Chapter 653: Reunion
Translator: KurazyTolanzuraytor Editor: Jay
After all, although the Eldest Master of the Feng Clan was almost the same age as King Yong. He was an unreachable existence to King Yong.
The Feng Clan was a formidable clan that was only inferior to the Imperial Family in the Darkhan Dynasty, and the experts within it were numerous like the clouds. Merely existences at the seventh level of the Void Interpretation Stage or above were almost 10 in number.
Amongst them were the two great ancestors of the Feng Clan that supposedly were existences at the eighth level of the Void Interpretation Stage or above, whereas, the Feng Clan’s Eldest Master Feng Wu Dao was supposedly to have already become not the slightest bit inferior to the Feng Clan’s two great ancestors since a few years ago.
Most importantly, he was still young, and his cultivation was still able to continue advancing.
“I got to know him by chance.” Duan Ling Tian smiled, yet didn’t speak of it in detail.
How was he supposed to say it?
Could it be that he could say that because of an extremely crazy prediction, Feng Wu Dao had brought along his daughter to a city in the southern area of the Darkstone Empire a few years ago and became the Governor of that city before holding a Groom Search Competition for his daughter?
King Yong nodded.
He was an intelligent person and discerned that Duan Ling Tian didn’t want to say anything further, so he didn’t continue asking.
But when he thought of how he was about to meet that great figure in the rumors, King Yong’s breathing couldn’t help but become hurried.
The number one expert of the Darkstone Empire, King Yong, had lived half his lifetime, yet when had he lost his composure like this in the past?
After a short moment, Duan Ling Tian and King Yong arrived before an estate within the estate under the lead of the Feng Clan guard.
“You can return, I’ll go in myself.” When he saw the Feng Clan guard about to knock on the door, Duan Ling Tian spoke out.
“Yes, Young Master Ling Tian, then I’ll take my leave first.” The Feng Clan guard nodded respectfully to Duan Ling Tian before leaving.
King Yong was completely disregarded by him.
Of course, King Yong didn’t feel that slightest bit displeased.
Not to mention the guard didn’t know his identity, even if the guard knew his identity, the guard would surely not be afraid of him.
Although he was only a guard, he was still a guard of the Feng Clan.
Even if King Yong was perhaps able to assassinate a Feng Clan guard in secret, he would absolutely not dare kill a Feng Clan guard openly before a member of the Feng Clan.
The dignity of the Feng Clan wasn’t something that a King from a tiny Empire like him could be disrespectful towards.
Duan Ling Tian took two steps forward and knocked on the door of the estate before him.
Not long after, Duan Ling Tian heard a wave of hurried footsteps sound out from within.
Subsequently, the door was opened, and an aged and thin figure walked over with large strides to appear before Duan Ling Tian.
“Grandma Xu.” Duan Ling Tian lightly smiled at he nodded towards the old lady that opened the door.
“Young Master Ling Tian.” When she saw Duan Ling Tian, Grandma Xu squeezed out a smile that looked more unsightly than a crying expression.
Subsequently, Grandma Xu’s gaze descended onto King Yong who stood behind Duan Ling Tian. “This is?”
“This is King Yong, a King of the Darkstone Empire, and the person who was in the lead of the group when bringing me to the Darkhan Dynasty to participate in the Dynasty Martial Competition.” Duan Ling Tian lightly smiled as he introduced King Yong to Grandma Xu.
“King Yong?” Grandma Xu’s gaze descended onto King Yong, and then she nodded lightly. “I’ve heard of you, the number one expert of the Darkstone Empire.”
“You flatter me.” King Yong hurriedly spoke modestly.
“Young Master Ling Tian, please enter.” In next to no time, Grandma Xu greeted Duan Ling Tian into the estate.
As for King Yong, she didn’t pay any further attention to him, and King Yong wasn’t surprised by this as well.
Since this old lady was able to stay within the estate of the Feng Clan’s Eldest Master, her identity in the Feng Clan was presumably extraordinary, and even if her strength was inferior to him, she wasn’t someone he could offend.
In next to no time, Grandma Xu led Duan Ling Tian and King Yong into the Audience Hall within the estate.
The Audience Hall was completely empty.
“Young Master Ling Tian, I’ll go invite the Eldest Master over.” Grandma Xu notified Duan Ling Tian before turning around and heading out.
Grandma Xu hadn’t left for long when Duan Ling Tian heard a wave of hurried footsteps.
King Yong’s expression became serious when he heard this.
Only Duan Ling Tian had a slight smile on his face as he looked towards the entrance of the Audience Hall.
In next to no time, an aged figure appeared before Duan Ling Tian and King Yong, and it caused King Yong to be unable to help but be stunned. “Isn’t that the Eldest Master of the Feng Clan?”
“Elder Kong!” Duan Ling Tian looked at the old man and revealed a brilliant smile.
The person that had appeared before him and King Yong was none other than Elder Kong, who he’d met in Phoenix Nest City on that day.
Elder Kong’s cultivation was extraordinary, and at the same time, he was also an Inscription Master.
In the entire Darkhan Dynasty, his art of Inscriptions was matchless.
In the territory of the Darkhan Dynasty, if he were to say he was second in the Dao of Inscriptions, then no one would dare say they were the first!
“Haha… Brother Duan, we meet again.” When he saw Duan Ling Tian once more, Elder Kong laughed joyfully, and his eyes were filled with recollection.
In his eyes, Duan Ling Tian wasn’t simply a young man, as this young man’s attainments in the Dao of Inscription was something that even he admired greatly.
Moreover, he’d learned many things from this young man all those years ago.
It was precisely because of the guidance of this young man all those years ago that his attainments in the Dao of Inscriptions was able to advance in a short period of time.
“Yeah, we meet again.” Duan Ling Tian nodded.
“Elder Kong?” King Yong who stood by Duan Ling Tian’s side was stunned once more when he heard how Duan Ling Tian addressed the old man.
He was naturally familiar with this name.
There were many outstanding Inscription Masters in the Darkhan Dynasty, and they were able to inscribe miraculous Inscriptions, whereas, amongst these Inscription Masters, there was one person that was the most outstanding.
That person was the Revered Elder of the Feng Clan, and people called him Elder Kong.
Supposedly, no one in the Darkhan Dynasty was able to compare with the attainments of the Feng Clan’s Elder Kong in the Dao of Inscriptions, and only a few Inscription Masters in a few Dynasties had the qualifications to sit on equal ground as Elder Kong.
In the Darkhan Dynasty, Elder Kong’s reputation wasn’t inferior to the Feng Clan’s Eldest Master, Feng Wu Dao.
“Brother Duan, this is?” Meanwhile, Elder Kong noticed King Yong as well.
“This is King Yong…” Duan Ling Tian introduced King Yong to Elder Kong as well.
“King Yong? I’ve heard of you, the number one expert of the Darkstone Empire… Your cultivation isn’t bad.” Elder Kong sized King Yong up and nodded lightly.
“Elder Kong.” Even though Elder Kong had only greeted King Yong indifferently, yet King Yong didn’t dare be discourteous and hurriedly bowed respectfully.
Not to mention the attainments of this old man in the Dao of Inscriptions, even the old man’s cultivation was something that was difficult for him to reach.
Elder Kong similarly paid no further attention to King Yong, and he instead carried on chatting passionately with Duan Ling Tian, causing King Yong to be slightly embarrassed.
Duan Ling Tian noticed this and occasionally brought King Yong into the topic, allowing King Yong to avoid much embarrassment.
“Ling Tian!” Not long after, a clear voice entered into the Audience Hall.
Subsequently, a dignified middle aged man in a fiery red robe strode in with majestic gait, and his imposing manner was extraordinary.
At the side of this dignified middle aged man was a young woman that followed like a shadow.
The woman wore red clothes and was like a fairy of fire.
Besides that, she also had an absolutely beautiful face that was dazzling, and she had black brows that seemed to have come from a painting. Her eyes were like two drops of autumn water, and she possessed a beautiful nose, cherry red lips, white teeth, and naturally aligned features that drew out a beautiful outline and caused her to be suffocatingly beautiful.
She was like a celestial maiden that had descended into the mortal world.
“Big Brother Duan!” When the red clothed young woman saw Duan Ling Tian, her beautiful face revealed pleasant surprise.
“City Governor Feng.” Duan Ling Tian nodded with a smile to the dignified middle aged man before looking at the red clothed woman. “Tian Wu.”
The people that arrived were precisely the pair of father and daughter, Feng Wu Dao and Feng Tian Wu.
“Haha… Ling Tian, you’ve finally arrived.” Feng Wu Dao laughed, and he arrived before Duan Ling Tian in a short moment before nodding with satisfaction. “Not bad, you’re even more robust than before… I heard from Grandma Xu that you obtained the qualifications from the Darkstone Empire to participate in the Dynasty Martial Competition. Looks like your current cultivation isn’t bad.”
“It’s normal.” Duan Ling Tian smiled modestly.
“Big Brother Duan.” Feng Tian Wu left Feng Wu Dao’s side and stood by Duan Ling Tian’s side with a beautiful face that was slightly red, and she was slightly ill at ease. “You… You’ve come.”
Duan Ling Tian nodded. “I have.”
When Feng Tian Wu heard Duan Ling Tian’s reply, she seemed to have recalled something, and the rosiness of her face became even more obvious and clear.
“A grown girl can’t be kept at home… Ling Tian has only just arrived, yet Tian Wu has already left me, her father, and stood over there with him.” Feng Wu Dao sighed intentionally.
“Father, what’re you saying!?” Instantly, Feng Tian Wu was embarrassed to the point of wishing for nothing more than to drill a hole and hide within it, and her face became even more red, as if blood would drip out from it.
“Alright, I won’t joke with you… Ling Tian, this is?” In next to no time, Feng Wu Dao’s gaze descended onto King Yong.
King Yong was truly too conspicuous. His figure was robust, his expression dignified, and especially the red mole in the center of his brows was extremely conspicuous.
“City Governor Feng, he’s King Yong.” Duan Ling Tian introduced King Yong once more.
“King Yong? The number one expert of the Darkstone Empire, you deserve your reputation.” A trace of surprise was revealed within Feng Wu Dao’s eyes as he nodded. “I’m grateful to you for taking care of Ling Tian all along the way here, thank you.”
“Lord Wu Dao, you’re too kind. Since Duan Ling Tian came from our Darkstone Empire, then I have to take care of him no matter what.” King Yong’s breathing became hurried one more when facing Feng Wu Dao, and his heartbeat quickened as well.
Even though he was the number one expert of the Darkstone Empire, and he received the reverence of the people of the Darkstone Empire.
But before Feng Wu Dao, he didn’t dare put on any airs.
“You’re very good.” Feng Wu Dao nodded and smiled to King Yong.
For a time, King Yong was slightly overwhelmed by the unexpected favor.
“Ling Tian, I’m already not a city governor now… In the future, directly call me Uncle Feng,” said Feng Wu Dao to Duan Ling Tian, and his tone was exceedingly amiable like a kind senior.
“Yes, Uncle Feng.” Duan Ling Tian hurriedly nodded.
“The Dynasty Martial Competition is ten days from now… At that time, Tian Wu will be participating as well. The current Tian Wu isn’t the past Tian Wu, and I’m afraid you’re going to suffer a loss if you encounter her.” As he finished speaking, Feng Wu Dao couldn’t help but laugh.
He still remembered how his daughter suffered a loss before Duan Ling Tian in the past…
As far as he was concerned, his daughter was surely capable of redeeming herself this time.
