"What… What's happening?"
The fog surrounding the location of the inheritance of a Great Overarching Golden Celestial that had been calm all this while began stirring as though there was a great disturbance. The aura it emitted was strange as well.
Duan Ling Tian came to a halt immediately.
Whoosh! Whoosh! Whoosh!
The sound of wind howling rang in the air as though a storm was brewing in the fog. Before anyone had time to react, the fog began to disperse along with the wind.
The wind blew so violently that it caused Duan Ling Tian, Han Xue Nai, and Zhang Yi's robes to flutter in the air.
After a moment, when the wind died down, the fog became clearly thinner.
"Is that…" At this time, Duan Ling Tian could faintly see a few dozen figures shrouded in the fog.
Suddenly, a Bodiless Celestial exclaimed in surprise, "Eh! We can extend our Divine Consciousness in there now! It seems like the Formations protecting the location of the inheritance from a Great Overarching Golden Celestial have disappeared!"
As soon as Duan Ling Tian heard this, he quickly extended his Divine Consciousness. Indeed, he could extend his Divine Consciousness into the location of the inheritance now. His expression changed drastically as he thought to himself, 'Our Divine Consciousness is no longer restricted because the Formations protecting the inheritance of the Great Overarching Golden Celestial is gone… There's only one reason for this; someone must have already obtained the inheritance from a Great Overarching Golden Celestial!'
Although Duan Ling Tian had been worried earlier that he had spent too much time in the heaven-rank treasure vault causing him to be late, he did not expect he would really be too late. Someone had obtained the inheritance from a Great Overarching Golden Celestial! He did not even manage to enter the location of the inheritance before it was taken away.
"Damn it!" Duan Ling Tian cursed, an expression of fury could be seen on his face. He felt extremely regretful at this moment. At this moment, he felt as though he had given the Four Tribulation Bodiless Celestial who had mastered the Soul Congregation Embodiment technique an easy death. He should have tortured him! After all, it was all due to that Four Tribulation Bodiless Celestial that he arrived late and missed the chance to obtain the inheritance left by a Great Overarching Golden Celestial.
As though rubbing salt in Duan Ling Tian's wound, a Bodiless Celestial exclaimed loudly, "The Formations have disappeared! This means someone has obtained the inheritance from a Golden Overarching Golden Celestial!"
"Who obtained the inheritance so quickly?"
"I thought Duan Ling Tian would obtain the inheritance, who knew someone would beat him to it?"
"What a waste that he's too late."
As the Bodiless Celestials discussed among themselves, their eyes darted to Duan Ling Tian from time to time. Some of them even had a gleeful expression on their faces, taking pleasure in Duan Ling Tian's misfortune.
Upon hearing the conversation in the surroundings, Duan Ling Tian's expression darkened. If he did not arrive late, he did not think anyone would be capable of snatching the inheritance from a Great Overarching Golden Celestial from him.
Han Xue Nai called out softly, "Brother Ling Tian…" She understood how Duan Ling Tian must have felt at this moment.
"I am okay." Han Xue Nai's voice made him regain his sense. The furious expression disappeared from his face and was replaced with a smile. He said, "Well, it seems I'm too late. I guess this means I have no fate with the inheritance from a Great Overarching Golden Celestial…" He shrugged. Although it was difficult to accept this loss, with time, he knew he would be able to forget about this missed opportunity. There was no point dwelling on it.
Suddenly, someone shrouded in the fog cried out loudly, "Ancestor!"
A figure flew swiftly out of the fog and appeared before everyone's eyes in just a blink of an eye. The figure belonged to an ordinary-looking young man with a medium build. He arrived in front of one of the Bodiless Celestials and bowed respectfully.
"Are they the survivors?" A Bodiless Celestial speculated as he looked at the figures shrouded by the fog.
One of the Bodiless Celestials looked at the figures hopefully as he muttered to himself, "I wonder if any disciples from my Heavenly Origins Sect survived?"
Although the location of the inheritance from a Great Overarching Golden Celestial had many fortuitous encounters, it was also fraught with danger. Rumor had it that less than 30% of people who entered the place survived the last time the Beyond Heaven Secret Zone opened.
Currently, the Bodiless Celestials standing outside were looking to see if any of their sect disciples managed to survive. They did not even dream of their disciples obtaining the inheritance from a Great Overarching Golden Celestial, being able to survive was a feat on its own after all. Moreover, some of them knew the strength of their disciples well so they knew it was impossible for them to obtain the inheritance from a Great Overarching Golden Celestial.
Naturally, there were strong Bodiless Celestials from big sects who did not think that way.
"I hope that little guy managed to claim the inheritance from a Great Overarching Golden Celestial… After all, his strength is comparable to a Five Tribulation Bodiless Celestial!" An Eight Tribulation Bodiless Celestial muttered under his breath. He was from one of the top forces in Vast Cloud Realm. His sect's status was comparable to the Celestial Masters Sect, the Gao Village Sect, and the Mount Huaguo Sect in Yan Huang Realm.
There were a few Bodiless Celestials who shared the same thought as this Eight Tribulation Bodiless Celestial. A few of them only had average cultivation bases, but they were not the strongest people from their respective forces who had entered the Beyond Heaven Secret Zone. There was a chance those people from their forces had obtained the inheritance from a Great Overarching Golden Celestial as well.
However, there were also many people who were not present. After all, the Beyond Heaven Secret Zone was huge. News about the location of the inheritance from a Great Overarching Golden Celestial would not spread so quickly. For this reason, there were many people who were unaware that the location of the inheritance from a Great Overarching Golden Celestial had been found, let alone being aware that someone had already obtained the inheritance.
To begin with, the Bodiless Celestials who were present on the scene were nearby when they received news about the location of the inheritance from a Great Overarching Golden Celestial. Hence, they had rushed here immediately. Upon arrival, most of them used their communication jade slips to pass this news to their comrades. However, due to the uniqueness of the Beyond Heaven Secret Zone, the communication jade slips had a distance limit.
Similar to the others, Duan Ling Tian's attention was currently focused on the figures that were shrouded by the fog.
"Sister Ke'er!" Han Xue Nai cried out.
Duan Ling Tian felt his body tremble slightly when he heard Han Xue Nai's words. "Ke'er? How's it possible?" He did not expect Ke'er had entered the Beyond Heaven Secret Zone as well. At this moment, he could see four beautiful figures emerging from the fog, seemingly making their way to him. Gradually, their appearances became clearer and clearer. He saw Ke'er, her sister, Gan Ru Yan, Feng Tian Wu, and Mu Yi Yi. He exclaimed in shock, "Ke'er is truly here!"
When Duan Ling Tian saw Ke'er, his calm facade shattered immediately. Fear could be seen in the depths of his eyes. He knew how dangerous it was in the Beyond Heaven Secret Zone. Gan Ru Yan whose cultivation base was only at the Seventh Form of the Saint Celestial Stage was not strong enough to protect Ke'er.
Duan Ling Tian's body trembled in anger before he flew out like a cannonball toward the women. Contrary to everyone's expectations, he did not go to Ke'er. Instead, he stopped in front of Gan Ru Yan, completely disregarding the joyous expression on Ke'er face.
"Gan Ru Yan!" Duan Ling Tian glared at Gan Ru Yan as he said in a low voice, "How dare you bring Ke'er in here? If I knew you were going to bring her into the Beyond Heaven Secret Zone, I wouldn't have refined your Innate Spiritual Root! I don't care if you don't value your life, but leave Ke'er out of it!"
