Chapter 876: Sudden Change In The Situation
Translator: KurazyTolanzuraytor Editor: JayC
Whoosh! Whoosh! Whoosh! Whoosh! Whoosh!
Numerous figures, both male and female flashed through the sky to arrive shortly before Duan Ling Tian and Huang Daniu, and then they surrounded Duan Ling Tian and Huang Daniu like a human wall, protecting the two of them behind them.
These people were all disciples of the Wood Peak.
“This…” Duan Ling Tian and Huang Daniu glanced at each other and were able to see shock from each other’s eyes.
At the same time that the actions of these Wood Peak disciples caused them to be shocked, warmth arose in their hearts.
These Wood Peak disciples were protecting them.
Presently, after the crows of Wood Peak disciples had protected Duan Ling Tian and Huang Daniu behind them, they looked at He Gang with a vigilant expression as if He Gang was a dreadful monster.
“Elder He, you can’t lay a hand on them!”
“Elder He, if you want to kill them, then first get through us!”
The crowd of Wood Peak disciples were united as one, and their faces were filled with rage when they faced He Gang.
“All of you… What’re all of you doing?” He Gang took a deep breath, and his face beneath his curly beard was filled with shock.
Never had he imagined that two young men that had just arrived at the Wood Peak and hadn’t even officially registered themselves as disciples would actually possessed such ability to draw the Wood Peak disciples to their side.
Can anyone tell me what the f*ck is going on?
“What’re all of you doing?!” Luo Chen stood by He Gang’s side, and he swept the crowd of Wood Peak disciples with a cold gaze as he said with a deep voice, “Don’t all of you forget that you’re disciples of the Wood Peak… Now, my master, an elder of the Wood Peak, wants to punish these two people that have indiscriminately slaughtered an innocent would-be Wood Peak disciple, yet all of you dare interfere? Do all of you want to die?”
As he finished speaking, Luo Chen’s eyes were suffused with ghastly killing intent that swept towards the crowd of Wood Peak disciples, and he seemed to want to use this to threaten them.
Unfortunately, the crowd of Wood Peak disciples seemed to have utterly not heard Luo Chen, and their gazes that were filled with vigilance stayed on He Gang from the beginning until the end.
It was as if they were deeply afraid that He Gang would make a move against Duan Ling Tian and Huang Daniu once more.
For a time, the atmosphere at the scene became extremely heavy.
He Gang stood there in midair without the slightest movement.
Even though that even if the crowd of Wood Peak disciples interfered, he had completely certainty of being able to kill Duan Ling Tian and Huang Daniu, but he didn’t act in this way.
His heart was filled with curiosity at this moment.
What did Duan Ling Tian and Huang Daniu rely on to make a crowd of Wood Peak disciples be able to act to such an extent for them?
As the saying goes, those the obtain the support of the masses obtain the world.
Even though Duan Ling Tian and Huang Daniu hadn’t officially become Wood Peak disciples, but they’d obtained the support of everyone in the Wood Peak, and even he, an elder of the Wood Peak, felt embarrassed from his inferiority.
“Duan Ling Tian, Daniu… Are you two alright?” An anxious voice sounded out from afar and approached, and accompanying this voice was a figure that flashed over swiftly, and it arrived before the crowd of Wood Peak disciples that had formed a human wall.
“We’re fine.” Meanwhile, Duan Ling Tian and Huang Daniu soared up from behind the crowd and stood before the person that had arrived.
This person was precisely Chen Wei!
At this moment, Chen Wei’s expression was extremely unsightly as he’d already roughly found out everything that had happened from the Wood Peak disciple that had come looking for him earlier.
Never had he imagined that he’d just returned to his residence and sat cross-legged in cultivation for just awhile when such a great incident had happened outside.
There was actually someone that wanted to kill Duan Ling Tian and Huang Daniu and annihilate the future of their Wood Peak!
If it was before, Chen Wei would surely greet the Wood Peak’s elder, He Gang, first once he made an appearance.
But he didn’t do so now, and he bowed to the crowd of Wood Peak disciples instead and said with a serious expression, “Thank you, all of you. All of you have done well! I believe that with all of you here, our Wood Peak’s future will surely be bright!”
“Senior Brother Chen Wei, you’re too kind.”
“Yeah, Senior Brother Chen Wei, this is something that we ought to do.”
“Senior Brother Chen Wei, you and Elder Ke have rendered great merit to our Wood Peak!”
“All that we’ve done is insignificant things.”
The crowd of Wood Peak disciples replied successively.
“Thank you.” Meanwhile, Duan Ling Tian and Huang Daniu bowed to the crowd of Wood Peak disciples as well.
Perhaps the crowd of Wood Peak disciples didn’t have strengths that were more formidable than the two of them, but everything these Wood Peak disciples had done earlier caused the two of them to feel heartfelt gratitude.
The crowd of Wood Peak disciples revealed friendly smiles when facing Duan Ling Tian and Huang Daniu’s expression of gratitude.
“Elder He!” Chen Wei turned around, and his face sank as he looked at He Gang who stood in the distance. “May I know how Duan Ling Tian and Huang Daniu have offended you to actually cause you to intend to kill them?” Chen Wei’s voice was filled with a questioning tone.
“Chen Wei, who do you think you are? Are you even worthy to speak like this to my master?” He Gang hadn’t spoken when Luo Chen had already sneered with disdain.
“Luo…” He Gang had already noticed that something was amiss. Presently, when he saw his disciples was still so rash, he couldn’t help but frown and intended to restrain Luo Chen.
But he’d just opened his mouth when he was interrupted by a cold and indifferent voice that descended from the heavens.
“If he’s unworthy, then what about me?!” The cold and indifferent voice sounded out and drew the gazes of everyone.
High above in the sky, two old men descended side by side.
The two old men currently had extremely unsightly expressions. Especially the one-armed old man that had just spoken, his eyes were even flickering with extremely icy coldness.
His gaze was like a venomous snake that lay in ambush and would attack at any moment!
“Elder… Elder Yang, you’ve returned?” He Gang couldn’t help but be stunned when he saw the one-armed old man, as he never imagined that this old man would return to the Wood Peak.
After all, after the old man’s personal disciple was poached away by the Fire Peak’s Master 10 years ago, the old man left the Five Element Sect in his rage and went to stay at the point of operations of the Wood Peak in Settlement City.
He never expected that after 10 years, the old man would actually return once more.
“Who’re you?” Luo Chen obviously didn’t recognize the one-armed old man, and he frowned as he asked in a low voice.
“Luo Chen, don’t be disrespectful! This is Elder Yang, the number two expert in our Wood Peak… Quickly apologize to Elder Yang!” When he saw his disciple actually daring to offend the old man, cold sweat emerged from He Gang’s forehead as he hurriedly shouted out with a grim voice.
The number two expert of the Wood Peak?
Luo Chen’s face completely went pale when He Gang said this.
“He… He’s Elder Yang Ling?” Suddenly, Luo Chen’s gaze descended onto the one-armed old man’s severed arm.
Subsequently, his body trembled for no reason as he seemed to have recalled some sort of terrifying incident.
Even though he’d only take Elder He as his master eight years ago and had come to the Five Element Sect seven years ago, but he’d heard his master mention this old man on many occasions.
This old man was called Yang Ling, and he was the most formidable existence in the Wood Peak below the Peak Master.
“Elder… Elder Yang.” Luo Chen couldn’t help but shiver, and then he lowered his head in panic and bowed to Yang Ling. “I… I didn’t know your identity earlier, Elder Yang Ling, I hope that Elder Yang can forgive me.”
“Hmph!” Yang Ling grunted coldly, and he didn’t seem to make any movement, yet a bang resounded out.
In the next moment, Luo Chen’s entire body flew out like an arrow that left the bow, and he repeatedly spat out a few mouthfuls of blood on the way.
Luo Chen who was barely able to stop his figure in midair had a countenance that was pale as a sheet, and then he looked at Yang Ling. “Elder Yang, I was wrong! I was really wrong!”
From the beginning until the end, he wasn’t able to react to exactly when the one-armed old man before him had made a move.
He knew that if the one-armed old man wanted to kill him, then he wouldn’t be able to last to breathe another breath.
“Elder Yang, why did you do that?” When he saw Yang Ling strike his disciple even after his disciple had apologized to Yang Ling, He Gang instantly felt embarrassed and asked with a low voice.
“Why?” Yang Ling glanced indifferently at He Gang, and in the next moment, he’d vanished on the spot.
When he appeared once more, he was already at the spot He Gang stood at previously, whereas, He Gang had instead been blasted flying and followed in the footsteps of Luo Chen.
“Duan Ling Tian, Huang Daniu… The Wood Peak will give both of you an explanation for the incident today!” Ke Zheng who came along with Yang Ling spoke to Duan Ling Tian and Huang Daniu with a solemn expression.
In the distance, He Gang’s countenance was pale as he stared angrily at Yang Ling. “Yang Ling, don’t think that I’m afraid of you just because you’re the number two expert of the Wood Peak… If you don’t give me an explanation for the incident today, then I’ll ask the Peak Master to uphold justice for me!”
“The Peak Master?” A wisp of a cold smile arose on the corners of Yang Ling’s mouth when he heard He Gang. “If the person standing here at this moment wasn’t me but the Peak Master… Do you think that you and your disciple would only suffer this little bit of punishment?”
“Huh?” Needless to say, Yang Ling’s words had shocked He Gang.
Subsequently, He Gang’s gaze descended onto Duan Ling Tian and Huang Daniu as he faintly realized that everything before him was relation to these two young men.
Who exactly are these two young men?
Why would the crowd of Wood Peak disciples willingly protect them?
Why would Yang Ling and Ke Zheng stand up for them?
At this moment, his heart was filled with questions and more questions.
“Chen Wei, when I heard you say He Gang wanted to kill Duan Ling Tian and Huang Daniu, I rushed over urgently… What exactly is going on?” Right when the atmosphere was slightly strange, Ke Zheng looked at Chen Wei and asked with a low voice.
Chen Wei took a deep breath and didn’t conceal anything as he spoke of the matter of his path being obstructed by Luo Chen and Hong Xi while bringing Duan Ling Tian’s group of three over.
“Not only did Luo Chen and Hong Xi obstruct our paths, they even repeatedly humiliated Duan Ling Tian and Daniu, and they called the two of them pieces of trash… Many brothers and sisters here can bear witness to all of this.” When he spoke up to here, Chen Wei looked around his surroundings and the crowd of Wood Peak disciples that were stood scattered in all directions.
“Exactly! I can bear witness that Luo Chen and Hong Xi had indeed humiliated Duan Ling Tian and Huang Daniu like that at that time.”
“I can bear witness as well!”
“If it wasn’t for them being overbearing, Duan Ling Tian and Huang Daniu would have surely not made a move.”
“Even the calmest person has a temper, let alone Duan Ling Tian and Huang Daniu… If I was the two of them, I would be unable to endure being humiliated like that as well!”
The numerous Wood Peak disciples spoke out in succession.
Martial artists possessed firm and unyielding characters as they stood in the heavens and the earth, and even the might of the heavens and earth would be unable to make them bend down.
They would rather die standing than kneel to live!
If one was capable of remaining indifferent when being humiliated by another like that, then what was the point of cultivating?
If they were even unable to protect themselves, then how could they protect their loved ones?
He Gang’s face went completely grim when he heard the crowd of Wood Peak disciples who spoke out in unison.
