Chapter 456: Returning to the Crimson Sky Kingdom
Translator: KurazyTolanzuraytor Editor: Jay
On the vast ground, two young men with similar ages stood there, and a gloomy atmosphere arose involuntarily.
The two of them didn’t speak in tacit understanding.
After a short moment.
“Master, Master!!” One of the young men knelt on the ground and looked in the direction of the Seven Star Sword Sect as tears flowed down like the rain.
A man does not easily shed tears, only when his heart hasn’t been deeply hurt.
On the other side, Duan Ling Tian stood there and took a deep breath as unprecedented firmness arose within his eyes, and he vowed to himself as he gazed at the direction of the Seven Star Sword Sect. “Sect Leader, don’t worry… So long as I, Duan Ling Tian, am alive, I’ll surely wipe out the Azure Forest Tri-Sect!”
“Besides that, I’ll do my best to help Mo Yu rebuild the Seven Star Sword Sect!”
Subsequently, Duan Ling Tian closed his eyes, and numerous familiar figures appeared within his mind.
These were all the people he had a good relationship with in the Seven Star Sword Sect, and now they were probably all dead.
“I, Duan Ling Tian, vow with the Nine-Nine Heavenly Tribulation, that I’ll surely avenge all of you… If I go against this vow, then I’ll be executed by the heavens and the earth!” Duan Ling Tian suddenly raised his head and pinched open his index finger, then a drop of fresh blood tore through the sky and fused into the horizon.
Bang! Bang! Bang! Bang! Bang!
Nine ear piercing thunderclaps sounded out and witnessed the vow that Duan Ling Tian established.
Mo Yu knelt there, not moving even under the sounds of thunder, and his eyes were crimson red as if they were tainted with a layer of fresh blood.
Although he’d only taken Linghu Jin Hong as his master for a year, during this year, Linghu Jin Hong had fostered him wholeheartedly, and it caused him to feel heartfelt gratitude…
Even to the extent that he seemed to have already taken Linghu Jin Hong to be his father in his heart.
Now, it was very likely that his father had been killed.
Whereas he didn’t have the ability to take revenge for his father.
“AH!!” Mo Yu roared loudly into the sky, his roar was filled with extreme hatred, as if he wanted to destroy the boundless sky…
Duan Ling Tian walked over to Mo Yu’s side, then lightly patted Mo Yu’s shoulder. “Restrain your grief. We’ll take revenge for this enmity, sooner or later… What you have to do now is cultivate properly. In the future, the Seven Star Sword Sect will be relying on you to be rebuilt.”
Mo Yu’s body trembled, then he nodded earnestly. “Yes, Senior Brother Duan Ling Tian.”
“Squeak squeak~” The little gold mouse on Duan Ling Tian’s shoulder cried out twice. The slaughter on the top of Dubhe Peak in the Seven Star Sword Sect earlier had scared her to a certain extent.
Although the little gold mouse’s current strength wasn’t bad, compared to those existences that were at the Void Initiation Stage, she was still quite inferior.
“Big Brother Ling Tian, where’re we going now?” The little gold mouse’s voice transmission entered into Duan Ling Tian’s ears. “Those people are too bad, they actually caused us to be homeless… Hmph! Hmph! Once my strength surpasses them, I’ll surely make them pay and make them become homeless as well.”
“Making them homeless? That’s being too easy on them…” Duan Ling Tian shook his head and his eyes emitted dense killing intent as he spoke word for word. “I want them to turn into ashes!”
Turn into ashes!
Duan Ling Tian’s words contained extreme hatred mixed within, and it caused the little gold mouse and Mo Yu to be unable to refrain from shuddering.
“Little Gold, enlarge yourself and take me and Mo Yu out of this place,” Duan Ling Tian said to the little gold mouse.
“Squeak squeak~” Little Gold nodded lightly, then her tiny body trembled before instantly transforming into the size of a small hill.
After she broke through to the third level of the Void Prying Stage, the little gold mouse’s body had expanded once again and she was slightly larger than before.
In the past, she was around three meters tall, now, she was already almost four meters tall.
After her body enlarged, the little gold mouse’s back seemed exceptionally spacious, and it was more than enough to accommodate Duan Ling Tian and Mo Yu.
Along with the passage of time, Mo Yu’s tears were restrained and he buried his sorrow deep within his heart.
He knew clearly in his heart that it was exactly like Senior Brother Duan Ling Tian had said. What he had to do now was to work hard and cultivate, and avenge his Master and rebuild the Seven Star Sword Sect in the future.
“Master, don’t worry… I’ll surely rebuild the sect with Senior Brother Duan Ling Tian!” Mo Yu silently promised in his heart.
Mo Yu took a deep breath as he gazed at the enormous gold mouse beneath him, and he suppressed the shock in his heart.
As far as he was concerned, anything shocking that occurred on Duan Ling Tian was not worth being surprised over.
Senior Brother Duan Ling Tian himself was sufficiently shocking already.
“Big Brother Ling Tian, where’re we going?” The little gold mouse asked Duan Ling Tian via voice transmission.
“Little Gold, head south… I want to return to the Crimson Sky Kingdom.” Duan Ling Tian looked towards the south as he spoke.
The Crimson Sky Kingdom was his roots since he came to this world…
The people that were of great importance to him were there.
The little gold mouse’s figure turned and transformed into a gold bolt of lightning that flashed towards the south. Clouds and mist split open wherever she passed, and it was extremely alike to a ‘road in the skies.’
Duan Ling Tian sat on the back of the little gold mouse with a calm expression as he gazed at the boundless space in the distance, and it was unknown as to what he was thinking.
As for Mo Yu, he silently sat cross-legged on the little gold mouse’s back and cultivated, and he was completely immersed into his cultivation.
After the Seven Star Sword Sect encountered a tragic calamity, as the personal disciple of the Seven Star Sword Sect’s Leader, Linghu Jin Hong, Mo Yu similarly carried the heavy responsibility of rebuilding the sect like Duan Ling Tian.
When Duan Ling Tian left the Crimson Sky Kingdom that day and travelled by Ferghana Horse to head to the Seven Star Sword Sect, it had taken quite a long time.
Now, with the little gold mouse, who was a third level Void Prying Stage demon beast, travelling at full speed, it was only a few days before they entered into the territory of the Crimson Sky Kingdom.
“Over there!” Duan Ling Tian pointed towards the distance, guiding the little gold mouse.
That was precisely the location of the Crimson Sky Kingdom’s Imperial City…
“Mom, I’m home!” Duan Ling Tian had an unsmiling face for these past few days, yet now emitted a rare light smile.
It has been a few years, I wonder how mom is now…
Duan Ling Tian was anxious to return home as soon as possible.
After spending another day of time, Duan Ling Tian finally arrived outside the imperial city of the Crimson Sky Kingdom.
For the sake of not causing panic, Duan Ling Tian asked the little gold mouse to descend in a remote place outside the Imperial City, then he told Mo Yu to leap off with him.
The little gold mouse shrunk and descended onto Duan Ling Tian’s shoulder, the sized up the nearby city with interest. “Big Brother Ling Tian, this is the Imperial City of the Crimson Sky Kingdom?”
“Yes.” Duan Ling Tian nodded.
“Senior Brother Duan Ling Tian, this place is?” Mo Yu had a curious expression as he looked at the city before him.
He’d been cultivating on the little gold mouse’s back all throughout these past few days, and he completely didn’t know where the little gold mouse was flying towards.
But he could be sure of one thing, the place the little gold mouse went was surely the place Senior Brother Duan Ling Tian wanted to go to.
“This…can be considered to be my home.” Duan Ling Tian smiled, as the Crimson Sky Kingdom was his home to him.
“Home?” Mo Yu’s pupils constricted and said with a surprised expression, “Senior Brother Duan Ling Tian, I once heard someone mention that you’re from a subordinate Kingdom under the Azure Forest Imperial Kingdom… Could it be that it’s this place?”
“Exactly.” Duan Ling Tian nodded then brought along Mo Yu to head towards the Imperial City as he said, “This place is my home. This is the Crimson Sky Kingdom’s Imperial City, and my home is within it.”
To Duan Ling Tian, his home was where his mother was.
The only sense of belonging he had towards his home was his mother.
Only with his mother would he have a home.
To him, his mother was the most important person in this world.
Mo Yu nodded and curiously sized up the Imperial City before him.
“This place is the home of Senior Brother Duan Ling Tian… I wonder exactly what sort of place this is? It was actually able to produce a peerless genius like Senior Brother Duan Ling Tian!” Mo Yu’s heart was filled with curiosity and yearning.
Duan Ling Tian’s natural talent was extraordinary beyond all doubt.
After all, even at the moment the Seven Star Sword Sect was about to be annihilated, the three great Sect Leaders actually didn’t hesitate to kill two disciples with natural talent that was not bad for the sake of roping Duan Ling Tian in…
How extraordinary Duan Ling Tian was in the eyes of the three great Sect Leaders could be known from this.
Duan Ling Tian walked into the Imperial City, and his face emitted a wisp of a smile as he felt the atmosphere of the outer city.
A few years had passed, yet there wasn’t too great of a change in the outer city.
“Eh? Senior Brother Duan Ling Tian, your Crimson Sky Kingdom’s Imperial City has a city within the city?” Mo Yu asked in slight surprise as he looked at the tightly shut inner city gate when they arrived at the moat outside the inner city.
“Yes. That’s the inner city of my Crimson Sky Kingdom’s Imperial City… The inner court hasn’t opened yet at this time. Let’s go find a restaurant to have a meal first, and once we’re done, the inner city ought to be opened by then. At that time, we’ll enter the inner city.” Duan Ling Tian brought Mo Yu along to walk into a restaurant in the outer city, then saw at a place by the window that was able to look at the inner city’s gate.
Duan Ling Tian picked a few dishes, and they arrived in no time.
Under Duan Ling Tian’s invitation, Mo Yu picked up his bowl and chopsticks, and started eating with large gulps.
“Squeak squeak~” The little gold mouse wasn’t courteous in the slightest and completely cleaned a large pile of fried meat in next to no time.
At the same time that he ate, Duan Ling Tian kept his eyes and ears open, listening to the discussions of all the customers in the restaurant.
“I heard the Sun Ascent Kingdom’s ambassador has come with ill intentions… On the surface it’s a visit between friendly kingdoms, but in truth they instead want to suppress the prestige of our Crimson Sky Kingdom.”
“I heard as well. Supposedly, the Sun Ascent Kingdom’s ambassador brought along three of the most outstanding people in the younger generation of the Sun Ascent Kingdom… The strongest amongst them has even stepped into the first level of the Nascent Soul Stage!”
“The Divine Might Marquis Estate’s Junior Marquis, Nie Fen, is at the top amongst the younger generation of our Crimson Sky Kingdom. But the Junior Marquis’s cultivation seems to have only broken through to the ninth level of the Origin Core Stage a while back… I’m afraid he isn’t a match for the young genius of the Sun Ascent Kingdom.”
“Hmph! It’s said that the strongest young genius of the Sun Ascent Kingdom is much older than the Junior Marquis… Even if he defeats the Junior Marquis, that’s a victory relying on age, not ability!”
“Unfortunately, besides the Junior Marquis, there’s almost no figure in the younger generation of our Crimson Sky Kingdom to represent our Crimson Sky Kingdom.”
“There’s the Xiao Clan’s Xiao Yu and Xiao Xun. Besides that, the Imperial Family, Duan Clan, and Su Clan also possess a few people with good natural talent… But unfortunately, their ages are too young and their strength is insufficient to suppress the three young geniuses of the Sun Ascent Kingdom.”
A few customers that sat at a table nearby Duan Ling Tian discussed ceaselessly.
Sun Ascent Kingdom?
Duan Ling Tian’s brows lifted up when he heard their discussions.
