The eyes of the Heaven Devouring Devil Ape was filled with ridicule. In his point of view, these two were his prey, the food that he was going to devour. However, he didn’t need to rush in finis.h.i.+ng his prey off. He always preferred to watch the despair and fear of humans before their death. That kind of feeling intoxicated him.
“Humph! Heaven Devouring Devil Ape, I fear that your teeth aren’t strong enough to eat us.”
Jiang Chen harrumphed coldly. His divine sense already scanned every corner of the spatial zone trying to find the safest way to get out of there, but what he found in the end was only disappointment. No matter how the scene changed, it was either the black palace or the black mountains, they were all created by illusions. He simply couldn’t find a way out. Although he knew that the Heaven Devouring Devil Ape also couldn’t get out of here, this place was under the full control of the beast. The moment he and Big Yellow stepped into the tunnel, it was already equivalent to them stepping into a blind alley, giving them no chance of turning back.
“Fear that my teeth aren’t strong enough? Haha! This is the funniest joke I’ve ever heard. I, Heaven Devouring Devil Ape, can devour even the Heavens! What in this Heaven and Earth that I can’t devour?”
The devil ape laughed heartily as though he had just heard the funniest joke in the world. The innate ability of the Heaven Devouring Devil Ape was “devouring”. They could devour everything. In their heyday, they could swallow even the Heavens, let alone humans.
“Little Chen, what now?” Big Yellow looked over at Jiang Chen.
“By using the Immortal Execution Sword, do you have the confidence in dealing with this big guy? If I can refine this guy, my cultivation base will definitely progress by leaps and bounds. Numerous levels of the Ancestral Dragon PaG.o.da will also be condensed.” Jiang Chen whispered to Big Yellow.
Upon hearing this, Big Yellow instantly rolled his eyes. “Little Chen, are you joking? The Immortal Execution Sword in Master Dog’s hands is at best equivalent to a peak Emperor Weapon. If my judgement is not wrong, this guy is infinitely close to half-step Sovereign. Isn’t it just seeking death by asking Master Dog to fight a mighty Immortal Venerable with Master Dog’s sword? I don’t think it’s even enough to fill the gap between its teeth.”
Big Yellow was incomparably depressed. He wouldn’t have thought that there was such a horrifying existence hidden in the territory of Great Qian Empire. Not just them, even all the old ancestors and the Emperor wouldn’t be enough to fill the gap of this devil ape’s teeth.
“If that won’t work, I can only rely on the Ancestral Dragon PaG.o.da.”
Jiang Chen shook his head helplessly. With a flash, he reverted back into his original appearance. In the face of the mighty Heaven Devouring Devil Ape, he had no intention of fighting. There wasn’t any difference at all whether he’s in his human or dragon-form. At this time, the only thing he could depend on was the Ancestral Dragon PaG.o.da, but what Jiang Chen was most worried about now was that the paG.o.da might be detected by their opponent. If that’s really the case, the danger would still be very great. He couldn’t predict how powerful a half-step Immortal Sovereign was. There was a possibility that he would lose his paG.o.da.
“I have been eating hearts all these years, getting quite fed up with it. But today, it seems like luck is on my side. I didn’t expect two individuals with divine beast bloodlines to come here. Those things inside your bodies are a lot more precious than those lowly hearts. I will surely devour every piece of your body, leaving no remains behind.”
The devil ape stuck out his tongue and licked his lips. As long as he could eat Jiang Chen and Big Yellow, he would be able to make a breakthrough, becoming a powerful half-step Sovereign. At that time, he would be able to break the spatial zone here with ease. Nothing could stop him anymore.
Half-step Sovereign also meant that half of the expert’s feet has already stepped into the Sovereign realm. It was a realm countless of experts couldn’t cross even in their lifetime. The ability to step into the Sovereign realm wasn’t only determined by one’s talent and strength. It was also decided by fate. Everyone who stepped into the Sovereign realm was a man of great fortune.
“Alright. I don’t want to play with you two anymore. I will now devour you two and advance to the legendary realm.”
The ape was done playing around and couldn’t wait any longer. Abruptly, he opened his big mouth. It was an incomparably huge mouth that looked like a black hole.
Waves of stench escaped from the devil ape’s mouth. It swept everything like a storm. The invisible storm wrapped around Jiang Chen and Big Yellow in an instant.
“This is the innate ability of the Heaven Devouring Devil Ape. It can devour everything under the Heavens and Earth. Quickly use your Ancestral Dragon PaG.o.da or we will be finished,” Big Yellow said.
“Not good, I have underestimated this ape’s strength. This wave of wind has sealed everything here. It can swallow everything in this spatial zone. Even if we hide inside the paG.o.da, we will be devoured and die eventually.”
Jiang Chen’s facial expression changed dramatically. Such a situation wasn’t something he had expected. All along, he had regarded the Ancestral Dragon PaG.o.da as the magical treasure that could help him escape. It had proved effective each time. Moreover, he was able to achieve unexpected results with it every time. Nevertheless, he had never confronted such a powerful opponent. He couldn’t even come out with the right solution to their situation. The Ancestral Dragon PaG.o.da was useless at this moment.
Big Yellow couldn’t help but scold. Powerful storms had already rolled past their bodies. Under such a powerful storm, Jiang Chen and Big Yellow felt like a leaf in the ocean, unable to exert any bit of strength. Even Jiang Chen’s divine sense had been sealed, giving him no way to communicate with the Ancestral Dragon PaG.o.da.
To put it bluntly, this was the biggest crisis that Jiang Chen had encountered in his life. It was a crisis that had never happened before. Even with all his efforts, he wouldn’t be able to resolve this incident.
Both Jiang Chen and Big Yellow had lost control of their bodies. They had already reached the mouth of the ape in a blink.
The devil ape let out a delightful laugh that made the entire s.p.a.ce ripple.
“What the f*u*! Master Dog can’t even move at all. I don’t even have the strength to exert the Immortal Execution Sword.” Big Yellow yelled angrily, but it didn’t help their situation at all.
Jiang Chen had the urge to cough up blood, and felt total despair. Although he was extremely irritated, there was nothing he could do. He was like a meat on a cutting board, waiting for his predator’s judgement.
Could it be that he really had to die this way? Reluctant, Jiang Chen was extremely reluctant to die in such a way. Big Yellow felt the same as well. They still had many things that they needed to accomplish. However, Jiang Chen still has a glimmer of hope that came from the Great Divination Art. Although danger existed in this valley, it wasn’t fatal to him. He believed in the Great Divination Art. Therefore, he felt that there was still hope, he had no idea where this hope laid, however.
Just as Jiang Chen and Big Yellow were about to enter the mouth of the Heaven Devouring Devil Ape, an enormous hand suddenly descended from the sky. It acted like a cage, capturing Jiang Chen and Big Yellow in an instant.
