Translator: KurazyTolanzuraytor Editor: JayC
“Vice Fort Master Ning, I’m truly sorry… I’m not willing.” Under the gazes of everyone present, Duan Ling Tian spoke out unhurriedly to answer Ning Can’s question.
For a time, many people present felt their scalps go numb.
Duan Ling Tian really dares to refuse him!
“Good, good… Good!” Ning Can took a deep breath and spoke the word ‘good’ three times in succession before finally asked in a low voice. “In this way, you’ve already taken Sword 13 as your master?”
As far as her was concerned, since Sword 13 had repeatedly said that he didn’t have the qualification to take Duan Ling Tian as his disciple, then there would surely be a reason.
The most likely reason was the Sword 13 had already taken Duan Ling Tian as his disciple.
“Ning Can!” Duan Ling Tian hadn’t spoken yet when Sword 13 had already looked at Ning Can. “You wouldn’t be thinking that I’ve taken Duan Ling Tian as my disciple earlier, and that’s why I ridiculed you as not possessing the qualification to take Duan Ling Tian as your disciple, right?”
“Hmph!” Ning Can grunted coldly, and he obviously admitted it in an implied manner.
“Then I’m afraid you’re going to be disappointed… I, Sword 13, feel that I’m just like you and don’t possess the qualifications to take Duan Ling Tian as a personal disciple either.” Sword 13 continued.
Sword 13’s words was like a stone that caused a thousand ripples, and it caused everyone present to go into an uproar.
Sword 13, an expert from a power of the Foreign Lands, the Blade Sect, that wasn’t inferior to the Skywolf Fort, and an existence that was on equal standing with these two Vice Fort Masters of Skywolf Fort had actually openly said that he didn’t possess the qualifications to take Duan Ling Tian as a disciple!
Who was Duan Ling Tian?
A young genius from a mere Dynasty, so on what basis was he able to make Sword 13 speak words like this?
Besides Su Li, most of the people felt deeply perplexed.
Only Su Li knew extremely clearly about what his master was thinking in his heart. Because the reason his master would speak like this was entirely because he’d told his master about Duan Ling Tian’s background.
Just like him, Duan Ling Tian was from an Kingdom that was beneath an Imperial Kingdom that was beneath an Empire that was beneath the Darkhan Dynasty.
A Kingdom was the smallest subordinate power that was of the lowest level and most remote amongst the subordinate powers of the Darkhan Dynasty.
Not to mention the Foreign Lands, even if it was the Darkhan Dynasty, that tiny little kingdom was no different than a remote village in the eyes of the Darkhan Dynasty.
Yet it was precisely a young man from a remote village that had moved step by step to traverse a path of his own and possess his current shocking strength.
According to Sword 13’s guess, there seemed to only be two types of possibilities to explain why Duan Ling Tian was able to possess such accomplishments in such a short period of time.
The first, Duan Ling Tian possessed a master of extraordinary origins, and his master ought to be an expert that possesses terrifying strength.
The second, Duan Ling Tian didn’t possess a master, and he’d relied on himself and the various fortuitous encounters he’d obtained to arrive at his current accomplishments.
No matter which possibility it was, as far as Sword 13 was concerned, Ning Can didn’t possess the qualifications to be Duan Ling Tian’s master.
Because even if Ning Can had taken Duan Ling Tian as his disciple while Duan Ling Tian was young, Duan Ling Tian might not be able to possess his current strength.
Moreover, according to his knowledge, Duan Ling Tian also possessed a secret technique that was utilized with Spiritual Force, and it was an ability that even Martial Monarch Stage experts might not be able to come into contact with.
Not to mention Ning Can, even a Martial Monarch Stage expert was unable to teach Duan Ling Tian this.
“I truly never imagined that you, Sword 13, would give such a high evaluation to a little kid.” Ning Can laughed coldly, yet his expression had eased up slightly. To a certain extent, Sword 13’s words could be considered to have given him a way out.
After he glanced indifferently at Duan Ling Tian, Ning Can didn’t say anything further because he knew that no matter what he said, he would only bring insult to himself.
Of course, in his heart, he wished for nothing more than to tear Duan Ling Tian into pieces before burning Duan Ling Tian’s bones and scattering his ashes.
But he knew that for the sake of the Skywolf Fort’s face, and because of the presence of Sword 13 and Saber 5 who were experts from the Blade Sect that he was afraid of, he didn’t dare act rashly.
In his eyes, Duan Ling Tian was only an ant, and it wouldn’t be too late even if he waited for the Martial Competition of the Ten Dynasties to end before thinking of a way to kill Duan Ling Tian.
Moreover, who could guarantee that Duan Ling Tian would be able to survive in the later selections of the Martial Competition of the Ten Dynasties?
“The first round of the selections has ended! Gather here tomorrow morning as well, and at that time, I’ll lead all of you towards the place where the second round of the selections will be held.” Ning Can looked around at the remaining 50 young geniuses and spoke slowly.
As soon as he finished speaking, his entire body had vanished on the spot, and he’d left.
“Hmph!” Feng Wei’s gaze that was filled with killing intent flashed towards Duan Ling Tian as he snorted coldly, and then he brought along the personal disciple he’d just taken today, Lu Yong, and left to enter the inner fort of Skywolf Fort.
Most of the young geniuses from the ten Dynasties couldn’t help but reveal expressions of envy as they looked at Lu Yong’s disappearing figure.
The representative of the Darming Dynasty this time, the Zhao Clan’s Zhao Qian revealed a rare trace of a smile on his face.
The Crown Prince of their Darming Dynasty being able to become the personal disciple of the Vice Fort Master of Skywolf Fort was utterly beneficial to their Darming Dynasty.
“Wei Yi, properly display your ability in the following selections… You might have a chance to take the other Fort Masters of Skywolf Fort as a master. Based on the current situation, Vice Fort Master Feng is only an ordinary Vice Fort Master, and even Vice Fort Master Ning has a higher status than him.” After Elder Qian noticed that Zhao Wei Yi’s expression was gloomy, he guessed what Zhao Wei Yi was thinking, so he consoled. “Moreover, don’t forget that the one with the highest position in Skywolf Fort isn’t those Vice Fort Masters, but is instead the elusive Fort Master!”
Zhao Wei Yi’s eyes dim eyes finally contained a glow when he heard this, and his face contained an extra sense of resolution.
But when his gaze accidentally descended onto the distant violet clothed young man, his expression couldn’t help but darken.
The violet clothed young man wasn’t unfamiliar to him and had even caused him to suffer deep humiliation.
To him, when the violet clothed young man used an unfathomable and peculiar ability to defeat him in the ninth floor of the Iceflame Pavilion that day, it was the greatest humiliation he’s suffered in his entire lifetime.
When he recalled how the violet clothed young man had refused to take Vice Fort Master Ning as master, his expression became even more unsightly.
The Vice Fort Master of Skywolf Fort, Ning Can, that Duan Ling Tian disdained to take as his master just happened to be someone he wanted to take as his master even in his dreams!
For a time, an indescribable bitterness arose in his heart.
At this instant, he suddenly felt that Duan Ling Tian who was already ahead of him seemed to have thrown him even further into the distance, and it caused him to be unable to catch up.
“Could it be that I, Zhao Wei Yi, will be unable to defeat him and wash away the humiliation I suffered for my entire life? No! I’m not resigned to this fate!” Zhao Wei Yi roared endlessly with unwillingness in his heart.
“I truly never imagined that one day has passed just like this.” Duan Ling Tian’s eyes narrowed as he looked at the sunset glow in the horizon. Day and night couldn’t be distinguished within the Illusory Purgatory, so he was unable to sense the change in time.
Unknowingly, an entire day had already passed during the first round of the Martial Competition of the Ten Dynasties’ selections.
“Let’s go have dinner.” Duan Ling Tian looked at the group of people by his side and suggested.
At the same time, Duan Ling Tian was deeply afraid that Sword 13 would refuse, so his gaze directly descended onto Sword 13. “Senior, come with us as well.”
Unexpectedly, Sword 13 didn’t refuse, and it was even to the extent that even Saber 5 and Long Yun had come along to have food, causing Duan Ling Tian to feel speechless. “Is the skin of this pair of master and disciple so thick?”
After Duan Ling Tian’s group left, the representatives and young geniuses of the various Dynasties in the sky above the combat arena finally made a move.
Some of them helped the elders of Skywolf Fort clear up the corpses on the combat arena, while the remaining people either headed out of Skywolf Fort or headed towards the pavilions Skywolf Wolf arranged for them.
“On exactly what basis did that Duan Ling Tian obtain such a high level of acknowledgement from that expert of the Blade Sect?”
“Yes. That expert from the Blade Sect is obviously an expert at the same level as Vice Fort Master Ning and Vice Fort Master Feng, yet he actually said that he doesn’t possess the qualifications to take Duan Ling Tian as his disciple, and it’s truly unbelievable.”
“Perhaps the Blade Sect expert is intentionally being mystifying.”
Duan Ling Tian that had become known well by all the representatives and young geniuses of the various dynasties two days ago had once again become the center of their discussions.
Skywolf Fort, inner fort.
“Martial uncle, Duan Ling Tian was so presumptuous before you today. Could it be that you’re going to let it go like that?” In a vast courtyard, Feng Wei frowned as he looked at Ning Can.
Ning Can’s eyes narrowed as a strand of cold light flashed past his eyes. “Then what do you think I should do? Kill him directly? Not to mention that Sword 13 will stop me, even if I really kill him, what would the people outside say about me?”
“They would say the Vice Fort Master of Skywolf Fort, Ning Can, wanted to take a young man as his personal disciple, but he turned angry from embarrassment because the young man refused him, then he used his might to bully and kill the young man?” As he finished speaking, Ning Can snorted coldly.
“Could it be that we’re going to just let this matter go?” Feng Wei’s eyes flickered with a cold light, and he said with an unwilling expression, “He undoubtedly looks down at our Skywolf Fort by treating Martial Uncle like that… I’m not willing to let him off like that!”
“Let him off? Impossible!” Ning Can sneered.
“Martial Uncle, what you mean it?” Feng Wei’s eyes lit up and he couldn’t help but ask curiously.
“Don’t forget that there are still another three rounds of selection in the Martial Competition of the Ten Dynasties… Go tell that personal disciple you just accepted that so long as he’s able to kill Duan Ling Tian and help me vent my anger, I’ll give him an eighth level Fire Concept Fragment!” said Ning Can.
Eighth level Fire Concept Fragment!
Feng Wei couldn’t help but gasp when he heard Ning Can.
Even though he’d given a third level Fire Concept Fragment to his personal disciple, yet there was a difference like the difference between the heavens and the earth between it and the eighth level Fire Concept Fragment in his Martial Uncle’s possession.
A third level Fire Concept Fragment was only capable of assisting a martial artist that had comprehended Fire Concept to advance swiftly until the third level of Advanced Fire Concept.
After the martial artist comprehended third level Advanced Fire Concept, the third level Fire Concept Fragment would transform into powder and vanish.
Cultivation after that would require the martial artist to rely on the martial artist’s own comprehension, or perhaps rely on finding another Fire Concept Fragment of an even higher level.
On the other hand, an eighth level Fire Concept Fragment was sufficient to allow a martial artist that had comprehended Fire Concept to swiftly attain the state of eighth level Advanced Fire Concept within a short period of time!
Even if it was in the Skywolf Fort, there were very few eighth level Advanced Concept Fragments.
