Chapter 2798: Forbearance And The Martial Dragon Celestial Sect’s Plan?
‘Why is the Eight Diagrams Celestial Duke of the Martial Dragon Celestial Sect looking at me with so much hostility? Isn’t this our first meeting?’ Duan Ling Tian was confused when he saw Teng Yun Shan’s cold and murderous gaze. However, in just a short moment, the killing intent and pressure he felt from Teng Yun Shan disappeared. He inwardly sighed in relief. Teng Yun Shan was an Eight Diagrams Celestial Duke after all. How could he bear the pressure and killing intent of an Eight Diagrams Celestial Duke when he was just a Great Overarching Golden Celestial?
At the same time, Bai Ping, the Sect Leader of the Tai Yi Celestial, and Tie Tai He, the Left Guardian of the Tai Yi Celestial Sect, straightened their backs after they respectfully bowed and greeted Teng Yun Shan. They were unaware of the killing intent in Teng Yun Shan’s eyes when he looked at Duan Ling Tian earlier. Although they could tell Teng Yun Shan’s tone was slightly cold, they just a.s.sumed that was the way Teng Yun Shan spoke. Therefore, they did not dwell on it.
On the other hand, Duan Ling Tian was still confused by Teng Yun Shan’s killing intent. ‘Why is Teng Yun Shan, the strongest person in the Martial Dragon Celestial Sect, so hostile toward me even though it’s our first meeting? I don’t think I’ve offended him. Did he confuse me for someone else?’
Although Teng Yun Shan had quickly retracted the killing intent in his eyes, Duan Ling Tian felt suffocated as though a huge mountain was pressing down on his chest when Teng Yun Shan glared at him and exerted pressure.
At this moment, Teng Yun Shan’s expression and eyes had returned to normal. However, inwardly, he thought to himself, ‘Qing’er, my child, I didn’t know about your existence in the past so I failed to fulfill my responsibilities as a father. It’s my fault… However, I promise to kill Duan Ling Tian, Tie Tai He, and that troublesome woman to avenge you!’
Both Duan Ling Tian or Tie Tai He would never expect that Teng Qing, the elder from the Martial Dragon Celestial Sect, whom Tie Tai He had killed, was the biological son of Teng Yun Shan!
Tie Tai He seemed unaware of Teng Yun Shan’s hostility, but it did not escape Duan Ling Tian’s notice. Even then, Duan Ling Tian would never be able to guess that the reason Teng Yun Shan was so hostile to him and Tie Tai He was due to Tie Tai He killing Teng Qing.
If Tie Tai He had known that Teng Qing was Teng Yun Shan’s biological son, he would not have dared to kill Teng Qing no matter what. However, who could blame him for being unaware of this fact? Even Teng Yun Shan had just recently learned that Teng Qing was his biological son a few days ago!
About 5,000 years ago, Teng Yun Shan had relations with a maid who was serving him in the Martial Dragon Celestial Sect. When the maid became pregnant, she was too afraid to tell him about it. After all, with his status, Teng Yun Shan would become a laughingstock in the Wasteland if it were made known that he and a maid had an illegitimate child! Additionally, Teng Yun Shan had a wife who was easily jealous. If his wife had known that Teng Yun Shan had an illegitimate child, she would not have stayed idle and let the matter slide. Thus, the maid left the Martial Dragon Celestial Sect and secretly gave birth to a son.
Teng Qing inherited Teng Yun Shan’s talent. When he grew up, he quickly rose to prominence and joined the Martial Dragon Celestial Sect under his mother’s instructions. He continued to rise in ranks until he became an elder in the sect. He was privy to a lot of matters in the sect so he knew that the former sect leader was not really dead and was secretly guarding the sect. However, he was completely unaware that the old ancestor and patron of the sect was his biological father even until the moment he died.
A few days ago, after Teng Qing’s mother learned that Teng Qing had died, she fell into despair. She did everything she could to get in touch with Teng Yun Shan to tell him about Teng Qing. She had committed suicide to prove her words were true.
However, as the Old Ancestor of the Martial Dragon Celestial Sect, Teng Yun Shan, naturally, would not easily believe her words. Only after he had secretly investigated the matter did he find out that Teng Qing was indeed his son! In the early years, he had married the daughter of a high-ranking official of the sect. However, his wife was unable to bear him children and stopped him from remarrying. Therefore, he did not have any children. He was not in a hurry to have children so he did not mind his wife stopping him from remarrying. After all, he still had a long life in this world. However, when he learned that he had a biological son, and his son had been killed, he was furious!
Teng Yun Shan looked at the three people from the Tai Yi Celestial Sect one last time before he said, “Let’s go!” He turned around and left with the two people who had come with him. He left as soon as he had arrived.
Duan Ling Tian, Bai Ping, and Tie Tai He looked at each other in shock and confusion when they saw Teng Yun Shan’s sudden departure.
“Did something suddenly happen so he had to leave?”
“What did he come here for anyway?”
Bai Ping and Tie Tai He voiced out their confusion before they looked at Duan Ling Tian.
Bai Ping asked, “Master Duan, I’m guessing that Teng Yun Shan came because of you… Did he send you a Voice Transmission to ask you to join the Martial Dragon Celestial Sect just now? If I’m not mistaken, you must have refused him, right?” In his opinion, that must be the reason why Teng Yun Shan had come and left so suddenly.
Tie Tai He looked at Duan Ling Tian, he shared the same opinion as Bai Ping.
“No,” Duan Ling Tian shook his head and said, “We didn’t communicate at all. He didn’t send me any Voice Transmission.”
“Didn’t communicate at all?”
Bai Ping and Tie Tai He looked at each other in confusion when they heard Duan Ling Tian’s reply. If that was the case, what was the reason for Teng Yun Shan’s visit?
“Did he come to see our patriarch?” Tie Tai He guessed.
“Impossible!” Bai Ping shook his head. “If he’s here to see the patriarch, he would’ve gone directly to the patriarch. Eight Trigrams Celestial Dukes can easily communicate through the Communication Celestial Talismans.”
“Then, why did he come here? To see us? Perhaps, to see Master Duan?” Tie Tai He grew more and more confused.
“That’s possible… After all, a Great Overarching Golden Celestial and a prominent Celestial Alchemist who’s younger than 100 years old is unheard of in the Wasteland.” Bai Ping nodded.
At this moment, Duan Ling Tian, who had fallen deep in thought as he stared at the direction where Teng Yun Shan had left, looked at Bai Ping and Tie Tai He before he asked, “Sect Leader, Guardian Tie… Teng Yun Shan, the Eight Trigrams Celestial Duke of the Martial Dragon Celestial Sect, and Teng Qing, the elder whom Guardian Tie killed, have the same surname… Are they related?” This thought occurred to him because when Teng Yun Shan had turned around earlier, his side profile looked familiar to Duan Ling Tian. After thinking about it for a moment, he discovered Teng Yun Shan’s side profile was similar to Teng Ting, the elder of the Martial Dragon Celestial Sect, whom Tie Tai He had killed.
“Master Duan, why would you ask this?” Bai Ping and Tie Tai He were taken aback and confused. They did not understand why Duan Ling Tian would ask such a seemingly random question.
“Apart from having the same surname, I find their side profiles resemble each other,” Duan Ling Tian replied honestly. If Teng Qing and Teng Yun Shan were related, it would explain Teng Yun Shan’s hostility toward him and Tie Tai He. After all, Tie Tai He had killed Teng Qing because of him.
“Master Duan, you’re overthinking things.” Tie Tai He shook his head. “It’s impossible for them to be related. If they were, I wouldn’t have killed Teng Qing that day! After all, not only is Teng Yun Shan the Old Ancestor of the Martial Dragon Celestial Sect, but he’s an Eight Trigrams Celestial Duke as well!”
“That’s right.” Bai Ping nodded in agreement. “Moreover, if Teng Qing and Teng Yun Shan were related, we would’ve known about it… If Teng Qing was really related to Teng Yun Shan, Teng Yun Shan wouldn’t have just left after taking a look. He would definitely pursue the matter. He’s infamous for his short temper.”
“Maybe it’s a coincidence, then.” Duan Ling Tian nodded. He felt that Bai Ping and Tie Tai He’s words made sense.
Meanwhile, outside the Tai Yi Celestial Sect’s estate.
“Old ancestor, we thank you for your forbearance on behalf of the sect!” The two men who had followed Teng Yun Shan here bowed and thanked him. It was clear they knew bits and pieces of the truth.
Teng Yun Shan calmly replied, “There’s no need to thank me… I’m a member of the Martial Dragon Celestial Sect as well. Moreover, I’m the former sect leader. Although I want to avenge my son badly, I’ll never risk the sect and act hastily for the sake of revenge.”
“Old ancestor, rest a.s.sured. When our plans come to fruition, you’ll be able to kill Duan Ling Tian and Tie Tai He!” One of the two men promised Teng Yun Shan.
“They’re not the only ones I want to kill, I want to kill that white-clad siren who’s the cause of this incident as well!” Teng Yun Shan said as the killing intent in his eyes intensified.
