The sword qi was like the tide and carried a myriad of blazing streams like a raging silver river, and there were even the phenomena of the alternating between sun and moon and surging thunderstorms within it, causing its impetus to be shocking to the extreme.
Since Chen Xi cultivated the Myriad Convergence Sword Scripture to perfection and achieved the height of converging a myriad of variations into a single strike, every single sword strike of his wasn't constrained by certain moves or Dao Insight, and they were executed according to his will, yet every single move contained the traces of Grand Daos and was terrifying to the extreme.
For example, when he slashed out this sword strike at this moment, it possessed a resolute imposing aura of slashing apart the wind and waves as it pressed forward with indomitable will, and it was all powerful and possessed oppressive fierceness. It was like the heart of a sword cultivator, nothing couldn't stop it, nor could anything taint it, and it was translucent, bright, and resolute in slaughter!
This was the state of the 'Enlightened Sword Heart.'
There were a myriad of sword cultivators in the world, yet only one in a million was capable of attaining this state.
Lu Tianze felt suffocated when facing this exceedingly terrifying strike. He felt the blood in his entire body was on the verge of being frozen and shattered into pieces by this ghastly and chilly Sword Insight while great terror arose in his heart, and he felt a powerless feeling as if he was on the verge of death.
But it was exactly under the stimulation of death that his survival instinct aroused his potential, causing an expression of ruthlessness to flash within his eyes, and then he'd already soared into the sky while the Snowdragon Blade in his hand slashed out madly at the same time.
Swoosh! Swoosh! Swoosh!
The blade lights were like snow that sealed the sky in ice. Rumble! An enormous snow white Chiwen charged out abruptly from within the blade lights. It was completely suffused with bright, clear, and chilly light, its eyes were crimson red, and it was proud and indifferent.
The Chiwen was a formidable divine beast of the ancient times that was supposedly the son of the ancestor of dragons. At this moment, the mighty aura of a dragon that looked down on the world flew out along with the blade light, and it caused the heavens and the earth to be cast into shadow.
All the spectators exclaimed with admiration in this heart. Lu Tianze lives up to being a 4th tempering Rebirth Realm expert as the combat strength he exploded out with while holding the Quasi Immortal Artifact, Snowdragon Blade, can't be underestimated.
The snow white Chiwen that surged out explosively in midair instantly collided with the sword qi that struck right at it, and the scene that appeared after this was like the scene of an ox being skillfully sliced up by a butcher.
The sword qi that contained the traces of Grand Daos directly cut through the snow white Chiwen and sliced it apart before it dissipated.
"What!?" Everyone hadn't even recovered from their previous shock when they saw this scene, causing them to be instantly shocked to the point their minds shook, and they almost forgot to breathe.
No matter what, Lu Tianze was the Crown Prince of the Darxuan Dynasty, an expert at the 4th tempering of the Rebirth Realm, so he was entirely capable of surmounting levels to do battle while having a Quasi Immortal Artifact in hand. Yet now, he was easily suppressed by Chen Xi!
This wisp of sword qi that Chen Xi executed was vast and gorgeous like a flowing river of stars, and it was beautiful to the point it caused one's heart to tremble while its lethality was terrifying to the point it caused one's scalp to go numb.
"How could this be?" Lu Tianze was unable to accept this, and he suddenly roared furiously as he waved his blade to attack once more.
For a time, the heavens and the earth in the surroundings were covered in snow as ice crystals fluttered about in the sky and condensed into a 3km long snow white Chiwen that roared proudly in the sky once more. The Chiwen was covered densely by dragon scales, its crimson eyes seemed to be burning, and its whiskers fluttered about as if it had really appeared once more in the world.
Subsequently, it directly attacked Chen Xi.
"Slash!" The distant Chen Xi shouted coldly and indifferently.
Under the combination of the Enlightened Sword Heart, the Skysorrow Sword exploded out once more. This time, the sword qi seemed like the plow of the heavens, and it plowed out a striking trail on the sky, and it simply seemed as if it was plowing the heavens.
The unparalleled sword qi plowed the sky as it descended. Even though the snow white Chiwen was lifelike as if it was real and the blade qi even possessed monstrous might that sealed the heavens and earth in ice, before this sword strike with an aura that shot into the skies, it was directly plowed apart into two pieces before collapsing and shattering.
The spectators were bedazzled by this scene and remained speechless for a long time.
"Impossible! We're both utilizing Quasi Immortal Artifacts and my cultivation is higher than yours by more than a level, yet how could I possibly be unable to defeat you?" Lu Tianze's eyes were filled with disbelief, and then an insane and savage expression gushed up onto his face. "I don't believe it! How can a little ant from an ordinary Dynasty like you be a match for me!?"
"Snow brambles, enclose the heavens and the earth!" He roared furiously and hysterically, and he exerted all his might to execute this strike.
For a time, the snow and blade light that covered the heavens transformed into bramble chains that covered the heavens and the earth before condensing into layer after layer of cages that locked down the surroundings before crushing down at Chen Xi.
But right at this moment, a pair of wings that emitted starlight suddenly appeared on the back of the distant Chen Xi, and then the wings flapped abruptly, causing Chen Xi to directly charge over like a strand of flowing light.
Sword qi flew out both horizontally and vertically from the Skysorrow Sword in Chen Xi's hand as he flashed repeatedly in midair.
Chen Xi's current body refinement cultivation had already attained the Rebirth Realm, and he'd even cultivated a formidable technique like the Universe Starslayer Bodyforging Arts. So long as his Soul Core wasn't obliterated, he was capable of reconstructing his body with a single thought. Thus, not to mention Lu Tianze, Chen Xi even dared to go against an expert at the perfection-stage of the Rebirth Realm.
Bang! Bang! Bang!
All the snow brambles and cages that covered the heavens and the earth were shattered, and they were utterly incapable of obstructing Chen Xi's figure that charged forward.
"No!!" Lu Tianze was completely beaten to the point of being terrified, and he tried to dodge in horror.
But how could he escape before the Starsky Wings that were entirely capable of comparing to the technique of teleportation!?
Chen Xi's left hand directly stretched out like the hand of a Fiendgod and directly squeezed Lu Tianze's throat, causing his throat to emit coughing sounds, yet be utterly unable to speak.
Since the beginning of the battle until now, it had only been a short moment. But the dangers and terrors of the battle caused the hearts of all the spectators to surge up and down to the point they were unable to restrain their feelings. At this moment, as they looked at the tall figure that possessed an oppressive imposing aura like a Fiendgod, they couldn't refrain from arousing deep fear and terror in their hearts.
"This is the great figure you didn't hesitate to betray the Darchu Dynasty for?" Chen Xi held Lu Tianze by the throat as he turned around and looked coldly at Huangfu Changtian and Yu Xuanchen.
His voice was calm yet when it entered into the ears of Huangfu Changtian and Yu Xuanchen, it wasn't inferior to a thunderclap, and it shook them to the point their lips trembled and they were scared out of their wits.
Earlier, Lu Tianze was absolutely an existence that they could only look up to and play up to in their opinion, and they didn't hesitate to betray the Darchu Dynasty and cruelly kill their companions for the sake of obtaining Lu Tianze's acknowledgment and join Lu Tianze's forces. However, now, when they saw Lu Tianze being held in Chen Xi's hand like a dead dog, the depression and hatred in their hearts had already reached its limit.
At this moment, both of them were utterly in despair.
Being held by the neck by Chen Xi like a little chick in front of everyone caused Lu Tianze to have an expression of being overwhelmed by shame and resentment, and he was suffocated to the point his face was completely red and he almost spat blood.
He struggled violently, yet even though Chen Xi's left hand seemed ordinary, it contained a strength capable of tearing a mountain apart, causing Lu Tianze to be utterly incapable of struggling free of it, and he seemed like a helpless wooden puppet that was pitiable and in a sorry state instead.
"No! No!" Lu Tianze's eyes were red. Such humiliation was simply more painful than being slapped in public, and it caused this Crown Prince of a first-rate Dynasty to feel unprecedented shame.
But compared to this shame, the terror from being on the verge of death drowned his heart and mind. He was truly terrified of Chen Xi, and Chen Xi was simply like a cold and emotionless devil in his heart.
"Don't kill me. I can give you anything that you want, and all I ask is that you spare me. I swear to the heavens that I won't seek revenge on you ever again!" When he thought of how he hadn't even seen how the Dark Reverie looked, yet was about to die at Chen Xi's hand, Lu Tianze instantly seemed as if he'd gone mad, and he roared and cried out loudly.
"Do you think that you're capable of giving me what I want?" A trace of dense ridicule suffused the corners of Chen Xi's mouth, and he exerted force with his left hand as he spoke.
At the same time that he broke Lu Tianze's neck, energy stretched out from his palm to completely annihilate Lu Tianze's Soul Core, causing him to be completely annihilated.
Lu Tianze's corpse fell to the ground, causing blood and flesh to spray out as it became mutilated from the fall, and it jolted awake Huangfu Changtian and Yu Xuanchen who were in great terror.
"Chen Xi, I was wrong. I beg you, please forgive me. I utterly didn't think of killing the member of our Darchu Dynasty after joining the Darxuan Dynasty, and it was they who forced me to do this." Yu Xuanchen shivered as he pleaded with a miserable voice.
Huangfu Changtian forcefully refrained himself from begging for mercy despite feeling extreme terror, and he gritted his teeth as he said, "Chen Xi, kill me if you want. But you have to think it through clearly. Once my father finds out about this matter, your Chen Clan will surely be completely destroyed. At that time, even if you enter the Dark Reverie, you'd have lost your loved ones forever. Do you want to see such an outcome happen?!"
Two muffled bangs resounded out at practically the exact same moment, and Huangfu Changtian and Yu Xuanchen's heads were smashed apart like watermelons before their corpses crashed to the ground.
It wasn't Chen Xi that did it but Fan Yunlan. After she killed the two of them, she arrived by Chen Xi's side and explained. "I'm truly sick of their faces. You wouldn't blame me, right?"
Chen Xi shook his head and said, "They deserved death. I wouldn't have made things difficult for them like this if they only betrayed the Darchu Dynasty, but they helped outsiders bully our companions, and it was too despicable. So their death is nothing to be regretted."
"I was worried you wouldn't be able to do it." Fan Yunlan smiled lightly at the side.
Chen Xi smiled, and then he swept his gaze towards the people in the surroundings.
Even though he didn't speak a word, yet the icy coldness in his gaze terrified everyone to the point they didn't dare continue staying here, and they dispersed towards the surroundings. If they still didn't leave, then it would be too unfortunate if this fellow, Chen Xi, that killed without batting an eyelid, were to take them as companions of Lu Tianze.
"Since Lu Tianze is dead, there's no one controlling this northeast area of Primeval City. Let's go. We'll head to the territory of the Dartang Dynasty to call over the members of our Darchu Dynasty, and we entirely don't have to stay beneath the roof of another and act according to the will of another." Chen Xi withdrew his gaze and grabbed Fan Yunlan's hand before flashing towards the distance.
Her hand being grabbed by Chen Xi caused Fan Yunlan's body to stiffen, and then a wisp of indescribable happiness gushed out abruptly from her heart. She held a smile on her face that radiated beauty, and she followed obediently by Chen Xi's side with while feeling delighted in her heart.
On this day, Primeval City fell into an uproar.
"Five experts of the Darchu Dynasty successively ascended the top 20 of the Warsoul Tablet, and Chen Xi even ascended the first ranking to look down upon all experts!"
"The forces that occupied the northeast area of the city were completely annihilated. All the experts of the Darxuan, Darqin, Darjin, and Darqian Dynasties were annihilated, and they completely lost all candidates to enter the Dark Reverie, whereas only a single person caused all this — Chen Xi!
The numerous major incidents that happened today and shocked the hearts of all were related to a single name, Chen Xi!
This name seemed to possess strange magic and was known by all the cultivators in the city overnight, and it became the hottest topic of discussion in the city that everyone took delight in talking about.
