Chapter 195: Once Again Crippling The Dantian
Translator: KurazyTolanzuraytor Editor: Lucas
Although Duan Ling Tian was currently laughing, everyone present could feel the infinite rage that Duan Ling Tian's laugh contained.
"Exactly, big brother Xue Lang is my backer...How about it? Scared?" Tong Li replied in a cold voice. At this moment, she wasn't afraid of Duan Ling Tian in the slightest.
Xue Lang was someone her cousin Fifth Prince introduced to her yesterday, and the purpose was to provide her with a backer within Paladin Academy so she wouldn't have to fear Duan Ling Tian.
Moreover, Xue Lang indeed didn't disappoint her, as every time she mentioned Duan Ling Tian, he would have a face full of disdain and looked down upon Duan Ling Tian. This caused her to feel that her backer was extremely strong, and he absolutely wasn't someone Duan Ling Tian was capable of shaking.
"Look like...Miss Tong, you want your memory refreshed this time." Duan Ling Tian's crimson red eyes abruptly turned gloomy.
"Duan Ling Tian, I know you've broken through to the Origin Core Stage now, but even if you've broken through to the Origin Core Stage, what about it? Big brother Xue Lang is a second level Origin Core Stage powerhouse!" Tong Li grunted as she spoke, and her tone was filled with extreme disdain towards Duan Ling Tian.
When Xue Lang heard what Tong Li said, his originally arrogant expression became even more arrogant, and his gaze looked down condescendingly at Duan Ling Tian. "Duan Ling Tian, I heard from Tong Li that you've hit her before?"
"Indeed." Duan Ling Tian's eyes went slightly cold, and the gaze he looked at Xue Lang with didn't have any hint of emotion.
Xue Lang felt embarrassed from humiliation when he heard Duan Ling Tian's casual reply, and he snapped, "Kneel down right now and kowtow in apology to Little Li, and maybe out of respect for the Duan Clan, I might not pursue the matter any further... Or else, even if you're a Duan Clan direct descendent, I'll still properly teach you how to conduct yourself."
"Kowtow in apology? Are you sure?" Duan Ling Tian's voice sank, and instantly the air seemed to be affected by him; it went slightly colder.
"Kneel down!" Xue Lang glared fiercely at Duan Ling Tian as he shouted coldly. And at the same time, Origin Energy slowly came out of Xue Lang's right hand. It flashed as it twined around his hand... it seemed like he would attack Duan Ling Tian at any moment!
"So what if I don't kneel?" Duan Ling Tian had a mocking expression on his face as he swept Xue Lang with a disdainful gaze. Asking others to kneel down at every turn, does this Xue Lang actually think he is the Emperor of the Crimson Sky Kingdom?
Not to mention it was only Xue Lang, even if it was the Emperor of the Crimson Sky Kingdom in the flesh, it would still be impossible for him to make Duan Ling Tian kneel.
"Not kneeling? Then I'll have to help the Duan Clan properly teach you how to conduct yourself." Xue Lang sneered as he took a step forward.
"I'll give you one more chance, f**k off out of my line of sight right now... Or else, even if you're the son of that Guard Army Commander or whatever, I still won't show mercy!" Duan Ling Tian's eyes moved about and were suffused with a gloomy sheen as he stared at Xue Lang.
If this Xue Lang was insensible and didn't retreat in the face of difficulties, then don't blame him for being ruthless and merciless!
Tang Guo's death caused flames of fury to burn within Duan Ling Tian's heart. It had accumulated to the brim and currently showed signs of being unable to be suppressed anymore...they would explode out at any moment!
If this Xue Lang really were to really attack him now, then he could only blame himself for being misfortunate.
"I really want to see how you would show no mercy." The sneer on Xue Lang's face grew wider as he looked at Duan Ling Tian with a gaze full of disdain.
"Big brother Xue Lang, I want him dead!" Tong Li's voice echoed out at the right moment and seemed to transform into the fuse of the battle.
Instantly, Xue Lang's spirit was stimulated by this, and his gaze went cold as his body flashed out as if transforming into a roc. He dove down towards where Duan Ling Tian was.
He wanted to show off in front of Tong Li, so he attacked with full force at the start!
Above him, 30 ancient mammoth silhouettes condensed into form and moved with his body as they dashed out with an imposing manner that shot through the sky.
"Idiot!" Duan Ling Tian's gaze went cold when faced with Xue Lang, who approached in full fury, and his hand moved along his waist before his Violet Myrtle Flexible Sword flashed out.
Blood Crescent Inscription!
Instantly, a blood light flashed out from the blade of the Violet Myrtle Flexible Sword. The blood light condensed into form, eventually transforming into a blood crescent before moving to intercept Xue Lang....
The blood crescent's speed was extremely swift, so it instantly arrived before Xue Lang.
Xue Lang's face, which was covered with a sneer, instantly went deathly pale. His pupils constricted and he shouted in alarm. "No!"
At this moment, he'd noticed the strength contained within this blood crescent as well, and it was absolutely not something he was capable of withstanding.... This was the strength of an inscription, an inscription that caused him to palpitate and be terrified!
"It's an offensive inscription!" Some students with sharp gazes couldn't help from crying out in alarm.
A blood crescent flew into the air and pierced into the location of Xue Lang's Dantian as if cutting through tofu and directly twisted into his Dantian.
"Ah!!" Accompanied by a miserable shrill cry that made people palpitate, Xue Lang's forward charging body trembled in the air before falling straight down.
Dust suffused in the air.
Xue Lang, who was approaching in full fury just a moment ago, instantly seemed to become a dead dog. He lied there and heavily gasped for air.
He struggled as he withdrew a gold injury pill to consume, and his complexion eased up slightly. However, when he tried to perceive the Origin Energy within his Dantian, he instead noticed that his Dantian was absolutely empty.
"Dantian...destroyed?" Xue Lang's pupils constricted, and his expression became agitated. His gaze revealed insanity when he looked at Duan Ling Tian and sneered. "Duan Ling Tian, you actually crippled my Dantian, you actually crippled my Dantian...You're a dead man, you're a dead man!"
"Then I'll be waiting to see." Duan Ling Tian's gaze was calm when faced with Xue Lang's threats, as if everything that just happened wasn't worth mentioning.
And at this moment, the crowd of spectating students was deathly silent, and only after a moment were they in an uproar.
"Oh my god, Duan Ling Tian actually crippled Xue Lang's Dantian."
"With his Dantian crippled, Xue Lang's entire life can be considered to be utterly destroyed!"
"Forcefully coming forward for the sake of such a woman and destroyed his own life. Was it worth?"
"I never imagined that Duan Ling Tian actually possess such a terrifying inscription. Origin Core martial artists are like paper before that inscription."
All the students were dumbstruck.
Xue Lang, a grade 6 student and existence at the second level of the Origin Core Stage, was crippled by the grade 1 student, Duan Ling Tian, just like that!
"As expected...." Compared to the shock of these students, Xiao Yu, Xiao Xun, and Tian Hu instead seemed to have long since guessed the result of this scene. They remembered that Su Tong, who was a third level Origin Core martial artist and the former number 1 within the Su Clan's younger generation at that time, also had his Dantian crippled by Duan Ling Tian in this way.
The inscription Duan Ling Tian used at that time was of the same type, and how similar was the scene at that time to the scene before them?
They were confident that if the news of that matter regarding Su Tong wasn't suppressed by Paladin Academy and instead spread around the entire Paladin Academy... Today, Xue Lang would absolutely not dare be so arrogant before Duan Ling Tian!
In their opinion, Xue Lang's actions were virtually no different from suicide!
"No...Impossible...How could this be possible...." Tong Li looked at Xue Lang, who was suffering to the point that he unceasingly rolled on the ground, and for a moment she was stunned, as she was unwilling to believe that all this was real.
Xue Lang was a second level Origin Core martial artist...The backer her cousin found for her!
She didn't care about Xue Lang's fate. What she cared about was that since Xue Lang had fallen, there would be no one to stand in front of her and block Duan Ling Tian.
Tong Li's face was deathly pale, and she started to retreat backwards. Now she only hoped to leave this place before Duan Ling Tian reacted.
"What? Miss Tong, this Xue Lang only suffered such a fate because he came forward for you, but you're already planning to flee by yourself?" Duan Ling Tian naturally noticed Tong Li's petty actions. The corners of his mouth curled into a sneer and his voice was filled with a mocking tone.
What Duan Ling Tian said unsurprisingly gave rise to a stir within the spectating group of students.
"Xue Lang is too pitiable, his Dantian was crippled for the sake of this Tong Li, and not only did this Tong Li not care, she even wanted to leave Xue Lang and flee...."
"Actually, it isn't strange. This Tong Li is capable of being so cruel and merciless to that Tang Guo, and that's sufficient to show that her heart is as poisonous as a scorpion. How could she possible care about another's fate?"
"I really feel like it was not worth it for Xue Lang. He should have let Duan Ling Tian teach a lesson to such a woman!"
As soon as Duan Ling Tian finished speaking, Tong Li's body froze, as she knew she couldn't avoid it today.
Presently, the surrounding discussions caused her expression to become even more unsightly.
"Haha...haha...." Hearing the surrounding discussion, Xue Lang struggled to lift his head to glance at Tong Li, and when he noticed Tong Li that was indeed preparing to sneak off, he abruptly started laughing as if he'd gone insane, and he spat out blood as he laughed.
After he finished spitting out a few mouthfuls of blood, he fainted, obviously being seriously enraged.
"Duan Ling Tian, if you dare touch me, then my cousin will surely tear you into pieces...If you're sensible, then let me leave, and maybe I will plead to my cousin to leave your corpse intact!" Tong Li looked at Duan Ling Tian, and even though her eyes emitted terror, she didn't forget to threaten Duan Ling Tian.
"Is that so?" Duan Ling Tian's face revealed a wide grin as he walked out in large strides towards Tong Li.
"You...Don't come any closer!" Tong Li retreated two steps backwards and was slightly seized with panic.
At the same time, on the cafeteria pavilion, a middle-aged man and an old man stood there as they watched this scene from afar.
"Dean, if we still don't stop it, I'm afraid this Tong Li will meet a bad ending." The person that spoke was precisely the grey-clothed old man, or in other words, Paladin Academy's Vice Dean, Zhan Xiong.
Zhan Xiong treated the middle-aged man beside him with the utmost respect and reverence. Within Paladin Academy, the only person who could make Zhan Xiong treat him so respectfully and even address him as Dean would only be the elusive Dean of Paladin Academy.
"Do you think it would be of any use? Based on the enmity that Duan Ling Tian just revealed, even if we were to stop him at this moment, he would probably attack her in the next moment... Could it be that we're able to be by Tong Li's side to protect her at all time?" The middle-aged man shook his head and had a carefree expression. "Moreover, you've heard of the actions of this Tong Li just now. No matter how you put it, that Tang Guo is still a student of my Paladin Academy, but she actually killed her in such a brutal manner. That is virtually an act that would incur the hatred of both humans and the gods!"
Zhan Xiong came to a sudden understanding as he watched the situation develop with a calm gaze, and after a while he gulped down a mouthful of saliva as he said in his heart, "This Duan Ling Tian wouldn't really kill Tong Li, right?"
