Chapter 2591 Murong Bing
The woman said nothing in response to Duan Ling Tian’s suggestion, but it was obvious she had given her tacit agreement.
As they prepared to tackle the obstacles according to the instructions in the jade token, Duan Ling Tian asked, “I’m Duan Ling Tian, how may I address you?”
Seeing that the woman beside him was only following him silently without any intention to respond to his question, he could not help but frown and said rather unhappily, “I don’t have any other intention, I can’t keep referring to you as ‘you’ all the time, right?”
Finally, the woman replied in a melodious yet cold voice, “Murong Bing.”
‘Murong Bing? She’s indeed cold*,’ Duan Ling Tian thought to himself as he glanced at Murong Bing indifferently.
Soon after, they began to take on the obstacles in the Little World. These obstacles aimed to kill, but indirectly. The obstacles would try to separate both man and woman, which would result in their deaths. Once they were 1,000 meters apart, they would trigger the Yin and Yang Reversal Formation and a Killing Formation!
Although the two met various obstacles along the way, with the instructions from the jade token, they were able to overcome all of them. Although there were some obstacles that were difficult for Duan Ling Tian to handle, Murong Bing was able to handle it.
‘This woman is truly strong!’ Duan Ling Tian thought to himself as he witnessed her strength. He was far inferior to her at this moment. If she wished, she could kill Duan Ling Tian with just a single strike.
At this moment, Duan Ling Tian discovered he and Murong Bing had been transported to another place again after successfully passing another obstacle.
‘We should have arrived at our destination,’ Duan Ling Tian thought to himself as he surveyed the place. They had arrived at a splendid golden hall of a temple with dazzlingly golden Buddha statues around the hall. Each golden statue of the Buddha had a statue of a graceful woman figure attached to it. These women statues were all in different postures, some of the postures were too embarrassing to describe. However, he had grown numb to it since he had since many statues like that during their journey.
On the other hand, Murong Bing did not even spare the statues a glance. Instead, her attention was focused on a stone platform that stood in the middle of the hall. A bald monk could be seen sitting cross-legged on the platform. He looked moderately good looking and was wearing a red and gold kasaya. Like a statue, he sat with his eyes closed.
Duan Ling Tian could clearly sense there was no life in the monk. It was clear he had died for a long time now. “It’s lifeless.” He was not surprised the body had not decay since the bodies of Celestials were different from an ordinary man. Provided the body was not destroyed, it could last for millions of years.
“Binayaga!” Murong Bing said in a cold voice.
“Binayaga? Is that his name? Do you know him?” Duan Ling Tian was surprised.
“He was the powerhouse from Blissful Sect who created this Little World. It looks like the rumor is true. At that time, he was severely injured, and he had chosen the Little World as his resting place,” Murong Bing said as she flew towards the monk. She took his Spatial Ring from his finger and dripped her blood on it to claim ownership of the ring.
A Horsetail Whisk appeared in her hand.
‘A Celestial Weapon! Moreover, it doesn’t seem like an ordinary Celestial Weapon!’ Duan Ling Tian could sense the Celestial Weapon was not common. When he extended his Divine Consciousness to probe it, he discovered it was about the same level as the Jasper Celestial Sword and the Universe Ruler.
“World Cleansing Horsetail Whisk!” Murong Bing exclaimed as she studied the horsetail whisk in her hand. The permanently icy expression on her face seemed to have thawed at this moment. A smile could be seen blooming on her face.
Duan Ling Tian who was looking at her could not help but fall into a daze when he saw her smile that was vaguely hidden by the veil. Her smile seemed able to light up cities!
Murong Bing seemed to be aware of Duan Ling Tian’s gaze and quickly assumed her usual indifferent expression. However, upon closer inspection, one could see the excitement in her eyes. After all, the World Cleansing Horsetail Whisk was one of the three Guarding Sect Celestial Weapons of the Compassion Celestial Traveller Sect!
Duan Ling Tian who was aware of the change in Murong Bing said as he looked at her, “This Celestial Weapon is not ordinary.”
Usually, Murong Bing would have ignored him. However, due to her good mood, she replied, “This is the World Cleansing Horsetail Whisk. It’s a Guarding Sect Celestial Weapon from my that was lost for over a million years. Of course, it’s not ordinary.”
Duan Ling Tian looked at Murong Bing as he said, “The Guarding Sect Celestial Weapon of your sect?” Then, he shifted his gaze to the lifeless monk and added, “So your Guarding Sect Celestial Weapon had been lost for over a million years because it was taken by this powerhouse from the Blissful Sect?” He recalled the two passersby he met in Blood Specter City had said the Little World had been around for a million years.
Murong Bing looked at Duan Ling Tian coldly, she did not deign to answer his question.
However, based on her expression, Duan Ling Tian knew the answer to the question. He knew his words were like pouring salt on her sect’s wound.
“Wasn’t he a Supreme Celestial King? Why would he die here?” Duan Ling Tian asked curiously. Although he did not know any Celestial Kings, he knew they were extraordinarily strong and hard to kill.
Similar to earlier, Murong Bing did not answer Duan Ling Tian’s question. She surveyed the hall before a frown appeared on her face as though she had discovered a problem.
Meanwhile, Duan Ling Tian extended out his Divine Consciousness and discovered Murong Bing had extended her Divine Consciousness as well and was sweeping it across the hall. It seemed like she was getting annoyed.
“It seems like she can’t find an alternative way to leave.’ It was not difficult for Duan Ling Tian to figure this out. His expression darkened when he recalled the last message in the jade token. ‘We still have two and a half months left before the Yin and Yang Reversal Formation and Killing Formation activate!’ He continued to use his Divine Consciousness to look for a way out, but it was in vain.
Apart from the lifeless Binayaga, the powerhouse from the Blissful Sect, and bunch of Buddha and women statues, Duan Ling Tian and Murong Bing were the only living beings.
Duan Ling Tian who had become impatient walked to Binayaga’s corpse as he complained, “This guy has died, and yet, he’s still causing trouble!”
“Hum!” A cold snort suddenly rang in the air.
A gust of wind blew toward Binayaga, the powerhouse from the Blissful Sect.
A loud explosion sounded as Binayaga’s corpse suddenly exploded.
“Oh, no!” Duan Ling Tian cried out as he stood next to Binayaga’s body. He said to Murong Bing, “Quick, retreat!” However, he was too late.
The moment Binayaga exploded.
Swoosh! Swoosh! Swoosh! Swoosh! Swoosh!
Streaks of strange green lights shot into Murong Bing’s body before she could even react.
