After all, the group of bandit only had the strength of an eighth-rate force, it would not pose a threat to him even if there were 100 groups of bandits like them.
However, as it turned out, Duan Ling Tian happened to meet a group of bandit that had connections with King Qian.
This matter rendered him speechless. However, he did not regret his action at all.
He was certain this was not the main reason King Qian was targeting him. It was mainly because of the Devilseal Tablet.
'You want my Devilseal Tablet? Well then, we'll have to see whether you or that person whom you've invited here have that kind of ability to take it from me.' A hint of disdain flashed in the depth of Duan Ling Tian's eyes.
Naturally, Situ Hao, his son, and Situ Hou did not notice the hint of disdain in his eyes.
"Master Duan, it seems like King Qian really wants to kill you. Why don't you leave the capital of Windfall Nation for now?" Situ Hang said with a grave expression as he looked at Duan Ling Tian.
Duan Ling Tian was his life savior. Naturally, he did not wish for something to happen to Duan Ling Tian. Even if Duan Ling Tian was confident about his battle with Lin Dong tomorrow, he did not really think Duan Ling Tian would be able to defeat Lin Dong.
Lin Dong was the strongest person on the Heaven Ranking in the Southern Ridge Yuan Mansion's district after all!
The Heaven Ranking had existed for countless years in the Southern Ridge Yuan Mansion and was greatly valued.
"That's right, Master Duan!" Situ Hao said in a.s.sent, "It's obvious that King Qian is harboring ill-intention. At this moment, it's better if you decline the challenge. Six months ago, I heard that Lin Dong was just a step away from entering the Saint Stage. Although he might not be in the Saint Stage yet, he's definitely close to entering it."
"Master Duan, please leave," Situ Hou chimed in.
"There's no need for the three of you to persuade me." Although Duan Ling Tian was moved by their gestures, he still shook his head and rejected them. "Since they want a Death Duel, then we'll have a Death Duel! If I pull out of this battle, it'll undoubtedly leave an irremovable mark on my path of Martial Dao. It'll greatly impact my future in regards to Martial Dao. Due to this reason, I will not pull out of the battle. Since he wants to fight, I'll fight him! And if he wants a Death Duel, we'll have a Death Duel!"
At this moment, Duan Ling Tian's body exuded a strong battle intent. As his battle intent rose, it seemed as though it was capable of destroying any fortress!
Upon seeing this, Situ Hao, Situ Hang, and Situ Hou only exchanged glances. They could only smile wryly.
Although they were unwilling to see Duan Ling Tian seek death, the determination he had shown made them feel as though it would be difficult for them to change his mind. At this moment, they could only hope Duan Ling Tian would come out from the battle unharmed.
Time continued to pa.s.s.
In the afternoon, another news was released by King Qian's estate, confirming the venue and the time of the Death Duel between Lin Dong and Duan Ling Tian.
"Tomorrow noon at Northern Mang Mountain at the north of the capital!"
"Northern Mang Mountain!" Soon after, everyone in the capital of Windfall Nation received the news.
Many Martial Cultivators began to leave the capital to make their way to Northern Mang Mountain!
"Quick! Quick! Let's go and grab a good spot! We can't miss the battle tomorrow afternoon!"
"I've made up my mind to sleep at Northern Mang Mountain tonight! Otherwise, I'm afraid I won't be able to find a spot tomorrow."
The crowd that looked like a dark ma.s.s from afar made their way to Northern Mang Mountain. Northern Mang Mountain was destined to be filled with people tonight.
At King Qian's estate.
"He has been found?" The eyes of Ye Mu Bai, the servant who used to be under King Qian's command and the main chief of a group of bandit in the frontier of Windfall Nation, lit up immediately the moment he was informed that King Qian had already found the mysterious powerhouse who had killed his third brother.
"Duan Ling Tian? The former Interim Advisor of Situ Clan is going to have a Death Duel with Master Lin Dong?" His eyes narrowed immediately when he learned about the mysterious powerhouse's ident.i.ty.
Naturally, he did not remain oblivious while he stayed in King Qian's estate.
Duan Ling Tian was a young powerhouse whose fame had risen to the top of Windfall Nation a few months ago. This was because he had defeated Lady Feng from Drift Blaze Sect and replaced her on the Heaven Ranking. He became famous immediately.
Recently, he had also heard that Lin Dong, the strongest powerhouse on the Heaven Ranking, had come from the Southern Ridge Yuan Mansion to issue a challenge to Duan Ling Tian.
He had already planned to join in on the fun tomorrow. However, he did not think he would receive such news today. As it turned out, the mysterious powerhouse who had killed his third brother in the southern frontier of Windfall Nation was Duan Ling Tian.
'It's a good thing I came to look for the Fourth Imperial Highness. If I'm on my own, I'm definitely no match for Duan Ling Tian.' Ye Mu Bai counted himself lucky when he thought about this.
Although Duan Ling Tian had already announced his departure from the Situ Clan and had vacated his position as Interim Advisor, his strength alone was more than enough to crush Ye Mu Bai to death. He was not a match for Duan Ling Tian at all.
'And I was wondering why Master Lin Dong, the strongest powerhouse on the Heaven Ranking, would come from Southern Ridge Yuan Mansion to Windfall Nation just to challenge Duan Ling Tian who's ranked 23rd on the Heaven Ranking. It seems like the Fourth Imperial Highness had intentionally invited him here. Duan Ling Tian had saved the life of the Great Young Master of Situ Clan previously, it's not easy for the Fourth Imperial Highness to personally make a move,' Ye Mu Bai thought to himself, 'Due to this reason, the Fourth Imperial Highness must have invited Master Lin Dong over so he'll have a good reason to kill Duan Ling Tian!" He had also heard the news about the battle between Duan Ling Tian and Lin Dong being a Death Duel.
"I can't believe that even though I've left for so many years, the Fourth Imperial Highness still thinks so highly of me… For the sake of the favor he owes me, he even invited a powerhouse like Master Lin Dong from Southern Ridge Yuan Mansion. I'm sure he had to offer a great reward just to invite him over." Ye Mu Bai was touched.
Naturally, he only felt this way because he was unaware of the truth.
The reason King Qian had spent so much to invite Lin Dong, the strongest person on the Heaven Ranking, over was for the sake of the Devilseal Tablet. King Qian did not care about his matter at all.
However, since everything had fallen neatly into place, and the person Ye Mu Bai wanted dead happened to be Duan Ling Tian, King Qian planned to use this opportunity to fulfill his promise as well.
Although King Qian could not be bothered to return the favor to a person like Ye Mu Bai, he still sent someone to inform Ye Mu Bai to head to Northern Mang Mountain to watch Lin Dong kill Duan Ling Tian to show his subordinates that he was a grateful person.
"Third Brother, the person who killed you will die tomorrow. I'm useless for not being able to kill him with my own hands. However, it's the same since the Fourth Imperial Highness will seek revenge for you," Ye Mu Bai muttered to himself as his eyes shone with excitement.
In the main palace of King Rong's estate.
"Who is this Duan Ling Tian? Initially, I thought he's leaving the Situ Clan and giving up the position of Interim Advisor because of the pressure from Situ Clan. However, he accepted Lin Dong's challenge. Doesn't this mean he's not avoiding Lin Dong's challenge before this?" King Rong, the scholar-like middle-aged man, frowned.
Although he had never met the Interim Advisor of Situ Clan, Duan Ling Tian, he had heard of him before. However, he only just realized how mysterious Duan Ling Tian was.
An old man standing behind King Rong said, "Second Imperial Highness, King Qian's estate has stated the battle tomorrow will be a Death Duel. It still remains to be seen if Duan Ling Tian will show up tomorrow. Perhaps, he might have been able to force himself to show up before this. However, since it has turned into a Death Duel, we don't know if he'll show up."
"You have a point. Even if he has a high innate talent and is powerful, he's still quite weak compared to Lin Dong… I really don't understand why Fourth Brother spared no efforts in inviting Lin Dong from the Southern Ridge Yuan Mansion over just to deal with Duan Ling Tian." King Rong shook his head. He felt that King Qian had overestimated Duan Ling Tian.
"Second Imperial Highness, apart from being powerful and having a high innate talent, Duan Ling Tian also has a connection with the Drift Blaze Sect. Rumor has it that Lady Feng from Drift Blaze Sect has her heart set on him. Perhaps, King Qian is wary of Lady Feng from the Drift Blaze Sect that's why he didn't dare to be openly defiant," the old man continued to say, "Moreover, previously, Duan Ling Tian was still a member of Situ Clan. The clan is on King Rong's side. King Qian has to act cautiously no matter what."
"You're right." King Rong nodded. "Although Fourth Brother is dumb, there's no lack of capable people around him! Hurmph! I really can't believe that Situ Ming and his people from the Situ Clan would defect to his side. It's like a slap to my face!" When he reached the end of his sentence, his face darkened.
"Second Imperial Highness, I'm sure King Qian will be there at Northern Mang Mountain tomorrow. Will you go as well?" the old man asked as he looked at King Rong.
"Of course, I'll go." King Rong nodded. "It doesn't matter if Duan Ling Tian shows up or not, I'll still join in the fun. Fourth Brother has humiliated me a lot recently. If I don't show up tomorrow, who knows if he'll create rumors about me being afraid of him that's why I didn't show up at Northern Mang Mountain."
"I truly hope that Duan Ling Tian shows up at Northern Mang Mountain. Up until now, I've not met this young talent whose fame has spread far and wide in Windfall Nation," the old man said.
"I also hope that he'll show up. However, if he does, he'll most likely be killed by Lin Dong. It's fortunate he has already left the Situ Clan. Otherwise, our King Rong's estate's name will be affected as well if he dies," King Rong said.
In the Situ Clan.
Bai Li Hong and the others became restless and came over to advise Duan Ling Tian when they found out he was going to have a Death Duel with Lin Dong, the strongest person on the Heaven Ranking from the Southern Ridge Yuan Mansion.
They had been in Windfall Nation for some time now. Naturally, the knew what the Heaven Ranking was and what the strongest powerhouse on the Heaven Ranking meant.
The strongest powerhouse on the Heaven Ranking was someone widely acknowledged as the strongest person below the Saint Stage in the Southern Ridge Yuan Mansion's district.
