Chen Xi's actions of forcing the two peerless geniuses, Wen Daoran and Daoist Crimson Sun, back with a single strike to seize the divine objects on the stone tablet had shocked everyone present within the hall.
Leng Chan'er's arrived was a step too late yet the words she inadvertently revealed was like adding fuel to a fire, and it allowed everyone present to realize once more how formidable Chen Xi was.
No one had imagined that the most renowned madman of the Heavenflow Dao Sect, a peerless ferocious figure that possessed extraordinary natural talent would actually lose at Chen Xi's hands!
The atmosphere instantly became silent, perfectly silent.
Everyone looked at Chen Xi with gazes that carried deep fear.
Chen Xi glanced over and similarly noticed Leng Chan'er's arrival, but, his attention was mostly placed on a thin, tall, snow white haired, and white robed old man who stood by Leng Chan'er's side.
The old man held his hands behind his back and had an indifferent gaze yet his entire body flowed with Immortal Energy, causing him to be like an abyss that gave others an unfathomable and horrifying feeling.
Shockingly, this was an Earthly Immortal Realm expert!
Chen Xi's pupils constricted imperceptibly, and he said in his heart, It really is like that. These immortal sects, devil sects, and primordial clans surely possess their own respective Earthly Immortal Realm experts leading the group, and this white robed old man before me is probably an important person from the Heavenflow Dao Sect!
When Chen Xi's gaze glanced towards the old man, the latter's gaze had similarly rose up to sweep towards him. The old man's gaze was deep and icy cold, and it exploded out like a sharp sword that swiftly locked onto Chen Xi and it was sharp to the point it seemed capable of slashing his soul apart!
Shit! This old fellow seems to have aroused killing intent towards me! Chen Xi felt apprehensive in his heart as he acutely captured a trace of imperceptible killing intent from the old man's gaze.
Even though this killing intent vanished in an instant, the killing intent contained within his gaze was abundantly clear, and it was as if he was staring at someone that would die for sure, icy cold and terrifying.
Chen Xi circulated the Wings of Disruption without the slightest hesitation. In the next moment, he'd already shot out explosively towards the depths of the hall, and he was like a ray of light that moved at an unbelievable speed.
There were numerous passageways that lead towards this hall, but at its deepest depths was a tightly shut bronze large door that was mottled with rust, and its surface was branded with some ancient and indistinct striations and patterns, causing it to seem ancient and as if it had experienced the tempering of countless years.
Before he'd even arrived at this hall, the tiny cauldron had pointed out to Chen Xi that the core area of the Divine Palace of Creation was behind this door, and further back from there was the mysterious and unfathomable Door of Profundity.
At this moment, Chen Xi had taken this door to be the path of his escape!
He had no other choice. The wisp of killing intent emitted inadvertently by the Earthly Immortal Realm expert allowed him to smell the smell of extreme danger, and if he didn't leave now, then he would probably be unable to leave at all.
After all, it was an Earthly Immortal Realm expert!
The name Earthly Immortal already carried the world immortal within it. Even though it couldn't be compared to a Heavenly Immortal, it was sufficient for an Earthly Immortal Realm expert to look down upon all the cultivators in the world. They possessed extraordinary strength and were the peak existences beneath the Immortal Dimension.
When facing such a terrifying existence, how could Chen Xi dare have the slightest thought of being lucky?
Chen Xi's suddenly departure was too sudden, and it caused everyone present to be stunned, and they didn't understand why he did this. But the white robed old man had always been focused on Chen Xi, and he seemed to not be surprised when he saw Chen Xi fleeing.
"Junior, since you've come, then leave your life behind!" In the next moment, the white robed old man flicked his sleeve, and he suddenly struck out a bolt of lightning that glowed violet as it shot over explosively.
Wu~ Wu~ Wu~
Countless black holes were created as soon as this violet colored bolt of lightning revolved slightly, and these thousands of black holes caused a terrifying suction force that caused the space around Chen Xi to start warping and emit deafening rumbles.
Shit! In merely an instant, Chen Xi felt a horrifying coldness gush into his heart, and he practically instinctively withdrew all his strength and formed layer after layer of barrier around his body as he repeatedly executed boundless profound techniques to envelop the surroundings of his body.
Even then, he still wasn't at ease, and he circulated his Blackhole World once more and caused it to rumble madly. Moreover, he gathered the Wings of Disruption behind his back and circulated it with all his might.
The violet colored lightning exploded.
Chen Xi felt a piercing pain while everything in his surroundings were being annihilated as if they'd suffered a great calamity and the end of the world had arrived. His entire surroundings were covered in what seemed like chaotic purgatories as all his defensive Dao Arts were blasted apart layer after layer.
In merely an instant, his body had suffered a heavy injury and was on the verge of shattering, and it was even to the extent that the violet colored lightning had invaded into his Blackhole World!
"Dark Parasol sapling, myriad of profundities, fuse into one, burn and repair!" At the critical moment, his Blackhole World suddenly emitted a wave of rumbling as the divine tree formed from the Dark Parasol sapling sprayed out a tide of Immortal Energy, and it instantly circulated a myriad of times to finally eliminate the violet lightning that had invaded his Blackhole World. But the meridians and internal organs within his body had already suffered a heavy injury and were devastated.
Chen Xi couldn't endure any longer and sprayed out a mouthful of blood, and his countenance instantly became translucent and pale to the extreme.
This is the might of an Earthly Immortal Realm expert?
Compared to the heavy injuries in his entire body, Chen Xi had a stronger feeling of astonishment. After that, a wisp of extreme danger surged once more into his heart, and he instinctively swished to the side.
A lightning sword light slashed down from the position he moved away from, and it ploughed out a deep and horrifying gully in the ground.
Chen Xi paid no attention to all this. At this moment, he was like a ferocious beast that had been forced into a hopeless situation. His eyes were completely red as he gritted his teeth and exerted all the strength in his body, causing the blood and vital essence in his entire body to seem as if they were burning madly!
In the next moment, he'd transformed into a ray of light that knocked open the door in the depths of the hall and finally charged into it.
"Old dog! I'll remember this! I'll surely take your lowly life in the future!" The bronze door closed tightly once more and Chen Xi's voice that was filled with boundless resentment and killing intent sounded out from within.
"Hmph!" The white robed old man grunted coldly yet didn't pursue, and he stayed on the spot with a gloomy expression instead. He seemed to be slightly surprised that Chen Xi was able to avoid his attack.
On the other hand, the others in the hall were stunned like clay figures.
All of this had occurred too quickly. From the moment Chen Xi fled to the white robed old man attacking, and to the point Chen Xi escaped while suffering a heavy injury. This string of movements occurred in an instant, and it was so fast that the others were unable to react to what had happened before Chen Xi's figure had already vanished behind the bronze door!
This instant of combat could be described as occurring in an instant!
Especially because this combat had occurred between an Earthly Immortal Realm expert and a cultivator at the Nether Transformation Realm. Just thinking about such a scene caused the bodies of everyone to go cold and even their breathing became difficult.
It was too terrifying!
Chen Xi was actually able to dodge and successfully escape an assault from behind that came from an Earthly Immortal Realm expert!
Everyone asked themselves that if they were in Chen Xi's place, they would probably have been smashed into bits at this moment, whereas this was also the thing that shocked them the most.
After all, not to mention now, even if they looked back into the boundless annals of time of the entire Dark Reverie, a Nether Transformation Realm cultivator that could escape from the hands of an Earthly Immortal Realm expert was a rare existence like qilin horns and phoenix feathers.
They knew extremely clearly that if news of this incident were to be spread, it would surely cause Chen Xi to rise to fame!
"Martial Uncle Chu Jing, your actions seem to be…" After a short moment, Leng Chan'er stared blankly into the distance as she asked.
"Slightly lacking in consideration of my status?" The white robed old man called Chu Jing smiled lightly yet his eyes were extremely icy cold. "This kid Chen Xi must be killed here this time! It isn't just me, even if it's the other elders of the sect that came here, they would act in the same way, and you ought to know the reason better than me."
Leng Chan'er was stunned as a wisp of bitterness arose in the corners of her mouth. She naturally knew that because of her Martial Ancestor Qing Xiuyi, the Heavenflow Dao Sect had already taken Chen Xi to be a needle in their eyes, a thorn in their flesh, and they wished for nothing more than to pluck out his tendons, pull out his bones, and burn his corpse before scattering his ashes.
But never had she imagined that her senior would actually launch a surprise attack on a junior before the eyes of everyone, and this caused her to feel slightly uncomfortable in her heart.
As far as she was concerned, Chen Xi's competition with Lord Bing Shitian was like throwing an egg against a rock, and Chen Xi was overestimating his ability. Even if they wanted to deal with him, they didn't have to stop at nothing, right?
If news of this were to spread, it probably wouldn't just draw the ridicule of the various powers, and it would cause a great storm if news of it were to enter the ears of the Nine Radiance Sword Sect!
"Haha, that kid is already heavily injured. I'll go kill him right away and seize the treasures back!" A disciple of the Heavenflow Dao Sect roared with laughter and was rather complacent, and he was excitedly intended to charge into the bronze door and pursue Chen Xi.
"There's no need to pursue him." Chu Jing suddenly spoke and instructed indifferently. "The other side of that door is filled with boundless danger. The Earthly Immortal Realm experts of the other powers have already entered earlier and are trapped within. That junior was heavily injured by my attack earlier, and he's doomed once he went in there."
At this moment, the experts of the other powers lost their composure as their expressions turned grim. The Earthly Immortal Realm experts of the other powers? Isn't that us?
When they thought about how the Ancestors of their respective powers were trapped behind the bronze door while it was impossible to know if those Ancestors were still alive, all their hearts went cold. Exactly what sort of danger exists behind the door to the point that an Earthly Immortal Realm expert is actually unable to escape?
"Let's go. Besides that bronze door, this Divine Palace of Creation ought to have many mysteries left. Search carefully and it ought to not be difficult to obtain some fortuitous encounters." Chu Jing swept the others in the hall with his gaze, and he grunted coldly before bringing Leng Chan'er and the others along as he turned and left.
As an Earthly Immortal Realm expert, he would naturally not make a move against these juniors, because such actions would be too disregarding of his bearing. Not to mention all of these juniors had formidable backgrounds, and he didn't dare kill them to silence them.
As for making a move against Chen Xi earlier… That was a special case and couldn't be lumped together.
"Let's go as well and search the other places." Daoist Crimson Sun sighed and was slightly dispirited. He shook his head and brought the experts of the Truth Embrace Sect along as he turned and left as well.
"Let's go. Even the Ancestor is trapped within, and it's only a path towards death if we go in. Worrying is useless!" Wen Daoran was silent for a long time before making a decision in the end.
In next to no time, these experts from the immortal sects, devil sects, and primordial clans had left successively, and not a single one of them dared to traverse through that bronze door.
It seemed as if an expanse of purgatory or a dead end was behind the bronze door, and death was certain!
