“Ye Xiang?” Han Xue Nai’s beautiful brows knit slightly, and then she couldn’t help but mutter. “Why does it sound like the name of a woman? A man dares take such a name? Truly a shame!”
The young man in embroidered clothes was precisely the Second Young Master of the Ye Clan, Ye Xiang, and his face sank slightly when he heard what Han Xue Nai said.
His name that sounded female had always been a thorn in his heart, and it was a taboo for him that no one had ever dared mention before him!
“My Big Brother Ling Tian’s name is better, that’s the name a man ought to have!” As she finished muttering, Han Xue Nai started smiling.
“Big Brother Ling Tian?” The attendant couldn’t help but exclaim when he heard Han Xue Nai. “Young Miss, the Big Brother Ling Tian you spoke of, could it be that his full name is Duan Ling Tian?”
“Eh? You know my Big Brother Ling Tian?” Han Xue Nai’s eyes lit up when she heard the attendant, and then she said, “Do you know where my Big Brother Ling Tian is?”
“How could I possibly know Young Master Ling Tian… I was only lucky to see him from afar during the Dynasty Martial Competition one year ago. Young Master Ling Tian was too awe-inspiring that day, and in the end, he obtained the honor of being the first in the martial competition of our Darkhan Dynasty!” The attendant smiled. “Presently, Young Master Ling Tian has probably not come back from the venue of the Martial Competition of the Ten Dynasties like the older brother of Young Master Ye Xiang.”
“The first in the Dynasty Martial Competition?”
Han Xue Nai’s eyes lit up as she said with a grin, “As expected of the Big Brother of I, Han Xue Nai, he’s truly amazing… Hey! Ye Hu, oh, wait, Ye Xiang… What’re you running away for? You haven’t told me where the Martial Competition of the Ten Dynasties was held!” Han Xue Nai vanished into thin air before the attendant, and when she appeared once more, she’d already blocked before Ye Xiang who was just intending to sneak off and spoke angrily with her hands on her waist.
Ye Xiang saw something flash before his eyes before noticing a figure had appeared there, and he instantly couldn’t help but reveal a bitter smile.
“Why are all the people by Duan Ling Tian’s side so abnormal? I can’t afford to offend them, so can’t I avoid them?” Ye Xiang’s heart felt exceedingly bitter.
Actually, when he first laid eyes on Han Xue Nai and the green clothed young woman by Han Xue Nai’s side, he had ill intentions in his heart and even wanted to trick them back to the Ye Clan Estate.
But when he heard Han Xue Nai say Duan Ling Tian was her brother, the ill intent in his heart vanished completely as he didn’t dare offend Duan Ling Tian.
Since he couldn’t afford to offend her, couldn’t he avoid her?
But now it would seem that wanting to avoid her wasn’t a simple task.
“I heard my old brother say that it seems to be held in the northern desert’s Ancient Desert City… I only know this. Young Miss, if there’s nothing else, then I’ll be leaving first.” Ye Xiang spoke as he hastily ran out of the restaurant with his two servants, and even faster than a rabbit.
“Northern desert? Ancient Desert City?” Han Xue Nai muttered, and then her eyes lit up. “I remember now! I’ve gone there with Qing Nu… There seems to be a power called Skywolf Fort there, and their Fort Master’s beard is rather fun to play with!”
“I pulled it off completely the last time… A few years have passed now, so it ought to have grown, right?” Han Xue Nai spoke as she held the green clothed young woman’s hand and ran out. “Xue Nai, let’s go! I’ll take you to see a fun person, and we’ll play the game of beard pulling with him!”
The green clothed young woman was the companion that played and even cultivated with Han Xue Nai since a young age, Mu Xue Yi.
The corners of Mu Xue Yi’s mouth couldn’t help but be suffused with a bitter smile when she heard this.
At the same time, her heart was filled with pity towards the Fort Master of the Skywolf Fort.
No good came to anyone targeted by the little devil.
This was something that she knew deeply from experience.
The northern desert belonged to the northern border of the Foreign Lands, and it neighbored the ten Dynasties. Besides that, it occupied an area that was a few tens of times the area of the ten Dynasties.
In the southern area of the northern desert, powers were as numerous as the clouds, and four of those powers reigned supreme.
They were respectively the Skywolf Fort, Blade Sect, Empyrean Temple, and Emotion Severing Sect.
At the east of the northern desert.
Driftcloud Town, Ye Clan Estate.
Within a quiet little courtyard was a young woman around the age of 16 or 17 who was pacing up and down. The young woman had a pretty and delicate appearance, and even though she couldn’t be considered to be peerlessly beautiful, she was a rare beauty.
But the young woman’s brows were knit tightly together at this moment.
“This won’t do! I won’t marry him even if I die!” The young woman gritted her teeth and had a resolute expression.
“This… Where is this?” Suddenly, a confused mutter sounded out from within the room on the left in the little courtyard.
The young woman’s eyes lit up when she heard this voice, and she hurriedly entered into the room.
“You’ve awoken?!” The young woman looked at the violet clothed young man that was sitting up with difficulty, and her intelligent eyes were suffused with an extraordinary splendor.
She was filled with heartfelt admiration towards this man that was able to lay on the bed for the greater part of a month, yet still be able to survive.
“You are?” Duan Ling Tian shook his slightly dizzy head. His stiff body gave him an extremely unfamiliar feeling as if he needed to adapt to it once more, and he revealed a puzzled expression as he looked at the young woman before him.
“I’m Ye Xuan.” The young woman smiled lightly before sighing. “You really can sleep… If I count from the day I found you, you’ve already slept for 18 days.”
“18 days? You said I’ve been unconscious for 18 days?” Duan Ling Tian’s pupils constricted, and he revealed an astonished expression.
At the same time, with a command in his heart, he couldn’t help but heave a sigh of relief after he noticed the Devilseal Tablet lay silently within his Spatial Ring.
His memory was still at the moment he withdrew the Devilseal Tablet that day.
He still remembered that after he pressed his hand onto the Devilseal Tablet, a strange energy suddenly gushed out of the Devilseal Tablet and fused into his arm.
In the blink of an eye, he lost all feeling in his arm.
When he recovered from his shock, he felt a wave of piercing pain in his soul, and then he completely lost all consciousness.
After he lost consciousness, he seemed to have fallen into a state of deep sleep, and under this state, he had an extremely strange dream.
In that dream, his body was completely out of his control. Moreover, he transformed to possess violet hair and scarlet red eyes, causing him to look like a peerless king of devils.
In the dream, he killed the six elders of Skywolf Fort, and in the end, he even saw Feng Wu Dao.
He also remembered that the him in the dream wanted to kill Feng Wu Dao on many occasions, and it was he who exerted all his strength to restrain himself… As he restrained and restrained, he once again lost consciousness.
When he woke next, he noticed that he was within this small room, and he even saw a young woman with a delicate and pretty appearance.
Based on what the young woman said, it seemed like she’d saved him.
Moreover, he’d slept for 18 days?
“Yes.” Subsequently, Duan Ling Tian saw the young woman nod, and based on her appearance, she obviously wasn’t lying and seemed to have no reason to lie.
Duan Ling Tian shook his splitting head, and he took a deep breath before asking. “You… Can you tell me what happened when you encountered me? I don’t remember.”
The young woman nodded, and then she said, “When I encountered you, you were lying in a bed of reeds… I just happened to pass by and saw you, and I noticed you hadn’t died, so I brought you back.”
When she spoke up to here, the young woman laughed lightly. “You figure seems quite balanced, yet I never imagined that you would be rather heavy.”
Duan Ling Tian laughed embarrassedly, and then he asked. “Where is this?”
“This is my home, the Driftcloud Town’s Ye Clan.” The young woman spoke, and then asked. “Right, I’ve already told you my name, yet you haven’t told me yours.”
“I’m Duan Ling Tian.” Duan Ling Tian’s mouth slightly split open and revealed a brilliant smile. “Thank you for saving me.”
“Duan Ling Tian? Then I’ll call you Big Brother Duan, you can call me Little Xuan.” Ye Xuan smiled lightly.
“Alright, Little Xuan.” Duan Ling Tian nodded.
“Big Brother Duan, you’ve slept for 18 days, so you’re surely hungry, right? I’ll go prepare food for you.” Ye Xuan spoke and didn’t wait for Duan Ling Tian to answer before hurriedly leaving the room and the little courtyard.
“She’s really a kind and good young lady.” Duan Ling Tian smiled lightly, then he controlled his body that he wasn’t so accustomed to and got off his bed before walking out of the room, and then he stretched his body in the little courtyard.
“What exactly happened? How did I escape from the claws of those six elders?” After he felt that he’d once again gotten accustomed to his body, Duan Ling Tian’s brows frowned slightly as he’d completely forgotten had happened earlier.
“There’s also that strange dream… Could it be that everything in the dream was true?” Suddenly, a crazy thought like this arose in Duan Ling Tian’s heart for no reason or rhyme, and after this thought arose, it was impossible to suppress and seemed as if the truth was really so.
“If that dream was real… The isn’t the Devilseal Tablet too abnormal?” As Duan Ling Tian muttered to himself, he withdrew the Devilseal Tablet from his Spatial Ring. The Devilseal Tablet was cold to his touch, and it gave Duan Ling Tian a feeling as if they were intimately linked.
“Can you tell me if all that is true?” Duan Ling Tian looked at the Devilseal Tablet and asked, and he seemed to be preaching to deaf ears.
When he saw no reaction from the Devilseal Tablet, Duan Ling Tian put it away and muttered. “Based on what I know now, all of that might be real… Otherwise, it would be impossible for me to survive under the siege of six Skywolf Fort elders! The violet haired and scarlet red eyed me in the dream had a strength so strong, it far surpassed Senior.”
The ‘Senior’ Duan Ling Tian mentioned was precisely the Vice Sect Master of the Blade Sect, Sword 13, an existence at the ninth level of the Void Transformation Stage.
Moreover, even if it was amongst the numerous existences at the ninth level of the Void Transformation Stage, Sword 13’s strength would at least be above average.
This was something that could be perceived from Sword 13’s ability to go against the joint forces of a ninth level Void Transformation Stage and an eighth level Void Transformation Stage Vice Fort Master of Skywolf Fort.
“The me in the dream had a strength that’s probably at the Martial Monarch Stage…” Duan Ling Tian recalled the extremely clear dream and muttered to himself.
“Ta Mu.” Suddenly, with a turn of his thoughts, he recalled Ta Mu, who’d blocked the strike of a Skywolf Fort elder for him and died before his eyes.
If everything in the dream was true, then Ta Mu could be said to have saved him.
Because Ta Mu had won time for him and allowed him to rely on the strength of the Devilseal Tablet to kill the six elders and escape danger.
