Chapter 297: Returning to Alkaid Peak
Translator: KurazyTolanzuraytor Editor: Jay
Duan Ling Tian didn’t know how long he’d cultivated, and only until the medicinal effect of the Origin Strengthening Pill was completely absorbed did he slowly open his eyes and wake up.
“Hu.” Duan Ling Tian spat out a mouthful of foul air, and glanced at the cold stalactite cave then shook his head before walking out with large strides.
“I wonder how those two little fellows are now.” Duan Ling Tian stood atop the tilted tree and enjoyed the baptism of morning dew, and his gaze passed through the mist and cloud in the sky to gaze at the direction of the primeval forest.
His heart was always slightly not at ease due to the two little pythons.
“I’ll go see Little Fei and Ke Er… Little Fei ought to have broken through.” After returning to his sense, the corners of Duan Ling Tian’s mouth curled into a smile, and after he used his sharp Spiritual Force to sense the mountain peak for a while, he leaped up, then walked down the Megrez Peak.
In next to no time, he once again arrived at the vast platform that the Trade Hall was located on.
He’d only just arrived nearby the Trade Hall when he noticed a few gazes descending onto him, seeming to intentionally focus on him.
“Hmph!” A cold smile appeared on the corners of Duan Ling Tian’s mouth, if he didn’t guess wrongly, these people ought to be people that outer court elder, Zhao Lin, ordered to monitor him.
However, he didn’t mind, as all these people posed no threat to him.
“Hmm?” Suddenly, seeming to have noticed something, Duan Ling Tian gaze descended into the distance.
Now, a young man stood there, and was looking at Duan Ling Tian with a complicated gaze…
“Liu Yu?” Duan Ling Tian recognized this young man with a glance, it was precisely the outer court disciple that obstructed him nearby the Trade Hall and desired to help Zhao Lin forcefully seize that fictitious Muscle Meridian Rebirth Scroll in his possession.
This Liu Yu was a fifth level Origin Core Stage outer court disciple.
He still remembered that at that time, he straightforwardly asked to battle Liu Yu on the life and death arena when he was faced with Liu Yu who obstructed his way, and in the end, Liu Yu chose to shrink back.
Duan Ling Tian glanced deeply at Liu Yu, then turned around to walk towards the chain bridge and left with large strides.
Since the beginning till the end, he didn’t have the intention to pay any attention to Liu Yu.
Liu Yu stood on the spot and gazed at Duan Ling Tian who slowly went off into the distance, a bitter smiled appeared on the corners of his mouth, and his legs were like they were filled with lead, unable to move for an extremely long time.
“Luckily I didn’t agree to his life and death arena invitation that day… Otherwise, I would die for sure!” In these few days, he’d dreamt back to that day many times, and in those dreams, Liu Yu would dream the scene of Duan Ling Tian inviting him to battle on the life and death arena.
Every time, he would be scared awake!
Then his body would be covered in cold sweat.
When he recalled his choice that day, only now did he realize how wise his choice was…
Duan Ling Tian was even able to kill a sixth level Origin Core Stage outer court disciple, let alone he who is only a fifth level Origin Core Stage outer court disciple.
He could imagine how if he had ascended to the life and death arena with Duan Ling Tian that day, he would surely die without a doubt!
Duan Ling Tian was too terrifying!
The few Megrez Peak disciples that watched Duan Ling Tian leave gathered together.
“That Duan Ling Tian had gone on the chain bridge, who’s going to follow him?” One of the Megrez Peak disciples asked in a low voice.
For a moment, besides one of them being able to maintain his composure, the other few Megrez Peak disciples all lowered their heads.
Duan Ling Tian was an existence that was capable of killing a sixth level Origin Core Stage outer court disciple, they didn’t dare take the risk to follow him.
“I’ll go.” Before long, the Megrez Peak disciple with a composed expression spoke out to offer his service.
Duan Ling Tian had only just passed the chain bridge when he noticed a ‘tail’ behind him.
“It’s him again!” Duan Ling Tian’s sharp Spiritual Force allowed him to notice this person at the first possible moment, and it was precisely that Megrez Peak disciple that followed him the last time and was uncovered by him.
Duan Ling Tian’s eyes became cold and fierce.
This Megrez Peak disciple was actually still working for Zhao Lin?
Moreover, he still dares follow me?
Duan Ling Tian arrived at Dubhe Peak in next to no time, and wound around Dubhe Peak before quickly entering into a remote place.
Right when Duan Ling Tian prepared to conceal himself nearby and intended to play the same trick again to draw the Megrez Peak disciple out.
“Duan Ling Tian, I know you noticed me.” The Megrez Peak disciple walked forward a few steps, then said in a low voice. “I don’t have any other intentions for following you. I just want to warn you that Elder Zhao Lin has found another few people, and wants us to cooperate to track you… The other few people have gone to notify Elder Zhao Lin. Before long, Elder Zhao Lin will come to Dubhe Peak, take care.”
“Hmm?” Duan Ling Tian walked out slightly surprised, then looked at the Megrez Peak disciple. “Why are you helping me?”
The Megrez Peak disciple was slightly embarrassed. “You could have kill me yesterday, but you didn’t… I owe you my life.”
Duan Ling Tian glanced deeply at the Megrez Peak disciple. “What’s your name?”
“Huang Ji.” The Megrez Peak disciple hurriedly replied, he didn’t dare be slow.
Duan Ling Tian raised his hand, and 10,000 gold appeared on his hand. “Huang Ji, I presume you’re helping Zhao Lin do things for the sake of money… Now, I’ll give you 10,000 gold. In the future, if that Zhao Lin wants to follow me, then bring him to take a good circle around Seven Star Sword Sect. Give him a line of hope, then make him come back empty-handed.” As he spoke to this point, a trace of an evil smile appeared on the corners of Duan Ling Tian’s mouth.
Huang Ji happily received the 10,000 gold, and hurriedly agreed.
Since he’d gotten back his life from under the hands of Duan Ling Tian, resentment towards Zhao Lin had arose in his heart.
Now, he had an opportunity to make Zhao Lin suffer, and he even can obtain so much gold, so he naturally wouldn’t miss the opportunity.
“I hope you don’t disappoint me. Or else…” Now, Duan Ling Tian was akin to giving Huang Ji a piece of candy to eat, then giving Huang Ji a slap, and his tone was filled with a threatening intention.
“Don’t worry, I’ll surely do this thing well, and won’t disappoint you.” Huang Ji swore with all sincerity.
“Go.” Duan Ling Tian waved his head, and he left after Huang Ji left. In next to no time, he’d arrived at the chain bridge that led to Alkaid Peak, and then arrived at Alkaid Peak.
When Duan Ling Tian once again arrived at Elder Bi’s residence, he saw a young woman with a delicate and pretty appearance.
He’d met this young woman twice.
The first time was before the outer court disciples test, he’d seen this woman following behind Elder Bi.
The second time was at Alkaid Peak. At that time, she was following behind Elder Bi as well, and seemed to be a disciple of Elder Bi’s called Zuo Qing.
She could be considered to be Li Fei’s Senior Sister.
“Senior Sister Zuo Qing.” Duan Ling Tian lightly smiled as he greeted the woman. Since she was Little Fei’s Senior Sister, then she was naturally his Senior Sister as well.
“Duan Ling Tian.” A smile appeared on Zuo Qing’s face when she saw Duan Ling Tian. “You came to look for Junior Sister right?”
“Yes.” Duan Ling Tian nodded with a light smile.
“I’ll go get her.” Zuo Qing turned around and left, and it wasn’t long before she once again returned, this time with a young woman that had an extremely beautiful appearance that could be called peerless.
The woman had a face like an angel, body like a demon, and caused anyone who glanced over to be unable to refrain from having their imaginations go wild, having a desire to push her down and ravage her.
“Scoundrel!” The woman saw Duan Ling Tian, and her watery beautiful eyes lit up, then threw herself towards Duan Ling Tian.
Duan Ling Tian only felt a fragrant wind assail his nostrils, and softness entered his embrace, he slightly smiled as he took the woman that threw herself at him into his arms. “Little Fei, it has been nearly three months since we’ve seen each other…”
Li Fei lightly nodded, and buried her head in Duan Ling Tian’s strong chest, unwilling to raise her head for a long time.
Duan Ling Tian stretched out his hand to stroke Li Fei’s smooth back, and traces of a warm smile appeared on his face.
Zuo Qing glanced at Li Fei with admiration when she saw this scene, the turned and left.
She knew that this moment only belonged to this pair of little lovers.
She felt happy for her Junior Sister, as if a woman was able to find a man like Duan Ling Tian in their lifetime, then they wouldn’t have lived in vain.
For a moment, only Duan Ling Tian and Li Fei who quietly embraced each other remained within the entire vast gorge.
“Little Fei, Elder Bi isn’t here right?” Duan Ling Tian’s mouth nestled up to Li Fei’s earlobe, and lightly blew upon them.
Li Fei’s delicate figure trembled, and seeming to have realized something, she lightly shook her head. “Master had something to do and went out.”
Duan Ling Tian’s lower regions went hot when he heard Li Fei, and he breathed heavily as he extended his hand to hold Li Fei up in his arms, then directly rushed into the wooden house that Li Fei stayed in.
The young man and woman who hadn’t seen each other some a long time, claimed each other to their hearts content…
After the storm stopped, Duan Ling Tian embraced Li Fei who had a satisfied expression and lay on his shoulder. “Little Fei, when I came the last time, Elder Bi said you were at the critical juncture of breaking through… You seem to have broken through?”
The angelic face of Li Fei who had a face full of happiness now went rosy, and she lightly nodded. “Yes, I’ve broken through.”
“Have you seen Ke Er lately?” Duan Ling Tian thought of the delicate and touching woman that always stayed by his side, and his voice was gentle like water.
“Little Sister Ke Er followed the Peak Master and went for a distant travel… She came to look for me, and we both went to Megrez Peak, but no Megrez Peak disciple knows where you live. So, she left with her disappointment.” Li Fei extended her jade-like hand and placed her slender and smooth finger on Duan Ling Tian’s chest, then lightly moved her finger around.
Duan Ling Tian nodded.
Ke Er had the protection of the Alkaid Peak’s Peak Master by her side, so he wasn’t worried of Ke Er’s safety.
Li Fei looked curiously at Duan Ling Tian. “Scoundrel, where do you actually live? I and Ke Er asked tens of Megrez Peak disciples, but there actually isn’t a single person who knows where you ordinarily stay.”
Duan Ling Tian shook his head and smile. “Not to mention Megrez Peak disciples, even the Peak Master of Megrez Peak or the Sect Master of the Seven Star Sword Sect, it would be impossible for them to know the place I’m staying at.”
Li Fei’s beautiful face had a sense of curiosity when she heard Duan Ling Tian.
Duan Ling Tian naturally didn’t hide anything from Li Fei, and slowly spoke of the matter of discovering the stalactite cave that day.
“So it turns out that the 10,000 Year Stalactite Milk you gave me and Little Sister Ke Er comes from there… Scoundrel, your luck is really too good, right? Even that sort of place could be found by you. If the Seven Star Sword Sect higher-ups were to know of this matter, wouldn’t they be angered to death by you?” Li Fei couldn’t refrain from sighing with emotion, and as she finished, her peerlessly beautiful face had a slight smile.
“Yeah, my luck isn’t bad.” Duan Ling Tian nodded, and when he spoke of the stalactite cave, he couldn’t help but think of the two little pythons. He wondered where they were now, and what they were doing.
