Chapter 4154: Succeeding By a Stroke of Luck
Translator: EndlessFantasy Translation Editor: EndlessFantasy Translation
Everyone present was not blind.
Under the circumstances earlier, not only did the purple-clad young man survive, but he was also able to save another rudimentary Emperor of Gods. This alone was enough to show that he was far stronger than what was shown on the surface. Although he had just become a rudimentary Emperor of Gods, he was not any weaker than an intermediate Emperor of Gods.
Among the people present on the scene, only Wu Xiang Qian from the Divine Spirit Mansion’s Wu clan and Liu Wu You, whom Duan Ling Tian saved, were not surprised by Duan Ling Tian’s strength.
Liu Wu You had witnessed Duan Ling Tian’s strength in the past. When Duan Ling Tian was just an advanced Lord of Gods, he was already capable of subduing her, a rudimentary Emperor of Gods. Now that he was a rudimentary Emperor of Gods, it was only natural that he had grown stronger.
As for Wu Xiang Qian…
Everyone assumed that apart from Duan Ling Tian, Wu Xiang Qian was the first to arrive when the emperor-grade secret realm appeared. No one but Wu Xiang Qian knew Tan Wu, an intermediate Emperor of Gods, was the first to arrive, but Tan Wu was killed by Duan Ling Tian after he provoked Duan Ling Tian.
At this time, the only other female cultivator apart from Liu Wu You, an old woman, scoffed. She looked at Duan Ling Tian with a hostile gaze as she said pointedly, “You’re a rudimentary Emperor of Gods, but you’re not any weaker than an intermediate Emperor of Gods. My friend was indirectly killed by you. Shouldn’t you give me an explanation?”
The old woman’s friend was the old man, a rudimentary Emperor of Gods, who had arrived after Wu Xiang Qian. Similar to the other rudimentary Emperor of Gods, he did not survive the disaster.
Due to Duan Ling Tian’s extraordinary strength, the old woman only dared to say such words. If it were not for his apparent strength, she would have directly attacked Duan Ling Tian. In fact, she only dared to say such words because she knew very well that everyone, except for Liu Wu You whom Duan Ling Tian saved, resented Duan Ling Tian for his earlier action that brought about a disaster.
Duan Ling Tian remained calm when faced with the old woman’s hostility. He said, “It’s my first time entering an emperor-grade secret realm so I didn’t know there’s such a rule. Moreover, I was the one who brought forth the secret realm. I didn’t force your friend to enter this place, did I? Those who come in should know about the risks. It’s not like I wasn’t targeted earlier. I’m also a victim. It doesn’t make sense for you to imply that I did it intentionally. Isn’t that just seeking death? I don’t have a death wish.”
The old woman’s expression soured since she could not refute Duan Ling Tian’s words.
At the same time, Zhong Bai Nan looked at Duan Ling Tian icily and said threateningly, “You better not do something like that again.”
In fact, the disaster earlier only surprised Zhong Bai Nan slightly. He did not suffer any loss at all.
Meanwhile, the two people behind Mo Wen Dao’s reactions were more drastic. Their gazes were incredibly icy when they looked at Duan Ling Tian. Most of the rudimentary Emperors of Gods who were indirectly killed by Duan Ling Tian were from the Divine Spirit Mansion and were invited by them.
Mo Wen Dao was upset as well, but as the Mansion Master of the Divine Spirit Mansion, he was naturally skilled at concealing his emotions. Moreover, this was Duan Ling Tian’s emperor-grade secret realm so he would seem petty if he showed his hostility to Duan Ling Tian now. Most importantly, in his eyes, Duan Ling Tian was already a dead person. With everyone gathered here, it was impossible for Duan Ling Tian to survive even if he was not weaker than the average intermediate Emperor of Gods.As such, there was no need for him to openly show his hostility.
At this time, Duan Ling Tian glanced at Liu Wu You before he asked through Voice Transmission, “I’m planning to separate from everyone. Do you want to leave with me?”
Since they could not easily use their Divine Consciousness here, Duan Ling Tian was not worried that someone would eavesdrop on their Voice Transmission.
Upon hearing Duan Ling Tian’s question, Liu Wu You instinctively replied, “Yes.”
She was still in shock. After all, she nearly died earlier. She would be dead if it were not for Duan Ling Tian.
Almost as soon as Liu Wu You replied, Duan Ling Tian brought her with him before he teleported twice consecutively.
In fact, the others had already lost sight of Duan Ling Tian the first time teleported. However, the three advanced Emperors of Gods were still tracking his aura after he teleported for the first time. As such, their expressions remained calm even after he teleported away. In the next moment, their expressions changed drastically when they suddenly lost track of his aura after he teleported the second time.
Wu Ping exclaimed inwardly, ‘Double Teleportation Profundity?!’
Zhong Bai Nan and Mo Wen Dao wore shocked expressions on their faces as well. They did not expect that a rudimentary Emperor of Gods, no matter how talented, had comprehended the Double Teleportation Profundity from the law of space.
‘No wonder his reaction and speed were so fast…’
The trio finally realized why Duan Ling Tian and Liu Wu You, whom he had saved, were the only rudimentary Emperors of Gods who survived.
Zhong Bai Nan looked at Wu Xiang Qian and the other person from the Wu clan as he said, “Since he has a death wish, there’s no need to stop him… Both of you can follow me after this.”
The duo naturally did not have any objections. They felt rather helpless at this moment. After all, they did not expect to be transported to the same place in the emperor-grade secret realm. This meant that the competition would be even fiercer. Moreover, they also did not dare to wander around recklessly. It was easier to die in this kind of emperor-grade secret realm if they were to travel alone. At this time, their chances of survival were higher if they stayed in a group. This was also the reason Zhong Bai Nan said that Duan Ling Tian had a death wish.
Similarly, Wu Ping told the three intermediate Emperors of Gods, whom he invited, to follow him closely and not to wander around recklessly.
As for Mo Wen Dao, he did not need to say anything. The two intermediate Emperors of Gods who came with him did not leave his side at all. The disaster had struck so suddenly earlier, and the other rudimentary Emperors of Gods were too far away. Otherwise, with Mo Wen Dao’s strength, it would have been easy for him to protect everyone.
On the contrary, the old woman, the only female intermediate Emperor of Gods here, wore a sour expression on her face. After all, she was the only one without a companion now that the old man, who invited her here, was dead. She knew that if she was in danger, the three advanced Emperors of Gods would not help her.
The old woman took a deep breath and adjusted her expression before she looked at Mo Wen Dao and said, “Mansion Master, I’ll take my leave now to search for fortuitous encounters.”
Following that, the old woman made a move to leave. However, just as she made a move, while she was still in Mo Wen Dao’s sight, an overwhelming force surged from the void toward her. Subsequently, her aura vanished.
Upon seeing this, the expressions of everyone, including the three advanced Emperors of Gods, turned solemn.
After a moment, several intermediate Emperors of Gods whispered among themselves.
“It seems like that purple-clad young man and Liu Wu You have perished as well…”
At the same time, not far away, two figures were hiding and looking at the place where the female intermediate Emperor of Gods had died.
Duan Ling Tian took the lead to say to the woman next to him, “We… We seem to be quite lucky…”
Upon hearing Duan Ling Tian’s words, Liu Wu You glared at Duan Ling Tian and said, “Don’t you know that in this kind of secret realm where everyone’s gathered at the same place, only the person who brought forth the secret realm can travel safely alone? And yet, you brought me with you.”
In the past, Liu Wu You had obtained an ancient book by chance. There was information about this kind of emperor-grade secret realm in the book that not many people knew about.
Duan Ling Tian was briefly stunned by her words. Then, he said with a wry smile, “I really didn’t know.”
Duan Ling Tian had assumed she had followed him because she trusted him. However, that was clearly not the case.
In fact, Liu Wu You had instinctively responded to Duan Ling Tian earlier. Moreover, after he saved her, she also subconsciously trusted him. Most importantly, she only remembered this important piece of information after he had taken her away.
When Liu Wu You heard Duan Ling Tian’s words, she thought he was teasing her. Although Duan Ling Tian possessed You Wen Feng, her former boy toy, in her opinion, Duan Ling Tian must have been a Supreme God in the past. She did not believe in coincidences, after all. As such, how could Duan Ling Tian not know about this kind of emperor-grade secret realm? In her opinion, it would have been weird if Duan Ling Tian did not know about it.
Liu Wu You assumed Duan Ling Tian would bring her away after watching the ‘play’ and look for fortuitous encounters. Contrary to her expectations, Duan Ling Tian continued to follow Mo Wen Dao and the others.
“You’re planning to follow them?”
At this time, the three advanced Emperors of Gods led the others to explore the emperor-grade secret realm.
“Let’s see what the situation is like first… I’m not familiar with this place, after all,” Duan Ling Tian said, “Moreover, we might benefit from following them…”
Liu Wu You was rendered speechless by Duan Ling Tian’s words. After a moment, she tried to dissuade him. “It doesn’t make sense for you to do this… Even if they encounter something good, we won’t be able to get a share of it. You’re not thinking about stealing from three advanced Emperors of Gods, are you?”
Liu Wu You naturally thought Duan Ling Tian’s plan was very unrealistic.
On the other hand, Duan Ling Tian only smiled and did not speak again. He continued to silently follow the group of people in front.
Since no one dared to use their Divine Consciousness, they naturally did not discover that they were being followed by Duan Ling Tian and Liu Wu You.
Liu Wu You wore a helpless expression on her beautiful face as she followed Duan Ling Tian. She really did not want to follow him, but she had no choice. If she left him now, her fate would be similar to that of the old woman. In the end, she could only comfort herself inwardly, ‘Let’s just follow him for now. Once he sees that he can’t get a share of whatever they find, he’ll naturally stop following them…’
