Jing Yuan's strength was only inferior to Hong Zhen, the leader of the Mountainshade Black Market's branch in the Windfall Nation, who was also a Devil Cultivator. If Jing Yuan managed to get his hands on the Devilseal Tablet, it would be impossible for Hong Zhen to fight him.
It was exactly because of this that Jing Yuan thirsted to get his hands on the Devilseal Tablet.
However, when one's hopes were high, the disappointment that came would be even bigger.
In the face of Jing Yuan, of course, the whole of King Qian's estate was powerless to fight back.
What a joke!
Jing Yuan was a mighty powerhouse on the Intermediate Refined Saint Stage. Even in the Windfall Nation's Imperial family, only one person was qualified enough to compare to him.
In front of such a powerhouse, under the leaders.h.i.+p of King Qian, the group of Saint Stage powerhouses in King Qian's estate was as docile as a group of cats. They did not even dare to breathe out loud.
"Senior, I've sworn by the thunder penalty oath and that Devilseal Tablet is really not with me! These few days, I've thought about it carefully and the Devilseal Tablet should still have some other special power that could let that Duan Ling Tian retrieve it back from a far distance." King Qian smiled mockingly at Jing Yuan.
"Duan Ling Tian?" Jing Yuan's expression hidden beneath the grimacing mask turned grave right away as cold brilliance shone from his eyes. "Do you know where he is now?"
"To be honest, Senior, we've been looking for him these few days too, but we can't get any trace at all. I suspect he must've left the capital that day itself. Right now in the entire Windfall Nation, many people are searching for him as well. After some time when the news has already spread out, I'm afraid there'll be even more people looking for him by then. By that time, I don't think there'll be any place for him to hide anymore even in the Windfall Nation," King Qian speculated, "There's a possibility that he might've even left."
Jing Yuan secretly agreed to King Qian's words.
Once the news about the Devilseal Tablet spread out, it would definitely attract more powerhouses to the Windfall Nation.
"According to you, Duan Ling Tian has obediently sent that Devilseal Tablet to your hand that day, didn't he? And with the relations.h.i.+p between you and him, it's impossible for him to be so nice, is that right?" Jing Yuan asked.
"Yes. I was also too thrilled with joy last time. If I had checked my Spatial Ring on the spot, Duan Ling Tian wouldn't have been able to leave so easily just like that. Come to think of it now, he must have purposely given that Devilseal Tablet to me with the intention to attract everybody's attention. And when he managed to s.h.i.+ft everybody's attention on me, he left quietly." The moment King Qian thought of this, he began to become even more certain. "Therefore, the Devilseal Tablet must be in his hand now! I'm very sure about it!"
A brilliance flashed across Jing Yuan's eyes as he kept quiet for some time without saying anything.
At once, King Qian and the group of Saint Stage powerhouses behind him were struck with panic as they were in fear that Jing Yuan would kill them directly if he was upset.
They had already learned about Jing Yuan's strength now.
When he had just arrived, in order to kiss King Qian's a.s.s, Situ Ming had shortly made his move on Jing Yuan. The outcome was inevitable. Situ Ming was killed instantly with just one move! From the beginning till the end, Jing Yuan did not even move an inch at all. He merely used the energy from his Territory skill to kill Situ Ming instantly.
The fact that he could kill an Intermediate Pristine Saint Stage Martial Cultivator with such precise technique meant that Jing Yuan was undoubtedly a Refined Saint Stage powerhouse!
The group of Saint Stage powerhouses in King Qian's estate could affirm this. It was because of this that they became obedient in front of Jing Yuan, not daring to cross the line at all.
Seeing Jing Yuan suddenly lift his hand, horror dawned on King Qian and the rest of them at once. They thought that Jing Yuan wanted to make his move on them.
"Senior, I…" When King Qian just wanted to open his mouth to ask for forgiveness, the scene that took place before him caused him to cease talking. He knew that he had misunderstood.
The man in black, who was wearing a grimacing mask, did not have the intention to make his move on them. He raised his hand merely to take out a rolled portrait.
"Look at this. Is this person in the portrait that Duan Ling Tian whom you've seen before?" As Jing Yuan asked, he rolled the portrait open.
This portrait had been copied from the portrait in the hand of the leader of the Mountainshade Black Market's branch in the Windfall Nation. It was a handsome young man who had an outstanding temperament with das.h.i.+ng brows and bright eyes. In just a sweeping glance, the portrait gave a pleasant and refres.h.i.+ng feeling.
After flattening the portrait, Jing Yuan looked at King Qian and asked nonchalantly, "Is that him?"
"It's him! That's right. It's him!" With a quick flash, King Qian quickly nodded his head. At the same time, he also took out a portrait and flattened it. "Senior, take a look at my portrait here."
After the portrait was flattened, a young man could be seen in it. He was at least 90% similar to the young man in the portrait in Jing Yuan's hand. Immediately, one could see that the young man in the two portraits was the same person.
"As expected! He's the person that our Mountainshade Black Market wants to find." When Jing Yuan saw the portrait in King Qian's hand, his breathing quickened as well.
After he managed to calm his breathing a little, he turned to look at King Qian again and asked indifferently, "Does Duan Ling Tian have any friends or relatives here in the Windfall Nation?"
"I only know that Duan Ling Tian is close to Situ Hang, the Great Young Master of the Situ Clan. On top of that, he has helped a group of people in the Situ Clan to settle down recently. They are currently staying in the Situ Clan." King Qian told him everything he knew. In the face of such a powerhouse like Jing Yuan, he did not dare to hide anything at all. Not only that, he dared not exaggerate as well. Who knew if he might offend the other party and make him unhappy?
Once the other party was unhappy, he did not know who to go to if that person wanted to kill him.
"Situ Clan?" Upon hearing the clues that King Qian provided, Jing Yuan's eyes lit up right away. In a flash, he disappeared from King Qian's estate and went to the Situ Clan once again.
Seeing the Refined Saint Stage powerhouse who was wearing the grimacing mask return again, Situ Hao's heart was anxious as he greeted respectfully, "Senior."
"I heard that your son Situ Hang is close to Duan Ling Tian. Plus, Duan Ling Tian has also brought a group of people to settle down in your Situ Clan?" asked Jing Yuan, casting a nonchalant gaze at Situ Hao.
In the face of the menacing Jing Yuan, even though Situ Hao did not want to let his son and Duan Ling Tian's friends face Jing Yuan, now that it had come to this, he had no other option.
If he made that man unhappy, the entire Situ Clan might be in danger.
Fortunately, as a Refined Saint Stage powerhouse, Jing Yuan did not make things difficult for Situ Hang, Bai Li Hong, and the rest.
After the few of them swore by the thunder penalty oath that they really had no idea where Duan Ling Tian went, Jing Yuan proceeded to leave. The thunder penalty oath was enough to prove that none of them was lying.
If Duan Ling Tian were there, he would definitely have sighed out in relief.
It was fortunate that he did not tell Bai Li Hong and the rest where he was heading to. Otherwise, they might be placed in a difficult situation because even if they chose to die, they would not betray him either.
When Jing Yuan was leaving the capital of the Windfall Nation, the news of a powerhouse, who seemed to be on the Refined Saint Stage had arrived at the King Qian's estate and forced King Qian to make a thunder penalty oath, had started to spread out.
Of course, most people had their attention trained on the content in the thunder penalty oath King Qian swore by.
"King Qian swore by the thunder penalty oath that he didn't get the Devilseal Tablet?" After many people learned about this news, they were astounded.
"What a joke! A few days ago, I personally witnessed Duan Ling Tian give that Devilseal Tablet to King Qian who kept that Devilseal Tablet in his Spatial Ring already. And now King Qian suddenly said he didn't get his hands on the Devilseal Tablet at all? Who'd believe him?" Some people could not help but curse out loud.
"So, how are you going to explain that thunder penalty oath then? If one has gone against the thunder penalty oath, n.o.body will be able to escape its judgment!"
"That's right! I think what King Qian said is true. Otherwise, he would've already been blasted to death now."
As time continued to pa.s.s by, the content that King Qian swore by the thunder penalty oath was verified. After some time, even those people, who originally refused to believe that King Qian did not obtain the Devilseal Tablet, had no choice but to accept this truth.
After accepting this truth, they could not help but think of Duan Ling Tian again.
"That day, Duan Ling Tian gave the Devilseal Tablet to King Qian who already kept it in his Spatial Ring. At the very least, in our eyes, King Qian has already kept the Devilseal Tablet in his Spatial Ring. From the beginning till the end, King Qian drew all of our attention, causing none of us to pay any attention to Duan Ling Tian at all. We didn't even know when he left!"
"Exactly! That is what happened. Come to think of it. All of this must be Duan Ling Tian's conspiracy! He must've used some technique to get that Devilseal Tablet back from afar. For this reason, he purposely created an illusion that King Qian has obtained the Devilseal Tablet to distract our attention so that he could seize the chance to escape."
"If that's really true, then Duan Ling Tian is really horrifying! He could still be so calm and come up with a solution in that kind of situation. In fact, had he missed a step in this method, he would've been doomed eternally!"
"Indeed! If King Qian checked his Spatial Ring and swore by the thunder penalty oath that time, saying that he didn't obtain the Devilseal Tablet, then everyone's attention would've switched back to Duan Ling Tian and he would've never been able to leave."
The entire capital of the Windfall Nation was filled with such discussions. There were even many people who admired Duan Ling Tian from the bottom of their hearts.
They knew that they would not necessarily be able to retreat safely if they were the ones in that kind of situation.
Yet, Duan Ling Tian had done so.
Of course, Duan Ling Tian had no idea all of these things that were taking place in the Windfall Nation's capital then. At that moment, he had already left the Windfall Nation and entered the Southern Ridge Yuan Mansion district.
Of course, even the Windfall Nation was considered as a part of the Southern Ridge Yuan Mansion district. Or to be more precise, the place that Duan Ling Tian entered now was the central district of the Southern Ridge Yuan Mansion district.
There was no sixth-rated Saint Nation here, only sixth-rated clans and sects.
Of course, the strongest one there was still the Southern Ridge Yuan Mansion.
Other than being the name of a district in the Dao Martial Saint Land, the Southern Ridge Yuan Mansion also represented a powerful fifth-rated force that ruled a land area.
Of course, to Duan Ling Tian, the Southern Ridge Yuan Mansion was merely a pa.s.sing area in his journey.
His destination was the Greenwave Han Mansion.
Just like the Southern Ridge Yuan Mansion, the Greenwave Han Mansion was also a powerful fifth-rated force in the Dao Martial Saint Land that ruled a land.
A figure flew past the sky. It was none other than Duan Ling Tian who spared no effort in traveling.
