. Then, as though he was reminded of something, he let out a long sigh. “Actually, the two Divine Ability Relics were found by my friend. He has cultivated a secret tactic that’s related to the eyes. His vision is better than ordinary people! Due to that, he could find clues leading to two Divine Ability Relics in just a month. Unfortunately, just as he was about to find another Divine Ability Relic so that we can search for another person at the Refined Saint Stage to work with to go through the trials, we encountered those three men who killed him.”
When Xiao Dun reached the end of his sentence, a regretful expression could be seen on his face.
“That’s indeed quite a pity.” Duan Ling Tian nodded. He was quite shocked. Even he only managed to obtain two Divine Abilities after entering the Saint Martial Secret Zone for a month.
Although Xiao Dun’s friend did not obtain the Divine Ability, he managed to find clues leading to two Divine Ability Relics. His luck was in no way inferior to his own.
“I wonder what grade the Divine Abilities inside the two Divine Ability Relics are?” Duan Ling Tian was very curious about this. For a moment, he seemed to have forgotten to agree to Xiao Dun’s request of working together.
“Senior Brother Ling Tian.” Duan Ling Tian finally snapped back to reality when Xiao Dun spoke again.
“I can partner up with you, but how should we split the Divine Ability Relics?”
“I’ll tell you about the information I have of the places where the two Divine Ability Relics are, Senior Brother Ling Tian…” Xiao Dun did not keep anything to himself and revealed everything he knew.
The two Divine Ability Relics were similar to the ones Duan Ling Tian had encountered previously. One would need to enter it through an Illusory Formation, and after one had entered, one would have to face the first trial.
The first trial of the first Divine Ability Relic that Duan Ling Tian encountered was slightly more difficult. For this reason, the Divine Ability he obtained was at a higher grade as well.
From Xiao Dun’s description, the first trial of the two Divine Abilities he encountered was as difficult as the Divine Ability Relic that contained the Divine Ability, the Six Harmonies Golden Body.
It was apparent the Divine Abilities contained in the two Divine Ability Relics were in no way inferior to the Six Harmonies Golden Body.
“Your friend’s quite lucky.” Duan Ling Tian sighed emotionally.
