His sword swept out, blasting away the saber in the bandit leader’s hand, then entered into the chest of the bandit leader as if cutting through dry leaves.
In the next moment, Duan Ling Tian’s terrifying Quake Energy swept out.
“Ah!!” The bandit leader emitted a shrill cry that tore through the sky, then it stopped abruptly and his entire body crashed onto the ground as if without bones, without a sign of life any longer.
“Big Brother!” The bandits that were third and fourth in command were dealing with the little gold mouse and unintentionally looked over. Their eyes seemed as if they were splitting as they roared sorrowfully at the same time.
“Brothers, kill this damnable mouse and avenge the leader!” The last two bandit’s that were in command shouted out explosively, and their eyes were completely red.
The eyes of the remaining ten plus bandits went red.
“Little Gold, stop playing around. Finish them, we should return to the Seven Star Sword Sect already.” Right at this moment, Duan Ling Tian’s calm voice that contained traces of Origin Energy overwhelmed the voices of the other bandits.
Stop playing around?
The hearts of all the bandits jumped when they heard Duan Ling Tian.
This gold colored little mouse is playing with them?
In the next moment, they found out the answer.
The little gold mouse that fled about under their combined attacks had suddenly transformed into an incomparably swift gold light, and a tiny milky white sword light was carried at the front of the gold light.
In the sky, 2,800 ancient mammoth silhouettes condensed into form.
“Second level Void Prying Stage!” The bandit’s third in command was ghastly pale as he shouted out in shock. This shout was bound to be the last time he spoke in this lifetime, because that incomparably swift gold light had already carried along the milky white sword light and pierced through his chest.
Everywhere the gold light and the milky white sword light passed, all the bandits died without exception.
In the blink of an eyes, the waves of sorrowful cried in despair had stopped abruptly, and this area had completely returned to peace.
“Hehe… Big Brother Ling Tian, I’m done.” The little gold mouse held the pocket-sized spirit sword as she flashed out to descend onto Duan Ling Tian’s shoulder, and her voice transmission had no lack of an intention to take credit.
“You were too slow, I thought your speed would be faster than me.” Duan Ling Tian glared at the little gold mouse.
“Hmph! Hmph! I was only teasing them earlier…” The little gold mouse’s voice transmission was filled with the feeling of being not resigned.
“I didn’t ask you to tease them.” Duan Ling Tian rolled his eyes at the little gold mouse, then said, “Quickly become big, let’s return to the Azure Forest Imperial Kingdom!”
Although the little gold mouse was unwilling, she still obediently became large like a small hill and carried Duan Ling Tian to rise into the sky before heading south.
“Little Gold, I’ll use all of my time on cultivating during this period of time… You’re able to find the way back by yourself, right?” Duan Ling Tian had a doubtful expression as he gazed at the enlarged little gold mouse.
“Yes.” The little gold mouse’s voice transmission was filled with confidence.
“Okay.” Duan Ling Tian nodded then sat cross-legged on the back of the little gold mouse, and his mind was completely immersed in cultivating.
Nine Dragons War Sovereign Technique, Wind Wyrm Form!
Presently, only half a month remained from the two year agreement with Zither Young Master…
It was imminent!
Duan Ling Tian hoped that he would be able to smoothly break through to the seventh level of the Nascent Soul Stage within this half month of time.
But, the sixth level of the Nascent Soul Stage and the seventh level of the Nascent Soul Stage was a divide, and it was probably difficult for Duan Ling Tian who had just broken through to the sixth level of the Nascent Soul Stage for over three months to break through to the seventh level of the Nascent Soul Stage within half a month…
Although Duan Ling Tian knew this, he still had to try his best!
No matter what the outcome was, he would still go all out…
In this way, he would have no regrets.
Duan Ling Tian cultivated for seven or eight days before awakening, and he asked in wonder. “Little Gold, where are we now?”
“Big… Big Brother Ling Tian, you’re finally awake. I… I think I’m lost…” The little gold mouse’s voice transmission was slightly embarrassed.
“You…” Duan Ling Tian was completely speechless. “Didn’t you say you were able to find the way home?”
Duan Ling Tian was completely helpless against the little gold mouse’s lack of a sense of direction.
“You go find a city now, we’ll go ask the way,” Duan Ling Tian said to the little gold mouse.
Finally, after half a day, the man and mouse pair appeared in the sky above a city.
After descending from the sky, Duan Ling Tian brought along the little gold mouse that had shrunk to enter into the city and ask for directions, and he finally knew that his current location was at the northeast area of the Azure Forest Imperial Kingdom…
In the following period of time, Duan Ling Tian didn’t dare cultivate again.
If the little gold mouse were to get lost again, then he would really be unable to make it in time.
“There’s another seven days to the two year agreement!” Duan Ling Tian sat on the little gold mouse’s back and directed her, and bright lights flickered in his eyes as he looked ahead.
“Unfortunately… It’s probably difficult for my cultivation to break through to the seventh level of the Nascent Soul Stage in a short period of time.” Duan Ling Tian sighed to himself.
Finally, under the direction of Duan Ling Tian, the little gold mouse travelled at full speed and eventually arrived at the Seven Star Sword Sect six days later.
“Seven Star Sword Sect, I’m back!” Duan Ling Tian’s face revealed a slight smile as he gazed at the seven sword peaks before him.
“Little Gold, go to Alkaid Hall!” After leaving the Seven Star Sword Sect for over a year, Duan Ling Tian was anxious to return home, and what he thought about the most in his heart was still Ke Er and Li Fei.
His two fiancées had become a part of his life since long ago, and it was difficult to part with them.
But when Duan Ling Tian and the little gold mouse descended outside Alkaid Peak, they instead noticed that Alkaid Hall was completely empty.
Even to the extent that there was a layer of dust on the pavilion of Alkaid Hall.
“Could it be that Ke Er and Peak Master Qin Xiang went on a long journey?” Duan Ling Tian thought in his heart.
Duan Ling Tian left Alkaid Hall with the little gold mouse and intended to go to Alkaid Peak to look for Li Fei.
When he passed Mizar Hall after leaving Alkaid Hall.
“Junior Brother Duan Ling Tian!” A familiar voice sounded out by Duan Ling Tian’s ears, and Duan Ling Tian turned around to notice a familiar figure.
“Senior Brother Zheng Song!” Duan Ling Tian lightly smiled as he greeted the young man before him, as this young man was none other than the son of the Mizar Peak’s Master, Zheng Song, and one of few friends he had a good relationship with in the Seven Star Sword Sect.
“Senior Brother Zheng Song, congratulations!” Duan Ling Tian’s Spiritual Force extended out, and he noticed that Zheng Song had already broken through to the fifth level of the Nascent Soul Stage.
“No wonder Junior Brother Mo Yu said your eyes are like torches. Now it would seem that it really is so… You’ve only just returned and were able to discern that I’ve broken through with a single glance. However, it’s all thanks to the Profound Nascent Pill you gave me that day that I was able to break through. If I didn’t have that Profound Nascent Pill, then I’m afraid it would temporarily be difficult for me to break through.” As Zheng Song finished speaking, he had a grateful expression. “Junior Brother Duan Ling Tian, thank you.”
The Profound Nascent Pill was precisely the extra prize that Duan Ling Tian obtained for seizing the first in the Martial Competition of the five great sects.
It was useless to him, Ke Er, and Li Fei, so he made use of the opportunity to gift it to Zheng Song.
Duan Ling Tian shook his head and smiled, then asked. “Right, Senior Brother Zheng Song, I went to Alkaid Hall earlier and I noticed that Peak Master Qin Xiang seems to have gone out?”
Zheng Song frowned. “I’m not too clear about this. I only heart that is seems that someone come to look for Peak Master Qin Xiang, then Peak Master Qin Xiang brought along her personal disciple and the personal disciple of Elder Bi with her as she left… My Father knows about this matter more clearly, go ask him yourself.”
Elder Bi’s personal disciple?
Could it be Little Fei?
Duan Ling Tian’s brows raised as he thought in his heart.
Under Zheng Song’s lead, Duan Ling Tian met Zheng Fan in the pavilion on Mizar Hall. “Peak Master Zheng Fan.”
“Duan Ling Tian, you’ve finally returned…” Zheng Fan heaved a sigh of relief when he saw Duan Ling Tian.
“Peak Master Zheng Fan, you’re…?” Duan Ling Tian was stunned.
“Duan Ling Tian, there’s something you don’t know. Nine months ago, my Father carried out the Sect Leader’s orders and headed to the Ancient City of Everlast to protect your safety… But, when he arrived at the Ancient City of Everlast, only then did he find out about the news of your departure from the two external affairs elders in the Ancient River Trading Company’s branch,” said the nearby Zheng Song.
“Hmm?” Duan Ling Tian was surprised, and warmth arose in his heart. “Thank you for you concern, Peak Master Zheng Fan.”
“It’s good that you’ve returned safely.” Zheng Fan made tea as he nodded.
“Peak Master Zheng Fan, Peak Master Qin Xiang has left?” Duan Ling Tian asked curiously.
“Exactly, Peak Master Qin Xiang and her personal disciple Ke Er, and the personal disciple of Elder Bi, Li Fei, left nine months ago… According to the Sect Leader, they’d gone to congratulate the sister of Peak Master Qin Xiang on her birthday.” Zheng Fan nodded and spoke slowly.
“Nine months ago? And they haven’t returned yet?” Duan Ling Tian was stunned as he never expected Ke Er and Li Fei had left so early.
“According to the Sect Leader, the place they’re going is extremely far… To and fro would probably require spending over a year,” said Zheng Fan.
Duan Ling Tian nodded.
He was extremely at ease with Qin Xiang by Ke Er and Li Fei’s side.
Subsequently, Duan Ling Tian, Zheng Fan, and Zheng Song started chatting as they drank tea.
“Junior Brother Duan Ling Tian, where did you go gain experience and temper yourself during this period of time?” Zheng Song asked curiously.
“Darkstone Empire.” Duan Ling Tian lightly smiled.
“You actually went to Darkstone Empire?” Zheng Fan was surprised. “Until what stage has your cultivation broken through to?”
“The sixth level of the Nascent Soul Stage.” Duan Ling Tian didn’t conceal it and spoke of his true cultivation.
Sixth level of the Nascent Soul Stage?
As soon Duan Ling Tian finished speaking, Zheng Fan and Zheng Song’s face that were covered in an expression of anticipation had instantly crumbled.
“Duan Ling Tian, you… Your cultivation ought to be inferior to the Zither Young Master, Zi Shang, right? The two year agreement between you and Zither Young Master is on the day after tomorrow, and with his temper he would surely come.” Zheng Fan frowned. “Or else, why don’t you not attend the fight tomorrow?”
“Exactly, even if you don’t attend the fight, no one would say anything… After all, the Zither Young Master’s age was much greater than yours. You just have to endure patiently for another year or two. With your natural talent, you’d be able to easily crush him at that time,” Zheng Song said in agreement.
“Peak Master Zheng Fan, Senior Brother Zheng Song… I know both of you mean well. But I’ve already decided on this matter.” Duan Ling Tian smiled gratefully, and his gaze gradually became firm.
“Both of you were present that day when the Zither Young Master set the two year agreement with me, and I personally agreed to this… Since I’ve agreed, then I won’t go back on my word!”
