Chapter 3492 - : The Instigator and the Accomplice

Chapter 3492: The Instigator and the Accomplice
When Duan Ling Tian regained his senses, they had already left Primeval Cliff. He asked, “Master, where are we gIt was almost impossible to enter the Primeval Cliff due to the protection of the Formations. However, those at the Primeval Cliff could leave easily. This was also the reason Great Master Miyan had to bribe an elder to let him in, but he could leave easily.

“Is it a success? Feng Qing Yang wasn’t alerted?” Xu Kong Hai, the Vice Temple Master of the main Title Temple, asked as soon as he saw Ru Lai who had been possessed by Great Master Miyan. His eyes were bright as he stared at Great Master Miyan. He had been guarding outside all this time and did not see Feng Qing Yang.
“I failed.” Great Master Miyan’s expression darkened when Xu Kong Hai mentioned Feng Qing Yang.
“How could you fail when Feng Qing Yang didn’t show up?” Xu Kong Hai frowned.
“Feng Qing Yang was there. In fact, he probably arrived at the Primeval Cliff earlier than I did,” Great Master Miyan solemnly said, “He showed up just as I was about to make a move on Duan Ling Tian. Since he injured my divine soul previously, my strength has diminished by half. I was almost killed by him earlier. At the crucial moment, Yu Dong Fang, Heavenly Emperor Xuanyuan’s third true disciple, pleaded on my behalf under his master’s orders. Duan Ling Tian had previously agreed to grant one of Heavenly Emperor Xuanyuan’s requests. For this reason, Feng Qing Yang did not kill me…” Great Master Miyan’s eyes flashed as he clenched his hands tightly.
Xu Kong Hai’s expression soured when he learned that Feng Qing Yang foiled their plan. “Feng Qing Yang was there? He’s really protective of his disciple. It seems like kidnapping Duan Ling Tian is going to be more difficult than I expected…”
Xu Kong Hai and the Great Master Miyan assumed Feng Qing Yang had been waiting at the Primeval Cliff for a long time. In truth, Feng Qing Yang had only arrived 15 minutes before Great Master Miyan. Great Master Miyan did not see Feng Qing Yang because Feng Qing Yang had entered using another entrance.
Since the Primeval Cliff was part of the Heavenly Palace of the Primeval Heaven, Ding Fu, the Heavenly Emperor of the Primeval Heaven, could naturally enter when and as he pleased. Ding Fu had led Feng Qing Yang to the entrance and ordered his men to let Feng Qing Yang in.
When Feng Qing Yang had spoken to Ding Fu about this matter, Ding Fu had made preparations. He had ordered the elders guarding the Primeval Cliff to report back to him immediately if anyone from the Title Temple wanted to enter the Primeval Cliff. He had predicted those from the Title Temple might bribe their way in so he had also told the guards that they would be allowed to keep the bribe. With this, the guards were naturally delighted and even more eager to help. After all, they did not have to betray the Heavenly Palace of the Primeval Heaven, but they would also be able to obtain a treasure.

“Master, where are we going?” Duan Ling Tian asked as he regained his senses.
“You’ll find out once we arrive.”
Soon after, they arrived at a spacious courtyard. With just a glance, Duan Ling Tian knew they were at the courtyard of the Heavenly Emperor of the Pavilion Shaft.
As soon as Gongsun Xuanyuan saw them, he immediately expressed his gratitude to both Feng Qing Yang and Duan Ling Tian. “Thank you for showing mercy.”
Gongsun Xuanyuan was well aware that Ru Lai managed to survive not just because of Duan Ling Tian but because of Feng Qing Yang as well. After all, if Feng Qing Yang insisted on killing Ru Lai, there was nothing Duan Ling Tian would be able to do.
“Gongsun Xuanyuan, my disciple no longer owes you a favor,” Feng Qing Yang said.
“Yes.” Gongsun Xuanyuan smiled wryly. He did not expect the favor to be returned so quickly as well. Inwardly, he was cursing Great Master Miyan. Did Great Master Miyan not know that Feng Qing Yang and Ding Fung were good friends? How could that fool make a move on Duan Ling Tian in Ding Fung’s territory?
Feng Qing Yang’s gaze was piercing as he looked at Gongsun Xuanyuan and asked, “Ru Lai isn’t himself, is he?”
Gongsun Xuanyuan’s eyes widened imperceptibly, which didn’t escape Feng Qing Yang and Duan Ling Tian’s notice.
“It seems like I’m right,” Feng Qing Yang said indifferently, “If I’m not mistaken, the person possessing Ru Lai is a member of the Phantom Clan in the Land of the Dead, right?”
“You know?” Gongsun Xuanyuan did not intend to admit to the matter, but he was shocked by Feng Qing Yang’s accurate guess.
“I’m certain Ru Lai is still alive even if the person is now in control of Ru Lai,” Feng Qing Yang continued to say, “He must have failed in completely possessing Ru Lai’s body, hence, he covets my disciple’s body. After all, not only is my disciple a Yan Huang Entity who possesses 99 Heavenly Veins, but he has also created and comprehended two of the Four Daos of Heaven and Earth. Moreover, my disciple has a high comprehension of the law of space…”
“Yes, you’re right.” Gongsun Xuanyuan knew it was useless to deny the matter now.
Feng Qing Yang nodded. Then, he asked with a frown, “Is there no way to exorcise him?”
“There’s nothing we can do,” Gongsun Xuanyuan said with a hint of helplessness, “That person’s divine soul has fused with Ru Lai’s soul. Unless he willingly leaves Ru Lai’s body or if a supreme powerhouse intervenes, there’s nothing we can do.”
“Duan Ling Tian,” Gongsun Xuanyuan said in a grave tone, “Never leave the Heavenly Palace of the Solitary Destructive Heaven unless it’s absolutely necessary. If you must leave, it’s best if your master accompanies you. Otherwise, that person from the Phantom Clan will definitely make a move…”
Duan Ling Tian remained silent after he heard Gongsun Xuanyuan’s warning. He was certain that when that person had probed him previously, Gongsun Xuanyuan must have already guessed that person’s intention. However, not only did Gongsun Xuanyuan not warn him, but Gongsun Xuanyuan even asked for a favor from him.
Duan Ling Tian speculated that Gongsun Xuanyuan must have hoped that the person from the Phantom Clan would succeed in possessing him so that Ru Lai would regain his freedom. Gongsun Xuanyuan had asked for a favor back then in case that person from the Phantom Clan failed.
Upon seeing Duan Ling Tian’s cold reception, Gongsun Xuanyuan could naturally guess Duan Ling Tian’s thoughts. A hint of guilt could be seen in the depths of his eyes as he smiled bitterly.
“Let’s go.” Feng Qing Yang brought along Duan Ling Tian and left.
After leaving Gongsun Xuanyuan’s courtyard, Feng Qing Yang asked, “Did you gain anything at the Primeval Cliff?”
“Yes.” Duan Ling Tian nodded. “However, I was interrupted by that person from the Phantom Clan.”
Since Duan Ling Tian knew Ru Lai was possessed, it did not feel right to address that person as Ru Lai.
“You should continue then…” Feng Qing Yang said before he sent Duan Ling Tian back to the Primeval Cliff.
Although Ding Fu had laid down a rule that the young geniuses would not be able to enter again after leaving the Primeval Cliff, Duan Ling Tian was an exception to that rule. After all, Duan Ling Tian was the true disciple of his good friend, Feng Qing Yang. Moreover, unlike the Title Temple’s chamber of law, the Primeval Cliff would not lose its energy no matter how many times people went there to comprehend the laws. Therefore, Ding Fu had nothing to lose by granting Duan Ling Tian access to the Primeval Cliff.
After Duan Ling Tian entered the Primeval Cliff, a figure suddenly appeared next to Feng Qing Yang who was hovering outside of the Formation. It was none other than Ding Fu, the Heavenly Emperor of the Primeval Heaven.
“What did you find out?” Feng Qing Yang asked Ding Fu.
“After he left the Primeval Cliff, he met up with Xu Kong Hai. Xu Kong Hai must have known about this matter as well. They must be working together to kidnap Junior Nephew Duan…” Ding Fu said.
Under normal circumstances, Xu Kong Hai, who had attained godhood, would have sensed Ding Fu’s presence if Ding Fu lurked around him. However, since he was in Ding Fu’s territory, Ding Fu easily concealed his aura with the Formations in the Heavenly Palace of the Primeval Heaven. As long as he was careful, gods would not be able to sense him.
Feng Qing Yang scoffed. “It seems like that person is using Xu Kong Hai.”
After discovering the motive of that person from the Phantom Clan, Feng Qing Yang knew that person must have lied to Xu Kong Hai and said that he was helping the Title Temple to capture Duan Ling Tian. After all, that person needed Xu Kong Hai’s help to stall for time if Feng Qing Yang came. Once that person succeeded in kidnapping Duan Ling Tian, that person would definitely flee.
