Even the calmest person would have a time when they got enraged!
Zhang Shou Yuan’s attitude caused Duan Ling Tian’s brows to be unable to refrain from frowning.
This is Big Brother Zhang’s second brother?
Right at this moment, a voice transmission clearly entered into Duan Ling Tian’s ears.
“Brother Ling Tian, this is my second brother of the same father but different mother. Since we were young, he’s always refused to accept my superiority and would make it difficult for me at every turn… This time, my sudden return has seized his limelight, and he’s become even more dissatisfied.”
“But his strength is inferior to me, so he doesn’t dare directly offend me… Actually, he’s treating you like this now because he’s intentionally making it difficult for me, so you don’t have to care about it.”
Duan Ling Tian was able to discern that this was Zhang Shou Yong’s voice transmission.
So they have different mothers. Duan Ling Tian came to a sudden understanding.
He was wondering with Zhang Shou Yong’s straightforward character, how could Zhang Shou Yong have such a brother. So it turned out that they grew up drinking different milk.
It was understandable now.
“Big Brother Zhang, don’t worry, I won’t go the extent of fussing over it with him.” Duan Ling Tian shrugged and replied via voice transmission.
At the same time, Duan Ling Tian’s Spiritual Force stretched out to envelop Zhang Shou Yuan…
At the first possible moment, he’d detected Zhang Shou Yuan’s cultivation.
Sixth level of the Void Initiation Stage!
Needless to say, although Zhang Shou Yuan was slightly arrogant, his strength and natural talent was not bad.
His age wasn’t much older than the Darkstone Empire’s young genius, Mo Xuan, but his cultivation instead seemed to surpass Mo Xuan.
“Big Brother, sit, also this… What was it again?” Zhang Shou Yuan asked Zhang Shou Yong to sit before looking at Duan Ling Tian and frowning as he dug his ears. “Sorry, my memory isn’t good. I’ve forgotten your name.”
“You won’t mind introducing yourself once more, right?” Zhang Shou Yuan looked at Duan Ling Tian and his eyes narrowed as he asked with a smile.
“Duan Ling Tian.” Duan Ling Tian glanced indifferently at Zhang Shou Yuan as he spoke word by word.
“Duan Ling Tian? Your name isn’t bad, it’s arrogant enough! I only wonder if you have the qualifications to possess such an arrogant name.” Zhang Shou Yuan stared at Duan Ling Tian as flowing lights flickered in his eyes, and there was no lack of provocation within his gaze.
“It’s only a name, is there any need of qualification?” Duan Ling Tian shook his head and sat down by himself before looking at Zhang Shou Yong. “Big Brother Zhang, we parted hastily the last time, and I didn’t have the chance to properly get together with you… Once sister-in-law brings over the fine wine and delicacies she went to prepare, we won’t stop until we get drunk today!”
“Alright! I’ll enjoy to the fullest with Brother Ling Tian today.” Zhang Shou Yong withdrew the gaze he glared at Zhang Shou Yuan with, and he looked at Duan Ling Tian as he laughed heartily, whereas, the face Zhang Shou Yuan who stood at the side went completely dark.
What an arrogant kid! Zhang Shou Yuan stared at Duan Ling Tian with fierce lights flickering in his eyes.
As far as he was concerned, a kid around the age of 25 actually daring to express displeasure towards him was simply courting death!
Does this kid really think that I, Zhang Shou Yuan, am a weakling?
“Big Brother.” Zhang Shou Yuan looked at Zhang Shou Yong and lightly smiled as he asked. “Earlier, although I was quite a distance away, I still heard you and this friend of yours discussing the Dynasty Martial Competition… He seemed to be a young genius that has become eminent in the Darkstone Empire and has come to participate in our Darkhan Dynasty’s Martial Competition?”
“So what if he is?” Zhang Shou Yong frowned and spoke slightly impatiently.
He knew this second brother of his extremely well, and he faintly realized what this second brother of his intended to do now.
Moreover, it was even targeted at Duan Ling Tian.
His heart jerked and he prepared himself. So long as this second brother of his dared act rashly, he would stop it at the first possible moment.
“In this way, although this friend of Big Brother’s is young, his strength is extremely high? It’s even to the extent that his natural talent might even be stronger than Big Brother?” Zhan Shou Yuan continued.
“Brother Ling Tian’s natural talent is naturally stronger than mine,” said Zhang Shou Yong.
“I truly never imagined that I, Zhang Shou Yuan, would have the fortune to see a person that Big Brother feel himself to be inferior to… This is Brother Ling Tian, right?” Zhang Shou Yuan’s face revealed a brilliant smile, and he looked at Duan Ling Tian in the end. “Brother Ling Tian, my Big Brother acknowledged that his natural talent is inferior to you, I presume that even though you’re young, your cultivation is surely extremely extraordinary?”
“You’re too kind.” Duan Ling Tian nodded indifferently.
The depths of Zhang Shou Yuan’s eyes flickered with a flowing light that expressed his feelings from his scheme being successful, and he went straight to the point. “Brother Ling Tian, while my sister-in-law hasn’t brought the fine wine and delicacies over… How about we spar? I really want to experience your strength.”
At this moment, Zhang Shou Yuan had completely exposed his intentions.
Earlier, his constant flattery of Duan Ling Tian was actually only foreshadowing, and what he was waiting for was precisely this moment.
The moment to make Duan Ling Tian be unable to refuse his challenge to a spar.
“Hmph! A sixth level Void Initiation Stage martial artist like you wants to bully a 20 plus year old young man? Don’t you feel ashamed?” Finally, Zhang Shou Yong couldn’t watch any longer.
“Big Brother, your words are mistaken… I’m only admiring Brother Ling Tian’s natural talent and strength, and I only want to have a spar with him.” Zhang Shou Yuan shook his head and stared at Duan Ling Tian as he said slowly, “Brother Ling Tian, are you willing to give me face and spar with me? During the spar between the two us, we will stop before injuring the other and be sure not to harm to friendly feelings between us.”
“Of course, if Brother Ling Tian doesn’t dare, then forget it…” As he finished speaking, Zhang Shou Yuan’s voice became strange and was slightly sarcastic.
“Brother Ling Tian, ignore him!” Zhang Shou Yuan’s voice transmission entered into Duan Ling Tian’s ears. “He simply wants to use you to strike a blow at me… If you agree to his request, then you’ll have fallen in his trap.”
But Zhang Shou Yong’s persuasion was obviously useless.
“You’re Big Brother Zhang’s second brother, so since you’ve spoken, I naturally won’t refuse… I agree to spar with you.” Duan Ling Tian looked at Zhang Shou Yuan and spoke word by word.
“Haha… Good! Brother Ling Tian is straightforward as expected.” Zhang Shou Yuan laughed loudly, and his eyes were filled with a sheen that reflected his scheme had been successful.
Subsequently, Zhang Shou Yuan looked towards the surroundings and said to Duan Ling Tian. “Brother Ling Tian, even though we’re stopping before injuring the other, but because this space is too small… If I accidentally hit you into the lake and cause you to be soaked through like a chicken in soup, you have to excuse me.” As he finished speaking, Zhang Shou Yuan’s eyes were filled with a ridiculing expression.
It was as if he’d already seen Duan Ling Tian being blasted down the lake and drowned in water to become like a chicken soaked in soup.
“Of course.” Duan Ling Tian nodded, and then said, “But if you accidentally fall into the lake, I hope you can excuse me as well.”
“Sure.” Zhang Shou Yuan laughed as he replied, and he thought that Duan Ling Tian said this because Duan Ling Tian was trying to go at odds with him.
He really didn’t take a 20 plus year old young man seriously.
As far as he was concerned, after Duan Ling Tian found out of his cultivation from his Big Brother, yet still dared agree to spar with him was none other than Duan Ling Tian being unable to refuse do to being unable to accept the loss of face and was unable to refuse.
Actually, Duan Ling Tian had already prepared himself to be beaten.
What he needed to do now was to act in accordance with Duan Ling Tian and properly beat Duan Ling Tian up, and make Duan Ling Tian enter the lake to sober up.
In this way, he would be able to feel proud before his Big Brother.
If you want to blame something, then blame yourself for being acquainted with Zhang Shou Yong and even became friends with him! Zhang Shou Yuan’s heart was filled with boundless ruthlessness.
“Since it’s like this, then place start.” Duan Ling Tian left his seat and stood at the side of the pergola, and then he waited for Zhang Shou Yuan to attack after nodded to Zhang Shou Yuan.
From the beginning until the end, Duan Ling Tian stood on the spot and remained unmoving like a mountain.
“Brother Ling Tian is direct as expected! Since it’s like this, then I won’t hold back.” Zhang Shou Yuan replied before the Origin Energy on his body pulsated and even converged onto his legs.
For a time, the energy of heaven and earth roiled above his head, and in the end, it transformed into eight lifelike ancient horned dragon silhouettes that coiled down from above.
Instantly, Zhang Shou Yuan moved.
His entire body seemed to have transformed into a gust of wind that flashed straight towards Duan Ling Tian.
At the side of the eight ancient horned dragon silhouettes above him, another five ancient horned dragon silhouettes appeared…
Within the raging Origin Energy on Zhang Shou Yuan’s body, traces of blue colored energy seemed to have appeared.
Fifth level Water Concept!
The instant that Zhang Shou Yuan attacked, Zhang Shou Yong’s heart went up to his throat, and his expression became serious.
He didn’t know why Duan Ling Tian would so directly accept his second brother’s challenge.
But with Duan Ling Tian’s persistence, it wasn’t good for him to dissuade Duan Ling Tian.
Moreover, as far as he was concerned, this was only a spar, and Duan Ling Tian would at most suffer some light injuries and nothing serious.
If his second brother dared attack ruthlessly, then he wouldn’t stand idly by.
“Bring it on!” When he saw Zhang Shou Yuan seemed to have transformed into a gust of wind that blew over, Duan Ling Tian’s eyes squinted as two strands of indistinct dim lights seemed to appear within.
At the same time, Duan Ling Tian’s Spiritual Force pierced into the soul brand in the depths of his soul.
Instantly, Duan Ling Tian utilized his soul skill.
An illusory space was constructed by Duan Ling Tian, and it swept out to envelop Zhang Shou Yuan who was pouncing at him.
In this instant, the world that Zhang Shou Yuan was in underwent a tremendous change.
“This…” Zhang Shou Yong was completely stunned when he saw the scene before him.
What have I seen?
The attack of his second brother, Zhang Shou Yuan, covered the heaven and earth and was just about to descend onto Duan Ling Tian and blast Duan Ling Tian flying when at this critical moment, Zhang Shou Yuan moved away himself.
More precisely speaking, Zhang Shou Yuan had turned to attack the air at the side, and he barely avoided Duan Ling Tian who stood on the spot without moving.
“What’s going on?” The strange scene before him caused Zhang Shou Yong to be dumbstruck.
“What’s Second Young Master doing?” Meanwhile, many Zhang Clan servants that were all around the pergolas at the center of the lake stopped the work they were doing, and stared blankly at the scene before them.
The scene before them was difficult to imagine, and they only felt disbelief.
In next to no time, everyone saw.
“Duan Ling Tian, your strength is indeed not bad… But I won’t continue playing with you!” Zhang Shou Yuan who ceaselessly turned about to smash chaotically at the surrounding air suddenly shouted out explosively, and his entire body seemed to have transformed into a cannonball that fiercely charged out of the pergola.
