Under Duan Ling Tian’s watchful eyes, a figure finally appeared high in the sky.
The Palace Master of Heaven Palace was an old man with a medium build. Apart from his white eyebrows, he had a tuft of goatee as well. He had a kind face, but his eyes gleamed knowingly as though he was not a simple as he seemed to be.
The Palace Master of Heaven Palace dressed in a long grey robe stood still as the breeze brushed past him. However, his robe remained still.
“You’re Ling Tian?” Under the watchful gaze of the others, the Palace Master of Heaven Palace looked at Duan Ling Tian. His bright eyes contained a hint of warmth as he looked at him.
“Palace Master.” Duan Ling Tian nodded slightly.
“Not bad.” The Palace Master of Heaven Palace nodded as a slight smile appeared on his face. Then, he looked away before he calmly announced, “Since everyone’s here, let’s make our move!”
At once, under the guidance of the Palace Master of Heaven Palace, Vice Palace Master Xiao Yi, and his disciple, Wang Pi, Duan Ling Tian, and the others followed closely behind Xiao Yi and Wang Pi as they headed toward the Main Mansion.
The entrance of the Mystical Sky Mansion’s Saint Martial Secret Zone was in the Main Mansion.
“Looks like Lord Palace Master has high regard for Ling Tian as well.”
“That’s right! There are so many Heaven Palace’s disciples, but he only greeted Ling Tian. He didn’t even bother with the others, including Zhao Ji.”
“As expected from the strongest person among the younger generation in our Mystical Sky Mansion! He’s indeed extraordinary!”
Not only those Heaven Palace’s disciples who came to watch the fun on the Heaven Palace’s summit were whispering among themselves, but many of those Heaven Palace’s disciples who were also heading to the Main Mansion were also whispering among themselves.
When the others heard the discussion, they were unaffected. However, Zhao Ji’s expression had turned grim.
He, Zhao Ji, was the son of the Vice Palace Master of Mystical Sky Mansion after all. His grandfather was one of the two great Guardians of the Mystical Sky Mansion.
If it was before, everyone’s eyes would be on him since he was the special and privileged one. However, after Duan Ling Tian had appeared, he had become someone that everybody ignored. For someone as prideful as he was, this was completely unacceptable. Due to this reason, when Zhao Ji looked at Duan Ling Tian, the hatred in his eyes intensified.
Although Duan Ling Tian did not bother with Zhao Ji’s gaze. He could still sense it.
To him, the current Zhao Ji was just like a crazy dog by the roadside that would bite people at random. He would not stoop so low as to get even with a crazy dog.
It was fortunate Zhao Ji was unaware of Duan Ling Tian’s thoughts. Otherwise, he would be so furious he would probably throw up three liters of blood.
Under the guidance of the Palace Master of Heaven Palace, Duan Ling Tian and the others arrived at a vast space behind the Main Mansion. When they arrived, they saw a group of people who had arrived earlier. Duan Ling Tian had some impression of the person standing behind the person at the lead. It was none other than the Vice Palace Master of Yellow Palace.
“Senior Brother Zhu, your Heaven Palace is here early.” There was no need to guess the identity of the person in the lead. One could easily tell it was the Palace Master of the Yellow Palace. When he saw the group of people from Heaven Palace, he took the initiative to greet them first.
The person whom he greeted was none other than Zhu Lu Qi, the Palace Master of Heaven Palace.
“Junior Brother Qian, your Yellow Palace is even earlier than us.” Faced with Qian Ping Sheng, the Palace Master of Yellow Palace, Zhu Lu Qi smiled nonchalantly.
“This must be Ling Tian, right? I’ve long heard about you, and now that I finally meet you, I have to say you’re indeed a man with a striking appearance” Soon after, Qian Ping Sheng shifted his attention to Duan Ling Tian. Although he had not seen Duan Ling Tian before, the Vice Palace Master standing behind him had seen Duan Ling Tian before. He could easily tell who Ling Tian was from the Vice Palace Master.
“Thank you for your compliment, Palace Master Qian.” The other party was the Palace Master of Yellow Palace after all. Due to this reason, Duan Ling Tian was courteous and smiled in response.
When Zhao Ji saw this, he was so jealous that his eyes turned bloodshot immediately. At any rate, he, Zhao Ji, was the son of the Vice Palace Master and the grandson of the Guardian. However, the Palace Master of Yellow Palace seemed as though he did not notice him at all. Instead, he was paying attention to a country boy who had appeared out of nowhere.
Although Zhao Ji was angry at the Palace Master of Yellow Palace’s action, he cast all his anger Duan Ling Tian instead.
Not only was the Palace Master of Yellow Palace the leader of one of the palaces in the Mystical Sky Mansion, but he was also a Vice Mansion Master as well. He was in no way inferior to his father in terms of position.
Not only that, but his father’s position was actually much more inferior if one were to get into it.
In the Mystical Sky Mansion, the four Palace Masters of the Heaven, Earth, Mystical, and Yellow Palaces were also the Vice Mansion Masters. Apart from protecting the Mystical Sky Mansion, they had to shoulder the responsibility of managing the four palaces.
The four palaces were the foundation of the Mystical Sky Mansion so mishap was not allowed. Due to this reason, these responsibilities were given to the four Vice Mansion Masters who were the most capable and powerful.
These four Palace Masters were people in the same generation as Zhao Ji’s grandfather. Although they were not as powerful as Zhao Ji’s grandfather, they were still more powerful than Zhao Ji’s father.
Among the four palace’s Palace Masters, Zhu Lu Qi, the Palace Master of Heaven Palace, was the most capable and powerful.
In the Mystical Sky Mansion, Zhu Lu Qi was also widely acknowledged as the fourth most powerful person in the Mystical Sky Mansion!
His prowess was only inferior to the Mansion Master and the two great Guardians.
“How famous of you! To think that even the Palace Master of Yellow Palace would take the initiative to greet you.” Wang Fei Xuan’s voice resonated in Duan Ling Tian’s ears.
If it was before, Wang Fei Xuan’s tone would have been sour when she said such words. However, currently, she was sincerely happy for Duan Ling Tian.
Ten days ago, on the summit of Heaven Palace, Duan Ling Tian was like her guardian angel as he shielded her when faced with the two Eminent Saint Stage powerhouses. At that moment, Duan Ling Tian’s action had also touched the softest spot in the depth of her heart. Nobody had ever touched that place before.
Duan Ling Tian was the first person to touch that place. Perhaps, he might be the only man she meets that would touch that place in her heart.
‘Ling Tian, one day, I’ll definitely enter your heart and become your woman!’ Although Wang Fei Xuan was a straightforward woman, her beautiful and delicate cheeks could not help but turn red when this thought appeared in her mind.
Naturally, Duan Ling Tian was unaware of all of this. He merely treated Wang Fei Xuan as a friend.
Soon after, people from the Earth and Mystical Palaces had also arrived one after another and the two people in the lead were clearly the Palace Masters of the Earth Palace and Mystical Palace.
After they arrived, they greeted the Palace Masters of Heaven Palace and Yellow Palace before they looked at Duan Ling Tian curiously. They were curious about this Ling Tian who was widely acknowledged as the strongest person among the younger generation in the Mystical Sky Mansion not long after he entered the Mystical Sky Mansion.
Now that they had seen the person in real life, they could not help but muse why such an extraordinary genius did not enter their palaces.
Seeing how the Palace Masters from Earth Palace and Mystical Palace were also eager to greet Duan Ling Tian, Zhao Ji was so furious that his body began to tremble. It felt as though his heart was about to burst.
“There’s exactly thirty people.” Duan Ling Tian glanced at the Earth, Mystical, and Yellow Palaces’ groups and saw there was a total of 20 Saint Stage disciples from the three palaces. Adding the ten people from Heaven Palace, there were exactly thirty people.
At this moment, the other Saint Stage disciples from the other three palaces also sized Duan Ling Tian up.
There was a variety of expressions on these people faces. Some of them were wary, some were jealous and envious.
Whoosh! Whoosh! Whoosh!
As the four palaces’ Palace Masters turned around in unison to look at the distant sky, Duan Ling Tian and the others turned to look as well.
The distant sky was calm and tranquil initially. However, after a few moments, the clouds began to churn. In the end, several figures emerged from it.
One person was walking in the lead while four people followed behind him.
The person in the lead was wearing a long white robe that was edged in gold. He was a middle-aged man whose complexion was as clear as jade. As he flew toward them, the air in the surrounding seemed to tremble. With every step he took, it seemed as though he was walking on a road that only belonged to him. Apart from that, his body exuded a peerless dignified and majestic aura. This aura was much stronger compared to the four Palace Masters.
His appearance was similar to a king walking up to his throne.
There was no need for an introduction or explanation, Duan Ling Tian and some others who had not seen this middle-aged man before could guess his identity. He was the Mansion Master of Mystical Sky Mansion, Meng Qing!
As the leader of a quasi third-rate force, Meng Qing’s fame was widely spread in the Lower Province of the Dao Martial Saint Land. Before Duan Ling Tian came to the Mystical Sky Mansion, he had already heard of him and knew he was an elite powerhouse in the Lower Province of the Dao Martial Saint Land. He was so strong that he was only inferior to the Leader of the Mountainshade Black Market and the Mansion Master of Azure Cloud Mansion.
Such a person would be able to make the Lower Province of the Dao Martial Saint Land quake with just a stomp of his feet.
For this reason, Duan Ling Tian put away his playful attitude and put on a solemn expression.
However, when he saw one of the four people behind Meng Qing, he could not help but feel stunned. ‘Senior Brother Gu Li? W-why is he here? Moreover, he even came with Lord Mansion Master.’
Duan Ling Tian had long noticed although the surrounding was vast, he did not see anyone else. He could tell this place was restricted, and most people were not allowed here. Otherwise, there would be a lot of people who would come to watch the show.
He did not think he would be able to see Gu Li here. It did not even cross his mind that Gu Li would come with Mansion Master Meng Qing.
“Junior Brother Ling Tian.” At this moment, Gu Li’s Voice Transmission resonated in his ears in a timely manner.
“Senior Brother Gu Li, why are you here? Moreover, you even came with the Mansion Master,” Duan Ling Tian asked through Voice Transmission, slightly stunned.
Gu Li replied through Voice Transmission, “In fact, this is all thanks to you.”
“Me?” Duan Ling Tian was confused.
“It was because of your speculation about Xu Jing, the Young Mansion Master of the Rising Sky Mansion, and your permission for me to report it to the Mansion Master that he allowed me to come and watch the show on the day of the opening of the Saint Martial Secret Zone,” Gu Li replied through Voice Transmission.
“No wonder.” Duan Ling Tian finally understood.
“Huh?” At this moment, Duan Ling Tian discovered that one of the three men following behind Mansion Master Meng Qing was staring at him with a hostile gaze.
