Chapter 352: Nine-Nine Heavenly Tribulation
Translator: KurazyTolanzuraytor Editor: Jay
A wisp of bitterness appeared on the corners of Duan Ling Tian’s mouth when he heard Xiong Quan.
A seventh level Void Prying Stage expert had his Dantian crippled in the blink of an eye, and had lose all his Origin Energy to become a martial artist that was inferior to even a first level Void Prying Stage martial artist…
Could this be said to be fine?
Duan Ling Tian asked himself, if it was him, he would surely be unable to accept reality!
He knew clearly in his heart that Xiong Quan only said this to console him, as Xiong Quan didn’t want Duan Ling Tian to feel guilty.
But how could he not feel guilty?
“Xiong Quan, I owe you.” At the same time that Duan Ling Tian silently sighed in his heart, a bitter smile appeared on the corners of Duan Ling Tian’s mouth.
What he owed Xiong Quan was something he would probably only be able to return in his next lifetime.
He’d killed the grandson of this Void Initiation Stage expert before him and it was impossible that this old man would let him off.
Duan Ling Tian took a deep breath and stared coldly at the withered old man in a neither haughty nor humble manner.
“Scoundrel.” Meanwhile, LI Fei held Duan Ling Tian’s hand and stood shoulder to shoulder with him.
They would share everything together!
As far as she was concerned, being able to live and die together with Duan Ling Tian in this lifetime was a life that wasn’t lived in vain.
“Little Fei.” When Duan Ling Tian saw Li Fei like this, the cold indifference on his face vanished, and replacing it was extreme gentleness. He lightly stretched his hand out to stroke Li Fei’s beautiful face. “Do you regret knowing me?”
Li Fei shook her head. “In this lifetime, being able to know you is the greatest providence the heavens gave me… Even if I have to leave this world with you in the next moment, I still wouldn’t regret it. Because I’ll be able to stay by your side at all times. You will never be alone.”
Duan Ling Tian nodded heavily, then he took a deep breath and forced out a trace of a smile on his face.
In her eyes, a trace of firmness was gradually revealed.
No matter what, so long as there was still a sliver of a chance, he wouldn’t let anything happen to Little Fei!
“Hmph!” A cold snort sounded out, breaking this beautiful atmosphere.
“A truly touching scene… My poor grandson, he died because of this woman!” The withered old man’s voice was cold and indifferent, his expression extremely gloomy.
Suddenly, the withered old man moved to attack.
In the blink of an eye, he’d taken Li Fei from Duan Ling Tian’s side.
“Little Fei!” Duan Ling Tian’s face went grim when he saw this and the instant he reacted, his figure flashed out, wanting to save Li Fei.
The old man casually raised his leg and a leg image swept out. He only used the strength of over a hundred ancient mammoths to kick Duan Ling Tian flying.
Instantly, Duan Ling Tian felt his internal organs shake, and something sweet rushed up his throat.
In the next moment, his entire body flew out like an arrow leaving the bow before fiercely smashing onto the wall.
Duan Ling Tian spat out a mouthful of blood, and his internal organs quaked, causing him to be almost suffocated.
However, when he saw Li Fei was still in the hands of the old man, Duan Ling Tian abruptly shouted out explosively and flew out once again, transforming into a venomous serpent.
Sword Drawing Arts!
His sword flashed out like lightning as it flew straight for the old man.
The sword light that flashed by seemed to have transformed into the fangs of a venomous snake that bit at the old man.
“Futile effort!” The old man sneered, then casually raised his hand to blast Duan Ling Tian flying once again.
Duan Ling Tian spat out a mouthful of fresh blood again. He was barely able to stand up using his sword to support himself, and his body swayed, seeming as if he might fall at any moment.
“Scoundrel!” This scene caused Li Fei’s eyes to nearly split open and she exclaimed in sorrow.
Right at this moment, a slovenly figure flashed out from within the second floor of the Eternal Jade Restaurant, and his hand held the hand of a beautiful woman.
It was precisely the husband and wife pair of the Eternal Jade Restaurant.
Zhang Shou Yong and Wang Qiong.
They were originally busy in the kitchen, but when they noticed the commotion they’d hurried out at the first possible moment.
When they saw the scene before them, Zhang Shou Yong frowned, whereas Wang Qiong’s beautiful face went pale. “Little Sister Li Fei!”
“Kid, looks like you love this woman very deeply… You actually fight so desperately for her sake!” The withered old man only glanced at Zhang Shou Yong and Wang Qiong indifferently, then didn’t pay any attention to them. Perhaps he felt that the two of them were of no threat to him, and his gaze that contained traces of coldness once again descended onto Duan Ling Tian.
Duan Ling Tian looked at the withered old man then gnashed his teeth and said, “Old goat, I killed your grandson, it has nothing to do with her! You’re a Void Initiation Stage expert in any case, don’t you feel it’s a loss of face for giving a weak girl a hard time? Whatever it is, come at me!”
“Truly touching.” A wisp of a strange smile appeared on the old man’s face as he looked at Duan Ling Tian and said indifferently. “Kid, I know that it’s surely because of this woman that you killed my grandson… How about this? I’ll give you a chance. I’ll let you leave, but leave this woman behind for me to kill. How about it?”
“Hmph!” Duan Ling Tian snorted coldly and disregarded what the old man said.
Not to mention he didn’t believe that the old man would be so kind, even if the old man was speaking the truth, it would still be impossible for him to leave.
Li Fei was his woman and his life.
Asking him to leave him woman and use his woman’s life in exchange for his own, and live on alone?
He would rather die!
“Scoundrel, leave quickly!” However, Li Fei instead believed the old man, and she looked at Duan Ling Tian as she said anxiously. “Quickly leave! You have to take good care of Little Sister Ke Er in the future, and live on with Little Sister Ke Er…”
In Li Fei’s eyes, even if she exchanged her life for the life of her man, she would have no regrets.
A wisp of a sneer appeared on the corners of the old man’s mouth as he grunted. “Did you hear it? Your woman asked you to go… Kid, hurry up and leave, so as to avoid leaving your life here.”
Duan Ling Tian paid no attention to the old man. He looked at Li Fei and lightly shook his head. “Little Fei, you’re too foolish. I killed his grandson, how could he easily let me off? Even if he’d really be willing to let me off, but if the price was your life… Then I, Duan Ling Tian, would rather die!”
I, Duan Ling Tian, would rather die!
Duan Ling Tian’s voice was clear and contained his will to die, his heroic spirit shooting into the sky.
“Scoundrel.” Li Fei’s delicate figure trembled and tears flowed down her beautiful eyes like the rain. At this moment, although she was facing the danger of death, her heart was still filled with happiness…
At this moment, it seemed that only Duan Ling Tian remained in the world within her eyes.
This was her man…
Her, Li Fei’s, man!
Duan Ling Tian’s resoluteness caused the withered old man’s face to become unsightly.
He naturally wouldn’t be so kind as to let Duan Ling Tian leave.
He only wasted to smash the laughable love between this pair of little lovers, and let them know that their so-called love was so fragile…
Now it would seem that he’d failed.
This young man that had killed his grandson was actually willing to die for this woman.
The withered old man took a deep breath as his hand shook and Li Fei was directly tossed out by him, then he said with a cold and indifferent tone. “I’ll give you ten breaths of time, disappear before my eyes and I’ll spare your life… Otherwise, I’ll kill you with this kid!” As the old man finished speaking, his eyes emitted a cold and fierce expression.
He still wanted to see the scene of the person who killed his grandson being deserted by his loved ones…
Only in this way would he be able to vent the hatred in his heart.
When he saw this scene, Duan Ling Tian couldn’t help but sneer. “Old goat, doing the same thing twice… Don’t you feel it’s a waste of time? You probably wish for nothing more than to burn our bones and scatter our ashes in your heart, would you let any one of us leave? Laughable!”
Duan Ling Tian’s words caused the old man’s face to flicker between a livid and pale expression.
“Scoundrel.” Li Fei went to Duan Ling Tian’s side and supported the pale face Duan Ling Tian up, and the gaze she looked at Duan Ling Tian with was full of gentleness.
As long as she could stand together with this man, she would have no regrets even if she died in the next moment.
In the distance, Zhang Shou Yong was slightly moved when he saw this scene.
Subsequently, his gaze descended onto Wang Qiong…
Wang Qiong’s beautiful face was currently fully covered by tears, as if she’d transformed into a tearing beauty.
Duan Ling Tian and Li Fei’s actions of not abandoning each other had deeply affected her.
The love between the two of them had already surpassed life and death.
It was shocking!
“Kid, what you mean is I will go back on my word?” The killing intent in the old man’s eyes was awe-inspiring and his face sank.
For the sake of seeing Duan Ling Tian being abandoned by his loved ones, he secretly gritted his teeth and made a decision.
He raised his hand and the Origin Energy in his hand transformed into a needle that pierced into the tip of his finger.
A faint strand of fresh blood scattered in the air.
“I, Withered Old Man, establish this oath with my blood. So long as this woman is willing to abandon this kid and leave, and let this kid experience the bitterness of being abandoned by his loved ones… I, Withered Old Man, am willing to let this woman live. If I go against this oath, I, Withered Old Man, am willing to be blasted to death by the Nine-Nine Heavenly Tribulation!” As soon as the old man finished speaking, the fresh blood in the air rose up to the sky in a bizarre manner.
In the blink of an eye, a formidable and majestic aura was emitted from above the strand of fresh blood…
This aura suppressed everyone present, including the withered old man, and caused them to be unable to refrain from trembling.
That strand of fresh blood directly pierced through the roof of the Eternal Jade Restaurant and rushed into the sky.
After a short moment.
A thunderclap sounded out from the horizon, shocking the entire Ancient City of Everlast…
“A Void Prying Stage martial artist is overcoming the Six-Nine Heavenly Tribulation in the Ancient City of Everlast?” This was the first thought that arose within the minds of most people.
Only because this thunderclap was no ordinary thunderclap.
Subsequently, another thunderclap resounded out in the sky.
“No, it’s impossible for the gap between the six lightning strikes in the Six-Nine Heavenly Tribulation to be so short,” Some Void Stage experts that had experienced the Six-Nine Heavenly Tribulation said in astonishment.
Bang! Bang! Bang! Bang! Bang!
In next to no time, many more thunderclaps resounded out, and it only stopped after a total of nine resounded.
“This is… The Nine-Nine Heavenly Tribulation?”
For a time, the entire Ancient City of Everlast was in an uproar.
Nine-Nine Heavenly Tribulation!
Within the Eternal Jade Restaurant, Duan Ling Tian’s pupils constricted as he never expected that the old man would actually establish such a heavy oath…
“Looks like for the sake of seeing the scene of me being abandoned by my loved ones, this old man is really willing to let Li Fei go.” Duan Ling Tian’s heart trembled slightly as he guessed the reason the old man did this.
In next to no time, he looked at Li Fei who was beside him and his eyes revealed traces of tender affection, and within this tender affection was slight reluctance mixed within.
Through the memories of the Rebirth Martial Emperor, Duan Ling Tian knew of the Nine-Nine Heavenly Tribulation like the back of his hand.
The Nine-Nine Heavenly Tribulation was an Oath Tribulation that caused the people of Cloud Continent to tremble with fear on hearing of it.
In Cloud Continent, other oaths didn’t have a substantial binding force as it merely relied on one’s conscience, and the person who made the oath could go back on his word it at any moment.
But once one used one’s own blood and establish the oath with the Nine-Nine Heavenly Tribulation, then it possessed absolute binding force!
