Chen Xi was injured. The flesh and blood on his left shoulder were incinerated, and it revealed an expanse of ghastly white bones.
However, Chen Xi seemed to be completely indifferent to it. After he blasted Jin Qingyang back, Chen Xi didn’t stop at all before he continued his assault against Yue Ruhuo.
That pair of blood red crescents had finally been slashed into pieces beneath Chen Xi’s terrifying and murderous sword qi. Yue Ruhuo seemed to have suffered backlash from this, and he let out a shrill cry while blood seeped out from his eyes. It was an extremely shocking scene.
This was extremely understandable. If Chen Xi was still unable to obtain an advantage in the battle after paying the price of suffering an injury on his left shoulder, then Chen Xi wouldn’t be Chen Xi.
On that day, Le Wuhen had spoken frankly that only those existences in the top 10 of the Domain Enlightened Chart could go against Chen Xi, and even he wasn’t confident in his ability to go against Chen Xi.
On the other hand, Jin Qingyang was far from being unable to compare to Yuqiu Jing, so if he hadn’t launched a pincer attack against Chen Xi with Yue Ruhuo, then he would have probably been killed by Chen Xi since a long time ago.
“Who exactly are you!?” Yue Ruhuo roared furiously from pain. He’d never imagined that under the circumstances that he’d joint forces with Jin Qingyang, his strength was actually unable to do anything to this young man before him that he’d never heard of.
Chen Xi remained silent, and his expression was indifferent and murderous. Time was of the essence and the situation was pressing, so he didn’t have the leisure to waste even a bit of time.
He held the Talisman Armament in hand and seemed like a peerless emperor of the sword. Sword Insight shot into the sky from his entire body, and he seemed to reveal an oppressive bearing of supremacy over the entire world.
In an instant, he’d exchanged over 100 blows with Yue Ruhuo.
After that, a muffled bang resounded as Yue Ruhuo was blasted flying once more. Moreover, Yue Ruhuo’s chest had been blasted apart, and fresh blood streamed out from it.
If Jin Qingyang hadn’t arrived in time to assist Yue Ruhuo, then merely this strike would have been sufficient to take Yue Ruhuo’s life!
“Bastard!” Yue Ruhuo seemed as if he’d gone mad.
Who was he? He was the overlord in the younger generation of the Bloodmoon Clan in the Imperial Region, an existence that was ranked at the 14th position on the Domain Enlightened Chart. So, when had he ever suffered such a huge loss?
Most aggrieving to him was that Chen Xi didn’t possess a resounding reputation and wasn’t a figure on the Domain Enlightened Chart.
The Fire Dragon Hood shook violently in the battlefield and sparks shot out from it while it almost escaped Jin Qingyang’s control. At this moment, Jin Qingyang was crushed by a strand of sword qi as well, and he was injured once more, causing him to bleed from all seven apertures and fall into a miserable state.
At this point, both Yue Ruhuo and Jin Qingyang were injured!
When they witnessed this scene, Tao Dong and Wei Zifu were shocked to the point their jaws almost hit the ground, and they were stunned on the spot.
Chen Xi was too formidable!
Earlier, they were extremely worried, and Tao Dong even wished for nothing more than for Chen Xi to hand the fifth-grade Ancestral Dao Root over in order to avoid disaster.
But who would have imagined that Chen Xi wouldn’t just be able to avoid falling into a disadvantaged position while facing the pincer attack of two Spirit God Exalts, he even crushed them both and heavily injured them in succession! His unparalleled heroic bearing was simply matchless!
“I thought that he would use the Mindnet Shell and seek assistance from Le Wuhen and the others. But now it would see like… there’s obviously no need for that.” Tao Dong muttered, and he was shocked to the extreme.
“All of us underestimated him. Perhaps only Miss Yanran was wise enough to recognize how extraordinary he is.” Wei Zifu exclaimed endlessly with shock.
The battle was still going on.
Chen Xi’s attacks hadn’t stopped at all since the battle began, and he seemed as if he intended to annihilate them.
On the other hand, after they were injured, both Yue Ruhuo and Jin Qingyang’s will to fight had been impacted. Even if they were still fighting together now, they were unable to resist the brunt of Chen Xi’s attacks, and they were suppressed to the point of ceaselessly suffering injuries and were on the verge of defeat.
After a short moment, Yue Ruhuo was blasted flying once more. Countless bones in his body had been broken, and the vital energy in his entire body was on the verge of collapse.
At practically the exact same time, Chen Xi slashed with his sword.
He severed one of Jin Qingyang’s arms, causing blood to spray and dye the sky red.
“AH!!!” Jin Qingyang howled miserably with pain. At this moment, he finally felt terrified, and he knew that even if he joined forces with Yue Ruhuo, they were still absolutely not a match for this kid before him.
This kid was too formidable, and the kid’s Sword Dao was terrifying beyond his imagination. It simply seemed as if it couldn’t be defeated!
“He won! He actually won….” Tao Dong was frightened out of his wits.
“What do you mean by that!?” Wei Zifu glared fiercely at Tao Dong and said, “Could it be that you wanted Chen Xi to lose?”
“No…. How could I dare to….” Tao Dong instantly explained yet was unable to speak coherently because he was truly too shocked.
Wei Zifu originally intended to say something, yet he suddenly looked towards the distance and said with shock, “Chen Xi… wouldn’t be thinking of killing them, right? They’re Spirit God Exalts. So, once they’re killed, Chen Xi would probably utterly offend the powers that stand behind them!”
Tao Dong was shocked in his heart as well, and he was astounded to the extreme. He was clearly aware that even though that everyone was competing with each other here, when the battles involved peerless geniuses like Spirit God Exalts, then these Spirit God Exalts would usually be spared. This was done in order to avoid offending the powers standing behind these Spirit God Exalts.
However, if Chen Xi really killed Yue Ruhuo and Jin Qingyang, then it would probably infuriate the Imperial Region’s Bloodmoon Clan and Goldrock Clan. If it came to that, then there would probably be no place for Chen Xi in the entire Ancient God Domain.
At this moment, the new layer of skin had already formed on Chen Xi’s left shoulder, and his imposing aura was even more oppressive and domineering.
He didn’t care who he offended. Since one intended to kill him, then he would naturally not hold back. Moreover, he’d never feared anyone since he’d started cultivating until now.
Including the Sovereign Sect!
“What do you think you’re doing? Could it be that you truly intend to kill us?” As he watched Chen Xi walk over, Yue Ruhuo was shocked, terrified, and furious. This fellow is simple too ruthless. Exactly where did such a freak like him come from?
Jin Qingyan was even terrified to the point of howling furiously. “Chen Xi, if you dare to act in this way, then no one in the world will be able to save you!”
Chen Xi remained silent. He wouldn’t show any mercy to his enemies, and their threats wouldn’t affect him at all.
However, right when Chen Xi intended to end this battle completely, his eyes suddenly narrowed as he glanced towards the distance.
After that, he withdrew his gaze. He gazed at Yue Ruhuo and Jin Qingyang who were standing ready to fight desperately for their lives, Chen Xi sighed in his heart before he turned around and left.
“Let’s go!” In the next moment, he brought the puzzled Tao Dong and Wei Zifu along as he teleported away and swiftly vanished on the spot.
“That fellow actually backed down….” Yue Ruhuo was stunned, and he still felt slight disbelief. He swore to god that he absolutely certain that Chen Xi had already aroused killing intent just now!
But why did Chen Xi back down in the end?
“Hmph! I knew he didn’t have the courage!” Jin Qingyang gritted his teeth as he picked up his severed arm, and his face was covered in resentment.
Yue Ruhuo shook his head. “That wasn’t the case at all.”
“Then why?” Jin Qingyang frowned.
Right at this moment, a wave of fluctuation arose in space, and then a group of people appeared. There was over 20 people in the group, and the person in the lead was shockingly Gongye Zhefu!
When they saw this group appear, Yue Ruhuo and Jin Qingyang exchanged glances, and both of them went silent. They finally understood why Chen Xi had left.
“What exactly happened here?”
“Brother Ruhuo, Brother Qingyang, how did the both of you… how did the both of you end up like this?”
“Who exactly did this?”
When Gongye Zhefu’s group witnessed the scene of bloody desolation in the surroundings, all of them couldn’t help but burst into an uproar, and they were shocked to the point their faces turned grim.
“How did this happen?” Gongye Zhefu’s face turned grim, and he gazed at Yue Ruhuo.
All of them had formed an alliance since a long time ago. After they entered the Ancestral Root Grounds, they’d split into two groups to search for Ancestral Dao Roots. Yet never had he imagined that such a shocking and unexpected event would occur to Yue Ruhuo’s group. Not only had over 10 cultivators fallen, even Yue Ruhuo and Jin Qingyang were heavily injured, and this caused Gongye Zhefu to be extremely furious in his heart as well.
Yue Ruhuo’s heart was filled with aggrievance and bitterness. However, in the end, he still described everything that occurred just now, and he didn’t conceal anything.
At this moment, he couldn’t care about saving face because he’d already lost all face after suffering such a miserable defeat.
When they heard that all of this was caused by a single person, all of them felt extremely shocked in their hearts, and if it wasn’t Yue Ruhuo himself that told all of this to them, they would almost not dare believe it.
Isn’t that fellow… the pretty boy that played up to Miss Yanran? How could his strength be so formidable?
Since he’s able to accomplish this, then why isn’t his name on the Domain Enlightened Chart?
“Chen Xi….” Gongye Zhefu frowned while a tall figure couldn’t help but float up into his mind, and he muttered. Could it be that I misjudged him?
He’d utterly not noticed that when Zhen Liuqing who’d been standing silently by his side heard all of this, a wisp of extraordinary splendor had flashed in the depths of her clear eyes before vanishing right afar.
“Yes, it was him.” Jin Qingyang gritted his teeth and spoke in a low voice. “Even though I’m unwilling to admit it, but I have to say that this fellow’s combat strength is too terrifying. Even Brother Ruhuo and I together were unable to harm him. In my opinion, his strength is even sufficient to be ranked in the top 10 of the Domain Enlightened Chart!
The top 10!
Everyone’s hearts jerked once more. That fellow who popped out from nowhere is actually so formidable?
“Haha. I’m feeling slightly curious now once I’ve heard you say all of that.” Gongye Zhefu’s eyes flowed with a cold glow.
In the next moment, he took a deep breath, and then he recovered his calm before he said swiftly. “Let’s find a place for the two of you to rest while we continue searching for Ancestral Dao Roots. Both of you have to strive to recover from your injuries before the Genesis Ancestral Root appears.”
The others nodded.
“As for that kid, Chen Xi… I’ll look for an opportunity in the future to see exactly how great his ability is!” As he spoke, Gongye Zhefu’s gaze shot over intentionally towards Zhen Liuqing, and he couldn’t help but frown when he noticed her indifferent expression. After that, he shook his head.
In the depths of a desolate chain of mountains in the Ancestral Root Grounds.
A wave of fluctuation arose in space, and then the figures of Chen Xi, Tao Dong, and Wei Zifu appeared.
“Gongye Zhefu….” Chen Xi pondered deeply, and then he sighed in the end.
If it was possible, he wished for nothing more than to kill Gongye Zhefu right now. In this way, he would be able to complete the task Empress Yu Che entrusted to him and probe Zhen Liuqing’s true intentions.
Unfortunately, the time wasn’t right. Out of consideration for their safety, he couldn’t disregard everything and act in this way.
“Let’s look for a place to rest for a while, and we’ll continue tomorrow.” Chen Xi shook his head and stopped thinking about it. The important matter at hand was to recover from his injuries and restore his physical strength.
