Translator: KurazyTolanzuraytor Editor: Jay
Unknowingly, the Darkhan Dynasty’s Cage Battle Arena had once again appeared before Duan Ling Tian.
Compared to yesterday, the Cage Battle Arena today was much more bustling with noise and excitement.
Besides the third-class spectating area being filled with people, there were no empty seats in the second-class spectating area as well, and even half of the first-class spectating areas were filled with people.
Yet the spectating area Feng Wu Dao’s group of three sat at yesterday was completely empty.
In next to no time, Duan Ling Tian followed along with the group of Feng Clan members to descend onto the first-class spectating area.
Meanwhile, through Elder Kong’s explanation, Duan Ling Tian found out that this first-class spectating area turned out to have been prepared specially for the Feng Clan by the Imperial Family of the Darkhan Dynasty.
“Brother Ling Tian, I’m heading over first.” Zhang Shou Yong notified Duan Ling Tian before heading towards another first-class spectating area with the group of Zhang Clan members and sitting in its luxurious seats.
But half of that spectating area was already seated with people, and those people were obviously not from the Zhang Clan.
“Elder Kong, the Zhang Clan doesn’t have a first-class spectating area that belongs to them?” Duan Ling Tian asked Elder Kong curiously.
Elder Kong shook his head. “Only out Feng Clan and the Imperial Family have a first-class spectating area specially reserved for us… The higher-ups of the Zhang Clan and the other first rate powers have the qualifications to ascend the first-class spectating areas, yet they don’t have a spectating area reserved for themselves.”
Duan Ling Tian came to a sudden understanding.
“As for those figures with exceptional status in the Darkhan Dynasty, like grade four Weapons Craftsmen and grade four Alchemists, they similarly do not possess a reserved place for themselves. But so long as they’ve come over, anyone would warmly invite them to sit by their side.” Elder Kong continued.
Duan Ling Tian wasn’t surprised by this, as no matter if it was a grade four Weapons Craftsman or grade four Alchemist, they were considered as exceedingly rare existences in the territory of the Darkhan Dynasty and there usually would be many people that were requesting that they help refine a weapon or pill.
Any power would try their best to curry favor with such an existence.
“Uncle Feng, Elder Kong, Tian Wu… I’ll be going down first.” Duan Ling Tian glanced down and noticed the group of Darkstone Empire members were already sitting at the second-class spectating area they sat at yesterday, and he bid his farewells to Feng Wu Dao’s group of three.
“Mmm.” Feng Wu Dao’s group of three nodded lightly.
“Patriarch Feng, farewell.” Subsequently, Duan Ling Tian nodded to Feng Tian Nan before flashing out to leave the first-class spectating area and headed towards the second-class spectating area.
After a short moment, Duan Ling Tian descended before King Yong and the group of young geniuses from the Darkstone Empire.
“King Yong.” After Duan Ling Tian greeted King Yong, he sat down by Su Li’s side.
“Zither Young Master?” Duan Ling Tian had only just sat down when he heard an exclaim of surprise sound out by his ears.
The person who exclaimed was none other than Long Yun.
Zither Young Master?
Duan Ling Tian was stunned and glanced at Long Yun with a slightly puzzled expression.
Only now did he notice that Long Yun was staring fixedly towards high above in the distant sky at this moment, and Long Yun seemed as if he’d seem something that caused extreme astonishment in him.
Duan Ling Tian followed along Long Yun’s gaze to gaze over.
In the distance, three figures had appeared before Duan Ling Tian’s eyes.
The person in the lead was an old man.
The old man wore black clothes, his emaciated face extremely calm, and his pair of muddy eyes didn’t even have the slightest sheen.
Although this black clothed old man looked to be an ordinary old man, yet Duan Ling Tian didn’t dare underestimate him in the slightest.
A person like this was usually the most terrifying.
“Experts are numerous like the clouds in the Cage Battle Arena today, and I’m afraid there’s no lack of Inscription Masters with formidable Spiritual Forces… I can’t rashly utilize my Spiritual Force. Otherwise, I could directly use my Spiritual Force to detect this old man’s cultivation.” Duan Ling Tian was extremely confident of his own Spiritual Force.
“Long Yun isn’t looking at him.” Subsequently, Duan Ling Tian’s gaze moved slightly to the left, and it was the place Long Yun’s gaze was looking at.
A white clothed young man was followed closely by the left side behind the old man, and the young man had a chilly expression as if he was indifferent to everything in the surroundings.
“Zither… Zither Young Master?” Duan Ling Tian couldn’t help but be stunned when he saw this white clothed young man.
The Zither Young Master, Zi Shang, wasn’t a stranger to Duan Ling Tian.
A few years ago, before the Seven Star Sword Sect was annihilated, and when Duan Ling Tian was still at the Seven Star Sword Sect.
This Zither Young Master had once descended to the Seven Star Sword Sect and spoke nonsense about wanting to marry his fiancée, Ke Er, and great conflict was formed between Duan Ling Tian and Zither Young Master because of this.
He’d established the agreement of two years with Zither Young Master on the first day they’d met.
Two years later, when Duan Ling Tian and Zither Young Master faced each other, Duan Ling Tian was far inferior to Zither Young Master in terms of cultivation at the time, but because of his Spiritual Force being more formidable than Zither Young Master and his mastery of the soul skill, Thousand Illusions, he easily had Zither Young Master under his thumb.
The scenes on the Seven Star Sword Sect’s Dubhe Peak from all those years were still vivid before Duan Ling Tian’s eyes.
At that time, Zither Young Master was completely helpless before his soul skill, Thousand Illusions, and Zither Young Master had fled in a sorry state in the end.
But when he left, Zither Young Master had once said that he’d seek revenge from Duan Ling Tian in the future.
At that time, Duan Ling Tian utterly didn’t take Zither Young Master’s words seriously.
Along with the passage of time, his strength had swiftly advanced step by steps, and he’d even tossed the threats from Zither Young Master from all those years ago to the back of his head and was indifferent to it.
As far as he was concerned, with the current advancement of his cultivation, Zither Young Master had surely already been left far behind him, and was unable to be of any threat to him.
Although he still thoughts this way when he saw Zither Young Master now, he still couldn’t help but be surprised by seeing Zither Young Master here today. “Could it be that Zither Young Master has come to participate in the Dynasty Martial Competition as well?”
At the same time that Duan Ling Tian was surprised, his gaze moved up to descend onto the figure on the right of the old man.
This was a graceful figure, the owner of this figure was a drop dead gorgeous woman, and when she stood at the right side behind the old and stood side by side with Zither Young Master, they seemed like a match made in heaven.
Even though Duan Ling Tian disliked Zither Young Master’s character, but he had to admit that Zither Young Master was handsome.
“Flute Fairy? Why is she here?” This woman wasn’t a stranger to Duan Ling Tian, and she was precisely the Flute Fairy, Zi Yan, that he’d met in the Azure Forest Imperial Kingdom’s Imperial City all those years ago and was also the younger sister of Zither Young master.
“What a beautiful woman!”
“Yeah… In our Darkhan Dynasty, there ought to not be a woman that can compare to her appearance, right?”
“She’s too beautiful!”
Presently, there weren’t many people that were flying in the sky towards the Cage Battle Arena, thus because of the existence of Flute Fairy, Zi Yan, the black clothed old man’s group of three had drawn the gazes of many people.
Many people looked at Zi Yan and they weren’t stingy with their words of praise.
Of course, there were some people that didn’t agree with the words of others.
“Hmph! Who said that our Darkhan Dynasty doesn’t have a woman that can compare to her? Are all of you blind? Looks over to the first-class spectating area where the members of the Feng Clan are sitting… Lord Wu Dao’s daughter isn’t inferior to her in the slightest!” A young genius of a power in the Darkhan Dynasty grunted from the second-class spectating area.
His words instantly caused the crowd of people to be unable to refrain from looking up.
With just a glance, all of them were dumbstruck.
“That’s the daughter of Lord Wu Dao’s who has been widely spoken of in the Capital lately? So beautiful! She’s simply like a celestial maiden that has fallen down to the mortal world.”
“In terms of appearance, Lord Wu Dao’s daughter is indeed not inferior to that woman… In terms of bearing, she far exceeds that woman!”
“Of course! She’s the daughter of Lord Wu Dao.”
Instantly, the attention of most of the people in the Cage Battle Arena had turned towards Feng Tian Wu.
Duan Ling Tian heard similarly discussions as well, and he deeply agreed with this.
Feng Tian Wu and Zi Yan had different origins that were utterly not of the same level after all. So, the bearing they’d developed would naturally be quite different.
“Hmm?” In the distant sky, Zither Young Master was originally following quietly behind his master, yet suddenly, he felt a gaze lock fixedly onto him.
In a short moment, he followed the gaze to look over, and with a glance, it caused him to be unable to refrain from revealing shock.
“Saber Young Master?” As a figure that was once part of the five great young masters of the Azure Forest Imperial Kingdom, he was naturally familiar with Saber Young Master.
But to his surprise, Long Yun had actually appeared here, and he’d appeared in the second-class spectating area. “Could it be that Long Yun is participating in the Dynasty Martial Competition as well?”
For a time, Zi Shang couldn’t help but be slightly shocked.
As far as he was concerned, the reason he was able to appear here today and possessed the qualifications to participate in the competition between the various young geniuses of the Darkhan Dynasty in the Dynasty Martial Competition was basically because of his master and some fortuitous encounters he’d obtained.
Of course, at the bottom of it all, it was still the contribution of his master.
If he didn’t have his master, then it would be impossible for him to arrive at the Darkhan Dynasty and possesses a superb cultivation environment.
If he didn’t come to the Darkhan Dynasty, then he wouldn’t fortunately obtain that fortuitous encounter.
It was precisely because of this series of experiences that constructed the current him.
“Duan Ling Tian!” Suddenly, a surprised and delicate exclaim clearly entered into Zi Shang’s ears.
Zi Shang was recalled his experiences in the recent years, and when he suddenly heard his younger sister’s surprised exclaim, he was first stunned before his expression darkened.
Duan Ling Tian?
This name was naturally familiar to him.
It was even to the extent that during these past few years, he’d dreamed back to that day many times, and he wished for nothing more than to kill this person and rejoice after washing away his past humiliation.
“Yan, where’s that Duan Ling Tian?” Zi Shang suddenly turned around to look at his younger sister and asked with slight agitation.
“Over there.” Zi Yan naturally knew her older brother’s feelings, and she hurriedly signaled towards the distance.
Subsequently, Zi Shang looked over.
A violet colored figure sat nearby Long Yun… If it wasn’t for his attention being on Long Yun earlier, he’d probably have noticed Duan Ling Tian long ago.
Compared to a few years ago, although the violet clothed young man in the distance had undergone minute changes, he was still capable of recognizing the young man with a single glance.
Duan Ling Tian!
