“Yes, he has been with me for a long time.”
Fang Gan nodded as he reminisced, “More than a hundred years ago when I was younger, I’m the young master of a notable family in the area ruled by the Moon Illumination Sect, the Fang Clan… He’s the martial apprentice by my side who sparred with me. After that, he accompanied me to the Moon Illumination Sect until today.” Fang Gan had a gentle expression on his face when he spoke.
Duan Ling Tian nodded. It was almost exactly like what he had thought.
Duan Ling Tian left the inner court and returned to the outer court after rejecting Fang Gan’s invitation to stay.
Once he arrived near the independent courtyard he was residing in, Duan Ling Tian saw a familiar figure standing outside his independent courtyard.
Duan Ling Tian’s eyes lit up when he saw the figure. He smiled as he greeted that person, “Xiong Hu.”
“Senior Brother Duan.”
Xiong Hu turned around when he heard Duan Ling Tian’s greeting. He had an excited expression on his face. “I didn’t expect so much to happen during the time I was in closed-door cultivation… Duan Ling Tian, you’re too powerful! Now our Mound Hill City really has something to be proud of.”
It was obvious Xiong Hu had heard about Duan Ling Tian’s recent accomplishment after he came out from his closed-door cultivation.
Killing Feng Fan, and defeating an inner court disciple, He Zhong.
When he first heard about it, he was so stunned that he did not react for a long time.
Duan Ling Tian remained calm in the face of Xiong Hu’s excitement, he only smiled faintly. “Xiong Hu, the last time I visited you, you were in closed-door cultivation… Since you’re out now, I should return the Merit Points Teacher gave you,” Duan Ling Tian said as he lifted his arm and retrieved his Crystal Card.
“Senior Brother, you can keep the Merit Points and use it for yourself.” Xiong Hu grinned.
“Are you sure you want me to keep it? Are you sure you don’t want to borrow the Human Rank Primitive Saint Grade Martial Tactic?” Duan Ling Tian stared intently at Xiong Hu, making him feel a little awkward.
He did not put much thought into it. He just thought the Merit Points would be more useful to Duan Ling Tian.
“Come on, you’re a man. Don’t dawdle,” Duan Ling Tian said impatiently.
Only then did Xiong Hu took his Crystal Card out.
However, when he saw the number of Merit Points that Duan Ling Tian transferred to him, he cried out, “Senior Brother Duan, this isn’t right! I remembered Master gave me 20,000 Merit Points… Why did you transfer 250,000 Merit Points?”
“What can you do with 20,000 Merit Points? With this 250,000 Merit Points, you can buy an Earth Rank Saint Weapon with a Two Star Saint Inscription and also borrow a Human Rank Primitive Saint Grade Martial Tactic.”
Duan Ling Tian said, “This is all I can do to help you… As for the Merit Points you’ll need to borrow Human Rank Primitive Saint Grade Martial Tactics in the future, you’ll have to earn it yourself.”
“Senior Brother Duan.” Xiong Hu became a little teary-eyed when he heard Duan Ling Tian’s words. He knew Duan Ling Tian was trying to help him.
Even his master, the City Governor of Mound Hill City, might not necessarily have an Earth Rank Saint Weapon with Two Star Saint Inscription.
“That’s enough. Hurry up and go to the Merit Pavilion,” Duan Ling Tian said. He returned to his own courtyard before Xiong Hu even had a chance to reply.
In regards to giving Xiong Hu so many Merit Points, he had given it a long thought.
Currently, in the Moon Illumination Sect, he had completely offended that inner court elder, Liu Huan… If Liu Huan thought he was hard to deal with, he would definitely change his target to Xiong Hu and Ling Yun.
Xiong Hu and Ling Yun would certainly be in a very miserable state if they could not protect themselves.
Although Liu Huan would not have let people from Mound Hill City go so easily, Duan Ling Tian also played a part in fanning the flames.
Therefore, he did not want Xiong Hu and Ling Yun to lose because of him.
Bai Li Hong would only be done inscribing the Saint Inscription on the Sun Shooting Bow in three days’ time. During those three days, Duan Ling Tian entered the second level of the Seven Treasures Exquisite Pagoda and cultivated for nine days. He came out of after nine days. Naturally, only three days had passed in the outside world.
This time, Duan Ling Tian went alone to Bai Li Hong’s mansion.
“Your Saint Weapon.” Bai Li Hong passed the Sun Shooting Bow back to Duan Ling Tian. After Duan Ling Tian received it, he decided to test it out on the spot. Coincidentally, there was a huge stone in Bai Li Hong’s front yard. Moreover, it was not an ordinary stone.
“Even with your strength, Saint Weapon, and the Penetration Saint Inscription, it’s still too soon for you penetrate this boulder with your arrow,” Bai Li Hong said to Duan Ling Tian.
That boulder was a unique stone in the Dao Martial Saint Land. The metal extracted from it could even be refined into Saint Weapons. Naturally, it could only be refined into Human Rank Saint Weapons.
It definitely would not be easy to penetrate the large stone with his arrow.
Duan Ling Tian remained quiet even after hearing Bai Li Hong’s words. With a raise of his arm, he lifted the Sun Shooting Bow.
In his right hand, True Energy appeared and formed an arrow that he knocked on the bow before he pulled the bowstring back.
“This is the Penetration Saint Inscription?” While Duan Ling Tian pulled the bowstring, his eyes landed on the inconspicuous inscription on it. Obviously, it was the Three Star Saint Inscription, the Penetration Saint Inscription, inscribed by Bai Li Hong.
Without any hesitation, Duan Ling Tian directed some True Energy into it to activate it.
The Penetration Saint Inscription was instantly activated.
Meanwhile, Duan Ling Tian could clearly feel the changes in the arrow made from True Energy. It was as though the arrow acquired the ability to penetrate through everything in just an instant.
After a deep breath, Duan Ling Tian pulled the bowstring back with all his might.
The bowstring sounded softly but sharply.
Bai Li Hong stood aside and stared intently at the scene before him.
He, too, wanted to see how strong this Martial Dao prodigy who was so famous in the outer court was with a Saint Weapon inscribed with the Penetration Saint Inscription.
Once Duan Ling Tian nocked the arrow and pulled the bowstring, he straightened his back. It was as though he had transformed into a strong bow as well.
Suddenly, the strong bow trembled fiercely.
In the next moment, the arrow that was nocked on the bowstring shook and transformed into a streak of light. It flew out and slammed into the boulder, leaving a hole behind.
Before Bai Li Hong managed to regain his senses, he heard another soft noise.
After the True Energy arrow penetrated the boulder, it continued flying out.
At this moment, a scream from outside was heard. Duan Ling Tian could not help but feel shocked. “This… Someone was shot?”
For a moment, Duan Ling Tian did not know what to think. Who was so unlucky?
Duan Ling Tian immediately rushed to the entrance of Bai Li Hong’s mansion and looked outside. He saw an inner court disciple limping away quickly. It was as though he did not want to loiter too long near Bai Li Hong’s mansion without any reason.
‘It seems like Elder Bai Li’s status as a Three Stars Saint Inscription Master is quite high in the Moon Illumination Sect,’ Duan Ling Tian thought to himself. It was not difficult for him to figure this out.
Even the Sect Leader and the few Saint Stage powerhouses in the Moon Illumination Sect had to treat him respectfully, let alone those below them.
The inner court disciple had to be the disciple of an inner court elder. As a disciple of an inner court elder, he would naturally know Bai Li Hong was not someone he could offend.
When Duan Ling Tian returned to Bai Li Hong’s front yard, he realized Bai Li Hong was staring at him as though he was a monster.
“Elder Bai Li, it’s no wonder you’re a Three Star Saint Inscription Master. The Three Star Saint Inscription, the Penetration Saint Inscription, is just too strong,” Duan Ling Tian exclaimed.
That shot did not only penetrate the boulder, it had also penetrated the thick wall before it injured an inner court disciple who was passing by.
“Are you really just a Martial Cultivator at the Perfection Mortal Shedding Stage?” Bai Li Hong muttered as he looked at him intently, ignoring Duan Ling Tian’s words.
“What? Does Elder Bai Li want to verify it with the Spiritual Secret Tactic?” Duan Ling Tian shook his head.
He had suggested this himself. It was equivalent to shooting himself in his feet.
“You’re really at the Perfection Mortal Shedding Stage! You’re truly a little freak,” Bai Li Hong muttered with a gasp.
At this moment, he was even more certain that the master Duan Ling Tian had mentioned was real.
If Duan ling Tian did not have such a mysterious and powerful master behind him, how could he be such a freak?
Bai Li Hong’s thoughts were simple and straightforward.
“With your current strength, you should be able to rank at the top of the Earth Ranking… When you break through to the Paramount Mortal Shedding Stage, I’m afraid that even the no.1 person on the Earth Ranking will have to relinquish his position,” Bai Li Hong said as he looked at Duan Ling Tian with a myriad of emotions in his eyes.
“Elder Bai Li has so much confidence in me?” Duan Ling Tian asked with a smile.
“Humph! I’m just confident about my Saint Inscription.” Bai Li Hong snorted. Naturally, he would not admit that.
Every time he remembered he had given away a Three Star Saint Inscription for free, he felt as though his heart was bleeding.
Even the various materials needed to inscribe a Three Star Saint Inscription were worth around 200,000 to 300,000 Merit Points in the Moon Illumination Sect.
If Duan Ling Tian heard Bai Li Hong’s inner thought, he would definitely curse him.
Bai Li Hong actually sold a Saint Inscription that was worth around 200,000 to 300,000 Merit Points at the exorbitant price of millions of Merit Points. Even the crows were not as black-hearted as him!
“Elder Bai Li, am I going to learn about Saint Inscription from you today?” Duan Ling Tian asked as his eyes glinted.
“I certainly wouldn’t go back on my word since I’ve already promised you… However, you can’t learn the Saint Inscription Dao just because you want to. It’ll depend on your innate talent. You’ll have to prepare yourself for that,” Bai Li Hong warned Duan Ling Tian.
