At least 4000 people had been killed in the battle. Jiang Chen had utterly offended almost all of the major powers from the three great Immortal Domains and also even the three great Immortal Courts. Although no one present dared to make any move, their hatred towards Jiang Chen didn’t reduce in the slightest. There had never been such a frenzied man throughout the history of the Immortal World. Jiang Chen was definitely the first.
With these deaths, the world outside would be thrown into chaos after the expedition ended, and Jiang Chen would never find shelter in the three great Immortal Domains. There was no doubt about it.
Most of the disciples of Yin Corpse Sect had died in the battle. There were even some major powers which disciples were nearly wiped out, such as Nanbei Family, Divine Line Sect and Yellow Spring Sect—the major powers that had earned the enmity of Jiang Chen. Each of these sects had sent roughly 200 geniuses, but now only less than 30 were left. Those people either died in Jiang Chen’s hands or when they were searching for treasures. The moment the higher-ups of these major powers saw that so few people had returned, they would probably spurt out a few mouthfuls of blood.
It was useless to say anything at this moment. The geniuses huddled together in the crowd, not daring to breathe normally, let alone speak. They knew very well that if they rushed out at this moment, Jiang Chen would surely eradicate all of them. They also knew that Jiang Chen would never have a second thought every time he acted.
The atmosphere was silent. At the moment, they could only wait for the inheritance of the Golden Clan to disappear, and for the exit of the Golden Horizon to open. Only then could they leave this place. That would mark the end of the expedition.
All of a sudden, one of the eighteen golden pa.s.sageways let out a powerful rumble. Terrifying energy was spread from it. It seemed like another powerful expert was going to emerge. The golden pa.s.sageways hadn’t closed since their opening. It should have alarmed all the people in the Golden Horizon. This cultivator must be pretty befuddled to arrive at this moment.
Numerous eyes turned to the direction and saw a blonde-haired man in golden robe appearing in the void. His qi was incredible, and his demeanor was full of arrogance. His eyes shone brightly, his face showing a look that disdained the whole world.
“Nanbei Chao has come.”
Han Yan couldn’t help but chuckle when he saw who the newcomer was. The current Nanbei Chao had gotten even stronger compared to the time when they fought him during the emergence of the Xiao Yao Qin. Just like Dragon s.h.i.+san, Nanbei Chao must have gotten some sort of treasures that pushed his cultivation base to the late Immortal Emperor realm. Given his current cultivation base, he could easily kill any half-step Immortal Venerable.
“This b.a.s.t.a.r.d showed up at such a bad time.”
Tyrant put his palms together and spoke ‘Amitabha’. It was tragic that Nanbei Chao encountered Jiang Chen at this time. If it was before, the emergence of such a powerful enemy would certainly give them tremendous pressure. After all, this b.a.s.t.a.r.d was too strong, and couldn’t find any worthy opponent amongst his peers.
But now, the people around weren’t feeling any relief. Even if Nanbei Chao went ballistic, the outcome was already imaginable. They understood the relations.h.i.+p between Jiang Chen and Nanbei Chao. Since they met each other again here, how could Jiang Chen miss the chance?
Nanbei Chao furrowed his brows after his appearance as he could smell the irritating stench of blood in the air, which indicated that an intense fight had taken place just now. After that, he cast his eyes onto Jiang Chen who was also looking at him. The corners of Jiang Chen’s mouth wore a plain smile, his eyes full of sneer.
However, Nanbei Chao, who was clueless about what had happened here, ignored Jiang Chen’s gaze. After all, he had never seen a warm expression on Jiang Chen’s face. Then, the Sun Divine Feather caught his eyes which suddenly sparkled brilliantly.
The Sun Divine Feather? Sure enough, the Golden Clan is a land of treasure. This b.a.s.t.a.r.d had even gotten the Sun Divine Feather.
Nanbei Chao was shocked. With the Eye of Heaven, he could see past everything. Additionally, he’s the reincarnation of a Great Sovereign. He was naturally able to recognize the divine feather that Jiang Chen was holding.
“Jiang Chen, surrender the Sun Divine Feather now.”
Nanbei Chao clamoured at Jiang Chen. The attraction of the Sun Divine Feather was just too great, making him forget to act cautiously like he usually does before making a move. He had failed to notice the frightened looks of the geniuses’ faces and figured where the stench of blood came from.
Moreover, he had always been self-centered. He would put no one in his eyes apart from himself. He was too arrogant to bother giving anyone a glance. He didn’t even care if figures like Zhang Yulang and Xia Xiaotian were present or not. There were only two things that caught his attention now, one was Jiang Chen and the other one was the Sun Divine Feather currently in Jiang Chen’s hand.
Now that he had reached the late Immortal Emperor realm, his desire to kill Jiang Chen surged. He would never forget the day when he was beaten up by them so badly that he had to run away with his tail between his legs. That had left a deep grudge in him. He must exterminate Jiang Chen and his friends. Only then could he regain his dignity.
“Nanbei Chao, come and get it yourself if you want the Sun Divine Feather,” said Jiang Chen in a plain tone filled with provocation.
Killing intent shot out of his eyes once more, condensing into a solid substance. He would never let go of the good chance of killing Nanbei Chao, just like what Nanbei Chao did to him.
“Humph! I’ll kill you today.”
With a cold humph, Nanbei Chao lunged at Jiang Chen. At this moment, a genius from Nanbei Family’s group rushed out, blocking in front of him.
“Don’t fight, Young Master Chao.”
That genius’ face was full of dread. He spoke via divine sense, telling Nanbei Chao everything that happened earlier.
After listening to this, Nanbei Chao’s facial expression changed greatly. The way he looked at Jiang Chen had also changed. If this wasn’t coming from the genius of his family, he would never believe it for he knew that the geniuses of his family would never dare to deceive him.
“Haha! Go ahead and fight, Nanbei Chao. Didn’t you call yourself a Monarch? Could it be that even the majestic Monarch has fears?”
Han Yan gave out a loud laugh. How could he miss the chance to mock Nanbei Chao?
Nanbei Chao harrumphed coldly. Without saying another word, he turned and left. It was definitely the first time that someone made the proud Nanbei Chao leave voluntarily. Nanbei Chao was no fool. Although he was very confident in his strength, it hadn’t reached the extent where he could compete with the Sun Divine Feather. Even Zhang Yulang’s group had been killed in an instant. He would also probably die as well if he confronted it head-on.
