Chapter 584: Duan Ling Tian Enters The Ring
Translator: KurazyTolanzuraytor Editor: Jay
Luo Zhan and Chen Shao Shuai both nodded when they heard Duan Ling Tian’s words of consolation, but the corners of their mouths couldn’t help but curl into a wisp of a bitter expression.
Duan Ling Tian noticed the dejected feelings of Luo Zhan and Chen Shao Shuai.
Duan Ling Tian let out a breath of air when he saw his consolation was of no effect, and he sent a voice transmission into the ears of Chen Shao Shuai and Luo Zhan. “Both of you don’t have to belittle yourselves… No matter if it was Su Li, Long Yun, or me, it’s all because we wander about outside and obtain fortuitous encounters that we possess these accomplishments today.”
“If we didn’t have any fortuitous encounters, then we might not be able to compare to the two of you.” Duan Ling Tian spoke slowly.
When Luo Zhan and Chen Shao Shuai heard Duan Ling Tian’s words, their originally dim eyes abruptly lit up at this moment.
Both of them looked at each other and saw tacit understanding within the eyes of each other.
This was something that Duan Ling Tian didn’t quite notice.
Presently, Duan Ling Tian’s gaze had descended onto one of the remaining two young geniuses of the Bazho Imperial Kingdom.
This person had ascended onto a combat ring and was battling a sixth level Void Prying Stage martial artist.
In the end, he’d obtained victory! And his abilities were completely revealed before Duan Ling Tian’s eyes.
Sixth level of the Void Prying Stage.
Half-step Advanced Force.
Grade five spirit weapon.
“Kid from the Azure Forest Imperial Kingdom, amongst the five of you, it seems that only you haven’t ascended to the combat ring… You wouldn’t have occupied a position from the Azure Forest Imperial Kingdom just for the sake of watching the show, right?” The young man from Bazho Imperial Kingdom stood on the combat ring as he looked at Duan Ling Tian with a provocative gaze. “Do you dare ascend to the ring and fight me?”
This caused all the people that were intending to ascend to the combat ring and battle the young man from Bazho Imperial Kingdom to stop their footsteps.
They were happy to watch the show.
For a time, Duan Ling Tian had become the absolute center of attention.
“This young man is one of the five young geniuses from the Azure Forest Imperial Kingdom as well…. Yet up until now, he still hasn’t entered the ring.”
“He looks to be around the age of 25, and he’s even younger than Su Li.”
“The members of Bazho Imperial Kingdom are just like before, fond of choosing ripe persimmons to squash.”
“Haha! They took Su Li to be a ripe persimmon earlier… I almost laughed myself to death!”
“I wonder if this young man possesses a natural talent and comprehension ability like Su Li?”
“I don’t think so. Even in our Darkstone Empire, Su Li’s natural talent and comprehension ability could be considered to be at the top.”
The surrounding crowd of spectators discussed animatedly.
Under the gazes of everyone present, Duan Ling Tian moved, seeming to have transformed into a gust of wind that descended onto the combat ring and stand in confrontation with the young man from Bazho Imperial Kingdom.
On the other hand, when he saw Duan Ling Tian ascend to the combat ring so readily, the young man from Bazho Imperial Kingdom felt slightly lacking in confidence.
He originally thought that Duan Ling Tian wouldn’t dare ascend to the combat ring, and in this way, he would be able to wantonly humiliate Duan Ling Tian.
“What? Regret provoking me?” Duan Ling Tian looked at the young man as he spoke indifferently.
The young man’s expression sank slightly.
He was indeed regretful, but could he speak of it?
Could he afford to lose this face?
“How about this… I’ll give you a chance.” Duan Ling Tian’s gaze shot at the final young genius from Bazho Imperial Kingdom that was outside the combat ring. “You ascend the combat ring as well. I’ll challenge the both of you together!” As he finished speaking, Duan Ling Tian placed emphasis on his tone.
“Of course, if both of you don’t dare, you can admit defeat.” Duan Ling Tian’s face quickly revealed a bright and brilliant smile, and it seemed as if he was already sure that the two young men from Bazho Imperial Kingdom would admit defeat.
“Hmph! Playing tricks!” On the high platform, Wei Kun snorted coldly, and then he looked at Duan Ling Tian with an expression that seemed to be saying ‘I’ve already seen through your tricks.’
There were two reasons Wei Kun would think like this.
This first was that he saw Chi Ming frowning.
The second was that he didn’t think that this young man that was merely around the age of 25 would be so strong.
“Huang Dong, Hu Wei, since he insists on courting death, then both of you should properly fulfil his wishes!” Wei Kun’s voice transmission went out.
The two young geniuses from Bazho Imperial Kingdom heaved a sigh of relief when they heard Wei Kun.
“Since you want to court death, then I and Hu Wei will send you off!” The young man outside the combat ring, Huang Dong, flew up to descend onto the combat ring before standing shoulder to shoulder with Hu Wei in confrontation with Duan Ling Tian.
“Wait!” Right at this moment, a sonorous voice sounded out from the high platform.
It was Chi Ming he looked at King Yong and spoke with a ‘serious’ expression. “King Yong, these two young men from Bazho Imperial Kingdom fighting two against one seems to go against the rules of the Young Genius Competition, right?”
“Chi Ming!” King Yong hadn’t even spoken when Wei Kun couldn’t refrain from ridiculing. “Earlier, everyone present here heard it extremely clearly… It’s the member of your Azure Forest Imperial Kingdom that spoke of jointly challenging the two young geniuses of our Bazho Imperial Kingdom.”
“Now, you want to go back on his word? Do you respect King Yong?” Wei Kun’s words were spoken with righteousness.
“Begin.” King Yong had finally spoken, and he tacitly consented to the young geniuses of the Bazho Imperial Kingdom going two against one.
It was just like Wei Kun had said, this matter was brought up by the members of the Azure Forest Imperial Kingdom after all.
Since one had spoken such words, then one must pay the price for it!
Chi Ming sat back down, and his expression was extremely unsightly.
Duan Ling Tian looked at Chi Ming and was slightly bewildered.
What is Vice Dean Chi doing?
Does he have no confidence in me?
Right at this moment.
“Duan Ling Tian, seize the opportunity while those two people from Bazho Imperial Kingdom don’t know your ability to kill them before they admit defeat!” An excited voice transmission entered into Duan Ling Tian’s ears.
“Vice Dean Chi, you…” Duan Ling Tian was dumbstruck.
He was able to discern that this was Chi Ming’s voice transmission.
But the Chi Ming on the high platform seemed to be a different sight.
In next to no time, Duan Ling Tian understood.
Chi Ming was intentionally showing weakness to make the two representatives from Bazho Imperial Kingdom to put down their guard.
“He’s truly a sly old fox!” Duan Ling Tian thought to himself.
“Kid from the Azure Forest Imperial Kingdom… We’ll send you on your way now!” The Bazho Imperial Kingdom’s Hu Wei and Huang Dong revealed frenzied smiles as their figures flashed and they dashed out.
They used all their abilities the instant they attacked.
Sixth level of the Void Prying Stage.
Half-step Advanced Force.
Grade five spirit weapon.
Two figures that were swift like the wind flashed out, and they were like two venomous serpents that had gone berserk as they bit towards Duan Ling Tian in unison.
It was as if they wouldn’t stop until they bit Duan Ling Tian to death.
“Idiots!” The corners of Duan Ling Tian’s mouth curled into a slight cold smile, and a dim light flashed into appearance in the depths of his eyes.
Instantly, Duan Ling Tian’s Spiritual Force fused into his soul brand to execute the soul skill that belonged only to him.
An illusory space instantly enveloped Huang Dong and Hu Wei, whereas Duan Ling Tian instead stood on the spot, not moving like a mountain.
“Has this young genius from the Azure Forest Imperial Kingdom gone mad?”
“Is he courting death?”
The surrounding crowd of spectators were dumbstruck when they saw Duan Ling Tian didn’t make the slightest move when he was facing the combined attack of the two young men from Bazho Imperial Kingdom, and they all felt that Duan Ling Tian was looking for death.
But in the next moment, they were all stunned simultaneously.
What did I see?
Under the gazes of everyone present, the attacks of Hu Wei and Huang Dong actually turned around and flashed to the side at the instant their attacks were just about to descend onto Duan Ling Tian’s body.
Huang Dong and Hu Wei went left and right respectively as they separated and charged towards an empty place on the combat ring and attacked the air.
It was as if they’d lost their minds.
For a time, besides the members from the Azure Forest Imperial Kingdom who were mentally prepared since long ago, everyone present, including King Yong, were dumbstruck.
The extremely large center square of the Imperial City flowed with streams of people, yet at this moment, it was terrifyingly silent, and only waves of muffled breathing could be heard.
“What ability is that?” King Yong was the first to recover from his shock, and he had a serious expression.
“Have these two young geniuses from the Bazho Imperial Kingdom gone mad?”
“They’re actually attacking the air… Madmen!”
The surrounding crowd of spectators gradually recovered from their shock as well.
On the high platform, the Bazho Imperial Kingdom’s Wei Kun and the other representatives had extremely unsightly expressions.
“Huang Dong, Hu Wei, what are the two of you doing?!” Wei Kun’s voice transmission pierced into the ears of Huang Dong and Hu Wei.
Bu, the two of them seemed as if they’d utterly not heard him, and they remained indifferent, continuing to do their best to attack the air.
When Wei Kun instinctively looked at Chi Ming, he instead noticed Chi Ming looking at him as well.
At this moment, there wasn’t a single bit of worry on Chi Ming’s face.
Wei Kun suddenly realized that perhaps, he’d been deceived by Chi Ming…
“Look, quickly! They’re fighting each other.” Suddenly, someone shouted out.
Wei Kun glanced over. He saw that the two young geniuses from Bazho Imperial Kingdom had actually started attacking one another, and their eyes were completely red.
“Can anyone tell me what the f**k is going on?” When he saw Huang Dong and Hu Wei doing their utmost best to attack each other and that they would sooner or later perish together if this went on, Wei Kun’s face went gloomy, and he felt he was on the verge of going mad from anger.
Especially when he saw the violet clothed young man from the Azure Forest Imperial Kingdom standing at the side of the combat ring and was leisurely watching the show.
“Pu!” Wei Kun’s vital energy and blood roiled and he was angered to the point he spat out a mouthful of blood.
“King Yong…. I admit defeat on their behalf!” Wei Kun looked at King Yong and spoke with slight loss of composure.
Wei Kun didn’t doubt it in the slightest that if this were to continue, all of the five most outstanding young geniuses of the Bazho Imperial Kingdom he brought over would be dead.
“It’s only effective if they themselves admit defeat… This is the rules.” King Yong replied indifferently.
Wei Kun’s body shook as his eyes went crimson red.
“Huang Dong! Hu Wei! Both of you, stop!!” When he noticed voice transmissions were of no use, Wei Kun shouted out with a grim voice as he wanted to restrain Huang Dong and Hu Wei.
But unfortunately, Huang Dong and Hu Wei still didn’t hear him, and they continued battling each other…
Not long after, the two of them were fully covered in injuries.
Finally, Huang Dong noticed a flaw and killed Hu Wei who was a similar strength as him, whereas Huang Dong whose body was covered in injuries was on the verge of collapse as well.
“Hahahaha… Members of the Azure Forest Imperial Kingdom are nothing special!” Huang Dong stood there as he laughed loudly into the sky.
His laughter quickly suppressed the clamorous and bustling noise of the scene and caused the scene to return to deathly silence.
After a short moment.
“Has this Huang Dong really gone mad? Does he think he killed the person from the Azure Forest Imperial Kingdom?”
“Looks like he has really lost his mind!”
Many people looked at Huang Dong with a strange gaze.
“Pu!” On the high platform, Wei Kun was once again angered to the point he spat out a mouthful of blood, and his body started trembling intensely.
What exactly was going on?
Why did such a thing happen?
