“Previously, I also thought the Ninth Level Martial Emperor Stage is the limit for a martial artist, but as it turns out, this is not the case.” Duan Ling Tian sighed.
“What do you mean? Don’t tell me there are people more powerful than Martial Emperors?” Sima asked with eyes as wide as saucers.
In his opinion, Martial Emperors were legendary and invincible. However, Duan Ling Tian just told him that the Ninth Level Martial Emperor Stage was not the limit? He had implied that there was an even more powerful force other than a Ninth Level Martial Emperor.
“Teacher, a Ninth level Martial Emperor is indeed someone who stands at the summit of Cloud Continent. However, there’s an even bigger world outside of Cloud Continent,” Duan Ling Tian continued to patiently explain to Sima who was in a daze.
He was extremely shocked.
When Duan Ling Tian finished explaining, Sima sighed and mocked himself, “Ignorance, ignorance… Looks like Sima is ignorant!”
“Well, you should say that 99% of the people on Cloud Continent are ignorant… And this includes the former me as well.” Duan Ling Tian smiled wryly.
“Teacher, the reason I came back this time is mainly to ask if all of you are interested in going to the Overseas Saint Islands or not… With my help and the help of the top grade cultivation environment over there, your strength will improve by leaps and bounds.” Duan Ling Tian’s voice was filled with temptation. “You’ll at least make it to the Martial Monarch Stage! It’s not impossible for you to make a breakthrough to the Martial Emperor Stage as well!”
“Martial Monarch Stage?” Sima’s breathing quickened when he heard Duan Ling Tian’s words. “C-Can I really?”
“Why not? Don’t forget you’re my, Duan Ling Tian’s teacher after all!” Duan Ling Tian replied and smiled confidently.
If it was someone else, Duan Ling Tian would not be so confident… However, Sima’s innate talent and comprehension ability were originally high. With his help, it would not be difficult for him to break through to the Martial Monarch Stage. In fact, it was not impossible for him to break through to the Martial Emperor Stage as well.
Even if he had a slightly bad innate talent, so what?
It was not a problem.
There was a record in the Rebirth Martial Emperor’s memory about the location of the 10,000 Year Stalactite Milk.
If he retrieved the 10,000 Year Stalactite Milk, he would be able to let Sima experience a ‘rebirth’ and grant him the highest innate talent a martial artist on Cloud Continent could have.
How about a slightly bad comprehension ability?
Not a problem as well.
He had all kinds of Concept and Profundity Fragments…
“Alright! I’ll go with you…” Sima’s face was full of smiles as he said emotionally, “In my entire life, I’ve only focused on the Martial Dao. Until now, I’m not married, and I’m all alone in the world. If my cultivation base can break through to the Martial Monarch Stage, then everything wouldn’t have been in vain.”
Sima had no commitments so, in just a few exchanges, he instantly agreed to leave with Duan Ling Tian.
As for the others, they all had their own commitments.
Due to this, there was only one additional person when they left. There were four people who left even though only three arrived. Sima was the additional person.
Duan Ling Tian respected the decisions of those who were unwilling to leave.
In the future when he was free, he would come back to visit them again.
At that time, he would bring them with him if they wanted to leave as well.
After leaving the Crimson Sky Kingdom, Duan Ling Tian and the group arrived at the sky high above a remote forest in the Azure Forest Imperial Kingdom. Soon after, Ke’er, Li Fei, and Sima descended under Duan Ling Tian’s guidance.
When the three of them landed on the ground, all of them narrowed their eyes. They instantly fell into a daze.
This was because they had seen the word ‘Sword’ on the canyon wall in front and were attracted by it. It was as though their souls had been instantly sucked out. The huge word ‘Sword’ was carved and left behind by Feng Qing Yang, the Sword Saint.
This word ‘Sword’ contained his Sword Dao.
It was precisely because of the superficial knowledge from the word ‘Sword’ that Duan Ling Tian managed to comprehend the Ninth Level Emperor Stage Sword Profundity in a short period of time… The Ninth level Emperor Stage Profundity was also the peak of the Profundity!
“Ling Tian boy?” Suddenly, a familiar voice entered Duan Ling Tian’s ears.
When Duan Ling Tian saw a red-robed middle-aged man sitting cross-legged as he cultivated with his eyes closed had been awoken by them, he smiled and greeted, “Uncle Feng.”
The red-robed middle-aged man was none other than Feng Wu Dao, Feng Tian Wu’s father.
“They’re…” Feng Wu Dao stood up and immediately looked at Ke’er, Li Fei, and Sima who were by Duan Ling Tian’s side. His eyes were filled with curiosity.
“Uncle Feng, they’re my fiancés. I’ve mentioned them to you previously… As for him, he’s my teacher from my hometown,” Duan Ling Tian introduced them with a smile on his face.
“Alright.” Feng Wu Dao nodded and continued to study the two girls solemnly. When he saw their unparalleled beauty, he could not help but fall deep into his own thoughts. Both of them were in no way inferior to his daughter, Feng Tian Wu, in regards to beauty.
“Ling Tian boy, where’s Tian Wu? She didn’t come back with you?” Feng Wu Dao asked.
The moment Duan Ling Tian heard Feng Wu Dao mentioned ‘Feng Tian Wu’, a guilty look appeared on his face immediately. “Uncle Feng, I’m sorry… I’m at fault for not taking good care of Tian Wu.”
“What happened to her?” An ominous feeling rose up in Feng Wu Dao’s heart and horror dawned on his face immediately when he saw Duan Ling Tian apologizing to him with a guilty expression.
At the same time, the red robe on his body began to flutter. Origin Energy soared up into the sky and transformed into a sword-shaped flame that emitted waves of sharp aura. It was as though it could cut through everything.
“Don’t worry, Uncle Feng. Tian Wu’s alright,” Duan Ling Tian immediately reassured him. He could see that Feng Wu Dao had misunderstood.
Upon hearing Duan Ling Tian’s reassurance, Feng Wu Dao finally eased up. The sword-shaped flame on his body began to dissipate as well. “Then, what do your words mean…”
“Uncle Feng, I said I didn’t take good care of Tian Wu because…” Duan Ling Tian interrupted Feng Wu Dao and recounted everything that had happened to him.
He told him everything except for the part about the Devilseal Tablet being a Super Saint Weapon in the Dao Martial Saint Land’s Ten Great Saint Weapons Rankings.
Feng Wu Dao learned about what happened to Feng Tian Wu and found out she had been taken as a disciple by a force in the Dao Martial Saint Land.
Duan Ling Tian also told Feng Wu Dao about the Dao Martial Saint Land, shocking him and making him feel ignorant.
After knowing Feng Tian Wu was safe, Feng Wu Dao heaved a sigh of relief.
“Uncle Feng, I’m going to the Dao Martial Saint Land after I settle my affairs on Cloud Continent… At that time, I’ll definitely search for Feng Tian Wu,” Duan Ling Tian told Feng Wu Dao solemnly, “Due to this reason, you can rest assured, Uncle Feng. I’ll definitely find Tian Wu.”
“Don’t worry. As long as Tian Wu’s safe, she’ll definitely come back to visit,” Feng Wu Dao replied.
Duan Ling Tian nodded.
Duan Ling Tian did not see any other person around so he looked at Feng Wu Dao and asked, “Oh, yeah! Uncle Feng, where’s Er Hu?”
Er Hu was the boy in Xiong Quan’s village.
He was also the only person in Xiong Quan’s village who knew about the secret here.
“That Er Hu boy always wanders around outside when he’s idle. Right now, he can already be considered as the strongest person in both the Azure Forest Imperial Kingdom and the Darkstone Empire.” Feng Wu Dao smiled.
