Chapter 1913 – Deception

Leng Xinghun’s voice carried pride and confidence.

Obviously, he hadn’t just seen through that Chen Xi was putting on an act, he’d even turned Chen Xi’s trick against him and put on a great show!

Otherwise, even with his ability, he would be absolutely unable to dodge that surprise attack with such ease.

Chen Xi smiled indifferently towards this. “You would be an idiot if you were unable to see through that.”

Just these words caused Leng Xinghun’s eyes to narrow, and then he said coldly, “It has already come to this, so why continue trying to be mystifying!”

As he spoke, he waved his hand to indicate that the other five disciples of the Sovereign Sect such prepare themselves, and he seemed as if he wanted to fight Chen Xi until the end.

At this moment, those disciples of the Sovereign Sect had finally recovered from their shock. So, it turns out that all of this was just a show!

They couldn’t help but feel heartfelt admiration towards Leng Xinghun because such methods were rather sky, tactful, and skillful.

Swoosh! Swoosh! Swoosh!

They didn’t hesitate to act according to Leng Xinghun’s signal, and they flashed forward and formed a circle with the intention of completely sealing off Chen Xi’s paths of retreat.

Hmm? Suddenly, Leng Xinghun seemed to have noticed something, and he couldn’t help but glance towards the side. Yet he noticed that only three people had obeyed his instruction and charged forward while two other companions of his were still standing on the spot.

“Wu Ying, Yun Kun! Quickly get over here!” Leng Xinghun frowned as he berated. It’s already a time like this, yet these two fellows are failing to act as the group requires. This is simply unforgiveable!

It wasn’t just Leng Xinghun who’d noticed this, the other three disciples had noticed it as well, and they couldn’t help but frown.

“I’m afraid they won’t listen to your instructions.” At this moment, Chen Xi suddenly smiled as he said, “Since you were able to guess that I was hiding in the shadows, how could I not be aware that launching a surprise attack against you would be in vain?”

These words caused the expressions of Leng Xinghun and the others to change slightly. We were tricked again?

They still didn’t believe it.

Pu! Pu!

But right at this moment, two bloody red marks suddenly appeared on the necks of both those disciples of the Sovereign Sect who Leng Xinghun called Wu Ying and Yun Kun. After that, the blood red mark split open before two fountains of blood sprayed from within and tainted the sky!

Surprisingly, their throats had been slit a long time ago. However, the speed of the blade was too swift, so the injuries on their throats was finally unable to endure the pressure of their blood and suddenly broke up at this moment!

After that, two bloody heads fell off their necks, and then their bodies crashed towards the ground.

These bloody scenes seemed extremely calm and silent. However, it was especially bloody, horrifying, and it created an extremely strong visual impact.

“Dammit!”

“How could this have happened?”

“Junior Brothers!!!”

The pupils of the other disciples constricted while they cried out involuntarily, and their expressions changed indeterminately while they still didn’t dare believe their eyes.

Who could have imagined that two companions that were by their sides would just suddenly die?

This was too inconceivable! It was too terrifying!

When they thought about how they were right beside those two companions of theirs just moments ago but they hadn’t noticed the deaths of their companions at all, those three disciples from the Sovereign Sect felt cold as if they’d fallen into an icy pit.

At this moment, Leng Xinghun finally understood what Chen Xi meant. Chen Xi hadn’t intended to attack him at all, and Chen Xi’s true targets were Wu Ying and Yun Kun!

On the other hand, the reason Chen Xi had attacked him was entirely for the sake of misleading them.

However, Leng Xinghun still couldn’t figure out exactly how Chen Xi had accomplished this!

All of this took a long time to describe, yet it actually occurred in an instant.

Swoosh!

While they still hadn’t recovered from their shock, Chen Xi had attacked ferociously. The Talisman Armament flashed through the air as its edge shot straight towards Leng Xinghun.

The Profound Heart Sword Technique — Dismemberment Style!

Dang!

At practically the exact same moment, the sound of a drum resounded like world shocking rumbling, and a terrifying soundwave swept out.

Accompanying this sound of the drum was a magnificent strand of sword qi. It flashed down explosively from the starry sky in the distance, and it enveloped those three disciples of the Sovereign Sect.

In an instant, Chen Xi, A’Liang, and Gu Yan had attacked successively with tacit understanding, and as soon as they’d attacked, they’d executed their strongest and most lethal moves!

“Retreat! Quickly!” Leng Xinghun shouted loudly while he waved the Primordial Mirror in his hand. It blasted Chen Xi’s sword qi into dispersal, and then he flicked his sleeve to grab the corpses of those two fallen companions of his before his figure flashed. He actually fled towards the distance!

At this moment, Leng Xinghun was clearly aware that he’d fallen for Chen Xi’s trap, and the death of two of his companions had caused the advantage they have to completely vanish.

Under such circumstances, he had no choice to flee now no matter how reluctant he was.

Rumble!

Amidst a collision of divine light, those three other disciples had no intention to continue fighting, and they fled at practically the exact same moment that Leng Xinghun had.

“Don’t even think about fleeing!” Gu Yan grunted coldly. How could he watch as this opportunity slipped by? He immediately flashed with the intention of pursuing them.

However, he was stopped by Chen Xi who said, “There’s no need to pursue them, so as to avoid forcing them to take desperate measures.”

Gu Yan frowned, thought for a moment, and then acknowledged Chen Xi’s decision as well. Indeed, if they wanted to annihilate Leng Xinghun’s group now, then they had to pay a certain price as well.

“Martial Ancestral Uncle, what if they come back?” Gu Yan pondered deeply before he spoke.

Meanwhile, there was no trace of Leng Xinghun’s group anymore.

“That couldn’t be any better. But in my opinion, they would definitely not dare to take that risk. After all, two of their companions have perished.” Chen Xi spoke calmly. In the depths of his heart, he wished for nothing more than to annihilate Leng Xinghun’s group, but his reason told him that he couldn’t do that.

Firstly, it was because he wasn’t 100% certain in his ability to accomplish it. Secondly, it was because a supreme fortune was right within his reach, and it was clearly disadvantageous to fight desperately against his enemies at a time like this.

In Chen Xi’s opinion, so long as they were still in the Forgotten Grounds of Chaos, then he would have an ample amount of opportunity to obliterate Leng Xinghun’s groups, and there was no need to be impatient.

“A total of six members from the Sovereign Sect entered the Forgotten Grounds of Chaos this time. Now that they’ve lost two, it’s absolutely a heavy blow to them.” Gu Yan took a deep breath and smiled as he said, “This can be considered as helping Junior Brother Tu Meng vent.”

When he spoke up to here, he suddenly thought of something and asked Chen Xi. “Martial Ancestral Uncle, how did you kill those two people just now?”

Chen Xi thought for a moment, and then he didn’t conceal it and said, “I utilized a technique called the Flowing Light Style. It’s extremely difficult to take precautions against when utilized in surprise attacks. However, the opportunity I had was insufficient, or it wouldn’t have only been those two who perished.”

“So, that’s what happened.” Gu Yan nodded while he felt even more admiration towards Chen Xi’s ability in the Sword Dao.

Actually, when he thought about it, the string of events that occurred earlier weren’t intense, and it didn’t cause any world shocking scenes to arise. However, it could be described as being filled with deception and constantly changing.

When they noticed Leng Xinghun’s group was approaching, Chen Xi’s group had put on a show.

When they noticed Chen Xi’s group was putting on a show, Leng Xinghun’s group had tried to turn this trick around on Chen Xi and had put on a great show.

Yet all of this was seen through by Chen Xi, so he turned their tricks against them and annihilated two of their members in the end.

From the beginning until the end, both sides were scheming against each other, and it didn’t just test their combat strengths, it was also a test of their ability, intelligence, skill in scheming, and their ability to adapt to the situation.

If it was a mere battle, then perhaps it would be very difficult for Chen Xi to kill two of their companions in an instant, and the outcome was difficult to determine.

After all, those two fellows weren’t ordinary figures. They were top-rate peak existences that had been selected after experiencing the Dao Discussion. Every single one of them was a peerless genius that possessed the strength to look down upon most of their peers in the same realm of cultivation.

The loss of every single figure like this was capable of causing a mighty uproar in the cultivation world, and it was also a heavy blow even to a supreme sect like the Sovereign Sect which was part of the five extremes of the Imperial Region.

Yet now, two disciples of the Sovereign Sect had perished in an instant. If news of this were to spread to the outside world, no one knew what type of world shocking and mighty uproar it would cause.

After that, Chen Xi didn’t hesitate to summon Tu Meng, and he told Tu Meng everything about the Region Quintessence. Tu Meng intended to refuse, but he failed to dissuade Chen Xi and stopped refusing.

Swish!

Chen Xi immediately utilized the Daoseal Mark to forcefully blast open a rift in the tribulation energy.

Tu Meng seized this opportunity to charge in. Everything was completed in an extremely smooth manner, and no unexpected event had occurred.

This allowed Chen Xi to heave a sigh of relief.

“Once this fellow emerges, he’ll become an Imperial Monarch, and he’ll even be a Region Lord that possesses the energy of a region.” Gu Yan sighed with emotion. There was no envy in his voice, and there were only heartfelt blessings there.

Chen Xi smiled and didn’t say anything.

The two of them didn’t leave right away, and they stood on guard here for an entire seven days of time instead.

“Looks like it will at least take two years for Tu Meng to completely refine and absorb the quintessence of this region. There’s no need for us to stand on guard here anymore.” Chen Xi pondered deeply before he spoke. During these seven days of time, he’d been constantly observing the changes in the quintessence of the region, and he noticed that as Tu Meng ceaselessly refined and absorbed it, it wasn’t just the quintessence energy that was being obtained by Tu Meng at an extremely slow speed, even the tribulation energy around the region was gradually vanishing.

According to this speed, it would at least take two years of time for Tu Meng to break through.

“Martial Ancestral Uncle, I gave Tu Meng instructions earlier, and he’ll utilize the secret technique to contact us once he has completed his cultivation.” Gu Yan spoke from the side.

“Since it’s like that, then let’s leave.” Chen Xi nodded. He wasn’t worried about Tu Meng. At such a moment, there was no one that could disturb Tu Meng. Unless that person possessed some sort of force that could break the Region Quintessence open. But it was very obvious that this was practically impossible.

After all, the Region Quintessence represented the strength of an entire region. Now, Tu Meng who was refining and absorbing the quintessence was equivalent to the owner that controlled the region. Under such circumstances, only the actual arrival of a Daolord could stop all of this.

Of course, all of this was merely based on Chen Xi’s deductions, and he wasn’t absolutely sure that Tu Meng was definitely safe.

However, was there anything in this world that was completely perfect?

At the very least, the current situation made it so that it wasn’t necessary for Chen Xi to worry about Tu Meng.

“Let’s go!” Chen Xi and Gu Yan immediately stopped hesitating, and they flashed away from this region and returned to the ground of the Forgotten Grounds of Chaos.

However, right when they’d just reached the ground, an extremely grand rumble of the Dao suddenly resounded throughout the heavens and the earth.

It was like the roar of a dragon or the howl of a tiger, and it seemed like the sound of nature was resonating.

At this moment, everything within the Forgotten Grounds of Chaos fell deathly silent, and only that rumble of the Dao resounded!
