Liu Dong Ping could not produce 100,000 prominent Celestial Stones. It would still be impossible to come up with this number of Celestial Stones even if all the clan members contributed. Well, not unless he sold off some of their more lucrative businesses. However, how could he be willing to do something like this?
Duan Ling Tian asked with a faint smile on his face, "If I refuse, what are you going to do, Clan Leader Liu?"
Upon hearing this, Liu Dong Ping felt an ominous feeling rise in his heart. He thought to himself, 'It really seems like I can't afford to offend this young man…' Feeling uneasy, he decided to compromise. "Sir, what about 3,000 prominent Celestial Stones? I only have 3,000 prominent Celestial Stones! I can't give you any more."
Duan Ling Tian looked at Liu Zuo Lin with killing intent as he said flippantly, "Well, if that's the case, you leave me with no choice but to kill your son..."
"Father!" Liu Zuo Lin cried out fearfully. He quickly scrambled and hid behind Liu Dong Ping as though Liu Dong Ping was his last lifeline. "Father, I don't want to die… I don't want to die!"
Liu Dong Ping glared at Duan Ling Tian and harshly said, "Sir, don't push your luck!" Although he was disappointed in his son, he, naturally, did not want his son to come to harm. Moreover, Liu Zuo Lin was his only son.
"Don't push my luck?" Duan Ling Tian smirked. "Clan Leader Liu, for your own sake and for the clan's sake, I advise you to hand your son over. I have unfinished business with him."
Liu Dong Ping snorted coldly. He raised his hand that was filled with jade tokens and injected Celestial Origin Energy into them. The jade tokens then flew in all directions in the mansion.
"Communication Celestial Talismans?" Duan Ling Tian could have easily intercepted all of the talismans, but he did not think it was necessary to do so. He stared at Liu Dong Ping and said, "I thought you're a wise man. However, it looks like you're just an overprotective fool. Prepare to die with your son and your entire clan!"
"If I were you I would leave immediately and stop talking nonsense here. When the clan's powerhouses arrive, it'll be too late for you to leave!" Liu Dong Ping replied calmly as killing intent surged from his body. Although he was the clan leader, he was not the strongest in the clan. There were three Supreme Elders who were stronger than him in the clan. One of them was also an inner-estate elder in the County Governor's estate. He was ranked third among the inner-estate elders in the estate.
"Such confidence… I'd love to see how your people are going to stop me!" Duan Ling Tian grinned when he heard Liu Dong Ping's words, disregarding the threats.
They waited for the powerhouses to come, and it felt like years to the father and son.
Liu Dong Ping asked angrily through Voice Transmission, "You unfilial son! Who the hell did you offend?"
"I have no idea, father..." Liu Zuo Lin replied. An idea suddenly appeared in his mind, and he said, "Should I… tell mother about this? Although the Pang family is weak, their ancestor is the strongest powerhouse below Great Overarching Golden Celestials in Nine Specters County. He's mother's uncle, and he loves her dearly and treats her like his biological daughter. He won't refuse her request, right?" His eyes gleamed brightly now that he had found another lifeline.
"Fine, tell her about this. Hopefully, he's willing to teach this brat a lesson!" Liu Dong Ping replied. His fear seemed to have subsided as he looked at Duan Ling Tian again.
Liu Zuo Lin raised his hand and produced another Communication Celestial Talisman.
Similar to earlier, Duan Ling Tian did not stop Liu Zuo Lin from calling for help. He was not afraid.
After a few seconds, many figures from all over the mansion began to make their way toward Liu Dong Ping.
The figures consisted of men of varying ages. There were old men, middle-aged men, and young men. Regardless, all of them were stronger than the ordinary Golden Celestial.
"What's going on, clan leader?"
"Who dares to come and look for trouble?"
Most of them looked at Duan Ling Tian with hostility brimming in their eyes as though he had murdered their family.
Liu Dong Ping answered solemnly, "This person murdered Elder Liu Li, and he's now after my son's life!"
"He killed Elder Liu Li? Damn it! You're not leaving here alive, brat!"
"You must pay with your life!"
The elders of the Liu Clan were filled with self-righteous indignation. However, none of them made a move. They were no fools. Since the purple-clad young man was still alive, and the clan leader had summoned them, it meant the clan leader could not deal with him. Since they were weaker than Liu Dong Ping, it would only be suicidal if they were to make a move now.
Two people arrived on the scene. One was an old man with grey hair, and the other was a middle-aged man with an average built.
"Greetings, Supreme Elders!" The people from the Liu clan greeted the two newcomers in unison.
"What's going on, Dong Ping?" the old man asked. He was dressed in a grey robe and looked exceptionally young for his age.
"Second uncle, it's like this..." Liu Dong Ping recounted what happened in a respectful tone. He had spoken honestly so everyone knew it was Liu Zuo Lin who caused this trouble.
"This purple-clad young man isn't a simple person. Otherwise, he wouldn't have waited for us to arrive. Moreover, he doesn't seem to care even after the Supreme Elders have arrived. He doesn't seem afraid." The elders felt uneasy.
The middle-aged man, a Supreme Elder in the Liu clan, glanced at Duan Ling Tian coldly and said, "I don't care who you are or where you came from. The Nine Specters County is our territory. If you know what's good for you, you'd leave."
"Well, what if I don't know what's good for me?" Duan Ling Tian retorted.
"Then, you can only die here!" The middle-aged man's expression darkened as he looked at Duan Ling Tian as though he was looking at a dead man walking. Not only was he a Supreme Elder in the Liu clan, but he was also a primitive Celestial Alchemist. Even Tian Ji Yu, the County Governor of Nine Specters County, would give him a measure of respect as a Celestial Alchemist. After all, if he went all out, he was capable of dying together with a Great Overarching Golden Celestial. He could detonate his Celestial Fire after all. For this reason, he was very arrogant.
"Is that so?" Duan Ling Tian replied coldly. His eyes flashed with killing intent as he made his move.
Thousands of sword rays surged out from Duan Ling Tian's body and converged into a sword Formation. The sword Formation swept toward the middle-aged man. This time Duan Ling Tian did not use the Devata Artifact, the Seven Orifices Exquisite Sword. He only used a primitive Celestial Sword. Even then, his speed was lightning fast. Those weaker than Great Overarching Golden Celestials were no match for him at all.
In just a blink of an eye, the middle-aged man, a Supreme Elder and Celestial Alchemist in the Liu clan, who was an Indigo Sun Golden Celestial was shrouded by the sword Formation, leaving his body riddled with holes. Let alone detonating his Celestial Fire, he did not even have time to react.
