War Sovereign Soaring The Heavens Chapter 1617
Situ Hao and Situ Hang were stunned when they found out Mister Feng, Feng Wu Dao, whom Duan Ling Tian brought to the Situ Clan was the father of Lady Feng of Drift Blaze Sect.
It did not cross their minds that an ordinary-looking man whose cultivation base had just broken through to the Mortal Shedding Stage was the father of Lady Feng whose name had spread far and wide in Windfall Nation.
Who was Lady Feng? Previously, she was the strongest person among the younger generation in Windfall Nation. It was only when Master Duan appeared that she was defeated by him. Apart from having extremely high innate talent in Martial Dao, her identity also evoked envy. She was the direct disciple of the Sect Leader of Drift Blaze Sect, a seventh-rate force. Moreover, she was also the Sect Leader’s favorite disciple. Everyone in Windfall Nation knew the Sect Leader of Drift Blaze Sect treated Lady Feng like her own daughter.
In Windfall Nation, everyone knew offending Lady Feng was equivalent to offending the Sect Leader of Drift Blaze Sect.
Who was the Sect Leader of Drift Blaze Sect? She was someone whom even the Imperial Family of Windfall Nation did not dare to offend. She possessed a huge deterrent force in Windfall Nation.
“In that case, you really don’t have to worry about Situ Ming making a move on you.” Situ Hao nodded.
He knew very well that once Situ Ming learned that Duan Ling Tian would be bringing Lady Feng’s father to visit her in the Drift Blaze Sect, he would not make a move no matter courageous he was.
Perhaps, he might be able to successfully make his move. However, if something happened to Duan Ling Tian or Feng Wu Dao, Lady Feng would definitely explode in anger. At that time, even if the Sect Leader of Drift Blaze Sect would not avenge Duan Ling Tian, she would still avenge Feng Wu Dao since he was the biological father of her favorite direct disciple. Killing Feng Wu Dao was equivalent to slapping her.
Even if there was no evidence to prove Situ Ming was the culprit, the Sect Leader of Drift Blaze Sect still would not let him go since he had the motive. The Sect Leader would not let anyone who had a motive to kill Duan Ling Tian and Feng Wu Dao go since she would need to give her favorite direct disciple a satisfactory explanation.
“I can’t believe Mister Feng is actually Lady Feng’s father. I’ve been a little impolite earlier.” Situ Hang sighed.
“Uncle Feng doesn’t care about these things.” Duan Ling Tian shook his head with a smile on his face. Then, he bade Situ Hao and his son farewell before he returned to his room.
After he returned to his room, Situ Hao and his son deliberately spread the news of Mister Feng, Lady Feng’s father, visiting the Situ Clan. Moreover, everyone also found out that Master Duan would be accompanying Mister Feng to the Drift Blaze Sect tomorrow to look for Lady Feng.
At this moment, a figure rushed into Situ Ming’s courtyard.
“Second Master, as far as I know, Situ Hou won’t be following Duan Ling Tian to the Drift Blaze Sect tomorrow.” The figure who had rushed in was a Situ Clan’s elder.
“Oh?” When Situ Ming heard the Situ Clan’s elder’s words, his eyes lit up immediately. “In that case, we’ll finally have a chance to get rid of Duan Ling Tian!”
He hated Duan Ling Tian who had disrupted his plans again and again. He hated him so much that he longed to crush him. Now that he was presented with an opportunity to kill Duan Ling Tian, there was no way he would pass up this chance.
“However, why is Situ Hou not following him?” Soon after, Situ Ming frowned. He felt that something was amiss. In truth, he was not afraid even if Situ Hou accompanied Duan Ling Tian since it was just Situ Hou alone.
All he needed to do was bring the other Supreme Elder of Situ Clan who was evenly matched with Situ Hou along with him. It was impossible for Situ Hou to fight two Saint Stage powerhouses at once.
“It must have something to do with the purpose of Duan Ling Tian’s departure tomorrow,” the Situ Clan’s elder who came to look for Situ Ming said, “According to the news I heard, Duan Ling Tian will be accompanying the father of Lady Feng to the Drift Blaze Sect tomorrow for a visit.”
“The father of Lady Feng from Drift Blaze Sect?” Situ Ming’s expression turned grave. “What’s going on actually?”
“I heard Duan Ling Tian brought a few people to the Situ Clan today. One of them is Lady Feng’s father,” the Situ Clan’s elder said, “However, I suspect he’s most likely a fake. Lady Feng is so famous in Windfall Nation, but we’ve heard nothing about her father at all.”
“Hurmph! Tell me then, have you heard about the close relationship between Lady Feng and Duan Ling Tian?” Situ Ming snorted coldly.
When the Situ Clan’s elder heard this, he fell silent immediately.
Currently, the news of the close relationship between Interim Advisor Duan Ling Tian of Situ Clan and Lady Feng of the Drift Blaze Sect had already spread everywhere in Windfall Nation. Many people even said they were a golden couple and that they were a match made in heaven because both of them were powerhouses who stood at the peak among the younger generation of Windfall Nation. They were like idols in Windfall Nation.
“No wonder Situ Hao didn’t let Situ Hou follow him. As it turns out, Lady Feng’s father will be there,” Situ Ming said with a grave expression.
Initially, he thought this was a golden opportunity. Fortunately, he discovered it was a trap. A trap that he did not dare to jump into.
If it was just Duan Ling Tian alone, it would have been okay. Although Duan Ling Tian had a close relationship with Lady Feng, it was not enough for the Sect Leader of Drift Blaze Sect to personally make a move.
After all, Duan Ling Tian and Lady Feng’s relationship was ambiguous. They did not verify their relationship status. Even if Lady Feng was the Sect Leader of Drift Blaze Sect, Zi Yun’s favorite disciple, it would be difficult for Zi Yun to avenge him considering her status and position.
A dead person was like an extinguished lamp. Zi Yun definitely would not seek revenge for someone she barely knew.
However, Lady Feng’s father was different! He was Lady Feng’s biological father. If he died, let alone Lady Feng who would explode in anger, even Zi Yun would not stand idly at the side and watch.
Even if Zi Yun did not do anything, outsiders might even call her heartless for not caring about the death of her favorite disciple’s father.
“I think he’s an impersonator.” The Situ Clan’s elder stuck to his opinion.
“Even if he’s really an impersonator, are you saying we should take the risk? What if he’s really her father? At that time, do you think Zi Yun would stand aside and watch without doing anything?” Situ Ming smirked coldly.
“As long as everything is carried out flawlessly, even Zi Yun, the Sect Leader of Drift Blaze Sect, won’t be able to do anything to us,” the Situ Clan’s elder said.
“Do you think Zi Yun, the Sect Leader of Drift Blaze Sect, is going to collect evidence if she wants to kill someone?” Situ Ming snorted.
Although Situ Ming knew Duan Ling Tian would leave Situ Clan tomorrow, and it was the best chance for him to make his move, he did not dare to do it all. He was afraid of the consequences of offending the Sect Leader of Drift Blaze Sect.
He had also thought about whether he could kill Duan Ling Tian without harming the people around him. After thinking further about it, he felt it was almost impossible to do so.
Due to this reason, he could only watch as Duan Ling Tian leave the Situ Clan and the capital in an ostentatious manner. He did not dare to make a move at all.
It seemed as though only Duan Ling Tian and Feng Wu Dao had left the capital of Windfall Nation. However, Duan Ling Tian could clearly sense the people Situ Hao had sent out to protect them in the dark. He did not reject Situ Hao’s good intention since he felt they might encounter some people who had underestimated them during their journey. Since he had Situ Hao’s people with him, he did not have to worry about being disturbed.
During the journey, Feng Wu Dao could not conceal the excitement in his eyes at all. He was finally going to see his daughter whom he had not seen for several years.
Feng Tian Wu was his only daughter, and she was the light of his life.
When he learned that Feng Tian Wu was safe and sound, his heart that was in turmoil these past few years finally calmed down. His heart ached, but he felt relieved as well when he learned about Feng Tian Wu’s accomplishment.
“Uncle Feng, the Drift Blaze Sect is not too far away. With my speed, we’ll be able to reach by noon,” Duan Ling Tian told Feng Wu Dao with a smile.
Duan Ling Tian had seen the excitement in Feng Wu Dao’s eyes. He completely understood his feelings. “I’m sure Tian Wu will be very happy when she sees you, Uncle Feng.”
When Duan Ling Tian thought of this, he felt happy for Feng Tian Wu as well.
Meanwhile, in the Windfall Nation’s Imperial Palace, two figure could be seen slowly walking out of a side palace of a magnificent palace.
The figure in the lead was an aloof middle-aged man. The figure following behind him was an old man. The old man was behaving awkwardly as though he was feeling nervous.
Suddenly, the middle-aged man in front opened his mouth and asked nonchalantly, “The reason you came back to the capital is to use make use of the promise the Fourth Imperial Highness gave you?”
“Yes,” the old man responded politely. He did not dare to be impolite in front of the middle-aged man.
“Remember, if the Fourth Imperial Highness agrees to your request, you’ll no longer have anything to do with King Qian’s estate,” the middle-aged man said.
“I understand.” The old man nodded. His gaze remained as determined as before.
All this time, he had spent his life at the southern frontier of Windfall Nation. His mind was as calm as still water. He no longer had any desire to return to King Qian’s estate where he had worked himself to the bones.
At the moment when he felt the loneliest, he met his second and third brother. Just like that, a group of bandits was formed. All this while, they had lived together. They might not be biological brothers, but their relationship was better than biological brothers.
However, his third brother was killed recently. It was obvious the person who killed his third brother was a powerhouse that he could not deal with.
The moment he thought of this, he recalled the King Qian’s Estate where he had worked to the bone and the promise that King Qian, the Fourth Imperial Highness of Windfall Nation’s Imperial Family, had given him previously. It so happened that he got lucky at that time and managed to save King Qian’s life. Due to this reason, King Qian had promised to grant one of his requests.
