Chapter 3935: Life-Saving Grace
Duan Ling Tian would not forget the danger he faced during the journey to the Profound Energy Land. At that time, the Five Divine Elements helped him to tear a hole in the space barrier on the Nine Serenities Battlefield. He had yet to attain godhood at that time, and he was clueless when he arrived at the Realm Battlefield. Regardless of the danger, he had to find a way out.
Duan Ling Tian, who was only close to attaining godhood at that time, could be easily killed by a King of Gods or a Lord of Gods. He was on edge the entire time and had felt hopeless until he met a kind old man on the Realm Battlefield. The old man helped Duan Ling Tian by sending him to the nearest base after Duan Ling Tian explained how he had ended up on the Realm Battlefield by mistake. It was due to the old man that he managed to survive the Realm Battlefield.
Duan Ling Tian only knew that the old man’s name was Ye Bei Yuan and that Ye Bei Yuan was from the Glorious Heaven Sect at that time. After coming to the Eastern Ridge Mansion, he slowly learned more about Ye Bei Yuan.
Ye Bei Yuan was the Valley Master of Moon Shadow Valley in the Glorious Heaven Sect. The Glorious Heaven Sect was an emperor-rank force like the Flying Dragon Sect. It did not have any Emperor of Gods in the sect currently.
Duan Ling Tian had thought about going to the Glorious Heaven Sect to repay Ye Bei Yuan’s kindness, but he was as weak as an ant and a nobody at that time. He really did not expect to meet Ye Bei Yuan in the Pure Yang Sect.
“Duan Ling Tian, do you know him?” Zhen Ping Fang asked, slightly surprised. He did not expect Duan Ling Tian would know someone outside of the Flying Dragon Sect.
The middle-aged man with Ye Bei Yuan was also shocked. Similarly, he did not expect to be acquainted with Ye Bei Yuan. Although he did not know Duan Ling Tian, since Duan Ling Tian was with Zhen Ping Fan, he knew Duan Ling Tian was not simple. With this, his attitude toward Ye Bei Yuan changed immediately; he could tell Duan Ling Tian respected Ye Bei Yuan. He smiled sheepishly as he nodded at Duan Ling Tian.
Ye Bei Yuan looked at Duan Ling Tian in shock. After a moment, he said, “Little Tian, it’s you! Y-you, you’re a member of the Pure Yang Sect?”

Duan Ling Tian nodded and smiled. “I wasn’t when we met in the past, but now I am.”
The eyes of the middle-aged man standing in front of Ye Bei Yuan widened slightly. As it turned out, the purple-clad young man in front of him was the monstrous prodigy from the Flying Dragon Sect. No wonder the other party was accompanied by Zhen Ping Fan and Qin Wu Yang.
Since Duan Ling Tian became a rudimentary Lord of Gods and killed two intermediate Lords of Gods, who were death warriors, when they ambushed him, those in the Pure Yang Sect, who were not in closed-door cultivation, had heard about him. Most of them felt that the Flying Dragon Sect had exaggerated the matter. After all, how could an emperor-rank force without Emperors of Gods have such a talent among their ranks?
The middle-aged man had also been skeptical about the news he heard. However, now that he saw Zhen Ping Fan accompanying Duan Ling Tian, he was certain the news was true.
The middle-aged man quickly smiled as he cupped his fists together and bowed before he said, “So, you’re Brother Ling Tian.”
Duan Ling Tian nodded and smiled at the middle-aged man before he looked at Ye Bei Yuan and said to Zhen Ping Fan, “Elder Zhen, this is Ye Bei Yuan, the Valley Master of the Moon Shadow Valley in the Glorious Heaven Sect. He saved me when I ended up on the Realm Battlefield by mistake. At that time, Senior Ye sent me to the nearest base so I could leave the Realm Battlefield. He’s my savior.”
Ye Bei Yuan’s expression was complicated when he looked at Duan Ling Tian. In the past, Duan Ling Tian had not even attained godhood. Not much time had passed, but Duan Ling Tian was already a Lord of Gods. He even began to doubt his memories. After thinking about it, whether Duan Ling Tian was a Pure Yang Sect disciple or not when they met, it was still unbelievable that Duan Ling Tian had become a Lord of Gods in such a short time.
Zhen Ping Fan smiled. “I see. What a coincidence. You managed to meet your savior as soon as you came to the Pure Yang Sect. You’re fated with our Pure Yang Sect. This is definitely an auspicious sign.”
Ye Bei Yuan looked at Zhen Ping Fan and said with a bow, “Ye Bei Yuan from the Glorious Heaven Sect greets Nirvanic Elder Zhen and Spirit Void Elder Qin.”
Ye Bei Yuan knew Qin Wu Yang, but he had only learned about Zhen Ping Fan from the middle-aged man standing in front of him.
Zhen Ping Fan nodded and asked curiously, “What brings you to the Pure Yang Sect?”
Duan Ling Tian looked at Ye Bei Yuan and asked as well, “That’s right, senior. Why are you in the Pure Yang Sect?”
Ye Bei Yuan seemed to struggle with answering Zhen Ping Fan’s question. However, he seemed to be less tense when he heard Duan Ling Tian’s question.
Before Ye Bei Yuan could reply, the middle-aged man took the initiative to say, “Nirvanic Elder, Brother Ling Tian, Valley Master Ye came to ask Young Master Xi Lin to spare his disciple. His disciple offended Young Master Xi Lin and is being imprisoned. It won’t take long before he succumbs…”
The middle-aged man sighed after he finished speaking.
Duan Ling Tian and Qin Wu Yang frowned upon hearing the middle-aged man’s words.
On the other hand, Zhen Ping Fan asked nonchalantly, “How did he offend Xi Lin?”
The middle-aged man subconsciously looked at Ye Bei Yuan before he said, “I don’t know the details. You’ll have to ask Valley Master Ye about this. He came to ask for forgiveness on behalf of his disciple, but Young Master Xi Lin refused him. I was on duty nearby when Elder Liu Hei asked me to kick… send him out…”
After the middle-aged man finished speaking, Ye Bei Yuan looked at Zhen Ping Fan and said respectfully, “Nirvanic Elder Zhen, my disciple took a liking to an item and paid for it with divine crystals. However, before he could take the item, Young Master Xi Lin saw it and took a liking to it as well. My disciple was ignorant and refused to give up the item so he ended up having a conflict with Young Master Xi Lin. I’m sure he’s learned his lesson by now and won’t make the same mistake again. I only hope Young Master Xi Lin would spare his life. However, Young Master Xi Lin said that he would only let him go after he was done toying with him.”
Ye Bei Yuan was clearly trying to suppress his anger when he spoke.
“Is that all?” Zhen Ping Fan expressionlessly.
“Yes.” Ye Bei Yuan nodded. “I won’t dare to lie to you, Nirvanic Elder Zhen.”
Duan Ling Tian’s eyebrows were slightly furrowed. He was displeased when he heard that Xi Lin, a member of the Pure Yang Sect, captured someone back to the Pure Yang Sect to be tortured over a trivial matter. Moreover, it was clear that Xi Lin was in the wrong.
Zhen Ping Fan looked at Ye Bei Yuan and said, “Since you saved Duan Ling Tian’s life, I’ll save your disciple to return the favor. What do you think?”
Duan Ling Tian was surprised. “Elder Zhen…”
Before Duan Ling Tian could say anything else, Ye Bei Yuan said to Zhen Ping Fan, “Nirvanic Elder Zhen, I didn’t expect to be repaid when I helped Little Tian in the past, and I don’t consider myself his savior. However, I’d be indebted to you if you save my disciple. As long as it doesn’t violate my principles, I’m willing to do anything you ask even if it costs me my life.”
After Ye Bei Yuan finished speaking, he bowed deeply at Zhen Ping Fan.
