4389 Duan Ling Tian’s Trails Are Exposed
Tian Hu and Ao Long Yu did not think they would lose to Duan Ling Tian if they joined forces with Sun Zhi Yao and Shangguan Jun. For this reason, they did not despair even though Sun Zhi Yao and Shangguan Jun were held back by Duan Ling Tian’s doppelganger. They thought that the duo would come to their rescue after destroying the doppelgangers.
The terrifyingly huge seven-colored sword ray that eclipsed the sun caused chills to run up the other prodigies’ spines as it shot out in the air. At the same time, they whispered among themselves.
“Duan Ling Tian is too terrifying!”
“With his strength, he’s definitely the strongest among us!”
“Ao Long Yu and Tian Hu were truly foolish to have offended him! Fortunately, I didn’t provoke him even though I dislike him. Otherwise, I’d be like them!”
“There’s no doubt that Sun Zhi Yao and Shangguan Jun won’t protect them anymore once the secret realm opens…”
Similar to Ao Long Yu and Tian Hu, the other prodigies assumed that Sun Zhi Yao and Shangguan Jun would join forces with Ao Long Yu and Tian Hu to fight Duan Ling Tian after the doppelgangers were destroyed.
Meanwhile, although Ao Long Yu and Tian Hu attacked with all their might, they were still suppressed by Duan Ling Tian. Although their attacks were quite powerful, they only managed to slow down the sword ray. In the end, the huge sword ray easily destroyed their attacks.
‘What are they doing?!’
At this moment, Ao Long Yu and Tian Hu began to panic when they saw that Sun Zhi Yao and Shangguan Jun were still restrained by the doppelgangers. They did not expect the doppelgangers to restrain the duo for so long. At the same time, they quickly exhausted their strength trying to defendthemselves against Duan Ling Tian’s fierce attack.
“Are you waiting for Sun Zhi Yao and Shangguan Jun?” Duan Ling Tian asked Ao Long Yu and Tian Hu through Voice Transmission before he said, “I just warned them not to destroy my doppelgangers. Otherwise, I won’t hold back if I run into them in the secret realm. I’m afraid it’ll only be in vain if you’re waiting for them to come to your rescue.”
Although Duan Ling Tian had spoken tonelessly, his voice was like the thunder in Ao Long Yu and Tian Hu’s ears. They finally realized that Duan Ling Tian had threatened Sun Zhi Yao and Shangguan Jun. Most importantly, based on the duo’s performance, it was clear that the threat was effective. In just a blink of an eye, they were overwhelmed by despair. After all, it was clear that the duo would not come to their rescue.
Following that, Duan Ling Tian easily crushed Ao Long Yu and Tian Hu’s defenses before he killed them.
In just a blink of an eye, two relatively strong advanced Supreme Gods ceased to exist, leaving only their weapons and spatial rings behind.
Silence reigned in the entire place as the prodigies watched the two advanced Supreme Gods die.
At the same time, Duan Ling Tian withdrew his two doppelgangers.
Shangguan Jun and Sun Zhi Yao looked at Duan Ling Tian at the same time. A hint of reluctance flashed in their eyes as they returned to their respective cultivation grounds. They felt like they had suffered humiliation today for failing to protect Ao Long Yu and Tian Hu. They also felt embarrassed because they knew it was obvious that they had held back when they were facing the doppelgangers.
Duan Ling Tian did not linger and returned to his cultivation ground as well. He had achieved his goal of killing Ao Long Yu and Tian Hu; he had no reason to stay any longer. He wanted to continue to cultivate so he could grow stronger and escape from the Crimson Demon.
After Duan Ling Tian left, the other prodigies sighed.
“Ao Long Yu and Tian Hu are really unfortunate.”
“I didn’t expect Shangguan Jun and Sun Zhi Yao to abandon them. How unreliable…”
“This just proves that they’re not trustworthy… We should be cautious of them and think twice even if we have to join forces with them in the secret realm…”
The Cyclic World.
The Sun clan in the Upper Tri-domains’ Luo Domain was acknowledged as the strongest force among the three major prime supreme-rank forces. Whenever the clan’s supreme powerhouse returned, the members of the clan would receive him with a grand celebration. This was not surprising since they worshiped him like an omnipotent deity. However, this time, the celebratory atmosphere was absent during the supreme powerhouse’s return. On the contrary, an ominous atmosphere loomed over the clan’s estate.
At this time, Sun Yi Qian, one of the clan’s most brilliant prodigies, and a middle-aged man were kneeling in the main hall. The middle-aged man was Sun Long. Sun Yi Qian wore an expression of disbelief on his face while Sun Long wore an expression of regret and helplessness.
“Tell us how both of you met him in detail.”
Sun Ping Yun, the Sun clan’s one and only supreme powerhouse and pillar of strength, sat in the main hall. He seldom returned to the Sun clan, and this time, he returned because of Duan Ling Tian. He discovered that it was likely that Duan Ling Tian, the terrifying prodigy from the God Defying World who escaped, was the same person as the intermediate Supreme God who came to the Sun clan a few decades ago.
As news of this matter spread, the supreme powerhouses from the Cyclic World began to show up at the Sun clan and demand liquid from the divine fountain from Sun Ping Yun. In their opinion, since Duan Ling Tian was able to escape to the Outer Boundary from the Sun clan’s estate, Duan Ling Tian must have given something to the Sun clan.
However, the truth was Sun Ping Yun knew nothing about this matter. Not only did he not gain anything from Duan Ling Tian, but he also did not know that Duan Ling Tian was the intermediate Supreme God who used the Sun clan’s Transportation Formation to go to the Outer Boundary. When he first caught wind of this matter, he had returned to the clan immediately to investigate the matter. He wanted to find out who had given Duan Ling Tian permission to use the Sun clan’s Transportation Formation to the Outer Boundary. It did not take long for him to find out that Sun Yi Qian was the key person and that Sun Long was present when the former met Duan Ling Tian.
