"Clan Leader Situ, make an announcement immediately that I, Duan Ling Tian, am officially leaving the Situ Clan and am no longer the Interim Advisor of the clan," Duan Ling Tian said to Situ Hao.
"Master Duan, you don't have to do this!" Situ Hang's face turned pale immediately. He did not expect Duan Ling Tian would make such a decision.
"Master Duan, from the point of view of the Clan Leader of Situ Clan, it would be better for you to leave the clan. However, as a father, there's no way I can ask you to leave the Situ Clan. You've saved my son's life after all," Situ Hao said as he looked at Duan Ling Tian solemnly.
Situ Hang was his only son!
"Master Duan, there's no reason for you to make such a decision rashly. Let's think of another way. Perhaps, there's a better way that would not require you to leave the clan." In the end, even Situ Hao asked Duan Ling Tian not to leave.
Upon hearing his words, Duan Ling Tian who had a solemn expression on his face finally smiled.
"Master Duan, you…" When Situ Hao and his son saw the smile on his face, they were confused. They did not know what his smile meant.
"Clan Leader Situ, it's rare for you to say such words," Duan Ling Tian replied, "As for my decision, it still remains the same. Naturally, my decision has nothing to do with you and Young Master Hang. From the beginning, I don't have any intention of staying long in Windfall Nation. It's just a matter of time before I leave. Although I'll leave the Situ Clan and no longer be its Interim Advisor, I still plan on staying in Windfall Nation. I'll only leave after a while."
Now that Feng Wu Dao and the others were settled in Windfall Nation, there was nothing he was worried about here.
What he needed to do was to find the force behind Xue Nai as soon as possible and find his fiancée, Li Fei.
It had been quite some time since he came to the capital of Windfall Nation, and he had gathered a lot of useful information. His first guess about the force behind Han Xue Nai was a force called the Greenwave Han Mansion.
He would make his way to the Greenwave Han Mansion next.
Upon hearing Duan Ling Tian's words, Situ Hao and Situ Hang agreed with him silently. They had long known Duan Ling Tian would leave eventually, but they did not think he would leave so soon.
"Master Duan, even if you want to leave, there's no need for you to leave our Situ Clan." Situ Hang insisted.
Looking at Situ Hao, Duan Ling Tian said with a smile, "Young Master Hang, I've already made up my mind. There's no need for you to persuade me." Based on his words, it seemed as though he was enlightened.
"However, when you make the announcement about my departure from the Situ Clan and vacating the position of Interim Advisor, I hope you'll make another announcement on my behalf, Clan Leader Situ. I, Duan Ling Tian, will accept the challenge from the strongest person on the Heaven Ranking from the Southern Ridge Yuan Mansion, Lin Dong, on my own. As for the date of the battle, he can decide as he likes." His words shocked Situ Hao and Situ Hang.
Master Duan wanted to accept the challenge from that powerhouse who came from the Southern Ridge Yuan Mansion? It was only natural that they were shocked.
Previously, they a.s.sumed Duan Ling Tian did not dare to accept the challenge when they heard his decision to leave the Situ Clan. However, this did not seem to be the case.
"Master Duan, are you confident?" Situ Hang asked, stunned.
"Would I accept the challenge if I'm not confident?" Duan Ling Tian smiled nonchalantly. Even the former him who had not cultivated for three months would not be afraid of the strongest powerhouse on the Heaven Ranking, let alone the current him.
"Master Duan, since you're confident, there's no need for you to leave the Situ Clan," Situ Hao said again.
"Sect Leader Situ, please just help me spread the news." Duan Ling Tian changed the topic. It was apparent he had no intention of changing his mind.
Seeing how determined Duan Ling Tian was, Situ Hao only sighed inwardly and no longer tried to persuade him. He knew it would be pointless even if he had continued persuading him. It was obvious Master Duan did not change his mind often.
In the capital of Windfall Nation, the hottest topic changed again. Another news spread out and caused the entire capital of Windfall Nation to seethe in excitement.
Situ Clan had announced the departure of their Interim Advisor Master Duan, and he was no longer a member of Situ Clan.
"Master Duan is leaving the Situ Clan?"
"It seems like he really wasn't in closed-door cultivation."
"Hurmph! I think he's afraid of the strongest person on the Heaving Ranking who came from the Southern Ridge Yuan Mansion, right?"
"Isn't that obvious? If he's not afraid, why would he make such a decision? Because of him, people have been saying that King Rong's estate is inferior to King Qian's estate."
"Now that Duan Ling Tian has left the Situ Clan, he no longer has anything to do with King Rong's estate. n.o.body will say King Rong's estate is inferior to King Qian's estate anymore."
"It seems like Duan Ling Tian really chose to hide for the past two months because he's afraid of the powerhouse from Southern Ridge Yuan Mansion… Ptuuui! To think that I idolized him previously and really thought he was in the midst of closed-door cultivation."
"You're too naive!"
The entire capital of Windfall Nation bustled with this kind of talks.
All of this was caused by the news of Duan Ling Tian leaving the Situ Clan. Almost everybody felt that Duan Ling Tian made such a decision because he did not dare to accept the challenge from the powerhouse who came from the Southern Ridge Yuan Mansion.
Even the people in King Qian's estate felt the same way as well.
"He really announced he's leaving the Situ Clan?" After learning about this, even King Qian was stunned. At the same time, he looked at the middle-aged man sitting at a lower seat who was breaking out in cold sweat. "Situ Ming, is this part of your plan?"
The middle-aged man was none other than Situ Ming, the Second Master of Situ Clan.
Just a few days ago, after King Qian told Ye Feng to leave this matter alone, he had found Situ Ming and asked him if he had any way to force Duan Ling Tian to accept the challenge. At that time, Situ Ming had solemnly pledged that he would be able to get Duan Ling Tian to accept the challenge. He was also the one who had been pulling strings in the dark and caused the change of topic in the capital of Windfall Nation in recent days.
His only purpose of doing this was to pressure King Rong's estate.
King Rong's estate cared about their image. It was only natural for them to pressure the Situ Clan. At that time, it would be impossible for Duan Ling Tian to refuse the challenge.
However, it did not cross his mind that after waiting for a few days, they would receive news about Duan Ling Tian's departure from the Situ Clan.
The outcome was completely opposite to what he had imagined.
Based on his opinion, Duan Ling Tian was an arrogant young man. Under such circ.u.mstances, he would not have refused the challenge. It seemed like he had a.s.sumed wrongly.
Ye Feng who was standing at the side looked at Situ Ming mockingly.
When the topic in the capital of Windfall Nation had changed, he could instantly guess Situ Ming's intention. He became very angry when he thought Situ Ming's idea would yield the desired result. However, now that Situ Ming's plan had failed, he was inwardly pleased.
'Who asked you to try taking credit for this? You finally know you can't just simply spout some ideas, right?'
"Situ Ming, don't you have anything to say for yourself?" When King Qian saw Situ Ming standing rooted to the ground, stunned, his expression turned even grimmer.
"Your Imperial Highness, King Qian, I didn't think things would..." Situ Ming smiled wryly after he took a deep breath. However, before he could finish his sentence, he was interrupted by a voice resonating from outside. "Fourth Imperial Highness, good news! Good news!"
A middle-aged man rushed into the hall immediately without waiting for permission.
"Do you not know the rules?" King Qian's originally grave expression turned even graver.
"Please forgive me, Fourth Imperial Highness! The news is really urgent! The Situ Clan has made another announcement. They announced that Duan Ling Tian would accept the challenge using his own name after he leaves the Situ Clan!" The middle-aged man answered quickly.
"What?!" The moment King Qian heard this, he was stunned. The glum expression on his face disappeared without a trace, and his eyes shone brightly like the stars in the sky.
"He has accepted the challenge?" After listening to the words of the middle-aged man who had rushed into the hall, Situ Ming's eyes also brightened immediately even though he was breaking out in cold sweat earlier. He had a pleasantly surprised expression on his face.
The news had come at just the right moment. Both King Qian and Situ Ming were delighted.
If there was anyone who was unhappy, it was Ye Feng.
'd.a.m.n it! Duan Ling Tian actually accepted the challenge. What has he been doing all this time?' Ye Feng's expression turned grave. However, n.o.body bothered to pay attention to the expression on his face at all.
"Hurry! Invite Master Lin here!" King Qian told the middle-aged man.
"Yes," the middle-aged man replied before he left.
Meanwhile, this news had also spread in the capital of Windfall Nation.
This news shocked the people even more than the news before this did.
"After announcing his departure from the Situ Clan, he's accepting the challenge by the strongest person on the Heaven Ranking from Southern Ridge Yuan Mansion using his own name?" Many people's eyes lit up as their faces had an expression of eagerness.
"Look! It's just as I expected, it's impossible for my idol to be afraid of battles!"
"I remember you insulting Master Duan this morning. Why are you changing your opinion so fast?"
"Ptuui! Don't slander me! I've done no such thing!"
"I'm very certain of what you've done. Do you dare to swear on the lightning penalty oath?"
Such discussions took place all over the capital of Windfall Nation.
Duan Ling Tian's name that had suffered a disastrous decline seemed to instantly rise to Heaven from h.e.l.l again. He was being praised everywhere in the capital of Windfall Nation.
On the other hand, Situ Clan was being cursed mercilessly.
"Ptuui! It must have been Situ Clan that forced Master Duan to leave… I really want to see their expressions if Master Duan wins the battle!"
"Situ Clan? Pttui! How ungrateful! Did they forget how Master Duan saved their Great Young Master who was on the brink of death?"
