Chapter 1544: A Meeting Gift
Translator: EndlessFantasy Translation Editor: EndlessFantasy Translation
During the journey back to the Moon Illumination Sect in the Dao Martial Saint Land, Duan Ling Tian’s mood turned worse and worse.
Currently, there was not a moment when he was not thinking about his two fiancées.
Ke’er was still okay since he was certain of her safety for the time being.
Although he suspected Li Fei and the three little fellows had gone to look for Han Xue Nai, danger lurked everywhere in the journey from Cloud Continent to the Dao Martial Saint Land. Would they arrive safely?
He was extremely worried about this.
Due to this reason, Duan Ling Tian did not have the mood to read the Sovereign Heart Sword in detail throughout his journey.
However, even if Duan Ling Tian did not read the Sovereign Heart Sword in detail, his Sword Dao was already at the first stage of the Sovereign Heart Sword.
His six-month meditation did not go to waste at all.
When he seemed to have entered a state of enlightenment and practiced his swordsmanship — from simple to complex and then complex to simple again — it was also one of the signs of entering the first stage of the Sovereign Heart Sword.
The first stage of the Sovereign Heart Sword was also called Heartfelt Sword.
Although it was only the first stage of the Sovereign Heart Sword, it had already surpassed the highest stage of the Aerolite Strike that Duan Ling Tian had cultivated in terms of strength… Naturally, this was under the condition the Aerolite Strike was cast without the help of the Saint Inscriptions.
In other words, the first stage of the Sovereign Heart Sword had already surpassed the highest stage offensive technique cultivated from a Human Rank top-grade Saint Grade Martial Tactic.
With Duan Ling Tian’s current strength, apart from not feeling fully confident in defeating some Imminent Saint Stage powerhouse, he was confident in defeating — and even killing — other Martial and Dao Cultivators below the Saint Stage.
With his strength now, it was safe for him to bring Feng Wu Dao and the others with him.
Soon after, he brought them to the monastery gate of Moon Illumination Sect’s estate.
Duan Ling Tian was already a famous person in the Moon Illumination Sect. Due to this reason, the moment the few outer court disciples who were guarding the monastery gate saw him, they called out, “Senior Brother Duan,” one after another and welcomed him inside politely.
They did not even check Feng Wu Dao and the others.
What a joke!
In addition to being famous among the younger generation in the Moon Illumination Sect, this Senior Brother Duan was even Elder Bai Li Hong’s junior brother. Who would dare to stop him from bringing people into the sect?
“Duan Ling Tian, those Moon Illumination Sect’s disciples seem to be very respectful toward you,” Chen Shao Shuai remarked, slightly surprised.
The others were just as surprised. Earlier, they could see the respect the few Moon Illumination Sect’s disciples had shown Duan Ling Tian was sincere. There was even a hint of idolatry in their eyes when they looked at him.
They were curious. How did Duan Ling Tian manage to achieve this in just three short years?
If they discovered Duan Ling Tian had only entered the Moon Illumination Sect less than a year ago, they would be stunned motionless.
“Senior Brother Duan!”
“Senior Brother Duan Ling Tian!”
“Senior Brother Ling Tian!”
As they continued on their way, Feng Wu Dao and the others began to get used to the polite greetings.
Duan Ling Tian led them past the outer court district. Almost all of the outer court disciples they encountered greeted and bowed at him.
Since Duan Ling Tian was not in the mood, he merely nodded indifferently in response to all the greetings.
Soon after, Duan Ling Tian led Feng Wu Dao and the others to the inner court district and to Bai Li Hong’s mansion.
Under Duan Ling Tian’s order, the people inside Bai Li Hong’s mansion brought Feng Wu Dao and the others to rest. As for Duan Ling Tian, he went to look for Bai Li Hong immediately.
“Junior Brother, why did you come back so fast?” Bai Li Hong was surprised when he saw Duan Ling Tian.
“Didn’t Junior Brother want to accompany the two sisters-in-law to give birth? Don’t tell me my two sisters-in-law have already given birth when you went back? Did two of them and my nephews follow you back?” Bai Li Hong asked eagerly.
“Senior Brother.” When Duan Ling Tian heard Bai Li Hong mentioning his two fiancées, the worries that finally lessened a little surged back into his heart as it clenched.
“I’m afraid I’ll have to disappoint you,” Duan Ling Tian answered Bai Li Hong as he took a deep breath.
Horror dawned on Bai Li Hong when he saw how gloomy Duan Ling Tian was, and he hastily asked, “What? Don’t tell me something has happened?”
When Duan Ling Tian saw how worried Bai Li Hong was, a sense of warmth enveloped his heart immediately. He began to recount everything that had transpired to Bai Li Hong.
“Dragon clan? Five-clawed Golden Dragon?” Bai Li Hong’s expression turned grave as well when learned about everything.
The knowledge he had on the dragon clan was only limited to the text passage he had read.
Although he had only read about it, he knew it was an extremely terrifying force. Not many sects in the Dao Martial Saint Land were willing to pick a fight with the dragon clan.
Bai Li Hong’s heart was also filled with a sense of helplessness when he found out about how powerful Di Jue was.
According to his junior brother’s description, that Di Jue’s strength was even more powerful than the few Saint Stage powerhouses in their Moon Illumination Sect.
Apart from that, Bai Li Hong had also learned about Chi Mei.
“Junior Brother, seeing that Chi Mei is sister-in-law’s twin sister, and how she’s so friendly to her, I’m sure she won’t harm sister-in-law at all… However, as for that Fire Worship Sect, I’ve lived for so long, but I’ve never heard of them before.” Bai Li Hong reassured Duan Ling Tian. However, when he reached the end of his sentence, he could not help but shake his head.
“As for the other sister-in-law, since she’s the person you love and is pregnant with your child, I’m sure she’s also a blessed person… You don’t have to worry too much about this, Junior Brother,” Bai Li Hong added again.
Seeing how colors had returned to Duan Ling Tian’s face after he had heard his words, Bai Li Hong seized the opportunity to strike while the iron was still hot and continued to persuade and reassure him.
One must admit Bai Li Hong was indeed an eloquent old fox. In the end, he really did manage to calm Duan Ling Tian down a lot.
“Senior Brother, I’ve brought some seniors and friends with me this time,” Duan Ling Tian also told Bai Li Hong about Feng Wu Dao and the others.
Bai Li Hong was also very direct. “Just let them stay at my place since I have nothing but empty rooms here. Junior Brother, they’re your seniors and friends, naturally, they’re also my friends.”
“Thank you, Senior Brother.” Duan Ling Tian quickly expressed his gratitude.
“Junior Brother, again?” Bai Li Hong said unhappily as he pulled a long face.
“Ah, I forgot, I forgot. I’ll be sure not to thank you again if I come to you for help next time.” Duan Ling Tian flashed an awkward smile.
“Let’s go! Bring me to see those seniors and friends of yours.” Bai Li Hong motioned. “It’s always a delight having friends visiting from afar. It’ll be impolite of me if I don’t greet them.”
Subsequently, the two of them went to see Feng Wu Dao and the others.
When Feng Wu Dao and the others saw Bai Li Hong, they were also struck dumb.
Although they had long heard from Duan Ling Tian that he had a senior brother in the Moon Illumination Sect, and his senior brother had quite a high position in the sect, they merely thought Duan Ling Tian’s senior brother was the son or a disciple of a Moon Illumination Sect’s high-level official. They did not expect him to be an old man with a head of white hair. Moreover, with just a look, they could tell this old man was not an ordinary person.
“Everyone, since you’re seniors and friends of my junior brother, it’s only natural that you’re all also friends of mine. All of you can just stay here from now on. I’ll help all of you get an Identity Order Token tomorrow. From tomorrow onward, all of you will become inner court disciples in the Moon Illumination Sect,” Bai Li Hong said to Feng Wu Dao and the others with a smile.
Inner court disciples?
Although they suspected Bai Li Hong was not a simple person, Feng Wu Dao and the others were still shocked when they heard his words.
During their journey here, they had also heard from Duan Ling Tian about the Moon Illumination Sect. They knew that inner court disciples of the Moon Illumination Sect were usually at the Saint Rudiment Stage and above.
Even the weakest person in the outer court was at the Mastery or Perfection Mortal Shedding Stage.
However, they had not even broken through to the Mortal Shedding Stage, but they were instantly promoted to inner court disciples as soon as they entered the sect?
“D-Don’t tell me this senior brother of Duan Ling Tian is actually the S-Sect Leader of Moon Illumination Sect?” Chen Shao Shuai asked using his Voice Transmission as he looked at Nangong Yi.
After hearing Chen Shao Shuai’s Voice Transmission, the stunned Nangong Yi regained his senses and replied, “Even if he’s not the Sect Leader of the Moon Illumination Sect, he must have a high position in the Moon Illumination Sect. Otherwise, how can he have this ability?”
Feng Wu Dao and the others were still stunned by Bai Li Hong’s words when he took out a bunch of sixth-grade Saint Stones. “Just take these sixth-grade Saint Stones as my meeting gift to all of you… On top of that, I’ll make a Crystal Card for all of you too. At that time, I’ll transfer some Merit Points to all of you so you can use it to exchange for Saint Grade Martial Tactics or Pills in the Merit Pavilion. As for Saint Weapons, I’ll personally make one for all of you,” Bai Li Hong said with a smile.
When Feng Wu Dao and the others heard this, they quickly expressed their gratitude.
Naturally, they did not understand the magnitude of Bai Li Hong’s gifts, particularly the last one. It was enough to elicit jealousy from more than half of the people in the Moon Illumination Sect.
The Saint Weapons that Bai Li Hong would personally make them would undoubtedly be inscribed with a Saint Inscription that was suitable for them.
Once they began to use this kind of Saint Weapons, their strengths would improve tremendously.
“Everyone, you must be tired from your long journey so I won’t disturb you from resting.” After bidding goodbye to Feng Wu Dao and the others, Bai Li Hong bade goodbye to Duan Ling Tian before he left.
After Bai Li Hong left, Feng Wu Dao and the others looked at Duan Ling Tian. Feng Wu Dao was the first one to speak. “Ling Tian boy, who is this senior brother of yours?”
“Duan Ling Tian, don’t tell me your senior brother is actually the Sect Leader of the Moon Illumination Sect?” Chen Shao Shuai asked as well.
“My senior brother is an inner court elder of the Moon Illumination Sect… However, due to various reasons, my senior brother’s position in the Moon Illumination Sect is special. Even the Sect Leader doesn’t dare to slack when he meets my senior brother,” Duan Ling Tian explained after he saw the shock and doubt on Feng Wu Dao and the others’ faces.
