Chapter 319: The Peak Master’s Summons
Translator: KurazyTolanzuraytor Editor: Jay
The surroundings went into an uproar as soon as Ye Xiao Bei finished speaking.
All the Megrez Peak disciples were completely stunned.
Although the prizes for the first place of the outer court martial competition isn’t bad, but besides the Profound Origin Fruit, it would at most be worth 10,000 gold….
Now, this Ye Xiao Bei actually wanted to spend 10 million gold to buy something worth 10,000 gold!
“Is this Ye Xiao Bei stupid?” This was the thought in the hearts of most of the Megrez Peak disciples that were present. After all, as far as they were concerned, unless one was stupid, otherwise it was impossible to do such an absurd thing.
Even if one had even more money, this wasn’t the way to use it!
Of course, they only dares think like this in their hearts, and no one dared say it out loud.
Some Megrez Peak disciples glanced at Ye Xiao Bei in admiration.
They were able to perceive that Ye Xiao Bei spending 10 million gold to buy Duan Ling Tian’s prizes was fake, and he wanting to be friends with Duan Ling Tian was the true thing…
With the natural talent in the Martial Dao that Duan Ling Tian revealed now, he would surely be an unsurpassed figure in the Azure Forest Imperial Kingdom once he matures in the future!
Once Duan Ling Tian stands at the peak of the Azure Forest Imperial Kingdom.
Not to mention 10 million gold!
Even if it was 100 million gold, Duan Ling Tian still might disregard it.
Making friends with Duan Ling Tian at this time was undoubtedly the wisest choice.
10 million gold was only a wager, a wager Ye Xiao Bei placed on Duan Ling Tian.
In the future, when Duan Ling Tian matured, they could imagine that with his status as a friend of Duan Ling Tian’s, there would probably be no one in the entire Azure Forest Imperial Kingdom that would dare offend him…
“These 10 million gold, you keep it.” Duan Ling Tian looked at Ye Xiao Bei and lightly smiled.
He was naturally able to guess Ye Xiao Bei’s intentions, and he couldn’t help but sigh with emotion towards Ye Xiao Bei’s boldness.
10 million gold!
After all, even all the wealth in his possession now, would only be 40 million gold in total….
More than half of it was contributed to him by the Jade Magnolia Trading Company’s Black Wind City’s branch president, Xia Guang, at that time in Black Wind City.
Ye Xiao Bei was stunned when he saw Duan Ling Tian refusing him, then he deeply glanced at Duan Ling Tian. “Senior Brother Duan Ling Tian isn’t an ordinary person as expected. You’re able to remain composed even when facing 10 million gold… But, this 10 million gold is a token of my regard to Senior Brother Duan Ling Tian. Just take it as a meeting gift, how about it? I hope Senior Brother Duan Ling Tian can accept it.”
In terms of age, Ye Xiao Bei was older than Duan Ling Tian by 1 or 2 years, but now when faced with Duan Ling Tian, he considered himself to be a junior brother.
Because he was clear in his heart that Duan Ling Tian had the qualification!
“Meeting gift?” Duan Ling Tian shook his head and smiled. “I can’t accept this meeting gift… If you have the intention, then spend 10,000 gold and buy those medicinal pills from the first place’s prize in the outer court martial competition. How about it?”
Ye Xiao Bei seemed to have realized Duan Ling Tian’s resolution, and nodded. “I’ll listen to Senior Brother Duan Ling Tian.”
In next to no time, Duan Ling Tian withdrew the medicinal pills he obtained from the prize for the first place in the outer court martial competition and passed it to Ye Xiao Bei, then put away a 10,000 denomination gold bill. He then smiled to Ye Xiao Bei and intended to leave. “Farewell.”
“Senior Brother Duan Ling Tian!” Suddenly, Ye Xiao Bei stopped Duan Ling Tian.
“Is there something else?” Duan Ling Tian turned around to look at Ye Xiao Bei with an uncertain expression.
“Senior Brother Duan Ling Tian, you can look for me, Ye Xiao Bei, if you need any help in the future… I can’t help you with anything great, but so long as it’s something that can be settled with money, then it isn’t a problem to me, Ye Xiao Bei!” Ye Xiao Bei looked at Duan Ling Tian and slowly said.
His speech was filled with confidence.
So long as it’s something that can be settled with money, then it isn’t a problem?
Needless to say, Ye Xiao Bei was extremely arrogant.
But the entire crowd of Megrez Peak disciples including Duan Ling Tian all knew that he had the qualifications to be arrogant.
Not only did this Ye Xiao Bei fling out 10 million gold onto the face of the Megrez Peak disciple that doubted him, he even threatened that if the Megrez Peak disciple wanted to see another 10 million gold, he could still take out another 10 million…
In other words, the wealth that Ye Xiao Bei brought around with him surpassed 20 million gold!
“Thank you.” Duan Ling Tian glanced deeply at Ye Xiao Bei, then turned and left.
Since Ye Xiao Bei had spoken like this, he accepted Ye Xiao Bei’s kindness.
Moreover, Ye Xiao Bei’s character really got along with his.
Meanwhile, Ye Xiao Bei put away the 10 million gold.
As for the Megrez Peak disciple that helped Ye Xiao Bei pick up the gold that lay scattered all over the ground, he now stood nearby, not even daring to breathe heavily, as he was deeply afraid that Ye Xiao Bei would make him pay for his actions after being done with Duan Ling Tian.
However, Ye Xiao Bei didn’t have the intention to look for trouble with the Megrez Peak disciple again, and only coldly swept the Megrez Peak disciple with his gaze. “Scram!”
The latter fled in panic when he heard this, not daring to stay for a single moment.
And it was also from this moment onwards that the crowd of Megrez Peak disciples found out that hidden within the Megrez Peak was a Megrez Peak disciple called Ye Xiao Bei who had an extraordinary background.
A few days later.
Duan Ling Tian’s mood had walked out from the gloominess from the two little pythons leaving.
“Little Black, Little White, you two have to work hard… Otherwise, perhaps I will surpass the two of you when we meet next.” Duan Ling Tian stood on the tilted tree and gazed at the direction the mysterious yellow clothed young girl, Han Xue Nai, took the two little pythons and left towards, and the corners of his mouth curled into a smile of anticipation.
He anticipated meeting to two little pythons once again!
At that time, they ought to have matured.
“With my current strength, I ought to be able to participate in the inner court test and become an inner court disciple.” Duan Ling Tian slightly pondered, then planned to go inquire about the next inner court test.
Unexpectedly, he had only just arrived at the Trade Hall when he saw an old man walking towards him…
This old man wasn’t inferior.
The Megrez Peak outer court elder, Lu Qiu.
“Duan Ling Tian.” Lu Qiu had a face full of smiles when he saw Duan Ling Tian once again.
He had heard of Duan Ling Tian killing Shi Hao in one go a few days ago and seizing the first place in the outer court martial competition while becoming the number one disciple in the outer court.
He still remembered, that when he had just heard of this news at that time, he was stupefied for quite a long time.
At that time, there was only one thought in his heart. ‘Unbelievable’.
An outer court disciples he had personally brought into Megrez Peak half a year ago, had become the number one disciple in the outer court after half a year…
In connection with this, he even obtained a reward the Megrez Peak’s Peak Master bestowed to him.
He was clear in his heart that all this was something that Duan Ling Tian gave him, so, when he faced Duan Ling Tian now, he completely treated Duan Ling Tian as an equal.
“Elder Lu Qiu.” Duan Ling Tian lightly smiled to Lu Qiu.
“Duan Ling Tian, I really never imagined that your strength was so formidable…” Lu Qiu couldn’t help but sigh with emotion, and he looked at Duan Ling Tian with a complicated gaze.
Then, Lu Qiu said. “I’ve waited for you for two days but didn’t see you appear, and I don’t know where your place of cultivation is… Looks like even your place of cultivation is concealed very deeply.” As he finished speaking, Lu Qiu glanced deeply at Duan Ling Tian.
Duan Ling Tian laughed and didn’t provide any further explanation, and asked curiously. “Elder Lu Qiu, you waited for me for two days? Do you have something you’re looking for me for?”
“It isn’t me who’s looking for you.” Lu Qiu shook his head.
“Then…” Duan Ling Tian had a wondering expression.
“It’s the Peak Master that wants to see you,” Lu Qiu didn’t beat around the bush and directly went straight to the point.
“Peak Master?” Duan Ling Tian’s brows slightly jerked. “Which Peak Master?”
Lu Qiu smiled. “Naturally it’s the Peak Master of our Megrez Peak… Are you free now? If you’re free, then I’ll take you the Megrez Hall in Dubhe Peak to see the Peak Master right now. Since the Peak Master knew that you killed Shi Hao to become the number one disciple in the outer court, and brought honor to Megrez Peak, the Peak Master wanted to meet you in person.”
Megrez Peak’s Master?
Duan Ling Tian nodded. “I don’t have anything to do. Since the Peak Master summons, then Elder Lu Qiu, please lead the way.”
Although he had been in the Megrez Peak for half a year, he hadn’t met the Peak Master of Megrez Peak.
He was rather curious towards that mysterious Peak Master of Megrez Peak.
“OK.” Lu Qiu nodded, then walked shoulder to shoulder with Duan Ling Tian to leave Megrez Peak, then stepped onto the chain bridge to head towards Dubhe Peak.
On the way, Duan Ling Tian saw a group of people gather together, and were walking towards Megrez Peak.
The person in the lead was an ‘old friend’ of Duan Ling Tian’s.
The Megrez Peak outer court elder, Zhao Lin!
At the moment that Duan Ling Tian noticed Zhao Lin, Zhao Lin noticed him as well.
Their gazes competed with each other without actual battle…
They were on par with each other!
Two Megrez Peak disciples followed behind Zhao Lin, and now that they saw Duan Ling Tian and Lu Qiu, they respectfully greeted. “Senior Brother Duan Ling Tian, Elder Lu Qiu.”
“Zhao Lin, these are the new outer court disciples this time?” Lu Qiu’s gaze descended onto the 20 young men that were behind Zhao Lin and the two other Megrez peak disciples.
These 20 young man were all in casual clothes, and were now looking around, filled with curiously towards everything before their eyes.
A wisp of a smile appeared on the corners of Duan Ling Tian’s mouth when he saw these 20 young men, as if he saw himself from half a year ago.
“Yes.” Zhao Lin nodded, then withdrew the chilly gaze he looked at Duan Ling Tian with before turning around to look at the group of hotheaded young men behind him. “This is Elder Lu Qiu, he’s an outer court elder of our Megrez Peak as well, are all of you still not saluting him?”
The 20 hothead young men that had just passed the Seven Star Sword Sect’s outer court test shuddered, then hurriedly saluted Lu Qiu. “Greetings Elder Lu Qiu.”
Lu Qiu lightly nodded, then introduced Duan Ling Tian who was beside him. “This is your Senior Brother Duan Ling Tian.”
“Senior Brother?” For a moment, the outer court disciples that had just entered the Seven Star Sword Sect all frowned as they looked at Duan Ling Tian.
“He’s only a little over 20 right? Senior Brother?”
“Hmph! He merely entered the sect earlier than us, his strength might not even be stronger than us, and he wants us to call him Senior Brother?”
“Exactly! This young kid, on what basis is he our Senior Brother?”
When faced with Duan Ling Tian now, the 20 hot headed young men all refused to give him a glance.
Lu Qiu frowned when he saw this, then looked at Zhao Lin, seeming to want Zhao Lin to teach a lesson to these kids that had an exaggerated opinion of their ability.
But, Zhao Lin only smiled lightly, and did nothing.
Ask him to help Duan Ling Tian?
Was that possible?
