Chapter 1869 – The Final Moment

Before this chaotic battle had erupted, the attention of practically all the cultivators had been drawn by the battle between Chen Xi and Donghuang Yinxuan.

So, when they saw Ye Chen, Yu Jiuhui, and the others suddenly rush over and eliminate that disciple of the Divine Institute, most of the cultivators finally realized what had happened and entered into an uproar.

Some were regretful as they felt that this had interrupted the peak battle between Chen Xi and Donghuang Yinxuan, and it was truly a pity.

Some were shocked and were unable to figure out why the Dao Institute would act along with Nuwa’s Dao Palace and launch a surprise attack against the Sovereign Sect and Divine Institute.

Some felt as if a heavy burden had been lifted from their shoulders. They’d clearly determined that such a situation had caused the Sovereign Sect and Divine Institute to utterly lose the best opportunity to deal with Chen Xi.

After all, less than two hours remained since the Dao Discussion came to an end, yet such a chaotic scene had occurred. So, the advantage possessed by the Sovereign Sect and Divine Institute had been completely undone, and they at least had to deal with Nuwa’s Dao Palace and the Dao Institute first before they could deal with Chen Xi’s group.

In short, the sudden eruption of this chaotic battle in the Dao Cauldron World had caused the situation to undergo a complete change.

All of this were incidents that all the cultivators in the outside were unable to foresee.

Chen Xi sized everything up with narrowed eyes, and he quickly determined the situation.

Swoosh!

Without any hesitation, his figure flashed and vanished on the spot. He charged into the group from Nuwa’s Dao Palace, and he helped them deal with those disciples from the Divine Institute.

The group from Nuwa’s Dao Palace that was led by Kong Youran and Shi Yu had already suppressed the disciples of the Divine Institute to the point of being on the verge of retreating in defeat. However, once Donghuang Yinxuan gave up on his battle with Chen Xi and came over to assist them, the situation had been instantly turned around, and they matched the group from Nuwa’s Dao Palace in strength.

However, when Chen Xi joined the battle, it instantly brought extraordinary pressure to those disciples of the Divine Institute.

On the other hand, the disciples of the Dao Institute led by Yea Chen and Yu Jiuhui were in an extremely intense with Leng Xinghun’s group from the Sovereign Sect.

Comparatively speaking, the Divine Institute was clearly in a disadvantaged position, and such a change in the situation caused all the cultivators in the outside world to be unable to avoid feelings of slight astonishment while their heads felt slightly muddled.

The reason was that the battle that had erupted today were truly too inconceivable.

In the morning, Tu Meng had been encircled by Leng Xinghun, Donghuang Yinxuan, and the others, and then Chen Xi lent a hand and rescued Tu Meng.

After that, Chen Xi set up a formation, resisted Leng Xinghun and Donghuang Yinxuan’s groups while the groups from the Dao Institute and Nuwa’s Dao Palace fought.

Later on, Chen Xi left the formation by himself and took the initiative to meet Donghuang Yinxuan in battle, and then this chaotic battle erupted….

All of these battles were dangerous to the extreme and inconceivable to the extreme. They were filled with unpredictable and unexpected events.

For example, no one had imagined that even under a situation where he was carrying the heavily injured Gu Yan, Chen Xi had still been able to rescue Tu Meng who had been encircled.

Similarly, no one had imagined that Chen Xi would have been able to persist for numerous hours and prevent Leng Xinghun and Donghuang Yinxuan’s groups from succeeding while relying solely upon a divine formation.

A further example was that the groups from the Dao Institute and Nuwa’s Dao Palace were in conflict just a little while ago. But now, they’d actually tacitly joint forces to attack the Sovereign Sect and Divine Institute, and they’d resolved the danger that Chen Xi faced.

All of this was filled with variables. Not to mention those cultivators in the outside world, even Chen Xi and all the others who were still in battle now had probably never imagined that such an unexpected event would actually occur at the final moments before the Dao Discussion came to an end.

It was simply filled with unpredictable changes!

In short, the intense and chaotic battle that was being carried out now had imperceptibly drawn the attention of all the cultivators in the outside world.

Everyone was very clearly aware that the moment this chaotic battle came to an end might also be the moment that this round of the Dao Discussion came to an end, or vice versa.

Ten minutes later, a disciple of the Divine Institute was eliminated by Chen Xi’s attacks.

The reason he was able to accomplish this was that Kong Youran, Shi Yu, and the others had helped him resist most of the attacks from Donghuang Yinxuan and the other disciples from the Divine Institute.

Bang!

Convergence Hall.

When he witnessed this scene, Chi Song’zi whose expression had turned extremely gloomy a long time ago was unable to endure the rage in his heart any longer, and he slapped the table before him into pieces, causing bits of wood to spray towards the surroundings.

He’d actually lost his composure to such an extent in public, and it clearly showed how aggrieved and infuriated he was in his heart.

The Sovereign Sect’s Lei Fu had a gloomy expression as well, and he remained silent.

Actually, it was very understandable. When their Sovereign Sect and Divine Institute had joined forces to deal with Chen Xi before this chaotic battle had erupted, they’d were in a completely advantageous position. But it just so happened that this chaotic battle had suddenly erupted and thrown everything into disorder when it wouldn’t be long before they were able to eliminate Chen Xi’s group of three, causing them to utterly lose the advantage they had.

Now, even a disciple of the Divine Institute had been eliminated, so how could Chi Song’zi accept this?

“The matters of the world really are unpredictable and ever-changing.” Wen Ting sighed with emotion, and the faces of Chi Song’zi and Lei Fu turned even gloomier when they heard this.

After the time for an incense stick to burn, one of the disciples of the Dao Institute was unexpectedly caught off guard, and he was eliminated by Leng Xinghun.

As soon as this scene occurred, it immediately destroyed the equally matched situation they were in, and it caused the Dao Institute to fall into a disadvantaged position.

Chen Xi acutely noticed this. He pondered deeply for a brief moment before his figure flashed, and he actually left the group from Nuwa’s Dao Palace to attack Leng Xinghun’s group.

No matter what, if Yea Chen and Yu Jiuhui hadn’t lent a hand on that day, then Gu Yan would have probably been eliminated.

So, under such circumstances, Chen Xi would naturally not turn a blind eye to the situation Yea Chen’s group was in.

Chen Xi’s unusual actions didn’t just cause the members of Nuwa’s Dao Palace to be stunned, even the disciples of the Dao Institute, Sovereign Sect, and Divine Institute couldn’t help but be surprised.

In next to no time, Yea Chen and Yu Jiuhui came to an understanding that Chen Xi was repaying their kindness from before. However, the expressions of Li Lufeng and the others were slightly colorful when they saw this.

During these three months of the Dao Discussion, they’d entered into conflict with Chen Xi on more than one occasion. Now, when they saw such an ‘enemy’ had come to help them, the surprise and disbelief they felt was obvious.

On the other hand, Chen Xi’s actions didn’t just simply cause the disciples of the Sovereign Sect and Divine Institute to feel infuriated, it was even like a signal!

It caused them to instantly suspect whether the Dao Institute had formed an alliance in secret with Nuwa’s Dao Palace and Oracle Mountain.

Otherwise, why would the Dao Institute arrive here with Nuwa’s Dao Palace and interrupt their plans to deal with Chen Xi?

Now, Chen Xi had actually taken the initiative to assist the Dao Institute, so how could others not doubt the relationship between these three powers?

“What a scheme! Good! Very good!” Lei Fu couldn’t restrain himself any longer, and he started laughing from extreme rage while he looked at Huai Kong’zi with an icy cold gaze.

Obviously, he’d started to doubt the exact role that the Dao Institute was playing during this Dao Discussion.

Huai Kong’zi sighed in his heart. After all, even he himself was slightly astounded and was unable to imagine that all of this would occur.

“The Dao Discussion is about to come to an end. At such a moment, even the disciples of my Dao Institute hope to seize even more Ancient Dao Engraved Cauldrons. In my opinion, there’s nothing wrong with all of this.” Huai Kong’zi took a deep breath and spoke in a low voice. “Could it be that only the disciples of your powers are allowed to seize the cauldrons from the disciples of my Dao Institute, yet the disciples of my Dao Institute can’t counterattack? That’s unreasonable.”

Lei Fu spoke coldly. “Fellow Daoist Huai Kong’zi, you ought to be clearly aware that I’m not talking about that!”

Huai Kong’zi’s eyes narrowed, yet he didn’t say anything in the end.

He couldn’t be bothered to provide an explanation because all the cultivators in Ten Direction City were able to discern right and wrong. So, the fairness of the Dao Discussion would naturally receive a fair public opinion.

“I never expected that your Young Martial Uncle’s methods are so superb. Perhaps it was unintended, but his actions have imperceptibly dragged the disciples of the Dao Institute to the opposite side of the Sovereign Sect and Divine Institute.” Yu Zhen spoke via voice transmission, and she puckered her lips while chuckling. Moreover, her eyes were filled with admiration.

“I believe that Young Martial Uncle didn’t think so much about it. As it’s said, a favor should be returned with a favor. Gu Yan had been rescued by those disciples of the Divine Institute, so Young Martial Uncle would naturally not forget this kindness.” Wen Ting spoke flatly. Actually, she was clearly aware that Chen Xi’s actions could be seen as killing two birds with one stone, so she didn’t repudiate Yu Zhen’s opinion.

The cultivators in the outside world discussed animatedly while the chaotic battle was still going on in the Dao Cauldron World.

With Chen Xi’s assistance, the battle between the disciples of the Sovereign Sect and Dao Institute had become equally matched once again, and it was even to the extent that the Dao Institute occupied a trace of an advantage.

But it was impossible to eliminate a disciple of the Sovereign Sect in a short period of time.

On the other side, the battle between Nuwa’s Dao Palace and the Divine Institute had finally into an equally matched situation as well. No one was able to do anything to the other.

As time gradually passed by without them noticing, and under the anxious gazes of all the cultivators in the outside world, merely less than 45 minutes remained before the first round of the Dao Discussion came to an end!

But up until now, even though the battle was extremely intense, not a single disciple had been eliminated, causing it to seem extremely inconceivable.

But if one analyzed the battle carefully, all of this would be within reason.

For example, the Sovereign Sect had a total of six disciples, the Divine Institute had five, the Dao Institute had eight, Nuwa’s Dao Palace had seven, and Oracle Mountain had three.

However, Oracle Mountain’s Gu Yan and Tu Meng hadn’t participated in the battle.

On the other hand, even though the Dao Institute had numerous disciples, it was clear that besides Yea Chen, Yu Jiuhui, and Li Lufeng, the combat strengths of all the remaining disciples was comparatively inferior.

On the other hand, while the disciples of the Sovereign Sect and Divine Institute seemed fewer, all of them that were able to persist until now were extremely formidable existences, so they didn’t reveal any inferiority in the battle.

Nuwa’s Dao Palace was probably the power with the most balanced combat strengths, and only Kong Youran and Shi Yu seemed to be outstanding.

So, the disciples of the Dao Institute were merely able to gain a trace of an advantage in this chaotic battle upon obtaining Chen Xi’s assistance, yet it was extremely difficult for them to eliminate their opponents.

The battle between the disciples of Nuwa’s Dao Palace and the Divine Institute was roughly similar.

Perhaps it was precisely because he’d noticed that such a situation was impossible to overturn in a short period of time, Leng Xinghun suddenly shouted loudly during the last 15 minutes before the Dao Discussion came to an end. “Everyone, there’s no point in continuing this battle. Why don’t all of us stop?”
