Chapter 551 - Killing With A Single Blow
"Bullsh*t!" Sun Rui glanced at Duan Ling Tian in disdain, and then he sneered. "One move, I only need one move and I’ll be able to send you to hell!"
As soon as Sun Rui finished speaking, his body flashed out as if he’d transformed into a bolt of lightning.
He flashed past like a bolt of lightning, and it gave rise to a wave of sounds of air exploding that were like thunderclaps, and the sounds swept towards Duan Ling Tian.
A spirit sword appeared out of thin air in Sun Rui’s hand, and it shot straight out with raging Origin Energy, seemed to have transformed into a venomous snake that had gone berserk and fiercely bit towards Duan Ling Tian.
Around the venomous snake’s body was fierce and swift azure energy that followed it like a shadow.
In the sky, an ancient horned dragon silhouettes condensed into form and flashed out.
Whereas beside the ancient horned dragon silhouette was another 740 ancient mammoth silhouettes that followed out behind the ancient horned dragon silhouette.
"Sixth level of the Void Prying Stage!" In practically an instant, Luo Rong and Chi Ming were the first to react, and their faces paled.
They were able to discern that Sun Rui’s cultivation was at the sixth level of the Void Prying Stage!
Whereas the spirit sword in Sun Rui’s hand was a grade seven spirit sword!
As for the Force Sun Rui had comprehended, it was the Half-step Advanced Wind Force!
"Die!" Zhang Heng face revealed a frenzied smile, and his eyes were filled with extreme hatred.
The humiliation Duan Ling Tian gave him at the Caged Battle Arena half a month ago was something he wouldn’t be able to forget for his entire lifetime, and seeing Duan Ling Tian being killed with his own two eyes was undoubtedly the happiest thing in his entire life.
"Duan Ling Tian!" Whereas Luo Zhan and Chen Shao Shuai who were concerned about Duan Ling Tian both had expressions that were grim.
Both of them had never imagined that the Black Fiend Sect’s Sun Rui would actually be a sixth level Void Prying Stage martial artist.
If they knew earlier, they would have spared no cost in persuading Duan Ling Tian to avoid the battle.
After all, a wise man knows when to retreat.
But unfortunately, it was already spilt milk.
But they weren’t worried about Duan Ling Tian’s safety.
Because they knew that if Duan Ling Tian’s life was in danger, Luo Rong would absolutely not stand idly by.
In Luo Rong’s heard, Duan Ling Tian was his teacher in the Dao of Weapons Refinement, and Duan Ling Tian status in his heart was extraordinary.
The facts were indeed like this.
At this moment, Luo Rong’s eyes had already squinted, the Origin Energy in his entire body was being accumulated, and he was prepared to make a move at any time.
To him, so long as he was able to save Duan Ling Tian, then any other thing wasn’t important.
But he was quickly struck dumb.
What did I see?
Luo Rong saw that when Sun Rui’s sword that flashed out and transformed into a venomous snake that bit towards Duan Ling Tian was very close to Duan Ling Tian.
Sun Rui abruptly changed his direction, and the sword in his hand dragged out a gorgeous streak in the air as it actually flashed towards the air at the Duan Ling Tian’s side.
His sword struck out and pierced into the air.
This scene caused all the people present to be dumbstruck.
As far as they were concerned, Sun Rui seemed as if he intentionally avoided Duan Ling Tian and pierced towards the air.
"Why did Sun Rui show mercy to Duan Ling Tian?" Many people were puzzled.
Amongst them included the Black Fiend Sect’s Qiu Cheng and Chai Jin.
"What is Senior Brother doing?" Chai Jin’s face went gloomy. "Why didn’t he directly kill Duan Ling Tian? With his strength, that sword strike from before was sufficient to kill Duan Ling Tian!"
Qiu Cheng frowned.
He naturally hoped that his disciple was able to kill Duan Ling Tian.
Otherwise, Duan Ling Tian staying alive was undoubtedly a latent threat for the Black Fiend Sect.
This threat couldn’t perhaps be considered to be nothing now.
But after another few years, then even if Duan Ling Tian didn’t rely on the assistance of the strength of others, just Duan Ling Tian alone would probably be sufficient to annihilate the Black Fiend Sect.
Right when everyone thought that Sun Rui had showed mercy.
"Hahahaha…" After Sun Rui’s sword flashed out and pierced the air by Duan Ling Tian’s side, he stood on the spot and stared at the ground by Duan Ling Tian’s side as he laughed loudly and arrogantly. "Duan Ling Tian, I’ve said it before, I only need a single move to kill you! You can’t even withstand a single strike of mine, you’re truly useless."
In the eyes of the spectators, Sun Rui was talking to the air, and this scene caused all the people present felt their skin creep.
"Has Sun Rui gone mad?" Many people were stunned.
"Could it be that Duan Ling Tian utilized his demonic technique?" There were also some Dragon and Phoenix Academy students that couldn’t help but be shocked in their hearts, and they guessed in their hearts.
"Demonic technique!" Flute Fairy, Zi Yan’s, beautiful face instantly went pale.
She’d always deeply believed that Duan Ling Tian knew demonic techniques.
Because her brother, Zither Young Master, was a victim, and she was a victim as well.
"I almost forgot this fellow knows demonic techniques…" Luo Zhan and Chen Shao Shuai couldn’t help but heave a sigh of relief when they saw this scene.
"What’s going on?" Prince Sheng and the Little Prince both had dumbstruck expressions as they utterly didn’t know what had happened before them.
Whereas Chai Jin and Qiu Cheng of the Black Fiend Sect send their voice transmissions to pierce into Sun Rui’s ears, wanting to awaken Sun Rui.
However, it was as if Sun Rui had been possessed, and he remained unmoved.
"Hmph! You escaped calamity eight years ago… Now that I’ve killed you today, the ending is still the same." Sun Rui looked at the empty ground with a chilly expression.
This scene caused most people present to be speechless.
"Has Sun Rui lost his mind?" Many people had strange gazes.
Presently, amongst the people present, it was probably only Duan Ling Tian that knew what was going on.
Early on when Sun Rui attack him, he’d successfully executed his soul skill, Thousand Illusion, through the soul brand at the depths of his soul.
Now, Sun Rui was within the illusory space that he’d created and had killed ‘him’ in the illusory space.
Whereas when Sun Rui was enjoying the delight of killing him.
Duan Ling Tian made his move and instantly arrived by Sun Rui’s side.
At this moment, Duan Ling Tian didn’t even have the intention to use a spirit weapon, and with a raise of his hand, he pointed out towards Sun Rui’s throat.
The point force flashed out from the tip of Duan Ling Tian’s finger, it caused a wave of piercing howls that were ear deafening, and it was as if his point force was assisted by the gods.
"Sun Rui!" When the Supreme Elder of the Black Fiend Sect, Qiu Cheng, saw that his voice transmission was unable to awaken Sun Rui, his face went gloomy and he hurriedly shouted out.
He wanted to use this to awaken Sun Rui.
However, the present Sun Rui still remained unmoved.
Under the gazes of disbelief of the surrounding crowd of spectators.
Duan Ling Tian’s pure Origin Energy point force that contained the strength of 6,000 ancient mammoths easily pierced through Sun Rui’s throat.
Fresh blood sprayed out.
A hideous bloody hole appeared on Sun Rui’s neck.
Subsequently, Sun Rui’s eyes that were originally dim had recovered their lustre at this moment.
At this moment, the effect of the soul skill, Thousand Illusion, that Duan Ling Tian utilized had vanished completely.
"You…" After Sun Rui left the illusory space, the first thing that entered his eyes was Duan Ling Tian who stood before him, and his pupils abruptly constricted.
At the instant before his death, Sun Rui was still unable to wrap his head around it. How did a person that had obviously died at his hand suddenly come back to life?
Sun Rui fell to the ground as blood gushed out like a pillar from his throat, his eyes that contained everlasting regret were glared wide open, and he was completely devoid of any signs of life.
A sixth level Void Prying Stage martial artist was killed by Duan Ling Tian with a single blow.
No matter what happened in between, Sun Rui had indeed died, died at the hands of Duan Ling Tian.
The scene was deathly silent.
The scene before their eyes gave them a feeling as if they were dreaming.
The expressions of the Black Fiend Sect’s Chai Jin and Qiu Cheng went gloomy when they saw Sun Rui was killed, and their eyes were instantly tainted with a bloody red color.
They were enraged to the point their bodies trembled intensely, yet they didn’t dare take action.
It was only because they knew that if they dared make a move, they would die without a doubt!
This place wasn’t their Black Fiend Sect.
Duan Ling Tian stood there with a carefree expression as he calmly looked at Sun Rui’s corpse.
After a long time, Duan Ling Tian heaved a sigh of relief.
The resentment because of Sun Rui that had accumulated bit by bit over these past eight years had completely vanished.
That person that had once wantonly trampled on his pride was dead.
At this moment, it was as if an enormous stone that was pressing down on his heart was shattered by him.
The surroundings were deathly silent.
Silent to the point it was terrifying.
The gazes of everyone had descended onto Sun Rui’s corpse.
Even if it was Luo Zhan and Chen Shao Shuai, who knew that Duan Ling Tian knew demonic techniques.
Although they were filled with confidence towards Duan Ling Tian, when they saw Sun Rui really being killed by Duan Ling Tian, they couldn’t help but feel shocked.
This was a sixth level Void Prying Stage martial artist!
A sixth level Void Prying Stage martial artist was killed by Duan Ling Tian in the blink of an eye.
The people who didn’t know of Duan Ling Tian’s abilities were shocked even more.
Of course, even more people felt that it was Duan Ling Tian’s luck.
After all, the soul skill, Thousand Illusions, was too difficult to understand for them.
"Duan Ling Tian’s luck is really good, he just happened to encounter Sun Rui losing his mind."
"Yes, this luck is simply heaven defying!"
"Sun Rui is unfortunate as well, he just had to lose his mind at the most critical moment and give away his life."
The surrounding crowd of spectators discussed animatedly.
"Hmph! I never imagined that Duan Ling Tian’s luck was actually so good." Zhang Heng’s face was extremely gloomy.
He originally thought that Sun Rui would be able to kill Duan Ling Tian.
Unexpectedly, Sun Rui actually lost his mind and was killed by Duan Ling Tian instead.
This caused the delight in Zhang Heng’s heart to vanish completely.
"Sun Rui was truly useless." Prince Sheng’s expression was extremely unsightly as well.
Since the moment that Duan Ling Tian had offended the Prince Sheng’s Estate, he’d wished for nothing more than to kill Duan Ling Tian and celebrate after.
Duan Ling Tian naturally heard the whispered discussions that came from the surroundings.
He didn’t have any reaction towards this, and he had no intention of explaining.
"Presently, my cultivation is at the fourth level of the Void Prying Stage, and my Spiritual Force has been pushed to the sixth level of the Void Prying Stage… So long as it isn’t a sixth level Void Prying Stage Inscription Master, or a martial artist at the seventh level of the Void Prying Stage or above, it would be difficult for my opponent to withstand the soul skill I execute!" Duan Ling Tian thought in his heart.
Almost one year ago, during the first experience mission of the Dragon and Phoenix Academy.
Duan Ling Tian had obtained a Soul Pearl from a bandit leader in Blackwind Ridge, and his Spiritual Force had advanced to the extent it was two levels higher than his cultivation.
At that time, his cultivation was at the first level of the Void Prying Stage, and his Spiritual Force had been pushed to the third level of the Void Prying Stage.
It could be said that it was all thanks to the contribution of the Soul Pearl that he was able to kill Sun Rui today.
Sun Rui’s cultivation was at the sixth level of the Void Prying Stage, and Sun Rui wasn’t an Inscription Master.
All this was also the reason he dared to agree to Sun Rui’s challenge, and this was something he’d concluded since long ago.
