A mysterious fluctuation suffused the spatial passageway.
Chen Xi took a deep breath before he cupped his fists and said, “Eldest Senior Brother, take care of yourself.”
Wu Xuechan smiled as he nodded. “Go, quickly.”
Chen Xi immediately stopped hesitating, and he stepped into the spatial passageway with Empress Yu Che.
What’s that? At the instant before he left, Chen Xi inadvertently noticed an expanse of darkness sweeping over from the depths of the universe. It swallowed numerous galaxies as it swept over at an unbelievable speed.
It was also at this instant that Wu Xuechan suddenly turned around. His snow white hair fluttered while he flashed over to greet that darkness that was devouring its way over….
Space circulated and rumbled. In the next instant, Chen Xi felt the scene before his eyes flash and change while he swiftly vanished on the spot.
This spatial passageway Wu Xuechan created was extremely special. Even though didn’t move at all upon entering it, it felt as if one was whistling through the universe and traversing the world.
“That expanse of darkness….” Chen Xi still felt shocked and terrified in his heart. He faintly guessed that the darkness was possible the imposing aura and might of the Divine Sovereign Priest of the Sovereign Sect.
“Every single one of the Divine Sovereign Priests reign supreme above the Imperial Monarch Realm. They possess unfathomable and immeasurable might.” Empress Yu Che spoke from the side with a clear and pleasant voice. “This realm above the Imperial Monarch Realm is the Daolord Realm. They can rebuild the universe with a flick of their finger and transform the Heaven Dao for their own use!”
The Daolord Realm! Chen Xi was shocked in his heart, and he suddenly recalled the Roc Daolord whose corpse had formed the Last Days Domain. Could he be an existence that possessed such a cultivation realm?
All those years ago when Chen Xi entered the Last Days Domain from the three dimensions, he’d encountered the Primeval Micro Race by chance, and only then did he find out that the Last Days Domain was formed from the corpse of the Roc Daolord.
At that time, he was still surprised and wondered what sort of cultivation realm would be required to accomplish that. Now, when he heard Empress Yu Che mention all of this, he instantly came to a slight understanding.
The path of cultivation as a god didn’t just encompass the World Enlightened True God, Domain Enlightened Spirit God, and Universe Enlightened Ancestral God Realm. The Imperial Monarch Realm and Daolord Realm stood above these three realms of cultivation!
For example, Empress Yu Che, Imperial Monarch Gou Chen, and Imperial Monarch Chong Dou were existences at the Imperial Monarch Realm. They possessed the supreme might to transform the world and control a myriad of Daos.
On the other hand, the Daolord Realm was clearly more terrifying than the Imperial Monarch Realm and reigned supreme above it. Moreover, existences at the Daolord Realm could rebuild the universe and transform the Heaven Dao for their own use!
For example, the Divine Sovereign Priest was clearly an existence at the Daolord Realm.
“There’s no need to worry about him. Based on my observation, his cultivation has probably ascended to the Daolord Realm, otherwise, it would absolutely be impossible for him to smash Imperial Monarch Chong Dou to his knees with a single strike.” Empress Yu Che’s clear eyes glistened and were suffused with a wisp of extraordinary splendor.
“The Daolord Realm, huh?” Chen Xi sighed with emotion in his heart. He originally thought that this speed of cultivation was already sufficiently swift, and he was only a step away from attaining the Universe Enlightened Ancestral God Realm.
However, never had he imagined that his Eldest Senior Brother had already attained such an inconceivable height.
If I make an inference based on this, then exactly what sort of cultivation has that Master of mine which I’ve never met, the Master of Oracle Mountain, Fuxi, attained?
Chen Xi took a deep breath, and then he shook his head before he said to Empress Yu Che, “Senior, I have to thank you for lending a hand this time.”
“I should actually thank you instead.” Empress Yu Che said, “If the Grand Lord didn’t arrive in time, then I would have probably fallen into the joint encirclement of three red robed Grand Priests from the Sovereign Sect.”
“You… have enmity with the Sovereign Sect as well?” Chen Xi couldn’t help but ask this question.
“Yes. Precisely speaking, I have enmity with the Gongye Clan.” Empress Yu Che’s clear eyes were suffused with a wisp of coldness. She said in a light voice, “Actually, it’s all the same. Because the Gongye Clan is a vassal of the Sovereign Sect, and most of its members are disciples, priests, and elders of the Sovereign Sect.”
As for exactly what sort of enmity there was between them, Empress Yu Che didn’t say.
However, merely this alone allowed Chen Xi to fully understand some things.
For example, it was definitely because of the enmity and hatred between them that Empress Yu Che had instructed him to stop Gongye Zhefu from seizing the ninth-grade Emperor Rank Ancestral Dao Root.
“Senior, exactly how formidable are the forces of the Sovereign Sect in the Imperial Region?” Chen Xi couldn’t restrain himself from asking this question.
“Call me Yu Che in the future.” Empress Yu Che corrected Chen Xi’s method of address before she said, “The Imperial Region is the core of the Ancient God Domain, and its territory is so vast that it covered 8,000 universes. Moreover, there are countless ancient sects and clans scattered throughout it.
“However, only a small portion of them can be considered to be top-rate powers. For example, the Luo Clan, Gongye Clan, Yu Clan…. All of them are top-rate clans.
“On the other hand, existences like the Buddhist Sect, Tripure Sect, Secluded Light Mountain, Heavenly Fortune Palace, Golden Toad Isle, and so on and so forth are ancient sects that have stood towering for countless years.
“However, merely a few can be considered to be supreme sects, and amongst them is Oracle Mountain, Nuwa’s Dao Palace, the Sovereign Sect, the Dao Institute, and Divine Institute. They’re called the five extremes of the Imperial Region.”
Empress Yu Che casually described the powers within the Imperial Region in a concise manner.
Chen Xi was extremely shocked when he heard this. He hadn’t imagined that Oracle Mountain, Nuwa’s Dao Palace, and the Sovereign Sect weren’t just supreme in the three dimensions, they even possessed such shocking power and influence in the Ancient God Domain.
However, Chen Xi had a limited knowledge about the Dao Institute and Divine Institute. But since they were able to be ranked amongst Oracle Mountain, Nuwa’s Dao Palace, and the Sovereign Sect as the ‘five extremes of the Imperial Region’, he knew that they were definitely extraordinary.
“Now you understand that the Sovereign Sect is one such supreme power.” Empress Yu Che’s voice carried a wisp of coldness. “It has countless disciples, and they can be differentiated according to increasing strength as disciples, Elite Disciples, Elders, Red Robed Grand Priests, Divine Sovereign Priests, and then it’s the Sect Master himself.”
“Normally speaking, existences at the Divine Sovereign Priest rank wouldn’t be dispatched easily, and even if it’s the Red Robed Grand Priests at the Imperial Monarch Realm, they rarely make an appearance in the world unless a great and unexpected event occurred.”
Empress Yu Che was obviously very well aware of the Sovereign Sect’s structure. “All those that are capable of assuming the position of elder in the Sovereign Sect possess a cultivation at the Universe Enlightened Ancestral God Realm while all Elite Disciples are at the Domain Enlightened Spirit God Realm, and ordinary disciples are around the World Enlightened True God Realm.”
Chen Xi finally came to a complete understanding. In the past while he was in the three dimensions, he thought the highest realm of cultivation in the Sovereign Sect was at the Godrank Realm.
But now it would seem like it was obviously not the case.
For example, the Elite Disciples of the Sovereign Sect that he’d killed like Suiren Ting and Yin Huaikong. At that time, because they were suppressed by the energy of the Heaven Dao in the three dimensions, they were only able to bring forth a strength at the World Enlightened True God Realm.
For example, the Universe Enlightened Ancestral God Realm expert of the Sovereign Sect, Ye Yan, that he defeated once was clearly an elder of the Sovereign Sect.
Further up from this were the Red Robed Grand Priests at the Imperial Monarch Realm, the Divine Sovereign Priests at the Daolord Realm, and then… Sect Master!
“Looks like toppling the Sovereign Sect is even more difficult that I expected….” Chen Xi sighed.
Empress Yu Che’s clear eyes squinted, and she said with slight surprise, “Toppling the Sovereign Sect?”
Chen Xi smiled and didn’t speak any further about it. He changed the topic and frowned as he said, “Right, helping me escape this time was equivalent to completely offending those great powers from the Imperial Region. In the future, I’m afraid that….”
Empress Yu Che interrupted him with an indifferent tone. “I’m all alone, and I don’t intend to return to Snow Ink Region any longer. So, it isn’t so easy for them to deal with me now.”
“What about Yun Qing?” Chen Xi couldn’t help but ask about Yun Qing.
“He has already received my instructions to conceal his identity, and he’d naturally contact me once I return to the Imperial Region one day.” Empress Yu Che seemed to have made arrangements for everything since a long time ago. When she spoke up to here, she looked at Chen Xi and said, “What do you intend to do next?”
Chen Xi shrugged. “I naturally intend to head to Arambha Temple on Logia Mountain in the South Sea Region.”
Empress Yu Che seemed to be lost in thought as she said, “The South Sea Region is said to be the ‘Paradise of all Races’. There are all sorts of ancient races like demons, devils, spirits, fairies, ghosts, goblins…. It can be said that a myriad of races reside there like trees in a forest, and there’s no lack of some extremely formidable races there like the True Roar-Tiger Race, the Bi’an Race, the Bai Ze Race, and so on and so forth. Compared to the Imperial Region, the distribution of powers there is complicated to the extreme.”
Chen Xi was stunned, and then he said with a smile, “The more complicated the better, because it will be safer.”
“Exactly what I was thinking.” Empress Yu Che smiled, and then her brows raised. “However, even though I know that Logia Mountain resides within Cloud Dream Universe, I’ve never heard of a place of cultivation called Arambha Temple residing there.”
Chen Xi was slightly surprised. He originally thought that a sect that Wu Xuechan mentioned would definitely be a renowned existence. Yet who would have imagined that even Empress Yu Che had actually not heard of it with all the experience and knowledge she possessed.
“We can inquire about it after we get there.” Chen Xi pondered deeply for a moment before he spoke.
Empress Yu Che nodded.
10 minutes passed as they chatted just like this.
A wave of violent fluctuation suddenly arose in the spatial passageway, and then it collapsed inch by inch and transformed into a rain of light that poured down towards the surroundings.
In the next moment, Chen Xi and Empress Yu Che had already arrived in an unfamiliar expanse of space.
This expanse of space was extremely vast. A myriad of stars circulated within it, and expanse after expanse of dreamlike mist and clouds floated within the universe. Moreover, they were multicolored and painted a rather beautiful picture.
“The Grand Lord really is extraordinary.” Empress Yu Che glanced at the surroundings, and she couldn’t help but praise. “That passageway traversed across 197 regions and was still able to lead precisely to Cloud Dream Universe. Such supreme ability isn’t something an Imperial Monarch can accomplish.”
Chen Xi said with surprise, “This is Cloud Dream Universe where Logia Mountain resides?”
“Yes. Look at that expanse of the starry sky. Dreamlike mist and clouds cover the surroundings. Logia Mountain is situated on Putuo Star that resides there.
Empress Yu Che pointed towards the distance. There was a light blue star there, and it emanated a glow that rippled like water.
Suddenly, she seemed to have noticed something, and divine radiance flowed throughout her body. In the next moment, her appearance had changed completely.
A green blouse, white skirt, a feathered crown on the head, black gauze to cover the face, and a simple and elegant bearing. When compared to the past, she’d lost the supreme and mighty imposing aura she possessed.
Right when Chen Xi was puzzled by this, he suddenly noticed something, and he sensed a group of people flashing over from afar.
“My appearance from before was too conspicuous, and it’s easy for it to cause trouble.” Empress Yu Che explained in a low voice.
This served as a reminder to Chen Xi. He grinned lightly while his appearance changed abruptly, and he became an extremely ordinary young man that possessed an ordinary appearance and bearing.
Swoosh! Swoosh! Swoosh!
Right at this moment, that group of people had teleported over.
