Chapter 291: The Death of Shao Ying
Translator: KurazyTolanzuraytor Editor: Jay
The Sword Drawing Arts stressed upon a single word, speed.
Perhaps, the might of the Sword Drawing Arts was inferior to most high grade Profound Rank sword skills.
But in terms of speed, high grade Profound Rank sword skills could only fall far behind.
“Your sword skill is pretty good, but your strength is completely not on the same level as mine. Before formidable strength, you are unable to stop me!” A wisp of disdain appeared on the corners of Shao Ying’s mouth, and coldness leapt up within his eyes, the hand that help his grade seven spirit sword trembled and he was about to use his entire strength to directly knock away the grade seven spirit sword in Duan Ling Tian’s hand, and penetrate Duan Ling Tian’s throat.
“Is that so?” Right at this instant, Duan Ling Tian moved, his other hand instantly flashed out, and he pointed out a finger that bore through clouds and gave birth to mist.
The Finishing Touch of the Dragons Finishing Touch!
His finger pointed out, and piecing whistling sounds deafened the ears, as it pointed out towards Shao Ying’s eyes.
The speed of this point wasn’t much slower than the Sword Drawing Arts.
“Do you think that only you know martial skills other than sword skills?” Shao Ying sneered, his other hand moved as well, abruptly changing into a claw that tore through the sky and grabbed toward Duan Ling Tian’s left hand that Duan Ling Tian used to point out a finger with.
Duan Ling Tian started laughing.
Although Shao Ying was slightly astonished when he saw the smile that suddenly appeared on Duan Ling Tian’s face, but his claw strike still fiercely descended, grabbing out at Duan Ling Tian, wanting to hold onto Duan Ling Tian’s left hand, then use the sword in his right hand to exert force and penetrate Duan Ling Tian’s throat.
He wasn’t able to do two things at once after all!
At the instant that a smile appeared on Duan Ling Tian’s face, the finger that Duan Ling Tian pointed out instantly turned to intercept Shao Ying’s claw strike.
“You’re overestimating yourself!” Shao Ying sneered when he saw this scene.
As far as he was concerned, even if the claw he executed with a martial skill didn’t utilize the strength of his spirit weapon, it was still powered by the strength of 80 ancient mammoths.
Whereas the finger Duan Ling Tian pointed out didn’t have a spirit weapon to rely on as well, and only had the strength of 70 ancient mammoths.
Duan Ling Tian could only be trampled on by him!
Only when the finger Duan Ling Tian pointed out and his claw descended down to collide with each other, did Shao Ying’s expression change… First it was astonishment, then it was disbelief.
Subsequently, Shao Ying’s shrill cry sounded out from deep within Shao Ying’s throat, as if he’d suffered utmost pain.
Under the gazes of everyone present, Duan Ling Tian’s finger penetrated into Shao Ying’s palm, and fresh blood splattered everywhere!
Not to mention this, everyone quickly noticed that at the same time that Shao Ying’s emitted shrill cries, his entire body vibrated, even the hand that held the sword was now powerless, and the grade seven spirit sword slipped from his hand and dropped to the ground.
“What’s going on?”
All the Phecda Peak disciples had bewildered expressions as they looked at Shao Ying who was emitting shrill cries as he ‘danced’ on the life and death arena, and completely didn’t know what had happened.
“Crackle crackle…” Before long, a burst of clear sounds of bones fracturing sounded in their ears.
“The sound is coming from Senior Brother Shao Ying’s body!”
“Oh my god! What did Duan Ling Tian do to him!?”
The expressions of all the Phecda Peak disciples went pale.
And now, Duan Ling Tian who was on the life and death arena, had a cold smile on the corners of his mouth.
This Shao Ying really thought he was overestimating himself?
Earlier, when his Dragon Finishing Touch’s finger pointed onto Shao Ying’s palm, he’s used the Quake Energy to directly penetrate Shao Ying’s carpal bone.
The terrifying Quake Energy used Shao Ying’s carpal bone as the starting point to spread onto the bones in Shao Ying’s entire body within a blink of an eye…
Instantly quaking Shao Ying’s bones to the point they shattered.
Shao Ying’s body was penetrated by countless shattered bones, and after emitting shrill cried for some time, his voice stopped.
When Shao Ying died, his eyes were wide like saucers, and even until death he didn’t know what had happened.
Perhaps, even till death he couldn’t wrap his head around it.
Even if not using a spirit weapon, why would Duan Ling Tian whose strength was far inferior to him be able to execute a martial skill and kill him with bare hands?
Along with Duan Ling Tian withdrawing his attacks, Shao Ying’s body was unable to hold on any longer, and crashed onto the floor, completely without any signs of life.
The surrounding of the life and death arena was deathly silent.
Shao Ying died just like that?
Killed by Duan Ling Tian just like that?
“I and Shao Ying both didn’t use Origin Energy, the might of his claw strike was comparable to the strength of 80 ancient mammoths… Whereas the might of my finger strike was comparable to the strength of 71 ancient mammoths! It just happens to be within the scope of effect of the Quake Energy.” Duan Ling Tian coldly swept Shao Ying’s corpse with his gaze, and thought in his heart as he thought about the scene from before.
If he and Shao Ying used grade seven spirit swords, the difference in strength between the two of them was too huge, and had exceeded the scope of effect of the Quake Energy, and even is he utilized the Quake Energy, it wouldn’t be able to have any effect.
So, he could only choose to use his wits.
Make Shao Ying give up the amplification of strength from the grade seven spirit sword, and fight with him bare handed.
Of course, in the eyes of Shao Ying, even if he didn’t use a spirit weapon, he would similarly be able to easily trample on Duan Ling Tian who didn’t use a spirit weapon as well…
Unexpectedly, Duan Ling Tian instead had a monstrous thing like the Quake Energy to rely on.
So long as the difference between the opponent’s strength and Duan Ling Tian’s strength was within the strength of 10 ancient mammoths, he would be able to rely on the Quake Energy to overcome the strong with a weaker strength!
Of course, there was a risk in Duan Ling Tian doing this.
If Shao Ying chose to execute the Cutthroat Sword and swing his sword to block Duan Ling Tian’s finger strike, then he would be unable to use the Quake Energy as well.
Once it was at that time, he could only use an offense inscription if he wanted to kill Shao Ying!
It could be said, that Shao Ying’s choice earlier caused him to be bound to die.
Of course, even if Shao Ying chose differently, he was still bound to die, only in a different way.
“I still have to thank you for saving an offense inscription for me.” Duan Ling Tian glanced at Shao Ying, and a wisp of a sneer appeared on the corners of his mouth, the dense killing intent that condensed deep within his gaze had dispersed slightly.
“Shi Lan, I’ve taken revenge for you.” Duan Ling Tian secretly sighed, and silently said in his heart.
“Haha… Hahahaha…” Suddenly, a wave of loud laughter broke the silence in the surrounding of the life and death arena.
It was Hu Li who’d recovered from his shock, and laughed cheerfully, then said in a sonorous voice. “Duan Ling Tian, thank you! If Shi Lan is aware in hell, she would be able to rest in peace.”
Duan Ling Tian nodded, then casually put away Shao Ying’s grade seven spirit sword and Spatial Ring, and then came to Hu Li’s side before leaving the vast platform the life and death arena is located on with Hu Li and He Chun.
The crowd of Phecda Peak disciples gazed from afar at Duan Ling Tian’s group of three until they left, and only then did the crowd go into an uproar.
“Oh my god! This Duan Ling Tian actually killed Shao Ying.”
“Shao Ying is a sixth level Origin Core Stage martial artists, and is able to exert the strength of 102 ancient mammoths when relying on his grade seven spirit sword.”
“So what? Even though Duan Ling Tian is only at the fifth level of the Origin Core Stage, and is only able to exert the strength of 90 ancient mammoths when relying on his grade seven spirit sword… But he still killed Shao Ying! Truly beyond belief!”
“How the heck did this Duan Ling Tian kill Shao Ying? Too terrifying!”
Today, Phecda Peak was bound to not be at peace.
Shao Ying, the outstanding outer court disciple of Phecda Peak who had a cultivation at the sixth level of the Origin Core Stage, a figure that was known even within the entire Seven Star Sword Sect’s outer court.
However, he was killed just like that!
Moreover, he was killed by a fifth level Origin Core Stage outer court disciple.
“Duan Ling Tian, you’re too strong. You pointed a finger and killed Shao Ying.” On the way back, the gloominess that had accumulated between Hu Li’s brows for many days had completely dispersed, and he was extremely excited and cheerful.
Duan Ling Tian lightly smiled.
He Chun supported Hu Li, and a tremendous changed had occurred in his gaze when he looked at Duan Ling Tian.
He never imagined that Duan Ling Tian’s strength was so terrifying!
Duan Ling Tian being a fifth level Origin Core Stage martial artist already caused him to feel incomparably shocked.
When he saw Duan Ling Tian kill Shao Ying, his heart shook, and even now it still hadn’t completely calmed.
“Hu Li, do you know where that Shao Fei’s residence is?” A trace of icy cold killing intent flashed within Duan Ling Tian’s eyes as he slowly asked.
In a spacious gorge.
Shao Fei’s mood was elated as he whistled and lay on the grass, bathing in the sun to his heart’s content…
Suddenly, a burst of sounds fell into his hears, causing his gaze to suddenly shine.
“Brother, you’ve returned!” Shao Fei’s hands propped onto the ground, and he said joyously as he sat up.
But, when he saw the young man that appeared before him, his expression went completely pale. “Duan… Duan Ling Tian, aren’t you deciding life and death with my brother on the life and death arena? Why are you here!?”
“Why do you think I’m here?” Duan Ling Tian gazed calmly at Shao Fei as he spoke indifferently, with a tone that didn’t contain any feelings.
Moreover, the more he was like this, the more scary it was to Shao Fei, and Shao Fei’s face was ghastly pale as he unceasingly swayed his head. “No… Impossible… It’s impossible! How could you possibly defeat my brother? Impossible, impossible!”
“Impossible?” A trace of ridicule appeared on the corners of Duan Ling Tian’s mouth. “What’s impossible about it? In the primeval forest two months ago, didn’t you think it would be impossible for me to survive when you made me battle the Elephant Rhino?”
Shao Fei’s body trembled, although he still wasn’t willing to believe all this was true, but he’d realized that milk was already spilt, and even if he wasn’t willing, the facts were like this and he was unable to change it.
Shao Fei instantly fell to the ground and lay before Duan Ling Tian with a ghastly pale face. “Duan Ling Tian, I’m already a cripple. Let me off… Let me off. I beg you, I beg you…”
How familiar was this scene before Duan Ling Tian to him.
Two months ago, Shao Fei similarly lay before Shi Lan, and asked Shi Lan to plead for mercy on his behalf…
And Shi Lan gave in because of this.
But the result?
Shi Lan, met with a tragic death!
Hu Li, crippled!
Shao Fei’s actions and voice when pleading for mercy causing the hatred concealed deep within Duan Ling Tian’s heart to once again leap up.
His eyes transformed into a crimson red color as he stared at Shao Fei. “Shao Fei, do you remember what I told you two months ago?”
Shao Fei’s face was deathly pale when he heard this, and his body trembled.
Duan Ling Tian started laughing when he saw Shao Fei’s reaction, he laughed extremely coldly. “Looks like you still clearly remember… I told you that if you were to get any ideas, then I’ll make you die a graveless death!”
“Duan Ling Tian, spare me! I beg you… I beg you!” Shao Fei fiercely knocked his head onto the ground, knocking to the point his head was bruised and bled, as if wanting to arouse Duan Ling Tian’s sympathy.
