“The Luo Brothers?” After listening to the Voice Transmission from Guo Lu, Duan Ling Tian raised an eyebrow. It seemed like he had heard of the Luo Brothers somewhere before this.
“Great Young Miss Wang, have you heard of the Luo Brothers?” Duan Ling Tian asked Wang Fei Xuan through Voice Transmission when he could not recall where he had heard of them before.
“Isn’t the Luo Brothers the two strongest people among the Mastery Refined Saint Stage disciples in the Heaven Palace? They’re even stronger than Guo Lu… It should be easy for you to defeat any one of them with your current cultivation base. However, if they join forces, you might not necessarily win since you’ve just broken through to the peak of the Refined Saint Stage.” Duan Ling Tian rarely initiated conversations with Wang Fei Xuan. She responded as fast as she could when she heard his question as though she was afraid someone would beat her to it if she was slow to respond.
At this moment, she had completely forgotten that Duan Ling Tian had communicated with her through Voice Transmission. Others would not be able to hear their conversation at all.
“I remember now.” Duan Ling Tian finally remembered it with the help of Wang Fei Xuan’s answer.
Previously, when news of him and Guo Lu had come to a draw was spreading in Heaven Palace, he had heard that Guo Lu was ranked top three among the Mastery Refined Saint Stage disciples in the Heaven Palace. His strength was slightly inferior to a pair of twin brothers, the Luo Brothers.
However, he did not pay much attention to it because, in his eyes, the Luo Brothers’ strength was not much different from Guo Lu. If he wanted to, he could easily defeat them.
“The twin brothers are telepathic?” Since Duan Ling Tian had only heard about them in passing, he did not know much about them. He was a little curious after hearing Guo Lu and Wang Fei Xuan’s words.
“Senior Brother Guo Lu, I don’t know the Luo Brothers. Why would they challenge me?” Duan Ling Tian asked through Voice Transmission.
Guo Lu did not bother to hide it and reveal to Duan Ling Tian the enmity he had with the Luo Brothers previously. He said apologetically, “Junior Brother Ling Tian, I’m sorry. I don’t mean to involve you in this. However, both of them had gone overboard. Moreover, I believe it won’t be difficult for you to defeat any one of them with your current strength.”
“However, if they want to join forces, don’t accept their challenge. Under those circumstances, no one would say anything even if you don’t fight them. People would only say they’re useless since they can only fight you if they join forces,” Guo Lu said again to remind Duan Ling Tian.
When Duan Ling Tian heard Guo Lu spoke about how eager the Luo Brothers were to have a duel with him, he already had a bad impression of them.
If they were eager to duel in general, it might be just them being eager in the pursuit of the Martial Dao.
However, the Luo Brothers would not even let go of those who had lost to them. For instance, Guo Lu had already surrendered, and yet, they continued with the beating. Moreover, they also provoked him and forced him to attack just to humiliate him. He was disgusted by both their behaviors.
“Only a Saint Stage prodigy like Ling Tian is worthy of the great Young Miss Wang of the Tyrannic Saber Mansion.’
More and more people began to gather around. In addition to the Heaven Palace’s disciples, there were also disciples from the Earth Palace, Mystical Palace, and Yellow Palace.
The men were looking at Ling Tian enviously, and the women were looking at Wang Fei Xuan enviously.
Wang Fei Xuan was attractive to the men who were present, but Duan Ling Tian was also quite attractive to the women who were present.
Shortly after, a middle-aged Heaven Palace’s disciple looked at Duan Ling Tian and asked with a smile, “Junior Brother Ling Tian, we’re all curious about this. Is it true you’ve broken through to the peak of the Refined Saint Stage after coming out from the Spirit Pool?”
As soon as he finished asking his questions, all eyes turned to look at Duan Ling Tian in unison. They were all curious about this matter. This included Wang Fei Xuan.
Three days ago, Wang Fei Xuan had asked Duan Ling Tian if he had broken through to the peak of the Refined Saint Stage. However, Duan Ling Tian only smiled in response to her question.
Although she was almost certain Duan Ling Tian had broken through to the peak of the Refined Saint Stage, she still wanted to hear the answer from Duan Ling Tian’s mouth.
Duan Ling Tian only smiled faintly when he was put on the spot. “Is that important?”
Was it important?
No one expected Duan Ling Tian’s answer, and everyone fell silent. Most people even thought to themselves that Duan Ling Tian did not break through to the peak of the Refined Saint Stage since he had answered that way.
“Humph! How mysterious!” A loud voice resonated in the air abruptly just as the scene turned silent from Duan Ling Tian’s reply.
Following that, two tall figures emerged from the crowd and entered Duan Ling Tian’s line of sight. They were two identical young men dressed in white. The person who had spoken had a black mole between his brows.
“He’s the younger twin, Luo He!” At this moment, Guo Lu’s Voice Transmission sounded in Duan Ling Tian’s ear promptly. He said to Duan Ling Tian, “The one with a red mole between his brows is the elder brother, Luo Shan.”
Luo Shan and Luo He.
Duan Ling Tian nodded while he glanced at both of them coldly. He could sense the hostility in both their eyes.
If it was not because of Guo Lu’s explanation, he would have been baffled why these two people would look at him with such hostility. However, he was no longer surprised since Guo Lu had told him everything.
“It’s the Luo Brothers!”
“This Luo He is rude. Does he have enmity with Ling Tian?”
“I’m not sure.”
“Judging by the look of things, I find it hard to believe there’s no enmity between them.”
The spectators were surprised, but they were looking at the Luo Brothers expectantly since they appeared in such a domineering and confrontational manner.
Guo Lu stood shoulder to shoulder with Duan Ling Tian as he looked at Luo He with a grim expression and asked, “Mysterious? Luo He, what do you mean?”
“Isn’t that the act he’s going for?” Luo He said mockingly, “If he has broken through to the peak of the Refined Saint Stage, why won’t he just admit it? In my opinion, although he has immersed himself in the Heaven Palace’s Spirit Pool, he certainly hasn’t broken through to the peak of the Refined Saint Stage… The peak of the Refined Saint Stage is not so easy to enter after all!”
“Guo Lu, you’re living backward, aren’t you?” Luo Shan looked at Guo Lu and sneered. “He’s just a rookie who has just joined the Mystical Sky Mansion, and yet, you’re currying favor with him like a dog…”
Guo Lu did not expect Luo Shan to be so vicious with his words. His face instantly turned red in anger. “What crap are you talking?”
“Crap?” The sneer on Luo Shan’s face became even more apparent. “If I’m talking crap, why are you standing by him and standing up for him?”
“He’s my friend,” Guo Lu said in a deep voice.
“Friend? Hilarious!” Luo Shan said dismissively, “As far as I know, you’ve only met him once before today. Moreover, you even fought the first time you met. Today’s the second time you’re meeting each other, and you say he’s your friend? Are you trying to tell me that ‘out of blows, friendship grows’?”
“So what about it?” Guo Lu sneered.
Just as Luo Shan opened his mouth to speak, a ‘Pa’ sound reverberated in the air. It was the sound of Duan Ling Tian’s hand landing on Guo Lu’s shoulder. “Senior Brother Guo Lu, some people don’t have friends. If you talk to him about friendship, it’s as futile as a wolf howling at the moon!”
Howling at the moon!
Once Duan Ling Tian finished his sentence, everyone present on the scene began to give Luo Shan strange looks.
In the Heaven Palace of Mystical Sky Mansion, the Luo Brothers indeed did not have many friends due to their arrogance. Even if they had friends, they were all just fair-weather friends.
Duan Ling Tian’s words landed where it would hurt the Luo Brothers the most. Both their expressions instantly darkened.
“Howling at the moon… Haha, that’s accurate.” Many people in the crowd laughed.
Most of these people were not afraid of the Luo Brothers. Some of these people were from the Main Mansion. They were powerhouses on the Mystical Sky Mansion’s Mystical Sky Ranking. They were disciples at the Eminent Saint Stage!
The corner of Guo Lu’s lips could not help but twitch when he heard Duan Ling Tian’s words. At the same time, he nodded solemnly and played along. “You’re right, Junior Brother Ling Tian, I’ve cared too much.”
“Ling Tian, everyone says you’re strong and have a high innate talent. I didn’t expect you to have such a glib tongue. You’re widely acknowledged as the strongest person among the younger generation, do you dare to fight me?” Luo He challenged Duan Ling Tian as he took a step forward. He glared fiercely at him with a dark expression on his face.
Although most people expected this to happen, it still caused a commotion when it finally happened.
Luo He had challenged Ling Tian!
Everyone present, especially disciples from the Heaven Palace, was very familiar with Luo He.
Luo He was a Mastery Refined Saint Stage Martial Cultivator. His strength was ranked second among the Heaven Palace’s Mastery Refined Saint Stage disciples. He was second only to his twin brother, Luo Shan.
As the Heaven Palace’s disciples, Luo He’s strength was widely acknowledged.
Even among all of the Mastery Refined Saint Stage disciples in the Mystical Sky Mansion, Luo He could easily be ranked fifth.
Unlike Luo He, Ling Tian had only joined the Mystical Sky Mansion three months ago. Although that might be the case, Ling Tian was more well known compared to Luo He.
In the Heaven Palace, perhaps, everyone knew Luo He and Ling Tian. However, when it came to the entire Mystical Sky Mansion, Ling Tian was more famous because he was widely acknowledged as the strongest person among the younger generation. There were even rumors that the Mansion Master of Mystical Sky Mansion was interested in taking Ling Tian in as his direct disciple.
However, Luo He had decided to challenge Duan Ling Tian today!
“Isn’t Luo He afraid that Ling Tian has already broken through to the peak of the Refined Saint Stage?” Many people looked at each other as they whispered among themselves.
“Just like Luo He said, based on Ling Tian’s reaction earlier, likely, he hasn’t broken through to the peak of the Refined Saint Stage… Perhaps, that’s why he dares to challenge Ling Tian!” More and more people whispered among themselves.
