Chapter 522: Slaughter
Translator: KurazyTolanzuraytor Editor: Jay
Coldness appeared on the corners of Duan Ling Tian’s mouth when he heard the words of the bandit’s Ninth Leader.
Breakthrough in three days at most?
In other words, this Ninth Leader of the bandits was still a first level Void Prying Stage martial artist now.
Duan Ling Tian’s Spiritual Force stretched out and detected the amount of bandits in the gorge at the first possible moment.
There were an entire 30 plus people, and the Ninth Leader was the strongest amongst them.
The Ninth Leader was the one and only Void Prying Stage martial artist amongst the 30 plus people.
After he finished detecting them, Duan Ling Tian’s figure moved to descend from the tree and completely exposed himself before the band of bandits.
Whereas when the band of bandits saw an unfamiliar person had suddenly appeared in the gorge they hid within, and it was even a young man, they were all dumbstruck.
“Kid, where did you come from?” A bandit shot his gaze at Duan Ling Tian then asked with a low voice.
“He’s probably some Young Master that came to play in Blackwind Ridge and has gotten lost.” Some bandits noticed the little gold mouse on Duan Ling Tian’s shoulder, they only thought it was a pet and couldn’t help but laugh.
“Old Wang, didn’t you like this type of handsome Young Master with white and smooth skin? This Young Master that has delivered himself to us ought to suit your taste, right?” One of the bandits looked at another rugged bandit and spoke with a smile.
Instantly, the band of bandits roared with laughter, and they didn’t realize entirely of the arrival and danger.
Even the Ninth Leader of the bandits didn’t take Duan Ling Tian seriously.
After all, as far as they were concerned, the violet clothed young man before them was only a young man that was no more than 25 years of age.
A young man like this posed no threat to them.
“He’s indeed not bad. He’s rather handsome, I just don’t know how he is when played…” The rugged bandit had a lustful expression as he walked towards Duan Ling Tian.
But he hadn’t finished speaking when he’d already stopped abruptly, because a material point force condensed from Origin Energy had torn through the sky and interrupted him.
The rugged bandit’s body crashed onto the ground.
A hideous bloody hole had appeared between his brows, and beautiful and dazzling fresh blood was still endlessly spraying out from it.
After a short moment, his head was completely wet from blood.
“First… First level Void Prying Stage!” A bandit was the first to recover from his shock, and he just happened to see the 2,000 ancient mammoth silhouettes in the sky above Duan Ling Tian…
The 2,000 lifelike ancient mammoth silhouettes gradually condensed into form, and they brought an extremely great pressure to everyone!
Many bandits had ghastly pale expressions, and their legs shivered.
A Void Prying Stage expert wasn’t someone they could go against.
Presently, only the bandit’s Ninth Leader and the three bandits standing behind him were comparatively composed amongst the bandits present.
These three bandits were all existences at the Half-step Void Stage.
“Having a cultivation that has stepped into the Void Prying Stage at a young age… I wonder which one of the five great young masters you are?” The Ninth Leader’s face sank as he questioned with a shout.
“Five great young masters?” Duan Ling Tian’s brows raised and he shrugged. “I’m none of them.”
“You’re not a figure amongst the five great young masters?” The Ninth Leader sneered when he heard this. “No matter if you are one or not, since you killed my brother today, you’re dead!”
As soon as he finished speaking, the Ninth Leader flashed out.
The Ninth Leader’s body moved like the wind as a saber appeared in his hand.
Origin Energy suffused onto it before raging and rising explosively…
In the sky, along with the 2,000 ancient mammoth silhouettes that dashed out with him, another 560 ancient mammoth silhouettes condensed into form.
This was the amplification of the spirit saber.
The Ninth Leader’s saber was a grade seven spirit saber!
Along with the Ninth Leader and seeming to have transformed into a fierce beast that had opened its bloody mouth as it pounced towards Duan Ling Tian, the spirit saber in his hand had an extra strand of vast aura.
This strand of aura was extremely faint, and if one didn’t carefully sense it, one would be unable to notice it.
Instantly, another 200 ancient mammoth silhouettes appeared beside the 2,560 ancient mammoth silhouettes.
Elementary Saber Force!
“Die!” The Ninth Leader shouted out explosively as he exerted his full strength, and his saber descended down towards Duan Ling Tian’s head while carrying along the might to split a mountain.
He seemed as if he wanted to split Duan Ling Tian into two!
Terrifying Origin Energy leaped about on the saber, and as it crashed downwards, Saber Force suffused within it.
“Kill him!” The other three Half-step Void Stage bandits followed behind the Ninth Leader to charge towards Duan Ling Tian.
In the sky above them was 1,500 ancient silhouettes respectively.
Subsequently, they withdrew their respective spirit sabers.
Om! Om! Om!
Another three sabers descended down, and they seemed to have transformed into the bloody mouths of fierce beasts that bit at Duan Ling Tian.
“Futile effort!” The corners of Duan Ling Tian’s mouth curled into a wisp of disdain when facing the Ninth Leader’s saber slash that contained the strength of 2,760 ancient mammoths, and he shouted out coldly.
Subsequently, with a raise of his hand, Duan Ling Tian’s Origin Energy once again condensed into point force that tore through the sky.
The Origin Energy point force flashed out to intercept Ninth Leader’s saber that seemed to be able to split a mountain.
Following around the Origin Energy point force was strand of azure colored energy and violet colored energy that twined around each other, seemed to be like an azure snake and a violet snake that leaped about…
Instantly, another 1,000 ancient mammoth silhouettes appeared beside the existing 2,000 ancient mammoth silhouettes above Duan Ling Tian.
Presently, Duan Ling Tian had executed the Tempest Point at the Mastery Stage that contained Half-step Advanced Wind Force and Half-step Advanced Lightning Force.
“No… Impossible!” The Ninth Leader’s saber descended downwards at Duan Ling Tian’s head, and his gaze didn’t leave Duan Ling Tian from the beginning until the end.
At the beginning, when he saw Duan Ling Tian condense an Origin Energy point force to defend against his saber slash, he couldn’t help but feel disdain in his heart.
However, when he saw the 3,000 ancient mammoth silhouettes that suddenly joined together above the head of Duan Ling Tian, he felt coldness surge up from his feet and shoot directly into his head!
The Tempest Point tore through the sky, and by relying on the strength of 3,000 ancient mammoths silhouettes, it blasted the spirit saber in the Ninth Leader’s hand flying.
The hand the Ninth Leader used to hold his saber split apart as expected, and fresh blood dripped down.
“You… You…” After the Ninth Leader was blasted back a few steps, he looked at Duan Ling Tian in terror.
But he hadn’t even had the chance to speak when another material Tempest Point flashed over and easily pierced through between his brows.
Ninth Leader’s body dropped to the ground, dead!
He followed in the footsteps of the rugged bandit…
“Avenge the Ninth Leader!” The eyes of the three bandits that charged at Duan Ling Tian went crimson red, and Origin Energy skyrocketed on the sabers in their hands that descended towards Duan Ling Tian.
The three of them attacked out with rage and used their full strength.
But, no matter how angry they were, it was unable to change the fact that they were only at the Half-step Void Stage.
Duan Ling Tian’s figure moved, seemed to have transformed into a gust of wind that easily avoided their attacks.
As his body moves, Duan Ling Tian suddenly raised his hand and pointed out thrice.
Swish! Swish! Swish!
Three Tempest Points tore through the sky and pieced the chests of the three Half-step Void Stage bandits and killed them.
Along with the three bandits crashing onto the ground, the gorge was deathly silent.
In the blink of an eye, one first level Void Prying Stage and three Half-step Void Stage martial artists had all died!
The four bandits that were killed were also the bandits with the strongest strength amongst those present here.
For a time, the remaining bandits all went pale.
“Lord, spare us!”
“Lord. Spare us!!”
Instantly, many bandits knelt on the ground as they kowtowed to Duan Ling Tian with shivering bodies.
When they realized they were approaching death, they were afraid.
With someone taking the lead, the remaining bandits knelt down onto the ground and begged for mercy with grievous voices.
They knew clearly that unless the violet clothed young man before them showed mercy, it would be difficult for them to escape death.
Duan Ling Tian stood before the group of bandits with a calms expression, and his gaze was extremely cold and indifferent.
“All of you know to be afraid now?” Finally, Duan Ling Tian spoke with a tone that was filled with extremely icy cold killing intent, and it caused the group of bandits to all go ghastly pale.
“Lord, spare us! So long as you spare us, we guarantee to not be bandits in the future.”
“Yeah, Lord, spare us! I won’t be a bandit anymore.”
The group of bandits made promises.
When he heard the promises of these bandits, not only did Duan Ling Tian not feel pity in his heart, he instead had slight disgust in his heart.
If the scene before him were to be placed in his previous lifetime, it was no different to promising to the court after killing someone. “I won’t kill anyone in the future, let me live.”
Everyone had to be responsible for the things they do.
“Only one of you can live.” Duan Ling Tian took a few steps backwards and stood at the entrance of the gorge to block off the way out for the bandits, then spoke indifferently.
As soon as Duan Ling Tian finished speaking, before many bandits were able to react, another bandit had swung out his saber to kill his former companions that were beside him.
The actions of this bandit jolted all the other bandits awake.
For the sake of surviving, the group of bandits all raised their sabers against each other, attacking their former companions.
After a short while, blood flowed into a river within the gorge.
In the blink of an eyes, only a few bandits remained standing.
The condition of these bandits weren’t so good, and they more or less had injuries on their bodies.
In next to no time, as if they’d discussed it previously, the remaining bandits attacked out at the same time and unleashed a chaotic battle.
Duan Ling Tian watched coldly from the side.
Right at this moment, he suddenly thought of something.
“Vice Dean Chi, all of them killing each other like this ought to be able to be counted into my mission points, right?” The old man that stood in the sky and was concealed within the clouds and mist above the gorge received Duan Ling Tian’s voice transmission.
“He actually noticed me?” The old man was slightly moved, and he was shocked in his heart. “No wonder when I sent someone to follow and protect him the last time, it was see through by him… Duan Ling Tian is actually even able to notice where I’m concealed.”
The old man was precisely the Dragon and Phoenix Academy’s Vice Dean Chi Ming.
“You didn’t use the assistance of external sources of strength, whereas they killed each other because of what you said… These dead bandits naturally are counted in your mission points.” Chi Ming replied Duan Ling Tian via voice transmission.
“That’s good.” Duan Ling Tian nodded.
