Eldest Senior Brother Wu Xuechan!
In Chen Xi’s mind, this name was extremely unfamiliar to him because he’d only coincidentally heard of this name from Li Yang when he went to take revenge on the Zuoqiu Clan at Iris Desert.
However, Chen Xi deeply remembered it even until now. At that time, when facing the threat of the Seven Godslaughter Generals from the Sovereign Sect, Li Yang had once said — “If my Eldest Senior Brother was here, then all seven of you together would still be insufficient.”
The Seven Godslaughter Generals were seven terrifying existences that had stepped foot into the Godrank Realm, and they’d fought alongside the Sovereign Sect’s Master for countless years. However, Li Yang had actually spoken such words, and this obviously showed exactly how terrifying Chen Xi’s Eldest Senior Brother, Wu Xuechan’s, cultivation was.
No wonder that with my current cultivation, my mind and heart couldn’t help but be terrified by him earlier. So it turns out that he’s my Eldest Senior Brother, Wu Xuechan… Chen Xi took a deep breath and finally confirmed this fact.
“This is a strand of will that I left branded here, and it’ll vanish soon. I’m afraid I’m unable to speak too long with you,” said the phantom who was Wu Xuechan.
Chen Xi was shocked in his heart, and he said, “May I know what instructions Eldest Senior Brother has for me?”
“It isn’t any instructions at all.” Wu Xuechan smiled while his snow white hair fluttered. He stretched out a finger to point at the limestone before the hut and said, “This is the Star Observatory. You’ll only be able to control and master the true Infinite Divine Talisman, the core inheritance of our Oracle Mountain, by cultivating concentratedly on it.”
He paused for a moment and continued. “As for the what’s within the hut, it’s the Divine Abyss of Star Refinement. It’s filled with the aura of divinity, and it was sealed by Master via a supreme technique. If you intend to enter it and temper yourself, then you first have to master the Infinite Divine Talisman.”
Chen Xi couldn’t help but be slightly curious when he heard this. I frequently comprehend profound techniques from the Infinite Divine Talisman within my world of stars. Logically speaking, I seem to have no need to comprehend and cultivate anymore, right?
As if he’d seen through Chen Xi’s thoughts, Wu Xuechan said in a light voice, “The Infinite Divine Talisman within the Star Manor was left behind by Master, and you can only receive and comprehend profound techniques from it, yet it’s unable to allow you to truly grasp your own Infinite Divine Talisman. Little Junior Brother, you’ll naturally understand the difference between this when you’ve really accomplished it.”
At this point, Chen Xi finally came to a complete understanding, and he said, “So that’s how it is.”
“Little Junior Brother, the tempering within the Divine Abyss of Star Refinement is filled with numerous dangers. However, since you possess the River Diagram fragments, you’ll definitely be able to turn calamities into blessings and obtain unexpected and great fortuitous encounters.” Wu Xuechan spoke in a calm tone, and he said slowly, “Presently, the calamity has descended onto the three dimensions, and it’s an unprecedented disaster, yet it’s also an unprecedentedly great fortuitous encounter. To our Oracle Mountain, the true battlefield hasn’t been the three dimensions since long ago, and it’s the ancient God Domain instead!”
When he spoke up to here, his expression became solemn, and his eyes that were deep like the starry sky stared at Chen Xi as he said, “Little Junior Brother, I believe that with your ability, you’ll definitely be able to sweep through the forces that the Sovereign Sect left behind in the three dimensions. However, once you’ve accomplished all of this, you must head over to the Last Days Domain as soon as possible. When it comes to some fortuitous encounters, you won’t have another chance once you let it slip by…”
Chen Xi was shocked in his heart. He’d originally intended to head to the Last Days Domain to seek an opportunity to enter the ancient God Domain after he’d dealt with all his affairs in the three dimensions. However, when he heard his Eldest Senior Brother speak like this, it caused him to start attaching even more importance to this matter.
Could it be that there’s a time limit to head to the ancient God Domain?
“Little Junior Brother, the Grand Dao is boundless. The world outside the three dimensions is far vaster and more magnificent that you can imagine. I and the others will be going on ahead first, and I look forward to being reunited with you in the future. Take care!” Amidst his warm and calm voice, Wu Xuechan’s figure swiftly vanished like a bubble.
In an instant, only Chen Xi remained before the hut.
He stood there and pondered deeply for a long time, and in the end, he seemed to have understood something. He immediately stopped hesitating and walked towards the limestone before sitting cross-legged atop it.
In an instant, the starry sky that radiated light eternally above him had instantly become different in his eyes.
The myriad of stars that originally floated motionlessly had started to whistle as they circulated at this moment. They moved along a profound pathway as they converged towards the center of the universe, and then they formed an extremely vast diagram of a nebula.
The numerous stars were like the talisman striations drawn by the tip of a brush, and they revealed endless variations. They were profound, complicated, and seemed as if they contained the principles of changes in the entire universe.
If it was anyone else who saw such a vast, boundless, and grand scene, that person would probably have his soul taken away from a single glance at it and be forever unable to recover his senses.
However, Chen Xi was different. He possessed attainments in the Talisman Dao that was at the Talisman God Realm. So with a single glance, he recognized that the diagram of a nebula in the universe above him was revealing a type of Grand Dao!
It was the aura of ‘Infinite!’
The Master of Oracle Mountain, Fuxi, had precisely relied on the River Diagram to deduce the secrets of the heavens before he comprehended and grasped the profundities of the Infinite Grand Dao, and then he established one of the supreme sects in the three dimensions, Oracle Mountain.
Now, this supreme secret of Oracle Mountain was being revealed before Chen Xi’s field of vision in the form of the circulation of stars.
The myriad of stars circulated and drew out a diagram of a nebula, and it revealed the center of the universe. It was ceaselessly forming all sorts of mysterious and profound pathways that emanated strands of the aura of ‘Infinite.’
At this moment, Chen Xi’s mind and heart were clear, and he was completely immersed within it. He was following the infinite pathways and comprehending the profundities that filled it.
In his daze, he’d completely lost track of time.
Seven days later.
A strange fluctuation resounded from within the universe in Chen Xi’s body, and it seemed like the first strand of sound that came from within the Chaos. In an instant, the universe within Chen Xi’s body was seething, and it started circulating by itself.
The numerous stars formed from his internal organs, apertures, meridians, spirit, energy, and essence… All of them were originally surging around within his body in a disorderly and random manner, yet at this moment, these stars seemed to be controlled by an invisible hand, and they started to circulate in the universe within his body according to various pathways.
This process continued for an entire day.
In the end, the myriad of stars in the universe within Chen Xi’s body actually formed into a mysterious and brilliant diagram of a nebula, and it was exactly similar to the nebula in the universe above him!
In other words, the changes in the universe within his body and the universe above him had completely conformed to each other. They cooperated with each other from afar in an orderly manner, and they were filled with the mysterious aura of ‘Infinite.’
At this moment, the myriad of stars within the universe seemed to have instantly lit up as well, and they emanated strands of chilly starlight that descended from the horizon and enveloped Chen Xi’s entire body.
On the other hand, in the universe within Chen Xi’s body, the numerous stars seemed as if they were welcoming rain after a long drought. They were covered in strands of chilly starlight and became even more lively while the pathways they circulated on became even more flawless, graceful, profound, and perfect.
Chen Xi was completely unaware of all of this.
Another seven days passed.
At this moment, Chen Xi’s back was ramrod straight while his expression was calm and solemn. His body was enveloped in a layer of silver and brilliant starlight that was dazzling and exuberant, and it caused him to seem like a god of the stars that resided in the heavens and the earth.
Suddenly, his entire body shook while a grand sound of the Dao resounded from within his body and surged through the world.
At practically the exact same moment, the circulating and whistling nebula in the universe above him stopped abruptly. In an instant, it seemed as if everything in this world had returned to silence, and only the sound of the Dao was reverberating.
Chen Xi opened his eyes, and as his eyes opened, a myriad of mysterious talisman pathways surged out from within them before they ceaselessly flickered and transformed. It was like the movement in the universe and the stars.
A long time later, the phenomena within his eyes vanished, and his eyes became calm and clear.
Sure enough, this is the Infinite Divine Talisman! Chen Xi raised his eyes and looked over. The expanse of nebula in the universe that had fallen into a motionless state just happened to have formed the outline of a Divine Talisman diagram, and it was exactly similar to the Infinite Divine Talisman he’d seen in the Manor. Since it was exactly similar, could it be anything else but the Infinite Divine Talisman?
In other words, the pathways revealed by the stars in the universe while he sat cross-legged on the ‘Star Observatory’ for the past few days were precisely the various profundities contained within the Infinite Divine Talisman!
At the same time, Chen Xi noticed that the stars in the universe within his body that were formed from his internal organs, meridians, apertures, spirit, energy, essence, and various other things had actually formed into the diagram of an Infinite Divine Talisman!
He was able to clearly sense that the Grand Dao and Immortal Force he possessed had both become a part of this Infinite Divine Talisman. They were changing and circulating without end while tempering everything within his body. It was extremely miraculous.
So this is the inheritance of Oracle Mountain. In the past, I was only relying on the Infinite Divine Talisman to cultivate profound techniques. Yet now, I’ve grasped it instead, and I’ve started to deduce profound techniques myself… Chen Xi suddenly felt a strand of enlightenment in his heart. It was like how one could understand all techniques once one completely mastered and understood a technique. When he comprehended the core profundities of the inheritance and looked back to the profound techniques he’d grasped in the past, he felt like he was filled with great aspirations to rise to the top.
Chen Xi tried to circulate his cultivation, and the universe within his body suddenly rumbled. The Infinite Divine Talisman floated up into appearance, and it emanated strands of extremely vast Immortal Force that surged and whistled.
In merely an instant, Chen Xi was able to clearly sense that his cultivation had actually improved a step further, and even his combat strength had undergone a transformation. It faintly showed signs of being saturated and perfect.
It won’t be long now. I’m only a trace away from stepping into the extremes of the Immortal King Realm before I can seek the path to becoming a god! Chen Xi took a deep breath before he stood up. As he gazed at the limestone on the ground, he couldn’t help but exclaim once more with amazement in his heart. In a short period of less than twenty days, it allowed me to grasp the inheritance of the Infinite Divine Talisman. Moreover, even my strength improved once more. This ‘Star Observatory’ really is indescribably profound.
After that, he restrained his thoughts and didn’t hesitate to look at the nearby hut.
The door to the hut was tightly closed, and it was just like when he saw it for the first time. It was extremely ordinary.
However, Chen Xi was already clearly aware now that the Divine Abyss of Star Refinement was within the hut. According to his Fifth Senior Brother, when he completed his tempering in the Divine Abyss of Star Refinement, he wouldn’t need to fear anyone from the Sovereign Sect.
The anyone here included the Eldest Elite Disciple of the Sovereign Sect, Yin Huaikong, and those two Sect Priests of the Sovereign Sect, Elder Kong Zhao and Daoist Tuo Kong!
Let me see exactly what sort of dangers are hidden within this Divine Abyss of Star Refinement, and if it’s really as formidable as Eldest Senior Brother said… A wisp of curiosity flashed within Chen Xi’s mind, and there was also a wisp of a firm expression within them as he strode over before pushing open the door and entering.
As soon as Chen Xi strode into the hut, and before he could see the scene within it clearly, his body was carried by a strand of invisible force and was instantly teleported away while he lost all his senses.
