Chapter 239: A Good Man
Translator: KurazyTolanzuraytor Editor: Lucas
Swallow Mountain County's County Governor?
Pei San's father?
Duan Ling Tian sized up the middle-aged man in luxurious clothing with interest.
"Commander Duan." Pei Yuan warmly greeted Duan Ling Tian, then he greeted Su Mo, Lin Yu, and Ji Yan.
In the next moment, his hand descended and directly crippled Zhu Liang's Dantian!
"Pei Yuan!" Instantly, Zhu Liang exclaimed out in grief, and his eyes were crimson as he stared angrily at Pei Yuan.
Pei Yuan instead paid no attention to Zhu Liang, and he casually threw Zhu Liang beneath Duan Ling Tian's feet. "Commander Duan, you've come to my Swallow Mountain County's County City for the first time. Consider this untrustworthy scum as my meeting gift to you....Even though he wouldn't have been able to flee even if I didn't make a move." As he finished speaking, Pei Yuan's gaze descended onto Xiong Quan, who was beside Duan Ling Tian, and he was slightly afraid.
"Then thank you, County Governor Pei." Duan Ling Tian nodded with a smile to Pei Yuan, then raised his leg before fiercely stomping on Zhu Liang's body....
Instantly, Zhu Liang's body was stomped into the ground.
"Little Fei." Duan Ling Tian called Li Fei over and seized back the grade eight spirit sword in Zhu Liang's hand, then he passed it to Li Fei, who had walked over in large strides.
"No....Don't...." After Zhu Liang noticed Li Fei's beautiful eyes emitting killing intent, coldness arose within his heart and he hurriedly shouted out in alarm.
Li Fei's gaze was cold as she lifted her hand. Her Origin Energy bloomed out, then the sword in her hand descended to pierce through Zhu Liang's body, impaling Zhu Liang's body to the ground.
Blood splattered all around....
Dazzling and resplendent.
After seeing Zhu Liang breath his last breath, the hatred on Li Fei's face finally vanished, but when she recalled her grandfather, she felt a burst of sadness and threw herself into Duan Ling Tian's embrace as she sobbed without restraint.
"It's alright, you've taken revenge for grandfather. If grandfather is aware in the afterworld, he will be able to rest in peace." Duan Ling Tian lightly patted Li Fei's back and consoled her in a gentle voice.
Meanwhile, the people present came to a sudden understanding. So it turned out that Duan Ling Tian wasn't taking revenge for his own grandfather and instead was taking revenge for the grandfather of his
"What a beautiful girl!"
"It's the first time I've seen such an unrivaled beauty in my lifetime."
"I'm afraid only a talent such as Commander Duan would deserve her."
The surrounding crowd of spectators was stirred once again.
Traces of admiration arose within their hearts towards Duan Ling Tian's actions of getting enraged because of his girlfriend and assisting her in seeking revenge.
A good man ought to be like Commander Duan of the Embroidered Uniform Guard!
Destroying the Zhu Clan in rage for the sake of his girlfriend!
"Commander Duan, you've come over from a great distance. No matter what, I, this County Governor of the Swallow Mountain County, must perform the duties of a host....I hope Commander Duan can do me the honor and come to my County Governor's Estate." Pei Yuan was an intelligent person, so only after Duan Ling Tian finished consoling Li Fei did he invite Duan Ling Tian.
"County Governor Pei, we husband and wife intent to invite Commander Duan to get together as well." Ji Yan smiled lightly. Even though Pei Yuan was the County Governor of Swallow Mountain County, he didn't care in the slightest, as Pei Yuan was only a Half-step Void Stage martial artist like him.
Su Ma laughed heartily when he saw Pei Yuan and Ji Yan fighting over Duan Ling Tian. "Regardless of where this kid goes, this old man will follow him to join in the fun and have a meal....The two of you won't mind, right?"
"Vice Guild Master Su, you're kidding. It's an honor," Pei Yuan and Ji Yan said, at almost the exact same time.
Meanwhile, Duan Ling Tian had already put away all the Spatial Rings of the Zhu Clan members, as well as those two grade eight spirit swords....
He had noticed as well that Pei Yuan and Ji Yan were looking at him, waiting for him to make a decision.
"County Governor Pei, I'll remember your favor from today. However, Commander Ji is my senior, and as a junior, I don't dare disobey my senior....So I hope County Governor Pei can forgive me." Duan Ling Tian politely refused Pei Yuan.
Duan Ling Tian couldn't help but have wicked thoughts in his heart:
If this Pei Yuan knew that the culprit who crippled the arm of his son, Pei San, was before him, I wonder what sort of expression he would have....
Pei Yuan was the County Governor of Swallow Mountain County after all, so he wasn't unhappy in the slightest when refused by Duan Ling Tian, but a smile still remained on his face. "Then Pei Yuan won't force you....However, the door to my County Governor's Estate is always open for Commander Duan. No matter when Commander Duan arrives, the County Governor's Estate will always treat Commander Duan as an honored guest."
"Thank you, County Governor Pei." Duan Ling Tian nodded. This Pei Yuan was far superior to Pei San; as expected of a governor of a county!
"Then Pei Yuan will take his leave." Pei Yuan said to Duan Ling Tian before leaving.
Arriving like the wind, leaving like the wind, incomparably elegant and unrestrained.
Along with the departure of Duan Ling Tian's group, the crowd that was gathered at the trade market at the center of the city finally dispersed.
Moreover, the incident from today was bound to be on the mouths of the County City residents for a long time from now....
Besides that, the Zhu Clan had completely gone into a decline.
Yu Clan Estate.
"Zhu Clan...." The Yu Clan's Patriarch, Yu Dian, had a complicated gaze. A great clan whose strength was not one bit inferior to his Yu Clan had its foundation completely destroyed by a young man that was not even 20!
"That Duan Ling Tian....Perhaps I shouldn't have allowed second brother and Grand Elder to seek revenge from him. Now second brother and Grand Elder have died, and even the Supreme Elder who headed to the Imperial City later on has completely vanished. He is surely dead." Yu Dian's face was filled with bitterness.
Presently, the people of the County City only knew that Duan Ling Tian had destroyed the Zhu Clan.
But only he knew that not only did Duan Ling Tian destroy the Zhu Clan, but also his Yu Clan.
Luckily, the news of the disappearance of a few Yu Clan Nascent Soul martial artists was locked down by him. Otherwise, the Yu Clan probably would have ceased to exist long ago.
Even if it was able to hold on with its last breath, it would be impossible for the Yu Clan to have its current status.
Of course, even though he knew that the cause of all this was Duan Ling Tian, Yu Dian didn't dare have any thoughts of revenge.
What a joke!
Not to mention Duan Ling Tian's identity, just with Duan Ling Tian's web of contacts, any power taken out at random would be sufficient to annihilate his Yu Clan!
"Duan Ling Tian...is virtually the bane of my Yu Clan," Yu Dian muttered, with a voice that was filled with bitterness.
As a business of the Violet Tulip Trading Company in the County City, this Agarwood Restaurant was many times more luxurious than the Agarwood Restaurant in Duan Ling Tian's hometown, Fresh Breeze Town.
Presently, within the pavilion at the top floor of the Agarwood Restaurant, five people sat around the table.
Only one person stood there, and that was Xiong Quan, who stood behind Duan Ling Tian.
Xiong Quan stood there, unmoving like a mountain.
However, at this moment, besides Duan Ling Tian and Li Fei; Su Mo, Lin Yu, and Ji Yan were all slightly uneasy....
Ji Yan glanced at Xiong Quan as he said to Duan Ling Tian, "Commander Duan, please let this lord sit down." Since an unknown time, a bitter smile had appeared on the corners of his mouth.
A dignified Void Prying Stage powerhouse stood at the side while he sat here. This made him feel very uneasy.
Lin Yu and Su Mo looked at Duan Ling Tian.
Duan Ling Tian discerned the uneasiness of the three, and he shook his head with a smile. "Xiong Quan, sit down."
"Yes, Young Master." Xiong Quan respectfully replied then sat down.
Only now did Ji Yan heave a sigh of relief.
In next to no time, their food had arrived, and it was all delicious delicacies and some good wine....
"Little sister Li Fei, as expected of one of the three great beauties of Aurora City, you're really beautiful." Lin Yu looked at Li Fei and lightly smiled.
Li Fei's beautiful face was slightly red, and she seemed slightly embarrassed. "President Lin, you're beautiful as well."
At this side, the two women whispered in discussion.
On the other side, Duan Ling Tian was instead chatting with Ji Yan and Su Mo....
"Kid, your choice that time wasn't wrong. Luckily, you didn't follow me to the Alchemist Guild that year; otherwise, it would virtually be burying your talents....You directed the armies of our Crimson Sky Kingdom to show our power and prestige in the battle at the northwest borders. Even I, this old man, can't help but admire you!" After drinking down a few cups of wine, Su Mo was slightly excited.
"Exactly, the battle was simply perfect! Sometimes I even think that if I had participated in the battle, how my blood would boil from that." Ji Yan agreed deeply. As the Guard Commander of the Violet Tulip Trading Company, he was an iron-blooded man in heart.
Duan Ling Tian only lightly smiled when he heard what they said.
Ji Yao looked more highly upon Duan Ling Tian when he saw Duan Ling Tian's reaction. "Commander Duan, to a certain extent, you can already be considered to be standing at the peak of the Crimson Sky Kingdom....What plans do you have for the future?"
Duan Ling Tian's eyes narrowed, and a trace of yearning flashed within. "Truthfully speaking, I returned to the Swallow Mountain County this time precisely for saying my farewells....After I've dealt with everything here, I won't stay long in the Imperial City and will leave the Crimson Sky Kingdom to head to the Azure Forest Imperial Kingdom."
Azure Forest Imperial Kingdom!
Su Mo and Ji Yan weren't surprised at Duan Ling Tian's decision, as with Duan Ling Tian's strength and natural talent, staying in the Crimson Sky Kingdom would only obstruct his progress.
Duan Ling Tian didn't belong to the Crimson Sky Kingdom!
And the Crimson Sky Kingdom couldn't hold him either.
Dragons, it was impossible for them to forever stay within the sea. They would eventually leap out of the sea and soar the nine heavens!
"Have you chose which sect are to enter?" Ji Yan asked.
As far as he was concerned, since Duan Ling Tian was heading to the Azure Forest Imperial Kingdom, Duan Ling Tian would surely have to find a sect to enter.
After all, only within those sects would Duan Ling Tian obtain better improvement.
A sect was the stage on which experts fought for supremacy. It was a good jumping board and was the best choice for a genius in the Martial Dao like Duan Ling Tian.
"I haven't." Duan Ling Tian shook his head. His knowledge of the Azure Forest Imperial Kingdom was merely restricted to the Boundless Sect and the Black Fiend Sect.
The Boundless Sect was the sect Xiong Quan used to be from.
The Black Fiend Sect was the sect that annihilated the Boundless Sect.
A trace of coldness flashed within the depths of Duan Ling Tian's eyes when he recalled the Black Fiend Sect.
That year, the scene within Misty Forest was something he wouldn't forget in his lifetime....
"Kid, remember that in front of me, you're just an ant! If I desired to kill you, it would be no different than killing an ant...I disdain to kill you." This was what the Black Fiend Sect's Void Stage powerhouse, Sun Rui, said to him....
Words that trampled upon his pride!
At that time, just a little bit more and he would have died at Sun Rui's hands.
He wouldn't forget that suffocating feeling in his lifetime.
"Disdain?" Traces of rage arose within Duan Ling Tian's heart.
Sun Rui, in the near future, I'll surely make you regret what you said that day....
