“Chen Xi is probably going to lose for sure.” When he saw Chen Xi’s horrifying appearance of fighting bravely while bathed in blood, the Civil Marquis couldn’t help but sigh. “Qing Xiuyi has sacrificed her lifespan and offered sacrifice to the light, and her might is so strong that even a Rebirth Realm cultivator has to avoid her. Yet this kid is charging forward bravely with the intention of risking his life desperately. Is this any different from courting death?”
“Yes. Up until this point of the battle, Chen Xi actually seems to have lost his reason and made such a mistake. It’s truly a pity.” The other Earthly Immortal Realm experts shook their heads and sighed successively.
Chen Xi display earlier was extremely breathtaking. He’d combined the eight great sword moves of the Myriad Convergence Sword Scripture and arrived at the essence of the Sword Dao, causing all of them to arouse their love for geniuses. At this moment, when they saw him fight desperately like a cornered beast while in a hopeless situation and was on the verge of losing, they were rather unable to bear to see this happen.
How great was the discerning gazes of these old fellows?
When Chen Xi disregarded his safety and still charged towards Qing Xiuyi, they’d discerned that Chen Xi had already fallen into danger. The Flames of Sacred Sacrifice were from the quintessence energies of light, they were utterly not something he was capable of resisting at this moment, and his actions were no different that courting death.
Actually, it wasn’t just them, when they saw Chen Xi’s appearance of being bathed in blood, even the other cultivators in Silken City had discerned that Chen Xi’s situation had become critical.
“Alas, the footsteps of this dark horse called Chen Xi are going to stop here.”
“What a terrifying Qing Xiuyi, this level of strength is simply heaven defying!”
“Chen Xi is finished…”
Everyone revealed an expression of being unable to bear to see what would happen next.
At this moment, most of the people had already affirmed that Qing Xiuyi would win without a doubt, and at the same time, she would become the number one ranked in the Allstar Meeting this time, become the best amongst her peers, and reign supreme. As for Chen Xi…he could only move back and take the second.
“Chen Xi…” At this moment, the hearts of Ya Qing, Zhen Liuqing, Fan Yunlan, Daoist Wen Xuan, Duanmu Ze, and all the others burned with anxiety, and they were nervous to the point their hearts tightened.
It was at this moment when everyone thought Chen Xi would lose for sure that a strand of a clear and deep sword howl sounded out abruptly. At the beginning, it was low to the point it couldn’t be heard, but in a split second, it exploded out to resound in the heavens and the earth. After that, the sword howl surged like the divine lightning that struck down from the nine heavens, and it exploded out to the point the ear drums of everyone present ached and almost deafened!
What has happened?
Everyone including the Earthly Immortal Realm experts were astounded.
Swoosh! Swoosh! Swoosh!
Before everyone could recover from their shock, numerous sword lights suddenly soared out from all over Silken City. It was numerous swords that seemed to have been controlled by a shapeless hand, and they involuntarily floated up in mid air while droning in unison, and it seemed as if they were prostrating themselves in worship towards a king of swords.
“Shit! My sword!”
“My sword has lost control as well!”
“Preposterous! The treasured sword I’ve nurtured for a few tens of years has actually flown away for no reason or rhyme!”
Everyone was shocked when they saw the swords they carried had suddenly flown off by themselves, and when they raised their heads to look over, they saw countlessly swords floating in midair while droning. It was like a black mass of dark clouds, and a rough count put them at least at a few tens of thousands.
If one looked down from the sky, one would notice that these tens of thousands of swords were neatly distributed in a circular shape, like the guards that stood in a narrow lane to respectfully greet the arrival of their king, and they revealed a trace of a sincere and reverent solemn aura.
Shockingly, the place the ‘king’ had appeared was the Devilbane Arena.
Swoosh!Instantly, the gazes of everyone present shot towards the Devilbane Arena in unison.
However, they saw that on the arena, Chen Xi was completely bathed in blood with countless scars on his body, causing him to seem like a man made of blood, but his backbone was still straight like a sword, and the space between his brows was filled with a fierce and resolute expression.
He was like a peerless sword that had been unsheathed!
The arena beneath Chen Xi’s feet shattered into powder at a speed visible to the naked eye, and it formed a circular pit that had sharp edges. The edges of the pit were spreading towards the surroundings with a shocking speed.
It swept through the arena with unstoppable might!
At the same time, the Talisman Armament in his hand emitted a howl that was clear, melodious, and shook past the nine heavens. The blade of the sword emitted infinite brilliant lights as a terrifying Sword Insight instantly enveloped the entirety of Silken City!
“One that goes by the sword would rather die than yield, rather break apart than bend. My heart is like the sword, and the heart of the sword is like me.”
“I walked out from darkness, a road full of misfortune, a road full of thorns, yet I never cowered. If the sky obstructs me, I’ll slaughter this sky; if the earth blocks my path, then I’ll annihilate this earth; if the Dao doesn’t accept me, then I’ll obliterate this Dao!
“Light? Is it anything worthy of mention?”
Under the flabbergasted gazes of everyone present, the Talisman Armament in Chen Xi’s hand slashed down.
What sort of strike was this?
A light strike that seemed as if it was struck out casually, devoid of the slightest strand of the aura of battle, and it was even without the slightest sound, utterly silent. Yet when one’s gaze encountered this sword light, it seemed as if time and space was imprisoned and fallen into decay, and even one’s soul couldn’t help but shiver lightly as a cold stream that couldn’t be contained flowed throughout one’s body, causing one to feel as if one had fallen into an icy pit.
However, when this sword light slashed down, it was as if a thunderclap had risen from the ground, and the ground seemed as if it was struck fiercely by a sledgehammer. The arena crumbled as even the entire Devilbane Arena shook fiercely, and then a hole shattered open with a bang!
The copious and unstoppable Sword Insight from it was like a steel wall that swept out from the Devilbane Arena, and all that had slightly weak strength seemed as if they were struck by a heavy object and were fiercely blasted flying! Even if it was figures as formidable as Zhao Qinghe, Huangfu Changtian, and the others, they were almost unable to stand straight, and they rocked unsteadily and strained every nerve before barely being able to stabilize their bodies, yet the blood in their faces had vanished completely.
Even if it was them, they couldn’t help but arouse boundless fear when facing such a terrifying Sword Insight.
On the other side, the beards and hair of all the Earthly Immortal Realm experts fluttered. They were extremely shocked and excited as a term had appeared in the minds of all of them, yet they didn’t dare confirm it.
High above in the sky, Emperor Chu raised his head abruptly as he stood up from the throne for the first time. His figure was stalwart, his clothes fluttered, and his eyes emitted a myriad of divine lights as he muttered to himself. “Enlightened Sword Heart, Enlightened Sword Heart, this is the natural endowment to become a peerless Sword Immortal…”
When the lights dissipated and the scene before them appeared in their eyes, most people couldn’t help but be dumbstruck. Practically more than half of the Devilbane Arena that was personally refined by Emperor Chu had been destroyed!But when everyone recovered from their shock, they glanced towards the location of the arena at the first possible moment.
No, there wasn’t an arena there any longer.
There was only a figure that was tall and straight like a spear and bathed in blood, and a beautiful figure that had a countenance that was white as a sheet of paper and clothes that were tainted with blood, whereas in the surroundings of the two people was horrifying spatial turbulence.
“Pu!” Qing Xiuyi couldn’t hold it back any longer and a mouthful of blood sprayed out from her mouth, and then her figure shook as she almost fell from midair. Her vital energy was in chaos, and it was already on the verge of collapse.
“Qing Xiuyi, you’ve lost!” An extremely hoarse voice escaped Chen Xi’s mouth. There was no happiness, no excitement, and only boundless indifference. It was like the casual strike of his from before, it had already shed all complication and returned to simplicity.
“You…” Qing Xiuyi seemed to be unable to accept this, and she struggled to stabilize her body before flashing out.
Chen Xi remained standing without moving as he awaited her attack.
But Qing Xiuyi flew halfway before suddenly falling. There was already not the slightest bit of energy left within her entire body, and that moment from before was only a sudden spurt before collapse.
“Chen Xi is victorious in this battle!” Emperor Chu instantly judged before stretching out his hand to swing out a ball of golden light that wrapped Qing Xiuyi and took her out of the Devilbane Arena. He’s already discerned that if he didn’t swiftly rescue her, then an injury that was impossible to heal would remain in Qing Xiuyi’s body.
At this moment, as the voice of Emperor Chu reverberated in their ears, the gazes of everyone in Silken City had converged onto the figure that was tall and straight like a sword.
The entire scene was perfectly silent.
Chen Xi’s peerless sword strike that seemed like a sovereign that had descended to the world had been deeply branded into the minds of all of them, and they wouldn’t dare forget it for a few tens of years, a few hundred of years, or even their entire lifetimes.
