War Sovereign Soaring The Heavens - Chapter 3290 - You Can Try
Chapter 3290: You Can Try
“It seems like you know what I’m talking about…” Lei Jun knew Han Yun Jin knew what was in his mind when he saw the shocked expression on Han Yun Jin’s face. He said frankly, “That’s right. I plan to hire them. I’m sure you know it won’t be cheap. Therefore, I came to look for you so we can share the cost…”
It was too costly to hire the two titled Celestial Emperors to assassinate someone. If Lei Jun could afford it on his own, he would not have revealed his plan to Lei Jun.
Han Yun Jin scoffed. “It’s your idea to hire someone to assassinate Duan Ling Tian. I have nothing to do with it so why should I bear the cost of hiring the assassins?”
“I’ll leave then since you are not interested,” Lei Jun replied indifferently through Voice Transmission. As he turned around to leave, he added, “After all, I’m not the one who has to fight Duan Ling Tian in a life-or-death battle in three years…”
Han Yun Jin’s expression changed when he saw Lei Jun was about to leave. He called out, “Wait!”
It was as Lei Jun had said. Han Yun Jin was not completely certain he would be able to kill Duan Ling Tian during their life-or-death battle in the future. This was because Duan Ling Tian was too strange and unpredictable. Regardless if it was his battle with Liu Jian or his junior brother, Fan Qi, no one had thought Duan Ling Tian would win. Nevertheless, he ended up winning both battles gloriously. What if Duan Ling Tian continued on his winning streak? He had no wish of becoming a stepping stone for Duan Ling Tian to achieve greater fame.
“What? Did you change your mind?” Lei Jun turned around and stared at Han Yun Jin intently. “Think about it first. The price of hiring those two is high. Even you might not be able to afford the price of hiring them.”
Han Yun Jin said in a deep voice, “To think of hiring those two, it seems like you’re really determined to get rid of Duan Ling Tian. To do all this for a woman… is it worth it?”
“As long as he dies, it’s worth it no matter the price,” Lei Jun replied indifferently.
Duan Ling Tian’s talent and aptitude for cultivation frightened Lei Jun and brought him a sense of crisis. Duan Ling Tian, who was not even 300 years old, managed to comprehend all the profundities from the law of space to the mastery stage. Even if Duan Ling Tian’s cultivation base was not particularly high at the moment, his comprehension of the law was enough to prove his talent. At this moment, he was not confident he would be able to defeat Duan Ling Tian in a battle. Given time, Duan Ling Tian would only grow stronger and stronger. He was certain of this since Duan Ling Tian dared to enter a life-or-death battle with Han Yun Jin in three years. Even he, himself, did not dare to do such a thing. Therefore, he knew it was imperative for him to get rid of Duan Ling Tian now. Otherwise, it would be impossible once Duan Ling Tian had grown strong enough. At that time, he could only watch helplessly as his Third Junior Sister continued to stay by Duan Ling Tian’s side. He was not willing to see something like that happening as long as there was something he could do about it.
“Even if we pool our resources together and manage to hire those two… They still won’t have a chance to kill Duan Ling Tian if stays hidden in the Heavenly Pool Palace.” Han Yun Jin gave voice to his concerns. Based on his words, it seemed like he was willing to go along with Lei Jun’s plan of hiring the two titled Celestial Emperors to assassinate Duan Ling Tian.
Lei Jun’s concern was valid. The Heavenly Pool Palace was a heaven-grade force, after all. Not anyone could simply break into the Heavenly Pool Palace. If the two titled Celestial Emperors tried to break in, it was likely that they would be killed by the palace’s titled Celestial Emperors before they could even get to Duan Ling Tian. Therefore, if Duan Ling Tian remained in the Heavenly Pool Palace’s estate, the two titled Celestial Emperors would not be able to assassinate him.
“Naturally, I’ve thought about this as well,” Lei Jun said with a smile, “I wouldn’t have come to you nor would I have thought of this plan if Duan Ling Tian was in the Heavenly Pool Palace. However, I know for a fact that he has left the palace’s estate for the Title Temple with the Verdant Prairie Celestial Emperor. He has probably gone there to obtain a title.”
Lei Jun’s eyes shone with killing intent as he said viciously, “The plan should work if the two titled Celestial Emperors assassinate him during their journey back to the estate. One of them can hold off Xu Lang while the other kills Duan Ling Tian. The odds are in our favor.”
“He went to the Title Temple?” Han Yun Jin was stunned. He did not expect his opponent would go to the Title Temple instead of cultivating in the Heavenly Pool Palace. However, now that he knew Duan Ling Tian was not in the Heavenly Pool Palace, he no longer hesitated. He asked, “Lei Jun, how are you going to contact those two?”
“Since I came to you and proposed this plan, I, naturally, have a way of contacting them,” Lei Jun said with a faint smile on his face, “I only looked for you because I need someone to share the cost with me. If you agree, I’ll contact them immediately and have them intercept Duan Ling Tian during his journey back to the palace’s estate.”
“Alright!” Han Yun Jin gritted his teeth and agreed to Lei Jun’s plan even if his heart ached at the thought of having to spend so much.
Although there was a Title Temple in every Devata Realms, all of them shared the same testing ground for Celestial Lords and Celestial Emperors. The testing ground was a secret realm that was independent of all the Devata Realms.
“I’ve reached my limits.” After a month, Duan Ling Tian could no longer withstand the crushing pressure. He could only temporarily stop refining the energy from the Pine Willow Divine Tree for now.
Duan Ling Tian wasted no time in attacking so he could break free of the place. He wielded the Seven Orifices Exquisite Sword and used the space energy to attack, easily freeing himself.
As soon as Duan Ling Tian broke free of his imprisonment, his vision went dark for a moment. When he recovered his sight, he discovered he was standing on a platform with four other people around him.
“You’re finally here,” Ji Xuan from the Blood Dragon Clan in the Ten Thousand Beasts Heaven scoffed as he said coldly, “You must be an ordinary disciple in the Heavenly Pool Palace. There’s no way you’re a prodigious disciple. How dare you enter the Title Temple or even think about obtaining a title when you’re so weak? You truly have a death wish. If we didn’t agree to work together, I would’ve killed you a long time ago.”
It was not surprising that Ji Xuan assumed Duan Ling Tian was weak since Duan Ling Tian took such a long time before he managed to break free.
Duan Ling Tian only glanced at Ji Xuan before he said indifferently, “You can try…” It was not difficult for him to figure out what was in Ji Xuan’s mind.
“I will. What? Did you think I’ll be afraid of you?” Ji Xuan sneered. “Anyway, we’ve already completed the obstacle so there’s no need to maintain our number. Coincidentally, I only need to kill another two people to leave this place. After killing you, I only need to kill one more person before I can leave and obtain a title.”
As soon as Ji Xuan finished speaking, an explosive blood-red energy surged out of his body immediately.
A thunderous explosion rang in the air as the platform began cracking near Ji Xuan.
Swoosh! Swoosh! Swoosh! Swoosh! Swoosh!
As Ji Xuan charged toward Duan Ling Tian, he began to form numerous blood-red saber rays that emitted a terrifying aura. At the same time, a cold air began to permeate the surroundings, causing the temperature to fall.
“Die!” Ji Xuan cried out as he struck. At this moment, a saber appeared in his hand. In just a blink of an eye, the blood-red saber rays shot into the saber and merged with it.
A piercing saber cry rang in the air as Ji Xuan brought his saber down toward Duan Ling Tian.
Everything happened so quickly that Meng Hao Xuan, who was standing at the edge of the altar, had no time to stop the fight.
As for the other two people in the group, their expressions changed drastically when they saw Ji Xuan attacking. They hurriedly moved out of the way to avoid getting injured since they knew they were slightly weaker than Ji Xuan. However, after seeing the strength Ji Xuan displayed, they realized Ji Xuan was not only slightly stronger than them. The gap between their strength was rather wide. In fact, even if both of them joined forces, they were not certain they would be able to defeat Ji Xuan.
Meanwhile, Duan Ling Tian said indifferently, “Hey, just revert to your true form.” As he spoke, his Celestial Origin Energy coursed through his 99 Heavenly Veins. The Space Elemental Profundity boosted his Celestial Origin Energy as it surged out of his body.
At the same time, Duan Ling Tian had used the mysterious Transportation Profundity and moved some of Ji Xuan’s attacks away, decreasing the attack’s force by half.
Duan Ling Tian raised his right hand before a seven-color sword ray shot out of his palm. As it hovered in the air, it transformed into a three-foot-long sword that shone with seven colors.
After Duan Ling Tian wielded the three-foot-long sword, nine grey sword rays shot out of spatial tears and merged with a seven-colored sword ray after he cast the Cross-Dimensional Slash Profundity. It crashed against Ji Xuan’s onslaught of attacks.
A crisp noise rang in the air as everyone watched Duan Ling Tian’s attack cleaved Ji Xuan’s blood-red sabers into two.
Following that, before the blood-red sabers could even draw close to Duan Ling Tian, it exploded into pieces.
In comparison, the seven-colored sword in Duan Ling Tian’s hand only dimmed a little.
Meanwhile, after crushing Ji Xuan’s attacks, the seven-color sword ray continued shooting toward Ji Xuan.
“How powerful!” Meng Hao Xan exclaimed in shock. He did not expect Duan Ling Tian to win after all. Similar to Ji Xuan, since Duan Ling Tian was the last break free, he assumed Duan Ling Tian was the weakest among them. However, he realized how wrong his assumption was after watching Duan Ling Tian.
At this moment, a hint of fear could be seen in Ji Xuan’s eyes as he looked at the incoming seven-colored sword ray. Soon enough, an angry roar escaped from his throat!
