Chapter 454: Heroism and Sadness
Translator: KurazyTolanzuraytor Editor: Jay
“Peak Master Zheng Fan!” A smile appeared on Duan Ling Tian’s face when he saw the middle aged man.
Subsequently, when his gaze shot at other places, it became icy cold and again.
Numerous Seven Star Sword Sect disciples had died at the hands of the disciples and elders of the Azure Forest Tri-Sect, and in a short moment, blood had already flown into a river atop Dubhe Peak.
“Kill!” A Seven Star Sword Sect outer court disciples that seemed to be around the age of 20 was directly killed as he roared.
Duan Ling Tian’s heart shook when he saw this scene.
Such a young life had come to its end just like this…
At this moment, Duan Ling Tian felt that life was so fragile.
If it was in the earth of his past, this Seven Star Sword Sect outer court disciple might only be a carefree university student, and would live peacefully every day.
But now, he hadn’t even had the chance to enjoy life when he’d already lost it.
“AH!!” Duan Ling Tian was enraged, his eyes were tainted completely scarlet red, and every time the Violet Myrtle Flexible Sword in his hand swung out, it would take away the life of an Azure Forest Tri-Sect disciple.
He didn’t know how many Azure Forest Tri-Sect disciples had died at his hand, and was unable to count how many Seven Star Sword Sect disciples had fallen the ground.
He only knew to…
KILL, KILL, KILL!
Every time he faced danger, the two peak masters, Zheng Fan and Ke Dong, would lend a hand and save him from peril.
Otherwise, perhaps he would have died at the hands of the group of Azure Forest Tri-Sect elders since long ago.
The Origin Energy in his body was ceaselessly consumed, yet Duan Ling Tian seemed as if he didn’t feel it at all, and the Violet Myrtle Flexible Sword in his hand flashed, seeming as if it wanted to completely use the last strand of strength within his body.
On the other side, Zheng Song, Mo Yu, Zuo Qing, and the others that had a good relationship with Duan Ling Tian were all fighting with all their might, and their eyes had gone red from the slaughter.
For the sake of the sect, they were willing to bleed to the last drop!
Unknowingly, Duan Ling Tian felt exhausted, and he bent over, supporting himself by propping his hands on his legs as he breathed heavily.
His gaze shot high above into the sky.
There, the battle of the experts was being carried out.
The Sect Leader, Linghu Jin Hong, and Elder Xuan fought two against three, battling three sixth level Void Initiation Stage experts, and for a time, a victor was difficult to decide on.
The two of them relied on their Sword Concepts that suppressed their opponents, and they seemed to be able to sustain it for some time.
On the other side, Elder Ming moved about with the wind, and his fifth level Wind Concept raged as he fought the Demonic Lotusblade Sect’s Leader.
The strength, spirit weapon, and Concept of the two were comparably, and for a time, their battle had was at a draw.
On the other side, the Seven Star Sword Sect’s Sect Guardian Revered Elder, the demon beast Elder Peng, fought against the last sixth level Void Initiation Stage expert from the three great sects and the Origin Convergence Sect’s Sect Guarding Demon Beast, the Jadefeather Vulture.
Originally, with Elder Peng’s strength, he wasn’t inferior to that sixth level Void Initiations Stage expert, but because of the interference of the Jadefeather Vulture, it caused Elder Peng to gradually become disadvantaged.
The other people and beasts both fought like a raging fire.
“I’m utterly unable to interfere in this type of a battle.” A wisp of a bitter smile appeared on the corners of Duan Ling Tian’s mouth when he saw the fierce battle before him.
Any one of these experts were able to crush him to death with a flip of their palms!
Existences at the Void Initiation Stage are too terrifying.
At this moment, Duan Ling Tian felt himself to be so weak and inferior.
If he was a Void Interpretation Stage expert….
No, even if he was only an expert at the seventh level of the Void Initiation Stage or above, it would be sufficient to change the course of events and allow the Seven Star Sword Sect to be spared from this calamity.
In the battle amongst experts, the Seven Star Sword Sect gradually fell into a disadvantage.
In terms of strength and numbers, the experts of the Azure Forest Tri-Sect firmly suppressed the Seven Star Sword Sect.
An outcome like this wasn’t surprising.
“Kill!” Duan Ling Tian rested sufficiently under the protection of Peak Master Zheng Fan and Peak Master Ke Zhen, then he continued to carry out a slaughter.
Gradually, Duan Ling Tian killed to the point he was slightly numbed.
At an unknown time, a clear voice transmission entered into his ears, it belonged to the Sect Leader, Linghu Jin Hong. “Duan Ling Tian, after three breaths of time, Elder Peng will take you away, get ready!”
Duan Ling Tian was stunned first, then he guessed Linghu Jin Hong’s intentions.
Linghu Jin Hong wanted to send him off.
But would he be able to leave?
Perhaps he’d guessed Duan Ling Tian’s current thoughts, and Linghu Jin Hong added in a hurry. “So long as you survive, our Seven Star Sword Sect will have hope… I believe that you’ll surely be able to take revenge for us, and be able to make the Seven Star Sword Sect stand at the peak of the Azure Forest Imperial Kingdom once again!” Linghu Jin Hong’s voice transmission that contained both heroism and sadness was filled with confidence to Duan Ling Tian.
“Sect Leader!” Duan Ling Tian’s heart shook.
Three breaths of time passed in the blink of an eye.
Right at the instant.
A terrifying sword howl tore apart the sky, and it carried along an unparalleled might as it swept through the world.
It was the strongest in the Seven Star Sword Sect, Elder Ming, who had gone into a rampage, and he went against three sixth level Void Initiation Stage experts by himself… Causing Linghu Jing Hong to be free.
Linghu Jin Hong tore through the sky, seeming to transform into a sharp sword as his figure flashed, and he directly flashed towards the Grand Roc.
The Grand Roc was in combat with a man and a beast, and there were some injuries on his body.
“Elder Peng, I’ll leave it to you!” The grade five spirit sword in Linghu Jin Hong’s hand howled as he helped the Grand Roc to suppress the Grand Roc’s opponent, and the sixth level Void Initiation expert was blasted away by Linghu Jin Hong; the Jadefeather Vulture was in an extremely sorry state as well.
In terms of strength, Linghu Jin Hong was far inferior to the Grand Roc.
But in terms of attack, he far surpassed the Grand Roc.
After all, he’d already comprehended the sixth level of the Sword Concept…
Whereas even though the Grand Roc was a sixth level Void Initiation Stage demon beast, he’d only comprehended fifth level Wind Concept.
Sword Concept only affected offense but didn’t affect speed.
Wind Concept instead affected both offense and speed!
The Grand Roc nodded, his eyes emitted a wisp of a dreary expression, and then his eyes that flickered with a bright light flashed towards Duan Ling Tian’s location.
“Shriek!” Right at this moment, the Jadefeather Vulture seemed to have realized the Grand Roc wanted to leave, and it let out a sharp cry before transforming into a green colored flowing light that shot towards the Grand Roc.
Killing intent shot out from the depths of the Grand Roc’s eyes.
Without the suppression of that sixth level Void Initiation Stage expert, the Grand Roc directly moved to greet the Jadefeather Vulture.
In the blink of an eye, the Grand Roc stood towering in the air, whereas the Jadefeather Vulture’s neck was twisted by the Grand Roc before crashing onto the life and death arena on Dubhe Peak and giving rise to a cloud of dust and dirt.
The Jadefeather Vulture had become the first Void Initiation Stage expert to be killed.
“Elder Qing!” The Origin Convergence Sect’s Leader, Lu Yuan, saw this scene, and his face was gloomy as he exclaimed in sorrow.
The status of the Jadefeather Vulture in the Origin Convergence Sect was similar to the status of the Grand Roc in the Seven Star Sword Sect…
Even he, the Sect Leader, would have to respectfully address the Jadefeather Vulture as Elder Qing when they met.
In the next moment, Lu Yuan recovered from his shock, and he saw the Grand Roc of the Seven Star Sword Sect actually abandoned Linghu Jin Hong and plunged downwards.
His gaze followed to move downwards.
In next to no time, a familiar figure appeared within his field of vision.
“Duan Ling Tian!” Instantly, Lu Yuan’s face went gloomy as he finally knew what the Grand Roc intended, and he also knew why the Seven Star Sword Sect’s Elder Xuan would suddenly go on a rampage and desperately suppress the three sixth level Void Initiation Stage experts that included him…
So it turned out that all of this was planned!
“Stop that Grand Roc! It wants to take Duan Ling Tian to safety!” Lu Yuan abruptly shouted out explosively, his voice traversed out to spread throughout the entire peak of Dubhe Peak.
Instantly, all the experts of the three great sects wanted to leave their opponents and flash to Duan Ling Tian’s location to stop the Grand Roc.
At this moment, their hearts burned with anxiety.
It was fine if any other Seven Star Sword Sect disciple were to flee, and they wouldn’t care…
But Duan Ling Tian, this monstrous existence that had risen in the Azure Forest Imperial Kingdom like a comet was someone that they wouldn’t permit to flee no matter what.
They could imagine that with Duan Ling Tian’s natural talent, once he grew in the future, sweeping through their Azure Forest Tri-Sect would be nothing difficult.
“Don’t think of leaving!” All the Seven Star Sword Sect experts were notified by Linghu Jin Hong via voice transmission earlier, and they all went completely berserk, exploding out with all the strength in their bodies to stop the experts of the three great sect.
A Seven Star Sword Sect elder was directly killed because he tried to obstruct an expert from the three great sects.
Whereas now, the elders and disciples of the Azure Forest Tri-Sect all surged towards Duan Ling Tian with imposing auras that shot into the sky like a rainbow, as if they wanted to kill Duan Ling Tian before the Grand Roc took Duan Ling Tian away.
“Senior Brother Duan Ling Tian, I’ll assist you!” A hurried voice sounded out and it was the nearby Mo Yu who’d flashed over, and he killed an Azure Forest Tri-Sect disciple that wanted to attack Duan Ling Tian from behind.
Mo Yu stood by Duan Ling Tian’s eyes, and his eyes had gone red from the slaughter!
Relying on his extraordinary natural talent, Mo Yu had already broken through to the first level of the Nascent Soul Stage now, and his strength was outstanding.
“Stop them, open a path for Senior Brother Duan Ling Tian!”
The group of Seven Star Sword Sect disciples seemed as if they were on steroids, and they fought desperately against the disciples of the three great secs.
They shed all their hot blood just for the sake of helping Duan Ling Tian to pave a road to survival!
Today, anyone amongst them could die, but only Duan Ling Tian couldn’t.
Duan Ling Tian was their hope.
The hope of the Seven Star Sword Sect!
Whereas their actions came with extremely great consequences.
Numerous Seven Star Sword Sect disciples painted the ground red, their fresh blood flowing out to taint the shoes of Duan Ling Tian’s feet red.
“No! No!!” Duan Ling Tian’s eyes almost split apart as he watched the scene before him.
Most of these Seven Star Sword Sect disciples didn’t have any relationship with him, but today, for the sake of allowing him to leave, they’d instead fought desperately with their lives on the line to stop the members of the Azure Forest Tri-Sect.
“Duan Ling Tian, live well!” Meng Qiu, the personal disciple of the Merak Peak’s Master, Ke Zhen, charged into the crowd and killed a few Azure Forest Tri-Sect disciples before being killed by an elder of the Azure Forest Tri-Sect.
“Meng Qiu!” Duan Ling Tian’s face went gloomy and his eyes emitted boundless bloodthirst.
“Qiu, great work!” After Ke Zhen killed an Azure Forest Tri-Sect elder with a palm strike, he just happened to see this scene, and at the same time that tears flowed from his aged eyes, he had a gratified expression.
His disciple didn’t lose face for him, and the fostering he’d given for many years wasn’t in vain.
“Junior Brother Duan Ling Tian, don’t let down Junior Sister…” A delicate shout entered into Duan Ling Tian’s ears, causing his face to go ghastly pale. “Senior Sister Zuo Qing, don’t!!”
Zuo Qing’s beautiful figure was like the wind, and after she killed a few Azure Forest Tri-Sect disciples, a group of Azure Forest Tri-Sect disciples swarmed at her, causing her to be exposed before saber lights and sword images that covered the sky before perishing beneath them.
“No! No!!” Duan Ling Tian’s eyes were crimson red, and he was sad to the extreme. The Violet Myrtle Flexible Sword in his hand flashed out to carry away the life of an Azure Forest Tri-Sect disciple.
