Immortal Monarch’s Estate, Brightglow Hall.
The name of this hall implied a bright sun that hung in the sky and illuminated the world.
Immortal Monarch Lin Hao who wore a white robe and had hair that hung loosely on his shoulders sat at the seat of the head. He didn’t have the slightest expression on his face, and he remained completely silent. Only his eyes flowed with cold bolts of electricity as they opened and closed, and it was horrifying.
The atmosphere in the hall was extremely oppressive and deathly silent.
All the guards under the command of the immortal monarch and even three Golden Immortal Realm experts that lived in seclusion had gathered here, all of them had gloomy expressions while feeling slightly uneasy and anxious.
The scenes that occurred earlier were truly too astonishing. One of the six blazing suns that were extremely renowned in the Immortal Dimension now, Mu Junlin, had actually broken the entrance to the Immortal Monarch’s Estate with a single sword strike!
That wasn’t the end of it, Mu Junlin had actually said that he wanted Immortal Monarch Lin Hao to personally head to the Midnight Continent within three days to atone for his crimes!
If any other Golden Immortal dared to speak in this way, then everyone would absolutely think that the Golden Immortal was a total idiot and was purely looking for death.
But these words were spoken by Mu Junlin, so they had no choice but to attach great importance to it.
He was one of the six great blazing suns of the Immortal Dimension and came from one of the four great continents, the Midnight Continent moreover, the terrifying and mysterious great power, the Mu Clan, was standing behind him…
Would anyone dare disregard the words spoken by such a figure with such background?
Even Immortal Monarch Lin Hao didn’t dare disregard it, and it was even to the extent that Immortal Monarch Lin Hao didn’t make a move to stop Mu Junlin from leaving. In another way, this displayed that Immortal Monarch Lin Hao was fearful of Mu Junlin.
Even if Mu Junlin was only a Golden Immortal, the dazzling halos that circled around Mu Junlin were sufficient to make even Immortal Monarch Lin Hao who possessed a cultivation at the Saint Immortal Realm to not dare act rashly.
In view of these reasons, Immortal Monarch Lin Hao had gathered all the higher-ups beneath his command for the sake of finding out exactly what had infuriated Mu Junlin to the point that this incident occurred.
When a ruler that controlled a continent desired to obtain some information, it was truly too simple. In almost no time, a guard charged into the hall while sweating profusely, and then knelt down on the ground with a thump while trembling with fear before submitting the information he’d gathered.
The information was extremely simple. It recorded in detail everything that had occurred in the Azuresoul Mine, and it included the names of every single ascender. Shockingly, Chen Xi and Mu Linglong’s names were there as well.
When he saw the words ‘Mu Linglong,’ Immortal Monarch Lin Hao instantly understood everything. In the next instant, his expression turned icy cold and gloomy to the extreme.
Since it was able to make a Saint Immortal furious to such an extent, it obviously showed the impact this piece of information had brought to Immortal Monarch Lin Hao.
The atmosphere in the hall became even more oppressive, and it seemed as if it had frozen and caused everyone to feel suffocated.
Everyone turned silent like cicadas in the winter and felt even more uneasy.
“All of you are really great. All of you actually made no distinction and blindly captured everyone. How impressive!” Immortal Monarch Lin Hao spoke word by word as if it was squeezed out from the cracks between his teeth, and it was like sledgehammers that struck on the hearts of everyone, causing them to be shocked to the point their faces went pale while their bodies were completely drenched by cold sweat.
The body of the guard that knelt on the floor went weak as he fell completely on the ground with a ghastly pale expression, and his entire body started trembling uncontrollably. How could the might of a Saint Immortal in a state of rage be something he could resist?
Fortunately, Immortal Monarch Lin Hao withdrew his might and rage in the next moment because he was clearly aware that he couldn’t be furious right now as he had to think of a method to deal with this.
Otherwise, a group of old fellows might swarm over murderously from the Midnight Continent three days from now…
“Who was in charge of the Azuresoul Mine?” Immortal Monarch Lin Hao’s expression had become extremely indifferent and emotionless as he spoke.
“It…it was… Commander Meng Xin.” The guard on the ground spoke with a trembling voice.
“Order him to come see me before it turns dark today, otherwise he doesn’t have to return again!” Immortal Monarch Lin Hao instructed coldly. Once he recovered his calm, he fully revealed the resolute and decisive methods of a ruler.
Everyone sighed in their hearts when they heard this as they were clearly aware that Commander Meng Xin would probably be made the scapegoat this time.
“My Lord, what should we do about that Chen Xi?” Meanwhile, Qin Zhong couldn’t help but asked with a low voice. Mu Linglong had left, yet she’d clearly expressed that if they dared to cause trouble for Chen Xi, then she would take them to be enemies.
Immortal Monarch Lin Hao’s attitude towards this was extremely firm, and he answered without the slightest hesitation. “Capture him! No matter what, he can’t be allowed to escape Eastern Peace Continent!”
Everyone was stunned by this decision, and they were completely bewildered. They didn’t understand why Immortal Monarch Lin Hao would persist to act in this way under such circumstances.
“The Mu Clan is extraordinary indeed, but it doesn’t mean that no one can go against them.” Immortal Monarch Lin Hao seemed to have thought of something, causing his expression to carry a wisp of confidence.
When they heard this, everyone faintly felt that Immortal Monarch Lin Hao had probably been asked by someone to capture Chen Xi, and the identity of the person that pulled the strings behind the scenes obviously possessed the ability to go against the Mu Clan.
When they thought up to here, everyone felt shocked in their hearts. Since this person was capable of making the Immortal Monarch listen to his orders, could it be that the person pulling the strings from behind the scenes is a power from one of the four great continents?
On the other hand, exactly what is the identity of that Chen Xi to actually draw the hatred of such a colossus?
The more they thought about it, the more shocked they were, and only now did they notice that the wanted ascender actually had an extremely great secret.
“Alright, I’ll be heading to the four great continents tomorrow to pay a visit to a friend. With his assistance, I ought to be able to easily deal with the problem with the Mu Clan. As for the matter of capturing Chen Xi, I’ll leave it to all of you.” Immortal Monarch Lin Hao pondered deeply for a long time before he decided.
Everyone nodded in unison when they heard this. The level of this matter was too high, and perhaps it could only be resolved by the Lord Immortal Monarch. As for all of them, they were subordinates that were utterly unable to encounter figures of that level, so they were naturally didn’t even have a chance to help.
Amongst the people present, only Qin Zhong felt slightly hesitant, and he couldn’t restrain himself in the end. “My Lord, I’ve just obtained the news that Chen Xi might have joined forces with the Goldwave Immortal Pavilion and Four Divinity Academy…”
Before he could finish speaking, Immortal Monarch Lin Hao’s face sank while the flames of rage he’d just restrained had started to leap out once more. He couldn’t restrain himself any longer and shouted in a grim voice. “What did you say?! Tell me clearly! Exactly what is going on!?”
His voice was like a thunderclap that shook everyone present to the point their eardrums almost split open.
At this moment, everyone present here felt slightly at a loss. No matter which one it was, the Goldwave Immortal Pavilion and Four Divinity Academy weren’t a power their Immortal Monarch’s Estate could compare to. Presently, Chen Xi had actually joined forces with these two powers, so it was no wonder that Immortal Monarch Lin Hao would be so furious.
Qin Zhong gulped down a mouthful of saliva with great difficulty before he spoke and explained everything he knew.
“What a truly troublesome little fellow!” After he finished listening to all of this, Immortal Monarch Lin Hao couldn’t help but grit his teeth and sigh with emotion.
Everyone else deeply agreed. Who could have imagined that a young man who’d just ascended into the Immortal Dimension would actually cause so many disturbances in less than half a month of time?
“But the situation isn’t so severe yet. Wu Yuan is only the administrator of the Goldwave Immortal Pavilion in Cloudray City, and he can’t represent the attitude of the entire Goldwave Immortal Pavilion. Not to mention from the beginning until the end, there’s no proof that there’s any close relationship between him and Chen Xi.” Immortal Monarch Lin Hao took a deep breath and said slowly, “As for that teacher, Xuan Yun, from the Four Divinity Academy, if he dares to protect that kid, then so long as it’s within the Eastern Peace Continent, he can’t do anything about it!”
“Then…what should we do?” Qin Zhong asked in a low voice.
“If you’ve clearly investigated that Chen Xi is following by Xuan Yun’s side, then stop them and capture that kid before allowing Xuan Yun to leave.” Immortal Monarch Lin Hao instructed before he stood up and left the hall with large strides.
Beneath the boundlessly high sky, a bronze treasured carriage smashed through the waves of air as it flashed forward.
Within the treasured carriage, Chen Xi sat cross-legged while condensing the energy of the Laws. Wu Xun was studying the Dao of Talismans with a concentrated expression instead. On the other hand, Xuan Yu was holding the newly repaired ancient talisman and inspecting it calmly.
The atmosphere was extremely peaceful.
But Chen Xi was clearly aware that this peace was only temporary, and the forces under the command of the Immortal Monarch would absolutely not allow him to leave the Eastern Peace Continent like this.
Not to mention their destination this time was Spirit Radiance City, and it was absolutely a place that was surrounded by massive forces since a long time ago.
The reason was extremely simple. Long ago while he was still in Cloudray City, Chen Xi had already found out that only two cities within the entire Eastern Peace Continent possessed teleportation formations that were connected to other continents.
One was the Phoenix Rest City, the lair of the Immortal Monarch’s Estate.
The other was Spirit Radiance City. For the sake of capturing Chen Xi or to prevent Chen Xi from escaping Eastern Peace Continent, the forces of the Immortal Monarch’s Estate would absolutely not leave these critical places unguarded.
In other words, the Spirit Radiance City was absolutely like the lair of a dragon to Chen Xi, and it could be said to contain killing intent with every step he took.
He had no choice but to go there.
Because if he wanted to leave Eastern Peace Continent, then he had to utilize the teleportation formation in Spirit Radiance City as everyone in their group including Xuan Yun wasn’t a Golden Immortal, so they were naturally unable to move freely between continents.
But the only thing that caused Chen Xi to feel at ease was that according to Xuan Yun, the experts of the Four Divinity Academy would converge with them when they arrived at Spirit Radiance City.
With this assistance, it would be sufficient to guarantee that they would be able to leave Eastern Peace Continent safely.
Of course, this was merely Xuan Yun’s guarantee.
Chen Xi didn’t dare to place all hope onto Xuan Yun, and based on the current circumstances, only the path of improving his own strength would cause him to feel much more at ease.
Unknowingly, a day had passed. The bronze treasured carriage was moving in the sky above a desolate plain, and it was evening, causing the boundless sky to be dim.
Xuan Yun who was studying the ancient talisman suddenly raised his head and withdrew a flickering jade white pearl from his pocket before he said with a smile, “The assistance from our Four Divinity Academy has arrived.”
As he spoke, he’d stood up and stopped the bronze treasured carriage.
Chen Xi and Wu Xun’s spirits were refreshed when they heard this, and they stood up successively before following behind Xuan Yun to arrive outside the treasured carriage.
A piercingly cold silver radiance that was like starlight swiftly tore through the sky as it rushed over from extremely far in the distance, and it appeared in their fields of visions.
When Chen Xi saw the silver radiance emanated by the flying immortal treasure, he couldn’t help but be stunned while a wisp of an astounded expression appeared on the corners of his mouth.
