"Not shouting?" Duan Ling Tian’s voice was cold and indifferent as if it came from the depths of hell. A terrifying killing intent swept out of his body and enveloped that female student.
Instantly, the female student felt as if she was within a horrifying battlefield and dread arose from the bottom of her heart before she hurriedly said, "I’ll shout, I’ll shout…"
"You dare!" Tong Li’s face went gloomy, as she’d never expected this bootlicker to actually dare shout it, and she raised her hand before swinging a slap at the female student.
Just at this moment, the black whip within Duan Ling Tian’s hand swung out and directly descended onto Tong Li’s arm.
Accompanied by Tong Li’s shrill cry, she retracted her arm, which now had a pitch black bruise on it…
"You…You…" Tong Li stared angrily at Duan Ling Tian, but even though she had a belly full of harsh words to say in her heart, she just didn’t dare say it. With the two previous lessons, she became clear of Duan Ling Tian’s temper and knew that if she were to dare say anything harsh, this Duan Ling Tian would surely raise his hand at her.
For the sake of avoiding the pain of the flesh and body, Tong Li chose to endure!
She’d slowly seek revenge for all this from Duan Ling Tian in the future.
"Tong Li’s a bi**h!"
"Tong Li’s a bi**h!"
Meanwhile, the female student that was kneeling on the ground opened her mouth and started shouting over and over again.
After hearing the female student shout the same thing repeatedly f20 or 30 times, he was bored to the point that he started yawning. He looked at the refined female student beside him and lightly smiled. "What’s your name?"
The refined female student’s face blushed like an apple as she lowered her head and said, in a low voice, "I’m Tang Guo."
"Tang Guo? This name rather suits you… Hmm, I’m going to class, so help me look after her. If she doesn’t finish shouting a 100 times like I instructed, or if this Tong Li dares to try any tricks, you can come to the grade 1 Star Mastermind Department classroom to look for me." Duan Ling Tian passed the black whip in his hand to Tang Gui and lightly smiled to her once more before leaving. 
Tang Guo was slightly excited in her heart as she watched Duan Ling Tian’s figure disappear in the distance.
"Tong Li’s a bi**h!"
"Tong Li’s a bi**h!"
The voice that entered her ears caused Tong Li’s face to be extremely unsightly as she coldly shouted, "He’s already gone, what’re you still shouting for?"
Instantly, the voice of the female student that was kneeling on the ground stopped abruptly and she fearfully glanced at Tong Li. "Miss Li, I didn’t mean to earlier…truly…that Duan Ling Tian is too terrifying…I…"
"What you mean is that he’s terrifying and I’m not?" Tong Li’s face sank as she interrupted the female student, then a fierce light flickered within her eyes.
The female student who was kneeling on the ground didn’t even have the time to explain herself when she heard Tang Guo say, with a flushed face, "You’ve only shouted 41 times; there’s still another 59 times… Hurry up."
The body of the female student that was kneeling on the floor trembled. Only now did she realize that although Duan Ling Tian was gone, he had still left behind a representative. And as she recalled the threats Duan Ling Tian made earlier, she exhaled a deep breath of cold air before continuing to shout.
"Tong Li’s a bi**h!"
"Tong Li’s a bi**h!"
Tong Li’s face went grim as she stared angrily at Tang Guo. "Little B*tch, do you not want to live anymore?"
Tang Guo gritted her teeth and her timid gaze slowly became firm. "If you have an objection, you can go look for Duan Ling Tian… He asked me to keep watch here, and since I’ve promised him, then I’ll surely see to it properly."
"You…You…" Tong Li extended her hand to point at Tang Guo’s nose. She was angered to the point that her body started trembling, and she wished for nothing more than to strangle this woman to death, but when she recalled what Duan Ling Tian said earlier, she still endured it in the end.
"Humph!" Tong Li snorted coldly before turning to leave, and as she left, she didn’t forget to threaten Tang Guo. "You’re Tang Guo, right? I’ll remember you."
Tang Guo gritted her teeth. When she recalled the words that the youth left behind earlier, her wavering gaze became firm once again…
As far as she was concerned, since Duan Ling Tian was so confident in her, she couldn’t let Duan Ling Tian be disappointed.
What happened in the morning was only a small incident to Duan Ling Tian, and Tang Guo was only a passing guest within his life.
After a regular day passed, he, Xiao Xun, and Xiao Yu walked out of Paladin Academy together at dusk.
Right at this moment, a carriage driver opened the curtain of a carriage that was stopped outside of Paladin Academy, and a person walked out of it …
"Hmm?" Duan Ling Tian frowned when he recognized the person.
It was precisely the Duan Clan’s fourth master, Duan Ru Hong.
Duan Ling Tian didn’t have any good impression of Duan Ru Hong. He still remembered that when Duan Ling Xing desired to kill him in Fresh Breeze Town’s Li Clan that day, this Duan Ru Hong only snapped at Duan Ling Xing once and took no further action.
Duan Ru Hong seemed to notice Duan Ling Tian’s hostile gaze and a bitter smile appeared on the corners of his mouth before he said, "Can you come with me for a short chat?"
"You two head home first," Duan Ling Tian said to Xiao Yu and Xiao Xun, before getting into the carriage.
Within the carriage, Duan Ling Tian and Duan Ru Hong sat facing each other as Duan Ling Tian indifferently said, "Be frank if you have something to say… If you’re thinking of persuading me to return to the clan again, then please keep your opinion to yourself. I, Duan Ling Tian, will not lightly change my decision on something I’ve already decided on."
When he first saw Duan Ru Hong earlier, he’d already guessed Duan Ru Hong’s objective. He was surely here because Duan Ling Tian had revealed a strength that others mistook for being at the Origin Core Stage yesterday morning. The Duan Clan wanted to ask him to return to the clan and acknowledge his ancestors again…
After all, an 18-year-old Origin Core martial artist was a unique existence even in the entire Crimson Sky Kingdom!
"Let me finish before you decide." Duan Ru Hong laughed bitterly.
"Speak." Duan Ling Tian was slightly impatient as he spoke.
Duan Ru Hong took a deep breath as he slowly said, "It’s like this…The Grand Elder, who is also the previous Patriarch of our Duan Clan, has spoken that as long as you’re willing to return to the clan, acknowledge your ancestors, and admit yourself to be a Duan Clan disciple, then our Duan Clan will satisfy any conditions of yours as long as they’re within the Duan Clan’s ability."
Duan Ling Tian frowned.
Able to agree to any of his conditions?
However, Duan Ling Tian understood that there was no such thing as a free lunch in this world. "Since the Duan Clan is willing to give so much, I presume the Duan Clan wants something, right? I wonder what does the Duan Clan want from me?"
Duan Ru Hong glanced deeply at Duan Ling Tian. He suddenly felt that the youth before him was much more astute than his third brother, Duan Ru Feng. "The Duan Clan does indeed have a request, and the objective is a Void Advancement Pill!"
Void Advancement Pill?
Duan Ling Tian’s pupils constricted, as he, who had merged memories with Rebirth Martial Emperor, naturally knew what a Void Advancement Pill was.
Void Advancement Pill, a grade 5 medicinal pill, able to assist a Half-step Void Stage martial artist bring about the Six-Nine Lightning Tribulation within a short amount of time. After the martial artist finishes withstanding the tribulation, he will step into the Void Prying Stage.
Ordinarily speaking, a Void Advancement Pill was something only consumed by those martial artists whose natural talent made it difficult for them to break through to the Void Prying Stage. This is because once one consumes a Void Advancement Pill and forcefully brings about the Six-Nine Lightning Tribulation, it will leave behind an extremely serious side effect.
A martial artist that forcefully broke through to the Void Prying Stage with a Void Advancement Pill would be able to at most cultivate to the ninth level of the Void Prying Stage within their lifetime, and they would be unable to make any further break through… It can be said that once one consumes a Void Advancement Pill, it could be considered as destroying their own future!
At the very least, Duan Ling Tian would rather die than consume a Void Advancement Pill.
However, to the group of Half-step Void Stage martial artists within the Crimson Sky Kingdom, if they didn’t have a Void Advancement Pill, then it would be impossible for 90% or more of them to break through to the Void Prying Stage.
So the Void Advancement Pill was they only choice, and they definitely paid no regard to the side effects the Void Advancement Pill brought about.
"Even if it’s only the ninth level of the Void Prying Stage…It’s still sufficient to act without a care within the Crimson Sky Kingdom! Even that Void Prying Stage powerhouse within the Imperial Family probably hasn’t reached the ninth level of the Void Prying Stage," Duan Ling Tian thought inwardly.
Duan Ru Hong was shocked in his heart when he noticed Duan Ling Tian pondering.
Could it be that this kid knows what a Void Advancement Pill is?
After all, even though the Void Advancement Pill couldn’t be considered to be a secret, it wasn’t something that just anyone would know of.
"Void Advancement Pill…The Duan Clan really planned well!" Duan Ling Tian sneered. "However, why does the Duan Clan think I can bring a Void Advancement Pill to them?"
Duan Ru Hong’s heart trembled. This kid really knew of the Void Advancement Pill. "According to the Grand Elder’s intention, it’s to ask you to enter one of the top sects within the Azure Forest Imperial Kingdom. With your natural talent, you'd surely be regarded highly by the higher-ups of those top sects… At that time, it wouldn’t be difficult for you to get a Void Advancement Pill for the Duan Clan."
"Enter a top sect within the Azure Forest Imperial Kingdom?" Duan Ling Tian’s gaze focused and a smile of ridicule appeared on the corners of his mouth.
Looks like the Duan Clan had already planned everything; no wonder they would use such generous terms to rope him in…
 Note - Her name Tang Guo in Chinese text is similarly pronounced as candy/sweets.
