Chapter 1847 – One Against Five

Late at night, a wisp of palpitation suddenly arose in the heart of Chen Xi who was meditating.

Swoosh!

Chen Xi’s figure flashed instinctively and vanished on the spot.

Bang!

At practically the exact same moment, a wisp of black divine light appeared abruptly, and it slashed the rock that Chen Xi was seated on just moments before into two.

That wisp of black divine light was too swift and sudden, there was no sign of its arrival at all. Moreover, it didn’t make even a trace of sound from the beginning until the end.

However, its might was extraordinarily great. It didn’t just easily slash that rock into two, it even created a bottomless rift in the ground!

Chen Xi had made observations earlier, and he’d noticed that everything within the Dao Cauldron World was unlike the outside world. It was filled with peerless energy of the Grand Dao, and even an ordinary stone was extremely hard and comparable to a divine treasure.

Yet now, this strike was actually able to create such destruction. This obviously showed that if he hadn’t dodged in time, then he would definitely suffer a heavy injury!

“Who is it!?” Under the veil of the night sky, Chen Xi stood in the distant space while his gaze was like a bolt of lightning that swiftly swept the surroundings.

In an instant, five figures were captured within his extraordinary perception.

Their auras were restrained as if they’d fused with the night sky, and they were like devil gods that walked silently amidst the darkness.

If one didn’t sense carefully, then it would even be difficult to notice their existence.

Obviously, they possessed some sort of secret technique that concealed the aura, and that was why they were able to accomplish this.

The Sovereign Sect! Chen Xi’s eyes narrowed while a cold light flashed within them.

He’d discerned their origins. Because no matter how they restrained their auras, it was impossible to escape being locked onto by Chen Xi’s Daoseal Mark.

“Elder of the Sovereign Sect, Wen Yan. An existence at the perfection-stage of the Universe Enlightened Ancestral God Realm and ranked at the 26th position on the Universe Enlightened Chart.”

“Elder of the Sovereign Sect, Lu Zhanghen. An existence at the perfection-stage of the Universe Enlightened Ancestral God Realm and ranked at the 29th position on the Universe Enlightened Chart.”

“Elder of the Sovereign Sect, Zhan Ying….”“….”

Their identities instantly appeared within Chen Xi’s mind.

While they were on the way to Ten Direction City, Wen Ting had provided Chen Xi and the others with information about all the cultivators that were participating in the Dao Discussion.

This was done so that they could know their enemies as well as themselves and avoid encountering the danger of defeat in all battles.

Obviously, these pieces of information had provided Chen Xi with extremely accurate judgment at this moment.

Swoosh! Swoosh! Swoosh!

All of this took a long time to describe, yet it actually occurred in an instant. When Chen Xi sensed them, they’d already pounced over from different directions!

Swish!

A man in a dark green robe who was in the lead was the first to arrive. He utilized a violet curved blade that was shaped like a crescent, and it formed a myriad of violet colored blade lights that descended like a rain of light. It was like a dazzling meteor shower that was whistling through the sky as it enveloped down towards Chen Xi.

Under the veil of night, the violet blade light covered the heavens and the earth like raindrops that were boundlessly strong, and it caused space to seem like a torn rag and be thrown into complete disorder.

This strike was extremely terrifying!

It far exceeded the might possessed by ordinary Universe Enlightened Ancestral Gods. From the beginning until the end, he’d remained silent, and as soon as he attacked, it was a swift and powerful attack. Obviously, this man had aroused killing intent and intended to eliminate Chen Xi with a single strike!

Rumble! Rumble! Rumble! Rumble!

At practically the exact same time, the other four experts of the Sovereign Sect attacked ferociously from the four cardinal directions.

There was a supreme technique that formed a torrent of calamity.

There was a peerless divine artifact with world shocking might.

There was a violent and thick torrent of the energy of Fiendgods.

There was a mysterious and ruthless soul attack.

At the same time, they attacked from four different directions, and they cooperated with the person in the lead to completely lock down the surroundings and completely envelope Chen Xi beneath these terrifying and monstrous attacks.

Such a scene was simply like the descend of the end of the world. In an instant, the ink black veil of night was illuminated by brilliant divine radiance, and it was dazzling, resplendent, and brilliant as if it was daytime.

At this moment, not to mention ordinary Universe Enlightened Ancestral God Realm experts, even a peerless figure that possessed the spirit to go against a myriad of enemies would have no choice but to dodge when facing such a shocking scene.

However, Chen Xi didn’t dodge.

Before this battle had even erupted, many people outside the Dao Cauldron World had already noticed this scene, and they’d shot their gazes over.

They were clearly aware that this battle was unavoidable. Since the instant that Chen Xi suffered the surprise attacks, the hearts of many had risen to their throats as they felt worried for Chen Xi.

Because they who were in the outside world were able to clearly witness the development of the entire situation. So, when they witnessed five Universe Enlightened Ancestral God Realm experts from the Sovereign Sect that possessed peerless might had jointly besieged Chen Xi, all of them couldn’t avoid feeling shocked and nervous.

After all, how could any of the participants in the Dao Discussion possibly be ordinary figures?

Yet now, five Universe Enlightened Ancestral God Realm experts of the Sovereign Sect had attacked ferociously and launched a battle without saying a single word. So, no matter how confident in Chen Xi’s strength they were, they couldn’t avoid feeling indescribable nervous.

At this moment, when she saw the battle erupt and the five Universe Enlightened Ancestral God Realm experts of the Sovereign Sect reveal monstrous might, it caused Wen Ting’s expression to change slightly while her heart sank.

Even Wen Ting had reacted in such a way, let alone the others.

On the other hand, when the Sovereign Sect’s Lei Fu saw this, a wisp of a smile couldn’t help but suffuse the corners of his mouth, and it was an expression of confidence in having victory within his grasps.

However, when they saw Chen Xi’s reaction, everyone’s bodies stiffened while they felt slightly surprised.

Because when facing this terrifying attack that seemed like the end of the world was descending, Chen Xi… actually didn’t dodge and took the initiative to collide with it!

……

Clang!

The Banisher that was suffused with a shimmering green glow left its sheath, and it let out a clear howl that resounded through the heavens and the earth.

Amidst the sword howl, Chen Xi strode through space and moved to meet these attacks head-on.

At this moment, his clothes fluttered while his eyes that were deep like abysses were filled with an indifferent and murderous expression. Strands of blazing Sword Insight transformed into mysterious and obscure talismans that coiled around his body, and it caused him to reveal the supreme imposing aura of a monarch that had descended to the world.

Bang!

As he took a step forward, this expanse of the heavens and the earth collapsed into pieces while a myriad of strands of sword qi surged out from his body like the tide, and it threw Yin and Yang into disorder as it crushed the surroundings!

Everywhere it passed, one could clearly notice attack after attack being crushed, torn into pieces and transformed into powder. They were utterly unable to approach Chen Xi at all.

Such a scene could simply be described as being all powerful and like crushing through dried leaves!

Everyone in the outside world was shocked. They opened their eyes wide and almost didn’t dare believe what they were seeing. Because all of this had exceeded their expectations.

They were utterly unable to imagine that as soon as Chen Xi attacked, he would actually reveal such a heaven defying combat strength!

Rumble!

The battle erupted. Blazing divine radiance surged and drowned the heavens and the earth, causing others to be unable to watch the battle clearly. They could only see numerous figures moving about amidst the divine radiance and fighting throughout the world to the point the heavens and the earth split and collapsed while the sun and moon dimmed in comparison. They’d transformed the entire surroundings into their battlefield!

One part to the battle was five peerless Universe Enlightened Ancestral Gods from the Sovereign Sect, and the other party was a personal disciple of Oracle Mountain who’d just risen like a shooting star in the Ancient God Domain.

How could such a world shocking battle be seen at any other ordinary time?

Even though they were unable to see exactly what was happening in the battle, all the people in the outside world couldn’t avoid being bedazzled and shocked.

These were cultivators from the five extremes of the Imperial Region, and this was a battle between the disciples of the Sovereign Sect and Oracle Mountain!

No matter which side it was, both were formidable beyond imagination. After they witnessed this battle, the others were finally able to notice exactly how great the gap between ordinary Universe Enlightened Ancestral Gods and the disciples of the five extremes of the Imperial Region was.

“Extraordinary, he’s going head-on against five experts by himself. Even if this Chen Xi is eliminated in this battle, his defeat will still be an honor that’s capable of causing everyone in the world to exclaim with admiration.” Many people sighed with emotion.

“In my opinion, the combat strength Chen Xi revealed now is probably on par with Leng Xinghun, Kong Youran, Donghuang Yinxuan and the others.” Someone compared Chen Xi with the other peerless figures that had made a name for themselves a long time ago.

“I don’t want Chen Xi to be eliminated just like that. Joining forces and fighting him with superior numbers is slightly bullying. It would be satisfying if Chen Xi could fight one on one with Leng Xinghun and the others, and only then would we be able to discern the true expert amongst them.”

Many people were worried for Chen Xi as well, and they couldn’t bear to see him being defeated and eliminated.

On the other hand, the atmosphere in Convergence Hall was deathly silent.

Even though Wen Ting heaved a sigh of relief in her heart upon noticing that Chen Xi wasn’t crushed in one go, her expression was still clearly indifferent and icy cold to the extreme.

Because perhaps fairness couldn’t be applied to this battle, but Wen Ting was very clearly aware that the attack Chen Xi suffered was definitely a plot that the Sovereign Sect had been planning for a long time!

When a fair and impartial Dao Discussion was mixed with the aura of a plot, how could Wen Ting be able to feel happy?

“Hah. I never expected that this kid would really be as formidable as the rumors said and hasn’t brought shame to the reputation of Oracle Mountain. But it’s just a slight pity.” Suddenly, the red robed Grand Priest of the Sovereign Sect, Lei Fu, smiled lightly as he spoke while his voice carried a wisp of pity, and it was impossible to determine if he was speaking with ridicule or taking pleasure in Chen Xi’s misfortune.

“Indeed. His luck isn’t very good.” The Divine Institute’s Educator Elder, Chi Song’zi, added. “Nothing can be done when one is out of luck.”

The corners of Huai Kong’zi’s mouth twitched imperceptibly, but he didn’t restrain this sort of ‘provocative’ conversation in the end.

He kept his Martial Uncle Cai Ya’s instructions in mind. So long as the Dao Discussion could be carried out smoothly, then he wouldn’t interfere in anything.

Wen Ting’s beautiful brows knit together while she swiftly raised her head, and her gaze shot coldly towards Lei Fu and Chi Song’zi while she was about to say something.

Right at this moment, she was suddenly stunned and seemed have noticed something. A wisp of a smile couldn’t help but appear on the corners of her mouth as she spoke slowly. “Those that court death will never face a good outcome in the end.”

These words seemed slightly incomprehensible.

However, when everyone gazed once more at the Divine Screen of the Heavens in the sky outside the hall, they immediately understood what these words meant.

Because, at this moment, they clearly noticed to their shock that a figure was forcefully blasted flying like a rocket from the battlefield that was covered in dust and dirt.

That person let out a shrill cry while blood sprayed from both his mouth and nose, and his face seemed extremely hideous from having warped because of pain.

But if they distinguished it carefully, they were still able to discern that it was surprisingly a Universe Enlightened Ancestral God of the Sovereign Sect!

He seemed to have encountered some sort of terrifyingly heavy injury, and he couldn’t help but reveal an extremely terrified expression.

In the next moment, his entire body was carried by a strand of the energy of the heavens and the earth, and he was forcefully transported out of the Dao Cauldron World!
