Chapter 1159: A Handsome Reward
Translator: EndlessFantasy Translation Editor: EndlessFantasy Translation
Elder Yun or Yung Gang was the Guardian Elder of the former Yang Peak.
“When did you notice that he’s gone?” Duan Ling Tian was calm and asked in a collected manner.
“Three days ago, you told Elder Yun and us to bring the people to the northern side of Ling Tian Peak to dig a place for cultivation, so we were temporarily separated from him. Now that we come to think about it, that was the last time we ever saw him,” You Ping replied, “Early this morning, I went to ask the elders and disciples who were with Elder Yun and they said that after Elder Yun brought them to part ways with us three days ago, he left by himself alone.”
“We ran a search at the entire Ling Tian Peak early this morning, but we couldn’t see any trace of Elder Yun at all!” You An added.
“If I’m not mistaken, he must’ve left three days ago… He left Ling Tian Peak, the Ling Tian Sect!” A brilliant gleam flashed across Duan Ling Tian’s eyes as he continued to ask, “Do you know what relationship Yun Gang has with Yang Hong?”
“Yang Hong was the direct disciple of the previous the Peak Master of Yang Peak while Yun Gang was the Junior Brother of the previous the Peak Master of Yang Peak… Yang Hong called Yun Gang ‘Senior Uncle’,” You Ping answered.
Duan Ling Tian nodded. “It looks like he has never planned to stay from the very beginning. He kept obeying me, only to make me lower my vigilance down. He’s already been planning to leave a long time ago.”
“Sect Leader, what should we do then? If Yun Gang really left, would it be disadvantageous to our Ling Tian Peak?” You An asked.
“Him? He’s not that capable!” Duan Ling Tian narrowed his eyes, and a chilly gleam flashed across them.
“He must have left three days ago. It’s too late to chase after him now. You two, follow me to the northern side of Ling Tian Peak.” The moment these words left Duan Ling Tian’s mouth, he vanished straightaway.
When he reappeared again, he was already far away.
The You Brothers reacted immediately and followed suit right away.
“I’ll go have a look too.” Right at this moment, Xiong Quan had also walked out of a wooden house from the middle of the hillside not far away and followed them as well. “Young Master must be going to set up the large-scale Inscription Formation now.”
Just as Xiong Quan made his move, another two figures vanished from two directions and followed suit.
It was a woman in a red dress and a golden-clad old man. They were none other than Feng Tian Wu and the Gold Thug.
By the time Duan Ling Tian reached the northern side of Ling Tian Peak once again, he had noticed that it was already filled with many people. These people were the elders and disciples of Yang Peak of the former Yin Yang Sect.
“Sect Leader is here!”
The news of Duan Ling Tian arriving soon spread out among those who stood close to him.
In just a moment, those people who were waiting by the entire northern side of Ling Tian Peak flew towards him. In dense black clouds, they bowed from afar towards the purple-colored figure not far away.
Almost everybody from the Yang Peak of the former Yin Yang Sect, except for Yun Gang, was now fully gathered here.
Whoosh! Whoosh! Whoosh!
Aside from the You Brothers standing behind him, three people soon appeared behind Duan Ling Tian. They were Feng Tian Wu, Xiong Quan, and the Gold Thug who had followed.
Whoosh! Whoosh! Whoosh! Whoosh! Whoosh!
A series of whistling wind reverberated, attracting the attention of everyone present on the scene.
A group of women dressed in white could be seen flying towards there from the southern side of the Ling Tian Peak. It was apparent that there were here to join in the fun.
These women were the disciples from the former Yin Peak of the former Yin Yang Sect.
“Sect Leader!” Even Luo Ping, the Vice Peak Master of Yin Peak of the former Yin Yang Sect had now come. After respectfully greeting Duan Ling Tian, she stood behind him.
A series of piercingly chilly winds continued to blow across, making the robes on everybody’s body, including Duan Ling Tian, flutter loudly. Some people who had lower cultivation base squinted from the strong gales.
“I won’t beat around the bush at all,” Duan Ling Tian cast a glance at the dense black crowds and announced in a loud voice with a solemn expression. “Today, I’m going to fulfill the promise I made three days ago and not let the northern side of Ling Tian Peak suffer from the invasion from the cold wind any longer!”
“Fulfill the promise!”
The moment these words left Duan Ling Tian’s mouth, everybody’s eyes lit up with an anticipating look on their faces. They wanted to see how this young Sect Leader of the Ling Tian Sect would set up that extremely far-fetched, large-scale Inscription Formation that he had mentioned.
Unfortunately, they were destined never be able to see it.
As Duan Ling Tian raised a hand, a finger flicked out. Right away, a piece of high-grade Origin Stone shot out and fell into the mountain wall at the northern side of Ling Tian Peak before it vanished without a trace.
Almost when the high-grade Origin Stone disappeared, all the crowd could hear was a gentle sound reverberating by their ears. The voice was not loud, but it seemed as though it trembled their spirits for a moment.
“T-This… This…” The next instance, under the stunned gaze of the crowds of the elders and disciples of Ling Tian Peak, a layer of translucent light shield seemed to rise up from the inside of the mountain wall of the northern side and kept inflating outwards continuously.
The place where the light shield went past pushed the piercing cold chill wind that blew from the northern side away.
The light shield continued to expand. It was only until the light shield had covered the entire wall mountain of Ling Tian Peak’s northern side that it finally stopped. At the same time, it vanished before everyone’s eyes as though it had never once appeared before.
However, at the isolation line where the translucent light shield disappeared, the chill wind that came from the north had been wholly kept away. It could no longer make its way inside.
At once, along with the disappearance of the chill wind, everyone’s robes, including Duan Ling Tian’s, stopped fluttering.
“I-is this even possible?”
“Is this the large-scale Inscription Formation that Sect Leader mentioned three days ago? When did he set all these up?”
“Yesterday, many people saw the Sect Leader wandering around over here. He seemed to be throwing something that went through the mountain walls repeatedly, and they were all embedded in the mountain… Come to think of it, he must’ve been setting up the Inscription Formation that time!”
“Y-Yesterday? T-Then, are you saying that it only took Sect Leader one day to set up such a large-scale Inscription Formation?”
The group of Ling Tian Sect disciples was completely taken aback by astonishment. Soon, they realized another problem.
Their Sect Leader had only taken a day to set up such a large-scale Inscription Formation.
“Looks like not only is he a Martial Dao powerhouse, our Sect Leader is also an extraordinary Inscription Master as well,” many Ling Tian Sect disciples exclaimed in surprise.
The young female disciples’ eyes had practically formed a heart shape now as they started to ogle Duan Ling Tian secretly.
“Hmph!” However, as an extremely cold snort sounded in the air, chills ran down their spines at once. Hastily, they lowered their heads and they no longer dared to look at him.
It was none other than Feng Tian Wu, who was standing behind Duan Ling Tian, who had snorted just now. With a cold expression, she swept a glance at this group of young disciples.
As she was snorting, the aura of a Martial Monarch swept out and pressed the group of young disciples so firmly that they did not even dare to lift their heads.
The actions of Feng Tian Wu now was like trying to tell everybody that she was the one who had absolute sovereign rights over Duan Ling Tian.
“I-is she Mrs. Sect Leader?”
“I think so. Otherwise, she wouldn’t be so pissed at us looking at the Sect Leader.”
“Mrs. Sect Leader is quite powerful herself. It looks like we can only sigh at the sight of Sect Leader next time.”
The group of young female disciples whispered among themselves secretly.
Though their voices were not particularly loud, most of the people present on the scene were people with high attainment. For this reason, they had amazing hearing abilities and without missing anything at all, they could hear the whispers of these girls clearly.
“Mrs. Sect Leader?” At once, most of the people on the scene immediately shifted their attention to Feng Tian Wu, making her the spotlight of the crowd now.
Just now, when Feng Tian Wu had heard the words of the group of young female disciples, her face was already burning slightly, but now, being the center of attention of so many people, despite maintaining a calm expression as best as possible, her heart was in a turmoil. All that she could think about now was that she was like a lone boat in great billowing waves, in the midst of being turned over anytime soon.
“Sect Leader is really lucky! Be it this Mrs. Sect Leader or the two fiancées of his, all of them are women with unrivaled beauty.”
“Exactly! Sect Leader really lucked out in his love life!”
“If I could be like the Sect Leader, I’d never had any regrets at all in my life!”
Soon, many male disciples looked at Duan Ling Tian again with an envious expression.
“Right now, I’ve fulfilled my promise towards you all, and you also have a new cultivation place now.” After Duan Ling Tian swept a glance at the group of male elders and disciples, he looked towards at the group of female elders and disciples before narrowing his eyes without warning.
“Listen! Ling Tian Sect disciples!” After Duan Ling Tian’s sentence just now that seemed to be hanging halfway had successfully attracted the attention of everyone present, he opened his mouth once again as he bellowed loudly.
For once, everyone who had their attention on Duan Ling Tian suddenly had their hearts tighten inexplicably as they became alert in an instance.
“From today onwards, Luo Ping, You Ping, and You An will become the Vice Sect Leaders for the Ling Tian Sect. The three of them will handle all the usual big and small general affairs of the sect. All of you must listen to their orders!” Duan Ling Tian announced in a loud voice.
“Yes!” the disciples of Ling Tian Sect responded respectfully at once.
“Thank you for your high regard, Sect Leader.” The moment Luo Ping, You Ping and You An heard this, their eyes lit up right away, and they quickly bowed down towards Duan Ling Tian in gratitude.
“Luo Ping, You Ping, You An… From now on, the three of you will be responsible to spread the news out to the public that the Yin Yang Sect has been replaced by Ling Tian Sect and already has a new Sect Master. Spread my name as the Sect Leader out as well.” Duan Ling Tian looked at Luo Ping and the two others before he ordered.
“Yes,” Luo Ping and the two responded respectfully.
“On top of that, within the next few days, send out disciples who can recognize Ke’er and Li Fei and search for their tracks,” Duan Ling Tian ordered again.
“Whichever disciple can trace their tracks will be rewarded with a grade one spirit weapon that has a boost of 90% and a bottle of grade one Life Recovery Pill that has a purity of 90% and above!” After Duan Ling Tian issued his order, he told them the handsome reward.
For a moment, the entire scene went dead silent.
Grade one spirit weapon!
Grade one Life Recovery Pill!
To the ordinary elders and disciples in Ling Tian Sect, there was no doubt that these two items were extremely valuable.
Only the high officials of the sect such as Luo Ping, You Ping, and You An did not lack these. However, they were also limited to ordinary grade one spirit weapons and grade one Life Recovery Pills.
“D-Did I hear it correctly? Did the Sect Leader really mention a grade one spirit weapon that can give a 90% boost in strength?” Eventually, someone seemed to return to his senses as he asked in a slightly awe-struck manner.
