This was an immortal beast that Chen Xi had never seen. It seemed like a lion or a tiger, its fur was silvery and suffused with strands of strange talisman markings, and even though it stood there silently, it emanated an overbearing aura that assaulted the face.
It was like an emperor of beasts that possessed peerless ferocity.
“A Starsoul Beast!”
“My god! Your Liang Clan actually fostered this beast!”When they saw this beast, both Luo Zifeng and Gu Yutang exclaimed simultaneously with shock while their faces were covered in disbelief. With their experience and disposition, they were actually shocked because of a beast, and this obviously showed how extraordinary this Starsoul Beast was.
Chen Xi was shocked as well when he heard this name, and he suddenly recalled that according to rumor, that the phenomenon of a ‘tide of stars’ would erupt every few thousand years in the starry sky of the Immortal Dimension. At that time, the starry sky would rise and fall like a tide, and numerous meteors would descend.
Every single meteor contained precious immortal materials that were unimaginable precious and priceless.
Most shocking of it all was that some meteors would develop some rare treasures related to the soul, and the Starsoul Beast was one of them.
However, it was extremely difficult to obtain a meteor because it would shatter into pieces once it fell to the ground, causing it to become completely useless instead. Only by capturing it with great strength before it fell to the ground would one be able to preserve the immortal material or treasure contained within it.
It was common knowledge that a meteor was enormous and comparable to the size of a small world! If one intended to capture it, then one’s strength had to at least be at the Saint Immortal Realm.
Moreover, it at least required five or more Saint Immortal Realm experts working together!
Now it would seem like the Liang Clan had surely captured one of these meteors, and this meteor even contained a rather rare Starsoul Beast!
It was no wonder that Luo Zifeng and Gu Yutang would exclaim with shock like this and feel disbelief.
“This Starsoul Beast has just been hatched not too long ago. According to the tests of my Liang Clan’s elders, its bloodline innately possesses the Grand Dao Laws of Devour, Wind, Fire, and Star. Its natural endowment and potential aren’t inferior in the slightest to the four-symbol saint beasts and some primeval variant beasts. Moreover, he might even surpass them.”
Liang Bing stroked the head of this Starsoul Beast before she slowly explained to Chen Xi. “For example, according to rumor, the talisman marking structures in the first of the Seven Forbidden Talismans you know of, the Dance of Stars Talisman, was created from the skin and bones of the Starsoul Beast.”
The Grand Dao Laws of Wind, Fire, Star, and Devour!
With Chen Xi’s composure, he couldn’t help but be moved when he heard of the innate Laws possessed by this Starsoul Beast. The first three Grand Dao Laws were normal, but they key was that the last Law, the Laws of Devour, was truly too rare!
Because he similarly had grasped the profundities of Devour, so he was very clearly aware that it was the ultimate inheritance of the primeval divine beast, the Roc. If it wasn’t for the bone of the Roc that his Third Senior Brother gave to him in the past, even he would be unable to grasp the profundities of Devour.
Moreover, throughout the years since he started cultivating, he’d see too many Grand Dao profundities, yet he’d never seen anyone grasp the Dao Insight of Devour, whereas this Starsoul Beast innately possessed this Grand Dao Laws. Thus, this obviously showed how rare it was.
Luo Zifeng and Gu Yutang were clearly aware that practically every single Starsoul Beast born in the Immortal Dimension possessed the talisman diagrams related to the first of the Seven Forbidden Talismans, the Dance of Stars Talisman.
But they as well had never expected that this Starsoul Beast Liang Bing possessed would actually possess the Laws of Devour. If news of this were to be spread, then it would probably cause a might uproar in the Southbridge Continent!
But right after that, both of them were stunned, and then they spoke with difficulty. “Liang Bing, you wouldn’t be intending to give this beast to Chen Xi, right?”
Liang Bing said casually in a carefree manner. “Why not?”
Luo Zifeng and Gu Yutang gasped as they felt the Liang Clan really went all out because such extravagance was something that caused even them to be extremely astounded.
After all, once a beast like this were to grow up, then it would absolutely become a form of formidable support, and it was invaluable.
Chen Xi was stunned. Earlier, he felt that the treasures Luo Zifeng and Gu Yutang intended to give him were too precious, and he originally intended to refuse. But never had he imagined that Liang Bing actually intended to give him a Starsoul Beast, and it was even one that possessed the Laws of Devour. How could he accept this?
But right when he was about to refuse, Liang Bing said frankly, “You must take this Starsoul Beast because no one besides you can tame it.”
“Why?” Chen Xi was bewildered.
Liang Bing shrugged, and she was slightly helpless as well as she said, “The reason is the Law of Devour. Once this beast matures, it’ll take everything to be an enemy and swallow everything unless the Law of Devour it possessed was eliminated. But in that way, it would be equivalent to losing natural talent that allowed it to be compared with divine beasts.”
Liang Bing paused for a moment and continued. “Thus, my Liang Clan is having an extreme headache regarding it, and we don’t know how to deal with his Starsoul Beast. So I can only hand it over to you to be tamed and raised.”
After speaking about so much, she finally spoke of the true reason.
But Chen Xi came to an understanding instead, and he laughed bitterly as he said, “You’re saying that it’ll take me as one of its own?”
Liang Bing chuckled and nodded seriously. “It can’t be helped. Amongst all the people I know, only you’ve grasped the profundities of Devour, so only you might be able to tame it.”
At this moment, Luo Zifeng and Gu Yutang came to an understanding as well, and both of them glanced at Chen Xi with horror. They seemed to have never expected that Chen Xi had actually grasped the Laws of Devour!
This kid really concealed his ability!
Both of them were shocked in their hearts while they felt Chen Xi was even more unfathomable. The Laws of Devour was an energy of the Laws that was sufficient to defy the heavens. It swallowed everything and transformed all energy in the world for one’s own use. It was beyond formidable.
According to their knowledge, only the primeval Roc Clan innately possessed this profundity. Yet now, not a single true Roc could be found in the entire Immortal Dimension, so the profundities of Devour were practically lost.
But Chen Xi…actually possessed it!
How could they not be shocked?
Chen Xi understood the meaning within their gazes, and he couldn’t help but rub his nose as he said, “I only know its Dao Insight, and I haven’t condensed it into a Law.”
Luo Zifeng and Gu Yutang couldn’t help but roll their eyes in unison when they heard this. You’ve only grasped the Devour Dao Insight? Be content! Others can’t even comprehend a trace of it even if they wanted to!
“Quickly give it a try. If it doesn’t work, then I intend to ask my clan’s ancestor to eliminate the Laws of Devour that it possesses. Even though its natural talent would be reduced greatly, it would be a good immortal beast in the end.” Liang Bing walked forward and brought to Starsoul Beast before Chen Xi.
Chen Xi thought for a moment before he stopped hesitating. He took a deep breath, and then his body suddenly effused strands of pitch black and deep Dao Insight energy that seemed like vortexes. They carried a terrifying swallowing energy that tore the nearby space to the point it droned.
When looked at from afar, Chen Xi seemed to have transformed into a black hole that was in the depths of the universe, and he seemed capable of devouring everything and emanated an extremely horrifying imposing aura.
This is the Devour Dao Insight? Luo Zifeng and Gu Yutang’s eyes opened wide and were filled with curiosity.
The ferocious and indifferent Starsoul Beast that originally stood there quietly suddenly raised its head and uttered a roar that shook the heavens. Its clear eyes that were like blue gems stared at Chen Xi while revealing a wisp of excitement, hesitation, and wonder.
Its expression seemed as if it had suddenly seen someone close to it, yet it didn’t dare be sure.
Liang Bing was delighted in her heart. This method seems to be working!
The Devour Dao Insight around Chen Xi’s body grew exuberant, and it was like a black hole that was gradually emanating its might.
This caused Luo Zifeng and Gu Yutang to suddenly realize that Chen Xi hadn’t just grasped the profundities of Devour, he’d obviously attained perfection in this Dao Insight, and Chen Xi only needed some time to condense it into the Laws of Devour!
The Starsoul Beast grew even more excited. In the end, it couldn’t refrain from walking step by step towards Chen Xi.
At the same time, it emanated a strand of the energy of Devour as well. It transformed into a black vortex that coiled around its body, and it was even more profound and formidable than the Dao Insight Chen Xi emanated. It was the true Law of Devour!
The two energies of Devour encountered each other yet didn’t cause any collision. It was instead like snow that melted into water, and they merged together and supported each other as if they coexisted.
At this instant, Chen Xi clearly sensed that his Devour Dao Insight was actually condensing and strengthening at an alarming speed, and it was on the verge of transforming into the energy of the Laws.
Moreover, all of this occurred in an instant!
Unfortunately, this transformation stopped in the end. The reason was that the Grand Dao Laws he’d grasped now had already arrived at the limits of the Heavenly Immortal Realm, and unless he advanced into the Mysterious Immortal Realm, otherwise he would be unable to condense another Law.
Chen Xi shook his head and stopped thinking about it. He lowered his head and saw that the Starsoul Beast was shaking its head and rubbing it on his leg with an intimate expression.
Chen Xi couldn’t help but rub the Starsoul Beast’s head, and this action caused the Starsoul Beast to become even more meek. It didn’t emanate that arrogant and overbearing aura that assaulted the face any longer.
When they saw this, Liang Bing and the others grinned.
They knew very well that this was a form of fortune. Even though the Starsoul Beast was found by the Liang Clan, yet it didn’t suit the Liang Clan, and it could only belong to Chen Xi. It couldn’t be forced.
“What’s it called?” Chen Xi raised his head and asked Liang Bing.
Liang Bing was stunned, and she actually revealed a wisp of shyness as if she was embarrassed to say it. In the end, she said in a low voice, “Mmm, I’ve always called it Little Starry.”
Little Starry? Luo Zifeng and Gu Yutang’s eyes opened wide while their faces flushed. They were almost unable to restrain their laughter as they’d never imagined that an icy cold and proud beauty like Liang Bing who was filled with the aura of a queen would give the name Little Starry to an immortal beast.
“Don’t suffocate yourselves.” Liang Bing glanced coldly at the two of them, and her gaze was like an icy cold and horrifying blade.
Luo Zifeng and Gu Yutang glanced at each other when they heard this, and then their expressions turned solemn as they nodded in unison. “What a good and domineering name!”
“Hypocrites!” Liang Bing grunted coldly.
“Alright, then I’ll call it Starry in the future.” Chen Xi nodded. He was laughing in his heart as well, but he didn’t reveal it as he was afraid Liang Bing would feel embarrassed.
Liang Bing’s expression eased up greatly when she saw Chen Xi didn’t change the Starsoul Beast’s name, and she said, “A piece of jade is useless if not cut and polished, a beast is not overbearing if not raised properly. Starry is yours from now on, and you have to take good care of it.”
As she finished speaking, a wisp of unwillingness flashed in the depths of Liang Bing’s eyes. She wasn’t unwilling to let the Starsoul Beast go, but she was clearly aware that Chen Xi was about to leave…
