2185 Ignoring Leng Ying

    "How arrogant!" Accompanied by these words, a figure appeared in the air.

    Although the figure was in the distance, Duan Ling Tian could tell it was an old man.

    In just a blink of an eye, the old man appeared close to Duan Ling Tian and stood opposite him. He glared at Duan Ling Tian with hostility.

    The old man had a messy appearance. His clothes were untidy, making him look like an old beggar. However, everyone on the scene saluted the old man respectfully as soon as he appeared.

    "Lord Hall Master!"

    Everyone's words confirmed Duan Ling Tian's suspicion about the old man with a messy appearance. He was Leng Ying, the Hall Master of the Enforcement Hall!

    "Congratulations, Lord Hall Master, for successfully breaking through to the Seventh Form of the Saint Celestial Stage, the Heaven Defying Form! You've achieved near-immortality and share the same lifespan as heaven and earth!" Jiang Qin, the Vice Hall Master of the Enforcement Hall, was the first to congratulate Leng Ying. A hint of excitement could be heard in his voice when he spoke. After all, there was finally a powerhouse at the Seventh Form of the Saint Celestial Stage in the Enforcement Hall!

    "Congratulations, Lord Hall Master!" Dong Yuan Jin, also a Vice Hall Master of the Enforcement Hall, and another Vice Hall Master of the Enforcement Hall who was here since the beginning to watch the show congratulated Leng Ying.

    Since Jiang Qin noticed the breakthrough of the Hall Master of the Enforcement Hall, it was only natural that the other Vice Hall Masters had noticed it as well.

    The others broke out in a commotion immediately.

    "Lord Hall Master has made a breakthrough?"

    "Since the few Lord Vice Hall Masters have congratulated Lord Hall Master, naturally, it must be true!"

    "Since Lord Hall Master has broken through, this means there's a fifth powerhouse at the Seventh Form of the Saint Celestial Stage in the Fire Worship Sect! More importantly, there's a powerhouse at the Seventh Form of the Saint Celestial Stage in the Enforcement Hall!"

    After discussing among themselves, the people in the surroundings congratulated Leng Ying, the Hall Master of the Enforcement Hall, one after another. Their eyes were filled with reverence when they looked at Leng Ying.

    A powerhouse whose cultivation base had entered the Seventh Form of the Saint Celestial Stage, the Heaven Defying Form, possessed an endless lifespan. He would share the same lifespan as heaven and earth, and the sun and the moon! Leng Ying nodded and smiled in response to everyone's congratulatory messages.

    "Jiang Qin, why do you look so wretched?" Leng Yin asked with a frown when he saw Jiang Qin looking extremely untidy.

    Before Jiang Qin could reply, Dong Yuan Jin had beaten him to it. He said, "Lord Hall Master, Vice Hall Master Jiang was injured by Duan Ling Tian. Not only that, but my son, Dong Lin, an Enforcement Hall elder, is killed by Duan Ling Tian as well. He had died without a corpse!" Anger could be heard in voice when he spoke. His eyes were bloodshot. Dong Lin was his only son. He had invested much effort into Dong Lin. However, all his hard work had been in vain now that Duan Ling Tian had killed his son.

    He managed to injure Vice Hall Master Jiang to such an extent? Looks like Duan Ling Tian has quite a fortuitous encounter in the past few years. Otherwise, it would be impossible for him to grow so strong in such a short time!' Leng Ying thought to himself.

    Leng Ying turned to look at Duan Ling Tian. His smile had vanished, and there was a cold expression on his face.

    "You're the true disciple, Duan Ling Tian?"

    Faced with Leng Ying's interrogative manner, Duan Ling Tian only asked in return, "You're Hall Master Leng Ying?"

    Leng Ying's expression darkened immediately when he heard Duan Ling Tian's words.

    Dong Yuan Jin who was standing close by jumped out and glared at Duan Ling Tian. He asked angrily, "How dare you?! Do you think you can act as you please in the Enforcement Hall just because you're stronger than Vice Hall Master Jiang? You're not qualified to act so wantonly in front of Hall Master Leng Ying."

    When Leng Ying arrived, Dong Yuan Jin felt the unease in his heart disappear. In his opinion, with Leng Ying's current strength, it would be easy for Leng Ying to defeat Duan Ling Tian!

    Duan Ling Tian only ignored Dong Yuan Jin. Regardless of how loud he had shouted, Duan Ling Tian did not even glance at him.

    When Leng Ying heard Dong Yuan Jin's words, his expression turned grave. He said coldly, "Duan Ling Tian, how dare you! According to sect's laws, the punishment for killing a fellow member is a death sentence. Since you came to the Enforcement Hall today, don't even think about leaving this place alive!" His tone brooked no arguments. It was obvious he intended to kill Duan Ling Tian today.

    At this moment, the Vice Hall Master that had been watching the show quietly sent a Voice Transmission to Leng Ying. "Lord Hall Master! Lord Sect Leader has personally invited Duan Ling Tian to return to the sect three days ago. Before we obtain Lord Sect Leader's permission, I'm afraid it won't be wise for the Enforcement Hall to execute him..."

    "What announcement did Lord Sect Leader make three days ago?" Since Leng Yin was in closed-door cultivation, he was unaware of this matter. He finally learned about what happened after the Vice Hall Master explained everything to him through Voice Transmission. He knew instantly that it was not a good idea to kill Duan Ling Tian without the Sect Leader's express permission.

    Lord Sect Leader only asks for Duan Ling Tian's return because of the Super Saint Weapon, the Devilseal Tablet, that he possesses. If I kill Duan Ling Tian now, the location where Duan Ling Tian buried the Devilseal Tablet will forever be lost. I'll only spoil Lord Sect Leader's plan if I kill Duan Ling Tian...1 Leng Ying thought to himself. He made up his mind to punish Duan Ling Tian, but he would not kill him.

    Duan Ling Tian was not angry when he heard Leng Ying's words. He only chuckled before he said nonchalantly, "Hall Master Leng Ying, we'll have to see if you're capable of killing me or not!" Based on his words, one could see he did not take Leng Ying, the Hall Master of the Enforcement Hall, seriously at all.

    Leng Ying was stunned when he heard Duan Ling Tian's words. He did not expect Duan Ling Tian would be so daring and say these words to him. He was currently a powerhouse at the Seventh Form of the Saint Celestial Stage after all.

    Duan Ling Tian did not wait for Leng Ying to reply. Instead, he turned to look at Dong Yuan Jin and said coldly, "Dong Yuan Jin, I told you I'll kill you in front of Hall Master Leng Ying since you think of him as your savior. I'll let you know what it means to feel despair!"

    Dong Yuan Jin's expression changed. He looked at Leng Yin and complained loudly, "Lord Hall Master! Duan Ling Tian is too arrogant, it's unforgivable! He killed an Enforcement Hall elder earlier, and now, he wants to kill me, a Vice Hall Master of the Enforcement Hall!"

    Leng Ying was also infuriated by Duan Ling Tian's words. He was so angry that his body began to tremble violently.

    "Arrogant! Arrogant!" Leng Ying bellowed angrily, "Duan Ling Tian, I won't kill you since Lord Sect Leader asked for your return. However, you'll still be punished. I'll punish you in the Enforcement Hall today!"

    When Leng Yin was speaking, Duan Ling Tian cast his assist-type Divine Ability. "Elementary Devouring Tactic!" He absorbed Heaven and Earth Spirit Energy in his surroundings and raised his Sun Saint Origin to its limit.


    As soon as Leng Yin finished speaking, a Thousand Inscriptions Saint Sword had appeared in Duan Ling Tian's hand for a moment before it disappeared from his hand. Only the sound of a sword whistling in the air could be heard.

    A fleeting sword ray could be seen in the sky like a meteor.



    The sound of something being cut and the sound of someone yelling 'stop' sounded at the same time.

    The people in the surroundings trembled in fear when they heard this. They turned to look at the source of the cacophony. They saw Dong Yuan Jin's arm had been severed by Duan Ling Tian's Thousand Inscriptions Saint Sword. Dazzlingly red blood kept gushing out of his wound...

    Duan Ling Tian's sword was so fast that Leng Ying could not even react in time. When he regained his senses, Dong Yuan Jin's arm was already severed.

    On the other hand, Dong Yuan Jin was stunned. He was so stunned that he did not even feel the pain from his injuries. Duan Ling Tian had severed his arms, thoroughly disregarding Leng Ying, the Hall Master of the Enforcement Hall, whose cultivation base was at the Seventh Form of the Saint Celestial Stage? Not only that, but from the beginning until the end, Leng Ying could not react at all.

    D-Don't tell me Duan Ling Tian is not weaker than a powerhouse at the Seventh Form of the Saint Celestial Stage?' Dong Yuan Jin thought to himself. His eyes widened immediately. A hint of unwillingness and despair could be seen in his eyes at this moment.
