Chapter 1467: Old Prophet
Translator: EndlessFantasy Translation Editor: EndlessFantasy Translation
“Don’t worry, as long as Tian’er has the ability to open the jade box that I left for him, he’ll come to Dao Martial Saint Land without a doubt. I’ve already left him with a detailed address for him to find Elder Ku.” The young man was none other than Duan Ru Feng, Duan Ling Tian’s cheapskate father. Looking at his wife, he reassured, “When he has found Elder Ku, Elder Ku will bring him to see us immediately.”
“We should’ve brought him along with us that time,” Li Rou said regrettably.
“Rou’er, didn’t you agree with my decision last time? Believe me, with the three Dao Talismans that I left for him, along with the fact that he’s an extremely blessed person, he will come to Dao Martial Saint Land safely. Who knows? He might have already met Elder Ku already,” Duan Ru Feng replied.
That time, the reason he had left his son behind was that he hoped that his son would be able to grow up in the Mortal Continent step by step so that it could stir up his potential more.
If his son had already come with him to Dao Martial Saint Land long ago, his journey on the Martial Dao would have definitely been affected.
Which parent did not have great ambitions for their kids?
Therefore, Li Rou had wholeheartedly agreed with this without any doubts the moment she heard about the stakes from Duan Ru Feng.
“I hope so.” Li Rou was still slightly worried.
“A few years ago when I went out, I came across the Old Prophet by chance and asked him to read Tian’er’s future before…” Duan Ru Feng looked at Li Rou and smiled as he said. Before he could finish his sentence, she already interrupted him.
“You mean that Old Prophet who knows everything in the Heavens above and the Earth underneath who claims to be able to read God’s will?” Li Rou had been here in the Azure Cloud Mansion for a long time, so she had already heard that there was a Old Prophet in Dao Martial Saint Land who could read God’s will. However, his temper was extremely peculiar and he was only willing to tell the fortune for the people that he was fond of.
Otherwise, he would not give a damn at all no matter how powerful the force behind that person was.
“It’s him.” Duan Ru Feng nodded.
“I heard that other than having an eccentric temperament, he’ll also only tell the fortune for those he’s fond of. On top of that, even if he only tells the fortune of those that he’s fond of, he’ll usually only tell it to that person-in-concern. Why would he be willing to tell Tian’er’s fortune all of a sudden?” Li Rou asked in suspicion.
“I have no idea why… Not only that, but I also couldn’t even recognize him at first and he was the one who took the initiative to look for me.” When Duan Ru Feng answered, his face looked strange too.
“He was the one who took the initiative to look for you?” Li Rou was stunned. Although her husband was the Mansion Master of the Azure Cloud Mansion, it was still not enough for that Old Prophet to suck up to him, was it?
Not only that, but Li Rou had also heard of the rumor that a leader from a force that was equally matched with the Azure Cloud Mansion had gone to the Old Prophet to ask him to tell his fortune but had been rejected by him instead.
Therefore, he did not think that it was because of her husband’s identity that the Old Prophet took up the initiative to find him.
There must be some secret that he was hiding.
“I also felt kinda weird as well, but he kept talking about how God’s plan isn’t something that could be revealed to the mortals… Besides, after I asked him to tell Tian’er’s fortune the moment I was certain his identity, he did not reject me and straightaway agreed to it,” Duan Ru Feng replied, “He said that Tian’er is a greatly blessed person and in the future, he’ll definitely surpass me! He also said that it was a good thing that I didn’t bring Tian’er with me straight to Dao Martial Saint Land. Otherwise, I’d have caused Tian’er to lose his great opportunity.”
“What great opportunity?” Li Rou was perplexed.
“I’ve also asked him the same thing but he said he had no idea.” Duan Ru Feng smiled wryly.
“Is it another God’s plan that can’t be revealed?” Li Rou raised his brows. “Brother Feng, the Old Prophet whom you came across isn’t a fake, is he?”
“Well, he didn’t say that the great opportunity that Tian’er would come across is a plan of God that can’t be revealed. He just said that even he didn’t know what that is actually. He only knows that it was a great opportunity. That’s all. From his words, the great opportunity that Tian’er will meet has already surpassed the range that he could predict.” As Duan Ru Feng shared more, astonishment could be seen even on his face as well.
After all, that was his son. The bigger the opportunity that he came across, the bigger his accomplishment would be. Of course, he as the father, would be even prouder.
If it were not for the fact that he wished his son to succeed, he would not have left his son behind at the Cloud Continent in the first place.
Looking back at it, the decision he had made last time was correct.
If he had brought his son to Dao Martial Saint Land, he would have caused his son to miss that great opportunity.
“As for the identity of that Old Prophet, I’ve double checked many times and he’s definitely not fake!” Duan Ru Feng was absolutely certain about this.
“If he really was the Old Prophet, then I guess the things that he said must be true… A great opportunity that even the Old Prophet could not predict. Looks like Tian’er must have obtained a one-of-a-kind opportunity in the Cloud Continent.” A rare smile crept upon Li Rou’s face.
“Haha… Of course, my, Duan Ru Feng’s, son would be a person who is greatly blessed! As the saying goes, ‘like father, like son’, right?” Duan Ru Feng laughed as he remarked.
“Do you actually have the audacity to mention your opportunity? Till now, every time I recall that incident that you said, I still can’t help but break out into a cold sweat for you. If it hadn’t been for the scattering of that Devil Cultivator’s soul, you’d most likely still not able to fully master the ownership of your body now,” Li Rou snapped.
Upon hearing that, Duan Ru Feng smiled awkwardly and had no words to refute.
“How’s Jing Ru and our two other future daughters-in-law?” When Li Rou recalled the three girls who came together with them, she asked.
“Among the three of them, other than Jing Ru whose natural endowment is slightly trailing behind, Bi Yao and Xiao Lan’s innate talents are pretty good. In just a maximum of one more year, Bi Yao and Xiao Lan’s cultivation base will make another breakthrough again.” Duan Ru Feng chuckled.
“That’s great.” When Li Rou mentioned Bi Yao and Xiao Lan, her face was filled with a smile as well. They were her two future daughters-in-law after all. Besides that, they had a great personality and they were fully smitten by her son as well.
So many years had gone by but they did not have a change of heart at all.
This was very similar to her situation and such a social opportunity was very hard to come by.
“Rou’er, as far as I know, the two daughters-in-law have not fully acknowledged by Tian’er, have they? As for the two other daughters-in-law of whom I’ve never even seen before, is it really okay for me to not send somebody to bring them to the Azure Cloud Mansion?” Duan Ru Feng asked.
“It’s better to leave Ke’er and Fei’er in the Cloud Continent for them to accompany Tian’er. If we kidnap all four of our daughters-in-law, don’t you think Tian’er would hate you to his bones?” Upon mentioning the two future daughters-in-law, Li Rou’s smile on her face never ceased.
One could imagine that if Duan Ling Tian was there, he would feel an inexplicable sense of astonishment if he heard the exchange between his parents.
The Old Prophet?
Did he say that he would have a great blessed opportunity that even he could not predict what that was?
If he had followed his father to the Cloud Continent and come to Dao Martial Saint Land, he would not have met the great blessed opportunity, would he?
Was that not the Seven Treasures Exquisite Pagoda?
If he had followed his father to Dao Martial Saint Land in the first place, he would not have gone to the Overseas Saint Island and he would have never met the Seven Treasures Exquisite Pagoda.
It was all going according to God’s plans.
Of course, Duan Ru Feng and his wife, Li Rou, had no idea that their son had already come to Dao Martial Saint Land since more than a year ago.
Unfortunately, because the voice transmission jade slip inside the exquisite jade box had been damaged, Duan Ling Tian had no idea where to meet with the person whom his dad had arranged.
They did not even know that they were going to become grandparents soon.
Just like Duan Ru Feng and Li Rou who were completely clueless, Duan Ling Tian also did not know that his father was actually the Mansion Master of the Azure Cloud Mansion, a powerful force in Dao Martial Saint Land. The power of the Azure Cloud Mansion was even greater than the Greenwave Han Mansion behind Han Xue Nai.
Right now, Duan Ling Tian was standing obediently at the Moon Illumination Sect’s outer court district on the second level of the Seven Treasures Exquisite Pagoda inside the room in his own stand-alone little courtyard.
“My cultivation base has made another progress in three months. I’m a step closer to the Paramount Mortal Shedding Stage now!” Duan Ling Tian, who had stayed on the second level of the Seven Treasures Exquisite Pagoda for three months, was very satisfied with the results in. “Furthermore, I’ve successfully cultivated the technique in the Saint Grade Martial Tactic Golden Shirt to the fourth level, the Proficient Stage, as well. Not only that, but I’ve also successfully cultivated the technique in the Saint Grade Martial Tactic, the Gargantuan Taishan, to the first stage, the Fundamental Awareness Stage too.”
To Duan Ling Tian, the progress that he had made in this three months time was huge.
Of course, even though he had cultivated the Saint Grade Martial Tactic: the Golden Roc Mass Tactic, he did not forget to cultivate the Colossal Aerolite Arrow as well.
However, the techniques that he mainly cultivated in the Colossal Aerolite Arrow were the Aerolite Strike and the Body and Arrow Synchronization. He had now cultivated these two main techniques to a certain level and he would need to spend a great effort if he wanted to raise them even higher.
Of course, the progress that he made in the time that he managed to squeeze out in the span of these three months to cultivate was not particularly ridiculous.
The reason the Golden Shirt was able to have such huge progress was that Duan Ling Tian’s body was originally monstrous, causing the golden Shirt’s cultivation speed to become monstrous too.
Three months inside the second level of the Seven Treasures Exquisite Pagoda was equal to one month outside.
After a month, Duan Ling Tian walked out of his room to breathe some fresh air.
However, the moment he opened his door, he noticed a duel invitation falling down right away, “Has another person issued a duel invitation to me?”
Duan Ling Tian frowned but still managed to catch the invitation in his hand.
The moment he opened the invitation, he noticed that it was just an ordinary duel invitation. The person who issued the duel invitation was called He Zhong.
“He Zhong? Isn’t he the person who is ranked third on the outer court rankings? His ranking in the Earth Rankings was much higher than Feng Fan’s. I think he’s a powerhouse who’s at the peak of the Mortal Shedding Stage and is ranked 66th in the Earth Rankings.” It had been quite some time since he came to the Moon Illumination Sect’s outer sect, so he had already gained some understanding about the other four Moon Illumination Sect outer court disciples who were ranked in the Earth Rankings.
Therefore, the moment he saw the name ‘He Zhong’ on the duel invitation, he instantly knew who he was.
“Since it’s not a Death Duel invitation, he mustn’t be Liu Huan’s man then.” With a jolt in his heart, Duan Ling Tian speculated in his heart, “Perhaps, he just wants to battle it out with me after hearing how I defeated Feng Fan to see who is better. That’s all.”
The moment Duan Ling Tian thought about this, his frown eased up right away.
After placing his fingerprint on the duel invitation, he walked out of the courtyard.
When he walked out, he noticed many gazes looked at him instantly. Each and every one of them was looking at him with anticipation as though they were waiting for something.
“Looks like many people know about the fact that He Zhong has issued a duel invitation to me,” Duan Ling Tian thought to himself.
At once, in front of the group of outer court disciples outside, he announced that he was going to accept He Zhong’s invitation and let him pick a time.
