Chapter 2354 I, Duan Ling Tian, Am Back!
Usually, Duan Ling Tian would definitely correct Chen Yi Ru when he mistook Gan Ru Yan as his woman and addressed her as madam. However, he did not bother this time due to the bomb that Chen Yi Ru dropped regarding Sword Saint Feng Qing Yang. He had come to a halt, staring at Chen Yi Ru.
Ke’er, Duan Si Ling, and Gan Ru Yan, naturally, stopped moving as well since Duan Ling Tian was the one who was carrying them with his force.
When Chen Yi Ru and his two followers saw Duan Ling Tian had stopped moving, they followed suit.
Everyone was staring at Chen Yi Ru at this time. They were clearly very intrigued by the events of the past. He did not want to keep them waiting so he quickly said, “At that time, when Senior Feng Qing Yang intended to eradicate the three great sects, the dragon and phoenix clans sent five Seven Tribulation Bodiless Celestials and two Eight Tribulation Bodiless Celestials to stop him! He fought all seven Bodiless Celestials on his own. He managed to kill two of the Seven Tribulation Bodiless Celestials from the phoenix clan and one Seven Tribulation Bodiless Celestial and one Eight Tribulation Bodiless Celestial from the dragon clan… He was, naturally, severely injured, but he managed to retreat in time. Most of the Bodiless Celestials thought Senior Feng Qing Yang could ignore the threats from the dragon and phoenix clan and eradicate the three great sects once he recovered from his injuries. However, before he could fully recover, one of the Eight Tribulation Bodiless Celestials from the phoenix clan managed to overcome the Bodiless Celestial Tribulation and became a Nine Tribulation Bodiless Celestial!” His voice became lower when he reached the end of his sentence.
Nine Tribulation Bodiless Celestial!
Shock and disbelief appeared in Duan Ling Tian’s eyes when he heard Chen Yi Ru mentioned a Nine Tribulation Bodiless Celestial. A Nine Tribulation Bodiless Celestial was truly someone who stood at the peak in the mundane realms. Even in the Devil Clans with their tremendously long history, there was only a handful of Nine Tribulation Bodiless Celestials. Based on that, it was not difficult for Duan Ling Tian to guess there were not many Nine Tribulation Bodiless Celestials among the humans as well. For this reason, he was surprised to hear there was a Nine Tribulation Bodiless Celestial in the phoenix clan during Senior Feng Qing Yang’s time.
“So the reason why Senior Feng Qing Yang failed to eradicate three great sects is due to the phoenix clan’s Nine Tribulation Bodiless Celestial?” Duan Ling Tian asked. Senior Feng Qing Yang managed to kill an Eight Tribulation Bodiless Celestial after becoming an Eminent Celestial. How terrifyingly strong! He thought to himself, ‘Even if I cast the Elementary Devouring Tactic and comprehended all five stages of the Supreme Sword Dao Mental Cultivation Method, the Sovereign Heart Sword, my strength would at most be on par with a Seven Tribulation Bodiless Celestial! At that time I’ll be close to my ascension. Let alone an Eight Tribulation Bodiless Celestial, it would be difficult for me to kill a Seven Tribulation Bodiless Celestial.’
Duan Ling Tian was surprised that Feng Qing Yang managed to kill an Eight Tribulation Bodiless Celestial even though he was only an Eminent Celestial. He could not figure out how Feng Qing Yang had accomplished such a feat!
“Well, that’s part of the reason.” Chen Yi Ru nodded. “If Senior Feng Qing Yang intended to escape, even the Nine Tribulation Bodiless Celestial couldn’t stop him… For this reason, Senior Feng Qing Yang eventually reached an agreement with the dragon and phoenix clans; Senior Feng Qing Yang would no longer attack the three great sects, and the dragon and phoenix clans promised to not interfere in the matter between the Seven Absolutes Sect and the three great sects as long as the Seven Absolutes Sect doesn’t destroy the three great sects.”
Duan Ling Tian nodded. This perfectly explained why Senior Feng Qing Yang did not eradicate the three great sects.
“Master.” Chen Yi Ru seemed to have remembered something at this moment. He looked at Duan Ling Tian and reminded him solemnly, “Due to the pact between the dragon clan, the phoenix clan, and Feng Qing Yang, the dragon and phoenix clans have left the Seven Absolutes Sect alone… However, if someone as powerful as Senior Feng Qing Yang appears again in the Seven Absolutes Sect, they would definitely interfere even if they don’t eradicate the sect. With your current strength, it’s easy for you to eradicate the three great sects. However, the dragon and phoenix clans definitely would not sit around and watch as you do so.” He did not want Duan Ling Tian to get on the dragon and phoenix clan’s bad side. After all, Duan Ling Tian might not be able to survive even if his strength was comparable to a Six Tribulation Bodiless Celestial.
“Ok.” Duan Ling Tian nodded solemnly as a wave of helplessness washed over him. He was on a high previously when he left the city. He thought he could rush back to the Fire Worship Sect and kill Tang Xuan, the Sect Leader of the Fire Worship Sect before eradicating the sect. After that, he would move to the Black Kshetra Sect and the Heaven Divination Sect. He wanted to avenge the disciples from the Seven Absolutes Sect who were killed by the three great sects. This was his duty as the Sect Leader of the Seven Absolutes Sect! Who knew the three great sects would have such strong supporters?
‘The dragon and phoenix clans can easily rebuild the three great sects even if I manage to eradicate the sect before anyone discovers it. Moreover, it’s extremely risky since the dragon and phoenix clans would definitely target the Seven Absolutes Sect once they discover the truth!’ Many thoughts flashed in Duan Ling Tian’s mind at this moment. It might be easy for him to eradicate the three great sects, but it was difficult to deal with the dragon and phoenix clans. ‘Unless I can overpower all the Bodiless Celestials in the dragon and phoenix clans, it’s not wise for me to eradicate the three great sects.’ No matter how unwilling he felt, he had to accept the reality.
When Duan Ling Tian regained his senses, his eyes were filled with rage. ‘Even if I can’t eradicate the three great sects, Tang Xuan, the Sect Leader of Fire Worship Sect, must die!”
Duan Ling Tian vented all his anger and frustration on Tang Xuan at this moment. Since he feared the dragon and phoenix clan, he could not eradicate the Fire Worship Sect. However, killing the Sect Leader of Fire Worship Sect was not off the table. According to the pact, the dragon and phoenix clans would not intervene as long as the three great sects remained.
As the fire of fury raged in Duan Ling Tian, he said to the three ladies, “Let’s go!”
Chen Yi Ru and his two followers quickly followed along.
Gan Ru Yan was still lost in her thoughts when Duan Ling Tian continued bringing them along to the Fire Worship Sect. ‘That Sword Saint Feng Qing Yang was only an Eminent Celestial, and yet, he managed to kill an Eight Tribulation Bodiless Celestial? Moreover, he was even able to escape from a Nine Tribulation Bodiless Celestial!’
Duan Ling Tian and his companions traveled at an incredibly fast speed. It did not take long before they arrived in the western region of the Upper Province of the Dao Martial Saint Land. After that, it took even less time for them to arrive at the Fire Worship Sect’s estate.
“Fire Worship Sect… I, Duan Ling Tian, am back!” Duan Ling Tian’s eyes gleamed brightly like the stars as he looked at the Fire Worship Sect’s estate in front of him.
Duan Ling Tian brought Ke’er and the others and entered the Fire Worship Sect’s estate. He quickly flew past the Four Symbol Sanctums to the Fire Worship Sect’s Saint Land.
Chen Yi Ru and his two followers, naturally, followed closely behind.
Gan Ru Yan was looking at the Fire Worship Sect’s Saint Land, reminiscing about the past, when…
“Tang Xuan! Come out!” A thunderous voice rang in the air. It spread through the Four Symbol Sanctums and the Saint Land.
Meanwhile, Duan Ling Tian flew past the clouds above the Fire Worship Sect’s Saint Land before he arrived at a floating island that was located at the top.
This floating island was the cultivation place of the Sect Leader of Fire Worship Sect, Tang Xuan.
It had been quite a few years since Duan Ling Tian was here. He did not feel nostalgic, he only felt sorrow now that he was back here. This was where Elder Huo had sacrificed himself so he and the girls could escape from Tang Xuan to the Lower Province of the Dao Martial Saint Land!
‘Tang Xuan! Come out!’
These words reverberated thunderously through the Fire Worship Sect’s estate!
