Chapter 1428: Worse Than A Piece of Crap
Translator: EndlessFantasy Translation Editor: EndlessFantasy Translation
“Come, stomp on me below your feet so that there’s no hope for me to get up forever,” taunted Duan Ling Tian as he stood on the stone platform, looking at the green-clad young man who had been boasting earlier.
It was obvious that the young man who looked graceful did not expect anyone to get up onto the stone platform because of what he said. After a moment of seeming lost, he stepped forward while smirking arrogantly.
“Confidence is awesome. But if you have too much of it, that would turn into arrogance! Do you think you’re that different from the other 23 who took the challenge earlier? Do you think you can defeat me and pass the Moon Illumination Sect’s entrance assessment?” The young man in green ridiculed in his high-pitched voice, “Brat, it’s not that I look down on you… A Mastery Mortal Shedding Stage Martial Cultivator like you isn’t even worth my attention at all! I called you an ant as a favor. To me, you’re just a piece of crap!”
The green-clad young man teased Duan Ling Tian fearlessly without holding back, “Tsk tsk… A Mastery Mortal Shedding Stage cultivator attempting to defeat a Perfection Mortal Shedding Stage cultivator. What nonsense is that?!”
“All of you are embarrassing yourself no matter how many of you come up to challenge us! Do you think we Perfection Mortal Shedding Stage cultivators are just clay that you can play with?”
“The difference in cultivation base is an obvious proof of the difference in our abilities.”
The bunch of Perfection Mortal Shedding Stage cultivators on the high platform stared at Duan Ling Tian in disdain. They did not think that there was a difference between him and the other 23 young geniuses on the Mastery Mortal Shedding Stage who had challenged them earlier.
To them, this purple-clad young man would definitely turn out to be like the 23 young geniuses whereby he would be destined to fail the challenge and miss his opportunity with the Moon Illumination Sect.
Naturally, four of them among the Perfection Mortal Shedding Stage cultivators thought otherwise.
They were Ling Yun, Xiong Hu, and the two young geniuses from Luo Jiang City.
Below the high platform, apart from the City Governors of Mound Hill City and Luo Jiang City as well as the Mastery Mortal Shedding Stage young genius from Luo Jiang City, the rest of them doubted Duan Ling Tian.
The City Governor of Mound Hill City knew about Duan Ling Tian very well. He was well-versed with Duan Ling Tian’s ability.
Meanwhile, the City Governor of Luo Jiang City and the young genius next to him had witnessed Duan Ling Tian’s ability the day before. They knew about Duan Ling Tian’s powerful ability which was incomparable with anyone on the Perfection Mortal Shedding Stage at all.
“A piece of crap?” Upon hearing what the young man said, instead of getting mad, Duan Ling Tian was grinning. “I’m very curious… What kind of expression would you have when you’re defeated by a piece of crap? What are you if you’re worse than a piece of crap?”
“Stop your foolish nonsense! What you said would never happen,” mocked the young man with scorn on his face. “A piece of crap like you… It’ll take me three hits at the most to defeat you!”
“Really?” The smile on Duan Ling Tian’s face was getting wider and wider. He subsequently took a step forward and initiated the attack without waiting for the young man to fight him.
At that moment, a layer of faint silver ray flashed on Duan Ling Tian’s body as if his body was covered by a silver armor.
Due to the True Energy carried by his 52 Saint Veins, everything happened in an instant.
As soon as the silver ray flashed all over his body, Duan Ling Tian stomped and exploded towards the young man in green like a cannon.
The boost in his strength that came from the Silver Shirt caused his True Energy to be unleashed without him holding back.
Even without having to perform any movement technique, Duan Ling Tian’s speed was terrifying.
He arrived inches away from the green-clad man in the blink of an eye.
Witnessing Duan Ling Tian’s speed, the young man was horrified. It was clear that he did not expect a Mastery Mortal Shedding Stage Martial Cultivator to display such speed.
His speed was similar to Duan Ling Tian’s even if he gave all he had as well as performed a movement technique.
“Being swift doesn’t mean that you have a powerful attack ability! I’ll show you the difference between Mastery Mortal Shedding Stage and Perfection Mortal Shedding Stage now. How dare you compare your insignificant ability to mine?” The young man growled in his deep voice and advanced towards Duan Ling Tian.
He shook his hand fan which was covered with a layer of True Energy in a flash and subsequently tossed it towards Duan Ling Tian. “I’d love to see how you’re going to take this attack from me!”
The air seemed to be rent like a piece of paper wherever the hand fan passed. A rapid fan ray was dashing towards Duan Ling Tian.
Body and Arrow Synchronization!
Duan Ling Tian took out his Sun Shooting Bow slowly and shot an arrow as he lifted his arm. As he performed the Body and Arrow Synchronization, he disappeared from the young man’s field of vision in the blink of an eye.
“That’s impossible!” The young man’s pupils shrunk as shock and disbelief appeared on his face.
The man on the Mastery Mortal Shedding Stage in purple seemed to vanish from his sight without a trace. He could not capture his trail at all.
“Nothing is impossible.” Subsequently, he heard a voice coming from behind him. Although the voice was calm, he was so terrified that his soul seemed to escape his body.
‘When did he get behind me?’ Just as he thought of that, he felt a gush of majestic energy pressing on his back like a giant hammer. He felt like he was being buried by a collapsed mountain.
In the next second, he felt his body shudder while his organs experienced a violent tremor. Subsequently, he felt like he was shot across the sky without control over his body.
The young man in green fell below the platform. He happened to fall not far away from the 23 Mastery Mortal Shedding Stage young geniuses who had been disqualified earlier.
High-spirited earlier, his face was now filled with dirt and dust.
The 23 Mastery Mortal Shedding Stage young geniuses who had been disqualified were initially embarrassed by the teasing earlier, but now they were taking pleasure in the green-clad man’s misery. The most boastful man had been defeated!
“Tsk tsk… Calling us Mastery Mortal Shedding Stage ants and a piece of crap? It seems like you’re worse than an ant or a piece of crap!”
“Weren’t you boasting just now? And now you’re disqualified?”
“So, you lost because you underestimated us Mastery Mortal Shedding Stage cultivators? Your jaw must be on the floor now, am I right?”
The 23 Mastery Mortal Shedding Stage young geniuses mocked the green-clad man one after another.
At that moment, most of them below and on the platform had their eyes fixed on Duan Ling Tian.
Even the outer court elder of the Moon Illumination Sect, Dong Chong, and the other two outer court deacons were dumbstruck. It was clear that what happened shocked them as well.
Duan Ling Tian had defeated a Perfection Mortal Shedding Stage Martial Cultivator in the blink of an eye!
Was that really the doing of a Mastery Mortal Shedding Stage Martial Cultivator?
The other City Governors from the 16 cities were discussing among themselves while looking at Fang Hui enviously, elevating Fang Hui to cloud nine.
“I think I’ve seen him before. He was standing next to the City Governor of Mound Hill City, Fang Hui. Seems like he’s a young genius from Mound Hill City.”
“Among the young geniuses from Mound City Hill, the only powerful one I know is Su Qi. Could he be Su Qi?”
“He isn’t Su Qi! I heard that Elder Liu Huan’s direct disciple, Zhou Qi, took Su Qi away half a year ago, so Su Qi should be their inner court disciple now.”
“I can’t believe that the City Governor of Mound Hill City has gotten such a freak after losing Su Qi.”
“Duan Ling Tian.” Fang Hui looked at the purple silhouette on the stone platform with fondness in his eyes.
Many of the Perfection Mortal Shedding Stage young geniuses on the stone platform snapped back to their senses after a moment of being dumbstruck and shouted at Duan Ling Tian.
“That must be staged!”
“It’s impossible! Even if a Mastery Mortal Shedding Stage Martial Cultivator is capable of defeating a Perfection Mortal Shedding Stage, it’s impossible that he could’ve been defeated in such a ridiculous way… I understand now! The fella must have given way to him on purpose.”
“I want the both of them disqualified!”
“That’s right! Disqualify the both of them!”
Naturally, some of the Perfection Mortal Shedding Stage young geniuses who had great abilities figured what was going on.
“His speed was insanely fast!”
“That speed… Is that what a Master Mortal Shedding Stage is capable of performing? Even I, having the ability of a peak level Mastery Mortal Shedding Stage cultivator, don’t have a speed as fast as his.”
“If he’s really on Mastery Mortal Shedding Stage… Isn’t that wild?”
Those who had spoken were Perfection Mortal Shedding Stage young geniuses who had an acute sense of judgment and ability.
The young man in green managed to stand up strenuously after consuming a Healing Medicinal Pill. He glared viciously at Duan Ling Tian again. “How dare you disqualify me, Deng Yu? You’re dead! Dead to me!”
Although Deng Yu knew that his ability was far behind Duan Ling Tian’s from the fight earlier, that did not stop him from resenting him.
Duan Ling Tian had gotten him disqualified. Duan Ling Tian had ruined his dreams of getting into the Moon Illumination Sect!
“Uncle, this can’t be happening! This can’t be happening! I’m already 37 this year… I’ll be more than 40 when the Moon Illumination Sect’s entrance assessment takes place again five years later. I won’t be able to participate,” said Deng Yu through True Energy Voice Transmission as he looked at one of the middle-aged men next to Dong Chong. His tone was filled with reluctance. “Uncle, there must be something that you can do. There must be something that you can do, am I right?”
“Little Yu, I’m just an outer court deacon. I don’t have the right to take people who are disqualified into the sect,” The middle-aged man was one of the outer court deacons standing next to Dong Chong. His name was Deng Wei.
“Uncle, I don’t accept this! I don’t!” Deng Yu’s face was filled with grief.
“Little Yu, don’t you worry… Although I can’t get you into the sect, avenging you is a piece of cake! Even if the fella from Mound Hill City gets into the Moon Illumination Sect, I won’t let him live for long.”
“Destroying you would mean destroying our Deng Clan’s future… I definitely won’t let him go!” A cold gleam flashed through Deng Wei’s eyes as he spoke fiercely through True Energy Voice Transmission.
“Yes! Kill him, kill him!” Hearing what Deng Wei said, the grief on Deng Yu’s face faded away slowly.
Duan Ling Tian glanced at Deng Yu coldly and did not bother to look at him any longer. Instead, he looked at the outer court elder of the Moon Illumination Sect, Dong Chong. “Elder Dong Chong, I’m considered to have passed the entrance assessment, am I right?”
“Yes! Yes!” Dong Chong finally snapped back to his senses hearing what Duan Ling Tian said. The entire scenario just now made him lost for a while.
As a Moon Illumination outer court disciple went up to the stone platform to escort Duan Ling Tian away, Dong Chong looked at him while smiling. “Little fella, I’d like to take you as my direct disciple. Are you willing to do that?”
The ability Duan Ling Tian displayed earlier made him want to keep the purple-clad man to himself.
Everyone gasped as soon as Dong Chong said that.
