Unfortunately, it definitely wasn’t an easy task to find Jiang Chen. He would never expose the Heavenly Dragon Combat Halberd easily. It was more likely that he would only use this weapon when it was the time to fight Tian Muyun.
At this time, a palm suddenly patted Jiang Chen from behind. He turned and saw a man smiling at him. The person was no doubt Fu Hui.
“Brother Jiang, I thought you weren’t coming. Never thought that you are even earlier than me and you have already advanced your cultivation. I have to say that your talent is truly scary.”
Fu Hui couldn’t help but praise. He couldn’t believe his own eyes. Back when he first met Jiang Chen, he was just an early Earth Immortal expert. After ten days’ time, this early Earth Immortal junior had already advance to the mid Earth Immortal realm. There was no way that he wouldn’t be shocked by such rapid progress.
“It was just luck.” Jiang Chen shrugged.
“Brother Jiang, I heard that someone has stolen the Regenerative Lotus. That man must have extreme guts for doing so.”
Obviously, Fu Hui already knew everything that happened. It was truly an unbelievable thing to him that someone had actually stolen the Regenerative Lotus the night before the grand ceremony.
“That’s right. He sure has a lot of guts. Who does brother Fu think was the one who did this?” Asked Jiang Chen with a smile.
“How could I make a guess about it? Besides, it has nothing to do with me. It is a matter of those experts. I think we shouldn’t get involved in this kind of stuff. But without the Regenerative Lotus, I wonder how the grand ceremony will become.”
Fu Hui sounded disappointed. The Regenerative Lotus was supposed to be the grand prize for the grand ceremony and the match among the Eight Immortals was surely going to be intense and exciting. However, without the Regenerative Lotus, it was already conceivable how dull the ceremony would become.
“I have the same thought. So I don’t think there’s anything interesting in this grand ceremony anymore and was thinking of returning.”
Said Jiang Chen. In his point of view, the Eight Immortals had already lost their interest in the battle after the Regenerative Lotus was stolen, especially Tian Muyun. A man like him had a very ambitious desire. It was almost certain that he wouldn’t show all of his strength in the battle tomorrow, which would make the match meaningless to watch.
“So quickly? We have just arrived here and this ceremony is only held once every two years. It will be a waste if we miss it.”
Fu Hui said, then he s.h.i.+fted his attention to Ah Da, and Ah Er who was next to Ah Yan and Big Yellow. He could tell that both of them were twins just by from their looks. But he could also sense a vague demonic Qi from these two individuals, which proved that they were demonic beasts.
“Brother Jiang, these two are?”
Fu Hui asked curiously. He didn’t know when Jiang Chen mixed himself together with the demonic beasts. Although these two beasts hadn’t revealed their Qi yet, they didn’t seem like any friendly beings and might have a cultivation base higher than him.
“They are the friends I have made in the wilderness and since then, they have followed me. However, they have come here just to watch the grand ceremony and will return to their home tomorrow.”
Said Jiang Chen. Ah Da and Ah Er were his weapon that he couldn’t reveal. He needed to hide them inside his Ancestral Dragon PaG.o.da later.
Fu Hui had given Jiang Chen the thumbs up. Demonic beasts are normally very ferocious in nature, especially those great demons in the desolate mountain range. Any ordinary expert who entered the wilderness would try their best to stay away from such great demon. As such, it made him wonder very much how Jiang Chen could befriend such ferocious demons.
“Brother Fu, I’m not interested in the grand ceremony anymore. We’ll being going now. I’ll be waiting for you in Cloudmist City, to recommend me to Skycloud Pavilion.”
Said Jiang Chen. He could already predict the outcome of the match tomorrow, which made it unappealing to him anymore. Of course, the most important thing right now was to restore his peak form. The injuries on his body was a small matter, but the Ancestral Dragon PaG.o.da needed to recover its previous state. Now that they had already obtained the Regenerative Lotus, they needed to use it as soon as possible because it was just like a time bomb. It was safest to refine it in Cloudmist City as no one from the outside would be able to notice it.
“Does brother Jiang really needed to go?” Asked Fu Hui.
“That’s right. I have already seen the faces of the Eight Immortals and I’m already satisfied with it. My brothers have obtained some benefits in the wilderness and needed some time to digest them. Brother Fu, we will take our leave now.”
Jiang Chen held his fists at Fu Hui and vanished along with Han Yan and Big Yellow in the crowd, heading towards Cloudmist City.
It would be wise for them to leave at this time, while everyone’s attention were still on One-Line Eight Immortals. If they waited until the ceremony was over, he was afraid that they would encounter the people of Profound Sun Sect which made conflicts inevitable. The last thing he wanted right now was to confront the people of Profound Sun Sect.
After they left, Jiang Chen ordered Ah Da and Ah Er to hide in the Ancestral Dragon PaG.o.da. Then, the three brothers ran frantically on the ground. It was very low-key to travel in such a way, but with the Regenerative Lotus in their possession, they needed to keep their profile as low as possible.
Although a portion of the paG.o.da was broken, the huge s.p.a.ce inside was more than enough to store Ah Da and Ah Er.
“Little Chen, why are we leaving so early? We haven’t seen the grand ceremony yet.” Asked Han Yan.
“There’s nothing left to watch. The outcome of the match would surely be a draw again. Do you think that the Eight Immortals would display their real strength without the Regenerative Lotus’ as reward? What we needed to do right now is to return and refine the lotus at once. We must complete this task before entering the Skycloud Pavilion.”
Said Jiang Chen. Only idiots would run into Skycloud Pavilion and refine the Regenerative Lotus there, there were numerous high-level experts there, including Tian Muyun. Once any of those experts sensed a trace of the Qi of the lotus, they would surely be in serious trouble.
Two men and a dog moved incredibly fast. At random times, Big Yellow would summon his wings and brought the two into the air. Unknowingly, day was approaching.
There wasn’t a long distance from One-Line Mountain to the Cloudmist City. After daybreak, they would travel on land once more. There were continuous number of cultivators zipping past above their heads, heading towards One-Line Mountain. It only showed that the grand ceremony that was held once every two years did play an important role in their lives.
As four streams of light pa.s.sed by, they reversed their directions and flew backwards. Their Qi’s were incomparably powerful. They were all Heaven Immortal experts and they had already locked on Jiang Chen and his friends instantly.
“We are being noticed.”
Big Yellow lifted his head and saw the four experts landing before them.
“Brother Li, it’s him. He’s Jiang Chen, the b.a.s.t.a.r.d that destroyed one of our ore mines and killed dozen of our disciples.”
A man pointed to Jiang Chen and spoke while gnas.h.i.+ng his teeth, as if wanting to eat Jiang Chen raw. Jiang Chen knew this man. He was the inner disciple of Profound Sun Sect, Luo Xiang. It was him who fought Jiang Chen that night. Jiang Chen didn’t expect to meet him here.
