Chapter 1049: Killed Directly
Translator: EndlessFantasy Translation Editor: EndlessFantasy Translation
Duan Ling Tian’s rage grew and spread in his mind as he took a step forward and shouted.
The Devilseal Tablet had affected Duan Ling Tian in an intangible way.
The moment Duan Ling Tian stepped forward, a majestic energy swept out and targeted the old man before him. Its speed was alarmingly quick like lightning.
“Oh, no!” The old man’s heart jolted. He knew something was wrong when he saw Duan Ling Tian approaching him.
His eyes narrowed and fear was written all over his face when saw the wave of energy that Duan Ling Tian’s body was releasing. Moreover, he found it difficult to even catch his movement.
The old man did not hesitate as he attempted to evade Duan Ling Tian’s attack by moving out of his attack’s area of effect.
However, could he really evade the attack?
Duan Ling Tian’s raging attack contained energy that combined his Origin Energy and many Concepts. It was equivalent to the strength of 2,700 ancient horned dragons.
Fighting a martial artist who had just comprehended the First Level Void Transformation with his strength was similar to killing a chicken with a cleaver.
It was the truth.
The energy coming out of Duan Ling Tian’s body looked like it had transformed into a wave of majestic and colorful flames. The old man was drowned in the sea of flames at the moment he was about to make his move.
‘Bang! Bang! Bang! Bang! Bang!’
The sound of the explosion reverberated as the colorful flames swept out. The sound was deafening.
‘Rumble! Rumble! Rumble!’
Eventually, the colorful flames shrouded one of the palaces in the middle of the Imperial Palace and turned the entire area into a flatland in just a blink of an eye.
Moreover, a gigantic crater appeared in place of the palace.
The crater was big enough to bury tens of thousands of people in it.
“Young Master’s so powerful!” Xiong Quan was standing behind Duan Ling Tian, and he witnessed the old man being killed by the colorful energy Duan Ling Tian’s body released.
There was nothing left of the old man at all apart from a Spatial Ring and a Concept fragment.
“Young Master, are you alright?” Xiong Quan looked worried.
He noticed earlier that a terrifying aura rose from his Young Master’s body when he released the petrifying energy while he was walking toward the old man.
He had an inexplicable feeling as though his Young Master had changed. He seemed like a stranger to him.
It was as though he had transformed into a bloodthirsty shura that escaped from hell.
“Hmm?” Duan Ling Tian’s body was still releasing that terrifying aura when he slowly regained senses after hearing Xiong Quan calling out to him.
At this moment, he felt extremely drowsy.
When he recalled what had just happened, he was instantly pulled back to reality. He was sweating profusely from his forehead.
“My initial plan was to show him my current ability so the Darkhan Dynasty’s imperial family will hand over the 10,000 Year Frost! I didn’t expect to lose control of my emotion to the extent that I ended up killing him.” Duan Ling Tian took a deep breath. He felt numb in his scalp.
This was the first time he felt terrified of the Devilseal Tablet’s after-effect.
Although he could sense that he was easily agitated after he was devilified by the Devilseal Tablet for the first time, he did not take it seriously since he could easily suppress his emotion.
However, he noticed his emotion would run amok as soon as he became agitated after the second devilification by the Devilseal Tablet. His rage grew to the extent that he even did something extreme.
He only recalled what had happened after he regained his senses.
‘Although the devilification by the Devilseal Tablet grants me the ability to kill an ordinary Martial Monarch powerhouse in just a blow, it comes with huge a price to pay!’ Duan Ling Tian’s face turned somber.
The Devilseal Tablet was like a double-edged blade. It would 100% kill one’s opponent, but in return, it would cause 80% damage to oneself!
His instinct told him that if he allowed the Devilseal Table to devilify him as it wished, his control over his emotion would slowly slip away until he was nothing but a killing machine.
“Unless it’s necessary, I’ll never use the Devilseal Tablet again!” Duan Ling Tian decided after he took a deep breath.
In his opinion, the Devilseal Tablet was no longer a trump card. It might suppress his consciousness and turn him into a killing machine while his emotions run amok.
“Nevermind. There’s nothing I can do now since I’ve already killed him.” Duan Ling Tian put the Spatial Ring and Concept Fragment that belonged to the Darkhan Dynasty’s Old Prince into his Spatial Ring.
He hated ingrates the most!
The Darkhan Dynasty’s Old Prince spoke as though he would only hand over the 10,000 Year Frost if Duan Ling Tian was powerful enough to defeat the entire Darkhan Dynasty’s imperial family.
“I’ve obtained many Spirit Weapons, pills, and even Concept fragments for the Darkhan Dynasty… I’m only asking for the 10,000 Year Frost. Its value is a lot less than the items I obtained from the Skywolf Fort and Blade Sect for them. How dare he blocked my way again and again?!” A hint of rage unknowingly appeared on Duan Ling Tian’s face as the terrifying aura rose from his body again.
“Young Master!” Duan Ling Tian regained his senses after Xiong Quan called out to him again.
At this moment, he had a morose expression on his face. “Damn it! The after-effect of the Devilseal Tablet is too severe… I’ll have to try harder to control my emotion.”
Duan Ling Tian realized the after-effect from the Devilseal Tablet had completely gone beyond his control.
“Duan Ling Tian! How dare you kill my Imperial Uncle!” Soon after, a furious voice reverberated in the sky. A silhouette covered in a golden dragon robe appeared. It was a majestic looking middle-aged man.
It was the Darkhan Dynasty’s Emperor!
At this moment, the Darkhan Dynasty’s Emperor glared at Duan Ling Tian furiously. There was a hint of coldness in his eyes as though he would devour anyone who dared approach him.
However, there was also fear in the depth of his eyes.
He saw everything clearly when Duan Ling Tian killed the old man with just one blow.
He knew he was not a match for Duan Ling Tian since he was less powerful than the Old Prince.
“Your Majesty!” At that moment, another two old men flew into the sky and arrived next to the Darkhan Dynasty’s Emperor. They looked at Duan Ling Tian with fear on their pale faces.
“Tsk tsk… It’s been such a short period of time, and yet there are so many Void Transformation martial artists in the Darkhan Dynasty’s imperial family now.” Duan Ling Tian figured out the Darkhan Dynasty’s Emperor and the other old men’s cultivation base with the help of his Spiritual Energy. His tone when he spoke was filled with mockery.
“But, did all of you forget… who was the one who contributed to your achievement in breaking through to the Void Transformation Stage?” His eyes gleamed as he mocked them.
He was trying his best to suppress the rage within him because he was afraid he would lose control of emotion again.
He was really worried he would end up killing the three Void Transformation martial artists in the Darkhan Dynasty’s imperial family due to his uncontrollable rage.
The Darkhan Dynasty’s Emperor’s face turned somber while the other two Darkhan Dynasty’s Old Princes looked rather embarrassed when they heard Duan Ling Tian’s words.
Naturally, Duan Ling Tian was the biggest contributor to their achievements.
“Duan Ling Tian!” The Darkhan Dynasty’s Emperor finally spoke. He said coldly, “I admit that it’s mainly your contribution that we managed to break through to the Void Transformation Stage… But that doesn’t mean you can kill the people of the Darkhan Dynasty’s imperial family as you wish without a reason!”
“Killing without a reason?” Duan Ling Tian laughed. “Your Majesty, do you really not know the reason? Don’t you think it’s a little unreasonable for you to accuse me of killing the people from your imperial family before you figure out what happened?”
“Hmm?” The Darkhan Dynasty’s Emperor frowned when he heard what Duan Ling Tian said.
Even the two old men standing next to him were looking at Duan Ling Tian with doubt written all over their faces.
They were just watching from afar earlier. They only saw Duan Ling Tian killing the Old Prince. They had no idea what had transpired between the both of them.
“The reason I’m here today is to ask for the 10,000 Year Frost from the Darkhan Dynasty’s imperial family… However, that old geezer was beating around the bush and intentionally changed the subject.”
“Moreover, the way he spoke sounded as if you would only hand over the 10,000 Year Frost if my ability is powerful enough to defeat the entire Darkhan Dynasty’s imperial family,” Duan Ling Tian enunciated each word patiently as he recounted what had happened earlier.
All of a sudden, the Darkhan Dynasty’s Emperor’s expression changed while the other two men felt their faces flushing.
In their opinion, even if they gave him all of the 10,000 Year Frost the imperial family had in store, it was not even equivalent to 1/10000 of the benefits Duan Ling Tian had given to the Darkhan Dynasty’s imperial family.
Although the 10,000 Year Frost was precious, the imperial family did not have much use for it. They were just sitting in the treasure vault.
On the other hand, the benefits Duan Ling Tian had given them helped them break through to the Void Transformation Stage. He made their dreams of many years come true.
“Now, does Your Majesty still think that I killed the people from your Darkhan Dynasty for no good reason?” Duan Ling Tian asked with a sarcastic smile on his face. His eyes were narrowed.
The Darkhan Dynasty Emperor knew they were at the losing end, but he did not speak even after a while.
Meanwhile, Duan Ling Tian’s expression gradually turned gloomy.
“Duan Ling Tian! It’s our imperial family who has mistreated you. It’s not your fault.” The two Old Princes saw the change in Duan Ling Tian’s expression, and they panicked when they recalled the scene from earlier.
“Yes, it’s not your fault! We’ll give you the 10,000 Year Frost that you desire. You can get it from our treasure vault.” The two Darkhan Dynasty’s Old Princes became anxious.
They were afraid Duan Ling Tian would kill the three of them out of rage.
