Chapter 3530: The Meeting
After the father and daughter fully comprehended the law of time, Duan Ling Tian brought Duan Si Ling back to his Little World. Before Duan Si Ling entered his Little World, he had also told her not to cultivate immediately since he wanted to introduce everyone to his master, Feng Qing Yang, who was also the Heavenly Emperor of the Solitary Destructive Heaven.
Following that, he sent a message to Feng Qing Yang, and Feng Qing Yang came to bring him away.
When they left the tunnel, Feng Qing Yang said, “After this, you can cultivate in the place I used to stay. Consume the Exploding Element Celestial Fruit and focus on becoming a Ten Directions Celestial Emperor. With the Celestial Fruit and the relatively superior cultivation environment here, your speed will double… Although Meng Luo didn’t stay for long at that place, he had made good progress there as well…”
Since Duan Ling Tian was not stopped from comprehending the law of time, Feng Qing Yang was sure Duan Ling Tian would not be ejected from the next place as well.
Upon hearing these words, Duan Ling Tian shook his head and said, “Master, there’s no need for that. Let’s return to the Heavenly Palace of the Solitary Destructive Heaven. I want to introduce my family and friends to you. After that, I’ll enter closed-door cultivation.”
After Duan Ling Tian finished speaking, he saw a slight frown on Feng Qing Yang’s face. He knew Feng Qing Yang’s intention was good and wanted him to make use of the superior cultivation environment here. Therefore, he explained, “Master, I have a place where the cultivation environment is comparable to a Realm of Gods…”
Duan Ling Tian did not go into details. It was not that he did not trust his master; it was just that the fewer people who knew about it, the better it would be. Nevertheless, if his master took the initiative to ask him about it, he definitely would not lie.
As Duan Ling Tian expected, although Feng Qing Yang seemed slightly surprised, he did not ask any more questions. “Alright. In that case, let’s return to the Heavenly Palace of the Solitary Destructive Heaven. As your master, it’s about time that I meet your family and friends…”
From the moment Duan Ling Tian met Feng Qing Yang until now, Feng Qing Yang had never pressed for answers unnecessarily. This was a sign of his trust and faith in Duan Ling Tian.
After leaving the Asura Hell through a Transportation Formation, Feng Qing Yang and Duan Ling Tian were transported to a Devata Realm that was neither the Solitary Destructive Heaven nor the Primeval Heaven.
The duo rushed to the closest transportation site and returned to the Solitary Destructive Heaven.
In the main hall of the Heavenly Palace of the Solitary Destructive Heaven.
Feng Qing Yang stood on a dais in the hall, where he usually received guests, while Duan Ling Tian stood a step below him.
At the same time, Elder Huo, who was dressed in a flaming red robe, stood at the entrance as though he was guarding the hall.
At this moment…
Swoosh! Swoosh! Swoosh! Swoosh! Swoosh!
As soon as Duan Ling Tian opened his Little World, several figures began to materialize in the hall.
Duan Ling Tian’s parents; Li Rou and Duan Ru Feng, his wife; Li Fei, and the others showed up one after another.
“Master, this is my father. Father, this is…”
“Father, mother, Little Fei’er, Si Ling, Nian Tian… This is my master, Feng Qing Yang, the Heavenly Emperor of the Solitary Destructive Heaven.”
After everyone appeared, Duan Ling Tian patiently introduced them to Feng Qing Yang.
A gentle smile could be seen on Feng Qing Yang’s face as well. He greeted Duan Ru Feng and the others warmly. As the saying went, ‘One’s love will usually extend to everything about the person they love’.
Although Duan Ling Tian had spoken about Feng Qing Yang to his family and friends many times in the past, it was their first time meeting Feng Qing Yang. During their short stay in the Divine Offering Land, they had met several powerful gods. Perhaps, it was due to their experience that they were slightly ill at ease when faced with Feng Qing Yang.
“Greetings, Lord Heavenly Emperor,” Duan Ru Feng finally took the lead to say.
Before the others could greet him, Feng Qing Yang said with a smile, “Brother Duan, your son is my only true disciple. There’s no need for you to be so formal with me; it’ll only create distance between us. You can just treat me like you would a good brother…”
“Alright, Brother Feng.” Duan Ru Feng agreed easily. He was a straightforward person; since Feng Qing Yang had already said so, he did not think too much about it.
Following that, Li Rou said, “Greetings, Brother Feng. I’m Li Rou.”
“Greetings, master.” Li Fei bowed at Feng Qing Yang respectfully. She had long heard about the Heavenly Emperor of the Solitary Destructive Heaven. She knew he was even more remarkable than her grandmaster who was also the Heavenly Emperor of a Devata Realm.
Duan Nian Tian and Duan Si Ling bowed and said in unison, “Greetings, grandmaster.”
“Greetings, Lord Heavenly Emperor.” Feng Wu Dao did not address Feng Qing Yang as Duan Ru Feng did. After all, his daughter’s status was a little awkward; she had yet to marry Duan Ling Tian after all.
Feng Qing Yang chuckled and said, “It’s fine. Please just address me as Brother Duan did. I’m aware of your daughter’s relationship with my disciple.” Then, he turned around and asked, “Are you Tian Wu? You can address me as master as well. Moreover, we can be considered a family since you’re also part of the Seven Absolutes Sect in the mundane realm.”
Feng Qing Yang had learned about many things from Elder Huo before he had even met Duan Ling Tian. Hence, he was privy to many matters.
“What about us? How should we address you?” Little Gold, who was usually loud and carefree, asked reservedly.
“You must be Little Gold, right?” Feng Qing Yang looked at Little Gold before shifting his gaze to Little White and Little Black. “The three of you can address me as Junior Uncle Feng…”
Little Gold, Little White, and Little Black bowed in unison. “Greetings, Junior Uncle Feng.”
Subsequently, Feng Qing Yang shifted his attention to Mu Yi Yi. “So she’s Mu Yi Yi, the successor of the Second Absolute, the Prophet Progeny?”
Upon sensing Feng Qing Yang’s gaze on her, Mu Yi Yi grew anxious. “You… I…”
Duan Ling Tian sighed. “That’s right. She’s Junior Sister Mu Yi Yi.”
With that, Feng Qing Yang extended his Divine Consciousness into Mu Yi Yi’s mind. After a short moment, he shook his head and said, “Her soul’s fragmented. This is quite troublesome. However, I’ve heard there are items in the Realms of Gods that can restore one’s soul. Nevertheless, even if we successfully restore her soul, she’ll likely forget many things in the past…”
“Items that can restore her soul?” Duan Ling Tian’s eyes brightened and a hint of anticipation could be seen on his face upon hearing these words. Even if Mu Yi Yi would lose her memories, it was good enough if they could restore her soul. At least, she would not have to live with the mentality of a child forever.
“There are merely things I’ve heard. To verify it, we’ll have to find out more when we go to the Realms of Gods or ask a native…” Feng Qing Yang said.
“I’ll speak to Ling Jue Yun!” Duan Ling Tian said. He was rather anxious and did not waste any time before he bade everyone farewell and made his way to the Primeval Heaven through the Transportation Formation in the Heavenly Palace of the Solitary Destructive Heaven.
As soon as Duan Ling Tian arrived in the Primeval Heaven, he hurriedly sent a message to Ling Jue Yun.
After responding to Duan Ling Tian, Ling Jue Yun asked in confusion, “Did you come all the way here just to ask me this question? You could’ve asked Sister Huang’er, you know?”
“Sister Huang’er…” Duan Ling Tian was briefly stunned. Then, he said with a wry smile, “I forgot about that since I was too excited. By the way, has the Battle of the Geniuses ended?”
“It ended a few months ago,” Ling Jue Yun replied before he asked, “When do you plan to head to the Title Temple’s chamber of laws?”
“Most likely in a few months’ time. What about you?” Duan Ling Tian asked.
“I’ll be heading there in a few days’ time…” Ling Jue Yun replied.
The duo chatted briefly before bidding each other farewell.
With that, Duan Ling Tian left the Primeval Heaven and returned to the Heavenly Palace of the Solitary Destructive Heaven again. All in all, it took him only about 15 minutes.
When Duan Ling Tian returned, he discovered Li Fei, Feng Tian Wu, Little Black, Little Gold, and Little White were holding an ornate box each.
“What are these boxes?” Duan Ling Tian asked curiously.
“Father, these are gifts from grandmaster…” Duan Si Ling replied with a smile.
Duan Ling Tian smiled as he turned around to thank Feng Qing Yang.
However, before he could speak, Feng Qing Yang said, “These are just small gifts. There’s no need to be so polite…”
‘Small gifts?’ Duan Ling Tian smiled helplessly. How could his master’s gifts be insignificant? He knew they had to be precious.
Feng Qing Yang continued to say with a smile, “I’ll prepare a place for all of you in the Heavenly Palace. You can cultivate or relax there as you wish. It must be suffocating having to stay in Little Tian’s Little World all the time…”
