The people in the Lower Province of the Dao Martial Saint Land did not expect the Devilseal Tablet in Duan Ling Tian's possession would be s.n.a.t.c.hed away by a powerhouse from the Upper Province so soon after they learned he was the one who possessed the Devilseal Tablet and was also the Young Mansion Master of Azure Cloud Mansion.
"If the Young Mansion Master of Azure Cloud Mansion did not reveal his ident.i.ty, he wouldn't be targeted by the powerhouse from the Upper Province and the Devilseal Tablet would still remain in his possession," many people mused.
"His ident.i.ty was bound to be exposed the moment he decided to fulfill the five-year pact with the dragon clan. However, the chance to enter the dragon clan's Saint Land, the Dragon Cleansing Pool, doesn't seem worth it in exchange for losing the Devilseal Tablet!"
"That's right! If I were him, I'd rather forfeit the five-year pact and keep the Devilseal Tablet!"
"Who knows? The Young Mansion Master of Azure Cloud Mansion might be regretting his decision as well!"
Almost the entire Lower Province of the Dao Martial Saint Land was in a commotion. Their discussions were all about Duan Ling Tian.
Naturally, the Mountainshade Black Market and dragon clan had also received news of this as well.
"It's s.n.a.t.c.hed away so quickly?" When Leader Dugu from Mountainshade Black Market heard about this, he was a little surprised. He was not surprised it was s.n.a.t.c.hed away, but he was surprised by how quickly it was s.n.a.t.c.hed away.
At that time, when Duan Ling Tian fulfilled the five-year pact and revealed his ident.i.ty, he knew the Devilseal Tablet would not remain in Duan Ling Tian's possession for long. Due to this reason, he did not covet the Devilseal Tablet since he knew very well he would not be able to protect it!
Faced with those powerhouses from the Upper Province, even he, the Leader of Mountainshade Black Market, who was widely acknowledged as one of the two strongest men in the Lower Province of the Dao Martial Saint Land, was not worthy in comparison.
"He deserves it!" In the dragon clan, apart from Clan Leader Di Shan who remained quiet, the group of Five-clawed Divine Dragons, including the Enforcement Elder Xue Chan, took pleasure in Duan Ling Tian's misfortune.
They hated the young man who had killed the future Clan Leader of their dragon clan and obtained the chance to enter their dragon clan's Saint Land, the Dragon Cleansing Pool. How they wished he would be killed when the Devilseal Tablet was taken away from him!
"Duan Ling Tian had met with a kind powerhouse from the Upper Province!"
"That's right! Otherwise, he wouldn't have been able to live!"
"Perhaps, he lowered himself and begged for forgiveness from the powerhouse from the Upper Province before he handed the Devilseal Tablet over with both his hands?"
The group of Five-clawed Divine Dragon's elders discussed among themselves, mocking Duan Ling Tian.
The news continued to spread further and further away before almost the entire Lower Province of Dao Martial Saint Land had heard about the matter.
In the far away sixth-rate Saint Nation, the Windfall Nation, it had been a while since news of Duan Ling Tian being the Young Mansion Master of Azure Cloud Mansion and the Devilseal Tablet being in his possession had spread there. However, visitors still swarmed to the courtyard of the Situ Clan.
Everyone, including the members of the Windfall Nation's Imperial Family, had come to visit one after another.
Naturally, they were not there to visit the Clan Leader of Situ Clan or the high-ranking officials there. Instead, they came to visit Duan Ling Tian's family and friends such as Bai Li Hong, Feng Wu Dao, and the others.
They had spent the entire day entertaining visitors that they were only free when evening came. All of them were extremely tired. They had been entertaining visitors for several days now.
Nangong Yi stretched his limbs. After a while, he could not help but complain, "Duan Ling Tian
is really something! He always surprises us in different ways! Not only did his cultivation base enter the Divine Saint Stage, but even news of him killing Di Jue who was at the Exemplary Saint Stage and him being the Young Mansion Master of Azure Cloud Mansion had spread here."
"We should be happy for Duan Ling Tian that his cultivation base has broken through to the Divine Saint Stage and he's the Young Mansion Master of Azure Cloud Mansion," Nangong Chen said as he glanced at Nangong Yi indifferently.
Currently, Nangong Chen had changed. He was no longer aloof and unapproachable. At the very least, he would not have said such words in the past.
"Nangong Chen is right! We should be happy for Duan Ling Tian! Nangong Yi, if you think this is too tiring, you can always excuse yourself from entertaining the guest from tomorrow onward," Chen Shao Shuai told Nangong Yi.
"I merely blurted out whatever was on my mind." Nangong Yi shot Chen Shao Shuai a dirty look before he sighed again. "Until now, I still feel a little surreal. I can accept the breakthrough in his cultivation base since he's originally a monstrous freak. I don't find it shocking that he has entered the Divine Saint Stage. However, how did his ident.i.ty undergo such a big change? The Young Mansion Master of Azure Cloud Mansion? What kind of force is the Azure Cloud Mansion? It's one of the two strongest forces in the Lower Province of the Dao Martial Saint Land!" When Nangong Yi reached the end of his sentence, his voice even trembled a little. Up until now, he felt as though everything was a dream.
In his opinion, Duan Ling Tian was just too ridiculous to the point he did not dare to believe some of the things he heard.
"I've not heard him say his father is the Mansion Master of Azure Cloud Mansion." Chen Shao Shuai smiled wryly.
"Perhaps, he didn't even know his father is the Mansion Master of Azure Cloud Mansion previously. Didn't you hear him say that one of the reasons he came to the Dao Martial Saint Land was to look for his parents?" Nangong Yi added again, "I'm really curious what kind of expression he had when he discovered his father is the Mansion Master of Azure Cloud Mansion. The Azure Cloud Mansion is not an ordinary force but one of the two strongest forces in the Lower Province of the Dao Martial Saint Land!"
"Now that Little Tian has killed Di Jue, it can be considered that he has avenged the members of Ling Tian Sect who had died. They can finally rest in peace." Feng Wu Dao sighed.
The moment these words left his mouth, the place fell silent.
Di Jue whom Duan Ling Tian had killed during the five-year pact was the Five-clawed Dragon who had annihilated Ling Tian Sect on Half Moon Island! At that time, Di Jue had almost killed them as well.
"Perhaps, it didn't even cross Di Jue's mind that the young man whom he regarded as an ant would kill be able to kill him after only five years!" Xiong Quan said as his eyes shone.
When he spoke, an expression of admiration appeared on his face.
"Duan Ling Tian's innate talent can't be deduced by normal logic. However, it's indeed amazing that he killed Di Jue!" Nangong Yi chuckled.
"What? You're not going to complain anymore about having to entertain guests due to Duan Ling Tian?" Chen Shao Shuai said mockingly.
Nangong Yi only rolled his eyes in response.
"Will Junior Brother be in danger?" Unlike Chen Shao Shuai and the others, Bai Li Hong had given more thought to the matter. "After all, since he has fulfilled the five-year pact, his ident.i.ty has been exposed! I'm afraid, as of this moment, most people from the Lower Province have already learned that the Devilseal Tablet is in his possession. The Devilseal Tablet is a famous Super Saint Weapon on the Ten Great Saint Weapons Ranking. Even powerhouses from the Upper Province would covet it. Even the Azure Cloud Mansion might not be able to protect the Devilseal Tablet in his possession!"
His expression was grave when he spoke. Feng Wu Dao and the others found it a little strange.
However, when Bai Li Hong finished speaking, they all gasped one after another. "I didn't think of this at all. Now that you mentioned it, Elder Bai Li, Duan Ling Tian might be in danger!"
"It might be fine if he hands over the Devilseal Tablet in exchange for his life if a powerhouse from the Upper Province comes. However, with Duan Ling Tian's personality, I'm worried he won't give in easily and he might anger the powerhouse from the Upper Province and get killed!"
"Duan Ling Tian is wise. I'm sure he has already thought about this. I only hope he can escape in time before the powerhouses from the Upper Province arrive."
At once, everyone, including Bai Li Hong, began to worry about Duan Ling Tian. When they thought about Duan Ling Tian's situation, they felt afraid for him.
In the next two days, they continued to entertain visitors as usual.
However, on the third day, they received news about what had happened. All of them were horrified.
"A powerhouse from the Upper Province went to the Azure Cloud Mansion and forcefully s.n.a.t.c.hed the Devilseal Tablet away from Duan Ling Tian? Is he alright?"
What they were worried about had finally happened.
"He's okay? It's fine as long as he's okay! It's good enough that he's fine." However, when they learned that Duan Ling Tian was unharmed, they sighed in relief.
Compared to the Devilseal Tablet, they were, naturally, worried about Duan Ling Tian's safety.
"What are you guys talking about?" At that moment when Bai Li Hong and the others sighed in relief, a voice suddenly sounded. It seemed as though it came from every direction, causing them to be unable to pinpoint where the voice came from.
However, they found the voice to be familiar.
Before they could react, three people had appeared before their eyes. Two people were standing side by side with a little boy in tow.
They were very familiar with the two people standing next to each other.

"Duan Ling Tian!"
When they saw the appearance of the young man, everyone's eyes lit up immediately. They were all pleasantly surprised.
They did not expect the young man they were worrying over just a moment ago would appear before them, causing them to sigh in relief all over again.
Hearing that Duan Ling Tian was unharmed and seeing with their own eyes that he was unharmed were two different matters!
"Is everyone fine?" Duan Ling Tian asked with a smile.
Meanwhile, Li Fei who was standing next to Duan Ling Tian and holding a six or seven-year-old little boy nodded at Bai Li Hong and the others as a greeting.
She knew all of them except for Bai Li Hong.
"Duan Ling Tian, how did you find Miss Fei'er?" When Nangong Yi saw Li Fei standing by Duan Ling Tian's side, he could not help but feel shocked.
