Chapter 846: The Chen Clan’s Supreme Elder
Translator: KurazyTolanzuraytor Editor: JayC
“Then on what basis did Second Young Master call him trash? You admitted you were inferior to him earlier, so doesn’t that mean that you feel you’re even inferior to a piece of trash?!” The Supreme Elder was unforgiving and spoke word by word.
“Supreme Elder, I was wrong.” Chen An took a deep breath before lowering his head, and then he raised his brows as he glanced towards the violet clothed young man that was standing in confrontation with his father and a ghastly cold light flashed within his eyes.
He didn’t dare harbor a grudge towards the Supreme Elder, so he could only vent all his displeasure onto Duan Ling Tian.
“Hmph!” The Supreme Elder grunted coldly, and then he looked at the violet clothed young man in the distance with an extremely serious gaze.
“Young Brother, your strength is admirable!” Even though Chen Dong had stopped Duan Ling Tian’s attack, yet he wasn’t self-satisfied in the slightest, and he instead looked at Duan Ling Tian sincerely. “May I ask Young Brother’s great name?”
“Duan Ling Tian.” Duan Ling Tian held the Quasi Royal Grade Spirit Sword in his hand tightly as his gaze looked straight at Chen Dong, and his expression became slightly serious.
Even though Chen Dong’s Thunder Nonastrike was inferior to the extreme flashes shot out by his Nine Dragon’s Radiant Flash in terms of speed, Chen Dong’s terrifying insight was capable of stopping the extreme flashes instead.
Unknowingly, sweat flowed out from the palms of Duan Ling Tian’s hand. He hadn’t felt this sort of feeling in a long time, this type of feeling where he was uncertain if he would win or lose.
But needless to say, this sort of feeling had completely aroused the blood in Duan Ling Tian’s body that had lay silent for a long time, and then it gradually started to boil.
“Duan Ling Tian… Ling Tian, Ling Tian, soaring above the heavens, what a good name!” Chen Dong praised, and then the seven foot long spear in his hand shook as his gaze instantly became fierce. “Brother Ling Tian, let’s go at it again!”
“Alright!” Duan Ling Tian replied readily, and he clenched tightly onto the three foot long blade in his hand as he stared fixedly at Chen Dong.
A gale arose!
Chen Dong seemed to have transformed into a gust of wind to arrive before Duan Ling Tian he didn’t have the intention of moving, and the seven foot long spear shook as he flashed swiftly towards Duan Ling Tian.
Swoosh! Swoosh! Swoosh! Swoosh! Swoosh!
Even though Chen Dong appreciated Duan Ling Tian’s ability, yet the successive spear strikes of his struck out at almost the exact same instant, and they shot straight at Duan Ling Tian’s vital points, and he didn’t show the slightest bit of mercy.
Perhaps, it was because he appreciated Duan Ling Tian’s ability that he would exert his full strength.
This was a form of respect to Duan Ling Tian!
“Bring it on!” Duan Ling Tian’s gaze lit up brightly as the Quasi Royal Grade Spirit Sword in his hand struck out at almost the exact same instant, and its speed was so swift it wasn’t the slightest bit inferior to the speed Chen Dong struck out with his spear.
Sword Drawing Arts!
A simple Sword Drawing Arts was utilized by Duan Ling Tian to a perfect extent.
A single sword tore through the sky while carrying the strength of 151 ancient horned dragons, and it stopped the row of five spear strikes of Chen Dong’s and shattered them one by one.
“What a swift sword strike!” Chen Dong’s pupils constricted as his figure flashed to hurriedly flash backward.
He was able to discern that the sword skill Duan Ling Tian executed earlier was an extremely low ranked sword skill, and it was even to the extent that it possibly hadn’t even attained the Earth Rank.
But it was precisely a sword skill like this that brought forth a miraculous effect when in close combat.
Even many Heaven Rank martial skills might not be swifter than it while in close combat.
“Haha… Patriarch Chen, again!” Duan Ling Tian laughed heartily as he called out to Chen Dong, and he was once again locked in combat with Chen Dong.
Sword Drawing Arts!
Nine Dragon’s Radiant Flash!
The Quasi Royal Grade Spirit Sword in Duan Ling Tian’s hand seemed to have been given life by him, and every single time it flashed out, it seemed to be assisted by the gods as it moved to intercept the grade three spirit spear in Chen Dong’s hand successively.
Swoosh! Swoosh! Swoosh! Swoosh! Swoosh!
Chen Dong’s spear was like an enraged dragon leaving its lair, and its might was formidable when combined with the Thunder Nonastrike.
The five successive spear strikes coupled with his own formidable insight allowed Chen Dong to be in an invincible position against Duan Ling Tian.
Swish! Swish! Swish! Swish! Swish!
Duan Ling Tian’s sword struck out like a clear breeze that brushed a willow leaf, and the Nine Dragon’s Radiant Flash and Sword Drawing Arts was utilized interchangeably. Of course, if it wasn’t necessary, he wouldn’t utilize the Sword Drawing Arts.
Duan Ling Tian noticed that his comprehension towards the Nine Dragon’s Radiant Flash had gradually started to deepen without him noticing it, and he searched for a way to break through it during this fierce battle.
Duan Ling Tian relied on his sword, Chen Dong held a spear, and both of them fought for half an hour, and the eyes of the surrounding spectators were dazzled by this scene.
“Where exactly did this freak come from? He’s actually capable of fighting Patriarch Chen equally!”
“He seems to be someone the Ye Clan brought over, and he came for the sake of making the Chen Clan break off the engagement! But based on the current circumstances, he’ll probably be unable to break off the engagement.”
“The Ye Clan is doomed.”
A wave of sighing sounded out amongst the surrounding crowd of spectators.
As far as they were concerned, since the backing the Ye Clan had found was unable to do anything against the Chen Clan’s Patriarch, then let alone doing anything to the strongest in the Chen Clan, the Supreme Elder.
The Ye Clan actions of coming to break of the engagement would surely end in tragedy.
It was even to the extent that it was extremely likely the Ye Clan would welcome the flames of rage of the Chen Clan. After all, the Ye Clan had caused the Chen Clan to lose face greatly this time.
“Brother Duan…” In the distance, Ye Ting’s face was ashen as he clenched his fists tightly, and his nerves were strained as he looked at the distant violet clothed figure with a bitter smile on his face.
The wave of sighing that entered his ears caused his mind to be in turmoil.
He suddenly felt that he might have made the wrong bet!
Suddenly, a sword howl that was even more ear piercing than before interrupted Ye Ting’s thoughts and drew his gaze.
Subsequently, Ye Ting saw to his shock that when the violet clothed young man in the distance struck out once more, three material Divine Dragons whistles out. This time, the eyes of all three Divine Dragons shot out extreme flashes.
A total of six extreme flashes tore through the sky with a speed so swift that he was utterly incapable of catching sight of it.
When faced with the Nine Dragon’s Radiant Flash Duan Ling Tian executed once more, Chen Dong instantly struck out with his spear, causing five successive strikes to shoot out and shatter five of the extreme flashes.
However, he didn’t feel delighted because of this, and a wisp of a bitter smile arose on the corners of his mouth as he looked at the sixth extreme flash that shot over instantly.
“I still have to lose in the end?” At the same time that he sighed in his heart, Chen Dong felt the spear in his hand shake, and it shook his hand that held the spear to the point it split open, causing him to be unable to help but ease up his hold of his spear.
“You’ve won.” Chen Dong used his other hand to grab the spear that flew out, and he looked at Duan Ling Tian with a complicated gaze and said, “I truly never imagined that you would actually advance the stage of your martial skill while in battle.”
It was precisely because Duan Ling Tian’s martial skill had advanced by a stage and exerted six extreme flashes that caused him to lose.
This was something he knew extremely clearly in his heart.
But he was convinced of his loss!
“It was a good match.” Duan Ling Tian smiled lightly as he casually put away the Quasi Royal Grade Spirit Sword, and the 151 ancient horned dragon silhouettes in the sky above him dispersed instantly.
“The Chen Clan’s Patriarch has lost?”
“This young man actually defeated the Chen Clan’s Patriarch?”
“It seems like his martial skill broke through in battle, and that was why he was able to defeat Patriarch Chen in one go.”
No matter what, Duan Ling Tian had won, and he shocked all the surrounding spectators, including the group of elders and disciples of the Chen Clan.
“Impossible! How could my father lose to him!?” Chen An shook his head ceaselessly, and his mind was slightly dazed, as he wasn’t willing to believe that everything before his eyes was real.
In next to no time, Chen An recovered from his shock, and he seemed to have recalled something and grunted coldly. “So what if he defeated my Father? My Father’s strength is inferior to the Supreme Elder… Supreme Elder, this fellow is helping the Ye Clan to provoke our Chen Clan, so you must teach him a proper lesson!” As he finished speaking, Chen An looked at the nearby old man, the Supreme Elder of the Chen Clan, and he spoke with a flattering expression.
“Hmph!” The Chen Clan’s Supreme Elder grunted coldly, and it was unknown if he was indicating his displeasure towards Chen An, or his displeasure towards the distant Duan Ling Tian.
“The Chen Clan’s Patriarch has been defeated. So according to the agreement between Duan Ling Tian and the Chen Clan’s Patriarch, the Chen Clan’s Supreme Elder will make a move!”
“The Chen Clan’s Patriarch probably has to go ask the Supreme Elder to make a move now.”
“Even though that Duan Ling Tian had defeated the Chen Clan’s Patriarch, but he was barely able to do it… The Chen Clan’s Supreme Elder is an existence at the fifth level of the Void Interpretation Stage, and his strength far surpasses the Chen Clan’s Patriarch! It’s impossible for Duan Ling Tian to be a match for him.”
“The Ye Clan will be unable to escape calamity in the end.”
The surrounding spectators discussed animatedly.
“Brother Ling Tian, so long as you defeat my Chen Clan’s Supreme Elder, then I’ll honor my promise… But, I have to remind you that the strength of our Chen Clan’s Supreme Elder far exceeds my strength! If he exerts his full strength, then it’s sufficient to defeat me with a single move!” Chen Dong looked at Duan Ling Tian and spoke with a serious expression.
“Patriarch Chen, since I’ve since I’ve already decided to assist the Ye Clan, then I’ll naturally help them to the end… Please ask your Chen Clan’s Supreme Elder to come out.” Duan Ling Tian spoke frankly, and he stood proudly without the slightest fear.
“A newborn calf is really not afraid of a tiger!” Chen Dong shook his head and sighed, yet he didn’t say anything further, and then he turned around to look at the white haired and white browed old man that stood at the front of the group of Chen Clan members and said respectfully, “Supreme Elder, I…”
“I roughly know the sequence of events of the incident today! Since someone has come to slap the face of our Chen Clan, then our Chen Clan naturally can’t be cowards!” The old man interrupted Chen Dong before instantly vanishing on the spot, and when he appeared once more, he was already before Duan Ling Tian.
“Senior, you’re the Chen Clan’s Supreme Elder?” Duan Ling Tian’s pupils constricted slightly as he seemed to be shocked by the old man’s speed.
“Exactly!” The old man nodded.
Instantly, the surrounding crowd of spectators were surprised. “He’s the Chen Clan’s Supreme Elder? I saw him standing with the members of the Chen Clan long ago, yet I never imagined that he was the Chen Clan’s Supreme Elder.”
“With the speed Senior revealed earlier… If I’m not wrong, Senior had already broken through to the sixth level of the Void Interpretation Stage, right?” Duan Ling Tian glanced deeply at the old man and spoke frankly.
Sixth level of the Void Interpretation Stage!
As soon as Duan Ling Tian said this, the surroundings instantly went deathly silent, and the gazes of everyone descended onto the old man in unison.
“Little fellow, you have good eyesight.” The old man glanced at Duan Ling Tian with slight surprise, and his words had obviously indirectly confirmed what Duan Ling Tian said.
For a time, the surroundings were in an uproar.
“The Chen Clan’s Supreme Elder has broken through to the sixth level of the Void Interpretation Stage?”
“He really deserves his reputation as the number one expert in Driftcloud Town!”
The animated discussion of the surrounding spectators wasn’t the slightest bit stingy with words of praise.
