Gain benefit? Chen Xi was stunned. He gazed at the terrifying battle in the sky that seemed as if it was capable of annihilating the world, and he didn’t dare imagine how he would obtain benefits under such circumstances.
This was simply no different from pulling chestnuts out of the fire, and the slightest mistake would end in their death.
Before Chen Xi could recover from his shock, Li Yang had made a move. A translucent and large net soared into the sky and suddenly transformed into a ray of light that charged into the battlefield in the sky.
The large net was crystalline, translucent, suffused with strands of chilly starlight that caused it to seem illusory, and was light as if it didn’t exist. Moreover, it was suffused with an aura that enchanted the heart.
But surprisingly, everywhere this net passed, those mighty figures and those terrifying and mysterious lifeforms that were fighting intensely without end on the battlefield didn’t notice it at all, and they allowed the large net to pass through by their sides.
Chen Xi even saw a large hand that could blot out the sky stretch out from the depths of space, and it lay across the river of stars while its fingers were suffused with the profundities of the Laws. It crushed time and space into pieces and directly passed through the large net.
However, it seemed as if the hand had passed through a shadow while ripples arose from the large net before it recovered its former state and wasn’t damaged in the slightest. On the other hand, the large hand revealed an imperceptible trace of stiffening briefly.
“Eh?” A shocking divine voice reverberated from the depths of the universe, and it seemed as if the owner of the large hand had noticed something. However, in next to no time, he couldn’t be bothered about all of this and attacked the enemy that stood before him with a flip of his hand.
The large net continued to move towards the depths of space instead, and it was like a dreamlike and misty flowing light that didn’t cause any changes in the surroundings.
“That’s?” Chen Xi stared blankly at the net.
“The Overarching Heaven Net that’s refined from Starsoul Sand and Five Colored Rocks of Chaos. It’s one of the Natural Spirit Treasures that Master left behind. As the saying goes, the net of the heavens has large meshes, but it lets nothing through. Before this treasure, even the ethereal and indistinct Dao Insight, Laws, and karma can be captured.” Li Yang smiled lightly while the corners of her lips made a slight upward arc, and she was in high spirits.
A Natural Spirit Treasure!
Overarching Heaven Net!
It was the first time Chen Xi had heard of a treasure with such a grade, and he couldn’t help but feel a wave of shock when he thought of how this treasure could actually capture Dao Insight, the Laws, karma, and various other ethereal and indistinct. He didn’t dare believe that the treasures in the world would actually possess such a miraculous effect.
In merely a short moment, Li Yang’s eyes lit up before she said with a smile, “The fish has entered the net. Little Junior Brother, quickly sit down cross-legged because this fish is a shattered piece of the Laws of the Heaven Dao!”
The Laws of the Heaven Dao!
Chen Xi was astounded. This Senior Sister of mine is truly too surprising.
If he didn’t agree to follow Li Yang here to witness the battle between the great figures of the three dimensions, he wouldn’t believe that everything he’d seen and heard here were real.
But at this moment, he didn’t have the time to contemplate so much and hurriedly held his breath while calming his heart before he sat down cross-legged, and then he discarded the distracting thoughts in his mind before entering into meditation.
Right when he’d just entered into a meditative state, he felt his entire body being bound by a blazing stream, and the energy in this stream was pure, vast, and coiled with the energy of a myriad of Dao Insights and Laws.
It was like strong wine that was brewed from countless Laws and Dao Insights had entered into his entire body through his pores, causing the tendons and bones in Chen Xi’s body to actually emit the roars of lions and dragons. They resounded wave after wave and stretched throughout his body to form ring after ring of the glow of the Grand Dao.
After that, this indescribable and miraculous energy started to seep into his blood, meridians, internal organs… In an instant, it was like water droplets that had fallen into a wok of oil, and they exploded.
The Blackhole World in Chen Xi’s Dantian circulated madly while a myriad of talisman markings seethed and were suffused with blazing and boundless light. In that instant, even the Immortal Energy in the surroundings started to circulate.
At this moment, Chen Xi seemed to have transformed into an ocean of talisman markings. Every single pore in his body surged with strands of the glow of the Dao while Immortal Energy rumbled and circulated without end within his meridians, internal organs, apertures, and Blackhole World as the indescribable aura of the Dao surged throughout his body as well.
His body embodied Dao Insight and merged into the world.
His mind and body entered the Dao, and the Dao formed into talisman markings.
“Little Junior Brother really is extraordinary. He actually inscribed talisman markings on the meridians in his entire body and his Blackhole World, causing them to form the aura of the Dao. In this way, his body is internally illuminated by the flames of his vitality while it externally reflects the circulation of the world. If he advances into the Heavenly Immortal Realm, then he’ll probably be able to condense the energy of the Laws in an extremely short period of time…” The nearby Li Yang’s face was slightly pale while the exhaustion on her face was difficult to conceal. But the gaze she shot at Chen Xi carried a wisp of delight and gratification instead.
This fragment of the Heaven Dao was the supreme energy of order that maintained a world. It represented the might of the heavens, and it was extremely emotionless and supreme. The Dao Insight and energy of the Laws that was comprehended by the myriad of living beings in the world came from within the Heaven Dao.
Presently, Li Yang had seized the opportunity of the eruption of this calamity and the moment the Heaven Dao collapsed and shattered to capture a fragment of the shattered Heaven Dao with the Overarching Heaven Net for Chen Xi while disregarding the consumption of her strength that it caused. This obviously showed how terrifying the strength contained within the fragment of the Heaven Dao was.
It was even not exaggerated to say that a fragment of the Heaven Dao like this was a priceless and precious treasure that immortals dreamt of in the Immortal Dimension!
Time gradually flowed by.
Under this energy of the Heaven Dao that surged like an ocean, Chen Xi’s vital energy and Immortal Energy attained the highest peak within the Earthly Immortal Realm, and it was a full and flawless state. Merely in terms of the denseness of his Immortal Energy, it was even over a hundred times denser than ordinary Earthly Immortals!
At the same time, his grasp towards the various Dao Insights had obtain an obvious increase. For example, the Dao Insights like the five elements, Yin, Yang, wind, lightning, star, Paramita, Oblivion, and so on and so forth had attained perfection a long time ago. Now, they’d started to condense and faintly showed signs of transforming into divine chains of the Laws.
On the other hand, Grand Dao profundities like Obliteration, Eternal, Devour, Creation, Judgment, and so on and so forth that hadn’t attained perfection, they were improving swiftly at a tremendous pace.
If this scene were to be seen by others, they would probably be shocked unconscious by it.
This was the might of a fragment of the Heaven Dao. It represented the might of the heavens and supreme order. It circulated within the three thousand worlds of the Mortal Dimension, so how could the might contained within it be ordinary?
Of course, its ability to attain such extraordinary effect couldn’t do without the thick foundation that Chen Xi possessed. If he hadn’t attained the ‘extreme realm’ of the Earthly Immortal Realm and hadn’t grasped over ten types of Grand Dao profundities, then it would be impossible for him to completely release the might of the fragment of the Heaven Dao.
Take Dao Insights for example. If it was a cultivator that hadn’t grasped any Dao Insights, then even if he was give ten Heaven Dao Fragments, it would be utterly impossible for him to grasp the various profundities contained within it.
This was like the relationship between seeds and the rain. Chen Xi had already planted various seeds, and this Heaven Dao Fragment had transformed into rain that caused the seeds to sprout and grow…
Without seeds, then no matter how much rain there was, it was useless.
After an unknown period of time, Chen Xi opened his eyes from his meditation. His gaze was calm and even more immense, and then divine lights surged into appearance before they transformed into various miraculous diagrams that flashed in his eyes before vanishing.
“My tribulation is descending in forty nine days…” At this instant, Chen Xi had a natural strand of comprehension, and he sensed that moment of opportunity to advance into the ninth level of the Earthly Immortal Realm and ascend into the Immortal Dimension.
When he recalled everything he’d experienced all along the way here and thought of how he was about to ascend into the Immortal Dimension, all the emotions in his heart transformed into calmness in the end.
He knew that this day would arrive.
Just like he firmly believed that he would be able to attain any desire so long as he was alive.
Because he’d never questioned or wondered about it in the past, he seemed to be extremely calm and composed at this moment.
“Congratulations Little Junior Brother. With your accumulation, no one would dare look down upon you once you arrive at the Immortal Dimension.” The nearby Li Yang chuckled as she sized Chen Xi up, and then she revealed a charming smile.
Chen Xi stood up and cupped his hands as he said, “I have to thank Senior Sister for helping me achieve all of this.”
He was very clearly aware that if he didn’t possess this Heaven Dao Fragment, then he would probably have to enter into closed door cultivation for a very long period of time to comprehend the opportune moment to advance into the ninth level of the Earthly Immortal Realm.
“Alright, the curtains to the calamity have already been drawn, and I should leave as well.” Li Yang smiled as she spoke in a light voice.
The curtains to the calamity have already been drawn… Chen Xi was stunned, and then he looked up into the sky. He saw that the sky that was torn apart like silk, the vast battlefield where the great figures fought violently, and the terrifying fluctuations that filled the world and possessed an destructive aura… All of the chaos and slaughter had vanished completely without him noticing it.
At this moment, the sky was clear while the energy of the Heaven Dao circulated within it, and everything had recovered to a calm state as it was before.
“It ended just like that?” Chen Xi recalled the shocking scenes from before, and he was still extremely dazed.
“They’ve already fought for seven days, and those who should die have already perished, whereas those that didn’t have been drawn up into the Immortal Dimension. All in all, those old fellows from the three dimensions that pulled the strings from behind the scenes can be considered to have obtained a small victory during this battle.” That wisp of familiar ridicule appeared once more on the corners of Li Yang’s mouth. “But in the end, a portion of people have to be sacrificed in a match, and exactly who’ll be able to remain laughing until the end can only be known after the true upheaval of the three dimensions arrives.”
Chen Xi was unable to understand all of this for now, but he believed that once the upheaval of the three dimensions arrived, then he would surely be able to understand the cause and effect of everything.
Because it was just as Li Yang had said, at that time, no one could avoid getting involved in it!
After that, Li Yang didn’t stay any longer, and she brought Chen Xi along to swiftly vanish on Solitary Peak.
The Nine Radiance Sword Sect.
The atmosphere was gloomy, and regardless of elder or disciple, everyone had sorrowful expressions.
When Chen Xi returned, he found out that the Three Saints of Nine Radiance, Feng Ting, Fei Ling, and Deng Chen had fallen during the calamity.
This was undoubtedly an extremely heavy blow to the Nine Radiance Sword Sect.
Actually, it wasn’t just the Nine Radiance Sword Sect. No matter if it was forsakers of the heavens or those seniors that lived in seclusion, all the existences in the entire Dark Reverie that were at the ninth level of the Earthly Immortal Realm or above had been affected by this calamity.
Some perished during the calamity, and there were some that were fortunate enough to survive. But they were drawn into the Immortal Dimension and were unable to return to the Mortal Dimension any longer.
Perhaps this was one of the reasons that such a calamity occurred? It was for the sake of utilizing the might of the calamity to completely wipe out all forces that exceeded the scope of the Mortal Dimension? Chen Xi couldn’t refrain from having this thought, and his feelings were slightly heavy.
After that, he shook his head and stopped thinking about it.
All of this was too far away from him. So even if this calamity was a scheme that was meticulously set up by someone a long time ago, what about it?
When one’s strength was insufficient, one could only be passively reduced to a chess piece.
I wonder where in the Immortal Dimension is the Dao Emperor Academy… Chen Xi suddenly recalled Li Yang’s instructions before she left, and he couldn’t help but feel a trace of anticipation.
