War Sovereign Soaring The Heavens Chapter 47


"Ke Er, I'll go in from the front and take care of the seven wolves there. While I attract their attention, you attack from behind and take care of the three in the back."

Smiling to the young girl, Duan Ling Tian flew out.

Spirit Serpent Movement Technique!

He directly crossed over to arrive near the wild wolves, attracting the attention of the ten wild wolves.

The young girl whose delicate figure was slightly trembling, took a deep breath and grit her teeth as she suppressed the fear in her heart, flying out as she made her way to the back of the ten wolves.

Sword Drawing Arts!

Duan Ling Tian started his attack.

Whoosh!

The violet sword shine flashed before instantly disappearing.

Puchi!

A wild wolf howled before dropping to the ground as a pillar of blood sprayed out from it.

The smell of blood caused the remaining nine wolves' eyes to become crimson red, growling as they rushed towards Duan Ling Tian.

The six wild wolves that were at the front bared their fangs as they pounced towards Duan Ling Tian.

Spirit Serpent Movement Technique!

Duan Ling Tian's body was as flexible as a spirit serpent; his legs stepped swiftly as he skillfully dodged the wild wolves' pouncing strikes, seeming as if he was playing around with them.

Each time his Violet Meteorite Flexible Sword swept out, it took with it a wild wolf's life.

After a short moment, the wild wolves that pounced towards him had all died.

On the other side.

The young girl finally mustered up enough courage, holding back the three wolves in the back.

Sword Drawing Arts!

Whoosh!

A violet sword shine appeared.

Instantly, one of the wolves that pounced towards her had its throat sliced open, and warm wolf blood sprayed all over her face.

The nose-piercing smell of blood caused the young girl's stomach to churn.

"Be careful!"

Noticing the other two wild wolves pouncing towards the young girl while she was filled with terror and unable to move, Duan Ling Tian moved.

Whoosh!

The two wild wolves were killed with merely a single sword strike.

The young girl could not bear it any longer, vomiting out her breakfast as her face became pale.

"Hmm?"

Suddenly, as if noticing something, Duan Ling Tian's expression turned grim.

Run!

Without hesitation, Duan Ling Tian pulled the young girl into his arms before flying up a nearby tree.

Spirit Serpent Movement Technique!

He coiled up the tree like a spirit serpent until he arrived at the tree's top.

Howl!

Howl!

……

At this moment, near the corpses of the ten wild wolves were another few packs of wolves, and their amount was still increasing…

The howls of the wolves were filled with rage.

Looking at the surroundings filled with wolf packs, Duan Ling Tian started feeling anxious.

Holding the young girl tight in his arms, he jumped over to another tree.

Using the trees as a road, he moved forward…

Suddenly, an eagle's cry sounded and was approaching.

Duan Ling Tian abruptly raised his head, vaguely able to see a black figure swooping down from above.

Its target was him and Ke Er!

"Not good!"

Duan Ling Tian's expression turned grim.

"Ke Er, are you feeling better?"

Subsequently, he looked towards the young girl in his embrace.

The young girl lightly nodded.

"Then stand here and don't move."

Putting the young girl down, Duan Ling Tian's gaze turned slightly cold.

Spirit Serpent Movement Technique!

Using the tree's trunk as the ground, he used it to assist himself to fly upwards to meet the black figure that was swooping down.

The eagle's cry was getting closer by the moment.

The black eagle had wings like the clouds, its eyes emitting a swift and fierce gaze as it swooped down towards Duan Ling Tian. Under the burning sun, its pair of claws seemed to flicker with a sharp sheen.

"Die!"

Duan Ling Tian's heart was quiet like water with a cold gaze that stared fixedly at the eagle's claws.

Sword Drawing Arts!

Whoosh!

Violet Meteorite Flexible Sword swept out without restraint.

The ear piercing eagle cry sounded, mixed with a trace of shrillness.

"Damn, its speed is so fast."

Duan Ling Tian had an astonished expression as the Violet Meteorite Flexible Sword that he swept towards the eagle only sliced off one of its claws.

Whoosh!

The eagle went berserk with rage, flapping its wings as it moved to attack once more.

Even when Duan Ling Tian send the Violet Meteorite Flexible Sword piercing into its chest, before it died, it still spared no effort to slap its right wing towards Duan Ling Tian's chest, creating an ear piercing wind howl.

Greater Teleportation!

Without hesitation, Duan Ling Tian circulated his defensive martial skill!

Bang!

The huge wing slapped onto Duan Ling Tian's chest.

Duan Ling Tian's body trembled and his throat tasted something sweet, then he spat out a mouthful of blood.

Although Greater Teleportation blocked most of the force and even used the power of teleportation to throw the eagle's body far away, Duan Ling Tian's internal organs were still slightly injured from the shock.

"The strength of this eagle was in no way inferior to mine, nearly comparable to a martial artist at the ninth level of the Body Tempering stage.

Duan Ling Tian felt shocked.

"Young Master, you're OK, right?"

The young girl had finally recovered slightly. She stepped on the tree trunks and flew over, arriving at Duan Ling Tian's side.

"Young master, you're injured!"

When she noticed the trace of blood on the corner of Duan Ling Tian's mouth, the young girl's expression turned grim.

"It alright, it's only a slight injury."

Duan Ling Tian shook his head. His heart slightly twitched as he thought this.

A human martial artist required the increase of the stage of cultivation of a martial skill in order be able to better utilize their strength.

But animals like the eagle that were birds of prey at the top of the food chain, living in nature's survival of the fittest, they long since tempered themselves to gain methods to fully utilize their strength.

Tearing a tiger or leopard alive, catching a python by force, it was all possible.

The method in which the eagle attacked Duan Ling Tian earlier, in terms of might was comparable to a Mastery Stage high grade Profound Rank offensive martial skill executed by a martial artist at the eighth level of the Body Tempering stage!

Luckily, Duan Ling Tian was able to kill it in time, causing it to not have enough strength to continue the attack.

Or else Duan Ling Tian would have surely been heavily injured!

"Young Master, it's all because Ke Er is useless."

The young girl's eyes dripped with tears.

"What are you talking about? My Ke Er is very brave, killing a wolf on her first attack…Take it slow, you can't rush it."

Duan Ling Tian comforted her.

The young girl lightly nodded, her clear eyes emitting a firm expression.

Consuming a grade nine Gold Injury Pill, Duan Ling Tian brought Ke Er along as they continued to move forward slowly on the ground.

When he left the Fresh Breeze Town Li family, Grand Elder Li Huo gave Duan Ling Tian quite a few grade nine Gold Injury Pills.

Subsequently, throughout their journey, Duan Ling Tian noticed that the young girl seemed to have completed a metamorphosis in a short while. Even when killing tigers or leopards, her expression would only slightly change, no more vomiting out of disgust like before.

The young girl's staunchness caused Duan Ling Tian to feel gratified, but at the same time he felt his heart ache.

"Young Master, there's a lot of fog over there.

The young girl looked to the front.

The forest a few hundred meters away was enveloped in a white fog, as if wearing a mysterious mask.

This was exactly the reason how Misty Forest got its name.

"That should be the inner area of Misty Forest, the area where fierce beasts roam… Ke Er, we're more or less finished today, so let's go home and come back tomorrow."

Duan Ling Tian and the young girl brought their spoils as they walked back on the same path as before.

When they passed the place where the wolves were killed, they noticed that the wolf corpses had vanished, only leaving behind dried wolf blood.

Probably taken care of by the wolf packs.

Riding their horses back, the setting sun was going down when the couple finally arrived back at Aurora City.

After taking care of their spoils in Aurora City, trading them for 1,300+ silver, the couple returned to the Li Clan Estate.

Just when the Li Clan main door was in front of their eyes, a stern shout sounded from behind them.

"Duan Ling Tian!"

Duan Ling Tian stopped his footsteps.

He recognized the owner of the voice.

Li Xiao.

He didn't expect Li Xiao to still dare to come and make trouble for him.

Slowly turning around, Duan Ling Tian saw Li Xiao standing not far away. Beside him was another youth around the age of eighteen.

The youth's appearance seemed slightly similar to Li Xiao's.

"Brother, he is Duan Ling Tian. You must help me teach him a lesson," Li Xiao said to the youth beside him.

After hearing what he said, Duan Ling Tian's gaze flickered as he guessed who the youth was.

He had once heard Li Shi Shi talk about him. Li Xiao had a brother who became an inner court disciple in the Clan Martial Meet one year ago.

Li Zhong, currently eighteen years old, stepped into the Core Formation Stage three months ago.

"Calling you trash was indeed not wrong; now you can't even defeat a little kid. Don't you feel ashamed?"

Li Zhong didn't give a shred of face to his own little brother.

Li Xiao could only embarrassedly smile.

"So it was you who beat up my little brother?"

Li Zhong looked coldly at Duan Ling Tian in a condescending manner.

"Whatever he said."

Duan Ling Tian shrugged his shoulders.

"Although Li Xiao is trash, he is still my, Li Zhong's, little brother. You beating him caused me to lose face as well. Don't you think you should give me an explanation?"

Li Zhong sneered.

In his heart, however, he was slightly shocked.

He heard from his little brother that even Li Yuan was not a match for this youth.

This youth was only sixteen.

A sixteen-year-old eighth level Body Tempering stage main clan disciple wasn't something the Li Clan lacked.

But there were none that could defeat Li Yuan.

"If I didn't guess wrong, as an eighteen year old inner court disciple, you will participate in the Clan Martial Meet half a month from now… If you want to help your little brother and teach me a lesson, you don't have to be so anxious," Duan Ling Tian's eyes narrowed as he said indifferently.

The Li Clan's Martial Meet was the stage for the younger generation.

Li Clan disciples at the ages of sixteen through eighteen, no matter whether they were inner or outer court disciples, would all be allowed to participate.

"Brother, don't listen to him; he's purposely delaying," Li Xiao hurriedly said.

Duan Ling Tian was straightforward, staring at Li Zhong as he slowly said, "You're right, I'm delaying. I admit I'm not a match for you now, but in half a month, who loses to who is still unknown."

"Interesting, truly interesting…If you'a at the eighth level of the Body Tempering stage, in half a month you will be able to break through to the ninth level at most. I really want to see what you will rely upon to fight me half a month from now!"

Li Zhong's eyes narrowed into a line, disdainfully laughing as he turned around and left.

"Brother!"

Li Xiao was anxious.

Noticing Duan Ling Tian's cold gaze sweeping over, Li Xiao's expression was slightly fearful. He hurriedly caught up to Li Zhong and left.

"This Li Zhong is exactly as Li Shi Shi said, obsessed with martial arts.

Duan Ling Tian lightly smiled.

"Young Master, how do you know?" the young girl beside him asked.

"My Ke Er's appearance is like a flower's, but he actually didn't even take an extra glance. If he isn't obsessed with martial arts, then what is he?"

Duan Ling Tian laughed loudly.

"Young Master, you're teasing me again."

The young girl instantly blushed.

"OK, let's go home. We can't let mom wait too long."

During the time that Duan Ling Tian and Ke Er returned home.

In the Aurora City trade market.

"The three great clans' Clan Martial Meet is about to begin, and the Body Tempering Pills have all been swept clean, so unlucky!"

Muttering to himself, a youth of around sixteen and in embroidered clothing walked into the medicine store under the watch of his two middle-aged bodyguards.

"Young Master Xiao."

Noticing the person who arrived, the manager's face was full of smiles.

There were three colossi in Aurora City, respectively being the Li Clan, the Lin Clan, and the Xiao Clan.

He instantly recognized this person. It was indeed the Xiao Clan's Patriarch's youngest son.

"Manager, give me three sets of the medicinal materials to refine Body Tempering Pills," the youth in embroidered clothing said to the manager.

The manager lightly smiled as he asked, "Young Master Xiao, I have a new batch of medicinal liquid here. Its effects are the same as Body Tempering Pill's, but its ability to increase the speed of cultivation is double compared to the Body Tempering Pill. Are you interested?"
