Translator: EndlessFantasy Translation Editor: EndlessFantasy Translation
“The reason’s not important to us. What’s important is the end result.”
“Do you know the consequence of killing our Lu Clan’s lineal disciple?”
The fat and thin old men spoke almost simultaneously. Everyone heard their words clearly.
When they spoke, a terrifying aura surged out of their bodies and swept toward Duan Ling Tian as they glared at him.
However, Duan Ling Tian remained unmoved even in the face of the two imposing Martial Monarch.
He remained motionless like a mountain in the midst of a storm.
Both old men were stunned when they saw that. A hint of surprise could be seen on both their faces.
“This brat is pretty good… Too bad you killed a lineal disciple from our Lu Clan. You’ll have to die today!”
The old man who was as round as a ball narrowed his eyes and stepped forward. He was Lu Yuan, the Lu Clan’s Guardian Elder. The rolling energy on his body rose as though it was just waiting for the old man to release it.
“Elder Yuan, please show mercy!”
At the moment when Lu Yuan was about to attack Duan Ling Tian, a voice suddenly sounded. It caused Lu Yuan to withdraw his energy slightly.
His gaze then landed on the figure that appeared as quick as lightning in front of Duan Ling Tian.
Lu Yuan could not help but furrow his eyebrows when he saw the person pleading for mercy on Duan Ling Tian’s behalf.
He did not expect their Lu Clan’s Second Young Master would plead for mercy on behalf of the person who killed the Lu Clan’s Third Young Master.
An old man who was as skinny as bamboo looked at Lu Bai with a sullen expression. He was also a Lu Clan’s Guardian Elder, Lu Gui. His voice was indifferent as he said, “Lu Bai, you should know the Lu Clan’s rules as the Lu Clan’s Second Young Master… Withdraw!”
Lu Bai was a lineal disciple of the Lu Clan and also the Lu Clan’s Second Young Master.
However, the Lu Clan’s Guardian Elder was at the Martial Monarch Stage. They had a lofty status in the clan and was not inferior to the Clan Leader of Lu Clan.
A lineal disciple was beneath his notice.
“Elder Yuan, Elder Gui!” Lu Bai took a deep breath and focused his gaze on Lu Yuan and Lu Gui. He said in a tone that was neither arrogant nor servile, “Nobody’s to blame for Lu Huai’s death but himself!”
“As for Duan Ling Tian… He saved my life once. I will not stand and watch as my savior is killed!” Lu Bai said in one breath.
He looked at Lu Yuan and Lu Gui with a straight face. He did not waver once.
Lu Bai’s words created a storm.
“Duan Ling Tian saved the Lu Clan’s Second Young Master’s life?”
Many people were surprised.
“Young master saved the Lu Clan’s Second Young Master’s life?” Xiong Quan was also stunned.
His Young Master did not mention this matter before.
Duan Ling Tian lifted an eyebrow slightly.
Among everyone present, apart from Lu Bai, the only one who knew the truth was him.
He did not save Lu Bai’s life.
The one who saved Lu Bai’s life was Feng Wu Dao, not him.
Naturally, he was aware of why Lu Bai had said that. He was trying to save his life from the two Lu Clan’s Martial Monarchs.
Lu Bai’s good intention warmed Duan Ling Tian’s heart.
“Lu Bai, it doesn’t change the fact that he killed one of our Lu clan’s lineal disciple even if he did save your life… He must die today!”
Lu Gui took a step forward and stood next to Lu Yuan.
At the same time, a domineering invisible energy surged out of his body. In just a moment, it shrouded Lu Bai completely and pulled him away from Duan Ling Tian.
“Elder Gui!” Lu Bai’s face changed dramatically.
He discovered the invisible energy pulling him away from Duan Ling Tian was extremely strong, so much so that he could not escape the binding at all.
“Considering that you’ve saved the life of our Lu Clan’s Second Young Master… We’ll give you ten breath for you to say your last words. After that, I’ll send you to hell.”
There was a flash in Lu Yuan’s small eyes when he spoke. His eyes were trained on Duan Ling Tian.
Xiong Quan had taken over the task of towing the ice coffin. At this moment, his expression had changed drastically. He took a step forward with the intention of shielding Duan Ling Tian like Lu Bai did earlier.
However, a thunderous voice he was very familiar with sounded just as he just took a step forward.
Xiong Quan turned to look at Duan Ling Tian as he said anxiously, “Young master, I… ”
“Don’t worry, nothing will happen to me.” Xiong Quan’s words were interrupted midway by a voice. He recognized his Young Master’s voice.
Although Xiong Quan did not know where Duan Ling Tian got his confidence from, he trusted Duan Ling Tian unconditionally. In the end, he stood earnestly at his original spot.
‘Nothing will happen?’
Lu Sou shook his head and sighed in the distance when he heard Duan Ling Tian’s words.
In his opinion, Duan Ling Tian did not realize the severity of the situation he was in.
Since he had killed the Lu Clan’s lineal disciple, he would have to be one of the two special types of people in order to escape death today!
There was no doubt about it.
“Is Duan Ling Tian crazy? He can still say he’s fine even at this moment?”
“I think he’s feigning confidence to console those around him.”
“Judging by the way the Lu Clan greeted Elder Yuan and Elder Gui… I think they must be two of the three Lu Clan’s Guardian Elders, Lu Yuan, and Lu Gui. Two Martial Monarch powerhouses!”
“Elder Yuan and Elder Gui personally came here. It’s futile for the Lu Clan’s Second Young Master to plead for mercy… This Duan Ling Tian will definitely die!”
Everyone present was caught up in their discussion. They thought Duan Ling Tian was insane.
At this moment, the look everyone gave Duan Ling Tian was as though they were looking at a dead person.
In their opinion, there was no way Duan Ling Tian would survive this.
From the very beginning, they did not think Duan Ling Tian belonged to either one of the two types of people the Lu Clan’s Second Young Master, Lu Bai, mentioned. Subconsciously, they all thought it was impossible.
Even Lu Bai thought it was impossible subconsciously.
“If Duan Ling Tian dies… How can I explain this to my savior if I meet him again in the future?”
Lu Bai who was bound at the side by Lu Gui’s power had an extremely glum expression on his face.
Although he felt anxious for Duan Lian Tian, he was completely helpless at the moment.
There was no way he could break out of the binding with his strength alone.
Lu Gui was a Martial Monarch powerhouse. It was far from what he could compete with.
“Arrogant kid!” Lu Gui had also heard Duan Ling Tian’s words. His eyes gleamed coldly.
If Lu Yuan did not say he would allow Duan Ling Tian to say his last words, Lu Gui would have already attacked Duan Ling Tian.
The fact that Duan Ling Tian dared to say that in front of him meant that he did not take him seriously.
“You have the duration of five breaths left!” Lu Yuan spoke in a low tone.
The expression on his face was also slightly ghastly.
He did not expect the purple-clad young man to be so arrogant. If he had known this earlier, he would not have given him a chance to say his last words.
Everyone continued watching as the situation progressed.
After Lu Yuan spoke, Duan Ling Tian extended his right hand out. He flipped it so his palm faced upward and the back of his hand faced downward.
“What’s he doing?”
Most of the people present were confused when they saw Duan Ling Tian’s movement. The could not figure out what he was trying to do.
After a while, two breaths time had passed. Lu Yuan coldly said again, “Three more breaths left.”
Since two breaths ago, Duan Ling Tian had maintained the same position.
Even Lu Yuan and Lu Gui, the two Lu Clan’s Guardian Elder at the Martial Monarch Stage, could not figure out what Duan Ling Tian was trying to do.
“Lu Yuan, hand him over to me once the time’s up,” Lu Gui said calmly. It was obvious he wanted to deal with Duan Ling Tian personally.
“En.” Lu Yuan nodded his head in assent.
“There’s only two breaths time left… Duan Ling Tian won’t die in vain since he’s dying in the hands of the Lu Clan’s Martial Monarch.”
“Do you think Duan Ling Tian has a problem in his head? He’s going to die soon, but still, he remains silent. Moreover, he’s posing in such a weird way as well.”
“Does he think the Lu Clan’s Elder Yuan and Elder Gui will show him mercy because of that? He’s too naive!”
“Duan Ling Tian’s a prodigy. The mistake he committed on impulse will end in a tragedy… This shows that those whom God loves, die young!”
“Well, he dug his own grave! He could’ve spared the Lu Clan’s Third Young Master, but he killed him.”
Everyone present was whispering among themselves. A lot of them thought it would be a waste for Duan Ling Tian to die just like that.
After all, not only did Duan Ling Tian show a strong innate talent in the Martial Dao, his innate talent in refining medicine was extraordinary as well. He could be considered as an all-rounded monster prodigy.
However, this monster prodigy, Duan Ling Tian, had to die just because he killed a Lu Clan’s lineal disciple.
Moments later, Lu Yuan opened his mouth again to say, “One more breath left.”
His voice became colder. Even his gaze on Duan Ling Tian was icy.
“Heng!” Lu Gui snorted as his robe billowed and fluttered in the wind.
The energy on his body began to brew. It rose and gained momentum as he prepared to attack after one breath. He was going to kill the purple-clad young man standing before him in a blow.
Everyone held their breath and silently watched as the Martial Monarch gathered his energy.
Xiong Quan clenched both his fists. Although he trusted Duan Ling Tian, he was still worried about Duan Ling Tian since he was influenced by the tense atmosphere.
Duan Ling Tian who had been quietly and calmly standing there with his right hand raised finally had a change in his expression when he saw Lu Gui was about to attack. There was a faint smile on his face.
The smile was so faint that nobody saw it.
Finally, one breath had passed. Everyone present trembled in their hearts.
When everyone’s eyes shifted to Lu Gui to watch him make his move, they found him hovering in the air motionlessly.
At this moment, Lu Gui was staring blankly ahead. He was dumbstruck.
