Translator: EndlessFantasy Translation Editor: EndlessFantasy Translation
The white-clad man’s strike was so powerful and fast that Duan Ling Tian was unable to avoid it.
‘I’ll just have to endure it!’ Duan Ling Tian took a deep breath and immediately summoned his Sun True Origin to form the 10,000 Swords Territory as fast as he could.
However, the sword the white-clad man wielded was too fast. Before Duan Ling Tian’s 10,000 Swords Territory was formed, it had already shattered the Territory as though it was breaking off a dead branch.
The 10,000 Swords Territory shattered as the Sun True Origin was in chaos, causing serious internal injuries to Duan Ling Tian.
Duan Ling Tian threw up a mouthful of blood that splattered everywhere. However, he had no time to care about his injuries.
The white-clad young man was charging toward him with his sword like a sword deity who had descended from heaven, intending to kill him.
At that instant when the 10,000 Swords Territory was shattered, the Sun True Origin in his body immediately surged through the 99 Saint Veins in his body and gathered on his palm. It surged out and transformed into a brilliant and golden three-foot-long blade.
It looked like the dazzling sun from afar.
The white-clad young man’s eyes were cold, and his face was blank. The sword in his hand was like the Grim Reaper’s scythe to Duan Ling Tian, it could take his life at any time. Although he would not really die if he was killed by the white-clad young man, Duan Ling Tian had no plans of giving up.
This was the final trial of the Divine Ability Relic. He would be able to obtain a high-grade Divine Ability as long as he managed to pass this trial.
Based on the white-clad young man’s attack, the Divine Ability was obviously a sword-type Divine Ability!
It was exactly the type of Divine Ability that Duan Ling Tian wanted. Previously, Duan Ling Tian felt a little gloomy since he did not think he would have a chance of encountering such a Divine Ability.
However, now that he was presented with this chance, Duan Ling Tian was unwilling to let it go, ‘I’ll do my best to kill him and obtain the Divine Ability… If I still can’t defeat him after trying my best, then I’ll have no regrets.”
Duan Ling Tian grew increasingly determined. With that determination, Duan Ling Tian charged out with the three-foot-long blade in his hand. It swept out as fast as a bolt of lightning as he faced the white-clad young man directly.
The power contained in the white-clad young man’s strike was as powerful as the strength of an Intermediate Eminent Saint Stage powerhouse. Although Duan Ling Tian had used all his might, his strike was still significantly weaker than the white-clad young man’s strike.
The golden dazzling three-foot-long blade finally clashed with the three-foot-long blade in the white-clad young man’s hand. Power surged into the swords from both directions. It made the ground trembled as though they would crack.
“So powerful!” Duan Ling Tian discovered how terrifying the white-clad young man’s strike was when their swords clashed. The strength of the white-clad young man’s sword completely surpassed the strength of his sword. The power of his opponent seemed to surge into his hands and into his body.
The power was strong and destructive. It began to wreak havoc in Duan Ling Tian’s body as soon as it entered it, severely injuring his internal organs.
It was difficult for Duan Ling Tian to resist the foreign power in his body even as he hurriedly mobilized the remaining Sun True Origin in his body.
“No!” Duan Ling Tian’s body trembled as his expression changed dramatically.
Wang Fei Xuan who stood in the distance, observing, could not intervene at all since the beginning. However, when she saw Duan Ling Tian had fallen into a disadvantageous position after crossing swords with the white-clad young man, her expression changed. It seemed as though she had transformed into a gust of wind as she charged directly toward the white-clad young man.
Wang Fei Xuan was an Intermediate Refined Saint Stage Martial Cultivator after all so her attack was not that weak.
Even someone as strong as the white-clad young man would have to use some of his strength to withstand the attack from Wang Fei Xuan. He condensed a sword ray and shot it toward Wang Fei Xuan.
Accompanied by the sound of sword whistling in the air, the sword ray pierced through Wang Fei Xuan’s body. From the beginning until the end, Wang Fei Xuan did not even have a chance to react.
‘It’s too fast!’ That was Wang Fei Xuan’s only thought before her clone disappeared.
‘Ling Tian, you can do it!’ Wang Fei Xuan thought inwardly as her Divine Consciousness left her clone and returned to her actual body and was sent out by the Saint Martial Secret Zone.
While Wang Fei Xuan’s clone was killed by the white-clad young man, Duan Ling Tian who was originally in a precarious situation managed to obtain some breathing space since the white-clad young man had suddenly withdrawn his power.
It was during that momentary respite that Duan Ling Tian suddenly recalled the profundity of the Sovereign Heart Sword’s second stage.
‘The sword moves as my heart beats, and the sword moves along with my heart’s desire…’ The power the white-clad young man sent into Duan Ling Tian was ultimately a sword-based Divine Ability that amplified one’s strength. Ultimately, it was also the power of the sword.
Duan Ling Tian’s Sovereign Heart Sword was the Supreme Sword Dao Cultivation Method. Although he had not cultivated it to the highest stage, it took him only a while to summon the power of the second stage of the Sovereign Heart Sword cultivation method to expel the power of the white-clad young man from his body.
It was exactly at this time Wang Fei Xuan’s clone had completely disappeared.
“Die!” Duan Ling Tian’s eyes turned cold. Before the white-clad young man could turn his attention completely back on Duan Ling Tian, the three-foot-long blade in his hand began to tremble violently.
At this time, the profundity of the Sovereign Heart Sword’s second stage led the Sun True Origin and the white-clad young man’s power that had been expelled from Duan Ling Tian body and gathered in the three-foot-long blade in his hands. The sword thrust forward at the white-clad young man like a wyrm dragon lunging out of its lair.
The strike was swift and the piercing aura was so cold it seemed to have lowered the temperature in the surrounding.
Duan Ling Tian’s strike eventually pierced the white-clad young man’s body. There was no bloody and gory scene to be seen. The white-clad young man’s body vanished immediately.
“Finally passed it!” After Duan Ling Tian killed the white-clad young man, he sighed in relief. He still felt a lingering fear when he recalled the scene earlier.
‘Luckily I managed to summon the second stage of the Sovereign Heart Sword Cultivation Method at that crucial moment and expel all his power from my body… However, I should also thank Wang Fei Xuan. If it weren’t for her distracting him, I might not have been able to expel his power from my body even if I summon the Sovereign Heart Sword cultivation method,’ Duan Ling Tian thought to himself.
Suddenly, a cracking sound reverberated from above him. Duan Ling Tian looked up and saw a crack in the air with just a glance. Inside the crack was a huge stone sword.
The stone sword fell to the ground tip first and embedded itself into the ground.
“Huh? It’s not a stone tablet…” Based on Duan Ling Tian’s experience, all of the Divine Abilities he obtained, apart from the Elementary Devouring Tactic, was recorded in a stone tablet.
It was his first time seeing a stone sword in here.
However, after he extended his Divine Consciousness into the stone sword, he quickly realized the stone sword was actually similar to the stone tablets. They were all instruments that contained the Divine Abilities.
“It really is an offensive sword-type Divine Ability. It’s a high-grade Divine Ability, the Otherworldly Celestial!”
Duan Ling Tian whose Divine Consciousness had merged with the stone sword quickly learned about Divine Ability the white-clad young man had cast earlier. “The Otherworldly Celestial. Indeed, it lives up to its name…”
Previously, when the white-clad young man charged toward him, he indeed appeared like a sword deity that had descended from Heaven. The sword of the Otherworldly Celestial was really fast!
Perhaps, Duan Ling Tian had cultivated the Supreme Sword Dao Cultivation Method, the Sovereign Heart Sword, he merely took half a day to memorize all the information regarding the Divine Ability, the Otherworldly Celestial. With just a thought, he could access all the information he had memorized to comprehend and cultivate it.
“This trip to the Saint Stage Secret Zone is quite fruitful.” In just a blink of an eye, the Divine Ability Relic disappeared completely, and Duan Ling Tian was returned to the entrance of the Divine Ability Relic.
“There’s still one more day left… I think I’ll spend this time meditating.” After counting the days, he knew the Saint Martial Secret Zone would send him out tomorrow. Hence, Duan Ling Tian sat down crossed-legged and waited for it to happen.
Wang Fei Xuan’s appearance outside the Saint Martial Secret Zone had also attracted a lot of attention.
It should be noted there were thirty people who entered the Saint Martial Secret Zone, and there were only five people left inside before Wang Fei Xuan came out. Now that Wang Fei Xuan was sent out, it meant there were four people left inside.
“Miss Fei Xuan.” When Liu Jian saw Wang Fei Xuan, he immediately went over to her with a guilty expression on his face. “I’m sorry I’m too weak and wasn’t more of a help.”
He and Wang Fei Xuan had discovered two Divine Ability Relics together. Wang Fei Xuan had passed the trial to obtain the first Divine Ability Relic, but she had offered the Divine Ability to him.
They were unable to pass through all the trials to obtain the second Divine Ability Relic. Moreover, he was killed there and eliminated.
“You don’t have to apologize. I offered the Divine Ability to you in order to help Ling Tian return the favor he owed… From now on, Ling Tian no longer owes your senior any favor. Do you understand?” Wang Fei Xuan said as she looked at him coldly.
“Yes.” Liu Jian nodded.
Previously, he was unaware Duan Ling Tian had wanted to work with him to return his senior a favor. When the relationship between Ling Tian and Li Feng was exposed, he found out Ling Tian wanted to help Li Feng to return the favor he owed his senior.
His ‘senior’ was the Second Elder of Raging Wave Mansion, Liu Hong Guang.
Zhu Lu Qi, the Palace Master of Heaven Palace, looked at Wang Fei Xuan with bright eyes as he asked, “Miss Wang, did you meet Ling Tian in there?”
Most people were curious about how Ling Tian was faring inside the Saint Martial Secret Zone. This was because Duan Ling Tian had encountered the number one Divine Ability Relic in the Saint Martial Secret Zone and did not get disqualified.
There must be something strange! All of them wanted to know how Duan Ling Tian managed to escape.
Wang Fei Xuan did not know what Zhu Lu Qi would ask next, but she replied, “Yes, I’ve been with him for the last twenty days…”
Once Wang Fei Xuan finished speaking, the eyes of everyone present shifted to her in unison as they broke out in a discussion.
