If Chen Xi’s body was said to be a bottomless abyss, then the strands of energy that were ceaselessly surging into his body right now were like numerous streams that were surging incessantly into the bottomless abyss.
All of that had been going on since the battle had begun on the Sacred Ocean of Blood!
The key to everything was the Dao Calamity Sword.
As Chen Xi killed more and more enemies, the amount of energy of sin and evil that the Dao Calamity Sword devoured grew more and more enormous, and the numerous of the Pearls of Laws that it created grew more and more in number.
The accumulation of more and more Pearls of Laws caused the pure energy of the Divine Dao Laws that contained the aura of Destiny to grow larger in number, so they surged ceaselessly into Chen Xi’s body.
All of this caused Chen Xi’s combat strength to show no signs of weakening, and he even grew stronger as the battle progressed. His imposing aura was rising steadily as well!
Such a scene was like one where Chen Xi was undergoing an incessant transformation in battle, and it had no end to it!
If it was any other Ninth Star Region Lord in his place, then not to mention undergoing a ceaseless transformation, they would probably even be unable to endure a portion of all the energy Chen Xi was absorbing, and it would cause them to suffer qi deviation and perish on the spot.
This was the miraculous ability Chen Xi had gained after he fused with all the River Diagram fragments. He was like a void that was completely boundless, and it made him completely different from all the Ninth Star Region Lords in the world.
At the very least, even if he was fighting incessantly, absorbing energy without end, and transforming ceaselessly, he was still at the Ninth Star Region Lord Realm!
This had simply broken all the conventions of cultivating, and it had surpassed the existing scope and boundaries of his realm of cultivation. It couldn’t be judged by any standards.
Chen Xi was clearly aware of it as well. As he obtained more and more energy, he yearned more and more for it.
He had a strong feeling that he had to absorb even more energy in order to advance into the Daolord Realm!
The heavens and the earth shook while the area above the Sacred Ocean of Blood had become a true purgatory. Corpses descended like raindrops while the blood of the gods poured down, causing surging and tempestuous waves to arise from the ocean of blood below.
Shrill cries, furious howls, the sounds of battle, the sounds of collision…. All sorts of sounds were interweaved together and surged incessantly in the starry sky above the Sacred Ocean of Blood, and it was simply horrifying.
Chen Xi who held the Dao Calamity Sword in his hand was still calm, indifferent, and concentrated as before while he swept mercilessly through the enemy army, and countless souls were reaped by the blade of his sword.
Later on, the Dao Calamity Sword suddenly soared into the sky, and then its blade pointed downward before it stabbed forcefully into the Sacred Ocean of Blood.
In an instant, the army of Dao Defiants in an area of 5,000km around the Dao Calamity Sword perished where they stood, and their bodies exploded into pieces and vanished on the spot.
At this moment, the blood red blade of the Dao Calamity Sword was dark red and seemed to be seething as it stabbed into the ocean like an immovable mountain.
One could clearly see energy of sin and evil was surging over and being devoured incessantly by the Dao Calamity Sword. All of that energy had come from the corpses of Chen Xi’s fallen enemies and the boundlessly vast Sacred Ocean of Blood!
There was a boundless amount of the energy of sin and evil buried within the ocean, and countless experts from the Divine Dao Protector Clans had lost their lives here.
Yet now, the ocean of blood that covered the starry sky and contained monstrous energy of sin and evil was like an inexhaustible supply of energy to the Dao Calamity Sword, and it was ceaselessly and madly devouring and refining the ocean of blood!
The ocean water which was thick like blood within an area of 500km around the Dao Calamity Sword was visibly transforming into a clear and translucent state.
That was because all the energy of sin and evil within it had been devoured by the Dao Calamity Sword, so the color of the water changed accordingly.
But in next to no time, the cleared up area of the ocean was covered in an endless blood red color again. The reason was that the Sacred Ocean of Blood was too vast, and the amount of sin and evil it contained was inconceivable.
However, all of this was exactly what Chen Xi wanted. Because it allowed the Dao Calamity Sword to ceaselessly devour even more energy.
At the same time, Chen Xi stopped pushing forward, and he started to kill around the Dao Calamity Sword. Even though he was barehanded, every single move he made possessed the might to pluck a star from space or crush a moon. Even if enemies were surging over from all directions, they were actually unable to shake him in the slightest.
“That fellow has finally been trapped!” One of the peak Divine Children at the campsite heaved a sigh of relief.
“Idiot! He isn’t trapped at all! He’s clearly using that blood red sword to refine and absorb the energy within the Sacred Ocean of Blood!” The Devil Spider had a livid expression on his face as he berated in a low voice.
In an instant, the other peak Divine Children were surprised and bewildered.
At this point in the battle, how could they have been unable to discern that Chen Xi’s imposing aura showed no signs of weakening, and it was growing stronger instead!
Especially the blood red sword of his. It was simply all-powerful, swallowed everything around it, and actually innately countered the energy of sin and evil!
Exactly what sword is that?Why is it so heaven defying?
It was unimaginable to the four of them, but they were able to discern that as it ceaselessly devoured the energy of sin and evil, Chen Xi’s combat strength was actually undergoing an incessant transformation. It was growing stronger and stronger!
This caused their hearts to feel cold as if they’d fallen into an icy pit. Chen Xi was all alone and hadn’t even stepped foot into the Daolord Realm, but he possessed such heaven defying and terrifying combat strength, and it made them wonder how terrifying he would be if he was able to advance into the Daolord Realm!
The army of Dao Defiants that was stationed at the Sacred Ocean of Blood was said to possess 100,000 members while the weakest amongst them was at the Universe Enlightened Ancestral God Realm. So long as a Daolord didn’t act against it, then such an army was sufficient to sweep through the entire Ancient God Domain with ease.
But at this moment, such a vast army was merely fighting against a single person, Chen Xi. However, not only had it been unable to crush him until now, the losses it suffered were growing along with the passage of time.
At this point at least around 20,000 Dao Defiants had lost their lives at Chen Xi’s hands!
Such an amount didn’t seem very shocking, but only someone who truly understood what they represented would understand how terrifying it was.
After all, it was an accomplishment in battle that just a single person had attained!
Had anyone been able to accomplish it throughout the history of the Battle of Dao Protectors?
No one had!
Yet now, Chen Xi had accomplished it. Moreover, this number was increasing incessantly along with the passage of time!
“We can’t hesitate any longer. Our army hasn’t been able to kill him for so long, and it has caused their spirits to be dampened. The situation is showing signs of falling into disorder. If we still don’t head over and support them, then it won’t be long before our army will lose its will to fight and flee!” One of the peak Divine Children had an extremely gloomy expression on his face as he gritted his teeth and spoke.
“Support them? Who will do that? We’ll only be going to give our lives away even if the four of us went there together! That kid isn’t a human at all, he’s a monster! Only a Daolord Realm expert can stop him!” The Devil Spider shouted in an agitated state. “All of you can go over there if you want! I’m not going to go give my life away!”
The expressions of the other 3 peak Divine Children changed indeterminately. They were horrified, anxious, aggrieved, and helpless. Their hearts were conflicted and heavy to the extreme.
“Didn’t that fellow, Chi Qingying, brag about breaking through by force? So many days have passed yet there hasn’t been any sign of movement from them? It seems to me like they were just using it as an excuse, and they were actually utterly unafraid of facing that Savior in battle!” The Devil Spider grew more and more agitated as he spoke. “In my opinion, they’ve clearly taken us to be their cannon fodder. They would naturally be happy to see it if we’re able to stop that Savior, and they would probably be the first to flee if we fail!”
He spoke with a furious tone, and he was clearly venting the uneasiness and terror in his heart.
Meanwhile, one of the other peak Divine Children was about to speak when his figure suddenly stiffened, and his eyes almost popped out from their sockets. He cried. “Shit! Our army has collapsed!”
The expressions of the other 3 peak Divine Children changed simultaneously as they swiftly shot their gazes towards the ocean of blood in the distance. In an instant, they noticed that the vast army which was attacking Chen Xi actually seemed like a group of beasts that were fleeing in panic. They were crying in horror as they fled towards the campsite.
Every single one of them had terror all over their faces. Their will to fight had completely collapsed. At this moment, it wasn’t just impossible to stop them because they wouldn’t dare face Chen Xi again even if they were threatened with death.
“That fellow is a monster! He can’t be killed!”
“I don’t want to die! I don’t want to die!”
“Flee! Quickly! That Savior isn’t someone we can deal with at all! The clansmen of our Stoneface Devil Clan will be annihilated if we don’t flee right now!”
A wave of shouts resounded throughout the starry sky above the ocean of blood. When the other Dao Defiants who still had the will to fight witnessed this scene, their will was instantly shaken, and then they fled as well.
For a time, the starry sky above the ocean of blood was covered in fleeing figures. It was like an abyss was right behind them, and it intended to swallow them up.
All of the peak Divine Children were dumbstruck by this scene, and it was like they’d lost their souls. We’re finished. The army had been completely defeated. It’s impossible to turn this situation around even if the four of us head over ourselves.
What should we do?Is the Sacred Ocean of Blood really going to be lost as well? Moreover, it’s going to be lost to a single person?
Such a blow was too heavy, and they were utterly unable to accept it.
“Get the fuck back there! Get the fuck back there and fight him! I’ll kill anyone who dares to retreat!” A peak Divine Child was furious. He howled with a grim voice that shook the surroundings. But would anyone listen to him now?
It was even to the extent that some roared madly with resentment. “All of you peak Divine Children are hiding at the back and asking us to give our lives away! How ruthless of you!”
It was like a single stone in a pond that gave rise to a thousand ripples. In an instant, numerous insults and curses resounded, and all of them were directed towards the 4 peak Divine Children.
Their faces instantly turned grim, and they were aggrieved to the point they were on the verge of exploding with rage. However, they truly didn’t dare to step forward and fight Chen Xi.
So, they could only watch helplessly as the entire army collapsed and fled.
However, to their surprise, Chen Xi who was standing above the Sacred Ocean of Blood hadn’t pursued the army, nor had he seized the opportunity to charge into the campsite. Conversely, he just strangely remained on the spot.
This caused the 4 peak Divine Children to be stunned. What does that fellow intend to do?
“He… he… he’s refining and absorbing the energy within the Sacred Ocean of Blood!” Someone had seen through it and couldn’t help but cry out in shock and fury.
However, the 4 peak Divine Children weren’t infuriated when they noticed all of this. On the contrary, they actually felt lucky like a heavy burden had been lifted from their shoulders….
Yes, they felt like a heavy burden had been lifted from their shoulders. Even though it seemed very humiliating, but… wasn’t it better if that fellow didn’t charge over for now?
Was it absurd?
Was it laughable?
It was nothing before the prospect of death!
