The starry sky was quiet and boundless, and the bronze coffin floated amidst it while being surrounded by stars and emanating an ancient and immense aura. It seemed to be extremely grand.
It was very difficult to imagine how just a coffin would actually be so huge.
The heavens and the earth were deathly silent. Chen Xi’s group stood in the starry sky, and they couldn’t help but feel a wisp of shock in their hearts as they gazed at everything that stood before them.
It was undoubtable that this was definitely the legendary tomb of the Ancestral Dragon Daolord!
In the countless years of the past, the Specter Galaxy had always been seen to be a forbidden area, and practically all the cultivators that came to explore Specter Galaxy and search for the fortuitous encounter here had perished on their paths here. None had ever succeeded.
Yet now, Chen Xi and the others had passed through numerous dangerous regions, traversed an extremely long distance in the starry sky, experienced numerous tests, and passed through the two restrictions at Dragon Ridge to finally arrive here and finally lay eyes upon the legendary tomb of the Ancestral Dragon Daolord. So, they sighed endlessly with emotion in their hearts, and they were unable to calm down for a long time.
It was even to the extent that they hadn’t imagined that while they were merely being pursued by their enemies, they would actually arrive here by chance. This clearly showed how the god of destiny played tricks on others, and how the matters of the world were unpredictable.
“We’re finally here….” After an unknown period of time, Dong Bowen’s sigh suddenly resounded amidst this deathly silent atmosphere.
He wore violet clothed, had a handsome appearance and seemed like a young man. Moreover, his eyes that were bright like bolts of lightning were suffused with the color of boundless emotion and age.
For the sake of charging into the Daolord Realm, he’d been trapped here for 8,000 years, and he’d finally seen a glimmer of hope now, so he was unable to calm down.
“That supreme fortune is definitely hidden here!” Senior White became excited, and his gaze burned with desire as he beamed with joy.
Senior White was born from within the Chaos and innately possessed the ability to see through everything. Moreover, with just a little bit of cultivation, he was able to possess great knowledge of both ancient and present information and discern all techniques of the world. He was said to be a Master of all.
However, it was precisely because of such heaven defying natural talent that he suffered the envy of the heavens. So, he would definitely encounter some tribulations during his cultivation, and if he was unable to overcome these tribulations, then he would perish!
Otherwise, his cultivation wouldn’t still be at the Domain Enlightened Spirit God Realm after he experienced the passage of countless years.
However, if he was able to obtain this fortune, then perhaps it would allow him to resist the tribulation that came from the Heaven Dao when he advanced!
So, Senior White was clearly excited when they finally arrived at the Ancestral Dragon Daolord’s tomb.
No matter if it was Dong Bowen or Senior White, they were determined to obtain the supreme fortune that existed here. At this moment, both of them had sighed successively with emotion, and it caused the atmosphere to suddenly become slightly delicate.
Dong Bowen’s eyes narrowed, and he fell into silence.
Senior White glanced at Dong Bowen’s figure while his excitement was gradually withdrawn and faintly replaced with a trace of vigilance.
Chen Xi, Little Bao, and Ye Yan noticed this at the first possible moment, and their hearts shook in unison.
The fortuitous encounter was within their reach. Under such circumstances, if Dong Bowen suddenly made a move against them, then the consequences would be unimaginable.
The atmosphere turned deathly silent. No one spoke, and no one made a move.
Even though they did speak at all, no matter if it was Chen Xi’s group or Dong Bo Wen, they were clearly aware that their cooperation all along the way here had ended at this moment!
As for whether they were friends of enemies, it was entirely up to Dong Bowen.
At this instant, Chen Xi finally realized that Senior White’s worried were entirely correct. When facing such a supreme fortune, it could really cause others to arouse malicious intent.
As it’s said, one shouldn’t have the intent to harm others, yet the intent to be vigilant against others was required. Even if Chen Xi felt that with Dong Bowen’s character, Dong Bowen wouldn’t do something despicable like acting ungratefully, but he didn’t dare to take no precautions at all.
Along with the passage of time, the atmosphere grew more and more deathly silent. The air was faintly filled with a confrontational atmosphere, and it was like a storm was brewing.
As he gazed at Dong Bowen’s motionless figure in the distance, Chen Xi’s eyes gradually narrowed. He was already prepared to immediately execute the Godslaughter Burst if the worse scenario occurred, and then he would utilize the Terminus Dao Insight to detonate some of the Natural Spirit Treasures that he had no use for!
The reason he intended to fight desperately like that was entirely because Dong Bowen wasn’t an ordinary Imperial Monarch. He was a peak Ninth Star Imperial Monarch. So, even if he was heavily injured right now, the strength he possessed was still far from something Chen Xi could compare to.
Little Bao became vigilant as well, and his pupils flickered with golden light.
Ye Yan clenched her fists silently, and her clear eyes were suffused with a wisp of a murderous and resolute aura.
At this moment when the atmosphere was growing more and more tense, Dong Bowen suddenly let out a long sigh, and then he turned around and glanced at Chen Xi and the others.
At this moment, his expression was calm, indifferent, cold, and without any emotion. It caused others to be unable to discern exactly what he was thinking in his heart.
However, when Chen Xi and the others met Dong Bowen’s gaze, a wisp of icy coldness couldn’t help but arise in their hearts.
Dong Bowen opened his mouth and seemed to intend to say something. Or perhaps, it could be said that after this period of silence, he seemed to have already made some sort of decision.
But right at this moment, he suddenly closed his mouth and swiftly turned around before a strand of piercingly cold divine radiance shot out explosively from his eyes like a bolt of lightning as he gazed at the bronze coffin that floated in the depths of the starry sky.
This scene seemed extremely sudden, and it caused Chen Xi and the others who were originally in an extremely vigilant state to be slightly stunned.
But right after that, they similarly noticed a trace of movement!
Suddenly, a strand of obscure fluctuation that was like tidewater arose silently from the surface of the bronze coffin, and it glistened.
Its aura was extremely mysterious. It was filled with indescribably might, and it caused others to be unable to help but arouse a wisp of reverence!
In merely a short moment, a droning sound that sounded like a dragon roar from within the lair of a dragon resounded throughout the heavens and the earth, and it caused even this quiet and boundless starry sky to tremble before it.
In the next instantly, a figure soundlessly floated up into appearance under the astounded gazes of Chen Xi and the others!
His figure was thin and aged, and he sat cross-legged on the bronze coffin while his entire body was enveloped beneath a layer of light silver starlight, causing his appearance to be impossible to discern.
However, his aura was deep like an abyss, and it seemed as if it was connected with the heavens and fused with the earth. It conformed with everything in the world, and it possessed terrifying might that was capable of controlling all the myriad of the Daos in the world and reign supreme over the ages.
When looked at from afar, it was like a supreme god of creation had descended!
It was too terrifying!
Who would have imagined that a figure with such unfathomable divine might would actually appear on the bronze coffin which resided in the Ancestral Dragon Daolord’s tomb?
Who was he?
Why did he make an appearance here?
At this moment, Chen Xi finally understood why Dong Bowen’s attitude had suddenly changed and Dong Bowen had moved his attention to the bronze coffin.
Because compared to Chen Xi’s group, Dong Bowen clearly attached more importance to this figure that had appeared abruptly, and he had no choice but to concentrate fully to deal with it!
“When I fell, I’d guessed that someone would come here in the future. Since all of you were able to pass through all the tribulations and arrive here, it proves that all of you aren’t ordinary figures.” Suddenly, the figure spoke with a heavy, decisive, and extremely proud tone. “However, if those that aren’t from my Ancestral Dragon Race intend to obtain the fortune I left behind, then they naturally have to obtain my acknowledgement!”
As soon as these words were spoken, it was as shocking as a bolt of thunder arising from the ground, and it allowed Chen Xi to finally understand that this figure was actually the Ancestral Dragon Daolord who’d perished all those years ago!
In other words, it was very likely that this figure was a Will Brand left behind by the Ancestral Dragon Daolord!
When they thought up to here, Chen Xi and the others were shocked once more. They were truly unable to imagined that after countless years had passed, they were actually still lucky enough to witness the true appearance of the Ancestral Dragon Daolord.
“How do we obtain your acknowledgement?” Dong Bowen spoke abruptly.
The hearts of Chen Xi and the others constricted, and they immediately didn’t dare allow their thoughts to run wild. They realized that Dong Bowen had already started to take action and seek this fortuitous encounter.
“By discussing the Dao,” said the Ancestral Dragon Daolord.
“What sort of discussion of the Dao would it be?” Dong Bowen continued.
“You intend to advance into the Daolord Realm, so it’ll naturally be a discussion of the path to become a Daolord.” The Ancestral Dragon Daolord’s voice was heavy and calm.
However, when these words entered into the ears of Chen Xi and the others, it caused them to be shocked in their hearts. This Ancestral Dragon Daolord who’d perished countless years ago actually seemed to have seen through Dong Bowen’s objectives!
“Alright, I’ll discuss the Dao with you!” Dong Bowen was silent for a moment before he suddenly strode forward, and he instantly arrived above the bronze coffin and sat cross-legged before the Ancestral Dragon Daolord’s Will Brand.
“I still have a string of Dragon Soul, a jug of Dragon Blood, a strand of Dragon Quintessence, and a Dragon Heart. If you’re able to obtain my acknowledgment, then this string of Dragon Soul will be yours.” The Ancestral Dragon Daolord spoke in a low voice.
He’d directly revealed the content of this supreme fortune!”
“The Ancestral Dragon’s Heart! I need just that!” Senior White’s breathing became rapid, and he was extremely excited.
Chen Xi didn’t know exactly what shocking and miraculous effects the Dragon Soul, Dragon Blood, Dragon Quintessence, and Dragon Heart possessed, but it was undoubtable that they were the supreme fortune that had drawn countless cultivators over during the countless years of the past.
“What if I want to obtain the Dragon Soul, Dragon Blood, Dragon Quintessence, and Dragon Heart?” asked Dong Bowen abruptly.
Just these words alone caused the hearts of Chen Xi and the others to sink, and their expressions turned unsightly. They’d finally confirmed that Dong Bowen had really decided to seize the entire supreme fortune that resided here.
It was even to the extent that they suspected that if the Will Brand of the Ancestral Dragon Daolord hadn’t appeared abruptly, then Dong Bowen would have probably made a move against them by now!
Why would he do that?
It was too simple! It was for the sake of obtaining the entire fortune for himself!
Little Bao was furious, and his eyes almost split apart from rage. “That damnable bastard! How wicked and greedy!”
Ye Yan revealed an expression of detest. “I never expected that he would actually be such a person.”
Chen Xi seemed to be very calm instead, and he said, “We may know a person’s appearance, but not a person’s heart. Perhaps he’d cooperated sincerely with us earlier, but his thoughts had unconsciously changed when facing the temptation of this supreme fortune.”
“If you’re able to satisfy me, then it’s not impossible to obtain everything.” Meanwhile, the Ancestral Dragon Daolord’s Will Brand spoke. “However, it isn’t so easy to accomplish that.”
“No matter what, I have to give it a try in the end!” At this moment, Dong Bowen seemed to be extremely calm and composed, and his eyes were filled with a firm expression. He seemed to be determined to obtain this fortuitous encounter.
