War Sovereign Soaring The Heavens Chapter 1853
The Devilseal Tablet was one of the ten great Super Saint Weapons on the Ten Great Saint Weapon Ranking that even the Upper Province powerhouses would covet, let alone someone like Di Jue!
However, Di Jue also knew if he wanted to kill Duan Ling Tian, he could not do it during the five-year pact battle just as Elder Qing Yan had said.
It was not a joke if Mansion Master Duan Ru Feng was enraged!
At that time, let alone him or the entire dragon clan, even the Clan Leader might not be able to endure Duan Ru Feng’s rage.
Dugu in the North, Ru Feng in the South, dominating the entire Lower Province.
In the Lower Province of the Dao Martial Saint Land, not taking the Watchers sent by the Upper Province’s first-rate forces, the strongest people were none other than Leader Dugu of Mountainshade Black Market and Mansion Master Duan Ru Feng of Azure Cloud Mansion.
It was due to these two people that the Mountainshade Black Market and Azure Cloud Mansion had an extraordinary status today.
If Duan Ru Feng led the Azure Cloud Mansion to kill the dragon clan at all cost, the dragon clan would definitely be annihilated!
“Duan Ling Tian…” Di Jue’s eyes flashed brightly. “I’ll find a chance to kill you and snatch the Devilseal Tablet from you. If I can get my hands on the Devilseal Tablet, even a Devil Cultivator who’s a stage higher than me wouldn’t be a match for me. This includes the Mountainshade Black Market’s Leader Dugu and Azure Cloud Mansion’s Mansion Master Duan Ru Feng!”
Both Leader Dugu of Mountainshade Black Market and Mansion Master Duan Ru Feng of Azure Cloud Mansion were Devil Cultivators.
If Di Jue managed to obtain the Devilseal Tablet, he could even kill a Quintessential Saint Stage Devil Cultivator, let alone Dugu and Duan Ru Feng who were at the peak of the Exemplary Saint Stage.
Qing Yan stood by the side. Although he also coveted the Devilseal Tablet, he knew very well he did not have the capability to keep it in his possession. Due to this reason, he decided not to think about it and dismissed his thoughts.
Meanwhile, Duan Ling Tian who was staying in one of the wooden houses in the little valley was still unaware that Di Jue had already come out of closed-door cultivation. Not only that, but he had also set his sights on the Devilseal Tablet. Naturally, he would not care even if he knew about it.
He knew his identity would be revealed the moment he decided to fulfill the five-year pact as Duan Ling Tian, son of Mansion Master Duan Ru Feng from the Azure Cloud Mansion. At some point, everyone would find out that Duan Ling Tian who possessed the Devilseal Tablet was actually the son of Duan Ru Feng of Azure Cloud Mansion.
“After the five-year pact is over, and I come out from the Dragon Cleansing Pool, I’ll head to the Upper Province. I can no longer stay in the Lower Province!” This was also a way for Duan Ling Tian to solve the problem.
He would leave the Dragon Cleansing Pool and return to the Azure Cloud Mansion and immediately bid farewell to his mother and his fiancee before heading to the Upper Province to search for his other fiancée, Ke’er. This was because he knew that he would only bring calamity to the Azure Cloud Mansion if he continued to stay there!
This was not something he was willing to see. Due to this reason, he decided to leave as soon as he could.
Sitting cross-legged on the wooden bed in the wooden house, Duan Ling Tian’s eyes gleamed coldly as he muttered to himself, “I’ll be able to see Di Jue in three days’ time. Di Jue, you annihilated my Ling Tian Sect and killed my Ling Tian Sect’s Vice Sect Leaders, elders, and disciples. It’s time for me to avenge them! This debt of blood will be repaid with blood!”
Then, he began to shut his eyes to attain mental composure. He did not enter the Seven Treasures Exquisite Pagoda. He only stayed in the wooden house to wait for the day the five-year pact would arrive.
After the group of people from the Azure Cloud Mansion settled in, three more travel-weary figures appeared outside the dragon clan’s lair.
The person in the lead was dressed in a black robe as his long hair fluttered even though there was no wind like poisonous snakes. It was as though they would attack at any given time.
Two old men followed behind him.
“Who are you? How dare you trespass into our dragon clan’s lair?!” A few figures flew out from the dragon clan’s lair and stopped the three travel-weary figures.
“I’m Dugu from the Mountainshade Black Market.” The black-clad young man merely looked at the few dragon clan’s members who blocked their path indifferently, but it was enough to send chills running up their spines. It was as though they were being targeted by snakes.
When they heard the black-clad young man’s words, they regained their senses as horror dawned on them.
Was that not the Leader of the Mountainshade Black Market?!
At once, the few dragon clan’s members gasped before they welcomed Dugu and the other two respectfully. “Leader Dugu, two Seniors, this way please!” One of the dragon clan’s members entered the dragon clan’s lair first.
After Dugu and the other two entered the dragon clan’s lair, a purple-clad old woman appeared in front of them. “Leader Dugu.”
The moment she appeared, she looked at Dugu and bowed respectfully
Faced with the old woman, Dugu merely nodded as a greeting. He was not interested in talking to her.
“Tsk tsk… Elder Zhi Jing, it has been such a long time since I last saw you.” A short and fat old man, one of the two old men standing behind Dugu, clicked his tongue and chuckled as he took the initiative to greet Zhi Jing.
“Fatty Zhong, I can’t believe you’re still alive.” The old woman was the Five-clawed Divine Dragon, Elder Zhi Jing. She was a Five-clawed Purple Dragon. She had only noticed the short fatty after hearing his voice. She greeted him with a slight frown.
There was a hint of dread in the depths of Zhi Jing’s eyes against the short fatty.
This short fatty was known as Zhong Qi Shan. He was one of the Deputy Leaders of the Mountainshade Black Market, and he was a lot more powerful than her.
Soon after, her gaze shifted to the other old man behind Dugu and greeted him, “Deputy Leader Feng is here as well.”
This old man was none other than Feng Bu Yi, the Deputy Leader of Mountainshade Black Market!
“Elder Zhi Jing, I’m sure you can guess the reason why we’re here. When will the five-year pact take place?” Zhong Qi Shan asked without beating around the bush.
“The five-year pact is set to happen in three days’ time,” Zhi Jing replied.
“Has Mansion Master Duan Ru Feng from Azure Cloud Mansion arrive yet?” Zhong Qi Shan asked again.
“He arrived this morning,” Zhi Jing replied.
Feng Bu Yi could not help but ask, “How about his son?”
“He’s here as well,” Zhi Jing replied.
Upon hearing her words, Feng Bu Yi and Zhong Qi Shan stood gazing at each other. They could see the shock in each other’s eyes. Mansion Master Duan Ru Feng had actually shown up with his son?
“How did Duan Ru Feng find his son?”
“The people our Mountainshade Black Market sent out are stationed near the Crouching Dragon Lake where the Azure Cloud Mansion’s estate is located. It’s impossible for them not to inform us if Duan Ru Feng’s son has appeared!”
“What’s actually going on?”
Feng Bu Yi and Zhong Qi Shan transmitted their voices to each other. Their voices were filled with confusion and disbelief.
However, it did not cross their minds, even in their wildest dreams, that Duan Ru Feng and his son could reunite without alerting their Mountainshade Black Market’s powerhouses was due to Duan Ling Tian’s amazing disguise tactic.
When he used the Disguising Secret Tactic, nobody could sense a trace of disguise no matter how powerful their Divine Consciousness was.
Naturally, they did not know Duan Ling Tian had returned to the Azure Cloud Mansion because he was in disguise.
When Duan Ling Tian left the Azure Cloud Mansion’s estate a few days ago, he was not in disguise. The Mountainshade Black Market’s powerhouses lurking in the dark had also noticed him immediately, however, they did not dare to make a move since Mansion Master Duan Ru Feng of Azure Cloud Mansion was next to him.
They only dared to reveal themselves and return to the Mountainshade Black Market’s headquarters to report this after Duan Ru Feng and the others had gone far away.
However, when they returned, Leader Dugu had already brought two men with him, leaving the headquarters of Mountainshade Black Market. Similar to Duan Ru Feng and the others, they were headed to the dragon clan’s lair.
Unlike Duan Ru Feng and the others who came to the dragon clan to fulfill their five-year pact, they only came to watch the show and join in the fun.
Due to this reason, Dugu and the other two missed the people who returned to report this matter. That was why they did not know Duan Ru Feng’s son had appeared.
It was also why they were so shocked.
“Interesting.” Unlike Feng Bu Yi and Zhong Qi Shan who lost their composure, Dugu, the Leader of Mountainshade Black Market, merely smiled indifferently, seemingly lost in his own thoughts when he heard Zhi Jing’s words.
As expected from the Leader of Mountainshade Black Market. When it came to remaining calm at all times, even Feng Bu Yi and Zhong Qi Shan who were much older than him were no match for him!
The reason Zhi Jing showed herself was, naturally, to welcome the group of people from the Mountainshade Black Market.
It was a mystery whether the dragon clan did it on purpose or not, but Zhi Jing actually brought the three men and Leader Dugu to the little valley where Qing Yan had arranged for the group of people from the Azure Cloud Mansion to stay in.
There were about ten wooden houses in the little valley. Four of them had been occupied by the people from the Azure Cloud Mansion. Moreover, their locations were strategic as well.
The remaining ones were slightly further away.
“Leader Dugu, Vice Deputy Leaders, I’ll see all of you again in three days.” After bidding farewell to Dugu and the other two, Zhi Jing hurriedly left.
As she turned around, a sneer appeared on her face. “When two dogs fight with each other, they’ll only end up with a mouthful of fur!”
Based on her words, it was clear she knew the people from the Azure Cloud Mansion was staying here. Moreover, it seemed as though she wished for the people from the Azure Cloud Mansion and the Mountainshade Black Market to fight.
“Are there other people here?” After Zhi Jing left, Dugu and the other two instantly discovered the four most strategically placed wooden houses were already occupied.
Zhong Qi Shan’s expression turned grave as he walked to the most strategically placed wooden house.
The wooden house was located close to a waterfall in the little valley where there were a lot of vegetations. The air was fresh as well. It was a pleasant place to stay in.
Zhong Qi Shan stood in front of the wooden house and shouted as his eyes gleamed murderously, “Get your ass out here!”
The powerful energy contained in his voice caused the door of the wooden house to tremble for a moment before it traveled inside the house.
“How noisy!” As soon as Zhong Qi Shan’s words left his mouth, a glum voice resonated from inside the house.
What followed next was the sound of the wooden house’s door quickly being opened before it was closed again.
Naturally, the sound of the latter was very faint.
“Go away!” The instant the glum voice sounded, another solemn voice sounded as well, shocking Zhong Qi Shan as horror dawned on him.
