4280 Becoming Famous
In fact, Duan Ling Tian and Ning Yi Xuan’s fight in the single-person realm should not be known at all.
However, since the supreme powerhouse of the Ning clan broke the rules of the Realm Battlefield by saving Ning Yi Xuan, he was punished after a meeting between supreme powerhouses was called.
The other supreme powerhouses were naturally curious about the matter and enquired about it before telling their descendants about it.
The descendants of the supreme powerhouses were naturally curious about the person who almost killed Ning Yi Xuan.
After all, the person was just a rudimentary Supreme God who had yet to stabilize his cultivation base.
They quickly investigated the matter, sending their subordinate to various Realms of Gods.
It did not take long for them to find out that the person was Duan Ling Tian from the Profound Energy Land’s Myriad Laws Academy.
Out of all the rudimentary Supreme Gods who had yet to stabilize their cultivation bases in the various Realms of Gods, Duan Ling Tian was the only one who fit the description.
The descendants of the supreme powerhouses also learned that Duan Ling Tian was just an advanced Emperor of Gods who had stabilized his cultivation base when he left the Myriad Laws Academy.
They also heard about how he had become an advanced Emperor of Gods from an advanced Lord of Gods in a very short time during his time in the Myriad Laws Academy.
As such, they did not doubt that he was capable of breaking through the realm of a Supreme God after entering the Realm Battlefield.
They also heard from their elders that the person who defeated Ning Yi Xuan was dressed in a purple robe, and Duan Ling Tian from the Myriad Laws Academy in the Profound Energy Land also liked to wear purple robes.
Coincidentally, in the chaotic region, which was formed by the intersection of three Realm Battlefields, they heard about a purple-clad rudimentary Supreme God who had yet to stabilize his cultivation base but was capable of killing most intermediate Supreme Gods.
Considering all these things, they had no doubt that the purple-clad young man was Duan Ling Tian.
After identifying Duan Ling Tian, the descendants of the supreme powerhouses were puzzled.
They wondered why Duan Ling Tian was not on the Profound Zen Battlefield and came to their chaotic region instead.
“Duan Ling Tian is truly talented, but even he has yet to stabilize his cultivation base.
Cultivating in the realm of a Supreme God is a hundred times, no, a thousand times harder than cultivating in the realm of an Emperor of Gods.
I don’t think it’s possible for him to stabilize his cultivation base before the chaotic regions merge, let alone become an intermediate Supreme God.
In any case, he’s definitely a stumbling block to all of us rudimentary Supreme Gods.
Fortunately, he doesn’t have a powerful background.
We don’t have to be afraid of repercussions when we kill him.”
Although there were very strong hints that the Myriad Laws Academy had the protection of a supreme powerhouse, there was no doubt that the supreme powerhouse was not from the Myriad Laws Academy in the past.
As such, there was no fear that the supreme powerhouse would seek revenge from the descendants of other supreme powerhouses just because of a disciple of the Myriad Laws Academy.
After all, what was the use of seeking revenge for a dead disciple? Even supreme powerhouses would weigh the gains and losses before taking action.
Due to Duan Ling Tian’s lack of support, the descendants of the supreme powerhouses were unscrupulous and did not worry about the repercussions of killing him.
“If we kill Duan Ling Tian, we’ll have one fewer competitor among rudimentary Supreme Gods.
If I were ranked 11th, I’ll be able to rank 10th if he dies!’
“Kill him! We must kill him!”
Needless to say, Duan Ling Tian was unaware that a lot of descendants of supreme powerhouses had arrived shortly after he left.
Moreover, many of them brought advanced Supreme Gods as well.
Over the next few days, the descendants of the supreme powerhouses worked together to search for Duan Ling Tian.
When they ran into each other, their first words were usually, “Did you find him?”
Alas, they were unaware that Duan Ling Tian had long left the area, and their search was in vain.
Not much time passed before the descendants of the supreme powerhouses learned that Hong Zhang Yi had led more than a dozen intermediate Supreme Gods to deal with Duan Ling Tian.
Most importantly, Hong Zhang Yi had found Duan Ling Tian and almost succeeded in killing Duan Ling Tian.
Unfortunately, Ning Yi Xuan showed up in the nick of time and saved Duan Ling Tian.
“I was wondering why we couldn’t find… As it turns out, he was alerted by another person!”
“Hong Zhang Yi is really useless! He brought more than a dozen intermediate Supreme Gods with him, but he couldn’t even kill Duan Ling Tian before Ning Yi Xuan showed up!”
“Why did Ning Yi Xuan help Duan Ling Tian? Didn’t Duan Ling Tian almost kill him? Were we mistaken? Is it possible that our target isn’t Duan Ling Tia from the Profound Energy Land? Or perhaps, the person who nearly killed Ning Yi Xuan wasn’t Duan Ling Tian?”
“If Duan Ling Tian was the one who nearly killed Ning Yi Xuan, why did Ning Yi Xuan save him? Moreover, the Ning clan’s ancestor also suffered a loss because of Duan Ling Tian!”
The descendants could not figure out why Ning Yi Xuan would save Duan Ling Tian.
Many of them also thought that Hong Zhang Yi was useless for being unable to kill Duan Ling Tian before Ning Yi Xuan showed up.
However, none of them criticized Hong Zhang Yi for giving up on killing Duan Ling Tian after Ning Yi Xuan showed up.
After all, if they were in his shoes, they would have the same thing.
None of them wanted to offend Ning Yi Xuan, after all.
In fact, it would be better for them to do him a favor by letting Duan Ling Tian go.
Ning Yi Xuan was not just an ordinary descendant of a supreme powerhouse.
He had a very high chance of becoming a supreme powerhouse himself; someone like him was highly valued by supreme powerhouses.
As descendants of supreme powerhouses, they knew this very well.
At this time, Duan Ling Tian was tens of thousands of miles away.
He no longer traveled in a single line; he would randomly fly north, east, and west, and his whereabouts changed constantly.
As such, when someone saw him, it would be too late when the others arrived with their men to kill him.
Duan Ling Tian learned his lesson previously and no longer dared to be careless.
He continued to move in random directions to avoid being found.
He also did not stay in one place for long.
Meanwhile, news of Duan Ling Tian’s identity began to spread.
“Have you heard? That new rudimentary Supreme God capable of killing most intermediate Supreme Gods is from the Profound Energy Land’s Myriad Laws Academy! His name is Duan Ling Tian, and he’s not even a thousand years old!”
“It’s been confirmed.
He also almost killed the Ning clan’s Ning Yi Xuan in a single-person secret realm!”
“Heavens! Duan Ling Tian is not even a thousand years old?! Ning Yi Xuan is also a brilliant prodigy.
Among the younger generation, no one managed to achieve what he did.”
“In this case, Duan Ling Tian should be considered the strongest prodigy among the younger generation in all the Realms of Gods, right?”
“I don’t really believe that someone who’s not even a thousand years old is capable of such feats.
Even descendants of supreme powerhouses can’t achieve so much at his age even if they were given a lot of resources!”
Duan Ling Tian became more and more famous as the news spread.
There were even people who deliberately went to the Myriad Laws Academy in the Profound Energy Land to inquire about Duan Ling Tian.
Initially, they were on the fence, but after asking around in the academy, they were in shock and disbelief.
The speed of Duan Ling Tian’s cultivation was even more absurd than they had heard.
Apart from that, they also confirmed that Duan Ling Tian indeed did not have the support or protection of supreme powerhouses and relied mostly on himself.
They were also shocked by this revelation.
When they returned to the chaotic region where the Profound Sanction Battlefield and another two Realm Battlefields intersected, they quickly spread the news, stirring up an even bigger commotion.
“Someone personally went and confirmed that Duan Ling Tian is really younger than a thousand years old?”
“How terrifying! Tell me, has a monstrous prodigy like him existed before?”
“Who knows? Many things have been buried in the long river of history.”
“In any case, someone like him will definitely become heaven-defyingly strong in the future as long as he doesn’t die prematurely.
He’ll also definitely become a supreme powerhouse!”
“Since Duan Ling Tian doesn’t have a powerful background, he must be very lucky from the time he was in the mundane realm until now.
He must have had many fortuitous encounters to be able to come this far.
It won’t be so easy to kill someone as lucky as he is.
So many descendants of supreme powerhouses are searching for him to kill him, but none of them found him until now.”
“There has been no news about Duan Ling Tian for a while now.
Perhaps, he has already been killed by a descendant of a supreme powerhouse.
Perhaps, the culprit didn’t dare to spread the word because he’s afraid of offending Ning Yi Xuan.”
Meanwhile, Duan Ling Tian, who was looking for a remote place to enter closed-door cultivation, did not know that he was growing more and more famous.
After Duan Ling Tian entered closed-door cultivation, an unkempt middle-aged man, who had just left a secret realm, entered a base camp where many people from six Realms of Gods gathered.
It did not take long for him to hear about Duan Ling Tian.
“Duan Ling Tian from the lower realm? He’s not even a thousand years old, but he has mastered two out of the Four Daos of Heaven and Earth, the Sword Dao and the Mastery Dao? He’s from the Profound Energy Land’s Myriad Laws Academy? The prominent divine artifact he uses is a divine sword that emits seven-colored light?”
Xia Jie was stunned.
“A sword that emits seven-colored lights? Isn’t that the Seven Orifices Exquisite Sword I gave Duan Ling Tian? Could someone with the same name kill him and rob the Seven Orifices Exquisite Sword?” Xia Jie muttered under his breath as he thought about his niece’s husband, “If the person everyone is talking about is him, then he’s truly heaven-defying!”
