Duan Ling Tian further understood the dangers he would face in this place after speaking to Wang Yi Yuan. Even top advanced Supreme Gods could not escape from this place. Those top advanced Supreme Gods who tried to escape were all caught and tortured to death in front of everyone by the Crimson Demon.
‘If this is the Crimson Demon’s Little World, he’ll know about everything that happens here even if the Little World isn’t in his body. Unless I become a supreme powerhouse, it’s impossible to escape from this place.’
In the end, Duan Ling Tian found a place near Wang Yi Yuan’s cultivation ground and made it his cultivation ground. As he looked at Wang Yi Yuan’s retreating back, his expression was grim. With his strength and the help of the Divine Tree of Life and the Five Divine Elements, he was not weaker than the average top advanced Supreme Gods. However, it was useless since even top advanced Supreme Gods could not escape from this place.
Duan Ling Tian could not help but wonder if he could truly escape from this place. In the beginning, he was rather hopeful, but at this moment, he could not help but despair.
After entering the cave he carved out, Duan Ling Tian threw out a Formation compass to isolate the cave before he sat down cross-legged and opened his Little World to speak to the World Cleansing Divine Water, the most knowledgeable one of the Five Divine Elements.
“Sister Water, is there any way for me to escape?”
The World Cleansing Divine Water used to reside in the Divine Tree of Life in his Little World. She had spent a long time with the Divine Tree of Life, and they were like inseparable partners.
According to the World Cleansing Divine Water, when she first started living in the Divine Tree of Life before it was obtained by a supreme powerhouse. At that time, the supreme powerhouse was yet a supreme powerhouse when he obtained the Divine Tree of Life. He only became a supreme powerhouse later on after he obtained the Divine Tree of Life and obtained its help. As such, the World Cleansing Divine Water witnessed his entire journey of becoming a supreme powerhouse.
In terms of judgment and knowledge, the other four Divine Elements could not compare to the World Cleansing Divine Water at all. It was for this reason that the other four Divine Elements treated her like their leader even if their strength now was not inferior to hers.
After listening to Duan Ling Tian’s words, the World Cleansing Divine Water mulled over his words for a moment before she said, “Their speculations are likely correct. The Crimson Demon is likely from one of the clans they spoke about. He should be able to change his soul and possess a body to escape the Heavenly Tribulation that happens once every 10,000 years. However, the success rate is extremely low. The body he possesses has to be very strong and meet strict requirements. The requirements are different from clan to clan. There are quite a few clans in the Myriad Worlds capable of such a feat, and I know about them. Hence, I know the requirements for each clan are different. They depend on the clans’ bloodline powers and traits…”
The World Cleansing Divine Water paused for a moment before she continued to say, “It’s not hard to see that he imprisoned everyone here and tested their strength in a secret realm to find a new body. The last one standing will be his chosen one. However, the requirements can’t be based on just innate talent alone. Otherwise, he would’ve directly chosen you.”
The World Cleansing Divine Water shared similar thoughts with Duan Ling Tian. If it was based on talent alone, there was no need for the Crimson Demon to imprison him here. However, since the Crimson Demon placed him here with the other prodigies, it meant that the Crimson Demon currently viewed him and the other prodigies equally, and they were all still candidates to be selected.
“Sister, is there a way to escape without alerting him?” Duan Ling Tian asked again. What he wanted to do most now was to escape from this place and the Crimson Demon’s control.
“It’ll be very difficult,” the World Cleansing Divine Water said with a sigh, “Even if a supreme powerhouse’s Little World isn’t in his body, he still has a close connection to it. He can easily monitor everything in his Little World. The problem is there are too few people here. For example, the God Defying World, the Little World of a supreme powerhouse, is filled with many people. As such, the supreme powerhouse could not keep an eye on everyone. On the contrary, with how few people here, it’ll be easy for the Crimson Demon to keep an eye on everyone.”
Upon hearing the World Cleansing Divine Water’s words, the spark of hope that appeared in Duan Ling Tian’s heart was quickly extinguished. He muttered, “Things really aren’t simple…”
“However, I said it’s very difficult, not impossible,” the World Cleansing Divine Water said, reigniting Duan Ling Tian’s hope.
“If this is truly the Crimson Demon’s Little World, there must be a Divine Tree of Life in here. Unlike supreme powerhouses, most people don’t have a Divine Tree of Life in their Little Worlds. On the contrary, all supreme powerhouses have a Divine Tree of Life in their respective Little Worlds. For supreme powerhouses who didn’t have a Divine Tree of Life before becoming a supreme powerhouse, once they became a supreme powerhouse, the seed of the Divine Tree of Life will appear in their Little Worlds. It’ll spring from the ground and grow at a rapid speed,” the Cleansing Divine Water said.
“Sister Water, since you mentioned the Divine Tree of Life… Could it be that you want to target his Divine Tree of Life?” Duan Ling Tian asked curiously. He could vaguely hear the implications behind the World Cleansing Divine Water’s words.
“Yes,” the World Cleansing Divine Water replied, “We should start with targeting the Divine Tree of Life in his Little World. We can only hope his Divine Tree of Life has yet to fully mature. Otherwise, it’ll be very difficult for us to target it. If it has matured, unless it’s damaged, it’s impossible for us to target it and leave this place.”
Then, as though she had just recalled something, the World Cleansing Divine Water sighed and said, “If he’s looking for a new body because he doesn’t think he can survive his next Heavenly Tribulation, it means that he’s very old and must have been a supreme powerhouse for a long time now. This means that it’s impossible that his Divine Tree of Life has yet to mature. We can only hope his Divine Tree of Life is damaged when he underwent his previous Heavenly Tribulation. The more damaged his Divine Tree of Life is, the better it’ll be for you.”
“Even then, I’m not completely confident about the success rate of this plan. Even if his Divine Tree of Life is severely damaged, you only have, at most, a 50% success rate. Before he reacts, you have to seize the chance and leave his Little World.”
Duan Ling Tian fell silent when he heard these words. After a while, his eyes shone with determination, and he said through gritted teeth, “A 50% chance isn’t bad. It’s a lot better than not having a chance at all! Sister Water, tell me what I should do next!”
