At the instant when Valiant Star Immortal King withdrew the Ancient Dao Inheritance Cauldron, the Nineflow Jade Seal in Chen Xi’s possession fluctuated as well, and it flowed with an auspicious glow as if it was summoning the cauldron.
Chen Xi didn’t make a move to receive the cauldron, and he gazed at the ‘World of Karmic Flames’ instead. The group of Immortal Kings were roaring furiously over there as they fought with all their might, whereas Silent Night Buddhist Master sat cross-legged in a silent and solemn manner while his entire body emanated strands of pure Karmic Flames.
When looked at from afar, his entire body seemed to be burning, and he intended to utilize the flames from his own body to incinerate everything.
“If you continue to hesitate, then not only will Silent Night have sacrificed himself in vain, both of us might perish here as well while Dao Emperor Academy will fall into the hands of others!” Valiant Star Immortal King spoke in a low voice and reminded Chen Xi.
Chen Xi puckered his lips and went silent for a moment. In the end, he withdrew his gaze while he said lightly in his heart, Karma arises from life, and it’s passed down to the next lifetime upon death. It’s impossible to remove. Senior, I’ll completely sever it for you.
After that, he turned around and took the Ancient Dao Inheritance Cauldron in his hand.
A strand of resolute will surged out from Chen Xi’s body, and it transformed into a spirit brand that surged into the cauldron, causing waves of droning to arise.
He was refining this treasure and branding his own will within it, and then it would be equivalent to taking control of it.
A wisp of a gratified expression appeared on Valiant Star Immortal King’s ghastly pale countenance when he saw this. This is the successor chosen by the Dean, and he has even obtained the Dao Emperor’s inheritance. This treasure ought to be possessed by him!
“How audacious! Chen Xi, you’re playing with fire! Quickly put down the Ancient Dao Inheritance Cauldron, otherwise no one in the world will be able to save you!” A furious roar sounded out from within the World of Karmic Flames.
Obviously, someone had noticed all of this.
“Bastard! Bastard! Allowing a fledging little bastard to succeed the position of Dean is simply absurd! Valiant Star Immortal King, Silent Night Buddhist Master…both of you deserve death!” The other Immortal Kings were furious as well, and they executed all their ability to attack the World of Karmic Flames with the intention of charging out from it and killing Chen Xi to stop all of this.
“Buddha be praised!”
Silent Night proclaimed a Buddhist chant once more, and then his entire body started burning. He was enveloped by pure and vast Karmic Flames that emanated a boundless sacred glow before it smashed down fiercely.
Chen Xi watched all of this in a cold and indifferent manner while the aura he emanated grew even stronger. He was making great efforts to refine the Ancient Dao Inheritance Cauldron as boundless energy of Karmic Luck and even strands of terrifying will surged within this treasure.
With Chen Xi’s current cultivation, if it was at an ordinary time, he would at least require ten to fifteen days in order to accomplish it. After all, his cultivation was only at the Half-step Immortal King Realm in the end.
But the current situation was urgent, and it would obviously not give him more time.
“Chen Xi, I’ll leave the academy to you. Don’t feel too pressured, and it’s sufficient to let fate decide everything.” Suddenly, Valiant Star Immortal King raised his head and spoke with a smile on his face, and he seemed to reveal a sense of relief.
Chen Xi’s heart shook fiercely as a bad premonition arose within it, and he blurted out, “Don’t!”
But he was still a step too late. When he finished speaking, Valiant Star Immortal King had already executed some sort of secret technique, causing his entire body to explode into pieces, and then it transformed into a strand of crimson gold colored blood that boiled and gurgled.
This strand of crimson gold blood blazed like the scorching sun, and it contained the Quintessence Energy of Valiant Star Immortal King. It was powerful and vast, and at this moment, it completely surged into the Ancient Dao Inheritance Cauldron.
He’d actually chosen to take his own life and sacrifice his quintessence in order to help Chen Xi completely refine the cauldron!
In the entire three dimensions, how many Immortal Kings possessed such resolution and courage to die for a noble cause?
Silent Night Buddhist Master had done so.
Valiant Star Immortal King had done so as well!
At this instant, Chen Xi was utterly stunned, and his mind went blank. It felt as if something had utterly blocked up his heart, and it oppressed him to the point his entire body trembled, causing him to be unable to restrain himself from shouting towards the sky!
His voice was like a thunderclap that was filled with boundless anger, frustration, rage, and hatred. It rumbled and surged throughout the entire palace, and it seemed like the howl of a Fiendgod that was unwilling to submit to fate!
The palace glowed as strands of vast energy of Karmic Luck suddenly converged towards Chen Xi from all directions, and it completely enveloped him.
At practically the exact same moment, the Nineflow Jade Seal in Chen Xi’s possession floated up into the sky and glowed, and then it suddenly emanated a myriad of strands of auspicious energy that enveloped the Ancient Dao Inheritance Cauldron.
In merely an instant, the Ancient Dao Inheritance Cauldron suddenly vanished, and then a completely round and simple bronze cauldron that had three legs, two handles, and an opening appeared at the bottom of the Nineflow Jade Seal!
Obviously, the two of them had already fused into one.
Suddenly, numerous furious roars resounded, and it was from those Immortal Kings. They’d already noticed that the situation was bad, and all of them were disgruntled. They exerted all their might and actually broke open the World of Karmic Flames at this moment!
Meanwhile, at this moment, Silent Night Buddhist Master suddenly stood up and stood amidst the surging Karmic Flames that covered the sky. He turned around to glance at Chen Xi before he pressed his palms together, and then he lowered his head and proclaimed a Buddhist chant.
After that, he revealed a wisp of a grin that seemed like a grin of release. It was so pure and happy, and it seemed like the smile of an ignorant child.
His entire body transformed into an expanse of Karmic Flames that flowed out along with the wind, and a Buddhist chant faintly drifted through the surroundings. “Everything isn’t constant. Everything in the world is like an illusion while life and death is never constant. Buddha be praised.”
Silent Night Buddhist Master vanished in the heavens and the earth at this moment!
At this moment, Chen Xi had calmed down completely. After he witnessed all of this, he was strangely calm, and he seemed to not know grief.
He’d become completely indifferent, and he seemed to be completely devoid of emotion from his extreme rage.
At this moment, those Immortal Kings had charged out from the World of Karmic Flames, and their faces were covered with anger, unwillingness, and uncontrollable killing intent. They wanted to annihilate Chen Xi.
However, right at this moment, the entire palace suddenly shook while a strand of material energy of Karmic Luck coiled around Chen Xi’s entire body, causing him to seem like an emperor that controlled the world.
At the same time, a grand voice resounded through the palace, and then it swept into the heavens…
“Successor, Chen Xi!”
At this instant, all the living beings in the entire academy were shocked at this moment. This was the voice of the Dean, Meng Xinghe, and it appeared at this moment to pass down his position to Chen Xi!
At the outer court, the Dao Bell of Vie that lay silent and motionless started rumbling at this moment.
In the Dao Development Reserve, the Heavenflow Divine Mirror emanated clear radiance that shot out and covered the sky before it descended through the heavens and the earth.
In the Pill Reserve, the Nine Profundity Divine Cauldron emanated a wave of clear howls while the sound of nature arose from within it. It caused a myriad of strands of auspicious light to arise, and it rained down throughout the entire academy, causing the entire academy to be nurtured and illuminated by an auspicious glow.
In the Scripture Reserve, the Daolight Jade Scripture rose into the sky and flipped open by itself before waves of chanting resounded from within it, and the sounds of chanting surged through every single inch of space in the heavens and the earth.
At this moment, every single restriction within the academy awoke from their deathly silence, and they seemed to be greeting the arrival of the new Dean into the world!
“It’s Chen Xi! He obtained the Ancient Dao Inheritance Cauldron and succeeded the position of Dean!” Waves of exclaims of surprise resounded out.
In the academy, at this moment, the numerous instructors and students that were hiding in the shadows were shocked, and they were excited and speechless. At this moment, the academy’s situation of being a host of dragons without a leader had finally ended!
“The new Dean of Dao Emperor Academy!”
“This battle and unrest are finally ending!”
The grand voice resounded through the heavens and the earth, and it spread into Darkombat City. All the living beings within the city were able to hear it, and they were all shocked while their gazes shot towards Dao Emperor Academy in succession.
They knew that when Chen Xi succeeded the position of Dean, it meant that a new era was about to begin in Dao Emperor Academy after Meng Xinghe’s departure!
At this moment, within the Dao Emperor Divine Palace.
Energy of Karmic Luck that could be seen with the eye coiled around Chen Xi like numerous dragons, and they roamed and whistled around him while fusing into one with him.
Chen Xi stood there while his might grew more and more supreme, and his aura became even more unfathomable and immovable. He was like an overlord that commanded the ages and controlled the world, and his eyes were icy cold and indifferent, and they seemed capable of seeing through the essence of the world. Moreover, Karmic Luck coiled around his body like enormous dragons, and they vividly displayed an exalted might that tolerated no offense.
When they witnessed all of these changes, all of the Immortal Kings suddenly stopped moving. They were extremely shocked in their hearts, and their expressions changed indeterminately as they felt both hatred and anger. Yet it was impossible to change all of this now.
Unless…they killed Chen Xi!
The Immortal King of the Phoenix Clan had left, Valiant Star Immortal King had sacrificed himself and perished, Silent Night Buddhist Master had sacrificed himself for a noble cause, so only six Immortal Kings remained in the palace now.
They were respectively from the Jiang Clan, Wanqi Clan, Zhongli Clan, Dragon Dimension, and Ji Clan.
Presently, the gods had ceased to exist within the three dimensions, so Immortal Kings were already invincible and paramount existence, let alone when there was an entire six of them here.
So even if Chen Xi had obtained the Karmic Luck of the entire palace, these Immortal Kings were still unwilling to leave, and they intended to kill Chen Xi at any cost in order to reclaim the Ancient Dao Inheritance Cauldron.
“Chen Xi! How audacious of you! You forcefully seized the Ancient Dao Inheritance Cauldron and seized the position of Dean. Is this something that a Half-step Immortal King like you can forcefully occupy? Quickly allow yourself to be captured! Don’t bring harm to yourself!” said Jiang Tingfang from the ancient Jiang Clan. His words were fierce because he knew that if this continued, then Chen Xi’s imposing aura would only grow more and more exuberant, and they had to make a move as soon as possible.
“Everyone, what’re all of you waiting for? Could it be that you’re all willing to watch as this kid usurps the position of Dean?” Another Immortal King spoke with a grim voice.
Chen Xi was currently only at the Half-step Immortal King Realm, yet his strength was already so terrifying, and he was even capable of surmounting a realm to battle Immortal Kings. If he was allowed to succeed the position of Dean, then could anyone subdue him in the future?
Presently, they’d already completely offended Chen Xi. Enmity had already been sown between them, and it was irredeemable. So, at this moment, they could only kill Chen Xi, otherwise they would never be able to be at ease.
“All of you’ve made the right choice because I’ve decided to not allow a single one of you to leave.” Chen Xi’s gaze grew even colder and indifferent, and he truly seemed like a monarch as he spoke in an icy cold tone.
His voice was calm and ordinary, yet it was murderous like lightning, and it surged within the hearts of those Immortal Kings, causing their expressions to change and reveal extreme shock and fury.
“Everyone, do you see it now? This kid is running wild! So why don’t we kill him, because he’ll definitely become an enormous worry in our hearts in the future, and it’s even to the extent that he’ll bring calamity to the powers that stand behind us!” Jiang Tingfang had a livid expression as she roared furiously.
At this moment, the Immortal Kings that were originally hesitating had finally made up their minds, and their gazes revealed killing intent in succession while locking onto Chen Xi who stood in the distance.
Could it be that the joint forces of six Immortal Kings would still be unable to kill an existence at the Half-step Immortal King Realm?
They didn’t believe it!
