Book 12 – Immortal Strife (ch1010-1540)
Chapter 1011 The Mysterious Immortal Meng Xing
The sound of this voice hadn’t finished resounding in the air when a tall and robust figure had swiftly appeared.
This person had a focused expression and dense hair. His muscles seemed as if they were made from rocks and steel, and they emanated a feeling of explosive force. As he stood there casually, he was like a lofty mountain that was impossible to move.
Especially that his entire body was suffused with dense energy of the Laws and Immortal Force, and it rumbled through his entire body like a tidal wave while he revealed an extremely oppressive aura.
A Mysterious Immortal?
Chen Xi’s pupils constricted as he sensed an imposing aura that wasn’t inferior to Liang Bing from this person, and it was dense, seething, and extremely profound. So this person was surely a Mysterious Immortal without a doubt.
The others were shocked as well, and they revealed even more fearful expressions.
Only Xiao Yun who came from the Endless World smiled with disdain, and he swaggered off towards the distance with his attendants.
“Lord Meng Xing!” The middle aged man and old man were shocked when they saw this person make an appearance, and they seemed to have never expected that with Meng Xing’s identity, he would actually come to the Ascension Hall. They stood up and greeted him.
“Hmph! I asked all of you to stay here! Who dares to leave?” Meng Xing didn’t pay the slightest bit of attention to the middle aged man or the old man. Instead, and he grunted coldly with a voice that was like an explosive thunderclap. As he spoke, he suddenly stretched out his hand and grabbed, causing a shapeless forcefield to surge out and fiercely grabbed Xiao Yun’s group of three back here like he was grabbing up three chicks.
Thump! Thump! Thump!
Xiao Yun’s group of three rolled down onto the ground like gourds and let out shrill cries, and they didn’t even have room to struggle.
Merely this ability he revealed had shocked everyone that was present here.
Xiao Yun was in an extremely sorry state, and his expression sank instantaneously from being embarrassed in public. He swiftly stood up and pointed at Meng Xing as he shouted explosively with a grim voice. “How audacious! Do you know who I am?”
This fellow was really arrogant and domineering to actually dare to point at a Mysterious Immortal and berate him. This obviously displayed how arrogant and haughty Xiao Yun was before he ascended into the Immortal Dimension.
“Lord Meng Xing, he’s…” The middle aged man’s expression changed slightly as he hurriedly moved forward and sent a voice transmission in a love voice to notify Meng Xing of Xiao Yun’s identity, so as to prevent Meng Xing from completely offending the Solitary Origin Dao Sect.
“The Solitary Origin Dao Sect?” Meng Xing’s eyes narrowed slightly.
Xiao Yun laughed coldly as he said proudly, “Exactly. The ignorant are innocent. I can let bygones be bygones if you apologize to me.”
His voice hadn’t finished resounding through the air when Meng Xing revealed a savage smile and a mouthful of snow white teeth, and it was an extremely horrifying sight. He swung his hand to slap Xiao Yun flying with a bang, and he hit Xiao Yun to the point blood sprayed from his mouth while Xiao Yun let out endless howls of misery.
“Ptooey! Bastard! You even want me to fucking apologize? Are you even worthy? I’ll fucking kill you if you dare speak another word!” Meng Xing spat with an expression of disdain.
The hearts of everyone went cold when they heard this, and they had a deeper feeling of how overbearingly and domineeringly people of the Immortal Dimension did things because Meng Xing made a move just like that and didn’t give Xiao Yun any chance to speak.
At this moment, Xiao Yun instantly didn’t dare speak another word, and he just stared resentfully at Meng Xing as if he would repay Meng Xing tenfold in the future.
The middle aged man and old man laughed bitterly when facing this scene, yet they didn’t dare say anything.
Meng Xing even couldn’t be bothered about paying attention to Xiao Yun, and he swept Chen Xi and the others with his gaze before his dense brows knit together as he said, “Only this little bit of people ascended from the lower dimension this time?”
“Yes.” The middle aged man hurriedly answered Meng Xing.
“Nevermind, it is what it is.” Meng Xing shook his head and seemed to be slightly displeased. In the end, he waved his hand and said, “These ascenders have been expropriated on orders of Immortal Monarch Lin Hao. I presume both of you have heard of this matter.”
As soon as he finished speaking, he paid no further attention to the middle aged man and old man.
He turned around and looked coldly at Chen Xi and the others before he said, “Little Fellows that are from the lower dimension. All of you have heard me clearly, so I’ll cut to the chase. Follow me obediently, and you’ll naturally be given your freedom once the assignment is completed. If anyone dares to disobey, then don’t blame me for killing you!”
“Remember this! This is the Immortal Dimension and not your Mortal Dimension any longer. Only the strong have the right to speak here!”
“But what assignment do we have to complete?” An ascender asked with a weak voice while the others revealed extremely unsightly expressions. Never had they imagined that they would actually encounter such a thing after just arriving in the Immortal Dimension.
“All of you will know when we get there.” Meng Xing spoke coldly before he flicked his sleeve, causing Chen Xi and the others to be swept within his sleeve, and then he controlled an Immortal Vessel and swiftly tore through the sky.
“Exactly…exactly what is going on?” The middle aged man only recovered from his shock after a long time, and his expression was slightly unsightly.
“Alas, how can anyone guess the thoughts of Immortal Monarch Lin Hao? But I seem to have heard that it isn’t just our Cloudray City, the subordinates of Immortal Monarch Lin Hao are moving about the other nearby cities as well, and so long as they notice an ascender, the ascender would be taken away. No one knows why they’re doing this.” The old man sighed.
The thin middle aged man said with bewilderment, “The identity of these ascenders are related to the various powers of the Immortal Dimension, and they might be the descendant of a great figure. Could it be that Immortal Monarch Lin Hao isn’t afraid of offending others by doing this?”
“Hmph! Even the Immortal Court doesn’t care, so who would care about these matters?” The old man grunted coldly and said, “Not to mention that the three dimensions are about to undergo an upheaval. Does anyone have the time to care about these ascenders? For example, so long as we don’t say anything, then even if that Xiao Yun was killed by Lord Meng Xing, Daoist Xiao Long wouldn’t probably be aware of it.”
The middle aged man was stunned, and he laughed bitterly as he shook his head without end.
The sky of the Immortal Dimension was boundlessly high. According to legend, only terrifying existences that had attained the Immortal King Realm had the ability to determine the height of the Immortal Dimension’s sky.
Moreover, the Spatial Laws there were extremely solid and filled with peerlessly condensed energy of the Laws that even Heavenly Immortals were unable to tear open and teleport through, so they could only fly.
Even Mysterious Immortals could only teleport in an area of 500km, and it required an extremely high consumption of Immortal Force.
Only once one attained the Golden Immortal Realm and condensed Golden Immortal Laws would one be able to break through the restraints of the Spatial Laws and move freely through space.
An Immortal Vessel flew swiftly through the sky.
On the Immortal Vessel, Meng Xing sat cross-legged while his broad back remained ramrod straight, and he had a ferocious expression while he emanated an oppressive aura.
All the ascenders stayed obediently and silently in the hold with unsightly expressions, and the space between their brows were filled with deep worry.
Xiao Yun who’d come from the Endless World even gnashed his teeth while revealing an extremely livid appearance that terrified the attendants by his side to the point that they didn’t dare come close to him.
Only Chen Xi had a calm expression and was trying hard to adjust the vital energy in his body.
The benefits he obtained this time from advancing to the Heavenly Immortal Realm was extraordinarily great, and it could even be described as a pleasant surprise. According to his estimation, once the Immortal Force and Immortal Sense in his body recovered, and he condensed the energy of the Laws, then he would even not have to be afraid of existences at the Mysterious Immortal Realm!
Exactly, it was Mysterious Immortal Realm experts and not Heavenly Immortals.
Because Chen Xi’s reserves were truly too enormous, and he’d already arrived at an unprecedented state a long time ago while he was still in the Earthly Immortal Realm. His foundation was deep and condensed to the limit, and it was over an entire hundred times than those of the same cultivation.
Now that he’d overcome the tribulation and ascended into Immortality, the benefits brought about by his deep foundation was naturally immeasurable.
For example, if an ordinary Heavenly Immortal’s Immortal Force was a vast lake, then Chen Xi’s Immortal Force was a boundless ocean! If it was seen by other Heavenly Immortals, it would surely shock their eyeballs out.
Heavenly Immortal, Mysterious Immortal, Golden Immortal, Saint Immortal… My current cultivation is already extremely deep. So long as I cultivate in meditation, I don’t have to worry about being unable to advance into a higher cultivation realm.
Chen Xi sensed the Immortal Force that was swiftly filling up in his body, and he clenched his fists in secret.
His mentality was very good because he was clearly aware that he was no different than a newbie upon arriving at the Immortal Dimension, and if he wanted to gain a foothold in the Immortal Dimension, then it could only be accomplished through grasping an even more formidable strength.
With the assistance of the Dark Parasol Sapling, he was even able to improve his strength in a short period of time.
The only thing he lacked was the condensing of the Laws.
The Laws were supreme to Dao Insights, yet they came from Dao Insights.
Every single Grand Dao profundity could be condensed into a type of Law. The more condensed a Law was, the greater the strength it possessed would be, whereas under the circumstances that the Laws two people possessed were of the same strength, then the person who’d condensed more Laws would be able to exert an even more formidable strength.
One was a comparison of quality.
The other was a comparison of quantity.
It was absolutely clear.
But there were also some rare laws that couldn’t be differentiated like this. For example, the Devour, Oblivion, Creation, and other similar supreme Laws were sufficient for one to be unafraid of everything and howl proudly through the a region by just grasping a single one of them.
Unfortunately, all of this wasn’t suitable to be used on Chen Xi.
He didn’t just grasp the ordinary Grand Dao profundities like the five elements, Yin, Yang, wind, and lightning, he even possessed rare Grand Dao profundities like Creation, Oblivion, Paramita, Devour, and so on and so forth.
So when he condensed these Grand Dao profundities into the energy of the Laws, the strength he would be able to exert was sufficient to be described as astonishing.
Of course, the more Grand Dao profundities one had grasped meant that one would spend even more time than others to condense them into the energy of the Laws, and the level of difficulty far exceeded what was faced by others.
Perhaps this was the only drawback.
It isn’t suitable for me to condense the energy of the Laws at this moment. It wouldn’t be late to cultivate after I find an opportunity to free myself…
Chen Xi sensed the changes in the vital energy throughout his body before he stopped thinking any further.
The current situation didn’t allow him to continue thinking about all of this.
The Mysterious Immortal Meng Xing’s sudden appearance and actions of taking all of them away under the authority of Immortal Monarch Lin Hao had completely disrupted Chen Xi’s plans.
He was originally prepared to first find out about the situation within the Immortal Dimension after he obtained his Immortal Token, and then he would directly head to the Dao Emperor Academy according to his Senior Sister, Li Yang’s, instruction. Once he possessed a foothold in the Immortal Dimension, he would head to Misty Immortal Mountain to make contact with Qiu Yunsheng and find out everything about the Zuoqiu Clan.
But now, he obviously had no choice but to change his plans.
However, this new plan couldn’t be considered a plan as well because he was utterly unaware where Meng Xing was taking them, nor did he know what assignment they had to complete…
So he could only act according to the circumstances.
This sort of passive feeling was extremely uncomfortable and filled with the unknown and danger. If it wasn’t for Chen Xi’s Dao Heart having been tempered to the Heart Soul Realm, and he himself had experienced countless unexpected events, he would probably be anxious and at a loss for what to do just like the other ascenders.
“We’re here!” Right at this moment, the Immortal Vessel stopped abruptly before Meng Xing’s deep voice sounded out from outside the hold.
