Translator: EndlessFantasy Translation Editor: EndlessFantasy Translation
“Do you think you can stop me?” In the face of Duan Ling Tian who was blocking her, Chi Mei’s face was full of disdain.
“Hey! It’s better if you make way for us now… Even if there are ten of me, I’d still be no match for Elder Sister’s strength at all.” Perhaps because Duan Ling Tian was wearing purple, Zi’er was particularly fond of him, so right then as she held onto the unconscious Ke’er, she could not help but voice out to advise him too.
Of course, Duan Ling Tian knew that he would not be able to stop Chi Mei. Let alone Chi Mei, he could not even stop Zi’er by her side, so he instantly looked at Di Jue and challenged, “Di Jue, if you want to know how your son died, go snatch my wife back for me!”
“Boy, the promise we made just now didn’t include this!” Di Jue replied with a glum face.
“Then, I’ll add on to it now!” Duan Ling Tian said.
Taking a deep breath, Di Jue suppressed the anger in his heart before looking at Chi Mei and asked in a deep voice, “May I know who you are? Don’t you think it’s a little rude interrupting me without notice and spoiling my plans?”
Even though he dreaded Chi Mei, it did not mean that he was scared of her.
Although he seemed to be pushed by Duan Ling Tian to do something that was beyond him right now, he knew that he was also very annoyed by Chi Mei’s interruption.
“I know you’re a Five-clawed Golden Dragon, but even if your dragon Clan Leader is here today, don’t even think of stopping me, what more if it’s you!” Chi Mei cast a nonchalant glance at Di Jue and seemed to look down on him.
“What a brag! I really want to see just how powerful you really are!” Di Jue was not scared by Chi Mei’s words. With a smirk, the golden robe on his body fluttered as he was prepared to make his move on Chi Mei.
However, just as he was about to make his move and before he even realized what was happening, he already felt a sense of unparalleled majestic force charging at him and enveloping his entire being in just an instant. It shattered the True Energy that he had just mobilized easily like it was crushing dried leaves.
Along with a loud noise, Di Jue flew out and crashed into the mountain wall on one side of the valley, leaving behind a deep human-shaped pit.
Under the shocked stares of Duan Ling Tian and the rest, when Di Jue came out of the human-shaped pit, he no longer had the valiance he bore before anymore. There were many tear stains on his golden robe and he appeared to be miserable.
Feng Wu Dao and the rest who had seen how Di Jue made his move before were stunned into bafflement one after another.
Was this middle-aged man in golden robes really the man who had transformed Half Moon Island into ruins the last time? Was he the same man who could transform into a Five-clawed Golden Dragon?
They did not see any movement from the woman who looked exactly identical as Ke’er, but the golden-robed man was already sent flying away with a blast. Furthermore, he seemed to have suffered quite a major injury too.
Swish! Swish! Swish!
When Feng Wu Dao and the rest looked at Chi Mei once again, their eyes were filled with shock and dread.
Actually, it was not only them. Even Duan Ling Tian could not help but be stunned when he saw this scene in front of him.
Had Di Jue actually been injured to such a point with just a casual blow from Chi Mei?
Just how powerful was this Chi Mei actually?
At once, a sense of helplessness washed over Duan Ling Tian’s heart.
When Di Jue stared at Chi Mei with dread and terror in his eyes, she cast an indifferent glance at him and said, “I know that your dragon clan will always shield your own shortcomings. When you return to the dragon clan, you can tell your clansmen that the person who injured you is from the Fire Worship Sect. If they want to take revenge, they can come to the Fire Worship Sect, but of course, on the premise that they have the guts to do that.”
The Fire Worship Sect?
When Di Jue heard her words, his face went blank right away. It was obvious that he had never heard of this Fire Worship Sect before.
“As for you… I originally intended to kill you and put things right once and for all. However, for the sake of my sister and the child in her womb, I’ll spare your life! But you must know that the two of you are from two different worlds.” Chi Mei’s gaze shifted to Duan Ling Tian as she announced nonchalantly, “In addition, I want to remind you of one thing. It’s better if you forget about both of your pasts… Otherwise, what awaits you ahead will be an endless calamity! Well, of course, maybe you won’t be able to even live past today.”
Chi Mei cast a glance at Di Jue again. ‘I’ll bring my sister away. As for the things between you and him, I won’t interrupt at all.”
After she finished, without even waiting for Di Jue to reply, she disappeared without a sigh in just the blink of an eye.
It was also from this moment on that Chi Mei vanished forever from the Mountainshade Black Market branch of the Nine Sect Alliances’ district. In the end, she was forgotten eventually.
When Duan Ling Tian had just returned to her senses, the young girl in purple also brought the unconscious Ke’er away and disappeared without a trace.
Of course, Di Jue could still catch a trace of the purple-clad girl leaving. Only then did he realize that even this little servant by the black-clad woman’s side had a cultivation base that was not inferior to his.
“What exactly is this Fire Worship Sect?” Di Jue was very curious about this as well. He had already thought to himself how he was going to tell the clan leader of the dragon clan about this after he had solved this matter about his son.
“Ke’er, Ke’er…” Duan Ling Tian who had returned to his senses felt a sharp pang of pain in his heart.
Somehow, both of his palms were already clenched together and his nails were piercing through his palms. Fresh blood continued to gush out but he did not seem to feel anything at all.
At that moment, Duan Ling Tian only felt just how useless he was. He felt so useless that he could not even protect his own woman.
Not only could he not protect his own woman, but he also could not even protect himself now.
“Perhaps, it’s not entirely a bad thing for Ke’er to leave with her.” The moment he recalled how he was going to die at Di Jue’s hand today, having lost all hope, he seemed to have thought through it again.
From the way Chi Mei was treating Ke’er, she must treat her well. No matter what, Ke’er was her twin sister after all.
“Boy, it’s time for us to settle our matter now too.” Looking at Duan Ling Tian, Di Jue’s tone became much colder as though he wanted to vent his anger that he had suffered from Chi Mei on Duan Ling Tian.
“You’d better not play any tricks. Otherwise, they will all die!” Di Jue’s icy glance swept past Duan Ling Tian and the rest one by one.
Nevertheless, Feng Wu Dao and the rest, on the other hand, were not scared at all. Right now, they were looking at Duan Ling Tian with worry etched on their faces.
Even though they were not Duan Ling Tian, they could already guess that his mood right now must be terrible and if they were in his shoes instead, they would have long crumbled apart.
“Elder Huo, I’m sorry… I don’t think I’ll be able to help you leave this planet anymore. I really hope that you’ll be able to meet another person who came from Earth just like me. As long as he has obtained the recognition from the Seven Treasures Exquisite Pagoda, he’ll be able to help you leave then.” Gasping secretly to himself, Duan Ling Tian talked to Elder Huo in the Seven Treasures Exquisite Pagoda.
“What happened?” Elder Huo rarely looked at what was going on outside, so when he heard Duan Ling Tian’s Voice Transmission, he also realized that something was not right.
Duan Ling Tian told him the situation. “He’s just too powerful! Even if I unleash all of my techniques, it will still be impossible for me to go against him. Elder Huo, thanks for your help all this while. I’m sorry for letting you down.”
“This matter is indeed a little tricky. Still, it’s not that we’ve completely come to the end of the road, but we’ll need him to go along with this plan. However, will he be willing to play along with you?” Elder Huo pondered for a moment before telling Duan Ling Tian.
Then, he blurted his idea out.
“Why have I never thought of that? This idea could work!” When Duan Ling Tian head Elder Huo’s words, his heart gave a jolt as though he could see a glimmer of hope.
Now that he had a chance to live, of course, he would not miss it.
“Boy, didn’t you hear me?” Di Jue’s tone was impatient. If it had not been for the fact that he wanted to know about the truth of his son’s death, he would have long made his move already.
As a brilliance flashed across Duan Ling Tian’s eyes, he told Di Jue, “Follow me.”
The moment the words left his mouth, he flew out and sent a Voice Transmission to Feng Wu Dao and the rest, “Don’t follow me. Wait for me right here and I’ll come back as soon as possible! If I haven’t come back in three days, there’s no need to wait for me anymore. Just go wherever you like.”
In the end, Duan Ling Tian added the last two sentences just in case.
Even though he had faith in that method, he did not dare to say that it was absolutely fail-proof. What if Di Jue was not somebody who allowed himself to be pushed around?
When Feng Wu Dao and the rest heard Duan Ling Tian’s Voice Transmission, concern was etched on their faces right away, but they had no intention to disobey him. Instead, they started to wait in the valley.
“From Duan Ling Tian’s words, it seems like he has an idea to get out of this mess.” Chen Shao Shuai had a confused look on his face.
“It must be so. However, from his last two sentences that he added, he must not have 100% confidence.” Nangong Yi nodded. Worry was apparent in his eyes.
“Young Master will definitely come back safely!” Xiong Quan piped in with tearful eyes.
On the other side, Di Jue followed Duan Ling Tian to fly to the eastern side of the sea district. After a moment, he started to become impatient. “Boy, why do you want to bring me there for? Don’t tell me that you’re trying to play a trick on me!”
“Don’t you want to know how your son, Di Yong, died? Well, I’m bringing you there now. I was the one who told your son that time and it was also because of this that he used his blood essence as a reward to do this trade with me,” Duan Ling Tian explained.
Di Jue started to believe him. “What place is that?”
“A very mysterious place… However, after I entered that place with him, I didn’t dare to go in too deep and managed to come out in time. Now that I think about it, the fact that he told me he wanted to leave Half Moon Island to go to the Dao Martial Saint Land was most likely an excuse then,” Duan Ling Tian said, “I think he must have hidden the truth from me and went to that place alone so that he could take that treasure for himself. I suspect that he might have died inside there.”
When Duan Ling Tian was speaking, he was so smooth without missing any detail out, so Di Jue did not suspect anything at all.
Soon, with Duan Ling Tian guiding him, Di Jue reached a deep sea trench.
They entered the deep trench and reached the bottom.
“Wait a minute. It doesn’t look like it’s here…” Duan Ling Tian continued to move forward and turned around to make a U-turn again.
Frowning, Di Jue followed behind and demanded impatiently, “Didn’t you come here before? Why can’t you recognize the place now?”
