A tiny and ordinary ant was actually able to remain unharmed within this layer upon layer of restrictions of annihilation!
This scene was too unbelievable. Even Chen Xi had relied on the might of the Dark Parasol sapling in order to safely step foot here, otherwise not to mention arriving before this divine tree, he would have been crushed into bits the moment he step foot into this area.
Most horrifying of it all was that he'd actually not noticed when this ant appeared on his ear!
After all, the strength of his current Divine Sense was comparable to an Earthly Immortal Realm expert, and he'd left cultivators at the Nether Transformation Realm far behind him since a long time ago. Any movements in the wind or grass within an area of 5,000km was unable to escape his detection.
Yet now, this tiny ant had suddenly appeared on him, so how could Chen Xi not be surprised?
Chen Xi took a deep breath and picked this ant up once more before carefully inspecting it. He noticed it was identical to the ants of the world. It was similarly shiny black and tiny without the slightest different, let alone compare with those Golden Emperor Ants. Both of them were utterly not on the same level.
"Strange, could it be that the restrictions here are ineffective against ordinary existences?" Chen Xi frowned and was extremely puzzled, and it was even to the extent he didn't pay attention to the shocking and fierce battle in the distance.
"Bring it along, because it's immensely useful for when you enter the Door of Profundity." Right at this moment, the tiny cauldron spoke abruptly with a calm voice, and it seemed to have already realized the existence of this ant since a long time ago.
"What!?" Chen Xi was greatly shocked. A tiny little ant is actually capable of being related to the Door of Profundity?
After that, he recovered from his shock. Since the tiny cauldron had said this, then this ant was surely extraordinary, and it was absolutely not something ordinary ants that he was familiar with could compare to.
"Alright, let me see exactly what miraculous effect you possess." Chen Xi raised his hand and place the ant on his shoulder, and he relaxed upon noticing the little fellow was extremely quiet and didn't move about randomly.
"Fellow Daoists, if we don't deal with these three animals swiftly, then not to mention obtaining the inheritance of that exalted expert, we wouldn't even have the fate to enter the Door of Profundity!" Within the battlefield, mighty figure that emitted an immortal radiance shouted out explosively, and it instantly drew Chen Xi's attention over.
At this moment, the battlefield had already entered into heated battle. Many of those ten plus Earthly Immortal Realm experts were injured, whereas those three Golden Emperor Ants were covered in injuries as well, yet they were still exceedingly ferocious as before.
If it was before, Chen Xi would absolutely not dare imagine that three Emperor Ants would actually be able to go head on against 10 plus Earthly Immortal Realm experts, because such a scene was too terrifying.
"Fellow Daoist Feng Xuanzi is right. Everyone, I think there's no need for us to continue concealing our strengths. How about we utilize our trump cards together and annihilate these three animals in one go?"
Feng Xuanzi's suggestion quickly obtained the agreement of the other Earthly Immortal Realm experts. The bodies of these Earthly Immortal Realm experts instantly erupted with boundless rays of lights while Immortal Energy shot into the sky, and they were like numerous burning suns as their imposing auras rose greatly.
Bang! Bang! Bang!
Various dazzling and resplendent terrifying Dao Arts erupted like surging lava, and it instantly swept out with an extremely horrifying impetus. It shook the heavens and the earth in the surroundings and seemed to be on the verge of breaking the sky apart!
"How terrifying!" Chen Xi's pupils constricted abruptly. Even though he was watching the battle from afar, he was still unable to refrain from feeling a wisp of horror.
If such an attack was released in the outside world, it would absolutely be sufficient to annihilate an entire kingdom!
In merely an instant, those three Golden Emperor Ants were crushed. They emitted howls that shook the heavens as they vanished while carrying their unwillingness, and not even a bit of them remained.
"How dangerous! This core area of the Divine Palace of Creation deserves its reputation as the graveyard that buried numerous experts. Merely the existence of these animals is an extreme headache."
"Haha. Isn't it a killjoy to speak of all this now? The important matter at hand is to search for the inheritance of the exalted expert while moving up."
"Exactly, I've already sensed that the Door of Profundity will surely emerge into the world this time. Even if we're unable to find the exalted expert's inheritance, we can enter the Door of Profundity and try our luck!"
After they eliminated those three Emperor Ants in one ago, all the Earthly Immortal Realm experts roared with laughter while their spirits were refreshed. Being able to arrive here was rather difficult, and not that they only had to ascend the try before it would be very likely that they obtained an extremely great fortuitous encounter, even they who possessed such cultivations couldn't help but feel a wisp of excitement.
However, before they could even make a move, a peerlessly vast strand of Sword Insight swiftly converged together. At this moment, this entire expanse of the heavens and the earth was filled with countless strange lights that gushed over from all directions.
It was like countless sword lights had been summoned, causing them to return to their source, and the entire heavens and the earth fluctuated violently with an exceedingly shocking impetus.
A wisp of golden Sword Insight shot into the sky. In the blink of an eye, it had appeared before those Earthly Immortal Realm cultivators before descending with a bang, causing golden lights to erupt and shake the entire divine tree to the point of trembling.
"It's actually another Emperor Ant!"
"Wait! This is probably an even more terrifying Emperor Ant. Merely its aura far exceeds those three Emperor Ants from before by more than a few times!"
When they saw the appearance of the attacker clearly, the expressions of all the Earthly Immortal Realm experts froze before darkening, and their eyes were filled with heavy expressions.
None of them had ever imagined that right after they killed those three Emperor Ants, it would actually draw out an even more formidable and terrifying Emperor Ant!
At this moment, Chen Xi had seen it clearly as well. Shockingly, it was a completely dark gold Emperor Ant that was over 3m long and had limbs that were strong as if they were made from steel!
Unlike the Emperor Ants he saw earlier, this Emperor Ant's aura was even more terrifying. Its entire body emanated a form of supremely noble dignity, and when looking at it from afar, Chen Xi felt a tiny, horrifying, and powerless feeling.
It seemed as if he was the ant, whereas the Emperor Ant was a god that stood towering in the heavens and the earth while looking down proudly at the world of man.
The battle erupted once more as expected. Unlike before, even though there were more than 10 Earthly Immortal Realm experts, but it was extremely strenuous for them to deal with this single Emperor Ant.
Even Chen Xi was able to perceive that they faintly revealed a trace of a sign of being on the verge of being suppressed.
A single Emperor Ant with peerless Sword Insight suppressing over 10 Earthly Immortal Realm experts by itself yet still in an advantageous position and revealed matchless martial prowess. If this scene were to be seen by everyone in the outside world, it would surely shock a ton of jaws off.
"Seize the moment and go now!" The tiny cauldron's voice suddenly resounded out in his heart, causing Chen Xi to instantly return to his senses. He took a deep breath and stopped considering if the path ahead was dangerous, and he carefully moved around the battlefield according to the tiny cauldron's instructions and flashed up from the side.
Even then, when he arrived at the middle of the divine tree, he was still affected by the terrifying fluctuations of the battle, causing his entire body to feel as if a mountain was pressing down upon him, and his blood was on the verge of freezing.
Under these circumstances, not to mention flying, even taking a step forward was so difficult.
But Chen Xi couldn't care about all this and gritted his teeth as he persisted to move forward step by step, and he worked hard to leave this area that was enveloped by the fluctuations of the battle in a short amount of time.
"Hmm? There's actually a little fellow over there!" In the distance, a surprised and bewildered voice suddenly sounded out.
Chen Xi's heart instantly jerked as he knew this was bad. He never imagined that those Earthly Immortal Realm experts would actually still be able to notice him while in a fierce battle.
At this moment, he didn't dare hold back any longer nor did he continue to hide his tracks, and he moved forward with practically all his might and moved up step by step.
"A junior actually dares to seize the opportunity while we're drawing the attention of the Emperor Ant to approach the peak of the divine tree? How could there be such a good opportunity in this world? Leave your life behind!" An Earthly Immortal Realm expert shouted out explosively as he stretched out his hand and swung out an azure colored bolt of lightning.
Chen Xi was horrified in his heart as the hairs on his body stood on end. At this moment, he was affected by the fluctuations of the battle, causing it to be difficult for him to move, and he was utterly incapable of dodging swiftly.
At this instant, he placed his hopes on the tiny cauldron making a move, otherwise he would surely die without a doubt.
However, to his astonishment. From the beginning until the end, the tiny cauldron hadn't made a move, yet the attack of that Earthly Immortal Realm expert had been obstructed.
When he saw the being that had saved him in this time of danger, Chen Xi was stunned once again and revealed an expression of disbelief. It was actually the dark golden colored Emperor Ant!
Chen Xi stared his eyes wide open, and he dared to thump his chest and guarantee that he was absolutely not mistaken. It was that Emperor Ant that had lent him a hand earlier.
"Hmm? What's going on?" All of the Earthly Immortal Realm experts were astounded. Some refused to believe it was true and thought the Emperor Ant had accidentally saved Chen Xi's life.
So in the next moment, someone made a move against Chen Xi once again. But, the outcome was without exception, all the attacks were obstructed by the Emperor Ant and were unable to injure Chen Xi in the slightest.
At this moment, all of those Earthly Immortal Realm experts couldn't maintain their composure any longer. They'd fought so fiercely here, yet that kid actually obtained the assistance of the Emperor Ant. Isn't this too unjust?!
This scene angered them to the point they were on the verge of spitting blood. If Chen Xi didn't make an appearance, then it would be fine even if they fought to the death. But, he just had to appear and ascend the divine tree in such a relaxed manner, and this comparison caused these Earthly Immortal Realm experts to be on the verge of going mad.
This is unfair!
He's just an extremely weak junior, so why does he get such special treatment?
If it wasn't for them being aware that this scene didn't occur on a combat ring, nor was there any judge, they would surely stomp their feet and curse at Chen Xi for cheating.
Chen Xi heaved a long sigh of relief instead, and his heart finally returned to its place.
He was similarly unable to figure out why that Emperor Ant would be so protective of him, and it caused him to be extremely bewildered. In the end, he could only give credit for all of this to the Dark Parasol sapling.
At any rate, he'd relied on this divine object all along the way here, so it seemed like only…it was capable of doing all this, right?
After that, Chen Xi stopped thinking about it any longer and started moving. From the beginning until the end, he entirely never noticed that the tiny ant on his shoulder moved its feelers about towards the Emperor Ant that was in fierce battle, and it seemed to be signaling something and bidding farewell.
After a short moment, Chen Xi felt his entire body relax as he'd instantly left the envelopment of the battlefield, and then he immediately transformed into a flowing ray of light that charged towards the peak of the divine tree.
His speed was extraordinarily swift, and he vanished in the blink of an eye.
"This… This junior is actually unaffected by the restrictions!?" When they saw this scene, all those Earthly Immortal Realm experts were shocked to the point their eyeballs almost fell out.
After all, they'd suffered the effect of layer after layer of restrictions since the base of the divine tree, causing it to be difficult for them to make a single step, and they'd exhausted a great deal of effort to arrive here.
On the other hand, Chen Xi had actually charged up onto the divine tree instantaneously and vanished. Moreover, from the beginning until the end, he'd utterly not triggered any restrictions, so how could they accept this?
The heavens are unjust!
The Earthly Immortal Realm experts roared in their hearts, and they felt both envious and disgruntled. The thing that caused them the most grief and indignation was that up until now, the damnable Emperor Ant lay across their path and obstructed their advancing footsteps.
