Translator: EndlessFantasy Translation Editor: EndlessFantasy Translation
“Junior Brother Ling Tian, since you’re the Young Mansion Master of Azure Cloud Mansion, why did you disguise yourself as Li Feng to join the Rising Sky Ranking Battle to save Sister Xue Nai from that situation? With your status, as long as you say the word, the Rising Sky Mansion wouldn’t dare to go against you.”
After learning that Duan Ling Tian was the Young Mansion Master of Azure Cloud Mansion, Gu Li was baffled by a lot of things. Duan Ling Tian had told him a lot of things previously.
In his opinion, with Duan Ling Tian’s status, he merely needed to say the word, and the Rising Sky Mansion would not dare to go against it at all!
The Rising Sky Mansion did not even dare to offend the Young Mansion Masters from general quasi third-rate forces, let alone a top quasi third-rate force like the Azure Cloud Mansion!
“Moreover, since you’re the Young Mansion Master of Azure Cloud Mansion, why would you join the Mystical Sky Mansion? You have better cultivation resources back at the Azure Cloud Mansion!” Gu Li felt puzzled.
“Senior Brother Gu Li, it’s normal for you to have all these questions. I have to tell you that I didn’t know the Mansion Master of Azure Cloud Mansion is my father before today. It’s only natural for me not to know that I’m the Young Mansion Master of Azure Cloud Mansion. Due to these circumstances, I, naturally, had to do everything on my own.” Duan Ling Tian sighed.
“How’s that possible?!” Gu Li was shocked when he heard Duan Ling Tian’s words. When he recalled Duan Ling Tian’s reaction to the name of the Mansion Master of Azure Cloud Mansion, he did not think Duan Ling Tian was lying.
“Junior Brother Ling Tian, your father has never mentioned that he’s the Mansion Master of Azure Cloud Mansion? A few years ago, he went to the Mortal Continent and brought quite many family members back to the Azure Cloud Mansion, why didn’t he bring you along?” Gu Li was puzzled.
“My father’s intention of leaving me on the Mortal Continent was to train me… Nonetheless, he did leave clues behind that would lead me to the Dao Martial Saint Land and the Azure Cloud Mansion once I’m strong enough to stand at the peak of the Mortal Continent. Unfortunately, due to my own fault, I damaged the clues he left me.” Duan Ling Tian could not help but sigh when he thought about the damaged voice transmission jade slips inside the Exquisite Jade Box.
What a twist of fate!
Gu Li finally understood everything after listening to Duan Ling Tian’s explanation. “I see… Nevertheless, it’s a fortunate twist of events. If Junior Brother Ling Tian had gone to the Azure Cloud Mansion as soon as you arrived at the Dao Martial Saint Land, we might not have the chance to meet.”
“Yes.” Duan Ling Tian nodded, feeling pensive.
“Junior Brother Ling Tian, since you know for certain Duan Ru Feng, the Mansion Master of Azure Cloud Mansion, is your father, are you planning to find him? ” Gu Li asked.
“Of course!” Duan Ling Tian nodded decisively. “My biggest wish is to reunite with my family before I leave for the Upper Province of the Dao Martial Saint Land. Now that I have information about them, I’ll naturally look for them!”
After finding out that his father was the Mansion Master of Azure Cloud Mansion, Duan Ling Tian wished more than anything that he could grow a pair of wings so he could fly to the Azure Cloud Mansion as fast as he could. Not only were his parents there, but his fiancée and child were also there!
“Counting the days… My child with Little Fei’er should be a few years old now?” Duan Ling Tian’s eyes inadvertently turned gentle when he thought about Li Fei and their child.
When Gu Li saw Duan Ling Tian standing still with a smile on his face, he knew Duan Ling Tian was thinking about the home that he had been away from for a long time. Gu Li did not bother him since he felt it would be a crime to do so.
Just as Duan Ling Tian had predicted, not long after the few Mystical Sky Mansion’s disciples from the Zhao Clan left, news regarding Gu Li’s breakthrough to the Divine Saint Stage spread in the Mystical Sky Mansion and caused an uproar.
The gloomy atmosphere due to the appearance of the Devouring Dark Devil Technique had also disappeared.
“Senior Brother Gu Li has broken through to the Divine Saint Stage?”
“He’s worthy of being the son of Lord Guardian. Like father, like son!”
“I’m afraid even the Lord Mansion Master wasn’t as young as Senior Brother Gu Li when he broke through to the Divine Saint Stage.”
“If Senior Brother Gu Li becomes the next Mansion Master of our Mystical Sky Mansion, our Mystical Sky Mansion will definitely have a chance in becoming as powerful as forces like the Azure Cloud Mansion and the Mountainshade Black Market! It’s a pity he had previously said he would be leaving to the Upper Province of the Dao Martial Saint Land once he has broken through to the Divine Saint Stage.”
“First, it was Ling Tian. Now it’s Gu Li. Both of them are powerhouses capable of leading the Mystical Sky Mansion to greater heights… Unfortunately, both of them are interested in going to the Upper Province of the Dao Martial Saint Land!”
As news of Gu Li’s breakthrough to the Divine Saint Stage spread further, all the Mystical Sky Mansion’s elders and disciples were both amazed and disheartened at the same time because they knew once Gu Li had broken through to the Divine Saint Stage, he would not stay for long in the Mystical Sky Mansion.
“Gu Li has broken through again?” In the Mystical Sky Mansion’s Main Mansion, Vice Mansion Master Zhao Deng had also heard the news.
At the same time, some of the comments saying that he was not as talented as Gu Li had also begun to circulate in the Mystical Sky Mansion.
Both he and Gu Li were the respective sons of the two Guardians of Mystical Sky Mansion. However, when he was at Gu Li’s age, he was merely a Mastery Eminent Saint Stage Martial Cultivator.
The worst thing one could do was to make a comparison. His innate talent was not too bad. However, compared to Gu Li, suddenly it seemed useless.
The most important thing was both their fathers were Guardians. He had truly embarrassed his father this time.
“Father!” Zhao Deng was feeling frustrated by the comments circulating in the Mystical Sky Mansion when a familiar voice sounded. His expression changed immediately when he heard this voice. His previously gloomy expression brightened like the sun.
This was all because he recognized the owner of the voice. It was his son, Zhao Ji, who had gone missing for almost two years! He did not see his son at all since the Death Duel between Duan Ling Tian and Zhao Kun in the Heaven Palace’s Hall of Death. However, he was not worried since his son’s Soul Pearl was intact.
When Zhao Ji entered, Zhao Deng intentionally put on an angry expression and rebuked him, “Humph! Where did you go for almost two years? I thought you’ve forgotten that you have a father.”
He seemed strict, but upon closer inspection, one could see the surprise in the depth of his eyes at his son’s return.
“Father, I felt upset when I saw how strong Duan Ling Tian was. Therefore I left the Mystical Sky Mansion for a change of scenery… However, I did reap some benefits while I was out there,” Zhao Ji said with a smile.
“Reap some benefits? Humph! Did you mix with the wrong crowd again?” Zhao Deng sneered as he maintained his angry expression.
“Father, I didn’t meet anyone during this trip… However, I discovered a place in the eastern side of the Lower Province that seems to be a place left behind by a powerhouse who seemed to have surpassed the Quintessential Saint Stage!” Zhao Ji seemed excited when he spoke.
A place left behind by a powerhouse who seemed to have surpassed the Quintessential Saint Stage?
After hearing Zhao Ji’s words, Zhao Deng could not maintain his angry expression any longer. He asked in surprise, “Are you sure it’s a place left behind by a powerhouse who seemed to have surpassed the Quintessential Saint Stage?”
“Yes.” Zhao Ji nodded and recited the script he had prepared in his mind, “According to the message left behind by the powerhouse, he was someone who had transcended the Quintessential Saint Stage. Moreover, the Dao Martial Saint Land had not even been divided into two when he was alive.”
Zhao Deng’s breath quickened when he heard Zhao Ji’s words.
The era before the Dao Martial Saint Land was divided into the Upper and Lower Province was the Prehistoric Era!
Relics left behind by powerhouses from that era were known as Prehistoric Relics.
In the history of the Lower Province of the Dao Martial Saint Land, there were a lot of legends about Prehistoric Relics.
All those who had obtained Prehistoric Relics had eventually become top-rated powerhouses in the Lower Province of the Dao Martial Saint Land. Even after they had gone to the Upper Province, they still managed to thrive!
At this moment, he learned his son had encountered a Prehistoric Relic!
“Usually, there will be an Inheritance from a powerhouse in the Prehistoric Relic he or she left behind… Is there any Inheritance in the Prehistoric Relic you found?” Zhao Deng asked as his breath quickened.
“Yes!” Zhao Ji nodded as soon as Zhao Deng finished speaking. “The Inheritance inside the Prehistoric Relic belongs to me now.”
Zhao Deng’s eyes lit up. His son had obtained an Inheritance in a Prehistoric Relic?
At the same time, Zhao Ji sighed and continued saying, “Unfortunately, the Prehistoric Relic shattered after I obtained the Inheritance. Originally, I wanted to bring it back for you and grandfather to see if both of you can obtain the Inheritance as well. However, it’s impossible now.”
“Silly boy!” Zhao Deng was, naturally, happy when he heard Zhao Ji’s filial words. “An Inheritance in a Prehistoric Relic usually can only be passed down to one person. This is extremely precious! Grandfather and I will only be happy for you knowing that you’ve obtained an Inheritance.”
“What kind of Inheritance did you obtain?” Zhao Deng asked again.
“It’s a Devil Cultivator’s Inheritance… More accurately, a Devil Beast’s inheritance,” Zhao Ji replied.
In the Dao Martial Saint Land, apart from humans, Saint Beast could also cultivate the Devil Dao. Humans who cultivated the Devil Dao were known as Devil Cultivators while Saint Beasts that cultivated the Devil Dao were known as Devil Beasts.
“A Devil Beast’s Inheritance?”
Zhao Deng’s eyes lit up yet again. “Devil Cultivators’ Inheritances are usually superior compared to all Inheritances in Prehistoric Relics… What changes did you undergo since then?”
Just as Zhao Deng finished his sentence, a vast and chilly aura surged out of Zhao Ji’s body. The room’s temperature seemed to have dropped significantly as well.
“D-divine Saint Stage?!” Zhao Deng who had sensed the aura was shocked. His expression was one of shock and amazement.
Although he knew an Inheritance from a Prehistoric Devil Beast was not simple, he did not think it would be so miraculous! It made an Intermediate Refined Saint Stage Martial Cultivator skipped the Eminent Saint Stage and break through to the Divine Saint Stage in one go in just less than two years.
Even in Zhao Deng’s wildest dreams, he would never be able to imagine that his son was lying to him!
What Inheritance from a Prehistoric Devil Beast? It was all fake! The truth was he had cultivated the Devouring Dark Devil Technique!
