None were able to imagine how Chen Xi has passed through the layers of obstructions and ascended the white jade staircase that led to Violetsky Dao Palace.
Not a single one of them was able to imagine where Chen Xi got the courage to enter the Door of the Grand Dao by himself.
Moreover, none of them had imagined that not only was he able to avoid being killed by the dangers within the Door of the Grand Dao, he’d even ascended to the peak of Master Xuan’s Mountain before them!
All of this seemed to be so unbelievable and so impossible to believe. Thus, when they saw Chen Xi, not only were their hearts unable to calm down, they even felt a form of astonishment and disbelief.
Why was it that while we overcame numerous obstacles all along the way, experienced all sorts of killing intent and hardships, and finally arrived here with great difficulty after relying on all sorts of methods, Chen Xi was able to arrive before us on his own?
This caused all of their hearts to be unable to stay calm.
Especially because most of the members of Luo Shaonong’s group had entered into conflict or had enmity with Chen Xi in the past. At this moment, these grudges and the jealousy they felt now surged into their hearts, and it caused their expressions to be extremely complicated and varied.
This wasn’t fear, and it was a form of disbelief and inability to accept the facts before their eyes.
On the other hand, Chen Xi gazed at their group while his originally calm and tranquil expression started to gradually turn indifferent.
The 10 Suncrows unfolded their wings and flew through the sky while emanating dazzling golden light, and it enveloped the mountain peak, ocean of clouds, and sky with a layer of brilliant golden color.
At the center of the mountain peak, the ancient Master Xuan’s Divine Temple stood towering while emanating a solemn and grand aura, and strands of sweet fragrance and a rain of light effused out from it.
The atmosphere here was originally tranquil and divine, but at this moment, it had become slightly deathly silent and carried a confrontational and tense aura.
Luo Shaonong’s brows raised, and they he smiled and said in an unhurried manner, “Hah! I never expected that you were actually able to leave Godsfall Ruins alive.”
Di Jun licked his scarlet red lips, and he spoke with a sharp and feminine voice. “We finally meet again. It’s good that you’re alive because I’ve been always thinking about playing with you!”
Gongye Zhefu said coldly, “You again? You’re like a ghost that refuses to go away!”
Kunwu Qing said with astonishment, “Fellow Daoist, it’s the fourth time we’re meeting, right? What a coincidence.”
Pei Wei revealed a resentful expression, and he squeezed two words out from the cracks between his teeth. “Chen Xi!”
At this moment, all of them had actually spoken at the exact same time, and they seemed to have never expected that all the others by their sides seemed to have enmity with Chen Xi.
This caused all of them to frown. If it wasn’t because the situation didn’t allow it, they’d almost been unable to refrain themselves from asking each other exactly how they’d gotten into conflict with Chen Xi.
However, this allowed them to understand that this fellow, Chen Xi, hadn’t just offended them, and even the others by their sides had been offended by Chen Xi. This fellow… is truly a scourge!
Amongst the people present, only Yue Ruhuo, Jin Qingyang, and Zhen Liuqing didn’t speak. However, both Yue Ruhuo and Jin Qingyang had extremely gloomy expressions, and the hatred in their eyes was clear as daylight.
As for Zhen Liuqing, her expression only revealed slightly astonishment at the beginning before she recovered her composure and remained silent. She seemed as if her mind was distracted and preoccupied.
When he heard their overbearing words and noticed the hostility on their faces, Chen Xi’s expression didn’t change much. His gaze merely narrowed imperceptibly when it descended onto Zhen Liuqing, and then he moved his gaze away.
From the beginning until the end, he didn’t speak a single word, yet he similarly didn’t reveal a trace of fear and cowardice, and his expression grew even more indifferent.
“You’re all alone, yet you dared to make enemies of everyone. Should I say that your courage deserves compliment, or should I say that you’re arrogant and ignorant?” Luo Shaonong spoke slowly, and he seemed as if victory was within his grasp. “That day, you seized an eighth-grade Ancestral Dao Root and four seventh-grade Ancestral Dao Roots of mine. Could it be that you’re wishfully thinking of seizing that Imperial Sovereign Dao Root this time?”
Many of them were stunned and slightly surprised. They’d never imagined that Chen Xi would actually be so audacious and had once seized so many rare Ancestral Dao Roots from Luo Shaonong.
“Seize?” A wisp of a chilly arc suffused the corners of Chen Xi’s mouth. “Luo Shaonong, lying brazenly is pretty shameless.”
Luo Shaonong smiled, yet his gaze was icy cold. “In my opinion, you seized what belonged to me. You’re unconvinced of that fact? Then so what about it? Do you think that a piece of trash that came out of nowhere like you would have the right to argue with me?”
His voice carried a strand of dense contempt, and it even carried a form of humiliation and slander towards Chen Xi’s status.
As soon as these words were spoken, the others couldn’t help but laugh, and they looked at Chen Xi with proud, cold, and indifferent expressions that carried a wisp of disdain.
They were from the Imperial Region, and every single one of them was from a top-rate clan. They possessed extraordinary origins and respected statuses. Moreover, they possessed the potential of a Spirit God Exalt, and this was sufficient for them to look down proudly upon most people in the younger generation.
In their eyes, at this moment, Chen Xi was like an ant that could only be trampled at their will, and he was all alone, pitiable, and laughable.
Indeed, Chen Xi’s combat strength was extraordinary, and it was even to the extent that he could defeat Yue Ruhuo and Jin Qingyang, but so what about that?
After all, they still had figures like Luo Shaonong and Gongye Zhefu on their side! Coupled with the joint forces of all of them who were Spirit God Exalts, even Yea Chen who was ranked at the 1st position on the Domain Enlightened Chart would probably have no choice but to temporarily avoid them, let alone Chen Xi?
Chen Xi had experienced such humiliating words and disdainful expressions on countless occasions, so he seemed extremely indifferent and composed when facing all of this. He seemed as if he would remain calm and composed no matter what happened.
“You’re wrong. I’ve never intended to argue with all of you.” In the end, Chen Xi just shook his head and said calmly, “That would be no different from preaching to deaf ears. Not to mention that all of you’re unworthy of receiving such treatment.”
These words didn’t infuriate Luo Shaonong and the others, and it seemed like they’d heard an absurd joke instead and started roaring with laughter.
It felt like they heard a beggar saying the emperor wasn’t worthy of possessing equal status as him, and it caused them to almost think that Chen Xi had gone mad.
Only the corners of Zhen Liuqing’s mouth twitched while she seemed to have recalled some matters of the past, causing her clear eyes to be suffused with a wisp of frustration, and then she grew even quieter.
“Haha. Brother Luo, why waste your breath on him. Allow me to kill this ignorant bastard so as to avoid wasting our time.” Di Jun roared with laughter as he strode forward, and his eyes were suffused with a wisp of a bloodthirsty and mad color. He raised his fingers to gesture in a provocative manner at Chen Xi as if he was taunting Chen Xi to come forward and fight him, and then he said, “Come, come, come! I’ve been accumulating a bellyful of anger since a long time ago because I wasn’t able to play with you to my heart’s content on that day. This time, I can’t let you off no matter what!”
His voice was sharp and feminine, and it revealed an arrogant tone.
Chen Xi’s brows raised, and he suddenly smiled as he said, “Play? Alright.”
At this instant, Chen Xi’s imposing aura changed. His gaze was like a bolt of lightning, and a fierce aura erupted from his entire body and shot into the sky.
“Wait!” However, right at this moment, Luo Shaonong spoke abruptly. His eyes narrowed as he sized Chen Xi up, and then he instructed Yue Ruhuo and Jin Qingyang. “Join forces with Di Jun and strive to deal with this kid in one go.”
These instructions caused everyone to be stunned, and they were slightly surprised. They felt that Luo Shaonong was being too careful and cautious.
Especially Di Jun, he even spoke with displeasure. “Hmph! I alone am enough!”
As he spoke, his long hair fluttered, and battle intent surged like blood within his body. He suddenly strode forward and tore through space as he shot explosively towards Chen Xi.
A blood red curved blade left its sheathe. It was like a blood red sun soaring into the sky, and it carried a myriad of strands of dazzling divine radiance as it rumbled down towards Chen Xi.
“Little bastard! Die!” Die Jun roared.
The light of his blade was blood red like purgatory, and it formed the terrifying scenes of boundless Fiendgods roaring furiously and a bloody river raging. It simply seemed as if it was on the verge of slashing the sky into two and causing all things to be drowned beneath its blood red glow.
This strike vividly displayed the might possessed by an existence ranked at the 12th on the Domain Enlightened Chart. Obviously, even though Di Jun seemed to be arrogant, he hadn’t been careless at all, and he utilized his full strength as soon as he attacked.
Fortunately, this fellow didn’t act carelessly…. Luo Shaonong shook his head in secret because he’d discerned that Di Jun had utilized a lethal move.
At this moment, chilly and terrifying killing intent swept over. Chen Xi’s long hair fluttered along with his clothes, yet he didn’t move as if he’d been scared stiff.
However, right when that wisp of blood red blade light was about to arrive before him, a strand of divine radiance suddenly erupted from his eyes.
In the next moment, a wisp of sword qi slashed out.
Everyone felt something flash before their eyes before they heard a bang resound. The blade light that smashed down like a blood red moon was blasted into pieces, and it transformed into a rain of light that dispersed into the surroundings.
After that, Di Jun’s figure that was charging explosively towards Chen Xi seemed as if it had been forcefully struck, and his entire body was blasted flying at an even swifter speed. His body smashed the space behind him into pieces before he finally crashed into the ground. The bones in his entire body emanated cracking sounds while blood flowed from both his mouth and nose.
“AH!!!” He let out a howl of pain, and he was shocked and furious to the limit in his heart. How could this be possible?
The pupils of the others constricted, and they almost didn’t dare believe their eyes.
All of this had occurred too quickly. They hadn’t even discerned how Chen Xi attacked, yet Di Jun who approached menacingly was blasted flying by a single strike. This was simply inconceivable.
They were clearly aware that if Di Jun hadn’t defended himself in time, then merely this strike alone would have been sufficient to take Di Jun’s life!
“Again!” Amidst a furious roar, Di Jun suddenly shot into the sky. His eyes were bloodshot while his expression was savage, and he was like a bloody devil god from hell and had gone completely mad.
He was unable to accept all of this, and he thought that it was because he’d been careless. So, he utilized all his strength with the intention of continuing the battle.
At this moment, there was no need for Luo Shaonong to remind them. Yue Ruhuo and Jin Qingyang exchanged glances before they charged out in unison, and they utilized the techniques they were most skilled at as they launched a pincer attack against Chen Xi.
“You two go as well.” Luo Shaonong glanced at Kunwu Qing and Pei Wen who stood by his side, and he instructed in a low voice. Because that strike from before caused a trace of anxiousness and doubt to arise in his heart, and he didn’t dare be careless.
Kunwu Qing and Pei Wen were hesitant because they didn’t feel they were a match for Chen Xi.
“Quickly!” Luo Shaonong frowned. “What’re the two of you afraid of when Gongye Zhefu and I are here!?”
Kunwu Qing and Pei Wen’s hearts jerked, and they knew they were unable to refuse. So, they immediately braced themselves and charged into the battlefield.
