War Sovereign Soaring The Heavens Chapter 1850
Although Li Fei remained silent, she was staring intently at Duan Ru Feng. It was obvious she wanted to know what Duan Ru Feng’s answer to Li Rou’s question would be.
She had witnessed Di Jue’s strength previously. At that time, Di Jue had single-handedly destroyed Ling Tian Sect. Many people had died because of him on Half Moon Island! Up until now, fear still lingered in her heart when she recalled that incident.
“Rou’er, it’s Senior Prophet who arranged the five-years pact. So you don’t have to worry too much about this. Nothing’s going to happen to Tian’er,” Duan Ru Feng told Li Rou, “Moreover when the time comes, I’ll be by Tian’er’s side. I promise you if Tian’er is in danger, I’ll save him immediately!”
Duan Ru Feng had long prepared for this so he was quite adept at dealing with Li Rou.
Upon hearing his words, Li Rou’s heart jolted. Naturally, she knew the Old Prophet whom her husband just mentioned. He was famous in both the Upper and Lower Province of the Dao Martial Saint Land.
Li Rou began to slightly relax when she thought about the Old Prophet and her husband’s promise.
“You’re certain nothing’s going to happen to him?” Naturally, she was still worried even though she had relaxed a little.
“Don’t worry.” Duan Ru Feng nodded. At the same time, he looked at Li Fei. “Fei’er, don’t worry. Tian’er is my son. I won’t let anyone hurt him. The chance to enter the dragon clan’s Saint Land, the Dragon Cleansing Pool, is very important to Tian’er. He wants to fight for it as well!”
Li Fei had stayed in the Azure Cloud Mansion for a long time now and had learned about the Old Prophet from Li Rou.
When Duan Ru Feng mentioned the Old Prophet, her heart felt slightly more at ease just like Li Rou. She nodded her head when she heard Duan Ru Feng’s words.
She would support her man unconditionally since it was his decision.
It would be fine if he was unharmed. However, if something happened to him, she would not continue to live on her own. She would live or die together with him. This was Li Fei’s love for Duan Ling Tian. Like a moth that could not help but be attracted to the fire, she would charge into a fire for him. Although it seemed like a small act, it was an act that needed courage.
Naturally, Duan Ling Tian was unaware of what was going on. Currently, he was working hard in the Seven Treasures Exquisite Pagoda!
At the Mountainshade Black Market’s headquarter, Leader Dugu had also received the news about the five-year pact between Duan Ru Feng and the dragon clan. Apart from that, he also learned it would take place in a few months’ time.
“Didn’t Duan Ru Feng’s son disappear? Will he even show up for this five-year pact?” Dugu felt skeptical about this matter.
At that time, when news about Duan Ling Tian, Duan Ru Feng’s son, possessing the Devilseal Tablet spread out, he had ordered his subordinates to look for Duan Ling Tian with all their might. Although he managed to gather some clues, in the end, Duan Ling Tian still managed to escape.
Since that time, the Mountainshade Black Market had never stopped looking for Duan Ling Tian, but it was all in vain even after so many years. Moreover, Dugu had sent out many capable subordinates to be stationed around the vicinity of the Azure Cloud Mansion’s estate. Their mission was to stop Duan Ling Tian from returning to the Azure Cloud Mansion.
Unfortunately, several years had passed, but Duan Ling Tian still had not returned to the Azure Cloud Mansion. It was as though he had disappeared into thin air.
At the very least, in the eyes of the powerhouses from the Mountainshade Black Market, Duan Ling Tian had yet to the Azure Cloud Mansion.
They were unaware that Duan Ling Tian did not only return to the Azure Cloud Mansion, but he was even trying with all his might to get stronger in preparation to go to the dragon clan’s lair and fulfill the five-year pact in a few months’ time.
Let alone the subordinates from the Mountainshade Black Marker, it did not even occur to Leader Dugu of Mountainshade Black Market that Duan Ling Tian knew a secret disguising tactic that was undetectable by Divine Consciousness.
It was all thanks to this disguising tactic that Duan Ling Tian was able to return to the Azure Cloud Mansion safely undetected by the Mountainshade Black Market’s powerhouses. Otherwise, he would have been captured and brought to the Mountainshade Black Market long ago if they did not kill him.
Deputy Leader Feng Bu Yi of Mountainshade Black Market who was standing below on Dugu’s right said, “Lord Leader, why don’t we make a trip there and find out if Duan Ling Tian would appear?” His words were respectful. He did not dare to look down on his leader who was much younger than him.
Even if he wanted to look down on him, he did not possess such capability. Although his leader was a lot younger in comparison, his strength could not compare to him at all.
In his opinion, currently, in the Lower Province of the Dao Martial Saint Land, among those of the same age, only that Mansion Master from the Azure Cloud Mansion was a match for their Mountainshade Black Market’s Leader.
As for the other rising buds, only Ling Tian from the Mystical Sky Mansion could be mentioned in the same breath with their leader!
“You’re right. We should make a trip to the dragon clan’s lair and take a look.” Dugu nodded. He narrowed his eyes as he muttered to himself in his deep voice, “Duan Ru Feng, I hope your son will show up. I really want to see if someone as monstrously strong as you have a son who would surprise me! According to Di Jue from the dragon clan, your son hadn’t even entered the Pristine Saint Stage four years ago!” In the Dao Martial Saint Land, the Leader of the Mountainshade Black Market was a monstrous genius who would only appear once in a hundred years in the Lower Province. Dugu had always been alone and felt lonely in the Lower Province of the Dao Martial Saint Land.
It was only when the Azure Cloud Mansion rose up and Duan Ru Feng appeared that his life began to have colors again.
Although Duan Ru Feng was his rival, he and Duan Ru Feng respected each other as well. At the very least, this was the case on his part.
Due to this reason, when he found out Duan Ru Feng’s son was actually Duan Ling Tian who was widely known in the Lower Province to possess the Devilseal Tablet, he did not spread this news.
Although he knew Duan Ru Feng and the Azure Cloud Mansion would be hit by calamities if news of it spread out, he did not do so.
The Devilseal Tablet was more than enough to attract the attention of powerhouses from the Upper and Lower Province!
Dugu preferred to rely on his own strength and the Mountainshade Black Market’s strength to defeat Duan Ru Feng or the Azure Cloud Mansion. He felt it was beneath him to use such a method to deal with Duan Ru Feng.
‘Dugu in the South, Ru Feng in the North, dominating the entire Lower Province… Duan Ru Feng, you and I will have to fight eventually to see who’s the superior one! I hope that day will come soon, but at the same time, I don’t wish for it to come. Won’t I be lonely again if I defeat you and destroy the Azure Cloud Mansion?’ Dugu thought to himself, ‘Duan Ru Feng, I hope you’ll put up a good fight and don’t let me surpass you too quickly! At the very least, don’t let me surpass you before I leave the Lower Province for the Upper Province. I won’t be able to get used to your absence.”
In the Lower Province of the Dao Martial Saint Land.
At the old address of the Seven Absolutes Sect.
A cold gust of wind blew past as an old man hovered in the air with his hands clasped behind him. He looked at the ruins below his feet and muttered to himself, “At that time, who would’ve thought the Seven Absolutes Sect that dominated for such a long time would fall to such a state.”
If Duan Ru Feng was here, he would be able to recognize with just a glance that the old man was none other than the secretive and mysterious Old Prophet!
The Seven Absolutes Sect was separated into seven absolutes!
The Old Prophet was the present successor of the second absolute, the Prophet Progeny. He was currently the Acting Sect Leader for the Seven Absolutes Sect. He was also someone the three great sects in the Upper Province wished to kill even in their dreams!
Due to Sword Saint Feng Qing Yang, the Seven Absolutes Sect had once taken the entire Dao Martial Saint Land by storm for an era.
During that era, the Dao Martial Saint Land had yet to be split into two. There were no Upper Province nor Lower Province.
If somebody asked just how powerful the Seven Absolutes Sect was at that time, the answer would be the Seven Absolutes Sect was so powerful that even the three great forces were forced to join forces for the first time ever. Even then, they were only able to withstand and survive the attack of the Seven Absolutes Sect.
Otherwise, the three great sects would not have existed in the Dao Martial Saint Land now!
During that era, if somebody asked which sect was at the top, everyone would shout that it was the Seven Absolutes Sect!
During that era, if somebody asked who the strongest person was, everyone would point to Sword Saint Feng Qing Yang!
During that era, the Seven Absolutes Sect was synonymous to Sword Saint Feng Qing Yang’s name. Sword Saint Feng Qing Yang did not need the Seven Absolutes Sect at all.
With just one sword, he traveled the Dao Martial Saint Land alone and was known for being invincible.
During that era, the three great sects on the Dao Martial Saint Land in the past had to huddle together just to survive.
That era belonged to Sword Saint Feng Qing Yang and the Seven Absolutes Sect!
It was only until Sword Saint Feng Qing Yang had transcended and entered the Devata Realm that the era finally came to an end!
Bloodshed was destined to follow when an era ended.
The three great sects that had always suppressed in the past, huddling together and enduring hardship in order to survive, retaliated in full fury the moment they had a chance to do so.
Although the Seven Absolutes Sect that was caught unprepared was filled with talented people, it was still difficult for it to endure the full fury of the three great sects. After it had held its position for three months, it was finally annihilated.
Fortunately, despite the Seven Absolutes Sect’s annihilation, the legacy did not die at all. Instead of finding a disciple to teach, the legacy of the Seven Absolutes Sect placed importance on fate.
Each of the Absolutes’ members had the habit of leaving behind their legacies in different parts of the Dao Martial Saint Land, waiting for the one who was fated to encounter it.
Due to this reason, the foundation of the Seven Absolutes Sect was not annihilated.
Naturally, the three great sects panicked when they learned about this. They mobilized all their forces to search every part of the Dao Martial Saint Land for the legacies left behind by the Seven Absolutes Sect’s members.
They were worried that someone like Sword Saint Feng Qing Yang would appear in the Seven Absolutes Sect again in the future. For this reason, they had to do everything that they could to destroy the foundation of the Seven Absolutes Sect.
The Seven Absolutes Sect was their mortal enemy!
It was only until the Dao Martial Saint Land was split in two, the three great sects moved to the Upper Province. Only then did they stop searching for the legacies left behind by members from the Seven Absolutes Sect in the Lower Province.
However, whenever they encountered anyone whom they suspected to be a member of the Seven Absolutes Sect in the Upper Province, they would kill without mercy.
Take the Old Prophet, the current successor for the Seven Absolutes Sect’s Second Absolute, the Prophet Progeny, for example, he was someone who was blacklisted by the three great sects in the Upper Province of the Dao Martial Saint Land.
Whenever there was news of his sightings, the three great sects would immediately send powerhouses out to try and kill him!
“The Dragon Cleansing Pool will be where the Dragonization of the successor of our Seven Absolutes Sect’s First Absolute, the Fog Rain Progeny, takes place… Once the Fog Rain’s successor goes through the Dragonization, he would be unstoppable! How I look forward to it…” The Old Prophet vanished into thin air, only the echoes of his words were left behind.
