Time flew by like an arrow, and it was already a month since Chen Xi met Liang Bing last.
During this period of time, the hottest topic in Southbridge Continent was naturally Yin Miaomiao, and besides this was that quite a few changes had occurred in the top ten rankings.
Luo Zifeng that was ranked sixth previously had defeated the fifth ranked Wang Youya to take his rank, whereas the ninth ranked Gu Yutan had defeated the seventh ranked Xuan Wenlong to assume his place.
In this way, Liang Bing who was originally ranked eighth between Gu Yutang and Xuan Wenlong had been pushed down a rank to become the ninth.
This change similarly drew the attention of most great powers.
Liang Ren was defeated by Yin Miaomiao, causing his ranking to drop to the fourth, whereas Liang Bing’s ranking had fallen to the ninth. Did these changes mean that the Liang Clan’s status on the Southbridge Continent’s Continental Ascensio Rankings would be surpassed by the Yin Clan, Luo Clan, and Gu Clan?
After all, if one observed carefully, then one would notice that the Luo Clan’s Luo Zifeng, the Yin Clan’s Yin Miaomiao, and the Gu Clan’s Gu Yutang had all improved their rankings recently, whereas Liang Clan’s Liang Ren and Liang Bing’s rankings had fallen by a position, so it was naturally thought provoking.
Of course, besides these matters, there was one more matter that everyone followed with interest, and it was that battle between Chen Xi and Yin Wanxun that still hadn’t occurred after a month of time.
Yin Wanxun had been waiting in the Martial Emperor Domain since then, yet Chen Xi was nowhere to be found.
This naturally caused some of the people that intended to watch the show to feel disappointed. After their disappointment came displeasure, and after their displeasure came disdain before disdain finally turned into the inability to refrain from complaining.
“That fellow wouldn’t be afraid of the battle and gone into hiding, right?”
“Alas, perhaps it really is like that. I heard that Yin Wanxun was ranked at the one hundred and fifty fourth position before he advanced into the intermediate-stage of the Mysterious Immortal Realm, this it’s obvious how formidable his combat strength is now.”
“Hmph! I originally thought another extraordinary young genius had appeared in our Southbridge Continent, yet now it would seem like that kid called Chen Xi is obviously slightly useless.”
Along with the passage of time and Chen Xi not appearing in the Martial Emperor Domain for a long time, it caused discussions like these to increase day by day, and everyone was displeased with Chen Xi’s actions of not making an appearance from his fear of the battle.
Chen Xi wasn’t aware of all of this.
At this moment, he was carefully sizing up the Talisman Armament that had been refined successfully in the world of stars.
A simple and unsophisticated shape, a pitch black and lusterless blade. It seemed dark and inconspicuous at first glance, yet if one looked carefully, one would be able to feel an icy cold and fierce aura that assaulted the face, and it seemed like a primeval ferocious beast that was waiting for its chance to swallow its enemies was residing within it.
Chen Xi struck the blade lightly with his finger, causing a piercingly cold and drawn-out sword cry to resound, and it spread throughout the entire world of stars like a tide. In an instant, the surrounding space was filled with a murderous and sharp aura while hissing sounds of shattering and wailing were emanated.
It was the embodiment of the might of the Talisman Armament itself. If it was in the outside world, merely this aura was sufficient to arouse horror in ordinary Heavenly Immortals, causing them to have no choice but to circulate their cultivations to resist it.
What a treasure! It really deserves to be a Talisman Armament that possesses boundless potential to improve in quality. In terms of might alone, it’s not inferior to a high-rank Darkspirit Grand Immortal Artifact! Chen Xi’s eyes were suffused with a wisp of a pleased expression, and he immediately stood up before leaving the world of stars.
On the other hand, his clone fell into a deep level of meditative cultivation, and it was tempering its body for the sake of preparing to advance into the Heavenly Immortal Realm in body refinement. All he was waiting for was for Liang Bing to gather sufficient Immortal Shaman Bloodsoul Crystals, and then he would start charging into the Heavenly Immortal Realm.
On that day, Yin Wanxun had threatened to blast Chen Xi’s soul apart so he would become a complete idiot. Chen Xi naturally remembered this.
So as soon as he left his closed door cultivation, he intended to enter directly into the Martial Emperor Domain. But before he headed over, he had to look for Liang Zhen and Liang Liang. After all, their assistance was able to deal with some unnecessary and trivial matters.
“You intend to head to the Martial Emperor Domain?” When she found out Chen Xi was looking for Liang Zhen and Liang Liang, Liang Bing’s expression became slightly uneasy, but it vanished in an instant.
Chen Xi acutely noticed this, yet he didn’t question any further and just nodded.
“Right, after you defeated Yan Ping that day, your ranking already rose to the hundred and ninety third position, and if nothing unexpected happens, then your ranking will only rise even more after you advanced into the intermediate-stage of the Heavenly Immortal Realm now.” Liang Bing seemed to be lost in thought, and then she said, “However, you have to watch out for Yin Wanxun. He already possessed the potential to charge into the top hundred as soon as he advanced into the intermediate-stage of the Mysterious Immortal Realm, so he can’t be underestimated.”
Chen Xi smiled and said, “I know.”
A month ago, Liang Liang had already told him about Yin Wanxun’s ability, and if it was before, perhaps he would be slightly fearful, yet now, he just happened to need a formidable opponent to temper his strength.
Liang Bing hesitated briefly when she saw that Chen Xi seemed as if he was all prepared, and she said in the end, “Liang Zhen and Liang Liang will probably be unable to head over with you.”
Chen Xi was stunned. “Could it be that something happened?”
“When the two of them headed over to the Yin Clan to collect the debt, they were beaten cruelly by Yin Feng’er’s group. They collected the debt, yet they suffered a heavy injury and were almost crippled. They’re recuperating now.” Liang Bing spoke about it in a casual manner, yet her voice carried rage and coldness that was impossible to restrain.
The debt they went to collect was naturally the immortal stones the disciples of the Yin Clan had to pay according to the rules in order to challenge Chen Xi. But Chen Xi had never expected that the Yin Clan would actually do such a thing.
For a time, his expression gradually turned cold. It could be said that Liang Zhen and Liang Liang had suffered a heavy injury and were on the verge of being crippled because they were working for him, so how could Chen Xi not be infuriated?
“The Yin Clan… Yin Feng’er…” Chen Xi repeatedly it before his expression recovered its calm, and he said, “Leave this enmity to me.” As soon as he finished speaking, he’d turned around and left.
“Chen Xi, you must not be rash! Yin Feng’er is ranked at the eleventh position, and she’s absolutely not someone you can go against now.” Liang Bing couldn’t help but warn him.
Chen Xi didn’t even turn back as he said casually, “Do I look like a rash person? But there are some things that one can’t go too overboard on, otherwise one must pay the price.”
Martial Emperor Domain.
This was the third time Chen Xi had stepped foot into this miraculous domain. But his heart had a strand of killing intent when he arrived this time.
A figure flashed past Chen Xi and seemed to have noticed something, and he swiftly turned his head around. When he saw Chen Xi’s appearance, he couldn’t help but cry. “Chen Xi! You’ve finally made an appearance!”
He seemed to be extremely excited and exceedingly surprised. Thus, his voice seemed to be rather sharp, and it instantly drew the attention of many experts in the vicinity.
“What! After a month, this fellow has finally shown himself?”
“It’s actually true. He wouldn’t be thinking that Yin Wanxun has already left and dared to come to the Martial Emperor Domain, right?”
“Quickly! Quickly! Notify everyone! Since he was noticed by so many people, can he escape today? Unless he discards his pride as an expert and flees.”
“Exactly. Fleeing now is equivalent to admitting defeat, and it will only cause everyone in the world to look down upon him!”
Clamorous noise resounded without end. Some displayed doubt, others sneered with disdain, and some ran hastily to notify their friends and companions. The atmosphere was chaotic.
These fellows seem to be even more excited than me…
This thought flashed in Chen Xi’s heart before he tossed it to the back of his head, and then he flashed towards the distant training arena. This time, he’d naturally come for the same of welcoming the battle, so it couldn’t be any better than Yin Wanxun hadn’t left!
In next to no time, the experts in the vicinity of the training arenas heard of Chen Xi’s arrival, and they instantly rushed to the arenas on the fifth level. Moreover, even some experts that were in battle on the arenas had abandoned their battles before turning around to join the army of spectators.
In the current Martial Emperor Domain, if it was in terms of those with the greatest reputation, then it was naturally Yin Miaomiao, Jiang Zhuliu, Gu Yueming, and the others. However, if it was in terms of reproach, then it was undoubtedly Chen Xi.
He’d defeated Yin Hun who was at the initial-stage of the Mysterious Immortal Realm while at the initial-stage of the Heavenly Immortal Realm, and he’d created history that was unprecedented in the past thousand years.
Similarly, he’d defeated Yan Ping and proved his strength once more, causing his ranking to rise steadily like a bamboo shoot after the rain and arrive at the ranks of the top two hundred.
However, it was such an extraordinary genius that spoke shamelessly about challenging Yin Miaomiao that was ranked at the third position now. This naturally sparked a controversy, and in the opinion of most experts, he was an ignorant and arrogant fellow.
Especially in the recent period of time, the delayed battle between him and Yin Wanxun aroused the displeasure of the experts that had been waiting in the Martial Emperor Domain to watch the show, and it similarly caused a great controversy.
At this moment, when they saw him finally show himself, it naturally caused an uproar.
So when Chen Xi arrived at the arenas on the fifth level, he saw a dense group of figures that tightly packed the surroundings of the arena where he fought on that day, and it was a rather magnificent sight.
“This fellow has finally come. He still has some backbone.”
“Hmph! He’s giving his life away anyway. Didn’t you hear? Yin Wanxun intends to blast apart his soul and make him an idiot.”
“Stop the fucking sarcastic comments. What if he’s scared away? Or even if he isn’t scared away, what if he admits defeat to Yin Wanxun? Then would we have a show to watch?”
Various noisy voices rose and fell in the surroundings, yet they were unable to affect Chen Xi’s state of mind. His gaze directly passed through the crowd and locked onto Yin Wanxun’s figure at the front.
Yin Wanxun seemed to be very calm. Even if he’d been waiting for a month, it seemed to have not exhausted his patience. When he saw Chen Xi arrive, Yin Wanxun just revealed a ghastly smile that was icy cold and vicious.
“Kid, dragging out your life for a month is enough. Come up and receive your death.” Yin Wanxun spoke coldly before he turned around and leaped up onto the arena, and then he stood there with his arms crossed before his chest.
“Go on, what’re you standing there for?” Someone couldn’t refrain from shouting at Chen Xi.
“Get up there!”
Before long, all the experts in the surroundings started shouting in unison, and it formed an orderly ocean of voices, and they revealed ridiculing expressions while they seemed as if they wished to see the world burn and watch the show.
Chen Xi couldn’t help but shake his head when he saw this. He walked step by step onto the arena in an orderly manner and a calm and composed expression, and he revealed a steady and extraordinary bearing.
Once he decided to fight, his mind would enter into an empty and indifferent state, causing external factors to be unable to affect his mind and body. This was a sort of mentality in combat that he’d tempered in the countless battles he’d experienced over the years, and it was a type of instinct!
