“How many of people from your Azure Forest Tri-Sect have come for the sake of getting rid of me?” Duan Ling Tian’s voice slowly sounded out, and it was exceedingly empty without the slightest emotion.
Coldness appeared at the corners of Duan Ling Tian’s mouth when he saw the middle aged man keeping his mouth shut, and he threatened. “If you don’t cooperate, then I’ll kill you right now…”
“You won’t kill me if I cooperate?” The middle aged man imperceptibly shook as he took a deep breath and asked in a low voice.
“I won’t kill you if you cooperate.” Duan Ling Tian nodded.
The middle aged man heaved a sigh of relief when he obtained Duan Ling Tian’s agreement. “I came with two Guardian Elders… Normally, the two Guardian Elders would wait for news at the inn and I would come out to look out for your whereabouts.”
“The two Guardian Elders have given orders to notify them at the first possible moment once I notice you leaving the Dragon and Phoenix Academy.” The middle aged man continued.
“So in other words, the Guardian Elders of the Azure Forest Tri-Sect don’t dare to forcefully trespass into the Dragon and Phoenix Academy?” The corners of Duan Ling Tian’s mouth curled into a cold smile.
The middle aged man went silent.
The Dragon and Phoenix Academy was an academy established by the Azure Forest Imperial Kingdom’s Imperial Family, and was protected by the Imperial Family.
Although their Azure Forest Tri-Sect was extremely influential in the Azure Forest Imperial Kingdom, it wasn’t to the extent of being able to go against the Imperial Family, so they naturally didn’t dare offend the Imperial Family.
“Who are the two Guardian Elders that have come from your sect?” Duan Ling Tian asked.
Actually, Duan Ling Tian already had a guess in his heart, and he just wanted to confirm it a step further.
“It’s Elder Huo and Elder Ming,” The middle aged man hurriedly said.
“Speak their names!” Duan Ling Tian’s gaze went cold, and at this instant, the temperature of the surrounding air seemed to go down slightly.
The middle aged man’s figure shook as he added. “It’s Elder Tang Huo and Elder Zhao Ming.”
“It really is them!” The corners of Duan Ling Tian’s mouth curled into a smile of ridicule, then he glanced at the middle aged man indifferently. “After the Azure Forest Tri-Sect obtained the news of my appearance this time, it ought to be Tang Huo and Zhao Ming who took the initiative to request for the assignment to kill me, right?”
“Yes.” The middle aged man nodded.
Although he was curious why Duan Ling Tian would know this, he didn’t dare ask.
“Zhong Lin didn’t come?” Duan Ling Tian asked again.
Tang Huo and Zhao Ming’s appearance was within his expectations, as the two of them were presumably unable to forget the 10,000 Year Stalactite Milk.
But, Zhong Lin not coming had exceeded his expectations.
He still remember that when he mentioned the 10,000 Year Stalactite Milk that day, that Azure Forest Tri-Sect elder, Zhong Ling, was present as well.
Logically speaking, Zhong Lin probably wouldn’t miss a good opportunity to capture him.
“Elder Zhong Lin died one year ago,” said the middle aged man.
“Dead?” Duan Ling Tian was stunned.
“How did he die?” Duan Ling Tian was slightly curious.
That Zhong Lin was a sixth level Void Initiation Stage expert, after all, and people who could kill him in the Azure Forest Imperial Kingdom could be counted on one’s fingers.
“I heard he was killed in the Crimson Sky Kingdom… Even I’m not too clear about the specifics.” The middle aged man continued.
Crimson Sky Kingdom?
Duan Ling Tian’s brows raised, and he thought of the mysterious expert from that day at the first possible moment.
That mysterious expert hadn’t shown himself, yet deterred the three Guardian Elders of the Azure Forest Tri-Sect to flee merely by relying on his matchlessly formidable imposing manner…
“Could it be that Senior did it?” Duan Ling Tian guessed in his heart.
“Which inn are that Tang Huo and Zhao Ming staying in?” Duan Ling Tian looked at the little gold mouse after he obtained the last piece of information he wanted to know from the middle aged man.
“Little Gold, I’ll leave it to you!” Duan Ling Tian’s voice abruptly went cold.
“Squeak squeak~” The little gold mouse cried out excitedly, and her jade green eyes locked tightly onto the middle aged man.
“You… You deceived me! You said you wouldn’t kill me!” Coldness emerged from the middle aged man’s heart when he was locked on by the little gold mouse, his body shivered as he pointed at Duan Ling Tian in panic.
“I only said that I wouldn’t kill you… I didn’t say I wouldn’t let her kill you.” Duan Ling Tian’s tone was calm and didn’t carry any emotion within it.
The middle aged man revealed an expression of despair, and his figure flashed out, intending to flee.
But he didn’t even have the time to move before a tiny sword light that was swift as a bolt of lightning had already slashed past the sky to swipe past his throat.
“Squeak squeak~” When she saw the middle aged man die and his corpse crashing to the ground, the little gold mouse swung her pocket-size spirit sword about and was extremely happy.
With a raise of his hand, a strand of blue flames leaped up on Duan Ling Tian’s palm.
Subsequently, the flames descended onto the middle aged man’s corpse.
The middle aged man’s corpse didn’t even land on the ground when it had already transformed into ash that covered the sky and dispersed with the wind.
Grade four Weapon Flame was exceedingly overbearing.
“Little Gold, let’s go… We’re going to the Weapons Craftsmen Guild.” He called out to the little gold mouse.
After he asked for directions from someone, Duan Ling Tian quickly found the Weapons Craftsmen Guild.
This Weapons Craftsmen Guild was also the Azure Forest Imperial Kingdom’s Weapons Craftsmen Guild’s Main Guild.
As the main guild of the Azure Forest Imperial Kingdom’s Weapons Craftsmen Guild, it was extremely bustling, with streams of people moving in and out endlessly.
Duan Ling Tian noticed many weapons craftsmen.
Based on the crest that they wore on their chests, they were mostly grade eight and grade nine weapons craftsmen, and he could occasionally see one or two grade seven weapons craftsmen.
As for a grade six weapons craftsmen, Duan Ling Tian instead didn’t see a single one.
“A grade six weapons craftsman is considered to be an extremely rare existence in the Azure Forest Imperial Kingdom… After all, because there are no grade five weapons craftsmen in the Azure Forest Imperial Kingdom, grade six weapons craftsmen can reign supreme.” Duan Ling Tian quickly came to an understanding.
The Weapons Craftsmen Guild’s hall was extremely spacious.
When Duan Ling Tian entered, he noticed that the various counters in the hall were almost filled with people.
A portion of these people were weapons craftsmen that had come to accept assignments or buy materials, and another portion were ordinary martial artists that had come to put up assignments.
The clamorous atmosphere in the hall caused Duan Ling Tian to be slightly unaccustomed to it.
In next to no time, Duan Ling Tian arrived before the counter that had just become empty, and he went straight to the point. “I want to see your Guild Master!”
The worker behind the counter was a beautiful woman in pretty attire, and she was stunned when she heard Duan Ling Tian, then she said, “Little Brother, our Guild Master is extremely busy, and he isn’t someone you can meet on a whim. Normally, even I…”
The beautiful woman hadn’t finished speaking when she stopped abruptly.
Her pair of watery eyes sprang wide open at this moment.
Her proud and delicate body lightly trembled and was filled with charm, and it caused one to have the desire of pouncing over before pressing her onto the floor and ravaging her.
All of this came from Duan Ling Tian’s actions.
With a raise of his hand and with an angle that only the beautiful woman was able to see, a strand of raging and explosively rising flames burn on Duan Ling Tian’s palm…
If it was an ordinary Weapon Flame, the beautiful woman would naturally not react like this.
The problem was the Weapon Flame on Duan Ling Tian’s hand was blue in color.
“Four… Grade four Weapon Flame?” The beautiful woman fiercely gulped down a mouthful of saliva and her light voice trembled intensely.
As a worker of the Weapons Craftsmen Guild, she was extremely clear of what a grade four Weapon Flame meant.
Even she had only heard of a grade four Weapon Flame, but had never seen one.
The beautiful woman only recovered from her shock after Duan Ling Tian put out the grade four Weapon Flame on his hand, and when she looked at Duan Ling Tian once more, her gaze was completely different.
She didn’t dare look down on Duan Ling Tian because of his age anymore.
She knew that this was a respected grade four Weapons Craftsman!
“Do I have the qualifications to see your Guild Master now?” Duan Ling Tian asked.
“Respected Lord grade four… Guest, please follow me.” The beautiful woman intended to address Duan Ling Tian as Lord grade four Weapons Craftsman, but when she saw the fierce gaze that Duan Ling Tian shot at her, she instantly changed it.
She was able to discern that this grade four Weapons Craftsman didn’t want others to know his identity.
The Weapons Craftsmen Guilds hall was extremely large, and the departure of Duan Ling Tian and the beautiful woman didn’t attract the attention of others.
Duan Ling Tian followed behind the beautiful woman to walk into the inner hall behind the hall.
There was a staircase that led upstairs within the inner hall.
The beautiful woman led the way at the front, and Duan Ling Tian followed behind.
All along the way, the shock in the beautiful woman’s eyes was difficult to be restrained…
A grade four Weapons Craftsman was sufficient to make her shocked.
But now, what truly made her shocked was the age of the young man that followed behind her.
The young man looked to be not over 25.
Even if he took good care of his appearance, he wouldn’t be more than 30 years old.
Such a young grade four Weapons Craftsman had completely overturned her past knowledge.
“Not to mention the Dao of weapons refinement is more difficult as it advances… Condensing a grade four Weapon Flame requires a cultivation at least at the first level of the Void Prying Stage! Since this young man is able to condense a grade four Weapon Flame, I presume his cultivation has already stepped into the Void Prying Stage.”
The beautiful woman was able to feel that her heartbeat was speeding up.
“Young geniuses in our Azure Forest Imperial Kingdom that are below 30 years old and have stepped into the Void Prying Stage can be counted on one’s fingers… Let alone a person who also has such attainments in the Dao of weapons refinement!” The beautiful woman took a deep breath and guessed the identity of the young man behind her in her heart. “Could it be that he’s from the Darkhan Dynasty? Or perhaps… He’s from the Foreign Lands?”
While the beautiful woman made a variety of guesses, they’d finally arrived at their destination.
Duan Ling Tian followed behind the beautiful woman and had arrived at the third floor.
“Guild Master.” The beautiful woman stood at the stairway on the third floor and respectfully bowed.
There was a door there that was covered by a curtain.
“Come in.” An aged voice sounded out from behind the curtain.
“Guest, please.” The beautiful woman took a stride forward and pulled open the curtain, then she gestured Duan Ling Tian in.
The instant that Duan Ling Tian strode in, he noticed a formidable Spiritual Force instantly sweep out to lock onto him.
At this instant, he even had the feeling of being stripped naked.
This Spiritual Force seemed as if it could see through everything.
“What a formidable Spiritual Force… It isn’t much inferior to Elder Kong.” Duan Ling Tian’s heart shook.
Elder Kong was precisely that old man that Duan Ling Tian had become acquainted with in the City Governor’s Estate of the Darkstone Empire’s Phoenix Nest City, and he was an Inscription Master!
An Inscription Master whose art of inscriptions could be said to be at the top in the entire Darkhan Dynasty.
