Chapter 868 – Imagination Running Wild


A wisp of silver and brilliant flowing light tore through the sky, and in the next instant, it charged into the boundless starry universe and vanished.

Liang Bing controlled the Silverlight Shuttle while she scanned the star atlas in her hand, and she followed along a fixed pathway as she carried Chen Xi towards the Dark Reverie.

A star atlas was extremely precious because it indicated all the paths through the starry skies in the universe between the 3,000 worlds, so its value was extremely shocking, and it was even a priceless treasure.

Because even in the Immortal Dimension, ordinary figures were unable to possess one, and even if they were able to possess one, it would usually indicate the paths that led to a few or a few tens of worlds and was extremely incomplete.

On the other hand, the star atlas Li Yang gave Liang Bing was a complete star atlas. Not only did it indicate the path to the 3,000 worlds, it even indicated the path to some strange and rare planes and mysterious areas. Those areas were places that people of the Immortal Dimension rarely stepped foot in.

According to Liang Bing’s estimation, merely the value of this star atlas in her possession was capable of causing countless immortals to go mad!

After all, possessing such a star atlas meant that one possessed the path to countless areas that could be explored and innumerable wealth that could be unearthed. This carried matchless allure to any immortal or any great power.

Of course, only existences at the Heavenly Immortal Realm or above were capable of moving freely in the universe, and ordinary cultivators were utterly incapable of accomplishing this.

A’Li…handed this over so easily to me?

When she recalled Li Yang’s indifferent appearance when Li Yang casually tossed this star atlas to her, Liang Bing couldn’t help but be slightly dazed and felt disbelief in her heart.

She was very sure that if she returned to the Liang Clan in the Immortal Dimension, merely this star atlas was entirely capable of allowing her to easily obtain countless support. Even if it was those seniors that had always been unable to bear the sight of her, they would still shut their mouths obediently. In this way, she would have taken a large stride towards wielding the highest authority in her clan!

When she thought up to here, Liang Bing couldn’t help but sigh in her heart, and her thoughts were complicated as she glanced at Chen Xi with a trace of envy and said in her heart, I wonder how this fellow joined Oracle Mountain. This fortune is truly heaven defying…

Chen Xi turned around and looked over as well when he noticed Liang Bing’s gaze.

Liang Bing’s figure was ramrod straight and slender while her soft and wavy golden hair was coiled into a bun behind her head, revealing her angular and beautiful face to be revealed. Her forehead was clear and white, her nose was fine and high, and her red lips were plump and sexy, causing her beauty to be peerless and natural.

Her dressing was as usual. She wore a tight and graceful top that caused her plumpness to be drawn out with alluring curves, and she even faintly revealed a wisp of dazzling snow white at her chest. On the other hand, she wore a short skirt that revealed a pair of thighs that were perfect and white like ivory, and it was extremely hot. Moreover, even the shoes she wore were sharp and shiny like an awl.

All in all, no matter if it was face, figure, or clothes, this beautiful and icy cold woman before him was alluring and hot to the extreme. So even though Chen Xi was familiar with her since a long time ago, he felt his breath taken away every time he looked at her.

If someone is able to marry her, then merely keeping her at home as ‘decoration’ would be rather pleasing to the eye… Chen Xi sighed with emotion in his heart.

Liang Bing was stared at by Chen Xi to the point her entire body felt uncomfortable, and she thought in her heart. Could it be that this fellow really has ill intentions towards me?

It was very normal for her to think like this because Li Yang had spoken extremely dubious and teasing words in front of her and Chen Xi on more than one occasion, and it caused her to be unable to help but be slightly suspicious.

She even thought about whether she should fiercely bash up Chen Xi or choose to disregard Chen Xi if Chen Xi really had any thoughts towards her.

If I disregard him, then would he think that I’m tacitly approving?

Various strange thoughts surged into her mind, causing even Liang Bing herself to be shocked by herself. But her expression remained icy cold and calm, and she pretended to be composed as she turned around and said, “Do you need something?”

“Oh, no.” Chen Xi withdrew his gaze and said with a smile, “I’m just thinking whether accompanying me to the Dark Reverie would delay a lot of things in the Talisman Dimension.”

“The Grand Deduction Tower is already repaired, so a major issue won’t arise in a short period of time.” Liang Bing replied while she became vigilant in her heart. Why would this fellow suddenly show concern towards me?

Chen Xi wasn’t aware of the various thoughts in Liang Bing’s mind, and he said while seeming to be lost in thought, “Haha, it’s best if it’s like that. The Dark Reverie is the large world that’s the closest to the Immortal Dimension, and you’ve probably not gone there before. I can bring you along to see it after we’ve arrived.”

Liang Bing’s heart jerked. He intends to use this to ask me out on a date?

She couldn’t help but feel a wave of embarrassment when she thought up to here, and then she raised her beautiful eyes to glance coldly at Chen Xi while she thought in her heart. We’ve only known each other for such a short period of time, yet he dares to casually ask me on a date. He’s really audacious to the extreme for the sake of his lust!

This was like the saying; a casual remark sounds significant to a suspicious listener.

Once a thought takes root in one’s heart, one’s thoughts running wild after hearing some things people say couldn’t be avoided… Obviously, Liang Bing’s current state was one where her thoughts ran wild when it was related to Chen Xi. Moreover, it showed the tendency of going to the limit.

Chen Xi couldn’t help but feel that it was slightly odd when Liang Bing stared at him. Even though he was unable to guess the twist and turns that occurred in her heart, he was still able to faintly sense that Liang Bing seemed to be slightly unusual today…

In next to no time, he tossed this thought to the back of his head and asked. “How long more will it take to arrive in the Dark Reverie?”

Liang Bing’s sexy red lips couldn’t help but twitch imperceptibly when she heard this, and a wisp of powerlessness arose in her heart. He’s even asking how long it will take? Could it be that this fellow is so anxious to go on a date with me?

“A month.” She replied irritably, and her usual composed and mighty bearing of a queen was gone.

“So slow?” Chen Xi was astounded. He remembered that when his Senior Sister Li Yang brought him to the Talisman Dimension, the amount of time she expended was only two days.

He’s even complaining about it being slow?

Is this fellow already anxious to the point of going crazy?

Liang Bing’s eyelids twitched, and she was on the verge of going berserk. She truly wished for nothing more than to raise her sharp show and fiercely trample on this bastard to help her calm down the anger in her heart…

She took a deep breath and forcefully restrained the embarrassment and rage in her heart before she said emotionlessly, “This is already the limit of the Silverlight Shuttle.”

Chen Xi glanced at Liang Bing with surprise, and he said with concern, “Your expression is slightly abnormal. Are you not well?”

Not well?

Why wouldn’t I be well?

He’s even pretending to be concerned about me! He’s truly detestable!

Liang Bing was really disgusted, and she restrained herself repeatedly for a long time before she said helplessly, “It’s fine so long as I agree to accompany you to see the Dark Reverie, right?”

Chen Xi was stunned, and then he shook his head and said, “It’s only to go around and experience it. If you’re not interested, it wouldn’t be late to talk about it later.”

This time, Liang Bing was completely speechless, and she couldn’t help but desire to shout in her heart. My god! Is there really such a person in the world!? He’s trying to put on an act after benefiting? Could it be that I have to kneel down and beg him to go on a date with me!?

At this moment, she even had the heart to kill!

After all, as a Mysterious Immortal Realm expert and the inheritor of the Liang Clan in the Talisman Dimension, she’d utilized an imposing and might appearance to deal with everything all along her way until now, and she’d never wronged herself as she’d done today…

Chen Xi acutely noticed that Liang Bing’s mood seemed to be extremely horrible, and he extremely sensibly chose to keep quiet.

In next to no time, he stopped thinking and started comprehending the Immeasurable Virtue technique, and his expression was concentrated while he seemed to be happy and content with himself.

Heart Qi, Heart Core, Heart Soul, and Heart Infant. These were the four great realms of Heart Energy. According to Li Yang’s guidance, so long as his Heart Energy obtained the Heart Soul realm, it would be sufficient to deal with the detection of the Heaven Dao and allow him to charge into the Earthly Immortal Realm without worrying about being taken as a variant and suffering the annihilation of the divine lightning of judgment.

When he left the 10th level of the Grand Deduction Tower, Chen Xi had noticed that his Virtue Energy had already attained a terrifying number of 1.36 million stars, whereas his Heart Core cultivation had undergone a shocking change.

It seemed as if a life was being developed, strengthening, and growing within the Heart Core, and it emanated exuberant vitality that surged to the extreme, causing a rhythm that sounded like the drumming of Fiendgods.

Most shocking of it all was that a faint figure had appeared above the Heart Core that was like a cocoon, and it was ethereal, illusory, and faintly visible. Chen Xi could only discern that it was a small person based on its outline, and it was sitting cross-legged with its eyes closed in meditation above the Heart Core.

Chen Xi knew that it was the soul of his heart! When the Heart Soul’s figure was condensed to a material form, his Heart Energy would advance from the Heart Core realm to the Heart Soul realm.

But this process was impossible to accomplish solely by accumulating Virtue Energy, and it required the assistance of a cultivation technique. Otherwise, with the Virtue Energy Chen Xi had accumulated, he would have advanced to the Heart Soul realm a long time ago.

Simply speaking, the Virtue Energy was like water, whereas Heart Energy was like a pool.  The volume of the pool was fixed, so too much water would only cause it to overflow, and the water would be utterly unable to be of use.

On the other hand, the method of cultivating Heart Energy was methods of expanding and deepening the pool. Only in this way would it be able to accumulate even more water and bring forth a greater effect.

But cultivation techniques related to Heart Energy were extremely rare in the three dimensions, and it was practically impossible to find in the Mortal Dimension. Even if it was in the Immortal Dimension, such a cultivation technique was a rare and precious treasure that could only be chanced upon by luck.

This caused someone that was able to attain the Heart Soul realm in the Mortal Dimension to be one in a billion!

On the other hand, the Immeasurable Virtue technique Chen Xi obtained from the 10th level of the Grand Deduction Tower was a cultivation technique like this. It utilized Virtue as its foundation to cultivate Heart Energy, and its value was so great that it was capable of causing the gods in the three dimensions to covet it.

When she saw Chen Xi keep silent and fall into deep contemplation, the nearby Liang Bing couldn’t help but heave a sigh of relief. She was truly worried that Chen Xi wouldn’t stop and put forward some other presumptuous requests.

One month later, a ray of light that was bright silver like chilly starlight suddenly tore through the sky and entered the Dark Reverie.

The familiar aura of the Heaven Dao, familiar mountains, rivers, scenery, and spirit energy of the heaven and the earth… After being separated for over a year, he’d finally returned at this moment, causing Chen Xi to be unable to help but feel as if generations had passed.

“I’ve finally returned.” He couldn’t help but sigh with emotion. Instantly, he thought of too many things. He thought of the Nine Radiance Sword Sect, Ling Bai, Bai Kui, Mu Kui, his seniors, the clansmen of the Ninth Hell Tribe…

Of course, there was also Qing Xiuyi and Bing Shitian!
