The crimson haired young man had a stalwart figure, white skin, and possessed an extremely handsome and evil appearance. The corners of his mouth were slightly curled upwards, and the innate arrogant and overbearing bearing he possessed caused him to be extremely unusual.
He was precisely Bai Gan from the Violet Thistle Mountain's Bai Clan!
All those years ago in the Darchu Dynasty, the Starnet Palace that was one of the eight great powers of the southern territory's Dragon Lake City had seized Bai Wanqing's daughter, Xixi, and completely offended Bai Wanqing. In the end, it caused their entire sect to be annihilated.
The people that made a move that day was an Earthly Immortal Realm expert called Bai Teng, and the other person was Bai Gan.
Chen Xi still remembered that the Starnet Palace had activated the Nine-Palace Balefulstar Immortal Slaughtering Formation at that time with the intention of annihilating Bai Wanqing, Bai Teng, and Bai Gan. But, in the end, Bai Teng had taken out an Immortal Artifact and completely turned the situation around, causing the entire Starnet Palace to be annihilated, and his might was unparalleled and formidable to the extreme.
That day was the first time Chen Xi had seen an Earthly Immortal Realm expert make a move and the first time he'd truly seen an Immortal Artifact, causing it to leave an extremely deep impression in his mind. So how could he possibly forget this crimson haired young man that had accompanied by Bai Teng's side that day?
In the blink of an eye, so many years had passed, and he'd transformed from the Violet Palace Realm greenhorn youth into to the current perfection-stage Rebirth Realm Elite Disciple of the Nine Radiance Sword Sect. At this moment, when he saw a familiar face like Bai Gan once more, he was slightly absent-minded in his heart, and it seemed as if those incidents had occurred just yesterday and were vivid within his mind.
"Master, he'd a disciple of the Violet Thistle Mountain's Bai Clan. He just arrived at West Radiance Peak yesterday and said he's an old friend of yours and has something to discuss with you." Mu Kui explained via voice transmission from the side.
"Yes, I know." Chen Xi replied as a wisp of a light smile appeared on the corners of his mouth, and then he said to the distant Bai Gan, "Brother Bai, long time no see."
Huo Molei and the others heaved sighs of relief in their hearts when they saw Chen Xi recognized this young man, and they left with Qing Yu. They knew that since this person had come with the intention of discussion something with Chen Xi, it would be slightly unsuitable for them to continue staying here.
"Truthfully speaking, I completely never imagined that a disciple of the Darchu Dynasty like you would actually smoothly become eminent in the Primeval Battlefield and join the Nine Radiance Sword Sect to become an Elite Disciple." After everyone left, Bai Gan sized Chen Xi up briefly with his gaze and said with slight surprise, "I remember that when I saw you for the first time all those years ago, you were still at the Violet Palace Realm, right?"
Chen Xi nodded. "Indeed."
"No wonder Little Aunt looks so highly upon you. Just how many years have passed now, yet you've already advanced to the perfection-stage of the Rebirth Realm, and it's even to the extent that you're only a step away from developing a Blackhole and attaining the Nether Transformation Realm. Such natural talent is extremely rare," said Bai Gan before his expression turned serious. "I came here this time because I was entrusted by Little Aunt to bring you something."
As he spoke, a jade slip appeared in Bai Gan's hand.
Chen Xi was stunned, and a wisp of excitement couldn't help but suffuse his heart.
The Little Aunt Bai Gan spoke of was naturally Bai Wanqing.
It was precisely because of Bai Wanqing that he'd traversed all the way through into the Primeval Battlefield without fear of difficulties and arrived in the Dark Reverie. It was all for the sake of meeting Bai Wanqing and obtaining some clues related to his parents.
His parents had become an obsession in his heart since a long time ago. The trials, hardships, and the countless battles he'd experiences to arrive here today was all for the sake of searching for the whereabouts of his parents!
This wasn't just his obsession, it was also the obsession of his younger brother, and it was even the obsession that his grandfather was unable to let go before passing away!
"But if you want to obtain this jade slip, it will depend on if you possess the strength." Bai Gan suddenly spoke, and as he spoke, his eyes already carried a trace of surging battle intent. "Come, this jade slip is yours so long as your strength can satisfy me. If you fail, then you're unworthy of knowing the contents of this jade slip, and you should just stay obediently in the Nine Radiance Sword Sect while trying your best to cultivate!"
"This is a type of test?" Chen Xi frowned.
"Exactly." Bai Gan nodded. "Do you know how much Little Aunt was pushed away and reproached after she returned to the clan because of you? Everything she did was for your sake! If you don't even possess this little bit of strength, then what qualifications do you have to obtain this jade slip?"
His voice contained a trace of rage that couldn't be restrained, and he seemed to feel pained from the situation Bai Wanqing faced now and felt it was unfair and not worth it…
Chen Xi was able to perceive this, so he didn't hesitate and said, "Alright, I accept!"
In the next moment, the vital energy in Chen Xi's entire body surged like the tide as an unprecedented battle intent surged like blazing lava throughout his body, and it stimulated him to the point his mind was concentrated to an unparalleled level.
At this moment, he yearned for a battle, and he would go all out!
"Good!" Bai Gan's eyes lit up when he saw Chen Xi's battle intent was so tremendous, and he roared with laughter. "I've already attained the Nether Transformation Realm now, but I'll exert a strength at the perfection-stage of the Rebirth Realm while fighting you. So long as you're able to resist a hundred moves of mine, not only will I give the jade slip to you, I'll surely welcome you with open arms when you come to the Bai Clan in the future!"
As he spoke, his battle intent rumbled as his crimson red hair fluttered like flames, and he possessed an overbearing imposing aura of supremacy.
Swoosh!In the next moment, both of them soared up into the sky at practically the exact same time because both of them knew that once they fought, it would surely affect the West Radiance Peak.
"Come! Let me see exactly how great your ability is!" Bai Gan shouted loudly as he charged over swiftly with a ferocious and overbearing aura, and then he raised his fist and smashed out. His fist carried an overbearing aura and rumbled with Dao Insight as it swept over towards Chen Xi.
This strike was truly too violent, it crushed the space, broke apart the layer of clouds, and was simply impossible to resist. Even a Nether Transformation Realm expert wouldn't dare bear the brunt of its force!
Chen Xi was shocked. This Bai Gan is worthy of being a disciple of the Bai Clan. This is still when he has held back and is exerting a strength at the perfection-stage of the Rebirth Realm. If he completely erupts with his strength, exactly how formidable would his might be?
Bang!But Chen Xi wasn't afraid, and he raised his palm to strike out and directly receive it head on!
He utilized the profundities within the Allheaven Truth, and it was simple and direct, unsophisticated yet grand. A single palm strike was like a myriad of tidal waves surging out, and the layer upon layer of energy overlapped together, causing its might to rise steadily and explosively.
The fist and palm collided together and erupted with a terrifying radiance and wave of air, causing the entire sky to seem as if an earthquake had occurred there, and it shook violently while terrifying lights charged out in all directions.
Stomp! Stomp! Stomp!The figures separated as both of them took three steps back in midair, and every single step they took caused an expanse of cracks and waves to stretch out in the sky.
This was absolutely a ferocious battle. Both of them fought with large and direct movements, and they revealed shocking destructive force. If it wasn't for them being high above in the sky, the mountains in an area of 500km would have probably been completely destroyed.
Both of them were actually on par in this strike!
"Not bad, you've actually already started to comprehend Dao Arts, but this much strength isn't enough!" Bai Gan roared with laughter as his crimson hair fluttered, and he charged forward once again. He gripped his hand to form a fist and erupted with blazing violet light before he smashed his fist down in an extremely overbearing and cold manner.
Chen Xi moved to greet this attack, and he didn't retreat but moved forward instead. He similarly swung out his fist that raged with strong winds as he entered into an intense battle with Bai Gan.
Rumble!High above in the sky, waves of destructive energy that were like collapsing mountains and tidal waves erupted as both of them fought, and they fought to the point the whole world was turned upside down. Blazing and dazzling lights enveloped the entire area, causing everything there to be obscured.
The more he fought, the more delighted Chen Xi felt in his heart. It was the happy and satisfied feeling of meeting a perfect opponent, just like drinking a thousand cups of wine were never too many when with a friend. Moreover, only an opponent like Bai Gan was capable of completely lighting up the surging battle intent in his heart.
Bang!In the next moment, Chen Xi's disposition changed as he completely forgot his own existence, and he seemed to have returned to slaughtering within the army of specters in the Primeval Battlefield. All his thoughts and will had completely transformed into a single word — Battle!
Just like the tiny cauldron had said that day, only by completely blending into the battle would one be able to understand the essence of battle.
At this moment, Chen Xi seemed to be born for battle and looked down on the world because of battle.
Presently, every single move he made gushed out with various Dao Arts that possessed extraordinarily formidable might, and it carried the might of the heavens and the earth as it shook the world and brought chaos to the Yin and Yang of the world.
The Skycontrol Burial Sword, the Grand Confinement Dao Art, the Myriad Netherwave Palm, the Nine Spirit Transformations, the Violetlotus Goldshadow Barrier… Numerous supreme Dao Arts obtained from the secret realm at the top of the lotus platform were freely executed by him, and they were dazzling and lustrous as they broke through the chains of the world, turned the five elements around, and carried peerless profundities.
During the period of over a year that he comprehended Dao Arts in the world of stars, he'd already comprehended the profundities of all the 49 Dao Arts that he'd obtained from the secret realm at the top of the lotus platform, and he only lacked tempering and attainment.
Every single one of these 49 Dao Arts possessed might that shook the heavens and the earth and incinerated seas. If it was any other cultivator, being able to comprehend and grasp any one of them was sufficient to allow the cultivator to roam freely and become famous in the world.
Presently, Chen Xi had comprehended all of them within a short time of a little over a year, and if news of this practically heaven defying comprehension ability were to be spread out, it would absolutely give rise to a mighty uproar and caused him to be well renowned in all the three dimensions.
The reason he was capable of this was the Allheaven Truth.
This supreme book of the Dao recorded the profundity of all the Dao Art inheritances of the Nine Radiance Sword Sect, and those 49 Dao Arts were all produced from its profundities.
Chen Xi had comprehended it day and night and combined with the various scenes related to the primeval times that were branded within the Allheaven Truth, comprehending the Dao Arts within it was simply extremely smooth and achieved without effort.
But even though he'd comprehended them, grasping them completely wasn't something that could be done overnight. It required days and months of continuous tempering before the might of every single Dao Art could be brought out completely.
Now he was perfectly matched with Bai Gan, and it was just nice to be a superb tempering experience. The ceaseless tempering of all the Dao Arts he'd grasped would allow his knowledge and mastery of all the Dao Arts to improve swiftly.
But Chen Xi was completely unaware of all this as he'd already completely immersed himself into the battle, causing his battle intent to attain a peak state, and his mind was unprecedentedly clear and calm.
It was like a state of Dao comprehension, it was the tempering of Dao Arts, and it was the comprehension of the true essence of battle.
In practically less than 10 minutes, the True Essence within Chen Xi's body had already been completely consumed.
However, before he could be forced to stop attacking because of this, surging and pure spirit energy suddenly gushed over from all around in the heavens and the earth, and they gurgled like a river as they streamed into his body and instantly replenished his consumed True Essence.
From the beginning until the end, it utterly didn't affect Chen Xi's battle rhythm in the slightest!
"Hmm? He actually entered into a state of Dao comprehension while in battle, and he transformed the spirit energy of the heavens and the earth to be of use to him? This little fellow's natural talent is so high that it has simply arrived at an unprecedented extent!" At an extreme far distance away from West Radiance Peak, there were numerous mighty figures standing there since an unknown period in time. It was precisely the Sect Master, Wen Huating, and the other elders. They were alarmed by the commotion here and came over to look, and they noticed to their shock that Chen Xi had actually entered into a state of Dao comprehension while in battle!
