He made concessions for me? Wang Zhong who seemed as if he’d gone mad was utterly stunned, and then he repeated the same thing over and over again. “This is impossible…. This is impossible….”
On the other hand, Chen Xi had left the Dao Engraved Battlefield already.
At this moment, Wang Zhong stood on the battlefield by himself while he stared blankly ahead, and he seemed so lonely, dejected, and especially pitiable.
When he witnessed all of this, Huai Kong’zi took a deep breath, forcefully restrained the shock in his heart, and then said in a deep voice. “This battle belongs to Chen Xi!”
His dignified voice swept through the heavens and the earth, causing the spectators in the surroundings to recover from their shock.
Uproars instantly arose in the surroundings, and they seethed with excitement.
“He won! Chen Xi really won! Inconceivable! It’s truly too inconceivable!”
“I never expected that Chen Xi would actually made a miraculous counterattack at the critical moment and defeat Wang Zhong in one go!”
“Alas! This dark horse, Wang Zhong, will be stopping here. But based on his display during the last few battles, it’s sufficient for him to become renowned in the world and known to the entire Ancient God Domain.”
“Amazing! Did all of you see it clearly? That sword Chen Xi withdrew at the end possessed extremely formidable might. It’s obviously an extraordinary Natural Spirit Treasure!”
“Yeah! Who would have imagined that Chen Xi actually kept it hidden so well, and he wasn’t willing to utilize it until the final moment.”
Exclaims of surprise could he be heard incessantly, and a mighty uproar had arisen in the entire Ten Direction City.
Wen Ting let out a long sigh of relief and relaxed her tightly clenched hands. Moreover, a wisp of a smile had suffused the corners of her mouth, and she herself was in high spirits.
Even though she hadn’t spoken a single word, Lei Fu and Chi Song’zi’s expressions had become rather gloomy at this moment. How could they have imagined that Chen Xi who originally seemed to be losing for sure would actually turn the desperate situation around and launch an extremely gorgeous counterattack?
That Little Bastard! He really is tenacious! Both of them cursed in their hearts.
“If Wang Zhong really is a descendant of that place, then Chen Xi’s ability to defeat him is… very unusual….” Jia Nan was stunned. He stared at Wang Zhong who stood on the battlefield and recalled that final attack Chen Xi had executed earlier, and he actually feel into deep contemplation.
His display was completely different form the other cultivators, and it seemed rather unusual. Unfortunately, the gazes of most people were converged onto Chen Xi, and no one noticed Jia Nan’s unusual reaction.
“He won!” Shentu Yanran suddenly stood up and was unable to restrain the happiness in her heart, causing her peerlessly gorgeous face to seem even more delicate and charming.
“He won!” Le Wuhen, Yuqiu Jin, Zhuanyu Shui, and the others repeated the same words, and they were unable to calm down for a long time.
The combat strength Chen Xi revealed was too formidable, and it was like Chen Xi was a completely different person when compared to the strength Chen Xi possessed at that time in the Desolate Manku Ruins. This caused all of them who were companions of his in the past to feel like he was beyond their reach.
“He won?” At practically the exact same moment, within the Ancient Springtime Realm that was isolated from the outside world, Leng Xinghun, Donghuang Yinxuan, and Kong Youran had simultaneously awoken from their meditation and opened their eyes.
After they won their respective battles, they’d been successively teleported back into the Ancient Springtime Realm, and they were unable to witness everything that was occurring in the outside world.
So, they were utterly not aware of the specific circumstances in the battle between Chen Xi and Wang Zhong.
However, merely based on the clamorous noise that shook the outside world, it was sufficient for them to determine that Chen Xi’s win was very beautiful!
“I never expected that even Wang Zhong was actually not a match for him….” Leng Xinghun frowned. His evaluation of Wang Zhong was extremely high, and he’d even taken Wang Zhong to be an opponent that he had to handle carefully. But he’d never imagined that this fellow who possessed unfathomable strength would actually be defeated at Chen Xi’s hands.
“Looks like I must take him to be a formidable enemy if I encounter Chen Xi in the following battles.” At practically the exact same moment, Donghuang Yinxuan’s brows raised while his violet pupils emanated a wisp of shocking light.
“I knew that fellow, Chen Xi, had concealed even more strength than Wang Zhong.” Kong Youran suddenly stood up and stretched herself lazily, and then her moist red lips curved into a smile.
In next to no time, a strand of spatial fluctuation swept throughout the Ancient Springtime Realm, and then three mysterious doors appeared before the three of them.
They didn’t hesitate to stride through the door simultaneously, and then they swiftly vanished.
They were clearly aware that the battles of the 4th level would begin soon!
Clamorous noise resounded throughout the surroundings. However, Chen Xi seemed to have not noticed at all. He just walked over to Tu Meng and Gu Yan’s side, and then he immediately heaved a sigh of relief after taking a short glance at Gu Yan who was meditating there.
Fortunately, even though Gu Yan’s injuries were heavy, it hadn’t harmed his foundation.
“Martial Ancestral Uncle, quickly rest yourself so as to prevent your strength from being affected during the next round of the battles.” Tu Meng spoke with a concerned tone.
Chen Xi smiled and said, “Alright.”
He hadn’t suffered any injury. The battle between him and Wang Zhong had merely been carried out for the time for an incense stick to burn, and it had merely exhausted his divine energy while the consumption of his Heart Energy wasn’t much.
However, if he participated in the following battle while in such a state, then it would definitely affect his performance. After, his next opponent might be Leng Xinghun, Donghuang Yinxuan, or Kong Youran.
When fighting such figures, even the slightest weakness might cause one to suffer defeat, so Chen Xi didn’t dare be careless at all.
He sat down cross-legged and started to meditate.
Almost six hours were provided for them to recuperate before the next round of battles commenced, and it was sufficient for Chen Xi to recover to his peak state.
During this period of time, Huai Kong’zi had asked if Chen Xi wanted to enter the Ancient Springtime Realm to recover because in that way, he would definitely recover much more quickly.
However, Chen Xi had refused. It wasn’t that he was acting carelessly and arrogantly, and it was instead because he felt it wasn’t necessary.
“Martial Ancestral Uncle, I watched all the battles in the 3rd level. I was roughly able to determine that based on the trump card that you revealed earlier, it’s sufficient for you to go against any one of those three.” While Chen Xi recovered, Tu Meng analyzed the situation at his side.
“However, you can’t be careless. Those three fellows aren’t ordinary figures at all. They might still have some trump cards up their sleeves.” Chen Xi listened silently while he thought in his heart. If it’s a competition of trump cards, then I’m afraid of no one.
“Eldest Senior Brother, you must be careful of that kid, Chen Xi. He possesses an even more powerful sword, and it’s an extraordinary Natural Spirit Treasure….”
“Yes, Chen Xi relied on the might of dual swords to defeat Wang Zhong.”
“Senior Sister Kong, Chen Xi’s combat strength is extremely shocking, and he really concealed his strength well. If you encounter him, then you absolutely can’t be careless.”
At practically the exact same moment, Leng Xinghun, Donghuang Yinxuan, and Kong Youran were listening to the analysis of their fellow brothers and sisters.
Actually, it wasn’t just them. After they recovered from the shock caused by Chen Xi’s counterattack, all the cultivators within Ten Direction City were analyzing the combat strengths of Leng Xinghun, Donghuang Yinxuan, Kong Youran, and Chen Xi.
The spectators in the outside world had clearly witnessed all the battles they’d participated in, but it seemed extremely difficult to actually choose someone that was the most formidable from amongst them.
Or perhaps, all of those cultivators had different judgments in their hearts, and it was very difficult to obtain a uniform opinion of the person who was the strongest.
So, there was a huge amount of argument as well.
“No matter what, Leng Xinghun won every single battle in a direct manner, and this wasn’t something that the others could accomplish.” This was the opinion of those cultivators that supported Leng Xinghun.
“Hmph! How could combat strength be determined in that way? I think that Donghuang Yinxuan is the strongest. His style in combat is very steady, and he pushes down step by step towards his opponent, and the more one acts in this way, the more terrifying one is.” This was the opinion of Donghuang Yinxuan’s supporters.
“All of you’ve seen Kong Youran’s style in battle. She’s absolutely domineering and doesn’t give her opponents any chance to catch their breaths. Anyone who becomes her opponent would absolutely be unable to gain any advantage in a battle with her. This was the opinion of those that supported Kong Youran.
On the other hand, the cultivators that supported Chen Xi usually described Chen Xi with a single word — Unfathomable!
In short, every single cultivator was filled with anticipation towards the battles of the top four that were about to begin, and they discussed excitedly, causing the surroundings to be extremely clamorous.
But in next to no time, all of these voices actually vanished simultaneously. All of them seemed to have sensed something, and they looked towards the sky in unison.
Moreover, all their faces revealed a wisp of surprise and bewilderment.
At this moment, the hearts of Chen Xi, Leng Xinghun, Donghuang Yinxuan, Kong Youran, Huai Kong’zi, Wen Ting, Lei Fu, Chi Song’zi, and all the other participants and Imperial Monarchs shook before they swiftly looked towards the same direction.
The atmosphere was indescribably deathly silent at this moment, and only the sound of the wind whistled through the surroundings.
“Luckily, luckily, I was able to arrive before the Dao Discussion came to an end.” Suddenly, a warm voice resounded, and then a mighty and dignified figure appeared out of thin air.
He had snow white hair, a warm appearance, eyes that were deep and boundless like the starry sky, and he emanated an ancient and calm aura.
“Why rush over anxiously? Did you come to give your life away?” At practically the exact same moment, a hunched and emaciated old man whose face was densely covered with wrinkles appeared soundlessly at the other side of the sky. As soon as he appeared, his muddy eyes shot towards the man with snow white hair that had made an appearance just now.
The man with snow white hair merely grinned and didn’t say anything.
“Looks like everyone is here.” A voice that was charming and pleasing to the ear resounded. At another side of the sky, an extremely gorgeous Snow Crane carried a woman in plain clothes as it fluttered over.
At the same time, a middle aged man in Daoist’s robes appeared soundlessly at another side, and he had a conservative, firm, and boundlessly dignified expression.
In the blink of an eye, four figures had appeared at four different corners of the sky!
The aura of every single figure didn’t seem very formidable. However, when they appeared here, a wisp of astonishment couldn’t help but surge from the hearts of every single cultivator that was here, and their pupils dilated while they didn’t dare believe their eyes.
Even the hearts of the Imperial Monarchs shook simultaneously while shock appeared on their faces, and they became slightly reserved and respectful.
The atmosphere had become deathly silent. Only those four figures stood upright in midair like four supreme overlords that resided in the four cardinal directions.
“Hahaha! I apologize for being unable to welcome Fellow Daoists in advance.” Right at this moment, an aged and heroic voice resounded in the sky above Convergence Hall. Accompanying this voice was a grey clothed old man with greying hair that appeared out of thin air.
