Chapter 1637 (Raw 1619):
The Paths of Enemies Cross Easily
The entire dueling ring was shocked silent.
For many of these people, this was their first time seeing the Divine Might of the Great Desolate bloodline unleashed.
The instant the bloodline’s power activated, the shock and pressure everyone felt was imprinted indelibly in their memory for all their life, unforgettable.
Through the reports of these people, the legendary Great Desolate bloodline would continue to affect others, slowly becoming a mythological existence.
More accurately, during the Great Desolate Eon, ten thousand races vied with each other. The ancestors of these ten thousand races were all descendants of the Primal Chaos God Demons from the Mythological Eon. Describing their bloodlines as mythological was no exaggeration, even though the pure-blooded Great Desolate bloodlines no longer existed in this age…except for the Golden Crow.
The hearts of all the cultivators of the various sects and the pirates in the dueling ring pounded loudly and rapidly.
Something soul-deep in their blood made them tremble.
With the agitation of the two Great Desolate bloodlines, the weaker cultivators could not hold on, getting firmly suppressed on the ground, unable to get back up.
They were like worshippers prostrating themselves in reverence.
Furthermore, these were just bloodlines of the Great Desolate Eon’s ten thousand races and not the strongest hundred races.
During the Great Desolate Eon, ten thousand races fought each other, and the strongest hundred races emerged, smoothing the transition to the Epoch Eon. Their bloodlines were even purer, and the power they inherited was even stronger and long-lasting.
Xiao Chen felt shocked in his heart. However, he was not shocked at the Great Desolate bloodlines in the two’s bodies.
Instead, he was shocked at the combat prowess the other party instantly unleashed when they activated their bloodline power at will.
Xiao Chen could feel the strength of his Azure Dragon bloodline. This was especially so after his body underwent repetitive cleansing; his bloodline was a boundless treasure trove.
However, he could not use it at all.
Right now, the only benefits that the Azure Dragon bloodline brought Xiao Chen were just a somewhat stronger physical body, quicker replenishment of his Veritable Essence Energy, and faster recovery of his injuries.
He was still far from being able to unleash his bloodline.
I wonder, when will I be able to activate my bloodline freely?
Xiao Chen thought to himself, feeling some anticipation as well as depression.
Anyone would be upset at this, having a pile of treasures but being unable to do anything with it.
At the same time, Xiao Chen felt conflicted. When he was in the Kunlun Realm, the Blood-Soaked Dragon Emperor had not taught him how to activate his bloodline when he woke up back then.
Could there be some other mysteries behind it?
“Hahaha! Who else?! Who else dares to challenge me, Ling Yu?!” Ling Yu shouted in the arena.
Ling Yu exuded an overbearing air, increasing the pressure on everyone. No one dared to speak. Of course, no one dared to go and humiliate themself.
The manager of the dueling ring shook his head lightly. He waved his hand somewhat unhappily, then walked off.
On the other arena, although the elegant youth did not say anything, he did not withdraw his overbearing air, either.
That Ling Yu seemed to be an outstanding talent of the Black Cave Mountain. Xiao Chen wondered if he knew Ye Zifeng.
Xiao Chen looked at Ling Yu and thought,
They both come from the same blessed land. Maybe I can establish a connection with him.
That way, it should be easier for me to head to the Black Cave Mountain.
The other party must definitely have a sect inter-realm transportation formation.
Suddenly, Ling Yu turned his head and met Xiao Chen’s gaze.
Ling Yu’s heart thumped heavily all at once. In that instant, his bloodline surged as if it faced a rival.
The starlight that flickered on Ling Yu’s body turned even more resplendent and dazzling. No one could look directly at it.
What kind of bloodline power is this? It also feels like the bloodline of the Great Desolate Eon’s ten thousand races. However, it’s unfamiliar, probably one of the lesser bloodlines.
Unexpectedly, Ling Yu found a competitor with a casual glance around.
However, when Ling Yu saw that Xiao Chen was only a half-step Primal Core cultivator, he lost all interest. He turned his head and looked at Jiang Xuan. “Jiang Xuan, are we going to continue? I suddenly feel that this is really pointless.”
“Indeed, there are no true experts outside the blessed lands. How about this: let’s just have a fight with each other to decide the victory?”
Ling Yu’s lips curled up as he said, “I was thinking the same.”
Jiang Xuan smiled faintly, and a folding fan appeared in his hand. As he gently fanned himself, he quickly left this place, vanishing before everyone’s sight.
Ling Yu gently pushed off with his feet and left the arena as well.
However, for some reason, just as Ling Yu was leaving, he turned around in the air, coming back to land in front of Xiao Chen.
This startled everyone as they cast their gaze on Xiao Chen. Who was this white-clad youth who showed a calm expression?
To think that this person could get an outstanding talent from the blessed lands to turn around for him.
“Might I ask which sect you come from, or are you from another cluster? I do not seem to have heard of you before.”
Ling Yu was still somewhat curious about Xiao Chen. The three blessed lands were not far from each other.
Hence, the disciples from the different blessed lands often competed and were on rather familiar terms. Ling Yu was very sure that there was no one like Xiao Chen in the three blessed lands.
Xiao Chen smiled calmly. “I’m Xiao Chen. I do not come from any sect, just a wanderer.”
When Ling Yu heard that, he could not help feeling somewhat disappointed. Originally, he thought that Xiao Chen might be the disciple of some hidden expert. That way, even if Xiao Chen’s cultivation was low and was of a lower bloodline, he could still make friends with Xiao Chen.
Xiao Chen thought of the Black Cave Mountain’s matter and probed, “Might I ask if you have some time? I would like to take this opportunity to have a chat with you.”
Ling Yu thought that Xiao Chen was trying to climb the social ladder by making a connection with him, so he just smiled politely and said, “Sorry, I’m about to enter closed-door training to prepare for the battle with Jiang Xuan. Let’s chat again if we have the chance.”
After saying that, Ling Yu turned and left, not giving Xiao Chen a chance to say anything more.
Xiao Chen appeared somewhat stunned. However, after a while, he just smiled, not taking it to heart.
He was very clear on what Ling Yu was thinking. To him, this was not much of a problem.
With such strength and pride, this was nothing. However, Ling Yu was still too young, not even bothering to listen to what he had to say.
Feeling upset, Fei`er said, “Big Brother Xiao Chen, he just brushed you off.”
When Xiao Chen heard that, he could not help laughing a little. Such direct people like Fei`er were rare.
“Let’s go. It’s not really considered brushing me off. I do indeed want to see if I can reach an agreement with him on something and have my own motives. If he is not willing to speak with me, then so be it.”
Xiao Chen remained rather calm, not taking the dismissal to heart.
Had Ling Yu known that Xiao Chen had intended to use the golden Life Juice Source to trade for an opportunity to get to the Black Cave Mountain expeditiously, he probably would have felt so much regret that his innards would turn green. Even if he had to be shameless, he would have insisted on making the transaction with Xiao Chen.
The four and Wang Feng no longer remained, turning to leave.
However, the people in the dueling ring felt that Xiao Chen was incredible as they gazed at Xiao Chen’s departing figure. There were several people with higher cultivation than Xiao Chen’s in the crowd of more than ten thousand people, yet Ling Yu stopped only for him.
Although the two did not speak much, just this much already proved how extraordinary Xiao Chen was.
Right after leaving the dueling ring, Xiao Chen was stunned, pausing where he stood.
At the same time, an old man preparing to enter the dueling ring across him was stunned as well.
Xiao Chen remained stunned for a while before laughing, “What a coincidence! We meet again. It is truly a small world. What a chance encounter! How about I treat Senior to a drink? Take it as my gratitude for you saving me.”
That was right. The one across Xiao Chen was the Beast Governing Sect’s gray-clad old man.
However, the people at the gray-clad old man’s side were not his two disciples. Instead, they should be his good friends or something like that. Their cultivations were slightly weaker, early-stage Primal Core cultivators. However, they still gave off a strong suppressive aura.
The gray-clad old man smiled and replied, “It is indeed a small world. I heard that there were two geniuses from the blessed lands here, so I came over to take a look. How unexpected to meet Little Friend here! What a coincidence!”
However, I’ll decline the wine. Just hand over all the remaining Life Juice Source.
The last sentence was sent to Xiao Chen by voice projection. After all, the gray-clad old man did not want other people to hear it.
Xiao Chen smiled. He had risked his life to obtain that Life Juice Source, so how could he give it away to a stranger?
“Since Senior is not willing to accept my wine, I’ll take it as Senior being noble and giving up on it. I’ll take my leave, then.”
While inside the Pirate Hall, Xiao Chen did not fear the other party making a move on him. He merely smiled and calmly led the confused Xiao Suo and the others away.
The gray-clad old man’s two friends were likewise puzzled, not understanding what happened.
“My two old friends, will you help me with something?”
“There’s no harm in telling us what it is first.”
“When that fellow leaves the Pirate Hall, help me kill him!”
