Translator: EndlessFantasy Translation Editor: EndlessFantasy Translation
Whoosh! Whoosh! Whoosh!
Just as Duan Ling Tian and Zhou Yi were waging a tit-for-tat struggle, a series of wind-whistling resonated all over the place. A group of people had gone over following the sound.
“It’s Senior Brother Zhou!” Very soon, these people noticed the two men standing stalemate against each other in the sky in the far distance. They recognized one of them. The reason they paid more attention to this guy was that they knew him.
Zhou Yi was a household name n the Lost Stone Forest.
These newcomers were all the Martial Emperor’s disciples and followers of the Lost Stone Forest. They had gone there to watch the show after hearing the commotion.
At first, they thought that it was just some feeble petty fight, but it turned out that Zhou Yi was part of it too.
If they had not seen it for themselves, they would not have believed it at all.
There was actually somebody who dared to come to pick a fight with Zhou Yi, the Martial Emperor’s direct disciple of their Lost Stone Forest!
“Who is he? How dare he pick a fight with Senior Brother Zhou?! Isn’t that just digging his own grave?”
Many people had their attention on Duan Ling Tian. They had concluded that Duan Ling Tian would be the one nursing his defeat in this fight against Zhou Yi even after they had witnessed the Heaven and Earth Phenomenon above Duan Ling Tian’s head.
“The strength of six ancient black dragons and 2,000 ancient horned dragons. Such a strength is only inferior to the few Martial Emperor’s direct disciples in our Lost Stone Forest.” Somebody mused, “It’s unfortunate that he’s going against Senior Brother Zhou, the Martial Emperor’s direct disciple, who’s also the strongest direct disciple of our Lost Stone Forest!”
At the same time, the group of Martial Emperor’s disciples and followers had also learned the ins and outs of the entire fight from the few Martial Emperor’s followers who had been there since just now.
They could not help but gasp loudly, “So, it’s for the sake of a woman!”
“Some time ago, I saw Senior Brother Zhou bring that woman back and she seemed to treat him coldly. I guessed that she must’ve been abducted by Senior Brother Zhou… and I can’t believe that it actually turned out to be true!”
“I wonder what this guy is thinking about actually… With just this mere strength, he wants to snatch that woman away from Senior Brother Zhou?”
“Losing one’s life for the sake of a woman… What an idiot!”
The group of Martial Emperor’s disciples and followers buried their heads in a discussion. They felt that Duan Ling Tian would definitely end up dead.
“You guys are wrong… He will not die!” Right at this moment, one of the Martial Emperor’s followers, who had already been at the scene since the beginning, was staring at the purple-clad young man in the sky not far away as he insisted to the group of people.
“He won’t?” At once, the group of people was perplexed and confused, not knowing why this Martial Emperor’s follower would say so.
“Senior Brother Zhou seems to have taken an oath that he won’t kill him,” the Martial Emperor’s follower, who had successfully grabbed their full attention, replied.
“What!?” Right at that moment, the group of people was stunned again.
It had never crossed their minds that Zhou Yi, the Martial Emperor’s direct disciple of the Lost Stone Forest, would actually swear not to kill this purple-clad young man.
“No wonder he dares to come. So, he actually knows that Senior Brother Zhou won’t kill him after all.” As many people were hit by a pang of realization, they stared at Duan Ling Tian with disdain.
“Even if Senior Brother Zhou doesn’t kill him, he’ll still end up badly.” The Martial Emperor’s follower continued to say in a glum expression, “Just now, Senior Brother Zhou said that he’ll cripple his Dantian and break his four limbs before making him leave the Lost Stone Forest by crawling.”
The moment the words left his mouth, it was like a stone that set off a thousand ripples, absolutely horrifying all of the Martial Emperor’s disciples and followers.
In this world where the strong ruled, crippling a Martial Monarch’s Dantian was already torture enough for one to wish he was dead instead. If he did really break his four limbs, then he really did not leave his opponent any chance at all.
At that moment, they looked at Duan Ling Tian immediately with sympathy.
“Want to cripple me?” Duan Ling Tian, who was surrounded by nine Quasi Royal Grade Spirit Swords, stared at Zhou Yi in the distance and said in a cold voice as his purple robe fluttered without the presence of the wind. “You can try.”
“Of course, I’ll try… Not only will I try, but I’ll also watch how you’re gonna crawl out of this Lost Stone Forest like a wretched dog!” Zhou Yi’s eyes narrowed slightly as a glimmer of cold light flashed across them.
His black robe fluttered as vast, milky-white flames soared up before it was entangled in a burst of colorful energy as he emitted gusts of horrifying aura.
The energy gathered together and merged into the saber that his hand was already holding onto since a long time ago. This narrow saber was none other than the spirit weapon that he had brought with him all along.
Earlier, when he had dodged Duan Ling Tian’s attack, he had already taken his narrow grade one saber out.
If it were not for the strength boost of this grade one spirit saber that catalyzed his movement martial technique, he would not have been able to dodge the eighteen perfect radiant flashes of light that Duan Ling Tian had consolidated through the Nine Dragons’ Radiant Flash.
The speed of the beams of light that Duan Ling Tian had consolidated through the Nine Dragons’ Radiant Flash with the strength of six ancient black dragons and 2,000 ancient horned dragons was terrifying beyond words.
If his movement martial technique had not been catalyzed to be stronger than six ancient black dragons and 5,000 ancient horned dragons, he would not have been able to dodge the eighteen perfect radiant flashes.
From this, one could deduce that when Zhou Yi unleashed all of his strength with his grade one spirit saber, his strength had already exceeded that of six ancient black dragons and 5,000 ancient horned dragons.
Along with the whirling of the Heaven and Earth Energy above Zhou Yi’s head, before the Heaven and Energy Phenomenon could solidify in time, his entire being had already vanished from the spot. He disappeared from the sight of all the Martial Emperor’s followers.
“That’s insanely fast!” The Martial Emperor’s disciples squinted right away. Even they could barely catch a glimpse of the residual trace of Zhou Yi’s breakneck speed.
In just a blink of an eye, they noticed that the residual trace of the streak was heading toward the purple-clad young man with intense fury.
Nine-Tribulation Sword Control Technique!
The moment Zhou Yi disappeared, Duan Ling Tian’s eyes had already turned icy and the nine Quasi-Royal Grade Spirit Swords entangling by his body had already flown out.
Nine sword rays charged out toward Zhou Yi.
Where they brushed past, the air swept out with sharp swishes and they disappeared as soon as they appeared, causing many Martial Emperor’s followers whose cultivation base was much lower to frown right away.
Zhou Yi was charging toward Duan Ling Tian too.
For this reason, right at that second, it looked like Zhou Yi was actively rushing toward the nine sword rays that were hurtling toward him as though he was trying to kill himself.
“He’s just like a mantis trying to stop a chariot!” However, in the face of the nine swift sword rays racing toward him, Zhou Yi only smirked with disdain. With a raise of his hand, the grade one spirit saber in his hand trembled violently before it transformed to become a boundless saber ray.
Swish! Swish! Swish! Swish! Swish!
The saber light shot out rampantly and as if it had transformed into a saber net, it fell and enveloped Duan Ling Tian’s nine swift Quasi-Royal Grade Spirit Swords that were racing out swiftly. It seemed like the light was trying to restrain and suppress them.
Wind rolled out where the saber net swept pass as it set off a series of airwaves, eliciting a series of tyrannical hurricanes that thundered out at once.
For a moment, the gigantic stones in the vicinity quivered violently and some of the lighter ones even tumbled away as a result of the hurricanes. The tumbling only came to a halt after it was a distance away.
It was apparent that Zhou Yi was trying to use this to suppress Duan Ling Tian’s nine Quasi Royal Grade Spirit Swords before he made his move on his opponent who no longer had any weapon.
Nine Dragons’ Radiant Flash!
Unfortunately, as Duan Ling Tian’s heart gave a jolt, this plan of his was going to fall through already.
In just a second, the nine sword rays burst into a great brilliance and reflected eye-blinding, dazzling sword rays like nine hot suns.
The next instance, under the watchful gaze of the others, each of the nine sword rays transformed into nine five-colored Divine Dragons that swept out swiftly in all directions.
The saber net enveloped downwards but they only managed to restrain and suppress less than twenty Divine Dragons in that area.
The remaining sixty-odd five-colored Divine Dragons sailed out and at the same time, more than 120 eyes were locked upon Zhou Yi in unison. Before he could even realize what was happening, those eyes lit up instantly.
Swish! Swish! Swish! Swish!
In the next instance, more than a hundred perfect radiant beams of light flew out all the way toward Zhou Yi.
The moment when these hundred over perfect radiant flashes of light almost touched Zhou Yi’s body, at the most critical moment, he vanished on the spot again and dodged more than a hundred perfect radiant flashes.
Before Zhou Yi appeared, a series of shrill shrieks echoed in the air. It turned out that some of the Martial Emperor’s disciples and followers who could not dodge in time had been pierced by those hundred-odd perfect radiant beams of lights.
Some people had their hands pierced while some had their legs punctured.
Some were even stabbed in their heads or hearts and not long after, three people had already died because their vital spots were accidentally pierced by the perfect radiant flashes of light.
Whoosh! Whoosh! Whoosh! Whoosh!
At the same time, those who were lucky enough not to be injured and those who were pierced at non-vital parts immediately retreated backward and watched Duan Ling Tian from afar.
There was a hint of terror that rose from the bottom of their hearts and in the depth of their eyes.
“Are these all the techniques that you have?” Very soon, a calm voice reverberated as Zhou Yi appeared behind where he had disappeared just now. Earlier, he had managed to retreat before the hundreds of perfect radiant flashes touched his body without a single hair missing.
Duan Ling Tian’s face darkened a little.
Just as Zhou Yi had said, the techniques that he cast out just now were indeed all of the techniques up his sleeves. Yet, he still did not seem to be able to touch Zhou Yi at all.
Zhou Yi was incredibly strong.
Even though he was already mentally prepared for it, Duan Ling Tan could not help but gasp a little, allowing him to be more clear-headed a little.
Swish! Swish! Swish! Swish! Swish!
The nine sword rays went back near Duan Ling Tian’s body and re-transformed to become nine Quasi-Royal Grade Spirit Swords that circled his body as they swirled.
In a heartbeat, Duan Ling Tian combined the nine Quasi-Royal Grade Spirit Swords into one.
His next movement took everyone, including Zhou Yi, by surprise.
With a raise of his hand, Duan Ling Tian retracted the Quasi Royal Grade Spirit Sword in his hand and then stood there empty-handedly before looking at Zhou Yi calmly.
“What’s he doing? Waiting for his death?” One of the Martial Emperor’s followers speculated.
“Perhaps because all of the techniques that he cast out didn’t manage to touch Senior Brother Zhou in the slightest bit, he’s submitted to his fate and decided to wait for his execution.”
“I must admit that he’s actually very strong… I couldn’t even react in time just now when those hundred sharp rays were cast out.”
The group Martial Emperor’s disciples and followers guessed Duan Ling Tian’s train of thoughts. At the same time as they recalled the scene earlier, they were still consumed with fear.
