Translator: EndlessFantasy Translation Editor: EndlessFantasy Translation
When they entered the Lu Clan’s estate, Lu Bai’s eyes unintentionally fell on the ice coffin next to Duan Ling Tian. It was his first time seeing the face of the lady who lay in the ice coffin.
He had a deep impression of the red-clad lady.
She was the lady who was with Duan Ling Tian and his life-savior when he was almost killed back then.
He was surprised by how beautiful the lady was at that time. He had never seen such a beautiful lady in the Northern Mountain Land.
“She’s the daughter of your savior.” Duan Ling Tian’s eyes were filled with fondness when he looked at Feng Tian Wu who lay in the ice coffin.
“My savior’s daughter?” Lu Bai’s expression changed slightly. “What happened to her?” At this moment, Lu Bai began to closely observe Feng Tian Wu who was lying in the ice coffin. Soon after, he realized that Feng Tian Wu’s body still possessed a strong life breath. “She’s in a deep sleep?”
“Her soul’s been severed so she’s in a coma.” Duan Ling Tian sighed.
Lu Bai nodded solemnly. However, Duan Ling Tian was not sure if he understood the situation.
“Young Master.” At this moment, Xiong Quan who was following by Duan Ling Tian’s side said to him respectfully, “I remember you said Miss Tian Wu would wake up as long as you find some rare and precious materials…”
“Lu Clan has existed for 10,000 years, perhaps they have the precious materials that will help wake Miss Tian Wu!” Xiong Quan looked at Lu Bai anticipatively after he finished his sentence.
Xiong Quan’s words jolted Duan Ling Tian.
‘Why didn’t I think about that earlier?’
Lu Clan was a clan that had existed for 10,000 years.
On the Cloud Continent, apart from the two Ancient Clans that were on top in the Cloud Continent, there were very few forces that still existed after 10,000 years.
Naturally, Duan Ling Tian knew that very well. It did not occur to him because his head was occupied with all the impossibilities.
Since he inherited the Rebirth Martial Emperor’s memory, he knew the precious materials were extremely rare. It was rare on the Cloud Continent, and there was none in the great treasure the Rebirth Martial Emperor left behind.
Due to that, he had subconsciously thought it was impossible to find the precious materials in the Outer Land since there might not be any even in the Inner Land.
“Lu Bai, does the Lu Clan have any collection of Soul Fixing Root and Soul Stabilizing Grass?” Duan Ling Tian asked urgently as he looked at Lu Bai.
Although he was uncertain if Lu Clan possessed the two precious materials that could help fix Feng Tian Wu’s soul, he decided to ask anyway. He could not miss any opportunities.
No matter what, Lu Clan had existed for 10,000 years. They might have a collection of the two precious materials.
“Soul Fixing Root? Soul Stabilizing Grass?” Lu Bai shook his head when he heard Duan Ling Tian’s question. “It’s my first time hearing about these two items…”
“Why don’t I help you settle down in your accommodation first? After your rest, I’ll take you to the Clan Leader. Perhaps the Clan Leader might know something about it,” Lu Bai suggested.
“Hmm.” Duan Ling Tian nodded. There was a hint of hope in his eyes.
If Lu Clan really possessed the Soul Fixing Root and Soul Stabilizing Grass, he would be able to concoct a potion to fix Tian Wu’s severed soul and wake her up.
‘I hope I’ll get lucky,’ Duan Ling Tian thought to himself.
No matter if it was the Soul Fixing Root or the Soul Stabilizing Grass, both of them were rare and precious materials on the Cloud Continent. Even the Rebirth Martial Emperor had only seen it a few times.
Soon after, Duan Ling Tian and Xiong Quan arrived at the buildings on the east side of the Lu Clan’s estate under Lu Bai’s lead. They arrived outside of an isolated mansion surrounded by other mansions.
“Second Young Master.” Outside the spacious mansion, a pretty servant stood there and bowed to Lu Bai respectfully.
“Hmm.” Lu Bai nodded to the servant and said solemnly, “From today onward, Elder Duan will be staying here… I’ll send a few more people here later, please treat Elder Duan well.”
“If Elder Duan isn’t satisfied with your performance, I can’t afford to take the blame from the Clan Leader! Do you understand?” Lu Bai’s words managed to successfully scare the servant standing at the entrance of the mansion.
“Elder Duan?” The servant’s eyes darted to Duan Ling Tian before it finally settled on Xiong Quan.
In her opinion, this older man looked more like an elder.
“Then I won’t disturb the both of you.” Lu Bai smiled and nodded at Duan Ling Tian and Xiong before he said, “When the both of you are well rested, just get her to bring both of you to the mansion I’m living in.”
“Sure.” Duan Ling Tian and Xiong Quan both nodded.
After Lu Bai left, the servant heaved a sigh of relief as though her burden had been lifted. She then smiled as she looked at Xiong Quan. “Nice meeting you, Elder Duan. My name’s Xiao Yun. I’ll be taking care of your daily necessities from today onward.”
Xiong Quan felt awkward. “Girl, you’re mistaken… My Young Master’s Elder Duan,” Xiong Quan said in embarrassment and looked at Duan Ling Tian.
“Ahh!” Servant Xiao Yun was surprised. She then began to observe Duan Ling Tian as she revealed an expression of disbelief on her beautiful face. She mumbled, “Are… Are you really Elder Duan?”
Duan Ling Tian was amused by servant Xiao Yun and asked jokingly, “What? I don’t look like one?”
“No… No! Elder Duan, I… I just thought it’s a little unbelievable. Our Lu Clan has never had any elders as young as you,” servant Xiao Yun said immediately. She proceeded to observe Duan Ling Tian curiously.
It was as though she was trying to figure out what was special about Duan Ling Tian, and how he was able to become a Lu Clan’s foreign elder.
Although she was only a servant, she knew everything about the Lu Clan.
Unless a Lu Clan’s foreign disciple was very capable, it was definitely impossible for them to become an elder.
“Elder Duan, please come in.” Soon after, servant Xiao Yun regained her senses and welcomed Duan Ling Tian into the mansion behind her. She arranged accommodation for Duan Ling Tian in a spacious room.
The room was big and furnished with all the necessary furniture. It was the master bedroom of the mansion.
When Duan Ling Tian lifted his arm, the ice coffin followed him into the room and landed on a table in the room sturdily.
“So beautiful!” Servant Xiao Yun noticed the ice coffin that had been following Duan Ling Tian from the beginning. She only had the chance to look at it properly now. Soon after, she noticed the red-clad lady lying in the ice coffin.
She could not help but feel a little embarrassed when she saw the red-clad lady’s beautiful face.
“If there’s nothing else, all of you can dismiss yourselves… I would like to take a rest,” Duan Ling Tian said.
“Yes, Young Master,” Xiong Quan said respectfully and looked at servant Xiao Yun. “Girl, we should leave now.”
Servant Xiao Yun regained her senses and looked away from the red-clad lady lying in the ice coffin unwillingly. She then followed Xiong Quan out of the room.
Xiong Quan closed the door for Duan Ling Tian.
“Uncle, how should I address you?” Servant Xiao Yun looked at Xiong Quan.
“Xiong Quan,” Xiong Quan said in a cold manner.
“Uncle Xiong Quan… Do you know who is that lady lying in the ice coffin next to Elder Duan? It’s my first time seeing such a beautiful lady,” servant Xiao Yun asked curiously.
“She’s Young Master’s lady.” Xiong Quan sighed. He noticed that servant Xiao Yun was about to ask another question so he quickly said, “Alright, girl. Stop asking so many questions… Please arrange a room for me as well.”
After Xiong Quan and servant Xiao Yun left the master bedroom, Duan Ling Tian went to the ice coffin and caressed it softly. He looked into the ice coffin and gently stared at Feng Tian Wu who was lying in there.
“Tian Wu, rest well… Big Brother Duan will wake you up very soon, I won’t let you wait for long,” Duan Ling Tian said softly, his voice was extremely gently.
A while later, Duan Ling Tian changed his clothes and rested on the bed. He fell asleep quickly.
It had been a long time since he had a good rest like this.
On the other side, Xiong Quan settled down in his room following servant Xiao Yun’s arrangement.
After getting Xiong Quan settled in, servant Xiao Yun’s face was filled with doubts. “Where did Elder Duan come from? Judging from his age, he shouldn’t be much older than I am.”
“That’s not right!” Soon after, servant Xiao Yun seemed to recall something as her beautiful face faintly changed. “In the Lu Clan, those who have the capability to become foreign elders are either someone with powerful ability or some outstanding alchemist.”
“If Elder Duan’s human, judging by his age, it’s impossible that he has a powerful ability. It’s even more impossible for him to be an alchemist and our Lu Clan’s foreign elder!”
“That means… He’s a demon! A powerful demon!” Sweat was dripping down her forehead as she thought about this.
Never in her life had she met or interacted with a demon before.
“I heard that demons have strange temper… Some of them would even transform back to their original appearance to eat a man alive.” Servant Xiao Yun began to shiver as she thought about this.
“Sister Xiao Yun!” All of a sudden, an oriole-like voice that came from outside the mansion snapped servant Xiao Yun out of her thoughts. She walked out of the mansion after wiping the cold sweat off her face.
She saw six servants walking to her as soon as she stepped out of the mansion entrance.
“Did… Second Young Master asked all of you to come?” As Lu Clan’s servants, they knew each other very well. Xiao Yun’s eyes were wide opened from the shock when she saw the six servants.
From what she knew, two to three servants at the most would be relegated to the mansions the elders were staying.
Even the mansion the Clan Leader was living in only had five servants.
However, there were a total of seven servants, including her, just to serve the foreign elder?
“Who… Who’s that Elder Duan?!” At this moment, servant Xiao Yun faintly felt that something was not quite right.
Even if that Elder Duan was a Demon Monarch powerhouse, did he deserve such an over-the-top treatment?
“Sister Xiao Yun, you’ll be our big boss from today onward… You’re really lucky to be given such a wonderful job.” The six servants who just arrived looked at servant Xiao Yun enviously.
It caused servant Xiao Yun to feel even more confused.
