“Hiss!” Duan Ling Tian couldn’t help but gasp when he heard Han Xue Nai.
“Even though I hope the Little Gold, Little Black, and Little White have a better future… But if it requires them to bet their lives to obtain it, I’d rather be selfish and keep them by my side and not allow them to leave.” Duan Ling Tian looked at Qing Nu as he spoke, and his voice wasn’t loud yet was clear and resounding.
One could see Duan Ling Tian’s extreme resolution from this.
Now Duan Ling Tian was like a father that fully did his duty.
If his children wanted to go wander in the outside world, he wouldn’t stop them, but if his children were to have a slim chance of surviving their journey, they he would surely try his best to keep them from going.
In the world, so long as one was a parent, practically all parents would rather have their children live an ordinary life that be willing to allow any harm to come to their children.
Only a parent like this was a qualified parent.
“You’ve made up your mind?” As soon as Duan Ling Tian finished speaking, a short moment passed before Qing Nu asked once more.
“Yes.” Duan Ling Tian nodded positively, and he didn’t give any room for discussion.
“Could it be that you don’t want them to be able to help you even more once they become formidable? With their natural talent, no matter how great dangers test them, at least one or two of them will be able to survive… Even if only one of them survives, the help you would receive from a single one of them is immeasurable.” Qing Nu looked at Duan Ling Tian, and slowly spoke with a tone filled with temptation.
Qing Nu’s words were extremely simple. After the little gold mouse and the two little pythons entered that place, then even if only one of them is able to survive in the end, Duan Ling Tian would still benefit.
“Hmph!” Qing Nu had only just finished speaking when Duan Ling Tian’s expression went completely gloomy, and he said angrily, “Little Gold, Little Black, and Little White, any of their lives are priceless in my eyes, and nothing can replace them!”
“So, you don’t have to talk any more nonsense before me… No matter what, I won’t allow them to go risk their lives!” Duan Ling Tian’s tone was resolute and decisive, and without the slightest room for discussion.
If this azure clothed old lady wasn’t someone that followed by Xue Nai’s side, and if the azure clothed old lady’s strength wasn’t stronger than him… He would have directly slapped her on the face.!
But when Duan Ling Tian finished saying all this, he was instead stunned.
Because he saw Qing Nu smiling.
“Little Fellows, see? For the sake of your safety, he’d rather lose the assistance that would come from all of you… He chose like this all for the sake of you. Could it be that all of you don’t want to be able to help him more in the future?” Qing Nu looked at the little gold mouse and two little pythons, and her tone had no lack of encouragement. “It’s not that I look down on all of you… But with his fortuitous encounters, if all of you continue staying by his side, then all of you will sooner or later be thrown far off behind by him!
“At that time, all of you will become a burden for him and will be protected by him… Could it be that this is what all of you want to see in the future?” Qing Nu continued adding fuel to the fire.
“Hiss hiss~” The two little pythons that were coiled on Duan Ling Tian’s hand instantly became agitated, and they hurriedly swayed their small heads.
“Squeak~~” After the little gold mouse cried out sharply, she spoke with her childish voice. “Old hag, I don’t want to let Big Brother Ling Tian protect me… I want to protect Big Brother Ling Tian!”
“Do you have the strength?” Qing Nu laughed in ridicule, and then said in disdain, “Little Fellow, it’s not that I’m looking down on you… But you’re already not a match for him.”
The little gold mouse who was originally extremely agitated drooped her head and became dispirited when she heard this.
“Enough!” Duan Ling Tian and Han Xue Nai shouted out angrily at almost the exact same time.
Han Xue Nai had an ominous expression as she spoke first. “Qing Nu, I know that you have great hopes for them… But that place is truly too dangerous! I don’t agree in letting them go there.”
Qing Nu sighed and didn’t say anything further.
The reason she persisted wasn’t because she had any ill intentions, but she didn’t want these three little fellows that possessed potential to be buried in dust like this.
As a Demon that had experienced life and death there and lived to return, she could be sure that with the potential of the three little fellows, if they were able to survive that place, their cultivations would surely soar into the sky!
But since her Young Miss had spoken, it was naturally not good for her to persist.
“Big Brother, I want to go to that place with her!” Qing Nu had quieted down, yet the little gold mouse was discontent, and she spoke to Duan Ling Tian with her childish voice.
Her tone was firm and resolute.
“Little Gold, don’t be silly!” Duan Ling Tian glared angrily at the little gold mouse.
“Big Brother, I’m serious! I’ve discussed with Little Black and Little White, all of us want to go to that place! Once we come out from that place, we’ll come look for Big Brother… At that time, we’ll be able to help Big Brother more.” Little Gold continued with her childish voice.
With Little Black and Little White?
Didn’t they not get along?
For a time, Duan Ling Tian felt slightly depressed.
These three little fellows joining together was truly a cause for headache.
“There’s no need.” Duan Ling Tian shook his head and was unwilling to allow the three little fellows to risk their lives.
But the stubbornness of the three little fellows had completely exceeded his imagination, and they were unwilling to stay no matter what.
In the end, Duan Ling Tian was completely helpless.
At the same time, he was filled with displeasure towards Qing Nu.
“If it wasn’t for this old fellow’s constant instigation, these three little fellows wouldn’t have changed their minds…” Duan Ling Tian gnashed his teeth in hatred towards Qing Nu.
“If anything happens to the three little fellows in the future, then even if she’s someone that follows by Xue Nai’s side, I will still kill her! At that time, don’t blame me for not knowing how to respect elders.” Duan Ling Tian was enraged in his heart.
Duan Ling Tian didn’t doubt it in the slightest that he would be able to possess a strength that surpassed Qing Nu in the future.
Not to mention his extraordinary natural talent and the Concept Fragments and Profundity Fragments in his possession.
Just the great treasure the Rebirth Martial Emperor left in the Foreign Lands and the Rebirth Pill was sufficient to allow him to possess a cultivation speed that far surpassed ordinary people.
A wave of wind howls sounded out, and the little gold mouse had left Duan Ling Tian’s shoulder to arrive on Xue Nai’s shoulder.
The two little pythons were unwilling to lag behind, and they returned to Xue Nai’s wrist.
“Big Brother Ling Tian, don’t worry, I’ll take good care of Little Gold, Little Black, and Little White.” Now that it had come to this, Han Xue Nai didn’t know what to say as well, and she could only continuously console Duan Ling Tian.
Duan Ling Tian nodded and was slightly dispirited.
“Big Brother Ling Tian, we’ll be leaving first.” Han Xue Nai and the three little fellows bid their farewells to Duan Ling Tian.
Not only that, Han Xue Nai glanced at the Three-Eyed Flame Tiger before she left. “Big Guy, obediently send Big Brother Ling Tian to the Darkhan Dynasty’s Capital… If I find you that you weren’t obedient, I’ll surely freeze you into a popsicle again!”
“Aowu.” When he heard Han Xue Nai’s threat, the Three-Eyed Flame Tiger’s body lightly trembled.
But if one were to look carefully, one could notice that in the depths of the Three-Eyed Flame Tiger’s gaze was a slight sheen of excitement.
“I can finally be rid of this little devil!” The Three-Eyed Flame Tiger roared excitedly in his heart and was wild with joy.
Subsequently, Duan Ling Tian went onto the back of the Three-Eyed Flame Tiger and sent off Han Xue Nai and Qing Nu with his gaze.
The both of them also brought along the three little fellows.
“Little Gold, Little Black, Little White… All of you must be well.” When he saw Han Xue Nai vanish before his eyes, Duan Ling Tian silently prayed in his heart.
“Roar!” Instantly, the scene before Duan Ling Tian’s eyes swayed as the Three-Eyed Flame Tiger had flashed out while carrying him, and it headed towards the Capital.
All along the way, the Three-Eyed Flame Tiger roared ceaselessly in delight, and it caused Duan Ling Tian to be speechless.
Looks like this big fellow was really bullied by Xue Nai to the point of having a bellyful of depression.
Now, when Xue Nai had left, the depression in the Three-Eyed Flame Tiger had finally exploded out.
Duan Ling Tian shook his head and paid no further attention to the Three-Eyed Flame Tiger, and he directly sat down to cultivate.
Nine Dragons War Sovereign Technique, Earth Dragon Form!
Not long after, Duan Ling Tian have completely immersed his mind and body into his cultivation, and he seemed to have forgotten the time…
He only knew how to cultivate ceaselessly.
The Origin Energy in his body seemed to have transformed into a vast river that ceaselessly flowed through Duan Ling Tian’s meridians.
Duan Ling Tian’s cultivation was increase at every moment and every second.
The Three-Eyed Flame Tiger had quickly sent Duan Ling Tian back to the Darkhan Dynasty’s Capital, and Duan Ling Tian returned to the courtyard that the Darkstone Empire had purchased in the Darkhan Dynasty.
“Duan Ling Tian!” Duan Ling Tian had only just entered the courtyard when he heard someone calling out to him from behind.
When he turned around to look, he saw who was calling him with a single glance.
“Su Li? You went out as well?” The person that stopped Duan Ling Tian was none other than Su Li.
At this moment, Su Li had obviously just returned from somewhere outside.
“I casually went around.” Su Li lightly smiled.
Duan Ling Tian nodded, and then thought in his heart. “I’ve gone out for a few months this time, I wonder what changes have occurred to Su Li’s cultivation?”
When he thought up to here, Duan Ling Tian’s Spiritual Force silently stretched out to envelop Su Li.
At the first possible moment, it had detected Su Li’s cultivation.
“This… How can this be possible?!” At practically the instant that his Spiritual Force detected Su Li’s cultivation, Duan Ling Tian’s pupils constricted abruptly, and his heart was filled with shock.
What have I seen?
“Su Li… Su Li is actually at the fourth level of the Void Initiation Stage as well?” This was the cause of Duan Ling Tian’s shock.
Su Li’s current cultivation was actually exactly similar to him.
He knew clearly in his heart about the fortuitous encounters he’d obtained to possess this cultivation.
But how did Su Li advance so quickly?
“Could it be spirit fruits? If it’s really spirit fruits, then it’s understandable.” Duan Ling Tian thought to himself. “But, it can be seen from this that the Master behind Su Li is extremely extraordinary…”
What a joke!
Would someone that’s able to use spirit fruits to allow Su Li’s cultivation to advance to such an extent be an ordinary person?
“Duan Ling Tian, you left for quite some time… Did you have any gains that were out of the ordinary?” Su Li asked.
“I didn’t obtain any special gains, I just had some comprehension in the aspect of Concept.” Duan Ling Tian smiled modestly.
Subsequently, Duan Ling Tian and Su Li walked together before returning to their own courtyards.
After he returned to his room, Duan Ling Tian couldn’t help but sigh as he felt the desolate atmosphere.
“All of them have left… Only I alone remain.” Duan Ling Tian didn’t cultivate at night, and he silently lay on his bed and stared blankly.
