"No…" When Chen An heard what Ke Zheng said to Chen Wei, he who wasn't facing Chen Wei and was incapable of sending a voice transmission to Chen Wei spoke out with the intention of stopping Chen Wei.
Duan Ling Tian who was prepared since long ago raised his hand and swung out with a slap, striking Chen An to the point he became dizzy. "Shut up! I'll beat you until your head is swollen if you speak another word!"
"You!!" Chen Wei's face went grim when he saw Duan Ling Tian treating his younger brother like that, and his eyes went crimson, yet was utterly unable to utilize strength and could only watch idly by.
"Father, Master, quickly stop him!" Chen Wei sought for help from Chen Dong and Ke Zheng, yet he quickly noticed that not matter if it was his father or master, they didn't have any intention of helping Chen An.
For a time, he vaguely realized that the atmosphere was strange.
"Father, what happened?" Chen Wei looked at Chen Dong with a perplexed expression.
"Wei, answer your Master." Chen Dong spoke with a serious expression.
Only now did Chen Wei notice that his master was looking at him with a solemn expression, and he instantly didn't dare dally as he spoke of everything Chen An had told him since he just arrived home.
"Not only has that Duan Ling Tian impersonated a disciple of our Five Element Sect's Wood Peak to seize women and bully others, he even forcefully took my younger brother's fiancée before suppressing the Ye Clan and making the Ye Clan break off the engagement with our Chen Clan, causing our Chen Clan to lose face greatly!" Chen Wei looked at Duan Ling Tian and gnashed his teeth as he said, "So, it was I that wanted to teach him a lesson, and it has nothing to do with Little An! Moreover, Master, don't you think that he ought to be taught a lesson?"
"Impersonated a disciple of my Wood Peak?" Ke Zheng's face sank after he heard Chen Wei, and then he looked at Duan Ling Tian with a cold and indifferent gaze. "How do you explain that?"
"Explain?" Duan Ling Tian started laughing as he glanced indifferently at Ke Zheng and said, "Elder Ke, truthfully speaking, I utterly didn't know of the existence of the Five Element Sect before I helped the Ye Clan break off the engagement with the Chen Clan, let alone the Wood Peak."
"As for the reason I came to break off the engagement with the Chen Clan, Patriarch Chen knows clearly about it… If Patriarch Chen says he doesn't know, then I've brought the person concerned." When he spoke up to here, Duan Ling Tian looked at Ye Xuan who was behind Ye Ting. "Little Xuan, come here."
Ye Xuan stood by Duan Ling Tian's obediently as she looked timidly at Ke Zheng.
To her, the elder of the Five Element Sect was an existence that was far out of her reach and could only be looked up to, and her heard was filled with a perturbed feeling when facing him.
"There's no need for Young Miss Ye to personally speak of this matter." Chen Dong took a deep breath before explaining the marriage agreement between the Ye Clan that was a farce to Ke Zheng, and at the same time, he spoke of all the misdeeds of his youngest son during these past few years.
"So, it was this unfilial son of mine that was unworthy of the Ye Clan's Young Miss! It was understandable that Brother Ling Tian came to our Chen Clan to break off the engagement, and he'd conducted himself frankly and openly. He only came for the sake of repaying the Ye Clan's Young Miss's life saving grace, and he didn't want anything else." When he spoke up to here, Chen Dong looked angrily at Chen Wei who had his back to him, and he said with a low voice, "Yet never had I imagined that this unfilial son of mine would actually give a false account to Chen Wei… The person that bullied others and seized women was obviously him, yet it had become Brother Ling Tian when he spoke of it!"
"As for impersonating a disciple of the Five Element Sect's Wood Peak, it was surely he who slandered Brother Ling Tian for the sake of infuriating Wei and making Wei stand up for him!" As Chen Dong finished speaking, he was boiling with rage, and his clothed fluttered without the wind.
"What?!" Chen Wei's face went pale when he heard his father, and he looked at Chen An's figure with disbelief as he muttered. "It was Little An… When did Little An become like this? Why did Little An become like this?!"
"No! Impossible! Impossible!!" Chen Wei was unable to accept the fact that his younger brother was a profligate disciple of the clan, and frequently bullied others and seized women. In the end, he was unable to catch his breath, causing his vital energy and blood to move in reverse, and he fainted once more.
"Third Elder, please take the Eldest Young Master to go rest." Chen Dong sighed, and then he looked at Chen Lei who stood silently at the side and gestured to him.
"Yes." Chen Lei replied respectfully before carrying the unconscious Chen Wei away.
"Looks like I was mistaken about you." Ke Zhen looked at Duan Ling Tian and squeezed out a slight smile that seemed to be amiable. "You're called Duan Ling Tian?"
"Yes." Duan Ling Tian nodded.
"Good, good." Ke Zheng sized up Duan Ling Tian from top to bottom as he revealed a satisfied smile.
"Elder Ke, he's the young brother I mentioned to you earlier." Seeming to have discerned Ke Zheng's interest towards Duan Ling Tian, the nearby Chen Dong said with a light smile, "On that day, for the sake of repaying Young Miss Ye's life saving grace, he trespassed into our Chen Clan Estate to defeat me before defeating our Chen Clan's Supreme Elder and broke off the absurd engagement for the Ye Clan."
"It's rare that one is able to go to such lengths for the sake of repaying a life saving grace." The gaze Ke Zheng shot at Duan Ling Tian became even more satisfied, as he was able to discern from this that there was utterly no problem with Duan Ling Tian's character, and his worries earlier were completely unnecessary.
Most importantly, Duan Ling Tian's natural talent in the Martial Dao could truly be said to be terrifying!
A young man that looked to be merely around the age of 25 was actually capable of defeating the Chen Clan's Supreme Elder, an existence at the sixth level of the Void Interpretation Stage.
Even if it was their Five Element Sect, it didn't possess such an outstanding disciple!
"Perhaps he's an opportunity for our Wood Peak to turn its situation around!" Ke Zheng's gaze became slightly excited as he looked at Duan Ling Tian, and he seemed to have seen his Wood Peak rising and the members of the other three peaks being shocked to the extreme.
"Patriarch Chen, I'll be embarrassed if you continue praising me." Duan Ling Tian shook his head and smiled, and then he threw Chen An on the ground with a raise of his hand before a sharp light flashed within his eyes. "Patriarch Chen, how do you intend to deal with the matter this time?"
As soon as Duan Ling Tian said this, Ke Zheng looked at Chen Dong as well, and his gaze became slightly fierce.
Obviously, this elder of the Five Element Sect detested Chen An's despicable conduct, especially since Chen An had led his own brother which was Ke Zheng's disciple into a trap, causing Ke Zheng to be even more infuriated.
But as the saying goes, even an upright family finds it hard to deal with a problem in the family. He knew clearly in his heart that he was an outsider to the Chen Clan in the end, and it wasn't convenient for him to interfere in this matter.
"Brother Duan, don't worry. I'll give both you and Elder Ke a satisfying explanation!" Chen Dong took a deep breath and seemed to have made some sort of decision.
"Father, I know my mistakes! I know my mistakes! Forgive me this time, forgive me this time!" When he saw Chen Dong's fierce gaze that swept over, Chen An seemed to have realized what was about to happen, and he couldn't help but shudder as he endlessly begged for mercy with a trembling voice.
But unfortunately, the fierceness in Chen Dong's eyes didn't seem to show any signs of weakening when facing Chen An's begging. Perhaps he'd already given up on this youngest son of his.
Subsequently, under Duan Ling Tian's astonished gaze, Chen Dong arrived before Chen An before knocking out Chen An who revealed an expression of despair and lay limply on the ground.
Four successive sounds of bones shattering sounded out and caused a chill to run down everyone's spine. Chen Dong had completely shattered the limbs of Chen An with the raise of his hand.
He'd struck so ruthlessly that even with a grade one Life Recovery Pill, it would forever be impossible for Chen An's four limbs to recover.
"From today onward, this unfilial son of mine will stay in the Chen Clan. The Chen Clan will allow him to lay peacefully on the bed and live through his entire life, and it won't allow him to go out and cause trouble." Chen Dong's cold and indifferent voice sounded out, and it fully displayed his resolution.
As the saying goes, even a vicious tiger wouldn't eat its cubs. Chen Dong had no way to back down now, so he had to make a decision.
Otherwise, he didn't know what trouble his younger son would cause in the future.
The elders of the Chen Clan sighed, yet none of them felt Chen An was pitiable. As far as they were concerned, this was perhaps the best end for Chen An.
"Big Brother Duan, let's go home." Ye Xuan's beautiful face went pale from terror since long ago when the sounds of bones shattering sounded out, and she couldn't help but close her eyes and not dare look at it.
"Alright." Duan Ling Tian smiled lightly as he nodded, and then he held Ye Xuan's hand before bidding farewell to Chen Dong and Ke Zheng. "Patriarch Chen, Elder Ke. Since this matter is resolved, I'll be returning first…" As soon as he finished speaking, Duan Ling Tian soared up into the sky with Ye Xuan, and he flashed out of the Chen Clan Audience Hall with Ye Ting.
"Brother Duan!" Chen Dong was instantly anxious when he saw Duan Ling Tian wanted to leave as he'd boasted before Ke Zheng earlier that he would introduce Duan Ling Tian to Ke Zheng.
"Patriarch Chen, is there something you need?" Duan Ling Tian stopped in midair and asked with a perplexed expression.
"It isn't I that needs something but Elder Ke. I wonder if Brother Duan is interested…" Chen Dong looked at Duan Ling Tian and wanted to ask Duan Ling Tian if he was interested in joining the Five Element Sect, yet he wasn't able to finish speaking when he was interrupted by Duan Ling Tian.
"Patriarch Chen wants to ask me if I'm interested in joining the Five Element Sect?"
"Exactly!" Chen Dong nodded, and he didn't expect that Duan Ling Tian would actually be able to guess what he thought.
"I can." Duan Ling Tian didn't beat around the bush and nodded, and then he looked at Ke Zheng who revealed an excited expression upon hearing what he said and smiled lightly. "Of course, the precondition is that Elder Ke is satisfied."
"I'm satisfied, I'm satisfied!" Ke Zheng hurriedly nodded as a smile bloomed on his face, and he didn't have the slightest bearing of an expert at the Void Transformation Stage.
"Big Brother Duan, you… You're going to the Five Element Sect?" Ye Xuan's pretty face went slightly pale as she bit on her lips, and her beautiful eyes held tears and were filled with unwillingness.
"Little Xuan, if you're willing, then follow me to the Five Element Sect… I think that Elder Ke will probably not refuse, right?" Duan Ling Tian glanced deeply at Ke Zheng as he asked.
"Of course not!" Ke Zheng spoke out hastily. After he approved of Duan Ling Tian's character, he was filled with interest towards this young man with monstrous natural talent, and he wished for nothing more than to bring the young man back to the Five Element Sect and the Wood Peak.
Even though Duan Ling Tian's current request was going slightly too far, that was only towards ordinary people, and a monstrous martial artist like Duan Ling Tian naturally obtained a different treatment.
"I… I can go to the Five Element Sect?" Ye Xuan couldn't help but be stunned when she heard Duan Ling Tian, and after she heard Ke Zheng's reply, at the same time that her beautiful face was dumbstruck, it revealed an expression of disbelief.
"Elder Ke, can my daughter really join the Five Element Sect?" Ye Ting was similarly stunned when he heard Ke Zhen, and he fiercely gulped down a mouthful of saliva before asking with disbelief.
