Chapter 1752: Dispute
Translator: EndlessFantasy Translation Editor: EndlessFantasy Translation
Gao Peng no longer mentioned working together again after he flashed an apologetic smile to Duan Ling Tian. He could not accept that Liu Jian would be given the priority to comprehend a high-grade Divine Ability Relic first since he thought Liu Jian was just a hindrance. From the beginning until the end, he acted as though he was in the wrong in front of Duan Ling Tian.
Duan Ling Tian nodded at Gao Peng before he turned to look at Wang Fei Xuan and said through Voice Transmission, “Great Young Miss Wang, not bad.” His tone was filled with admiration.
Not only did Wang Fei Xuan managed to dismiss Gao Peng with just a few words, but it also removed Duan Ling Tian from the awkward position he was in. She even managed to evoke guilt in Gao Peng. He sincerely admired her technique.
“Even if you reject him, he wouldn’t have dared to say anything or hold any grudge,” Wang Fei Xuan replied through Voice Transmission as well as she rolled her eyes at Duan Ling Tian.
Indeed, with Duan Ling Tian’s prowess, Gao Peng would not dare hold any grudge even if Duan Ling Tian had rejected him directly.
Upon hearing her words, Duan Ling Tian smiled awkwardly.
“Fei Xuan!” At this moment, a voice called out. Duan Ling Tian and the others were not strangers to the voice. It belonged to Zhao Ji.
When Duan Ling Tian heard this, he frowned. He looked at Wang Fei Xuan with a look in his eyes as though he was asking if she knew him.
When Wang Fei Xuan saw the question in his eyes, she shook her head. At the same time, she turned around with a solemn expression on her face and looked at Zhao Ji who brought his two lackeys with him. He approached them, and she said, ‘Do you know me?”
When Zhao Ji approached them, he ignored Duan Ling Tian completely. His burning gaze was solely focused on Wang Fei Xuan as he said, “Fei Xuan, don’t tell me you’ve forgotten me. I’m Brother Zhao Ji… Don’t you remember I followed by my father to visit your father at the Tyrannic Saber Mansion once when you were three years old?”
When she heard his words, she replied indifferently without any consideration for his feelings, “I don’t remember this, and I don’t remember my grandfather mentioning this before.”
She should be wary of Zhao Ji, but when she saw him trying to woo her in such a manner, it only aroused a sense of disgust in her. Moreover, she even showed her displeasure through her words.
She only had one thought in her mind. She hoped that Duan Ling Tian would not misunderstand things. Besides, she really did not know Zhao Ji at all, and her grandfather really did not mention him to her at all. She was also uncertain if Zhao Ji’s words were true or not.
“What?!” When Zhao Ji heard Wang Fei Xuan’s words, he was shocked. “Don’t tell me your grandfather has never told you there’s a marriage arrangement between us? The marriage agreement was agreed upon when you were three years old!”
As soon as Zhao Ji’s words left his mouth, the entire place broke into an uproar.
When the crowd shifted their eyes to Wang Fei Xuan, Duan Ling Tian also shifted his gaze to her. He did not expect there was a marriage arrangement between Wang Fei Xuan and this good-for-nothing disciple.
“No way! Zhao Ji and Miss Fei Xuan actually have a marriage arrangement?”
“Why haven’t I heard of this before?”
“That’s right! Nobody has heard of it at all!”
“If Zhao Ji really does have a marriage arrangement with Wang Fei Xuan, I’m sure this news would’ve long spread out in the Mystical Sky District long ago. How could we possibly not know about it?”
“Could Zhao Ji be lying?”
The group of Mystical Sky Mansion’s disciples in the surrounding whispered among themselves. Many of them looked at Zhao Ji skeptically.
“Marriage arrangement?” Upon hearing Zhao Ji’s words, Wang Fei Xuan burst out laughing instead. “Zhao Ji, are you dreaming? If I really have a marriage arrangement with you, there’s no way I wouldn’t know about it. Moreover, would my grandfather not tell me about it? What a joke!”
The moment her words left her mouth, even more people were certain Zhao Ji was lying.
“I said we have a marriage arrangement, so there’s definitely a marriage arrangement.” Faced with everyone’s skeptical looks, Zhao Ji sneered. “After some time, when my father comes out of closed-door cultivation, I’ll ask him to personally visit the Tyrannic Saber Mansion to propose marriage. I believe your grandfather won’t reject a marriage proposal from our family.”
When he reached the end of his sentence, a hint of craze could be seen in his eyes. At the same time, he transmitted his voice to Wang Fei Xuan, “Wang Fei Xuan, you’re lucky that I fell for you!”
Upon hearing his Voice Transmission, hints of disgust were apparent in Wang Fei Xuan’s eyes as she made her stance clear by saying, “You want me, Wang Fei Xuan, to marry you? You wish!”
“I’m afraid it’s not up to you to make the decision.” Zhao Ji’s evil-looking sneer turned wider. Judging from his gaze as he looked at her, it was as though he already had her in his palm.
When Wang Fei Xuan heard his words, her expression turned grave immediately.
If Zhao Ji’s father really went to their Tyrannic Saber Mansion to propose marriage, it would be indeed difficult for her grandfather to reject it. If he rejected it, it would offend Zhao Ji’s father, the Vice Mansion Master of Mystical Sky Mansion. Apart from that, they would also offend Zhao Ji’s grandfather, one of the two Guardians of the Mystical Sky Mansion.
Although the Mystical Sky Mansion would never make things difficult for the Tyrannic Saber Mansion due to Zhao Ji’s personal affair, and her grandfather was not afraid his father at all, her grandfather still had to be wary of his grandfather since he was an elite powerhouse in the Mystical Sky Mansion. His strength was only inferior to the Mansion Master of the Mystical Sky Mansion.
At this moment, many people were looking at Wang Fei Xuan with a sympathetic gaze. Suddenly, a voice said, “How noisy!”
The crowd only saw a flash before their eyes as though they were blinded by the sun for a moment before they heard the sound of an explosion reverberating in the air.
Under the watchful eyes of the crowd, a specter-like figure appeared at the spot Zhao Ji was originally standing at. Meanwhile, Zhao Ji was sent flying into the distance. He appeared extremely wretched as he was sent flying and threw up a mouthful of blood that decorated the sky like red roses.
The crowd shifted their eyes silently to the figure that was standing at Zhao Ji’s original spot.
Along with a loud sound, Zhao Ji fell violently to the ground. He rolled on the ground a few times before his True Origin finally freed itself from the restraint and helped stabilize him.
When Zhao Ji stood up, his face was as pale as a sheet of paper. However, his expression was extremely grim, and his eyes gleamed terrifyingly.
“Ling Tian! How dare you sneaked an attack on me? You’re seeking death!” Zhao Ji stared at the young man who sent him flying. The look in his eyes and the tone of his voice was filled with killing intent.
“Sneak attack?” When Duan Ling Tian heard his words, he smiled nonchalantly. “Then, does this mean you’re unhappy with my sneak attack? How about this? Let’s fight this out fair and square. I’ll allow you to make the first three moves.”
Fight it out fair and square! Letting him make the first three moves!
The moment Duan Ling Tian’s words left his mouth, the crowd regained their senses. Many of them looked at Zhao Ji mockingly.
Based on what they knew, Zhao Ji was only an Intermediate Refined Saint Stage Martial Cultivator even though his background was extraordinary. If he really fought with Ling Tian in a fair fight, it would be equivalent to him digging his own grave!
Who was Ling Tian?
He was the stronger person among the younger generation in the Mystical Sky Mansion! He had not even reached the age of forty, but his cultivation base was already at the peak of the Refined Saint Stage!
With Zhao Ji’s strength, how could he be a match to someone like that?
Even if Ling Tian allowed Zhao Ji to make the first three moves, and he only used defensive techniques, it would still be impossible for Zhao Ji to break his defense. The gap between their strength was just too wide.
Faced with Duan Ling Tian’s challenge, Zhao Ji’s expression changed drastically. His face turned green before it paled.
He was not an idiot. There was no way he would accept Duan Ling Tian’s challenge. Even if Duan Ling Tian allowed him to make the first three moves, he would only be digging his own grave.
Since everyone’s attention was focused on Zhao Ji, nobody realized that one of the two Heaven Palace’s disciples who followed Zhao Ji had left quietly. After he left the summit and the Heaven Palace, he went to the Main Mansion.
‘As expected, he cares about me.’ When Wang Fei Xuan saw Duan Ling Tian seeking revenge on her behalf, a huge smile appeared on her face. Her eyes were gentle as she looked at him.
Zhao Ji stared coldly at Duan Ling Tian as he asked in a deep voice, “Ling Tian, don’t be too arrogant! I didn’t look for trouble with you, is there a need for you to injure me?”
“Why did I injure you?” Duan Ling Tian smiled. “Don’t tell me you really don’t know why I injured you?”
“If you don’t give me an explanation, I won’t let this matter go! Don’t think you can do as you wish in the Mystical Sky Mansion just because you’re strong and have high innate talent. Let me tell you, there are many people in the Mystical Sky Mansion who’re even more powerful than you! Any one of my father’s direct disciples is able to make sure you die a terrible death!” When Zhao Ji reached the end of his sentence, he threatened Duan Ling Tian.
“You bullied a weak woman under everyone’s watchful eyes, and yet, you’re acting so righteous.” Duan Ling Tian smirked. He was calm from the beginning until the end. He was not afraid of Zhao Ji at all. In fact, it seemed like he did not pay any attention to Zhao Ji’s threats at all.
“So you were seeking revenge for her?!” Zhao Ji’s eyes shifted from Duan Ling Tian to Wang Fei Xuan before he smirked.
“I’ve made up my mind to make you mine so you’ll definitely be mine. I believe your grandfather, the Mansion Master of Tyrannic Saber Mansion, would agree to my marriage proposal. After we’re married, and I’m done playing with you, I’ll find 100 burly men to play with you!” Naturally, Zhao Ji only said this to Wang Fei Xuan through Voice Transmission.
“Even if I, Wang Fei Xuan, have to die, I’ll never marry you!” Wang Fei Xuan replied bluntly through Voice Transmission. Even if her grandfather gave in to his demand, she would not marry Zhao Ji. She would rather die than marry him.
“Good! Very good! Let’s wait and see then!” Zhao Ji’s Voice Transmission this time seemed to be filled with rage. In the end, he added again after he had calmed down, “My man has already gone to the Mystical Sky Mansion to invite my senior brother over… When my senior brother arrives, I’ll let you witness with your own eyes the tragic outcome of that fellow who sought revenge on your behalf.”
Wang Fei Xuan was not afraid of death, but she would never put Duan Ling Tian in danger for her own sake no matter what.
“Hurry up! Tell Senior Brother Wang Pi that we need Vice Palace Master Xiao Yi. Zhao Ji has already asked one of his men to invite his senior brother from the Main Mansion over. I suspect his senior brother is his father’s direct disciple and an Eminent Saint Stage disciple on the Mystical Sky Ranking!” Wang Fei Xuan warned Duan Ling Tian immediately through Voice Transmission. Her tone was filled with anxiousness.
