Now that Duan Ling Tian's cultivation base had risen to the Paramount Saint Rudiment Stage, his perception had gotten even sharper and keener.
He was certain these five men had been following them since they left the Situ Clan.
'Don't tell me they're five of the eighteen Shadow Guards from the Situ Clan?' When Duan Ling Tian recalled some of the things that he had heard while he was in the Situ Clan, he speculated inwardly.
During the time he was in the Situ Clan, he had vaguely overheard some secrets from the Situ Clan's lineal disciples. One of them was the Situ Clan's eighteen Shadow Guards.
It was said that the eighteen Shadow Guards of Situ Clan were mostly at the Imminent Saint Stage.
Perhaps, all of them could not be compared to the powerhouses on the Heaven Ranking. However, due to how well they had concealed themselves, even the powerhouses from the Heaven Ranking could not do anything to them. Moreover, if the powerhouses from the Heaven Ranking were careless, the eighteen Shadow Guards might be able to kill them as well. This was how terrifying the Shadow Guards were. They were all under the direct control of the Sect Leader.
Due to this reason, he thought these five men were Shadow Guards sent by Situ Hao, the Clan Leader of Situ Clan.
'The Clan Leader of Situ Clan really had put in a lot of thoughts and efforts into this. We don't need to worry about any sudden emergency during the journey with the Shadow Guards guarding us,' Duan Ling Tian thought to himself.
"However, Situ Clan's really terrifying. The Moon Illumination Sect is also a seventh-rate force, but it's far from being comparable to the Situ Clan." The number of Saint Stage powerhouses might be the same in both the Situ Clan and Moon Illumination Sect. However, the Moon Illumination Sect was clearly lacking in Imminent Saint Stage powerhouses in comparison to the Situ Clan.
In the Moon Illumination Sect, only the few Vice Sect Leaders were at the Imminent Saint Stage. However, in the Situ Clan, put aside those Imminent Saint Stage elders, most of the eighteen Shadow Guards were at the Imminent Saint Stage.
The Moon Illumination Sect could not compete with the Situ Clan at all in this regard.
Now that they had five Shadow Guards hiding in the dark to guard them, Duan Ling Tian, Situ Hang, and Situ Hou did not meet with any obstacles during their journey. They successfully arrived at the Drift Blaze Sect without any incidents.
The Drift Blaze Sect was similar to the Moon Illumination Sect, it was hidden in a range of mountains. However, the Drift Blaze Sect's estate was situated in between a group of dormant and active volcanoes so they seemed more outstanding compared to the Moon Illumination Sect.
During their journey, Duan Ling Tian had learned about the Drift Blaze Sect from Situ Hang. He found out that the Drift Blaze Sect was a seventh-rate force that was even more powerful than the Situ Clan. This was due to the Sect Leader of the sect.
The Sect Leader of Drift Blaze Sect was a female powerhouse called Zi Yun. She was so powerful that she was known as being invincible among the seventh-rate forces in Windfall Nation. Moreover, this was also publicly acknowledged by many Saint Stage powerhouses from various sects.
Even the Imperial Family avoided offending the Drift Blaze Sect due to Zi Yun. Moreover, rumor had it that very few people from the Imperial Family of Windfall Nation were able to defeat her.
Duan Ling Tian was stunned when he learned about how powerful Zi Yun, the Sect Leader of Drift Blaze Sect, was. It did not cross his mind that a female powerhouse would be able to rise to such a level in the vast Windfall Nation. It was really mind-boggling.
Moreover, he also learned that Lady Feng who was ranked 23rd on the Heaven Ranking and whom he had challenged was Zi Yun's direct disciple.
Duan Ling Tian could not help but muse to himself, "Like teacher like pupil!"
Duan Ling Tian knew with Lady Feng's potential, it was not impossible for her to surpa.s.s her master, Zi Yun, in the future if her cultivation progressed smoothly.
Duan Ling Tian was curious about Zi Yun, the Sect Leader of Drift Blaze Sect, after learning about her from Situ Hang. He was curious about what kind of woman she was to be able to lead a seventh-rate force into becoming a force that was acknowledged by everyone under the Windfall Nation's Imperial Family.
In the Dao Martial Saint Land, it was always the strong one who ruled.
Perhaps the Drift Blaze Sect could not even compare to other seventh-rate forces if it was not for Zi Yun. It was her existence that made the sect surpa.s.s the other seventh-rate forces.
In the Dao Martial Saint Land, it was not impossible for one person to hold up a sect all on their own if they were powerful enough.
When they arrived at the Drift Blaze Sect, a sect disciple welcomed and greeted them perfunctorily.
However, Duan Ling Tian noticed that after the Drift Blaze Sect's disciple who welcomed the three of them found out that he was the Interim Advisor of Situ Clan, Master Duan, there was a hint of pity in his eyes.
"It seems like they have full confidence in Lady Feng." It was not difficult for Duan Ling Tian to figure out what that look meant. He was very curious about what kind of woman Lady Feng was to have such extraordinary achievements in such a short time. At this moment, he could not wait to meet her. However, he learned from Situ Hang that he would have to wait until the day after tomorrow, the day of the battle, to see her. It was almost impossible for him to meet her before then.
This was not because Lady Feng was preparing for the duel, it was just that she was always in the sect's forbidden area. Even many of the inner and outer court disciples rarely saw her. Even the disciple who had seen her the most times in this past year had only seen her a few times.
All of this made Lady Feng seemed even more mysterious, causing Duan Ling Tian to feel even more curious.
Although the att.i.tude of the Drift Blaze Sect's disciples toward Duan Ling Tian and the others were not really good, they still arranged accommodations for them. It was a mansion located in the middle of a mountain among the dormant volcanoes in the outer court. The place was very clean. It was obvious the Drift Blaze Sect had made preparation beforehand.
"This place will be the residence for the three of you. Please have a good rest tonight… Early in the morning tomorrow, our grand elder will come to look for you," the Drift Blaze Sect's disciple said to Duan Ling Tian and the other two men before he left. It was as though he was unwilling to stay a second longer.
Duan Ling Tian exchanged glances with the other two before they shook their heads and chuckled. Then, all of them entered the mansion and found a room to stay in.
Meanwhile, at the dragon clan, Duan Ru Feng began to feel impatient.
Ever since Ku Mi revealed the truth of the matter, the five Five-clawed Divine Dragon elders from the dragon clan were clearly unhappy with Di Jue.
At this moment, Di Shan, the Clan Leader of the dragon clan, motioned to Duan Ru Feng and suggested a discussion to come up with a solution that would satisfy him.
Duan Ru Feng had waited the entire afternoon. If it was not for the fact that he was somewhat cautious of Di Shan, it would be impossible for Duan Ru Feng, the Mansion Master of Azure Cloud Mansion, to have waited this long.
However, a whole afternoon had gone by and Duan Ru Feng could no longer stand it. "All of you have discussed for an entire afternoon, and you still haven't come up with a solution?"
Duan Ru Feng's tone was filled with annoyance, causing Di Shan and the others to regain their senses.
Apart from Di Jue who was standing at the side, not partic.i.p.ating in the discussion, the five Five-clawed Divine Dragons with Xue Chan as the leader, transmitted their voices to Di Shan, the Clan Leader of the dragon clan, as they discussed how to solve this problem.
After all, it was indeed their dragon clan who was in the wrong.
Let alone the fact that the son of the Mansion Master of Azure Cloud Mansion might not have killed Di Jue's son, even if he did, he was helping their dragon clan to get rid of its scourge.
Just imagining the danger of a Five-clawed Devil Dragon terrified the five Five-clawed Divine Dragons, including Xue Chan.
They believed if news of this spread to the clansmen in the dragon clan, Di Jue would definitely become a target. As for the Mansion Master of Azure Cloud Mansion, although he was rude when he trespa.s.sed into the dragon clan by force, none of the clansmen would blame him for it if they found out about this. In their opinion, he was innocent. Moreover, he might even be the father of their benefactor.
Although the dragons clan was very prideful, they were still a clan that knew how to feel grateful. They were not ingrates nor were they treacherous. They would remember it for life if somebody had helped them.
As the Clan Leader of the dragon clan, Di Shan had a say in many things, and he did not have to consider the feelings of the other clansmen or the few Five-clawed Divine Dragons. However, he was wrong in the matter regarding Di Jue. After all, he had long known Di Jue's son was still alive before he was killed.
In the end, he even helped Di Jue and ordered his clansmen who were scattered all over the Dao Martial Saint Land to search for Duan Ling Tian with all their might.
Due to this reason, Di Jue knew he could not ignore the opinions of this few Five-clawed Divine Dragons regarding this matter.
However, during the entire course of the discussion, Di Shan had stood firmly by his decision. Di Jue must not die!
Di Jue was not only a Five-clawed Divine Dragon, but he was also a Five-clawed Golden Dragon as well! He was to become the next Clan Leader of the dragon clan.
If he died, the dragon clan would lose their successor.
In the dragon clan, all of the candidates for the Clan Leader's position were Five-clawed Golden Dragons. This was also a law the clan had abided by since ancient times.
If a clansman was not a Five-clawed Golden Dragon, it was impossible for him to become the Clan Leader no matter how outstanding he was.
The Five-clawed Golden Dragon represented the dragon clan, it was irreplaceable by other Five-clawed Divine Dragons.
"Mansion Master Duan," Di San said in a deep voice as he looked at Duan Ru Feng, "Our dragon clan will compensate you regarding this matter."
"It's good that you're willing to compensate me…. Tell me, what do you plan to do? Should I bring him away from your sight and kill him or should I just kill him in front of all of you?" Duan Ru Feng asked as he looked at Di Shan indifferently.
Upon hearing Duan Ru Feng's words, horror dawned on Di Jue's face immediately. He quickly turned to look at Di Shan anxiously. He was really afraid Di Shan would forsake him.
The proverb, 'Concern is disorderly' undoubtedly described Di Jue's current situation.
At this moment, Di Jue seemed to have forgotten he was the only Five-clawed Golden Dragon apart from Di Shan, the Clan Leader of the dragon clan. No matter how many mistakes he made, it was impossible for the clan to forsake the legacy of the dragon clan and kill him.
