After that, the duo came to their senses and realized that their First Senior Brother had asked them to apologize to the purple-clad youth before them.
“First Senior Brother, he…” Although Song Ting was stunned by the strength displayed by Duan Ling Tian, he still could not apologize to him.
Naturally, he would not resign to that.
However, he was interrupted by Zhou Di before he finished his sentence. Zhou Di calmly said, “He is Master’s guest.” Zhou Di emphasized the word “guest”.
Song Ting was astonished after he heard Zhou Di.
“Sir, sorry for offending you. We didn’t know that you’re Master’s guest. I hope you’ll forgive us.” At that point, Zhong An had already bowed to Duan Ling Tian and apologized.
Although Duan Ling Tian looked mind-blowingly young, the strength he presented was sufficient for Zhong An to bow to him and apologize.
Moreover, who knew if he was a Demon Emperor powerhouse?
Song Ting took a deep breath and followed suit. Now, he would not dare to be reckless.
What kind of joke was this?
First Senior Brother Zhou Di had said that he was Master’s guest. If he still continued to act recklessly, it would mean that he was disrespecting the Master.
For that reason, he would never dare to do so.
However, Duan Ling Tian ignored their apology as he looked at Zhou Di and asked puzzledly, “Martial Emperor Ling Xuan knows me?” U.p..dated by BoxNo vel.com
Duan Ling Tian also knew that the middle-aged man in front of him was not the Martial Emperor Ling Xuan, but his first direct disciple.
“You’re kidding, aren’t you? If the Master didn’t know you, he wouldn’t have asked me to come and invite you for a gathering,” Zhou Di said to Duan Ling Tian, “Please follow me.”
He left after that.
Duan Ling Tian raised his eyebrows and followed closely with his heart full of curiosity and confusion.
After Duan Ling Tian left with Zhou Di, above the spacious stone platform which was ruined was dead silent although there were many people. The silence was terrifying.
After a while, they slowly came to their senses, their faces and their eyes were filled with shock.
“That purple-clad youth is the Lord Martial Emperor’s guest?”
Everyone was shocked.
“Song Ting, you seem to be a little off today… As if you can’t wait to kill him! Is it because you have some deep hatred for him? I’ve been totally dragged down by you today.”
Zhong An looked at Song Ting and complained through Voice Transmission, “Don’t tell me it’s because of Lu Zhong’s death.”
When he heard Zhong An’s Voice Transmission, Song Ting, who was a little wooden, finally recovered from the shock. Unconsciously, a bitter smile hung from the corner of his mouth.
At first, he wanted to kill him because of Lu Zhong’s death.
To be more precise, it was because of the death of Lu Zhong and his brother.
One should look at the master before beating the dogs!
By killing his men, he felt challenged which was why he wanted to kill the other party so badly.
Who knew that the other party had the strength equivalent to a Martial Emperor powerhouse? In fact, the other party was stronger than First Senior Brother and was a guest of his master’s.
If he had known all that, he would not have made it difficult for the other party and consequently, be bogged down deeper and deeper.
“I hope Master won’t blame me for this.” At that moment, Song Ting started to be afraid.
“Martial Emperor Ling Xuan’s guest?”
“Why I have never heard of that from Duan Ling Tian?”
The Nangong Twins looked at each other, their eyes filled with confusion and doubts.
However, they felt another surge of shock when they remembered the strength he showed.
Eventually, Zhong An announced after he recovered, “We’ll continue with the second round of selection.”
The others also slowly came back to their senses from the earlier surprises and shifted their focus to the second round of selection.
On the other hand, Duan Ling Tian was following Zhou Di with a slight frown while doubt filled his heart.
“I don’t seem to know that Martial Emperor Ling Xuan,” he thought to himself.
Following Zhou Di’s lead, he finally saw Martial Emperor Ling Xuan in a mist-shrouded stone platform on the side of the Ling Xuan Peak’s summit.
Behind the mist, there was a little stone platform, and on it was a simple and neat house with a courtyard.
In the courtyard, a stone table stood quietly with two stone benches on each side.
“Master, the guest has arrived.” After Zhou Di brought Duan Ling Tian here, he bowed to the person who sat at the stone table with a very respectful tone.
The person who sat there was a youthful man. When he turned to look at Duan Ling Tian, his face was also on display for all to see and Duan Ling Tian could not help but be stunned.
“It’s… It’s you!” Looking at the familiar but strange face before him, he was slightly surprised because it was not the first time they had met.
The youthful man was Martial Emperor Ling Xuan. He looked at Duan Ling Tian while exclaiming, “I originally said that you’ve got the chance to comprehend the Sword Profundity… It seems that I was wrong about you. You already comprehended the Sword Profundity early on.”
Earlier, when Duan Ling Tian was following Zhou Di, the Sword Profundity was on the surface of his body. As a Sword Cultivator, the Martial Emperor Ling Xuan could easily notice that.
“Me too, I’ve overlooked it… It turns out that you’re Martial Emperor Ling Xuan.” Duan Ling Tian shook his head and smiled.
Martial Emperor Ling Xuan was no other than the person whom he had met at the summit of Ling Xuan Peak back then.
He still remembered the first time when he saw Yang Hui. The Martial Emperor had been controlling the sword with his spiritual energy.
At that time, he thought that Yang Hui was an Inscription Master, so he had not checked his cultivation base with his spiritual energy.
Looking back, Yang Hui was not necessarily an Inscription Master.
Martial Emperor powerhouses could send out their spiritual energy. Apart from controlling the sword with spiritual energy, they could even attack with the same spiritual energy and battle with it. It was nothing to them.
“It was because of your pointers then that I could finally improve my Sword Profundity by a level… And coincidently, my cultivation base also broke through to the next level after I improved my Sword Profundity.”
Martial Emperor Ling Xuan, Yang Hui’s gaze on Duan Ling Tian was filled with kindness without the haughty air of a Martial Emperor powerhouse.
“Sit.” After that, Yang Hui gestured to Duan Ling Tian to sit at the stone table.
Zhou Di who was standing aside was stunned. Although he knew that the purple-clad youth was his master’s guest, he never imagined that the purple-clad youth would have given tips to his master and help him break through his Sword Profundity and cultivation base.
“Congratulations, Master.” After Zhou Di recovered from the surprise, he quickly congratulated Yang Hui while feeling a little excited.
His master was originally a Third Level Martial Emperor, so this breakthrough must have catapulted him to the Fourth Level Martial Emperor Stage.
In addition to the breakthrough on the Sword Profundity, his master’s current strength was sufficient to be considered upper-mid level among the Martial Emperor powerhouses and Demon Emperor powerhouses on the surface of the Cloud Continent.
“Hmm.” When he heard Zhou Di’s congratulations, Yang Hui nodded faintly. “Leave us.”
“Master.” However, Zhou Di did not move when he remembered the incident earlier. He decided to tell his master all about it. Who knew if his master’s guest would put the blame on his Junior Brothers or not?
After listening to Zhou Di’s narration, Yang Hui frowned as he cried out, “Those two blind bastards!”
Following that, Yang Hui looked at Duan Ling Tian and apologized, “Brother Ling Tian, I’m sorry that my two direct disciples have offended you. I hope you can forgive them.”
If they were ordinary Martial Emperor’s disciples or followers, he would not have felt anything even if he executed them.
However, the problem was that both Song Ting and Zhong An were his direct disciples.
He only had a total of three direct disciples. Hence, obviously, he would be reluctant to lose them.
“You don’t have to apologize… Just do me a favor,” Duan Ling Tian said calmly.
“I remember that you said you needed my help back then, Brother Ling Tian… What is it, Brother Ling Tian? What can I help you with?” Yang Hui nodded and asked curiously.
“I want to know where I’m from,” Duan Ling Tian revealed.
“Where you’re from?” Yang Hui could not help but be stunned. “Brother Ling Tian, don’t you even know where you’re from?”
“My soul was injured for some reason and I’ve lost some of my memories… including where I’m from. You’re a well-known Martial Emperor powerhouse on the Cloud Continent, adept in currying favors. I’m pretty sure you can help me with this.”
“I see… That’s not a big deal.” Yang Hui nodded and then looked at Zhou Di who was leaving. “Order the others to do it and be sure to get it done properly.”
As a Martial Emperor powerhouse on the surface of the Cloud Continent, Yang Hui controlled Ling Xuan Peak and owned an intelligence team. With a single order, there would be many intelligence personnel working for him.
“Yes,” Zhou Di answered respectfully and then he left.
“Brother Ling Tian, don’t worry. With Ling Xuan Peak’s intelligence, we’ll be able to know where you’re from very quickly… I believe you’re definitely not a mediocre nobody with such strength,” Yang Hui assured.
As a Martial Emperor powerhouse, he did not need a Demon Revelation Mirror to know that the person before him was not a demon.
Because he could see that Duan Ling Tian was not a demon, he understood how outstanding he was.
“Thank you.” Duan Ling Tian nodded towards Yang Hui.
“Brother Ling Tian, you’re so courteous… I wouldn’t have broken through my Sword Profundity so quickly if it weren’t for your pointers. Moreover, my cultivation base improved because of the opportunity from the breakthrough I made with the Sword Profundity.”
“Speaking of which, I should thank you,” Yang Hui said while smiling.
“Earlier, I heard from Zhou Di that Brother Ling Tian could easily defeat him… Brother Ling Tian, if you don’t mind me asking, you don’t seem to be a Martial Emperor…” Yang Hui sized up Duan Ling Tian and trailed off puzzledly.
Ever since Yang Hui had broken through to the Fourth Level Martial Emperor Stage, his spiritual energy underwent a qualitative change. He could sense whether a person was a Martial Emperor powerhouse or not.
According to the sense of his spiritual energy, the purple-clad youth in front of him did not seem to be a Martial Emperor, but merely a Martial Monarch.
