“Boss!” Li Xuan’s face twitched when he saw Duan Ling Tian, and he flew out and gave Duan Ling Tian a hug. “I knew you’ll come back to save me.”
“Get off!” Duan Ling Tian felt like he had fallen into a pile of fats, and he was breathless from being squeezed. He hurriedly raised a hand and batted Li Xuan’s fat body away.
“Boss, look at me. I was caught in Aurora City to be imprisoned here… How can you bear to push me away when I’m so pitiful?” Li Xuan said to Duan Ling Tian with a forlorn expression after he used the wall to steady himself from Duan Ling Tian’s push.
However, it was difficult for Duan Ling Tian to pity him after he looked at his face.
In any case, Duan Ling Tian had batted Li Xuan off with a trick move so it did not hurt Li Xuan in any way at all.
Li Xuan was his brother, naturally, he would not really hit Li Xuan.
“Pity you? It doesn’t seem like you’re imprisoned. It seems more like you’re here to enjoy life,” Duan Ling Tian retorted as he glanced at the good wine and exquisite food prepared by the guards for Li Xuan.
“Hehe.” Li Xuan was exposed by Duan Ling Tian, and his fat face twitched as he snickered. “Boss, this is a blessing from His Majesty and Uncle Nie… However, most of the credit goes to you.”
“Me?” Duan Ling Tian was stunned.
“Yes.” Li Xuan nodded like a chick pecking on grains. “Boss, you probably don’t know this but… most of the people guarding us regard you as their idol! After they found out I’m your brother, they would give me whatever I asked for.” Duan Ling Tian sighed involuntarily when he heard his words. He turned to look at guards lying on the ground after they were knocked out by him and Feng Tian Wu.
“Was my attack too harsh?” Duan Ling Tian muttered.
At this moment, Li Xuan had also noticed the group of guards lying outside the cell. His small eyes gleamed as he exclaimed, “Boss, you didn’t kill them, did you? Actually, they didn’t have it easy as well. Moreover, they did not mistreat us at all.”
“We merely knocked them out,” Feng Tian Wu responded before Duan Ling Tian even opened his mouth.
When she followed Duan Ling Tian back to the Crimson Sky Kingdom previously, she also went to Aurora City with Duan Ling Tian and met Li Xuan there. She knew Li Xuan was close to Duan Ling Tian.
“That’s good, that’s good… Sister-in-law, how come you came along with my Boss? My Boss alone is enough to deal with those jokers.”
“I would feel like I’ve sinned if you hurt yourself in an attempt to rescue me,” Li Xuan said as he squinted his small eyes and forced a fawning smile on his face.
When Feng Tian Wu heard Li Xuan call her sister-in-law, a blush instantly rose on her beautiful face. However, she did not have the intention to contradict him.
“Don’t underestimate them, they’re really strong.”
When Feng Tian Wu said this, the blush on her face disappeared and was replaced with seriousness.
People from a second-rate force would not be ordinary, right?
“So what if they’re strong… They’re nothing compared to my Boss!” Li Xuan said nonchalantly.
In his eyes, his Boss was invincible and incomparable!
However, he received a smack on the back of his head as soon as he finished talking.
“Who would even hit their father?” Li Xuan yelled as his face turned cold.
However, he only gulped when he saw the culprit.
“So fatty, are you my father?” Duan Ling Tian looked at Li Xuan with narrowed eyes and a faint smile on his face.
The frost on Li Xuan’s face was long gone when he saw Duan Ling Tian was the one who hit him.
When he heard what Duan Ling Tian said, he shivered involuntarily. At the same time, he said with a fawning expression, “Boss, you misheard… You definitely misheard what I said.”
“Misheard? Are you sure?” The smile at the corner of Duan Ling Tian’s mouth became more sinister.
“Boss, I’m wrong! My mistake!” Li Xuan saw the sinister smile and realized it would not be easy to fool Duan Ling Tian. He immediately pulled a face and said, “You’re my father, you’re my father alright?”
“Hey! Who wants to be your father?” Duan Ling Tian was speechless. He only wanted Li Xuan to concede, he did not expect Li Xuan to say that. “If the 5th Elder catches wind of what you said, he’ll definitely break your leg!”
Who knew Li Xuan did not care even after he heard Duan Ling Tian’s words. “That will only happen if he’s able to win me in a battle.”
Duan Ling Tian was once again rendered speechless.
Currently, Li Xuan’s strength had already surpassed his father, Li Ting the 5th Elder of Li family from Fresh Breeze Town.
“Duan Ling Tian!”
At this moment, a few low voices sounded. Nie Yuan the Divine Might Marquis, the Emperor of Crimson Sky Kingdom, Xiao Yu, and Xiao Xun slowly woke up one by one.
They were all taken aback when they saw Duan Ling Tian.
“Uncle Nie. Your Majesty.”
After Duan Ling Tian greeted Nie Yuan and the Emperor, he smiled and nodded at Xiao Yu and Xiao Xun as a greeting.
He knew Xiao Yu and Xiao Xun since they were children. Just a look and a simple action were sufficient to explain everything. There was no need to complicate things.
“Little Tian, those four seem to be very troublesome… How did you offend them?” Nie Yuan asked. His tone was not accusatory, it was just filled with curiosity.
After Nie Yuan spoke, everyone apart from Feng Tian Wu turned to look at Duan Ling Tian. It was apparent they were also curious.
“I still don’t know which force they’re from so I’m not sure how I offended them,” Duan Ling Tian said honestly.
Presently, none of the martial artists in the top ten dynasties, including the Darkhan Dynasty, could compete with him.
He did offend three of the largest forces in the northern desert, but it was unlikely they would come for him so publicly… unless they wanted to antagonize the Five Element Sect.
The current Five Element Sect was no longer the same as how it used to be. In addition to obtaining the Profundity Fragment, their sect was about to have a Martial Monarch powerhouse. The Peak Master of Wood Peak, Qi Yu, would still become a Martial Monarch powerhouse given enough time even if he did not possess the Profundity Fragment.
In the future, the Five Element Sect would have two Martial Monarch powerhouses.
Due to that, the current Five Element Sect could not be compared to an ordinary third-rate force.
The Five Element Sect could be considered a second-rate force since they were about to get another Martial Monarch powerhouse. That fact alone was sufficient to intimidate a third-rate force.
Therefore, the culprit could only be from one of the three largest second-rate forces in the northern desert.
They were probably here to avenge their disciples if they were from Izumo Sect or North Nether Sect.
If they were from the Anicca Sect, then they were probably here to snatch the treasure away from him and kill him.
Currently, Duan Ling Tian still did not know who it was that came to pick a fight with him so publicly. That was why he did not know how he had offended those people.
“Duan Ling Tian, you mean… You’ve offended more than one force?” The corner of Xiao Xun’s mouth began to twitch.
The others were also silent. They could only smile bitterly after they recovered from their surprise.
Then, they recalled back when Duan Ling Tian was still at the Crimson Sky Kingdom, he had always felt discontented.
Now that he was out exploring the world where the sea was boundless and the sky was vast, it was natural that he did not restrict his nature.
Duan Ling Tian changed the topic and called out to the five of them. Along with Feng Tian Wu, they brought they away from the dungeon. All of them stepped into the air and headed outside of the Imperial Palace.
As Duan Ling Tian waved his hand, a vast and invisible force surged and entwined around Nie Yuan and the others. It pulled them outside of the Imperial Palace with lightning-speed.
None of the guards in the Imperial Palace saw them.
The five people who were flown by Duan Ling Tian were filled with amazement as their eyes widened.
“Haha… Boss, I knew you’re the best!” Li Xuan laughed. His faith in Duan Ling Tian was apparent.
“All these in just a few years? Duan Ling Tian has grown so much.” The Crimson Sky Kingdom’s Emperor’s eyes narrowed. Shock was written on his face.
“Duan Ling Tian…” Xiao Yu and Xiao Xun’s eyes met, and they saw a hint of helplessness in each other’s eyes.
From the beginning, it had already been difficult for them to compete with Duan Ling Tian. However, the strength Duan Ling Tian displayed today made them realize they were destined to look up to Duan Ling Tian in this life.
“Little Tian, good for you.” When Nie Yuan saw Duan Ling Tian’s strength, he was truly happy for him from the bottom of his heart.
A figure similar to a fire elf trailed behind Duan Ling Tian as the five people Duan Ling Tian brought with him flew outside of the palace. Wherever they passed, a burning aura would spread and sweep across the land.
“Duan Ling Tian! You finally appeared!” Almost instantly, a loud voice reverberated seemingly from every direction. Duan Ling Tian and the others heard the voice clearly.
Li Xuan recognized the voice immediately. He gnashed his teeth in anger before he said, “Boss, this is the fellow who caught me in Aurora City.”
However, Duan Ling Tian ignored him and looked at Feng Tian Wu immediately with a grave expression. He said through Voice Transmission, “Tian Wu, bring them away! Their target is me so they won’t go after all of you.”
“Big Brother Duan…” Feng Tian Wu’s pretty face changed at once when she heard Duan Ling Tian’s words.
However, her heart jolted for seemingly no reason when she saw Duan Ling Tian’s swift and piercing gaze.
This was the first time her Big Brother Duan had spoken to her like that.
Feng Tian Wu was afraid of Duan Ling Tian’s anger. That was why she clenched her teeth and did not hesitate as she took Nie Yuan and the others away from Duan Ling Tian’s hand so she could bring them away from the Imperial Palace.
Meanwhile, the sound of wind whistling resounded as two figures simultaneously appeared in Duan Ling Tian’s line of sight.
One of them was leading the other person.
One of them looked at the middle-aged man before him and said with a fawning expression, “Elder Zhong, this Duan Ling Tian would’ve escaped with Nie Yuan and the others if I didn’t tip you off.”
