Xie Kang Xun, the Golden Lion King, sneered when he heard Duan Ling Tian's words. He continued to charge toward Duan Ling Tian. "Shameless boasting!"
It sounded like a joke to Xie Kang Xun. He was the Golden Lion King, one of the Four Great Karmapas of Black Kshetra Sect. He had long broken through to the Seventh Form of the Saint Celestial Stage and could be considered as one of the top powerhouses at the Seventh Form of the Saint Celestial Stage in the Dao Martial Saint Land. This could be seen from his rank, the 19th place, on the Supreme Saint Ranking! It should be noted that there were only a few people who were ranked ahead of him at the Seventh Form of the Saint Celestial Stage on the Supreme Saint Ranking.
However, today, a young lad shamelessly boasted and disregarded Xie Kang Xun. How could he not be angry?
Duan Ling Tian could not help but laugh when he heard Xie Kang Xun's words. "Shameless boasting? You'll see soon enough whether it's shameless boasting or not!"
Xie Kang Xun scoffed as he said, "I can't wait to see!" He had cast a movement martial tactic and Divine Ability to hasten his speed. He looked like a furious lion intending to tear his prey apart as he charged toward Duan Ling Tian.
While Xie Kang Xun hastened his speed, the Celestial Supreme Treasure, the Jasper Celestial Sword, appeared in Duan Ling Tian's hands. He sent his Sun Saint Origin into the sword and a terrifying and destructive aura radiated off the sword, sending shivers up the spines of everyone who was watching.
"This strike is for your failure in educating your son!" Duan Ling Tian said as the Jasper Celestial Sword flew out at lightning speed toward Xie Kang Xun. The sword that contained Duan Ling Tian's Sun Saint Origin that was raised to its highest limit was wielded by Duan Ling Tian using the third stage of the Supreme Sword Dao Mental Cultivation Method, the Sovereign Heart Sword.
Was there anyone who was able to defend against the swordplay technique of the Sovereign Heart Sword?
To the sectless cultivators, it seemed as though Duan Ling Tian's sword had vanished. They only heard the shrill cry of a sword.
It's so fast!' Xie Kang Xun thought to himself as fear inexplicably rose in his heart. Soon after, he felt a sharp pain in his right shoulder. He looked instinctively looked at it and discovered he had lost his right arm! It had been severed from his shoulder. Blood kept on spurting out from his wound!
Soon after, Duan Ling Tian said again, "This strike is for you falsely claiming I have the Super Saint Weapon, the Traceless Sword!"
Before Xie Kang Xun could catch his severed right arm with his other hand, Duan Ling Tian struck again. Just like that, Xie Kang Xun lost his left arm as well. At this time, even someone as strong as Xie Kang Xun could not help but groan in pain. He hovered in the air as he staunched the bleeding on his shoulders. He looked at Duan Ling Tian in horror and disbelief. He did not think Duan Ling Tian whom he had considered as insignificant would be so terrifyingly strong! Any of the two strikes could have killed him! However, Duan Ling Tian seemed to be toying with him. Duan Ling Tian had deliberately avoided striking at his vital parts. Otherwise, he would have died! He was certain of this!
How's this possible?! It has only been three years... How could he have grown so strong?! I-is it possible that he had a fortuitous encounter during these past three years?' Xie Kang Xun found it hard to believe. He could not accept this. Someone whom he had regarded as an ant was strong enough to kill him today! For a moment, he even thought he was dreaming!
Meanwhile, the sectless cultivators finally regained their senses. They could not help but gasp!
Everything happened in just a split second. They did not have time to react until Xie Kang Xun had stopped charging at Duan Ling Tian. They were shocked by Xie Kang Xun's loss at Duan Ling Tian's hands!
"Oh, God! Can anyone tell me if I'm dreaming? T-this is impossible!" A young sectless cultivator said in shock and disbelief.
"I find this hard to believe as well. Xie Kang Xun, the Golden Lion King of Black Kshetra Sect, who's ranked 19th on the Supreme Saint Ranking lost both his arms to Duan Ling Tian before he could even get near him?" A middle-aged sectless cultivator cried out as he looked at Duan Ling Tian as though he had seen a ghost. He was frozen for a while as though Duan Ling Tian had cast a spell on him.
"The Golden Lion King, one of the Four Great Karmapas of Black Kshetra Sect, is defeated just like that?"
"Although I find it hard to believe, the truth is laid bare before our eyes!"
"When the Golden Lion King came, he was so energetic and arrogant like a lion... Now, he looks like a dog with its tail between its legs!"
"The Golden Lion King seems to be in shock as well... Perhaps, he's also wondering how someone he regarded as an ant became stronger than him in such a short time!"
"I'm equally shocked!"
Duan Ling Tian's strength did not only shock the Golden Lion King, but it shocked the group of sectless cultivators present on the scene as well. Before the Golden Lion King lost his arms, they did not think Duan Ling Tian would be stronger than the Golden Lion King. In fact, they were certain the Golden Lion King would kill Duan Ling Tian! However, what happened subsequently was like a slap to their faces! Not only did Xie Kang Xun fail to kill Duan Ling Tian, but Duan Ling Tian had severed both of Xie Kang Xun's arms. Xie Kang Xun was useless now that he had lost his arms!
Run!' This was Xie Kang Xun's first thought when he realized how terrifyingly strong Duan Ling Tian was. Once that thought appeared, Xie Kang Xun immediately tried to flee in the opposite direction of Duan Ling Tian.
Bang! Bang! Bang! Bang! Bang!
A series of explosions rang in the air as the Saint Origin on Xie Kang Xun's body trembled violently. At this moment, he had unleashed all his strength and cast all the techniques he had mastered in order to escape! He had completely abandoned the thought of revenge. He only wanted to leave no matter how slim the chances were.
As Xie Kang Xun turned around to flee, Duan Ling Tian said again, "This strike is to prove that I'm not shamelessly boasting!" His words sent chills running up everyone's spines.
A short-lived sword's cry sounded as soon as Duan Ling Tian finished speaking.
Upon hearing the sword's cry, Xie Kang Xun shuddered like a startled bird. He slowed for a moment before he sped up again in an attempt to escape!
A soft noise sounded as Xie Kang Xun sped up.
Under the watchful eyes of the others, a bloody wound appeared at the back of Xie Kang Xun's head as he tried to escape. Blood spurted everywhere...
At this moment, everyone fell silent. They only regained their senses when they saw Duan Ling Tian had flown next to Xie Kang Xun to retrieve his Spatial Ring. After that, they saw Duan Ling Tian let Xie Kang Xun's body fall to the ground. Fear could be seen in their eyes!
Duan Ling Tian maimed Xie Kang Xun, one of the Four Great Karmapas of Black Kshetra Sect, with two strikes and killed him with the third strike.
Was that man really Xie Kang Xun? Was he really the Black Kshetra Sect's Golden Lion King who was ranked 19th on the Supreme Saint Ranking?
Duan Ling Tian paid no mind to everyone's gaze. He had devoured Xie Kang Xun's Innate Spiritual Root to improve his Innate Spiritual Root! Although Xie Kang Xun possessed an indigo Innate Spiritual Root, it was like pouring a cup of water into the sea. After all, Duan Ling Tian possessed a violet Innate Spiritual Root that was superior to indigo Innate Spiritual Roots!
“I wonder when my Innate Spiritual Root will evolve from light violet to a normal shade of violet... Once it evolves, my innate talent will improve again and my cultivation speed will become even faster! With the help of the time flow on the fourth level of the Seven Treasures Exquisite Pagoda, I'll be able to raise my cultivation base quickly!1 Duan Ling Tian was delighted when he thought about this.
