“Patriarch Ye, what’re you…?” Duan Ling Tian was stunned by the scene before him.
Most of the people by Ye Ting’s side were old people, and in terms of age, they were already capable of being his grandfather.
Yet now, these old men were bowing to him, and it caused him to feel slightly uneasy.
“Brother Duan, thank you for what you did for our Ye Clan. From today onward, you’re the most respected guest of our Ye Clan! If there’s anything that you need, our Ye Clan will surely devote every effort to it!” Ye Ting spoke with a serious expression.
“Patriarch Ye, there’s no need to act in this way.” Duan Ling Tian shook his head and then said with a frown, “Moreover, I don’t like these things… Ask all of them to disperse. Little Xuan, let’s go back.” Duan Ling Tian spoke as he called out to Ye Xuan and left directly.
For a time, only Ye Ting and the others remained with bitter smiles on their faces.
The group of Ye Clan elders looked at Duan Ling Tian’s figure that was disappearing into the distance with expressions filled with respect.
They’d heard what happened in the Chen Clan Estate from the Patriarch, and they knew that this violet clothed young man being willing to stay in their Ye Clan was the fortune of their entire Ye Clan!
Even though this might not last for long.
“Big Brother Duan, I’ve heard everything from my Father… You’re really amazing.” On the way, Ye Xuan looked at Duan Ling Tian with an expression of admiration, and then she sighed. “If only I was as formidable as you are… Then I would be able to help my Father protect the Ye Clan.”
“Silly girl, you’re only so young.” Duan Ling Tian rubbed Ye Xuan’s small head affectionately and smiled. “If you really want to cultivate, then Big Brother Duan will pass down a cultivation method to you!”
“Really?!” Ye Xuan’s eyes lit up when she heard this. As far as she was concerned, her Big Brother Duan’s strength was so strong, so a cultivation method he took out would surely be something their Ye Clan’s cultivation method was unable to compare to.
“Of course.” Duan Ling Tian nodded with a smiled and seemed as if he was appeasing a child.
Of course, Ye Xuan was only a young woman at the age of 16 or 17, so she was indeed no different than a child in his eyes.
There was no lack of cultivation methods in Duan Ling Tian’s memories.
Any random cultivation method left behind by the Rebirth Martial Emperor wasn’t something the Ye Clan’s cultivation method could compare to. Besides that, he was also capable of passing down suitable martial skills to Ye Xuan.
As for medicinal pills and spirit weapons, he didn’t lack them at all and could casually refine them.
To a certain extent, Ye Xuan had saved his life, and was a benefactor of his. So, he would try his best to repay this great favor.
Of course, he liked Ye Xuan very much as well, and he’d completely taken Ye Xuan to be his own younger sister.
“How nice would it be if Father and Mother give birth to another younger brother or sister for me.” Duan Ling Tian sighed.
In his precious life, he was an orphan with no father nor mother, let alone brothers and sisters.
He only had a group of comrades that went through life and death with him. Moreover, all of them had stayed forever in the battlefield later on. This was also the most important reason why he chose to retire at that time.
In his previous life, he greatly hoped to possess a warm family, yet it was bound to be wishful thinking.
So to him, being able to arrive in this world was undoubtedly a gift given to him by the heavens, and in this world, he had a father, a mother, and people that he cared about.
If his father and mother were able to make a younger brother or sister for him, then it would undoubtedly make it even more perfect.
Duan Ling Tian temporarily resided in the Ye Clan because he still didn’t understand the situation in Driftcloud Town.
He didn’t know if he would encounter experts that he was unable to deal with and be killed directly as soon as he left the town… He wasn’t alone in this world any longer, so he didn’t dare take the risk.
In the following days, Duan Ling Tian obtained a certain level of understanding towards the eastern area of the northern desert he resided in now from Ye Xuan.
Firstly, there were a total of three great powers in this eastern area of the northern desert.
Of course, in the entire Foreign Lands, these three great powers could only be considered to be third-rate powers. Because they were powers that possessed similar strengths as the Skywolf Fort, Blade Sect, Empyrean Temple, and Emotion Severing Sect in the southern area of the northern desert.
The three great powers were respectively the Five Element Sect, Crimson Moon Sect, and Flying Sand Sect.
“I heard the Chen Clan’s Eldest Young Master, Chen Wei, had joined the Five Element Sect long ago.” Ye Xuan said, “Everyone would raise their thumbs when speaking about Chen Wei in our Driftcloud Town… But so long as his younger brother Chen An is mentioned, everyone would show contempt instead!”
As she finished speaking, Ye Xuan wrinkled her cute little nose as Chen An was the good for nothing Young Master of the Chen Clan that she was almost forced to marry.
“Chen Wei? Five Element Sect?” Duan Ling Tian’s brows raised as he never imagined that Chen Clan’s Patriarch, Chen Dong, had such a promising son that was a complete opposite of Chen An.
Since the Five Element Sect was one of the three great powers of the eastern area of the northern desert, their recruitment of disciples was probably extremely harsh.
Without a certain level of natural talent and comprehension ability, it would be impossible for one to join the sect.
“Looks like it’s as the saying goes, the dragon gave birth to nine sons, and every single one is different.” Duan Ling Tian thought in his heart.
“Right, Big Brother Duan, I heard about something when I went out yesterday…” Ye Xuan looked at Duan Ling Tian and her beautiful face had slight worry on it.
“What?” Duan Ling Tian couldn’t help but be slightly curious when he saw Ye Xuan’s expression.
“I heard someone say that in another few days, members of the Five Element Sect will reside in our Driftcloud Town on their way, and they seem to have come for the sake of recruiting Void Interpretation Stage martial artists below the age of 40.” When she spoke up to here, Ye Xuan’s brows knit together. “Besides Chen Wei who’d already joined the Five Element Sect, there’s probably not a second person who’s a Void Interpretation Stage martial artist below the age of 40 in a tiny place like our Driftcloud Town.”
“So, I guess that Chen Wei is amongst the members of the Five Element Sect, and he’s probably using this opportunity to visit his family! Big brother Duan, why don’t you leave the city and lie low for the next few days, as I’m afraid Chen Wei will look for trouble with you.” As she finished speaking, Ye Xuan had a worried expression.
“The Five Element Sect? It’s recruiting martial artists at the Void Interpretation Stage that are below the age of 40?” Duan Ling Tian was stunned when he heard Ye Xuan, and then a flash of enlightenment appeared in Duan Ling Tian’s mind, causing him to be slightly excited. “Could it be that the Five Element Sect knows of the treasure vault left behind by the Martial Emperor Stage expert?”
“Otherwise, how could there be such a coincidence?” Duan Ling Tian’s gaze lit up, and he became more and more sure.
If it wasn’t for this, would the Five Element Sect send people to recruit disciples from outside?
Moreover, there was a special requirement.
Below the age of 40?
Void Interpretation Stage martial artist?
This was no different than the requirement of the Skywolf Fort, Blade Sect, Empyrean Temple, and Emotion Severing Sect when they recruited disciples at the end of the Martial Competition of the Ten Dynasties.
“Looks like this is a chance for me.” Duan Ling Tian’s eyes flashed as he thought in his heart.
During these few days in the Driftcloud Town’s Ye Clan, he was thinking about how to leave this place while being certain that he would arrive at the Blade Sect safely to join Feng Tian Wu and the others.
He believed that those friends of him would surely be extremely worried about him since he’d vanished suddenly.
Now, he finally had a chance.
The Five Element Sect was his chance.
“The Five Element Sect is obviously making preparations for the treasure vault left behind by that Martial Emperor Stage expert… So long as I join the Five Element Sect temporarily, I’ll surely be able to head to that treasure vault. In that way, I’ll be able to encounter Tian Wu, Su Li, Big Brother Zhang, and the others in the Blade Sect.” Duan Ling Tian made a decision in his heart. “I presume that the Five Element Sect ought to not refuse my entrance.”
This was something Duan Ling Tian was extremely confident of.
Moreover, it was currently the time the Five Element Sect desperately required geniuses, and it would utterly not refuse him from joining.
“Big Brother Duan, did you hear what I said?” Ye Xuan couldn’t help but laugh bitterly when she saw Duan Ling Tian in a trance, and she stretched out her hand to shake Duan Ling Tian’s arm before Duan Ling Tian finally returned to his senses.
“Little Xuan, what’s wrong?” Duan Ling Tian returned to his senses and asked.
“Big Brother Duan, go lie low for the next few days. Chen Wei has an extremely good relationship with that good for nothing younger brother of his. If he really returns to the Chen Clan, then he’ll surely look for trouble with you.” Ye Xuan repeated her words once more, and her beautiful face was filled with an anxious expression.
“Chen Wei? Is he very strong?” Duan Ling Tian laughed confidently. “Little Xuan, don’t forget that even the Chen Clan’s Supreme Elder lost at my hands. Could it be that Chen Wei is even stronger than the Chen Clan’s Supreme Elder?”
“Big brother Duan, Chen Wei might not be a match for you… But since the Five Element Sect has come to recruit disciples, there’s surely be seniors of the sect following along with Chen Wei. I heard that the weakest elder in the Five Element Sect is an existence at the Void Transformation Stage.” Ye Xian said with a worried expression, “Even though they aren’t members of the Chen Clan, yet Chen Wei is a member of the Five Element Sect. If Chen Wei asks them to assist him, then I presume they wouldn’t refuse.”
She was most worried about this.
Even though Chen Wei’s strength wasn’t bad, it couldn’t compare to the Chen Clan’s Supreme Elder, let along be a match for her Big Brother Duan.
But what about the seniors of the sect that came along with Chen Wei?
Even though she was only the Young Miss of the Ye Clan in the tiny Driftcloud Town, the reputation of the Five Element Sect reverberated like thunder in her ears, and it was an existence that the Ye Clan had to look up to.
“Don’t worry, I understand.” Duan Ling Tian was naturally able to discern that Ye Xuan’s concern came from the heart and warmth couldn’t help but arise in his heart, and then he said with a smile, “Little Xuan, I never imagined that your thoughts are so meticulous at such a young age… What plans do you have for yourself in the future?”
“I intend to stay by my father’s side forever and help him take care of the Ye Clan.” Ye Xuan spoke seriously.
“Could it be that you’ve never thought about anything else? For example, leaving Driftcloud Town and joining one of the three great powers to properly experience the outside world?” asked Duan Ling Tian.
“Big Brother Duan, do you think that it’s so easy to join the three great powers?” Ye Xuan laughed bitterly. “Two years ago, the Crimson Moon Sect had once sent people to widely recruit disciples, and they passed by our Driftcloud Town on the way and held a test… But I was eliminated in the first round of the test.”
“Little Xuan, believe your Big Brother Duan… The current you is different from the past you.” Duan Ling Tian smiled.
During these few days he stayed at the Ye Clan, besides passing down some cultivation methods and martial skills to Ye Xuan, Duan Ling Tian has utilized gentle Origin Energy combined with Spiritual Force to fuse into Ye Xuan’s body and helped her cleanse the impurities in her body on many occasions.
It was a method exclusive to the Rebirth Martial Emperor and was recorded within the Rebirth Martial Emperor’s memories, and even though it was inferior to the effects of the 10,000 Year Stalactite Milk, it wasn’t bad either.
Presently, Ye Xuan’s natural talent had already undergone a tremendous change.
