Chapter 288: Burning Anxiety
Translator: KurazyTolanzuraytor Editor: Jay
Since the day the two little pythons left, and after Duan Ling Tian returned, he’d cultivated in the stalactite cave all the time, and didn’t leave the top of Megrez Peak…
Of course, he was most worried that the two little fellows would return and be unable to find him.
Luckily, he’d bought quite a lot of meat from the Trade Hall the other time, and it was sufficient for him to eat for a few months.
Time passed quickly in the twinkling of an eye.
In the blink of an eye, two months had passed.
On the stone platform in the stalactite cave.
Duan Ling Tian sat cross-legged there, cultivating with a calm heart…
After an unknown amount of time.
Suddenly, Duan Ling Tian opened his eyes and a trace of a dazzling lustre appeared in his eyes that had flowing lights revolving within.
“Only a little bit and I can break through to the fifth level of the Origin Core Stage!” A trace of a smile appeared on the corners of Duan Ling Tian’s mouth.
After he returned to his senses, he couldn’t help but sigh with a slight sense of loss. “Those two little fellows wouldn’t have settled down in the primeval forest right? It’s already been two months and they haven’t returned… Looks like I should find some time to continue looking for them in the primeval forest.”
In next to no time, Duan Ling Tian’s gaze descended onto his two hands.
Now, even though Duan Ling Tian’s hands were still smooth as jade like before, but they weren’t as fair and delicate as before, and this was all the results of him frequently bathing under the sun on the peak of the mountain for these two months.
His skin had finally recovered to a comparatively normal color.
Now, Duan Ling Tian was much more matured than before, as he’d already turned 20.
“It’s been two months… I should go see those two little girls.” Duan Ling Tian’s face revealed a light smile when he thought of Li Fei and Ke Er, then he stood up and left the stalactite cave.
Before long, Duan Ling Tian left the mountain peak and arrived nearby the Trade Hall.
“Duan Ling Tian!” Suddenly, Duan Ling Tian heard an urgent cry.
He glanced over, and a Megrez Peak disciple walked over from afar.
Duan Ling Tian frowned, and his face slightly sank, could it be that it’s again someone that Elder Zhao Lin sent?
“Duan Ling Tian, you’ve finally appeared.” Duan Ling Tian quickly noticed that this Megrez Peak disciple seemed to not have been send by Zhao Lin, moreover, when the disciple saw Duan Ling Tian, he seemed to heave a breath of relief.
“You are?” Duan Ling Tian had a questioning expression, as he didn’t recognize this Megrez Peak disciple.
This Megrez Peak disciple was a young man with a thin and weak figure, and he looked at Duan Ling Tian. “I’m a friend of Hu Li’s.”
Duan Ling Tian’s gaze lit up when he heard what the young man said, and his expression eased up as he lightly smiled. “Hu Li’s friend is my friend, what’re you called?”
Hu Li, one of the two friends he’s gotten to know that day in the primeval forest.
A straightforward young man.
That day, the experiences in the primeval forest also made him take Hu Li as a good friend.
“I’m He Chun… Duan Ling Tian, come with me to see Hu Li. One month ago, he came here to look for you… I and Hu Li were waiting for you for half a month, but you didn’t appear, and he returned to Phecda Peak half a month ago.” He Chun sighed, and a trace of dejection appeared on his face.
Duan Ling Tian’s heart jerked when he saw He Chun’s expression. “What? Has something happened to Hu Li?”
At the first moment, Duan Ling Tian recalled that Shao Fei who’d been members of the same small team as him, Shi Lan, and Hu Li in the primeval forest two months ago.
Could it be that Shao Fei asked his old brother to take revenge on Hu Li?
He Chun nodded, and a trace of melancholy and unwillingness appeared in his eyes.
“Take me to see Hu Li! What the heck actually happened?” Duan Ling Tian urged He Chun to lead the way. He asked as he walked swiftly, his face filled with anxiety.
Two months ago, in the primeval forest, Hu Li was willing to die to fight for a chance for survival for Duan Ling Tian…
Since that moment, he’s taken Hu Li as a friend of life and death in his heart!
Now, when he heard something had happened to Hu Li, he had a burning anxiety in his heart.
At the same time, he urgently wanted to know what the heck happened to Hu Li…
Right when Duan Ling Tian and He Chun wanted to step onto the chain bridge, a figure that was swift like the wind obstructed before Duan Ling Tian’s group of two.
This was a young man around the age of 25, he had handsome and refined features, and a pair of incomparably fierce eyes.
“Senior Brother Tang Bai!” He Chun couldn’t help but exclaim in surprise when he saw this young man.
Meanwhile, many Megrez Peak disciples saw this scene, and surrounded over.
“It’s Duan Ling Tian!”
“He’s finally appeared!”
“And I still thought that he was intentionally hiding because he knew Senior Brother Tang Bai was looking for him all over.”
“Senior Brother Tang Bai has searched for him for more than a month, he’s finally appeared.”
The crowd of Megrez Peak disciples that surrounded over discussed animatedly.
“F**k off!” A trace of crimson red appeared in Duan Ling Tian’s eyes, as he stared at the young man that obstructed his path and shouted out in a cold voice.
Duan Ling Tian’s current thoughts were all on Hu Li, and he urgently wanted to see Hu Li now, wanting to know what exactly happened to Hu Li.
“Duan Ling Tian is too formidable, directly asking Senior Brother Tang Bai to f**k off!”
“He couldn’t be unaware of Senior Brother Tang Bai right? Senior Brother Tang Bai isn’t someone that Liu Yu from two months ago can compare to.”
“Senior Brother Tang Bai’s face has gone grim, this Duan Ling Tian is surely going to suffer a great misfortune.”
“I really wonder where he got the courage. Even if he killed two fourth level Origin Core Stage martial artists, but what about it? Senior Brother Tang Bai is a famous outer court disciple in our Megrez Peak, an existence at the sixth level of the Origin Core Stage.”
The crowd of Megrez Peak disciples looked at Duan Ling Tian with gazes filled with pity.
Even though Duan Ling Tian had shocked all of them two months ago, but as far as they were concerned, even if Duan Ling Tian was any more heaven defying, he was still only a fourth level Origin Core Stage martial artist… And even if he was even more heaven defying, he would at most be equal to a fifth level Origin Core Stage martial artist.
Faced with a sixth level Origin Core Stage martial artist, he would only be bashed!
Tang Bai’s expression went gloomy.
On Megrez Peak, there hadn’t been a single outer court disciple that dared be so arrogant before him…
“Duan Ling Tian, you wouldn’t be thinking that I’m like that trash, Liu Yu, right?” Tang Bai looked at Duan Ling Tian, and a wisp of a sneer appeared on the corners of his mouth, his eyes contained a piercingly cold light as he stared fixedly at Duan Ling Tian.
Duan Ling Tian wasn’t afraid in the slightest as he looked at Tang Bai and said in a low voice. “You’re looking for me, for the same reason as Liu Yu?”
Tang Bai sneered. “It’s good that you know… If you’re sensible, then quickly hand it over! Otherwise, I’m not trash like that Liu Yu.”
Duan Ling Tian suddenly burst out into a laugh when he heard Tang Bai, and his face was covered with a layer of coldness. “Is that so? Since that’s the case, I presume you ought to dare agree to my invitation to the life and death arena right?”
Duan Ling Tian never imagined that Zhao Lin would actually go on endlessly like this.
First sending Liu Yu, then now sending another Tang Bai.
However, he urgently wanted to see Hu Li now, and didn’t have time to talk nonsense with Tang Bai here, so he directly brought out the life and death arena, wanting to make Tang Bai retreat after becoming aware of the difficulties!
Even though Tang Bai was a sixth level Origin Core Stage martial artist, he wasn’t afraid!
“You want to invite me to the life and death arena?” Tang Bai was obviously stunned when he heard Duan Ling Tian.
Even though he heard about Duan Ling Tian using the life and death arena to scare Liu Yu to retreat two months ago, as far as he was concerned, it was because Liu Yu was cowardly!
Even if this Duan Ling Tian was any more mysterious, and his method any more bizarre, but he was still only a fourth level Origin Core Stage martial artist…
In the eyes of he, a sixth level Origin Core Stage martial artist, a fourth level Origin Core Stage martial artist was no different from an ant!
If he wanted to kill Duan Ling Tian, it was even easier than cutting grass.
What Duan Ling Tian said caused the spectating crowd of Megrez Peak disciples to be completely stunned.
They only recovered from their shock after a long time.
“I didn’t hear wrongly right? This Duan Ling Tian wants to invite Senior Brother Tang Bai to battle in the life and death arena?”
“Is he courting death?”
The crowd of Megrez Peak disciples were all shocked by what Duan Ling Tian said.
As far as they were concerned, even if a fourth level Origin Core Stage martial artists skills were any more brilliant, it would still be impossible to defeat a sixth level Origin Core Stage martial artist.
There was a difference of an entire strength of 20 ancient mammoths amongst the two!
The strength of 20 ancient mammoths was a chasm that’s difficult to leap over…
“What? Dare to obstruct me, but don’t dare to agree to my life and death arena invitation?” Duan Ling Tian stared at Tang Bai with a cold and indifferent gaze, and mocked. “If you don’t dare, then quickly f**k off. I still have urgent matters to attend to, and don’t have time to talk nonsense with you!”
“What did you say? You said… I don’t dare?” Tang Bai was amused to laughter by Duan Ling Tian, and he laughed arrogantly. “Duan Ling Tian, since you actually want to court death, then I’ll grant your wish! I agree to ascend the life and death arena to battle you! It’s up to you is we go over directly right now, or set a time… I can give you some time to arrange your funeral affairs.”
“Tomorrow at noon, I’ll fight you in the life and death arena, it won’t end until one of us dies!” Duan Ling Tian’s eyes squinted, and he had a face full of killing intent. “Now, f**k off!”
“Alright, tomorrow at noon, I’ll wait for you in the life and death arena! I hope that at that time, you won’t be cowardly and not show up.” Tang Bai stood aside, and trace of a smile appeared on the corners of his mouth.
He’d achieved his objective, and his mood was incomparably at ease.
As far as he was concerned, so long as he forced Duan Ling Tian into a situation of life and death, he wasn’t afraid that Duan Ling Tian wouldn’t hand over the things Elder Zhao Lin wanted.
At that time, he would be able to obtain the generous rewards that Elder Zhao Lin provided.
“I’m worried you wouldn’t dare come.” Duan Ling Tian who had a burning anxiety in his hearts brought He Chun along as he walked out in large strides, and when he heard what Tang Bai said, he couldn’t help but sneer as he replied.
“He Chun, let’s go! Take me to see Hu Li.” Duan Ling Tian’s tone was incomparably anxious and his figure flashed out to step onto the chain bridge and move towards Dubhe Peak.
“Duan Ling Tian, you’re too rash… That Tang Bai is a famous outer court disciple in our Megrez Peak, an existence at the sixth level of the Origin Core Stage.” He Chun followed by Duan Ling Tian’s side, and had a bitter smile on his face.
He never imagined that Duan Ling Tian would actually invite Tang Bai to ascend to the life and death arena and conduct a bloody battle that wouldn’t end until one party died.
Similar to the crowd of Megrez Peak disciples, he didn’t look favorably on Duan Ling Tian.
At the same time, the entire Megrez Peak started spreading the news of Duan Ling Tian inviting Tang Bai to battle on the life and death arena tomorrow, and Tang Bai had agreed…
For a time, the entire Megrez Peak was in an uproar!
“Two months ago, I just happened to be in closed door cultivation and missed that life and death arena battle. I must not miss tomorrow’s battle.”
“Truly causing one to look forward to it, one is our Megrez Peak’s Little Freak, the other is our Megrez Peak’s famous sixth level Origin Core Stage outer court disciple.”
