Chapter 855: Pitiable
Translator: KurazyTolanzuraytor Editor: JayC
“No wonder the people of Driftcloud Town say you’re worse than an animal, they aren’t wrong in the slightest.” A wisp of coldness arose on the corners of Duan Ling Tian’s mouth as he looked at Chen An who laughed loudly.
“Duan Ling Tian, if I was you, I’d quickly flee for my life and not waste time here… But even if you escape Driftcloud Town, you might not be able to escape Senior Ke’s hands!” Chen An withdrew his unrestrained laughter, and he looked at Duan Ling Tian as if he was looking at the dead.
“Do you think that a dignified elder of the Five Element Sect would be so stupid?” Duan Ling Tian suddenly started laughing, laughing to the point Chen An felt horrified and couldn’t help but shout coldly. “What do you mean by this?”
“What do I mean?” Duan Ling Tian glanced deeply at Chen An. “Could it be that you aren’t clear of what I mean than anyone else? Perhaps it was I that injured your older brother, yet why did I injure your older brother? Do you think that elder of the Five Element Sect would be unable to find out that it was you that led your older brother into a trap?”
“You’re talking nonsense!” Chen An’s face went grim when Duan Ling Tian pointed out his worries, and he roared furiously as if he wanted to use a loud voice to conceal the lack of confidence in his heart.
“I’m talking nonsense?” The smile revealed on Duan Ling Tian’s face grew even more brilliant, and then he said, “Alright… I’ll make a trip to the Chen Clan with you! Let’s see if that elder of the Five Element Sect hates you, the cause of everything, or me, the person that injured your older brother.”
“You… You still dare go to our Chen Clan?” Chen An’s pupils constricted as he said with astonishment, “Aren’t you afraid of death?”
“Death? Even if I die, you’ll probably die before me, right? I’m extremely curious, what expression would that elder of the Five Element Sect possess when the disciple he dotes on the most was led into a trap by his disciples own younger brother.” The smile on Duan Ling Tian’s face remained.
“You… You’re mad! You’re mad!” Chen An’s expression was extremely gloomy as he was really worried that Duan Ling Tian would return to the Chen Clan with him.
He originally thought that his scheme was extremely thorough, and once he brought his heavily injured older brother to the Chen Clan while Duan Ling Tian had fled instead. Then his brother’s Master, the elder of the Five Element Sect, Ke Zheng, would surely spare no costs to pursue and kill Duan Ling Tian.
At that time, Duan Ling Tian would probably not even have the chance to say anything before being killed by Ke Zhen.
Yet now, the development of the matter had completely not moved according to the scheme in his heart. Or perhaps, the person that stood before him was too composed, composed to the point it struck fear in his heart.
“Patriarch Ye, call Little Xuan over… We’ll make a trip to the Chen Clan together! Didn’t this Second Young Master Chen say that I’ve forcefully taken his fiancée? We’ll go face the elder of the Five Element Sect with him. I don’t believe that everyone in the Chen Clan will go along with his lies.” As he finished speaking, the corners of Duan Ling Tian’s mouth curled into a ridiculing smile.
As the Patriarch of the Ye Clan, Ye Ting was naturally not a stupid person, and he vaguely guessed some things from what Duan Ling Tian said earlier.
“Alright! I’ll go bring Little Xuan over now.” As he spoke, Ye Ting transformed into a bolt of lightning that shot towards the little courtyard Ye Xuan resided in.
In the sky, Chen An’s expression was extremely unsightly as he looked at Duan Ling Tian and said with a low voice, “Duan Ling Tian, what exactly do you want to do? What do you want?”
“What do I want to do? What do I want?” Duan Ling Tian looked at Chen An as if he was looking at an idiot and laughed coldly. “Second Young Master Chen, shouldn’t I be asking you these words? I want to ask you what you want to do? What do you want?”
“Out of respect for your father, I didn’t fuss about the things you did in the past… But what have you done now? You deceived your own older brother and used him to deal with me. Do you really think that I, Duan Ling Tian, am an idiot like you and would walk into your trap?” As he finished speaking, Duan Ling Tian slowly spoke a single word from his mouth. “Idiot!”
Duan Ling Tian’s voice was like the sound of an enormous bell that shook Chen An to the point his face went ghastly pale.
Every single word Duan Ling Tian spoke seemed to have transformed into a sledgehammer that collided fiercely on his chest and caused his breathing to become even more hurried.
“Duan Ling Tian.” Finally, Chen An took a deep breath and said slowly, “So long as you ask the members of the Ye Clan not to say anything about what happened today, then I won’t fuss about it with you… As for my older brother, I’ll say that he was heavily injured by an expert of unknown origin.” Chen An speaking like this was obviously a sign of submitting, and at the same time, he admitted that his scheme had failed.
“Oh?” Duan Ling Tian was greatly surprised when he heard Chen An, and then he asked curiously. “But your brother was obviously injured by me… Even he knows that I injured him as well. In this way, wouldn’t the elder of the Five Element Sect find out sooner or later?”
“My older brother dotes on me the most. So long as I admit my mistakes to him, then he’ll surely go along with what I say and will absolutely not sell you out.” Chen An spoke with a low voice.
Chen An words, caused Duan Ling Tian to be unable to help but shoot his gaze at Chen Wei who was heavily injured and unconscious, and his eyes revealed slight pity.
As far as he was concerned, it was truly a sad thing for Chen Wei to possess such a younger brother!
His younger brother had completely taken his affection as a tool that could be used, and it was pitiable.
“I really feel bad for your older brother.” Duan Ling Tian shook his head and spoke from the bottom of his heart.
“You don’t have to care about this… In any case, we’ll go our separate ways!” As soon as Chen An finished speaking, he wanted to take the unconscious Chen Wei and leave.
Duan Ling Tian flashed out to stop Chen An once more.
Chen An’s face sank, and he said furiously, “Duan Ling Tian, do you really think that it will be beneficial for you if you make a big thing out of this matter? Let me tell you that even if my brother’s master knows the sequence of events, it’s impossible for him to kill me with my brother protecting me! Yet you’re in more danger than me.”
“Is that so? Then I’ll make a trip with you.” Duan Ling Tian laughed fearlessly.
“Madman! You’re a motherf*cking madman!” Chen An roared with a heavy expression.
He’s spoken like that earlier, yet he was actually not confident in his heart. Who knew if his brother’s master would become enraged and kill him before his brother awoke?
“What exactly do you want before you’ll be willing to let go of this matter?” Chen An took a deep breath and asked with a low voice.
Duan Ling Tian paid no attention to him and looked at the two figures that flashed over from the distance. It was Ye Ting who was bringing Ye Xuan along to arrive in the sky above the Ye Clan’s Audience Hall in the blink of an eye.
“Big Brother Duan.” Ye Xuan didn’t look at Chen An but looked at Duan Ling Tian instead, and she asked with a worried expression. “I heard from my father that you injured Chen Wei and still want to go to the Chen Clan?”
“Yes.” Duan Ling Tian nodded with a light smile. “You come with me as well, as I might need your help.”
When he finished speaking, Duan Ling Tian looked at Chen An and restrained him with a raise of his hand before bringing along the unconscious Chen Wei and flying towards the Chen Clan.
Behind him, Ye Ting brought along Ye Xuan who hadn’t stepped into the Void Prying Stage and was incapable of flying herself.
The remaining Ye Clan elders and disciples sighed successively.
“Young Master Duan is really capable!”
“From the beginning until the end, that good for nothing Young Master of the Chen Clan was completely played with in the palm of Young Master Duan’s hand!”
All the Ye Clan disciples looked at Duan Ling Tian’s figure that vanished into the distance with admiration, and they only returned to their senses after Duan Ling Tian’s figure completely vanished before their eyes.
“Big Brother Duan…” Ye Xuan carried slight worry between her brows as she was worried something would happen to Duan Ling Tian.
“Little Xuan, don’t worry… Since Brother Ling Tian has made a decision like this, I believe he knows what he’s doing and will be fine.” Even though Ye Ting was perturbed in his heart as well, but due to his trust towards Duan Ling Tian, he still couldn’t help but console Ye Xuan.
After all, when he went to the Chen Clan to break off the engagement with Duan Ling Tian that day, his feelings were even worse than it was now when he saw the strength Duan Ling Tian revealed was inferior to the Chen Clan’s Supreme Elder.
But later on, Duan Ling Tian had used an unfathomable ability to play with the Supreme Elder in the palms of his hand, and it caused Ye Ting’s feelings to instantly ascend the heavens from hell.
“Okay.” Ye Xuan nodded when she heard Ye Ting’s consolation.
“Duan Ling Tian, let me go! Let me go!” Chen An who was restrained by Duan Ling Tian and brought along to the Chen Clan roared ceaselessly all along the way, and his expression was extremely hideous.
Duan Ling Tian couldn’t be bothered to pay attention to him.
“Duan Ling Tian, so long as you let me go, not only will I remove you from any implication in this matter, I’ll also guarantee that I’ll absolutely not do continue committing evil deeds in the future… It’s true! Believe me! Believe me!” After Chen An noticed being forceful was useless, he chose to submit.
But unfortunately, he neither listened nor bowed to force.
After a short moment, Duan Ling Tian once again arrived in the sky above the Chen Clan Estate.
The reason he wanted to make a big deal out of the matter this time was firstly to teach Chen An a lesson, and secondly because he wanted to join the Five Element Sect through that elder before heading to the treasure vault left behind by the Martial Emperor Stage expert to join Tian Wu and the others.
It was precisely because of this that he didn’t strike ruthlessly when heavily injuring Chen Wei.
Chen Wei’s injuries looked to be extremely heavy, yet so long as he consumed a healing medicinal pill and recuperated slightly, Chen Wei would be able to recover completely in less than half a month.
Chen Clan Audience Hall.
After the elder of the Five Element Sect’s Wood Peak, Ke Zheng, had a meal while accompanied by all the higher-ups of the Chen Clan, he sat at the head seat in the Audience Hall.
Below him sat the Chen Clan’s Patriarch, Chen Dong, and the elders of the Chen Clan.
“Wei is really something… He rarely makes a trip back yet actually even missed the banquet we prepared to celebrate Elder Ke’s arrival.” Chen Dong looked at Ke Zheng with an apologetic expression. “Elder Ke, I’m truly something. It’s surely that youngest son of mine that has dragged Wei out, and I’ll surely teach him a proper lesson once he returns!”
“There’s no harm done.” Ke Zheng shook his head and chuckled. “Chen Wei hasn’t returned for four years, let him go around Driftcloud Town… After all, we’re leaving tomorrow.”
“So quickly?” Chen Dong was shocked greatly. “Elder Ke, I still want to properly entertain you. How about you stay for a few more days?”
“Patriarch Chen, I brought Chen Wei out this time because we really have something to attend to. Because of certain reasons, our Five Element Sect needs to recruit a batch of Void Interpretation Stage martial artists that are below the age of 40. Up until now, our Wood Peak has only recruited two people, and we’re still far away from the expected target.” As Ke Zheng finished speaking, he couldn’t help but sigh. “Our time is extremely tight.”
“Void Interpretation Stage martial artists below the age of 40?” Chen Dong’s eyes couldn’t help but light up when he heard Ke Zheng. “Elder Ke, I thought of a person when you said this… Perhaps I can help recommend him to join the Five Element Sect.”
