Chapter 862: Xue Nai Is Deceived
Translator: KurazyTolanzuraytor Editor: JayC
Fifth level of the Void Interpretation Stage at around the age of 25?
In the thousand over years of history of our Five Element Sect, a monster like this seems to have never appeared, right?
“He does indeed look to be only around the age of 25… But if he usually pays attention to taking care of his appearance and coupled with him being a Void Interpretation Stage martial artist, his true age is probably around 30.” The person that arrived before the old man continued.
“In the younger generation of our Five Element Sect, an existence possessing a cultivation at the fifth level of the Void Interpretation Stage while around the age of 30 can still be considered to be at the top.” The old man’s eyes flashed with a bright light as a wisp of an evil smile suffused the corners of his mouth. “Ke Zheng, I truly never imagined that you just took a trip out and found a disciple with such extraordinary natural talent for your Wood Peak…”
“But unfortunately, you’re bound to have the benefits reaped by our Earth Peak!” The old man looked at the person that just arrived and instructed. “Go meet that person privately and say that so long as he’s willing to join our Earth Peak, the Earth Peak will bestow upon him a grade two spirit weapon and a seventh level Concept Fragment that’s suitable to him.”
“Grade two spirit weapon? Seventh level Concept Fragment?” The person’s pupils couldn’t help but constrict when he heard the old man, and he asked with slight astonishment. “Elder Tang, is it worth it?”
“Of course!” A bright light flashed in the old man’s eyes, and he muttered in a low voice that only he himself could here. “The worth a young expert like this can create at that place isn’t just this little bit.”
“Go on!” The old man waved his hand to dismiss the person that had arrived.
Duan Ling Tian sat cross-legged on the bed in the spacious room, and he let out a long breath of air.
“My Spiritual Force maintained itself at the sixth level of the Void Interpretation Stage since the beginning, and it hasn’t changed in the slightest up until now… Looks like this is 100% the side effect left behind by the strength the Devilseal Tablet bestowed upon me.” Duan Ling Tian laughed bitterly.
Even though he’d already seen past it earlier, when he experienced the fight with the bandit today, he couldn’t help but start scrutinizing his Spiritual Force once again.
If his Spiritual Force was at the seventh level of the Void Interpretation Stage when he encountered the group of bandits today, then he would utterly not require Ke Zheng to make a move, as he alone would be sufficient to completely annihilate them!
“Even though the Devilseal Tablet is capable of bestowing the strength to kill Void Transformation Stage experts upon me, yet the side effect it left behind is great… Just a single time caused my mood to become difficult to control and easily causing me to become restless. Besides that, it even suppressed the advancement of my Spiritual Force.” With a raise of his hand, Duan Ling Tian withdrew the Devilseal Tablet and looked at it as he muttered in a low voice. “What exactly are you? Even though you saved my life, yet you seized many things from me…”
Even though he was unwilling to admit it, yet Duan Ling Tian had to admit it.
If he didn’t have the energy of the Devilseal Tablet that gushed into his body, it would be utterly impossible for him to survive the siege of the six elders of Skywolf Fort.
Compared to his own life, no matter if it was his mood fluctuating easily or his Spiritual Force becoming stagnant, all of them seemed to be insignificant.
In the southern area of the northern desert, the Ancient Desert City.
Two beautiful figures practically appeared in the sky at the same time, and they looked down at the city beneath their feet.
These were two young women, one wore yellow clothes, the other wore green clothes.
It was Han Xue Nai and Mu Xue Yi that came from the Darkhan Dynasty.
“Xue Nai, this is the Ancient Desert City?” Mu Xue Yi sized up the city beneath her curiously as she asked Han Xue Nai.
“It is!” Han Xue Nai nodded, and then her eyes lit up as she plunged down. “Let’s go! We’ll go ask people where the Martial Competition of the Ten Dynasties was held.”
“Xue Nai, wait for me!” When she saw Han Xue Nai vanish like a wisp of smoke, Mu Xue Yi lightly stomped her elegant leg before hurriedly following up to Xue Nai.
After they walked into a restaurant, Han Xue Nai and Mu Xue Yi sat down before calling over the attendant.
“Do you know about the Martial Competition of the Ten Dynasties?” Han Xue Nai asked.
“Of course I do!” The attendant hurriedly nodded, and then he said, “Young Miss, you just arrived at our Ancient Desert City, right?”
“Yes.” Han Xue Nai nodded.
“No wonder. But, Young Miss, if you came for the Martial Competition of the Ten Dynasties, then I’m afraid you’re late… It ended over a month ago.” The attendant smiled. “But, Young Miss, even if you arrived on time, you wouldn’t be able to watch it with your own two eyes and would only be able to wait for news from the outside.”
“Why?” Han Xue Nai frowned as she asked.
“Because the Martial Competition of the Ten Dynasties was held by the Skywolf Fort and was held in the outer fort, so it prohibited any outsider from watching.” The attendant continued. “At that time, even though many people came to join in the fun, yet all of them stayed outside and waited for the news.”
“Skywolf Fort?” Mu Xue Yi was stunned, and then she asked the attendant. “What’s the relationship with this Skywolf Fort and the Skydog Fort? Why’re their names so alike?”
“Skydog Fort?” The attendant was stunned. “What’s that?”
“Doesn’t your Ancient Desert City have a Skydog Fort?” Mu Xue Yi asked with a bewildered expression as she remembered that this was what Han Xue Nai told her.
“Xue Yi, you’ve got it wrong… The Skydog Fort I spoke of is the Skywolf Fort he spoke of. I truly never imagined that the Martial Competition of the Ten Dynasties was actually held by the Skydog Fort.” Han Xue Nai said to Mu Xue Yi, “Xue Yu, let’s go. We’ll go ask the Skydog Fort if they know where Big Brother Ling Tian went after the Martial Competition of the Ten Dynasties ended.”
The two young women stood up in unison and headed out of the restaurant.
“Skydog Fort?” The attendant’s expression had gone grim since early on when he heard Han Xue Nai call the Skywolf Fort as Skydog Fort.
There’s actually someone in Ancient Desert City that dares address the Skywolf Fort like this?
Does she not want to live?!
The attendant couldn’t help but be stunned when Han Xue Nai finished speaking.
Martial Competition of the Ten Dynasties? Big Brother Ling Tian?
Instantly, the attendant’s eyes lit up abruptly. “Could it be that the Big Brother Ling Tian she spoke of is Duan Ling Tian that obtained the first in the Martial Competition of the Ten Dynasties? The assailant that killed the eldest grandson of our clan, Young Master Han?”
This restaurant he worked in now was a business under the Dongguo Clan.
In the Dongguo Clan, he was only a tiny figure on the border with a low status, yet it didn’t represent that he was willing to be lowly forever.
He had a heart that wanted to rise high in the world!
Because of this, he paid close attention of many things in the Dongguo Clan just for the sake of waiting for a chance to turn around his fate.
He knew clearly of the incident of the Dongguo Clan’s Young Master Han being killed over a month ago.
The Dongguo Clan’s Young Master Han was killed by a young man called Duan Ling Tian.
At the same time, Duan Ling Tian was a young expert that obtained first place in the Martial Competition of the Ten Dynasties, and he’d left with the members of the Blade Sect after the martial competition came to an end.
Never had he imagined that he would encounter someone that knew Duan Ling Tian today. Moreover, it seemed to be someone that had an extremely intimate relationship with Duan Ling Tian.
He vaguely realized that his chance had arrived.
“I’m going to turn around my fate!” As he shouted in his heart, the attendant chased up to Han Xue Nai and Han Xue Yi that had just walked out from the inn. “Young Misses, is the person you want to find called Duan Ling Tian?”
Duan Ling Tian!
The attendant’s words caused Han Xue Nai to stop moving and turn around, and then she asked with glowing eyes. “Attendant, you know my Big Brother Ling Tian?”
“Of course.” The attendant said with a smile, “Young Miss, to be frank, this restaurant before you belongs to the Dongguo Clan.”
“The Dongguo Clan?” Han Xue Nai’s beautiful brows frowned. “What’s that got to do with my Big Brother Ling Tian?”
“What if the person Young Miss wants to find is a guest at the Dongguo Clan now?” The attendant’s eyes narrowed as he asked with a smile.
“Big Brother Ling Tian is a guest at the Dongguo Clan you spoke of? Quickly tell this Young Miss where that Dongguo Clan is!” Han Xue Nai asked excitedly.
“Young Misses, may I know what’s the relationship between the two of you and Young Master Ling Tian? According to my knowledge, since Young Master Ling Tian obtained the honor of the first in the martial competition, there were many people that wanted to pay a visit to him, yet he doesn’t just see anyone.” The attendant spoke with slight difficulty.
He naturally did this because he wanted to understand the relationship of these two young women with Duan Ling Tian a step further.
If they didn’t have an intimate relationship with Duan Ling Tian, then even if he deceived them into the Dongguo Clan, he wouldn’t be able to obtain any benefit.
“Hmph! How can those people compare to me? You go to the Dongguo Clan now and find my Big Brother Ling Tian, tell him Xue Nai is waiting here for him… Believe it or not, Big Brother Ling Tian will appear before this Young Miss in the time of ten breaths?” Han Xue Nai was instantly enraged when she heard the attendant.
The attendant completely confirmed it when he heard Han Xue Nai.
The yellow clothed young woman before him surely possessed an extraordinary relationship with Duan Ling Tian. Otherwise, how could she dare boast like this?
“Young Miss, calm your anger. I was worried that someone would disturb Young Master Ling Tian’s peace, so I asked this question. Since Young Miss has an extraordinary relationship with Young Master Ling Tian, then I’ll bring you to the Dongguo Clan to see Young Master Ling Tian right now.” The attendant spoke as he led the way. “Young Misses, the Dongguo Clan is just over there.”
“Xue Yi, let’s go! We’ll go look for Big Brother Ling Tian.” Han Xue Nai called out to Mu Xue Yi, and then both of them followed the attendant to head towards the Dongguo Clan.
In next to no time, the three of them arrived outside the Dongguo Clan Estate.
A few Dongguo Clan disciples guarded outside the entrance to the Dongguo Clan Estate, and they instantly frowned when they saw three people walking towards them.
Right at this moment, a voice transmission entered into their ears, causing their frowned brows to ease up.
“Don’t at rashly and alert the enemy! The two young women behind me are the younger sisters of the assailant that murdered Young Master Han over one month ago, Duan Ling Tian… I’ve deceived them by saying Duan Ling Tian is a guest in the Dongguo Clan, so all of you cooperate with me! Otherwise, once the Patriarch hands out punishment, all of you will be unable to bear the responsibility.”
This was naturally the voice transmission of the attendant.
“Hey! These two Young Misses are the younger sisters of Young Master Ling Tian and have come to see Young Master Ling Tian, quickly go report their arrival!” The attendant stood at the entrance of the Dongguo Clan Estate and raised his chest before speaking to the Dongguo Clan disciples.
“So it’s the younger sisters of Young Master Ling Tian, quickly come in.” The Dongguo Clan disciples that received the attendant’s voice transmission and had been warned by him didn’t dare be disrespectful in the slightest, and one of them hurriedly welcomed Han Xue Nai and Mu Xue Yi into the Dongguo Clan Estate.
“I’ll go notify Young Master Ling Tian!” Another disciple walked into the Dongguo Clan Estate alone, and he flashed swiftly towards the residence of the Dongguo Clan’s Patriarch, Dongguo Lei.
