Chapter 275: Savage Leopard
Translator: KurazyTolanzuraytor Editor: Lucas
"Roar!" Although the three-foot-long blade only plunged slightly into the head of the Elephant Rhino, it still felt pain. It roared in grief and its enormous body started violently swaying, wanting to shake Duan Ling Tian off.
Duan Ling Tian was stable like Mount Tai and remained unmoved, and a smile appeared on the corners of his mouth.
Suddenly, Duan Ling Tian's gaze went cold.
Origin Energy twined on the three-foot-long blade in his hand and started vibrating violently with a frequency that went faster and faster!
Om! Om! Om! Om! Om!
The terrifying Quake Energy vibrated in the Origin Energy on the three-foot-long blade, and the strong skin and flesh of the Elephant Rhino was quickly sliced open. The sharp edge of the sword plunged straight into the skull of the Elephant Rhino.
Fresh blood shot out like a storm, and the Quake Energy still continued!
The vibrating Origin Energy on the three-foot-long blade in Duan Ling Tian's hand directly shattered the skull of the Elephant Rhino.
"Roar~" The Elephant Rhino let out its final roar, then its enormous body crashed onto the ground, causing dust to suffuse the air.
The ground quaked when the enormous body of the Elephant Rhino fell. It allowed the three people that were in combat in the distance to notice the events and stopped their actions.
"This...." Shi Lan and Hu Li stared blankly at the fallen Elephant Rhino, They had faces full of shock and disbelief.
Never had they imagined that Duan Ling Tian would actually kill the Elephant Rhino!
Moreover, Duan Ling Tian was without a scratch.
"No! Impossible.... Impossible!" Shao Fei was completely dumbstruck when he saw the scene before him.
That pretty boy actually killed the Elephant Rhino?
How could this be possible!?
I'm surely dreaming, surely!
However, when he pinched his thigh and felt the pain that came from it, he realized that this was no dream, but reality.
Duan Ling Tian took out the beast core of the Elephant Rhino then returned to the side of Shi Lan and Hu Li before passing the best core to Hu Li. "Hu Li, keep it first, and we'll share it equally later."
"Duan Ling Tian, you're really something." Hu Li gave Duan Ling Tian a big thumbs up, then he shook his head and sighed. "Unfortunately, I didn't see how you did it earlier.... You're actually able to kill a fourth level Origin Core Stage Elephant Rhino with a cultivation at the third level of the Origin Core Stage. It's simply unbelievable!"
As he spoke up to this point, Hu Li's eyes had resentment within them as he swept his gaze at the nearby Shao Fei.
"Duan Ling Tian, you're too formidable." Shi Lan looked at Duan Ling Tian with a face full of adoration, as Duan Ling Tian killing that Elephant Rhino brought too great of a shock to her.
Before today, if someone told her that a third level Origin Core martial artist was able to kill a fourth level Origin Core Stage fierce beast, she would absolutely not believe it.
But now, she had no choice but to believe it!
Because this had happened right before her very eyes.
In next to no time, Shi Lan seemed to have recalled something, and she looked at Shao Fei with a furious expression. "Shao Fei, let's go our separate ways!"
As she recalled what happened earlier, Shi Lan's heart was filled with rage.
Luckily, Duan Ling Tian was alright. Otherwise, she wouldn't be able to forgive herself for her entire life.
After all, it was she who'd pulled Duan Ling Tian into this small team.
"Shao Fei, leave. In the future, I, Hu Li, will take it as I've never known you." Hu Li looked at Shao Fei with a face full of dissatisfaction. Now when he looked at Shao Fei, he couldn't help but recall what happened earlier and was extremely furious.
"What? Now that you two have this pretty boy, you plan to kick away the ladder?" Shao Fei's face had gone gloomy when Shi Lan spoke, and when he heard what Hu Li said, his gaze went cold. "Do you two think that I, Shao Fei, am someone the two of you can have at your beck and call?"
He was already envious of Duan Ling Tian, and now when he saw that Shi Lan and Hu Li actually wanted to drive him away for the sake of Duan Ling Tian, evil flames of rage instantly arose within his heart.
Actually, asking him to leave the small team was no big deal.
But when he thought of how it was because of this pretty boy, his heart was filled with hatred and rage, and he was unwilling to let it go at that.
"Shao Fei, what you did earlier really disappointed us." Hu Li looked at Shao Fei and his face sank.
"I've said it before, I was only helping that pretty boy earlier.... The facts prove that I was right to obstruct the two of you, as he could kill the Elephant Rhino by himself." Shao Fei sneered as if he'd long since known that Duan Ling Tian had the strength to kill the Elephant Rhino.
Actually, how could Shi Lan and Hu Li not know of those thoughts of his? And for a moment, their faces were extremely unsightly. "Shameless!"
"Alright, you two don't have to cut your relationship because of me." Duan Ling Tian shook his head and lightly smiled.
Shi Lan and Hu Li were stunned for a moment when they heard Duan Ling Tian.
If any elder helped appeal for Shao Fei, they wouldn't find it strange, but the person that appealed was instead Duan Ling Tian....
They both looked at Duan Ling Tian at the same time with faces full of astonishment.
"Hmph! At least you're sensible." Shao Fei laughed complacently when he heard Duan Ling Tian. He thought that Duan Ling Tian was afraid of him.
As far as he was concerned, even if Duan Ling Tian was able to kill the Elephant Rhino, it was only because Duan Ling Tian's luck was good.
Moreover, Duan Ling Tian had spent an extremely long time to kill the Elephant Rhino.
If he had attacked by relying upon his grade seven spirit sword, he would only need a single move, an instant, and it would be sufficient to kill the Elephant Rhino!
In his eyes, Duan Ling Tian was nothing.
Although Shi Lan and Hu Li didn't know why Duan Ling Tian would appeal on Shao Fei's behalf, since Duan Ling Tian, the concerned party, didn't fuss over it, they didn't say anything further either.
But they now completely took Shao Fei to be a stranger.
Shao Fei didn't care about it either, as he only stayed behind for the sake of striving for respect and striving for face!
Moreover, he would absolutely not allow that pretty boy to have an easy time!
Duan Ling Tian naturally noticed the icy-cold gaze that Shao Fei swept at him, but he didn't care. A sneer appeared on the corners of his mouth as if he already had control over the whole situation.
"Let's continue." Duan Ling Tian called Shi Lan and Hu Li then continued walking forward.
Shao Fei naturally caught up when he saw Duan Ling Tian's group of three walking forward, and his icy-cold gaze never left Duan Ling Tian's side....
Now, he wished for nothing more than to kill Duan Ling Tian!
But he wanted to see Duan Ling Tian being killed by a fierce beast.
Only in this way would he be able to vent the hatred in his heart!
Their group continued walking forward, and they hadn't walked for long when Duan Ling Tian stopped moving.
"What's wrong?" Shi Lan and Hu Li both had bewildered expressions.
"Pu**y!" Shao Fei sneered and continued walking forward.
Duan Ling Tian's brows knitted as he slowly said, "I'm afraid we've encountered trouble."
In the beginning, Hu Li and Shi Lan were still slightly baffled, but in next to no time, their gazes descended into the distance and their pupils couldn't help but constrict!
A leopard with a hideous and scrawny body walked over from afar.
This leopard had a pair of dark green eyes, and every step it took seemed to transform into a heavy hammer that struck onto their chests, causing them to be slightly unable to catch their breaths.
"Savage Leopard!" Shao Fei's alarmed cry sounded out at almost the exact same time, and traces of fear and dread were mixed within it.
Savage Leopard, a sixth level Origin Core Stage fierce beast!
If he were to go against the Savage Leopard, he wouldn't have the slightest confidence.
Once a Savage Leopard launched an attack, it was able to exert the strength of 80 ancient mammoths....Whereas he, even when relying on his grade seven spirit sword, was at most able to exert a strength of 76 ancient mammoths....
The strength of 60 ancient mammoths was from his cultivation at the fourth level of the Origin Core Stage, and the other strength of 16 ancient mammoths depended on the amplification provided by the grade seven spirit sword.
This was only offensive strength!
In terms of offense, he had a grade seven spirit sword, but that was still inferior to the Savage Leopard.
In terms of speed, the grade seven spirit sword was unable to amplify speed, so his speed could only rely on the strength of 60 ancient mammoths to speed him up, and it was far inferior to the speed of the Savage Leopard that had the strength of 80 ancient mammoths to speed it up!
Shao Fei started to retreat when he saw the dark green eyes of the Savage Leopard staring at him....
He understood the habitual nature of the Savage Leopard in his heart. Once a Savage Leopard targeted someone, it would target that person till the end. Even if the person were to run, the Savage Leopard would still catch up to the person and tear the person into pieces.
So it was practically impossible for him to flee.
An insane thought arose within his heart....
If someone were to attack the Savage Leopard, the Savage Leopard would surely abandon its original target and move to target the person that attacked it.
In next to no time, Shao Fei retreated to Duan Ling Tian's group of three, then he shouted out explosively, "Shi Lan, Hu Li, and that pretty boy.... We'll join forces and kill this Savage Leopard!"
Duan Ling Tian's group of three didn't move when they heard what Shao Fei said, and they looked at Shao Fei as if they were looking at an idiot.
"Shao Fei, do you think we don't know the habitual nature of the Savage Leopard? You want us to attack the Savage Leopard and attract its attention.... Then you can take this opportunity to flee, right!?" Shi Lan was terrified when facing the Savage Leopard, and her delicate figure was frightened to the point that it started trembling lightly, but when she heard what Shao Fei said, she still couldn't refrain from ridiculing him.
"Shao Fei, you're too atrocious!" Hu Li's face was extremely unsightly as well. This Shao Fei actually wanted to step over their corpses to flee.
Did Shao Fei really take him to be an idiot?
The Savage Leopard was calm and didn't make a sound as it walked step by step towards Shao Fei, as if there was only Shao Fei in the world at this moment.
Even when Shao Fei had retreated behind Duan Ling Tian's group of three, the Savage Leopard still followed him step by step.
When the Savage Leopard walked past Duan Ling Tian's group of three, Shi Lan's face was deathly pale, and the trembling of her delicate figure had never stopped....And Hu Li's face was extremely unsightly as well; his legs were like lead, not daring to move a bit.
He knew that once the Savage Leopard pounced and killed Shao Fei, it would turns its crosshair onto them.
Shi Lan and Hu Li felt a burst of powerlessness in their hearts when faced with the Savage Leopard.
Only Duan Ling Tian had a calm expression as he glanced at Shao Fei with a sneer on the corners of his mouth.
Did this Shao Fei really think he was so magnanimous to kindheartedly let him stay?
Actually, before Duan Ling Tian killed the Elephant Rhino, he had already intended to deal with Shao Fei, and only until after he killed the Elephant Rhino and his sharp Spiritual Force perceived the aura of the Savage Leopard did another plan arise within his heart.
The present scene, and everything else, were all within his control.
"If all of you don't join forces with me, then all of us will die!" Shao Fei's expression was unsightly, and traces of dread was emitted from his eyes. He didn't forget to make a last effort with an intention to persuade Duan Ling Tian's group of three to attack.
Duan Ling Tian's eyes narrowed, and he looked at Shao Fei as he said indifferently, "Shao Fei, if I didn't remember wrongly, until now, it seems to be that only you within our small team hasn't fought a battle yet, right?"
