Chapter 935: Battle!
Translator: EndlessFantasy Translation Editor: EndlessFantasy Translation
“It’s because he’s my Big Brother Duan!” Just a short sentence from Feng Tian Wu was enough to make many of the young men from all the different forces look at Duan Ling Tian with jealousy. How they itched to be the person to take Duan Ling Tian’s place instead.
At this moment, anyone who was not blind could see Feng Tian Wu’s affection for Duan Ling Tian.
“This Duan Ling Tian has quite a luck with women,” Huang Daniu said with a look of envy on his face.
When he first saw such an exquisite beauty like Feng Tian Wu, he could not help but become immediately infatuated.
With a face that was filled with jealousy and hate, Lian Xiong gnashed his teeth as he hissed at Feng Tian Wu, “J-Junior Sister Feng, y-you’ll regret this!” Then, he turned and flew away to give chase to the severed arm that she had torn off and flung away.
“If he can find his arm and reattach it in time, there’s still a possibility of recovery.”
“When the Blade Sect’s disciple launched his attack, the Heaven and Earth Energy whirled and a total of 120 silhouettes of ancient horned dragons solidified… Although he’s strong, he still had his arm severed by this fairy-like female disciple from Blade Sect.”
“This Blade Sect’s disciple appears to be only in her early twenties… It’s terribly shocking that she possesses such a horrifying strength at such a young age.”
“She’s indeed one of God’s favorite! Not only does she has looks that could topple a country and infatuate all mortal beings, she even has such remarkable talents and comprehension that are more than enough to incite people’s jealousy!”
It did not matter if they were the disciples from Five Element Sect, Empyrean Temple or Sun Moon Sect, all of them could not help but whisper among each other.
The shock that Feng Tian Wu gave them was too earth-shattering.
Although Feng Tian Wu’s attack was very quick, it was so fast that she did not even mobilize her Heaven and Earth Energy to solidify the Heaven and Earth Phenomenon, they could clearly see that Feng Tian Wu’s strength was a lot more powerful than the Blade Sect’s disciple whose arm she severed.
“Tian Wu girl, you’ve gone too far this time.” One of the two old men who was leading Blade Sect — the skinny one— looked at Feng Tian Wu with a slight hint of censure.
As the saying went, ‘Anyone who touches the forbidden dragon’s lamella will die!’
In her world, Duan Ling Tian was her lamella.
Today, she did not kill Lian Xiong because her father, Feng Wu Dao, was a Sword Sect’s Elder in Blade Sect. She did not want to put her father in a difficult situation.
The Sect Leader of Blade Sect?
Although Duan Ling Tian did not know whether this man was the Sect Leader of Saber or Sword Sect, he must admit that his impression of him was not good.
What did he mean by ‘gone too far’?
That Blade Sect’s disciple, Lian Xiong, wanted to kill him the moment he appeared. The sword in his hand was within reach from his eyes, and it could have killed him. If it had not been for Tian Wu who reacted in time, that green-clad young man would already be a dead body by now if it was up to Duan Ling Tian.
Lian Xiong only had one of his arm severed, and that old man actually condemned Tian Wu for overdoing it?
The old man quickly shifted his gaze from Feng Tian Wu to Duan Ling Tian. His tone was extremely casual and his voice was aloof as he asked, “You’re Duan Ling Tian? The soon-to-be disciple of my Sword Sect?”
Duan Ling Tian remained calm. He looked directly into the old man’s eyes and announced in an indifferent manner, “From now on, I, Duan Ling Tian, have nothing to do at all with Blade Sect!”
The moment he heard the old man condemning Feng Tian Wu earlier, he no longer had any interest in joining Blade Sect.
“Duan Ling Tian!” Upon hearing Duan Ling Tian’s words, Sword 13 immediately became aghast.
It did not cross his mind that Duan Ling Tian would speak to the Sect Leader of Sword Sect from Blade Sect in such a manner. Moreover, the first thing that came out of his mouth was to actually cut off all ties with Blade Sect.
“Oh?” After the old man came to his senses, his face darkened immediately. He asked in a deep voice, “Do you really think that Blade Sect is somewhere you can easily enter and leave as you please?”
“To me, yes,” Duan Ling Tian replied without any hesitation. “In the beginning, I only promised senior that I’ll join Blade Sect because of my gratitude to him. As of now, I have zero interest in joining Blade Sect.”
When Duan Ling Tian reached this point in his sentence, he became too lazy to continue paying attention to the old man. Instead, he looked at Sword 13. “Senior, I’ll definitely pay my debt of gratitude to you one day. However, it’s really impossible for me to join Blade Sect.”
The old man’s attitude earlier was like a splash of cold water on Duan Ling Tian’s heart. Although there might be some other reason for his behavior — Lian Xiong’s identity and background might not be ordinary — those excuse was not enough for him.
When Sword 13 saw the determination on Duan Ling Tian’s face, he knew that the situation had been irreversibly damaged. For a moment, he did not know what to say, and he could only smile wryly.
“Alright, fine! Today, for the sake of Tian Wu this little girl, I’ll not get into a dispute with you for now!” The old man became blue in the face from the rage caused by Duan Ling Tian. When he finished his sentence, he took a deep breath before he continued again, “Since you’re unwilling to enter our Blade Sect, Blade Sect will not force you as well. From today onwards, you’re no longer the soon-to-be disciple of our Blade Sect. We have many strong young powerhouses in our sect. There’s no difference whether you’re in or not!”
As the old man reached the end of his sentence, he announced it with flagging interest. It was obvious that he thought very little of Duan Ling Tian.
“I couldn’t ask for anything better!” Duan Ling Tian nodded his head before he turned toward Lu Kai, the Sun Moon Sect’s disciple who was waiting behind him. He motioned to him and said in a deep voice, “Let’s begin.”
He had not forgotten about the bet that he had made with Chen Feng, the Sect Leader of Sun Moon Sect. This matter concerned two Ninth Level Concept Fragments so he would definitely remember it.
“Big Brother Duan, you’re…?” Feng Tian Wu swept a glance at Lu Kai. Although Lu Kai had already retracted his Origin Energy and Concept, she saw his strength when she first arrived.
Without any spirit weapon, he managed to mobilize his Heaven and Earth Energy and solidified 220 silhouettes of ancient horned dragons.
Due to this reason, Feng Tian Wu could see that Lu Kai was a Ninth Level Void Interpretation martial artist who had comprehended the Ninth Level Void Interpretation Concept.
“It’s nothing. I have a battle and bet with him. You only need to watch from the side.” Duan Ling Tian shook his head and flashed Feng Tian Wu as smile as he gave her a reassuring look.
Feng Tian Wu retreated obediently upon hearing his words.
“Duan Ling Tian, be careful!” At this time, Su Li and Zhang Shou Yong had also retreated and watched Duan Ling Tian standing in a confrontation manner across the black-clad young man.
That young man gave them a sense of danger.
As Duan Ling Tian and Lu Kai were locked in a stalemate with each other again, the Origin Energy and the Saber Concept reappeared on Lu Kai again as well.
At the same time, the monk disciples from the Empyrean Temple started to bury their heads together in heated discussions again.
From the mouth of the Empyrean Temple monk disciples, Feng Tian Wu, Su Li, Zhang Shou Yong and the rests of Blade Sect’s people quickly learned the ins and outs of the matter. A stunned expression could be seen on everyone’s faces.
“The betting wager for this battle from both sides are two Ninth Level Concept Fragments?”
“That Sun Moon Sect’s disciple, Lu Kai, is a Ninth Level Void Interpretation martial artist who has comprehended the Ninth Level Intermediate Sword Concept?”
Each and every one of the people from Blade Sect was discussing this among themselves as well. There was a hint of surprise on their faces, and they could not help but feel anticipative. They were all eager to watch Duan Ling Tian and Lu Kai’s battle.
Naturally, the majority of them felt that the odds of Lu Kai winning the battle were higher.
At this moment, a figure appeared from the distance. It was none other than Lian Xiong who went to retrieve his arm earlier.
The severed arm had already been reattached to his body, but Lian Xiong’s face was still extremely pale. It was so pale that he looked no different from a dead man.
After he came back, he turned to look at Feng Tian Wu. The depth of his eyes was extremely cold.
“Lian Xiong, let us move on from the incident when Tian Wu severed your arm earlier.” The skinny old man, who was also the Sect Leader of Sword Sect, swept a glance at Lian Xiong faintly. His tone was cold and did not contain any emotions at all.
“Sect Leader, she…” Upon hearing the old man’s words, horror dawned on Lian Xiong’s face immediately. Just as he was about to refute, he was cut off by that old man, “Didn’t you hear me clearly? Or could it be that you actually want me to repeat my words again?”
When the old man reached the end of his sentence, his voice was as cold as a thaw hole. It was so cold that Lian Xiong could not help but shiver as he glared at Feng Tian Wu unwillingly. However, he eventually had to dismiss the thoughts of revenge from his mind.
He was very clear that he could no longer take vengeance at Feng Tian Wu unless he did not want to stay in Blade Sect anymore or if this old man passed away.
Otherwise, he would be a dead man if the old man found out.
Lian Xiong took a deep breath as he shifted his gaze away and started to search for Duan Ling Tian’s silhouette.
Very soon, he noticed that Duan Ling Tian was locked in a stalemate with a black-clad young man. Moreover, that black-clad young man demonstrated a strength that was far more powerful than himself — the Ninth Level Void Interpretation and a comprehension at the Ninth Level Void Interpretation Concept.
“What’s going on?” Lian Xiong was extremely puzzled. Why would Duan Ling Tian go up against this young powerhouse?
After he had learned of the reason from the bystanders, he could not help but secretly smirk. “So it’s like this, huh? This Duan Ling Tian is seeking for his own death! Does he really think that he can win against a Ninth Level Void Interpretation martial artist who has comprehended the Ninth Level Void Interpretation Concept? How lucky that you did not by my hands!”
Lian Xiong’s cold gaze was trained on Duan Ling Tian as a sneer crept up on the corner of his mouth.
However, the sneer completely froze in place in the next moment.
What did he just witness?!
In the distance, Lu Kai, the Sun Moon Sect’s disciple finally launched his attack. The spirit saber that was as thin as a cicada’s wing in his hand trembled as all of his energy from his body rushed into the spirit saber, and he pounced at Duan Ling Tian.
More than 310 silhouettes of ancient horned dragons in the sky charged and leaped at Duan Ling Tian with their teeth and claws bared.
The saber ray that was as thin as a cicada’s wings pointed forward, and the air flow in the air was immediately sliced into two. It caused a series of screeching sound. As the screeching sound turned louder, it also became completely ear-piercing.
The slice that contained the strength of over 310 ancient horned dragons charged at Duan Ling Tian like a shadow that followed its form. It looked like it was about to slice and rip Duan Ling Tian into two.
Faced with such a deadly and fierce slice from the sword, Duan Ling Tian’s eyes shone with indifference and fearlessness. Without any warning, he took a step forward.
Under the watchful eyes of the others, Duan Ling Tian finally made his move.
His right palm formed a fist as his arm suddenly stretched backward. His wide back became as taut as a pulled bow.
All of a sudden.
Followed by a quiver on Duan Ling Tian’s strong back, his fist shot out like a cannonball and charged forward to intercept the swift saber ray.
