Chapter 1413: Mount Hill Order
Translator: EndlessFantasy Translation Editor: EndlessFantasy Translation
Duan Ling Tian and his companions were shocked after listening to the City Governor of Mound Hill City’s words.
Would he be able to cultivate three different moves from a Human Rank Mediocre Saint Grade Martial Tactic to the Impeccable Stage?
It was important to note that the Impeccable Stage was the fifth and highest stage of a move in Saint Grade Martial Tactics.
Su Qi wanted to cultivate all three different moves to the highest stage?
All three of them knew without a doubt that the three moves were the offensive move, defensive move, and movement move… However, they did not think Su Qi would be so ambitious.
Only Duan Ling Tian was not surprised by this.
This was because Duan Ling Tian was also cultivating a Human Rank Prominent Saint Grade Martial Tactic art. Furthermore, the Human Rank Prominent Saint Grade Martial Tactic he was cultivating was not a run-of-the-mill Human Rank Prominent Saint Grade Martial Tactic.
The Human Rank Prominent Saint Grade Martial Tactic he was cultivating had a very powerful defensive move that was comparable to the defensive move of an Earth Rank Saint Grade Martial Tactic.
Only Saint Stage powerhouses were able to cultivate Earth Rank Saint Grade Martial Tactics. Therefore, as long as he was able to successfully cultivate that defensive move, his defense would be impenetrable to anyone beneath the Saint Stage. As long as he used his True Energy and that defensive move, no one among his peers, regardless if they were a Martial Cultivator or a Dao Cultivator, could penetrate his defense.
One could imagine how powerful a move it was to be able to compare to an Earth Rank Saint Grade martial move.
As long as one cultivated any one of the moves in the Colossal Aerolite Arrow until the Competent Stage, it would be comparable to a move at the Impeccable Stage of a Human Rank Mediocre Saint Grade Martial Tactic. That was the difference between the Saint Grade Martial Tactics.
Therefore, Duan Ling Tian was not surprised Su Qi planned to cultivate three different Human Rank Mediocre moves to the Impeccable Stage.
“Who would’ve thought that the Moon Illumination Sect’s entrance exam will be held in half a year’s time.”
Duan Ling Tian was surprised.
He had heard Guo Li talked about the Moon Illumination Sect previously. She also mentioned the relations between the Moon Illumination Sect and the eighteen cities…Therefore, he was only surprised the entrance exam would be held in six months’ time.
“Duan Ling Tian, you’re even more talented than Su Qi…Work hard! I believe you’ll achieve amazing things in the Moon Illumination Sect in the future.” The City Governor of Mound Hill City communicated with Duan Ling Tian through True Energy Voice Transmission. He was very confident about Duan Ling Tian’s ability.
“Yes, teacher! I will work even harder.” Duan Ling Tian nodded.
Duan Ling Tian was more sincere now when he addressed the City Governor of Mound Hill City as Teacher.
“Ok.” The City Governor of Mound Hill City nodded with a smile. He was very confident and optimistic about Duan Ling Tian.
“I wish to leave the City Governor’s estate for some personal matters, Teacher,” Duan Ling Tian said to the City Governor of Mound Hill City when he was about to return to his chambers in the evening.
The City Governor of Mound Hill City approved his request wordlessly.
Duan Ling Tian left the estate as the sun slowly set in the horizon, holding a small jade tablet that was just given to him by the City Governor of Mound Hill City.
The City Governor of Mound Hill City gathered Ling Yun and the other two people after Duan Ling Tian left the estate.
“Three of you… don’t spread the news about Duan Ling Tian’s strength. Do you understand?” The City Governor of Mound Hill City said solemnly to Ling Yun and the other two people.
If a tree was taller than the canopy, strong winds would definitely destroy it… He did not dare to be careless since there was still more than half a year before the entrance exam of Moon Illumination Sect.
Naturally, he was not worried that anyone would give Duan Ling Tian a hard time in Mound Hill City.
That would be the joke of the century!
If any accident happened to the disciple of the City Governor of Mound Hill City in Mound Hill City, then he should just find tofu and use it to kill himself.
The competition between the eighteen cities managed by the Moon Illumination Sect was extremely fierce. He was worried about the seventeen cities. If they knew another genius, apart from Su Qi, had appeared, it was very likely the seventeen cities would try and sabotage them.
He had to take precaution. It was easy to avoid a direct attack, but it was hard to defend against schemes.
Although three of them were unaware of the City Governor of Mound Hill City’s worries, all of them still agreed without any hesitation.
The City Governor of Mound Hill City nodded in satisfaction.
After Ling Yun and the other two returned to their rooms, the City Governor of Mound Hill City smiled. “I didn’t expect to meet another peerless genius after Su Qi.”
This was his appraisal of Duan Ling Tian.
He did not even say that about Su Qi.
It was obvious he thought Duan Ling Tian was even more talented than Su Qi.
After Duan Ling Tian showed the jade tablet at the entrance of the City Governor’s Estate, the guards respectfully saluted him. They were only at ease after he left the gates of the City Governor’s Estate.
The jade tablet was given to him by the City Governor of Mound Hill City.
“Mound Hill Order…He’s Young Master Su Qi, the pride of the City Governor?” One of the guards mumbled as he looked at Duan Ling Tian’s silhouette.
Mound Hill Order was a representation of the City Governor. There was only two Mound Hill Order in the City Governor’s Estate of Mound Hill City… One of it was in the City Governor’s possession, and the other was awarded to his favorite disciple, Su Qi.
“I’ve seen Lord Su Qi. That’s not him.” The other guard shook his head.
“He’s one of the four new disciples that Lord City Governor recruited, Duan Ling Tian! However, he shouldn’t be stronger than Ling Yun, the leader of the Thirteen Gangster in the Latent Dragon Camp?”
“How come Lord City Governor gave will him the precious Mound Hill Order instead of giving it to Ling Yun? I don’t understand, I don’t understand.”
One of the guards who recognized Duan Ling Tian shook his head.
“I heard he’s from the Mortal Continent…I remember Young Master Su Qi is also from the Mortal Continent. It seems Lord City Governor loves to assist genius martial cultivators from the Mortal Continents.”
Another guard speculated.
Naturally, Duan Ling Tian was unaware of the commotion the jade tablet in his hand had caused.
Although he received the jade tablet from the City Governor of Mound Hill City, he did not know the significance of the jade tablet. All the City Governor told him was he could move freely through the gates of the City Governor’s Estate as long as he wore the jade tablet.
Duan Ling Tian went to the Captain of the City Guards, Hong Yu’s home immediately after leaving the City Governor’s Estate to look for the little girl, Sze Sze.
“Big brother, big brother…”
The little girl immediately leaped on Duan Ling Tian when she saw him. She looked very cute with her rosy cheeks.
Duan Ling Tian looked at the little girl dotingly and asked, “Sze Sze, did you miss your big brother?”
The little girl nodded like a chick pecking on grains. “Sze Sze misses big brother very much. I even dreamed of big brother yesterday.”
Duan Ling Tian asked with a smile, “What was I doing in your dream?”
“I dreamed big brother brought Sze Sze flying in the sky… We flew very high, far higher than the time big brother Hong Yu brought me flying,” the little girl said as she tried to demonstrate the height with her hands.
“Big brother Hong Yu brought you flying?”
Duan Ling Tian laughed and said, ” You haven’t been naughty, have you, Sze Sze?”
“No, Sze Sze’s very obedient … If you don’t believe me, you can ask big sister,” the little girl said as she looked at the beautiful woman standing at the side. She was Hong Yu’s wife.
“Yes, Sze Sze’s very obedient,” Hong Yu’s wife said as she looked at the little girl dotingly.
“Sorry for troubling you during this period of time, sister-in-law.”
Duan Ling Tian looked at Hong Yu’s wife and smiled. He retrieved a spatial ring before passing it to her. He said, “This is for you, sister-in-law.”
“This is …”
However, Hong Yu’s wife did not accept it.
“There are 1,000 eighth-grade Saint Stones in there for you and big brother Hong Yu to use,” Duan Ling Tian said.
1,000 eighth-grade Saint Stones!
Hong Yu’s wife was shocked when she heard Duan Ling Tian’s words.
Although Hong Yu was the Captain of the City Guards, his salary was merely forty grade-eight Saint Stones… Hong Yu needed to save two years’ of salary before he would be able to save 1,000 grade-eight Saint Stones.
“Please put it away, Brother Ling Tian! Please!” When Hong Yu’s wife finally understood Duan Ling Tian’s intention, she refused the spatial ring he had given her.
“Take it, sister-in-law.”
Duan Ling Tian shook his head and smiled. “This is a little thank you gift.”
“Brother Ling Tian, since you are my husband’s brother then you’re not an outsider. You don’t need to regard yourself as an outsider…If I accept your Saint Stones, my husband will definitely be upset.” Hong Yu’s wife continued to refuse. She was extremely unwilling to accept Duan Ling Tian’s Saint Stones.
“If you really insist on giving it, please give it directly to Hong Yu,” Hong Yu’s wife said after seeing how insistent Duan Ling Tian was.
Duan Ling Tian forced a smile on his face, he knew that was the only way.
After Sze Sze went to play with Hong Yu’s son, Duan Ling Tian look at Hong Yu’s wife and asked, “Sister-in-law, did Big Brother Hong discover anything regarding Sze Sze’s background?”
Hong Yu’s wife shook her head and said, “He went to investigate based on what you said and managed to confirm that the people that trafficked Sze Sze are outsiders. They stayed in Mound Hill City for just a day before disappearing.”
Duan Ling Tian sighed after listening to Hong Yu’s wife.
Although Duan Ling Tian knew it was almost impossible to find out the little girl’s background, he still felt disappointed when he heard the news.
On the second floor of an insignificant inn in Mound Hill City. Three men were gathered in a corner room. A youth, a middle-aged man, and an old man.
Both the middle-aged man and the old man was focused on the young man standing before them.
“Uncle Qiang, Elder Lin, Duan Ling Tian finally left the City Governor’s Estate,” the young said excitedly to the other two people as his eyes gleamed with killing intent.
If Duan Ling Tian was around, he would definitely recognize this young man. It was none other than Zheng Jian who was thrown into the manure pit after he was defeated.
Zheng Jian was ranked fifth among the Thirteen Gangsters, but he was expelled from both the City Governor’s estate and the Latent Dragon Camp due to him accidentally killing his distant cousin, Hu Jie.
