Chapter 274: Shao Fei's Obstruction
Translator: KurazyTolanzuraytor Editor: Lucas
"Courting death!" A trace of a sneer and disdain appeared on the corners of Shao Fei's mouth when he heard what Duan Ling Tian said and saw Duan Ling Tian's actions, and he had a face full of taking pleasure on Duan Ling Tian's misfortune.
A mere first level Origin Core martial artist wanted to deal with a fourth level Origin Core Stage Elephant Rhino?
As far as he was concerned, this pretty boy was simply overestimating himself! And he was virtually courting death!
"Shao Fei, it's already come to this and you're still taking pleasure on his misfortune!" Hu Li glanced at Shao Fei in dissatisfaction, then he looked at Duan Ling Tian. "Duan Ling Tian, quickly come back! That Elephant Rhino isn't something you can deal with."
"Don't worry." Duan Ling Tian heard Shi Lan and Hu Li's concern and turned around to lightly smile to them.
"Hu Li, he's rushing to get himself killed. There's no need for you to stop him," Shao Fei said indifferently, as if he eagerly looked forward to Duan Ling Tian dying under the tusks of the Elephant Rhino.
"Shao Fei, you're going too far!" Shi Lan shouted out angrily, and her beautiful face flushed red as she said to Hu Li. "Hu Li, I'm going to help Duan Ling Tian!"
Hu Li replied and wanted to go together with Shi Lan to help Duan Ling Tian.
Duan Ling Tian instead shook his head. "You two just watch, I alone am sufficient to deal with this Elephant Rhino."
Hu Li and Shi Lan couldn't help but be stunned when they heard this.
He alone is sufficient?
"Duan Ling Tian, now isn't the time to try and be brave!" Shi Lan and Hu Li practically said at the same time.
"Haha.... Looks like you are rather confident, pretty boy. Let me see how you deal with this Elephant Rhino by yourself." Shao Fei laughed in ridicule as he looked at Duan Ling Tian, then he looked at Hu Li and Shi Lan. "Shi Lan, Hu Li, you two have good intentions.... But unfortunately, it was refused by him. Since he wants to court death, then you two should help him fulfil his wish."
Duan Ling Tian directly ignored what Shao Fei said, then he nodded to Shi Lan and Hu Li before turning around and dashing towards the Elephant Rhino.
"Shi Lan, let's go! We'll go help him." Hu Li called Shi Lan even though Duan Ling Tian said that he didn't need their help, but how could they look on and do nothing?
As far as they were concerned, Duan Ling Tian was their companion, and they would absolutely not cast Duan Ling Tian aside.
However, right when they were about to move out.
When their gazes touched upon Duan Ling Tian's location far off into the distance, they completely froze....
What had they seen?
As Duan Ling Tian dashed on the way towards the Elephant Rhino, the energy of heaven and earth roiled above him and actually condensed into 40 ancient mammoth silhouettes....
The strength of 40 ancient mammoths!
This was the sign of the third level of the Origin Core Stage.
In other words, Duan Ling Tian was actually a third level Origin Core martial artist!
This pleasant surprise that suddenly appeared caused Shi Lan and Hu Li's hearts to tremble, and disbelief appeared on their faces.
They both glanced at each other and were able to see the shock in each other's eyes.
They didn't overlook the most important point: Duan Ling Tian's age was at most around 20, and he even might not be 20 yet!
A third level Origin Core martial artist that was around 20. What notion was this?
Even in the entire Seven Star Sword Sect, such natural talent could be considered to be a first-rate genius disciple.
Their heartbeats abruptly quickened, and they were happy and alarmed.
They were happy that Duan Ling Tian actually wasn't a first level Origin Core martial artist, he was a third level Origin Core martial artist!
They were alarmed because even though Duan Ling Tian was a third level Origin Core martial artist, he still wasn't a match for the fourth level Origin Core Stage Elephant Rhino.
"How could this be possible?!" Shao Fei stared blankly at the 40 ancient mammoth silhouettes above Duan Ling Tian and had a face full of disbelief.
This pretty boy, how could he possibly have such a formidable strength!
His face went gloomy.
As far as he was concerned, Duan Ling Tian's natural talent had far surpassed his....
When he was at this age, his cultivation was far from this level.
Instantly, his chest was filled with envy.
His face was gloomy as he gazed at Duan Ling Tian's figure that flashed towards the Elephant Rhino, and his eyes flickered with a cold light and the corners of his mouth curled into a sneer. "So what if you're at the third level of the Origin Core Stage? Aren't you still going to die beneath the tusks of the Elephant Rhino!?"
As far as he was concerned, it was impossible for a third level Origin Core martial artist to survive under the tusks of the Elephant Rhino.
"Hu Li, Duan Ling Tian is at the third level of the Origin Core Stage like us.... Even if the three of us aren't able to kill the Elephant Rhino when we join forces, we ought to be able to force it to retreat!" After finding out about Duan Ling Tian's true cultivation level, Shi Lan's eyes shone as she looked at Hu Li, and a trace of joy appeared on her elegant face.
"OK!" Hu Li nodded and dashed out with Shi Lan.
If three third level Origin Core martial artists were to join forces, they indeed were likely to force the Elephant Rhino to retreat.
However, Shi Lan's and Hu Li's figures that flashed out stopped in next to no time because there was a figure that flashed towards them and obstructed them, not allowing them to help Duan Ling Tian.
"Shao Fei, what is the meaning of this?" Hu Li's face went gloomy. Now he'd seen that Duan Ling Tian had started to fight the Elephant Rhino and was using a profound movement technique to tangle with the Elephant Rhino.
As far as he was concerned, if he were to be a little later, it would be very likely that Duan Ling Tian would lose his life!
"Shao Fei, what's us going to help Duan Ling Tian got to do with you? Don't go too far!" Shi Lan never thought Shao Fei would obstruct them as well, and her beautiful face went grim. Her pair of beautiful eyes flickered with a lustre of rage as he stared fixedly at Shao Fei.
"Shi Lan, Hu Li, it isn't that I'm intentionally obstructing the two of you.... I'm only helping that pretty boy. Didn't he say that he didn't need your help? Since it's like that, as a member of this small team, I naturally have to help him obstruct the two of you so that you two don't steal away his limelight." Shao Fei grinned widely, grinning brilliantly with a face full of righteous indignation.
As if he really was kindheartedly helping Duan Ling Tian.
But Shao Fei's smile in the eyes of Hu Li and Shi Lan was so hypocritical....
"Shao Fei, it's fine if you don't want to help Duan Ling Tian, but you still stop us from helping him. Is it because you have to see him dead before you can be happy?" Hu Li's eyes were crimson red, and he raised his hand to grasp ahold of his sheathed sword on his back, ready to draw his sword at any moment.
"Shao Fei, get out of the way!" Shi Lan's voice had a trace of icy-cold rage mixed within, and in her hand, a three-foot-long blade appeared out of thin air.
"What? You two want to attack me? Do the two of you think you are a match for me?" The corners of Shao Fei's mouth curled into a sneer, and in his hand, a dark green spirit sword appeared out of thin air....
"Don't you two forget, not only does my cultivation far surpass the two of you, even the spirit sword in my hand is a grade seven spirit sword!" Shao Fei's face had a sense of disdain mixed within it as he looked at Hu Li and Shi Lan.
As far as he was concerned, not to mention Hu Li and Shi Lan, even if Hu Li, Shi Lan, and the pretty boy joined forces, it still would be impossible for them to be a match for him.
"If you still don't get out of the way, then we won't pull our punches." Shi Lan's beautiful face had traces of rage on it, and she loathed Shao Fei's current actions from the bottom of her heart. How could she have not noticed in the past that this Shao Fei was such an atrocious person?
Today, she could be considered to have witnessed Shao Fei's true face!
"Shao Fei, get out of the way!" Hu Li had an agitated expression, and his three-foot-long blade left its sheath to enter his hands.
"What? You two really want to make a move against me? Then let me see if you two have improved lately." Shao Fei started laughing, and his smile contained traces of disdain.
Shi Lan and Hu Li couldn't hold back any longer and directly swung their swords to flash towards Shao Fei.
Shao Fei seemed as if he was playing with the two of them, and their swords were easily parried by Shao Fei's sword....
Moreover not to mention the fact that the grade seven spirit sword in his hand far surpassed the grade eight spirit swords in the hands of Shi Lan and Hu Li.
In terms of strength, he was a fourth level Origin Core martial artist, and compared to the two of them, who were third level Origin Core martial artists, he had an entire strength of 20 ancient mammoths more than them!
Under his sword, Shi Lan and Hu Li were no different than children.
Presently, Duan Ling Tian was using a cultivation at the third level of the Origin Core Stage to execute the Spirit Serpent Movement Technique and flash around the Elephant Rhino.
Every time, he would safely dodge past the Elephant Rhino's ram.
The sharp tusks of the Elephant Rhino had shaved past Duan Ling Tian's outer court disciple's attire many times as it flashed past, but it wasn't even able to touch the corners of Duan Ling Tian's clothes.
"Roar!" The Elephant Rhino finally was enraged and went berserk!
At this time, Duan Ling Tian didn't dare continue playing with the Elephant Rhino by executing the Spirit Serpent Movement Technique with a strength at the third level of the Origin Core Stage, as the current Elephant Rhino had already completely revealed the speed it should have as a fourth level Origin Core Stage fierce beast....
The speed that it revealed with the strength of 60 ancient mammoths was far from something he could match with the speed he revealed when using the strength of 40 ancient mammoths!
Instantly, 60 ancient mammoth silhouettes appeared above Duan Ling Tian. Now, dodging the attacks of the Elephant Rhino was accomplished by him with ease.
"Hmm?" Suddenly, the sounds of weapons clashing entered his ears, and Duan Ling Tian frowned. Could it be that Shi Lan and the others have encountered danger?
When he flipped his body to leap onto the Elephant Rhino's back, he glanced over and saw a scene that made him incomparably enraged.
"Shao Fei!" Duan Ling Tian's face sank. He was able to perceive that Shao Fei was playing tricks on Shi Lan and Hu Li.
Moreover Shao Fei's aim was apparent. It was to stop Shi Lan and Hu Li from helping him.
Although he didn't require the help of Shi Lan and Hu Li, Shao Fei's current actions still completely enraged him....
"I originally wanted to play with you for a while, but now I don't have the time to play with you anymore!" Duan Ling Tian looked at the Elephant Rhino beneath his feet and his eyes went cold.
Instantly, 20 of the 60 ancient mammoth silhouettes above him vanished into thin air and once again declined sharply to 40....
Duan Ling Tian once again controlled his strength at the strength of 40 ancient mammoths!
Comparable to an ordinary third level Origin Core martial artist!
A three-foot-long blade appeared out of thin air in Duan Ling Tian's hand.
This three-foot-long blade was precisely the sword that he refined in the Swallow Mountain County's County City when he had a life wager by weapons refinement with the Zhu Clan's Second Elder.... And it was able to amplify his strength by 20%
Duan Ling Tian attacked out with his sword.
The strength of a grade eight spirit sword bloomed out, and the 40 ancient mammoth silhouettes above him instantly became 48....
His sword flashed out as if transforming into a bolt of lightning that descended onto the head of the Elephant Rhino.
The Sword encountered an extremely strong resistance at the spot where it descended.
"The skin of this Elephant Rhino is really thick." Duan Ling Tian frowned.
