Translator: EndlessFantasy Translation Editor: EndlessFantasy Translation
“I’m afraid… I might not want to leave if I meet him,” sighed the lady in red softly, her eyes as gentle as flowing water. She had her eyes on Duan Ling Tian who was beneath the clouds. “He might not want me to leave.”
“Hmph! That brat has ladies on both of his sides now. I’m afraid he’s forgotten all about you,” scoffed the old man.
The lady smiled faintly. “I’ve finally seen his two fiancees… They’re as outstanding as he said. No, they’re more outstanding than what he told me.”
The old man suddenly said, “You can stay if you regret your decision. I’ll inform them for you.”
“If I regret my decision, they might think you’re fooling them and even kill you. If you’re dead, they’ll take me away eventually. By then, I might drag him into this.” The lady shook her head. “If the ending’s the same, I don’t see the point of creating unnecessary drama.”
She was eager to see Duan Ling Tian. However, she knew that now was not the best time.
“Big Brother Duan, do you know… I, Tian Wu, have restored my memory?” The lady thought to herself.
She was Feng Tian Wu who had been taken away back at the Lost Stone Forest of the Cloud Continent.
The person who had taken her away was the old man in the red robes next to her, Chi Huo!
“Lady, the difference between the Saint Land and here, or even the Cloud Continent, is like heaven and earth. If you leave now, who knows when you’ll see him again?” Chi Huo sighed.
“We’ll meet one day,” Feng Tian Wu said, feeling a strong affirmative instinct.
Even if she left this time, she knew she would meet this man of her dreams again.
“Let’s go,” Feng Tian Wu said and subsequently, she seemed to have transformed herself into a ball of flames. She flew away and vanished in the sky.
Then, Chi Huo followed her closely.
Before Feng Tian Wu left, a tablet fell from where she had been earlier. She had intentionally left it behind.
Ancient words that were difficult to decipher filled the tablet. Most importantly, the edge of the tablet was chipped.
The tablet fell at an accelerating speed which alerted Duan Ling Tian and the rest.
Everyone looked at the sky one after another. A glance was enough for them to notice the falling tablet and their jaws dropped. “What… What’s happening?”
“I’ve seen rain, snow, and even hail, but it’s a tablet this time!” A Ling Xuan Peak disciple gulped hard with disbelief in his eyes.
It was the first time in his life witnessing a tablet falling from the sky.
“A Devilseal Tablet!” As everyone was stunned by what was happening including Martial Emperor Ling Xuan Yang Hui. Recognizing the tablet, Duan Ling Tian’s eyes lit up.
It was the Devilseal Tablet!
“Hmph! Kid, the Devilseal Tablet’s fake.” In his excited stupor, before Duan Ling Tian could figure the reason the Devilseal Tablet was falling from the sky, Wang Ba’s voice was heard. It was like a cold, wet blanket being thrown at him and jolting him.
“It’s fake?” Filled with suspicion, he leaped into the sky and caught the Devilseal Tablet.
“It really is fake!” He recognized that the Devilseal Tablet was fake the second he caught it. After all, the Devilseal Tablet was no foreign item to him.
He even remembered the Devilseal Tablet’s components clearly. This fake Devilseal Tablet had a significant difference from the real Devilseal Tablet’s component.
However, he had no idea that the fake Devilseal Tablet that he was holding in his hands had been forged by Lost Stone Forest Martial Emperor’s direct disciple, Zhou Yi. Zhou Yi had forged the fake tablet before getting his hands on the real item.
It was only natural that the component bore a major difference compared to the real one.
However, the fake Devilseal Tablet that Zhou Yi had forged by copying the real one, which was the one that Martial Emperor Shi Qi had taken away shared a similar component with the real tablet.
Feng Tian Wu had come in contact with the Devilseal Tablet a long time ago, so she did not realize that it was forged when Martial Emperor Shi Qi gave her the fake Devilseal Tablet that Zhou Yi had copied earlier.
The fake Devilseal Tablet broke into pieces when Duan Ling Tian inserted his energy into it. It turned into countless bits of gravel and fell onto the ground.
Almost as soon as the fake Devilseal Tablet was crushed, Duan Ling Tian leaped into the sky and passed through the clouds, appearing above them.
He had many unanswered questions.
Although the Devilseal Tablet was fake, where did it come from?
He did not believe that it had just fallen from the sky.
“There must’ve been someone here just now… He left the fake Devilseal Tablet behind and left. What’s his intention?” He simply could not figure what had happened despite cracking his head.
“Brother Ling Tian, what happened just now?” At that second, Yang Hui who leaped into the air after him arrived next to him and asked with doubt written all over his face.
Li Fei and Ke’er followed and looked at Duan Ling Tian with misgivings too.
“I initially had the exact tablet. The boost it provides is comparable with a Quasi Royal Grade spirit weapon! But I lost this tablet a year ago before I suffered my memory loss,” Duan Ling Tian said, “The tablet just now was fake. It isn’t the tablet I had.”
“Is that so?” Yang Hui was stunned and became a little speechless, unable to figure how that had happened.
Soon, he seemed to recall something which caused him to turn solemn.
“That crazy Martial Emperor You Han! How dare she attack you just because you spent a little more time with her disciples? She even tried to kill me! She’s a lunatic!” Yang Hui exclaimed, recalling what had happened earlier.
He recalled the scene when Martial Emperor You Han had appeared and attacked Duan Ling Tian, then attempted to kill him after “injuring” Duan Ling Tian.
Duan Ling Tian’s expression became a little unnatural after hearing Yang Hui.
He was the only one who knew the reason why Martial Emperor You Han had behaved like that. As opposed to what she said, she had not come for her two direct disciples that Duan Ling Tian had taken away from her.
Martial Emperor You Han’s ultimate goal was Duan Ling Tian.
To Martial Emperor You Han, he was the Rebirth Martial Emperor’s third reincarnation and a priceless treasure.
“Fortunately, the senior lent a helping hand. Otherwise, I, Yang Hui would’ve been dead,” Yang Hui sighed.
Yang Hui’s words made Li Fei and Ke’er gaze into each other’s eyes. They saw their own surprise reflected as they were clear about what had happened earlier.
It was their man Duan Ling Tian who had saved Yang Hui from Martial Emperor You Han’s hand with his bow and arrow. He was the one who had pulled Yang Hui out of the gates of hell.
However, they did not take the initiative to tell Yang Hui about it. The knew that their man would tell Yang Hui himself if he wanted him to know.
“I wonder who that senior was… Could he be one of the three Hidden Fog Island Masters?” Duan Ling Tian speculated.
“No.” Yang Hui shook his head. “I’ve seen the three Hidden Fog Island Masters once in the past. Although the senior had a powerful ability, I don’t think he’s on the same level as the three Island Masters.
“Moreover, if I’m not mistaken, the technique that he performed to attack Martial Emperor You Han is a martial skill that’s higher than Heaven Rank Advanced level.” Yang Hui became serious as he spoke.
“A martial skill that’s higher than Heaven Rank Advanced level?” Li Fei and Ke’er were shocked. They looked lost as it was their first time hearing such a martial skill.
“That’s right,” Yang Hui nodded with desire burning in his eyes. “Martial skills that are higher than Heaven Rank Advanced level are called the Saint Grade Martial Tactic! No matter the Overseas Saint Islands or the Cloud Continent, there’re only two Ancient Clans that mastered the Saint Grade Martial Tactic.”
Saint Grade Martial Tactic!
Li Fei and Ke’er had learned about how terrifying the Saint Grade Martial Tactic from Yang Hui’s explanation and were shocked.
Soon, they looked into each other’s eyes and recalled something. They then looked at Duan Ling Tian at the same time.
They had witnessed Duan Ling Tian saving Yang Hui earlier.
“Rascal, did you perform the Saint Grade Martial Tactic just now?” Li Fei asked through Voice Transmission.
Ke’er’s voice came through Voice Transmission after Li Fei to ask the same question.
‘That’s right,” Duan Ling Tian answered honestly, not hiding from the two ladies.
“Rascal, can… Can I learn that?” Li Fei spoke again through Voice Transmission, appearing a little excited.
Although Ke’er did not say anything, one could tell from her hopeful eyes that she was very interested in learning the Saint Grade Martial Tactic too.
“Of course, you can,” Duan Ling Tian looked at Ke’er at the same time as he responded to Li Fei. He said through Voice Transmission, “Ke’er, I’ll hand you the Saint Grade Martial Tactic to you when we return.”
“Thank you, Young Master.” Ke’er’s cheeks were flushing slightly when she heard that.
“Silly girl, you don’t have to thank me.” Duan Ling Tian smiled while shaking his head.
Seeing the three of them flirting with their eyes, Yang Hui felt a little awkward and left knowing that it was only appropriate for him to do so. He left to comfort the Ling Xuan Peak disciples.
Whatever that had happened earlier had left a haunting scar on the Ling Xuan Peak disciples’ hearts.
However, the incident the Ling Xuan Peak people experienced did not alert the people on the southern island, including the Martial Emperors and Demon Emperor powerhouses from the Cloud Continent as well as their people.
The reason why they were not alerted was the soundproofing Inscription Formations set up around their accommodation on the Hidden Fog Island.
“The Hidden Fog Martial Competition’s happening tomorrow.” Duan Ling Tian brought the two ladies back and his eyes gleamed in excitement.
After handing the saint token with the Saint Grade Martial Tactic Colossal Aerolite Arrow to the two ladies, Duan Ling Tian sat with his legs crossed in the compound while visualizing the Colossal Aerolite Arrow in his head.
“From what Wang Ba said, my Colossal Aerolite Arrow’s only considered to be on the preliminary stage! But the preliminary Colossal Aerolite Arrow managed to break Martial Emperor You Han’s Heaven and Earth Wipeout!” At the same time, Duan Ling Tian recalled what had happened earlier.
“Although Martial Emperor You Han cultivated Han Bing’s Divine Sword Technique to its peak and managed to perform the Heaven and Earth Wipeout, she doesn’t seem to be familiar with the latter, so she’s mostly just at the Initial Stage,” Duan Ling Tian thought to himself.
