Chapter 2375 Killed a Four Tribulation Bodiless Celestial!
At this moment, all the contempt and arrogance could no longer be seen in Li Bing’s eyes as he looked at Duan Ling Tian.
Duan Ling Tian was the current successor of the Fog Rain Progeny, the First Absolute, and the Sect Leader of Seven Absolutes Sect. This meant he had inherited the techniques from Feng Qing Yang. Perhaps, he might not be able to compare to Feng Qing Yang who had killed an Eight Tribulation Bodiless Celestial, but his earlier attack that left narrow and long void cracks was still comparable to a Five Tribulation Bodiless Celestial. Although these void cracks were closing up at a speed that was visible to naked eyes, it would still take fifteen minutes for it to completely close.
‘An Eminent Celestial whose attack is comparable to that of a Five Tribulation Bodiless Celestial…’ Li Bing’s eyes widened in fear as his heart pounded loudly in his chest.
Duan Ling Tian looked at Li Bing indifferently and said, “You’re quite lucky… I’m surprised that the attack didn’t kill you… However, I’m afraid you won’t be as lucky next…” He was calm, and his gaze was dismissive as though nothing in the world was worth his notice.
When Duan Ling Tian had attacked earlier, he had casually attacked in the general direction of Li Bing who had flown higher up into the sky. He did not use his Divine Consciousness to lock on to his target. If he did, Li Bing would not have been able to dodge that attack or survive.
As though it was sentient, after Duan Ling Tian finished speaking, the three-foot-long sword that had flown out and severed Li Bing’s arm turned around and returned to Duan Ling Tian’s hand.
The three-foot-long sword was formed by Duan Ling Tian’s Celestial Origin Energy that was mixed with Saint Origin. When it attacked earlier, it had consumed some of the energy, causing it to lose some of its shine. Now that it had returned to the Duan Ling Tian’s hand and absorbed the energy that was surging out of his body, it regained its shine again.
“Duan Ling Tian, you… You can’t kill me! You can’t kill me!” Li Bing’s face was ashen as he stared at Duan Ling Tian who held the sword and was staring at him coldly.
Li Bing’s voice that was ladened with fear snapped the onlookers back to their senses. They gulped when they recalled Duan Ling Tian severing Li Bing’s arm with just a move. Moreover, based on Li Bing’s words, Duan Ling Tian’s attack was comparable to that of a Five Tribulation Bodiless Celestial!
“Is… Is this a joke? Although Duan Ling Tian’s an Eminent Celestial, his attack is comparable to that of a Five Tribulation Bodiless Celestial?”
“T-that’s impossible, right?”
“Eminent Celestials are as strong as Second Tribulation Bodiless Celestials, right? And Three Tribulation Bodiless Celestials are stronger than Eminent Celestials… To think his attack is comparable to Five Tribulation Bodiless Celestials…”
Many of the elders and disciples from the Fire Worship Sect were dumbfounded. They could not comprehend how Duan Ling Tian’s attack was comparable to a Five Tribulation Bodiless Celestial when he was only an Eminent Celestial.
Even the four Guardians of Fire Worship Sect were stunned even though Gan Ru Yan had already told them that Duan Ling Tian was stronger than Li Bing. After all, seeing was different from just hearing about it.
“Although he’s an Eminent Celestial, his attack is comparable to a Five Tribulation Bodiless Celestial?”
Meanwhile, Feng Tian Wu who was standing next to Ke’er in the distance looked at Duan Ling Tian with amazement in her eyes. ‘Big Brother Duan… He hasn’t even entered the Sword Saint Secret Zone that Ancestor Feng Qing Yang left behind, but his attacks are so formidable even though he’s only an Eminent Celestial.’
As the successor of the Blazing Phoenix Progeny, the Fifth Absolute of the Seven Absolutes Sect, Feng Tian Wu, naturally, knew that Feng Qing Yang had killed an Eight Tribulation Bodiless Celestial when he was just an Eminent Celestial. She would not be surprised that Duan Ling Tian was as strong as Feng Qing Yang if she didn’t know that Duan Ling Tian had yet to enter the Sword Saint Secret Zone.
Feng Tian Wu continued to mull over this matter. “Is it possible that Brother Duan has already entered the Sword Saint Secret Zone? No, that’s impossible. One of the keys to enter the Saint Sword Secret Zone is still with Senior Uncle Prophet… Senior Uncle Prophet said that the successors of the Six Absolutes can also enter the Sword Saint Secret Zone to look for opportunities to improve ourselves. Senior Uncle Prophet would definitely notify us if Big Brother Duan decided to enter the Sword Saint Secret Zone.’ After a while, she concluded that Duan Ling Tian had yet to enter the Sword Saint Secret Zone. ‘Senior Uncle Prophet used to say that even without entering the Sword Saint Secret Zone, when Big Brother Duan becomes an Eminent Celestial and comprehends the basic inheritance, the Sovereign Sword Heart, that was left by Ancestor Feng Qing Yang, his strength would be comparable to a Four Tribulation Bodiless Celestial. However, Big Brother Duan is so much stronger than that. Could he have had some fortuitous encounter? Senior Uncle Prophet really underestimated Big Brother Duan…’
Duan Ling Tian would have been extremely shocked if he could read Feng Tian Wu’s mind. As it turned out, the Sovereign Heart Sword of the Supreme Sword Dao Mental Cultivation Method that he obtained was only a basic inheritance that Sword Saint Feng Qing Yang left behind. The second part of the inheritance that Feng Qing Yang left behind was in a place called the Sword Saint Secret Zone. Most importantly, after he entered and came out from the Sword Saint Secret Zone, his strength would improve to the point where he could also kill Eight Tribulation Bodiless Celestials even though he was only an Eminent Celestial!
When Duan Ling Tian heard Li Bing’s words, he laughed before he sneered at Li Bing. “I can’t kill you? Why can’t I kill you? Because you’re one of the old ancestors of Fire Worship Sect? Have you forgotten that I’m not a member of the sect? It means nothing to me that you’re an old ancestor of the sect.”
“I’m a member of the dragon clan… I have the support of the powerhouses from the dragon clan. You can’t afford to offend any of them!” Li Bing seemed as though he had been given a lifebuoy when he spoke about the dragon clan.
“The dragon clan?” Duan Ling Tian laughed again when he heard Li Bing’s words. “How unexpected for an ancestor of the Fire Worship Sect to identify as a member of the dragon clan at the moment between life and death. So what you’re saying is that you’ve betrayed the Fire Worship Sect and joined the dragon clan?”
As soon as Duan Ling Tian finished speaking, everyone from the Fire Worship Sect shifted their attention to Li Bing. Hints of confusion and incredulity could be seen in their eyes at this moment. None of them expected the old ancestor would say he was a member of the dragon clan. Was he not the old ancestor of Fire Worship Sect? When and how did he become a member of the dragon clan?
“Duan Ling Tian!” Li Bing’s expression darkened when he saw the members of Fire Worship Sect staring at him intently. “You’re the current Sect Leader of Seven Absolutes Sect so you should know what I mean. Why are you feigning innocence?”
“Feigning innocence?” Duan Ling Tian laughed. “Sorry, I don’t understand what you mean. Why don’t you explain to us why you said you’re a member of the dragon clan and why you think the dragon clan would protect you?”
“You!” Li Bing was so infuriated that he almost threw up a mouthful of blood. How could he explain anything? If he explained himself, he would have to reveal the secret of the dragon and phoenix clans being the puppet masters behind the three great sects. If he revealed that, the dragon clan would definitely punish him with the Soul Refinement Penalty to torture him for eighty-one days before killing him! This was the punishment meted out to those who revealed this secret.
Duan Ling Tian’s eyes turned cold when he saw Li Bing keeping quiet. “Since you have nothing to say, I’ll send you off now!” He extended his Divine Consciousness to lock on to Li Bing.
“No!” When Li Bing discovered Duan Ling Tian had used his Divine Consciousness to lock onto him, he was furious and scared. He knew what this meant!
The sound of a sword cry rang in the air as the sword ray flashed past Li Bing’s eyes…
In just a blink of an eye, Li Bing seemed to have lost consciousness. He did not even have time to react.
The members of the Fire Worship Sect, including the Guardians, were shocked.
“Is the old ancestor… dead?”
When Feng Tian Wu saw this, she was stunned as well. ‘To be able to kill so swiftly and cleanly… I’m afraid Big Brother Duan is much stronger than ordinary Five Tribulation Bodiless Celestials.
Duan Ling Tian, the successor of the Fog Rain Progeny and the Sect Leader of Seven Absolutes Sect had killed a powerhouse who was the Guardian of the Fire Worship Sect 4,000 years ago. The powerhouse was Li Bing, a Four Tribulation Bodiless Celestial.
Not only did it cause a commotion in the western region when word of it spread out, but it caused a commotion in the entire Dao Martial Saint Land.
