Chapter 842: Overestimation of Ability!
Translator: KurazyTolanzuraytor Editor: JayC
“The Devilseal Tablet is too terrifying… If it’s possible, then I must try my best to not to utilize the energy contained within it in the future.” Duan Ling Tian decided in his heart.
After returning to his senses, Duan Ling Tian couldn’t help but laugh lightly when he recalled what Ye Xuan’s Second Uncle, Ye Hui, muttered earlier.
Subsequently, Duan Ling Tian looked at Ye Xuan who was angered to the point of seeming like a little tiger and intended to launch a verbal attack at Ye Hui. “Little Xuan, if someone intends to take the happiness of their loved ones as a trifling matter for the sake of their own personal benefit, then do you think that person is worse than an animal!?”
“Of course!” The beautiful face of Ye Xuan who originally wanted to flare up when she heard Ye Hui’s words was instantly suffused with a smile when she heard Duan Ling Tian.
At the same time, she mischievously gave Duan Ling Tian a thumbs up in secret.
“Enough!” Finally, Ye Ting couldn’t look on any longer. “Stop, all of you!”
“You’re the young man Little Xuan rescued, right?” Ye Ting looked at Duan Ling Tian and asked indifferently.
“Yes.” Duan Ling Tian nodded.
“You’re fine now, right?” Ye Ting asked.
“Yes.” Duan Ling Tian answered once more.
“Since you’re fine, then take these 10 low grade Origin Stones and go back to wherever you came from!” Ye Ting spoke indifferently. At the same time, he raised his hand to casually toss out 10 low grade Origin Stones directly beneath Duan Ling Tian’s feet.
Duan Ling Tian’s eyes narrowed.
This seemed to be an act of humiliating him and trampling on his dignity, right?
“Father, what’s the meaning of this?!” Ye Xuan’s beautiful face went grim when she saw this scene, and then she said angrily, “Big Brother Duan is my friend, and humiliating him is humiliating me… Quickly apologize to him!”
Ye Ting’s face sank and was extremely unsightly when he saw his daughter standing up for an outsider.
Asking him to apologize?
Was that possible?
“Pfft!” Ye Hui laughed with ridicule, and then he glanced coldly and indifferently at Duan Ling Tian and said, “Big Brother, I think this kid thinks it’s too little…”
“10 low grade Origin Stones isn’t little.” Ye Ting was indifferent and said, “Our Ye Clan doesn’t owe him anything… It’s he who owes our Ye Clan.”
“Patriarch Ye, what you said is wrong.” Duan Ling Tian’s eyes narrowed as he said indifferently, “Even if I owe someone something, I owe Little Xuan. What does it have to do with your Ye Clan?”
“Little Xuan is a member of our Ye Clan. Since you owe Little Xuan, you naturally owe our Ye Clan!” Ye Ting glanced at Duan Ling Tian with contempt as he laughed coldly.
“HAHAHAHA…” Duan Ling Tian instantly started laughing loudly when he heard this, and his laughter was unbridled and unrestrained as it filled the entire Ye Clan Audience Hall.
“What’re you laughing at?!” Ye Ting said with a low voice, “Could it be that I’m wrong?”
“Patriarch Ye, you still know that Little Xuan is a member of your Ye Clan? You didn’t discuss her marriage with her before privately agreeing to it with another… Do you think you took Little Xuan to be a member of the Ye Clan in this matter?” After he restrained his laughter, Duan Ling Tian sneered. “Perhaps, in your eyes, Little Xuan is only a tool in this matter, a tool for your Ye Clan to become united to the Chen Clan in marriage!”
As soon as Duan Ling Tian said this, Ye Ting’s expression became extremely unsightly.
Ye Xuan who stood behind Duan Ling Tian was agitated to the point her delicate fists were clenched tightly as Duan Ling Tian’s words had spoken out the words in her heart, and it resonated with her.
“Hmph! Kid, it isn’t you place to interfere in the things of our Ye Clan!” Ye Hui stood up from his seat as he glared angrily at Duan Ling Tian and shouted in a grim voice.
“What? You just said that I owe your Ye Clan a favor, yet now you’re busy drawing a line between us?” Duan Ling Tian smiled extremely brightly and brilliantly.
Ye Ting stood up from his seat as the Origin Energy on his body flickered like flames, and he shouted out coldly as his gaze that was like a blade shot towards Duan Ling Tian. “Our Ye Clan doesn’t welcome you… F*ck off!”
“Father, what’re you doing? Big Brother Duan is my friend. If you want to him to leave, the I’ll leave with him. Let me see how you explain this to the Chen Clan!” Ye Xuan strode a step forward, and she who wasn’t tall nor big stood before Duan Ling Tian and opened up her hands to protect Duan Ling Tian behind her as she was deeply afraid that Ye Ting would attack Duan Ling Tian.
“You… Little Xuan, get out of the way!” Ye Ting’s expression was even more unsightly when he saw his daughter standing at the side of an outsider.
Even though Ye Xuan wasn’t old, her character was extremely unyielding, and she disregarded Ye Ting.
“If you don’t move away, then I won’t consider you my daughter any longer!” Under his extremely rage, Ye Ting roared with a deep voice.
Ye Xuan’s expression instantly went pale as a sheet when she heard this, and she seemed to be slightly dejected as she muttered. “Changed, everything has changed… That Father that doted upon me in the past will never return. That Father that promised mother before her death that he would surely let me live happily forever is gone. That Father that would never shout at me is gone.”
Duan Ling Tian sighed.
Every family has its own problems, this was a fact.
At this moment, he could feel Ye Xuan’s dejectedness, yet he didn’t know how he should console her.
But in his heart, he’d already made a decision.
He would surely help this kind hearted young woman get through this predicament!
“Little Xuan.” Ye Ting sighed when he heard Ye Xuan’s mutters. “Actually, that Chen Clan’s Young Master isn’t bad… Even though he’s usually a bit too profligate and undisciplined, his father has already said that he only wanted to enjoy a little amusement occasionally, and he will be sincerely good to you.”
“Father, let me just ask you, do you believe his nonsense?” Ye Xuan sneered. “So long as someone in our Driftcloud Town has a daughter that’s pretty, which of those people haven’t had their daughters ruined by him? If there aren’t 100, there are at least 80 young women that have chosen to commit suicide after being violated by him, right?”
“You want me to marry a profligate good for nothing like him? Father, you want to push me into a fiery pit of hell just for the sake of the assistance the Chen Clan would be able to give the Ye Clan after the marriage?”
Ye Xuan’s successive rhetorical questions caused Ye Ting to be speechless and not know how to answer her.
“Little Xuan, you have to be sensible! You’re a member of the Ye Clan, so you naturally must think for the Ye Clan… Sacrificing you will allow our Ye Clan to move a step higher, and our Ye Clan will never forget you!” The nearby Ye Hui chipped in.
“No matter how high it stands, a clan that relied on sacrificing women to rise will be unable to change the inferiority in its bones! And it will fall down once again, sooner or later.” Duan Ling Tian spoke with disdain. In his lifetime, what he looked down upon the most was these people and powers that relied on women to seek benefit for themselves.
“Kid, you’re courting death!” Ye Hui was greatly enraged and couldn’t restrain himself any longer, and he seemed to have transformed into a ferocious fierce beast and directly pounced towards Duan Ling Tian.
He slapped out with his palm, causing Origin Energy to skyrocket before fusing with material Water Concept, and it flashed directly towards Duan Ling Tian’s chest.
A gale swept out from the palm causing the airflow in the sky to flash about along with it and transform into circle after circle of ripples that spread ceaselessly towards the surroundings.
“Big Brother Duan, watch out!” Ye Xuan, who was immersed in her pain, inadvertently saw this scene, causing her face to go grim, and her eyes were filled with extreme rage towards her second uncle, Ye Hui!
Ye Ting had the ability to stop Ye Hui yet didn’t make any move and watched everything coldly from the sidelines.
But in the next moment, he was unable to keep his composure any longer, and his pupils constricted instantly.
An enormous sound resounded out. Duan Ling Tian had casually pushed out with his palm to forcefully receive Ye Hui’s strike, yet Duan Ling Tian’s expression remained unchanged, whereas Ye Hui’s expression instantly flushed red.
“You overestimate your ability! There’s not enmity between us, yet you want to kill me just because I spoke a few words I felt to be correct?” Duan Ling Tian’s cold and indifferent gaze met Ye Hui’s gaze, and he asked with a low voice.
Ye Hui’s mouth held a mouthful of blood, and he didn’t spit it out because he was unwilling to show weakness before Duan Ling Tian, so it was naturally impossible for him to reply.
“What’s the point for a person like you to keep his cultivation?” Duan Ling Tian’s voice became slightly chilly.
“Stay your hand!” When he heard Duan Ling Tian’s words, Ye Ting who felt something was amiss realized what Duan Ling Tian wanted to do, and his face went grim.
Without the slightest hesitation, Ye Ting flew out like a ferocious tiger descending the mountain as he pounced towards Duan Ling Tian.
Ye Xuan was stunned since early on when Duan Ling Tian easily received Ye Hui’s palm strike because she never imagined that Duan Ling Tian would possess such a formidable strength.
Her second uncle was a Void Interpretation Stage expert!
Even if it was in the entire Driftcloud Town, he could be considered to be an existence at the top.
Before she could even recover from her shock, Ye Xuan’s face went pale.
Because she saw her father had actually pounced towards Duan Ling Tian, and she couldn’t help but be worried for Duan Ling Tian as her father’s strength was even stronger than her second uncle.
Ye Ting’s speed was swift, yet Duan Ling Tian’s speed was swifter, and his other hand flashed out to fiercely descend onto Ye Hui’s Dantian under Ye Hui’s fearful gaze.
Instantly, Ye Hui’s Dantian was broken apart, and his vast Origin Energy leaked out entirely.
“Ah!” The vital blood in Ye Hui’s body gushed up when his cultivation was crippled, and he couldn’t hold back the blood in his mouth and sprayed it out in large mouthfuls.
“You’re courting death!” Ye Ting had finally arrived, and he who had a spirit sword appear in his hand shouted out explosively as he struck out swiftly towards Duan Ling Tian who had his back towards him. His sword struck straight towards Duan Ling Tian’s vital point with the intention of killing Duan Ling Tian with a single blow and taking revenge for his younger brother who had his cultivation crippled.
An ear piercing sword howl entered into Duan Ling Tian’s ears in the blink of an eye, and it caused Duan Ling Tian’s brows to raise.
In the next moment, Duan Ling Tian easily flashed off to avoid Ye Ting’s sword strike, and he stood from afar as he looked coldly at Ye Ting.
Ye Ting was a second level Void Interpretation Stage martial artist, and he similarly didn’t take Ye Ting seriously.
But when he thought about how Ye Ting was Little Xuan’s father, Duan Ling Tian didn’t make a move against Ye Ting, and it could be considered to be him giving Little Xuan face as he was sincerely fond of this kind hearted young woman.
“Big Brother, avenge me! Avenge me!” Ye Hui held his Dantian as he sat on the ground, and he didn’t see the speed Duan Ling Tian had revealed earlier as he just howled in a low voice by himself.
The corners of Ye Ting’s mouth curled into a painful and bitter expression. How would he avenge his younger brother?
The sword strike from before was his strongest strike, and his swiftest strike.
Yet it was exactly a strike like that which was close at hand and about to hit when Duan Ling Tian had easily avoided it.
At that moment, what he felt was something only he understood clearly.
Now, he could be sure of one thing.
It was that Duan Ling Tian’s strength exceeded his imagination, and he was utterly not on the same level as Duan Ling Tian.
