Chapter 3095: Jiang Lan’s Interference
Translator: EndlessFantasy Translation Editor: EndlessFantasy Translation
In Devata Realms, a Celestial could brand an enslavement mark on another Celestial’s soul if the latter was willing to accept the mark. Once the latter was branded, the latter had to obey the former. If the latter disobeyed the former, with just a thought, the former could reduce the latter to ashes. Needless to say, apart from being willing, the strength of the latter had to be weaker or on par with the former.
Currently, Ling Jue Yun and Jiang Lan were both peak Overarching Heavenly Supreme Celestials. Therefore, as long as Ling Jue Yun was willing, Jiang Lan could brand Ling Jue Yun’s soul with an enslavement mark.
However, as of now, Jiang Lan was unaware that although he was a reincarnated Celestial Emperor, Ling Jue Yun’s background was much more extraordinary than him. It would be impossible for Ling Jue Yun to willingly accept being a slave to a mere reincarnated Celestial Emperor.
Jiang Lan continued to sit cross-legged above the towering tree in the cave on the floating island as he indifferently watched the gruesome scene in front of him.
One after another, peak Overarching Heavenly Supreme Celestials died. Their blood and soul were all absorbed by the tree of the Heaven Sacrificial Divine Fruit as nutrients. With a constant supply of nutrients, the tree was slowly but surely changing. Initially, the color darkened. Then, it grew more and more branches that sprouted more and more leaves. Clearly, the tree of the Heaven Sacrificial Divine Fruit was thriving.
The fights in the cave were all one-on-one. Jiang Lan planned for them to fight until only the last survivor remained. At that time, he would finally make a move and kill the last person standing as a sacrifice to the tree of the Heaven Sacrificial Divine Fruit.
“You’ve truly overestimated yourself!” At this moment, Duan Ling Tian’s ring burned with a dazzling flame. It swept out and killed a middle-aged man.
Following that, the middle-aged man’s blood energy and soul fire were absorbed by the tree of the Heaven Sacrificial Divine Fruit.
At this moment, Duan Ling Tian was already numb to the deaths. If he did not remain indifferent, he would only be killed. He could only stay indifferent, without joy or sorrow at this moment.
These people were here mainly due to their greed. As sad as the situation was, they were not completely without blame.
‘Without Huang’er and the three Divine Elements, I would’ve ended up like them, becoming nutrients to the tree of the Heaven Sacrificial Divine Fruit.’ After killing the middle-aged man, Duan Ling Tian stole a quick and furtive glance at the tree of the Heaven Sacrificial Divine Fruit and thought. Since earlier, he had already seen Jiang Lan who was sitting cross-legged above the tree. Therefore, he was extremely careful, afraid of exposing himself. After all, just as Ling Jue Yun had said, if Jiang Lan learned that he could see through the Illusory Formation, Jiang Lan would definitely be on guard. After all, it was entirely different fighting a reincarnated Celestial Emperor who was on guard and one who was unaware. At that time, it would be much more difficult for him to snatch the Heaven Sacrificial Divine Fruits from Jiang Lan if the tree managed to bear fruits.
Another person appeared in front of Duan Ling Tian when he was lost in his thoughts. It was a green-clad young man.
The green-clad young man looked at Duan Ling Tian with eyes that were flashing with killing intent, and he used his killing move as soon as he acted. He had comprehended two profundities from the law of water. When he struck, his attacks were fluid like water as it gushed toward Duan Ling Tian as though it was going to put out Duan Ling Tian’s flames.
Swoosh! Swoosh! Swoosh!
The green-clad young man’s attacks were fast, but they could not compare to Duan Ling Tian who was attacking with a Royal Grade Celestial Weapon. The flames passed through the water attack and evaporated the water into mist.
“No!!!” With a final cry, the green-clad young man was killed by Duan Ling Tian. Fortunately or unfortunately, he could not see Duan Ling Tian’s fights with the others due to the Illusory Formation. Otherwise, he would not have the courage to attack Duan Ling Tian after seeing how many peak Overarching Heavenly Supreme Celestials who had comprehended two profundities from a law Duan Ling Tian had killed with just a strike.
Up until now, Duan Ling Tian had only used two profundities from the law of fire, the Fire Elemental Profundity and the Pillaging Profundity. With the Royal Grade Celestial Weapon, the Mystical Yang Nine Water Chestnut Ring, it was fairly easy for him to kill his opponents. Naturally, that was also because his opponents thus far only comprehended two profundities from a law. He had yet to encounter a more powerful peak Overarching Heavenly Supreme Celestial.
Based on Duan Ling Tian’s current strength, he would, at most, be evenly matched with a peak Overarching Heavenly Supreme Celestial who had comprehended three profundities from a law. That was under the condition that his opponent used a King Grade Celestial Weapon while he used the Royal Grade Celestial Weapon, the Mystical Yang Nine Water Chestnut Ring.
‘It seems like Ling Jue Yun plans to hide his power of blood, Emperor Grade Celestial Weapons, and divine artifact...’ Duan Ling Tian had snuck a glance in Ling Jue Yun’s direction and saw Ling Jue Yun was only using three profundities from the law of death. Although Ling Jue Yun did not use the God of Death’s Scythe Profundity that he had yet to master, Ling Jue Yun managed to kill his opponents with a strike.
‘No wonder the law of death is one of the Four Supreme Laws... The other peak Overarching Heavenly Supreme Celestials who have comprehended three profundities of a law like him aren’t a match for him who has comprehended one of the Four Supreme Laws,’ Duan Ling Tian thought to himself.
As time passed, the number of peak Overarching Heavenly Supreme Celestials who were still alive continued to dwindle. Initially, there were more than 10,000 people. However, after half a day, only slightly more than 1,000 people were alive.
After killing another opponent, Duan Ling Tian looked around and saw Murong Xiao Xiao. She was fine apart from looking slightly miserable. “Murong Xiao Xiao is quite lucky. So far, she hasn’t met anyone who has comprehended three profundities from a law... Her opponents were all weaker than her so far so she has no problem killing them...”
After a while, Duan Ling Tian shifted his gaze to Lin Fei Yang. ‘And there’s Lin Fei Yang...’
At this time, Lin Fei Yang had only cast two profundities from the law of water he had mastered and one profundity from the law of water that he had barely comprehended. However, Duan Ling Tian had a feeling Lin Fei Yang was concealing his true strength.
Lin Fei Yang had been chosen by a second-form World Cleansing Divine Water as its host since the time he was in his mother’s womb. Someone like that definitely had heaven-defying talent in comprehending the law of water. It was impossible that he had comprehended so few profundities from the law of water.
Soon after, Duan Ling Tian saw a black-clad middle-aged man appearing in front of Lin Fei Yang. ‘I might be able to see Lin Fei Yang’s true strength during this fight.’ He knew about the black-clad middle-aged man. The middle-aged man was rather powerful and had comprehended three powerful profundities from the law of wind. Earlier, the middle-aged man had killed all of his opponents with the ease of flicking one’s finger.
‘If Lin Fei Yang continues hiding his true strength, he’ll definitely die!’ Duan Ling Tian watched as he thought to himself, ‘If he dies, the second-form World Cleansing Divine Water in his body would be without a host. At that time, the hostless second-form World Cleansing Divine Water who’s deep in slumber would be vulnerable. However, under the current circumstances, it’d be difficult for me to obtain the second-form World Cleansing Divine Water. After all, as soon as I make a move, Jiang Lan would find out that I can see through the Illusory Formation.’
Duan Ling Tian began to feel slightly anxious as he continued thinking to himself, ‘Although Jiang Lan might not recognize the World Cleansing Divine Water, he’s someone who comprehended the law of water. He’d be able to sense how extraordinary the World Cleansing Divine Water is and obtain it for himself.’
If it was possible, Duan Ling Tian, naturally, hoped to obtain the second-form World Cleansing Divine Water after Lin Fei Yang’s death. With that, he would possess all Five Divine Elements. It would definitely help him greatly in the future.
Currently, he only had slightly more than 900 years left before the Divine Offering Land opened. At that time, he had to save Ke’er, his family, and his friends and take them away from the Divine Offering Land.
Meanwhile, as Duan Ling Tian watched Lin Fei Yang, Jiang Lan was watching Duan Ling Tian with a sinister smile on his face. “Duan Ling Tian and Ling Jue Yun seem very at ease...”
Subsequently, Jiang Lan raised his hand and began to trace some complicated patterns in the air.
At the same time, Duan Ling Tian and Ling Jue Yun noticed that it was taking longer for their opponents to show up. Both of them instinctively glanced at Jiang Lan and saw his moving his hand in the air. Both of them came to the conclusion that the matter had something to do with Jiang Lan. Things were progressing normally until Jiang Lan made a move.
“Duan Ling Tian, I think Jiang Lan thinks we’re having it easy and is trying to find us tougher opponents...” Ling Jue Yun said to Duan Ling Tian through Voice Transmission.
“I agree. I wonder if he’ll make us fight each other...” Duan Ling Tian replied through Voice Transmission.
“That would be the best... if he makes us fight, we just need to show him we’re evenly matched until there’s no one left or until the tree bears fruits. If the tree fails to bear fruits, it’d be reduced to ashes!” Ling Jue Yun said.
