When Duan Ling Tian's 10,000 Swords Territory appeared, Gu Long discovered something. Although Duan Ling Tian's Territory was more powerful than his, due to his strength that was only at the Mastery Exemplary Saint Stage, it was evenly matched with his Thousand Sabers Territory.
“Do you think that you can breach my defense by consolidating your Territory! How naive!” Gu Long looked at Duan Ling Tian disdainfully.
Gu Long was confident Duan Ling Tian would not be able to breach his defense even though he had consolidated his Territory.
“I don't plan on using my Territory against you,” Duan Ling Tian said indifferently to Gu Long. He relaxed once he saw the 10,000 Swords Territory had blocked everyone's sights.
When Gu Long heard his words, he felt as though he had been struck by lightning. A hint of fear appeared in his eyes.
“Stop trying to act strong!” Gu Long shouted as he suppressed the fear that had suddenly appeared in his heart.
“Acting strong?” When Duan Ling Tian heard his words, he merely shook his head and smiled. This caused the fear in Gu Long's heart to intensify.
Out of humiliation, he flew into a rage and attacked Duan Ling Tian again.
“Otherworldly Celestial!” Duan Ling Tian muttered under his breath as he soared up into the sky. With his speed, he soon disappeared from Gu Long's sight. It seemed as though he had vanished into thin air.
“Huh?” Gu Long was baffled when he saw this. He did not know what Duan Ling Tian was trying to do.
As Duan Ling Tian soared up into the sky, the 10,000 Swords Territory followed in his wake. When he disappeared into the horizon, the 10,000 Swords Territory vanished as well.
Gu Long's figure instantly appeared before everyone's eyes again.
“Duan Ling Tian seems to have flown up into the sky?”
“Don't tell me the effect of the a.s.sist-type Divine Ability he had cast is going to disappear soon?”
The Black Turtle Sanctum's disciples present on the scene fell silent for a moment before they began to discuss among themselves again.
“The effect of the a.s.sist-type Divine Ability is going to vanish soon?” Gu Long who was originally on tenterhooks was. .h.i.t with a pang of realization when he heard the Black Turtle Sanctum's disciples words. “It seems like he really was just acting strong earlier. d.a.m.n it! To think I was momentarily frightened by him!”
When Gu Long recalled how he was momentarily frightened, he flew into a rage again out of humiliation. In the next moment, he stomped both his feet and soared up into the air like an arrow that had been shot.
“Duan Ling Tian, your speed might be faster than mine now. However, once the effect of your a.s.sist-type Divine Ability is gone, what are you going to use to fight me? You're going to die!” Gu Long was delighted as he flew up into the air. If one did not know better, one would think he had already killed Duan Ling Tian.
Swis.h.!.+ Swis.h.!.+ Swis.h.!.+
However, at the instant when Gu Long flew up into the air, a cacophonous sound of swords whistling rang in the air.
At the moment when the Black Turtle Sanctum's disciples heard the noise, an enormous golden light s.h.i.+eld with a hundred-meter radius had enveloped Gu Long.
“Stop!” A loud voice filled with anger reverberated in the air before the Black Turtle Sanctum's disciples could even figure out what was going on.
It seemed like the owner of the voice was still a distance away.
'A Black Turtle Sanctum's elder?' Duan Ling Tian's expression turned grave as he stood in the 10,000 Swords Territory. He instantly called out to Elder Huo, “Elder Huo, help me devour his Innate Spiritual Root!”
10,000 golden swords had gathered in front of Duan Ling Tian and formed a platform that held Gu Long's body. To be more precise, it was holding Gu Long's corpse.
Gu Long's eyes were wide open as he died with a belly full of regrets. The three vital points on his body were pierced, and blood was flowing out continuously. These were the marks left behind by the high-grade offensive Divine Ability, the Otherworldly Celestial, that Duan Ling Tian had cast.
Currently, Duan Ling Tian could only produce two clones when he cast the Otherworldly Celestial. Even then, with the combination of the Otherworldly Celestial and the profundity of the second stage of the Sovereign Heart Sword, Duan Ling Tian had easily breached Gu Long's defense and killed him before he even realized what was going on. The entire process went smoothly.
Unfortunately, due to the 10,000 Swords Territory, none of the Black Turtle Sanctum's disciples saw the final and critical scene when Gu Long was killed by Duan Ling Tian's three swords in just a blink of an eye.
“He has a blue Innate Spiritual Root!” When Duan Ling Tian called out to Elder Huo, he had already extended his Divine Consciousness and probed Gu Long's soul, trying to locate his Innate Spiritual Root.
Elder Huo rarely paid attention to the situation outside so he had only just found out that Gu Long possessed a blue Innate Spiritual Root.
“Elder Huo, please guide my Divine Consciousness to locate his Innate Spiritual Root. I want to devour it before the Black Turtle Sanctum's elder arrives. He's dead so his soul is going to vanish soon. When that happens, his Innate Spiritual Root is going to disappear as well. This is my last chance to devour his Innate Spiritual Root!” Duan Ling Tian urged Elder Huo as his Divine Consciousness entered Gu Long's soul.
As he was urging Elder Huo, he had already placed his hand on top of Gu Long's head and cast the Elementary Devouring Tactic. He was ready to make his move!
Elder Huo did not dally when he sensed how anxious Duan Ling Tian was. He quickly used his Divine Consciousness to guide Duan Ling Tian's Divine Consciousness to locate Gu Long's Innate Spiritual Root. “His Innate Spiritual Root is a grade higher than the Innate Spiritual Root you devoured previously. The energy is far richer so it should be easier for you to detect its presence.”
“I found it!” As soon as Elder Huo finished speaking, Duan Ling Tian found Gu Long's Innate Spiritual Root.
Just like Elder Huo had said, because Gu Long possessed a blue Innate Spiritual Root, its presence was stronger than Gu Chun's green Innate Spiritual Root that Duan Ling Tian had previously devoured.
After Duan Ling Tian's Divine Consciousness locked onto Gu Long's Innate Spiritual Root, it was easy for him to devour it without any further help from Elder Huo.
As the saying went, 'Unfamiliar at first, skillful later.' This was Duan Ling Tian's second time devouring an Innate Spiritual Root. It was much easier this time around.
He controlled the Devouring Energy and devoured Gu Long's Innate Spiritual Root as he fused it with his own Innate Spiritual Root!
“I can't believe that despite how fast I was, the energy from Gu Long's Innate Spiritual Root still leaked a lot.” Duan Ling Tian sighed.
He could clearly sense the changes in his Innate Spiritual Root. His speed of sensing the Heaven and Earth Spirit Energy was several times faster than before!
“Your Innate Spiritual Root has changed from dark yellow to dark green!” Elder Huo's voice rang in Duan Ling Tian's ears.
“Just as I expected…” Duan Ling Tian was not surprised by this outcome.
No matter what, Gu Long possessed a blue Innate Spiritual Root. Even if Duan Ling Tian could not absorb all the energy, it was still easy for it to turn his yellow Innate Spiritual Root green.
“Stop it!” The loud voice rang in the air again, causing Duan Ling Tian to regain his senses. He instantly withdrew his 10,000 Swords Territory.
As soon as he withdrew his 10,000 Swords Territory, he saw two old figures making their way over to the residence of the Black Turtle Sanctum's disciples. One flew in front, while the other followed from behind.
Based on the robes they wore, it was obvious they were the Black Turtle Sanctum's Silver Flame Elders!
Duan Ling Tian was familiar with one of them.
Under normal circ.u.mstances, the Black Turtle Sanctum's disciples present on the scene would have bowed to pay respect to these two men. However, currently, their eyes were trained on the distant sky.
As the Territory that was like a golden light s.h.i.+eld disappeared, a young man hovered in the air, unharmed.
Not far away, a corpse fell from the sky and crashed heavily on the ground with a loud noise.
This noise shocked the Black Turtle Sanctum's disciples. When they regained their senses, all of them had an expression of disbelief on their faces.
“H-how's this possible?!”
“G-Gu Long is dead? He's a Martial Cultivator at the peak of the Exemplary Saint Stage!”
“A Martial Cultivator at the peak of the Exemplary Saint Stage is killed by an Early Exemplary Saint Stage Martial Cultivator? Can anybody tell me what the h.e.l.l happened?”
“I'm not dreaming, right?”
The Black Turtle Sanctum's disciples present on the scene fell silent before they burst into an uproar.
What did they just witness?
A genius Martial Cultivator at the peak of the Exemplary Saint Stage with a blue Innate Spiritual Root was killed by an Early Exemplary Saint Stage Martial Cultivator who only possessed a yellow Spiritual Root!
If they did not witness this with their own eyes, they would not have believed this even if they were beaten to death.
“Brother!” As a sorrow-filled shout reverberated in the air. Gu Chun's face turned pale as he looked at Gu Long's body.
He did not expect the cousin whom he regarded as his life savior would be killed by the person he hated the most!
“How's this possible? Impossible…” Gu Chun continued shaking his head as he looked at Gu Long's body. He had an expression of disbelief on his face as he muttered, “You're not my brother! You're not my brother! My brother is not this useless! My brother is not this useless!”
“He's your cousin that had a blue Innate Spiritual Root?” An old figure asked in a deep voice as he appeared next to Gu Chun and looked at Gu Long's body as well.
This made Gu Chun regain his senses immediately.
“Master!” Gu Chun instantly kneeled down and lowered his head as he said sadly, “My cousin has no fate with you, Master!”
