At this moment, Ye Yan was overwhelmed by rage, and she’d completely lost control.
She’d utterly never imagined that a little fellow who’d been completely crushed by her a few years ago would have actually grown to such an extent.
He’d merely relied on a cultivation at the initial-stage of the Universe Enlightened Ancestral God Realm to crush her, and from the beginning until the end, she actually didn’t have any room to retaliate!
This enormous gap in their strength was something Ye Yan was entire unable to accept in a short period of time.
Especially when she saw Chen Xi look down at her in the manner of a victor. Ye Yan was simply angry and humiliated to the point of being on the verge of collapse.
“Kill me if you have the balls! Come on!” Ye Yan continued shouting with rage.
However, Chen Xi withdrew the Banisher before he turned around and walked towards the distance. “You’re not allowed to take a single step into Arambha Temple within three years from now. Otherwise, don’t blame me for imprisoning you.”
“Trash! You have no balls!” Ye Yan was still furious and she cursed angrily while gazing at Chen Xi’s figure that was vanishing into the distance.
“If I wasn’t worried that your blood would dirty this paradise, do you think you would be able to survive until now? Stay there obediently and don’t bother me. Because if I’m unable to control myself and kill you, then it would be too late for you to regret your decision.” Chen Xi’s indifferent voice drifted over from the violet bamboo forest in the distance, and it was calm, indifferent, and without any emotion.
Ye Yan gnashed her teeth and cursed for a while. She was extremely furious in her heard, and a strand of a deep sense of defeat surged out from within her heart.
How could this have happened?
How could that fellow have grown so quickly?
Could it be that it’s really like the rumors said, and great figures at the Universe Enlightened Ancestral God Realm like Gongye Nanli and Di Yunqiu had lost at this fellow’s hands?
But he was merely at the Domain Enlightened Spirit God Realm then!
Ye Yan couldn’t help but recall a rumor from not too long ago, and she was stunned on the spot.
After a long time, she muttered. “Looks like this fellow definitely refined and absorbed a ninth-grade Emperor Rank Ancestral Dao Root when he advanced into the Universe Enlightened Ancestral God Realm. Moreover, he might have even obtained some sort of great fortune, otherwise, it would be absolutely impossible for his combat strength to be so abnormal….”
Right at this moment, a golden and nimble figure appeared from the violet bamboo forest in the distance, and it was the Gold-eyed Rhesus Monkey, Little Bao.
It shot furtive glances at Ye Yan while roaring endlessly with laughter. It seemed to be laughing at her for not being fully covered, faintly revealing patches of snow white skin, and being in an extremely sorry state.
“You monkey! What’re you laughing at!? I’ll dig out your brain if you continue laughing!” Ye Yan bit her teeth as she glared fiercely at Little Bao. After that, she stood up while a wave of divine radiance flowed around her body and enveloped her completely.
In the next moment, she’d already changed to a completely new dress.
Unexpectedly, Little Bao seemed to be in a muddled state at this moment. His eyes stared fixedly at Ye Yan while he had a wretched expression that was slightly… dirty.
Ye Yan was stunned. She glanced at her clothes and confirmed that she wasn’t exposing anything that shouldn’t be exposed. So, she couldn’t help but be bewildered. Has this monkey gone mad?
This monkey seems to be a… Gold-eyed Rhesus Monkey?
Ye Yan’s brows raised when she realized this, and her gorgeous and charming face instantly turned gloomy. She gnashed her teeth and stared at Little Bao as she said, “Earlier… you saw everything?”
Little Bao nodded while he slurped up a mouthful of saliva, and he seemed to be very honest.
Obviously, this monkey had accidentally utilized his eyes to see through the divine radiance that covered Ye Yan and witnessed the exquisite scene of her changing.
However, in Ye Yan’s opinion, it caused her to go completely berserk. She let out a sharp cry. “You shameless stinking money! You actually dared to spy on me while I fucking changed!”
As she spoke, she swung her whip forcefully at Little Bao.
“You’re very shameless, woman! It was you who changed right before me, so how can I, Little Bao, be to blame for it?” Little Bao chuckled instead, and he utilized the branches of the violet bamboo to flee towards the depths of the violet bamboo forest with a few swishes.
The attack of a Universe Enlightened Ancestral God like Ye Yan was actually unable to do anything to this Gold-eyed Rhesus Monkey.
“I… I… I… I’ll kill you, you stinking money!” Ye Yan was on the verge of exploding from rage. She stomped her feet fiercely before her figure tore through space and pursued Little Bao.
In the end, Ye Yan’s figure stopped abruptly.
Because Chen Xi was looking coldly at her from a short distance ahead, and his gaze simply seemed like one that was looking at a prisoner.
It caused Ye Yan’s face to flush red, and she gnashed her teeth with hatred to the point her teeth almost shattered into pieces.
But in the end, she grunted and casually found a rock to sit cross-legged on. This position just happened to allow her to lay eyes on the distant Arambha Temple that was sheltered by the bamboo forest.
There were many times that Ye Yan was almost unable to restrain herself from standing up and charging towards Arambha Temple. However, she restrained herself in the end when she saw Chen Xi’s tall figure in the distance.
She was very clearly aware that this stubborn bastard would definitely not allow her to succeed.
However, she felt extremely unwilling to stay here just like that.
“Get up.” Right at this moment, Chen Xi walked over.
“Why?” Ye Yan glared at him as she spoke.
Chen Xi didn’t say it a second time and just gazed coldly at her, causing terror to arise in her heart. She couldn’t help but cry out in rage. “Is where I sit any of your business? You’re simply a wicked bastard!”
Even though she spoke in this way, she was still unable to endure the pressure Chen Xi exuded upon her, and she stood up angrily from the rock before turning around and resting her body on a violet bamboo. At the same time, she felt a wave of anger and distress. If it wasn’t for the sake of paying a visit to the Temple Master, she would have definitely flicked her sleeve and left. How could she have possible endured such humiliation?
On the other hand, Chen Xi slowly sat down cross-legged on that rock, and then closed his eyes and started to meditate.
Ye Yan was instantly stunned when she witnessed this scene. She pointed at Chen Xi while she was angered to the point of being unable to speak smoothly. “You… you… you…. You’re simply… simply… going too far!”
This fellow actually drove me away for the sake of seizing that rock from me! This is clearly a form of provocation and humiliation!
“This was originally the place where I meditated. You didn’t even ask about it before occupying it for yourself. So, who’d going too far?” Chen Xi opened his eyes and glanced indifferently at her. “Besides that, you better be quiet. I’m most annoyed by women who speak too much.”
Ye Yan felt that she was on the verge of going mad. First, she was bashed up by Chen Xi, then that wretched monkey peeked on her while she was changing, and now she’d even been driven away by Chen Xi because of a single rock. All of these blows simply caused Ye Yan to be on the verge of losing all reason.
She, Ye Yan, was of noble birth, and she got everything she wanted since she started cultivating until now. She received the respect of others wherever she went, and she’d never experienced such blows in her life.
In an instant, she had the feeling of trying to take Chen Xi down with her.
However, she restrained herself in the end. Even if she died, she wasn’t willing to die with a despicable bastard like Chen Xi!
On this day, Ye Yan became the first guest that arrived at the Divine Arambha Garden, and she’d become the most unwelcomed guest as well.
During the next few days, Chen Xi didn’t pay any attention, and it was like he’d completely disregarded her existence.
On the other hand, after overcoming the blows she suffered in the beginning, she’d become quiet. She seemed to have come to terms with the situation and sat cross-legged beneath a violet bamboo while staring blankly at the Arambha Temple in the distance.
This violet bamboo forest recovered its peacefulness and tranquility of the past.
In the blink of an eye, half a month passed by swiftly.
On this day, Ye Yan frowned and for the first time after so long, she finally shot her gaze at Chen Xi who sat on the rock, and a wisp of a complicated expression couldn’t help but flash past her gorgeous face.
In next to no time, her expression recovered its calm and composure.
“I heard that you killed Luo Shaonong, Gongye Zhefu, and four more Spirit God Exalts in the Desolate Manku Ruins a few years ago?” Ye Yan spoke in a very abrupt manner, and she spoke about events from a few years ago.
Chen Xi remained motionless as he sat cross-legged on the rock, and his eyes were closed as if he hadn’t noticed at all.
Ye Yan seemed to be very calm at this moment, and she didn’t become furious from this ‘disregard’ from Chen Xi. She said indifferently instead, “But do you know that Gongye Zhefu wasn’t completely killed? His soul is still surviving until now.”
At this moment, Chen Xi finally opened his eyes, and he glanced at Ye Yang. “What exactly do you intend to say?”
He was slightly surprised in his heart because only he was clearly aware that he hadn’t killed Gongye Zhefu on that day, and he’d extracted Gongye Zhefu’s soul and confined it.
“Are you disappointed?” A wisp of a smile arose on the corners of Ye Yan’s mouth, and she said slowly, “Presently, the Gongye Clan thinks that Gongye Zhefu’s soul was taken away by a woman called Zhen Liuqing. The reason is that woman’s master is being held in the Gongye Clan. So, if she wanted to rescue her master, then she would definitely utilize Gongye Zhefu’s soul as the condition for an trade.”
Chen Xi couldn’t help but feel a wave of amusement when he heard this sort of perception, yet he still asked deliberately. “Why was she suspected?”
Ye Yan seemed to become even more relaxed when she saw Chen Xi was concerned about this matter, and she said slowly, “It’s very simple. It’s because that woman has inflicted with the Divine Black Lich Venom. Moreover, the Gongye Clan has already confirmed that this woman hadn’t perished in the Desolate Manku Ruins. So, she became the biggest suspect for the person that took Gongye Zhefu’s soul.”
When she spoke up to here, she seemed to have thought of something and said, “Oh, right. I heard that there’s some sort of relationship between you and that woman?”
Her voice carried a wisp of a sneer.
However, Chen Xi seemed as if he didn’t discern all of this, and he went silent for a long time before he said, “You’re mistaken. At that time, I didn’t intend to kill Gongye Zhefu at all.”
Ye Yan was stunned, and then she felt slight disbelief as she said with shock, “So, in this way, Gongye Zhefu’s soul was taken by you?”
Chen Xi didn’t deny it.
Ye Yan was shocked in her heart upon witnessing this. Her emotions rose and fell, and she said after a long time, “Then do you know the reason for my arrival here this time?”
Chen Xi glanced coldly at her. “You were entrusted to come here by the Gongye Clan?”
Ye Yan said frankly, “You can think of it in that way. Because in my previous estimations, since Zhen Liuqing had been inflicted by the Divine Black Lich Venom, then it would be utterly impossible to remove it without the secret technique possessed solely by the Gongye Clan. However, if she came to Arambha Temple, then she would be able to preserve her life. However, the hope of accomplishing this was extremely small. After all, the Temple Master isn’t a great saint, so how could she rescue a complete stranger?”
Chen Xi said, “Then why did you still come here?”
Ye Yan said slowly, “Even though the chances are tiny, it’s still a trace of hope in the end. Out of considerations for the Gongye Clan’s face, I had no choice but to come here. On the other hand, I have an even more important matter to deal with here.”
When she spoke up to here, she smiled secretively and didn’t speak any further.
At this moment, Chen Xi started smiling as well, and he said, “Then do you know why I’m here?”
