“My master seems to be fond of him. I wouldn’t have paid any attention to him if it weren’t for my master,” the tall young man said derisively as he shook his head, “So what if he’s a genius if he can’t grow stronger?”
‘The young man was Long Xiao, Elder Lei’s eldest disciple. Shi Tong Ming, who had conveyed Elder Lei’s intention to accept Duan Ling Tian as a disciple previously, was his junior brother.
Long Xiao could tell that his master was slightly displeased by Duan Ling Tian’s refusal even if his master did not say much. For this reason, he began to hate Duan Ling Tian. When he heard that Duan Ling Tian had gone to the trading hall to exchange for two Auspicious Pills, he had asked his close
friend, Shangguan Xiong Feng, who was Elder Feng’s eldest disciple, to snatch the two Auspicious Pills from Duan Ling Tian to vent his anger.
Due to their close relationship, Shangguang Xiong Feng readily agreed to help Long Xiao.
“Are you going to ignore him after this or do you still plan to look for trouble with him?” Shangguan Xiong Feng asked.
“He dares to refuse my master. I naturally won’t let him off so easily,” Long Xiao said with a scoff as his eyes glinted icily, “We’ll humiliate him later and rub salt in his wounds.”
Shangguan Xiong Feng laughed. “Alright, update me about your plans. I’m very interested in this matter. We should find a chance to get rid of him for good after he becomes a King of Gods. Based on his behavior today, he’s either a coward or he’s hiding his strength. If we don’t get rid of him, based on his
talent and comprehension skills, he’ll definitely surpass us in the future. At that time, it’d be disastrous for us if he decides to seek revenge.”
Killing intent flashed in Shangguan Xiong Feng’s eyes at the end of his words.
“There’s no rush,” Long Xiao said with a faint smile, “I want to see him crawl 10 miles to beg my master to accept him as a disciple. However, based on my master’s character, I know he won’t accept Duan Ling Tian again. We can take our time and kill him once he becomes a King of Gods when he thinks
his future is incomparably bright.”
“You’re right,” Shangguan Xiong Feng said with a nod, “I didn’t expect us to share the same idea.”
The loss of the two Auspicious Pills hindered Duan Ling Tian’s cultivation progress greatly. After all, the two pills could have helped him to become a King of Gods in just a day. Although he had several divine pills that could help with his cultivation, none of them could compare to the Auspicious Pills.
Under such circumstances, Duan Ling Tian could not even use the Consolidation Divine Fruit that he had obtained as a reward for becoming a core disciple.
“That’s right!’ Duan Ling Tian’s eyes suddenly lit up as he thought to himself, ‘I forgot about the Zhong clan!”
After the incident at Zhong clan’s restaurant in Skywind City, the Zhong clan had been very respectful toward him and had compensated him generously for their transgression. If he was not mistaken, they must have given him half of their wealth as compensation. This meant that the Zhong clan must
still have at least five Auspicious Pills.
‘Tshould look for Zhong Tian Nu.’
With that, Duan Ling Tian left his new residence that was located near the core disciples’ training ground.
The training ground was located in a mountain range, and more than 100 courtyards of various shapes and sizes were scattered in its surroundings. Only a few dozen of the courtyards were occupied. When Duan Ling Tian arrived, he had casually picked an empty courtyard to live in. After all, similar to
the inner disciples’ residence, and unlike the Ten Stars students’ residence, the cultivation environment was the same no matter which courtyard he picked.
After a while, Duan Ling Tian finally found Zhong Tian Nu.
“Young Master Duan, how can I help you?” Zhong Tian Nu was shocked and anxious when he saw Duan Ling Tian had come looking for him.
Duan Ling Tian’s recent performance had shocked everyone in the Hidden Fog Sect, including Zhong Tian Nu. He did not expect Duan Ling Tian to be so monstrously talented and to have such a profound comprehension of the law of space. Based on Duan Ling Tian’s rise in the Hidden Fog Sect, it would
not take long for Duan Ling Tian to be able to easily overpower the Zhong clan.
“Thave a request. Can you ask your godfather if he still has any Auspicious Pills left? I’m willing to exchange a mediocre divine artifact for three Auspicious Pills,” Duan Ling Tian bluntly said.
The Zhong clan should be willing to make this trade since Duan Ling Tian was offering something of high value to them.
“Tl speak to my godfather about this,” Zhong Tian Nu said. He did not waste time and sent his godfather, the Clan Leader of Skywind City’s Zhong clan.
Soon enough, after receiving a reply, Zhong Tian Nu said apologetically, “Young Master Duan, my godfather apologizes. Indeed, we had five Auspicious Pills. However, they’ve been recently distributed to the younger generation so we only have one left. My godfather said he’ll send the remaining one to
you, but there’s no need for you to give us anything in return.”
Although Duan Ling Tian was slightly disappointed, he was still happy to obtain one Auspicious Pill. “Please tell your clan leader that I’m grateful for his kind gesture.”
Although Duan Ling Tian had been ruthless toward the Zhong clan in the past, he had let go of his grudge since the Zhong clan had been very cooperative. However, when he recalled his encounter with the Zhong clan’s death warriors, he reminded himself to not let his guard down. The only reason the
Zhong clan feared him so deeply was due to their misunderstanding of his and Duan Qiao Yu’s relationship. Without Duan Qiao Yu and Yu Qiu Yan, the Zhong clan would not have been so submissive.
When Duan Ling Tian returned to his residence, he saw someone waiting for him at the entrance.
It was a tall and muscular young man dressed in a dark golden robe. He was rather handsome and had a majestic and dignified air about him.
“You are?” Duan Ling Tian cocked an eyebrow.
“Long Xiao,” the young man said before he disappeared and reappeared in front of Duan Ling Tian and sized Duan Ling Tian up.
“Long Xiao?” An ominous feeling rose in his heart immediately. After Shangguan Xiong Feng had snatched his two Auspicious Pills, Zhang Jin had briefly spoken about Long Xiao. Hence, he knew Long Xiao was Elder Lei’s eldest disciple.
Elder Lei was one of the four Supreme Elders of the Hidden Fog sect. Duan Ling Tian had refused his invitation through Shi Tong Ming.
Zhang Jin had brought up Long Xiao because he had suspected Shangguan Xiong Feng’s actions had something to do with Long Xiao since Long Xiao had a good relationship with Shangguan Xiong Feng. Moreover, Shangguan Xiong Feng had no use for the Auspicious Pills, and it was below him to snatch
Auspicious Pills from his juniors. After all, he had to maintain his reputation and his master’s reputation.
Although Zhang Jin had said this was just his speculation and he was not sure, Duan Ling Tian thought that it was highly likely that Zhang Jin was right.
Long Xiao said arrogantly, “Let me introduce myself. I’m Long Xiao, Elder Lei’s eldest disciple. Shi Tong Ming, whom you previously met, is my junior brother.”
“How can I help you?” Duan Ling Tian asked tonelessly.
“I’s nothing,” Long Xiao said mockingly as he shook his head, “I heard that someone snatched away your two Auspicious Pills, which you’d traded for with a mediocre divine artifact. I heard the culprit is Shangguan Xiong Feng, Elder Feng’s eldest disciple?”
“So? Did you come to mock me?” Duan Ling Tian remained calm. He had long guessed that Long Xiao had come to rub salt on his wound.
“Of course not,” Long Xiao said as he shook his head, “I’m here to provide you with a solution. Shangguan Xiong Feng only dared to snatch the pills from you due to your lack of support in the sect, right? Do you think he’d dare to do this if you were my master’s disciple? If you become my junior brother,
Shangguan Xiong Feng will definitely return the two Auspicious Pills he snatched from you..”
