The 100 Martial Dao Divine Thrones emerged in the Martial Dao Doman and emitted boundless golden lights.
This was the third test of the Allstar Meeting, a test of 3,600 people competing to obtain 100 places. Not only would those that succeed be able to enter the next round of the tests, they would even be able to obtain a Dao Grade martial technique from the divine throne, and it could be said to be killing two birds with one stone.
On the other hand, those that failed only had a single outcome, to be eliminated!
At this moment, the originally silent square didn’t go into an uproar as expected, and it strangely became even more quiet, unusually quiet, and not a single people made a rash move.
Because they knew that if they didn’t possess sufficient strength, then not only would they be unable to occupy a divine throne from being the first to make a move, they would instead draw death onto themselves.
But this silence didn’t continue for long.
After merely a short moment, under the focus of countless gazes, Qing Xiuyi who was at the extreme front suddenly made a move, and her clothed fluttered as she moved like a dreamlike wisp of smoke that instantly arrived at one of divine thrones that were the closest to the sacrificial altar before sitting down cross-legged on it.
Swoosh! Swoosh! Swoosh!
At practically the exact same instant, the Merak Pavilion’s Zhao Qinghe, the Wise King’s Estate’s Huangfu Changtian, the Mistwater Pavilion’s Zhen Liuqing, the Young Princess Huangfu Qingying, and the others moved out to respectively seize a divine throne that was closest to the sacrificial altar.
When they saw this scene, the eyes of many people became indeterminate, but in the end, no one dared to rashly say something. Because they knew that no matter if it was in terms of strength or the powers standing behind them, it was sufficient to support these people to sit where they sat without the slightest obstruction.
The reason was that these young experts were the publicly acknowledged top geniuses of the Darchu Dynasty’s cultivation world, leading figures in the younger generation that were exceedingly dazzling. Under these circumstances, who would dare go against these people?
In only an instant, seven of the 100 divine thrones were already occupied.
Amongst them were another two people that Chen Xi didn’t know, and they were extremely unfamiliar to him. One was a violet haired young man with a cold expression and a thin figure, and strands of lightning arcs appeared as his eyes opened and closed, whereas the other was a grinning young fatty with a bloated figure, and they kept an extremely low profile. But since they were able to be in the first batch that seized a divine throne and didn’t encounter the covetous gazes of others, their strengths were surely extraordinary.
These two people were actually able to rival Huangfu Changtian and the others… There are really numerous experts in the world. Chen Xi sighed with emotion in his heart.
“Brother Chen, you arrived slightly late and perhaps you don’t know those two people. They’re called Yu Xuanchen and Ling Yu. Both of them possess extremely extraordinary strengths and are disciples that were personally taught by old freaks that live in seclusion from the world.” The nearby Wang Daoxu explained. “Early on the first and second tests, the two of them had revealed abilities that surpassed the others, causing their strengths to have already obtained the acknowledgement of most people. Thus, they were able to safely seize a divine throne.”
Chen Xi came to a sudden understanding. He’d once heard many people say before the Allstar Meeting began that because of the Dragon Transformation Pool, numerous old freaks that lived in seclusion from the world had sent out their disciples to participate in the Allstar Meeting this time.
Obviously, this Yu Xuanchen and Ling Yu were outstanding disciples taught by two old freaks.
“Let’s go. Let’s make a move together and seize this moment that everyone is still filled with worry. Otherwise, we’ll probably fall into a great chaotic battle.” Young Master Zhou spoke out abruptly.
Chen Xi raised his eyes and swept his gaze towards his surroundings. He saw that amongst the people by his side, besides Zhen Liuqing and Huangfu Qingying who’d made a move first, An Qianyu, Wang Daoxu, Hua Mobei, Wang Zhenfeng, and Young Master Zhou were already prepared to make a move.
Chen Xi turned around to look at Fan Yunlan by his side, and when she nodded to indicate she was prepared, he agreed right away. “Alright, let’s make a move together!”
The situation at this moment was precisely as Young Master Zhou had said, most of the people were filled with worries and no one dared make a move first for a long time as they were deeply afraid of becoming a target of all that was surrounded and annihilated.
Moreover, if he relied on his strength and the strength of the others at this moment to move out jointly, there would probably be no one that dared obstruct them.
Coupled with Zhen Liuqing and Huangfu Qingying had already openly indicated their support for him, Huangfu Chongming, Lin Moxuan, and the others would surely not dare obstruct them at a time like this.
Swish! Swish! Swish!
Without anymore hesitation, Chen Xi and the others moved out, transforming into wisps of flowing lights that flashed towards the divine thrones around the sacrificial altar.
When they saw this, most people present had acted just as Chen Xi had expected, and they didn’t obstruct Chen Xi’s group due to their apprehension towards Chen Xi’s group.
However, before Chen Xi could heave a sigh of relief, Fan Yunlan’s enraged cry sounded out abruptly from behind him, causing his heart to jerk as he swiftly raised his head to look over. He saw Huangfu Chongming, Lin Moxuan, and Xiao Linger had torn through the sky and intended to stop and kill Fan Yunlan with all their might.
“You’re courting death!” Chen Xi suddenly stopped moving in mid air before turning around to charge back towards Fan Yunlan’s side, and his expression was already icy cold and indifferent to the extreme. At the critical moment, these fellows still didn’t know what was good for them and suddenly interfered, and it had already completely enraged him.
“Dammit, these ignorant bastards!”
“Brother Chen, I’ll come assist you!”
Young Master Zhou and the others noticed this scene and shouted out furiously in succession before they turned around with the intention of charging over, but they were stopped by Chen Xi.
“Everyone, go seize a divine throne first. Leave everything else to me! Believe in me!” Chen Xi’s voice was resolute, and it emanated an indisputable feeling.
“Alright. You be careful. You must persist until the end of the competition!”
When they saw Chen Xi’s attitude was so resolute, Young Master Zhou and the others revealed solemn expressions as they knew that they couldn’t say anything further at this time, and they immediately turned around to charge towards a divine throne that was near the sacrificial altar.
After Huangfu Chongming, Lin Moxuan, and Xiao Linger successfully stopped Fan Yunlan, they didn’t continue making a move against her, and they stood in midair as they sneered with their arms crossed before them.
When he saw this scene, Chen Xi instantly understood that these people were making a feint. They were going against Fan Yunlan on the surface, but it was actually for the sake of obstructing Chen Xi from seizing a divine throne!
It was extremely easy to understand why they did this. If they directly made a move against him, then they would completely offend Zhen Liuqing and Huangfu Qingying. But it was different if they made a move against Fan Yunlan because everyone was able to discern that Fan Yunlan wasn’t acquainted with anyone here besides Chen Xi, and it was even to the extent that very few people even knew her identity. So they utterly didn’t have to worry about offending anyone or facing any pressure from going against Fan Yunlan.
Moreover, through this action, they were also able to implicate Chen Xi.
“I’m sorry…” Fan Yunlan spoke in a low voice, and she had a slightly sorry expression.
“There’s no need to say anything further. This enmity had to be deal with sooner or later. Now that I speak of it, it was because of me that you were involved.” Chen Xi patted Fan Yunlan on her shoulder as he consoled, and when he turned around to look at Huangfu Chongming and the others, his face was already covered in killing intent.
Suddenly, Huangfu Chongming started laughing loudly. “I never imagined that you, Chen Xi, are someone that’s filled with affection. For the sake of a beauty, you’re even willing to give up the Martial Dao Divine Throne.”
Lin Moxuan and Xiao Linger laughed endlessly with ridicule as well.
Chen Xi clenched his hand and the pitch black and lusterless Talisman Armament flashed out into appearance.
A sword howl charged into the sky as an aura that was fierce and powerful like a spearhead exploded out with a bang!
“No matter who dares obstruct our footsteps today, I’ll slaughter them all!” Chen Xi’s piercingly cold voice was like a cold wind that swept through the square, and his voice emitted resolution and an undisguised domineering air as his imposing manner reached the clouds.
He understood that he’d offended many people indeed. Besides Huangfu Chongming, Lin Moxuan, and Xiao Linger, there was also Liu Fengchi, Man Hong, and the others, and all these people would surely not allow him to easily seize a Martial Dao Divine Throne.
Coupled with their actions of attacking Fan Yunlan, it had caused him to arouse killing intent in his heart, and he wasn’t willing to continue keeping a low profile. Since a battle couldn’t be avoided, then he would kill to his heart’s content. What was there to be afraid of?
“This fellow…” As she looked at the figure that held the Talisman Armament in his hand and stood proudly in midair, Fan Yunlan’s beautiful eyes went red and were covered in a layer of watery mist as her nose ached. Chen Xi being able to fight for her caused her to feel that her life wasn’t livid in vain even if she died in the next moment.
“Ignorant fool!” Huangfu Chongming, Lin Moxuan, and Xiao Linger laughed coldly without end. As far as they were concerned, Chen Xi’s actions were like the final roar emitted by a beast that had fallen into a hopeless situation, and it didn’t have the slightest deterrent force.
“This person, Chen Xi, is really a loyal person, and such courage it truly difficult to come by.”
“Unfortunately, his temper is too willful, and he intends to battle Huangfu Chongming and the others. It’s the easiest for geniuses like this to die early. At this moment, without the protection of Zhen Liuqing and Huangfu Qingying, let me see how he winds up the matter today.”
“This fellow is rather arrogant. Every single one of the people that were capable of arriving here are renowned experts, yet this fellow actually proclaimed war to all of his enemies. He’s really overestimating his ability.”
Right when Chen Xi’s voice just resounded out, the surroundings of the square instantly exploded into an uproar as numerous gazes looked towards Chen Xi who was in midair. Some gazes contained admiration, some hostility, and some contained disdain, yet most people sighed and didn’t look favorably upon him.
Even though everyone present had more or less heard of Chen Xi’s reputation, yet the reputation of every single person present wasn’t inferior to him.
Moreover, many people knew that Chen Xi’s enemies weren’t just Huangfu Chongming, Lin Moxuan, and Xiao Linger, and there were also Liu Fengchi, Man Hong, Pei Zhong, Xue Chen, and so on and so forth.
All of these people were Golden Core Realm Core Disciples from various renowned and great sects and were influential figures of the younger generation, and both their strengths and reputation were obvious.
On the other hand, besides the young woman by his side, Chen Xi didn’t have any other assistance, so how would he go against his enemies?
Chen Xi stood in midair as his gaze that was fierce like a blade slowly swept past the crowd that was in an uproar, and he kept silent while his expression remained exactly the same.
Since he’d already decided to do battle, then he would absolutely not allow his will to fight be affected by some sounds of discussions and doubt!
“Everyone, since Chen Xi had proclaimed war against us, how can we not accept his challenge? The enmity between us has really come to the time that it ought to be resolved!”
Within the crowd, a sneer that was filled with resentment resounded out, and then the Whitecrane Sect’s Xue Chen soared into the sky to arrive by Huangfu Chongming’s side.
Swoosh! Swoosh! Swoosh!
Another string of the sound of the sky being torn apart resounded out as Pei Zhong, Liu Fengchi, and Man Hong moved out successively to converge with Huangfu Chongming and the others.
In just an instant, seven people had formed an encirclement around Chen Xi and Fan Yunlan!
