Chapter 61: Martial Meet Top Ten
Translator: / KurazyTolanzuraytor Editor: Lucas
Duan Ling Tian's eyes narrowed.
The reason he wanted to seize the championship in the Clan Martial Meet was exactly for the generous prizes.
Now that Patriarch Li Ao had asked him to admit defeat and even promised to compensate him with the same prize later...
With Li Ao having said this much, no matter what, he should give Li Ao some face.
His opponent was now standing on the combat arena and gazing at him condescendingly. The white-clothed youth that looked at him in contempt really caused him to feel extremely displeased.
He could imagine how complacent the youth would be at the moment he admits defeat.
On the high platform.
Li Ao frowned when he noticed that Duan Ling Tian wasn't swayed by his offer. He took a deep breath as if he had made up his mind on something.
"Duan Ling Tian, besides compensating you for the champion's prizes, in addition, I'll give you a promise. In the future, I will agree to help you with a matter that is within my ability and conforms to reason. How about it?"
Li Ao gave the final concession.
Duan Ling Tian couldn't help but be moved.
Patriarch Li Ao's promise...
That was something even 10,000 gold wouldn't be able to get you!
He didn't expect that Patriarch Li Ao would provide such a concession just to allow Li Qing to obtain the champion's position in the Clan Martial Meet.
Of course, he could guess why Li Ao was doing so.
The Li Clan's yearly Martial Meet has always been an event of great importance.
If the Li Clan Martial Meet champion was obtained by a disciple with another surname, if the news spread out, the Li Clan was bound to be ridiculed...
The Li Clan couldn't accept such a disgrace!
No matter what, Li Ao was still the Li Clan's Patriarch
If Duan Ling Tian wanted to continue staying in the Li Clan, no matter what, he had to give Li Ao some face.
In addition, Li Ao had already made such concessions.
If he was still unwilling, it would be hardly justifiable.
"I admit defeat!" under everyone's gazes, Duan Ling Tian said, in a calm manner, following which he returned to the side of the three girls.
His goal was to obtain the three-hundred-fifty-year-old Blood Lingzhi.
Now that he's obtained the Blood Lingzhi, it could be considered as a satisfactory outcome.
As for the reputation of champion, he didn't really care about it.
The people who were waiting for the match between Li Qing and Duan Ling Tian with extreme anticipation were struck dumb.
Duan Ling Tian admitted defeat?
Since Duan Ling Tian appeared, he had the bearing of a dark horse, sweeping through all opposition in a domination manner, without any fear whatsoever.
But now he actually admitted defeat.
This kind of drastic change caused most of the people present to be unable to accept it.
On the combat arena.
Hearing Duan Ling Tian admit defeat, Li Qing was dazed for a moment.
"To think I even took you as an opponent, but now it looks like you're not worthy to be my opponent."
Li Qing looked at the nearby violet-clothed youth that was surrounded by the three girls. The disdain in his eyes was ever stronger, vaguely containing a trace of envy.
Below the combat arena, it was a wave of noise.
"Duan Ling Tian actually admitted defeat, truly unexpected!"
"I've judged him wrongly. I thought he would have the courage to battle Li Qinf."
"To think he even possess the strength of three ancient mammoths; looks really can be deceiving."
"There really is a difference between the Core Formation Stage and the Body Tempering Stage in the end."
"LI Qing deserves to be our Li Clan's top disciple in the younger generation. He has a well-deserved reputation!"
The crowds discussion was one-sided.
Even the people who looked favorably upon Duan Ling Tian earlier had now turned around and belittled Duan Ling Tian to their hearts' content, praising Li Qing.
"Duan Ling Tian, why did you admit defeat?"
Li Shi Shi's beautiful eyebrows frowned, unable to understand Duan Ling Tian's decision.
She even felt like the current Duan Ling Tian was that much more unfamiliar...
The Duan Ling Tian she knew, the Duan Ling Tian she liked, was not the type of person to run before a battle.
In a blink of the eye, Duan Ling Tian's image in her heart suffered a disastrous decline.
"I felt like admitting defeat, so I admitted defeat," Duan Ling Tian casually said.
Li Shi Shi was flustered and exasperated, stomping her feet as she walked away angrily.
"Aren't the two of you curious?"
Duan Ling Tian's eyes narrowed as he looked at the two young girls beside him who had not spoken up till now.
"Since Young Master decided to do this, then surely Young Master has own intentions."
Ke Er lightly smiled.
"You got a considerable amount of rewards from the Patriarch, right?"
Li Fei glanced deeply at Duan Ling Tian.
"You...how did you know?"
Duan Ling Tian was dumbstruck. He looked at the seductive and beautiful young girl with a slightly shocked expression.
The young girl smiled mysteriously.
Unknowingly when, Li Qing had arrived at Li Fei's side, his burning gaze descending upon Li Fei.
Li Fei, however, ignored him.
"Fei Fei, this Branch Family disciple that doesn't even have the courage to battle me isn't worthy of you."
Li Qing took a deep breath, his tone filled with disdain.
Duan Ling Tian's eyes turned cold.
"Li Qing, whether he is worthy of me or not has nothing to do with you... But I know, that I will never choose you, so you'd be better off forgetting about me and stop annoying me."
Li Fei look at Li Qing in detest.
"Let's go over there."
Li Fei called Duan Ling Tian and Ke Er over.
Duan Ling Tian nodded. Before leaving, he didn't forget to smile at Li Qing in a threatening manner.
His smile caused Li Qing's expression to turn gloomy, and killing intent started to pour from his eyes.
Duan Ling Tian!
The killing intent emitted from Li Qing's eyes was naturally noticed by Duan Ling Tian.
But killing intent at that level, in Duan Ling Tian's opinion, was just like child's play.
This Li Qing probably hasn't even killed a man before.
His killing intent lacked blood thirst.
Following the end of Li Qing and Duan Ling Tian's battle, where Duan Ling Tian admitted defeat, the Li Clan Martial Meet entered its finale.
The final results were released.
This year's Clan Martial Meet top ten were as follows:
Champion, Li Qing, 86 points.
Second, Duan Ling Tian, 84 points.
Third, Li An, 82 points.
Fourth, Li Fei, 80 points.
Fifth, Li Zhong, 78 points.
Sixth, Li Hu, 76 points.
Seventh, Li Kuang, 74, points.
Eight, Li Shi Shi, 72 points.
Ninth, Ke Er, 70 points.
Tenth, Li Yuan, 68 points.
Ke Er didn't enter the arena for the battle between Li Shi Shi, directly admitting defeat.
As far as she was concerned, she was best friends with Li Shi Shi, so she wasn't willing to cross blades with her...
After this was the the moment where the Li Clan's Patriarch personally distributed the prizes.
When they went home, Duan Ling Tian was still in a group of three, only Li Shi Shi wasn't within it now.
Li Fei had replaced Li Shi Shi.
Inner court Martial Arts Practice Field.
As Li Qing stood there, his body emitted a frightful presence.
He was looking from afar at the violet-clothed youth and Li Fei chatting as their shadows faded in the distance...
"Li Qing, how about we join hands and find an opportunity to teach that Duan Ling Tian a lesson?"
Unknowingly when, Li An had arrived beside Li Qing and voiced his suggestion.
Li Qing coldly swept Li An with his gaze, his expression filled with disdain.
"Li An, you're the same as him, both opponents that have suffered defeat at my hands... Do you think I would join hands with a defeated opponent to deal with another defeated opponent?"
Li Qing was extremely arrogant, using a condescending tone as he spoke with Li An.
"Since you're not interested, then forget it."
Li An laughed embarrassedly before turning around and leaving.
At the instant he turned around, his expression was extremely ugly, and his eyes flickered with a frightful coldness.
Duan Ling Tian and the two girls had just returned home.
The two little pythons flew towards Duan Ling Tian and Ke Er, coiling around their wrists.
After which, they extended their small heads to size up the young girl with a seducing body and beautiful appearance. Their eyes were filled with curiosity...
"These are... snakes you two are raising?"
Li Fei was slightly startled when she saw them.
Under Duan Ling Tian's slightly dazed gaze, Li Fei extended her hand to touch the little black python that was coiled on his wrist.
The little black python closed its eyes in enjoyment.
After a short moment, the little black python's body flashed as it actually coiled itself around Li Fei's wrist.
Duan Ling Tian looked at the little black python with an envious gaze.
"Tian, Ke Er, who is this?"
At this moment, Li Rou walked out of her room, her gaze completely attracted by Li Fei.
Li Fei was really too outstanding.
In terms of appearance, she was not even slightly inferior to Ke Er.
Moreover, because of her age being eighteen, she had fully revealed her womanly charms.
"Mom, this is your future daughter-in-law."
Duan Ling Tian laughed slyly.
"Hello Aunt Rou, I'm Li Fei."
Giving Duan Ling Tian an angry look, Li Fei lightly smiled as she greeted Li Rou.
"Good, good. You all talk, I'll go prepare dinner."
Li Rou's face seemed to bleed like a flower as she entered the kitchen.
"Madam, I'll help you."
Ke Er followed behind.
"Little Fei, you still haven't told me how you knew that I obtained rewards from the Patriarch and purposely admitted defeat."
Duan Ling Tian's eyes stared fixedly at Li Fei.
"Why should I tell you?"
Li Fei gave Duan Ling Tian a disdainful glare.
"You're my future wife, what's with all the why's?"
Duan Ling Tian laughed slyly.
"Pei! You're shameless. Who's your future wife."
Li Fei ignored Duan Ling Tian altogether, extending her jade-like hand to lightly play with the little python.
The little python wasn't even slightly shy with stranger, playing happily on Li Fei's hand.
As a amorous weapons specialist who swept through the flower bushes, Duan Ling Tian was naturally able to notice that since he saved Li Fei on the combat arena, Li Fei's attitude towards him was completely different.
If he was so coquettish to her before, she would surely get enraged.
He believed that as long as he put in a bit more effort, he would surely be able to completely conquer the peerless seductive beauty before him...
Not long after, someone paid them a visit.
Someone had sent over an extremely long box.
Duan Ling Tian opened it and smiled in satisfaction at what he saw.
He didn't expect Patriarch Li Ao to have such high efficiency, sending over the items so quickly.
"This is...three-hundred-fifty-year-old Blood Lingzhi?"
Li Fei recognized the Blood Lingzhi that lay in the box. She was startled for a moment before looking at Duan Ling Tian in disbelief.
"Didn't you already guess it?"
Duan Ling Tian smiled.
"Your prizes this time are even better than Li Qing's. Li Qing only got the prize for the champion, but you not only obtained the champion's prize, you also got the prize for the top three."
Li Fei glanced at Duan Ling Tian in admiration.
"How about it? Me being your man won't bring shame to you, right?"
Duan Ling Tian laughed slyly, his burning gaze descending upon the two jade-like hills on Li Fei's chest. His lower regions became slightly hot.
"Where are you looking?"
Li Fei's beautiful eyebrows knit together as her seducing face blushed until her neck.
"You're so beautiful."
Duan Ling Tian's breathing became rapid, he took a deep breath before finally being able to ease up his restless mood.
"Even pearls aren't so real."
"Didn't you say that I need to lose weight?"
