It would only be a fantasy for him to save the Crown Prince. The Crown Prince and him were absolute enemies. Although both of them were from Great Qian Empire, he hated the Crown Prince to the very core. He had no doubt about this especially after he learned that the Crown Prince wanted to use Yun Zhangxiao to kill him even when Crown Prince was already in the face of death.
He would never be lenient to a man like this, however he could never kill the Crown Prince himself. After all, this was the Golden Horizon. If words about killing their own allies was spread out, it would stir contempt from the people around the world. At that time, he wouldn’t be able to stay in Great Qian Empire anymore.
The present situation was undeniably the best. After Yun Zhangxiao killed the Crown Prince and his comrades, he would eliminate Yun Zhangxiao and his comrades without hesitation, he too wouldn’t be lenient to Yun Zhangxiao. He would never have the slightest kindness to anyone who wanted him dead. The best way to deal with this kind of enemy was to eradicate them.
When that time came, he would proclaim that he was acting on behalf of the Crown Prince. In this way, even if the Crown Prince was killed, it would have nothing to do with him. When the words spread out, his action would become meritorious, and he would be known as a person who understood unity. At that time, people would think that despite being treated so badly by the Crown Prince, he had done whatever it took to avenge the Crown Prince’s murder. Which ordinary person would have such high level of morality?
“You sure are sinister, kid. This is like killing two birds with one stone. This is a high skill. Your intelligence and wisdom are already more than a fifth of Master Monkey’s.”
Dragon s.h.i.+san praised Jiang Chen, but didn’t forget to praise himself either.
Jiang Chen grunted. This b.a.s.t.a.r.d really wouldn’t let go of any chances to praise himself.
“You can’t see such an opportunity every day. It’s their bad luck that I have seen such an opportunity. I haven’t been able to vent my fury after being hunted down by Nanbei Chao for so long. They have shown up just at the right time.” Jiang Chen said coldly.
He was indeed angered. Since his rebirth, he had never been humiliated in such a way. He had been chased by someone who wanted to kill him for several dozen miles. If he didn’t vent out this anger, he would never be pleased to see anyone.
These b.a.s.t.a.r.ds ahead were the right object for Jiang Chen to vent his anger. The death of either side would delight him. It seemed like Dragon s.h.i.+san’s direction was not bad. Although it was still unknown if he could obtain any treasures, he could at least express his fury on them.
“Little Chen, I think that it won’t be easy for you to vent your anger now. I can see an intermediate Immortal Emperor in their group. Given your current strength, you are no match for an intermediate Immortal Emperor genius.” Dragon s.h.i.+san said.
“Have you forgotten about the blood demon kings? I have brought them not for nothing.”
The corners of Jiang Chen’s mouth revealed a hint of cold smile. The blood demon king was powerful enough to deal with Yun Yi. As for the rest, Jiang Chen alone was enough to handle them effortlessly. As for that Yun Yi, he didn’t intend to kill him, because it wasn’t realistic. Even if the blood demon kings were sent to fight him, the most the blood demon kings could do was to suppress him. It was virtually impossible to kill such a genius, and it would also be pretty easy for an intermediate Immortal Emperor genius to escape.
“Master Monkey has really forgotten about the two of them. *Jie…* *Jie…*, Master Monkey is just going to sit here and watch the good show.”
Dragon s.h.i.+san’s laugh rang from inside, sounding as unscrupulous as Big Yellow. He was very clear about the blood demon kings. Although he had been staying in the wondrous rock for a long time, ever since he was kept by Jiang Chen, he knew everything that happened outside. It could be said that he had been watching Jiang Chen’s growth. That was why he had addressed Jiang Chen the way Jiang Chen’s brothers addressed him. It was also because Dragon s.h.i.+san looked up to Jiang Chen, and Jiang Chen being worthy of his attention.
One should know that an ancient battle spirit like Dragon s.h.i.+san was extremely terrifying. The pride in the bones of the legendary Battle Saint Ape was beyond ordinary people’s imagination. They would never make friends with ordinary people, because others couldn’t match their n.o.bility and pride. Only the people that they respected and acknowledged could be their ally.
Big Yellow was also the same. They were able to see the capabilities of Jiang Chen and had similar disposition as Jiang Chen, so they were destined to become good brothers that would fight side by side with each other.
Ahead, Yun Changxiao was already in front of the Crown Prince and his comrades, holding the cold and murderous sword.
Yun Zhangxiao pointed the long sword to a half-step Immortal Emperor in front.
“Do-don’t kill me.”
The person was s.h.i.+vering in fear. As a genius of Genius Prefecture, and a favourite follower of the Crown Price, he had never thought that he would die one day. He felt that he still had a bright future and could reach a height no ordinary people could achieve. This time, he had come to Golden Horizon with tremendous hopes and imagination. He dreamt that he could find incredible fortune and rise to power once he got out. The truth, however, was too cruel. He was going to die in just a matter of seconds. Only he knew how afraid he was.
Yun Zhangxiao didn’t give his opponent a chance. The long sword went into the glabella with a pu chi. Red blood spurted out. The man’s eyes were full of despair, unfortunately, his vital force was gone. He died instantly on the scene.
“Next, it’s your turn.” Yun Zhangxiao raised his sword and walked towards the other half-step Immortal Emperor.
“I’m going all out with you.”
The disciple lifted his sword and lunged at Yun Zhangxiao. He seemed to have more integrity than the others. Knowing that he wasn’t going to live, he didn’t expect his enemy to be kind to him. Rather than just stand and wait for his death, he took the initiative to attack and die in a more heroic way.
It was a pity that all his resistance was futile. The gap between the two was just too great. They were at two totally different levels. Even if he was at the peak of his condition, he still couldn’t compete against Yun Zhangxiao. Just like the Crown Prince, Yun Zhangxiao was also an early Immortal Emperor supreme expert.
Two men had already died in a matter of blinks. The Crown Prince and Yu Hao’s expression darkened pretty badly, as bad-looking as a mud. The Crown Prince dreaded death. The higher the position of the person, the more afraid he becomes towards death.
“Yun Zhangxiao. Do you really have to kill us all?” The Crown Prince said with reluctance.
“Crown Prince, don’t blame me. Try to imagine if I was the one to fall in your hands, will you show mercy to me?” Yun Zhangxiao held the two brocade pouches of the two he killed and spoke.
Listening to this, the Crown Prince went dead silent, because what Yun Zhangxiao said made him speechless. What Yun Zhangxiao said was right. If today’s situation was reversed, given the Crown Prince’s style of action, he would never give Yun Zhangxiao the chance to live. He might even do something worse than what Yun Zhangxiao is doing.
Aside from their hostile relations.h.i.+p, the fact that they could absorb the other’s luck and brocade pouch after killing the person was an enormous temptation.
“Come on and kill me now.” The Crown Prince gnashed his teeth. His eyes br.i.m.m.i.n.g with despair.
“Seventh Prince, don’t kill me. I will surrender myself to Great Cloud Empire. I’m a powerful alchemist and will bring great benefits to Great Cloud Empire. As long as you don’t kill me, I’m willing to follow by your side, and be your servant.”
Yu Hao’s knees fell to the ground with a puff. He didn’t want to die. Death was too scary to him. At this time, any pride and dignity should go to h.e.l.l!
