Above the blood lake, Xiao Chen closed his eyes as he treated his injuries. At the same time, he circulated the Purple Thunder Divine Incantation to recover his Magic Energy.
The spring of Magic Energy in Xiao Chen's sea of consciousness slowly recovered.
With the Purple Thunder Divine Incantation having reached the ninth layer, his Magic Energy recovered very quickly. His Magic Energy spewed out of a spring. In merely one hour, he had already recovered to a fifth of his peak state, much faster than in the past.
As for Xiao Chen's physical injuries, those were even easier to deal with. He just needed to be careful with his heart.
Xiao Chen had already injured his heart. Then, he used the Heartbreaking Stance, aggravating the injury, which was even more severe than the injuries to his other internal organs.
When he exerted himself, he would feel intense pain from his heart. This would directly impact his movements when in combat.
Although this injury was not fatal, it was the most problematic.
This was why it was best to not use the Heartbreaking Stance unless he was left with no other choice.
As Xiao Chen anxiously recovered from his injuries, the Heavenly Profound Holy Lady suddenly said, "Shadowless Saber Sovereign, the group of scarlet-clad people that you asked me to keep an eye on are currently heading over quickly."
Xiao Chen's expression changed slightly. He suddenly opened his eyes and said, "How can that be? How did they know…"
After being stunned for a while, he figured it out. It had to be those two Immortal Venerates. He already guessed long ago that the Penglai Sea's people and the Blood Clad Sect had some hidden connections.
Now, it looked like he was right. Otherwise, if not for those two Immortal Venerates telling on him, he would not be exposed.
The two Immortal Venerates must have thought that the Extreme Yang True Flame blasted the Shadowless Saber Sovereign into pieces. However, they did not hear an explosion in the end.
Only then did they realize he had survived and sought the Blood Clad Sect for help.
Xiao Chen guessed the truth of the matter in an instant.
The Heavenly Profound Holy Lady tapped the air, and a Spirit Fruit appeared from nowhere. "This is the Heart Nourishing Fruit. It is greatly effective at healing injuries of the heart."
"Why didn't you give it to me earlier?"
What was the point of giving it to him now? Even better medicine would not be able to heal his injuries instantly.
The Heavenly Profound Holy Lady retorted calmly, "You were the one who said that you didn't need anything else. You can't blame me for this."
Never mind. This is not the time to argue. Xiao Chen quickly consumed the Heart Nourishing Fruit, and the medicinal liquid flowed into his body, turning into warm and gentle energy covering his heart.
The pain from his injuries lessened significantly, allowing him to heave a slight sigh of relief.
The Blood Clad Sect's group consisted of nine people in all. Aside from the Ninth Heaven Martial Emperor Vice Sect Master, the eight Elders were Greater Heavenly Martial Emperors at the very least.
Even at his peak, Xiao Chen would have to be careful when dealing with such a group. In order to subdue them, he would have to use the Divine Lightning Eye. However, he had recovered only a fifth of his Magic Energy and could not use it now.
Will I have to retreat?
Xiao Chen looked up at the Taiji Yinyang Flame Diagram that was currently absorbing the Void Hell Flowers and the Extreme Yang True Flames. Then, he got an idea and conceived of a plan.
"Dong! Dong! Dong!"
Footsteps resounded. The Blood Clad Sect's Vice Sect Master Can Minghuo quickly rushed over, leading the Blood Clad Sect's Elders.
"The Blood Clad Sect?"
Xiao Chen opened his eyes while seated on the throne, appearing somewhat weak as he spoke with shock and uncertainty in his voice.
When Can Minghuo saw this scene, he laughed loudly. "The two Immortal Venerates did not cheat me. Shadowless Saber Sovereign, you are indeed here."
There was something else that Can Minghuo did not say: He is indeed severely injured and extremely weak.
Can Minghuo did not bother with speaking any nonsense. He immediately gave the command, and the eight Elders soared into the air, surrounding Xiao Chen, who was above the blood lake.
"Can Minghuo, even a starved camel is larger than a horse. Although this Shadowless Saber Sovereign is injured, you will not be able to suppress him by just relying on your group of Elders. You will have to make a move yourself," Immortal Venerate Ming Yue said.
Immortal Venerate Ming Yue followed from behind and saw that the coffin was still there, so he could not help feeling anxious.
Can Minghuo smiled coldly to himself. Of course, he knew that a starved camel was larger than a horse.
The final attack before one's death could not be underestimated. The more this was so, the more cautious he should be. He could not take this risk. All he had to do was to take advantage of the situation at the end.
Immortal Venerate Tian Yi's Yuanying was in the ancient lamp. As he looked at the Taiji Yinyang Flame Diagram in the air, he entered deep thought.
No wonder he was not blasted to death. It turns out that this fellow still has such a method to delay all the Void Hell Flowers.
When the Shadowless Saber Sovereign is about to die, he will surely make all the Void Hell Flowers fall, dying together with this group of people. I have to think of a way to get Can Minghuo to go over. It would be best if both sides ended up taking severe losses.
Above the blood lake, Xiao Chen, who was on the throne, was clearly no match for his current situation.
He could only keep dodging and fleeing in a sorry state. Furthermore, he slowed down as time passed. It looked like he would not be able to last much longer, but Immortal Venerate Tian Yi had not thought of a good plan yet.
Immortal Venerate Tian Yi could not help feeling anxious. Giving the other party's character, the other party would definitely take away the coffin in the end.
Seeing that victory was at hand, Can Minghuo looked over at Immortal Venerate Tian Yi and asked with a smile, "Old Man Tian Yi, what were you and the Shadowless Saber Sovereign fighting over that you ended up in such a miserable state?"
Immortal Venerate Tian Yi cursed in his heart. I just knew that you would definitely break the bridge after crossing it. However, this is good. I can use this opportunity to lure you over.
Immortal Venerate Tian Yi purposely remained silent, not saying a word.
"Hehe! Old Man Tian Yi, even if you do not say it, I can guess what it is. The coffin above the blood lake should be the Heavenly Profound Holy Lady's coffin, am I right?"
Can Minghuo's eyes were very sharp. He had long discovered the coffin. After testing out Immortal Venerate Tian Yi, he figured out what Immortal Venerate Tian Yi was after.
"No way. That coffin belongs to my Penglai Sea. Can Minghuo, you can forget about taking that away!" Immortal Venerate Tian Yi ranted, the ancient lamp shaking continuously in his rage.
Can Minghuo laughed loudly and said, "Don't worry. I won't snatch it away from you. I'll just take a look before leaving it."
Although Can Minghuo said that he wanted to take a look, he still showed no intention of entering the blood lake, so Immortal Venerate Tian Yi could not help feeling anxious.
"Is that so? In that case, let me send you on your way!"
Just at this moment, a voice suddenly rang out behind the group.
Can Minghuo's expression changed drastically as he whirled around to defend. His aura instantly rose to its peak.
Xiao Chen merged the seven sabers into one and ignited the ten spots of Saber Energy.
The resplendent saber light looked extremely piercing in the dark passageway. Although Can Minghuo reacted very quickly, he was helpless before this overwhelming force that directly sent him flying.
Can Minghuo vomited a mouthful of blood and landed on the blood lake. His complexion turned slightly pale, and his scarlet clothes flared with a bright light, looking incredibly strange.
"Shadowless Saber Sovereign, so this is your true body."
Can Minghuo wiped away the blood at a corner of his lips. However, he did not seem surprised. He smiled coldly and said, "Do you think that I was not prepared for you? Had you not shown yourself, it would have been fine. Since you already showed yourself, you can forget about leaving."
Xiao Chen could not be bothered with Can Minghuo. With a thought, the Taiji Yinyang Flame Diagram above the blood lake instantly collapsed. The ten thousand flower petals fell.
Before Can Minghuo could understand what was happening, the Extreme Yang True Flame exploded. A fiery light surged up, blanketing the entire blood lake.
The instant the flames exploded, Xiao Chen grabbed hold of the ancient lamp, which Immortal Venerate Tian Yi was in, and retreated quickly.
The shock wave from the explosion surged out. Everywhere it passed, the stone pillars instantly crumbled, disintegrating into nothing.
The ninth floor of the Immortal Palace's underground caved in. The eighth floor, then the seventh followed. All the floors above were affected.
If not for the protection of the restrictions, the intense explosion would have been enough to destroy the entire Immortal palace.
Xiao Chen knew that his Taiji Yinyang Flame Diagram had already absorbed half the energy of the Void Hell Flowers and the Extreme Yang True Flames. The might of the explosion would not be enough to kill Can Minghuo.
A few of that group of Elders from the Blood Clad Sect might live. Right now, Xiao Chen was not in a good enough condition to seek trouble with these people.
"Shadowless Saber Sovereign, quickly let go of me. Otherwise, this old man will detonate his Yuanying and perish with you."
The ancient lamp, which Xiao Chen grabbed hold of, shook continuously, trying to struggle free.
Xiao Chen already knew that this Immortal Venerate Tian Yi appeared fierce but was cowardly at heart. Although he presented a strong front, he was secretly afraid of death.
Xiao Chen simply ignored Immortal Venerate Tian Yi, no matter how the Immortal Venerate cried out, never letting go.
After grabbing hold of the Yuanying of an Immortal Venerate, Xiao Chen could conduct a soul search, dig out Immortal Venerate Tian Yi's secrets, and figure out all the secrets of the Penglai Sea.
Xiao Chen's only regret was that he could not make use of the opportunity to nab the Blood Clad Sect's Vice Sect Master as well.
