The abyss was boundless, and it was covered in darkness.
Even with the strength of Chen Xi’s consciousness, he was actually unable to sense anything upon entering the mysterious abyss, and there was only emptiness, coldness, and desolation.
Only the Dao Calamity Sword in his hand was trembling even more violently. Waves of clear howls surged incessantly from it.
In his daze, Chen Xi’s mind droned and entered into a chaotic world. There was no heaven or earth, nor sun or moon, not even stars. It was an expanse of gray and haziness.
After that, a strand of golden radiance charged up from the grey world of chaos, and it tore through it. It was a green sapling that was extremely verdant, delicate, tender, and suffused with a golden glow.
It was clearly tiny and weak, but it instantly emanated a terrifying aura upon appearing here, and it was formidable to the point even the grey and hazy world was trembling. It was extremely terrifying.
Along with the passage of time, rays of multicolored divine radiance arose around the green sapling. A myriad of the profundities of the Grand Dao grew within them, and they seemed extremely miraculous as they illuminated the Chaos!
After an unknown period of time, rumbling resounded as the Chaos split apart, and then the green and verdant sapling started to sprout and gradually grow into a lotus flower.
Its branches were jade green, and it had nine petals. These petals were crimson red, blue, black, gold, white, green, violet…. Every single petal flowed with the dazzling and resplendent divine radiance, and they were like nine scorching suns of various different colors. They formed an otherworldly and miraculous lotus flower that looked down upon the gods, crushed the ages, and was dignified to the extreme.
After an unknown period of time, the divine lotus swayed and emanated a strand of divine light. It seemed like a sharp sword that shot into the sky and split the Chaos into two. At this instant, boundless clear energy rose into the sky to transform into the sky while boundless muddy energy sank down to transform into the ground.
After that, the divine lotus leaped out into the world, rooted itself in the ground, and held up the sky. Moreover, divine radiance surged throughout it, and it illuminated the world around it!
Its petals and leaves grew even purer and translucent while countless dense and odd markings appeared on them. They were like numerous individual kingdoms that were suffused with eternal radiance, and they were everlasting and magnificent.
Its roots tore the ground open, pierced through countless spatial barriers, and inserted itself into a dark and dim world. It was the Netherworld!
After an unknown period of time, this divine lotus that was rooted in the Netherworld and held up the sky suddenly shook, and then emanated a myriad of strands of divine radiance that sprayed down throughout the surroundings. The entire world was covered in dazzling and dreamlike light.
At this moment, the heavens and the earth rumbled while the tune of the Dao reverberated incessantly. Chaotic Energy surged out from around the divine lotus as it rose up from the ground, and then it ascended into the deepest depths of the boundless sky, strode through the myriad of Daos, and emanated boundless radiance.
Numerous rivers of stars descended while countless stars revolved around the divine lotus, and it emanated rumbling that could shake the universe.
Such a scene was simply inconceivable. It was like an eternal and supreme exalt was standing towering above the universe while the entire universe, the 3,000 large worlds, and the myriad of planes had all fallen into a motionless state, and it was like they were submitting before it.
However, at the very same time, a pair of eyes had suddenly opened up in the darkness within the deepest depths of the sky, and it swept towards the divine lotus.
After that, the rivers of stars collapsed, the stars exploded into pieces, the myriad of Daos shook, and the universe fell into disorder. The divine lotus actually suffered a heavy injury. Its branches were shattered, its stem dried up, and its nine petals of various colors had been crushed into powder by numerous strands of the terrifying might of the Heaven Dao.
Right at this moment, Chen Xi felt a wave of intense pain come from his sea of consciousness, and he was suddenly jolted awake from this shocking scene.
The Chaotic Divine Lotus….
Chen Xi was stunned. He wasn’t able to figure out why he would witness the process of the Chaotic Divine Lotus’s birth until death once more at a time like this.
The Dao Calamity Sword in his palm was still trembling and emanating clear howls while a mysterious glow effused out from its dark blue and ancient body.
After that, Chen Xi suddenly realized that he’d actually arrived at the bottom of the abyss.
It was a grey and hazy world that was enshrouded with the mist of chaos. It was dreamlike and illusory, and it felt like he was standing within the Chaos itself as he stood amidst it.
Suddenly, an unprecedentedly clear howl resounded from the Dao Calamity Sword in his grasp, and then it shook before it actually struggled free from his grasp. It swiftly transformed into a wisp of dark blue light that charged into the depths of the mist.
Chen Xi’s heart shook while his expression changed slightly. My strength is sufficient to surmount my realm of cultivation and kill Daolords, but I was actually unable to control the Dao Calamity Sword!
Chen Xi couldn’t be bothered to think too much about it. He moved practically instinctively and charged towards the direction that the Dao Calamity Sword had flown off towards.
At the same time, he had faintly determined that all the changes which the Dao Calamity Sword had undergone since he entered the Spring of Sin was absolutely not as simple as he’d thought!
Just think about it, if the Dao Calamity Sword didn’t possess the ability to counter sin and evil, absorb and refine that same sin and evil, and then condense them into energy that contained the aura of Destiny, then it would be utterly impossible for Chen Xi to possess such heaven defying strength.
All of this seemed to be very unusual. Especially when the Dao Calamity Sword had actually acted unusually when he arrived where the first ancestor of the Dao Defiants was resting, and it had actually struggled free of his control. That made all of this seem extremely unusual!
What does it intend to do?Kill the first ancestor of the Dao Defiants so that it can devour even more energy to undergo a transformation?Or perhaps it’s somehow related to the first ancestor of the Dao Defiants?
Chen Xi was uncertain.
A short while later, a strand of golden light suddenly appeared within the mist, and it seemed exceptionally striking in this gray and hazy world.
In next to no time, the wisp of golden light had split into nine when Chen Xi approached, and it transformed into crimson, green, blue, violet, white…. It had transformed into dazzling lights of nine different colors, and they were extremely resplendent and gorgeous.
The Dao Calamity Sword’s howl was coming from deep within the multicolored light.
Chen Xi couldn’t help but feel a slightly familiar feeling when he gazed upon this scene, but he didn’t have the time to think and just flashed forward at full speed.
In just a few breaths of time, the thick mist had been dispersed and his vision cleared up to reveal a lone mound of dirt standing before him.
That mound of dirt was just a little over a meter tall. It was shaped like an altar, and it seemed like a grave when looked at from afar.
However, there were numerous strands of dazzling divine radiance atop the mound of dirt. They sprayed towards the surroundings like a dreamlike and multicolored rain of light, and they were boundlessly divine and possessed a boundlessly lofty aura that made reverence arise in the hearts of others.
It was like that wasn’t just a mound of dirt but a mountain. Its roots were embedded in the ground while it held up the sky, and it was looking down upon all living things!
At this moment, the Dao Calamity Sword was flying about around the mound of dirt while howls resounded incessantly from it. It was bathing beneath the multicolored radiance, and it seemed exceptionally excited.
Chen X couldn’t help but be stunned when he witnessed this scene.
He’d originally thought that the bottom of the abyss would definitely be a dangerous place because the first ancestor of the Dao Defiants who’d been slumbering here since time immemorial had awakened.
Unexpectedly, he saw such a strange scene, and it almost made him wonder if he’d come to the wrong place.
“Savior, I never expected that we would actually be able to meet after countless years of time. It’s truly rare indeed.” That voice which resounded like a bell appeared once more, but it wasn’t flat and emotionless anymore. It carried a wisp of deep emotion.
Chen Xi was visibly moved because that voice had come from the mound of dirt that was covered by the nine colored divine radiances!
Could the first ancestor of the Dao Defiants be under that?
As if the first ancestor had noticed Chen Xi’s thoughts, the multicolored rays of dazzling and dreamlike radiance shook before withdrawing like tidewater to reveal the true appearance of that mound of dirt.
The mount of dirt was still very normal, and it was even completely inconspicuous. However, a gorgeous lotus flower that was filled with a divine aura was swaying at the top of it!
The stem of it was verdant and glistening like jade, its leaves were completely round and carried the aura of perfection in the Grand Dao, and it had a total of nine petals. Every single petal was densely covered in mysterious markings, and they each emanated a different colored glow of divinity.
As soon as Chen Xi saw this lotus flower, he instantly seemed as if he’d been struck by lightning, and his pupils dilated. The Chaotic Divine Lotus!?
In an instant, those grand scenes he witnessed upon entering the abyss couldn’t help but appear once more in Chen Xi’s mind.
When he compared those scenes with the divine lotus before him, they weren’t just similar, they were clearly the same!
Chen Xi took a deep breath and looked carefully once more. Sure enough, he noticed that while this divine lotus was only a meter tall, its aura and might were both divine and terrifying to the extreme, and it was exactly similar to what he’d sensed from the Chaotic Divine Lotus in those scenes he’d witnessed.
How could Chen XI have imagined that instead of seeing the first ancestor of the Dao Defiants at the bottom of this abyss in the deepest depths of the Springs which the Dao Defiants considered a forbidden area, he met the Chaotic Divine Lotus who was an existence that only existed in legends?
This was simply too inconceivable!
It caused even Chen Xi to feel slightly dazed.
All those years ago when he entered the Grand Reverie to seek the Grand Dao. He’d joined the Nine Radiance Sword Sect. Since then, he’d formed a trace of an unbreakable bond with this legendary Chaotic Divine Lotus.
When he was there, he’d studied and comprehended the Allheaven Truth which Dao Lotus had passed down to him, passed through numerous levels in the sword cave, and finally met the evil and unrestrained Evil Lotus….
In the end, he obtained the ancestral treasure of the Nine Radiance Sword Sect, the Dao Calamity Sword!
It was from that moment onward that Chen Xi found out both the Allheaven Truth and the Dao Calamity Sword had been left behind by the founding ancestor of the sect.
That founding ancestor was the Chaotic Divine Lotus!
It was even to the extent that both Dao Lotus and Evil Lotus had been formed from a strand of the Chaotic Divine Lotus’s will after it had perished!
Later on, Chen XI even found out that when the Chaotic Divine Lotus had ascended to the peak of the Grand Dao and was about to step foot onto the end of the Ultimate Path, it had been schemed against by the Sovereign Sect’s master, failed short of success, and perished.
Under such circumstances, it was obvious how shocking it would be when such an extraordinary figure who should have died according to the legends had actually appeared right before him.
“Isn’t it surprising?” That voice resounded again.
Chen Xi nodded instinctively, and then he recovered from his disorderly thoughts.
Only now did he notice that the Chaotic Divine Lotus had transformed into a slender figure that sat casually on the mound of dirt. That figure’s body was enshrouded by nine colored divine radiance that was simply dreamlike, and that figure was sizing him up with a pair of clear and seemingly illusory eyes.
Was the Chaotic Divine Lotus male or female?
Perhaps no one in the world could say for sure.
But at this moment, Chen Xi saw the Chaotic Divine Lotus transform into the form of a woman!
