Translator: EndlessFantasy Translation Editor: EndlessFantasy Translation
“What?!” Upon hearing the report from the Ling Tian Sect disciple, Duan Ling Tian’s face changed instantly.
Killed the disciples of his Ling Tian Sect?
Who was it that was so bold!?
“No matter who it was, they must pay the price for touching my people!” Duan Ling Tian took a deep breath as unconcealable cold flashes glinted in his eyes.
“Where are they?” Duan Ling Tian looked at the disciple before him and asked in a deep voice.
The disciple felt the anger radiating from the Sect Leader. He did not dare to delay and hurriedly replied, “The north side.”
The minute he finished his sentence, he felt a breeze on his face and then the person who stood in front of him had gone entirely out of sight.
Duan Ling Tian was angered. He was completely enraged!
Now, he was the Sect Leader of the Ling Tian Sect, and someone was killing his people. In fact, they were killing his Ling Tian Sect disciples. That was undoubtedly the equivalent to slapping him in his face and embarrassing him.
“I have to see who’s so bold as to do this!” Duan Ling Tian appeared as calm as water, but his killing intent surged as he murmured as if it would pierce through the boundless skies.
On his way, a few persons met Duan Ling Tian and followed behind him, including a group of Ling Tian Sect elders led by Luo Ping and the You brothers.
Noticing that Duan Ling Tian kept silent, they knew that their Sect Leader was enraged.
“Master.” Soon, Xiong Quan and the Gold Thug arrived. A woman in red who looked like an elf draped in fire came along with them. After her appearance, everything around her seemed to be eclipsed by her beauty.
As soon as she appeared, she landed beside Duan Ling Tian and walked alongside with him.
Currently, Feng Tian Wu was the only person in Ling Tian Sect who dared to walk alongside Duan Ling Tian.
Shortly after, more greetings were heard. It was a dozen middle-aged and old men flying towards them. A middle-aged man led them, and they all then followed behind Duan Ling Tian.
The middle-aged leader was Zhang San. As for the rest, they were the grade one weapons craftsmen and alchemists who had recently joined the Ling Tian Sect.
However, Duan Ling Tian was not affected by the appearance of Zhang San and the rest.
His sharp gaze was staring straight ahead. Even though there were no emotions on his face, the people present still felt a chilling aura emanating from his body.
“I don’t know who’s so bold to dare break into our Ling Tian Sect.”
“And they killed our Ling Tian Sect disciples! I want them to come before me and never be able to leave!”
Many Ling Tian Sect elders could not suppress the anger in their hearts and vented their fury with a growl.
They had rushed over when they heard that someone had broken into the Ling Tian Sect and killed the patrolling disciples.
“There!” Suddenly, a Ling Tian Sect elder craned his neck and shouted.
In the distance, a crowd appeared in their line of sight. Most of them were Ling Tian Sect disciples. They had furiously surrounded a dozen people. Some of them clenched both their fists and trembled in agitation.
More accurately, they were surrounding a mix of twelve middle-aged and old men. Six people formed the frontline, and the other six followed closely behind.
“It’s him!” At that time, the five people behind Zhang San frowned while their eyes were trained on five of the six leading individuals respectively. They seemed to know these people.
“Do you guys know them?” Zhang San asked as his face turned grave while he pivoted to look at the five grade one weapons craftsmen and alchemists behind him.
“I know that person. He’s the Sect Leader of Fly Frost Sect which I was previously in. Behind him is the highest elder of Fly Frost Sect,” a grade one alchemist said.
“I know that person too. He was the Sect Leader of Silver Feather Sect from which I was in. Behind him is the Guardian Elder of Silver Feather Sect,” another grade one weapons craftsman said.
Apart from the both of them, the other three individuals gave a similar answer.
Ten out of the twelve persons were people whom they knew and had interacted with.
“It seems like they’re unwilling to accept your departure… Are they coming to fight for you at our Ling Tian Sect?”
After learning the identity of ten of out the twelve persons from the five of them, Zhang San naturally guessed their intentions for coming and could not help but sneer. “They don’t have the capabilities to make others stay but dared to come to ask for it at the Ling Tian Sect. They seem to think the Ling Tian Sect is an easy target!”
At once, everyone who followed behind Duan Ling Tian understood the intentions of the dozen.
“Do they not think it was humiliating enough? They still dare to come and ask for these people from the Ling Tian Sect?” Many Ling Tian Sect elders snickered.
“Who knows the other two of them?” Zhang San asked the remaining grade one weapons craftsmen and alchemists, but he did not get an answer.
“Maybe, the grade one weapons craftsmen or alchemists from their force haven’t reached the Ling Tian Sect after they left their force,” someone guessed.
“That must be it.” Many people agreed.
Duan Ling Tian heard all the chatter around him and his eyes became colder as was the sneer on his lips.
The arrival of Duan Ling Tian and his crew quickly caught the attention of the Ling Tian Sect disciples.
They looked at Duan Ling Tian in excitement. While they bowed and greeted him respectfully, there was almost blind worship in their eyes.
During this time, with the group of grade one weapons craftsmen and alchemists joining the Ling Tian Sect, the Ling Tian Sect elders and most of the outstanding disciples managed to obtain grade one spirit weapons.
Besides, all of them had, more or less, some grade one pills in their hands.
Although it was only an ordinary grade one spirit weapon or grade one pills from the grade one weapons craftsman and alchemists who had just joined the Ling Tian Sect, it was sufficient to inspire them.
That was treatment they did not dare to dream about in the previous Yin Yang Sect. Now, they got to enjoy such ways!
All of that was attributed to the Ling Tian Sect and their Sect Leader, Duan Ling Tian.
For that reason, they respected the Sect Leader of the Ling Tian Sect from the bottom of their hearts and even regarded him as their idol.
“Mmm.” Duan Ling Tian forced a smile and nodded in response when he looked at the group of Ling Tian Sect disciples.
However, when he led the group of people behind him and confronted the twelve persons in the encirclement, his smile disappeared. It was replaced by icy-cold frost instead.
One old man in a black robe among the six leading people in the opposing party stared at Duan Ling Tian with a cold face and asked condescendingly, “Are you the Sect Leader of the Ling Tian Sect, Duan Ling Tian?”
However, Duan Ling Tian ignored him.
His gaze swept past the faces of the six leading people. Then it swept past the other six behind them as if he was observing something.
“Four Ninth Level Martial Monarch stage?” Duan Ling Tian lifted his eyebrows; he knew the score in his heart.
Earlier, he seemed to be glancing at the dozen people in front of him, but actually, he was exploring their strengths with his spiritual energy.
He found out that there were four Ninth Level Martial Monarch stage martial artists among the posse in front of him.
As for the remaining eight, they were not weak either; they were all on the Eighth Level Martial Monarch stage.
“I asked you something. Didn’t you hear me?” The old man in the black robe instantly flew into a rage and yelled at Duan Ling Tian when he saw him ignoring him, and he noticed the mocking gaze from his surroundings.
Duan Ling Tian kept on ignoring the old man in the black robe.
To be precise, it was as if he did not hear the old man in the black robe at all.
“Sect Leader Mo.” However, this time an elderly man behind Zhang San stepped forward to stand alongside Zhang San and looked at the old man in the black robe.
“I left the Thousand Feet Sect purely on my own will. It was my choice, and there was nothing to do with the Ling Tian Sect… Besides, when I left, didn’t Sect Leader Mo say that we parted on good terms?” The old man’s face turned gloomy as he said. He seemed to feel that he had been deceived.
“Hmph!” However, the old man in the black robe just snorted when he was faced with this elderly. It seemed like he disdained to talk nonsense with him.
He had struck an agreement with the leaders of the other five most substantial first-rate forces.
After destroying the Ling Tian Sect, they would not treat these grade one weapons craftsmen and alchemist as kindly and generously as they had in the past.
They would force them to swear an oath with the Nine-Nine Heavenly Tribulation to never betray the forces they were in, or they would be killed by heavenly tribulation.
In the past, grade one weapons craftsmen and alchemists were extremely rare. They did not dare to do so because they were afraid of encountering those with a strong character, but things were different today.
There were nearly twenty grade one weapons craftsmen and alchemists in the Ling Tian Sect. Even if there were a dozen with strong characters who would rather die, the remaining ones would be enough for all of them.
Hence, they were not worried that they could not recover their losses after destroying the Ling Tian Sect.
For that reason, the old man in the black robe, who was also the Sect Leader of the Thousand Feet Sect, seemed cold and even retrograde to the grade one weapons craftsmen whom he used to treat warmly.
Duan Ling Tian finally opened his mouth, but he did not answer the old man in a black robe. Instead, he asked a question in a deep voice, “Did all twelve of you come due to the grade one weapons craftsmen and alchemists who left your respective forces?”
As Duan Ling Tian finished his sentence, a middle-aged man in fine clothes, who was among the six leading persons, said coolly, “The five Sect Leaders beside me came for that… But I didn’t!”
Duan Ling Tian’s eye landed on the well-dressed man in fine clothes. From the beginning, he had realized the difference in this person. He had shown his endless hatred from the moment he saw Duan Ling Tian.
“Sect Leader of the True Martial Sect?” Duan Ling Tian squinted his eyes and asked tentatively.
“That’s right! I’m True Martial Sect’s Sect Leader, Wu Lie. Today, I’ll kill both of you to avenge both of my dead sons.” Wu Lie looked at Duan Ling Tian, and Feng Tian Wu with a cold glint in his eyes as a chilling killing intent spread from his body.
