Translator: EndlessFantasy Translation Editor: EndlessFantasy Translation
Although the white-clad woman’s back was facing Duan Ling Tian, one could see her body trembling slightly as soon as she heard Duan Ling Tian’s voice. She slowly turned around and saw a purple-clad young man standing near her. Although it had been years since she last saw him, he still remained the same.
“Brother Ling Tian? Am… am I dreaming?” Huan’er removed her hat and veil, revealing her beautiful face. As soon as she revealed her face, the surroundings seemed to dim in comparison.
Even the Pavilion Master of the Imperial Tutor Pavilion was slightly taken aback by Huan’er’s beauty. He had lived for almost 30,000 years, but this was the first time he had seen such a peerless beauty. ‘Such a beauty actually exists in this world?’
“Huan’er!” Duan Ling Tian could no longer hold back; he quickly made his way to Huan’er.
At the same time, Huan’er moved like a gust of wind toward Duan Ling Tian as well. She ran into his arms and hugged him tightly. Tears welled up in her eyes and rolled down her cheeks as she said, “Brother Ling Tian, Huan’er misses you very much…”
“I’ve missed you too.” Duan Ling Tian held Huan’er tightly and expressed the thought that he had hidden in his heart all this time. He had been worried out of his mind when Huan’er first left without a word. He felt incredibly relieved now that he saw Huan’er was unharmed.
About 15 minutes later, Duan Ling Tian pulled away slightly before he said, “Huan’er, promise me that you’ll never leave again without saying goodbye…”
“Brother Ling Tian, did you miss me while I was away?” Huan’er asked.
Duan Ling Tian could not help but feel distressed when he saw tear marks on her face. “Of course I’ve missed you! I was afraid you’d get into trouble. I searched for you for a long time, but I couldn’t find you. Where did you go?”
“If that’s the case, I didn’t leave in vain,” Huan’er said.
“How can you say that?” Duan Ling Tian was rendered speechless by Huan’er’s words.
He recalled the words Huan’er left behind in a Celestial Talisman back then. The message read:
Brother Ling Tian, I’m leaving. Although I’m reluctant, I think it’s best that I leave. Perhaps while I’m away, you’ll miss me more, just like how you miss Sister Ke’er, Sister Li Fei, Sister Murong, and Sister Feng Tian Wu.
This was the reason that Huan’er had left. Up until now, he still thought Huan’er had behaved too immaturely. However, it was only natural since he knew she had a child-like behavior. She had never been exposed to the world until she met him. All he could do was blame himself for ignoring Huan’er’s feelings.
“Huan’er, promise me you’ll never leave again. When you left, I finally realized how important you are to me…” Duan Ling Tian coaxed gently. It was true that he only realized Huan’er’s importance after she had left.
“Really?” A hint of excitement could be seen on Huan’er’s face when she heard Duan Ling Tian’s words. She looked at him intently, clearly wanting confirmation.
“Yes.” Duan Ling Tian nodded.
“Brother Ling Tian, Huan’er will never leave you again.” Huan’er threw herself into Duan Ling Tian’s arms again. For the longest time, she was unwilling to let go. Only when Duan Ling Tian told her they had company that she left his embrace with an embarrassed expression on her face.
Duan Ling Tian held Huan’er’s hand and brought her to the old man. “Senior, this is Huan’er, she’s my… sister.”
“Sister?” The old man smiled knowingly. “Isn’t she your lover?”
Duan Ling Tian was embarrassed when he heard the old man’s words.
On the contrary, Huan’er was delighted. She said with a smile, “Old man, you speak really well! Are you from the Profound Nether Mansion as well?”
“Huan’er, where are your manners!” Duan Ling Tian gently admonished her.
“It’s alright,” the old man waved his hand and said, “It seems like this girl’s not familiar with worldly affairs; it’s only natural that she doesn’t know much about etiquettes… However, why is she targeted by the members of the Phantom Fox Clan?” He had probed her with his Divine Consciousness but did not find anything out of the ordinary.
Huan’er was the only Thousand Phantoms Ice Fox that appeared in the Phantom Fox Clan in the last million years. Since her cultivation base had improved, she could hide her aura. Only those stronger than Celestial Emperors would be able to discern her identity. However, members of the Phantom Fox Clan would be able to tell she was a fox; the more knowledgeable ones might even be able to tell she was a Thousand Phantoms Ice Fox.
“Senior, it’s a long story. I’ll tell you all about it when we have the time.” Duan Ling Tian did not intend to lie to the old man. After a beat, he asked, “Senior, there shouldn’t be a problem for Huan’er to join the Profound Nether Mansion, right?”
“It’s not a problem at all… A Ten Directions Celestial Duke who’s under the age of 100. It seems like she’s monstrously talented just like you. Heavens!” The old man sighed emotionally.
With this, Duan Ling Tian finally learned Huan’er had already become a Ten Directions Celestial Duke! He had only successfully become a Ten Directions Celestial Dukes thanks to the Heaven Sacrificial Divine Fruit, but that was clearly not the case for Huan’er.
‘It’s obvious the powers of a Thousand Phantoms Ice Fox is remarkable if Huan’er didn’t run into any fortuitous encounter and raised her cultivation base by herself.’ Duan Ling Tian concluded that Huan’er’s cultivation base had risen so quickly due to her being a Thousand Phantoms Ice Fox.
At this moment, the old man brought an exquisite box out.
Duan Ling Tian was dumbfounded when he saw the contents of the box. He saw an Ice King Celestial Fruit and a Fire King Celestial Fruit, similar to the ones he had consumed previously.
By consuming the two fruits, a Ten Directions Celestial Duke could instantly break through and become a One Basic Celestial King in a short time.
Since Duan Ling Tian had consumed them before, he was aware of their efficacy.
Duan Ling Tian did not expect the old man to possess another pair of the Celestial Fruits. Were these Celestial Fruits so common now?
“Girl, since this is our first meeting, here’s a meeting gift for you.” After the old man closed the box, he presented them to Huan’er.
Huan’er did not immediately reach out to take the box. Instead, she looked at Duan Ling Tian for cues.
“Senior, these fruits are too valuable…” Duan Ling Tian said solemnly. Although he wanted Huan’er to consume the Celestial Fruits so she could become a Celestial King as soon as possible, he was too embarrassed to accept such a valuable gift. After a moment, before the old man could reply, he added, “Otherwise, we’ll accept these fruits, but I’ll owe you a favor…”
“Boy, it’s clear you want these fruits, but you’re still acting polite. This isn’t like you. Anyway, this is a gift for the girl. Her name’s Huan’er, right?” the old man said with a hint of impatience. He could clearly see Huan’er’s importance to Duan Ling Tian and her feelings for Duan Ling Tian. By giving her these Celestial Fruits, he knew Duan Ling Tian would feel even more grateful to him. Moreover, he genuinely liked Huan’er.
“Huan’er, since senior insists on giving the fruits to you, just accept it,” Duan Ling Tian said to Huan’er. At the same time, he made up his mind to repay the old man in the future.
“Thank you.” Huan’er thanked the old man and took the box. After that, she passed it to Duan Ling Tian, clearly intending to give it to him.
“Huan’er, keep it for yourself… The Celestial Fruits inside this box will help you to break through and become a Celestial King in a short time after you consume it,” Duan Ling Tian said, “A month ago, I’ve already consumed these Celestial Fruits and successfully became a Celestial King.” After he finished speaking, he could not help but glance at the old man, wondering how many of these Celestial Fruits the old man had in his possession.
“Boy, I can read the thoughts in your mind… I only have two Ice King Celestial Fruits and two Fire King Celestial Fruits. I’ve given all of them to you,” the old man said.
Meanwhile, Huan’er’s eyes lit up when she heard Duan Ling Tian’s words, she did not expect these Celestial Fruits to be so powerful.
After the old man brought Duan Ling Tian and Huan’er back to the Imperial Tutor Pavilion in the Profound Nether Mansion’s estate, he left Duan Ling Tian and Huan’er alone, returning to the backyard.
After the duo entered the room, Duan Ling Tian asked, “Huan’er, what happened over the past few years?” He was curious about how Huan’er had become a Ten Directions Celestial Duke so quickly.
After listening to Huan’er’s words, he learned that she had spent most of the time they were apart in closed-door cultivation. With that, she naturally broke through and became a Ten Directions Celestial Duke.
Duan Ling Tian was slightly shocked. ‘No wonder Thousand Phantoms Ice Foxes are so rare that they only appear once in a million years. Her powers are heaven-defying!”
Based on how quickly Huan’er became a Ten Directions Celestial Duke without any external help, Duan Ling Tian was rather certain no one in the Spirit Overarching Heaven could compare to Huan’er’s cultivation speed.
After a moment, Duan Ling Tian recalled another important matter. He asked, “Huan’er, did you comprehend any law yet?”
“What law did you comprehend?” Duan Ling Tian asked curiously as his eyes brightened.
