1647 The Governer of Greenwave City

    "Even though the Greenwave Han Mansion is a fifth-rated sect and a well-known presence in the Dao Martial Saint Land's Lower Province, it was still far from being comparable to that Rising Sky Mansion."

    "That's right. The Rising Sky Mansion is a fourth-rated force and its strength far dominates the Greenwave Han Mansion! Even our Greenwave Han Mansion's Lord Mansion Master doesn't dare to act recklessly in front of the Rising Sky Mansion's Young Mansion Master at all. After all, the Rising Sky Mansion's Young Mansion Master represents the entire Rising Sky Mansion!"

    "The Rising Sky Mansion's Mansion Master has four children, but only one son. For this reason, he's fully doted on and spoilt. I heard that since young, there's nothing that the Rising Sky Mansion's Young Mansion Master can't do if he wants to."

    "What a different life he leads! From the moment he came into this world, he has already been labeled as the Rising Sky Mansion's Young Mansion Master but look at us! We can only work hard through our own strengths."

    "That's right. Constantly comparing yourself to others will only make yourself angry!"


    As the conversation between the three of them reached the end of the topic, they sighed emotionally, feeling jealous over the privilege of the Rising Sky Mansion's Young Mansion Master.

    "Rising Sky Mansion? Fourth-rated force?" Duan Ling Tian frowned. "That Rising Sky Mansion's Young Mansion Master has taken a liking towards Greenwave Han Mansion's Eldest Miss. And according to what the waiter said just now, Xue Nai is the Eldest Miss of the Greenwave Han Mansion. So, does this mean that he has taken a liking toward Xue Nai? What an animal! She's still a young girl!"

    In Duan Ling Tian's memory, Han Xue Nai was still that young girl who would never grow up, always appearing like a fifteen to sixteen-year-old girl.

    He did not know that Han Xue Nai had long broken the shackles of the cultivation technique and had grown to become an adult now.

    "Fourth-rated force... Rising Sky Mansion..." When Duan Ling Tian left the restaurant, his heart also felt a little heavy.

    A fifth-rated force was already a colossus to him, let alone a fourth-rated force.

    Right now, he was no longer the newbie that had just arrived at the Dao Martial Saint Land, and he now had a great understanding of the Dao Martial Saint Land as well.

    This also included the fact that Dao Martial Saint Land was split into both Upper and Lower Provinces.

    Right now, he was currently at the Dao Martial Saint Land's Lower Province.

    in the Dao Martial Saint Land's Lower Province, the fourth-rated force was already a top-rated force and there were innumerable powerhouses. Besides that, they even had powerhouses who had far exceeded the Eminent Saint Stage which was the stage after the Refined Saint Stage.

    In a sixth-rated force, the strongest powerhouse would usually also only be on the Refined Saint Stage.

    A fifth-rated force, on the other hand, had Eminent Saint Stage powerhouses.

    In a fourth-rated force, there were even powerhouses who had already exceeded the Eminent Saint Stage.

    On the way back to the inn, Duan Ling Tian thought to himself, 'Right now, I've not even stepped into the Pristine Saint Stage yet. Even if I use the Devilseal Tablet, I can only kill an ordinary Pristine Saint Stage Devil Cultivator. A Refined Saint Stage Devil Cultivator would be more than enough to crush me immediately. It looks like what's most important now is to raise my cultivation base. I only need one step to be able to make a breakthrough to the Pristine Saint Stage successfully.'

    Of course, other than the Devilseal Tablet, Duan Ling Tian could still kill a Refined Saint Stage Devil Cultivator with the help of his Jasper Celestial Sword.

    When he was still in the Moon Illumination Sect, the first Saint Stage powerhouse who had died by his Jasper Celestial Sword was a Moon Illumination Sect supreme elder who was on the Early Pristine Saint Stage.

    Then, Duan Ling Tian had just made a breakthrough to the Paramount Saint Rudiment Stage and had used up almost 90% of his strength to kill him using the Jasper Celestial Sword.

    Last time, in the face of Lin Dong who had just made a breakthrough to the Early Pristine Saint Stage, even though Duan Ling Tian had also killed him with a slice of his sword, he had only used almost 50% of his strength. In other words, the current Duan Ling Tian could brandish the Jasper Celestial Sword twice continuously to kill two powerhouses who were on the Early Pristine Saint Stage.

    Of course, this was also only limited to two strikes.

    After killing the two Early Pristine Saint Stage powerhouses, his entire strength would be depleted and he would fall into a weakened stage.

    By that time, anybody would be able to kill him.

    'If I use up more than 90% of my strength to activate the Jasper Celestial Sword, it should pose no problem for me to kill a person who is on the Intermediate Refined Saint Stage. However, it's almost impossible for me to kill a person who is on the Mastery Refined Saint Stage.' Duan Ling Tian understood his own strength quite well.

    Even though the Jasper Celestial Sword was heaven-defying, it still needed strength as support. The more power was infused into the Jasper Celestial Sword, the power it would demonstrate as well.

    Right now, if he spared no efforts in using the Jasper Celestial Sword with all of his force, he would only be able to kill an Intermediate Refined Saint Stage powerhouse at the most.

    'However, if I've already made it to the Saint Stage, it would then be different. By then, it won't be hard for me to kill a Mastery Refined Saint Stage powerhouse with the help of the Jasper Celestial Sword. I might be able to kill a person who's at the peak of the Refined Saint Stage as well!' Duan Ling Tian was confident about this.

    Once he had made a breakthrough to the Saint Stage, in addition to elevating his strength in various aspects, his True Energy would change to become True Origin and in turn, also transform to become the Sun True Origin.

    By then, the benefits of the enlightenment that Elder Huo carried out for him would reveal themselves gradually too.

    It was exactly because of this that Duan Ling Tian was looking forward to the Saint Stage.

    However, although he was looking forward to it, he was now stuck on the final step of the Imminent Saint Stage. He was only one step away from crossing the threshold to enter the Saint Stage.

    It was exactly this last step about which Duan Ling Tian did not know what to do.

    Just like the second stage of the Sovereign Heart Sword, he still could not find any opportunity.

    However, between these two, Duan Ling Tian felt that his cultivation base would most likely make a breakthrough first compared to the Sovereign Heart Sword because the latter was just too profound. Until now, he still could not find any penetration point of the second stage of the Sovereign Heart Sword.

    Somehow, Duan Ling Tian returned to his inn.

    After returning to his inn, he rested for an entire day before coming to a conclusion. 'I'll go to the Greenwave Han Mansion's sub-mansion here in the Greenwave City early morning tomorrow. By that time, I'll ask them to inform Xue Nai with an identity as Xue Nai's friend. If she learns that I've come to the Greenwave City, she'll definitely come to meet me.'

    Now that he had a plan, Duan Ling Tian made up his mind straightaway.

    Of course, his heart could not rest 100% in peace because he knew that the situation that Xue Nai was facing now was not very promising.

    'With Xue Nai's personality, it'll definitely be impossible for her to take a liking to that Rising Sky Mansion's Young Mansion Master. I'm sure she'll definitely reject this marriage. However, I wonder whether she's already been grounded in the Greenwave Han Mansion or not. If she's grounded, I'll need to go to the Greenwave Han Mansion myself then.' The moment Duan Ling Tian thought of this, he frowned.

    He had long known Xue Nai, so he knew her personality quite well.

    Xue Nai had told him before that her future husband could only have her as his only wife. That was her bottom line.

    Xue Nai worshipped the concept of monogamy.

    This was not rare in Duan Ling Tian's past life, so he did not find this idea of Xue Nai to be wrong.

    However, in this world, this idea of her was indeed rather unconventional.

    This was because the strong ruled in this world. It was completely normal for a powerhouse to have multiple women, or more than ten, or even several dozen women at the same time as long as he could put up with them.

    Of course, it was because of this that Duan Ling Tian felt that Han Xue Nai would never agree to the marriage between her and the Rising Sky Mansion's Young Mansion Master.

    'I hope that Little Fei'er is indeed in the Greenwave Han Mansion. If she is, my child would've been born by now too.' As Duan Ling Tian thought of this, a warm smile crept upon the corner of his mouth.

    The next morning, Duan Ling Tian asked for directions and headed to the Greenwave Han Mansion's sub-mansion.

    The moment the person in charge of the Greenwave Han Mansion's sub-mansion, who was also the Greenwave City Governor, heard that he was Han Xue Nai's friend, he personally welcomed Duan Ling Tian.

    The Greenwave Han Mansion's sub-mansion was also the City Governer's Estate of Greenwave City was situated by the east of the city. The area that it occupied was vast and was no smaller than the Situ Clan in the capital of the Windfall Nation.

    Under the guidance of the City Governor's Estate guards, Duan Ling Tian entered the main palace of the City Governor's Estate and saw the Governor, who was also the person in charge of the Greenwave Han Mansion's sub-mansion. When this handsome, middle-aged man who was wearing a long silver robe stood there and looked at Duan Ling Tian, it gave him an invisible sense of pressure straight away.

    "Did you say that you're the Eldest Miss's friend?" Seeing how Duan Ling Tian's expression remained unfazed even though his aura was locked upon him, shock flashed across the depth of his eyes as well.

    When this person walked into his main palace, he already knew that this was a young man who had not entered the Saint Stage yet and looking at the vitality from his body, he should be less than 40 years old.

    Despite his age, he could remain unfazed although his aura was targeted. Even among the young generations in their Greenwave Han Mansion, not many people could do this as well.

    "Yes." Duan Ling Tian nodded.

    "What's your name?" asked the middle-aged man again.

    "Ling Tian," Duan Ling Tian responded. He did not mention his surname as he needed another name for the other disguise that he was currently wearing.

    Despite this, he knew that Xue Nai would immediately guess that it was him if she heard this name.

    Of course, he had his reasons for disguising his face and concealing his identity as well.

    After leaving the Windfall Nation, Duan Ling Tian already knew that the truth about how the Devilseal Tablet was not in King Qian's hand would be exposed and by then, he would be targeted by everyone.

    By that time, everybody would firmly believe that the Devilseal Tablet was with a person called Duan Ling Tian.

    Besides, the people who had seen him before could also draw a portrait of him and search for him everywhere.

    Even though the news about the Devilseal Tablet had not spread to the Greenwave Han Mansion yet, Duan Ling Tian could already predict that the news regarding the tablet being in his hands would definitely sweep the entire Greenwave Han Mansion's district like a typhoon not long after that. By that time, the people in the Greenwave Han Mansion would also know about Duan Ling Tian and him having the Devilseal Tablet with him.

    Because he had taken this into account, he decided to change his appearance to avoid unnecessary trouble.

    The moment the news about the Devilseal Tablet spread out, the powerhouses that it would attract might even include Eminent Saint Stage powerhouses. Before he possessed adequate strength to protect the Devilseal Tablet, he would never easily reveal his identity.

    This was also why he changed his look and did not spill out his true name.

    "Ling Tian? What a good name," praised the middle-aged man before telling Duan Ling Tian again, "You said that you're the Eldest Miss's friend, but I can't believe you completely. How about this? I'll arrange for you to stay in the City Governor's Estate this period of time and after I've sent my men to confirm this, I'll ask my men to bring you to see her then."
