3247 The Zhuge Siblings

    "The Leaders of the Gan Jiang Progeny and the Mo Xie Progeny are fraternal twins; that's why they look somewhat similar," Gongsun Jing promptly explained upon hearing Huan'er's words. "Individually, they're no match for my grandfather or the sect leader. However, if they join forces, they'll have the advantage if the fight drags on." Then, he lowered his voice before he continued to say, "Rumor has it that in the past, a titled Celestial Emperor who tried to conquer the Nan Dou Territory was killed by them. When they join forces, not only in the Thousand Tribulations Sword Sect, but they're also invincible in the entire Nan Dou Territory. As twins, not only do they think alike, but they've also comprehended the extremely powerful Fusion Method."

    Upon hearing Gongsun Jing's words, Duan Ling Tian's eyes brightened when he looked at the twins again. He did not expect the seemingly harmless-looking duo to be so formidable; they were even capable of killing a titled Celestial Emperor.

    Duan Ling Tian asked through Voice Transmission, "Your grandfather's strength should be comparable to a titled Celestial Emperor, right?"

    "My grandfather has fought a few titled Celestial Emperors in the past. He told me one of them was weaker than him while the others were as strong as him," Gongsun Jin replied.

    With this, Duan Ling Tian confirmed that Gongsun Kang, the Leader of the Yellow Thearch Progeny, was comparable to a titled Celestial Emperor.

    "What about Sect Leader Yu?" Duan Ling Tian asked again.

    "Sect Leader Yu is not any weaker than a titled Celestial Emperor as well. If he wishes to, he could obtain a title in the Title Temple." He paused for a moment before he said, "A few years ago, my grandfather and Sect Leader Yu had a duel, and the duel ended in a tie. However, I suspect the sect leader is now slightly stronger than my grandfather."

    Duan Ling Tian nodded. His emotions were slightly stirred. There were so many powerhouses in the Thousand Tribulations Sword Sect who were capable of killing titled Celestial Emperors and comparable to titled Celestial Emperors. However, the sect was just a grade-one force?

    'A supreme-force mostly has one or two titled Celestial Emperors, right? Although the sect isn't what it once was, it should still be supreme-force...' Duan Ling Tian was aware of this since he had some knowledge about the forces in a Devata Realm.

    After a moment, Duan Ling Tian dismissed his thoughts and observed the situation in the main hall of Tai-Ah Peak.

    It was silent after the Leaders of the Gan Jiang Progeny and the Mo Xie Progeny arrived.

    In the end, Gongsun Kang was the first to break the silence. "Both of you came for Duan Ling Tian and Huan'er as well?" A hint of helplessness could be seen in his eyes as he smiled wryly. Although he had higher seniority and the twins addressed him as senior uncle, if both of them joined forces, he was no match for them.

    "Senior Uncle Gongsun, I want Huan'er," the beautiful young woman, the Leader of the Mo Xie Progeny, said with a smile.

    The Leader of the Mo Xie Progeny only said, "Duan Ling Tian."

    "I didn't expect both of you would be interested in these two youngsters. In that case, this old woman won't compete with you for them," Ximen Wan Wan, the Leader of Yu Chang Progeny, said as she shook her head. Following that, she vanished into thin air.

    "Since both of you are here, this old man won't compete with you as well." Chong Jiu shook his head and left with a smile on his face.

    At this moment, Yu Jian Cheng, the Sect Leader of the Thousand Tribulations Sword Sect, smiled and greeted the twins. "Senior Brother Feng, Senior Sister Yun."

    The name of the Leader of the Gan Jiang Progeny was Zhuge Feng while the Leader of the Mo Xie Progeny was Zhuge Yun.

    "Junior Brother Jian Cheng, are you going to compete with us?" Zhuge Yun asked with a faint smile on his face.

    "Since both seniors are here for them, how dare I compete with you for them?" Yu Jian Cheng smiled wryly.

    Upon hearing Yu Jian Cheng's words, Zhuge Yun nodded, clearly delighted. Then, she looked at Gongsun Kang. "Senior Uncle Gongsun, do you have the heart to compete with us two lonely people?"

    "Lonely people?" Duan Ling Tian was confused.

    "The two leaders are the only members of the Gan Jiang Progeny and the Mo Xie Progeny... They have no disciples under them," Gongsun Jing explained, "It's really strange. How could they be so well informed about what happened in the Genius Secret Realm when they don't have any disciples?"

    At this moment, Su Li said, "I'm the one who told them about it."

    "Ah, I forgot the Shadow Support Progeny has a close relationship with the Gan Jiang Progeny and the Mo Xie Progeny." Gongsun Jing smiled sheepishly.

    "Su Li, when we were in the Genius Secret Realm, I assumed you wanted me to join the Yellow Thearch Progeny. Isn't that why you suggested we bring Gongsun Jing with us into God's Secret Treasure? Do you want us to join the Gan Jiang Progeny and the Mo Xie Progeny?" Duan Ling Tian asked through Voice Transmission.

    "Duan Ling Tian, I suggested you bring Gongsun Jing with us so Leader Gongsun would owe you a favor," Su Li replied, "However, the Gan Jiang Progeny and the Mo Xie Progeny are more suitable for you and Huan'er compared to the Yellow Thearch Progeny. Joint Strike Method is the two leaders' strongest technique. You and Huan'er can learn this from them. Moreover, the two leaders are very protective. If you become their disciple, no one in and outside of the Thousand Tribulations Sword Sect would dare to seek trouble with you or Huan'er," Su Li explained through Voice Transmission.

    "Thank you, Su Li." Duan Ling Tian expressed his gratitude. He was naturally touched by Su Li's kind intentions.

    "It's nothing," Su Li said with a smile. They had been friends for so long, it was only natural that he wanted the best for his friend. Moreover, he was happy that he was able to reunite with Duan Ling Tian and be in the same sect as Duan Ling Tian.

    "Since both of you are keen to take them as disciples, I won't interfere. It's about time for the Gan Jiang Progeny and the Mo Xie Progeny to have disciples anyway." Gongsun Kang shook his head and left.

    After the Leaders of the Gan Jiang Progeny and the Mo Xie Progeny arrived, the other leaders of the progenies left and did not contend with them.

    Zhuge Yun smiled and asked politely, "Huan'er, are you willing to join my Mo Xie Progeny?" Although the other leaders had given up, she still needed Huan'er's consent after all.

    As usual, Huan'er did not respond immediately. Instead, she looked at Duan Ling Tian for answers.

    "Huan'er, you should join the Mo Xie Progeny," Duan Ling Tian said with a smile. Since Su Li had arranged everything for them, there was no reason to reject his good intentions.

    Upon obtaining Duan Ling Tian's approval, Huan'er turned to Zhuge Yun and nodded.

    "Young man, you're truly blessed." Zhuge Yun shook her head and sighed. "Fortunately, I'm not a man. Otherwise, I would be jealous of you."

    "Why do you think all men would be jealous of him?" Zhuge Feng, who was standing next to Zhuge Yun, asked.

    Zhuge Yun glared at her twin brother. However, there was a hint of helplessness in her eyes. She had tried sending many beauties to seduce her brother, but he was not moved at all. He was only devoted to cultivation. In the end, she had given up on ever having a sister-in-law in this life.

    "Duan Ling Tian, are you willing to join my Gan Jiang Progeny?" Zhuge Feng looked at Duan Ling Tian and forced a smile on his face. It was such a rare sight that even Zhuge Yun, Yu Jiang Cheng, Gongsun Jing, and Su Li were shocked. This cold and aloof person actually smiled?

    "Senior, I'm willing to join the Gan Jiang Progeny... However, I already have a master. Before I obtain his approval, I'm afraid I can't acknowledge another master," Duan Ling Tian replied honestly, "If senior insists that I acknowledge you as my master, I'm afraid I won't be able to join the Gan Jiang Progeny."

    "It's just a title, I don't care about it." Zhuge Feng shook his head. At the same time, his admiration for Duan Ling Tian grew. After all, not everyone would be so steadfast and loyal.

    "Progeny Leader." Duan Ling Tian bowed after hearing Zhuge Feng's words.

    A smile appeared on Zhuge Feng's face again. He was clearly satisfied with the first disciple of the Gan Jiang Progeny. Individually, he was not a match for Yu Jian Cheng. Yu Jian Cheng would constantly brag about his records in the Genius Secret Realm to him. Most importantly, the records that Yu Jian Cheng had broken were his records! Therefore, he was inwardly delighted that his disciple had broken Yu Jian Cheng's records. Despite being expressionless, he could be rather petty in certain matters. Naturally, the biggest reason he was satisfied with Duan Ling Tian was due to Duan Ling Tian's high innate talent and comprehension skills. Although Duan Ling Tian was 300 years old, the same age as Su Li, Duan Ling Tian was stronger than Su Li. He used to envy the Leader of the Shadow Support Progeny for having a disciple like Su Li. How could he not be pleased when his disciple was even more outstanding than Su Li?
