Chapter 124: Staining the Fang Family in Blood
Translator: KurazyTolanzuraytor Editor: Lucas
The Fang Family Estate.
In contrast to the Li Family's state of mourning, the Fang Family was decorated with lanterns and bustling with excitement as if it was the New Year.
In a large hall of the Fang Family estate, an elderly and thin old man sat at the head as he enjoyed the reverent gazes of the Fang Family higher ups...
"Second Grandfather, you've really helped the Fang Family vent our grievances. Since the traceless disappearance of the Grand Elder, the Li Family and the Chen Family have been continuously pressuring our Fang Family, and more than half of our marketplace has been taken over by them. Now that you've returned, we've reclaimed everything." The Fang Family Patriarch, Fang Yi, had a face full of smiles as he spoke to the old man seated at the head.
"Now that Li Huo's dead, the Li Family is left completely without anyone to rely on. Once we've finished reorganizing the property we've just reclaimed, we can take over the Li Family's marketplace as well," one of the Fang Family elders said.
"Exactly! If we do this, I don't think the Chen Family would dare to say a word."
"Chen Family? Hehe, the Chen Family originally wanted to help the Li Family, but once they experienced the strength of second ancestor, didn't they cower and look on as the Li Family's Grand Elder was killed by second ancestor? They didn't dare to say a single word."
"Yeah, I still remember the expression of the Chen Family's Grand Elder, Chen Kun, at that time. He wanted to do something but didn't dare to; I nearly died from laughter!"
The Fang Family elders flattered the old man seated at the head.
The old man's gaze went cold as he slowly said, "If that Chen Kun dared to make a move, then I would have killed him there and then! However, being unable to obtain that miraculous medicinal liquid's medicinal formula was truly a great loss for our Fang Family."
The old man looked towards Fang Yi and asked, "Yi, have you found any leads on where Li Huo got that medicinal formula from?"
Fang Yi shook his head. "However, what I can be sure of is that he obtained it sometime in these two years.... Even a trash disciple with another surname of the Li Family was able to achieve great growth due to that medicinal liquid, and that disciple ultimately caused our Fang Family to lose face. Unfortunately, however, that little bastard went to the Li Family Main Clan, or else I'd surely have made living worse than death for him."
As Fang Yi finished speaking, a cold light flashed within his eyes.
"I've heard of him before. That little bastard must die indeed!" The old man's gaze went cold and emitted an icy cold light.
"Patriarch, Patriarch!" Just at this moment, a figure that was in a sorry state rushed into the Fang Family's hall.
The figure was a Fang Clan young man with a pale face, and his entire body was trembling out of extreme fear...
"Who let you come in?" Fang Yi's face sank.
The old man seated at the head looked at the young man as he asked, "What happened?"
"Second ancestor, Patriarch, two people have forced their way into our Fang Family and are currently slaughtering their way towards this very hall. Many members of our Fang Family have already perished!" the young man said, with a shivering voice.
"What?!" The expressions of all the Fang Family higher ups instant went gloomy.
"Let's go! I want to see who dares be so impudent in my Fang Family!" The old man flew out as he spoke.
The Fang Family higher ups followed suit.
Duan Ling Tian unsheathed his Violet Myrtle Flexible Sword the moment he entered the Fang Family Estate with Xiong Quan and started a slaughter. As long as they were Fang Family members, he would kill them on sight!
Xiong Quan followed behind Duan Ling Tian with a three-foot-long blade in hand; a life would be taken every instant his blade flashed...
The Violet Myrtle Flexible Sword in Duan Ling Tian's hand jerked, and with it another Fang Family member's life followed.
Duan Ling Tian's face and clothes had long ago been drenched in blood. Everwhere he passed, blood would flow there.
Killing a man every ten steps, unstoppable for a thousand miles!
Presently, this saying was extremely suitable to be used on Duan Ling Tian.
Even Duan Ling Tian wasn't aware of how many people had fallen to his sword as he moved along with an icy cold gaze. As far as he was concerned, no amount of Fang Family lives would equal the life of the Grand Elder Li Huo.
Presently, his unrestrained slaughter was precisely appeasing the Grand Elder's soul in heaven!
Whoosh! Whoosh! Whoosh! Whoosh! Whoosh!
The violet sword light and azure sword light were like two scythes of the death god, as a Fang Family disciple would fall lifeless every time they flashed.
The surroundings resounded with cries filled with dread. Eventually, there weren't any Fang Family disciples that dared to come close to them; they stood far off with faces filled with dread.
"It's Duan Ling Tian!" Someone recognized Duan Ling Tian.
"It really is him! Oh my god! There's actually nine ancient mammoth silhouettes above him.... Doesn't that mean that he's even stronger than the Patriarch?"
"Impossible! He should be only around 17 this year."
Every single Fang Family disciple felt terrified.
"Duan Ling Tian, it's you!" An explosive shout full of rage sounded from afar.
Duan Ling Tian's forward steps slowly came to a standstill, and his cold gaze returned to a calm state... The main targets of today's events had finally appeared!
Xiong Quan sheathed his sword and stood ramrod straight behind Duan Ling Tian like a guardian deity.
Duan Ling Tian gazed over only to see a thin old man with eyes that flickered brilliantly walking over in the lead to confront him.
The Fang Family Patriarch, Fang Yi, and the group of Fang Family elders followed suit.
Presently, all of the Fang Family higher ups had incomparably gloomy expressions, and the one that shouted explosively earlier was precisely Fang Yi.
"You're Duan Ling Tian?"
Duan Ling Tian's gaze was calm when confronted with the old man's cold question. "Yes, I'm Duan Ling Tian! Looks like you should be that Fang Family old goat."
"Then do you know that you're currently courting death..." Killing intent was emitted from the old man's eyes.
"Courting death?' Duan Ling Tian started laughing. "Old goat, are you that confident?"
"Presumptuous! Duan Ling Tian, you actually dare be disrespectful to my second grandfather. I'll kill you!" Fang Yi's face sank as he yelled explosively before transforming into a gust of wind that flashed towards Duan Ling Tian.
"That would depend on if you have the capability." A sneer appeared on the corners of Duan Ling Tian's mouth as he saw Fang Yi flashing over with eight ancient mammoth silhouettes above him.
In terms of strength, even if he didn't use a spirit weapon, Fang Yi's strength would still be inferior to his by one ancient mammoth.
In terms of martial skills, there was no way Fang Yi could ever compare to him.
"Die!" Fang Yi arrived in front of Duan Ling Tian in the blink of the eye, then he explosively roared before blasting his palm, which seemed to transform into a fan, downwards.
Duan Ling Tian made his move as well. He exploded forth with his full strength of nine ancient mammoths... Spirit Serpent Movement Technique!
Instantly, Duan Ling Tian made his way behind Fang Yu.
A violet sword light flashed by. Fang Yi's body continued to fiercely charge forward as his head flew off his body. Warm blood shot out of his neck like a fountain.
Fang Yi was completely unable to keep up with Duan Ling Tian's speed; their strengths were virtually on different levels!
Including the thin old man, all of the Fang Family higher ups were dumbstruck.
"Patriarch..." The Fang Family disciples that stood afar trembled in fear.
This Duan Ling Tian was a complete and utter monster! He actually only needed one sword strike to kill their Patriarch... too terrifying!
"Patriarch!" The Fang Family elders finally reacted from their dumbstruck state as they cried out in grief. Their gazes were filled with disbelief as they looked at Duan Ling Tian.
It was extremely difficult for them to imagine how Duan Ling Tian could possibly obtain such terrifying strength when he had only left Fresh Breeze Town for not even two years.
The strength of nine ancient mammoths!
None among them were capable of such strength.
"Yi!" The thin old man's face went green as he exploded with rage. His cold gaze seemed to be able to freeze Duan Ling Tian. "Little bastard, I'm going to use your blood to appease Yi's soul in heaven!"
"Old goat, do all your Fang Family members love to talk big like that?" The corners of Duan Ling Tian's mouth held a sense of coldness as he laughed.
"Duan Ling Tian!" Meanwhile, the Li Family higher ups had finally rushed over, and when they noticed Fang Yi's corpse on the ground, their eyes flashed with a trace of elation...
"Not one of you Li Family members should have any hopes of leaving here with your lives today." The old man took a step forward as his Origin Energy suffused throughout his body and 30 ancient mammoth silhouettes appeared above him...
Second level of the Origin Core Stage!
The Li Family higher ups, however, remained unfazed as their gazes emitted a sense of resolution.... They wanted to take revenge for Grand Elder!
Even if they battled to their deaths, they would be fearless!
However, just at this moment, the sound of an unexpected voice caused them all to be dumbstruck...
"You think the second level of the Origin Core Stage is really so great?" Duan Ling Tian looked at the old man as he ridiculed.
"Have a try." The old man sneered. He emitted a sense of madness.
At this moment, he had already thrown any considerations of the Aurora City Li Clan to the wind.
Duan Ling Tian took a step back as he indifferently said, "Xiong Quan, I'll give you the time of three breaths to finish him!"
Under the gazes of everyone present, Xiong Quan, who was standing behind Duan Ling Tian, took a step forward to confront the old man. "My liege, you're looking down on me... he will undoubtedly be dead within a breath's time!"
Everyone present was completely dumbstruck, this included the Li Family members as well as the Fang Family members...
They were originally shocked when Duan Ling Tian asked the middle-aged man to finish the old man within three breaths, but now what did this middle-aged man say?
Within one breath?
Was that even possible?
"One breath?" The old man burst out in laughter due to extreme rage. "Junior, I really want to see how you can finish me within one brea...."
The old man never finished speaking his mind, because he would never speak again in this life.
Everyone only saw something flash before their eyes before the middle-aged man that spoke boastfully disappeared before their eyes and instantly reappeared before the old man... as if he had teleported!
An extremely swift green sword light flashed by, and with it was the old man's head flying up into the air. His headless body shot out a fountain of blood before crashing onto the ground, following in the footsteps of Patriarch Fang Yi.
The old man's severed head flew off into the distance before rolling onto the ground. His eyes were filled with everlasting regret as they stared at everyone present.
"Xiong Quan, well done." Duan Ling Tian nodded in satisfaction as he laughed coldly in his heart.
"This Fang Family old goat really thought that he was something; he even dared to address Xiong Quan, the former guardian of the Boundless Sect, as a junior?"
"Thank you for the praise, my liege," Xiong Quan replied respectfully.
The Fang Family members were dumbstruck, and the Li Family members were stupefied.... All they felt was their scalps going numb.
Who the heck was this servant of Duan Ling Tian?
"Second ancestor..." The Fang Family elders finally returned to their senses and felt dread crawl up onto them as their faces turned pale.
"Kill!" The Li Family's Patriarch, Li Nan Feng, was the first to react. His body flashed out towards the remaining Fang Family elders.
The Li Family elders followed him and charged forward.
The Fang Family elders only took a glance at Xiong Quan before losing any remaining will to battle, then they scattered off, fleeing in panic...
"Xiong Quan, go help the Patriarch and the others." Duan Ling Tian ordered.
"Yes, my liege!" Xiong Quan's figure flashed out, and with his help, the Li Family higher-ups were able to quickly slaughter all of the Fang Family's higher-ups...
Duan Ling Tian, however, stood on the spot and watched on coldly, not having any intention of taking part in the massacre.
