Chapter 1013: The Five Element Sect’s Trump Card
Translator: EndlessFantasy Translation Editor: EndlessFantasy Translation
‘It’s been ten thousand years since the Rebirth Martial Emperor lived his second life… A force that lasted for ten thousand years… According to the Rebirth Martial Emperor’s memory, there seem to be only two Ancient Clans on Cloud Continent!’ Duan Ling Tian speculated as he browsed through the Rebirth Martial Emperor’s two lives worth of memory.
Based on the Rebirth Martial Emperor’s memory, his first and second life was ten thousand years apart.
Time would bring great changes to the world, even more so when it had been ten thousand years.
During his second life, only the two Ancients Clans were left among the many forces in Cloud Continent from his first life after ten thousand years.
Almost all of the forces he knew in his first life ceased to exist and became history in his second life.
Even if it still existed, it was in a state of decline and barely surviving.
“So… The force Ke Er and Little Fei are in should be a force that only appeared after the Rebirth Martial Emperor reincarnated through the Three Lives Rebirth Technique.” Duan Ling Tian was completely certain about that point.
Although Qin Xiang did not know the name of the Foreign Lands’ force Ke Er and Li Fei were in, Duan Ling Tian managed to obtain an important clue from what she said.
Snow peak and volcano.
There should not be many forces that had both a snow peak and a volcano.
‘When I go to the Foreign Lands in the future, I’ll use the clue and ask around… As long as the sect isn’t an unrated sect, I should be able to discover something about it,’ Duan Ling Tian thought to himself.
Duan Ling Tian could not help but show a charming smile on his face when he thought of meeting his fiancees, Ke Er and Little Fei, again.
After bidding farewell to Qin Xiang, Duan Ling Tian left Alkaid Hall and looked for Feng Tian Wu.
He was planning to look for Xiong Quan to fix his Dantian after meeting Feng Tian Wu.
When Duan Ling Tian was looking for Feng Tian Wu, a couple of uninvited guests from the Foreign Lands visited the Five Element Sect in the eastern zone of the northern desert.
“Five Element Sect, hand over Duan Ling Tian!”
A loud voice came like an explosion and shook the clouds above the sky. The voice loudly and clearly reached the Five Element Sect’s Five Peaks.
It seemed the senior officials and disciples from the Five Element Sect’s Five Peaks had encountered an enemy.
“Someone’s asking for Senior Brother Ling Tian… He must be from the second-rate force, Izumo Sect!”
“Senior Brother Duan Ling Tian killed two of the most outstanding young men in Izumo Sect. It’s expected they would look for trouble with our Five Element Sect.”
Soon after, many senior officials and disciples of the Five Element Sect discovered the person’s identity.
Reality proved they were right.
‘Whoosh! Whoosh! Whoosh!’
Silhouettes flew into the sky from the Five Element Sect’s Five Peaks one after another. They were the three leaders of the Five Element Sect’s senior officials.
They arrived in the sky and immediately faced the intruders.
There was a total of four uninvited guests.
The leader of the team was a strong old man who exuded an aura of nobility.
He stood there silently, his intense aura seemed to be integrated with heaven and earth. The Five Element Sect’s senior officials’ expressions turned sober.
All they felt was an invisible aura coming from the old man that shrouded them, and it caused them to feel a little overwhelmed.
‘Martial Monarch powerhouse?!’ At this moment, the Five Element Sect’s senior officials’ hearts palpitated when this thought occurred to them.
Unless the person was a Martial Monarch powerhouse, even a Peak Void powerhouse who had comprehended three or four Ninth Level Void Transformation Concepts could not make them feel like this!
They instantly discovered the strong old man’s identity. He was Izumo Sect’s only Martial Monarch powerhouse, Tong Shan.
As the senior officials from a third-rate force in the northern desert, they had a certain understanding of the three major second-rate forces in the northern desert. The Izumo Sect and the Martial Monarch powerhouse from the sect were within their knowledge.
The three leaders of the Five Element Sect’s senior officials were the Peak Master of Fire Peak, Cha Bai, the Peak Master of Water Peak, Yu Fang, and the Peak Master of Earth Peak, Tian Gu.
“May I know if you’re Senior Tong Shan from Izumo Sect?” Tian Gu asked respectfully as he looked at the strong old man.
“You actually recognized me, not bad… However, I don’t think you’re the Sect Leader of Five Element Sect, are you?” Tong Shan asked as he glanced at Tian Gu.
“I’m the Peak Master of Five Element Sect’s Earth Peak, Tian Gu,” Tian Gu responded with a smile.
“Hmph! In your Five Element Sect, nobody’s worthy to speak to me apart from your Sect Leader… Get the Sect Leader of Five Element Sect to speak to me and hand over Duan Ling Tian…”
“Otherwise, I’ll turn the Five Element Sect upside down today!” Tong Shan scoffed and coldness filled his tone as he rudely said, “Since all of you know me, you should know my ability, and you should also know that I’m capable of making that happen!”
“Senior, we know you have the capability to do that.” Faced with Tong Shan’s threat, Tian Gu solemnly nodded. However, there was no fear on his face at all. In fact, he seemed fearless.
“Since you know what I’m capable of… You… Why don’t you get the Sect Leader of Five Element Sect to see me right away?” Tong Shan asked with disdain. He thought Tian Gu had agreed to what he had said.
“Senior Tong Shan, I’m so sorry… Both our Sect Leader and the Peak Master of Wood Peak are not at the Five Element Sect for the time being,” Tian Gu said slowly.
“Then hand over Duan Ling Tian!” Killing intent shot out of Tong Shan’s eyes. When he mentioned Duan Ling Tian, his Martial Monarch’s imposing manner swept out once again. It caused the Five Element Sect’s senior officials’ expressions to change.
“I’ll give all of you the duration of thirty breaths… If you don’t hand over Duan Ling Tian after thirty breaths, your Five Element Sect will no longer exist!” Tong Shan’s tone was calm but it was filled with killing intent.
At the same time, ruthlessness and violence filled his eyes as though he was about to devour anyone who dared approach him.
“Senior Tong Shan, perhaps you’re unaware of this. Duan Ling Tian had announced his departure from our Five Element Sect when he was in the Martial Emperor’s secret treasure. He’s no longer one of us.”
“You’re still targeting our Five Element Sect even under such circumstances… Is your Izumo Sect not afraid of being a laughing stock in the northern desert?” Tian Gu said calmly. There was a hint of mockery and teasing in his tone as he continued to speak.
“You don’t have to worry about that… I’m standing my ground, either you hand over Duan Ling Tian or it’s the end of the Five Element Sect!” Tong Shan’s voice turned cold as he spoke.
“Senior Tong Shan, I’ve already told you Duan Ling Tian has left our Five Element Sect. He’s no longer a disciple of our Five Element Sect! Even we have no idea where he went,” Tian Gu said again.
“Do you think I’ll believe you?” Tong Shan smirked.
“No matter if Senior Tong Shan believes me or not, it’s the truth… Also, our Sect Leader of Five Element Sect and Peak Master of Wood Peak aren’t in the sect because they’re currently deep in cultivation and in the process of breaking through!”
“However, they left this message before they left… During the time of their absence, if anyone from Izumo Sect dares to touch even a strand of hair on any of the Five Element Sect’s people, they’ll visit Izumo Sect when they’ve broken through to the Martial Monarch Stage,” Tian Gu said slowly as he grinned.
“It’s a blatant threat!’
In a twist of events, Tian Gu was the one currently threatening Tong Shan. Tong Shan’s face immediately turned grave.
Martial Monarch Stage!
One must admit what Tian Gu said held a certain level of threat.
No matter if it were the people Tong Shan brought or even Tong Shan himself, their expression changed after they heard Tian Gu’s threat.
“Martial Monarch Stage? Do you think it’s easy to break through to the Martial Monarch Stage?” Tong Shan smirked at Tian Gu’s words.
Among those present, he was the only one who had the right to speak since he was a powerhouse who had broken through to the Martial Monarch Stage.
“Our Sect Leader had comprehended the Ninth Level Advanced Wind Concept and Ninth Level Advanced Thunder Concept… With the help of the Wind Profundity Fragment and Thunder Profundity Fragment, it’s not difficult to break through to the Martial Monarch Stage.” Tian Gu ignored Tong Shan’s smirk. “As for our Peak Master of Wood Peak, he had comprehended the Ninth Level Advanced Water Concept and Ninth Level Fire Advanced Concept… Since he’s able to comprehend two opposing Ninth Level Void Transformation Concepts, it’s just a matter of time before he breaks through to the Martial Monarch Stage.”
Tong Shan’s expression changed again after hearing Tian Gu’s words.
Even the expression of the other three who came with Tong Shan changed.
The Five Element Sect obtained two Profundity Fragments?
Moreover, the Profundity Fragments seemed to have been taken by the Sect Leader of Five Element Sect for cultivation. It was logical he would immediately isolate himself somewhere to comprehend the Profundities and break through to the Martial Monarch Stage.
Moreover, the Peak Master of Five Element Sect’s Wood Peak had comprehended the Ninth Level Void Transformation Water and Fire Concepts.
It was not difficult for such a Peak Void powerhouse to break through to the Martial Monarch Stage and become a Martial Monarch powerhouse. It was just a matter of time.
With that said, the Five Element Sect would soon have two Martial Monarch powerhouses in the near future!
At that time, it would be as easy as cutting grass for them to kill everyone in Izumo Sect even if the two of them could not fight Tong Shan.
Tong Shan’s face turned pale. Only another Martial Monarch powerhouse had the capability to make a Martial Monarch powerhouse like him reveal such an expression.
“Let’s go!” Tong Shan said to the three people behind him and prepared to leave.
One had to say Tong Shan really did not dare to do anything to the Five Element Sect after discovering the sect’s trump card.
Unless he managed to discover the Sect Leader of Five Element Sect and the Peak Master of Wood Peak and kill them before they broke through to the Martial Monarch Stage to avoid trouble in the future, he dared not take the risk.
“Senior Tong Shan, I know where Duan Ling Tian is!” Just when Tong Shan was getting ready to leave, a deep voice entered his ears. It was a Voice Transmission.
