Upon hearing Jiang Qin's words, Duan Ling Tian looked at him nonchalantly before he replied at a neither hurried nor slow speed, "Why did I hurt you? It's nothing. It's just that I find you to be an eyesore. That's all."

The instant Duan Ling Tian finished speaking, the people in the surroundings burst into an uproar. Initially, when they saw Duan Ling Tian attacking Jiang Qin, the Vice Hall Master of the Enforcement Hall, after only asking him one question, they had thought Jiang Qin had offended Duan Ling Tian previously. To their surprise, Duan Ling Tian had attacked only because he did not find Jiang Qin pleasing to the eyes.

"He attacked Vice Hall Master Jiang just because he finds Vice Hall Master Jiang to be an eyesore?"

"D-don't you think Duan Ling Tian is behaving too unreasonably!"

"Even if he's acting unreasonable, he has the strength to do that. Based on his strength, I'm afraid only Lord Hall Master is a match for him. However, this is only my speculation!"

You're right! The strength he has displayed is terrifying! He easily killed a powerhouse at the Fifth Form of the Saint Celestial Stage with just a punch and defeated another powerhouse, also at the Fifth Form of the Saint Celestial Stage.

If someone were to ask me who's capable of this feat prior to today, I'd say only Lord Hall Master, Lord Sect Leader, and the three Guardians are able to do so."

"Me too."

The crowd discussed among themselves. Based on their words, it could be seen that they were surprised by the strength Duan Ling Tian had demonstrated.

On the other hand, Jiang Qin was still trying to recall when he had unknowingly offended Duan Ling Tian. If he had offended Duan Ling Tian, he would apologize even though he was injured. After all, he was in the wrong if he had really offended Duan Ling Tian. However, when he heard Duan Ling Tian's answer, he was stunned. After a while, his body began to tremble from anger. He was so angry that he threw up blood again.

Y-You... You..." Jiang Qin pointed at Duan Ling Tian as his body trembled violently. He was speechless.

What could he say?

What should he say?

Jiang Qin was completely baffled.

He did not dare to seek revenge. He did not have the courage. Earlier, he had heard about how Duan Ling Tian had easily defeated the Sanctum Leader of White Tiger Sanctum, but he was not certain if it was true. However, after Duan Ling Tian's attack, he was finally certain of how terrifying Duan Ling Tian's strength was.

"Even Lord Hall Master might not be a match for him! Although it's a crime for him to injure me, a Vice Hall Master of Enforcement Hall, with his strength, nobody will punish him. Even if he kills me, it's very likely that nothing will happen to him. After all, his strength is not inferior to the Hall Master of the Enforcement Hall. He's a genius who hasn't even reached the age of 50. The Fire Worship Sect will definitely place great importance on someone like him. Even if he kills all the Vice Hall Masters of the Enforcement Hall, Lord Sect Leader and the Guardians might not even punish him. Moreover, not many people are strong enough to punish him!" Jiang Qin thought to himself. The anger in his heart had vanished as well when he thought about this. He knew it was pointless no matter how angry he was. There was nothing he could do to Duan Ling Tian at all.


"Hmm? Is there something you want to say to me, Vice Hall Master Jiang?" Duan Ling Tian asked calmly as he looked at Jiang Qin.

Although Duan Ling Tian had spoken calmly, it sounded like a clap of thunder to Jiang Qin. He regained his senses and shook his head hastily as he said, "No! No!"

Would Jiang Qin dare to say anything at this moment? Would Duan Ling Tian not kill him if he answered that he had something to say? In his opinion, it was better to live a miserable life than to die an easy death.

As soon as Jiang Qin finished speaking, he discovered the people in the surroundings were looking at him strangely. He felt extremely humiliated, but he could only silently endure it. Never in his wildest dreams would he think that Duan Ling Tian did not attack him because he was an eyesore. It was because he had sent Duan Ling Tian's wife and daughter to the Enforcement Hall, separating their family.

If it was not for the fact that Jiang Qin was only carrying out his duty according to the Fire Worship Sect's law and he did not intentionally target Ke'er and their daughter, Duan Ling Tian would not have spared his life.

"Good!" Duan Ling Tian said before he shifted his attention back to Dong Yuan Jin again. Then, he said bluntly, "Vice Hall Master Dong, it's time to settle the matter between us once and for all."

The crowd instantly shifted their attention to Dong Yuan Jin as well. Based on Duan Ling Tian's words when he first arrived, they knew he had come to the Enforcement Hall to look for the Vice Hall Master of the Enforcement Hall!

Before Dong Yuan Jin could reply, his son, Dong Lin, had already jumped out and bellowed, "Duan Ling Tian, don't be too arrogant! I don't know how you became so strong in just a few years, but do you think you can act as please in the Fire Worship Sect. Let alone the sect, even the Enforcement Hall doesn't fear you. When Hall Master Leng Ying arrives, you'll be in trouble!" Dong Lin had used Leng Ying, Hall Master of the Enforcement Hall, to intimidate Duan Ling Tian.

"Leng Ying, the Hall Master of the Enforcement Hall?" Duan Ling Tian narrowed his gleaming eyes when he heard Dong Lin's words. A few years ago, when he was on duty in the Enforcement Hall, he had heard about Hall Master Leng Ying of the Enforcement Hall. Leng Yin was the strongest person in the Fire Worship Sect after the Sect Leader and the three Great Guardians. He was about to break through to the Seventh Form of the Saint Celestial Stage.

When Dong Lin saw Duan Ling Tian's narrowed eyes, he thought he had successfully intimidated Duan Ling Tian. He became more confident and answered arrogantly, "That's right! Lord Leng Ying is a powerhouse at the peak of the Sixth Form of the Saint Celestial Stage!"

"So what then?" Duan Ling Tian sneered. "Even if Hall Master Leng Ying is here, do you think I'll be afraid? Put aside the fact that he isn't even here, even if he is, it won't change your father's fate and your fate!"

Horror dawned on Dong Lin's face when he heard this. "You... You..."

On the other hand, Dong Yuan Jin's eyes widened as fear rose in his heart. 'Is it possible that Duan Ling Tian disregards the Hall Master of the Enforcement Hall so easily because he's stronger than the Hall Master?' He gasped inwardly when he thought about it.

At the same time, Dong Yuan Jin looked at Duan Ling Tian and said in a deep voice, "Duan Ling Tian, I know there was a conflict between you and my son previously. However, you choose not to pursue the matter at that time. I didn't think of seeking revenge for him at all. You returned today and came here to make a fuss... Are you trying to make a bigger issue out of something that has already been dealt with?"

Many people's expressions changed when they heard Dong Yuan Jin's words.

"So the reason Duan Ling Tian came to Enforcement Hall today is because of the conflict he had with Elder Dong Lin in the past?"

"Why is he making a fuss over such a small matter? It's only a small conflict. Is there a need for him to act so wantonly?"

"Perhaps, at that time he only chose to endure because he wasn't strong enough to challenge Vice Hall Master Dong. Now that he has grown strong, it's only natural for him to seek revenge."

"Hurmph! If Vice Hall Master Dong attacked Duan Ling Tian a few years back, would he be alive now?"

"I'm sure Vice Hall Master Dong is regretting that he didn't kill Duan Ling Tian back then. Now, Duan Ling Tian has turned into a huge threat!"

The crowd discussed among themselves. They silently reprimanded Duan Ling Tian for making a mountain out of a molehill and thought he was unforgiving.

"So what if Duan Ling Tian has a high innate talent..."

"He might be strong, but his conduct and character are questionable!"

"He's too arrogant! Doesn't he know he wouldn't be alive if Vice Hall Master Dong didn't spare his life back then?"

Most people supported Dong Yuan Jin. His words had caused the people to think he was a forgiving person. Most people thought he had done nothing wrong, and he was only a victim. They thought Duan Ling Tian was an ingrate who repaid kindness with cruelty.

Although Duan Ling Tian was not the kind of person who placed great importance on what others thought of him, he could help but feel annoyed when he saw Dong Yuan Jin's words had caused the others to think Dong Yuan Jin was a

"Dong Yuan Jin, I can't believe you're still trying to weasel your way out of this! This is nothing but a last-ditch attempt on your part to save your own hide," Duan Ling Tian said mockingly as he looked at Dong Yuan Jin with coldly, "Since you made yourself sound so pitiful, I'll give you a chance to live. If you're successful, I'll spare you and your son's lives. However, if you fail, don't blame me for being merciless!"

"What chance?" Dong Yuan Jin asked as an ominous feeling rose in his heart. In the next moment, his feeling was

"If you swear on the lighting penalty in front of everyone that you didn't order anyone to kill me when I was in the Fire Worship Sect three years ago, I'll forgive both of you!" Duan Ling Tian said.

Horror dawned on Dong Yuan Jin immediately.
