"Don't tell me your Situ Clan has a rule stating only Saint Inscription Masters can come? If that's the case, I'll leave immediately," Duan Ling Tian said indifferently with an I-could-not-care-less expression in the face of the woman whose face had turned grave.
When the beautiful woman heard this, her face eased up a little before she looked at Duan Ling Tian again. Without saying another word, she continued to lead the way.
Although she did not know where this young man got his confidence from, she did not ask him to leave. Since he was already here, she might as well let him try. She would be neglecting her duty if she had chased him away.
Under the beautiful woman's guidance, Duan Ling Tian soon arrived at a spacious courtyard inside the Situ Clan's spacious mansion.
"I'll go in first to inform them of your arrival," the beautiful woman told Duan Ling Tian and went into a big courtyard without waiting for Duan Ling Tian's reply.
As Duan Ling Tian stood by the door, his eyes gleamed brightly. "The inner mansion's manager of Situ Clan is not simple as well… Her cultivation base is at the Paramount Saint Rudiment Stage. The vibe she gives me is no different from the Vice Sect Leaders of the Moon Illumination Sect. She must already be at the Imminent Saint Stage."
If it was before, Duan Ling Tian would be a little more cautious knowing the beautiful woman was at the Imminent Saint Stage. However, currently, he felt indifferent.
With his current strength, he was confident nobody under the Saint Stage was a match for him even if he did not use the Jasper Celestial Sword.
Soon after, the beautiful lady came out again with an old man.
The old man had a full head of white hair and was dressed in a clean and neat white robe. He appeared elegant and graceful. Every step he took looked extremely natural in Duan Ling Tian's eyes. To a certain extent, he even felt a little pressured by the old man.
"Saint Stage powerhouse!" When Duan Ling Tian saw how respectful and humble the beautiful woman was to the old man, coupled with the pressure he felt, it was not difficult for him to figure out the old man's strength. He could not help but feel slightly surprised.
This place seemed like the residence of the Great Young Master of the Situ Clan. Why was a Saint Stage powerhouse here?
In a seventh-rate force like Situ Clan, they would usually have a few Saint Stage powerhouses at most. It was only natural for Duan Ling Tian to be surprised at the presence of one here.
"This is Elder Hou," the beautiful woman said to Duan Ling Tian as soon as the old man appeared.
"Elder Hou," Duan Ling Tian nodded his head at the old man as a form of greeting.
Before the old man could respond, the beautiful woman reminded Duan Ling Tian through Voice Transmission, a hint of annoyance could be heard in her voice. "Elder Hou is the Supreme Elder of Situ Clan so please have more respect."
"Manager Fu, don't you think you're being a little controlling? The purpose of my visit is to do Situ Clan a favor. So what if Elder Hou is your clan's Supreme Elder? Don't tell me you expect me to bow and kneel?" Duan Ling said loudly and bluntly without any restraint as he glanced at the woman indifferently.

"YOU!" It was apparent the beautiful woman did not expect Duan Ling Tian to say such words out loud. Her face immediately darkened as her eyes flashed coldly.
"What? Did I say something wrong?" Duan Ling Tian smirked.
From the moment Duan Ling Tian entered the Situ Clan, he had already made up his mind to stabilize his position in Windfall Nation through the Situ Clan. In order to be regarded as important, he must maintain his dignity.
With his strength and the help he had, he indeed had the qualification to act in such a way in front of a clan like the Situ Clan.
Meanwhile, Duan Ling Tian no longer spared a glance for the beautiful woman. Instead, he was looking at the old man before him. He noticed an inexplicable smile had crept up unto the corner of the old man's mouth.
He had no idea why, but he instantly became guarded as soon as he saw the smile.
At this moment, the earth began to quake accompanied by the sound of an explosion. Duan Ling Tian felt a strong wind sweeping toward him. It was blowing so strongly that there was a sound of wailing. A fragrance accompanied the strong wind.
This fragrance was not unfamiliar to Duan Ling Tian. It came from Manager Fu, the inner mansion's manager, the beautiful woman following behind the old man.
Manager Fu's sudden move was completely out of Duan Ling Tian's expectation.
However, Duan Ling Tian was not a weak person. In the face of Manager Fu's sudden attack, his right arm twitched a little before he unleashed his brute strength. When the True Energy went through the 99 Saint Veins into his fist, his mighty fist punched out to meet Manager Fu's delicate palm that she had thrust out in order to gain the upper hand.
The delicate thrust of palm charged toward him abruptly as though it had transformed into a gigantic cattail leaf fan. She had wanted to send Duan Ling Tian flying with a thrust of her palm.
The iron fist sparred with his opponent, defending more than attacking. It met the beautiful woman's palm fearlessly.
At that instant, the fist and palm collided.
Another thunderous explosion reverberated in the air. Duan Ling Tian and Manager Fu finally engaged with each other.
Their fight did not involve the use of techniques from Saint Grade Martial Tactics, True Energy Consolidated Weapon, True Energy Consolidated Beast, True Energy Consolidated Territory or even Saint Weapon. They battled using only their True Energies.
Naturally, in Duan Ling Tian's case, it was not just True Energy. After making a breakthrough to the Paramount Saint Rudiment Stage, his physical body had once again transformed, and the energy he possessed now was even more terrifying than before. Due to the fact that he had only broken through to the Paramount Saint Rudiment Stage not too long ago, he did not have any advantage in regard to True Energy.
Although he had 99 Saint Veins to carry his True Energy, he was defending more than attacking. This was because before he had a chance to make a move, Manager Fu had already gathered her True Energy in her palm and did not show any mercy at all in her storm-like attack. Due to this reason, his 99 Saint Veins did not give him any advantage at all.
As airwaves swept out tyrannically from the place where they collided, Duan Ling Tian's expression remained unchanged as he stood rooted to the same spot. It was as though he was an unmovable mountain, not even moving an inch.
On the other hand, Manager Fu who had originally looked confident had lost her confidence.
In the next moment, she was sent flying. She only managed to come to a stop after flying several meters away, looking wretched.
In fact, Duan Ling Tian had shown some mercy. Otherwise, she would be in an even more wretched state.
"Can I go in now?" After defeating Manager Fu, Duan Ling Tian did not even look at her. Instead, he looked at the old man, Situ Hou, the Supreme Elder of the clan, who was standing not far away from the beginning until the end.
He did not even have to guess to know it was the old man who had asked Manager Fu to attack. Otherwise, she would not have dared to act so recklessly in front of the old man.
"Of course." When Situ Hou heard Duan Ling Tian's words, he nodded as though he was not aware he had been seen through.
When Duan Ling Tian heard his words, he instantly strode into the huge courtyard.
Situ Hou followed him. At the same time, he cast a side glance at Manager Fu who looked pale. "This has nothing to do with you anymore."
"Alright," she responded politely.
However, before she left, she could not help but turn to look at Duan Ling Tian's silhouette. A hint of dread and disbelief flashed in her eyes.
"I'm certain he's not a Saint Stage powerhouse, but he's obviously more powerful than me! Could it be he's a Heaven Ranking's powerhouse?" The moment Manager Fu thought of this, her eyes lit up immediately.
The Heaven Ranking was a valuable ranking in the Dao Martial Saint Land. It was usually created by a fifth-rate force. In other words, the Heaven Ranking covered an entire piece of land. To be more precise, it covered all the powerhouses at the peak of the Saint Rudiment Stage that was on a piece of land.
There were 100 people in the Heaven Ranking. All of them were strong powerhouses at the peak of the Saint Rudiment Stage and were merely a step away from entering the Saint Stage.
It was said that the weakest person in the Heaven Ranking possessed the strength to fight against three ordinary Imminent Saint Stage powerhouses at the same time.
If Duan Ling Tian learned about the existence of the Heaven Ranking, he would definitely be astonished since it was similar to the Earth Ranking in the Nine Sect Alliances. The difference was the Earth Ranking were rankings of powerhouses at the peak of the Mortal Shedding Stage while the Heaven Ranking were rankings of powerhouses at the peak of the Saint Rudiment Stage.
In truth, the Earth Ranking was an imitation of the Heaven Ranking.
In the Dao Martial Saint Land, there were numerous places similar to the Nine Sect Alliances' district.
As for fifth-rate forces, although there were many of them in the Dao Martial Saint Land, there were only about several dozens of them.
Even if every fifth-rate force had their own Heaven Ranking, there were only several dozens of Heaven Rankings in the Dao Martial Saint Land… Based on this, one could see how important the Heaven Ranking was.
All of the powerhouses ranked in the Heaven Ranking were the best at the Saint Rudiment Stage.
It was precisely because of this Manager Fu's attitude changed completely when she suspected that Duan Ling Tian was a Heaven Ranking's powerhouse.
At this time, when she recalled the almost perfect handsome face, her cheeks suddenly flushed. It was as though she was a shy girl in springtime.
Naturally, Duan Ling Tian had no idea about Manager Fu's change in attitude nor did he want to know about it.
At this moment, he entered the Great Young Master's room with Situ Hou, the Supreme Elder of Situ Clan. The room was plain. Duan Ling Tian found it hard to believe this was the room of the successor of Situ Clan.
This fact alone made Duan Ling Tian felt little fond of the Great Young Master of Situ Clan.
At the same time, Duan Ling Tian finally saw the Great Young Master of Situ Clan, Situ Hang. He was lying on the bed.
Situ Hang had a handsome yet soft face. Currently, his face was as pale as a sheet of paper. The black spider mark between his eyebrows looked horrifying.
When Duan Ling Tian entered the room with Situ Hou, Situ Hang had struggled to sit up. Based on that, one could see how very weak he was. It was almost as though he was like an ordinary person with no cultivation base.
"Grandpa Hou." He first greeted Situ Hou before shifting his gaze toward Duan Ling Tian. He moved his pale lips, asking, "And this is…?"
"This is the master who's here to take a look at you." Situ Hou seemed to have a good relationship with Situ Hang. His eyes were kind when he spoke to him.
"I've already given up so why do all of you still…" Situ Hang sighed.
"Don't give up until the end," Situ Hou said earnestly.
"Alright." Situ Hang nodded before looking at Duan Ling Tian with a forced smile on his face. "Please."
