4468 Zhong Yue
Tan Xiu Teng’s eyes burned with battle intent as he flew out of the flying ship. He was excited to fight the bandits to improve himself, after all. Previously, when he went to the Three Great Sacred Realms, he had spent a fortune to hire powerhouses to protect him.
In the area between the Three Great Sacred Realms and the Peaceful Might Realms, flying ships could be seen flying back and forth, and these flying ships mostly belonged to powerful forces or powerful cultivators in the area. There were also flying ships that ferried people from the Divine Sand Realm to the Three Great Sacred Realms, and under normal circumstances, there were about thirty to a hundred passengers on board this flying ship. In the past when Tan Xiu Teng went to the Three Great Sacred Realms, he had shared the flying ship with about forty other people. Whenever they encountered bandits, the powerhouses on board would either chase them away or kill them.
‘I don’t have to worry about my opponents being stronger than I am… If I’m no match for them, young master and Deputy Commander Hu will help me!’
Due to Duan Ling Tian and Hu Fei Yan’s presence, Tan Xiu Teng was able to fight without any worries. After all, the duo was close to becoming a peerless top advanced Supreme God and were very powerful.
‘There are only four of them?’ Tan Xiu Teng raised an eyebrow when he saw the people who stopped them.
The group consisted of two young men, a young woman, and a disheveled middle-aged man. The two young men and the young woman stood shoulder to shoulder in front while the middle-aged man stood at the back, slightly bowing.
Tan Xiu Teng’s eyes narrowed slightly when he saw the word ‘Yuan’ that was embroidered in the middle of the middle-aged man’s robe. He found the middle-aged man’s robe slightly familiar, and it did not take long before he recalled that a group of bandits that he previously killed wore the same robes as well. The leader of the group of bandits was rather strong, and before the leader died, he said threateningly to him, “You’ll regret it if you kill me!”
At that time, Tan Xiu Teng had ignored the other party’s threat and killed the other party. He had grown numb to this kind of threat. After all, he had received similar threats during his time in the Divine Sand Realm, and most of them proved to be just empty threats in the end.
‘Are they here to avenge that person’s death?’ Tan Xiu Teng wondered inwardly as he narrowed his eyes. Previously, when he had killed the leader of the bandit, he had heard a slight commotion in the forest nearby. At that time, he assumed it was a demon beast or a passing cultivator who was scared away by his Divine Energy. At this time, based on the current situation, it seemed like the person from that time was the disheveled middle-aged man.
As expected, the disheveled middle-aged man glared at Tan Xiu Teng and said, “My lord, he’s the one who killed my leader! He’s only slightly stronger than my leader, but he was much faster. That’s how my Yuan Organization was annihilated by him!”
With this, Tan Xiu Teng learned that the group of bandits he killed previously was known as the Yuan Organization. Moreover, based on the middle-aged man’s words, it was clear the other three people were not from the Yuan Organization.
At this time, a young man dressed in a white robe with golden trimmings stepped forward. He looked at Tan Xiu Teng condescendingly and asked, “So you’re the one who killed my junior brother, Zhang Yuan?”
Tan Xiu Teng had never heard the name ‘Zhang Yuan’ before, but he knew that it was likely the leader of the Yuan Organization whom he had previously killed.
‘I didn’t hold back at all when I killed that group of bandits… This young man said he’s Zhang Yuan’s senior brother, and it’s clear that he’s here to avenge Zhang Yuan. Since he dares to look for me, he’s likely stronger than I am…’ Tan Xiu Teng thought to himself as he sighed inwardly. He did not expect to encounter someone stronger than him before they even arrived in the Three Great Sacred Realms. Following that, he did not hesitate to inform Duan Ling Tian about what happened.
At this time, Duan Ling Tian was still chatting with Hu Fei Yan, unaware of what was going on outside until he received Tan Xiu Teng’s message. He raised an eyebrow and smiled before he said, “Tan Xiu Teng said that he might not be a match for those people outside…”
“How does he know he’s not a match for them when they haven’t fought yet?” Hu Fei Yan asked with a slight frown on her face.
“Let’s go and have a look,” Duan Ling Tian said as he rose to his feet, “We need to stretch our limbs anyway.”
The duo flew out of the flying ship that was hovering in midair and landed next to Tan Xiu Teng.
After Hu Fei Yan put her flying ship away, a young man dressed in a green robe laughed and said, “Zhong Yue, he’s not alone so don’t be embarrassed to ask for help from us. Miss Linghu and I are here to help you after all.”
‘Miss Linghu’ was naturally the young woman standing next to the green-clad young man. Her appearance was ordinary, and her expression was extremely cold.
Hu Fei Yan’s eyes lit up with excitement upon hearing this name. She stared at the white-clad young man and asked, “Zhong Yue? The Young Master of Mount Tai’s Zhong clan in the Peaceful Might Realm?”
Duan Ling Tian was slightly taken aback by Hu Fei Yan’s reaction. When he returned to his senses, he thought, “Hu Fei Yan seems to know him, and she seems eager to fight him. She really lives up to her reputation as the Deputy Commander of the Colossal Heaven Army.’
