War Sovereign Soaring The Heavens Chapter 1851
Time continued to pass by. Soon after, there were only a few days left before the day of the five-year pact arrived.
A few seemingly travel-weary figures made their journey to dragon clan’s lair. It was three young men and an old man. They were none other than the group of people from the Azure Cloud Mansion led by Mansion Master Duan Ru Feng. Apart from Duan Ru Feng, Ku Mi, the Revered Guardian of Azure Cloud Mansion was also there, along with Duan Ling Tian and Gu Li.
When Gu Li saw the dragon clan’s lair was just right in front of them, he looked at Duan Ling Tian and asked solemnly, “Junior Brother Ling Tian, you really feel confident? The battle between you and that Five-clawed Golden Dragon isn’t a joke! You might lose your life over a small mistake!”
“Senior Brother Gu Li,” Duan Ling Tian said with a helpless expression on his face, “You seemed to have asked me the same question more than ten times throughout our journey, right? Don’t worry! No matter what, I already have a solution. Even if I can’t win him, I’m confident I can retreat in time to save my life. With my father here, don’t tell me you’re still worried something will happen to me?”
Gu Li turned around and glanced at Duan Ru Feng. He only felt at ease after Duan Ru Feng nodded at him.
A few days ago, Duan Ling Tian had left the Seven Treasures Exquisite Pagoda and came out of closed-door cultivation! After he came out, he accompanied his mother, his fiancee, and son for a few days before following his father to the dragon clan’s lair.
They only had one purpose coming to the dragon clan’s lair. It was to fulfill the five-year pact!
The five-year pact was a gamble Duan Ru Feng made with Di Shan, the Clan Leader of the dragon clan, five years ago.
Now that five years had gone by, his son, Duan Ling Tian, would fight Di Jue, the dragon clan’s Five-clawed Golden Dragon. Whoever won would be given the chance to enter the dragon clan’s Saint land, the Dragon Cleansing Pool.
Five years ago, Duan Ru Feng had taken one of the keys to the Dragon Cleansing Pool from Di Shan so he was not worried the dragon clan would go back on their words and open the Dragon Cleansing Pool before their arrival.
The Dragon Cleansing Pool could only be opened when the two keys were together!
Soon after, under Duan Ru Feng’s guidance, the group of people arrived at the forest where the dragon clan’s lair was located. They charged into it without decreasing their speed.
Swoosh! Swoosh! Swoosh!
At the same time, a few figures shot out of the dragon clan’s lair. They were the dragon clan’s members who were in charge of patrolling the area.
“I’m Duan Ru Feng from the Azure Cloud Mansion. I brought my son here to fulfill the five-year pact!” Before the few dragon clan’s members could speak, Duan Ru Feng’s voice sounded thunderously through the dragon clan’s lair. It took the few dragon clan’s members by surprise as a look of horror and panic appeared in their eyes.
Duan Ru Feng?
Was this not the name of the Mansion Master of Azure Cloud Mansion?
“Please follow us, Mansion Master Duan.” The few members from the dragon clan took a deep breath and welcomed them respectfully when they heard these group of people led by Duan Ru Feng was from the Azure Cloud Mansion, and they had come to fulfill the five-year pact.
The Mansion Master of the Azure Cloud Mansion had some disputes with their dragon clan’s high-ranking officials five years ago, and their dragon clan’s high-ranking officials had compromised with him and gave his son a chance to compete for the chance to enter the Dragon Cleansing Pool.
Faced with Duan Ru Feng, even the dragon clan’s high-ranking officials had to obediently compromise with him, let alone people like them!
If they angered Duan Ru Feng, the dragon clan might not even stand up for them if he killed them. They did not doubt this at all.
“Dragon clan?” Duan Ling Tian raised an eyebrow and glanced at the few dragon clan’s members as he quietly activated his Divine Eye.
The Divine Eye was a secret tactic that Elder Huo had taught him. Not only was it able to probe someone’s cultivation base, but it could also find out the true nature of a beast that had taken human form. In other words, it had some of the same functions as Sun Wu Kong’s Fiery Golden Eyes! However, all in all, they were still far from being comparable to Sun Wu Kong’s Fiery Golden Eyes!
After activating his Divine Eye, very faint images began to appear on the members of the dragon clan.
“Three-clawed Divine Dragon!” Duan Ling Tian clearly saw their true forms. They were all Three-clawed Divine Dragons that had a slightly lower position in the dragon clan.
Under the guidance of the dragon clan’s members, when Duan Ling Tian and the group of people entered the dragon clan’s lair, a voice resonated from afar. “Good day, Mansion Master Duan, Elder Ku.”
The voice was accompanied by an old man who was dressed in green.
“Elder Qing Yan!” The few members from the dragon clan who were leading the way bowed respectfully when the green-clad old man appeared. At the same time, they moved to stand behind him.
“Young Mansion Master, he’s a Five-clawed Green Dragon who was at the peak of the Divine Saint Stage five years ago. His strength was similar to Di Jue at that time. However, now that five years have passed, he’s probably no longer a match for Di Jue.” An ancient voice sounded in Duan Ling Tian’s ear in a timely manner.
The person who transmitted his voice to him was none other than Elder Ku Mi!
When he was in the Azure Cloud Mansion, Duan Ling Tian met Ku Mi and learned who he was through Duan Ru Feng. Now that he thought about it, it was not his first time meeting Elder Ku in the Azure Cloud Mansion.
Previously, when he was still in the Mystical Sky Mansion, he had seen Elder Ku when he first came out of the Saint Martial Secret Zone.
After that, he finally learned the reason Elder Ku went to to the Mystical Sky Mansion was to verify his identity. Unfortunately, due to the disguising tactic that could not be seen through with Divine Consciousness, Elder Ku was also deceived by him.
Although Elder Ku seemed to perpetually have a long face and was taciturn, he was always smiling in front of his Young Mansion Master. It had to be said that his smile looked uglier than if he had cried.
“Five-clawed Green Dragon? Qing Yan?” Duan Ling Tian nodded. He did not expect to instantly encounter a Five-clawed Green Dragon as soon as he entered the dragon clan’s lair.
Due to his curiosity, he activated his Divine Eye to try and see Qing Yan’s true form.
“Hurmph!” However, before his Divine Consciousness could even get near Qing Yan, he had already been discovered. As Qing Yan snorted coldly, a vast Divine Consciousness swept out and shattered Duan Ling Tian’s extended Divine Consciousness.
Horror dawned on Duan Ling Tian’s face immediately. He became dizzy after he suffered from having his extended Divine Consciousness shattered. He could not help but throw up a mouthful of blood as his face turned pale.
Swish! Swish! Swish!
At this moment, Duan Ru Feng, Ku Mi, and Gu Li’s expressions turned grave in unison.
Without seeing any movements from Ku Mi, a loud noise sounded as he disappeared from his spot. The Five-clawed Green Dragon, Elder Qing Yan, who was originally standing was sent flying in the next instant like an arrow that was shot out.
Qing Yan who was sent flying, threw up mouthfuls of blood in the sky. It made it seem as though dark red roses were blooming in the sky.
In just a blink of an eye, Ku Mi had already reappeared next to Duan Ru Feng. It seemed as though he had teleported from one place to another. He spoke in an icy voice that sent shivers up the spines of people who heard it, “It’s an honor being probed by our Young Mansion Master! If you act so foolishly again, you’ll definitely die!”
The few dragon clan’s members who stood not far away were so shocked that they began to tremble.
Let alone them, even their dragon clan’s Five-clawed Green Dragon Elder was easily sent flying!
At this moment, they fervently prayed that the other party would not vent their anger on them.
“Ah, so it’s your Young Mansion Master… I didn’t know your identity earlier so I had acted a little rudely. Please forgive me, Young Mansion Master!” When Qing Yan returned with his injured body, not only was he not angry, but he even looked at Duan Ling Tian and apologized. His words were filled with sincerity.
Upon seeing this, the corner of Duan Ling Tian’s mouth could not help but twitch for a moment. In the end, he finally nodded when faced with Qing Yan’s anticipatory gaze.
When Duan Ling Tian saw Qing Yan sighed in relief as though a heavy burden had been lifted off his shoulders, a sense of guilt rose in his heart.
The conflict earlier had been caused by him probing Qing Yan with his Divine Eye so he could be considered as the one at fault.
He was still at fault even if someone shattered his Divine Consciousness since he had probed him without permission.
Although he felt he was at fault, Ku Mi had already made his move. Not only did he injure Qing Yan, but he even made Qing Yan obediently apologize to him.
What kind of logic was this?!
“Junior Brother Ling Tian, haven’t you gotten used to it by now after we’ve come so far? This is a world where the strong ones are revered. It’s because Uncle Duan and Elder Ku are here today… If they aren’t here, and it’s just the both of us, even if you didn’t die, you’d be skinned alive!” Gu Li transmitted his voice to Duan Ling Tian as though he could read his mind.
“Look at this dragon clan’s elder properly. He’s suppressing the killing intent in the depths of his eyes…” Gu Li continued to transmit his voice through Voice Transmission.
Upon hearing that, Duan Ling Tian looked at Qing Yan again. True enough, upon closer inspection, he saw hints of humiliation and wrath in the depths of his eyes. Not only that, but there was a hint of killing intent as well.
“It’s said that Five-clawed Divine Dragons are all proud beings. I’ve learned something new today. This Five-clawed Divine Dragon’s tolerance must be extremely high to endure such humiliation,” Duan Ling Tian replied through Voice Transmission.
“Five-clawed Divine Dragon?!” When Gu Li heard his Voice Transmission, his tone was filled with confusion as he replied through Voice Transmission again, “J-Junior Brother Ling Tian, you said this dragon clan’s elder is a Five-clawed Divine Dragon?”
“Yes,” Duan Ling Tian replied through Voice Transmission, “Elder Ku told me earlier. His name seems to be Qing Yan, and he’s a Five-clawed Green Dra…”
“Five-clawed Green Dragon!” Gu Li interrupted him before Duan Ling Tian could finish speaking. Shock could be heard in his voice. “I’ve heard of him before. He seems to be at the peak of the Divine Saint Stage! Due to the reason his true form is a Five-clawed Green Dragon, his strength is top-tier too among powerhouses at the peak of the Divine Saint Stage in the entire Lower Province! Even Zhu Lu Qi, the former Palace Master of Heaven Palace in the Mystical Sky Mansion, is far from being comparable to the dragon clan’s Five-clawed Green Dragon, Elder Qing Yan, despite being known as the strongest person below the Exemplary Saint Stage in the Mystical Sky Mansion!” When Gu Li reached this part of the sentence, he sighed emotionally. “Today, I’ve finally witnessed how amazing the Azure Cloud Mansion is… This Five-clawed Green Dragon, Elder Qing Yan, doesn’t even dare to fart in front of Uncle Duan and Elder Ku even though he had suffered such great humiliation and injustice! Not only that, but he even took the initiative to apologize to you!”
