Chapter 2453 Shamelessly Boasting?
Duan Ling Tian was, naturally, unaware of the matter regarding Little Gold, Little Black, and Little White. How could he have known they had been taken away? Let alone knowing they had been taken to a Devata Realm, he did not even know they had entered the Beyond Heaven Secret Zone to find him.
At this moment, three people who looked travel-weary arrived in a majestic mountain range.
“We’re too late!” One of them said as they watched an old man, surrounded by people, held a long and wide saber with an intimidating aura in his hand.
Buzz! Buzz! Buzz! Buzz! Buzz!
When the old man sent his energy into the saber, the saber began to vibrate and radiate fierce saber rays. It seemed indestructible at this moment.
When the old man saw this, he let out an unrestrained laugh. “What a good saber!”
‘Seven Tribulation Bodiless Celestial?’ Duan Ling Tian thought to himself as he looked at the old when he and his companions arrived in this earth-rank treasure vault.
The saber in the old man’s hand was the Celestial Supreme Treasure contained in this earth-rank treasure vault.
When the old man arrived, he saw two Six Tribulation Bodiless Celestials fighting over this Celestial Supreme Treasure. He did not wait for them to kill each other before he directly killed the two Six Tribulation Bodiless Celestials and took possession of the Celestial Supreme Treasure.
Once the onlookers saw the old man was a Seven Tribulation Bodiless Celestial, they no longer dared to have covetous thoughts about the Celestial Supreme Treasure. They had no intention of seeking death after all. Snatching the Celestial Supreme Treasure from that Seven Tribulation Bodiless Celestial was no different from snatching food from the mouth of a tiger!
“It would be nice if that old man didn’t have the saber. Otherwise, the saber would be yours, Brother Ling Tian,” Han Xue Nai who was standing next to Duan Ling Tian said with a sigh as she looked at the old man who was laughing while he held the saber in his hand.
In Han Xue Nai’s opinion, the old man who was a Seven Tribulation Bodiless Celestial was definitely no match for Duan Ling Tian if he did not obtain the Celestial Supreme Treasure. After all, she had witnessed him killing a Seven Tribulation Bodiless Celestial so she knew his strength was comparable to an Eight Tribulation Bodiless Celestial. However, since the old man had obtained the Celestial Supreme Treasure, this meant the old man’s strength is comparable to an Eight Tribulation Bodiless Celestial. The old man’s power was on par with Duan Ling Tian so she thought it would be difficult for Duan Ling Tian to snatch the Celestial Supreme Treasure away from the old man.
Meanwhile, Zhang Yi, who was standing at the other side of Duan Ling Tian, remained silent. However, judging by the regretful expression on his face, it was not hard to see that he shared the same thought as Han Xue Nai.
When Han Xue Nai had spoken, many people had heard her even though her voice was not loud.
“Who’s shamelessly boasting?”
“This woman just said that if that Seven Tribulation Bodiless Celestial didn’t possess the Celestial Supreme Treasure, the man standing next to her would be able to obtain it…”
At this moment, many people were looking at Han Xue Nai and Duan Ling Tian. They knew she was talking about Duan Ling Tian earlier.
“After that Seven Tribulation Bodiless Celestial obtained the Celestial Supreme Treasure, his strength is comparable to an Eight Tribulation Bodiless Celestial…”
“So what that woman means is the purple-clad young man standing next to her has strength comparable to an Eight Tribulation Bodiless Celestial?”
“Well, maybe he’s an Eight Tribulation Bodiless Celestial…”
More and more people turned to look at Duan Ling Tian curiously. They wondered if he was really an Eight Tribulation Bodiless Celestial. Even then, none of them dared to probe his cultivation base. It was considered rude to probe someone’s cultivation base. If they had probed the purple-clad young man’s cultivation, it would be fine if he was weak. However, if he turned out to be strong, they would definitely lose their lives.
“Eight Tribulation Bodiless Celestial?” When the old man who had obtained the Celestial Supreme Treasure heard the discussion in his surroundings, he turned to look at Duan Ling Tian as well. As soon as he saw Duan Ling Tian, he cried out in anger, “It’s you!” It was as though Duan Ling Tian was his sworn enemy!
A majestic energy surged out of the old man’s body immediately. Some of that energy went into the saber he held in his hands, causing the saber to release fierce and seemingly indestructible saber rays.
Everyone, including Duan Ling Tian, was, naturally, alerted by the old man’s movements.
“It seems like this Seven Tribulation Bodiless Celestial knows the purple-clad young man. Moreover, it seems like he has a grudge against that young man…”
Han Xue Nai who could see how angry the old man was could not help but ask in shock, “Brother Ling Tian, you know him?”
Although Zhang Yi remained silent, he looked at Duan Ling Tian curiously as well.
“I haven’t seen him before.” Duan Ling Tian shook his head. He was certain he had not met this old man before, how could he know why the old man was so angry? He wondered inwardly, ‘Is he related to someone I killed?’ He thought there was a high possibility of this. After all, he had killed many people ever since he entered the Beyond Heaven Secret Zone. He did not doubt that many of those people carried Mirror Image Talismans on their bodies.
Duan Ling Tian could clearly feel the Divine Consciousness that probed his cultivation base, it made him feel exposed.
Sure enough, the old man glared at Duan Ling Tian and said with a scoff, “Similar to Rong Bo who was a disciple of my Li Yan Sect, you’re just an Eminent Celestial. However, seeing as you managed to kill him, you must be quite strong. However, it’s unfortunate for you to have met me today!”
The onlookers were confused when they heard the old man’s words since they had no idea what he was talking about.
“He’s from the Li Yan Sect in Skyline Realm?” Some from Skyline Realm exclaimed.
At this moment, Zhang Yi’s eyes widened in surprise when he heard the old man’s words. “Rong Bo!” He finally realized why the old man was so angry when he saw Duan Ling Tian. ‘As it turns out, he’s from the same sect as Rong Bo. No wonder he’s so hostile toward Duan Ling Tian. He must have seen Duan Ling Tian easily killing Rong Bo through a Mirror Image Talisman!’
Realization dawned on Han Xue Nai as well. “Oh! So he’s from the same sect as Rong Bo!” She had heard about the incident with Rong Bo during their travels.
Duan Ling Tian was not surprised since he had already guessed the old man was related to someone whom he had killed. However, he truly did not expect the old man to be connected to Rong Bo.
At this moment, the onlookers were furtively whispering among themselves.
“An Eminent Celestial? Did the Seven Tribulation Bodiless Celestial just say the purple-clad young man is an Eminent Celestial?”
“We must have heard wrongly. If the purple-clad young were just an Eminent Celestial, I don’t think the young lady by his side would dare to shamelessly boast, right?”
“Well, she could be lying…”
When Han Xue Nai overheard the onlookers’ conversation, her face turned red from anger. She fumed inwardly, ‘Boasting? Shamelessly boasting? How dare these people look down on Brother Ling Tian?’ She took a deep breath before she retorted, “My Brother Ling Tian just killed a Seven Tribulation Bodiless Celestial with just a strike not too long ago! Although he’s only an Eminent Celestial, his strength is comparable to an Eight Tribulation Bodiless Celestial!”
The onlookers seemed to recall something when they heard Han Xue Nai’s words and broke out in a discussion among themselves again.
“An Eminent Celestial killed a Seven Tribulation Bodiless Celestial with a strike? His strength is comparable to an Eight Tribulation Bodiless Celestial?”
“She calls him… Could this purple-clad young man be Duan Ling Tian?” Someone suddenly exclaimed.
