The four Vice Fort Masters of Skywolf Fort, including Feng Wei, lowered their heads immediately. Their lips twitched a little when they heard Qing Lang’s words and saw the eagerness in his eyes.
“Hmm?” Qing Lang’s face turned somber when he saw the bitterness on their faces. “Why? Is there no Profundity Fragment I can use?”
“Fort Master.” Feng Wei mustered his courage to speak up after he was prompted by Ning Can and the others. He looked at Qing Lang with a strained smile on his face and said, “We didn’t obtain anything from the Martial Emperor’s secret treasure at all, let alone Profundity Fragments.”
“Moreover, all twenty young powerhouses from our Skywolf Fort who entered the Martial Emperor’s secret treasure died inside!” Feng Wei hurriedly said everything in one breath and looked at Qing Lang anxiously.
Qing Lang seemed calm as he stood there. However, there was a killing intent hidden in the calmness. This was particularly true regarding his eyes. His gaze instantly sharpened and turned cold. It was as though he would devour anyone who dared approach him.
“How did that happen?” Qing Lang asked in his deep voice.
“Fort Master, all of them are killed by the same person,” Feng Wei said with a forced smile on his face.
At the same time, a purple silhouette appeared in Feng Wei’s mind.
Previously, he had seen the purple silhouette during the Martial Competition of the Ten Dynasties organized by Skywolf Fort.
That person defeated ten young powerhouses and won first place in the Martial Competition of the Ten Dynasties.
Almost as soon as Feng Wei was done speaking, a powerful wave of aura flowed out of Qing Lang’s body and caused a disturbance in the clouds around them.
“Who is it?!” Qing Lang’s voice was cold and filled with killing intent.
“It’s Duan Ling Tian.” Feng Wei sighed.
“Duan Ling Tian?” The coldness on Qing Lang’s face vanished and was replaced with shock when he heard what Feng Wei said. “The person who won the Martial Competition of the Ten Dynasties that we organized?”
“The Brother Ling Tian that Young Miss mentioned?” A yellow silhouette of a lady appeared in Qing Lang’s mind as he spoke. He could not help but shudder.
“Yes.” Feng Wei nodded immediately.
“I supposed all of you didn’t do anything to Duan Ling Tian?” Qing Lang asked in his deep voice. His eyes turned fierce as he looked at Feng Wei, Ning Can, and the other two Vice Fort Masters of Skywolf Fort.
“No.” The four of them shook their heads immediately.
“Great… Remember this, don’t try your luck when you encounter Duan Ling Tian. The things that the people behind Young Miss would do is beyond all of your imagination!” Qing Lang’s face became extremely serious as he spoke.
Feng Wei and the others exchanged looks when they heard Qing Lang’s words. They could see the fear in each other’s eyes.
“Should we tell Fort Master about us chasing after Duan Ling Tian after the Martial Competition of the Ten Dynasties ended?” The four of them communicated secretly with each other through Voice Transmission.
“I think it’s better if we don’t say anything… Since Fort Master’s afraid of that Young Miss Xue Nai, we’ll definitely suffer if he finds out.”
“That’s right, we can’t tell him.”
Soon after, the four of them came to an understanding.
Meanwhile, the Fort Master of the Skywolf Fort, Qing Lang, remained oblivious.
Three silhouettes flew high in the sky in the northern area near the northern desert.
It was the silhouettes of two young ladies and an old lady.
The old lady’s face was impassive. However, the airflow remained undisturbed whenever she moved, unlike the two young ladies who caused a disturbance in the clouds.
“Qing Nu, please let me stay for a little longer… I haven’t found Brother Ling Tian yet.” The yellow-clad lady begged as she turned around and rolled her eyes mischievously at the azure-clad old lady.
“Young Miss, stop causing me trouble… Master’s very unhappy that you brought Young Miss Xue Yi with you and ran away from home. He asked me to bring the both of you back immediately,” the azure-clad old lady said helplessly. Her eyes were filled with love when she looked at the yellow-clad young lady.
The yellow-clad young lady was Han Xue Nai.
Han Xue Nai became depressed and lowered her head when she heard the azure-clad old lady’s words. “Father’s so annoying. I’m just taking a break outside, and he wants a say in this as well… Hmph! I won’t speak to him for a month when I get back! No, I won’t speak to him for two months.” The azure-clad old lady and the young lady next to her exchanged a strained smile when they heard Han Xue Nai mumbling to herself.
Soon after, Han Xue Nai’s mood seemed to have lifted as she recalled something. She lifted her head and looked at the azure-clad old lady while rolling her eyes cheekily. She asked, “Qing Nu, have Little Gold, Little Black, and Little White come out of that place?”
There was a sense of urgency on her beautiful face.
“Not yet.” The azure-clad old lady shook her head.
“Will they be able to come out safely?” Han Xue Nai asked worriedly.
“The two little pythons should be alright… Their bloodline has reached the variant Saint Beast’s descendants standard. It’s quite likely that they’ll transform into variant Saint Beasts in there,” the azure-clad old lady said.
“How about Little Gold?” Han Xue Nai’s expression changed slightly as she continued to ask anxiously, “Nothing will happen to it right? If something happens to it, how am I supposed to explain it to Brother Ling Tian?”
“It’s hard to say. The little gold mouse is a Jade-eyed Heavenly Mouse. It’s a Saint Beast’s descendant… Its bloodline is more stable so it’s much more difficult for it to transform into a Saint Beast compared to the two little pythons,” the azure-clad old lady said as she shook her head. Based on her words, everything was still uncertain.
“What’ll happen if it fails to transform?” Han Xue Nai asked helplessly.
“It’ll definitely die!” As a demon who had been to that place, the azure-clad lady was familiar with the place like the back of her hand.
‘It’ll definitely die!’
The four short words shocked Han Xue Nai so much that her expression changed immediately.
“Little Gold, please be safe,” Han Xue Nai mumbled to herself after she sighed.
“Young Miss, it’s time to go,” the azure-clad old lady said calmly. As soon as she spoke, nobody saw what she did, but she vanished with the two young ladies in tow.
It was as though they were never there.
Far away from the northern desert, in a luxurious and majestic palace on a floating island.
There were two silhouettes standing above the palace at the moment.
The two of them leaned on each other. It was a man and a lady.
The man wore azure clothes, and he looked dashing as he stood there.
His features were close to perfection like a sculpture that was meticulously sculpted.
His pair of straight and thick eyebrows made him look majestic.
His eyes that seemed calm under the straight eyebrows were looking in the distance. There were glimpses of green energy flashing in his eyes.
His gaze suddenly sharpened suddenly as though they could pierce through everything.
The lady next to him wore azure clothes as well. Her beautiful face seemed to dim everything in her surroundings.
They were a match made in heaven when they stood next to each other.
“Brother Feng, you should’ve brought Tian’er here… It worries me that we left him there alone,” the lady said softly and demurely.
“Rou’er, you finally brought this up… I have my reason for leaving Tian’er there. It’s for his own good. Please try and understand,” the man said.
“Brother Feng, I know that you want Tian’er to experience being on his own over there… But can’t you do the same here? Moreover, Tian’er will be under our watch if he’s here. I’ll feel more relieved if he’s here,” the lady said again.
“Rou’er, of course I’ve thought about what you said… But if I bring Tian’er here, it’ll only bring harm and no benefits to him.”
“I’m not sure how I can explain my reasoning to you… You’ll understand what I’m trying to say when you see Tian’er in the future,” the man said.
“But what if something happens to Tian’er since he’s alone there?” The lady asked anxiously.
“Don’t worry… I left behind three talismans for him that’ll save his life three times.” The man comforted the lady.
“What happens when he uses up all three talismans?”
“Then he’ll have to depend on himself.”
“Can’t we send someone to protect him? Protecting him secretly would work too.”
“The three talismans is the limit of my interference in his life… He’ll have to walk the path on his own for the rest of the journey! Do you think that Duan Ru Feng’s son is someone ordinary?”
“What if something happens to him?”
“We must believe in him.”
A few months after leaving the northern desert and traveling north, Duan Ling Tian finally arrived at his destination.
It was the area near Ruo Shui River. It was called the Northern Mountain Land.
“Northern Mountain Land… Northern Mountain… Back when I and Tian Wu were on the way to the Ancient Desert City with Uncle Feng, I remember the siblings that Uncle Feng saved are from the Northern Mountain Land.” Duan Ling Tian looked at the ice coffin hovering next to him in the air. To be exact, he was mumbling to himself as he looked at the red-clad lady lying in the ice coffin.
“Northern Mountain’s Lu Clan? I wonder if this Lu Clan is powerful in the Northern Mountain Land since there are countless forces here.” Duan Ling Tian was curious.
It was his first time in the Northern Mountain Land.
The reason he knew it was called the Northern Mountain Land was due to the map he studied at the Zeng family’s estate earlier. It had the Northern Mountain Land landmark on it.
The Ruo Shui River was on the north side of the Northern Mountain Land.
‘Although the map has Northern Mountain Land marked on it, it didn’t have a detailed introduction to the Northern Mountain Land… I’ll have to explore the place on my own to learn more about it,’ Duan Ling Tian thought to himself.
Duan Ling Tian began to explore the place with Xiong Quan and the ice coffin containing Feng Tian Wu. He was searching for a city within the Northern Mountain Land.
He finally found a city after spending half a day looking around.
It was a small city located in the south of Northern Mountain Land.
Although the city was small, the traffic was busy with many people entering and exiting.
“Xiong Quan, let’s enter the city.” Duan Ling Tian descended with the ice coffin after he spoke to Xiong Quan.
