In next to no time, the Yin Clan higher-ups had gathered together.
The Yin Clan’s Patriarch, Yin Zheng, had an extremely gloomy expression. "I presume all of you know the cause and effect of the matter… I’ve called everyone together mainly because of this matter, to seek the opinion of everyone and seek justice for Zhe!"
The Zhe that Yin Zheng spoke of was precisely Yin Zhe.
His own son, and his most outstanding son.
"Patriarch, Duan Ling Tian is simply too audacious for daring to make a move against Young Master Zhe! I suggest that we head to the Dragon and Phoenix Academy and demand him right now!" A curly bearded man was filled with righteous indignation as he spoke in a sonorous voice.
"Exactly! A surviving trash of the Seven Star Sword Sect actually dares to provoke our Yin Clan? He’s simply courting death!" Many people agreed with the curly bearded man’s words.
"Grand Elder, what do you think?" Yin Zheng’s gaze descended onto the old man below him, and he spoke slightly respectfully.
The old man had his eyes closed all along, and he only slowly opened his pair of muddy eyes when he heard Yin Zheng. "It’s best for our Yin Clan to wait and see in this matter!"
"Wait and see?" Many people shook their heads and had unwilling expressions. "Grand Elder, could it be that we should just let this matter go? Young Master Zhe was the future hope of our Yin Clan. Now that Young Master Zhe is crippled, if our Yin Clan doesn’t take any actions, other would think that our Yin Clan is afraid of Duan Ling Tian!"
"Yeah, Grand Elder, the Yin Clan’s dignity prevails over everything else!" For a time, the Yin Clan’s Audience Hall went into an uproar.
"Dignity prevails over everything else?" The old man slowly lifted his head, and his pair of muddy eyes abruptly flashed with a strand of bright light. "Are you sure the rise and fall of the clan is inferior to that illusory dignity?"
The clan’s rise and fall?
The old man’s words caused most of the people present to be puzzled. "Grand Elder, what do you mean by this?"
Of course, there were also many people that understood the meaning in the old man’s words.
"Grand Elder, you’re afraid of Duan Ling Tian’s natural talent?" Yin Zheng took a deep breath before asking.
The old man nodded and said slowly, "I’ve just obtained news that Duan Ling Tian is not only a first level Void Prying Stage martial artist, but has even comprehended Half-step Advanced Lightning Force! All of you ought to know what this means…"
As soon as the old man finished speaking, the expressions of all the Yin Clan higher-ups, including Yin Zheng, became gloomy.
They’d heard of Duan Ling Tian stepping into the first level of the Void Prying Stage, so they weren’t surprised.
"Half-step Advanced Lightning Force?" Yin Zheng felt his heartbeat suddenly quicken. "Grand Elder, is what you said true?"
"This matter is something that grandson of mine used his monthly chance to leave the academy and notify me of." The old man had a serious expression.
Instantly, the others no longer doubted it.
Even though the natural talent of the Grand Elder’s grandson was inferior to the Patriarch’s son, Yin Zhe, it wasn’t bad, and he was one of the Yin Clan disciples that were recommended into the Dragon and Phoenix Academy this time.
"Not yet 25 years of age, but possesses a cultivation at the first level of the Void Prying Stage and Half-step Advanced Force… I originally thought that surviving trash of the Seven Star Sword Sect only had monstrous natural talent, but I never imagined that his comprehension ability was so monstrous as well!"
The words of many Yin Clan higher-ups were filled with fear.
"Grand Elder, could it be that we can only swallow the humiliation silently?" There were also some Yin Clan higher-ups that were exceedingly unwilling.
"Could it be that all of you have any brilliant ideas?" The old man asked indifferently, causing the former to be at a loss of what to say.
The old man continued. "Duan Ling Tian is a surviving trash of the Seven Star Sword Sect, and is a person that the Azure Forest Tri-Sect wishes for nothing more than to get rid of and celebrate after… Do all of you think that the Azure Forest Tri-Sect will sit idly by once they know that Duan Ling Tian has appeared?"
The old man’s words caused the gazes of the Yin Clan higher-ups to light up.
"The strength of the Azure Forest Tri-Sect far surpasses our Yin Clan! If the Azure Forest Tri-Sect is helpless against Duan Ling Tian, then do all of you think our Yin Clan can do anything to that Duan Ling Tian? Instead of taking a risk and offending a great enemy in the future, isn’t it better to watch the tigers battle from the top of a mountain?"
The old man’s words obtained the approval of everyone.
"Patriarch, I’m afraid there are already people who have spread the news of Duan Ling Tian’s appearance to the Azure Forest Tri-Sect… But the person passing the message probably still doesn’t know that Duan Ling Tian has comprehended Half-step Advanced Lightning Force." The old man looked at Yin Zheng, and a strand of cold light flashed within his muddy eyes. "Patriarch, send someone to notify the Azure Forest Tri-Sect of the matter of Duan Ling Tian having comprehended Half-step Advanced Lightning Force!"
"Grand Elder is wise!" Yin Zheng’s eyes lit up when he heard this, as he’d guessed the old man’s intentions.
"Grand Elder is wise!" All the Yin Clan higher-ups reacted to it and all their faces revealed evil smiles.
If the Azure Forest Tri-Sect found out that Duan Ling Tian, who was a potential threat, had not only broken through to the first level of the Void Prying Stage, but had even comprehended Half-step Advanced Lightning Force, they would probably want to get rid of Duan Ling Tian desperately…
They didn’t doubt this in the slightest!
In next to no time, an enormous eagle soared into the sky from within the Yin Clan Estate, and it carried along a person as it transformed into a bolt of lightning that headed out of the Imperial City.
Based on its speed, this eagle was obviously a demon beast.
The Azure Forest Tri-Sect was a combination of the former Origin Convergence Sect, Demonic Lotusblade Sect, and Snow Moon Sect.
Whereas the Snow Moon Sect’s location was the closest to the Imperial City.
The location of the former Snow Moon Sect was situated at the north of the Azure Forest Imperial Kingdom and it was a world of ice and snow, where snow gleamed white all year round.
Today, this world of ice and snow had an unexpected guest.
A black figure flashed past the horizon, and it was exceptionally conspicuous in this world of ice and snow.
Before long, the black figure stopped and revealed its true form.
It was a flying beast with an appearance of an eagle.
The reason this demon beast had stopped was because a figure had appeared ahead and obstructed its path.
Slight terror appeared in the sharp eyes of the demon beast when facing the middle aged scholar with graceful bearing before it.
"Who’s trespassing into the Branch Sect of my Azure Forest Tri-Sect?" The middle aged man wore a silk headdress and held a feathered fan, and he had a calm expression, yet slightly cold lights flickered deep within his eyes.
"Greetings, Sect Leader Xue!" Meanwhile, the middle aged man that sat on the demon beast swiftly stood up and respectfully bowed to the middle aged scholar.
"Who’re you?" The middle aged scholar was precisely the former Snow Moon Sect’s Leader, Xue Rui, and was also one of the three great Sect Leaders of the Azure Forest Tri-Sect as of now.
As a higher-up of the Yin Clan, the middle aged man had once seen Xue Rui, so he recognized Xue Rui.
"Sect Leader Xue, I’m a member of the Azure Forest Imperial Kingdom’s Imperial City’s Yin Clan. I’ve come here under the orders of the Patriarch to pass information to Sect Leader Xue." The middle aged man spoke respectfully to Xue Rui.
"Yin Clan? The Yin Clan whose reserves and resources are sufficient to compare with a first-rate sect?" Xue Rui’s brows raised as he asked indifferently.
"Exactly." The middle aged man nodded.
"Speak, what is it?" Xue Rui didn’t take the Yin Clan seriously.
As far as he was concerned, a clan that was comparable to a first-rate sect would have two weak Void Initiation Stage martial artists in the clan, and it was difficult for them to be thought highly of.
Not to mention comparing with the current Azure Forest Tri-Sect, even if it was the former Snow Moon Sect, it still wasn’t something the Yin Clan could compare to.
"Sect Leader Xue, the Patriarch asked me to tell you… The surviving trash of the Seven Star Sword Sect that your Azure Forest Tri-Sect wishes for nothing more than to get rid of and celebrate after, has already appeared in the Imperial City’s Dragon and Phoenix Academy!" said the middle aged man.
Seven Star Sword Sect surviving trash?
At the beginning, Xue Rui didn’t react to what these words meant, but after a short moment, his face went grim. "You’re talking about Duan Ling Tian?"
Obviously, Xue Rui still didn’t know of the news that Duan Ling Tian had appeared.
"Exactly!" The middle aged man nodded hurriedly.
"Duan Ling Tian… I never expected that you really dared leave the Crimson Sky Kingdom!" Xue Rui’s eyes contained cold lights that were piercingly cold, and his mood surged.
The day, his personal disciple, Liu Yue, had learned of news about Duan Ling Tian, and he’d originally thought that with three Guardian Elder’s making a move, that Duan Ling Tian would die for sure.
Unexpectedly, only two of their Azure Forest Tri-Sect Guardian Elders had returned.
Only at that time did he know that the tiny Crimson Sky Kingdom actually possessed a mysterious expert with extremely terrifying strength concealed within it.
That mysterious expert didn’t even show himself before directly killing one of their Guardian Elders.
Even in the entire Azure Forest Tri-Sect, the strength of that Guardian Elder was a top rate existence, an expert at the sixth level of the Void Initiation Stage.
Since that time, he knew that it was impossible for them to kill Duan Ling Tian in the Crimson Sky Kingdom.
They could only wait for Duan Ling Tian to come out himself!
They were always waiting for a chance.
Whereas now, this chance seemed to have arrived already…
"Sect Leader Xue." The member of the Yin Clan continued. "Duan Ling Tian has already stepped into the first level of the Void Prying Stage, and not only that, he…" But, he hadn’t finished speaking when he was interrupted.
"What?! You said he has already broken through to the Void Prying Stage?" Xue Rui’s face became gloomy, and the imposing manner on his body was like a rainbow as it shot into the sky and swept out into the surroundings.
Instantly, that member of the Yin Clan and the demon beast that carried over started shivering, and it was even to the extent they were in danger of losing strength at any moment and dropping to their deaths.
"Sect… Sect Leader Xue, I… I haven’t finished." The Yin Clan member struggled to speak.
Finally, Xue Rui’s imposing manner was restrained by him.
Whereas the Yin Clan member and that demon beast seemed as if they’d lost all strength.
When they caught their breath, the demon beast flapped its wings and retreat over ten meters.
"Speak." Cold lights flickered in Xue Rui’s eyes and his voice was exceedingly cold and indifferent.
The matter of Duan Ling Tian breaking through to the Void Prying Stage had caused him to be extremely shocked, and he felt as if he was facing a formidable enemy.
Duan Ling Tian seemed to not even be 25 years old this year, right?
"Sect Leader Xue, not only has Duan Ling Tian’s cultivation broken through to the Void Prying Stage, he has even comprehended Half-step Advanced Lightning Force!" As soon as he finished speaking, the member of the Yin Clan urged the demon beast to fly off. "Sect Leader Xue, I’ll be taking my leave!"
Xue Rui didn’t pay any attention to the member of the Yin Clan, he stood in the sky and his body unconsciously trembled.
"First level Void Prying Stage, Half-step Advanced Lightning Force?" A strand of coldness emerged within Xue Rui’s heart. "If Duan Ling Tian doesn’t die… Then my Azure Forest Tri-Sect will surely die in the future! No matter what price must be paid, we must get rid of Duan Ling Tian to prevent any future troubles."
Xue Rui’s figure flashed, transforming in a white colored stream that instantly left the original location of the Snow Moon Sect.
He wanted to tell this matter to the other two Sect Leaders of the Azure Forest Tri-Sect!
This matter was related to the rise and fall of the Azure Forest Tri-Sect!
