As soon as Duan Ling Tian finished speaking, he flew out immediately, bringing Han Xue Nai and Zhang Yi with him. If he had let them make their way there themselves, it would take too long.
Upon seeing this, Chen Yi Ru followed suit as well. It did not take long before he caught up to Duan Ling Tian. Naturally, he was only able to catch up to Duan Ling Tian because Duan Ling Tian had slowed his speed down. If Duan Ling Tian were to cast his assist-type or movement Divine Ability, Chen Yi Ru would definitely not be able to catch up to Duan Ling Tian.
When Duan Ling Tian saw Han Xue Nai's curious gaze, he began to explain, "To be honest, I didn't expect San Dao to appear as well. Although he has the detection jade token I gave him, in order to detect my whereabouts, he has to be within a certain distance from me."
Han Xue Nai asked, "So his timely appearance is due to you crushing the detection jade token and he happened to be in the vicinity?"
"Yes," Duan Ling Tian nodded as he said, "While we were in that underground palace, I've crushed numerous detection jade tokens, but I failed to contact San Dao… It was only until earlier that I managed to contact San Dao when that Four Tribulation Bodiless Celestial asked me to give him the Celestial Supreme Treasure. At that time, I coordinated with San Dao and put on a play." His smile was cold when he spoke. During the time he was stuck in the underground palace, he had felt extremely vexed. After all, his strength was comparable to a Nine Tribulation Bodiless Celestial, and yet, he was being forced to hide in the underground palace by a Four Tribulation Bodiless Celestial. How could he not feel vexed and frustrated?
Chen Yi Ru who was flying next to them looked at Celestial Saber in his hand with bright eyes as he said, "If master didn't order me to leave that guy alive, I would've personally killed him!"
Chen Yi Ru was extremely interested in the Celestial Saber. After all, he was very good with sabers. With the Celestial Saber in hand, he was confident he could kill the Four Tribulation Bodiless Celestial with just a strike. However, after a while, his gaze at the Celestial Saber turned wistful. He turned to look at Duan Ling Tian respectfully and handed the Celestial Saber back to Duan Ling Tian. After all, the Celestial Saber belonged to Duan Ling Tian. "Master!
"You can have it," Duan Ling Tian said flippantly. "I have several Celestial Supreme Treasures on me. I'd intentionally thrown the Celestial Saber out for you. Since you're a Saber Cultivator, this Celestial Saber will be very beneficial for you. It'll probably increase your strength by two stages! With the Celestial Saber, I'm afraid there aren't many Five Tribulation Bodiless Celestials who will be a match for you providing they don't possess any Celestial Supreme Treasure." A smile appeared on his face when he spoke.
"Master, this is too precious!" Chen Yi Ru exclaimed. Although he was very excited, he did not think he was worthy of receiving such a precious gift. It was a Celestial Supreme Treasure after all, not a weapon from the mundane realms.
Duan Ling Tian frowned and said with slight impatience, "I've already said you can have it. Since when do you like to speak so much nonsense?"
"Thank you, master." Chen Yi Ru no longer refused the Celestial Saber when he heard the impatience in Duan Ling Tian's voice. He became even more respectful of Duan Ling Tian, and he felt extremely touched. After all, he was akin to Duan Ling Tian's servant. Since his master had given him a Celestial Supreme Treasure, it meant that his master valued him and treated him as one of his own.
After listening to Duan Ling Tian's words, realization dawned on Han Xue Nai. "So that's what happened…" It seems like Chen Yi Ru's interaction with that Four Tribulation Bodiless Celestial was just an act. Moreover, it seemed like Duan Ling Tian had prohibited Chen Yi Ru from killing the Four Tribulation Bodiless Celestial because Duan Ling Tian wanted to personally kill the Four Tribulation Bodiless Celestial."
Han Xue Nai, naturally, knew why Duan Ling Tian wanted to personally kill the Four Tribulation Bodiless Celestial. He had been furious and frustrated for being forced to hide in the underground palace from a Four Tribulation Bodiless Celestial. After all, his strength was comparable to an Eighth Tribulation Bodiless Celestial. He had even mastered the technique to snatch weapons away from people. How could he not feel vexed being put in such a situation by a Four Tribulation Bodiless Celestial? If she were in his shoes, she would be furious and frustrated as well. She would definitely want to personally tear that Four Tribulation Bodiless Celestial into a million pieces.
Zhang Yi felt extremely grateful when he heard this. "Luckily, Senior Chen was close to us. Otherwise, I'm afraid we'll still be stuck in that underground palace." Although the Four Tribulation Bodiless Celestial had promised to let them go after obtaining the Celestial Supreme Treasure, he did not trust the Four Tribulation Bodiless Celestial's words. If he was in the Four Tribulation Bodiless Celestial's shoes, he would definitely not let them go. The Four Tribulation Bodiless Celestial would pretend to ask for only a Celestial Supreme Treasure and pretend to leave. When they leave the underground palace, he would definitely kill all of them to obtain a couple more Celestial Supreme Treasures. How could the Four Tribulation Bodiless Celestial miss the chance to obtain a few more Celestial Supreme Treasures?
Although this was Chen Yi Ru's first time meeting Zhang Yi, he could tell Zhang Yi and Duan Ling Tian were friends. Therefore, he said, "There's no need for you to address me as senior since you're my master's friend. You can just call me San Dao like my master." He did not dare to be disrespectful to Zhang Yi even though Zhang Yi did not seem very powerful. After all, Zhang Yi was his master's friend.
At this time, Duan Ling Tian finally made introductions. "San Dao, his name is Zhang Yi." Then, he turned to Zhang Yi and said, "Zhang Yi, his name is Chen Yi Ru even though I call him San Dao. Although he can be considered as my servant or follower, I really don't consider him as such."
Zhang Yi nodded before he said to Chen Yi Ru, "Senior Chen, we'll do it our way. Whether it's our age or strength, you're much older and stronger than me. Therefore, I should address you as senior."
"But..." Although Chen Yi Ru was touched and impressed by Zhang Yi's words, he did not dare to agree to it. After all, he was not certain if Duan Ling Tian would feel displeased.
"Zhang Yi is not someone who cares about common courtesy… Just so as he said," Duan Ling Tian said, clearly aware of Chen Yi Ru's thoughts.
"Yes," Chen Yi Ru responded respectfully. He was extremely moved. In a way, his master gave him respect and upheld his dignity as well.
Duan Ling Tian muttered to himself anxiously as they traveled, "We've been trapped in that place for so long, I wonder if people have already found the location of the inheritance from a Great Overarching Golden Celestial?"
Duan Ling Tian only became more and more anxious as they traveled. He knew that Feng Qing Yang's strength was comparable to Nine Tribulation Bodiless Celestial after obtaining the inheritance from a Great Overarching Golden Celestial. Knowing this, he was desperate to obtain the inheritance from a Great Overarching Golden Celestial as well.
Duan Ling Tian thought to himself confidently, 'With my current strength, I'm sure I'll be able to obtain the inheritance from a Great Overarching Golden Celestial. At that time, even a Nine Tribulation Bodiless Celestial won't be a match for me! When I return to the Saint Province Realm, it doesn't matter if it's the dragon clan or Devil Clans, even if they send their strongest men over, I'll still be able to easily kill them!'
In this world where the strong ruled, if one possessed peerless strength, one would be able to dominate the world!
Duan Ling Tian continued thinking to himself excitedly, 'Even if my strength would be nothing in the Devata Realms, but after obtaining the inheritance from a Great Overarching Golden Celestial, I might just become the strongest person in all mundane realms! Once I obtain the inheritance, even if my strength doesn't increase by a few stages, I'll still be far stronger than Nine Tribulation Bodiless Celestials if my strength just rises by one stage!'
The more Duan Ling Tian thought about this, the more anxious he became to arrive at the location of the inheritance from a Great Overarching Golden Celestial.
Han Xue Nai could sense Duan Ling Tian's anxiety and urgency so she said reassuringly, "Brother Ling Tian, don't be anxious… I don't think people will be able to find the location of the inheritance from a Great Overarching Golden Celestial so quickly."
Duan Ling Tian did not respond to Han Xue Nai. Instead, he turned to Zhang Yi and asked urgently, "Do you know how long it took before people found the location of the inheritance from a Great Overarching Golden Celestial the last time the Beyond Heaven Secret Zone opened?"
"Yes, I read about it," Zhang Yi replied, "According to the records in our sect, the last time the Beyond Heaven Secret Zone opened, the location of the inheritance from a Great Overarching Golden Celestial was only found by Feng Qing Yang from Saint Province Realm after three years and three months…"
