Chapter 1857
It was only natural that Duan Ling Tian's expression turned even grimmer when he saw Di Jue provoking him .

A rare unrestrained killing intent had also risen in his eyes .
"Leader Dugu, Mansion Master Duan!" At the same time, Clan Leader Di Shan of the dragon clan had also noticed Leader Dugu of the Mountainshade Black Market and Mansion Master Duan Ru Feng of the Azure Cloud Mansion in the distance . He smiled as he went up to them and took the initiative to greet them .
Although Duan Ru Feng was the one who proposed the five-year pact, he did not treat him too differently .
Just two days ago, he had learned from Elder Qing Yan, the Five-clawed Divine Dragon, that Duan Ru Feng's son, Duan Ling Tian, the lucky fellow who possessed the Devilseal Tablet, was only an Eminent Saint Stage Martial Cultivator!
If a Martial Cultivator who had not entered the Divine Saint Stage were to fight Di Jue who did not break through to the Exemplary Saint Stage, he still would not stand a chance in winning, let alone fighting Di Jue who had already broken through to the Exemplary Saint Stage already .
For this reason, in his opinion, the five-year pact that Duan Ru Feng proposed five years ago was merely a way out for him . After all, Duan Ru Feng had gotten into a huge dispute with their dragon clan at that time .
As for why Duan Ru Feng needed a reason to retreat, it must be because he was wary of the dragon clan in the Upper Province that supported them . He must not have dared to cause a huge uproar in their dragon clan .
"Clan Leader Di Shan . " Dugu nodded his head at Di Shan and greeted him in a slightly cold manner as though he did not think very highly of him . It was a fact that he did not think very highly of Di Shan!
Di Shan was merely a Five-clawed Golden Dragon who did not enter the dragon clan's Saint Land, the Dragon Cleansing Pool . He could not even compare to Dugu in terms of innate talent and strength!
As for the dragon clan behind Di Shan and the dragon clan in the Upper Province, he was not bothered with them at all .
This was because his Mountainshade Black Market was also a very powerful sect in the Upper Province . It was not inferior to the dragon clan in the Upper Province!
As for Duan Ru Feng, he did not speak at all . He merely glanced at Di Shan indifferently and nodded .
Di Shan was not angry at all as he remained smiling .

One could see just how powerful the Clan Leader of the dragon clan was and how magnanimous he was . At the very least, this was the case on the surface of things .
As for what truly lay in his heart, nobody had a clue at all .
Unlike Di Shan's calm demeanor, Xue Chan, Zhi Jing, and Qing Yan who were standing behind Di Shan were furious . It was as though they were going spout flames of wrath at any given time when they saw they way Duan Ru Feng treated their Clan Leader!
Naturally, they had to endure and suppress their anger . What could they even do anyway?

Could they attack Duan Ru Feng to teach him a lesson? Even if they had the courage to do that, would they be a match for him?
Three of them knew this very well . It could be seen from the way they had endured everything .
Di Shan shifted his attention to Duan Ling Tian who was next to Duan Ru Feng . He smiled at Duan Ling Tian before he asked Duan Ru Feng politely, "Mansion Master Duan, is this the Young Mansion Master?"
Duan Ru Feng merely nodded in response to Di Shan's question .
Di Shan seemed accustomed to his behavior and did not show any signs of displeasure . Instead, he turned to Duan Ling Tian and smiled . "Young Mansion Master, you're really a fine-looking man . Not only that, but I've heard you're the lucky young man who possesses the Devilseal Tablet, one of the ten great Super Saint Weapons on the Ten Great Saint Weapons Ranking . In fact, that Devilseal Tablet is a Super Saint Weapon that even an Upper Province powerhouse would covet!" There was an underlying meaning in his words .
Although the dragon clan had searched for Duan Ling Tian upon Di Jue's request, most of them only knew he was called Duan Ling Tian . They did not know how he looked like . Due to this reason, although they had seen Duan Ling Tian's portrait who was said to possess the Devilseal Tablet, they did not make the connection that the Duan Ling Tian they were searching for was the same person .
They only discovered this when the Five-clawed Divine Dragon, Elder Qing Yan, saw Duan Ling Tian three days ago .
Naturally, if Di Jue was not in closed-door cultivation during the past five years, he would have found out about the Devilseal Tablet . If he had found out about the Devilseal Tablet, he would have seen Duan Ling Tian's portrait . At that time, he would be able to confirm this was the same Duan Ling Tian whom he hated and was searching for .

Among the people present on the scene today, nobody knew the Duan Ling Tian who possessed the Devilseal Tablet was the Young Mansion Master of Azure Cloud Mansion except for Leader Dugu and Duan Ling Tian .
Although Dugu knew about it, he did not spread the news . However, he did personally try to look for Duan Ling Tian to snatch the Devilseal Tablet away from him .
As a Devil Cultivator, he, naturally, would not be able to use it . However, he did not wish for a weapon that could kill him to fall into someone else's hands .
"Clan Leader Di Shan, you flatter me . I was just lucky," Duan Ling Tian replied without changing his expression when he heard Di Shan's 'praise' .
As eyes that were filled with greed and heat in the surroundings shifted to him, Duan Ling Tian said to Di Shan again, "Clan Leader Di Shan, if it's possible . I'd like to proceed to the battle of the five-year pact with Di Jue, the next Clan Leader of the dragon clan, as soon as possible!" Duan Ling Tian did not beat around the bush and went straight to the main topic!
"Since you've asked, Young Mansion Master, I, naturally, have no objections . I'm sure Mansion Master Duan and Di Jue won't object to it as well . " From the beginning until the end, the smile remained on Di Shan's face .
In his opinion, the outcome of the five-year pact had already been decided . Di Jue would definitely win .
As for the reason the Young Mansion Master of Azure Cloud Mansion wanted to start the fight as soon as possible was so that he could go home quickly after he was defeated . All this was merely a formality .
"Then…" Just as Di Shan was about to announce the start of the battle between Duan Ling Tian and Di Jue, Duan Ling Tian interrupted him . "Clan Leader Di Shan, before we begin the battle of the five-year pact, I'd like to issue a Death Duel Invitation to Di Jue . The battle today will be a battle of life and death . It won't end until one of us dies!"
The moment his words left his mouth, he shifted his gaze to Di Jue . The killing intent in his eyes was extremely obvious .
Five years ago, he had annihilated Ling Tian Sect! There were less than twenty survivors from the Ling Tian Sect!
Due to Di Jue's strength, he could only suppress his hatred at that time .
Today, at this moment, during the battle of the five-year pact, he no longer had to suppress the hatred he had buried in the bottom of his heart . Instead, he let them rise and burst out . Once he let his hatred out, it was similar to a dam that was broken by a flood .

'Di Jue must die!' This was the only thought left in Duan Ling Tian's mind at this moment .

A battle of life and death?
Would not rest until one of them died?
Di Shan's smile dimmed a little when he was interrupted . However, his heart jolted when he heard Duan Ling Tian's words .
There was a hint of confusion in Di Shan's eyes as he looked at Duan Ling Tian . He was stunned as well . 'Where did Duan Ling Tian get his confidence from? To think he wants to issue a Death Duel Invitation? Don't tell me he's not afraid of death or he's confident he can kill Di Jue?" The moment he thought of this, his heartbeat increased by a few beats . At the same time, he slightly regretted agreeing to the Mansion Master of Azure Cloud Mansion's proposal .
An ominous feeling rose up in his heart at this moment . He felt that it was a trap that Duan Ru Feng had laid out . A trap that had been five years coming!
It was only natural for Di Shan to be filled with these thoughts . After all, not everybody had the courage to issue a Death Duel invitation .
Whoever dared to issue a Death Duel invitation was usually confident in killing their opponents .
Due to this reason, Di Shan had momentarily forgotten that Duan Ling Tian was merely an Eminent Saint Stage Martial Cultivator .
"A battle of life and death? Won't end until one of us dies?" Di Jue was not the only one who was surprised . Everyone, including Duan Ru Feng, Ku Mi, and Gu Li, was also shocked when they heard Duan Ling Tian's words .
They did not expect Duan Ling Tian to request for this!

"Interesting . " Dugu who was also shocked by Duan Ling Tian's request immediately regained his senses . When he looked at Duan Ling Tian again, his eyes shone brightly with a hint of approval .
Regardless if Duan Ling Tian really possessed the strength to kill Di Jue, his courage alone was enough to impress Dugu .
"Tian'er!" Duan Ru Feng was the second person who regained his senses . His expression had turned solemn . He instantly transmitted his voice to his son to warn him . "Di Jue has already broken through to the Exemplary Saint Stage . I can deal with this matter if you want to take back your words . "
There were two reasons for Duan Ru Feng's words .
First, he wanted to know if his son was really confident he could kill Di Jue . Second, he meant what he said about helping his son to get out of this mess .
He trusted Duan Ling Tian and the Old Prophet who was mysterious and elusive .
It was the Old Prophet who instructed him to make the five-year pact with the dragon clan after all .
According to the Old Prophet, if his son was able to enter the dragon clan's Saint Land, the Dragon Cleansing Pool, it would greatly impact his son's future .
Due to this reason, although he did not have much confidence in his son, he chose to trust in his son and the Old Prophet .
Upon hearing Duan Ru Feng's Voice Transmission, Duan Ling Tian felt a sense of warmth enveloping his heart . He replied through Voice Transmission confidently, "Father, don't worry . I'm confident about this!"
In truth, when Duan Ling Tian heard from Duan Ru Feng that Di Jue had already broken through to the Exemplary Saint Stage, his heart sank a little .
