Talisman Emperor - Chapter 393 – The Eye of Divine Truth
Qing Xiuyi’s eyes were clear like water, and her entire body was enveloped in a hazy mist as if she was a celestial maiden that was aloof from the world. She raised her head to glance at the halo in midair that emitted a vast and sacred aura, and a wisp of pride flashed past the depths of her eyes. Obviously, she was rather satisfied with her gains this time.
After she withdrew her gaze, Qing Xiuyi imperceptibly glanced at Chen Xi who was still sitting silently nearby, and she was slightly stunned before being lost in thought.
She clearly remembered that she was the last person that had walked out from the Martial Dao Sacrificial Altar. In other words, Chen Xi ought to have left it since long ago, yet he was still motionless at this moment. Could it be that he came back empty handed from the sacrificial altar?
However, right when Qing Xiuyi was perplexed in her heart, an extremely intense fluctuation suddenly stretched out from the Martial Dao Divine Throne that Chen Xi sat on.
When they noticed this fluctuation, everyone in Silken City practically instantly raised their gazes to look towards the sky above Chen Xi in unison.
This fluctuation was different from the fluctuation of everyone before it, and it was like a thunderclap that rose and fell as it resounded out in the heavens and the earth. Everyone noticed to their astonishment that the sky seemed to have been cast into a shadow, and it was gradually covered in a layer of black.
It was like a dark cloud had covered the sky, causing the entire heavens and the earth to seemed to have fallen into the still of night from daytime.
The sky was blotted out! Day was turned into night!
Everyone was dumbstruck. What Dao Grade martial technique would be able to bring forth such a vast and magnificent phenomenon?
Even all the Earthly Immortal Realm experts in Silken Palace revealed shocked expression as boundless cold lights bloomed from their eyes, and they seemed to want to pry into the secrets of the phenomenon in the sky, yet they came back empty handed.
However, it was precisely this that caused them to be shocked. Such a great phenomenon of the heavens and the earth has never appeared in the previous Allstar Meetings, exactly what Dao Grade martial technique has that kid obtained?
The entirety of Silken City was covered in darkness, and the darkness was so silent, still, and without the slightest sound of the wind, causing it so seem as if everything had fallen into an eternal silence.
As they gazed at such a terrifying phenomenon, the faces of everyone carried a wisp of astonishment, and even the expressions of Qing Xiuyi, Zhao Qinghe, Huangfu Changtian, and the others froze slightly.
It was in this bizarre silence that an extremely mysterious and profound eye appeared in the sky.
What kind of an eye was this?
Pitch black and profound, with countless flowing lights flying about within it as infinite amounts of talisman markings flickered into appearance. The rise and fall of the heavens and the earth, the movement of stars, the passage of time, the changes in the world for countless lifetimes… It seemed to contain all the infinite changes in the universe, and it was profound and boundless!
When looking at it from afar, it seemed as if even one’s soul would be swallowed by it!
Under the gaze of this eye that was like the ‘eye of the heavens,’ everyone present felt as if their hearts were seen through right until the depths of their souls, and it seemed as if all their secrets down to the slightest detail was seen through by this eye!
An indescribable cold flow of horror swiftly rose in the hearts of every single person. This feeling left them bewildered, it was as if their clothes were stripped under the gazes of everyone present, and they were unable to conceal themselves, unable to resist…
This profound and boundless eye vanished in an instant as if it had utterly not appeared. Moreover, along with this eye vanishing, the darkness in the heavens and the earth was dispelled, causing it to once again recover its clear skies and illuminated lands.
“Hu!” Everyone present simultaneously heaved a long sigh of relief when they saw this scene, and they felt a lingering fear in their heart. But, after that, they couldn’t help but arouse a wisp of shock in their heart. What…cultivation technique is this?
Within Silken Palace
“Divine Ability — The Eye of Divine Truth!”
“This is a formidable Divine Ability that’s ranked in the top 100 of the Divine Ability Gold Rankings of the three dimensions. How could it possibly appear within the Martial Dao Sacrificial Altar?”
“Exactly. Not to mention our Darchu Dynasty, a Divine Ability like this is rare even in the Dark Reverie. How could it have been obtained by Chen Xi? Isn’t this fellow’s fortune too heaven defying?”
Unlike the cultivators in Silken City, all the Earthly Immortal Realm experts instantly discerned what Divine Ability Chen Xi had obtained, and they instantly went into an uproar!
Dammit! Why was such a terrifying Divine Ability obtained by this damnable little thief? This is unfair, the heavens are simply too unfair! Within the hall, the expressions of Huangfu Jingtian and the others went grim as their eyes revealed expressions of resentment and fury, and they were filled with killing intent.
The enmity between them and Chen Xi was already extremely deep and irreconcilable. After all, they’d entrusted the Blacksun Pavilion with assassinating Chen Xi earlier, so when Chen Xi’s strength matured, how could he not take revenge upon them?
Not to mention the numerous Core Disciples of their sects had perished at the hands of Chen Xi, and this enmity could absolutely not be dropped.
This kid must be eliminated!
Of course, if Chen Xi was able to rank in the top 10 of the Allstar Meeting, then Huangfu Jingtian and the others could only swallow their bitterness. Because if they were to make a move against Chen Xi, then Emperor Chu would be the first to deal with them!
The reason was extremely simple, the disciples that were in the top 10 of the Allstar Meeting already possessed the qualifications to enter the Primeval Battlefield. If they were fortunate enough to enter the Dark Reverie, then they would be able to bring boundless benefits to the Darchu Dynasty. Under these circumstances, how could Emperor Chu possibly allow the top 10 disciples to be harmed?
I hope this damnable little thief retreats in defeat as soon as possible! Huangfu Jingtian and the others looked forward to Chen Xi’s footsteps stopping before entering the top 10 of the Allstar Meeting in their hearts.
“The third test has ended!” Suddenly, the voice of Silken Palace’s Artifact Spirit resounded out in the heavens and the earth from midair.
Subsequently, numerous golden lights descended from the heavens to envelop Chen Xi, Qing Xiuyi, Zhao Qinghe, and the other disciples that were amongst the top 100. In the next moment, they’d already been teleported to the square outside Silken Palace.
On the other hand, in midair, the 100 divine thrones and the ancient sacrificial altar at the center vanished in the sky, and not a single trace of them could be found.
At the square outside Silken Palace.
Chen Xi and the others appeared out of thin air, and then they glanced at each other, yet didn’t say anything.
An old man who wore a high crown and ancient clothes swiftly appeared before them. He was completely bathed in Immortal Energy, his figure faintly visible, and his entire body emitted a terrifying aura.
Chen Xi and the others were extremely shocked, and they instantly determined that this old man was probably the Artifact Spirit of Silken Palace, a formidable existence that had a strength comparable to a Heavenly Immortal!
“All of you are disciples with great fortune and possess strengths that are the best amongst those of the same generation. The final test is about to begin, and this test will decide if all of you will be able to be ranked in the top 10 or not. In a short moment…” When he spoke up to here, the old man was slightly stunned and seemed to have heard something, and he spoke once more after a short while. “Let’s go. His Majesty wants to personally meet all of you before the final test.”
Everyone present was shocked in their hearts. The competition hasn’t ended, yet his Majesty Emperor Chu wants to grant us an audience?
This is absolutely a supreme honor!
At this moment, a trace of anticipation couldn’t help but arise in Chen Xi’s heart. The current Emperor Chu… How great and mighty is he?
The old man swung his sleeve. Rays of light that were coiled with Immortal Energy instantly descended from midair to envelop Chen Xi and the others, and then the rays of light swiftly surged into their bodies.
Instantly, they felt that the True Essence and Shaman Energy that they’d exhausted since the Allstar Meeting began until now swiftly recovered to its previous state, and even some of their heavy injuries were completely healed.
All of them were refreshed in spirit and radiating health! “Be sure to remember that you’re prohibited from making noise in Silken Palace. There are numerous Earthly Immortal Realm experts and numerous civil and military officials, all of you must not be disrespectful. Come, follow me in.” The old man instructed before moving towards the palace.
Chen Xi and the others took a deep breath and had solemn expressions as they followed closely behind him.
Only Huangfu Qingying has an indifferent expression. As the daughter that was doted upon the most by Emperor Chu, she frequently came and went from Silken Palace, so she didn’t have too much reverence towards this palace that represented the supreme power and authority of the Darchu Dynasty.
So many Earthly Immortal Realm experts! At the instant they entered the hall, Chen Xi noticed with a single glance that both sides of the hall were filled with Earthly Immortal Realm experts, and there were around 100 plus of them.
Big Brother is the only Earthly Immortal Realm expert in the southern territory, yet I’ve seen so many here today. Probably more than half of the Earthly Immortal Realm experts of the Darchu Dynasty have converged here, right? Chen Xi was extremely shocked in his heart. He acutely noticed that numerous shapeless fluctuations enveloped every single inch of the space within the hall, and it was the might emanated from the Earthly Immortal Realm experts. Even though it was released unintentionally, it still caused Chen Xi, who was still at the Golden Core Realm, to feel a wave of pressure.
“Hmph!” Huangfu Jingtian sat amongst them. When he saw Chen Xi walk past before him, a wisp of an icy cold light flashed past his eyes as he grunted coldly, and he didn’t conceal his hostility towards Chen Xi in the slightest.
Nearby from him, Mo Lanhai, Daoist Long He, Lord Liu Xiao, Chong Xu the Unfettered, and Zhao Zimei grunted coldly in succession as well.
Chen Xi instantly knew in his heart that these six fellows were part of Huangfu Jingtian’s group.
At the same time, he noticed that his Big Brother Bei Heng who he hadn’t seen for many years nodded to him with a smile from a distant corner, and he slightly nodded in return.
“Eh, why did you bring these little fellows here?” The Civil Marquis asked with surprise.
“It was I that allowed them to come in.” Before the old man could speak, a stalwart and imposing black robed man suddenly tore through space to arrive here, and he arrived at the throne at the center that had nine dragons on it. His appearance was simple and handsome, and he emitted a might that shook the heavens and the earth as he looked down from his throne.
He was the current Emperor Chu, an existence that was supreme in the Darchu Dynasty!
The Earthly Immortal Realm experts and all the civil and martial officials stood up in unison before bowing as they said, “Greeting your Majesty!”
At practically the exact same time, under the signal of the old man that wore a high crown, Chen Xi and the others bowed in greetings.
“Fellow Daoists, please be seated. The Allstar Meeting is a grand event that occurs every 100 years in my Darchu Dynasty, there’s no need for such ceremony. Just take it as a friendly gathering to discuss the Dao. As for you little fellows, rise as well.” Emperor Chu waved his hand and completely didn’t care about these matters of ceremony.
All the Earthly Immortal Realm experts sat down right away, yet they didn’t dare make loud noises any longer.
As for Chen Xi and the others, all of them were careful and reserved, and they naturally didn’t dare be careless in the slightest. But in their hearts, all of them were guessing in their hearts. Why had his Majesty, Emperor Chu, granted an audience to all of us?
Could it be that it’s related to the final round of the Allstar Meeting?
