High-grade Divine Ability!
Up until this moment, Wang Fei Xuan was the first person to say she had obtained a high-grade Divine Ability.
At this moment, the Palace Master of Yellow Palace, Qian Ping Sheng, said, “The Thousand Illusory Shadows… In the history of Mystical Sky Mansion, there was one senior who obtained it. However, he was a male, and therefore, he did not manage to master this Divine Ability. Nevertheless, according to the notes he left behind, if a female disciple obtained this Divine Ability, they’ll have a high chance of mastering it.”
All the Mystical Sky Mansion’s high-ranking official instantly stared at Wang Fei Xuan with a burning gaze.
Wang Fei Xuan was a female Martial Cultivator. Did it mean she would be able to master that high-grade Divine Ability?
“Senior Brother Zhu, let Miss Wang join our Yellow Palace?” Soon after, Qian Ping Sheng looked at Zhu Lu Qi and began his campaign to snatch her to his palace.”I intend to make her my direct disciple.”
“Junior Brother Qian, it’s too late because I also plan to make her my direct disciple.”
After learning Wang Fei Xuan had obtained the high-grade movement Divine Ability, the Thousand Illusory Shadows, Zhu Lu Qi, naturally, would not allow her to join the Yellow Palace. Hence, when he heard Qian Ping Sheng’s words, he immediately stated his intention of making Wang Fei Xuan his direct disciple.
After hearing Zhu Lu Qi’s words, Wang Fei Xuan’s eyes brightened.
She had told them about the high-grade Divine Ability she had obtained so she could have better treatment from the Mystical Sky Mansion. Now that the Palace Master of Heaven Palace wanted to take her in as his direct disciple, did this not mean that she had achieved her goal?
The Palace Master of Heaven Palace was the leader of all the Vice Mansion Masters in the Mystical Sky Mansion. His strength and status were only second to the Mansion Master of Mystical Sky Mansion and the two Guardians.
It was only natural for Wang Fei Xuan to feel delighted being taken in as his direct disciple.
Zhu Lu Qi ignored Qian Ping Sheng who had a glum expression and looked at Wang Fei Xuan. He asked with a smile, “What about it? Girl, are you willing to acknowledge me as your master?”
“Greetings to Master!” Under everyone’s watchful eyes, Wang Fei Xuan kneeled down in the air and kowtowed at Zhu Lu Qi three times as a formal acknowledgment of her master.
Zhu Lu Qi laughed heartily when he saw this. He was extremely pleased.
“Congratulations Senior Brother Zhu!”
“Congratulations Lord Palace Master!”
At the same time, everyone who was present congratulated Zhu Lu Qi, including Qian Ping Sheng, the Palace Master of Yellow Palace. Although it felt as though his heart was bleeding, he could only accept this.
In fact, it was not only Qian Ping Sheng, the Palace Master of Yellow Palace, who felt like his heart was bleeding, but the other Vice Mansion Masters of Mystical Sky Mansion, apart from Zhao Deng, also felt as though their hearts were bleeding.
Was there anyone who did not want an outstanding disciple who possessed a high-grade Divine Ability?
Among all the Mystical Sky Mansion’s high-ranking officials who were present, there was only the Mansion Master, Meng Qing, who could contest the words of Zhu Lu Qi, the Palace Master of Heaven Palace.
Hence, when Zhu Lu Qi said he intended to accept Wang Fei Xuan as his direct disciple, no one else said a thing because they knew it was futile.
“Congratulations.” Duan Ling Tian looked at Wang Fei Xuan and congratulated her through Voice Transmission.
“That day after I was disqualified… Did you defeat the white-clad Sword Cultivator?” Wang Fei Xuan asked through Voice Transmission.
That day, she was killed during the final trial by the Sword Cultivator guarding the high-grade Divine Ability Relic. The Sword Cultivator’s strength was out of her league. Even she could not confirm if Duan Ling Tian passed the final trial or not.
“Yes.” Duan Ling Tian nodded. “Defeated him by luck.”
“If that’s the case, you’ve also obtained a high-grade Divine Ability?” Wang Fei Xuan asked.
“Yes.” Duan Ling Tian nodded and then said, “However, I hope you…”
“You hope that I’ll keep it a secret, right? Don’t worry, I won’t tell anyone.” Before Duan Ling Tian finished his sentence, Wang Fei Xuan interrupted Duan Ling Tian enthusiastically and promised him. “You’ll leave the Mystical Sky Mansion in the future and look for your master in the Upper Province… If they know you’ve obtained a high-grade Divine Ability, they might not let you go.”
“Thanks.” Duan Ling Tian’s heart warmed when he heard Wang Fei Xuan’s Voice Transmission that was filled with understanding.
“Don’t thank me. If it wasn’t for you, I wouldn’t have obtained the Thousand Illusory Shadows,” Wang Fei Xuan retorted before she continued to say, “That’s why we’re even… However, I helped you to return the favor to Liu Jian’s senior. So you still owe me for that.”
Duan Ling Tian was rendered speechless when he heard her words. Did she not consider that favor returned?
In that instant, Duan Ling Tian felt like telling her he had obtained another high-grade Divine Ability so he did not owe her anything. However, he did not say it eventually.
Duan Ling Tian’s strength was undoubtedly the strongest among those who entered the Saint Martial Secret Zone. Therefore, everyone had high expectations of the Divine Abilities that he had obtained.
However, the greater the expectation, the greater the disappointment.
“One medium-grade Divine Ability?” Most of the Mystical Sky Mansion’s high-ranking officials, including Mansion Master Meng Qing, were somewhat disappointed when they learned that Duan Ling Tian merely obtained a medium-grade Divine Ability and several low-grade Divine Abilities. Only people from the Zhao Clan were gloating.
“You… How could you not obtain any high-grade Divine Abilities? With your strength, ordinary high-grade Divine Ability Relic trials shouldn’t be difficult at all.” The Palace Master of Yellow Palace, Qian Ping Sheng, looked at Duan Ling Tian in disbelief and surprise.
“I only encountered two high-grade Divine Ability Relics,” Duan Ling Tian shook his head and said, “The first was the number one Divine Ability Relic. The second one was the Divine Ability Relic, the Thousand Illusory Shadows.”
“That means you offered the Thousand Illusory Shadows to Fei Xuan?” The Palace Master of Heaven Palace, Zhu Lu Qi, gave Duan Ling Tian an approving look. He felt Duan Ling Tian was someone who could see the bigger picture.
The Thousand Illusory Shadows Divine Ability was much harder for male Martial Cultivators to master compared to female Martial Cultivators. It was the right choice to give it to a female Martial Cultivator.
“Actually, that’s not…” When Duan Ling Tian was about to say he did not give it up to Wang Fei Xuan, she quickly interrupted him by saying, “Yes, Master. He gave it up for me. If he didn’t help me, I wouldn’t have been able to obtain this Divine Ability.”
Instantly, all of Mystical Sky Mansion’s high-ranking officials, including Mansion Master Meng Qing, looked at Duan Ling Tian approvingly except for Zhao Deng. They all shared Zhu Lu Qi’s sentiment. All of them felt Duan Ling Tian had made the right decision.
“Not everyone would be able to give up a high-grade Divine Ability… Ling Tian, you’re pretty good!” One of the Vice Mansion Masters of Mystical Sky Mansion praised Duan Ling Tian.
Another Vice Mansion Master of Mystical Sky Mansion chimed in, “Yes. In the future, if our Mystical Sky Mansion managed to pass down the high-grade Divine Ability, the Thousand Illusory Shadows, you’ll definitely be credited for it! At that time, your name will inevitably be remembered in the history of Mystical Sky Mansion.”
As one after another Mystical Sky Mansion’s disciples stated their gains, Wang Fei Xuan remained the only one who obtained a high-grade Divine Ability among the thirty people who had entered the Saint Martial Secret zone.
Naturally, this was because Duan Ling Tian had decided to conceal his gains.
Moreover, among the thirty people who entered the Saint Martial Secret Zone, Liu Jian was the only person whose cultivation base was below the Refined Saint Stage but still managed to obtain a medium-grade Divine Ability.
Instantly, all the disciples at the peak of the Pristine Saint Stage who were present looked at Liu Jian in envy and jealousy.
Apart from Zhao Ji who was eliminated by Duan Ling Tian early on, among the Intermediate Refined Saint Stage Martial Cultivators who entered the Saint Martial Secret Zone, there were two other people, apart from Wang Fei Xuan, who also obtained medium-grade Divine Abilities.
Gao Peng was the only one who was in a situation similar to Zhao Ji. Both of them did not manage to obtain a medium-grade Divine Ability. Naturally, he was in a better situation than Zhao Ji since he managed to obtain three low-grade Divine Abilities.
Meanwhile, there were a few Early Refined Saint Stage powerhouses who obtained medium-grade Divine Abilities. This made Gao Peng and Zhao Ji’s expressions turn gloomy.
In the end, there were people who were happy with their trip inside the Saint Martial Secret Zone trip, and there were also people who were upset about it. Naturally, Duan Ling Tian belonged to the group of people who were happy about it.
Even after Meng Qing, the Mansion Master of the Mystical Sky Mansion, gave an order to disperse the crowd, he did not mention accepting Duan Ling Tian as his direct disciple.
Duan Ling Tian heaved a sigh of relief when he saw this.
‘It seems like the news I spread through the mouth of others has dispelled the Mansion Master of Mystical Sky Mansion’s notion of accepting me as his disciple… It’s for the better since I won’t be staying for long in the Mystical Sky Mansion. However, if I can master the Divine Abilities, the Elementary Devouring Tactic and the Otherworldly Celestial, I must pass it down to a suitable Mystical Sky Mansion’s disciple,’ Duan Ling Tian swore to himself inwardly.
“Senior Brother Ling Tian, thank you.” Duan Ling Tian had left along with Gu Li and Wang Fei Xuan. However, before they had gone too far, Liu Jian caught up to them and sincerely thanked Duan Ling Tian.
If it was not for Duan Ling Tian’s sake, Wang Fei Xuan would not have helped him to obtain a medium-grade Divine Ability.
“Don’t thank me. If you need to thank someone, you can thank Elder Liu Hong Guang, the Second Elder of Raging Wave Mansion. Moreover, please help me pass him a message. Tell him that Li Feng did not intend to stand them up, but he had something else to do,” Duan Ling Tian said.
“I’ll pass on this message.” Liu Jian hurriedly nodded before he bade farewell to Duan Ling Tian. He did not want to bother him any longer than necessary.
During their journey back, Gu Li glanced at Duan Ling Tian as he said, “Junior Brother Ling Tian, you really have mediocre luck… Although you encountered two high-grade Divine Ability Relics, one of it is impossible to obtain while the other one isn’t suitable for male Martial Cultivators.”
“If it’s yours, it’s yours. If it’s not meant to be, one shouldn’t force it.” Duan Ling Tian merely smiled faintly when he heard Gu Li’s words.
When Gu Li heard his words, it sounded to him as though Duan Ling Tian had resigned to his fate. Whereas when Wang Fei Xuan heard his words, it held another meaning because she knew Duan Ling Tian had obtained a sword-type high-grade offensive Divine Ability.
Suddenly, the sound of an explosion reverberated from the sky. It shocked all of them so much that they stopped moving.
Following that, a grating voice sounded and spread through the entire Mystical Sky Mansion. “I’m the Deputy Leader of Mountainshade Black Market, Feng Bu Yi! I came to the Mystical Sky Mansion today to see the strongest person among the younger generation, Ling Tian! Little Brother Ling Tian, please come out and meet me!”
The Deputy Leader of Mountainshade Black Market!
Feng Bu Yi!
The entire Mystical Sky Mansion was in an uproar.
When Gu Li and Wang Fei Xuan glanced at him, Duan Ling Tian was momentarily shocked. “Looking for me?”
