After that, You Ping explained what happened later.
He did not even miss out the part where Yang Hong, the Peak Master of Yang Peak had personally admitted to breaking into the forbidden area of Yin Peak and killed the Peak Master and Vice Peak Master of Yin Peak.
Upon hearing that, everyone present including the male disciples of Yang Peak gasped.
They never thought that their Peak Master of Yang Peak, Yang Hong, had been so ambitious. He even wanted to be the first Sect Leader of the Yin Yang Sect within hundreds of years!
For that, he even took advantage and killed the two most influential persons of Yin Peak when they were in closed-door cultivation to heal their injuries!
Doing so was the equivalent to destroying the pillars that held up Yin Peak.
“He’s heartless and mad! He’s absolutely heartless and mad!” All of the disciples of Yin Peak were enraged when they learned that Yang Hong had killed two of their Peak Masters for his own gains.
“Senior Sister!” Luo Ping trembled as her eyes became bloodshot instantly. She disappeared in the next moment, apparently headed to verify the truth at the forbidden area of Yin Peak.
“That’s unfortunate for Senior Sister Yang Xue… Yang Hong killed her just like that.”
“Senior Sister Yang Xue was so outstanding, yet she ended up dead. What a pity!”
Without knowing when, one after another, the gazes of the female disciples of Yin Peak flew past Duan Ling Tian and landed behind him in Xiong Quan’s arms.
There was a woman clad in white, who had been dead for a while, in Xiong Quan’s arms.
The woman had a whole head of white hair that was whiter than snow, but her white robe was mostly stained by blood which made it glaring and heart-stopping.
It was Yang Xue!
“I didn’t expect that the Peak Master could bear to kill someone as pitiful as Senior Sister Yang Xue,” one of the Yang Peak male disciple’s said indignantly.
“You still call him Peak Master now? If I had to say something, that Yang Hong was an animal! Like father like son, his son was also an animal.”
“Right! Both of them, father and son, were animals!” Many of the male disciples of Yang Peak also insisted indignantly.
Yang Xue was the strongest person among the younger generation of Yin Peak. She was considered the dream lover of all of the Yang Peak male disciples with her shocking innate talent and comprehension in addition to her drop-dead gorgeous face.
Now, they were naturally incensed when they learned that Yang Hong had killed their dream lover.
Shortly after, Luo Ping returned, catching everyone’s attention right away.
At once, the scene became silent.
“Thank you.” Although there was grief on Luo Ping’s face, when she looked at Duan Ling Tian to bow and thank him, her tone was filled with sincerity.
She thanked Duan Ling Tian for avenging Yin Peak as well as for avenging her Senior Sister and Junior Niece.
Witnessing Luo Ping’s actions, everyone knew that everything You Ping said was true. None of it was false.
Everyone’s tempers rose.
At that time, You Ping looked at Duan Ling Tian and introduced Luo Ping, “Vice Peak Master Luo was the Junior Sister of Yang Xue’s master.”
“Oh, so she turns out to be a Junior Uncle.” Duan Ling Tian’s eyes gleamed as he nodded at Luo Ping.
Yang Xue’s master was also master to Ke’Er and Li Fei.
As such, that elegant woman before him was also Ke’Er and Li Fei’s Junior Uncle.
He was the fiancé of the both of them, so naturally, he had to address her as the both of them did, which was Junior Uncle.
“The four strongest powerhouses of Yin Yang Sect are all gone apart from Elder Yun… I believe that everyone can guess the crisis the Yin Yang Sect faces subsequently,” You Ping continued speaking with a dignified expression, “For that reason, Elder Yun, You An, and I have brazenly asked this one to be the Sect Leader of our Yin Yang Sect!” Having said that, You Ping turned to Duan Ling Tian.
At once, Duan Ling Tian became the center of attention again.
Then, everyone present also came to their senses and understood why Elder Yun and both the Vice Peak Masters of the Yang Peak had addressed Duan Ling Tian as Sect Leader.
“Luo Ping, Vice Peak Master of Yin Peak. Greetings to you, Sect Leader.” Luo Ping bowed at Duan Ling Tian again, but this time it was not to thank him. It was to honor Duan Ling Tian as Sect Leader.
In addition to being a powerhouse that could kill Yang Hong and protect the Yin Yang Sect, Duan Ling Tian was also the fiancé of both her Junior Nieces.
Compared to Elder Yun and both the Vice Peak Masters of the Yang Peak, her relationship with Duan Ling Tian was closer.
Therefore, she naturally would not reject Duan Ling Tian as the Sect Leader of the Yin Yang Sect.
“Greetings…” Just as the rest of the Elders and disciples of Yin Peak and Yang Peak were prepared to honor Duan Ling Tian as the Sect Leader, Duan Ling Tian interrupted them, “Wait a minute!”
They looked puzzled. In fact, Luo Ping was also surprised. She did not know what Duan Ling Tian wanted to do.
Only Yun Gang and the You brothers were as calm as before. They could already guess what Duan Ling Tian wanted to say next.
“You can honor me as your Sect Leader. However, I must tell you something first.”
“That’s… After I become the Sect Leader of the Yin Yang Sect, the sect will be renamed as the Ling Tian Sect! This means that the Yin Yang Sect will no longer exist,” Duan Ling Tian explained to the crowd in front of him. “Those who can’t accept it may leave now. Ling Tian Sect won’t make you stay forcefully.”
Renaming the sect!
There was an uproar.
“The Yin Yang Sect will be renamed?”
“It’s okay to rename it… In fact, I think the new sect name sounds better! It’s more domineering!”
“I thought so too… Ling Tian Sect… Ling Tian as in riding above the heavens!”
Soon, apart from some hesitation from the Elders of Yin Peak and Yang Peak, the two groups of disciples were discussing among themselves, and they felt satisfied with the new name.
Unlike those Elders from Yin Peak and Yang Peak who had been in the Yin Yang Sect for many and had deep sentiments for the Yin Yang Sect, those disciples were relatively new to the sect and did not have as much affection for it. They only cared about whether they belonged to a first-rate force or not. They did not care what the sect was called.
However, the hesitant Elders eventually compromised because neither Elder Yun and the Vice Peak Masters of Yang Peak nor the Vice Peak Master of Yin Peak objected to it.
Compared to the four of them, they were nothing.
“Since no one objects… Then, from now on, I, Duan Ling Tian, will be the First Sect Leader of the Ling Tian Sect! From today onwards, Yin Peak will be renamed as Ling Tian Peak,” Duan Ling Tian announced loudly in an imposing manner which reverberated through the skies as his voice spread in all directions.
“Sect Leader.” At that second, all of the Ling Tian Sect disciples respectfully bowed and greeted Duan Ling Tian. The atmosphere on the summit was crowded and imposing.
Seeing the crowd before him, Duan Ling Tian clearly knew that he had a responsibility as heavy as a mountain towards them from now on.
Nevertheless, from now on, he was no longer alone.
“Sect Leader,” You Ping looked at Duan Ling Tian and asked respectfully, “Now that Yang Peak is destroyed, what do you intend to do with us from Yang Peak?”
While You Ping spoke, the group of Elders and disciples who was originally from Yang Peak looked at Duan Ling Tian with a burning gaze.
Even those from Yin Peak also studied Duan Ling Tian. They were somewhat anxious, afraid that those from Yang Peak would take over their place for cultivation.
“I’ve examined the place when I came over… Only half of Ling Tian Peak is developed as a place for cultivation for the female disciples, isn’t it?” Under those watchful eyes, Duan Ling Tian spoke slowly. As he said, he turned to Luo Ping.
“Yes, Sect Leader,” Luo Ping answered respectfully. Then, she explained, “Ling Tian Peak was covered in snow all year round, but the place for cultivation on our side still fared alright. It’s on the southern side and isn’t affected by the cold wind… It’s freezing on the north side since it’s affected by the cold wind year after year.”
“Mmm.” Duan Ling Tian nodded. “I noticed that when I came.”
“For that reason… I’ll announce to you guys!” Duan Ling Tian’s sight glided across the Elders and disciples of Ling Tian Sect as he said slowly, “Those who were from Yin Peak, stay. Their place for cultivating will be the same.”
After Duan Ling Tian said that, the group of Yin Peak Elders and disciples smiled whereas the faces of Yang Peak Elders and disciples changed.
“Those from Yang Peak will head to the northern side and open a new place for cultivation,” Duan Ling Tian continued.
“Sect Leader!” You An said with furrowed brows, “The northern side of Ling Tian Peak will be affected by the cold wind all year long. Even if we open a new place for cultivation, it’ll be hard to cultivate there peacefully because of the cold wind.”
“That’s right, Sect Leader.” A group of Yang Peak Elders and disciples nodded respectively.
“What if I can solve the problem you’ve just mentioned?” Ignoring the cloudy expression on the faces of the Yang Peak Elders and disciples, Duan Ling Tian looked at You An and asked.
“Solve?” You An could not react in that split second.
“I can set up a large-scale Inscription Formation that covers the northern side of Ling Tian Peak to defend us from all of the cold wind,” Duan Ling Tian said calmly.
After Duan Ling Tian said that, it rocked the boat even further and caused an uproar.
An Inscription Formation to defend the cold wind on Ling Tian Peak’s northern side?
Could one even set up an Inscription Formation like that?
They were very doubtful about it.
There was no shortage of Inscription Masters amongst them, but no one had ever heard of an Inscription Formation with such exaggerated capabilities.
“Now, you, Yun Gang, and You Ping shall bring those from Yang Peak to the northern side of Ling Tian Peak and open a new place for cultivation… I’ll take, at the most, three days to complete that Inscription Formation,” Duan Ling Tian looked at You An and said.
The senior officials of Yang Peak still brought the group of people from Yang Peak over to the northern side of Ling Tian Peak even though they were doubtful about Duan Ling Tian’s promise.
What they had to do was to open new places for cultivation on the hillside.
“I don’t know if the Sect Leader can really set up an Inscription Formation like that.”
“An Inscription Formation which covers half of Ling Tian Peak… It feels outrageous even just thinking about it! However, the Sect Leader doesn’t seem to be lying judging from the expression he had when he spoke about it.”
“We’ll know if he’s lying or not in three days.”
The original Yang Peak Elders and disciples were discussing among themselves as they followed Yun Gang and the two others. They only hoped that the next three days would pass quickly.
“Vice Peak Master Luo, stay. The others, please disperse.” Duan Ling Tian looked and gave his instruction to the group of female Elders and disciples.
