The violet divine radiance was like a screen that descended from the sky as it crushed down, and it crushed the stars and space in an area of 5,000km into powder. This scene was extremely terrifying.
This was the attack of a peak Ninth Star Imperial Monarch, so how could its might be ordinary?
Even if the five Divine Spirit Generals of the Sovereign Sect had utilized their entire strengths to dodge, they still suffered heavy injuries from this attack. All of them seemed as if they’d been crushed by divine mountains, and their bodies were blasted flying while they cried endlessly with pain and blood sprayed from both their mouths and noses.
This scene seemed especially shocking. They were five Imperial Monarchs, yet they were utterly unable to resist a single strike from Dong Bowen!
When Chen Xi and the others witnessed this scene, they couldn’t help but be shocked as well. This was the gap between a Ninth Star Imperial Monarch and a First Star Imperial Monarch. One was like a hawk in the sky while the other was an utterly weak ant, and the gap between them was too huge.
“Flee!” A furious howl that carried terror resounded. Suffering defeat from a single strike caused the five Divine Spirit Generals to be both horrified and furious, and they instantly realized that it was dangerous. So, how could they dare to stay here any longer? They fled instinctively.
Dong Bowen didn’t give chase when he saw this, and he looked at Chen Xi and the others instead before he said, “No one can obstruct all of you with me here.”
His voice was still calm and warm.
“Haha. We didn’t ask for your help.” Senior White sneered, and he refused to appreciate Dong Bowen’s actions.
Dong Bowen smiled with a composed expression, and he seemed to not mind at all.
“Let’s go.” Chen Xi glanced at Dong Bowen, and he sighed in his heart before he turned around and left with Senior White and the others.
“Actually, that fellow’s attitude isn’t bad. As a Ninth Star Imperial Monarch, he severed an arm in order to atone for his crimes, and he even sent us off like this. It’s truly very rare.” Senior White seemed to be lost in thought as he said, “Could it be that he’s worried your Eldest Senior Brother will look for trouble with him?”
“I don’t know and don’t want to know.” Chen Xi answered indifferently. He’d decided to keep his distance from Dong Bowen a long time ago. Even if Dong Bowen had lent a hand to help them deal with the danger that they faced, it was still unable to change his decision.
“Unfortunately, that fellow actually just watched as those five Divine Spirit Generals of the Sovereign Sect fled. This help he provided isn’t really good.” Senior White puckered his lips.
“Perhaps he’s afraid of the Sovereign Sect.” Ye Yan added.
Chen Xi frowned, and he was slightly unwilling to discuss things related to Dong Bowen any longer.
He was just about to interrupt this topic when Dong Bowen’s voice suddenly resounded from behind them….
“Fellow Daoists, the five Divine Spirit Generals of the Sovereign Sect have already retreated in defeat. Do all of you still refuse to realize your mistakes?” His cold and indifferent voice carried an oppressive force.
The hearts of Chen Xi and the others instantly shook because these words were clearly not spoken to them.
When he turned around and looked, Chen Xi noticed to his horror that a group of people had suddenly appeared behind them, and it was surprisingly Imperial Monarch Tai Jing who was in the lead!
When Chen Xi looked over closely, he noticed there were a total of eight of them. All of them possessed unprecedentedly supreme and mighty auras, and they possessed peerlessly impressive bearings. Shockingly, they were all Imperial Monarchs!
Obviously, all of them were the assistance that Imperial Monarch Tai Jing had found.
Chen Xi heaved a sigh of relief because Dong Bowen had suddenly arrived before Imperial Monarch Tai Jing’s group and was obstructing their path.
In other words, if it wasn’t for Dong Bowen, then Chen Xi’s group would have probably suffered a surprise attack from Imperial Monarch Tai Jing’s group!
Moreover, when they witnessed this scene, Chen Xi and the others finally understood why Dong Bowen didn’t pursue the five Divine Spirit Generals of the Sovereign Sect. It was because he’d noticed the existence of Imperial Monarch Tai Jing’s group!
“All of you leave quickly. Leave these fellows to me. Once you return to Oracle Mountain, please send my regards to the Grand Lord.” Dong Bowen’s voice came from afar.
Just these words alone caused Chen Xi’s emotions to become slightly complicated.
If Dong Bowen didn’t arouse malicious intent at that time, then perhaps… our relationship wouldn’t be so strained, right?
Now, even if I don’t want to have anything to do with him, I have no choice but to owe him a favor…. Chen Xi sighed in his heart, and then he suddenly said, “Thank you. I’ll pass your regards to my Eldest Senior Brother.”
As soon as he finished speaking, Chen Xi didn’t hesitate any longer, and he teleported at full speed while bringing Senior White and the others along with him.
A wave of the extremely terrifying sounds of battle and collision resounded from behind them. Numerous stars were blasted into pieces while divine radiance swept towards the surroundings, and even that area of the space was affected by the battle and fell into chaos.
It was a battle between Imperial Monarchs. It was world shocking, and it was capable of overturning the world and destroying everything!
It wasn’t just that, the Specter Galaxy was still in a state of incessant destruction, and it caused this extremely intense battle to become even more chaotic.
Chen Xi’s group had flown off far away, so they weren’t aware exactly which side gained the final victory in the battle.
However, they understood that no matter how terrible Dong Bowen’s attitude towards them was while they were at the Ancestral Dragon Daolord’s tomb, he’d compensated them by way of his actions now, and the price he paid was unimaginably huge.
They had to remember this favor.
Actually, if one thought carefully about the cause and effect of the entire incident, then it was merely caused by a single thing… greed!
It seemed to be absurd, yet both parties were actually clearly aware that if this ‘greed’ wasn’t restrained at that time, then the consequences it created would be unimaginable.
So, Chen Xi resolutely chose to keep his distance from Dong Bowen.
On the other hand, Dong Bowen had paid the price of an arm, and it was even to the extent that he’d used actions to compensate Chen Xi’s group earlier. All he sought was to repair the relationship between himself and Chen Xi’s group and to attain a flawless mental state.
A few hours later, Chen Xi’s group finally left Specter Galaxy, and their subsequent journey was completely calm.
This allowed them to feel much more relaxed.
For the sake of avoiding any mishaps from occurring in the next part of their journey, Chen Xi hid Senior White, Little Bao, and Ye Yan in the universe within his body, and then he changed his appearance and utilized the Daoseal Mark to conceal his aura.
After he did all of this, Chen Xi withdrew a treasured vessel, sat cross-legged on it, and started to travel through the boundless starry sky.
Before they left Arambha Temple, his Eldest Senior Brother, Wu Xuechan, had given Chen Xi a jade slip that mapped the path to Oracle Mountain, so that Chen Xi wouldn’t get lost while heading to the Imperial Region.
However, according to Chen Xi’s deduction, after they left Specter Galaxy, it would still take at least half a month for them to arrive at the Imperial Region.
Now, he just hoped that no further disturbances occurred in their subsequent journey.
In the boundless starry sky, the treasured vessel shot through space and flew forward incessantly.
Chen Xi was meditating with his eyes closed in the treasured vessel’s cabin.
After experiencing that unprecedentedly grand pursuit, Chen Xi’s cultivation had obtained an obvious increase, and he’d improved from the intermediate-stage of the Universe Enlightened Ancestral God Realm to the advanced-stage. Moreover, he was approaching the peak of the Universe Enlightened Ancestral God Realm.
All of this had occurred in a short period of a few months, and he could be said to have improved with amazing speed. Moreover, it could be described as being an astounding accomplishment.
After all, it was extremely difficult for gods to advance even a single step in their cultivation, and it wasn’t something that could be made up for with accumulation through time.
This was the profound effects of fortuitous encounters. Once they were obtained, it would be sufficient to allow a cultivator’s strength to undergo a tremendous change akin to rebirth!
Why would cultivators be willing to take extremely great risks to wander the world in search of illusory fortuitous encounters? This was exactly the reason.
For example, Senior White, Little Bao, and Ye Yan had respectively obtained the Dragon Heart, Dragon Blood, and Dragon Quintessence that the Ancestral Dragon Daolord had left behind. Once they completely refined and absorbed the fortune they’d respectively obtained, their cultivations would definitely undergo a shocking transformation. This was undoubtable.
On the other hand, at this moment, Chen Xi’s combat strength really couldn’t be compared to the past.
His qi refinement cultivation had already attained the advanced-stage of the Universe Enlightened Ancestral God Realm.
His cultivation in the Dao Heart had attained the second forging in the True Heart Sutra. His Heart Infant was like an immature youth, and it allowed him to be able to bring forth the entire might of the 2nd level of the Sword Emperor Realm!
Moreover, his comprehension of the Divine Dao had transformed from the initial-stage to the advanced-stage.
If the supreme potential of Chen Xi’s Imperial Sovereign Dao Root was included, then Chen Xi’s strength was sufficient to reign supreme in the Universe Enlightened Ancestral God Realm and crush most cultivators at the same realm!
Of course, if he fought desperately with the Godslaughter Burst technique, then Chen Xi even dared to go against ordinary Imperial Monarchs.
For example, Imperial Monarch Nandu from the Ye Clan was a First Star Imperial Monarch, but he was still annihilated by the joint forces of Chen Xi and Little Bao!
If the news of such a heaven defying and splendid accomplishment in battle was spread into the Ancient God Domain, then it was obvious what sort of stir it would cause.
In short, Chen Xi was bringing forth the might that belonged to an Imperial Sovereign Rank Universe Enlightened Ancestral God, and when he attained perfection in the Universe Enlightened Ancestral God Realm and completely released the potential of an Imperial Sovereign Rank Universe Enlightened Ancestral God, then he would absolutely be able to reign supreme over the entire Universe Enlightened Ancestral God Realm!
At that time, even the existences in the top 100 of the Universe Enlightened Chart would probably dim in comparison to him, and they would be unable to compare to Chen Xi.
This was the profound effect of obtaining the Imperial Sovereign Dao Root. An Imperial Sovereign was unique and reigned supreme over the world!
However, Chen Xi wouldn’t become conceited because of this. During this pursuit, his opponents were too formidable, and many were existences at the Imperial Monarch Realm. So, no matter how formidable he was in the Universe Enlightened Ancestral God Realm, it seemed to be insufficient when compared to Imperial Monarchs.
It was because of this that Chen Xi wasn’t able to feel self-satisfied at all. Actually, if any Universe Enlightened Ancestral God were to be pursued by numerous Imperial Monarchs, that Universe Enlightened Ancestral God would have the same mental state as Chen Xi.
The important matter at hand is to make the best use of my time and attained perfection in the Universe Enlightened Ancestral God Realm. So long as I attain that level of cultivation, then I’ll be able to search for the Forgotten Grounds of Chaos that the Goddess spoke of, establish a region, and begin preparations for charging into the Imperial Monarch Realm…. In the cabin, Chen Xi was meditating while silently planning in his heart.
In the blink of an eye, seven days had passed.
On this day, a trace of waves arose in Chen Xi’s heart, and then he suddenly opened his eyes.
Right at this moment, a voice suddenly resounded from outside the treasured vessel.
“Fellow Daoist, I’m sorry for disturbing you. I want to use your treasured vessel to avoid someone. Once the matter is done, I’ll give you a reward as compensation. Please do forgive me.” The voice carried a trace of anxiousness, and before Chen Xi could even reply, a figure had moved swiftly like a wisp of flowing light and arrived in the cabin.
Chen Xi couldn’t help but frown because of this, and a trace of seriousness couldn’t help but arise in his heart. Even though this treasured vessel was no precious treasure, it was densely covered in restrictions. However, this figure was actually able to enter it so casually, and this was truly slightly shocking.
However, when Chen Xi saw the appearance of the person, he couldn’t help but be slightly stunned. What’s he doing here?
