Chapter 654: Resounding Slap

“Perhaps.” Duan Ling Tian glanced at Feng Tian Wu who was behind him when he heard this, and then he smiled lightly.
Actually, early on when Feng Tian Wu had just made an appearance, his Spiritual Force had already stretched out to detect Feng Tian Wu’s cultivation.
Seventh level of the Void Initiation Stage!
Feng Tian Wu’s cultivation caused Duan Ling Tian to be shocked.
But when he thought of Feng Tian Wu’s Fire Spirit Body, Duan Ling Tian came to an understanding.
As an innate Spirit Body, its speed of cultivation was normally extremely quick, and it was especially so for the comprehension of Force and Concept; it was swift to an absurd degree.
For example, as a possessor of the Fire Spirit Body, the speed of Feng Tian Wu’s comprehension in Fire Force and Fire Concept was something that ordinary people were utterly unable to imagine.
“Perhaps, the speed Tian Wu comprehended Fire Concept is even not inferior to the comprehension speed of a martial artist that possesses an extremely high comprehension ability and a Fire Concept Fragment.” Duan Ling Tian thought to himself.
But Duan Ling Tian’s Spiritual Force was able to detect Feng Tian Wu’s current cultivation, yet was unable to find out the level of her comprehension in Fire Concept.
“Father, what are you saying? Big Brother Ling Tian is surely stronger than me.” When she saw Duan Ling Tian look over, Feng Tian Wu’s beautiful face that has just eased up flushed red once again, and she spoke to Feng Wu Dao at the same time.
Her words were filled with confidence towards Duan Ling Tian.
Feng Wu Dao couldn’t help but laugh bitterly when he saw his daughter being so protective over Duan Ling Tian.
“Ling Tian, have you awakened to an innate Spirit Body now?” Feng Wu Dao looked at Duan Ling Tian and asked via voice transmission, and his tone contained traces of seriousness.
“No.” Duan Ling Tian shook his head and replied via voice transmission. “Uncle Feng, I think that prediction might be…”
“No!” Duan Ling Tian hadn’t finished speaking when Feng Wu Dao interrupted him with a voice transmission, and his tone was resolute and decisive.
Duan Ling Tian laughed bitterly and was at a loss for words.
“Just wait… You’ll only be 30 in another 2 or 3 years. Perhaps you’ll awaken to a Water Spirit Body or Ice Spirit Body in the next three years?” Feng Wu Dao said via voice transmission.
“If I’m unable to awaken to an innate Spirit Body at the age of 30… Then would Uncle Feng be able to confirm that the prediction was inaccurate?” Duan Ling Tian asked.
“Even if you’re unable to awaken to an innate Spirit Body at the age of 30… So long as Wu is unable to encounter a possessor of a Water Spirit Body or Ice Spirit Body by the age of 29, then I hope that you can get married and become one with her.” As he finished speaking via voice transmission, Feng Wu Dao’s tone was filled with seriousness.
Obviously, if it was really like that, then although he would still believe the prediction, but his resolution would still be slightly swayed.
If it really came to that moment, he would rather resort to desperate means than be willing to allow his daughter to face the danger of exploding from the pent up energy of her Fire Spirit Body.
Duan Ling Tian was instantly speechless when he heard this.
But he knew as well that he’d already become the only person that was able to save Feng Tian Wu in the eyes of Feng Wu Dao.
“That prediction…” Now, Duan Ling Tian was truly slightly speechless as he didn’t know why the prediction just had to choose him.
Although he possessed for fortuitous encounters that far surpassed ordinary people and had even fused with the memories of the Rebirth Martial Emperor, but he really didn’t feel that he was able to save Feng Tian Wu.
The Fire Spirit Body was too troublesome.
This was something that he’d found out from the memories of the Rebirth Martial Emperor long ago.
But Duan Ling Tian also knew that since Feng Wu Dao had already decided, then saying anything more would be of no use.
“I only hope that it won’t really come to that situation… If it really came to that situation, then I can only try and see whether I’m able to help Tian Wu get through this calamity.” Duan Ling Tian thought to himself.
“If I’m unable to help Tian Wu, then I’ll try my best so that I have no regrets.”
“If I’m able to save Tian Wu, then I’ll surely carry out the responsibilities of a man and be responsible for Tian Wu.” Duan Ling Tian quickly had a decision in his heart.
“Uncle Feng, I heard you intend to make Tian Wu appear in public?” Duan Ling Tian recalled when Grandma Xu said that day and couldn’t refrain from asking.
“Yes.” Feng Wu Dao nodded, and he glanced at Feng Tian Wu with a doting gaze. “During all these years, Tian Wu has always silently followed by my side and no one knew of her existence… This time, I want to make everyone know that the Feng Clan has this little princess.” Feng Wu Dao’s tone obviously contained slight guilt.
Duan Ling Tian, who knew the reason for everything, naturally knew why Feng Wu Dao would feel guilty, yet Tian Wu didn’t.
“Father, so long as I’m by your side, I don’t care if others know I’m your daughter or not.” Feng Tian Wu walked to stand by Feng Wu Dao’s side and held his hand as she spoke with a gentle voice.
Suddenly, a voice transmission sounded out by Duan Ling Tian’s ears. “Duan Ling Tian, I want to have a chat with Lord Wu Dao.”
Duan Ling Tian nodded to King Yong, and then he looked at Feng Tian Wu and said, “Tian Wu, bring me around your Feng Clan Estate.”
Feng Tian Wu nodded with slight embarrassment when she heard this. “Alright.”
“Uncle Feng, I hope that you and Elder Kong can properly entertain King Yong for a while… During the journey here, King Yong has taken quite good care of me.” Before Duan Ling Tian brought Feng Tian Wu along and left, he spoke to Feng Wu Dao and Elder Kong.
When the two of them heard this, they glanced at each other before shaking their heads and smiling.
The two of them had lived for more than half their lifetimes, so they were naturally able to discern the deep meaning within Duan Ling Tian’s words, and it was undoubtedly words that hoped they would entertain King Yong properly.
“During all these years, there was practically no companion of the same age by Tian Wu’s side… You help me take good care of Tian Wu.” Feng Wu Dao glanced deeply at Duan Ling Tian and replied.
“Of course.” Duan Ling Tian nodded earnestly.
Subsequently, Duan Ling Tian left the Audience Hall with Feng Tian Wu, and then they left the vast estate.
After walking out of the estate, Duan Ling Tian recalled something and looked at Feng Tian Wu as he asked with slight hesitance. “Tian Wu, I heard you haven’t come into contact with the other people of the Feng Clan since you were young… Are you familiar with the Feng Clan Estate?”
“Big Brother Duan, don’t worry.” Feng Tian Wu said with a smile, “Although I didn’t come into contact much with the other people of the Feng Clan, but I frequently wander about the Feng Clan Estate.”
Duan Ling Tian came to an understanding.
Yet Duan Ling Tian didn’t know that although the other people of the Feng Clan didn’t know of Feng Tian Wu’s identity, they knew that a person called Feng Tian Wu existed in the Feng Clan.
Of course, in their eyes, Feng Tian Wu was only the granddaughter of Grandma Xu.
They’d never connected the Eldest Master Feng Wu Dao with Feng Tian Wu.
Under Feng Tian Wu’s lead, Duan Ling Tian started to leisurely go around the Feng Clan Estate.
Needless to say, the Feng Clan Estate was exceedingly large, and the two of them had gone around for a long time before finally wander through a small corner of it.
“Big Brother Duan, I loved to be here the most when I was young… Every time Grandma Xu brought up a bucket of water, I would splash it all over her.” Unknowingly, Duan Ling Tian and Feng Tian Wu arrived before a well, and Feng Tian Wu smiled as she spoke.
Presently, Feng Tian Wu seemed like a child that hadn’t grown up, simple and innocent.
Duan Ling Tian’s gaze was complicated as he looked at Feng Tian Wu, and he sighed in his heart. “Why are the heavens so unfair to such a good girl? Not only is her life full of misfortunes, she was even given the Fire Spirit Body.”
All along the way, Duan Ling Tian followed behind Feng Tian Wu, and they unknowingly arrived near the center area of the Feng Clan Estate.
“Big Brother Duan, past the pathway before us is the Martial Practice Field of the Feng Clan.” Feng Tian pointed towards the distance as she spoke.
Duan Ling Tian nodded and headed towards the Martial Practice Field with Feng Tian Wu.
The Feng Clan’s Martial Practice Field was extremely vast, and it caused Duan Ling Tian to be unable to refrain from being astonished.
“What a large Martial Practice Field!” Duan Ling Tian couldn’t help but exclaim with admiration.
This Feng Clan Estate’s Martial Practice Field was absolutely the largest he’d ever seen.
Presently, the Martial Practice Field was bustling with noise and people moved up and down atop it, and there were even many people sparring that drew the spectating of many people.
“Feng Hao, she’s from your Feng Clan? Her appearance isn’t bad.” Suddenly, a frivolous voice sounded out by Duan Ling Tian’s ears, and the voice came from behind him. Obviously, it was the person behind him that said it.
“Kind of.” In next to no time, another voice sounded out. “She seems to be the granddaughter of the servant girl that was by the side of our previous Patriarch’s wife… But she’s extremely cold. I once struck up a conversation with her in the past, but she never paid any attention.”
Now, Duan Ling Tian was finally able to confirm.
These two voices of discussion turned out to be precisely discussing Feng Tian Wu, who was beside him.
Meanwhile, Duan Ling Tian couldn’t help but glance at Feng Tian Wu, whereas, Feng Tian Wu had a calm expression as if she utterly didn’t hear the discussion between those two people.
But when Feng Tian Wu noticed Duan Ling Tian look over, she lightly shook her head instead and said via voice transmission, “Big Brother Duan, they’re just silly people, there’s no need to pay attention to them.”
“Okay.” Duan Ling Tian lightly smiled as he nodded.
But in next to no time, the smile on Duan Ling Tian’s face froze.
“The granddaughter of the servant girl by the side of the previous Patriarch’s wife? So in other words, she’s only a lowly servant?” The person that spoke the first earlier had spoken out once more.
Meanwhile, Duan Ling Tian was able to perceive that Feng Tian Wu’s delicate body lightly trembled, and her pair of beautiful watery eyes even revealed rage.
Right at this moment, Duan Ling Tian moved.
Duan Ling Tian’s movement was too swift like a bolt of lightning, and he flashed behind in the blink of an eye.
A resounded slap sounded out.
Meanwhile, Duan Ling Tian’s figure stopped.
Presently, Duan Ling Tian glared coldly at the young man in luxurious clothes before him that let out a shrill cry and groaned while holding his face, and Duan Ling Tian said in a low voice. “Watch your mouth!” Duan Ling Tian’s words were filled with coldness.
“Big Brother Duan.” Meanwhile, Feng Tian Wu stood by Duan Ling Tian’s side as well, and her beautiful flushed red and contained a slight happy smile mixed within.
“Ke… Kid… You dare hit me? Do you know who I am?!” The young man in luxurious clothes rubbed the swollen half of his face as he spoke coldly with an unclear voice, and his voice was filled with coldness.
Meanwhile, the other young man who stood by the side of the young man in luxurious clothes stared at Duan Ling Tian as he shouted. “Kid, who’re you? You actually dare trespass into our Feng Clan!”
Duan Ling Tian paid no attention to the latter and directly looked at the young man in luxurious clothes, and the corners of his mouth curled into a wisp of a cold smile. “Now that you say this, I truly am slightly curious… Who are you?”
