Chapter 3770 Duan Ling Tian Again?!
As soon as Xue Hai Chuan appeared, the inner elder and two inner deacons of the 10,000 Devils Sect were frightened out of their wits. They did not dare to run at all. They knew they would only be killed instantly if they tried to run. If they stayed, there was still a chance they might survive.
“Because of Duan Ling Tian?” Xue Hai Chuan was briefly stunned when he heard the old man’s words. Then, he laughed mockingly before he said, “What a terrible excuse! How did Duan Ling Tian offend the 10,000 Devils Sect for you to do this?”.
Xue Hai Chuan had heard Duan Ling Tian’s name many times since he returned to the Hidden Fog Sect. Even the members of the Hidden Fog Sect whom he protected would regularly mention this name. He had gotten tired of hearing this name. He did not expect the inner elder from the 10,000 Devils Sect would use this name as an excuse when caught trying to kill members of the Hidden Fog Sect. At this moment, he really wanted to meet Duan Ling Tian. He wanted to see what kind of person Duan Ling Tian was since his name was mentioned so regularly.
“Elder Xue, to be honest, Duan Ling Tian did not offend the 10,000 Devils Sect. The person he offended is Elder Kuang Tian Zheng who used to be from our 10,000 Devils Sect,” the old man said solemnly.
“Kuang Tian Zheng?” Xue Hai Chuan looked at the inner elder of the 10,000 Devils Sect as he said, “The inner elder of the Flying Dragon Sect?”
Xue Hai Chuan was no stranger to Kuang Tian Zheng. Kuang Tian Zheng had joined the Flying Dragon Sect earlier than he did. In the past, Kuang Tian Zheng had given a lot of trouble when he was still rising in the Flying Dragon Sect. After he had grown strong enough, he naturally returned the favor. Now, Kuang Tian Zheng would take a detour whenever Kuang Tian Zheng saw him.
“Yes.” The expression of the inner elder of the 10,000 Devils Sect grew even more solemn at this time.
“How did Duan Ling Tian offend him?” Xue Hai Chuan asked nonchalantly.
The inner elder quickly replied, “Duan Ling Tian killed Chu Han, a disciple of Elder Kuang Tian Zheng!”
Upon hearing this, there was finally a slight change in Xue Hai Chuan’s expression. Following that, he sent a message to his friend in the Flying Dragon Sect to verify the matter.
It did not take long before Xue Hai Chuan received a reply. “Indeed. Chu Han is dead. He died 12 years ago. At that time, Kuang Tian Zheng searched high and low for Chu Han’s murderer. He left the sect for some time and only returned when his second disciple was about to get married.”
Xue Hai Chuan was slightly surprised upon hearing his friend’s reply. After a moment, he looked at the old man mockingly and said, “Since Duan Ling Tian killed Chu Han, why didn’t Kuang Tian Zheng kill him? After all, Kuang Tian Zheng returned to the 10,000 Devils Sect, didn’t he?”.
The old man looked flustered by the question. After a moment, he said, “Elder Kuang learned that Duan Ling Tian had returned to the Hidden Fog Sect when Duan Ling Tian killed Shangguan Xiong Feng and Long Xiao. Shortly after that, Duan Ling Tian left the Hidden Fog Sect to join the Linghu clan. Elder Kuang went to the Linghu clan to look for Duan Ling Tian, but the Linghu clan was adamant about protecting Duan Ling Tian. The Linghu clan relied on their Guarding Formation to protect Duan Ling Tian. In the end, Elder Kuang could only leave in anger. Soon after that, Elder Kuang returned to the Flying Dragon Sect.” After a brief pause, he continued to say, “Elder Kuang saved my life once. I saw how angry he was so I wanted to do something for him. Since it’s impossible for me to kill Duan Ling Tian, I didn’t think about attacking him. I went into closed-door cultivation and only came out recently. When I heard about people attacking the members of the Hidden Fog Sect, I thought I’d seize the opportunity to vent my anger and brought two of my juniors with me. I really didn’t expect to meet you as soon as we made a move.”
As the old man spoke, the two middle-aged men stood with their heads lowered like children who were caught misbehaving. The old man’s explanation was not too shabby. He calmly explained his reason for wanting to kill the two members of the Hidden Fog Sect. He even said this was the first time attacking the members of the Hidden Fog Sect to appeal to Xue Hai Chuan.
Upon hearing the old man’s words, the expressions of the two members of the Hidden Fog Sect changed greatly. Just as they were about to remind Xue Hai Chuan that the old man was lying…
Xue Hai Chuan said indifferently, “Is that so? Very well, I spare all of your lives as long as you swear on the Devil Heart’s Blood Oath to prove that you’re telling the truth.”
With these words, the expressions of the trio from the 10,000 Devils Sect changed drastically.
Xue Hai Chuan’s expression turned frosty immediately as he said, “If you don’t swear on the Devil Heart’s Blood Oath, don’t even think about leaving this place.”
As Xue Hai Chuan spoke, Divine Energy surged from his body. Even with the profundities from the law, the Divine Energy of an intermediate Lord of Gods was enough to make the trio tremble in fear.
Finally, one of the middle-aged men caved under the pressure first. He kneeled in front of Xue Hai Chuan and pleaded desperately, “Elder Xue, please show mercy! I was just following orders! I admit my crimes! I killed 13 members of the Hidden Fog Sect in total! However, I only did as I was ordered. Elder Xue, if you spare my life, I promise to leave the 10,000 Devils Sect immediately. I, I’m willing to join the Hidden Fog Sect and retaliate against the 10,000 Devils Sect! I’m very familiar with the 10,000 Devils Sect’s estate and the area around it. I promise to kill no fewer than 20 members of the 10,000 Devils Sect within a year!”
In order to survive, the middle-aged man did everything he could. He could not withstand the pressure Xue Hai Chuan had exerted on him and his comrades. Moreover, how could he not be afraid when the famous Xue Hai Chuan wanted to kill him?
Following that, the other middle-aged man fell to his knees as well. “Please show mercy, Elder Xue! I can do what he said as well! Please spare
Now that the middle-aged men had submitted, the old man could not withstand the growing pressure as well. He joined the other two and kneeled on the ground as well. “I, I can join them and kill the members of the 10,000 Devils Sect as well! If I don’t kill at least 100 members of the 10,000 Devils Sect within a year, I’ll commit suicide in front of you, Elder Xue! I’m willing to swear on the Devil Heart’s Blood Oath regarding this matter!”
The two members of the Hidden Fog Sect were stunned by the trio’s sudden change in attitude. When they regained their senses, their eyes were filled with admiration when they looked at Xue Hai Chuan. After all, Xue Hai Chuan had yet to make a move, but the trio was already frightened to this extent. As expected of the idol of the members of the Hidden Fog Sect!
“Why would I need your help to kill the members of the 10,000 Devils Sect?” Xue Hai Chuan smiled icily.
The trio’s expression turned horrified as they watched Xue Hai Chuan raise his hand. Following that, they flew back one after another as though they had been hit by a huge hammer.
In just a moment, the trio exploded into a mist of blood.
After killing the trio from the 10,000 Devils Sect, Xue Hai Chuan looked at the two pale members of the Hidden Fog Sect and said, “Return to the sect on your own. You should be safe since I don’t think there’s anyone from the 10,000 Devils Sect lurking around. Those three must have sent Voice Transmission to warn the others earlier. I’m going to pay the 10,000 Devils Sect a visit.”
Without waiting for the duo’s reply, Xue Hai Chuan vanished into thin air.
It was just as Xue Hai Chuan had said. After receiving Voice Transmission from the trio who were killed by Xue Hai Chuan, they recalled the groups of people lurking near the Hidden Fog Sect immediately.
The groups of inner elders and inner deacons’ expressions turned grim instantly when they received the news. They did not waste time and rushed back to the 10,000 Devils Sect immediately. What a joke! How could they stay now that Xue Hai Chuan had appeared? They would surely die if they ran into him!
Alas, before these groups of people arrived at the 10,000 Devils Sect, Xue Hai Chuan easily caught up to them. It took Xue Hai Chuan less than an hour to kill these groups of people. After he was done, he continued to make his way to the 10,000 Devils Sect.
When Xue Hai Chuan was in the 10,000 Devils Sect, he killed three core elders and 12 inner elders of the 10,000 Devils Sect in front of Lan Qing, the Sect Leader of the 10,000 Devils Sect. Even Lan Qing was heavily injured.
Before Xue Hai Chuan left, he said to the seriously-injured Lan Qing, “I only spared your life so you can tell the old geezers in the 10,000 Devil faction in the Flying Dragon Sect about what I’ve done. If they’re unhappy, tell them to come and look for me.”
Half a month later.
A figure appeared outside of the Heavenly Stairs in the Hidden Fog Sect. The figure belonged to a tall middle-aged man with a determined expression on his face and eyes that flashed icily.
In just a blink of an eye, a person appeared in front of the middle-aged man. When he saw the young man in front of him whose temperament had changed greatly from 10,000 years ago, his eyes shone with tears. “Hai, Hai Chuan…”
The two brothers hugged now that they had met after being separated for such a long time.
“Elder brother, you were in the Heavenly Stairs for 10,000 years. Now that you’re out, what do you want to do most? No matter what you want to do, I’ll help you achieve it!” Xue Hai Chuan said as he looked at Xue Hai Shan with barely concealed excitement.
“I want to have a drink!” Xue Hai Shan laughed. He was equally as excited to see his younger brother whom he had not seen for 10,000 years.
“Alright, let’s have a drink! Let’s get drunk!” Xue Hai Chuan said.
“Wait! I want to invite another person to join us. He’s also a disciple of our Hidden Fog Sect. I met him more than 10 years ago in the Heavenly Stairs. If it weren’t for him being merciful, I would’ve died, and I wouldn’t have been able to meet you again, Hai Chuan!”
An elegant purple figure appeared in Xue Hai Shan’s mind as he spoke.
“Who is it?” Xue Hai Chuan’s expression turned solemn. Just the thought of his elder brother almost dying in the Heavenly Stairs made him break out in cold sweat.
Xue Hai Shan replied, “His name is Duan Ling Tian.”
Xue Hai Chuan froze slightly upon hearing Xue Hai Shan’s reply. Then, he exclaimed, “Duan Ling Tian again?!”.
