War Sovereign Soaring The Heavens Chapter 1698
When Xu Jing whose expression had turned solemn when he witnessed Duan Ling Tian’s strength heard his words, his expression turned grave immediately.
His opponent’s calm voice enraged him. In fact, up until now, he had undeniably had the upper hand.
Xu Jing was not the only who thought so. Even Ren Zhong, Liu Hong Guang, and Xu Cen had thought so as well.
However, they did not know this was Duan Ling Tian’s intention.
When Duan Ling Tian saw the disdain in Xu Jing’s eyes again, he knew he had successfully achieved what he wanted.
When he made his move earlier, he did not use all his strength so that Xu Jing would let his guard down. If things go accordingly, he had the confidence to kill Xu Jing before he could admit defeat.
Although Xu Jing was arrogant and prideful, if he knew Duan Ling Tian was stronger than him, he would not hesitate to put his pride aside and admit defeat to save his own life.
This was not something Duan Ling Tian wanted to see.
Due to this reason, as Duan Ling Tian and Xu Jing continued to fight, he maintained his earlier strength to fight with Xu Jing. For a moment, it seemed as though he was placed in a disadvantageous position and appeared slightly wretched.
When the group of sectless cultivators saw this, their hearts beat faster for Duan Ling Tian’s sake.
“This Li Feng is obviously not Xu Jing’s match, so why isn’t he admitting defeat?”
“That’s right! Don’t tell me he really thinks he’ll be able to win Xu Jing? If this continues, he’ll be killed by Xu Jing!”
“If I were him, I would’ve admitted defeat a long time ago. Could it be Li Feng feels his pride is even more important than his life?”
The group of sectless cultivators was extremely worried for Duan Ling Tian. They were unaware the person in question was actually having fun playing this game.
At this moment, even Ren Zhong and Liu Hong Guang could not help but break out in cold sweat because of Duan Ling Tian.
“Young Mansion Master, kill him!” At this moment, somebody from the group of Rising Sky Mansion’s people shouted. This led to many people shouting immediately as well.
The group of Rising Sky Mansion’s people shouted. Their voice entered Xu Jing’s ears. For a moment, he felt smug and puffed up with pride.
As he walked in the air, a hint of coldness flashed in his eyes as he looked at Duan Ling Tian and said in a low voice, “It’s time to end the game now!”
The moment he finished speaking, his attack became even more violent and faster.
Duan Ling Tian’s eyes gleamed when he saw this. His chance had finally arrived.
When he saw Xu Jing controlled the Wind Dragon to charge at him, Duan Ling Tian faked a panicked expression before he began to flee.
“Trying to flee?” When Xu Jing saw the expression on Duan Ling Tian’s face and his action, disdain flashed in his eyes. His figure moved as his speed increased again.
The roar was akin to the roar of a real dragon.
Xu Jing used his Territory that had been consolidated from his True Origin and acted together with the Wind Dragon that was transformed from his martial technique as he flashed across the sky while charging at Duan Ling Tian with bared fangs. His speed was so fast, Duan Ling Tian could not compare to him at all.
The Wind Dragon caught up to Duan Ling Tian in no time at all.
Xu Jing’s figure came to halt as a victorious smile appeared on his face when he saw the Wind Dragon ruthlessly slammed on Duan Ling Tian’s back.
As a loud sound reverberated in the air, the Wind Dragon that was cast by Xu Jing exploded with terrifying energy, causing the air to ripple. If it was an ordinary Martial Cultivator who had just broken through to the peak of the Refined Saint Stage had received this blow, he would have undoubtedly died.
However, was Duan Ling Tian’s strength comparable to an ordinary Martial Cultivator who had just broken through to the peak of the Refined Saint Stage? To be more precise, was Duan Ling Tian’s defense comparable to an ordinary Martial Cultivator who had just broken through to the peak of the Refined Saint Stage?
In fact, Duan Ling Tian’s body was even more powerful than a Six-clawed Divine Dragon who was at the same stage with him.
However, Duan Ling Tian still suffered a heavy injury from Xu Jing’s attack since his cultivation base was merely at the Intermediate Pristine Saint Stage despite his powerful body and the Sword Energy’s protection that was transformed from the Sun True Origin that fused with the Sword Shadowed Heart, the second stage of the Sovereign Heart Sword.
At the moment when Duan Ling Tian was injured, and Xu Jing had a smug smile on his face…
The sound of sword whistling in the air that disappeared as soon as it appeared reverberated suddenly like a howl in the middle of a silent and tranquil night.
In Ren Zhong, Liu Hong Guang, and Xu Cen’s eyes, a swift golden sword ray shot out from Duan Ling Tian’s hand. Its speed was so fast. In fact, its speed was twice the speed of his previous attack. Moreover, the speed of this sword ray was even faster than Xu Jing’s Wind Dragon.
At this moment, if they still could not figure out that Duan Ling Tian had been concealing his strength, it could be said that their long lives had been lived in vain.
Horror dawned on Xu Cen’s face. He immediately shouted to warn Xu Jing, “Young Mansion Master!”
Unfortunately, due to the fact that Xu Jing was currently gloating over Duan Ling Tian being injured by his attack, he was caught off guard by Duan Ling Tian’s attack. Due to this reason, the swift golden sword ray was only a foot away from him when he finally realized what was happening.
At this instant, the golden sword ray did not feel like a sword ray. It felt more like a blazing sun to him. A blazing sun that was crashing toward him!
Blood splattered everywhere. A bloody hole appeared in between Xu Jing’s brows.
However, a smug smile still remained on his face. This was destined to be the last expression in his life.
At the same time, Duan Ling Tian who had suffered quite a heavy injury also could no longer endure it anymore. The moment he opened his mouth, he threw up a huge mouthful of blood.
Blood spattered the sky like dazzling red roses.
Although Duan Ling Tian was heavily injured, he did not forget to collect Xu Jing’s Spatial Ring as his war trophy.
It was only when Duan Ling Tian had taken Xu Jing’s Spatial Ring, and Xu Jing’s body had crashed on to the giant chess piece into a bloody mess did the crowd regain their senses.
The entire place fell silent again.
“Young Mansion Master!” Xu Cen’s shout snapped everyone out of their daze.
However, as Xu Cen shouted, two swift figures had already appeared beside Duan Ling Tian to protect him as they glared at Xu Cen. It was as though they were afraid Xu Cen would attack Duan Ling Tian out of rage.
They did not dare to let their guards down in front of Xu Cen based on his previous action.
Naturally, the two figures were none other than Ren Zhong, the Vice Mansion Master of Sky Hurdle Mansion, and Liu Hong Guang, the Second Elder of Raging Wave Mansion.
In the beginning, they were also baffled as to how Duan Ling Tian managed to kill Xu Jing at the critical moment.
However, they had watched Duan Ling Tian and Xu Jing’s fight from the beginning until the end. They understood, at the moment Xu Jing was killed, that Duan Ling Tian was only pretending to be weak to deceive Xu Jing.
Due to this reason, Xu Jing had let down his guard and caused his own death at the critical moment.
‘Looks like Li Feng already has the intention to kill Xu Jing from the very beginning. Otherwise, he wouldn’t have planned this so thoroughly,’ Ren Zhong thought to himself.
Liu Hong Guang had the same thoughts as Ren Zhong as well.
They could see Duan Ling Tian was more powerful than Xu Jing, it was not impossible for him to kill him in a direct battle. However, if he had done that, it would give Xu Jing a chance to admit defeat.
Due to his scheme, Xu Jing had fallen into his trap and was led by the nose by Duan Ling Tian. In the end, he could not escape death.
At this moment, Ren Zhong and Liu Hong Guang felt utterly delighted in their hearts.
A genius Martial Cultivator with such intelligence was rare even in the Upper Province of the Dao Martial Saint Land, let alone the Lower Province of the Dao Martial Saint Land.
If such a person joined their sects, they could start counting the days before their sects become a quasi third-rate force.
Due to this reason, they had urgently appeared next to Duan Ling Tian to protect him.
“Li Feng! To think you actually dare to kill the Young Master of Rising Sky Mansion!” When Xu Cen saw Ren Zhong and Xu Cen were already by Duan Ling Tian’s side, he knew he could no longer make a move. However, he could not let the matter go just like that!
The hope of the Rising Sky Mansion had been cut off by this Li Feng!
He was very certain once this news spread out to the Rising Sky Mansion, Li Feng would definitely become the number one enemy of the Rising Sky Mansion.
“He wanted to kill me, but I can’t kill him? What a joke!” Duan Ling Tian, who had recovered a little after consuming the Healing Medicinal Pill, wiped the blood off the corner of his mouth before he replied with a smirk, “Don’t tell me the people from Rising Sky Mansion are always this arrogant?!”
Perhaps an ordinary person would be afraid of Xu Cen’s threat, but Duan Ling Tian had come all the way here to kill Xu Jing. How could he possibly be afraid of Xu Cen’s threat?
“Xue Nai, Brother Ling Tian has helped you to get rid of Xu Jing… From today onward, you’ll be able to live the happy and carefree life you wanted.” At this moment, a delicate figure appeared in Duan Ling Tian’s mind and caused the smirk on his face to disappear. It was replaced with a warm smile.
Naturally, in other people’s eyes, it seemed as though he was just smiling goofily.
“H-He actually killed Xu Jing?” At the same time, the spectators finally regained their senses. They gasped in shock as they looked at Duan Ling Tian who seemed to have a silly smile on his face. The silly smile on Duan Ling Tian’s face appeared out of place on his aloof face.
However, nobody paid any attention to this at all. Their attention was on the fact that Duan Ling Tian had killed Xu Jing.
When they saw Xu Jing had died, there was a smile on the faces of the people from the Brahma Temple and Pure Yang Shrine. They were also looking at Duan Ling Tian with a hint of warmth in their eyes.
“Thank you, benefactor Li Feng.”
“Thank you, fellow Li Feng.”
Two voices entered Duan Ling Tian’s ears in a timely manner and took him by surprise.
When he lifted his head, he realized the people who had sent him the Voice Transmissions were none other than the Abbot of Brahma Temple and the Shrine Master of Pure Yang Shrine.
He had killed Xu Jing and had indirectly avenged the Flowery Monk and Jing Xu Zi.
At the same time, the sectless cultivators on the scene had also burst into a commotion. One by one, they shouted Duan Ling Tian’s fake name excitedly.
Duan Ling Tian killing Xu Jing had also indirectly avenged Zhong Gu. Naturally, they were excited.
