Chapter 4054: The Weak Are Prey to the Strong
Translator: EndlessFantasy Translation Editor: EndlessFantasy Translation
Luo Yuan was thoroughly defeated. He failed to defend himself from the ambush and was struck twice before falling to the ground, unconscious.
“Han Di wins,” Lin Dong Lai said loudly after stopping Han Di. He frowned slightly at Han Di for going back on his words. However, he also knew that Luo Yuan should not have let his guard down no matter what, especially not before the fight officially ended.
The entire place was silent as Lin Dong Lai sent Luo Yuan back to the people of the Autumn Leaves Sect. None of them expected this sudden twist.
Only the elders from the United Heaven Sect seemed indifferent. Clearly, they had long been aware of Han Di’s plan. Moreover, they clearly agreed to the plan. In fact, they did not think Han Di would succeed. If he did, they thought it would just serve as a lesson to Luo Yuan. Hence, they were also slightly surprised that Han Di succeeded. They could only sigh at Luo Yuan’s carelessness and naivety.
‘How ruthless,’ Duan Ling Tian thought to himself as he glanced at Han Di, who was still on the battlefield. At the same time, he was glad that he remained vigilant during their fight. He also wondered if Han Di did not attempt to deceive him because he was much stronger than Han Di.
Based on the current situation, Duan Ling Tian thought that unlike what everyone believed earlier, Luo Yuan must have been the one who suggested they determined their strength with a strike. It was likely the reason why Luo Yuan was not on high alert as well. If Han Di had been the one to suggest that, Luo Yuan would have definitely been more on guard.
‘I don’t think the Divine Morning Mansion will let things go so easily,’ Duan Ling Tian thought to himself as he looked at the people from the Divine Morning Mansion. Most of them were still on their feet.
After a moment, the three leaders of the entourage from the top three forces in the Divine Morning Mansion suddenly flew out. The three intermediate Emperors of G.o.ds landed in front of Han Di, who was just about to leave the battlefield. Their expressions were extremely unsightly at this time.
The elder from the Autumn Leaves Sect spoke first. “Han Di, why did you ambush Luo Yuan when you clearly agreed to determine your strength with one strike? You’re really despicable!”
The other elder said, “Han Di, you have to give us an explanation.”
“That’s right. You have to be responsible for this despicable act!”
The three intermediate Emperors of G.o.ds glared at Han Di murderously.
Duan Ling Tian thought that the trio looked as though they were about to attack Han Di.
At this time, the leading elder from the United Heavens Sect flew into the battlefield as well. He stood in front of Han Di, s.h.i.+elding Han Di, before he said with a scoff, “You can only blame Luo Yuan for being careless. During Han Di’s fight with Duan Ling Tian, Han Di admitted defeat since Duan Ling Tian kept his guard up and was not tricked. He was also the one who suggested this to Duan Ling Tian. However, Luo Yuan was the one who proposed this before the fight. He was injured due to his own carelessness and complacency. You should be grateful that it wasn’t a life-or-death battle. Otherwise, he would’ve died. You should thank Han Di for teaching him such a valuable life lesson!”
Despite their anger, the powerhouses from the Divine Morning Mansion could not do much. After all, not only was there the elder from the United Heavens Sect, but Lin Dong Lai was present as well. In the end, they could only glare at Han Di before returning to their seats. They could even argue since Han Di had already been declared the winner. Despite his despicable method, his victory was legitimate. They could only return and heal Luo Yuan.
Meanwhile, the crowd returned to their senses and lamented Luo Yuan’s outcome.
“What a pity.”
“I a.s.sumed that Han Di was the one who made the proposal. As it turns out, it was Luo Yuan!”
“If they had fought like normal, he wouldn’t have suffered such severe injuries. I don’t think he’d be able to rank in the top three now…”
“Luo Yuan really shot himself in the foot this time!”
After Tuo Ba Xiu and Yuan Mo Yu’s fight, everyone knew it was understandable that Luo Yuan wanted to conserve his energy and mitigate the risks of getting injured. It was only unfortunate that he let his guard down at the critical moment, giving Han Di an opening. However, they could understand why Han Di would suddenly let his guard down. They only found out about what happened from their elders.
“So Han Di pretended to be weaker to get Luo Yuan to lower his guard?”
“Han Di is really vicious!”
“Well, the winner is the king. I don’t think there’s anything wrong with Han Di’s action. It’s Luo Yuan’s fault for being careless.”
People thought Han Di’s action was vicious, but at the same time, they also thought it was not unreasonable even if it was despicable. Moreover, if they were in his shoes, they might have done the same thing.
Meanwhile, Duan Ling Tian looked at the elders from the Autumn Leaves Sect, who were gathered around Luo Yuan, as he thought to himself, ‘Luo Yuan has no hope of ranking in the top three now… Although his elders are unreconciled, there’s nothing they can do. Even if they give him all their healing divine pills, it’s already considered good if they can heal half of his injuries before his next fight.’
Duan Ling Tian had a clear view of Luo Yuan’s injuries earlier so he was very confident about his judgment.
After a moment, Duan Ling Tian s.h.i.+fted his eyes over to the people of the United Heaven Sect. Coincidentally, he met Han Di’s gaze.
Han Di smiled and asked through Voice Transmission, “Duan Ling Tian, do you think I’m despicable as well?”
Duan Ling Tian looked at Han Di meaningfully and asked in return, “What do you think?”
Han Di sighed. “I’m not surprised that you think of me that way. However, this is a world where only the weak are prey to the strong. Luo Yuan can only blame himself for being careless. He wouldn’t be in this state if he had only remained vigilant like you did. If you weren’t so alert, I would’ve done the same. I have to say cultivators from the Devata Realm like you are quite formidable.”
Duan Ling Tian might not agree with Han Di’s despicable method, but he could not deny that there was some truth in Han Di’s words. This world was indeed one where the weak were prey to the strong. Nonetheless, he did not think he would get along with someone like Han Di. It was against his principles to break promises. Even if the Pure Yang Sect asked him to do something like that, he would never agree to it.
At this time, Lin Dong Lai said, “The fights will end here today. We will continue tomorrow.”
The bout ended early since everyone had fought. A new bout would only continue tomorrow.
At the same time, the atmosphere remained gloomy until everyone dispersed.
