“Haha……100,000 low grade Immortal Meta Stones? You have the maw of a lion, brat. I think you are obsessed with those stones for claiming that your lowly carriage of herbs is worth that much. Humph! You surely is an ignorant brat! I really have no idea where you got those guts from, daring to act outrageously in front of the Prefecture. Take him down. I’d like to see whether he still dares to resist.”
Steward Wu burst into laughter, as if he had heard the funniest joke in the world. Had that lowly villager gone out of his mind for wanting 100,000 low grade Immortal Meta Stones? He must have thought that low grade Immortal Meta Stones could easily be picked on the street.
Jiang Chen’s words had completely angered Steward Wu, who immediately ordered to take him down.
The experts led by Steward Wu moved. Their speed was swift and sharp as they besiege Jiang Chen in a matter of seconds.
“You think you can deal with me with these rotten potato and spoiled eggs? Get lost!”
Jiang Chen totally didn’t put these people in his eyes. All of a sudden, his Qi fluctuated; an invisible energy surged out of his body like tidal waves and lunged in all directions indiscriminately.
*Bang…* *Bang…* *Bang…*
“Argh…” “Argh…” “Argh…”
All the experts who rushed forward were pushed flying away by Jiang Chen’s force, landing on the ground 40 meters away and wailed agonizingly. This scene shocked both Steward Wu and Huang Liu. They knew that there were two half-step Earth Immortal experts among them, but none of them were able to get close to Jiang Chen. It was absolutely not an accident, nor incompetence from their experts. The only explanation for this was that Jiang Chen was just too strong.
Steward Wu couldn’t help but begin to carefully examine Jiang Chen. With his eyesight, he was able to discern Jiang Chen’s cultivation just from his attack, but because of that, he was shocked even more.
“It’s unbelievable that a young late Human Immortal expert can defeat a half-step Earth Immortal expert so easily.” Steward Wu said in a low tone.
His face was filled with disbelief. As the steward of the Prefecture, he had great knowledge and experience, however, it was rare for him to encounter such a genius like Jiang Chen.
Nevertheless, that didn’t give him a reason not to punish this young man, this matter involved the dignity of the Prefecture. If the Prefecture of Yan City couldn’t even handle a puny late Human Immortal, he would certainly be fired by his superior for being so incompetent.
Jiang Chen stood there with his hands behind his back. His face was indifferent, totally not showing any interest of conversing with Steward Wu. Today, there was only one great thing that he wanted to do, which was to seek justice for Han Village and bring them more benefits. This would also help him lay a foundation in this new world.
Therefore, someone who was powerful and had high position in the Prefecture must come out and face him. As for this Steward Wu, he obviously wasn’t the powerful superior he expected.
“Cousin, this brat doesn’t seem like a weak opponent. Should we inform Big Miss?” Huang Liu whispered.
“Humph! Informing Big Miss just because of this puny late Human Immortal young man? Where should I put my face after that?”
Steward Hu let out a cold humph. Although Jiang Chen had a very mystical performance, he wasn’t a true Earth Immortal expert like him. He had great confidence in eliminating this young man.
“You don’t have to attack because you are no match for me at all.”
Jiang Chen pointed to Steward Wu and shook his head. Even if Steward Wu was a mid Earth Immortal expert, he was still not an opponent for Jiang Chen.
“What an overly arrogant brat! Since you want to die so badly, I will fulfil your wish now. After you, all these Han villagers will have to die as well.”
Steward Wu raged. With his ident.i.ty and reputation, no one had ever talked to him like that, especially an outsider.
A powerful wave suddenly rushed out of Steward Wu’s body. With a swift speed, he appeared before Jiang Chen in a blink, locking on Jiang Chen with his divine sense, wrapping him with the wind. Then, he struck out a few palm strikes, creating a dozen of clear palm seals that charged at Jiang Chen. This was an attack of a true Earth Immortal expert which shouldn’t be underestimated.
The villagers tensed, knowing that Han Village was tied together with Jiang Chen’s fate. If Jiang Chen died, their village wouldn’t be any better. So, they hoped that Jiang Chen was powerful enough to defeat Steward Wu even if his chances was very low. It was because Steward Wu was a true Earth Immortal expert and was incomparable to a half-step Earth Immortal like Hang Changling.
Jiang Chen’s move was very simple while facing those dense palm attacks. He just gently raised his palm and smashed forward, producing a cracking sound. Then, all the palm seals of Steward Wu shattered before making an impact on Jiang Chen.
Jiang Chen’s speed was too fast. After pulverizing all the palm seals, he made a swift slap on Steward Wu’s face, creating a clear slapping sound. But what felt wasn’t just a slap, it was like a force of a mountain was pressing against his face, causing him to suffocate. Under such an overwhelming force, he had lost the power to resist.
Steward Wu let out a wail like the other guards, and was kicked flying by Jiang Chen. Although he was an early Earth Immortal expert, he still faced the same outcome like those Human Immortal guards. In order words, early Human Immortal and early Earth Immortals didn’t matter to Jiang Chen at all.
This time, all the villagers were absolutely shocked. Each and every one of them widened their eyes, watching the scene in disbelief. They hadn’t even dreamt of such a scene. It seemed like Jiang Chen’s power was way beyond their estimation.
“That’s amazing! He’s an ascendant who has just arrived in the Immortal World. How could he possess such a terrifying combat strength?”
“Brother Jiang is domineering. We can’t let this drag on, it won’t be in our favor as the time goes by.”
“I can sense the aura of confidence all over his body. Perhaps he still has some kind of trump card that he hasn’t shown us. I don’t believe that he demanded those 100,000 low grade Immortal Meta Stones just because he wanted to get those stones. Do any of you realize that Brother Jiang is doing all of these to draw the powerful superior out of the Prefecture?”
“That’s right. I don’t think he is a madman, since a brainless man wouldn’t have ascended to our world. He must have his own reason for doing this. We’ll see how it goes, our fate is already tied with his anyway. It’s no use worrying so much.”
All the villagers were in shock, but they weren’t fools. Jiang Chen’s astonis.h.i.+ng power had given them a certain level of confidence.
Now, the air of the Prefecture was filled with wails. On the floor laid the injured guards. It was the first time that something like this had ever happened in Yan City. No one would ever dare to be wild at the Prefecture. If this incident was spread out to the public, it would certainly set an uproar throughout the city.
Huang Liu was still standing there, but his expression had already changed. All of his anger and arrogance were gone, his eyes were now filled with fear.
“Jiang Chen, you-you-you just wait here…”
Huang Liu said and ran back into the Prefecture.
After a while, another group of people walked out of the Prefecture. This time, there were up to 30 of them. Each one of them was outrageously strong. The Qi emitted from them was enough to show that some of them held a prestigious position in the Prefecture. There were a few elders who looked like guests but had a late Earth Immortal cultivation base. Experts with this level of cultivation base was probably among the top throughout this entire city.
Looking at the scene, anyone could tell how deep Jiang Chen had gotten this matter to. He had drawn out the higher ups of the Prefecture.
This time, the leader was not a late Earth Immortal elder, but rather a young woman who looked to be in her twenties, dressed in a long light blue dress, with a straight waist-length dark hair and some strands of hair touched her delicate face due to the breeze, natural-red lips and a pair of gem-like glittering eyes.
Every gesture she made emitted the aura of n.o.bility. Apart from her beautiful appearance, she also had pride displayed on her expression. Even Jiang Chen had to admit that this was a truly beautiful girl. Her beauty was almost on par with Wu Ningzhu and Yan Chenyu.
What surprised him more was her cultivation base. She had already reached the scary late Earth Immortal realm at such a young age. It seemed like the Prefecture still had talented cultivators in the city.
Han Cong’s eyes were staring at the girl, and almost lost his mind.
“Don’t stare at her. She’s the Big Miss of the Prefecture, Yan Qingcheng. No one is allowed to blaspheme her, the way you look at her is already considered a blasphemy to her.”
Han Changling immediately pinched Han Cong hard. The first beauty of Yan City was someone they seriously didn’t want to offend.
Brother Jiang, she’s Yan Qingcheng, the only daughter of the City Lord. She has a uniquely high position in the Prefecture. I didn’t expect us to draw her out. It seems like things are getting more and more difficult.
Han Changling spoke to Jiang Chen via divine sense.
“Big Miss, that’s him.” Huang Liu pointed at Jiang Chen.
When Yan Qingcheng and the other elders saw the scene outside, their gaze immediately s.h.i.+fted to Jiang Chen, their eyes displayed an angry glare and had the impulse to rush forward and shred him into pieces. To them, it was outrageous. No one had ever dared to create trouble in front of the Prefecture, let alone beat up their people. They couldn’t imagine how much audacity this young man had.
Only Yan Qingcheng was looking at Jiang Chen with her very composed pair of gem-like eyes, studying him from top to bottom, as if trying to peal the facade of this bold young man.
