“I’m not from the Hidden Fog Island.” Duan Ling Tian shook his head.
He understood why Yang Hui came to such a conclusion. He would have come to such a conclusion as well if he was Yang Hui.
“No?” Yang Hui was stunned. He had a baffled expression on his face. “Then your two fiancés…”
“They came here to the Hidden Fog Island together with Martial Emperor You Han from You Han Valley,” Duan Ling Tian replied.
“Martial Emperor You Han?” Yang Hui frowned. “That crazy woman?”
“Crazy woman?” Duan Ling Tian was astonished and puzzled. “Why do you say that?”
“Brother Ling Tian, you don’t know her… That Martial Emperor You Han is a hypocrite. It’s said that more than several dozens years ago, she did not even spare her twin sister in order to obtain the position of Valley Master of You Han Valley. The reason she did that was due to her sister’s innate ability being better than hers and was supposed to become the successor of the Valley Master of You Han Valley. After she had killed her own blood sister, she successfully became the successor of the Valley Master of You Han Valley… Twenty years ago, the former Valley Master of You Han Valley finally died, paving the way for her to become the new Valley Master of You Han Valley,” Yang Hui explained.
“Are all these true?” Duan Ling Tian’s face turned slightly glum as he tried to affirm it.
Yang Hui nodded without any hesitation as he continued to talk freely and frankly, “This is not a secret to the group of Martial Emperors and Demon Emperors on Cloud Continent.”
“She killed her own twin sister?” Duan Ling Tian narrowed his eyes, and his face turned even glummer.
Although he had a feeling Martial Emperor You Han had an ulterior motive for taking Ke’er and Li Fei as her direct disciples, he did not expect her to be a lunatic to the extent she even killed her own twin sister.
Was there anything a woman like her could not do?
“Still, you don’t have to worry, Brother Ling Tian… As far as I know, although that Martial Emperor You Han is crazy, she’s usually very good to her direct disciples and doesn’t mistreat them. Since your two fiancés managed to become her direct disciples, I believe their innate abilities and comprehension abilities must be more or less similar to yours. Since there’s no conflict of interest, I’m sure Martial Emperor You Han doesn’t harbor any ill-intention toward them,” Yang Hui quickly reassured Duan Ling Tian when he saw he had instantly turned glum.
Duan Ling Tian nodded. Although his face became less tensed, it felt like his heart had sunk into a bottomless abyss.
Martial Emperor You Han might have a conflict of interest with his two fiancés. That conflict might stem from him. Or to be more precise, from the Rebirth Martial Emperor.
He had long suspected Martial Emperor You Han knew about the existence of the Rebirth Martial Emperor and some of the things regarding him from the legacy passed down from Martial Emperor Han Bing of You Han Valley.
“The Three Lives Rebirth Technique that the Rebirth Martial Emperor cultivated was not a secret to the Martial Emperors and Demon Emperors on Cloud Continent more than 20,000 years ago. That Martial Emperor Han Bing, in particular, knew the Three Lives Rebirth Technique that the Rebirth Martial Emperor cultivated very well! This was also one of the reasons she made a bet with the Rebirth Martial Emperor. At that time, the stake was the Rebirth Martial Emperor had to teach her the Three Lives Rebirth Technique if he lost. If she lost, she would have to pass the Han Bing’s Divine Sword Technique to the Rebirth Martial Emperor. In the end, she lost and had to fulfill her promise.” Duan Ling Tian learned about all these from the Rebirth Martial Emperor’s memory.
‘If my speculation is true, that Martial Emperor Han Bing is really a troublemaker!’ Duan Ling Tian scolded inwardly.
If Martial Emperor Han Bing had somehow disclosed the Three Lives Rebirth Technique that the Rebirth Martial Emperor cultivated to her successors through some methods, then, that Valley Master of You Han Valley, Martial Emperor You Han, as one of her successors must have known about the Three Lives Rebirth Technique that the Rebirth Martial Emperor cultivated and the profound secret behind it.
“Perhaps, she’s already ascertained that I’m the third reincarnation of the Rebirth Martial Emperor through the message that Martial Emperor Han Bing left behind and that I was the one who taught the Han Bing’s Divine Sword Technique to Ke’er. Otherwise, with the innate abilities and the comprehension abilities that Ke’er and Little Fei’er possessed, she would not have noticed them at all, let alone allowing them to become her direct disciples. She’s definitely scheming!” If Duan Ling Tian felt uncertain previously, he was now completely certain.
That Martial Emperor You Han was definitely concocting a plot.
“Brother Ling Tian, where are your two fiancés? Have they returned to Martial Emperor You Han? Why didn’t you bring them here for me to see?” Yang Hui asked when he saw Duan Ling Tian lost in his thoughts.
Yang Hui’s words snapped Duan Ling Tian back to reality. He shook his head. “They’re cultivating.”
“Oh, that’s right!” Soon after, Duan Ling Tian’s shifted back to the main issue. “Brother Yang, do you know where can I find a Wyrmdragon?”
“Wyrmdragon?” Yang Hui was a little astonished when he heard this. Naturally, he knew what Wyrmdragons were. “Brother Ling Tian, why are you looking for a Wyrmdragon?”
“I need a dragon tendon,” Duan Ling Tian said honestly.
“Dragon tendon?” The moment Duan Ling Tian’s words left his mouth, the corner of Yang Hui’s mouth twitched subtly.
If a Wyrmdragon was stripped of its dragon tendon, it would be crippled.
For a Wyrmdragon, the dragon tendon was equivalent to a human’s spine. It was extremely to vital it.
A human without a spine would be paralyzed and crippled.
Due to this reason, there was only one choice if one wanted the dragon tendon of a Wyrmdragon and that was to kill it. There was no other way apart from this.
“Brother Ling Tian, I’ve only heard of people encountering the Wyrmdragons, and I’ve yet to see one myself. However, I’m certain that there must be a Wyrmdragon somewhere in the deep sea.” When Yang Hui reached the end of his sentence, his gaze burned as he looked to the south.
At this moment, he was at the southern island of the Hidden Fog Island. The southern sea region was outside of the Hidden Fog Island’s boundary. If one wanted to return to Cloud Continent, one would have to cross this sea region.
“Must?” Duan Ling Tian looked at Yang Hui.
“I heard many people had encountered Wyrmdragons in the sea on the way to the Hidden Fog Island from Cloud Continent. That’s right! Brother Ling Tian, you’re looking for a dragon tendon right?” Yang Hui said calmly. However, when he reached the end of his sentence, his eyes narrowed as though he had just recalled something, and he asked again for confirmation.
“Yes.” Duan Ling Tian nodded.
“Brother Ling Tian, I know a Martial Emperor on Cloud Continent who once killed a Second Level Martial Emperor Stage Wyrmdragon. I wonder if he still has the dragon tendon with him,” Yang Hui explained.
Although the Wyrmdragon was the lowest level dragon, it was still a half-dragon no matter what. Due to this reason, its entire body was a treasure. Most ordinary people would keep its body.
At this moment, what Yang Hui was worried about the most was if the dragon tendon was no longer in the hand of that Martial Emperor.
“Is he coming to the Hidden Fog Island?” Duan Ling Tian asked urgently as his eyes shone.
Since he was presented with an opportunity to obtain a dragon tendon, he would not let it slip away no matter how small the chance was.
Only after he obtained the dragon tendon would he have a suitable bowstring for his Royal Grade Spirit Archery Set. At that time, he could finally cultivate the Saint Grade Martial Tactic, Colossal Aerolite Arrow!
Ever since he had learned about the almighty force of the Saint Grade Martial Tactic from Wang Ba, he was eager to cultivate the Colossal Aerolite Arrow.
“He’s here. He came to look for me just two weeks ago.” Yang Hui nodded.
That Martial Emperor could be considered as his friend.
The moment Yang Hui’s words left his mouth, Duan Ling Tian said urgently, “Let’s go find him then!” It was as though he was afraid someone would take the dragon tendon away from that Martial Emperor.
“Alright.” Yang Hui could clearly sense Duan Ling Tian’s urgency. Without wasting any more time, he brought Duan Ling Tian and left the residence that the Hidden Fog Island prepared for Ling Xuan Peak.
Yang Hui and Duan Ling Tian headed south in a straight line.
When they were approaching the sea region of the Hidden Fog Island’s southern island, Yang Hui slowed his speed.
Duan Ling Tian saw a residence along the coast, and he could not help but ask, “That’s where he’s staying?”
“To be more precise, it’s the place where he and the people he brought are staying,” Yang Hui replied.
Soon after, under Yang Hui’s guidance, Duan Ling Tian saw the Martial Emperor that Yang Hui told him about. He was an old man who was over seventy years old with white hair and white eyebrows.
Although the old man appeared old, he was fit and had a ruddy complexion. His eyes, in particular, shone like stars in the night sky.
Behind that old man was a bald middle-aged man who was clad in tiger skin. When he stood there, he looked like a guardian of the door. His face had a look that could hold back the entire enemy’s force.
“Yang Hui, we just met two weeks ago… Is there a reason why you came to look for me?” The old man asked. His eyes twinkled as he looked at Yang Hui.
“Dong Qiu, indeed I do have a reason for coming to look for you… However, before we get to the main topic, let me first introduce this little brother of mine to you,” Yang Hui replied before looking at Duan Ling Tian who was by his side, “This is Brother Ling Tian.”
After introducing Duan Ling Tian to Dong Qiu, Martial Emperor Qiu Li, he explained to Duan Ling Tian, “Brother Ling Tian, this is Dong Qiu. He’s also a well-known Martial Emperor on Cloud Continent. His honorific title is Qiu Li, Martial Emperor Qiu Li.”
Upon hearing this, Duan Ling Tian nodded his head at Dong Qiu as a greeting.
However, Dong Qiu did not seem to have any intention of greeting him. Instead, he sized him up from top to bottom before saying nonchalantly, “Yang Hui, I thought he’s your new direct disciple… I didn’t think he would be a friend of yours.”
“Dong Qiu, although Brother Ling Tian is not my direct disciple, the reason he made a trip to the Hidden Fog Island this time is to represent our Ling Xuan Peak and join the Hidden Fog Martial Competition,” Yang Hui replied.
“Oh?” Yang Hui’s words began to rouse Dong Qiu’s interest. After studying him a little bit more, his eyes suddenly lit up. “Martial Emperor Stage?”
Duan Ling Tian nodded.
“Yang Hui, I originally thought only Zhou Di alone is at the Martial Emperor Stage among the ten people you brought from Ling Xuan Peak to join the Hidden Fog Martial Competition. I can’t believe you actually hid your light under the bushel and found another Martial Emperor,” Dong Qiu mused.
