Three treasured carriages dashed swiftly at full speed through the boundless starry sky, and they left behind three gorgeous and multicolored rays of light in space.
Within the carriage that was in the lead, Li Wentai spoke with disdain. “Young Miss, what sort of figure is Chen Xi, how could that kid compare to him? There are numerous people in the world with the same name and surname. That kid is in such a weak state, so how could he possibly be compared to the Oracle Mountain’s Chen Xi?”
As he finished speaking, Li Wentai couldn’t help but shake his head and chuckle lightheartedly.
Since the Dao Discussion that was jointly held by the five extremes of the Imperial Region, this name was like the most dazzling star that became the most renowned genius in the entire Ancient God Domain.
His Sword Dao was extraordinary, his Talisman Dao was peerless, and he crushed the Sovereign Sect’s Leng Xinghun, the Divine Institute’s Donghuang Yinxuan, and various other experts to reign supreme over all experts. He was the genius that led the tide of a generation!
So, how could anyone throughout the Ancient God Domain not be aware of a peerless and monstrous genius like Oracle Mountain’s Chen Xi?
Even though a few hundred years had passed since the Dao Discussion had been held, rumors about Chen Xi were still one of the most talked about topics in the Ancient God Domain.
How could Li Wentai be unaware of such a figure?
There were even some rumors that said it was very likely for Chen Xi to have already stepped foot into the ranks of Daolords!
However, there were also rumors that said Chen Xi was trapped within the mysterious and unfathomable Forgotten Grounds of Chaos, and it was impossible for him to return to the Ancient God Domain.
Li Wentai was unable to be certain of the truth. However, no matter what, he still felt that Chen Xi was absolutely an existence that was worthy of respect.
It was exactly because of this that Li Wentai seemed to be so disdainful when Xue Yun told him that the young man called himself Chen Xi.
One was an outstanding personal disciple of Original Mountain while the other was on the verge of death and weak to the point of even being unable to speak. So how could they possibly be the same person?
“Uncle Li, I didn’t say that he’s that Chen Xi.” Xue Yun puckered her lips and smiled. She similarly didn’t think that the young was that Chen Xi, and she felt that they just had the same name.
“However, he is probably not a bad person. Even though he noticed that we’re in a slightly bad situation, he didn’t seem dispirited at all, and he even spoke about helping us.” Xue Yun recalled the conversations she’d had with Chen Xi throughout these days, and a wisp of a smile couldn’t help but appear on the corners of her mouth. She was able to sense that Chen Xi’s intention to help her were sincere.
“Hah! Him?” Li Wentai couldn’t help but laugh with ridicule, and his voice was filled with indifference. “As far as I’m concerned, he can’t even take care of himself yet brags about helping us. The young people these days really like to exaggerate.”
When he spoke up to here, he gazed at Xue Yun with a solemn expression and said, “Young Miss, don’t engage too much with that glib-tongued and boastful fellow from now on so as to avoid picking up some bad habits. As it’s said, one if influenced by the company one keeps….”
Before he could finish speaking, Xue Yun rubbed her head as if her head hurt and interrupted him. “Alright! Alright! I’ll remember that Uncle Li. You’ve said it a few times already in the last few days.”
Li Wentai sighed. “I watched you grow up, so I’m naturally afraid that you’ll go down the wrong path. I couldn’t even be bothered to provide such warnings if it was anyone else.”
Xue Yun grinned and said, “Uncle Li, I know you love me the most.”
Li Wentai roared with laughter and rubbed her head tenderly. “Our journey has been smooth so far, and we were lucky enough to find a Dragonskin Jade Herb at Devil Vanquish Swamp. If nothing unexpected happens throughout our return journey, then we’ll definitely be able to return on time and heal your father’s injuries.”
Xue Yun nodded, and then her clear eyes swept towards the boundless starry sky in the distance while her expression became slightly heavy.
She muttered. “Li Wentai, if we’re unable to return to the clan in time, then would my father….”
Li Wentai frowned and berated. “Don’t talk nonsense!”
She puckered her lips while a wisp of gloominess that couldn’t be eliminated remained in the space between her brows. In the end, she took a deep breath and said, “Uncle Li, father told me that if he’s unable to hold on, then I should never step foot into the clan again and the further I go the better. What… exactly is going on?”
Li Wentai’s brows knit together even more tightly but he didn’t say anything in the end.
“Uncle Li, all of this is related to the Gongye Clan, right? I heard that they want to take possession of my Xue Clan’s ultimate treasure, the Snowspirit Seven Secrets Energy….” Xue Yun spoke abruptly, and she was interrupted by Li Wentai before she could finish speaking.
At this moment, Li Wentai’s expression seemed extremely solemn and cold, and a cold glow flowed within his eyes. He gazed at Xue Yun and said, “Young Miss, all of this isn’t related to you! Don’t speak another word of this in the future!”
Xue Yun’s entire body trembled as she was shocked by Li Wentai, and she finally nodded after quite some time passed. “I… understand.” Her voice was low and slightly heavy.
Li Wentai felt a wisp of indescribable pain surged through his heart when he witnessed this. He embraced her with tender affected and said lightly, “Young Miss, don’t worry. Anyone who wants to harm you will have to step over my dead body!”
Xue Yun nodded and lay silently in his embrace while heaving a long sigh of relief. However, the gloominess and worry in her heard didn’t vanish just like that.
On the contrary, Li Wentai’s fierce reaction made her feel even more doubtful and worried about everything….
Suddenly, a wave of sharp howls resounded from extremely far away in the starry sky. It was like a devilish howl that rumbled as it swept towards the surroundings.
“Shit!” Li Wentai’s body stiffened, and then he swiftly stood up and walked out of the treasured carried.
At this moment, his expression had actually become extremely solemn and carried a wisp of indescribable gloominess. He muttered. “How quick! Looks like they don’t intend to allow us to return to the clan!”
“Have our enemies arrived?” Meanwhile, Xue Yun was alarmed as well, and her exquisite and pretty far was covered in surprise and bewilderment.
“Young Miss, you continue moving forward. Leave these damnable bastards to me. Remember that if I’m unable to return this time, then you absolutely mustn’t turn around to look for me!” At this moment, Li Wentai seemed to be ready to risk everything, and his entire body was covered in killing intent while he seemed determined to fight to the death.
Xue Yun trembled while her pretty face turned ghastly pale. She held tightly onto Li Wentai’s sleeve and said anxiously, “No! Uncle Li, they’re coming for me, so if we’re going to fight, then let’s fight together!”
Li Wentai shook his sleeve and shook Xue Yun’s hand off, and then he said coldly, “Do as I said, otherwise, I wouldn’t be able to die in peace!”
As soon as he finished speaking, his figure flashed, and he’d charged towards the starry sky behind them.
“Uncle Li.” Xue Yun shouted with extreme grief and sorrow, and two streams of warm and clear tears slid down her face.
She was clearly aware how terrifying their enemies were this time because their enemies hadn’t even hesitated to dispatch a few Imperial Monarchs to capture her.
Under such circumstance, Li Wentai was simply courting death by heading into battle by himself.
Her father’s fate was unknown. Now, her Uncle Li who doted on her the most might never come back.
In an instant, Xue Yun suddenly felt that this world had become dark while she felt indescribably sorrowful and helpless, and she couldn’t help but wrap her arms around her knees. Even if she was gritting her teeth forcefully, her tears still couldn’t be stopped from flowing down and drenching her clothes….
However, to her surprise, Li Wentai’s figure had appeared once more in front of her after the time for a mere incense stick to burn!
What? Xue Yun was stunned. She rubbed her eyes forcefully, and she finally determined that she wasn’t seeing things.
This caused her to be instantly unable to restrain herself. She leaped into Li Wentai’s embrace and cried. “Uncle Li, Uncle Li….”
At this moment, Li Wentai seemed to be slightly puzzled. He had a dazed expression as he muttered. “Don’t cry. Don’t cry, Young Miss….”
After a long time passed, Xue Yun finally restrained her emotions and couldn’t help but ask. “Uncle Li, what exactly happened?”
Li Wentai shook his head and revealed a dazed expression. “I don’t know as well. Those fellows were actually died when I arrived there!”
“What!?” Xue Yun was stunned and filled with disbelief.
It wasn’t just her. Even until this very moment, Li Wentai was still slightly dazed. He was unable to believe all of this, and it simple felt like a dream to him.
Our enemies died just like that? Who… exactly did it?
“Uncle Li, do you think it was him?” Xue Yun seemed to have thought of something, and her clear eyes had lit up.
“Who?” Li Wentai’s eyes narrowed.
Xue Yun pointed at the 2nd carriage in the distance.
“Him? Impossible! It’s absolutely impossible!” A weak figure that seemed like a corpse had appeared in Li Wentai’s mind, and then he couldn’t help but shake his head repeatedly.
“Wait a moment Uncle Li. I’ll go look for myself.” Xue Yun refused to give up, and her figure flashed towards the 2nd carriage.
Li Wentai couldn’t help but laugh bitterly when he saw this, and then he muttered. “I would rather believe they committed suicide than believe that it was him…. If I’m wrong, then I wouldn’t mind kowtowing to him. But it’s clearly impossible!”
“Chen Xi!” Xue Yun entered the 2nd carriage with excitement, but she noticed to her disappointment that Chen Xi was still lying there while seeming to be on the verge of death.,
At this moment, she couldn’t help but wonder if she was thinking too much. Because there were Imperial Monarchs amongst their enemies, so how could Chen Xi possibly be a match for them even if he’d fully recovered?
Not to mention that he was so weak right now and those enemies had been annihilated in such a short period of time!”
“Miss Xue Yun, what is it?” Chen Xi opened his eyes and spoke with a puzzled expression.
“It’s nothing.” Xue Yun took a deep breath and spoke swiftly. “Something unexpected occurred just now but it has been dealt with. I just came to notify you about it.”
She stared fixedly at Chen Xi as she spoke, and she seemed as if she wanted to discover something.
However, Chen Xi’s display made her feel completely disappointment because Chen Xi’s eyes merely narrowed while he spoke with surprise. “Something unexpected? Was it that ear piercing noise from before? Miss Xue Yun, are you alright?”
At this point, Xue Yun had completely given up on the idea that Chen Xi had dealt with those enemies, and she shook her head and said, “No, I’m fine. Rest well. I’m going to look for Uncle Li to discuss some matters.”
As she spoke, she flashed out of the carriage.
Looks like it really wasn’t him…. Right, there are so many people with the same name in this world. So, how could he possibly be that Chen Xi? Xue Yun muttered in her heart. Even though she thought in this way, she still felt an incomprehensible wisp of dejection.
On the other hand, Chen Xi heaved a sigh of relief within that carriage, and a trace of a smile appeared on the corners of his mouth. He seemed to be talking to himself as he said, “Tu Meng, thank you.”
