Translator: KurazyTolanzuraytor Editor: Jay
“Eh.” In next to no time, Duan Ling Tian noticed that when faced with the temptation of the Void Fuse Fruit, most of the young geniuses, including him, were filled with yearning.
Only two people seemed to not mind in the slightest.
Su Li! Long Yun!
“Both of them have Masters from the Foreign Lands… Perhaps they’ve already consumed a Void Fuse Fruit.” Duan Ling Tian guessed.
The effect of the Void Fuse Fruit would decrease greatly when consumed the second time, and its benefit was extremely insignificant.
Under his curiosity, Duan Ling Tian couldn’t help but ask Su Li via voice transmission.
Su Li nodded when he heard Duan Ling Tian and replied via voice transmission. “Not long ago, Master granted me a Void Fuse Fruit, and its medicinal strength hasn’t been completely absorbed. So long as I completely absorb the Void Fuse Fruit’s medicinal strength, then it would be sufficient for me to breakthrough to the Void Initiation Stage.”
Void Initiation Stage!
Duan Ling Tian’s pupils constricted, and he looked at Su Li with slight astonishment. “Su Li, you… Comprehended Sword Concept?”
Su Li said the so long as he finished absorbing the spirit fruit’s medicinal strength, he would be able to directly break through to the Void Initiation Stage.
These words were sufficient for Duan Ling Tian to have many thoughts flash through his mind.
“Yes.” Su Li nodded lightly. “I just comprehended it two months ago.”
The facts proved that Duan Ling Tian’s guess was correct.
“He comprehended Sword Concept two months ago?” Duan Ling Tian couldn’t help but sigh with emotion.
Su Li’s comprehension ability caused him to feel shock.
Duan Ling Tian recalled all those years ago when Su Li appeared before him as a sword cultivator.
At that time, the red clothed young man that stood out in the Iron Blood Army’s Genius Camp had grown to such an extent now.
Duan Ling Tian knew clearly in his heart that even though Su Li’s cultivation was pushed up to this level with various treasures from his Master from the Foreign Lands…
But Su Li’s comprehension of Concept was entirely obtained by relying on his own comprehension ability.
Su Li’s comprehension ability could be said to be shocking.
Su Li was simply a sword cultivator that was born to the sword.
“Duan Ling Tian, I’ll try my best during the Young Genius Competition this time… If I obtain the first, then I’ll give you the Void Fuse Fruit.” Su Li’s voice transmission entered into Duan Ling Tian’s ears once more, and it caused Duan Ling Tian’s body to imperceptibly tremble.
He was able to discern that Su Li has spoke this promise with sincerity, and warmth arose in his heart.
“Su Li, don’t look down on me… You might not be a match for me now.” Duan Ling Tian smiled as he sent a voice transmission, and his tone was filled with confidence.
“I’ll wait and see!” Su Li’s gaze lit up abruptly and he was filled with yearning.
Right at this moment, King Yong who stood on the high platform spoke once again. “Now, I’ll give all of you 15 minutes to get ready… The Young Genius Competition this time will begin after 15 minutes!”
The group of young geniuses that were originally mentally tense heaved a sigh of relief when they heard King Yong.
Some of the people started stretching their bodies.
The young geniuses of the various powers and Imperial Kingdoms were ready to jump at each other’s throats.
“Duan Ling Tian, I’ll defeat you today!” A voice filled with confidence sounded out by Duan Ling Tian’s ear.
Even though Duan Ling Tian didn’t turn around, yet he was still able to discern that this was Long Yun’s voice.
“I anticipate it extremely.” Duan Ling Tian spoke indifferently, and he seemed to not take Long Yun’s words seriously.
“Tsk tsk… Looks like it’s just as Revered Elder Wei said, your Azure Forest Imperial Kingdom really doesn’t have any talented people left.” An extremely mocking voice sounded out by the ears of Duan Ling Tian and the others.
Duan Ling Tian was the first to frown and look over.
He saw a young man around the age of 35 walking over shoulder to shoulder with another four young men around the age of 30, and they revealed expressions of ridicule as they looked at Duan Ling Tian’s group.
The person that spoke out in ridicule was precisely the young man around the age of 35.
“Two little kids that I’ve never head off have actually occupied two positions from the Azure Forest Imperial Kingdom… Five great young masters of the Azure Forest Imperial Kingdom? Looks like they’re just a f*cking joke.” Another young man ridiculed.
Expressions of ridicule arose on the faces of the other three young men as well.
Right when Luo Zhan, Chen Shao Shuai, and Long Yun’s expressions went grim.
“Idiots!” Duan Ling Tian glanced indifferently at the five of them as he slowly spat out a word.
Right at the earlier instant, Duan Ling Tian received Chi Ming’s voice transmission, and he found out of the identity of these five people.
The five young geniuses of the Bazho Imperial Kingdom, whereas, the old fellow that was standing in sharp opposition with Chi Ming was precisely the Revered Elder of the Bazho Imperial Kingdom’s Imperial Family and one of the two representatives of the Bazho Imperial Kingdom this time.
That old fellow’s name was Wei Kun.
So, Duan Ling Tian wasn’t courteous in the slightest towards these five people that came to provoke them.
“You… What did you call us?!” The five young men of the Bazho Imperial Kingdom went gloomy.
“Haha…” Luo Zhan started laughing loudly, and he spoke with a sonorous voice that was filled with arrogance and was without restraint. “Is there something wrong with the ears of you idiots?”
“I’ve heard since long ago that the Bazho Imperial Kingdom abounded with idiots. Now that I’ve met all of you, it really deserves its reputation.” Chen Shao Shuai ridiculed as well, and his words were extremely blunt.
Obviously, Chen Shao Shuai and the others had received Chi Ming’s voice transmission reminder, and they knew of the identities of these people.
“Trash!” Long Yun glanced at the five young men from the Bazho Imperial Kingdom with contempt, and his eyes were filled with disdain.
At this moment, Long Yun stood on the same united front as Duan Ling Tian’s group.
They represented the Azure Forest Imperial Kingdom.
They shared both weal and woe when facing outsiders.
The expressions of the five young men from Bazho Imperial Kingdom were livid, and their bodies even trembled from anger.
What had they been humiliated like this by another?
“All of you… All of you are courting death!” The young man from Bazho Imperial Kingdom that was around 35 had a gloomy expression, and his eyes were filled with ruthlessness. “I’ll surely trample on all of you beneath my feet when the Young Genius Competition Begins! I’ll let all of you know who’s the true trash.”
“All of you have infuriated me, you’re dead!” Another young man from Bazho Imperial Kingdom licked his dry lips as he emitted awe-inspiring killing intent from his eyes.
“You two little kids, you haven’t even grown hair yet you dare participate in the Young Genius Competition of the Darkstone Empire? I’ll properly teach the two of you a lesson today!” Another young man from Bazho Imperial Kingdom looked towards Duan Ling Tian and Su Li with a gaze filled with ruthlessness.
The two remaining young men from Bazho Imperial Kingdom both had killing intent leaping about within their eyes.
“We’ll see.” Luo Zhan sneered.
Along with the departure of the five young men from Bazho Imperial Kingdom, the area where Duan Ling Tian’s group of five were had returned to calm.
This was only a small incident, and it didn’t even draw the attention of many people.
Only the four representatives of the Azure Forest Imperial Kingdom and Bazho Imperial Kingdom paid slight attention to this.
15 minutes quickly passed by.
“Now, a combat ringmaster should ascend onto each of the nine combat rings, and the others may ascend the combat ring to issue a challenge! In the end, the nine great combat ringmasters and the number one young genius of the Empire that’s able to defeat all the nine great combat ringmasters will be decided on!” King Yong stood up once more and his extremely sonorous voice sounded out.
“You’re only able to utilize spirit weapons and no other external source of strength during the Young Genius Competition today.” King Yong continued.
Other external sources of strength included Inscriptions and any other strength that didn’t belong to them.
“Duan Ling Tian, where’s Little Gold?” Luo Zhan looked at Duan Ling Tian’s shoulder and asked curiously.
In the past, he’d already become accustomed to a little gold mouse always standing on Duan Ling Tian’s shoulder.
Earlier, he felt that something was lacking on Duan Ling Tian, and after King Yong’s ‘reminder,’ he finally recalled the little gold mouse.
“I don’t know where she is now… She got lost.” Duan Ling Tian laughed bitterly.
Luo Zhan and the others couldn’t help but be stunned.
“How did she get lost?” Chen Shao Shuai asked.
Although Su Li didn’t ask, but he looked curiously at Duan Ling Tian.
“It was the sandstorm.” Duan Ling Tian sighed.
“Sandstorm?” Luo Zhan and the others were first stunned, then they seemed to have recalled something, and their expressions went pale.
“Duan… Duan Ling Tian… You went to the Darkhan Dynasty’s southern desert?” Chen Shao Shuai took a deep breath and asked.
In the Darkhan Dynasty, only the southern desert of the Darkhan Dynasty had sandstorms.
This was something that anyone who knew general knowledge would know.
Luo Zhan and Su Li were no exception.
“You encountered a sandstorm, yet didn’t die… Duan Ling Tian, you’re really lucky.” Long Yun looked at Duan Ling Tian with battle intent surging in his eyes. “Looks like even the heavens want you to suffer defeat at my hands!”
“Long Yun, you seem to be extremely confident of yourself now.” Duan Ling Tian glanced deeply at Long Yun.
Long Yun raised his hand and had an expression filled with arrogance.
“Duan Ling Tian, why did you head to the Darkhan Dynasty’s southern desert?” Su Li asked via voice transmission.
His tone was filled with bewilderment.
“I originally intended to go look around in the Darkhan Dynasty, but I unexpectedly accidentally entered into the southern desert.” Duan Ling Tian replied via voice transmission.
He didn’t speak the truth.
After all, the Rebirth Pill was his secret.
Perhaps, Su Li wouldn’t covet his Rebirth Pill.
But the temptation of the Rebirth Pill was too great…
Even if it was Su Li’s Master that came from the Foreign Lands, he would probably be unable to refuse the temptation of the Rebirth Pill.
So, Duan Ling Tian would absolutely not reveal the Rebirth Pill.
For the sake of protecting himself, and for the sake of protecting the people by his side.
Su Li nodded with sudden understanding, and he didn’t doubt Duan Ling Tian.
Meanwhile, there were already nine young geniuses that had taken the lead to ascend to the nine combat rings and had become the initial combat ringmasters of the various combat rings.
Besides the nine young geniuses that followed them up, the remaining young geniuses stood outside the combat rings and spectated.
In next to no time, nine fierce battles started.
Numerous figures fluttered like the wind on the nine combat rings, sword and saber moving back and forth, and they fought like a raging fire.
“12 fourth level Void Prying Stage martial artists and 6 fifth level Void Prying Stage martial artists.” Duan Ling Tian’s eyesight was sharp, and he discerned their cultivations by looking at the ancient horned dragon silhouettes and ancient mammoth silhouettes in the sky above the 18 people.
In next to no time, the outcome of the battles on the nine combat rights had been decided one after the other.
Six fifth level Void Prying Stage young geniuses accomplished their wish and obtained victory.
On the other three combat rings, amongst the three fourth level Void Prying Stage martial artists one had defeated his opponent by relying on the might of the spirit weapon in his hand, and the other two relied on their Force that surpassed their opponent.
Instantly, the streams of spectators outside the combat ring cheered.
