Chapter 121: The Domineering Duan Ling Tian
Translator: KurazyTolanzuraytor Editor: Lucas
Xiong Quan’s sudden shout caused the people who were concealed at a corner outside the courtyard to be unable to hide any longer, and thus they simply walked out in the open.
Xiao Yu’s brows slightly frowned.
Duan Ling Tian’s expression remained tranquil, as if it wasn’t the least bit unexpected to him…
“Luo Hu, Luo Kian, you two have been surveilling me!” Seeing the two of them caused Luo Qian to be so angry that her face went slightly pale. 
“Luo Qian, this is the Patriarch’s orders.” The two Luo Clan youths had tranquil expressions.
Luo Qian took a deep breath and ignored the two of them before looking at Duan Ling Tian and Xiao Yu. “You both are my brother’s friends? But my brother’s gone to Iron Blood City and hasn’t returned yet.”
Duan Ling Tian and Xiao Yu looked at each other with bitter smiles on the corners of their mouths.
They really couldn’t bear to break the news about Luo Cheng to Luo Qian… but they knew that Luo Qian would find out sooner or later.
“Luo Qian, this is the letter your brother left for you.” Duan Ling Tian withdrew Luo Cheng’s will and passed it over to Luo Qian.
Luo Qian’s face was ghastly pale as she received the letter with trembling hands, seeming to have realized something as she opened and read it…
Unknowingly, tears had started pouring from her eyes like waterfalls. “Big brother…I told you the Genius Camp’s training was dangerous. Why didn’t you listen…. How am I supposed to live without you…?”
“Luo Cheng’s dead?” The pupils of the two Luo Clan young men constricted.
“You have our condolences.” Duan Ling Tian and Xiao Yu consoled her.
Luo Qian’s delicate figure slightly trembled and twitched for a few moments before finally asking, “You’re big brother Ling Tian?”
“Yes.” Duan Ling Tian nodded.
“My big brother said I should listen to you from now on.” Luo Qian cried as she spoke.
“We came today to take you away from the Luo Clan. This is also your brother’s wish.” Duan Ling Tian lightly smiled.
“Hmph! According to the agreement between him and our Luo Clan, since he’s dead and unable to obtain the qualifications to enter Paladin Academy… then Luo Qian must obey our Luo Clan’s arrangements and marry the Qian Clan’s Young Master, and thus unite our two clans in marriage. No one can take her away!” The two Luo Clan young men took a step forward and stared fiercely at Duan Ling Tian’s group of three.
“No one can stop me from taking her away!” Duan Ling Tian sneered with a domineering expression.
Xiao Yu was even more straightforward as he directly took a step forward before his figure jerked.
Xiao Yu flicked his sleeve that was bursting with Origin Energy and directly blasted the two Luo Clan young men away. “F**k off!”
On the way here, Xiao Yu had learned of Luo Cheng’s unfulfilled wish from Duan Ling Tian…
Luo Cheng didn’t desire for his sister to become the Luo Clan’s tool to unite their clan with the Qian Clan in marriage! And this was precisely the reason why he joined the Genius Camp.
Everything Luo Cheng did was for the sake of his sister.
The will he wrote Duan Ling Tian was to ask Duan Ling Tian to help him save his sister by taking her away from the Luo Clan and providing her with a stable life.
“Fourth level of the Core Formation Stage!” The two Luo Clan young men’s expressions turned grim when they noticed the six ancient mammoth silhouettes above Xiao Yu.
They glanced at each other and left in a sorry state.
“Pack up your things and leave with us.” Duan Ling Tian smiled to Luo Qian.
Luo Qian nodded as her tears uncontrollably poured out, but when she thought of what Luo Cheng wrote within his will, she wiped off her tears and put on a strong and resolute expression. She wanted to be strong and not let her big brother down!
“’ll help you.” Xiao Yu followed Luo Qian into her room.
With Xiao Yu’s help, it wasn’t long before Luo Qian had packed away all her things.
Duan Ling Tian took the lead with Xiong Quan following right behind him and Xiao Yu and Luo Qian followed from behind.
The group of four made their way towards the exit of the Luo Clan Estate, but when they arrived at the main door, three figures stood there like guardians of the way. One was a middle-aged man and the other two were old men.
“Patriarch!” Seeing the middle-aged man caused Luo Qian’s face to turn pale.
“Luo Qian, I’ll give you a chance. You stay and I’ll let them leave… If you don’t, then they will undoubtedly die!” The middle-aged man’s eyes flashed with a trace of a cold light.
Luo Qian’s face went pale and she struggled for a moment before finally looking at Duan Ling Tian and Xiao Yu. “Thank you for taking care of my big brother. Leave without me…” After the Patriarch and the two elders appeared, she realized that it was impossible for Duan Ling Tian to take her away.
As far as she was concerned, Duan Ling Tian and Xiao Yu were her big brother’s friends, and thus she was unwilling to implicate them.
In her heart, she was ready to die. Once Duan Ling Tian and Xiao Yu had smoothly left, she would choose to take her own life.
Her brother wasn’t here anymore, so she didn’t have any ties in this world…
“Big brother, I’ll come accompany you really soon. I would rather die than marry that Qian Clan’s profligate disciple.” Luo Qian’s heart flashed with a trace of melancholy.
Xiao Yu’s face sank as his cold and indifferent gaze descended upon the Luo Clan’s Patriarch. “I’m the grandson of the Aurora City’s Xiao Clan’s Supreme Elder…If you have any sense, then hurry up and scram!”
“Aurora City’s Xiao Clan?”
The Luo Clan Patriarch started laughing. “It isn’t the place for your Aurora City’s Clan to meddle in our Luo Clan’s affairs! Elders, see our guests out!”
“Yes!” Immediately, the two elders that were standing behind the Patriarch moved, flashing straight towards Duan Ling Tian, Xiao Yu and Xiong Quan.
Above each of the two old men, 20 ancient mammoth silhouettes appeared…
First level of the Origin Core Stage!
Xiao Yu’s expressions distorted.
“Xiong Quan!” Duan Ling Tian finally spoke, and his voice was incomparably cold and indifferent.
“Humph! Two first level Core Formation martial artists dare to be presumptuous in front of my liege! F**k off!” Xiong Quan grunted coldly as he moved forward swiftly, blasting the two Luo Clan elders away with a slap each and causing them to be knocked out cold after they crashed onto the ground.
Above Xiong Quan, 40 ancient mammoth silhouettes flickered before vanishing.
“Third level of the Origin Core Stage!” The Luo Clan Patriarch’s expression went grim, and his gaze was filled with a cold fierceness as he walked out in large strides.
Above him, 40 ancient mammoth silhouettes appeared as well…
Duan Ling Tian’s expression turned cold. “Xiong Quan, cripple him!”
“Yes, my liege!” Xiong Quan moved, but he seemed to have moved entirely from one point to another with only a single step…
Earth Heaven Warp!
A green sword light flashed by and then a shrill cry was heard. The Luo Clan’s Patriarch knelt on the ground before his entire body crashed onto the ground, as his body had lost all support. Blood sprayed out from all four of his limbs.
The tendons in both his hands and legs were severed!
As the Luo Clan’s Patriarch lied on all fours, he raised his head to see the 49 ancient mammoth silhouettes that flickered above Xiong Quan before vanishing at almost the same moment. He said, with a shaky voice, “Seven… Grade Seven Spirit Weapon…”
In the end, the Luo Clan Patriarch lost too much blood and fainted.
“Patriarch!” The two Luo Clan young men that went to deliver the news earlier were standing nearby, and when they saw this scene, they were scared to the point that their legs shook and their faces went ghastly pale.
Duan Ling Tian’s cold gaze swept past the two of them. “I already said this earlier: no one can stop me from taking her away! Let’s go.”
Only after Duan Ling Tian’s group left the Luo Clan Estate were the two Luo Clan young men finally be able to react.
Their ears echoed with the domineering words of the violet-clothed youth: “No one can stop me from taking her away!”
When they heard this for the first time, they thought that the youth was arrogant and conceited, but now it would seem that the youth was actually confident!
Outside of the Luo Clan Estate, Duan Ling Tian jumped up onto his horse.
Xiao Yu, on the other hand, pulled Luo Qian up onto his horse. He held her in his arms as he galloped.
Seeing this caused the corners of Duan Ling Tian’s mouth to flash with a smile, as he had long ago noticed Xiao Yu’s gaze flicker with a strange light. It would seem that Xiao Yu had feelings for Luo Qian….
It was better this way, as at the very least Luo Qian would have someone to rely on.
If Luo Cheng was aware in the afterlife, he would finally be able to rest at ease.
On the way, Xiao Yu’s gaze had never once left Xiong Quan.
He wasn’t clear of Xiong Quan’s background; all he knew was that since they left Iron Blood City, this middle-aged man who wore a mask that covered half his face had always followed Duan Ling Tian and even addressed Duan Ling Tian as his liege.
At the moment Xiong Quan noticed the two Luo Clan young men, Xiao Yu became aware of how Xiong Quan was no simple person…. And when Xiong Quan exerted the strength of the third level of the Origin Core Stage and even withdrew a Grade Seven Spirit Weapon out of the air, he was utterly dumbstruck…
This Xiong Quan actually had a Spatial Ring!
As for the Grade Seven Spirit Weapon…. Even his grandfather, the Xiao Clan’s Supreme Elder, an existence at the Nascent Soul Stage, did not possess one.
“Duan Ling Tian, he…” Xiao Yu spurred his horse closer to Duan Ling Tian before asking in a low voice.
Duan Ling Tian’s brows slightly knit as he indifferently said, “He’s my servant.”
Servant? The corners of Xiao Yu’s mouth twitched.
Even Luo Qian, whose tears had not dried yet, seemed to have forgotten her grief for a moment and had an astonished expression…
This person whose strength was even stronger than the Luo Clan Patriarch’s was actually Duan Ling Tian’s servant?
Who the heck was this friend of her brothers? Her heart trembled slightly.
Duan Ling Tian was fairly satisfied with the strength Xiong Quan had recovered as of current, and based on the current circumstances, when the medicinal strength of the second Spirit Cleansing Pill manifests one month from now, Xiong Quan should be able to recover his strength to at least the seventh level of the Origin Core Stage.
In two months, once the third Spirit Cleansing Pill’s medicinal strength manifests, it will be sufficient for Xiong Quan’s strength to recover to the Nascent Soul Stage!
As far as Duan Ling Tian was concerned, the current Xiong Quan was like a sharp blade in his hand…
Anyone who dared stand in his way would be bound to die beneath this sharp blade of his.
Xiao Yu’s gaze was complicated, as he couldn’t help but sigh in his heart. “Why is there such a huge difference between two people?”
Not to mention Duan Ling Tian’s natural talent being superior to his, now even his servant was an existence at the Origin Core Stage. This caused Xiao Yu to feel slightly disturbed…
Before long, he was able to come to terms with the matter.
As far as he was concerned, Duan Ling Tian was a freak and could not be looked at from a normal person’s perspective.
After half a month’s time of travelling, Aurora City finally appeared before Duan Ling Tian’s group…
Duan Ling Tian’s heart trembled…
Mom, I’m home!
Ke Er, I’m home!
Little Fei, I’m home!
Xiao Yu’s eyes flickered with the brilliance of excitement as well…
Duan Ling Tian glanced at Xiao Yu as he asked, “Xiao Yu, you take care of Luo Qian from now on. How about it?”
“No problem.” Xiao Yu nodded.
Duan Ling Tian then glanced at Luo Qian and lightly smiled. “Little Qian, Xiao Yu is someone worthy of you relying upon. I believe that he will take good care of you and give you a carefree life.”
After half a month’s time, Luo Qian had recovered quite a bit. Hearing Duan Ling Tian’s words, which had a hidden meaning, caused her face was to go slightly red, and she was at a loss for words as she nodded. “Yes, Big Brother Ling Tian.”
Duan Ling Tian looked at Xiao Yu with a serious expression. “From the moment Luo Cheng entrusted Luo Qian’s care to me, I’ve taken her to be my own little sister. Now I’m giving her to you, and I will absolutely not let you off if you let her suffer any injustice!”
“Don’t worry!” Xiao Yu nodded with a serious expression and his eyes flashed with a trace of gratitude.
He knew that Duan Ling Tian had long since seen through his thoughts and was helping him.
 TL note – The second guy here ‘Luo Kian’ is actually named ‘Luo Qian’ but with a character that has the same Pinyin but different writing and pronunciation as Luo Cheng’s sisters name. So it seemed in everyone’s best interest to slightly modify his name.
