Chen Zhi’s breathing quickened as he reluctantly shifted his gaze away from the purple-clad woman to the other woman standing next to her.
This woman had a hint of girlish innocence on her face and the obedience of a pretty girl from a humble background. People could not help but adore her for it.
She had a pretty face, and flaws were difficult to be found on her face.
“The best! The best!” Chen Zhi’s eyes were glowing. At this moment, he was just short of drooling.
Chen Zhi gulped and asked hastily, “Senior You Han… Is that them?”
“That’s right. That’s them… The purple-clad youth beside them is their fiance, Duan Ling Tian,” Martial Emperor You Han said unhurriedly as she nodded. It was as though she was not worried even if the world was in chaos.
When Martial Emperor You Han finished speaking, Chen Zhi disappeared like a gust of wind. When he reappeared, he stood before the group of people from Ling Xuan Peak.
More accurately, he appeared in front of Ke’Er and Li Fei.
“Two Junior Sister, your master has given your hand in marriage to me… Just wait for a few days for my father to come out from his closed-door cultivation, and we can get married,” Chen Zhi said to Ke’Er and Li Fei with what he thought was a dazzling smile.
When Ke’Er and Li Fei heard Chen Zhi’s words, they could not help but feel stunned. They simultaneously looked at Martial Emperor You Han standing at the distance and realized that Martial Emperor You Han was also looking at them.
Martial Emperor You Han’s eyes were filled with indifference.
Ke’Er and Li Fei’s faces immediately sank.
“You have the wrong person… Sister Ke’Er and I do have a master, but she died a few years ago,” Li Fei said faintly to Chen Zhi.
“You’re Junior Sister Li Fei, aren’t you?”
Chen Zhi’ eyes were passionate as he sized Li Fei up. “As the saying goes, ‘Once a master, forever a parent’. It’s unwise for you to sever your relationship with your master for a trash.”
Li Fei’s face turned cold when she heard Chen Zhi’s words.
How could someone else insult her man?
Ke’Er’s face also darkened as her eyes gleamed coldly.
Every dragon had a reverse scale, touch it and one would die!
Duan Ling Tian was undoubtedly their reverse scale.
When the two women were about to attack, a tall figure stood in front of them like a mountain and shielded them behind him. It gave them a sense of security. That person was none other than Duan Ling Tian.
“Get lost!” Duan Ling Tian said slowly as he coolly glanced at Chen Zhi.
At this moment, the smile on Chen Zhi’s face was completely frozen.
As a core disciple of Hidden Fog Island and also the son of the Second Island Master of Hidden Fog Island, even the Hidden Fog Island’s elders had to show him respect, let alone the other core disciples, inner island disciples or outer island disciples.
For the first time in his life, someone dared to ask him to get lost.
“Boy, do you know who I am?” Chen Zhi stared at Duan Ling Tian with a darkened face.
“I don’t care who you are!” Duan Ling Tian said coolly. When he was done speaking, his arms moved, and he attacked as fast as lightning. In just a blink of an eye, a five-colored force left his arm and landed on Chen Zhi.
A loud noise sounded, and the unguarded Chen Zhi was blasted away.
Chen Zhi flew back like a shot arrow, blood spurting out. The blood splattered everywhere like blooming roses. It was so red that it was almost purple.
It was obvious that he was suffering from a serious internal injury.
The entire place was silent.
Even the Hidden Fog Island’s disciples who usually hung out with Chen Zhi were so shocked that it took them a while to check on Chen Zhi’s injury.
“Well, well, well!” The first to react was Martial Emperor You Han. Martial Emperor You Han looked at Duan Ling Tian and repeated the word ‘Well’ three times before she added, “Getting angry because of your women… How bold of you, Duan Ling Tian!”
“Thanks for your compliment, Martial Emperor You Han.” Duan Ling Tian glanced at Martial Emperor You Han indifferently. He had long guessed that Chen Zhi would come to find fault with him because of Martial Emperor You Han’s instigation.
However, did Martial Emperor You Han really think a mere Second Level Martial Emperor Stage martial artist could threaten him?
‘Maybe… his background is not simple.’ Suddenly, a thought appeared in Duan Ling Tian’s mind.
However, his face remained calm without the slightest hint of fear.
If he allowed the other party to disrespect his women because he was afraid of the other party’s identity and background, then he was not a man of integrity.
“Senior Brother Chen!” At this time, many Hidden Fog Island’s disciples finally regained their senses and flew toward Chen Zhi.
Although Chen Zhi’s personality was objectionable, and most of the Hidden Fog Island’s core disciples were dissatisfied with him, no one was willing to offend him because of his status.
Therefore, many people rushed over to fawn over him because of his status. This was the best opportunity to do so. Many Hidden Fog Island’s disciples set off and rushed to Chen Zhi like a group of dogs fighting over a bone. It looked very exaggerated.
“Duan Ling Tian?” No one noticed that Martial Emperor Qing Xuan had lifted his eyebrows and glanced at Duan Ling Tian while Martial Emperor You Han was speaking to Duan Ling Tian.
He shifted his gaze after a glance, but there was a hint of surprise in the depth of his eyes.
“So he’s Duan Ling Tian,” Martial Emperor Qing Xuan muttered. It was as though he knew Duan Ling Tian.
When the Hidden Fog Island’s martial artists came to their senses, they looked at Duan Ling Tian and whispered, “This young man’s so bold! He dared to hurt Chen Zhi.”
Without exception, all of their eyes were filled with pity when they looked at Duan Ling Tian as though he would suffer from a revenge and die immediately.
“Chen Zhi is the only son of the Second Island Master… Not to mention that he might not be a match for Chen Zhi, even if he could win Chen Zhi, the Second Island Master wouldn’t let him go,” someone said.
In most people’s opinion, Duan Ling Tian only managed to injure Chen Zhi earlier because he launched a sneak attack. If they were fighting properly, he might not be able to defeat Chen Zhi.
“That person is the son of the Second Island Master of Hidden Fog Island? Moreover, he’s the only son?” Many Martial Emperor’s disciples and Demon Emperor’s disciples from Cloud Continent were shocked. They did not expect this.
At once, their gaze toward Duan Ling Tian held a little more pity.
Yang Hui’s face changed dramatically.
He naturally knew what being the only son of the Second Island Master of Hidden Fog Island meant.
“The Second Island Master of Hidden Fog Island… I heard he’s at the Eighth Level Martial Emperor Stage! Even Lord Qing Xuan might not necessarily be his match.”
Yang Hui was in despair. He immediately turned to Duan Ling Tian and urged him through Voice Transmission, “Brother Ling Tian, you should quickly escape with your wives… You’ve injured the son of the Second Island Master of Hidden Fog Island. It’s equivalent to offending the Second Island Master of Hidden Fog Island. He won’t let you get away with this.” Yang Hui’s tone was filled with anxiety.
Both Ke’Er and Li Fei also changed their expressions as they looked at Martial Emperor You Han coldly.
At this moment, they were finally aware that everything was part of Martial Emperor You Han’s plan.
Martial Emperor You Han wanted to harm their man.
“Escape?” Duan Ling Tian shook his head after listening to Yang Hui’s words. He suddenly turned and looked in the distance.
An old man surrounded by a young man and a young woman were heading toward them. In just a blink of an eye, they arrived at the venue of the Hidden Fog Martial Competition.
The old man wore a bronze robe. His long hair was tied up with a hair band. His white eyebrows were raised. Somehow, he managed to look imposing without looking fierce.
Although he had white hair and white eyebrows, his face was that of a middle-aged man. He did not look like an old man at all.
The saying ‘One with white hair and a youthful face’ described him perfectly.
As for the young man behind the old man, he looked handsome and had a bit of similarity to the old man. On the other hand, the young woman looked like the living dead. Her eyes were dull, and her pale face made her look even creepier.
Unlike the handsome young man, the young woman looked ordinary. If one were to put her in the crowd, one would have a hard time picking her out from the crowd.
Although her appearance was ordinary, her creepiness was very unique.
“Greetings, Third Island Master.”
“Greetings, Third Island Master.”
After the appearance of the bronze-clad old man, a group of Hidden Fog Island’s core disciples took the lead and bowed at him.
The remaining Hidden Fog Island’s inner island disciples, outer island disciples, and the other Hidden Fog Island’s martial artists followed suit. They did not dare to be negligent.
Among everyone from the Hidden Fog Island, there was only one person who did not bow and greet the bronze-clad old man. That person was Chen Zhi.
Most of Chen Zhi’s injuries were healed after he consumed some Healing Medicinal Pills. He glared at Duan Ling Tian, completely disregarding the Third Island Master of Hidden Fog Island who had just arrived. He said coldly, “You dare to sneak-attack me?”
However, Duan Ling Tian ignored him.
Duan Ling Tian’s gaze landed on the Third Island Master of Hidden Fog Island.
He knew that the arrival of the Third Island Master of Hidden Fog Island meant that the Hidden Fog Martial Competition was about to begin.
However, he did not know whether the Third Island Master of Hidden Fog Island would speak up for Chen Zhi or not.
“I won’t kill you immediately… I’ll leave your life hanging on a thread and slowly torture you.” Chen Zhi flew out. It seemed as though he had transformed into a sharp arrow as he charged at Duan Ling Tian with a great momentum.
In his opinion, he was injured by Duan Ling Tian’s attack earlier because Duan Ling Tian had launched a sneak attack and caught him off-guard.
If he had been alert, he would not be hit.
He was confident that he was stronger than Duan Ling Tian.
When the Origin Energy in Duan Ling Tian’s body stirred, and he was about to attack Chen Zhi, a light reprimand suddenly sounded.
“Enough!” It stopped Chen Zhi.
“Third Island Master… He had hurt me earlier, I must seek revenge!” Chen Zhi said in a low voice as he looked at the Third Island Master.
Obviously, the person who stopped Chen Zhi was the Third Island Master of Hidden Fog Island.
