Chapter 1196: Yun Gang’s Confidence
Translator: EndlessFantasy Translation Editor: EndlessFantasy Translation
The black-clad young man standing in front of Yang Chun was none other than one of the few direct disciples under Martial Emperor Shi Qi’s command.
“What?” Zhou Yi’s face remained aloof. His voice was calm, and he was extremely taciturn.
“Senior Brother Zhou, I’m afraid I’ll have to put aside the matter that you entrusted me for the time being.” Yang Chun smiled wryly.
“Oh?” The moment Zhou Yi heard this, a frown appeared on his face. “What’s wrong?”
“Senior Brother Zhou, someone came to the outside of the stone forest earlier. He was my younger brother’s follower. The reason he came to find me is to deliver the news that my young brother is killed.” Yang Chun sighed. “My brother’s killer may leave at any given moment so I need to go there as soon as possible to kill him and avenge my brother! Please agree to my request, Senior Brother Zhou!”
When he reached the end of his sentence, Yang Chun looked at Zhou Yi in anticipation.
“You must not delay in avenging the death of your brother… Go then! Just leave this matter until you come back,” Zhou Yi replied indifferently.
After his words left his mouth, he disappeared from Yang Chun’s eyes without a trace. His speed was so fast that even someone as strong as Yang Chun could not catch his movement.
“Thank you, Senior Brother Zhou.” Yang Chun thanked the stone house in front before he left to meet Yun Gang.
The moment he turned around, his face turned grave instantly.
“Ling Tian Sect, Duan Ling Tian!” At the same time, a killing intent could be seen his eyes that were gleaming coldly.
Almost two months had passed in just a blink of an eye.
During this period of time, Duan Ling Tian did not cultivate nor comprehend any Profundity. Instead, he focused on teaching the group of grade one weapons craftsmen and alchemists, including Zhang San.
In this period of time, the group of grade one weapons craftsmen and alchemists, including Zhang San, had an even better understanding of just how monstrous the Sect Leader of Ling Tain Sect’s weapons and medicine refining techniques were.
They were too lacking compared to him.
When Duan Ling Tian parted ways with Zhang San and the others, one of the grade one alchemists exclaimed excitedly, “Looks like I made the right choice coming here. Joining the Ling Tian Sect will let me achieve the things I want. I have a feeling I’ll be able to refine grade one pills with close to 80% Purity soon.”
“That’s right! This is the best decision we’ve made in our lives!” Somebody added.
“Hurmph! Now that you guys obtained some benefits, you better don’t forget to do your work for the Sect Leader. Remember to use all of your connections and search for the Sec Leader’s two misses who are wandering outside,” Zhang San reminded them with a growl.
“Rest assured, Vice Sect Leader Zhang. I’ve already given the sect’s disciples my token of authentication to look for all the senior officials of the sects that have a close relationship with me. They will not dare to be negligent for my sake,” a grade one weapons craftsman chimed in.
“I’ll also find a disciple and ask him to look for those who are indebted to me on my behalf. If those people don’t do their utmost in finding the Sect Leader’s two misses, they can forget about getting grade one pills from me in the future!” Another grade one alchemist said before he left.
More people left in the next moment.
Zhang San nodded his head in satisfaction when he saw this.
He did not let the Sect Leader down after all.
Just some time ago, Duan Ling Tian had made Zhang San the fourth Vice Sect Leader of Ling Tian Sect and announced it to the sect. He had the same status as Luo Ping and the You Brothers.
Naturally, they only had the same status on the surface.
As someone who led the grade one weapons craftsmen and alchemists in the sect, Zhang San’s position in the Ling Tian Sect was just below Duan Ling Tian alone.
Even Luo Ping and the You Brothers dared not pick a fight with him at all.
After parting ways with Zhang San and the others, Duan Ling Tian returned to his own place and sat cross-legged on the bed. He made up his mind as he muttered to himself, “I’ll leave three days later to retrieve the great treasure left behind by the Rebirth Martial Emperor during his second reincarnation.”
After coming to the Inner Land, he roughly knew where his location was now.
After ransacking the Rebirth Martial Emperor’s memory, he was able to confirm the exact location of the place where the Rebirth Martial Emperor stored his great treasure. It was at the southern part of the Inner Land. It was quite a long way from the Ling Tian Sect.
‘I’m afraid it’ll take me two months to reach that place and come back even if I use my full speed,’ Duan Ling Tian thought to himself.
Now that Duan Ling Tian had already made up his mind, he no longer thought about other things. He closed his eyes and calmed his heart to cultivate.
Nine Dragons War Sovereign Technique — Divine Dragon Form!
While cultivating, he comprehended his Fused Profundity at the same time.
Naturally, he also continued to comprehend the Sword Dao contained in the word ‘Sword’ that he memorized so that he could raise his Sword Concept.
Time continued to pass by soundlessly,
Two days passed in just a blink of an eye.
“Duan Ling Tian, show your face!” The Ling Tian Sect that was originally tranquil was suddenly in an uproar the moment this voice reverberated from the sky.
“Who is so daring to demand the Sect Leader to show his face?” Many Ling Tian Sect’s disciples were in shock.
“Is he looking for death? How dare he comes to our Ling Tian Sect to provoke the Sect Leader.”
“I wonder where this guy who doesn’t treasure his own life came from?”
One by one, the Ling Tian Sect’s elders and disciples rose up into the sky and looked in the direction of the voice. However, all they saw was fog covering the sky. It was obvious the owner of the voice was hiding behind the fog.
Whoosh! Whoosh! Whoosh!
A few figures appeared out of thin air in the sky.
The four great Vice Sect Leaders of Ling Tian Sect as well as Feng Tian Wu, Chen Shao Shuai, Xiong Quan, and Gold Thug gathered together due to the loud bellow that came from the sky.
“This voice seems kind of familiar,” Luo Ping said, frowning.
“Familiar?” Chen Shao Shuai was stunned. “Don’t tell me you know him?”
At this moment, the You Brothers exchanged glances with each other before exclaiming in unison, “It’s the voice of Elder Yun!” Their voices were filled with astonishment.
“Elder Yun?” Upon hearing the You Brothers’ words, Chen Shao Shuai was confused.
“It’s Yun Gang, the Guardian Elder of the former Yang Peak.” Luo Ping had a slightly awkward expression on her face. “Didn’t he run away previously? Why did he come back again?”
“Luo Ping, you better watch your words! I didn’t run away!” Almost as soon as Luo Ping’s words left her mouth, the voice in the sky continued to speak and caught everyone’s attention.
All they saw was an old man following behind a middle-aged man as they descended. The person who was talking was none other than the old man behind that middle-aged man — Yun Gang, the Guardian Elder of the former Yin Yang Sect’s Yang Peak.
As for the middle-aged man in front of him, his identity was obvious — it was Yang Chun, the elder blood brother of Yang Hong, the Peak Master of the former Yin Yang Sect’s Yang Peak.
Apart from that, Yang Chun was also a disciple of a very powerful Martial Emperor. Although he was not as good as the Martial Emperor’s direct disciples, ordinary Ninth Level Martial Monarchs still could not compare to him.
“Yun Gang!” Luo Ping’s face turned grave. Her gaze landed on Yun Gang for a while before it shifted to the middle-aged man in front of Yun Gang.
Needless to say, she could see that Yun Gang had come prepared. It was obvious that the middle-aged man standing in front was his backup. He had to be stronger than Yun Gang.
At this moment, the You Brothers’ faces turned a little grave as well.
They could see that Yun Gang and the middle-aged man in front of him came with bad intentions.
“It’s Elder Yun!”
“Didn’t he flee previously? Why is he back now? Isn’t he afraid of dying?”
“Didn’t you see the middle-aged man he’s following from behind? Do you think someone who can make him follow obediently is an ordinary person?”
“Looks like he found some help!”
Many Ling Tian Sect’s elders and disciples who recognized Yun Gang buried their heads together in discussion.
Some of them looked worried. They were worried their Sect Leader would not be able to defeat the man that Yun Gang brought to the sect. On the contrary, some of them looked indifferent. They had absolute faith in their Sect Leader.
Yun Gang looked at Luo Ping, You Ping, and You An before he bluntly asked, “Luo Ping, You Ping, You An… The reason I came back this time is to kill Duan Ling Tian and rebuild the Yin Yang Sect! Will all of you help me?”
Upon hearing his words, the three of them turned even more grave. However, they did not say anything in reply.
“It seems like all of you doubt my strength.” Yun Gang stared at them before he continued unhurriedly, “I admit I’m no match for that Duan Ling Tian. However, do any of you know who’s standing in front of me?”
When he reached the end of his sentence, confidence oozed out of his body.
For a moment, apart from Luo Ping and the other two, even Feng Tian Wu, Zhang San, and the others shifted their eyes to the middle-aged man in front of Yun Gang. It was as though they were trying to see what made Yun Gang trust him so much.
“You’re Supreme Elder Yun Gang of the former Yin Yang Sect’s Yang Peak?” Chen Shao Shuai looked at Yun Gang contemptuously. “Somebody mentioned you before. Several months back, you fled from our Ling Tian Sect like a disowned dog, didn’t you?’
Chen Shao Shuai’s words caused Yun Gang’s face to turn grave.
“I wonder where did this disowned dog’s confidence come from…” It was apparent Chen Shao Shuai was not going to stop as he continued to mock him.
Although Yun Gang was absolutely infuriated, he still suppressed the flame of wrath in his heart as he warned in a deep voice, “Lad, don’t be so haughty. You’re going to cry later!”
Then, he ignored Chen Shao Shuai who was looking at him with disdain and looked at Luo Ping and the other two again before he announced, “This person in front of me is Lord Yang Chun, the elder blood brother of Peak Master Yang Hong.”
Yang Hong’s blood brother?
Upon hearing this, the three of their faces sank immediately.
Naturally, they were familiar with the name Yang Hong. He was the Peak Master of the former Yin Yang Sect’s Yang Peak.
However, they did not know that Yang Hong had an elder brother, and it was obvious that he was much powerful than Yang Hong. He seemed to be a Ninth Level Martial Monarch.
However, even if they had a feeling that this man was a Ninth Level Martial Monarch, there were no hints of terror in their eyes at all.
What a joke!
Their Sect Leader, Duan Ling Tian, was someone who had killed several Ninth Level Martial Monarchs previously.
Put aside the grand elder of Zhou Clan in Ataraxia City, and take the four leaders of the lower-middle level first-rate forces for example, even they died by Sect Leader’s hands.
In their opinion, their Sect Leader of Ling Tian Sect, Duan Ling Tian, possessed strength that was on par with the top powerhouses from the first-rate forces at the middle level or even the upper-middle level.
