Chapter 776 Dividing Up The Spoils

Everyone was overjoyed because the Lightning Spirit formed from a bloodsoul was hidden within the Lightning Restricted Area, and it caused their Immortal Perceptions to be unable to detect it. It was precisely because of this that they were in such a passive situation.

It was even to the extent that they were going to take a risk and select someone as ‘bait’ to draw it out.

Chen Xi’s appearance was simply like a blessing from the heavens, and it caused the problem before them to be solved readily. So how could they not be excited?

Sun Donghua couldn’t help but ask. “Chen Xi, could the Divine Ability you spoke about be the Profundity Amplification Eyes?”

Chen Xi shook his head.

“Then it’s the Heaven Eye Connection?” asked another Earthly Immortal Realm expert.

Chen Xi still shook his head.

“Since it isn’t the Profundity Amplification Eyes, and not the Heaven Eye Connection, then could it be…” The other Earthly Immortal Realm experts pondered with frowns on their faces, and then they revealed a wisp of shock. “It wouldn’t be the Eye of Divine Truth, right?”

Chen Xi nodded. “Seniors are truly wise, I’ve cultivated the Eye of Divine Truth.”

Even if they’d guessed it, but they still couldn’t help but be shocked when they received confirmation from Chen Xi, and then they sized him up from top to bottom as if they’d just met him.

According to their knowledge, the Eye of Divine Truth was an existence similar to a taboo, and it had been obliterated in the annals of time to become a legend.

Now, it had actually appeared once more in the world and appeared in the possession of a young man. If news of this were to be spread, it would probably cause a mighty uproar!

Especially when the Light of Eradication contained within the Eye of Divine Truth was said to be able seal the Grand Dao and destroy all techniques, and its was able to be ranked in the top 30 of the Divine Ability Gold Rankings in the three dimensions, so its might was terrifying to an unbelievable extent.

The black bearded middle aged man was called Yu Feng, a 6th level Earthly Immortal Realm expert that had an experienced and steady disposition, and a wisp of excitement couldn’t help but suffuse his face as he roared with laughter. “Good! Good! Good!”

It was a mystery if he was praising Chen Xi, the Eye of Divine Truth, or the both of them.

The others stoked their beards and smiled as well, and they were as warm and amiable as they could be. Moreover, their benign gazes seemed as if they’d taken Chen Xi be the junior closest to them.

Chen Xi was completely dazed and slightly puzzled.

But in next to no time, he found out about everything from Yu Feng, and then he nodded and said, “How can I not obey senior’s instructions?”

Yu Feng and the others roared with laughter and admired Chen Xi even more. He was able to exert a combat strength comparable to the 3rd level of the Earthly Immortal Realm at the Nether Transformation Realm, and such a monstrous and outstanding young man had such a modest and polite nature. If they didn’t know that he was the disciple of Madman Liu, they would truly wish for nothing more than to seize Chen Xi and properly foster him as their disciple.

Bang! Bang! Bang!

Numerus thunderbolts smashed down. Chen Xi held the Talisman Armament in his hand while slashing it through the air to tear apart the layer after layer of lightning, causing only strands of lightning to be left behind before he allowed them to strike his body.

30m, 90m, 300m… The deeper he went into the Lightning Restricted Area, the stronger the might of the lightning, and its aura of destruction grew denser and denser. But, Chen Xi still seemed as if he was taking a stroll and walked forward steadily.

Chen Xi had already discussed it with Yu Feng and the others, and he would play the role of ‘bait.’ In this way, there was no need to worry of any danger arising because the Lighting Spirit would be utterly incapable of launching a sneak attack against him while under the detection of the Eye of Divine Truth. Moreover, once it made an appearance, it would be noticed by Chen Xi in the first possible moment.

Besides that, for the sake of drawing the Lightning Spirit out, Chen Xi still made a similar display as he had earlier. He walked forward while utilizing the might of the lightning to temper his body, and he used this to numb the attention of his opponent.

On the other hand, Yu Feng and the others enveloped Chen Xi with their Immortal Perception, and so long as anything unusual occurred, they would make a swift move with all their strength to crush the Lighting Spirit completely.

Moreover, they weren’t worried about the Lightning Spirit fleeing this time because with the assistance of Chen Xi’s Eye of Divine Truth, the tracks of the Lightning Spirit would be completely revealed before them.

“This little fellow’s cultivation in the Sword Dao has attained the level of Sword Light Dispersion, and he can be considered to be a grandmaster in the Sword Dao!” An Earthly Immortal Realm expert sighed with emotion and was extremely shocked.

“Yeah, the more we come into contact with this little fellow, the more shocking he is. We have to have a good conversation with Huating after we leave this place because it wouldn’t be a bad choice to allow this kid to inherit the position of Sect Master.”

“Indeed!”

Yu Feng and the others stayed vigilant towards the surroundings while observing Chen Xi, and when they saw his sword qi spread towards the surroundings and allowed him to easily stroll through the Lightning Restricted Area, all of them clicked their tongues with admiration.

Right at this moment, Chen Xi suddenly stopped moving.

This unusual action caused the expression of Yu Feng and the others to turn serious, and they went fully on alert while making preparations to attack with all their strength.

So that’s the Lightning Spirit… At this moment, Chen Xi was swinging his sword to slash apart the lightning while sizing up a fine strand of lightning that was 3km away out of the corners of his eyes.

When looked at with the naked eye, the strand of lightning was only 3cm long, fine like a gossamer, and was mixed amidst extremely violent lightning, so it was very easy for it to confuse one’s sights and cause it to be practically impossible to notice.

But under the gaze of the Eye of Divine Truth, that strand of lightning had a different appearance. It was an enormous figure that was an entire 90m tall, completely coiled by crimson red lightning, had warped features, crimson red eyes, and emitted a brutal and ruthless glow. At this moment, it was staring coldly at Chen Xi.

Swoosh!

When it saw Chen Xi stop moving, the strand of lightning that was fine like a threat silently entered amidst the lightning, and it instantly arrived 30m away from Chen Xi before silently observing its surroundings.

Chen Xi feigned ignorance and continued swinging his sword to slash the lightning apart, and he couldn’t help but be surprise in his heart. I never imagined that this vile creation would actually be so vigilant. It obviously possesses extremely high intelligence.

Hiss!

After waiting patiently for an entire 10 minutes, the Lightning Spirit couldn’t restrain itself any longer, and it transformed into a lightning thread that seemed like a wisp of flowing light before suddenly shooting explosively at Chen Xi at a speed similar to teleportation.

It was utterly soundless!

The might of this strike was mixed amidst the rumbling and reverberating thunderbolts, and it was the best natural concealment. Not to mention an ordinary person, even an Earthly Immortal Realm expert wouldn’t be able to notice it.

A few days ago, the Lightning Spirit had utilized this exact method to launch a sneak attack against an Earthly Immortal Realm expert, and if it wasn’t for Yu Feng and the others lending a hand in time, it might have succeeded.

But all of this was completely visible down to the slightest detail before the Eye of Divine Truth. So when the Lightning Spirit had just executed an attack, Chen Xi seemed as if he had eyes behind his back because the Talisman Armament swept backwards like the sweep of a dragon’s tail before a strand of Creation Sword Qi rumbled out.

Bang!

The sword qi collided with the fine strand of lightning, causing blazing radiance to erupt there, and then the aftershock spread out and caused the lightning in an area of 3km to be completely crushed and dispersed.

“Eh.” The wisp of lightning emitted an exclaim of shock, and then it noticed that the situation was bad and fled right away.

“Monster, don’t think of fleeing! Leave your live behind!” Right at this moment, an explosive shout reverberated in the heavens and the earth, and then a few mighty figures coiled in Immortal Energy charged out explosively from all directions and crushed down towards it.

At this instant, it seemed like numerous suns that were suffused with Immortal Energy had risen, and then emanated vast, blazing, and extremely magnificent light that instantly drowned out the heavens and the earth.

A few Earthly Immortal Realm experts had attacked with all their might in unison, and the shocking scene caused Chen Xi to be terrified and retreat repeatedly without end.

“Roar!” An extremely furious and terrified roar that was mixed with a growl of pain resounded out in the sky.

In the next moment, a 90m tall figure that was dyed in blood staggered out from the chaotic glow, and then it swiftly transformed into a wisp of lightning and intended to flee.

Swoosh!

Right at this moment, Chen Xi made a move. His figure flashed out while the Talisman Armament in his hand was like a rainbow that carried peerless energy of creation and deduction as it slashed down.

“You’re courting death!” The bolt of lightning roared ruthlessly and furiously, and it actually avoided the sword qi at the last ten thousandth of a second and shot explosively towards Chen Xi.

Chen Xi’s expression remained unchanged as he slashed his sword three times, causing creation to be born, the sun and moon to rise and fall, and it seemed like a lord of creation was creating and deducing the mysteries of everything in the world while brilliant sword qi enveloped the entire heavens and the earth.

Bang! Bang! Bang!

The bolt of lightning seemed as if it had entered into a swamp, and no matter how it struggled, it was unable to break through the interwoven light barrier formed from sword qi.

“Animal! Die!” Yu Feng seized this opportunity and roared loudly. His beard and hair fluttered while he seemed like a god that had descended into the mortal world, and it crushed down onto the bolt of lightning, causing it to tremble repeatedly and intend to flee towards other directions.

Unfortunately, the other directions had been completely blocked off by the other Earthly Immortal Realm experts, and they attacked in unison to strike out a myriad of terrifying Immortal Energy attacks that seemed like violent torrents that crushed down towards it.

Bang!

The bolt of lightning exploded like a firework and transformed into a 90m tall figure that collapsed on the ground like a dead dog. Its entire body was covered in injuries and was smoking. It had already suffered an extremely heavy injury.

Chen Xi put away the Talisman Armament when he saw this and heaved a sigh of relief in his heart. The strength of this Lightning Spirit was comparable to a cultivator at the 5th level of the Earthly Immortal Realm, and if it wasn’t for Yu Feng and the others restraining it, it would absolutely be impossible for him to be a match for it by himself.

Slap!

Yu Feng’s figure flashed to arrive before the enormous body of the Lightning Spirit, and then his fingers directly grabbed into the body of the Lightning Spirit like hooks before lightly raising his hand up, and he lifted up a grey and hazy crystal that was like a small hill.

This crystal was densely covered in strands of blood qi, was an entire 70 plus meters in height, over 12m in width, and it was shockingly an enormous piece of Chaotic Source Crystal.

Chen Xi couldn’t help but be stunned when he saw this. If all of this was utilized to refine my Talisman Armament, then its might would probably improve instantly by a great deal, right?

“Haha, with this Chaotic Source Crystal, why would we worry about being unable to refine the second Chaotic Magic Artifact?” Yu Feng roared with laughter and was extremely delighted.

During these past few tens of years, all of them had stayed here bitterly for the sake of this Chaotic Source Crystal. Now that they’d finally obtained it, their delight was utterly impossible to conceal.

“Chen Xi contributed greatly to our success this time. Senior Brother Yu Feng, why don’t we share this Chaotic Source Crystal with the little fellow as well?” An Earthly Immortal Realm expert spoke with delight, and then he seemed to have realized that he’d spoken wrongly and hurriedly shut his mouth.

The smiles on the faces of the others was restrained as well, and they seemed to be slightly troubled. If it was at an ordinary time, they would even be willing to share half with Chen Xi. But now, they might be unable to refine a Chaotic Magic Artifact is they lost a small portion, and in that way, they would have to wait for countless years before being able to gather enough…

“Reward him! He must be rewarded!” Yu Feng’s expression quickly returned to normal, and he said with a smile, “But Martial Nephew Chen Xi, we urgently require this Chaotic Source Crystal, so how about each of us reward you with a Quasi Immortal Artifact?”

A Quasi Immortal Artifact each would amount to five in total!

Such a reward would cause any cultivator to be envious, and even Chen Xi was slightly moved in his heart. He knew that Yu Feng’s actions were absolutely sincere and came from the heart, and Yu Feng wasn’t deceiving him and sending him off.

But in the end, Chen Xi still shook his head.

The expressions of Yu Feng and the other Earthly Immortal Realm experts froze while their brows knit together. Even five Quasi Immortal Artifacts are incapable of satisfying the appetite of this little fellow?
