The tribulation cloud roiled while emanating an oppressive and heavy aura that instantly enveloped the entire sky above the Nine Radiance Sword Sect.
On the other hand, West Radiance Peak that was beneath the tribulation cloud was oppressed to the limit, and even the air seemed to be extremely heavy and condensed.
“Who’s about to overcome a tribulation?”
“It wouldn’t be Elder Chen Xi, right?”
“How could that be possible? Only a few years have passed since Elder Chen Xi overcame the last tribulation!”
“Then exactly who on West Radiance Peak would be about to overcome a tribulation? Look, that’s the Yin Yang Lightning Tribulation of the 2nd level of the Earthly Immortal Realm. Extreme Yin and extreme Yang are interwoven together, and its might is more than a few times more terrifying than the Azure Lightning Tribulation!”
“So in this way, it might really be Elder Chen Xi who’s overcoming the tribulation…”
Regardless of elder of disciple, everyone in the Nine Radiance Sword Sect was alarmed, and they looked at the West Radiance Peak from afar with surprised and bewildered expressions while they discussed animatedly.
A thunderclap shook the sky, and it was like the rage of the god of lightning that shook the world.
The Yin and Yang tribulation clouds were interwoven together and transformed the entire world into black and white. Half was pitch black like night, and the other bright as day, and it was bizarre and terrifying.
Everyone faintly noticed that numerous bolts of tribulation lightning were condensing within the depths of the tribulation cloud, and they were thick like chains and suffused with a terrifying and blazing radiant sheen. These bolts of tribulation lightning were interwoven together and caused it to seem like a while and a black millstone was circulating within the tribulation cloud.
“Tribulation lightning transforming into one, Yin and Yang forming into millstones!”
“Such a terrifying phenomenon has actually appeared. Even though it’s merely the first wave of the tribulation lightning, but since the ancient times until now, countless Earthly Immortal Realm experts have been swept into the millstone formed from Yin and Yang lightning tribulation before being crushed and obliterated for eternity!”
“If it’s really Chen Xi who’s overcoming the tribulation, then isn’t it too early? Once there’s a slight deficiency in his preparations, he’ll probably encountered a calamity.”
The Sect Master Wen Huating and all the higher-ups were astounded and shocked as they looked at the Yin Yang Lightning Tribulation that hung down like a funnel above the sky.
“Come, let’s go to the West Radiance Peak. No matter who is overcoming the tribulation, we have to make proper preparations to stand on guard.” Wen Huating took a deep breath and decided.
Everyone else nodded.
However, right at this moment, a blazing ray of light rose from West Radiance Peak, and a tall figure with an extraordinary bearing arrived beneath the tribulation cloud.
When they saw this extremely familiar figure, even though everyone in the Nine Radiance Sword Sect had guessed it was Chen Xi, they couldn’t help but feel slightly shocked when they saw Chen Xi really appear.
If their memories served them correctly, then less than six years had passed since he overcame the tribulation last…
How could he possibly greet the second lightning tribulation in such a short period of time?
This was an unprecedented event!
Before everyone could return to their senses, Chen Xi who was beneath the cloud suddenly erupted with boundless golden light, and it illuminated the world and covered the world in a gold and hazy sheen.
That was Virtue Goldlight, and it was for the sake of concealing his aura as a ‘variant.’
Sure enough, as soon as the Virtue Goldlight appeared, the wisp of destructive energy of judgment that was being nurtured within the depths of the rumbling and surging black and white tribulation lightning millstone vanished without a trace.
Only the pure energy of the tribulation remained.
But even then, the impetus of the tribulation lightning still far exceeded the ordinary, and this was obvious to the eyes of all. So long as the Yin Yang Lightning Tribulation were to descend, it would surely be extremely terrifying.
The tribulation cloud rumbled and was on the verge of descending.
However, right at this moment, Chen Xi suddenly howled into the sky before he opened his arms wide and emanated boundless talisman markings that condensed into a pitch black and profound Divine Talisman diagram.
The diagram seemed as if it was formed from numerous stars that circulated endlessly, and it seemed to conceal a blackhole and emanated an extremely powerful devouring energy.
As soon as it appeared, it charged into the depths of the tribulation cloud!
When they saw this scene, the eyeballs of everyone almost fell out of their sockets. He’s doing it again! He’s taking the initiative to make a move against it again!
This wasn’t just fierce, this was simply ferocious!
Every single Earthly Immortal Realm expert was trembling with fear and heavy in the heart when overcoming the tribulation, and they would seem as if they were going against a great enemy. But Chen Xi on the other hand would take the initiative to go against the tribulation lightning every single time, and he seemed as if he didn’t take the heavenly tribulation seriously. How could such ferocious actions not shock the others?
In the depths of the tribulation cloud, waves suddenly arose along with the entrance of the Devour Divine Talisman, and it roiled violently. The black and white tribulation lightning roared and rumbled as if it was a lightning dragon whose reverse scale had been touched.
However, to the astonishment of everyone, no matter how the black and white tribulation lightning roiled, it was actually helpless against the Devour Divine Talisman, and it was devoured greatly instead.
When looked at from afar, Chen Xi’s tall figure emanated boundless golden light, and he raised his hand and pressed it towards the sky, causing his palm to charge deep into the tribulation cloud and become linked to the Devour Divine Talisman.
On the other hand, the black and white tribulation lightning were like two enormous dragons that had their heads grabbed. They struggled ceaselessly within the tribulation cloud, causing a myriad of sparks to fly out along with boundless arcs of lightning, and it was extremely astonishing.
But no matter how they struggled, Chen Xi’s figure didn’t move in the slightest like a solid rock, and his palm firmly controlled the Devour Divine Talisman without swaying in the slightest.
Moreover, along with the passage of time, the energy of the black and white tribulation lightning was gradually weakening as most of the energy of the tribulation lightning was absorbed by the Devour Divine Talisman and converted into the energy of the Divine Talisman, so it caused the might of the Devour Divine Talisman to become even more formidable instead.
This was why the Devour profundity was terrifying. It was capable of transforming everything in the heavens and the earth into energy for one to utilize. So long as something was adhered to by the Devour profundity, then no matter if it was man or object, its energy would be completely absorbed.
Moreover, this sort of supreme Grand Dao was the exclusive technique of the primeval divine beast Roc!
For example, the Roc transformed into a fish in the sea and a bird in the sky. Its unfolded wings could cover 45,000km in area, and a light flap of it was capable of allowing it to fly into the sky and wander through the universe.
So how could the Grand Dao profundity it possessed possibly by ordinary?
This profundity of Devour was inherited from the Roc bone that his Third Senior Brother had given him, and it came from the Divine Ability, Stellar Lightningform. Now, when it was executed in the form of a Divine Talisman, this scene before everyone’s eyes was the true embodiment of its might!
When they saw such a scene, everyone in the Nine Radiance Sword Sect was shocked and gasped repeatedly because this didn’t look like someone overcoming the tribulation lightning, and it instead seemed like someone controlling and subduing the tribulation lightning!
Undeniably, these scenes were bound to be branded in the hearts of everyone present here, and it would probably be something they were impossible to forget for their entire lifetimes.
Before long, the tribulation lightning was eliminated, and the tribulation cloud dispersed, whereas the Devour Divine Talisman that absorbed the boundless tribulation lightning surged into Chen Xi’s body under his control, and it transformed into raging energy that tempered his body.
His Blackhole World was expanding.
His Immortal Energy was rising explosively.
Even his soul was gradually strengthening.
When all the energy of tribulation within the Divine Talisman was completely refined, Chen Xi’s entire body emanated a vast and lofty aura of Yin and Yang interweaved together to form life.
It was the imposing aura that only a 2nd level Earthly Immortal Realm expert could possess.
In other words, Chen Xi’s strength had advanced a level and stepped into the 2nd level of the Earthly Immortal Realm!
Moreover, all of this had only occurred in a short period of less than six years.
If they didn’t see it with their own two eyes, every single person present here at this moment would probably not believe that someone was capable of accomplishing this in such a short period of time.
When facing all of this, Chen Xi seemed as if he’d accomplished something of little importance, and he flashed back into his residence in a relaxed and indifferent manner as soon as all the energy of tribulation was refined.
But to everyone else present here, everything that had occurred today was bound to cause them to be unable to calm themselves down in a short period of time.
“This little fellow…” Wen Huating sighed with a complicated expression on his face. Even though he was sighing, his voice carried a feeling of pride, satisfaction, and extreme proudness.
The other higher-ups of the Nine Radiance Sword Sect were like that as well.
“If it goes on according to this speed, then perhaps he’ll really be able to possess the strength to go against Bing Shitian after over 60 years have passed.” Elder Lie Peng spoke after pondering deeply.
Wen Huating was stunned, and then he waved his hand and said, “Don’t mention this matter in the sect in the future so as to avoid affecting Chen Xi’s state of mind.”
Everyone nodded endlessly when they heard this.
The invitation Bing Shitian sent out was truly too disgusting. If it was any one of them, they would have probably been affected a long time ago, and they would either become dejected and dispirited or go risk their lives in fury. Very few of them were capable of preventing themselves from becoming unsettled and furious.
Fortunately, Chen Xi was obviously not someone they could compare to, and a clue of this could be discerned from the imposing aura he possessed as he easily overcame the lightning tribulation earlier.
This caused all the higher-ups of the Nine Radiance Sword Sect to heave a sigh of relief.
Truthfully speaking, they were truly worried that Chen Xi would be unable to endure this blow and cause negative feelings to arise in him because that would affect his cultivation and would conform to Bing Shitian’s intentions.
From this moment onward, Chen Xi entered into a state of closed door cultivation once more, and he stayed in seclusion, causing no one to see a trace of him after that day.
Just like this, another five years swiftly flowed by like the passage of water.
On the other hand, an entire 50 years had passed in the world of stars.
On this day, expanses of vast and powerful tribulation clouds converged once more in the sky above West Radiance Peak. The cloud was bright and multicolored, and it was clear like glass. It was suffused with a misty and illusory sheen, and the miraculous part was that it was suffused with strands of dense sweet fragrance.
The strands of sweet fragrance were like the breath of a lover. It drifted through the heavens and the earth and seemed as if it was capable of invading the depths of one’s soul, causing one’s mind to be lost within it and be unable to free themselves from it.
The Glass Lightning Tribulation!
When they noticed this scene, the entire Nine Radiance Sword Sect was stirred. Especially when they saw that this Glass Lightning Tribulation had actually converged above the West Radiance Peak once more, everyone was even at a loss for words.
Or perhaps disbelief?
This sort of feelings was truly too complicated. After all, only five years had passed, yet Chen Xi actually greeted the third level of the heavenly tribulation, the Glass Lightning Tribulation. How should they react to this?
Even if it was Wen Huating who possessed extensive experience and knowledge, the corners of his mouth couldn’t help but twitch fiercely when he saw this scene.
Of course, this was surely a tribulation that belonged to Chen Xi because every single expert at the 2nd level of the Earthly Immortal Realm had to experience the Glass Lightning Tribulation to advance into the 3rd level of the Earthly Immortal Realm.
It was a lightning tribulation that didn’t just possess extraordinarily formidable might, it was capable of causing layer upon layer of phenomena to disturb one’s state of mind!
Just like five years ago, Chen Xi’s figure transformed into a golden ray of light that shot into the sky once more, and he appeared beneath the sky while his entire body emanated boundless Virtue Goldlight.
The only thing different when compared from five years ago was that when facing the Glass Lightning Tribulation, Chen Xi actually sat cross-legged with a tranquil expression in midair and closed his eyes tightly.
He didn’t seem like he was overcoming a tribulation, and he seemed like a monk that had entered meditation instead!
