“That’s not right!” Han Xue Nai, who had just made a guessed earlier, seemed to have thought of something suddenly and she shook her head in denial of her own theory. “Rumor has it that the Vast Sky Pagoda is in the hands of a top Saint Stage powerhouse. It’s impossible for it to appear here.”
“If it isn’t the Vast Sky Pagoda, then what could it be?” Di Yong looked at the petite and exquisite pagoda in Duan Ling Tian’s hands and murmured. He frowned, feeling totally clueless.
At that time, regardless of Han Xue Nai, Di Yong or the three Vice Island Masters of Half Moon Island, none of them noticed that Duan Ling Tian’s body shuddered involuntarily.
Simultaneously, there was a gleam in the depth of his eyes.
“I remember! I remember now!”
Duan Ling Tian felt extremely excited as he looked at the small pagoda in his hands. “The Seven Treasures Exquisite Pagoda… In the ancient myth and legends of Hua on Earth in my past life, it’s the Celestial Supreme Treasure in the hands of the Heavenly King with a Pagoda in Hand, Li Jing!”
There were several versions about the legends of the Heavenly King with a Pagoda in Hand, Li Jing. Nevertheless, all the versions mentioned the Celestial Supreme Treasure in his hand, the Seven Treasures Exquisite Pagoda!
However, Duan Ling Tian quickly calmed down. “Perhaps it’s just a coincidence that they have the same name.”
In the past, he had never believed in the ancient myths and legend from his past life because they were too ridiculous.
However, he changed his mind after he arrived in this world.
Moreover, there would not be smoke without a fire, so there must be some truth in the ancient myths and legends that were passed down.
If the legends were real, then maybe those legendary characters were real too.
“You’re from Yan Huang Land. Why would you appear here?” Suddenly, the old voice sounded again and shocked Duan Ling Tian.
This time, Duan Ling Tian heard it clearly. This voice which could only be heard by him came from the bottom-most level of the Seven Treasures Exquisite Pagoda.
“Who are you?” Duan Ling Tian asked curiously by sending a Voice Transmission to the bottom of the Seven Treasures Exquisite Pagoda.
“Me? I’m the one and only Three-legged Golden Crow. The people from Yan Huang Land honor me as the divine sunbird,” continued the old voice, sharing its identity.
“The Three-legged Golden Crow? Divine sunbird?”
Duan Ling Tian was dumbfounded as his Voice Transmission was laced with shock and incredibility. “You… Wait, are you the legendary final Three-legged Golden Crow that escaped Hou Yi’s arrow?”
Duan Ling Tian remembered that there was a legend about Hou Yi shooting the sun in his past life.
Legend had it that in ancient times, there were eleven suns in the sky. One of it was originally there, while the other ten appeared later.
The ten extra suns were actually ten mischievous golden crows. The myth was that they were the sons of the Heavenly Emperor then.
The appearance of the eleven suns caused drought and the earth dried up, making times hard for the people.
At that time, a human powerhouse called Hou Yi shot nine of the golden crows in succession with his unparalleled skills. Only one bird escaped.
“I didn’t expect you to know this. That was a long time ago,” resumed the old voice in a calm and placid manner.
However, the way he said it undoubtedly confirmed his identity.
He was the Three-legged Golden Crow that had escaped Hou Yi’s arrow in the ancient myths and legends from Duan Ling Tian’s past life. He was also the divine sunbird known by the future generations.
“You… Are you really that Three-legged Golden Crow?” Duan Ling Tian secretly gasped, and said excitedly, “So, does it mean that you’re from Earth like me?”
“Earth?” The Three-legged Golden Crow’s tone was filled with confusion.
“Yan Huang Land is on Earth,” Duan Ling Tian explained.
“Yan Huang Land… I left that place a long time ago. I can’t even remember how long ago it was. As for the Earth you’ve mentioned, we called it Planet Yan Huang,” the Three-legged Golden Crow said.
“Planet Yan Huang was my hometown.” As the Three-legged Golden Crow spoke, his tone became somewhat sentimental.
“Planet Yan Huang?” Duan Ling Tian was stunned. It was his first time hearing that Earth had another name, but that was not the point right then.
“How did you get here?”
The Three-legged Golden Crow asked again, “I felt that your soul holds the aura of Yan Huang Land. Your hometown should also be on Planet Yan Huang.”
“I was killed in an accident because I was betrayed. Then, my soul crossed over to this world and was reincarnated in another body,” Duan Ling Tian said with a bitter smile.
“Can that truly happen?” The Three-legged Golden Crow’s tone was filled with surprise. Evidently, he could not understand Duan Ling Tian’s experience.
“What about you? How did you come?” Duan Ling Tian asked, somewhat excited in his heart.
The Three-legged Golden Crow was from Earth like him! However, he was merely an ordinary human being on Earth, but the Three-legged Golden Crow was a powerful existence in ancient myths and legends who had a strength comparable to the gods.
His heart was full of curiosity about how the Three-legged Golden Crow had arrived there.
“Perhaps, I could go back to Earth,” Duan Ling Tian secretly thought.
“I came along with the Seven Treasures Exquisite Pagoda. Before Li Jing was killed, he forcefully tore through time and space and threw the Seven Treasures Exquisite Pagoda into the black hole.”
The Three-legged Golden Crow recalled, “The Seven Treasures Exquisite Pagoda was severely damaged after it was thrown into the black hole. Even I was seriously injured. I didn’t wake up until a hundred years ago, and then I began to recover from my injuries.”
“Li Jing? You meant the Heavenly King with a Pagoda in Hand, Li Jing? Nezha’s father?” Duan Ling Tian secretly gasped again and asked.
“It’s him.” Then, the Three-legged Golden Crow mocked, “He’s a useless guy! Dipankara, the old monk, actually gave the Seven Treasures Exquisite Pagoda to him, but it was such a waste!”
“The Seven Treasures Exquisite Pagoda was damaged. Not only was I seriously injured, but even the six other Celestial Supreme Treasures in the Seven Treasures Exquisite Pagoda were also damaged. I don’t even know when they can be recovered,” sighed the Three-legged Golden Crow.
“Six other Celestial Supreme Treasures?” Duan Ling Tian’s eyes lit up when he heard that.
However, before he had the time to continue asking the Three-legged Golden Crow, Di Yong’s voice already echoed in his ear, “Boy, everything’s cleared between you and me, so I should leave now and head to Dao Martial Saint Land.”
Di Yong left after he spoke to Duan Ling Tian. He did not even tell the three Vice Island Masters of Half Moon Island.
Following that, Duan Ling Tian called out to Han Xue Nai and brought the three Vice Island Masters to go back to Half Moon Island.
After they returned to Half Moon Island, Duan Ling Tian went back to the residence he had stayed at for the past year in his room. He never even had the time to greet the two women and the three little fellows.
When Duan Ling Tian was back in his room, he stared intensely at the Seven Treasures Exquisite Pagoda in his hands and asked, “Earlier, you said that there were six other Celestial Supreme Treasure in the Seven Treasures Exquisite Pagoda, didn’t you?”
“Of course! The Seven Treasures Exquisite Pagoda is known as the Seven Treasures Exquisite Pagoda because there are seven treasures in it,” the Three-legged Golden Crow said.
“Seven Treasures? Apart from the six Celestial Supreme Treasures. What about the one other treasure?” Duan Ling Tian asked puzzledly.
“The one other treasure naturally was me,” revealed the Three-legged Golden Crow.
“I’ve almost forgotten about you.” Duan Ling Tian smiled awkwardly and asked again, “What are the six other Celestial Supreme Treasures?”
“The six other Celestial Supreme Treasures are the Jasper Celestial Sword, the Astonish God Halberd, the Universe Ruler, the Heaven Net Umbrella, the Cleansed World Horsetail Whisk, and the War Heaven Spear.”
“Can you lend me one?” Duan Ling Tian asked with a burning passion in his eyes.
Six pieces of Celestial Supreme Treasures… One would know that they were relics just from the name. If he could obtain one, would he not be invincible?
Those were Celestial Supreme Treasures!
Before the Celestial Supreme Treasures, even the ten greatest Super Saint Weapons in the Ten Great Saint Weapon Rankings on Dao Martial Saint Land was nothing compared to it.
“If you want to use it, go and get it yourself! They are on the second to the seventh level of the Seven Treasures Exquisite Pagoda respectively,” shared the Three-legged Golden Crow.
“Get it myself? How can I get it?”
Duan Ling Tian looked at the Seven Treasures Exquisite Pagoda in his hands. “Could it be possible that I have to find somewhere spacious and ask the Seven Treasures Exquisite Pagoda to enlarge to enter?”
“When we were on the seabed, the Seven Treasures Exquisite Pagoda already established you as the owner. Now, you merely need a thought to enter the Seven Treasures Exquisite Pagoda.”
“A thought?” Duan Ling Tian looked at the Seven Treasures Exquisite Pagoda in his hands. With a thought, he felt a flash appear before his eyes and then he found that he had arrived at a strange place.
It was a spacious and expansive space.
When he first entered, he felt a burning aura on his face as if he was in a world of fire. However, the burning aura only disappeared moments later.
At the same time, Duan Ling Tian saw a big bird which suddenly appeared before him. It was a huge bird with golden flames around it.
The biggest difference between this bird and an ordinary bird was that it had three feet. Ordinary birds merely had two feet.
“You… Are you the Three-legged Golden Crow?” Duan Ling Tian gasped and asked with a shocked expression when he saw the flaming bird which exuded a strong aura.
The flaming bird, which was the Three-legged Golden Crow, nodded. “This is the first level of the Seven Treasures Exquisite Pagoda. The Seven Treasures Exquisite Pagoda was severely damaged after it came here through the black hole.”
“So far, only the first level has been recovered. For that reason, I was awoken,” the Three-legged Golden Crow continued saying.
He was one of the seven treasures of the Seven Treasures Exquisite Pagoda which guarded the first level of the Seven Treasures Exquisite Pagoda that was the most important level. To get to the second level, one must pass through the first level.
“Just now, you said that the Seven Treasures Exquisite Pagoda had established you as the owner? When did that happen?” Duan Ling Tian asked.
Currently, what he wanted to know the most was that he remembered that he did not let the Seven Treasures Exquisite Pagoda establish any ownership.
Establishing ownership seemed to require a Blood Ownership Claim, did it not?
“When the Seven Treasures Exquisite Pagoda helped you be reincarnated, he had already established you as his master,” explained the Three-legged Golden Crow.
