Chen Xi had just stepped foot onto the banks of the Sacred Ocean of Blood when the desolate sound of a horn suddenly resounded from extremely far away on the other side of the ocean, and it surged through the starry sky.
“The enemy is here!”
“The enemy has shown himself!”
“Who is it?”
“It’s that Savior!”
Rumbling shouts resounded from the campsite on the other side of the ocean, and then countless Dao Defiants formed an army that surged into the air like a tide.
Devil Spiders, Bloodsuckers, Sin Adjudicators, Stoneface Devils, Cerberus…. Countless descendants of the Dao Defiant Clans converged into a vast army that covered the heavens and the earth, and it was a rather magnificent sight.
Moreover, there were four peak Divine Children at the back of the army!
If it was at any other ordinary time, then such a menacing sight would have probably any expert from the Divine Dao Protector Clans choose to avoid the army and dare not bear the brunt of it.
However, the current situation was completely different. Only Chen Xi was there on the side of the Divine Dao Protector Clans, and he seemed extremely tiny when compared to the army of Dao Defiants that covered the sky.
But even then, not a single member of the army dared to be careless!
Chen Xi had killed too many peak Divine Children in the last few days, and his methods were cold and merciless. He was simply like an invincible god of war, and not a single person had been able to shake him until now.
He was simply like a nightmare to all the experts from the Dao Defiant Clans. It made them dare not treat Chen Xi as an ordinary expert from the Divine Dao Protector clans.
Even if he’d appeared at the banks of the Sacred Ocean of Blood by himself, the experts of the Dao Defiant Clans had practically swarmed out in full force, and they didn’t dare hold back at all.
“Kill that bastard!”
“Uphold our honor!”
The vast army of Dao Defiants surged through the Sacred Ocean of Blood amidst shouts that shook the heavens and the earth, and they whistled over to Chen Xi.
At this moment, it was simply like a dark cloud that covered the sky was moving towards him. They’d formed a dense mass that approached menacingly, and it was horrifying to the extreme.
Most shocking of it all was that the aura of the Dao Defiants had clearly grown stronger when they were above the Sacred Ocean of Blood, and it was simply like they’d fused into one with the ocean. They seemed very imposing and fearless!
Chen Xi’s clothes and dense jet-black long hair fluttered with the bloody winds as he stood at the bank of the ocean, and his handsome face had a calm and indifferent expression on it.
Even though he was all alone, he was completely unafraid!
When the army of Dao Defiants appeared a few thousand kilometers away from him, Chen Xi finally took a step forward, and then his figure soared into the air.
A clear howl resounded from the Dao Calamity Sword which was scarlet red like blood, and it was like a volcano that had been dormant for 10,000 years had awoken once more.
Chen Xi swung his sword!
It was like a natural chasm that laid across the sky had suddenly descended here. Its blood red glow was utterly otherworldly, and when it descended down, space wasn’t able to endure its weight, obstacles weren’t able to affect its speed, and all things wailed in sorrow before this attack!
If the army of Dao Defiants was like a canvas that was being unrolled, then at this moment, this descending attack made an extremely long rip swiftly appear on the canvas.
Countless experts from the Dao Defiant clans hadn’t even been able to react as they were instantly annihilated by the rip, and they transformed into a mist of blood that vanished within the ocean.
The army instantly fell into disorder. Countless clamorous shouts resounded, and they were a mess of rage, terror, and panic.
This swing of Chen Xi’s sword had killed at least over a thousand Dao Defiants!
It was the epitome of a strike of the sword that possessed the strength to shake the world.
The army of Dao Defiants didn’t even have the chance to recover when Chen Xi’s figure had flashed like a bolt of lightning and charged into the army.
The scarlet red Dao Calamity Sword carried an ethereal and otherworldly glow as it swept through the army of Dao Defiants and shot towards the surroundings.
Its sword howl was like the rumbling of the Dao.
Its sword qi was like a surging tsunami.
Group after group of Dao Defiants perished before Chen Xi’s charge. Blood sprayed endlessly through the sky, and it was gorgeous yet horrifying.
The experts of the Dao Defiant clans weren’t weak. The weakest amongst them was at the Universe Enlightened Ancestral God Realm while the strongest was at the Ninth Star Region Lord Realm. Even if it were in the outside world, every single one of them were existences that could make countless living beings shiver in terror.
Unfortunately, they were really too weak for Chen Xi right now, and they weren’t able to pose a threat to him at all.
It was because the height they resided on was completely different.
Perhaps those experts of the Dao Defiant Clans were hawks that could look down upon the myriad of living beings in the world as ants. But to a Roc that traveled through the void, there was no difference between a hawk and an ant!
Chen Xi was like a rock that whistled through the surging ocean, and he crushed through all his enemies with invincible might!
The curtain to the horrifying war had been drawn, and a battle of life and death had begun. Even if they were respected as gods, they seemed extremely tiny before the mercilessness of war.
The vast army was merely fighting against a single person, Chen Xi.
If such a scene were recorded, it could definitely be transformed into an epic that evoked both praises and tears. Even if Chen Xi lost, it would still be a supremely glorious defeat.
After all, he was a single man going to war yet suffered resistance from an entire army of Dao Defiants!
It was a scene of a single person pushing forward courageously even if a million obstructed him!
If it happened to any other cultivator, that cultivator’s blood would definitely boil and be filled with heroic spirit. But Chen Xi didn’t.
He seemed to be practically completely emotionless. His expression was tranquil and indifferent while his gaze was calm and concentrated. He simply seemed like an emotionless executioner that was reaping the lives of gods!
The more he acted in this way, the more it horrified and instilled despair in his enemies.
Slaughtering in absolute silence was sometimes a force that struck directly at the heart, and it was sufficient to collapse the will of others and throw them into a state of helplessness and despair.
However, the army of Dao Defiants weren’t utterly routed by Chen Xi, and they grew even more frenzied instead. They were like moths rushing to a flame. They knew death was awaiting them, yet they still charged forward fearlessly.
Coupled with the truly enormous number of troops that formed the army of Dao Defiants, they were simply like an endless swarm of locusts, and it caused Chen Xi’s speed to slow down.
Obviously, the army of Dao Defiants couldn’t retreat on the 2nd battlefront, the Sacred Ocean of Blood, and they had to either fight or die.
It was unlike the battle on Slaughter Highlands where they could retreat to the Sacred Ocean of Blood even if they were defeated.
If they lost this battle, then the Dao Defiant Clans wouldn’t have much of a chance at winning the Battle of Dao Protectors anymore.
According to the battles of the past, if the experts from the Divine Dao Protector Clans were to charge through the Sacred Ocean of Blood and arrived at the 3rd battlefront, the Springs, then it represented that the Dao Defiants had lost.
At that time, those old seniors of the Dao Defiants who resided at the Springs would step forward and stop the Battle of Dao Protectors, and they would provide the customary compensation to the experts of the Divine Dao Protector clans.
Those seniors didn’t dare attack because once they did, it represented that they would suffer the counterattack of the 13 Dao Servants. That was bound to be a calamity for all Dao Defiant Clans.
In similar fashion, if the Divine Dao Protector Clans lost, then the 13 Dao Servants wouldn’t dare attack rashly as well. Because doing that might awaken the first ancestor of the Dao Defiants who was in deep sleep!
So, the Sacred Ocean of Blood had become the key to decide the entire situation of the battle. One it fell to the enemy, then the consequences would be simply unimaginable to the Dao Defiants.
That was why those experts from the Dao Defiant Clans fought so fearlessly, madly, and without any regard for their lives.
Actually, such a scene rarely occurred, and it was even to the extent that it had never occurred throughout the history of the Battle of Dao Protectors.
The reason was that when the experts of the Divine Dao Protector Clans arrived here, the Dao Defiants would be prepared as well. So, the battle on the Sacred Ocean of Blood would usually be decided by those experts who had advanced into the Daolord Realm.
But it was very obvious that this year’s Battle of Dao Protectors was extremely unique. Only Chen Xi was representing the Divine Dao Protector Clans, and he hadn’t even stepped foot into the Daolord Realm.
On the other hand, the Dao Defiants were in quite a hard pressed state as well. Not only had they lost around 10 peak Divine Children before the battle had even spread to the Sacred Ocean of Blood, they still didn’t possess a single expert that had broken through into the Daolord Realm.
Under such circumstances, the army of Dao Defiants had no other choice but to fight desperately with their lives on the line when facing a heaven defying monster like Chen Xi.
“Dammit! If he continues at this speed, then that Savior will be able to kill his way here in less than a day of time! What should we do?” Four peak Divine Children were standing before the campsite of the Dao Defiants, and they gazed at the distant battlefield while their faces were covered in a gloomy and indeterminate expression.
They hadn’t chosen to break through by force, so they’d been sent to the frontlines with the task of buying time for the other peak Divine Children who were trying to break through by force.
However, 7 days had passed now yet there wasn’t any sign of movement from those peak Divine Children who were in closed door cultivation. On the other hand, the Savior, Chen Xi, was like a god of slaughter that swept through the Sacred Ocean of Blood.
Moreover, based on the way Chen Xi fought, he was simply all-powerful and invincible. So, how could the hearts of those four peak Divine Children not burn with anxiousness?
“What else can we do? We can only risk our lives if he really kills his way here!” The descendant of the Devil Spider Clan who was leading the group spoke in a cold voice.
“Risk our lives?” The expressions of the other three peak Divine Children changed indeterminately. The reason they’d refused to break through by force was because they weren’t willing to risk their lives. So, when they faced this battle that had suddenly erupted between their Dao Defiant Clans and Chen Xi, they were even more unwilling to risk their lives and go head-on against Chen Xi.
“Don’t even try to avoid it. That fellow, Chi Qingying, is extremely ruthless and merciless. Once you try to avoid battle, then it’ll just bring harm to the clans you represent!” The Devil Spider glanced at those 3 companions of his and said, “However, all of you don’t have to be too worried. That Savior won’t be able to charge over for some time. Perhaps our Fellow Daoists would have broken through to the Daolord Realm before he arrives.”
These words were clearly a form of self-consolation, and it clearly lacked confidence.
However, the situation was what it was, and they were powerless to change it. They could only hope that one of those fellows in closed door cultivation would be able to advance into the Daolord Realm before Chen Xi arrived.
In the sky above the distant ocean of blood, Chen Xi’s blood red sword was like a bolt of lightning that shot through the surroundings.
No one had noticed that a strand of enormous energy that carried the aura of Destiny surged out from the Dao Calamity Sword from time to time, and then it was completely absorbed by Chen Xi….
