A Nine-clawed Dragon Warrior!
A Nine-clawed Dragon Warrior was a legendary figure to most of Four Symbols Sanctums’ disciples, including Hong Xu. Many Four Symbols Sanctum’s disciples felt as though they were dreaming. They could hardly believe they had witnessed a legendary figure with their own eyes. They even pinched themselves to make sure they were not dreaming.
It was real! Duan Ling Tian was really a Nine-clawed Dragon Warrior!
“Who would’ve thought Senior Brother Duan Ling Tian is a Nine-clawed Dragon Warrior… Senior Brother Hong Xu is not a match for Senior Brother Duan Ling Tian who has transformed into a Nine-clawed Dragon Warrior even after his strength has increased almost to the Saint Celestial Stage after he had taken the forbidden pill!”
“Yes, Senior Brother Hong Xu’s attack earlier is the strongest he could muster after taking the forbidden pill … The effects of the forbidden pill must have worn off by now. It’s impossible for Senior Brother Hong Xu to cast such an attack again!”
“Senior Brother Hong Xu’s going to lose!”
“Lose? Do you think it is possible Senior Brother Hong Xu is just going to lose? He
tried to kill Senior Brother Duan Ling Tian just a moment ago… Even if Senior
Brother Duan Ling Tian kills him, it’ll be regarded as self-defense. It won’t be considered as violating the rules of the Fire Worship Sect! Do you think Senior Brother Duan Ling Tian will let him off the hook?”
The Four Symbols Sanctums’ disciples whispered among themselves in shock when they saw Duan Ling Tian had transformed into a Nine-clawed Dragon Warrior. Soon after, they all concluded that Duan Ling Tian would kill Hong Xu.
Duan Ling Tian flapped his Golden Crow’s Wings and charged toward Hong Xu at his fastest speed. He was not worried Hong Xu would escape because he knew the effects of the forbidden pill would not last long. When the effects of the forbidden pill wore off, he would be like a sitting duck.
Duan Ling Tian thought Hong Xu would try and escape when he saw Duan Ling Tian charging at him. However, he discovered Hong Xu seemed to have no intention of running away. He stood in his spot motionlessly as though he was a statue.
“What does he intend to do?” Hong Xu’s strange behavior made Duan Ling Tian feel uneasy, causing him to stop a distance away to study Hong Xu. Although he wanted to kill Hong Xu, Hong Xu’s strange behavior caused him to feel wary.
“Duan Ling Tian!” A Voice Transmission rang clearly in Duan Ling Tian’s ears. He could tell it was Hong Xu. Duan Ling Tian frowned immediately.
What was Hong Xu trying to do? Was he going to beg for mercy?
“Duan Ling Tian, I know there’s nothing you want more than to kill me now… It’s only natural since I came to kill you today!” Hong Xu said, “I’m transmitting my voice to you because of my family, not for anything else. I know now that I’m no match for you even after consuming the forbidden pill, the Kismet Rejoining Pill, since you’re a Nine-clawed Dragon Warrior. Moreover, the effects of your assist-type Divine Ability is a lot longer than the Kismet Rejoining Pill. It’s impossible for me to kill you!”
The frown on Duan Ling Tian’s face eased a little when he heard this. It seemed like Hong Xu was aware of his own capability.
“The Kismet Rejoining Pill is a renowned forbidden pill in the Upper Province of Dao Martial Saint Land… The Kismet Rejoining Pill I consumed is just a low-grade Kismet Rejoining Pill. A high-grade Kismet Rejoining Pill can even boost the strength of a Saint Celestial Stage cultivator for a short period of time! A Kismet Rejoining Pill is a very precious pill as only a Quasi Celestial Grade Saint Refinement Master who’s focused on medicine refinement is able to refine a precious pill such as the Kismet Rejoining Pill,” Hong Xu continued to say.
Duan Ling Tian who had no knowledge of the Kismet Rejoining Pill finally gained some understanding about it. When he heard Hong Xu’s explanation, he could not help but ask, “A pill that only a Quasi Celestial Grade Saint Refinement Master can refine?”
“I’m telling you all these things because I hope you’ll do me a favor. I hope that after I die, you’ll inform my family to move away as quickly as possible!” Hong Xu’s Voice Transmission continued to ring in Duan Ling Tian’s ears, “I will tell you a secret to repay your kindness… I came here to kill you because our Black Turtle Sanctum’s First Silver Flame Elder Li An threatened me with my family! The forbidden pill, the Kismet Rejoining Pill, I consumed was also given by him.”
Hong Xu gritted his teeth when he mentioned Li An’s name.
Duan Ling Tian’s expression turned grim when he heard Hong Xu’s words. He did not doubt his words because he remembered the hint of helplessness in Hong Xu’s eyes when he first arrived. Duan Ling Tian was confused at that time, but now he finally understood the look in Hong Xu’s eyes then.
Hong Xu had no other choice with Li An threatening him. Duan Ling Tian’s intention of killing Hong Xu began to gradually fade. He became calmer as well. It seemed like Li An was the mastermind behind this.
“You can find an Enforcement Elder to report Li An!” Duan Ling Tian looked at Hong Xu and said using Voice Transmission, “If you feel that the Enforcement Elders are useless, you can report him in the Saint Land’s Enforcement Hall after you’ve passed the Saint Land Assessment and become a Saint Land disciple.
“It is useless,” Hong Xu replied using Voice Transmission with a forced smile on his face.
“Even if I succeed in reporting him, Li An will only be lightly punished. He’ll definitely seek revenge after the punishment. He probably won’t dare to seek revenge from me due to the rules in the sect, but he’ll definitely kill my family. If it’s not for my family, I wouldn’t have done as he told me to since he wouldn’t dare to recklessly attack me in the Fire Worship Sect.” Hong Xu paused for a moment before he said in an agonized voice, “Li An told me before I came here that regardless of the reason, if I fail to kill you, he won’t spare my family. I beg you, Duan Ling Tian. Please try and inform my family to leave as soon as possible to avoid Li An. I’m willing to do anything in my next life to repay your kindness if you’re willing to help me!” Hong Xu quickly hit his forehead with his palm to commit suicide as soon as he ended his Voice Transmission.
All the Four Symbols Sanctum’s disciples, including Duan Ling Tian, only regained their senses when Hong Xu’s body fell to the ground. Duan Ling Tian looked at Hong Xu’s body with a complex look in his eyes before he reverted to his human form.
The Four Symbols Sanctums’ disciples were shocked by what they saw.
“Senior Brother Hong Xu… committed suicide?”
“It seems like he’s worried Duan Ling Tian would torture him. Otherwise, there’s no reason for him to commit suicide.”
“It is better to commit suicide since death is unavoidable.” Although the Four Symbols Sanctums’ disciples were surprised by Hong Xu’s suicide, they understood his decision.
“Hong Xu is really useless!” The Black Turtle Sanctum’s disciple that was sent by Li An to monitor Hong Xu frowned after he saw Hong Xu had committed suicide. However, when his eyes shifted to Duan Ling Tian’s figure in the distance, an expression of fear appeared on his face. “I need to inform Elder Li An that Duan Ling Tian is a Nine-clawed Dragon Warrior as soon as possible!” He knew what it meant to be a Nine-clawed Dragon Warrior.
Soon after, four Bronze Flame Elders in the Punishment Zone of the Four Symbols Sanctums’ First Mine arrived. The Bronze Flame Elders were from the Azure Dragon Sanctum, White Tiger Sanctum, Vermillion Bird Sanctum, and the Black Turtle Sanctum respectively. They were very anxious when they heard this news and had rushed here immediately. They did not think Duan Ling Tian would be able to survive. Under normal circumstances, Hong Xu might not be able to kill Duan Ling Tian. However, it would not be difficult for him to kill Duan Ling Tian after consuming the forbidden pill.
They were worried Duan Ling Tian would die. Although they were not certain about Duan Ling Tian’s background, based on the way the Saint Land’s Enforcement Hall protected him, they felt his background had to be extraordinary. Otherwise, how did Duan Ling Tian gain the protection of the Saint Land’s Enforcement Hall with a mere yellow Innate Spiritual Root?
They were very worried that the Saint Land’s Enforcement Hall would blame them for Duan Ling Tian’s death, therefore they came as fast as they could.
However, they were shocked when they arrived at the scene. This was because they did not expect this.
“Hong Xu is dead?”
A Black Turtle Sanctum’s Bronze Flame Elder found Hong Xu’s body and his expression changed dramatically. He turned around to look before his gaze finally fell on Duan Ling Tian.
“He’s Duan Ling Tian?”
At the same time, the Bronze Flame Elders of the from the other three Sanctums also looked at Duan Ling Tian. Their eyes were filled with disbelief and surprise.
