When he ascended into the Immortal Dimension, Chen Xi had passed over all the Immortal Artifacts, medicinal pills, and spirit materials within the Buddha’s Pagoda to Chen Yu and Chen An, whereas he only brought along some necessary treasures.
For example, the Dao Calamity Sword, Saintslaughter Forbidden Sword, Calamity Ward Green Lantern, Talisman Armament, the Flame God Fan that hadn’t been refined, and so on and so forth.
These treasures were mostly those that even he hadn’t been able to grasp completely, and they were linked to various strands of karma, so he naturally didn’t dare to casually give it to another.
For example, the Dao Calamity Sword was a precious treasure left behind by the Chaotic Divine Lotus. While he was in the Mortal Dimension, it had drawn the covetous intentions of the Misty Immortal Mountain, and they didn’t hesitate to send Mei Luoxiao, Yu Zhongxia, Yun Qiusheng, and the others down to the Mortal Dimension to demand for it. Thus, this obviously showed how extraordinary the sword’s origins were.
Now that I’ve already advanced into the Heavenly Immortal Realm, the might of the Talisman Armament is merely slightly formidable when compared to an ordinary Immortal Artifact. Looks like I have to find an opportunity to improve its might… As he flashed through the deep and quiet passageway, Chen Xi pondered in his heart.
Presently, it was as if he was on a journey by himself, and if he wanted to gain a foothold in the Immortal Dimension, then the only way would be to try his best to improve his strength.
“Save…save me…” Right at this moment, a weak voice sounded out from the depths of the passageway.
Chen Xi was stunned, and he immediately flashed forward. It wasn’t long before he saw a damp rock wall, and a man in rags who had disheveled hair was lying there.
The man’s lips were pale while his eyes were dim and dull, and his vital energy was in chaos. He was already on the verge of death.
This was obviously a slave, but Chen Xi frowned because a few icy cold and stiff corpses were scattered by this man’s side, and they’d been dead for a long time.
“Fellow Daoist! Help me! Quickly, quickly give me an Immortal Stone…” Then man’s eyes lit up when he saw Chen Xi, and they surged with a wisp of delight and were filled with a pleading expression as he gasped for breath while speaking.
“I can give you an Immortal Stone. But tell me what happened to all of you first.” Chen Xi frowned as he sized up the surroundings, and he asked in an indifferent tone.
The man laughed bitterly while his face was suffused with a wisp of resentment, and he said, “Fellow Daoist, I presume you’re an ascender that was captured and brought over here. Could it be that you’re unaware that if one doesn’t return to the surface from the depths of the mine before sunset, then one will suffer the invasion of Azuresoul Baleful Qi, and it will cause one’s vitality to dry up to the point of being reduced to a cripple or even cause death.”
Chen Xi’s angular brows raised as he said, “The Azuresoul Baleful Qi can’t be so terrifying, right? With all of your strengths, it ought to be extremely easy to return to the surface.”
The man suddenly became agitated and roared. “Return to the surface? To seek death? Do you think those guards will let us off if we’re unable to excavate sufficient amounts of Azuresoul Sourcerocks?”
Chen Xi came to a sudden understanding, and he roughly guessed that this man had probably not excavated sufficient Azuresoul Sourcerocks and was deeply afraid of being killed by those guards after returning to the surface. Thus, he stayed in the depths of the mine, yet never had he expected that he would be assaulted by the Azuresoul Baleful Qi, causing him to fall to such a state.
If he possessed sufficient Immortal Stones, then with this man’s cultivation, he wouldn’t have to be afraid of the Azuresoul Baleful Qi.
Unfortunately, Chen Xi was very well aware that not to mention this man, all ascenders that entered this mine would have the storage magic treasures in their possession seized away, so they could be said to not have a single penny left, let alone Immortal Stones.
Chen Xi thought for a moment before he withdrew an Immortal Stone and directly tossed it over.
“Thank you, thank you, Fellow Daoist!” When he saw the Immortal Stone, the man pounced up from the ground like a hungry wolf, but he didn’t pounce towards the Immortal Stoner but assaulted Chen Xi instead.
He was extremely swift like an eagle that swooped down towards a rabbit, and his imposing aura was fierce and ruthless. He didn’t seem like someone on the verge of death at all!
At this instant, Chen Xi even clearly noticed a wisp of a savage and warped smile appear on this person’s face, and he seemed as if his scheme had succeeded.
The distance between the two of them was only over 30m.
This little bit of distance coupled with a surprise attack caused the man to be confident that he would be able to kill Chen Xi one strike. So, he couldn’t help but speak sarcastically with complacency as he made a move. “Fellow Daoist, I’m sorry. I can only do this for the sake of being able to escape this place…”
But he hadn’t finished speaking when his voice stopped abruptly!
A hand that was like an iron claw descended as if it appeared out of thin air, and it grabbed onto the man’s neck, causing his face to instantly flush red and swell up while he almost fell unconscious from suffocation.
“Looks like these corpses were your doing?” Chen Xi’s gaze was icy cold as he glanced at the cold corpses on the ground, and his voice had turned emotionless.
This aura of this man was weak, so how could he possibly be a match for Chen Xi?
Even if Chen Xi was utilizing his clone at this moment, yet his cultivation body refinement had attained the 8th level of the Earthly Immortal Realm a long time ago in the world of stars!
It was especially so as his clone had always been cultivating in seclusion within the world of stars, and if he counted the time carefully, his clone had cultivated for over six hundred years!
Moreover, because his clone had been formed from his main body, the relationship between them was like the relationship between his right and left hand. So the clone didn’t have to experience the tribulations that his main body had overcome.
This was the advantage of the Worldmend Technique. All those years ago, A’xiu had passed down this technique to Chen Xi for the sake of breaking through the Fiendgod Restriction when one cultivated in both body refinement and qi refinement at the same time.
In the three dimensions, there probably wasn’t another cultivation technique capable of defying the heavens and changing one’s fate like the Worldmend Technique.
After experiencing six hundred years of comprehension and cultivation, no matter if it was his clone’s grasp of Divine Abilities or the tempering of his clone’s body, it had attained an unprecedented height a long time ago. Presently, he was only a step away before he could attain the Dao with his body and advance into the Heavenly Immortal Realm!
At this moment, it was merely an act of annihilating an ascender with a weak aura, so it was simply as easy as flipping his hand. So how could he possibly be struck by the man’s surprise attack?
A wisp of terror suffused the man’s face as he said with a trembling voice, “Fellow Daoist, don’t kill me. I’m a disciple from the Sky Descent World’s Nangong Clan. You’ve probably heard of the Immortal Dimension’s Nangong Clan in the Sacred Cloud State. My grandfather is an elder in the Nangong Clan. So if you let me off now, then I, Nangong Hui will surely repay you generously after we escape this place in the future!”
“The Nangong Clan?” Chen Xi frowned.
“Right! The Nangong Clan!” Nangong Hui nodded repeatedly while a wisp of hope was rekindled on his face.
In the next moment, Chen Xi has twisted his neck, and Chen Xi couldn’t help but shake his head as he looked at the wisp of astonishment and bewilderment on Nangong Hui’s face. “I’ve just arrived at the Immortal Dimension as well, so how could I be aware of any Nangong Clan…?”
As soon as he finished speaking, he casually tossed Nangong Hui’s corpse to the side.
He was just intending to leave when he thought of something, so he went back and searched Nangong Hui’s corpse. Sure enough, he noticed six Azuresoul Sourcerocks.
“Six Azuresoul Sourcerocks. He only had to suffer four strikes of the whip to survive, yet he stayed here. He obviously had ill intent and despicable motives, so he deserved death.” Chen Xi shook his head and was just about to leave when a stern shout sounded out from the deep and quiet passageway behind him.
“Stay right there! Hand over the Azuresoul Sourcerocks you plundered from him and this Young Master will spare your life!” Accompanying this voice was a group of three figures that were flying over here. The person in the lead was a young man who wore a tall crown and gold colored clothes. Shockingly, he was Xiao Yun from the Endless World.
This fellow held his head up high as soon as he arrived at the Immortal Transformation Pool, and there was a pair of man and woman servants following behind him. He’d boasted about being a descendent of the Immortal Dimension’s Solitary Origin Dao Sect’s Daoist Xiao Long, and he made a great show of power and prestige.
But in the end, this fellow was captured by the Mysterious Immortal Meng Xing that suddenly made an appearance.
At that time, Chen Xxi was clearly aware that the Solitary Origin Dao Sect’s forces were probably unable to compare to the forces controlled by Immortal Monarch Lin Hao, otherwise, Meng Xing would probably not dare act as he did.
But all of this didn’t carry any deterrent force towards Chen Xi.
He was all alone while this place was the depths of the Azuresoul Mine, so even if he killed Xiao Yun, there would probably be know one that knew that it was he who did it.
“What a kid! I never noticed that you’re actually a ruthless fellow that was capable of such things. This Young Master can spare your life if you cooperate, otherwise… Hehe! You can only fall to the same end as all of them.” Xiao Yun glanced at the corpses on the ground and smirked.
“Your strengths have recovered?” Chen Xi asked abruptly. He’d clearly sensed that no matter if it was Xiao Yun or the male and female servants behind him, all of them had surging vital energy. Obviously, their strengths had recovered, and they only had to condense the energy of the Laws to become true Heavenly Immortal Realm experts.
“I didn’t know that you have a rather good discerning ability, kid. Why don’t you become a servant of mine? I’m not afraid to tell you that I only need ten days of time before someone will come to rescue this Young Master. So long as you cooperate obediently, then perhaps this Young Master will bring you along at that time and out of this damnable place.” Xiao Yun kept his hands behind his back as he spoke proudly.
“Looks like you didn’t hand over all the storage magic treasures in your possession?” Chen Xi smiled spuriously. He possessed the Dark Parasol Sapling, so he naturally wouldn’t care about the problem of recovering his Immortal Force.
But Xiao Yun and the others were actually able to recover their strengths a day after they’d ascended, so they probably carried some sort of extraordinary treasure as well.
“Hmph! This isn’t something you should be concerned about.” Xiao Yun grunted coldly and said impatiently, “Cut the crap. Quickly hand over the Azuresoul Sourcerocks. This Young Master doesn’t want to stay here for a moment longer!”
“Kid, hand it over obediently. My Young Master rarely takes the initiative to take a servant, and this is a fortune that others fight to the death to gain!”
“One who can comprehend the facts of a situation is a wise man. Kid, don’t force us to be ruthless!”
The male and female servants spoke successively.
“Don’t… Don’t give it to them!” Right at this moment, a voice sounded out from the passageway behind them. But this voice was clear, bright, and carried a weak feeling.
Mu Linglong? Chen Xi was stunned. Sure enough, he saw a weak and graceful figure fly over, and it was precisely the Skyearth World’s Mu Linglong.
“They’re all bad people. Earlier, they caught me unprepared and seized an ore vein of mine, and they dug out an entire seven or eight Azuresoul Sourcerocks. I might have been murdered by them if I didn’t flee swiftly. Young Master Chen Xi, you must not be tricked by them!” Mu Linglong stood far away as she warned Chen Xi while her jade white face was covered in fury.
This young woman isn’t bad.
She clearly knows it’s dangerous yet still came over to warn me. This sort of good intention is truly precious and difficult to come by.
Chen Xi was stunned before he said with a smile, “Don’t worry Miss Mu, I never took them to be good people.”
