"Is he very famous?" Duan Ling Tian noticed He Chun’s surprised expression, and asked with a bewildered and dazed expression.
This name seemed like he’d heard it somewhere… But, for a moment he was unable to recall it.
"Of course he’s famous!" He Chun discerned that Duan Ling Tian really hadn’t heard of Shi Hao before and couldn’t help but explain. "Shi Hao, it’s the disciple that’s publically acknowledged by most disciples as the number one disciple in our Seven Star Sword Sect’s outer court… There’s practically no one in the outer court disciples that is his match!"
Number one in the outer court?!
Duan Ling Tian’s pupils constricted.
He’d finally recalled it!
He remembered that Shi Yan had once bawled before him when he crippled her Dantian that day, she said something about having a brother who was the number one in the outer court, moreover her brother was an existence that was about to become an inner court disciple, a quasi inner court disciple.
Later on, Elder Bi had warned him that he should be careful of Shi Yan’s brother Shi Hao!
So it turned out to be that the person He Chun mentioned who wanted to ascend the life and death arena to battle him, was precisely that Shi Hao.
Shi Yan’s brother.
He Chun thought Duan Ling Tian was afraid when he saw Duan Ling Tian’s expression that was ceaselessly changed, and hurriedly warned. "Duan Ling Tian, if you don’t have any urgent matters, then continue hiding… It probably wouldn’t be long before that Shi Hao will know of the news that you appeared here, and at that time he will surely come find you at the first possible moment."
"Then let him come!" Duan Ling Tian shrugged and had an indifferent expression, then looked at He Chun and asked with a light smile. "He Chun, Hu Li ought to have returned already right?"
"Huh." He Chun saw Duan Ling Tian’s indifferent expression and laughed bitterly, his only thought was that Duan Ling Tian was like a newborn calf that didn’t fear a tiger. "He asked me to tell you that in the future, he will let you see a new him… Besides that, the Hu Clan he’s from is at Clarity City."
Duan Ling Tian nodded, and remembered it in his heart. He was happy for Hu Li as Hu Li was able to be so optimistic.
At least, Hu Li didn’t sink into the shadows of the past.
"Duan Ling Tian, I think you should hide for a while." He Chun felt his scalp go slightly numb when he thought of Shi Hao. As far as he was concerned, the strength of Shi Hao was too formidable, and was far from something Duan Ling Tian could go against.
"You can hide at the beginning, but you can’t hide forever… Some things have to be faced." Duan Ling Tian shrugged and shook his head as he smiled.
He Chun went silent.
"Right, He Chun, when is the outer court martial competition starting? Besides that, what do I have to do if I want to participate?" Since He Chun happened to be here, Duan Ling Tian took the opportunity to ask.
He left the stalactite cave this time precisely for the sake of the outer court martial competition this time.
Not only did he want to participate in the outer court martial competition, he wanted to obtain the first place.
This was the promise he made to Hu Li!
A man’s promise!
"The first round of the outer court martial competition is three days from now… So long as you’re a Megrez Peak disciples, you can participate in the first round of the outer court martial competition, and you don’t have to do anything. At that time, people who want to participate can all gather at the Megrez Platform to receive their number token, then undergo elimination battles to decide on the strongest ten." He Chun said to Duan Ling Tian. "But, the outer court martial competition this time is different from the previous years, as if doesn’t have restrictions like before… This time, many seventh level Origin Core Stage outer court disciples will participate." Duan Ling Tian nodded, this was something he’d already heard from Li Fei earlier, and was mentally prepared.
Seventh level Origin Core Stage?
Since he’d promised Hu Li that he would seize the first place in the outer court martial competition, then he would surely do it!
Duan Ling Tian’s gaze was incomparably firm.
"He Chun, then I’ll be returning first… See you in three days." Duan Ling Tian bid his farewells to He Chun, then turned around and left, disappearing before the eyes of all the Megrez Peak disciples.
Coming and going without a trace, elusive!
It wasn’t long before a figure that dashed like the wind arrived at Megrez peak, and under the guidance of some Megrez Peak disciples, he found He Chun.
"You know Duan Ling Tian?" The young man with a distorted and hideous expression, sprung his triangular eyes wide open as he stared fixedly at He Chun.
He Chun never imagined that Shi Hao would actually find his place of cultivation, and the corners of his mouth curled into a bitter smile as he nodded.
"Take me to him!" Shi Hao’s eyes flickered with a gloomy sheen, and his voice was cold as ice.
"I don’t know where he cultivates." He Chun shook his head.
"Hmm?" Shi Hao’s face sank, and his triangular eyes stared at He Chun, and in the end noticed that He Chun seemed to not be lying. "What did he look for you for?"
"It was only a chance meeting, he asked me some things about the outer court martial competition, then left." He Chun didn’t conceal anything, as far as he was concerned, there was no need to conceal this as all the Megrez Peak disciples would know three days from now.
"In other words, he will participate in the outer court martial competition this time?" She Hao’s triangular eyes shone, and the corner of his mouth curled into a cold smile that had a trace of gloominess, as if Duan Ling Tian was already within his grasp.
"Yes." He Chun nodded, this time he could be sure.
He was able to discern that Duan Ling Tian appeared nearby the Trade Hall today precisely to obtain information about the outer court martial competition.
"That’s good." Shi Hao’s triangular eyes flickered with a cold light, he raised his hand to directly hit He Chun flying, and he only coldly snorted and left after he saw He Chun crash onto the ground.
"Pu!" He Chun wan injured and spat out a mouthful of blood, and the corners of his mouth curled into a bitter smile.
This Shi Hao was as overbearing as the rumors said after all!
Three days later.
The first round of the Seven Star Sword Sect’s outer court martial competition started.
The outer courts of the six great sword peaks would decide on the 10 strongest outer court disciples today, then they would participate in the second round of the outer court martial competition tomorrow!
The second round of the outer court martial competition was the true outer court martial competition.
Disciples that are outstanding in the second round of the outer court martial competition will be able to obtain generous prizes that was bestowed by the Seven Star Sword Sect…
This was the reason that caused all the outer court disciples to flock towards the outer court martial competition.
On the peak of Megrez Peak, a figure dashed like the wind, and in the blink of an eyes, the figure flashed down to arrive nearby the Trade Hall.
"Where’s the Megrez Platform?"
The person that come down from the peak was precisely Duan Ling Tian
Duan Ling Tian who didn’t know the location of the first round of the outer court martial competition merged into the stream of people that were on the Megrez Peak mountain path.
Instantly, some of the nearby Megrez Peak disciples recognized Duan Ling Tian.
"It’s Duan Ling Tian!"
"Duan Ling Tian, you actually still dare to appear, could it be that you aren’t afraid of Senior Brother Shi Hao?"
"Yeah, Duan Ling Tian, if Senior Brother Shi Hao knows that you’ve appeared, he would surely not let you off."
A burst of similar words entered into Duan Ling Tian’s ears.
Duan Ling Tian only smiled indifferently towards this and paid no attention to it, his figure flashed, dashing like the wind as he flashed down the mountain while following along the stream of people.
Before long, Duan Ling Tian passed the vast platform that the life and death arena was located on.
Finally, Duan Ling Tian arrived at the Megrez Platform.
Duan Ling Tian’s gaze flickered as he looked at this Megrez Platform that occupied an area far larger than the platform the life and death arena was on. "This Megrez Platform is rather huge."
The Megrez Platform was extremely large, and on it stood 10 spacious stone arenas.
Any one of these stone arenas weren’t inferior to the life and death arena.
Based on Duan Ling Tian’s guess, these stone arenas ought to be the Combat Rings that were used to carry out the elimination battles for the first round of the outer court martial competition.
Before long, many outer court disciples had gathered on the Megrez Platform.
These outer court disciples were brimming with vigor, and rubbed their fists and palms together, wanting to become one of the 10 people that advance in the end, today.
Only in this way would they have a chance to obtain the prizes bestowed by the Seven Star Sword Sect.
Duan Ling Tian stood there, and naturally attracted many gazes.
In Megrez Peak, Duan Ling Tian was absolutely considered as a famous person currently…
But amongst the people that looked at Duan Ling Tian, some of them had a trace of pleasure in Duan Ling Tian’s misfortune mixed in their eyes. "This Duan Ling Tian actually dares participate in the outer court martial competition… Even if he successfully advances, he would surely encounter Senior Brother Shi Hao in the end. Based on the hatred Senior Brother Shi Hao has towards him, even if he doesn’t die, he will be crippled!"
"If I was him, I’d surely not participate in the outer court martial competition this time."
"Yeah, what he should do now is hide and cultivate… And come out when his cultivation breaks through to the seventh level of the Origin Core Stage. With his natural talent, it ought to not take him too long. At that time, Senior Brother Shi Hao might not be able to do anything to him."
"I really don’t know what he is thinking."
The crowd of Megrez Peak disciples whispered amongst themselves, Duan Ling Tian could vaguely hear some of it, but he didn’t pay any attention.
If he did that, then he wasn’t Duan Ling Tian.
"Duan Ling Tian!" Before long, Duan Ling Tian saw He Chun had arrived. But, he noticed that there was an injury on the corner of He Chun’s mouth, and he frowned. "He Chun, who injured you?"
"It was Shi Hao. It’s not a big deal, it’s only a flesh injury." He Chun shook his head and smiled, with an indifferent expression.
"Shi Hao?" Duan Ling Tian frowned, and felt it to be slightly strange. "Why did he injure you? Do you have a dispute with him?"
He Chun shook his head. "No. Three days ago, some people saw me talking to you nearby the Trade Hall, and they told Shi Hao… Shi Hao found my place of cultivation and asked me about you. I told him about you participating in the outer court martial competition, I’m sorry." As he finished speaking, He Chun had a face full of an apologetic expression.
"It’s only a small matter. Even if you didn’t say so, he would know today." Duan Ling Tian lightly smiled and didn’t mind. "How about it? Do you have any confidence in advancing today?"
"Don’t kid around. I never had the intention of participating when I came here today, and I only came to cheer you on… But, wanting to advance with your strength is extremely easy!" He Chun’s words were filled with confidence to Duan Ling Tian.
"It’s Senior Brother He Dong!" Right at this moment, a surprised voice sounded out, causing many Megrez Peak disciples to turn and look.
Duan Ling Tian looked over as well.
He saw a young man around the age of 25 walking over swiftly from a side of the mountain path.
All the Megrez Peak disciples fervently greeted him everywhere he passed. "Senior Brother He Dong!"
"Senior Brother He Dong!"
"Senior Brother He Dong!"
After the young man walked into the Megrez Platform, he stood at the side and closed his eyes to rest his mind, ignoring everything in his surroundings.
