Chapter 2058 – Misty Swamp

In the night sky, the nine dark blue moons emanated a rain of light illuminated the world.

Even if the three supreme kings, King Mo Luo, King Jiu Ling, and King Gu Yuan had occupied the most superior positions in midair, it was still impossible for them to completely absorb all the Origin Energy that rained down from the moons.

In other words, there was still a portion of the light that descended onto the ground of the Lost World, and it was exactly the essence of Origin Energy which those ferocious beasts on the ground were absorbing. 

Presently, Chen Xi was already able to clearly sense the existence of the essence of Origin Energy. It was like dew which was thick as syrup, and it emanated a clear dark blue radiance as it descended from the sky. Moreover, while it was mysterious, it also carried an allure that was impossible to resist.

It was like having a mountain of treasure right in front of his eyes, yet Chen Xi could only watch and was unable to take it away. So, it didn’t feel very nice.

All of this firmed Chen Xi’s determination to complete the Origin Creation Technique as soon as possible.

    …

Early in the morning on the next day, Chen Xi’s group continued once more on their journey.

Chen Xi didn’t waste time as they traveled, and he concentrated on researching the specifics of the Origin Creation Technique. As for everything else, he’d handed all of them to Ming to complete, and this included, leading the way….

They flew for over 10 days of time just like that. They didn’t encounter any danger all along the way, and their investigation allowed them to be clearly aware that they still hadn’t been able to leave the territory of Mo Luo Region!

Brink Region was the boundless area under King Mo Luo’s control.

Perhaps it could be said that the Lost World was divided into 3 areas. The Brink Region ruled by King Mo Luo, the Nine Soul Region ruled by King Jiu Ling, and the Ancient Origin Region ruled by King Gu Yuan.

According to Chen Xi’s opinion, it didn’t matter whether they headed top Nine Soul Region or Ancient Origin Region, and it was fine so long as they left Brink Region.

At the same time, Chen Xi’s group had gathered a huge amount of treasures as they travelled, and it was extremely beneficial to the improvement of their strengths.

Just like this very moment, both Chen Xi and Ming had attained the strength of a Saint Immortal!

Unfortunately, along with the passage of time, Chen Xi had gradually noticed that it had become very difficult to find any treasures that were suitable to increase their combat strengths.

It wasn’t because Brink Region had scarce amounts of treasures, and it was instead because Chen Xi and Ming’s combat strengths had transformed too quickly while the level of their strength was too high as well. So, the quality of the treasures they needed had naturally become specific.

Chen Xi didn’t mind about it much. So long as he could create the Origin Creation Technique, then he could improve his combat strength swiftly even if he wouldn’t find another treasure.

Because the nine moons in the night sky were the true most precious and attractive treasures in the Lost World!

All along the way, they’d encountered into conflict with the living beings residing in Brink Region on more than one occasion, and there were even many occasions where the enemy they encountered was too strong, and they had no choice but to flee.

Of course, all of this was naturally nothing worthy of mentioning to Chen Xi and Ming. Their only worry was that they’d been exposed by the successive battles….

If King Mo Luo were to come himself, then they would probably have no chance to flee any long!

I hope we’ll be able to leave this region before King Mo Luo himself takes actions…. As they continued flying forward, the ferocious beings they encountered on the way grew more and more numerous, and it caused Chen Xi to have a slight feeling that they were in danger.

    …

Brink Region.

At the peak of a lone mountain that towered into the sky stood a grand, magnificent, and completely ink black hall.

It stood towering there and was faintly visible from being enveloped by the sounds, yet it emanated a supremely dignified aura that allowed no disrespect.

This was where King Mo Luo resided and cultivated!

“Where are they fleeing towards?” King Mo Luo’s enormous pitch black figure stood proudly at the center of the hall, and his eyes were like two lakes while he spoke in an icy cold voice that resounded like a thunderclap.

“My King, they are fleeing towards the Nine Soul Region.” A pitch black flying snake was lying prone on the ground while it replied respectfully.

“The Nine Soul Region? Hmph! Could it be that those outsiders think that bad tempered nine headed lion wouldn’t kill them?” King Mo Luo laughed with ridicule while black mist surged around him. In the blink of an eye, he actually transformed into a peerlessly handsome man who wore a black cloak.

His gaze was like a bolt of lighting that carried a dark and astonishing glow, and he emanated a terrifying aura of supremacy and control as he stood casually on the spot.

“Oh, this is the appearance of those outsiders. According to rumor, the myriad of living beings in the outside world take pride in being able to take human form.” King Mo Luo observed the changes in his appearance and body, and then he sighed with emotion. “After so many years, it’s still the first time that I’ve seen a true human….”

The pitch black snake laid prone on the ground with an extremely respectful expression, and it didn’t dare interrupt at all.

“Continue pursuing them. Remember that they must be stopped from entering Nine Soul Region even if you’re unable to kill them!” King Mo Luo spoke indifferently.

“My King, what if they change directions and flee towards Ancient Origin Region?” The snake hesitated for a  moment before it summoned up the courage to ask this question.

“Haha! If they really do enter that place, then I would only feel happy for them.” King Mo Luo seemed to have thought of something, and a wisp of a strange arc arose on the corners of his mouth. “Go on. I’ll reward you well once this matter is done.”

“Yes!” The snake solemnly accepted its orders, and then it withdrew itself from the hall while maintaining that prone position. After that, it finally got up, flapped its black wings, charged swiftly into the sky, and instantly vanished amidst the boundless ocean of clouds.

“The variables of legend have arrived. So, will the situation in Origin World that has lasted for nine eras be changed?” King Mo Luo muttered within the hall, and his low voice reverberated through the hall and only dispersed a long time later.

    …

One month later, at an extremely vast and mist swamp.

Swoosh! Swoosh!

Two figures tore through the air and suddenly charged out from the swamp before vanishing in the blink of an eye.

Roar!

At practically the exact same time, a terrifying figure that was over 10km tall appeared from within the misty swamp, and it let out a rather disgruntled and furious roar that shook the world.

Even though it was infuriated to the extreme, its enormous figure actually didn’t dare step a single foot out of the swamp, and it just stood there howling and roaring for a long time before it vanished while still filled with unwillingness and anger.

Pu!

Chen Xi’s countenance was pale as he suddenly coughed up a mouthful of blood extremely far away in the distance, and he couldn’t help but gasp for breath.

On the other side, Ming’s expression was slightly gloomy as well, and a wisp of lingering fear that couldn’t be eliminated resided in the space between her brows.

Just a moment ago, they’d been travelling through that misty swamp when they suddenly suffered a surprise attack from a ferocious being that was over 10km tall.

That being was shaped like an ape yet had four eyes, and its back was densely covered in ghastly bone spikes, causing it to seem extremely ferocious.

Especially it’s combat strength, it was actually comparable to an expert at the Godrank Realm!

Suffering such an unexpected event had instantly caught Chen Xi and Ming off guard, and they had no choice but to flee.

Fortunately, that strange being hadn’t left the swamp in pursuit of them, otherwise, Chen Xi wondered if they would be able to escape this calamity today.

Ming asked. “Are you alright?”

“I’m fine.” Chen Xi shook his head, and then he frowned and said, “Looks like we must change our path.”

Ming was stunned. “Why?” 

According to the information they’d obtained previously, they just had to past through that swamp and cross a golden ocean before they would arrive at Nine Soul Region, so changing their direction now was clearly not worth it.

“That fellow, King Mo Luo, had clearly noticed our intentions to flee to the Nine Soul Region, and has dispatched numerous formidable beings to stop us on the way. So, if we continue acting arbitrarily, then the dangers we encounter will only grow more and more numerous.” Chen Xi had pondered deeply before he spoke.

He’d suspected this on more than one occasion during the last few days because they’d encountered such danger repeatedly along the way. Moreover, more and more terrifying beings had been appearing successively and attacked them at full force as they continued forward on their journey.

This itself seemed very strange.

Now, after they’d experienced that lethal calamity in the swamp, Chen Xi was completely sure that they couldn’t continue forward like this.

“Then what do you intend to do?” asked Ming with a frown on her face.

“Go around to Ancient Origin Region!” Chen Xi took a deep breath and said, “Presently, most of King Mo Luo’s forces are scattered throughout the path towards Nine Soul Region, and this is precisely the best opportunity for us to head to Ancient Origin Region. So long as we make the best use of our time, we might be able to arrive there before King Mo Luo’s forces are even able to react.”

Ming thought for a moment and agreed in the end. However, she still couldn’t avoid feeling worried. “But the Ancient Origin Region is a restricted area, and even supreme existences like King Mo Luo and King Jiu Ling don’t dare rashly step foot into it without King Gu Yuan’s permission….”

Chen Xi seemed to understand what Ming intended to say, and he interrupted her. “The more dangerous it is, the safer it is to use instead.

“Then shall we set out right now?” asked Ming.

Chen Xi instantly shrugged helplessly. “Not now. At the very least, I need to recover from the injuries I’ve suffered.”

As he spoke, he raised his head and looked up at the sky. “Not to mention that night is about to arrive, and the beasts will be leaving their nests. So, it isn’t suitable to travel anyway.”

Chen Xi and Ming immediately searched for a secluded rocky area, created an underground cave, and then hid there with Meng’meng.

In next to no time, the veil of night descended, and then the nine dark blue moons appeared once more in the sky.

“Ming, I don’t intend to wait any longer….” Chen Xi suddenly said, “I’ve already completely the cultivation technique for the 1st level of the Origin Creation Technique during the last few days, and I intend to try cultivating it tonight.”

Ming frowned and said, “Isn’t that too dangerous?”

Chen Xi shook his head and said, “There’s nothing in this world that’s absolutely safe. However, you don’t have to worry. I’ll stop immediately if I suffer any adverse effects.”

Ming couldn’t help but let out a faint sigh. She was very clearly aware that Chen Xi was only taking such risky action because he’d been forced to do so.

Actually, there was only a single reason. It was because the current situation they were in was too dangerous, and it was time to risk their lives! 

“Protect me.” Chen Xi acted without any hesitation, and he’d sat down cross-legged while he took a deep breath.
