War Sovereign Soaring The Heavens - Chapter 3866
Chapter 3866: Intercept
Kuang Tian Zheng asked skeptically, “Vice Sect Leader Xue, could this be a trap?”
It was only natural that Kuang Tian Zheng was wary. Duan Ling Tian had always been cautious previously. Why would Duan Ling Tian suddenly leave Sikong Ye’s cultivation ground alone as though he was asking to be attacked? It was too strange.
Xue Ming Zhi replied with a scoff, “I’m hidden outside Revered Elder Sikong’s cultivation ground. After Duan Ling Tian left, no one came out. Moreover, I don’t sense another person’s Divine Consciousness on him as well. Apart from that, the Black Dragon Elder patrolling the area today is my junior brother. If you fail to kill him with one move, I can buy you some time before the others are alerted. Try to kill Duan Ling Tian in three breaths.
Xue Ming Zhi continued saying, “I know what you’re worried about. Although I find it strange as well, I’ve confirmed that nothing is out of the ordinary. Perhaps, he was just too bored after being cooped up for so long so he plans to enter the Imperial War Realm. Even if he’s prohibited from entering the King Battlefield, there are many things to do in Flying Dragon City and Peace City. Hurry up and act. He’s going to leave the range of the area where my junior brother is patrolling soon. If you miss the opportunity and allow him to live, you’ll die for sure!”
Xue Ming Zhi’s voice turned frosty nearing the end of his sentence.
Kuang Tian Zheng’s eyes narrowed slightly upon hearing Xue Ming Zhi’s reply. Although he felt slightly relieved, he was also still worried. Indeed, he had been prepared to be executed by the sect, but if it was possible, he naturally wanted to live. He quickly sent a message to Xue Ming Zhi again, seeking confirmation.
“Vice Sect Leader Xue, you confirmed that he’s alone and that you didn’t sense another person’s Divine Consciousness on him. Do you think he’s so bold because he’s become a Lord of Gods?”
Kuang Tian Zheng spoke very fast as though he did not want to waste time. At the same time, he was also making his way toward Duan Ling Tian.
Upon hearing Kuang Tian Zheng’s words, Xue Ming Zhi sneered. “Lord of Gods? I’m sure you know when he broke through and became an advanced King of Gods. Do you really think he broke through again and became a Lord of Gods? That’s impossible unless he has lord-grade Limit Divine Pills to help him. The medicinal herbs needed to refine lord-grade Divine Pills are extremely rare. Even the sect doesn’t have most of the medicinal herbs.”
Xue Ming Zhi was very dismissive of Kuang Tian Zheng’s concern. He was very confident it was impossible for Duan Ling Tian to become a Lord of Gods. Moreover, Duan Ling Tian did not go out at all during this period of time, meaning that it was impossible for Duan Ling Tian to obtain any lord-grade Limit Divine Pills that could help improve his cultivation. As for refining lord-grade Limit Divine Pills, it was even more impossible. Put aside whether Duan Ling Tian could refine them or not, the Flying Dragon Sect’s reserves did not have all the medicinal herbs needed to refine them. Perhaps, there was a chance that Duan Ling Tian could break through if he already had lord-grade Divine Pills and Divine Fruits in his possession. However, he did not think Duan Ling Tian would be so ridiculously lucky as to possess so many treasures. For all these reasons, he was convinced it was impossible for Duan Ling Tian to become a Lord of Gods in such a short time. He wanted to act as soon as possible now that a golden opportunity had presented itself.
“Go intercept him near the Wondrous Proclamation Peak in Roving Dragon Mountain. I’ll buy you some time. It’s best if you can kill him with one strike. If you can’t, you have to do it within three breaths,” Xue Ming Zhi said sternly, “If you can’t kill him within three breaths, you have to bring him away no matter what! Once you make a move, whether he dies or not, you’ll die if you leave any traces behind. You should know this better than I do.”
Xue Ming Zhi continued to say, “Although it’s highly unlikely, you can only blame yourself for being unlucky if he has truly become a Lord of Gods. Don’t worry. Ifyou die, I’ll take care of your people. After all, your second disciple, Zhong Can, is my son-in-law. After that, I’ll bring a Lord of God to the sect and let him be an elder so he can find a chance to kill Duan Ling Tian and avenge you.”
Kuang Tian Zheng felt even more reassured after listening to Xue Ming Zhi’s words. Although there was still a risk, he felt the risk was rather small after listening to Xue Ming Zhi.
Although Kuang Tian Zheng was the one who brought up the possibility of Duan Ling Tian being a Lord of Gods now, he did not really think it was possible either.
It was already considered miraculous that Duan Ling Tian became an advanced King of Gods when he was not even 3,000 years old. If Duan Ling Tian truly became a Lord of Gods at this time, he would be the first person to become a Lord of Gods before reaching the age of 3,000 in the Eastern Ridge Mansion.
Nonetheless, Kuang Tian Zheng was still very cautious. He asked Xue Ming Zhi, “Vice Sect Leader Xue, is there a way for you to check his cultivation base?”
“I’ll alert him if I check his cultivation base now. He’s an advanced King of Gods, after all, and I’m just a Lord of Gods. He’ll definitely sense my Divine Consciousness if I probe him. I’m sure you don’t want to risk alerting him and ruining this golden opportunity, right? The chances of him breaking through and becoming a Lord of Gods are very low. This is a risk worth taking; we have to act now!”
With this, Kuang Tian Zheng knew he had no other choice but to act now.
The Flying Dragon Sect was home to nine mountain ranges, and the Roving Dragon Mountains were one of them. The Wondrous Proclamation Peak was one of the mountains in the Roving Dragon Mountains. It was not the tallest nor the lowest; it was rather inconspicuous, and there were not many people around it.
At this time, the purple-clad Duan Ling Tian could be seen flying over the Wondrous Proclamation Peak toward the entrance of the Imperial War Realm in the Flying Dragon Sect’s estate. Suddenly, his expression changed.
Accompanied by a thunderous explosion, a violent energy with the might of the thunder swept up from the Wondrous Proclamation Peak and swept over Duan Ling Tian.
At the same time, Kuang Tian Zheng, who was hidden on Wondrous Proclamation Peak, sighed in relief upon seeing this. In fact, there was no need for him to hide. Based on his attacks, most of the members of the Flying Dragon Sect could identify him. Fortunately, Kuang Tian Zheng’s junior brother was patrolling this area today. All he had to do now was make sure that Duan Ling Tian was dead.
Kuang Tian Zheng flew up after his attack subsided to confirm Duan Ling Tian’s death. Alas, his expression changed drastically when he realized that his attack seemed to have landed on Duan Ling Tian’s clone.
At this time, Duan Ling Tian appeared in the air nearby. He crossed his arms and looked at Kuang Tian Zheng with an expression of ridicule on his face as he said, “Elder Kuang, you really don’t know when to give up, do you? You failed to kill me when I was in the Linghu clan, and today, you failed again in the Flying Dragon Sect. It seems like you have no regard for the sect’s rule that prohibits members from killing each other.”
Kuang Tian Zheng did not have time to listen to Duan Ling Tian. As soon as he discovered Duan Ling Tian was alive, he attacked again. After all, Xue Ming Zhi’s words were deeply ingrained in his mind. He had three breaths to kill Duan Ling Tian. As he attacked, he said, “Duan Ling Tian, I really didn’t expect you to become a Lord of Gods! Alas, you’re still going to die today!”
At this time, Kuang Tian Zheng reassured himself that even though Duan Ling Tian was now a rudimentary Lord of Gods, Duan Ling Tian must have yet to stabilize his cultivation.
“I’m afraid you’ll be disappointed,” Duan Ling Tian said.
Following that, a spatial storm appeared as a sword ray flew out, blocking Kuang Tian Zheng’s attack. Then, Duan Ling Tian teleported away.
At this time, two breaths had passed.
‘I only have one breath left!’
At this time, Kuang Tian Zheng could already sense several powerful auras flying toward this place from different directions.
Although Xue Ming Zhi’s junior brother, who was a Black Dragon Elder, could help him stall for time, it was impossible for Xue Ming Zhi to control the other White Dragon Elders on patrol. Moreover, the more people who were involved in the matter, the higher the likelihood of him being found out. Apart from that, it was still understandable if the Black Dragon Elder arrived late,but if all of the elders on patrol arrived late, it would be too suspicious.
“Duan Ling Tian, die!” Kuang Tian Zheng cried out. The auras that were approaching pressured him greatly, and he was determined to kill Duan Ling Tian. All of sudden, blood began to flow out of his seven orifices. Then, in a twist, the blood seemed to turn into a cloud of energy before it surged back into his body. Following that, a terrifying and bloodthirsty aura surged from his body immediately.
