Chapter 276: Duan Ling Tian's Strength
Translator: KurazyTolanzuraytor Editor: Lucas
"As a member of our small team, if you want to share the gains equally with us... you can't keep sitting around and waiting to enjoy the fruits of others' labor, right?" Now, Duan Ling Tian completely returned what Shao Fei said to him earlier.
Shao Fei was angered to the point his face was livid, but he was utterly unable to retort.
These words were all what he said to Duan Ling Tian earlier.
For a moment, he only felt that he'd hurt himself by his own doing!
Meanwhile, he realized that there was a problem. If he were to attack the Savage Leopard first, Duan Ling Tian's group of three would absolutely not make a move....
He took a deep breath, then he forcefully suppressed the fear in his heart.
"I'll attack the Savage Leopard now. If all of you don't join forces with me, then once it kills me, the three of you can wait for death!" Shao Fei's eyes were crimson red as he stared at the Savage Leopard and Origin Energy flashed atop the grade seven spirit sword in his hand.
Instantly, Shao Fei moved as if transforming into a gust of wind. He rushed towards the Savage Leopard aggressively, and above him, 60 ancient mammoth silhouettes condensed into form....
He completely exerted the strength of a fourth level Origin Core martial artist when facing the Savage Leopard and didn't dare hold back in the slightest!
He understood in his heart that at this time, a shred of holding back would likely instantly cost him his life.
At the same time, the grade seven spirit sword in his hand flashed out as if transforming into a bolt of lightning that swiftly flew out to pierce towards an eye of the Savage Leopard.
No matter what fierce beast it was, the eyes were always a weak point.
Now, another 16 ancient mammoth silhouettes appeared beside the 60 ancient mammoth silhouettes that were above Shao Fei....
The might of a grade seven spirit weapon!
He'd exerted all his strength on this sword strike!
"This Shao Fei is intelligent." The corners of Duan Ling Tian's mouth curled into a sneer when he saw Shao Fei attacking the eyes of the Savage Leopard.
But he wasn't optimistic about Shao Fei's attack, as the speed of the Savage Leopard was far from something Shao Fei could compare to.... Thus, it was impossible for Shao Fei's sword strike to touch the Savage Leopard.
The result was exactly as Duan Ling Tian thought, the sixth level Origin Core Stage Savage Leopard's body flashed and then easily dodged Shao Fei's sword strike.
"Roar!" The Savage Leopard roared for the first time, and its roar was filled with rage.
"No!" Shao Fei's pupils constricted when he saw the Savage Leopard dodge his attack and pounce towards him, and he let out a sad and shrill cry.
In the next moment, his body was knocked flying by the Savage Leopard.
Subsequently, the Savage Leopard opened its bloody mouth and bit at one of Shao Fei's legs, and with a squelch, it forcefully tore off one of Shao Fei's legs and blood splattered all over the ground.
"Ah!" Shao Fei let out a shrill cry that was incomparably forlorn and bitter. It caused a chill to run down one's spine.
Shao Fei's face was ghastly pale, and he used his Origin Energy to stop his bleeding with great difficulty, then he shouted out in grief towards Duan Ling Tian's group of three, "You guys still aren't attacking?!"
Shi Lan and Hu Li both had unsightly expressions. He wants them to attack?
Isn't that the same as going to die?
Thinking about how they would die anyway and looking at Shao Fei's current miserable state, they glanced at the nearby Duan Ling Tian and then looked at each other before fiercely nodding as if they'd made some sort of decision.
"Duan Ling Tian, we'll buy some time for you. Hurry up and flee!" Hu Li abruptly shouted out explosively, and he seemed as if he was in a frenzy as the three-foot-long blade in his hand flashed out....
Skynet Sword Technique!
The sword images that covered the sky descended down, enveloping the location the Savage Leopard was at.
"Duan Ling Tian, quickly flee!" Shi Lan shouted out with a tender voice, then she caught up to Hu Li and struck out with her sword at the Savage Leopard.
At this moment, Shi Lan and Hu Li's gazes were firm like never before.
As far as they were concerned, Duan Ling Tian's natural talent in the Martial Dao was so high and his achievements in the future were limitless. If he were to die here like this, then it would truly be too unfortunate.
Moreover, they really took Duan Ling Tian as their companion and as a friend.
Duan Ling Tian's heard trembled, and a warm current arose within it.
It had already been very long since he was moved like this.
The last time was over three years ago, when the fatty Li Xuan blocked Duan Ling Xing's palm strike for him. Only at that time was he moved like this....
Seeing Shi Lan and Hu Li facing death willingly, Shao Fei endured the pain, and his face was pale and unsightly as he shouted, "Two lunatics!"
He'd never expected that even at this time, Shi Lan and Hu Li would still be thinking of protecting Duan Ling Tian.... This caused infinite envy and hatred to arise within his heart!
Why can he make Shi Lan and Hu Li be like this but I can't?
Shao Fei looked at Duan Ling Tian with eyes filled with unwillingness, rage, and a trace of an icy-cold killing intent that seemed ready to swallow Duan Ling Tian appeared.
"Roar!" The Savage Leopard originally intended to kill Shao Fei, but when it noticed Shi Lan and Hu Li flashing towards it, it instantly changed its target.
Its pair of dark green eyes stared fixedly at Shi Lan and Hu Li, and its eyes contained a trace of icy-coldness.
A trace of despair flashed within the eyes of Shi Lan and Hu Li when they saw the Savage Leopard pouncing at them.
But within this despair, there were traces of another feeling mixed within.... There was firmness, and there was braveness to face death unflinchingly!
Everything was just for the sake of helping Duan Ling Tian obtain a chance at survival.
"Be careful!" Duan Ling Tian finally moved, as he knew that if he still didn't make a move, Shi Lan and Hu Li would surely die.... And this wasn't something he wanted to see.
Duan Ling Tian's figure seemed to transform into an arrow that left the bowstring. He was incomparably swift as he directly flashed towards the location of the Savage Leopard.
At this moment, he didn't hold back any longer and used his entire strength to dash out.
Shi Lan and Hu Li were in imminent danger, so he didn't dare be slow.
"No.... Impossible!!" Shao Fei, who had one of his legs bitten off by the Savage Leopard and was collapsed on the floor, just happened to be facing Duan Ling Tian's location, and when he saw the 71 ancient mammoth silhouettes that appeared above Duan Ling Tian, he was completely dumbstruck.
The strength of 71 ancient mammoths!
According to his knowledge, even a fifth level Origin Core martial artist only had the strength of 70 ancient mammoths.
This Duan Ling Tian is a fifth level Origin Core martial artist?
How old is he?
Instantly, traces of coldness arose within Shao Fei's heart, as he never imagined that Duan Ling Tian's strength and natural talent were actually so terrifying.
Terrifying to the point that it struck terror in his heart.
Of course, after his feeling of fear came infinite hatred and envy.
The heavens are unfair!
Why can this pretty boy possess such great natural talent!
At the same time that Duan Ling Tian dashed out, a sword appeared within his hand, a grade seven spirit sword.
He didn't dare be careless when facing the Savage Leopard.
Shi Lan and Hu Li only heard an awe-inspiring sound of wind coming from behind them, then an incomparably swift figure descended before them....
"Duan Ling Tian!" Shi Lan and Hu Li's faces went ghastly pale. They currently didn't even have the time to think about why Duan Ling Tian's speed would be so swift, and there was only one thought in their minds: Duan Ling Tian actually didn't flee?
Right when helplessness and bitterness arose within their hearts, and they thought that Duan Ling Tian would die with them....
They unintentionally noticed the ancient mammoth silhouettes above Duan Ling Tian....
And this glance nearly shocked them out of their wits!
They clearly saw that along with the three-foot-long blade in Duan Ling Tian's hand flashing out, his Origin Energy burst forth, and there were now 90 ancient mammoths above Duan Ling Tian.
It was precisely on the foundation of his own strength of 71 ancient mammoths that Duan Ling Tian utilised the amplification of his grade seven spirit sword.
Duan Ling Tian's gaze went cold as he faced the Savage Leopard that pounced towards him.
Sword Drawing Arts!
A sharp sword strike was easily executed in the hands of Duan Ling Tian.
In the eyes of Shi Lan and Hu Li, the sword in Duan Ling Tian's hand seemed to instantly vanish without a trace....
Of course, they knew that it didn't really vanish.
Instead, the speed of the sword had attained a certain level, causing their eyes to be unable to catch sight of it.
Their hearts completely rose to their throats, and they looked on at the scene before them with a dumbstruck expression....
"Roar~" At the same time that the Savage Leopard pounced over, it seemed to have noticed how terrifying Duan Ling Tian's sword strike was, and its dark green eyes emitted a trace of terror, then it let out a low roar before its body trembled, wanting to dodge.
But even though the Savage Leopard's speed was swift, Duan Ling Tian's sword was even swifter!
The speed of the Savage Leopard was at most powered by the strength of 80 ancient mammoths....
Whereas Duan Ling Tian's sword strike contained the amplification of a grade seven spirit sword. The speed of his sword was powered by the strength of an entire 90 ancient mammoths.
Blood splattered all over.
The grade seven spirit sword in Duan Ling Tian's hand directly penetrated between the brows of the Savage Leopard.
And this wasn't the end....
Duan Ling Tian's eyes went cold and the corners of his mouths curled into a cold smile.
Instantly, Origin Energy raged on the grade seven spirit sword in Duan Ling Tian's hand, and it vibrated at an extremely high frequency, a frequency that grew higher and higher!
Om! Om! Om! Om! Om!
Under the fuelling from the Origin Energy, the terrifying Quake Energy penetrated the skull of the Savage Leopard like penetrating dry leaves.
"Crack...." An ear-piercing sound of bones shattering abruptly echoed out, causing a chill to run down one's spine.
"Roar~" the Savage Leopard let out its final low roar, and its jade-green eyes that were incomparably dazzling a moment ago had now completely dimmed down. Its body that was all skin and bones crashed into the ground and was completely devoid of any signs of life.
The sixth level Origin Core Stage Savage Leopard, dead!
The entire scene was deathly silent.
Shi Lan and Hu Li looked at this scene in stupefaction. They couldn't recover from their shock even after a very long time....
At this moment, Duan Ling Tian's figure was that imposing in their eyes, imposing like a mountain that they could rely on.
Hu Li fiercely gulped down a mouthful of saliva and was unable to calm down the shock in his heart even until now.
At that moment earlier, he felt like his heart was practically on the verge of stopping from fear....
Although Shi Lan's reaction wasn't as exaggerated as Hu Li's, her gaze toward Duan Ling Tian was extremely complicated.
She recalled the scene when she'd just encountered Duan Ling Tian not long ago. At that time, she even 'saved' Duan Ling Tian.
Now it would seem that Duan Ling Tian was suppressing his strength at that time to 'play' with that fierce beast, and her actions of saving Duan Ling Tian was unnecessary.
As she thought up to this point, she couldn't stop her face from flushing.
Nevertheless, Duan Ling Tian's strength still deeply shocked Shi Lan and Hu Li.
As far as they knew, the strength Duan Ling Tian revealed earlier was at least at the fifth level of the Origin Core Stage!
A fifth level Origin Core martial artist at around 20 years old....
According to their knowledge, such a monster had never once appeared within the Seven Star Sword Sect.
"You....You're a fifth level Origin Core martial artist...." A slightly hoarse voice entered Duan Ling Tian's ears, and it was filled with traces of icy-cold hatred.
Duan Ling Tian glanced over.
It was Shao Fei who was half lying on the floor, and he gazed at Duan Ling Tian with a face full of rage. "Duan Ling Tian, you clearly were confident in killing that Savage Leopard. The why did you allow that Savage Leopard to injure me? You....You did it on purpose! You did it on purpose!"
