Translator: EndlessFantasy Translation Editor: EndlessFantasy Translation
Even Tang Zhen, the First Island Master of Hidden Fog Island, had no idea which sect from the Dao Martial Saint Land had taken Feng Tian Wu away.
This made Duan Ling Tian sighed out loud.
‘However, one thing I can be sure of now is that Tian Wu is safe.’ Duan Ling Tian sighed in relief when he thought of this.
Duan Ling Tian proceeded to ask Tang Zhen to help him find the materials that were needed to fix the Seven Treasure Exquisite Pagoda.
Whether it was because he feared Han Xue Nai’s ruthless method or Half Moon Island’s prestige, Tang Zhen did not dare to slack when it came to Duan Ling Tian’s request. He quickly ordered the entire Hidden Fog Island to search and gather the materials.
Tang Zhen was so shocked that he did not regain his senses for a long time when he found out Duan Ling Tian had become the new Island Master of Half Moon Island.
At this time, Duan Ling Tian also found out that the group of Martial Emperors and Demon Emperors from Cloud Continent had already returned to Cloud Continent.
‘Previously, during the trip to Half Moon Island, whether it was the three great Overseas Saint Islands or the three great Mortal Continents, including Cloud Continent, all of them could be considered as suffering a huge loss!’ Duan Ling Tian thought to himself.
The scene that happened before his eyes that time was still vivid in his mind.
Di Yong, the former Island Master of Half Moon Island, had used his Devil Technique to absorb vital essence and killed 85 outstanding powerhouses at their prime who came from the three great Overseas Saint Islands and the three great Mortal Continents…
Soon after, Duan Ling Tian and his group left the Hidden Fog Island.
After they left the Hidden Fog Island, they immediately headed back to Cloud Continent.
Throughout the journey, Han Xue Nai, who had made a breakthrough to the Mortal Shedding Stage Early Stage, brought Duan Ling Tian and the others flying with her. The speed was so fast that Duan Ling Tian’s speed when he came here could not compare to it at all.
When Duan Ling Tian came, it was Yang Hui, Martial Emperor Ling Xuan, who brought them here.
Yang Hui’s cultivation base was only at the Fourth Level Martial Emperor Stage. When it came to speed, it was still a long way away from Han Xue Nai.
With Han Xue Nai’s speed, it only took them a few days to cross the long stretch of the ocean before they reached Cloud Continent without a hitch.
Due to their extremely fast speed, they did not even alert any powerful demon beasts in the ocean region at all.
After Duan Ling Tian and the group of people had arrived at the Northern Outer Land of Cloud Continent, they continued their journey and crossed the Ruo Shui River before successfully arriving at the Inner Land of Cloud Continent.
“Xue Nai, I’d like to ask the two great ancient clans to help me search for the materials,” Duan Ling Tian told Han Xue Nai when they made it back to Cloud Continent.
“No problem.” Han Xue Nai smiled casually. To her, asking the two great ancient clans for help was just a trivial matter.
“Little Gold, Little Black, Little White, the three of you will go and ask the other Martial Emperors and Demon Emperors for help,” Duan Ling Tian told the three little fellows.
“Alright.” The three little fellows’ eyes lit up immediately. This was a very fun task for them. If there was any Demon Emperor or Martial Emperor who refused to help, they would have an excuse to attack.
They had been holding back for too long during their stay in Half Moon Island.
Duan Ling Tian had complete faith in the three little fellows’ strength.
Even Martial Emperor Qing Xuan and Demon Emperor Man Wu, the most powerful people who were active on the surface of Cloud Continent, were no match for them at all… Moreover, Martial Emperor Qing Xuan would definitely help them since he knew who they were.
As for Demon Emperor Man Wu, he had seen Han Xue Nai’s technique before. Even if he was more powerful than them, he would not dare to refuse them as well.
After Han Xue Nai and the three little fellows left, Duan Ling Tian brought the two girls and went to the new site of Ling Tian Sect. He had already learned about the new site of Ling Tian Sect from Han Xue Nai.
The new site of Ling Tian Sect was a towering and lofty mountain peak. Han Xue Nai had named it Ling Tian Peak.
“I’ll bring the two girls to pay respect to Senior Sister Yang Xue first.” Duan Ling Tian extended both his hands and held each of their hands. He brought them to the original site of Ling Tian Sect.
The original base site of Ling Tian Sect was also the site of the former Yin Yang Sect.
After Ke’er and Li Fei heard Duan Ling Tian’s words, their eyes were brimming with tears. At this moment, they could not help but recall the Senior Sister who had sacrificed her own life for their sakes.
Sensing how emotional the two girls were, Duan Ling Tian tightened his grip on their hands as he reassured them, “If Senior Sister Yang knows that both of you are living well, I’m sure she’ll be able to rest in peace in her grave.”
Duan Ling Tian flew swiftly like a meteor that brushed past the sky as he brought the two girls along with him. The speed was so fast that it was extremely terrifying.
Boom! Boom! Boom! Boom! Boom!
All of a sudden, a series of loud explosions resonated in the air and entered Duan Ling Tian and the girls’ ears.
The noise seemed to be approaching them as time went by. As it turned out, the noise came from the front, and it was apparent the noise came from someone fighting.
Duan Ling Tian originally did not have any intention to interfere.
However, a boisterous voice that reverberated in the sky made him halt his movement instantly. His expression had turned solemn.
“Qi Yu! You’re going to die today!” It was this thunderous snarl that made Duan Ling Tian halt his movement.
“Qi Yu?” Ke’er and Li Fei exchanged glances with each other. Both of them could see the shock in each other’s eyes.
They were familiar with this name.
They still remembered when Duan Ling Tian recounted everything he had been through. He had mentioned a third-rate force in the eastern district of the northern desert that was situated in the Southern Outer Land of Cloud Continent.
That third-rate force was called Five Element Sect.
The Five Element Sect was divided into five Peaks — Gold, Wood, Water, Fire, and Earth. The Peak Master of Wood Peak was called Qi Yu.
And their man had a very close relationship with the Wood Peak of Five Element Sect.
“Could it be just a coincidence?” Li Fei asked.
“Well, we’ll find out if we have a look,” Duan Ling Tian responded. In just a blink of an eye, he brought the two girls to the place where the fighting noise had originated from. There were three sturdy middle-aged men who were attacking one man from all sides.
The Heaven and Earth Phenomenon whirled above the sky as numerous ancient black dragons gathered and darted around. This sight was not something one would be able to see in the four great Overseas Saint Islands.
However, Duan Ling Tian’s attention was not on that.
“Peak Master Qi Yu!” Although he only caught a glimpse of the silhouette of the person who was being attacked, he instantly recognized it was Qi Yu, the Peak Master of Wood Peak from Five Element Sect. He was someone who had helped him a lot in the past.
At this moment, Qi Yu was grievously injured and on the verge of dying after being simultaneously attacked by three people.
He would die if this continued on.
After making sure the person in front of him was Qi Yu, Duan Ling Tian vanished from his spot without any warning. When he reappeared again, he was already by Qi Yu’s side.
At the same time, a vast rolling impact wave swept out and sent the three people who attacked Qi Yu flying like an arrow that had left the bowstring. The three of them appeared extremely wretched.
While they were flying, blood continued to stream out of their mouths. It made for a dazzling sight as it splattered in the air.
After they flew for quite a distance, the three of them finally came to a halt. Their faces were as pale as a sheet of paper.
It was only when they had consumed a Healing Medicinal Pill that their injuries were slightly healed.
“W-Who are you?!” The three men finally regained their senses. Their eyes were filled with horror and dread when they looked at Duan Ling Tian.
The three of them were a Demon Emperor’s direct disciples.
However, they were easily sent flying by just one man. One could easily see that this man’s cultivation base was at the Martial Emperor Stage. He was either a Demon Emperor or a Martial Emperor.
At this moment, Qi Yu had also consumed a Healing Medicinal Pill, and his injury had eased up a little.
Initially, he had thought he would definitely die today. It did not cross his mind that somebody would come to his rescue. When he felt a little better, he looked up at his savior. “Thank you, dear savio…”
However, he was stunned before he could even finish his sentence.
He had recognized the purple-clad young man with just a glance. He looked completely similar compared to the past.
If he really had to point out a difference, he would say it was his temperament that had changed. His current temperament appeared to be too profound to be understood.
“D-Duan Ling…” Qi Yu’s voice was filled with confusion as he stared at Duan Ling Tian in disbelief.
Looking at how startled Qi Yu was that he could not even finish calling out his name, Duan Ling Tian smiled and interrupted him, “Peak Master Qi Yu, it has been such a long time since we last met… I can’t believe that when we meet again, you’ve already entered the peak of the Martial Monarch Stage!”
“So what if I’m already at the peak of the Martial Monarch Stage? I’m still nothing compared to you.” Qi Yu sighed. There was a complicated look in his eyes.
When he had first met Duan Ling Tian, his strength was completely insignificant. It was to the point that he could easily crush Duan Ling Tian with just one finger with the strength he possessed at that time.
He felt ashamed that his Martial Dao innate talent was not as good as Duan Ling Tian’s.
When they bade goodbye to each other at the entrance of the Martial Emperor’s secret treasure, he already knew if he managed to encounter Duan Ling Tian again in the future, he would definitely surprise him… However, he did not expect Duan Ling Tian would give him such a huge shock when they finally met again.
He knew his strength elevation could be considered as quite good. Currently, he had even made a breakthrough to the peak of the Martial Monarch Stage.
Only one more step was needed before he would be able to make a breakthrough to the Martial Emperor Stage and become a Martial Emperor.
Even so, he still could not compare to Duan Ling Tian.
There was no need to think about it too much, he knew that Duan Ling Tian’s cultivation base had undoubtedly broken through to the Martial Emperor Stage… Otherwise, he would not be able to send the three attackers flying in just a blink of an eye.
If there was only one of them, they would not have been a match for him at all. However, the three of them had joined forces, and he found it difficult to ward off the blows.
Earlier, he was certain that he would die. Who knew someone would come to his rescue just in the nick of time? Moreover, that person turned out to be Duan Ling Tian.
“The three of us are the direct disciples of Demon Emperor Man Wu… I wonder which Demon or Martial Emperor are you, sir?” One of the three sturdy middle-aged men asked Duan Ling Tian as he cupped his hands before his chest.
When he mentioned Demon Emperor Man Wu, a hint of arrogance could be seen in his eyes.
Demon Emperor Man Wu was one of the two strongest Emperor Stage powerhouses active on the surface of Cloud Continent… Among all of the Demon Emperors on Cloud Continent, he was second to none. No other demons could be compared to him.
As the direct disciple of Martial Emperor Man Wu, his heart was filled with pride.
“The direct disciple of Demon Emperor Man Wu?” Duan Ling Tian glanced indifferently at the three men as he said, “You’re unworthy to know who I am. However, since you’ve injured Peak Master Qi Yu… Then, your fate will be decided by him.”
Duan Ling Tian was calm when he uttered these words even though it sounded outrageous.
