Translator: EndlessFantasy Translation Editor: EndlessFantasy Translation
“Which one of you is Duan Ling Tian?” The black-clad young man asked calmly as he looked at the people before him.
At this moment, everyone in Ling Tian Sect looked a little terrified.
Based on the black-clad young man’s question, it was clear he was here for the Martial Emperor’s disciple, Yang Chun. Moreover, he was here to avenge Yang Chun.
“Since that Martial Emperor’s disciple, Yang Chun, was killed by Sect Leader… If this person is also a Martial Emperor’s disciple like Yang Chun, I’m sure he won’t have the guts to come to our Ling Tian Sect alone.”
Many Ling Tian Sect’s elders and disciples discussed among themselves.
“However, this person dares to come to our Ling Tian Sect alone, he must be really confident of his ability. He has to be stronger than Yang Chun,” a Ling Tian Sect elder suddenly said. His words caused the entire place to fall silent.
“His ability is even more powerful than Yang Chun, and he’s here to avenge Yang Chun… Could this person be the Martial Emperor’s direct disciple?”
The Martial Emperor’s direct disciple!
That was the most powerful person under the Martial Emperor. This was someone who met the Martial Emperor often and would get advice and teachings from the Martial Emperor.
The ability of someone like that was unattainable for everyone here. There was nothing they could do but humbly look up at this person.
“You’re smart to have figured out my identity.” The black-clad young man looked at the Ling Tian Sect’s elder and said calmly, “That’s right. I’m the Martial Emperor’s direct disciple. My master is Martial Emperor Shi Qi of Lost Stone Forest… Yang Chun was just a Martial Emperor’s disciple who ran errands for me.”
The black-clad young man’s words were like a clap of thunder. It made many people changed their expression, and they had fear in their eyes.
Although they had speculated earlier that the black-clad young man before them might be the Martial Emperor’s direct disciple, it gave them a different feeling when this person confirmed their speculations.
After all, there was a chance that they might have speculated wrongly.
However, the situation changed when that person confirmed it.
“Martial… Martial Emperor’s direct disciple? He… he really is that Martial Emperor’s direct disciple?”
“I guess it’s true… According to him, even Yang Chun was just someone who ran errands for him. I really didn’t expect he’ll come to Ling Tian Sect for someone who used to run errands for him.”
“It’s like the saying, ‘Find out who is the master of the dog before beating it’… He must feel like his pride is being trampled on.”
The faces of a group of Ling Tian Sect’s elders and disciples changed one after another. Apart from shock, they felt fear as well.
“Duan Ling Tian, I’m giving you the span of three breaths… If you don’t show yourself, I’m going to destroy your Ling Tian Sect!” Although the black-clad young man’s tone was calm, it felt like Mount Tai was pressing down on their chests when they heard it. It was suffocating.
“Our Sect Leader has been away for two months, and he has yet to return,” Zhang San said with a terrible expression on his face.
He did not expect the black-clad young man before him to be the Martial Emperor’s direct disciple. He possessed the ability to destroy the Ling Tian Sect all on his own.
Put aside the fact that their Sect Leader was away, even if he was here, Zhang San believed that person was still capable of destroying the Ling Tian Sect.
A Martial Emperor’s direct disciple was at the peak of the Martial Monarch Stage. Ordinary Martial Monarch powerhouses could not compare to him.
Although their Sect Leader was powerful, he might not be a match for this person.
“That’s right,” Luo Ping spoke after Zhang San, supporting what he had said. It seemed as though she was concerned the Martial Emperor’s direct disciple would not believe Zhang San’s words.
There was fear in Luo Ping’s eyes too.
“He left?” The black-clad young man narrowed his eyes a little before opening them again. A hint of viciousness flashed in his eyes.
Subsequently, he looked around and said in his deep voice, “If that’s the case, I’ll give all of you two options… One, find someone to die on behalf of Duan Ling Tian. Or two, I kill all of you, effectively wiping out the Ling Tian Sect.” He was doing this for his pride.
He did not care if it was Duan Ling Tian or the people Duan Ling Tian cared about who died.
Although he was not bothered about Yang Chun’s death, Yang Chun had been his underling for many years. Duan Ling Tian had messed with the wrong person. That was why the black-clad young man felt compelled to do something about it.
The black-clad young man’s words seemed to have caused a wave in the area. It made everyone, including Zhang San and Luo Ping, changed their expression.
However, there were no volunteers.
Neither Zhang San nor Luo Ping volunteered even though they were the Vice Sect Leaders.
This was not a joke!
They would definitely die if they volunteered themselves.
Although they could save everyone in the sect if they volunteered to die for their Sect Leader, how could they sacrifice their own lives to save others?
“What to do? What to do?” Many of Ling Tian Sect’s elders and disciples panicked.
“Who’s willing to die for our Sect Leader? Sacrificing one person will save the entire sect! We’ll remember the person who volunteers.”
“Bullshit! Why don’t you volunteer, and we’ll remember you?”
The group of Ling Tian Sect’s elders and disciples looked terrible as they looked at each other. Nobody was willing to volunteer.
“Seems like all of you cherish your lives,” the black-clad young man mocked them as he watched the scene unfolding before his eyes.
“If that’s the case, I’ll send all of you to hell…” Subsequently, waves of terrifying aura rose from the black-clad young man’s body when he lifted his arm. The dreadful aura was so oppressive it made those Ling Tian Sect’s disciples with lower cultivation base changed their expression. They had a look of despair on their faces.
This was the power of a Martial Emperor’s direct disciple?
“You said you’ll let them go as long as somebody volunteers, right?” At this moment, a calm yet cold voice reverberated in the air, interrupting the black-clad young man. It was a woman’s voice. It came from the distance.
Subsequently, a fiery-red silhouette appeared like a fire elf. It appeared before the people and stood there looking at the black-clad young man.
“Miss Tian Wu, let me represent Young Master.” At the same time, two silhouettes appeared as well. One of the middle-aged men looked at the red-clad lady solemnly.
The red-clad lady who had just appeared was Feng Tian Wu. She glared at the black-clad young man before her coldly as soon as she had appeared.
“His sect is my sect,” she responded calmly to Xiong Quan who had just arrived as though doing this was a matter of course.
‘What a beauty!’ The black-clad young man’s eyes were glued to Feng Tian Wu as soon as she appeared.
He had seen many beautiful women in his life, but most of them were superficial. It was his first time seeing such a beautiful and elegant lady like the red-clad lady before him.
His heart that had always been filled with passion for the Martial Dao and cultivation since the beginning of time jolted.
He was in love.
“Miss Tian Wu.” Xiong Quan’s expression changed drastically when he heard Feng Tian Wu’s words. How was he supposed to report this to his Young Master if something happened to Miss Tian Wu?
“Kill me, and let everyone go.” Xiong Quan took a deep breath and appeared before Feng Tian Wu like a bolt of lightning. He shielded Feng Tian Wu behind him.
As soon as Xiong Quan stood still, the sound of wind whistling sounded before a silhouette appeared next to him. Both of them stood in front of Feng Tian Wu like a shield, protecting her.
It was Gold Thug.
“Gold Thug, you…” Xiong Quan could not help but feel stunned when he saw Gold Thug protecting Feng Tian Wu like him.
It made sense for Xiong Quan to sacrifice his life for his Young Master whom he had been following for years.
However, it was different for Gold Thug since the time he spent with his Young Master was short.
“What? Can’t believe I would do something like that?” Gold Thug smiled calmly. There was a hint of respect in his eyes. “From the second Master avenged our clan, I’ve given my life to him.”
“For my Master, I, Gold Thug, would die without regrets! It’s only unfortunate I won’t be able to stay by Master’s side,” Gold Thug said as he sighed.
Feng Tian Wu, Gold Thug, and Xiong Quan stood before the black-clad young man to protect all the Ling Tian Sect’s elders and disciples.
At this time, many of those people’s faces flushed in embarrassment.
“I, Zhang San, am willing to sacrifice my life for Sect Leader too.” Soon after, Zhang San whose expression changed a few times flew next to Xiong Quan and Gold Thug. His eyes were trained on the black-clad young man.
He had always looked up to the Sect Leader ever since he joined the Ling Tian Sect. Moreover, he had also obtained many benefits from the Sect Leader.
He would be ashamed of himself if he did not volunteer.
He already felt immensely guilty for not volunteering earlier.
Another sound of wind whistling reverberated in the air. Luo Ping had also stepped out to volunteer.
Due to this, the two Vice Sect Leaders of Ling Tian Sect, Zhang San and Luo Ping, gained the respect of the Ling Tian Sect’s elders and disciples present on the scene.
They used their actions to prove they were worthy of their positions as the Vice Sect Leaders.
“Hmph! Your useless lives aren’t enough to die for Duan Ling Tian.” At this moment, something unexpected happened. The black-clad young man lifted his arm, and a majestic wind swept out. It swept the four people in front of Feng Tian Wu away in just a second.
There were two Seventh Level Martial Monarchs among the four Martial Monarchs, but none of them managed to react in time. They were swept away one after another and did not have the ability to fight back.
They were as vulnerable as ants before the black-clad young man.
At this moment, the expression of the four people changed.
After getting rid of the four ‘obstacles’ before him, the black-clad young man looked at Feng Tian Wu with a burning desire. He bluntly asked, “You! Are you sure you’re willing to die for the Sect Leader of Ling Tian Sect, Duan Ling Tian?”
Feng Tian Wu did not respond to the black-clad young man.
The determination in her eyes was undoubtedly the best response.
“Such a beauty like you is willing to die for Duan Ling Tian… To be honest, even I’m a little jealous of him,” the black-clad young man said slowly. He was not angry at all.
There was envy in his eyes as he asked, “Great! What kind of relationship do you have with him that you’re even willing to die for him?”
“He’s my man,” Feng Tian Wu answered this time. Her eyes that were initially cold turned lively when she spoke. Even the frost on her face seemed to have melted a little.
