Chapter 1829: Devil Suppressing!
Translator: EndlessFantasy Translation Editor: EndlessFantasy Translation
“You’re just like a mantis trying to stop a chariot!” Although Ouyang Ruo noticed the sword Duan Ling Tian wielded was unusual, she did not pay much attention to it. In her opinion, he was merely a Martial Cultivator at the peak of the Eminent Saint Stage. Even if he was given the infamous Super Saint Weapon, the Cloud Nine Sword, on the Ten Great Saint Weapons Ranking, it would still be impossible for him to block her attack!
This was how confident she was as a Mastery Divine Saint Stage Devil Cultivator!
If it was not for the fact that she was afraid of the Devilseal Tablet in Duan Ling Tian’s possession, she would not have hidden in the dark as she waited for a chance to make a move.
Only when Zhao Ji appeared and distracted the Devilseal Tablet, she felt it was the best time for her to make a move. Due to this reason, when she saw the Devilseal Tablet changed its direction from Zhao Ji after she had attacked, she seized the chance to quickly make her move. She had long prepared to die along with Duan Ling Tian!
The saber in Ouyang Ruo’s hand slashed across the sky through like a silver moon that rained down in torrents. In the end, it clashed directly with the Jasper Celestial Sword that Duan Ling Tian wielded.
Boom! Boom! Boom! Boom! Boom!
As the force on the saber in Ouyang Ruo’s hand collided with the force of the Jasper Celestial Sword, the sky trembled as the thunderous sound of air explosions reverberated. The air stirred violently before it transformed into flurries of hurricanes that swept out to the surroundings.
“Impossible!” When Ouyang Ruo noticed the sword in Duan Ling Tian’s hand was slightly more superior to the sable in her hand, her expression instantly turned horrified. She did not expect something like that would happen.
Was Duan Ling Tian not a Martial Cultivator at the peak of the Eminent Saint Stage? Since when did the strength of a Martial Cultivator at the peak of the Eminent Saint Stage was strong enough to fight against a Mastery Divine Saint Stage Devil Cultivator?
At this moment, Ou Yang did not connect the Duan Ling Tian’s strength to the sword in his hand.
Meanwhile, Zhao Ji who had been forgotten by the Devilseal Tablet did not even think about it or watch the unfolding scene as he fled far away. He disappeared in the distance in a blink of an eye just like a ghost, away from where Duan Ling Tian and Ouyang Ruo were fighting each other.
A cracking sound resonated in the air. As it turned out, the Jasper Celestial Sword in Duan Ling Tian’s hand had broken Ouyang Ruo’s saber. As though it had turned into a vicious snake, it slashed mercilessly at Ouyang Ruo.
However, she was a powerhouse at the Mastery Divine Saint Stage after all. Coupled with the depleting strength of Duan Ling Tian’s Jasper Celestial Sword, she managed to dodge the critical strike from the Jasper Celestial Sword.
Although she managed to dodge the Jasper Celestial Sword, the Devilseal Tablet had finally arrived.
The Devilseal Tablet slammed down on her from the sky like a mountain as though it wanted to completely suppress her.
“NO!” There was an unwilling expression on Ouyang Ruo’s face when the Devilseal Tablet smashed down on her and she saw Duan Ling Tian who was standing unsteadily, his strength completely depleted.
“Even if I die, I want to drag you down with me!” She exerted all her power to activate the broken saber in her hand. She intended to throw the saber out to kill Duan Ling Tian before the Devilseal Tablet killed her!
She was confident Duan Ling Tian would die if she threw the broken saber at him!
This was her last chance! Unfortunately, when Ouyang Ruo was mobilizing the energy in her body to infuse it into the broken saber, the horrifying energy surged out from the Devilseal Tablet and shrouded her.
A tyrannical energy surged inside her mind unreservedly, completely destroying her soul.
Her body turned lifeless as soon as her soul was destroyed. The broken saber in her hand that she was about to throw at Duan Ling Tian earlier dropped from her hand as well.
In the distance, Duan Ling Tian who had seen Ouyang Ruo being killed by the Devilseal Tablet relaxed as he panted heavily.
“Damn it! Zhao Ji managed to escape that Zhao Ji!” After panting for a while, Duan Ling Tian who had recovered slightly shifted his eyes to the distance. When he saw no one was present, horror dawned on his face.
“Devilseal Tablet!” At the same time, he looked at the Devilseal Tablet.
The Devilseal Tablet seemed to be able to sense his feelings. Without any warning, black bolts of lightning began to surge from it. Subsequently, it began to rotate in midair as though it was investigating something in all directions.
After a few moments, under Duan Ling Tian’s eager gaze, the Devilseal Tablet suddenly trembled before it seemed as though it had transformed into a meteor that soared quickly across the sky. It disappeared in just a blink of an eye before Duan Ling Tian’s eyes.
The direction the Devilseal Tablet was headed was the direction Zhao Ji had fled.
“Zhao Ji!” After Duan Ling Tian stored Ouyang Ruo’s ring away, he began to fly using what remained of his Sun True Origin. Although his speed was not at its peak, it could not be considered slow. However, as the Sun True Origin continued to deplete, his speed began to slow down as well.
‘I hope the Devilseal Tablet will be able to catch up to Zhao Ji and kill him,’ Duan Ling Tian thought to himself with a silent prayer.
In the distance, Zhao Ji was fleeing with all his might after the Devilseal Tablet had changed its target. His speed was at its peak, he did not dare to be negligent at all.
Although he was in the process of fleeing, he had a relief expression on his face since he did not hear any noise behind him. However, after a while, he heard the piercing sound of wind whistling behind him as horror dawned on him immediately.
“T-The Devilseal Tablet has caught up to me?” As he was fleeing, he turned around to look.
With just one glance, he saw something similar to bolts of black lightning charging toward him swiftly. Its speed was even faster than the speed of a powerhouse at the peak of the Divine Saint Stage!
Thoughts were still running through Zhao Ji’s mind when he turned to look at the bolts of black lightning when it suddenly appeared in front of him, charging toward him directly.
“NO!” He could only let out a sorrowful shriek before his body collapsed and fell from the sky.
There were no signs of life in his eyes at all. It was apparent Zhao Ji’s soul had been destroyed by the Devilseal Tablet now.
After 15 minutes, Duan Ling Tian finally reached this place. When he saw the Devilseal Tablet hovering in the sky as Zhao Ji laid on the ground, he sighed in relief. ‘Fortunately, Zhao Ji didn’t manage to escape. Otherwise, news of me being Duan Ling Tian would spread everywhere. The Devilseal Tablet is one of the ten great Saint Weapons on the Dao Martial Saint Land’s Ten Great Saint Weapons Ranking. Even in the Upper Province, it’s also considered an outstanding weapon. If news of this spread out, nobody in the Lower Province would dare to covet it since I’ll have the protection of the Azure Cloud Mansion. However, what about the Upper Province? The people in the Lower Province fear the Azure Cloud Mansion, but those powerhouses from the Upper Province think nothing the Azure Cloud Mansion at all!’ Fear lingered in his heart when this thought appeared in his mind.
However, since Zhao Ji had died, things should be okay. News of him being Duan Ling Tian would not leak. At least not for now.
After killing Zhao Ji, Duan Ling Tian rested for a moment before continuing his journey to the Azure Cloud Mansion.
At the Main Mansion of Mystical Sky Mansion.
“Ji’er must have already killed Ling Tian by now, right?” Due to the reason he was monitored by Qian Ping Sheng, the Palace Master of Yellow Palace, Zhao Deng could not leave the Mystical Sky Mansion’s estate at all. He could only stay in his residence as he waited for news.
Without warning, a cracking noise sounded nearby and attracted Zhao Deng’s gaze.
With just one glance, he could see that among the three pearls placed on a table nearby, the pearl on the right had shattered.
When Zhao Deng saw this, his eyes widened as it turned red.
“Ji’er!” He roared after a few moments. His voice was filled with rage and sorrow.
The pearl was his son, Zhao Ji’s Soul Pearl. Now that it had shattered, this meant that Zhao Ji had died and his soul was destroyed.
Zhao Deng who was overwhelmed with rage and sorrow had thrown Qian Ping Sheng to the back of his mind as he instantly flew out from his residence and out of the Mystical Sky Mansion’s estate to look for his son. He wanted to know how his son had died!
However, Qian Ping Sheng did not know what Zhao Deng had just gone through so he instantly blocked his path.
“Palace Master Qian, my son has just been killed. Don’t tell me you’re going to stop me from looking for the murderer? Perhaps, you’re also an accomplice of the person who killed my son?” Zhao Deng glared at Qian Ping Sheng with bloodshot eyes, causing Qian Ping Sheng to shudder.
“Zhao Ji’s dead?” Qian Ping Sheng frowned.
“Don’t tell me you think I’ll lie about this? Palace Master Qian, think about it carefully! If I miss the timing to look for the killer because of you, you’ll indirectly become an accomplice as well! At that time, you’ll have to personally explain yourself to my father!” When Zhao Deng reached the end of his sentence, he even mentioned his father Zhao Jin. His tone was filled with rage and annoyance.
Qian Ping Sheng gasped when he heard this. He could tell Zhao Deng was not lying.
For this reason, he obediently moved out of the way for him.
Since almost half of three days had gone by, Ling Tian must have already left far away from the Mystical Sky Mansion. Even if Zhao Deng gave chase to him, it would be impossible for him to catch up to him.
When Zhao Deng left the Mystical Sky Mansion’s estate, he spoke to a few Mystical Sky Mansion’s disciples from the Zhao Clan.
When he learned of the direction Duan Ling Tian and the group of Mystical Sky Mansion’s disciples at the Intermediate Refined Saint Stage and above were headed in, he immediately went there as well since he knew his son must have gone there!
Soon after, Zhao Deng encountered the group of Zhao Clan’s disciples at the Intermediate Eminent Saint Stage who were making their way back to the Mystical Sky Mansion. He instantly stopped them before asking in a deep voice, “Have any of you seen Ji’er?”
“Lord Vice Mansion Master!” The group of Zhao Clan’s disciples bowed respectfully to Zhao Deng and nodded their heads in response to his question.
“Lord Vice Mansion Master, we encountered Little Junior Brother earlier. However, it seemed like he used some high-grade evasion Dao Talisman and vanished into thin air right before our eyes,” many of them said simultaneously
“Evasion Dao Talisman?” Zhao Deng frowned.
However, when he extended his Divine Consciousness and probed the cultivation base of the group of Zhao Clan’s disciples, he managed to piece the puzzle together.
It was impossible for a group of Intermediate Eminent Saint Stage Martial Cultivators to catch the speed of his son who was at the Early Divine Saint Stage!
