Chapter 1490 – Shadow Of The Sovereign Sect

The battle had ended.

Six Immortal Kings were annihilated.

At this moment, the entrance to the Dao Emperor Divine Palace was opened wide while dust and dirt suffused the surroundings, and a blazing glow flowed throughout the palace.

The True Phoenix Zhao Lingxi transformed into fluttered in the sky while her gorgeous wings emanated a myriad of strands of flames and boundless divine might that illuminated the world.

However, the most dazzling and resplendent was that tall figure that stood proudly by himself before the entrance!

His dense long hair fluttered while his deep gaze seemed like bolts of cold lightning. As his eyes opened and closed, it seemed as if he could see through the secrets of the world, and a blood red ancient sword that was still dripping with the bright golden blood of Immortal Kings was casually held in his hand.

Roar! Roar!

The energy of Karmic Luck within the entire palace transformed into numerous enormous dragons that coiled around his body before they raised their heads and roared towards the sky. Their roars resounded through the nine heavens, and it caused him to seem like the overlord of this expanse of the heavens and the earth!

At his feet were two mangled corpses that belonged to Immortal Kings, and they gave him an extra oppressive aura.

“I was filled with greed earlier, yet I’ve realized my mistakes now. Please do forgive me.” Suddenly, Zhao Lingxi spoke while she withdrew her wings and transformed into a slender figure with bright eyes, white teeth, and jet black hair that flowed down like a waterfall, and her beautiful face carried a wisp of an apologetic expression.

Chen Xi waved his hand. “I understand, there’s no need to mention this again.” 

As he spoke, he put the blood red sword away, and then his gaze suddenly shot towards the square outside the palace.

“Greetings, Dean!” Right at this moment, a wave of cheers that seemed like a tidal wave resounded. It was in a completely orderly manner, and it shook the sky. Moreover, it was a rather magnificent sight that revealed a grand and solemn aura.

Before Chen Xi crushed the six Immortal Kings, a dense mass of people had gathered on the boundlessly vast square before the palace.

It wasn’t just the outsiders of the Mu Clan, Dragon Dimension, Phoenix Clan, Ji Clan, and the other powers that were amongst them, most of the people gathered here were the students and instructors of the academy led by Zhou Zhili, Wang Daolu, and the other instructors.

In other words, since the moment they found out that Chen Xi had obtained the Ancient Dao Inheritance Cauldron and succeeded the position of Dean, all the instructors and students of the entire academy were excited, and they’d simultaneously gathered here.

The outer court, inner court, Scripture Reserve, Pill Reserve, Dao Development Reserve… So long as they were fortunate enough to survive this disaster, then all the instructors and students had arrived here.

At this moment, all of them had personally witnessed the scene of Chen Xi annihilating two Immortal Kings. His supreme bearing caused him to seem like a peerless emperor, and it shook the hearts of everyone present here in the surroundings. Thus, at this moment, all of them couldn’t refrain themselves from shouting.

This was their new Dean, the leader of the entire academy!

When they witnessed this scene, all of them were clearly aware in their hearts that Chen Xi himself had annihilated all the Immortal Kings who’d brought disaster to the academy this time, and he’d resolved this disaster, allowing them to see hope once more. Thus, they were naturally excited and delighted to the extreme in their hearts.

Their cheers were filled with sincere happiness, and it converged into an ocean that shook the heavens and the earth.

As for those outsiders from the Mu Clan, Phoenix Clan, Dragon Dimension, Ji Clan, and the other powers, all of them were shocked to the extreme. They were deterred by Chen Xi’s imposing aura, and they were slightly terrified.

Earlier, all of them had malicious intent, and they only realized their mistakes later on. Now that Chen Xi had annihilated all the Immortal Kings and crushed the unrest in the academy before appearing once more in the world while carrying a supreme imposing aura, all of them couldn’t help but feel slightly perturbed in their hearts.

In short, as Chen Xi stood upright before the Dao Emperor Divine Palace, the energy of Karmic Luck coiled around his body, and every single move he made was filled with the imposing might of a monarch, causing him to become the center of attention.

However, Chen Xi seemed strangely composed when facing all of this. He swept everyone in the surroundings with his gaze. He saw Wang Daolu, Zhou Zhili, Xuanyuan Pojun, and all the other instructors; and he also noticed A’Xiu, Ji Xuanbing, Zhao Mengli, Ye Tang, Ling Qingwu, Zhen Lu, and the other students.

Their expressions were filled with excitement and happiness, and the gazes they shot at him even carried a wisp of reverence and heartfelt happiness.

Similarly, Chen Xi noticed that all the outsiders from the Dragon Dimension, Ji Clan, Mu Clan, and the other powers revealed a perturbed and reverent expression when looking at him.

At this instant, Chen Xi finally realized that he’d already become the Dean of this number one academy in the Immortal Dimension!

“Greetings, Dean!” Another wave of orderly and loud shouts resounded through the surroundings.

A wisp of a heavy feeling of responsibility suddenly surged out into Chen Xi’s heart, and there was even a feeling of pride amidst it. He knew that from this moment onward, his fate was already closely linked to the entire academy.

“Haha! Congratulations Dean Chen Xi for taking control of Dao Emperor Academy!” Suddenly, musical laughter that was pleasing to the ear resounded from above the sky and resounded through the heavens and the earth, and it completely destroyed the solemn atmosphere in the surroundings.

Along with this voice, a graceful figure floated into appearance above the sky. She had a bearing that was tender like water, and the space between her brows flickered with the glow of wisdom.

The hearts of everyone present in the surroundings shook. Who’s this woman? She was actually able to appear here without anyone noticing at all?

“Jiang Lingxiao!” When he saw this figure, Chen Xi’s eyes suddenly became icy cold and murderous. Shockingly, it was one of the seven Elite Disciples of the Sovereign Sect, Jiang Lingxiao! 

Why…would she make an appearance within the academy?

“This time, I have to thank Dean Chen Xi for being a great help to my Sovereign Sect and eliminating those Immortal Kings. I’ll come disturb Dean Chen Xi later once my Sovereign Sect deals with other miscellaneous matters. Farewell!” Jiang Lingxiao’s entire body flowed with a wisp of illusory light blue immortal radiance. She smiled sweetly while speaking in a pleasing voice, and she seemed like she was a good friend of Chen Xi’s as she spoke with him.

As soon as she finished speaking, her figure flashed and intended to leave.


Right at this moment, a hand that blotted out the sky appeared out of thin air, and it grabbed fiercely towards her.

“Since you’ve come, then why don’t you stay for some time!?” Chen Xi’s murderous and oppressive voice resounded along with this attack.

“That won’t do. But it won’t be long before we’ll meet again.” Jiang Lingxiao had executed some sort of secret technique, causing her figure to gradually turn translucent amidst her tender laughter, and she actually avoided Chen Xi’s attack and vanished.

Chen Xi soared into the sky before his Immortal Sense swept towards the surroundings. In the end, he confirmed that she’d already fled the academy, and it was impossible to capture her any longer. This caused Chen Xi’s expression to turn gloomy.

She actually fled right under my nose! The Sovereign Sect really is capable!

A cold glow surged in Chen Xi’s eyes while his originally relaxed mood had become slightly heavy because of this unexpected event. He was faintly able to guess that in this disaster that befell the academy this time, the Sovereign Sect had probably been encouraging and pushing these Immortal Kings from behind!

Otherwise, how could the Immortal Kings of the Jiang Clan, Zhongli Clan, Wanqi Clan, Ji Clan, Buddha Dimension, Dragon Dimension, and the various other powers have arrived jointly at the academy? All of this seemed to be too much of a coincidence.

It was even to the extent that Chen Xi was able to guess that no matter if these Immortal Kings were able to seize the position of Dean during the disaster this time, it was more beneficial than harmful to the Sovereign Sect.

If they succeeded, then Dao Emperor Academy would be reduced to a pawn in the control of the other powers, and there would definitely be all sorts of latent troubles within the academy that would provide the Sovereign Sect an opportunity to invade it.

If they failed, then these Immortal Kings would be killed. In this way, it would probably become even easier for the Sovereign Sect to deal with the powers that stood behind those Immortal Kings.

Just like now. All the Immortal Kings from the Wanqi Clan, Zhongli Clan, and Jiang Clan had perished here. So how could those powers that had lost these Immortal Kings resist the invasion of the Sovereign Sect?

Conversely, if Dao Emperor Academy was controlled by these powers, then all the instructors and students of the academy would probably be unwilling to submit. At that time, all sorts of incidents couldn’t be avoided, and the Sovereign Sect would seize that opportunity to invade the academy!

It really is a good plan, a great scheme. However, when you come next, I’ll make all of the members of your Sovereign Sect leave their lives behind! Chen Xi was silent for a moment before a wisp of hatred and killing intent that was impossible to conceal flashed within his eyes.

He truly hated the Sovereign Sect to the bone.

At this moment, everyone present on the square were terrified in their hearts, and their expressions had turned grim. The Sovereign Sect! The shadow of the Sovereign Sect was actually present behind all of this chaos as well!

Especially the Mu Clan, Dragon Dimension, Phoenix Clan, and other powers from outside the academy. At this moment, all of their hearts were filled with shock and fury. Never had they imagined that they’d become tools for the Sovereign Sect since the beginning! 

Especially when they thought about the six Immortal Kings that had been killed by Chen Xi just now, a wisp of coldness couldn’t help but arise in the hearts of everyone. If all of this was really encouraged and instigated by the Sovereign Sect from behind the scenes, then isn’t it a little too terrifying…

“Dean, at this moment, the important matter at hand is…” Wang Daolu and Zhou Zhili moved forward while carrying a wisp of reverence on their faces, and even their method of address towards Chen Xi had changed.

Chen Xi understood their thoughts. He immediately glanced at Mu Rongtian, Zhao Lingxi, and the other forces from outside the academy. “Everyone, my academy is currently in a state of unrest, so we have no time to entertain guests. Please leave.”

His voice was flat, yet it was filled with an extraordinary imposing aura.

Not only did Mu Rongtian and the others not feel that Chen Xi was going too far, they heaved a sigh of relief in their hearts instead. At the very least, it proved that Chen Xi had no intention of getting even with them after the battle had ended.

“Then we’ll respectfully comply to your wishes, and we’ll come disturb Dean and the Fellow Daoists here on another day.” Mu Rongtian cupped his hands. As soon as he finished speaking, he led all the members of the Mu Clan to turn around and leave.

The other powers successively bid their farewells and left when they saw Mu Rongtian’s actions.

Presently, all of them were aware that Chen Xi had slaughtered all the Immortal Kings by himself and had succeeded the position of Dean. Chen Xi’s might had already arrived at an unprecedented height, so even an Immortal King wouldn’t dare go against Chen Xi’s will at this moment.

This was his power and influence!

In the entire three dimensions, gods had ceased to exist, so were there any Immortal Kings that dared to go against Chen Xi?

Only Chen Xi was clearly aware that if he didn’t rely on the assistance from the energy of Karmic Luck within the palace, then he would definitely be unable to attain the battle accomplishments he’d attained right now. 

Of course, if he was facing one or two Immortal Kings, then even if he didn’t rely on the energy within the palace, he still wouldn’t be afraid of them at all.

“They’d willfully destroyed the academy. Why did you let them go?” A’Xiu came over, and she was still slightly resentful.

“It was the overall situation at the time that caused all of this. These powers were just deceived by others, and our enemy is still the Sovereign Sect in the end.” Chen Xi spoke with a calm expression.

Wang Daolu and the other instructors were extremely gratified when they heard this because merely a single sentence allowed them to perceive that Chen Xi’s current gaze wasn’t restricted to the internal strife between the various powers of the Immortal Dimension, and it was placed at the height of the entire three dimensions instead.

As the Dean of Dao Emperor Academy, he precisely required such a bearing and vision.

“After this, I’ll have to entrust all the various affairs within the academy to all of you. I have to enter into closed door cultivation for a period of time and strive to step foot into the Immortal King Realm before the Sovereign Sect attacks!” Chen Xi took a deep breath as he glanced at Wang Daolu and the others, and then he spoke slowly. He was very clearly aware of how formidable his enemy was, and only by allowing his own strength to become even stronger would he be able to survive these chaotic times.
