"My goodness! What kind of enmity that Lin Dong, the strongest powerhouse on the Heaven Ranking from the Southern Ridge Yuan Mansion's Lin Clan, has with Master Duan? To think that he wants a Death Duel with Master Duan!"
"Previously, when he issued the challenge to Master Duan, he did not state it would be a Death Duel. Now that he stated it, I think Master Duan would change his mind if he's not confident, right?"
"It's ridiculous that he wants this to be a Death Duel!"
When the people in the capital of Windfall Nation regained their senses, they all began to discuss among themselves.
Many people began to worry if Duan Ling Tian would still accept the challenge after learning the battle tomorrow would be a Death Duel.
A Death Duel was a battle between life and death! It was not something to be taken lightly!
One only had one life. It would be the end once one died!
One would not issue a Death Duel if there was no enmity.
Soon after, the discussion in the capital of Windfall Nation began to change again.
"Death Duel… I wonder if Master Duan will still partic.i.p.ate in the battle tomorrow with Lin Dong when he learns about this…"
"I definitely won't partic.i.p.ate if I'm Master Duan. Since that person dares to issue a Death Duel, it's obvious he's confident, and he's harboring ill-intention. Isn't this just jumping into the hole that person has dug?"
"Although Master Duan is powerful, I'm afraid he's slightly lacking compared to Lin Dong… After all, Lin Dong is the strongest powerhouse on the Heaven Ranking. He's even known as the strongest person among all the powerhouses below the Saint Stage in Southern Ridge Yuan Mansion's district! In the Southern Ridge Yuan Mansion, n.o.body below the Saint Stage is a match for him at all!"
More and more people felt that Duan Ling Tian would get cold feet and run away after learning his opponent wanted a Death Duel.
"Death Duel?" The first person who learned about this in the Situ Clan was Situ Hao.
"What enmity does Lin Dong have with Master Duan to the extent that he wants a Death Duel? It's obvious he just wants to kill Master Duan!" Situ Hao's expression turned a little grave.
He had felt deeply remorseful when he saw how willing Duan Ling Tian was to leave the Situ Clan. Now that he learned the battle between Lin Dong and Duan Ling Tian was going to be a Death Duel, he began to feel worried for Duan Ling Tian's safety. A Death Duel was not a joke after all!
Situ Hao's eyes flashed as he made his way to the great courtyard where his son, Situ Hang, lived.
Although Duan Ling Tian had already announced his departure from the Situ Clan and vacated the position of Interim Advisor, he had no plans of physically leaving the clan before he left Windfall Nation.
Situ Hao came here to look for Duan Ling Tian. When he saw him, he asked without beating around the bush, "Master Duan, do you know Lin Dong from the Southern Ridge Yuan Mansion before this?"
"No, I don't." Duan Ling Tian shook his head. "I've only heard about him after I came to Windfall Nation. I know he's the strongest person on the Heaven Ranking, and he's a lineal disciple of the Southern Ridge Yuan Mansion's Lin Clan. Moreover, he's also widely acknowledged as the strongest powerhouse below the Saint Stage by the people of Southern Ridge Yuan Mansion. Clan Leader Situ, why do you ask?" Duan Ling Tian was puzzled.
"T-This is weird." Upon hearing Duan Ling Tian's words and seeing the confused expression on his face, Situ Hao was baffled.
"Father, what's going on?" Situ Hang asked.
Situ Hao looked at Duan Ling Tian as he said, "King Qian's estate just released news that the battle tomorrow between Master Duan and Lin Dong will be a Death Duel!"
Situ Hang's expression turned grave immediately. "Lin Dong wants to kill Master Duan?!"
The Death Duel was a battle between life and death!
Once both of them start the battle, none of them was allowed to stop until one of them died.
"Death Duel?" Upon hearing Situ Hao's words, Duan Ling Tian's eyes narrowed immediately as his eyes shone coldly.
This news shocked him as well.
"Since you don't know Lin Dong, there's only one possibility left — Someone from King Qian's estate wants to kill you or King Qian himself wants to kill you!" As the Clan Leader of Situ Clan, Situ Hao was, naturally, quick-witted. He quickly discovered this point.
"But why does King Qian wants you dead?" However, Situ Hao was baffled by this.
Situ Hang had a perplexed expression on his face as well.
Duan Ling Tian remained calm as though he was not baffled by this matter at all.
Naturally, it was not difficult for him to guess King Qian's motive. King Qian had to be aiming for the Devilseal Tablet in his possession. 'He didn't spare any effort and actually invited the strongest person on the Heaven Ranking from the Southern Ridge Yuan Mansion to kill me just for the sake of the Devilseal Tablet… It seems like King Qian is really determined.'
"I know why." At this moment, a familiar voice resonated from outside. Along with the voice, Situ Hou, the Supreme Elder of Situ Clan, appeared and walked into the courtyard.
"Grandpa Hou, you know why King Qian wants to kill Master Duan?" Situ Hang's eyes lit up immediately.
Situ Hao and Duan Ling Tian instantly shifted their attention to Situ Hou.
Situ Hao had a curious expression on his face.
On the other hand, Duan Ling Tian frowned. He was stunned. 'Don't tell me the news about the Devilseal Tablet being in my possession has been leaked that even the Supreme Elder of the clan knows about it?"
However, the moment Situ Hou opened his mouth, Duan Ling Tian discovered he had been thinking too much.
However, he did not expect there would be something so coincidental in this world.
According to Situ Hou, the reason King Qian wanted to kill him was to repay the debt he had owed a servant who had saved his life many years ago.
That servant had long left King Qian's estate and formed a group of bandit by the southern frontier of Windfall Nation. As the leader, he led a life of leisure.
However, just half a year ago, his third brother was killed by a mysterious powerhouse.
He had brought the mysterious powerhouse's portrait from thousands and thousands of miles away to the capital of Windfall Nation to claim the promise King Qian had given him many years ago. King Qian had promised him a favor as long as it was within his power to do so.
The servant had asked King Qian to kill the mysterious powerhouse in the portrait, and the man in the portrait happened to be Duan Ling Tian.
"It's him." When Situ Hou finished recounting what he knew, Duan Ling Tian finally recalled the encounter when he first arrived in Windfall Nation.
At that time, the third chief of the bandits wanted to kill him after he blackmailed a village. However, he was killed by Duan Ling Tian in the end.
At that time, he did not bother destroying the evidence. The group of bandit's strength was equivalent to the strength of an eighth-rate force, they would not pose a threat to him at all even if they attacked him with all of their might.
'I can't believe the great chief of the bandits has some connection to the Fourth Prince of Windfall Nation's Imperial Family,' Duan Ling Tian mused to himself, 'Looks like I shouldn't look down on people in the future.'
"I see." Upon hearing Situ Hou's words, Situ Hao and Situ Hang finally understood.
