Translator: EndlessFantasy Translation Editor: EndlessFantasy Translation
In their eyes, the Lu Clan’s people were like ants. It was not difficult to kill them at all.
However, these people represented the entire Lu Clan. Killing all of them was equivalent to annihilating the Lu Clan.
At that time, the Inner Land’s first-rate forces that had once sworn they would protect the Lu Clan would descend upon them with vengeance. Even if the first-rate forces could not annihilate the forces they belonged to, they themselves would not be able to escape death.
After all, they were the instigators of this event.
“Don’t touch the Lu Clan’s people. Don’t touch Lu Rui as well! Kill that four old men, and nobody in the Lu Clan will be able to stop us anymore! At that time, it’ll be easy for us to take Duan Ling Tian away!” Cheng He told the other four.
Initially, his face had a grave expression. However, by the time he reached the end of his sentence, his eyes were gleaming coldly as though he was about to devour someone.
Upon hearing Cheng He’s words, all four of them nodded their heads in agreement.
The price they would have to pay if they had to annihilate the Lu Clan was too high. It was acceptable for them to kill a few Martial Monarchs in the Lu Clan as long as they did not touch the foundation of the Lu Clan.
“Leng Chi, you deal with Lu Qiu,” Cheng He ordered Leng Chi.
“Alright.” Leng Chi nodded nonchalantly. His cold eyes were staring fixedly at Lu Qiu.
“Ou Lie, you’ll handle the other three old men from the Lu Clan. Is that okay?” Cheng He looked at Ou Lie. He wanted him to deal with the Lu Clan’s three Guardian Elders.
“They’ll definitely die in the span of three breaths!” Ou Lie’s reply was curt. However, it was filled with confidence and certainty.
“As for Mo Jie and I, we’ll be responsible for blocking Lu Rui and the rest of the Lu Clan. Elder Chen, Duan Ling Tian’s woman’s strength is quite powerful. Subdue her, but don’t kill her! She’s still of use to us!” Cheng He looked at the blue-clad old man who followed Mo Jie like a shadow.
The blue-clad old man nodded.
“Ou Lie, after you kill the three old men from the Lu Clan, you’ll join forces with Leng Chi to kill Lu Qiu. After Lu Qiu dies, you’ll search for Duan Ling Tian and subdue him!” Cheng He looked at Ou Lie again.
Ou Lie nodded his head to show he understood.
The atmosphere was incredible tensed and heavy. Cheng He and the other four were about to make their move —
“Tian Wu, you’re hurt?” A voice filled with urgency and anger suddenly resonated in the air and broke the silence.
At once, everybody’s attention was caught by a figure that materialized in the air abruptly.
It was a purple-clad young man. The young man was handsome, and his features were sharp. His eyes, with dashing brows that were slightly slanted, were gleaming with iciness and killing intent.
He made his move when the crowd’s attention was on him.
Dragon Soaring The Nine Heavens!
It was as though his entire body had transformed into a purple divine dragon. He charged out like lightning and arrived beside the red-clad woman with a slightly pale face who was standing in the distance.
“Tian Wu, swallow this.” The purple-clad young man put a brightly gleaming pill into her mouth.
The red-clad woman trusted him completely. She swallowed the pill without any hesitation.
“That pill… H-How’s this possible?!” Cheng He who was standing in the distance suddenly trembled violently.
His gaze was originally fixed on the pill the purple-clad young man took out. He only regained his senses when the pill was swallowed by the red-clad woman. However, shock was still written all over his face.
“Huh?” Cheng He’s shock stunned the other four as well. They all looked at him in confusion.
“The grade one Life Recovery Pill he just took out has more than 95% purity!” Cheng He explained when he saw the confusion on the other four’s faces.
The red-clad woman in the distance who had just swallowed the pill immediately regained colors on her cheeks and her body was brimming with vigor and vitality, proving Cheng He’s words right. She had completely recovered.
Where were the signs of her being injured?
Many people who heard Cheng He’s words were dumbfounded when they looked at the scene before their eyes.
“T-This grade one Life Recovery Pill has more than 95% purity?” Lu Rui was the first to regain his senses. He gulped.
“Earlier, Miss Tian Wu has already consumed a grade one Life Recovery Pill with 91% purity. Although her injuries have healed a little, it’s not completely healed.” Lu Yuan was staring at the scene unfolding before his eyes in bafflement. He went completely still from the shock. “A grade one Life Recovery Pill with more than 95% purity actually has such strong medicinal efficacy?”
“The closer the pill’s purity is to 100%, the more terrifying the pill’s medicinal efficacy would be!” Lu Zhi said solemnly, “It didn’t cross my mind that Elder Duan is able to refine grade one Life Recovery Pills with more than 95% purity… It’s so close to achieving 100% purity! The strength of the medicinal efficacy must be at least double the strength of grade one Life Recovery Pills with 91% purity!”
The group of Lu Clan’s elders was still in shock over Cheng He’s words when…
Cheng He’s gaze was burning a hole through the purple-clad young man standing in the distance. He asked loudly, “Duan Ling Tian, looks like I’ve underestimated you! I can’t believe you can actually refine grade one pills with more than 95% purity! The grade one Life Recovery Pill you just gave her had 97% purity, right?”
This time, his voice was even louder, and all the Lu Clan’s people on the scene heard it clearly.
“WHAT?! A grade one Life Recovery Pill with 97% purity?”
“Are there even pills with such high purity on Cloud Continent?”
“I-It’s impossible, isn’t it?”
Each and every one of the Lu Clan’s disciple began to discuss. Their skeptical gazes quickly landed on the purple-clad young man in the distance.
Suddenly, one of the Lu Clan’s disciples who was staring at the purple-clad young man cried out, “That’s Elder Duan!”
“WHAT?! He’s that Elder Duan?!” All the Lu Clan’s disciples were in an uproar.
“He’s the First Interim Elder of our Lu Clan? That grade one alchemist who can refine grade one pills with more than 90% purity?”
“He’s young, just like the rumor said!”
“Looks like the old man wasn’t lying… Elder Duan can refine grade one Life Recovery Pills with 97% purity!”
“I think so too! After all, Elder Duan defies all common logic!”
Soon after, all the Lu Clan’s disciples were staring at the purple-clad young man in the distance — Duan Ling Tian.
To the younger generation in the Lu Clan, Duan Ling Tian was their ultimate idol, and he was greatly respected and admired.
“Second Brother, no wonder I found him and the red-clad sister familiar… As it turns out, it really is them!” A girl with a child-like face muttered when she was hit by a pang of realization.
Another young man stood next to her.
“I didn’t think you’ll still be able to recognize him.” The young man smiled faintly.
The young man was none other than Lu Bai, the Second Young Master of the Lu Clan.
As for the girl beside him, there was no doubt about her identity. She was none other than Lu Ping. She was the girl Feng Wu Dao previously saved along with her brother.
Her brother was Lu Bai.
“Duan Ling Tian, you really gave me a huge gift.” Lu Bai’s eyes were filled with gratitude when he looked at the purple-clad young man in the distance.
Lu Bai had found out about Lu Song’s death not too long ago. Barring any unforeseen circumstances, he was sure to inherit the position of Clan Leader in the Lu Clan.
All of this was made possible because of the purple-clad young man. If it was not for the purple-clad young man, it would still be uncertain if he would get that position.
Duan Ling Tian was slightly shocked that Cheng He was able to see through the purity of the grade one Life Recovery Pill with just one glance.
Similar to a senior lecturing a junior, he coldly looked at Cheng He as he remarked, “What a good eyesight… However, what a pity. You have no desire to keep forging ahead. Instead, you’re focused on dishonest practices. You’re destined not to make any more progress in this lifetime.”
“You’re just a lucky young boy who obtained some secret technique from God-knows-where, and you actually dare to criticize me? When I became an alchemist, let alone you, even your mother might still be in her mother’s womb! Who do you think you are to rebuke me?!” Upon hearing Duan Ling Tian’s words, Cheng He’s were ablaze as though it could really shoot out fire.
“That’s right, when you first became an alchemist, my mother might still be in her mother’s womb…” Duan Ling Tian smirked. He paused for a moment before continuing, “If I was you, I would’ve killed myself a long time ago… You’re already so old, but it seems like you spent most of your time living like a dog! How’s it possible that you’re not even as good as a young boy like me?!”
Duan Ling Tian’s words were full of mockery, implying that Cheng He was inferior to a young boy!
The moment Duan Ling Tian’s words left his mouth, many Lu clan’s disciples burst into a laughing fit. Disdain could be seen in their eyes when they looked at Cheng He.
“So much for being the Guild Leader of the Alchemists Guild’s Main Guild in the Southern Outer Land!”
“Exactly! Our Lu Clan’s Elder Duan is barely one-third of his age and yet, his achievement in the Medicine Refinement Dao has long surpassed his!”
“He’s basically a trash in front of Elder Duan!”
“Trash?! What a perfect word to describe him!”
The Lu Clan’s disciples whispered among each other. Their words were blunt as they mocked Cheng He to their hearts’ content.
Although their voices were not particularly loud, it was still clearly heard by Cheng He. It caused his face to turn green before it paled. The rage in his eyes continued to intensify.
“Duan Ling Tian! Don’t be so full of yourself! You’re just lucky you managed to obtain the secret technique! Otherwise, will you really be able to refine pills with more than 90% purity?” Cheng He hissed with disdain after he took a deep breath to calm himself down.
Until now, he still believed Duan Ling Tian was lucky and came across some secret technique that allowed him to refine pills with more than 90% purity.
If he obtained the secret technique, he would be able to refine pills with 90% purity as well.
The moment the crowd heard of Cheng He mentioning the words ‘secret technique’, they immediately shifted their gazes toward Duan Ling Tian in unison.
