But, would Duan Ling Tian have sympathy to Shao Fei?
Duan Ling Tian’s gaze was cold and indifferent as he looked at Shao Fei who kowtowed and pleaded for mercy before him, and his heart was cold as ice…
Suddenly, Duan Ling Tian raised his hand.
A sword strike flashed by, killing Shao Fei.
Pill Flame lit up and burnt Shao Fei’s body into ash, dying a graveless death.
Duan Ling Tian didn’t feel happy in the slightest after kill Shao Fei and his brother one after the other, his mood was incomparably heavy.
He couldn’t get rid of Shi Lan’s figure in his mind.
The girl who was full of yearning to the future, that girl that was filled with confidence, was gone just like that.
In his eyes, even if Shao Fei and his brother died a hundred times, they wouldn’t be able to atone for Shi Lan’s life.
Duan Ling Tian took a deep breath and eased up his mood, then left the gorge and Phecda Peak.
On the way, he didn’t encounter anyone.
Practically all the Phecda Peak outer court disciples were gathered at the life and death arena halfway down the mountain.
After leaving Phecda Peak, Duan Ling Tian stepped onto the chain bridge and once again arrived at the main peak, Dubhe Peak, then directly headed to Alkaid peak.
He traveled familiarly to the place of cultivation of the two little girls, but noticed that it was silent within the vast gorge, and the gorge was overgrown with weeds.
The wooden house was tainted with a layer of dust, obviously it had been a long time since someone stayed here.
“Looks like Ke Er and Li Fei ought to have moved out.” Duan Ling Tian left the gorge and asked for the location of Elder Bi’s residence from the Alkaid Peak disciples, then went over.
Duan Ling Tian met Elder Bi as he wished. “Elder Bi.”
Elder Bi shook her head and smiled when she saw Duan Ling Tian. “If it wasn’t for Li Fei telling me, I still wouldn’t know that the Megrez Peak’s Little Freak that gave rise to much discussion two months ago, is actually you.”
Duan Ling Tian laughed embarrassedly, and as he thought about the reason he came to Alkaid Peak, he hurriedly asked. “Elder Bi, I went to the place Little Fei and Ke Er cultivated before, but noticed they weren’t there…”
“Fei is here with me, but she’s now in closed door cultivation. As for that girl Ke Er, she’s now in Alkaid Hall on Dubhe peak.” Elder Bi lightly smiled and said.
“Alkaid Hall?” Duan Ling Tian was stunned.
“Alkaid Hall is the place of cultivation for the peak master of Alkaid Peak, and is situated on a Spirit Point on Dubhe Peak… That place is the best place of cultivation of our Seven Star Sword Sect. The cultivation location of the other peak masters are also there.” Elder Bi slowly explained. “Just like your Megrez Peak’s peak master, he also has a Megrez Hall there.”
Duan Ling Tian came to a sudden understanding and nodded.
As for what best place of cultivation, Duan Ling Tian neither agreed nor disagreed.
The cultivation environment of that so called Spirit Point was impossible to compare to the stalactite cave he lived in now.
“Is Ke Er well?” Duan Ling Tian looked at Elder Bi and asked concernedly.
“Don’t worry, the peak master is extremely fond of this closed door disciple… There’s one thing that you were right on. One month ago, Ke Er broke through to the fourth level of the Origin Core Stage!” As Elder Bi spoke to this point, she glanced deeply at Duan Ling Tian.
Duan Ling Tian shook his head and smiled. “Elder Bi, Little Fei ought to have broken through as well right?”
“Yes.” Elder Bi’s face revealed a gratified smile, she was more and more satisfied toward her disciple. “Fei went into closed door cultivation this time precisely to prepare for charging towards the fourth level of the Origin Core Stage… If there’s no urgent matter…”
Even though Elder Bi didn’t finish speaking, but Duan Ling Tian still understood what Elder Bi meant. “Don’t worry Elder Bi, I don’t have any urgent matter. Since Little Fei at the critical juncture for breaking through, I won’t disturb her, and I’ll come see her next time.”
“Mmm.” Elder Bi nodded in satisfaction when she saw Duan Ling Tian be so sensible.
“Elder Bi.” Suddenly, Duan Ling Tian seemed to have thought of something, and asked under Elder Bi’s wondering gaze. “Do you know of the matter of a female disciple of your Alkaid Peak was forced by someone to fall down the cliff and die?”
Elder Bi nodded. “Yes.”
“Alkaid Peak isn’t taking any action towards this matter?” Duan Ling Tian frowned, after that Shao Ying forced Shi Lan to death, he seems to live unrestrainedly, and wasn’t affected in the slightest.
“I’m furious on that matter as well… But, she jumped off the cliff herself, after all. Moreover, that Phecda Peak disciple didn’t succeed. Coupled with the fact that Phecda Peak disciple is a sixth level Origin Core Stage martial artist, the Phecda Peak is extremely protective of him…” Elder Bi sighed. “In this world, strength represents the worth of one’s life! If the female disciple that jumped off the cliff was a sixth level Origin Core Stage martial artist as well, then our Alkaid Peak would surely follow up this matter until the end.”
“Just because she was dispensable to Alkaid peak, so Alkaid Peak gave up on her like this?” Traces of coldness arose suddenly within Duan Ling Tian’s heart.
His heart was cold like ice.
“This is the general trend, although I personally pity her, but I have the heart but not the strength… What? You know her?” As she finished speaking, Elder Bi asked.
“Yes.” Duan Ling Tian nodded.
“If she’s a friend of yours, and you and Ke Er have that layer of relationship… If you ask Ke Er to ask the peak master to step forwards, then you can punish that Phecda Peak disciple.” Elder Bi looked at Duan Ling Tian and slowly said.
“It isn’t necessary anymore.” Duan Ling Tian shook his head, as he knew that even if the Alkaid Peak’s peak master stepped forwards, they still might not sentence Shao Ying to death, and at most would be sentence him to heavy punishment.
Now, he’s already killed Shao Ying and took revenge for Shi Lan, it wasn’t necessary to rely on anyone.
“It isn’t necessary?” Elder Bi didn’t understand what Duan Ling Tian meant.
“You’ll know very soon. Elder Bi, since Little Fei is cultivating, then I’ll leave first.” Duan Ling Tian bid his farewells then turned and left.
Only leaving behind Elder Bi who was a bewildered expression as she stood on the spot. “This little fellow, what did he mean by what he said earlier?”
After an hour, a piece of news spread throughout Alkaid Peak, causing Elder Bi to be dumbstruck.
“The Megrez Peak’s outer court disciple, Duan Ling Tian, used a cultivation at the fifth level of the Origin Core Stage to kill the Phecda Peak’s sixth level Origin Core Stage outer court disciple, Shao Ying, on the Phecda Peak’s life and death arena!” Now, Elder Bi finally understood why Duan Ling Tian would say it wasn’t necessary anymore.
He’d already taken revenge for that Alkaid Peak female disciple by himself!
She remembered that the Phecda Peak disciple that caused the death of the female disciple was precisely Shao Ying!
Shao Ying was dead just like this?
“As expected of the Megrez Peak’s Little Freak.” A wisp of a bitter smile appeared on the corners of Elder Bi’s mouth, then she shook her head and muttered. “Fei, you’ve found an extraordinary man.”
Possessing a cultivation at the fifth level of the Origin Core Stage at the mere age of 20.
At the same time that the news of Duan Ling Tian killing Shao Ying spread to Alkaid Peak, it also spread to Megrez Peak…
“F**k! Duan Ling Tian killed the Phecda Peak’s Shao Ying?”
“It can’t be… This is too exaggerated!”
“No wonder he dared invite Senior Brother Tang Bai to battle on the life and death arena! I wonder if Senior Brother Tang Bai will still dare ascend to the life and death arena tomorrow.”
“I think it’s slightly dangerous… Senior Brother Tang Bai’s strength might not be stronger than that Shao Ying.”
“We’ll naturally know tomorrow whether Senior Brother Tang Bai dares to ascend the life and death arena or not.”
The entire Megrez Peak was in an uproar because of this piece of news.
All the Megrez Peak disciples were brimming with energy.
Duan Ling Tian’s actions could be considered as bringing honor to Megrez Peak, and they as Megrez Peak disciples all felt honored.
At least, when standing before Phecda Peak disciples in the future, the Phecda Peak disciples were bound to be once lower than them, once they mentioned this matter.
Within the stalactite cave on the mountain peak of Megrez Peak.
Duan Ling Tian sat cross-legged on the stone platform and calmed his heart to cultivate…
The Nine Dragons War Sovereign Technique’s Wyrm Python Form!
The Origin Energy within Duan Ling Tian’s body roiled, and ceaselessly charged at the fourth level Origin Core Stage bottleneck, time after time, as if not knowing exhaustion.
After an unknown amount of time.
Finally, the roiling Origin Energy charged through the bottleneck, and completed a new transformation.
Meanwhile at this time, Duan Ling Tian opened his eyes as well, his eyes were dazzling like an array of stars, and he was entirely brimming with vigor and vitality.
“I’ve broken through!” A joyful smile appeared on Duan Ling Tian’s face.
Lightly clenching his hand into a fist!
Above Duan Ling Tian, the energy of heaven and earth roiled, and 81 ancient mammoth silhouettes condensed into form.
Similar to before, after he broke through to the fifth level of the Origin Core Stage, his strength was an entire 10 ancient mammoths more than ordinary fifth level Origin Core Stage martial artists!
“My current strength is stronger even if compared with a sixth level Origin Core Stage martial artist! I possesses an extra strength of one ancient mammoth more than a sixth level Origin Core Stage martial artist.” A wisp of a smile appeared on the corners of Duan Ling Tian’s mouth.
“Right! I’ve invited that Tang Bai to the life and death arena today.” In next to no time, Duan Ling Tian finally recalled his proper business and hurriedly left the stalactite cave, then jumped onto the mountain peak.
He glanced at the sky and noticed that there was still a period of time before noon.
“Hu!” Duan Ling Tian let out a breath of air. “I can still make it!”
Duan Ling Tian left the peak of Megrez peak then flashed towards the life and death arena halfway down the mountain as if he’d transformed into a gust of wind.
“Now that I’ve broken through to the fifth level of the Origin Core Stage, the Quake Energy ought to have advanced, but I wonder how much stronger it’s become.” On the way, Duan Ling Tian’s mood surged. “Just nice, so long as that Tang Bai ascends the life and death arena, I’ll only use the strength of an ordinary fifth level Origin Core Stage martial artist, then use the Quake Energy to properly play with him….” As he thought up to here, Duan Ling Tian’s eyes suddenly lit up.
Before long, Duan Ling Tian arrived at the vast platform that the life and death arena was situated on.
Now, it was nearly noon.
Duan Ling Tian noticed that incomparably vast streams of people flowed around the life and death arena…
Even to the extent there were many unfamiliar faces.
“There’s so many people in Megrez Peak?” Duan Ling Tian was startled when he saw so many people, as these people practically filled the entire platform, a dense dark mass of people.
“Why haven’t Duan Ling Tian and Senior Brother Tang Bai come yet?”
“Yeah, it’s about to be noon, and they actually haven’t come.”
He’d just come close to the crowd when Duan Ling Tian heard a bust of discussion.
“It’s Duan Ling Tian!” In next to no time, someone noticed Duan Ling Tian.
Meanwhile, the packed crowd automatically opened up a path for Duan Ling Tian, a path that headed to the life and death arena.
After Duan Ling Tian ascended to the life and death arena, he close his eyes and started resting.
Silently waiting for the arrival of Tang Bai.
