After he restrained his thoughts, Chen Xi glanced at the surroundings, and then he forcefully restrained the impulse to refine the Fiendgod tendon in the end and placed it into the Buddha's Pagoda.
There were many people here, so if he refined a treasure like the tendon of a Fiendgod here, then it was difficult to avoid being noticed, and it would be troublesome.
Chen Xi took a deep breath before closing his eyes, and he sat cross-legged before the Icesoul Divine Tree like everyone else and comprehended the aura of the Grand Dao of Water that was emanated by the divine tree.
The Icesoul Divine Tree deserved being a divine tree that was born during the primeval times. In merely an instant, Chen Xi sensed a copious and extremely flawless Water Dao Insight gush into his height, and it caused his knowledge of the Water Dao Insight to grow deeper.
This sort of feeling was as if he was immersed within an endless flow of water, and every single inch of his skin was capable of clearly and perfectly sensing the changes in the flow of water. It was rapid sometimes, it gurgled sometimes, it surged sometimes, and it vividly displayed the characteristics of water.
Nothing in the world was gentler than water, and there wasn't a defense it couldn't break.
Merely a single sentence encompassed all the profundities of the Grand Dao of water. Water was gentle in nature, yet when it became violent, it was capable of destroying mountains and drowning the world. It was very adept in attack.
But in next to no time, Chen Xi noticed that the profundities of water he was able to sense was even more profound, deep, and vast than the profundities he'd grasped, and it simply encompassed everything in the world.
He was able to sense that this aura of water carried the alternation of Yin and Yang, and the comparison between light and dark. It simultaneously carried both firmness and gentleness… It was even more complete, more flawless and perfect.
Everything is divided into Yin and Yang, so isn't water the same? There's water of extreme Yin and similarly water of extreme Yang. Water from Metal is pliable and tough, Water from Wood consolidates the foundation… Numerous comprehensions gushed into his heart like a stream, causing Chen Xi to be immersed into a selfless state of Dao comprehension, and his grasp of the Grand Dao of Water rose along with this.
Unknowingly, a day passed just like this.
Suddenly, a wave of footsteps approached, and it was even accompanied by a wave of low clamorous noises. This instantly jolted Chen Xi awake from his profound state.
Chen Xi couldn't help but frown. He'd sensed earlier that if he continued to comprehend in meditation, then it wouldn't be a month before his grasp of the Water Dao Insight would attain perfection. Now it had been interrupted abruptly, and he was slightly unhappy in his heart.
I wonder who spoiled my cultivation like this. Could it be they don't know that it's prohibited to make noise before the Icesoul Divine Tree? Chen Xi muttered in his heart. But he couldn't help but be stunned when he raised his head and looked over because it was actually An Wei that was walking over toward him.
She had gorgeous hair that hung loosely on her shoulders, skin that was white like snow, a classical and beautiful appearance, and a slender and graceful figure that drew out breathtaking and perfect lines. Her ethereal and extraordinary bearing caused her to seem like a celestial maiden that walked over from the horizon, dazzling and resplendent.
This beauty who possessed a bearing and appearance that was capable of overturning a kingdom walked over trippingly, and she naturally caused a wave of restless movement in the surroundings.
Those cultivators that were originally comprehending in meditation were disturbed and were slightly displeased yet they couldn't help but be stunned when they saw a beauty like this appear, and the displeasure in their hearts instantly vanished without a trace while their gazes became slightly burning and infatuated.
Chen Xi couldn't help but chuckle to himself when he saw this. No wonder clamorous noise would arise. A beauty like An Wei who's beautiful like a celestial maiden would cause restless movement no matter where she went.
"I didn't disturb your comprehension, right?" An Wei had a slightly apologetic expression as she approached.
"No." Chen Xi shook his head as he stood up, and then he asked with surprise. "What're you doing here, Senior Sister?"
"Oh, I just finished shopping and saw you cultivating here, and I felt curious about why you didn't stay at the Ice Cloud Pavilion and came here alone instead." An Wei explained with a light voice.
Chen Xi rubbed his nose and smiled. "It's quiet here, so it's comfortable to stay here."
An Wei's mind was extremely discerning, and she instantly noticed that Chen Xi wasn't being honest. But she didn't pursue an answer and took out a jade slip before passing it to Chen Xi.
She smiled and explained. "This is the information I just purchased, and within it is the records of some formidable figures that have arrived at Icesky City lately. Keep it, as you must know your enemies as well as you know yourself so that you'll be able to take action much more efficiently after you enter the Dark Parasol's Abyss, and you wouldn't go so far as to offend some formidable figures."
Chen Xi finally understood what An Wei had left the Ice Cloud Pavilion to do now, and he couldn't help but feel slight admiration. It was obvious from this that An Wei had exerted much effort for the sake of being able to safely obtain tempering in the Dark Parasol's Abyss.
"Alright. Since you're willing to stay here, then I'll head to the Ice Cloud Pavilion first. But you must not leave Icesky City arbitrarily. According to the information I obtained, the Dark Parasol's Abyss would probably emerge in the next few days." An Wei instructed before turning around and leaving trippingly.
"Don't worry Senior Sister, I'll be careful." Chen Xi cupped his hands as he sent An Wei off with his gaze, and he sat down cross-legged once her beautiful figure had vanished within the Ice Cloud Pavilion before looking carefully through the jade slip.
"Heavenflow Dao Sect's top grade Seed Disciple, Yan Shisan, six times combat strength…"
"Six Desire Devil Sect's top grade Seed Disciple, Su Feiyu, six times combat strength…"
"Truth Embrace Sect…"
"Nether Spring Devil Sect…"
"Violet Thistle Mountain's Bai Clan…"
This jade slip listed out row after row of names with extreme detail, and they were either top disciples of the 10 great immortal sects or famous experts within the Devil Sects. Moreover, there was no lack of fierce figures from the clans from the primeval times and various sects that lived in seclusion from the world.
A rough count actually put them at a few thousand people, and every single one of them was at least at the Nether Transformation Realm!
This was only the list of experts that had come to Icesky City lately, and along with the passage of time, there would surely be even more experts arriving from all over.
Of course, there was only a small group of people on the list that were worthy of Chen Xi paying attention to. Moreover, this group of people were labelled with extreme care by An Wei.
But when he counted them carefully, they were only a few tens of people, and their names practically appeared at the front of the list. For example, the Heavenflow Dao Sect's Yan Shisan and Leng Chan'er, the Truth Embrace Sect's Daoist Crimson Sun, the Six Desire Devil Sect's Su Feiyu, the Nether Spring Devil Sect's Qiu Jun, and so on and so forth.
Similarly, Chen Xi had noticed Shang Que and Feng Jianbai, two familiar names on the list, and both of them were figures that he intended to eliminate.
Shang Que went without saying, whereas, Feng Jianbai was the disciple of the Feng Clan who'd once gone against him in the Primeval Battlefield, and their conflict ran extremely deep to the point of being irreconcilable. Presently, Feng Jianbai had joined the Heartcontrol Swordhouse.
To Chen Xi's disappointment, he didn't notice Zhen Liuqing, Fan Yunlan, Zhao Qinghe, Ling Yu, and the others on this list. But he came to an understanding with a quick thought. All of these people had joined sects that possessed an extremely ancient inheritance that was only greater than the 10 great immortal sects and six great devil sects. Moreover, these sects hadn't appeared in the world for an extremely long time. So it could be considered to be normal that they didn't make an appearance here.
There're actually so many experts joining the ranks of exploring the Dark Parasol's Abyss, so the competition would probably become exceedingly horrifying. I wonder where the Chaotic Divine Crystal the tiny cauldron wants is. It would be bad if someone beats me to it… Chen Xi put away the jade slip and couldn't help but have a slightly heavy feeling in his heart, and then his gaze looked towards the Icesoul Divine Tree behind him before becoming lost in thought.
At this moment, the tiny cauldron ought to be in that independent space subduing the strand of soul of the Dark Parasol Divine Tree within the bronze coffin, right?
