Chapter 1126: News About the Two Ladies
Translator: EndlessFantasy Translation Editor: EndlessFantasy Translation
Duan Ling Tian performed the Blood Ownership Claim as soon as he obtained the Spatial Ring.
His eyes lit up when he looked in the Spatial Ring. “There are at least… 3,000 Origin Stones in there!”
More than 3,000 Origin Stones!
One had to know even if all the Martial Monarchs from the three second-rate forces in the northern desert combined all the Origin Stones they possessed, it would only amount to a few hundred of Origin Stones.
That number was nowhere close the 3,000 Origin Stones in the Spatial Ring.
After Duan Ling Tian put the Spatial Ring in his hand away, he retrieved the Spatial Rings from the seven Gold-Devouring Organization’s guardians.
Apart from the 3,000 Origin Stones from the Gold-Devouring Organization’s leader’s Spatial Ring, there were around 500 Origin Stones in the ten Spatial Rings. Although it was far from the fortune the Gold-Devouring Organization’s leader possessed, it was good enough.
‘Adding all the Origin Stones together, I have about 4,000 of them now,’ Duan Ling Tian thought to himself.
There were a lot of uses for Origin Stones. It was the most common currency on Cloud Continent.
Apart from that, it could be used for cultivation, inscribing Inscription, and setting up Inscription Formation.
‘Unless it’s a second-rate force like the Northern Mountain’s Lu Clan and Ou Clan that have 10,000 years of legacy, the average second-rate forces might not even have as many Origin Stones as I have now even if they combine all their Origin Stones together.’ Duan Ling Tian was quite certain about this.
‘I’m sure the Gold-Devouring Organization has been swindling Origin Stones out of people at the Ruo Shui Riverside for quite some time now… Otherwise, it’s impossible for them to own so many Origin Stones!’ Duan Ling Tian figured the matter out easily.
‘Regardless, our gain this time is pretty good.’ Duan Ling Tian had a charming smile on his face as he turned to look at Xiong Quan. “Xiong Quan, retrieve the Spatial Rings from the others… See if there’s anything valuable.”
“Yes,” Xiong Quan replied respectfully before he busied himself with his task.
Duan Ling Tian lifted his arm and retrieved the Profundity Fragment from the Gold-Devouring Organization’s leader’s body. It was a First Level Monarch Stage Water Profundity Fragment.
“Hmm?” All of a sudden, Duan Ling Tian seemed to have noticed something as he lifted his head to look into the distance. He had a frown on his face. “Who’s that?!”
After Duan Ling Tian spoke, the clouds in the sky shifted and revealed a pitch black beast flying as it flapped its wings. It flew to the other end and vanished before Duan Ling Tian’s eyes.
However, Duan Ling Tian’s attention was not on the flying beast. His eyes were trained on the clouds in the sky.
There was someone there.
The flying beast was just a way to divert the attention away from that person.
Duan Ling Tian moved and vanished from his spot.
He was high above the sky when he reappeared.
Duan Ling Tian realized the person hiding behind the clouds was an old man. The old man threw down something that glowed before he disappeared.
“It’s a communication jade slip!” Duan Ling Tina’s expression changed.
The communication jade slip was an Inscription Formation with a lot of Inscriptions. The jade slip could record information to be sent to another person.
Without further delay, Duan Ling Tian chased after the communication jade slip. However, he could not find any trace of the communication jade slip at all.
Duan Ling Tian’s face turned somber.
He knew it was impossible for him to find the communication jade slip.
He had no choice but to head back at this moment.
The old man was no longer there when he returned.
“Trying to run?” Duan Ling Tian scoffed. He arrived quickly before the old man managed to get very far. “Do you think that you’ll be able to escape from me when you’re only a First Level Martial Monarch martial artist?” Duan Ling Tian blocked the old man’s path as he looked at him in disdain.
“Who are you?” Duan Ling Tian asked with his deep voice. His eyes were gleaming coldly.
“Will you promise to spare my life if I tell you?” The old man asked after taking a deep breath. He looked anxiously at Duan Ling Tian.
“It’ll depend if I’m satisfied with your answer,” Duan Ling Tian answered calmly.
“I’m from the Yin Yang Sect,” the old man said after taking a deep breath.
“Yin Yang Sect?” Duan Ling Tian narrowed his eyes as he studied the old man. “Are you sure you’re from the Yin Yang Sect? Let me tell you, someone disguised himself as a Yin Yang Sect’s disciple earlier… Do you know what happened to him?”
“I saw… he’s dead,” the old man said.
“It seems like you followed us here all the way from Ruo Shui Riverside.” Duan Ling Tian’s eyes were gleaming fiercely.
“Yes.” The old man did not deny this.
“Since you’re from the Yin Yang Sect… Let me ask you, do you know two female disciples from the Yin Peak named Li Fei and Ke’er?” Duan Ling Tian asked calmly as he looked into the old man’s eyes.
“How do you know the two direct disciples of the Yin Peak’s Vice Peak Master in our Yin Yang Sect?” The old man was surprised when he heard Duan Ling Tian’s question.
“Yin Peak’s Vice Peak Master? Direct disciples?” Duan Ling Tian raised his eyebrows. He was almost certain the Yin Peak’s Vice Peak Master was the Big Sister that Qin Xiang, the Peak Master of Seven Star Sword Sect’s Alkaid Peak, mentioned.
She was the female powerhouse who insisted his two fiancees stayed back previously.
“The two ladies you mentioned are the direct disciples of the Yin Peak’s Vice Master in the Yin Yang Sect. Also, I heard the one called Ke’er will be married to the son of the Yang Peak’s Peak Master in half a year.” The old man nodded. He had a reverent expression on his face when he spoke about the Peak Master of Yang Peak.
The latter part of the old man’s words struck Duan Ling Tian like a bolt of thunder. He instantly paled.
Duan Ling Tian’s eyes turned red as he glared at the old man. He asked the old man in his deep voice. “What did you say?! Did you say Ke’er will be marrying the son of your Yang Peak’s Peak Master?”
“Yes, yes.” Although he had no idea why Duan Ling Tian had such a big reaction, the old man did not dare to delay and replied immediately.
This was not a joking matter. The old man saw what the man standing before him was capable of.
The old man’s ability was similar to the Gold-Devouring Organization’s leader. And the leader did not manage to hurt Duan Ling Tian at all even after he unleashed his full power.
Most importantly, the man before him had a sidekick who had enough strength to wipe out the Gold-Devouring Organization.
He would definitely die if this person’s sidekick attacked him. Duan Ling Tian did not even have to lift a hand.
It was natural he did not dare to delay when he spoke to Duan Ling Tian.
“Impossible!” Duan Ling Tian shouted. Origin Energy ran rampant on his body before it turned into a five-colored energy. It looked like a five-colored flame as it surged and soared before forming the shape of a sword.
Heaven and Earth Energy rumbled in the air and formed the Heaven and Earth Phenomenon.
Two ancient black dragons’ silhouettes appeared immediately and occupied half of the sky. They released an extremely terrifying aura. It was truly an astonishing sight!
Meanwhile, a few thousand of ancient horned dragons’ silhouettes appeared. However, they were not worth mentioning compared to the two ancient black dragons’ silhouettes.
“Two… Two ancient black dragons’ strength!” Although he knew the purple-clad young man before him was powerful, the old man did not expect him to be this powerful. He was so powerful that the old man began fearing for his life.
Suddenly, the old man’s expression changed drastically as though he had noticed something.
All he felt was a gust of wind before the purple-clad young man appeared before him in just a blink of an eye.
Duan Ling Tian seemed like he had lost his mind as he charged toward the old man like a bolt of lightning with his arms extended and bloodshot eyes. He strangled the old man with his hands that were rumbling with Origin Energy. He could kill the old man very easily.
“Did you say Ke’er will be married to the son of your Yang Peak’s Peak Master?” Duan Ling Tian asked with his deep voice.
“Yes… Yes…” At this moment, the old man figured the purple-clad young man must have a special relationship with the Yin Peak’s Vice Peak Master’s direct disciple, Ke’er.
He was afraid that Duan Ling Tian would strangle him to death in a moment of impulse so he immediately blurted out what he had heard, “I… I heard that… That Ke’er… Didn’t agree to it initially… But… The Peak Master of Yang Peak held Li Fei hostage and said he would kill Li Fei if Ke’er doesn’t marry his son!” The old man’s face turned red as he struggled to finish speaking.
He looked at Duan Ling Tian desperately when he spoke.
When the old man was done speaking, the redness in Duan Ling Tian’s eyes faded away, and his raging aura calmed down as well. At the same time, he let go of his grip on the old man’s neck.
Duan Ling Tian calmed himself down.
Ke’er did not willingly agree to marry the son of the Yang Peak’s Peak Master!
“What happened? Aren’t they the Yin Peak’s Vice Peak Master’s direct disciples? Does the Yin Peak’s Vice Peak Master not care about this?” Duan Ling Tian asked with his deep voice.
“It’s not that she doesn’t care. It’s more like she can’t.” The old man moved his neck and said slowly, “The Peak Master and Vice Peak Master of Yin Peak returned from a trip a year ago with grave injuries. They’re still healing in the Yin Peak’s forbidden area until now!”
“Due to this incident, the great disciple of the Yin Peak’s Vice Master, Yang Xue, tried to enter the forbidden area multiple times but to no avail,” the old man said before he sighed.
Duan Ling Tian’s face turned somber again after heard the old man’s words.
“Peak Master of Yang Peak!” At this moment, his body released a cold killing intent as though he would devour anyone who dared approach him.
“When is the Yin Yang Sect’s swift boat arriving? Will I be able to arrive at the Yin Yang Sect in within half a year?” Duan Ling Tian asked coldly as he looked at the old man.
“Our Yin Yang Sect’s swift boat will arrive in half a month’s time. If everything goes as planned, you’ll arrive at the Inner Land and our Yin Yang Sect after three months,” the old man replied honestly. He was really terrified of the purple-clad young man before him.
He was facing a powerhouse that could utilize the strength of two ancient black dragons after all. It would be as easy as killing chickens and trimming weed if Duan Ling Tian wanted to kill him.
He could only hope Duan Ling Tian would spare his life since he was being cooperative.
Duan Ling Tian was relieved when he found out he would make it to the Yin Yang Sect in time.
“Ke’er, Little Fei’er… Please wait for me. I’ll be there to save both of you soon! I’ll make those who hurt you pay for it.” Duan Ling Tian looked in the Inner Land’s direction. He was dying to save the two ladies from the hell they were trapped in.
“What’s in the communication jade slip you sent out earlier?” Duan Ling Tian took a deep breath and looked at the old man again after he managed to suppress his rage slightly.
