1947 An Unyielding Duan Ling Tian

    After devouring Yuan Hong's Innate Spiritual Root, Duan Ling Tian's now possessed a blue Innate Spiritual Root.

    However, after he had devoured Yuan Kuang's Innate Spiritual Root, there were no obvious changes to his Innate Spiritual Root. Duan Ling Tian was not surprised by this at all.

    Although Yang Kuang had a green Innate Spiritual Root, it was worth nothing before his blue Innate Spiritual Root.

    It would undoubtedly take a long time before he could further raise the level of his blue Innate Spiritual Root. Devouring a green Innate Spiritual Root was akin to a drop of water in a bucket.


    With just a thought, Duan Ling Tian withdrew his 10,000 Swords Territory, appearing before the Vermilion Bird Sanctum's disciples.

    However, even when Duan Ling Tian appeared before them, the Vermilion Bird Sanctum's disciples did not look at Duan Ling Tian. Instead, their attention was on the two bodies that were falling from the sky.

    Thud! Thud!

    The two bodies crashed on the ground loudly causing the scene to fall silent.

    While the Vermilion Bird Sanctum's disciples were still in shock, Duan Ling Tian transmitted his voice to Gu Li and told him about how Yang Chong, the fifth elder of the Northern Plethora Sect, had come to make things difficult for him. Apart from that, Duan Ling Tian also revealed his purpose of coming here today to pass the Secret Tactic that could nullify the Soul Searching Secret Tactic to Gu Li.

    "Junior Brother Ling Tian, run away now! Otherwise, you won't be able to run anymore when the Enforcement Elder of Vermilion Bird arrives!" Gu Li transmitted his voice to urge Duan Ling Tian to leave. His voice was laden with anxiety.

    In his opinion, Duan Ling Tian had killed Yuan Hong and Yuan Kuang This could be seen as a challenge to the Fire Worship Sect's authority. For this reason, the sect would not let Duan Ling Tian go!

    "Don't worry, Senior Brother Gu Li. I have my own way to deal with this." Duan Ling Tian remained calm when he heard Gu Li's words. He smiled confidently at Gu Li, causing Gu Li to be momentarily stunned.

    Where did his Junior Brother Ling Tian get his confidence from?

    Killing fellow disciples in the Fire Worship Sect was not a minor crime.

    Meanwhile, the Vermilion Bird Sanctum's disciples present on the scene had also regained their senses. There was a hint of terror in their eyes as they looked at Duan Ling Tian.

    Duan Ling Tian's ruthlessness had left a deep impression on them.

    "Duan Ling Tian really dares to act as he wishes. He even dares to kill Yuan Kuang after killing Yuan Hong!"

    "Ruthless! He's too ruthless! I can't believe there's such a ruthless person in the Black Turtle Sanctum!"

    "From what I know, before he entered the Black Turtle Sanctum, he was already a ruthless person. Otherwise, he wouldn't have dared to offend the Black Turtle Sanctum's First Silver Flame Elder Li An by killing Yang Wu, the son of the fifth elder of Northern Plethora Sect."

    "However, no matter how ruthless he is, he's definitely going to be sentenced to death! Killing fellow disciples is not a petty crime. He'll have to pay with this crime with his life!"

    Many Vermilion Bird Sanctum's disciples whispered among themselves. All of them felt Duan Ling Tian would die today. He would have to pay the price of killing the Yuan Brothers with his own life!

    "It's unfortunate he only has a yellow Spiritual Root. If he possesses a blue or above Innate Spiritual Root, coupled with the fact that he has mastered three high-grade Divine Abilities, the higher-ups would only give him a minor punishment. They would not sentence him to death even if he kills a few more people!"

    "Dreams are always more beautiful than reality. Reality is mostly cruel. It has been confirmed in the Black Turtle Sanctum that Duan Ling Tian has a yellow Innate Spiritual Root. He's definitely going to die today is the yellow Spiritual Root. For this reason, he will definitely die today!"

    "It's such a pity that a genius who managed to comprehend and master three high-grade Divine Abilities is going to be sentenced to death!"

    The Vermilion Bird Sanctum's disciples continued to whisper among themselves. Most of them felt Duan Ling Tian would not be able to survive this.

    "I wonder if Duan Ling Tian is going to run away since he knows he's going to die. Although the chances of him surviving his low, if he just stays here, there's zero chance of him surviving."

    "If I were him, I'll risk it and run even if I know the chances of me successfully escaping isn't high. If I really manage to run away, at least I'll be able to live."

    "Look at him. It seems like he doesn't intend to run away at all.

    Many Vermilion Bird Sanctum's disciples shifted their eyes to Duan Ling Tian only to discover that he did not intend to run away at all.

    Duan Ling Tian stood there quietly as though he was waiting for something.

    Soon after, a Vermilion Bird Sanctum's elder finally arrived.

    "Elder Wu!"

    "Elder Wu!"

    Upon seeing the Silver Flame Elder, the Vermilion Bird Sanctum's disciples bowed at him politely and humbly.

    The elder was a fat old man. On top of that, he was short as well, causing him to look like a ball. His face was so fat that only a small pair of eyes could be seen.

    However, this fat old man's small pair of eyes radiated with vigor and were much sharper than the average person.

    "The Vermilion Bird Sanctum's Enforcement Elder?" Duan Ling Tian could guess the old man's identity when he saw the crowd paid their respect to him.

    The Vermilion Bird Sanctum's Enforcement Elder Wu Yi found the Yuan Brothers' bodies with the help of the Vermilion Bird Sanctum's disciples. His expression turned grim immediately as his eyes shone with a terrifying light.

    "You're Duan Ling Tian?" Wu Yi shifted his gaze to Duan Ling Tian. When he saw how indifferent Duan Ling Tian was acting, sitting cross-legged, he became furious immediately.

    "Stand up!" Wu Yi shouted after he took a deep breath. His voice had a majestic quality to it that left no room for arguments.

    Shivers ran up the spines of the Vermilion Bird Sanctum's disciples present on the scene when they heard Wu Yi's shout.

    They were very clear that although the Enforcement Elder of their Vermilion Bird Sanctum appeared meek and harmless, he was actually really terrifying. Otherwise, he would not have been able to become the Vermilion Bird Sanctum's Enforcement Elder!

    "Junior Brother Ling Tian, he's Enforcement Elder Wu Yi from our Vermilion Bird Sanctum. He appears meek and harmless, but that's not the case. Try to do as he says since no one knows what he's going to do!" Gu Li immediately transmitted his voice to Duan Ling Tian. His tone was laden with worry.

    Duan Ling Tian narrowed his eyes when he heard Wu Yi shouting at him. He then stood up in a neither hurried nor slow pace and left the courtyard in the sky.

    When he drew close to Wu Yi, he bowed slightly and cupped his hands in front of him. "Good day to you, Elder Wu Yi!"

    "You flatter me!" Faced with Duan Ling Tian's bow, Wu Yi's expression relaxed slightly even though his tone still sounded menacing.

    "I'm the Vermilion Bird Sanctum's Enforcement Elder Wu Yi. The reason I'm here is about the deaths of the Vermilion Bird Sanctum's disciples, Yuan Hong and Yuan Kuang. You, Duan Ling Tian, a disciple from the Black Turtle Sanctum, have disregarded our Fire Worship Sect's rule and killed both Yuan Hong and Yuan Kuang from the Vermilion Bird Sanctum. Do you admit to your crime?" When Wu Yi reached the end of his sentence, his eyes narrowed as a terrifying aura began to surge out of his body.

    The aura that was oppressive swept out like the tempestuous storm toward Duan Ling Tian.

    If it was any other ordinary people, they would have been petrified by Wu Yi's aura.

    However, Duan Ling Tian remained unmoved like a mountain. It seemed like he was not affected by it at all.

    Upon seeing this, a hint of shock appeared in the depths of Wu Yi's eyes.

    Duan Ling Tian looked at Qing Yan and said in a neither hurried nor slow pace, "Elder Wu Yi, if I'm not mistaken, whether I admit to my crime or not, it's not your place to decide what to do with me right? I'm not a Vermilion Bird Sanctum's disciple after all."

    There was a rule in the Fire Worship Sect's Four Symbols Sanctums that stated that when a disciple from whichever Sanctum had committed a crime, only the Enforcement Elder of that particular Sanctum was allowed to deal with it.

    The Enforcement Elders of the other Sanctums could only deal with the disciples from their respective Sanctums and had no authority to deal with disciples from the other three Sanctums.

    For this reason, even if Duan Ling Tian came to the Vermilion Bird Sanctum to kill somebody and broke the Fire Worship Sect's rule. The person who had the right to judge him was the Enforcement Elder from the Black Turtle Sanctum.

    "You know the rules well!" Upon hearing Duan Ling Tian's words, Wu Yi snorted coldly before adding on, "Before I came here, I've already sent another Silver Flame Elder from our Vermilion Bird Sanctum to invite your Black Turtle Sanctum's Enforcement Elder. Elder Guo Xiong will be here soon."

    "Alright." Duan Ling Tian nodded his head nonchalantly.

    Duan Ling Tian shocked everyone, including Wu Yi, when he turned around and returned to Yuan Hong's Secundus house and closed the door behind him.

    Duan Ling Tian's voice suddenly rang in the air. "Elder Wu Yi, please let me know when Elder Guo Xiong arrives!"

    The instant Duan Ling Tian's words left his mouth, it stunned the Vermilion Bird Sanctum's disciples present on the scene.

    Was he not being too unyielding?

    The Vermilion Bird Sanctum's Enforcement Elder Wu Yi, on the other hand, was so enraged that his fat face began to twitch uncontrollably. His pair of small eyes shone coldly.

    If looks could kill, Duan Ling Tian would have died many times over.

    "Junior Brother Ling Tian..." It could be said that Gu Li knew Duan Ling Tian quite well. However, when he saw Duan Ling Tian's stubborn attitude, he felt as though Duan Ling Tian was a stranger to him. He really did not know what he was thinking.

    Naturally, unlike all the other Vermilion Bird Sanctum's disciples, Gu Li knew Duan Ling Tian was not seeking death.

    In his opinion, since Junior Brother Ling Tian dared act this way, he must have felt confident he could deal with the matter. However, Gu Li did not know where he got his confidence from.

    Meanwhile, when the Black Turtle Sanctum's Enforcement Elder Guo Xiong was making his way to the Vermilion Bird Sanctum after receiving news of what happened, the Black Turtle Sanctum's First Silver Flame Elder Li An had also received the news as well and made his way to the Vermilion Bird Sanctum as well. His expression was extremely grave.
