Meanwhile, a Dragon and Phoenix Academy worker left the Inner Hall with large strides and went to prepare fine wine and delicacies for Duan Ling Tian.
Domineeringly defeating Chai Jin with a cultivation at the first level of the Void Prying Stage and Half-step Advanced Lightning Force, the scene from before had practically replicated the scene of Sword Young Master defeating Chai Jin.
As far as the workers of the academy were concerned, the strength of this violet clothed young man wasn’t inferior to Sword Young Master.
Even to the extent that because the violet clothed young man had comprehended a Force of nature, he might even surpass Sword Young Master in terms of strength.
After all, although Sword Young Master’s Sword Force was at the Half-step Advanced Stage as well, but it could only be used on attacks.
Whereas the violet clothed young man’s Lightning Force was able to be used in both attacks and movement techniques, thus affecting his speed and could be said to possess both speed and offense.
If they really were to battle, Sword Young Master’s chances of winning were extremely small, because Sword Young Master’s speed was bound to be inferior to this violet clothed young man.
So although the violet clothed young man hadn’t officially challenged an Inner Hall student, he still obediently went to prepare fine wine and delicacies for the violet clothed youth.
Only because there was no suspense towards the violet clothed youth becoming an Inner Hall student!
"Abnormal!" The corners of Ji Feng’s mouth twitched, and he felt the back of his heart go slightly cold.
When he recalled how he almost offended this maleficent existence in the restaurant earlier today, he felt a slight lingering fear in his heart.
Fortunately, he was sufficiently cautious.
"He… He was still concealing his strength when he was outside earlier!" The Sword Young Master, Chen Shao Shuai’s, gaze was extremely complicated.
Although after he witnessed Duan Ling Tian’s strength at the academy gates earlier, he didn’t doubt in the slightest that Duan Ling Tian was able to surpass him in the future… But that was only in the future.
What he never expected was that there was utterly no need to wait until the future, as Duan Ling Tian’s current strength was already sufficient to stably defeat him.
Half-step Advanced Lightning Force!
When he recalled the strands of faint violet colored energy that leaped about on Duan Ling Tian’s raging Origin Energy when Duan Ling Tian swung his arm out, Sword Young Master’s heart couldn’t help but experience a wave of shock.
He originally thought that even if it was throughout the entire Azure Forest Imperial Kingdom, it would be difficult to find someone who had similarly been able to comprehend Half-step Advanced Force at the first level of the Void Prying Stage like him.
But when he saw Duan Ling Tian execute Half-step Advanced Lightning Force, the self-satisfaction in his heart was completely gone!
Besides him, there was still someone in the Azure Forest Imperial Kingdom that was able to comprehend Half-step Advanced Force at the first level of the Void Prying Stage.
Moreover, the Half-step Advanced Force that was comprehended was a Force of nature!
A Force of nature possessed an advantage against a weapon Force, as it possessed both offense and speed, and it was the best type of Force!
"If the higher-ups of the Azure Forest Tri-Sect find out of the strength that Duan Ling Tian revealed today, I’m afraid they will be unable to sleep peacefully and have no appetite to eat…" Sword Young Master thought in his heart and silently mourned for the Azure Forest Tri-Sect.
"Abnormal!" Sima Yang was unable to speak for a long time, and he finally spat out a word.
Besides Ji Feng, Sword Young Master, and Sima Yang, the Crazy Young Master, Luo Zhan, was one of the few that were the first to recover from their shock…
Luo Zhan had an extremely complicated gaze as he looked at Duan Ling Tian’s proud and aloof figure.
For the first time, bitterness that was difficult to speak about had arisen within his heart.
What five great young masters? It’s only a joke!
Before this young man, all the five great young masters including him were nothing worth mentioning.
Meanwhile, the remaining people had recovered from their shock as well.
For a time, it was like a stone had caused a thousand ripples.
"Abnormal! Too abnormal!"
"Exactly! He’s too abnormal! No wonder he was so confident and was the first to toss away the rice soup and mantou that belonged to the Outer Hall students. So it turned out that he possesses such a terrifying strength."
"First level Void Prying Stage and Half-step Advanced Lightning Force… His strength isn’t inferior to Sword Young Master!"
"How old is he? No matter how well he has taken care of his appearance, he’s surely not older than Sword Young Master, right?"
Many Outer Hall students discussed animatedly.
They were exceedingly astounded that Duan Ling Tian was able to achieve such accomplishments at such a young age.
"Hmph! Hmph! Take good care of his appearance? Let me tell all of you, his true age is no difference from how he looks!"
"Exactly, he isn’t even 25 this year!"
"Take good care of his appearance? To think all of you were able to think of such a thing like this!"
Those students that had seen Duan Ling Tian fight outside the academy gates earlier and knew of Duan Ling Tian’s background couldn’t refrain from speaking out.
"What do all of you mean? Could it be that all of you know him?"
Instantly, the group of Outer Hall students that were ignorant asked curiously.
"Of course! Do all of you know who he is?"
"Let me tell all of you! He is the person whose name has been spread and give rise to much discussion in our Azure Forest Imperial Kingdom, the Seven Star Sword Sect’s genius disciple, Duan Ling Tian!"
"Duan Ling Tian, all of you ought to have heard of him, right?"
In next to no time, the group of Outer Hall students that knew of Duan Ling Tian’s background provided an explosive reveal!
Instantly, the entire Outer Hall of the Dragon and Phoenix Academy was in a complete stir.
"He… He’s that Duan Ling Tian?"
"Oh my god! So it’s him!"
"I was wondering why such a little freak would suddenly appear in our Azure Forest Imperial Kingdom… So it turns out he’s the Seven Star Sword Sect’s genius disciple, Duan Ling Tian."
"I heard long ago that the Seven Star Sword Sect’s genius disciple Duan Ling Tian was a monstrous genius in the Martial Dao that’s unprecedented in the history of our Azure Forest Imperial Kingdom… Now that I’ve met him today, he really does deserve his reputation!"
The numerous burning gazes of the Outer Hall students had all descended onto Duan Ling Tian, and none of them were stingy with their words of praise.
"He’s Duan Ling Tian?!" Beside Sword Young Master, Ji Feng, and Sima Yang, the gazes the other Inner Hall students shot at Duan Ling Tian had completely changed.
"Duan Ling Tian!" Especially Crazy Young Master, Luo Zhan. He’d heard of Duan Ling Tian long ago, and even knew that Duan Ling Tian had once defeat Saber Young Master and Zither Young Master one after the other. Duan Ling Tian had even been publicly acknowledged as the peerless genius that surpassed the five great young masters of the Azure Forest Imperial Kingdom.
"Not older than 25 years, yet possesses a cultivation at the first level of the Void Prying Stage and has comprehended Half-step Advanced Lightning Force… Duan Ling Tian has indeed surpassed the five of us." Crazy Young Master sighed in his heart.
Of course, he didn’t become discouraged because of this.
His gaze became even fuller of desire. "Duan Ling Tian isn’t a match for me right now… What I have to do now is continue forward and not allow him to catch up!"
Perhaps, even Duan Ling Tian himself never imagined that he would actually make Crazy Young Master, who was ranked first amongst the five great young masters, feel pressure.
Presently, Duan Ling Tian had a carefree expression when facing the gazes of admiration of the group of Outer Hall students, and he remained unmoved.
It was difficult for all of this to create a wave in his heart.
"So he’s that Duan Ling Tian, neither arrogant nor humble, he’s indeed an exceptional genius." The old man that stood outside the exquisite house nodded in satisfaction, and the gaze he shot at Duan Ling Tian was filled with smiles.
Duan Ling Tian’s appearance in the Dragon and Phoenix Academy was undoubtedly a hugely pleasant surprise to him.
"If his Majesty knows that Duan Ling Tian has come to the Dragon and Phoenix Academy and even possess such a shocking strength… He will probably be interested in Duan Ling Tian as well." The old man thought in his heart.
"Duan Ling Tian! He’s actually Duan Ling Tian…" Chai Jin gazed at Duan Ling Tian’s back and his heart shook.
He suddenly felt that it wasn’t injustice that he’d lost.
After all, Duan Ling Tian had defeated Zither Young Master, who was ranked third amongst the five great young masters, more than a year ago.
It wasn’t surprising that Duan Ling Tian had defeated him now.
But when he recalled the humiliation Duan Ling Tian gave him earlier, he couldn’t help but reveal a sheen of ruthlessness in his eyes. "Duan Ling Tian, even if your strength is stronger than mine… The way the disciples of our Black Fiend Sect do things doesn’t completely rely on our strength!"
"Don’t allow me to find a chance, otherwise, I’ll make you die a graveless death!" Chai Jin’s face was covered in icy cold killing intent.
Although Duan Ling Tian was currently standing with his back towards Chai Jin, as a weapons specialist that had walked through seas of blood and mountains of corpses, he had a special sense towards killing intent, and he’s sensed Chai Jin’s killing intent at the first possible moment.
Instantly, Duan Ling Tian’s gaze went cold.
"Hmph!" The corners of Duan Ling Tian’s mouth curled into a wisp of an evil smile as killing intent emerged in his heart. "If this Chai Jin still remains muddleheaded… Then he’s dead!"
Subsequently, Duan Ling Tian walked over towards the group of Inner Hall students under the gaze of everyone present.
"Duan Ling Tian is going to challenge the Inner Hall students already?" The group of Outer Hall students seemed as if they’d discovered a new continent when they saw this scene.
"I hope he’ll challenge Crazy Young Master or Sword Young Master…"
"Yeah, if he battles Crazy Young Master or Sword Young Master, then it will surely be extremely brilliant!"
Many Outer Hall students had expressions of anticipation as they looked at Duan Ling Tian.
Whereas unlike the Outer Hall students, the hearts of those people whose strengths were at the bottom of the group of Inner Hall students started thumping when they saw Duan Ling Tian walk over.
If Duan Ling Tian chose them, then they would probably have to leave the Inner Hall.
Although they knew since long ago that this moment would arrive…
After all, the young geniuses from everywhere around the Azure Forest Imperial Kingdom would gather here within these few days, and there was no lack of people who had strengths that surpassed them.
But when this moment really arrived, their hearts were still filled with unwillingness.
Leaving the Inner Hall would mean that they would be degraded back to an Outer Hall student once again.
Once they were degraded into an Outer Hall student, they wouldn’t have a spacious courtyard to stay in and could only stay in those tattered tents; they wouldn’t be able to enjoy fine wine and delicacies, and could only eat rice soup and moldy mantous.
They were unwilling to face this great drop.
At this moment, they hoped so much that Duan Ling Tian wouldn’t choose them.
"You." Under the gazes of disappointment from the group of Outer Hall students, Duan Ling Tian casually choose an Inner Hall student with a cultivation at the ninth level of the Nascent Soul Stage.
Although he didn’t get angry, but he still has a bitter smile on his face when he was chosen by Duan Ling Tian.
He never imagined that he would be so unfortunate.
"Do you still want to battle me?" Duan Ling Tian looked at this Inner Hall student and he forced out a faint smile on his face.
The Inner Hall student hurriedly shook his head.
"Then thank you." Duan Ling Tian smiled amiably, and it caused this Inner Hall student to feel as if he was washed in a spring breeze.
Subsequently, this Inner Hall student knew his limitations well and left the Inner Hall, then passed through the gate between the Inner Hall and Outer Hall before once again entering into the Outer Hall.
But not a single people laughed at him.
Everyone had seen Duan Ling Tian’s strength earlier, and it was something that an ordinary person was unable to reach.
It wasn’t shameful to admit defeat before Duan Ling Tian.
