Chapter 3375: Completely Crushed
Lei Zhen Shan, a Celestial Emperor from the Cold Drizzle Celestial Sect, was a disciple for Lan Heng, the former Sect Leader of the Cold Drizzle Sect. He was also known as the person with the highest cultivation talent in the history of the Cold Drizzle Sect and would most likely be the next titled Celestial Emperor in the sect.
Upon hearing Lei Zhen Shan’s words, how could the Cloudy Sunbow Sword Sect elders and disciples not be shocked? They all knew all about Lei Zhen Shan after all. What was Lei Zhen Shan trying to do? Why did he suddenly sever ties with the Cold Drizzle Sect?
No one expected this from Lei Zhen Shan at all. Moreover, he had moved away from the people of the Cold Drizzle Sect so decisively to show he wanted nothing to do with them.
Even Duan Ling Tian did not expect Lei Zhen Shan to act so decisively. Following that, he ignored Lei Zhen Shan.
At this moment, Feng Tian Wu sent a Voice Transmission to Duan Ling Tian, explaining Lei Zhen Shan’s background.
‘This Lei Zhen Shan must not be simple. He should’ve sensed something. Even then, to think he would betray his master so decisively based on his instinct alone…’ Duan Ling Tian could tell there was more than meets the eye with Lei Zhen Shan.
“Lei Zhen Shan!” Lan Heng roared when he finally regained his senses. Out of everyone present, he was the most shocked by Lei Zhen Shan’s betrayal. He did not expect his disciple would be so treacherous. He glared at his disciple and asked in a low voice, “What do you mean by this?”
At this moment, Lan Ji Nian who had also recovered from his shock looked at Lei Zhen Shan in shock, disbelief, and anger.
“Lan Heng.” Lei Zhen Shan glanced at Lan Heng indifferently and said. “You should be the clearest about what’s happening. In order to let your son Lan Kong Xuan become the Sect Leader of the Cold Drizzle Celestial Sect by intentionally retiring early even if you know I’m much more qualified. Although I don’t care about that position, don’t you think your actions are too despicable? Apart from that, there are many things in the sect that should go to those who deserved them, but you’ve given them all to your son. If I continue to stay in the Cold Drizzle Sect, it’d only hinder my cultivation and path to becoming a titled Celestial Emperor. I’ve long decided to leave, but today seems like a good day to do so.”
“You…” Lan Heng roared. “You treacherous bast*rd! Have you forgotten who took you in and nurtured you?!”
Lei Zhen Shan scoffed. “You think too highly of yourself. Back then, I was clearly more talented than my brother so you took me in while he went to a weaker sect. However, the sect valued him and nurtured him sincerely. Currently, he has grown even stronger than me. If I had gone with him, I’d be so much more powerful than I am now…” He sneered as he continued to say, “I’m not getting involved with your mess today.”
Lei Zhen Shan stood in the distance with his arms crossed as he looked at Lan Heng mockingly. Then, he shifted his gaze to Duan Ling Tian and said, “Sir, if you’re capable, you should kill all of them. I won’t interfere. Naturally, if they’re stronger than you, I won’t intervene as well…”
After listening to Lei Zhen Shan voice out his dissatisfaction, everyone finally understood his sudden and shocking reaction.
“Lei Zhen Shan, I’ll kill you after I deal with this matter,” Lan Heng growled.
“Old man, although you’re slightly stronger than me, it won’t be easy for you to kill me,” Lei Zhen Shan said nonchalantly.
Lan Heng took a deep breath before he turned around. If he fought Lei Zhen Shan now, he would only give those from the Cloudy Sunbow Sword Sect a chance to escape.
As Lan Heng was about to speak, Duan Ling Tian interjected, “Don’t hold back and attack with all your might. I’d like to see how powerful you are since you dare to force my daughter to marry…”
Duan Ling Tian’s purple robe fluttered in the air even though there was no wind. Despite his even tone, everyone could hear the fury simmering beneath his words.
Lan Heng’s expression changed slightly as an ominous feeling rose in his heart. The person in front of him was abnormally calm. Alas, there was no turning back now. Moreover, even if he tried to leave, he was sure his opponent would not allow him to do so.
As soon as Duan Ling Tian finished speaking, Celestial Origin Energy boosted with the law of wind raged around Lan Heng’s body. It looked as though it would mow down everything that stood in its path.
While Feng Tian Wu, Duan Si Ling, and the others watched with grim expressions when Lan Heng erupted with Celestial Origin Energy, Little Gold who was standing behind Duan Ling Tian could not help but chuckle. “He looks like a he’s a Three Talents Celestial Emperor, but he hasn’t even fully comprehended the law of wind!”
It was obvious to Little Gold that not only did Lan Heng not learn how to fused profundities, but the most embarrassing thing was he had not even comprehended all nine profundities from the law of wind. Based on his Celestial Origin Energy, he had only comprehended eight profundities from the law of wind.
“This is all you have, and yet, you dare to force my daughter to marry your grandson?” Duan Ling Tian laughed derisively. With a wave of his hand, a seven-color sword ray appeared. A terrifying energy rippled into the surroundings as soon as they appeared.
Before everyone could react, Duan Ling Tian brandished the Seven Orifices Exquisite Sword and sent the sword rays out.
The sword rays surged up into the sky before they fell like flower petals, forming a cage around Lan Heng and Lang Ji Nian.
Duan Ling Tian laughed at that point. With a wave of his right hand, a seven-colored sword ray appeared. Obviously, it is his Seven Orifices Exquisite Sword. Waves of terrifying aura could be felt as soon as it appeared.
Before everyone could come back to their senses, Duan Ling Tian shook his sword and a beam of seven-colored energy surged up into the air. Then, they fall to the ground like petals of flowers falling from the sky.
Shortly after, it formed a huge seven-colored cage and trapped Lan Heng and Lan Ji Nian inside it. Following that, the pressure in the cage began to grow heavier and heavier.
When Lan Ji Nian turned pale and vomited blood, Lan Heng’s expression turned even more unsightly.
“Nian’er!” Lan Heng hurriedly moved to Lan Ji Nian, trying to use his Divine Consciousness to help ease the pressure on Lan Ji Nian. Then, he sneered as he said to Duan Ling Tian, “You’re merely a One Basic Celestial Emperor. Even if you have an Emperor Grade Celestial Weapon and have comprehended the law of space, do you think it’s enough to beat me?”
“Idiot!” Duan Ling Tian said indifferently. At the same time, the seven-color cage began to shrink.
“I will break these restraints now!” Lan Heng cried out. Green energy surged out of his body like a storm as he tried to break free of the cage. Alas, his energy was overwhelmed by the space energy in the cage.
At this moment, Lan Heng spat out a mouthful of blood. His face was deathly pale at this moment, and his eyes were filled with fear as he looked at Duan Ling Tian, “F-fused Profundity? Y-you learned how to fuse profundities?”
All of Lan Heng’s confidence had been crushed at this point. How could he be a match for someone who not only comprehended fused profundities, but it was fused profundities from the law of space as well, one of the Four Supreme Laws! He could not help but wonder about the purple-clad figure in front of him. Who was he? He was just a One Basic Celestial Emperor, but he had already learned to fuse profundities?
Meanwhile, Duan Ling Tian looked at Lan Heng coldly.
At the same time, nine spatial tears appeared on one side of the seven-color cage.
Whoosh! Whoosh! Whoosh! Whoosh! Whoosh!
Nine sword rays from the Cross-Dimensional Slash Profundity shot out Lan Heng.
This was a Fused Profundity Duan Ling Tian created with the help of the Supreme Powerhouse Divinity. It was the combination of the Cross-Dimensional Slash and the Space Elemental Profundity. With this, he had more control over the number, intensity, range of the sword rays.
“No!” The defenseless Lan Heng cried out in despair. His legs were severed before they were crushed into pulp by the space energy.
Another sharp sword cry rang in the air as Lan Heng’s arm was severed. Blood spurted out immediately; it made for a shocking and terrifying sight.
At this moment, Lan Heng was filled with pain, remorse, and despair. Why did he come here? If he knew there was someone like that helping the fourth-grade Cloudy Sunbow Sword Sect, he would not have force Duan Si Ling to marry his grandson.
“Don’t worry… The Cold Drizzle Celestial Sect will accompany you in death,” Duan Ling Tian said tonelessly as though he was commenting on the weather.
Lan Heng’s eyes widened in horror immediately.
Meanwhile, Lan Ji Nian’s face had paled even more. He did not expect the father of the woman he had taken a liking to was such a powerful person. Even his grandfather was powerless against that person!
