“Ta Mu, do you believe me?” Su Li smiled lightly as he looked at Ta Mu and asked.
“I’ll believe you if Master does!” Ta Mu didn’t hesitate in the slightest to reply decisively.
“He’s really obedient… Duan Ling Tian, why don’t you take this disciple? I think he’s rather not bad.” Su Li looked at Duan Ling Tian and smiled.
“Thank you, Martial Uncle, for speaking for Ta Mu.” Ta Mu hurriedly bowed and thanked Su Li, and his words came from the heart and were exceedingly sincere.
“If you want to take him as a disciple, then go ahead! In any case, I have nothing to teach him, and I’m not interested in taking a disciple like this.” Duan Ling Tian spoke angrily after glaring at Su Li.
Su Li laughed bitterly and didn’t say anything further.
“Big Brother Zhang, Sister-in-law is still in the Darkhan Dynasty now… What’re you planning to do in the future? Will you bring her over or will you return yourself?” Duan Ling Tian asked Zhang Shou Yong, as Zhang Shou Yong wasn’t alone and still had a wife, Wang Qiong, who was in the Darkhan Dynasty’s Zhang Clan.
When he was in the Darkhan Dynasty, Zhang Shou Yong and Wang Qiong had never left each other’s side.
This time, when Zhang Shou Yong left the Darkhan Dynasty to come to the Foreign Lands to participate in the Martial Competition of the Ten Dynasties, he didn’t bring her over.
“After some time, make a trip with me to bring her over.” Zhang Shou Yong’s face was covered in warmth when Duan Ling Tian mentioned Wang Qiong, and he smiled lightly.
“Alright.” Duan Ling Tian smiled as he nodded. In his heart, his Big Brother Zhang had always been the same Big Brother Zhang from before, the Big Brother Zhang that had once saved his life and helped him on many occasions.
Perhaps his current strength had surpassed Zhang Shou Yong, yet so long as Zhang Shou Yong had any problems or needs, then he would absolutely not shirk away!
Even if he had to lay down his life!
“At that time, I’ll follow the both of you back as well,” said Feng Tian Wu.
“Haha… We of course have to bring you along.” Zhang Shou Yong laughed.
“If all of you want to return to the Darkhan Dynasty, I’ll send a few elders to go along with you… The Foreign Lands isn’t like your Darkhan Dynasty, and it’s filled with danger in every corner.” Sword 13 spoke with a light smile when he heard the conversation between Duan Ling Tian’s group of three.
“Thank you, Senior.” Duan Ling Tian hurriedly expressed his gratitude. He knew that this was a special preferential treatment Sword 13 gave to them, and it was a treatment that ordinary Blade Sect disciples were unable to enjoy.
“But if all of you really want to return, it will probably have to wait until a year from now.” Sword 13 added.
“Understood.” Duan Ling Tian nodded. He was mentally prepared for this since long ago, so he wasn’t surprised.
When they were still at the Skywolf Fort earlier, he’d vaguely guessed some things from Sword 13’s words, and it was related to the treasures left behind by a Martial Emperor Stage expert.
Moreover, that treasure vault had a special Inscription Formation established on it, causing it to only allow geniuses under the age of 40 to enter.
Besides that, there were numerous precious treasures within the treasure vault.
Obviously, if there were no precious treasures within it, then would it be able to make the Skywolf Fort, Blade Sect, Empyrean Temple, and Emotion Severing Sect exhaust all efforts for it?
Not to mention anything else, just the Concept Fragments the four powers had expended on the representatives and young geniuses of the ten Dynasties was already of great value.
As far as Duan Ling Tian was concerned, the four powers would absolutely not make a losing exchange.
They’d surely obtained specific information about the treasure vault left behind by the Martial Emperor Stage expert beforehand, and they knew that there was something they wanted within it.
Even though Duan Ling Tian wasn’t surprised, it didn’t represent that Feng Tian Wu, Su Li, and Zhang Shou Yong weren’t surprised.
After they perceived that Duan Ling Tian seemed to know some things, the three of them couldn’t help but ask curiously via voice transmission.
“Big Brother Duan, why do we have to wait a year before we can return?”
“Duan Ling Tian, when you said you understood earlier, you seem to know why we can only return after a year?”
“Brother Ling Tian, what exactly is going on?”
Duan Ling Tian didn’t conceal anything intentionally when facing their questions, and he spoke of his guesses to them.
All of this was his own guess.
From the beginning until the end, Sword 13 had never directly mentioned it to him.
“A treasure vault left behind by a Martial Emperor Stage expert?”
“Only a genius below the age of 40 was able to enter? There’re precious treasures that the four great powers want within it?”
“The Skywolf Fort held the Martial Competition of the Ten Dynasties for the sake of obtaining the treasures left behind by that Martial Emperor Stage expert?”
Feng Tian Wu, Su Li, and Zhang Shou Yong were shocked.
Never had they imagined that there were so many things concealed behind a mere Martial Competition of the Ten Dynasties.
Earlier, when the four powers paid such great prices for the sake of competing for the group of young geniuses, they felt rather puzzled.
Now they came to a sudden understanding.
It turned out that the four powers wanted to use the group of young geniuses to help them go to the treasure vault left behind by the Martial Emperor Stage expert and search for the treasures they wanted to obtain.
“Looks like there’ll be another round of open and covert competition once we enter the treasure vault left behind by the Martial Emperor Stage expert.” Su Li sighed via voice transmission.
Duan Ling Tian deeply agreed with this.
After all, there were four great powers that knew of the treasure vault left behind by the Martial Emperor Stage expert. At that time, they would surely send people in, so the people sent in would be unable to avoid competing for various treasures.
Moreover, it might not be only the four great powers that knew of the existence of the treasure vault left behind by the Martial Emperor Stage expert. Perhaps there were five powers, 10 powers, or even more powers.
For a time, Duan Ling Tian felt strands of heavy pressure.
The enormousness of the Foreign Lands was far from something the Darkhan Dynasty could compare to.
Not to mention those formidable second-rate powers, just in these third-rate sects like the Empyrean Temple and Emotion Severing Sect, Duan Ling Tian had seen two sixth level Void Interpretation Stage experts that were below the age of 40 today. The Empyrean Temple’s young monk and the Emotion Severing Sect’s Zhang Yan.
Duan Ling Tian believed that there were surely other outstanding young experts like this in the Skywolf Fort and Blade Sect.
Feng Tian Wu and Zhang Shou Yong were slightly dazed and hadn’t recovered from their shock yet.
A Martial Emperor Stage expert was an existence that stood at the peak of the Cloud Continent, and to them, it only existed in legends.
Exactly how precious would the treasures within a treasure vault left behind by a Martial Emperor Stage expert be?
It was difficult for them to imagine it.
“Hmm?” Sword 13 who led the way ahead and Saber 5 who followed in the rear seemed to have nothing something, and their brows suddenly knit together.
Subsequently, they seemed as if they’d discussed it earlier as they squinted their eyes and looked back in unison.
“Sh*t!” Sword 13’s face went grim.
Saber 5’s expression was extremely unsightly as well.
There were three figures flashing over swiftly from the distance, and they were like three bolts of black lightning that appeared in their field of vision in a short moment.
The speed of these three people was so swift that it caused Sword 13 and Saber 5 to be unable to arouse the thought of fleeing.
If it was only the two of them, then perhaps they would be able to flee easily. But the problem was that they weren’t alone, and they still had to take care of Duan Ling Tian and the group of young geniuses.
“It’s Ning Can!” In next to no time, Saber 5 shouted out coldly, and his expression was exceedingly gloomy.
Ning Can? What has he come for?
Saber 5’s cold shout caused Duan Ling Tian, the group of young geniuses and Feng Wu Dao to return to their sense, and they stopped moving in unison before looking at the three approaching figures.
One of them was Ning Can who they were familiar with, the Vice Fort Master of Skywolf Fort.
Besides Ning Can, there were another two old men.
One of the old men was actually slightly swifter than Ning Can, whereas, the other old man had a speed equal to Ning Can.
“Ning Can, Meng Li, Yu Kang!” Sword 13 flew out to greet the three people that were flashing over, and then he looked at them and said with a low voice, “All of you probably caught up not simply for the sake of sending us off, right?”
“Sword 13, so long as you hand over Duan Ling Tian, all of you can leave safely.” Ning Can went straight to the point and spoke of the reason for their arrival. They’d come for a single reason, to make Duan Ling Tian stay behind.
Duan Ling Tian’s expression went slightly grim as he never imagined that Ning Can’s group of three had pursued them for him.
Even though he’d never seen those two old men before, since they were able to come over with Ning Can, and based on the speed they revealed earlier, he was able to discern their strengths.
One of them was stronger than Ning Can, whereas, the other was on par with Ning Can.
Because of this, Duan Ling Tian was extremely easily able to guess the identities of the other two people, they ought to be Vice Fort Masters of Skywolf Fort.
The Skywolf Fort had a total of five Vice Fort Masters.
Ning Can and Feng Wei who heed seen presiding over the Martial Competition of the Ten Dynasties were only two of them.
“Ning Can, are you kidding?” Sword 13 hadn’t spoken when Saber 5 had already laughed coldly. “Duan Ling Tian is currently a member of our Blade Sect, and if you want to lay a hand on him, then you have the ask the saber in my hand first!”
As Saber 5 spoke, a heavy and broad saber had appeared in is hand, and it emitted a peerlessly fierce aura that contained strands of a sanguinary smell.
Obviously, many souls had perished under this saber, causing the saber to be tainted with a dense sanguinary aura.
“Sword 13, do you think the same as well?” The old man that obviously possessed a strength stronger than Ning Can took a step forward and stared at Sword 13 with a burning gaze as he asked with a low voice.
“Meng Li, what is the meaning of this? Do you think there’s no one capable in my Blade Sect?” Sword 13’s eyes flickered with cold lights as he emitted a piercingly cold sword intent from his body and surging out along with this was an icy cold and pone piercing killing intent that shot into the sky.
Meng Li was a Vice Fort Master of Skywolf Fort that had stepped into the ninth level of the Void Transformation Stage many years ago, and he was one of the strongest two beneath the Fort Master of Skywolf Fort.
The other person was a Vice Fort Master of Skywolf Fort as well, and he possessed a cultivation on par with Meng Li.
That person, Feng Wei, and the three people before him were the five great Vice Fort Masters of Skywolf Fort.
The last person that came with Meng Li and Ning Can was called Yu Tang, and he was also an existence at the eighth level of the Void Transformation Stage like Ning Can.
One ninth level Void Transformation Stage martial artist and two eighth level Void Transformation Stage martial artists.
The three of them had pursued them from the Skywolf Fort with malicious intent, and they’d come for the sake of Duan Ling Tian!
“Duan Ling Tian, these three old fellows have actually chased after us like flies for the sake of you… Could it be that you dug out the graves of their ancestors?” Su Li asked with slight shock as he looked at Ning Can’s group of three.
“It would be fine if I did dig out their ancestor’s graves. At least I would know why they’re looking for me… But the problem is I utterly don’t know why they have set their sights on me now.” Duan Ling Tian frowned.
