IMDC: Chapter 2061

 Chapter 2061 (Raw 2156): Full of Surprises
 Chu Xiang’s laughter sounded very pleasant, like wind chimes. Xiao Chen revealed a smile on his face.
 It had been very long since Xiao Chen heard such clear, hearty laughter.
 The Holy Daughter was like a fairy of heaven, having an indistinct presence despite standing in front of one. It felt like a layer of haze veiled her, someone above the common populace.
 On the other hand, Chu Xiang was like a living fairy that could truly be felt, showing her presence and beauty.
 Noticing Xiao Chen paying attention to her, Chu Xiang immediately came to her senses. She had lost self-control.
 However, Chu Xiang could not cover up the smile on her face. She said softly, “Young Master Xiao, thank you for helping me resolve the situation. However, you offended the Hound Lion Crown Prince. Young Master Xiao, you need to be more careful in the future.”
 Xiao Chen retorted lightly, “You don’t fear him, all the more I won’t fear him. However, his wine is indeed pretty good. It is a pity that Miss Chu did not get to drink any of it.”
 “I don’t want his things.” Chu Xiang’s lips twitched as she added, “Over the past few years, many people have paid a lot of attention to me for the sake of getting close to the Holy Daughter, wanting to use me to approach her. If not for the Heavenly Fragrance’s rules, I would have slapped those people with impure motives long ago.”
 Soft and meek on the outside, extremely overbearing on the inside. Xiao Chen smiled in his heart. This Miss Chu is also a sentimental person.
 “We have arrived. Young Master Xiao can stay here tonight,” Chu Xiang said softly as she pointed to a villa in front.
 This villa looked ordinary. However, after one entered, one discovered a paradise within it.
 There were streams and false mountains. The winding corridors looked serene, clean, and elegant. There was even an area for cultivators to practice.
 Xiao Chen felt very satisfied. He nodded and said, “This place is pretty good.”
 Chu Xiang said softly, “This is a place arranged for cultivators. I have made arrangements for another location for Young Master Xiao’s friend.
 Xiao Chen nodded. Iron Egg did not have any expectations for where he stayed. Being able to stay in this residence already surpassed his imagination. He would not feel dissatisfied in any way.
 “In that case, I’ll go first.” Chu Xiang smiled and took her leave with a bow.
 Xiao Chen entered the cultivation room of the villa. Then, he sat down cross-legged and quickly worked on refining the one-thousand-year-old Spirit Flower Wine.
 That person truly lived up to being the Hound Lion Crown Prince. Although this one-thousand-year-old Spirit Flower Wine was quite inferior to Heart Burn and could not strengthen one’s bloodline, the aid it provided to cultivation was excellent.
 Right now, Xiao Chen could break through to Sovereign Personage at any moment. He did not want to miss out on this opportunity.
 If he managed to succeed in his breakthrough, he would have to properly thank Xiahou Wu, the Hound Lion Crown Prince.
 ---
 At this time, Xiahou Wu, who just left the Heavenly Palace’s residence, had a sullen expression. An extremely strong murderous intent appeared in his eyes.
 Great Master Yuanfei, who was at the side, consoled him, saying, “Your Highness Crown Prince, there is no need to worry. I have already sent someone to investigate him. By nightfall, we will know who exactly he is.”
 Xiahou Wu calmed himself, but even so, he found it hard to hide the pained look on his face. That one-thousand-year-old Spirit Flower Wine was worth more than one million Primeval Heavenly Pills. Furthermore, it was something that had a market but no supply.
 Even in the Hound Lion Empire’s royal court, the supply of Spirit Flower Wine over one thousand years in age was extremely limited.
 Originally, Xiahou Wu wanted to establish a connection with Chu Xiang. Unexpectedly, this mixed-blood dragon that appeared out of nowhere messed it all up, downing the wine in two or three gulps.
 What was worse was that Xiahou Wu underestimated the other party. The other party actually sent him flying.
 “Great Master makes sense. No matter what, we cannot act impudently in this Heavenly Fragrance’s residence.”
 Great Master Yuanfei heaved a sigh of relief when he heard that. He nodded and said, “It’s good that Your Highness understands. Our trip to Peach Blossom City has the Wine King Contest as the focus. The proper matters are more important.”
 Xiahou Wu smiled and said, “With Great Master Yuanfei around, I don’t have to worry about the Wine King Contest. Go back first. After we find out that fellow’s identity, I will make him pay tenfold—a hundredfold!”
 ---
 The bright moon hung high in the sky. There were no stars for five thousand kilometers around.
 The gentle, water-like moonlight poured down on the Heavenly Fragrance residence, lending it an elegant and peaceful ambiance; the night was beautiful.
 At this moment, Xiao Chen was inside the villa arranged for him.
 Wave after wave of azure energy ripples spread out, appearing like the surface of a lake reflecting the beautiful and flawless moonlight.
 However, the villa under the water was hazy.
 Occasionally, the azure energy ripples reached three kilometers high, but they could not go any higher.
 It was like there was a scary existence under the ripples, trying to break through repeatedly but failing every time.
 Two women hovered in the air above the residence. Seen from a distance, they seemed to be standing on the full moon.
 They looked beautiful and serene and would stand out in a crowd. They looked ethereal and graceful, extraordinary, like people in a painting.
 These two women were the Heavenly Fragrance’s Holy Daughter and Chu Xiang.
 “What terrifying energy ripples! Senior Sister, the Water Cloud Formation you laid seems like it won’t be able to hide his aura for much longer!” Chu Xiang felt shocked and very surprised.
 The Heavenly Fragrance’s Holy Daughter frowned heavily, also finding this scene unfathomable.
 An hour ago, Chu Xiang suddenly sought out the Holy Daughter and informed her that Xiao Chen was apparently breaking through to Sovereign Personage and that the aura in the villa was very scary and startling.
 After the Heavenly Fragrance’s Holy Daughter arrived, she laid the Water Cloud Formation to hide the aura in the villa.
 The Holy Daughter’s Water Cloud Formation had already suffered from ten-odd strikes by now.
 Unlike Chu Xiang, the Holy Daughter could peer through the Water Cloud Formation and see the scene within the villa.
 Dragon roars rang out within the formation, and mysterious phenomena layered over each other.
 Seated upright, Xiao Chen was like a powerful, sheathed treasure saber releasing a faint light. Even so, others could sense a fearsome sharpness.
 There were three Dao disks behind this treasure saber.
 The seemingly unremarkable Xiao Chen actually comprehended three Great Dao. Of which, his Thunder Dao reached an inconceivable level.
 This resulted in the entire villa being drowned in a sea of electricity.
 Heavy snow drifted above the sea of electricity, and the strong wind contained boundless saber intent.
 Dragon roars rang out in the surrounding sea. Ancient and dense Dragon Might spread out in all directions.
 However, a sun and a moon shone together in the world of chaotic and terrifying mysterious phenomena, competing with their light.
 Such mysterious phenomena already surpassed the Heavenly Fragrance’s Holy Daughter’s understanding.
 As far as the Holy Daughter knew, a cultivator would be considered incredible if he showed any one of these mysterious phenomena.
 However, Xiao Chen manifested the Sun and Moon Shining Together, a sea of lightning, snow for five thousand kilometers, a powerful treasure saber, and many other mysterious phenomena at the same time.
 “What kind of existence can suppress and maintain so many mysterious phenomena?!”
 The Heavenly Fragrance’s Holy Daughter showed heavy doubt in her eyes, appearing extremely confused.
 Logically speaking, even someone with a Great Desolate Eon bloodline could not suppress so many mysterious phenomena. One would explode and die.
 Some of the mysterious fog covering the Holy Daughter’s face faded, revealing a pair of unique, gem-like eyes.
 A faint light flickered in both eyes, and a sea of flowers bloomed within them, forming a vast world. This was the Heavenly Fragrance Ten Thousand Flower Eyes.
 Chu Xiang, who was at the side, felt slightly shocked. She did not know why her senior sister executed this Eye Technique.
 Just as Chu Xiang felt confused, ten thousand flowers gathered and disappeared. Then, the Heavenly Fragrance’s Holy Daughter showed a look of understanding. “So, that is the case.”
 An acquired Divine Body!
 No wonder he can suppress and contain so many mysterious phenomena. It turns out that he has acquired a Divine Body.
 This makes sense. Without a Divine Body, who could contain so many mysterious phenomena?
 With such accumulations, the increase in strength when one broke through to Sovereign Personage would be unimaginable.
 “Junior Sister Chu, you said that he drank up Xiahou Wu’s bottle of one-thousand-year-old Spirit Flower Wine in one go, right?” the Heavenly Fragrance’s Holy Daughter asked.
 At the mention of this matter, Chu Xiang could not help laughing, “Yes. When I saw that Xiahou Wu completely stupefied, my jaw nearly dropped off.”
 The Heavenly Fragrance’s Holy Daughter smiled faintly and said, “If he knew that Xiao Chen would break through to Sovereign Personage because of it, I wonder what expression he would show? Just thinking about it is very amusing.”
 Chu Xiang rubbed her chin and asked, “Is Senior Sister saying that Young Master Xiao might really break through to Sovereign Personage?”
 The Heavenly Fragrance’s Holy Daughter shook her head and replied, “It’s hard to say. I can tell that he has tried and failed at least five times already. Each time, there was a possibility of succeeding. However, each time, he lacked an opportunity, wasting his previous effort. Tell me, what kind of person do you think he is?”
 In the end, the Heavenly Fragrance’s Holy Daughter asked an unexpected question. Chu Xiang felt stunned for a while.
 As far as Chu Xiang could remember, her senior sister had never shown such interest in a person before.
 When the Heavenly Fragrance’s Holy Daughter first met Xiao Chen, she merely considered him a dead person. Feeling sorry for his circumstances, she had given him a Medicinal Pill.
 However, that Medicinal Pill could not resolve Thousand Taste Revolution.
 The Holy Daughter already felt very shocked when she saw Xiao Chen standing in front of her alive.
 Even more unexpectedly, Xiao Chen was the person that Qin Zhuolin mentioned.
 After that, there was something even more surprising. Xiao Chen was the one who uprooted the eighty-odd strongholds of the Heavenly Slaughter Sect’s branch around Peach Blossom City.
 Now, Xiao Chen gave the Holy Daughter another surprise: he had acquired a Divine Body.
