"Please give the Enforcement Hall justice, Lord Sect Leader!" Leng Ying said slowly as he looked at the cultivation place of the Sect Leader of Fire Worship Sect. His tone was filled with rage. It was obvious he was furious at Duan Ling Tian for killing Dong Yuan Jian, a Vice Hall Master of the Enforcement Sect, in front of him.

Leng Yin had long noticed Duan Ling Tian's presence. After he finished, he looked at Duan Ling Tian and smiled icily. "Duan Ling Tian, didn't you say I can report this matter to Lord Sect Leader? Why are you here? Are you scared now?"

When Leng Ying saw Duan Ling Tian here, he thought that Duan Ling Tian was worried and had followed him here.

"You're overthinking things!" Duan Ling Tian said indifferently, "I'm here to look for Sect Leader about a different matter."

Leng Ying's expression darkened when he heard Duan Ling Tian's words.

Whoosh!

Wing began to blow as Tang Xuan, the Sect Leader of Fire Worship Sect, appeared before Duan Ling Tian and Leng Yin. Leng Yin instantly greeted TangXuan respectfully as soon as he saw him. "Lord Sect Leader!"

On the other hand, Duan Ling Tian only nodded and greeted Tang Xuan casually. "Sect Leader!"

Compared to how respectful Leng Yin was, Duan Ling Tian had acted very casually.

When Leng Yin saw Duan Ling Tian's casual and disrespectful manner, he felt smug. He thought that Duan Ling Tian would definitely be punished. However, he was shocked when he saw Tang Xuan nodding at Duan Ling Tian in a friendly manner and did not seem angry at his casual and rude manner. Based on what he knew, the Sect Leader was not someone so kind and did not care about propriety. Was it possible that the temperament of the Sect Leader of Fire Worship Sect had changed after he had broken through to the Ninth Form of the Saint Celestial Stage?

"Hall Master Leng, congratulations for successfully breaking through to the Seventh Form of the Saint Celestial Stage," Tang Xuan looked at Leng Ying and said, "According to the ancient law in the Fire Worship Sect, members of the sect who have broken through to the Seventh Form of the Saint Celestial Stage will become a Guardian. From now on, apart from being the Hall Master of the Enforcement Hall, you're also the fifth Guardian in the sect!"

Leng Ying was overwhelmed with emotions when he heard Tang Xuan's words. He had worked so hard in order to become a Guardian of the Fire Worship Sect after all. The position of a Guardian was so high that only the Sect Leader's position was higher. However, he was confused by Tang Xuan's last sentence.

Leng Yin looked at Tang Xuan in confusion as he stuttered, "T-The fifth Guardian?" There was an expression of bewilderment on his face. There were only three Guardians in the Fire Worship Sect as far as he knew. Now that he had been raised to the position of a Guardian after breaking through to the Seventh Form of the Saint Celestial Stage, should he not be the fourth Guardian?


Tang Xuan, naturally, knew why Leng Ying was confused. He quickly turned to Duan Ling Tian and said, "We already have a fourth Guardian in the Fire Worship Sect before you became a Guardian. This person is Guardian Ling Tian. I planned to officially bestow him the title of Guardian in three days' time in front of everyone in the sect. It seems like I'll have to announce that the sect now has two new Guardians. At that time, the western region and the Upper Province will find out that we have now five Guardians in the sect!" When he finished speaking, there was a wide smile on his face. It was obvious he was in a good mood.

"G-Guardian Ling Tian?" When Leng Ying heard Tang Xuan's words, his eyes widened immediately. Then, he turned to look at Duan Ling Tian in bewilderment. After a while, he remembered that Duan Ling Tian was stronger than him. It was only natural he would become a Guardian in the Fire Worship Sect.

This did not occur to Leng Ying because he had regarded Duan Ling Tian as a true disciple all this time. Even if Duan Ling Tian had proven to be more powerful than him, it did not cross his mind that a true disciple would be made a Guardian.

"Yes." Tang Xuan nodded. "Hall Master Leng, I know about what happened in the Enforcement Hall since I've been monitoring the sect with my Divine Consciousness. It's understandable for Guardian Ling Tian to seek revenge. After all, the Dong family was the one who wanted to kill him first. Let's put this matter behind us. What do you think, Hall Master Leng?" Tang Xuan asked as he looked at Leng Ying.

Duan Ling Tian's heart jolted when he heard Tang Xuan's words. The Sect Leader of Fire Worship Sect, had, indeed, covered the entire Fire Worship Sect with his Divine Consciousness.

"Since that's the case, I'll listen to you, Lord Sect Leader." Once Jiang Qin learned that Duan Ling Tian was a Guardian in the Fire Worship Sect, he knew it was pointless for him to complain anymore. A Guardian in the Fire Worship Sect was somewhat above the law of the sect.

Even if Duan Ling Tian did not have any enmity with the Dong family and had killed them for no reason, he would not have been held accountable, let alone there was enmity between him and the Dong family.

The Fire Worship Sect placed great importance on the Guardians. The Dong family was nothing in comparison. After all, the loss of the Dong family was an insignificant matter. However, the loss of a Guardian would significantly affect the Fire Worship Sect.

"Guardian Ling Tian, Hall Master Leng, both of you are now pillars of the Fire Worship Sect. Let me be the judge of this.

I would like both of you to let this matter go. What do you think?" Tang Xuan's gaze shifted between Duan Ling Tian and Leng Ying. He had spoken calmly but his tone brooked no argument.

"Don't worry, Sect Leader. I have no enmity with Hall Master Leng at all," Duan Ling Tian replied. He was telling the truth. He really had no enmity with Leng Yin. He had only attacked Leng Ying earlier because Leng Ying had interfered with the matter between him and the Dong family. Since he had already killed the Dong family, he was not bothered with Leng Yi as long as Leng Ying did not look for trouble with him.

Don't worry, Lord Sect Leader, I'll do as you said," Leng Ying quickly answered as soon as Duan Ling Tian finished speaking. As soon as he finished speaking, he bade Tang Xuan farewell and ignored Duan Ling Tian before he left. Although he had acquiesced to Tang Xuan's words, it did not mean he wanted to be friends with him. His action was like a silent protest.

Tang Xuan frowned when he saw this, but he did not say anything. He understood Leng Ying's feelings. Although Leng Yin would not act against Duan Ling Tian, it did not mean he wanted to be friends with Duan Ling Tian. It would take a long time for both of them to be friendly with each other. Some things were not meant to be rushed.

"Guardian Ling Tian, I heard you saying to Hall Master Leng that you're looking for me?" Tang Xuan asked as he looked at Duan Ling Tian.

"Yes," Duan Ling Tian nodded and said bluntly, "Sect Leader, I'm friends with Gan Ru Yan, the direct disciple of Guardian Qing Huo. I heard she's staying in your cultivation place. I wonder if you'll let me see her?"

"Guardian Ling Tian, this is a small matter..." Tang Xuan said, causing Duan Ling Tian's eyes to lit up immediately, "However, I'm afraid you came at the wrong time, Guardian Ling Tian. Ru Yan has gone into closed-door cultivation and hasn't come out. She won't be coming out until she has a breakthrough. I think you'll have to wait for a while before you can see her."

Duan Ling Tian narrowed his eyes immediately when he heard this. His eyes dimmed and the smile on his face froze.

He did not expect Tang Xuan would say something like that. Gan Ru Yan would not come out until she had made a breakthrough? Naturally, he did not believe Tang Xuan. How could it be so coincidental?

However, there was nothing Duan Ling Tian could do even though he knew it was a lie. If he acted recklessly now, it would only worsen the situation.

Duan Ling Tian calmed himself before he said, "She won't come out until she has broken through?" Since he could not meet Gan Ru Yan, there was nothing he could do even though he knew Ke'er and their daughter were the cultivation place of the Sect Leader of Fire Worship Sect. 'It seems like I'll have to think of another way...'

In order to avoid suspicion, after Duan Ling Tian bade farewell to Tang Xuan, he did not turn to look back at all.

"Am I overthinking things?" There was nothing wrong with Duan Ling Tian's words and actions but there was a frown on Tang Xuan's face. "I must be overthinking things. The only connections are he knows Gan Ru Yan and he's from the Lower Province of the Dao Martial Saint Land."

With Tang Xuan's Divine Consciousness covering all of the Fire Worship Sect, he knew that Duan Ling Tian had gone to the Enforcement Hall to look for Gan Ru Yan. He was instantly reminded of the Saint Girl and her man who was from the Lower Province. Moreover, when he first met Duan Ling Tian, he noticed that the Saint Girl's daughter's eyes bore some resemblance to Duan Ling Tian's eyes.

Tang Xuan did not think much of it until his Divine Consciousness noticed that Duan Ling Tian had gone to the Enforcement Hall to look for Gan Ru Yan. "Don't tell me Duan Ling Tian is the Saint Girl's man who had also come from the Lower Province?"
