Han Xue Nai who had been hiding in the underground palace asked skeptically, "So, you only want the Celestial Supreme Treasures?"
The Four Tribulation Bodiless Celestial, who had cultivated Soul Congregation Embodiment and was hiding somewhere outside, said in a reassuring tone, "Yes…" When he spoke, his voice seemed to echo from all directions.
After hearing the Four Tribulation Bodiless Celestial's words, Han Xue Nai turned to look at Duan Ling Tian and said hesitantly, "Brother Ling Tian…" In her opinion, it was worth it to give up their Celestial Supreme Treasures if they could leave this place.
Duan Ling Tian was, naturally, aware of Han Xue Navi's thoughts. He shook his head and asked in return, "You trust his words, Xue Nai?"
"Brother Ling Tian, we don't have any other choice at this moment. If we don't do anything, we'll have to give up on the inheritance left by the Great Overarching Golden Celestial. This might not affect Zhang Yi and me, but it'll definitely affect you," Han Xue Nai said with a bitter smile. Since the lightning penalty oath did not work in the Beyond Heaven Secret Zone, they had no way to make sure the Four Tribulation Bodiless Celestial was not lying. However, she truly felt they had no other choice than to do as the Four Tribulation Bodiless Celestial had requested. After all, all he wanted was the Celestial Supreme Treasures.
Seeing Han Xue Nai's expectant gaze, Duan Ling Tian only shook his head. After a while, he said, "Since you trust him, I'll give him the Celestial Supreme Treasures. I want to see if he dares to reveal himself when he takes the Celestial Supreme Treasure…" After he finished speaking, he took out one of his Celestial Supreme Treasures and threw it out of the underground palace.
Duan Ling Tian had thrown out the Celestial Saber that he had snatched from the Seven Tribulation Bodiless Celestial whom he had killed. He did not exert much energy when he threw the Celestial Saber out. The Celestial Saber landed on a bush close to the point of entrance and exit of the underground palace. He threw it out as though he was throwing garbage.
As soon as the Celestial Saber landed on the bush, the Four Tribulation Bodiless Celestial who had cultivated the Soul Congregation Embodiment technique scoffed loudly, still hiding. "Do you think I'm going to fall for your trick? Don't think I'm unaware that you intentionally threw the Celestial Saber so close to the entrance in hopes that I'll personally appear and retrieve it. I'm so sorry to disappoint you, but I can just control my puppet to pick the Celestial Saber up."
As soon as the Four Tribulation Bodiless Celestial finished speaking, a figure flashed from the side of the forest and appeared close to the Celestial Saber in just a blink of an eye.
As soon as the puppet appeared, the Four Tribulation Bodiless Celestial said threateningly, "Duan Ling Tian, if you dare to destroy my puppet, I'll make sure none of you can leave this place even if you give me all your Celestial Supreme Treasures!" Just like before, his voice seemed to come from all directions when he spoke.
Duan Ling Tian who was still hiding in the underground palace said nonchalantly, "I'm not interested in destroying your puppet."
At this moment, the puppet from the Four Tribulation Bodiless Celestial finally retrieved the Celestial Saber on top of the bush. Upon seeing this, the Four Tribulation Bodiless Celestial who was hiding somewhere sighed in relief.
Duan Ling Tian's voice suddenly rang in the air. "Just because I'm not interested in destroying your puppet, it doesn't mean that other people aren't interested as well..."
Almost as soon as Duan Ling Tian finished speaking, a thunderous and terrifying explosion rang in the air, destroying the puppet that had just retrieved the Celestial Saber. When the dust settled, no traces of the puppet could be seen at all. Only the Celestial Saber was unharmed as it fell to the ground.
An old man appeared like a gust of wind and quickly took the Celestial Saber. The old man laughed as he looked at the Celestial Saber he had just obtained and exclaimed excitedly, "I'm really lucky to be able to obtain a Celestial Supreme Treasure here! It seems like my trip to the Beyond Heaven Secret Zone is not in vain!"
"Duan Ling Tian!" The Four Tribulation Bodiless Celestial who had cultivated the Soul Congregation Embodiment technique and was hiding asked in a low and anxious voice, "He just took your Celestial Supreme Treasure, why aren't you killing him?"
Upon hearing this, Duan Ling Tian scoffed loudly. "Do you think I'm a kid? If I attack him, won't you just seize the chance and use your soul attack against me when I'm preoccupied?"
"You!" The Four Tribulation Bodiless Celestial was furious when he heard Duan Ling Tian's words. Although Duan Ling Tian's words were not wrong, he was angry that his thoughts were easily exposed by Duan Ling Tian. All of a sudden, he cried out, "Oh, no!" He suddenly felt a Divine Consciousness sweeping over him. In just an instant, it shrouded the place he was hiding in, causing him to feel exposed and vulnerable.
The Divine Consciousness belonged to the old man who had just obtained the Celestial Saber. Similarly, the old man was also a Four Tribulation Bodiless Celestial.
The Four Tribulation Bodiless Celestial who was hiding began to panic when he felt the killing intent from the old man. He hurriedly said, "You can't kill me! If you kill me, Duan Ling Tian who's hiding in the underground palace will definitely kill you to snatch the Celestial Saber back once you kill me! I advise you to leave with the Celestial Supreme Treasure now since I'm able to stop him from leaving the underground palace!"
The Four Tribulation Bodiless Celestial was truly afraid the old man would attack him. Although their cultivation base was the same, the old man had just obtained a Celestial Supreme Treasure. Based on this, he knew he was no match for the old man.
When the old man heard the words of the Four Tribulation Bodiless Celestial who was hiding, he asked in a low voice, "Duan Ling Tian? Is he the Eminent Celestial who's rumored to have killed two or three Seven Tribulation Bodiless Celestials?"
The Four Tribulation Bodiless Celestial hurriedly reply. "Yes, that's him!"
Upon hearing the Four Tribulation Bodiless Celestial's words, the old man began to laugh uproariously.
The Four Tribulation Bodiless Celestial who was still hiding was baffled when he heard the old man laughing. He asked, "What're you laughing at?"
"I'm laughing at your naivety!" The old man said mockingly, "If Duan Ling Tian is truly here, what can you do to stop him? You think you can defeat him? Are you dreaming?"
"I can stop him!" The Four Tribulation Bodiless Celestial said in a huff when he heard the skepticism in the old man's voice. "Regardless of how strong he is, he's still an Eminent Celestial. For this reason, his soul is vulnerable. Although I'm just a Four Tribulation Bodiless Celestial, I've cultivated the Soul Congregation Embodiment technique so I'm able to cast soul attack! Unless Duan Ling Tian is able to attack me before I cast a soul attack, he'll definitely die if I attack him!" His voice was filled with confidence when he spoke.
As soon as the Four Tribulation Bodiless Celestial finished speaking, the old man said, "Oh, really?"
The Four Tribulation Bodiless Celestial's expression changed drastically at this moment. He just discovered that while he was speaking to the old man, he had become distracted and unconsciously withdrew his Divine Consciousness from the point of entrance and exit of the underground palace. He cried out, "No!"
A flash of sword ray shot in the air before it pierced the Four Tribulation Bodiless Celestial's glabella, effectively killing him. An unresigned expression was still etched on his face even in death. If he was not distracted by the old man, he would not have made a mistake that had cost him his life!
As soon as the Four Tribulation Bodiless Celestial died, a purple-clad young man appeared nearby. He stood with his hands behind his back as he gazed indifferently at the Four Tribulation Bodiless Celestial's corpse that was slowly fading away.
"What happened?" Han Xue Nai and Zhang Yi who were still in the underground palace were dumbfounded. Everything had happened in just a blink of an eye that they could not even react in time.
Zhang Yi who had not recovered from his shock was further shocked when he saw the old man, a Four Tribulation Bodiless Celestial, who had picked up the Celestial Saber earlier and distracted the hidden Four Tribulation Bodiless Celestial bowing respectfully at Duan Ling Tian. He even addressed Duan Ling Tian as master! "Master."
On the other hand, Han Xue Nai was not shocked when she saw the old man. She had recognized him as soon as she saw him. The old man was a Four Tribulation Bodiless Celestial and Duan Ling Tian's follower, Chen Yi Ru! However, she was confused about Chen Yi Ru's sudden appearance. Even after she left the underground palace and met up with Duan Ling Tian, this question still percolated in her mind. She could not help but ask, "Brother Ling Tian, what's going on? Why is he here?"
"Let's talk as we travel!" Duan Ling Tian said. He seemed to be in a hurry as he looked at the Feng Shui compass in his hand. "We've wasted a lot of time here. Let's find the location of the inheritance left behind by a Great Overarching Golden Celestial!"
