At this instant, Ling Qingwu and Ye Tang were both shocked. Because in their fields of vision, there was surprisingly a wisp of the light of dusk that tore apart the darkness of the eternal veil of night…
The actual cause of their shock was that this wisp of dusk didn’t come from the heavens, and it came from Chen Xi instead!
At this moment, Chen Xi seemed as if he’d become a completely different person. He was still coughing up blood, his clothes were in rags, and his countenance was ghastly pale and translucent. However, his entire body was suffused with a dense wisp of the aura of dusk. He was like a god that stood within the light of dust, and he revealed a desolate, powerful, and magnificent aura.
In the pool of blood beneath the sky, the bloody glow was surging without end and seemed as if it had been provoked. It surged with an extremely horrifying and terrifying aura, and the figure of the Past Life Combat Puppet could be faintly noticed within it and was gradually floating up into appearance.
However, right at this moment, Chen Xi who stood in midair suddenly raised his eyes, and then he stretched out both his palms before suddenly pressing them down towards the space before him. His movements were extremely smooth and seemed otherworldly.
But along with this casual movement of his, an extremely terrifying energy that was filled with a wisp of the light of dusk rushed towards the pool of blood.
The energy was obscure, icy cold, and seemed like the end of time and the universe. It carried a boundless aura that was sorrowful, powerful, and emanated the feeling that it was impossible for one to stand up once more.
As soon as it appeared, the entire heavens and the earth fell into a motionless state. If the heavens, the earth, time, and space had lives, then at this moment, along with the appearance of this energy, all life seemed to have received judgment and was about to end…
The Terminus Dao Insight — the dusk of all gods!
After dusk was eternal silence and eternal darkness, and it established a new era for the coming dawn!
“This is…” Ling Qingwu and Ye Tang suffered unprecedented shock. They gasped as they exchanged glances, and both of them cried out involuntarily in unison. “The Grand Dao of Terminus!”
With their knowledge, how could they be unable to recognize this energy that was a taboo in the three dimensions?
The core of the cycle of rebirth. Early on in the primeval times, this taboo had caused countless rains of blood. It infuriated all the gods in the world, and in the end, it ended with the death of the Third Netherworld Emperor.
From then onwards, this taboo had been obliterated in the annals of time, and it had never appeared in the world ever again. But never had they imagined that they would actually see dusk being emanated by Chen Xi and sense the energy of this terrifying taboo at this moment!
This obviously showed how great the shock they felt at this moment was.
At practically the exact same moment, in an independent and mysterious space within the depths of Dao Emperor Academy, an emotional sigh suddenly resounded. “After so many years, it has appeared once more… In this time where the upheaval of the three dimensions is about to arrive, it is good or bad exactly?”
The Netherworld, Nether Spring Region.
At the side of a grand hall was a tall platform that towered into the sky. The thin Nether Spring Grand Emperor stood at the edge of the tall platform with his hands behind his back, and he gazed at the boundless world in the distance.
“The Blade of Judgment — Blood Empress? Haha! That little girl from the Cui Clan really is extraordinary. She actually took control of Granny Meng Hall and the Gates of Hell… Unfortunately, she’s still lacking some attainments if she wants to take control of the Six Paths of Hell and suppress the Ten Kings of Hell…” The Nether Spring Grand Emperor couldn’t help but sigh with emotion when he recalled everything that had occurred in the Netherworld during this period of time.
Since King Chu Jiang, King Qin Guang, and King Song Di were killed, the entire Netherworld fell into a great upheaval. The Nether Spring Hall, Granny Meng Hall, Gates of Hell, Six Paths of Hell, Ten Kings of Hell… All the various great powers in the Netherworld engaged in internal strife and entered into a chaotic war, causing the flames of war to rage across the Netherworld while chaos spread throughout the lands.
Even the Blood River Sect that had remained silent for countless years seemed eager to take action and intended to claim a share of the Netherworld.
No one could stop all of this. Unless the Third Netherworld Emperor came back to life, but that was obviously impossible.
“If that Chen Xi was here, then the fame of that little girl from the Cui Clan would probably be inferior to him, right?” The Nether Spring Grand Emperor inadvertently recalled that handsome young man, and for a time, his heart was filled with extremely complicated feelings. Because that young man was the heir of the Third Netherworld Emperor, yet he’d run off to the Immortal Dimension now…
Right at this moment, a strange fluctuation stretched out from within his body, and then the Nether Spring Grand Emperor’s face suddenly froze. He searched carefully and noticed to his shock that it was the Netherworld Register and Condemn Evil Brush that he’d hidden within a secret treasure. After staying deathly silent for many years, they actually emanated a dense wisp of the light of dusk at this moment…
After that it vanished in a flash, and they returned once more to deathly silence.
However, the Nether Spring Grand Emperor had an extremely excited expression, and he slapped the railing on the tall platform as he roared with laughter. “It really has appeared. It really has emerged once more into the world. The Emperor…has a successor!”
At the Past Life Bloodpool.
After countless years of time, it had appeared once more in the world, and it had been executed in one go by Chen Xi to envelop the pool of blood.
In an instant, the originally surging and raging pool of blood was suddenly dyed with a wisp of the color of dusk, and it gradually returned to deathly silence.
On the other hand, the blood glow on the entire body of the Past Life Combat Puppet that was originally about to be revived once more had been shattered into pieces, and then was stripped off from it. In an instant, it transformed into countless pieces of blood that vanished within the pool of blood.
Dusk gradually vanished, and the heavens and the earth returned to being enveloped by the veil of eternal night, whereas the Past Life Bloodpool had similarly returned to deathly silence. When all of this ended, Ling Qingwu and Ye Tang finally recovered from their shock, and they were extremely dazed.
Yes, it was destroyed.
The Past Life Combat Puppet that possessed the might of a Half-step Immortal King had been completely annihilated by the Terminus Dao Insight before it could emerge into the world!
However, Ling Qingwu and Ye Tang were still dazed. The Terminus Dao Insight! Could it be that Chen Xi is…the heir of the Third Netherworld Emperor? If news of this were to be spread, then the consequences would simply be unimaginable!
Chen Xi’s figure shook in midair before it suddenly fell to the ground. He gasped for breath while his countenance was already ghastly pale and translucent to the extreme. His eyes were dim while the space between his brows was suffused with dense exhaustion, and the damaged clothes that covered his entire body were already drenched in cold sweat.
When they saw this scene, Ling Qingwu and Ye Tang finally recovered completely from their shock. They exchanged glances with each other, and then they extremely tacitly avoided mentioning this matter.
“Chen Xi, are you alright?”
“How are you? Can you still hold on?”
Both of them arrived by Chen Xi’s side, and then revealed a wisp of worry when they saw his severely injured figure.
“I’m fine. I can still hold on.” Chen Xi forced out a smile. He was still able to maintain his consciousness, yet he didn’t have the strength to fight any longer. It couldn’t be helped, there wasn’t a single trace of strength left within his entire body that could be squeezed out.
Most importantly, he’d utilized the Terminus Dao Insight earlier, and because he’d exhausted his strength too severely, the vital energy in his entire body had almost collapsed at that instant. So he was already extremely lucky that he was able to survive without any long lasting harm to himself.
When he thought about the Terminus Dao Insight, a wisp of extremely complicated feelings couldn’t help but arise in Chen Xi’s heart.
All those years ago when he was in the Netherworld, he could only traverse the Sea of Bitterness by himself for the sake of rescuing Qing Xiuyi, and he fought King Chu Jiang at the peak of Myriad Flow Mountain. However, he suffered the joint attacks of King Chu Jiang, King Qin Guang, and King Song Di.
At that time, even with the assistance of the Nether Spring Grand Emperor, Chen Xi wasn’t a match for them at all.
But in the end, Chen Xi won instead, whereas King Chu Jiang, King Qin Guang, and King Song Di were mercilessly annihilated.
The reason was that at the critical moment, it was a strand of the Third Netherworld Emperor’s consciousness that made a sudden appearance and relied on the Netherworld Register and Condemn Evil Brush to eliminate Chen Xi’s enemies in one go!
All of this wasn’t the main point, the main point was that strand of the Third Netherworld Emperor’s consciousness had left a brand within Chen Xi before it vanished completely.
That brand was hidden within his sea of consciousness, and it was like a tongue of flame that flickered with the color of dusk.
It was the Terminus Dao Insight!
Comprehending it or not was within a single thought of Chen Xi’s.
At that time, Chen Xi naturally refused.
Moreover, even until he entered the Immortal Dimension, he’d never thought about cultivating it. Because it was a taboo that formed the core profundities of the Samsara Laws. Most importantly, the Terminus Dao Insight aroused the killing intent of the gods in the world, and they crushed the Third Netherworld Emperor in the end.
Under such circumstances, it was utterly impossible for Chen Xi to comprehend such a taboo.
Yet now…for the sake of completely defeating the Past Life Combat Puppet, for the sake of obtaining the Dao Emperor’s inheritance, and for the sake of obtaining the River Diagram fragment, he had no choice but to utilize the Terminus Dao Insight.
Indeed, he’d succeeded in the end, but he couldn’t help but be slightly worried in his heart. What would I do if the experts in the outside world noticed it?
Fortunately, the Nether Immortal’s Coffin has isolated the energy of the Heaven Dao from entering this place, so it’s unable to detect everything that occurred here, otherwise the consequences would be unimaginable… Chen Xi took a deep breath and discarded these distracting thoughts from his mind before he stopped thinking about it. At any rate, it had already occurred, so thinking more about it was useless.
“Wait! Since the Past Life Combat Puppet has been completely defeated, it means that the test has ended, so why has nothing happened at all?” Ye Tang was bewildered and frowned without end as he spoke. “The Past Life Bloodpool is the final test, and one can obtain the Dao Emperor’s inheritance by passing through this test. Yet now, this expanse of the heavens and the earth are deathly silent, and there aren’t any signs of the inheritance appearing. It’s really puzzling indeed.”
“Only less than ten minutes remains before the Ancient Dao Emperor Grounds closes. If we’re still unable to obtain the Dao Emperor’s inheritance, then we would have really achieved nothing this time…” Ling Qingwu’s brows pressed together as well while she spoke.
Chen Xi was similarly stunned, and he was extremely puzzled.
However, right at this moment, a strand of the aura of divinity suddenly effused out from above the sky, and then a mighty figure appeared. His hands were kept behind his back while he stood proudly above the sky, and he was like an overlord beneath the veil of the eternal night.
This figure was extremely blurry, and it was impossible to see its appearance clearly. However, the supreme bearing it emanated caused Chen Xi and the others to instantly feel boundlessly shocked.
Perhaps only a true supreme god possesses such an imposing aura of divinity?
Could it be that he’s one of the five Primeval Emperor, the Dao Emperor?
Especially Chen Xi, as he gazed at the supreme figure above the sky, a trace of a faint feeling of familiarity arose in his heart. It seemed as if he’d met this figure in the past, yet when he looked at it carefully, it was completely blurry and unfamiliar, causing Chen Xi to be utterly unable to determine if he’d met this figure in the past or not.
As for Ling Qingwu and Ye Tang, they were shocked speechless at this moment, and their gazes already carried a wisp of uncontrollable respect and admiration as they looked at that figure.
They were sure that it was the Dao Emperor!
