Seeing the departure of Crown Prince Crocodile, Ye Xiwen finally breathed a sigh of relief. If Crown Prince Crocodile decided to fight just now, he would have to fight for his life. There was no other way despite the slim winning chance. The best Ye Xiwen could achieve was to let Crown Prince Crocodile suffer terribly. He was satisfied with just that result.
As soon as Crown Prince Crocodile left, the four burning corpses, without deterrence, immediately rushed towards Ye Xiwen.
“Clang!” The Emergence Immortal Exterminating Saber in Ye Xiwen’s hand instantly burst into a brilliant saber light. He wielded the Emergence Immortal Exterminating Saber in strain.
An astonishing saber aura instantly slashed out. A Transcendent Realm Sixth Level burning corpse was immediately split in half. In front of this Emergence Immortal Exterminating Saber, it had no chance to fight back.
“Puff!” Ye Xiwen spat out another mouthful of blood with his figure trembling slightly.
“Are you okay?” Yao Qian asked. She could feel that using this Emergence Immortal Exterminating Saber was a huge burden for him. A single slash would make him spat out a mouthful of blood essence.
Although this saber was powerful and scary, the ramifications were also the same. Ye Xiwen endured heavy backlash.
Ye Xiwen didn’t answer but shook his head. He was holding his breath now. If he were to speak, the breath would be gone. He wouldn’t be able to last long.
The pair of golden wings behind him flapped again. He immediately dashed out of the gap in the middle.
The burning corpse next to him filled his ears with roars. Another hand grabbed towards him. It was a Transcendent Realm Seventh Level burning corpse. If the burning corpse landed the hit, Ye Xiwen was certain that he would not be able to escape.
I have to fight!
Ye Xiwen became more determined.
He waved Emergence Immortal Exterminating Saber again in his hand. An amazing saber aura quickly spun in the sky. It looked like a halo spinning in the sky, directly causing ripples in the sky. The slash quickly entered the chest of this burning corpse. The heavy might tore the burning corpse in half.
Ye Xiwen spouted another mouthful of blood; he started to feel dizzy. Most of his qi was taken away. This Emergence Immortal Exterminating Saber was too costly to wield. Since he could not wield it entirely during the peak state, let alone he was severely injured already.
He quickly suppressed the injury on his body with the Phoenix Regeneration Technique, preventing it from worsening. He managed to stay flying.
After successfully sustaining a backlash, Ye Xiwen breathed a sigh of relief and rushed out directly. The other two burning corpses couldn’t stop him at all and let him escape.
After successfully escaping the palace, Ye Xiwen and Yao Qian both breathed a sigh of relief!
In a bottomless oceanic trench, there was silence around it. No creatures in the sea approached. There was a looming protective shield above the trench, dividing the trench inside and outside like two worlds.
In the trench, a man and a woman sat on the sea bottom. The tremendous pressure of the seawater beside them did not seem to cause any problems to them.
It was Ye Xiwen and Yao Qian.
Both of them were treating their injuries with breathing techniques. The first to recover was Ye Xiwen, who was fatally injured.
Phoenix Regeneration Technique was worthy of the top recovery martial techniques. Even if Ye Xiwen’s injury was more serious, he was one step ahead of Yao Qian in recovery.
After returning to the peak, Ye Xiwen breathed a sigh of relief. The situation just now was too dangerous. If he didn’t leave in time, he might fall into the hands of the terrifying burning corpse and get torn apart.
However, after his recovery was over, Yao Qian had already recovered, but she did not stop. Instead, she continued to attempt her breakthrough. After swallowing the flame essence, she planned to ascend to Transcendent Realm Sixth Level in one go.
She was already at Transcendent Realm Fifth Level Peak. There was only a tiny gap to enter the Transcendent Realm Sixth Level. This injury had become an opportunity instead; she wanted to utilize this opportunity to attain the Transcendent Realm Sixth Level.
There was a considerable gap between the Transcendent Realm Fifth level and the Transcendent Realm Sixth Level.
Among the nine Transcendent Realm levels, the first three levels were the initial stage; the middle three levels were the intermediate stage. After entering the Transcendent Realm Sixth Level, she was basically at the Transcendent Realm Intermediate Peak. Transcendent Realm Seventh Level would be the next stage.
Ye Xiwen saw that she didn’t leave directly, so he ignored her. He entered close cultivation too. He realized his shortcomings after the previous experience, especially compared to the top young figures like Crown Prince Crocodile. There was still a gap; a gap that allowed the opponent to run over him smoothly.
He needed to improve as soon as possible to catch up with the younger generation elites in Ancient Barrens. If others heard the news about it, they would think Ye Xiwen was too arrogant. However, Ye Xiwen did not see the process as challenging. After all, he was already at the top among the younger generation in True Martial Domain.
It was just a change of environment. There was no reason to downplay himself. Most importantly, despite having more geniuses in Ancient Barrens Domain than True Martial Domain, the cultivation environment was much more comfortable than the True Martial Domain. That would be Ye Xiwen’s advantage.
Like Yao Qian, Ye Xiwen also began to consume the flame essence. Although flame essence was extra helpful for people with fire-attributed cultivation techniques, Ye Xiwen did not cultivate fire-attributed cultivation techniques. Hence, the effect was relatively poor. Still, Ye Xiwen didn’t care less. Anyway, he had ten pieces of flame essence. As long as his cultivation realm could be improved, it was not a waste to consume them all.
At the moment the flame essence was consumed, the qi in Ye Xiwen’s body immediately boiled. Ye Xiwen’s body had gradually transformed into the physique of a phoenix. He had a good affinity with fire-attributed energy. Since the flame essence’s effect was similar, Ye Xiwen found it easier to utilize it fully.
These ten flame essences were definitely enough to transform Ye Xiwen’s fire spirit body characteristic to the next level. It produced a natural enhancement to the martial techniques of fire attributes.
The fire spirit body was also famous among many unique physiques. The Five Elements spirit body was famous. It pushed the control over element-attributed martial techniques to an extraordinary level.
Of course, the most important thing was to be able to advance Ye Xiwen’s cultivation.
The energy in the flame essence had gradually transformed into energy Ye Xiwen capable of absorbing. His cultivation also advanced bit by bit.
When Ye Xiwen pushed his cultivation to the Transcendent Realm Second Level Peak, it was already two years later. Ye Xiwen’s previous cultivation advancement was too fast. Now, Ye Xiwen wanted to recuperate this defect and consolidate the foundation.
On this day, Ye Xiwen continued to consolidate his foundation. Suddenly, a powerful aura burst out of Yao Qian’s body not far away. She couldn’t hold the aura in, and it shot straight into the sky.
Ye Xiwen immediately knew that Yao Qian had already attained a breakthrough, one step faster than him. However, Yao Qian didn’t move and seemed to be consolidating her new realm. It was only a month later that she finished consolidating her realm.
Yao Qian stopped her cultivation. Her aura at the Transcendent Realm Sixth Level was utterly different from the past. She had become more robust, definitely not just a little bit.
She looked at Ye Xiwen with a slightly complicated expression. Without this person, she would have been eliminated in the hands of the burning corpse. She would never have survived. Not to mention, she would be able to ascend into Transcendent Realm Sixth Level.
Although she helped Ye Xiwen previously, she still felt that Ye Xiwen helped her more. Most importantly, she did not need to take any real risks to help Ye Xiwen at that time, but Ye Xiwen came to save her with her life in danger.
Seeing that Ye Xiwen was still in close cultivation, she directly transmitted the voice, “Ye Xiwen, I will hold a gathering of young experts one year later. If you’re free from close cultivation at that time, please attend!”
After she finished speaking, a light shone from her feet. She flew straight out of the oceanic trench.
Ye Xiwen closed his eyes and didn’t get up, but it didn’t mean that he didn’t realize anything. He left some of his spiritual sense outside of him during his close cultivation.
A gathering of young experts a year from now?
Ye Xiwen was a little eager for it. He didn’t know what level he was among the young experts of the Flourished Cloud Sea Region. This would be an excellent opportunity to let Ye Xiwen grasp his standing.
Moreover, Yao Qian hosted it. Hence, attending young experts would not be inferior. This was precisely what Ye Xiwen needed.
However, Ye Xiwen did not dawdle in his thoughts any further but immersed in his cultivation. He did not pay too much attention to it. After all, he did not know whether he could be released from his cultivation after a year. If he failed to do so, he would miss it.
Ye Xiwen’s aura continued to grow stronger. He was challenging the Transcendent Realm Third Level.
He kept activating “Observing Person Scripture.” The Mini Universe in his body was rotating continuously, absorbing the rich power of flame essence.
In the past three years, he had consumed three flame essences. If Ye Xiwen majored in cultivation techniques with fire attributes, three flame essences worth of energy would be enough for him to directly enter the Transcendent Realm Fifth Level. However, Ye Xiwen merely stopped at Transcendent Realm Second Level Peak. But, Ye Xiwen didn’t care, nor felt that it was a pity.
Little by little, he struck the barrier to attain Transcendent Realm Third Level. In a blink of an eye, another year passed. Ye Xiwen’s aura gradually became more robust. He dissipated the realm barrier many times.
The Transcendent Realm Third Level’s realm barrier also became smaller bit by bit. Finally, Ye Xiwen launched another hit on the realm barrier.
“Boom!” Ye Xiwen’s aura finally soared into the sky, no longer stagnating.
