Chapter 550 - Going Up Against Sun Rui
Duan Ling Tian had only just finished speaking when Sun Rui’s face went gloomy.
Chai Jin’s face went gloomy as well, and he said angrily, "Duan Ling Tian, my Senior Brother spared your life that day, but not only do you not try to repay his kindness, you return kindness with hatred!"
"Spared my life? Return kindness with hatred?" Chai Jin’s words caused Duan Ling Tian to be unable to help himself from being stunned, and he couldn’t help but start laughing.
The surrounding crowd of spectators shot their gazes at Chai Jin, and it was as if they were looking at an idiot.
Duan Ling Tian had clearly spoke of the matter between himself and Sun Rui earlier.
It was obviously Sun Rui who’d relied on his formidable strength to use his power to bully Duan Ling Tian, and after he humiliated Duan Ling Tian many times, he disdained to kill Duan Ling Tian…
What did this have to do with returning kindness with hatred?
"Chai Jin!" Duan Ling Tian’s fierce gaze stared at Chia Jin as he said with a cold voice. "Then I’ll break off your limbs for no reason now, and leave you with your life… When you’re lying on the bed in the future, would you also be grateful to me, then thank me for showing mercy today and sparing your life?" Duan Ling Tian asked word by word.
Chai Jin instantly felt suffocated, and his face flushed red when he heard this, yet he was at a loss for what to say.
If something like that really happened, would he be grateful to Duan Ling Tian?
He would only hate Duan Ling Tian to the bone.
When he saw Chai Jin shut up, Duan Ling Tian’s gaze that was covered in killing intent once again descended onto Sun Rui, and it was filled with viciousness.
"Duan Ling Tian!" Finally, the black clothed old man by Sun Rui’s side, the Supreme Elder of the Black Fiend Sect, Qiu Cheng, spoke out. "The incident from all those years is because of the failure of mine as a teacher… I hope that you can give me face and spare my good for nothing disciple."
Due to the fear of the network of relationships Duan Ling Tian possessed, and for fear of the terrifying strength of the little gold mouse by Duan Ling Tian’s side, Qiu Cheng had admitted his mistakes.
Right when everyone was curious if Duan Ling Tian would give Qiu Cheng face.
"Give you face?" Duan Ling Tian sized Qiu Cheng up, and under the gazes of anticipation from the surrounding crowd of spectators, he said slowly, "Do I know you? Why should I gave you face? Who do you think you are?!"
Duan Ling Tian’s words caused the surrounding crowd of spectators to be stunned.
These words are too vicious, right?
"You…You!!" Whereas Qiu Cheng was instead to the point his face flushed red, and his eyes almost stared out of his sockets as his body trembled.
As the Supreme Elder of the Black Fiend Sect, an existence at the second level of the Void Initiation Stage.
When had he ever been humiliated like this?
"Duan Ling Tian, you dare humiliate my Master!?" Chai Jin was an impetuous young man after all, and his figure flashed out to pounce towards Duan Ling Tian.
"F**k off!" But, he hadn’t even gotten close to Duan Ling Tian when he was kicked flying by Luo Zhan and crashed onto the ground.
"You dare touch my disciple?" Qiu Cheng’s face went grim, and his fierce eyes that shot at Luo Zhan was covered in killing intent.
The imposing manner of a Void Initiation Stage expert swept out to press onto Luo Zhan’s body, causing Luo Zhan’s face to go grim.
Right at this moment, so long as they knew Luo Zhan, the surrounding spectators looked at Qiu Cheng as if they were looking at an idiot.
They knew that Qiu Cheng was about to suffer.
Was Crazy Young Master, Luo Zhan, someone he could bully?
Right at this moment, a cold grunt that was ear deafening sounded out abruptly, and it shook most of the people present to the point their vital energy and blood roiled.
"You dare touch my grandson?" Subsequently, most of the people present felt a strong wind blow by, blowing to the point their faces ached.
Accompanying an enormous bang, the Black Fiend Sect’s Supreme Elder, Qiu Cheng, who was still using his imposing manner to bully others a moment ago, flew out like an arrow that had left the bow and fiercely collided onto a nearby stone stele.
The stone stele broke into pieces, and it was on the verge of collapse.
Whereas Qiu Cheng’s face was pale like a sheet as he successively spat out a few mouthfuls of blood.
After he consumed a healing medicinal pill, he was barely able to stand up.
But his body that stood up was still shaky and unsteady.
His gaze descended onto the old man in the distance that had attacked him, and there was slight terror in his eyes. "You… Who are you?"
"You’re not worthy to know my name!" The old man glanced at Qiu Cheng in disdain, then turned around and returned to Luo Zhan’s side.
"Luo Rong, you’ve come as well?" Right at this moment, Chi Ming who stood in the sky, seemed as if he’d discovered a new continent, and he descended at the side of the old man.
As soon as Chi Ming spoke, it cause Qiu Cheng to be completely dumbstruck.
"Luo Rong? The Guild Master of the Azure Forest Imperial Kingdom’s Weapons Craftsmen Guild’s Main Guild?" Qiu Cheng was greatly shocked in his heart.
Subsequently, his gaze descended onto Luo Zhan. "That young man is the top ranked figure amongst the five great young masters of the Azure Forest Imperial Kingdom, Crazy Young Master?" Qiu Cheng’s face was covered in a bitter expression.
If he knew that this was the Crazy Young Master, Luo Zhan, then no matter how brave he was, he wouldn’t dare use his imposing manner to bully Luo Zhan.
"The members of the Black Fiend Sect are truly formidable!"
"Yea, like Master like disciple… I can be considered to have comprehended the essence of these words."
"The elder offended Duan Ling Tian, the young offended Crazy Young Master, and the old is even more formidable… He directly offended Guild Master Luo."
"Guild Master Luo is an existence at the sixth level of the Void Initiation Stage… Supposedly, in terms of strength, he even isn’t inferior to any one of the five great Revered Elders of the Imperial Family."
The crowd of surrounding spectators sighed with emotion.
When the three people from the Black Fiend Sect heard this, it caused their expressions to go unsightly.
Especially Chia Jing and Qiu Cheng who were already injured, they were even angered to the point they spat out a mouthful of blood.
"Duan Ling Tian!" When he saw his Master being injured, Sun Rui knew that there was nothing his side could do about the situation now.
He looked at Duan Ling Tian and said with a cold voice, "You’ve said repeatedly that you want to kill me, you want to trample on me under your feet, and you want to make me your stepping stone… Do you dare to battle me without drawing on the assistance from the strength of others and prove that you’re able to trample on me beneath your feet?"
"If you don’t dare… Then you’re still the ant from all those years ago to me!" Sun Rui’s words were filled with ridicule.
At this moment, all the people present were able to perceive that Sun Rui was prodding Duan Ling Tian into action by means of ridicule.
He wanted to enrage Duan Ling Tian, cause Duan Ling Tian to become rash and really intend to fight him by all alone.
For a time, the gazes of everyone present descended onto Duan Ling Tian.
Duan Ling Tian started laughing. "Sun Rui, do you think that I don’t dare fight you by myself?"
"Hmph!" Sun Rui grunted coldly. "Could it be that you dare?’
"Since you want me to personally fight you, then I’ll fulfil your wish… Little Gold, go to Luo Zhan." Duan Ling Tian had a carefree expression.
Sun Rui was wildly delighted when he heard Duan Ling Tian agree.
As far as he was concerned, the reason Duan Ling Tian agreed was because Duan Ling Tian didn’t know of his cultivation.
Otherwise, it was impossible that Duan Ling Tian would agree.
He was an existence at the sixth level of the Void Prying Stage!
When they saw Duan Ling Tian falling to Sun Rui’s prodding, many people shook their heads and sighed.
"Duan Ling Tian is too rash! Since Sun Rui dares to challenge him, Sun Rui naturally knows of Duan Ling Tian’s strength."
"Exactly. Sun Rui knows of Duan Ling Tian’s strength, whereas Duan Ling Tian doesn’t know anything about Sun Rui’s strength… Duan Ling Tian is probably going to take beating in this battle."
"Sun Rui is surely confident, and that’s why he prodded Duan Ling Tian into fighting him.
The surrounding crowd whispered in discussion.
Many people shook their heads as they sighed, and they felt that Duan Ling Tian was too rash.
"Duan Ling Tian!" Meanwhile, numerous voice transmission that were filled with concern entered into Duan Ling Tian’s ears.
Most of them were persuading Duan Ling Tian, and the owners of these voice transmissions were respectively from Luo Rong, Luo Zhan, Chi Ming, and Chen Shao Shuai…
As for the content of the voice transmissions, it was none other than saying that he didn’t know Sun Rui’s cultivation, whereas Sun Rui knew his cultivation, and he was at a disadvantage.
Duan Ling Tian snickered in his heart towards this.
He didn’t know Sun Rui’s cultivation?
When he glanced at Sun Rui the first time outside the Imperial Palace, he’d relied on his acute Spiritual Force and the lifetime worth of experience of the Rebirth Martial Emperor to confirm Sun Rui’s cultivation.
Sun Rui was at the sixth level of the Void Prying Stage!
Besides that, because Sun Rui didn’t notice in the slightest that he’d used his Spiritual Force to detect Sun Rui’s cultivation.
Duan Ling Tian could conclude that Sun Rui wasn’t an Inscription Master.
"Courting death!" When there were worried about Duan Ling Tian, there naturally were people that wished for nothing more than for Duan Ling Tian to be killed by Sun Rui.
Like Prince Sheng and his son, Zhang Heng.
Now their gazes contained pleasure towards Duan Ling Tian’s misfortune mixed within.
"Senior Brother, Duan Ling Tian had once humiliated me many times… Since he’s conceited to the point of daring to battle you by himself this time, you must avenge me!" After Chai Jin consumed a healing medicinal pill, he hurriedly supported his master, Qiu Cheng, and at the same time, he sent a voice transmission to Sun Rui.
"Don’t worry Junior Brother, I’ll surely make Duan Ling Tian die a graveless death! Not only can I take revenge for you, I can also get rid of a great calamity!" Sun Rui looked at Duan Ling Tian with eyes that were filled with insane killing intent.
Duan Ling Tian’s natural talent caused him to feel terrified.
That weak youth from eight years ago had already possessed a cultivation that was catching up to him eight years later.
Now, he felt slightly fortunate.
Fortunate that he’d encountered Duan Ling Tian now.
Otherwise, if another few years passed, it would be impossible for him to be a match for Duan Ling Tian.
No one had imagined that the genius competition held by the Imperial Family hadn’t even started, yet there would be such a brilliant battle on the drill grounds.
Duan Ling Tian vs Sun Rui.
One was a peerless genius who had become famous in the Azure Forest Imperial Kingdom in the recent years.
The other was an elder of the Black Fiend Sect.
In next to no time, the surrounding crowd of spectators either retreated back or soared into the sky, and they looked from afar at Duan Ling Tian and Sun Rui who stood in confrontation.
"This fellow Duan Ling Tian actually disregarded me." Luo Zhan frowned.
Earlier, he’d sent a voice transmission to persuade Duan Ling Tian, and it was directly disregarded by Duan Ling Tian.
"I hope this fellow is really able to defeat Sun Rui…" Luo Zhan thought to himself.
"Squeak squeak~" The little gold mouse stood on Luo Zhan’s shoulder, and her pair of jade green eyes looked excitedly at Duan Ling Tian.
"Big Brother Ling Tian, kill him, kill him!" The voice of a young girl that was like a devil sounded out by Duan Ling Tian’s ears.
Duan Ling Tian was able to discern that this was the voice of the little gold mouse.
"Duan Ling Tian!" Sun Rui looked at Duan Ling Tian, and a cold smile appeared on the corners of his mouth. "If you have another lifetime, remember to have some brains! I’ll send you on your way today."
Obviously, Sun Rui felt that Duan Ling Tian had agreed to his challenge because of rashness and because of his prodding.
"I’ll give you the exact same words." Duan Ling Tian had a calm expression as he spoke indifferently.
