Chapter 3430: Feng Qing Yang’s Return After 200 Years
The Ten Great Dynasty was considered a rural area in the Saint Province Realm. The average strength of the people there was among the lowest in the Saint Province Realm. Even a sectless celestial with an average cultivation base could easily massacre everyone in the Ten Great Dynasty, let alone Celestial Emperors who were generally considered the most powerful in Devata Realms.
“No, no, no, everything’s gone…” Duan Ling Tian could not accept this. He was here not too long ago with Huan’er. They traveled to the Fresh Breeze Town and Aurora City before traveling to other places. There were legends about him in all the places they visited and many of his friends’ descendants. Now they were all gone.
“The Heavenly Emperor of the Luo River Sect…” Duan Ling Tian said through gritted teeth. To think that a Heavenly Emperor of a Devata Realm would stoop so low as to massacre all living things in a mundane realm!
When Duan Ling Tian regained his senses, he inhaled deeply to suppress his surging emotions. Nevertheless, his expression was still terrible.
“If Little Fei’er, Tian Wu, or my parents learn of this, they’ll be very saddened… It’s time for me to break the news to them…”
Initially, Duan Ling Tian had planned to keep this a secret from his loved ones. However, he knew he would not be able to keep this a secret forever. In the end, he thought it was better that they learn about this sooner rather than later. There was no need to hide this from them.
Just as Duan Ling Tian expected, everyone was furious and sad when they learned about what happened. No one expected that a Heavenly Emperor of a Devata Realm would do something like that.
“Tian’er, I know you want revenge… However, it’s best if you don’t expose yourself before you’re powerful enough to take them down. Moreover, Heavenly Emperor Feng Qing Yang surely won’t let this matter slide when he returns. Don’t take unnecessary risks…” Duan Ru Feng solemnly said. He was worried his son would act rashly out of anger and rush to the Luo River Heaven to seek revenge. However, after he finished speaking, he felt that his worries were unfounded. After all, his son had much more experience in the Devata Realms compared to him. Even without his reminder, his son was certainly aware of all the things he had mentioned.
“Father, I know what to do. Don’t worry.” Duan Ling Tian said.
At this time, a frown could be seen on Han Xue Nai’s face. She asked, “Brother Ling Tian, can we take a look at the Greenwave Han Mansion?”
The Greenwave Han Mansion was where Han Xue Nai came from in the Saint Province Realm. Now that a few hundred years had passed, she was clueless about her family’s situation. She was naturally worried.
“Alright.” Duan Ling Tian nodded. He was reminded that Han Xue Nai’s hometown was not located in the Ten Great Dynasty.
Duan Ling Tian flew in the direction of the Greenwave Han Mansion following the route in his memory. He wondered if Han Xue Nai’s family members were still alive. After all, her family members had rather high cultivation bases so they could live for a long time if nothing untoward happened.
When Duan Ling Tian arrived at the Greenwave Han Mansion, he discovered that the Greenwave Han Mansion, similar to the Ten Great Dynasty, was bathed in blood as well.
“No! Impossible!” Han Xue Nai looked at the ruins of the Greenwave Han Mansion in disbelief. Pain flashed in her eyes; her family, her home, everything was gone.
“Brother Ling Tian!” Han Xue Nai rushed into Duan Ling Tian’s arms and began to sob uncontrollably.
Duan Ling Tian could empathize with her pain. He reached out and patted her back. “Xue Nai, don’t worry. A few hundred years have passed; it’s possible that they’ve moved elsewhere…”
Duan Ling Tian’s words were only meant to console Han Xue Nai. In fact, he thought it was likely that Han Xue Nai’s family had met with a disaster.
At this moment, Duan Ling Tian’s anger and hatred toward Situ Zhuqing, the Heavenly Emperor of the Luo River Sect, grew so much that they almost overwhelmed him.
After Duan Ling Tian became a Celestial Emperor, he had never once felt he was extremely powerful even if he possessed the Five Divine Elements. After all, there were too many elites. However, it had been a long time since he had felt so weak and helpless.
When he was still in the mundane realm, he was already aware of the existence of the Realms of Gods. He knew celestials from Devata Realms were no match for those from Realms of Gods at all. For example, just the servant of Yun Qing Yan, the Young Master of the Yun Clan in the Divine Offering Land, was able to force Feng Qing Yang to escape to the Asura Hell, one of the seven deadliest places in the Devata Realms.
“Xue Nai, don’t worry… If something really happened to them, I promise I’ll capture the culprit for you to kill!” Duan Ling Tian promised Han Xue Nai in a low voice.
Since Meng Luo was aware of Duan Ling Tian’s power and potential, he knew Duan Ling Tian was not making empty promises.
Perhaps, if another titled Celestial, who was unaware of Duan Ling Tian’s strength and potential, were present, they would think Duan Ling Tian was talking nonsense. After all, Duan Ling Tian was only an ordinary Celestial Emperor. Although the Heavenly Emperor of the Luo River Heaven was only average among all the Heavenly Emperors, she was still a Seven Star God of War. How could an ordinary Celestial Emperor capture or kill someone like that? It sounded like a joke.
After consoling Han Xue Nai and sending her back to his Little World, Duan Ling Tian asked, “Senior Meng Luo, since the Heavenly Emperor of the Luo River Heaven knows you intervened and that this is where master came from, she won’t dare to act rashly, right?”
“That’s right!” Meng Luo said confidently.
Duan Ling Tian sighed in relief upon hearing these words. Although the places he knew and the descendants of the people he knew were gone, the Saint Province Realm as a whole was his hometown. It was only natural that he did not want disaster to befall the Saint Province Realm.
After Duan Ling Tian and Meng Luo returned to the Heavenly Palace of the Solitary Destructive Heaven, he discovered that everyone was incredibly focused on cultivating, unlike before where they would take breaks and chat with each other.
It was obvious that the massacre in the Saint Province Realm had placed a huge pressure on his loved ones. In the past, they were under the illusion they would be able to live a peaceful and safe life in the mundane realm. After all, even if they were only average in Devata Realms, they would be invincible in the mundane realms. However, this matter made them realize they were not 100% safe even if they chose to live in a mundane realm; there were many factors that they did not account for. In the end, they realized that they would not be fully in charge of their own fates unless they grew stronger and stronger.
This matter weighed heavily on their hearts, hence, they began to focus on their cultivation. Even Mu Yi Yi who was affected by the atmosphere began to cultivate.
‘By the look of things, most of them should be able to become Celestial Lords and Celestial Emperors soon…’
After checking up on his family in his Little Word, Duan Ling Tian focused on his cultivation as well. Similar to the others, he felt the pressure weighing heavily on his shoulders.
Two Heavenly Emperors appeared in Duan Ling Tian’s mind as he cultivated: Situ Zhuqing, the Heavenly Emperor of the Luo River Heaven; Yang Yun Xiao, the Heavenly Emperor of the Floating Heaven Yang Yun Xiao. He could not wait until he was strong enough to kill the former and force the latter to hand over Kong You Yi’s father, the Almighty Wind Celestial Emperor.
The days continued to pass.
Every once in a while, Elder Huo would send over some Celestial Pills and Celestial Fruits suitable for a Celestial Emperor to Duan Ling Tian.
Celestial Pills and Celestial Fruits were not very popular in the Heavenly Palace of the Solitary Destructive Heaven so there were not many of them in the Heavenly Palace. Perhaps, it was because Feng Qing Yang had never had a true disciple before.
Naturally, the titled Celestial Emperors in the Heavenly Palace of the Solitary Destructive Heaven possessed these things. However, since these were part of their personal belongings, they would naturally give them to their respective disciples. How could they freely give them away to Duan Ling Tian?
For this reason, Elder Huo looked for these titled Celestial Emperors and traded with them fairly for the Celestial Pill and Celestial Fruits that would be useful to Duan Ling Tian.
Under such circumstances, Duan Ling Tian and his loved ones improved at a shocking speed.
While Duan Ling Tian cultivated, he did not forget to continue learning how to fuse his profundities from the law of space with the Supreme Powerhouse Divinity. As expected, his comprehension speed was incredibly fast with the help of the Supreme Powerhouse Divinity.
Time flew by quickly. In just a blink of an eye, more than 200 years had passed.
During this time, the Heavenly Palace of the Solitary Destructive Heaven did not change much. After all, 200 years were not long for celestials in Devata Realms.
At this time, Duan Ling Tian who was cultivating in his room heard Elder Huo calling out to him.
Duan Ling Tian stopped cultivating and left immediately. “Elder Huo, what’s the matter?”
During the first 100 years, Elder Huo would visit him frequently. However, as time passed, the frequency of visits had dropped. After all, Celestial Pills and Celestial Fruits were not endless even in the Heavenly Palace of the Solitary Destructive Heaven.
As soon as Elder Huo saw Duan Ling Tian, he said with a smile, “Young Master, our Lord Heavenly Emperor has returned!”
Duan Ling Tian, who had assumed Elder Huo had come to give him Celestial Pills and Celestial Fruits like before, was stunned. Soon after, a delighted expression appeared on his face. His eyes shone brightly as he asked, “Truly? He’s returned from the Asura Hell?”
“That’s right.” Elder Huo nodded with a smile on his face. “Lord Heavenly Emperor just returned today. When he heard you’re in the Heavenly Palace of the Solitary Destructive Heaven, he asked me to bring you over to meet him.” A hint of reverence could be heard in his voice when he mentioned Feng Qing Yang.
“Let’s go!” Duan Ling Tian said excitedly. He was finally going to meet his master, Feng Qing Yang. Ever since he ascended to a Devata Realm and learned that Feng Qing Yang did not perish in the Asura Hell, he had been looking forward to meeting Feng Qing Yang. Now, the day had finally arrived.
