Chapter 1939 – Veil of Darkness

The Grand Abyss of Catastrophe was extremely large. It was unimaginably huge.

When worry arose in Jia Nan’s heart, he was completely unaware that numerous figures were standing before the large abyss since a long time ago.

There were over 10 people amongst this group. Shockingly, the person in the lead of the group was Wang Zhong who wore a blood red robe and was suffused with a violent and ancient aura.

All the figures behind him wore black robes and were cloaked. Moreover, their auras were icy cold and deathly. They seemed like emotionless monsters, and it was a horrifying sight.

At this moment, Wang Zhong stood at the side of the abyss. His clothes fluttered along with his long hair, and he stared into the depths of the abyss and fell into deep thought.

Rumble!

A rain of fire was pouring down from the sky here as well. It was like a waterfall that came from an ocean of fire was descending from the nine heavens, and it burned space and surged with a vast impetus.

If one looked carefully, one would notice that numerous enormous stars were actually within the pouring ocean of fire as it poured into the abyss.

Such a scene could be described as an ocean of fire descending from the nine heavens while stars fell into the abyss!

Even the stars that were falling in successively had been instantly devoured and vanished without a trace. This clearly showed how large the abyss was.

It was large, and it boundless because of this!

“This time, so long as we’re able to activate it successfully, then the last days of the Ancient God Domain would arrive….” After a long moment of silence, Wang Zhong couldn’t help but mutter, and his gaze towards the abyss couldn’t help but carried a wisp of fervor.

After that, Wang Zhong suddenly turned around and glanced at those black robed figures. “For the sake of this opportunity, our race has waited for too long. Now, the opportunity has finally arrived, so all of you should be clearly aware about what you should do after this.”

His voice was deep and icy cold.

“Yes My Lord!” Those black robed figures replied solemnly.

“If any mishaps occur in the mission, then all of you’re clearly aware of the consequences. I can’t be bothered to say anything further about it.” Wang Zhong turned around once more, and then he gazed at the abyss before he suddenly frowned and said, “Why has there still been no news?”

Those black robed figures fell silent, and they were extremely puzzled as well.

Swoosh!

Right at this moment, a strand of black mist suddenly surged out from extremely far away, and it whistled sharply through the air.

In merely an instant, the black mist had arrived in front of Wang Zhong.

Bang!

It exploded before strands of black mist transformed into a screen of light.

The scene of Chen Xi’s group besieging the black robed figure was surprisingly displayed on the screen.

Bang!

In the end, when the black robed figure on the screen had detonated himself, the screen rumbled, shattered into pieces, and then vanished without a trace.

On the other hand, Wang Zhong’s expression turned gloomy when he witnessed all of this, and the aura he emanated grew even more oppressive.

After experiencing a wave of restlessness, the black robed figures in the surroundings recovered their icy cold and silent state’s once more.

The atmosphere here was deathly silent, and it was oppressive to a practically suffocating extent.

After a long time, Wang Zhong let out a long sigh, and then he muttered. “Looks like they’ve already noticed the action we’ve taken….”

At this instant, he recalled the Holy Shaman’s Restriction that was branded on the Holy Beast’s skin, and he thought of Chen Xi.

His intuition told him that no matter if it was the Holy Shaman’s Restriction or that scene which he’d just witnessed, both of them were probably related to Chen Xi.

“Chen Xi! Oh! Chen Xi! I truly underestimated your ability!” A wisp of a ruthless expression arose in Wang Zhong’s eyes. “Do you think you can escape me just like that? Dream on!”

“Heed my command!” Wang Zhong turned around. His gaze was dim, icy cold, and bone piercing as he glanced at those black robed figures.

“From this moment onward, activate the Dao Reversal Region Energy! Mobilize all our forces throughout the Forgotten Grounds of Chaos and begin our plan!

“I want them to be unable to flee and have no choice but to fall into our trap!

“Do it! Quickly!”

On this day, strands of strange and mysterious black colored divine light suddenly surged into appearance from every single area within the Forgotten Grounds of Chaos, and it was like a veil of night that completely hid away the stars in the sky.

The entire Forgotten Grounds of Chaos fell into darkness.

At the same time, the energy of the Heaven Dao in this expanse of the world had become disorderly, and it caused everything to fall into a chaotic and disorderly state.

The land was destroyed.

Space was overturned.

All things were in disorder.

It was even to the extent that it became impossible to even determine the direction.

Everything started to fall into disorder and chaos as if it had fallen into a huge disaster!

The veil of night covered the sky and darkness descended.

Jia Nan suddenly raised his head. When he saw the stars that covered the sky had vanished amidst the darkness, his firm and tranquil expression had become solemn to the extreme.

“It started inevitably in the end….” At this moment, Jia Nan seemed to have made some sort of decision in the end, and his entire body emanated a resolute and sympathetic aura.

In the next moment, his figure flashed, and he leaped into the unfathomably deep Grand Abyss of Catastrophe!

Swoosh! Swoosh!

Chen Xi led them through space, and they quickly teleported away from the mysterious region and appeared above ground on the Forgotten Grounds of Chaos.

Just like before, the Forgotten Grounds of Chaos was covered in extreme danger.

However, Chen Xi and the others couldn’t be compared to the past anymore. Most of them had advanced into the ranks of Region Lords, and their strengths had transformed tremendously.

The benefits provided by the transformation of their strengths was that it was much easier for them to deal with the dangers they faced.

However, this didn’t represent that they were free of worries.

The Forgotten Grounds of Chaos was filled with too many unexpected dangers, and it was even to the extent that even they didn’t dare approach some dangers.

All along the way, Chen Xi had been observing the environment as he led them forward, and he was searching for a region in the sky above them.

Presently, amongst the members of their group, only Gu Yan hadn’t advanced into the ranks of Region Lords. So, as Gu Yan’s Martial Ancestral Uncle, Chen Xi would naturally not sit by idly and remain indifferent.

Even if the situation they faced was even more dangerous than before, Chen Xi didn’t feel that such a situation prevented him from helping Gu Yan obtain a Region Quintessence.

After all, there were almost three years of time before it was time to return to the Ancient God Domain, and such an amount of time was sufficient to accomplish many things.

“Hmm?” But in next to no time, Chen Xi’s eyes suddenly narrowed, and he stopped teleporting.

“What’s wrong?” The hearts of the others shook when they saw this.

“Look over there.” Chen Xi gazed towards the starry sky in the distance. “Have all of you noticed? The aura of the Forgotten Grounds of Chaos seems to have started changing since just now….”

The others noticed as well that a wisp of black was gradually expanding from extremely far away, and it expanded ceaselessly like ink that would quickly cover the entire expanse of starry sky in the distance. Moreover, it was spreading at an inconceivable speed!

It was like the veil of night was descending. It was a scene that was very normal in the outside world, but it was extraordinarily unusual and strange in the Forgotten Grounds of Chaos.

Coupled with what Chen Xi had said, they instantly noticed that the aura of the Forgotten Grounds of Chaos was undergoing a violent change indeed!

Chaos.

Disorder.

Instability.

Everything seemed to have fallen into a complex and disorderly state. It felt like the heavens and the earth were spinning, the scenes in the surroundings were changing successively, and it became difficult for them to determine the directions here.

In merely a short period of time, the sky was completely covered in darkness, and all the stars were covered by this veil of darkness.

This caused their expressions to turn solemn as they sensed an aura of danger.

Bang!

Chen Xi flicked out a strand of extraordinary sword qi from with his finger. It shot straight into the sky with the intention of piercing open the black veil that had covered the starry sky.

But an astounding scene appeared. That extraordinarily swift and sharp strand of sword qi seemed like mud that fell into an ocean when it entered the black veil of darkness, and it vanished without a trace and didn’t even cause a slight ripple!

This caused their hearts to sink. Chen Xi’s combat strength was extraordinarily formidable right now, yet he was actually unable to affect the veil of darkness at all. So, they wondered exactly what sort of terrifying energy filled the veil of darkness!

“Looks like we’re unable to enter the expanse of stars in the sky, and we can only act on the ground of the Forgotten Grounds of Chaos.” Chen Xi frowned and faintly guessed something.

“Could it be that the heretics from the last era were behind this?” Yea Chen spoke in a low voice.

“It should be.” Chen Xi nodded. “Everything within the Forgotten Grounds of Chaos is undergoing a transformation, and it’s becoming disorderly, chaotic, and much more dangerous than before. If I’m not wrong, then those heretics have probably noticed something, and they’ve started to act against us.”

As soon as these words were spoken, it caused their hearts to constrict.

“Everyone, we have to be ready for battle from now onward!” Chen Xi took a deep breath while a piercingly cold glow that was covered in killing intent surged within his black pupils.

Clang!

As he spoke, he’d withdrawn the Talisman Armament.

When he dealt with Leng Xinghun and Donghuang Yinxuan, Chen Xi hadn’t utilized a divine artifact at all. However, he’d already withdrawn the Talisman Armament now when the battle hadn’t even begun. This clearly showed that even he was extremely vigilant towards what was about to happen after this, and he didn’t dare be careless at all.

The others didn’t dare be careless when they saw this, and they circulated their cultivations, withdrew all sorts of divine artifacts, and were on full alert.

Bang! Bang! Bang!

At practically the exact same moment that they’d prepared themselves, the ground suddenly started shaking, and then the mountains in the vicinity collapsed while space rumbled.

It seemed like a powerful army was dashing towards them from extremely far away, and this army possessed a powerful imposing aura that shook the world and caused all things to dim down before it.

“What’s that?” Kong Youran was shocked as she gazed towards the distance.

Suddenly, a dense expanse of figures surged over from extremely far away on the horizon, and they seemed like a swiftly approaching tide.

Those figures consisted of Fiendgods that were 30km tall and possessed monstrous imposing auras, a myriad of Blood Rakshasa Wasps, ghastly corpses that only had their skeletons left, terrifying living beings that emanated a bloody glow that shot into the sky and possessed strange and savage appearances….

There were too many!

It was simply like a vast and mighty army formed from the living beings in the Forgotten Grounds of Chaos, and they covered the heavens and the earth as they charged over.

The killing intent emanated from all of them had converged them to a seemingly material form. It rumbled as it crushed the space in the surroundings, threw the surroundings into chaos, and was extremely horrifying.

“Shit! Those fellows seem to be dashing towards us!” Shi Yu spoke quickly.

“Let’s go!” Chen Xi practically instantly determined that they couldn’t continue forward, and they had to change the direction they were heading towards. Because there were too many dangerous and ferocious beings coming from afar, and they were like a boundless ocean that caused others to shudder with fear from even looking at them from afar.

However, right when they had just turned around, a sharp cry of a bird that resounded into the nine heavens had suddenly resounded from extremely far away in the new direction they faced towards.

Squawk!

An enormous ferocious flying beast that was completely pitch black, had nine savage heads, and covered an area of 150km appeared in the distance, and its ferocious might shook the world!
