Chapter 1030: An Insane Decision
Translator: EndlessFantasy Translation Editor: EndlessFantasy Translation
Most of the guests in the restaurant looked at the young man who was held in a choke as though they were taking pleasure in his misery.
In their opinion, that young man whose gender was ambiguous was undoubtedly looking for death when he said the disaster that would befall the Crimson Sky Kingdom would be something fantastic to watch in the presence of Duan Ling Tian.
The young man’s expression changed as soon as Duan Ling Tian revealed his identity.
Now that the mockery around him entered his ears, he felt as though he was struck by lightning.
He only snapped out of his daze after a while and fearfully looked at the purple-clad young man who was choking him.
Initially, he had no idea why the purple-clad young man did that to him. However, he completely understood why Duan Ling Tian did that now.
Everything came from him bad-mouthing the Crimson Sky Kingdom where the young man before him came from.
That person went through a lot after he left the Crimson Sky Kingdom and was named the most powerful young man in the current Darkhan Dynasty before he even turned thirty.
“You… You’re Duan Ling Tian?!” The young man’s voice remained feminine. However, there was a hint of fear in his voice now. The fear naturally came from facing Duan Ling Tian.
“Did you say… If I didn’t show myself to those people in five days time, they would attack the Crimson Sky Kingdom?” Duan Ling Tian enunciated each word slowly as his eyes that were as sharp as blades glared at the young man.
If Duan Ling Tian could kill with his eyes, the young man would have been dead at this very moment.
As Duan Ling Tian spoke, everybody who was present, including Feng Tian Wu, had their attention on the young man.
They were all curious.
“Yes… Yes,” the young man quickly replied. He was afraid Duan Ling Tian would choke him to death due to his disturbed emotion so he did not dare to delay his reply.
“Tell me everything you know,” Duan Ling Tian said slowly as he regained his composure.
However, Duan Ling Tian’s calm voice sounded like the calm before the storm when it entered the young man’s ears.
He did not know when his forehead began sweating or when his lips began to quiver. There was fear in his eyes.
The young man with an evil face and feminine voice told Duan Ling Tian everything he knew without holding back as the others looked on.
It included how he got his information. As it turned out, he heard about it from a distant relative who came from the Darkstone Empire not too long ago.
“Those people arrived at the Crimson Sky Kingdom two months ago and attempted to get me to show myself by threatening me with the kingdom’s safety?”
“The news about those people wanting me to show myself by threatening the Crimson Sky Kingdom has been spread all over the Darkhan Dynasty and Darkstone Empire?”
“Those people announced they would give me two months to show myself two months ago. If I don’t, they’ll destroy the Crimson Sky Kingdom?”
Duan Ling Tian’s expression became more and more somber.
He did not expect one of the three second-rate forces in the northern desert would come to the Darkhan Dynasty and the Crimson Sky Kingdom two months ago.
“I can’t believe a respectable second-rate force would stoop so low… It’s taking my hometown hostage to threaten me to show myself.” A cold gleam flashed in Duan Ling Tian’s eyes as killing intent emanated from his body.
At this moment, he seemed to have transformed into a bloodthirsty Asura thirsty. It looked as though he was out for blood.
The guests in the restaurant, apart from Feng Tian Wu, and the young man he held in a choke retreated far away as they looked at Duan Ling Tian with fearful eyes.
They were really scared Duan Ling Tian would suddenly attack them.
Duan Ling Tian might be younger than them, but his strength was on a different level considering how young he was. It brought an intense fear into their hearts.
Who were they kidding!
Two years ago, Duan Ling Tian made Azure Forest Tri-Sect’s history by killing three of its Sect Leaders all by himself.
Nobody knew how far Duan Ling Tian’s ability had risen after two years.
They were not even a match for Duan Ling Tian two years ago.
“Duan Ling Tian, I’ve already told you everything I know… Please don’t kill me! Please don’t kill me! I beg you, I’m begging you!!” The ashen-faced young man begged Duan Ling Tian with all his might when he sensed the impending danger.
At this moment, Duan Ling Tian finally snapped out of his thoughts and looked coldly at the young man he held in a choke who was begging him incessantly.
“Sometimes… You have to pay the price for the things you say,” Duan Ling Tian said slowly and calmly with no inflection in his tone.
However, everyone present could hear the rage in Duan Ling Tian’s words.
“No!!” The young man’s expression changed immediately.
Duan Ling Tian released his hold on the young man before he slammed his palm against the young man’s lower abdomen with lightning speed.
Before the young man could even get on his feet, he was attacked again by Duan Ling Tian and slammed into the wall on the side of the restaurant.
The young man’s face flushed, and he spat out a mouthful of blood as he slid down the wall with blood all over his body.
“My Origin Energy! My Origin Energy… You’re cruel… You’re so cruel! You severed my Dantian!” The young man was momentarily stunned before he glared at Duan Ling Tian as he groaned softly in pain.
The restaurant guests who were watching heard what he said and their expressions changed as they looked at Duan Ling Tian in fear.
In this world where Martial Dao powerhouses ruled, to a certain extent, severing a person’s cultivation base was worse than taking away someone’s lives.
“This is the price you’ve to pay for speaking nonsense.” Duan Ling Tian sounded cold and did not look at the young man once since the beginning until the end.
“Tian Wu, let’s go.” Before they even had the chance to eat, they vanished before the guests’ eyes.
Naturally, they did not vanish into thin air, but they were so fast that the guests in the restaurant could not catch their movements at all.
At this moment, the restaurant guests only saw a red glow flashed before their eyes as Duan Ling Tian and the red-clad lady with a veil covering her face vanished.
“That’s so fast!” Soon after, somebody could not help but exclaim in shock.
“It’s been two years… I’m afraid Duan Ling Tian’s ability has already broken through to the Void Interpretation stage!” Somebody speculated.
Most people agreed with that person’s speculation.
“It’s really unfortunate, his big mouth became his downfall. Not only did he insult the Crimson Sky Kingdom, he even said it in front of Duan Ling Tian!”
“That’s right! Didn’t he know the Crimson Sky Kingdom is Duan Ling Tian’s hometown?”
“Haha… He probably didn’t know Duan Ling Tian was present when he said he was eager to watch the Crimson Sky Kingdom bathe in blood.”
The mockery continued among the guests in the restaurant. All of it entered the young man’s ears as he was carried out by his two friends.
The young man suddenly fainted after he spat out another mouthful of blood from being angered.
Naturally, Duan Ling Tian was unaware of what was happening at the restaurant.
He left the small city after leaving the restaurant and began to make his way to the Crimson Sky Kingdom.
A fiery silhouette trailed after Duan Ling Tian like a shadow and soon caught up with him.
“Big Brother Duan, are you going to the Crimson Sky Kingdom now?” Feng Tian Wu had been to the Crimson Sky Kingdom with Duan Ling Tian previously. She could easily identify they were heading in the direction of the kingdom.
“Yes.” Duan Ling Tian did not deny it as a hint of gloom appeared between his brows.
The Crimson Sky Kingdom was his hometown in this life. The importance of the kingdom was not any less than the earth he previously lived on in his previous life.
Although his parents had left the Crimson Sky Kingdom, there were many things he missed in the Crimson Sky Kingdom.
His family and friends in his previous life were out of his reach, but those in his current life were here.
“No matter what… I won’t let anything happen to them because of something I did! Otherwise, I won’t be able to live in peace.” Familiar silhouettes appeared one after another in Duan Ling Tian’s mind.
Xiao Yu, Xiao Xun, Tian Hu, Li Xuan… As well as many of the seniors who helped him back then.
If the Crimson Sky Kingdom was really destroyed because of him, it would be an eternal regret in his life!
Therefore, he made a decision without thinking twice. He decided to go there regardless of the danger that lay ahead.
There was no way for Duan Ling Tian to predict the outcome of his decision, but he knew it was definitely risky!
‘I just hope the Devilseal Tablet won’t fail at a critical moment…’ Duan Ling Tian thought to himself.
He had come to an insane decision. He would use the Devilseal Tablet to kill the people from the second-rate force during the critical moment!
He recalled the time when he was devilified by the Devilseal Tablet back then and what happened before he killed the six Void Transformation Stage Skywolf Fort’s elders.
He remembered he was in a complete rage as Ta Mu was killed when he blocked one of the Skywolf Fort elders’ attacks that was meant for him.
However, as much as he was angered, his ability back then was not even enough to fend off the elders, let alone avenging Ta Mu.
Fortunately, Duan Ling Tian noticed the unusual changes in the Devilseal Tablet that was contained in his Spatial Ring. It was truly a close call.
When he came in contact with the Devilseal Tablet in his Spatial Ring, a voice seemed to enter his ears. The intriguing voice seemed to have come from the Devilseal Tablet.
‘Let me out!!’
‘I’ll give you endless strength!!’
Duan Ling Tian remembered the voice clearly until today.
It was the voice that made him retrieve the Devilseal Tablet that was emitting a strange black energy.
When his hands made contact with the Devilseal Tablet, the black energy entered his body and his soul.
Soon after, his consciousness was suppressed as he was devilified!
