Duan Ling Tian’s figure flashed as he searched all around.
In the end, he noticed that there wasn’t a trace of the little gold mouse, and this caused him to feel rather helpless.
“I wonder where Little Gold is?” Duan Ling Tian was slightly worried.
Although he could confirm that the little gold mouse ought to have no been harmed by the sandstorm, but the hearts of men were dangerous. If Little Gold encountered other martial artists, it would be a potential danger to her.
It was fine if it was a weak martial artist, but he was afraid that Little Gold would encounter a formidable martial artist.
“Presently, I utterly don’t know what place this is.” Duan Ling Tian looked at his surroundings, and only a boundless desert entered his eyes, a desert whose bounds were too far for the eye to see.
He didn’t know from which direction did the sandstorm blow him from, nor did he know where the little gold mouse was blown to now.
“I’ll extend the area and look around the surroundings to see if I can find Little Gold’s tracks… If it’s really not possible, then I can only first leave this desert myself.” Duan Ling Tian had a plan in his heart.
Duan Ling Tian soared up into the sky with Origin Energy flashing beneath his legs, and his Origin Energy was accompanied by his Advanced Wind Force and Half-step Advanced Lightning Force as he flew out.
Even though his speed was inferior to the little gold mouse, it wasn’t slow in the slightest.
“Hmm?” It wasn’t long before Duan Ling Tian noticed there were people ahead.
In the distance, three black dots had appeared in the desert before Duan Ling Tian.
When he approached and took a look, it was a young girl that was a little over 20 and two middle aged men.
The woman wore beautiful clothes, and she obviously had an extraordinary background.
As for the two middle aged men, they wore similar clothes, and they were obviously the subordinates by the young girl’s side.
Presently, the three of them were fatigued from travel, and they were in an extremely sorry state.
“These three people were probably affected by the sandstorm as well.” Duan Ling Tian guessed in his heart.
“You… What do the both of you want to do?” Suddenly, Duan Ling Tian heard the sharp cry of the young girl.
Subsequently, he saw that the middle aged men who seemed to be subordinates had stopped the young girl from both front and back, and both of them revealed frenzied expressions.
“Both of you have gone mad!” The young girl had a livid expression that was extremely unsightly.
“We haven’t gone mad.” One of the middle aged men revealed a frenzied smile. “Second Young Miss, the Eldest Young Master usually doesn’t take us to be people… Although you never said it yourself, all of us know that you never took us to be people either!”
“Exactly! Today, the sandstorm can be considered to have fulfilled our wishes… We’ll kill you, Second Young Miss, today and seize all the wealth within your Spatial Ring, and from today onwards, we’ll go away to a faraway place!” The other middle aged man walked step by step towards the young girl, and his eyes revealed an unusual sheen.
“Perhaps, we don’t even have to go far away… We’ll say that we never saw Second Young Miss! The sandstorm broke us up from the Eldest Young Master. Who would know that we were with Second Young Miss?” The middle aged man before her spoke out again.
“You… Both of you… Don’t act recklessly! I can give both of you anything you want… So long as the both of you send me back, I can make my father and older brother reward both of you properly.”
“The wealth within my Spatial Ring is limited, I can make my father and older brother reward the both of you with even more!” The young girl said in panic.
“Second Young Miss, we aren’t three year old kids… We know that once we send you back, we’re dead for sure!”
“Second Young Miss, although we’re greedy, we wouldn’t joke around with our lives.”
The two middle aged men obviously didn’t believe the young girl, and they walked step by step closer to the young girl, and a saber appeared in their hands.
Origin Energy flickered on their sabers as 1,000 ancient mammoth silhouettes appeared in the sky above them…
“Two ninth level Void Prying Stage martial artists!” Duan Ling Tian looked down at the three people beneath his feet, and his brows raised.
As for that young girl, although she didn’t reveal her cultivation, Duan Ling Tian’s Spiritual Force stretched out and it still detected her cultivation at the first possible moment.
Seventh level of the Nascent Soul Stage.
Before these two middle aged men, she didn’t have the slightest ability to resist.
Saber lights flashed out from the sabers in the hands of both the middle aged men, and they attacked the young girl in unison.
Under the pincer attack of these two ninth level Nascent Soul Stage martial artists, the young girl’s expression went ghastly pale, and she even forgot to resist.
“Hmph!” Right at this moment, a cold snort sounded out from the horizon.
An enormous bang sounded out, the two middle aged men were directly blasted flying, and they had ghastly pale expressions as they spat out blood violently before falling to the ground in a sorry state.
They struggled to stand up, and their expressions were gloomy as they looked at the violet clothed youth that stood before the young girl.
“Who are you? Why are you interfering in our business?” One of the middle aged men asked in a low voice.
“Scram!” The person that lent a hand to the young girl was naturally Duan Ling Tian.
Although the young girl was unrelated to Duan Ling Tian, those two ruthless subordinates by her side aroused disgust in Duan Ling Tian.
So, he lent a hand.
Moreover, according to his guess, the young girl ought to be someone from the surroundings of the desert.
After all, it was impossible for a Nascent Soul Stage martial artist to rashly enter into the Darkhan Dynasty’s southern desert.
Presumable, the young girl knew the way in the desert, and she knew how to walk out of the desert in the shortest amount of time.
Walking out of the desert was the thing that Duan Ling Tian wanted to do the most right now.
When the two middle aged men heard Duan Ling Tian’s stern shout, their bodies trembled, and their eyes were filled with terror.
They didn’t dare hesitate, and they fled away in panic.
“Why didn’t you kill them?” Right at this moment, the questioning voice of the young girl sounded out by Duan Ling Tian’s ear.
The young girl’s voice was filled with unwillingness.
Duan Ling Tian glanced indifferently at the young girl. “I don’t have the duty to kill them for you… Besides that, this is the attitude you have towards the person that saved your life?”
Although the young girl’s appearance wasn’t bad, she was still quite inferior when compared with his fiancées, Ke Er and Li Fei.
The young girl’s face froze when she heard this.
“Thank you, benefactor.” The young girl took a deep breath and expressed her gratitude, yet a grim light was contained in the depths of her eyes.
Duan Ling Tian naturally noticed this.
“Looks like there was a reason why those two people wanted to kill young girl… I saved her, yet she’s still displeased towards me in her heart! Just because I didn’t kill those two subordinates?” At this moment, Duan Ling Tian didn’t have a favorable impression towards the young girl at all.
If it wasn’t for him wanting the young girl to bring him out of the desert, he would have probably left since long ago.
“Benefactor, I hope that you can protect me to leave the southern desert… So long as I return to my Clan, I’ll surely give you a generous reward as thanks!” The young girl looked at Duan Ling Tian and spoke slowly.
She was obviously afraid that the two middle aged men would return.
“Okay.” Duan Ling Tian nodded indifferently and didn’t refuse.
The young girl’s request just happened to conform with his intentions.
As for the generous reward she spoke of, he didn’t care about it.
When she saw Duan Ling Tian agreeing so readily, a wisp of disdain flashed imperceptibly in the depths of the young girl’s eyes.
Subsequently, Duan Ling Tian followed behind the young girl and headed forward with her.
In next to no time, Duan Ling Tian found out about the young girl’s earlier experience from her.
So it turned that the young girl was returning with her older brother from a city that was at the side of the southern desert a few days ago.
They had to pass through a corner of the southern desert to return home.
Unexpectedly, they’d encountered a sandstorm on the way, and it broke them up.
Duan Ling Tian had seen what had happened after that.
“Those two servants are ungrateful bastards! They eat from our Zhu Clan, yet dare arouse malicious intentions towards me, they truly deserve death.” When mentioning the two middle aged men, the young girl’s pretty face was filled with rage.
Duan Ling Tian listened silently, and his expression remained unchanged.
Five days later, under the lead of the young girl, Duan Ling Tian finally arrived at the edge of the desert.
An oasis appeared before Duan Ling Tian.
The young girl looked at Duan Ling Tian and said, “Duan Ling Tian, our Zhu Clan is in Abundance City that’s up ahead.”
Duan Ling Tian nodded.
During these past few days, he’d found out about the young girl’s identity.
She was the daughter from a well-known family.
“Our Zu Clan is a famous great Clan of Abundance City… This time, although you let those two servants go, but you saved me, after all. My father and older brought ought to not blame you,” Zhu Qing said to Duan Ling Tian.
Duan Ling Tian frowned.
Won’t blame me?
And it’s only an ought to?
The corners of Duan Ling Tian’s mouth curled into a cold smile.
Looks like this Zhu Qing had really taken the matter of him lending a hand to save her as a matter of course.
It wasn’t long before a medium sized city appeared before Duan Ling Tian’s eyes.
The reason this city was medium to him was that it was bigger than many of the cities that Duan Ling Tian had seen, yet it was smaller than many cities.
Duan Ling Tian followed behind Zhu Qing and walked into Abundance City.
In next to no time, the two of them arrived before an estate that occupied a vast area.
Duan Ling Tian’s gaze was sharp and with a glance, he’d seen the plaque that hung on the door to the estate…
“Second Young Miss!” Meanwhile, the two guards outside the Zhu Clan Estate’s door revealed a pleasantly surprised expression when they saw Zhu Qing.
“Second Young Miss, you’re finally returned… The Patriarch and Eldest Young Master almost went mad with anxiety during these past two days!” Said one of the guards.
Zhu Qing nodded and brought Duan Ling Tian along to walk into the Zhu Clan Estate.
At the Audience Hall of the Zhu Clan Estate, Duan Ling Tian saw the Zhu Clan’s Patriarch and the Zhu Clan’s Eldest Young Master.
“Father!” Zhu Qing threw herself into the Zhu Clan Patriarch’s embrace, and her tears dropped down like the rain. “Your daughter was almost unable to see Father again…” Zhu Qing emitted sobbing sounds as she spoke.
The Zhu Clan Patriarch’s face went gloomy. “Qing, exactly what happened?”
“Qing, was it this kid that bullied you?” The Zhu Clan’s Eldest Young Master looked at Duan Ling Tian instead, and his gaze revealed a cold light as he stared at Duan Ling Tian.
Duan Ling Tian frowned.
If he wanted to harm Zhu Qing, then at the instant he walked out of the desert and Zhu Qing had lost any value to him, he would have already killed Zhu Qing.
“Father, it was Wang Zhu and Li Gong… After the sandstorm broke me and Big Brother up, that Wang Zhu and Li Gong were at my side. They wanted to kill me and seize my Spatial Ring!” As she finished speaking, Zhu Qing’s tears dripped down to the ground.
“What?! Those two servants were so audacious?” The Zhu Clan’s Patriarch and Eldest Young Master had enraged expression.
The Zhu Clan’s Eldest Young Master’s eyes even shot out ghastly cold lights. “Damnable servants!”
“So in this way, it was he who saved you?” The Zhu Clan Patriarch looked at Duan Ling Tian with a calm gaze, and it was as if he wasn’t facing the person that had saved his daughter’s life, but more like he was facing a stranger.
“Yes.” Zhu Qing nodded.
“Did he kill that Wang Zhu and Li Gong for you?” The Zhu Clan Eldest Young Master asked.
Zhu Qing shook her head.
