Chapter 1811: The Hall of Death
Translator: EndlessFantasy Translation Editor: EndlessFantasy Translation
After breaking through to the Eminent Saint Stage, Zhao Kun’s True Origin had also undergone an earth-shattering transformation.
The Early Eminent Saint Stage’s True Origin was indeed different from the True Origin of someone at the peak of the Refined Saint Stage!
Faced with Hong Gang, Wang Fei Xuan, and the other two, Zhao Kun raised his hand and struck down.
His vast True Origin surged out and transformed into a hill-sized palm that covered Hong Gang and the other three people.
The four of them consolidated their Territories from their True Origins and spared no efforts in resisting with all their might.
At this moment, it was also impossible for them to hold themselves back since their opponent was an Eminent Saint Stage powerhouse!
Although their opponent had just broken through to the Eminent Saint Stage not too long ago, his level was already that of an Eminent Saint Stage powerhouse.
Despite the fact that the Early Eminent Saint Stage and the peak of the Refined Saint Stage was only one level apart, the difference between the two was like a fish and a dragon.
If the peak of the Refined Saint Stage powerhouse was a fish, then the Eminent Saint Stage powerhouse was a dragon.
As Zhao Kun’s palm landed, Hong Gang and the other three people’s Territories that were formed in a timely manner with great difficulty was directly destroyed by Zhao Kun’s palm like a broken wall that collapsed at the first blow.
Other than Territories, their techniques and their True Origins were also suppressed by Zhao Kun’s slap as well!
At this moment, Zhao Kun was battling with four Refined Saint Stage Martial Cultivators, and he was completely dominating the fight.
Boom! Boom! Boom! Boom!
The four of their bodies were blown by the wind from Zhao Kun’s palm and were sent flying before they landed on the ground in a wretched manner.
Their original ruddy cheeks had also turned as pale as a sheet of paper at this moment.
Although they had joined forces and fought with all their might, they still lost in just one blow from Zhao Kun who had just broken through to the Early Eminent Saint Stage!
“That’s the strength of an Eminent Saint Stage powerhouse?”
“One’s at the peak of the Refined Saint Stage, two are at the Mastery Refined Saint Stage, and the other one’s at the Intermediate Refined Saint Stage… Yet, the four of them still can’t defeat Zhao Kun even after they’d joined forces!”
“A few days ago, Zhao Kun was still being defeated by Hong Gang. However, after just a few days, it only took him one blow to defeat four of them who had joined forces! The difference before and after is just too shocking!”
“Zhao Kun breaking through to the Eminent Saint Stage is like a fish leaping over the dragon’s gate, transforming into a dragon that soars up into the sky! How heaven-defying!”
Upon seeing the scene before them, the spectators momentarily fell silent before they regained their senses one by one. Their eyes were all focused on Zhao Kun as they sighed emotionally.
“How weak!” Zhao Kun looked down on Hong Gang and the other three with a domineering and disdainful expression on his face.
At the same time, he took a step forward and walked toward the four people who were heavily injured when they were sent flying earlier. It was as though he was about to make his move again.
At this moment, a gust of wind seemed to have blown past as a figure appeared in a timely manner, blocking Zhao Kun’s path.
“That’s enough!” The figure glanced at Zhao Kun indifferently. Although he spoke calmly, his tone brooked no argument.
“Ling Tian!” The person who had obstructed Zhao Kun’s path was none other than Duan Ling Tian.
The crowd instantly recognized him as soon as he appeared.
Currently, he was widely acknowledged as the strongest powerhouse among the younger generation in the Mystical Sky Mansion. He was no longer the nobody who had just entered the Mystical Sky Mansion.
“Ling Tian!” Zhao Ji who was standing in the distance narrowed his eyes when he saw Duan Ling Tian. A killing intent flashed in the depths of his eyes.
When he saw Duan Ling Tian, he immediately recalled how Duan Ling Tian had slapped him twice publicly and how Duan Ling Tian had him eliminated from the Saint Martial Secret Zone, causing him to miss his chances with the Divine Ability Relics inside the Saint Martial Secret Zone.
If he was asked who was the person he hated the most in his whole life, there was no doubt the answer would be Ling Tian!
Not only that, but part of the reason he was so eager to cultivate the Devouring Dark Devil Technique to quickly raise his strength was so he could seek revenge from Duan Ling Tian.
“It’s Ling Tian! Is going to stand up for Hong Gang and the others?”
“I don’t think I heard of him being friends with Hong Gang… What’s he trying to do?”
“Hehe… Don’t forget that Ling Tian has enmity with the Zhao Clan. Before he entered the Saint Martial Secret Zone, he had publicly slapped Zhao Ji twice, greatly humiliating him! After they entered the Saint Martial Secret Zone, he even eliminated Zhao Ji who had only been in the Saint Martial Secret Zone for three days. After that, he even eliminated three other disciples from the Zhao Clan.”
“It doesn’t make a difference to him whether he makes a move today since the Zhao Clan won’t change their view about him no matter what.”
“I know this, but even if the Zhao Clan won’t change their opinion about him, it doesn’t seem wise for him to appear now, right? Zhao Kun’s not Zhao Ji. Zhao Kun’s an Eminent Saint Stage Martial Cultivator after all!”
“Don’t forget, although Ling Tian and Hong Gang are not friends, he’s quite close to Wang Fei Xuan… I always see both of them hanging out together. Their relationship must not be as simple as it seems!”
“You’re right. I almost forgot about Wang Fei Xuan. Ling Tian must be doing this for the sake of a woman!”
The crowd’s eyes shifted back and forth between Duan Ling Tian and Wang Fei Xuan.
Wang Fei Xuan was originally upset after being injured by Zhao Kun, but when she saw Duan Ling Tian appearing in a timely manner to stop Zhao Kun, she immediately felt joy rising in her heart.
Her autumn eyes turned gentle immediately when she heard the discussion in the surroundings and when she saw Duan Ling Tian graceful figure.
“Ling Tian? You’re Ling Tian?” When Zhao Kun saw someone blocking his path, he was furious. However, when he heard the discussion around him and learned that the young man standing before him was Ling Tian, his heartbeat quickened immediately as he became excited.
How could he not feel excited?
As a Mystical Sky Mansion’s disciple from the Zhao Clan, he had long heard the news that Lord Guardian had released. Whoever could kill Ling Tian would be his adopted son or daughter. Due to this, the entire Zhao Clan was in a frenzy!
Many people were monitoring Ling Tian all the time, waiting for him to leave or trying to lure him out so that they could kill him.
However, Ling Tian had just appeared in front of him and standing so close to him!
How could he not be overwhelmed with excitement?
Duan Ling Tian was baffled when he saw Zhao Kun looking at him as though he was a rare treasure. With a slight frown on his face, he asked, “Do I know you?”
“It doesn’t matter if you know me or not as long as you’re Ling Tian!” Zhao Kun took a deep breath to calm himself down a little. He tried his best to look as calm as possible as he looked at Duan Ling Tian and asked in a deep voice, “What? Are you trying to stand up for them, appearing at such a moment?”
Duan Ling Tian looked at Zhao Kun, but he did not reply.
“I can tell even if you don’t want to talk.” Zhao Kun did not seem to be bothered by Duan Ling Tian ignoring him. Instead, he continued speaking on his own, “You can stand up for them… I’ll give you a chance, how about that? You can seek revenge and vent their anger for them!”
“I’d like to hear more about it then,” Duan Ling Tian finally said. His tone was calm.
“Think about it. If we fight here, you can only hurt me at most if you’re stronger than I am. You won’t be able to kill me or cripple me at all! How about this? I’ll give you an opportunity. Let’s go to the Hall of Death, and let the elder of Hall of Death stand witness as we swear a Death Pact. We can fight with all our might this way. What do you think?” Zhao Kun explained patiently.
When he reached the end of his sentence, his tone was calm but it seemed to be baiting Duan Ling Tian. “At that time, you won’t violate the mansion’s rules or be subjected to punishment by the Enforcement Hall even if you kill me!”
The Hall of Death!
Duan Ling Tian raised an eyebrow.
Naturally, he knew the place Zhao Kun was talking about.
In the Mystical Sky Mansion, whether it was the Main Mansion, the Heaven Palace, the Earth Palace, the Mystical Palace or the Yellow Palace, each of them had a Hall of Death.
The Hall of Death provided a place for Mystical Sky Mansion’s disciples to settle their enmities and disputes.
When two Mystical Sky Mansion’s disciples went to the Hall of Death and swear a Death Pact, they could battle to death without being subjected to the Mystical Sky Mansion’s rules.
Usually, only people with great enmity between them would swear a Death Pact in the Hall of Death.
At this moment, Zhao Kun had taken the initiative to suggest to Duan Ling Tian to swear a Death Pact in the Hall of Death!
The Hall of Death!
Duan Ling Tian was not the only one who was surprised. Even the people present on the scene were taken aback. The originally noisy crowd fell silent immediately.
Zhao Kun actually issued a Death Duel invitation to Ling Tian!
Did he want to kill Ling Tian?
This was the thought on everyone’s mind at this moment.
“Zhao Kun’s trying to use this as a chance to kill Ling Tian!”
“What a great move! To think he’s following the rules to kill Ling Tian and seek revenge for the Zhao Clan!”
“However, it’s up to Ling Tian if he accepts the challenge or not.”
“If I were Ling Tian, there’s no way I’ll agree to such a ridiculous suggestion… Since Zhao Kun suggested this, it means that he’s completely confident he’s going to win!”
Among the people present on the scene, apart from Duan Ling Tian and Wang Fei Xuan, everyone, including Zhao Kun, did not think Duan Ling Tian would agree to it.
“What? Are you afraid?” Zhao Kun smiled mockingly as a hint of disdain filled his eyes when he saw Duan Ling Tian keeping quiet.
“Zhao Kun!” At this moment, Zhao Ji transmitted his voice to Zhao Kun and said coldly, “Stop your foolish act right now! I want to personally kill Duan Ling Tian!”
Although Zhao Ji did not think Ling Tian would agree to Zhao Kun’s suggestion, he still could not help but stop Zhao Kun.
If it was before, he would not have minded if Zhao Kun had killed Ling Tian.
However, he would soon be able to cultivate the Devouring Dark Devil Technique, and it would only take him one to two years to surpass Ling Tian. For this reason, he did not want anyone else to kill Ling Tian. He wanted to vent his anger and personally kill Ling Tian!
He had even decided to ask his grandfather to take back the order of killing Duan Ling Tian!
“Huh?” Zhao Kun did not expect Zhao Ji would transmit his voice to him and warn him not to provoke and touch Duan Ling Tian any further.
‘You want to personally kill him for revenge? Do you have the strength to do that?’ Naturally, Zhao Kun only dared to think these thoughts.
