Chapter 1194: Paying a Visit to the True Martial Sect
Translator: EndlessFantasy Translation Editor: EndlessFantasy Translation
At that instant, all Chen Shao Shuai felt was the pressure from the hurricane that charged toward him. It was pressing on him so much that he could hardly breathe.
Before he realized what was happening, the gigantic force pressed down on his body like a giant hammer on his chest and sent him flying backward.
Like an arrow that was shot out of its bow, Chen Shao Shuai was sent flying in a wretched manner. He could not help but spit out a mouthful of blood. His face was extremely pale.
“What the hell is this monster?” Chen Shao Shuai finally came to a halt. Instead of treating his injury first after he regained his senses, he stared at the gigantic figure from afar like an idiot.
He was sent flying by that thing earlier.
At this moment, a sky-piercing sound swept out toward Chen Shao Shuai and caused him to return to his senses. He raised his hand caught the thing that Duan Ling Tian threw at him.
“A grade one Life Recovery Pill!” He saw a familiar pill when he opened his palm. Chen Shao Shuai’s eyes brightened, and he swallowed the pill without any hesitation.
In the next moment, colors returned to his pale face.
“What a strong medicinal efficacy!” Chen Shao Shuai glared at Duan Ling Tian. “Duan Ling Tian, the grade one Life Recovery Pill you just gave me has more than 90% Purity?”
Although his injuries were not heavy, it still surprised him that he recovered in just a blink of an eye.
An ordinary grade one Life Recovery Pill would most likely be unable to do that.
That was why he asked Duan Ling Tian that question.
“Not bad.” Duan Ling Tian nodded before smiling. “But it looks like you have no fate at all with the two bottles of grade one Life Recovery Pills!”
Earlier, Duan Ling Tian had given his words that as long as Chen Shao Shuai could smash the puppet, Hammer, into rubble, he would give him a grade one Spirit Sword that could give a boost of 90% and two bottles of grade one Life Recovery Pills that had more than 90% Purity.
The moment Chen Shao Shuai heard Duan Ling Tian’s words, he was rendered speechless.
While he was speechless, he looked at the three meters tall gigantic puppet in the distance again. “Duan Ling Tian, what’s this puppet monster you created? Why is it so powerful”
This puppet that was named Hammer by Duan Ling Tian had blocked the full attack from his Origin Energy and Profundity.
At that time, he knew that the puppet’s strength far surpassed his!
As a result, he was sent flying by the puppet, powerless to strike back, before he could even regain his senses.
Moreover, the puppet also withheld its strength a little when it was attacking him. Otherwise, he would have died!
He could clearly sense all this when the puppet’s blow landed on him.
“Didn’t you say you’re going to turn it into rubble? Now that your injuries are healed, do you want to give it another go?” Duan Ling Tian asked as he looked at Chen Shao Shuai mockingly.
“Give it a go yourself!” Chen Shao Shuai rolled his eyes at Duan Ling Tian in agitation. Earlier, he did not know the puppet’s strength so it was still acceptable. However, why would he look for trouble now that he knew the puppet’s strength?
Duan Ling Tian shook his head as he chuckled. He lifted his hand and threw a Spatial Ring to Chen Shao Shuai. “For you.”
“What’s this?” Chen Shao Shuai asked with a puzzled expression on his face after he took the Spatial Ring.
“Why don’t you take a look and find out for yourself?” Duan Ling Tian asked.
After Chen Shao Shuai performed the Blood Ownership Claim and saw the items inside, his eyes lit up instantly. “A grade one Spirit Sword and two bottles of pills… Don’t tell me…”
The moment he thought of this, he immediately took the Spirit Sword out from the Spatial Ring. Origin Energy surged out of his body and merged with the sword. In just an instant, a dazzling sword ray skyrocketed from it.
The Heaven and Earth Energy whirred above the sky and gathered into the Heaven and Earth Phenomenon.
First, 4,000 silhouettes of ancient horned dragons appeared before another 3,600 silhouettes of ancient horned dragons appeared.
“A 90% boost!” When Chen Shao Shuai saw the Heaven and Earth Phenomenon above his head, his body began to tremble in excitement.
As for the other two bottles of pills, Chen Shao Shuai could roughly guess what they were. They were undoubtedly the two bottles of grade one Life Recovery Pills with more than 90% Purity that Duan Ling Tian mentioned earlier.
At this moment, Chen Shao Shuai realized the bet that Duan Ling Tian made with him earlier was merely a joke.
Duan Ling Tian had long prepared these items for him.
The moment Chen Shao Shuai thought of this, he immediately thanked Duan Ling Tian, “Thanks, Duan Ling Tian.”
“Since when have you become so polite?” Duan Ling Tian shook his head as he chuckled. A mocking smile appeared on his face once again. “Now that you’ve changed your sword, why don’t you… you know, train with Hammer a little more?”
This time, Chen Shao Shuai merely rolled his eyes at Duan Ling Tian. He could not be bothered to reply.
He was not a masochist after all.
However, he was really curious about this puppet that Duan Lin Tian made from the bottom of his heart.
“Duan Ling Tian, as far as I know, even a puppet that’s mobilized by supreme grade Origin Stones only has the strength equivalent to a Seventh Level Void Transformation Stage martial artist at the most. At most, one can only merge Concept Fragments with it…” Chen Shao Shuai asked curiously, “But, your puppet has strength that has completely surpassed mine… How did you manage to create it?”
Although he had only used a grade two Spirit Sword earlier, he could still wield the strength of an ancient black dragon and 5,000 ancient horned dragons if he unleashed his full strength.
However, the puppet that Duan Ling Tian created was not affected by his strength at all.
From this, it could be deduced that the puppet’s strength far surpassed his.
As for how strong it was, he had no idea at all since the puppet’s attack was just too fast that the Heaven and Earth Phenomenon did not even solidify in time.
“Inscription Formation,” Duan Ling Tian answered Chen Shao Shuai’s question bluntly.
It had nothing to do with him whether Chen Shao Shuai understood his words or not.
“Follow me for a trip.” Suddenly, Duan Ling Tian looked at Chen Shao Shuai as though he was hit by a pang of realization.
Puzzled, Chen Shao Shuai asked, “Where to?”
Although Duan Ling Tian did not reply Chen Shao Shuai, Chen Shao Shuai discovered the answer soon after. This was because Duan Ling Tian had to ask somebody for directions.
The place Duan Ling Tian wanted to bring Chen Shao Shuai to was the True Martial Sect.
After a few days journey, the two of them successfully arrived at the True Martial Sect’s estate.
The True Martial Sect’s estate was extremely tranquil. However, upon closer inspection, one would notice a strangeness in the air.
Some time ago, a commotion had broken out in the True Martial Sect after the news of Sect Leader Wu Lie’s death was transmitted back here. Ever since then, sorrow had descended on the place.
However, the elders and disciples of True Martial Sect did not leave even though Sect Leader Wu Lie was dead.
The True Martial Sect had something that they longed for.
Putting everything aside, just the high-grade Origin Stone Vein that the True Martial Sect controlled was enough to make the elders and disciples of True Martial Sect stay behind.
Standing in the sky above the True Martial Sect’s estate, Duan Ling Tian looked at the estate and announced in a boisterous voice, “I’m Duan Ling Tian, the Sect Leader of Ling Tian Sect!”
Duan Ling Tian’s voice contained Origin Energy and fell from the sky like a bomb. It swept through the entire True Martial Sect’s estate and took everyone by surprise.
“The Sect Leader of Ling Tian Sect?!”
“Is that Duan Ling Tian the Sect Leader of Ling Tian Sect? The one who killed the Sect Leader?”
“Why’s he here?”
“Don’t tell me he’s here to eradicate the roots as well?!”
An uproar erupted in the entire True Martial Sect’s estate. Most of the elders and disciples of True Martial Sect were horrified, only a few remained calm and collected.
Apart from Wu Lie the Sect Leader of True Martial Sect, these few people were the strongest in True Martial Sect.
After they heard the voice resonating from the sky, their faces turned glum. In the next instant, they soared up to the sky and headed in the direction where the voice came from.
Duan Ling Tian hovered quietly in the air. There was no shock in his eyes at all even when these few figures appeared before his eyes.
“Sect Leader Duan!” The people who appeared in front of Duan Ling Tian were three old men over the age of seventy. As soon as the three of them appeared, they bowed respectfully at Duan Ling Tian.
This scene took Chen Shao Shuai who was standing next to Duan Ling Tian by surprise.
Were these three old men sane?
In fact, just over a month ago, Duan Ling Tian had killed their Sect Leader and an Eighth Level Martial Monarch.
However, not only did they not seek revenge from Duan Ling Tian, but they even bowed humbly in front of him?
“Looks like these three old men really don’t want to part with the True Martial Sect’s estate.” Chen Shao Shuai easily guessed the reason.
If they were willing to part with it, they would have left a long time ago instead of staying on.
After all, any normal person should know there was a chance that the Sect Leader of Ling Tian Sect might pay a visit to the True Martial Sect after killing their Sect Leader to eradicate the sect.
Duan Ling Tian stared at the three old men before his eyes calmly and asked casually, “From today onward, the True Martial Sect will become an affiliated sect of Ling Tian Sect. Every year, you’ll hand over 300 supreme-grade Origin Stones and one million high-grade Origin Stones to the Ling Tian Sect. Do you have any objection?”
As for the three old men, colors had drained from their faces the moment they heard the first half of Duan Ling Tian’s words.
A million high-grade Origin Stones were still acceptable, but 300 supreme-grade Origin Stones were certainly impossible with their power.
The Origin Stone Vein the True Martial Sect controlled was only a high-grade Origin Stone Vein. Even if they dispatched a huge amount of manpower, it would still be difficult for them to dig out 300 supreme-grade Origin Stones in a year.
However, the three of them trembled in unison after they heard the murderous intent hiding in the second half of Duan Ling Tian’s words.
“No.” The three of them shook their heads at the same time. It was as though they fear the purple-clad young man would attack them if they took too long to answer.
This purple-clad young man was someone who was able to kill their Sect Leader, Wu Lie.
Wu Lie’s strength was on par with theirs.
However, this was not the only reason they feared the purple-clad young man standing before them.
They heard that over a month ago when he killed Sect Leader Wu Lie of the True Martial Sect, the Sect Leader of Ling Tian Sect had also killed four other men at the Ninth Level Martial Monarch Stage.
The four Ninth Level Martial Monarchs were all leaders of first-rate forces that were at the lower-middle level.
Put aside the fact that they were only powerhouses from a low-level first-rate force, even the top powerhouses of the lower-middle level first-rate forces had all been annihilated.
Due to this reason, they could only own up to their own inferiority.
In the next instant, the three old men bowed and paid their respect to Duan Ling Tian in unison. “Good day, Sect Leader.”
