Chapter 2899: One More Month
Translator: EndlessFantasy Translation Editor: EndlessFantasy Translation
“Senior uncle, if Duan Ling Tian really has an extraordinary background, do you think that elder from the Compa.s.sionate Celestial Traveler Sect who tried to kill him would still be alive? Would Duan Ling Tian and his clansmen let things slide?” Liu Xuan Kong, the Sect Leader of the Blissful Sect, said bitterly as he looked at Li Ping, the other Old Ancestor of the Blissful Sect, “Based on the results of our investigation, all signs indicated that Duan Ling Tian isn’t from any powerful clan. After we’ve confirmed this, we decided to get rid of him. Master insister on personally killing Duan Ling Tian. He brought Ji Fan with him to the Wasteland.” As soon as he finished speaking, his expression changed drastically as though he was just reminded of something. He raised his hand and a Soul Pearl appeared out of thin air.
“Ji Fan is still alive!” Liu Xuan Kong exclaimed as he looked at the Soul Pearl in his palm.
Upon hearing Liu Xuan Kong’s words, the high-ranking officials discussed among themselves in confusion.
“That’s the Arhat’s Soul Pearl?”
“The Arhat’s Soul Pearl is intact. This means he’s still alive… However, isn’t it strange that Old Ancestor Li An is dead, but the Arhat is still alive?”
“What happened? Old Ancestor Li An is clearly very strong, and the Arhat is extremely weak in comparison. How is it that the Arhat is alive while the mighty Old Ancestor Li An is dead?”
Meanwhile, Li Ping looked at the Soul Pearl nestled in Liu Xuan Kong’s palm intently with narrowed eyes as he asked in a deep voice, “Fan’er’s still alive? Kong’er, are you sure this is Fan’er’s Soul Pearl?”
Ji Fan was not only the Blissful Sect’s future sect leader, but he was also Li An’s beloved grand disciple. As the saying went, ‘Love the house, and love its crows’. Naturally, Li Ping doted on Ji Fan as well. Now that he discovered Ji Fan was alive, he could not help but feel something was amiss.
“Senior uncle, Ji Fan’s my last disciple. There’s no doubt this is his Soul Pearl. Even if it’s not, the Soul Pearls in my hands are all intact. At least one of them belongs to Ji Fan. This means there’s no doubt he’s alive,” Liu Xuan Kong replied.
Li Ping nodded before he grimly said, “I think this matter must be related to Duan Ling Tian as well… Although we have confirmed that Duan Ling Tian’s a transcender with an ordinary background, we can’t be 100% certain. There’s a small chance we’ve overlooked something.”
“Senior uncle, what should we do? Master is dead… Should we send someone to the Wasteland to investigate the matter?” Liu Xuan Kong asked.
“Not at this moment.” Li Ping shook his head as his eyes flashed.n”Since Fan’er’s still alive, he’ll definitely send us a message through a Communication Celestial Talisman. What we must do now is wait for his Communication Celestial Talisman!” Li Ping solemnly said.
“Senior uncle, you mentioned earlier that master has been dead for a while now… If Ji Fan really sent a Communication Celestial Talisman, we should’ve received it by now. Is it possible that it was intercepted?” Liu Xuan Kong asked tentatively.
“It’s possible. Only a couple of people in the Six Southern Regions and the borderlands are able to threaten Brother An. He might have been killed by a quasi Celestial King or even a Celestial King. Otherwise, it’s impossible for someone whose cultivation base is lower than that of a Celestial King to kill Brother An,” Li Ping replied.
“Is it possible that the quasi Celestial Kings from the Tai Yi Celestial Sect came out from seclusion and killed master because master tried to annihilate the sect?” Liu Xuan Kong asked with a grim expression.
“Impossible!” Li Ping shook his head and vehemently said, “It’s impossible that Brother An would even think about annihilating the Tai Yi Celestial Sect… After all, he clearly knows the Tai Yi Celestial Sect is protected by their quasi Celestial Kings. There’s no doubt he would only kill Duan Ling Tian and leave the Tai Yi Celestial Sect alone.” He had spent so many years with Li An so he knew Li An very well. He knew Li An would never jeopardize the sect by provoking the quasi Celestial Kings from the Tai Yi Celestial Sect. In fact, Li An was even more cautious than Li Ping. Since he would not even consider doing such a thing, how could Li An do something like that?
Upon hearing Li Ping’s words, Liu Xuan Long was reminded that, indeed, it was not in Li An’s character to do such a thing. It seemed like he was too anxious that he had blurted the earlier words without giving it much thought.
“It seems like there’s only one possibility,” Li Ping said grimly, “A powerhouse capable of intercepting a Communication Celestial Talisman had killed Brother An… Therefore, Fan’er didn’t bother with sending a Communication Celestial Talisman since it’s futile. In any case, sooner or later Fan’er will return. All we can do now is wait. So long as Fan’er is alive, he’s bound to return to the sect. At that time, we’ll be able to learn about what happened from him.” Although Li Ping was utterly devastated by Li An’s death, he still remained level-headed, and his judgment was sound. After all, as the oldest member of the Blissful Sect, his experience was more than enough for him to maintain his composure when faced with such a situation.
Liu Xuan Kong and the high-ranking officials of the Blissful Sect agreed that Li Ping’s words were logical. Even if they thought otherwise, no one would dare to blatantly voice out their opinion. After all, Li Ping was not only one of their Old Ancestors, he was also the Blissful Sect’s top powerhouse; a formidable Ten Directions Celestial Duke!
In the end, the Blissful Sect could only wait for Ji Fan’s Communication Celestial Talisman or his return for now. It did not take long before peace was restored in the sect. Little did they know, it was only the calm before the storm.
In just a blink of an eye, a few months had pa.s.sed. The distance between the Cross Region and the Wasteland was far longer compared to the distance between the Wasteland and the Barren Land. Under Tie Tai He’s lead, after a long and arduous journey, they finally arrived in the Cross Region.
About a month after they arrived in the Cross region…
Duan Ling Tian was sitting cross-legged as a bright golden light suddenly shot out from his body, and a loud noise rang in the air.
Tie Tai He and Ji Fan instinctively turned to look. They saw the golden light surrounding Duan Ling Tian like a halo before it morphed into the silhouette of a Buddha. The golden Buddha was the size of a hill, and it was like a hologram with realistic features as it shrouded Duan Ling Tian.
“H-he managed to completely master the Immobilization King Method in such a short amount of time?” Ji Fan whispered in disbelief, gulping. As the Arhat of the Blissful Sect, he had comprehended the Immobilization King Method since he was young so he had already mastered it. Hence, he could tell Duan Ling Tian had completely mastered the Blissful Sect’s Duke Grade Celestial Method, the Immobilization King Method!
‘Master Duan has mastered the Blissful Sect’s Celestial Method?’ Tie Tai He thought to himself as he raised an eyebrow. Although Ji Fan had spoken softly, his words did not escape Tie Tai He’s keen ears. However, he was only slightly surprised that Duan Ling Tian had successfully mastered the Celestial Method. After all, Duan Ling Tian had mastered the Duke Grade Divine Ability he gained from the Profound Heaven Celestial Sect, the Eastern Purple Qi, before they even left the Tai Yi Celestial Sect for the Cross Region. His expression turned slightly gloomy as he thought to himself with a wry smile, ‘Now that Master Duan has mastered the Eastern Purple Qi and the Immobilization King Method, it’s likely that he’ll leave once we return to the sect…’ He felt conflicted. He was happy that Duan Ling Tian had finally mastered the Celestial Method and Divine Ability, but he was sad because it meant Duan Ling Tian would be leaving soon.
After the silhouette of the golden Buddha disappeared, Duan Ling Tian slowly opened his eyes before he asked, “Elder Tie, where are we now?”
“Master Duan, we’re in the Cross Region… According to the Arhat, we’ll arrive at the Blissful Sect’s estate within a month with our current speed,” Tie Tai He replied.
“One more month.” Duan Ling Tian nodded slightly.
