Chapter 298: The Number One Disciple In The Outer Court
Translator: KurazyTolanzuraytor Editor: Jay
“Scoundrel, what are you thinking of? So deeply absorbed in it?” Li Fei noticed Duan Ling Tian’s unnatural expression and asked with a wondering expression. Her tone seemed to have concern mixed within.
“It’s nothing, I just suddenly thought of something.” Duan Ling Tian shook his head, and didn’t tell Li Fei about the disappearance of the two little pythons.
He didn’t want Li Fei to be worried like him.
Duan Ling Tian and Li Fei chatted, and unknowingly, they chatted about the outer court martial competition three months from now.
“Scoundrel, I heard the outer court martial competition’s rules have been changed.” Li Fei suddenly said to Duan Ling Tian.
“Rules have been changed? What rules have been changed?” Duan Ling Tian was stupefied, and asked.
“I heard from Master that when all is said and done, the change of the rules this time is because of you…” As she spoke up to here, Li Fei rolled her eyes at Duan Ling Tian, although she knew her man’s ability was great, but when she heard her man was able to kill even a sixth level Origin Core Stage outer court disciple, she couldn’t help but be shocked in her heart.
If Duan Ling Tian used an offense inscription, she wouldn’t feel it to be strange.
But the problem was… Duan Ling Tian didn’t use an offense inscription from the beginning until the end, and completely used his true strength to kill his opponent.
“Because of me?” What Li Fei said caused Duan Ling Tian to be extremely puzzled, what has the Seven Star Sword Sect outer court martial competition changing rules have to do with him?
“Yes.” Li Fei nodded, then looked at Duan Ling Tian with a wondering gaze, and didn’t continue beating around the bush and directly said. “I heard from Master that since the news of you killing the Phecda Peak’s sixth level Origin Core Stage outer court disciple, Shao Ying, was spread out, besides out Alkaid Peak’s and your Megrez Peak’s Peak Masters, the Peak Masters of the other four great sword peaks specially started a meeting of the six peaks last month.
“The content of the meeting was targeted towards the outer court martial competition three months from now. In the past outer court martial competitions, outer court disciples must have entered the Seven Star Sword Sect for less than three years to participate… But this time, the Peak Masters of the six peaks instead decided to remove this limitation! This time, so long as one is an outer court disciple, anyone from the six peaks of the Seven Star Sword Sect are able to participate in the outer court martial competition.” Li Fei finished in a single breath.
Duan Ling Tian’s brows knit.
He’d never imagined that killing Shao Ying would cause such a chain reaction.
“Is there any need to go to such lengths?” Duan Ling Tian shook his head and smiled, he never imagined that he had such great face as to be able to make the peak masters of the six peaks of Seven Star Sword Sect to specially hold a meeting for him.
Of course, Duan Ling Tian was able to guess the intentions of the peak masters of the six great sword peaks in doing this.
It was none other than thinking if they didn’t change the rules, the outer court martial competition this time would be without suspense, as he, Duan Ling Tian, would surely become the first place in the outer court martial competition.
“They’re precisely afraid of you obtaining the first place, so they intentionally tried to obstruct you.” Li Fei grunted in a low voice, and had a displeased expression.
“Alright, this is nothing to be unhappy about… They did this because they don’t hope for the first place of the outer court martial competition to be known already before the martial competition has even begun. If it’s really like this, then the confidence of the other outer court disciples would surely take a blow.” Duan Ling Tian laughed, he was completely able to understand the intentions of the peak masters of the six great sword peaks.
“Still laughing? If it’s really like this, then at that time, there will surely be some seventh level Origin Core Stage outer court disciples that would be participating. During the outer court martial competition, you can’t use any external sources of strength besides spirit weapons. In other words, your inscriptions can’t be used.” LI Fei looked at Duan Ling Tian seeming to be slightly unhappy. “In that way, you’ll be unable to obtain first place.”
Li Fei was extremely unhappy in her heart towards the first place that originally ought to be Duan Ling Tian’s being deprived from him like this.
In her heart, the man of her, Li Fei, was always the most outstanding.
“Can’t use inscriptions?” Duan Ling Tian was slightly surprised, but with a quick thought, he came to an understanding.
Inscriptions were after all not similar to spirit weapons, as to a certain extent, the existence of inscriptions did indeed affect the fairness of the outer court martial competition.
“What? Little Fei, you’re so not confident of your man?” Duan Ling Tian’s mischievously placed his hand on the little girl’s delicate body that didn’t have a bit of excess flesh, and felt her up.
The little girl’s delicate body trembled, and her cheeks blushed rosy.
Duan Ling Tian’s breathing became hurried when he saw this, and once again turned over on top of her, and galloped to his heart’s content.
Duan Ling Tian only left after being intimate with her for an entire day.
“A house of pleasures, a tomb of heroes… Our forefathers didn’t lie.” Duan Ling Tian sighed emotionally in his heart when he left the Alkaid Peak, as although he’d been intimate with Li Fei for the entire day, but as far as he was concerned, it only seemed like an instant.
Duan Ling Tian shook his head and his mind cleared slightly, then he stepped onto the chain bridge to return to the main peak, Dubhe Peak.
The sun had already set in the west when Duan Ling Tian arrived at the stone platform which the chain bridge that led to Megrez Peak was located, and he noticed that many Megrez Peak disciples were stepping onto the chain bridge to head towards Megrez Peak.
“Hmph!” A cold snort sounded out nearby, Duan Ling Tian turned over to gaze over, and only now did he notice the Megrez Peak outer court elder, Zhao Lin, on the stone platform, staring at him with a gloomy expression.
Meanwhile, Duan Ling Tian also noticed Huang Ji standing nearby, and was winking at him.
Duan Ling Tian snickered in his heart.
Looks like Huang Ji really did take Zhao Lin to go around the Seven Star Sword Sect the entire day.
Seeing Zhao Lin exasperated appearance, Duan Ling Tian suddenly felt that spending that 10,000 gold was worth it.
“Elder Zhao Lin, it’s been a long time.” Duan Ling Tian stood in the stream of people that flowed ceaselessly, and looked at Zhao Lin as he greeted him with a light smile, as if he was greeting an old friend.
Zhao Lin paid no attention to Duan Ling Tian, and his expression was as unsightly as unsightly could be.
Perhaps, as far as he was concerned, the only reason he came back empty-handed today was because of Duan Ling Tian being too cunning, causing him to have no tracks to find.
He didn’t suspect Huang Ji who led the way.
Duan Ling Tian shrugged when he saw Zhao Lin having no attention of responding to him, and the corners of his mouth curled into a provoking smile as he deeply glanced at Zhao Lin before stepping onto the chain bridge and heading towards Megrez Peak.
There were too many people here currently, so he wasn’t worried that Zhao Lin would make a move against him.
In next to no time, Duan Ling Tian noticed Zhao Lin following him from behind.
He didn’t pay any attention.
Relying on his counter tracking methods, it would be extremely easy if he wanted to escape Zhao Lin’s pursuit.
After Duan Ling Tian returned to Megrez Peak, he wound a few circles around the Trade Hall that streams of people surged through, and successfully threw off Zhao Lin, then swaggered off back to the peak of Megrez Peak and returned to the stalactite cave.
Within the Trade Hall.
After noticing Duan Ling Tian’s tracks vanishing and searching for another half an hour without gain, Zhao Lin’s face was incomparably gloomy. “Duan Ling Tian, I’ll find a chance sooner or later… You just wait!”
His wait, was a wait of an entire three months.
On the chain bridge, a young man with a gloomy expression walked swiftly into the Alioth Peak platform.
This young man had an extremely special appearance, his features were distorted and hideous, and his pair of triangular eyes seemed to be always flickering with a gloomy sheen.
He stood there and his entire person seemed like a venomous snake that was waiting for a chance to swallow one up.
However, when the young man passed them, the groups of Alioth Peak disciples all respectfully greeted him. “Senior Brother Shi Hao.”
“Senior Brother Shi Hao!”
“Senior Brother Shi Hao!”
At the same time that these Alioth Peak disciples greeted him, expressions of respect and fear appeared on their faces.
They were clear in their hearts that this young man with an appearance that was intolerable to the eye, was an existence with an extremely formidable strength.
He was also a famous person of their Alioth Peak, and even was the disciple that was publically acknowledged by most disciples as the number one disciple in the outer court of the Seven Star Sword Sect.
“Eh, Senior Brother Shi Hao’s expression seems to be slightly unsightly.”
“Isn’t his expression always like this? I don’t see any difference.”
“Take a careful look again… Also, looks at his eyes, don’t they have rage mixed within? I wonder who offended him.”
“It really is so.”
Two Alioth Peak disciples stood at the side and looked at Shi Hao walk to Alioth Peak from afar as they whispered in discussion.
“Shi Hao!” Outside the Alioth Peak Trade Hall, a figure walked like the wind, and arrived near the chain bridge in the blink of an eye to stand before Shi Hao.
This was a robust middle aged man with a thick build, and his eyes were radiating vigor.
“Elder Zhong Bing.” Shi Hao lowered his arrogant head before this robust middle aged man.
“Shi Hao, there’s something I want to tell you… The outer court martial competition three months from now doesn’t impose the restriction of only allowing outer court disciples who have entered the Seven Star Sword Sect for less than three years to participate. So long as one is an outer court disciple, one can participate. You can also participate!” Zhong Bing, the outer court elder of Alioth peak smiled as he said to Shi Hao. “This time, my Alioth Peak will be relying on you.”
As far as he was concerned, with Shi Hao’s strength, taking the first place in the outer court martial competition three months from now was something that was without any suspense if nothing unexpected happened.
“What’s going on?” Shi Hao was slightly absent-minded earlier, but now when he heard Zhong Bing, his spirit was roused. “The rules of the outer court martial competition always had restrictions… Why were changes made suddenly this time?”
It was difficult for him to understand.
“This has to be told starting from an outer court disciple of Megrez Peak.” When Zhong Bing spoke up to here, a trace of envy flashed within his eyes. “Three months ago, a black horse appeared within the batch of new outer court disciples that our Seven Star Sword Sect recruited… That’s a young man around the age of 20, and he later went to Megrez Peak.
“He hadn’t come to Megrez Peak for long when he killed two fourth level Origin Core Stage outer court disciples in the Megrez Peak’s life and death arena… The two outer court disciples were both Megrez Peak disciples! They both joint forces to deal with that young man, but the result was they were killed by the young man in a single move.
“The natural talent of this young man is simply shocking! The luck of the Megrez Peak is really good, actually able to obtain such a monstrous outer court disciple…
“Eh, Shi Hao, what’s wrong? Why’s your expression so unsightly?” Zhong Bing talked for a long time, and in the end he noticed Shi Hao’s face sank suddenly. Shi Hao’s originally distorted and hideous features now seemed to have completely entangled together.
It looked extremely terrifying.
“Elder Zhong Bing, you said that young man entered the Seven Star Sword Sect three months ago?” Finally, Shi Hao spoke with a voice that had a sense of coldness mixed within.
