Immortals and devils flee from it while gods can’t shake it!
This was the Immortal Dimension’s evaluation of Iris Immortal Prison, and it was a renowned prison of the Grand Dao in the Immortal Dimension.
A very long time ago, Chen Xi found out from Bai Wanqing that since his mother, Zuoqiu Xue, was captured and brought back to the Immortal Dimension, she’d always been imprisoned within Iris Immortal Prison.
At the same time, Chen Xi was already clearly aware that a portion of the Zuoqiu Clan’s members were secretly taking care of his mother, so he didn’t have to worry too much about her safety.
However, he wouldn’t be careless because the moment the Xuanyuan Clan announced to the entire Immortal Dimension that it would support him, it would cause the Zuoqiu Clan to react.
Under such circumstances, how could Chen Xi dare to be careless?
His reaction to this was extremely simple. He instructed A’Xiu to help him pay attention to the internal state of the Zuoqiu Clan at all times, and he would immediately take action once an internal conflict occurred!
If that moment really came, then it meant that he would completely declare war with the Zuoqiu Clan!
Of course, Chen Xi could only calm himself and reside within Dao Emperor Academy until that time while making the best use of his time to improve his strength for the sake of preparing to rescue his mother.
A’Xiu left hastily with Chen Xi’s instructions, and only Chen Xi remained within the abode. He took a deep breath and didn’t hesitate at all to turn around and enter the world of stars.
Above the Saint Dao is the Grand Dao of Immortal Kings. If I want to charge into the Half-step Immortal King Realm, then I need to start with the three supreme Grand Daos of time, space, and life and death… Chen Xi sat cross-legged as he thought deeply with his eyes closed. The vast starry sky above him was suffused with piercingly cold starlight, and it was tranquil and calm, whereas his surroundings started to surge with strands of the aura of the Saint Dao, and it was brilliant, blazing, and illuminated the nine heavens.
After he returned from the Mortal Dimension that day, he’d cultivated in the world of stars for fifteen years, and he’d finally completely fused the final Enduring Divine Crest into his Saint Dao and completely established a Talisman Saint Dao of his own!
In other words, merely in terms of cultivation, Chen Xi had already attained a state of perfection in the Saint Immortal Realm, and he’d established and grasped a Saint Dao of his own!
At this moment, every single move he made seemed like a saint had descended to the world, and every single word he spoke was filled with the might to educate. If it was during the primeval times, then it was sufficient for him to start a sect and pass down his Dao throughout the world.
On the other hand, amongst his peers, Chen Xi wasn’t afraid of any opponents any longer. Or to put it more simply, Chen Xi could be considered as an existence that crushed all cultivators at the same realm as him.
This wasn’t exaggerated. After all, his foundation was almost a hundred times deeper than his peers, and he himself grasped the supreme inheritance of the Infinite Divine Talisman from Oracle Mountain and a Sword Dao cultivation that had attained perfection in the Sword God Realm. Now, he’d established a Talisman Saint Dao of his own. When all of this was combined together, it was obvious how extremely formidable his combat strength would be.
Such brilliant combat strength could even be described as unprecedented in the world. However, Chen Xi’s horizons were different now, and he’d long placed his eyes onto the path towards becoming a god, so he naturally wouldn’t be complacent because of this.
At the bottom of it all, in Chen Xi’s current opinion, the Saint Immortal Realm was only the first step towards the path of gods, and there was still the Half-step Immortal King Realm, Immortal King Realm, Godrank Realm, and various other extraordinary peaks to climb.
On the other hand, no matter if it was for the sake of taking revenge on the Zuoqiu Clan or going against the Sovereign Sect, it was impossible for Chen Xi to be satisfied with his current state, and it was even to the extent that his cultivation had become his one and only shortcoming within his plans.
If it wasn’t for that, he would have probably killed his way into the Zuoqiu Clan a long time ago.
Of course, the only thing Chen Xi had to do now was improve his cultivation and charge into the Half-step Immortal King Realm!
The Half-step Immortal King Realm was the divide between the Saint Immortal Realm and the Immortal King Realm, and it seemed to be only half a step away from the Immortal King Realm, yet it couldn’t be compared to the Immortal King Realm at all.
But even then, it wasn’t so easy to advance from the Saint Immortal Realm into the Half-step Immortal King Realm. Conversely, artificial Saint Immortals had no hope of advancing into this realm.
In other words, only natural Saint Immortals had the qualifications to seek the Half-step Immortal King Realm, and the difficulty to accomplish this was extremely great.
The reason was that before one could charge into the Half-step Immortal King Realm, the three enormous mountains of time, space, and life and death stood in one’s path.
Only by comprehending a trace of the profundities of these three supreme Laws and attaining initial proficiency in it would one be able to step past the threshold of the Half-step Immortal King Realm. Otherwise, even if one cultivated bitterly for countless years, one could only remain stuck in the Saint Immortal Realm.
Chen Xi knew nothing about the Temporal Laws, and he similarly knew nothing about the Life and Death Laws.
Chen Xi only had a certain level of attainment in the Spatial Laws. For example, the Spatial Divine Crest he possessed now had already attained the level of Spatial Ripples, and it was sufficient to be compared with Half-step Immortal Kings.
So if Chen Xi wanted to advance into the Half-step Immortal King Realm, then he only had to comprehend the supreme Laws of time and life as well as death in order to break through.
However, even if he only had to comprehend these laws and not grasp them completely, it was absolutely not so easy.
For example, Chen Xi was sitting down cross-legged within the world of stars while ceaselessly deducing his understanding towards time and life and death, yet he wasn’t able to figure anything out. He wasn’t even able to come into contact with the threshold of comprehension, let alone comprehend its profundities.
This won’t do. If this continues, then I’ll just be waiting time for nothing. Not to mention advancing into the Half-step Immortal King Realm within a hundred years, it would be useless no matter how much time I had. After a long time, Chen Xi suddenly opened his eyes while his brows knit together tightly.
In his plans, he had to step foot into the Half-step Immortal King Realm within a hundred years of time.
Because within his deduction, the internal conflict within the Zuoqiu Clan would probably fully erupt within one hundred years of time. Under such circumstances, if he still didn’t advance into the Half-step Immortal King Realm, then even if he was able to rely on the strengths of others to take revenge on the Zuoqiu Clan, he would only be reduced to a spectator and would be utterly unable to participate in it.
That wasn’t something Chen Xi was willing to see happen.
In the end, Chen Xi decided to see the guidance of the seniors in Dao Emperor Academy because trying by himself behind closed doors was really a waste of time.
Dao Emperor Academy, Sword Sharpening Peak.
This was Hua Jiankong’s residence and place of cultivation.
Sword Sharpening Peak was a lone peak that towered into the sky, and it just happened to seem like a peerless sword that pierced the sky. Every single flower, plant, rock, sand…even the air was filled with a strand of dense Sword Insight that was extremely oppressive.
If an ordinary student came here, the student would be utterly unable to take a single step on this peak. It couldn’t be helped, the Sword Insight was too terrifying, so once one trespassed forcefully, it would lead to either injury or death.
“You want to charge into the Half-step Immortal King Realm?” On the peak of Sword Sharpening Peak, Hua Jiankong who sat cross-legged there swiftly stood up and glanced at Chen Xi with surprise.
“Exactly.” Chen Xi nodded. After he decided to seek help, he’d directly left the Sword Room and found this place.
Hua Jiankong had always possessed a reserved and aloof disposition. When Chen Xi came seeking for guidance from him, he didn’t ask why Chen Xi didn’t look for the help of others and chose him instead, nor did he speak about the fact that Chen Xi had just advanced into the Saint Immortal Realm a few years ago. Or perhaps, from the beginning until the end, he didn’t waste his breath at all. After he obtained confirmation from Chen Xi, he said directly, “Come with me.”
He turned around and teleported as soon as he finished speaking.
This sort of decisive style cause Chen Xi to be unable to help but be stunned. After that, he hurriedly chased after Hua Jiankong, yet he couldn’t help but sigh with emotion in his heart. Who said that it isn’t easy to engage with Senior Hua Jiankong? He’s cold on the outside and warm on the inside…
At the same time, at Iris Continent’s Zuoqiu Clan.
“Xuanyuan Clan! For the sake of a damnable bastard, you actually didn’t hesitate to go against my Zuoqiu Clan!” Within a grand hall, Zuoqiu Feng was angered to the point of almost gnashing his teeth into pieces while the jade slip in his hand had even been crushed into powder, and this obviously showed exactly how furious he was at this moment.
“Patriarch, Mr. Wei has arrived.” Right at this moment, an old man that seemed like a manager appeared outside the hall and spoke in a light voice.
Zuoqiu Feng’s eyes narrowed, and then he took a deep breath while his expression instantly recovered its calm. He waved his hand and said, “Quickly invite Mr. Wei in.”
As soon as he finished speaking, Wei Xing that wore a violet robe and had a refined bearing swiftly entered the hall, and he grinned as he said, “Patriarch Zuoqiu is probably so infuriated because you’re vexed by that announcement from the Xuanyuan Clan, right?”
“Hmph! Mr. Wei, could it be that you came to laugh at me?” Zuoqiu Feng grunted coldly.
Wei Xing sat down slowly on a chair at the side, and then he said with a smile, “Patriarch Zuoqiu, you’ve misunderstood. I’ve just so happened to have come here to help the Zuoqiu Clan resolve this problem.”
“Oh? What do you mean?” Zuoqiu Feng glanced at him.
“To tell you the truth, I’ve already convinced a senior in my sect, and I can mobilize some forces to fully support the Zuoqiu Clan to get through this crisis!” Wei Xing was filled with confidence as he said, “So long as the Zuoqiu Clan is willing to continue collaborating with me, then not to mention the Xuanyuan Clan, even if it’s even more powers like the Xuanyuan Clan, it’ll be utterly unable to do anything to us.”
Zuoqiu Feng’s eyes narrowed slightly before it erupted with a bright glow. He stared fixedly at Wei Xing and observed him for a long time before Zuoqiu Feng probed. “Mr. Wei, could it be that the experts of your sect are going to interfere in this matter?”
Wei Xing shook his head. “Patriarch Zuoqiu, there’s no need to keep on guessing. I’ll only ask you a single question, are you willing to collaborate?”
Zuoqiu Feng grunted. “A collaboration is fine. However, I want to know exactly what Mr. Wei’s objective is?”
Wei Xing stuck out a single finger. “I only have a single condition, kill that kid, Chen Xi, within a hundred years of time!”
“That simple?” Zuoqiu Feng’s brows raised.
“To be blunt, if it wasn’t for the sake of killing that kid, Chen Xi, do you think I would take the initiative to seek the cooperation of your Zuoqiu Clan?” Wei Xing spoke slowly.
The meaning behind his words was that no matter how extraordinary the Zuoqiu Clan was, he didn’t take the Zuoqiu Clans seriously, and the only reason he was collaborating with the Zuoqiu Clan was that they both had a common enemy.
These words were blunt indeed, and it caused Zuoqiu Feng’s face to sink slightly. But right after that, he nodded and said, “Alright, I can agree to this condition. However, I advise you that it’s best for you to not try to obtain things that you shouldn’t!”
His words carried a trace of warning, yet Wei Xing seemed as if he hadn’t heard it all. He roared lightheartedly with laughter and said, “Patriarch Zuoqiu’s choice is undoubtedly the best choice.”
As he spoke, he flipped his palm, and an ancient command token appeared there before he said proudly, “I presume that Patriarch Zuoqiu is clearly aware that my sect has positioned many pawns within the Immortal Dimension. Now, these pawns will become our greatest reliance! Let me ask you this. Would the Xuanyuan Clan be anything to be afraid of now?”
Zuoqiu Feng’s spirits were instantly refreshed when he heard these words, and the agitation in his heart was completely wiped away.
