Duan Ling Tian glanced at the two Demonic Lotusblade Sect disciples that knelt on the ground before he said indifferently, “My Seven Star Sword Sect doesn’t accept turncoats… Since the both of you are able to turn on the Demonic Lotusblade Sect today, then you’ll be able to turn on my Seven Star Sword Sect in the future.”
“Lord Duan Ling Tian!” Right when he thought the two Demonic Lotusblade Sect disciples would retreat in the face what he said, the two of them had persisted instead, and they pinched open their finger before a drop of blood charged into the sky.
“I’m willing to take a vow with my own blood that so long as Lord Duan Ling Tian is willing to allow me to join the Seven Star Sword Sect, then I’ll surely live and die with the Seven Star Sword Sect and never betray it forever! If I go against this vow, then I’m willing to be struck to death by the Nine-Nine Heavenly Tribulation!” The two Demonic Lotusblade Sect disciples vowed at the same time.
Meanwhile, a wave of deafening thunderclaps resounded out from the horizon. Obviously, it was the Oath Tribulation bearing witness to their vow.
“Hmm?” Duan Ling Tian’s brows raised as everything before him had exceeded his expectations.
Never had he imagined that these two Demonic Lotusblade Sect disciples would be so persistent to the point of vowing under the Nine-Nine Heavenly Tribulation, and for a time, he couldn’t help but become hesitant.
Truthfully speaking, he subconsciously discriminated against these members of the Demonic Lotusblade Sect, and it was because of nothing else but his detest of the Demonic Lotusblade Sect.
“Mo Yu, what do you think?” Duan Ling Tian looked at Mo Yu and asked.
He was only a passerby to the Seven Star Sword Sect, and Mo Yu was the leader of the Seven Star Sword Sect from today onwards and the future of the Seven Star Sword Sect was completely borne by him.
Mo Yu pondered slightly. “Senior Brother, since they’ve already vowed under the Oath Tribulation, I presume it’s impossible for them to be disloyal to our Seven Star Sword Sect. Presently, our Seven Star Sword Sect has just been rebuilt and is at the moment that we require people the most. So, I feel that we can accept them as disciples of the Seven Star Sword Sect.”
“Okay, then we’ll do as you said.” Duan Ling Tian nodded.
The two Demonic Lotusblade Sect disciples said hurriedly, “Thank you, Lord Mo Yu.”
“Hmph!” But, Duan Ling Tian’s cold snort caused them to feel as if they were setting on a carpet of needles.
Right when the two Demonic Lotusblade Sect disciples were perturbed, Duan Ling Tian spoke indifferently. “Remember this, he’s the Sect Leader of the Seven Star Sword Sect.”
“Thank you, Sect Leader!” Even though they were curious why the Seven Star Sword Sect’s Sect Leader wasn’t Duan Ling Tian, but they didn’t dare dally in the slightest when they heard this, and they hurriedly apologized to Mo Yu.
“Senior Brother, I feel that you’re more suitable to be the Seven Star Sword Sect’s Leader.” Mo Yu said with a bitter smile on his face, “I’m only at the Void Prying Stage now, so how can I undertake the great responsibility of being the Seven Star Sword Sect’s Leader?”
“Why can’t you undertake it with the help of Elder Peng and Peak Master Qin Xiang?” Duan Ling Tian neither agreed nor disagreed instead, and he spoke decisively. “This matter is decided… You’re the closed door disciple of Sect Leader Linghu and the next inheritor of the position of Sect Leader of the Seven Star Sword Sect that he’d decided on. The position of Sect Leader in the Seven Star Sword Sect can only be yours!”
“As for me… I won’t be staying in the Azure Forest Imperial Kingdom in the future.” As he finished speaking, Duan Ling Tian added.
“Mo Yu, I’ll pass the heavy responsibility of the Seven Star Sword Sect to you… I hope you don’t disappoint your master.” Duan Ling Tian spoke solemnly to Mo Yu.
“Don’t worry Senior Brother, I’ll surely try my best!” Mo Yu spoke hurriedly.
“Lord Duan Ling Tian, Sect Leader Mo Yu, we’re willing to join the Seven Star Sword Sect as well!” Right at this moment, the remaining Demonic Lotusblade Sect disciples hurriedly knelt on the floor and vowed under the Oath Tribulation after they saw the actions of the two disciples from before.
As for the content of their vows, it was similar to the vow taken by the two disciples from before.
For a time, deafening thunderclaps resounded in the horizon.
Even though they’d made such a vow that caused them to not only be unable to betray the Seven Star Sword Sect for their entire lives, they even had to live and die with the Seven Star Sword Sect, but they didn’t regret it.
When they joined the Azure Forest Tri-Sect in the past, it was mostly because to wanted to find a strong power to rely on while striving to become outstanding.
Now the Azure Forest Tri-Sect was gone, and an even stronger Seven Star Sword Sect was right before their eyes.
So they chose to join the Seven Star Sword Sect and seek an even better future.
“Mo Yu, you deal with the matters here… Peak Master Qin Xiang, Elder Peng, Mo Yu is still young, I hope that both of you can guide him in the future.” Duan Ling Tian spoke to Mo Yu before turning to look at Qin Xiang and Elder Peng.
Qin Xiang and Elder Peng nodded.
“Don’t worry, Mo Yu is the Seven Star Sword Sect’s Leader, and I’m his Martial Aunt. I’ll naturally try my best to support him to become a qualified Sect Leader,” said Qin Xiang.
“Okay.” Duan Ling Tian nodded, and then he said, “Since it’s like this, then I’ll be leaving first.”
“Senior Brother, where’re you going?” Mo Yu couldn’t help but asked when he heard Duan Ling Tian wanted to leave.
“I’ll search the surroundings to see if there are any survivors of the Demonic Lotusblade Sect… After that, I’ll return to my hometown, and I’ll return to the Seven Star Sword Sect after that,” said Duan Ling Tian.
“Senior Brother, the nine great Spirit Points of our Seven Star Sword Sect have been completely destroyed, and it probably has to experience an extremely long amount of time before being capable of accumulating spirit energy once more… Shouldn’t we move our Seven Star Sword Sect to the Demonic Lotusblade Gorge, and the location of the Snow Moon Sect and Origin Convergence Sect?” Mo Yu couldn’t help but asked.
“There’s no need.” Duan Ling Tian shook his head. “Our Seven Star Sword Sect will still be at the seven great sword peaks… Just bring all of them back. Besides that, recall Senior Brother Zheng Song and the disciples of the Seven Star Sword Sect that are wandering about outside once you get back.”
“After I return from my hometown, I’ll find a way to move all the Spirit Points that remain in the Demonic Lotusblade Gorge, Origin Convergence Sect, and Snow Moon Sect to our Seven Star Sword Sect.” Duan Ling Tian finished speaking in a single breath.
Move the Spirit Points?
Not only had Duan Ling Tian’s words caused Mo Yu, Qin Xiang, Elder Peng, and the group of Seven Star Sword Sect disciples that had just joined the sect to be stunned, even Feng Wu Dao, Feng Tian Wu, and Elder Kong couldn’t help but be stunned.
“Senior Brother, are you really able to move the Spirit Points?” Mo Yu took a deep breath and couldn’t refrain from asking.
As far as he was concerned, this was truly unbelievable.
“Yes.” Duan Ling Tian nodded, and then his gaze raised as his figure flashed out to collect the Spatial Rings of Long Wei, Lu Yuan, and Xue Rui.
After he dripped his blood on them to establish ownership, he collected the Origin Drawing Pearls within, and it was a total of 18.
“I truly never imagined that Long Wei was capable of finding so many Origin Drawing Pearls… Even if it’s in the Foreign Lands, this Origin Drawing Pearls can be considered to be rare things.” After he put away the Origin Drawing pearls, Duan Ling Tian removed his ownership on the three Spatial Rings and tossed them to Mo Yu. “All of you can collect the remaining spoils of the battle… Let’s leave this place first.” As he finished speaking, Duan Ling Tian notified Feng Wu Dao’s group of three before the four of them flew out to make a circle around the Demonic Lotusblade Gorge.
After following some clues to kill some survivors of the Demonic Lotusblade Sect that had left not long ago, the four of them continued south.
The enormous sword sailed across the sky as it carried Duan Ling Tian’s group of four, and they only spent a day before arriving in the sky above the Crimson Sky Kingdom.
Duan Ling Tian silently looked down at the city beneath him.
Even though in the eyes of Duan Ling Tian who’d seen world, this Crimson Sky Kingdom’s Imperial City was no different that a small and remote city, it was precisely this city that caused him to be unable to restrain waves of ripples of excitement from emerging in his heart.
Nervousness as one approached home after a long time was a saying that spoke precisely about Duan Ling Tian’s current state.
An entire four years had passed since he left the Crimson Sky Kingdom the last time. “It’s been four years… I wonder how Father and Mother are?”
Duan Ling Tian carried an excited mood as all of them descended outside the Imperial City.
They didn’t fly in directly.
According to what Feng Tian Wu said, it would allow them to merge better into the Imperial City. Of course, the reason she thought this way was because this place was Duan Ling Tian’s hometown, and she wanted to get to know Duan Ling Tian’s hometown.
Besides Duan Ling Tian who was feeling nervous from approaching home and didn’t discern the deep meaning within Feng Tian Wu’s words, Feng Wu Dao and Elder Kong guessed what Feng Tian Wu was thinking.
Especially Elder Kong, his weird gaze caused Feng Tian Wu to blush from embarrassment, and she glared repeatedly at Elder Kong as if she was threatening Elder Kong that he was not allowed to say any further.
The Crimson Sky Kingdom’s Imperial City was divided into the outer city and inner city.
When they walked into the outer city and felt the bustling atmosphere on the streets, Duan Ling Tian seemed to have returned to the time he’d just left Aurora City and arrived at the Imperial City.
Needless to say, Duan Ling Tian’s groups luck wasn’t bad, and after they had a meal in the outer city, the gate to the inner city had already opened up slowly.
Of course, even if the inner city wasn’t opened, they could directly fly in, however, the feeling of walking in was completely different.
In next to no time, Duan Ling Tian’s group of four slowly stepped into the inner city.
“Young Master, look, look quickly… My god! I’ve never seen such a beauty in all my life. Even though I’ve never seen our Imperial City’s number one beauty, Princess Bi Yao, but I dare be certain that she’s absolutely not inferior to Princess Bi Yao!”
In the distance, the gaze of the servant at the side of a young man in embroidered clothes that rode a large horse glowed as he stared at Duan Ling Tian’s group of four in the distance.
More precisely speaking, he was staring at Feng Tian Wu.
Feng Tian Wu didn’t cover her face with a veil like before, and her peerlessly beautiful face could be said to have drawn numerous burning gazes all along the way.
But because of the extraordinary aura that was imperceptibly revealed by Duan Ling Tian, Feng Wu Dao, and Elder Kong, it caused some lascivious men that intended to strike up a conversation with her to stop far away.
“Hmm?” The young man in embroidered clothed looked along the gaze of the servant when he heard this, and with a single glance, his gaze couldn’t move away any longer.
There’s actually such a beauty in the world?
Beauty that made flowers blush and made the moon hide, beauty that made fishes sink and geese fall out from the sky, all of this was insufficient to describe the drop dead gorgeous appearance of the young woman before him.
The young woman’s flawlessness caused his heartbeat to abruptly quicken.
Intense desire of possession emerged and sprawled out within his heart.
Duan Ling Tian and Feng Tian Wu walked side by side. At this moment, his feelings had calmed down, and he was chatting happily with Feng Tian Wu on the street.
“Young Miss.” A sudden voice interrupted Duan Ling Tian and Feng Tian Wu’s idle chats.
Subsequently, a large horse obstructed Duan Ling Tian and Feng Tian Wu’s path, and the young man in embroidered clothes that sat on it was staring at Feng Tian Wu with a gaze that was filled with greed and the desire to possess her.
