Chapter 391: Saber Young Master Making A Move
Translator: KurazyTolanzuraytor Editor: Jay
“No?” Duan Ling Tian’s reply caused the Demonic Lotusblade Sect’s Leader to be unable to help himself from being stunned, and he frowned. “What do you mean?”
“My target is first place in the Martial Competition!” Duan Ling Tian slowly spoke, with a manner as if he wouldn’t stop until he shocked everyone…
Duan Ling Tian had only just finished speaking when the entire scene went deathly silent.
In the next moment, like a stone that caused a thousand ripples…
“Duan Ling Tian is mad, he’s truly mad!”
“A person like him wants to compete for the first? Does he really take the Saber Young Master to be a dead man?”
“He’s too arrogant! In my entire lifetime, it’s still the first time that I’ve seen such an arrogant person.”
“Moreover, it isn’t just an ordinary level of arrogance, he’s simply boundlessly arrogant!’
For a time, the entire Martial Competition Courtyard was in a complete uproar because of Duan Ling Tian’s words.
Presently, it wasn’t just the disciples of the four sects, even the Elders couldn’t help but shake their heads as they felt that Duan Ling Tian was too young and easily arrogant, and that he didn’t know his own limitations.
Although in their opinion, Duan Ling Tian’s ability to defeat a stronger opponent could be considered bizarre.
But Duan Ling Tian being able to defeat a fifth level Nascent Soul Stage martial artist had already caused them to be incomparably shocked…
Now, Duan Ling Tian actually still wanted to challenge a sixth level Nascent Soul Stage martial artist?
Duan Ling Tian was too arrogant!
“Duan Ling Tian, don’t act rashly!”
“Duan Ling Tian, third place in the Martial Competition is already not bad, Three years later, in the next Martial Competition, you’ll surely be able to obtain the glory of being the first.”
“Duan Ling Tian, wait another three years and obtaining the first in the Martial Competition would be extremely easy for you, without a shred of suspense!”
Three voice transmission entered into Duan Ling Tian’s ears at almost the exact same instant.
Duan Ling Tian was able to discern that these three voice transmission were precisely sent into his ears by Linghu Jin Hong and the other two Peak Masters.
Obviously, Linghu Jin Hong’s group of three didn’t think that he was able to obtain first place in the Martial Competition today!
“Sect Leader, Peak Master Zheng Fan, and Peak Master Ke Zhen… Don’t worry, I’m confident.” Duan Ling Tian’s voice transmission entered into the ears of Linghu Jin Hong’s group of three, causing them to be stunned on the spot.
At this moment, they could clearly feel the strong confidence contained within Duan Ling Tian’s words…
But where did Duan Ling Tian get that confidence from?
The three of them glanced at each other.
In the end, they came to a common agreement: they would choose to believe Duan Ling Tian.
Duan Ling Tian’s abrupt rise in the Seven Star Sword Sect was a legend, a miracle…
They subconsciously hoped that Duan Ling Tian would be able to create another miracle this time!
The person with similar thoughts as them was Zheng Song.
“Junior Brother Duan Ling Tian isn’t the type of person who boasts… Since he said he wants to compete for first place, then I presume he’s confident.” Zheng Song said to himself.
“The extra prize for the first in the Martial Competition is the Profound Nascent Pill… If it’s really obtained by Junior Brother Duan Ling Tian, then the Demonic Lotusblade Sect’s Leader would probably be angered to the point he spits blood right?” When he thought up to here, Zheng Song couldn’t refrain from snickering.
“Duan Ling Tian wants to compete for the first in the Martial Competition?” Huang Ji coldly glanced at Duan Ling Tian and a wisp of disdain appeared on the corners of his mouth. “Let me see you lose face!”
“Haha…” The Demonic Lotusblade Sect’s Leader was shocked by Duan Ling Tian’s words in the beginning, and now that he recovered from his shock, he couldn’t refrain from bursting into laughter. “Duan Ling Tian, looks like you’re extremely confident of your strength… However, confidence is a good thing, but if you’re overconfident, then it’s conceit!”
“Don’t worry Sect Leader Long, although I, Duan Ling Tian, am a nobody, I’m still able to differentiate between confidence and conceit.” Duan Ling Tian lightly smiled with a carefree expression.
He didn’t pay attention to the questioning of the members of the various sects at all.
He knew that even if he were to talk his head off now, it would be of no use. Only facts would be able to make these people shut up and make them stop questioning him.
“I’m just afraid that those involved are unable to see as clearly as an outsider.” The Demonic Lotusblade Sect’s Leader glanced deeply at Duan Ling Tian, then asked. “Who do you intend to challenge?”
Duan Ling Tian’s gaze first descended onto the Snow Moon Sect’s Liu Yue, then looked at the Demonic Lotusblade Sect’s Saber Young Master, Long Yun, and he said indifferently. “I’ll challenge whoever amongst them is strongest… I have no interest in challenging the other person.” After he finished speaking, Duan Ling Tian closed his eyes and rested his mind.
His intention was extremely clear.
Ask Liu Yu and Long Yun to battle first, and whoever wins is who he would challenge…
The person that lost didn’t have the qualifications for him to issue a challenge to.
Duan Ling Tian had only just finished speaking when someone couldn’t refrain from scolding.
“Sect Leader Linghu, looks like this disciple of your Seven Star Sword Sect is extremely confident of his strength.” The Demonic Lotusblade Sect’s Leader looked at Linghu Jin Hong and spoke with a tone that contained slight ridicule mixed within. “I wonder, Sect Leader Linghu, what do you think of the actions of this disciple of your Seven Star Sword Sect? Do you think he really has the strength, or is he intentionally misleading everyone?”
Linghu Jin Hong said indifferently, “I believe him.”
I believe him.
A short sentence that was sufficient to display the unconditional trust Linghu Jin Hong had towards Duan Ling Tian.
The Demonic Lotusblade Sect’s Leader’s face froze when he heard this.
He’s never expected that Linghu Jin Hong would actually be so trusting of a little kid.
“Duan Ling Tian, I admit your natural talent is extremely strong… But don’t even think about defeating me with a cultivation at the fourth level of the Nascent Soul Stage.” The Snow Moon Sect’s Liu Yu said indifferently, and at the same time, she moved as if transforming into a gust of wind and flashed out of the pergola to stand on the vast even ground.
“Saber Young Master.” Liu Yue’s gaze descended onto Long Yun. “The two of us will fight first, and the person who wins can properly teach a lesson to Duan Ling Tian, who has an exaggerated opinion of his ability. How about it?”
At this moment, Liu Yue’s expression had become serious.
She could look down on Duan Ling Tian, as although Duan Ling Tian’s natural talent was strong, he still hadn’t fully matured after all, so she wasn’t afraid…
However, the Saber Young Master, Long Yun, was a formidable enemy of hers.
“No one has the right to tell me what to do.” The Saber Young Master spoke indifferently and was incomparably overbearing.
When Liu Yue’s expression went grim, Saber Young Master’s figure had flashed out to stand in confrontation with Liu Yue.
Saber Young Master’s hands were crossed before him all the time as he embraced the sheathed spirit saber.
Saber Young Master glanced at Liu Yue with a calm expression, then said indifferently, “You’re not a match for me. I’ll surely defeat you within three breath of time! Otherwise, I’ll admit defeat.”
Three breaths of time?
As soon as Saber Young Master finished speaking, it was like a stone that had caused a thousand ripples, it had successfully attracted the gazes of everyone but Duan Ling Tian…
Only Duan Ling Tian still sat within the pergola with his eyes closed as he rested his mind, as if he didn’t have the slightest interest towards the battle that was about to begin.
“You…” Liu Yue’s face went grim when she heard Saber Young Master, then she shouted lightly. “Saber Young Master, the both of us are at the sixth level of the Nascent Soul Stage, could it be that you aren’t afraid such arrogant words will come back to bite you? At that time, if you’re unable to do it, then you’ll really become a laughing stock!”
“This is something you don’t have to worry about. Since I dared say this, then I naturally have the confidence.” Saber Young Master’s tone was flat, and from the beginning until the end, he’d never took Liu Yue seriously.
Needless to say, the current Saber Young Master was extremely arrogant.
However, in the eyes of the crowd of people in the Martial Competition Courtyard, the arrogance of Saber Young Master was different from Duan Ling Tian’s arrogance…
The arrogance of Saber Young Master was an arrogance of confidence, and it caused others to be completely convinced.
The arrogance of Duan Ling Tian was arrogance from a young age, and was not worthy of mentioning.
“You and Duan Ling Tian are similarly arrogant!” Liu Yue emitted a tender shout, and she flew out as if transformed into a bolt of lightning that flashed towards Saber Young Master.
In the sky, the energy of heaven and earth roiled and condensed into 800 ancient mammoth’s silhouettes that dashed out in tow…
At the same time that she dashed out, a crescent shaped narrow saber appeared out of thin air in Liu Yue’s hand, and Origin Energy suffused and jumped about on it.
Instantly, another 300 ancient mammoth silhouettes appeared beside the previous 800 ancient mammoth silhouettes in the sky…
“Grade six spirit saber!” Many people exclaimed in surprise.
Liu Yue, the number one disciple in the Snow Moon Sect’s younger generation, possessed an offense comparable to the strength of 1,100 ancient mammoths when relying on a grade six spirit saber.
Swoosh! Swoosh! Swoosh! Swoosh! Swoosh!
As she dashed out, the crescent shaped narrow saber in Liu Yue’s hands flashed out, transforming into saber images that covered the sky as it formed a saber net that flickered with frightful cold lights and narrowed down towards Saber Young Master, following him like a shadow.
At this moment, this Saber Net seemed to have transformed into a heaven encompassing net that wanted to trap the Saber Young Master within it.
“Thousand Image Saber Technique!” Many people recognized the martial skill Liu Yue executed and they exclaimed in surprise.
The Thousand Image Saber Technique was a high grade Profound Rank martial skill of great reputation in the Snow Moon Sect.
It stressed upon combining the Origin Energy with the spirit saber to transform into saber images that covered the sky and formed a saber net that was like a heaven encompassing net, causing the opponent to have nowhere to flee and be directly annihilated.
“You only have this little ability?” Right at the instant when Liu Yue was dashing out and executed the Thousand Image Saber Technique, Long Yun’s voice sounded out, and within the calmness of his voice was slight disdain.
As if he didn’t take the skill Liu Yue executed seriously at all.
You only have this little ability?
“This little ability is sufficient to kill you!” Liu Yue was furious out of embarrassment and she shouted explosively. She attacked with her rage, sending the heaven encompassing net that the saber images had transformed into to sweep towards Saber Young Master.
“Is that so?” Saber Young Master’s calm voice appeared again, and at the same time, he stood on the spot, not moving like a mountain.
The sheathed saber that Saber Young Master embraced before him had instantly unsheathed, and Origin Energy rages and skyrocketed atop it.
A saber light flashed out, pulling out a string of long and narrow afterimages as it moved to intercept Liu Yue’s saber net that was approaching menacingly.
Instantly, 1,100 ancient mammoth silhouettes appeared out of thin air above Saber Young Master…
“The spirit saber in Saber Young Master’s hands is a grade six spirit saber as well!” Many spectators couldn’t refrain from exclaiming in surprise.
Subsequently, everyone present noticed that when the grade six spirit saber in Saber Young Master’s hands went to intercept the saber net that Liu Yue executed, a slightly strange aura had suddenly appeared on the saber…
Right at this instant.
The energy of heaven and earth roiled once again, and at the side of the 1,100 ancient mammoth silhouettes above Saber Young Master…
