“What kind of f**cking place is this?” Zhao Ming’s face was grim.
From the beginning until the end, Tang Huo had been watching Zhao Ming’s actions.
He’s originally thought that when Zhao Ming attack with full force, Zhao Ming would be able to easily obliterate the barrier condensed from the shapeless energy…
However, the outcome instead exceeded his expectations!
Zhao Ming’s full force strike was actually unable to blast open this barrier.
“Zhao Ming, let’s join forces!” Tang Huo shouted out coldly, and his face was filled with visible rage.
He never expected that he, who’d lived for more than half his life, was actually tricked by a little fellow around the age of 20.
This was absolutely a terrible humiliation!
“Alright!” Zhao Ming replied.
Subsequently, the two great sixth level Void Initiation Stage experts joined forces to blast towards a point on the barrier before them…
However, the outcome was the same.
The barrier didn’t budge an inch.
“Dammit! How did Duan Ling Tian go out?” Zhao Ming gnashed his teeth as he spoke.
“He rushed out from here… I didn’t notice exactly how he went out.” Tang Huo’s expression was extremely unsightly as well.
“Let’s look around and see if there’s an exit.” Subsequently, Tang Huo and Zhao Ming looked around, intending to find an exit.
In the end, they instead noticed that the lake they were at was completely enveloped by the barrier formed from the shapeless energy.
That barrier had even pierced deep into the ground, and it caused them to be unable to dig a way out.
“Dammit! Exactly what sort of f**cking place is this? How exactly is that layer of barrier formed?” Zhao Ming had an exasperated expression.
Subsequently, Zhao Ming looked at Tang Hu and was almost roaring. “It’s all because of you! All of this wouldn’t have happened if we killed Duan Ling Tian directly.”
Tang Huo’s face sank. “Zhao Ming! You get it straight… If it wasn’t for you coveting the 10,000 Year Stalactite Milk as well, would you let me keep him alive? After all is said and done, all this is because of our greed.”
Zhao Ming’s figure shook and he was at a loss of what to say.
That’s right, if it wasn’t for me being greedy towards the 10,000 Year Stalactite Milk Duan Ling Tian spoke of, all this wouldn’t have occurred.
At this moment, he felt extreme regret.
However, there was no medicine for regret in this world.
“Once I go out, I’ll surely burn Duan Ling Tian’s bones and scatter his ashes! I, Zhao Ming, don’t want any 10,000 Year Stalactite Milk anymore.” Zhao Ming spoke with an unsightly expression.
“Hmph! It’s uncertain whether we’re able to go out now… But, if we’re able to go out, I won’t allow Duan Ling Tian to live before me for a moment longer!” Tang Huo was enraged as well, and his eyes burned with extreme flames of rage.
Within the Inscription Formation, Tang Huo and Zhao Ming were exasperated.
Whereas outside the Inscription Formation, on a large tree in the spacious gorge.
Duan Ling Tian lay on the tree with his leg crossed over the other as he cozily bathed under the sun…
“Big Brother Ling Tian, you’re too bad… You actually tricked them to come here.” The little gold mouse stood on the tree trunk, and her body swung up and down like a swing.
“Bad?” Duan Ling Tian shook his head and smiled, then extended his hand to block out the burning sun. “If I didn’t do this, I’ll be killed by them sooner or later… Even if I really take them to the 10,000 Year Stalactite Milk on Megrez Peak, they’d abide by the vow and let me off for a time, but it wouldn’t be long before they’d surely make a move against me once more!”
“Hehe… I was curious earlier about why Big Brother Ling Tian would bring them here. So it turned out that it was to trap them.” The little gold mouse’s jade green eyes flickered with a cunning smile.
“They can only blame themselves for being unfortunate!” The corners of Duan Ling Tian’s mouth curved slightly, and a wisp of disdain appeared.
The things that happened today were smooth, to the point it caused him to feel slight disbelief.
Of course, he knew that all this was because Tang Huo and Zhao Ming didn’t have any knowledge towards the Dao of Inscriptions.
Otherwise, they wouldn’t be tricked to easily.
“Big Brother Ling Tian, they wouldn’t force their way out, right? Should we leave here quickly?” The little gold mouse’s voice transmission contained fear mixed within.
No matter if it was Tang Huo or Zhao Ming, they were both sixth level Void Initiation Stage experts, and they were far from someone she could go against.
“There’s no need. The Senior that left that Inscription Formation behind is an existence at the Void Transformation Stage or above!” Duan Ling Tian shook his head. “Unless a Void Transformation Stage expert lends a hand, or perhaps a few experts at the seventh level of the Void Interpretation Stage and above joined forces… Otherwise, don’t dream of breaking open this Inscription Formation.”
“Then wouldn’t that mean that they’d be trapped to death within it?” The little gold mouse said in shock.
“If nothing unexpected happened, they’d surely be trapped to death within it… Of course, if they’re able to find that abode and obtained the experiences in the Dao of Inscriptions left behind by that Senior, they might have a chance of breaking open the formation and leaving,” Duan Ling Tian said slowly.
“They have a chance to come out?” The little gold mouse was slightly afraid.
“Don’t worry, the Dao of Inscriptions is greatly profound… They’d at least need to spend over 10 years of study to have some accomplishments in the Dao of Inscriptions and obtain the ability to break open the formation.” Duan Ling Tian wasn’t worried in the slightest. “If I’m still afraid of them after over 10 years, then I can directly kill them myself.”
Over 10 years…
Not to mention over 10 years, even if it was the Martial Competition of the Ten Dynasties that was four years from now. If he didn’t have a cultivation at the seventh level of the Void Initiation Stage or above, it would probably even be difficult for him to become eminent.
The little gold mouse eased up when she heard this.
“I’ll go bid my farewells to them, then we’ll return to Blackwind Ridge… No matter what, I must obtain the most points in the mission this time! Only the person that is ranked number one is able to obtain the Void Refining Fruit.” Duan Ling Tian stood up and his gaze descended onto the ball of mist and clouds in the gorge.
Subsequently, his Spiritual Force fused into it, and he opened a tiny gap on the Inscription Formation.
Next, his voice transmission passed through the inconspicuous little gap and entered into the ears of Tang Huo and Zhao Ming who were trapped within. “Elder Tang Huo, Elder Zhao Ming… The both of you can live in seclusion in there in the future.”
“There are many fishes in the lake and it ought to not cause the two of you to die from starvation… HAHAHAHA!” Duan Ling Tian’s voice transmission was filled with ridicule.
Whereas at the instant that Duan Ling Tian’s voice transmission was severed by the little gap on the Inscription Formation that had closed up.
“Duan Ling Tian!” Tang Huo and Zhao Ming’s flames of rage was lighted by Duan Ling Tian once more.
However, it was useless no matter how they vented…
They weren’t able to forcefully break open the Inscription Formation in the end.
“Little Gold, let’s go!” Whereas at this moment, Duan Ling Tian sat onto the back of the little gold mouse that had enlarged herself and headed towards the Azure Forest Imperial Kingdom.
Presently, the little gold mouse wasn’t the little gold mouse of the past.
As a demon beast whose cultivation had broken through to the seventh level of the Void Prying Stage, the little gold mouse’s speed was extremely swift.
Only three days had passed when she’d brought Duan Ling Tian back to Blackwind Ridge.
“That two old fellows have wasted so much of my time… I wonder if there are people who have surpassed my previous points.” Duan Ling Tian muttered and he had an unhappy expression.
If Duan Ling Tian’s muttering was heard by Tang Huo and Zhao Ming who were trapped in the Inscription Formation, their expressions would surely be extremely brilliant.
“The urgent task at hand is to find Vice Dean Chi Ming first… Otherwise, if there’s no one to record my score, it would be useless no matter how many bandits I kill.” After spending half a day of time, Duan Ling Tian had finally found Chi Ming.
When he found Chi Ming, Chi Ming was sighing.
“Vice Dean Chi.” Chi Ming’s thoughts that had drifted away were pulled back when Duan Ling Tian called out to him.
“Duan… Duan Ling Tian?!” Chi Ming was completely dumbstruck when he saw Duan Ling Tian.
At the beginning, he even thought that he was seeing things, but before long, he confirmed it.
The person that stood before him was indeed Duan Ling Tian himself, without a doubt.
“Duan Ling Tian, how did you escape from the hands of those two old fellows?” Chi Ming asked curiously.
“It’s a long story, I’ll slowly tell Vice Dean when I have time in the future… Now that I speak of it, they’ve already wasted three days of my time. Vice Dean Chi, are there people who have surpassed my points now?” Duan Ling Tian asked.
“Yes.” Chi Ming nodded and said slowly, “Not long ago, Crazy Young Master found the lair of the Seventh Leader of the bandits like you did, and killed all 50 plus bandits! Besides that, the Seventh Leader was a martial artist at the second level of the Void Prying Stage.”
50 plus bandits?
Duan Ling Tian’s pupils constricted as he sighed in surprise. “I never imagined that Crazy Young Master’s luck was so good…”
The Seventh Leader was at the second level of the Void Prying Stage, and he was equivalent to 30 points, then adding on another 50 plus bandits to that.
“It’s very likely that Crazy Young Master’s points now have already passed 200!” Duan Ling Tian felt pressure.
“Vice Dean Chi, I want to continue,” said Duan Ling Tian to Chi Ming.
Chi Ming nodded. “Go!”
Chi Ming had a complicated gaze as he looked at Duan Ling Tian transforming into a bolt o violet lightning and vanishing before him.
Duan Ling Tian’s sudden return had exceeded his expectations.
“Now, I’m slightly hoping that this Duan Ling Tian is able to seize the first in the experience mission this time… If he gets to consume that Void Refining Fruit, his cultivation would transcend above all the Inner Hall students!” At the same time that Chi Ming followed Duan Ling Tian, his gaze flickered. “Moreover, he’s extremely mysterious… Perhaps he even possesses many abilities that are beyond others’ expectations.”
The reason Chi Ming guessed like this was because Duan Ling Tian was able to shake off the two Guardian Elders of the Azure Forest Tri-Sect and returned safely.
After all, those two Guardian Elders of the Azure Forest Tri-Sect were sixth level Void Initiation Stage experts, and being able to return under their gazes was sufficient to show how extraordinary Duan Ling Tian was.
“Perhaps Duan Ling Tian can represent our Azure Forest Imperial Kingdom to become eminent on the Darkstone Empire’s stage and obtain the qualifications to head to the Darkhan Dynasty to compete with the young geniuses of the Darkhan Dynasty and the various empires!” When he thought up to here, Chi Ming felt a wave of excitement.
“Duan Ling Tian, I hope you can go even further and create a legend of our Azure Forest Imperial Kingdom… A young expert that is able to compare with the most outstanding young geniuses of the Darkhan Dynasty has never appeared in our Azure Forest Imperial Kingdom.” Chi Ming followed behind Duan Ling Tian like a shadow.
He was looking forward to Duan Ling Tian obtaining the most points and winning the first in the experience missions this time.
