War Sovereign Soaring The Heavens - Chapter 3258 - Two Monsters
Chapter 3258: Two Monsters
Those who joined the Heavenly Pool Palace before the age of 100 would undoubtedly have better achievements compared to those who joined when they were almost 1,000 years old.
“I’ll repeat one more time. Those who are under the age of 100, move here. Those who are between the ages of 100 to 200, here…” Lei Ying looked at the ten groups of people. “The tests for each group are different so it’s important that you’re in the right age group.”
As soon as Lei Ying finished speaking, six people began to move to the group of those below the age of 100.
‘Are they trying to cheat?’ Duan Ling Tian shook his head. He had a feeling those people would be in trouble soon. He did not think those people were under the age of 100. Otherwise, why would they only move to that age group after hearing that the tests would be based on one’s age and cultivation base?
After a dozen breaths, Lei Ying brought out a Formation compass that was different from the one before. The Formation compass hovered in the air as a ring of light appeared above each of the ten groups.
Soon enough, Duan Ling Tian noticed a ring of light appearing above at least a dozen of people’s heads in the group of people under the age of 100. On the other hand, the rest of the groups did not have any abnormalities.
A young man standing near Duan Ling Tian looked at the dozen people with a ring of light above their heads with a sympathetic expression as he said, “Fools! Did they not study the rules of the Heavenly Pool Palace? They’re seeking death!”
As soon as the young man finished speaking, Lei Ying’s gaze fell on the dozen people. She said in a deceptively nonchalant tone, “13 of you have failed…”
The 13 people wore varying expressions of gloominess on their faces as soon as they heard Lei Ying’s words. As they moved to leave, a middle-aged man standing behind Lei Ying suddenly stepped forward in the air.
The middle-aged raised his hand, and in just an instant, thirteen waves of energies swept out toward the 13 people.
The 13 people tried to deflect the attacks with all their might, but they were all killed by the middle-aged man’s attacks in just a blink of an eye.
‘A Celestial Emperor!’ Duan Ling Tian exclaimed inwardly. He could tell the middle-aged man was a Celestial Emperor. On the other hand, the strongest among the 13 participants was only a Two Talents Celestial Lord; how could it be possible for them to withstand the attacks from a Celestial Emperor?
Although the middle-aged man had only attacked casually, there were many people who were shocked and frightened. Those who planned to cheat and moved to the under 100 years old group earlier felt their backs drenched in cold sweat. If they had acted on their thoughts, they would have died.
“Go,” Lei Ying said curtly.
As soon as Lei Ying finished speaking, Duan Ling Tian and the other participants saw ten figures stepping out from behind her. The middle-aged man who had attacked earlier was among these ten people as well. Unlike the others, the middle-aged man made his way to the group of people between the ages of 900 to 1,000.
The expressions of the participants in the 900 to 1,000 age group changed drastically when they saw the middle-aged man approaching them with a fierce expression on his face.
Each of the ten people had made their way to a group.
Boom! Boom! Boom!
A series of earth-shattering explosions rang in the air as the ten people attacked the respective age groups.
Colorful energies sailed in the air as these ten people attacked the participants.
‘Seven Celestial Lords and three Celestial Emperors…” Duan Ling Tian sensed the ten people’s cultivation bases.
The three Celestial Emperors were attacking the three groups of people above the age of 700 while the seven Celestial Lords were attacking the seven groups of people under the age of 700. The higher the age group, the stronger the Celestial Emperors or the Celestial Lords. For example, the group Duan Ling Tian and Huan’er belonged to was being attacked by a Six Combos Celestial Lord. Although the Six Combos Celestial Lord was rather strong and his comprehension of the law was good, he was no match for Huan’er, let alone Duan Ling Tian.
At this moment, Duan Ling Tian said to Huan’er through Voice Transmission, “Huan’er, destroy his attacks.”
A Six Combos Celestial Lord was nothing to the duo.
“Yes, Brother Ling Tian.” Huan’er quickly attacked as instructed by Duan Ling Tian. The power from the law of space surged in the air in just an instant.
Boom! Boom! Boom! Boom! Boom!
A series of thunderous explosions rang in the air as Huan’er easily destroyed the Celestial Lords’ attacks.
The Six Combos Celestial Lord was a young man. When his attacks were destroyed by Huan’er, his expression changed drastically. After all, a person who was not even 300 years old managed to destroy his attacks. Although he did not attack with all his might, he had used about 80% of his strength, after all. Since there were quite a lot of people in the group, the test would be too easy if he held back too much of his strength.
‘Again!’ The young man narrowed his eyes as he attacked again. This time, he did not hold back his strength at all and specifically directed some of his attacks toward Huan’er.
Naturally, Huan’er’s performance did not escape Lei Ying’s eyes. A surprised expression could be seen on her face as she looked at Huan’er.
Lei Ying continued to watch as Huan’er attacked again. The powers from the law of space surged again and destroyed the young man’s attacks like a bolt of lightning.
The young man grunted from the impact of Huan’er’s attack and spat out a mouthful of blood.
Unlike the other groups of people who were busy dealing with the attacks from the Heavenly Palace Pool powerhouses, the people from Duan Ling Tian and Huan’er’s group looked at Huan’er in a daze. How was this white-clad lady wearing a veil so powerful when she was not even 300 years old? Even the prodigies under 300 years old in the Heavenly Pool Palace were not as powerful as her, right?
“Excellent!” Lei Ying was not angered at all that Huan’er injured the young man. Instead, she seemed to be subconsciously cheering for Huan’er as she looked at Huan’er with bright eyes. She did not waste time and immediately said as she looked at Huan’er, “You pass.”
Following that, Lei Ying directed Huan’er to stand at the side, away from the people in her group. After all, with Huan’er in the group, it would only hinder the Celestial Lord from testing the others since she could easily destroy his attacks.
After the young man consumed a Celestial Pill to mend his injuries, he looked at Huan’er with a slight hint of fear. Then, as he shifted his gaze back to Duan Ling Tian and the others, his eyes glinted coldly. His anger, at this moment, was palpable. It was obvious he was going to vent his anger on the remaining people in the group.
The young man attacked again. He released his Six Combos Celestial Lord’s energy that was boosted with the law he comprehended.
“He’s venting his anger on us because he was injured by that white-clad woman!”
“Why is he taking his anger out on us when it wasn’t us who injured him?”
“Then, do you think he’s capable of seeking revenge from that white-clad woman to assuage his anger? He can only vent his anger on those weaker than him!”
“Who’s that woman? She’s not even 300 years old, but she’s clearly stronger than him. Not even the prodigies in the Heavenly Pool Palace were as capable as her at her age, right?”
The people in Duan Ling Tian’s group were under immense pressure as they tried to deflect and avoid the young man’s attacks. Alas, they could only grit their teeth and continue to defend themselves.
At this moment, Duan Ling Tian finally raised his hand nonchalantly.
Boom! Boom! Boom!
Once again, the powers from the law of space surged in the air again. Soon after, a grey energy could be seen shooting toward the young man, destroying his attacks again.
The young man who was injured once again cried out in pain before spitting out a mouthful of blood.
At this moment, compared to earlier, Lei Ying was even more shocked. Another talented monster appeared after one had just appeared not too long ago?
Similar to before, the people in Duan Ling Tian’s group were dumbfounded. Was the duo really not even 300 years old?
Duan Ling Tian pointed at the place where Huan’er was standing and took the initiative to ask Lei Ying who was still in shock, “Senior, can I move to the side?”
Upon hearing Duan Ling Tian’s words, Lei Ying nodded blankly. She could easily tell the purple-clad young man was even stronger than the white-clad woman. When she saw Huan’er holding onto Duan Ling Tian’s arm, she realized the duo was acquainted.
‘Who are they?’ Two monstrous talents who were no weaker than the Heavenly Pool Palace’s prodigies appeared together, how could Lei Ying not feel suspicious and wary?
Meanwhile, a group of Heavenly Pool Palace disciples who were standing behind Lei Ying was also shocked by Duan Ling Tian’s display of strength.
“Are they really under the age of 300?”
Meanwhile, the poor young man, the Six Combos Celestial Lord, had taken another Celestial Pill to mend his injuries. Unfortunately, the recovery rate of the pill could not keep up with the injuries he had sustained.
Lei Ying looked at the young man and said lightly, “Return and rest.”
“Yes, Pavilion Master.”
With this, a disciple stepped forward and substituted the young man. The disciple’s expression was grim as he looked at the remaining participants warily. He was worried there would be another talented monster among this group of people. However, once he began to attack, he realized he had been worried for nothing.
At this moment, Lei Ying looked at Duan Ling Tian and Huan’er and asked in a lowered voice, “Who are both of you?”
Duan Ling Tian feigned an expression of confusion on his face as though he did not understand Lei Ying’s words and said, “Senior, what do you mean? We’re sectless cultivators so we came here today in hopes of joining the Heavenly Pool Palace.”
“What are your names?” Lei Ying asked.
“Duan Ling Tian,” Duan Ling Tian replied before he replied on Huan’er’s behalf as well. Then, he asked, “Senior, is there a problem? Is the Heavenly Pool Palace rejecting us? In that case, we’ll have to try our luck at another heaven-grade force…” Then, he did not wait for Lei Ying’s reply before he pulled Huan’er with him and flew away.
Duan Ling Tian and Huan’er had only flown a couple of miles out when a voice rang in the air.
Upon seeing Duan Ling Tian and Huan’er did not even look back when they left, clearly showing no signs of hesitance, the frown on Lei Ying’s face eased. Then, she asked rhetorically, “Who said the Heavenly Pool Palace is rejecting you?”
