Wang Pi’s sudden appearance, naturally, made Wang Fei Xuan pissed. Although she was angry, she did not dare to show it at all.
Wang Pi was the direct disciple of the Vice Palace Master of Heaven Palace no matter what. Although she was the biological granddaughter of the Mansion Master of the Tyrannic Saber Mansion, outside of the mansion, she could not compare to Wang Pi at all in terms of identity and position. The others, naturally, would fear Wang Pi more. Moreover, they were at Heaven Palace. Unless it was absolutely necessary, she did not want to offend him.
“I’ll come and take a look as well.” When Wang Fei Xuan saw how Duan Ling Tian was preparing to leave with Wang Pi, she quickly rose up into the sky and followed them. She positioned herself next to Duan Ling Tian.
At this moment, Duan Ling Tian could faintly sense Wang Pi’s knowing look.
“Junior Brother Ling Tian, this Great Young Miss Wang seems to be very interested in you. Maybe you should just accept her, if you do, you’ll become the Young Master of Tyrannic Saber Mansion.” At this moment, Wang Pi’s voice rang in Duan Ling Tian’s ears.
“Senior Brother Wang Pi, please don’t crack such a joke. I already have two fiancées and one girlfriend.” Although he knew Wang Pi was teasing him, Duan Ling Tian still quickly explained himself to avoid any misunderstandings.
“That’s only three women… With your innate talent, your future will be boundless when you’ve grown stronger! At that time, even thirty women wouldn’t be considered too many, let alone three women. In this world where the strong rules, as long as you have power, you’ll attract many women and have as many of them as you want,” Wang Pi continued to say.
Upon hearing that, Duan Ling Tian was rendered speechless. Why did he feel that Wang Pi was even tougher than Wang Fei Xuan?
Soon after, under Wang Pi’s guidance, Duan Ling Tian and Wang Fei Xuan entered the canyon by the side of the steep mountain where the Heaven Palace was located. The entrance to the canyon was a ‘one-line sky’ and could only accommodate one person.
After they entered, the view in front of them was colored in shades of green.
Inside the canyon, it was filled with grass and flowers. The flowers were beautiful, lending the scene a sense of peace and tranquility.
The end of the canyon was covered in mist. Due to the existence of the fog, they could not see anything behind it.
‘Formation?’ As soon as they entered the canyon, Duan Ling Tian could instantly tell the fog was the effect of a Formation. An old man stood guard in front of this Formation.
This old man’s face was filled with wrinkles, and he appeared ancient with his white hair and white brows. He was dressed fully in grey, and he was without an arm. It seemed as though he had blended into the background as he stood there.
Duan Ling Tian could tell this old man was not a simple person with just a glance.
“Senior.” Wang Pi brought the two of them in front of the one-armed old man before bowing respectfully. His eyes were filled with respect as well.
“Senior.” Duan Ling Tian and Wang Fei Xuan quickly bowed as well.
“Hmm.” The one-armed old man nodded indifferently. From the beginning until now, he had a calm expression on his face.
After he responded, he casually glanced at Wang Pi. “Why did you personally come this time? Don’t tell me Little Xiao has managed to secure a rare Saint Stage genius and gave the opportunity to enter the Spirit Pool for cleansing to him?”
“Yes.” Wang Pi nodded before looking at Duan Ling Tian who was standing next to him. “This is Junior Brother Ling Tian. He’s also the Saint Stage genius that master has secured for the Heaven Palace. He’s not even forty years old, but he’s already at the Mastery Refined Saint Stage!”
Not even forty years old but was already at the Mastery Refined Saint Stage!
One must admit that Wang Pi’s words had also shocked the one-armed old man!
At the very least, the one-armed old man who originally looked calm could not help but raise a brow. Then, he shifted his eyes to Duan Ling Tian.
His gaze was lacking in luster, but when it was trained on Duan Ling Tian, it seemed as though he could see through Duan Ling Tian.
However, Duan Ling Tian’s attention was currently not on this. It was similar for Wang Fei Xuan as well.
Earlier, they had clearly heard the one-armed old man addressed Xiao Yi, the Vice Palace Master of Heaven Palace, as Little Xiao.
This was obviously the way a senior would address his junior!
However, Wang Pi as Xiao Yi’s direct disciple seemed unbothered by the way this old man addressed his master as though it was completely normal.
For a moment, Duan Ling Tian turned to look at Wang Fei Xuan just to discover she was looking at him as well.
“Could it be this senior is actually an old powerhouse of the Mystical Sky Mansion?” Wang Fei Xuan asked through Voice Transmission.
“It must be so.” Duan Ling Tian was not too sure either. He immediately asked Wang Pi through Voice Transmission.
Soon after, Wang Pi responded to him, “This is the former Vice Palace Master of our Heaven Palace. In terms of seniority, he’s my master’s Junior Uncle. A long time ago, he lost his arm, and it deeply affected his strength. Due to this reason, he did not follow Senior Ancestor and the others to the Upper Province. By right, I should address him as Junior Granduncle, but he doesn’t want too many people to know his identity so I only address him as Senior. 90% of the disciples in Heaven Palace are unaware of his true identity.”
After hearing Wang Pi’s words, Duan Ling Tian knew that he had guessed correctly. At the same time, he instinctively glanced at the old man’s severed arm.
As far as he knew, even the pills on the Dao Martial Saint Land would not be able to regrow a new arm. The only thing he knew that could regrow a severed arm was the legendary Immortal Spirit Herb. He had obtained one previously, but he had already used it.
“Senior!” At the same time, Duan Ling Tian saw Wang Pi passed an Order Token that was shrouded with a green light to the old man. The word ‘Spirit’ was carved on it. Then, the old man took the Order Token before looking at Duan Ling Tian and said, “Go in.” The old man motioned as he glanced behind.
Just when the old man’s words left his mouth, the gust of mist behind him began to whirl suddenly. In the end, it turned into a whirlpool that looked like it had a door in the air.
Duan Ling Tian knew the old man had activated the Formation.
“Junior Brother Ling Tian, go in. Come out after you’ve finished absorbing the Heaven and Earth Spirit Energy inside.” Wang Pi looked at Duan Ling Tian with a smile.
“Alright.” Duan Ling Tian nodded before he glanced at Wang Fei Xuan and nodded at her lightly before he walked into the gigantic whirlpool that was formed from the mist.
After he had entered the whirlpool with just a stride, Duan Ling Tian felt a powerful energy sucking him in.
After he was sucked in, Duan Ling Tian’s view turned black before light flooded his eyes again. When light appeared again, a scenery that looked like it belonged in another realm appeared before his eyes.
Naturally, this was real and not a drawing.
The scene in front of him was a corner at the side of the canyon that was completely covered by a Formation. It was filled with extremely dense Heaven and Earth Spirit Energy.
However, Duan Ling Tian did not cultivate immediately.
Since it was called the Spirit Pool, it would not be as simple as just cultivating. Although the air in this place was rich in the Heaven and Earth Spirit Energy, it was on par with the Heaven and Earth Spirit Energy in the third level of the Seven Treasures Exquisite Pagoda. To Duan Ling Tian, this was not that awe-inspiring.
As he continued to walk forward and pass through the dense Heaven and Earth Spirit Energy that looked like mist, he eventually saw a small lake.
Inside the lake was filled with milky-white liquid. A shocking amount of Heaven And Earth Spirit Energy was emitting out of it.
“No wonder it’s called the Spirit Pool. The Heaven and Earth Spirit Energy here has all been liquified…” When Duan Ling Tian saw the little lake in front, he instantly figured out how the Spirit Pool got its name.
Although the pool was not big, the liquified Heaven and Earth Spirit Energy in it were extremely amazing. It was much more amazing than what Duan Ling Tian had expected.
“Such a good cultivation environment. If I can’t break through to the Early Refined Saint Stage, I might as well just slam my head on the wall…” If Duan Ling Tian did not have the confidence to break through in the Spirit Pool before this, he was 100% confident he would be able to break through to the Early Refined Saint Stage after witnessing the liquified Heaven and Earth Spirit Energy in the Spirit Pool!
“Once I’ve broken through to the Early Refined Saint Stage, my strength will greatly increase as well. At that time, I’ll be stronger than those powerful geniuses in the younger generation of the Upper Province of the Dao Martial Saint Land!” Duan Ling Tian was very clear that due to how outstanding the Sun True Origin was, coupled with his incredible brute strength, it would not be difficult for him to defeat an ordinary Eminent Saint Stage Martial and Dao Cultivator once he had broken through to the Early Refined Saint Stage.
Moreover, once he had broken through to the Early Refined Saint Stage, basically nobody at the peak of the Eminent Saint Stage would be able to block the Celestial Supreme Treasure, the Jasper Celestial Sword if he wielded it with all his might.
Duan Ling Tian took a deep breath and suppressed the slight excitement in his heart before he leaped into the Spirit Pool.
Duan Ling Tian leaped into the Spirit Pool and disturbed the stillness of the lake as though a huge stone had been thrown in. However, the Spirit Pool regained its stillness again soon after.
At this moment, Duan Ling Tian went to the bottom of the Spirit Pool before sitting cross-legged on the ground. He greedily absorbed the liquified Heaven and Earth Spirit Energy and used the Nine Dragons War Sovereign Technique method as he cultivated.
The nine dragons carried the liquified Heaven and Earth Spirit Energy and made a great Qi cycle before transforming into the Sun True Origin in the end.
Duan Ling Tian felt extremely comfortable cultivating in the Spirit Pool. It was as though his whole body was enveloped by something. It almost felt as though he was back in his mother’s womb.
While Duan Ling Tian was cultivating, Wang Pi brought Wang Fei Xuan away from the valley where the Spirit Pool was located.
The Spirit Pool would only open every six months, and each time, only a person was allowed to enter.
After they came out, the first thing Wang Fei Xuan did was ask, “Senior Brother Wang Pi, will I have the opportunity to enter the Heaven Palace’s Spirit Pool next time?” It was apparent that she cared about this a lot.
Apart from the Saint Martial Secret Zone that would open in over two months’ time, the other reason she had joined the Mystical Sky Mansion this time was also for the Spirit Pool.
At times, she regretted her decision coming to the Heaven Palace. If she had gone to one of the other three palaces, she might have been cultivating in the Spirit Pool at this moment. Only with the aid from the Spirit Pool was she confident she could successfully break through to the Intermediate Refined Saint Stage before she entered the Saint Martial Secret Zone.
Now that she had lost the chance to enter the Spirit Pool, although she still stood a chance in making a breakthrough, the chances were not too high.
“Well, it’s up to you to fight for the chance to enter,” Wang Pi responded to her.
