Chapter 556: Saber Young Master, Fifth Level Void Prying Stage!
Duan Ling Tian stood there and became the center of attention of the entire audience.
Everyone was curious about who would Duan Ling Tian choose as his opponent.
Finally, Duan Ling Tian’s gaze flashed past Su Li, Long Yun, and Luo Zhan.
"Luo Zhan!" In the end, his gaze fixed onto Luo Zhan.
"Duan Ling Tian is challenging Luo Zhan?" Many people were dumbstruck.
They never imagined that Duan Ling Tian would challenge Luo Zhan.
Especially the group of young geniuses from the Dragon and Phoenix Academy, as they knew of the relationship between Duan Ling Tian and Luo Zhan.
Luo Zhan and Duan Ling Tian were friends.
Unlike the surprise of the others, Luo Zhan wasn’t surprised in the slightest.
Along with the numerous gazes moving from Luo Zhan onto Duan Ling Tian.
"I admit defeat." Luo Zhan spoke indifferently with a calm expression on his face.
It was as if admitting defeat was nothing to him.
In reality, during the genius competition this time, so long as any one of them were able to win a battle, they would be able to obtain the position to head towards the Darkstone Empire.
After all, there were only six people competing for five positions.
When they saw Luo Zhan admit defeat, it caused most of the people present to be slightly surprised.
These people were the people that thought the reason the Black Fiend Sect’s Sun Rui had died at Duan Ling Tian’s hand earlier was because Sun Rui had lost his mind, whereas the others that knew of Duan Ling Tian’s abilities weren’t surprised.
As far as they were concerned, even the sixth level Void Prying Stage Sun Rui had died at the hands of Duan Ling Tian, so it was impossible for Crazy Young Master to be a match for Duan Ling Tian.
"Since it’s like this, the possessor of lot number three, Duan Ling Tian, is considered to have won this round!" Chi Ming nodded then said, "Now, the possessor of lot number four, please enter the battlefield… You may choose anyone!"
Chi Ming’s words were extremely clear.
The possessor of lot number four was able to challenge Duan Ling Tian or Luo Zhan.
After all, the two of them didn’t fight and had no consumption of strength.
The possessor of lot number four was precisely Saber Young Master, Long Yun.
Long Yun took a step out, and his gaze that was fierce like a saber almost didn’t look at anyone as it shot directly at Duan Ling Tian, and he said with a grim voice, "Duan Ling Tian, you ought to return what you owe me from all those years ago!"
Duan Ling Tian smiled as he shrugged, then he said indifferently, "If you’re confident, then come at me."
"Hmph! Intentionally trying to mislead others!" Long Yun’s gaze went slightly cold as he took a step forward, and his imposing manner shot out like a rainbow.
At the instant he stepped out, the Origin Energy on his body rages and emitted a peerless and fierce aura…
At this moment, Long Yun seemed to have transformed into an enormous saber that was matchlessly sharp.
Right at this moment, 7,000 ancient mammoth silhouettes appeared out of thin air above Long Yun.
"Fifth level of the Void Prying Stage!" This scene caused most of the people present to have shocked expressions.
No one had imagined that Saber Young Master would have actually already broken through to the fifth level of the Void Prying Stage now.
He was the existence that was ranked at the end amongst the five great young masters.
The faces of Luo Zhan, Sword Young Master, and Flame Young Master sank.
Never had they imagined that the Saber Young Master that they squashed down beneath them had actually surpassed
Especially Flame Young Master, Zhang Yan.
As the second ranked amongst the five great young master, first he was defeated by Sword Young Master who was ranked the fourth, and now he saw that Saber Young Master had revealed a cultivation at the fifth level of the Void Prying Stage.
Embarrassment arose within his heart.
"That Zither Young Master, Zi Shang, has a mysterious and unfathomable Master… His accomplishments now are surely not inferior to mine! Could it be that I’m bound to be the existence at the bottom of the five great young masters?" Zhang Yan shook his head endlessly as he was unwilling to believe that all this was real.
He was the third prince of the Azure Forest Imperial Kingdom, a genius!
He was the person with the strongest natural talent in the younger generation of the Azure Forest Imperial Kingdom’s younger generation.
He carried the glory of the Imperial Family on his back, and he wasn’t someone that anyone could step on!
Unknowingly, Zhang Yan’s fists clenched together tightly, and strands of faint blue colored strong energy flickered on his body.
Suddenly, the blue colored energy trembled and a fine change occurred on it.
It was this fine change that caused Zhang Yan to suddenly awaken, and his eyes lit up with a dazzling bright light.
"My Force has stepped into the stage of Half-step Advanced Force?" Zhang Yan’s heart shook as he revealed a violently delighted expression.
But unfortunately, the attention of most of the people present were on the Saber Young Master, Long Yun.
Very few people noticed the 500 ancient mammoth silhouettes that flashed in the sky above Zhang Yan.
"Half-step Advanced Force?" Duan Ling Tian’s brows raised.
His acute Spiritual Force caused his to notice the changes in Zhang Yan at the first possible.
"This Flame Young Master has some ability…" Duan Ling Tian thought to himself.
As for the fact that Saber Young Master was a fifth level Void Prying Stage martial artist, he wasn’t surprised by it.
Early on when Saber Young Master had just made an appearance, his Spiritual Force had already detected Saber Young Master’s cultivation.
When Duan Ling Tian saw a spirit saber suddenly appear in the hands of Saber Young Master, and Saber Young Master’s Origin Energy skyrocket, causing a little over 9,600 ancient mammoth silhouettes to condense into form above him before accumulating strength while waiting to be deployed…
At practically the exact same instant, a dim light flashed into appearance in the depths of Duan Ling Tian’s eyes.
His Spiritual Force fused into the soul brand that was deep within his soul.
Duan Ling Tian executed his soul skill at the first possible moment.
"Saber Young Master has actually broken through to the fifth level of the Void Prying Stage… Looks like Duan Ling Tian is going to suffer!"
"Yeah, unless Saber Young Master loses his mind like that Black Fiend Sect’s Sun Rui… Otherwise, Duan Ling Tian will lose for sure!"
"Hmph! It was only luck that Duan Ling Tian won in the battle against Sun Rui!"
The surrounding crowd of spectators whispered in discussion.
Of course, there were also people that knew of Duan Ling Tian’s ability and felt this battle was without suspense.
"It’s truly surprising that Saber Young Master has broken through to the fifth level of the Void Prying Stage… However, he can only consider himself to be unfortunate for encountering Duan Ling Tian." Luo Zhan and Chen Shao Shuai looked each other in the eye as they spoke via voice transmission.
"I truly never imagined that amongst our five great young masters, it actually the person that was ranked at the end that broke through to the fifth level of the Void Prying Stage first." Chen Shao Shuai had an extremely complicated gaze.
"Duan Ling Tian!" Along with Saber Young Master’s explosive shout, his entire body seemed to have transformed into a gust of wind that rushed towards Duan Ling Tian in full fury.
The Origin Energy on spirit saber in his hand revolved out, transforming into a demonic lotus that had strands of fierce and peerless aura on it.
That was the aura of Force.
Right at this moment, another 500 ancient mammoth silhouettes appeared in the sky above Long Yun.
Half-step Advanced Saber Force!
At almost an instant, the 500 ancient mammoth silhouettes that had just appeared fused into one with the other 9,000 over ancient mammoth silhouettes, transforming into an ancient horned dragon silhouette!
Obviously, this saber strike of Long Yun contained the strength of an ancient horned dragon!
"Half-step Advanced Saber Force!" At the instant that Long Yun attacked, the pupils of the people that saw through the stage of the Saber Force Long Yun executed couldn’t help but constrict.
"Not only has this Saber Young Master’s cultivation surpassed Crazy Young Master, Sword Young Master, and Flame Young Master, even the Force he has comprehended isn’t inferior to them."
"I originally thought that Saber Young Master had acquired a fortuitous encounter and might have obtained something like a spirit fruit to possess his shocking cultivation, and his comprehension of Force ought to be far inferior to Crazy Young Master and the others. Now it would seem like I’ve underestimated Saber Young Master."
"Saber Young Master had once lost at the hands of Duan Ling Tian many years ago. He ought to be able to wash away his shame today!"
Many people sighed with emotion.
But in next to no time, their expressions changed.
They became dumbstruck.
At almost an instant, the pupils of everyone present had constricted.
What have I seen?
The saber in Long Yun’s hand carried along the might to split a mountain as it descended onto Duan Ling Tian.
Right at this moment.
Long Yun suddenly held his sword as he changed direction, and his figure flashed towards another side.
Origin Energy abruptly skyrocketed atop the grade six spirit saber Long Yun held in his hand, and when looked at from afar, the entire spirit saber seemed to have expanded to transform into an enormous saber.
Demonic Lotusblade Technique!
The enormous saber left his hand, transforming into an enormous lotus that flashed out to collide onto the block of stone at the side of the drill ground.
Instantly, the block of stone was directly shattered, and only stone fragments that covered the sky remained.
"This…" The people present were completely dumbstruck when they saw the scene before them, and they were at a complete loss for words.
Within their field of vision, Saber Young Master was no different than the Black Fiend Sect’s Sun Rui from before, both of them had avoided Duan Ling Tian of their own accord and attacked an empty place.
"Could it be that Saber Young Master has lost his mind as well?"
"Isn’t this too much of a coincidence?"
The surrounding spectators looked at each other and had expressions of astonishment.
Everything before their eyes caused them to feel as if they were dreaming.
Not to mention that Black Fiend Sect’s Sun Rui had lost his mind, even Saber Young Master lost his mind now as well?
Was there such a coincidental thing in the world?
"I remember now!" Suddenly, a Dragon and Phoenix Academy student exclaimed in shock.
After he successfully attracted the gazes of many people, he said with a terrified expression, "According to my knowledge, Flute Fairy had once said that Duan Ling Tian knew demonic techniques one year ago… At that time, it was as if Flute Fairy was lost within Duan Ling Tian’s demonic technique and was unable to free herself from it."
"But, at that time, all of us thought that Flute Fairy was working together with Duan Ling Tian to put on an act, and we didn’t take it seriously. Now that I think of this, perhaps all of these have connected greatly."
As soon as this person finished speaking, it aroused the same feelings in the numerous students from the Dragon and Phoenix Academy.
"I remember it now as well… Demonic technique! Duan Ling Tian has surely utilized his demonic technique!’
"This demonic technique is too terrifying! Even if it was Sun Rui, an existence at the sixth level of the Void Prying Stage, he was actually unable to escape from being affected by it."
"Even a sixth level Void Prying Stage martial artist was affect by Duan Ling Tian. Saber Young Master is only at the fifth level of the Void Prying Stage, so he’s naturally unable to escape it!"
Under the focused gazes of everyone present, Duan Ling Tian walked out in large strides and easily stood behind Long Yun.
Subsequently, Duan Ling Tian casually swung his entire arm.
His arm smashed out, and he only used less than half his strength to fiercely blast flying Sword Young Master, who was completely unguarded.
Subsequently, Long Yun fell to the ground in a sorry state, and his face was covered in dust and dirt.
Meanwhile, he returned to his senses, and his face had an expression of shock when he saw Duan Ling Tian standing completely unharmed before him.
