Translator: EndlessFantasy Translation Editor: EndlessFantasy Translation
When Duan Ling Tian had arranged everything and was ready to bring the two ladies and Han Xue Nai to leave Half Moon Island and head to the Dao Martial Saint Land, Li Fei came to him.
“Scoundrel, I would like to stay back,” Li Fei said to Duan Ling Tian hesitantly as she bit her lip softly.
“Why? You don’t want to go to the Dao Martial Saint Land?” Duan Ling Tian asked, puzzled.
“Powerhouses are everywhere on the Dao Martial Saint Land. Let’s not talk about me, it’s dangerous even for you… I don’t want to burden you,” Li Fei said slowly after she took a deep breath, “Also, Ling Tian Sect shouldn’t be without a leader… I want to stay back and take care of Ling Tian Sect for you.”
She was unwilling to be separated from her man. However, she tried her best to stay rational. That was why she had said something like that.
“Young Master, I would like to stay as well,” Ke’er said before Duan Ling Tian even managed to respond to Li Fei.
Similar to Li Fei, she did not want to burden Duan Ling Tian and slow him down.
No matter if it was Ke’er or Li Fei, both of them had to face the facts that it was impossible for them to possess strength equivalent or stronger than Duan Ling Tian that would allow them to stay by his side and help him. Therefore, they had decided to stay and take care of Ling Tian Sect for him. By doing this, it could be considered as them sharing their man’s burden.
“Sister Fei’er, Sister Ke’er… You don’t have to do that. You’re welcome to stay at my place if you’re worried you’ll hold Duan Ling Tian back. My house is very safe,” Han Xue Nai said to the two ladies as soon as Ke’er finished speaking.
“Xue Nai, I know you’re saying this with good intention. However, what’s the difference between staying at your place and staying on Half Moon Island? Furthermore, I can help take care of Ling Tian Sect if I stay on Half Moon Island,” Li Fei said with a smile. However, there was a hint of unwillingness in the depth of her eyes.
“That’s true. Moreover, Little Gold, Little Black, and Little White aren’t leaving just yet. They can keep us company,” Ke’er said with a nod.
Naturally, Duan Ling Tian was unwilling to let his two ladies stay back. “Ke’er, Little Fei’er… Didn’t both of you say you won’t ever leave me again?”
“Scoundrel, it’s different this time. Moreover, you can always come back and visit us anytime you want if Ke’er and I stay on Half Moon Island,” Li Fei said as she shook her head.
Ke’er nodded at Li Fei’s words.
Eventually, Duan Ling Tian had to compromise since there was no way he could change the two stubborn ladies’ minds.
However, they took a long time getting intimate with each other before he left.
He fulfilled the two ladies’ requests, planting a love seed in each in of their bodies… Their love seeds would blossom and bear fruits ten months later.
“I’ll definitely come back when the children are born,” Duan Ling Tian promised the two ladies before they parted way.
“Scoundrel, don’t worry about Ke’er and me when you’re at the Dao Martial Saint Land… We’ll take good care of ourselves. We’re very safe with Little Gold, Little Black, and Little White around,” Li Fei said.
“Young Master, Sister Fei’er and I will wait for your return…” Ke’er said to Duan Ling Tian with gleaming eyes.
Duan Ling Tian took a deep breath and looked at the two ladies fondly with a hint of unwillingness. He subsequently shifted his focus to the three little fellows and said solemnly, “Little Gold, Little Black, and Little White… Please take good care of your Sister Ke’er and Sister Fei’er.”
“Brother, don’t worry. I’m here, and I’ll take good care of Sister Ke’er and Sister Fei’er,” the little girl in gold said to Duan Ling Tian seriously.
“That’s right, brother. With me and Little White here, we won’t let anything happen to Sister Ke’er and Sister Fei’er,” Little Black said confidently.
“I believe in all of you.” Duan Ling Tian knew he could rely on the three little fellow’s abilities.
The three little fellow’s current strength was not inferior to the three Vice Island Masters of Half Moon Island at all.
Duan Ling Tian and Han Xue Nai left the two ladies and the three little fellows who looked unwilling to part ways with them. They soon disappeared before their eyes.
At this moment, tears were streaming down Ke’er and Li Fei’s beautiful faces. They tried their best to hold back their tears when Duan Ling Tian was around since they did not want him to see them cry. Now that he had left, they did not have to hold back anymore.
Meanwhile, Duan Ling Tian and Han Xue Nai traveled above the vast and boundless ocean on the north of Half Moon Island.
Duan Ling Tian was feeling a little down during the beginning of the journey. He gradually felt better after Han Xue Nai comforted him.
However, his emotions were stirred. The feeling was indescribable.
‘My two children will be born ten months later.’ This was the reason why Duan Ling Tian was feeling emotional.
He would have children soon. He would be a father soon.
‘No matter where I am… I’ll definitely return within ten months! I want to be with Ke’er and Little Fei’er to witness the arrival of the two little lives.’ Duan Ling Tian took a deep breath and made up his mind.
“Xue Nai, you left the Dao Martial Saint Land alone… Isn’t your father worried about you?” Duan Ling Tian asked as he looked at Han Xue Nai next to him.
He recalled whenever Han Xue Nai came to Cloud Continent in the past, she would have Qing Nu by her side… However, she came here on her own this time with the three little fellows.
“Brother Ling Tian, someone came with me when I left the Dao Martial Saint Land this time… But I made them wait near the ocean on the south of Dao Martial Saint Land,” Han Xue Nai said, “It’s very rare to see Saint Rudiment Stage and Mortal Shedding Stage powerhouses on the journey to the Dao Martial Saint Land, let alone Saint Stage powerhouses… So there’s no need to worry about danger.”
“Furthermore, even if we encounter someone with ill intentions, unless it’s a Saint Stage powerhouse, I’m not afraid of them… Although Dao Talisman can’t kill them, it can still injure and restrain them,” Han Xue Nai said confidently.
Duan Ling Tian said, “I see.”
He just remembered Han Xue Nai had Dao Talismans with her… Only a handful of Dao Cultivators above the Saint Rudiment Stage could draw Dao Talismans.
“Xue Nai, with our current speed… How much longer do we need before we arrive at the Dao Martial Saint Land?” Duan Ling Tian asked curiously.
“Around half a month,” Han Xue Nai said.
“Half a month? It’ll take that long?” Duan Ling Tian was surprised when he heard this.
One must know he only needed a few days to travel from Half Moon Island to Cloud Continent with his current speed. However, they needed half a month to get to the Dao Martial Saint Land?
“Brother Ling Tian, I overheard the conversation between you, Sister Ke’er, and Sister Fei’er earlier. I heard you said you’ll return when the children are born before you parted ways… Are they pregnant?” Han Xue Nai asked playfully as she blinked her big and unique eyes.
“That’s right. They’re due ten months later.” Duan Ling Tian nodded joyfully.
“Ten months?” Han Xue Nai said with a smile when she heard Duan Ling Tian’s words, “Brother Ling Tian, who told you your kids will be born ten months later?”
“Isn’t it ten months? Pregnancy usually takes ten months. That’s general knowledge,” Duan Ling Tian said as if he knew what he was talking about, “Xue Nai, you wouldn’t know that since you’ve never given birth.”
“I wouldn’t know that because I’ve never given birth… Brother Ling Tian, do you mean… You know because you’ve given birth before?” Han Xue Nai mocked as she rolled her eyes at Duan Ling Tian.
“You mischievous thing… It’s possible that I’ve seen pigs running even though I’ve not tasted their meat before.” Duan Ling Tian smiled and shook his head.
Han Xue Nai’s smile turned even wider when she heard Duan Ling Tian’s words. She said confidently, “Brother Ling Tian, you’re still so confident that Sister Ke’er and Sister Fei’er will give birth after ten months… It’s obvious you’ve never seen a pig run.”
“Xue Nai, what are you trying to say?” Duan Ling Tian asked skeptically, frowning. The smile on his face had disappeared.
“Brother Ling Tian, being pregnant for ten months only applies to people under the Innate Stage… If both man and woman are above the Innate Stage, it’ll take at least a year before the child arrives,” Han Xue Nai explained, “Man and woman who had just broken through to the Innate Stage or the Void Prying Stage only give birth after a year of gestation.”
“The higher the cultivation of the couple, the later their child would be born… However, the later the child’s born, the more outstanding he or she would be.”
“It’s said they’re born later because they’re absorbing the Innate Origin Energy in their mother’s body… Therefore, the later the child’s born, the more remarkable their talent would be,” Han Xue Nai continued speaking, “With Brother Ling Tian, Sister Ke’er, and Sister Fei’er’s cultivation base… It’s impossible that your children will be born before three or five years.”
“Three to five years?” Duan Ling Tian’s jaw dropped when he heard Han Xue Nai’s words.
He had only heard of ten months of pregnancy, he had never heard of being pregnant for three to five years.
Was that something humans were capable of doing?
“Xue Nai, how do you know about all these?” Duan Ling Tian asked skeptically as he looked at Han Xue Nai. He could not figure out how a girl like her would know about such things.
“Brother Ling Tian, didn’t you say it yourself? It’s possible to have seen pigs running even if you’ve not tasted their meat before,” Han Xue Nai repeated Duan Ling Tian’s words back to him as he smiled wryly.
Eventually, he tried to confirm the matter again. “Xue Nai, are you sure what you said is true?”
Bang! Bang! Bang! Bang! Bang!
Han Xue Nai was about to respond when a loud explosion interrupted her.
An explosion disturbed the peaceful ocean beneath her and Duan Ling Tian as seawater splashed everywhere. It was as though a giant rock had been thrown into the sea.
Before Duan Ling Tian and Han Xue Nai managed to react, the rumbling ocean began to swirl suddenly, creating a powerful sucking force.
The force shrouded Duan Ling Tian and Han Xue Nai in just a blink of an eye.
At this moment, Duan Ling Tian felt an undefeatable strength covering his body as it pulled him down into the ocean.
Subsequently, he was engulfed by a whirlpool that appeared on the surface of the ocean.
