He naturally knew these people.
Early on when he and Duan Ling Tian had arrived at the sky above the Chen Clan Estate and he’d shouted out those offensive words to the Chen Clan, he’d noticed these people mixed within the crowd of spectators.
At that time, he clearly noticed the gaze these people looked at him with, it was a gaze that wished for nothing more than to draw the line completely between them, and not a single one of them took the initiative to greet him.
Not even a voice transmission!
Yet now, Duan Ling Tian was able to play with the strongest person in the Chen Clan, the Supreme Elder, in the palms of his hand. So when they saw his Ye Clan having the upper hand, these people rushed up impatiently.
Of course, Ye Ting didn’t disregard these people because of this. Because these people more or less had a relationship with the Ye Clan, and his Ye Clan had to rely on them in many places.
“Patriarch Ye, who’s that?” The crowd of people surrounded around Ye Ting as they sized up the violet clothed young man in the distance, and their eyes were filled with terror and reverence as they asked Ye Ting curiously.
After all, this violet clothed young man had come along with Ye Ting, and he’d stood out for the sake of the Ye Clan.
“He’s my daughter’s friend.” Ye Ting smiled, and the gaze he looked at Duan Ling Tian now was filled with a complicated expression.
Earlier, when he saw it was impossible for Duan Ling Tian’s strength to defeat the Chen Clan’s Supreme Elder, his heart had already sank to rock bottom, and he completely lost the high spirits he arrived here with.
But right when all his hopes were crushed to pieces and he felt the Ye Clan would be ruined, Duan Ling Tian had shown him such a show.
For a time, his heart that had fallen from heaven to hell had once again soared up into the heavens.
He knew that his daughter was saved! His Ye Clan was saved!
“He’s the friend of your daughter?” Instantly, the eyes of the people by his side lit up, and some of them even revealed spurious expressions. “Patriarch Ye, is it possible between him and your daughter? If your Ye Clan is able to obtain such a superb son-in-law, then it will entirely capable of surpassing the Chen Clan to become the number one clan in Driftcloud Town!”
Ye Ting looked at the violet clothed young man that stood proudly in the distance sky when he heard this, and he had a bitter smile on his face.
He was able to discern that his daughter had a rather good impression of this handsome and outstanding young man, and merely from his daughter’s side, it was completely capable to be developed.
But the problem was the young man utterly had no such thoughts!
He was an experienced person and naturally knew that fondness the young man had towards his daughter was fondness that came from an older brother to a younger sister, and it didn’t have a trace of anything else.
“I’m afraid he hasn’t taken a fancy to my daughter.” Ye Ting sighed. He knew that to a genius favored by the heavens like Duan Ling Tian, his daughter was bound to only be a passing guest in his life.
The surrounding crowd of people weren’t surprised when they heard Ye Ting.
“Even if he can’t be united in marriage with your daughter, with his relationship with your daughter, so long as he remembers to frequently pay visits to Driftcloud Town and visit your Ye Clan, it would be sufficient to guarantee a lifetime of peace for your Ye Clan,” said another person.
“Yeah, Patriarch Ye, your daughter has really encountered an extraordinary figure this time.” Everyone looked at Ye Ting with envious gazes.
Ye Ting’s mood became much better when he heard this.
Bang! Bang! Bang! Bang! Bang!
The Chen Clan’s Supreme Elder was still ceaselessly swinging his enormous hammer about to repeatedly smash onto space, and it resounded out with terrifying explosions that gave rise to surging hot waves.
Presently, in the eyes of the surrounding spectators, the Chen Clan’s Supreme Elder was like a madman.
“Brother Ling Tian, what exactly have you done to the Supreme Elder?” Finally, the Chen Clan’s Patriarch, Chen Dong, gave up his thoughts of trying to wake the old man up as he’d not only used speech and voice transmission, he’d even tried to make a move to subdue the old man.
But every time he approached the old man, the old man would smash his hammer at him, terrifying him to the point of being frightened out of his wits, and he didn’t dare approach the old man.
In the end, no matter how unwilling he was in his heart, he could only yield and compromise with Duan Ling Tian.
“What? Patriarch Chen, do you want to represent the Chen Clan to admit defeat? Since it’s like that, do you still remember the agreement between us?” Duan Ling Tian smiled lightly as he asked.
Chen Dong laughed bitterly and nodded. “Yes, we’ve lost. From today onward, the marriage agreement between the Ye Clan and Chen Clan is annulled!”
“Father!” The expression of Chen An who stood in the distant crowd of the Chen Clan went grim, and then he took a stride forward and roared furiously. “I don’t agree! Ye Xuan is my fiancée, I don’t agree to breaking off the engagement!”
“Hmm?” Duan Ling Tian frowned as he looked at Chen An. So it turns out that this person is the good for nothing Young Master of the Chen Clan that was engaged to Ye Xuan.
No wonder I kept having the feeling this person was looking hatefully at me. So it turns out that he’s the person concerned.
Duan Ling Tian paid no attention to Chen An’s roars, and he looked at Chen Dong with a calm expression instead as he believed that Chen Dong would deal with this properly.
“Shut up!” Chen Dong glared angrily at Chen An and berated in a cold voice. “Put away that lust of yours! If you dare say another word from now onwards, then get out of my Chen Clan right away!”
Chen An was muddled when being berated by Chen Dong, yet he really didn’t dare speak again.
What a joke!
Get out of the Chen Clan?
He wouldn’t dare speak a word no matter what!
He was nothing once he left the Chen Clan.
This was something that he knew well.
Chen An stared hatefully at Duan Ling Tian and gnashed his teeth, and his heart was filled with extreme hatred. “It’s all because of Duan Ling Tian… It’s all because he poked his nose into my affairs!”
At this moment, Chen An wished for nothing more than to slice Duan Ling Tian into thousands of pieces, yet when he recalled how Duan Ling Tian was capable of playing with their Chen Clan’s Supreme Elder in the palm of his hands, coldness couldn’t help but arise in his heart.
“Duan Ling Tian, I’ll surely not let you off! I surely won’t!” Chen An’s eyes were filled with a ruthless sheen as he roared endlessly with rage in his heart.
“Brother Ling Tian, the marriage agreement between the Ye Clan and Chen Clan doesn’t exist any longer from today onward… Besides that, my Chen Clan won’t look for trouble with the Ye Clan because of this.” Chen Dong looked at Duan Ling Tian with a sincere expression, and when he spoke up to here, he looked at the old man that was striking madly in the distance and laughed bitterly. “Now, can you allow our Supreme Elder recover to normal?”
“He’s as normal as everyone else.” Duan Ling Tian spoke indifferently. At the same time, his Spiritual Force moved to directly withdraw his soul skill, whereas the illusory space that enveloped the Chen Clan’s Supreme Elder dispersed along with this.
The Chen Clan’s Supreme Elder had naturally not gone mad, and he was only ceaselessly attacking the fake Duan Ling Tian in the illusory space.
After the illusory space vanished, the Chen Clan’s Supreme Elder noticed Duan Ling Tian with a single glance, and he instantly raised the enormous hammer in his hand and wanted to attack once more.
“Brother Ling Tian, what’re you doing? I’ve already done according to what you said, why haven’t you let the Supreme Elder off?!” A familiar and low voice entered into the ears of the Supreme Elder, and it caused him to tremble as if struck by lightning.
“Patriarch, what did you say? You asked him to let me off?” The Supreme Elder frowned as he looked at Chen Dong, and then he cursed angrily. “Idiot! Could it be that you didn’t see he was only capable of dodging in a sorry state when facing my attacks? So long as I’m given more time, I’ll surely be able to smash him into mush!”
The Supreme Elder’s cursing caused Chen Dong to be stunned for a moment, and then his eyes lit up. “Supreme Elder, you’ve sobered up?”
“I’ve always been sober!” The Supreme Elder frowned and said with slight impatience, “Enough, move aside! We’ll talk once I smash this detestable kid into mush.” As he spoke, he turned around and intended to attack Duan Ling Tian once more.
“Patriarch Chen, if this Senior attacks me once more, I don’t mind allowing him to go mad to his heart’s content!” The corners of Duan Ling Tian’s mouth curled into a cold smile as he spoke straightforwardly to Chen Dong.
“Don’t! Don’t!” Chen Dong was in panic as he hurriedly flashed to stand before Duan Ling Tian and protect Duan Ling Tian behind him before looking at the old man with a bitter smile on his face. “Supreme Elder, you’ve lost already… There’s no need to continue this battle!”
“What do you mean by I’ve already lost? Patriarch, how old are you, could it be that you’ve lost your marbles?!” The old man grunted with displeasure.
“Supreme Elder, if you don’t believe me, feel free to ask Second Elder, Third Elder, and the others… Duan Ling Tian stood there on the spot earlier, yet you didn’t touch him since the beginning until the end, and you only attacked the air by yourself.” Chen Dong was really afraid the old man would attack Duan Ling Tian once more. At that time, Duan Ling Tian would surely use that unfathomable ability to deal with the old man.
Who knew if Duan Ling Tian’s ability would leave any side effects on the person it was used on?
The Supreme Elder was the backbone of their Chen Clan and couldn’t be lost!
“What?!” The old man was stunned when he heard Chen Dong’s solemn words. “How could this be possible! I was clearly chasing that kid while smashing my hammer at him, but he fled quickly, causing me to be unable to hit him! When did I attack the air?”
“Supreme Elder, what the Patriarch said is true.” Meanwhile, Chen Lei looked at the old man and laughed bitterly.
“Yes, Supreme Elder, all of us saw it with our own two eyes.” The other elders of the Chen Clan nodded successively, and they proved that what Chen Dong and Chen Lei said was true.
For a time, the old man couldn’t help but go silent.
He noticed the numerous gazes that swept over from the surroundings now, and he vaguely realized that he might have really done something absurd earlier.
Suddenly, a flash of enlightenment appeared in the old man’s mind, and he looked at Duan Ling Tian as he asked with a complicated gaze. “Did I fall into an illusory realm created by you?”
“Yes.” Duan Ling Tian nodded and didn’t deny it.
“But I clearly didn’t sense the aura or fluctuation of Inscriptions and Inscription Formations.” The old man frowned. Even though he wasn’t an Inscription Master, yet he felt he was capable of easily sensing the aura and fluctuation of Inscriptions and Inscription Formations.
“I didn’t utilize Inscriptions or Inscription Formations.” Duan Ling Tian shook his head. “This is an ability I possess. As for what ability it is, it isn’t convenient for me to tell Senior.”
The old man sighed when he heard this, then he turned around and left slightly dejectedly, and he vanished within the Chen Clan Estate in the blink of an eye.
“Brother Ling Tian, how about having a seat in my Chen Clan Estate?” Meanwhile, Chen Dong looked at Duan Ling Tian and made an invitation. Obviously, he didn’t forget what he had said to Duan Ling Tian earlier.
