Translator: EndlessFantasy Translation Editor: EndlessFantasy Translation
“Two young mistresses, if any of you are around, please show yourselves quickly! Please don’t hide from us! Your fiancé is here. He has killed Yang Hong and his son, and he is going to become the Sect Leader of the Yin Yang Sect!”
The two Vice Peak Masters of Yang Peak were searching for the two girls high and low while shouting loudly. Their voices which contained Origin Energy boomed across the landscape loudly and startled the sparrows in the trees. However, not a single human soul was in sight.
“Hmph! They came looking for us as well… What an obvious lie! I can’t believe the Vice Peak Master of Yang Peak stooped that low to tell come up with such an absurd lie to lure us out and capture us! Who does he think we are to fall for that?”
Two women clad in white hid among the bushes in a forest with a tricky terrain. They were Li Fei and Ke’Er who had escaped from Yang Peak.
Li Fei looked at the middle-aged man soaring across the sky and said in a voice filled with disdain, “Big sister Fei’Er, let’s move on.”
Ke’Er said to Li Fei after seeing the Vice Peak Master of Yang Peak leave.
“Mm,” Li Fei agreed, and the two girls quickly flew away from Yang Peak, getting further and further away from the Yin Yang Sect.
Sometimes, fate was indeed that twisted and convoluted.
If it had been Duan Ling Tian or Xiong Quan instead of the Vice Peak Master of Yang Peak searching for Li Fei and Ke Er in this region, they would have been already successfully reunited with Duan Ling Tian.
After the two girls left, Duan Ling Tian and the rest continued to comb the area. However, they did not search in the area where the others had already explored before, leading to Duan Ling Tian missing the opportunity to find the both of them.
They continued their search till dusk, but all they got was dust.
“Young Master, it seems that both young mistresses have already left!” Xiong Quan exclaimed after everyone converged.
Duan Ling Tian’s eyes gleamed, and his face showed signs of melancholy. He then murmured, “I thought I’d be reunited with the both of them this time… I couldn’t have guessed such a sudden change would occur.”
“Master, we will find both the liege ladies.” It was a rare scene of the Gold Thug consoling Duan Ling Tian.
“That’s right.” Feng Tian Wu nodded in agreement with what the Gold Thug said.
“Your Excellency,please accept our request and become the Sect Leader of the Yin Yang Sect. Everyone in the Yin Yang Sect will do your bidding as long as you become the Sect Leader! It’ll also be an easy task finding both your fiancées at that point.”
The Guardian Elder of Yang Peak looked upon Duan Ling Tian and encouraged him further as if it was imperative that he became the Sect Leader of the Yin Yang Sect.
“He’s right.” The two Vice Peak Masters of Yang Peak nodded in agreement with what the Guardian Elder said.
Duan Ling Tian raised his eyebrow and fell into deep thought.
The reason these three senior officials of Yang Peak wanted him to become the Sect Leader of the Yin Yang Sect was to salvage and protect whatever remained of the sect.
As a first-rate force in the Inner Land, the Yin Yang Sect had many powerhouses to keep it safe and prevent enemies from targeting them.
However, because they were a first-rate force, the Yin Yang Sect would have made many foes in their days. Among them, there might be other first-rate forces as well.
If those first-rate forces knew about the condition the Yin Yang Sect was currently in, they would send their powerhouse and eliminate the Yin Yang Sect from this world as soon as they found out.
“Young Master, I think that this old man has a point.” Xiong Quan looked towards Duan Ling Tian and said using voice transmission, “The efficiency of the whole of the Yin Yang Sect finding the two young mistresses is definitely higher than us looking for them by ourselves.
“Of course, even if Young Master decides against becoming the Sect Leader of the Yin Yang Sect, you could still coerce the remaining senior officials of the sect to send out people in search of our two young mistresses by force.
“However, then, I’m afraid they won’t be as motivated in the search,” Xiong Quan expressed to Duan Ling Tian.
After listening to Xiong Quan’s voice transmission, Duan Ling Tian nodded faintly and finally looked towards the three senior officials of the Yin Yang Sect who were staring at him burning gazes. “I agree to your request to become the Sect Leader of the Yin Yang Sect.”
“Greetings, Sect Leader!”
As soon as Duan Ling Tian finished his sentence, the two Vice Peak Masters immediately bowed and greeted Duan Ling Tian with a pleasantly surprised look on their faces.
The Guardian Elder of Yang Peak also lowered his head to acknowledge Duan Ling Tian. However, deep in his eyes, one could pick up the satisfaction that his scheme had been successful.
“Don’t be in a hurry to make me your Sect Leader! I have a necessary condition that all of you must agree to before I agree to become your Sect Leader,” Duan Ling Tian calmly said.
“Please state your condition, Sect Leader,” the two Vice Peak Masters of Yang Peak requested with a curious look as they wondered what condition would this purple-clad youth request.
Even the Guardian Elder’s gaze towards Duan Ling Tian contained some doubt and hesitation, not knowing what sort of condition Duan Ling Tian would request.
“The Yin Yang Sect must be renamed!” There was a glint in Duan Ling Tian’s eyes as his purple robe started to billow without any wind. Duan Ling Tian seemed to have an impressive demeanor and extraordinary temperament, unlike the average Joe.
“A change in our name?!” The three senior officials of the Yin Yang Sect were stunned after listening to Duan Ling Tian’s condition, and they were unable to respond in time.
After they caught their breaths, both the Vice Peak Masters’ brows furrowed as they felt the condition was too harsh.
The name “Yin Yang Sect” was not as simple as merely a sect name. The Yin Yang Sect had been inherited for several thousands of years, and it was the accumulation of their history.
If the Yin Yang Sect was renamed, that was an indication that the Yin Yang Sect had indeed become history. No one would remember that there had ever been a sect called Yin Yang Sect after several hundred years.
“We will accept it!” The Guardian Elder of Yang Peak already nodded in agreement although the two Vice Peak Masters were still hesitating.
The faces of both the Vice Peak Masters of Yang Peak turned aghast with disbelief. They could not imagine that the Guardian Elder would have agreed to such a condition so soon.
The fact was once the Yin Yang Sect changed its name, that meant that it was the end of the sect. From then on, they would no longer be members of the Yin Yang Sect.
The old man understood what was running through the Vice Peak Masters’ mind and he said with a voice filled with disdain, “The Yin Yang Sect will perish in the hands of our enemies in the near future even if we maintain the name. At that time, all the Yin Yang Sect disciples will perish along as well. Is that the ending you want? ”
“Renaming the Yin Yang Sect will save the disciples of the sect along with its foundation and heritage.”
The old man looked at the two Vice Peak Masters with a pair of cold, calm eyes. The latter then became silent. They understood that the old man was right, but they could not accept the fact at the moment.
They had lived there all their lives, and they had already deemed the Yin Yang Sect as home… And now, their home was going to be gone; it was becoming history.
“We agree to it as well.” The two of them gnashed their teeth and finally agreed as well.
“Sect Leader, since you plan to rename the sect, it will require a new name in the future. I don’t know if you have any ideas or inclination on what the new name will be, Sect Leader?” The old man looked at Duan Ling Tian and asked.
“Ling! Tian! Sect!” Duan Ling Tian focused and enunciated word for word. At the same time, his purple robe swayed without any wind as if agreeing with what he just said.
“Ling Tian Sect?” The eyes of everyone present brightened after hearing what Duan Ling Tian uttered.
“Great name!” Xiong Quan was the first to exclaim.
“It’s the same name as Master. How domineering!” The Gold Thug said to flatter Duan Ling Tian at the same time.
“Ling Tian… It also means standing above the sky. This is definitely a domineering name.”
The two Vice Peak Masters of Yang Peak nodded in agreement.
“Sect Leader, is the name the same as yours?” The Guardian Elder of Yang Peak looked at Duan Ling Tian and asked curiously as his eyes flashed.
“Master’s first name is Duan, last name Ling Tian!” The Gold Thug answered the Guardian Elder of Yang Peak before Duan Ling Tian even opened his mouth.
“Ling Tian Sect, the Guardian Elder of Yang Peak, Yun Gang, reporting to Sect Leader.” The Guardian Elder of Yang Peak bowed and paid his respects to Duan Ling Tian, kowtowing at the first available opportunity. He looked humble, modest, and frank.
“Ling Tian Sect, Vice Peak Masters of Yang Peak, You Ping and You An, reporting to Sect Leader.” Soon, the two Vice Peak Masters of Yang Peak followed Yun Gang’s lead and bowed respectfully towards Duan Ling Tian.
“You Ping? You An?” Duan Ling Tian looked at the two persons in front of him; they were an old man and a middle-aged man. “Are the both of you brothers?”
“Yes, Sect Leader.”
The old man nodded. “I’m You Ping, the elder sibling. I’m older than You An by thirteen years. However You An is more talented than me in cultivation as he is just as powerful as I am albeit being thirteen years younger.”
“Sect Leader, I’m You An,” the middle-aged man introduced respectfully.
“I will remember that.” Duan Ling Tian nodded and shifted his gaze towards Yang Peak afar and said, “I don’t know when the volcanic eruption in Yang Peak will stop… For the time being, Yang Peak is inhospitable.”
“The three of you will gather everyone in Yang Peak and accommodate all of them in Yin Peak! Yang Peak will cease to exist from now on. In addition to that, Yin Peak will be known as Ling Tian Peak from now on,” Duan Ling Tian said in a crisp voice.
“Yes,” Yun Gang and the You brothers replied respectfully immediately after Duan Ling Tian finished. Then, they hurried towards Yang Peak to gather the disciples there who were in a mess.
There would no longer be any difference between the disciples of Yang Peak and Yin Peak in the future. There were only disciples of Ling Tian Sect.
Ling Tian Sect, the renamed Yin Yang Sect, had officially stepped into the center stage of the Cloud Continent’s history, merging the people of the Inner Land with Duan Ling Tian as the first Sect Leader of Ling Tian Sect!
“Congratulations, Young Master, on becoming the Sect Leader of Ling Tian Sect… With the heritage inheritance of the Yin Yang Sect and Young Master’s strength, Ling Tian Sect will be a first-rate force immediately after emerging in the central area of the Cloud Continent!” Xiong Quan congratulated Duan Ling Tian.
“Congratulations, Master!” The Gold Thug also congratulated Duan Ling Tian, at the same time bootlicking him, “Master, under your leadership, Ling Tian Sect will create immortal legends in the future… Not to mention overshadowing the two ancient clans!”
“Overshadowing the two ancient clans?” Duan Ling Tian stared intently at the Gold Thug after hearing what he said. “Or else… How about I send you to the two ancient clans as a representative of the Ling Tian Sect to show off our strengths?”
The Gold Thug could not believe that his bootlicking had failed. He laughed awkwardly and forced a charming smile. “I believe you’re able to accomplish it in the future,” the Gold Thug said very confidently of Duan Ling Tian.
“Tian Wu, let’s go over as well… Ling Tian Peak’s over there.”
Duan Ling Tian ignored the Gold Thug and invited Feng Tian Wu to start out. Both of them then made their way to Ling Tian Peak.
