The morning sun was rising high into the sky while emanating boundless golden radiance.
A vast and spacious square within the Chen Clan Estate was jam-packed with a swarm of people.
Today, all the disciples of the Chen Clan had gathered here, and it was for the sake of witnessing the elegant demeanor of the legendary figure in their hearts, Chen Xi!
The dense crowd on the square seethed with excitement. Even though there were many people, it was extremely silent, perfectly silent, and everyone was waiting with anticipation.
These disciples of the Chen Clan had mostly changed their surnames to Chen, and there were merely a few that could be considered as true direct line disciples. They could be counted on one’s fingers.
However, they were already surnamed Chen after all. So the treatment they received in the clan was naturally completely different, thus they had a natural sense of belonging to the Chen Clan.
When the sun rose high up into the sky, Chen Xi’s figure appeared out of thin air. He swiftly appeared on a flat platform at the front of the square, and his figure was tall, handsome, and possessed an extraordinary bearing. As soon as he appeared, he instantly drew over the gazes of everyone.
In an instant, a wisp of undisguisable excitement, joy, admiration, and respect surged out from the hearts of all the Chen Clan disciples, and it was like they’d witnessed the arrival of a god.
On the other hand, Chen Xi stood on the flat platform as he gazes down at the thousands of clansmen on the square before him, and then a wisp of an emotional sigh couldn’t help but surge from his heart. These are all the future hope of my Chen Clan!
He didn’t say anything and just gazed silently at the Chen Clansmen. His gaze was clear and calm, and he seemed as if he intended to imprint the appearance every single clansman into his heart.
On the other hand, all those Chen Clansmen that were swept by his gaze puffed up their chests, and they seemed like soldiers that were being reviewed by their general and had a fervent and respectful expression.
“Tell me your names. When we meet next, I definitely won’t forget any one of you.” After a long time, Chen Xi spoke indifferently.
Everyone was stunned because no one had expected that the first thing Chen Xi said would actually be such a request.
The hearts of many disciples felt warm.
What did this mean?
It meant their Ancestor Chen Xi wouldn’t neglect a single one of them!
“Ancestor, I’m Chen Yuncong!”
“I’m Chen Mulin!”
One of them started, and then wave after wave of voices instantly resounded from the square. These voices rose and fell, and they didn’t calm down for a long time.
During this entire process, Chen Xi committed their names and appearances to memory. With his current cultivation, remember some things was simply as easy as flipping his own hand, it was easier than drinking water.
“Good, I’ve remembered all of you. You’re Chen Yuncong, the first to speak his name, your courage deserves compliment. You’re Chen Xueting, your voice was the loudest. You’re…” Chen Xi smiled and started to speak the names of those disciples as if it was for the sake of proving his words.
After a long time, he took a deep breath and said, “The reason I did this is because I wanted to tell everyone, as a disciple of the Chen Clan, all of you carry the heavy responsibilities of the clan on your shoulders. Every single one of you is a part of the Chen Clan, so our Chen Clan will naturally not neglect any one of you!”
He paused for a moment and continued. “Similarly, I, Chen Xi, won’t overlook any one of you, and there’s only a single reason for this, all of you are the hope of the entire clan!”
His voice was clear and resounding like the morning bell, and it resounded in the hearts of every single Chen Clan disciple, causing them to arouse a wisp of excitement, joy, and a strong sense of belonging from being acknowledged.
“We’ll remember Ancestor Chen Xi’s teachings!” A disciple of the Chen Clan had a flushed face as he shouted loudly.
“We’ll remember Ancestor Chen Xi’s teachings!” The other disciples of the Chen Clan spoke in unison, and their voices shook the nine heavens.
In the distance, Chen Hao and Fei Lengcui both felt extremely gratified when they saw this. The strength of the clan really can’t rely solely on Big Brother to be upheld, and it relies on every single Chen Clan disciple working hard and protecting it!
On the flat platform, Chen Xi flicked his sleeve, and then a strand of terrifying Immortal Energy fluctuation shot into the sky before it transformed into a golden rain of Immortal Energy that rained down.
The rain was fine and continuous as it rained down through the heavens and the earth, and it enveloped the entire square.
It was the purest Immortal Energy that came from within Chen Xi’s body and the Dark Parasol Sapling. Similarly, it was a form of gift from Chen Xi to the disciples of the clan.
“My god! What sort of energy is this? It’s so lofty?”
“Immortal Energy! It’s definitely Immortal Energy!”
The golden rain of Immortal Energy poured down and enveloped every single Chen Clan disciple, causing them to instantly sense a pure, warm, and supreme energy surge within their bodies, and all of them were shocked to the point of crying out involuntarily.
“Quickly sit down cross-legged and absorb it while meditating!” Chen Hao couldn’t help but shout loudly from afar when he saw this scene.
All of the Chen Clan disciples seemed as if they’d awakened from a dream, and all of them sat down cross-legged before they started regulating their breathing and meditating.
At this moment, Chen Xi had already swiftly left the flat platform.
“I have to make a trip to the island at the center of the lake. If An’er returns, then ask him to meet me there.” Chen Xi instructed Chen Hao.
“Big Brother, Senior Ji Yu…is really going to leave?” Chen Hao nodded, and then he couldn’t refrain himself from asking this question.
In these past few years, he’d been constantly cultivating by Ji Yu’s side and received a great deal of benefits from it. He’d long since taken Ji Yu to be his Master. Now, when he heard from Chen Xi that Ji Yu was about to leave, he was naturally reluctant to part with Ji Yu.
Chen Xi patted Chen Hao on the shoulder. “Don’t worry, you’ll have the chance to meet him in the future. Besides that, don’t tell anyone about my intention to take Ancient Hall away, so as to avoid it causing panic.”
Chen Hao took a deep breath and nodded with agreement.
Chen Xi smiled, and then he placed his hands behind his back before he flew off in the sky.
The depths of the Southern Barbaric Mountain Range, the island at the center of the lake.
“Once you do this, all the cultivators in Ancient Hall won’t be able to sense the aura of the Heaven Dao any longer. In this way, they would be unable to overcome the tribulation and enter the Immortal Dimension.” When he found out that Chen Xi intended to take action three days from now and place the entire minor world into the Nine Continent Divine Cauldrons, Ji Yu couldn’t help but remind Chen Xi.
“I understand. However, the upheaval of the three dimensions is about to arrive, and I intend to release Ancient Hall after the upheaval of the three dimensions ends. In this way, I can help them avoid all sorts of disasters.” Chen Xi pondered deeply before he said, “Moreover, these cultivators don’t lack this bit of time. After the upheaval of the three dimensions passes, they can feel free to charge into the Heavenly Immortal Realm.”
Ji Yu nodded and said, “This isn’t a bad method in the end.”
“Martial Uncle Ji Yu, do you really not intend to return to the Immortal Dimension with me?” Chen Xi couldn’t help but ask once more.
Ji Yu didn’t say anything and just shook his head.
Chen Xi couldn’t help but feel a slight sense of loss in his heart, and he was stunned speechless for some time.
“After you return to the Immortal Dimension, make the best use of your time to cultivate. Your current cultivation at the Saint Immortal Realm isn’t sufficient before the upheaval of the three dimensions.” Ji Yu smiled as he glanced at Chen Xi.
Chen Xi rubbed his nose and couldn’t help but smile. He suddenly recalled that when he cultivated by Ji Yu’s side all those years ago, no matter what sort of accomplishments he attained, Ji Yu would always shake his head and speak such words.
One day later, a wave of warped fluctuation arose in the space above the island. After that, two figures appeared. It was a man and a woman. The man had a rather tall and handsome appearance. He had slanted brows, starry eyes, red lips, white teeth, and a handsome and tranquil appearance. Every single move he made carried a composed aura.
The woman had a pretty appearance and a warm bearing. She wore a light violet long dress that brought out the gracefulness in her slender figure while her soft jet black hair was coiled into a bun. She had dream-like starry eyes, ink black brows, puckered lips that were red like roses, and she seemed to be nervous and reserved.
“Don’t be nervous, my father isn’t a devil.” The man glanced at his wife and couldn’t help but reveal a warm smile.
“I… It’s just the first time I’m meeting Father, and I can’t avoid…feeling perturbed.” The woman lowered her head in embarrassment and spoke softly like a mosquito.
This man and woman were naturally Chen An and his wife, Wei Zitong.
Wei Zitong was a disciple of the Dark Reverie’s Nine Radiance Sword Sect, so her understanding of Chen Xi was naturally even clearer than others, and she had a deeper understanding of how terrifying Chen Xi’s reputation was.
In the hearts of the disciples of the Nine Radiance Sword Sect, Chen Xi was like a legend, and his reputation was so great that it surpassed the current Sect Master, Wen Huating, and the other seniors of the sect.
As a disciple of the Nine Radiance Sword Sect, Wei Zitong was about to meet this legendary ‘Father’ of hers, so she couldn’t help but feel perturbed.
Chen An said in his heart, “If you’re allowed to meet my mother, then that would truly be scary.”
“An’er!” Right at this moment, a clear voice resounded. Chen Xi arrived swiftly, and he smiled as he looked at Chen An and Wei Zitong.
“Father!!” Chen An seemed to be composed, yet he was actually rather excited. However, he’d been forcefully suppressing it. At this moment, when he saw his father, Chen Xi, appear, these sort of feelings were impossible to restrain any longer, and he instantly cried out with excitement.
Chen Xi walked forward and hugged Chen An, and he sighed with emotion in his heart. This kid has finally grown up now.
After that, his gaze looked towards Wei Zitong that stood at the side, and he said with a smile, “This is Zitong, right?”
Wei Zitong’s mind was dazed since the moment she laid eyes of Chen Xi, and she was perturbed and nervous to the extreme. She stood stunned on the spot, and it was to the point that she actually didn’t react when Chen Xi asked her a question.
Chen An couldn’t help but be amused in his heart when he saw his wife’s embarrassing appearance, and he hurriedly said, “Zitong, quickly greet Father!”
“Zitong greets Father. I hope Father can forgive me for my impoliteness from before.” Wei Zitong seemed as if she’d awakened from a dream, and she hurriedly bowed to greet Chen Xi.
Chen Xi had noticed that this young lady was rather nervous, so he didn’t feel that she was impolite. He waved his hand and said, “You’re An’er’s wife, then you’re my daughter-in-law. There’s no need to be nervous.”
As he spoke, he led Chen An and Wei Zitong towards the house on the island.
When father and son met, there was naturally no barrier between them. Their family drank tea and chatted in the house, and joy overflowed as they spoke about everything that they’d encountered in these past few years.
At the side, Wei Zitong gradually calmed down and wasn’t nervous any longer.
When it was almost night, Chen Xi called Chen Hao, Fei Lengcui, Chen Yu, Yue Wenting, Chen Yunyun, and Chen Baobao over, and their entire family had a reunion dinner with Ji Yu.
The room was naturally extremely buzzling. However, when the feast was about to end, Chen Xi inadvertently thought about his mother and Qing Xiuyi, and he couldn’t help but have a trace of regret in his heart.
Perhaps when we meet again, my entire family will definitely be able to reunite? Chen Xi muttered in his heart before finishing the wine in his cup.
