A world shaking collision resounded while dazzling and resplendent divine radiance shot towards the surroundings.
At this moment, Xue Yun couldn’t help but close her eye, but she couldn’t stop her tears from flowing. Never had she imagined that in this helpless moment where even her own second uncle had betrayed here, a friend whom she hadn’t known for long would actually stand up for her at this moment!
Indeed. Chen Xi was extremely weak and was taken to be an utterly weak ant by those enemies of hers. But it just so happened that Chen Xi dared to step forward to save her. So, how could Xue Yun avoid feeling moved by this?
So, when she saw Xue Yun saw her second uncle, Xue Yinghai, launch a killing blow at Chen Xi, Xue Yun couldn’t help but cry. She was in despair, and her entire body couldn’t help but tremble violently.
“Martial Ancestral Uncle, should I kill this old bastard?” Suddenly, a deep and rough voice resounded, and it caused Xue Yun to be shocked. Martial Ancestral Uncle? Old bastard? What’s going on?
She instinctively opened her eyes, and then her entire body shook and was stunned on the spot with a dumbstruck expression.
At this moment, Xue Yinghai was like a little chick that was being held in the hands of a robust man. Xue Yinghai was unable to escape no matter how he struggled, and his face was covered in terror and helplessness.
On the other hand, the extremely robust man was standing obediently in front of Chen Xi as if he was seeking Chen Xi’s opinion.
What’s going on? Xue Yun wondered whether she was dreaming because the scene before her was simply too inconceivable.
Second Uncle is a Second Star Imperial Monarch! Dealing with Chen Xi would simply be extremely easy to him! Who would have imagined that he would be crushed and subdued in an instant!?
Who’s that robust man? Where did he come from?
At this moment, it wasn’t just Xue Yun who was stunned. Everyone in the hall was the same.
All of them had witnessed the events that occurred just now, and they’d clearly scene Chen Xi stand on the spot without moving as if he’d been terrified when Xue Yinghai attacked.
But right at that moment, this robust man had suddenly appeared out of thin air, and he’d merely stretched out an arm before he’d crushed all of Xue Yinghai’s attacks. After that, his palm that was like a cattail leaf fan had grabbed and restrained Xue Yinghai, causing Xue Yinghai to be unable to escape!
Such a method of battle was simple and straightforward to the extreme, and it was extremely shocking as well.
Just as Xue Yun thought, Xue Yinghai was a Second Star Imperial Monarch. However, he was actually weak like a piece of paper before this robust man!
This scene was extremely shocking.
Especially Li Wentai. He was the closest to Chen Xi, so he’d personally experienced the imposing aura emanated by the man, and it caused his entire body to be unable to help but shudder while he felt extremely astounded.
Amongst the people in the surroundings, only Chen Xi’s expression had remained the same, and he was calm and composed. From the beginning until the end, he’d maintained the same pose, and he hadn’t even spared a glance at Xue Yinghai.
At this moment, they finally understood that Chen Xi hadn’t been terrified out of his wits, and it was instead because he had someone to rely on!
In an instant, the expressions of the refined man and the others from the Gongye Clan had changed slightly. They glanced at Chen Xi, and then glanced at the robust man while their expressions changed indeterminately.
With their abilities of discernment, how could they have been unable to discern that the aura emanated by the robust man was clearly something that only a Region Lord could possess?
But this robust man addressed Chen Xi as Martial Ancestral Uncle. This itself was truly quite horrifying!
The robust man was naturally Tu Meng!
He’d been stealthily following Chen Xi all along the way. With the inheritances of Oracle Mountain and his terrifying cultivation that was amongst the ranks of Region Lords, it was extremely easy for him to conceal his presence from everyone within the hall.
“Don’t kill him.” This was the first few words that Chen Xi spoke, and it made Xue Yinghai heave a sigh of relief in his heart while the terror in his heart eased up slightly.
“Cripple him first and allow Xue Yun to deal with him later.” This was the second sentence that Chen Xi spoke. It made Xue Yinghai’s countenance turn ghastly pale in an instant, and undisguisable terror appeared on his face.
Xue Yinghai hadn’t even recovered from his emotions when it felt like a lofty mountain had smashed down onto him. The bones throughout his body were instantly broken while his vision turned black. He instantly lost consciousness and didn’t even have the chance to let out a shrill cry.
Tu Meng tossed Xue Yinghai away in a merciless manner, and it was like he was throwing trash away. Xue Yinghai had been crippled. Blood seeped out from his entire body while he fell unconscious. Even if he woke up now, he would still be a cripple and have no cultivation at all.
Such a blood scene caused the eyelids of those members of the Gongye Clan to twitch violently, and their expressions gradually turned solemn.
Even Xue Yun and Li Wentai felt extremely shocked in their hearts. They opened their eyes wide and seemed as if they still didn’t dare believe their eyes.
In an instant, a Second Star Imperial Monarch had been crippled just like that!
This sudden and unexpected event caused the atmosphere in the hall to grow even more deathly silent, and it was suffocating and oppressive.
“Who exactly are you?” The refined man’s gaze locked onto Chen Xi as he spoke coldly.
The others acted in the same way. Because they’d noticed that the robust man had addressed Chen Xi as Martial Ancestral Uncle and even obeyed Chen Xi’s every order. They caused them to realize that Chen Xi’s identity was probably not ordinary.
Chen Xi thought for a moment before he spoke casually. “Chen Xi.”
“Chen Xi, it’s already at a time like this, yet you still intend to deceive us!?” Xue Yun was the first who was unable to restrain herself from speaking, and her voice carried a trace of anger.
She suddenly recalled those enemies that had died incomprehensibly on their way back to the clan, and she realized that it was probably Chen Xi who’d dispatched the robust man to resolve the danger they faced in secrets.
At this moment, Chen Xi didn’t know whether to laugh or cry, and he felt like he really didn’t know how he should explain this. He swore that he’d never concealed his identity since the beginning, but they just refused to believe him!
“Miss Xue Yun, I don’t like hearing things like that. How could anyone in this world dare to pretend to be my Martial Ancestral Uncle?” Tu Meng spoke with a booming voice, and his voice revealed a prideful tone.
“You wouldn’t really be… that… personal disciple of Oracle Mountain… Chen Xi, right?” Li Wentai seemed to have realized something. His face suddenly stiffened, and he felt like his mouth had gone dry as he spoke with a trembling voice.
Chen Xi nodded because there was no need to conceal this.
However, when they obtained his acknowledgement, the expressions of the people in the hall had become colorful.
This fellow is actually that personal disciple of Oracle Mountain who’s renowned throughout the world for being a peerless genius!
Yet I… actually didn’t recognize him….
Xue Yun’s pupils dilated while her mind was completely muddled. It was simply impossible to describe her current feelings.
Li Wentai was the same. Especially when he thought of his cold, indifferent, and disdainful attitude towards Chen Xi all along the way. His lips couldn't help but tremble with bitterness, and he truly wished for nothing more than to slap himself.
I really had eyes but failed to see!
On the other hand, the expressions of the refined man and the others from the Gongye Clan had changed violently. How could this have happened? This fellow is actually that Chen Xi from Oracle Mountain?
What… what is he doing here?
At this instant, they truly wished for nothing more than to trample on the unconscious Xue Yinghai to the point he died. That damnable bastard spoke with certainty that this fellow isn’t that Chen Xi. So what the fuck is going on?
“Wait! Haven’t there been rumors that Chen Xi perished in the mysterious Forgotten Grounds of Chaos, and it’s impossible for him to return?” An Imperial Monarch from the Gongye Clan seemed to have thought out something and spoke with a low voice.
The others were extremely surprised and bewildered.
Slight waves couldn’t help but arise in Chen Xi’s heart when he heard these words. The entire Ancient God Domain thinks that I’m dead….
“There’s no need to continue guessing. I’m sure that he’s definitely Chen Xi.” Suddenly, the refined man recovered his calm while a wisp of a grin had appeared on the corners of his mouth. “I’m only puzzled by the fact that this fellow’s aura is truly too weak right now. But that isn’t important anymore.”
When he spoke up to here, his voice carried a wisp of excitement as he suddenly stood up, and his gaze locked onto Chen Xi as he said while smiling, “Everyone, this is a rare opportunity!”
It was naturally an opportunity to kill Chen Xi!
In an instant, the other members of the Gongye Clan had reacted to the refined man’s words. Since Chen Xi was so weak right now, then his combat strength would definitely be extremely weak.
Wasn’t such a moment that best opportunity to annihilate Chen Xi and avenge Gongye Zhefu?
When they thought in this way, all of them were excited. As for Tu Meng, they weren’t afraid of him at all.
Even though Tu Meng was a Region Lord, they didn’t just possess a Region Lord on their side, they had 8 Imperial Monarchs as well!
Under such circumstances, how could Chen Xi fight them?
In an instant, the atmosphere within the hall had suddenly changed, and all of them had actually started targeting Chen Xi!
Xue Yun and Li Wentai had noticed that the situation was bad as well, and their hearts instantly tightened while they felt anxiousness arise in them. If Chen Xi were to die in the Xue Clan, then the consequences would be unimaginable!
However, right at this extremely dangerous moment, Chen Xi didn’t seem to be anxious at all, and he said casually to Li Wentai, “Remember what I said just now? Your responsibility is to take good care of Xue Yun, and you don’t have to do anything else.”
Li Wentai was stunned. No matter how he wracked his head, he was unable to figure out where Chen Xi got such confidence from.
Chen Xi couldn’t be bothered to pay attention to Li Wentai, and he said to Tu Meng, “End the fight quickly. If it’s really too difficult for you, then I can only do it myself.”
These words seemed to be extremely arrogant when they entered into the ears of the others, and it made the refined man and the others from the Gongye Clan start laughing from extreme rage. This damnable bastard still hasn’t figured out the situation until now?
“Martial Ancestral Uncle, you absolutely must not fight! Leave these bastards to me!” Tu Meng seemed to be rather anxious, and he wasn’t willing to let Chen Xi fight in such a weak state, so even his tone had become extremely firm and murderous.
“You’re courting death!” The refined man had shouted as his figure suddenly flashed, and a strand of extremely terrifying and monstrous aura surged explosively from him.
The refined man shouted loudly. “Leave this bastard to me. All of you go kill that bastard, Chen Xi!” As he shouted, he clawed with his palm, and it transformed into a towering bolt of violet lightning that blasted down explosively towards Tu Meng.
However, since the moment he’d taken action, Tu Meng had already roared loudly while his entire body emanated golden radiance like the scorching sun. He was like a peerless god of devils as he forcefully blasted his fist at the refined man.
At the same time, he swept his other arm out horizontally, and it was like a myriad of mountains pushing forward. Space rumbled and was crushed into pieces as his attack enveloped all the other 8 Imperial Monarchs from the Gongye Clan.
At this moment, Tu Meng actually intended to deal with all the great figures from the Gongye Clan by himself!
How could merely the word domineering be even sufficient to describe this?!
