The Taixuan Codex!
A formidable and mysterious Natural Spirit Treasure that had always been in the possession of the Divine Institute’s Dean. In the boundless years of the past, there had been countless rumors about this treasure.
The most famous rumor was that the Taixuan Codex contained 13 Daoist scriptures. Every single scripture was like a world, and it possessed supreme might.
The 13 scriptures within the Taixuan Codex represented 13 worlds and 13 forms of supreme might!
The fact that others took most delight in talking about was that the final scripture in the Taixuan Codex supposedly recorded the secrets of the Grand Dao from the last era. If one was able to comprehend these secrets, then one might even be able to break through the barriers of an era and pass through the past, present, and future at will. It allowed once to truly attain a state of great freedom and boundlessness!
All of these rumors had undoubtedly covered the Taixuan Codex in a layer of mysteriousness.
But there was no doubt that this treasure was extremely formidable, and it surpassed ordinary Natural Spirit Treasures.
Unfortunately, in the boundless years of the past, the Taixuan Codex has always been in the hands of a supreme existence like the Dean of the Divine Institute, so others had never been able to lay eyes upon it.
At this moment, this mysterious and legendary precious treasure had actually appeared in Donghuang Yinxuan’s possession, so it instantly caused Leng Xinghun and the others to be extremely shocked.
It wasn’t just all of them within the Dao Cauldron World, and a mighty and endless uproar had arisen in the outside world as well. How could they have imagined that the Dean of the Divine Institute would actually hand this treasure over to Donghuang Yinxuan during the Dao Discussion.
For a time, the outside world seethed with excitement.
This was the charm of the Taixuan Codex. It was sufficient to shock the world as soon as it made an appearance.
“You Divine Institute really is willing to pay any price.” Wen Ting’s expression changed slightly, and she spoke coldly within Convergence Hall.
“Haha, you’re too kind.” Chi Song’zi laughed lightly. Actually, tempestuous waves had arisen in his heart because even he didn’t know that the Dean had actually given this treasure to Donghuang Yinxuan!
“Hmph!” Wen Ting grunted coldly and didn’t speak further.
As for Huai Kong’zi, Lei Fu, and the others, all of them had fallen into deep thought. They’d similarly never imagined that the Divine Institute would have made such sufficient preparations this time.
A strange, ancient, and obscure fluctuation ceaselessly effused out from the Taixuan Codex in Donghuang Yinxuan’s palm, and it was enshrouded with the glow of the Dao that illuminated the heavens and the earth in extremely holy light.
Even if he was within the formation, Chen Xi’s eyes couldn’t help but swiftly narrow when he witnessed this scene. Even though he hadn’t recognized the origins of this treasure, he’d sensed an unusual aura from it.
“The Taixuan Codex!” Gu Yan and Tu Meng recognized it with a single glance instead, and they spoke with surprise.
“Is it very formidable?” Chen Xi frowned.
Gu Yuan swiftly described the origins of this treasure, and he had a rare serious expression on his face. “I never expected that the Divine Institute would actually take this treasure with them. What extravagance!”
After he found out about all of this, Chen Xi couldn’t help but become vigilant in his heart. He knew that even if he detonated a Natural Spirit Treasure, it would probably be unable to do anything to his enemies.
Because Donghuang Yinxuan had obviously become utterly enraged at this moment and had withdrawn a precious treasure like the Taixuan Codex. So, if he played the same old trick, then it would obviously be an utter waste of those Natural Spirit Treasures.
Yes, Chen Xi had originally intended to persist until the end of the Dao Discussion even if he had to sacrifice all the Natural Spirit Treasures in his possession.
But when he witnessed this scene, he instantly knew that he had to change his strategy.
“Both of you stay within the formation. I’ll go experience the might of this treasure.” Chen Xi took a deep breath while a wisp of a firm expression flashed in his eyes. “Remember, both of you are not allowed to take a step out of this formation no matter what happens! If you disobey me, then don’t call me Martial Ancestral Uncle from today onward!”
As he spoke, he took a large stride forward and instantly vanished within the formation.
“Martial Ancestral Uncle is….” Gu Yan and Tu Meng glanced at each other, and both were extremely anxious. How could they have imagined that Chen Xi would actually decide to face so many opponents by himself?
If any mishaps occur, then the consequences would be truly unimaginable!
At this moment, both of them truly wished for nothing more than to charge out and fight by Chen Xi’s side. But both gave up dejectedly when they recalled Yang Ye’s order, and they simply suffered to the extreme in their hearts.
“Don’t be worried. Perhaps Martial Ancestral Uncle has his own way to deal with all of this.” Gu Yan spoke in a low voice.
Tu Meng cried. “Of course!”
Actually, both of them were clearly aware that it was merely a form of self-consolation. Yet now, they could only do this.
Unfortunately, the worries in their hearts didn’t decrease but increase instead.
“What does Chen Xi intend to do?”
“He wouldn’t be thinking of resisting Leng Xinghun, Donghuang Yinxuan, and the others by himself, right? Is this any different than courting death?”
“Could it be that he intends to sacrifice himself to protect Gu Yan and Tu Meng?”
“Looks like Donghuang Yinxuan’s actions of withdrawing the Taixuan Codex caused extraordinary pressure to descend upon him as well, and it caused him to have no choice but to step forward boldly at this moment.”
When they saw Chen Xi take the initiative to step out of the formation, all the cultivators in the outside world couldn’t help but be extremely surprised. They were unable to imagine exactly what had urged him to act in this way.
After all, leaving the formation meant that he would have to face Leng Xinghun, Donghuang Yinxuan, and all the disciples from both the Sovereign Sect and Divine Institute!
Under such circumstances, he was simply like a moth flying towards a flame. How could he possibly change the situation?
“What admirable courage!” Lei Fu clapped as he spoke, and it was filled with ridicule.
Wen Ting’s expression grew even gloomier.
Outside the formation.
When they saw Chen Xi make an appearance, Leng Xinghun, Donghuang Yinxuan, and the others were surprised, and then they were overjoyed.
That damnable bastard has been finally forced out!
After he came out, Chen Xi directly disregarded the others, and he withdrew the banisher as his gaze shot out like a bolt of lightning and swiftly locked onto Donghuang Yinxuan who stood in the distance.
Because at this moment, Donghuang Yinxuan who possessed the Taixuan Codex was clearly the most dangerous, and he gave Chen Xi the most pressure.
“Chen Xi, you’ve finally come out here!” At this moment, Donghuang Yinxuan actually started laughing. However, there was no happiness on his face at all, and it seemed murderous and icy cold to the extreme instead.
He raised his head to look at the sky while he muttered. “Two hours remain. It’s sufficient to eliminate you….”
“That may not necessarily be the case.” Chen Xi said indifferently, “Even if all of you attack me together, it’s still not likely that you would be able to accomplish that.”
The tone behind these words seemed to be calm, yet it felt extremely arrogant when it entered into the ears of Leng Xinghun and the others, and they couldn’t help but laugh coldly because of it.
“Everyone, give me 15 minutes of time to deal with this fellow myself!” Donghuang Yinxuan spoke indifferently.
Leng Xinghun and the others frowned. They didn’t feel that a one on one battle was the best method at such a time.
However, when they saw Donghuang Yinxuan’s resolute expression, all of them stopped persisting and tacitly approved of this request.
“15 minutes?” Chen Xi started smiling, extremely brilliantly even. Especially when he heard that Donghuang Yinxuan intended to fight him one on one, Chen Xi really didn’t know if he should say that Donghuang Yinxuan was arrogant and too confident.
“Perhaps even 15 minutes would be too much.” His voice hadn’t finished resounding through the air when a wisp of seemingly material and seething killing intent surged into appearance around Donghuang Yinxuan, and it shook the heavens and the earth and threw it into disorder.
The Taixuan Codex in his hand rumbled while emanating obscure and ancient rays of the Dao. It was like the earliest ancestors of the primeval times were chanting scriptures that could open the ears of the deaf and the eyes of the blind.
The atmosphere was tense and murderous.
At this instant, even the attention of the cultivators in the outside world had been drawn over by this scene, and they opened their eyes wide and were deeply afraid of missing even the slightest detail.
One was Donghuang Yinxuan, the Eldest Powerseal Disciple of the Divine Institute and a peerless figure who possessed the most extraordinary natural talent amongst the Donghuang Clan’s direct line descendants. He was born with the Dark Dao Battle Physique that was peerlessly rare, and he was considered to be the most outstanding disciple in the Divine Institute.
Merely these titles alone made it obvious how dazzling and extraordinary he was.
Yet now, he held the Taixuan Codex in hand, and his might was so powerful that it could simply stand supreme amongst all the Universe Enlightened Ancestral God Realm experts since the ancient times. He was peerless!
The other was Chen Xi, the junior brother of Oracle Mountain’s Grand Lord, Wu Xuechan. He risen to prominence a few tens of years ago, possessed an unfathomable cultivation, and had completed numerous world shocking deeds. Moreover, he’d proved his strength a long time ago through numerous battled throughout these three months that the Dao Discussion had been held for.
Yet now, a battle was about to unfold between these two, and it was bound to be an unprecedentedly peak battle. At this moment, would anyone dare to disregard this battle?
At this moment, the two of them were the center of attention of all. The atmosphere between them was murderous, and the battle would erupt at any moment!
Donghuang Yinxuan was the first to attack. He raised his fair and slender palm while the Taixuan Codex in his hand opened abruptly to reveal the first scripture within it.
In an instant, blazing divine radiance shot into the sky while the sounds of chanting surged through the heavens and the earth!
This area instantly transformed into powder. It transformed into nothingness. Only endlessly terrifying glows of the Dao surged incessantly.
Such a scene was simply no different than ‘the obliteration of the world’.
Chen Xi’s eyes swiftly narrowed while a cold glow surged within them. His vital energy was stimulated to the point of suddenly seething as it circulated at full speed.
It was a very dangerous aura!
It was the first time he’d encountered such a formidable enemy since he participated in the Dao Discussion, and Donghuang Yinxuan could be said to be a formidable enemy that he’d rarely ever encountered in his entire lifetime.
However, Chen Xi was utterly unafraid.
In these years of the past, he’d very rarely felt such pressure from someone at the same realm of cultivation. It wasn’t that he was haughty, but his opponents were truly too weak.
Yet now, being able to encounter an opponent like Donghuang Yinxuan caused his desire for battle in his heart that hadn’t fluctuated at all for a very long time to actually be aroused. It was like a volcano that had been sleeping for a long time, and it suddenly erupted at this moment!
“World Suppression — descend!” Donghuang Yinxuan shouted. After that, the glow of the Dao that covered the sky seemed as if it had heard an order. It suddenly transformed into a row of ancient, obscure, and twisted words. These words were densely like raindrops, filled with profundities, brilliant, and imposing!
Markings formed with the Dao were Dao Markings!
These Dao Markings appeared one by one and converged densely in midair to form a true scripture that crushed down at Chen Xi.
At this instant, the heavens, the earth, the landscape, time, light…. Everything seemed to be deterred, subdued, and had been completely suppressed to the point they didn’t even emanate a trace of fluctuation any longer.
It seemed like everything would be suppressed and crushed before this scripture, and it didn’t tolerate any existences that defied it, or else only death would be waiting for such an existence.
This was ‘World Suppression’.
It came from the first scripture in the Taixuan Codex, and it suppressed all things and crushed everything!
Obviously, as soon as Donghuang Yinxuan attacked, he’d utilized his strongest move with the intention of accomplishing his objective in one go and completely crushing Chen Xi!
