Chapter 1069: First Interim Advisor
Translator: EndlessFantasy Translation Editor: EndlessFantasy Translation
Originally, Lu Sou, like the others, thought Duan Ling Tian was just bragging when he said he came to the Lu Clan to be a Revered Elder or an Interim Advisor.
The first thought in Lu Sou’s heart was Duan Ling Tian would certainly die when he saw Duan Ling Tian had ignored the Lu Clan’s Second Young Master’s advice and resolutely killed the Lu clan’s Third Young Master, Lu Huai.
When the Lu Clan’s two strongest Guardian Elders appeared and confronted Duan Ling Tian about the death of Lu Clan’s Third Young Master, Lu Huai and the Second Young Master Lu Bai failed in pleading for mercy, Lu Sou did not think Duan Ling Tian would survive.
However, the subsequent development of the matter was completely beyond his expectation.
When the Lu Clan’s Guardian Elder, Lu Gui was about to kill Duan Ling Tian, Duan Ling Tian manifested a wisp of Pill Fire.
Violet Gold Pill Fire!
Grade one Pill Fire!
He domineeringly revealed his prestigious grade one alchemist identity and completely reversed the situation. Not only did he survive, but he also earned the admiration of everyone present.
Grade one alchemist!
His identity was equivalent to a golden medallion to escape death in a second-rate force like Lu Clan.
That aside, this ridiculously young grade one alchemist had the intention of joining the Lu Clan to become a Revered Elder or an Interim Advisor?
How could he not be excited?
Once this grade one alchemist joined the Lu Clan, maybe he could rely on his status of being on the Second Young Master’s side and ask some questions about refining medicine. As the saying went, ‘A baker’s wife may take a bite out of a bun, and a brewer’s wife may drink from a tun. A fishmonger’s wife may feed on a conger, but a serving man’s wife may starve from hunger.’
Perhaps he might break through and become a grade two alchemist with some enlightenment from this grade one alchemist!
In the Lu clan, there was quite a lot of grade three alchemists but only a few grade two alchemists.
Once he became a grade two alchemist, he would soar in the sky and achieve greatness.
Lu Sou looked at Duan Ling Tian earnestly as he waited for his response.
He prayed anxiously.
He fervently prayed that the grade one alchemist master would not change his mind about the Lu Clan and dismiss the idea of becoming a Lu Clan’s Revered Elder or Interim Advisor due to the unpleasant incident earlier.
However, Lu Sou was not the only one who felt anxious.
Everyone present including Lu Yuan and Lu Gui the two Lu clan Guardian Elders were also feeling anxious.
“Duan Ling Tian…” Lu Bai stared at Duan Ling Tian with a glint in his eyes and an expectant expression.
“After the earlier incident, I wonder if Master Duan Ling Tian would still be willing to join Lu Clan and become the Lu Clan’s Revered Elder or Interim Advisor.”
Everyone had their eyes trained on Duan Ling Tian. They were also curious about his reply.
Naturally, most of their gazes were filled with anticipation and hope.
These people were all confident in their attainment in the Medicine Refinement Dao. All of them felt they would definitely be able to pass the Alchemist Competition organized by the Lu Clan and join the Lu Clan.
They had subconsciously considered themselves as the Lu Clan’s foreign disciples.
In their opinion, if this grade one alchemist master really became the Lu Clan’s Revered Elder or Interim Advisor, they might have a chance to ask some questions regarding the Medicine Refinement Dao in the future. In turn, they would gain some insights and possibly break through.
“Maybe I should reconsider it… Earlier, those two were so keen on killing me.” Duan Ling Tian glanced at Lu Bai before he looked at Lu Yuan and Lu Gui. His eyes narrowed as a faint mocking smile hung on the corner of his mouth.
Lu Bai heard his words, and his face changed dramatically.
“Elder Yuan, Elder Gui… I hope you can apologize to Duan Ling Tian! If the Lu Clan lost a grade one alchemist Interim Advisor because of your impulsiveness, you’ll be considered sinners in the Lu Clan!” Lu Bai immediately turned to look at Lu Yuan and Lu Gui to yell at them, completely disregarding their surroundings.
He had completely ignored Lu Yuan and Lu Gui’s lofty status in the Lu Clan. He knew he had to fight for Duan Ling Tian to stay and become the Lu Clan’s Interim Advisor.
Usually, both of them would feel extremely dissatisfied if Lu Bai yelled at them in public.
However, they did not feel any dissatisfaction today.
Furthermore, as soon as Lu Bai ended his sentence, Lu Yuan and Lu Gui had already bowed at Duan Ling Tian and said in unison, “We apologize for our offense earlier. We hope Master won’t take offense!”
“If Master is willing to join the Lu Clan, both of us will do anything you want to the best of our abilities! We won’t object even if Master wants to punish us!”
A grade one alchemist was too important to the Lu Clan.
Due to this reason, Lu Yuan and Lu Gui who were Martial Monarchs and the Lu Clan’s Guardian Elders were willing to bow, apologize and make promises in order to appease Duan Ling Tian and make him stay.
“It seems the reasons Lu Clan survived for 10,000 years and remained strong are not only because of the protection of the first-rate forces from the Inner Land. It’s because the people from Lu Clan will do anything for their clan. How rare!”
“Yes. As the Lu Clan’s Guardian Elders and Martial Monarch powerhouses, they actually bowed and apologized to make a grade one alchemist stay in the Lu Clan… Regarding this, not many Martial Monarchs from the other forces can do that.”
While the people present were whispering among themselves and praising the resolution of the people from Lu clan, they were also staring intently at Duan Ling Tian.
All of them wanted to know if the other party would be willing to join Lu Clan and become their Revered Elder or Interim Advisor since Lu Yuan and Lu Gui was so sincere.
Suddenly, the air in a distance stirred.
Following that, a loud voice reverberated in the air.
“The Clan Leader of Lu Clan, Lu Rui, along with Guardian Elder, Lu Zhi, and the rest of the elders welcome Master Duan!”
Under everyone’s watchful eyes, a handsome and sturdy middle-aged man dressed in green robe walked abreast with a red-clad old man. A dozen more old men and middle-aged men followed behind them.
In just a blink of an eye, they all landed and stood next to Lu Yuan and Lu Gui as they looked at Duan Ling Tian with admiration in their eyes.
“It’s the Clan Leader of Lu Clan!”
“And the Lu Clan’s other Guardian Elder!”
“Oh, God! The Clan Leader of Lu Clan and all three Guardian Elders personally came! This is rare.”
“All these is because of this master Duan Ling Tian.”
“A grade one alchemist means a lot to the Lu Clan. The Lu Clan will definitely fight for it at all cost.”
After the initial shock, everyone began to discuss among themselves.
Their discussion pushed Duan Ling Tian, a grade one alchemist, to a new height.
“Clan Leader. Elder Lu Zhi.” Duan Ling Tian greeted Lu Rui and Lu Zhi with gleaming eyes. After that, he turned to look at all the Lu Clan’s elders behind them and nodded slightly as a greeting.
Duan Ling Tian was not surprised by the arrival of the Lu Clan’s senior officials.
When he displayed his grade one Pill Fire, he noticed the person from Lu Clan who had summoned Lu Yuan and Lu Gui earlier had quietly left again.
The senior officials led by the Clan Leader of Lu Clan, Lu Rui, was obviously summoned by him as well.
“Master Duan is indeed a rarely seen prodigy in this world. At such a young age, you have not only achieved extraordinary Martial Dao and cultivation, you also have a shocking achievement in the Medicine Refinement Dao. You’re already a grade one alchemist. It’s very admirable,” Lu Rui praised.
These words came from the bottom of his heart without any pretense.
Such a young man with extraordinary Martial Dao and cultivation, in addition to being a grade one alchemist. He could not help but feel shocked even if he was the Clan Leader of the Lu Clan.
“Master Duan, Lu Clan’s juniors have offended you. We hope you won’t take offense to that! If Master Duan doesn’t mind, please come to our Lu Clan’s estate. We’ll treat Master Duan as our guest of honor and compensate you,” Lu Zhi said following that.
After Lu Zhi’s finished his sentence, it was completely silent.
The cause and effect of today’s incident were witnessed by everyone present.
First, Duan Ling Tian had killed a Lu Clan’s elder before he killed the Lu Clan’s Third Young Master.
The former might not be a huge issue, but the latter was the Lu Clan’s prestigious lineal disciple. He was not someone one could kill at will even if Duan Ling Tian was in the right.
Due to that reason, two of Lu Clan’s Guardian Elders came and to kill Duan Ling Tian without asking for his reason.
However, all of that was turned upside down after Duan Ling Tian revealed his grade one alchemist’s identity.
First, the two Lu Clan’s Guardian Elders apologized sincerely.
Then, the Clan Leader of the Lu Clan and another Guardian Elder along with the rest of the Lu Clan’s elders came personally and apologized to Duan Ling Tian with Guardian Elder, Lu Zhi as their representative.
Based on their words, they even wanted to treat Duan Ling Tian who killed one of their Lu Clan’s lineal disciple as the guest of honor and compensate him!
Everyone felt like they could not keep up with the development of this situation.
After they recovered from the shock, they were hit by a pang of realization. They knew it was all because Duan Ling Tian had shown by his ability to manifest a grade one Pill Fire and reveal his identity as a grade one alchemist.
Grade one alchemist!
“Clan leader. Elder Zhi.”
At this time, the Lu Clan’s Second Young Master, Lu Bai, walked over to Lu Rui and Lu Zhi’s side and whispered something to them.
As he spoke, Lu Rui and Lu Zhi’s eyes brightened. Their faces were filled with a pleasant surprise.
“It seems that the Lu Clan’s Second Young Master told them that Master Duan had intended to join the Lu Clan and become the Lu Clan’s Revered Elder or Interim Advisor.”
“That should be it.”
A lot of them secretly guessed.
The subsequent scene proved them right.
“Master Duan, if you’re willing to join us. The Lu Clan is willing to treat you as our first Interim Advisor! In the future, if Master Duan needs anything, Lu Clan will do its best to obtain what you need!”
The Clan Leader of Lu Clan, Lu Rui, cupped his hands and bowed at Duan Ling Tian as he said sincerely, “Please, Master Duan. Please join the Lu Clan and become the Lu Clan’s Interim Elder.”
Following that, the Lu Clan’s Guardian Elder, Lu Zhi, led all of the Lu Clan’s elders and bowed respectfully to invite Duan Ling Tian to become an Interim Elder of the Lu Clan. It was indeed a high status.
At this moment, Lu Bai, Lu Sou along with Lu Yuan and Lu Gui also bowed down one by one and said, “Please, Master Duan! Join Lu clan!”
After that, everyone from Lu Clan bowed and sincerely invited Duan Ling Tian to join the Lu Clan.
Once again, the entire scene descended into silence.
For those present, the scene in front of their eyes was definitely a scene they would remember for the rest of their lives!
