Chapter 671: Duan Ling Tian Displaying His Skill
Translator: KurazyTolanzuraytor Editor: Jay
The possessor of command token No. 30 was a young man around the age of 35.
Needless to say, the young geniuses of the various Empires were top genius martial artists in the Empires they were from, and they possessed their own pride.
Duan Ling Tian’s opponent was no exception.
The young man had an arrogant expression as he sized Duan Ling Tian up with contempt, and asked with disdain. “You’re that kid that advanced automatically in the first round?”
However, Duan Ling Tian paid no attention to the young man, or perhaps, it could be said that Duan Ling Tian couldn’t be bothered.
After he used his Spiritual Force to detect his opponent’s cultivation, Duan Ling Tian had already completely disregarded his opponent.
A fifth level Void Initiation Stage martial artist was of no threat to him in the slightest.
“Kid, you’re rather arrogant!” When he saw Duan Ling Tian disregard him, the young man’s face sank, and his eyes revealed a ruthless sheen as he spoke in a deep voice. “Do you know that no one has dared disregard me?”
“Someone has today.” Duan Ling Tian still didn’t look at the young man as he straightened out his sleeves and spoke unhurriedly.
“Kid, you’re courting death!” The young man’s face darkened as Origin Energy rose on his body, and he seemed to have transformed into flames as he whistled out.
In the sky, the energy of heaven and earth roiled to finally converge into seven ancient horned dragon silhouettes…
All of this had undoubtedly revealed the young man’s cultivation.
Fifth level of the Void Initiation Stage!
If it wasn’t for the white clothed young man that was in charge of presiding over the Dynasty Martial Competition today having not announced the beginning of the battles, the young man would have already impatiently attacked Duan Ling Tian.
At this moment, the gazes of everyone on the spectating area the group of Darkstone Empire’s members were present at looked at Duan Ling Tian…
Especially King Yong and the representative of Holdwin Empire, they even stared at Duan Ling Tian with burning gazes…
Both of them wanted to know what Duan Ling Tian’s current cultivation was as he was actually able to make Long Yun who had broken through to the seventh level of the Void Initiation Stage think so highly of him.
“Duan Ling Tian!” Long Yun stared fixedly at Duan Ling Tian as he took a deep breath and similarly anxiously wanted to know Duan Ling Tian’s current cultivation.
Besides defeating Su Li and bringing honor to his master, his goal was to defeat Duan Ling Tian and wash away the humiliation of the past.
If it was possible, he would kill Duan Ling Tian after defeating Duan Ling Tian, so as to avoid Duan Ling Tian looking for trouble with the Azure Forest Tri-Sect in the future.
Within the Azure Forest Tri-Sect, the original Sect Leader of the Demonic Lotusblade Sect was his foster father, and he owed his foster father greatly.
He didn’t want to allow his foster father to be in danger.
“I’m finally able to see you fight.” At the same time that he muttered, Su Li had an expression filled with anticipation.
The third-class spectating area in the surroundings of the Cage Battle Arena was now in an uproar. “That’s the young man that had good luck during the first round of the selections and advanced automatically.”
“This young man ought to be the youngest amongst the young geniuses of the various Empires that have arrived here today, right?”
“Exactly! He’s indeed the youngest, and he looks to be around 25 at most.”
“Which Empire is he from? Could it be that there was no one else amongst the younger generation of that Empire?”
These spectators in the third-class spectating area were unable to see the situation in the second-class spectating areas.
“Another member of the Darkstone Empire!” Some representatives of other Empires in the second-class spectating areas knew of Duan Ling Tian’s origins.
This time, the two young geniuses at the seventh level of the Void Initiation Stage or above had come from the Darkstone Empire, and it was difficult for the Darkstone Empire to not draw attention.
“Kid, if you’re sensiblem then quickly admit defeat… Otherwise, once the battle starts, I’ll tear you in two!” Duan Ling Tian’s opponent, the young man had a savage expression, and his eyes flickered with a bloody red sheen that seemed as if he was waiting for an opportunity to swallow Duan Ling Tian up.
“Tear me in two?” Duan Ling Tian smiled. “That will depend on if you have the ability.”
“You’ll see soon enough.” Although Duan Ling Tian’s composed expression causing the young man to faintly feel something was off.
But this trace of uneasiness vanished when he saw Duan Ling Tian’s young appearance.
He didn’t think that a young man that was around the age of 25 would be a match for him, a fifth level Void Initiation Stage martial artist, and his opponent was just being deliberately mystifying.
He believed that so long as he persisted to the moment that the white clothed young man announced that the battles begun, then this young man before him would surely admit defeat at the first possible moment, whereas, he would seize the opportunity within that instant to tear the young man in two!
He would do as he said.
“Begin!” After the 20 young geniuses took their places, the white clothed young man spoke out.
Instantly, many young geniuses attacked, and they chose to attack first to seize the initiative.
Amongst them included Duan Ling Tian’s opponent.
The instant the white clothed young man finished speaking, Duan Ling Tian’s opponent flashed out towards Duan Ling Tian like a hunting eagle that was capturing its prey.
In the sky, another eight ancient horned dragon silhouettes and a few thousand ancient mammoth silhouettes appeared by the side of the existing seven ancient horned dragons…
Obviously, not only was Duan Ling Tian’s opponent’s a fifth level Void Initiation Stage martial artist, he’d even comprehended fifth level Concept and possessed a grade five spirit weapon.
The young man’s right hand held tightly onto his spirit weapon claw as it tore through the sky and gave rise to a wave a light howl of the wind that were slightly ear piercing.
His figure flashed out like the wind and arrived before Duan Ling Tian in the blink of an eye.
He attacked out swiftly like a bolt of lightning, his grade five spirit weapon containing raging Origin Energy as his fifth level Concept followed his Origin Energy like a shadow and flashed out in the sky to head straight towards Duan Ling Tian’s head.
Duan Ling Tian’s expression was calm as before when faced with the full forced strike of a fifth level Void Initiation Stage martial artist.
When he saw his opponents sharp claw flashing over.
Duan Ling Tian made his move.
Sword Drawing Arts!
His opponent hadn’t arrived, yet Duan Ling Tian had already raised his hand and lightly shook his hand.
No one present clearly saw the violet colored sword light that flashed by, and it seemed to have transformed into a toxic colubridae snake that fiercely bit the young man’s neck.
Along with the sword light vanishing, the surrounding spectators weren’t even in time to react to what had happened when Duan Ling Tian had already put away the Violet Myrtle Flexible Sword in his hand and kicked out.
At the instant before the young man’s sharp claw had approached him, Duan Ling Tian’s leg had kicked onto the young man’s chest and kicked him flying.
At this moment, the young man remained unmoving and allowed Duan Ling Tian to kick him flying.
If one were to look carefully, one would be able to notice that it wasn’t that he didn’t want to move.
It was because he was already dead.
On his throat was an exceedingly tiny mark of the sword, and dazzling and resplendent fresh blood was ceaselessly spraying from there…
A fifth level Void Initiation Stage martial artist was killed by Duan Ling Tian with a single move.
“No. 32 is victorious!” The middle aged man that was in charge or recording the results was stunned for a moment before recovering from his shock and announcing the results.
“He killed a fifth level Void Initiation Stage martial artist in a single move… Is this really a young man only around the age of 25?”
The crowd that originally thought that Duan Ling Tian would surely lose were dumbstruck.
“Why does the Darkstone Empire have so many young experts?” Many Empire representatives couldn’t help but frown, as they never imagined that such strong young geniuses would appear successively from the Darkstone Empire.
As far as they were concerned, the strength of this violet clothed young man seemed to not be inferior to the other two young geniuses of the Darkstone Empire that were at the seventh level of the Void Initiation Stage or above.
“As expected!” The Holdwin Empire’s representative sighed.
Even though King Yong was mentally prepared since long ago, he was still shocked. “Duan Ling Tian is actually so strong?”
“This fellow seems to have still been holding back.” Su Li’s straight brows raised as he thought to himself.
“Duan Ling Tian…” Long Yun had a serious expression. When Duan Ling Tian attacked earlier, he wasn’t able to see it clearly, and it allowed him to realize that he was still slightly inferior to Duan Ling Tian.
This caused him to be extremely displeased!
“I wonder what the odds for my victory were?” When faced with the numerous burning gazes, Duan Ling Tian completely disregarded them as he flashed out and transformed into a violet colored bolt of lightning that flashed out.
But this time, he didn’t return to where the others from the Darkstone Empire were at, and he instead headed directly towards the first-class spectating area.
His actions caused many people to be stunned.
It doesn’t seem like everyone is able to go up there, right?
Even the white clothed young man that was in charge of presiding over the Cage Battle Arena couldn’t help but look over slightly.
When he saw Duan Ling Tian sit by the side of the three members of the Feng Clan, slight surprise suffused the white clothed young man’s face. “Someone from a tiny Empire like him actually knows Feng Wu Dao?”
“Tian Wu, how much did we win?” Duan Ling Tian sat by Feng Tian Wu’s side and asked slightly impatiently.
Feng Tian Wu was stunned, then she realized what Duan Ling Tian was speaking of, and she couldn’t help but say with a bitter smile. “Big Brother Duan, the Cage Battle Arena hasn’t started the betting yet… The betting will only start once when the third round of the selections begins.”
It only starts during the third round of the selections?
Duan Ling Tian couldn’t help but be stunned when he heard this, and they he realized that he was too impatient.
Duan Ling Tian smiled embarrassedly, and then he notified Feng Wu Dao and Elder Kong before returning to the spectating area that the others from the Darkstone Empire were seated at and sat by Su Li’s side.
“Duan Ling Tian, you know someone sitting in the first-class spectating area?” The representative of the Holdwin Empire, the old man surnamed Liu, looked at Duan Ling Tian and asked with a surprised expression.
“Kind of.” Duan Ling Tian nodded casually.
The corners of the old man’s mouth twitched. “What kind of answer is this?”
After Duan Ling Tian sat down, he could notice many gazes still lingering on him and weren’t withdrawn for a long time, and it caused him to be speechless.
Fortunately, after a short while, those gazes moved away from him successively, and it caused him to heave a sigh of relief.
The feeling of being looked at like a monkey was extremely displeasing.
Meanwhile, the other 18 young geniuses had successively decided on the victor of their battles…
The 10 people including Duan Ling Tian had become the people that were the first to advance in the second round, whereas, Gao Yu Hai who’d entered the arena with Duan Ling Tian had instead been eliminated.
Subsequently, the second round continued.
Because the people participating in the second round were only half of the people that participated in the first round of the selections, the second round finished quickly.
At the side of the Darkstone Empire, only Duan Ling Tian, Su Li, and Long Yun had advanced.
As for the Holdwin Empire, only two of them remained, and they were the two strongest sixth level Void Initiation Stage martial artists of the Holdwin Empire.
“The second round of the selections has ended. Rest for 15 minutes… After 15 minutes, the third round of the selections will continue!” The white clothed young man spoke out in a timely manner.
