Chapter 2150 Raw 2255 : All Things Rejoicing Together
“Whoosh! Whoosh! Whoosh!”
As Xiao Chen charged at the white mastiff, the many mastiffs pounced at him, trying to block his way.
Under the white mastiff’s command, the originally stupid and ferocious mastiffs understood when to advance and retreat. They knew how to block him and delay him and how to harass and mess up his rhythm.
This made it very difficult for him to advance. That white mastiff remained standing on higher ground.
The white mastiff did not move back, only looking at Xiao Chen coldly. It was as if it was letting him see hope.
The mastiffs in the other directions took this opportunity to close in. Before Xiao Chen cleared half the distance, his Alloy Battle Armor had already turned black from the mastiffs’ blood.
The mastiffs did not actually possess a body of flesh and blood. While it was called blood, it was actually the strange liquid that existed in their bodies.
After covering half the distance, Xiao Chen was horrified to discover that not only had he failed to shorten the distance between him and the white mastiff, but he was even farther away.
“What’s going on?”
After some confusion, Xiao Chen suddenly understood. The white mastiff had commanded the other mastiffs to shift his trajectory. While it looked like he advanced while killing mastiffs, he had been led by the nose, his direction diverted as he moved about.
If Xiao Chen had not realized it, he would not reach the white mastiff even if he killed for eternity.
This strategy gave Xiao Chen a chill. This level of intelligence was beyond some of the intelligent humans.
To think that the white mastiff was so smart.
When Xiao Chen thought about how a dog managed to fool him, he could not help feeling angry. Furthermore, despite killing for so long, there did not seem to be any impact. This caused his normally calm mental state to fluctuate.
Xiao Chen looked up and saw that white mastiff looking at him coldly. However, it now felt like the white mastiff had an expression of mockery.
Calm down. If I get careless, I might die here.
Every month, there would be outstanding talents falling in the Faux God World, losing their great future.
Previously, Xiao Chen had been shocked that human cultivators could fall to Faux Beasts despite having so many trump cards and means.
Now, he had fallen into similar danger. If he got careless, he would die.
This was somewhat ironic.
Xiao Chen left the state of Martial and Soul as One. Given the current situation, he would not finish killing all the mastiffs before his Veritable Essence Energy and Soul Energy ran out if he remained in that state. Hence, he might as well save his energy for this white mastiff.
He could no longer retreat; the mastiffs behind had already closed in. Right now, his only chance at survival was to keep advancing.
“Humph! I do not believe that I, Xiao Chen, will die to a pack of dogs!” Xiao Chen snorted coldly and waved his hand. Then, a painting unfurled slowly.
The painting gradually soared into the air. When it completely unfurled, a Taiji Yinyang Flame Diagram covered the sky.
The Universe Origin True Flame and the Heavenly Snow Divine Flame chased each other in the sky. Yinyang, four divisions, the eight trigrams, and other scenes appeared around the Taiji Yinyang Flame Diagram.
Xiao Chen held his saber with his right hand and raised his left palm to the sky, circulating the Taiji Yinyang Flame Diagram at full force.
Immediately, an overwhelming might and pressure spread out from the Taiji Yinyang Flame Diagram. Then, he ferociously pulled his hand back, causing the Taiji Yinyang Flame Diagram to descend.
The Taiji Yinyang Flame Diagram appeared under Xiao Chen’s feet, followed by the Taiji force field, trapping most of the mastiffs.
As Xiao Chen trod the line between Yin and Yang, his position changed continuously. The saber in his hand moved relentlessly, killing the mastiffs.
The white mastiff became somewhat flustered. It could not adequately command the other mastiffs in the Taiji force field. When trapped in the Taiji force field, the mastiffs moved slower and also had to block Xiao Chen’s saber light. The mastiffs were already struggling to look after themselves and could not carry out the white mastiff’s orders.
Without the command of the white mastiff, these were only some frenzied beasts. They reverted to their base nature and no longer posed a significant threat to Xiao Chen.
Initially, Xiao Chen had wanted to keep this as a trump card against the white mastiff. Now, the situation forced him to bring it out in advance.
“Whoosh! Whoosh! Whoosh!”
Xiao Chen moved like lightning. As he controlled the Taiji Yinyang Flame Diagram, he weaved through the many mastiffs, advancing quickly.
Soon, he approached the white mastiff.
“Resolving the Mundane!”
Xiao Chen did not hesitate to enter the state of Martial and Soul as One. He soared into the air and executed Resolving the Mundane while amplifying his killing Qi sevenfold.
However, something strange happened. Although he had moved very quickly, that white mastiff seemed to have seen through his move long ago.
It was like the white mastiff was an experienced cultivator. Before the eternal and inextinguishable saber light formed fully, its white figure pounced over at lightning speed. It roared in midair and swiped its paw.
This paw attack contained many chaotic Great Dao, the usage of the Great Dao quite rudimentary and primitive.
However, this attack excelled in the vastness of the Great Dao, displaying a startling might. Before Xiao Chen finished executing Resolving the Mundane, it smashed his move.
Xiao Chen vomited a mouthful of blood as he moved back. Disbelief flashed in his eyes.
Before the white mastiff could follow up on its attack, he executed Firmament’s Rage with his left hand and threw a palm strike.
Immediately, a huge palm containing the power of the Five Element Divine Lightning and covered in saber light struck the white mastiff, which had pounced forward to kill Xiao Chen.
This palm strike smashed down the white mastiff’s colossal body.
The white mastiff showed shock in its eyes as well.
An experienced hunter, the white mastiff howled continuously. The other mastiffs did not remain trapped in the Taiji force field for long. They leaped into the air, moving as nimbly as a bird as they slowly surrounded Xiao Chen.
Buddha in the mortal realm, suppressing the surroundings!
Xiao Chen snorted coldly, and a Buddhist swastika appeared on his forehead. The sound of ancient Buddhist chanting reverberated in the air, and a hole appeared in the black clouds overhead. The supreme killing Buddha descended to the mortal realm and pushed its palms out in all directions.
This knocked more than one thousand mastiffs away in an instant, piercing holes in their body.
Xiao Chen chose to fight against the white mastiff to force it to focus on him and prevent it from commanding the other mastiffs.
Although the white mastiff tried to buy time, how could Xiao Chen let it do as it pleased? He executed In the Mortal Realm to knock back more than one thousand mastiffs. Then, he chopped down with an evil dragon saber materialized from the Asura Hell.
A World Destroying Evil Dragon appeared with this saber strike. It bared its fangs and claws as if it wanted to swallow the world.
Although the white mastiff was strong, it was a Faux Beast in the end. It could not practice Martial Techniques as humans could.
This was Xiao Chen’s strongest saber strike. It instantly gained him a suppressive advantage as it pressed down.
The colossal white mastiff looked like a snow mountain sent flying by an evil dragon. It landed with another ‘boom, opening a massive pit in the ground. Flames shot up into the sky.
The scene of hell disappeared, and Xiao Chen, wearing the Alloy Battle Armor, reappeared, looking valiant and tyrannical as he held up his saber.
“Whoosh! Whoosh! Whoosh!”
“Divine Firmament Nine Variations, Traceless Lightning Shadow!”
Xiao Chen left behind a few faint purple marks as he reappeared fifty thousand kilometers away. Then, he charged over at lightning speed.
A terrifying sound rang out, and visible ripples spread out. Caught off guard, Xiao Chen held his saber in front. Even so, the sound waves still knocked him back.
“Whoosh! Whoosh! Whoosh!”
After Xiao Chen regained his footing, he tightly grasped his Tyrant Saber and randomly brandished it in the air, scattering the remnant sound waves.
With these few swings, saber winds surged out, and a gale blew through the surroundings.
Xiao Chen’s long hair fluttered about in disarray, and some blood leaked out of a corner of his lips. Some doubt flashed in his eyes. This white mastiff was overly strong.
The strength of mastiffs lay in their packs and the frenzy that was deeply ingrained in their bones. Alone, a random heaven-defying Sovereign Personage could easily crush one.
While Xiao Chen’s cultivation was not high, he could face a half-step Sovereign Emperor.
Two paws appeared at the edge of the enormous pit; then, the white mastiff leaped out, charging at Xiao Chen again.
“Let’s see exactly how strong you are!”
A golden light appeared in Xiao Chen’s eyes as he instantly activated his Azure Dragon bloodline. At the same time, he reentered the state of Martial and Soul as One.
“Whoosh! Whoosh! Whoosh!”
The Tyrant Saber in Xiao Chen’s hand danced about randomly once more. Saber lights flashed in a black-and-white world, appearing dazzling.
Xiao Chen activated Martial and Soul as One along with his Great Desolate Eon bloodline. As he casually swung his saber, the strong wind it created made stepping forward a struggle for the white mastiff, which showed a surging aura.
Ten Thousand Dragons Picture!
An indistinct Ten Thousand Dragons Picture appeared behind Xiao Chen. Boundless dragon roars rang out. He started another intense fight with the white mastiff while in his strongest peak state.
There was no more time. Xiao Chen needed to deal with this white mastiff quickly, as the mastiffs that he knocked back earlier were rushing over.
However, while Xiao Chen was in his strongest state, he lacked the energy to execute his various Martial Techniques.
He already executed his strongest Mahāmāyā Abstinence Violation Saber Technique earlier and could not execute it again within a short period.
“I still have the Flawless saber Dao!”
Xiao Chen saw the mastiffs, which were licking their teeth, charging towards him. In the time it took for a spark to fly, he decided to use his Flawless saber Dao for one final attack.
The Flawless saber Dao did not focus on being perfect and flawless. It focused on a heart that pursued perfection.
The heart as a saber, the body as a saber, my hair as sabers, and my thoughts as sabers!
“Ding! Ding! Dang! Dang!”
Xiao Chen danced around while holding his saber. His movements appeared nimble and celestial. Strands of saber light appeared on his body. Three thousand strands of hair meant three thousand strands of saber light. Every part of the Alloy Battle Armor shone with resplendent saber light. A zither-like saber hum rang out in this vast wasteland.
Just at this moment, Xiao Chen suddenly thought of the first painting that Senior Fiendish Saber Xi Mu gave him.
Lush mountains, green water, white clouds, with wild cranes leisurely flying in the sky.
There is no one in the painting. Who do the lush mountains exist for?
There is no one in the painting. Who does the green water flow for?
I understand now!
Inspiration flashed in Xiao Chen’s eyes. He listened to the wondrous zither-like saber hum echoing in the vast wasteland. It reverberated in the mountains. It surged out on the wind. It rejoiced with all the things in this vast world.
However, if one opened one’s eyes and looked, the mountains were just mountains, and the rivers were just rivers. This was just an ordinary scene of the world.
There was no one in the painting. Who was the painting for?
The lush mountains were there for the lush mountains. The green water was there for the green water. The white clouds were for the white clouds…everything had a spirit; everything was a Fiend!
“What is a Fiend?!”
Xiao Chen reared his head back and guffawed. He suddenly stopped pointing his saber at the white mastiff, shifting its aim to the sky.
What is a Fiend? All things rejoicing with me!
The world fell silent. In the next moment, the vast wasteland rejoiced with Xiao Chen. Boundless saber light burst out of the tall mountains and the ground.
At this moment, all things rejoiced together. The vast wasteland released resplendent saber lights.
Aside from Xiao Chen, everything else got pierced with thousands upon thousands of saber lights. When the saber lights faded, all the mastiffs were dead, leaving only countless clumps of Primeval Divine Liquid floating in the surroundings.
