Chapter 1155: Furious Over His Confidante! Tearing Yang Peak With His Sword!
Translator: EndlessFantasy Translation Editor: EndlessFantasy Translation
When Luo Ping questioned him with almost everyone at the summit watching Yun Gang, a calm voice came from the sky above. “I killed him.”
“Who’s that?!” Instantly, everyone including Luo Ping had a change in their expressions. They did not expect someone to be hiding in the sky above them.
When they looked up, they only saw a purple figure descending from the sky, followed by three figures behind.
However, everyone’s eyes were fixated on the leading purple figure. They had selectively ignored the other three.
The purple figure was a young man who looked around twenty-five years of age with sword-like eyebrows and starry eyes, and he was clad in a purple robe. He was rather handsome and dapper.
As soon as he appeared, the eyes of quite a few young female disciples from Yin Peak lit up as their hearts longed for love.
However, the most significant doubt in their minds now was the identity of that handsome, purple-clad youth. The person who had responded to Vice Peak Master Luo seemed to be him.
“Did he… did he just say that he killed Peak Master Yang Hong?” Many female disciples of Yin Peak were dumbstruck.
“At his age, it seems to be unlikely!” A lot of them doubted it.
“Age? What can one’s age represent? Perhaps, he’s a demon!” There were also some Yin Peak’s female disciples who did not think so.
Luo Ping’s eyes were focused on the purple-clad youth who had descended from the sky. Without knowing why she actually felt a hint of danger when she looked at the man with a vacant expression.
As a woman, in addition to being the Vice Peak Master of Yin Peak of the Yin Yang Sect, she actually had a stronger intuition compared to an ordinary woman.
Her instincts told her that this purple-clad youth was not that innocent. Maybe Peak Master Yang Hong really did die in his hands.
When everyone was looking confusedly at Duan Ling Tian, wondering about his identity and questioning whether he was capable of killing Peak Master Yang Hong of Yang Peak, Yun Gang and the You brothers beside him took two steps forward and bowed respectfully to Duan Ling Tian.
At first, when Yun Gang and the You brothers had advanced two steps forward with great momentum, it drew the attention of many people including the Yang Peak disciples. They thought that the three of them were going to attack the purple-clad youth.
However, they never imagined that after the three of them took two steps forward, not only did they not attack the purple-clad youth who had descended from the sky, but they had even bowed to him and honored him as the Sect Leader.
In any case, the actions of Yun Gang and the You brothers stirred up a commotion. Everyone present including Luo Ping as well as the rest of the Elders of Yin Peak and Yang Peak were shocked.
“Did Elder Yun and both of the Vice Peak Masters of Yang Peak just address the purple-clad youth as Sect Leader?” A female disciple from Yin Peak gulped and asked hesitantly.
“Seems like it.” The other female disciple beside her nodded.
“We, the Yin Yang Sect, seldom have a Sect Leader… Today, Yun Gang Elder starts by saying that Peak Master Yang Hong was killed and then addresses him as the Sect Leader. Could it be that he wanted to be our Sect Leader of the Yin Yang Sect?”
“Even if he’s strong, he did kill Peak Master Yang Hong, our Peak Master of Yang Peak… Someone like that wouldn’t be suitable to be our Sect Leader, would he?”
“If he were really so strong, he could force us to make him the Sect Leader by force, then what can we do?”
The people present were discussing among themselves with a bit more bleakness in their tone as they spoke.
After all, it was the Cloud Continent where the strong were revered!
As long as one was strong enough, they could do whatever they liked. In fact, they could still be the Sect Leader of a sect after killing the senior officials of the said sect.
“I’m Duan Ling Tian!”
While everyone was talking about him and sizing him up with funny looks, Duan Ling Tian opened his mouth and spoke in a thunderous voice. Everyone present heard him like thunder piercing their ears!
“I recognize this voice… Wasn’t it the voice that spread all around Yin Peak?” Soon, a lot of them recognized Duan Ling Tian’s voice.
“I’m at the summit.”
They still remembered that the voice had just uttered a short and confusing phrase back then, and after that, the Guardian Elder of Yang Peak, Yun Gang’s sounded on time.
He had asked everyone to gather at the summit of Yin Peak and brought all of the Elders of Yang Peaks and disciples along with both Vice Peak Masters.
“Maybe all of you think my name is unfamiliar… What about the names Ke’Er and Li Fei? Are they familiar to you?” Duan Ling Tian continued saying.
Ke’Er? Li Fei?
After Duan Ling Tian finished his sentence, the scene descended into a short silence, but moments later it became noisy.
“He knows Ke’Er and Li Fei?” Luo Ping’s gaze towards Duan Ling Tian softened. She was the Junior Sister who happened to be close to the other Vice Peak Master of Yin Peak, Hua Ying, who was also the master of both Ke’Er and Li Fei.
Not too long ago, Li Fei had been captured, and Ke’Er was forced to marry the son of the Peak Master of Yang Peak. She had personally gone to reason with the Peak Master of Yang Peak, Yang Hong, but she was chased out.
In addition to that, Yang Hong had threated her that if she dared to interfere, he would break into Yin Peak’s forbidden area and kill both the Peak Master of Yin Peak and her Senior Sister Hua Ying.
She was weaker than Yang Hong and taking both the recovering senior officials who were in closed-door cultivation into account, she chose to be patient.
Honestly, when she heard that Yang Hong was dead, the only feeling in her heart was joy.
“He knows Junior Sister Ke’Er and Junior Sister Li Fei?”
“Who is he? Besides, where are Junior Sisters Ke’Er and Junior Sister Li Fei, Junior Sister? Why haven’t we seen them?”
“Not only are Junior Sister Ke’Er and Junior Sister Li Fei absent, even Senior Sister Yang Xue isn’t here.”
Many of the female disciples from Yin Peak were looking around, trying to find Ke’Er, Li Fei, and Yang Xue, but they were nowhere to be seen.
“Ke’Er? Wasn’t she the female disciple who was forced by the Peak Master to marry Junior Brother Yang Fei?”
“Also that Li Fei… Peak Master imprisoned her to threaten Ke’Er.”
“A lot of people were dissatisfied about that including me… Nevertheless, words of people with a lowly position don’t matter.”
“The reason he killed the Peak Master was related to Ke’Er and Li Fei?”
Many male disciples from Yang Peak were chatting about it. As they spoke, all their eyes landed on Duan Ling Tian. They were filled with doubts and expectations.
“I remember now!” At that moment, a disciple from Yin Peak shouted. It alerted many people and attracted a lot of attention.
The female disciple from Yin Peak said in excitement when she saw the attention on her, “I’ve heard Senior Sister Yang Xue mention the name of Junior Sister Ke’Er and Junior Sister Li Fei’s fiancé… Their fiancé was called Duan Ling Tian.”
After the female disciple blurted this out, the people around her were in an uproar.
The fact that Ke’Er and Li Fei had a fiancé and that the both of them served him was not rare to those from Yin Peak.
However, most people did not know the name of their fiancé.
After the revelation, they finally reacted.
“So, he’s the fiancé of Junior Sister Ke’Er and Junior Sister Li Fei!”
“Does this mean that he came to our Yin Yang Sect for Junior Sister Ke’Er and Junior Sister Li Fei?”
“I never expected Junior Sister Ke’Er and Junior Sister Li Fei’s fiancé to be so strong that he can even kill Peak Master Yang Hong and make Elder Yun and both the Vice Peak Masters of Yang Peak to submit to him.”
“I used to wonder… Knowing Junior Sister Ke’Er and Junior Sister Li Fei, any one of them was enough to find an extremely outstanding man, so why would they share a husband? Now, I finally understand.”
“Such an outstanding man! I’d be willing to share with others too if it were up to me.”
“You? Please look in a mirror! Do you think Junior Sister Ke’Er and Junior Sister Li Fei’s man would ever fall for you?”
A group of female disciples from Yin Peak was discussing among themselves as their gaze landed on Duan Ling Tian in unison. Needless to say, they were looking at Duan Ling Tian fawningly.
Soon, the news that Duan Ling Tian was the fiancé of Ke’Er and Li Fei spread all over the summit.
“That’s right! I’m Ke’Er and Li Fei’s fiancé!” At that moment, Duan Ling Tian opened his mouth again and admitted.
At once, the summit quietened again.
“The reason I came this time was to take both of my fiancées away from the Yin Yang Sect… I never expected so many changes and incidents.” Under everyone’s watchful eyes, Duan Ling Tian spoke slowly and made a dramatic pause.
“As for what happened exactly… You Ping, you’ll do the talking.” Duan Ling Tian looked at the older of the You brothers who was also one of the Vice Peak Masters of Yang Peak.
Originally, Duan Ling Tian wanted to let Yun Gang speak. However, without knowing why, he felt a little uncomfortable when he glanced at Yun Gang.
It was the keen instinct that had been cultivated in his past life from being in the special forces. His instincts told him that Yun Gang was a complicated person; he was not that simple and trustworthy.
“Yes.” Under the eyes of Yun Gang, whose face was slightly glum, You Ping stepped forward and caught everyone’s attention.
In the beginning, You Ping told them about the incident whereby Duan Ling Tian’s sword tore through Yang Peak and caused a volcanic eruption.
For a time, there was another row amongst the people present.
They never expected that the scarily young purple-clad youth was so fierce! Furious over his fiancées, he had torn Yang Peak apart with his sword!
However, while a few people blamed Duan Ling Tian for that disaster, most of the blame was put on the dead Peak Master of Yang Peak, Yang Hong.
After all, the disaster happened because Yang Hong had forced his fiancée to marry his son.
Otherwise, why would someone attack Yang Peak?
Were they too bored?
As for those disciples of Yang Peak who had died because of the volcanic eruption, they were undoubtedly indirectly killed by Yang Hong.
“Then, Yang Peak was completely covered in lava. Elder Yun, You An, and I arrived at the summit of Yang Peak in the first instance,” You Ping continued.
“After we arrived, Yang Hong and his son followed suit. That was the moment our Sect Leader appeared.” When he said that, You Ping looked at Duan Ling Tian.
