Chapter 545 - Duan Ling Tian’s Rage
This little gold mouse was even able to kill a second level Void Initiation Stage expert, let alone him?
Although he was a member of Prince Sheng’s Estate and had the responsibility to protect the Little Prince, he was afraid when he thought of the consequences.
He was afraid he would follow in the footsteps of the manager.
"Seven breaths of time left!" Duan Ling Tian slowly spoke out, and his voice seemed to have transformed into a voodoo talisman that caused Zhang Heng’s face to go ghastly pale.
"You, kill him, kill them!" Zhang Heng looked at the old man that was in-charge of presiding over the arena with a fierce gaze, and he shouted out with a grim voice.
The old man laughed bitterly.
Kill Duan Ling Tian?
Do I possess the strength?
When he saw Duan Ling Tian’s gaze sweep over, the old man took a deep breath before making a decision.
"From today onwards, I officially separate myself from Prince Sheng’s Estate and have become a free person." The old man spoke slowly.
As soon as he finished speaking, he transformed into a flowing light that vanished before the eyes of everyone.
This scene was unexpected by most of the people present.
The Void Initiation Stage expert of the Caged Battle Arena has fled?
There were also many people that guessed the thoughts in the old man’s heart at this moment.
They could imagine that if the old man attacked Duan Ling Tian today, then he would die for sure!
After all, even the Manager of the Caged Battle Arena, an existence at the second level of the Void Initiation Stage had died at the hands of the demon beast by Duan Ling Tian’s side…
As a first level Void Initiation Stage expert, how could he possibly be able to kill Duan Ling Tian?
Whereas once the old man were to watch idly by and allow the Little Prince, Zhang Heng, to be humiliated, he would surely have no foothold left in the Prince Sheng’s Estate.
So, he made the best choice…
To leave the Prince Sheng’s Estate.
In this way, he wouldn’t have to be stuck in between and be in a difficult spot.
The old man’s departure caused Zhang Heng’s expression to go livid.
"Three breaths of time remain." Duan Ling Tian’s icy cold and indifferent voice sounded out in a timely manner, and it caused Zhang Heng’s mind to shake greatly.
The approach of death caused him to despair.
In the face of death, he suddenly felt that pride seemed to be unimportant, and only surviving was most important.
"Duan Ling Tian, I’ll surely return the humiliation today by hundredfold and a thousand fold in the future!" Zhang Heng endlessly roared with rage in his heart.
But his body still obediently descended from the sky and knelt before Duan Ling Tian, and then he fiercely smashed his head onto the ground.
Zhang Heng gritted his teeth and completed the ten kowtows with force.
After he finished, Zhang Heng stood up before soaring into the sky, and in the blink of an eye, he’d concealed himself beyond the clouds, vanishing from sight.
He wasn’t willing to stay for a single moment.
Whereas after Zhang Heng left, the booing in the surroundings of the Caged Battle Arena rose and fell continuously without end.
"I’ve really broadened my horizons today! When faced with the threat of death, the Little Prince of Prince Sheng’s Estate had kowtowed ten times with great resolve."
"Prince Sheng’s Estate has really loss face greatly this time!"
The crowd of spectators present knew clearly that it wouldn’t be long before the incident from today would spread throughout the entire Imperial City.
"Senior Brother Zheng Song, let’s go." Duan Ling Tian smiled to Zheng Song and brought him along to leave.
This time, no one obstructed him anymore.
The group of workers in the Caged Battle Arena watched helplessly as Duan Ling Tian took Zheng Song and left, and they didn’t dare make a single sound.
What a joke!
Before Duan Ling Tian, their Caged Battle Arena’s strongest Manager and Vice Manager had either died or fled.
How would they dare offend Duan Ling Tian?
Duan Ling Tian opened the way in the front, and Zheng Song followed closely behind with an exceedingly complicated gaze.
He never imagined that not even three years had passed, yet the little fellow from all those years ago had already grown to such an extent, and Duan Ling Tian even had an extremely formidable demon beast that seemed to be at the Void Initiation Stage by his side.
"With Duan Ling Tian present, why should my Seven Star Sword Sect be worried about not rising?" Zheng Song’s eyes were filled with burning flames of hope.
Luo Zhang and Chen Shao Shuai followed at the very back, and their expressions were extremely complicated.
"Squeak squeak~" After leaving the Caged Battle Arena, the little gold mouse that was originally in high spirits suddenly lay on Duan Ling Tian’s shoulder, and she weakly sent a voice transmission. "Big Brother Ling Tian, I’m going to sleep."
"Okay, you take a rest." Duan Ling Tian replied.
He knew that executing the soul skill, Soul Shaker, and combining it with the spirit sword in her hand to kill the Manager of the Caged Battle Arena had almost completely emptied the little gold mouse’s Spiritual Force.
Earlier, she’d always been forcefully holding on.
After all, she still had to deter the old man that was in-charge of presiding over the arena.
Although the old man was inferior to the Manager of the Caged Battle Arena, but he was still a first level Void Initiation Stage expert.
The little gold mouse that was unable to execute her soul skill wasn’t a match for him.
Presently, the little gold mouse’s cultivation had improved a step further when compared to before and had broken through to the eighth level of the Void Prying Stage.
Whereas her Spiritual Force had followed her cultivation to break through to the second level of the Void Initiation Stage.
So long as a second level Void Initiation Stage expert wasn’t an Inscription Master, the expert’s mind would be affected by her soul skill, Soul Shaker.
Earlier, if the old man that presided over the arena wasn’t afraid and had directly attacked instead, it would be impossible for Little Gold to stop him.
After all, Little Gold’s Spiritual Force had already been completely used up when she executed her soul skill to deal with the Manager, and she would only be able to execute Soul Shaker once more after half a month.
If she didn’t possess her soul skill, it would be impossible for her to be a match for a Void Initiation Stage martial artist… Even if she had a grade four spirit sword.
So when he thought up to here, Duan Ling Tian felt slightly fortunate.
In next to no time, Duan Ling Tian had found an inn and let Zheng Song go wash up.
Whereas he instead sat chatting in the guest room of the inn with Luo Zhan and Chen Shao Shuai.
"Duan Ling Tian, he is…" Luo Zhan looked at Duan Ling Tian and asked curiously.
He was rather curious towards Zheng Song’s identity.
Up until now, he only knew that Zheng Song was a Seven Star Sword Sect disciple.
"He’s the son of our Seven Star Sword Sect’s Mizar Peak’s Master and has always been friends with me… That day when the Seven Star Sword Sect was annihilated, I thought that he was killed by the members of the Azure Forest Tri-Sect as well, yet I never imagined that I would meet him in the Imperial City." Cold lights flickered in Duan Ling Tian’s eyes. "Now it would seem that the members of the Azure Forest Tri-Sect have shamed him by making him be reduced to a slave!"
"The Azure Forest Tri-Sect has indeed slightly gone too far." Luo Zhan frowned. "A warrior would rather die than be humiliated! I presume Zheng Song didn’t have a good time during these two years."
"He’s already been reduced to a slave, how could he have had a good time?" Duan Ling Tian said with a low voice.
"Those fellows have indeed gone too far! Looks like I should find a time to make a declaration and completely cast of my relations to the Azure Forest Tri-Sect…" Chen Shao Shuai grunted coldly.
Although since the moment the Origin Convergence Sect joined the Azure Forest Tri-Sect, he didn’t admit that he was a disciple of the Azure Forest Tri-Sect.
But there weren’t many outsiders who knew this.
After all, he didn’t make a declaration.
"I wonder if there are any survivors amongst the remaining disciples of the Seven Star Sword Sect." Duan Ling Tian took a deep breath and his eyes emitted slight worry.
"Junior Brother Duan Ling Tian!" Before long, Zheng Song had finished washing up and came out.
He wore a mask on half of his face, and it covered his slave brand.
"Senior Brother Zheng Song, I’ll help you remove the brand on your face later…. I’m confident in making your face return to normal!" Duan Ling Tian said to Zheng Song.
Presently, he was a grade four Alchemist, and he was able to refine many healing medicinal pills that recovered injuries of the skin, and one of the grade four medicinal pills amongst them was even able to allow skin to regrow flawlessly.
"There’s no need." However, Zheng Song instead refused Duan Ling Tian’s good intentions.
"No need?" Zheng Song’s words caused Duan Ling Tian to be stunned.
Whereas Luo Zhan and Chen Shao Shuai felt that Zheng Song’s reply was inconceivable.
There was someone who like living with a slave brand?
"There’s no need for now…" Zheng Song spoke with a low voice. "I won’t touch it before the Azure Forest Tri-Sect is annihilated… It is my disgrace, my life long disgrace! I want it to always remind me to never forget to avenge the sect." Zheng Song’s tone was extremely heavy, and it caused the atmosphere in the room to become oppressive.
"I understand." Duan Ling Tian nodded, and then he said, "When the Azure Forest Tri-Sect is annihilated and the Seven Star Sword Sect is rebuilt, I’ll help Senior Brother Zheng Song remove the slave brand on your face."
"Thank you, Junior Brother Duan Ling Tian." Zheng Song nodded.
Subsequently, Duan Ling Tian introduced Luo Zhan and Chen Shao Shuai to Zheng Song.
Luo Zhan was still fine as Zheng Song greeted him in a friendly manner.
But Chen Shao Shuai.
"You’re Sword Young Master? A member of the Origin Convergence Sect?" Rage and hostility appeared on Zheng Song’s face as he looked at Chen Shao Shuai.
The Origin Convergence Sect was one of the culprits that annihilated the Seven Star Sword Sect.
"Zheng Song, after the Azure Forest Imperial Kingdom appeared, it meant the Origin Convergence Sect didn’t exist any longer, and I’m not a member of the Origin Convergence Sect any longer… As for that Azure Forest Tri-Sect, I disdain to be in their company." Chen Shao Shuai explained.
Meanwhile, Zheng Song’s expression eased up.
"Senior Brother Zheng Song, how did you survive? Exactly what happened after I was sent off that day? Why did Zhao Ming betray the sect and join the Azure Forest Tri-Sect?" Duan Ling Tian looked at Zheng Song and asked curiously.
Duan Ling Tian had too many questions in his heart towards what happened that day.
"That day, besides Zhao Ming, practically all the higher-ups of our Seven Star Sword Sect passed away, and not many Seven Star Sword Sect disciples remained. Although we survived, we were held captive by the Azure Forest Tri-Sect."
"After an unknown amount of time, we were branded with the brand of a slave and were reduced to becoming slaves before being sent to that Caged Battle Arena." When he spoke up to here, Zheng Song’s body started trembling, and his face held boundless rage. "Besides me, the other disciples that survived were all killed in the Caged Battle Arena! Only I survived with difficulty all the way."
Duan Ling Tian’s face sank, and he was enraged to the extreme. He suddenly raised his hand and shattered the table by his side.
The entire table split into pieces and bits of wood swirled in the air.
"Azure! Forest! Tri! Sect!" Duan Ling Tian gnashed his teeth as killing intent flickered in his eyes.
"Originally, after you left that day, so long as Elder Peng returned, then the experts of our Seven Star Sword Sect might not have been unable to persist until the end and have a few survivors… But because of Zhao Ming’s betrayal, it caused all our Seven Star Sword Sect experts to die not long after you left!" Zheng Song said in a low voice, "Zhao Ming first launched a sneak attack on Elder Xuan and joined forces with the members of the Azure Forest Tri-Sect to kill Elder Xuan… After that, he attacked the Sect Leader with the members of the Azure Forest Tri-Sect and killed the Sect Leader!" When he spoke up to here, Zheng Song had an expression of grief and resentment.
