Chapter 334 - Foresight
"Just watch." The smile on Duan Ling Tian’s face still remained, as if he was extremely confident of Zuo Qing.
"Hmm?" He Dong frowned.
Needless to say, he was filled with bewilderment towards Duan Ling Tian’s current attitude.
Although he didn’t mix together with Duan Ling Tian much, but he was able to perceive that Duan Ling Tian wasn’t the type of person to talk nonsense…
Now, Duan Ling Tian was so confident of Zuo Qing, could it be that he knew something?
But, he was unwilling to believe no matter what that Zuo Qing who was at the seventh level of the Origin Core Stage would be able to persist for 10 breaths when facing the ninth level Origin Core Stage Violent Ape.
Even if it was him, if he hadn’t broken through to the eighth level of the Origin Core Stage, he wouldn’t have even a shred of confidence.
"Hmph! Some people boast too much that even the people beside them don’t believe them… Laughable!" A mocking voice that was incomparably ear piercing abruptly sounded out.
Duan Ling Tian’s face sank when he heard this voice, then he turned around and looked at the owner of the voice with a cold and indifferent gaze.
It was precisely Hu Xue Feng who stood at the other side of the Test Elder.
"What? Am I wrong?" The corners of Hu Xue Feng’s mouth curled into a ridiculing smile when he saw Duan Ling Tian look over. "Getting angry from embarrassment?"
Duan Ling Tian glanced at Hu Xue Feng as if glancing at an idiot, then he sneered. "Hu Xue Feng, you said I boaster… Then how about we make a bet? On whether Senior Sister Zuo Qing is able to persist for ten breaths while facing the Violent Ape to pass the inner court disciple test and become an inner court disciple..."
"Then you, Hu Xue Feng, will ascend the life and death arena to battle me until the death of one of us! Do you dare?!"
Duan Ling Tian once again spread word of inviting Hu Xue Feng to battle on the life and death arena.
Do you dare?!
The loud and clear question that was exactly similar to before descended into Hu Xue Feng’s ears, causing his face to be change between a pale and livid expression.
He was once again hesitant in his heart when he saw the confidence on Duan Ling Tian’s face.
He didn’t dare agree.
Including Test Elder, Jiang Huai, all the other eight inner court disciples all looked at Duan Ling Tian in surprise, and at the same time they looked at Hu Xue Feng.
He didn’t know of the conflict between Duan Ling Tian and Hu Xue Feng on the Test Platform before they had arrived.
"If you dare ascend the life and death arena to battle me, I’ll still do as I said before and suppress my strength to the sixth level of the Origin Core Stage to battle you… Do you, Hu Xue Feng, dare battle me?" Duan Ling Tian’s gaze gradually became icy cold, as if transforming into icicles that pierced towards Hu Xue Feng.
Hu Xue Feng’s face was extremely livid.
But he just didn’t dare to agree to the battle!
Duan Ling Tian’s confidence once again caused him to not be confident in his heart.
"Suppress his strength to the sixth level of the Origin Core Stage?" The pupils of Jian Huai and the eight inner court disciples couldn’t help but constrict when they heard Duan Ling Tian, and they were all startled.
As far as they were concerned, Duan Ling Tian was simply courting death.
Hu Xue Wang was the Personal Disciple of the Merak Peak’s Master. They had heard of the news that he’d broken through to the eighth level of the Origin Core Stage half a month ago.
As far as they were concerned, even if Duan Ling Tian’s ability was any more strange and heaven defying, but it was still impossible to use a cultivation at the sixth level of the Origin Core Stage to kill a genuine eighth level Origin Core Stage martial artist…
Right when they though Hu Xue Feng would agree to the battle, they instead noticed Hu Xue Feng had an unsightly expression, and he didn’t dare make a sound even after a long time.
Hu Xue Feng didn’t dare agree to the battle?
For a moment, they were all stunned, and their gazes they shot at Hu Xue Feng changed.
An eighth level Origin Core Stage martial artist didn’t even dare accept the challenge of a sixth level Origin Core Stage martial artist?
Hu Xue Feng naturally noticed the gazes of disdain from Jiang Huai and the eight inner court disciples, and this caused his expression to become even more unsightly and even more livid…
"Pfft!" Duan Ling Tian naturally knew that Hu Xue Feng was frightened when he saw Hu Xue Feng’s appearance, and Duan Ling Tian couldn’t refrain from laughing in ridicule. "I really don’t know why the Peak Master of Merak Peak would take such a coward like you to be his Personal Disciple… You’ve really thrown all of the face of the Merak Peak’s Master, and even the face of the Merak Peak itself!"
Meanwhile, many people thought that Hu Xue Feng would explode out in rage because of what Duan Ling Tian said…
In next to no time, they were disappointed.
Hu Xue Feng stood there with his head lowered and his body trembled. He was enraged to the utmost limit but just didn’t dare vent it out.
"Hu Xue Feng, the Personal Disciple of the Merak Peak’s Master is merely so-so."
"I heard that the Merak Peak’s Peak Master took his as a Personal Disciple because of his clan… The Hu Clan is a great clan of our Azure Forest Imperial Kingdom."
"So it turns out that he’s from the Imperial City’s Hu Clan! Looks like he relied on relationships to obtain his current position."
"Truly laughable! Senior Brother Duan Ling Tian want’s to suppress his cultivation at the sixth level of the Origin Core Stage to battle him, but he, an eight level Origin Core Stage martial artist actually is afraid."
The outer court disciples all whispered in discussion.
Even though their voices weren’t loud, but practically all the people on the Test Platform were existences at the seventh level of the Origin Core Stage or above, which of them weren’t people with shocking listening ability?
They naturally heard it.
"Duan Ling Tian!" Hu Xue Feng’s head was lowered as crimson red color appeared in his eyes and blood threads covered his eyes. His eyeballs seemed as if they would split open at any moment.
Duan Ling Tian glanced at Hu Xue Feng in disdain, then withdrew his gaze and shot it at the faraway Zuo Qing.
Because of the small disturbance earlier, the inner court disciple test was temporarily stopped…
Now, it continued.
"Duan Ling Tian, you’re too ruthless. But, this Hu Xue Feng’s background isn’t simple, and you need to be more careful when you do things." He Dong condensed his Origin Energy into sound and sent it into Duan Ling Tian’s ears.
Duan Ling Tian shrugged and smiled lightly with a face full of indifference, then his gaze descended onto Zuo Qing who had walked into the cage and faced the Violent Ape.
Suddenly, Zuo Qing move, as if transformed into a bolt of lightning that flashed towards the Violent Ape.
"Roar!" The Violent Ape roared in rage when it saw Zuo Qing’s actions. As a fierce beast, it completely didn’t know how to be tender towards woman, and its strong arms spread out, as if transforming into a heavy bow before pouncing on Zuo Qing.
Zuo Qing’s figure flashed out!
Right when everyone thought that she would dodge the Violent Ape’s attack, her figure abruptly dropped down.
"What does Zuo Qing want to do?" This was the question within the hearts of most of the people that were present.
"Roar~" The Violent Ape’s enraged roar sounded out once again, and within the enraged roar this time was a sense of pain mixed within.
Everyone’s vision blurred, and they noticed that after Zuo Qing descended on the ground, she once again leapt up to dodge the arms of the Violent Ape that whistled out towards her before firmly descending onto the shoulder of the Violent Ape.
A time of one breath had passed.
"Oh my god! Zuo Qing stepped onto the Violent Ape’s legs to leap up?"
"It seems so."
"Zuo Qing is simple courting death, doing this will only enrage the Violent Ape!"
Most of the outer court disciples didn’t look favorably on Zuo Qing.
"Duan Ling Tian, what’s Zuo Qing doing?" He Dong frowned when he saw Zuo Qing’s gentle and graceful figure firmly descend on the Violent Ape’s wide shoulders, and he had a puzzled expression.
"Continue watch and you’ll know." Duan Ling Tian light smiled with a carefree expression.
Within the cage, Zuo Qing stepped onto the Violent Ape’s shoulder to gain momentum, then her leg shot out to fiercely flash towards the Violent Ape’s neck.
Although the Violent Ape’s strength was strong and had a swift speed, but it required to go through a reflexive process. Now, it was unable to avoid Zuo Qing’s kick and suffered it head on.
"Auwu!" The Violent Ape was in pain and it roared in grief, its crimson red eyes seemed to have a burning flame of rage lit ablaze within it, and it raised its arms, wanting stretch its hand backwards to grab Zuo Qing.
Zuo Qing seemed as if she knew beforehand that the Violent Ape would move in this way, and had stepped on the Violent Ape’s shoulder to leap up before it, barely avoiding the arms that the Violent Ape swung out.
"This…" In the eyes of the others, the Violent Ape was cooperating with Zuo Qing’s leap, then swung out its arm to sweep over after her, thus hitting nothing.
The time of two breaths passed.
"Roar!" The Violent Ape seemed to have realized that it must occupy the initiative, and its enormous figure shook, wanting to dash to the other side of the cage to pull apart the distance between it and Zuo Qing.
A scene that caused everyone to be dumbstruck appeared once again.
The direction that the Violent Ape rushed towards was precisely the direction Zuo Qing descended towards after leaping off the Violent Ape.
Zuo Qing had once again firmly descended onto the Violent Ape’s body.
A kick that was suffused with raging Origin Energy once again descended onto the Violent Ape’s neck, causing the Violent Ape’s head to vibrate and emit an extremely grievous howl.
The time of three breaths had passed.
Seeing Zuo Qing seeming to have foresight, and time and time again she occupied the initiative of the battle as she avoided the furious attacks of the Violent Ape…
Besides Duan Ling Tian, everyone present was dumbstruck.
Including the inner court disciple within the cage.
"Ten breaths have passed." The inner court disciple only recovered from his shock when Duan Ling Tian condensed his Origin Energy into sound and pierced it into the inner court disciple’s ears, then the inner court disciple’s figure moved to stop the Violent Ape. "Zuo Qing persisted for more than ten breaths of time, and she had passed the inner court disciple test!"
"Yeah!" Zuo Qing’s figure descended, her beautiful face flushed rosy, and she walked in graceful steps to leave the cage.
"Zuo Qing has passed the inner court disciple test to become an inner court disciple!" Meanwhile, the Test Elder’s voice sounded out at the right moment.
Causing everyone that was dazed to recover from their shock.
"Oh my god! Unbelievable!"
"Truly inconceivable… Senior Sister Zuo Qing actually passed the test like this."
"Why do I feel as if that Violent Ape is intentionally letting her have her way?"
"I have this feeling too."
"Hmph! Could it be that all of you didn’t see that Violent Ape staring at Senior Sister Zuo Qing like it’s gone insane? Obviously, everything from earlier caused it to be extremely aggrieved."
All the outer court disciples discussed.
Before long, everyone noticed that the Violent Ape that was subdued by the inner court disciple and stood inside the cage, now looked at Zuo Qing’s figure as it madly roared in rage. Its arms swung out swiftly like the wind as his fiercely thumped its own chest.
As if venting the rage in its heart to its heart’s content.
It had lost control of its mood!
"F**k! This Violent Ape has gone mad! I wonder who is the misfortunate soul next that has to go battle this Violent Ape." The gaze of one of the outer court disciple descended on some of the outer court disciples that hadn’t participated in the test yet.
"This will depend on who the Test Elder calls." The gazes of all the disciples descended onto Jiang Huai.
The expressions of some of the outer court disciples that hadn’t participated in the test now flickered between a pale and a livid expression, their legs shivered, and they ceaselessly begged in their minds, begging the Test Elder not to call on them no matter what.
