Needless to say, Su Li’s judgment was extremely convincing, and it caused Feng Tian Wu’s expression to gradually ease up.
“Yes, Tian Wu, Ling Tian will surely be fine… As the saying goes, one who survives great disaster is destined for fortune!” said Feng Wu Dao.
“Hmm.” Feng Tian Wu nodded lightly. Even though her mood had eased up, her peerlessly beautiful face was still suffused with a wisp of worry.
Feng Wu Dao completely gave up the thought of telling Feng Tian Wu the truth when he saw this.
Otherwise, his daughter would surely be even more worried.
Duan Ling Tian had vanished into thin air without leaving any trace for Feng Wu Dao to search for him, so in the end, he could only return to the Blade Sect with Sword 13 and the others.
“Vice Sect Master Sword, what happened to the four Vice Fort Masters of Skywolf Fort?” Feng Wu Dao asked curiously.
When he came to chase after Duan Ling Tian, Ta Mu, and the six elders earlier, Sword 13 and Saber 5 were in a fierce battle with the four Vice Fort Masters of Skywolf Fort.
Both sides were equally matched, and even if they fought for an entire day and night, they might not be able to determine a victor.
“They left after staying locked in combat with us for a period of time… Perhaps they thought that those elders of their Skywolf Fort had already succeeded and returned.” Sword 13 sneered. “They probably never dreamt that all the elders of their Skywolf Fort are dead!”
“They went for wool and came home shorn! They deserve it!” Saber 5 cursed, and then he sighed. “But, what a pity for Ta Mu… Such a good seedling has been killed by the members of Skywolf Fort just like this.”
“Let’s go!” After a short moment, Sword 13 sighed before leading the others to continue on their way northeast towards the Blade Sect.
The veil of night gradually descended.
Swoosh! Swoosh! Swoosh! Swoosh!
Four figures came from the southwest, and they passed to the sky before swiftly arriving at the place Sword 13 and the others were at dusk.
“There’re a few corpses there!” The person in the lead of the four suddenly stopped moving forward before plunging down.
The three people behind him followed him closely.
“Elder Ping?” As he looked at the corpse of the old man that had his neck twisted and didn’t show any signs of resistance, the expression of the old man that wore a green colored uniform darkened.
“No wonder they never returned, it turns out that all of them died here.” Meanwhile, the other three dragged five corpses over.
“All of them were killed with a single strike, and it can be seen from their wide open eyes that they were extremely terrified before their deaths… They ought to have encountered an expert that was impossible for them to go against.”
“Based on the distance their corpses were distributed and their injuries… The person that killed them wasn’t simple!”
“Even the Fort Master might not possess such a strength.”
In next to no time, the three old men and one middle aged man looked at each other, and all of them saw astonishment in each other’s eyes.
“A Martial Monarch!” Subsequently, all four of them cried out in unison.
These four people were the four Vice Fort Masters of Skywolf Fort that pursued the group from the Blade Sect and fought with Sword 13 and Saber 5.
Meng Li, Ning Can, Yu Tang, and Feng Wei.
After they returned, they originally thought that the six elders that pursued Duan Ling Tian had already returned, yet never had they imagined that the six elders had utterly not returned.
It wasn’t just that, they’d waited for a long time yet didn’t see those six elders return.
Instantly, the four of them decided to come over and take a look, and they wanted to see if they could discover any inkling.
The outcome exceeded their expectations.
The six elders of their Skywolf Fort seemed to have been killed by a Martial Monarch Stage expert, and five of them were even chased after and killed in the process of fleeing in all directions.
“There’s a trace of blood over there.” Suddenly, Feng Wei cried out in a low voice and seemed to have noticed something.
Instantly, the other three of them headed over together.
In next to no time, they saw a simple grave nearby. The was a tombstone on the grave and based on the traces of dirt atop the grave, it had obviously been buried not long ago.
Bang! Bang! Bang!
Ning Clan strode a step forward before pushing out three times with his palm, and his vast Origin Energy combined material Concept instantly turned the grave over.
A robust corpse was also blasted out, and it fell heavily on the ground.
“It’s Ta Mu’s corpse!” Feng Wei recognized who this corpse was with a single glance, and then he guessed. “It ought to be the members of the Blade Sect that buried him.”
“Could the six elders have been killed by the members of the Blade Sect?” Yu Tang frowned.
“No!” Meng Li shook his head. “The injuries on the corpses are obviously from a time ago… Moreover, the person that killed them is most probably a Martial Monarch Stage expert!”
“I haven’t noticed any traces in the surroundings nor did I see Duan Ling Tian’s corpse.” Feng Wei searched in the surroundings for a moment and said, “It’s slightly strange.”
“It’s extremely likely that Duan Ling Tian has been taken away by that Martial Monarch Stage expert… No matter how moody a Martial Monarch Stage expert is, he wouldn’t kill people for no reason. Especially people that are like ants in his eyes.” Ning Can guessed. “So I guess that the Martial Monarch Stage expert made a move for the sake of rescuing Duan Ling Tian… Perhaps he took a fancy to Duan Ling Tian’s natural talent and comprehension ability, or perhaps it’s because of something else.” As he finished speaking, Ning Can’s expression darkened.
The expressions of Meng Li’s group of three weren’t sightly either.
The matter from today had undoubtedly pushed them and Duan Ling Tian to opposing sides.
If Duan Ling Tian really followed by the side of a Martial Monarch Stage expert, then once he asked the Martial Monarch Stage expert to make a move in the future, their Skywolf Fort would be struck with calamity.
“Don’t worry unnecessarily for now… All of this is only our guess, and perhaps the truth isn’t like this?” In the next, Meng Li was the first to recover from his shock, and he consoled them.
Ning Can’s group of three nodded.
“Let’s return.” Meng Li continued. “We can forget the Saint Weapon in Duan Ling Tian’s hands for now… The pressing matter at the moment is to properly prepare to deal with the opening of the Martial Emperor’s Treasure Vault half a year from now! According to my knowledge, there’s no less than six powers that know of the existence of that treasure vault.”
When he spoke up to here, Meng Li looked at Ning Can. “Ning Can, I heard the personal disciple you just took is a Variant, and his innate ability is extraordinary… Properly foster him as his innate ability will be a trump card for the disciples of our Skywolf Fort after they enter the treasure vault!”
“Yes, Senior Brother.” Ning Can replied respectfully, and his face was suffused with a proud smile when he thought of that personal disciple of his.
The four of them arrived and left hastily.
As for the corpses of those six elders, they utterly disregarded them and casually tossed them in this vast plains, allowing them to await the arrival of wild beasts and fierce beasts.
High above the sky of the Darkhan Dynasty.
Two figures that were absurdly swift flashed by, and they appeared in the sky above the Darkhan Dynasty not too long later and stopped moving.
Meanwhile, the owners of those two figures revealed themselves.
Both of them were young women around the age of 15 and 16.
One of the young women wore yellow clothes, her eyes were suffused with a cheeky sheen, and a single glance allowed one to know that she wasn’t someone who could keep still.
The other young woman wore green clothes and had a pretty appearance, and it could be discerned that she would surely be a drop dead gorgeous beauty when she grew up.
Most importantly, the green clothed young woman seemed to be extremely tranquil when standing there, and it seemed like a scene that formed two extremes with the yellow clothed young woman that was looking around.
“Xue Nai, this is the Darkhan Dynasty you spoke of in the past?” The green clothed young woman asked with a pleasing and gentle voice that was like the voice of an oriole.
“Exactly, exactly.” The yellow clothed young woman nodded, and then she held the green clothed young woman’s hand before hastily plunging down. “I heard Big Brother Ling Tian say that he wanted to participate in some Martial Competition of the Ten Dynasties that day. I wonder if it has ended.”
“A few years have passed now, it ought to have ended, right?” Even though the green clothed young woman was pulled down from midair by the yellow clothed young woman, but she still maintained a tranquil ladylike posture as she lightly opened her lips and spoke in a pleasing tone.
“Won’t we know if we go ask people?” asked the yellow clothed young woman.
“Xue Nai, I think… We should return earlier. If my Father finds out that I sneaked out with you, he’ll surely be furious!” The green clothed young woman spoke with slight worry.
“What’re you afraid of?! You have me.” The yellow clothed young woman spoke heroically. “At that time, if Uncle Mu dares scold you, I’ll burn off his hair! Now that I speak of it, Uncle Mu’s appearance when he’s bald is rather handsome.”
“Don’t!” The green clothed young woman laughed bitterly. “Father’s hair was kept for a long time before growing to its current length… If you do it again, then he’ll probably become depressed.”
As far as she was concerned, her father was an overlord at any rate, yet he just happened to be meek like a rabbit before this little companion of hers.
“Alright, alright… You’re so annoying. If I knew earlier, I wouldn’t have brought you with me.” The yellow clothed young woman spoke with slight impatience.
In next to no time, the two young women entered the Capital of the Darkhan Dynasty, and they went to a restaurant at the first possible moment before calling an attendant over.
The yellow clothed young woman was Han Xue Nai, who’d parted with Duan Ling Tian a few years ago, and she looked at the attendant as she asked. “Has the Martial Competition of the Ten Dynasties ended?”
“Young Miss, the Martial Competition of the Ten Dynasties wasn’t held in our Darkhan Dynasty… According to my knowledge, the Martial Competition of the Ten Dynasties will be held one year after the Dynasty Martial Competition of our Darkhan Dynasty ends. It ought to have ended a few days ago,” said the attendant.
“Then do you know where the Martial Competition of the Ten Dynasties was held?” asked Han Xue Nai.
“Young Miss, you must be joking. How could people like us know this?” The attendant laughed bitterly.
“Young Miss, you want to know where the Martial Competition of the Ten Dynasties was held?” Suddenly, a frivolous voice sounded out, and a young man in embroidered clothes arrived before Han Xue Nai’s table under the escort of two servants.
“What? You know about it?” Han Xue Nai sized up the young man for a moment before asking with slight doubt.
“Of course!” The young man in embroidered clothed raised his head, and he had a proud expression as he looked towards the nearby attendant and said, “Tell this Young Miss who this Young Master is.”
“Yes, yes.” The attendant seemed to be slightly afraid of the young man in embroidered clothes, and he hurriedly said to Han Xue Nai, “Young Miss, this Young Master is the Second Young Master of our Darkhan Dynasty’s Ye Clan, Young Master Ye Xiang. According to my knowledge, the older brother of Young Master Ye Xiang, Young Master Ye Xiao, had gone to participate in the Martial Competition of the Ten Dynasties half a year ago.”
