“Alright.” Duan Ling Tian had a rather good impression of Chen Dong’s frank openness, and he directly agreed.
“Patriarch Ye, please pass on what happened here to Little Xuan… Besides that, I might have to come disturb the Ye Clan for some time later.” Duan Ling Tian looked at Ye Ting and smiled lightly. “This time, Patriarch Ye…probably won’t ask me to get out of your Ye Clan, right?”
The surrounding crowd of spectators were flabbergasted when they heard this.
The Patriarch of the Ye Clan, Ye Ting, had once asked Duan Ling Tian to leave his Ye Clan?
“Has Ye Ting gone mad?”
“Exactly! You can’t find a guest like this even if you searched for one, yet he actually asked Duan Ling Tian to leave?”
Instantly, many people looked at Ye Ting with a strange expression.
Never had they imagined that Ye Ting had once treated Duan Ling Tian in the way. Fortunately, Duan Ling Tian disregarded past grudges, otherwise, could the Ye Clan still exist?
“No! Of course not!” Ye Ting hurriedly shook his head with a bitter smile. If he knew beforehand that Duan Ling Tian possessed such a formidable strength, then he wouldn’t dare treat Duan Ling Tian like that, no matter how brave he was.
When he thought of it now, he still couldn’t help but feel a lingering fear.
If it wasn’t for the good relationship between Duan Ling Tian and his daughter, he would probably be unable to escape calamity.
“Brother Ling Tian, if you don’t mind, you can stay in our Chen Clan for as long as you like. How about it?” Chen Dong’s eyes lit up when he heard Duan Ling Tian wanted to stay in Driftcloud Town for a period of time, and he took the initiative to invite Duan Ling Tian to stay at the Chen Clan.
Ye Ting’s face sank when he heard Chen Dong’s invitation, yet he didn’t dare say anything.
He couldn’t determine where Duan Ling Tian went.
If Duan Ling Tian really wanted to stay in the Chen Clan, then he wouldn’t be able to do anything about it.
Now, he only hoped that Duan Ling Tian would give face to his daughter and return to the Ye Clan to stay for a period of time. In that way, the status of the Ye Clan in Driftcloud Town would rise along with this.
As the Patriarch of a clan, he had many things to consider.
“Thank you, Patriarch Chen, for your good intentions. But Patriarch Ye’s daughter is my good friend, and I’ve already promised her that so long as I don’t leave Driftcloud Town, I’d stay in the Ye Clan,” said Duan Ling Tian to Chen Dong.
“That’s too bad…” Chen Dong sighed, and then he called out. “Brother Ling Tian, please come in.”
When he saw Duan Ling Tian and Chen Dong descend down from the sky to enter the Chen Clan Estate, the expression of Chen An who walked amongst the members of the Chen Clan became even darker.
“Duan Ling Tian… Duan Ling Tian… If you have the balls then keep staying in Driftcloud Town! I’ll surely make Big Brother’s Master teach you a lesson once Big Brother returns!” Chen An’s expression was cold and detached as fierce lightly flickered in his eyes, and the corners of his mouth were suffused with a gloomy smile.
Ye Ting heaved a sigh of relief, and he revealed a happy smile.
“Congratulations, Patriarch Ye! From today onward, your Ye Clan isn’t the same any longer.” Many people congratulated.
“Patriarch Ye, I’m sorry about the last time. We really needed that batch of goods urgently… How about this? I’ll rush out another batch of goods during this period of time and give it to your Ye Clan for half price?” Another person held a flattering smile as he spoke to Ye Ting.
“Boss Hu, if it’s half price, then wouldn’t your merchant group suffer a great loss? The cost of that batch of goods isn’t just half its price, right?” Ye Ting looked at the person that spoke with great shock.
“Hehe… Patriarch Ye, we straightforward people don’t have to resort to insinuations. It’s fine even if I give you that batch of goods for free! But you have to introduce me to that Young brother.” The latter laughed slyly as he spoke.
In the Audience Hall of the Chen Clan Estate.
Duan Ling Tian sat at the head seat, and beneath him was the Chen Clan’s Patriarch, Chen Dong, and the Third Elder, Chen Lei.
“Brother Ling Tian, may I know where you’re from?” Chen Dong asked curiously.
“Patriarch Chen, didn’t I tell you before, even if I tell you my origins, you wouldn’t know?” Duan Ling Tian shook his head and said, “But since you really want to know, then it’s fine to tell you… I’m from the Darkhan Dynasty.”
Chen Dong and Chen Lei looked at each other and saw a perplexed expression in each other’s eyes. Obviously, they’d never heard of such a place.
Chen Dong laughed embarrassedly and asked. “Then can Brother Ling Tian tell me what your relationship is with the Ye Clan?”
Chen Dong was still slightly unable to accept the fact that Duan Ling Tian had helped the Ye Clan to cause trouble in his Chen Clan today. Where did this little freak come from? And why does he just happen to want to help the Ye Clan?
“I owe the Ye Clan’s Young Miss a favor.” Duan Ling Tian replied extremely directly, and then he added. “This favor can’t be returned in my entire lifetime!”
Originally, when he heard Duan Ling Tian say he owed the Ye Clan’s Young Miss a favor, Chen Dong had heaved a sigh of relief as he felt Duan Ling Tian had already returned the favor with his actions earlier.
But what Duan Ling Tian said after caused Chen Dong to be unable to help but laugh bitterly. “That Ye Clan’s Young Miss is really fortunate! She actually made Brother Ling Tian owe her such a great favor.”
“It’s not necessarily good fortune.” Duan Ling Tian shook his head and smiled warmly. “She’s very kindhearted… If it wasn’t for her, it’s very likely that I’d have perished already.”
Duan Ling Tian’s words caused Chen Dong and Chen Lei to be shocked to the point their faces went pale.
According to what Duan Ling Tian said, that Ye Clan’s Young Miss had actually saved his life?
No wonder he said he can’t return it in his entire lifetime!
So it’s a life saving grace!
“Brother Ling Tian, may I ask how the Ye Clan’s Young Miss saved you?” Chen Lei asked curiously.
Chen Dong looked at Duan Ling Tian as well. He was obviously curious as well. He knew the Ye Clan’s Yung Miss, and she was a little girl that hadn’t even stepped into the Void Prying Stage.
Logically speaking, that little strength of hers was utterly incapable of helping Duan Ling Tian, let along saving Duan Ling Tian.
“When I was cultivating some time ago, my Origin Energy move in the wrong direction and caused me to suffer from qi deviation… In the end, I fainted outside Driftcloud Town, and it was she who brought me back to the Ye Clan.”
“I was in deep slumber for an entire 18 days before waking up today. If it wasn’t for her, then perhaps I would have already been eaten by the wild beasts, fierce beasts, or even demon beasts there.” When Duan Ling Tian mentioned Ye Xuan, his smile was warm as he’d completely taken that kindhearted young woman as his own younger sister.
Actually, he still felt a lingering fear when he woke up today.
Fortunately, he’d encountered such a kindhearted young woman. If it was another person with malicious intentions, then the person would probably have killed him for the sake of the Spatial Ring on his hand.
The Spatial Ring on his hand had ownership established upon it by him dripping blood on it. Unless he himself removed the ownership or he died, otherwise others would be unable to establish ownership of the Spatial Ring.
It was precisely because of this that he felt gratitude from the bottom of his heart towards the kindhearted young woman, Ye Xuan.
Chen Dong and Chen Lei looked at each other and laughed bitterly.
Never had they imagined that the sequence of events would be like that.
They asked themselves, if they were to encounter Duan Ling Tian who’d fainted, then under the circumstances that they didn’t know Duan Ling Tian, they would probably have taken Duan Ling Tian’s Spatial Ring before killing Duan Ling Tian.
After all, it was a windfall that came free.
“The Ye Clan’s Young Miss is really kindhearted… That little bastard of my clan is indeed unworthy of her.” Chen Dong sighed.
When he heard Chen Dong mention that good for nothing son of his, Duan Ling Tian seemed to have recalled something, and his face sank slightly. “Patriarch Chen, I admire how you conduct yourself, but I cannot agree with you in terms of how you teach our son… I heard that your son commits all sorts of atrocities in Driftcloud Town! And there’s many young women from good families that have committed suicide or harmed themselves because of him?” As he finished speaking, Duan Ling Tian emitted dense killing intent.
He didn’t feel he was a sage nor did he think of saving the world, but the actions of that good for nothing Young Master of the Chen Clan had violated his bottom line.
“Brother Ling Tian, you’re right, I didn’t teach my son properly.” Chen Dong laughed bitterly. He naturally knew clearly about all those things his son had done, and he’d educated Chen An on numerous occasions and had broken countless amounts of canes because of this.
But his son wouldn’t repent, and he gradually couldn’t be bothered any more.
Otherwise, what else could he do?
Kill his own son with his own two hands?
“Patriarch Chen, out of respect to you, I won’t interfere with what happened in the past… But from today onward, if I hear that you son commits such deeds that cause widespread indignation and discontent, then don’t blame me for not showing mercy!” As Duan Ling Tian finished speaking, he suddenly stood up. Presently, he already didn’t have the mood to continue staying at the Chen Clan.
“Patriarch Chen, Third Elder Chen, farewell!” Duan Ling Tian bid his farewell to Chen Dong and Chen Lei before leaving directly.
When Chen Dong and Chen Lei returned to their senses, Duan Ling Tian had already left the Chen Clan Audience Hall and vanished before their eyes.
“HAHAHAHA…” Unexpectedly, Chen Dong started laughing after Duan Ling Tian left.
“Patriarch, you…” Chen Lei was stunned. He said he wants to kill you son, yet you’re still able to laugh about it?
“From today onwards, let me see if that little bastard still dares act willfully!” Chen Dong muttered to himself before directly leaving the Audience Hall to go look for his youngest son.
The reason that younger son of his was so audacious during these past few years was none other than because he relied on the power of the Chen Clan. The Chen Clan was the number one clan in Driftcloud Town, so there was utterly no one that dared offend the Chen Clan.
Now, there was someone that wasn’t afraid of the Chen Clan who threatened his son, and it allowed him to see hope.
He was unable to manage his son, but there was finally someone who could.
After he entered the courtyard Chen An lived in, he berated Chen An who’d just returned before passing on Duan Ling Tian’s words to Chen An.
Before Chen An returned to his senses, Chen Dong had already left with a happy mood.
“Duan Ling Tian!!” Chen An’s expression was extremely unsightly, and he smashed the stone table in the courtyard with a raise of his hand before gnashing his teeth and saying. “Not only did you interfere with my marriage with Ye Xuan, you actually dare come discipline me!!”
“I’ll surely kill you! Surely!!” Chen An’s eyes were filled with a gloomy cold light as he gnashed his teeth and spoke hatefully.
Ye Clan Estate.
“Young Master Duan, the Patriarch and elders have been waiting… Please come in.” Duan Ling Tian had just arrived at the entrance when a Ye Clan disciple greeted him respectfully and reverently.
“Thank you, Young Master Duan.” Duan Ling Tian had only just entered when he heard a wave of orderly and deafening sounds, and when he raised his head to look, he noticed Ye Ting had actually brought a group of people to bow and thank him in unison.
Shockingly, Ye Xuan was amongst them. At this moment, Ye Xuan’s tightly knit brows had completely eased up, and she’d recovered her lively nature.
