Chapter 383: Invincible Legend
Translator: KurazyTolanzuraytor Editor: Jay
In the past, although Duan Ling Tian had noticed the combination of hatred and jealousy that Huang Ji and Meng Qiu had towards him, he didn’t care much.
As the common saying goes, one who doesn’t encounter envy is a mediocre person!
Possessing someone’s envy undoubtedly showed that he had some merits.
This was a good thing.
But, now, Huang Ji and Meng Qiu pushing him onto the chopping block while in the presence of outsiders had instead caused boundless rage to arise at the bottom of his heart…
“You… You two!!” Huang Ji and Meng Qiu singing the same tune caused Zheng Song’s expression to be extremely unsightly.
Never had Zheng Song expected that Huang Ji and Meng Qiu would actually make things difficult for Duan Ling Tian like this.
“Junior Brother Duan Ling Tian, you don’t have to care about them.” Zheng Dong looked at Duan Ling Tian and advised.
“Duan Ling Tian?” When the Mountain Split Sect disciple heart Huang Ji and Meng Qiu, he was already beaming, and now when he heard what Zheng Song said to Duan Ling Tian, his gaze of ridicule descended onto Duan Ling Tian. “This Seven Star Sword Sect disciple’s name is really not bad. Ling Tian, Ling Tian… Soaring above the heavens, domineering enough!”
“But unfortunately, you don’t deserve your name, and at most you’re only a pu**y… According to how I see it, you should just change your name. Hmm, you can be called ‘Kneeling Ling’ in the future, what do you think?” The wretched face of the Mountain Split Sect disciple revealed a ridiculing smile, and he looking at Duan Ling Tian with a mocking gaze since the beginning until now.
As if he was mocking an ant!
“Kneeling Ling? This name isn’t bad…” In next to no time, someone seconded.
“Hahahaha…” Many people roared in laughter, and the gazes they shot at Duan Ling Tian were filled with mocking and ridicule.
“Duan Ling Tian, you wouldn’t really be willing to allow him to change your name, right?” Huang Ji looked at Duan Ling Tian and ridiculed.
“Perhaps, Duan Ling Tian likes this name.” Meng Qiu started laughing, laughing brilliantly.
“You two… You two are the personal disciples of our Seven Star Sword Sect’s Peak Master and Sect Leader at any rate, but you actually help outsiders bully and humiliate the Junior Brother from our own sect? You two want to allow outsiders to see our Seven Star Sword Sect make a fool of ourselves?” Zheng Song looked at Huang Ji and Meng Qiu and was angry to the point his figure lightly trembled. He was completely infuriated.
“Allow outsiders to see us make a fool of ourselves?” Huang Ji glanced at Zheng Song indifferently. “Zheng Song, open your eyes and look clearly, who is making a fool of our Seven Star Sword Sect now? The Junior Brother of the Mountain Split Sect sincerely invited Duan Ling Tian for a spar, but this Duan Ling Tian actually doesn’t even have the courage to accept the battle, he’s truly thrown the face of our Seven Star Sword Sect! He has allowed outsiders to sneer at our Seven Star Sword Sect.”
“It’s only a spar, not accepting the challenge is going a little too far. What? Duan Ling Tian, you still want to maintain your invincible legend in the Seven Star Sword Sect?” Meng Qiu looked at Duan Ling Tian, and his eyes contained traces of mocking.
When Duan Ling Tian was at the Seven Star Sword Sect, he rarely suffered a loss before anyone.
Especially the few times he ascended the life and death arena, he always killed his opponent as swiftly as a clap of thunder, and his imposing manner was like a rainbow and his reputation spread throughout the Seven Star Sword Sect…
In the Seven Star Sword Sect, many Seven Star Sword Sect disciples that had nothing better to do gave Duan Ling Tian the nickname ‘Invincible Legend.’
In their eyes, Duan Ling Tian was an invincible legend.
“Invincible Legend? Him?” Meng Qiu’s voice wasn’t soft, allowing the Mountain Split Sect’s disciple to clearly hear it, and he couldn’t help but laugh as he looked at Duan Ling Tian, then finally held his stomach as he roared with laughter. “I can’t take it… I can’t take it anymore, my stomach hurts from laughing… It hurts so much.”
For a time, the nickname given to Duan Ling Tian by the Seven Star Sword Sect disciples was well known by everyone in the Martial Competition Courtyard.
“Looks like there really is no one left in the Seven Star Sword Sect… A little kid like this was able to be publically acknowledged as an invincible legend?”
“Seven Star Sword Sect has truly declined.”
“In another few tens of years, the first sect in the Azure Forest Imperial Kingdom might not be the Seven Star Sword Sect anymore, and would instead be our Origin Convergence Sect… Our Origin Convergence Sect has a figure that’s amongst the five great young masters, Sword Young Master!”
“Hmph! Our Demonic Lotusblade Sect’s Senior Brother Long Yun is also one of the five great young masters, and he will surely lead our Demonic Lotusblade Sect to replace to Seven Star Sword Sect in the future and become the number one sect in the Azure Forest Imperial Kingdom!”
In next to no time, the disciples from the Demonic Lotusblade Sect and the Origin Convergence Sect had started arguing. They only shut their mouths when they saw something flash before their eyes, noticing that there was another figure on the spacious even ground.
Presently, near the Mountain Split Sect disciple stood a young man.
This young man was precisely the youngest person amongst everyone present here.
The Seven Star Sword Sect inner court disciple, Duan Ling Tian!
“This Seven Star Sword Sect disciple is going to accept the challenge?”
“Hmph! He’s simply courting a beating. Although the strength of this Mountain Split Sect disciple is average, he’s a fourth level Nascent Soul Stage martial artist at any rate. How could he be something a little kid could deal with?”
For a time, the gazes of some people from every pergola descended onto Duan Ling Tian.
The gazes of these people mostly contained a mocking expression mixed within.
He didn’t think that Duan Ling Tian would be able to be a match for this Mountain Split Sect disciple.
After all, Duan Ling Tian’s age was truly too young, to the extent that it was shocking.
Within the pergola, Huang Ji and Meng Qiu glanced at each other, then beamed.
They seemed to have already seen the scene of Duan Ling Tian being defeated and humiliated…
Only Zheng Song glared at Huang Ji and Meng Qiu, then looked at Duan Ling Tian with a worried expression as he hurriedly sent a voice transmission. “Junior Brother Duan Ling Tian, if you’re unable to carry on, then admit defeat! After you admit defeat, if he doesn’t stop, then I’ll make a move.”
Zheng Song’s concern caused Duan Ling Tian’s heart to feel warm and he replied with a voice transmission. “Don’t worry, Senior Brother Zheng Song.”
At the same time, Duan Ling Tian glanced indifferently at the Mountain Split Sect disciple that stood in confrontation with him, and said with a terrifyingly calm voice, “Mountain Split Sect disciple, right? I, Duan Ling Tian, the inner court disciple of the Seven Star Sword Sect, seemed to have never refused your challenge from the beginning, right?”
“All that crap you said earlier came out rather smoothly from your mouth… Were you expressing your lowly sense of existence?” It was fine when Duan Ling Tian didn’t speak, but the moment he did, every word struck the heart.
It caused the Mountain Split Sect disciple to be angered to the point his face flushed red and he almost howled. “Kid, I’ll kill you!”
Instantly, 600 lifelike ancient mammoth silhouettes condensed into form above him, and were accumulating force as they waited to be deployed.
Fourth level Nascent Soul Stage!
“Kill me?” Duan Ling Tian’s eyes narrowed and he had a carefree expression. “If you want to kill me, then it would depend on if you have the ability.”
When the spectators saw Duan Ling Tian still daring to provoke the Mountain Split Sect disciple like that while facing him, they felt their scalps go numb.
“This Seven Star Sword Sect disciple is actually enraging the Mountain Split Sect disciple… Is he courting death?”
“It was impossible for him to be a match for the Mountain Split Sect disciple in the first place. Enraging the Mountain Split Sect disciple a step further now is truly not a wise move! Today, he’s probably going to suffer.”
The spectating disciples of the various sects seemed to have already seen the scene of Duan Ling Tian being completely devastated by the Mountain Split Sect disciple.
Right when the Mountain Split Sect disciple howled, as the Origin Energy on his body skyrocketed, and he was about to attack.
“Little fellows, all of you seem to be rather happily making noise.” A dignified and gentle voice accompanied by a wave of footsteps sounded out from outside the Martial Competition Courtyard.
Instantly, within the pergola that was occupied by the Demonic Lotusblade Sect, besides the Saber Young Master, Long Yun, remaining unfazed, the gazes of the other three disciples lit up as they stood up and bowed.
The Demonic Lotusblade Sect’s Sect Leader?
Duan Ling Tian glanced over.
Right at this moment, a robust figure walked into the Martial Competition Courtyard with large strides.
This was a man with a curly beard that wore a red robe, his tiger-like eyebrows emitted a dignified aura, and below his tiger-like brows, his eyes flickered within a sheen of wisdom that was completely different to his outwards appearance…
Duan Ling Tian was able to discern that this Demonic Lotusblade Sect’s Sect Master wasn’t simple!
This was a scheming person, and was absolutely not someone an ordinary boorish fellow could compare to.
“When we participated in the Martial Competition that year, wasn’t it the same? The seniors hadn’t arrived when we’d already sparred with each other.”
Another middle aged man walked in slowly.
This middle aged man was dressed like a scholar, and incomparably modesty and gentleness was contained between his brows.
“Sect Leader!” The four Snow Moon Sect disciples respectfully bowed to the middle aged scholar.
The identity of the middle aged scholar was extremely obvious.
The Sect Leader of the Snow Moon Sect!
“I remember that I participated in the Martial Competition together with Sect Leader Linghu that year… At that time, Sect Leader Linghu struck everyone with a single sword strike and was awe-inspiring, causing all the disciples of our four great sects to not be a match for him!”
Under Duan Ling Tian’s gaze, a middle aged man with an ordinary appearance to the point he couldn’t be found once tossed in a crowd of people, walked in shoulder to shoulder with Linghu Jin Hong.
“Sect Leader!” Including the Mountain Split Sect disciple that was in confrontation with Duan Ling Tian, the other three Mountain Split Sect disciples all respectfully bowed to the middle aged man.
This middle aged man was precisely the Sect Leader of the Mountain Split Sect!
“It’s all matters of the past.” Linghu Jin Hong lightly smiled, then he parted ways with the Sect Leader of the Mountain Split Sect and they each walked into an unused pergola.
“Sect Leader!” The Seven Star Sword Sect’s Huang Ji, Meng Qiu, and Zheng Song all respectfully bowed to Linghu Jin Hong.
“Exactly, I was there that year as well, and the elegant demeanor of Sect Leader Linghu was indeed breathtaking.” A dignified middle aged man with a strong body followed to enter after Linghu Jin Hong and the Mountain Split Sect’s Sect Leader.
“Sect Leader!” The four Origin Convergence Sect disciples respectfully bowed.
Subsequently, a thinly scattered group of 10 walked in with large strides.
It was precisely the elders of the five great sects.
Two elders had come from every sect and they sat beside their respective sect leaders.
“Haha… I’ve heard of Sect Leader’s elegant demeanor from that year as well! But unfortunately, I’m a few years older than Sect Leader Linghu, and I had no luck in encountering Sect Leader Linghu in the Martial Competition.” The Demonic Lotusblade Sect’s Sect Leader who sat within the pergola laughed heartily.
“Eh.” Suddenly, the Sect Leader of Snow Moon Sect’s surprised gaze descended onto Duan Ling Tian.
Presently, Duan Ling Tian stood at the center of the Martial Competition Courtyard, and his young appearance seemed to be especially dazzling.
 TL Note: The name used here is凌跪地(Ling Gui Di) which is a variation of the end of Duan Ling Tian’s name 凌天 (Ling Tian). So instead of his original name which meant soaring the heavens, it would instead become kneeling on the ground. Thus, I named it Kneeling Ling.
