2380 Back at the Fire Worship Sect Again

    "So this means they won't kill me for no reason even if they're stronger than me?" Duan Ling Tian's eyes were glinting coldly at this moment. He had come to consult with Chen Yi Ru about this matter since he was not familiar with the dragon clan.

    The person who had gone to the Fire Worship Sect had a servant who was a Three Tribulation Bodiless Celestial at least. It was possible that the mysterious young man was a Six or Seven Tribulation Bodiless Celestial! If Duan Ling Tian unleashed all his strength and techniques, he might be able to take on a Six Tribulation Bodiless Celestial. However, this would not be the case if that person was a Seven Tribulation Bodiless Celestial.

    Although Duan Ling Tian was worried about Gan Ru Yan, he was not so reckless as to charge in uninformed.

    Chen Yi Ru seemed confident as he said, "If they can't guarantee that word will not spread after they kill you, they won't take the risk and harm you!"

    "If that's the case, let's return to the Fire Worship Sect! I'd like to see where this man got his courage from to disregard the agreement between the dragon clan and Senior Feng Qing Yang," Duan Ling Tian said in a low voice.

    Duan Ling Tian did not waste any time and left the Seven Absolutes Sect's temporary estate without informing anyone. After listening to Chen Yi Ru's words, he was certain he was not in any danger. Moreover, he did not think it would take long before he returned. Therefore, he did not think there was a need to make a fuss about this matter.

    Although the northern region was quite a distance away from the Fire Worship Sect that was located in the western region, with Duan Ling Tian and Chen Yi Ru's speed, it only took them half a day to arrive in the western region.

    Two rapidly-moving figures shot across the sky above the Fire Worship Sect's estate. They were moving so fast that even the strongest powerhouse in the Fire Worship Sect, Zi Feng, would not have been able to see them clearly. These two figures were, naturally, Duan Ling Tian and his follower, Chen Yi Ru, who was following closely behind him.


    Duan Ling Tian flew into the Fire Worship Sect's Saint Land and rose up into the sky until he arrived in front of a floating island that was located at the highest point.


    After a short moment, Chen Yi Ru arrived as well and stood behind Duan Ling Tian respectfully.

    "People from the dragon clan! I, Duan Ling Tian, am here!" Duan Ling Tian said at this moment. His voice rang out through the Fire Worship Sect's estate.

    The elders and disciples from the Fire Worship Sect were, naturally, shocked and baffled when they heard Duan Ling Tian's words.

    "Duan Ling Tian!"

    "It's Duan Ling Tian! H-he is back again?"

    "Didn't he leave a month ago? Why did he return again so quickly?"

    "He just mentioned something about the dragon clan... What dragon clan? Did someone from the dragon clan come to the Fire Worship Sect?"

    On the other hand, the high-ranking officials from the Fire Worship Sect who had witnessed their sect leader's follower who was at the Ninth Form of the Saint Celestial Stage being killed with just a palm strike were pleasantly surprised, albeit a little confused.

    "Dragon clan? Did Duan Ling Tian say those two are from the dragon clan?"

    "I don't remember them saying anything about where they're from when they arrived. They only said they're here for Duan Ling Tian. Who knew they would be from the dragon clan?"

    "The dragon clan has Bodiless Celestials! Even a Three Tribulation Bodiless Celestial is only a servant in the clan!"

    "That young man must have a high status in the dragon clan. Moreover, it's very likely that he's much stronger than his servant!"

    Most of the high-ranking officials were convinced that the young man was extremely strong. After all, just his servant alone was a Three Tribulation Bodiless Celestial at least!

    Duan Ling Tian was a good example of this. Duan Ling Tian was extremely strong. He was the successor of the Fog Rain Progeny and the Sect Leader of the Seven Absolutes Sect. He was so strong that he could even kill Li Bing, a Four Tribulation Bodiless Celestial, even though he was only an Eminent Celestial. His servant, Chen Yi Ru, was a Four Tribulation Bodiless Celestial.

    A Golden Flame Elder spoke up at this moment and made a guess. "Come to think of it, I remember the old ancestor said something about being from the dragon clan when he saw Guardian Ling Tian's terrifying strength! Did these people from the dragon clan come to avenge him?"

    When the others heard his words, they were split into two sides based on their opinions.

    "Tsk! The old ancestor was from our Fire Worship Sect, how could he join the dragon clan? If what you say is true, doesn't it mean that the old ancestor deserted the sect to join the dragon clan? How outrageous!"

    "It's possible though. After all, many of us heard the old ancestor saying he was with the dragon clan. With the powerhouses from the dragon clan here to avenge him, it seems like it's not outrageous to think he had deserted the Fire Worship Sect to join the dragon clan."

    None of them would have been able to imagine that their old ancestor did not technically desert the Fire Worship Sect even though he joined the dragon clan. After all, he was forced to join the dragon clan. Moreover, the Fire Worship Sect would not have risen to become one of the three great sects if it was not for the dragon and phoenix clans' help.

    "He's dead anyway. There's no point in arguing about it now. Let's just wait and see if Duan Ling Tian's able to deal with those two from the dragon clan!" Someone said.

    When the high-ranking officials heard this, they no longer harped on the matter. Instead, all of them began to make their way to where Duan Ling Tian was.

    "Duan Ling Tian is really here! Even his follower, Chen Yi Ru, is here."

    Some of the high-ranking officials' eyes brightened when they saw Duan Ling Tian. However, there were also some who looked at Duan Ling Tian gloomily since he had killed the old ancestor of their Fire Worship Sect!

    Based on the way they looked at Duan Ling Tian, it was not difficult to figure out who believed Li Bing had deserted the sect to join the dragon clan and who did not believe it.

    It did not take long before Gan Ru Yan, the Sect Leader of Fire Worship Sect, appeared as well. She did not inform Duan Ling Tian about this matter so she was, naturally, confused by his sudden appearance. "Why are you here?!"

    "Lord Sect Leader!" All the high-ranking officials in the Fire Worship Sect bowed and greeted Gan Ru Yan when she arrived. However, she did not pay them any attention. Her attention was solely focused on Duan Ling Tian as she looked at him with emotions swirling in her eyes.

    Before Duan Ling Tian could respond, a voice rang out from behind Gan Ru Yan. "I'm the one who informed Guardian Ling Tian about this matter."

    Gan Ru Yan whirled around to look at the person who had spoken. "M-master, it's... you? Why would you do that?" She could barely hold back her anger when she found out this was her master's doing. If it was someone else, she would have lost her temper.

    "I can't just stay idle and watch you die," Qing Huo replied.

    "You can't watch me die?" Gan Ru Yan smiled bitterly. "Master... Do you think I'll be able to live with myself if he dies because of me?"

    Qing Huo trembled when he heard Gan Ru Yan's words. Then, he sighed. "My girl... I'm wrong this time around." He did not expect his disciple to be so unyielding!

    Gan Ru Yan was about to persuade Duan Ling Tian to leave when a voice rang out in the distance.

    "So you're Duan Ling Tian?!" The person who had spoken appeared with a middle-aged man in tow.

    As soon as he appeared, everyone turned their attention to him. It seemed as though he had stolen the limelight from Duan Ling Tian.

    Duan Ling Tian looked at the handsome young man who was flying toward him. He did not respond to the young man's question. Instead, he asked, "So you're Li Bing's master?"

    When the high-ranking officials from the Fire Worship Sect heard this. Those who did not believe Li Bing had joined the dragon clan were in shock.

    "Li Bing's master?"

    They found this difficult to accept!

    When Duan Ling Tian finished speaking, the middle-aged man standing behind the young man said imperiously, "Impertinent! Duan Ling Tian, Lord Di Chen asked you a question! Not only did you ignore his question, but you even talked back at him! Do you think you're above everyone else just because you're the Sect Leader of the Seven Absolutes Sect? How dare you disregard Lord Di Chen!"

    "Di Chen?!" Many high-ranking officials' eyes widened in horror when they heard that middle-aged man's words. Based on their knowledge, in the entire Dao Martial Saint Land, only imperial golden dragons in the dragon clan had the surname Di. Was this handsome young man one of the imperial golden dragons?

    "You're the one who's being impertinent!" Chen Yi Ru who was standing behind Duan Ling Tian sneered and said, "You're just a mere Three Tribulation Bodiless Celestial, and yet, you dare to scream and shout at my master?"
