Duan Ling Tian wanted to stop her, but he was already too late.
This little girl Xue Nai had always spoken her mind freely and would argue to the point of death.
“Little girl, watch out, misfortune comes from the mouth!” The azure clothed old man’s face sank slightly, and then he abruptly looked at Han Xue Nai with hid muddy eyes that flashed with killing intent.
“Misfortune comes from the mouth? Old goat, I’ll…” How could Han Xue Nai endure it when she heard the old man’s threats? She instantly lost her temper.
“Xue Nai!” Meanwhile, Duan Ling Tian stretched out his hand to grab Han Xue Nai’s hand, and then he lightly shook his head as he sent out a voice transmission. “There’s no need to behave badly like him… Moreover, this old fellow’s strength isn’t bad, once he enters the Sword Monarch’s Treasure and locates some treasures, we can seize it from him then.”
“Killing him now isn’t worth it.”
Duan Ling Tian’s words caused Han Xue Nai’s expression to ease up, and she grunted. “Old goat, out of respect for Big Brother Ling Tian, this Young Miss won’t fuss about it with you!”
At the same time, traces of an excited sheen appeared in Han Xue Nai’s eyes, and then she sent a voice transmission to Duan Ling Tian. “Big Brother Ling Tian, you’re right… Once this old goat finds a treasure, we’ll seize it from him and cause him to spit blood from anger before killing him!”
Han Xue Nai’s voice transmission caused Duan Ling Tian to feel a chill run down his spine, and he couldn’t help but mourn silently for the azure clothed old man.
This old fellow didn’t offend anyone else, yet dared offend this little devil.
“You!!” The old man’s expression went livid with anger from being scolded by a young girl around the age of 15 or 16, and his body trembled.
When he saw the old man beside him about to lose his temper, the nearby Dong Ming hurriedly stopped him. “Elder Hu, since this Young Miss has already compromised, there’s no need to continue fussing about it with him… Just let it go.”
“Hmph!” Elder Hu snorted coldly, and in the end, he listened to Dong Ming and didn’t flare up.
Duan Ling Tian glanced indifferently at the old man.
The old man’s cultivation was unable to escape before his Spiritual Force.
This old man was an existence at the eighth level of the Void Initiation Stage.
In terms of strength, he was comparable to the Tang Clan’s Grand Elder that had been sealed in ice by Han Xue Nai and died at Duan Ling Tian’s hands.
Meanwhile, the gorge returned to peace once more, whereas, the two middle aged man that stood at the side were now sizing up Duan Ling Tian and Han Xue Nai with eyes that revealed a strange sheen that was imperceptible.
It was unknown what they were thinking.
Whoosh! Whoosh! Whoosh!
Numerous figures descended down into the gorge from above.
It wasn’t long before the remaining five groups of people had arrived as appointed.
These people all came in groups of two.
Presently, when the other five groups of people appeared, they couldn’t help but be stunned when they saw the combination of Duan Ling Tian and Han Xue Nai.
“They’re possessors of jade swords as well?” In next to no time, there was someone that looked towards Duan Ling Tian and asked with a doubtful expression.
Duan Ling Tian didn’t say anything further, with a raise of his hand, he withdrew the jade sword that belonged to him from his Spatial Ring, and he waved about before the people that doubted him.
Instantly, all those people didn’t speak further.
“Young Man, if I were you, I’d have found a Senior to go to the Sword Monarch’s Treasure vault with me… You’re truly too rash.” A green clothed old man that was comparatively kindhearted shook his head and sighed.
The dangers of the Sword Monarch’s Treasure were something that no one was able to expect.
It was precisely because of this that no one dared look down upon the dangers within it.
The unknown was undoubtedly the most terrifying.
Under these circumstances, the stronger one’s strength was, the more chances one would have to survive and obtain the fortune that belonged to one’s self.
“Thank you for the reminder, Senior.” Duan Ling Tian smiled gratefully towards the old man’s reminder. “But Junior has a grasp of the situation, and I won’t trouble Senior to worry about me.”
“Have everyone else brought along their jade swords?” Meanwhile, another person withdrew his jade sword and asked the others.
For a time, the other seven groups of people withdrew their own respective jade swords and displayed it before everyone’s eyes.
The nine jade swords were gathered together.
Right at this moment.
“Eh?” Duan Ling Tian noticed that the jade sword in his hand had started to vibrate suddenly, and it was as if it was summoned and urgently wanted to escape his hands.
The jade swords of the other eight people were almost the same.
The nine jade swords were all trembling now, and every single jade sword pointed at the same place…
More precisely speaking, it was the same spot.
“According to legend, once the nine swords combine into one, they’ll transform into a completely new jade sword that would guide us to head towards the Sword Monarch’s Treasure!” Meanwhile, Dong Ming who held a jade sword spoke out. “Everyone, how about we allow the nine swords to combine into one now and search for the Sword Monarch’s Treasure?” As soon as Dong Ming finished speaking, he looked around towards the surroundings.
“I have no objections.” Duan Ling Tian shrugged with an indifferent expression.
“I have no objections either.”
“I have no objections.”
For a time, besides Dong Ming who put forward the suggestion, another five people who held jade swords in their hands shook their heads.
Including Duan Ling Tian and Dong Ming, a total of seven people agreed to directly allow the nine swords to combine into one and search for the Sword Monarch’s Treasure.
Only the remaining two people that held jade swords didn’t make their stands known.
One of them was precisely one of the two middle aged men in embroidered clothes that had arrived at the gorge long ago.
The other person was a short emaciated old man with a pair of crossed-eyes.
“Hmm?” Meanwhile, Duan Ling Tian noticed that the middle aged man in embroidered clothes and the emaciated old man suddenly looked at each other before looking at him at the same time.
More precisely speaking, they looked at him and Han Xue Nai who was beside him.
“What do the two of you want to do?!” Dong Ming’s face went slightly grim.
“It’s nothing… We just feel that some people don’t have the qualifications to hold jade swords. Why don’t they hand over the jade sword and give over two positions?” The middle aged man in embroidered clothes that held a jade sword looked at Duan Ling Tian as he shook his head.
It was as if he was speaking of a matter of no great importance.
“Exactly!” The emaciated old man that similarly held onto a jade sword nodded in agreement. “I still have a friend that’s at the Eastern Mulberry Empire’s Imperial City… I originally didn’t intend to bring him with me, but, since there are two more positions now, I intended to call him over now.”
“He’s an existence at the seventh level of the Void Initiation Stage, and if he enters the Sword Monarch’s Treasure with us, he would be of great help to us.” The emaciated old man’s words caused many people whose faces became grim to heave a sigh of relief.
Exactly, they knew nothing of the dangers within the Sword Monarch’s Treasure, but they could be sure of one thing, the stronger their strengths were, the higher their chances of surviving in there would be.
For a time, the gazes of most people descended onto Duan Ling Tian and Han Xue Nai.
Perhaps, in their eyes, if a violet clothed young man around the age of 25 and a yellow clothed young girl around the age of 15 or 16 were to enter the Sword Monarch’s Treasure, the young man and young girl would be of no help to them and would only be a burden to them.
But although the others thought in this way, they didn’t speak out, and they only watched coldly from the sidelines and allowed the situation to develop.
These people included Dong Ming as well.
After a short moment, Duan Ling Tian and Han Xue Nai were surrounded from four corners by the two middle aged men in embroidered clothes, the emaciated old man, and a grey clothed old woman.
These four pairs of gazes stared covetously at the jade sword in Duan Ling Tian’s hand.
“Kid, if you hand over the jade sword and leave right away… We can spare your life.”
“Exactly! So long as you hand over the jade sword and give up those two spots, then since there are no ill feelings between us, there’s no need for us to make a move against you.”
“Kid, if you’re sensible then put down the jade sword and f**k off!”
The four people looked at Duan Ling Tian and their words were filled with threats.
Within the gorge, a fight was about to break out.
Of course, there were also another five groups of people watching the show.
“Brother Ling Tian!” Dong Ming that stood in the distance frowned, he was slightly unable to continue watching this any longer, and he took a step forward and wanted to help Duan Ling Tian.
“Dong Ming!” Meanwhile, the azure clothed old man by Dong Ming’s side restrained him. “Don’t get involved in this situation! Otherwise, I won’t forgive you.”
Dong Ming’s figure stiffened, and then he glanced at Duan Ling Tian with a guilty gaze before sighing, and he withdrew his footstep in the end.
This scene was clearly noticed by Duan Ling Tian.
At the same time that warmth arose in his heart, he couldn’t help but feel slight rage…
Of course, this rage was directed towards the azure clothed old man.
“Brother Ling Tian, hand over the jade sword to them… No matter what the Sword Monarch’s Treasure contains, all of that is imaginary, and only your life is real and most important!” Dong Ming’s voice transmission sounded out by Duan Ling Tian’s ears.
Dong Ming wanted to persuade Duan Ling Tian to give up the jade sword and leave.
Duan Ling Tian naturally knew that Ding Ming meant well.
“No matter what, only you aroused the intention to help me and persuade me amongst all the people present… I, Duan Ling Tian, will remember this favor.” Duan Ling Tian nodded to Dong Ming, and then after speaking for a short while via voice transmission, he changed the topic. “But it isn’t any tom, dick, and harry who have the ability to seize the jade sword in my hand.”
Dong Ming was stunned.
It was difficult for him to imagine where exactly this young man got such great confidence from.
Even if his natural talent was any higher, a young man that looked to be around the age of 25 would at most be a martial artist that had just stepped into the Void Initiation Stage.
As for the other young girl that was around the age of 15 or 16, her ability to fly had already shocked him.
As far as he was concerned, the young girl was at most a genius martial artist that had just broken through to the Void Prying Stage.
“Kid, I’ll give you another five breaths of time to consider… At that time, if you still don’t put down the jade sword in your hand, then you and this little girl are dead!” The middle aged man in embroidered clothes that held a jade sword threatened with a stern voice.
“You’re extremely young and possess many more good years… There’s no need to throw away your life for a jade sword.” The emaciated old man had an expressionless face as he looked at Duan Ling Tian, and although his tone was flat, yet it contained killing intent concealed within.
Even though he was facing the threats of others, Duan Ling Tian’s expression was still calm as before, and it was as if his expression wouldn’t change even if Mount Tai collapsed before him.
Subsequently, Duan Ling Tian looked at Han Xue Nai who was beside him and asked with a smile. “Xue Nai, someone wants to seize our jade sword and seize out spots to enter the Sword Monarch’s Treasure… What do you think we should do?”
No one noticed that long before when the two middle aged men in embroidered clothes, the emaciated old man, and grey clothed old lady surrounded over, a sheen of excitement was faintly emitted from the depths of Han Xue Nai’s gaze.
