Chapter 1825: Killing Spree
Translator: EndlessFantasy Translation Editor: EndlessFantasy Translation
“Ling Tian!” Zhao Dong took the lead and was the first one to catch up to Duan Ling Tian. He blocked Duan Ling Tian’s path.
When Duan Ling Tian left the Mystical Sky Mansion, he discovered many people were tailing him. If he traveled at his full speed, naturally, he would be able to shake them loose. However, Duan Ling Tian did not intend to do that. He knew the people who were tailing him intended to kill him. Since that was the case, he would help them and give them a chance. That was why he had intentionally slowed down after leaving the Mystical Sky Mansion’s estate.
People at the Divine Stage or above from the Zhao Clan were suppressed by Gu Li’s people whom he had connections with. Therefore, he was not particularly worried about meeting any troublesome character.
“I know you. You’re Zhao Dong, right? You’re ranked fifth on the Mystical Sky Ranking… Have you forgotten the lesson you were taught before? It wasn’t painful enough?” Duan Ling Tian recognized Zhao Dong as soon as he appeared to obstruct his path.
A few days ago, in his front yard, Gu Li had sent all the Mystical Sky Mansion’s disciples from the Zhao Clan flying, including Zhao Dong. Gu Li had only let them go because Duan Ling Tian could not be bothered to pursue the matter.
Duan Ling Tian did not expect Zhao Dong would come to stop him after the incident a few days ago. It was obvious he did not take that lesson to heart!
“Ling Tian, why are you so smug? Gu Li’s not by your side today!” When Duan Ling Tian mocked him, Zhao Dong recalled how he had embarrassed himself in front of Gu Li a few days ago. His face instantly reddened as he became angry.
“What? Do you think you can do as you please just because Senior Brother Gu Li is not by my side?” The sneer on Duan Ling Tian’s face deepened. His eyes were filled with disdain!
“You’re seeking death!” Zhao Dong could no longer control himself when he saw the disdain in Duan Ling Tian’s eyes. He cried out angrily as he moved at lightning speed, charging toward Duan Ling Tian.
Boom! Boom! Boom!
Zhao Dong’s movements were like a thunderstorm. The sound of explosions sounded in his wake. The air began to stir as he moved. The ripples in the air turned into a gust of strong wind, causing the robes of some of the Mystical Sky Mansion’s disciples from the Zhao Clan to flutter.
“Let’s go! We can’t let Zhao Dong get the credit for killing Ling Tian!”
“Kill Ling Tian! Anyone who kills him will become the adopted son of Lord Guardian and have the same status as Vice Mansion Master Zhao Deng!”
When the Mystical Sky Mansion’s disciples from Zhao Clan who had just arrived saw Zhao Dong had already begun to attack, their expressions changed dramatically.
Subsequently, they all charged out, causing a commotion. It was as though they were worried they would be left with nothing if they were too slow.
Naturally, there were also some Mystical Sky Mansion’s disciples from Zhao Clan who remained behind or who were slow to act. These disciples mostly had cultivation bases lower than the Intermediate Eminent Saint Stage.
Before they even caught up with the others, they suddenly came to a halt and stared at the scene before them with widened eyes. It was as though their bodies were frozen, they could not move an inch at all.
“Nothing but a mob of useless people!” Duan Ling Tian said coldly as he stood nearby.
As soon as he finished speaking, a vast dazzling and blinding True Origin surged out from his body. It was as bright as the sun. In just a blink of an eye, it transformed into more than a hundred sword rays, flying in all directions and attacking indiscriminately.
Apart from Zhao Dong who narrowly escaped, the group of Mastery Eminent Saint Stage Mystical Sky Mansion’s disciples from the Zhao Clan could not avoid the sword rays at all. Their bodies were pierced by the golden sword rays. Their bodies had so many holes that it resembled a beehive.
“H-he… He has also broken through to the peak of the Eminent Saint Stage?” Although Zhao Dong managed to dodge Duan Ling Tian’s attack, he felt fear began to rise in his heart as his expression changed drastically.
Although Zhao Dong had only broken through to the peak of the Eminent Saint Stage not too long ago, he could clearly sense Duan Ling Tian’s True Origin was similar to his. His True Origin was at the peak of the Eminent Saint Stage as well!
Although they were both True Origins at the peak of the Eminent Saint Stage, Ling Tian’s speed and control of his True Origin was not something he could compete with! Moreover, the hundreds of sword rays that were flying around seemed very chaotic, but it was an extremely powerful sword tactic! The martial tactics Zhao Dong had mastered was nowhere near as powerful!
At this instant, Zhao Dong could clearly see although both of them were at the peak of the Eminent Saint Stage, he was far from being comparable to Ling Tian!
With Ling Tian’s strength, he could be considered as the strongest person at the peak of the Eminent Saint Stage in the entire Lower Province of the Dao Martial Saint Land!
“This…” In the distance, the Mystical Sky Mansion’s disciples from Zhao Clan who was slow or remained behind paled from the shock they received. At this moment, they felt somewhat lucky.
It was fortunate they had not broken through to the Mastery Eminent Saint Stage! Otherwise, they would also end up like those before them.
Boom! Boom! Boom!
As the corpses of the Mastery Eminent Saint Stage Mystical Sky Mansion’s disciples from the Zhao Clan fell to the ground, the remaining Mystical Sky Mansion’s disciples from Zhao Clan began to regain their senses. Their eyes were filled with horror when they looked at Duan Ling Tian again. This included Zhao Dong.
Currently, Zhao Dong had lost his arrogant attitude. His eyes were filled with fear and unease when he looked at Duan Ling Tian.
Although both of them were Martial Cultivators at the peak of the Eminent Saint Stage Martial, the strength Duan Ling Tian had displayed had made him completely dismiss the idea of fighting Duan Ling Tian. He knew he was not a match for him even if he was also a Martial Cultivator at the peak of the Eminent Saint Stage!
Martial Cultivators at the peak of the Eminent Saint Stage Martial were divided into different classes. If Duan Ling Tian was in the third class, then he would be in the ninth class. He could not compare to him at all.
After a while, Duan Ling Tian glanced at Zhao Dong coldly and broke the silence by speaking first, “Zhao Dong, didn’t you say I’m seeking death? Why did you stop attacking?”
When Zhao Dong heard this, he recalled how arrogant he was and felt embarrassed immediately. He felt he had acted ridiculously when he recalled how he thought it would be for him to kill Ling Tian!
Duan Ling Tian’s eyes gleamed with killing intent when he saw Zhao Dong did not respond to his questions.
When Zhao Dong saw the killing intent in Duan Ling Tian’s eyes, his expression changed drastically as he said in a panicked voice, “Ling Tian, I’m blind for not knowing my place… Just treat this as me farting. I promise I won’t ever go against you again! Really! I promise”
When Zhao Dong spoke, he saw the killing intent in Duan Ling Tian’s eyes did not subside. He quickly lowered his body and kneeled in the air as he begged for mercy from Duan Ling Tian, “Ling Tian, please forgive me this time! I beg you! Please!”
Many Mystical Sky Mansion’s disciples from the Zhao Clan looked at Zhao Dong disdainfully when they saw how cowardly his actions were. Naturally, some people who also understood Zhao Dong’s actions. They felt it was acceptable to act that way to stay alive.
“Humph!” Duan Ling Tian’s eyes were filled with hate and disgust when he saw how Zhao Dong seemed to have transformed into a different person.
As Duan Ling Tian raised his arm, a dazzling golden sword ray shot across the sky, heading toward Zhao Dong.
Although Zhao Dong was kneeling, he remained guarded. As soon as Duan Ling Tian made his move, he began to defend himself!
However, how could Zhao Dong who had just broken through to the peak of the Eminent Saint Stage recently and did not even have perfect control of his True Origin defend against Duan Ling Tian’s attack?
The sword ray that flew across the sky like a blazing sun destroyed Zhao Dong’s attempt at defending himself before it pierced his body without even slowing down. The sound of the sword ray piercing Zhao Dong’s body could be heard as a shower of blood appeared.
“You…” Zhao Dong’s body trembled as he vomited a large amount of blood. His face was pale as he tried to lift his trembling hand to point at Duan Ling Tian. However, he died before he could even straighten his arms.
Even Zhao Dong who was at the peak of the Eminent Saint Stage had died. The expressions of the remaining Mystical Sky Mansion’s disciples from the Zhao Clan changed dramatically. However, none of them tried to flee. No one wanted to be the first one since it would be very eye-catching. There was no doubt being eye-catching at this moment would only result in death. All of them were not rookies, naturally, they understood this very well.
They were looking at Duan Ling Tian anxiously, waiting for him to act, as he collected his war trophies. However, he just glanced at them indifferently before he continued on his journey.
When one of the Mystical Sky Mansion’s disciples from the Zhao Clan, who had broken out in cold sweat out of fear, saw Duan Ling Tian’s figure moving further and further away, he muttered, “H-he’s leaving just like this?”
Another Mystical Sky Mansion’s disciple from the Zhao Clan with a pale face asked in return, “What then? Are you hoping for him to stay and kill us?”
“We’re fortunate our cultivation bases and speed are low… Otherwise, we would also be lying on the ground like them!” Another Mystical Sky Mansion’s disciple from the Zhao Clan said fearfully as he looked at the corpses on the ground.
The others were still in a state of fear and agreed with his words.
“Ling Tian did this?” At this time, a voice sounded. It shocked the group of Mystical Sky Mansion’s disciples from the Zhao Clan.
Initially, they thought Ling Tian had returned. However, they discovered it was their junior brother when they turned around to look.
“I’m asking all of you a question!” Zhao Ji’s expression darkened when he saw the group of Mystical Sky Mansion’s disciples from the Zhao Clan did not respond to his question.
When Zhao Ji arrived, he saw corpses all over the place. The corpses were all familiar to since they were people from the Zhao Clan.
“Yes, he did!”
“Ling Tian is a freak! In less than two years, he already has the strength of a powerhouse at the peak of the Eminent Saint Stage!”
The group of Mystical Sky Mansion’s disciples from the Zhao Clan spoke up one after another. Their voices were laced with fear.
