After ascending Dubhe Peak, Duan Ling Tian bid his farewells to Shi Lan and Hu Li before walking toward the stone platform where the chain bridge that led to Megrez Peak was situated.
Even though it wasn’t the first time Duan Ling Tian walked on this chain bridge, shock still couldn’t help but arise within his heart…
Standing on the chain bridge and gazing at the mountains near the Seven Star Sword Sect, he felt as if all the mountains within his view were small.
After walking past the chain bridge, Duan Ling Tian stepped onto Megrez Peak.
"Hmm?" Duan Ling Tian had only just stepped onto the Megrez Peak’s stone platform when he noticed a fierce gaze flashing over from afar to descend onto him.
Duan Ling Tian raised his head to look over.
A figure walked slowly towards him.
This was a middle-aged man who had arrogance mixed between his brows and a very lofty appearance.
"It’s him!" Duan Ling Tian frowned. He had an impression of this middle-aged man.
Yesterday, he met this person briefly at this very place.
At that time, this person was with the Megrez Peak’s outer court elder, Zhao Lin.
This middle-aged man seems to be a Megrez peak outer court elder as well. Wasn’t he called Zhao Lin?
In next to no time, Duan Ling Tian noticed that this Zhao Lin had directly walked over to stand before him.
He noticed that there were actually traces of a burning, flowing light vaguely mixed deep within Zhao Lin’s gaze, and within these burning flowing lights, a trace of greed was revealed…
Duan Ling Tian heart jerked.
This Zhao Lin obviously was plotting something!
Even though he didn’t know now what objective this Zhao Lin had, he still became vigilant subconsciously.
"Duan Ling Tian?" As Zhao Lin stood in front of Duan Ling Tian, his arrogant gaze descended onto him, and his voice had a sense of a condescending tone as if one of high position was talking to one of low position.
Needless to say, Zhao Lin’s tone was extremely displeasing to Duan Ling Tian.
Duan Ling Tian calmly crossed eyes with Zhao Lin, then asked indifferently, "Elder Zhao Lin, is there something you’re looking for me for?"
"Hmm?" Zhao Lin noticed Duan Ling Tian’s current attitude and frowned.
An outer court disciple had actually used such a casual tone to talk with him?
But when he thought of his objective, Zhao Lin suppressed the displeasure in his heart and said to Duan Ling Tian, "Follow me!"
After he finished speaking, Zhao Lin turned around to walk towards a remote area on Megrez Peak.
Zhao Lin’s words were more like ordering Duan Ling Tian.
Duan Ling Tian calmly looked at Zhao Lin walking off, but he didn’t follow, as doubt arose within his heart. "This Zhao Lin, when I met him yesterday, he only glanced at me, then he regarded me as beneath his notice… Today, why’d he suddenly become so interested in me? He wouldn’t be…"
Recalling how his skin was as smooth as jade and more delicate than a woman’s, Duan Ling Tian felt a burst of disgust in his heart.
This Zhao Lin wouldn’t have that sort of hobby, right?
Thinking up to this point, Duan Ling Tian naturally wouldn’t follow him.
"Hmm?" In next to no time, Zhao Lin noticed that Duan Ling Tian wasn’t following him. When he turned around and saw Duan Ling Tian still standing on the spot, his face became incomparably gloomy.
This outer court disciple actually dared disobey his orders?
A burst of rage arose within Zhao Lin’s heart.
Within Megrez Peak, there has never been an outer court disciple that dared disobey his orders!
Zhao Lin took a deep breath and suppressed his rage, then he slowly walked over before looking at Duan Ling Tian. "I asked you to follow me earlier… Did you not hear me? Hard of hearing?"
Thinking of how Duan Ling Tian might have the thing he wanted, or perhaps knew where the thing he wanted was, he gave Duan Ling Tian sufficient patience.
"Elder Zhao Ling, if you have anything to say, then say it here. I’ll absolutely not follow you!" Duan Ling Tian frowned and didn’t beat around the bush as he spoke out with a sense of justice to Zhao Lin.
Zhao Lin’s face went grim as he shouted in a low voice, "Presumptuous!"
Along with Zhao Lin’s shout, many Megrez Peak outer court disciples gathered over, and their curious gazes descended onto Duan Ling Tian.
"Who’s this pretty boy? Actually daring to infuriate Elder Zhao Lin."
"Elder Zhao Lin is famous for his bad temper within our Megrez peak. This pretty boy is simply courting death by daring to offend him!"
"Looks like there’s a good show to see today."
The crowd of Megrez Peak disciples that had gathered over craved nothing more than chaos.
Zhao Lin’s face sank when he saw many people gathered in the surroundings, and a trace of worry flashed within his eyes as he shouted in a low voice, "What’re all of you gathering over here for? Go away!"
Duan Ling Tian clearly saw the worry that flashed within Zhao Lin’s eyes.
Instantly, his heart jerked.
Could it really have been guessed correctly by him?
This Megrez Peak outer court elder, Zhao Lin, actually had that sort of hobby?
For a moment, Duan Ling Tian felt a chill up his spine, and he secretly cursed in his heart. "F**K! Looks like I really have to bathe under the sun… My body that’s been reborn after consuming the 10,000 Year Stalactite Milk has actually attracted the greed of this Zhao Lin! This Zhao Lin looks normal, but I never imagined that he would have that sort of hobby."
After confirming that Zhao Lin was plotting against him, Duan Ling Tian naturally wouldn’t allow the surrounding Megrez Peak disciples to leave. "Elder Zhao Lin, there’s nothing that cannot be exposed between us. Why do you want them to leave?"
What Duan Ling Tian said caused that crowd of Megrez Peak disciples who planned to leave due to Zhao Lin’s power and influence to stop moving.
"What does he mean by this?"
"I don’t know."
The surrounding Megrez Peak disciples looked at Duan Ling Tian and then at Zhao Lin with faces full of bewilderment.
"What? I need you to teach me how to do things?" Zhao Lin’s face sank when he heard Duan Ling Tian questioning his decision, and he flew into a rage.
"Elder Zhao Lin, I naturally don’t dare teach you how to do things… But right here today, I want to make something clear. I, even though my skin is slightly whiter, absolutely don’t have such hobbies… So, Elder Zhao Lin, you should give up on this, as I won’t follow you!" As Duan Ling Tian spoke, he rubbed his hands together in absolute terror, then looked at Zhao Lin with a face full of disgust.
As far as he was concerned, so long as he shed light towards Zhao Lin’s true colors, Zhao Lin would give up on any intention of coveting him.
Duan Ling Tian’s words were like a stone that gave rise to a thousand ripples, causing the surrounding Megrez Peak disciples to be dumbstruck.
The gazes with which the Megrez Peak disciples used to gaze at Zhao Lin became incomparably strange.
"This… So this Elder Zhao Lin has that sort of hobby!"
"I really never noticed before this. Looks like the reason why he got infuriated with this pretty boy earlier was because this pretty boy refused him."
"This pretty boy is really misfortunate. His skin is whiter and more delicate, but his other aspects are filled with manliness… But just because of this, he actually encountered the coveting of Elder Zhao Lin."
"All of you, don’t speak about it anymore, I feel disgusted just thinking about it."
The crowd of Megrez Peak disciples could now be considered to have completely ‘understood.’
Their gazes towards Duan Ling Tian were filled with pity…
It looked like having skin that was too white wasn’t a good thing, as when you encounter people from a special group, like Elder Zhao Lin, there was still a certain level of danger.
"Brother, I feel sorry for you." A Megrez Peak disciple that stood near Duan Ling Tian looked at Duan Ling Tian as he shook his head and sighed.
"Brother, why don’t you obey Elder Zhao Lin… Elder Zhao Lin is an elder of our Megrez Peak. If you follow him, won’t you be able to be unhindered within Megrez Peak?" Another Megrez Peak disciple winked at Duan Ling Tian.
"I’ll leave such an opportunity to you." Duan Ling Tian rolled his eyes at that Megrez Peak disciple, as he didn’t have such hobbies.
What Duan Ling Tian said, and the jokes of the surrounding Megrez Peak disciples, entered Zhao Lin’s ears and eyes, and it also allowed him to understand what had happened…
This Duan Ling Tian actually thought he had such hobbies?!
Further looking at the weird gazes shot at him from the Megrez Peak disciples, for a moment, Zhao Lin was angered to the point that his face was livid.
He’d been in the Seven Star Sword Sect for so many years, but when had he ever greatly lost face like this?
"What nonsense are all of you talking?!" Zhao Lin’s face sank, and his sonorous voice that contained an awe-inspiring coldness mixed within sounded out.
Instantly, everyone present shut their mouths.
But their gazes upon Zhao Lin were still so strange, so detested, and so disgusted…
Now, they naturally thought that Zhao Lin had gotten angry from embarrassment.
"Elder Zhao Lin…" Duan Ling Tian looked at Zhao Lin and shook his head. "Actually, I can understand you having such hobbies… Really. Although I don’t have such hobbies, in my hometown, there are many people similar to you… However, they wouldn’t take it as a disgrace, and most of us don’t look down upon them because of this."
The hometown that Duan Ling Tian spoke of now was naturally the Earth from his previous lifetime.
On Earth, homosexuality wasn’t a rare thing…
Although Duan Ling Tian didn’t agree with it, he wouldn’t look down upon them, as everyone had the right to choose how they lived, and others had no right to interfere.
"What? Elder Zhao Lin, you don’t believe me?" Duan Ling Tian noticed that Zhao Lin still looked angrily at him. It looked like Zhao Lin wished for nothing more than to pull out his tendons and peel his skin, and he hurriedly added, "Elder Zhao Lin, what I’m saying is the truth… Actually, you don’t have to be embarrassed. I can understand, I really can understand… I believe that these Senior Brothers and Junior Brothers and able to understand as well, right?" As Duan Ling Tian spoke, he looked towards the crowd of Megrez Peak disciples.
These Megrez Peak disciples were originally terrified in their hearts when they noticed Zhao Lin getting enraged, but now that they heard what Duan Ling Tian said, they instantly took hold of the opportunity.
"Exactly, Elder Zhao Ling, you don’t have to feel embarrassed, we can understand… We can understand it."
"Actually, it isn’t a big deal, isn’t it only liking men and not liking women…? Elder Zhao Lin, don’t worry, we will surely support you."
The crowd of Megrez Peak disciples all consoled Zhao Lin one by one.
"Elder Zhao Lin." Duan Ling Tian withstood Zhao Lin’s ghastly gaze as he braced himself and said, "Look, listen… So many brothers weren’t really surprised when they found out you had such hobbies, as everyone understands you and support you."
"You… You all…" Zhao Lin’s face flushed red as if someone was choking him by the neck, and his eyes sprang wide open as he pointed at Duan Ling Tian and the surrounding Megrez Peak disciples.
