Chapter 316: Difficult Choice
Translator: KurazyTolanzuraytor Editor: Jay
Moreover, what did the young girl say earlier?
She seemed to have said that Little White and Little Black told Qing Nu that they were reluctant to leave him?
Although Little Black and Little White were slightly capable of understanding human speech and feelings, but if one were to say that they communicated with someone or spoke with someone, Duan Ling Tian wouldn’t believe it no matter what.
As a person that had merged with the lifetime memories of Rebirth Martial Emperor, Duan Ling Tian deeply knew that Nascent Soul Stage fierce beasts like the two little fellows would at most be capable of slightly understanding human speech and feelings, but it wasn’t at the point they could directly communicate with humans…
Unless, the one they faced wasn’t human!
And was instead a fierce beast.
Or perhaps, a demon beast!
“What the heck are you? Are you joking?” Duan Ling Tian looked at the yellow clothed young girl, Han Xue Nai, and frowned. “You said that Little White and Little Black spoke and communicated with Qing Nu? And said that they wanted to leave with you? Then ask them to tell me… You look to be quite young, but why did you learn to deceive others?”
In next to no time, Duan Ling Tian was stupefied.
He noticed that the young girl’s expression instantly changed, earlier she had a radiant smile on her face, but in this instant, she instead had eyes that contained tears that were about to drop, and her appearance seemed delicate and touching, making one feel tender and protective towards her.
A bad premonition arose within Duan Ling Tian’s heart.
“Wuwu…. Big Brother is bad, you bullied me. Xue Nai didn’t deceive you… Xue Nai didn’t deceive you…”
The young girl started crying, her tears seemed to flow unendingly, causing Duan Ling Tian to have a bitter smile on his face and was slightly flustered. “Alright, Xue Nai didn’t deceive me, didn’t deceive me. Big Brother won’t scold Xue Nai, don’t cry… Don’t cry.”
Unexpectedly, the moment Duan Ling Tian started to persuade her, the young girl started wailing, crying even louder than before.
Duan Ling Tian frowned, the young girl was crying so loudly, if there was someone on the peak of Megrez Peak, wouldn’t it be heard by someone?
Then isn’t a good thing.
“Xue Nai, don’t cry, be good… It’s Big Brother who’s at fault, Big Brother is sorry, ok?” Duan Ling Tian helplessly gave in, he really was helpless against this cute and mischievous young girl that cried instantly without any signs…
“Really?” The young girl temporarily stopped crying, and blinked her cheeky eyes that were filled with tears as she asked Duan Ling Tian.
“Really.” Duan Ling Tian helplessly nodded.
Duan Ling Tian regretted it in the next moment.
“Giggle…” The young girl wiped off her tears and giggled, her pair of cheeky eyes emitted a sense of cunning, without a sign of the tender appearance earlier that caused one to be protective towards her.
Duan Ling Tian smiled bitterly, as he knew he fell into her trap.
“Big Brother, what’s your name?” Xue Nai blinked her intelligent eyes as she asked Duan Ling Tian.
“I’m called Duan Ling Tian.” Duan Ling Tian slowly said.
“Duan Ling Tian?” Xue Nai started pondering like a little adult, then smiled like a flower when she came back to her senses, and the two dimple on her immature face were cute. “Xue Nai will call Big Brother as Big Brother Ling Tian from now on, OK? Big Brother Ling Tian… Big Brother Ling Tian… Hmmm, then it’s decided.”
How would Duan Ling Tian dare say no? He was truly afraid of the young girl’s skill in crying at a whim.
Even the actors in Duan Ling Tian’s previous life on earth would surely be unable to compare to her in crying.
“Truly a cry baby!” Of course, Duan Ling Tian only dared think like this in his heart, as if he were to say it out, he didn’t know what sort of consequences it would bring about.
“Xue Nai, you said earlier that Little Black and Little White spoke to Qing Nu? Qing Nu is really able to understand Little Black and Little White?” Duan Ling Tian recalled the matter from before, and the young girl spoke in an orderly fashion, not seeming to be lying.
“Big Brother Ling Tian, you’re going to say Xue Nai lied again?” A strand of mist once again appeared in Xue Nai’s cheeky eyes.
Assuming a manner that if Duan Ling Tian dared say yes, then she would start wailing again…
“No… Absolutely not!” Duan Ling Tian hurriedly waved his hand, the thing he was most unable to bear to see was a girl cry, and moreover it was such a cute and young girl that caused one to feel protective towards. “I only asked. If you’re unwilling to say then don’t.”
“Giggle.” The young girl giggled, then her eyes narrowed, curving into two crescents. “Big Brother Ling Tian, Qing Nu is different from us… We are humans, but she isn’t human. So she can communicate with Little Black and Little White.”
Duan Ling Tian couldn’t help but be stupefied when he heard the young girl. “Xue Nai, what do you mean by this?”
“Big Brother Ling Tian, you’re too stupid… Aiya, Big Brother Ling Tian is so stupid! Stupid to death! Qing Nu isn’t human, so she’s naturally a demon beast… Mmm, she ought to be able to be considered as a demon beast.” Xue Nai playfully nodded as her cheeky eyes revolved, and as she finished, her voice became lower and lower.
“Demon beast?” What the young girl said caused Duan Ling Tian to heave a sigh of relief, then smiled bitterly. “So it turns out that it’s a demon beast that’s following by your side… You called her Qing Nu, and I thought that she’s a servant of yours.”
Although he spoke like this, but Duan Ling Tian’s heart surged with waves of shock.
An existence that could be called a demon beast, even the weakest was an existence at the Void Prying Stage…
This young girl that didn’t have a shred of cultivation in his opinion, actually had a demon beast following by her side?
Who the heck is she!?
Having a demon beast following by her side, moreover that demon beast faithfully carried out its duty to follow by the side of a young girl without cultivation, it was obviously a demon beast that had been completely tamed.
In the Azure Forest Imperial Kingdom, a power that could tame a demon beast to this extent could be counted with a single hand.
“Aiya, Big Brother Ling Tian, let Little Black and Little White follow me and Qing Nu and leave… Look at them, they followed Qing Nu and cultivated for a period of time and had already broken through two levels. If they were to follow Qing Nu and leave, their cultivation would surely advance even quicker.” Xue Nai had a face full of anticipation as she looked at Duan Ling Tian, then seeming to have thought of something, she giggled. “Big Brother Ling Tian, if you’re reluctant to part with Little Black and Little White, then follow us. Xue Nai is so bored, as I normally don’t have anyone to accompany me to play…”
As she finished speaking, Xue Nai extended her hand to hold on to Duan Ling Tian’s arm, then lightly swayed it, and her intelligent eyes were once again covered in a layer of mist.
Duan Ling Tian smiled helplessly.
Now that he knew the Qing Nu that Xue Nai mentioned was a demon beast, he knew that what Xue Nai said earlier wasn’t a lie.
He took a deep breath and looked at the two little pythons as he lightly asked. “Little Black, Little White… You two little fellows really want to follow Xue Nai and Qing Nu to leave?”
“Hiss hiss~” The two little pythons flicked their tongues, and their eyes revealed traces of reluctance, but they still nodded.
Duan Ling Tian forcefully endured his surging mood as he took a breath and closed his eyes.
After a long time, Duan Ling Tian once again opened his eyes and nodded heavily. “I understand.”
At this moment, Duan Ling Tian’s eyes seemed slightly wet.
In his heart, he’d made an extremely difficult choice.
Even though the two little fellows were only fierce beasts, but during these few years of being together, he’d long since taken the two little fellows to be like his own children…
Now that they wanted to leave, Duan Ling Tian naturally was reluctant.
But Duan Ling Tian also understood that if the two little fellows were to follow him, the advancement of their cultivations would surely be inferior to if they followed a demon beast…
Even though he possessed the lifetime worth of memories of the Rebirth Martial Emperor, but he only possessed scanty knowledge towards the cultivation of demon beasts. Thus in terms of cultivating, he could only provide assistance like medicinal pills to the two little fellows.
And was utterly unable to help in any other things.
With his two lifetimes of experience, Duan Ling Tian deeply knew that is might not be a good thing to grasp on tightly and not let go of some matters or things.
The two little fellows had followed him for a few years, and he understood their temperament extremely well. If it wasn’t for them feeling they would have a better future from following by the side of Qing Nu, otherwise, they would absolutely not leave him.
“Big Brother Ling Tian.” The nearby Xue Nai seemed to have sensed Duan Ling Tian’s mood that had a sense of loss, and she said in a light voice. “Follow us as well.”
As she spoke, Xue Nai’s eyes revealed a trace of hope.
“I won’t be following all of you.” Duan Ling Tian shook his head then lightly smiled to Xue Nai. “Xue Nai, although I don’t know who you are, and I don’t know what type of demon beast that Qing Nu is… But, since Little Black and Little White want to leave with you two, I presume they have their own reason.
“They’ve made their decision, and I won’t stop them… I only hope that you and Qing Nu can be good to them in the future.” As he finished speaking, Duan Ling Tian sighed.
The two little pythons were currently like a kite in his hand…
If he didn’t let go, they would only fly that high forever.
But if he let go, they can fly even high, even flying up high to soar in the sky!
“Big Brother Ling Tian, Qing Nu is very good to Little Black and Little White… And I’m even better to them.” Xue Nai had a slight sense of loss when she heard Duan Ling Tian refusing to follow them, but she quickly rearranged her mood and nodded solemnly like a little adult.
“Hiss hiss~” Seeming to have realised that farewells were at hand, the two little pythons were slightly restless and uneasy as they stared at Duan Ling Tian. At the same time that their tails moved, their eyes rotated as well, seeming to be expressing some sort of feeling.
“You two want to say your farewells to Ke Er and Li Fei?” Duan Ling Tian asked slightly uncertainly.
“Hiss hiss~” The two little pythons ceaselessly nodded their small heads.
Duan Ling Tian lightly smiled, then stroked the small heads of the two little fellows. “Ke Er and Little Fei didn’t dote on the two of you for nothing… But, Ke Er hasn’t returned yet, so the two of you are temporarily unable to see her. As for Little Fei, never mind, I’ll tell her for the two of you.”
Duan Ling Tian let out a long breath of air, then raised his hand. “Go.”
“Hiss hiss~” The two little pythons once again glanced reluctantly at Duan Ling Tian, then flashed out to descend into Xue Nai’s hand.
“Let’s go.” Duan Ling Tian brought Xue Nai to the tilted tree, intending to bring Xue Nai along to ascend the peak of the mountain.
After all, Xue Nai was only an ordinary person.
This was what his sharp Spiritual Force told him…
But, Duan Ling Tian was completely dumbstruck in the next moment.
“Big Brother Ling Tian, I’ll bring Little Black and Little White to come look for you to play in the future… We’re going.” Xue Nai reluctantly waved her hand at Duan Ling Tian as she held onto the two little pythons, and directly stepped onto the air to rise and float mid-air.
Soaring in the sky to fly into the distance as she waved at Duan Ling Tian.
