Chapter 2588 ‘Little World’
When Duan Ling Tian heard the conversation between the two passersby, his eyes brightened. ‘Black Dragon Army? Captain?’ He was racking his brains earlier for an opportunity to enter the City Governor’s estate or the Black Dragon Army’s camp. It seemed like an opportunity had presented itself.
According to the young waiter of the restaurant, it was not difficult to join the Black Dragon Army, it was easy for newly-ascended Celestials to join them. The newly-ascended Celestials would have to start at the bottom with little time to cultivate. Once they had reached a certain level, they would officially serve as a member of the army. After that, they would be required to complete missions, and they would have more time to cultivate. However, the Black Dragon Army did not recruit external people.
Duan Ling Tian turned around and caught up with the two passersby. He stopped them and asked curiously, “Excuse me! May I know what’s the ‘Little World’ that both of you mentioned?”
“Who are you? Why are you blocking our way?”
“You’re so rude!”
The two passersby were annoyed after being stopped by a stranger.
Duan Ling Tian ignored their obvious displeasure. Instead, he took out two Mediocre Celestial Stones and said “I’m sorry, but I’d like to ask a few questions. I’ll give both of you a Mediocre Celestial Stone each for answering my questions.”
The moment Duan Ling Tian took out the Mediocre Celestial Stones, their eyes brightened immediately. They instantly took the Mediocre Celestial Stones from Duan Ling Tian in a manner similar to robbing. Even their attitudes took a 180-degree turn.
“Brother, you may ask anything you want.”
“We promise to tell you everything we know!”
The two passersby looked at Duan Ling Tian with smiles on their faces. It was a complete change from earlier.
Duan Ling Tian sighed inwardly. It seemed like no matter where it was, money always made the world go round. He bluntly asked, “Just like I asked earlier, what’s the ‘Little World’ that you mentioned earlier?”
One of them immediately replied, “The Little World is an independent space that’s forcibly opened by someone whose strength has reached a certain level in the Devata Realm.” Then, he asked curiously, “Brother, you haven’t heard about the Little World?”
Duan Ling Tian had no intention of answering the passerby’s question. He thought to himself, ‘The Little World sounds like the pseudo realm in the mundane realms. However, due to how stable the Devata Realm is, common Celestials definitely wouldn’t be capable of forcibly opening a space.’ After that, he asked, “What kind of powerhouse is capable of such a feat?”
That passerby had, after all, received Duan Ling Tian’s Celestial Stone. Therefore, he was not angry at Duan Ling Tian for not replying to his question. He instantly answered Duan Ling Tian’s question, “I’m not so sure. However, I heard even Great Overarching Golden Celestials are not capable of opening a Little World in the Devata Realms.”
“It’s not only Great Overarching Golden Celestials. Rumor has it that even those who are stronger than Great Overarching Golden Celestials might not necessarily be able to open up a Little World,” the other passerby chimed in.
Duan Ling Tian nodded. Then, he changed the topic. “Did you say that a Captain of the Black Dragon Army is suspected of accidentally entering a Little World located at the mountain ridge south of Bloody Specter City? Moreover, Bloody Specter City has classified that Little World as a forbidden area since a long time ago?”
One of the passersby nodded. “Yes. That Little World has a history over 10,000 years long. Over the years, many have entered but none managed to come out. As time passed, that Little World grew famous. Many powerhouses in and out of the Nine Specters County came to Bloody Specter City to enter the Little World. However, none of them returned. Many of them were Great Overarching Golden Celestials, and it’s said that there were also those who were stronger than Great Overarching Golden Celestials. Regardless, none of them returned. For this reason, the Little World is classified as a forbidden area in Bloody Specter City.” Shock appeared on one of the passersby’s faces as he said, “Brother, don’t tell me you plan to enter that Little World? Please consider it carefully. You may not be able to return after entering that place!”
The other passerby added, “Yes. And the space near the valley where the Little World is located is unstable too. In our Bloody Specter City’s history, there were about 10 people who were just passing by but were forcibly sent to the Little Word due to the unstable space and spatial turbulence. All of them had vanished without a trace. This included the Captain of the Black Dragon Army. It’s suspected that he was forcibly sent to the Little World due to the spatial turbulence while he was passing by. We don’t know if those who had disappeared are still alive, but there’s no doubt the Captain of the Black Dragon Army had died. After all, the Black Dragon Army possessed the captain’s Soul Pearl. Since the Black Dragon Army has announced the death of the captain, it means that his Soul Pearl has shattered.”
The two passersby patiently explained and answered Duan Ling Tian’s questions.
After Duan Ling Tian obtained the answer he wanted, he said before he left, “Thank you.”
“Do take care, brother,” the two passersby saw Duan Ling off with smiles on their faces.
Duan Ling Tian continued wandering along the streets of Bloody Specter City, but he kept thinking how he could enter the Little World located at the mountain ridge south of Bloody Specter City. ‘That Little World has been around for 10,000 years but none managed to come out. This proves it’s an extremely perilous place. It seems like it’s not realistic for me to look for the captain’s token near or in the Little World.”
Although Duan Ling Tian knew about ‘high-risk, and high-return’, he was well aware of his current strength. For 10,000 years, so many powerhouses who were stronger than him did not even come out. He did not think he would be able to come out.
‘However, I think I should take a look at the place. Who knows the captain’s token is somewhere outside instead of being in the Little World?’ In the end, Duan Ling Tian decided to go to the place where the Little World was located to try his luck even though he had no intention of entering the Little World.
Meanwhile, there was someone at the mountain ridge south of Bloody Specter City.
It was the purple-clad woman with a veil covering the lower half of her face whom Duan Ling Tian had met on the street of Bloody Specter City.
“It’s here,” the woman murmured as soon as she arrived at the mountain ridge.
She immediately flew toward a direction once she entered the mountain ridge. She stopped a distance away from a valley, as though afraid to get too close. There was nothing special about the valley. However, upon closer inspection, one would see the space in the valley was constantly distorting. This proved that the space was very unstable!
“The Little World left behind by the powerhouse from Blissful Sect is there,” the woman muttered as she looked at the valley. Meanwhile, she held a glowing jade token as she lifted her beautiful hand.
‘If the instruction of the ancestor from the Blissful Sect is really here, I’ll be able to complete the message in this jade token after infusing my energy into it. According to the instruction of the ancestor of Blissful Sect, one would be able to obtain something in the Little World as long as one follows the message in the jade token. At that time, the powerhouse from the Blissful Sect who opened up this Little World snatched away one of our Compassion Celestial Traveler Sect’s Three Guarding Celestial Weapons. Since they’re not in the Blissful Sect, he might have hidden it in the Little World.’ Upon thinking about this, she no longer hesitated as she sent her Celestial Origin Energy into the jade token in her hand.
In just an instant, a burst of light surged from the jade token. “The message is now completed.” The woman immediately read the message before she even had time to feel delighted. However, her expression changed drastically as she continued to read the message. The message read, ‘A man and a woman must enter together and have sex inside before they’re able to come out alive!’
