“Nothing much, it’s just information about the Gold-Devouring Organization being destroyed… I sent that communication jade chip to the disciples of the Yin Yang Sect at the Ruo Shui Riverside,” the old man said honestly.
Subsequently, Duan Ling Tian found out from the old man that he was the person-in-charge of the Yin Yang Sect stationed at the Ruo Shui Riverside in the Southern Outer Land.
There were a total of three of them who were stationed at the Ruo Shui Riverside. As a First Level Martial Monarch martial artist himself, he was the leader of the trio.
“That means… The three of you knew what the Gold-Devouring Organization has been doing all along?” Duan Ling Tian asked.
“Yes.” The old man nodded.
“So, you guys don’t care about those people who disguised themselves as disciples of the Yin Yang Sect to sell the fake boarding tokens?” Duan Ling Tian proceeded to ask.
“Why would we bother since those Origin Stones would be ours eventually?” The old man replied casually.
“What do you mean?” What the old man said caught Duan Ling Tian by surprise.
“Throughout the years, there have been too many organizations similar to the Gold-Devouring Organization at the Ruo Shui Riverside… We usually let them do what they want and we put them to an end as soon as they’ve collected a certain amount of Origin Stones, then we take those away with us!”
“It’s just that you managed to do that before we did this time.” The old man forced a smile.
“I see.” Duan Ling Tian was surprised to hear that. At the same time, he seemed to recall something and asked, “So, does that mean… by doing that, I’m considered to have stolen Yin Yang Sect’s fortune?”
“That’s right.” The old man nodded.
“So, are you trying to take the Origin Stones away from me?” Duan Ling Tian squinted and looked amusedly at the old man as he asked.
“No! Why would I dare to do that!?” The old man panicked all of a sudden after hearing what Duan Ling Tian said. He shook his head immediately as he was afraid that Duan Ling Tian might misunderstand him.
It was no joke!
Taking the Origin Stones away from this person before him?
Unless he was sick of his life, he would not dare to do that even if his life was at risk.
“Even if you don’t dare to do that… I’m sure that the people who are taking charge of your Yin Yang Sect’s swift boat would be bold enough to do that as soon as they find out that I took the Origin Stones, wouldn’t they?” Duan Ling Tian gazed deeply into the old man’s eyes and asked.
“The most powerful person among those in charge of our Yin Yang Sect’s swift boat is only on Fourth Level Martial Monarch Stage. If the person knew about your ability, he wouldn’t dare offend you, Sir.” The old man forced a smile again.
“Furthermore, without using any Spirit Weapons, you’re able to utilize the strength of two ancient black dragons, Sir. Together with your 5,000 ancient horned dragons’ strength, it’s clear that you’re on Seventh Level Martial Monarch Stage… It’s impossible that we Yin Yang Sect would offend you just for the Origin Stones.” The old man’s forced smile was even more bitter.
The ability to execute the strength of two ancient black dragons and 5,000 ancient horned dragons…
Such an ability most probably belonged to a Seventh Level Martial Monarch powerhouse!
A Seventh Level Martial Monarch powerhouse’s Origin Energy at full force was similar to a single ancient black dragon’s strength.
Ordinary Seventh Level Martial Monarch powerhouses would usually comprehend a type of Seventh Level Monarch Stage Profundity and an additional one or two types of Second Level Monarch Stage Profundity.
The former was similar to the strength of 8,000 ancient horned dragons while the latter was similar to the strength of 5,000 ancient horned dragons!
To combine them would be similar to the power of two ancient black dragons and 3,000 ancient horned dragons.
“A Seventh Level Martial Monarch martial artist whose ability’s more powerful would perform with even more powerful strength… To be able to do what he does, it’s almost impossible for him to be below the Seventh Level Martial Monarch Stage,” the old man speculated as he studied the purple-clad young man before him.
At that very moment, Duan Ling Tian had his eyes locked on the old man. He could tell that he was telling the truth.
“A Fourth Level Martial Monarch taking charge of the swift boat? That makes sense,” Duan Ling Tian thought to himself.
Although there were many Martial Monarch powerhouses in the first-rate forces, it was a big gap between a Fourth Level and a Seventh Level Martial Monarch Stage.
It was no surprise that the old man had thought that he was a Seventh Level Martial Monarch Stage martial artist.
There were not many genuine Seventh Level Martial Monarch Stage martial artists who could surpass him in strength without using Spirit Weapons.
“How many people are on the Seventh Level Martial Monarch Stage in your Yin Yang Sect?” Duan Ling Tian asked directly while looking at the old man.
He would be crossing the Ruo Shui River via the swift boat this time to get to the Inner Land. He would infiltrate the Yin Yang Sect when he arrived to retrieve his two fiancés. He would definitely have to fight the Yin Yang Sect powerhouses while he was at it.
Therefore, he had asked the old man that question as he wanted to be mentally prepared besides finding out about the Yin Yang Sect’s ability.
Just like the saying ‘if you know your enemy better than you know yourself, you will never suffer defeat’!
The old man could not help but be shocked by Duan Ling Tian’s question. It was obvious that he did not expect Duan Ling Tian’s question, but he answered honestly anyway.
“From what I know… Our Yin Yang Sect doesn’t have many Seventh Level Martial Monarchs. You can practically count them on your hand. Our Yang Peak’s Peak Master, two Vice Peak Masters, and a Guardian Elder are all on Seventh Level Martial Monarch Stage.”
“Also, Yin Peak’s Peak Master and two Vice Peak Masters are Seventh Level Martial Monarchs as well. I only know of these seven who are on that level,” the old man said slowly.
“Seven Seventh Level Martial Monarchs?” A gleam flashed in Duan Ling Tina’s eyes as he mumbled. Then, he proceeded to ask, “Is there any Ninth Level Martial Monarch in the sect?”
“That I don’t know… I only know about the Seven Seventh Level Martial Monarchs. Among them, the Yang Peak and the Yin Peak’s Peak Masters have the most powerful abilities.”
Duan Ling Tian nodded.
“Sir, are there any more questions? If not, I’ll make a move,” the old man took a deep breath and said to Duan Ling Tian as he seemed rather anxious.
If Duan Ling Tian was to kill him, he would definitely die even if he had ten lives.
“Yes.” Duan Ling Tian nodded calmly.
After receiving Duan Ling Tina’s consent, excitement was plastered all over the old man’s face and he moved, flying towards the Ruo Shui Riverside’s direction.
A fleeting sword whistle was heard, breaking the silence in Duan Ling Tian’s ears. Taken by surprise, he swiveled towards the source of sound immediately.
“Oh my…” Duan Ling Tian could not help but be astounded at what he saw.
There was a hole in the old man’s body who was supposed to be leaving. He had been pierced by a sword and he was dead.
A fiery elfin silhouette appeared before the old man in a blink of an eye. With her delicate hand, she grabbed him and took the old man’s Spatial Ring off.
She did not forget about the Profundity Fragment in the old man’s body.
After obtaining the Spatial Ring and Profundity Fragment, the fiery elfin silhouette moved again and dashed towards Duan Ling Tian.
At the same time, the old man’s body was falling from the sky.
All of a sudden, Duan Ling Tian could feel a scorching aura that was approaching him but he did not have the agility to dodge at all.
“Tian Wu, why did you kill him?” Duan Ling Tian looked at the old man that was going to fall onto the ground and asked in shock.
“Why can’t I kill him?” The silhouette was Feng Tian Wu. Confusion was apparent on her face as she handed the Profundity Fragment and Spatial Ring to Duan Ling Tian.
“It’s alright, you’ve killed him anyway.” Duan Ling Tian shook his head like it did not matter as he took the Profundity Fragment that Feng Tian Wu handed over.
He promised that he would not kill the old man as long as he was satisfied with his answer. The old man had been very cooperative and he was satisfied with his answers.
However, it was not him who had killed the old man but Tian Wu instead. It was not him who had asked Feng Tian Wu to kill him either.
Therefore, technically, he did not break his promise to the old man.
“Let’s go!” After informing Feng Tian Wu, Duan Ling Tian called Xiong Quan along and headed towards the Ruo Shui Riverside’s direction.
Not long after that, Duan Ling Tian and the other two arrived at the Ruo Shui Riverside once again.
Seeing that Duan Ling Tian and the rest were back, fear filled the faces of the people at the Ruo Shui Riverside. They only took a glance at them and dared not look again.
It was no joke!
After all, the sidekick among the three was already on Martial Monarch Stage.
If they were to look at them any longer, as soon as one of them was unhappy, he could kill the people like a piece of cake.
If that really happened, there was nowhere to which the people could cry for mercy.
Duan Ling Tian glanced through the people in an attempt to look for the two persons from the Yin Yang Sect who were stationed at the Ruo Shui Riverside. In the end, his attempt was to no avail.
None of them give it away.
‘They’re so cautious,’ Duan Ling Tian thought to himself.
He would observe around the Ruo Shui Riverside and look into the sky once in a while to make sure there was nobody hiding there. He wanted to be sure that everyone was gathered here, including the two Yin Yang Sect disciples.
“Senior, thanks for the advice earlier.” Duan Ling Tian looked at a particular old man and thanked him through Voice Transmission.
However, the old man did not respond to him.
At that moment, Duan Ling Tian noticed that the old man had kept his concerns to himself. He must be afraid that people would notice them communicating.
Duan Ling Tian then walked closer to the old man and glanced at him as if he had done so unintentionally. He then spoke to the old man through the Voice Transmission.
“You’re not afraid of that Gold-Devouring Organization even without my advice… It’s just me, an old man who should mind my own business,” the old man replied through the Voice Transmission, his tone almost a sigh.
“Stop joking, Senior! I’ll remember your kindness,” Duan Ling Tian replied through the Voice Transmission sincerely.
Time passed by quietly.
Very soon, half a month passed by.
During that period, people from the Gold-Devouring Organization seemed to have disappeared completely. The people at the Ruo Shui Riverside were more relaxed now and they began to talk to one another.
“The swift boat’s here!” An exclaim was heard, startling everyone.
“A swift boat?” Duan Ling Tian proceeded to shut his eyes to conserve his energy as he stood there, showing no interest in what he had just heard.
However, Feng Tian Wu and Xiong Quan were completely attracted to what they were seeing.
