Chapter 2193 Raw 2300 : Departure
Immortal and Martial dual cultivation, righteous and demonic in one body—this was Xiao Chen’s Martial Dao.
Xiao Chen sat down, crossed-legged, and closed his eyes. Then, he used the Ten Thousand Dragons Art to drive that Divine Energy Sea. Ripples immediately spread out on the sea surface.
If it were an ordinary Cultivation Technique, even Xiao Chen’s Purple Thunder Divine Incantation, refining Divine Energy would be beyond him.
Ten Thousand Dragons Art, soaring dragons dancing in the air, playing in the sea, and flying in the clouds. Hiding, or flying, or waiting…embracing ten thousand dragons in the world. With ten thousand dragons soaring in the sky, seeking a reversion and forming an Ancestor Dragon’s lineage!
Xiao Chen recited the Ten Thousand Dragons Art’s incantation in his heart, slowly circulating his energy. Ripples appeared on the Divine Energy Sea, and waves slowly soared up.
Four hours passed, and a dragon image formed by Divine Energy broke out of the sea. Its roar rang out and echoed in the surroundings.
Immediately, light and shadow flickered on Xiao Chen’s body. The Dragon Might that spread out appeared substantial.
This was the first time Xiao Chen formed a dragon image with Divine Energy. Now that his Dragon Might gained a divine nature, there was a tremendous difference in his dragon image compared to the past—as different as clouds and mud.
Xiao Chen calmed his emotions, unhurriedly driving this Ten Thousand Dragons Art.
This Ten Thousand Dragons Art was not easy to cultivate. Previously, he only needed to give a Cultivation Technique a quick read or two before he could freely circulate his energy and cultivate it, controlling it as he desired.
After four hours cultivating the Ten Thousand Dragons Art, he only managed to form one dragon image. His progress was indeed somewhat slow.
According to what Xiao Chen comprehended, he would be truly initiated only after he materialized a Ten Thousand Dragons Picture above his Divine Energy Sea.
Time slowly passed. At some point in time, an extremely soft, cold snort rang out in the vast mountain range.
A resplendent saber light flashed above Fiend Cloud Hall. This saber light disappeared in a flash. It moved too fast for even an ordinary Sovereign Emperor to see clearly. Anyone slightly weaker would not see anything.
A figure flew out, but a terrifying aura froze the space-time here.
A miserable cry rang out five hundred thousand kilometers outside Fiend Cloud Hall.
A golden dragon image shattered. In the next moment, the bones of that person shattered, and scarlet light shot out in all directions.
“Humph!” A handsome and fiendishly pretty youth holding a saber appeared.
A saber light appeared, and faint ripples spread out in the air, radiating five million kilometers out in an instant. Space became like a surging wave. Saber intent filled every single corner.
“Ah! Ah! Ah!”
Miserable shrieks that came from the soul rang out. The fluctuations devastated the scarlet light trying to flee.
“Senior Fiendish Saber, spare me!”
The remaining scarlet light coalesced into a golden dragon image. However, the golden light coming from the golden dragon image appeared incredibly faint, looking extremely miserable.
It turned out that this handsome and fiendishly beautiful youth was Fiendish Saber Xi Mu. He said coldly, “You have continuously wandered around my Fiend Cloud Peak for the past five years. I just pretended that you did not exist. Did you really think that I did not see you?”
Fiendish Saber Xi Mu did not give this person a chance to explain at all. He merely let out a cold shout and sheathed his saber. The waves scattered, and space returned to normal. Feeling greatly relieved, that dragon image fled.
When that dragon image scattered, Fiendish Saber Xi Mu quickly aged, reverting to an old man.
Sometime later, Lu Benwei suddenly appeared. Then, he reported softly, “It is as Master guessed. A Faux God received him. It was a Golden Dragon Race expert with horrifying strength.”
Xi Mu barked, “They are truly seeking death. If they tried to do this in the past, I would have charged over to their Martial God Palace to seek justice!”
Going to a Faux God’s place and hiding was too disrespectful. Any Faux God would get angry about that.
“It looks like Little Brother Xiao Chen offended some incredible people in the Dragon Race. However, Master making a move this time showed Master’s stance on this. At the very least, no one will seek trouble for Xiao Chen for a while.”
Xi Mu smiled coldly and said, “How is this seeking trouble for him? They are trying to kill him. This fellow is about to go out. Those people must be very anxious. If I just close an eye and let them be, they would definitely take a risk and try.
“Although Xiao Chen is not my disciple, he did stay at Fiend Cloud Hall for five years, after all. Benwei, I have something for you to do.”
Lu Benwei nodded. After listening, he nodded again.
Xiao Chen’s heart pounded heavily as he arrived at his residence after rushing all the way. He could not suppress his agitation.
After that attempt failed at the Ice Fire Wasteland, those people still did not give up. If not for cultivating bitterly at Fiend Cloud Hall, I would have died several times already.
No wonder Big Brother Lu remained outside my house to cultivate for the past five years, nearly always accompanying me.
So, he was protecting me. No wonder…no wonder Senior Fiendish Saber told me to stay in Fiend Cloud Hall for these three days.
Xiao Chen found this terrifying after thinking about it. He had spent his days in the Faux God World in a relatively calm and dry fashion. For the past few years, he had been immersed in cultivation, comprehending the Saber Dao Domain. He simply had no time for distractions. He also had not expected to run into any danger in Fiend Cloud Hall.
Only today did he suddenly discover that great danger had been lurking around. It turned out that he could have died at any moment in the past five years.
Had Xiao Chen not worked on cultivating the Ten Thousand Dragons Art, which allowed his sharp senses to capture that flash of light and check, he would not have realized anything.
“I have to revisit the ancient Azure Dragon city soon.” Recognizing the danger that he was in and the fact that he did not have any trump cards to protect himself with, Xiao Chen did not feel safe.
He could only go to the ancient Azure Dragon city. Only that place had trump cards he could use to protect his life.
Three days later, Mu Zifeng came to Fiend Cloud Hall to bring Xiao Chen back to the Heavenly Alliance.
“Unexpectedly, you have been staying at Fiend Cloud Hall for the past few years. This Xi Mu is a famous eccentric. You are not his disciple, yet you can stay here. How incredible,” Mu Zifeng said, finding it slightly strange. Clearly, he was aware of Xi Mu’s fame.
Xiao Chen did not deny anything. He performed a cupped-fist salute and said, “Greetings, Lord Mu.”
“Alright, alright, there is no need to be so polite. The Peach Blossom Sovereign Emperor and I are old friends. Back then, we went through life and death together. Unfortunately, he made his choice. Otherwise, he would not be in an inferior position to me. You are his follower. Although he did not ask me to take care of you, there is no need for you to be a stranger,” Mu Zifeng said, waving his hand and smiling faintly.
Xiao Chen did not expect the Peach Blossom Sovereign Emperor to have a connection to this Lord Mu.
Given this, their relationship became significantly more intimate.
The two chatted for a while before Lu Benwei came over to send off Xiao Chen.
The interesting thing was that Lu Benwei also called Zhang Yushan and the other two junior brothers over to send off Xiao Chen.
The three appeared unwilling. Clearly, they came because of Lu Benwei. However, they could not refuse. Otherwise, they definitely would not come.
This was especially so for Zhang Yushan. He felt somewhat uncomfortable upon seeing Xiao Chen. His junior brothers, who were at the side, found this strange. They asked, “Senior Brother, why are you touching your face? The swelling already subsided; there is no need to feel afraid.”
Zhang Yushan felt unbearably infuriated. His two junior brothers were as stupid as dogs, touching his sore spot.
However, Zhang Yushan could not vent his anger in front of so many people now; he could only send off Xiao Chen with Lu Benwei.
“Brother Xiao Chen, take care. I hope you will be able to spread your wings in the Heavenly Alliance. You possess an unlimited future.” Zhang Yushang steeled himself and said some polite words.
Xiao Chen smiled faintly and reciprocated the courtesy, not holding a grudge over the past.
“Goodbye, then. I’ll leave Senior Xi Mu to you all in the future. Big Brother Lu, thank you for taking care of me these past few years.”
Xiao Chen gave Lu Benwei a meaningful look. Then, he performed a cupped-fist salute and bowed.
Lu Benwei did not mind. He laughed softly and replied, “You are too polite. With Lord Mu protecting you, nothing should go wrong with your trip back.”
A bright light flashed in Mu Zifeng’s eyes. As a very meticulous person, he managed to notice an undercurrent in Lu Benwei’s words.
Nothing will definitely go wrong when he comes with me? Why did Lu Benwei purposely say that?
After leaving Fiend Cloud Hall, Mu Zifeng asked, “Xiao Chen, what trouble did you run into in the Faux God World?”
Xiao Chen’s heart skipped a beat. After thinking for a while, he decided not to say anything.
This was the grudge between Xiao Chen and the Golden Dragon bloodline. He did not want to involve the Heavenly Alliance and cause too much trouble.
“Since you are not willing to say, I will not push you. In any case, you just need to remember that you are now a formal member of the Heavenly Alliance. Although our Heavenly Alliance is not as strong as the other super factions, we do not fear them, either.”
Xiao Chen nodded to indicate his understanding.
“Come with me to report to the Heavenly Alliance; then, we will formally confirm your status.”
After this, Xiao Chen would leave the Faux God World. Who knew when he would come back?
Xiao Chen turned his head back to take one last look at the Holy Domain’s Divine Capital. He sensed someone observing him.
However, he did not dwell on this. Many people in the Faux God World paid attention to his departure. Even if he knew who was watching him, it would be useless.
If Xiao Chen was strong enough, he could follow that gaze and see that the person watching him wore a mask.
