War Sovereign Soaring The Heavens Chapter 1614
“They won’t come?” When Feng Wu Dao and the others heard Duan Ling Tian’s words, they were stunned. They did not know why he would say such words. However, when they saw his confident expression, they could not help but trust him.
Although they had thousands of questions in their hearts, they did not eagerly ask him questions. Instead, they followed him to leave the place.
The remaining slaves finally regained their sense when they saw Duan Ling Tian leading Feng Wu Dao and the others away.
“He’s the Interim Advisor, Master Duan, from Situ Clan?” One of the slaves muttered, confused.
Earlier, he was standing near Duan Ling Tian and the group of people so he could roughly hear the exchange between Duan Ling Tian, Feng Wu Dao, and the others.
“It seems like it isn’t a baseless rumor. Master Duan, the Interim Advisor of Situ Clan, does possess the strength of a Heaven Ranking’s powerhouse,” another slave chimed in.
“Hurmph! Master Duan’s not just a Heaven Ranking’s powerhouse. The Heaven Ranking’s powerhouses are separated into different categories. Master Duan’s ranked 23rd in the Heaven Ranking.”
“If Duan Ling Tian continues to progress, his ranking wouldn’t be limited to the 23rd place. Lady Feng from Drift Blaze Sect who’s defeated by Master Duan is widely acknowledged as a powerhouse with the strength to enter the top ten of the Heaven Ranking!”
“That’s right! Duan Ling Tian must be strong enough to enter the top ten of the Heaven Ranking as well!”
The slaves discussed among each other. During their discussion, Duan Ling Tian’s name was included in every sentence.
“I can’t believe those slaves have such a relationship with Master Duan… It’s obvious Master Duan had broken into the Dark Nether Sect today because of them! How enviable! It would be nice if I have a relationship like that with Master Duan!”
“That’s enough! Stop daydreaming! How’s it possible for someone as great as Master Duan to be friends with you?!”
“Master Duan has already rescued them and left. There are no Dark Nether Sect’s people around! Let’s go! If we continue to stay here, we’ll only die eventually.”
After speaking for a while, the group of slaves came to a decision. One by one, they rose up into the sky and escaped.
They quickly discovered there were no obstacles at all as they escaped. Even when they encountered the Dark Nether Sect’s disciples, they saw the disciples were fleeing as well. In fact, the expressions of the disciples as they fled were even more anxious than the group of slaves.
“What’s going on?” The group of slaves was completely baffled.
They did not know that a Dark Nether Sect’s disciple had instantly gone to the eastern side of the Dark Nether Sect’s estate to report to the Sect Leader of Dark Nether Sect when Duan Ling Tian had killed the Vice Sect Leader and grand elder of the sect. However, he quickly discovered the Sect Leader was gone. Moreover, he also discovered the corpse of the Supreme Elder of the sect.
After the Dark Nether Sect’s disciple told the remaining people of the things he had seen, whether it was the high-ranking officials or ordinary disciples of the sect, all of them had chosen to flee.
“The Supreme Elder is dead, and the Sect Leader is gone. Won’t we be killed if we continue to stay here?” Now that leaders of Dark Nether Sect fell from power, their followers, naturally, decided to abandon ship.
Duan Ling Tian was, naturally, unaware of this. At this moment, he was bringing Feng Wu Dao and the others to meet Bai Li Hong.
After waiting for a long while, Duan Ling Tian still did not return. It was only natural for Bai Li Hong to be worried. Finally, when he saw Duan Ling Tian return with Feng Wu Dao and the others, he was shocked. “Junior Brother, this is…”
H-he was too efficient, right?
Apart from that, did the Sect Leader of Dark Nether Sect not notice his junior brother’s actions?
By right, the Sect Leader of Dark Nether Sect would have gone and stopped his junior brother from rescuing the others.
“Could it be that the Sect Leader of Dark Nether Sect is in closed-door cultivation, presenting Junior Brother with an opportunity to save the others?” This was the only conclusion Bai Li Hong could come up with.
It did not even cross Bai Li Hong’s mind that Duan Ling Tian had killed the Supreme Elder of Dark Nether Sect and caused the Sect Leader to flee. He did not even think about this because it seemed so impossible for him.
“Senior Brother, let’s return to the capital.” After motioning to Bai Li Hong, Duan Ling Tian raised his hand. He mobilized his vast True Energy and turned it into invisible energy to bring Feng Wu Dao and the others back to the capital of Windfall Nation.
During the journey, Bai Li Hong could no longer suppress the question in his heart. He asked, “Junior Brother, did the Sect Leader of Dark Nether Sect not show up at all?”
When Bai Li Hong’s words left his mouth, Feng Wu Dao and the others shifted their attention to Duan Ling Tian. They were curious about this matter as well.
Since something disastrous had happened to the sect, the Sect Leader of Dark Nether Sect should have made an appearance. However, he did not appear at all from the beginning until the end. Something strange was definitely going on.
They had a feeling that something must have happened that they were not aware of.
“He ran away,” Duan Ling Tian answered.
Duan Ling Tian’s words shocked Bai Li Hong, Feng Wu Dao, and the others.
“I killed the Supreme Elder of Dark Nether Sect, and the Sect Leader, Ye Feng, ran away,” Duan Ling Tian said. When he thought of Ye Feng escaping, he could not help but frown.
His plan to rescue the others had been almost perfect. However, Ye Feng escaping would bring unknown dangers to him.
The dangers might be unknown now. However, even he did not know what would happen once the news of the Devilseal Tablet being in his possession spread out.
Bai Li Hong and the others were even more shocked when they heard Duan Ling Tian say he had killed the Supreme Elder of Dark Nether Sect.
Bai Li Hong instantly came to a halt.
When Duan Ling Tian saw this, he also stopped moving along with Feng Wu Dao and the others.
“Duan Ling Tian, you’ve already broken through to the Saint Stage?” Chen Shao Shuai asked with widened eyes.
“You freak!” Nangong Yi looked at Duan Ling Tian as though he had just seen a ghost.
It was apparent Feng Wu Dao and the others shared the same sentiment.
They were already shocked by Duan Ling Tian’s progress after they found out he was Master Duan, the Interim Advisor of Situ Clan.
It had not been long, but Duan Ling Tian had already become strong enough to defeat Lady Feng from the Drift Blaze Sect and made it into the Heaven Ranking.
In their opinion, this was already amazing enough. They did not think they would hear something even more amazing.
Duan Ling Tian actually said he had killed the Supreme Elder of Dark Nether Sect! That man was a true Saint Stage powerhouse.
Although they were merely slaves in the Dark Nether Sect, they had stayed in the sect for quite a while after all. They also knew there were two Saint Stage powerhouses in the Dark Nether Sect.
Based on Duan Ling Tian words, one of the two Saint Stage powerhouses had died, and the other had run away.
Previously, Duan Ling Tian had mentioned that nobody from the Situ Clan came with him. He had come alone. In other words, Ye Feng, the Sect Leader of Dark Nether Sect, had run away because of Duan Ling Tian.
How could they not be baffled when they thought about this?
“Junior Brother, didn’t you say you haven’t broken through to the Saint Stage?” Bai Li Hong asked dazedly after a long while when he regained his senses.
At the same time, Feng Wu Dao and the others shifted their eyes to Duan Ling Tian. They were all curious about Duan Ling Tian’s answer.
“Senior Brother, I didn’t lie to you. I really haven’t broken through to the Saint Stage.” Duan Ling Tian remained calm under the watchful eyes of the others. “As for how I killed the Supreme Elder of Dark Nether Sect… I used some special technique… The Sect Leader of Dark Nether Sect ran away in shock when he saw the special technique.”
Based on Duan Ling Tian’s words, it was obvious it was not convenient for him to reveal the special technique he had used.
“You’re not a Saint Stage powerhouse, but you’re able to kill a Saint Stage powerhouse… Junior Brother, I really feel speechless.” Bai Li Hong sighed emotionally.
Regardless, he believed in Duan Ling Tian’s words.
Bai Li Hong was shocked even though he had only met Duan Ling Tian in the Dao Martial Saint Land. Imagine how shocked Feng Wu Dao and the others were since they knew him when they were on Cloud Continent. One could say they had witnessed Duan Ling Tian’s growth, step by step, with their own eyes.
Currently, Duan Ling Tian’s strength was at a level that they could not even compare to.
“I can’t believe our Cloud Continent actually produced a freak like you, Duan Ling Tian,” Chen Shao Shuai mused.
Feng Wu Dao and the others agreed with him.
“Uncle Feng.” Duan Ling Tian did not dwell on this topic. He looked at Feng Wu Dao and quickly changed the topic. “I’ve found Tian Wu.”
The moment Duan Ling Tian’s words left his mouth, Feng Wu Dao was not the only one looking at Duan Ling Tian with eyes filled with emotions. Bai Li Hong, Sima, and the others also turned to look at him simultaneously.
Bai Li Hong was familiar with Feng Tian Wu because Duan Ling Tian had asked him to send his people out to search for her. Similar to his junior brother, this woman had also come from Cloud Continent, and she was Feng Wu Dao’s daughter.
Naturally, Sima and the others knew who Feng Tian Wu was.
At the very least, after meeting Feng Wu Dao, they were no stranger to Feng Tian Wu. They knew she was Feng Wu Dao’s daughter, and there was some kind of ambiguous relationship between her and Duan Ling Tian.
Bai Li Hong and the others were happy for Feng Wu Dao when they found out that Duan Ling Tian had found Feng Tian Wu.
“Congratulations, Big Brother Feng.” Sima was the first one to congratulate Feng Wu Dao. They had regarded each other as brothers after spending several years together.
“Congratulations, Uncle Feng.” Chen Shao Shuai and the Nangong Twins congratulated Feng Wu Dao as well.
“Miss Tian Wu!” Not only did Xiong Quan and Gold Thug know Feng Tian Wu, but they had spent quite some time with her as well. Their eyes lit up immediately when they found out their young master had found her.
“T-Tian Wu… Where’s she now? Is she in the Situ Clan?” Feng Wu Dao stared at Duan Ling Tian with a burning gaze. His breathing had quickened as well.
“No.” Duan Ling Tian shook his head.
“No?” Feng Wu Dao frowned.
Duan Ling Tian nodded. “This is because Tian Wu’s master has forbidden her from leaving her sect. Currently, she still in her sect. After we return to the Situ Clan, I’ll bring you to Tian Wu.”
