Chapter 3325: The Grand Elder of the Dragon Clan
‘What should I do? I don’t have enough people on my side, and I don’t know when Senior Feng Qing Yang will receive Senior Meng Chuan’s message. Even if he received it, he might not help me. I can’t wait any longer. Huan’er’s mother is being tortured every once in a while; as a result, her father is suffering as well. Huan’er’s still waiting for me in the Saint Province Realm, and she’d told me not to take the risk if I’m not confident. Otherwise, she’d take her life. Must I disappoint her then?’
Duan Ling Tian inhaled deeply. He racked his brain for a solution. After 15 minutes, his eyes glinted like the stars in the night sky. “It seems like I’m only left with this choice!”
Following that, Duan Ling Tian hurriedly sent a message to Meng Chuan. “Senior, is it possible for you to stay near the Heavenly Pool Palace’s estate for a period of time? I hope you’ll be able to help me stall Palace Master You in half a year’s time.”
“I wouldn’t have asked this of you if I weren’t confident,” Duan Ling Tian replied.
“Alright. I won’t leave the Boundless Heaven for now, and I’ll wait for you near the Heavenly Pool Palace’s estate for half a year,” Meng Chuan responded without hesitation. This was because he thought it was likely that Feng Qing Yang would accept Duan Ling Tian as his direct disciple. After all, from what he knew, Feng Qing Yang did not leave many legacies in both the mundane realm and the Devata Realm. Apart from that, there was a chance that Duan Ling Tian was the successor that Feng Qing Yang had been searching for. If Duan Ling Tian was indeed the person Feng Qing Yang was looking for, it would be beneficial to have Duan Ling Tian owe him a favor. Moreover, he would not suffer any loss by agreeing to help Duan Ling Tian. After all, he knew You Feng Yu would not dare to kill him even if he was not a match for You Feng Yu. Even if the Heavenly Emperor of the Boundless Heaven was present, he still would not dare to recklessly kill him.
In the Ten Thousand Beasts Heaven.
The Ten Thousand Beasts Heaven was mostly inhabited by Celestial Beasts. The dragon clan and the Blood Dragon clan were both heaven-grade forces in the Ten Thousand Beasts Heaven.
The Blood Moon Ridge was also one of the heaven-grade forces in the Ten Thousand Beasts Heaven. It was located in a remote area in the Ten Thousand Beast Heaven where it was shrouded in a blood mist all year round. At night, the sky here was illuminated by a blood-red moon. From this, one could easily guess how the name came to be.
At this moment, a pretty golden-clad young woman with a mischievous glint in her eyes looked at a grey-clad old man and asked excitedly, “Elder Jiu, are you sure this information is true?”
“Little Gold, why are you doubting my words? Little girl, I’m in charge of the Blood Moon Ridge’s intelligence network; how’s it possible that my information is wrong?” The old man shook his head helplessly and said helplessly, “The information is 100% true. Everybody in the Jade Emperor Heaven’s Nan Dou Territory has heard of Duan Ling Tian. He’s always dressed in purple and very handsome. I even obtained a portrait of him. Take a look! Is he the person you’re looking for?”
The grey-clad old man raised his hand and handed a scroll to the golden-clad young woman.
The young man in the portrait was handsome and had an extraordinary bearing.
Although the portrait was crudely drawn, the golden-clad young woman recognized the person in the portrait immediately!
“I-it’s true… It’s Brother Ling Tian! It’s Brother Ling Tian! I finally found Brother Ling Tian! Little Black and Little White are really unreliable! In the end, I’m the one who found Brother Ling Tian.” The golden-clad young woman laughed happily.
Meanwhile, the old man only shook his head when he saw the young woman’s reaction. He did not understand why their Grand Elder was so fond of this crazy girl that he even adopted her as his foster daughter. Was it really just because they were both Jade-eyed Heavenly Mice?
On the other hand, after the young woman regained her senses, she hurriedly sent a message to her friends in the dragon clan. “Little Black! Little White! I have news of Brother Ling Tian!”
When a black-clad young man and a white-clad young woman in the dragon clan received the golden-clad young woman’s messages, they instantly left their respective cultivation ground to meet each other.
“Little Gold said she has news of Brother Ling Tian and told me to meet her at the Blood Moon Ridge.”
“I received the same message as well,” the cold and aloof black-clad young man replied. There was a hint of warmth of tenderness in his eyes when he looked at the white-clad young woman. After a moment, he said, “You should inform the Fourth Elder about this. She’ll understand since she knows of our relationship with Brother Ling Tian.”
The white-clad young woman nodded. She did not waste time and left in the direction of a mountain peak in a corner of the dragon clan’s estate.
After some time had passed, the black-clad young man was surprised when he saw the white-clad young woman returning with an extra person.
It was a beautiful woman dressed in a white robe. She was none other than Ji Ning Yun, the Fourth Elder of the dragon clan.
“Fourth Elder.” The black-clad young man bowed immediately when he saw the beautiful woman.
“Little Black, I heard that you’ve received news about your Brother Ling Tian… Are both of you prepared to meet him?” Ji Ning Yun asked with a faint smile on her face.
“Yes.” Little Black nodded.
“I have plenty of time on my hands recently… I’ll follow you and Little White if you don’t mind. I’d like to meet the human both of you think so highly of. I can treat this trip like a vacation as well…” Ji Ning Yun said with a smile.
Little White nodded and chimed in, “That’s right. Little Black, we won’t need to be afraid of encountering humans with bad intentions if Aunt Yun comes with us!” Although Ji Ning Yun was her master, she preferred to address Ji Ning Yun as Aunt Yun since it sounded more affectionate.
Little White and Little Black were Nine-clawed Divine Dragons. Every part of their bodies was valuable and had its own uses. If their identities were discovered, those with bad intentions might kill them.
Little Black nodded. He knew it was useless for him to refuse since Ji Ning Yun would not let them go alone because she was concerned about their safety.
“That old man hasn’t left the dragon clan in years as well. This is a good opportunity for us to take him out for a trip,” Ji Ning Yun said with a smile.
Little Black and Little White were taken aback when they heard these words. They, naturally, knew the ‘old man’ that Ji Ning Yun mentioned. He was the Grand Elder of the dragon clan. His strength was ranked in the top three among the 16 titled Celestial Emperors in the dragon clan.
Soon after, before Little Black and Little White regained their senses, a tall and muscular middle-aged man dressed in a dark golden long robe appeared next to Ji Ning Yun, seemingly out of thin air. His facial features were sharp, and he had a pair of thick eyebrows. Apart from that, he carried a dignified air about him. When he looked at Ji Ning Yun, a rare smile appeared on his face as he asked, “Ning Yun, what’s the matter?”
“Little White, Little Black, and their friend from the Blood Moon Ridge are going to the Jade Emperor Heaven. I’ll be joining them as well. Since you have time recently, why don’t you join us as well,” Ji Ning Yun said.
Ji Yu Nian, the Grand Elder of the dragon clan, was a rather famous figure in the Thousand Beasts Heaven.
“Grand Elder.” Little White and Little Black bowed in unison. The Grand Elder’s status in the Dragon Clan was comparable to the clan leader.
“Let’s go.” Ji Yu Nian nodded as he looked at Little Black and Little White. With a wave of his hand, Ji Ning Yun, Little White, Little Black, and he vanished into thin air. He had cast the law of space’s Teleportation Profundity. As it turned out, he had mastered the law of space, one of the Four Supreme Laws.
In the Blood Moon Ridge.
Little Gold was shocked when she saw Ji Yu Nian, the Grand Elder of the dragon clan. She said to Little Black and Little White through Voice Transmission, “Little Black, Little White, both of you are really amazing! The Grand Elder of the dragon clan even came just protect both of you!”
Little Black ignored Little Gold while Little While replied, “Little Gold, it’s Aunt Yun who invited the Grand Elder to join us.”
“The old man has been worrying about my safety. Now that the Grand Elder of the dragon clan is accompanying us, he must feel relieved!”
Little Gold laughed as she led the group of people to the Blood Moon Ridge’s Devata Realm Transportation Formation.
In just a moment, they arrived at the Jade Emperor Heaven’s Nan Dou Territory. They did not waste time and immediately made their way to the Thousand Tribulations Sword Sect.
“Based on the information, Brother Ling Tian has joined the Thousand Tribulations Sword Sect and became a disciple of the Gan Jiang Progeny,” Little Gold said when they arrived at the entrance of the Thousand Tribulations Sword Sect’s estate.
The Thousand Tribulations Sword Sect’s estate was heavily guarded. Ji Yu Nian did not barge in even though he was capable of doing so. It was impolite after all. Moreover, they were here for a friendly visit, not to start a war.
“This Thousand Tribulations Sword Sect is only a mere grade-one force but their Sect Guarding Formations are so powerful,” Little White said with a sigh.
“Little White, although the Thousand Tribulations Sword Sect is just a grade-one force, its strength is comparable to heaven-grade forces… In the past, they were a heaven-grade force,” Ji Ningyun explained with a smile, “The Sect Guarding Formations in the Thousand Tribulations Sword Sect is comparable to our Dragon Clan’s Sect Guarding Formations.”
“They used to be a heaven-grade force? That makes sense.” Little White nodded.
“Moreover, although they’re only a grade-one force now, it’s said that they have a Celestial Emperor who’s comparable to a titled Celestial Emperor… Apart from that, it’s also said that the combined strength of the leaders of the Gan Jiang Progeny and the Mo Xie Progeny is capable of killing ordinary titled Celestials.” Based on Ji Ning Yun’s explanation, it was clear she had some knowledge of the Thousand Tribulations Sword Sect.
