Chapter 3924: Leaving the Imperial War Realm
“Thank you, Elder Zhen.”
Duan Ling Tian refused Zhen Ping Fan’s kind gesture because he truly needed the divine rocks. It would be best if he helped Linghu Ren Jie deal with the problem before joining the Pure Yang Sect so he would feel at peace. After all, Linghu Ren Jie was stripped of his position as clan leader because of him.
Although Duan Ling Tian could earn 100 million divine rocks by refining lord-grade Limit Divine Pills, it would create an uproar in the Eastern Ridge Mansion. After exposing his ability, there was a chance that he would be kidnapped by a powerhouse to refine pills. This was also why he had been very cautious whenever he refined lord-grade Limit Divine Pills in the Flying Dragon Sect. He would refine the lord-grade Limit Divine Pills during the intervals when he was refining king-grade Limit Divine Pills to avoid suspicion. Otherwise, the former Sect Leader of the Flying Dragon Sect, the top divine alchemist in the Eastern Ridge Mansion, would definitely discover his secret.
After claiming ownership over the spatial ring, Duan Ling Tian saw a mountainous pile of divine rocks. Apart from that, there also seemed to be at least a million divine crystals in there.
“When do you want to leave for the Linghu clan?” Zhen Ping Fan asked with a hint of anticipation in his eyes. He was clearly eager to watch a good show when Duan Ling Tian settled the debt with the Linghu clan.
“I can leave after bidding farewell to my friends. I’ll contact Elder Qin to inform you once I’m ready to depart,” Duan Ling Tian said.
“There’s no need to go through all that trouble,” Zhen Ping Fan said as he waved his hand and brought out a Soul Pearl. His expression turned serious as he continued to say, “Let’s exchange Soul Pearls. You can contact me directly once you’re ready to leave. After dealing with the matters in the Linghu clan, I hope you’ll return to the Pure Yang Sect with us. The Pure Yang Sect will be distributing excellent cultivation resources to the True Martial Disciples soon. However, the disciples will have to earn them so they’re not distributed equally. If we return in time, you might have a share of it.”
Based on Zhen Ping Fan’s words and expression, Duan Ling Tian knew the resources had to be very precious. He hurriedly said, “Don’t worry, Elder Zhen. I’ll be quick. We’ll leave the Flying Dragon Sect within two days.”
Zhen Ping Fan smiled. “Alright. We’ll have more time the sooner we leave. If there’s anything else, deal with them so you can join the Pure Yang Sect without any worries.”
Duan Ling Tian nodded.
While Zhen Ping Fan was talking to Duan Ling Tian, Deng Kui, the Silver Marionette Elder from the Marionette Villa, left reluctantly. Since Duan Ling Tian had decided to join the Pure Yang Sect, he knew he wasted his time coming to the Eastern Ridge Mansion.
The Sect Leader of the Tai Yi Sect and some of the sect members followed Deng Kui when he left. A hint of jealousy could be seen in their eyes when they looked at Duan Ling Tian.
After a while, Zhen Ping Fan and Qin Wu Fang returned to the Flying Dragon Sect’s estate after bidding farewell to Duan Ling Tian.
Before leaving with the duo, Long Qing Chong also congratulated Duan Ling Tian through Voice Transmission.
“Congratulations, Duan Ling Tian. I look forward to seeing you excel in the Pure Yang Sect. The Flying Dragon Sect will always have its door open for you. Please visit us if you have the time.”
“Thank you, sect leader.”
After Long Qing Chong left, various elders from the top emperor-rank forces in the Eastern Ridge Mansion came over to congratulate Duan Ling Tian as well.
“Congratulations, Duan Ling Tian!” an elder from the Pure Yang said. He was particularly happy that Duan Ling Tian decided to join the Pure Yang Sect.
Following that, the members of the Flying Dragon Sect stepped forward to congratulate Duan Ling Tian as well.
“Congratulations, Senior Brother Duan!”
“Congratulations, Duan Ling Tian!” ...
After wandering Peace City, he left the Imperial War Realm empty-handed.
‘It’s too bad they don’t have any more Destruction Divine Shuttle…’
Duan Ling Tian had obtained everything he needed previously. This time, he was specifically looking for Destruction Divine Shuttles in Peace City. After all, he wanted to return to the lower realms because he was worried about his master, Feng Qing Yang.
‘I hope master is safe… He should be able to escape from Mi Xuan since he had a fortuitous encounter and inherited the legacy of a supreme powerhouse…’ Duan Ling Tian thought to himself as he looked at Feng Qing Yang’s Soul Pearl in his spatial ring. The mark on the Soul Pearl was fading, and when it faded completely, the Soul Pearl would be useless. He would not be able to contact Feng Qing Yang nor would he know if something happened to Feng Qing Yang.
‘I have to try obtaining a few Destruction Divine Shuttles after I arrive at the Pure Yang Sect…’
Previously, Duan Ling Tian had asked Xue Hai Chuan if there were any Destruction Divine Shuttles in the Flying Dragon Sect. According to Xue Hai Chuan, Destruction Divine Shuttles were not uncommon in the sect, but there was a shortage lately due to the closed spatial passages between the Realms of Gods and Devata Realms.
After returning to the Flying Dragon Sect’s estate, Duan Ling Tian quickly sent a message to Xue Hai Chuan.
“Brother Hai Chuan, are you free?”
Xue Hai Chuan’s reply came swiftly.
“Little Tian, are you going to tell me about the Emperor of Gods from the Pure Yang Sect who personally came to recruit you?”
Duan Ling Tian replied, “No, it’s not regarding this matter. Are you in your cultivation ground? I’ll look for you now.”
“Alright, I’ll wait for you.”
On his way to Xue Hai Chuan’s cultivation ground, many disciples came over to congratulate him enthusiastically. After all, it was the first time an Emperor of Gods came to the Flying Dragon Sect just to recruit a disciple. Emperors of Gods were the strongest in the Eastern Ridge Mansion, after all. It was natural that the others were excited. It was an honor, after all. Even if the Flying Dragon Sect did not benefit from the visit, it would still benefit when Duan Ling Tian grew stronger and became one of the strongest powerhouses in the Eastern Ridge Mansion.
When it became too overwhelming, Duan Ling Tian quickly found a place and teleported to Xue Hai Chuan’s cultivation ground. When he arrived, Xue Hai Chuan was already waiting for him in the front courtyard.
“Brother Hai Chuan, you owe a huge favor this time,” Duan Ling Tian said with a smile.
Xue Hai Chuan was confused.
“Did you hear about Liu Yin’s death?” Duan Ling Tian asked.
Xue Hai Chuan nodded. “I heard he died a while ago…” Then, his eyes widened as realization dawned on him. “Are you saying….”
Before Xue Hai Chuan finished speaking, Duan Ling Tian brought out Liu Yin’s prominent divine artifact and placed it on the stone table.
