Duan Ling Tian naturally did know that Ke'er was not in the chaotic region and had left the Realm Battlefield, let alone that she was in imminent danger because of Ling Jue Yun, the only survivor of the Divine Offering Land's Ling clan that was annihilated.
Naturally, this matter was not within Ling Jue Yun's control. If he had known that Duan Ling Tian's wife was in one of the spatial passages in the Ling clan's estate and that the spatial passages would collapse after he entered his ancestor's cultivation ground, he would have warned her beforehand. After, Duan Ling Tian was his only friend in this world. Although they did not spend much time together, they cherished the friendship very much.
At this time, Duan Ling Tian was still wandering the chaotic region and killing rudimentary Supreme Gods he encountered. He did not spare the people from the various Realms of Gods. Although the rewards were meager, they were better than nothing.
As time passed, Duan Ling Tian noticed that the number of people in the area had decreased. After a while, he stopped running into rudimentary Supreme Gods and only saw a few intermediate Supreme Gods. Even then, as time continued to pass, even the number of times he saw intermediate Supreme Gods had decreased significantly.
When half a year had passed, and Duan Ling Tian did not encounter any intermediate or rudimentary Supreme Gods, he began to sense that something was amiss.
‘Am I being targeted?”
Duan Ling Tian's expression turned grim when this thought appeared in his mind. He could not figure out what was going on at all.
Duan Ling Tian felt like he had been keeping a low profile, but little did he know, he had gained fame for being the most terrifying rudimentary Supreme God in the area. After all, he had yet to stabilize his cultivation base in the realm of a rudimentary Supreme God, but was capable of easily killing most intermediate Supreme Gods. He even managed to kill relatively powerful intermediate Supreme Gods who had already stabilized their cultivation bases.
“Don't go in that direction… There's a god killer over there who's capable of killing most intermediate Supreme Gods. He's only keeping a low profile…”
“I've already warned you. Don't blame me if you insist on going over there. You'll definitely die if you attack him! Don't even think about catching him off guard!”
Brother, since we're from the same Realm of Gods, let me give you a piece of advice. Avoid that place. It's very dangerous there.”
“How dangerous is it?”
“Haven't you heard about that monstrous rudimentary Supreme God in that area? He's so strong that he can even kill intermediate Supreme Gods who have stabilized their cultivation bases!”
“I'm not joking. Don't blame me if he kills you!”
“Don't go there. It's best to avoid the northern area. A monster roams there…”
“A rudimentary Supreme God who hasn't stabilized his cultivation but is capable of killing intermediate Supreme Gods who have stabilized their cultivation bases!”
The area where Duan Ling Tian was wandering had become a ‘forbidden land” for rudimentary and most intermediate Gods after word of his feats spread. Those with a keen eye could easily see through Duan Ling Tian's strength, and it did not take long for it to spread.
In the beginning, a few bold intermediate Supreme Gods did not think much about the news and ventured into the area. However, when they witnessed the deaths of a few intermediate Supreme Gods from afar, they quickly fled without looking back, creating another uproar.
“He's truly a monster. Despite being a rudimentary Supreme God, his comprehension of the law of space is capable of manifesting the phenomenon that shines for a million miles! Not only that, but he has comprehended the Sword Dao and Mastery Dao to such a terrifying level!”
“His sword seems extraordinary. If I'm not mistaken, his sword must have absorbed fragments of prime divine artifacts!”
When people talked about Duan Ling Tian, they, especially those who were powerful, also spoke about the advanced chaotic region and topics relevant to it.
“When the chaotic regions merge into one, I wonder if any rudimentary Supreme God will be able to rival that monster.”
“From what I heard, rudimentary Supreme Gods are the most competitive. There are rumors that the rewards are so precious that even supreme powerhouses are moved by them even if they are useless to supreme powerhouses. The higher you rank, the more you'll receive from the divine fountain!”
“What? You've never heard of the divine fountain?”
“A drop from the divine fountain is said to be equivalent to a thousand years of cultivation of an ordinary rudimentary Supreme God. I don't know what it means, but I heard from someone that the divine fountain isn't from this heaven and earth.”
As people continued to discuss among themselves, many people thought that Duan Ling Tian was attracting too much attention and that it might not be a good thing.
“Unless that purple-clad young man, who became famous recently, is a direct descendant of a supreme powerhouse, I'm afraid that he'll run out of luck soon.”
“You heard about him as well? I agree. He'll definitely die if he doesn't have a strong background.”
“When the chaotic regions merge, the competition between the top rudimentary Supreme Gods will be the most intense. After all, many direct descendants of supreme powerhouses are rudimentary Supreme Gods!”
“That's right! Although they all enjoy the care of supreme powerhouses, the divine fountain isn't something supreme powerhouses can give them! The fight for the rewards from the divine fountain will definitely be fierce!”
“That purple-clad young man will be seen as an obstacle by the others. I won't be surprised if they hire powerhouses to deal with him.”
“I agree. That purple-clad young man can kill most intermediate Supreme Gods, but can he kill top intermediate Supreme Gods and advanced Supreme Gods?”
“He doesn't only have to worry about top intermediate Supreme Gods and advanced Supreme Gods. What if a dozen or more rudimentary Supreme Gods join forces to deal with him? Will he be a match for them?”
“This is the consequence for standing out so much!”
“As the saying goes, ‘The nail that sticks out gets hammered”!”
While the others were discussing this matter, Ning Yi Xuan who just entered the chaotic region finally heard the news.
‘A purple-clad young man who comprehended the Sword Dao and the Mastery Dao?”
He was naturally familiar with the object of everyone's discussion. He would never forget what he had experienced for the rest of his life.
He had accumulated many battle merits over the years to open a single-person secret realm and met Duan Ling Tian there. At that time, he was almost killed by Duan Ling Tian who comprehended the Sword Dao and the Mastery Dao to high levels. Although Duan Ling Tian had yet to stabilize his cultivation base, he had comprehended the law of space to the point where it could manifest a phenomenon that shone for 100,000 miles. As though that was not shocking enough, he just found that Duan Ling Tian's law of space could now manifest a phenomenon that shone for a million miles.
‘I didn't expect him to progress so much in such a short time! Now that his law of space has improved so significantly, his strength must have grown significantly as well!”
Ning Yi Xuan felt helpless when he thought about this. He also could not help but shake his head when he heard people speculating if Duan Ling Tian had the support of a supreme powerhouse. They would have been shocked silly if they knew he was from the lower realm.
After Duan Ling Tian nearly killed him, he had investigated Duan Ling Tian. After learning that Duan Ling Tian was monstrously strong despite coming from the lower realm, he almost gave up on himself. Fortunately, he managed to pull himself together in the end. He had a new goal now: defeat Duan Ling Tian! This goal motivated him to grow stronger. Unlike before, he did not despair when he heard that Duan Ling Tian's law of space could now manifest a phenomenon that shone for a million miles. On the contrary, he grew even more determined.
Ning Yi Xuan shook his head as he thought to himself, ‘I wonder if he's still keeping a low profile… Is he aware that he's been exposed and that everyone knows about him?”
‘Those direct descendants of supreme powerhouses who are stuck in the realm of rudimentary Supreme Gods and have no confidence in facing their Heavenly Tribulations must view him as a thorn in the flesh. I'm sure they've already started to take action against him. I hope he doesn't die. Otherwise, I'll lose my goal. He better takes good care of himself.”
Perhaps, in the past, Ning Yi Xuan would think that it would be good if Duan Ling Tian died. After all, it meant that he would still be the most brilliant prodigy in the various Realms of Gods. However, now, he hoped for Duan Ling Tian's survival. After all, Duan Ling Tian was the source of his motivation and determination to grow stronger now.
A few days later, Duan Ling Tian decided to leave the area.
Just as Duan Ling Tian was about to leave, a dozen people suddenly appeared, glaring at him. They were all intermediate Supreme Gods, except for a finely-dressed middle-aged man who was a rudimentary Supreme God.
The middle-aged man narrowed his eyes as he looked at Duan Ling Tian and said, “Young man, you're really remarkable. You just became a rudimentary Supreme God and have yet to stabilize your cultivation base, but you're already capable of killing intermediate Supreme Gods.”
A hint of jealousy could be seen in the middle-aged man's eyes when he spoke.
The middle-aged man's grandfather was a supreme powerhouse. Due to his doting grandfather, even advanced Supreme Gods were respectful to him. However, at this moment, his sense of superiority vanished when faced with the purple-clad Duan Ling Tian. Although he was the grandson of a supreme powerhouse, his innate talent and comprehension skills were only average. In fact, he was not confident he would be able to survive his upcoming Heavenly Tribulation. He was already severely injured from his previous Heavenly Tribulation, after all. As such, when he heard about the divine fountain, it became his only hope of surviving.
When the middle-aged man first heard about Duan Ling Tian, he did not waste time and gathered about a dozen intermediate Supreme Gods. He promised to reward them handsomely if they killed Duan Ling Tian.
After finding out that the middle-aged man was the grandson of a supreme powerhouse, many intermediate Supreme Gods did not hesitate to help him, hoping to curry favor.
Meanwhile, Duan Ling Tian frowned slightly upon hearing the middle-aged man's words.
‘They deliberately came for me?”
