Chapter 1755: Gu Li, The Strongest Person On Mystical Sky Rankings!
Translator: EndlessFantasy Translation Editor: EndlessFantasy Translation
If Ling Tian kneeled down and apologized to Zhao Ji publicly, the incident would definitely spread out in the Mystical Sky Mansion after today.
Under such circumstances, nobody would have a high regard of Ling Tian anymore no matter how high his innate talent was.
Even if Lord Mansion Master had the intention to take him as his disciple, he would most likely change his mind after this incident.
Zhao Bai Ju and Zhao Hei Tu felt at ease immediately.
They ignored Wang Pi’s words.
Wang Pi’s expression turned grim when he saw the murderous gleam in Zhao Bai Ju and Zhao Hei Tu’s eyes. He realized they did not fear his warning. He instantly transmitted his voice to them again. “Zhao Bai Ju, Zhao Hei Tu, I know both of you want to protect Zhao Ji, but are you really willing to take this risk?”
“Wang Pi, stop bluffing and trying to scare us!” Zhao Bai Ju mocked him through Voice Transmission. “If Ling Tian kneels down and apologizes to Little Junior Brother today, do you think Lord Mansion Master will still take a liking to him when news of this spreads out?”
Wang Pi did not expect Zhao Bai Ju to think like this. His expression turned even grimmer. “Do you think Junior Brother Ling Tian’s going to kneel down and apologize to Zhao Ji? You’re dreaming!”
“You’ll find out very soon if I’m dreaming or not.” Zhao Bai Ju smirked. “Wang Pi, I warn you. It’s better to not meddle in this matter! You should know the consequences of offending our Zhao Clan’s progeny. At that time, even your Master, Vice Palace Master Xiao Yi, wouldn’t even be able to protect you!”
What a blatant threat!
Faced with Zhao Bai Ju’s threat, Wang Pi’s face turned shades of green and white. He knew Zhao Bai Ju spoke the truth.
Due to the presence of the Guardian and the Vice Mansion Master in the Zhao Clan, the Zhao Clan could be said to own the entire Mystical Sky Mansion. Whichever Mystical Sky Mansion’s disciple who offended somebody from the Zhao Clan would usually end up badly.
“Wang Pi, think carefully. Do you really want to go against our Zhao Clan’s progeny for the sake of a new disciple?” Zhao Hei Tu looked at Wang Pi and smirked.
“Senior Brother Wang Pi, this incident has nothing to do with you. There’s no reason for you to become enemies with them because of this.” Duan Ling Tian looked at Wang Pi who was standing next to him and smiled. “No matter what, I still need to thank you for standing by my side at this moment, Senior Brother Wang Pi. However, you can just stand at the side and watch how I deal with this myself.” When Duan Ling Tian reached the end of his sentence, he looked at Wang Pi confidently.
However, faced with Duan Ling Tian’s confidence, Wang Pi thought Duan Ling Tian was merely acting so he would feel at ease and not feel worried.
“Junior Brother Ling Tian, do you think that I, Wang Pi, am the type of person who would abandon my friend in the face of danger and escape on my own?” Wang Pi replied with a discontented expression. Based on his words, there was no doubt he intended to stand with Duan Ling Tian.
“Don’t forget me as well!” Wang Fei Xuan chimed in, wanting to step forward. However, Duan Ling Tian waved a hand and forced her to take a step back.
“Why do you want to join in the trouble?” Duan Ling Tian turned to glance at Wang Fei Xuan with discontentment in his eyes. When he saw how worried she was, he had no choice but to transmit his voice to her. “Don’t worry. It’s only two Early Eminent Saint Stage Martial Cultivators. I can still handle them.”
When she heard his words, she was stunned as though she had been struck by a bolt of lightning.
Only two Early Eminent Saint Stage Martial Cultivators?
If it was another Martial Cultivator at the peak of the Refined Saint Stage who said this, the first thing that would come to Wang Fei Xuan’s mind was “What a high-handed comment!”.
However, when these words were uttered by Duan Ling Tian, it gave her a different feeling.
Although she had only known Duan Ling Tian not too long ago, she understood him. She knew if he was not confident, he would not have said such words.
“A Martial Cultivator at the peak of the Refined Saint Stage can deal with Early Eminent Saint Stage Martial Cultivators…” Wang Fei Xuan still could not help but feel this was unbelievable. She felt this was impossible.
Even so, Duan Ling Tian’s confident gaze still made her believe in him.
When Duan Ling Tian saw Wang Fei Xuan no longer insisted on stepping out, he turned around again. He instantly looked at Wang Pi and smiled. “Senior Brother Wang Pi, I know you have good intentions, but these two pieces of trash at the bottom of the Mystical Sky Ranking are really beneath my notice!”
This two trash at the bottom of the Mystical Sky Ranking!
The moment these words left Duan Ling Tian’s mouth, the entire scene fell silent.
If these words were uttered by those Mystical Sky Mansion’s disciples who were ranked at the top of the Mystical Sky Ranking, most people would not feel anything was out of the ordinary. However, these words were uttered by a Mystical Sky Mansion’s disciple who had yet to enter the Mystical Sky Ranking. This gave them a different feeling.
“What a high-handed comment!” Zhao Ji was the first to regain his senses. He said with a smirk, “You’re a new disciple who has yet to enter the Mystical Sky Ranking. How dare you look down on the powerhouses on the Mystical Sky Ranking! How presumptuous!”
Zhao Ji looked at Zhao Bai Ju and Zhao Hei Tu before saying with a vicious expression, “Senior Brother Bai Ju, Senior Brother Hei Tu, since he looks down on both of you, why don’t you two teach him a lesson before making him kneel down and apologize to me!”
“Don’t worry, Little Junior Brother. After I let him taste the pain, I’ll make him kneel in front of you and obediently apologize to you.” Zhao Hei Tu licked his dry lips as a ruthless smile appeared on his face. He glared at Duan Ling Tian fiercely. “Boy, I really have no idea where you get your confidence from! Do you really think you can be mentioned in the same breath with an Eminent Saint Stage powerhouse after breaking through to the peak of the Refined Saint Stage and defeating the Luo Brothers when they joined forces?”
When he was on his way here, he had also learned about the incident that had taken place earlier from Zhao Ji’s lackey.
Zhao Hei Tu was also a Heaven Palace’s disciple so he had heard of the Luo Brothers before.
The moment his words left his mouth, Zhao Hei Tu’s figure flashed before it charged directly at the place in front of Duan Ling Tian. He came to stop, standing closely before him.
At this moment, two sounds of wind whistling in the air sounded.
One of the sounds came from Wang Pi moving his body. His figure charged toward Duan Ling Tian, intending to deal with Zhao Hei Tu for Duan Ling Tian.
Although Duan Ling Tian was confident, Wang Pi felt Duan Ling Tian was merely trying to put him at ease. He did not think a Martial Cultivator at the peak of the Refined Saint Stage could fight against an Early Eminent Saint Stage Martial Cultivator at all. These two people were at a completely different stage from him. When the latter and the former clashed, the latter could easily crush the former.
However, despite Wang Pi’s fast speed, there was another person who was even faster than him.
When he noticed the person who appeared in front of Duan Ling Tian, Wang Pi came to a halt in the distance. At the same time, he stared at the person who appeared in front of Duan Ling Tian in bewilderment. “Why him? Don’t tell me Junior Brother Ling Tian knows him as well?”
The person who appeared in front of Duan Ling Tian was a young man with a huge-built with pleasing features on his face. Although he did not look particularly dashing, he gave off a sense of unwavering determination.
With just one glance, one could tell this was a brave and unyielding young man.
“Senior Brother Gu Li?” When Zhao Hei Tu saw this sturdy young man appearing in front of Duan Ling Tian, his expression turned grave immediately. There were hints of dread in his eyes. “Y-You know Ling Tian?”
“Gu Li?” Duan Ling Tian was baffled over the appearance of this stranger in front of him. Moreover, it seemed as though he was helping him. He did not know this person, and he was sure he had never seen him before. When he heard Zhao Hei Tu’s words, only then did he learn this sturdy young man’s name was Gu Li.
“Senior Brother Gu Li!” Zhao Bai Ju’s expression turned grave as well when he saw the sturdy young man appearing in front of Duan Ling Tian, shielding him.
“Senior Brother Gu Li!”
“Senior Brother Gu Li!”
At the same time, the Mystical Sky Mansion’s disciples present on the scene, including Wang Pi, bowed at Gu Li respectfully.
When the group of Mystical Sky Mansion’s disciples saw Gu Li, they were even more polite and respectful than when they were faced with Xiao Yi, the Vice Palace Master of Heaven Palace.
Upon seeing this, Duan Ling Tian was astounded. It did not cross his mind that the sturdy young man who appeared to be shielding him had such a high position in the eyes of the Mystical Sky Mansion’s disciples.
He could see that when the group of Mystical Sky Mansion’s disciples bowed at Gu Li, they had sincerely conveyed their respect to him.
“Damn it! How does he know Gu Li?” When Zhao Ji saw this, his face turned a little pale.
Although Zhao Ji was known as the strongest person among the second generation in the Mystical Sky Mansion, that was merely the nickname other people gave him due to his background since his grandfather was one of the two great Guardians of the Mystical Sky Mansion, and his father was the Vice Mansion Master of the Mystical Sky Mansion.
However, there was one person he dreaded among his peers in the Mystical Sky Mansion.
That person was Gu Li!
Gu Li was the son of the other Mystical Sky Mansion’s Guardian. Due to the fact that he only had a son in his old age, the Mystical Sky Mansion’s Guardian was extremely fond of his only son. As long as it was something within his power, he would give it all to this son of his.
Gu Li did not fail to live up to his expectations as well. He was the number one genius to appear in the Mystical Sky Mansion in these several hundred years!
Naturally, this was before Duan Ling Tian came here.
Duan Ling Tian’s innate talent was even more monstrous than Gu Li. One could say that he had completely snatched the glory away from Gu Li for being the number one genius in Mystical Sky Mansion as soon as he arrived.
Gu Li was in his early fifties. However, his cultivation base had already reached the peak of the Eminent Saint Stage!
Gu Li was completely worthy of the title of the strongest person on the Mystical Sky Mansion’s Mystical Sky Ranking!
In the Mystical Sky Mansion, as long as a Mystical Sky Mansion’s disciple had broken through to the Divine Saint Stage from the Eminent Saint Stage, his name would be removed from the Mystical Sky Ranking and would become an Elder.
Gu Li was the strongest person on the Mystical Sky Ranking. This meant he invincible to all those below the Divine Saint Stage in the Mystical Sky Mansion!
“When did Senior Brother Gu Li arrive?”
“I didn’t notice.”
“Judging from Senior Brother Gu Li’s stance, it seems like he intends to shield Ling Tian.”
“As it turns out, Ling Tian actually knows Senior Brother Gu Li. No wonder he’s so calm before this. This is his trump card.”
The Mystical Sky Mansion’s disciples who were standing by the side whispered among themselves. They thought Duan Ling Tian was so calm since the beginning until the end because he knew Gu Li would appear and help him.
When Duan Ling Tian heard the whispers in the surrounding, he was, naturally, rendered speechless.
Prior to this, not only did he not know Gu Li, but he did not even hear anyone mentioning his name before.
