Translator: EndlessFantasy Translation Editor: EndlessFantasy Translation
Qian Ping Sheng, the Palace Master of Yellow Palace, looked at Wang Fei Xuan and asked curiously, “Did he mention a Divine Ability Relic that was extremely difficult to obtain? Do you know how he escaped?”
An extremely difficult to obtain Divine Ability Relic?
Wang Fei Xuan frowned and shook her head. “I didn’t hear him mention it.”
“It seems like he didn’t tell you about it… If that’s the case, we can only wait for him to tell us about it tomorrow,” Qian Ping Sheng said with a nod.
Half a day later, another person was sent out. This person was Gao Peng, a Heaven Palace’s disciple. He was also the strongest person after Duan Ling Tian, Wang Fei Xuan, and Zhao Ji. Gao Peng was also an Intermediate Refined Saint Stage Martial Cultivator.
However, he did not have a pleased expression on his face when he came out. How could he? He was so close to passing the trials of a medium-grade Divine Ability Relic. At the crucial moment, he was killed during one of the trials due to a small mistake he made. Due to one small mistake, he had failed to obtain a medium-grade Divine Ability. He only managed to obtain a few low-grade Divine Abilities.
After Gao Peng, no one else was disqualified until the next day when the time was up. Three people were sent out from the Saint Martial Secret Zone.
“They’re out.” One of the three figures was Duan Ling Tian. He let out a breath when he came out and stretched as though no one was there. At the same time, he noticed the two people next to him. These two disciples were not from the Heaven Palace, and their cultivation base was exposed to his Divine Eyes. They were both powerhouses at the Intermediate Refined Saint Stage.
‘It seems they’re the other two Intermediate Refined Saint Stage disciples of Mystical Sky Mansion!’ Duan Ling Tian had long heard there were two other powerful Intermediate Refined Saint Stage disciples in the Mystical Sky Mansion, apart from the Heaven Palace’s Zhao Ji and Gao Peng. They were from the Earth Palace and Mystical Palace respectively.
As for the younger generation from the Yellow Palace, none of them was at the Intermediate Refined Saint Stage or above.
“Hm?” Once Duan Ling Tian regained his senses after he had exited the Saint Martial Secret Zone, he realized everyone’s attention was on him.
Duan Ling Tian looked at Wang Fei Xuan who stood behind the Palace Master of Heaven Palace and asked through Voice Transmission, “What’s wrong?”
“All of them wanted to know how you escaped from the location of the number one Divine Ability Relic in the Saint Martial Secret Zone,” Wang Fei Xuan replied through Voice Transmission, “I didn’t hear you mention anything about the number Divine Ability Relic.”
“The number one Divine Ability Relic?” Duan Ling Tian had a baffled expression on his face.
What was that?
“I heard it was a Divine Ability Relic that had extremely difficult to pass trials. In the history of Mystical Sky Mansion, no one has ever made it through the first trial of that Divine Ability Relic.” Wang Fei Xuan said.
In the history of Mystical Sky Mansion, no one had ever passed the first trial of that Divine Ability Relic?
After listening to Wang Fei Xuan, Duan Ling Tian immediately thought about the Abyssal Swamp.
The first trial of the Abyssal Swamp was definitely the most insane one among all the first trials he had to pass to obtain Divine Ability Relics.
Unless it was a young powerhouse whose strength was comparable to those at the Eminent Saint Stage, most people would not be able to make it through that trial.
That wild beast clan was extremely terrifying!
Duan Ling Tian exchanged a few more words with Wang Fei Xuan before confirming the number one Divine Ability Relic in the Mystical Sky Mansion’s Saint Martial Secret Zone referred to the Divine Ability Relic located in the Abyssal Swamp.
‘They don’t even know what Divine Ability is contained in the Divine Ability Relic in the Abyssal Swamp, but they had already acknowledged it as the number one Divine Ability in the Mystical Sky Mansion’s Saint Martial Secret Zone?’
Duan Ling Tian did not expect the Divine Ability he had obtained had such a title.
‘However… All of them wanted to know how I escaped from the first trial at the Abyssal Swamp? Does this mean no one thinks I would pass the trials and obtain the Divine Ability?’ Duan Ling Tian thought to himself, ‘If I told them I managed to obtain that Divine Ability, the Elementary Devouring Tactic, in the Abyssal Swamp, the Mystical Sky Mansion won’t keep me here and forbid me from leaving, right?’ Duan Ling Tian did not consider this before he came out.
However, after he came out and discovered the significance of the Elementary Devouring Tactic to the Mystical Sky Mansion, this thought appeared in his mind.
Although he was grateful to the Mystical Sky Mansion since he had obtained the Elementary Devouring Tactic, he did not plan to stay in the Mystical Sky Mansion forever. He planned to wait until he had broken through to the Eminent Saint Stage at most before he would leave the Mystical Sky Mansion for the Upper Province of the Dao Martial Saint Land.
At this moment, Duan Ling Tian made up his mind and decided not to mention he had obtained the Elementary Devouring Tactic Divine Ability.
Faced with the question from the Palace Master of Yellow Palace, Qian Ping Sheng, his expression turned slightly serious as he said, “When the surrounding swamp began to bubble and boil, I instinctively felt something was wrong and immediately escaped… Come to think of it, if I wait until the wild beast clan appeared, I’m afraid I wouldn’t have survived.” Duan Ling Tian sighed in relief when he finished speaking as though fear still lingered in his heart.
“I see… You’re quite lucky.” Qian Ping Sheng did not doubt Duan Ling Tian’s words.
Other people shared the same sentiment as well. All of them did not think Duan Ling Tian would be able to pass the first trial of the number one Divine Ability Relic.
At this time, an antagonistic voice said, “Tsk! Coward… Choosing to escape before the wild beast clan even appeared.” The owner of the voice was none other than Zhao Ji.
Faced with Zhao Ji’s rude remark, Duan Ling Tian said with a faint smile on his face, “No matter how cowardly it is, it’s still better than those who are eliminated and kicked out after three days!”
Once Duan Ling Tian finished his sentence, the corners of many people’s mouths began to twitch.
Ling Tian really really knew how to rub salt into one’s wound.
However, they did not think Ling Tian was in the wrong since Zhao Ji had begun insulting him first. Otherwise, Ling Tian would not have mentioned this and humiliated him.
After hearing Duan Ling Tian’s words, Zhao Ji’s expression changed dramatically. He opened his mouth, intending to say something, but a Voice Transmission from his father, Zhao Deng, rang in his ears and made him stop talking. He then sent a Voice Transmission to Duan Ling Tian. “Ling Tian, you and I can’t live under the same sky! I won’t be here if you’re in the Mystical Sky Mansion, and if I’m here, you won’t be here!”
“Then, you’ll have to go, I guess,” Duan Ling Tian responded calmly through Voice Transmission as though he was not afraid.
“Humph! We’ll see!” Zhao Ji snorted coldly through Voice Transmission but did not say anything else. However, when he looked at Duan Ling Tian, his eyes seemed to be spitting fire.
Although Zhao Deng who was standing next to Zhao Ji did not say anything, hints of coldness and malice could be seen in the depths of his eyes.
If looks could kill, Duan Ling Tian would have died a million times!
Naturally, Duan Ling Tian noticed the malicious gazes from the pair of father and son, but he was not bothered. Previously, at the summit of Heaven Palace, he was already prepared to oppose the Zhao Clan the moment he slapped Zhao Ji twice. That was why when he encountered Zhao Ji in the Saint Martial Secret Zone, he had instantly killed Zhao Ji’s clone and eliminated him. Since he had already offended them, it would not make a difference if he offended them further.
“Hm? Who’s that?” Suddenly, Duan Ling Tian discovered there was a stranger looking at him. He saw a skinny old man standing and staring at him quietly.
It was his first time seeing this old man. He was not one of the Mystical Sky Mansion’s high-ranking officials.
“Elder Ku, now that you’ve seen the person… Based on your words, isn’t it time for you to leave?” Zhu Lu Qi, the Palace Master of Heaven Palace, said calmly as he looked at Ku Mi.
“Elder Ku?” Duan Ling Tian looked surprised. It seemed like the old man was not from the Mystical Sky Mansion. Otherwise, Zhu Lu Qi, the Palace Master of Heaven Palace, would not have spoken to him in that manner.
At that same time, Duan Ling Tian also discovered that the skinny old man had a disappointed expression when he looked at him.
‘Why is he disappointed?’ Duan Ling Tian was puzzled by this. He was certain this was his first time seeing the old man, so why did the old man look so disappointed?
Duan Ling Tian was, naturally, unaware that the old man standing before him was none other than Ku Mi, the right-hand man of his cheapskate father, Duan Ru Feng.
Ku Mi looked so disappointed because he discovered Ling Tian was not wearing a disguise. ‘He’s not the Young Mansion Master!’
Ku Mi had seen Duan Ling Tian’s portrait. The current Duan Ling Tian looked nothing like the Young Mansion Master he was looking for.
Ku Mi did not expect, even in his wildest dreams, that the young man standing in front of him was actually the Young Mansion Master he was searching for.
He was unaware his Young Mansion Master’s Disguising Secret Tactic would not leave a trace at all. It was undetectable.
“Mansion Master Meng, farewell!” Faced with Zhu Lu Qi’s aggressive question, Ku Mi did not bother with him. Instead, he looked at the Mansion Master of Mystical Sky Mansion, Meng Qing, who was standing nearby and bade him farewell.
Ku Mi’s departure seemed as though he had vanished into thin air to most people who were present.
Among those who were present, Meng Qing was the only one who could clearly see Ku Mi’s departure.
“He’s so fast!” All the Mystical Sky Mansion’s high-ranking officials who were present looked surprised by the strength of the powerhouse from the Azure Cloud Mansion, Ku Mi. Their strength was not in Ku Mi’s league at all!
Subsequently, it was time to report what they had gained.
Apart from Duan Ling Tian who planned to hold back, the others dutifully reported what they had gained.
The number of Divine Abilities they obtained and the grade of Divine Abilities they obtained would affect their future standing in the Mystical Sky Mansion.
Those who obtained higher grade Divine Abilities would naturally receive more attention and guidance from the Mystical Sky Mansion.
“High-grade Divine Ability?!” When it was Wang Fei Xuan’s turn to report what she gained, and she said that she had obtained a high-grade movement Divine Ability, the Thousand Illusory Shadows, it shocked everyone present on the scene.
Everyone’s eyes immediately shifted to Wang Fei Xuan, and she became the center of attention.
