The collision of brute force produced firebolts and sparks. The moment Gao Yang’s fist collided with Jiang Chen’s, his facial expression changed completely. The result was far beyond his imagination. The strength of this half-step Heaven Immortal was somewhat unacceptable to him.
He only felt a thunderous force that was sharp and vast coming towards him. A force he couldn’t resist. Despite the fact that he had exerted almost all of his strength, there was still an obvious gap between his and Jiang Chen’s.
A bone-cracking sound was heard and Gao Yang was sent staggering backwards. Immediately, his two comrades helped him stabilize his body. One of his arm was dangling. His forehead was beaded with sweat. He could clearly feel that his other arm was dislocated. It was a serious injury. He could also feel an acute pain in his palm, making him numb.
Gao Yang couldn’t believe the result. It was unacceptable that his physique that he was most proud of was so vulnerable in front of Jiang Chen.
“Senior Brother Gao, this guys is too abnormal. We’re no match for him.”
The disciple who hadn’t attacked yet changed his facial expression entirely. His face had lost all the arrogance that he had before. Qu Yuan had told them to come and teach Jiang Chen a lesson, but Jiang Chen’s scariness had far exceeded their expectations. The shock was unimaginable when one found out that there was such a powerful half-step Heaven Immortal expert. Only those who experienced it knew how scary that was.
“Jiang Chen, we won’t forget today’s matter. Let’s go.”
After knowing that he wasn’t an opponent of Jiang Chen, he turned and left after leaving a cruel remark. If they continued to get entangled with Jiang Chen, they would only be the one to suffer defeat and loss. Although they hadn’t gotten the chance to teach Jiang Chen a lesson today, they had at least found out his true strength and their injuries were only minor.
However, it was too late for them to go, Jiang Chen would certainly not allow that. Just as they turned around, Jiang Chen’s silhouette appeared in front of them, blocking their way.
“Are you thinking of leaving just like that?”
Jiang Chen crossed his arms and spoke indifferently. Apparently, these three had come looking for trouble. He would lose his face and prestige if these people left intact. Tianji Zi might even think that he was a timid guy when this news reached him.
“Jiang Chen, what do you think you’re doing? Don’t go too far,” said Gao Yang with a frown.
“Haha! This is ridiculous. You all came here to cause me trouble even before daybreak, but now you are saying that I’m going too far. In that case, I’ll have to show you my true color. I have already warned you all that you shouldn’t mess with me because you can’t afford to.”
Jiang Chen laughed. He turned his palm, and a long sword appeared in his hand and dropped it. The sword clanged in the ground. Then, he spoke coldly, “Each of you has to cut one of your arms as punishment for provoking me. After that, I will let you all go.”
Hearing this, the three of them exclaimed together. Demanding each of them to cut off an arm? That must be a joke. Even though it was normal for inner sect disciples to have fights against each other, generally, there wouldn’t be any major casualties and incapacitation. The bottom line was that they should never kill or maim their fellow disciples, however, Jiang Chen wanted one of their arms because of a conflict. This was no doubt overly cruel.
“This is the last chance that I’m giving all of you. If you all don’t act now, I will personally cut off both of your arms, turning you all into cripples.”
Jiang Chen’s expression remained unchanged. His cold eyes were emotionless. All of a sudden, fear started to build up inside of them. They could feel that Jiang Chen wasn’t joking around. That pair of eyes certainly wasn’t a pair of joking eyes. That was a pair of cold-blooded eyes that had experienced countless of killings. Inside those very eyes, every living thing was just superficial and it was common to slaughter them right away.
Moreover, at this time, the three of them finally realized another side of Jiang Chen. Even if Jiang Chen cut off both of their arms and legs, he would still be fine as he was a true disciple of Tianji Zi. Even the Law Enforcement Palace would have to show respect to Tianji Zi.
“Jiang Chen, don’t cross the line. We are followers of Senior Brother Qu Yuan. He’s a half-step Divine Immortal expert in the inner sect, and a supreme genius and a true disciple of a Golden Immortal elder. If you hurt us, you won’t be able to bear the consequences,” said Gao Yang while gritting his teeth.
At this moment, there was no other way besides using Qu Yuan as their s.h.i.+eld because he was no longer an opponent of Jiang Chen. As for this unsettled score, he would naturally have a chance to settle them in days to come.
“It seems like you still can’t see the situation clearly, truly an ungrateful one.”
Light flashed from Jiang Chen’s hands, and another sword emerged. It was the sharp Heavenly Saint Sword that looked like a blood-red dragon. The sword was swung at such unavoidably close distance, it was impossible for Gao Yang to dodge it.
If it was before, Jiang Chen would need his dragon form to deal with a late Heaven Immortal expert, but after advancing to the half-step Heaven Immortal realm and igniting his potential, his current power was more than enough to deal with any ordinary late Heaven Immortal expert.
A blood-red light shone. Gao Yang’s arm was cut off by Jiang Chen’s sword. Blood gushed out from Gao Yang’s severed arm, like a beautiful fountain.
“Argh! Jiang Chen, how dare you…”
Gao Yang didn’t think that Jiang Chen would really strike right after speaking. He wanted to exclaim immediately, but before he could finish his sentence, Jiang Chen made another slash, cutting another arm of his.
“Ah……my arm, my arm……”
Gao Yang finally let out a shrill cry that made others’ hair stand on end. Losing two arms at the same time dealt an unbearably huge blow to him physically and psychologically. Although he was a late Heaven Immortal expert, he had basically become a cripple after losing both of his arms. This would restrict his future achievements, making it extremely difficult for him to advance. This situation really made him desperate.
“I’ve given you a chance, but you don’t know how to appreciate it. This is just a small punishment. You should be glad that you’re still here and can still scream like a crying wolf.”
This had always been Jiang Chen’s means. In the eyes of his enemies, he would always be the most ferocious and devilish being.
