Chapter 1454 Overcoming The Shackles On His Heart

Pu! Pu! Pu!

Hot and scarlet red blood sprayed throughout the air, and it dyed the sky red.

There were no miserable and shrill cries before death, nor were there furious and resenting curses, and there weren’t even words of torture or humiliation resounding through the air. From the beginning until the end, there was only the oppressive sound of slaughter.

Heads were reaped with decisive and direct attacks!

The oppressive sounds were sounds created when the blade sliced through bone and flesh while Chen Xi reaped their heads, and it caused others to feel a chill run down their spines when they heard this.

Chen Xi seemed to be extremely silent and indifferent towards all of this.

At this moment, he seemed to have transformed into a merciless and emotionless god of death, and he reaped the lives of others in a precise and ruthless manner in order to vent the hatred in his heart.

The Iris Desert had experienced a few days of world shocking battles, and it had been transformed into ruins long ago. It was covered in desolation while the heavens and the earth were covered in bloodstains, and the entire surroundings were filled with damaged corpses, wrecked treasures, space and time that were in disorder, and the chaotic aftermath of war…

Amidst such a background that seemed like purgatory, Chen Xi’s current method of killing was clearly so calm and silent, yet when it entered into the eyes of others, it caused all sorts of complicated feelings to arise in their hearts, and they felt their hairs stand on end from terror.

At this moment, Chen Xi seemed to be so unfamiliar to them!

“Alas!” Zuoqiu Feiming sighed and couldn’t bear to watch.

At his side, the other eight elders of the Zuoqiu Clan were the same as well, and they had gloomy expressions.

This scene was too horrifying. It was an utter slaughter, and the people that were being slaughtered were their own clansmen. Even if Zuoqiu Feiming had ceased to acknowledge them to be his clansmen long ago, the same bloodline still flowed in their bodies after all.

At this moment, when he saw Chen Xi kill these clansmen in such a cold and bloody manner, his heart couldn’t help but hurt, and he wasn’t willing to continue watching.

They were very clearly aware that it wasn’t worth for them to pity Zuoqiu Feng and the others at this moment because if it wasn’t for the arrival of Chen Xi and the others, then they would have been killed by Zuoqiu Feng.

If that happened, would Zuoqiu Feng and the others not be able bear it?

All of this was something that was predetermined a long time ago, and it could only be ended with death!

“The hatred in this kid’s heart is too strong. I wonder how he restrained it all these years that inner demons actually didn’t invade his heart, causing his disposition to change greatly. It truly is rare.” Xuanyuan Shao was shocked in his heart as well. The methods Chen Xi revealed at this moment were too calm and indifferent, and it was precisely because of this that the visual impact it gave everyone was the most shocking.

Since Xuanyuan Shao started cultivating until now, he’d seen countless ruthless murderers that were perverted, cruel, and slaughtered madly, yet it was still the first time he’d seen someone that was calm and silent like Chen Xi.

If it was another person who had accumulated so much hatred in their heart, that person’s disposition would have probably changed greatly a long time ago. Yet it just so happened that Chen Xi’s Dao Heart was pure, and it didn’t contain any inner demons at all.

Such comparison brought great shock to Xuanyuan Shao.

At the same, Xuanyuan Fengchen and Xuanyuan Tabei nodded as well, and they deeply agreed with Xuanyuan Shao.

“Not shackled by hatred and not going against the Dao Heart because of hatred. Isn’t this very good?” Midnight Immortal King expressed disapproval. She’d similarly witnessed countless moments of life and death, and she witnessed numerous great figures destroying the surroundings, slaughtering cities, and annihilating countless innocent living beings because a moment of anger.

Comparatively speaking, Chen Xi was only taking revenge now, and merely his methods were slightly unusual. Compared to those vicious villains that slaughtered madly, this was nothing.

Hua Jiankong puckered his lips and kept silent, yet the gaze he shot at Chen Xi faintly carried a complicated expression of admiration. He has such deep hatred buried in his heart, yet he was actually able to prevent his Dao Heart from falling to inner demons. Compared to him, the me from all those years ago was really slightly inferior.

Zhao Taici, Ao Jiuhui, and Chi Cangsheng didn’t speak at all, and they just watched the scene before them. They were rather moved in their hearts as well, and a thought arose simultaneously in their minds. If anyone becomes enemies with this little fellow in the future, then the consequences will be unimaginable.

“The situation is slightly off.” Suddenly, Zhao Taici spoke with a focused gaze.

“Indeed.” Ao Jiuhui and Chi Cangsheng seemed to have noticed it a long time ago, and they exchanged glances before they started raising their guards towards the surroundings.

It wasn’t just them. At this moment, a trace of a bad feeling faintly arose in the hearts of Hua Jiankong and the others as well.

The reason was extremely simple, the atmosphere was too calm!

Since the moment Wei Xing and the other members of the Sovereign Sect were annihilated and until Chen Xi took revenge himself, everything in the heavens and the earth had actually fallen into a strange deathly silent state during this entire process.

Originally, Zhao Taici and the others expected that Zuoqiu Beiyong and Zuoqiu Lenghua would make an appearance, yet from the beginning until the end, they showed no signs of making an appearance.

Could it be that they already intended to abandon Zuoqiu Feng’s faction?

The matter probably won’t be so simple!

Zhao Taici and the others were very clearly aware that this internal strife of the Zuoqiu Clan seemed to be an internal matter, yet in actuality, the destruction it caused had long since affected the entirety of Iris Continent. Now, it was even the center of attention of the entire world.

After all, the Zuoqiu Clan was one of the seven great ancient clans, and its resources and reserves were ancient and deep. Once an internal strife erupted in such a power, the impact it had on the entire Immortal Dimension was obvious.

Moreover, the interference of the forces of the Sovereign Sect caused this internal strife of the Zuoqiu Clan to be covered in a strange aura. So long as it was someone that was observant, that person would notice that this battle might even affect the situation in the entire Immortal Dimension.

Yet now, the Sovereign Sect hadn’t made any move for so long after it lost nine Core Pawns at the Immortal King Realm and seventy Half-step Immortal Kings. It was even to the extent that it seemed like the Sovereign Sect had forgotten this matter, and this in itself seemed to be slightly unusual.

Nine Immortal Kings had been killed!

Even if the Sovereign Sect was one of the supreme sects in the three dimensions, such losses could still be considered as enormous!

So how could they possibly let the matter go?

Of course, it was also possible that the Sovereign Sect felt nine Immortal Kings were sufficient to help Zuoqiu Feng deal with all obstructions within the Zuoqiu Clan.

But since the Sovereign Sect had exhausted such great efforts, how could it be merely for the sake of kindheartedly assisting the Zuoqiu Clan?

Obviously, it was impossible. The Sovereign Sect was definitely seizing this opportunity to carry out some sort of scheme! Moreover, it was an enormous scheme!

“Everyone, be careful and prepare yourselves. With my ability of deduction, I’m merely able to notice that the workings of the heavens are fluctuating strangely today, and scenes of chaos are surging. Even though I’m unable to deduce any signs, yet it causes my heart to palpitate slightly. This isn’t a good sign at all.” Zhao Taici looked up at the sky while her expression gradually became serious. Her clear eyes seemed electrifying while two golden glows formed from divine flames surged out from them, and she seemed to intend to see through all the secrets of the world.

“Exactly. In my opinion, the workings of the heavens faintly show signs of being controlled by someone today. If it’s really like that, then it’s probably that a great figure of an even higher realm has interfered in this matter today…” Ao Jiuhui spoke in a low voice, and his aged face was suffused with a wisp of a solemn expression!

The hearts of everyone shook when they heard this. Even two existences at the Godrank Realm were unable to deduce anything. Could it be that some other calamity is descending today?

While the others were lost in thought, Chen Xi had already arrived before Zuoqiu Feng. This time, his actions finally stopped for an instant.

He carried a string of bloody heads in his hand, and he dragged on the ground beside him. There were more than twenty of them, and the expressions their owners had before death still remained on their faces. It was either terror, fury, resentment, release, unwillingness, ferociousness…

But all of this was unable to cause a trace of change on Chen Xi’s calm and indifferent face.

At this moment, as he gazed at Zuoqiu Feng that was motionless like a stone statue, and as he gazed at the terror, fury, despair, and resentment in Zuoqiu Feng’s eyes, Chen Xi didn’t say anything in the end and raised his hand before his sword descended!

Pu!

Zuoqiu Feng’s head was chopped off, causing a fountain of blood to spray out while his headless corpse crashed to the ground.

This Patriarch of the Zuoqiu Clan, this Immortal King that possessed monstrous authority in the Immortal Dimension, this existence…that was Chen Xi’s Uncle in name had perished on the spot!

At this point, all the higher-ups of the Zuoqiu Clan led by Zuoqiu Feng had been annihilated.

However, even at this moment, Chen Xi still didn’t reveal any emotion because of this. He still strung up Zuoqiu Feng’s head along with the other heads, and his palm was strong and firm while his actions were meticulous.

It felt like an old craftsman was weaving a rope to tie up goods, and his expression was concentrated and serious.

Since I could remember, I’ve been carrying a shackle on me, and it was heavy to the point it was even difficult for me to take a step.

I didn’t dare to slack off in the slightest because I knew that others could be forgiven if they slacked off, yet I couldn’t. If I slacked off slightly, then it would mean that I’d be slightly closer to despair and death because this shackle on me was too heavy! It was even to the extent that I didn’t dare allow my younger brother to bear it along with me…

As he carefully put away the string of heads in his hand, Chen Xi muttered in his heart.

All of you are the great figures of the Immortal Dimension. You can take all living beings to be ants, and a single thought of yours can decide the fate of countless people. Not to mention that all those years ago, I was merely a jinx at a remote little city in the Mortal Dimension. I wasn’t even comparable to an ant… So all of you would probably be unable to understand the pain and hatred in my heart. Since you don’t understand it, then why should I waste my breath?

This is hatred, and the only reason I cultivated at the beginning was merely for the sake of taking revenge. Yet now…it isn’t any longer.

In my opinion, there are many ways to take revenge. For example, crippling all your cultivations and reducing all of you to slaves in the mines, causing all of you to be unable to ever hold your heads up high. Or for example, extracting all of you souls and utilizing all sort of methods to torture all of you all day and night, causing all of you to be unable to live or die forever…

But in the end, all of this isn’t as relieving as killing you. So all of you can only die.

The mutters in his heart seemed to be very calm. There was no powerful resolution, and he was merely describing a fact. During this entire process, Chen Xi had already put away that string of heads, and once he returned to Dao Emperor Academy, he would send it into Pine Mist City within the Nine Continent Divine Cauldrons to hold a memorial for those clansmen of the Chen Clan that had perished all those years ago.

On the other hand, after he finished doing all of this, it seemed like a shackle in the depths of his Dao Heart had been completely broken, allowing his entire body to feel unprecedentedly relaxed from the inside out.

It seemed as if at this moment, his life had walked out from the darkness, and it was bathed in light. His entire body seemed to have undergone a transformation, let a phoenix reborn from the ashes, and he’d gained new life!

It was like the shackles had burdened and tortured him throughout the first half of his life, yet his Dao Heart hadn’t fallen to inner demons, and now that all his enmity had been resolved, his body was remade once more into gold!

Attain enlightenment and instantly attain greatness, lose one’s way and fall into eternal damnation. Good and bad was decided within a single thought, if one could attain enlightenment then one could escape the sea of misery and ascend to greatness!
