As the vast and powerful aura surged out of Duan Ling Tian's body, he opened his eyes. They were shining so bright as though they were two small suns. It was fortunate no one was around. Otherwise, they would have been blinded by how bright his eyes were.
As the light in Duan Ling Tian's eyes gradually dimmed, he could not help but begin to laugh heartily. At this moment, it seemed as though all the frustration and sadness he had bottled up had disappeared! This was because he had successfully broken through to the Sixth Form of the Saint Celestial Stage! The Sixth Form of Saint Celestial Stage was also known as the Heavenly Soul Form. This stage allowed one's soul to be one with the universe, allowing one's soul to be advanced and be refined. It was also the foundation of the Seventh Form of Saint Celestial Stage, the Heaven Defying Form. Apart from possessing a body that no longer aged, a large part of the reason why powerhouses at the Seventh Form Saint Celestial Stage had endless life was due to their souls becoming one with the universe when their cultivation base was at the Sixth Form of the Saint Celestial Stage.
When my cultivation base was at the Fifth Form of Saint Celestial Stage, I could create an opening in the space barrier between this pseudo realm and the Upper Province by using all my strength and the Jasper Celestial Sword... Now that my cultivation base is at the Sixth Form of the Saint Celestial Stage, I should be able to create an opening in the space barrier without using the Jasper Celestial Sword!' Duan Ling Tian thought to himself before he straightened his body and landed on the ground.
I don't know how much time has passed while I was in closed-door cultivation.' With this thought in mind, Duan Ling Tian went to look for Elder Huo.
"Not bad... You've broken through to the Sixth Form of the Saint Celestial Stage. The Sixth Form of the Saint Celestial Stage means your soul will be one with the universe of this mundane realm. If you use your soul attack, I think no one under the Seventh Form of the Saint Celestial Stage would be able to defend against it!" Elder Huo said as soon as he saw Duan Ling Tian.
The soul attack Elder Huo mentioned was the soul attack Duan Ling Tian discovered in the past by combining his evolved Spiritual Energy with his Strange Pupil! In the past, Duan Ling Tian had mostly used that move to harass and distract his opponents.
After listening to Elder Huo, Duan Ling Tian realized his soul attack had become a lot stronger after he had broken through to the Sixth Form Saint of the Celestial Stage, the Heavenly Soul Form!
"Elder Huo, how long was I in closed-door cultivation?" This was what Duan Ling Tian wanted to know most. He wanted to know how long he had spent in closed-door cultivation. After all, if he had taken too long, the Sect Leader of the Fire Worship Sect might have already come out of his closed-door cultivation.
Once the Sect Leader of the Fire Worship Sect came out from his closed-door cultivation, Ke'er and their daughter would definitely be in danger! This was not something he wished to see!
"Three years," Elder Huo answered immediately as though he could hear the urgency in Duan Ling Tian's voice.
Upon hearing Elder Huo, Duan Ling Tian's expression turned solemn. "It took so long..." He knew very well that when Elder Huo said three years, he was referring to the time outside. Three years in the outside world were three decades on the fourth floor of the Seven Treasures Exquisite Pagoda!
Three years... Do you think the Sect Leader of the Fire Worship Sect has come out from his closed-door cultivation?' Duan Ling Tian's expression darkened. 'I hope he hasn't... After all, for a powerhouse at his stage, it's not unusual for them to be in closed-door cultivation for eight to ten years.' Although he tried to console himself with this thought, he still felt restless.
Currently, all Duan Ling Tian wanted to do was to hurry to the Fire Worship Sect to rescue Ke'er and their daughter! After that, they would have to think of a way to return to the Lower Province of the Dao Martial Saint Land.
Three years had passed. Duan Ling Tian was afraid the Devil Clans had completely occupied the Lower Province! His family and friends were still in the Lower Province after all.
"Elder Huo, I have to leave this place now... I need you to guide me so I can avoid the Killing Formations," Duan Ling Tian said to Elder Huo. He did not even wait for Elder Huo to respond before he left the Seven Treasures Exquisite Pagoda with just a thought and appeared in the pseudo realm created by the three Eminent Devils.
Duan Ling Tian could not help but feel wistful appearing in the pseudo realm again after three years.
Three Devils who have ascended left such a pseudo realm behind to kill so many of our Saint Province Realm's powerhouses... We, humans, have lost so many powerhouses. We'll definitely be at a disadvantage when we face the Devil Clans!' Duan Ling Tian thought to himself with a heavy heart.
After a while, Duan Ling Tian made up his mind. 'After leaving this place, I'll go to Sin City before returning to the Fire Worship Sect!'
Although there was nothing Duan Ling Tian wanted more than to return to the Fire Worship Sect as fast as he could to rescue Ke'er and their daughter, he felt like he was on pins and needles when he thought about the fact that the Devil Clans had invaded the Lower Province, but the people in the Upper Province were completely unaware.
Although it has been rumored that the Devil Clans might have invaded the Lower Province of Dao Martial Saint Land and is likely to invade the Upper Province soon, most people in the Upper Province were only slightly nervous. After some time, they weren't even bothered anymore. However, I can confirm now that the Devil Clans have invaded the Dao Martial Saint Land, and their first stop is the Lower Province,' Duan Ling Tian thought to himself, 'Everyone in the Upper Province has to know about this. I'm sure everyone has already found out about the deaths of the powerhouses in this pseudo realm. However, they might not know that it's caused by three Eminent Devils!'
For this reason, Duan Ling Tian planned to go to Sin City to reveal the truth before he returns to the Fire Worship Sect!
Everyone in the Upper Province of the Dao Martial Saint Land deserved to know the truth!
"Let's go." Elder Huo's voice rang in Duan Ling Tian's ear to remind him to head to the space barrier between the pseudo realm and the Upper Province.
After that, Duan Ling Tian kept the Seven Treasures Exquisite Pagoda and made his move.
There's no shortage of powerhouses above the Seventh Form of the Saint Celestial Stage who died here three years ago... Those powerhouses must have a lot of valuable cultivation resources in their Spatial Rings. It's a pity that even their Spatial Rings were destroyed by the Killing Formation. All those cultivation resources have disappeared just like that.' Duan Ling Tian sighed when he thought about this. Once a Spatial Ring was destroyed, it was only natural the things kept inside were destroyed as well.
Under Elder Huo's guidance, Duan Ling Tian avoided one Killing Formation after another. Eventually, he reached the area near the space barrier.
At this moment, Duan Ling Tian seemed to have discovered something as he cried out in surprise, "Eh?"
As it turned out, when Duan Ling Tian arrived near the space barrier, he found a large amount of dried blood. Based on the texture, it was apparent it had been there for a few years now.
It seems like people came in to investigate the deaths of those powerhouses... I'm afraid those who came to investigate have died as well!' Duan Ling Tian could not help but sigh again. 'I hope not many people came to investigate. Otherwise, our Saint Province Realm would have lost another group of powerhouses at or above the Seventh Form of the Saint Celestial Stage!'
Duan Ling Tian knew very well that people who were able to create an opening in the space barrier had to be at the Seventh Form of the Saint Celestial Stage at least! The dried blood must belong to those powerhouses at or above the Seventh Form of the Saint Celestial Stage.
Naturally, Duan Ling Tian was unaware that only two people had broken into the pseudo realm, and they did not die even though they had to pay a heavy price. He would not have sighed if he was aware of this!
At some point, a sword appeared in Duan Ling Tian's hands. It was the Thousand Inscriptions Saint Sword he obtained when he just arrived in Sin City from the Ground Ax Alliance's men.
Go!' Duan Ling Tian thought to himself as Sun Saint Origin surged out of Duan Ling Tian's body like an angry dragon into the Thousand Inscriptions Saint Sword that he held in his hands. Xiu!
The Thousand Inscription Saint Sword flew out on its own with the third stage of the Sovereign Heart Sword and slashed the air.
The sound of a tear rang in the air as an extremely small crack appeared in front of Duan Ling Tian. The crack was less than a foot long.
Now that my cultivation base is at the Sixth Form of the Saint Celestial Stage, my Sun Saint Origin is stronger than the Saint Origin of ordinary powerhouses at the Sixth Form of the Saint Celestial Stage. However, it's still weaker compared to the Saint Origin of a powerhouse at the Seventh Form of the Saint Celestial Stage.' Duan Ling Tian discovered this from his attack.
This also proved Elder Huo was right when he said the Sun Force that fused with his body would not be as powerful the stronger he became!
When Duan Ling Tian successfully passed the Heavenly Tribulation in the future and managed to ascend to a Devata Realm, he would no longer have an advantage over people with the same cultivation base even though he had the Sun Force. The Sun Force would only have a small effect on his power.
It seems like if I don't use the Elementary Devouring Tactic or the Jasper Celestial Sword, I won't be able to create an opening in the space barrier and return to the Upper Province,' Duan Ling Tian thought to himself.
When Duan Ling Tian thought of this, he instantly cast the assist-type Divine Ability. "Elementary Devouring Tactic!"
In just an instant, many whirlpools appeared around Duan Ling Tian as they absorbed the Heaven and Earth Spirit Energy in his surroundings like a bottomless pit. It did not take too long before Duan Ling Tian's Sun Saint Origin was raised to its limit.
Duan Ling Tian cried out, "Go!" The Thousand Inscriptions Saint Sword in his hand flew out again.
