"It doesn't matter who from which mundane realm obtains the inheritance of a Great Overarching Golden Celestial, it has nothing to do with us oldies," a Bodiless Celestial said with a sigh.
Similar to other heaven-rank treasure vaults and human-rank treasure vaults in the Beyond Heaven Secret Zone, the location of the inheritance from a Great Overarching Golden Celestial also prohibited Bodiless Celestials from entering. Only non-Bodiless Celestials were allowed to enter and had the opportunity to obtain the inheritance from a Great Overarching Golden Celestial. Therefore, all the Bodiless Celestials could only watch and wait outside of the entrance of where the inheritance from a Great Overarching Golden Celestial was located.
A middle-aged Bodiless Celestial said confidently, "I think that Eminent Celestial from the Saint Province Realm, Duan Ling Tian, will obtain the inheritance from the Great Overarching Golden Celestial!" Although he did not speak loudly, everyone heard his words since it was silent when he had spoken.
"Duan Ling Tian? He's the one that's rumored to have killed two Seven Tribulation Bodiless Celestials, right? Moreover, it's said that one of the Seven Tribulation Bodiless Celestials had just obtained a Celestial Supreme Treasure at that time..."
"Is he the one who mastered a Celestial Technique that can forcefully snatch away Celestial Supreme Treasures?"
Many of the Bodiless Celestials present on the scene had heard about the rumors regarding Duan Ling Tian, but they did not put much stock in the rumors. How could an Eminent Celestial, prior to obtaining the inheritance from a Great Overarching Golden Celestial, be so strong? Even Feng Qing Yang who obtained the inheritance from a Great Overarching Golden Celestial the last time the Beyond Heaven Secret Zone opened only had strength comparable to a Six Tribulation Bodiless Celestial before obtaining the inheritance.
"Yes, I'm talking about him!" The middle-aged Bodiless Celestial nodded.
Many Bodiless Celestials scoffed when they heard the middle-aged Bodiless Celestial's words. Most of them did not agree with him.
"I don't think so! It's impossible for an Eminent Celestial to be so strong without obtaining the inheritance from a Great Overarching Golden Celestial!"
"I don't think he's that strong either."
Upon hearing everyone's words, the middle-aged Bodiless Celestial protested, "Gentlemen! It's true! I didn't witness Duan Ling Tian killing the Seven Tribulation Bodiless Celestial with just a strike outside the heaven-rank treasure vault. However, I witnessed him killing the Seven Tribulation Bodiless Celestial who had obtained a Celestial Supreme Treasure. At that time, he cast a mysterious Celestial Technique that snatched the Celestial Supreme Treasure from that Seven Bodiless Celestial. His strength is comparable to an Eight Tribulation Bodiless Celestial when he killed that Seven Tribulation Bodiless Celestial!" He spoke vehemently as he defended his words. It was only natural that he did not like people doubting him since he had personally witnessed Duan Ling Tian's strength.
"I was there as well!" Another Bodiless Celestial chimed in at this moment, "He's not lying. Duan Ling Tian really has a way to snatch Celestial Supreme Treasures away. Moreover, it seemed like it could steal all weapons. At that time, the sword I carried with me was snatched away by him as well. Since then, I no longer carried my sword on my back." Fear lingered on his face when he spoke.
"Could it be true?"
"Well, we can dispute it if only one person says this. However, two people are saying the same thing now, and it doesn't seem like they're lying."
After the two Bodiless Celestials had spoken up, most people began to doubt themselves. They were no longer sure if it was impossible for Duan Ling Tian to be so strong.
Then, another Bodiless Celestial spoke up, "I wasn't there when Duan Ling Tian killed the Seven Tribulation Bodiless Celestial who had obtained a Celestial Supreme Treasure. However, I was outside the heaven-rank treasure vault when he killed a Seven Tribulation Bodiless Celestial with just a strike. I swear my words are true. It's unfortunate the lightning penalty oath doesn't work in the Beyond Heaven Secret Zone. Otherwise, I'll swear on it that I'm telling the truth!"
Upon hearing this and seeing the earnest expression on the face of the Bodiless Celestial who had just spoken, everyone doubted themselves even more.
"I-is he really that strong?"
"If he's truly that strong, I'm afraid no one's a match for him in the fight for the inheritance from a Great Overarching Golden Celestial."
"Yes! If the rumors are true, even if all those who had entered the location where the inheritance is kept joined forces, I'm afraid they won't be a match for him!"
All of them stared at the misty place ahead of them where the inheritance from a Great Overarching Golden Celestial was located as they chatted among themselves. Although many people had gone in there to search for the inheritance, the Bodiless Celestials were unaware that Duan Ling Tian had yet to enter that place.
At this moment, Duan Ling Tian was facing his first obstacle since he had entered the Beyond Heaven Secret Zone. In fact, it was quite a big obstacle to overcome.
Duan Ling Tian leaned against the wall near the exit of the heaven-rank treasure as his expression darkened. He muttered under his breath, "I thought I was extremely lucky to have encountered another heaven-rank treasure vault, who knew I would encounter a Bodiless Celestial who had cultivated the Soul Congregation Embodiment technique!"
At this moment, the expressions on Han Xue Nai and Zhang Yi's faces were unsightly as well.
Han Xue Nai asked, "Brother Ling Tian, is it really impossible to ferret him out and kill him? He's merely a Four Tribulation Bodiless Celestial after all. I'm certain you'll be able to kill him if you unleash all your strength. He won't have time to cast soul attacks on you, right?"
"Xue Nai, I've told you earlier… He's very cunning. Moreover, the exit leads to a forest. It'll be difficult to target him. He's very good at hiding his energy and he can manipulate puppets that look identical to him and are capable of confusing me. This is why I can't simply attack him if I can't distinguish him from his puppets. If I attack a puppet, he'll have a chance to use a soul attack on me," Duan Ling Tian explained with a grave expression on his face. He felt extremely vexed. With his current strength, he was confident even if he had to face a Nine Tribulation Bodiless Celestial. He might not be able to win, but he would, at least, be evenly matched with a Nine Tribulation Bodiless Celestial. If a Nine Tribulation Bodiless Celestial was the one guarding outside, he would have rushed out to confront him. His frustration felt palpable as he thought to himself, 'We've been trapped in here for two months by a Four Tribulation Bodiless Celestial!'
There was nothing Duan Ling Tian could do even if the other party was only a Four Tribulation Bodiless Celestial since the Four Tribulation Bodiless Celestial had cultivated the Soul Congregation Embodiment technique, enabling him to cast soul attacks. If this was all, Duan Ling Tian could still defeat him. However, the other party did not only utilize the terrain in the area that was advantageous to him, but the other party was also adept at controlling puppets that looked identical to him. Duan Ling Tian was not 100% certain he would be able to distinguish what was real and what was fake, and he did not dare to take the risk. If he failed, he would certainly die.
"Duan Ling Tian!" A voice rang from outside at this moment. However, the specific direction was difficult to pinpoint. "Are you planning to hide in there until the Beyond Heaven Secret Zone closes? Think this through, if you continue to stay in there, you might not be able to leave the secret zone at all. At that time, you and your companions will be trapped here." This was clearly the voice of the Four Tribulation Bodiless Celestial who had cultivated the Soul Congregation Embodiment technique. At this moment, he was still hiding.
Duan Ling Tian did not deign to reply.
However, Han Xue Nai said with a scoff, "So what if we're trapped in the Beyond Heaven Secret Zone? Based on your words, it seems like you're planning to accompany us in here as well. Let's all be trapped in here then!"
After Han Xue Nai had spoken, the other party was silent for a long time. After a while, he finally said in an attempt to convince Han Xue Nai and the two men, "Little girl, you're, indeed, clever… I can't deny your words. However, does this mean you plan on giving up on the inheritance from a Great Overarching Golden Celestial? After all, with Duan Ling Tian's current strength, it would be extremely easy for him to obtain the inheritance. Is it necessary to give up on the inheritance of a Great Overarching Golden Celestial just so you can hold onto a few Celestial Supreme Treasures?"
