Chapter 340 - Wu Dao’s Misgiving
Under Wu Dao’s gaze of incomparable anticipation, Duan Ling Tian slowly said, "Peak Master, the reason I’m able to overcome a stronger opponent is because my Origin Energy has undone an unusual change…"
Duan Ling Tian had only just spoken up to here when Wu Dao’s breathing became hurried.
What he wanted to know was exactly this!
Even Wu Yong Qian now had a face full of burning desire.
As far as he was concerned, if he was able to master this ability, then even if his accomplishments in the Martial Dao is limited, but he would still be able to overcome a stronger enemy.
In the future, it might not be impossible for him to become the Peak Master of the Seven Star Sword Sect’s Megrez Peak.
Under the concentrated gazes of Wu Dao and Wu Yong Qian, Duan Ling Tian continued, "My Origin Energy was originally exactly similar to ordinary martial artists. But, I made a trip to the primeval forest once I arrived at the Seven Star Sword Sect, and I was lucky to obtain a type of spirit fruit! An unknown spirit fruit."
As he spoke up to this point, Duan Ling Tian’s breathing became hurried, and he had a passionate expression. "At that time, the Origin Energy within my body underwent an unusual change after I consumed that spirit fruit, and it actually started to vibrate involuntarily… I’ve tested it before. So long as my opponent’s strength doesn’t exceed mine by the strength of 30 ancient mammoths, then I’ll be able to rely on this changed Origin Energy to defeat my opponent!"
Duan Ling Tian became excited as he spoke.
The expression of Wu Dao and Wu Yong Qian sank in tacit understanding.
A spirit fruit was able to be encountered by luck but not sought after, and the fortuitous encounter of obtaining a spirit fruit was practically impossible to be replicated.
Wu Dao’s fierce gaze seemed as if able to penetrate everything as he stared fixedly at Duan Ling Tian, as if he wanted to perceive if Duan Ling Tian was lying through the changes in Duan Ling Tian’s expression…
However, regardless of how he observed Duan Ling Tian, the changes in Duan Ling Tian’s expression didn’t have the slightest unnaturalness.
Could it be that what Duan Ling Tian said is true?
It’s really because he consumed an unknown spirit fruit that his Origin Energy was able to undergo a change?
"At that time after my Origin Energy changed, I just happened to encounter the provocation of Huo Xin and Yuan Wu. So, I relied on my Origin Energy that had changed to kill them with a single move on the Megrez Peak’s life and death arena! After that, the Phecda Peak’s sixth level Origin Core Stage outer court disciple, Shao Ying, and the number one disciple in the outer court, Shi Hao; I relied on my changed Origin Energy to overcome them who were stronger than me, and kill them!"
Duan Ling Tian seemed as if he didn’t notice Wu Dao’s burning gaze, and he spoke in his ‘excitement,’ with an emotional expression.
Wu Yong Qian’s gaze descended onto Duan Ling Tian, and it was filled with envy.
Finally, the emotional expression on Duan Ling Tian’s face eased up, then Duan Ling Tian took a deep breath and looked at Wu Dao. "Peak Master, now that I’ve told everything to you, and shared everything with you… are you satisfied? Can I leave?"
Regardless of how the Duan Ling Tian’s expression changed earlier, but he was terrifyingly calm in his heart…
All he said was only for the sake of humoring Wu Dao!
As for whether Wu Dao believe it or not wasn’t something he needed to worry about.
At practically the instant Duan Ling Tian finished speaking, a formidable imposing manner suddenly extended out from Wu Dao’s body to envelop Duan Ling Tian.
Duan Ling Tian stood on the spot and remained unfazed, as if he completely didn’t notice Wu Dao’s imposing manner, and he had a carefree expression that wouldn’t change even if Mount Tai were to collapse.
"Duan Ling Tian!" Suddenly, Wu Dao shouted out explosively with a voice that contained extremely terrifying Origin Energy that pierced straight into Duan Ling Tian’s ear drums, shaking Duan Ling Tian to the point his lifeblood roiled and his face flushed slightly red.
"My patience is limited! I’ll give you one last chance to tell the truth… Otherwise, don’t blame me for making you stay here forever! You ought to know that I have this this ability." Wu Dao slowly said with a voice that had an intent to threaten mixed within.
Completely shedding all pretenses!
Just for the sake of obtaining Duan Ling Tian’s Origin Energy utilization method.
Duan Ling Tian looked at Wu Dao and spoke neither humbly nor arrogantly. "Peak Master, I’ve clearly told you of everything you wanted to know… I wonder what you mean by this now? You think I’m deceiving you?"
"Hmph!" Wu Dao’s gloomy face seemed to be covered in a layer of ice that revealed dense cold intentions, and his gaze that flashed with killing intent descended onto Duan Ling Tian. "Duan Ling Tian, do you think I’d believe what you said? I’m the Peak Master of the Seven Star Sword Sect’s Megrez Peak, I’ve read ancient books from all over but have never heard of any spirit fruit that can allow the Origin Energy to undergo an unusual change!"
"You actually dare talk nonsense before me? Do you think I’m unable to see through your lies?" As he finished speaking, the aura on Wu Dao’s body gradually went gloomy.
Slight Origin Energy had already started to burst forth from Wu Dao’s hands and were getting denser by the moment…
Above Wu Dao, ancient mammoth silhouettes were gradually condensing into form one by one, and they grew more and more as time passed by.
In the blink of an eye, there were already a few thousand ancient mammoths!
"Haha…" Duan Ling Tian burst out in laughing in an unrestrained manner when he heard Wu Dao.
"Presumptuous!" Wu Yong Qian’s face sank. This Duan Ling Tian actually dared be so presumptuous before his foster father, the Peak Master of Megrez Peak, this truly deserved death!
But, he knew his own limitation. He wasn’t a match for Duan Ling Tian.
Otherwise, he would surely make a move to teach Duan Ling Tian a lesson.
"What are you laughing about?" Wu Dao had a gloomy expression as he said in a deep voice.
"What am I laughing about?" Finally, Duan Ling Tian restrained his laughter and sized Wu Dao up before slowly saying, "Peak Master, it’s not that I’m looking down upon you… But with the great size of Cloud Continent, you dare say you know everything? Read ancient books from all over? I wonder what ancient books have you read all over, Peak Master?
"Cloud Continent is vast and boundless. Even the Martial Emperor Stage experts of legend didn’t dare say they knew everything… Could it be that Peak Master’s knowledge even surpasses that of Martial Emperor Stage experts?" As he finished speaking, a slight ridiculing smile appeared on the corners of Duan Ling Tian’s mouth.
Even the Rebirth Martial Emperor of all those years ago that had experienced two lifetimes didn’t dare say that he knew everything.
This Peak Master of Megrez Peak, a high up of a tiny little sect in a tiny little imperial kingdom dares boast like this?
Truly naïve, truly laughable!
"You!!" Even though what Duan Ling Tian said was logical, it was undoubtedly undisguised slapping of Wu Dao’s face. This caused Wu Dao to burst into a rage, and the Origin Energy on his body rages and was restless. "Duan Ling Tian, do you know… that just by what you said now, I can directly kill you right now!"
"Haha…" Duan Ling Tian still had a carefree expression when faced with the enraged Wu Dao. "Peak Master, your strength is shocking. But if you kill me today, then I wonder how the disciples of Megrez Peak will think of it? How the disciples of the Seven Star Sword Sect will think of it, and how the other Peak Masters, Sect leader, and Guardian Elders would think of it!?"
"Hmph! Even if I kill you today, who would know that it’s I who killed you?" Wu Dao snorted coldly with a disdainful expression.
Duan Ling Tian’s tone was calm as he said indifferently, "Peak Master, I’m afraid I have to disappoint you… Before I came here, many Megrez Peak disciples knew of the incident where I crippled an arm of your foster son, moreover, they know that your foster son took me to go see you."
"Hmm?" Wu Dao’s face sank when he heard Duan Ling Tian, and he frowned as he looked at Wu Yong Qian who was beside him.
Wu Yong Qian smiled bitterly as he nodded, proving that what Duan Ling Tian said wasn’t a lie.
"Trash!" Wu Dao coldly swept Wu Yong Qian with his gaze, and his face was terrifyingly gloomy.
If it really was like this, then he really didn’t dare kill Duan Ling Tian.
If this matter were to spread, the Sect Leader would surely interfere.
With the natural talent that Duan Ling Tian had currently revealed, practically everyone within the Seven Star Sword Sect would take Duan Ling Tian as the hope of the sect…
Even the Sect Leader had perhaps already started paying attention to Duan Ling Tian.
"Duan Ling Tian!" Wu Dao looked at Duan Ling Tian and said in a deep voice, "Needless to say, you’re extremely intelligent, truly intelligent… You actually know to create the right conditions for yourself to make me hesitate to take action against you due to fearing the consequences!"
"Peak Master, you’re too kind." Duan Ling Tian lightly smiled, and he experienced a burst of delight in his heart when he saw Wu Dao’s unsightly expression.
Wu Dao continued. "However, even if I’m unable to kill you, I presume teaching you a lesson is understandable!"
The smile on Duan Ling Tian’s face remained unchanged as he glanced deeply at Wu Dao, as if victory was within his grasp.
He knew clearly in his heart that everything Wu Dao did earlier was undoubtedly to probe and threaten him.
Even Wu Dao himself didn’t dare fully confirm that what Duan Ling Tian said earlier were lies.
"Hmph! So long as you speak, I’ll let you leave safely… After today, I won’t make things difficult for you anymore." As expected, after Wu Dao heard what Duan Ling Tian said, he was moved.
What Duan Ling Tian wanted was precisely the first half of what Wu Dao said, as for the 2nd half, he’d completely disregarded it.
Could he trust in Wu Dao’s promise?
"It’s a spirit fruit that’s fully dark violet in color, and there are some small lumps on its surface…" Duan Ling Tian slowly described the spirit fruit.
Of course, the spirit fruit he was currently describing wasn’t a spirit fruit that was beneficial to a martial artists, instead it was an extremely poisonous spirit fruit that killed without the slightest inkling.
This type of spirit fruit was extremely rare, and it was always loved by demon beasts with extremely formidable toxicity.
Moreover, unless it was someone who recognized this spirit fruit, it would be absolutely impossible to know that it secretly contained toxic poison.
This was because the toxic poison within the spirit fruit was extremely rare and even a silver needle wasn’t able to detect it.
Many people had seen this type of spirit fruit, but it was extremely rare for someone to still be living after having seen it. Whereas the Rebirth Martial Emperor was precisely one of these survivors.
Now, Duan Ling Tian’s intention was to casually cook up a wild tale, because as far as he was concerned, it was highly unlikely that this type of spirit fruit existed in the Azure Forest Imperial Kingdom…
He was only giving Wu Dao a dream.
A dream that was impossible to realize.
"You can go!" After obtaining the information he sought, Wu Dao swept Duan Ling Tian with a cold and indifferent gaze.
"Peak Master, I’ll be taking my leave." Duan Ling Tian nodded and took his leave.
"Foster Father, you believe what he said earlier?" After Duan Ling Tian left, Wu Yong Qian looked at Wu Dao and his brows knit together. "I keep having the feeling that what this Duan Ling Tian says can’t be trusted!"
"Hmph!" Wu Dao swept Wu Yong Qian with a cold and indifferent gaze. "Could it be that I’m unable to perceive it, and I need you to teach me? Useless thing! I asked you to go call him here, but you made it so that everyone knew. Allowing him to have nothing to fear because of the conditions he created before coming here and holding the advantage."
Wu Yong Qian lowered his head, his body started to lightly trembled and his eyes turned crimson red. "Duan Ling Tian!"
"I’ll make a trip to the primeval forest." Wu Dao swept Wu Yong Qian with a gaze full of resentment towards Wu Yong Qian’s failure, then he directly left.
