When the Snow Moon Sect’s Sect Leader heard the Sect Leader of the Demonic Lotusblade Sect, he only smiled lightly but didn’t say anything.
He knew his own limitations.
Although the strength of his personal disciple, Liu Yue, wasn’t bad, she was still quite a distance away when compared with Demonic Lotusblade Sect’s Master’s foster son, Long Yun.
"I was wondering why the Sect Leader of the Demonic Lotusblade Sect was so kind, actually willing to take out a Profound Nascent Pill to be the prize for the first in the Martial Competition. So it turned out that he’d only bestowing it to his foster son, the Saber Young Master Long Yun, in a disguised form." Zheng Song who sat by Duan Ling Tian’s side frowned and snorted in a low voice.
Presently, it wasn’t only Zheng Song who thought in this way.
Most people present possessed similar thoughts.
How valuable was the Profound Nascent Pill, Duan Ling Tian didn’t care about it, but it didn’t mean that the others didn’t as well.
Duan Ling Tian possessed a natural talent in the Martial Dao that could be said to be at the extreme of a martial artist in Cloud Continent, yet others didn’t possess this.
To them, if they were able to acquire the Profound Nascent Pill, then they could save half a year of time in their cultivation in the future.
Even though it was only half a year, that was sufficient to close the gap between a great deal of people of the same generation and become distinguished amongst their peers.
"What? Senior Brother Zheng Song, you’re interested in that Profound Nascent Pill?" Duan Ling Tian smiled as he asked.
"Of course I’m interested." Zheng Song hurriedly nodded, and his eyes revealed a burning sheen. "That Profound Nascent Pill is able to help a martial artist advance their cultivation swiftly… If I consumed that Profound Nascent Pill, I might only need half a year to break through to the fifth level of the Nascent Soul Stage successfully!"
Duan Ling Tian nodded, and a bright light that was indistinct appeared in his eyes.
This was something that Zheng Song didn’t notice.
However, even if he noticed it, he wouldn’t be able to perceive Duan Ling Tian’s thoughts and intentions.
In next to no time, the host, the Demonic Lotusblade Sect’s Leader, announced the continuation of the Martial Competition.
Instantly, the disciples of the various sects entered the even ground and challenged the disciples of the other sects by name.
The spars were held, one by one, and were like a raging fire.
Within the pergola that Duan Ling Tian was in, Huang Ji’s figure flashed out to battle a fifth level Nascent Soul Stage disciple of the Origin Convergence Sect.
The battle between the two was extremely intense!
In terms of speed, both of them were on par; in terms of strength, there was hardly any difference between the two.
In the end, it was still Huang Ji who relied on another superb sword skill that condensed seven sword lights that seemed to have transformed into seven meteors, and they whistled as they descended with a speed like bolts of lightning, defeating his opponent in one go.
"This Huang Ji has cultivated two sword skills?" Duan Ling Tian was slightly surprised, as the two sword skills of Huang Ji were obviously already cultivated to the Perfection Stage.
Especially the sword skill he utilized in the end to defeat his opponent, it was even capable of being called superb…
Based on Duan Ling Tian’s evaluation, if his Sword Drawing Arts were to encounter this sword skill, it might not be able to gain the advantage in terms of speed.
"This sword skill completely crushes more than 90% of high grade Profound Rank sword skills." Duan Ling Tian glanced deeply at Huang JI.
This Huang Ji had an extremely petty character, but needless to say, he still had some ability.
At least, he hadn’t seen anyone that had battled until now that was stronger than Huang Ji.
"Seven Star Sword Technique!"
Right at this moment, waves of surprised exclaims entered into Duan Ling Tian’s ears.
Seven Star Sword Technique?
Duan Ling Tian’s eyes squinted when he heard these exclamations of surprise.
He’s heard of this sword skill before, it was the Sect Guarding sword skill…
Of course, it was impossible that the Seven Star Sword Sect only possessed one high grade Profound Rank sword skill as its Sect Guarding sword skill.
The Seven Star Sword Sect’s Guarding sword skill was a high grade Earth Rank sword skill!
"I heard a long time ago that the Seven Star Sword Sect’s Guarding sword skill, the Seven Star Sword Technique is the one and only high grade Earth Rank sword skill in the Seven Star Sword Sect… Moreover, this Seven Star Sword Technique has a basic section that’s called the Minor Seven Star Sword Technique."
Duan Ling Tian thought in his heart. "The sword skill this Huang Ji cultivated ought to be the Minor Seven Star Sword Technique."
The Minor Seven Star Sword Technique was from the Seven Star Sword Sect’s Sect Guarding sword skill, the Seven Star Sword Technique, and it was naturally extraordinary.
Supposedly, once a person who cultivated the Minor Seven Star Sword Technique to the Perfection Stage broke through to the Void Prying Stage, the person would be able to comprehend Elementary Sword Force in an extremely short amount of time…
At that time, the high grade Earth Rank sword skill, the Seven Star Sword Technique, would step into the Initial Stage as well.
"Sect Leader Linghu, this Minor Seven Star Sword Technique is the basic section of your Seven Star Sword Sect’s Guarding sword skill, the Seven Star Sword Technique… According to my knowledge, the Seven Star Sword Sect has a rule that the Seven Star Sword Technique can only be passed down to the person that inherits the place of Sect Leader, isn’t this so?" The Demonic Lotusblade Sect’s Leader looked at Linghu Jin Hong and lightly smiled as he asked.
"Exactly." Linghu Jin Hong nodded, he felt rather happy in his heart when he saw his personal disciple bringing honor to the Seven Star Sword Sect.
"In this way, Sect Leader Linghu intends to let your disciple inherit your position and become the next Sect Leader of the Seven Star Sword Sect?" The Origin Convergence Sect’s Leader looked at Linghu Jin Hong as he smiled spuriously.
Meanwhile, Huang Ji revealed a slightly complacent expression when he heard the Sect Leader of the Origin Convergence Sect.
Right, Master passed down the Minor Seven Star Sword Technique to me, it’s undoubtedly because he wants to pass down the Sect Guarding sword skill, the Seven Star Sword Technique, to me.
After all, the Minor Seven Star Sword Technique he cultivated was the basic section of the Seven Star Sword Technique.
For a time, Huang Ji looked at Duan Ling Tian with a complacent expression, as if he was saying to Duan Ling Tian, "Kid, look clearly, I’m the future Sect Leader of the Seven Star Sword Sect!"
But he quickly noticed that from the beginning until the end, Duan Ling Tian only glanced indifferently at him and didn’t have the interest to glance at him again.
This caused Huang Ji’s expression to become even gloomier.
This Duan Ling Tian, dammit!
Right at this moment, the Sect Leader of the Origin Convergence Sect laughed heartily, then said, "Sect Leader Linghu, looks like you don’t plan to pass the place of Sect Leader of the Seven Star Sword Sect to Duan Ling Tian… With Duan Ling Tian’s natural talent, could it be that he still doesn’t have the qualifications to become the next Sect Leader of your Seven Star Sword Sect?"
"Sect Leader Linghu, originally as an outsider, it isn’t right for me to interfere in the matters of your Seven Star Sword Sect… But now, you’re really too unfair. As far as I’m concerned, with Duan Ling Tian’s natural talent, it wouldn’t even take a year for him to surpass your personal disciple." When the Snow Moon Sect’s Sect Leader spoke up to here, he withdrew his gaze from Linghu Jin Hong and shot it at Duan Ling Tian. "If Duan Ling Tian was a disciple of my Snow Moon Sect, then I’d be willing to immediately set him as the next inheritor of the position as the Sect Leader of Snow Moon Sect, teach him the Snow Moon Sect’s Guarding sword skill, Snow Moon Sword Technique, and spare no efforts in fostering him!"
The words of the Snow Moon Sect’s Sect Leader were like a wick that lit a flame, lighting the scene’s atmosphere ablaze.
"Duan Ling Tian, in the future, if you feel it’s not worth staying in the Seven Star Sword Sect, my Origin Convergence Sect would welcome you as well. I’m similarly willing to set you as the next inheritor of the position of Sect Leader, moreover, I’ll teach you my Origin Convergence Sect’s Guarding martial skill, Origin Convergence Palm!" The Origin Convergence Sect’s Leader was unwilling to be left behind, and he looked at Duan Ling Tian as he tossed out an olive branch.
"Duan Ling Tian, our Mountain Split Sect is the same as well, we’ll absolutely not allow you to suffer a loss." The Mountain Split Sect’s Leader made a promise as well.
The promise of the Mountain Split Sect’s Leader just happened to be heard by the Mountain Split Sect disciple that has just awoken after being angered by Duan Ling Tian to the point he fainted…
Instantly, the Mountain Split Sect disciples face went ghastly pale, then he spit out a mouthful of blood and fainted once again, causing the other three Mountain Split Sect disciples to be speechless.
"Haha…" The Sect Leader of the Demonic Lotusblade Sect laughed heartily. "Since the three Sect Leaders have stated their stance, then I as the host must state my stance as well."
As he spoke, the Demonic Lotusblade Sect’s Sect Master looked at Duan Ling Tian. "Duan Ling Tian, if you’re willing to join my Demonic Lotusblade Sect, I can provide you the best cultivation environment… Not only that, you can regularly spar with my foster son, Long Yun, and increase your strength. I can promise you that so long as you can surpass my foster son, Long Yun, then I’ll let you become the next Sect Leader of the Demonic Lotusblade Sect."
The four great sects tried to poach Duan Ling Tian in unison.
Desiring to lure the peerless genius, Duan Ling Tian, into their own sects.
This scene caused the disciples of the various great sects to be astounded.
At the Seven Star Sword Sect’s pergola.
"Junior Brother Duan Ling Tian." Zheng Song looked at Duan Ling Tian with a perturbed expression, he was really worried that Duan Ling Tian would be unable to resist the temptation of the four great sects and turn to one of the four great sects.
Huang Ji’s expression was extremely unsightly.
He suddenly felt that he was like a clown before Duan Ling Tian now…
Especially that Snow Moon Sect’s Sect Leader who trampled on his dignity and flattered Duan Ling Tian, it angered him to the point his chest seemed like it would explode.
"Duan Ling Tian!" At this moment, Huang Ji’s hate was practically at a point it was difficult to restrain.
Meng Qiu had a bitter smile on his face.
He’d realized that the biggest mistaken decision he’s done in this lifetime was to become enemies with Duan Ling Tian, and move to be the opposition of Duan Ling Tian.
He took a deep breath, and he’d already come to a decision in his heart.
If Duan Ling Tian didn’t turn to the other four great sects, then after the Martial Competition this time, he would surely look for Duan Ling Tian and offer a humble apology, and make Duan Ling Tian forgive his past actions.
The two Peak Masters of the Seven Star Sword Sect that were present, Zheng Fan and Ke Zhen, both had unsightly expressions.
These four great sects are really shameless!
They actually tried to poach our Seven Star Sword Sect’s disciple in front of us and the Sect Leader.
Did they really think that we’re non-existent?
Finally, the Sect Leader of the Seven Star Sword Sect, Linghu Jin Hong, stated his stance. "Four Sect Leaders, since all of you know that the Seven Star Sword Technique is the Sect Guarding sword skill of my Seven Star Sword Sect, and is only passed on to the next Sect Leader… Then all of you ought to know that the Minor Seven Star Sword Technique doesn’t represent the Seven Star Sword Technique!
"As for the position of Sect Leader of the Seven Star Sword Sect, I already have a plan in my heart… So long as Duan Ling Tian is willing, I can relinquish my position to him right now, and allow him to become the new Sect Leader of the Seven Star Sword Sect. I’m willing to stand behind him and support him," Linghu Jin Hong said slowly.
His words were spoken with incomparable sincerity, and without the slightest falsehood.
"As for the Seven Star Sword Technique, after this Martial Competition ends and we return to the Seven Star Sword Sect, I will naturally pass it down to him." Linghu Jin Hong looked at Duan Ling Tian as he continued.
Linghu Jin Hong’s stand caused the Sect Leaders of the other four great sects to be stunned.
They never expected that Linghu Jin Hong would actually possesses such great resolution!
He was actually willing to directly relinquish his position to Duan Ling Tian!
