4281 Xia Jie Returns
To Xia Jie, not much time had passed since he met his niece’s husband. After all, to him, 800 years was not a very long time. A single session of closed-door cultivation could easily last for 800 years.
‘He was still in the mundane realm 800 years ago, but now, he’s a rudimentary Supreme God? How’s this possible?’
Although Xia Jie hoped the person everyone was talking about was his niece’s husband, he found the entire thing unbelievable. However, so many people were discussing this matter. It was not possible for so many people to lie to him. Moreover, no one knew him; why would they lie to him? These people were from six different Realms of Gods; how could so many people lie to him?
“What happened exactly?” Xia Jie was in a daze.
It took a while before Xia Jie finally returned to his senses and calmly thought about the matter. It was impossible for so many people to lie to him, and it was unlikely that some with the same name killed his niece’s husband. He remembered that his niece’s husband was a skilled swordsman. It was the reason he had given his niece’s husband the Seven Orifices Exquisite Sword back then. To confirm the truth of the matter, all he needed to do was meet the person everyone was talking about.
After calming down, Xia Jie thought to himself, ‘Let’s try to look for him. I’ll be able to confirm this matter once I meet him…’
Although Xia Jie still found it unbelievable that someone was able to achieve so much in 800 years, everything pointed to the fact that the person everyone was discussing was his niece’s husband.
In another part of the chaotic region, which was created by the intersection of the Divine Sanction Battlefield and another two Realm Battlefields.
Almost at the same time Xia Jie heard about Duan Ling Tian, another person also heard about Duan Ling Tian.
“It can’t be him, but… it’s too coincidental…”
When Linghu Ren Feng first heard about the monstrous prodigy named Duan Ling Tian, she only thought that the other party shared the same name as her son-in-law. At that time, she even thought that it would be great if her son-in-law was so strong. She firmly believed that only a powerful person could protect her poor daughter well.
In the past, if the man she loved was strong enough to save her and acknowledge her, she would not have to escape with her other daughter. To comfort herself and vent her anger, she had blamed him for being heartless.
“This prodigy is not only named Duan Ling Tian, but he’s also from the Profound Energy Land and came from the lower realm. Both of them are also younger than a thousand years old. Are they really the same person?”
Linghu Ren Feng, who was still in disbelief, turned to her daughter who was standing next to her and asked, “Chu Yin, what do you think? Do you think it’s him?”
“Mother,” Linghu Chu Yin replied, “Don’t forget about brother-in-law’s achievements in the Profound Energy Land. At that time, you were so shocked as well. Even at that time, he wasn’t ordinary. How could someone ordinary attain godhood so quickly after coming to the Profound Energy Land?”
Linghu Ren Feng seemed enlightened after listening to Linghu Chu Yin’s words.
Back then, if she did not see how outstanding Duan Ling Tian was in the Profound Energy Land, how could she have believed that he was her daughter’s husband after reincarnating in the lower realm? At that time, if she did not see it with her own eyes, she would not have believed that Duan Ling Tian who came from the mundane realm could achieve so much in the Profound Energy Land in just a few hundred years.
“It must be him! His innate talent and comprehension skills far surpass those of ordinary people,” Linghu Ren Feng said with a sigh, “However, I still didn’t expect him to become a rudimentary Supreme God so quickly. To think that he has grown stronger than me…”
Linghu Ren Feng naturally knew she was weaker than Duan Ling Tian. Not only was he a rudimentary Supreme God now, but he was also capable of killing most intermediate Supreme Gods.
“Mother, my brother-in-law must have come here for my sister,” Linghu Chu Yin said. This was very obvious to her.
Naturally, Linghu Ren Feng knew this as well. She looked at Ling Chu Yin and said with a sigh, “He’s here so I can rest assured. Yin’er, I’m sorry. In order to look for your sister, you had to follow me here and risk your life. Now, not only is your brother-in-law here, but he’s also very powerful. As long as Xue’er is still alive and on the Divine Sanction Battlefield, she’ll definitely hear about him and look for him. We won’t be as efficient as him in finding her. Let’s leave now. It won’t do us much good to stay here…”
Linghu Ren Feng brought Linghu Chu Yin here to look for Xia Ning Xue. During their time here, they had encountered all kinds of dangerous situations. Although she managed to escape every time, it did not lessen the fear in her heart. It did not matter to her if she died, but she could not let her daughter die. She felt torn about putting her daughter in danger to look for her other daughter, but she really had no choice.
Now that Duan Ling Tian was here and became stronger than her, Linghu Ren Feng felt relieved. The probability of him finding her daughter was much higher than hers. As such, there was no need for her to stay here anymore.
However, Linghu Chu Yin said, “Mother, why don’t we look for brother-in-law? We can look for sister together!”
Linghu Ren Feng shook her head and said, “There’s no need to look for him. We’ll only be a burden to him. Let’s leave.”
Then, without saying another word, Linghu Ren Feng took Linghu Chu Yin to the nearest base camp in the chaotic region and left for another base camp outside of the chaotic region on the Divine Sanction Battlefield. Then, they left the Divine Sanction Battlefield through a Transportation Formation.
At this time, Duan Ling Tian was still in closed-door cultivation. He was unaware that after becoming famous, a few people who knew him had also heard about him.
He was unaware that his mother-in-law had wisely brought his sister-in-law out of the chaotic region and the Realm Battlefield and that Xia Jie, Ke’er’s Third Uncle from her past life, was looking for him.
Since Duan Ling Tian was in closed-door cultivation, Xia Jie failed to find him despite searching the places where he was last seen. In the end, he could only give up on his search.
‘Wait, since that boy came to the Divine Sanction Battlefield, it means that he could be in the Divine Offering Land as well. Moreover, he doesn’t know that Xue’er isn’t in the Divine Offering Land…’
Xia Jie was sure that Duan Ling Tian’s family and friends were unaware that his niece had gone to the Realm Battlefield. As such, even if Duan Ling Tian reunited with them, he would not know that his niece had gone to the Realm Battlefield. As such, there was a possibility that Duan Ling Tian had gone to the Xia clan in the Divine Offering Land.
With this, he quickly came up with a plan.
“I’ll leave the chaotic region and the Realm Battlefield now and return to the Xia clan.”
Alas, unbeknownst to Xia Jie, Duan Ling Tian had long heard about Ke’er entering the Realm Battlefield. Instead of learning about this from his family and friends, he had learned about it from Linghu Ren Jie from the Profound Energy Land.
Linghu Ren Jie was Linghu Ren Feng’s brother, after all. It was only natural that Linghu Ren Feng told Linghu Ren Jie about it.
Although Duan Ling Tian heard that Ke’er had entered the Realm Battlefield, he also went to the Xia clan in the Divine Offering Land to check if Ke’er had returned from the Realm Battlefield. At the same time, he also wanted to go to the Yun clan’s estate.
Xia Jie did not waste time and went to the base camp on the Divine Sanction Battlefield, returning to the Divine Offering Land. As soon as he arrived in the Divine Offering Land, he hurried back to the Xia clan’s estate in the north.
After returning to the Xia clan, Xia Jie learned that someone came looking for his niece. The son of his subordinate had met the person at that time.
“He said his name is Duan Ling Tian, Xue’er’s husband? It’s really him! So it’s true! What a remarkable boy! How long has it been? Only 800 years have passed, but he has achieved so much after leaving the mundane realm!”
Xia Jie was naturally overjoyed after confirming that the monstrous prodigy he heard about on the Realm Battlefield was indeed his niece’s husband.
“As expected! How could the person my niece fell in love with be mediocre? Xue’er truly has good taste!”
After a moment, Xia Jie looked at his subordinates and asked, “Did the Eldest Young Miss return the clan?”
Upon hearing this, hesitant expressions appeared on the faces of Xia Jie’s subordinates.
Xia Jie’s expression changed slightly and asked, “Tell me! Did something happen to the Eldest Young Miss?”
Xia Jie was familiar with his subordinates. Based on their expressions, something bad must have happened to his niece.
At this time, a middle-aged man next to Xia Jie said with a wry smile, “Third Master, a while ago, I saw the clan leader bring the Eldest Young Miss back to the clan. However, not long after, the Clan Leader Yun arrived. After that, no one has seen the Eldest Young Miss in the clan again.”
