Chapter 975 – Destiny

In the next moment, Ren Changfeng charged into the depths of the Sea of Misery with the monk.

With Chen Xi’s Eye of Divine Truth, he was only able to discern that the two of them were in pursuit beneath the Sea of Misery, and they quickly charged into the extreme depths of the Sea of Misery.

When the distance between them arrived at 300km, the Eye of Divine Truth was unable to discern anything any longer.

It couldn’t be helped, Chen Xi’s main body’s cultivation in body refinement was too low, and the limits of the scope that the Eye of Divine Truth could detect was merely 300km.

“Lord Ren will be fine, right?” Tang Yun carefully put away the damaged bronze ring before he spoke carefully.

Wang Yan shook his head to display that he didn’t know, and his expression was stiff and reserved as usual.

“Oh, let’s just wait. That vile spirit is surely not a match for Lord Ren.” Tang Yun pondered deeply for a moment before he spoke with a smile on his face.

Both of them waited carefully while holding their bow and blade and maintaining combat readiness.

“Should we make a move and seize that Calamity Ward Green Lantern and the Void Raid Ring?” In the distance, Bei Ling spoke via voice transmission in a low voice. Her expression was cold while her eyes faintly revealed a wisp of eagerness.

“Forget it. We travelled together at any rate. If you lack magic treasures, I have quite a few in my possession.” Chen Xi shook his head as he spoke via voice transmission.

Bei Ling couldn’t help but roll her eyes. “Who would want a magic treasure from you? I just feel that the attitude of those two fellows is truly too terrible, so who else would I plunder but them?”

Chen Xi couldn’t help but be amused. No matter how high their cultivations get, a woman’s shortcoming of being vengeful will never change.

Of course, he actually felt rather comfortable in his heart. After all, Bei Ling seemed to be icy cold, yet she was actually very sensitive and had always cared about his feelings.

Suddenly, the sea water rumbled as a figure charged out. Surprisingly, it was Ren Changfeng.

However, at this moment, his clothes were tainted with blood while his countenance was ghastly pale, and his aura was weak. Only his eyes were filled with excitement and delight.

As soon as he charged out from the surface of the sea, he shook a bamboo slip in his hand while roaring with laughter. “Haha! Look what this is! The Primeval Spirit Temple’s Calamity Ward Sutra! HAHAHA!!” His laughter shook the heavens and revealed boundless happiness.

However, in the next moment, he suddenly started coughing up blood repeatedly while his figure swayed and almost fell into the Sea of Misery. Obviously, he’d suffered a heavy injury from the earlier battle.

Ren Changfeng took a deep breath to calm the vital energy in his body, and then he shouted loudly. “Tang Yun, quickly hand over the Calamity Ward Green Lantern to me. Let me properly inspect this treasure.”

“Alright, Lord Ren.” Tang Yun chuckled as he replied. But he didn’t hand over the Calamity Ward Green Lantern and directly drew his longbow instead, causing an arrow to tear through the sky and directly penetrate the neck of Wang Yan who stood before him!

This strike was extremely ruthless and took everyone by surprise. No one had imagined that he would actually launch a surprise attack against his own companion, and not to mention Wang Yan was only three steps away from him, so a sudden surprise attack was utterly impossible to dodge in time, causing Wang Yan to perish on the spot.


Blood sprayed as the reserved Wang Yan, a peak sovereign at the Earthly Immortal Realm was killed just like this from behind by his own companion.

The atmosphere instantly froze when everyone saw this scene.

Even Bei Ling and Chen Xi felt cold in their hearts because none of them had imagined that Yang Yun who was always smiling would actually commit such a despicable and ruthless deed in the blink of an eye.

“Tang Yun, you…” Ren Changfeng was furious, and he was angered to the point his chest rose and fell indeterminately. When he saw this scene, how could he not understand that this bastard intended to betray him and take possession of the treasures.

“Lord Ren, I’m sorry. After you repeatedly refused to be a reference for me, Tang Yun, I decided that I would surely surpass you in my lifetime and trample on you beneath my feet!” Tang Yun started laughing, and his laughter revealed extremely icy coldness and a wisp of resentment. “Don’t blame me for being merciless. I want to improve and become a great figure of the Netherdark Hall as well. I want to stop acting subserviently, stop flattering, and stop being ordered about by others. Do you know how detestable it feels to me?!”


As he spoke, he’d drawn the bowstring and placed an arrow on it before another arrow tore through the sky once more.

“Watch out!” Chen Xi’s eyes focused as he reminded.

His voice had just sounded out when a strand of blood sprayed out. Ren Changfeng held his left chest while a fist sized bloody hole had actually been shot open there!

With his cultivation at the Heavenly Immortal Realm, he was still unable to block this arrow, and this obviously displayed exactly how severe the heavy injury he suffered from the earlier battle with the vile spirit was.

Perhaps it was precisely because of this that Tang Yun dared to forsake honor for the sake of benefit and resolutely choose to betray Ren Changfeng.

“I never expected that the fellow I always relied on as my right hand would actually betray me! All those years ago, I really shouldn’t have saved a piece of trash like you that begged on the streets!” Ren Changfeng’s expression was livid while his eyes almost lit up in flames. He turned around to look at Chen Xi and Bei Ling while seeming to intend to seek help from them, yet he seemed to have thought of something and shook his head in the end.

Even Tang Yun has betrayed me, let alone these two outsiders?

After they saw me heavily injured, they’ve probably aroused the intention to kill me and seized the treasures as well, right?

I never imagined that the precious treasure I, Ren Changfeng, planned and prepared for one hundred years to obtain would actually benefit another in the end, and I’ll even lose my life in the process…

Ren Changfeng was dejected and slightly dispirited.

Tang Yun suddenly started roaring with laughter. “HAHAHA! What’s the point in saying all of that? Unfortunately, I’m about to kill a Heavenly Immortal today, yet I can’t tell anyone. It’s truly a pity.”

Swoosh! Swoosh! Swoosh!

The bowstring shook like the rumbling of a thunderstorm as numerous dim gold colored arrows carried terrifying penetrative force as they tore space apart and enveloped down towards Ren Changfeng.

Wu~ Wu~ Wu~

Sharp howls resounded throughout the heavens and the earth. Ren Changfeng knew he was powerless to dodge when he saw this, and he couldn’t help but grit his teeth and intend to use every last ounce of strength in his body to destroy the bamboo slip in his hand that had the Calamity Ward Sutra recorded on it.

However, right at this moment, a figure flashed over and carried him away to avoid death.

The figure was tall and handsome, and it was exactly Chen Xi.

“You…” Ren Changfeng was stunned and seemed to not dare believe that Chen Xi would rescue him, and then he laughed miserably. “Let me guess, you did it for the sake of the Calamity Ward Sutra in my possession?”

“You haven’t told me how to arrive at the other side of the Sea of Misery, so you can’t die.” Chen Xi spoke calmly before casually tossing Ren Changfeng to Bei Ling.

“Little Bastard! You’re courting death!” Tang Yun’s expression instantly sank when his attack proved unsuccessful. “I’ve been bearing with you for a long time all along the way here. I might have let you off if you were sensible, but unfortunately, your actions force me to kill you!”

As he spoke, he glanced at Bei Ling, and a wisp of greedy couldn’t help but suffuse the corners of his mouth. “Miss Bei Ling, you better stay there obediently, and I’ll bring you along to leave this place after I kill this useless Young Master of yours. Otherwise, it’s impossible for you to leave the Sea of Misery alive by yourself.”

Chen Xi couldn’t help but sigh in his heart when he saw this. It’s another fellow that has lost his heart to greed.

“Hahaha! Why aren’t you speaking anymore? Are you thinking of delaying? You’re truly worthless! You don’t even have the courage to fight me! Miss Bei Ling, take a look, this is the Young Master you follow! What a piece of trash!” Tang Yun roared wildly with laughter, and he seemed complacent and as if the situation was within his grasp.

However, in the next moment, his expression froze while his pupils dilated, and he seemed as if he’d seen a ghost. “You… You…”

Because Chen Xi had suddenly appeared by his side, and Chen Xi was only two steps away from him!

On the other hand, he hadn’t noticed anything from the beginning until the end.

Most horrifying to him was when he instinctively intended to make a move and kill Chen Xi, he noticed to his shock that the longbow in his hand had actually appeared in Chen Xi’s hand!

Exactly…what is going on?

Tang Yun was horrified.

Hiss!Right at this moment, he felt violent pain come from his wrist, and his right fell along with his hand while blood sprayed from his arm.

“AH!!!” Tang Yun let out a shrill cry that shook the heavens. He finally understood that in that moment from before, not only had Chen Xi approached him, Chen Xi had cut off his right hand at the same time before seizing the longbow in his hand!

Due to all of this occurring too swiftly, it caused him to be utterly unable to react!

After that, Tang Yun’s shrill cries stopped abruptly because a dim gold arrow was aimed at his mouth. The arrow was sharp and emanated a horrifying glow. Behind the arrow, Chen Xi had drawn the bow to the shape of a full moon, and his tranquil and indifferent eyes were locked coldly onto him…

“No!” As he felt an extreme threat to his life, Tang Yun’s countenance turned pale while he spoke with a trembling voice that carried a wisp of a dense begging tone. He didn’t dare to let out a shrill cry, not did he dare to move in the slightest because he was deeply afraid that he would cause Chen Xi to shoot through his mouth.

The distant Ren Changfeng saw this scene, and he couldn’t help but be astounded. Only now did he notice that this fellow that he’d always looked down upon was actually an expert that concealed his strength!

That movement technique that was swift like a bolt of lightning and a surprise attack allowed him to easily restrain Tang Yun completely. So how could such a figure possibly be an ordinary expert at the eighth level of the Earthly Immortal Realm?

“I kept you alive until now solely because I wanted to tell you something before you died. The time will come where a maggot can gain wings and flutter through the sky, but at the same time, you have to remember that a fly can never escape its fate of eating shit in the end!” Amidst his indifferent voice, Chen Xi’s fingers released the bowstring.


A string of blood sprayed out while a dim gold arrow shot through Tang Yun’s mouth, and the terrifying force on the arrow shattered his head and crushed his soul.

He perished on the spot!Ren Changfeng heaved a sigh of relief in his heart when he saw this, and the death of Tang Yun caused him to even feel slight gratitude towards Chen Xi.

But right after that, his expression turned pale while he said with shock, “Bastard! There’s actually toxic poison on the arrow!”

His voice hadn’t finished resounding in the air when the bloody hole on his left chest that was shot open by the arrow had become completely jet black, and this jet black color was spreading towards the surroundings.

In merely a short moment, his face was suffused by a strange dark green color.

“Darkblue Nethersky Powder! Looks like this bastard intended to go against me a long time ago!” Ren Changfeng originally thought that he’d escaped calamity, yet when he found out this was actually a toxic poison, his expression instantly dimmed down while his thoughts of survival were completely extinguished.

Darkblue Nethersky Powder was a terrifying poison capable of destroying the Dao Foundation of a Heavenly Immortal, and it was a poison created from a unique and secret formula that belonged solely to the Blood River Sect. It was a priceless poison that was extremely rare even in the Blood River Sect, and it wouldn’t be used lightly!

“It’s destiny… I never expected that it would benefit the two of you in the end…” Ren Changfeng’s gaze dimmed and became deathly still as he glanced at Chen Xi and Bei Ling while a wisp of an indescribable complicated feeling surging out into his heart.
