War Sovereign Soaring The Heavens - Chapter 3529: Ke’er
Chapter 3529: Ke’er
“I see.” Duan Ling Tian looked at his daughter with a smile on his face. At some point, he began to discover his daughter really resembled his wife, Ke’er. At this time, he had been separated from Ke’er for 600 years. The time they were separated was no longer than the time they spent together.
“Father, are you thinking about mother?” Duan Si Ling asked. Ever since she left the Divine Offering Realm, she had been with Feng Tian Wu. Although Feng Tian Wu treated her like her daughter, it was only natural that Feng Tian Wu could not replace her mother. When she saw the look in her father’s eyes, it was not difficult to guess what was going through his mind.
Duan Ling Tian regained his senses and nodded. A hint of worry flashed in his eyes as he said, “I wonder how your mother is doing…”
“Don’t worry, father. Mother will be fine. She’s waiting to reunite with us,” Duan Si Ling replied solemnly.
“You’re right.” Duan Ling Tian nodded. He did not want to show any negative emotions in front of his daughter. Inwardly, he could not help but worry about Ke’er’s safety in the Divine Offering Land.
The Realm Battlefield was created from the collision of various Realms of Gods every 10,000 years. It would stay open for 1,000 years. During this time, anyone from the Realms of God could enter it. By killing, one would earn points and be rewarded by supreme powerhouses. In other words, the Realm Battlefield was nothing more than a means for supreme powerhouses to amuse themselves.
On the other hand, to those who entered the Realm Battlefield, it was a vicious place filled with violence and bloodshed. As soon as they encountered another person, they would fight to the death; it did not matter even if one came from the same Realm of Gods. It was undoubtedly a cruel place.
At this time, in a snow-covered land in the Realm Battlefield.
Swoosh! Swoosh! Swoosh! Swoosh! Swoosh!
The sound of swords whistling in the air reverberated loudly as a wave of freezing energy swept out, causing the temperature to drop even lower.
Two figures could be seen in the air at this moment. One of them was a woman dressed in a yellow robe who looked to be about twenty years old. She was very pretty and possessed a pair of bright eyes. At this time, she was looking down on three figures that had been frozen solid on the ground. The three people’s bodies were riddled with wounds.
The other person hovering in the air was a woman dressed in a white robe. She was so beautiful that the pretty yellow-clad woman standing behind her paled in comparison. Her cold expression only added to her charm. At this time, she was wielding her crystal sword that was radiating freezing energy. A flame of ice shot into the sword at this moment. Anyone with a discerning eye would be able to tell it was the sword spirit of the sword and that it had been severely injured.
Without any warning, the white-clad woman suddenly spat out a mouthful of blood that quickly froze in the low temperature.
“I’m fine,” Ke’er, the white-clad woman, replied, “Unfortunately, the spirit of my divine sword is injured and almost destroyed. It’ll take several decades to recover.”
Although Ke’er said she was fine, her voice grew fainter and fainter as though it was difficult for her to catch her breath.
“Sister Ke’er, why don’t we leave the Realm Battlefield and return to the Divine Offering Land since you’re not feeling well. With your strength and age, I’m sure you come from a prominent family, right?” the yellow-clad woman said.
“I’m not leaving the Realm Battlefield,” Ke’er said resolutely as she shook her head, “You should return first. With your strength, it’s best you don’t stay here for long…”
“What about you?” the yellow-clad woman asked.
“I need to stay.” Ke’er’s eyes flashed as two figures appeared in her mind: a purple-clad young man and a little girl. ‘Brother Ling Tian, Si Ling… I hope both of you are safe…’
The yellow-clad woman shook her head. “I’ll stay with you, Sister Ke’er. At the very least, I should stay with you until you feel better…”
At this point, Ke’er, otherwise known as Xia Ning Xue; the Young Miss of the Divine Offering Land’s Xia clan, had been in the Realm Battlefield for many years now. She had regained her full strength after a few centuries had passed. Nevertheless, she was determined to grow stronger so she entered the Realm Battlefield. Even if her clan gave her all their cultivation resources, it could not compare to the Realm Battlefield where she could improve swiftly.
“Sister Ke’er, what’s your surname?” the yellow-clad woman asked probingly.
“Duan,” Ke’er responded curtly. In fact, she was not familiar with the yellow-clad woman. She was passing by a place at that time and saved the yellow-clad woman. After that, the yellow-clad woman had been following her after learning that she was also from the Divine Offering Land. Although she did not agree to the yellow-clad woman following her, she did not chase the yellow-clad woman away as well.
“Duan? Duan Ke’er?” The yellow-clad woman raised an eyebrow as her eyes gleamed. “Sister, I’ve never heard of the Duan clan in the Divine Offering Land. Which sect are you from?”
“I have no sect nor clan. I’m a sectless cultivator,” Ke’er replied.
“A sectless cultivator?” A strange light flashed in the depths of the yellow-clad woman’s eyes.
“I need to find a place to heal my injuries. I won’t be doing much for a while so it’s best if you leave this place and return to the Divine Offering Land,” Ke’er said as she flew across the snowy land.
“Sister Ke’er, let me help you keep a lookout while you heal. I, Tong Xiao Xiao, am not an ingrate. Since you saved my life once, how can I abandon you now?” the yellow-clad woman said as she flew after Ke’er.
Finally, Ke’er found a small ice mountain and carved a cave on the mountain wall to nurse her injuries.
Tong Xiao Xiao followed Ke’er into the cave.
Ke’er, whose aura was growing weaker by the moment, ignored Tong Xiao Xiao. She hurriedly erected a barrier around herself before she began to heal her injuries.
Tong Xiao Xiao watched as Ke’er closed her eyes and healed her injuries. After a long time, she called out tentatively, “Sister Ke’er? Sister Ke’er?”
Upon seeing there was no response from Ke’er, Tong Xiao Xiao’s eyes shone with greed as she sent a wave of divine energy to shatter the barrier around Ke’er. She was determined to kill Ke’er to obtain Ke’er’s treasures.
Just as Tong Xiao Xiao’s attack was about land, Ke’er suddenly opened her eyes, and a wall of ice suddenly appeared between her and Tong Xiao Xiao.
A loud explosion rang in the air.
A crack could be seen on the wall of ice, but it successfully withstood Tong Xiao Xiao’s attack.
“How’s this possible?!” Tong Xiao Xiao cried out in horror, “Why are you still so powerful? Aren’t you injured? You… Did you trick me?!”
“So what if I tricked you?” Ke’er rose to her feet. Her white robe began to flutter even though there was no wind. Her eyes were without ripples as she said, “I found it strange that you persistently followed me. Although I saved your life, I didn’t expect you to repay me. However, not only are you ungrateful, but you even tried to repay my kindness by betraying me…”
When Ke’er finished speaking, the entire cave was already brimming with a biting cold energy. A wave of freezing energy swept out and formed a cage around Tong Xiao Xiao.
Tong Xiao Xiao, who comprehended the law of thunder, tried her best to free herself. Raging energy surged in the cage, but it was futile. The strength difference between her and Ke’er was not too wide, but it was enough to make a difference. When she realized there was no way she could break free, she forced a smile on her face and said, “Sister Ke’er, I was just joking with you… I… I’ll leave now, and I promise to stay far away from you…”
“I’ve already given you a chance,” Ke’er replied tonelessly.
As soon as Ke’er’s voice fell, her divine energy that was imbued with the law of ice struck Tong Xiao Xiao and froze Tong Xiao Xiao into an ice sculpture. Then, she gently pushed the ice sculpture, causing it to fall and shatter.
“I’m Ke’er, but I’m also Xia Ning Xue. If I were only Ke’er, perhaps, I wouldn’t be wary of you. However, as the Young Miss of the Xia clan who has seen how treacherous humans could be, how could I trust you so easily?” Ke’er said as she looked at the shards of ice on the ground coldly. Then, she looked outside and murmured, “Brother Tian, please take care of yourself. My love for you hasn’t changed, but I have changed. I can now take care of myself so you don’t have to worry about me anymore…”
