Translator: / KurazyTolanzuraytor Editor: Lucas
"Are you OK?"
Li Fei's head smashed onto Duan Ling Tian's chest. She was without a scratch. She lifted her head and looked at Duan Ling Tian with concern.
Duan Ling Tian's desperate measures to save her were still vivid in her mind.
He had deeply moved her.
"Big Sister, can you get down off me first. You're so heavy, you should lose some weight..."
Duan Ling Tian laughed bitterly, then the piercing pain coming from his back caused his cold sweat to pour out.
Luckily, he had cultivated to the ninth level of the Body Tempering Stage, so his flesh and bones had undergone a metamorphosis that was far above an ordinary ninth level Body Tempering martial artists, so he didn't really injure his muscles and bones.
Li Fei's face blushed.
She was puzzled in her heart. Was she really that heavy?
Under the dubious gazes casted over, Li Fei got off Duan Ling Tian.
"You... are your injuries serious?"
She extended her hand and helping Duan Ling Tian up. When she noticed that the flesh on Duan Ling Tian's back was ripped open, her expression instantly turned pale.
"Don't worry, I won't die."
Duan Ling Tian heaved a sigh of relief, shakily standing up.
Li Fei was silent for a moment before she said, "Thank you!"
"Can I get something more realistic..."
Duan Ling Tian slyly smiled.
"What do you want?"
Li Fei was dazed.
"How about you pledge yourself to me..."
Duan Ling Tian's gaze burned once more.
Li Fei blushed; it was as if her face would drip blood at any moment.
The judges' light cough sounded, destroying the romantic atmosphere around the two of them.
"The two of you, do you still want to continue?"
Obviously, the judge couldn't bear to continue watching the two lovers tease and flirt with each other.
"No need, I admit defeat."
Li Fei shook her head, following which she supported Duan Ling Tian down the combat arena in a careful manner, afraid that she might affect Duan Ling Tian's injuries.
"Are you alright?"
Ke Er and Li Shi Shi greeted him with an expression filled with worry.
For a moment, Duan Ling Tian was surrounded by three girls.
Innumerable gazes of jealousy and envy shot at Duan Ling Tian from all around.
Every man that was present wished the one injured wasn't Duan Ling Tian but themselves instead...
"Fei Fei, are you alright?" LI Qing arrived beside Li Fei as he asked concernedly.
"Li Qing, how many times have I told you to call me Li Fei?"
Li Fei frowned as she was slightly displeased. She concentrated on working together with Ke Er to help Duan Ling Tian dress the wound on his back...
From start to finish, she didn't even glance at Li Qing.
Li Qing's expression turned gloomy as he took a deep breath.
"Duan Ling Tian, I hope this small injury won't cause you to forfeit your battles later on."
Li Qing's gloomy gaze descended upon Duan Ling Tian.
"Don't worry, my target is becoming the champion."
Duan Ling Tian looked Li Qing in the eye without a shred of fear.
Li Qing turned around and left after snorting coldly.
He was afraid that if he stayed there for a moment longer, he would be unable to restrain himself from trying to kill Duan Ling Tian.
After the danger to Li Fei was resolved, the attention of the people present moved towards Duan Ling Tian.
Today, Duan Ling Tian gave them an immense shock.
Firstly defeating a Core Formation inner court disciple with a cultivation of the ninth level of the Body Tempering Stage.
Afterwards, he even drew upon the forces of heaven and earth and formed two ancient mammoth silhouettes...
Possessing the strength of two ancient mammoths at the ninth level of the Body Tempering Stage.
This was something that they had never heard of before!
But even this wasn't the end of it.
In the end, to save Li Fei from danger.
Duan Ling Tian exploded forth once more, even causing the third ancient mammoth silhouette to appear...
Since the beginning, they hadn't once seen Duan Ling Tian use Origin Energy.
In other words.
Duan Ling at the ninth level of the Body Tempering Stage possessed the strength of three ancient mammoths.
If they didn't see it with their own two eyes, they wouldn't believe that what they saw was real even if someone beat them to death.
"No wonder Duan Ling Tian proclaimed he would compete for the champion prize; it turned out that he was so strong."
"Yeah, although Li Qing is at the second level of the Core Formation Stage, Li Qing at full strength is only comparable to the strength of three ancient mammoths... based on this fact, Duan Ling Tian isn't one bit inferior to him."
"Moreover, Duan Ling Tian's martial skills are all extremely formidable, so defeating Li Qing isn't impossible."
"I believe in Duan Ling Tian as well."
Among the crowd's whispers and discussions, many people looked favorably towards Duan Ling Tian.
These words in Li Qing's ears were exceptionally piercing.
His expression turned gloomy as killing intent flashed in his eyes, clenching his fist tightly until the veins in his fist jumped about...
"Duan Ling Tian!"
Even though Duan Ling Tian possessing the strength of three ancient mammoths caused him to be shocked, he still looked down upon Duan Ling Tian.
As far as he was concerned, Duan Ling Tian was only a little kid in the end, and having this sort of strength would undoubtedly be due to some sort of fortuitous gain.
He was only just a lucky Branch Family disciple.
How could he be a match for him, this genius of the Li Clan.
"I didn't expect that this Duan Ling Tian had concealed such strength. Being defeated by him isn't an injustice anymore."
Li Zhong had a complicated gaze as he sighed.
Following which he looked towards the dumbstruck Li Xiao beside him.
"Behave yourself properly from now on; don't go offend him anymore! He isn't someone we can offend."
Li Zhong warned.
Li Xiao bitterly laughed as he nodded.
"I didn't expect his true strength to be so formidable; to think I even took him for an opponent at the beginning."
As Li Yuan looked at the violet-clothed youth that was far away, his mood couldn't calm down for a long time.
He originally thought that cultivating his Unfettered Steps to the Mastery Stage would be enough to defeat Duan Ling Tian.
But now it would seem that this was just a joke.
On the high platform.
"I didn't expect that this Duan Ling Tian was capable of utilizing the strength of three ancient mammoths by relying upon a cultivation of the ninth level of the Body Tempering Stage..."
Patriarch Li Ao's expression was slightly serious.
Duan Ling Tian's real strength was completely exceeding his expectations.
"According to common sense, he would surely have gotten some sort of fortuitous gain, obtaining some type of natural treasure which allowed him to gain his abnormal strength," an elderly person on the side guessed.
"I think so too."
The white-eyebrowed old man nodded in agreement.
The Clan Martial Meet continued.
"Li Qing, Li Fei!"
The judge's voice sounded out.
For a moment, everyone's gazes descended upon Li Fei, who was helping Duan Ling Tian tend to his injuries.
"I admit defeat."
Li Fei didn't even raise her head, continuing to carefully tend to Duan Ling Tian's injury.
"LI Qing is victorious!"
Although Li Qing won, he didn't have a trace of pleasure on his face.
His gloomy gaze never left the nearby violet-clothed youth.
Not far away.
"I hope Duan Ling Tian meets with Li Qing first."
Li An's heart was restless and worried.
When Duan Ling Tian made his move and drew upon the forces of heaven and earth to form three ancient mammoth silhouettes, he felt a wave of powerlessness in his heart.
He knew his own limitations.
Duan Ling Tian wasn't someone he could deal with.
"Brother An, this Duan Ling Tian really deeply concealed his strength."
The green-clothed youth beside him shuddered at the thought about when he nearly attacked Duan Ling Tian the other day.
Thinking about it now, cold sweat poured out of his forehead.
After Ke Er and Li Fei had tended to his wounds, Duan Ling Tian consumed a Grade Nine Gold Injury Pill, and his injuries finally started recovering.
After all, he didn't injure any muscles or bones, so he quickly recovered. His injuries had healed to a degree that wouldn't affect his following battles.
"Duan Ling Tian, Li An!"
The judge's voice sounded at this moment.
Li An's face instantly turned slightly grim.
What he was worried the most about really happened.
When Duan Ling Tian was about to go up to the combat arena, Li Fei lightly reminded him.
"Looks like getting injured like this was worth it. Don't worry, I won't let anything happen to myself. I still have lots of things I haven't done..."
Duan Ling Tian glanced at Li Fei with a burning gaze. Only when she gave him a disdainful glance did he finally go up to the combat arena.
Li Shi Shi held Ke Er's hand and dragged her to a corner, avoiding Li Fei before asking, in a low voice, "Ke Er, this Duan Ling Tian is a philanderer. Aren't you angry?"
"Big Sister Shi Shi, as long a corner of the Young Master's heart is mine, I'll be satisfied."
Ke Er lightly smiled.
Hearing what she said, Li Shi Shi was speechless.
Where did this Duan Ling Tian get such charm to cause Ke Er to be so committed towards him?
On the combat arena.
Duan Ling Tian looked at Li An with a tranquil expression.
Li An took a deep breath. His mind was filled with the scene of Duan Ling Tian drawing upon the forces of heaven and earth to form three ancient mammoth silhouettes...
Duan Ling Tian's strength was comparable to someone at the second level of the Core Formation Stage!
As for martial skills cultivation stage, he was not one bit inferior to him.
"I admit defeat!"
Although unwilling, Li An still made this decision.
If they were to battle, he didn't know how Duan Ling Tian would react towards him. If he purposefully attacked ruthlessly, it wouldn't be worth it.
He didn't dare to take this gamble.
Immediately, the surroundings sounded with loud booing.
Li An's strength was publically acknowledged as number two in the entire LI Clan younger generation.
But now he didn't even have the courage to battle Duan Ling Tian.
Noticing the disdainful gazes from the surroundings, Li An took a deep breath and suppressed the shame and anger in his heart.
His eyes that were filled with hate and ice coldness swept pass Duan Ling Tian.
"Li An, Li Qing!'
After a few more battles, the judge's voice sounded once more.
This time, Li An directly admitted defeat once again.
Li Qing was victorious!
As time went by, night soon fell.
"Li Qing, Duan Ling Tian!"
The most brilliant moment that everyone looked forward to had finally arrived.
Two youths who possessed the strength of three ancient mammoths were going to lift this year's Clan Martial Meet to its peak climax...
His white clothes drifting in the wind, Li Qing was already waiting on the combat arena.
His condescending gaze descended upon Duan Ling Tian, full of disdain and contempt.
"This Li Qing is really arrogant!"
Duan Ling Tian's expression was slightly gloomy.
But just when he was about to walk out and enter the combat arena...
"Duan Ling Tian!"
A condensed voice entered his ears.
But he quickly noticed that the surrounding people seemed to not notice the voice.
In other words, only he could hear this voice.
Through Rebirth Martial Emperor's, Duan Ling Tian found out.
Martial artists with a cultivation level above the seventh level of the Origin Core Stage were all capable of condensing their Origin Energy into sound before condensing the sound into a line.
The owner of the voice was none other than the Li Clan's Patriarch, Li Ao.
Duan Ling Tian slightly lifted his head to look at Li Ao, who was on the high platform. He had a puzzled expression, wondering what Li Ao wanted.
Li Ao was also looking at him.
"Duan Ling Tian, this battle, I hope you can admit defeat..."
What Li Ao said caused Duan Ling Tian to frown.
His target was the champion's prize, the three-hundred-fifty-year-old Blood Lingzhi. Asking him to let go of it now was something he couldn't do.
"I know asking this will make it difficult on you, but I promise you, I will privately compensate the champion's prizes to you. How about it?"
Li Ao's voice transmitted into his ears once more.
