Chen Xi was still alive!
This wouldn’t be shocking at all if it were at any other time.
However, all the Dao Servants were clearly aware that Chen Xi had been besieged by 10 Daolords.
But Chen Xi had still been able to survive such circumstances, and that was too shocking.
“How could that be possible?” One of them exclaimed.
Right, how could that be possible?
If Chen Xi was a Daolord, then they could somewhat accept this outcome, but it was too inconceivable when he wasn’t even a Daolord!
After all, even they, the Dao Servants who protected Godrank Mountain, would feel extremely pressured when facing 10 Daolords.
But Chen Xi… had actually survived such an attack!
All the Dao Servants were shocked by this news, and they were slightly stunned. Even with the experience they possessed from their countless years of life, it was very difficult for them to imagine how something so inconceivable could have occurred.
“Since Chen Xi is alive, then what about all those Daolords who attacked him?” The Light Daolord couldn’t help but frown.
“Dead.” The Time Daolord just spat out a single word lightly. There was still a trace of a dazed expression on his face as he felt disbelief as well.
Dead?All of the others fell silent again when they heard this, and their hearts rose and fell violently.
They were clearly aware of what this meant. It meant that Chen Xi hadn’t just survived, he’d even killed 10 Daolords on his own!
Those were Daolords who’d grasped the energy of Destiny and possessed extraordinary strength!
But they’d actually been annihilated by a Ninth Star Region Lord like Chen Xi in one go!
Would anyone dare to believe it if news of this were to spread?
“Are you sure that kid hasn’t advanced into the Daolord Realm?” One of them couldn’t help but ask this question.
“He hasn’t.” The Time Daolord answered with certainty.
That was exactly what he couldn’t accept. It was already an unparalleled feat for a Ninth Star Region Lord to surmount a realm and do battle. Yet now, Chen Xi had killed 12 veteran Daolords in succession. Wasn’t that too terrifying?
The other Dao Servants had clearly realized that the problem was quite severe, and they had frowns on their faces while they pondered in silence.
“Everyone, even though that kid is heaven defying, he isn’t a barrier to our plans at all.” Suddenly, the Heavenly Wrath Daolord’s voice resounded by their ears.
“What do you mean?”
“The first ancestor of the Dao Defiants has awakened!” The Heavenly Wrath Daolord’s voice was low, and it faintly flowed with a wisp of a murderous aura.
As soon as these words were spoken, the spirits of the others were refreshed, and they revealed shocking glows in their eyes. It was a piece of great news that they’d been looking forward to, and it had instantly swept away the gloominess in their hearts.
“Prepare for battle. We’ll immediately eliminate the first ancestor of the Dao Defiants once he shows himself!” The 1st Dao Servant, Heavenly Wrath Daolord’s, gave the order, and it caused the eyes of the other Dao Servants to narrow and surge with killing intent.
Regardless of whether it was the 6th, 7th, and 8th Dao Servants who maintained a neutral position; or the 5th, 11th, and 13th Dao Servants who’d been constantly against working together with the Sovereign Sect, both parties hadn’t realized anything.
Even though they were guardians of Godrank Mountain as well, they were all-knowing.
It was even to the extent that even if it were amongst all 13 Dao Servants, only the Heavenly Wrath Daolord and the Time Daolord could project their consciousnesses into the Springs of Spin to observe everything occurring there.
At another campsite.
Daolord Xu Tuo who’d been meditating with his eyes closed until now seemed to have noticed something, and he suddenly opened his muddy eyes. In an instant, a dazzling divine glow could be faintly noticed within his gaze.
He stood up swiftly while a wisp of happiness suffused the corners of his extremely aged lips. “I sense the aura of the Dao Defiants’ first ancestor!”
Leng Xinghun and Dao Wushuang who were seated cross-legged nearby opened up simultaneously, and they looked at Xu Tuo.
“Does that mean Chen Xi is dead?” asked Leng Xinghun.
“He should be.” Xu Tuo spoke with a smile on his face. He seemed to have been waiting too long for this moment, and it felt like a heavy burden had been lifted from his shoulder while he revealed a complacent expression.
“It should be?” Dao Wushuang’s beautiful brows were knit together.
“It can’t be helped. I can only sense the aura of the Dao Defiants’ first ancestor but am unable to observe everything occurring within the Spring of Sin.” Xu Tuo spoke frankly. “However, since their first ancestor has awoken, then that kid, Chen Xi, has definitely suffered calamity. His chances of being alive are extremely tiny.
“That’s good, very good….” Leng Xinghun muttered while a wisp of a relaxed expression appeared on his icy cold face. When he recalled how both Dao Wushuang and him had no choice but to return from the Spring of Sin in order to avoid a head-on collision with Chen Xi, a wisp of complicated emotions that couldn’t be described surged into his heart.
“Now, you don’t have to fear him anymore.” Dao Wushuang took a sideways glance at Leng Xinghun while her voice carried a trace of faint ridicule.
Leng Xinghun’s face fell but he didn’t provide any explanation.
“Alright, prepare yourselves. The 13 Dao Servants will definitely be able to seize and take control of the Spirit of Samsara once they kill the first ancestor of the Dao Defiants. The two of you will take that treasure back to the Ancient God Domain and hand it over to the Sect Master.” Xu Tuo took a deep breath while his gaze burned with anticipation. “At that time, the entire world will belong to our Sovereign Sect….”
The Spirit of Samsara! Both Leng Xinghun and Dao Wushuang’s hearts shook at the same time.
All the Daolords here were overjoyed when they realized that their first ancestor had awakened from eternal slumber, but none of them dared to speed and seemed to be extremely afraid of disturbing this silent and solemn atmosphere.
When the excitement in their hearts had finally calmed down slightly, they wondered what their first ancestor’s words meant.
I’ve been waiting for you for a long time. It was just a few words spoken in a firm and flat tone. But if one thought about it carefully, one couldn’t help but guess whether the first ancestor knew that this Savior would come one day?
When they realized this, the hearts of all those Daolords jerked while a strand of complicated emotions appeared in their hearts.
It was exactly at this moment which they noticed that Chen Xi’s figure had flashed off and vanished into the deepest depths of the Springs.
Should we chase after him?
Many Daolords hesitated because their first ancestor had awakened from his slumber, so it seemed like there was no need for them to interfere in this matter.
But are we supposed to just watch helplessly as that Savior swaggers off towards the area where the First Ancestor rests?
“All of you can withdraw yourselves.” Right when all of them were still hesitant, a calm voice that resounded like a bell had swept once more through the world, and it instantly allowed them to heave sighs of relief and feel like a heavy burden had been lifted from their shoulders.
Truthfully speaking, they really had to think about it if they were asked to fight Chen Xi.
After all, they’d personally witnessed how terrifying Chen Xi was. Even the joint forces of 10 Daolords had perished at his hands, so it was obvious how heaven defying that Savior was.
All the Daolords immediately withdrew their consciousnesses and fell silent. In their opinions, since their first ancestor had awoken, then that Savior would definitely be unable to return alive. It was no different than going to give his life away.
The only thing they were worried about was whether those 13 Dao Servants who’d always been eying them with hostility and covetous intentions from the outside world would seize this opportunity to attack because the first ancestor had awoken!
Even though they’d withdrawn their consciousnesses, they were still vigilant and cautious.
Only Chi Qingying stood there while staring blankly into the distance, and his expression changed indeterminately. He seemed to be thinking of something yet also seemed like he’d encounter some sort of problem.
He had a feeling that Chen Xi would probably… not be killed by their first ancestor\
There was a deep abyss at the deepest depths of the Springs.
It was extremely huge and seemed capable of swallowing the entire sky!
It was extremely deep to the point all one could see was an expanse of darkness, and it seemed as if it was bottomless.
This was the forbidden area of the Dao Defiants. After their first ancestor had fallen into deep slumber since time immemorial, this place had become a forbidden area that not one dared to take even a step into.
In other words, Chen Xi could be considered to be the first cultivator to have arrived here throughout the countless years of the past.
As he stood before the abyss at this moment, he was tiny like an ant when compared to it, and it was a huge visual impact.
Cold gusts of wind howled through this boundless abyss. As one stood on the ground and looked down into the abyss below, it made one arouse an indescribable feeling of reverence.
The Dao Calamity Sword in Chen Xi’s hand trembled and emanated a clear howl.
After he killed 12 Daolords in succession, the Dao Calamity Sword had transformed completely. It was dark blue and suffused with an ancient aura. If one looked carefully, one could faintly notice strands of translucent and illusory light surging through it.
Unlike the scarlet red and bloodlike appearance it had before, the Dao Calamity Sword seemed to have become an ancient treasure that had experienced the passage of time and possessed a desolate aura.
At this moment, the Dao Calamity Sword was trembling silently as Chen Xi stood at the side of the abyss. It seemed to be excited to the point it could hardly restrain itself, and even Chen Xi couldn’t help but be slightly surprised by this.
However, he couldn’t be bothered about all of that.
The battle between him and those 10 Daolords could be said to have allowed Chen Xi to feel what it was like to escape death, and his heart and mind were still unable to calm down until now.
No one knew that he was really powerless and on the verge of death during that battle. Even if he’d fused with the might of the River Diagram, he was still just a Ninth Star Region Lord in the end.
Even if he could surmount a realm to do battle and could even kill veteran Daolords like Yan Zhen and Qi Ya, he was too inferior when facing the joint forces of 10 Daolords.
But he’d won in the end!
Moreover, after he killed those 10 Daolords and absorbed the powerful energy of Destiny that the Dao Calamity Sword had refined, his cultivation that was like a bottomless abyss had actually shown faint signs of being filled!
Yes, it wasn’t just the Dao Calamity Sword that had completed a transformation, even Chen Xi was just a thread away from advancing into the Daolord Realm!
However, how exactly had he killed those 10 Daolords?
Chen Xi was able to faintly guess the reason for all of that, but he was unable to say for sure. But he knew that the answer might be hidden at the bottom of the abyss before him!
“Savior, since you’ve come, then please come down so that we can meet.” A voice that reverberated like a bell suddenly resounded from the bottom of the dark abyss. It was flat and warm, and it didn’t contain any emotions.
Chen Xi’s eyes narrowed while he sensed the trembling and clear howls coming from the Dao Calamity Sword in his palm. In the end, he took a stride forward and leaped down.
