When he saw the admiration revealed on the faces of the group of Feng Clan guards, Duan Ling Tian knew that he was at the right place.
This place was the Feng Clan that Feng Wu Dao spoke of.
“But why do these Feng Clan members not know Tian Wu?” This was something that puzzled Duan Ling Tian extremely.
Meanwhile, the Feng Clan guard in the lead was to first to return to his senses, and he took a deep breath before looking at Duan Ling Tian. “Young Master, you… You know the Eldest Master?”
“Eldest Master?” Duan Ling Tian was stunned, and then he reacted to the meaning of these words. This Feng Clan guard was precisely talking about Feng Wu Dao.
“Yes, I know him. I came here this time to look for him.” Duan Ling Tian nodded.
When he saw Duan Ling Tian confirm it, the Feng Clan guard had slight reverence in his eyes when he looked at Duan Ling Tian again. “I hope Young Master can forgive me for my previous offence.”
Duan Ling Tian smiled lightly. “There’s no harm done. I wonder if you can notify him of my arrival?”
“Young Master, please follow me.” The Feng Clan guard didn’t go in to announce Duan Ling Tian’s arrival and instead directly called out to Duan Ling Tian before leading the way to bring Duan Ling Tian into the Feng Clan Estate.
As for the other Feng Clan guards, all of them stood at both sides of the path and looked respectfully at Duan Ling Tian’s figure that vanished into the distance.
“The Eldest Master hasn’t appeared in public for many years… I never expected that a young man like this actually knows the Eldest Master.”
“Yeah, the Eldest Master is an unreachable legend in our Feng Clan… According to rumor, if it wasn’t for the Eldest Master having no intention to become the Patriarch of our Feng Clan, the current Feng Clan’s Patriarch would surely be the Eldest Master.”
“I’ve heard of this as well.”
“Eldest Master’s strength has supposedly already arrived at an extraordinary level that is even not inferior to the two Ancestors of our Feng Clan.”
All the Feng Clan guards whispered in discussion, and they words were filled with reverence towards Feng Wu Dao.
Feng Wu Dao, the Feng Clan’s Eldest Master and the Big Brother of the current Patriarch of the Feng Clan…
His status in the Feng Clan wasn’t the slightest bit inferior to the Patriarch, and it was almost at the level of the two great Ancestors.
All along the way, Duan Ling Tian found out about all of this from the Feng Clan guard that he was following.
“I never imagined that the City Governor Feng from that day has such a background.” Duan Ling Tian was shocked in his heart.
At the same time, Duan Ling Tian curiously asked the Feng Clan guard that lead the way before him. “Big Brother, your Feng Clan Estate seems to be built extremely grandly and magnificently, and it’s not much inferior to the Imperial Palace… The status of your Feng Clan in the Darkhan Dynasty ought to not be low, right?”
Duan Ling Tian’s words were actually only a form of probing.
Along with Duan Ling Tian finishing his words, the Feng Clan guard revealed an expression of pride, and at the same time, he looked at Duan Ling Tian and asked. “Young Master, you aren’t someone from our Darkhan Dynasty, right?”
“How so?” Duan Ling Tian was stunned.
“If Young Master is from the Darkhan Dynasty, it’s impossible for you to not understand our Feng Clan…” The Feng Clan guard lightly smiled.
Duan Ling Tian’s brows raised, and he faintly realized in his heart that the Feng Clan was probably an existence with an extraordinary status in the Darkhan Dynasty.
Meanwhile, the Feng Clan guard looked respectfully at Duan Ling Tian once more and asked. “May I know your name, Young Master?”
“Duan Ling Tian.” Duan Ling Tian stated it frankly.
“So its Young Master Ling Tian… If I’m not wrong, Young Master Ling Tian has most probably arrived at the Darkhan Dynasty for the sake of the Dynasty Martial Competition, right?” As the Feng Clan guard finished speaking, he glanced deeply at Duan Ling Tian.
“Yes.” Duan Ling Tian didn’t hide the truth, and then he asked with slight surprise. “How did you perceive it? Logically speaking, with my age, it’s truly difficult to make others connect me with the Dynasty Martial Competition.”
Indeed, the Dynasty Martial Competition had gather the most outstanding young geniuses in the Darkhan Dynasty, and the young geniuses that had become eminent in the various Empires.
Normally speaking, practically all these young geniuses were existences around the age of 35.
A young man like Duan Ling Tian who looked to be around the age of 25 was rarely seen to be connected to the Dynasty Martial Competition by others.
“Young Master Ling Tian, I was actually guessing as well… Since you know the Eldest Master, then you naturally can’t be looked at with an ordinary light.” The Feng Clan guard smiled as a matter of course.
His words revealed extremely blind adoration towards the Feng Clan’s Eldest Master, Feng Wu Dao.
That works as well?
Duan Ling Tian was slightly speechless.
At the same time, Duan Ling Tian deeply realized the status Feng Wu Dao had in the Feng Clan…
He wasn’t the Patriarch, yet had surpassed the Patriarch!
“With City Governor Feng’s status in the Feng Clan… Logically speaking, as his daughter, Tian Wu ought to be known well by the Feng Clan members, but why do they just not know Tian Wu?” Duan Ling Tian was extremely puzzled about this.
But, he didn’t directly ask this Feng Clan guard.
“I’ll wait for when I see City Governor Feng and Tian Wu to ask them.” Duan Ling Tian thought to himself.
The Feng Clan was extremely vast, and it wasn’t the slightest bit inferior to the Darkstone Empire’s Imperial Palace. All along the way, they took many twists and turns.
On the way, he could see numerous busy servants.
Duan Ling Tian followed behind the Feng Clan guard to head all the way towards the eastern area of the Feng Clan Estate…
In the end, they stood before an extremely spacious estate.
This estate was an estate within an estate, and it stood within the Feng Clan estate with its doors closed tightly as if it was completely separated from the outside.
“Young Master Ling Tian, this is the estate the Eldest Master lives in.” The Feng Clan guard looked at Duan Ling Tian and spoke with a respectful voice.
Subsequently, he took two steps forward and knocked on the estate door.
After a short moment, the estate door was slowly opened.
An aged figure appeared behind the door.
This was an old lady. The old lady had an aged appearance and wore green clothes, and she looked as if she was an old hag…
But if one looked carefully, one would be able to notice that deep within the old lady’s eyes, there seemed to be two strands of bright lights leaping about.
This old lady wasn’t simple.
“Senior Xu.” The Feng Clan guard bowed respectfully when facing the old lady.
“Do you need something?” The old lady didn’t even raise her head as she asked indifferently.
“Senior!” Before the Feng Clan guard opened his mouth, Duan Ling Tian couldn’t refrain from speaking first.
He knew this old lady.
The old lady was none other than Grandma Xu that he’d seen before in the Phoenix Nest City’s City Governors Estate, and she was also someone that followed by Tian Wu’s side.
At that day, for the sake of Tian Wu, Grandma Xue didn’t even have scruples as she knelt before him, and her loyalty to Tian Wu was obvious.
Duan Ling Tian always had respect in his heart towards Grandma Xu.
Duan Ling Tian’s voice broke the slightly oppressive atmosphere at the scene, whereas, Grandma Xu had finally slowly raised her head, and with a glance, she saw Duan Ling Tian who stood behind the Feng Clan guard.
“Ling… Young Master Ling Tian!” When Grandma Xu saw Duan Ling Tian, her muddy eyes flickered with a bright light, and she spoke out with slight pleasant surprise.
When the Feng Clan guard saw the old lady lose her composure like this and had even called out Duan Ling Tian’s name, he clearly realized that Duan Ling Tian was extraordinary.
What a joke!
He was extremely clear about who this old lady before him was.
Supposedly, this old lady was once the personal servant of the last Feng Clan Patriarch’s wife, and she was an expert with extraordinary strength.
At this day, even the Feng Clan’s Patriarch had to be slightly respectful when facing her.
The old lady only needed so say a word and she would be able to control the life and death of a Feng Clan guard like him.
“Senior, long time no see.” Duan Ling Tian lightly smiled and nodded to Grandma Xu, and it could be considered to be his greeting.
Grandma Xu didn’t mind either, and she called out to Duan Ling Tian. “Young Master Ling Tian, please come in.”
At the same time that he walked into the estate, Duan Ling Tian didn’t forget to turn around and nod to the Feng Clan guard. “Thanks for the trouble.”
“Young Master Ling Tian, don’t mention it.” The Feng Clan guard hurriedly replied modestly.
The Feng Clan guard took a deep breath and turned around to leave after the door to the estate before him closed.
His heart was filled with shock.
“Earlier, even Senior Xu was respectful when facing that young man… Senior Xu doesn’t even treat those Young Masters of our Feng Clan like that.”
“He wouldn’t be the illegitimate son of the Eldest Master, right?” As he continued thinking, the Feng Clan guard couldn’t help but guess in his heart.
Of course, he only dared guess.
If he were to dare speak of this guess of his, then even 10 lives wouldn’t be enough to save him.
Presently, Duan Ling Tian had followed Grandma Xu to enter the estate within the Feng Clan Estate, the estate that belonged to the Feng Clan’s Eldest Master, Feng Wu Dao.
“Young Master Ling Tian, when did you come to the Capital?” Grandma Xu brought Duan Ling Tian to walk in the estate as she asked.
“I’ve arrived for some time.” Duan Ling Tian lightly smiled before asking. “Senior, are City Governor Feng and Tian Wu here?”
Grandma Xu shook her head. “Eldest Master and the Young Miss went out last month, and they probably will be gone for some time… But, they’ll rush back before the Dynasty Martial Competition.”
Duan Ling Tian smiled bitterly as it looked like he came at the wrong time.
In next to no time, Duan Ling Tian was invited into the estate’s hall by Grandma Xue, and she made a pot of tea for him.
In the entire estate, not a single servant could be seen, and it was extremely desolate.
“Elder Kong isn’t here as well?” Duan Ling Tian looked at the surroundings and asked.
Grandma Xu nodded. “Elder Kong, Eldest Master, and the Young Miss left together… Young Master Ling Tian, you probably didn’t come to the Darkhan Dynasty’s Capital this time just for the sake of visiting Eldest Master and the Young Miss, right?”
Duan Ling Tian had said earlier that he’d already arrived at the Darkhan Dynasty’s Capital for some time, so she could know from this that Duan Ling Tian didn’t come solely for the Feng Clan.
“Yes.” Duan Ling Tian nodded. “I came for the Dynasty Martial Competition.”
“Dynasty Martial Competition?” Grandma Xu was slightly surprised. “Could it be that Young Master Ling Tian is representing the Darkstone Empire?”
Duan Ling Tian nodded.
For a time, Grandma Xu’s gaze on Duan Ling Tian had changed to a gaze of shock. “I never imagined that in a few short years, Young Master Ling Tian’s strength has actually advanced so swiftly to even become eminent amongst the numerous young geniuses of the Darkstone Empire and obtain the qualifications to participate in the Dynasty Martial Competition.”
“It was only luck.” Duan Ling Tian spoke modestly.
Grandma Xu shook her head, she’d lived for more than half a lifetime and would naturally not believe that it was luck.
“As expected of the destined man of the Young Miss… He’s really extraordinary.” Grandma Xu sighed in her heart.
