Presently, it wasn’t only Duan Ling Tian and Su Li who’d come out, even the representatives and young geniuses of the various Dynasties had come out from the surrounding pavilions.
Amongst them included Feng Wu Dao, Feng Tian Wu, and Zhang Shou Yong, and it also included the Darkhan Dynasty’s Emperor, the Second Prince Bai He, and the Young Prince Bai Hao.
As for Zi Shang, he stood in the sky with a black clothed old man.
The black clothed old man was precisely his master, Bai Nan Yin, the Imperial Uncle of the Darkhan Dynasty’s Emperor, and he was brothers of the same father but different mother with Bai Nan Xiang who Duan Ling Tian had killed with a talisman that day.
The members of the Darkhan Dynasty looked at each other. “They’re looking for Duan Ling Tian? Has Duan Ling Tian committed something?”
Right when the members of the Darkhan Dynasty were deeply bewildered.
“Looks at the skywolf badge on the chest of the uniform this middle aged man is wearing… The eyes of that skywolf are actually golden!”
“It really is! I wonder if a golden eyed skywolf carries any special meaning… I still remember that the middle aged man who led us into Skywolf Fort a few days ago had a skywolf badge that possessed copper eyes.”
“I heard a Skywolf Fort disciple mention it that day…. In Skywolf Fort, the eyes of the skywolf on the badge represents the status of every single member of the Skywolf Fort!”
The members of the other nine Dynasties shot their gazes towards skywolf badge on the chest of the middle aged man in the distances, and the golden eyed skywolf gave them an indescribable feeling of oppression.
“Hmph! A group of bumpkins!” Right at this moment, everyone noticed that the old man who seemed to be extremely humble when standing by the middle aged man side had actually glanced at them with a gaze of disdain and insulted them as bumpkins.
Instantly, the various representatives and young geniuses of the ten Dynasties looked angrily at the old man, and they wished for nothing more than to cut the old man up into pieces.
Right when everyone couldn’t help but want to reply with insults.
Swoosh! Swoosh! Swoosh!
Three figures flashed up into and arrived in the sky in a short moment.
These were three middle aged men that wore green colored uniform, and they were obviously disciples of Skywolf Fort.
During the most recent period of time, they’d entertained the young geniuses and representatives of the ten Dynasties while making preparations for the martial competition.
“It was he who led us into Skywolf Fort that day.”
All the young geniuses of the ten Dynasties whispered in discussion.
Duan Ling Tian’s brows raised as up until now, he still didn’t know what had happened, because he utterly didn’t know this middle aged man and old man that had put up a big show when coming to look for him.
But he had a slight impression towards one of the three Skywolf Fort disciples that had made an appearance now.
If he wasn’t wrong, when he, Feng Wu Dao, and Feng Tian Wu had arrived at Skywolf Fort for the first time that day, they were received by this person.
“Vice Fort Master!” The Skywolf Fort disciples with a copper eyes skywolf badge looked at the middle aged man with a gold eyes skywolf badge and bowed respectfully and reverently.
This scene caused the expressions of the representatives and young geniuses of the ten Dynasties including Duan Ling Tian to be covered in shock.
Vice Fort Master?
The Vice Fort Master of Skywolf Fort?
“Everyone, this is our Skywolf Fort’s Vice Fort Master Feng.” Before long, one of the Skywolf Fort disciples looked around at the members of the ten Dynasties and directly introduced the middle aged man.
“Vice Fort Master!”
“Vice Fort Master!”
For a time, everyone from the ten Dynasties either bowed to Feng Wei or nodded.
Besides Duan Ling Tian, Feng Tian Wu, Su Li, and some proud and arrogant young geniuses, there were also Feng Wu Dao, the Darkhan Dynasty’s Emperor, and a few others that nodded.
All of them were well renowned experts in their own Dynasties and possessed an extraordinary status.
Since they obtained their current status, they’d never bent down to anyone.
So even if they were facing the Vice Fort Master of Skywolf Fort today. Even though they were afraid of his strength, yet they didn’t bend their backbone that contained their dignity.
To them who were in high positions for a long time, dignity was more important than anything.
But Feng Wei obviously didn’t have the intention of fussing about it with them.
Or perhaps, in Feng Wei’s eyes, he utterly didn’t care.
“This old fellow’s movements are rather fast… But I never imagined that a mere Dongguo Clan Patriarch like him is able to get the help of a Vice Fort Master of Skywolf Fort.” Zi Shang thought in his heart as the corners of his mouth curled into a slight smile, and his gaze that contained a smiling expression looked at Duan Ling Tian as if he’d already seen the scene of Duan Ling Tian being killed.
“Hmm?” Duan Ling Tian noticed Zi Shang’s strange gaze, and he couldn’t help but frown.
“What exactly is going on? Earlier, it was this Skywolf Fort’s Vice Fort Master that called me out… What’s he looking for me for?” Duan Ling Tian’s brows knit tightly as he looked at Feng Wei, and he didn’t know why Feng Wei had come.
“Who’s Duan Ling Tian?” Feng Wei spoke out once more. His gaze was calm, and his expression remained unchanged like water in an ancient well as if he was speaking about something that wasn’t related to himself.
“Why is Vice Fort Master Feng looking for Duan Ling Tian?” For a time, many people from Darkhan Dynasty turned to look at Duan Ling Tian who stood by Su Li’s side.
Subsequently, it was like a chain reaction as the representatives and young geniuses of the other nine Dynasties shot their gazes at Duan Ling Tian.
“He’s Duan Ling Tian?” In the Darchu Dynasty’s group, a blue clothed young man’s eyes flashed as his face went slightly grim. “Isn’t he just a young genius from the Darkhan Dynasty? He’s actually able to make the Vice Fort Master of Skywolf Fort personally come look for him, what great prestige!” As the blue clothed young man muttered to himself, his eyes were filled with envy.
“Duan Ling Tian…” The thin young man that stood at the side of the blue clothed young man shook his head when he heard this. “This matter isn’t so simple.”
His gaze descended onto the old man behind Feng Wei as he’d noticed that the old man’s eyes were filled with extreme coldness.
If Duan Ling Tian saw these two people, he would surely recognize them in the first possible moment as they were exactly the people that were in conflict with him and Zhang Shou Yong in a restaurant in Ancient Desert City.
Both of them were young geniuses from the Darchu Dynasty.
“Not good!” Meanwhile, Feng Wu Dao noticed that something was off with the old man behind Feng Wei as at the instant the old man’s gaze locked onto Duan Ling Tian, the killing intent in the old man’s eyes almost shot out.
Feng Wu Dao noticed the hostility the old man had towards Duan Ling Tian, and it was hostility that wouldn’t end without the death of one party!
In next to no time, many people noticed this, and this included Duan Ling Tian.
“He… Could it be that he’d a member of the Dongguo Clan? But even if it’s the Patriarch who has the highest status in the clan, a mere member of the Dongguo Clan is probably unable to make the Vice Fort Master of Skywolf Fort assist him, right?” Duan Ling Tian’s face sank, and his eyes flickered as he realized he might have miscalculated.
Never had he imagined that a member of a mere Dongguo Clan would actually be able to make the Vice Fort Master of Skywolf Fort come look for him personally. As for the purpose, it was obvious.
“Perhaps, there’s some sort of relationship between them… A single wrong move caused every move to be wrong, I only hope that I’ll be able to smoothly escape this calamity.” Duan Ling Tian took a deep breath as bright lights flickered in his eyes, and his mind was filled with a myriad of thoughts and ideas.
Meanwhile, numerous methods to deal with the problem flashed within his heart.
The first — Seek assistance from Su Li’s master.
But even if Su Li’s master was willing to help him, but the Skywolf Fort wasn’t the Darming Dynasty’s Zhao Clan after all. There were experts that were as numerous as the clouds in Skywolf Fort, and even if it was experts at the seventh level of the Void Transformation Stage or above, there probably would be quite a few.
Su Li’s master might not be able to deal with a colossus like this.
The second — Use the last two talismans his father left behind to kill this Skywolf Fort Vice Fort Master and the Dongguo Clan’s member before fleeing Ancient Desert City.
But in this way, he would perhaps be able to escape Ancient Desert City, yet might not be able to escape the Skywolf Fort’s pursuit.
Moreover, once he did this, it would possibly implicate Feng Wu Dao and Feng Tian Wu, and this was something he wasn’t willing to see.
For a time, Duan Ling Tian could only think of these two methods to deal with the difficult problem before him, yet both these methods seemed to not be reliable.
“Could it be that I, Duan Ling Tian, am really going to perish here today?” Unknowingly, the corners of Duan Ling Tian’s mouth curled into a wisp of bitterness, indescribable bitterness.
“He’s Duan Ling Tian?” In the Darming Dynasty’s group, a young man who wore a silver robe with gold edges looked at the young man by his side as he asked with a spurious smile.
If Duan Ling Tian looked over here at this moment, he would surely be able to recognize with a glance that the young man who was questions was exactly a person he’d once met in the Iceflame Pavilion of the Darming Dynasty’s Capital.
Zhao Wei Yi, the Zhao Clan’s number one expert in the younger generation and one of the two most outstanding young experts in the Darming Dynasty.
Zhao Wei Yi’s face flickered between a livid and ashen expression when being questioned by his rival, and he disregarded it.
“Imperial Brother, he’s Duan Ling Tian! But, it would seem that he’s going to be struck with misfortune today.” Lu Hao laughed.
Lu Hao was precisely the Third Prince that Duan Ling Tian had encountered in the ninth floor of Iceflame Pavilion that day, and he was also the one and only young genius from Darming Dynasty that hadn’t attacked Duan Ling Tian that day.
Obviously, the young man that wore a silver robe with gold edges was the Crown Prince of the Darming Dynasty’s Imperial Family, Lu Yong!
“Elder Qian, it was the master of that person by Duan Ling Tian’s side that killed Elder Kun.” Zhao Wei Yi’s burning gaze stared at Su Li who was by Duan Ling Tian’s side.
When he recalled the scene from that day, he still felt a slight chill run down his spine even until today as that robust middle aged man that looked ordinary had used a single move to kill one of the two strongest experts in their Zhao Clan.
The expression of the grey clothed old man that stood nearby couldn’t help but go grim when he heard Zhao Wei Yi.
Of course, he didn’t arouse the intention to take revenge, because he knew clearly in his heart that since that expert was capable of kill that old friend of his in a single move, that expert was similarly capable of killing him in a single move, as the both of them had equal strengths.
In the sky, the atmosphere was extremely heavy, and the sound of danger could be heard in the wind and cries of the birds.
Duan Ling Tian had become the center of attention.
“You’re Duan Ling Tian?” Finally, the Vice Fort Master of Skywolf Fort, Feng Wei, looked at Duan Ling Tian, and his eyes revealed slight surprise.
