Even though he was embarrassed, Chen Xi was still extremely happy in his heart because of the favor and appreciation of these three Immortal Kings. He was able to clearly sense that after they experienced that shocking unexpected event, the relationship between them had grown a step closer.
There was a little bit less courtesy from before and a little bit more of a true friendly relationship.
This was the thing that made Chen Xi the happiest.
“A great disturbance just occurred here. Thus, in order to avoid any mishaps from occurring, we should first find a secluded place to rest and reorganize, and it wouldn’t be too late for us to set out after that.” After they asked about Chen Xi briefly and found out that he was fine, Shi Yu immediately decided.
Obviously, after they experienced the unexpected event from before, it caused Shi Yu to realize that ensuring their safety was the first priority in this God Attainment Region that was filled with danger.
As for the fortune that lay within the God Attainment Altar, it was sufficient if they tried their best to obtain it, and they absolutely couldn’t lose their lives just for the sake of a fortuitous encounter because it wouldn’t be worth it.
Everyone immediately flashed and left under Shi Yu’s lead.
After the time for an incense stick to burn, they arrived on a mass of land that floated in the boundless space, and they descended into a quiet and secluded gorge.
Shi Yu flicked his sleeve, causing the Five Color Rock to transform into a screen of light that completely enveloped the gorge, and then its glow was restrained before it fell into silence.
When looked at from outside, the gorge was still that same gorge, yet the auras of Shi Yu and the others had been completely concealed. Moreover, if any unexpected event occurred, then the Five Color Rock would form a restriction that protected them, so it couldn’t be any safer.
After he finished doing all of this, Shi Yu heaved a sigh of relief. In the battle just now, he’d more or less suffered some injuries, and he needed a period of time to recover. At this moment, their safety was naturally the most important.
After all, this was a region called the Immortal King Burial, and it was filled with all sorts of dangers. So no one dared to let down their guards while they recovered their injuries here.
However, before recovering, Shi Yu flicked his sleeve and withdrew a pile of Daospirit Pearls. He divided them into four portions of over a thousand each before he distributed them to himself, Xiangliu Li, Dian Dian, and Chen Xi.
These were from the Ancient Bloodgod Corpses that they’d killed earlier. Besides these, there were another four more pearls than were shaped like hearts, and they were completely suffused with an obscure aura. They were called Immortal King Saint Hearts. They contained the essence of an Ancient Immortal King Corpse’s cultivation, and he distributed them as well.
To existences at the Immortal King Realm like Shi Yu and the others, over a thousand Daospirit Pearls and a Immortal King Saint Heart couldn’t be considered to be a great deal of wealth.
However, it was simply an extraordinary fortune to Chen Xi!
No matter if it was the Daospirit Pearls or the Immortal King Saint Heart, it was an irresistible temptation to existences at the Half-step Immortal King Realm. If Chen Xi said that he intended to sell these treasures, then it would absolutely draw over a huge crowd of Half-step Immortal Kings that would bid to obtain it!
The reason was that this treasure was required for one’s cultivation in the Immortal King Realm, and because it was too supreme, it was priceless and could only be chanced upon by luck!
However, Chen Xi was speechless because these treasures hadn’t even gotten warm in his hands before they were once more taken away by the River Diagram fragments, and it didn’t even leave one behind for him…
That was over a thousand Daospirit Pearls and an Immortal King Saint Heart! At this moment, the corners of Chen Xi’s mouth couldn’t help but twitch without end, and he felt a trace of pain from this loss.
He originally thought that even if he had no use of these treasures, he could take it back to the academy and utilize it as gifts to further improve the friendship between him and those seniors at the Half-step Immortal King Realm in the academy. Yet never had he expected… that it would vanish in the blink of an eye.
This naturally caused Chen Xi to be rather depressed.
Fortunately, Dian Dian gave Chen Xi a pleasant surprise.
When Shi Yu and Xiangliu Li had successively started to meditate and recover, Dian Dian called Chen Xi over to the side before she pushed a jade box into his hands.
“The River Diagram fragment is inside here. In any case, it’s useless in my possession, so it’s better to give it to you beforehand.” Dian Dian smiled as she spoke via voice transmission, and her clear eyes shone as she smiled sweetly.
Chen Xi was stunned and said, “I don’t seem to have done much in this trip…”
Dian Dian interrupted him and said, “You’ve already saved us once. Not to mention that it’ll be yours sooner or later.”
Chen Xi frowned and pondered deeply, and he was silent for a long time before asked. “Then…can I know why you brought a Golden Immortal like me along this time?”
Dian Dian combed the strand of hair at the side of her fair ear, and her clear eyes flowed with light as she chuckled. “I knew you wouldn’t be able to resist.”
When she spoke up to here, she tilted her head and thought for a moment before she said, “Actually, I didn’t know you well before this. At the very most, I’d only heard that there was a number one expert amongst the new students in Dao Emperor Academy called Chen Xi. But later on, someone came to Midnight Continent to look for me and asked me to hand over the River Diagram fragment in my possession, and the price was…she promised that I would definitely be able to find the technique to attain the Dao and become a god!”
“You agreed just like that?” Chen Xi couldn’t refrain himself from asking this question, and he’d faintly guessed who the person Dian Dian mentioned was.
“That’s the secret to becoming a god. Can any Immortal King in the three dimensions refuse it?” Dian Dian hugged her knees as she sat on the grass at the side, and she stared extremely far into space while she smiled lightly. “Not to mention that exchanging a River Diagram fragment for the secret to becoming a god was definitely worth it.”
“Weren’t you worried that you were deceived?” Chen Xi couldn’t refrain himself once more, and he was slightly unable to understand her thoughts.
“Do you think she would deceive me?” asked Dian Dian with a smile.
Chen Xi didn’t answer her directly, and he just sighed. “After that, you came looking for me? And you took me to be the critical factor for you to find the method to become a god?”
Dian Dian nodded as a matter of course. “Of course, she’s your Little Senior Sister, so she naturally wouldn’t deceive me.”
Chen Xi laughed bitterly and rubbed his nose. He finally understood the reason for all of this.
All of this was naturally done by his Senior Sister Li Yang. Because of the River Diagram fragments, she’d first gone to see Dian Dian, and then utilized the secret of attaining the Dao and becoming a god to make a trade with Dian Dian, whereas the key to the whole trade was him.
Once the trade was completed, Dian Dian would be able to obtain the secret to becoming a god, and he would be able to obtain the River Diagram fragment, so it could be considered as a win-win.
But the main point is…on what basis would Senior Sister Li Yang be so sure that I would definitely be able to help Dian Dian find the technique to attain the Dao and become a god?
After all, I haven’t even heard of the God Attainment Region before this!
Yet it just so happened that Dian Dian believed her and came looking for me, and she brought me along to the God Attainment Region…
In Chen Xi’s opinion, all of this was filled with uncertainty. Especially when he saw that an Immortal King like Dian Dian seemed to be completely confident in him, and it caused Chen Xi to feel a mountain of pressure pressing down upon him.
Chen Xi pondered for a long time and couldn’t refrain himself. “What if…”
“There are no what ifs. Do your best and leave it up to fate.” Dian Dian directly smiled and interrupted him. “Not to mention that if it’s in terms of understanding towards the secrets of the heavens, then your Oracle Mountain is number one in the three dimensions.” This time, she didn’t conceal the words Oracle Mountain!
Chen Xi laughed bitterly, and he didn’t know if he should feel fortunate or helpless that an Immortal King trusted him to such an extent.
I wonder what Senior Sister was thinking, she didn’t even notify me beforehand… Chen Xi sighed in his heart, and then he immediately stopped thinking about it.
Since he’d started cultivating until now, his Senior Sister Li Yang had helped him on more than one occasion. Moreover, every single time she acted, it carried deep meaning, and it caused Chen Xi to firmly believe that his Senior Sister was definitely acting for his own good and wouldn’t make him fall into danger.
“Meditate at ease, youngest junior brother of Oracle Mountain. Even I don’t feel really pressured, so you don’t have to bear any burdens.” Dian Dian stood up and grinned as she teased Chen Xi, and then she returned to the side and started to meditate and recover.
She’d helped Chen Xi ward off a lethal attack in the Nine Heaven Calamity Dao Annihilation Divine Formation earlier, and the injuries she suffered were even more severe than Shi Yu and Xiangliu Li. At this moment, she had to make the best use of her time and recover.
Nevermind, I’ll take it step by step. Chen Xi took a deep breath and discarded all the distracting thoughts in his mind, and then he immediately found a secluded place to sit down cross-legged on.
He opened up the jade box carefully to reveal an irregular shaped River Diagram fragment laying silently in the box, and it emanated an ancient and primitive aura.
This is the sixth River Diagram fragment I’ve seen, what sort of pleasant surprise will it bring me this time?
At this moment, Chen Xi’s eyes gradually started burning with anticipation. When his hand had just touched the River Diagram fragment in the jade box, a strange droning fluctuation arose in his sea of consciousness, and then it had already taken the River Diagram fragment in the jade box.
In an instant, the River Diagram fragments in his sea of consciousness fused together, and they suddenly emanated a powerful and ancient aura that covered Chen Xi’s sea of consciousness before erupting within his mind.
Various obscure and mysterious diagrams and markings flashed within his mind with shocking speed.
In an instant, it was as if he’d experienced the passage of a myriad of years.
The world grew and fell, everything in the world withered and flourished, time passed, generations rose and fell…. The scenes of the worlds within the chaotic universe were revealed and produced in an unbelievable manner within his mind.
It felt as if he’d experienced a myriad of different types of lives in an instant. The vast and powerful experiences he’d obtained even caused Chen Xi to feel as if he was on the verge of exploding.
Chen Xi’s mind went blank, and he completely lost his senses.
All of this occurred within his sea of consciousness. From the outside, he was sitting cross-legged with a tranquil expression, and his breathing was long and continuous. He was like a clay statue, and there wasn’t anything strange about him.
In this way, he didn’t draw the attention of the three Immortal Kings in the vicinity.
Thump! Thump! Thump!
After an unknown period of time that felt as if he’d been slumbering for countless years, yet felt like he’d just dozed off at the same time, a powerful rumbling sound resounded within Chen Xi’s sea of consciousness.
The sound was extremely rhythmic, wonderful, and indescribable. It seemed as if a life was being born.
Right at this moment that Chen Xi was stunned, he felt rumbling echo within him. Within his Dao Heart, it seemed like the scene of the formation of the world when the chaos was split apart, and the rumble of spring thunder resounded while his Heart Energy surged out like an erupting volcano.
It was surging!
It was so exuberant!
It was seething!
It dyed his entire Dao Heart in a bright golden and translucent color!
After that, Chen Xi noticed a scene that caused his mouth to open wide with shock.
