Chapter 1808: Duan Ling Tian’s Son
Translator: EndlessFantasy Translation Editor: EndlessFantasy Translation
Black Nether was none other than the Devil Cultivator who tried to possess Duan Ru Feng’s body previously. He was a powerful being from the Upper Province of the Dao Martial Saint Land.
Initially, when Duan Ling Tian obtained the Devilseal Table, a large part of Black Nether’s soul was sealed inside it. He had also tried to possess Duan Ling Tian’s body, but due to Duan Ling Tian’s soul that was special since it did not come from this world, Black Nether’s soul failed to possess his body. Moreover, Black Nether’s soul was obliterated as well.
The moment Black Nether’s main soul was obliterated, the soul remnant trying to take over Duan Ru Feng’s body was obliterated as well. Due to this reason, Duan Ru Feng managed to regain control of his own body.
The powerful ability that Black Nether cultivated while he had control of his body had also been mastered by Duan Ru Feng.
As for the Azure Cloud Mansion, it was a sect that Black Nether had snatched over when he was occupying Duan Ru Feng’s body. Naturally, when Black Nether died, the sect had also fallen into Duan Ru Feng’s hands. Black Nether had done many things, but in the end, it had all ended up in Duan Ru Feng’s possession.
‘Although Black Nether was a Devil Cultivator and was extremely arrogant, he wouldn’t have stooped so low as to resort to these inhumane methods. In his opinion, only lowly and weak Devil Cultivators would do such a thing. It must be Black Nether’s abandoned disciple who had altered the Devouring Dark Devil Technique that Black Nether passed to him into something so abominable such as devouring the vital energies and blood of young women!’ It was not difficult for Duan Ru Feng who had spent some time with Black Nether to figure this out.
Duan Ru Feng narrowed his eyes as he thought about this when a childish and pleasant voice resonated from outside the main hall. It was obvious the voice belonged to a child. “Grandfather… Grandfather…”
Upon hearing the voice, Duan Ru Feng opened his eyes that brightened immediately. A loving smile appeared on his face as well.
A little boy who was about three years old entered the Main Hall by walking in the air. However, as he walked in the air, his body wobbled as though he was going to fall with each step he took. It made the people around him break out in cold sweat on his behalf.
“Nian’er, you can’t disturb your grandfather.” At the same time, a beautiful figure also entered the Main Hall.
It was a woman with peerless beauty. The moment she appeared, the surrounding seemed to dim in her presence. Soft and long hair draped over her shoulder like a waterfall.
If Duan Ling Tian was here, he would be able to identify with just a glance it was his fiancée, Li Fei.
Li Fei’s appearance did not change much from before. She did not look like a woman who had given birth before.
“Nian’er, come to grandfather.” Duan Ru Feng shook his head at Li Fei and opened his arms wide, allowing the little boy to throw himself into his embrace. “Oh? Nian’er, you seem to have gained a little weight again… Good! Good!”
Duan Ru Feng smiled widely. Love filled his eyes.
Previously, when his son was just born, he had already been targeted by Black Nether. Due to both of them fighting for control of his body, it caused him to be unable to return home for 20 years. It was because of this he had missed out on his son’s childhood. He felt extremely regretful over this matter.
It was also because of the guilt he felt toward his son that all the love he could not give to his own son was given to the little boy in his embrace. The little boy was his, Duan Ru Feng, grandson!
“Father.” At the same time, Li Fei had also entered and bowed at Duan Ru Feng respectfully.
Although Duan Ru Feng was her man’s father, she still maintained a respectful manner in front of Duan Ru Feng since he was the Mansion Master of the quasi third-rate force, the Azure Cloud Mansion, in the Lower Province of the Dao Martial Saint Land.
She had been staying in the Azure Cloud Mansion long enough to understand the matter in the Lower Province of the Dao Martial Saint Land.
She knew the Azure Cloud Mansion was one of the two most powerful sects in the Lower Province of the Dao Martial Saint Land. It was a sect that was not inferior to the Mountainshade Black Market.
Her fiance’s father was one of the two strongest people in the Lower Province of the Dao Martial Saint Land.
‘Dugu in the north, and Ru Feng in the south. Both of them dominated the entire Lower Province!’
This was a famous saying in the Lower Province of the Dao Martial Saint Land. Leader Dugu of the Mountainshade Black Market in the north and Mansion Master Duan Ru Feng in the south of the Lower Province of the Dao Martial Saint Land were able to rule the entire Lower Province!
Naturally, this was just a saying. What the saying meant was the Leader of Mountainshade Black Market and the Mansion Master of Azure Cloud Mansion were currently two of the most powerful men in the Lower Province of the Dao Martial Saint Land.
“Fei’er, since we’re a family now, there’s no need for you to be so courteous whenever you see me,” Duan Ru Feng said with a smile. He was quite pleased with his daughter-in-law who was standing before him.
How could he not be pleased?
The grandson in his embrace was given birth by her after all!
“Mother, I want to sleep with Grandfather today,” the little boy said to Li Fei as he puffed his cheeks and bobbed his little head.
“Nian’er, don’t be ridiculous!” Upon hearing the little boy’s words. Li Fei’s expression turned grave immediately. “Your grandfather needs to cultivate so you can’t disturb him!”
When the little boy heard her words, he had an aggrieved expression on his face as he turned to look at Duan Ru Feng with tears in his eyes. “Grandfather, Grandfather… I want to sleep with you tonight! I want to sleep with you tonight! Hurry up and tell Mother…”
“Okay, okay,” Faced with his cute grandson who was in his arms, it was, naturally, impossible for Duan Ru Feng to reject his request. He immediately looked at Li Fei and smiled. “Fei’er, just let Nian’er sleep with me tonight.”
“Alright, Father.” Since Duan Ru Feng had agreed to it, there was nothing for Li Fei to say.
“Father!” As though she was reminded of something, she suddenly asked through Voice Transmission, “Is there any news about him?”
There were only three people present on the scene but Li Fei still used Voice Transmission. It was obvious she did not want the little boy to listen in on their conversation.
“Not yet for the time being,” Duan Ru Feng replied through Voice Transmission. Naturally, he knew Li Fei meant his son, Duan Ling Tian. “Ever since the news about Tian’er possessing the Devilseal Tablet spread out, it seemed as though he had vanished into thin air.”
“He’ll be okay, right?” Li Fei asked, worried.
“Don’t worry. A senior who excels in fortune-telling me has told me that no matter how big a crisis Tian’er faces, he would be able to turn it into a blessing. So far, that senior has never been wrong,” Duan Ru Feng replied.
The senior he mentioned was undoubtedly the Prophet Old Man.
“I hope that’s the case.” Li Fei nodded, but the worries in the depth of her eyes could not be concealed. After all, she had never seen the Prophet Old Man before and had never heard of him as well.
As Li Fei looked at the mischievous little boy in Duan Ru Feng’s embrace, she muttered to herself, “If Younger Sister Ke’er and her son are safe and sound, I’m sure the child is about Nian’er’s age.”
Upon hearing Li Fei’s words, Duan Ru Feng narrowed his eyes as a worried expression appeared on his face.
He was also very worried about his daughter-in-law who was currently in the Fire Worship Sect of the Upper Province of the Dao Martial Saint Land!
Although he was the Mansion Master of the Azure Cloud Mansion, someone who was able to summon storms and waves in the Lower Province of the Dao Martial Saint Land, Duan Ru Feng’s strength was nothing at all in the Upper Province of the Dao Martial Saint Land.
Naturally, he did not remain idle. At the very least, he asked for help from the Watchers in the Lower Province to inquire about the matter.
The Watchers in the Lower Province were his acquaintances. He had to pay a price before the Watchers had agreed to help him.
However, up until now, he had yet to receive news from them. It seemed like the Watchers had not inquired about the matter yet.
The Watchers were disciples from first-rate forces in the Upper Province, and they were all at the Divine Saint Stage. If they wanted to inquire about the Fire Worship Sect, it was only natural for them to be able to obtain news.
The little boy in Duan Ru Feng’s embrace was Duan Ling Tian and Li Fei’s child. Li Fei had named him Duan Nian Tian.
Nian meant longing.
One had to acknowledged that Li Fei and Ke’er were quite in sync with each other. Ke’er named her daughter Duan Si Ling while Li Fei named her son Duan Nian Tian.
Si Ling and Nian Tian.
Unfortunately, Duan Ling Tian still did not know the names of his son and daughter. Moreover, he had not even met his own son and daughter.
The Mountainshade Black Market had also received the news released by the Mystical Sky Mansion.
When Leader Dugu of Mountainshade Black Market heard the news, he asked calmly, “The Devouring Dark Devil Technique has appeared?”
At this moment, the few Mountainshade Black Market’s high-ranking officials standing before him could clearly sense the terrifying aura in their leader’s voice. However, they were not surprised.
At that time when the Devouring Dark Devil Technique appeared, a shockingly powerful Devil Cultivator had appeared as well.
In order to defeat that Devil Cultivator, the quasi third-rate forces at that time had sent out their elite powerhouses. This included the Mountainshade Black Market.
It was during that battle that the ancestor of Leader Dugu was killed.
One could say that the Mountainshade Black Market and the Devouring Dark Devil Technique and its owner were sworn enemies.
“Devouring Dark Devil Technique, Xu Jing, and Zhu Lu Qi… Give out orders to spare no efforts in searching for traces of both of them at every operation point! As soon as they’re found, kill them!” Dugu’s eyes flashed coldly as he gave out his order.
The few people standing below him responded respectfully, “Yes, Lord Leader.”
Dugu looked at one of the people standing below and said, “Feng Bu Yi, follow me to the Mystical Sky Mansion. I must find out the details about this matter!”
Feng Bu Yi was none other than the Deputy Leader of Mountainshade Black Market who went to the Mystical Sky Mansion half a year ago.
Just as Feng Bu Yi was about to leave the Mountainshade Black Market with Dugu to the Mystical Sky Mansion, a spy arrived just in time.
“The reason Zhu Lu Qi, the former Palace Master of Heaven Palace, wants to cultivate the Devouring Dark Devil Technique is to seek revenge from me?” After learning about this news, Feng Bu Yi recalled the Mystical Sky Mansion’s high-ranking official whom he had taught a lesson to half a year ago. He finally pieced the puzzle together. “I remember now! That guy seems to be called Zhu Lu Qi! However, does he really think he’ll be able to seek revenge from me after cultivating that Devouring Dark Devil Technique? He has really overestimated himself!”
Feng Bu Yi had a disdainful expression on his face.
“What’s going on?” When Dugu heard this news, he looked at Feng Bu Yi and asked, “You’ve enmity with that traitor from the Mystical Sky Mansion?”
Faced with his leader’s question, Feng Bu Yi did not dare to dally and immediately recounted what had happened half a year ago.
“He was the Palace Master of Heaven Palace and one of the Vice Mansion Masters of Mystical Sky Mansion. Naturally, being humiliated in such a manner is worse than killing him. No wonder he was so desperate that he resorts to cultivating the Devouring Dark Devil Technique. As it turns out, it’s all because of you.” Dugu stared at Feng Bu Yi intently.
