However, Luo Ping and the other two turned pale instantly when they heard the next part of Yun Gang’s sentence.
“Lord Yang Chun has another identity… He’s the Martial Emperor’s disciple from the Lost Stone Forest!” This was Yun Gang’s original words.
A Martial Emperor’s disciple!
The moment these words left Yun Gang’s mouth, apart from Luo Ping and the other two, even Zhang San and Gold Thug turned pale as well.
As for Feng Tian Wu, Chen Shao Shuai, and Xiong Quan, they did not much have much knowledge about a Martial Emperor’s disciple. Due to this reason, they only looked confused instead of having an exaggerated expression like the others.
“The backup Elder Yun brought with him is a Martial Emperor’s disciple?”
“Moreover, it’s the Martial Emperor’s disciple from the Lost Stone Forest! I’ve heard about the Lost Stone Forest before! It’s the cultivation place of a Martial Emperor. That Martial Emperor is known as Martial Emperor Shi Qi!”
“The backup Elder Yun brought is Martial Emperor Shi Qi’s disciple?”
Colors drained from the faces of many Ling Tian Sect’s elders and disciples as well.
It did not cross their minds that the backup Yun Gang brought here would be a Martial Emperor’s disciple.
A Martial Emperor’s disciple.
Although he was not the direct disciple of a Martial Emperor, he was still someone powerful. A weak martial artist would never be able to become a Martial Emperor’s disciple, he could only become a Martial Emperor’s follower at the most.
The Martial Emperor’s direct disciples were usually those who were at the peak of the Martial Monarch Stage and already have one foot in the Martial Emperor Stage.
Although the Martial Emperor’s disciples were slightly more inferior, ordinary Ninth Level Martial Monarchs still could not compare to them.
It was said that all the Martial Emperor’s disciples had strength comparable to the top powerhouses of the upper-middle level and even the upper-level first-rate forces on Cloud Continent.
“A Martial Emperor’s disciple… Yang Hong’s brother is actually a Martial Emperor’s disciple!” Luo Ping’s face was extremely pale.
“I’ve long heard that Peak Master Yang Hong had an impressive background… but I didn’t expect his brother to be a disciple of a Martial Emperor.” The You Brothers exchanged glances, both could see the bewilderment in each other’s eyes.
A Martial Emperor’s disciple was someone they needed to look up to. He could crush them completely with just one finger.
For a moment, their hearts were filled with terror.
If they had confidence in the Sect Leader of Ling Tian Sect, Duan Ling Tian, earlier, then right now their confidence was wavering.
“A Martial Emperor’s disciple… A mere Peak Master of the former Yin Yang Sect’s Yang Peak actually turns out to be the younger blood brother of a Martial Emperor’s disciple.” Zhang San’s face was slightly pale as well.
He had already long heard about how Duan Ling Tian killed the Peak Master of the former Yin Yang Sect’s Yang Peak and became the Sect Leader of Yin Yang Sect after changing its name to Ling Tian Sect.
However, it did not cross his mind that the Peak Master of the former Yin Yang Sect’s Yang Peak would actually have such a blood brother.
A Martial Emperor’s disciple!
That was not a joke at all.
From what he knew, if one wanted to become a Martial Emperor’s disciple, one would either have to be a Variant on the Cloud Continent that had remarkable talent and possessed innate abilities or a powerful Ninth Level Martial Monarch.
It was apparent this middle-aged man in front was the latter.
The requirement for the latter was extremely high too.
It was said that only Ninth Level Martial Monarchs with strength more than five ancient black dragons were qualified to become a disciple of the Martial Emperor.
The strength of five ancient black dragons was the minimum requirement.
Right at this moment, Feng Tian Wu, Chen Shao Shuai, and Xiong Quan finally learned what the three words ‘Martial Emperor’s disciple’ meant from the discussion of the group of Ling Tian Sect’s elders and disciples nearby.
Chen Shao Shuai and Xiong Quan’s expression turned horrified as well.
‘Damn it! Why is a Martial Emperor’s disciple so strong?’ Chen Shao Shuai swore in his heart.
Although Feng Tian Wu’s face remained calm, there was a hint of worry in the depth of her beautiful autumn eyes.
It was obvious that she was worried for Duan Ling Tian.
“Luo Ping, You Ping, You An… I’ll give the three of you a chance. Stand with me, and after Lord Yang Chun kills Duan Ling Tian, all of you will still belong to my Yin Yang Sect,” Yun Gang said at a speed that neither fast nor slow as he looked at Luo Ping and the other two, “If none of you is willing, I won’t let you live after Lord Yang Chun kills Duan Ling Tian.”
From Yun Gang’s words, it was apparent he wanted Luo Ping and the other two to make a decision.
This decision was closely related to their lives.
The faces of Luo Ping and the other two turned a shade of green before it paled from this change of events.
“I’ll give you a span of ten breaths to decide. After ten breaths, you’ll be my enemy if you don’t come to me!” Yun Gang further forced Luo Ping and the other two to make up their minds.
The moment these words left Yun Gang’s mouth, everybody present on the scene, except Yang Chun, shifted their eyes to Luo Ping and the other two. They were curious about the choices those three would make. Would they stand against Ling Tian Sect by Yun Gang’s side or would they stand against Yun Gang?
Any one of the decisions carried its own risk.
If they chose the former, one could easily imagine the outcome if Duan Ling Tian, the Sect Leader of Ling Tian Sect, managed to kill Yang Chun the Martial Emperor’s disciple. Nobody would let someone who betrayed them go.
However, if they chose the latter, they would also die if Yang Chun the Martial Emperor’s disciple managed to kill Duan Ling Tian, the Sect Leader of Ling Tian Sect. Yun Gang would definitely kill them immediately.
In the end, to make a choice right now was akin to making a gamble. A gamble on whether Duan Ling Tian was stronger or Yang Chun was stronger.
Duan Ling Tian’s strength was no secret to most people in the Ling Tian Sect
Three months ago, when Duan Ling Tian fought against the leaders of the four great first-rate forces, the powerful strength he had demonstrated was equivalent to the strength of four ancient black dragons and over 9,000 ancient horned dragons.
However, as a Martial Emperor’s disciple, Yang Chun’s strength was at least equivalent to five ancient black dragons even if he was not the direct disciple of a Martial Emperor.
“Yun Gang, if I stand on your side, it means that I’m standing on Yang Hong’s side. Due to this reason, I choose to survive or perish together with the Ling Tian Sect!” Luo Ping was the first person to make up her mind.
Yang Hong was already dead, but Yun Gang had brought Yang Chun, the blood brother of Yang Hong. It was similar to standing on Yang Hong’s side if she stood together with Yun Gang.
She hated Yang Hong from the bottom of her heart, that was why she instantly had an answer.
The moment Luo Ping’s words left her mouth, many Ling Tian Sect’s elders and disciples’ eyes lit up as they praised her under their breaths with words like “What a superwoman!” and “She’s a warrior!”.
“Hurmph! Since you want to die, I’ll not stop you!” Yun Gang snorted in disdain upon hearing Luo Ping’s words.
In the next instant, he turned to look at the You Brothers whose expression continued to change constantly before he warned in a deep voice, “You Ping, You An… Both of you must think this through! Right now, you still have a span of five breaths!”
A span of five breaths!
The moment they heard Yun Gang’s words, the You Brothers’ faces turned pale once again.
At this moment, the two You Brothers had also become the target of everyone’s eyes.
“What choice do you think the two Vice Sect Leaders will make?’
“I don’t know.”
“I guess this depends on whether their faith lies more with the Sect Leader or that Martial Emperor’s disciple.
Many Ling Tian Sect’s elders and disciples whispered among each other.
They were looking forward to seeing what kind of choice the You Brothers would make.
After a span of two breaths passed, Yun Gang opened his mouth to remind them again, “Three breaths left!”
Colors drained from the You Brothers’ faces even more.
Soon after, two breaths had gone by again, and Yun Gang announced in a deep voice, “You still have the span of one breath left!”
Almost as soon as Yun Gang’s words left his mouth, the You Brothers finally made a move. They flew out one after another and arrived behind Yun Gang a moment later.
“Hahahaha…” Yun Gang laughed uproariously when he saw the You Brothers choosing his side. He looked at both of them and said, “You Ping, You An, you’ll realize soon just how right your decision is!”
In the next instant, he looked at Luo Ping and sneered. “Luo Ping, you’ll find out soon just how foolish your decision is!”
Luo Ping ignored Yun Gang’s mocking and looked at the You Brothers directly before saying in a deep voice, “You Ping, You An, have you two even given a thought to the Sect Leader when you made such a decision? If I remember correctly, both of you seem to possess the spirit weapons and pills the Sect Leader personally crafted right?”
Whether it was You Ping or You An, both of them had a grade one spirit weapon that gave a 90% boost that Duan Ling Tian had forged for them.
Both of them had also obtained two bottles of grade one Life Recovery Pills with 91% Purity from Duan Ling Tian.
Upon hearing Luo Ping’s words, the You Brothers’ faces turned a shade paler. However, they remained silent since they knew they were in the wrong.
“I honestly feel upset on behalf of Duan Ling Tian! And to think that he actually let both of you become the Vice Sect Leaders of Ling Tian Sect,” Chen Shao Shuai said scornfully to the You Brothers and sneered in disdain.
A hint of murderous intent targeted at the You Brothers also appeared in the depth of Feng Tian Wu’s eyes. The choices they made had infuriated her.
“Which one of you is Duan Ling Tian?” Yang Chun, who was standing by the side watching the scene unfolding before his eyes, finally opened his mouth. The instant he opened his mouth, he immediately asked for Duan Ling Tian, the Sect Leader of Ling Tian Sect.
“Lord Yang Chun, Duan Ling Tian’s not here yet,” Yun Gang who was standing behind him said respectfully.
“However, the three of them are all Duan Ling Tian’s followers. If you kill them, Lord Yang Chun, I’m sure Duan Ling Tian will immediately make his appearance!” Yun Gang’s gaze shifted toward Feng Tian Wu, Xiong Quan, and Gold Thug before he smiled cynically.
At this moment, Yang Chun’s gaze shifted toward Feng Tian Wu and the other two.
Now that Xiong Quan and Gold Thug were being targeted, horror dawned on them instantly.
However, they still flew out in unison and stood in front of Feng Tian Wu like two guards.
“How loyal of you… Looks like she must be that Duan Ling Tian’s woman!” Yang Chun snorted. “In that case, I’ll kill this woman first like crushing a flower. I believe that coward Duan Ling Tian will then show his face immediately!”
From his tone, it was obvious he was not going to show any mercy at all even after he was faced with Feng Tian Wu’s beauty.
“Idiot!” Just as Yang Chun was about to attack Feng Tian Wu, an indifferent voice resonated throughout the entire place as though it came from everywhere.
