Chapter 1759: Gu Ci Yun
Translator: EndlessFantasy Translation Editor: EndlessFantasy Translation
In the Mystical Sky Mansion, although there no Divine Saint Stage powerhouses who specialized in cultivating Spiritual Energy and Divine Consciousness, there was no lack of Divine Saint Stage powerhouses at all. For this reason, performing the Soul Searching Secret Tactic was not an issue for the Mystical Sky Mansion.
“However, the Saint Martial Secret Zone will be opened in ten days’ time… Even if the Mystical Sky Mansion wants to make their move on the Rising Sky Mansion, I’m afraid it would have to wait until we come out from the Saint Martial Secret Zone.” The opening of the Saint Martial Secret Zone would be personally presided by the Mansion Master of Mystical Sky Mansion.
Set aside the fact that the Mystical Sky Mansion would not be able to do anything to the Rising Sky Mansion due to the Saint Martial Secret Zone’s opening, the Mystical Sky Mansion would also need to spend some time to come up with a strategy to deal with the Rising Sky Mansion.
Although the Rising Sky Mansion was inferior to the Mystical Sky Mansion in terms of strength, as a fourth-rate force, it was quite powerful as well.
If the Mystical Sky Mansion confronted them directly, the Mystical Sky Mansion would definitely win, but they would suffer heavy losses as well. Naturally, it still would not affect the foundation of the Mystical Sky Mansion.
However, if the Mystical Sky Mansion was well prepared, it would be able to deal with the Rising Sky Mansion with minimal damage on their side!
This was the prowess of a quasi third-rate force!
“Wait a minute!” Just as Duan Ling Tian extended one leg into his room, a voice resonated from behind him. It was a female voice. Without even the need to turn around, he knew whose voice it was. It was none other than Wang Fei Xuan.
“Is there any matter?” Duan Ling Tian turned around and smiled as he looked at her.
After the incident today, Duan Ling Tian had completely regarded Wang Fei Xuan as his friend in his heart.
Although she was a woman, her accomplishments had surpassed many men.
When faced with Zhao Bai Ju and Zhao Hei Tu, Wang Fei Xuan already knew she was not their match, but she still stepped out to defend him.
When Wang Fei Xuan saw Duan Ling Tian smiling at her, her delicate face flushed immediately. Naturally, she had noticed the change in Duan Ling Tian’s treatment of her. This was undoubtedly something worth being happy about.
“Actually, it’s not an important matter. I just want to ask you if you knew Senior Brother Gu Li prior to this?” Wang Fei Xuan asked.
“No.” Duan Ling Tian shook his head.
“Then, does this mean what Senior Brother Gu Li said was true? That he didn’t know you at all prior to today? And that the reason he helped you was because of your innate talent, and he likes your character?” Wang Fei Xuan believed Duan Ling Tian’s words. Due to this, her eyes widened, and she had a shocked expression on her face.
“Well, it’s not entirely because of that.” Duan Ling Tian did not intend to hide the truth from Wang Fei Xuan. “You must remember the senior who guards the Heaven Palace’s Spirit Pool, right? He’s Senior Brother Gu Li’s father’s Master. This makes him Senior Brother Gu Li’s Grand Master. It’s because that senior mentioned me to Senior Brother Gu Li and praised me that he became curious about me. Today, he came to see me in action. When he appeared to help me, it was also because he has taken a liking to my character.” Duan Ling Tian finished his sentence in one breath.
“That senior is actually Guardian Gu’s Master?” When Wang Fei Xuan heard his words, she could not help but gasp. Her voice trembled when she spoke. It was obvious she was greatly surprised.
Guardian Gu was Gu Li’s father. He was also one of the two great Guardians of the Mystical Sky Mansion.
In the Mystical Sky Mansion, the two great Guardians’ positions and strength were only inferior to the Mansion Master.
After a while, Wang Fei Xuan finally returned to her senses. She looked at Duan Ling Tian again and said, “There’s another reason I came looking for you… It’s that other person from the Sky Hurdle Mansion. Similar to Ren Fei, he didn’t get the spot to enter the Saint Martial Secret Zone. For this reason, I’m afraid you won’t be able to return the favor you owe their senior.”
“Alright.” Duan Ling Tian nodded. He was not entirely surprised by this since he had his doubts if the other person from the Sky Hurdle Mansion would be able to earn a spot to enter the Saint Martial Secret Zone.
“I only came to inform you of this, I won’t bother you anymore. Cultivate properly, and I’ll see you in ten days’ time.” Wang Fei Xuan bade farewell to Duan Ling Tian after she finished telling him the information she had.
Duan Ling Tian also returned to his own room and entered the third level of the Seven Treasures Exquisite Pagoda immediately. Ten days outside was equivalent to fifty days inside the third level of the Seven Treasures Exquisite Pagoda. That was almost two months’ time.
Two months were enough for Duan Ling Tian to further elevate his cultivation base and comprehend the Supreme Sword Dao Mental Cultivation Method, the Sovereign Heart Sword.
While Duan Ling Tian was cultivating, the seemingly tranquil on the surface Mystical Sky Mansion was seething with chaos underneath.
After Gu Li parted ways with Duan Ling Tian, he went to look for his father, Gu Ci Yun, one of the two great Guardians of the Mystical Sky Mansion.
“Li’er, is there a reason you came looking for me in such a rush?” If another person had disrupted his cultivation like that, he would be furious. However, since the person who interrupted his cultivation was his only son, not only was he not angry, but he spoke to him warmly with a smile on his face.
“Father, I don’t mean to interrupt your cultivation. However, there’s a matter that’s extremely important that I need to speak to you about.” When Gu Li reached the end of his sentence, his expression was solemn and earnest.
“Oh? What’s the matter?” Gu Ci Yun knew his only son very well. If it was not an important matter, his expression would not be this solemn.
Perhaps, Gu Ci Yun was affected by Gu Li because his expression turned grim.
Faced with his own father, Gu Li who had Duan Ling Tian’s permission did not hold back and told his father everything that Duan Ling Tian had told him, including his speculation.
“Xu Jing, the Young Mansion Master of Rising Sky Mansion? A Devil Dao cultivation technique that contains the Soul Congregation technique?” Gu Ci Yun narrowed his eyes when he heard Gu Li’s words.
As one of the Mystical Sky Mansion’s two great Guardians and Gu Li’s father, Gu Ci Yun, naturally, had a wider knowledge than Gu Li.
He also knew more about the Soul Congregation technique. He knew that it was a technique that could grant a Devil Cultivator a second life.
In the Dao Martial Saint Land, the Devil Dao Cultivation Methods that contained Soul Congregation technique were extremely rare. Moreover, it was almost impossible to be found in the Lower Province. They were usually found in the Upper Province.
However, he just found out from his son that such a Devil Dao Cultivation Method had appeared in the Lower Province of the Dao Martial Saint Land.
Gu Ci Yun’s breathing immediately quickened.
If such an evil and inhumane Devil Dao Cultivation Method really existed here, it had to be destroyed immediately.
If it was not evil or inhumane, it would undoubtedly be a great gain for the Mystical Sky Mansion if they obtained it.
Perhaps the Mystical Sky Mansion would be able to produce many powerful Devil Cultivators through this Devil Dao Cultivation Method in the future. They might even be able to rise to the level of the Mountainshade Black Market and the Azure Cloud Mansion and become a force that could stand at the summit of the Lower Province of the Dao Martial Saint Land.
To an ordinary person, a quasi third-rate force was a force that stood at the summit of the Lower Province of the Dao Martial Saint Land.
However, in actual fact, only two forces were able to stand at the summit of the Lower Province of the Dao Martial Saint Land, and it was the Mountainshade Black Market and the Azure Cloud Mansion.
