Chapter 848 – Footsteps That Shook The Skies

The angle this palm strike came from was extremely cunning, and it carried a strange energy that actually caused one’s heart to arouse scenes of terror, collapse, damnation, and so on and so forth. It was extremely terrifying and pointed straight to the heart!

If it wasn’t for Chen Xi’s Dao Heart having been tempered to the point of being extremely tough since a long time ago, and he possessed a shocking will to fight, merely these scenes would be impossible to be eliminated, causing him to suffer the strike of this palm in the end.


The winds emanated by the palm were like blades as it tore through the sky like a scissors cutting through a piece of cloth. Wenren Ye was in midair, yet the might of her palm had extremely accurately slashed towards Chen Xi’s throat.

The sound of the palm tearing through the sky wasn’t really shocking when heard by everyone in the surroundings of the arena, but when it entered into Chen Xi’s ears, it was filled with a howl that tore at his eardrums. The attack hadn’t approached his body yet the howl had already arrived, and it was chilly and sharp like a blade as it pierced Chen Xi’s skin to the point it hurt.

Wenren Ye’s cultivation was extremely powerful and deep, ghastly and fierce, and it was far superior than Nan Xiuchong and the others. So after she suddenly ascended the arena and executed a swift and powerful assault, Chen Xi’s neck would  be slit by her palm if he didn’t stop his attack and dodge to the side.


The Wings of Disruption flashed behind Chen Xi. His figure twisted without the slightest sign as he barely avoided this strike, and then he unleashed a backhanded strike that collided with Wenren Ye’s right palm.


The sword and palm collided fiercely, and it emitted a resonant ring like that of a huge bell.

Shockingly, Wenren Ye’s palm that looked to be fine, slender, jade white, and tender was actually completely unharmed after colliding with the extremely sharp Talisman Armament!

Both sides didn’t suffer any injuries in this collision, but Wenren Ye’s disturbance allowed Nan Xiuchong to instantly reclaim his life, and it caused Chen Xi’s expression to be slightly gloomy.

He stared at Wenren Ye and said coldly, “You’re even interfering in a life and death battle that was agreed upon? Do you have any shame?”

Wenren Ye stood proudly in the battlefield with a haughty expression, and the space between her brows was filled with unapproachable indifference as she said indifferently, “I did it for your own good. The consequences of harming someone from the Immortal Dimension isn’t something you can endure.”

When she spoke up to here, she raised her eyes to glance at Chen Xi with a gaze filled with pity. “Not to mention if Nan Xiuchong utilizes the trump card in his possession, do you think you can resist it? If we consider it carefully, I’ve even saved your life.”

Chen Xi started laughing from extreme rage. “Since it’s a battle of life and death, is the outcome of killing or being killed something that you can interfere in?”

Wenren Ye frowned, and her face was cold like ice as she said, “My patience is limited. I’ve already given you enough face by wasting my breath with an ant like you! Don’t challenge my limits!”

Chen Xi’s expression suddenly became calm as he said, “Since it’s like that, then you’ll replace him to continue the battle!”

As he spoke, Chen Xi strode forward before Wenren Ye could reply, and he’d already arrived before her as the Talisman Armament appeared like a shocking stream that similarly struck towards her throat.

That strike of Wenren Ye’s from before absolutely carried killing intent, and if it wasn’t for him utilizing the Eye of Divine Truth to deal with the phenomena created by the strike and instantly sobering up, he would have almost been struck at a fatal point.

At this moment, she assumed a dignified and honorable air while arguing irrationally caused Chen Xi to be truly infuriated, and killing intent arose in his heart.

“Since you’re courting death, then I can only fulfil your wish.” A wisp of a cold smile suffused the corners of Wenren Ye’s mouth while her expression became even colder and indifferent, and then a strand of killing intent that shook the skies surged out from her like an immortal sword that shot out to shatter the sky.


Her jade white hand stretched out and swiped out in an extremely ordinary manner to strike Chen Xi’s Talisman Armament back, and then her sleeve fluttered while the fingers on her right hand closed together to form a seal that seemed like a dragon and a tiger before she slapped it down at Chen Xi’s chest.


A roar that was like the furious howl of a Fiendgod sounded out while the entire seal blazed like a scorching sun, and it emanated boundless auras of the Dao. It shook the entire sky to the point of trembling violently before collapsing inch by inch!

Dragon Tiger Daosky Seal!

Nan Xiuchong, Chu Xiao, and the others recognized this cultivation technique, and their figures stiffened because they never imagined that Wenren Ye would utilize such a killer move as soon as the battle began.

This was one of the ultimate techniques of the Wenren Clan that was an ancient sect in the Immortal Dimension, and it was a true formidable Immortal Art. If it was executed with the energy of the Laws, then its might would be sufficient to destroy the stars, crush the moon, and obliterate all evil!

Even though Wenren Ye hadn’t comprehended and grasped the Laws, its might was still extremely great when she executed it with the Dao Insights she possessed, and it was far from something the peak-grade Dao Arts of the Mortal Dimension could compare to.

This was the resources and reserves of a descendant from the Immortal Dimension. Everything they’d cultivated had exceeded the scope of the Mortal Dimension since a long time ago, and they’d attained a height that belonged to the Immortal Dimension. Even though it was limited by their cultivations, it was sufficient to allow them to look down upon the Mortal Dimension.

Chen Xi’s eyes narrowed while the essence, energy, and spirit in his entire body started seething, and then the Talisman Armament spun around to slash out a brilliant sword qi. The stars, sun, and moon rose and fell within the sword qi while it deducted and created boundless profundities.


Stomp! Stomp! Stomp!

Both of their figures retreated by over 100m in distance.

Chen Xi’s entire body shook before he recovered to normal, and his eyes emanated bolts of cold lightning while they seemed bright and awe-inspiring.

On the other hand, Wenren Ye’s clothes shook violently and fluttered about like flower petals in full bloom. Moreover, her beautiful face became even more indifferent while her killing intent seemed material.

Both of them were actually on par in this collision.

The spectators in the surroundings were shocked by this scene, and they had a deeper feeling that Chen Xi wasn’t simple because he was actually able to accomplish this with a cultivation in the Nether Transformation Realm. If news of this were to spread, it would probably shock the entire 3,000 worlds!After all, his opponent was the descendant of a great figure that came from the Immortal Dimension.

“Very good. Only by killing a little ant like you would I have a sense of accomplishment.” Wenren Ye spoke coldly and indifferently. Actually, she was rather surprised in her heart as well. Others might not know, but she knew her own strength very clearly.

Her cultivation was at the 5th level of the Earthly Immortal Realm, and coupled with the formidable Immortal Arts she cultivated, not to mention a cultivator at the Nether Transformation Realm, even a cultivator with a similar cultivation as hers would find it almost impossible to resist this attack head-on.

But Chen Xi had achieved this, and this caused her to have no choice but to become careful.

“To me, being able to kill someone from the Immortal Dimension today will give me an even greater sense of accomplishment.” Chen Xi was calm and composed as he spoke indifferently.

It was a waste of breath to speak too much during a disagreement.

In the next moment, both of them seemed to have tacit understanding and attacked at the same time, and they entered into battle once again.


Blazing lights surged like the tide on the arena, space shook, explosive rumbling shook the sky, and they fought to the point the heavens and the earth were cast beneath a shadow. The entire surroundings were filled with a shocking scene of destruction, chaos, and doom.

Chen Xi’s tall figure seemed to have transformed into an ocean of talisman markings, and he whistled through the sky imposingly while peerless Creation Sword Qi struck out both horizontally and vertically. He fought like an emperor of the sword that had descended into the world, and he was peerlessly skilled!

On the other hand, Wenren Ye was like a flower that swayed in a chilly breeze, and she moved in an agile and graceful manner. Every single move she made caused various extremely profound Immortal Arts to spray out, and her calm imposing aura was filled with a murderous air.

If it wasn’t for the energy of the arena being supported by the Grand Deduction Tower, it would have probably been destroyed instantaneously before the battle affected the entire Emerald Cloud Restaurant and even the entire Eastern Emperor County!

After all, a battle at such a level was capable of incinerating oceans and throwing the world into chaos. Not to mention a city, even a kingdom would be at danger of obliteration.

Everyone in the surroundings of the combat arena forgot to breathe while their minds shook violently from the scene before them, and they were unable to maintain their calm.

Nan Xiuchong, Chu Xiao, Cao He, and the others finally understood why a Mysterious Immortal like Liang Bing would favor and think so highly of Chen Xi, because such a freak would probably draw over countless great powers to rope him in even in the Immortal Dimension.

After all, it was rare even in the Immortal Dimension for someone to be able to go against an Earthly Immortal Realm expert at the Nether Transformation Realm.

On the other hand, Feng Luyang’s expression was unsightly to the extreme and changed indeterminately. He didn’t dare believe that the tiny ant he felt extremely disdain towards just moments ago actually possessed such a formidable strength, and it was even much more formidable than his own!

He finally understood why Chen Xi’s attitude would be so unyielding when he put forward numerous conditions because who wouldn’t be unyielding when one possessed such strength?

“Hmph! It doesn’t matter how formidable his individual strength is. If I really fucking fight desperately, then even a Heavenly Immortal can’t stop me!” Feng Luyang roared fiercely in his heart.

However, even though he consoled himself like this, when he saw Chen Xi fighting Wenren Ye equally, he still couldn’t help but feel frustrated in his heart. He knew very clearly in his heart that if it wasn’t for him being from the Immortal Dimension and having an enormous power to rely on, he was indeed slightly inferior to Chen Xi…

“Slash!” A cold shout suddenly sounded out as Chen Xi’s figure shot out like a dragon while his imposing aura rose explosively, and he executed an extraordinary sword qi that crushed down at Wenren Ye.

Wenren Ye’s expression instantly turned grim.

Up until this point in the battle, even though she hadn’t fought with her life on the line, she’d forgotten something. This was the Talisman Dimension that didn’t even possess a shred of spirit energy, let alone Immortal Energy.

The most damnable thing was that more than half of her strength had already been exhausted, and she was just about to replenish it with an Immortal Pill when Chen Xi seized this gap in her actions to pursue her furiously, causing her to have no chance to replenish her strength at all!

How could this fellow’s cultivation be so thick? It seems as if it’s unending, and he’s always in a peak state. He actually doesn’t show any signs of consumption?

Even though she was surprised and bewildered in her heart, her movements weren’t slow at all, and her figure was like a shuttle as she suddenly dodged.

A faint cold smile appeared on the corners of Chen Xi’s mouth, and he attacked without holding back in the slightest. It was like a vast river that surged with waves as sword strike after sword strike slashed out before the first had dissipated, and he utterly didn’t give her the slightest chance to catch her breath.

Wenren Ye’s strength was extremely formidable, and she was the most formidable 5th level Earthly Immortal Realm expert he’d seen. Most importantly, she hadn’t utilized any formidable trump cards up until now.

This caused him to have no choice but to restrain himself and not utilize his clone.

Fortunately, it was impossible for her to have imagined that the Dark Parasol Sapling would be residing within his Blackhole World, and it was capable of ceaselessly replenishing his True Essence. This was precisely the key to the turnaround in the situation at this moment.

Wenren Ye’s expression was unsightly as her figure dodged repeatedly, and her heart gradually became restless. She knew that if this were to continue, then her strength would surely be exhausted completely.

“You’re courting death! Since it’s like this, then I’ll let you witness the gap between the Mortal Dimension and the Immortal Dimension!” After she made this decision, Wenren Ye’s expression suddenly became cold and indifferent to the extreme while the imposing aura in her entire body became icy cold and murderous. Her beautiful hair fluttered while her gaze was like bolts of lightning, and she seemed to want to utilize her true trump card.

Chen Xi’s eyes narrowed as he noticed an icy cold feeling suddenly surge into his heart while an extremely strong feeling of danger provoked him to the point all his hairs stood on end, and he felt a chill run down his spine.

Chen Xi stopped moving abruptly and was about to utilize his clone.

But right at this moment, a wave of clear and resounding footsteps sounded out abruptly in midair, and it was like metal striking on a smooth surface. It came from afar and approached, causing it to rise in loudness.

In merely an instant, the strange footsteps were already reverberating through the entire terrace.
