Chapter 1737: Two Excess Pieces of Baggage
After rejecting Wang Fei Xuan, Duan Ling Tian returned to his room. He did not care that she was still standing outside and directly closed his room door.
“Speaking of partnering up, I can partner up with Liu Jian and Ren Fei.” After returning to the room, Duan Ling Tian’s heart leaped as he recalled Liu Jian and Ren Fei who had entered the Mystical Sky Mansion and Heaven Palace together with him.
Liu Jian was from the Raging Wave Mansion, and he was also the nephew of Liu Hong Guang, the Second Elder of Raging Wave Mansion.
Ren Fei, on the other hand, was from the Sky Hurdle Mansion. He seemed to have quite a good relationship with Ren Zhong, the Vice Mansion Master of the Sky Hurdle Mansion.
Whether it was Liu Hong Guang or Ren Zhong, Duan Ling Tian had stood both of them up. Up until now, he still felt guilty about it. He kept thinking he had to return the favors if he was presented with an opportunity.
After learning about the situation inside the Saint Martial Secret Zone, Duan Ling Tian felt this would be a good chance to return their favors. If he worked together with Liu Jian and Ren Fei, he could let the two of them comprehend the highest grade Divine Ability Relic inside the Saint Martial Secret Zone. This could be considered as him returning both Liu Hong Guang and Ren Zhong’s favors.
Duan Ling Tian had never liked owing people favors. Naturally, it would be best if he could return it.
‘Come to think of it, it’s all thanks to Wang Fei Xuan that I learned about the situation inside the Saint Martial Secret Zone… Since I’m already planning to work together with Liu Jian and Ren Fei, having an extra person on board is not that big a deal.’ The moment Duan Ling Tian thought of this, he opened his room door again. He discovered Wang Fei Xuan was still there.
However, it seemed as though she had lost her soul as she stood there. She did not regain her senses for a long time.
Wang Fei Xuan was the biological granddaughter of the Mansion Master of Tyrannic Saber Mansion and was the Eldest Miss of the Tyrannic Saber Mansion. In the Tyrannic Saber Mansion. Everybody treated her like a little ancestor, particularly the young disciples in the Tyrannic Saber Mansion who even fought with each other to serve by her side.
One could say that she was God’s favored daughter in the Tyrannic Saber Mansion! Even if she walked out of the Tyrannic Saber Mansion, nobody would dare to look down on her as well because of her background.
Her peers would stick to her like putty when they were with her. If she had any request, they would carry it out for her as well.
However, after coming to the Mystical Sky Mansion and meeting Duan Ling Tian, Wang Fei Xuan was subjected to blows, again and again. All these blows came from the Saint Stage genius named Ling Tian who was also the most outstanding person among the Saint Stage geniuses who had just entered the Mystical Sky Mansion.
Today, she had finally met Ling Tian. Originally, she thought Ling Tian would instantly agree to her request of partnering up. Who knew he did not seem to care at all about working together.
Although she understood the reason why, it was still difficult for her to accept it. She knew she would not be much of a help to Duan Ling Tian with her strength.
The reason it was so difficult for her to accept this was due to the rejection from a man still full of vigor and vitality even though she, a beautiful woman, had taken the initiative to ask him to partner up!
If she did not know he already had three women, she might have thought he detested women.
“Hey!” Just as Wang Fei Xuan was going crazy in her heart, that annoying voice entered her ears in a timely manner. It took her by surprise. She immediately looked toward the source of the voice.
That fellow she hated had somehow appeared in front of her again.
“What?” Wang Fei Xuan was not a clingy woman. Since this man had rejected her, she, naturally, would not be so cheap as to cling on to someone who had given her the cold shoulder.
“I agree to your request of partnering up,” Duan Ling Tian said indifferently when faced with Wang Fei Xuan’s cold countenance. He was not bothered by it at all.
The moment his words left his mouth, Wang Fei Xuan was dumbstruck again.
This fellow who had rejected her request earlier was agreeing to it now?
It was said that women were capricious, but why did she feel that this guy was actually much more capricious than a woman?
“However, I have a condition!” The voice entered Wang Fei Xuan’s ears again, causing her expression to turn grave as she stared at Duan Ling Tian spitefully.
“If you think you can force me to submit to you and take advantage of me, then you’re sorely mistaken! Although I want to join forces with you, I’m not desperate enough to sell myself! Hurmph!” After she finished speaking, she turned and left without waiting for Duan Ling Tian’s response. Her movements were graceful and cool like floating clouds.
Duan Ling Tian was dumbfounded.
This woman actually thought he would make that kind of request?
Did he look like that kind of person?
However, Duan Ling Tian knew if he kept quiet now, it would be no different from admitting he had such thoughts. Due to this reason, he quickly called out to Wang Fei Xuan, “Wait a minute!”
Wang Fei Xuan came to a halt and turned around before glancing coldly at Duan Ling Tian without saying anything.
“Come on, Great Young Miss Wang! Aren’t you too conceited? Do you really think I’m that kind of shameless bastard?” Duan Ling Tian waved his hand and shook his head helplessly. “To be honest, although you’re pretty good-looking and has quite a good body, in my opinion, you’re really not attractive. My two fiancées and one girlfriend are not inferior to you in every aspect.”
Wang Fei Xuan was shocked the moment she heard Duan Ling Tian’s words. She looked into his eyes and saw that he was being honest. She immediately realized she had misunderstood him.
The eyes were the windows to the soul. The eyes would not lie.
At this moment, Wang Fei Xuan’s delicate face turned red, making her appear particularly enchanting.
“What condition do you have?” If it was not an over-the-top condition, she would accept it since she really wanted to partner up with Duan Ling Tian.
Naturally, it sounded nicer to say she was partnering up with Duan Ling Tian, but it was more like riding on his coattails. She believed she had the highest chance of obtaining the high-grade Divine Ability Relic by following Duan Ling Tian.
“I need you to help me to look for two people and ask them to join in our partnership,” Duan Ling Tian told Wang Fei Xuan.
Upon hearing his words, her eyes lit up right away. “Who?!”
In her opinion, Duan Ling Tian had initially refused to cooperate with a Saint Stage genius like her, and now that he had taken the initiative to cooperate with two other people, these two must be far stronger than her.
To her, this was undoubtedly a good thing.
‘I can’t believe this fellow has already made friends with the Saint Stage geniuses in the Mystical Sky Mansion even though he has just entered the Mystical Sky Mansion not long ago. There seem to be only two people below the age of forty whose strength is above mine in the Heaven Palace. Could it be that Duan Ling Tian wants me to go look for them?’ The moment Wang Fei Xuan thought of this, she became excited.
If that was the case, then she would be able to ride on three powerful people’s coattails, and the chances of her getting the high-grade Divine Ability Relic would be very high.
“Liu Jian and Ren Fei,” Duan Ling Tian told Wang Fei Xuan.
The moment these words entered Wang Fei Xuan’s ears, it was as though a bucket of cold water had been thrown on her, washing away the enthusiasm in her heart.
Naturally, she was not unfamiliar with the name Liu Jian and Ren Fei. She had even seen them a few times. They were both young geniuses who came from fourth-rate forces.
Moreover, Ren Fei had even pursued her before. However, he had stopped his attempt after he was beaten into a pulp by her.
“A-Are you close to them?” Wang Fei Xuan asked with a frown on her face. She really could not figure out why this fellow would want to join forces with Liu Jian and Ren Fei. These two fellows were much weaker than her. Not only would they not be of any help, but they would even get in their way.
“I don’t know them.” Duan Ling Tian shook his head.
Wang Fei Xuan, originally, thought Duan Ling Tian wanted to work together with them and helped them because he had a close relationship with them. However, when she heard his reply, she was rendered speechless immediately.
“You don’t know them, but you still want to cooperate with them? Although they’re young geniuses from the Sky Hurdle Mansion and Raging Wave Mansion, did you know their cultivation base has not even entered the Refined Saint Stage? Ren Fei, in particular, he’s merely a Mastery Refined Saint Stage Martial Cultivator!”
When Wang Fei Xuan reached the end of her sentence, she was frustrated.
“Although I don’t know them, I owe both their seniors a favor. I’ve decided to pay off the favors in the Saint Martial Secret Zone,” Duan Ling Tian replied, “If you’re unwilling to work with them, you can refuse. I can look for them myself if you choose to refuse. If you don’t want to cooperate with them, then that means you won’t be cooperating with me.” Duan Ling Tian laid out the options for Wang Fei Xuan.
When she heard his words, she became even glummer.
She had only wanted to join forces with him because she regarded Duan Ling Tian’s strength highly, and she felt he would be able to lead her to greater heights. However, currently, if she wanted to join forces with him, she would have to accept two excess pieces of baggage. To be honest, she felt extremely unwilling.
“So what’s your decision? Great Young Miss Wang, are you done considering it?” Duan Ling Tian asked.
“Alright, I agree to let them join us, but you must guarantee they won’t get in our way,” Wang Fei Xuan said solemnly.
“What? You don’t have confidence in me, Great Young Miss Wang?” Duan Ling Tian smiled nonchalantly.
Perhaps it was Duan Ling Tian’s smile that had affected Wang Fei Xuan and allowed her to sense his confidence, but she no longer said anything and immediately left to look for Liu Jian and Ren Fei.
“What? You want me to join your little group? With that Ling Tian as well?” Originally, when Liu Jian saw Wang Fei Xuan coming to find him, he was a little baffled as to why this Young Miss would look for him. When she told him of her intention, he was delighted.
Wang Fei Xuan and Ling Tian were the two most powerful people among the 37 people who entered the Mystical Sky Mansion previously.
It would be filled with hardship once one entered the Saint Martial Secret Zone. He was just wondering if he should find a few people to join forces with. However, he did not expect before he could make his move, Wang Fei Xuan had already come and made a request.
“If you’re willing, then this matter is confirmed. Naturally, it’s fine as well if you’re unwilling. However, you’ll need to follow me and explain yourself to that fellow. Otherwise, he’ll think I’m lying to him about you being unwilling,” Wang Fei Xuan replied indifferently.
