Chapter 1007: Returning to the Darkhan Dynasty
Translator: EndlessFantasy Translation Editor: EndlessFantasy Translation
He could not stay in the Five Element Sect forever after all.
When he joined Five Element Sect in the past, his objective was the Martial Emperor’s secret treasure. Meanwhile, it was for other reason he gathered Feng Tian Wu, Su Li, and Zhang Shou Yong together.
Now that he had achieved his goal, there was no reason for him to stay in the Five Element Sect any longer.
What happened this time presented him with the best opportunity to leave.
Qi Yu’s eyes flashed when he heard what Duan Ling Tian said and saw the determination in his eyes. He nodded and said in response to Duan Ling Tian words, “Everybody has their own ambitions.”
“Since you insist on leaving, it’s pointless for us to ask you to stay. But remember this… You, Duan Ling Tian, will forever be our Five Element Sect’s disciple! The Five Element Sect’s door will forever be open to you!” Guo Chong solemnly said to Duan Ling Tian. His words were sincere and came from his heart.
“Thank you, Sect Leader.” Duan Ling Tian immediately showed his gratitude after he heard what Guo Chong said.
At the same time, he looked at Qi Yu and said through Voice Transmission, “Peak Master, I won’t be returning to Five Element Sect with all of you… Please take care of Ye Xuan.”
“If you can, Peak Master, please take Ye Xuan as your direct disciple! Of course, don’t do it for my sake but for Ye Xuan’s talent and intellect… I believe Peak Master definitely won’t allow a talent to go to waste.” Since he was ready to leave Five Element Sect, it was only natural for Duan Ling Tian to make the necessary arrangement.
Previously, Ye Xuan had followed him to Wood Peak in Five Element Sect.
Now that he was going to leave without bidding her goodbye, he was reluctant to leave without giving her an explanation. The least he could do was give her somebody to depend on in the Five Element Sect so that she would not be bullied.
Naturally, he believed that, given time, Ye Xuan would definitely be a rising star in the Five Element Sect and stand out among all the young disciples in the sect.
“I’ll take that into consideration… if she’s really as outstanding as you said.” Qi Yu’s reply was simple and direct.
“Thank you, Peak Master.” Duan Ling Tian was relieved to hear Qi Yu’s promise.
He was confident in Ye Xuan’s talent and intellect.
After that, Duan Ling Tian looked at Huang Daniu. His expression did not look too good, and it was obvious he did not want to see him leave. Duan Ling Tian smiled faintly at him and said, “Daniu, we’ll definitely meet again one day. You don’t have to behave like this… When you return this time, please say goodbye to Xiao Xuan on my behalf. Tell her I’ll visit her when I have the time.”
Huang Daniu nodded. “I’ll take good care of Xiao Xuan, and I won’t let anyone bully her.”
Duan Ling Tian did not take what Huang Daniu said to heart because he knew with Ye Xuan’s talent and intellect, Qi Yu, the Peak Master of Wood Peak, would definitely take her as his direct disciple.
Once Ye Xuan was inducted into Qi Yu’s Peak and become his direct disciple, who would dare bully her?
Qi Yu’s current position was different from before.
Ever since he displayed his Peak Void ability, his position in the Five Element Sect was destined to rise and catch up to Sect Leader Guo Chong.
After that, Duan Ling Tian bade goodbye to the Peak Master of Water Peak, Yu Fang, and the Peak Master of Earth Peak, Tian Gu, before leaving.
He completely ignored the Peak Master of Fire Peak, Cha Bai.
“Duan Ling Tian!” After holding back for so long, Cha Bai finally said, “You’re the Five Element Sect’s great hero. I, Cha Bai, acknowledge that… But why do you have to kill my direct disciple, Hu Fei?”
“I don’t think Hu Fei has provoked you ever since the both of you left Five Element Sect?”
It was obvious Cha Bai had already learned about Duan Ling Tian killing his direct disciple, Hu Fei, from a few Five Element Sect disciples, and he wanted to find out what had happened.
However, Duan Ling Tian ignored Cha Bai as though he did not hear Cha Bai’s words to him.
He was too lazy to explain.
‘Hu Fei didn’t provoke me?’
That thought itself was funny to Duan Ling Tian.
Before entering the Martial Emperor’s secret treasure, Hu Fei even used Voice Transmission to tell the Sun Moon Sect Master Cheng Feng that his ability was far above the Sun Moon Sect’s disciple, Lu Kai, and advised Cheng Feng to reject the bet with Duan Ling Tian.
It was fortunate Chen Feng did not believe what he said.
Otherwise, Duan Ling Tian definitely would not be able to obtain the two Ninth Level Concept Fragments.
Due to that reason, he killed Hu Fei shortly after they had entered the Martial Emperor’s secret treasure.
In his opinion, it was just a matter of time before Hu Fei turned into a threat if he did not die!
Zi Shang was a fine example. He did not want to see another Zi Shang in this world.
Naturally, it was not that he was afraid, but he did not want to waste time and effort dealing with all the hidden schemes.
Cha Bai’s face turned grim when he saw Duan Ling Tian had completely ignored him.
Although he did not treat Duan Ling Tian as an enemy previously, that was before he killed his direct disciple, Hu Fei.
After he found out Duan Ling Tian had killed Hu Fei, there was no doubt he wanted to kill Duan Ling Tian to avenge Hu Fei!
He only had a direct disciple all his life and had treated him like family.
In the end, his direct disciple and heir were killed by Duan Ling Tian!
“Sect Leader…” Cha Bai took a deep breath and looked at Guo Chong with his blood-shot eyes. He wanted justice for his direct disciple from the Sect Leader of Five Element Sect.
However, when he noticed Guo Chong had also pretty much ignored him, he knew Guo Chong did not intend to take charge of the matter.
It made sense when one thought about it.
No matter what, Duan Ling Tian was the Five Element Sect’s hero after he obtained the Profundity Fragment for the sect.
His direct disciple, Hu Fei’s life was not worth mentioning when compared to the Profundity Fragment!
Cha Bai immediately swallowed what he was going to say.
He shifted his focus to Duan Ling Tian once again, his gaze was cruel and cold.
Duan Ling Tian noticed the cruelty in Cha Bai’s eyes and could not help but frown as he thought to himself, ‘This Cha Bai’s just like his direct disciple, Hu Fei… It’s just a matter of time before he brings disasters to me if he’s alive…’
‘Unfortunately, there’s no way for me to kill him now!’
Cha Bai was the Peak Master of Fire Peak in Five Element Sect. He possessed a strength that Duan Ling Tian could not fight against. Even if Duan Ling Tian was stronger than Cha Bai, Guo Chong would not let it go if Duan Ling Tian killed Cha Bai.
There was no valid reason for him to kill Cha Bai unless he did something to endanger Duan Ling Tian’s life.
No matter what, Cha Bai was still the Peak Master of Fire Peak!
His identity, position, and influence were nothing his direct disciple Hu Fei could compare to.
In the meantime, Feng Tian Wu, Su Li, and Zhang Shou Yong from Blade Sect returned their Spatial Rings to the senior officials for inspection.
Although Feng Tian Wu obtained a Ninth Level Monarch Stage Fire Profundity Fragment in the Martial Emperor’s secret treasure, the Profundity Fragment had merged with her body.
The Blade Sect’s senior officials remained oblivious to that matter. Even if they found out, there was nothing they could do to recover the Ninth Level Monarch Stage Profundity Fragment for their own usage.
Su Li and Zhang Shou Yong did not obtain any Profundity Fragments.
The Blade Sect’s senior officials were a little disappointed after their inspection. Especially the Sect Master of Sword Sect, there was a hint of bitterness in his eyes when he looked at Duan Ling Tian.
“Duan Ling Tian.”
The Vice Sect Master of Blade Sect’s House of Saber, Saber 5 stared fixedly at the five Skywolf Fort’s Vice Fort Masters and said through gritted teeth, “It’s the Skywolf Fort’s fault! If not for them, Duan Ling Tian would be a Blade Sect’s disciple, and the Profundity Fragment he obtained would belong to Blade Sect instead of Five Element Sect.”
“I curse the twenty disciples in Skywolf Fort to die!” Saber 5 added.
When they heard what Saber 5 said, the group of Blade Sect’s disciples, including Feng Tian Wu, Su Li, and Zhang Shou Yong, who survived had an odd expression on their faces.
Among the twenty Skywolf Fort’s disciples, one of them who had attempted to kill Duan Ling Tian fell into a bottomless abyss.
The remaining 19 were all killed by Duan Ling Tian because they attacked him when they entered the Martial Emperor’s secret treasure for the four Ninth Level Concept Fragments in Duan Ling Tian’s hands.
“Sect Masters, I’m planning to leave with Brother Ling Tian to return to our hometown, the Darkhan Dynasty,” Zhang Shou Yong took the lead to say to the Sect Masters of Blade Sect.
Duan Ling Tian had told him about returning to their hometown before they came out of the Martial Emperor’s secret treasure.
“Alright.” Both of the Sect Masters of Blade Sect nodded in assent.
Initially, Zhang Shou Yong with his mediocre talent and intellect was insignificant in their eyes.
However, Zhang Shou Yong had entered Blade Sect together with Feng Tian Wu, that was how they found out Zhang Shou Yong came from Darkhan Dynasty and had a family there.
“Sect Master, I’ll leave with Big Brother Duan as well,” Feng Tian Wu said.
She then looked at the Sword Sect’s Vice Sect Master, Sword 13, and said, “Vice Sect Master, please inform my father on my behalf that I’m leaving with Big Brother Duan to Darkhan Dynasty.”
Sword 13 nodded.
“Both of us old fellows don’t have any opinions on you returning to your hometown… It’s just that we’re worried about the three of you for having to travel so far.” The Sect Master of Sword Sect frowned. “Why don’t I let 13 go with all of you?”
The ’13’ the Sect Master of Sword Sect mentioned was naturally Sword 13, the Sword Sect’s Vice Sect Master, who was also Su Li’s master.
It was clear Feng Tian Wu had an important place in the Sect Master of Sword Sect’s heart since he was willing to let Sword 13, the Sword Sect’s Vice Sect Master, personally escort them.
“Thank you so much for your kindness, Sect Master… But I don’t want to trouble Vice Sect Master.” Feng Tian Wu politely rejected the Sect Master of Sword Sect’s kindness.
Before she left the Martial Emperor’s secret treasure, she worried about this as well when she decided to return to Darkhan Dynasty with Duan Ling Tian.
“With my current ability… It’s enough to protect all of you on our journey back to Darkhan Dynasty!” That was what Duan Ling Tian said to her and Zhang Shou Yong at that time.
She could hear the confidence that came from his bones in Duan Ling Tian’s voice.
