Dark Tenthwater Star.
This star was unlike the other stars in the surroundings. It was extremely large, and it was over 1,000 times larger than the other stars. When looked at from afar, it was like the scorching sun that floated in the starry sky, and it was extremely dazzling.
If one intended to arrive at Corrupted Spirit Star at the deepest depths of Taowu Galaxy, then it was unavoidable for one to pass through Dark Tenthwater Star.
A wave of fluctuation arose in space, and then Chen Xi and Tie Yunping’s figures appeared.
Chen Xi descended swiftly, and then he grabbed up a rock and exerted slight force with his fingers, yet he was actually unable to crush it into pieces. This caused him to be slightly surprised. “This place really is extraordinary. The Avīci Corrupted Qi has already seeped into every single inch of ground on this star, and it caused the landscape and plants here to be extremely strong.”
“Senior….” Tie Yunping’s figure suddenly started shaking while her countenance turned pale, and she was extremely dazed.
Chen Xi’s brows raised, and then he swiftly withdrew the Dark Parasol Sapling. It created a clear and glistening barrier of light that enveloped Tie Yunping.
In an instant, Tie Yunping seemed as if her soul had returned to her body. She let out a long sigh of relief while the space between her brows still carried a wisp of terror.
“That’s the might of the Avīci Corrupted Qi invading your body, so you must remember not to get distracted, so as to avoid providing it with an opportunity to take advantage of and shake your foundation in the Divine Dao.” Chen Xi instructed.
“How terrifying.” Tie Yunping felt a lingering fear in her heart.
“Just follow by my side. In my opinion, the area from this place onwards isn’t somewhere World Enlightened True Gods can step foot on. Perhaps this is exactly the reason why the rules of the Starhunt Meeting dictates that every participant must have a group leader at the Domain Enlightened Spirit God Realm.” Chen Xi spoke casually, and his gaze was sizing up the surroundings instead.
Because Dark Tenthwater Star was enveloped by Avīci Corrupted Qi, it was an expanse of desolation and utter lack of vitality. Even though it was during the day, it gave others a ghastly and terrifying feeling.
Especially shocking to Chen Xi was that skeletons could be frequently noticed on the ground. Some were damaged and decayed bronze armor; some were even shattered to the point it was actually impossible to determine if it belonged to a god or ferocious beast.
As the wind blew through the sand, it was even to the extent that he could notice a huge amount of damaged Divine Artifacts. Most of them were already extremely decayed from being tainted by the Avīci Corrupted Qi, and they were completely lifeless.
Obviously, numerous slaughters and battles had occurred on Dark Tenthwater Star throughout the annals of history, and countless living beings were buried here.
Yet now, all of this had gone along with the wind, and it had transformed into fragments and skeletons that covered the ground.
Looks like the owners of these skeletons had once come here to fight for the Avīci Hellsword all those years ago. Unfortunately, they perished here before they could even succeed, and they transformed into a pile of dirt. Chen Xi had heard that within the annals of history in Snow Ink Region, many gods had taken the risk to come here for the sake of the Avīci Hellsword. Unfortunately, no one had succeeded up until now.
Chen Xi didn’t sigh with emotion when facing a fact like this because too many similar incidents had occurred since the ancient times until now.
“Hmm?” However, right when Chen Xi intended to take action as usual, he suddenly frowned while his expression instantly became indifferent, and strands of a murderous aura faintly flowed in his eyes.
Hah. I never expected that they would become impatient and take the initiative to come looking for us. Chen Xi sneered in his heart, and then he casually instructed Tie Yunping. “Stand still and don’t move.”
Tie Yunping was stunned, and she was slightly bewildered.
However, in the next moment, she came to an understanding because a wave of fluctuations suddenly arose in the space extremely far away, and then numerous figures appeared.
Shockingly, it was Xuan Ta’zi, Xiao Ruoruo, Xiao Tianlong, Lu Yan, and the others who were in the lead, and their group consisted of around 20 plus people.
Obviously, many of the others within the group were definitely from Spirit Truth Daoist Temple, and they were from the same sect as Xiao Ruoruo and Xuan Ta’zi.
“Junior Sister Tie, we finally meet again.” As soon as she saw Tie Yunping, a strand of rage arose uncontrollably in Lu Yan’s heart, and she sneered in a sharp voice. A lowly and stupid female disciple from the outer court was actually able to accomplish all of this, and she was simply unable to accept it.
Tie Yunping’s expression changed slightly, yet it wasn’t because of Lu Yan’s ridicule, and it was instead because she saw Xuan Ta’zi!
This outstanding genius in the younger generation who was renowned throughout Snow Ink Region had actually come over personally as well, and this caused her to be unable to help but feel slightly worried.
Chen Xi started smiling instead when facing all of this, and he smiled extremely brilliantly. “Looks like you’re already starting to worry about the consequences when your ranking is surpassed?”
What consequences were they?
It was naturally to kneel on the ground and apologize before crippling one’s own foundation in the Divine Dao!
Xiao Tianlong and Lu Yan both understood the meaning behind Chen Xi’s words, and their faces turned grim.
“Chen Xun, it’s already at a time like this, yet you’re still able to smile. You’re really not bad. However, from today onwards, you’ll probably be a cripple.” Xiao Ruoruo stood out while her beautiful face carried a wisp of pride and even coldness.
“Oh?” Chen Xi glanced at her and said, “You mean that I’m bound to lose in the bet?”
“Of course.” Xiao Ruoruo didn’t hesitate at all to agree, and she seemed to be extremely confident.
“Alright. Since you’re so confident, then do you dare to make another bet with me. My request is very simple, kneel down, apologize, and cripple your foundation in the Divine Dao as well. Do you are?” Chen Xi raised his eyes to look at her with a composed gaze.
“You….” Xiao Ruoruo’s expression froze. Never had she imagined that Chen Xi would actually raise such a request at this moment.
“What a joke! You’re about to be eliminated in a moment, so what qualifications do you have to make a bet with my older sister?” Xiao Tianlong berated from the side, and the space between his brows was filled with disdain.
“Then it means you don’t dare?” Chen Xi said with a smile, “I knew it would be like this. Without your identities, all of you’re just a group of worthless fellows without any courage at all. It’s truly disappointing.”
A single sentence from him had directly insulted their entire group, and it caused their expressions to become hostile.
“You’re courting death!”
Two disciples from Spirit Truth Daoist Temple were unable to restrain themselves, and they suddenly charged out. One held a sword while the other held a horse-tail whisk, and they charged fiercely towards Chen Xi.
In an instant, the heavens and the earth dimmed while killing intent rumbled and swept towards the surroundings.
Sword qi shot into the sky and carried a myriad of sword images that were gorgeous, brilliant, and surged with Divine Dao Laws. On the other hand, the horse-tail whisk was like a white and boundless roiling river.
Both these attacks were murderous and ruthless. They were executed by two Domain Enlightened Spirit God Realm disciples of the Spirit Truth Daoist Temple, and they revealed an extremely astounding impetus.
Needless to say, there two were first-rate existences in the Domain Enlightened Spirit God Realm. Because if their strengths were insufficient, then they would have definitely been unable to persist in the Starhunt Meeting until now.
Chen Xi stood towering and without moving on the spot when facing these attacks, and the smile on his face grew even more brilliant.
“Just a bet made all of you utilize such lowly and detestable methods like bullying others with numbers? How truly shameless.” Right when the attacks pressed down upon him, Chen XI suddenly made a move. He pressed his fingers together to form a sword, and then he swept it lightly.
A cold glow arose abruptly. As soon as it appeared, the heavens and the earth returned to silence, and only this strand of a sword howl resounded through the heavens and the earth.
The first move he’d comprehended at the Sword Emperor Realm — Five Element Annihilator! It destroyed all before its path!
The sword light and horse-tail whisk that assaulted him rumbled as they exploded into pieces, and they transformed into a rain of light that descended through the sky.
After that, those two disciples didn’t even have the chance to dodge because this strand of sword qi didn’t lose any momentum as it swept onto them. One of their chests was torn open while the other lost an arm, and the blood of gods sprayed while shrill and miserable cries resounded.
Even though they weren’t directly eliminated from the Starhunt Meeting, they were already heavily injured!
Everyone’s hearts instantly shook violently while their pupils dilated. They practically didn’t dare believe their eyes.
All of this had occurred too quickly, and it had only been an instant. It was fast to the point that no one had the time to react before these two Domain Enlightened Spirit God’s had already suffered heavy injuries!
“How could this have happened!?” Lu Yan let out a sharp cry from terror, and her beautiful face had twisted together.
This was truly too shocking because those were two Domain Enlightened Spirit Gods, and they were even Domain Enlightened Spirit Gods from a top power like the Spirit Truth Daoist Temple, so they were usually unmatched. Yet now, they’d actually been heavily injured with a single strike, so could anyone accept this reality?
It wasn’t just Lu Yan, the expressions of the others had changed as well.
Earlier, they’d already estimated that Chen Xi’s strength was extraordinary, yet they’d never expected that it would actually be formidable to such an extent.
Even Xuan Ta’zi who’d been constantly watching coldly from the side couldn’t help but be moved, and his eyes narrowed while his expression became slightly solemn.
If it was him, then even though he could accomplish this as well, he was unable to accept that a young man who came from nowhere possessed a strength that could actually rival his own.
“You dare to come cause trouble when you only possess such little ability? You’re truly courting death.” Chen Xi shook his head, and his words were filled with ridicule.
This caused Xiao Ruoruo, Xiao Tianlong, and the others to be both shocked and furious, and their gazes shot towards Xuan Ta’zi in unison.
“Friend, allow me to experience your ability. I hope that you don’t disappoint me!” Right at this moment, Xuan Ta’zi suddenly took a step forward.
He wore a Daoist’s robe, yet he utilized a halberd that was covered in killing intent. His eyes were like two divine moons, and his pupils were branded with extremely brilliant and mysterious Dao Markings.
As he took this step forward, every single inch of space in this expanse of the heavens and the earth cracked, and it seemed to be unable to endure the pressure from such divine might.
This scene had truly shocked many people in the surroundings. After all, this wasn’t an ordinary place. The Avīci Corrupted Qi had seeped into the heavens and the earth here, so it was extremely hard and comparable to a Divine Artifact.
Yet now, merely the divine might he revealed had shattered the surrounding space, so it was naturally astounding.
In an instant, the spirits of Xiao Ruoruo, Xiao Tianlong, and the others rose once more as they saw boundless hope and confidence from Xuan Ta’zi.
At this moment, Chen Xi’s eyes narrowed as well. No false experts existed beneath reputations. Xuan Ta’zi’s strength couldn’t be underestimated, and at the very least, it was much more formidable to Ninth Uncle and Moli Chou that he’d encountered in the past.
Without wasting his breath at all, Xuan Ta’zi waved the halberd. It tore through the sky while carrying an ancient aura and a type of all-powerful killing intent as it instantly swept towards Chen Xi.
Chen Xi slapped out with his palm and blasted the halberd away, and then his figure flashed like a roc and charged forward to meet Xuan Ta’zi in battle.
Chen Xi’s fist smashed out like a raging ocean, and it carried a powerful imposing aura and enormous force that seemed to be on the verge of destroying the heavens and the earth.
This was a completely new combat method that Chen Xi had recently discovered. It utilized the Infinite Divine Talisman as the core and transformed his Talisman Divine Dao into the energy of various other Divine Dao Laws in order to form the most perfect match with his techniques.
Just like this punch. It contained the Divine Dao Laws of the five elements. The five elements gave life to each other, and this cycle was endless. It just happened to show signs of the perfection of the Grand Dao, and it was filled with a terrifying pressure that was all-powerful and unavoidable.
Xuan Ta’zi’s pupils constricted as he clearly understood how formidable this attack was. The halberd in his hand suddenly erupted with a myriad of strand of light and was enshrouded with profound Dao Markings as it forcefully collided with Chen Xi’s fist.
In an instant, rumbling resounded through this expanse of the heavens and the earth. The rocks shattered into pieces, the earth sunk down, and shattered specks of divine light swept towards the surroundings. It was an expanse of chaos, and it caused everyone in the surroundings to be astounded while they dodged successively as they were deeply afraid of being affected by it.
