Chapter 411 - Elder Feng Ping
"Big Brother Ling Tian, you were too evil earlier… Hehe." The little gold mouse’s voice transmission entered into Duan Ling Tian’s ears, and her words obviously pointed towards the incident that happened earlier.
"See, some things can be easily solved… You don’t necessarily have to kill people." Duan Ling Tian guided patiently with an appearance of being a model for others.
"I saw, I saw… In the future, I won’t kill them as well, I’ll make them remove all their clothes and run around in their birthday suit… So fun, so fun! As for those fierce beasts or demon beasts, I’ll make them skin themselves, then…" Duan Ling Tian felt a chill run down his spine as he listening to the muttering of the little gold mouse via voice transmission.
This little devil…
She seems to not be talking about only humans, right?
She still wants to make those fierce beasts and demon beasts remove their ‘clothes’ as well?
For a time, Duan Ling Tian felt a chill in his back.
This little fellow is too terrifying!
After he passed through the small alley and continued forward, Duan Ling Tian saw a large street.
According to the reminder of the nice person form before, Duan Ling Tian walked forward with large strides and though in his heart. "Looks like Zhao Lei directly returned to the Ancient River Trading Company’s branch.
According to Duan Ling Tian’s knowledge, besides the two elders, there were still another three inner court disciples that were sent to the Ancient City of Everlast, and Zhao Lei ought to be one of the three inner court disciples.
"Third level Nascent Soul Stage? He probably loafs around here." Duan Ling Tian thought in his heart.
He believed that even if the Ancient River Trading Company was in an any poorer state, it would still be impossible for it to not possess a third level Nascent Soul Stage martial artist…
Presumable, the Ancient River Trading Company depended more on the two Seven Star Sword Sect elders.
When Duan Ling Tian thought up to here, he’d already arrived at the turn in the road.
Meanwhile, a great deal of discussions entered into Duan Ling Tian’s ears again.
These discussion were mostly one’s of taking pleasure in another’s misfortune.
"Haha… Did all of you see earlier? It’s was Zhao Lei. Zhao Lei actually returned with his bare butt… I’m dying of laughter!"
"He normally seemed to be pretending to be what he was not, and relied on his status as a Seven Star Sword Sect inner court disciple to be treat others with contempt… Now, retribution has finally come."
"I wonder who made him come back like that. If I know who it is, I’ll surely treat him to a few cups of wine."
Duan Ling Tian had a strange expression when he heard these discussions.
Looks like that Zhao Lei’s reputation isn’t very good around here.
Finally, Duan Ling Tian turned past the turning and arrived before a spacious courtyard…
Two stone tiger statues stood before the courtyard.
"This ought to be the Ancient River Trading Company’s branch in the Ancient City of Everlast." Duan Ling Tian said to himself.
"Who are you?" Duan Ling Tian noticed that when he intended to walk into the courtyard, the two young men that were originally standing by the door and laughing with their hands over their mouth had stopped him in a timely manner.
These two young men wore uniform attire, and a single word ‘Ancient’ was embroidered on their chest.
Presumable, they were probably members of the Ancient River Trading Company.
Duan Ling Tian raise his hand and patted the clothed on his body, revealing the symbol on the Seven Star Sword Sect inner court disciple’s attire.
"Seven Star Sword Sect inner court disciple?" Instantly, the pupils of the two young men constricted.
They gazes quickly descended onto Duan Ling Tian’s face, and their eyes were filled with disbelief…
"I’ve come to look for Elder Zhao Yu and Elder Feng Ping." Duan Ling Tian nodded to the two and lightly smiled.
Although the two young men were shocked by Duan Ling Tian’s age, one of them still walked out and greeted Duan Ling Tian into the Ancient River Trading Company’s branch. "Please follow me."
"Thank you." Duan Ling Tian lightly nodded and followed.
"Little Brother, are you really a Seven Star Sword Sect inner court disciple?" The young man that brought Duan Ling Tian in asked slightly hesitantly.
Duan Ling Tian shook his head and smiled. "You wouldn’t think I’m pretending like that Zhao Lei, right? Would I deliver myself here and meet the two Seven Star Sword Sect elders if I was pretending?"
"Right." The young man came to a sudden understanding, as he didn’t think Duan Ling Tian had such large courage, and as the same time, he asked with a strange gaze. "You encountered your Seven Star Sword Sect’s inner court disciple, Zhao Lei, earlier?"
"Yes." Duan Ling Tian nodded.
"When you encountered him… Was he wearing clothes?" The young man asked.
"Yes." Duan Ling Tian nodded.
The young man was instantly interested, and he came close to Duan Ling Tian before asking in a low voice. "I saw Zhao Lei coming home with a bare butt… Did you see who removed all his clothes?"
"I did." Duan Ling Tian nodded once again. Besides the crowd of people that spectated outside the Ancient City of Everlast, there would probably be no one that was clearer of this incident.
"Who?" The young man’s gaze lit up, and he was intrigued.
"Himself," Duan Ling Tian said slowly.
"Himself?" The young man was stunned and had an expression of disbelief.
Right when the young man recovered from his shock and wanted to get to the bottom of it.
"It’s you! Kid, you actually dared come to the Ancient River Trading Company’s branch… Do you really think you can deceive my father and Elder Feng Ping?" A voice that contained extreme raged suddenly sounded out.
It was Zhao Lei who’d changed into a new Seven Star Sword Sect inner court disciple’s attire and stood in the distance as he glared at Duan Ling Tian.
Zhao Lei’s gaze was extremely gloomy and it descended onto Duan Ling Tian as he said in a low voice. "Not to mention you’re pretending to be a Seven Star Sword Sect inner court disciple, but you actually dared to deliver yourself here… You can’t flee even if you have wings this time!"
"Pretending to be a Seven Star Sword Sect disciple?" The expression of the young man from the Ancient River Trading Company that brought Duan Ling Tian in went grim, and his figure flashed to get away from Duan Ling Tian as if he was avoiding the plague.
"You… You’re not a Seven Star Sword Sect disciple?" The young man looked vigilantly at Duan Ling Tian.
Duan Ling Tian smiled indifferently and shrugged. "Didn’t I tell you before that this Zhao Lei thinks I’m pretending? Truly laughable! If I’m pretending, then why would I come here and walk into a net?"
The young man felt Duan Ling Tian’s words were logical and he hurriedly looked at Zhao Lei.
"Hmph!" Zhao Lei coldly snorted. "Who knows if you have any schemes and plots? Let me tell you, your plans will come to nothing before me, Zhao Lei!"
"Really?" Duan Ling Tian sized up Zhao Lei and the corners of his mouth curled into a ridiculing smile. "Zhao Lei, I’m truly curious… Could it be that there’s no other clothes in your Spatial Ring? Besides that, I only asked you to take off your clothes and enter the city in your birthday suit, and I wouldn’t have any objections if you wore your clothes once you entered the city. But I never expected that you actually threw your clothes outside the city and didn’t want them anymore." As he spoke up to here, Duan Ling Tian intentionally sighed.
"You… You…" When Duan Ling Tian’s words entered Zhao Lei’s ears, it caused him to be as if struck by lightning, and his face went extremely gloomed and even savage. "Kid, don’t be complacent! Now, since you dared deliver yourself, then don’t think of leaving!"
Duan Ling Tian had a calm expression as he looked at Zhao Lei and said in disdain, "I really never thought of leaving."
"Hmm?" Duan Ling Tian’s reaction slightly exceeded Zhao Lei’s expectations.
For a time, his heart couldn’t help but sink.
"Could it be that he’s realty a Seven Star Sword Sect disciple?" This thought suddenly appeared within Zhao Lei’s heart, and after it arose, it was difficult to restrain any longer.
When he calmed his heart down, Zhao Lei recalled that this young man was an existence that could defeat him. Although he couldn’t be considered to be strong amongst the Seven Star Sword Sect inner court disciples, he was a third level Nascent Soul Stage martial artist at any rate.
Whereas this young man looked to be around 22 at most.
The young man’s being capable of defeating him at such a young age showed how monstrous the young man’s natural talent was!
"Could it be that I haven’t returned to the sect for a few years and a monster like this has actually appeared within the sect?" Zhao Lin’s heart trembled.
"No! It can’t be! He’s surely not a Seven Star Sword Sect disciple… He’s surely not…" As he thought up to here, Zhao Ling was in a complete panic.
He wasn’t in panic because of him tearing apart the letter in Duan Ling Tian’s possession that was written personally by the Sect Leader earlier.
That matter was only a small matter to him.
He was in panic because if this young man really was a Seven Star Sword Sect disciple, then once his father found out about the sequence of event of the matter, his father might not help him teach the young man a lesson.
He couldn’t just let today’s incident go like that!
"Zhao Lei, what’s going on?" An indifferent voice sounded out from afar and attracted Duan Ling Tian’s gaze.
Under Duan Ling Tian’s gaze, a middle aged man in azure colored casual clothes walked over slowly, and the middle aged man’s pace was stable, showing that his cultivation was outstanding.
Duan Ling Tian’s acute Spiritual Force stretched out and found out about the middle aged man’s cultivation at the first possible moment.
Third level of the Void Prying Stage!
"Elder Feng Ping." Right when Duan Ling Tian was curious of the person’s identity, that Zhao Lei had already bowed respectfully to the person.
"Elder Feng Ping?" Duan Ling Tian’s gaze lit up.
Feng Ping was one of the Seven Star Sword Sect elders that Linghu Jin Hong asked him to look for, and he was one of the Seven Star Sword Sect elders that were stationed in the Ancient River Trading Company’s branch in the Ancient City of Everlast.
"You are?" After replying to Zhao Lei, Feng Ping’s gaze descended onto Duan Ling Tian, then he frowned and his gaze suddenly became fierce. "Who are you? Why are you wearing my Seven Star Sword Sect inner court disciple’s attire?"
With Duan Ling Tian’s current age, no one would believe that Duan Ling Tian was an inner court disciple of the Seven Star Sword Sect.
After all, even the figures amongst the five great young masters that were the most outstanding in the younger generation of the Azure Forest Imperial Kingdom, might not have the strength to become a Seven Star Sword Sect inner court disciple at such an age.
"Elder Feng Ping…" Duan Ling Tian looked at Feng Ping, and he hadn’t even finished speaking when he was interrupted by Zhao Lei.
"Elder Feng Ping! This person is pretending to be an inner court disciple of our Seven Star Sword Sect, he should be killed for his crimes… Elder Feng Ping, please kill this person to avoid any future troubles!" Zhao Lei looked at Duan Ling Tian and his eyes emitted ghastly coldness as he said in a clear voice.
Feng Ping’s face sank when he heard Zhao Lei, then he looked at Duan Ling Tian. "Exactly who are you? Why are you pretending to be an inner court disciple of my Seven Star Sword Sect?"
"Elder Feng Ping!" Zhao Lei was anxious when he saw Feng Ping wanting to give Duan Ling Tian an opportunity to explain. "This person is full of tricks. There’s no need to talk with him, just directly kill him!"
"Haha…" Duan Ling Tian naturally was able to discern Zhao Lei’s aim, and he couldn’t refrain from bursting into loud laughter.
His laughter was unrestrained, confident and fearless.
