Chapter 3925: Duan Ling Tian is About to Leave the Flying Dragon Sect
Xue Hai Chuan had already guessed Duan Ling Tian had something to do with Liu Yin’s death when Duan Lng Tian brought up the matter. His guess was confirmed when Duan Ling Tian brought out Liu Yin’s divine artifact. He asked worriedly, “Little Tian, did you kill Liu Yin after he was injured by an Underworld Elder? Did that Underworld Elder die? It won’t be good if he exposes you. Although the Flying Dragon Sect can’t do anything to you because of the Pure Yang Sect, it’ll taint your reputation. The Pure Yang Sect might look at you differently because of this matter. After all, it’s a shameful thing to kill a fellow member of the same sect.”
In Xue Hai Chuan’s opinion, Duan Ling Tian was strong enough to kill a newly-promoted White Dragon Elder, but it would not be easy for him to kill a veteran White Dragon Elder like Liu Yin. Moreover, although he himself was stronger than Liu Yin, he was not confident he would be able to kill Liu Yin.
“Brother Hai Chuan, rest assured,” Duan Ling Tian said with a smile, “We’re the only ones who know about this matter. Moreover, I was only defending myself since Liu Yin tried to kill me.”
Xue Hai Chun sighed in relief upon hearing these words. After a while, his gaze changed as he looked at Duan Ling Tian and said, “It seems like you’ve hidden much of your strength. This is amazing. To have such strength when you’re not even 3,000 years old. It’s unprecedented even in the entire Eastern Ridge Mansion.”
After a pause, Xue Hai Chuan said solemnly, “My brother and I will forever be indebted to you.”
Duan Ling Tian shook his head and said with a smile, “Brother Hai Chuan, I didn’t kill him because of you and Brother Hai Shan. I only killed him because he tried to kill me.”
Duan Ling Tian did not mention how Liu Yin had mastered the secret technique to the true detonation of his Little World, which would likely kill Xue Hai Chuan if Xue Hai Chuan fought with Liu Yin. He broke out in cold sweat when he thought about how close he was to dying. He was lucky that he managed to kill Liu Yin. Otherwise, Liu Yin would be a huge threat to Xue Hai Chuan in the future.
Finally, Duan Ling Tian said, “Brother Hai Chuan, I’m leaving the sect in two days. Invite Brother Hai Shan back from Revered Elder Sikong’s cultivating ground, and invite Brother Yan Nian as well. Let’s have a drink together tonight.”
Xue Hai Chuan nodded. “I already heard you’d be leaving with the Emperor of Gods from the Pure Yang Sect in two days. Very well. I’ll bring my brother over now. With Liu Yin gone, there’s no need to trouble Revered Elder Sikong to look after my brother.”
Duan Ling Tian shook his head and said, “Don’t let your guards down. Liu Yin is dead, but the people around him are alive. Who knows if they want to avenge Liu Yin or carry out his revenge for him… It’s best to eliminate these people as soon as possible.”
“Don’t worry. I’ll get someone to deal with them,” Xue Hai Chuan replied. In fact, after learning that Liu Yin had died, he had already made plans to get rid of Liu Yin’s loyal subordinates who might be a threat to his brother, Xue Hai Shan.
“That’s great,” Duan Ling Tian said with a nod. He knew Xue Hai Chuan must have already come up with a plan.
That night, Duan Ling Tian drank to his heart’s content with Xue Hai Chuan, Dongfang Yan Nian, and Xue Hai Shan. He was in good company, and it had been a while since he had felt so relaxed. Now, he was not only protected by the Flying Dragon Sect, but he was also protected by the Emperor of Gods from the Pure Yang Sect. With this, even Xue Ming Zhi, the Vice Sect Leader of the Flying Dragon Sect, would not dare to make a move.
After Duan Ling Tian and Xue Hai Shan were drunk, the relatively sober Xue Hai Chuan and Dongfang Yan Nian exchanged a glance.
Dongfang Yan Nian said with a sigh, “Little Tian really has a lot of worries…”
“If even he can’t deal with it, we won’t be able to help him,” Xue Hai Chuan said with a sigh as well.
Although Duan Ling Tian did not say anything, Xue Hai Chuan and Dongfang Yan Nian could tell that something was weighing on Duan Ling Tian.
The next day, Xue Hai Chuan and Dongfang Yan Nian saw Duan Ling Tian out after he sobered up.
“Little Tian, if there’s anything we can help you with, don’t hesitate to get in touch with us,” Xue Hai Chuan said solemnly, “You don’t have to be polite with us.”
“That’s right,” Dongfang Yan Nian nodded as he chimed in, “Feel free to find us. However, I don’t know if we’d be of help for much longer since you’re going to surpass us soon in strength.” ...
Dongfang Yan Nian shook his head. He had never met anyone who progressed as quickly as Duan Ling Tian did.
“Alright,” Duan Ling Tian said with a smile, completely forgetting about how drunk he had gotten the night before. Although the duo had good intentions, he knew they would not be able to help him with matters regarding supreme-rank forces.
“Little Tian,” Dongfang Yan Nian said again, “The war points you gave me are more than what you owed me. Let me know if you need something. I’ll help you get it from Peace City or our sect.”
“Thank you, Brother Yan Nian,” Duan Ling Tian replied.
After returning the war points he owed, he distributed the contribution points he owned equally between Xue Hai Chuan and Dongfang Yan Nian. After all, the contribution points were useless to him once he left the Flying Dragon Sect. However, Xue Hai Chua refused the contribution points. Since he had already killed Liu Yin, Xue Hai Chuan felt it would be inappropriate to take anything from him again. As such, all the contribution points were given to Dongfang Yan Nian in the end. In fact, Dongfang Yan Nian refused as well, but the drunk him was very persistent so Dongfang Yan Nian had no choice but to accept it in the end.
“Brother Hai Chuan, Brother Yan Nian, I’ll take my leave now. Please say goodbye to Brother Hai Shan for me when he wakes up. Brother Yan Nian, please tell sister-in-law that I said goodbye too,” Duan Ling Tian said before leaving.
Following that, Duan Ling Tian looked for Ding Yan and Hou Qing Ning, another two of his friends in the Flying Dragon Sect.
That night, he drank again. However, this time, he did not get drunk like Ding Yan and Hou Qing Ning.
After Hou Qing Ning was drunk, he reminded Duan Ling Tian to be extra cautious after joining the Pure Yang Sect. After all, competition among peers was particularly fierce in powerful forces. He was a young master of a king-rank force so he was privy to all the struggles and politics in a force.
As for Ding Yan, he vowed to join the Pure Yang Sect in the future.
The next day, after bidding farewell to Ding Yan and Hou Qing Ning, Duan Ling Tian went to look for Zhen Ping Fan. He had contacted Zhen Ping Fan the night before and arranged to meet in Zhen Ping Fan’s courtyard.
On his way there, Duan Ling Tian ran into Long Qing Chong, who seemed to be waiting for him.
Long Qing Chong said with a smile, “Duan Ling Tian, you’re the most outstanding disciple the Flying Dragon Sect has ever had. As the sect leader, I’m very proud of you. You brought us glory by joining the Pure Yang sect. Although we’re also an emperor-rank sect, we’ve passed our prime. Nonetheless, we’re always generous to our own people. This is a small token from the sect before you leave.”
Then, Long Qing Chong tossed a spatial ring over to Duan Ling Tian.
“Sect leader…” Duan Ling Tian furrowed his brows slightly.
Before Duan Ling Tian could speak, Long Qing Chong said, “Consider this a reward from the sect. Don’t feel like you owe us a favor because of this.”
Duan Ling Tian smiled wryly. “That’s not what I meant…”
Although Duan Ling Tian did not spend a particularly long time in the Flying Dragon Sect, the sect had a place in his heart. After all, Long Qing Chong and some of the members here had helped him during his lowest point. For that reason, although his sense of belonging to the sect was not strong, he would never refuse to help the Flying Dragon Sect if it needed help.
Duan Ling Tian only wanted to refuse Long Qing Chong because he felt that he had already obtained everything he wanted from the Flying Dragon Sect and Peace City. The things that were given to him were likely not things that he needed so he felt it was better to leave them to those who needed them.
