Senior Brother Long? Chen Xi thought in his heart. This person is probably that Long Zhenbei. Supposedly, he's from the Serpent Dragon Clan, possesses an extremely formidable strength, and is a well-renowned and great figure amongst the Seed Disciples.
When he thought up to here, his state of mind was naturally different when he looked once more at this young man in a bright yellow battle robe that possessed a monstrous imposing aura. Because according to his knowledge, even such a ferocious figure like Wang Zhonghuan could only fight this person equally!
After all, Wang Zhonghuan possessed the ability to multiply his combat strength by five times and an Immortal Artifact, yet even he was unable to do anything to Long Zhenbei, so the latter's strength was obvious.
Moreover, Long Zhenbei had cultivated the Innate Dao Art of the Serpent Dragon Clan, the Serpent Dragon's Spiriteyes, and it was even more formidable than the White Emperor's Metal Eyes that Yun Ye possessed.
"Haha. Junior Sister An actually still remembers me, I'm truly overwhelmed by this unexpected favor." Long Zhenbei roared with laughter, and his bearing was rather heroic.
He was tall, handsome, and full of spirit, and he was absolutely that type of remarkable man that drew the favor of countless young women and possessed a unique manly charm.
"Senior Brother Long is too kind." An Wei had recovered her calm at this moment, and her expression was calm as water as she said with a light voice, "Could it be that Senior Brother Long is heading to the Dark Parasol's Abyss as well?"
"Exactly." Long Zhenbei nodded while staring at An Wei with a burning gaze, and he didn't conceal his burning admiration of her in the slightest. "The Dark Parasol's Abyss has opened up once again after 10,000 years, and this matter shook the world a long time ago. I just happened to have cultivated to a bottleneck now, so I intend to gain tempering in the outside world, and perhaps it will be able to assist me in breaking through in my Dao Insight comprehension and grasp the ability to exert six times my combat strength!"
Six times combat strength? Chen Xi's eyes narrowed slightly when he heard this, and then it recovered to its previous state.
"With Senior Brother Long's natural talent, you'll surely be able to obtain success and achieve a new height during this trip," said An Wei with a smile.
"Haha, thank you for your blessings." Long Zhenbei roared with laughter, and then he said, "Let's go. Since Junior Sister An intends to head to the Dark Parasol's Abyss to gain tempering as well, then we just happen to be going in the same direction, and I'm willing to play the role of the escort of a beauty, open the way, and protect Junior Sister An."
It might have been intentional, but from the beginning until the end, Long Zhenbei hadn't spared a glance at Chen Xi, and it seemed that besides An Wei, there wasn't a single person that was capable of drawing his attention.
Of course, this sort of 'cold' treatment wouldn't make Chen Xi inwardly angry. After all, it was the first time he'd met Long Zhenbei, and since Long Zhenbei intentionally put forward such an arrogant bearing, he was happy to be at leisure.
"Senior Brother Long, this is Chen Xi. He's a new Seed Disciple with fairly extraordinary strength, and he'll be heading to the Dark Parasol's Abyss to gain tempering along with me." An Wei noticed as well that the conversation between her and Long Zhenbei had slightly neglected Chen Xi, and she introduced him right away. "Chen Xi, this is Senior Brother Long Zhenbei, and he's a top expert amongst us Seed Disciples."
"Oh?" Long Zhenbei frowned when An Wei dragged the topic of conversation onto Chen Xi, and then his brows eased up. Only now did he place his gaze onto Chen Xi and slightly size Chen Xi up before withdrawing his gaze, and then he nodded at An Wei with a smile. "Since he's a companion of Junior Sister An Wei's, then he's one of our own. It's already late, so let's set out."
His voice was casual and imperceptibly revealed a slightly unconcerned feeling, and it seemed that if it wasn't because An Wei introduced Chen Xi, he couldn't be bothered to pay attention to Chen Xi in the slightest.
An Wei was intelligent, so how could she have possibly been unable to discern the perfunctory in these words, and she laughed bitterly towards Chen Xi before she said via voice transmission, "Senior Brother Long possesses a lofty and unyielding character, and it's difficult for ordinary people to enter his eyes. Junior Brother Chen Xi, just endure it a bit because it ought to be much safer when we head to the Dark Parasol's Abyss with him joining us."
Chen Xi smiled as well and displayed that he didn't mind, yet he said in his heart, A lofty and unyielding character? He obviously feels his strength is formidable and is just being arrogant and conceited.
Chen Xi had seen countless figures that were like this during these past few years, so he naturally couldn't be bother to fuss about it.
The three of them had just entered the teleportation formation when a divine light flashed, and they instantly vanished before the entrance to the Nine Radiance Sword Sect.
"Master, Chen Xi has left."
"Oh? Have you found out where he's heading?"
"It ought to be the Dark Parasol's Abyss, and Long Zhenbei and An Wei are travelling along with him."
"Long Zhenbei and An Wei? That is slightly troublesome. One of them is a peerless monster of the Serpent Dragon Clan, whereas the other is a genius that deeply receives the favor of the higher-ups. Exactly what ability does this kid Chen Xi possess to actually be able to join them…?"
"Master, then what should we do?"
"Forget it. We'll act according to the initial plan and pass news of this to the Nether Spring Devil Sect. I believe that the Nether Spring Devil Sect will surely be extremely interested with the Grand Dao profundities of the Paramita and Oblivion Grand Daos."
"Then… Should the Heavenflow Dao Sect be notified as well?"
"You go on ahead. I'll personally deal with the Heavenflow Dao Sect."
East Radiance Peak, within the extremely grand Starvault Pavilion, the Peak Master of East Radiance Peak, Yue Chi, send away a loyal disciple of his before returning to his seat and closing his eyes before entering into deep contemplation.
Paramita, Oblivion… I wonder if this kid has grasped the Grand Dao of Terminus or not. But, since he's able to grasp the Grand Daos of Paramita and Oblivion, it's surely related to the Netherworld Emperor that roamed freely throughout the three dimensions during the Primordial Era… After a long time, Yue Chi opened his eyes and muttered. Nevermind, I'll leave this matter to be handled by the Nether Spring Devil Sect. After I use them to kill Chen Xi, if they really obtain clues to obtain the Grand Dao of Terminus from that kid, it wouldn't be late for me to make a move then…
Haha, Chen Xi, oh, Chen Xi. You probably would have utterly never imagined what sort of dangers you'll encounter when going out from the sect this time. But it can't be helped, who ask you to offend me so thoroughly that day? You can only blame yourself for being too stupid! Yue Chi's gloomy and low muttering drifted within the empty pavilion, whereas Yue Chi himself sat upright within the shadows and seemed to be even more ghastly and terrifying. He wasn't like a figure from the immortal path, but seemed like a true member of the Devil Sect.
Icesky City, an ancient city that stood within the tundra area at the extreme west, and it was extremely ancient and had existed for countless years until now, causing it to emit a heavy feeling of age.
This city occupied a vast area and was covered completely by snow and ice. It was even to the extent that the streets and houses within the city were constructed with ice, causing them to be glossy like glass and emanating coldness.
Pure white snow sealed a boundless expanse in ice, and this city was truly a city of ice.
"Wasn't the Dark Parasol's Abyss supposed to have already emerged into the world? Why can't we find the location of the Towernine Mountain? Could it be that the Dark Parasol's Abyss is only a legend, otherwise why can't anyone find the path to enter it?" On the streets made from ice, some heroic and exuberant young experts were filled with doubt. They were from the various areas of the Dark Reverie and had entered this ancient city of icy for a period of time, yet they were unable to find the path to enter the Towernine Mountain in the end.
"You can't say that. The Towernine Mountain was a divine mountain during the primeval times and was filled with mystery, and it was the place gods resided and cultivated in. Unless such a divine mountain emerged by itself, otherwise we're utterly incapable of finding it."
"Indeed. Only by waiting for the Towernine Mountain to appear will we be able to find the path to enter the Dark Parasol's Abyss. Relax yourself and wait. Since the news has already been spread, perhaps the Towernine Mountain will appear not too long from now."
Some people deeply believed that the Towernine Mountain would surely appear, and it was only a matter of time, whereas as long as the Towernine Mountain appeared, they would be able to find the path to enter the Dark Parasol's Abyss.
Streams of people moved endlessly up and down the streets. This grand and ancient city of ice was a unique city here, and it was extremely prosperous. It possessed an innumerable population, causing it to be bustling, clamorous, and filled with people.
Accompanying the world shocking news of the Dark Parasol's Abyss being about to appear, this city had become even more bustling, and there were experts gushing in here from all over every single day.
The Immortal Sects, Devil Sects, and the various clans… All of them came in throngs. Some living beings that seemed like demons yet weren't demons, seemed like ghosts yet weren't ghosts, and were rare natural born spirits had appeared in this ancient city as well.
When Chen Xi, An Wei, and Long Zhenbei arrived at Icesky City, they saw numerous races with strange appearances that they'd never seen before, but all of them had extremely formidable auras that caused others to pay attention to them.
"There're so many experts," said Chen Xi with surprise.
He swept the surroundings with his gaze and noticed that there was no lack of formidable figures within the crowd, and it was even to the extent that the imposing aura of some experts were even on par with existences like Wang Zhonghuan.
But there were very few experts like this. Amongst the hundred plus people here, only a mere one or two were like this. However, even if it was like this, it was already sufficiently shocking. After all, even if it was within an extraordinary power like the Nine Radiance Sword Sect, there was only a small portion of ferocious figures like Wang Zhonghuan.
Presently, such a figure could be casually encountered on the streets of Icesky City, so it was obvious how many experts from the entire Dark Reverie had been drawn over by the appearance of the Dark Parasol's Abyss this time.
"The Dark Parasol's Abyss has appeared once more after 10,000 years, so it has naturally drawn the interest of the experts from all around. According to my knowledge, some formidable and outstanding disciples of the ten great immortal sects, the six lineages of the devil sects, and the clans from the Primordial Era have rushed over, and they've taken the Dark Parasol's Abyss to be a place to obtain tempering." An Wei spoke with a relaxed tone. "Fortunately, we aren't late, and the Towernine Mountain haven't appeared yet, so we've avoided others being ahead of us."
"Would experts at the Earthly Immortal Realm interfere?" asked Chen Xi.
"Don't worry, according to my knowledge, the three dimensions are about to undergo an upheaval, and all the Earthly Immortal Realm experts in the Dark Reverie are worried for their own safety. Most of them have chosen to enter closed door cultivation. So we Nether Transformation Realm cultivators are already peak existences within Icesky City, and we have entirely no reason to be worried." An Wei explained in a light voice.
"That's for the best." Chen Xi heaved a sigh of relief in his heart. If Earthly Immortal Realm experts were to participate in this, then how could all of the Nether Transformation Realm cultivators obtain any benefits? It would even be difficult for them to get scraps.
"Let's go. We'll head to Ice Cloud Pavilion first. The disciples of the various extraordinary powers have probably already gathered there, so let's go over there as well and find out the actual situation. Let's see exactly which formidable figure is entering the Dark Parasol's Abyss this time and prepare countermeasures beforehand." The nearby Long Zhenbei pointed towards the distance as he spoke.
Shockingly, there was a completely translucent pavilion of ice that stood towering into the sky there, and it was suffused with a misty sheen under the sunlight, causing it to be extremely striking.
