Everyone’s expression darkened. Each of their eyes changed as they looked at Liang Qiao. The only explanation for this situation was someone had betrayed them and deliberately exposed their location. Otherwise, how could there be such a coincidence that these people were waiting here for them?
What was more puzzling was that Corpse Yin Sect, Yellow Spring Sect and Divine Line Sect had clearly been together from the very beginning, made adequate preparations in advance and knew that Jiang Chen would come to Golden Horizon. Without the advanced preparations, it would be impossible for them to work together so well after just arriving in the Golden Horizon.
Of course, this wasn’t the only thing that raised their doubts. Everyone knew that the eleven major powers in Eastern Profound Domain hadn’t gotten along well. Normally, fights and conflicts would often break out amongst them. Each of them had their own motive and wouldn’t work so well together. There was no doubt about it.
Their faces were so unpleasant because the encampment of the enemy was just too powerful. There were three early Immortal Emperors, each one of them was on par with King Fan. Given King Fan’s ability, he could only handle one at best. He wouldn’t be a match if he fought two. Earlier, the reason Jiang Chen was able to get rid of the blood demon kings was because of his supreme flames, but these flames couldn’t be used on w.a.n.g Duo and the rest.
Nevertheless, Jiang Chen and Yang Bufan still seemed indifferent, because they knew that these people were no longer a threat to them. If these people had laid siege on them the moment they entered the Golden Horizon, they would probably have some fears, but now, they felt totally different.
“Jiang Chen, how dare you kill a genius of Divine Line Sect? I really have no idea where you have gotten such audacity. You have been hiding in Genius Prefecture, relying on the protection of Great Qian Empire, so I couldn’t do anything to you, but today, you have nothing to rely on. Not just you, even King Fan will have to die because of you. Jiang Chen, if you kneel and kowtow before us now, we may consider granting you a more pleasant death.”
w.a.n.g Dao of Divine Line Sect said sneeringly, totally not putting Jiang Chen in his eyes. In his point of view, Jiang Chen was merely a powerful Immortal King. Apart from Yang Bufan, no one else worried him. In fact, Yang Bufan wasn’t a problem for him too because the three of them were more than enough to deal with Yang Bufan.
“A lot of people have spoken such childish remarks in front of me. Unfortunately, they have all ended very tragically. Hei Kui, w.a.n.g Duo, Ling Du, the three of you have been used by someone against me. You have really made a foolish decision. I’m afraid that you all won’t even have the chance to regret it.”
Jiang Chen looked at the trio and spoke plainly. He would never be lenient to anyone who wanted to kill him. Anyone who wanted him dead, would have to die in front of him for sure. It didn’t matter to him that the three major powers were involved as he had already killed people from these major powers before.
Also, Jiang Chen wasn’t a fool. Due to some people in Great Qian Empire couldn’t make the move in person, they found some geniuses from the three major powers to help them do the job. Given Jiang Chen’s intelligence and wisdom, he could see this fact pretty well.
Just like that w.a.n.g Ye and the others had said, someone had purposely exposed their whereabouts. This someone was among them, but Jiang Chen had no time to care about that. He wanted to let them see how serious these people’s mistake was.
“Humph! What an arrogant brat! In that case, you’ll die for sure, and very miserably. After killing you, I may be able to acquire your luck. A genius like you must have a very strong luck.”
w.a.n.g Duo snorted coldly. He had never thought that Jiang Chen would be so proud. He initially felt that Jiang Chen would be scared to death after seeing their group, kneeling and begging for his life. Unexpectedly, Jiang Chen didn’t put them in his eyes at all. This made w.a.n.g Duo and his comrades lose all their faces.
Of course, they didn’t intend to let Jiang Chen go. Even if Jiang Chen fell to his knees now, he would still face the same outcome. He wouldn’t have a chance to survive. Besides, they were intrigued by the luck of Jiang Chen. They had heard about Jiang Chen a long time ago. This genius could kill a figure like Fu Wei when he was only a half-step Immortal King. This was enough to show how talented he was. He was incomparable to ordinary geniuses, and a genius of such kind was extremely lucky.
If it was outside, even if they killed Jiang Chen, it wouldn’t be possible for them to acquire Jiang Chen’s luck, but currently, they were in the Golden Horizon. The law in this place was controlled by the Immortal Court and Jiang Chen had the ident.i.ty brocade pouch. As long as Jiang Chen was killed, they would obtain Jiang Chen’s ident.i.ty brocade pouch. By then, not only could they absorb the luck of Jiang Chen, but also the treasures that Jiang Chen had obtained in this place. It was like killing two birds with one stone.
Of course, the three of them didn’t have much hope about the treasure. After all, Jiang Chen has just arrived in the Golden Horizon, and he didn’t seem to have gotten any great treasures yet.
They had no idea that Jiang Chen was also thinking the same thing as them. Jiang Chen would also acquire their luck by killing them.
“If I were you, I wouldn’t just stand there and waste time speaking nonsense,” Jiang Chen spoke sneeringly.
“It seems that someone can’t wait to die.”
The genius of Yellow Spring, Ling Du, cackled. He suddenly felt that Jiang Chen’s arrogance was futile. In his opinion, Jiang Chen was just a p.r.i.c.k that relied on Yang Bufan.
“King Fan, Jiang Chen, what are we going to do now? They have such a huge and powerful group. I’m afraid that we are no match for them,” w.a.n.g Ye asked concernedly.
This encampment was just too strong, a lot stronger than the blood demons, also these people had come to kill. How could they be a match for them?
“Don’t worry. You all just have to stand aside and watch the show.”
Jiang Chen revealed a smirk at the corner of his mouth. w.a.n.g Ye, Dong Fei and the rest had no idea where Jiang Chen got that confidence from. It seemed as if Jiang Chen could remain calm and composed no matter how difficult the situation was. Whether it was because of Jiang Chen’s pride or not, Jiang Chen’s confidence had eased their worry.
“Don’t waste time with them anymore. Get rid of them quickly. Kill Jiang Chen first. It will be good to kill Yang Bufan as well.”
Hei Kui spoke maliciously. Corpse Qi began to gather around his body, turning gloomily cold. The people of Corpse Yin Sect were the most spiteful ones, a hundred times more ruthless than the people of Devil Cult. In Eastern Profound Domain, people were unwilling to offend Corpse Yin Sect. Even the other major powers were reluctant to clash against their people, because they would likely to die in the encounter.
“Alright. Everyone listen up. Let’s attack together. Kill them all and leave no one alive!” w.a.n.g Duo shouted, giving the order to kill.
All of a sudden, a strong Qi rushed out of their bodies – the bodies of the three early Immortal Emperors and nine half-step Immortal Emperors. This was undeniably a spectacular scene. Twelve experts rushed towards Jiang Chen’s side at the same time. Each of them was packed with murderous intent and the intent to eradicate them all.
This was the Golden Horizon, an ancient battlefield and a true place of ma.s.sacre. Many people had died here from time to time. Although thousands of geniuses had come, it was already considered not bad if half of them could leave here alive. That was why this place had no rules in fighting. There was only life or death.
“King Fan, you take w.a.n.g Duo.” Jiang Chen spoke.
“Right, I would also like to see how powerful a genius of Divine Line Sect is and what made him so arrogant.”
Yang Bufan’s Qi fluctuated. His combat intent rose to the sky. Turning into a ray of saint light with boundless Qi waves, he then charged at w.a.n.g Duo. As the Evil Lord and a person obsessed with battles, there was nothing more interesting to him than battling in the Golden Horizon.
Although King Fan had the most powerful cultivation base, and was the master of King Fan Prefecture, Jiang Chen was always in the lead since they arrived in the Golden Horizon. Even King Fan would follow Jiang Chen’s suggestions and orders unconditionally.
In an instant, w.a.n.g Duo and Yang Bufan started an intense battle. The battle between the top geniuses of the two major powers was destined to be magnificent and earth-shattering. Both of them sent out their powerful attacks. If this was a one-versus-one battle, it would be impossible to determine the victor within a short period of time.
“You all just have to stand here and don’t move,” Jiang Chen said to his comrades.
“Jiang Chen, receive your death!”
On the other side, Ling Du and Hei Kui charged at Jiang Chen at the same time. They were rus.h.i.+ng with all their might, fearing that they would be the slower one. They knew that anyone who killed Jiang Chen first would acquire Jiang Chen’s ident.i.ty brocade pouch. To them, Jiang Chen’s luck was a treasure, an enormous treasure that they couldn’t miss.
The two early Immortal Emperors launched their strikes at Jiang Chen simultaneously. They had already locked on Jiang Chen’s position. w.a.n.g Ye and the others seemed worse now, but Jiang Chen just wanted them to stand aside and watch the show. They certainly didn’t have a clue where Jiang Chen got that confidence from, and what trump cards he had to fight against these two great early Immortal Emperor geniuses.
“Lao Da! Lao Er!”
Just at this moment, Jiang Chen shouted. Two blood-red light flickered beside him before the two blood demon kings materialized.
The two blood demon kings bowed to Jiang Chen, and addressed him as their ‘Master’ respectfully.
