Chapter 350 The Meaning of Arrogance

“Get down here!”

A calm voice exited Lin Dong’s mouth; yet it reverberated throughout the duel arena like peals of thunder.

Silence descended upon the entire arena. Even some elders within the clan stared in shock, their jaws gaping. This was the first time they witnessed someone from Lin Langtian’s generation speak to him in such a manner!

Given Lin Langtian’s position in the Lin Clan today, even some elders have to use an amicable tone when speaking to him. Who would dare to shout and yell at him, not to mention doing that before such a crowd!

“Who on earth is this Lin Dong? How dare he challenge Lin Langtian’s dignity in the clan gathering? I mean he’s the favoured son of heaven! Let’s not talk about his peers – even some elders aren’t a match for him!”

“Yeah… Lin Dong is way too arrogant. Although from the previous match he seems to have some capabilities, but how can he compare himself with Lin Langtian – the favoured son of heaven?

“Heh, I don’t think this person is a reckless idiot. If he dares to talk like this, he must have some cards up his sleeve. To think that the clan gathering this time is gonna be so exciting! Someone finally had enough and is gonna challenge Lin Langtian’s number one position in the Lin Clan!”

“……”

After the momentary death-like silence in the grand arena, countless exclamations and chatter broke forth in the crowd, merging into a terrifying wave of noise and spreading all over Lin City.

The commotion caused by Lin Dong’s words was simply too terrifying!

Who was Lin Langtian?

He was the number one genius of the Lin Clan, who stood in the spotlight in the Great Yan Empire, in a league of his own. Few dared to compare themselves with him in the entire empire. Yet on this day, on the Lin Clan Gathering, he was challenged by a man from a branch family with such an overbearing tone.

It had been many years since anyone had witnessed such a scene. No wonder tension erupted like a volcano in that arena. Everyone’s eyes were filled with excitement and anticipation.

“What? Dong-er actually challenged Lin Langtian?”

In that remote corner, Lin Zhentian, Lin Xiao and the rest were similarly stunned by Lin Dong’s words. Although they were clear that Lin Dong seemed to possess great strength presently, the pressure that exuded from Lin Langtian was simply too overpowering. Therefore, Even they were skeptical that there was anyone who could be a match for this favoured son of heaven.

“Lin Dong is trying to avenge your past humiliation!” Lin Mang glanced at Lin Xiao before suddenly slapping his shoulder, laughing, “You’ve got quite a son there! Haha… That chap’s got charisma!”

Standing aside, Lin Hong and Lin Xia’s hearts beat with shock and excitement at such unparalleled gutsiness. It had been merely two years and yet they could sense Lin Dong’s unmistakable and total transformation!

A trifle dry in his mouth, Lin Xiao stared at the youthful figure hovering in the air above. Hie eyes turned red all of a sudden and both his fists clenched tight. The words of that youth, spoken as he left home that year, still rang in his ears.

The humiliation that his dad suffered shall be avenged by his son…

He could only guess at the kind of training that the youth away from home, must have had suffered for the sake of those words. Perhaps he had had to hover many times on the edge between life and death.

“Dong-er…,” Lin Xiao raised his head and sucked in a deep breath, his eyes turning sour. At the same time, however, a look of gratification appeared on his face. Heaven was kind to him afterall…

With a son like that, everything had been worth it.

Under countless gazes, Lin Dong, hovering on thin air, stared coldly at the figure seated on the golden seating booth. Lin Langtian remained expressionless, his palm moving casually across the surface of the table, as if he had not heard Lin Dong’s words.

“Lin Dong, watch your behavior! This is the Lin Clan Gathering, how dare you make a ruckus here. Get lost!” A grey-haired elder seated next to Lin Langtian upon one of the golden seats shouted with a stern face.

Lin Langtian enjoyed an extremely high position in the Lin Clan. With his capabilities and popularity, he could very well become the next head of the Lin Clan. Naturally, this fact enabled him to win supporters, among them including even some elders. Plainly, the one who had shouted was one such elder who possessed rather high authority and speaking rights in the Lin Clan. Since he leaned towards Lin Langtian, he naturally attempted to prevent Lin Dong from affronting Lin Langtian’s reputation.

“Lin Langtian, spineless scoundrel!” Lin Dong exclaimed in a slow manner, ignoring the grey-haired elder and glaring at Lin Langtian.

“How dare you!”

The grey-haired elder slammed the table in anger and rose, about to attack – but was stopped by the purple-robed elder in the middle, with his hand.

“Grand elder, this fellow is too arrogant. Many of our Lin Clan guests are here today, how can we allow him to make a scene?” the grey-haired elder grumbled, clearly disgruntled by the purple-robed elder’s intervention.

“Haha, Lin Zheng, this Lin Dong counts as one of our clansmen too. Furthermore, looking at his strength, he obviously is extremely talented as well. If we suppress him callously, won’t we lose the hearts of the branch families?” the purple-robed elder replied jovially.

When he heard the words of that purple-robed elder, that grey-haired elder involuntarily furrowed his brows, before he turned to look at a black-clothed elder seated beside him. Based on their actions, it seems like there was quite a bit of politics between the various Lin Clan factions.

“No matter how talented he is, he is nothing compared to Lin Langtian.” That black-clothed elder’s eyes casually scanned across Lin Dong as he spoke.

“However, if he wants to challenge him, no one would object to that. Nonetheless, if Lin Langtian has to step in anytime a random three-legged cat comes along and holler at him, wouldn’t he be extremely busy? If he wants to challenge him, he must show that he possess the necessary qualifications.”

That black-clothed elder’s words were not hidden. Hence, they calmly entered into Lin Dong’s ears. “What qualifications do I need?” Lin Dong twinkly eyes stared at that black-clothed elder as he chuckled. He could see that old fart was clearly siding with Lin Langtian as well. It seems like he had a pretty strong network within the clan.

“Prove yourself worthy by reaching the final arena.”

This time, the one who spoke was the purple-robed elder, that even Lin Dong was slightly wary of. He was gently smiling as he pointed at the highest platform of that gigantic conical arena.

“LIn Langtian was the previous clan gathering champion. If you want to challenge him, he must first defeat the other clan members, before you can reach that stage.”

“Besides, let me warn you first. This time around, there are three exceptional candidates. The first one is Lin Langtian, while for the rest of them, even though they are slightly weaker than Lin Langtian, they are considered geniuses as well.”

“As for you, if you want to reach the final platform, you must go through the two of them.”

“Lin Qing, Lin Mu!”

As that purple-robed elder softly shouted out, two extremely formidable aura instantly erupted violently in the middle of the arena. Promptly, two figure flashed, before two bodies appeared on two different platforms respectively.

Lin Dong’s eyes stared at the two of them, while his expression turned somewhat solemn. Both of them seemed slightly older than Lin Langtian. Even though their aura was weaker than his, they were both actually at half-step-to Manifestation. Furthermore, it seems like both of them were at the pinnacle of half-step-to Manifestation. In fact, with a little luck, both of them could easily bridge the final gap and advance to initial Manifestation stage. It’s no wonder the elder claimed that they were only slightly behind Lin Langtian.

Besides, what stunned Lin Dong the most was that the two of them looked exactly the same. Obviously, they were twin brothers and they were connected by blood. In fact, even their aura faintly showed signs of fusion. If they joined forces, even a initial Manifestation practitioner would have a slim chance of victory. This goes to show just how powerful they are!

“It is indeed the Lin Qing brothers. Pfft, that Lin Dong is simply too arrogant. Does he really believe that it will be so easy to challenge big brother Lin Langtian? The Lin Qing brothers are about to advance to initial Manifestation stage and their strength is nowhere compared to garbage like Lin Feng!”

“Wait till Lin Dong is defeated by Lin Qing brothers, then we will see if he still dares to challenge big brother Lin Langtian!”

“Disgraceful. A branch family member dares to challenge the main clan!”

“……”

When the Lin Clan’s disciples saw the two of them, joy instantly surged into their eyes. Based on their expressions, it seems like they had already decided that Lin Dong would lose.

Of course, it must be said that among younger generation members, the Lin Qing brothers only lost out to Lin Langtian. However…

Lin Dong lifted his head, as he stared at the elders seated on the golden seating booth. Then, his figure flashed before he directly landed on the highest platform on the arena. Finally, he calmly said: “There is no need to split it into two rounds, come at me together.”

Arrogant, Ignorant!

When Lin Dong’s words landed, rage instantly swarmed into the main clan member’s eyes, before they continuously chuckled.

However, just as they chuckled, standing at the highest platform, Lin Dong gently waved his sleeves, before his calm words once again sounded out.

“Within ten rounds, if the two of them still remain on the platform, it is my loss!”

After his words landed, even the expression of the elders, seated in the golden seating area, violently changed. Right now, the word arrogant could not even begin to describe him.

Since you guys ask for my qualifications, let me show it to you!

  1. Thank you. This is my first time in the top 5, laugh if you want at my happiness, but it is something I wanted since coming to WW, This lowly one is joining F5 sect.

  2. Lol 2 half a step manifestation stage, Lin Dong beat Teng Sha who was an advance manifestation stage wherein even 2 initial manifestation stage couldn’t beat, of course Lin Dong will be arrogant on fighting 2 scrubs.

  3. I fought multiple manifestation level beasts and humans some of which were advanced stage too. Two half-step brats want to pick a fight? they are asking to die.

    1. u call this dragged out?! He basically skip the entire tournament format, like fighting 4-6 useless rounds going through trash. Instead he’ll have this one establish dominance/shut everyone up fight and head for the main event.

  4. Thanks for the chapter.

    I thought everyone had heard of Lin Dong hunting down manifestation stage beasts, even if they didn’t hear about him beating down Teng Sha.
    I mean, I’m sure some branch families passed through those areas and the Lin Clan can’t have no people responsible for intelligence gathering.

    And if nothing else, they should have noticed he’s half step manifestation stage and they should know he has an extremely high level manifestation martial art, so it’s doubtful anyone of the same stage could beat him 1v1…

    Ah well, let’s just hope those 10 moves don’t take more than one chapter…

    (P.S.: I have no problem with the novel, it’s just that the Lin Clan seems to be a gathering of idiots…)

    1. Nah, Lin Langtian definitely suppressed the news so people don’t know anything about Lin Dong. Also, most of the people there don’t know that Lin Dong trained so quickly, maybe they just assumed that he caught up with the others at around the same point in time. And there’s a point to be made that it’s quite an arrogant thing to do to challenge the champion of a tournament when you, yourself, are an unknown heading into it. I mean, he had good reason to be arrogant, but the reactions of the unknowing elders seem mostly justified.

      Also, they don’t know much about him because he won in one move, lol. I’m guessing that all of the news about that he was doing in the other province hadn’t reached the Lin clan because they had been preparing for the gathering and didn’t waste time looking for news about branch family members.

    2. Thanks for the chapter!

      No they aren’t a gathering of idiots… It’s just a Idiot clan!!!

      For sure, you got yourself a youngster who isn’t 20 yet at Half step manifestation stage and no one are please with that. Compare to Lin Langtian who’s around 30, that’s an exploit if you take in consideration that Lin Dong isn’t part of the main family and doesn’t have any helper. Instead of welcoming this new genius, they try to kill him & have grudge with him… Very clever… They have eyes but can’t see the Mt Tai!!!

  5. Half step is consider a little behind Langtian?
    Langtian suppose to be advance manifestation to give us, readers, a little tense battle.
    How could this twin idiots count as a little behind him?

  6. I would like to point out that your usage of duo, trio & brothers is inaccurate. For example, in this chapter there are twin brothers named Lin Qing & Lin Mu. Why are they collectively referred to as the Lin Qing brothers? Isn’t the Lin Brothers what it should be? This is also the case in your usage of duo & trio.

    1. Actually you are wrong. The “Lin Brothers” could be any number of brothers from the Lin Clan. The fact they are called the Lin Qing brother’s is due to being referenced to the older brother (in some cases the strongest of siblings). Duo and trio are used in correct form as well when you go back and read them in the context they are written. Oh and it should be about 10 chapters from now that the 10 rounds and the fight with Langtian concludes.

      1. I suggest you go back & read once. Remember the chapter in which Lin Dong obtains 200,000 Pure Yuan Pills & the Lightning Beasts core from two families? In that they used the name of one of the guy to describe the duo. It’s like one of the guy’s called XY & the other YZ but duo is called the XY Duo & they’re from different families as well. Another is I understand that Lin Brothers could mean any group of brothers from the Lin Clan but I couldn’t come up with something better. Let’s say you have a brother named X. They don’t call you both together as the X Brothers now, right? They either use your family name or some nickname or the like, right? As for trio, in the last family they’ve been using Qingtan trio to describe the three from Yan City. Calling them that isn’t apt as well I believe.

    2. sounds interesting, any solution you can recommend for the duo and trio part?

      I’ve encountered this problem a few hundred chapters back where the author would introduce only one out of two or three characters and then use the only character introduced to reference to the group, hence resulting in our usage of terms like ‘the Lin Dong duo’ etc.

      1. Sorry if I offended you. Thanks for listening to my suggestions. I can understand what you mean here. I feel it’s better to go by the family name to introduce the group or use the City name or the Sect name & all depending upon the situation i.e. if there’s more than one group with the same family name & such. This is all I can say. I suggest you ask RWX or Deathblade regarding this. They might give you some good advice. Thanks again for listening to my rants & considering my opinion.

  7. A trifle dry in his mouth, Lin Dong stared at the youthful figure hovering in the air above. Hie eyes turned red all of a sudden and both his fists clenched tight. The words of that youth, spoken as he left home that year, still rang in his ears.

    I believe that it’s Lin Xiao not Lin Dong.

  8. “Heh, I don’t think this person is a reckless idiot. If he dares to talk like this, he must have some cards up his sleeve. To think that the clan gathering this time is gonna be so exciting! Someone finally had enough and is gonna challenge Lin Langtian’s number one position in the Lin Clan!”

    Finally, finally!! Someone had the eyes to see Mt. TAI!! i red until the very end just to see this reaction!! Can’t you see that!? The author just really made someone recognize our MC with just a glance!! Oh my god! This shall be celebrated!! We must toast until our guts couldn’t take it anymore! Can’t you see that!? Can’t you!?

    Oh my god! Thanks for the God- no, the chapter!!

    Ohw, owh… *groans with pleasure*

  9. Thanks for the chapter! Lin Dong is making me very happy right now. 😀 He’s not just winning, he’s being a d*** about it as well. That’s my boy! Wreck ’em. Lol, I love his arrogance right now.

  10. Therefore, Eeen they were skeptical that there was anyone who could be a match for this favoured son of heaven.
    Eeen –> even (I think it’s ‘even’, btw it’s not ‘Even’)

  11. Since you guys ask for my qualifications, let me show it to you!
    “Since you guys ask for my qualifications, let me show it to you!”

    I believe it’s supposed to be in quote to show that Lin Dong is speaking, ie it’s not silence.

  12. How is Lin Langtain from the same generation as Lin Dong? author is forgetting his shit.
    CH 1 :
    As for the man in question, later on, Lin Dong by chance heard his uncle and the others mention him with loathing and powerless tones.

    At 10, he started training.

    At 12 he broke through the 9th Layer of Tempered Body to enter into Yuan territory.

    At 14, he advanced to the Earthly Yuan level.

    At 17 he advanced to the Heavenly Yuan level.

    At 25, the Yuan Qi in his body exchanged Yin and Yang, finally succeeding in forming a Dan. Like a carp that became a dragon, in one fell swoop, he joined the ranks of the rarified few in the Great Yan Dynasty to ever form a Yuan Dan before the age of 30.”

    Lin Langtian should be around 35 to 38 while Lin Dong around 20s.

    1. Yeah i know, this is bothring me a lot, its a huge mistake from the author, i know he wants to make langtian the first main protaganist, but this is getting redecules, at least make so that makes a little bit sense.

  13. TYVM for the chapter!

    “pinnacle of half-step-to Manifestation”

    …I mean, half step to manifestation is already pinnacle of Qi though. I don’t like things like pinnacle of (pinnacle of (pinnacle of…)…)
