However, the carriage Lin Qing Rong brought out was even more luxurious.
“Get in.” Lin Qing Rong took the lead and entered the carriage after inviting Duan Ling Tian and Guo Li in.
Guo Li did not seem surprised and entered the carriage.
Duan Ling Tian was the last one to enter the carriage. When he entered the carriage, he realized it was like two combined horse carriages in there… The only thing missing was the horse.
When Duan Ling Tian was wondering how the carriage operated, Lin Qing Rong’s voice sounded, “Sit tight.”
The carriage began to move as soon as he spoke.
Duan Ling Tian noticed the wooden table where Lin Qing Rong placed his hand on was sparkling. It seemed like he was controlling the carriage with his True Energy.
‘So this is what someone at the Paramount Mortal Shedding Stage is capable of? I can’t believe True Energy can be used like this.” Duan Ling Tian was inwardly impressed when he saw this.
During the journey, Duan Ling Tian watched the bustling streets filled with carriages through the window.
Out of boredom, he performed Divine Eye and casually looked outside… Apart from the people in the carriages, he probed every single person on the road.
Soon after, he noticed most of the people in the city were at the Mortal Stage. There were not many people at the Mortal Shedding Stage. The most powerful one was merely at the Intermediate Stage of the Mortal Shedding Stage.
On the other hand, the buildings and city model in Mound Hill City was vastly superior to the cities on Cloud Continent. It was an eye-opening experience for Duan Ling Tian. He was really glad he came here.
During the journey, the pedestrian would make way for the carriage Duan Ling Tian was riding in and looked at it respectfully whenever they passed through crowded places. It was as though they knew the people in the carriage were extraordinary.
As they traveled deep into Mound Hill City, the luxurious carriage Lin Qin Rong controlled finally came to a stop before a huge and luxurious estate.
‘Could this be the City Governor’s Estate of Mound Hill City?’ Duan Ling Tian speculated.
The estate’s entrance alone could accommodate a few of the carriages he was riding in. It was massive.
What surprised Duan Ling Tian even more was the armored guards standing in front of the estate entrance. He discovered they were all at the Intermediate Stage of the Mortal Shedding Stage through Divine Eye.
‘The Intermediate Stage of the Mortal Shedding Stage… They’re just guards standing at the estate entrance. This has to be the City Governor’s Estate of Mound Hill City.’ Duan Ling Tian was certain about this.
Although he had seen everything on Cloud Continent, he felt like a country bumpkin here.
Anyone at the Intermediate Stage of the Mortal Shedding Stage could rule the entire Cloud Continent and the Four Great Overseas Saint Lands… However, they were just entrance guards here.
‘My current cultivation base is even lower than an entrance guard.’ Duan Ling Tian mocked himself inwardly.
“This is our City Governor’s Estate of Mound Hill City… The City Governor Estate is the place with the most power in the entire Mound Hill City,” Lin Qin Rong said as he looked at both of them in the carriage, “I’ll put both of you in the Latent Dragon Camp after we enter. That’s where we train geniuses in the City Governor Estate.”
Latent Dragon Camp?
Duan Ling Tian and Guo Li’s eyes lit up in unison when they heard that.
Soon after, Lin Qing Rong continued to control the four-wheel carriage and enter the City Governor’s Estate… When their carriage passed through the entrance, the guards at the door bowed at them. It was obvious they recognized Lin Qing Rong’s carriage.
After entering the City Governor’s Estate, Duan Ling Tian discovered it was mind-blowingly big.
It was even bigger than the palaces on Cloud Continent.
When they entered the estate, Duan Ling Tian did not stop using Divine Eye. He discovered the people passing by were above the Mortal Shedding Stage.
He even saw some people at the Mastery Stage of the Mortal Shedding Stage. Soon after, Lin Qing Rong stopped the carriage and invited Duan Ling Tian and Guo Li to alight from the carriage.
Subsequently, he brought Duan Ling Tian and Guo Li and walked into a bamboo grove ahead.
When they entered the bamboo grove, they walked on a limestone path made for pedestrians. There was no one around at this moment.
As they walked on the path, Lin Qing Rong led Duan Ling Tian and Guo Li into a huge compound deep in Mound Hill Estate… Before they walked into the compound, Duan Ling Tian and Guo Li could not help but cover their noses. This was because they smelled a disgusting stench wafting out from inside. It was clearly the stench of urine.
‘Where the hell is this place?” Duan Ling Tian and Guo Li looked at each other and realized something was wrong. This place seemed to be the end of the City Governor’s Estate.
Could the Latent Dragon Camp be in there?
They did not dare to think any further when they thought about this.
Duan Ling Tian and Guo Li frowned at the stench of urine as they followed Lin Qing Rong into the compound.
It was a barren land with potholes all over the compound… It was a little absurd that such a place existed in the City Governor’s Estate of Mound Hill City. It was like a completely different world in here.
“Hmm?” Upon closer inspection, Duan Ling Tian noticed there were dilapidated cottages built on this barren land. They looked as though they were about to collapse at any given time.
Meanwhile, there was a high platform behind these cottages. There were also thirteen cottages built on the high platform. However, the thirteen cottages were brand new, and one could tell it was nice in there.
Most importantly, Duan Ling Tian discovered the source of the stench.
There was a long and narrow manure pit below the high platform. It was filled with feces, and it was enough to make someone throw up.
Duan Ling Tian was able to endure and adapt to the horrible environment quickly since he used to be in the Special Force and was a mercenary in his past life.
However, it was a different story for Guo Li. She was so disgusted that she began to throw up.
“This is the Latent Dragon Camp in the City Governor’s Estate. Master City Governor built it himself previously. This is where we train geniuses… This is where both of you are going to stay,” Lin Qing Rong said. He did not seem to notice Guo Li’s reaction.
Duan Ling Tian forced a smile on his face while Guo Li’s expression changed drastically, and she threw up even more.
Latent Dragon Camp?
This was the hellish place she was going to be staying at?
At this very moment, Guo Li thought about backing out… However, she dismissed that thought when she recalled she might be assassinated if she gave up on this opportunity and returned to Fuyu Town.
Meanwhile, Duan Ling Tian was still looking around.
He noticed that apart from the dilapidated cottages on the barren land filled with potholes and the brand new cottages on top of the high platform, there was a tall loft at the side of the platform as well.
“Haha… Qing Rong, you’re back?” Duan Ling Tian saw an old man walking out from the other side after he heard a hearty laugh. Two young men followed behind him.
The two young men frowned and covered their noses with their hands. It was obvious they were disgusted by the environment as well.
“Elder Liu,” Lin Qing Rong greeted the old man as soon as they met. It seemed like they were close.
“Oh? Are these the two the geniuses you brought back from Fuyu Town?” The old man asked with a smile as he looked at Duan Ling Tian and Guo Li.
The old man appeared indifferent, but the way he looked at Duan Ling Tian made him feel uneasy. Duan Ling Tian could not help but use Divine Eye on him.
Duan Ling Tian discovered this old man was just like Lin Qing Rong. He was also at the Paramount Stage of the Mortal Shedding Stage.
He was the second person at the Paramount Stage of the Mortal Shedding Stage that Duan Ling Tian saw since his arrival at the Dao Martial Saint Land… This person’s strength was on par with Lin Qing Rong.
“Guo Lin, this City Governor’s Estate of Mound Hill City… What rate is it?” Duan Ling Tian could not help but ask Guo Li through True Energy Voice Transmission.
At this moment, Guo Li was feeling a little better, and she replied through True Energy Voice Transmission after hearing Duan Ling Tian’s question, “The City Governor’s Estate of Mound Hill City is an eighth-rate force in the Dao Martial Saint Land.”
“There’s usually a Saint Rudiment Stage powerhouse guarding an eighth-rate force… Just like the Master Governor of the City Governor’s Estate of Mound Hill City. He’s at the Saint Rudiment Stage. Senior Lin’s at the Paramount Stage of the Mortal Shedding Stage,” Guo Li said, “Also, the City Governor’s Estate of Mound Hill City owns an eighth grade Saint Stones reserve.”
“Her name’s Guo Li. She’s a genius I brought from the Guo Clan of Fuyu Town… Don’t judge her just because she’s a lady. She’s No.1 among the younger generation in Fuyu Town,” Lin Qing Rong introduced Guo Li to the old man. He looked at Duan Ling Tian, and his smile turned even wider. “On the other hand, I met him during our journey… His name’s Duan Ling Tian. He comes from Mortal Continent.”
“Mortal Continent?” The old man was stunned when he heard Lin Qing Rong’s words. Even the two young men behind him were looking at Duan Ling Tian now.
“Judging by the quality of the people you selected and the fact that he came from Mortal Continent, I suppose he’s quite outstanding. Seems like you’ll receive a hefty reward from Master City Governor this time,” the old man said enviously.
Subsequently, he began to introduce the two young men behind him.
He introduced the young man in blue first. “His name’s Hu Jie. He’s a genius I found in Storm Town… He’s 28 years old this year, and his cultivation base is at the Intermediate Stage of the Mortal Shedding Stage.”
“This one’s called Zhu Lang. He’s also a genius from Storm Town. He’s 29 years old this year, and his cultivation base is also at the Intermediate Stage of the Mortal Shedding Stage.” The old man then looked at the other young man in green.
The old man looked proud when he introduced the two young men. He did not only announce their age but also their cultivation base…
They were both below thirty years old, but they were already at the Intermediate Stage of the Mortal Shedding Stage.
Such geniuses were the best of the best even in the border areas of Mound Hill City.
The young men, Hu Jie and Zhu Lang, who were frowning and covering their noses initially removed their hands from their noses when they noticed Guo Li had done so.
Although they still found the place disgusting and had thought about backing out, they decided to endure.
They did not want to embarrass themselves before a beauty like Guo Li.
